Can You Muslims Answer Winston Churchill?

    In His Book (The River War, first edition, Vol. II, pages 248-50) London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1899. States That:
    “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.” “Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science – the science against which it had vainly struggled – the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.”

    Control Weather Or Cause Disaster

    Natural Disasters, Now in Human’s Hand.Tired of bombarding and attacking with missiles, U.S Army is diverting their strategies to modern warfare of controlling weather with the help of high frequency radio waves. The tactic of manipulating a change in weather can help U.S Forces in provoking damaging weather against their enemies to have upper hand in Military or economy warfare.

    Weather control is basically an act of altering certain aspects of environment to produce desirable changes in weather.

    Nikola Tesla an inventor, mechanical engineer, electrical engineer and a genius who invented so many useful things that are the base overwhelming technologies today. Tesla talked about “Tesla shield” around Earth, and talked about particle beam weaponry which he called the “Death Ray” which could be used to change the weather, and could also be used to disrupt communications all over the world, during Tesla’s age these thing were considered as unintelligent, but now the U.S patents have the ring of scientist who are actually going to do what Tesla talked about.

    The projects and research based on Tesla’s theories are carried out deeply in the Alaskan bush called High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP). HAARP  existing since 1992. It is part of a new generation of sophisticated weaponry under the US Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI). Operated by the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Space Vehicles Directorate, HAARP constitutes a system and array of powerful antennas capable of creating “controlled local modifications of the ionosphere”.

    Ionosphere is a part of upper atmosphere of Earth and it influences radio propagation to distant places on Earth, so the purpose of HAARP is to analyze the ionosphere and investigate the potential for developing ionospheric enhancement technology for radio communications and surveillance purposes.

    The newly built power transmission station, consist of power transmission towers, has the capability of generating power in such a way that it is beamed up into the ionosphere in tremendous quantities.

    The title of “Weather Control”  alone tells us conclusively that scientists of at least several nations who have a history of being hostile to one another now possess scientific knowledge that can control damaging weather to the point of being able to use such weather as hostile, destructive weapons.

    Now every Natural disaster is suspicious of being artificial because of weather control, using this tactic the phenomena of Earthquake can be provoked in desired region. This phenomenon might be the most terrifying, since people cannot live without foundation. Entire city structures are based upon buildings having dependable foundations. Therefore, since the new weather control warfare envisions eliminating cities, we might expect that earthquakes would be a preferred weapon of choice.

    Changing the weather to incite Hurricanes and Tornadoes can also be used as weapon, as Wind has proven to be such a devastating force that can damage or even wipe off the desired area of enemy.

    This technology can also be used for flooding, rampaging water is a huge force that threatens entire regions of the country. Since the goal is to force farmers out of business, or to return the most fertile farmlands back to “Nature”, floods would be a most useful weapon. Flooding can also force farmers to miss an entire planting and growing season, thus reducing the amount of food available to a population. Most people think of a lack of food being caused by drought, when the reality is that flooding at the wrong time of the year can produce an equal loss of food production.

    By pouring measured energy that has been focused into certain parts of the ionosphere Drought, scientist can create all kind of storms like thunderstorms. Volcanoes and Tsunami waves can also be the outcomes of weather controlling technology.

     

     

    Mohali Cricket Ground, Turning Into Battle Field “Pak Vs India”

    Tense Moments, Grabbing both sweaty hands, making fist of them, striking it slowly and frequently with your lips, praying for the victory of your Team, O Pakistanis! Get ready for another Indo-Pak battle, this time not in Kargil or Kashmir but in a Cricket ground.

    Get ready to watch battle between two conventional rivals, Not battle of bullets and bombs but it is a battle of bat and ball. It is not a battle between Thousands of Soldiers but it is a battle between 11 Players from each side, with far above the ground expectations of their Country men.

    The schedule of ICC World cup 2011 has turned exhilarating, after the triumph of Pakistan and India in Quarter Final, resulting two historical adversaries confronting in Mohali’s Pitch.

    Pakistan booked semi-final berth by crushing West Indies by 10 wickets in first quarter final on Wednesday, while India recorded a sensational five wicket victory to oust defending champion Australia with14 balls to spare in second quarter-finals of the 10th World Cup at the Sardar Patel Stadium on Thursday.

