The first in a five part series this week is also the first half of a forthright conversation with International Council of AirShows President, John Cudahy, --- which will be followed by a series of short interviews, in three parts, in which members of the airshow community answered the same three questions -- concerning safety, value and the ability of the airshow industry to keep up with the times. Produced at the ICAS Convention just before the end of the year, we were pleased to be able to tackle such important subjects as the industry made ready to start another year... but we apologize for some of the lighting, as we were stuck with some bad conditions and had to make the best of it. ICAS tells us that Airshows draw large numbers of demographically attractive spectators - a well-educated, affluent group of men, women and children of all ages. More than 70 percent of the audience at an air show has had some college education. Three quarters report household income of $35,000 or more. The average spectator is just under 39 years of age, but more than 53 percent of spectators are between 30 and 50. Safety has always been a major airshow concern but a series of unrelated accidents, this past year, to too many performers brought the topic to the forefront of discussion at the most recent ICAS get-together. ICAS notes that Airshows offer a consistently and historically safe environment for millions of spectators each year. Since current rules were implemented nearly 50 years ago, there has not been a single spectator fatality at a North American show – an enviable safety record for any business. But... they're not satisfied to leave it that. A 'small working group' of ICAS members recently met in Dallas to begin work on a new Safety Management System for the air show industry that will serve as an important tool in improving air show safety. Using existing safety management systems as models, ICAS members discussed the changes and accommodations needed to effectively adapt the work already done in other segments of the aviation industry to the particular needs and circumstances of the air show community. Conceived as part of the larger ICAS initiative to change the culture of air show safety, the product of this effort is intended to document processes and procedures that our industry can use to manage risk, report incidents and accidents, participate more actively in accident investigations, identify trends, communicate the results of these investigations to members, and reduce the number of accidents in the air show community.

It's Airshow Week At Aero-TV! The third in a five part series, this week, starts off a series of interwoven interviews in which we asked about a dozen airshow professionals the same three questions... each of which will become the topic of its own program over the next three days. In this installment we asked a number of airshow luminaries the following question... after the airshow business was rocked by the loss of a favored team's sponsorship (the Red Barons), do airshows provide the kind of value necessary to keep attracting high level sponsorship??? In the next two parts, we'll address the airshow industry's ability to keep up with the times and the overall safety situation we find ourselves in as 2008 gets underway in earnest.

He never liked to displease or cause offence to anybody. He thanked even for trifling favours. He took whatever food was placed before him, without making any adverse remark. He never got angry for anything concerning his own person, nor did he think of taking revenge or letting down anybody, but if anyone opposed what was just and right, he used to get sore and helped the right cause with all his might." I [Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)] forbade that a sword which has " It is not allowable for a man to keep apart from his brother for more than three days, the one turning away and the on" (Tirmidhi). (Muhammad The Ideal Prophet. by Sayyid Suliman Nadwi). 202.Abdullah b. al-Harith b. Jaz said he had not seen no one more given to smiling than Allah's messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). (Tirmidhi). (Sayings of Muhammad. by Prof. Ghazi Ahmad). 203. Verily the creation of each one of you is brought together in his mother's belly for forty days in the form of a seed, then he is a clot of blood for a like period, then a morsel of flesh for a like period, then there is sent to him the angel who blows the breath of life into him and who is commanded about four matters (NOTE 2) to write down his means of livelihood, his life span, his actions, and whether happy or unhappy. By Allah, other than Whom there is no god, verily one of you behaves like the people of Paradise until there is but an arm's length between him and it, and that which has been written overtakes him and so he behaves like the people of Hell-fire and thus enters it; and one of you behaves like the people of Hell-fire until there is but an arm's length between him and it, and that which has been written overtakes him and so he behaves like the people of Paradise and thus enters it. (Bukhari, Muslim). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 204.Actions are but by intention and every man shall have but that which he intended. Thus he whose migration (NOTE 3) was for Allah and His Messenger, and he whose migration was to achieve some worldly benefit or to take some woman in marriage was for that he for which he migrated. (Bukhari). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 205.He who innovates something in which this matter of ours that is not of it will have it rejected. (Bukhari, Muslim). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 206.He who does an act which our matter is not [in agreement] with, will have it rejected. (Muslim). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 207. The believers whose faith " None of you [truly] believes until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself. (Bukhari, Muslim). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 208. There should be neither harming nor reciprocating harm. (Ibn Majah and Daraqutni). