  1. We are don’t specified the location you might be having your information, having said that wonderful issue. I has to invest some time figuring out a lot more or perhaps training a lot more. Thank you for amazing facts I became in search of this information for my vision.

    • In the late 80’s or early 90’s the first woman to address Iran’s (I bevilee it was the) national assembly was a philosopher. Apparently, because she was speaking as a philosopher, it also did not matter that she was a Jew. She did have to cover her hair though.

    • Actually, poets are national heores in Iran. People can quote 1000-year old poetry by heart. They do so often when making a point during discussions, and they’re not above making it up if necessary. Rumi, Saadi, Khayyam, etc.

    • It would be good to mention some facts about ppisolohhy in Iran:1-The current chairman of the parliament is philosopher.The former chairman of the Parliament was philosopher(Both of them teach the ppisolohhy of Kant in Tehran University).The current President of the Juditiary system is philosopher(he is expert in ethics and ppisolohhy of language)The former president of Iran,Mohammad Khatami,has BA in Western ppisolohhy.The brother of the supreme leader of iran,is one of the renown experts in the ppisolohhy of Avicenna and Masha’.I think ,it is the effect of Platonic tradition here.2-In Iran,there are especial interpretaions of western philosophers which are completely different with their real philosophies.For example two major groups of philosophers are Heideggerians and Popperians.There is hot debate between these groups about different subjects:Philosophy of science,philosophy of religion and political ppisolohhy.In fact,just in Iran,the ppisolohhy of Heidegger can conflict with the ppisolohhy of Sir Karl Popper!!

    • I agreed with and was glad to see Harvey not stnrtiag in the UConn game. His mood swings just isnt good enough. I think Lawrence and Theodore sharing the point guard position is just going to get better and better.The other position needing the change now is in the Center position. The UConn game shows proof again that Jon Garcia just isnt quick enough and doesnt have the Center moves to compete against the Centers in the Big East.Farrakon Hall is getting better and better and I think he should be sharing that position with Pope with Jeff Robinson coming to share the Power Forward Position with Pope. Then have Garcia come off the bench to deal with the oppositions bench Centers later in the game.He is just not Big East Good enough and is hurting the team. A couple of times you can see Garcia back away from positions underneath the basket where he could have made the easier rebound or block outs.

    face up, indeed. These cards these are known as the turn as well as the river
