However semen was not tested for any irregular changes because of the heat. However previous studies have shown if your scrotum is over heated by a certain point damage is taken on by the production of sperm.

The production of sperm can easy be interrupted by having bad health, not eating the food properly, doing much exercise and more. Today we have various types of technology that affect the production of sperm in the male fertility system. But avoiding things that are bad for your health are seen to help assist with the correct production of sperm.

I hope your laptop is at least a feet away from your lap now.

A Message from the Chaaps team

To Scientists: Find a cure for the 29 healthy men whose fertility is vulnerable who were just used for a study

Indian resource development minister Kapil Sebal, in a press meet at New Delhi, said:

“We have reached a (developmental) stage that today; the motherboard, its chip, the processing, connectivity, all of them cumulatively cost around $35, including memory, display and everything.”

The $35 electronic gadget is said to have been packed with web browsers, PDF reader, video conferencing facilities, pen office, sci-lab, media player, remote device management capability, multimedia input-output interface option, and multiple content viewer. The Linux based device will also have provisions for running on solar power besides the usual battery- operated systems. This gadget is brought out by the research teams of Indian Institute of Technology and the Indian Institute of Science.

Sibal said the Linux-based device was expected to be introduced to higher education institutions from 2011 but the aim was to drop the price further to $20 and ultimately to $10.

Who is the best CEO of them all??

[ad#nandini1]

‘Mirror Mirror on the wall…Who is the best CEO of them all?”

And instead of the reflection in the mirror, the Harvard Business Review answered “Steve Jobs”!

Steve Jobs was ousted from Apple in 1985 but the same company brought him back as their CEO a decade later. Apple was in a very bad shape when he took over but under his able leadership, Apple soon bounced back and the rest is history. In fact, sources say that Jobs’s return to Apple delivered a whopping 3188 percent industry – adjusted return!! And Apple’s market value has increased by $150 billion. No wonder he is named as the best CEO

The ranking compared 1999 CEO’s in the world who assumed office between 1995 – 2007. Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Jack Welsh & Warren Buffet were thus excluded from this ranking. The performance of the CEO’s were tracked until the end of their tenure or September 2009, whichever was later.

Yin Jong-Yong of Samsung was ranked 2nd in the list. John Chambers of CISCO(4), Jeff Bazos of Amazon(7), Margaret Whitman of EBay(8) and Eric Schmidt of Google(9) were the others who found their way into the ranking. Our very own Mukesh Ambani was ranked 5th in the list and is the only Indian in the top 50 CEO’s
