p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }a:link { color: rgb(0, 0, 255); } The bodybuilding supplements manufactured these days are very safe to use and are prepared using the best and most harmless ingredients. They can be taken to make up for deficiency of proteins, calcium, and different vitamins. The bodybuilding supplements are available for different age groups for both men and women and the organisations marketing these supplements also mention the safe and prescribed dosage of these medicines. Some of these supplements can be given to children for better height and weight gain. When taken properly, the bodybuilding supplements can indeed show dramatic improvements in health.

I think the big appreciation should go to Al Jazeera Qatar for being the most active jounalist/broadcaster for events in Egypt.

Hopefully People Powers can topple Mubarak Regime as we know strongly supported by US and Israel.

Again Thank You Al Jazeera English.

Egypt, looking for a dream - from the TIMES OF INDIA

Narayani Ganesh

Widespread rebellion against Hosni Mubarak's government in Egypt has left more than a hundred dead and reportedly, protesters have desecrated priceless heritage exhibits housed in the Cairo Museum as an expression of their rage. "Brick by brick, wall by wall, we will see Mubarak fall," chant protestors. Why? Here's an explanation from a BBC correspondent: "People are disgruntled about everything - about politics, economics, their lives, and the state of the country. One could talk about the unemployment, and the poverty, and the corruption. People feel they are being treated with contempt by the government…. But the discontent is also wider than that. Egyptians will tell you that this country needs a dream, a vision. They had a dream under President Nasser, they had a dream under President Sadat, and they had a dream under the pharaohs. In the 30-year rule of President Mubarak, there has been no dream - it's been mundane, it's been about numbers and even on those numbers, many will say they haven't delivered on simple things like education, sanitation, and so forth. So people are really seeing a government and a country in decline."

Do nations need dreams? Perhaps yes, especially if the economic and social conditions of the people are not what they ought to be. Where there is poverty and discrimination, there is bound to be discontent and potential unrest and words of hope from a charismatic leader goes a long way in keeping the dreams of millions alive - no matter that the realisation of those dreams might mean a long wait, perhaps even skipping a generation. And so the dream baton is passed on, keeping the flame of hope alive.

Dreams are funny things. Bad dreams are called nightmares, and whether what is dreamt of is good or bad, interpreters of dreams are much sought after by some of us who dream in our sleep and which, some believe, might portend the future or provide insight into their psyche. However, when your life is directed by a 'dream' as in your vision of the future, it's a different ballgame altogether. Your dream of the future motivates and directs your life, holding out hope even in the midst of gloom, like the proverbial light at the end of a dark tunnel.

Freedom movements are made of dreams as are the lives of seekers driven by the need to find the ultimate truth. Scientists dream of eureka moments and students are urged to motivate themselves by envisioning a bright future. Corporations have dreams, too, and these are verbalised in their mission statements. Accustomed as we are to be led by our dreams, the lack of one can be quite devastating.

The charismatic Martin Luther King infused hope and confidence in his compatriots in America with his "I have a dream…" speech that he delivered from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington in 1963. He kindled hope in the hearts of thousands and gave them a reason to look forward to the future, for the future was paved with dreams of a society that was free of discrimination and slavery.

Why was it so difficult for Mubarak to hold out a dream, that too in an Arab country known for its liberal approach to Islam and which, by all accounts is a favoured tourist destination and with an inexhaustible source - spanning more than 3,000 years - of profound philosophical insight? The Egyptian people enjoy the goodwill of millions of people across the world. But Mubarak chose to trample the dreams of his people, giving them nothing in its stead.

I would spread the cloths under your feet: But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams. - W B Yeats

As Arabian communities ...these papers are nothing but to confirm what we were thinking.

and it is not a conspiracy theory as governments' media claim...

At least they show how mature and right in theories are the educated people in these poor arabic countries
