Steve Jobs and his family


(The article is not my own, I copied it from 
http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/steve-jobs-unusual-meeting-father-135624786.html,  co'z I myself is interested with his story).


In an interview with "60 Minutes" on Sunday evening, Steve Jobs' biographer Walter Isaacson revealed that the Apple founder actually did meet his biological father face-to-face once--even though neither man realized it at the time.
The intensely private Jobs sought out his biological mother and sister in the mid 1980s, saying that he felt something was missing from his life. He became very close with his biological sister, the novelist Mona Simpson. But he decided he didn't want to meet his father, Abdulfattah Jandali, who had left his mother when Mona was still young. (The couple gave Jobs up for adoption when they were both in graduate school.)
"I learned a little bit about him, and I didn't like what I learned," Jobs says in new audio recordings released by Isaacson. "I asked her to not tell him that we'd ever met and not tell him anything about me."
But it turns out they had already met, even though neither man realized it. When Mona Simpson tracked down Jandali, he told her about a restaurant he used to manage in Silicon Valley that was very popular. "Everybody used to come there, even Steve Jobs used to come there," he told her.  "He was a great tipper." Simpson was shocked, but didn't reveal that Jobs was Jandali's son.
"I remember meeting the owner who was from Syria, and it was most certainly him, and I shook his hand and he shook my hand and that's all," Jobs told Isaacson.
Jandali, now 80, said he sent Jobs' birthday emails after he found out he was his father, and claims that one time he received a response that just said "Thank you."

Best suits that expresses me


It's been five years now that I struggle what to wear specially whenever I'm invited for an event. I struggle because my clothes don't fit anymore and getting a new one is no easy thing to do as well.  This is one reason that I seldom buy   clothes. I'm just forced to do so when I needed it for a very special occasion. Being in the plus size made me look  very simple and plain because I tend to wear loose shirts and I wear a lot of t-shirts and jeans in particular.
I do envy my friends who carry themselves great even having a plus size, doing such things I think is a gift and skill. I don't think I have those gifts coz I cannot bring myself look  that great as they are. I actually wish that someday I'll be able to wear a this ultimated double weaved rouched sleeve jacket"  whose image I put below is really a very fashionable suit a woman could ever want. It actually made me fancy myself wearing this suit and walking at a high-end place or probably just drinking coffee there.
Men and women who are actually interested in having one of these suits all you need to do is visits good fashion sites who knows you might as well win a $500 worth of suits makeover.

Alert!

I know that I have not confirmed this myself if this is really true but who knows this might help. I got this anyway from a facebook friend (I mean copied from her wall).




 

When a thief forced you to take money from the ATM, do not argue or resist, you might not know what he or she might do to you. What you should do is to punch your PIN in the reverse...

Eg: If your PIN is 1234, you punch 4321.

The moment you punch in the reverse, the money will come out, but will be stuck into the machine half way out and it will alert the police without the notice of the thief.

Every ATM has it; It is specially made to signify danger and help. Not everyone is aware of this. SHARE THIS TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS
