Chennai Airport: In-line baggage screening

Chennai airport starts in-line baggage screening for International travel.Chennai is the second airport to get this facility in India, after Ahmedabad.
Hopefully this will introduce more space in the passenger halls, as X-ray machines would be removed soon.
I always hated these X-ray machines. They diminished the airport's appearence and increased the time passengers got to spend during check-in process.
I believe Chennai airport would get another face lift when the new terminal is made available for passengers. I can not wait for those days.

Saudi Arabia - Six year cap on the residency of foreigners

Saudi Arabia is planning to impose a six-year cap on the residency of foreigners in the country as part of its program to regulate the local labor market. This move will likely affect a large number of Indians working in that country.

Would this be applicable for all types of  workers? I know so many skilled workers who work in Saudi Arabia and they have been there for more than six years. This would be a big change for them. Hopefully this cap might not be applicable for all skilled categories.

Fixed Malware protection virus

I was visiting some websites and suddenly I got an alert about my system protection status. After some research, I came to know that it is "Malware Protection virus". I removed this virus in 30 minutes by following the simple steps below.
  1. Restart your system in safe mode.
  2. Download Malwarebytes anti-Malware program from the link http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html or http://www.techspot.com/downloads/4716-malwarebytes-anti-malware.html
  3. Install and run the application.
  4. The application should detect the malware and provide you the options to handle it.
This should solve the Malware protection virus problem.

Note: It is very important that you restart your system in "Safe Mode". Otherwise, this virus would not allow you to download or run any program.
