I was born and brought up in Iran, a beautiful country full of history. I started taking photos at an early age of my life with a Lubitel, a Russian twin lenses camera. Most of my photos in those days were black and white. It was a very nice camera that my parents gave me when I was 15 years old.

I always loved to see images. I remember that I would spend time in the library for hours and hours looking at the different photos in Life Magazine, National Geographic and other photographic journals and books. Also I always loved nature, and the different patterns made in it. I remember because of my Entomology studies, I would spend hours in the laboratory looking into microscopes at those beautiful and perfect structures that God created in those different tiny flowers, plants, tiny nematods, animals and insects. Then after I finished university in Iran, I left to do on my M.Sc. in California, the Golden State. There I was witness to even more of the beauties that nature held in each different moments of time. I remember I was always walking and trying to absorb all the scenes in my mind and memory as well as recording them on film. I forgot to say that I received another precious gift from my parents. That was a Canon camera with a fixed lense (G-III QL17). Then after I finished my studies, I returned to Iran for work. I consider myself an artist photographer.

At present I have a lovely Minolta Dynax 7, Mamiya 7II with few lenses. I still love and adore nature and all aspects of it. As a result I love macro photography, landscape, architecture (old and new), and many other categories like artistic abstracts, travel, people, fashion, and photo journalism.

In February 2008, I was delighted to be one of the Amateur UK Photographers short-listed in the Sony World Photography Competition 2008.

I have a vast numbers of printed photos, slides and thousands of negatives which all are archived in many folders.

I love to share my observations through my photos with those people who love and appreciate.

Massive Embezzlement Scandal !!
Iranian-Canadian Mahmoud Reza Khavari, managing director of Bank Melli, Iran’s largest state-owned bank, flew to Canada after the arrest of several top-level bankers in connection with a case described as the largest embezzlement in Iranian history, the semiofficial Mehr News Agency reported Wednesday. It is reported he is in the Toronto area – where a $3-million home is owned in his name. His resignation follows an embezzlement scandal involving more than $2.6 billion.
Khavari is among 22 people being sought by Iran’s chief prosecutor in the case, and his bank stands accused of facilitating some of the fraudulent payments.
Mr. Khavari is the registered owner of real estate on 222 Elmwood Avenue obtained for $ 625,000 in 2001 and of property located at 22 Suncrest Drive in the Bridle Path neighbourhood which was obtained for $2.925 million in 2007.

Don't Wipe Your . . . , Wash It!

(viewed 550 times)
The anus and buttocks may be cleansed with toilet paper or similar paper products, especially in many Western countries. Elsewhere, water may be used (using a jet, as with a bidet, or splashed and washed with the hand). In other cultures and contexts, materials such as rags, leaves (including seaweed), corn cobs, sponges or sticks are used.
The use of water in Muslim countries is due in part to Muslim sharia which encourages washing after all instances of defecation. Further, Islam has made flexible provisions for when the water is scarce that the use of stones or papers can equally be practiced for the act of cleansing after defecation as well as in ablution. The use of these other means to clean one's self doesn't include animals bones or skin in consideration to these being food for other animals and non-human creatures. In many countries, a hand-held bidet or pail of water is used in lieu of a pedestal.

Natural Position Toilet

(viewed 5631 times)
A squat toilet (also known Natural-Position toilet) is a toilet used by squatting, rather than sitting. There are several types of squat toilets, but they all consist essentially of a hole in the ground. The only exception is a "pedestal" squat toilet, which is the same height as a standard flush toilet. It is also possible to squat over standard Western pedestal toilets, but this requires extra care as they are not specifically designed for squatting.

Some benefits of using squat toilets are:
- It is less expensive and easier to clean and maintain.
- It does not involve any contact between the buttocks and thighs with a potentially unsanitary surface.
- Squatting might help to build the required exhaust pressure more comfortably and quickly.
- Squatting makes elimination faster, easier and more complete.
- Elimination in squatting posture protects the nerves that control the prostate, bladder and uterus from becoming stretched and damaged.
- Squatting relaxes the puborectalis muscle which normally chokes the rectum in order to maintain continence.
- Squatting securely seals the ileocecal valve, between the colon and the small intestine. In the conventional sitting position, this valve is unsupported and often leaks during evacuation.
- For pregnant women, squatting avoids pressure on the uterus when using the toilet. Daily squatting helps prepare the mother-to-be for a more natural delivery.
- Squatting may reduce the occurrence or severity of hemorrhoids and possibly other colorectal disorders such as diverticulosis and appendicitis.

The economy of Israel is a technologically advanced market economy, including a rapidly-developing high-tech and service sectors. As of 2010, Israel has the 24th largest economy in the world, and ranks 15th among 169 world nations on the UN's Human Development Index, which places it in the category of "Very Highly Developed".
The major industrial sectors include metal products, electronic and biomedical equipment, processed foods, chemicals, and transport equipment. Israel diamond industry is one of the world's centers for diamond cutting and polishing. Relatively poor in natural resources, Israel depends on imports of petroleum, coal, food, uncut diamonds and production inputs, though the country's nearly total reliance on energy imports may change with recent discoveries of large natural gas reserves off its coast. Israel is a world leader in software, telecommunication and semiconductors development. The high concentration of high-tech industries in Israel, which are backed by a strong venture capital industry, gave it the nickname "Silicon Wadi", which is considered second in importance only to its Californian counterpart. The country was the destination for Berkshire Hathaway's first investment outside the US when it purchased ISCAR Metalworking, and the first research and development centers outside the USA for companies including Intel and Microsoft. Israel is also a major tourist destination, with 3.45 million foreign tourists visiting in 2010.
In September 2010, Israel was invited to join the OECD. Israel has also signed free trade agreements with the European Union, the United States, the European Free Trade Association, Turkey, Mexico, Canada, Jordan, Egypt, and on 18 December 2007, became the first non-Latin-American country to sign a free trade agreement with the Mercosur trade bloc.

Map of countries that will support Palestine . . . .

Map of countries that will support Palestine's UN bid for statehood

Palestinians have been fighting for their own sovereign state on the West Bank and Gaza since their occupation by Israel in 1967. Peace talks and negotiations have been running for decades but a solution to satisfy both parties has never been found. In a shift last year, Palestine started asking countries to recognise an independent state based on 1967 borders. To date it has only had observer status at the UN but now Mr Abbas is asking for admission as a full member state. Significantly this could give the region access to the International Criminal Court where they could challenge the Israeli occupation.
How does the application work?
Mr Abbas has submitted a written application to UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon for approval. If this is granted, the UN Security Council will then look at the application and pass a vote. Palestine will need nine of 15 council members to support their move - and crucially no vetoes from permanent members. China, France, Russia, the UK and the US are all permanent members who enjoy this right of veto. The 10 non-permanent members, who sit for two-year terms, are currently Bosnia and Herzegovina, Germany, Portugal, Brazil, India, South Africa, Colombia, Lebanon, Gabon and Nigeria.
On approval by the Security Council, the application would then need a majority of two-thirds in the General Assembly to stand. However, US President Barack Obama has already declared he will use his veto, which means it is unlikely to reach this stage.
