Smile

A smile in the face can make you content if you were angry and vice versa.
Smile, it comes at no extra cost

It is R rated

Sex and the City is a movie that i watched this evening at home. It is a silly movie with quite a bit of naughty scenes. If it were not for such exposed scenaries, it would fit for teangers as well.
It is akin to Old Eygptian movies, where the actors exhibt a conspicious tendency towards exaggeration in their acting. However a phenomenal charactersitic in Eygptian movies is the fact that during the 2 hours everthing goes wrong, and all of a suddent, and towards the last few moments of the movie, things seem to turn out for the best (happy ending).
I like such twists in those movies, because i live real life moments every minute I breath and as such when i watch a movie i look for something different, and i do not want to be reminded of real life situation then.

Well, Eyptians lead the way in movies they produced in the 40's, 50's and 60's and now the Americans are catching up with a manifestation called Sex and the City.

Mystery solved


Olympic diving is one of my favorite sports activities to watch. In the past few days i was wondering why divers shower between each dive.

I check yahoo main page for two reasons (almost daily) to check on main news and to check out the finanical market. While i was doing that just now, the main featured news on the main page of http://www.yahoo.com/ was Why showers always shower? (corrrection: Why Divers always shower?) I was really excited to question something and find the answer on yahoo main page.


According to the featured article http://sports.yahoo.com/olympics/beijing/blog/fourth_place_medal/post/The-mystery-of-the-showering-divers?urn=oly,100472

"Divers shower in between each dive to keep their muscles warm after getting out of the pool. The temperature of the pool water and the air are usually different (the pool is usually around 80 degrees, with the air temperature between 68 and 72 degrees). This difference can cause muscle tightness. To combat this, divers warm up in either the showers or a hot tub."

moments of anguish

It was early this morning that i received with sorrow news about the loss of a contemporary voice whose words transcended beyond the frontiers of his homeland Palestine to the entire world.
A poet who leaves an eternal legacy of legendary master pieces that simply pierced through ears, the minds and the hearts of the masses

A great loss of an unprecedented talent that will definitely leave a vacuum so hard to be refilled.

THE ATOMIC BOMBING OF NAGASAKI August 9, 1945

At 11:02 a.m., at an altitude of 1,650 feet, Fat Man exploded over Nagasaki. The yield of the explosion was later estimated at 21 kilotons, 40 percent greater than that of the Hiroshima bomb.




Although the destruction at Nagasaki has generally received less worldwide attention than that at Hiroshima, it was extensive nonetheless. Almost everything up to half a mile from ground zero was completely destroyed, including even the earthquake-hardened concrete structures that had sometimes survived at comparable distances at Hiroshima. According to a Nagasaki Prefectural report "men and animals died almost instantly" within 1 kilometer (0.62 miles) of the point of detonation. Almost all homes within a mile and a half were destroyed, and dry, combustible materials such as paper instantly burst into flames as far away as 10,000 feet from ground zero. Of the 52,000 homes in Nagasaki, 14,000 were destroyed and 5,400 more seriously damaged. Only 12 percent of the homes escaped unscathed

The atomic bomb resulted from research intially carried out in Germany and then moved to the USA. The following is an letter written by Albert Einstine to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt urging the US government to support research in this area before the German Government leads the way in building an exteremely powerful bomb (later known as the Manhattan project).

A Car in Amman



This is the 2008 model, but when i coincidently spotted the older model yesterday evening in the street of amman, i would immensly argue and assert that it is looking as good as ever and there is little differernce (if any) i could glimps compared to a year ago. Pitete as it may look, but certainly spacious in heart. While mostly pleasent, it demonstrates unforegivingly monsterous reactions at times. . A little hickup though, do not try to out performe its natural limits, because then, you cannot foresee what you are getting yourself into,; it could simply as well let you down. Therefore, one should not compare to others, but suffice it to say; it shines out brightly in its class. In case you are wandering, I never owned it and probably never will. Obviously, because what i own , albiet classical, stands out as the ultimate of its class. Additionally, these generation appeared rather recent, at which time, intricate decisions had already been properly taken.

Verdict: Modern, stylish, attractive and fun, but fragile in handling the demanding ruggedness required in this part of the world

Business as usual

























Driving up hill was definitely a daunting task, but hell, it was well worth it
The hotel is overlooking the sea as you can see, the other side of the hotel overlooks green valleys and high mountains.
Down at the beach it feels really humid, but up here, it was really nice. The hotel is a 5 star hotel, but strangely, the service was not!!!!
The real view is breath taking; this picture has got its resolution reduced to decrease its size, but still it gives the impression.
