Wonder If I Gave An Oreo

Wonder If I Gave An Oreo
(Would You Sing With Me?)
We could share some sweet melodies
And sing in harmony
Let’s forget our area codes
The way we speak
Or how we wear our clothes
It doesn’t matter to me
Just like a song
Music knows no boundaries
No colouring books or family trees
So won’t you sing along

Wonder If I Gave An Oreo
Would You Sing With Me
No broken promises
Countless ways that never end or fun
So take one

Let’s forget our area codes
The way we speak
How we wear our clothes
It doesn’t matter to me

Just like a song
Music knows no boundaries
No colouring books or family trees
So won’t you sing along
Oh…

Pink or green
Doesn’t matter what your scene is
Sing along Oh…

Like a smile
So much wonder in between
So sing along
Oh oh ooo… yea…

Wonder if I gave an Oreo
would you sing with me?
We could share
Or write our stories
Filled with future dreams
Oh… oh… oh…
Wonder if I gave an Oreo
Would you sing with me
Oh.. oh…oh..

US blocks British Muslim family from flight to see American relatives, Disneyland

A British Muslim family of 11 on their way to Southern California was denied access to their plane by US Department of Homeland Security officials without explanation.

After being forced to return the duty free they had bought, the family were escorted from the airport, which Mr Mahmood said was one of the most embarrassing moments of his life.

Worse still, Mr Mahmood and his brother Mohammad Zahid Mahmood, have been told by their airline that the £9,000 cost of their flights, which they had saved for months for, will not be refunded.

Sam Zell on Economy and Politics

BILLIONAIRE INVESTOR: ‘A high probability that we’re looking at a recession’

“I think the economy is closer to falling over than it is to going up,” he said.

“I think that there’s a high probability that we’re looking at a recession in the next 12 months.”

Burn these school books, please!

NO, I take that back. Books shouldn’t ever be burned. Instead recycle the paper, use for wrapping vegetables or fish, or dispose of in some environmentally friendly way. But please keep our students away from the rotten science textbooks published by the Sindh Textbook Board (STB), an entity operating under the Sindh Ministry of Education. Else yet another generation will end up woefully ignorant of the subjects they study — physics, mathematics, chemistry, and biology. Tragically they will see these magnificent human achievements as pointless, boring, and dry as dust.

I have a pile of STB books before me at the moment. Both in English and Urdu, they are the officially prescribed texts for classes 4 to 10 (ages 10 to 16) and are in current use. In addition, I have two manuscripts on general science for classes 4 and 5, scheduled for publication this year or next. My blood pressure is steadily rising as I turn the pages, and I take careful sips of water.

Skepticism instead of Cynicism

http://bigthink.com/videos/bill-nye-on-how-to-become-a-skeptic

It’s important to adopt a critical approach to life and familiarize oneself with skeptical thinking. Stick to the facts. Evaluate claims. Judge for yourself whether the things people say are truly steeped in reason, or if it’s all just wool over your eyes. These mindsets take time and effort to develop, so don’t get discouraged if you don’t become a totally rational, skeptical thinker on day 1.

All that said, there is one thing Bill cannot stress enough though: Do not confuse skepticism with cynicism.

Trump means business

A Dubai real estate firm building a $6 billion golf complex with Donald Trump on Thursday (December 10, 2015) stripped the property of his name and image amid a backlash over the US presidential candidate’s proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the United States.

Just 3 days later, come Sunday (13 Dec, 2015), Trump name is restored.

Dubai’s glamorous muslim economy just couldn’t hold Trump’s name down for more than 3 days.
