Surprising Facts About Death On Facebook

Did you know that about 200,000 Facebook members die each year? See the picture below. According to All Facebook, putting the death rate on the social network at about half of the world average; and about 550 Facebook deaths happen daily. It seems a lot, but compared to the 700,000 daily activations Facebook receives, the ratio is a paltry one.

Chocolate Helps Lower Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is a significant concern as it significantly raises the incidence of vascular disease and stroke. As a result of stress, poor diet and lifestyle, enzymes in our body produce a substance known as angiotensin II that causes blood vessels to narrow and blood pressure to increase. Standard medical practice is to prescribe ACE inhibitors to inhibit the action of these enzymes, often with mixed results and always dangerous side effects. Researchers have now confirmed that natural flavanols found in cacao from chocolate can lower blood pressure as effectively as the Big Pharma solutions.

Natural Flavanols from Cacao Effectively Regulate Blood Pressure
Researchers have known for some time that the active catechins and procyanidines in many fruits, vegetables and green tea promote health and protect against disease through a variety of biochemical mechanisms. The results of a study published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology explains how flavanols from cacao and dark chocolate inhibit the action of angiotensin to influence the body’s fluid balance and effectively regulate blood pressure.

Study Demonstrates Blood Pressure Lowering Effect of ChocolateResearchers have known for some time that the active catechins and procyanidines in many fruits, vegetables and green tea promote health and protect against disease through a variety of biochemical mechanisms. The results of a study published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology explains how flavanols from cacao and dark chocolate inhibit the action of angiotensin to influence the body’s fluid balance and effectively regulate blood pressure.

The study involved ten men and six women aged 20 to 45 who were fed 75 grams of unsweetened chocolate with a cacao content of 72%. Blood samples were taken before and again after eating the sample chocolate to analyze the activity of the ACE enzyme. Researchers were amazed to find that the enzyme activity was reduced by 18%, effectively lowering dangerous blood pressure as well or even better than many pharmaceuticals.

The lead author concluded, “Our findings indicate that changes in lifestyle with the help of foods that contain large concentrations of catechins and procyaninides prevent cardiovascular diseases.” It`s important to note that the results were produced using unsweetened cacao as found in many specialty dark chocolates. The same benefits would not be conferred with commonly available sweetened milk chocolate and semi-sweet varieties.

Flavanols From Chocolate Increases Nitric Oxide, Relaxes Blood Vessels
Information reported in the journal BMC Medicine combines the results of 15 independent studies on the vessel dilating effects of flavanols from chocolate. Researchers found that moderate consumption of chocolate with a high percentage of cacao showed significant blood pressure reduction in people with high blood pressure, and no effect on individuals with normal pressure readings. Flavanols increase the natural formation of endothelial nitric oxide that exhibits a relaxing effect on blood vessel walls and lowered blood pressure.

Cacao from chocolate is shown to be yet another example of how a natural compound can promote health and prevent disease. Flavanols and catechins are chemical compounds found in unprocessed foods that are essential to human health. When consumed or supplemented as part of a whole food diet they demonstrate reduced risk of disease without the damaging side effects commonly seen with pharmaceuticals.

History of Mughals in Pakistan: Cast History In Pakistan

History of Mughals in Pakistan

History of Mughals in Pakistan

In Pakistan, Mughal communities are found in Sindh and Punjab provinces.

