Get Clear, Smooth Skin

1. Be healthy! Exercising regularly gives you a beautiful healthy glow, and can actually improve the condition of your skin. Drink lots of water, 8 cups a day, to help your skin to be healthy, and try to eat healthy, too. For example, don't eat loads of fatty, greasy foods like fries and burgers.

2. Go to a chemist, supermarket, or beauty shop, and buy make-up removing wipes, cleansing lotion, toner, moisturizer, and facial scrub or antibacterial soap. Make sure you get them for your skin type, eg. sensitive skin, dry skin. As long as it is a reputable store, their own brand should be cheaper, but the same quality as expensive brands.

3. Wash your face twice a day In the morning, splash your face with cold water for about 10 seconds. Then pat dry with a washcloth or facial sponge. This helps stimulate blood flow and is really good for the skin. Then get hot steamy water in a cup or bowl and place your face above the water. This will open up your pores. Then wash your face with a oil-free cleanser. Apply toner or lemon juice then moisturize. It is also good to moisturize before you go to bed.
4. Take off your make up with the wipes every night before you go to sleep. Wash your face with warm water again, use toner, and moisturizer.

5. Make an emergency zit kit including a zit cream that has salicylic acid and/or benzoyl peroxide, a cream that reduces redness, a concealer stick, and translucent powder (the powder should absorb excess oils on your face). Of course, this is completely optional, but very useful.

6. Wait a few weeks; you should notice that your skin becomes smoother and clearer.

7. Remember if all else fails, go see a dermatologist.

HIGH Energy Foods

Eating high energy food keeps you fresh all the day and provides strength to complete the daily tasks. Fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, eggs, etc., are some of the healthy foods that provide you high energy. Of course, even a bar of chocolate with a glass of energy drink, also provides high energy, but this energy won't last for the whole day. Thus, one should be aware of the foods that provide long lasting energy and those which provide instant short-term energy. Healthy high energy foods are foods that are high in complex carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins and minerals, and which contain low amount of sugar, cholesterol and fats. Also note that many of these useful high energy foods are low in calories and still provide lot of energy to the body. Now, let us take a look at some high energy foods for women and men.
Beans: Beans are wonderful natural energy boosters with loads of health benefits. One of the important features of beans is, they are low in glycemic index and hence are some of the best high energy foods for diabetic patients. They are excellent sources of complex carbohydrates and thus are good fuel for the body. They absorb the bad cholesterol in the body and help to maintain a healthy cholesterol level. Beans are rich sources of important minerals required by the body, which include, potassium, magnesium, calcium and iron. With so many different types of beans, you can prepare variety of recipes from beans and enjoy there nutritional benefits. Read more on beans nutrition facts.

This is a useful high energy food because it slows the process of glucose absorption and hence maintains high energy levels for longer period. Oats also contain vitamins and minerals, which include zinc and B-complex vitamins.

So, if you feel tired all the time and want to re-energize yourself, then include the above mentioned high energy foods in your diet and feel fresh all the time.

The Truth of Friendship

Friday, October 29, 2010 | 0 comments

Friends are only friends if they are willing to tell you the truth. Otherwise, they are just mere acquaintances.

It saddens and frustrates me when friends don't tell friends the truth. I mean, when someone complains about the same thing over and over again (or the same person over and over again i.e. if they can't forgive someone or see their innocence), perhaps someone should tell them...HEY BUD, IT's YOU!

I remember a friend of mine crying to me one night about how he is so trusting with people but they always let him down. I told my friend right then and there that it wasn't about trusting people, it was about his discernment. He called it trust so he could blame them if the relationship didn't go his way. He was not taking responsibility for his part in it. That's the truth for so many of us.

Now, just to be clear...you must be a good friend, a friend that has the ability to listen beyond the story being told i.e. does not put loyalty above the truth.

A good friend doesn't believe there is only one version to any story... there is always two. A good friend may say things like, "Man that sucks" but they also follow that up with ... "and what was your part in it?" Maybe not in that same moment but in a moment that follows...the moment of true friendship.

What I have come to realize is, sadly, some people don't want the truth. They don't want truth friends. They don't want to be called out or called on to change themselves or their version of the story. Heck, they are so busy weaving a story they probably don't know what the truth is anymore.

