این سالی است که میرحسین موسوی در ایران نخست وزیر است و سید علی خامنه ای رئیس جمهور و آیت الله خمینی رهبر ایران. این یکی از ماجراهایی است که باعث اعتراض آن زمان نخست وزیر وقت می شود و در بالاترین سطوح کشور تنش سیاسی ایجاد می کند و در پی آن موجب دخالت مستقیم آیت الله خمینی می شود و به ظاهر آتش اختلاف ها خاموش می شود، اما گدازه های آن زیر خاکستر می ماند تا دو دهه بعد، که بار دیگر در انتخابات سال ٨٨ شعله ور گردد. در آن سال قرعه به نام من و یکی از دوستان همکار در خبرگزاری جمهوری اسلامی (ایرنا) افتاد تا به عنوان خبرنگار برای پوشش اخبار و گزارش های مراسم حج به عربستان سفر کنیم، اما طبق معمول مقام های سعودی روی خوش به روزنامه نگاران نشان نمی دادند و از این رو در آخرین ساعات، در شرایطی که تنها چند ساعتی به آخرین پروازهای تهران-ـ جده باقی مانده بود، روادید سفر ما دو نفر را صادر کردند؛ سفری استثنایی و پرهیاهو. غروب که آخرین پرواز ایران ایر به عربستان در فرودگاه بین المللی جده نشست و پس از بازرسی های شدید و طولانی وارد محل اسکان موقت زوار کشورهای مختلف شدیم برای عزیمت به سوی مکه و مدینه، دشداشه نخریده و لباس عوض نکرده، یکی از همکاران مستعفی خبرگزاری به من نزدیک شد و خبر آورد که "تمام زوار یک گروه نجف آبادی به دلیلی نامعلوم دستگیر و در داخل فرودگاه در شرایط بسیار بد حبس شده اند." پرس و جوها موید این رویداد بود، اما هیچ مقام رسمی عربستان حاضر نبود در مورد آن سخن بگوید و رسانه های رسمی سعودی نیز طبق دستور، سیاست سکوت را دنبال می کردند. وضعیت ارتباطی با خارج هم به گونه ای بود که نمی شد از فرودگاه با ایران تماس تلفنی داشت و خبر را مخابره کرد یا اطلاعات محتمل را از دفتر مرکزی در تهران دریافت کرد. راه آخر این بود که با وجود ممنوعیت خروج از فرودگاه و ورود به شهر جده، خود را به این شهر توریستی برسانیم و به تلفن بین المللی دسترسی پیدا کنیم. پنهان شدن در خودروی حامل شام و مواد غذایی مسوولان دولتی ایران مستقر در فرودگاه، تنها راه موجود برای رفتن به شهر بود و به احتمال زیاد از خیر مراسم حج گذشتن. این کاری بود که با موفقیت انجام شد. تا به جده برسیم و از محلی مناسب با دفتر تهران تماس بگیریم، روز اول سفر به پایان رسیده بود و بامداد روز بعد بود و شروع به کار شیفت شب خبرگزاری به سردبیری "احمد. خ". از سر اتفاق احمد آن زمان روزها نیز در دفتر نخست وزیر وقت کار می کرد و به صورت شبانه روزی دسترسی مستقیمی به میرحسین موسوی داشت. پیامد مخابره ی خبر پخش آن در بخش ساعت شش رادیو بود و اعلام این موضوع که دولت عربستان به دلایل نامعلوم تعدادی از زوار ایرانی را دستگیر کرده است. تازه در پی خوانده شدن این خبر بود که سکوت رسانه های رسمی سعودی شکسته و اعلام شد که افراد دستگیر شده با خود مواد منفجره حمل می کرده اند و آن ها را در ساک های خود جاسازی کرده بودند؛ ادعایی شگفتی آور، آن هم در مورد زواری روستایی یا شهرستانی که بسیاری از آنان بالای پنجاه سال سن داشتند و افراد جوان در میان آن ها اندک بود.

اصل بنیادین ACT که بوسیله 20 سال پژوهش درباره ماهیت شناخت آدمی حمایت می شود این است : راهکارهای مشکل گشایی مبتنی بر عقل سلیم وقتی که برای تجارب درونی به کار می روند اغلب تبدیل به تله می شوند. در واقع پژوهش ما نشان می دهد که مشکل گشایی آدمی خود شدیدتر شدن رنج او را به ارمغان می آورد.

