Discussions Discussion Internet’s Role in Popular Uprising
Rafi Chandio, Nov. 21, 2011

Egyptian Blogger Uses Nudity to Protest: CAIRO — Aliaa Magda Elmahdy apparently thought she was striking a blow for free expression in Egypt when she posted nude photographs of herself on a blog. Instead Ms. Elmahdy set off a wave of outrage, stoking conservative Islamist sentiments that many Islamist liberals fear will undermine their prospects in the country’s parliamentary election.

Soon after the post went live, apparently admiring allies sent out Twitter messages in support, inaugurating the nationwide debate. “A feminist #Jan25 revolutionary posted her nude photo on the internet to express her freedom. I’m totally taken back by her bravery!!” one ally, Ahmad Awadalla, a human rights activist, said on Twitter.

Einztein.com Helps You Get Educated for FREE! [Freeismylife.com]

Education is the key to a better life, but even simple online non-accredited classes can cost a fortune. And most of us are just looking for the knowledge and not a degree.  But did you know there is an easy way to find FREE online courses offered by universities?
Einztein.com is a searchable catalog of curated courses offered by providers as diverse as Stanford University and The British Museum. To find a course, enter a subject of interest in the search box and click “search” – or browse the selection of subjects. You can also filter your search results by course provider, subject and media type.You can browse the course descriptions, check out which courses received a good rating, and link out for a closer look.
If you find a course that you like, click on it and you will be taken to the course on the university’s website. I tried out the website by searching for an Intro to Java Course. I ended up on the website for SC San Diego which has a FREE online 10 week Into to Java Podcast that teaches Java to those with no prior Java experience.  The course has a perfect 5 out of 5 rating on Einztein. Pretty cool…
