The Four Types of People in the World عن

The Four Types of People in the World

عن أبي كبشة الأنماري رضي الله عنه أنه سمع رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم يقول ثلاث أقسم عليهن وأحدثكم حديثا فاحفظوه قال ما نقص مال عبد من صدقة ولا ظلم عبد مظلمة صبر عليها إلا زاده الله عزا ولا فتح عبد باب مسألة إلا فتح الله عليه باب فقر أو كلمة نحوها وأحدثكم حديثا فاحفظوه قال إنما الدنيا لاربعة نفر عبد رزقه الله مالا وعلما فهو يتقي فيه ربه ويصل فيه رحمه ويعلم لله فيه حقا فهذا بأفضل المنازل وعبد رزقه الله علما ولم يرزقه مالا فهو صادق النية يقول لو أن لي مالا لعملت بعمل فلان فهو بنيته فأجرهما سواء وعبد رزقه الله مالا ولم يرزقه علما يخبط في ماله بغير علم ولا يتقي فيه ربه ولا يصل فيه رحمه ولا يعلم لله فيه حقا فهذا بأخبث المنازل وعبد لم يرزقه الله مالا ولا علما فهو يقول لو أن لي مالا لعملت فيه بعمل فلان فهو بنيته فوزرهما سواء رواه أحمد والترمذي واللفظ له وقال حديث حسن صحيح (الترغيب و الترهيب 1/66)

Hadhrat Abu Kabsha (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that he heard Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) say: “I take a qasm upon three things, and in this regard I will narrate a Hadith to you, so remember it.” He then said: “Through discharging sadaqah, one’s wealth does not decrease. The one who exercises patience upon the oppression done against him, Allah Ta’ala will grant him respect and honour. Whenever a servant opens the door of begging (from the creation), Allah Ta’ala opens the door of want and poverty for him.”

I will narrate to you a Hadith, so remember it. The world contains four types of people.

The first person is he who Allah Ta’ala blessed with wealth and knowledge (Deeni knowledge). In regard to the use of the wealth he fears Allah Ta’ala and he uses it to maintain family ties, and he is mindful of the rights of Allah Ta’ala in his wealth. This is the most virtuous person and greatest in rank.

The second person is he who Allah Ta’ala blessed with knowledge (Deeni knowledge) but did not grant him wealth. However on account of him possessing a sincere heart, he expresses the intention (with firm determination) before Allah Ta’ala that had he possessed wealth he would have surely carried out deeds of generosity as the first person carried out. Thus he will receive reward based on his intention, and he and the first person will both be equal in (receiving) reward.

The third person is he whom Allah Ta’ala gave wealth, however He did not bless him with knowledge (Deeni knowledge). He squanders his wealth ignorantly, and does not fear Allah Ta’ala regarding his wealth, nor does he use the wealth to maintain family ties, nor is he mindful of the rights of Allah Ta’ala in his wealth. This person is the most despicable and the worst in rank.

The fourth person is he whom Allah Ta’ala did not bestow him with wealth or knowledge. He says (and desires within his heart with full determination) that had he possessed wealth, then he would have surely carried out evil deeds as the third person carried out. Thus he will receive sin based on his intention (i.e. due to his determination upon carrying out sin, he will be sinful in the court of Allah Ta’ala), and he and the third person will both be equal in (receiving) sin.

சாயம் வெளுக்கிறது… சரித்திரம் சிரிக்கிறது!
4 ஆண்டு தண்டனையும் 4 பேரும்!
– ப.திருமாவேலன்
சாயம் போவது புதுத்துணியில் மட்டுமல்ல; சில பெரிய மனிதர்களின் வாழ்க்கையிலும் அவ்வப்போது நடப்பதுதான். வருமானத்துக்கு அதிகமாக சொத்துச் சேர்த்த குற்றச்சாட்டின் அடிப்படையில் நான்கு ஆண்டு சிறைத் தண்டனையும் 100 கோடி ரூபாய் அபராதமும் பெற்ற ஜெயலலிதாவின் விவகாரத்திலும் பலர் அம்பலப்பட்டுப் போனார்கள். அதில் நான்கு பேரைப் பற்றி மட்டும் இங்கே:

