Après la réalisation de la phase n ° 1 des blogs pratiques de Seleani.com, c’est le temps de décision de passer à l’étape suivant à but non lucratif que nous allons travailler sur le monde de l’informatique sociale et volontaire, sans aucune publicité commerciale dans un monde où les gens sont contrôlés par le besoin croissant de survie. Dans chaque génération, il aura toujours des gens au fond de la foule qui seront des réveilleurs de la vérité. Ce concept de l’individualisme nous pousse à trouver un moyen de sortie sur ce chaos et confusion qui nous entourent, en ce temps-ci, en ce moment-ci, au nom de la liberté d’esprit.

After achieving the phase #1 of practical blogging on Seleani.com, it is the decision time to move into the direction of Non-Profit Portal that we will work on global voluntary social computing, without any commercial advertisement to this tough World where people are mind-controlled by growing need of surviving. In every generation there will be risen ones above the crowd to reveal the truth of our ages. This individualism concept drives us to come up with a way out of the chaos and confusion that surrounds us; at this moment, in this time, on the name of freedom. Read the rest of this entry
There are thousands of military facilities around the world that defy conventional attack. Caves in Afghanistan burrow into mountainsides, and immense concrete bunkers lie buried deep in the sand in Iraq. These hardened facilities house command centers, ammunition depots and research labs that are either of strategic importance or vital to waging war. Because they are underground, they are hard to find and extremely difficult to strike. Read the rest of this entry
The photo, which the 20-year-old former student first posted on herblog, shows her naked apart from a pair of thigh-high stockings and some red patent leather shoes.
Her actions have received global media coverage and provoked outrage in Egypt, a conservative Muslim country where most women wear the veil. Many liberals fear that Elmahdy’s actions will hurt their prospects in the parliamentary election next week.
Aliaa Magda Elmahdy
Elmahdy describes herself as an atheist. She has been living for the past five months with her boyfriend, bloggerKareem Amer, who, in 2006 was sentenced to four years in a maximum security prison for criticizing Islam and defaming former president Hosni Mubarak.
Here she talks exclusively to CNN in Cairo about why she posed nude.
CNN: Why did you post a photo of yourself nude photo on Twitter, and why the red high heels and black stockings?
Elmahdy: After my photo was removed from Facebook, a male friend of mine asked me if he may post it on Twitter. I accepted because I am not shy of being a woman in a society where women are nothing but sex objects harassed on a daily basis by men who know nothing about sex or the importance of a woman.
The photo is an expression of my being and I see the human body as the best artistic representation of that. I took the photo myself using a timer on my personal camera. The powerful colors black and red inspire me.
CNN: Who is Aliaa Elmahdy inside the body portrayed in the nude photo?
Elmahdy: I like being different. I love life, art, photography and expressing my thoughts through writing more than anything. That is why I studied media and hope to take it further to the TV world too so I can expose the truth behind the lies we endure everyday in this world. I don’t believe that we must have children only through marriage. It’s all about love.
CNN: How have your Egyptian Muslim parents reacted? How do they feel about you living with your boyfriend unmarried?
Elmahdy: I last spoke to them 24 days back. They want to support me and get closer, especially after the photo was released, but they accuse Kareem of manipulating me. He has been my support system and has passed along their text messages to me. I dropped out of AUC (The American University in Cairo where she was a media student) months back after (my parents) attempted to control my life by threatening not to pay the fees.
CNN: The press has labeled you a revolutionary but you were not in Tahrir Square during the 18 days of the revolution in February this year. Is there a political element to you posing nude?
Aliaa Magda Elmahdy
Elmahdy: I was never into politics. I first joined the protests on May 27th because I felt the need to participate and decided I might be able to change the future of Egypt and refused to remain silent. I made it clear that I was not part of April 6th Movement (an Egyptian political group that came to prominence during the revolution) after the rumors were spread by remnants of Mubarak’s National Democratic Party who wanted to capitalize on the reaction to the photo.
What shocked me is April 6th’s statement clarifying that Aliaa Magda Elmahdy is not part of their organization and how they don’t accept “atheism.” Where is the democracy and liberalism they preach to the world? They only feed what the public wants to hear for their political ambitions.
CNN: What do you think about the forced virginity testsperformed by the Egyptian military on more than a dozen girls arrested in Tahrir Square?
Elmahdy: I consider this rape. Those men in the military who conducted these tests should be punished for allowing this to happen without the consent of the girls in the first place. Instead, the girls walk around feeling the shame and most of them are forced to remain silent.
CNN: Do you practice safe sex in your sexual revolution?
