[PF:172750] BIZARRE DEATH STATICS

 

We all know about the major statistics -- thousands of people die from
 things like cancer, accidents, or other illnesses every day. But did you
 know that enough people die from falling out of bed or getting a snack
 out of a vending machine that these things qualify as death statistics?
 
1. Texting while driving kills 6,000 annually in the U.S. alone


 
A study by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) reports that 
a driver's risk of collision is 23 times greater when they are texting.
 
2. Hippos kill 2,900 people annually in Africa


 
Many experts believe that the Hippopotamus is the most dangerous animal
 in all of Africa. Weighing up to 8,000 pounds, a Hippo can gallop 18 mph and
 have been known to upset boats for no reason and bite the passengers with
 their huge, sharp teeth. Not only that, but Hippos are aggressive, unpredictable
 and have no fear of humans. People die most often when they get between 
a hippo and deep water or between a mother and her calf.
 
3. Autoerotic Asphyxiation Kills 600 people annually


 
Detail is censored.


 
4. Falling out of bed kills 450 people annually in the U.S.


 
According to the Center for Disease Control, falling out of bed accounts for 
1.8 million emergency room visits and over 400 thousand hospital admissions
 each year. The very young and the very old are most at risk, and with decreased
 stability as we age, people over the age of 65 tend to fare the worst when falling.
 
5. Icicles kill 100 people per year in Russia


 
Each year dozens are killed when sharp icicles fall from snowy rooftops and
 land on hapless victims on the sidewalks below.
 
6. Jellyfish kill 20-40 people per year in the Philippines alone


 
While most jellyfish are not deadly, 
some varieties can cause anaphylaxis, which can be fatal.
 
7. Dogs kill 34 people per year in the U.S.


 
There are approximately 4.7 million dog bite victims annually in the U.S. 
and 1,000 Americans are treated in emergency rooms as a result of dog bites 
every day. Most of these victims are children who were bitten in the face.
 
8. Ants kill 30 people per year


 
There are over 280 different species of ants that can kill, and the fire ant and 
Siafu ants of Africa are among the most deadly. Since they live in colonies up to
 20 million strong, once an attack begins ants can easily overpower their prey.
 Most reports of deaths are due to people falling asleep near an ant hill and 
succumbing to anaphylactic shock from countless ant bites and venom.
 
9. Vending machines kill 13 people per year


 
Each year vending machines topple over and crush about 10-13 people. 
Death by snacking!
 
10. Roller Coasters kill 4 people per year


 
Overall, the risk of injury while riding a roller coaster is very low. In the U.S. people take 
about 900 million rides per year, and only about 1 in 124,000 result in an injury.
 
However, studies show that between the years 1994-2004 there were 40 deaths from roller 
coasters total, and currently the annual death rate is about 4 per year in the U.S.A.

[PF:172749] Eisriesenwelt Caves - A World Of Ice Giants



The Eisriesenwelt (German for "World of the Ice Giants") is a natural limestone ice cave located in Werfen, Austria, about 40 km south of Salzburg. The cave is inside the Hochkogel mountain in the Tennengebirge section of the Alps. It is the largest ice cave in the world, extending more than 42km and visited by about 200,000 tourists every year.
 
 
 
The Tennengebirge mountains were formed during the late Tertiary period, during the Würm glaciation period of the Pleistocene. The mountain range, one of the massifs in the Austrian Alps, is the largest karst plateau in the Salzburger Alps, and the Eisriesenwelt is located at the rim of this plateau. Although the cave has a length of 42 km, only the first kilometer, the area that tourists are allowed to visit, is covered in ice. The rest of the cave is formed of limestone. Eisriesenwelt was formed by the Salzach river, which eroded passageways into the mountain. The ice formations in the cave were formed by thawing snow which drained into the cave and froze during winter. Since the entrance to the caves is open year-round, chilly winter winds blow into the cave and freeze the snow inside. In summer, a cold wind from inside the cave blows toward the entrance and prevents the formations from melting.
 
