Forever Under Construction

Month 3

Posted in Blogosphere, Iran, Personal by homeyra on January 2, 2007

I have posted many articles about Iran, Iranians or half Iranians. I will take care of 1/4 Iranians later.

It is sort of therapeutic. Many Iranians don’t have time to follow some of the news presented here, such as my own brother, Alibaba the biggest fan of this blog. As a busy North American, he simply does not have the time. The good side of all his activities is whenever I am in a sort of mess he volunteers to the rescue🙂

Speaking of which this month I had a few posts about philanthropic organizations. The Nobel Peace Prize 2006, Camila’s kidsco and Culturekicks. It really doesn’t cost anyone to find some time within his schedule to do something to help others. I have always been skeptical about those who have expounded big theories on the future of humanity but don’t find five minutes to do something practical.

And thanks to Proggiemuslima, this will take only one minute.

To name a few interesting organizations with consistent work in Iran:

Mahak providing care to kids affected by cancer. Their aim is that no child in Iran diagnosed with cancer has to go without treatment because of lack of money.

Behnam Daheshpour Cancer Institute named after its founder, a teenage boy afflicted by cancer, who spent the last years of his life creating this institute and equipped it to treat cancer patients and assist their families for free.

Popli Khalatbari Charitable foundation and an interesting article here.

I won’t be that nice all the time! Here are the Veterans for Peace to wake up Agent 99 and Delaram 🙂

C & A was the top post of the month, followed by Xmas in England, thanks Shirin! Persian or Farsi, again and Camila were next.

As Bluebear2 wrote, to put things into perspective don’t forget to have a look at miniature earth and the worldometers – real time world statistics.

Thanks to Loopy, I learned that Shahnameh is a best seller in the US.

Bloggers in Iran have two month to register. Thanks to kamangir, here is a translation of the new law.

For Persian speakers, Jomhour is a very informative and well written blog from Ahvaz, and here is the blog of a mountain lover.

If you speak Norwegian and you want to learn about Uganda, this is the place to go. If any of you are in, let’s say Sydney or Sacramento, you can check about local Iranian events here and here, and learn that no future events are scheduled at this time 🙂

Update! Thanks to AA, Time 25 Top Ten List 2006

    🙂 Dear BB2 there is also this new law over here, see above. I am not sure if I want to comply. Have to wait and see.

    Item a. of the introduction sure doesn’t mesh with the rest of it.

    This type of control is what Bush would love to have and has tried hard to get. Just out today is another article on his signing statements in which he reversed a privacy bill for the Postal Service claiming he has the right to open and examine our mail.

    Item n. of the regulations could wipe me off your blog roll. 😦

    The monkeys are loose!

    Yes, they are! But some of them are so stylish!!
    For the time being the above “law” has changed, and anyblog.com is spared. Those with a domain should register.
