  1. Trying to study.... and failing.

    Is reading poetry instead of doing homework ( due on Sunday) of process control analysis considered failing in studying?

    Anyway, here's the poem...

    The Clod and the Pebble
    by William Blake (1757-1827)

    Love seeketh not Itself to please,
    Nor for itself hath any care;
    But for another gives its ease,
    And builds a Heaven in Hells despair.

    So sang a little Clod of Clay,
    Trodden with the cattle's feet;
  2. The road where we meet

    The road where we meet
    is a gravelly dirt path
    a simple, quiet lane;
    traveled and transitory.
    Flooded in sunlight,
    barefoot it seems
    that all roads lead here.
    Stories can all be heard,
    quietly wrapped
    in sunbathed pebbles
    and petals, and insects, too.
    "The ends of the earth"
    are open to you;
    a shimmering vision,
    it all becomes true.
  3. Poem of The Day: I many times thought.

    I Many Times Thought

    I many times thought peace had come
    When peace was far away,
    As wrecked men deem they sight the land
    When far at sea they stay.

    And struggle slacker, but to prove,
    As hopelessly as I,
    That many the fictitious shores
    Before the harbor lie.

    - Emily Dickinson
  4. Pledge: I shall give Precedence to Allah’s Guidance over Worldly Matters >Explanation

    Peace be on you.
    Life has issues and matters. Allah wants the believers to have successful life. This peaceful and successful life needs proper guidance. There is a pledge “I shall give precedence to Deen over world.” in Ahmadiyya Muslims. The word Deen means to live according to directives and pleasure of Allah through words and deeds. Thus the pledge, in easy words, means: I shall give precedence to my religion over worldly matters or I shall live life, in which my words and deeds will ...
  5. Music Induced Hearing Loss

    by , 10-23-2014 at 09:06 AM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I was reminded again today that I didn’t destroy my hearing by listening to over-amplified music. It was just a jazz trio, but they put out enough noise to cause pain. This wasn’t the first time when I have suffered from loud music, and it isn’t my fault. Musicians usually have hearing loss from loud noise. This study says that “professional musicians are almost four times more likely to suffer noise-induced hearing loss than other people.” ...
