:: فاضلاب دره سیلیکون به آب شرب تبدیل شد
تصفیه خانه پیشرفته دره سیلیکون امکان تبدیل فاضلاب را به آب پاک تر از قابل شرب معمولی فراهم کرد. به گزارش گروه اخبار علمی ایرنا به نقل از رویترز، این تصفیه خانه که با سرمایه 72 میلیون دلاری و با بهره گیری از جدیدترین فناوری روز راه اندازی شده است، قابلیت تبدیل فاضلاب را به آب آشامیدنی دارد. در این تصفیه خانه، فاضلاب های شهری در طی چند مرحله از جمله فیلتر میکروبی، اسمز معکوس و اشعه فرابنفش، تصفیه شده و به شبکه آب شهری باز می گردند. آب شرب حاصل از این تصفیه خانه در مقایسه با سایر تصفیه خانه ها، تمیزتر و خالص تر است. این تصفیه خانه ظرفیت تولید روزانه 8 میلیون گالن آب شرب با خلوص نزدیک به آب مقطر را دارد. در زمان حاضر از این تصفیه خانه به عنوان یک سامانه کمکی برای افزایش خلوص آب سایر تصفیه خانه ها استفاده می شود. در این فرآیند فاضلاب تصفیه شده از سایر تصفیه خانه ها وارد تیوب های کوچک فیلتر میکروبی می شود و هزاران فیبر توخالی شبیه به نی ایجاد می کند. اطراف این نی ها دارای خلل فرجی به قطر 0.1 میکرون معادل یک سیصدم تار موی انسان است. این خلل و فرج اجسام جامد، انواع باکتری، موجودات تک یاخته ای و برخی ویروس ها را فیلتر می کنند. در گام بعدی اسمز معکوس انجام می پذیرد. این مرحله شامل عبور دادن آب با فشار بسیار زیاد از روی سطوحی است که دارای حفره هایی به اندازه مولکول آب هستند. در این مرحله، نمک، ویروس ها و سایر آلودگی ها، داروهای ساخته دست انسان و انواع آفت کش ها از آب جدا می شوند. در مرحله پایانی، آب درون مخازنی جریان می یابد که تحت تابش شدید اشعه فرابنفش قرار دارند. این اشعه مانند یک گند زدای بسیار قوی و در فرآیندی شبیه به استریلیزه کردن داروها، مواد غذایی و آب میوه ها، ساختار DNA ویروس ها و سایر موجودات زنده شناور در آب را از بین می برد. در جریان این فرآیند ها 99.99 درصد از تمام عوامل بیماری زای موجود در آب از بین می رود. مواد جامد حل نشده در آب آشامیدنی حاصل از این فرآیند حدود 40 واحد در میلیون است. در حالی که میزان این مواد در آب آشامیدنی کشور های پیشرفته به طور متوسط 215 واحد در میلیون و البته حداکثر میزان قابل قبول این مواد در آب آشامیدنی برابر 500 واحد در میلیون است. در حال حاضر از آب این تصفیه خانه برای آبیاری پارک ها، زمین های بازی و شستشو استفاده می شود، اما با توجه به خلوص بسیار بالای آب حاصل از آن، مقامات انتظار دارند آب حاصل از این تصفیه خانه به زودی وارد شبکه آب آشامیدنی شود. درهٔ سیلیکون (به انگلیسی: Silicon Valley) نام رایج و غیر رسمی منطقه ای در حدود ۷۰ کیلومتری جنوب شرقی سانفرانسیسکو در حومهٔ سانتا کلارا، کالیفرنیا، ایالات متحده آمریکا است. شهرت این منطقه به دلیل قرار داشتن بسیاری از شرکت های مطرح انفورماتیک جهان در این منطقه است و نام این منطقه ابتداً برگرفته از تعداد زیاد شرکت های تولید کنندهٔ تراشه های سیلیسیمی در این منطقه بود که بعدها به نمادی از وجود کمپانی های زیاد فعّال در زمینه فناوری های پیشرفته در این منطقه تبدیل شد. دره سیلیکون شهرهای بسیاری را دربر می گیرد که مهمترین آنها سان خوزه مشهور به پایتخت دره سیلیکون می باشد.

