This is because justice ( ‘adalat ) is one of the central categories of Shi‘a understanding of Islam, it is one of usul ad-din . God Himself is Just ( ‘Adil ), and the aim of His Divine Law is justice, and thus the genuine Islamic ruler must be also just. Due to this reason justice is one of the fundamentals of Shi‘a political thinking. Only ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (a) surely possessed all those required qualities. His Eminence (a) was a universal personality: a just ruler and a great theologian, a courageous warrior and a poet with a deep esthetic feeling. Ali (a) was a husband of Prophet’s beloved daughter Fatima Zahra (a) and their blessed progeny is considered to be the inheritors of Wilayat. The number of those successors was twelve as it is predicted it the trustworthy prophetic traditions. It is remarkable that these traditions are cited not only in Shia collections but also in well-known Sunni hadith collectionSahih Muslim” and “Sahih Bukhari”.

WHEN did the first human beings arrive in the Americas? Though there are arguments about the details, the consensus is that it was around 15,000 years ago, when retreating glaciers at the end of the last ice age permitted travellers from Asia to cross what is now the Bering strait but was then dry land. This makes sense. The evidence suggests that, recent migrants from Africa and their progeny aside, people now alive in Asia, Australia, Europe and the Americas are descended from a handful of Africans who left the continent of their birth about 70,000 years ago. This fits nicely with the conventional date for America’s colonisation, by giving time for the heirs of these African émigrés to make it to eastern Asia, ready for the hop to the New World when conditions permitted. What, then, to make of a discovery, reported in this week’s Nature , by Thomas Deméré of the San Diego Natural History Museum and his colleagues? They have just dated an archaeological site found in California in 1992, which seems to be a place where human beings used stone tools to dismember a mastodon, a now-extinct type of elephant.

The Bush progeny alone are living examples, and Chelsea Clinton, as well as the Queen of England’s own direct children, are not exactly the sharpest knives to come out of the drawer. So why disadvantage more deserving human cases for them? Specifically, with the known propensity for Zionist perversions and ethical malpractice, who sets the bar? Trump is so surrounded by, and indebted to, Jewish financing interests he has no collective authority to implement any key policies which Tel Aviv does not influence or control. Trump IS, sadly, another compromised Gofer for Jewish / Zionist controllers, so forget ideas of radical policy re alignments. He is another bought victim of the AshkeNazi’s, every one of which are rabid self-interest appointees. None work for the US State, and each will seek, as ever, only to sequestrate. Where now America? Where is hope, when one group owns Justice? Where is Patriotic Independence or Representation, when the perceived Leader is so indebted to Special Interests, that the resurgent electoral hope is stillborn? What freedom to operate does Trump have independent of the AshkeNazi’s or Zionists? His backing control says it all Ashke Nazis!

By Alison Saldanha On March 31, the Gujarat assembly amended the state's cow protection laws to extend the maximum sentence for cow slaughter from seven years to a life term and a fine of up to Rs 5 lakh. The amendment made offences under the Gujarat Animal Preservation Act of 1954, which criminalises cow slaughter as well as transportation of cows for slaughter and possession of beef, non-bailable. Gujarat now holds the mantle of the state with the strictest laws in the country to protect cows, bullocks, bulls and their progeny. In an analysis of cow protection laws across the country, IndiaSpend found that: ► As of March 2017, cow slaughter has been prohibited in 84 per cent of states and Union territories, which account for 99.38 per cent of the population. ► Laws banning cow slaughter in nearly half of these states are roughly 50 years old, enacted during the tenure of the Congress.

The father's lifestyle affects the cognitive skills of his offspring -- at least in mice. Scientists have now shown that if male rodents are fed a diet rich in folic acid, methionine and vitamin B12, their progeny do not perform well in memory tests. This suggests that the intake of high concentrations of such methyl donors could also have side effects in humans, for example, if they consume excessive amounts of energy drinks or folic acid pills.

