This does not mean that programs should not be put in place to encourage and actually assist folks to break the chains of poverty and become self sufficient. Folks from all levels greatly benefit from these programs and I can't help but see the glaring problems that would come from the federal government cutting spending and pulling money out of communities causing real economic harm especially in the name of a balanced federal budget. But they didn't so we all got paid.

Tomorrow, we can have a consensual order entered, Carson said. Know all of the parties are working to try to address any issues that have arisen over the last few days. And Belle have agreed to a new $34.8 million DIP financing agreement. A place far away from the maddening crowd is marked for its exclusivity. You take care of it, love it and do all possible things to make it beautiful. Yes, it is your home, sweet home.

Whether you're thinking of selling your home or looking to refinance, it's important to get the best appraisal value on your <a href=http://colliespetcare.co.uk/>pay day loans</a> home. Prospective homebuyers aren't going to be <a href=http://erotikkaset.com/>payday loans</a> willing to pay more than the appraised value on a home and banks won't want to give loans for more than the true value of your house. Here are 10 things you need to know in order to prepare for your appraisal http://colliespetcare.co.uk/ to get the best results..

<a href=http://madhats.co.uk/>payday loans online</a> Lenders can charge no more than $10 in fees per loan plus 48 percent annual interest. The maximum allowed annual percentage rate for payday loans in Texas is 309 percent, which is significantly higher than that of traditional loans. Law prohibits payday lenders from renewing loans or extending more than one loan to the same borrower at the same time.. <a href=http://tosspots.co.uk/>pay day loans</a>

The example <a href=http://tradebbs.net/>payday loans online</a> she gives involves smoking. Can tell a patient to quit, she says, if you make laws making it hard for adolescents to buy cigarettes and preventing people from smoking inside buildings, you changed a population.

3.)Stay alert to comparable sales near your property that may erode the value of your investment. Granted, there isn't much you can do about this, but your due diligence should be as extensive as possible. Just because your property appraised for $100,000 today does not mean it will appraise for that a few months down the road.

I am a "Muslim", and I do share the logic & doubts stated in this article. My wife who is an Architect, wear hijab and I hate it. I tell her at least don’t do it while she is with me, at first she agreed then become adamant. I have lot of women friends from all walks of life. I don’t see any big difference in terms of morality or good character in my wife compared to others I know. (I do love my wife and she is great!!) , So I ask her what the great deal in covering up. She gives all the above logics mentioned in the article, and I keep quiet. I asked where is it mentioned to cover fully, she quotes from Quran and I disagree, she takes hadith I disagree, finally she say it is what people do so I follow it!! Eventually it boils down to socio, geo political & cultural influence. I grew up in a Muslim town and there were hardly anyone who covered, none in my distant family wore hijab, but now majority do, especially youngsters, more educated some do it as a way to show their unconscious rebelliousness to show the identity
On the other hand the argument in this article is one sided. The author does not consider the same logic to why women is used more in advertising , pornography, prostitution, third page of sun paper (UK), Playboy, cheer leaders , air hostesses etc. Highest number of hits online is for pornographic sites and men are the one looking at it. It is a simple logic because they (women) are attractive to men and they are different to men psychologically, physically and genetically, so there is a huge difference. We hardly ever here men being raped or gang raped why because men do such nasty things they get aroused visually very fast …so and so on plenty to argue. Point is hijab is a cultural identity not Islamic at least that is my argument. Why do nuns cover themselves?
Another point is that there are 2 billion plus so called Muslims (as in quantity not quality wise) globally, and due to strict religious prohibition of gambling, alcohol, use of intoxicants, pornography and exposure of women’s body etc, majority of that 2 billion keep away (due to fear) .So whatever may be the reasons, … in that way it does help to balance the global equilibrium. Imagine the so called 2 billion Muslims (as in quantity), who are presently restricted by their religion in imbibing and enjoying the above pleasures, were to allow all the above unconditionally. The world we live in will be a different place. So the “Musims” by being just “Muslims” play a vital role to maintain that equilibrium. Look at major medical journals and WHO statistics about the bad influence of alcohol, smoking, intoxicants, gambling, prostitution etc, and we certainly don’t want another 2 billion also to add on to that list.
Just my thoughts …..:) Live and let others live happily too, who cares about hijab , cartoons, burnings and scapegoating . If you don’t like don’t wear it , wear bikini and enjoy , let us enjoy too.:)

Islam is sexist. (And so are most religions)
I will advice you to stay away from the more religious people, as they are almost always out there to "protect" you. [Don't forget, they will be the first to point fingers at you if something were to happen to you].

Please try and not submit to all these impositions put on you. Don't let them win.

And if or when you have your own kids, tell them this story. And prevent them from becoming sexist people who don't even know they are sexist.

I like this article. I know this took bravery. People hide behind religion to impose sexist ideas on others. This atricle is awesome, concise and to the point. Bravo!
PS: I live in India and wear a headscard and overcoat while travelling. i started doing it because I thought it would protect me from men. But it doesn't have any effect. They still stare, touch and say disgusting things, of course. Now, I wear it because of the pollution. :) And also, rape isn't that common in India. Anger against rape is common, which is an awesome thing. :)
Best of luck.

This breaks my heart.

The very first thing an infant is able to recognize is a human face.

I don't believe in projecting my Western culture onto others. I'm deeply attached to my own cultural ideas of modesty, but can empathize with other world ideals that range from headscarves to going topless.

That said, as with Apartheid, there is a line that's crossed when some are seen as less human. If there is a more chilling symbol of objectifying, of stripping away humanity, than taking away someone's face, I can't think of what it is.

I hope that some day everyone on this planet is allowed to be a full human being in the eyes of others. Being a woman is not to be a thing or a Temptress, but is roughly one half of the ways to be human.

Because you were always protected and never had to to go through the struggle, you don't know how bad some girls have had it. Girl's know how to control themselves, they know how to control their emotions and feelings, while guys on the other hand don't. Usually it's a guy who rapes a girl, not the other way around. Personally i'd rather take the precautions first and protect myself before anything happens that i wouldn't want. It's not one of the Arab countries that has the highest amount of reported rape cases, it's other countries with India being number one, followed by UK, Mexico, Germany, Sweden and the list goes on. I'm not saying people in highly Muslim populated countries don't get raped. I'm sure they still do but the numbers are very few. If a girl likes a guy, usually in most cases, they'll go up to them, talk to them, flirt with them, try to get to know them better, and in most cases guys do the same, but then there are those who just want to use the girl and want nothing more. It's not like some girls don't do that, they do but it's very unlikely. And the people you grow up with, playing with them, they are definitely wonderful and a blessing at the moment, but you never know how anyone's going to turnout. Even siblings turn out differently, even though they live in the same house and are raised by the same parents, just because you grew up with someone and they were nice back then, doesn't mean they'll stay that way, just think about the people you grew up with and how much they've turned out differently than you. It doesn't take one second for someone's intentions to turn evil. Yeah to be covered up should definitely not be imposed on girls. Everyone needs to have a full understanding of what they're doing and why they're doing it. Every child likes to be free and it's their right to be free. When they are younger, people should have other ways to protect them but yeah once they start getting older, guys's temptations start to increase as well. Not all guys are the same but they do start looking at you differently.