:: همکاری برای تاریک کردن چهره خورشید
روز پنجشنبه، چنانچه پیش بینی شده بود، یک خورشیدگرفتگی پاره ای (جزیی) رخ داد که در بیشتر بخش های آمریکای شمالی دیده می شد. البته در آن روز تنها ماه نو نبود که بخشی از چهره ی خورشید را پوشاند، بلکه گروه لکه های غول پیکر AR 2192 هم در این کار با آن همراه شده بودند. تصویر تله فوتویی که اینجا می بینید، در زمان نزدیک به بیشینه ی گرفتگی از سانتاکروز کالیفرنیا ثبت شده و پیکره ی گسترده ی ماه را نشان می دهد که در برابر خورشید به حالت ضدنور و تمام تیره در آمده است. منطقه ی فعال ۲۱۹۲ یا همان گروه لکه های AR 2192 که با پهنایی به اندازه ی قطر سیاره ی مشتری، بخش چشمگیری از خورشید را تیره کرده است، نزدیک مرکز و زیر لبه ی خمیده ی ماه به چشم می خورد. این لکه ی گروهی دارد به آرامی روی چهره ی خورشید جابجا می شود و تا چند روز دیگر از میدان دید ما بیرون خواهد رفت؛ بدین ترتیب پیش بینی فعالیت های آن نیز دشوار خواهد شد. ولی پیش بینی گرفتگی های خورشید کار ساده تری است. خورشیدگرفتگی بعدی یک گرفتگی کامل خواهد بود و در ۲۰ مارس ۲۰۱۵ رخ خواهد داد.

:: فرج سرکوهی: «اسید پاشی و سکوت تا کنونی آقای خامنه ای»
اقای علی خامنه ای، ـــ با سمت رسمی «ولی فقیه و رهبر جمهوری اسلامی» ـــ و اغلب «مراجع تقلید» ریز و درشتی که به گمان خود در «دفاع از اسلام راستین» چنان حساس و پا در رکاب اند که از آثار ادبی و هنری، و حتا از سرگرمی بی زیان اوقات فراغت مردمان نیز نگذشته و هر از چندی به صراحت به این و آن رمان، شعر، سریال، نمایش، مقاله، فیلم و... حمله می کنند، تا کنون در برابر اسید پاشی و دیگر شکل های تجلی بربریت علیه زنان سکوت کرده اند هرچند این گونه کردارها نه پدیده های منفرد که پدیده هائی مکرر و سابقه دارند. این سکوت، خواسته یا ناخواسته، پیام های مشخصی را مخابره می کند به مثل این پیام که خطر و آسیب های قطعی اسید پاشی از «خطر» احتمالی این یا آن رمان و فیلم و شعر و سریال کم تر است ورنه «رهبر معظم» و «مراجع تقلید عزیز» در این باب نیز چنین می کردند که در آن باب ها کرده و می کنند.

:: اعدام محسن امیراصلانی، نقطه‌ای سیاه بر کارنامه‌ی ایرانِ قرنِ ۲۱
amir-aslani_02_1.jpg.815x390_q85_crop_upscaleتنها ۱۲ ساعت قبل از اعدام، در روز اول پاییز سال‌جاری برای اولین بار نام “محسن امیراصلانی زنجانی” در رسانه‌های حقوق بشری به گوش رسید و صبح روز چهارشنبه ۲ مهر ماه وی به اتهام “فساد فی الارض از طریق بدعت در اصول و فروع دین، توهین به حضرت یونس و زنا” در محوطه‌ی زندان رجایی شهر کرج، از طریق چوبه‌ی دار اعدام شد. محسن امیراسلانی، بنیانگذار عرفان جوهری، ۱۸ فروردین ماه سال ۱۳۸۵ به همراه همسر و ۶ تن از شاگردانش توسط ماموران وزارت اطلاعات ایران بازداشت شد و ۹ ماه را در سلول‌های انفرادی تحت بازجویی سپری کرد. طبق اسناد دیوان عالی کشور، اتهامی که محسن امیراصلانی ابتدا به خاطر آن بازداشت شد، شکایت ۳ تن از شاگردانش مبنی بر رابطه‌ی جنسی با اکراه بوده؛ در حالی که هیچ‌گاه شاکیان پرونده به غیر از این ادعا نتوانستند مدرک پزشکی یا شاهدی ارائه دهند و خانواده‌ی امیراصلانی معتقدند، وزارت اطلاعات ایران برای این‌که محسن قرائت جدیدی از دین ارائه داده ‌بود، چنین اتهاماتی را به وی وارد کرد.

