The British Humanist Association will be administering all donations to the campaign, and Professor Richard Dawkins, bestselling author of The God Delusion, has generously agreed to match all contributions up to a maximum of £5,500, giving us a total of £11,000 if we raise the full amount. This will be enough to fund two sets of atheist adverts on 30 London buses for four weeks.

If the buses hit the road, this will be the UK’s first ever atheist advertising campaign. .

Echoes of my lost diary

This was written a couple of years ago. In retrospect, not getting the coveted reward of a highly ranked MBA program turned out not to be such a bad thing after all. HBS will burn for what it has unleashed upon the world.

Of course LIBOR was showing some signs of easing (though the situation is akin to the mercury on a thermometer not exploding the instrument), but then it got worse again today. The patient is still in mortal danger. What other ‘instrument’ must one watch to gauge the system? The BDI: the Baltic Dry Index. This index measures how many ships are on dry docks rather than floating around with stuff. Right now its OFF THE CHARTS. No floating ships, and pretty soon you’ll see stuff rotting at ports and your stomach eating itself.

Thoughts on Marriage

Indeed, economists Betsey Stevenson and Justin Wolfers at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania believe that a revolution in modern marriage has taken place. According to their view, two generations ago, a husband and wife married in order to share production, with the man working in the market and the woman working at home. Today, the husband and wife are both likely to work in the market, and they choose one another because they have similar tastes in consumption.

Personalisht jam i mendimit qe te pyesesh ‘pse’ eshte nje ushtrim i kote i arsyes pervecse ndoshta ne rastin kur pret qe pergjigja te te vije nga qielli. Nje pyetje me e thjeshte do ishte ‘SI?’ Vulgu zakonisht pyet ‘pse’, ‘intelektuali’ pyet ‘SI?’ Kjo per arsyen e thjeshte qe arsimi publik ndryshe nga ai privat (flas per ShBA-ne) nuk i pergatit njerezit per te qene ne gjendje ti futen nje analize qe i nxjerr zorret perjashte mekanizmit misterioz qe inxhinieret finaciare, prodhim i Ivey Leagues, shpiken per te distiluar para nga paraja.
