  2. Mykonos can be called the Colossus of beach parties.
  3. The island of Mauritius is like a jewel floating on emerald-blue water.

  6. Fiji is a nation of islands. Countless beaches, sea and sand are synonymous with this country.
  7. A long stretch of white, surrounded by various shades of blue and speckled with green -- that's Palolem, the place its natives call Paradise Beach.
  8. If you have always wanted both a serene and a hectic getaway, then Phuket is the perfect destination for you.
  9. The Havelock Island lies 55 kms northeast of Port Blair -- a serene, sandy stretch of land surrounded by crystal clear water.
  10. Often described as Philippines' last frontier, the Palawan archipelago is a masterpiece of nature. The limestone landscape is coloured in with tropical rainforests, underground rivers, rocky coves and sugar-white sandy beaches.

Messi tops Beckham to become best-paid footballer

Barcelona's Lionel Messi has deposed David Beckham to top France Football's list of the highest-paid players.



The Argentina forward is said to have made 33 million ($44 million) last year.

Beckham, who has been first or second in each of the last nine years, took home 30.4 million ($40.5 million) in 2009, according to the report.

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo was third with 30 million ($40 million), while teammate Kaka was a distant fourth with 18.8 million ($25 million). Thierry Henry was fifth with 18 million ($24 million).

Ravindra Jadeja's ban from the 2010 season of the IPL on grounds of contractual violations has been upheld.

The IPL's governing council had banned Jadeja for one season on instructions from Shashank Manohar, the BCCI president, because he failed to sign the renewal contract with Rajasthan for the ongoing season and attempted to negotiate a new contract with Mumbai. The decision was taken during a hearing chaired by Arun Jaitley, an eminent lawyer and head of the Delhi and Districts Cricket Association, following representations from the player and the two franchises involved - Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians. Ravindra Jadeja committed a breach on two counts; firstly, by not signing the contract with the Rajasthan Royals for IPL 2010, wherein he wanted to declare himself free from contractual obligations and failed to discharge his obligations under the player trading rules. Secondly, Jadeja's act of meeting representatives of the Mumbai Indian franchise and sending his contract documents to them for inspection and his own admission that he received documents from Mumbai Indians and used them for representation purposes to the governing council, reveal that he was indeed guilty of breaching the operational rules by approaching another Franchise."
Jaitley upheld the ban after finding that "the player contrived a situation to his advantage by breaching the player trading rules and not signing his third year contract for IPL 2010 with the Rajasthan Royals", the league said in a statement and also recommended that Mumbai be warned for "having approached a player who was under an obligation to play for another franchise" and said "a more deterrent line of action should be considered" for future offences of this nature.

Mohammad Yousuf set to retire


Mohammad Yousuf is preparing to retire from all forms of international cricket, a direct result it is believed, of the treatment and punishment the PCB handed out to him in the aftermath of Pakistan's recent Australian tour of which he was captain. "I have decided to quit cricket," Yousuf told the Urdu-language daily Jang. "This is not an emotional decision. I consulted my family, friends and elders before taking it."

The board blamed Yousuf for spreading infighting and indiscipline within the side and banned him for an indefinite period - along with Younis Khan - from all forms of the international game. He was subsequently not included in the central contracts list for this year. Yousuf was handed an indefinite ban as per the recommendations of an inquiry committee

Yousuf had taken over the captaincy last year when Younis stepped down following an ODI series loss to New Zealand in Abu Dhabi, at a time he says no one was willing to take the responsibility. Though he hasn't yet specified the reasons behind his decision, it is believed that the PCB's punishment and a lack of support from the board have made his mind up for him.

If it is the final goodbye - and his current mood, say friends, indicates that he is serious - then Pakistan will lose the services of their most accomplished batsman of the decade alongside Inzamam-ul-Haq. He has over seven thousand Test runs from 88 Tests at 53.07, the highest for any Pakistani batsman. He has 39 international hundreds, including 24 in Tests alone. Pakistan are due to play six Tests in England this summer, a prospect they must now consider - if Younis also misses out - without either of their most formidable middle-order batsmen.

Pune and Kochi unveiled as new IPL franchises

The financial might of the IPL was on display again, when Pune and Kochi became the league's two new franchises, being sold for a value in excess of the original eight franchises combined.

The Sahara group, the biggest patron of sports in the country, became owners of the Pune franchise after offering a staggering US$370m. Sahara, who have been sponsoring Indian cricket for the past 15 years, had bid for the same amount for three cities, but ultimately chose Pune over Ahmedabad and Nagpur. "When we considered the cities, in terms of infrastructure and logistics, Pune came first," Abhijit Sarkar, the head of Sahara's corporate communications, said. "Ït is also close to Mumbai - the commercial capital of India - and Aamby Valley (an upmarket township owned by the Sahara group)."

The other new franchisee is a consortium of five companies called Rendezvous Sports World, which bid US$333.33m for Kochi. It is a consortium with five partners - the Rendezvous group, Parini developers, Anand Shah Estate, Anchor Earth Private Limited and Film Waves. Minister of state for external affairs Shashi Tharoor was involved in bringing the group together, but has no stake in the franchise and his role was limited to encouraging the consortium that bagged the team. "My role consisted only of encouraging and blessing the venture, and steering it to Kerala. Shailendra Gaikwad of Rendezvous World Sport said, "We have closely been following every development within the IPL, right from the inaugural year. Today, I am very happy for our consortium of Rendezvous World Sport and the people of Kochi as we finally have a team to call our own in this amazing city-based sports franchise".

There were three other qualified bidders, including Adani Enterprises and VC digital solutions Pvt Ltd (Videocon), who were in the fray to become part of the IPL.

Networking basics

The most common way of describing a network is the International Standards Organization's Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) Reference Model, also referred to as the OSI seven-layer model. The seven layers of the OSI model areas follows:

7 Application
6 Presentation
5 Session
4 Transport
3 Network
2 Data Link
1 Physical

Levels 1 through 3 are network specific, and will differ depending on what physical network you are using. Levels 4 through 7 comprise network-independent, higher level functions. Each layer describes a particular function (instead of a specific protocol) that occurs in data communications.