 

 
History — The first official discovery of Eisriesenwelt was by Anton Posselt, a natural scientist from Salzburg, in 1879, though he only explored the first two hundred meters of the cave. Before his discovery, the cave was known only to locals, who, believing that it was an entrance to Hell, refused to explore it. In 1880, Posselt published his findings in a mountaineering magazine, but the report was quickly forgotten. Alexander von Mörk, a speleologist from Salzburg, was one of the few people who remembered Posselt's discovery. He led several expeditions into the caves beginning in 1912, which were soon followed by other explorers. Von Mörk was killed in World War I in 1914, and an urn containing his ashes is inside a niche in the cave. In 1920, a cabin for the explorers, Forscherhütte, was built and the first routes up the mountain were established. Tourists began to arrive soon after, attracted by the cave's sudden popularity. Later another cabin, the Dr. Oedl House, and paths from Werfen and Tänneck were constructed. In 1955 a cable car was built, shortening the 90-minute climb to 3 minutes. Today the Eisriesenwelt cave is owned by the National Austrian Forest Commission, which has leased it to the Salzburg Association of Cave Exploration since 1928. The Forest Commission still receives a percentage of the entrance fees.
 
 
 
 

 
Visiting — The cave is open from May 1st to October 26th every year. Its operating hours are 9:00 a.m. To 4:30 p.m. In July and August and 9:00 a.m. To 3:30 p.m. In May/June and September/October.  Temperatures inside the cave are usually below freezing, and warm clothing is recommended. Photography is not permitted once visitors are inside the cave. The tour begins at the entrance to the cave, and continues inwards to Posselt Hall, a large room with a stalagmite called Posselt Tower in the centre. Past the Posselt Tower, one encounters an ashen cross on the wall of the cave, marking the farthest point of exploration of Anton Posselt. From there one can see the Great Ice Embankment, a massive formation that rises to a height of 25 metres and represents the area of greatest ice growth. Next is Hymir's Castle, named after a giant in Norse mythology. Here stalactites create a formation called Frigga's Veil, or the Ice Organ. Next on the tour is the Alexander von Mörk Cathedral, one of the largest rooms in the cave and the final resting place of von Mörk's ashes. The final stop on the tour is the Ice Palace, a kilometre into the cave and 400 metres underground. From here, visitors must turn around and walk back through the caves to reach the entrance. The round-trip tour through the cave takes around one hour and 15 minutes. Wiki

[karachi-Friends] Daily Qur'an & Hadith 24 Oct 2013 (18 Zhu'al-Hijjah 1434)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[26].Surah Ash-Shuara [The Poets]

Ayat 63. Then Allah inspired Musa PBUH (Moses) (saying): "Strike the sea with your stick." And it parted, and each separate part (of that sea water) became like the huge, firm mass of a mountain.

Ayat 64. Then brought near the others [Firaun's (Pharaoh) party] to that place.

Ayat 65. And Allah saved Musa PBUH (Moses) and all those with him.

Ayat 66. Then drowned (Firaun and) the others (in the Sea).

Ayat 67. Verily! In this is indeed a sign (or a proof), yet most of them are not believers.

Ayat 68. And verily, your Lord! He is truly the All-Mighty, the Most Merciful. 

Tafseer of Ayat 63 to 68. Then We told Moses by inspiration: "Strike the sea with thy rod." So it divided, and each separate part became like the huge, firm mass of a mountain. And We made the other party approach thither. The miracle was twofold: (1) Moses with his people passed safely through the sea; and (2) Pharaoh and his great host were drowned in the sea. We delivered Moses and all who were with him; But We drowned the others. Verily in this is a Sign: but most of them do not believe. As it was then, so it is now. In spite of the obvious Signs of Allah, people who are blind in their obstinate resistance to Truth accomplish their own destruction, while humble, persecuted men of Faith are transformed by the Light of Allah, and obtain salvation. And verily thy Lord is He, the Exalted in Might, Most Merciful. Nothing that the powers of Evil can do, will ever defeat the merciful Purpose of Allah. Evil, in resisting good, will effect its own destruction.

English Translation of Hadith  

Hazrat Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH)observed Saum (fasting) on the day of `Ashura' and commanded us to fast on this day.

[Al-Bukhari Book 03, Chapter 31, Hadith # 222].

Lesson : as mentioned in another Hadith, it is stated that when the Prophet  (PBUH) emigrated from Makkah to Al-Madinah, he saw that the Jews were fasting on this day. He asked them why they did this on that day, and they told him that they did it for the reason that Allah granted Prophet Musa emancipation from Pharaoh on this day by drowning him in Sea, and so they observed Saum in token of their joy. On this, he  (PBUH) said that in this happiness of Prophet Musa, Muslims have a greater right to observe Saum than the Jews. Consequently, he also observed Saum on 10th of Muharram. Then, he said that if he lived the following year, he would observe Saum on 9th of Muharram also so that they would make themselves different from the Jews. According to another Hadith, he  (PBUH) ordained the Muslims to observe Saum on `Ashura' and in addition one more Saum on 9th or 11th of Muharram in opposition to the Jews.
