:: مدیرعامل اپل: همجنسگرا هستم و به آن افتخار می‌کنم
تیم کوک، مدیرعامل شرکت اپل، به طور علنی اعلام کرده که همجنسگرا است و به این گرایش خود "افتخار می‌کند." آقای کوک در یادداشتی در هفته‌نامه بلومبرگ بیزینس‌ویک نوشته است که گرایش جنسی خود را علنی کرده تا به کسانی که به خاطر هویت جنسی‌شان رنج می‌برند کمک کند. او نوشته که هیچ‌گاه همجنسگرا بودنش را تکذیب نکرده اما تا پیش از این نیز آن را به شکل عمومی آشکار نکرده است و تلاش داشته تا حدی حریم خصوصی خود را حفظ کند. آقای کوک در روزهای گذشته از ایالت زادگاهش، آلاباما، انتقاد کرده که هنوز حقوق همجنسگرایان و تراجنسیتی‌ها را به رسمیت نشناخته است. 'تاخت‌زدن حریم خصوصی' آقای کوک در یادداشت روز پنج‌شنبه‌اش نوشته است: "من در این مدت گرایش جنسی‌ام را منکر نشده‌ام اما تا امروز هم به طور علنی درباره‌اش صحبت نکرده بودم." مدیرعامل شرکت آمریکایی اپل گفته است "همجنسگرا بودن را یکی از بزرگ‌ترین مواهبی می‌دانم که خدا به من داده است". او گفته که خودش را یک کنشگر حامی حقوق همجنسگرایان نمی‌داند اما دریافته است که خودش "از فداکاری دیگران بهره برده است." به گفته او "اگر شنیدن این که مدیر اپل یک همجنسگرا است می‌تواند به کسی کمک کند که با هویت خودش کنار بیاید و یا مایه آسودگی هر کسی شود که احساس تنهایی می‌کند یا به مردم الهام ببخشد که بر حقوق برابر خودشان اصرار کنند، ارزشش را دارد که این را با حریم خصوصی‌ام تاخت بزنم." آقای کوک گفته که همکارانش در اپل از گرایش جنسی‌اش با خبر بوده‌اند با این حال علنی حرف زدن درباره این موضوع "انتخاب آسانی نبوده است." وی از قول مارتین لوترکینگ، یکی از رهبران حقوق مدنی آمریکا، نوشته است: "مهم‌ترین و فوری‌ترین پرسش زندگی این است که برای دیگران چه می‌کنید."

رد وزیر پیشنهادی آقای روحانی برای وزارت عُلوم توسُط مجلس مُلاها، نه فقط بُحران سیاسی در دستگاه قُدرت جمهوری اسلامی را تشدید کرده، بلکه این حرکت بازدارنده، جناح میانه حُکومت را چند گام بیشتر به سمت انتهای بُن بست استراتژی و راهکارهایش برای تثبیت خود در ساختار مزبور به جلو رانده است.

:: آنجلینا جولی متولد خرداد-رازهای زیبایی و تناسب اندام او
رازهای زیبایی آنجلینا جولی : 1) داشتن کودک می تواند زیبایی اندام یک زن را از بین ببرد، علاوه بر این از دست دادن وزن برای زنی که فرزند خود را به دنیا آورده است، بسیار مشکل است. آنجلینا بااستفاده از ورزش یوگا زمان بارداری تناسب اندام خود را که پیش از بارداری داشت، حفظ کرد. اقدام وی برای حفظ سلامتی و تناسب اندام نیز به طور قطع باعث شده است آنجلینا در زمان ایفای نقش خود در فیلم هایش جذابیت و زیبایی خود را حفظ کند. 2) خاویار تنها مزه خوب ندارد، بلکه برای پوست نیز بسیار مفید است. آنجلینا جولی برای آرایش صورت و برای بدن خود از نوعی خاویار که دارای دم درازی است استفاده می کند. مقادیر زیاد پروتئین و روغن که در کرم به دست آمده از خاویار وجود دارد، به شادابی صورت و ازبین رفتن چروک بدن کمک می کند. (کشور ایران یکی از بزرگترین صادرکنندگان خاویار در جهان است ولی ما هر شب مانند پنبه دانه خواب خاویار را می بینیم) 3) وی همواره در لباس های ساده و در عین حال شیک دیده می شود. 4) - او به وعده های غذایی کوچک در طول روز علاقه بسیاری دارد است. به همین دلیل است که او بسیار فعال و با نشاط است. او به طور متوسط روزانه در حدود600 کالری مصرف می کند، که کمتر از متوسط مصرف کالری است. با این حال، او می گوید این مقدار مصرف برای فعالیتش در طول روز مناسب است. 5) - او وعده های غذایی بدون چربی را در برنامه رژیم غذایی روزانه خود جای داده است که این شامل گوشت قرمز نیز هست. در برنامه رژیم غذایی اش دو وعده در روز از مواد غذایی پروتئینی استفاده می کند. او همچنین برای حفظ شکل و باریک بودن در هفته یکبار به طور کامل فقط از مواد پروتئینی استفاده می کند. این باعث می شود خود را فعال و سالم نگه دارد. 6) - اگر دوست دارید که بدانید براقیت طبیعی پوستش به چه دلیل است، این شفافیت به خاطر استفاده از روغن نارگیل است. او روغن نارگیل را نیز در برنامه رژیم غذایی اش گنجانده است . صبحانه او عمدتا از غلات و میوه جات تشکیل شده است، که باعث انرژی زیاد در طول روز می شود. (کسانی که پوست چرب دارند از هیچ روغن و کرمی استفاده نکنند بهتر است صورت خود را با جوش شیرین یا سرکه سیب تمیز کنید) 7) - او در یکی از مصاحبه های خود گفته است که به خوردن سوپ علاقه ی زیادی دارد. سوپ برای سم زدایی بدن بسیار مناسب است.

