Yannie, an O'BON International employee, had just recently undergone surgery to removing two tumors from her brain. The operation, sponsored by the owners of O'BON, lasted 4 hours and involved a very delicate procedure. Latest news from Malaysia reports that the operation went well, doctors are happy with their work, and Yannie is still recovering in the ICU. Will update everybody once we hear more.

Domtar Corporation, a large paper producer in North America is getting frustrated over all the "think before you print" messages attached to emails these days [source: the globe and mail]. So much so that they are preparing a large-scale internet campaign to encourage people to print - their logic being "people shouldn't feel guilty about using paper". Millions of dollars will be pumped into print and online marketing in high hopes of convincing printer-conservatives to use more paper. Good job Mr. John Williams, CEO of Domstar, the whole world now knows you're not the sharpest tool in the lumberyard.

File 1755


In August of 2009, Yannie Ye, a then junior desk clerk for O'BON International began to notice an usual pattern of problems seemingly related to her health. She was constantly tired despite well-rested nights and she had begun to suffer from headaches at an alarming frequency. Convinced this was not a problem to be taking lightly, she consulted with her doctors. After a series of physical examinations, it was determined that Yannie, now 24, was suffering from two tumors lodged in the back of her brain. In the following month, she was diagnosed with hereditary von Hippel-Lindau disease, a disorder characterized by the abnormal growth of tumors in various parts of the body. Left untreated, VHL causes brain damage and ultimately death.

The only thing scarier than oil spills, rapid deforestation and global warming is trying to capture the attention of a classroom of first graders.

For those of who who may be living under a rock or, perhaps more appropriately, out in the wilderness, on April 20th the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico exploded and sank resulting in an underwater leak that has been gushing thousands of barrels of crude oil per day towards Louisiana's coast (local fisherman were claiming to just now finally be getting over the effects of Hurricane Katrina). Needless to day, local fish and bird populations have been devastated and the gulf has been destroyed. USA Today has released an interactive map that shows the extent of the spill and gradual changes in size and scope.