:: اهواز در گذر تاریخ : نمایشگاهی به زبان عربی و دغدغه میهن پرستان
فشرده ای از آنچه در این جستار هشدار دهنده می خوانید: * درباره تاریخ خوزستان و پیوند همیشگی این سرزمین با ایران هیچ چیزی به مخاطب ارایه نشد. * رویکرد کلی نمایشگاه نه تنها ملی نبود بلکه کاملا قومی بود و به همین دلیل کوچکترین اشاره ای به تعلق همیشگی و تاریخی خوزستان و طبیعتا اهواز (به عنوان یک شهر) به ایرانزمین نشده بود * عربِ خوزستانی در زیر بمباران تبلیغاتی کشورهای منطقه، کم‌کاری مسوولین و ضعف دولت در مسایل فرهنگی و اقتصادی نمی‌تواند رابطه خود با ایران را پیدا کند و بین هویت قومی و ملی خود دچار سردرگمی شده است. * این نوع حرکت‌های مشکوک و ناصحیح و یا احیانا ناآگاهانه هیچ دستاوردی برای همبستگی ملی در خوزستان نخواهد داشت و بیشتر بر آتش تفرقه می‌دمد. * چرا در این نمایشگاه از خوزستان با عنوان “الاهواز” نام برده شده است؟ گروه های تجزیه طلب پان عرب نام این بخش از ایران را عربستان و یا اقلیم اهواز- البته با بند واژه یا حرف”ح” و به صورت “الاحواز”- می‌نامند.

به گزارش خبرنگار مهر، پس از آنكه علي كفاشيان و مديران باشگاه ها روز دوشنبه با حضور در دفتر عزت الله ضرغامي ديداري صميمي با رئيس رسانه ملي را برگزار كردند اين شائبه به وجود آمد كه ديدارهاي اين هفته ليگ برتر ،پس از يك هفته تاخير مجددا از تلويزيون پخش مي شود. اما رئيس فدراسيون فوتبال چهارشنبه شب در پايان نشست با اعضاي هيات رئيسه فدراسيون صريحا عنوان كرد به هيچ عنوان بازي هاي اين هفته ليگ برتر اجازه پخش از سيما را ندارند. علي كفاشيان مدعي شد در ديدار با ضرغامي فقط داستان بين آنها رد و بدل شد و هيچ صحبت جدي اي درباره حل اين مشكل صورت نپذيرفت. به اين ترتيب رئيس فدراسيون خطاب به هواداراني كه مايل به ديدن بازي تيم هاي محبوب خود هستند پيشنهاد كرد حتما به ورزشگاه بروند چون خبري از پخش مستقيم نخواهد بود.

انتشار هر اثر تازه ای از"پاتریک مودیانو" یک رویداد مهم فرهنگی در فضای ادبی فرانسه محسوب میشود. نه فقط به دلیل شخصیت برجسته ادبی او، بلکه برای آنکه هر یک از آثار ادبی "پاتریک مودیانو" همانند قطعات یک "پازل" است. قطعاتی که به یکدیگر شباهت دارند، ولی در عین حال با هم فرق دارند. اثر تازه مودیانو: " برای آنکه توی محله گم نشوی"، قطعه دیگری است از این "پازل" که خواننده را بیش از پیش با تصویردرونی او پیوند میزند.تصویری که از در هم تنیدن جادویی "خیال" و "واقعیت" در فضایی مه آلود در رمان های او تبلور مییابد.

:: در حالیکه افکار عمومی متوجه نبرد در کوبانی است،رژیم بشاراسد اردوگاه پناهندگان جنگی را بمباران کرد
دولت آمریکا می‌گوید از بمباران یکی از اردوگاه‌های پناهندگان سوری شوکه شده و آن را اقدامی "بربرمنشانه" می‌داند. بنابر این گزارش، نیروی هوایی رژیم اسد دو بمب بشکه‌ای به اردوگاه "عابدین" در نزدیکی روستای "هبیت" واقع در استان حلب فروریخته‌اند. کسانی که در این اردوگاه زندگی می‌کنند، آوارگان جنگ داخلی سوریه از استان "حماء" در مرکز سوریه هستند.در این بمباران دست‌کم ۱۰ نفر کشته و دهها نفر دیگر زخمی شده‌اند‌.سخنگوی وزارت خارجه آمریکا تاکید کرد که رهبری رژیم سوریه به خاطر این اقدام باید حساب پس دهد. بمب‌های بشکه‌ای که نیروی هوایی رژیم اسد از آنها در جنگ داخلی سوریه استفاده می‌کند، بشکه‌های دست‌ساز حاوی مواد منفجره تی ان تی با مخلوطی از قطعات فلزی مانند میخ و براده‌های آهن است . این بشکه‌ها پس از انفجار در شعاعی وسیع به ترکش‌های مرگبار تبدیل می‌شوند و تلفات انسانی زیاد و تخریب گسترده‌ای برجای می‌گذارند. بنابر این گزارش، نیروی هوایی رژیم اسد دو بمب بشکه‌ای به اردوگاه "عابدین" در نزدیکی روستای "هبیت" واقع در استان حلب فروریخته‌اند. کسانی که در این اردوگاه زندگی می‌کنند، آوارگان جنگ داخلی سوریه از استان "حماء" در مرکز سوریه هستند.