 In Punjab

The Mughal (Mistry) are considered directly descended from the Mughal dynasty that ruled India. During the fall of the Mughal empire most of the Mughals that survived were forced to flee, leaving their land and wealth behind. They escaped into the mountains of Kashmir and gradually settled in (Azaad Kashmir - Pakistan). With their love for Architecture, they took to work as builders (Mistry). Others took to metal work (Lohar) and Carpentry (Tarkhan)Tarkhan Dynasty.They are known to have replaced the tribal tradition and opted for the Indian caste system similar to tribal law. Mughals in Mirpur are skilled builders, skilled carpenters (Tarkhan)Tarkhan and skilled black smiths (Lohars)but are not confined to this. Mughals have superb artistic and creative skills and are regarded as the highest caste in the artisan classes. Their skills can be seen in the mosques and buildings that have been built by them. The region of Punjab is also home to a large number of Mughal communities. Historically, they were found in the largest numbers in and around the city of Delhi, and the Rawalpindi Division. The Mughal of the Rawalpindi Division belong to local agricultural tribes locally known by their tribal names, such as the Satti, Gheba, Phaphra and kassar tribes of the Barlas Mughals and Chughtai are also found in the Punjab  In addition to these agriculture tribes, members of the Lohar community found in the Punjab also claim Mughal ancestry.A brief description of the major tribal groupings in Punjab that claim Mughal ancestry follows.

Several tribal groupings in the Pothohar region of Punjab, Pakistan claim Mughal ancestry. One such tribe are the Phaphra. They occupy a compact area of about 25 square miles (65 km2) at the foot of the Salt Range, east of Pind Dadan Khan in Jhelum District in Pakistan.

The tribe claims to be Mughals, but British ethnographers writing at the beginning of the 20th century expressed doubts.  According to their tradition, the tribe came from the direction of Faridkot in Punjab, and settled in the district as traders and agriculturists. The tribe claims descent from a Phaphra who settled in the district in the 15th century.


The Gheba are another tribe from the Pothohar region, being one of the principal tribes of the Attock District. They are found mainly in Fateh Jang Tehsil of Attock and claim descent from Gheba khan, who was said to be a Barlas Mughal.


The Khamb is another tribe claiming to be Mughal, and found mainly in the Pothohar region of northern Punjab. According to their traditions, the ancestors of the Khamb arrived from Kathiawar, in what is now the modern state of Gujerat in India.

The Khamb were settled in their present abode by a Hashmat Khan, a chief of the Thathal tribe, who are natives of the Pothohar region. This Hashmat Khan was appointed as a garrison commander of Khambhat in Kathiawar by the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb. When Hashmat returned to the Pothohar region of Pakistan, he was accompanied by members of the garrison at Khambait. These troops were of a mixed origin and included troopers of Mongol and Afghan origin from Badakshan. He ordered that a village be built and named it Khanpur, and the Khamb tribe was granted land in and around the new town.

The Khamb, being of at least partly Turkic extraction are now considered to be a clan of the Mughal tribe. Local tradition makes the Moghul tribe to be called Barlas. At present they live in Khambi Kaleechpur and Khanpur in the Gujrat district of Punjab.


The Kassar are a Mughal tribe and one of the three major land-owning tribes in the Dhani country of Chakwal District in Punjab province, Pakistan. They occupy the northern part of Dhani, called Babial and Chaupeda. According to the Jhelum District settlement report of 1862, they are mentioned as having come from Jammu along with the Mair-Minhas tribe and been settled in this area by the Mughal Emperor, Zaheerudin Babur. According to their traditions, they claim descent from a kinsmen of the Emperor Babur, Kassar. He was said to be a distant cousin of Babur. In addition to Chakwal, they are also found in Sargodha, Jhelum, Attock, Khoshab, Rawalpindi, Tehsil Sohawa, Badin (Sindh), Larkana (Sindh), Muzafar Abad (Kashmir), Ponch (Kashmir), Cakothi(Kashmir).


The Jandran are a tribe of Mughal status, found mainly Jhang, Khanewal, Vehari, Lodhran and Sargodha districts of Punjab.
 Turk Mughal

In Punjab, the term Turk refers to any inhabitant of Central Asia, or Turkestan, as the region was historically known. The Turks of the Punjab region include the Karlugh Turks of the Hazara Division, who were settled in the region by Timur. These Karlugh Turks resumed the title of "Raja" by which locals used to call them during their rule of Pakhli state, while some Turk clans use "Usmani" as their surname, probably due to their Turkish origin. In addition to these Turks, there was also a colony of Turks settled in Gurdaspur District who were once said to be ropemakers. They claim descent from Turk soldiers settled in Gurdaspur District by the Khilji sultans. These Turks are now settled in and around the city of Faisalabad.