Elmahdy: Most Egyptians are secretive about sex because they are brought up thinking sex is something bad and dirty and there is no mention of it in schools. Sex to the majority is simply a man using a woman with no communication between them and children are just part of an equation. To me, sex is an expression of respect, a passion for love that culminates into sex to please both sides.
I do practice safe sex but I don’t take pills because I am against abortion. I enjoyed losing my virginity at the age of 18 with a man I loved who was 40 years older than me. Kareem Amer is the second man and the love of my life. The saying suits us: “Birds of the same feather flock together”
Aliaa Magda Elmahdy
CNN: How do you see women in the “New Egypt” and will you leave the country if the ongoing revolution fails?
Elmahdy: I am not positive at all unless a social revolution erupts. Women under Islam will always be objects to use at home. The (sexism) against women in Egypt is unreal, but I am not going anywhere and will battle it ’til the end. Many women wear the veil just to escape the harassment and be able to walk the streets. I hate how society labels gays and lesbians as abnormal people. Different is not abnormal!
CNN: What are your future plans with Kareem and will you find it hard to deal with your new notoriety?
Elmahdy: I have discovered who my real friends are, and I have Kareem who loves me passionately. He works as a media monitor and I am currently looking for a job. I embrace the simple things in life and I am a vegetarian … I am a believer of every word I say and I am willing to live in danger under the many threats I receive in order to obtain the real freedom all Egyptian are fighting and dying for daily.
Working from home may lead to burnout or exhaustion, especially if a person has issues balancing the demands of a job with a family, according to an analysis in the Journal of Business Psychology.
Although the idea of “teleworking” may conjure up images of sitting in your pajamas with coffee in hand, research suggests it’s a difficult balancing act for people struggling to meet the demands of a job and family.
The study’s author, Timothy Golden, adds that telework isn’t just working from home during traditional hours; it’s also plugging away at tasks during the evening and weekends, too. In a way, non-traditional telework puts people in a place where their personal time may be overrun by their jobs.
By surveying 316 people who worked traditional hours for a large computer company, Golden asked participants to answer whether they agree with certain statements, including “Due to all the pressures at work, sometimes when I am home I am too stressed to do the things I enjoy” and “Because I am often stressed from family responsibilities, I have a hard time concentrating on my work.”
Most respondents were male, and 88 percent had children. He also measured peoples’ levels of work exhaustion.
He found that respondents with higher time and strain-based conflicts between work and family also showed higher rates of exhaustion from teleworking. Previous studies showed that these types of conflict were physically and emotionally draining, which affect people’s abilities to cope with feeling overwhelmed. As a result, people experience burnout and do not perform their jobs as well — or they may even be calling in sick more often.
Teleworkers constantly being reminded of their role at home could be a part of the problem, Golden told MSNBC.
Golden thinks managers should look more closely at their telework programs to ensure employees’ work environments aren’t negatively affecting their mental health. Telework programs can be beneficial if done right, though.
Many people reap the benefits of not commuting as well as having a space for work they feel comfortable in, Golden writes. Overall, it’s key to keep work and family separate from each other.

Hunting Aliens continues its course, Enthusiasm about finding their worlds nestled inside other stars’ habitable zones is so strong that in 2008 a radio message was beamed to a planet known to exist in the habitable zone of the red dwarf star Gliese 581, located 20 light-years away. The signal contains 501 greetings that were selected through a competition on a social networking site. Read the rest of this entry
The Barbadian beauty was recently linked to Dudley O’Shaughnessy after he appeared in her We Found Love promo.
However, Rihanna taped an appearance for Monday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and cleared up speculation about her love life.
‘I’m not dating anyone right now. I’m not dating at all,’ she confirmed. ‘I’m not necessarily happy being single. It’s not really that cool.
‘I do put a lot into my job – most of my time if not all of it. It definitely affects my personal life. My personal life is pretty much non-existent, which is not good, not for the long run. Not for me, not for ‘Her’,’ she said, pointing between her legs.
‘It’s not fun.’
Rihanna described her perfect man. The songstress would love a beau who takes on the traditional masculine role.
‘I like men that are more aggressive, but mysterious, but I like a man to be very sure,’ she explained.
‘I like them to be sure of themselves and know that you’re the man. I’m the lady and the only way for us to make this work is for us to play our roles. You know, I can’t really be the man for you. I don’t want to have to be. I’m the man at work all the time.’
Rihanna admitted that her lack of romance encourages her to use the internet for stimulation. The stunning star relies on her Twitter fans to keep her entertained.
‘That’s why I stay on Twitter a lot. So I can conversate with my fans – because I don’t get any booty calls,’ she added.
