PDAs for You
These days professionals crave for a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA), that is easy to carry and simple to use and not to forget the world of benefits that a PDA offers to one. PDAs are quite affordable these days; besides, they are sleek and useful.
If you too want to own a quality PDA and keep up with the latest computer technology, pay a visit to G.S.M. Mobile Communication, located on Kemal Ataturk Avenue. The various model of Chinese palm One PDAs available at this outlet include:
Zire (Tk.6, 950), Zire 21 (Tk.9, 950), Zire 71 (worth Tk.17, 950 and comes with a built-in camera), Tungsten e (Tk.16, 950) and, Tungsten t3 (Tk.29, 950).
The shop also provides upgrading facility and software for these palmtops. And since these palmtops come with a one-year warranty, after sales support is also offered to the customers.
These PDAs are aimed at attracting students, businessmen, medical experts, salespersons etc. Actually, each Palmone model is catered to a particular group of people.
PDAs are small and lightweight. You can carry one around in your pocket rather than carrying massive textbooks in a large carrying case. A PDA can be used for E-books along with other applications such as MS Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Access, date book, calendar, telephone list, and wireless internet.
To get your work done quickly, to make decisions with fewer hassles, start planning to purchase a PDA in the near future.

No more tears
Those of us, who cook, must be aware of the long tearful session that follows soon after we lay our hands on onions. But many a cuisine would simply be tasteless without the flavour of onion. And then think about those vegetable salads that we prepare at home…Will they ever look complete without slices of onions? In order to prevent those tears rolling down your cheeks try the following tricks.
Place onions in the freezer for five to six minutes before slicing them, as this will bring fewer tears to your eyes.
To prevent onions from tearing up your eyes, light a candle near you. The heat and light from the candle will make the whole slicing session less tearful.
You can also wash the onions thoroughly in a bowl of water before you start slashing them. Washing will get rid of some of the biting juices from the onions.
To eliminate the sharp smell of onions off your hands and kitchen counters rub them with a paste of baking soda and water. You can also rub your hands in vinegar before and after cutting onions in order to get rid of the sharp onion odour.

Restaurateur flies to aid flood victims
Star chef of Bangladesh Tommy Miah, flew to Dhaka in an urgent attempt to increase aid to thousands of people hit by the worst flood since 1998.
Around three million people are reported marooned in the north-eastern Sylhet region where he spent his childhood. Thousands of villagers have seen their homes swept away by rivers swollen by a month's incessant rain.
Hundreds of schools have been closed, road and rail links inundated, and the main regional airport shut for days. Crops have been destroyed, including the vital summer rice harvest, and survivors are desperately short of food, drinking water, clothes and medicines.
The Moulvibazar area where Tommy spent his first 10 years in a tiny remote village is one of the worst hit. Another badly hit place is Habiganj where a monsoon refuge on high ground was built as a result of a Scottish fundraising campaign he organised.
