Bush hosts Mohammed bin Zayed at Camp David

(Wam) Filed on June 29, 2008

CAMP DAVID — General Shaikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, yesterday arrived at Camp David presidential retreat.

President Bush welcomed Gen. Shaikh Mohammed to the rustic wooded retreat in the Maryland Mountains in typical fashion.

This visit was a return favour for Bush's stay in Abu Dhabi in January, during which he travelled to the Abu Dhabi Crown prince's desert playground, a remote encampment where he raises horses and prize falcons. Bush was feted there with a lavish feast.

After chatting and posing for cameras, the two leaders climbed into a golf cart and Bush squired his guest off for a tour of the grounds. They had a picnic dinner. Their official meetings — all private and closed to any media coverage — were scheduled for yesterday.

Scorpion Facts and Trivia: Part #1

Scorpion Babies

A scorpion can have as many as 100 babies in a single brood. They are born alive, not hatched from eggs like insects. When they are born, baby scorpions have a very soft outside shell, or exoskeleton. They crawl up onto their mother's back and ride there for 10 to 20 days until their exoskeleton gets stiff and hard. Then they crawl off and begin life on their own. 
Sometimes when the mother scorpion cannot find enough insects, bugs, or grub worms to eat, she will eat her own babies. Luckily this is only a last resort. Usually, the mother scorpion will eat her babies only to survive.

Venus Flytraps

Venus Flytraps Are Even Creepier Than We Thought

When it comes to digesting its prey, the plant is a calculating killer.

If you accidentally get transformed into a fly, and get caught in a Venus flytrap, here is some valuable advice: Don’t panic.

“If you just sit there and wait, the next morning, the trap will open and you can leave,” says Ranier Hedrich from the University of Würzburg. “If you panic, you induce a deadly cycle of disintegration.”

Hedrich and others have found that the Venus flytrap can count the number of times that its victims touch the sensory hairs on its leaves. One touch does nothing. Two closes the trap. Three primes the trap for digestion. And five, according to Hedrich’s latest study, triggers the production of digestive enzymes—and more touches mean more enzymes. The plant apportions its digestive efforts according to the struggles of its prey. And the fly, by fighting for its life, tells the plant to start killing it, and how vigorously to do so.

The Venus flytrap has captivated scientists for centuries, perhaps because of how un-plant-like it is. It captures and eats animals. Its leaves look unnervingly like fang-lined mouths. It moves quickly, with each of its traps closing shut in a tenth of a second. It has, on occasion, a fantastic singing voice. It is, as Charles Darwin said, “one of the most wonderful [plants] in the world.” To understand his admiration, it helps to slow things down, and see exactly what happens when the flytrap traps.

We start with a fly. It lands within the open halves of the flytrap’s trap, drawn there by the red color and fruity smell. The inner surfaces of the traps are minefields, dotted with stiff hairs. When one of these is bumped by a bumbling fly, it triggers a spike of calcium ions that send an electrical impulse through the lobes, much like those that travel along your neurons.

A single impulse means nothing; it could be triggered by wind-blown debris hitting a hair, or perhaps a falling raindrop. To avoid closing its traps for such false alarms, the flytrap is programmed to await a second signal.

The first impulse sets a secret timer, and what the fly does in the next 20 seconds will determine its fate. If it avoids the hairs, it will live. If it bumps a second one, it sets off another electrical impulse, which raises the trap’s calcium levels above a critical threshold. The plant responds by sending water into its leaves, which rapidly change shape from convex (bent outwards) to concave (bent inwards).

In other words, the trap snaps shut.

The fly is imprisoned but not dead. It struggles, knocking the trigger hairs even further and sending off more electrical impulses, around one per minute. The third impulse raises the trap’s calcium levels even further, prompting it to produce a hormone called jasmonate. In many plants, jasmonate is a touch hormone, which is released by wounds and injuries and coordinates programs of defense and repair. In the Venus fly trap, jasmonate doubles as a carnivory hormone. It primes the gland cells in the trap to start making digestive enzymes, which they finally do once they detect a fifth electrical impulse.

The plant carefully calibrates the supply of these enzymes to meet the demand for them. A large fly struggles more furiously, knocks more trigger hairs, and sets off more electrical impulses. The plant responds by making proportionally more jasmonate, and secreting proportionally more digestive enzymes.

After six to seven hours, the trap becomes hermetically sealed, and fills with fluid. The fly, cut off from the outside world and deprived of oxygen, asphyxiates—which is merciful, considering what happens next. The fluid inside the trap becomes incredibly acidic, dropping to a pH of 2. It also fills with meat-disintegrating enzymes. It turns into what Hedrich calls a “green stomach.”

The stomach takes several days to digest the dead fly, and the flytrap keeps up the assault of acid and enzymes by tasting its meal. The dead fly isn’t setting off any electrical impulses any more, but in as-yet-unpublished work, Hedrich has shown that the trap is also lined with chemical sensors. These can detect the chitin in the fly’s shell and the substances in its blood. So, as long as the plant can taste something to digest, it will keep digesting.

