A Stray Hero

Mohammad Azmi, a 55-year-old former contractor, has dedicated his life to rescuing stray dogs and cats, despite living in a country where dogs, especially, are considered taboo, filthy and un- Islamic. The Muslims who care for dogs are usually frowned upon, let alone touch and feed them.

However for Mohammad Azmi, who is fondly known as Pak Mie, his love for these animals is unconditional, as he, with the help from his wife, splurge their savings on the stray animals by providing a shelter, food and medication on daily basis, apart getting donations from concerned citizens. To date, he has rescued more than a whopping 600 stray animals, a figure that no other licensed shelters have ever accommodated.

This also means that they have to lead a simple life; so simple that they sleep in the car parked outside the shelter that they built just to make sure that no one harms the animals during the night.

Pak Mies activity has however attracted the attention from the local council, which in the other hand, usually resorts to killing the strays instead of putting them at animal shelters.

Although Pak Mie knows that he will never get anything in return by sacrificing his normal life, he is hopeful that he will continue to do so until his last breath.

Sam Harris: Fearless Among Peers

This is my first time seeing Sam Harris. This was directly after Neil Degrasse Tysons "Stupid Design" Speech. Also the moment I had a moment of clarity 3:50.

Sam Harris speaks in between lectures and answers questions of his peers. I named the video "Fearless Among Peers" due to the people present while he was speaking. Roger Bingham, Steven Weinberg, Lawrence Krauss, Michael Shermer, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Richard Dawkins, Scott Atran etc.

These Clips are from the "Beyond Belief: Science, Reason, Religion & Survival" November 5-7, 2006.

Century of the Self, Complete

Happiness Machines is a BBC documentary of how Sigmund Freud and his American nephew, Edward Bernays helped shape the consumerist society of today.

Bernays was one of the main architects of the modern techniques of mass-consumer persuasion.

He was one of the most influential people of the 20th century.

He showed American corporations how they could use Freuds ideas to make people want things they didn't need.
