Science Fact of the Month- May 2010

Monday, May 31, 2010 @ 09:05 PM
Abbas Karimjee[ Administrator/ Owner]

With LOST just having ended   last week,it  seems appropriate to have  this month’s  Science Fact of the Month tie into the series. We will therefore be covering electromagnetism

The basic premise of  electrical magnetism  is that  electricity  is  being transported through  a wire . By being transported through  a wire, a magnetic shield is created in the surrounding area.

Some examples of objects created by  electromagnetism include  tape drives, speakers, motors, e.tc.

It should be noted  that virtually all movement/ actions are  due to electromagnetic forces which  react on charged protons and electrons.Remember,  that this also includes the pushing and pulling effects  when an object is being moved.

As LOST viewers are aware, the original  Oceanic flight 815 crashed due to a spike of electromagnetism  which was not contained as the hatch responsible for doing so was not  being monitored by its  keeper, Desmond Humes.Take a look at the scene of the crash directly below.

Happy Birthday to Us! Today this weblog turns 2 years old!

It was two years ago today I decided to start this weblog. I am pleased that we have had another successful year of operation in which the site has crossed many milestones. I  had no idea when I started  this weblog that I would still be doing it  two years later . This  site  means a lot to  me and it has truly been a rewarding  experience. I would have never imagined that this site would be such  a  large place which covers a wide  range of subject matter  for thousands of readers each month.  Thank you for supporting   us through your visits and participation in the community.  Indeed without  dedicated readers, a site has no  meaning or future.

  Over the past year the site has grown immensely.  We welcomed  over 36 000  readers  in our second year- which is three times more than the 12 000 readers who visited us in our first year. We have  welcomed  dozens of wonderful more regulars to the community and have  had an increase in discussion throughout the site. We have affiliated with various  other sites including LOST fan site, LOST Media and  MSG Network’s LOST  Hub Page. Back in March, we  launched ourFacebook page   which  readers can use to follow the blog and related announcements .We enhanced reader – management communication   in April  by adding Meebo to our sidebar. Readers can now chat with management in real-time about any issues with the site . I would also like to thank Editors Nisreen O’Neill and Zaynab Karimjee for their continuous work in the site over the past year.

 Over the past year we provided  coverage on the first half of Stargate Universe,  provided extensive coverage on LOST  as the show progresses in  its  sixth and final season  and provided coverage  on the fourth season of  Little Mosque on the Prairie . We also  had a central focus on the  coverage  and discussion of the   upcoming Stargate Films  which have been placed on hold by MGM.  We continued to explore the world of Science by continuing our regular Science Fact of the Month feature which provided overview on various scientific  issues. During our second year, we provided Muslim readers with up to date information on the dates  of both Eid Ul Fitr  and Eid Al Adha. Together we  celebrated these occasions and remembered their significance. We  also continued to  post  great deal of subject matter  pertaining to the  environment.

What plans do we have for year #3?Our  third year in operation promises to be the most   eventful  one. After two successful years on WordPress, we are  excited to reveal that  we will moving to a self hosted site  in June. Details regarding the movement will be provided shortly .At our new website we will continue providing  coverage of our current subject matter and have great opportunities  to  expand the community .

Before we leave  , we will   be having a central focus on LOST   with tributes,  coverage , a special surprise and  discussion as the series comes to a close.  At our new  site we  will  launch coverage on a few more Science Fiction series including, Smallville as the show enters in  tenth  and final season,   and    resume our  coverage of Stargate Universe as the show  approaches  the end of its inaugural season . Furthermore, we  will   providing all of the latest developments regarding Little Mosque on the Prairie’s  exciting fifth season  and stream all episodes from the coming season. Be sure to expect coverage on a few games shows including the popular, Deal or No Deal .We will also  be having some special new regular features which will be introduced next  month. We also, generally, intend on posting more frequently. We  hope that  as a much larger self hosted  site we can attract more readers and use a wider range of technological applications.

  Thank you for being apart of our community and helping make the past year a blast! We look  forward to   another   spectacular year where we work  with readers to make our new site the best it can be!

Little Mosque on the Prairie Renewed For Season 5

Friday, May 14, 2010 @ 04:05 PM
Abbas Karimjee[ Administrator/ Owner]

After several weeks of waiting, an official indication    regarding Little Mosque on the Prairie’s future has been released.  Indeed the series has been renewed for a fifth season, reports  TV. Guide.ca.

Although CBC  will not provide an official statement regarding the program’s renewal until the end of the month,  the production   for  the upcoming season commenced  last week.The news  will indeed be a relief for many members of the fandom  who were concerned about the program’s continuity after it was  revealed that the series’ viewership had drastically decreased to less than  400,000 viewers.

The fifth season will consist of 13 episodes, the first of which  will  debut in January 2011. Readers should note that the  exciting fifth season will feature all of the cast members who were present in  the series’ inaugural season , including   Carlo Rota[ Yassir Hamoudi], who was absent in the final half of the previous fourth season due to alternate professional commitments as well as   Derek McGrath[ Reverend McGee] who was not apart of the cast during the fourth season.Rota will appear in only a handful of episodes throughout the season as he continues to have alternate commitments while McGrath will return  for various episodes  in the second half of the impending season.

All of the members of the original cast of Little Mosque on the Prairie will return in the fifth season.

As far as storylines are concerned, the following season will have  a central focus on Ammar [ Zaib Shaikh] and Rayaan”s [ Sitara Hewitt]  developing relationship since  the two confessed their love for each  other in the season 4 finale.  Executive producer ,  Marry Darling commented on the challenges brought forth in  presenting this storyline indicating that “Once love is professed, the whole chaperoning is taken to a new level. It’s been a real kick for our writers to not only figure out how to keep characters apart but to keep them from touching each other.”

Brandon Firla’[Reverend William Thorne] will also continue to be apart of the main  cast during  the upcoming season. According to Darling, his character will face challenges  as he must  now try to   build a more respectable image and form positive relationships within the community.”He got his comeuppance at the end of last season and this year he’s dealing with that, trying to rebuild and find his real legs in Mercy. He’s trying to change but has some ingrained habits that make that hard”, says Darling.

Indeed we look forward to viewing the fifth season of Little Mosque on the Prairie .  Are you excited about the new season?  How do you feel about the direction the series is taking? What specific storylines would you like to see develop? Let us know in the comments section below!

Enviornmental Tips – Preventing Water Pollution

Monday, May 10, 2010 @ 06:05 PM
Abbas Karimjee[ Administrator/ Owner]

Here are 5  measures which  can be  easily undertaken  to help prevent water pollution

 1.  Help conserve water by  shutting the tap when you  do not require  it to remain  operational. For example,  if have wet your brush then you should  keep the tap off while you are brushing instead of letting it run the entire time. This will help prevent  water from being wasted and  reduce your monthly hydro bill.

 

2.Do  not   dispose of items such as     paint or oils down the  drain or toilet.Appropriately place  such items in the garbage or recycling cans.

3.Only operate the dishwasher when it is full or you are sure  that  no further dishes will need to be loaded  later on. This way  you can  do fewer washes which will  not only conserve  water  but also  reduce your hydro bill and save  time. Also, if you are washing  your dishes, ensure that  you are not using any soaps which contain the contaminating  phosphates.

 4. Avoid littering  bodies  of water such as  ponds , lakes,  or oceans. Instead  you should   dispose of  uneeded items  in  the garbage  cans or recyclying  boxes.

5.Avoid using an  excess of fertilizers and pesticides as such    substances can contaminate water in the environment as they  can easily enter local runoffs during rainfalls.