The photographer now hopes the award will continue to bring attention to the crisis in Venezuela, which she intends to continue to document. But, she wont limit herself to that country. In recent months, she covered the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti and the earthquake in Ecuador. But shes also open to more cheerful assignments, like her last one about the sexual exploits of Diego , a giant tortoise in the Galapagos Islands. Meridith KohutThe New York Times/Redux A giant tortoise, Diego,' who is more than 100 years old, poses while being fed at the Fausto Llerena Tortoise Breeding Center in Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz Island, Galapagos, on March 2, 2017. He was brought back from San Diego in the 1970s and spawned more than 800 progeny, largely contributing to the recovery of the Chelonoidis hoodensis species.

But there is a great irony in Islamic history. The Mongols destroyed Baghdad but their children embraced Islam. Even the Prophet’s own uncle (Abu Lahb) was a vicious Islamophobe, and Mecca, now the citadel of Islam, was once an Islamophobic city. American Islamophobes, the ugliest and the less ugly, need to know that American Muslims and their progeny, even if persecuted, will continue to contribute to the economic, social, moral, and intellectual good of America as they have in Malaysia and Indonesia, nations as far away from the Middle East as are the United States. L. Ali Khan is the founder of Legal Scholar Academy and a professor of law at Washburn University, Kansas. He writes for Counter Punch , where this article first appeared.

The fun, functional control of hands-on fabrication is no secret to designers, and it's similarly obvious to kids. You could say the same for the creative potential of simple materials. The new Hamaika furniture project, created by Spanish designer Unai Rollan, taps into that tactile interest, blending simplicity and functionality for both adults and not-there-yets. The name Hamaika is Basque for 'eleven,' which references the project's core design feature: each piece of furniture is made from 11 pieces of wood, each cut to the same length. The little chair in particular captures the pared down inventiveness of Enzo Mari's DIY minimalism with an IKEA-type user-friendliness. The result is a small person sized piece of furniture that would be easy to use as a learning project on tools and dynamic center of balance. Or it could be the base for more creative expression, a blank canvas for your progeny's monstrous Mod Podge masterpiece.

Both bases “…have been home to ‘classifiedvehicles for decades.” Nazi Intel Gehlen and Mueller were brought over and used to help set up the CIA under the infamous, now declassified Operation Paperclip. Joseph Mengele (aka Dr. Green) traveled in and out of America from his South American home and was brought over to help set up the CIA’s secret Mind-kontrol programs, which included MK-Ultra and numerous subprograms, many of which are ongoing even to this very day, although completely denied. Prescott Bush and the Dulles brothers were supportive of the Nazis. Prescott and GHWB both have been accused of being secret Nazis. Prescott for his part in the Union bank support for the Nazis in WW2, in which he was arrested but given immunity to become an “informant,” as long as he signed an agreement that his progeny would never run for political office.

9 million and Xiaomi’s 41.5 million, IDC estimates. Oppo and Vivo both doubled their 2015 haul. In the fourth quarter, they were No. 1 and No. 3, respectively -- Huawei was second. Their approach worked particularly well in lower-tier cities, where mid-range phones became a mainstream hit, said Tay Xiaohan, an IDC analyst. Duan’s smartphone progeny are also gaining some momentum beyond their home turf. In the fourth quarter, Oppo and Vivo were fourth and fifth in the world, respectively. About a quarter of Oppo’s shipments went to markets like India, where it hopes to dig in before Apple establishes a meaningful presence. “Smartphones are an unprecedented opportunity. We forecast at least for the next 10 or 20 years, there’s no replacement. But we dont know,” Duan said. Cook said on the weekend that Apple doesnt have a specific goal for market share.

A little over a year ago, my neighbor introduced me to The New Basics Puttanesca , a sauce made entirely from pantry ingredients: a can of plum tomatoes, a (whole!) tin of anchovies, a (whole!) jar of capers. After everything—there's garlic, olive oil, and olives in there, too—simmers together for about an hour, you toss it with hot pasta, and call dinner done. It's one of those miracle dishes that materializes seemingly from nothing, a particularly good one to know this time of year, when fresh inspiration can be lacking. A few weeks ago, when I opened Colu Henry's Back Pocket Pasta , I felt like I had opened a book filled with the progeny of The New Basics puttanesca, a cadre of pantry-inspired recipes, but each with a fresh spin: some incorporate seasonal ingredients (brown buttered squash bake with sage, crème fraîche and Fontina), others call for fresh seafood (grilled squid with chilies and mint), many are simple and practical (one pot with spinach and goat cheese), some are jazzed up with crispy capers and bread crumbs.

