The computer has today become an integral part of our personal and professional lives.
One of the most important uses to which a computer is put is to store information. The
information could be images, personal details, address books, bank statements,
project reports etc. It is quite common for computer users to keep backup copies of
hard disk information on CD disks and other medium. Such backup information can be accessed
if the main files on the computer hard disk are lost or corrupted for some reason.
The CD can hold large volumes of data and is also quite cheap, this makes it the ideal medium
to keep archive files and backup data. But what happens when you want to discard one of these

When discussing child safety in a car, most of us think of investing in safety
seats for children and remembering to lock the safety belt for the child. There is however,
a real danger that we do not pay much attention to. This is because we
are very sure that we will never forget our child in the car. And yet, you hear of cases
where parents and elders have left children to suffocate and die a painful death in cars.
Children are left alone in cars for two reasons, in the first case parents claim to have
forgotten that the child was in the car. In the second case, the child is left alone and
unattended in the car intentionally. The parent hopes to run a quick errand and get back
to the car, the child is locked in the car and is expected to wait for the parents to get
back. Legal experts spend a lot of time looking for the possibility of taking legal action
against parents or elders who, cause grave accidents to children left in cars.
The truth is that people who are the root cause of such injury and death to a child are
normal people, they are not very old, they are not sick and they need not be mentally
stressed. In this report we have tried to understand the mind of such people and the reasons
why children get left in cars. We also provide some useful suggestions to ensure that
you do not leave your child alone in the car intentionally or unintentionally.

Despite the widespread popularity of rice, not much health related information regarding rice
is available. This is particularly true of brown rice which is known to have better nutritional
value as compared to white rice. It is quite surprising that many people consider brown rice
to be something that is consumed by poor people! So what is brown rice and how is it different
from white rice? From the technical point of view there is a very small difference between
white and brown rice as, brown rice is unpolished or sometimes partially polished rice.
White rice on the other hand is completely polished rice and the polishing process removes
the entire brown (bran) layer on top of the seed.
Brown rice is rich in fiber and this is the main reason why it is known to help control
cholestrol and even blood pressure. It is often thought that cooking brown rice is a very
cumbersome process and this puts many people off. We have compiled what is most likely the
most comprehensive report on brown rice and clearly explained the health benefits of brown
rice. The health information on brown rice provided in this report, is not expected to
replace any professional medical advice that you might get. On the other hand we would like
you to become aware of the benefits of eating unpolished (brown rice) and understand how
it can be beneficial to you.
