Google celebrating the great Mark Twain’s birthday

I have always loved Mark Twain and his imagination, I`m actually now making my students read his wonderful novel ‘The Adventures of Tom Sawyer’.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910) better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He is most noted for his novels, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer , and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn , the latter often called “the Great American Novel.” (wikipedia)

I love this one the best, the colors take you years and years back.  Keep it up Google!

A message from me

I know I haven’t been writing lately, and even if I am, it is just announcements about interesting things that are going around. I’ve been very preoccupied lately with so many interesting experiences and subjects to write about, but what I lack is enough peaceful time to just sit and think. Thanks everyone for their nice comments and messages. It means everything to me when I get your feedback. I hope I will be on track soon! Thank you for being patient with me.

The Palestinian Cultural Exhibition – Coverage

I posted about the Palestinian Cultural Exhibition earlier hoping many of you who can make it to come. The exhibition was held by the Palestinian Cultural Center in Bayt Lothan in Salmiya. The Palestinian cultural center was founded here in Kuwait in 1965 to support the Palestinian women and to preserve the Palestinian heritage as a mean of maintaining the Palestinian cultural Identity.

Unfortunately, I was not allowed to take pictures of those artifacts. However, I will be sharing other interesting pictures with you.

Google celebrating Louis Jacues Mande Daguerre’s Birthday

Google are celebrating today the birthday of Louis Jacues Mande Daguerre who was a French artist and physicist, recognized for his invention of the daguerreotype process of photography.

“The purportedly first picture of a living person. The image shows a busy street, but due to exposure time of more than ten minutes, the traffic was moving too much to appear. The exceptions are the two people at the bottom left, one who stood still getting his boots polished by the other long enough to show. Look closely and you will also see another man sitting on a bench to the right reading a newspaper. Also in the upper left hand side you can also see another man standing under the awning of the 3rd building from the left. What looks to be a woman standing under the street lantern at 10 o’clock from the man getting his shoes shined and another one in the big white building,1st row 3rd window down. Notice the child in the top floor window of the white building in front. Note that the image is a mirror image.” Wikipedia
