Understanding Islam and Muslim Militants

1. What is Islam? * Islam is: Submit to God. ‘Islam’ means submit to His will and guidance, as enunciated in the holy Quran. Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, and Zoroastrians all are told in their religious scriptures to submit to the will of God. This is the teaching in Bible, Gita, and all other religious scriptures, as well. We must surrender to the will of God. Thus on this belief, there is no difference in all religions of the world – except Buddhism, which does not believe in existence of God. *’Islam’ is a verb – to ‘submit’ to the will of God; but more often than not, it is linked with militancy, albeit wrongly. The moderate Muslims, who are in majority, have chosen not to condemn militants or their violence, out of fear or for whatever the reason. 2. Muslims believe in monotheism * Muslims believe in one God. Christians,

Title IX: Unjustly Blamed

On January 19, 2011, the University of Delaware cut two men’s sports teams: cross country and outdoor track and field. UD’s athletic department said the move was to stay in compliance with Title IX. However, UD is not the only college cutting men’s sports. Just recently, the University of North Dakota cut two of their men’s teams.

Title IX was created in 1972 to end gender discrimination in education programs that receive federal financial assistance. The law has made massive strides in advancing gender equality, especially when it comes to women’s sports.

Search Engine Optimization's Frequently Confused Concepts

When I started working with the parent company of the search engine optimization company I currently manage, I spent a lot of time on the phone with prospects and clients. I was always amazed by misconceptions given to so many people about how to get a top listing in a search engine. Often times, I felt as though people were educating them with literature written in the early nineties. Unfortunately, the penalty for some of these techniques is not just a bad ranking but rather permanent delisting or banning. Nobody wants to be banned! I have organized a list of concepts that people confuse or as I like to call them "Frequently Confused Concepts". The most frequently confused concept of search engine optimization is the value of meta tags. Way back before search engines were sophisticated enough to scan and save the content of your web site, they would simply