DNA's ability to act like an electrical wire plays a part in how it replicates, new research shows. In the early 1990s, Jacqueline Barton, professor of chemistry at Caltech, discovered an unexpected property of DNA—that it can act like an electrical wire to transfer electrons quickly across long distances. Later, she and colleagues showed that cells take advantage of this trait to help locate and repair potentially harmful mutations to DNA. Now, Barton's lab has shown that this wire-like property of DNA is also involved in a different critical cellular function. When cells divide and replicate themselves in our bodies—for example in the brain, heart, bone marrow, and fingernails—the double-stranded helix of DNA is copied. DNA also copies itself in reproductive cells that are passed on to progeny. The new study, based on work by graduate student Elizabeth O'Brien in collaboration with Walter Chazin's group at Vanderbilt University, offers evidence that a key protein required for replicating DNA depends on electrons traveling through DNA.

Doug Coe died peacefully at his Maryland home yesterday, surrounded by his wife and most of their three generations of progeny, a family totaling nearly 90 members. Jehovahs favorite choir was surely blessed, as they gathered around his bed and through an open window from the yard on a beautiful afternoon, serenading him into eternity with songs and hymns. What a welcome reunion; and now he is in the place where the music never stops. As in life, Doug wanted his passing to point others to Jesus . While the world lost a gentle, spiritual giant, like many others across the globe who knew Doug as a faithful colleague and friend, I lost one of the two longtime spiritual mentors in my life. For the more than 33 years I have been privileged to serve as personal media spokesperson for Billy Graham , the evangelist modeled for me, in both word and deed, the principles of Jesus.

Familiar faces E3 came and went. Sony dipped its toes into totally unknown water with Farpoint, a new intellectual property that's played entirely in VR, but for the most part the house that Crash Bandicoot built stuck to whats worked in the past. God of War made a return, but even the introduction of a grizzly beard, a refreshing Norse setting and that much derided progeny werent enough to shake the feeling Sony would rather make a Norse mythology game with Kratos flinging his familiar chains around than create one without him. Days Gone was another potential new candidate, but with a look, style and feel that felt unmistakably like The Last of Us with Sons of Anarchy dropped in the middle of it, the post-apocalyptic action-adventurer already felt dated by association. Roll the months ahead to the PlayStation Experience in December and we saw Sony double down yet again with The Last of Us 2 (a game that Sony was keen to build hype from despite the fact its a long, long way from seeing the light of play), GT Sport and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (Nathan who?) all filling out the ranks.

The CIA was set up by Third Reich Nazi Intel brought over under Operation Paperclip run by Gehlen and Mueller with full support of the Duklless and Prescott Bush, even though Bush had his Union bank Assets seized and his hands slapped for supporting the Nazis during WW2. Prescott Bush became an informant for the FBI and gained immunity from prosecution for treason by signing an agreement that his progeny would never run for any political office. He was a hard core Nazi man like his “sonGHWB and the Dulles brothers. This immunity agreement Prescott Bush signed was allegedly the document Sandy Berger tried to steal from the National Security section of the US National Archives (and was caught and received minimal correction for). GHWB climbs to the top for managing Op40 at Dallas. GHWB ran OP40 assassination of JFK , RFK and MLK and his reward was to climb the ladder into the higher levels of the Pyramid of Power.

This story first appeared on Ecosystem Marketplace Earlier this week, a group of prominent Republicans called for a nationwide price on carbon to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions and slow climate change. It's a proposal we should all be talking about, but we know Congress won't - at least not before 2018 -because while these elder statesmen of the Republican party were floating the paper, their juvenile progeny in the Senate were voting to let US oil companies pay bribes overseas and stifling any mention of the $20 billion per year in subsidies and tax breaks that the US gives the fossil-fuel sector. Still, the proposal exists, and it may revive the only debate we should be having now: not if we should have a price on carbon, but how to determine it and what to do with the proceeds. Here's a primer to help you along. Why a Price on Carbon? Carbon pricing makes us pay for the damage our greenhouse-gas emissions impose on the rest of the world, on the premise that if we have to pay for it, we'll reduce it - a premise that even free-market icon Milton Friedman endorsed .