Telling a story is the way we give our life meaning. So I understand the seduction of it. Yet inside the story we are either taking responsibility or blaming. What is your intention when you tell a story? Do you want people to 'side' with you? Do you want to find the lessons in the story? Do you want to search for the truth for each person in the story?

How do you know if the people in your life are true friends? Who will call you on the stories you tell that are just plain stories?

Ask yourself:
Are you able to hear feedback without getting defensive?
And if you do get defensive, can you admit it?
Do you ask your friends "is it me?"
Are you willing to hear the answer?

You might have people in your life that you feel are true friends, but true friends will never agree with you one hundred percent of the time. They can't. Sometimes you are just wrong and they are the ones that you can trust to tell you.

So do you have true friends?

Do you give your friends the space to question you, i.e. go deeper or see the other persons point of view? Are you committed to the truth more than being right?

If you want to be right, forget it. Your friends can't help you and your friends have learned a long time ago that you don't want their help. They KNOW you want to be right and personally, a commitment to being right is so small-minded.

As A Course in Miracles says: Do you want to be right or do you want to be happy?

Sure, being right feels good. No one can argue that. But personally, I want to be happy. And sometimes it is my friends that help me get there.

Canon EOS 550D DSLR

Monday, October 25, 2010 | 0 comments

 Canon has unveiled the latest in its long line of consumer digital SLRs, the Rebel T2i (EOS 550D). Highlights include 1080p HD video recording (with full manual control), an 18MP CMOS sensor, 3 inch 3:2 LCD with 1040k dot resolution and the 63-point iFCL metering system first seen on the EOS 7D. The new Rebel also offers a handful of less attention-grabbing upgrades, including redesigned buttons, 3.7 fps continous shooting, +/-5 stops exposure compensation and UI support for Eye-Fi cards. We spent a little time with a pre-production EOS 550D last week and have produced a detailed hands-on preview and (quick) gallery of Beta samples - check it out after the link...

Less than a year after the launch of the EOS Rebel T1i (500D) comes the latest in Canon's hugely popular consumer SLR range, the Rebel T2i (EOS 550D). With the 450D and 500D Canon appeared to be pulling away slightly from the real 'entry level' (a sector driven almost entirely by price), and the EOS 550D - on paper at least - is no exception, outgunning many of the 'upper entry level' and mid range SLRs on the market today in terms of spec. To ensure it doesn't lose out at the price-sensitive DSLR entry point Canon is once again introducing its new flagship Rebel as a 'sister' product to the camera it ostensibly replaces. The EOS 500D (Rebel T1i) will be staying in the range for the rest of 2010 (at, one presumes, a more attractive price point). We would assume that the new model finally spells the end of the line for the current 'bargain' Canon, the venerable Rebel XSi (EOS 450D).

In many respects the EOS 550D is a 'baby EOS 7D'. As well as getting a resolution boost to a class-leading 18 megapixels and a significantly upgraded movie mode (which now offers full HD capture at up to 30 fps, has full manual control and the option to use an external stereo microphone), the EOS 550D gets the 7D's sophisticated new metering system (bringing it a lot closer to similarly positioned Nikon SLRs). It also sports a new widescreen (3:2) LCD panel, has improved button design and finally offers the ability to customize the Auto ISO function.

It's clear Canon has been feeling the heat from the aggressive competition it faces from the numerous feature-laden cameras offered by Nikon, Pentax, Sony and Olympus in this market sector, and has decided to throw down the gauntlet with the most highly-specced Rebel we've ever seen. We'll reserve judgment on whether it's destined to be a class-leader until we've got a final production sample in for review, and I'm sure there's plenty of you interested to see how well it does too. As it stands we've managed to get hold of a pre production sample for a day in order to produce this brief hands-on preview to tide you over.

Why do people cry?

Sunday, October 24, 2010 | 0 comments

Both animals and humans can produce tear but the reason for tears can be different in both of them. Tear ducts are present below the upper eyelid which lubricates and protect our eyes from the dust particles. Human eyes produce three types of tears i.e. basal, reflex and emotional.

Basal tear
These are the primary tear which are released regularly and keeps the surface of eyes clean and lubricated. It forms the thin film with every blink to protect the eye.