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 209.Hazrat Umar (Allah be pleased with him) said: One day while we were sitting with the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) there appeared before us a man whose clothes were exceedingly white and whose hair was exceedingly black; no signs of journeying were to be seen on him and none of us knew him. He walked and sat down by the Prophet (peace be upon him). Resting his knees against his and placing the palm of his hands on his thigh, he said: O Muhammad, tell me about Islam. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: Islam is to testify that there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, to perform the prayers, to pay the zakat (NOTE 4) , to fast in Ramadan, and to make the pilgrimage to the House (NOTE 5) if you are able to do so. He said: You have spoken rightly, and we were amazed at him asking him and saying that he had spoken right. He said: Then tell me about iman (NOTE 6) . The Prophet (may the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him ) said: It is to believe in Allah, His angels, His books, His messengers and the Last Day, and to believe in divine destiny, both the good and evil thereof. He said: You have spoken rightly. He said: Then tell me about ihsan (NOTE 7) , The Prophet (may the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him ) said: It is to worship Allah as though you are seeing Him, and while you see Him not yet truly He sees you. He said then tell me about the Hour (NOTE 8) , The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: The one questioned about it knows no better than the questioner. He said: Tell me about its signs. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: The slave-girl will give birth to her mistress (NOTE 9) and that you will see the barefooted naked, destitute herdsmen competing in constructing lofty buildings. Then he took himself off and I stayed for a time. Then the Prophet (may the blessings and peace of Allah be upon) said: O Umar, do you know who the questioner was? I said: Allah and hid Messenger know best. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: It was Gabriel, who came to you to teach you your religion. (Muslim). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 210.That which is lawful is plain and that which is unlawful is plain and between the two if them are doubtful matters about which not many people know. Thus he who avoids doubtful matters clears himself in regard to his religion and his honour, but he who falls into doubtful matters falls into that which is unlawful, like the shepherd who pastures around the sanctuary, all but grazing therein. Truly every king has a sanctuary, and truly Allah's sanctuary is His prohibitions. Truly in the body there is a morsel of flesh which, if diseased, all of it is diseased. Truly it is the heart. (Bukhari, Muslim). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 211.What I have forbidden to you, avoid; what I have ordered you [to do], do as much of it as you can. It was only their excessive questioning and their disagreeing with their Prophets that destroyed those who were before you. (Bukhari, Muslim). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 212.Leave that which makes you in doubt for that which does not make you doubt. (Tirmidhi, Nasai). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 213.Part of someone's being a good Muslim is his leaving alone that which does not concern him. (Tirmidhi). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 214.Fear Allah wherever you are, and follow up a bad deed with a good deed and it will wipe it out, and behave well towards people. (Tirmidhi). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 215.Purity is half of faith. Al-hamdu lillah [Praise be to Allah] fills the scales, and Subhana 'llah [How far is Allah from every imperfection] and Al-hamdu lillah [Praise be to Allah] fill that which is between heaven and earth. Prayer is light; charity is a proof; patience is illumination; and the Quran is an argument for or against you. Everyone starts his day and is a vendor of his soul, either freeing it or bringing about its ruin. (Muslim). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 216.I have been ordered to fight (NOTE 10) against people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah and until he perform the prayers and pay the zakat, and if they do so, they will have gained protection from me for their lives (NOTE 11) and property, unless [they do acts that are punishable] in accordance with Islam, and their reckoning will be with Allah the Almighty. (Bukhari, Muslim). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 217.Verily Allah has prescribed proficiency in all things. Thus, if you kill, kill well; and if you slaughter, slaughter well. Let each one of you sharpen his blade and let him spare suffering to the animal he slaughters. (Muslim). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 218.There should be neither harming nor reciprocating harm. (Ibn Majah and Daraqutni). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 219. Allah the Almighty is good and accepts only that which is good. Allah has commanded the Messengers, and the Almighty has said: "O ye Messengers! Eat of the good things and do right." (NOTE 12) And Allah has said: "O ye who believe ! Eat of the good things wherewith We have provided you." (NOTE 13) Then the Prophet (peace be upon him) mentioned [the case of] a man who, having journeyed far, is dishevelled and dusty and who spreads out his hands to the sky [saying]: O Lord! O Lord! - while his food is unlawful, his drink unlawful, his clothing unlawful, and he is nourished unlawfully, so how can he be answered! (Muslim). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 220.Among the words people obtained from the First Prophecy (NOTE 14) are: If you feel no shame, then do as you wish. (NOTE 15) (Bukhari). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 221.None of you [truly] believes until his inclination is in accordance with what I ((Muhammad), may the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him ) have brought. (Kitab al-Hujja). