      • Seenu

        Keep your word. You should be here exactly after 42 hours. Without U the tsunami updates cannot be known from any other sources. Even BBC and CNN coverage of the tsunami is not extensive and clear as yours. I don’t know what profession you do but you can do a very good work if you join press reporting. 😀

        Have a nice pilgrimage.

  3. Tis s not the right time to reveal the upcoming cyclone track but two of the gfs predicted tat the kheila going to veer in North direction and make a landfall in myanmar coast.

  7. HISTORY BECKONS

    History beckons M.A. Chidambaram Stadium. The relationship between the crowd in Chennai and Tendulkar is a symbiotic one.

    Chepauk awaits an astonishing 100th international hundred from the maestro with bated breath. There are definite indications that the surface at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium will continue to assist the spinners.

  8. There are clear indications that India might bring in Ashwin for either Ashish Nehra or Munaf Patel. The ball has tended to reverse too in these conditions and Zaheer Khan will be a distinct threat.

    The breeze from the Bay of Bengal flowing through the large gaps between the stands has encouraged conventional swing as well.

    • from QF stage anyone can win. THere are no favorites. Its just 1 bad day or 1 good day or 1 super performance will see a side through. I seriously think any of the 8 teams including the WI can win. Just imagine Pollard has one of his good days.

  9. Sachin Tendulkar will be playing his 450th ODI and he needs 47 runs to reach 18000 ODI runs. He is also looking for his 100th century!

    • India does not deserve to be world champs. Actually no teams does. There is no team that is playing decent cricket. Indian batting collapsed again. Our bowling is even worse. But it is still an open world cup.

  10. OSAKA: The number of people confirmed dead or listed as missing in Japan neared 21,000 on Sunday, nine days after a massive earthquake and tsunami struck.

  17. Japan’s reconstruction may take 5 yrs: World Bank

    Japan may need five years to rebuild from the catastrophic earthquake and tsunami that has caused up to $235 billion of damage, the World Bank has said.

    The March 11 disaster, which killed more than 8,600 people and left more than 12,800 missing, and ravaged northeastern Japan will likely shave up to 0.5 percentage point from the country’s economic growth this year, the bank said in a report. The impact will be concentrated in the first half of the year, it said.

    “Damage to housing and infrastructure has been unprecedented,” the World Bank said. “Growth should pick up though in subsequent quarters as reconstruction efforts, which could last five years, accelerate.

  18. Interesting info about Hail!

    Hail forms on condensation nuclei such as dust, insects, or ice crystals, when supercooled water freezes on contact. Hailstones are usually from the size of a pea to the size of a golfball.

    In clouds containing large numbers of supercooled water droplets, these ice nuclei grow quickly at the expense of the liquid droplets because the saturation vapor pressure over ice is slightly less than the saturation vapor pressure over water.

    If the hailstones grow large enough, latent heat released by further freezing may melt the outer shell of the hailstone. The growth that follows, usually called wet growth, is more efficient because the liquid outer shell allows the stone to accrete other smaller hailstones in addition to supercooled droplets. These winds hold the rain and freeze it.

    As the process repeats, the hail grows increasingly larger. Once a hailstone becomes too heavy to be supported by the storm’s updraft it falls out of the cloud. When a hailstone is cut in half, a series of concentric rings, like that of an onion, is revealed. These rings reveal the total number of times the hailstone had traveled to the top of the storm before falling to the ground.

  19. Kea, do u remember when did Chennai received its proper Summer/SWM/Evening shower last year? In May or June???

    I knew we were expecting it daily by looking at thundercloud formation over W/NW..but everytime Bangalore, Salem areas benefitted….we had to wait for a long time..but wen it started, we surpassed even B’lore 🙂

  22. An earthquake of magnitude 5.8 on Monday hit Kashmir valley, prompting people to rush out of buildings fearing repeat of the 2005 tremor which devastated several border areas of the valley.

    The tremor with its epicentre in the Hindu Kush mountain range in Afghanistan occurred around 3.20pm and lasted for three seconds, MeT officials said.

    The jolt was felt in almost all parts of the valley including Srinagar.

  23. Solar Theory Emerges the Most Plausible explanation to Earthquakes

    “Just hours after the horrific earthquake and tsunami devastated coastal areas of Japan, global warming alarmists like the BBC are already injecting climate change propaganda into their coverage of the story, hastily exploiting the tragedy as a vehicle through which to push their increasingly desperate and discredited enviro-fascist agenda.

    If you thought that climate change alarmists wouldn’t be so insensitive as to build their warped argument on the bodies of freshly dead corpses, then think again.”

    Global warmists now claim that the recent double whammy, earthquake and Tsunami, suffered by Japan were on account of Global Warming.

    So let’s begin by checking global temperatures. As seen in the above graph, the last two months (January & February) UAH Satellite data indicates that average global temperature anomaly has slipped into the negative band due to the La Niña effect. Temperatures are back to those of the seventies cooling. In Japan, is still in winter. Victims of these recent extreme events in Japan have to face snow and sub-zero temperatures, which is the reason India sent tons of blankets – to make our small relief contribution count! So what global warming are we talking about?

  27. Pressure on India in quarterfinal: Nielsen

    Australia will head into their “mini—final” quarterfinal match against India with a “no—fear” attitude as the pressure of playing at home would be on Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s men, feels coach Tim Nielsen.

    Nielsen said they were hoping to meet India in the final of the World Cup but now that they are clashing with the co—hosts in the quarters, Australia would be treating the Ahmedabad game as a “mini—grand final“.
