Making America Gay-Friendly..

Joe Biden Attributes Social Liberalism to Jewish Control of Hollywood and ‘Social Media’
By Patrick Brennan
May 23, 2013
 

Vice President Joe Biden offered praise for the Jewish community that raised some eyebrows and seems to have delighted anti-Semitic conspiracy theorists. At a DNC event for Jewish American Heritage Month on Tuesday evening, after noting Jewish Americans’ disproportionate representation in Congress, impressive share of Nobel Prizes, and role in the civil-rights and womens’-rights movements, Biden then praised their work in behalf of gay marriage via their control of the media.
“I believe what affects the movements in America, what affects our attitudes in America are as much the culture and the arts as anything else,” he explained, “. . . Think behind of all that, I bet you 85 percent of those changes, whether it’s in Hollywood or social media are a consequence of Jewish leaders in the industry.”

Biden also cited one of his favorite explanations for the success of gay marriage — “it wasn’t anything we legislatively did. It was Will and Grace, it was the social media. Literally. That’s what changed peoples’ attitudes. That’s why I was so certain that the vast majority of people would embrace and rapidly embrace” the measure.

In those developments, Biden explained, “the influence [of Jewish people] is immense. The influence is immense.”

The vice president’s comments have been seized upon and praised by a range of anti-Semitic and white-supremacist groups and websites, even though he said, “I might add” the Jewish community’s influence in the media “is all to the good.”

A "Women's Conference" in Saudi..

The conference in Saudi Arabia on 'women in society', where only men attended.
 
A picture of a conference in Saudi Arabia on 'women in society' – attended by men only – has gone viral. As absurd as it sounds, it reminds Louisa Peacock of a typical UK business conference.  

No room for girls at a 'women's conference' in Saudi: Is this ridiculous spectacle real?

By Louisa Peacock

27 Jun 2013

It's a good gag by whoever's come up with it – a room full of Saudi Arabian men supposedly coming together to talk about 'women in society'. Without any women present.
No wonder the picture's currently doing the rounds on Twitter – both men and women are laughing at the absurdity and hypocrisy of it.

And yet, is it really that absurd? We don't actually know if the photo is real. But this is a country where women are not allowed to drive, women cannot vote or be elected to high political positions – oh, and stoning them to death if they try to leave their husbands is still OK.

It's not too hard to make the leap, then, that Saudi Arabia would seriously, actually, run a conference about 'what to do with all these women' – those who are rising up, who are starting to disobey the 'norms'. Post the Arab spring and this 'new world' of politics – it's possible women may want a change in culture in the Middle East. And the men don't like it.

Regardless, even if it is just a picture of any old get together – to talk about business or politics – it still screams alarm bells at you: the fact that no women are present is telling.
Perhaps it was, literally, a man's only event and the originator of this gag is just making a point.
Come to think of it, his or her point is well heard. I have been to many a business conference in the UK over the years that may as well be men-only: a sea of grey suits and balding, middle aged men doesn't help to inspire the new generation, especially women, into industry.

If it seems absurd that Saudi Arabia would host a male-only event excluding women, perhaps it is just an exaggerated version of what goes on in the Western world?
But before the UK Government is tempted to launch an Inquiry into said problem, let's just enjoy this photo for what I believe it is: a good gag.

Turkish Kolbasti Dance



 
The best I found online..
The elements of this energetic youth-dance is spreading across the communities from Greece to Turkmenistan.. From Russia to Iran..
 
Relates to Cold weather.. Fun.. Pride.. and Challenges..


Kolbastı is a popular Turkish dance. It was originally created in the 1930s in the seaport of Trabzon on the Black Sea coast of north-eastern Turkey. Loosely translated, 'kolbastı' means 'caught red-handed by the police.' According to legend, the name comes from nightly police patrols of the city to round up drunks, who made up a song with the lyrics: 'They came, they caught us, they beat us' (in Turkish: 'Geldiler, bastılar, vurdular').
In the past few years this dance has grown very popular and is spreading in popularity outside the region. These days this dance is mostly used for weddings or by youngsters who like to show off and attract girls.
Kolbastı never disappeared from Trabzon. It's always been part of local culture. What's new, though, is that people from outside the region have taken to the dance.