:: ايران: ريحانه جباري، دانشجو و طراح 26ساله اعدام شد
مريم رجوي: اعدام ريحانه، نشانه ديگري از توحش رژيم آخوندي و آن روي سكه جنايت ضد بشري آخوندها در اسيدپاشيدن بر روي زنان و دختران بيگناه ايراني است. خانم مريم رجوي اعدام جنايتكارانه ريحانه جباري، دانشجو و طراح دكوراسيون 26ساله را نشانه ديگري از توحش و زن ستيزي رژيم آخوندي توصيف كرد. وي گفت اين اقدام سبعانه آن روي سكه جنايت ضد بشري آخوندها در اسيدپاشيدن بر روي زنان و دختران بيگناه ايراني است. خانم رجوي گفت: اعدام ريحانه جباري در روزي كه مردم شهرهاي مختلف كشور براي اعتراض عليه توحش اسيدپاشيدن بر زنان و دختران بيدفاع ايراني، فراخوان داده اند، در هراس از گسترش اعتراضات و به منظور تشديد جو ارعاب در جامعه صورت مي گيرد. وي از عموم مردم به ويژه زنان و جوانان خواست به جنبش ملي دفاع از زنان ايراني بپيوندند. رژيم پوسيده ولايت فقيه در محاصره بحرانهاي داخلي و خارجي بيهوده تلاش مي كند با اين جنايات فجيع و با ايجاد جو رعب و وحشت، از انفجار خشم مردم جلوگيري كند. رجوي از عموم مراجع بين المللي مدافع حقوق بشر و حقوق زنان خواست اعدام اين دختر جوان دانشجو را قويا محكوم نمايند و اقدامات سريع و لازم الاجرا عليه رژيم آخوندي براي توقف اعدام و شكنجه و كشتار در ايران اتخاذ نمايند. سحرگاه شنبه 3 آبان، ريحانه جباري، دانشجو و طراح دكوراسيون بعد از هفت سال و نيم اسارت در چنگ دژخيمان رژيم آخوندي در زندان گوهردشت كرج به دار آويخته شد. وي شب پيش از آن از زندان قرچك ورامين كه شكنجه گاهي قرون وسطايي است، به بند قرنطينه گوهردشت منتقل شده بود. اين جنايت به اصرار سركردگان وزارت اطلاعات و روياروي فراخوانهاي مكرر ارگانهاي بين المللي و فعالان حقوق بشري و حقوق زنان صورت گرفت. مقاومت ايران بارها براي نجات اين دختر جوان فراخوان داده و كمپينهايي را براي نجات وي برگزار كرد. ريحانه جباري، درسن 19سالگي بعد از آن كه با سلاح سرد در مقابل يك مأمور اطلاعات به دفاع از خود پرداخت، زنداني شد. اين مأمور اطلاعات در يك طرح فريبكارانه قصد تعرض به ريحانه را داشت كه او به ناچار به دفاع از خود برخاست. اين درگيري به قتل اين عامل اطلاعاتي رژيم منجر شد. دژخيمان رژيم آخوندي براي وادار كردن ريحانه به اعترافات اجباري او را تحت شكنجه هاي وحشيانه قرار دادند. رژيم زن ستيز آخوندي تلاش دارد با اعدام زناني كه در مقابل سركوبگريها و رذالتهاي عوامل رژيم سر خم نكرده اند، از همه زنان و جوانان زهر چشم بگيرد و جو ارعاب را در جامعه شدت بخشد. دبيرخانه شوراي ملي مقاومت ايران 3 آبان 1393 (25 اكتبر 2014)

:: رازهای سر مهر تاریخی آخوندها