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 222.Righteousness is good morality, and wrongdoing is that which wavers in your soul and which you dislike people finding out about. (Muslim). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 223.Allah the Almighty has laid down religious duties, so do not neglect them; He has set boundaries, so do not overstep them; He has prohibited some things, so do not violate them; about some things He was silent out of compassion for you, not forgetfulness, so seek not after them. (Daraqutni) (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 224.Each person's every joint must perform a charity every day they comes up: to act justly between two people is a charity; to help a man with his mount, lifting him onto it or hoisting up his belongings onto it is a charity; a good word is a charity; every step you take to prayers (i.e. on your way to the mosque) is a charity and removing a harmful thing from the road is a charity. (Bukhari, Muslim). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 225.The blood of a Muslim may not be legally spilt other than in one of three [instances]: the married person commits adultery; a life for life; and one who forsakes his religion and abandons the community. (Bukhari, Muslim). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 226.Were people to be given in accordance with their claim, men would claim the fortunes and lives (NOTE 16) of [other] people, but the onus of proof is on the claimant and the taking of an oath is the incumbent upon him who denies. (Al-Baihaqi). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 227.Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddique (Allah be pleased with him) narrates that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "A man who harms a Muslim and deceives him, is accursed." (Tirmidhi). (Hayaat-ul-Muslimeen. by Mohammad Ashraf Ali Thanvi). 228.Allah has pardoned for me my people for [their] mistakes and [their] forgetfulness and for what they have done under duress. (Ibn Majah, Baihaqi). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 229.Allah has written down the good deeds and the bad ones. Then He explained it [by saying that] he who has intended a good deed and has not done it, Allah writes it down with Himself as a full good deed, but if he intended it and has done it, Allah writes it down with Himself as from ten good deeds to seven hundred times, or many times over. But if he has intended a bad deed and has not done it, Allah writes it down with Himself as a full good deed, but if he has intended it and has done it, Allah writes it down as one bad deed. (Bukhari, Muslim). (Forty Hadith translated by . Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 230.Do not envy one another; do not inflate prices one to another; do not hate one another; do not turn away from one another; and do not undercut one another, but be you. O servants of Allah, brothers. A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim: he neither oppresses him nor does he fail him, he neither lies to him nor does he hold him in contempt. Piety is right here-and the Prophet (peace be upon him) pointed to his breast three times. It is evil enough for a man to hold his brother Muslim in contempt. The whole of a Muslim for another is inviolable: his blood, his property and his honour. (Muslim). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 231.Some of the Companions (NOTE 17) of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said to the Prophet:(peace be upon him) O Messenger of Allah, the affluent have made off with the rewards: they pray as we pray, they fast as we fast, and they give away in charity the superfluity of their wealth. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Has not Allah made things for you to give away in charity? Truly every tasbiha (NOTE 18) is a charity every takbira (NOTE 19) is a charity, every tahmida (NOTE 20) is a charity and every tahlia (NOTE 21) is a charity; to enjoin a good action is a charity, to forbid an evil action is a charity and in a sexual act each of you there are a charity. They said: O Messenger of Allah, when one of us fulfils his sexual desire will he have some reward for that? The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Do you [not] think that were he to act upon it unlawfully he wold be sinning? Likewise, if he has acted upon it lawfully he will have a reward. (Muslim). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 232.Allah the Almighty has said: Whosoever shows enmity to a friend of Mine, I shall be at war with him. My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have imposed upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him, I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hands with which he strikes and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him; and were he to ask me for refuge, I would surely grant him it. (Bukhari). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 233.The son of Umar (may Allah be pleased with them both) use to say: At evening do not expect [to live till] morning, and at morning do not expect [to live till] evening. Take from your health for your illness and from your life for your death (NOTE 22). (Bukhari). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). 234.A man came to the Prophet (may the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him ) and said: O Messenger of Allah, direct me to an act which, if I do it, [will cause] Allah to love me and people to love me. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Renounce the world and Allah will love you, and renounce what people possess and people will love you. (Ibn Majah). (Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies). HALAL

Medical Travel (or as it is more commonly misnamed, Medical Tourism) is the deliberate travel for healthcare outside one’s own country. Besides being an old practice of the more affluent, it is also a new economic phenomenon following the globalisation of other industries. In the midst of a cacophony of national tourism organisations announcing their entry, Singapore is starting the fifth year of its government-industry partnership to develop and maintain its decades-old position as the medical destination of choice in the region.