Reflex tear
When some dust particle or micro organisms enters our eye then it responds by producing reflex tears. These tears have different chemical composition from the basal tears. That is why it makes the dust particles to leave the eyes more quickly than the basal tears. While cutting onion, suffering and seasonal allergies our eyes brim with tears and produces reflex tears to get rid of the sufferings. Amino acids sulfoxides are present in onion which is a kind of organic molecule. After cutting the onion skin, allinases (a type of enzymes) forms a mixture with sulfoxides to get sulphenic acid. When it comes in contact with the oxygen the sulfenic acid forms syn-propanethial-s-oxide and thiosulfinates which irritates our eyes and finally the eyes produce reflex tears.

Emotional tears
Emotional tears are produced when a person is in the extreme grip of a particular emotion like sadness, anger or sometimes happiness too. Our eyes also produce emotional tears when we are physically injured because our body cannot differentiate between physical and emotional pain.

Emotional tears contain more manganese which highly affects our temperament and also have the enough prolactin, a hormone which is responsible for the regulation of milk production in the body. So when eyes release manganese and prolactin through eyes which drop down the stress and tension level by which the person feels better than before.

Prolactin level is more in women as compared to men which is used while nursing infants and feeding. At that time women feel calmer, sleepy and relaxed because of the release of prolactin.

Beside all this emotional tears are one of the sources of communication. This is the only way for the babies to communicate and inform their parents that they are feeling pain or something is disturbing them. While in adults crying creates a bond with the other person. Crying is a definite proof for the others that the person is in the extreme of a particular emotion for e.g. during funeral crying shows the extremity of sadness. Sometimes people cry because of extreme happiness or getting the unexpected thing which he wants desperately. Most of the people cry after watching an emotional movie which doesn’t mean that yor are total after all but it shows that the person is normal and have feelings. Some researchers say that the people who cry more frequently enjoy good health.

It has not been proved yet that do animals also shed tears because of emotional reasons but it is proved by the scientists in the case of humans and they cannot control the tears when they are in the extreme of a particular emotion.

Women can cry more frequently than the men not only because of higher prolactin level but also their crying is more acceptable than the men in the society.

How Do I Gain Weight?

How Can I Be Underweight?

The high prevalence of obesity and overweight problems in our culture means much more emphasis is placed on losing weight rather than gaining weight. It is easy to forget about people who have the problem of being too thin.

Being underweight can result from eating disorders, chronic diseases, and it is also a concern for athletes and naturally thin people who wish to be bigger, stronger, and more muscular. Elderly people may become underweight. The gradual loss of taste and smell, or the inability to prepare healthy meals, results in becoming too thin.

While being overweight or obese is a well-known risk factor for chronic diseases, being too thin may also increase a person's risk of dying from diseases such as heart failure and cancer. Elderly women who are underweight may become frail, which means they are more likely to suffer from osteoporosis and hip fractures. Being underweight may also increase a man's chance of erectile dysfunction.

What To Eat To Gain Weight

Increasing your intake of junk foods and greasy foods is not a good way to gain weight. Junk foods usually contain unhealthy trans fats or saturated fats. Even though you need to increase your calorie consumption to gain weight, those calories should come from foods that are good for you.

Healthy fats include omega-3 essential fatty acids sources like tuna, salmon, flax, and walnuts. Good sources of protein include lean meats, fish, poultry, nuts, seeds and legumes. Healthy carbohydrate sources include fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

It may be easier to eat five or six smaller balanced meals per day rather than eating three large meals, especially if you are not used to eating much at one sitting.

Protein powders and nutritional supplement drinks can be added as in-between meal snacks if you still need more calories. Some protein powders are flavored and only need added water and some others can be blended with your choice of juice or milk to improve the taste.

It would also be a healthy idea to add a small amount of flax seed oil and some psyllium powder to add some omega-3 essential fatty acids and extra fiber.

Dietary Supplements and Gaining Weight

A high-quality multivitamin and mineral supplement is a good idea to make sure you are getting all of the vitamins and minerals you need. Some people find that their muscle mass increases with protein supplements that contain certain blends of amino acids such as creatine and glutamine. Some people who are very ill may need liquid nutritional preparations that are available through their doctors.

