    The bygone decades of 19th century told us more of the aggressive soul of people of influence and as we know that the feudalism class, is one of the considerable classes of those people of influence especially in Iraq- countryside.
    However, the aggressive soul that we are accustomed to noticing its features among those classes is not particularly the only feature of the injustice and oppression

  2. My 2014 Reads

    Hi all

    I haven't been on in a while. I think I last mentioned we had a new pup in the family, and she has been a handful. I don't remember my other pups driving us crazy like this one. So since my wife was with her all day, I had to give up part of my evenings to releave her and stay with the dog. Evenings after work is my usual computer time, and there was no way this pooch was going to let me be.

I had come to find the demands of job and family, Baha'i community and society in general with their 60 to 80 hour weeks of nose-to-the-grindstone stuff more than I could cope with.

  5. Multitasking?: How-to?

    by , 01-29-2015 at 09:20 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    The idea of multi-tasking has been around for a few decades now, but humans still cannot do it. Humans can and do switch from one task to another smoothly and quickly, but humans cannot do more than one thing at a time with any degree of competence. The article in Wikipedia puts it as “apparent performance by an individual of handling more than one task at the same time.” It is merely “apparent, because anything done while one is doing something else has to be redone to clean out the errors. ...
