King Hussein of Jordan: A Political Life

احاول دائما ان اقرا اي كتاب يتناول حياة جلالة الملك الراحل الحسين بن طلال لاهتمامي الكبير بشخصيته وقدرته على التعامل والخروج من الازمات وادارته للامور ومن هذه الكتب الكتاب الذي انتهيت من قراءته من مدة قريبة بعنوان الحسين ملك الاردن – حياة سياسية. يتألف الكتاب من حوالي ٤٠٠ صفحة مقسم الى عددة فصول تتاول حياة الملك الراحل السياسية ويقوم الكتاب بتغطية حياة الملك الحسين من قبل توليه العرش الى لحظة وفاته مرورا بجميع فصول حياته السياسية وكيفية تعامل جلالته مع هذه الازمات وقدرته على الخروج بالاردن في مواقف عصيبة كانت تهدد وجوده. لقد بذل المؤلف (نايجل اشتون) مجهود كبير بالبحث عن المصادر والمراجع والمقابلات وقد افرد في اخر الكتاب حوالي ١٠٠ صفحة للمصادر والمراجع ومن ضمن المراجع مذكرات وملاحظات من مكتب جلالته الخاص. الكتاب مكتوب بلغة جميلة وسهلة ولكن كمَ المعلومات الموجود فيه تجعل القارئ يقرأ بتمعن لكي يستطيع استيعاب هذه المعلومات. الكتاب ممتع لمن يرد الاستفادة من تجربة احد القادة والسياسيين في هذا العالم والتعرف على تاريخ المنطقة وايضا لمن اراد التعرف على شخصية أب ومقاتل و صانع سلام وملك.

I am reading almost every book is talking about King Hussein, and I guess this book is one of the best, because it’s talking about the whole life of the king with historical background of the Hashimate family. The two books that written by king Hussein himself stopped after the 1970s but this book go beyond this period until the last days of the king. I am very proud that we had a man like him, that kept Jordan safe in difficult times while others failed. The book is long and you don’t want to put it down. The author did a great job to collect all resources and information and the way of writing is really a joy. As I said it’s a must read for all people who is interested to know about the history of father, a fighter, a peace maker and a king.

هل نسينا انفسنا؟

بالعادة ما بحب اكتب بالعربي مش لاني ما بحب اللغة العربية بالعكس انا بجدها من اجمل اللغات في العالم وهادا مو تعصب بس هيك بشوفها جميلة بكل شيء بس لان ما بعرف اكتب بالفصحى وهاي مشكلتي مو مشكلة اللغة على العموم قررت اكتب بالعربي واحاول اني انتقي مفرداتي والتزم بقواعد اللغة العربية على قدر الامكان. الموضوع اللي حبيت اكتب عنو اجتني فكرتو البارحة قبل ما انام كنت بستمع لبرنامج مسجل على الكمبيوتر بناقش الوحدة وملئ الفراع، سالت حالي ليش الواحد بيشعر بالوحدة ليه صار مفهوم انك وحيد انك ما معك حد يعني ما حد جالس معك في كتير ناس بكون معهم ناس اخرين وبتسالو بيحكيلك بشعر بالوحدة! هل الوحدة معنها عدم وجود شخص معك تانس به اذا هيك معنها ما حد وحيد لان انت فعليا مو لوحدك انت مع نفسك ليش كل مرة بتحاول نفسنا تختلي فينا بنزهق وبنلاقي شي يشغلنا عنها ليش صرنا انخاف انكون مع انفسنا لوحدنا. متى اخر مرة جلست فيها لوحدك مع نفسك وتحدثت اليها؟ بنروح على الدكتور او علي اي مكان بنقعد نستنى ربع ساعه او عشر دقائق برة بنزهق وبنمل او بنلتهي بالموبايل او بمجلة. بطلنا انفكر بانفسنا صار الواحد فينا يخاف يجلس مع نفسو صار يخاف من مفهوم  انا ونفسي بمواجه الزمان؟ هل صارت انفسنا عدوتنا وبنتهرب منها؟ طيب هادا الفراغ اللي بتحكي عنو مش من عمرك يعني هلا انت (ولد اوبنت رجل او امراءة) جالسين في البيت او في الغرفة وحاسين بفراغ او ماللين بدور على شي يشغلك او زي ما بنحكي انمضي وقت او انضيع وقت طيب مش هادا الوقت اللي بدنا انضيعو من عمرنا؟!! هلا فكرو معي من الصبح لحد ما نروح انام شو بنعمل كيف بنمضي الوقت كم من ٢٤ ساعة اعطيت لنفسك متى اخر مرة هيك فتت على غرفتك او جلست بسيارتك او اتمشيت وصرت تحكي مع نفسك وتتناقشو مع بعض تسالها شو بدها شو طموحها لوين رايحين شو في عندكم مشاكل هلا اكيد بتحكي هالبني ادم انجن او انفصم بدو مني اصير احكي مع حالي زي المجانين، ليش مين حكالك انو المجانين بيحكو مع حالهم انا بتحداكم تقومو على غرفتكم او على ايا مكان تكونو فيه لوحدكم وتحكو بين نفسكم بدي اكون انا ونفسي ٥ دقائق بدون ما افكر بشي تاني ولا اي شي برة بس افكر بنفسي وبحالي بتتتخيل قديش بتقدر تقعد بدون ما شي تاني يخطر ببالك غير نفسك؟ راح اترك الجواب لالكم. لو مدمن المخدرات قعد لحظه مع نفسو وشافو مع بعض لوين صارو كان بوقف عن التعاطي وقيس على هاذا المثال كل شيئ.

