Notes and tidbits posted on FB and Twitter. Part 148

Note: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. I pay attention to researched documentaries and serious links I receive. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains a month-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

It is worth reading “Tout est hallucine'” de Hyam Yared, just for the sentences of Dalal in that story.

Ma grand-mere etait une montagne de force et n’avait aucune illusion. Elle n’avait pas de rapport d’amour, ni a Dieu, ni a son mari: une facon de s’evader du domicile familiale. Elle etait connecte’ a l’histoire politique des changements.

Ma grand-mere ne se morfondait pas quand le couple etait separe’ des mois durant et refusait de prier Dieu pour qu’il n’arrive rien a son mari.

In June 1974, the movie “The hour of liberation has chimed.. Out colonialists” by the young woman director Heine Srour won a special acclaim in Cannes.  Hind is a Jew female who had to leave Lebanon during the civil war. This movie is about the popular revolutionary struggle of the people in Zofar (Oman, Hadramout, and south Yemen) from the British colonial power and archaic monarchic structures.

In February 1975, director Borhan Alweyeh showed his movie “Kfar Kassem“.  Hundreds of spectators remained in the theater way after midnight discussing the movie.  The film is a retrospective documentary of the genocidal massacre that Israel committed against the Palestinians in the village of Kfar Kassem in 1956 before it invaded Sinai.

26% of USA want to support Israel versus just 2% for Palestine? Evangelical Zionists are the majority in USA? What of all these minorities, Catholics and Moslems?

People in Yemen are dying 10 times more from diphtheria than from cholera. Yemen was denied inoculation from basic illnesses in the last 3 years

At the first session of my class I repeat several times that the purpose of the engineering discipline is to design practical products or systems that man needs and wants, that human factors engineers are trained to consider first the health and safety of end users, the customers, the operators, and the workers when designing interfaces for products or systems.

Several weeks later, a few students retained the concept of designing practical interfaces or what an interface could be, but the pictures of end users are still blurred in their mind. How can you design anything if the end user is Not present in your purpose?

USA ma badda te3teref enno Da3esh intahat, mass badda te3teref bi Jerusalem, ka3edat lel erhab al sohyouni
