nal from miami says:
"Awesome. Breathtaking. Stunning. Impressive. Majestic. Captivating.
Dazzling. Thrilling. Sensational...
...these and more adjectives could be used to describe Lia's photographs and still you could not quite describe the caliber of her work. Look at her photos - each and every single one of them a piece of art."
Aging Hollow-Eyed Hippy from Haight/Ashbury says:
"She knows the meaning of "Art for Service and Blessedness - not Art for Arts Sake"."

"Lia ...
la freccia che Apollo scaglio contro Achille ...
la forza delle saette di Giove...
la delicatezza della brezza marina...
il canto delle sirene ...
la luce delle stelle...
l'innocenza dei bambini ...
ancestrale come l'alba ed il tramonto...
tutto e ancor piu di questo, e per me la sua divina fotografia ."
Andre L. Santana says:
"Para alguem de feicoes e palavras tao simples, ela detem uma das visoes mais humanamentes ricas que ja vi.

Poucos retratos e imagens de bons fotografos tocam.

O trabalho dela nos atravessa."
dave jensen photography Edinburgh says:
"Not much more can be said.... I find the photostream inspiring for someone looking to go freelance.

Varied subjects, technique and a natural ability to capture life and structure in one exposure.

Very talented photographer

sergiolira says:
"ja escrevi e apaguei outros. agora acho que vai...essa moca ai, e' um caso serio. o negocio e' o seguinte: ela tem uma sensibilidade aguda, um jeito de estar na luz certa, no povo certo, e, benza deus, tem uma genetica de espantar....na minha terra tem uma lia. ela se chama lia de itamaraca, a lia da ciranda de roda...
essa aqui - que sempre ta na carreira mandando beijo pra quem e' de beijo - e' a da ciranda de luz.
a da ciranda do palco, da vida, do barco de rosa."
juntos (on and off) says:
"Ah, nao e facil escrever sobre a Lia e as sua "bellissime" fotos ...
eu senti uma imediata atracao pela forma magica, elegante e sensual do seu trabalho que tem uma "ligacao" ... as "pessoas" ..
ela mostra a Vida com toda a sua beleza e paixao sem deixar os pequenos "detalhes" ... quando quero "pensar" our rever um momento "meu" e nas suas fotos unicas de grande Artista que vou.

A unique and for me (my italian eye) an unique kind of set on Flickr, world class here.

Um olhar especial, unico ... um sabor de "deja vu" .. ela "apanha" o que muitos de nos pensamos.

Sinto previlegiada de ter encontra uma amiga e uma artista.. e uma mulher cheia de VIDA .. e raro ..

As coisas boas da Flickr."
rita vita finzi says:
"sometimes it happens.
you just click on an icon, and an incredible world of images is opening to you: creative, poetic, delicate and/but meaningfull ...
when you see the first one, you can't stop going on, because lia is able everytime to astonish you with her endless, "easy" creativeness that comes like a river ... !
Through her very personal sensibility we can see with different eyes a different world of people (her women are breathtaking!), theatre, portraits, street life, precious details, art ...
and she is lovely: kind, careful, gentle, she always know the way to make you feel "special".
I'm happy, and honoured to be in touch with so a special person!"

I shoot pain as I see it on the viewfinder of my soul..and though I am a Shia I shoot all religiosity culture and all this because Hussain is synonymous with Humanity..I have copied the article below to give you a short summary of Shiasm..

The Route of Imam Hussain from Makkah to Karbala
Research and preparation by Syed M.R. Shabbar

After leaving Makkah there were 14 places mentioned in history books where Imam either stayed Or met people or gave sermons.

