A lower or middle level educated person with extra ordinary experience can achieve an Expert level Certification in any field but a highly educated one will be able to obtain an Excellence Level in the field relevant to his subject in Higher Education. To be experienced in any field one has to start practical life as early as possible as said “Practice makes a man Perfect”. It is debatable issue since long that a fresh degree holder is rejected due lack of experience and an experienced person is rejected due lack of education. Naturally every individual has his own circumstances to take an early start of practical life or just keeps on getting Higher Education to become a scholar where financial benefits are secondary issue. Nature has set up a well organized system of Universe and allotted various responsibilities according to suitability and capability of its structure and characteristics on merit, but when it comes to various creatures like human, it is all disturbed due mishandling of merit. By declaring my Profile as “Expert” demands that even with lower education I must utilize my experience to suggest the coming generations that one must stick to his aim, follow the track to reach any goal within the limitations of his circumstances. Here the responsibility of Government / Non government institutions is to provide Higher Education facilities along with Vocational Training Centres for two-third population of the world to enable an early start of getting experience in the field of their interest / choice. That is the only way out to minimize unemployment and increase in quality product of Entrepreneur / skilled worker.
Why do a Free Giveaway of Your Book.
I’m in the midst of running a promotion on my book Going Under (free June 25-29). There is some debate on whether or not authors should give their work away for free. I’ve analyzed both sides of the argument and in the end, decided to go ahead. I don’t know if it’s the best way to go, but this is an experiment. In fact, marketing of any kind is an experiment.
There’s enough work that goes into writing a book, I can see why some might not think it’s a good idea. We devote financial resources as well as hours and hours of our time into writing, editing, cover design, formatting and publishing. It’s quite understandable that some authors would say I’m crazy to give it away. Here’s some background going into my decision.
I’ve been keenly watching the self-publishing revolution…

Arguments for and against the Existence of God have been proposed by philosophers, theologians, scientists, and others for thousands of years. In philosophical terms, such arguments involve primarily the disciplines of epistemology (the nature and scope of knowledge) and ontology (study of the nature of being, existence, or reality) and also the theory of value, since concepts of perfection are connected to notions of God. A wide variety of arguments exist which can be categorized as metaphysical, logical, empirical, or subjective. The existence of God is subject to lively debate in philosophy, the philosophy of religion, and popular culture.
Atheism views arguments for the existence of God as insufficient and indemonstrable, resting on faith alone. Additionally, some atheists or members of contradicting religions contend that it is possible to affirmatively disprove the existence of certain gods, such as Christianity’s Yahweh and Islam’s Allah, by their characteristics attributed, such as perfection. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).
Okay, no problem. I attended today Date: Sunday, June 14, 2015 an International Webinar held in Islamabad by Al-Mawrid. Al-Mawrid has initiated a monthly “Research in Progress” series. For the 15th session, Mr Usman Ramzi was kindly consented to present his views on the following topic:
“A Critical Study of Richard Dawkins and New Atheism in the Perspective of Philosophy”
Mr Usman Ramzi critically evaluated the ideas of Richard Dawkins and New Atheism. He focused on the history, evolution, roots and different forms of Atheism with a special reference to Dawkins. He has thorough study and firm grip about Thinkers who have provided arguments against the existence of God like Nietzsche, Sigmund Freud, Kant, Richard Dawkins and Bertrand Russell etc.
In modern culture, the question of God’s existence has been discussed by scientists such as Stephen Hawking, Francis Collins, Richard Dawkins, and John Lennox, as well as philosophers including Richard Swinburne, Alvin Plantinga, William Lane Craig, Daniel Dennett, Edward Feser, and David Bentley Hart.
As an attendee on-line I asked only one question:
Question: Was Moses a Jew, Jesus a Christian and Mohammad a Muslim, if not then why we are divided in sects?
Answer: No they were all Muslims and we should live in Unity.
- To hold a debate on Existence of God is meaningless as it has no practical purpose. Ideology in favor or against will not affect even if He exists and it is neither affecting both the categories of Humans. Yes it has psychological impact on that individual who is shaky & confused. Normally any Human expects help from Almighty (May be a figure or substance) when he is in absolute helplessness condition.
- While a debate on Existence of God has no practical implications in any society / culture, how come a debate on “A Critical Study of Richard Dawkins and New Atheism in the Perspective of Philosophy” will resolve the basic and major issue of Humanity, hence Al-Mawrid should consider a topic to unite the Humanity which will be a great service.
- From the day one the system is being run on a single law of Humanity which is in my conviction, not an opinion, that is “Might is Always Right” and will go on till Dooms Day, the reason Creator of The Universe is called “Almighty” in any ideology. Anyone who has Physical, Mental and Financial Power more than others will always rule the world.
Mr. Usman Ramzi was very patient to listening me twice even when the allocated time of the Webinar was almost elapsed and appreciated my query & comments with a commitment to work on the issue raised.
I am really thankful to him, Al-Mawrid and the team that arranged such a friendly discussion platform.
I was silent since 29th. May, when this happened, but my slogan dragged me to comment on this issue. I just want to request readers to think and decide themselves:
1. Do these types of issues reflect the net result of an image portrayed by Muslims all over the globe?
2. Is it the impact of unfortunate incidence occurred on 9/11?