It also starts absorbing, doing the job of intestines as well as a stomach. The same five electrical impulses that trigger the production of digestive enzymes also activate a set of transporter enzymes, which absorb the sodium liberated from the disintegrating fly. Most plants detest salt, but the flytrap puts it to good use. By concentrating it within the traps, it can drag the water from the fly into its own tissues.

After a week or more, the trap opens, revealing the fly’s empty husk, which eventually falls out or blows away. The trap is now set for another victim. It will capture one or two more before the plant replaces it.   

Many of these details have been known for a long time, says Andrej Pavlovic from Comenius University in Bratislava. But Hedrich’s latest study finally shows that the flytrap can count electrical impulses to induce the digestive process. How it does so is still a mystery, and one that the team is actively trying to solve.

For now, it is clear that the plant is a paragon of efficiency. It ensures that it wastes no energy in capturing victims. It only closes its traps when it likely has a meal. It only starts producing fluids when it’s really sure that it has caught something. And it only continues digesting when there’s something to digest. And in doing so, it can thrive in nutrient-poor swamps and marshes where other plants struggle.

Nova . . . .

Explanation: A nova in Sagittarius is bright enough to see with binoculars. Discovered last month by the All-Sky Automated Survey for Supernovae (ASAS-SN), the stellar explosion even approached the limit of naked-eye visibility last week. A classical nova results from a thermonuclear explosion on the surface of a white dwarf star -- a dense star having the size of our Earth but the mass of our Sun. In the featured image, the nova was captured last week above ancient Wat Mahathat in Sukhothai, Thailand. To see Nova Sagittarius 2016 yourself, just go out just after sunset and locate near the western horizon the constellation of the Archer (Sagittarius), popularly identified with an iconic teapot. Also visible near the nova is the very bright planet Venus. Don’t delay, though, because not only is the nova fading, but that part of the sky is setting continually closer to sunset.

Faces Branded With Hot Irons:

To show ownership of the calves, workers on a cattle ranch that supplies JBS used hot irons to brand them on the face – without any pain relief and counter to the minimum animal-welfare recommendations by the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture. Older cattle were also forced into chutes, where they panicked and kicked as workers branded them on the back.

Some of the Names of Allaah and their meanings:

Some of the Names of Allaah and their meanings:

Praise be to Allaah.

This is a question which needs a very long answer, but we will summarize it as follows:

Firstly, the names of Allaah are not limited to any specific number. We know some of them and do not know others, as is indicated by the hadeeth of ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood (may Allaah be pleased with him), who said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘There is no one among you who, when he is stricken with distress and grief, says, O Allaah, I am Your slave, sone of Your slave and son of Your maidservant, my forelock is in Your hand. Your command over me is forever executed and Your decree over me is just. I ask You by every name belonging to You which You named Yourself with, or You taught to any of Your creation, or revealed in Your Book, or You have preserved in the knowledge of the Unseen with You, that You nmake the Qur’aan the life of my heart and the light of my breast, and a departure for my sorrow and a release for my anxiety” – but Allaah will remove his distress and his grief, and will give him joy instead…” (Reported by Imaam Ahmad, 3582; it is a saheeh hadeeth).

Secondly, The names of Allaah are all husnaa [Most Beautiful], as He says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And (all) the Most Beautiful Names belong to Allaah, so call on Him by them, and leave the company of those who belie or deny (or utter impious speech against) His Names. They will be requited for what they used to do.”

[al-A’raaf 7:180]

The meaning of al-husnaa implies the utmost beauty, and that each name includes the quality of perfection.

Al-‘Allaamah ‘Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Naasir ibn Sa’di (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: Many of the names of Allaah have been mentioned in the Qur’aan, according to the context, but we also need to point out their broader meanings, so we say:

Al-Noor (the Light). He is the Light of the heavens and of the earth, who enlightens the hearts of the ‘aarifeen (those who have proper knowledge of Him) with knowledge of Him and fills their hearts with the light of His guidance. He is the One Who illuminates the heavens and the earth with the lights that He has placed therein. His veil is Light and if it were to be removed, everything of His creation as far as He can see would be burnt, may He be glorified.

Al-‘Aliyy (the Exalted), al-A’laa (the Most High). He is the One Who is completely exalted in all aspects, in His essence, in His status, in His attributes and in His dominion. He is the One Who rose over the Throne and Who dominates all things. In all the attributes of might, pride, glory and beauty that are ascribed to Him, He reaches the ultimate level.

Al-Majeed (the Most Glorious), al-Kabeer (the Most Great), al-‘Azeem (the Most Great), al-Jaleel (the Sublime One). These Names describe Allaah with attributes of glory, pride, greatness and majesty. He is greater than everything, more mighty, more majestic and more exalted. To Him belong glorification and exaltation in the hearts of His close friends and devoted slaves, whose hearts are filled with veneration of His might and humble submission to His glory.

Al-‘Azeez (the Almighty), to whom belong all might and power, the power of strength, the power of dominion, the power of invincibility. None of His creatures can harm Him. He has subjugated all that exists, and the whole of creation is under His control and is subject to His might.