مفاهيــــم متطـــــــــــــورة


خلال عملية سطو في كوانغتشو ، الصين
صرخ لص البنك موجها كلامه الى الأشخاص الموجودين داخل البنك
لا تتحركوا المال ملك للدولة وحياتكم ملك لكم
إستلقى الجميع على الارض بكل هدوء
وهذا ما يسمى "مفهوم تغيير التفكير" تغيير الطريقة التقليدية في التفكير

وعندما إستلقت سيدة على طاولة بشكل استفزازي
صرخ اللص في وجهها: رجاء كوني متحضرة .. هذه سرقة وليست إغتصاب
وهذا ما يسمى "أن تكون محترفا" التركيز فقط على ما تدربت على القيام به

عندما عاد اللصوص الى مقرهم.. قال اللص (الأصغر عمرا و الذي يحمل شهادة ماستر في إدارة الأعمال) لزعيم اللصوص (وكان اكبرهم سنا وكان قد أنهى فقط 6 سنوات تعليم في المدرسة الإبتدائية): يا زعيم دعنا نحصي كم من الاموال سرقنا
قام الزعيم بنهره و قال له “انت غبي جدا ! هذه كمية كبيرة من الأموال ، وستأخذ منا وقت طويل لعدها
الليلة سوف نعرف من نشرات الأخبار كم سرقنا من الأموال
وهذا ما يسمى "الخبرة". في هذه الأيام ، الخبرة أكثر أهمية من المؤهلات الورقية

بعد أن غادر اللصوص البنك ، قال مدير البنك لمدير الفرع ، إتصل بالشرطة بسرعة
ولكن مدير الفرع قال له: "إنتظر دعنا نأخذ 10 ملايين دولار ونحتفظ بها لأنفسنا ونضيفها الى ال 70 مليون دولار اللتي قمنا بإختلاسها سابقا
وهذا ما يسمى "السباحة مع التيار". تحويل وضع غير موات لصالحك

قال مدير الفرع: سيكون الأمر رائعا إذا كان هناك سرقة كل شهر
وهذا ما يسمى "قتل الملل" السعادة الشخصية أكثر أهمية من وظيفتك

في اليوم التالي ، ذكرت وكالات الإخبار ان 100 مليون دولار تمت سرقتها من البنك. قام اللصوص بعد النقود المرة تلو المرة وفي كل مرة كانو يجدوا ان المبلغ هو 20 مليون دولار فقط
غضب اللصوص كثيرا و قالوا: نحن خاطرنا بحياتنا من أجل 20 مليون دولار ، و مدير البنك حصل على 80 مليون دولار من دون أن تتسخ ملابسه حتى
يبدو أن من الأفضل أن يكون متعلما بدلا من أن تكون لصا
وهذا ما يسمى "المعرفة تساوي قيمتها ذهبا

كان مدير البنك يبتسم سعيدا لأن خسائره في سوق الأسهم تمت تغطيتها بهذه السرقة
 

و هذا ما يسمى “إقتناص الفرصة”. الجرأة على القيام بالمخاطرة
فاللصوص الحقيقين هم غالباً الوزراء والوكلاء والمدراء العامين و والمدراء الماليين وغيرهم كثير ، لكنهم لصوص بشهادات 

فهذا واقعنا يفهمه من به عقلٌ

Privacy or Protection..?

GCHQ taps Fiber-Optic Cables for Secret Access to World's Communications

 
GCHQ's base in Cheltenham
 
Guardian Exclusive: British spy agency collects and stores vast quantities of global email messages, Facebook posts, internet histories and calls, and shares them with NSA, latest documents from Edward Snowden reveal
 
Britain's spy agency GCHQ has secretly gained access to the network of cables which carry the world's phone calls and internet traffic and has started to process vast streams of sensitive personal information which it is sharing with its American partner, the National Security Agency (NSA).
The sheer scale of the agency's ambition is reflected in the titles of its two principal components: Mastering the Internet and Global Telecoms Exploitation, aimed at scooping up as much online and telephone traffic as possible. This is all being carried out without any form of public acknowledgement or debate.
One key innovation has been GCHQ's ability to tap into and store huge volumes of data drawn from fibre-optic cables for up to 30 days so that it can be sifted and analysed. That operation, codenamed Tempora, has been running for some 18 months.
GCHQ and the NSA are consequently able to access and process vast quantities of communications between entirely innocent people, as well as targeted suspects.
This includes recordings of phone calls, the content of email messages, entries on Facebook and the history of any internet user's access to websites – all of which is deemed legal, even though the warrant system was supposed to limit interception to a specified range of targets.

