Her Diary:

Tonight, I thought my husband was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a nice restaurant for dinner. I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment on it. Conversation wasn’t flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk. He agreed, but he didn’t say much. I asked him what was wrong; He said, ‘Nothing.’ I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. He said he wasn’t upset, that it had nothing to do with me, and not to worry about it. On the way home, I told him that I loved him. He smiled slightly, and kept driving. I can’t explain his behavior I don’t know why he didn’t say, ‘I love you, too.’ When we got home, I felt as if I had lost him completely, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. He just sat there quietly, and watched TV. He continued to seem distant and absent. Finally, with silence all around us, I decided to go to bed.

His Diary:

Damn two foot putt.




Odd news from around the world

Would you take orders from a ROBOT? An artificial intelligence becomes the world’s first company director: “Robots have been creeping into our homes, streets and cities – and soon they could be dominating our boardrooms. In a world first, Japanese venture capital firm Deep Knowledge recently named an artificial intelligence (AI) to its board of directors. The robot, named Vital, was chosen for its ability to pick up on market trends ‘not immediately obvious to humans’. Vital is an ‘equal member’ of the Hong Kong-based group and the first ever software program to be appointed as a board member. The robot was developed by Aging Analytics UK who have licensed it out to Deep Knowledge to help make business decisions on therapies for age-related diseases. Vital (Validating Investment Tool for Advancing Life Sciences) will analyse trends in databases of life science companies in an effort to predict successful investments. The bot has already helped make two major investment decisions in life science companies, Pathway Pharmaceuticals and InSilico Medicine.

Another Spanish property collapse: “This is the Marina d’Or ‘Holiday City’ in Oropesa del Mar, north of Valencia on Spain’s Mediterreanan coast, which was to be one of the biggest high-density real estate projects of the country’s boom. But now, with the financial crisis having all but broken Spain, most of the complex’s homes and shops stand empty. Meanwhile, its developer has collapsed under the weight of its debts. Its owner, Jesus Ger, had planned to build the biggest holiday resort in Europe with 35,000 houses, three golf courses and even a miniature version of the Eiffel Tower. But his ambitions were done for by a devastating property slump and banking crisis which led to mass unemployment amid a rapidly shrinking job market. Now Holiday City is a ghost town, an echo of economic glory days that are long gone. A remote spot for romantic walks or quirky wedding photos. But not the resort that was dreamed of.

Chinese hospital tries to give patient care a lift by making its nurses dress as air hostesses: “Hospital bosses in China are hoping nursing standards will be sky high after introducing that involves giving staff special training as air hostesses. The idea is being introduced as a pilot project at Lianshui County Chinese Medicine Hospital in east China’s Jiangsu province where all staff working in the Chinese medicine ward are required to dress in the air hostess outfits. The move is seen as a way of addressing growing conflict in the country between staff and patients and their relatives. The aim of the project is to offer a new standard of care designed to defuse tense situations, and as it is a state funded hospital, the air hostess nurses are on hand for all patients in the ward. Recruitment for the voluntary program began in March, and the nurses involved as well as being fully qualified medically were given a supplementary month of training in areas such as communication by a real air hostess from China Eastern Airlines in April.”

Chinese road has huge pylon in middle: “In a bizarre town planning mix-up, a new road in Henan Province, China now has an enormous electricity pylon standing right in the middle of it. According to local news reports, the road developer planned the route without realising it ran right through the transmission tower, which has been in place since 2007. The power company and the road developers are currently in talks to resolve the issue, according to local media.”

They create a desert and call it an oasis: “Developers had aspired to build a nature park and scenic lake on the outskirts of Zhegzhou City in central China’s Henan province. But after their attempts to tap a natural water source went amiss, they ended up accidentally creating a huge artificial desert. Now, they have covered the sand dunes with thin plastic netting sheets in a bid to make them look like the beautiful oasis they had hoped for. And the sheets have been chosen in green to give the impression that the city is surrounded by picturesque, grass-covered hills. The initial plans for a nature park and lake went awry when developers tried to tap a natural water source and remove hundreds of thousands of tons of sand to make a hole for the lake. Far from their expectations, the underground water source dried up and the sand began to spread – creating a wasteland of parched and arid earth.”