ராம் ஜெத்மலானி!
இந்தியாவின் புகழ்பெற்ற வழக்கறிஞர்களில் முதல் 10 பேரில் ஒருவர். அவரது ஒரு மணிநேர வாதத்துக்கான பைசா எவ்வளவு என்பது அவருக்கும் வாதிக்கும் மட்டுமே தெரியும். உச்ச நீதிமன்றத்தில்தான் தினமும் வலம் வருவார். பிரேமானந்தாவுக்காக புதுக்கோட்டை சப் கோர்ட்டுக்கும் இறங்கி வந்தவர். அவர்தான் ஜெயலலிதாவுக்கு தண்டனை தரப்பட்டதுமே, ‘இது தவறான தீர்ப்பு’ என்று அறிக்கைவிட்டு, அதன் மூலமாக கர்நாடக உயர் நீதிமன்றத்தில் ஜாமீன் மனு மீது வாதாடும் வாய்ப்பைப் பெற்றார். இதே ராம் ஜெத்மலானிதான், ஜெயலலிதா மற்றும் அவரது சகாக்கள் மீதான சொத்துக் குவிப்பு வழக்கு பற்றி விசாரிக்க அமைக்கப்பட்ட மூன்று தனி நீதிமன்றங்களைக் காப்பாற்றுவதற்குப் பெரும் முயற்சி எடுத்தவர் என்பது முந்தைய வரலாறு.
ராம் ஜெத்மலானியின் நெருங்கிய நண்பரின் மகள் நளினி கேரா. இவர் ராம் ஜெத்மலானியின் அதிகாரபூர்வமான வரலாற்றை எழுதி இருக்கிறார். ஏராளமான ரகசியத் தகவல்கள் உள்ளடக்கிய புத்தகம் அது.
1998-ம் ஆண்டு அமைந்த பி.ஜே.பி கூட்டணியில் அ.தி.மு.க-வும் இடம்பெற்றது. அப்போது பி.ஜே.பி-யில் இருந்த ராம் ஜெத்மலானி தனக்காக சட்டத் துறை அமைச்சர் பொறுப்பைக் கேட்டார். ஆனால், அதை தம்பிதுரைக்கு வாங்கிக் கொண்டார் ஜெயலலிதா. ”அப்போது ராம் ஜெத்மலானிக்கு சட்டத் துறை அமைச்சகம் கிடைக்காமல் போனதற்கு ஜெயலலிதாதான் காரணமா என்று தெரியாது. அந்தப் பதவியை தன்னுடைய கட்சி உறுப்பினரான தம்பிதுரைக்கு ஜெ. கேட்டார். அவர் மீது எண்ணற்ற ஊழல் வழக்குகள் பதிவு செய்யப்பட்டிருந்தன. அவர் கைது செய்யப்பட்டு ஒரு மாதத்துக்கும் மேலே சிறையில் வைக்கப்பட்டிருந்தார். தன்னுடைய நலன்களைக் காக்கக் கூடிய ஒருவரை அமைச்சரவையில் தலைமைப் பொறுப்புக்குக் கொண்டுவர விரும்பினார்” என்று நளினி கேரா எழுதுகிறார்.
இதன்பிறகு ஜெயலலிதா – ராம் ஜெத்மலானி மோதல் தொடர்கிறது. கூட்டணியில் அங்கம் வகித்தாலும் மத்திய அமைச்சர்கள் மீது தொடர்ந்து குற்றச்சாட்டுகளை வெளிப்படையாக வைத்தார் ஜெயலலிதா. அதில் ஜெத்மலானியும் அடக்கம். ‘ஃபெரா’ விதிகளை மீறி ராம் ஜெத்மலானி இரண்டு லட்சம் டாலர் அளவுக்கு சொத்து சேர்த்ததாகவும் அதனை அமலாக்கத் துறை விசாரித்ததாகவும் அவரைப் பதவியைவிட்டு நீக்க வேண்டும் என்றும் ஜெயலலிதா அறிக்கை வெளியிட்டார்.