Saffah: Here Imam met Farazzdaq the poet whom Imam asked about conditions in Kufa. He said, ‘He said, ‘People’s hearts were with you but their swords were against you.’ Imam replied, ‘Allah does what he wishes. Ileave it to him who proposes the just cause.
Dhat-el-Irq: Here Imam’s cousin Abdullah Ibne Jafar brought his two sons Auwn and Mohammed to their mother Hazrat Zainab and to help the imam. He tried to persuade the Imam to return to Madina but Imam replied, ‘my destiny is in the hands of Allah.’
Batn-er-Rumma: Imam sent a letter to Kufa with Qais bin Mashir, met Abdullah bin Mutee who came from Iraq. When he heard of Imam’s intention, he tried to stop him. He said Kufans were not faithful and could not be trusted. But Imam continued his journey.
Zurud: Imam met Zohair Ibne Qain. Zohair was not among the followers of Ahlulbait. But when Imam told him of the purpose of his journey Zohair gave all his possesions to his wife, told her to go home and said that he wished to be martyred with the Imam.
Zabala: Imam learnt from two tribesmen coming from Kufa of the death of Hazrat Muslim. Imam said, ‘Innan Lillahe wa Inna Elaihe Rajeoon. Indallah-Nahtasib Anfusana.’ ‘We are for Allah and we shall return to Him who surely accouts for our sacrifices. Asadi Tribesmen tried to dissuade the Imam from his journey but he persisted. Here Imam told his companions the news of the death of Muslim and Hani and that people in Kufa were not prepared to be their helpers. Imam said, ‘Those who want to depart leave now.’ Hoards of various tribesmen who had followed the Imam in the hope of collecting the booty realised their false hopes and scattered to their own homes. Only 50 odd people remained.
Batn-e-Aqeeq: Imam met a man from the Tribe of Akrama who told him that Kufa was no more a friendly town and was now surrounded by Yazid’s army. No one could get in or out of the town. But the Imam carried on.
Sorat: Imam stayed the night here and in the morning ordered his companions to take as much water as they can.
Sharaf: While the Imam was passing from this place, one of his companions shouted that he could see the approach of an army. Imam asked for a safe place, preferably a mountain behind them. A guide took them to the nearest mountain.
Zuhasm: It was here that Imam met Hurr’s army of 1000 men. They wre thirsty so Imam ordered his men to give them water. Imam himself helped several thirsty soldiers to drink. Even animals were given water to drink. Zohr prayers were led by the Imam and all followed him including Hurr’s soldiers. Here Imam told hurr about many letters from Kufa. He said, ‘O People of Kufa, you sent me your delegations and wrote me letters that you had no Imam and that I should come to unite you and lead you in the way of Allah. You wrote that we Ahlulbait are more qualified to govern your affairs than those who claim things to which they have no right and act unjustly and wrongly. But if you have changed your mind, have become ignorant of our Rights and have forgotten your promises, I shall turn back. But he was denied to turn back by Hurr’s army and was lead to by-pass Kufa.
Baiza: Imam reached Baiza the next day and delivered one of his most famous sermons. ‘O People, the Prophet has said that if a man sees a tyrannical ruler transgressing against Allah and the Prophet and oppressing people but does nothing by word or action to change the situation then it will be just for Allah to place him where he deservingly belongs. Do you not see to what low level the affairs have come down…? Do you not observe that truth has not adhered to and falsehood has no limit? And as for me, I look upon death as but a means of attaining martyrdom and I consider life among transgressors as nothing but an agony and an affliction.’
Uzaibul Hajanat: Here Imam stayed away from the army of Hurr and met Trimmah bin Adi. After having learnt about the Kufan abandonment of his envoy it was clear that he had no hope of support or even survival in Kufa. Nevertheless he refused an offer of safety, if not success extended to him. Trimmah pleaded to him to accept the offer of 20,000 trained men of his tribe to help him if he wanted to go to Kufa or he could retire to the mountains and safety. Imam replied to Ibne Adi, ‘Allah bless you and your people. I cannot go from my word. Things are destined. It is clear from this reply that he was fully aware of the dangers he would face and that he ha

indie fashion for men - Ready-Made Democracy:




Ready-Made Democracy: A History of Men's Dress in the American Republic, 1760-1860


Ready-Made Democracy: A History of Men's Dress in the American Republic, 1760-1860



Ready-Made Democracy explores the history of men's dress in America to consider how capitalism and democracy emerged at the center of American life during the century between the Revolution and the Civil War. Michael Zakim demonstrates how clothing initially attained a significant place in the American political imagination on the eve of Independence. At a time when household production was a popular expression of civic virtue, homespun clothing was widely regarded as a reflection of America's most cherished republican values: simplicity, industriousness, frugality, and independence.

