JO Magazine Scandal!

Pheras first email
Hi there, I'm Pheras Hilal, a journalist/writer from Venture and JO magazines. Both magazines are Jordanian publications in English, Venture Magazine is a Business Intelligence Monthly, while JO is a social monthly. I'm in charge of developing two tech support sections in both magazines. I develop a section called "The Cutting Edge" in Venture Magazine, which features hi-tech gadgets and new innovations created by several Electronics giants. In JO, I'm in charge of a section called "Tech Support" which basically contains articles about the latest in technology. In our August issue, I'm doing a piece in JO about HDTVs, so I would very much appreciate it if you can provide me with high resolution images of some HDTVs and further information on these tvs and also prices. In Venture, I'm looking for hi tech gadgets and gizmos to review and write about, so I would appreciate if you can supply with a list of your products attached with high resolution images on a monthly basis. Please do find the time to meet my requests and get back to my e-mail as I require such information asap. Thank you so very much for your time and cooperation. Regards,

Pheras Hilal

You'd like for us to do your work for you?

Okay. Please provide us a monthly stipend of $25k a month in operating expenses and we'll just write your damn magazine. I'm sure as a journalist/writer you're flush with venture capital.

Or how about you replace those sections of your magazine with high-resolution screen shots of our website with giant, comedy-sized quotation marks around each image.

That would be pretty 'Cutting Edge.'

P.S. Also, I'll need a pony with a built-in HDTV.



Pheras again!

Save it E-Whitney. Tell that to your buddies, and I'm sure you'll have a great laugh for the day. God didn't spare me with time on my hands, episodes of Wayne's World and an internet connection so that I can grow up to be a geek techie as yourself. I have better things to write about in my life than to waste it all on stupid things plugged to my fucking USB port, hence I asked for your help. What a loser. And you keep on dreaming about getting half your annual income from me.

Now this isn't about Pheras; it's about JO and Venture magazines, I really would love to know how they are wrapping up the other sections ?
the only comment I can give today is " Ya shamatet abla taza fiya!"

Rules of war (in a nutshell)

https://youtu.be/HwpzzAefx9M Since the beginning, humans have resorted to violence as a way to settle disagreements. Yet through the ages, people from around the world have tried to limit the brutality of war. It was this humanitarian spirit that led to the First Geneva Convention of 1864, and to the birth of modern International Humanitarian Law. Setting the basic limits on how wars can be fought, these universal laws of war protect those not fighting, as well as those no longer able to. To do this, a distinction must always be made between who or what may be attacked, and who or what must be spared and protected.
