The mystery of a yeti finger stolen from Nepal half a century ago and smuggled with the help of the actor James Stewart has been solved by scientists at Edinburgh Zoo, The finger is now held in the Royal College of Surgeons museum in London. The finger was taken from a Nepalese monastery by an American explorer in the 1950s. Stewart smuggled it out of India in his wife’s lingerie case. DNA tests found it to be human bone but not an Abominable Snowman called Yeti. “It was obviously slightly disappointing,” said researcher Rob Ogden of the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland.
Research carried out on a BBC documentary yesterday, tracked down 85 years old Mr Byrne, to his home in the US, where he confirmed it was the one taken from the monastery.
He Said “The temple had a number of Sherpa custodians,” “I heard one of them speaking Nepalese, which I speak. He told me that they had in the temple the hand of a yeti which had been there for many years

Google Inc installed the Google cache server in Nepal at NTC office Jawalakhel Internet Exchange Point, operated by Nepal Telecom(NTC).
A Google cache server is a dedicated network server that saves Web pages or other Internet content locally. By placing previously requested information in temporary storage, or cache, a cache server both speeds up access to data and reduces demand on an enterprise’s bandwidth.
With the installation of google cache server the services provided by Google will be faster than before. Google services such as Gmail, Youtube etc will now be accessed faster from Nepal. This will also help NTC by reducing its bandwidth access and reduce its cost.
“After the installation of Google server, Internet bandwidth uses of NTC has been decreased” Said NTC representatives.
How NTC reduce its cost with the installation of google cache server?