By the early nineteenth century, homespun began to disappear from the American material landscape. Exhortations of industry and modesty, however, remained a common fixture of public life. In fact, they found expression in the form of the business suit. Here, Zakim traces the evolution of homespun clothing into its ostensible opposite—the woolen coats, vests, and pantaloons that were "ready-made" for sale and wear across the country. In doing so, he demonstrates how traditional notions of work and property actually helped give birth to the modern industrial order. For Zakim, the history of men's dress in America mirrored this transformation of the nation's social and material landscape: profit-seeking in newly expanded markets, organizing a waged labor system in the city, shopping at "single-prices," and standardizing a business persona.

In illuminating the critical links between politics, economics, and fashion in antebellum America, Ready-Made Democracy will prove essential to anyone interested in the history of the United States and in the creation of modern culture in general.

Indie Rocker {Forget the 00's}




Indie Rocker {Forget the 00's}





Indie rock is defined sometimes by being independently produced, non-commercial and non-mainstream music. The general definition revolves around a Beatles like tune. In other words, sophisticated melodies and intelligent song writing! The fashion sense is in short, Metrosexual for a rockstar. These guys might have comfortable sense of fashion and easy going tunes but their music does nothing to help end the rock'n'roll masquerade started by Emo. Yeah they might got Plain White T's, Vampire Weekend, Metro Station, Iron and Wine and more but... This is a new generation, time for something fresh and exciting! Not some new and interesting tunes you could tap playing guitar hero. Indie rockers revive the old Beatles feel but still, they devolve masculinity to make men into pansies.
Hopefully this scene loses shelf life shortly into the next decade!











Floral Wool Sweater




Floral Wool Sweater





I made this one of a kind sweater by reconstructing this out of a vintage, over-sized cardigan sweater made for men

This Lovely, pull-over style sweater features a cross-over V neckline. I removed the original sleeves and made them more fitted. Sleeves have long ribbed cuffs. To give this sweater a more indie look (see photo 2 & 3 for reference), I re-attached the sleeves by placing the stitches on the outside of the shoulder seam. I surrounded the right, front-neckline with a series of handcrafted flowers. Each flower has a black beaded center. I removed the original cuffed hem & re-applied it to the center of this top to give it a baby-doll style. I attached it with zig-zag stitching on the outside. The buttons on the bottom half are functional-Very unique & pretty sweater! Great for layering too :-)

This article discusses what the Qur'an, hadith and Islamic scholars say about the 72 Virgins, and their physical, sexual and personality attributes.




This article discusses what the Qur'an, hadith and Islamic scholars say about the 72 Virgins, and their physical, sexual and personality attributes.





Introduction
In Islam, the concept of 72 virgins (houri) refers to an aspect of paradise. In the Sunan al-Tirmidhi, one of the six major Hadith collections,[1] it states:

It was mentioned by Daraj Ibn Abi Hatim, that Abu al-Haytham 'Adullah Ibn Wahb narrated from Abu Sa'id al-Khudhri, who heard the Prophet Muhammad PBUH saying, 'The smallest reward for the people of Heaven is an abode where there are eighty thousand servants and seventy-two houri, over which stands a dome decorated with pearls, aquamarine and ruby, as wide as the distance from al-Jabiyyah to San'a.[2][3]

This concept is also quoted by Ibn Kathir, in his Qur'anic Commentary of Qur'an 55:72 in the Tafsir ibn Kathir.

Orthodox Muslim theologians such as al Ghazali (died 1111 CE) and Al-Ash'ari (died 935 CE) have "admitted sensual pleasures into paradise".

