  1. Fight For a Dollar That's Worth Something

    by , 04-23-2015 at 05:54 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I have noticed a couple of mentions of people trying to get the minimum wage raised to $15 per hour. They are fighting for the wrong thing. What they want are jobs that pay a reasonable amount. Raising the minimum wage that much would just make the dollar lose a lot of value very quickly, so that in a few years the fifteen dollar an hour wage would be worth less that whatever the minimum wage is now. The moves that would achieve their goals more readily would be to eliminate the minimum wage and ...

  2. Dark Matter or Aether

    by , 04-15-2015 at 06:47 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I saw another article about dark matter a while ago, and it reminded me of how much like luminiferous aether (or just Aether) this dark matter is. It was assumed for a very long time that there was something in space that filled it and was a medium through which light travelled. The Lorenz Transformations that Einstein used to come up with e=mc2 were derived by Lorenz from Maxwell's electromagnetism theory at a time when it was assumed that Aether did exists. While Einstein insisted that Aether ...

    Peace be on you.

    Usually, the word success is used as translation of word ‘falah’ in the Holy Quran in (ch23:v2) and the word humble is used for ‘khashe-oon’ in (23:3)

    [23:2] Surely, success does come to the believers,

    [23:3] Who are humble in their Prayers.

    According to lexicon, both words have more meanings:

    ‘falah’ means eases, abundance, fortunate, desire fulfilled, security, permanent goodness and happiness ...
  4. Strange Election

    by , 04-12-2015 at 07:11 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    Maybe I’m fantasizing, but I think that the presidential election on 2016 will be a strange one. So far we have two announced candidates: Hillary Clinton and Ted Cruz, but they are just the beginnings. Jeb Bush may run, and there's an excellent chance that at least one and maybe two other Dems will throw their hats into the ring. There are at least a half dozen Republicans who are preparing to run. They include Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Chris Christie, Kelly Ayotte, Mike Huckabee, ...

  5. Today is a holy day

    Today is a holy day
    (as yesterday was, as tomorrow is)
    for if any day is a holy day,
    all days are holy days,
    where any land is a pure land,
    all lands are pure lands.
    So sing songs of cheer
    Throughout the year -
    For joy is wonderful,
    And song is beautiful.
    This healing verse
    Will stay the hearse,
    On a holy, holy day.
    Breathing deep, sweet sighs of relief,
    The infinite soul, ever free of grief -
