Speak Olympiad 2008 Gavel club university of moratuwa

The SO3 priliminary round was concluded yesterday.with 24 participants .12 were selected to the semifinals due to be held next thursday.i was lucky enough to get selected .but a major defect was that no level 4 students took part in the event,Also some of the level 3 also did not take part ,thus leaving the competitive edge out of the competition.But it was superbly organized with a mark of professionalism.Speak Olympiad is the official speech contest of the university of moratuwa.It is a yearly event organized by the prestigious university Gavel Club.The gavel club which is an affiliate of the toastmasters movement works to uplift and develop the soft skills (mostly presentation and public speaking) of the budding young engineers.

Bomb blast near university of moratuwa

today at 7.45 there was a bomb blast near uni where the bus was leaving the uni is said to be a claymore bomb activated by remote and hidden in the wela.
The blood thirsty tigers will not stop at nothing.They do not care about civilian life and will do any demonic thing to achieve there so called home land.

The tamil students view point about this is that it is in retaliation to the bombs blasted by the army in vanni which has killed tamil people in the LTTE controlled area.

this seems to be a farce to misleed the international community and to show the tigers as a very decent organization.

according to the most recent reports one student of our department(ellectrical engineering) has been caught in the blast and passed away.(of the 2004 batch)

Electrical Jokes

here are some jokes about electricity i downloaded to include in my speech.

Discussing the Human Body

Three engineering students were gathered together discussing the possible designers of the human body.

One said, "It was a mechanical engineer. Just look at all the joints."

Another said, "No, it was an electrical engineer. The nervous system has many thousands of electrical connections."

The last said, "Actually, it was a civil engineer. Who else would run a toxic waste pipeline through a recreational area?"

What Thomas Edison's Mother might have said to her son

"Of course I'm proud that you invented the electric light bulb. Now turn it off and get to bed!"

The Four Engineers

Once there were four engineers traveling in a car.
While they were traveling to their destination the car stalled on them.

The first engineer who was a mechanical engineer said, "don't worry it's probably engine problems. I"ll just pop open the hood and take a look at the motor".

The second engineer, who was an electrical engineer, said, "no, no ,no. it's an electrical problem. Let me look at the fuse box and I'll find the problem".

The third engineer, who was a chemical engineer, said, "its just a problem with the fuel. Flush all of the gas and replace it with new gas and you'll see that the car will be fine."

Then the three engineers looked at the fourth who was a "Microsoft" computer engineer. And his response was... "Why don't we just get out of the car, shut all of the doors, and then open them again and get back in and start it!"

As seen on electrical-base business:

=>On an electrician's truck: "Let us remove your shorts."

=>At the electric company: "We would be delighted if you send in your bill. However, if you don't, you will be."

Tainting the Family Tree

The Smith's were proud of their family tradition. Their ancestors had come to America on the Mayflower. They had included Senators and Wall Street wizards.

They decided to compile a family history, a legacy for their children and grandchildren. They hired a fine author. Only one problem arose - how to handle that great-uncle George, who was executed in the electric chair.

The author said he could handle the story tactfully.

The book appeared. It said "Great-uncle George occupied a chair of applied electronics at an important government institution, was attached to his position by the strongest of ties, and his death came as a great shock."

A Look at Relationships

My partner and I have the secret to making a relationship last.

01. Two times a week, we go to a nice restaurant, have a little wine, some good food and companionship. She goes Tuesdays, I go Fridays.

02. We also sleep in separate beds. Hers is in Sydney and mine is in Brisbane.

03. I take my partner everywhere, but she keeps finding her way back.

04. I asked my partner where she wanted to go for our anniversary. "Somewhere I haven't been in a long time!" she said. So I suggested the kitchen.

05. We always hold hands. If I let go, she shops.

06. She has an electric blender, electric toaster, and electric bread maker. Then she said, "There are too many gadgets, and no place to sit down!" So I bought her an electric chair.

07. My partner told me the car wasn't running well because there was water in the carburetor. I asked where the car was, she told me, "In the lake."

08. My partner is on a new diet. Coconuts and bananas. She hasn't lost weight, but BOY, can she climb a tree now!

09. She got a mud pack and looked great for two days. Then the mud fell off.

10. She ran after the garbage truck, yelling, "Am I too late for the garbage?" The driver said, "No, jump in!"
