Department of History, American University in Cairo, Cairo, Egypt This article examines the nature of religious terrorism, principally with reference to al-Qaeda. It argues that a distinction must be made between the ultimate aims and the immediate objectives of ‘religious’ terrorists, and that while the ultimate aims will be religiously formulated, the immediate objectives will often be found to be almost purely political. This distinction is illustrated with reference to such premodern religious terrorists as the Assassins and Zealots. Immediate objectives, are for many purposes more important than ultimate aims. Although the immediate objectives of al-Qaeda on 9=11 cannot be established with certainty, it is highly probably that the intention was to provoke a response from the US that would have a radicalizing impact on al-Qaeda’s constituency. Reference to public opinion in the Middle East, especially in Egypt, shows that this is indeed what has happened. Such an impact is a purely political objective, familiar to historians of terrorism from at least the time of Errico Malatesta and the ‘propaganda of the deed’ in the 1870s. While no direct link between Malatesta and al-Qaeda exists, al-Qaeda was certainly in contact with contemporary theories that Malatesta would have recognized, and seems to have applied them. Even though its immediate objectives are political rather than religious, al-Qaeda is a distinctively Islamic group. Not only is its chosen constituency a confessional one, but al-Qaeda also uses—and when necessary adapts—well-known Islamic religious concepts to motivate its operatives, ranging from conceptions of duty to conceptions of ascetic devotion. This is demonstrated with reference to the ‘Last Night’ document of 9=11. The conclusion is that terrorism which can be understood in political terms is susceptible to political remedies.

Over this decade, employment in jobs requiring education beyond a high school diploma will grow more rapidly than employment in jobs that do not; of the 30 fastest growing occupations, more than half require post-secondary education.

I live in Russia, and I can tell you that people are free to express their opinion here. Don't believe on propaganda against other countries, it's an informational war. Are people in the UK free to express their opinion about muslims and homosexuals not risking to be labelled as homophobs or bigots?

