Difference in Ihram for Men and Women. Getting into the state of Ihram does not merely mean putting on the clothes; rather it includes getting your body and mind into the specified sacred state with an intention of performing Hajj or Umrah.

Difference in Ihram for Men and Women

A Muslim must enter into the state of ihram before he enters the boundary of Miqat. The Ihram of men is far different from the ihram of women. Ihram of men consists of a two pieced white or any other colour cloth that must not be stitched. One is wrapped around the waist and is tied with the help of a belt or pin. This sheet must be above the ankles. For women, there is no clear prescription. It is restricted for both men and women to wear perfume of any kind or used perfumed soaps while in state of ihram. It must be noted that you can change your ihram for cleaning purposes if you want to.

Walk through "Your Rainbow Panorama" in Denmark

The new project was opened on the 28th of May 2011 on the top of the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum in Århus, Denmark. Permanent circular vivid walkway of a 150 meters long, 3 meters wide by 3 meters high, gives a 360° colorful view of the city. Eliasson’s creation is 52 meters in diameter (approximate weight of 140 tons), mounted on the 12 columns which are resting on the steel construction on the roof level (around 100 tons). This artistic work stands over 50 meters above the street level and 3.5 meters above the renovated roof area, it is also available for recreational purposes with a spectacular city view, all interested can reach both roof terrace and panorama via stairs and elevators.

Instant Pot 7-in-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker

During this time it has been my go to kitchen gadget. Whether I want my vegetables cooked quickly using the electric pressure cooking functionality; or I want my meats cooked slowly using the crock pot functionality this device does it all. Its an electric cooking device with a stainless steel pot. In an apartment, space is always at a premium so having an appliance that can replace a few of my existing appliances is appreciated.

I do not find any compromise with the functionality of any options. The sound it makes to verify the lid is closed is a reassuring electronic beep and then a pressurization.

Anesthesia points to deeper level 'quantum channels' as origins of consciousness

Can that simple fact explain consciousness? In a special issue of Current Topics in Medicinal Chemistry scientists from Nova Southeastern University, the University of Alberta and the University of Arizona find evidence that anesthetics act to prevent consciousness in non-polar, oil-like ‘quantum channels’ deep inside proteins, deep inside brain neurons. Anesthetic gas molecules selectively prevent consciousness, sparing non-conscious brain activities. But where, and how? At the turn of the 20th century, Meyer and Overton found that potency of various anesthetic gases correlated precisely with their solubility and binding in a non-polar medium akin to olive oil, later shown to be largely pi electron resonance clouds of ‘aromatic’ amino acid rings within brain proteins.

The Spaces In-Between

Travel journalism is all about top-ten destinations and best-kept secrets. But my problem is that I savour the spaces between more than the destinations. I don’t understand why anyone would want to go where everyone else is going, and I like keeping secrets. I should have given up somewhere between Djenne and Bomako in Mali. The tyre exploded, we were overloaded, and the Burkinabé man in my lap jumped with fright. I wonder how many others enjoy these spaces – the remote gas stations, small-town stopovers, endless horizons and quiet nothings on empty roads. I recall people who materialise out of nowhere. One Christmas Eve, I was behind schedule because of a motorcycle puncture, and I arrived at the South Africa/Botswana border as it was closing.