Al-Qahhaar (the Subduer). He is the Subduer of all things, to Whom all of creation submits because of His power and strength and the perfection of His Might.

Dhoo’l-Jalaali wa’l-Ikraam (Possessor of Majesty and Honour), i.e., the Possessor of Might and Pride, the Possessor of Mercy and Generosity, Who is kind to everyone and to specific individuals. He honours His close friends and devoted worshippers who glorify Him, extol His greatness and love Him.

Al-Hakam (the Judge), al-‘Adl (the Just). He judges between His slaves in this world and the next, with His justice and fairness. He does not oppress anyone in the slightest, and no one is made to bear the burden of another person’s sin. He does not punish a person more than he deserves for his sin, he restores to people their rights and does not leave anyone without restoring what is his right. He is just in His running of the universe and in His decision making.

“… Verily, My Lord is on a Straight Path (the truth)…”

[Hood 11:56 – interpretation of the meaning].

Al-Hayy (the Ever-Living), al-Qayyoom (the Self-Sustaining). He is completely alive and sustains Himself, and He sustains and cares for the people of heaven and earth. He controls their affairs and provides for them. The name al-Hayy encompasses all the qualities of His essence and the name al-Qayyoom encompasses all the qualities of His deeds.

Al-Ghaniy (the Self-Sufficient), al-Mughni (the Enricher). He is independent in and of Himself, and is completely Independent in all aspects, because of His perfection and the perfection of His attributes. Nothing can undermine His perfection and make Him imperfect in any way whatsoever. He cannot be anything but Self-Sufficient, because this self-sufficiency is one of His essential qualities, just as He cannot be anything but the Creator, the Able, the Provider, the Kind, Who does not need anyone else at all.

He is the Self-Sufficient in Whose hands are the treasures of the heavens and the earth, the treasures of this world and of the Hereafter. He gives His creation enough in general terms so that they do not have to seek help of anyone else, and He gives to specific people of the divine knowledge and realities of faith with which He has filled their hearts.

Al-Qareeb (the Ever-Near), al-Mujeeb (the Responsive). Allaah, may He be glorified, is near to everyone, and His nearness is of two types:

His nearness to everyone in a general sense, through His knowledge, watching, awareness and witnessing, which encompass all things.

His nearness in a specific sense, to His slaves, those who ask help of Him and those who love Him. The true nature of this closeness cannot be understood, but its effects may be seen in His kindness towards His slave, and His care, support and help of him. Another of its effects is His response to those who call on Him and His acceptance of the repentance of those who worship Him. He is also the One Who responds in a specific way to those who respond to Him and follow His religion. He also responds to those who are in need and to those who no longer have any hope in any of His creation, and who put their trust in Him, hoping for His pleasure and fearing His wrath.

From Tayseer al-Kareem al-Rahmaan fi Tafseer Kalaam al-Mannaan by Shaykh ‘Abd al-Rahmaan al-Sa’di (5/620).

Happy Maha Shivaratri / Shivaratri -- my favorite Radio FM shock jocks: I'm a staunch pro–life activist. I celeberate Maha Shivaratri / Shivaratri with my Radio FM comrades by reaffirming my vows to RESPECT ALL LIVING CREATURES, that also, of course means Plant Life. Just like my Jain comrades. Happy Maha Shivaratri / Shivaratri -- once again, comrades. Particularly: Today, I strictly observe nonviolence toward ALL living creatures. I sincerely try not to trample even creepers (Plants such as ivy), wild mushrooms and so–called insignificant weeds. I also believe for some unbeknownst reason that it's auspicious to keep snails EVEN in a teensy–weensy aquarium as kids' exotic -- aquatic chaperone / roommates. Snails are talismanic and harbingers of sphinxlike spunk to overcome any debilitating jinxes --  thwart every masquerading evil / evil in all its sinister, slick and salamander-like slimy manifestations / mutations.

Let's start afresh. No dismissive and arrogant shrug. No brush-off either with your characteristic poker–faced look -- that mock-serious glint in your eyes promptly followed by a devilish grin.

Bye for now.


The Whirling Dervish

Yep, it's me: Your Hunchbacked Mentor who purportedly walks with a slight stagger -- It's a misnomer but I love it albeit reluctantly and coyly. You'd call me anything: Folk hero, Yeti, Bigfoot, Mister Lilliputian or Mister Brobdingnagian from The island of Lilliput or Our Heroicomical Alexander Selkirk or Captain Kirk.

Yep, I believe with irrevocable die–hardism in the sailors' maxim that The Captain Goes Down With The Ship BUT The Lighthouse Keepers are my Comrades: Watch out for choppy waters -- You ain't getting shipwrecked -- STOP fretting -- Mister Archie! By the way, who's on board with you now: Miss Betty or Miss Veronica? Still double–crossing 'em Mister lady–killer eh? Ferret! Bon voyage: Sinbad. See you REAL SOON. Don't forget to bring some unearthly souvenirs -- And, one more thing: We got your Message In A Bottle on time. Your lovelorn and dumbstruck Mermaids are perfect and swift couriers! Shoo!