From WorldNetDaily. TV ad features Barack Obama mocking Bible Candidate's 'Fight the Smears' site tries to bury video documentation By Drew Zahn WorldNetDaily A television commercial showing clips of Sen. Barack Obama mocking the Bible has prompted backlash from the candidate's "Fight the Smears" website, which falsely accuses the ad's creator of trying to scam Christians out of their money by promising to air a spot that will never be broadcast. Under the heading "Scamming the faithful," Obama's official website says of the man who made the commercial, "The trickster's claims about Barack's faith are every bit as false as his claims that this amateurish video is really a TV ad." WND has confirmed, however, that – true to his word – the ad's creator purchased air time for the commercial on television stations in the battleground state of Pennsylvania. Sources at WTAE-TV in Pittsburgh and a cable company servicing Erie told WND that the ad had been aired on several occasions. Nonetheless, in an Oct. 3 update to "Scamming the Faithful," the Obama website maintains its attack of the commercial's creator, Stephen Marks of the organization pH for America. "Nothing has changed here," reads the Oct. 3 update, "The scammer is still untrustworthy. … Making scams seem plausible is what tricksters like him are known for. In the end, he's even less credible now than he was when he first started taking people's money." "It is ironic indeed," responded Marks in a statement, "that this so-called 'Fight the Smears' website (is) not fighting smears but creating them." Marks insists that every dollar he has raised through his website and the appeal for support at the end of the ad "has gone to pay for the media buys and minimal production costs." Marks also claims that that pH for America purchased a television as a gift for the Obama campaign "so they can watch the TV and see the ads airing for themselves." Marks told WND, "If this ad is seen by all the swing voters in all the key swing states, it would not only anger anyone who reads the Bible, but will make anyone who sees the ad re-think the Jeremiah Wright fiasco as well as Obama's remarks in April that 'small town America' is so bitter that they have to 'cling to their guns and religion.' "Most Americans have thus far given Obama a pass on those two issues, but after seeing our ad, it will make many, if not most folks think, 'Now I finally understand why Obama would belong to such a radical church,' and 'Now I finally understand Obama's true contempt for people of faith regarding his 'cling to their guns and religion' remark," Marks said. Obama's website claims that Marks deliberately edited clips of the candidate to make Obama look bad and that the commercials don't reflect the nature of the speech from which they were taken. "With such a deceptive person behind this video, it's not surprising that everything he says about Barack is deeply dishonest and wrong, too," says the "Fight the Smears" website. "The video takes 5 sentences out of a 4,500-word speech Barack gave in 2006 completely out of context to stoke division and hatred." The commercial features edited clips from a speech Sen. Obama made before a conference in Washington, D.C., June 28, 2006. The entire transcript of the speech can be seen here, but the immediate context is as follows: Whatever we once were, we are no longer just a Christian nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers. And even if we did have only Christians in our midst, if we expelled every non-Christian from the United States of America, whose Christianity would we teach in the schools? Would we go with James Dobson's, or Al Sharpton's? Which passages of Scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is ok and that eating shellfish is abomination? How about Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith? Or should we just stick to the Sermon on the Mount - a passage that is so radical that it's