Google Translate for Animals

“Making the world’s information universally accessible is a key goal for Google. Language is one of our biggest challenges so we have targeted our efforts on removing language barriers between the species. We are excited to introduce Translate for Animals, an Android application which we hope will allow us to better understand our animal friends. We’ve always been a pet-friendly company at Google, and we hope that Translate for Animals encourages greater interaction and understanding between animal and human.”

This revolutionary technology will allow you to communicate with your pets and bridge the gap of cross-breed-communication.

Ricky Martin comes out as gay: Twitter happy he’s ‘livin’ la vida open’

Entertainment, MUSIC & VIDEO Comments Off on Ricky Martin comes out as gay: Twitter happy he’s ‘livin’ la vida open’

Ricky Martin’s confirmation via Twitter that he is “a fortunate homosexual man” has the microblogging site’s users buzzing with the news about the singer’s coming-out as gay.

After years of batting away rumours about his sexuality, the general consensus in the social networking sphere is summed up by a post from user Krissy_Recodo: “Ricky Martin has the courage to admit that he’s gay.. yeah!.. for those men hiding their true identity.. shame!!!”

“What an unnecessary fuss over Ricky Martin,” tweets an underwhelmed pforpapa. “Really why does it matter to anyone other than him?!”

“Ricky Martin is livin’ la vida open,” chips in ClaudiaOnIce about Puerto Rican Ricky, who had women swooning with his performances of Livin’ la Vida Loca at the height of his fame in the 90s.

He revealed on Twitter – in a message posted in both English and Spanish – that writing his autobiography had showed him the importance of being true to himself.

“I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time. Things that were too heavy for me to keep inside,” he explained.

Martin, who became the father of twin boys born via a surrogate mother in 2008, stayed in the closet because he thought coming out would damage his career.

KING of pop MICHAEL JACKSON died last night after a massive heart attack.

He collapsed and stopped breathing after an injection of a powerful painkiller named Demerol.

Jacko, 50, was said to be addicted to the drug – similar to morphine – and it is feared he took an overdose.

Paramedics who raced to his Los Angeles home after an emergency call found he had no pulse. And frantic attempts to revive him failed.

The Thriller star, who had been fighting skin cancer, was due to start a series of comeback concerts in London next month.

Instead, millions of shocked fans around the globe are today mourning a legend.

BB house for little monsters

big_brother_09

HERE’S the first glimpse of the new Big Brother house – and it looks like bosses were inspired by the space cadets preparing to move in.

longe
Big’s in space … all mod cons, including crates

Curved beams with fluorescent lights and futuristic wallpaper mirror designs from a 60s sci-fi movie.

But space is what’s missing this year – the producers have given the BB10 wannabes the smallest pad yet.

garden
Astro turf … shrunken lawn and smoking shack

Gone are the comfy sofas, leaving housemates just a handful of wooden crates to perch on. 

Uncomfortable 

And the smoking area – last year a sit-in giant ashtray – has been replaced with what looks like a bus shelter.

The rest of the garden has also been pruned, leaving the contestants fighting it out for the �100,000 prize little room to sunbathe or exercise.

A show insider said: “This house is going to make housemates really uncomfortable as Big Brother plays more mind games than ever.

“Not only is there less space but there’s hardly any furniture and everything is painted stark white. It’s really minimalist and modern. There’s a kind of space-age feel.”

Big Brother 10 kicks off at 9pm this Thursday on Channel 4.

New BB logo’s a real dab hand

BIG Brother has revealed its logo for this summer’s series – featuring what looks like a thumbprint.
The iconic eye gets a makeover each year and has previously featured shattered glass and stars.

It is always seen by housemates as a clue to tasks the Channel 4 show’s bosses have in store.

Ha! brilliant! Bit of an eye sore though…
I have to say 70% of contestants are crazy, but this’ll send them bonkers!!!

Norway has emerged as the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest, held in the Russian capital, Moscow.

Singer and violinist Alexander Rybak, 23, smashed the record for the most points awarded during the competition.

Iceland came second in the vote, followed by Azerbaijan which took the third place.

The UK’s Jade Ewen, singing an Andrew Lloyd Webber song, ended in fifth position – a marked improvement on last year’s finish at the foot of the table.

For the first time, voting in the final was split between televoting and panels of musical experts, which was supposed to reduce the incidence of predictable and neighbourly votes.

A total of 42 countries voted on the 25 songs, with Norway scoring a record 387 points.

Alexander Rybak, who was born in the former Soviet Union, is a well-known musician in Norway.

A classically-trained violinist and pianist, he wrote his country’s winning entry, Fairytale.

The previous biggest points haul was scored by Finland’s Lordi with Hard Rock Hallelujah in Greece in 2006.

No country suffered the indignity of receiving “nul points” this year but Finland finished in last place.

Denmark’s entry – Brinck singing Believe Again – was written by Boyzone’s Ronan Keating and was performed in the Irish singer’s style.

Germany’s act featured US cabaret artist Dita von Teese, who used to be married to rock star Marilyn Manson.

Her costume was slightly more demure than her outfit at the dress rehearsal after she was reportedly told to cover up by the European Broadcasting Union, which runs Eurovision, because it was unsuitable for a family audience.

Graham Norton was making his debut as commentator for the BBC, replacing Sir Terry Wogan, who bowed out last year.

‘Greatest talents’

Speaking in the Russian capital, Norton revealed that he had spoken to his predecessor, who commentated on every Eurovision final from 1980.

“Terry rang me to wish me good luck,” said the TV presenter. “He advised me to resist having a drink until the fifth song,” he added.

Jade Ewen was chosen to represent the UK through a TV talent contest, with the winning song written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Diane Warren.

Her fifth place was a highlight for the UK, which has had a dismal record in recent years, with 2008’s entry, Andy Abraham, finishing last with 14 points.

It was the second time in five years the UK had finished at the bottom, with Jemini’s 2003 effort famously scoring “nul points”.


Germany’s Alex Swings Oscar Sings! act was joined by burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese, who was ordered to cover up for the family audience.

The UK’s entry Jade Ewen was accompanied by Andrew Lloyd Webber, who wrote the song. She ended a dismal spell for the UK by finishing fifth.
