Does anyone here understand Kurd?

It occurs to me that there may be a language barrier here. I have tried to get an online translater for arabic and kurd, but they do not seem to exist. I have read a comparisons of christianity and islam. They are not so different. It is difficult to even find a key point that is worth fighting over.

There is a story I heard recently that indicates the language barrier goes both ways. A Canadian was kidnapped in Iraq, held for a few months and then rescued by British Forces, many thanks. In the interview, He told a storyÂabout Chrismas that year. He said his captors missed chrismas by a couple of days. Anyway, somehow somewhere they learned of their oversight. They didn’t understand the chrismas celibration but they somehow figured out it had something to do with Jesus Christ’s birthday. So these people baked a cake and sang happy birthday. What a sweet, sad, headspinning headache of a misunderstanding.

Is it possible the whole conflict is just a misunderstanding?

The dog days of summer

It was 42 celceius yesterday. That’s hot even for Lytton. I wanted something new on the page. I have been thinking about the music industry lately. They have a problem and so far solutions are vuage. The rules have not kept up with technology. How do you protect intellectual property rights of music in such a slippery world as the internet, without crushing the rights of everyone else there?

I think the answer might be to sell the rights too the songs, one person at a time. Register your name on every song buy. You don’t buy a song twice, weither you keep a copy or not it’s yours. You may retrieve another copy at a later time if you want to. If everyone owns a little piece of the song it should be self-policing. The way it is now it’s a conspiracy of silence. nobody says anything because most everyone has someÂunregistered copies.

Also the music industry has to get real, not every song ever recorded is worth a dollar and frankly who would pay $5000.00 to fill an MP3 player. Coupons, bulk purchases, sales, demo pricing etc., all must be considered.

Also the presentation, Personally I don’t want to spend my life uploading songs to my MP3 player. It would be worth a modest fee to have the songs selected and loaded for me, doesn’t that sound like a new industry?
