The nobel committeYoichiro Nambu, a Tokyo-born American citizen, and Makoto Kobayashi and Toshihide Maskawa of Japan for their work. Japanese scientists win Physics Nobel 2008 Two Japanese scientists and a Tokyo-born American shared the 2008 Nobel Prize for physics for discoveries in sub-atomic particles.The Nobel committee lauded Yoichiro Nambu, a Tokyo-born American citizen, and Makoto Kobayashi and Toshihide Maskawa of Japan for separate work that helped explain why the universe is made up mostly of matter and not anti-matter via processes known as broken symmetries. It helps underlie the Standard Model of physics, which unites three of the four fundamental forces of nature: strong, weak and electromagnetic, leaving out gravity. Physicists are now searching for the spontaneous broken symmetry, the Higgs mechanism, at the world's most powerful particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider at the European Organization for Nuclear Research or CERN in Switzerland. They helped figure out the existence and behavior of the very tiniest particles known as quarks. Nambu shared half of the prestigious 10 million Swedish crown ($1.4 million) prize with Kobayashi of Japan's High Energy Accelerator Research Organization and Maskawa of Kyoto University. High Energy Accelerator Research Organization, Kyoto University, Swedish crown, Instablogs, Sweden Arab Christian population of East Jerusalem is steadily migrating to the west and the other European countries. Rising Islamic fundamentalism combined with deep political and economic instability are the primary factors pushing migration. Arab Christians migrate from East Jerusalem The Arab Christian population of east Jerusalem is steadily migrating to the west and other European countries. Political and economic instability in the region is encouraging them to travel abroad and make a new life. The rise of Islamic fundamentalism in the region is the primary factor pushing migration. Hamas, Islamic jihad and other radical Islamic groups refuse to accept anyone else other than the Moslem population. Arab Christian population feels insecure surrounded by Muslims in Jerusalem where neighborhoods around the churches lie empty. Israelis must understand that Arab Christians are just as important as native Israelis and not to be thrown aside. The entire world must realize that when Moslems talk about waging a jihad against Israel they are also referring to the Arab Christian population. This is only a small example of a much greater problem, between Islamic fundamentalists and Jews and Christians. Religious minorities within China are being denied their basic right to worship. The 8 to 12 million strong Roman Catholics face repression for their loyalty to the Vatican, which the Chinese government claims interferes in the country's internal affairs. Chinese Christians denied right to worship The Chinese government continues to restrict religious practices of several communities within China. Christians continued to struggle to freely worship in China. Its 8 to 12 million Catholics are split between officially approved Church and the underground one loyal to the Pope. Underground Roman Catholic clergy faces repression for their loyalty to the Vatican, which the Chinese government claims interferes in the country's internal affairs. Some unregistered Protestant churches reported intensified harassment from government authorities leading up to the 2008 Summer Olympic Games. In June, several prominent religious activists and leaders, including attorneys, were placed under surveillance, restricted to their homes, or forced to leave Beijing during the visit of a delegation of foreign officials. The Chinese government must allow the basic right of worship to its people. Navratri celebrations have reached its peak in India. The festival of nights is devoted to worshipping different forms of durga amidst feasting and fasting that have taken precedence over all normal daily activities amongst the Hindus. Religious dances are also held to appease and seek the blessing of the goddess. India rejoices with Navaratri celebrations Navaratri festival is the time when entire country is tinged in colors of celebrations, enthusiasm and devotion. The name 'Navaratri' in Sanskrit means nine nights. The nine days of festivities are the symbol of victory and triumph of good over evil. Legend has it that for nine days, Goddess Durga fought with demon forces of Mahishasura. And on the tenth day, she defeated him. The tenth day is therefore known as 'Vijaydashami' and 'Dussehra'. During the festival people worship three divine goddesses, Durga (Goddess of Power), Lakshmi (Goddess of Wealth), and Saraswati (Goddess of Knowledge). This is the most awaited period by millions of Hindus in the country. In fact, the festive mood engulfs one and all, irrespective of their religion and beliefs. If West Bengal is famous for the Durga Puja celebrations, Gujarat is renowned for its Garba and Dandiya-ras Dance. The dances are performed throughout the nine days of Navaratri. During these nine days, the levels of excitement and energy are touching the skies. *******www.instablogs****/