'The UK has a huge dog in this fight'

The existence of the programme has been disclosed in documents shown to the Guardian by the NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden as part of his attempt to expose what he has called "the largest programme of suspicionless surveillance in human history".
"It's not just a US problem. The UK has a huge dog in this fight," Snowden told the Guardian. "They [GCHQ] are worse than the US."
However, on Friday a source with knowledge of intelligence argued that the data was collected legally under a system of safeguards, and had provided material that had led to significant breakthroughs in detecting and preventing serious crime.
Britain's technical capacity to tap into the cables that carry the world's communications – referred to in the documents as special source exploitation – has made GCHQ an intelligence superpower.
By 2010, two years after the project was first trialled, it was able to boast it had the "biggest internet access" of any member of the Five Eyes electronic eavesdropping alliance, comprising the US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
UK officials could also claim GCHQ "produces larger amounts of metadata than NSA". (Metadata describes basic information on who has been contacting whom, without detailing the content.)

'Light oversight'

By May last year 300 analysts from GCHQ, and 250 from the NSA, had been assigned to sift through the flood of data.
The Americans were given guidelines for its use, but were told in legal briefings by GCHQ lawyers: "We have a light oversight regime compared with the US".
When it came to judging the necessity and proportionality of what they were allowed to look for, would-be American users were told it was "your call".
The Guardian understands that a total of 850,000 NSA employees and US private contractors with top secret clearance had access to GCHQ databases.
The documents reveal that by last year GCHQ was handling 600m "telephone events" each day, had tapped more than 200 fibre-optic cables and was able to process data from at least 46 of them at a time.
Each of the cables carries data at a rate of 10 gigabits per second, so the tapped cables had the capacity, in theory, to deliver more than 21 petabytes a day – equivalent to sending all the information in all the books in the British Library 192 times every 24 hours.
And the scale of the programme is constantly increasing as more cables are tapped and GCHQ data storage facilities in the UK and abroad are expanded with the aim of processing terabits (thousands of gigabits) of data at a time.
For the 2 billion users of the world wide web, Tempora represents a window on to their everyday lives, sucking up every form of communication from the fibre-optic cables that ring the world.
The NSA has meanwhile opened a second window, in the form of the Prism operation, revealed earlier this month by the Guardian, from which it secured access to the internal systems of global companies that service the internet.

'Intercept partners'

The GCHQ mass tapping operation has been built up over five years by attaching intercept probes to transatlantic fibre-optic cables where they land on British shores carrying data to western Europe from telephone exchanges and internet servers in north America.
This was done under secret agreements with commercial companies, described in one document as "intercept partners".
The papers seen by the Guardian suggest some companies have been paid for the cost of their co-operation and GCHQ went to great lengths to keep their names secret. They were assigned "sensitive relationship teams" and staff were urged in one internal guidance paper to disguise the origin of "special source" material in their reports for fear that the role of the companies as intercept partners would cause "high-level political fallout".
The source with knowledge of intelligence said on Friday the companies were obliged to co-operate in this operation. They are forbidden from revealing the existence of warrants compelling them to allow GCHQ access to the cables.
"There's an overarching condition of the licensing of the companies that they have to co-operate in this. Should they decline, we can compel them to do so. They have no choice."
The source said that although GCHQ was collecting a "vast haystack of data" what they were looking for was "needles".
"Essentially, we have a process that allows us to select a small number of needles in a haystack. We are not looking at every piece of straw. There are certain triggers that allow you to discard or not examine a lot of data so you are just looking at needles. If you had the impression we are reading millions of emails, we are not. There is no intention in this whole programme to use it for looking at UK domestic traffic – British people talking to each other," the source said.
He explained that when such "needles" were found a log was made and the interception commissioner could see that log.
"The criteria are security, terror, organised crime. And economic well-being. There's an auditing process to go back through the logs and see if it was justified or not. The vast majority of the data is discarded without being looked at… we simply don't have the resources."

