I got this via email so I don’t know how true it is and when they’ll start using them in Kuwait:

“There is a new road tracking system on Dubai Roads. These are not just nicer looking radar cameras – they are a lot more lethal, so be careful.

First thing is that these cameras do not flash. They can take photos in complete darkness through ultra-light sensors, so even if it does not flash, it could have caught you. They also automatically read your number plate from the picture taken.

Now, comes the thing that catches most people. These cameras are continuous photo-taking cameras and they will take your photo regardless if you have been speeding or not. Then the next camera in 3-5 kms again does the same. Now, instead of checking your speed through advanced radars, these cameras are very simple and all they do is calculate how fast you traveled between the 2 cameras. If you arrived at the next camera faster than 120 km/h (or whatever the speed limit is) then you get fined.”

Thanks Tariq.



Interesting read from CNN’s Christiane Amanpour’s documentary. Here is an excerpt:

1980s: Iraq

CNN found that intervention is often weighed against political and economic costs.

Declassified U.S. government documents show that while Saddam Hussein was gassing Iraqi Kurds, the U.S. opposed punishing Iraq with a trade embargo because it was cultivating Iraq as an ally against Iran and as a market for U.S. farm exports.

According to Peter Galbraith, then an idealistic Senate staffer determined to stop Hussein from committing genocide, the Reagan administration “got carried away with their own propaganda. They began to believe that Saddam Hussein could be a reliable partner.”

Aloo Sahmek is an interesting idea that’ll come in handy if you were in a hurry and wanted to know about a certain stock. You’d just have to call them and you’ll get a speech recognition machine that’ll tell you all the info you need about your stock e.g. ask price, bid price and last traded deal price.
