PAC JF-17 Thunder: جے ایف-١٧ گرج

Great news that Pakistan's multi-role light combat fighter jet is now being preferred over an equivalent Russian fighter aircraft in the global defense products market; it is a major breakthrough and the next customers in line are Saudi Arabia and Egypt (sales to them are expected soon due to conflicts in Yemen and Libya respectively), and possibly Bulgaria (given the lower price of the JF-17 as compared to other Western options):

"Taiwanese media is reporting that Myanmar will purchase the JF-17 Thunder fighter jet from Pakistan, the product of a strategic collaboration between China's Chengdu Aircraft Industry Group and the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC). Myanmar has pondered the purchase for a while, previously opting for the MIG-29 over the JF-17 in 2009; this change of heart is likely a result of the difficulties involved with keeping MiG-29s in service."

On the other hand, Turkey has sought Pakistan's assistance to develop its indigenous missile programme as it seeks to counter regional threats. The recent visit to Islamabad (and Rawalpindi) by the Turkish Prime Minister should be seen in this light. Turkey has already approved a $3.4 billion air defense systems purchase from China earlier this week.

Reuters: Tag Heuer is teaming up with Intel to fight back against the Apple Watch
 
+Tag Heuer plans to unveil a smartwatch today among a wave of partnerships expected at the world's biggest watch fair this week as luxury watchmakers fight back against Apple watch.

The Swiss watch brand, the biggest at French luxury group +LVMH, will announce it is teaming up with chip maker +Intel to create a digital version of one of its best-selling model, industry sources have said.

Tag Heuer is planning to launch next autumn a smartwatch version of its Carrera watch that will offer many of the same functions as the Apple watch such as distance walked, geolocation and altitude.

The major difference is that the watch will be a digital replica of the original Tag Heuer black Carrera, known for its technical and sporty look, and will look like the original.

"People will have the impression that they are wearing a normal watch," Tag Heuer Chief Executive +Jean-Claude Biver told +Reuters in an interview at +Baselworld, the industry's biggest fair where retailers place their orders for the year.

Biver agreed with Swatch Group Chief Executive +Nick Hayek who said the smartwatch "would increase the cake" for the industry as a whole.

"Apple will get young people used to wearing a watch and later maybe they will want to buy themselves a real watch," Biver said.

The jury is still out on whether Apple's smartwatch will be a major success once it hits the stores next month but Swiss watch makers have been busy trying to come up with attractive alternatives ahead of time. +http://goo.gl/lNc931
 

Many analysts predict Apple's watch, to be priced from $349 to $17,000, will dent sales at several Swatch Group brands, such as Tissot and Omega. JPMorgan estimates 33% of Swatch Group's profit is exposed to Apple's watch threat.

Swatch Group has told analysts it will integrate near field communication (NFC) into several of its watch brands, first Swatch, then Tissot and Omega. +http://goo.gl/AA3xO3 ( +BBC News )

It said its competitive advantage would be longer battery life than Apple's watch as its smartwatches, having more limited capabilities, would require less energy.

Apple watches must be recharged every 18 hours, meaning they typically cannot be worn overnight.

+Tissot, which has long been making watches with touch screens, on Wednesday unveiled its new connected T-Touch fitted watch with a solar battery. +http://goo.gl/aKJN5Y

Solar Eclipse in the UK on Friday 20th March 2015.

SO HOW DO YOU PRAYER THE ECLIPSE PRAYER?

An Eclipse prayer is made up of two rakaats of prayer (two units of prayer). Basically there are two rukus (bowings) and two recitations from Qur’an in each unit of prayer (rakaat) – in normal prayer, there is only one bowing per unit of prayer (see my post on How to Pray).

So you stand up for prayer as normal
Recite Qur’an as you normally would
Go into Rukoo (bow) and prolong the rukoo with duas
Stand up and recite Qur’an again
Go into Rukoo (bow) again and prolong the rukoo with duas but not as long as the first rukoo
Stand up and then go into sujood (prostration) and prolong the sujood with duas
Sit up straight
Go into sujood again and prolong it (but not as long as the first sujood)
You repeat the above steps for the second rakaat (second unit of prayer)
