Paul Martin, Liberal Leadership Candidate of Canada has made his own blog. I was reading his blog right now. After Howard Dean made his site and his own blog some politicians are realizing the meaning of blogs. Next are the Canadian politician Paul Martin started his just a few weeks ago. Read why he blogs! it's interesting to see he blogs and he likes it, for a politician like him this is a big leap in my opinion.

Paul Martin: To be honest, until a few weeks ago, I didn't even know what the hell a blog was - I joked that I thought it was something that might climb out of a swamp.

My internet has gotten slow, Bloging light today.

Hoder:True evidence that blogspot still being filtered in Iran
If you'd like to see what exactly is heppening to Iranian weblogs after the recent filtering in Iran, take a look at the stats report of a popular Persian weblog which happenes to be a little sexual. As you can see in this diagram, the page views have suddenly dropped to about %50 after July 9th and 10th. Therefore the rumors are true about blogspot still being blocked in Iran by most of the ISPs. Please do something about this as much as you can. At least spread the sad news.

Iranians say no!

Iranian bloggers are saying no back to the Iranian government after cooperating with a lot of Iranian ISPs that provide internet in Iran. After they have blocked Political sites with Porn sites I agree with blocking porn in Iran but I don't agree with blocking blogger and Persianblog and also Political sites or any site that is involved in Political actions or even a groups point of view like women's site from Iran (Iranian Feminists). Now ISPs in Iran have blocked Free blogging providers such as Blogger and also Persianblog now Iranian bloggers are limited with these blockings around them and their Ideas to express freely, Iranian internet society have made a petition that you can support Iranian bloggers. There is few ways to help blogger get back to blogging one of them is stop buying their ISPs and buy the ones that do not block sites or by using proxy they can get rid of the blockings. for a good proxy site provided by Iranians is this one called Iranian bloggers against censorship.

Blocking: Optimistic scenario
Hoder: Optimistically speaking, I guess the recent blocking of all blogging tools in Iran (+ my own poor weblog!) in the days of July 9th, has been a matter of security. Almost any kind of communication with outside world were cut off: cell-phones, long-distance calling cards, VoIP phone lines, satelite TVs, Internet access, and finally weblogs. It is very likely that the reformist government has arranged all of it for the fear of riots in the city and a more than possible savage reaction to them by hardliner vigilante and revolutionary guards. Because hardliners are not practically capabale of doing all this.

So I'm hopeful that the input/output channels will be opened again by saturday and people can access blogosphere again. But anyways, please spread the word. It's very important.

Please write about this in your weblog too as hoder said.

I promise next time I will right a report on it. Here is what my brother said on T3 me and him went and watched it the first day it came out.

I saw this movie yesterday and I liked it, but it was too unreal and sometimes it funny. Like here's one part that was so funny, the lady takes the gun and she shoots at Schwarzenegger and then he stops it with his teeth and says " Don't do that" I laughed at that part so much. This other funny part was when Schwarzenegger gets hit by a firefighter car and one side of his glasses were all torn and the firefighters had a silent with they're mouths opened in surprise and then Schwarzenegger says "Il drive" and he throws the firefighters out of the car and he drives, that was also so funny for me.

Ehsan forgot about that part were there was near the end wheen Arnold is killing the other robot and he goes you have been terminated.

Who should I blame?

Should I blame anyone? Shah, Khomeini, People, U.S.A (CIA.) , United kingdom. The funny thing is all of these that I just said have been involved in 1979 Revolution (Iran), if you say No this was an people uprising I think you might be right but who was behind it was it Khomeini or was it Shah, so who actually convinced people to go to streets and say Death to U.S.A. Death to Shah!
All we have to do now is to wait and see, what's next? 3 more days until the big event 9th of July is coming up and the only one is who afraid of it is those Mullahs who have been eating peoples money and dreams and feeding it to their greed. Ah enough already ,all they do is has to do something with Islam or Quran I mean anything even the most simple things.

Lombezzi from studioaperto a newspaper in itally emailed me a few times last week.
Here is one of them:

our news and our website have just started a campain to trasform the 9 July in Italy in our "Iran day" in support of the Iranian students. You can see the text calling all the people in Italy to write on our peace's flags still hanging to our windows from the Gulf War : "FREE IRAN! "

This is their website
google translation

And here is about Iranian day in Italy translated from Italian:

9 fridays ' July 1999. To 4 and 30 of mattino the bands of picchiatori Muslims and units of the police a dead man and hundreds of the wounded assault the dormitories of the university of Tehran leaving to earth. Little hours after a corteo of protest of the students he comes attacked of new, under the impassible look of the police, from armed miliziani of the "Party of God" of sticks and chains. The repression that follows invests all the fields of the civil and cultural life of the Iran and ago to tramontare the last hopes of a reformist evolution of the regimen. Under the Kathami presidency that in the West comes considered a reformist comes stoned to death at least 30 women. Four years after, the same scene is being repeated but the revolt of the students today expresses the malaise of an entire country and just for this it could end in a bath of blood, crushed from pasdaran and the military services the Muslims. Our proposal is not lasciari single! To make of the 9 July a great day of international solidarity writing on the peace flags that still wave in all FREE Italy "IRAN!" Why the 9 July becomes our "Iran day" a day dedicated to the freedom of the Iran. A day lived with the students of Tehran.

For the original Italian text email me.

Happy Canada Day

Intresting facts:
Did you know that before 1982 Canada Day had been known as Dominion Day, First of July, Confederation Day, and July the First? Canada Day celebrates the events that occurred on July 1, 1867, when the British North America Act created the Canadian federal government. The BNA Act proclaimed "one Dominion under the name of Canada," therefore the original title of the holiday, "Dominion Day." Dominion Day was officially renamed "Canada Day" by an Act of Parliament on October 27, 1982. This change reflected the policy of successive governments to downplay Canada's colonial origins. Canada's national celebration is always observed on July 1, unless that date falls on a Sunday. In which case it is observed the following day. Via: Happy Canada Day
