This is mesmerizing galvanizing and GREAT. Gotta see this and …

This talk postulates and tells why TED talks don’t change viewers behavior !

Talking on human behavior, Tom Asacker also reminds that human is simply not a machine.

Language translation movement in Saudi Arabia , a seminar

King Faisal Centre for Research and Islamic Studies

King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies

King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies (KFCRIS), a famous destination in the Kingdom for researchers in humanities, is organizing a seminar on language translation movement in Saudi Arabia by Dr. Fayiz ibn Ali AsShehri who is the dean of College of Language and Translation at King Saud University.

From the title of the seminar, it will focus on the Saudi translation observatory as a model.  Although the observatory has been recently established according to my information.

I will try to attend such noted event, and hopefully cover seminar proceedings and information here at the blog by posting notes and related media.