    Team of Pakistan under the captaincy of Shahid Afridi and Indian team under captaincy of Mahindra Singh Dhoni will be confronting each other on 30th of March at Mohali India. Though many interesting and electrifying cricket matches between both the opponents, but the upcoming match has its own magnitude as it is the Semi-Final round of World Cup 2011.

    Some superstitious facts are prevalent among the natives of two countries,  one of which is “Pakistan never defeated India in any World Cup series in history”, putting aside the art of game, talent, and strategies of the Indian cricket team, this superstition is good enough to raise the confidence of Indian fans. On the other hand a superstition, that “India never defeated Pakistan at Mohali’s Cricket ground” is elevating the hope of Pakistani Cricket crazies for the victory of their team.

    Throughout World Cup 2011 series both team have given tough time to their opponents, and have played extremely well. This would be crucial match for Pakistan to gain it reputation back , was badly effected because of some distasteful situations in Past.

    Unable to play international matches at home, tainted by a spot-fixing scandal that robbed them of the services of Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir, lessened the team’s confidence. Pakistan cricket was in disarray before the World Cup, but Shahid Afridi’s men have helped to heal the wounds of nation. The way the team has performed, it shows great character and winning the World Cup would be fantastic for Pakistan cricket as it would help in restoring international cricket in the country.

    Movie Review: “Rango” 2011

    With western films seemingly on the comeback in recent years, it was only a matter of time before an animated version of the wild wild west made it to our screens and it has done so in the guise of Rango. Rango (Johnny Depp) is an eccentric chameleon with ambitions of one day becoming the thespian that he believes he is destined to be. Fate casts him a die and as with many animated films these days catapults him from within his comfort zone, accompanied by his ever trusty sidekick Mr. Timms (a plastic goldfish) into the barren and unforgiving wild… the wild west in fact. As usual Depp brings his own unique style to the character of Rango really making it his own.

    Rango meets up with many other inhabitants of the desert (20+) who are quirky and unique animals in their own right giving the movie real depth and I have to say that the visuals in this are stunning. They are some of the best out there and it really is starting to get to that point that you forget it is an animation with the scenery and hot dry climate being portrayed looking top notch. Add the gritty aforementioned critters who look like they have been worn down by the desert sands over time and it’s a hats off to the animators who have outdone their Pixar/Dreamworks rivals.

    The movies humour is great and combines lots of slapstick, good one liners and excellent facial expressions that really got me going but this I felt is traded off, if only slightly, as the movie advances so that the plot can develop further. As usual with these films there is some subtle and some not so subtle comic references for the older generations that are likely to swoop over a few younger heads. Links to old wild west films are strewn in as well with the spirit of the west and the man with no name making their traditional western appearances. In fact more so than usual I would say that the humour is based more towards an adult audience than that of a children’s one.

    Throughout the movie four singing mariachi owls accompany Rango narrating his tale a la the three mice from Babe, well not quite but you get the gist- maybe more akin to the rooster from Robin Hoodand provide another perspective that does well to break the movie up and add to the comedy of it all. The mariachi owls music and the movie score also draws you in and any movie that can play Ride of the Valkyries on a banjo and still make it sound good wins my vote! Hans Zimmer (Batman,Inception, Gladiator, Lion King to name but a few) working his musical ability once again.

    All in all Rango has managed to combine great jokes, funny characters and stunning visuals within a solid story. The combination of Depp and Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean 1,2,3) has worked well again and it seems to have broken the mould in so far as it’s a children’s animation and yet I can see the adults coming away with the bigger smiles.

     

    Love Your Heart With Fibre Rich Diet

    Consuming food items rich in fibre, like fruits, vegetables and whole-grain products, especially as a young adult, is likely to confer a lifetime of protection against heart risk, researchers say.

    A new study found that adults aged between 20 and 59 years with the highest fibre intake had a significantly lower estimated lifetime risk for heart disease compared to those with the lowest fibre intake.

    This is the first known study to show the influence of fibre consumption on the lifetime risk for cardiovascular disease.

    “It’s long been known that high-fibre diets can help people lose weight, lower cholesterol and improve hypertension,” said Donald M. Lloyd-Jones, study author and cardiologist at the Feinburg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, US.

    “The results of this study make a lot of sense because weight, cholesterol and hypertension are major determinants of your long-term risk for cardiovascular disease,” he said, according to a Feinburg statement.

