2012-06-01 20:35:00
It is the trial of the century in Egypt that all Egyptians and the whole world will watch tomorrow with a lot of anticipation. The trial will be transferred on air since early morning. Already the Egyptian TV may collect a fortune tomorrow for allowing the other channels to transfer the broadcast on air just like in football match !! There are lots of anticipations as well lots of fears.There are not high hopes though because in both cases. Technically tomorrow there will be an army  from armed forces and central security forces outside the police academy. There is great fear from violent clashes in case that Mubarak is acquitted. The families of the martyrs fear that there will be clashes tomorrow. The Mubarak supporters say that they will respect the court?s final verdict.

From "Finish Line" To "Shut The Mother F-er Down": OTB Employees Struggle T
2012-05-31 16:33:00
If one was to ask what happened on December 7, 2010 and 2011, most folks would reference the 69th & 70th-year anniversaries of Pearl Harbor. Few people would know or care that New York's Off-Track Betting Office doors were shuttered that first year, depriving thousands of workers from earned health benefits. And on its anniversary date the following year, it marked the day that OTB worker Patti McCole entered the hospital for brain cancer.
It is party time people !!
2012-05-30 22:07:00
And Amr Khaled got news for you : He will found a political party called ?Egypt Future? that it is not actually political party but rather an independent moderate social development for all Egyptians party that will work in the governorates to solve the social and economic problems there. ?I think Life Makers movement which he heads does this already !!? Amr Khaled : I am going to have a party Despite being an Islamist preacher , Khaled makes it clear that the party is open for all Egyptians with no political or ideological affiliation.  Speaking seriously I wonder why Khaled waited all those months to declare this step when he had enough members in ?Life Makers? movement ready to join that Social Development party. I am not against the idea but I am just wondering why he waited all that time and why suddenly politics seem to be interesting after he expressed his refusal to engage in politics in the past months !! It is not a bad thing to have political ambition at all. I...
#Houlah : This will not stop the killing "Updated"
2012-05-30 13:32:00
Girls from Al Houlah , I wonder if they were alive I hope they are  Several countries from around the globe have expelled the Syrian ambassadors as an official reaction yesterday after the terrible Al Houlah massacre . These countries are : France , Germany, Belgium , Switzerland , Spain ,Netherlands, Portugal , Italy, Australia , Bulgaria , Canada and New Zealand  Now Japan joined the countries that have expelled the Syrian ambassador for Al Houlah massacre !! France was first followed by Germany and it was matter of hours other EU and foreign countries followed that step that is considered an important international escalation. The White House issued this statement : Despite every option is currently on the table , the US direct military intervention would cause more chaos in the country. Hilary Clinton , the secretary of state also issued a statement regarding the massacre. The US will not send its troops except after the scene is ready for the cavalry as at the sam...
What an interesting timing to publish these photos !!
2012-05-30 12:40:00
Al Watan Newspaper published today a supplement its journalists believe to be the scoop of the year : The diaries of Mubarak in jail !! Mubarak standing and his son Alaa The report shows exclusive photos of Mubarak standing in his trial as well his son Alaa speaking to someone smiling and Mubarak on bed whereas his son Gamal besides him in court. The report also includes info from unknown sources about what Mubarak used to do in the past year and half. Of course if you want my opinion , I think it was better to publish the photos only because seriously no one buys these tales from unknown sources about what Mubarak did that or this or Mubarak said this or that which nobody buys anymore !! Here are some examples : Mubarak believes that all the presidential candidates fighting for the presidential posts are idiots except Ahmed Shafik !! Mubarak was visited by the Prince of Kuwait and Sultan of Oman !! ?It was denied by Kuwaiti embassy in Cairo ? Mubarak thinks SCAF is so weak a...

Shafik : The Egyptians are obedient
2012-05-29 13:23:00
I will not comment on what happened last night because I do not approve on storming private properties at all, the right of protesting can not be disputed and actually observers have warned of instability in Egypt if Shafik is elected as a president. Of course these observers do not know that Shafik is ready for this and got a plan for any instability : Execution style in one month !! New York Times has published a report about what he has said in the American Chamber in Cairo and it is quite interesting perspective on his future policies if he is elected as a president : He will restore order in the country in a month using executions !! He will have clash soon or later with the Islamists in the country as he believes they have got armed militias and they want to turn the country in to Lebanon Contrary to what the world thinks the Egyptian people obedient !!!!!!! Obedient !! It is worth to mention that many of the American Chamber members from Egyptian businessmen were members...
Reality Show Satyamev Jayate Proves The Worth Of Social Media Campaigns
2012-05-29 13:15:00
A carefully crafted online digital campaign has proven to be a hit for Satyamev Jayate (Aamir Khan’s TV Series) even before it went on air. What could be the reason for the show’s online popularity? With an active population on the web it is easier to see why any media campaign would be stronger online as it was offline.  Hence, Satyamev Jayate’s team attempted to get people talking about the show on social media portals. With these platforms offering an easier way to voice out opinions, the show’s theme quickly caught the attention of many people. A lot of social issues have made an impact through the Social media. Quite some time back, Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare and his team had realized the potential of the Internet to spread his message & intentions. Being online most of the time, it was not a surprise that teenagers & young adults form the largest contributing members to the campaigns. Apart from creating a stir, the show’s makers also r...

