Hand Tools Classification
On the basis of the various purposes served, hand tools can be classified into four different sections:
Cutting, Pinching, Gripping Tools: As the name suggests, these tools are used for cutting, pinching and gripping purposes. Cutting tools are used not only to cut a physical object into pieces but also used to remove metal or wood from the workpiece by means of sheer deformation. Hand tools are also used for gripping objects by using leverage. For example: Pliers, Cutters, Snips
Striking Tools: The striking tools are the most widely used tools and they are also considered to be the the most often abused tool. Chiseling, punching and riveting can be done properly using striking tools. Hand-held striking tools have been used in a variety of disciplines as leveraged devices providing a striking force to complete endless variety of tasks. For example: Hammers, Chisels
Driving Tools: Driving hand tools are those tools which are designed in a such a way so that insertion, tightening, loosening, removing screws, bolts, nails or other pointed objects or hard to turn items is done by applying torque. These tools have mechanical advantage in applying torque. For example: Screwdrivers, Nut drivers, Hand wrenches, T-handle wrenches

Bigfoot gets big buzz
Bigfoot: It's a riddle wrapped in a mystery, or something like that. But is it an enigma because it doesn't exist (say it isn't so!) or because we haven't had the technology to properly document the evidence? Members of Sasquatch Watch are definitely in the latter camp. And a group of intrepid Bigfoot hunters were on the move in the Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia, armed with all the gee-whiz gadgets needed to prove, for sure, without ambiguity, definitely, that Bigfoot exists. Maybe. Although some suspicious footprints were preserved with plaster of Paris in areas where there have been previous so-called sightings of the beast, un-fun skeptics are unsure if this is the real deal. But enthusiasts of the furry biped have already helped launch big buzz on the Web. Searches on "latest bigfoot sightings" shot up over 100%. Amateur sleuths also sought out "real bigfoot pictures," "bigfoot evidence," and "bigfoot research organization."
Please don't sneeze on your pet
It's enough that you have to worry about you and your kids catching swine flu this season. But now you also have to be concerned for ... your cat. That's right. Your furry friend can catch it, from you. At least that's the case for a 13-year-old feline in Iowa diagnosed with H1N1 after its two owners both came down with the flu. The cat was treated at a veterinary hospital after appearing lethargic, losing its appetite and having trouble breathing. All three have recovered. Although this is the first documented case, consider it a cautionary tale. While searches on "swine flu symptoms" were up this week almost 400%, lookups on "swine flu in cats" also increased. (Read up on how to protect pets from the swine flu.)
