Quite simply the most amazing golf hole on the planet

1. The brand-new golf course at the Legends Golf & Safari Resort in South Africa is an amazing stretch of 18 holes designed by 18 different top-flight golfers, including Padraig Harrington, Colin Montgomerie, K.J. Choi, Retief Goosen, Justin Rose, Trevor Immelman and Vijay Singh.

2. The course's so-called "Xtreme 19th" hole is a par 3 -- a par 3 whose tee is atop a cliff on Hanglip Mountain, more than 1,400 feet above a green carved like the continent of Africa. You've got to take a helicopter to get to the tee box, and from there it's more than 630 yards to the pin. Once you tee off, it takes nearly 30 seconds for the ball to hit the ground.

3. Should you manage to drill a hole-in-one on the 19th, congratulations!! you've just won yourself a million bucks, and the right to call yourself the most Xtreme golfer on Earth! And for tournaments held at the Legends, it will serve as the playoff hole. Playing all 19 holes runs about 2,000 South African rand, or about $220 in American bills, but for that you get the helicopter ride, plus a bunch of souvenir swag and a DVD of your shot.

4. Man, you'd need a shovel to repair the ball marks left if you hit the green from that high up. It'd be like a grenade! Plus, you'd better make darn sure the group ahead of you has cleared the green. I don't think yelling "fore" would be enough to prepare somebody for a golf ball dropping from a quarter-mile up.

Contact Lense User. BE CAREFUL !!

1. AMO Complete® MoisturePlus™ Contact Lens Solution Linked to Microbial Keratitis.

2. New Eye Infection, AMO Recall its Complete MoisturePlus Contact Lens Solution a Dangerous Contact Lens Solution Linked to Acanthamoeba Kera titis & Microbial Keratitis in Addition to Fungal Keratitis.

3. Have your eyes been, once again, placed in danger of Bacterial Eye Infections, vision damage, or loss of sight?

4. On May 25, AMO (Advanced Medical Optics) announced a recall of their 'No Rub' Complete MoisturePlus Multipurpose Contact Solution.

5. Although the company stands by its product and casts the blame on contact lens wearers who 'improperly store, disinfect or handle' their contact lenses, the CDC forced AMO to recall Complete Moisture Plus.

6. Other reports seem to illustrate a company who knew about the potential link between (AK) and their Complete MoisturePlus Multipurpose Solution since as early as 2004.

7. In 2004, the infection first occurred in more than a dozen people against the normal count of one or two in a year. Dr. Elmer Tu, an ophthalmologist at the University of Illinois, Chicago, along with other doctors attended around 35 patients from May 2003 to September of 2006, 55% of whom were infected due to usage of AMO Complete MoisturePlus recall solution.

8. According to Dr. Tu, AMO's Complete MoisturePLUS solution is not defective. It is just not designed to provide a shield to the eyes when they're exposed to soil or water where the risk of bacterial infection is significant. Julie Zawisza, an FDA spokes person, said,' The solution is not marketed to protect against the amoeba. But it's supposed to be free of any type of microorganisms. It's not supposed to result in anyone getting an infection.'

9. Once again, one must wonder what corporations who suspect problems with their products are thinking when they wait one, two, or more years before warning the public about a potential hazard provoked or caused by their product. We wonder how much injury must occur bef ore corporate dollars are sufficient.

10. Acanthamoeba keratitis & Microbial Keratitis patients suffer symptoms very similar to other common bacterial eye infection, but the AK infection can result in the loss of eye sight. If you experience symptoms, including the following, we encourage you to first immediately seek treatment from an experienced, eye care professional:

a. Eye pain
b. Eye redness and soreness
c. Hypersensitivity to light
d. Reduction in visual acuity
e. Temporary or, at the worst, permanent blindness

11. This Complete Moisture Plus recall is not so distant from Bausch & Lomb's recall of ReNu with MoistureLoc, which caused serious injury to many contact lens wearers. AMO's press release states they have known since January of 2005 about at least 46 patients who claimed to have contracted a unique form of keratitis from the AMO Recall solution.

12. This keratitis is called 'acanthamoeba keratitis (AK)'. From all indications, AMO Moisture Plus recall was delayed as long as Bausch did in coming forward and recalling the product, potentially exposing an untold number of unsuspecting contact lens wearers to this painful (AK) infection that can cause permanent vision loss or blindness.

1. For those who sleep in the air-cond room. There was a story of a friend of mine has passed away recently. Heard of a bad news regarding Charleine, who studied in MSMKL with some of us. She passed away last weekend due to carbon monoxide poisoning.

2. It happened when she lighted an aromatheraputic candle for the night in a room with air-conditioning on and all windows closed.

3. Due to lack of oxygen in the room, the burning of the candle cannot fully oxidized & thus forming dangerous carbon monoxide.

4. Carbon monoxide will prevent oxygen exchange in the lungs, resulting the person dozing off to state of unconsciousness & eventually death in less than 1 hour, depending on the room size. I am sending this e-mail out to all of you so that you will be aware of such danger when lighting aromatheraputic candles in any unventilated rooms.

