Ramadhan around the world

September 29, 2008

Symbolizing the faith of Islam, the crescent moon is seen at sunset on top of the Faisal Mosque in Islamabad, Pakistan. This year’s Ramadan extends from September 1st to the 30th. Observant Muslims participate in fasting, one of the five pillars of their faith, this entire Lunar month. Eating, drinking, smoking and sexual activity is prohibited from dawn until sunset, when the fast is broken with the evening meal called Iftar. The fasting is meant to teach a person patience, humility and sacrifice, to set aside time to ask forgiveness, practice self-restraint, and pray for guidance in the future.(AP Photo/Wally Santana)

Call someone without having to talk to them.

September 24, 2008

The possibilities are endless:

“After a long beta period, Boston-based MobileSphere launched a ’straight-to-voicemail’ service yesterday called Slydial. If you call 267-SLY-DIAL and listen to a short ad, you can then be connected to the voicemail inbox of any US mobile phone subscriber, without causing their phone to ring. Sounds kinda useful — but incredibly, MobileSphere is pitching the service as a way to avoid actually communicating with all those difficult, boring people in your life. In reply to suggestions that Slydial erodes and cheapens genuine human interaction, a MobileSphere exec says the company is just combating technology with technology, by helping people take control of whether and when to talk with their friends, family, and coworkers.”

11.2 million % inflation! How is Zimbabwe surviving?

September 20, 2008

via: http://www.rediff.com/money/2008/sep/18slde1.htm

Zimbabwe’s inflation rate has just touched a stratospheric level of 11.2 million per cent! Yes, 11.2 million per cent, the highest in the world’s history!

Compare that to the rate of inflation in India — which is hovering at the 12 per cent level and causing so much turmoil for Indians as the cost of commodities rises sharply — and perhaps you can put things in proper perspective.

And while the world and its brother-in-law shed tears as the United States slips into a recession and major stock markets across the world plummet, spare a thought for Zimbabwe where money has no value, and hunger, poverty and death are constant companions. So why is Zimbabwe facing such times?