அப்போது ராம் ஜெத்மலானி, ‘சில பேர் சிறையைவிட்டு வெளியே வரும்போது பணிவு மற்றும் நற்குணம் கொண்டவர்களாக மாறிவிடுகிறார்கள். மேலும் சிலர் ஆணவம் மற்றும் பொறுப்பின்மை கொண்டவர்களாக மாறி நல்லவற்றையும் தீயவற்றையும் வேறுபடுத்த முடியாமல் செயல்படுகிறார்கள். என்னைப் பற்றி இப்படி ஓர் அறிக்கை வெளியிட ஜெயலலிதா யார்? என்னுடைய சுய கௌரவத்தைத் தாக்க அவர் யார்?” என்று பெங்களூரில் நடந்த கூட்டத்தில் பகிரங்கமாகக் கேட்டார்.
மத்திய சட்ட அமைச்சராக இருந்த தம்பிதுரை, தமிழகத்தில் அமைக்கப்பட்ட சிறப்பு நீதிமன்றங்களை ரத்து செய்தார். அப்போது மத்திய அமைச்சர் ராம் ஜெத்மலானி என்ன செய்தார் என்பதும் இந்தப் புத்தகத்தில் வருகிறது: ”இதற்கு எதிராக ராம் கடுமையான எதிர்வினை ஆற்றினார். ஒரு கூட்டாளிக்காக நீதித் துறையின் அதிகாரத்தைக் குறைப்பது தவறு என்றார். அட்டர்னி ஜெனரல் சொராப்ஜி அதைத் தடுத்திருக்க முடியும். ஆனால், அவர் தடுக்காமல் போனதற்கு அவருக்கென்று சொந்தக் காரணங்கள் இருந்தன’ என்று ராம் உறுதியாக நம்பினார். தி.மு.க அரசை கலைக்க வேண்டும் என்ற ஜெயலலிதாவின் கோரிக்கையை பிரதமர் ஏற்கக் கூடாது என்று ராம் தீவிரமாக வாஜ்பாய்க்கு வலியுறுத்தினார். அ.தி.மு.க-வைக் கூட்டணியைவிட்டு வெளியேற்ற வேண்டும் என்றும் சொன்னார். மே 14 அன்று மத்திய அரசின் உத்தரவு செல்லாது என்று உச்ச நீதிமன்றம் அறிவித்தது ராமின் முந்தைய முடிவு சரி என்பதை நிரூபித்தது” என்கிறது அந்தப் புத்தகம்.
அதாவது ஜெயலலிதா மீதான வழக்குகளை விசாரிக்க அமைக்கப்பட்ட சிறப்பு நீதிமன்றங்களைக் காப்பாற்றுவதற்காக பி.ஜே.பி அரசாங்கத்தில் பகீரத பிரயத்தனங்கள் செய்த ராம் ஜெத்மலானிதான் 15 ஆண்டுகளில் பெரும் பல்டி அடித்துவிட்டார்.
ஃபாலி நாரிமன்!
முதலமைச்சர் ஜெயலலிதா மற்றும் அவரது அமைச்சரவை சகாக்கள் மீதான 48 வழக்குகளை விசாரிக்க 1997-ம் ஆண்டு தனி நீதிமன்றம் அமைக்கப்பட்டது. நீதிபதிகள் வி.ராதாகிருஷ்ணன்,…

