One of the most depressing things about life sometimes, is that I move and move and move. That is how are my parents are. We are getting rid of so many things and child hood memories. I forgot what it was like to move, and I am feeling sorta depressed. I can’t miss East TN for the allergies though, never in this hell I live in. Any place but a place with allergies, I am incredibly sick of these migraines

[Lyrics On Screen] Get Your Shine On Lyrics - Florida Georgia Line [Get Your Shine On Lyrics] (by Joel Winters)
after listening to country for days through the months, and especially during some of the holiest days of Islam. I always hear country at work. I tend to have no control what i listen to at work. Another country song stuck in my head. YA RUB
Location data has been used by companies to help generate relevant ads and direct you to websites that are suited for your region, but interestingly Staples seems to have taken it one step further and now uses your location to help determine what kind of prices you will see on their website. According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, they have found that depending on where you live, and how close you are to a Staples competitor, the price reflected on its website will vary for a product viewed by someone else living in a different state or different suburb. The report from the Wall Street Journal has also found that areas in which the average household income is higher have prices which are more discounted versus areas in which average household income is lower, whereby prices are actually higher.
Staples isn’t the only retailer who engages in these practice and the Wall Street Journal also lists retailers such as Discover Financial Services, Rosetta Stone and Home Depot as being some of them. When asked about it, Staples acknowledged that “in-store and online prices do vary by geography due to a variety of factors, including rent, labor, distribution and other costs of doing business,” but declined to mention whether average household income was taken into account. Pretty interesting but what do you guys think? Price discrimination is definitely not something new where some countries actually pay more for a similar product compared to another, but do you think it’s fair that an item can be priced differently for someone who stays in the next neighborhood?

Lessons from “Nahjul Balaghah, Letter No.31, conveying his wishes to his son Imam Hassan (AS) following his death (wasiyat)
How many times have we wondered how to solve a problem? In his will to his son Imam Hassan (AS) Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (AS) indicates nine essential steps a person should take.
1. Seek Allah’s Help:
“And before you probe into this, you should begin by asking your Allah’s help, and turning to Him for competence…“
This is the first and foremost step. A Muslim relies solely on Allah’s and seeks His help only.
2. Clear Your Mind:
“…and keep aloof from everything that throws you into doubt or flings you towards misguidance. When you have made sure that your heart is clean and humble and your thoughts have come together and you have only one thought which is about the matter…”
“…but if you have not been able to achieve that peace of observation and thinking which you would like to have, then know that you are only stamping the ground like a blind she-camel and falling into darkness. it is better to avoid this…”
No irrelevant matters be brought into the equation when considering an issue.
3. Think Objectively:
“Then I feared that you might get confused as other peoples had been confused on account of their passions and (different) views.”
Emotions, prejudices and strongly held views should be set aside. The matter should be considered objectively.
4. Learn From Others:
“…place before it the events of past people…”
“…so that you might be ready to accept through your intelligence the results of the experience of others and be saved from going through these experiences yourself.”
A person should consider how others have tackled the issue or solved the problem. You can learn a lot from this and avoid repeating their mistakes.
5. Don’t Worry About Others:
“But when I confined myself to my own worries leaving the worries of others, my intelligence saved me and protected me from my desires.”
The consideration of public opinion – whether people will like what you do or not – should not enter into arriving at a decision.
“…make yourself the measure (for dealings) between you and others. Thus, you should desire for others what you desire for yourself and hate for others what you hate for yourself. Do not oppress as you do not like to be oppressed. Do good to others as you would like good to be done to you. Regard bad for yourself whatever you regard bad for others. Accept that (treatment) from others which you would like others to accept from you… Do not say to others what you do not like to be said to you.”
The decision (action) should not infringe on the right of others.
6. Acquire Knowledge First:
“Give up discussing what you do not know and speaking about what does not concern you.”
“Your search should first be by way of understanding and learning and not by falling into doubts or getting entangled in quarrels.”
A person should obtain all necessary knowledge about matters relating to the issue before arriving at a decision.
7. To Take Risks Or Not:
“Keep off the track from which you fear to go astray because refraining when there is fear of straying is better than embarking on dangers.”
“It is easier to rectify what you miss by silence than to secure what you lose by speaking.”
Unnecessary risks should be avoided. “Fools rush in where Angels fear to tread.”
“Leap into dangers for the sake of right wherever it be.”
One should not hesitate in taking a risk if and when necessary.
8. Don’t Overburden Yourself:
“Do not load your back beyond your power lest its weight become a mischief for you.”
One should only undertake a responsibility which one can fulfil – no more.
9. Should You Be Firm or Lenient:
“Where leniency is unsuitable, harshness is leniency. Often cure is illness and illness is cure. Often the ill-wisher gives correct advice while the well-wisher cheats.”
At times one has to be harsh to solve a problem. One should not hesitate to do this if necessary.