 In Sindh

In Sindh, two Mughal dynasties, the Arghun and Tarkhan, held power for a short periods in the 16th Century. Most of the Sindhi Mughals are descended from Central Asian immigrants who settled in the province during the rule of these two dynasties, these two dynasties were later subdued by Babur. Many Sindhi Mughal's also claim to have arrived in the region during the rebellion of Sher Shah Suri against the Mughal heir-apparent Humayun, in fact many Mughal's settled in Umarkot, and young Akbar was born there. in Sindh the Mughals ruled with the assistance of the Kalhora tribe. Among the famous Mughal administrators of Sindh was Mirza Ghazi Beg, during his rule many Sindhi's entered the service of the Mughal Emperors.

A small number of Qazilbash tribesmen settled in Sindh in the 18th Century. A small number of Mughal families are descended from Georgian immigrants, such as the family of Mirza Qilich Beg, the famous Sindhi, who came to during the invasion of Nadir Shah and flourished during the rule of Talpurs. The Sindh Mughals are Sunni, and now entirely speak Sindhi.  Manzoor Mughal (D.I.G)Deputy inspector general of police investigations Karachi.Now present Director Intelligence Karachi.Ghulam Nabi Mughal,an eminent writer of sindhi language and retired Regional Director Food Deppt.(Govt.Sindh) ,belongs to Hyderabad since 1915-20.His family lineage revealed that they were first came into Nasrpur(Sindh,period approximately in the end of 17th century) from the region of kashmir.

The New 13th Zodiac Sign in Horoscope from 2011 : Ophiuchus

13th Zodiac Sign : Ophiuchus
The recent media hype about Ophiuchus (pronounced Oh-fee-YOU-cuss), "the new 13th zodiac sign," has sent folks spinning into an astrological identity crisis -- as well as overloading our own DH web servers. But the whole thing is not even true!

"Ophiuchus has nothing to do with Astrology," said expert astrologer Rick Levine. "It's not an Astrology issue. It has to do with the stars -- it's not a sign, it's a constellation."

"There are four seasons each with a beginning, middle and end," Levine continued. "That makes 12 zodiac signs, and there's no such thing as a 13th astrological sign."
So why are people freaking out, wondering if they went to bed last night a Gemini and woke up a Taurus? Here are the answers you've been waiting for on this cosmic controversy:

What is Ophiuchus?
Ophiuchus is a large modern constellation commonly represented as a man grasping the snake represented by the constellation Serpens.

Is Ophiuchus the 13th sign?
No. It's just a constellation. Even the founding text for Astrology (Tetrabiblos by Claudius Ptolemy written 170 AD) only mentions 12 signs. A few astrologers who practice the controversial sidereal  (constellation-based) zodiac use it as the 13th zodiac sign -- and by a few we mean about 1 percent.

How did this whole myth get started?
It began when astronomy professor Parke Kunkle of Minneapolis Community and Technical College told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune about the precession of stars over time. He said "Two thousand years ago the Sun was 'in' whatever it was in. Now it's about a whole constellation off from that." Kunkle's quote went viral and was picked up by FOX News and other media outlets because people mistakenly assume that Astrology is based on constellations. But that's not true.

So what is the truth?
Astrology is based on the four seasons, not on constellations -- and the seasons don't change. As Levine said above, there are four seasons, each with a beginning, middle and end, which adds up to 12 zodiac signs. There is no 13th astrological sign. Period.

What does this mean for you?
Nothing! Your zodiac sign hasn't changed. If you were a Gemini yesterday, you're still a Gemini today -- don't worry, you'll never wake up a Taurus. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

What can we learn from this?
Listen to the experts, and don't believe everything you read until you check your facts. There are a lot of people out there who think they understand Astrology when they really don't. works only with authentic astrologers and we'll be sure to keep you informed of the truth.