Al Khwarizmi – The Father of Algebra

Al Khwarizmi – The Father of Algebra
It was one of the golden periods of Islamic history when the Islamic empire stretched from the Mediterranean Sea to India, under the rule of the Abbasids. Baghdad was the world’s center of learning during this era. The House of Wisdom in Baghdad was the stage where a famous Muslim scholar was engaged in translating all the known Greek scientific works of the time into Arabic. He was to become known as the Father of Algebra and his name was Abu Jaffar Mohammad Ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi. He is considered to be one of the most influential mathematicians in history.

It’s a little known fact that the word “algorithm” is derived from his name. Also, the much feared word “algebra” is derived from the word “al-jabr”, from the title of his most famous book Al-Maqala fi Hisab-al Jabr wa-al-Muqabilah.

Early Life of Al Khwarizmi

Very little is known with certainty about his early life. He was born possibly in 780 CE to a Persian family living in Khwarizm situated in Khorasan, which was a part of the Persian Empire. He worked under the patronage of the Abbasside caliph Al Mamun. His illustrious life concluded in 840 CE or 850 CE.

His Magnus Opus

Photo Credit: MuslimHeritage.com

His most famous and and most influential work was Al-Kitab al-mukhtasar fi hisab al-jabr wa’l-muqabala (The Compendious Book on Calculation by Completion and Balancing). The book was written around 830 CE under the patronage of Caliph Al Mamun. Since this book discusses algebra, you would expect it to be filled with fearsome mathematical notations but interestingly, it is not. The notations that we are used to seeing in our books, were not invented yet so Al Khwarizmi used text to explain the algebraic problems. In this book he tried to solve everyday problems with the use of algebra.
This book introduced three fundamental concepts:

Reduction: Reducing an expression into a simpler form
Completion: Making a negative quantity positive by moving it to the other side of the equation
Balancing: Subtracting the same number from both sides by changing the signs
Al Khwarizmi’s Contributions to Various Fields of Science

Al Khwarizmi made contributions in various fields of science including Mathematics, Astronomy and Geography.

Hindu numeral system: One of his most important contributions was to recognize and propagate the importance of Hindu numerals from 1-9. He combined it with 0, which was developed by the Arabs and it was called the Hindu-Arab numeral system. The introduction of zero was a revolutionary concept, which changed the future of mathematics and many other fields of science.

Astronomy: Al Khwarizmi left a considerable amount of work on astronomy. His works include calendars, calculations of the positions of celestial bodies such as sun, moon and various planets, calculations of sines and tangents, astrological tables, etc. He expounded extensively on the works of ancient Indian astronomers.

Geography: He performed very influential and extensive research on geography. His major contribution was correcting and improving Ptolemy’s work based on his own findings. He worked with a team of geographers to create a map of the known world. He presented locations (latitude and longitude) of over 2000 cities, oceans, mountains and other places in the world at the time. Another work by him involved degree measurements to find the circumference and volume of Earth, which was commissioned by the caliph Mamun.

Famous Books by Al Khwarizmi

Al Khwarizmi’s books were taught in the universities of the Arab world as well as throughout Europe till the sixteenth century. Some of his famous books include:

Kitab al-Jam ‘a wal- Ta freeq bil Hisab al-Hindi on Arithmetic
Kitab Surat-al-Ard, on Geography
Istihhraj Tarikh al-Yahud, on Jewish calendar
Kitab al-Tarikh
Kitab al-Rukhmet about sun-dials

CONSPIRACY Russia and US Intel Release N

CONSPIRACY Russia and US Intel Release New Smoking Gun Evidence on 9/11! Names of Who Did It By DNA
onSeptember 23, 2014 74SHARESSHARE TWEET SHARE SHARE 2 COMMENTS

By Glenn Canady

The following interview by US Intelligence is the most shocking I have ever heard. Gordon Duff released bombshell after bombshell in this hour and 38 minutes! The Russians just released some key information about 9/11, ISIS and much more! Never in history have the names of those involved been released that were involved in the attacks. It includes a person that became the first head of the Department of Homeland Security, a Former Mayor of New York City during 9/11 and the Police Commissioner of New York City during 9/11! Most of you are smart enough to either know whose these people are or can Google to see who I’m talking about. Since Gordon did not actually name them I’m not going to name them either but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure it out!

BeforeItsNews is getting a world exclusive on this information because the guys at VeteransToday haven’t even had time yet to get out one of their great articles on what was discussed. So you’re getting this information first on BIN and I ask ALL of you to share this article and give it the exposure it deserves today! Share to ALL social media, email lists, Facebook walls, Facebook Groups, Twitter (tell them to RETWEET) and all social networks! Below this video I have put some bullet point notes of just some of the topics discussed! There were so many shocking reveals in this one that it’s going to blow your mind! There’s a grand jury in Houston Texas on much of the things discussed here. So if you want to see the world wake up to 9/11 then get this article and video out everywhere! Only US Intel (VeteransToday.com) is putting out the truth on 9/11. Their information is being censroed on all mainstream media and fake alternative media (tip of the spear people).

Gordon Duff Reveals Huge Russian and US Intelligence On Who Did 9/11 and Much More! Listen to the entire interview. The micro nuke information and 9/11 begins around the 32:00 minute mark but huge information is at the beginning too! Don’t miss any of it!

