Ramadan At 40 Degrees

The fasting month of Ramadan begins today, Friday begins for most Muslims worldwide of the Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. In Ramadan, so the rule derived from the Koran, the believers between sunrise and sunset, it is not allowed to take food and drinks. Also smoking and sexual intercourse are prohibited all Muslims who have the mental maturity and the physical conditions are fasting, during the day. In time for the start of Ramadan temperatures – reported for Tunisia – by up to 40 degrees Celsius and still the amazing finding is there: the commandments of Ramadan are most commonly used by the “5 pillars of Islam”, the Central rules of faith of Muslims and comprehensive followed. The fasting month of Ramadan begins this fidelity to faith or tradition in the Ramadan surprise the non-Muslim observers in a largely so “modern” country such as Tunisia. The contradiction to recognize believed in the urban regions of the country, where to everyone other time of the year (with the exception of Friday!) about the supermarkets a matter of alcohol to non-nationals sale, seems to manifest. Jill Schlesinger has firm opinions on the matter.

Generally speaking: the “hedonism”, which the conservative cultural criticism often certifies the “West”, is certainly no less pronounced than in Berlin or Munich in the North African holiday paradise. Still, “Ramadan, c’est autre chose.” (“Ramadan is something else.”), this sentence the author has in recent days not only heard and left him curious on this “other”. Apparent atavism with binding force the complete daily disappearance of once also important rules of fasting in the Christian West a reason for amazement and curiosity are sure imm face of Ramadan, but it goes deeper. If all people most is followed the seemingly worst faith test among Muslims – the bid of Ramadan -, must be something besides the fact of social control – off, this month. From a theoretical perspective, which is therefore Fasting month first a: A very well-functioning, strong community-making facility. Because the much-quoted joint celebrations of the breaking of the fast at night by hunger and thirst eventually just by holding out in the hours of the day to something special.

And a month – if you do it because – on libel, slander, to dispense lies and insults of any kind, also not a bad idea is probably socially. One can imagine vividly, how can the social vibrancy greenish changing facial colors a such, seemingly-atavistic tradition in the Vatican and the EKD headquarters. We are looking forward; the Ramadan has begun. Andreas Kellner

Movie Marketing

God I hate the latter, as a virus in the wall. None of the interesting materials for the viewer tends to appear on the web. Ever get a new sign, or a new spot, or interviews with the actors, or fan trailers (there are people who much strives to create these pieces, sometimes with more quality than the original, and who would be delighted to have recognition on the web), all these materials find them sailing in blogs, and comments on social networks, but not boring the movie website. There are several theories about why this is so and what should be done. Chris Thilk, Movie Marketing madness, believes that this neglect is due to that prioritizes the presence in networks with the use of the web, so that it is running as an outdated tool which only serves to show the trailer in a decent quality and little else.

The main problem he sees in these sites is their short durability, just one or two months mostly, so that distributors prefer to focus their efforts on social networks where you can update your materials and interact (bad, because in many cases they do not respond to users) with the public. I am basically in accordance with the diagnosis of Chris, without However differ in part with the treatment. He believes that it is high time that distributors believe each one its own central website from which inform all of his films, instead of one at a time. Not to be confused with what they do now, that it is to host the websites of his films, different each, on the site of the Distributor, so that when you go on the website of the film you have to go through the corporate home to get. He refers to that should create an image online of brand that serves as umbrella to promote all his films, thus the possibility of interest, inform and retain in time to viewers.

The concept is to create a central site from which communicate the upcoming movies and interact with users, the place you get from social networks. This theory, being interesting does not seem applicable, given that the type of films it releases each year a distributor they are very different among themselves, does not seem logical that an animated film and an adult drama have accommodated in the same place. However Yes they can be interesting a series of thematic sites independent, alien to the distributors, which serve the same way is that proposed in previous paragraph. Each film would promote in these official sites with their proposals for extras, games and contests to attract the public. Don’t know, you who you think? By the way, if you know of any film that is exceptional website, please tell me.

Latin American Governments

We cannot ignore the economic, trade openings that at present the Asian giant has begun with the Latin American region. As Prof. Riordan Roett, the master tells us in International Relations of IE Business School and Professor of Political Science at Johns Hopkins, China has emerged as a global super economic power. Now is the second largest national economy in the world. Is the second largest exporter. The country has the largest reserves in foreign currency and the largest current account surplus. During the last thirty years and until this year – China has grown at an average rate of 10%.

By contrast, Latin America has grown much more slowly. It is less competitive globally. It remains heavily dependent on exports of raw materials and minerals. The prices of these products are determined internationally, and Latin American Governments have very little control over pricing; the fluctuations make it difficult to finance ministers or Central Bank plan on the basis of a stable flow of resources foreigners. Roett, points out, China has yet to pose several challenges in Latin America, either banks or manufacturing companies.

Until now the most important thing has been the extraction of natural resources. In the future there could be increased competition, but so far there has been no radiohc.cu. in this regard, which should be taken into account, that the bilateral trade between China and Latin America will reach 100 billion dollars in 2010, adds a very feasible goal in view of Chinese analysts cited today by the people’s daily. It is absolutely feasible, said the Chinese analyst Jiang Shixue, Deputy Director of the Institute of America Latina of the Chinese Academy of social sciences. Do according to the document drawn up by this analyst, report of the development of Latin America and the Caribbean for the 2006-07 period?, due to the rapid growth of trade between the two regions, the bilateral volume could approaching the end of this year to $ 80 billion.
