World's First Lab produced meat to be used in hamburgers

All the Cow, Goat and hens are having a party after this news. As their life might be spared forever. Not only their lives but it might crush the whole meat industry forever.
Lab Grown Hamburger
Scientists are aiming to produce skeletal muscle tissue in the laboratory that will be exactly similar to that of meet. in the coming month or so, a planned media event will be organized for the meat hamburger eating ceremony in which a celebrity will be tasting the first lab grown meat inside a hamburger. The ingredients for his first burger are "still in a laboratory phase," but by fall "they have committed to make a couple of thousand of small tissues, and then assemble them into a hamburger."

Growing meat on a bone in lab
might look like this
The project is funded by anonymous who has contributor a stagring amount of 250,000-euro ($330,000) contribution to turn the dream into reality.

for the record Meat production already takes up more than half of the world's estimated agricultural capacity, in one way or another. U.N. figures show that animal farming takes up 30 percent of the planet's exposed land mass. And over the next 40 years, the demand for meat products is expected to double.

So let's wait and watch when our stomach will be digesting a lab grown meet which has never been a part of any animal .. sounds weird ain't it?

A Time Traveller, caught on tape

This is the first time 'A Time Traveller is caught on tape". The video has become a sensation and is the talk of blogosphere. In case you missed it somehow, just watch it now.

If you have not been able to figure it all out yet. There is a lady/man holding a cell phone and talking. Not amazed yet? The clip is from Charlie Chaplin's  footage on a DVD of the premiere of Charlie Chaplin's The Circus at Graumann's Chinese Theatre in 1928.

No one even know what Cell Phone was in 1928, it was until 1983 that cell phones were invented. The question is "Did this person gone back to the past?" This is not the best part, the question is whom this lad/lady is talking to, another time traveller? well I am just guessing.

To get the full details of who posted this video in YouTube with this revelation. Check the link:

The company is seeking to raise 5 Billion dollars through IPO. The complete IPO document can be seen here.

Facebook a tiny company which started in Feb 2004, has made a big mark now. Given below are some of the Facebook stats in the document for the IPO.

  • Advertising make 85% of revenue.
  • Net Profit in 2011 : $1Billion
  • Zuckerbergs base salary was $500,000 in 2011 which is more than triple the salary of Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin when Google filed for its IPO.

  • Facebook now has 845million active users.
  • Facebook makes 12% of its bottom line income from Zynga games.

Facebook finance 2009-2011
Risk Factors:
  • Increased SmarPhone Users: Google ads are not shown on mobile phones and google makes 85% or its revenue from mobile phones.
  • Competitors: Facebook competitors are Google+, Cyworld in korea, Mixi in Japa, Orkut in India and Brazil and VKontakte in Russia.
  • Mark Xuckerberg is control to much of the Facebook i.e. 58% of the Facebook stock. so any wrong decision on his part could lead the company to disaster.
  • Users fleeing the website: The less user visits the site the less profit FB makes.
  • Design Changing too Much: Users never like changing the desigin of facebook so quickly. and this may result in not liking leaving Facebook.