    A high-fibre diet falls into the American Heart Association’s recommendation of 25 grams of dietary fibre or more a day.

    Lloyd-Jones said you should strive to get this daily fibre intake from whole foods, not processed fibre bars, supplements and drinks.

    “A processed food may be high in fibre, but it also tends to be pretty high in sodium and likely higher in calories than an apple, for example, which provides the same amount of fibre,” Lloyd-Jones said.

    Study leader Hongyan Ning examined data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, a nationally representative sample of about 11,000 adults.

    The study was presented Wednesday at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions in Atlanta.

     

    Blood Shed Boosts Oil Price

    The biggest potential losers in the still-roiling revolutions of the Middle East and North Africa are the people themselves. Many are democrats at high risk of being overwhelmed over time by new dictators and organised religious extremists. But the uncontested winners are already quite clear: those who own, sell, and bet on oil. In the last month alone, oil prices have leaped almost 10 per cent, even with only tiny dips in supply.

    While these revolutions have produced daily thunderclaps worldwide about a new democratic future for the Middle East, power structures remain largely intact. Almost every country in the region looks as if it’s marking time, waiting. So far, those who took to the streets succeeded only in ousting their unwanted masters — Hosni Mubarak in Egypt and Zine Al Abidine Ben Ali in Tunisia — and not in really changing the power status quo ante. In Yemen, the established leadership does look shaky. In Libya, where the media proclaimed the rebels as victors last week, it seems like a standoff with Col. Muammar Gaddafi.

    In Tunisia, where it all began, the revolutionaries are awaiting elections. The once banned Islamist party Al Nahda has just been legalised. In Egypt, the protesters still find themselves in the strong grip of the military. Elections are set for September, and the military, as well as the Muslim Brotherhood, can be expected to top the parliamentary polls. In Bahrain, the huge Shia majority took to the squares  — only a causeway away from the Saudi Arabian oil jackpot. To date, the revolutions have generated far more drama and hope than real change.

    The fighting in Libya has understandably monopolised attention, though its international importance is modest. Its normal output of oil sits at only one per cent of daily global consumption. But watch out: legions of neoconservatives are demanding military action against Gaddafi, though his Arab neighbours say, “stay out.”

    Israel is the biggest strategic loser. The Jewish state has relied on Arab regimes to subdue the anti-Zionist sentiments of their peoples. And Israel can’t do anything to fix its plight. Times are not at all conducive for new talks with Palestinians. The United States is also a loser, but it need not be a big one. Washington’s power depends on whether the revolutions peter out or launch new anti-American rulers. Whatever happens, Washington will confront greater anti-Americanism. Counterterrorism operations and anti-Iran diplomacy will suffer.

    Turkey will be a model for Arab nations lucky enough to democratise. Its foreign policy balances between the United States and the states of Islam and is also now somewhat anti-Israel. Internally, Turkey balances between an Islamic and a secular state. The country has internal stability and a promising economy.

    Conventional wisdom holds that Iran has won the lottery. But don’t bet on it. Iranians are Shias and Persians; the revolutionaries are mostly Sunnis and Arabs. These groups don’t particularly care for one another. Most important, Arab revolutionaries must surely despise Iranian leaders who beat and slaughtered Iran’s freedom fighters a mere two years ago. It’s quite possible that the revolutionary fervour will tire amid economic shortages and other burdens, and fade. Or the revolutions could erupt once again, forcing profound recalculations of US policy. But two things are certain: the oil barons and traders will get richer, and most people worldwide will scramble against higher oil and food prices and declining economies.

    US Court Blocks Publication Of eBooks On Google

    The web giant has scanned millions of books and made them available online via its eBooks platform.

    Google had negotiated the deal to settle a six-year-old class action suit claiming infringement of copyright.

    But the New York court said the deal would “simply go too far”, giving Google an unfair competitive advantage.

    Copyright concerns

    Under the agreement with the Authors Guild and the Association of American Publishers, Google would continue to digitise books and sell access online.

    In return, the company would pay $125m (£76.9m) in royalties every year to the copyright owners of the books being scanned.

    However, copyright concerns persisted, as the ownership of many of the works being scanned by Google could not be established, meaning many would be unable to claim the royalty payment.