Resistive Exercise To Gain Weight

Exercise is also important for healthy weight gain. Resistance training exercises such as lifting weights will help to increase your muscle size. Aerobic exercises such as running and stationary bicycling are better for fat loss and excessive aerobic training may cause you to lose more weight. Resistance training can be done at a health club, gym or at home with the proper equipment. Remember that it can take a while to gain the weight you need, but be patient and continue to choose healthy foods until you reach your goal weight.

Tools to Help You Gain Weight

Use these tips and tools to help gain weight:
  • Start with this Calorie and Nutrition Guide to find out how many calories you will need to reach the weight you desire.
  • Use a food diary to track your calorie intake to be sure you are getting all of the calories and foods that you need.
  • You can also use an online program such as Calorie Count to track your calorie intake, your exercise and your changes in weight. Calorie Count Plus has a large data base of nutrition information for almost any food you like to eat.
  • Add healthy calories to breakfast with an extra slice of whole-grain toast and peanut butter.
  • Mid-morning and afternoon snacks should be nutritious, not junk. Trail mixes contain healthy nuts, dried fruits and can add healthy calories to your diet.
  • Don't add calories to your meals by choosing unhealthy fried foods such as french fries, chicken nuggets and fish sticks. Choose healthy foods such as baked potatoes, baked chicken and fish, just make your portions a bit bigger.
  • Keep your meals balanced. One meal should have a healthy protein source such as fish, low fat meat, chicken or legumes plus two or three servings of vegetables. Green vegetables add lots of vitamins and phytonutrients while starchy potatoes and corn add extra calories.
  • Drink healthy beverages such as milk and fruit juices to add calories. Don't choose sugary sodas, which only add calories and no nutrition.
  • Design a weight training program with help from About.com's exercise site and our weight training site.

Sleep Deprivation

It's hard enough having just a few hours of sleep a night, but when you're not sleeping at all, it can be seriously depressing and frustrating. The figures are not known precisely, but hundreds of people commit suicide each year due to sleep related disorders. Not sleeping can have a heavy impact on a person's life and drive them to do desperate things.

Chronic insomnia is debilitating. Its crippling effects it can have on a person's psychological and physical health should not be overlooked. Most people may understand what it feels like to have a bad night sleep, but very few know what it's like to be a chronic insomniac. Not sleeping or barely sleeping night after night for months and years is not a condition to be taken lightly.

Chronic insomnia can change a person's outlook on life completely. Imagine feeling exhausted and miserable every day. Imagine lying in bed every night with nothing but worrying thoughts going through your head. Imagine tossing and turning and not sleeping a wink only to see the sun come up. Imagine getting up to go to work everyday, completely exhausted, irritated, with low self-esteem and confidence. Often insomniacs feel much worse than this.

It's no wonder depression and anxiety disorders are so prevalent in sleep sufferers. Not sleeping for one night can make a normal sleeper feel depressed, experience low mood and feel easily irritable and frustrated. Imagine feeling like this everyday? It's depressing just thinking about it.

Chronic insomniacs feel desperate. All they want is half a decent night sleep, and yet night after night they find themselves not sleeping, no matter how tired and drowsy they are. And that's one of the hardest things to deal with for a sufferer - being so utterly exhausted and still not being able to sleep.

Consider that in some countries, sleep deprivation is used as a form of torture. Yes, that's right inflicted sleeplessness as a form of torture. It just proves what a terrible condition this can be. Often prisoners who are tortured or interrogated under this method agree that nothing comes close to the immense desire to sleep.

There's of course a difference between not sleeping, and wanting to and being forced to stay awake, however the effects of both are comparable. Blurred vision, decreased mental activity, dizziness, confusion, hallucinations and memory loss - these are all things that insomniacs never get used to, but have to live with on a daily basis.
Short-term effects of sleep deprivation: 
  1. Decreased daytime alertness. Loss of 1 ½ hours sleep can result in a 30-35% reduction in daytime alertness.
  2. Tiredness and feeling a need for 0a nap
  3. Irritability, edginess and moodiness
  4. Headache
  5. Loss of balance and coordination
  6. Inability to tolerate stress
  7. Memory lapses and difficulty concentrating
  8. Learning, behavioral or social problems
  9. Blurred vision
  10. Vague body discomfort
  11. Changes in appetite
  12. Feeling lazy
  13. Hypnagogic hallucinations (the state between being awake and falling asleep. For some people, this is a time of visual and auditory hallucination.
  14. Uncooperative attitude
  15. Hallucinations, delusions and illusions (Hallucinations are false perceptions that occur in the absence of appropriate external stimuli, whereas illusions are misinterpretations of external stimuli that are, in fact, present).

