:: چرا گوسفندها به بهشت می روند و بزها به جهنم؟
به نظر می رسد فیلم کوتاه « بز جهنمی» ساخته کارگردان اسرائیلی Roi Calvo که در فستیوال نسیم شرق تورنتو قرار است نمایش داده شود توانسته است با بازیگوشی تمام از یک تمثیل قدیمی و مذهبی استفاده کند. هم در انجیل و هم در تورات به شکل های مختلف صحبت از بز سرگردان به عنوان تمثیلی از انسان خلافکار و گمراه آورده شده است. اعتقاد بر این است که بشر در کنار دروازه بهشت و جهنم به دو گروه و نوع انسانی تقسیم می شود. یا سربزیر و مومن و مطیعِ فرامین مذهبی هستی که گوسفندی و به بهشت می روی یا ناقلا و شیطان و خلافکار مثل بزکه سرنوشتت به سمت جهنم می چرخد.

کلانتری با بیان این نکته که در زمینه بحران خشکسالی واقعیت‌هایی گفته نشده یا کتمان شده است یا با ناآگاهی از آن گذشته‌ایم، گفت: مسئولان دولتی تا امروز باور نداشتند که کشور دارد رو به قهقرا می‌رود و حالا متوجه این موضوع شده‌اند که کمی دیر است؛ مطابق با استانداردهای جهانی‌درصد بهره‌برداری از آب‌های سطحی نباید بیشتر از ۴۰‌درصد باشد. این درحالی است که بیشتر کشورهای پیشرفته حد ایده‌آل بهره‌برداری برای حفظ منابع آبی خود را لحاظ کرده‌اند که حداکثر ۲۵‌درصد برداشت است. او افزود: تنها دو کشور در جهان وجود دارد که با بهره‌برداری بی‌رویه از منابع آب‌های سطحی در معرض بحران جدی قرار گرفته‌اند و آن دو کشور ایران و مصر است. این در شرایطی است که میزان بهره‌برداری از آب‌های سطحی در مصر به ۴۶‌درصد و در ایران با اختلاف فاحش به ۹۷‌درصد رسیده است. برای این‌که عمق فاجعه را بهتر متوجه شوید عملکرد برخی از کشورهای جهان را در بهره‌برداری از آب‌های سطحی سرزمینشان مرور می‌کنیم: ژاپن ۱۹درصد، آمریکا ۲۱درصد، چین ۲۹درصد، هند ۳۳‌درصد و در کشوری مانند اسپانیا که از لحاظ اقلیم و ویژگی‌های جغرافیایی به ایران شباهت دارد تنها ۲۵درصد.

:: ١١۵ اعدام در دو هفته، هر ۳ ساعت یک اعدام!
ايران : فاشيسم خونريز آخوندی برای به تاخير انداختن سقوط خود اعدامها را به شدت افزايش داده است. در ادامه امواج اعدام در شهرهای مختلف كشور رژيم ضدبشری آخوندی ٣٠ زندانی ديگر را در فاصله روزهاي دوم تا ششم ارديبهشت ماه به چوبه هاي دار سپرد. ٩ زندانی به طور جمعي در ٢ ارديبهشت (٢٢ آوريل) در زندان وكيل آباد شيراز، حلق آويز شدند. در ٣ ارديبهشت نيز ١۶ زندانی ديگر در زندانهای بندرعباس ، كرمان و جيرفت اعدام شدند. در روزهای ۵ و ۶ ارديبهشت نيز سه زندانی در زندان رشت و دو زندانی ديگر در شهرهای زنجان و ابهر اعدام شدند. به اين ترتيب شمار اعدامها طی دو هفته، ٢٣ فروردين تا ۶ ارديبهشت به ١١۵ تن بالغ می شود. البته آمار واقعی اعدام شدگان از اين بسا بيشتر است. از جمله بنابر برخی گزارشها طی هفته های اخير شمار زيادی از زندانيان به طور مخفيانه در اراك اعدام شده اند. جلادان حاكم بر ايران در محاصره بحرانهای فزاينده سياسی، اجتماعی و اقتصادی و نگران از عواقب مذاكرات اتمی، برای ايجاد جو رعب و خفقان و جلوگيری از گسترش اعتراضات اجتماعی، با سوء استفاده از سكوت و بی عملی جامعه بين المللی در مقابل نقض وحشيانه و سيستماتيك حقوق بشر در ايران، بيش از هر زمان ديگر به اعدام و شكنجه و كشتار مردم ايران روی آورده اند. دبيرخانه شورای ملی مقاومت ايران ٧ ارديبهشت ١٣٩۴ (٢٧ آوريل ٢٠١۵)