How to find a job using the social media?

I know lots of bloggers and websites wrote about this subject, but I am writing about it from my own experience, How did I found a new job and moved from my old one to this new one. Let me take you exactly one year back. At the beginning of 2010; I took a decision to change my job I almost their for 4 years and I have to find a new one to develop my career path and polish my knowledge. So I started to think whats the best way to start looking for a job, newspaper? or job websites like bayt? or by traditional way asking my friends if there is an open position somewhere? I decide to change the way of searching, I am going to use the social media and the one that I most addicted to Twitter, I always have it on my mobile and I can easily follow up with it. I did some follow up for the biggest website jobs like UN Jobs (I’m interested to continue my career in the UN system) and each time I found a job ‘position that match my qualifications I put it in my favorite list, at the weekend I have a list of jobs that fit my skills. I started to apply for these jobs, until I received one day an email telling me that I am short listed and I am going to have a job interview, I did it. Got the job and now I am one month old in my new job. During my movement also I had another offer for a job but I decided to go with my current job. You can also use Linkedin just keep your profile up to date, get the right recommendations from the right people. If you are a photographer you can use flickr to post your photo tell people about it using twitter or Facebook you may wake up someday and find an email for a job. Or use YouTube to publish your video (if you love to make a good movies), let people know about them and wait.. I am sure someday you get some benefits from that. Last thing that I want to mentioned that it took me almost 6 months to make my job interview which is I think it’s not bad. So what you are waiting now start using social media for looking for a new job if you want to change your current job of course 😀

My plan for the New Year 2011

2010 was one of the best year I ever had in the last 3 decades, and I am happy that I am starting a next decade with new life and new job. So I summarize few things I will do them next year as part of continuous life improvement to myself 😀

  • I promise myself starting from next year to stop talking about politics. This means no more political discussions or argument, of course I will still read news and see how things around the world is going especially in my region but just the headlines no more no less. Enough politics
  • I decide to give myself a break every week from Technology  things and stay away from my laptop. I guess these things are consumed more than I think and there are lots of things in our life deserve to spend more time with.
  • Give more attention to people around me, and if I could help one person at least a month I will be statisfied with myself
  • Give more attention to my health, and take myself to a further step from where I am standing now.
  • Learn something new in my career path and add to it, also improve what I already have and polish it
  • Visiting the countries around specially France and Italy
  • Can’t tell you
  • Can’t tell you
  • Can’t tell you
  • Can’t tell you
  • Can’t tell you

Happy New Year and wish that all your plans become true

From Which Angle?

I know we can argue for hours on that but I still believe that everything in this world has its own beauty but it depends on which angle you are look into it. Even the worst situations or difficult times you can find a beauty or something beautiful on that. This is not hypothetical speech or just a speech from someone that sitting in high place and looking for people in the street, it is not the case, sometimes you will be in situation either you live it as it is and enjoy it or just make your life as a hell and everyday will be a nightmare. So you will have to choose either to live with it and find a beauty on that or have everyday a nightmare, it’s up to you. And don’t come back to me and said no there is no good side, I will going to tell you;  you didn’t look deep or you are just deep inside believe on that so you find something to hang out all your depression or failure on. Put it in a cube and flip it in every angle I am sure you will going to find the right angle to look on it.

Feeling with others

After few days using my new tool for money management Money Standards to see where my money goes, and I really I spend it. I was shocked how much money I spent for things not considered as essentials or just for fun. I know everybody needs to buy things to entertain himself or to show the bless that he own buy also he must feels with others. People who need such money for basic things like food, education or shelter. I guess to have balance in your life and inner peace you have to give as you take. Because you don’t know those people that you help now what they become in the future..

The Change, is a universal law

One of my friend told me a very interested story about a old man that has a small shop selling some food and stuff in an old village. The business was running quite well and sometimes sons of this old man come and help me him in his shop, and when his sons come for help he always asked them to change the places for boxes and goods on the shelves. So old boxes never stay on the same place for more than one week. One of the villager came to that old man and asked him, why you always doing that changing the places of things on the shelves. The old man replied look my son change is a universal law, if things stayed on their places for long time the dust will build on them and no one gonna buy them, so changing them from time to time will make sure that they will stay clean and other people may notice them and buy them… What I love in this story is whole point.. Change is a universal Law, we need a change in our life or dust will built on us and we will sink in the routine cycle of life and will never get out from it. So dear reader after finishing this line… Promise yourself to do a change in your life now and see how things will get better…
