:: نهی از منکر با اسید کلریدریک
«مساله حجاب دیگر از حد تذکر گذشته است و برای مقابله با بدحجابی باید جدیت به خرج داد و از نیروی قهریه استفاده کرد.» این سخنانی بود که چندی پیش یوسف طباطبایی‌نژاد امام جمعه اصفهان در همایش حجاب و عاشورا در حضور برخی از افراد نزدیک به حزب‌الله بیان کرد. گروهی که به گواه آمار تاکنون بالاترین میزان آزار و اذیت زنان در کشور را به دلیل آنچه که بدحجابی می‌خوانند داشته است.

سرگرمی :: فتواهاي شگفت انگیز آیت الله ها در تاریخ و دلايل ابطال آنها
- استفاده از آب لوله کشی حرام وغیرشرعی است. علت: چون کر نیست! البته بعد فهمیدند چون جاری است، پس حرام نیست. - استفاده از دوش حمام، حرام و غیرشرعی است. علت: امکان غسل ارتماسی با آن وجود ندارد! البته چون زور حکومت پهلوی برای رعایت بهداشت چربید، مجبور شدند غسل ترتیبی را اختراع کنند و دوش ازحرام بودن درآمد. - استفاده از لامپ برق حرام و غیرشرعی است. علت: به سبب امکان انجام شب نشینی های طولانی، باعث می شود که مومنین، از نماز صبح غافل شوند! البته بعدها، با پول هنگفتی که حاج امین الضرب، صاحب کارخانه برق به علما داد برق حلال شد! اما کارخانه برق مشهد در سال 1911 میلادی به تحریک علما و روسها توسط ملت سلحشور مشهد در آتش سوخت. - استفاده از کله قند، حرام و غیرشرعی است. (افراطیون مذهبی شایعه ساخته بودند از استخوان مردگان الک شده و کله قند روسی درست می شود!!) علت: نپرداختن وجوه شرعی، توسط واردکننده قند! "پر واضح است که پرداخت وجوهات، موجب گردید تا قند حلال گردد، البته به این شرط که قبل از خوردن، آن را در چای غسل کنند". - استفاده از ماشین لباسشویی حرام و غیرشرعی است. علت: لباس های نجس، لباس های پاک را نجس می کنند! -در سال 1342 خورشیدی در جریان انقلاب سپید علما گفتند رأی دادن بانوان خلاف شرع است ولی در سال 1358 خورشیدی حلال شد! علت: میزان رأی بیشتر برای تأیید جمهوری اسلامی. -علما ساخت راه آهن را در دوره ناصری خلاف شرع و حرام بود علت: ملاعلی کنی آن را راه تسلط کفار می دانست. سرانجام زور رضاشاه و مشروطه خواهان بیشتر شد لذا حلال شد. -استفاده از ویدئو حرام و غیر شرعی بود. علت: چون افکار پاک ملت سلحشور با دیدن فیلمهای مستهجن خراب می شد. با ازدیاد آن و آمدن ماهواره و نت دیگر این حرام حلال شد.

اسیدپاشی به صورت زنان در شهر اصفهان اگر چه مورد تایید مقام‌های مسئول قرار گرفته اما هیچ مقامی به صورت رسمی ارتباط این موضوع با حجاب را تایید نکرد. ایرنا، خبرگزاری رسمی جمهوری اسلامی نوشته است که پیش از اسیدپاشی، زنان اصفهانی پیامک‌های تلفنی دریافت کرده بودند که در آن نوشته شده بود تنها راه نجات زاینده‌رود از خشک شدن جلوگیری از بدحجابی است. محمد تقی رهبر امام جمعه موقت اصفهان از جمله کسانی بود که پیش از این گفته بود در مورد حجاب باید از تذکر لسانی فراتر رفت. او حالا بعد از ماجرای اسید پاشی سخنانش را در گفت‌وگو با خبرگزاری‌های داخلی تکذیب کرده، به همین دلیل سراغ او رفتم و گفت‌وگویی در همین مورد با او انجام دادم.

Analysis - Wall Street finally turning on Amazon as Bezos magic fades

A zoomed illustration image of a man looking at a computer monitor showing the logo of Amazon is seen in ViennaSAN FRANCISCO/BOSTON (Reuters) - Amazon.com Inc's once fairy-tale ride on Wall Street has hit its most jarring bump yet. Amazon missed expectations across the board - on margins, on its net loss and on revenue. "They're becoming much too distracted in all these other efforts" outside core businesses like online retailing and web services, said Matthew Benkendorf, portfolio manager at Vontobel Asset Management. Benkendorf unloaded his Amazon holdings a year ago and said he would be sceptical of future involvement even if the stock falls further.