The Death of MySpace

People surf the web...and people are fickle. Welcome to the world of Internet social networking. In recent days, the once popular MySpace has been forced to make major changes in the face of their fading popularity. With Facebook and Twitter taking center stage, the once powerful and popular MySpace is being forced to "clear" space.

Rise and Fall of MySpace

Social networking site, MySpace, will have to cut jobs in order to survive an unpleasant trend. The site plans to cut an estimated 30% of its workforce in the face of a rapid decline in popularity. MySpace will now have roughly 1,000 employees. The social network has not been able to keep pace with the wildfire known as Twitter and Facebook.
Membership and time spent on the site has been in a steady decline since the turn of the year. In 2005, MySpace was purchased by media genius Rupert Murdoch's NewsCorp. At the time of purchase MySpace was the leading social network on the Internet. However, like any current trend, days pass and people change.

According to a recent study, an estimated 73% spent time on MySpace in April of 2008. However, one year removed, only 23% spent their time on the social networking site. During this decline competitor, Facebook, was hitting a mark of 66%.

Facebook is King

When one man falls, another man rises. In the case of social networking, the fall of MySpace meant the crowning of Facebook. The social network is now the leader of the pack. Researches say Facebook caters to a wide range of people and offers more diversity and ways to interact.
MySpace now has a younger demographic and leads all social networking outlets in respect to media entertainment. The current status suggests people frequent MySpace for their media needs…but not to socialize.

Can MySpace Recover

The history of Internet social networking has one constant pattern; once you fall...you stay down. History shows that no site has been able to fully recover from a substantial dip in popularity. Once a person leaves for a new network(s), they rarely come back.

Also, the more "adult" crowd that Facebook has obtained has more buying power than the MySpace demographic so advertisers are more likely to cater to the Facebook social outlet. It is estimated that the popularity of social networks seems to be less than two years. So what's "hot" today could be a distant memory in 24 months.

This means even the popular Facebook and Twitter will one day face the same music as the declining MySpace. "Technology will evolve to the point where it leaves MySpace, Facebook or Twitter behind," said Jon Gibs, vice president of media analytics for Nielsen Online. So…make your final "tweet" and compose one last wall post...because the clock is ticking.

Facebook ??

Facebook - a popular name among those who are so into it. Individuals who have an account in Facebook are now using more of their time to socialize with other people amidst the distance and lack of time. And even if a community like Facebook serves numerous advantages, it also proves to have certain disadvantages as well. There are now series of improvements in the system just to make up with the shortcomings. Arguments regarding the different advantages and disadvantages of Facebook are stated below.


· Allows user search for new and old friends
· Accessible to chosen universities having a high level of security
· Makes it less awkward when communicating with strangers or people you are not familiar with
· Love attraction - can be used as a dating service system
· Makes it easier to join groups having similar likes and dislikes
· Allows members to check students who are taking the same class, living within the same area, or coming from the same academy


· Overcrowding
· Weakening long distance relationship
· Unsupported by physical adjacency
· Contributes wide-range procrastination
· Rampant addiction
· Stalking is possible
· Acquaintances be labeled as friends

Surely, the disadvantages don't pose a threat to you just by merely looking at it. Someone else has to prove that what users do with their profile is directly in proportion with what can happen to them. A user must understand what he is trying to give out otherwise things might get messy and people will mistook them as someone else.

It is quite obvious that a trade off is happening between the advantages and disadvantages of Facebook. While it increases the communication and connection between friends and the online community it also increases the risk of procrastination and makes it easier for others to stalk a user. Worse, some are actually punished for what they put on their profile and would claim that it was there only for fun.

Despite the above mentioned advantages and disadvantages of an online networking service, it still is gaining demand and popularity among the young crowd. There are about 10,000 students (professionals and young professionals not yet included) who are joining into Facebook every day. This is regardless of the age, race and country. Some are now trying to criticize the status of professionalism of this site whether it's just another fad like other online networking services are.