Los números del Plan nacional de numeración telefónica constan generalmente de nueve dígitos representados por la secuencia alfabética NXYABMCDU, siendo N la cifra que se marca en primer lugar. Esta cifra es indicativa del servicio al que se accede en cada llamada. Por ejemplo, los números cortos suelen comenzar por 0 y 1, los móviles por 6 y 7, etc. No obstante, la identificación de algunos servicios y los precios orientativos de las llamadas podría requerir el análisis de más cifras, normalmente las 3 ó 4 primeras (NXYA). El Plan nacional de numeración telefónica es un plan cerrado a 9 cifras, lo que significa que salvo excepciones los usuarios siempre deben marcar las 9 cifras del número completo, o número nacional, independientemente del lugar donde se encuentren y del destino de la llamada. Para realizar una llamada telefónica internacional desde España se ha de marcar el prefijo internacional 00 antes del indicativo del país con el que se quiera comunicar, seguido del número del abonado llamado. El prefijo internacional también se representa con el signo de la suma (+). Se pueden consultar los indicativos de país en la página web de la Unión Internacional de Telecomunicaciones (UIT) en http://www.itu.int/pub/T‐SP‐E.164D/es. Si nos encontramos en el extranjero y queremos realizar una llamada a España debemos marcar el prefijo internacional del país de origen (00 en los países de la Unión Europea) seguido del indicativo de país de España, que es el 34, y del número de 9 cifras del abonado residente en España.
El Plan nacional de numeración telefónica, aprobado mediante Real Decreto 2296/2004, de 10 de diciembre, es una adaptación al nuevo marco legal del plan de numeración que entró en vigor en España el 4 de abril de 1998. Se refiere exclusivamente a los números de teléfono y se define como un plan cerrado a 9 cifras, lo que significa que los usuarios llamantes siempre deben marcar las 9 cifras del número completo, independientemente del lugar donde se encuentren. Por ello, no son posibles las marcaciones locales abreviadas, como ocurría años atrás. El Plan adjudica los indicativos a las distintas provincias españolas y atribuye rangos de números a los servicios (por ejemplo, los servicios móviles disponen de los números que comienzan por la cifra 6, mientras que los indicativos provinciales comienzan por las cifras 9 y 8). Dado que una parte de los recursos públicos de numeración están sin atribuir ni adjudicar (aproximadamente el 50 %), el Plan se configura como un sistema flexible que permite la apertura de nuevos rangos por la Secretaría de Estado de Telecomunicaciones y para la Sociedad de la Información en función de las necesidades existentes en cada momento. Por su parte, la Comisión del Mercado de las Telecomunicaciones asigna los números del Plan a los operadores siguiendo el procedimiento establecido en el Capítulo V del Titulo IV del Reglamento sobre mercados de comunicaciones electrónicas, acceso a las redes y numeración, aprobado por Real Decreto 2296/2004, de 10 de diciembre.
KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) Keep it simple, keep it safe. The true purpose of a level 1 certification is to show the NAR and / or TRA that you know what you’re doing. A successful certification flight depends on proper knowledge, proper preparation, and a bit o’ luck. Proper knowledge depends upon you reading everything that you can find; you can learn a lot from reading Sport Rocketry and Extreme Rocketry magazines as well as taking advantage of all the info on the Internet. Also, a few books have been published recently that cover this subject. Rocket guys are almost invariably helpful; ask questions of the people who have tread this path before you. Proper preparation depends on you successfully applying your hard-won knowledge and using your rocketry common sense. The bit o’ luck is up to Ifni, but if you’re well prepared, you don’t need much luck. Rocket Selection Buy a kit. You may be tempted to scratchbuild something, but resist that temptation. No matter what your opinion of yourself, you probably don’t know enough yet to attempt a Cert flight on a scratchbuilt rocket. Plus, RSO’s tend to be nervous about Cert flights on scratchbuilts. There are many good kits available from companies such as LOC/Precision, Public Missiles, Aerotech, Rocketman, and many more. Bigger rockets are better. I strongly urge that you buy a 3 or 4 inch diameter rocket. (Resist the urge to use a very small rocket or a very large rocket.) Keep weight in mind; I like cert flights that go up about 1,500 feet. Any flight below 1,000 feet will be slightly dicey; anything much over 2,000 runs an increasing risk of losing the rocket. Look for a rocket with good stability characteristics. My advice is to avoid the short, stubby class of rockets (like the LOC Minie Magg) due to small stability margins. (They can fly fine - just wait until later to try them.)

The present document contains a draft set of provisions for the Rules of the Unified Patent Court (hereinafter "UPC" or "Court") and the Statute of the Court (hereinafter “Statute”). Basic principles of procedural law are already laid down in Part III of the Agreement on a UPC (hereinafter "Agreement"), for instance proportionality and fairness, case management, right to be heard, publicity, stages of the proceedings etc. The Agreement also contains generalprovisions on languages, parties, representation, means of evidence, experts, and defines the powers of the UPC to order provisional measures (in particular preliminary injunctions), to issue orders to preserve evidence (saisie-contrefaçon), corrective measures etc. However, in several places in the Agreement, references are made to the Rules which shall spell out procedural details. This is a tried and tested legal technique: only the basic principles have been included in the Agreement, many procedural details being left for secondary legal instruments. In accordance with Article 41(2) Agreement, the Rules of the UPC shall be adopted by the Administrative Committee, on the basis of broad consultations with all stakeholders and following an opinion of the European Commission on the compatibility of the Rules with Union law. The Contracting Member States, having signed the Agreement,have set up a Preparatory Committee in charge of preparing the practical arrangements for the early establishment and coming into operation of the Court. The Contracting Member States acknowledge the importance of appropriate Rules for the Court and of their uniform application, which are vital to guarantee that the decisions of the Court are of the highest quality and that proceedings are organised in the most efficient and cost effective manner. Rules A small Drafting Committee of expert judges and lawyers was appointed in 2012 to take this work forward. The eighth draft prepared by the Drafting Committee was the subject of wide technical consultation with professional and industry bodies. A list of respondents who commented on that draft is set out below.