:: قبة الصخره، بنائی تاریخی، یا منبع نشر خرافات ادیان ابراهیمی
کی از بناهائی که به سبک معماری اموی جعلی نسبت داده می شود، قبة الصخره، در جوار مسجد الاقصی است. البته بنای مسجد جامع دمشق در سوریه هم را بر خواسته از این معماری میدانند، اما بنای قبة الصخره که در سال 691 میلادی و در زمان خلافت عبدالملک مروان یکی از خلفای اموی بنا گردیده، دارای طرح و نقشۀ بی مانندی است که بعد از آن در هیچ مسجد دیگری تکرار نشد. معماری خاص این بنا از نظر بسیاری از کارشناسان معماری، بیشتر به کلیسا ها شبیه است تا مسجد. از آن جهت که عموما ساختمان کلیسا ها، شبیه این بنا بشکلی دایرۀ است. یعنی وقتی شما وارد یک کلیسا می شوید بیشترین چیزی که توجه شما را از نظر معماری جلب می کند، تشابه بنا به شکل ظاهری خورشید است. اکثر کلیساهای اولیه که ساخته میشدند به صورت یک دایره بودند. این نوع معماری هم اکنون نیز در کلیساهای به جا مانده از عهد شاه کنستانتین نیز دیده میشود.

این چیزی که جلوی ماه دیده می شود ایستگاه فضایی بین المللی (ISS) است. عکسی که می بینید سال گذشته و با برنامه ریزی دقیق در زمانی گرفته شد که این پایگاه مدارگرد درست روبروی ماهِ نیمه روشن به تصویر کشیده شود. عکس از مادرید اسپانیا و با زمان نوردهی تنها ۱/۱۰۰۰ ثانیه گرفته شد. جالب این که زمان گذشتن ایستگاه از این سر تا آن سر ماه حدود نیم ثانیه به درازا می کشد. ایستگاه که خود غرق در نور خورشید است را بر روی بخش سایه گرفته ی ماه، آن سوی مرز شب و روز که به نام خط پایانگر شناخته می شود می بینیم. روی بخش روشن ماه چندین دهانه ی گِرد دیده می شود، به همراه سطح های ناهموارتر و روشن تری که به نام کوهستان شناخته می شوند، و پهنه های به نسبت هموار و تیره رنگی که آن ها را به نام دریاوارهای ماه می شناسیم. اگر شما هم خواستید ایستگاه را ببینید، بهتر است از ابزارهای برخطی (آنلاینی) کمک بگیرید که می توانند به شما بگویند ایستگاه فضایی بین المللی کِی از روی منطقه ی شما می گذرد. نمونه خط پایانگر برای زمین: * لحظه غروب از فضا این گونه است

Maruti Suzuki to sharpen rural focus after Q4 earnings top forecasts

A worker is reflected on the body of a Maruti Suzuki car as he locks the door of another car at a Maruti Suzuki stockyard on the outskirts of AhmedabadBy Aditi Shah NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Maruti Suzuki India Ltd, the country's top-selling car maker, plans to push deeper into smaller towns and villages to increase sales, its chairman said on Monday, after the company reported a forecast-beating rise in quarterly net profit. Maruti expects its push into rural areas will help expand its market share at a time when competition in bigger cities is intensifying, with several global car makers launching affordable, entry-level cars, the company's mainstay. The group plans to increase its presence to 150,000 villages by end-March 2016 from 125,000 despite a weak rural economy, R.C. Bhargava told reporters. Maruti reported a 61 percent increase in net profit for the quarter ended March 31 to 12.84 billion rupees, helped by higher sales, lower material costs and royalty payments, and a weaker yen.