Canon EOS 60D DSLR

Canon has unveiled the EOS 60D mid-level DSLR, replacing the EOS 50D. However, following the launch of the EOS 7D, the 60D has been repositioned in the market, so isn't a simple upgrade to its predecessor. Instead the 60D is a smaller camera featuring an articulated screen and plastic body shell and utilizing SD memory cards. It combines the 18MP CMOS sensor and 1040k dot 3.0" LCD from the EOS 550D (Rebel T2i) with the AF system from the 50D. Meanwhile it gains the 7D's HD movie capability. We've had a chance to use a pre-production 60D so have prepared a hands-on preview, including sample images and movies.

London, UK, 26th August 2010 - Canon today announces the latest addition to its world-famous EOS series of Digital SLR (DSLR) cameras – the new EOS 60D. Replacing the EOS 50D, the EOS 60D is designed for photographers who want to take their skills to the next level, offering high performance, a series of creative features, a Vari-angle LCD screen and enhanced ergonomics – empowering photography enthusiasts to capture outstanding stills and Full High Definition (HD) video for unique, creative results.
 High speed, high resolution
With an 18 Megapixel APS-C sensor, the EOS 60D offers high levels of detail and a magnification of 1.6x the focal length of the lens to capture poster-size images in a variety of aspect ratios*1. Canon’s powerful DIGIC 4 technology rapidly processes image information captured from the CMOS sensor’s four-channel output, providing outstanding colour reproduction, as well as high-speed shooting at 5.3fps in bursts of 58 full-resolution JPEGs.

A standard ISO range of 100-6400 is extendable to 12800, providing smooth images with minimal noise in low light conditions. A 9-point, all cross-type autofocus (AF) system also provides swift and accurate focusing, with an extra-sensitive centre point for lenses faster than f/2.8, allowing photographers to artistically employ a shallow depth of field during portraiture or for more atmospheric shooting.

The EOS 60D features Canon’s iFCL metering system, first introduced with the acclaimed EOS 7D, with a 63-zone Dual-Layer sensor.  Information on subject location is gathered from the Auto Focus system, and is combined with colour and luminance readings for consistent accurate exposures whatever the situation. The Integrated Speedlite transmitter also provides in-camera control of multiple EX flash units for more creative lighting.

Shoot from all angles
A new 7.7cm (3.0”) Vari-angle wide LCD monitor features a 3:2 aspect ratio and a 1,040k dot resolution, providing added flexibility and allowing photographers to view their images in incredible detail. The Vari-angle wide LCD helps frame shots from difficult angles, and can be positioned with Live View enabled to achieve the desired composition if shooting isn’t possible using the viewfinder. The ability to capture wildlife portraits, overhead shots or ground-level photography is instantly enhanced, and the surface of the screen features an anti-reflective, water-repellent coating to protect the screen allows easy viewing in bright light and from a variety of angles.

Empowering creativity
A new Basic + function makes it easy for photographers to add their own creative touch to images without worrying about changing settings. Photographers can add ambiance to a scene by shooting according to lighting and scene type, with Portrait, Landscape, Close-Up, Sport, Night Snapshot or Creative AUTO modes all available. Different effects can be achieved by shooting with Basic + enhancements such as Daylight, Cloudy or Sunset or pre-set Picture Styles including Vivid, Soft, Warm or Monochrome.
EOS Movies: Full HD video with complete control
Offering photographers the freedom to go beyond stills, the EOS 60D captures 1920x1080p HD video with a variety of user-selectable frame rates, including 30, 25 and 24fps, as well as 720p video at 60 and 50fps. Movie Crop mode is also available, recording with the central 640x480 pixel area of the sensor to create an effective magnification of approximately seven times the focal length of the lens.

Full manual control in Movie mode allows photographers to employ their own exposure and focus settings and take advantage of the effects achieved from Canon’s wide range of EF lenses. An external stereo microphone terminal and the ability to adjust sound recording level ensures the audio track recorded matches the visual quality of the video, capturing broadcast-quality sound.

For those who want to share images with friends and family, an integrated HDMI port is compatible with Consumer Electronics Control (HDMI-CEC), allowing video and images to be viewed on any compatible HD-ready TV and controlled via the TV remote.