The Olympic Games is an international multi-sport event established for both summer and winter games. There have been two generations of the Olympic Games; the first were the Ancient Olympic Games (Greek: Ολυμπιακοί Αγώνες; [Olympiakoi Agones] (help·info)) held at Olympia, Greece. The second, known as the Modern Olympic Movement, were first held in 1896, in Athens, Greece. The modern Olympics feature the Summer Games and Winter Games. The Paralympic and Youth Olympic Games are variations on the Modern Olympic Movement. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) was founded in 1894 on the initiative of a French nobleman, Pierre Frédy, Baron de Coubertin. His vision was to bring together amateur athletes from around the world to compete in a variety of events. The IOC has become the governing body of the "Olympic Movement," a conglomeration of sporting federations that are responsible for the organization of the Games. The evolution of the Olympic Movement has forced the IOC to change Coubertin's timehonored ideals. The original vision of the pure amateur athlete had to change under the pressure of corporate sponsorships and political regimes intent on the creation of sports "dynasties". Participation in the Games has increased to the point that nearly every nation on earth is represented. This growth has created numerous challenges; including political boycotts, the use of performance enhancing drugs, bribery of officials, and terrorism. While the Olympic Movement is forced to address issues never before conceived by Coubertin, the Olympics continue to grow in the face of these challenges. The Games encompass many rituals and symbols that were established during their infancy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Most of these traditions are displayed in the opening and closing ceremonies, and the medal presentations. Despite the complexity of the current modern Games, the focus remains on the Olympic motto: Citius Altius Fortius - Faster, Higher, Stronger.There are many myths surrounding the origin of the ancient Olympic Games; the most popular of which identifies Heracles and his father Zeus as the progenitors of the Games. According to the legend, Zeus held sporting events in honor of his defeat of Cronus, and succession to the throne of heaven. Heracles, being his eldest son, defeated his brothers in a running race and was crowned with a wreath of wild olive branches. It is Heracles who first called the games Olympic, and established the custom of holding them every 4 years.[1] The legend diverges at this point. One popular story claims that after Heracles completed his 12 labors, he went on to build the Olympic stadium and surrounding buildings as an honor to Zeus. After the stadium was complete, he walked in a straight line for 200 strides and called this distance a "stadion" (Greek: στάδιον, Latin: stadium, "stage"), which later also became a unit of distance. Another myth associates the first Games with the ancient Greek concept of Olympic truce (ἐκεχειρία, ekecheiria). The most widely held estimate for the inception of the Ancient Olympics is 776 BC.[2] From then on, the Olympic Games quickly became very important throughout ancient Greece. They reached their zenith in the 6th and 5th centuries BC. The Olympics were of fundamental religious importance. They featured sport events and ritual sacrifices honoring both Zeus (whose colossal statue stood at Olympia), and Pelops, divine hero and mythical king of Olympia. Pelops was famous for his legendary chariot races with King Oenomaus of Pisatis.[3] The number of events increased to twenty and the celebration spanned several days. Winners of the events were admired and immortalized in poems and statues.[4] The Games were held every four years, known as an Olympiad. The Greeks used Olympiads as one of their units of time measurement. Gradually the Games declined in importance as the Romans gained power in Greece. In 393 AD Emperor Theodosius I proclaimed Christianity the religion of the Empire. He banned the Olympic Games, which were seen as a pagan festival. [5] The Olympics were not seen again until their rebirth 1,500 years later.Currently, the Olympic program consists of 35 sports, 53 disciplines and more than 400 events. The Summer Olympic program includes 28 sports with 38 disciplines, and the Winter Olympic program is comprised of 7 sports with 15 disciplines.[60] There were 9 sports on the original Olympic program in 1896: athletics, cycling, fencing, gymnastics, weightlifting, shooting, swimming, tennis, and wrestling. If the 1896 rowing events had not been cancelled due to bad weather, they would have been included in this list as well.cross country skiing, figure skating, ice hockey, Nordic combined, ski jumping, and speed skating

Flag bearers from each participating country enter the stadium in single file, behind them march all of the athletes without any distinction or grouping by nationality a tradition that began during the 1956 Summer Olympics at the suggestion of Melbourne schoolboy John Ian Wing, who thought it would be a way of bringing the athletes of the world together as "one nation."Currently, the Olympic program consists of 35 sports, 53 disciplines and more than 400 events.