New technology, old law

However, the legitimacy of the operation is in doubt. According to GCHQ's legal advice, it was given the go-ahead by applying old law to new technology. The 2000 Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (Ripa) requires the tapping of defined targets to be authorised by a warrant signed by the home secretary or foreign secretary.
However, an obscure clause allows the foreign secretary to sign a certificate for the interception of broad categories of material, as long as one end of the monitored communications is abroad. But the nature of modern fibre-optic communications means that a proportion of internal UK traffic is relayed abroad and then returns through the cables.
Parliament passed the Ripa law to allow GCHQ to trawl for information, but it did so 13 years ago with no inkling of the scale on which GCHQ would attempt to exploit the certificates, enabling it to gather and process data regardless of whether it belongs to identified targets.
The categories of material have included fraud, drug trafficking and terrorism, but the criteria at any one time are secret and are not subject to any public debate. GCHQ's compliance with the certificates is audited by the agency itself, but the results of those audits are also secret.
An indication of how broad the dragnet can be was laid bare in advice from GCHQ's lawyers, who said it would be impossible to list the total number of people targeted because "this would be an infinite list which we couldn't manage".
There is an investigatory powers tribunal to look into complaints that the data gathered by GCHQ has been improperly used, but the agency reassured NSA analysts in the early days of the programme, in 2009: "So far they have always found in our favour".
Historically, the spy agencies have intercepted international communications by focusing on microwave towers and satellites. The NSA's intercept station at Menwith Hill in North Yorkshire played a leading role in this. One internal document quotes the head of the NSA, Lieutenant General Keith Alexander, on a visit to Menwith Hill in June 2008, asking: "Why can't we collect all the signals all the time? Sounds like a good summer project for Menwith."
By then, however, satellite interception accounted for only a small part of the network traffic. Most of it now travels on fibre-optic cables, and the UK's position on the western edge of Europe gave it natural access to cables emerging from the Atlantic.

Protecting the Olympics

The data collected provides a powerful tool in the hands of the security agencies, enabling them to sift for evidence of serious crime. According to the source, it has allowed them to discover new techniques used by terrorists to avoid security checks and to identify terrorists planning atrocities. It has also been used against child exploitation networks and in the field of cyberdefence.
It was claimed on Friday that it directly led to the arrest and imprisonment of a cell in the Midlands who were planning co-ordinated attacks; to the arrest of five Luton-based individuals preparing acts of terror, and to the arrest of three London-based people planning attacks prior to the Olympics.
As the probes began to generate data, GCHQ set up a three-year trial at the GCHQ station in Bude, Cornwall. By the summer of 2011, GCHQ had probes attached to more than 200 internet links, each carrying data at 10 gigabits a second. "This is a massive amount of data!" as one internal slideshow put it. That summer, it brought NSA analysts into the Bude trials. In the autumn of 2011, it launched Tempora as a mainstream programme, shared with the Americans.
The intercept probes on the transatlantic cables gave GCHQ access to its special source exploitation. Tempora allowed the agency to set up internet buffers so it could not simply watch the data live but also store it – for three days in the case of content and 30 days for metadata.
"Internet buffers represent an exciting opportunity to get direct access to enormous amounts of GCHQ's special source data," one document explained.
The processing centres apply a series of sophisticated computer programmes in order to filter the material through what is known as MVR – massive volume reduction. The first filter immediately rejects high-volume, low-value traffic, such as peer-to-peer downloads, which reduces the volume by about 30%. Others pull out packets of information relating to "selectors" – search terms including subjects, phone numbers and email addresses of interest. Some 40,000 of these were chosen by GCHQ and 31,000 by the NSA. Most of the information extracted is "content", such as recordings of phone calls or the substance of email messages. The rest is metadata.
The GCHQ documents that the Guardian has seen illustrate a constant effort to build up storage capacity at the stations at Cheltenham, Bude and at one overseas location, as well a search for ways to maintain the agency's comparative advantage as the world's leading communications companies increasingly route their cables through Asia to cut costs. Meanwhile, technical work is ongoing to expand GCHQ's capacity to ingest data from new super cables carrying data at 100 gigabits a second. As one training slide told new users: "You are in an enviable position – have fun and make the most of it."