Share the moment
For photographers who want to transfer content wirelessly, the EOS 60D includes Eye-Fi connected functions*2. The EOS 60D features a dedicated Eye-Fi section in the User Interface allowing WiFi functionality to be turned off when not required to save battery life
EOS 60D features at a glance:
  • 18 MP APS-C CMOS sensor
  • Advanced creative features with Basic +
  • Vari-angle 7.7cm (3.0”) 3:2 ratio LCD
  • Full HD movies with manual control

I’ll be back 넌 다시 나를 찾을 거야. 그때 다시 내가 올 거야.
그 누구도 너를 나보다 사랑 할 순 없기에.
갑자기 이럼 어떡해 난 어떻게 하란 말야 네가 도대체
어떻게 이래 난 네가 날 영원히 사랑할거란 말 믿었단 말야.
약속했잖아 영원히 변하지 말자고 우리는 분명 맺어진 짝이라고
분명히 맞다고. 네가 그렇게 얘기했잖아.

I’ll be back 넌 다시 나를 찾을 거야. 그때 다시 내가 올 거야.
그 누구도 너를 나보다 사랑 할 순 없기에.

You’ll be back 너는 다시 돌아 올 거야 그래서 널 보내는 거야
나는 알아 네가 나 없인 못산단 것을 I’ll be back.

넌 난 우린 헤어질 수 가 없어 네가 착각을 하나 봐
이건 누구나 한번쯤 겪는 고비일 뿐이야 정신차려.
다시 생각해 아무리 말을 해 줘봐도 이미 넌
말을 듣지 않아 메아리로 돌아오잖아

I’ll be back 넌 다시 나를 찾을 거야. 그때 다시 내가 올 거야.
그 누구도 너를 나보다 사랑 할 순 없기에.

You’ll be back 너는 다시 돌아 올 거야 그래서 널 보내는 거야
나는 알아 네가 나 없인 못산단 것을 I’ll be back.

Listen baby girl
그래 돌아서줄게 멋지게 남자답게 놓아줄게
그리고 널 귀찮게 하지 않게 말없이 저 뒤에서
죽은 듯이 서서 바라볼게 너는 모르게 그냥 멀리서
아주 많이 떨어져서 나의 존재를 네가 완전히 잊어버리게 UH~

But you better know that I’m not giving you away
Will I ever stop waiting no way
It’ll be the same in my world I’m your boy You’re my Girl.
잠깐 그댈 보내지만 난 네가 다시 돌아올 거란
걸 알아 그러니 걱정 말아 네가 쓰러질 때 I’ll be back.

Maher Zain Open Your Eyes Lyrics

Monday, October 18, 2010 | 0 comments

Look around yourselves
Can’t you see this wonder
Spreaded infront of you
The clouds floating by
The skies are clear and blue
Planets in the orbits
The moon and the sun
Such perfect harmony

Let’s start question in ourselves
Isn’t this proof enough for us
Or are we so blind
To push it all aside..

We just have to
Open our eyes, our hearts, and minds
If we just look bright to see the signs
We can’t keep hiding from the truth
Let it take us by surprise
Take us in the best way
Guide us every single day..
Keep us close to You
Until the end of time..

Look inside yourselves
Such a perfect order
Hiding in yourselves
Running in your veins
What about anger love and pain
And all the things you’re feeling
Can you touch them with your hand?
So are they really there?

Lets start question in ourselves
Isn’t this proof enough for us?
Or are we so blind
To push it all aside..?

We just have to
Open our eyes, our hearts, and minds
If we just look bright to see the signs
We can’t keep hiding from the truth
Let it take us by surprise
Take us in the best way
Guide us every single day..
Keep us close to You
Until the end of time..

When a baby’s born
So helpless and weak
And you’re watching him growing..
So why deny
Whats in front of your eyes
The biggest miracle of life..

We just have to
Open our eyes, our hearts, and minds
If we just look quiet we’ll see the signs
We can’t keep hiding from the truth
Let it take us by surprise
Take us in the best way
Guide us every single day..
Keep us close to You
Until the end of time..

Open your eyes and hearts and minds
If you just look bright to see the signs
We can’t keep hiding from the truth
Let it take us by surprise
Take us in the best way
Guide us every single day..
Keep us close to You
Until the end of time..
You created everything
We belong to You
Ya Robb we raise our hands
Forever we thank You..
