The Forgotten Behaviors

August 27th, 2010 · No Comments

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
The amount of spiritedness in discussion today is worrying.  While it’s likely nothing new, the speed at which information can travel causes more discourse then dialogue.  This is more worrying when one looks at the history of rhetoric and what groups/people provided later generations with a solid framework for rhetoric.
Let’s start with [...]

Idle Capacity

June 14th, 2010 · No Comments

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
I’ve  been fortunate to travel quite a bit in the last few years, visiting places in Europe, the Middle East and the South Pacific.  One thing I’ve always looked for is the how the “capacity” of said place is, referring specifically to things that drive some type of economic benefit for the [...]

The impovershied

March 14th, 2010 · No Comments

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
Living in a developed country offers many things not available in underdeveloped countries.  Impoverished people in developed countries often struggle for supplemental comfort such as shelter from the elements, clean clothes, comfortable sleep area, etc..   While the impoverished in underdeveloped countries struggle for more basic items for survival such as basic nutrition, [...]

Life is not…

February 28th, 2009 · No Comments

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
I’m in a constant state of awe seeing how people enter these elaborate debates across all different mediums on the internet.  Due to the fear of bring branded non-pc, anti-Semitic, a fear monger, etc. people have turned to the anonymity of the internet.  This anonymity offers a shield where anyone (or everyone [...]

The Power of Language

January 17th, 2009 · No Comments

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
I’m always amazed at the power of language and how certain words have the ability to convey certain messages.  Part of this stems from being bilingual, more so when I find words that can not be adequately translated between two languages.  The other part is from people who, for whatever reason, seem [...]

Marriage is…

January 1st, 2009 · No Comments

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
I recently attended a lecture about marriage at a convention.  The convention covered a wide variety of issues, but all the sessions by this particular speaker were about marriage.  The speaker was trying to provide a reference to what marriage means.  He went on with all the things people say…
Some of the [...]

The Genders

October 10th, 2008 · No Comments

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

“Women totally dominate men of intellect and possessors of hearts.
But ignorant men dominate women, for they are shackled by an animal ferocity.
They have no kindness, gentleness or love, since animality dominates their nature.
Love and kindness are human attributes; anger and sensuality belong to the animals.
” -Rumi

The above quote strikes as one of [...]

The Art of Begging

September 23rd, 2008 · No Comments

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

I was in NYC the week before Christmas, 2007 for training.  One of the most interesting aspects of the big cities are the types of beggars.  The commons ones are as follows:

The drunk: trying to fill his last empty cup with some change to score another drink
The musician: who is sometimes quite [...]

Net Present Value

October 23rd, 2007 · 1 Comment

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
I helped with interviews on campus this past Friday. Since it was my first time helping I doubled up with someone and took most of the notes while the other person asked all the questions. I took advantage of the opportunity to look for the the distinctive behaviors that separate [...]

Does history matter?

October 14th, 2007 · No Comments

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
Something interesting to note (at least in my mind):
One of the most adopted concepts people love today is being a relativist, in more than one shape or form. A big one is the moral relativists, where whatever is acceptable today is acceptable, regardless of what history has told us. Or [...]