Qatar Navigation warns of challenging 2015
* Q1 net profit 365 mln riyals vs 349 mln riyals year ago * Investment business earnings decline 31 pct * Chairman warns of "challenging" year (Adds detail, context) DUBAI, April 27 (Reuters) - Qatar Navigation (Milaha) warned of a challenging 2015 as conditions in its offshore business remained weak and its investment business was exposed to instability in local equity markets. "While we hope to maintain the momentum, we know that general market conditions for our offshore segment are weakening, and that our capital segment is heavily tied to uncertainties in the local equity market," said chairman Sheikh Ali bin Jassim Al-Thani. Milaha was also hit during the quarter by a 31 percent year on year decline in earnings from Milaha Capital, which suffered due to volatility on the Qatar stock market, according to a statement. Like other Gulf markets, Qatar's exchange has been buffeted this year by low oil prices, although a recent recovery has helped to lift stocks.

Wall Street analysts had said Mylan might be looking for $90 to $95 per share and an increased cash component. Coury said in the letter, which described Teva's culture as "dysfunctional," that Teva's stock was an unacceptable currency because it had underperformed its peers, including Mylan, over the last three years. Mylan said it remained committed to its $31 billion offer for Perrigo, which has been rejected.

VW investors hope Piech exit may usher in change

Piech, chairman of the supervisory board of Volkswagen, is pictured during a welcoming ceremony at the plant of German carmaker Volkswagen in WolfsburgInvestors hope that Volkswagen will be able to revive profitability at its core division, cure underperformance overseas and bury lingering plans for acquisitions after the resignation of Chairman Ferdinand Piech. Piech, the mastermind of VW's global expansion and a towering figure at the German group for more than two decades, stepped down on Saturday after losing a showdown he had provoked with Chief Executive Martin Winterkorn. Almost 80 percent of VW investors expect the carmaker's stock market value to increase after Piech's departure as it may help unlock greater earnings potential at the 12-brand group, a survey by advisory firm Evercore ISI showed. The exit of Piech, who spearheaded VW's campaign to make everything from motorcycles to 40-tonne trucks, also curbs the risk of purchases while VW is cutting billions of euros of costs at its core brand and revamping operations, Evercore ISI said.

Investors this week will also be closely watching the results of the two-day U.S. Federal Reserve meeting, starting Tuesday, for clues on when interest rates could be hiked.

The Nasdaq hit a intraday high of 5119.828, the closest it has reached to its record high of 5132.52, hit in March 2000.

Investors question Deutsche Bank's overhaul

Jain and Fitschen, co-CEOs of Deutsche Bank, speak at a news conference in FrankfurtDeutsche Bank's (DBKGn.DE) biggest strategic overhaul under co-chief executives Anshu Jain and Juergen Fitschen got a thumbs down from investors on Monday who judged it too little too late. Germany's flagship lender has trailed rivals under the tenure of Jain and Fitschen who despite the reverberations from the financial crisis stuck to an expensive universal banking model offering everything from mortgages in Germany to derivatives in London. Faced with tough regulations, weak markets and mounting legal bills from misconduct settlements, Deutsche is now following rivals such as UBS (UBSN.VX) and Barclays (BARC.L) in axing unprofitable business lines to boost earnings and shore up its balance sheet. After four months of deliberations, Jain and Fitschen have decided to cut up to 150 billion euros in investment bank assets, sell their Postbank (DPBGn.DE) retail division via a stock market listing by the end of 2016 and invest more in equities trading and wealth management.

SEC's stock market reform club locks out retail brokers

To match Special Report SEC/INVESTIGATIONSBy John McCrank NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is convening a group of financial industry veterans for the first time next month to consider stock market reforms, but one group will be conspicuously absent: retail brokerages. The SEC's 17-member Market Structure Advisory Committee includes representatives of fund companies, an exchange, off-exchange trading venues, dealers, and academia, among others. The group, which meets four times a year, will review old rules, and advise the SEC on a range of new regulations designed to make sure the market is as stable and fair as possible. Still, given that the SEC has said its main priority is to protect retail investors, the omission of retail brokers raises questions, because without their point of view the panel may recommend changes that favor institutional investors, analysts said.
