I am not the Ahmad Azizi poet!

If you've searched for "Ahmad Azizi" and landed to this webpage, you should be informed that this website (and my other websites) does not belong or have any relation with Ahmad Azizi poet.

This website belongs to a different identity, and by the time I'm receiving messages from people who have confused me with "Ahmad Azizi Poet", "Ahmad Azizi politician", "Dr. Ahmad Azizi" and some other Ahmad Azizis in the world.

Anyway, if you were not looking for any of the persons above, hopefully you're on the right place! That's me!

I just thought of sharing you with some of the best concepts that I really live with everyday.

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. --Walt Disney
The perceived complexity of a task will expand to the time allot to it. --Parkinson's Law

 There are Lots of ideas, rules, points, laws and favorite quotes that a person likes best, but a single one is enough to change one's vision of whole life. No need for too many, a few can be enough to start a journey or survive! The most complex things, the greatest achievements have always been based on a simple but clever idea or concept.

Be wishful,
Nov 2010, Ahmad,

  • Three dead in east Ukraine, Putin warns of 'abyss'
    Pro-Russian protester seats at barricades at the police headquarters in SlavianskBy Aleksandar Vasovic MARIUPOL, Ukraine (Reuters) - Separatists attacked a base of the Ukrainian national guard overnight and Kiev said three separatists were killed, the worst bloodshed yet in a 10-day pro-Russian uprising in east Ukraine, overshadowing crisis talks to resolve the conflict. Ukrainian, Russian and Western diplomats arrived for the emergency talks in Geneva, but there was little hope of any progress in resolving a crisis that has seen armed pro-Russian fighters seize whole swathes of Ukraine, while Moscow masses tens of thousands of troops on the frontier. President Vladimir Putin, who overturned decades of post-Cold War diplomacy last month by declaring Russia's right to intervene in neighboring countries and annexing Ukraine's Crimea region, accused the authorities in Kiev of plunging the country into an "abyss".

  • Putin fields question from U.S. fugitive Snowden
    By Steve Gutterman and Alessandra Prentice MOSCOW (Reuters) - Edward Snowden, the fugitive former U.S. spy agency contractor who leaked details of U.S. intelligence eavesdropping, asked Russian President Vladimir Putin a question on Thursday during a televised call-in show. The exchange was the first known direct contact between Putin and Snowden since Russia granted the American asylum last summer after he disclosed widespread monitoring of telephone and internet data by the United States and fled the country. Snowden, who has been given refuge in Russia, was not in the studio where Putin was speaking. Snowden, wearing a jacket and open-collar shirt and speaking before a dark background, asked Putin: "Does Russia intercept, store or analyze, in any way, the communications of millions of individuals?" He also asked whether Putin believes improving the effectiveness of investigations justifies "placing societies .. under surveillance".
