Why Capitalism Needs Regulation | Discovering Secular Humanism

Why Capitalism Needs Regulation | Discovering Secular Humanism

Overtime kills


And the awful truth for most employees is that overtime kills you. According a research by British scientists which monitored more than 10,000 civil servants over a period of 25 years, overtime ruins the condition of the heart.

The findings are published today in The European Heart Journal. Apparently hard workers quite easily add another three to four hours to a full working day, increasing their probability of heart problems by 60 percent.

People who clock off on time do not have an increased risk of heart-related illnesses. So all those election promises no doubt made by the British Conservatives and many of the Dutch parties during election campaigns to get rid of civil servants could actually be good for their health...)

Ysuf al-Qaradawi: ''Oh Allah, take your enemies, the enemies of Islam. Oh Allah, take the Jews, the treacherous aggressors. Oh Allah, take this profligate, cunning, arrogant band of people. Oh Allah, they have spread much tyranny and corruption in the land. Pour Your wrath upon them, oh our God. Lie in wait for them. Oh Allah, You annihilated the people of Thamoud at the hand of a tyrant, and You annihilated the people of 'Aad with a fierce, icy gale, and You destroyed the Pharaoh and his soldiers — oh Allah, take this oppressive, tyrannical band of people. Oh Allah, take this oppressive, Jewish Zionist band of people. Oh Allah, do not spare a single one of them. Oh Allah, count their numbers, and kill them, down to the very last one''
