Mental Image

I just read a breaking news headline that said “Government suing Bank of America alleging fraud against Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac” and this is the image that immediately came to mind.

Arabic Nasheed

If I ever become a boxer I’m going to have them play this song by Raghuda Al Wazzan (رغودة الوزان) with Toyor al Jannah (طويور الجنة) when I walk into the ring. In studying Arabic from home, I’ve started from the ground up which means I started with books and videos on the Arabic alphabet, […]

Malala Yousufzai and Emmit Till

I’m tired of repeating the same arguments all […]

Collective Credit and Blame

Piggybacking on this post by The Everlasting Phelps, I would like to add this. The concept that no one can claim credit because they were somehow in some form helped at some point is utterly offensive to anyone who has ever taken a risk and put in hard work to get where they are. This […]