World's Most Dangerous Bird

World's Most Dangerous Bird

According to the Guinness Book of Records, the Cassowaries are the world’s most dangerous birds, capable of dealing fatal blows. They are very unpredictable, aggressive creatures, especially if wounded or cornered. The Cassowary lives in the rain forests of Australia and New Guinea and are actually pretty shy animals if undisturbed, but if you get to close and it thinks you’re a threat you could receive a bone-breaking kick or get sliced by its dagger-like sharp claws. During WWII, soldiers stationed in New Guinea were warned to stay away from these birds, but some of them still became victims.

Revolution in Tunisia

Tunisia swore in a new interim president yesterday while struggling to contain looting, deadly prison riots and chaos in the streets.

The unrest came after President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali was swept from power on Friday following a month of street protests over corruption, a lack of jobs and clampdowns on civil liberties.

As many as 50 people were reported to have been killed in a prison fire in the Mediterranean coastal resort of Monastir. Yesterday, British holidaymakers, including many Scots, were flown back to the UK from the resort. In the wake of Ben Ali’s departure for exile in Saudi Arabia, the country’s leadership changes came rapidly. While initially his long-time ally Prime Minister Mohammed Ghannouchi took up power, yesterday Constitutional Council President Fethi Abdennadher declared the president’s departure permanent and the speaker of parliament, Fouad Mebazza, was sworn in as interim president.

He in turn ordered the formation of a coalition government and the constitutional authorities said a presidential election should be held within 60 days. While the moves were aimed at reconciliation, it was not clear how far the 77-year-old Mebazaa, who has been part of Tunisia’s ruling class for decades, would go to invite the opposition into the government. Unclear too was just who would emerge as the top political leaders in a post-Ben Ali Tunisia.

For 23 years the autocratic leader has utterly dominated politics, placing his allies in power and sending opponents to jail or into exile. The latest riots started after an educated but jobless 26-year-old committed suicide in mid-December when police confiscated the fruit and vegetables he was selling without a permit. His desperate act hit a nerve, sparked copycat suicides, and focused generalised anger against the regime into a widespread revolt.

Yesterday, the mood on the streets of the capital, Tunis, and in other cities was at times ugly and violent. In Tunis, soldiers traded fire with unidentified attackers in front of the Interior Ministry, while looters emptied shops and torched the capital’s main railway station. Eye-witnesses said black smoke billowed over a giant supermarket as looters torched and emptied it.

There were also drive-by shootings. “It is certain the presidential police are behind all this. They still hope to regain power,” said Tunisian analyst Taoufik Ayachi.

Public television station TV7 broadcast phone calls from residents of working-class neighbourhoods on the capital’s outskirts, describing attacks against their homes by knife-wielding assailants.

“This isn’t good at all. I’m very afraid for the kids and myself,” said Lilia Ben Romdhan, a mother of three in outer Tunis. “If (he) had stayed in the country it would be better.”

Kamel Fdela, selling oranges and bananas in the neighbourhood, said he wanted democracy but was not sure that would happen. He also feared food shortages, with so many stores closed and others looted.

“God willing, a real man will take over,” he said. While Tunisian airspace did reopen yesterday, some flights were cancelled and others left after delays.

Thousands of tourists were still being evacuated from the Mediterranean nation known for its sandy beaches, desert landscapes and ancient ruins. Last night British Foreign Secretary William Hague appealed for a rapid return to law and order, adding that the Foreign and Commonwealth office was continuing to advise British people to avoid all but essential travel to Tunisia.

President Barack Obama said he applauded the courage and dignity of protesting Tunisians, and urged all parties to keep calm and avoid violence.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who refused permission for Ben Ali to enter France, called for free elections as soon as possible and said it had taken steps to block suspicious movements of Tunisian assets in France.

