A few links of interest this week:
- I found this post really enjoyable. I have never been to middle east, but would love to go one day. Abu Dhabi looks like a beautiful place, particularly the Grand Mosque. Speaking of Islamic things, there are several papers just posted on SSRN, including: Islamic Roots of Feminism in Egypt and Morocco; The Islamic Veil and its discontents: How do they undermine gender equality; and The Belltowers of the Future: Mosque Financing and the French Laicite’.
- Bo Jackson is biking Bama for a great cause. While I know that this is no typically in the range of topics we discuss here, I think its such a good cause that it should be posted. Being in towns that suffer from sudden disasters is hard. I am glad that Alabama’s favorite son is trying to raise awareness. I am also glad that Alabama’s favorite son is an Auburn grad.
