  1. First I like to thank Sheffield Forum for the help in making an idea into a reality. Towards the creation and setting up of The Arabic Social and Cultural Club, I am pleased to say we had our first meeting three weeks ago, and our second which was 2 days ago proved to be effective, productive and useful. The Goal of the club is to promote awareness and understanding of everything Arabic. The club is neither political nor religious. It is strictly social and civil. Whatever the politics, or the religion, or indeed the country of origin, the Arabic Social and Cultural Club welcomes every one! Members may be from Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, Yemen, Sunni and Shia, Arab and non-Arab. The Arabic Social and Cultural Club covers various interests, activities and subjects such as - customs and traditions - social issues - language - history - food - picnics, travel, etc - issues related to employment - music & dancing - architecture - costumes and fashion - social concerns, beliefs and values, attitudes and motives - hobbies and sport - ideas and suggestions will be encouraged and warmly received Please feel free if you have any questions, if you like to join the fun you will be more than welcome. Thanks again to SF!
  2. You definitely can stay …. you are sooo good in asking the obvious
  3. Those with no skills are unwelcome here … so what skills do you have?
  4. It is actually less than 50 % W C So it isn’t .. I read more than 10 books about W C … including the latest by B J … I find him talented and strange … and still not sure about him as an individual
  5. on business … personal … private … public … hobbies ... interests ... you name it, and you will be warmly welcomed! :): Now, hit the keyboard :confused:
  6. As nationalism can be more powerful than bread … so can anything driven and powered by passion and belief ………. I can actually see Jeremy Corbyn as a powerful world leader … If you have evidence pointing to the opposite, bring!!
  7. Dear Tony Blair, R E L A X You say if Jeremy Corbyn becomes leader the Labour party won’t just face defeat but annihilation. If someone who 3 months ago was almost unknown can cause such damage .. can you really … …. listen; can you really blame an insect if her success contributed to the burial of a confused lion? (( Paranoia is a thought process believed to be heavily influenced by anxiety or fear, often to the point of irrationality and delusion. Paranoid thinking typically includes persecutory beliefs, or beliefs of conspiracy concerning a perceived threat towards oneself (e.g. "Everyone is out to get me"). Wiki ))
  8. I am neutral and agree with 70% of what Anna B says. I am ready to change my mind when convinced.
  9. On civil wars and economic disaster 3 minute video http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/video/2015/aug/12/paul-mason-capitalism-failing-time-to-panic-video The neoliberalist capitalist model has resulted in civil wars and economic disaster, and it’s only going to get worse. Unless, Paul Mason argues, we take advantage of the technological revolution we are living through and create a postcapitalist sharing society. If we let prices fall and delink work from wages, we can save the world from disaster ... I personally think we are - the world - is heading towards something nasty … the whole thing just doesn’t balance …. like a boat meant for 6 people … my eyes can 60 on it … waiting for a little gentle push from unfriendly unexpected wave ....... that’s all it needs … to start running nowhere
  10. I think you are right … , perhaps the internet nowadays is making the difference. Give his/ her name to uncle Google and you get served every fact, rumour and whisper free of charge Try and Google: How many politicians resigned because of the internet
  11. Actually I had a great day today! I had a meeting with someone who might become so useful ….., I am self-employed and it is in my blood that my eyes and ears are always open for something new to explore … that meeting which actually came by accident went so well that a number of serious emails have already been sent to different parts of the jigsaw … I am happy today and consider myself extremely lucky … 80% luck, 20 % effort. Plus another interesting lesson I learned. 2 weeks ago I got these 2 potential clients … both asked and requested something that I considered odd and impractical … but they asked and deserved being treated as good customers …, and so I did. But soon after they individually and separately realised the way they placed their orders exposed their weakness, which was: they did not do their homework before placing their orders. After some initial struggle, all went better than good ! One I am certain would unlikely contact me again … the other is more relaxed about his error and could become a regular customer
  12. Follow this: - You have a partner … nothing strange there, is there? - You may have kids …. normal I guess - you work somewhere called X .. your future depends on the Boss B … nothing odd so far - the children go to school S .. they seem happy and you are pretty satisfied … the head teacher HD is an ok guy … nothing unusual - Have you thought about if your partner is in fact a communist? - or if your Boss B is actually an atheist? - or if the head teacher HD is seriously from a working class background? What I am trying to say is the observation that when it comes to the daily issues that matter to everyone of us, we don’t really care beyond what we consider important and paramount ….. side issues become irrelevant with no effect to our decision making process … if this is the case then why do we bother ourselves with points and labels such as - and there are hundreds - he is liberal .. no, very religious .. a unionist .. Who c a r e s What is the point? Why are you bringing to important issues something irrelevant ... actually a distraction why don't you focus a bit? Please explain
