Slice the onion and sausage, and fry in a giant frying pan or wok with oil. Add butter, the garlic and risotto rice and fry until grains become glassy. Then add a bit of stock at a time and stir until it has been absorbed. Add a bit more and continue the process until the rice is soft. This should take 20-30mins, and you need to stir constantly. Chuck in the red pepper, peas and seafood. If you have any turmeric - or anything to turn it yellow - add for colouring. Stir for 2 more minutes until the red pepper is soft and the seafood hot through. Then squeeze in half a lemon and add salt and pepper to taste.

Career in Ship Design

Image
To equip yourself for a career in design you must continually strive to collect data on weights, building costs, & operating costs. You must also continually develop qualitative methods & quantitative values for estimating all of those factors. Make sure your data bank is ready for action whenever you are suddenly called upon to make a withdrawal.

After learning what measure of merit the owner finds most convincing, you must try to pin him down on certain necessary details. Included here may be such things as tax rate (including zakat where applicable), depreciation plan, other tax considerations, interest rate, freight rates, charter rates, etc. If the owner considers some of these figures confidential, then you must treat them parametrically - i.e., try to predict the outcome over a bracketing range of values. He should at least give you the brackets.

Where cargo or passengers are limited in availability, optimal ship size is not easily found. You will be forced into the organ…

Project Politics

Image
How to Manage Project PoliticsWhat happens when your Project Sponsor wants a slightly different outcome for the project than your Customer, Management Team and other Stakeholders want? The answer is that each party tries to influence the project to get what they want-and this is known as "Project Politics".The result is that the team are constantly pushed in different directions, trying to keep everyone happy, but not really doing what they were originally tasked to do which was to deliver a single outcome for the project.In this scenario, the project team becomes stressed, confused, de-motivated and inefficient. So it's your job as a Project Manager to ensure this doesn't happen. Here's how to prevent it.Step 1: Create a Project Board
The most critical but challenging step is to get everyone to agree to the same project scope and objectives. The easiest way to do this is to form a Project Board and include your Sponsor, Customer and other people that may influenc…

Islam is a comprehensive model of life

Image
Sayyid Maududi challenged all such misconceptions on a rational basis. As a result of his life-long intellectual and scholastic struggle, it was at last accepted that Islam is a comprehensive model of life, which guides us not only in the affairs of our individual and collective lives but also our international lives.

His writing also helped millions of Muslims in regaining their confidence over Islam and in eliminating their sense of inferiority. He wrote an unparalleled critique of socialism, and the modern western thought. Unveiling their waywardness, he interpreted the western thought as modern ignorance. (Even in 1950, Sayyid Maududi had prophesied that one day both Communism and Liberalism would not be able to get a haven even in Moscow, Paris, New York and London.) His prophesy about Communism has proved itself in its literal sense and now the world awaits the fulfillment of his second prophesy, the downfall of Liberalism.

Deliver your Projects FasterHere are 5 tips for delivering projects faster...Tip 1: Find Shortcuts in your Plan
Project Managers usually spend 80% of their time executing and 20% planning. The reason is that the Execution phase is where the excitement is, so they roll their sleeves up and get started executing as quickly as possible.But if you spend extra time in the Planning phase, then you can usually identify shortcuts which enable you to produce the same project outcome in less time.So when you think your project plan is complete, take extra time to re-look at your plan from the point of view of delivering it faster. By doing this, you'll find that you can schedule things to be done in a way that takes less time, with less effort.Tip 2: Automate Manual Tasks
You need to automate your manual daily tasks to help you do things faster. Here are some of the manual tasks that many Project Managers do each week that could be automated using project software:Summarizing data for your We…

Peraturan dan adab

Image
Islam mengajar manusia sama ada perkara yang diikhtiar atau tidak jika seseorang itu tahu, ia akan jadi bekalan hidup di akhirat. Tidur setelah didahului rasa mengantuk kurniaan Tuhan, akan menjadikan tubuh rehat dan cergas segar semula. Di akhirat ada habuan bagi manusia itu. Justeru Islam mengajar peraturan dan adab tidur, supaya tidur menjadi suatu ibadah yang berfaedah kepada manusia di dunia dan akhirat. Peraturan dan adab yang pertama, ialah bersihkan mulut dengan bersugi (gosok gigi) dan bersuci serta berwuduk. Islam bukan saja suruh berwuduk ketika hendak menunaikan solat atau membaca al-Quran, bahkan Islam anjurkan berwuduk itu mengajar manusia agar tidur dalam keadaan beribadat kepada Allah SWT. Seseorang yang berwuduk andainya meninggal dunia semasa tidur, maka matinya dalam keadaan suci bersih. Tiada yang boleh beri jaminan bahawa selepas tidur dia akan bernafas semula untuk meneruskan hidupnya. Oleh itu apabila seseorang hendak tidur dia hendaklah bersiap, kerana dia se…

سورة الجمعة Sura #62 Madina
1
Whatever is in the heavens and on earth, doth declare the Praises and Glory of Allah,- the Sovereign, the Holy One, the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
2
It is He Who has sent amongst the Unlettered an apostle from among themselves, to rehearse to them His Signs, to sanctify them, and to instruct them in Scripture and Wisdom,- although they had been, before, in manifest error;-
3
As well as (to confer all these benefits upon) others of them, who have not already joined them: And He is exalted in Might, Wise.

Such is the Bounty of Allah, which He bestows on whom He will: and Allah is the Lord of the highest bounty.

The similitude of those who were charged with the (obligations of the) Mosaic Law, but who subsequently failed in those (obligations), is that of a donkey which carries huge tomes (but understands them not). Evil is the similitude of people who falsify the Signs of Allah. and Allah guides n…

How to do a Feasibility StudyA Feasibility Study needs to be completed as early in the Project Life Cycle as possible. The best time to complete it is when you have identified a range of different alternative solutions and you need to know which solution is the most feasible to implement. Here's how to do it...Step 1: Research the Business Drivers
In most cases, your project is being driven by a problem in the business. These problems are called “business drivers” and you need to have a clear understanding of what they are, as part of your Feasibility Study. For instance, the business driver might be that an IT system is outdated and is causing customer complaints, or that two businesses need to merge because of an acquisition. Regardless of the business driver, you need to get to the bottom of it so you fully understand the reasons why the project has been kicked off.Find out why the business driver is important to the business, and why it's critical that the project delivers …

Keikhlasan kepada Allah SWT

Image
Semua anggota tubuh badan adalah kurniaan Tuhan, yang sepatutnya digunakan untuk taat dan berbakti kepada-Nya, bukan sebaliknya. Firman-Nya lagi yang bermaksud: "Dan barang siapa yang mengerjakan kejahatan dan menganiaya dirinya, kemudian dia mohon ampun kepada Allah, nescaya dia mendapati Allah Maha PengAmpun lagi Maha Penyayang." (Surah An-Nisa ayat 110) Pada ayat tersebut menjelaskan bahawa orang yang telah melakukan kejahatan atau menzalimi diri, kemudian ingat kepada Allah SWT dan beristighfar akan mendapati bahawa Allah SWT itu satu Zat yang sangat suka mengampunkan dosa, serta amat Kasihan Belas kepada manusia. Mukmin yang 'ashi (derhaka) hendaklah berkeyakinan bahawa dosanya akan diampun dan dilindung daripada pandangan orang ramai, dengan syarat mereka menyesali dan taubat bermula daripada hati yang telah insaf. Sepenuh hati berazam tidak melakukan dosa lagi, lantas lisannya menyebut 'Astaghfirullah' atau 'Lailaha illa anta inni kuntu minaz zolimin&…
