The Sound of Harmony Band of Boston is performing in Karak, Jordan

The above band is supposedly to perform in Karak this evening. I read an Ad in Alghad newspaper yesterday evening. This activity is one of the very first activities of the Jordan Vestival. They specified the date but not the time.

I searched in google news… I searched in Jordanian Newspapers websites but never found an answer. The best I could find was in Alrai newspaper. It only confirmed to me that the event will be held today’s evening in Marj, Karak. But when?

Today’s morning, before 8 o’clcok, No Ad was hanged on the north gate of Mu’tah university. Where can I find the timing? Please…

I will call a friend of mine (Mazen Kh) to inquire;  he lives in Marj. maybe he saw an Ad on his way to university.

If it turned out that I have no exam tomorrow, I will make sure to attend this event held by this American band.

Googling the name of this band gave me no clear results. Either the name is wrong, or, maybe the band is not very famous. Will a famous and very prestigous band agree to perform in a small place like Karak?

Since I put the name of this band as the title of my post, will this post appear in google search engine when a person want to get information about this mysterious band? Will my post be one of the top 10 results?

Lets wait and see… In the mean time, dear reader, if you arrived to my blog through google after searching for “The Sound of Harmony Band!” Can you publish this interesting information in the “comment” section below… Thanks!

Rachel Cleary: “This word is so bad that I haven’t proably said it in my life!”

What kind of word that my English teacher couldn’t have ‘probably’ said in her life? I and the students in the English village class in Mu’tah university were amazed at how intense, emotional, and almost agressive our English teacher, Miss Rachel Cleary became. But what was said that bothere her?

A student started a questoin, with a modest English, saying, “Negro!” The teacher didn’t give herself nor us a time to understand what the question is about. She just answered him very quickly and strongly. I couldn’t imagine how a smily, jolly, and joking person can become furious as she was. Women!

“This is the worst word in English language!” She stated confidently. Wow! I didn’t know that such a word is that bad. She continued only not to let anyperson have the chance to think of the innocence of this word against the charges against it. To prove her point of view, she only asked a question. She is smart to have asked such a question. When you put yourself in other’s places, you can understand what they feel. When teacher rachel asked that question, I could understand what she thought about this word. She asked:

“What is the most horrible Arabic word?”

She gave us little time to think. Later in my house, it took me minutes to think of an answer. She then said only to deliver her idea effectively and strongly, “Negro is like this most horrible Arabic word!” Wow! How could she come with such a comparison? Again, “Women”!

The most horrible Arabic word in my opinion could be “Infidel”. I hate this word because it is a sterotype against those not following a certain religion. As Negro is sterotyping against a human beingjust because of the color of his skin, an infidel sterotype against a human beings for freely choosing his religion!

English Village in Mu’tah University Started on Sunday

I met 2 Amreican volunteers till now. The man, named Adam, is a unique person. He is the kind of of teacher you will remeber till the end of your life.

I was surprised to know that there were Iraqi Kurdish students studying in Mu’tah university. Four are part of the English village.

Today, Chris is gonnna give us his first lecture. Will he be as shy as he is in public buses? Will he be as confident and funny as Adam is? Will he be as courageous as Rachel was in front of the angry doctor who wanted to get us out of the classroom? Will he control the lesson strongly as both Adam and Rachel did?

A guy told me that Rachel is married to a Tarawneh man. Really? If so, I wonder what personality doles this person have that he was able to make an American women, of different culture and different standard, to fill in love with him?!

Who is to be blamed more on poverty, governments or individuals? My opinion was that it depends on what country that individual lives in. If he is a hardworking person but lives in a country where there are no jobs, and if there are jobs, they generate low salaries, then the blame is not his but on his country. Don’t you think that my opinion is correct?
