I really don't care! I swear, if I listen to this song one more time, I will destroy the device that plays it and regret after ( because the device has no fault). I get it, cool song, bla, bla, but too much of it can drive you crazy. I can't even go to the bathroom without hearing deeesssspaaaaciiiiitoooo... ┻━┻ ︵ヽ(`Д´)ノ︵ ┻━┻

Ayati jan thanx for another 'chuck full of nuggets' submission.

Per religious sectarian history in Islam the ultimate answer would be no and yes.
- No, since the current sectarian conflicts are, to a large extent, a direct result of destabilizing military invasions, and precise works of British soldiers dressed in Arab gear, carrying explosives, more than a few of which were arrested and photographed.
- Yes, in the sense of all the history of Islam and its early tensions, preserved in one form or another up to now. KSA versus IR tensions is more than just a recurring historical tendency.
Caveat here is that Iran and Arabia have had good days before, they could have it again.
Have I ever mentioned "Merchant Capital and Islam"?

Morteza Ravandi in "Social History of Iran," volume 8 or 9, has an account of Shiafication in Tabriz and the 20,000 beheading in the process.

There is also a minor typo on history of the Coup, it say 1952 instead of '53. As usual you also leave out how Mossadegh was not prepared for the coupe and Tudeh ordered by Moscow to back down and retreat. There's an account from Dr. Gholam Hossein Sedighi, Mossadegh's minister of interior, on the day of infamy Mosadegh calls him and asks Sedighi about the mood in the streets, and Sedighi sends his driver for 'reconnaissance!' This was the level of preparedness from the good doctor.
Good doctors actually.
Dr. Sedighi is also the very first sociologist in Iran. And his PhD thesis still relevant.

"Thirty Years' War" of 17th century, in central Europe, is an exemplar of religious sectarian violence, resulting in 8 million casualties.
The current "Thirty Years' War" in our region has been an ugly start for 21st century.

Thanx for sharing the article.
This is a compelling study of high-tech, large-scale manipulation.
Especially useful is its description of how "tools of algorithmic engagement skew our reality."
In the past few years perhaps no one has paid more attention to the utterly destructive role of Algorithms in our daily lives than Cathy O'Neil.

Couple of days ago she had an article about it in the Guardian:

How can we stop algorithms telling lies?
toptopic.com/posts/how-can-we-stop-algorithms-telling-lies-53012

And her book "Weapons of Math Destruction: How Big Data Increases Inequality and Threatens Democracy" treats the subject in great, depressing details!

Sometimes I "really miss" N.P., Sosan Khanom, Demo, Ghorbagheh, Donbakzan, Jerjis,and all other tens of other trolls utilized to sell mullahs line.
But nowadays coming out straight in support of mullahs (like NP used to do back in 2009) isn't working (not as if it did back then either), so now it's all about "Persian Nationalism," "Patriotism," or any other kind of garbage that mullahs' Intelligence Ministry thinks might be useful.

Quite interesting, especially since we have some truly dedicated troll on this website who uses 7 different accounts at the same time in order to Top his own content, overwhelm the website with his political agenda, cyberbully and "outnumber" anyone who disagrees with him, and create the illusion that his opinions are more popular than they actually are. Some topics here are flooded with his content.

Such lowlifes are truly pitiful.

The media loves Trump! Ratings have never been better. The best thing that could happen to any show or network is for Trump to pick a fight with you.

The NBA's TV deal with ESPN and Turner runs through the 2024-25 season and is estimated to be worth a whopping $2.66 billion per year (goo.gl/hcfF1x). This financial windfall has not only enriched the NBA owners but labor as well. NBA players' salaries have steadily gone up and there's no let-up in sight...but is this sustainable?

Given ESPN's financial trajectory I would think that it's unlikely that they, or anyone else, renew/sign a TV deal under existing terms (goo.gl/Z5cu6L). I know that the NBA has diverse revenue sources, but TV rights is a huge part of their income and the catalyst for aggressive rise in salary cap. If I'm not mistaken, league owners and players can opt out of the existing NBA Collective Bargaining Agreement in 2022. If the league pushes for lower salaries, would this lead to another NBA lock-out?

While their next TV contract may not be nearly as lucrative, NBA expansion to Europe and especially China, where the sport is immensely popular, could potentially more than make-up the difference.

Go Wizards! #nbaplayoffs