The following are some of my notes from this interview. So much was covered, this is only part of it!

Gordon covers how Daily Kos is a piece of garbage media operation that is trying to cover up the murder plot by Senator Songstad and Governor Sundquist that was broken right here on BIN! Daily Kos said that US Intelligence made it all up! Gordon challenges everybody to match the voices for themselves and challenges everybody to get the word out on this HUGE story! All the fakes in alternative media (tip of spear people) have censored it!

Sundquist who was just caught on tape plotting murder said he’s going to head the Republican party!

VeteransToday now has more nuclear weapons designers on staff as writers and technical advisers than the country of Iran! Gordon reveals he runs the largest worldwide intelligence operation in the world and was in charge of security for Leo Wanta after President H.W. Bush put him in prison and stole the money meant for the American people. $27 Trillion! By the way, the tip of the spear person in alternative media still lies and says Lee Wanta is “as real as the Easter Bunny”. Remember all lies come from satan! These fakes in alternative media also keep telling eerybody to get thieir information from Drudge when US Intel has already revealed Drudge is an Israeli agent working for the same people that nuked our towers on 9/11! This word must get out!

The war in Ukraine is now officially a nuclear war! VT sent photos of the strike on the factory in Donetsk and their initial analysis says it was a Lance missile that is only used by Israel and was designed to carry a micro nuke. A nuclear weapon might have also been used in Lugansk.

Russians are very upset at what has happened in Ukraine and to retaliate have…

On 6 May, Israelis celebrated their “independence day,” which they mark according to the Jewish lunar calendar.

Traditionally Israeli Jews hold public celebrations and picnics, especially in “national parks” typically built over the ruins of ethnically cleansed and destroyed Palestinian villages.

Meanwhile, with broad support from the Israeli Jewish public, Palestinian public commemorations of the Nakba – the ethnic cleansing of Palestine – can be punished by law.

Many of the Israeli festivities are celebrations of the so-called “Israel Defense Forces,” better known to Palestinians as the army that occupies them, arrests and kills their children with impunity and helps settlers to steal their land.

ISRAEL-66 YEARS-INDEPENDENCE DAY

Some of these disturbing images of Israeli children being put through military-style training displays at Efrat, an illegal Israeli colony in the occupied West Bank, have been circulating widely online and were published in Haaretz and other media.

A repeated theme of pro-Israeli, anti-Palestinian propaganda is to circulate images of Palestinian children taking part in such militarized displays in order to advance the belief that Palestinian culture is inherently violent and “teaches children hate” and that therefore Israeli violence is a justified defensive response.

But these pictures are remarkable because they reveal the extent to which Israeli culture has been militarized and how Israeli children are not immune to this – a key theme in Max Blumenthal’s book Goliath.

There is no doubt that both Israeli and Palestinian children have been subjected to this kind of brutalization by adults. It is horrifying whenever children are given guns and encouraged to imagine themselves as killers.

Such activities are arguably in violation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which states that member countries “shall refrain from recruiting any person who has not attained the age of fifteen years into their armed forces.”

As I wrote on a previous occasion when such disturbing images of Israeli children appeared:

Children live with the consequences of Israel’s violent occupation and oppression of the Palestinian people, whether it is Israeli children indoctrinated to continue this oppression as adults, or Palestinian children brutalized and traumatized by the organized violence of occupation, colonialism and apartheid that pervades their lives.

This is never a reflection on the children, but on the adults who subject them to such ugliness.

Rela Mazali is the founder of New Profile (newprofile.org), an Israeli organization that supports conscientious objection and advocates for individual refusers.

Alan-Hart-Israeli-Connection Did Certain

Alan-Hart-Israeli-Connection
Did Certain Foreign Governments Facilitate the 9/11 Attacks?

– and why is the US government keeping the evidence a secret?

by Justin Raimondo | antiwar

Some thirteen years after the event, the shadow of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in Manhattan and the Pentagon still darkens our world. The legacy of that terrible day has impacted not only our foreign policy, bequeathing to a new generation an apparently endless “war on terrorism,” it also has led directly to what is arguably the most massive assault on our civil liberties since the Alien and Sedition Acts. Getting all the information about what happened that day – and why it happened – is key to understanding the course we have taken since.