Is Buffy, The Mobile Slayer, Facebook's Ace In The Hole?
2012-05-28 15:34:00
Being left behind on the mobile landscape has motivated countless bloggers and techie prognosticators to cyberventilate as to FB's future. Based on an 11th hour stock devaluation by the company themselves (see previous post, "Facebook's IPO Morality Tale?"), coupled with the claim the company can't survive in the public sphere relying solely on ad revenues, Zuck has ridden a roller-coaster of criticism in one week's time that has cast yet another shadow over the world's largest social network.

2012-05-26 13:47:00
I said it before whenever all the whole world is watching Egypt , Bashar El Assad?s troops commit horrible massacre in Syria either in Homs or Hama. Unfortunately this time in Homs , the alleged armed Shabiha stormed civilians? houses in the city of Houla slaughtering tens of women and children including toddlers and babies today. Here is a clip allegedly filmed in Houla in the past 24 hours showing the bodies of those civilians that were killed , it is extremely graphic. ?+18? Homs : Tens killed in Houla Here is another terrible video showing the bodies of nearly 26 Syrian child killed in the most horrible way ever. According to the people there El Assad Shabiha "militant thugs" did that horrible massacre where nearly 50 child have been slaughtered along with their moms.  I just can't imagine the amount of hate , the one who did this , the one who did this is a psychopath not even a human at all.

Live Blogging : Egypt Chooses its president ?Day 2? #egyelections
2012-05-24 23:18:00
8:54 AM CLT The polling stations have opened their doors for voters from almost an hour ago. The turnout is noticeably higher compared to yesterday in this time from my own observation. The Qomia language school got a long women?s queue while a mixed polling station at Technical journalism institute in Boulaq got medium size queues. It is worth to mention that it is an official day off in the public sector and many private sector companies gave its employees a day off in order to vote. There are long queues in Maadi. The streets are empty and many shops closed their doors. The turnout in the governorates is not high according to the reports. May be we are speaking about early morning so things may change like what happened yesterday. Now something interesting took place yesterday when a group of youth including a dear friend who made a small protest in the heart of Mohendessin yesterday , in the famous Mostafa Mahmoud calling citizens to elect ?Batman" as president of Egypt. ...
Facebook's IPO Morality Tale: If The Green Shoes Fit, Wear Them?
2012-05-23 19:05:00
Facebook's reversal of fortunes in such a short span of time has played out almost like a modern-day morality tale. The fall-out of the social network post-IPO, after such an enthusiastic build-up was telling. While it lined the pockets of some (namely investment bankers), it deprived the 99 Percenters (or Dumb F*cks as Zuckerberg so adroitly labeled them back in 2004) full-disclosure, resulting in a subsequent short-fall on their FB investment.

Splattering Media Splatters
2012-05-21 01:30:00
Media Splatters attempts take to take down Roger L. Simon, from PJ Tattler: The Palace Guards over at MediaMatters are taking nasty swipes at me this morning — “Right-Wing Media’s Latest Embarrassment: Obama Lied About Birthplace to Get Ahead.“ I suppose that’s to be expected when Rush Limbaugh quotes your article (“The Mystery of the Kenyan Birth“) on his show. What’s amusing is that the MM crew takes at face value the assertion by Obama’s agents that the “born in Kenya” statement at the top of Barack’s biography was just a 1991 mistake that for some reason went unnoticed until 2007, although numerous other entries in the same pamphlet had been updated. (The literary agency, Acton & Dystel, has explained that the “born in Kenya” line “was nothing more than a fact checking error.”) Hello?  Are you kidding?  In my informal poll of several authors of numerous books in the last day or two, not a single one of them had ever heard of such a thing ...

Pinterest Is The New Spamming Media: McAfee
2012-05-16 09:51:00
The new social networking website Pinterest is being rapidly used by spammers to launch mass-spamming campaigns, reports McAfee Inc. McAfee fears that given the rapid growth of Pinterest among the users have offered people with malicious intents to launch campaigns that are meant to do all sorts of nefarious activities. What’s the threat? McAfee has uncovered complete toolkits that allow generating & deployment of a new spam campaign in a very simplistic manner. In a matter of minutes, the software has the ability to “mass-like” pins, add an account creator, mass-follow people, automate fake commenting activity, and more. How does it spread? In the world of social networking, people themselves are unwittingly responsible for spreading spam. In the earlier days, spammers had to send out mass-mailers that contained viruses or malware, but in the new age they just have to bundle such applications in innocent looking & supposedly interesting information.

How Many "Dumb F*cks" Will Rock Facebook's IPO Like It's 1999?
2012-05-08 21:26:00
The term "Dumb F*cks" has hung over Mark Zuckerberg like a dark cloud over the course of the last 8 years. Not because his nickname "Zuck" rhymes with the expletive, but because the CEO of today's largest social network derided his early FB users as such. In 2004, when first percolating the idea of FB in a Harvard dorm room and asked how he attracted so many followers so quickly, he off-handedly responded they were following him blindly, like "Dumb F*cks."