With various names due to report next week, including Exxon Mobil, Chevron, ConocoPhillips and National Oilwell Varco, there are hopes that executives will suggest that the fall in oil and share prices has overstated the outlook for these names.

Trading in the shares was later suspended by Spain's stock market regulator. The firm's debut on the Madrid stock exchange in April after a three-year market drought appeared at the time to be a sign of resumed investor appetite for Spanish assets following a severe economic downturn and a European debt crisis. 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.

Airports group Aena delays filing of $10 billion share listing

A passenger carries her belongings at Madrid's Barajas airportBy Julien Toyer and Carlos Ruano MADRID (Reuters) - State-owned Spanish airport operator Aena has postponed filing the prospectus for its planned $10 billion (6.22 billion pounds) stock market listing until next week, an official said on Friday, after the Madrid bourse regulator said it needed more information. The sale of a 49 percent stake in the world's biggest airports operator has been flagged as the largest initial public offering in Europe this year and a litmus test for domestic investor faith in an economic recovery. There is no problem with investor demand," an Aena official told Reuters, adding that the prospectus would be filed next Friday. The group is sticking to its planned stock market debut on Nov. 12, but would have a shorter offering period and roadshow than first envisaged as a result of the one-week delay, he said.

Rebekah Brooks in New York 'explores' job opportunities

Former News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks makes a statement to the media in London(Reuters) - Rebekah Brooks, the former head of News Corp's British newspaper division who was at the centre of a phone hacking scandal, is visiting New York this week, exploring possible jobs, a company spokesman said on Friday. A protege of Murdoch, Brooks has been in meetings at News Corp's headquarters, the publisher of The Wall Street Journal and New York Post, and elsewhere exploring job possibilities, according to the spokesman. Brooks soared through the ranks at News Corp from a junior newsroom position to become chief executive officer of News International, the British publisher of The Sun and The Times, before stepping down in 2011 in the wake of the phone hacking scandal Brooks stood trial in London this summer for illegal conspiracy to hack into phones and authorising illegal payments to public officials.

Google Glass Could Save KFC And Other Fast-Food Companies Millions Of Dollars

Google Glass Could Save KFC And Other Fast-Food Companies Millions Of DollarsReuters Sergey Brin, CEO and co-founder of Google, models Google Glass. Much has been written about how technology could be used to replace humans in the service sector, but a recent USA Today story suggests it can  also save companies money by making workers more efficient. KFC, one of the world’s largest fast-food chains, recently ran a trial in which it trained employees using a software program on Google Glass that could potentially help its parent company, Yum Brands, save millions of dollars in labor costs. The training program was developed by Ankur Gopal, a Kentucky engineer and the CEO of the mobile technology company Interapt. When wearing Google Glass, employees would see a series of on-screen prompts giving them step-by-step directions for tasks like making a sandwich, shutting down a fryer, or closing a store for the night. USA Today reports that Gopal said Yum Brands, which also owns Pizza Hut and Taco Bell, calculated that it could save nearly 2% of its labor costs by adopting his program in their stores. These savings, a result of a faster training process, would come to tens of millions of dollars across the company’s 8,000 locations. A spokesperson for KFC tells Business Insider no such calculation was made and that he could not confirm Gopal’s estimate. “I was one of the guinea pigs, and in less than two hours I was making KFC chicken as if I’d worked there for a long time,” Gopal tells USA Today. The automation of work done by fast-food employees has become an increasingly hot-button topic as workers across the country have pushed the big national restaurant chains to raise their wages to $15 an hour. One line of thinking, summed up by a recent Wall Street Journal editorial, is that if employees don’t want to work for the wages they’re currently being paid, fast-food companies can save themselves the hassle by employing computerized machines to do their jobs, instead. Meanwhile others, like the New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, have said that it would be impossible to replace many fast-food employees because they work in a “common-sense industry” that needs the flexibility only a human can provide at this point in time. It’s unclear whether using Google Glass to make training more efficient would allow companies to cut jobs, or whether it would merely get workers the company was already going to hire up to speed in a shorter period of time.