7 Foods U Should NEVER Eat!....con't....


a. Sure they are convenient and e as y, but boy are they unhealthy! These kid-marketed lunches are loaded with saturated fat and sodium. They usually contain highly processed meats and cheeses, white flour crackers and sugary treats. Lunchables get two-thirds of their calories from fat and sugar. And they provide lopsided nutrition since they contain no fruits or vegetables.

b. 'They insidiously promote obesity by making kids think that lunch normally comes in a cellophane-wrapped box,' Susan says. 'Parents are promoting their children's obesity by buying these items. They're expensive, too. Pack a sandwich and save dollars and health.'


a. Not all cereals are created equally. And while your kids might beg for the latest cookie or marshmallow chocolate surprise cereals, it is a safe bet they are about as healthy as a dessert. Keywords to look out for are puffed, dyed and sweetened.

b. Most kids' cereals are so highly processed they no longer look like the grains they were originally made from. A healthy alternative is oatmeal. Although, if you are buying pre-packaged oatmeal make sure to check the l abe l and see how much sugar it contains, you might be surprised.

c. 'A little sugar isn't a problem but when the first ingredient on the box is sugar, then watch out,' she said. 'There is no fruit in Froot Loops. But the unsweetened original Cheerios or Rice Krispies are fine, and you can sweeten them naturally with blueberries and strawberries.'


a. What falls under the category of processed meats? Hot dogs, sausage, jerky, bacon, certain lunch meats and meats used in canned soup products. Almost all processed meats have sodium nitrite a dd ed as a preservative.

b. A recent study conducted at the University of Hawaii found that sodium nitrite can act as 'a precursor to highly carcinogenic nitrosamines -- potent cancer-causing chem! icals th a t accelerate the formation and growth of cancer cells throughout the body.' So eliminate these meats from your diet before they eliminate you!


a. Sometimes regarded as a healthy food, soups can be very deceiving. You must stay on your guard because many canned soups have high levels of trans fats, sodium and artificial preservatives such as MSG. Just one serving (which is roughly one cup) can have almost 1,000 milligrams of salt. Also, steer clear of soups that are cream-b as ed, they can be high in calories and fat.

b. Susan says it is important to 'read l abe ls from back to front. Ignore the health claims, and instead focus on the ingredients and serving size. Watch out for hydrogenated fat (trans fat) and sodium. If you're buying bread to go with you soup, the first ingredient should be whole grain -- either whole wheat, rye or other grain. If it just says 'wheat bread,' that doesn't mean whole wheat.'

c. We all want our family to be healthy and happy, so steer clear of these foods. Think it's difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle? Think again!

7 Foods U Should NEVER Eat!


a. It's hard to resist the smell of a Krispy Kreme doughnut, which is why I never step foot in the store. Doughnuts are fried chock-full of sugar and white flour and loads of trans fat.

b. According to the Krispy Kreme website, an average 3.5 ounce sugar doughnut weighs in with about 400 calories and contains few other nutrients besides fat. These sugary treats may satisfy your craving but it won't satisfy your hunger as most of the calories come from fat.

c. 'Eating a lot of refined sugar contributes to blood sugar 'swings' or extreme fluctuations,' eDiets Chief Nutritionist Susan Burke said.


a. The age-old clas sic may be delicious but think twice before sinking your teeth into that Big Mac. The saturated fat found in cheese burgers h as been linked to heart attacks, strokes and some types of cancer.

b. 'In fact, fast-food portions are gargantuan, almost double the calories per meal compared to 20 years ago,' Susan says. 'Twenty years ago the average fast-food cheeseburger had about 300 calories. Today's BK Whopper with cheese h as 720. To burn the excess 420 calories, you'd have to run for 40 minutes. For example, in 1985 a medium French fry had 240 calories, 2.4 ounces. Today's 'medium' is 6.9 ounces and 610 calories.

c. 'This fast-food meal of cheeseburger and fries h as way too many calories and fat grams, not to mention grams of saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol and sodium.'

d. Let's break down this meal. First, take the white-flour bun (refined carbohydrates), then a dd some processed cheese (saturated fat and trans fat, plus lots of a dd itives and preservatives) and then top off with fried red meat (cholesterol and saturated fats). And let's not forget about the condiments such as the always fattening mayonnaise.

e. Not sounding so appetizing anymore, huh? Oh, and let's not forget about the infamous side dish. You cheeseburger will most likely come with a side of French fries, which is sadly the most popular vegetable dish in the U.S. Don't kid yourself, French fries are not vegetables, they are extremely high in fat and contain a tiny amount of nutrients.


a. With the recent cl as s-action lawsuit between The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) and KFC, the health risks posed by fried foods are becoming more public. The CSPI is suing the food chain for their use of cooking oil containing unhealthy trans fats. The lawsuit seeks to order KFC to use other types of cooking oils and to inform customers how much trans fats KFC's food contains.

b. Foods cooked in highly heated oils (most notably partially hydrogenated oil) have been known to cause cancer, weight gain and other serious health risks if ingested regularly. A 10-piece chicken McNugget from McDonald's h as 420 calories, 24 grams of fat and 1120 milligrams of sodium. One Extra Crispy Chicken Bre as t from KFC h as around 420 calories and eight grams of saturated fat. So unless you want to super size yourself, it's best to make a clean break with fried foods.

Chicken Wings - Its Dangerous

1. Chicken Wings - Its Dangerous. Avoid eating chicken wings frequently - ladies, especially, a true story...! A friend of mine recently had a growth in her womb and she underwent an operation to remove the. The cyst removed was filled with a dark colored blood. She thought that she would be recovered after the surgery but! she was terribly wrong.

2. A relapse occurred just a few months later. Distressed , she rushed down to her gynecologist for a consultation. During her consultation, her doctor asked her a question that puzzled her.

3. He ask if she was a frequent consumer of chicken wings and she replied yes wondering as to how, he knew of her eating habits. You see, the truth is in this modern day and age; chickens are injected with steroids to accelerate their growth so that the needs of this society can be met. This need is none other than the need for food.

4. Chickens that are injected with steroids are usually given the shot at the neck or the wings. Therefore, it is in these places that the highest concentration of steroids exists. These steroids have terrifying effects on the body as it accelerates

5. It has an even more dangerous effect in the presence of female hormones, this leads to women being more prone to the growth of a cyst in the womb. Therefore, I advise the people out there to watch their diets and to lower their frequency of consuming chicken wings!