UAE Finances Strengthening; But Risks in Dubai - IMF

A view from the famous Dubai Marina high-end district

The United Arab Emirates is succeeding in strengthening its state finances by restraining spending, and managed last year to reduce the oil price which it needs to balance its budget, the International Monetary Fund said on Thursday.
But the possibility of another boom-and-bust cycle in debt-laden Dubai is a risk for the UAE economy in the medium term, the IMF warned after the emirate announced a string of huge real estate development projects.
The IMF's report, released after annual consultations with the UAE, indicated the country is doing more than other Gulf Arab oil exporters to rein in growth of government spending and reduce its vulnerability to any steep fall of the oil price.
Hit by the global financial slump, Gulf Arab countries boosted spending sharply from 2009, and increased it further in the wake of the Arab Spring uprisings of 2011. The higher spending has succeeded in keeping economies growing, but means state budgets could fall into deficit if oil prices slide.

The UAE began curbing its spending last year, more than doubling its total fiscal surplus - the combined surplus of the federal government and all of the UAE's seven emirates - to 8.8 percent of gross domestic product from 4.1 percent in 2011, the IMF calculated.
This lowered the oil price which the UAE needs to balance its combined budget to $74 per barrel last year from $84 in 2011, the IMF said. Brent crude oil is now around $103.
By contrast, other Gulf Arab countries continued to increase state spending substantially last year and their budget break-even prices have been rising.
The IMF said it welcomed the UAE's plans to continue consolidating its finances: "For 2013, continued fiscal consolidation of around 2 percent of non-oil GDP is planned.
"Fiscal consolidation is expected to be driven by a rationalization of capital spending and subsidies and transfers, while spending on goods and services, defense and security, and the wage bill are expected to increase."

The UAE's finances are difficult to analyze because oil-rich Abu Dhabi, which accounts for roughly 80 percent of the country's fiscal spending, does not publicly release details of its annual budgets and outcomes.
In October, the federal finance ministry published 2011 consolidated fiscal data, releasing such information for the first time ever, but there has been no update on 2012 so far.
Because of lower oil prices, the IMF predicted the UAE's fiscal surplus would shrink to 8.1 percent of GDP this year, before narrowing gradually to 5.1 percent in 2018.
Despite its approval of the UAE's overall policy direction, the IMF warned of risks in Dubai, which suffered a crippling corporate debt crisis in 2009 but is now recovering strongly on the back of rebounding real estate prices.
"At the emirate level, a faster pace of consolidation in Dubai would be desirable to address the emirate's continued debt-related risks," the IMF said.
It also described "insufficient domestic policy reform to mitigate the risk of a renewed boom-and-bust cycle" as a risk for the UAE economy.
"Renewed optimism fuelled by rising real estate prices and loose global liquidity conditions could prompt a renewed cycle of imprudent risk-taking and re-leveraging by GREs (government- related entities) and private companies, which could also affect banks' balance sheets in light of their strong interconnectedness with GREs.
"In the absence of prudent policies, this could fuel short-term growth at the expense of medium-term stability."

Dubai's total debt remains substantial at $142 billion, or around 102 percent of its GDP, and $35 billion of that amount is in government and government-guaranteed debt, the IMF said.
The emirate's GREs have increased their debt to an estimated $93 billion from $84 billion in March 2012, and about $60 billion of that debt falls due in 2013-2017, it added.
In the last few months, state-linked Dubai companies have announced billions of dollars of new real estate projects. For example, last week Emaar Properties and Meraas Holding said they formed a venture to develop a huge area near Dubai's downtown; a commercial center, low- and mid-rise residences, an 18-hole golf course and other facilities would be built over 11 million square meters (2,700 acres).
"While further investment in the development of Dubai's economy is welcome, the authorities should ensure that, in line with current intentions, execution will be gradual and flexible depending on demand," the IMF said.