:: فقرا و ثروتمندان ایرانی سالی چقدر هزینه می‌کنند
فقیرترین و ثروتمندترین‌های ایران چقدر در سال هزینه می‌کنند؟ این پرسشی است که پاسخ آن در گزارش مفصل بانک مرکزی ایران در باره بودجه خانوارهای شهری در سال گذشته خورشیدی یافت می‌شود. در حالی که فقیرترین گروه شهرنشین (دهک اول) در طول سال گذشته شش میلیون و ۴۴۲ هزار تومان برای زندگی خود خرج کرده، ثروتمند ترین گروه شهرنشین (دهک دهم) ۸۷ میلیون و ۷۱۱ هزار تومان را مصرف رسانده است. معنی این ارقام این است که در سال ٩٢، ثروتمندان ایرانی حدود ۱۴ برابر فقرا برای خرج کرده‌اند. بنابر آمارهای منتشر شده بانک مرکزی ایران، دهک‌های دوم تا پنجم کمتر از بیست میلیون تومان بابت زندگی خود هزینه کرده‌اند. این در حالی است که دهک ششم و هفتم کمتر از ۳۰ میلیون تومان هزینه داشته‌اند. بر اساس گزارش بانک مرکزی ایران، دهک نهم که در ردیف ثروتمندان قرار دارند بیشتر از ۴۵ میلیون تومان صرف گذران زندگی خود کرد.

U.S. FCC chief may propose 'hybrid' net neutrality plan - WSJ

Wheeler testifies before a House Energy and Commerce Communications and Technology Subcommittee hearing on oversight of the FCC on Capitol Hill in WashingtonFederal Communications Commission chief is close to settling on a hybrid legal strategy for new Internet traffic rules that would treat part of the web network as a public utility, the Wall Street Journal reported in Friday's newspaper. FCC officials earlier this month listed a hybrid approach as one of various options they were considering for new "net neutrality" rules. It would split broadband into a retail service, connecting Internet service providers with consumers, and a back-end one, linking content companies' servers with ISPs' facilities. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler is now laying the groundwork for rules that would regulate the retail section more lightly under the agency's existing authority but apply stricter rules to the back end by classifying it more like a public utility, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Broad rally lifts Wall St to record as BoJ bumps up stimulus

Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange shortly after the opening bell in New YorkBy Rodrigo Campos NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Dow industrials hit a record high on Friday as stocks rallied on Wall Street after the Bank of Japan significantly ramped up its stimulus program, just days after the Federal Reserve wound down its years-long package of incentives. The Nasdaq Composite recorded 209 new highs and 27 new lows. The BoJ's board voted 5-4 to accelerate purchases of Japanese government bonds while tripling its purchases of exchange-traded funds and real-estate investment trusts. At the same time, Japan's $1.2 trillion Government Pension Investment Fund announced new allocations for its portfolio, raising its holdings of domestic and foreign stock holdings to 25 percent each from 12 percent.

Starbucks Americas sales disappoint on softer traffic

Pedestrians walk past a Starbucks store in the Manhattan borough of New York(Reuters) - Starbucks Corp's early re-launch of its popular Pumpkin Spice latte drink failed to heat up business at its U.S. cafes, disappointing Wall Street and sending the company's shares down almost 5 percent. The world's biggest coffee chain said a 1 percent increase in traffic contributed to a 5 percent gain in sales for Americas-region cafes open at least 13 months. But that result fell short of the 6.2 percent same-store sales gain expected by analysts polled by Consensus Metrix. The U.S.-dominated Americas region contributes the majority of Starbucks revenue. ...

Japan shares soar, yen skids after BOJ stuns with more easing steps
By Lisa Twaronite TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese stocks jumped and the yen skidded to six-year lows against the dollar on Friday after the Bank of Japan surprised markets with fresh easing steps - a move aimed at stoking inflation and recharging a fragile economic recovery. The Nikkei stock average rallied 3.9 percent after Japan's central bank said it would purchase more shares of exchange-traded funds and real estate investment trusts, and extend the duration of its portfolio of Japanese government bonds, to "pre-empt manifestation" of risks. Data released early on Friday showed Japan's annual core consumer inflation slowed for a second straight month in September, adding to evidence the BOJ is likely to miss its price goal. Before the BOJ's surprise, markets were chered by Wall Street's surge late in the session on Thursday, after data showed surprisingly strong third-quarter U.S.
