Hi! It was an awful day yesterday. Those who yesterday came on the site could see a warning from Google that the site is spreading malicious software and is not recommended to visit. When I saw this I got very upset. I started to check the site. Everything was clean. The problem was detected in an advertisement that we placed. I removed it immediately and applied to Google to remove Izismile from a black list. Google quickly viewed the application and 7 hours ago removed the warning.
I'll say it again. We would never let that happen on purpose, to harm and infect your computers. Our reputation is on stake. Izismile is 6 months old and we never had such incidents. Could someone really think that after six months we decided to pull such a dirty trick? ) Never! We would never do it even for all the money in the world :) Because we appreciate you and your opinion about us is very important. Good Friday to you and have an excellent weekend. See you on Monday!

Imagine if you could look at something once and remember it forever. The group of scientists was studying a poorly-understood region of the visual cortex. The researchers concluded that this region of the visual cortex, known as layer six of region V2, is responsible for creating visual memories. They found that if they boosted production of a protein called RGS-14 (pictured) in that area of the visual cortex in mice, it dramatically affected the animals' ability to remember objects they had seen. What's particularly intriguing is the fact that this protein works on visual memory only. So, it would be perfect for mapping. It would also be useful for engineers and architects who need to hold a lot of visual images in their minds at once. And it would also be a great drug for detectives and spies.
An astonished mother has told how she gave birth to conjoined twins despite being told by medics she was expecting two normal babies. Scans and ultrasound tests had failed to pick up that the babies were joined at the waist, forming one long body with a head at each end.

The commanding officer of a regiment in the U.S. Marine Corps was about to start the morning briefing to his staff, battalion and company commanders. While waiting for the coffee machine to finish its brewing, the colonel decided to pose a question to all assembled. He explained that his wife had been a bit frisky the night before and he failed to get his usual amount of sound sleep. He posed the question of just how much of sex was ‘work’ and how much of it was ‘pleasure?’ The regimental executive officer chimed in with 75-25% in favor of work. A captain said it was 50-50%. The colonel’s aide responded with 75-25% in favor of pleasure, depending on his state of inebriation at the time. There being no consensus, the colonel turned to the private who was in charge of making the coffee. What was HIS opinion? Without any hesitation, the young PFC responded, ‘Sir, it has to be 100% pleasure.’ The colonel was surprised and, as you might guess, asked why? ‘Well, sir, if there was any work involved, the officers would have me doing it for them.’ The room fell silent.
Hi! The first working days have passed very quickly. Today it’s Wednesday, which means that Friday is not far away :) The most important news of yesterday was, of course, the funeral of Michael Jackson which was turned into a show. First, the burial ceremony of the singer took place at the cemetery Forest Lawn and then was held a farewell concert with the participation of world stars in Staples Center. More than a million fans of the pop idol arrived in Los Angeles, but only the 20,000 persons who managed to buy tickets could see all this on live. For those who have not watched the ceremony on TV, I gathered some photos. Here’s a quick photo report from the scene. Click on the picture

Jimmy went to a psychiatrist. “Doc,” he said, “I’ve got trouble. Every time I get into bed, I think there’s somebody under it. I’m going crazy!” “Just put yourself in my hands for one year,” said the shrink. “Come to me three times a week, and I’ll cure your fears.” How much do you charge?” “A hundred dollars per visit.” I’ll sleep on it,” said Jimmy. Six months later the doctor met Jimmy on the street. “Why didn’t you ever come to see me again?” asked the psychiatrist. “For a hundred bucks a visit? A bartender cured me for $10.” “Is that so! How?” “He told me to cut the legs off the bed! Ain’t nobody under there now!!!
I recently asked my friends' little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President some day. Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked her, 'If you were President what would be the first thing you would do? ' She replied, 'I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people.' Her parents beamed. 'Wow...what a worthy goal.' I told her, 'But you don't have to wait until you're President to do that.. You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and rake my yard, and I'll pay you $50. Then I'll take you over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house. ' She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, ' Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50? I said, 'Welcome to the Republican Party.' Her parents still aren't speaking to me.

Hi! Today is Wednesday, which means a little Friday ;) Two days before the weekend! ) I have not very good news. Last week I received 4 letters with complaints that users’ anti-virus (firewalls, Google etc.) alarm about different viruses, Trojans and malwares on our site. It is not TRUE. Izismile is completely clean of all this dirt. Not a single line of the site’s code contains any virus. I know this for sure. We spent a lot of time yesterday on checking the site. Nothing at all. It’s clean. There’s another explanation to it. A week ago, we started working with a new advertising agency MediaShakers and embedded codes of their banners on the site. It is those codes that might have contained malware in order to fraud the number of page views for their advertisement. Personally, neither my antivirus nor firewall alarmed me about the threats that could be caused due to this advertising. Yesterday, we completely stopped the cooperation with this agency and permanently removed their advertising from the site. Therefore, I want to apologize to all visitors who were affected with this and had problems with Trojans / malware. In the future, we will be more careful when checking our partners and this won’t happen again. I want to ask all of you who had these problems to send me an email and tell me what was the day when it occurred. Have a nice Wednesday )

A police officer in a small town stopped a motorist who was speeding down Main Street. "But officer," the man began, "I can explain." "Quiet!" snapped the officer. "I'm going to let you spend the night in jail until the chief gets back." "But, officer, I just wanted to say," "And I said be quiet! You're going to jail!" A few hours later the officer looked in on his prisoner and said, "Lucky for you, the chief's at his daughter's wedding. He'll be in a good mood when he gets back." "Don't count on it," answered the guy in the cell. "I'm the groom."

Hi! Friday is almost here, but as for now, let’s work and have a good time on Izi ) We decided to do an unprecedented experiment. Today we remove smileys until the end of the next week. Why? I already wrote several times that the use of some smileys and emoticons - is not the expression of opinion in the comments, but is just laziness to think and write something interesting. Some of our visitors, willing to be on first place in the "Most active commentators", use only smileys. Now we will see who really wants to talk, leave their opinion, listen to the others and to have a discussion with other people. I really hope that there are a lot of such people on the site and we eventually will have a great communication :) And in this situation, I support all those people who are against smileys on the site at all. If you think that your English is bad, it’s not that big a deal, write your comment anyway. No one’s here to judge your language skills. In any case, it would be better than to leave a non-significant smiley. But it will only last one week. And then we decide if it’s worth to return the smileys or not. May be we will leave 10 the most usable.
Several amusing pictures with stars.

Psst! Do you need friends, relatives, or even your boss to come to your wedding but don’t have any? If you’re in Japan, then you’re in luck: no need to make friends, just hire ‘em! Office Agents, a Tokyo-based company, rents out friends, work colleagues and even relatives to pad out the guest list. For £127, one of the company’s agents will attend the wedding as a guest, while a heart-tugging speech will cost an extra £64 and a song or dance will set clients back a mere £32. Brides or grooms who want to impress their prospective partners with their sheer volume of friends are among those secretly padding the guest list with fakes. The recession has also boosted the popularity of the service. With unemployment rising and a growing number of Japanese in part time jobs, people rent fake bosses or colleagues. Others turning to the company for fake work-related guests are those who have recently lost their jobs but want to maintain an air of respectability, according to Hiroshi Mizutani, who heads Office Agents.
