Ban on BlackBerry services will not be implemented in KSA

Saudi Arabia was due to ban the BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) service in last week, but the Communications and Information Telecommunications Commission (CITC), gave operators until Monday to test servers based with each of the three operators in the country that offers BlackBerry services.

Reuters now cites a source familiar with the talks between the CITC, RIM and the operators as saying that the idea of setting up a server at each of the three local service providers has proved impractical, and that in place RIM has agreed to offer Saudi Arabia's interior ministry and intelligence services the codes to all Saudi BlackBerry users.

The CITC was not available for comment, while RIM referred to an earlier statement that "RIM cooperates with all governments with a consistent standard".

Google Adsense help requires Macromedia Flash ???

I was just surprised to see name of Macromedia at Google ad-sense help page. They have put some training videos at Google Adsense help page and beside they wrote in brackets (Macromedia Flash required). I was a big fan of Macromedia Software company and I have started using their software back in 2001 at the time of Dreamweaver and Fireworks version 3. Later on probably after Dreamweaver 8 Macromedia has been sold to Adobe systems and its name vanished from everywhere, from the internet, from the Softwares itself and other media sources. I personally thing Macromedia was doing better job than Adobe systems, however still products like Dreamweaver and Fireworks are a great success even though Adobe are handling them.

For now just leave this story aside, my topic is why Google didn't update their help pages, instead of Macromedia, name of  Adobe Flash should be written there. Is Google team is that sleepy that they are not aware of Macromedia's ending or Is there some solid reason behind this to put Macromedia name there. Check the snapshot below. The page is located here.

The 500 Most Influential Muslims in the World - Book

The publication The 500 Most Influential Muslims in the World 2009 is published by the Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Center Jordan.It is the first of what is supposed to be be an annual series that provides a window into the movers and shakers of the Muslim world. The RISS Center has strived to highlight people who are influential as Muslims, that is, people whose influence is derived from their practice of Islam or from the fact that they are Muslim. They think that this gives valuable insight into the different ways that Muslims impact the world, and also shows the diversity of how people are living as Muslims today.

Influence is a tricky concept. Its meaning derives from the Latin word influens meaning to flow-in, pointing to an old astrological idea that unseen forces (like the moon) affect humanity. The figures on this list have the ability to affect humanity too. In a variety of different ways each person on this list has influence over the lives of a large number of people on the earth. The 50 most influential figures are profiled. Their influence comes from a variety of sources, however they are unified by the fact that they each affect huge swathes of humanity.

The RISS Center has then broken up the 500 leaders into 15 categories

  1. Scholarly
  2. Political
  3. Administrative
  4. Lineage
  5. Preachers
  6. Women
  7. Youth
  8. Philanthropy
  9. Development
  10. Science and Technology
  11. Arts and Culture
  12. Media
  13. Radicals
  14. International Islamic Networks
  15. Issues of the Day
These categories were developed to help you understand the different kinds of ways Islam and Muslims impact the world today. Two composite lists show how influence works in different ways:
International Islamic Networks shows people who are at the head of important transnationalnetworks of Muslims, and Issues of the Day highlights individuals whose importance is due to current issues affecting humanity.

Disclaimer and Invitation to Participate

Being the first attempt of its kind at a list that shows the broad extent of Muslims influence on the world we acknowledge that there are likely to be gaps in our categorizing, and are sure that we have missed some influential people. We would like to keep the process as open as possible and ask you to please write in
suggestions to 500@rissc.jo