The sensual pleasures are graphically elaborated by Qur'anic commentator and polymath, Al-Suyuti (died 1505). He wrote:

Each time we sleep with a Houri we find her virgin. Besides, the penis of the Elected never softens. The erection is eternal; the sensation that you feel each time you make love is utterly delicious and out of this world and were you to experience it in this world you would faint. Each chosen one [i.e. Muslim] will marry seventy [sic] houris, besides the women he married on earth, and all will have appetizing vaginas.[4]

The Qur'an mentions that Muslim men will be rewarded with virgins:

Then We have made them virgins

Qur'an 56:36
The Qur'an also mentions attributes of these virgins in various other verses.

Descriptions
There are several descriptions related to houri that are found in various Islamic references. Some include:


Physical Attributes:
Wide and beautiful/lovely eyes [5][6][7]
Like pearls [8]
Hairless except the eye brows and the head [9]
Beautiful [10]
White [11]
60 cubits [27.5 meters] tall [12][13][14]
7 cubits [3.2 meters] in width [14]
Transparent to the marrow of their bones [15][10]
Eternally young [9]
Companions of equal age [16][17]

Sexual Attributes:
Untouched / with hymen unbroken by sexual intercourse [18][19]
Virgins [20]
Voluptuous/full-breasted [16]
With large, round breasts which are not inclined to hang [15]
Appetizing vaginas [4]
Personality Attributes
Chaste females [5]
Restraining their glances [5][18]
Modest gaze [21]
Other Attributes
Splendid [22]
Pure [10]
Non-menstruating / non-urinating/ non-defecating and childfree [15][14]

Round/Swollen Breasts

Relating to the mention of virgins in the Qur'an, several translators like Hilali-Khan,[23] Arthur John Arberry, Abdul Daryabadi, Umm Muhammad, Edward Henry Palmer, Ahmed Ali, John Medows Rodwell, Ali Unal, George Sale, Muhammad Sarwar, and Tahir-ul-Qadri have interpreted Qur'an 78:33 to refer to "full grown", "swelling" or "pears-shaped" breasts.[24][25]

In his tafsir, Ibn Kathir wrote that the verse describes the physical attributes of the virgins. He construed the verse as:

This means round breasts. They meant by this that the breasts of these girls will be fully rounded and not sagging, because they will be virgins, equal in age.[26]

Shaykh Gibril Haddad comments on the erotic nature of this verse, saying some men may need ghusl (ablution required after sexual discharge) just for hearing the verse:

Qur'an does mention that for the inhabitants of Paradise - male and female - {There wait on them immortal youths} (56:17), {There serve them youths of everlasting youth, whom, when you see them, you would take for scattered pearls} (76:19). If this does not make a believing woman happy then, as Imam al-Shafi`i said to the one who is not moved by erotic poetry, "You have no feelings." As for the believing men, as one of the Awliya said, some of them will need ghusl just for hearing the verse {Same-age young-bosomed girls} (78:33). As for us hard-hearted analphabets we may read it and read it without effect.[27]

Martyrs of Jihad Will Be Rewarded
The Qur'an mentions that whose who fight in the way of Allah and get killed will be given a great reward:

Let those (believers) Who sell the life of this world for the hereafter fight in the cause of Allah and whoso fights in the cause of Allah, - and is slain or gets victory, We shall bestow on him a great reward.

Qur'an 4:74
This verse and others like it motivate terrorists and suicide bombers.

Some Muslims use the 72 Virgins concept to meet certain goals, e.g. as a way to entice other Muslims into carrying out heinous activities that may endanger their lives. It is most often used to entice Muslims into carrying out "martyrdom operations" as suicide bombers who will be rewarded with 72 virgins in paradise for their sacrifice. In one event, British Muslim teenage boys were told to train with Kalashnikov rifles and promised 72 virgins in paradise if they died as religious martyrs.[28]

THE LIBERAL RESPONSE WAS AS IRRATIONAL AS THE SHOOTER ----OF COURSE




THE LIBERAL RESPONSE WAS AS IRRATIONAL AS THE SHOOTER ----OF COURSE





By Robert Stacy McCain on 1.12.11 @ 6:09AM

The deranged man had been steadily going downhill. His bizarre anti-social behavior and angry outbursts had caused him to be suspended from college classes. He spiraled downward into a vortex of madness and nursed a weird political grievance until finally he went on a murderous rampage with a 9-mm semi-automatic pistol, killing six people and wounding more than a dozen others.

