Hi Arash!

I just had this idea and thought that your app might be the perfect base for it: a prayer app "specially made for the dedication of the Temple in Chile".

It would be your prayer app, with "minor" modifications:
Spanish as the default language, (with the other ones still there for the odd non-Spanish visitors)
inter-religious prayers sections, (for all the non-bahá'í visitors)
picture of the Temple as a cover
links to the different NSAs of South America (for seekers to find contacts in different places)
The app would be publicized at the entrance of the temple, and be available for download from the Play Store / itunes.

BTW, i greatly appreciate your prayer app. Thank you for that wonderful service.

Let me know if you're interested!

#iran  where human rights suppression is not just practical: it's policy.
A high-ranking cleric and Khomeini-era member of the Supreme Judicial Council has told Fars News Agency that Baha’is are not entitled to citizenship rights. The statement was made only weeks after Mohammad Javad Larijani, Head of the Iranian Judiciary's Human Rights Council, denied the systematic denial of Baha’is right to higher education. "We never say that Baha'is have the right to education; Baha'is don't even have citizenship rights," Ayatol...

Well, this is an honest and bold statement by somebody with some authority. It will surely justify further persecutions, and make the oppresor look worse before the international community.

Disfruté tremendamente de esta semana de trabajo junto a Hans de Four, traduciendo, facilitando las reuniones en el Ministerio de Educación, y aquí va mi post al respecto:

"Though MOOCs and online technology have generated excitement about their potential to increase access to education, most existing research has focused on comparisons of student performance across online and in-person formats. We provide the first evidence on the impact of online education on the amount of education pursued. Georgia Tech's Online M.S. in Computer Science is the first model combining the inexpensive nature of MOOCs with a degree program from a highly-ranked institution, a price-quality pairing that has not been seen before. A regression discontinuity design around an admissions threshold shows that access to this low cost, high quality option substantially increases the amount of formal education pursued, with demand driven largely by mid-career Americans for whom in-person options are not appealing. Our estimates suggest that, by satisfying previously unmet demand for mid-career training, this single program will boost annual production of American computer science master’s degrees by eight percent."

Spectacular location right next to a volcano crater (unless it's cloudy, and then you don't get to see a thing). The food is good.

Very nice, expansive Park. Too new to have big trees, but perfect for long walks in the late afternoon with kids. A nice touch is having included solar powered cell phone chargers.

Very good service, nice rooms (even the "old ones" have been renewed, and are quite large). It's fairly well located inside the downtown area, without being on a too noisy part of town. The food in the restaurant is ok.

small mexican restaurant. Very tasty food, can be as hot as you want it to be. It can get crowded so going in early is preferable. Good service.
