Why are they powerful? Why are Muslims powerless?

Here’s another reason. We have lost the capacity to produce knowledge.

o  In the entire Muslim World (57 Muslim Countries) there are only 500 universities.
o  In USA alone, 5,758 universities
o  In India alone, 8,407 universities
o  Not one university in the entire Islamic World features in the Top 500 Ranking Universities of the World
o  Literacy in the Christian World  90%
o  Literacy in the Muslim World     40%
o  15 Christian majority-countries, literacy rate 100%
o  Muslim majority – countries ,       None
o  98% in Christian countries completed primary
o  Only 50% in Muslim countries completed primary.
o  40% in Christian countries attended university
o  In Muslim countries a dismal 2% attended.
o  Muslim majority countries have 230 scientists per one million Muslims
o  The USA has 5000 per million
o  The Christian world 1000 technicians per million.
o  Entire Arab World only 50 technicians per million.
o  Muslim World spends on research/development 0.2% of GDP
o  Christian World spends 5 % of GDP

Conclusion:

o  The Muslim World lacks the capacity to produce knowledge Another way of testing the degree of knowledge is the degree of diffusing knowledge.
o  Pakistan 23 daily newspapers per 1000 citizens
o  Singapore 460 per 1000 citizens
o  In UK book titles per million is 2000
o  In Egypt book titles per million is only 17
o  Muslim World is failing to diffuse knowledge Applying Knowledge is another such test.

o  Exports of high tech products from   Pakistan is 0.9% of its exports
o  In Saudi Arabia is 0.2%
o  Kuwait , Morocco and Algeria 0.3%
o  Singapore alone is 68%
o  Muslim World is failing to apply knowledge

What do you conclude? No need to tell. The figures are speaking themselves very loudly. We are unable to listen.

ADVICE:

Please educate yourself and your children. Always promote education, don’t compromise on it, don’t ignore your children’s slightest misguidance from education (and please, for Allah’s Sake, don’t use your personal contacts or sources to promote your children in their education. If they fail, let them, and make them learn to pass. If they can’t do it now, they can’t ever).
We are the worlds biggest and strongest nation, all we need is to identify and explore our own selves. Our victory is with our knowledge, our creativity, our literacy…


….Wake up… It’s not too late!

Ubuntu 8.04 “Hardy Heron” beta – making life easier for Windows users

Let’s face it, deciding to nuke your existing operating system installation and replace it with a completely different OS isn’t the sort of task that you should approach lightly.  One of the barriers to Linux adoption is the fact that many people find the idea of wiping their Windows installation a daunting thing.  Sure, the widespread adoption of the Live CD with allows users to boot into a working Linux environment has made taking a Linux distro for a test drive easier, but a Live CD experience falls far short of what you can expect from an installed Linux experience.

Ubuntu 8.04 betaUbuntu 8.04 “Hardy Heron” beta has made Linux adoption much easier by making it easy for Windows users to install Ubuntu onto their PCs without affecting their Windows installation.

Two new features added to Ubuntu 8.04 are umenu and Wubi and these additions have significantly lowered the first rung onto the Linux ladder by making it a snap to install Ubuntu 8.04 onto a Windows system.  All you need is:

  • A Windows PC
  • At least 4GB of free space
  • Ubuntu 8.04 on CD or an ISO mounted in Windows

Here’s how to install Ubuntu 8.04 alongside Windows.

First, pop the CD into the drive (or mount the .ISO file).

If you have autoplay enabled then the umenu loader is fired up automatically (if not, go to the root of the CD and run umenu.exe).  This presents you with three options

Installing Ubuntu 8.04 alongside Windows

  • Demo and full install
  • Install inside Windows
  • Learn more

Clicking on Install inside Windows launches the Wubi installer.

The Wubi installer is as simple as it can be.

Installing Ubuntu 8.04 alongside Windows

Choose an installation drive with enough free space, how much space you want to devote to the Ubuntu install, the language and finally a username and password for the account and then all that’s left to do is click Install and you’re done.

Now it’s just a case of rebooting the system.  The Windows Boot Manager now offers Vista and Ubuntu as options.  Those wanting t dabble with Linux can now choose Ubuntu, boot into the OS and try out the OS knowing that their Windows install is safe.  This offers a great opportunity for testing hardware compatibility.

Installing Ubuntu 8.04 alongside Windows

Not only is Wubi a great installer but it also offers a robust and (as far as I’m able to tell from the testing I’ve done, safe) uninstaller.

There’s another feature of the umenu loader that makes it easier for the less technical to take Ubuntu for a spin.  Being able to use a Live CD relies on the PC being able to boot up off the CD.  If a PC isn’t set up this way then users have to either tweak the BIOS settings or catch the boot loader option at start up (if the BIOS supports this).  umenu does away with all of these hassles and allows the user to modify the Windows bootloader with a few mouse clicks.  After making these changes the system can then be set to boot up easily from a disc.

These options offer the lowest resistance, easiest route for even the most basic user to try out Ubuntu.  If burning a CD (or mounting an ISO) could be automated in the same way (and I’m sure it could), installing Ubuntu would be a total no-brainer.

Microsoft Office On iPhone Next Year

The new Apple iPhone 2.0 Firmware not only includes Microsoft Office support, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint but also has the best email on a mobile phone, up to the minute calendar, more powerful contacts, desktop class web browsing, enterprise applications, smarter phone features and more for business. We will show you below what each one can do.
This is what Apple Say

What makes iPhone a great business phone? Simple. The same features that make iPhone a revolutionary mobile device. And now with iPhone 2.0 software, iPhone does even more for your enterprise. It supports Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, delivering push email, calendar, and contacts. And it gives mobile users secure access to corporate resources with Cisco IPSec VPN and network services with WPA2 Enterprise and 802.1X authentication.
Best email on a mobile device.

Email on iPhone offers a viewing experience unlike any other mobile device. Its rich HTML format means email looks and acts like email on your computer. With new support for iWork, as well as PDF, JPEG, and Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, attachments can be viewed exactly as they were designed to. Users can even zoom in on important information with the tap of a finger. And now that iPhone has built-in support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, users get all the benefits of push email.
Up-to-the-minute calendar.

With its Multi-Touch interface, no other mobile calendar application is as intuitive or simple to use. Tap to accept or decline a meeting invitation. Tap again to see who’s attending, check scheduling conflicts, review the agenda, or add alerts. Colour coding makes calendar entries easy to organise and view at a glance. And push calendar and integrated support for time zones means users can stay up to date no matter where their business takes them.
More powerful contacts.

Finding contacts on iPhone is as simple as scrolling your contact list or using the search feature. Add or change a contact and it updates everywhere automatically. But what really makes Contacts ideal for business is its seamless integration with features such as Maps, Safari, and SMS. Find meeting locations using Maps with GPS. Get directions and call directly from map listings to confirm. Add vCards received via email. Look up contacts faster with search support for companywide Global Address Lists (GAL). And with push contacts on iPhone, contact lists are always up to date.