I am sitting on a United airlines flight in the air 30,000ft above and I am in tears of humiliation from discrimination. The flight attendant asked me what I would like to drink and I requested a can of diet coke. She brought me a can that was open so I requested an unopened can due to hygienic reasons. She said no one has consumed from the drink, but I requested an unopened can. She responded, “Well I’m sorry I just can’t give you an unopened can so no diet coke for you.” She then brought the man sitting next to me a can of UNOPENED beer. So I asked her again why she refused to give me an UNOPENED can of diet coke. She said, “We are unauthorized to give unopened cans to people because they may use it as a WEAPON on the plane.” So I told her that she was clearly discriminating against me because she gave the man next to me an unopened can of beer. She looked at his can, quickly grabbed it and opened it and said, “it’s so you don’t use it as a weapon.” Apphauled at her behavior I asked people around me if they witnessed this discriminatory and disgusting behavior and the man sitting in an aisle across from me yelled out to me, “you Moslem, you need to shut the F** up.” I said, “what?!” He then leaned over from his seat, looked me straight in the eyes and said, “yes you know you would use it as a WEAPON so shut the f**k up.” I felt the hate in his voice and his raging eyes. I can’t help but cry on this plane because I thought people would defend me and say something. Some people just shook their heads in dismay. #IslamophobiaISREAL

While United did not operate the flight, Ms. Ahmad was our customer and we apologize to her for what occurred on the flight.
After investigating this matter, United has ensured that the flight attendant, a Shuttle America employee, will no longer serve United customers.
United does not tolerate behavior that is discriminatory – or that appears to be discriminatory – against our customers or employees.
All of United’s customer-facing employees undergo annual and recurrent customer service training, which includes lessons in cultural awareness. Customer-facing employees for Shuttle America also undergo cultural sensitivity training, and United will continue to work with all of our partners to deliver service that reflects United’s commitment to cultural awareness.
I conclude with a humble suggestion that “Training of Air Crew” should be a Policy Matter of FAA, IATA, ICAO, DOT, U.S. Govt. and other relevant authorities on the basis of United Humanity and not of Divided Humanity.
If you always feel exhausted, you’re not alone. It also turns out a big part of it could be what you’re eating — or not eating.
You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t hit snooze or experience the mid-afternoon slump every once in a while, but if you constantly feel like you’re dragging it may be time to take a closer look at your routine. If you don’t have a related health condition and are getting enough shuteye each night, you may be to blame for the constant fatigue. Here are 8 energy-zapping habits that you can change today.
- You’re eating too much sugar. While the candy jar is an obvious culprit, refined carbohydrates like white bread and rice, chips, and cereal are a major source of sugar, too. This type of simple sugar is digested quickly by the body, leading to a dip in blood sugar levels that leaves you feeling fatigued. Be sure to replace refined carbs with whole grain varieties for a lasting energy boost.
- You aren’t exercising enough. It may seem counterintuitive that exerting energy will actually increase it, but adding a workout to your daily routine will give you a short-term energy boost. Plus, regular exercise improves sleep quality, which will ultimately leave you feeling more well rested.
- You’re skipping breakfast. “Skipping breakfast can definitely contribute to low energy in the morning,” says Johannah Sakimura, MS and Everyday Health blogger. “It’s important to give your body good fuel to start the day after an extended period of fasting.” Without this fuel, your body is running on empty – leaving you famished by lunchtime and more likely to make unhealthy choices that will cause that midafternoon dip in blood sugar. “Try to combine healthy carbohydrates, like fruit, veggies, and whole grains, with a protein source, such as eggs, nuts, or dairy. The carbs give you an initial boost, and the protein helps sustain you until your next meal,” says Sakimura.
- You’re sitting too much. Not only is sitting for prolonged periods of time harmful to your health (just one hour of sitting affects your heart!), but it’s a major energy zapper as well. Standing up and moving for even a few minutes helps get your blood circulating through your body and increases the oxygen in your blood, ultimately sending more oxygen to your brain which increases alertness. If you work a desk job, try this move more plan to keep your blood pumping.
- You’re drinking too much caffeine. Whether it’s a can of soda or constant refills of your coffee mug, many of the beverages we reach for when we feel tired are packed with caffeine – a stimulant that will give you a quick jolt, but can also leave you crashing soon after if you ingest too much. Plus, if you’re drinking caffeinated beverages into the afternoon, they may start to have an effect on your sleep quality. If you’re a coffee drinker, switch to water late-morning and replace soda with seltzer for a bubbly afternoon pick-me-up without the crash.
- You’re dehydrated. We all know the importance of drinking enough water – and even mild dehydrationcan have adverse effects on your energy level, mood, and concentration. Aim for at least one glass of water per hour while sitting at your desk, and be sure to fill your bottle up even more if you’re doing strenuous activity or are outdoors in high temperatures.
- You have poor posture. A study found that slouched walking decreased energy levels while exacerbating symptoms of depression. The good news: Simply altering body posture to a more upright position instantly boosted mood and energy, while enabling participants to more easily come up with positive thoughts. So sit up straight! Set reminders on your phone or calendar throughout the day to remind yourself to check in with your posture and straighten up.
- You’re not snacking smart. If you’re running to the vending machine for a quick afternoon snack, your selection – most likely high in simple carbs and sugar – will take your energy levels in the wrong direction. Instead choose a snack that has a combo of protein and complex carbs for an energy boost that will last throughout the afternoon. Think trail mix, veggies and hummus, or peanut butter on whole wheat toast. (By Brianna Steinhilber)
