    Intellectual & Cultural development of Islamic world/universities vs. Western

    in Islam

    Examining methods of coping and what impact we can make on our own world apart from society.  Is it a reaction or choice to be isolated?


    We apply principles of individual social isolation to a comparitive blueprint of an intellectual theory by Mohammed al-Sanduk as described below:  Also, the constructs of intellectural discipline comparing East-West university thought.


    Mohammed al-Sanduk


    Human thought constitutes the basis upon which a society is built, whether the society be primitive and enveloped in totemistic thinking or at the pinnacle of a culture where scientific thought plays a pioneering role in its construction and direction. Similarly it is difficult to make a distinction between thought and society as an agent of it, since both parties mutually influence each other.



    Baruch Spinoza: pioneer of the Enlightenment and modern Biblical criticism


    From the mediaeval period to the present day Europe passed through various intellectual and social phases. These phases collectively formed the basis of the current social and intellectual situation and provided the basis for the dynamic of social development. Some of the most important phases whose echoes we still hear today are those which are termed the Age of Enlightenment (1650-1700) the Industrial Revolution (1750-1850) and the humanitarian movements. The Age of Enlightenment in Europe began around the 18th century when philosophy of rationalism initiated its role in motivating society and providing the impulse towards the strengthening of science.

    Veterans Day 2015

    in Politics

    President Obama will use his Veterans Day platform to push Congress for a broad slate of new legislation and reforms, including plans to squeeze for-profit colleges' ability to accept GI Bill benefits.
    The commander in chief is also touting progress and reforms at the Department of Veterans Affairs at a time when public confidence in the agency is still shaky, and lawmakers’ criticism of operations continues to rise.But White House officials said progress on a number of veterans priorities has been steady and laudable, including a dramatic reduction in the benefits claims backlog in recent years and improved aid for homeless veterans.
    On Wednesday, Virginia officials will announce they will be the first state to end veterans homelessness, just a few weeks after Connecticut became the first state to end chronic homelessness within its borders.MilitaryTimes

    WHAT SOME STATES ARE DOING ABOUT OLD RAPE KITS

    in Current Events

    RAPE KITS BACKLOGGED ON SHELVES, RAPISTS FREE AS BIRDS. WHO’S DOING SOMETHING?


     


    We've all heard about the backlog of rape kits at crime facilities and police labs all across the country, and all the information locked in those kits that could be used to prosecute rapists and prevent them from raping again. The good news is that some states are actually tackling that backlog and making headway in those DNA tests - AND finding a lot of criminals. The bad news – huge backlogs still exist; it takes money to process this evidence; and some states are actually charging victims for processing and investigating via rape kits.


     


    Erika Teschke, Founder of RapeKitWA.org, started out as your everyday citizen until she read about the nationwide issue with untested rape kits. Since then she has talked with leaders at all levels of the rape kit chain of custody in Wa State and with national organizations such as the Joyful Heart Foundation’s End The Backlog in order to help bring victim centered rape kit reform to her home state.


    RapeKitWA. org began as an educational tool and has morphed into a community based grassroots lobbying effort that helped to both educate the public about rape kits and steer legislation through the WA State Legislature.

    A Better Person As President Is On Blog Talk Radio At 5:30pm - Curtis Clinton

    in Elections

    The Title says it. Why? It makes sense. I come from your place, or very close to it, Even if we do not agree completely, we are closer than the others. I am not campaigning for your money, am not a Politician, will be among the best smart Commander-In-Chiefs, even protecting our military men and women. Your day to day is closer to ours and we live it with nearly similar DNA: Daily Numerous Adversities; Daily Numerous Ailments; Daily Numerous Aspirations. I know an unknown person has no chance to be seen by you. I know that its something stupid to do this. It may even look more than stupid. But it’s not that stupid when you consider all the stupid things that are going on right now or that have just happened. Please see me in a better smart light. I say things that you may not like or want to hear. But they are said for our own good. They need to be said and brought to light and right. There are some well known people running for President. I am not one of them. I am one among us, if you can understand that in all its fullness. It is surmised that when you reach the White House, things change you. Except for becoming better, I will not change the good, right, smart within me or what must and should be done. I want much better for all, even you; our cohabitant animals; our earth. The White House belongs to you, with a person of the people, ordinary if necessary and not to a Political Party. If you see it that way, could you and will you put together 120,000,000 Write-In Ballots for a Presidency being for us, with just one of us in there seeing to a better United States and for Americans of all blood types of O's, A's, B's and AB's. If that many are cast, we will not have a divided country or Congress. One willing caring for all doing person can start a better world. You can begin with such a President. This idea is for you, thanks, bwell, c2it, i am Curt Clinton, I am call’d c2.

    Hard Starboard Radio: Back, But Writing

    in Politics Conservative

    Since returning from my weekend sojourn twenty-three hours ago, I've been deluged under an explosive backlog of blog-fodder at politicalpistachio.com as well as being conscripted out of the blue to be Intern Missius's used car salesman.  So while I dig out and get caught up (only to be buried by the next wave of these "interesting times"), it's in to the Wayback Machine y'all go for a two year backwards temporal jaunt through the miracle of digital audio.


    Don't worry, the quantum entanglement is only one-way, although rewriting all the history since November 2006 doesn't sound like such a bad idea.