doubtful that our own Defense Department would survive its application? So before we get carried away, let's read our Bibles. Folks haven't been reading their Bibles. The group pH for America is a 527 organization – so named for the IRS designation for such groups – created by Marks, a Republican political consultant who also created advertisements criticizing 2004 Democrat candidate John Kerry. The group's website boasts it "is hoping to become the 'Swiftboat' 527 organization of 2008," referencing the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, a 527 organization that created commercials widely credited with contributing to Kerry's defeat. Evan Tracey, chief operating officer of Campaign Media Analysis Group, told CNN the appeal for money at the end of the pH for America advertisement, rather than an indication of "scamming" or "tricking" people, is common for 527 organizations trying to impress donors. "Even though an ad buy might be small now, remember, these groups are auditioning right now for late donations to take these ads to a larger scope," Tracey said. "Remember, the Swift Boat original ad buy was less than $1 million and ran in only a handful of small media markets." Marks echoed that strategy in a release announcing the successful purchase of air time for his group's commercial. "Unlike other 527 groups who are funded by millionaires, ours has been funded by grass-roots blue-collar voters offended by the side of Barack Obama they see in our ad," Marks said. "We hope that as more folks see the ad, that we will eventually get help from more affluent contributors." SAY THIS PRAYER: Dear Jesus, I am a sinner and am headed to eternal hell because of my sins. I believe you died on the cross to take away my sins and to take me to heaven. Jesus, I ask you now to come into my heart and take away my sins and give me eternal life. *******www.armyofgod****

Le Nil (النيل (An-Nil) en arabe) avec une longueur d'environ 6 718 km est le plus long fleuve du monde, le second étant l'Amazone (6 570 km)[1]. Il est issu de la rencontre du Nil Blanc et du Nil Bleu. Le Nil blanc (Nahr-el-Abiad) prend sa source au lac Victoria (Ouganda, Kenya, Tanzanie) ; le Nil bleu (Nahr-el-Azrak) est issu du lac Tana (Éthiopie). Ses deux branches s'unissant à Khartoum, capitale du Soudan actuel, le Nil se jette dans la Méditerranée en formant un delta au nord de l'Égypte. En comptant ses deux branches, le Nil traverse le Rwanda, le Burundi, la Tanzanie, l'Ouganda, l'Éthiopie, le Soudan et l'Égypte. Il longe également le Kenya et la République démocratique du Congo (respectivement avec les lacs Victoria et Albert), et son bassin versant concerne aussi l'Érythrée grâce à son affluent du Tekezé. Le Nil est la voie qu'empruntaient les Égyptiens pour se déplacer. Il apporte la vie en fertilisant la terre et garantit l'abondance. Il joua un rôle très important dans l'Égypte antique, du point de vue économique, social (c'était autour de lui que se trouvaient les plus grandes villes), agricole (grâce au précieux limon des crues) et religieux. Fleuve nourricier d'un grand peuple, il fut divinisé sous le nom d'Hâpy[2], personnification divine du Nil dans la mythologie égyptienne. La crue du Nil, qui avait lieu chaque été et qui apportait le limon noir permettant la culture de ses rives, est restée longtemps un phénomène inexpliqué. C'est de ce limon noir que vient le nom antique de l'Égypte, Kemet, qui veut dire « la terre noire ». De nos jours, les eaux limoneuses du Nil sont captées et redistribuées sur les terres agricoles grâce aux barrages de Ziftah, d'Assiout, d'Hammadi, d'Esna et surtout des deux barrages géants d'Assouan, l'ancien et le grand barrage, dont la construction dans les années 1970 a nécessité le déplacement de plusieurs temples, dont celui d'Abou Simbel, qui auraient été noyés dans la retenue du lac Nasser. Vu depuis l'espace, le Nil se distingue nettement par sa vallée verte au milieu du désert.