    “The [amended settlement agreement] would give Google a significant advantage over competitors, rewarding it for engaging in wholesale copying of copyrighted works without permission, while releasing claims well beyond those presented in the case,” said judge Denny Chin.

    The US Department of Justice has approved the ruling and said it was the “right result.”

    It has been critical of Google’s deal, saying it would give Google exclusive rights to profit from “orphan works”, where the rights holders are unknown or cannot be found.

    Gina Talamon, a Justice Department spokeswoman, said the agreement “created concerns regarding antitrust, class certification and copyright issues.”

    The agreement is also separately being investigated by the US Department of Justice on competition and copyright grounds.

    Google’s plan

    Google responded to the ruling saying it was ‘disappointing’.

    “We’ll review the Court’s decision and consider our options,” said Google’s managing counsel, Hilary Ware.

    “Like many others, we believe this agreement has the potential to open up access to millions of books that are currently hard to find in the US today,” she added.

    “Regardless of the outcome, we’ll continue to work to make more of the world’s books discoverable online through Google Books and Google eBooks.”

    Google has already scanned some 15 million books.

     

    Alarming Faultlines

    In view of the disaster that struck Japan and alerted another 90 nations as far apart as 11,000 kilometres indicates the power of the tsunami, which, to the world, has come as a new phenomenon only after 2004. It was never really spoken of in historical terms but seems since seismic activity has been on the increase, especially over oceans, the resultant devastation from the silent roil of water speeding at 800 kilometres an hour is a very intimidating prospect in terms of natural disaster.

    In the past seven years it is clear that our ability to predict, limit the damage, save lives and ensure that sensitive installations are not constructed on unsafe coastal areas has not achieved technical breakthrough and the warnings are either too late or after the event.

    One would have imagined that technology would have been able to get us some control on the planet of what is going on under the sea but that has not happened and never is Man so helpless as when he is faced by the power 
of the surge.

    It is a sobering thought that in these circumstances most of the world is on a faultline. Whether it is the San Andreas or the New Madrid line or the South American and Northern American plates or the unstable Eurasian and Indian plates — not to mention the Australian plate — the majority of the world is in some kind of danger of the post earthquake terror from the sea. What makes it that much more hazardous is that these faults are growing and moving and forming ridges and positioning themselves in confrontational sequences. Coastal areas are not only threatened in the six continents but worse, the few hundred island nations are in greater danger and not only are they facing erosion but are now can be engulfed if they happen to be in the way of a giant wall of water.

    It seems necessary for the world to come together and work out a solution to the problem because it is pretty obvious it is not going away from the looks of it unless this is a major initiative and all the technology put into the meteorological research there will be a major price to pay.

    Nokia, Moving Towards Mobile Windows

    Work has begun on the first Nokia Oyj smartphones based on Microsoft Corp software following the partnership announced by the companies last month, Nokia Chief Executive Stephen Elop told Reuters.

    Elop was recruited last year to rescue Nokia from increasing irrelevance at the high end of the market and is under huge pressure to produce results from the partnership.

    Elop, who left a Microsoft executive post to join Nokia last September, also said he could see no good reason for the speculation that Microsoft might try to buy Nokia.

    “I’m not aware of a strategic interest that Microsoft would have in the rest of the business,” Elop said.

    “To the extent that a partnership has been formed around what they’re really interested in, then what would an acquisition bring other than a good year of anti-trust investigation, huge turmoil, delays?”

    Nokia shares extended gains to trade as much as 2.9 percent higher. By 1459 GMT, they were up 2.2 percent at 5.86 euros, against a European technology index up 0.7 percent, having been up 1.2 percent before the Reuters interview was published.

    Nokia shares have fallen almost 30 percent since the agreement with Microsoft was announced and remain not far from their more than 10-year low of 5.415 euros set earlier this week.

    On Sale

    Almost half of Nokia’s handset revenue comes from more basic mobile phones, which are popular in emerging markets. The company has struggled to establish its brand in the United States, especially since Apple Inc launched its iPhone.

    Nokia also considered partnering with Google Inc, but decided it would be too difficult to differentiate its smartphones from a multitude of other Android devices made by the likes of Samsung and HTC.

    Nokia’s chairman has said Windows-based Nokia phones will be on sale from 2012, though Elop has said he feels under pressure and would prefer to deliver one by the end of this year.