در هر صورت انگیزه اصلی تمایل مغولان به اسلام این بوده که خواسته اند حکومتشان بر مسلمان ها مشروعیت پیدا کند و مستحکم تر شود، نه اینکه دغدغۀ های آنجهانی یا ترس از جهنم آنانرا به این گرایش ترغیب نموده باشد، و گرایش آنها به مذهب شیعه هم به این دلیل بوده که مشروعیت حکومتشان متوقف بر تبعیت از خلفای عباسی مستقر در مصر نباشد چون با شیوخ شیعه، همه بهتر میتوانستند سازش نمایند و آنها را در خدمت حکومت خود درآورند، همه فریبکاری و دغل بازی این شیوخ برای فریب مردم و آرام کردن اعتراضات مردم ایران قابل دسترسی تر بود. بعد از فرو پاشی حکومت ایلخانان مغول مناطق تحت نفوذ آنها که شامل ایران و عراق و بخش شرقی آسیای صغیر بود مورد حمله تیمور لنگ یا تیمور گورکان قرار گرفت که بسیار وحشتناک تر از حمله چنگیز خان بود. به نقل تاریخ، تیمورهم گرایش به مذهب شیعه داشته و به زیارت اماکن مذهبی شیعه می‌رفته و به علویان اظهار دوستی و محبت می‌نموده و آنها را مورد احترام قرار می‌داده و به دیدار آنها می‌رفته. همان طور که به صوفیان هم اظهار علاقه می کرده و به دیدار آنها می‌شتافته. مسجد گوهر شاد مشهد هم به نام گوهر شاد زن شاهرخ پسر تیمور لنگ ساخته شده است. در لشکر کشی دوم امیر تیمور که خرابیهای بسیار به بار آورد و از سرهای ایرانیان شهرهای مختلف، کله مناره ها بر پا شد، خواجه علی سیاهپوش، پسر شیخ صدرالدین به جای پدرش ریاست خانقاه اردبیل را بعهده داشت. خواجه علی نیز مانند پدرش امیر تیمور را پادشاهی عادل نامید و مورد احترام امیر تیمور واقع شد. امیر تیمور بعد از لشکر کشی به آناتولی، یعنی ترکیه کنونی دو سال بعد در بازگشت به آذربایجان هزاران نوجوان تاتار را که در آناتولی اسیر گرفته بود و با خود آورده بود، بعنوان صدقه به جانقاه اردبیل تقدیم کرد. همین چند هزار جوان تاتار در آینده شدند قزلباشانی که با زور شمشیر حکومت صفویه را بنا نهادند، و به نوجوانی بنام اسمعیل اجازه دادند تا وقیحانه خود را فرستاده خدا بر روی زمین معرفی و بنام خدا جانهای بسیاری از ایرانیان را بستاند. شیعیان ایران اگر کمی وقت بگذارند و تاریخ شیادی ها و شارلاتانیزم مذهبی آخوندها را مطالعه کنند، بدون شک از اعتمادی که در سال 1357 به خمینی و دار و دستۀ غیر ایرانی او کردند بشدت نادم و پشیمان خواهند گردید. برای جبران این انحراف و گمراهی بزرگ تاریخی که همه ایرانیان، بدون استثناء در آن نقش داشتند، به نسل های آیندۀ این سرزمین مدیون هستیم.

The two airlines, which are part of the International Airlines Group, said in a joint statement on Friday they would no longer allow the agency to promote their fares on eDreams in Spain, Opodo in France and eDreams.com, due to a lack of transparency in the final price.