But nobody blamed Sarah Palin or the Tea Party for this bloody crime, because it was December 1993, and the deranged gunman was Colin Ferguson. And his killing spree didn't happen in Arizona, but on New York's Long Island Railroad, where he opened fire in a train full of rush-hour commuters.

The remarkable parallels between Ferguson's mass murder and Saturday's shootings in Tucson include not only the choice of weapons and the number of victims killed, but also the fact that in both cases, liberals downplayed the idiosyncratic motives of the gunmen and immediately seized upon both crimes to advance their political agenda.

Liberals predictably used Ferguson's murders to promote gun-control legislation. Just days before the Long Island Railroad massacre, President Clinton had signed into law the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, requiring background checks on firearm purchasers. Of course, Ferguson had already bought his 9-mm Ruger pistol during a visit to California, where state law required a 15-day waiting period. And despite his increasingly paranoid behavior, there was evidently nothing in Ferguson's record that would have prevented him from buying a gun. Several months later, Congress passed and Clinton signed the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, which prohibited the manufacture or import of certain semi-automatic weapons -- wrongly described as "assault weapons" -- as "high capacity" ammunition magazines. It has often been wrongly asserted that the so-called "assault weapons ban" outlawed these weapons and magazines, but it did not. Existing weapons and magazines of the prohibited type, already owned by many thousands of Americans, remained perfectly legal; it simply became illegal to manufacture such items in the U.S. or import them from overseas. Collectors who stocked up on the banned weapons and magazines before the Clinton-era law went into effect were able to reap handsome profits in the re-sale market during the 10 years before the law expired in 2004.

In the aftermath of the Tucson shooting -- where accused killer Jared Lee Loughner used a 30-round magazine in his 9-mm Glock pistol -- liberal pundits and reporters recycled the mistaken claim that the 1994 law had "banned" high-capacity magazines. (Blogger Bob Owens has endeavored to correct this misinformation, but has not been overwhelmed by phone calls from network TV producers who evidently prefer to rely on "experts" who get the facts all wrong.) Democrat Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, whose husband was killed in Ferguson's rampage, has been making the media rounds urging a new federal law to limit ammunition magazines to 10 rounds. But it's more likely the new GOP majority in the House will re-introduce the Volstead Act rather than to anger the millions of Second Amendment-loving Americans who delivered the overwhelming Republican mandate in November.

Even most Democrats, having recognized the political liability of advocating gun-control laws, are unlikely to support new restrictions. Perhaps this is merely a matter of electoral expediency, or perhaps Democrats have come to share the American majority's opinion that guns don't kill people, oppressed "victims of society" kill people.

Colin Ferguson certainly believed himself to be an oppressed victim. Having immigrated to New York from Jamaica in 1982 at age 24, Ferguson was unable to find a job that suited his taste and spent much of the next decade unemployed. He filed a workman's compensation claim against one company that hired him, enrolled in community college and began to exhibit an increasingly virulent hatred of white people. During one college lecture he reportedly shouted, "Kill the white people!" Unlike Al Sharpton, however, Ferguson's vicious race-mongering didn't lead to a Democratic presidential campaign and frequent appearances as a "civil rights" commentator on cable news networks. Instead, it led him to isolation and madness. (Neighbors complained they could hear Ferguson in his room at night yelling about killing white people, but no one seems to have thought to call the police; perhaps they thought Ferguson was practicing for a career as a rapper.) After Ferguson killed six people -- five whites and an Asian -- and wounded 19, he was at first represented by radical lawyers William Kunstler and Ron Koby. They wanted to defend their client on the basis of the innovative "black rage" theory that America's endemic racism was more to blame than t