This was supposed to have been the purpose of the 9/11 Commission, whose massive report is now looked to as the primary source on the subject. Yet there is another, far more specific investigative report, the one issued by the intelligence committees of both houses of Congress, entitled “Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001.”

If you actually take the time to read the report, all goes along swimmingly (except for occasional redactions) until you get to p. 369, whereupon the text is blacked out for the next twenty-eight pages.

What is in the twenty-eight censored pages? You aren’t allowed to know that, but members of Congress can read them provided they write to the heads of the Senate and House intelligence committees and get permission. If such is granted, they are escorted into a soundproof carefully guarded room in the company of various spooks, where they get to read the material: they aren’t allowed to take notes.

Do you get the impression someone has something to hide?

The censored section is entitled “Finding, Discussion and Narrative Regarding Certain Sensitive National Security Matters,” and the introduction – left largely intact – is instructive:

“Through its investigation, the Joint Inquiry developed information suggesting specific sources of foreign support for some of the September 11 hijackers while they were in the United States. The Joint Inquiry’s review confirmed that the Intelligence Community also has information, much of which has yet to be independently verified, concerning these potential sources of support. In their testimony, neither CIA nor FBI officials were able to address definitively the extent of such support for the hijackers globally or within the United States or the extent to which such support, if it exists, is knowing or inadvertent in nature.”

The alleged Saudi connection to the 9/11 attacks has had a lot of play: it is widely believed that in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 special permission was given to fly members of the Saudi royal family out of the country when the whole nation was in lockdown. This raised suspicions, along with the incontrovertible fact that the majority of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudi citizens. In a 2002 interview with Gwen Ifill on PBS, Senator Bob Graham of Florida, then on the Senate Intelligence Committee, went public with the news that foreign governments were in on the 9/11 attacks:

“GWEN IFILL: “Senator Graham, are there elements in this report, which are classified that Americans should know about but can’t?”

SEN. BOB GRAHAM: “Yes, going back to your question about what was the greatest surprise. I agree with what Senator Shelby said the degree to which agencies were not communicating was certainly a surprise but also I was surprised at the evidence that there were foreign governments involved in facilitating the activities of at least some of the terrorists in the United States.”

In the years since his retirement, Sen. Graham has been steadily pounding away at this point, and his persistence has usually been interpreted as a demand to reveal the extent of Saudi complicity in the attacks. And while the Saudis may well have been…

‘Indian Muslims will live, die for nation’

PM sends out strong message to terror outfits

Article published in Deccan Herald Newspaper September 20, 2014 Bangalore edition.

Weeks after alQaeda announced that it was planning a local outfit in India to carry out jihad, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the terrorist organisation will struggle to employ Indian Muslims who will “live and die” for the country instead of “dancing to their tune”.

Modi reposing confidence in the country’s Muslims is seen by the BJP as an attempt to send a strong global message that India is not a hunting ground for the fundamentalists like the Islamic State which is trying to recruit youths from different countries.

Incidentally, four Mumbaibased Muslim youths have escaped the country to participate in the global jihad.

“Indian Muslims will live for India, they will die for India they will not want anything bad for India,” Modi said in a rare interview with the CNN which will be aired on Sunday.

Modi, who has so far not given an interview to the media since becoming the prime minister, emphasised that “If anyone thinks Indian Muslims will dance to their tune, they are delusional,” when his response was sought on an al-Qaeda video threatening to take revenge over the alleged suppression of Muslims in the country.

The international media house also wanted to know from the prime minister, who will be travelling to the US next week, the reason for hardly anyone or very few of the 170 million Muslims in the country joining the al-Qaeda.

Modi was initially reluctant to answer this query saying that he was not an authority on religious and psychological analysis but he eventually argued that it was a fight between “humanity and inhumanity” and not an issue about one community or country.

“But the question is whether or not humanity should be defended in the world. Whether or not believers in humanity should unite. This is a crisis against humanity, not a crisis against one country or one race. So we have to frame this as a fight between humanity and inhumanity, nothing else,” he said.

BJP spokesperson and senior journalist M J Akbar said: “This is a powerful affirmation of his conviction on Muslims’ patriotism and it will send a strong international message that whatever Muslims do abroad, Indian Muslims are not up for it.”
