Why would anybody want to write another book about Albert Einstein? Why would anybody want to read it? These are two separate questions, but both of them have satisfactory answers. In spite of the large number of books already written about Einstein, there is still room for one more.

Assume a notable story on a notable day in history--the lunar landing, say--was fabricated. Now assume that 400,000 to 2 million such days were concocted. You begin to get a sense of the scope of New Chronology, the "empirico-statistical" theory that much of human history is a fiction assembled to serve the powerful.

"There are many studies that attest to the power of story. For example, Deborah Small at the University of Pennsylvania created two different versions of a marketing pamphlet designed to raise money for a charity. One version was laden with statistical data about the problems facing children in Africa, and the other featured a story about Rokia, an impoverished girl in the area. Participants were given just one of the two pamphlets to evaluate and they were also given five one-dollar bills to donate as much or as little as they would like to a charity that promised to help those children in Africa. Those who had received the statistics-laden pamphlet donated an average of $1.43, but those who had received the story pamphlet donated nearly double, an average of $2.38."

Story
Tagline
International Affairs Researcher, Humanitarian Aid Provider & ICT Enthusiast
Introduction

International Affairs researcher, Development Aid provider, Blogger, Tech Enthusiast, Project Hope Palestine CEO-cofounder & Firefly International interim Director

I am currently a PhD candidate in the Institute for Arab and Islamic Studies at the University of Exeter, where I conduct research into the design and implementation of foreign aid projects for Palestinians. Previously I was the cofounder and Executive Director of the West Bank-based youth charity Project Hope. Currently I am the interim Director initiating a 4 year growth plan at Firefly International that is aimed at allowing the British-based charity to better support overseas youth charity partners.

I have published a number of scholarly and current affairs articles. 

During my time as a PhD researcher, I became involved in a number of research and technology related projects, such as: establishing an online network for researchers in my field of enquiry, helping set up and run an online PhD student run blog on International Affairs "ThinkIR" and participated in a year long Cascade digital research project. The digital research and online projects led a colleague and myself to run a blog project about using digital tools in post-secondary research "Raqmi."

Thus, over the years I have become particularly adept at utilising computer and online technology in order to conduct research and carry out humanitarian or development aid. 

I and a friend rented two bicycles from here. The bikes were in ok condition, good enough to get around Berlin. However, we were given a faulty bike lock which we could not open. After several hours of biking, we found out the lock would not open when we're supposed to use our reservation to visit the German Bundestag. We lost that reservation and could not rebook it on our trip; and had to cancel the rest of our day's plans to bike a long distance in order to return the bikes. Even though the lock clearly would not open and the company ruined our day in Berlin - you cannot do anything if you can't luck your bike - they would not refund our money. We had to argue intensely for 15 minutes to get half our money back. We were quite upset and for this reason, I have to rate this service very poorly.