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's SoftBank sets sights on America Movil assets - WSJ

SoftBank Corp.

SoftBank recently asked Sprint Corp Chief Executive Marcelo Claure to gather information on the assets that America Movil is planning to sell, sources told the paper. Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim's America Movil said in July it would spin off its telecoms towers and sell assets to reach a market share below the 50 percent threshold amid a regulatory crackdown in its home market, Mexico. Sources told the Journal that Softbank was valuing the assets at around $10 billion, while Bank of America analysts have estimated the assets could be worth $15 billion.

The 30 Most Influential LGBT People In Tech

The 30 Most Influential LGBT People In TechAP Apple CEO Tim Cook on Thursday publicly acknowledged he is gay, but his sexual orientation has long been known in the tech community and beyond. In fact, Business Insider named Cook as the most important LGBT person in tech back in December 2013. In light of Cook’s coming-out, we are re-running our list of the most important LGBT people in tech. (We’ve also decided against ranking this list.) As Business Insider’s Jim Edwards has noted, it’s unfortunate that some famous, successful gay people like Cook might feel pressured to talk about their personal lives while straight CEOs can maintain their privacy. Still, it takes courage to give up that privacy in order to inspire others to be more open or insist on equality for gays. Cathy Brooks Cathy Brooks, a lesbian activist, previously worked at Seesmic and founded a digital marketing firm. She also hosts a podcast about tech/society. But Brooks dropped her career to pursue her passion for dogs back in February 2013. She opened up a private dog park and training academy for dogs in Las Vegas and founded The Hydrant Club, a place for cool canines to “romp and learn.” Lisa Brummel Lisa Brummel has been with Microsoft ever since she graduated from college in 1989. Brummel has held a variety of positions at the tech giant, but has since become the executive vice president of human resources. Brummel is the one who informed employees that Microsoft would axe its controversial stack-ranking system — a system that hurt morale by turning teammates into competitors.  Tim Cook Apple CEO Tim Cook is the most powerful gay man in technology. Even before he came out publicly on Thursday, Cook spoke out about gay rights and discrimination.  “Now is the time to write these basic principles of human dignity into the book of law,” Cook said in his acceptance speech for a lifetime achievement award from Auburn University. Last year, Cook wrote an open letter in The Wall Street Journal encouraging Congress to pass a law that would provide equal rights to gay and lesbian employees.  Since taking charge of Apple in 2011, Cook has led Apple through significant product upgrades like the iPhone 5S, iPad Air, and iOS 7.  Steve Demeter Steve Demeter is the genius behind the iPhone’s first mega hit game, Trism. Demeter launched Trism in July 2008 at the same time of the App Store. In its first two months, Trism brought in $250,000.     Nick Denton Nick Denton is the mastermind behind Gawker Media, the online publishing network behind sites like Valleywag, Deadspin, Jezebel, Kinja, and Lifehacker.  Ray Everett Ray Everett is director of product management and principal consultant at TRUSTe, a privacy management services provider. Previously, he served as director of advertising and privacy at Yahoo, where he made sure Yahoo’s privacy promises held up. Amy Errett Amy Errett, the CEO and co-founder of Madison Reed, has had a varied career. Before creating the at-home hair color startup, she held management positions at E*Trade, was CEO of lifestyle company Olivia, and general partner at VC firm Maveron.  Ina Fried Ina Fried, an award-winning journalist currently for AllThingsD, has covered the tech industry since 2000. She’s held positions at CNET, where she covered Microsoft and Apple.  Christy Gaughan Genentech is one of the most innovative biotech companies out there, and a lot of that is thanks to Christy Gaughan, its director of marketing science.  Gaughan has also served as Genentech’s LGBT employee group co-chair. Jason Goldberg Jason Goldberg, CEO and founder of Fab and Hem, is a force to be reckoned with in the startup industry. Fab was roiled by pivots and layoffs last year, but Goldberg still raised $165 million in new funding. Fab was Goldberg’s third startup, the previous two being Socialmedian and Jobster. Jon Hall Jon Hall, sometimes also referred to as “maddog,” is the executive director of Linux International, the tech nonprofit organization. In 2012, he was inspired to publicly come out in honor of the 100th anniversary of Alan Turing.  Hall is a bit of a legend in the Linux community. He’s been the executive director of Linux International for roughly 18 years and has been in the computer industry since 1969.  Chris Hughes Chris Hughes, a Facebook co-founder, left the social network to join the Obama campaign in 2007. He later purchased The New Republic and serves as its “Editor in Chief.”  