"New investments should be structured in a way that strictly limits risk-taking by the still highly indebted GRE sector," it said, adding that availability of financial data on the health of Dubai's GREs was still inadequate.
After protests by UAE commercial banks, the central bank (CBU) has postponed introducing planned caps on mortgage lending and loans to government-related bodies. The IMF said such rules were important to ensure financial stability.
"Looking ahead, the CBU should carefully monitor the interaction of mortgage lending and the real estate sector, and tighten the mortgage regulation or introduce new measures as needed," it said.

Talking Marriage..


 
Deformed Marriage; whereas parenthood competences decline, psychic stresses are high, and emotional divorce rates are astronomical.. Maybe it is not surprising that most men are driven by a hilarious search for “free” sex.. Yet it is a mystery; how women submissively offer this “service”; solely carry the “burden” of consequences..!!

This is how family foundations got destroyed..

This is how Millennia are increasingly turn atheist..

This is why family legislations should be enlightened..

This is why societies should be ruled by Knowledgeable Politicians.. Whom 1st decision will publicize the mass media, militarize male youth, and regulate religious authorities..!!

Why is that..?

Parenthood is far complex and elevated set of preparedness, morals and behaviors than the simple movie and TV attractions of pretty girls and handsome boys, meeting on clean bed-sheets..!! It is not the publically shown love or the attractive adolescent style of living; but realizing the scared mission to breed and sustain the human race.. and civilization..!

Since the rise of Baby-Boomers; most of married ones became ill-prepared for the mission.. Traditional schooling used to provide girls with home-making syllabuses, and boys with manly crafts.. Modern Mass Media had downgraded marriage to be intuition-based rather than epistemic one.. This had elevated the sexual component to be the core of marriage, instead of the moral contents..

Emotional divorce happens when partners are no longer sharing views of who’s who and what’s what.. A synonym of modern livelihood is the universal restructuring of rights and obligations, across all forms of living and activities.. It sounds a great humane achievement; till routs cross or clash.. The moral foundation of rights and obligations had many areas that were deliberately left blank for personal circumstances; which were unwisely filled with almost no chances for change, reform or adjust.. In today’s world, each of the married has wider private spaces and interests, so are the children..!!

Unless personal argument and disagreement are extremely tense; husbands shamelessly approach their swiftly-surrendering wives.. Universally, the traditional cultural ingredients allow no-objection from a wife; unless emotionally grown enough to say: No.. It is a fact that consensual sex has various psychic, physical and emotional benefits that make it appealing to repeat.. Despite any practical circumstance; both Men and Women are increasingly clever to seduce the other for such a moment of unique pleasure.. However, this friction of time is mysteriously enough to heal lots of the heat in matching personalities and preferences..

This is an Islamic reading on Marriage..!!

Do you believe it..?

Ethiopia’s Renaissance Dam



I’m not fan of Morsi or MB, but an intellectual opponent for stupidity and injustice.. Yet, their regime had acknowledged unable to sustain a long-historical wrong stand and policies..!!

Most people with pens and voices in Egypt has no clue about the 
history of the 1929 Nile-Treaty.. They only recall times of “Bully” Politicians and Generals, who became outdated.. The world of today is built on mutual interests, rights and obligations.. The Treaty allowed Egypt to use 58% of Nile waters for noting but been a strong colonial state.. Egyptian water monitoring stations are in Sudan and Uganda, while its diplomatic staff are securing these unfair distribution rights by all means of mightiness.. 

Apparent situations are not always righteous ones.. Everyone has the right to live and grow.. No one is responsible that Egypt had mistakenly lived on unfair justification for such long time.. It is a failure for Egyptian Politicians, elites and media.. Driving the people into global standoff..

Already Egyptian Tycoons backed by Morsi Government; are land-grabbing in Sudan, for almost 2 million acres, and lots of deals on farming, meat and dairy production and potential labors migrations..!!

The formula is simple.. Egypt will have enough for potable water and industry, yet agriculture can be done somewhere else.. It is a matter of resources and balances, to secure food and economic growth.. Agro sector is only 17% of Egypt's GDP.. Yet, finding placement for 35% workforce in farming.. This is the challenge, which Egyptian planners had always failed to resolve.. Therefore; they had always gone to the easy solution: Maintain the Nile Treaty to sustain the Agriculture sector..!