Elsewhere Saudi King Abdullah’s spokesman confirmed yesterday that ousted Ben Ali and some family members had landed in Saudi Arabia, saying the kingdom welcomed him with a wish for “peace and security to return to the people of Tunisia.” He did not give Ben Ali’s exact whereabouts, but a source inside the kingdom said he was in the small city of Abha, about 310 miles south of Jeddah.

Ben Ali’s fall and escape into exile are now being seen as an epoch-changing political earthquake by many in the capitals of Europe, from where Tunisia was lauded as the most European country of North Africa, with a large middle class, a free market economy, broad gender equality and welcoming Mediterranean beaches.

Despite being one of the most repressive governments in a region characterised by police states, United States leaders gave it high marks for its aggressive prosecution of terrorist suspects. But under sweeping anti-terrorism laws, there were thousands of arbitrary arrests and innumerable cases of torture.

Ben Ali’s departure is seen by many poltical analysts as having the potential to embolden Arab opposition movements and ordinary people to challenge entrenched governments across the Middle East.

“It’s a creeping realisation that more and more people are being marginalised and pauperised and that, increasingly, life is more difficult,” said Rami Khouri, director of an Arab affairs institute at the American University of Beirut. “You need little events that capture the spirit of the time. Tunisia best captures that in the Arab world.”

Hours after Ben Ali fled, a Lebanese broadcaster, in triumphant tones, ended her report on the first instance of an Arab leader being overthrown in popular protests by quoting a famous Tunisian poet. “And the people wanted life,” she said, “and the chains were broken.” The broadcaster, Abeer Madi al-Halabi, said the seismic events in Tunisia would serve as “a lesson for countries where presidents and kings have rusted on their thrones.”

Some regional observers point out that the near-silence of Arab leaders in countries like Algeria, Egypt and Sudan speaks volumes about what they think of Tunisia’s revolt.

In contrast many young people throughout the Arab world are reported to be relaying Tunisia’s developments to each other through Facebook, Twitter, and other online social networks.

One blogger in Bahrain, Mohammed al-Maskati, twittered: “It actually happened in my lifetime! An Arab nation woke up and said enough.”

Intelligence and diplomatic analysts say that inside Tunisia for now much depends on who can show they have the greater momentum behind them, the looters and violent gangs or the authorities. It would be naive, they point out, to expect that even with Ben Ali gone his inner circle will simply throw in the towel, being too entrenched, and with so much to lose.

Some have even suggested that Ben Ali loyalists are sowing chaos to try to seize back power.

Only the coming hours and days will determine whether such an assessment proves to be the case.

Tourists come home

‘There were fires in the street, shop fronts had been smashed, debris everywhere’

By Alison Campsie

It was a simple quest for winter sun that left scores of Scots trapped in their blacked-out hotels with the surrounding picture postcard landscape trashed by gunfights and street fires.

More than 230 holidaymakers touched down at Glasgow Airport last night at 7pm from the resort of Monastir after being brought home from Tunisia by their tour operators. Most had been told around 6am yesterday their holidays were coming to an early end as security deteriorated sharply.

Some holidaymakers spent almost four hours stuck on a plane on the tarmac at Monastir airport as holiday firms gathered as many of their customers as they could.

Peter Munro, 50, was in Tunisia celebrating his birthday with his wife Linda when the unrest broke out. “We won’t forget this in a hurry. We were there less than a week and have spent the last couple of days confined to our hotel. On the way to the airport we could see a petrol station destroyed and there were armed guards with bayonets. It’s not the kind of holiday you want.”

Mrs Munro, a nursery teacher, said: “I wouldn’t say it was scary because we knew we were getting home. I felt worse for the people who live there. Staff at the hotel were crying – they know that Tunisia is finished.

“Other guests in the hotel were angry. They had long holidays cut short but we are glad to be home. Our daughters have been phoning us, worried. I think it has been worse for them.”