Hughes was also one of the first people to use the same-sex marriage icon on Facebook after marrying his partner, Sean Elridge, back in July.  David Lerman David Lerman is the Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of Say Media, the company behind ReadWrite, Reodelista, Dogster, xoJane, and other media publications. He previously co-founded production company MediaLiquid.  Brad O’Farrell Brad O’Farrell is the guy behind the insanely successful crowdfunded board game called Story War. It’s kind of like Apples to Apples meets Pokemon and Dungeons and Dragons.   In March 2013, the game blew past its Kickstarter goal of $20,000 with more than 7,000 backers pledging $363,254. O’Farrell is also the creator of The Keyboard Cat. Chuck Osborn Chuck Osborn is a long-time gaming expert who’s managing editor at IGN, a leading online media publication focused on gaming.  Prior to joining IGN, Osborn wrote for publications like PCXL, PC Gamer, and NVISION.  Keith Rabois Keith Rabois, the former chief operating officer at payments startup Square, joined Khosla Ventures last year as a partner. Rabois was an early leader at PayPal during its eventual sale to eBay. Before becoming a VC, Rabois was a top angel investor in Silicon Valley. Jeff Ragovin A few years after starting Buddy Media with Mike and Kass Lazerow, the company sold to enterprise industry giant Salesforce. Today, Ragovin is chief strategy officer of the Salesforce Marketing Cloud, where he’s in charge of the company’s social marketing solutions.  Ragovin is also involved with StartOut, a nonprofit organization to fuel LGBT entrepreneurship.  Tom Rielly Tom Rielly is director of partnerships at Ted Conferences, where he manages corporate partnerships. He was previously the founder and CEO of PlanetOut. Kane Sarhan In 2012, Kane Sarhan teamed up with Shaila Ittycheria to launch Enstitute, an on-the-job alternative to attending college. Enstitute helps place aspiring entrepreneurs in apprenticeship-like programs. Enstitute places its students at startups like Thrillist, Tracks, and Bitly. Halfway through its pilot program in 2012, 70% of students received preliminary full-time offers for permanent jobs. Prior to co-founding Enstitute, Sarhan worked as the creative director at hot New York-based startup LocalResponse.  Ron Shuman Ron Shuman joined Tesla, one of the most innovative companies of our time, in November 2013 to head up its HR department where he is responsible for things like recruiting and employee retention. Darrell Silver Darrell Silver, an entrepreneur whose first company Perpetually sold to Dell, is back with a startup called Thinkful. Thinkful is an online school that offers one-on-one education in the programming language Python and front-end Web development.  Thinkful is part of a new generation of productivity tools, Microsoft former President of Windows Steven Sinofsky has said.  Joel Simkhai Joel Simkahi is the brains behind one of the hottest dating apps for gay men, Grindr.  Grindr first gained popularity in 2009 and has been downloaded millions of times. Megan Smith Megan Smith is currently chief technology officer of the United States. Previously, she served as a vice president at Google[x] and was one of the masterminds behind Google’s “moonshot” ideas and products. Moonshot ideas need to tackle a big problem, require a breakthrough in technology, and actually offer a solution.  Some examples of moonshot projects include Google’s self-driving cars and its balloon-powered Internet initiative, Project Loon.  Before becoming VP of Google [x], Smith oversaw biz dev at Google’s philanthropic wing, DotOrg. Darren Spedale Darren Spedale is the founder of FamilyByDesign and StartOut, a national nonprofit dedicated to fueling LGBT entrepreneurship. Back in 2010, Spedale rang the opening bell on the New York Stock Exchange on behalf of StartOut.  Sara Sperling Sara Sperling is currently director of human resources at Snapchat. Previously, she was at Facebook.  Sperling first came out in college, while studying at the University of California Irvine. She joined Facebook in 2010. Kara Swisher Kara Swisher is one of the best tech journalists in the world. She’s known for her solid reporting and scoop after scoop after scoop.  She previously ran tech site AllThingsD alongside Walt Mossberg and founded re/code this year. 4. Peter Thiel Peter Thiel, famous for being Facebook‘s first investor and the co-founder and former CEO of PayPal, is the brains behind the Thiel Foundation. As part of the two-year fellowship, 20 teenagers receive $100,000 to drop out of college and start a company.  As both a VC and entrepreneur, Thiel has been involved with companies like Palantir Technologies, Founders Fund, and Facebook, where Thiel was the social network’s first outside investor and director. Thiel is also the founder and president of Clarium Capital. Lorenzo Thione In his early 20s, Thione launched his first company, Powerset, a search engine startup. That company eventually sold to Microsoft for about $100 million, where it ultimately became part of the tech giant’s Bing search engine.  He’s currently chief executive officer at the Social Edge, according to his LinkedIn profile.
