#Justice4Zainab – Stand Up Against Child Sexual Abuse

The Human Lens

Today we mourn the abrupt and chilling end of little Tainub Ansari that leaves many questions on the existing cruel indifference in our society on rape and child sexual abuse. A country where the numbers of such incidents keep rising; according to Sahil a non nongovernmental organization 11 cases of child sexual abuse are reported on a daily basis. 

What happened with little Zainub is a reminder to not only Pakistan but South Asia where sexual violence against girls and women in a norm accepted in society and in certain instances also having cultural approvals.

 is now trending, with every one demanding justice but still my question remains the same. Why we cannot protect our children and young people from falling victims to pedophiles, rapists and molesters? How many more little girls have to die in order for our conscience to wake up. When will we ever think along…

Lights in a Storm

Friendly Fairy Tales


When storms churn surf
and flood waters rise,
beacons of light
are as vital as breath.

The future and Islam.

Try to get it!

People in general are always worried about tomorrow…they are always scared about their future…

Islam gives us a simple way to think about the future…a way that makes us happier and less worried about the comming moments.

Allah says in Al Hadid Surah(the iron)
No misfortune can happen on earth or in your souls but is recorded in a decree before We bring it into existence: That is truly easy for Allah:

22. مَا أَصَابَ مِن مُّصِيبَةٍ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلَا فِي أَنفُسِكُمْ إِلَّا فِي كِتَابٍ مِّن قَبْلِ أَن نَّبْرَأَهَا إِنَّ ذَلِكَ عَلَى اللَّهِ يَسِيرٌ

In order that ye may not despair over matters that pass you by, nor exult over favours bestowed upon you. For Allah loveth not any vainglorious boaster,-

23. لِّكَيْلَا تَأْسَوْا عَلَى مَا فَاتَكُمْ وَلَا تَفْرَحُوا بِمَا آتَاكُمْ وَاللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ كُلَّ مُخْتَالٍ فَخُورٍ

Have a good day.

Memoirs of a Hayseed Physicist by Peter Martel


Part 42:
My First University:
My Master’s work was completed in one year. The objective of the research was to perfect a method for measuring the conductivity of metals at liquid helium temperatures in order to determine their purity. At very low temperatures effects due to vibrations of the metal atoms are negligible, and most of the conductivity is a function of any impurities that are present…. In the course of the work, relaxation oscillations were discovered, which were reported later on in Professor Brian Pippard’s book: The Physics of Vibrations, published in 1978. A famous professor at Cambridge, Pippard had recently been knighted. When I had to respond to his request to cite my Master’s work, I was at a loss as to how to address him.
