238) Why do Ladies do that!!!

I am really wondering why do ladies - sepcially the beautiful ones - do these silly operations to change their features. E.g Nancy was a beautiful girl, and she is beautiful now as well but why does she need an operation aslan?!

It seems that I will never understand women :((

236) Cairo My Love 2 - Ancient Pre-Cairo

Long before the pyramids were built, Egypt's northern and southern territories were ruled separately. It was about 5000 years ago that a young prince by the name of Narmer (Menes) unified the Red (North) and White (South) kingdoms and became Egypt's first Pharaoh. As brilliant a politician as he was a warrior, Narmer chose the site of Memphis as his capital. The city was situated at the then Nile Delta tip, along the North-South border, and about 25 km south of today's downtown Cairo.

For the next 800 years or so, the first Capital of the ancient Egyptians prospered under the rule of Zoser, Khufu (Cheops), Khafre (Chephren), Menkaure (Mycerinus), Unas, and others. It became one of the most influential and powerful cities in the world, and housed one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Great Pyramid of Giza. Constructed on the Giza plateau, a necropolis of the city of Memphis on the Nile's west bank, the three Great Pyramids are the ultimate manifestation of political stability and power of the ruler during the Third and Fourth Dynasties. Khufu's son built 2 of the Giza pyramids.

235) Started to see the light!

I have lately been doing an enormus amount of meetings to get the great minds in Egypt together. Thank God, I have managed to connect with four of them and started real projects to develop our country. These guys have the same vision like me, and gypo, and I am sure if we work together, we will see another better place to live in. Hopefuly to see the results in our life time :)

Please let me know if you or anyone you know is interested in doing public work or service, or dedicating part of his/her time and experience in serving this country that really needs a lot to get back on track again.

234) FUN::: Mazda Innovative Parking!

This is how Mazda optimized parking by having a tree for every car!


233) Reason, Season, & Lifetime!

A girl who HAD a special placement in my life told me once that there are 3 kinds of people we meet in our lives:

- People we know for a reason (e.g. a lesson we learn or a wisdom, or to save us).
- People we know for a season (e.g. summer, work, college).
- & People we know for a lifetime.

Take your time and know who is who when you offer your friendship, love or care!

232) Imagination is more powerful than knowledge!

Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is more powerful than knowledge.”

I believe this is true in many respects because while knowledge allows you to see things as they are, imagination allows you to see things as they could be.

231) CAIRO MY LOVE - 1

I always loved Cairo to the extent that I established a NGO called Cairo Friendship Association and it was so poplular in the 90s that we were in AUC, Ein Shams, Cairo, Helwan, even Switzerland, Manama, and Canada. We even built a complete Egyptian Alley inside the AUC campus in 1996-7.

I hate what Cairo has reached now, and I am starting -on its 1038th anniversary - some Facts and Fadfada about this OM EL DONIA EL MA7ROUSA....u r most welcome to share in this series...


Pre-Cairo: Al-Fustat was founded in AD 648 near other Egyptian cities and villages, including the old Egyptian capital Memphis, Heliopolis, Giza and the Byzantine fortress of Babylon-in-Egypt. However, Fustat was itself a new city built as a military garrison for Arab troops and was the closest central location to Arabia that was accessible to the Nile.

Fustat became a regional center of Islam during the Umayyad period and was where the Umayyad ruler, Marwan II, made his last stand against the Abbasids. Later, during the Fatimid era, Cairo was officially founded in AD 969 as an imperial capital and it absorbed Fustat.

During its history various dynasties would add suburbs to the city and construct important structures that became known throughout the Islamic world including the Al-Azhar mosque. Conquered by Saladin and ruled by Ayyubids starting in 1171, it remained an important center of the Muslim world. Slave soldiers or Mamluks seized Egypt and ruled from their capital at Cairo from 1250 to 1517 when they were defeated by the Ottomans.

Following Napoleon's brief occupation, an Ottoman officer named Muhammad Ali made Cairo the capital of an independent empire that lasted from 1801 to 1882. The city came under British control until Egypt attained independence in 1922.

Today, Greater Cairo encompasses various historic towns and modern districts into one of the most populous cities in the world. A journey through Cairo is a virtual time travel: from the Pyramids, Saladin's Citadel, the Virgin Mary's Tree, the Sphinx, and ancient Heliopolis, to Al-Azhar, the Mosque of Amr ibn al-A'as, Saqqara, the Hanging Church, and the Cairo Tower. It is the Capital of Egypt, and indeed its history is intertwined with that of the country. Today, Cairo's official name is Al-Qahira (Cairo), although the name informally used by most Egyptians is "Masr".

230) 23 Yolyo!

229) Get Up & Look for it!

“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe ‎in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up ‎and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them”
George Bernard Shaw.

228) You can't and shouldn't want to!!

For some people it doesn't seem to matter how long their day is. They just never seem to have enough time. The clock is ticking and it's ticking too fast for comfort. It feels like they have a million things to do, a couple thousand of which were actually due last week and every new task is urgent and can't wait...

Sounds familiar? Well if it does you might be one of those people who just don't have a very good relationship with time. It is often a sign that you're not in control of your own day-planner. You may have some things on your to do list that you set out to accomplish, but anything and everything that you come across interferes with your plans.

Someone or something else seems to be claiming your time to the extent that you never seem to get anything done. You might be asking yourself: "How can I possibly get everything done?" Good question. The answer is very simple: "You can't and you shouldn't want to".

223) Watch out from reaching the Top!

When you think that you have reached the top
When you feel that this is your highest point
When you know that you can't be better
Then watch out coz this is the start of your end!

222) Time is .... !!

"Time is very slow for those who wait,
very fast for those who are scared,
very long for those who lament,
very short for those who celebrate.
But, for those who love, time is eternity"
(William Shakespeare)

221) Avoiding Office Stress - Avoid Misunderstanding!

A good tip for avoiding doing the wrong task is to make sure your understanding of what your manager wants you to do is the same as his. When you have been given a task of anything greater than a trivial size, write down exactly what you think you have been asked to do. Take this written description to your manager and ask if you have it defined correctly. You could create and use a task specification form to act as a checklist, with headings such as:
· inputs to the task,
· required outputs from the task,
· scope of the task,
· what is not part of the task,
· standards, procedures or previous examples to be used,
· a deadline by when the task should be complete,
· total effort budgeted,
· agreed level of monitoring and coaching (you might as well suggest how much or how little help you need as many managers simply guess what you need and often get it wrong).

220) Egyptian + Balcony + London = DEATH!!

What is wrong with London and famous Egyptian figures?!
4 Egyptian prominent figures has died by the same way in the same place over 20 years. The weird thing that they have many things in common:
1. Famous
2. Had a political or intelligence role
3. Many rumors around them lately
4. Decided to write their diaries.
5. Depressed and lonely.
6. "Fell" over the balcony in Downtown London.
Israel claimed that Ashraf Marwan is an Israeli Spy on the highest level, but I guess the big funeral and political presence are an indirect message from the Egyptian Presidency to the Israelis. Ahsraf Marwan was like Raafat El Haggan, and I suggest to have a movie about him called AL KHADEE3A!
