In addition to bringing innovation to his home country, Bayat founded the Bayat Foundation in 2005 in order to rebuild and restore Afghanistan through community development and outreach. With the help of his foundation, Afghanistan has seen improved living conditions, clean water sources, educational programs, career education and sustainability programs. In order to serve the country, the Bayat Foundation collaborates with a number of non-governmental organizations and outreach groups. Several organizations include Roots of Peace, the New Hudson Foundation, and the Sunshine Lady Foundations. Each of these organizations share the common idea that Afghanistan can prosper through the development of its people.

The Bayat Foundation provides the country with programming in the healthcare sector including maternal and infant care, health awareness and clean water as well as educational outreach programs for youth, adults seeking employment and women. Though women still struggle for equality in many parts of the world, the Bayat Foundation hopes to empower women by providing grants and education to encourage independence and success.

Through the ongoing dedication of Ehsan Bayat, who continues to serve on the board of the Foundation, many families have welcomed new opportunities and feelings of prosperity. Due to his passion for his country, Bayat was recognized as the Mahatma Gandhi Humanitarian in 2010. According to the Bayat Foundation, the award “represents resistance to tyranny and a philosophy based on total non-violence leading to civil rights and freedom. It represents the highest values of a progressive society.”

Prior to receiving that award, Bayat was no stranger to accolades. The Afghan-American Chamber of Commerce named him Businessman of the Year after proving his dedication to helping his country through the advancement of mobile technology. He was also presented with the Human Rights National Award by the Afghanistan Human Rights Association after his persistent efforts to make Afghanistan a better place for its citizens.

It is through the work of individuals like Ehsan Bayat that our world continues to develop and that individuals will find opportunity where they never thought possible.

4 Reasons To Vote Yes On Prop 39 In California

Prop 39 is a proposition that is designed to bring in a billion dollars and thousands of jobs to California. It aims to close the loophole that allows corporations to profit heavily on the struggles of the middle class. This prop is for individuals that want more job opportunities.

Major corporations are against the prop. Their opposition has prevented this prop from advancing and getting passed in the state. Voters now have the opportunity to turn that around and ensure that the prop is passed for the greater good of California.

4 Reasons To Vote Yes On Prop 39 In California4 Reasons To Vote Yes On Prop 39 In California (image from blogger.com)

Here is an appeal for Proposition 39 – Why You Should Vote Yes:

It Will Provide Alternative-Energy Projects

Half of every new dollar that comes from other states will be put towards projects that help improve alternative energy. These projects are greatly needed in California to help reduce the emissions produced by citizens of California. Schools and other public buildings will also be modified to be more energy efficient with these dollars. It’s a measure that can improve the lives and air quality for Californians across the state.

More Money In The Economy

The local economy in California is struggling, and more money for citizens isn’t a bad thing. Californians will see a boost in the economy if they vote yes on prop 39 this year. A economic boost will result in far more jobs and a better quality of life for Californians.

Money Towards Schools

The next five years will be a great advancement for education institutions throughout California if this measure passes. One billion is expected to be put into schools if Prop 39 is approved and the loophole is closed. Everyone wants better educational standards and opportunities for children, and this proposition can easily provide what the school systems of California need.

Everyone Else Is Doing It

Other states have voted yes on similar propositions to close loopholes that benefit corporations. This is a rapid change in the way the economy works, and it has the potential to change the world on a broader scale. Voting yes on this proposition will only improve the quality of life in California and make California a stronger state.

Proposition 39 will lead to projects that improve cleaner energy. This proposition has bipartisan support, but there are special-interest groups that do not want it to pass. Voters must get out there and vote yes on the prop in order for this to pass.

Typhoon ‘Gener’ Effects

Just recently, the country was badly affected by the typhoon “Gener“. There were also reported cases of deaths in Metro Manila and other negative impacts brought by Gener.

Flooding in Metro Manila brought by Typhoon “Gener”

And telling you guys, this is my very first time to experience stormy days in my entire life. Things like those what I used to just see in television are now for real like those swinging of leaves of trees, real flooded areas, no electricity and a lot more. Even the patio water fountains of our neighbors were full of rain water.

Should I say, this is really a strange thing for me —  almost but not all are my first time ever experiences.

Facebook Owner & CEO, Mark Zuckerberg Weds Priscilla Chan

It seems like the month of May is the best month to ring the bell since most of my friends are getting married on this month. In fact, though we are not friends, the Facebook owner and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend, Priscilla Chan.

 Facebook Owner & CEO, Mark Zuckerberg Weds Priscilla Chan

Mark and Priscilla were together for nine (9) years since they first met in Harvard. The couple’s wedding ceremony was held at the Zuckerberg’s place in California.

Talking more about wedding, I have several friends who also did and a few more to end their “being SINGLE” statuses in Facebook before the month will end. Do this things give me hints that May is the best month to get married?

Opps! I don’t have plans to get married the soonest yet. I want, as much as possible, to make that day the most memorable wedding day I could have. But since I and my Mark, not Zuckerberg, LOL, don’t have fix plans on those stuff, I am still living my “being SINGLE” status in its fullest before I’ll change to “Engaged” and then “Married” statuses in Facebook.

Sharing to you some of my wedding ideas; these include the extreme events, if possible, like paragliding or maybe, underwater wedding ceremony. Ain’t those really exciting to look forward to? But a close friend of mind disagreed. She said, for me to make my wedding the best ever, I should rather had it the solemnest as well. She also added that I should check wedding events like Mississippi weddings and the MS party planner as well for me to grasp wedding events and collage them in one.

But as what I’ve mentioned earlier, we don’t have fix plans yet. Everything about wedding, for the two of us, are yet dancing in our minds on how such big day to happen. Hopefully, as that day comes, we could surely celebrate that most unforgettable wedding day we could have.

Best wishes, by the way, to the newly wed couple, Facebook Owner & CEO, Mr. Mark Zuckerberg and Mrs. Priscilla Chan-Zuckerberg.
