MacMachine Some edited footages I shot during a New York City trip for Human Rights Watch International Film Festival and the New York Asian Film Festival in June 2005. Nearly mugged wandering around. It's a little tribute to this lovely city and people but NOT to Bush and his administration. It got this wonderful creative aura energy that hard to explain. Anyway, this video here will tell on how I felt being in the "City That Never Sleeps". Edited with the background music of U2 from the album "All that you can't leave behind, New York - 2000 ".

israel hid the discovery of muslim prayer room in jerusalem

" Al-Aqsa Mosque near to Israel’s Wailing Wall "

I felt a little ironic that the more Israel digs in that area in search of its ancient history, the more Islamic history they will unearth. This is, by the way, the same Mugrabi Bridge that has recently been in controversial.

JERUSALEM, Israel, Feb. 19 (UPI) — Remains of a Muslim prayer room were unearthed near Israel’s Western Wall in 2004, but the discovery was kept secret until now, YNetNews reported.
The find was located under the dirt embankment adjacent to the Mugrabi Gate. The information was known to several Israeli officials, YNetNews said, but kept from the public until it was revealed in an article posted on the Israel Antiquities Authority’s Web site by archaeologist Yuval Baruch.
In an article entitled “The real story,” Baruch said the collapse of an embankment near the Mugrabi Bridge, unearthed a small room with a roofed alcove and a dome — a type of Muslim prayer alcove facing south. There has been speculation the space might be the remains of a prayer room that had once been part of a school for Muslim studies.
The remains apparently date back to the 11th century. The finding was kept secret out of concern that the Muslim community would demand the site be declared sacred, YNetNews said.

Recent protests over work currently being done near the Mugrabi Bridge are based on concerns that destruction of the embankment would damage Muslim sites the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

“ Better to be a Pirate than to join the Navy ”

Steve Jobs - Referring to the pirate flag that flew over Apple’s headquaters in 1983. I believe that quote was one of three keyphrases for a large Apple meeting/conference, and the Pirate flag was attached to the Macintosh building after that meeting. So the flag was actually a reaction to that.