Hugh Dorby, 54, and his wife Elizabeth, 51, of Kilmarnock, had already been in Tunisia too long after Mrs Dorby took seriously ill and was kept in hospital for a week. As the couple waited to leave this morning, a week behind schedule, Mr Dorby walked through the streets of a resort just south of Monastir.

He said: “There were fires in the street, shop fronts had been smashed, debris everywhere. Not the kind of things you want to see on holiday. In the town where we were staying, a 25-year-old man was shot dead. That tells you what it has been like out there.”

Anne McRitchie, from Wemyss in Fife, said she had been confined to her hotel for the past two days but that the impact of the riots became clearer on the drive to the airport when she saw burnt out cars and armed guards patrolling the road.

“I was glad to get out in the end. I haven’t slept for two days. The Tunisians I have spoken to have been in floods of tears. They are devastated at what has happened to their country.”

Margaret Cox, 67, and her husband William, 70, from Ibrox, Glasgow, were two weeks into their seven-week winter break when they were told to leave by their tour operator.

Mrs Cox said: “Our hotel was surrounded by a big rally and we were told this morning that we would have to leave. We’re miserable coming back, we have lost five weeks of our holiday.”

Margaret and James Brown of Robroyston, Glasgow, knew that something was wrong when they sat on a coach for six hours on a day trip to the Sahara, only to be told that the tour was cancelled.

Mr Brown said: “That was on Wednesday and things just got worse from there. That night we were confined to our hotel in Sousse. We never left our hotel after that and on Thursday you could hear gun fire through the night and could smell the smoke.

“Our whole hotel lost power last night, it was surrounded by fire engines and police. We ended up sitting in the lobby with candles that were handed out to guests.”

The Browns left their hotel in a convoy of three coaches but ended up sitting on a plane at the airport for more than four hours.

Mrs Brown said: “We are back safe in Glasgow and that is the main thing. I will be so pleased just to get home. We are just exhausted from it all.”

Seven flights in total brought holidaymakers with Thomson and First Choice back to the UK. The last of their 1400 customers were due home at East Midlands airport last night. Thomas Cook have repatriated 1800 tourists in total.

Qureshi Family History : Cast History In Pakistan


Qureshi Family History : Cast History In Pakistan

Quraishi (also rendered as Qureshi, Qoraishi, Koraishi, Kureshy or Kureishi), (Arabic: قریشی‎) is a family name that originates from Arabs in Saudi Arabia, particularly from the city of Mecca.


According to traditional legends, Arab lineages allegedly originate from three groups:

* Perished Arabs (العرب البائدة): These are the ancients of whose history little is known. They include ‘Ad, Thamûd, Tasam, Jadis, Imlaq and others.

* Pure Arabs (العرب العاربة): They allegedly originated from the progeny of Ya‘rub bin Yashjub bin Qahtan bin Hud so were also called Qahtanian Arabs.

* Arabized Arabs (العرب المستعربة): They allegedly originated from the progeny of Ishmael and were also called ‘Adnanian Arabs. The Quraish are a branch of the "Arabized Arabs".

The Quraish was a branch of the Kinana, which descended from Elias bin Mudar, who descended from Adnan. After the introduction of Islam, the Quraish gained supremacy and produced the three dynasties of the Ummayads, Abbasids and Fatimides, which ruled as Caliphs.

The majority of the Quraish tribe belong to the Sunni branch of Islam

Quraishis in South Asia

The Quraish family diaspora is spread all around the world. Due to Arab imperialism into foreign lands, the Quraish family was able to establish itself in these lands. The Quraish family exists in many parts of South Asia, particularely in Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. The descendants of Arabs who arrived with Muhammad Bin Qasim settled in South Asia.
A Ph,D thesis in this context is very imporatant reference to read from USA on the subject matter The central Asian Arabs of Afghanistan: pastoral nomadism in transition By Thomas Jefferson Barfield.