    “We’re right now, today, having people work on the first Windows Phone devices from Nokia. That work is already under way. If this was an acquisition scenario, that wouldn’t be possible,” Elop said.

    The agreement between Nokia and Microsoft still has to be finalized, something that Elop has said he expects to happen in the next couple of months.

    Elop said he had no current plans to change Nokia’s top management, after only one senior executive was dropped in his line-up announced last month. He dismissed as nonsense a German magazine report that a wider cull was likely.

    “Now what happens is accountability. If someone’s not succeeding, they need to be helped or they need to be moved along. In my context, that will absolutely be the case,” he said.

    “So there’s a team in place. It’s now a new team of my new leadership, newly minted in terms of their new roles. Now they have to perform.”

     

    Is The World Ending? According To Nostradamus

    Quatrains by Nostradamus warn of worldwide natural disasters in the year 2012, according to the History Channel’s documentary, Nostradamus 2012. Global warming is nigh.

    History Channel aired a documentary in 2009 about the predictions of famous prophet and astrologer, Michel de Nostradamus. Nostradamus 2012, a two-hour look at the prophesies of the end of the world, discusses the possibility of global natural disasters.

    Quatrains are four-line poems that Michel de Nostradamus used when writing his famous predictions for the future. The prophecies of Nostradamus were often vague and couched in colorful, ambiguous language so as to escape censorship and ire from the Christian church in the mid 1500s.

     

    Predictions of Worldwide Famine

    Nostradamus predicted drought and disaster along 48 degrees latitude around the world. His quatrains reference a lack of food, and great famine. Most of the grain belts are found at this latitude. Lack of food from the major breadbaskets of the world — largely in the United States — would result in worldwide famine. Famine is mentioned numerous times in the quatrains of Nostradamus.

     

    According to an interview of author John Hogue in the History Channel’s documentary, Nostradamus 2012, if the U.S. were to stop supplying food to the world 100 countries would be affected and 400,000 people would die in just one short year on the continent of Africa alone.

    End of the World Predictions of Supervolcanoes Erupting

    The quatrains of Nostradamus refer to eruptions of volcanoes and destruction during the end times.

    The supervolcano in Yellowstone Park has already moved into the “red zone,” according to Lawrence Joseph, author of Apocalypse 2012. Joseph also asserts that a climax of solar activity can trigger the eruption of volcanoes on earth.

    Nostradamus Prophecies of Deadly Tsunami Waves

    In 2004, 150,000 people were killed in the tsunami wave from an unusual earthquake in the Pacific Ocean. The quatrains of Nostradamus could be interpreted to have predicted this deadly wave, as it speaks of dead fish and water far inland.

    Perhaps the quatrains refer to this event that has already occurred, or perhaps another tsunami will result from a magnetic pole shift, as some scientists fear.

    Global Warming and Extreme Weather Predicted by Nostradamus

    The quatrains also refer to global warming, as Nostradamus mentions seas heating up, rising, and extreme storms. Some experts interpret his quatrains to have referred specifically to Hurricane Katrina.

    Those who believe in Nostradamus’ doomsday prophecies point to the extreme weather observed in the increasingly severe tornado seasons in the midwest of America, the increased severity of the hurricanes over the past decade, and the unusual areas of drought and flooding.

    Predictions of Magnetic Pole Shift

    Nostradamus’ quatrains allude to blackouts and cataclysmic events caused by a magnetic pole reversal of the Earth.

    In the documentary Nostradamus 2012, scientists explain that the Earth’s magnetic field has reversed in the past, and could reverse again. The Earth is currently going through a phase where the magnetic field is weakening due to the solar system’s orbit in the galaxy.

    If the magnetic poles were to reverse in the planet, according to scientists, it would trigger a major collapse of all electromagnetic fields including cell phones, and all electronics.

    Although many of Nostradamus’ predictions were filled with dire warnings of cataclysmic disasters of famine, war, extreme weather and more, he did leave a message of hope. The hope lies in mankind’s gift of free will. Nostradamus suggests that mankind can choose to slow or even halt global warming; mankind can choose to mature spiritually and prevent war, and mankind can choose to write its own fate in the Book of Life.

    Here is a complete list of authors and experts that were interviewed in the 2009 documentary, Nostradamus 2012.
