    The sacred month of Ramadan 2017 is almost upon us, which always bring a great opportunity for Muslims to seek maximum blessings. Ramadan is the ninth lunar month and its first day starts with the appearance of the moon at the end of Sha'ban (eighth month of the Islamic calendar).

    With 2.7 million Muslim, majority residing in London, England, Islam is third largest religion in United Kingdom. The fasting duration in UK is used to be longer in comparison to most parts of the world. As you can see in Ramadan 2017 calendar that, the fasting duration on the first day of Ramadan in London, UK will be 18 hours and 34 minutes. And the longest fast will be observe on 21st of Ramadan which is 18 hours and 55 minutes long. It will start at 2:26 am and will end at 9:21 pm as per prayer times calculated using Muslim World League method.

    When is the First and Last Day of Ramadan 2017 in UK

    For Hijri dates, Muslims of UK are divided into two communities, the one who follows Saudi Arabia and, the other group of people follow Ramadan dates announced by the Coordination of Major Islamic Centres and Mosques of London. On the evening of 26th May 2017, Ramadan moon can be seen easily by use of optical aid or even by naked eye in Saudi Arabia. But in UK, it is impossible to see Ramadan crescent on 26th May evening by naked eye but possible by telescope if weather remains clear. So, the first day of Ramadan 2017 in UK will begin from 27th May, Saturday but, not necessarily across the Kingdom.

    For Hijri dates, Muslims of UK are divided into two communities, the one who follows Saudi Arabia and, the other group of people follow Ramadan dates announced by the Coordination of Major Islamic Centres and Mosques of London. On the evening of 16th May 2018, Ramadan moon can be seen easily by use of optical aid or even by naked eye in Saudi Arabia. But in UK, it is not much easy to see Ramadan crescent by naked eye but can be seen easily by use of optical aid on 16th May evening if weather remains clear. So, the first day of Ramadan 2018 in UK will begin from 17th May, Thursday across the United Kingdom.

    Similarly, Ramadan 2017 can be 29 or 30 days long. As the last day of fasting month in UK will be on 25th June, Sunday, for the people that follow dates announced by local sighting. But for communities who follow KSA is yet to be confirmed, as it can end on Saturday, 24th June.

    Wisdom Of Fasting

    Allah’s wisdom for the month of Ramadan can be sought and scrutinised if we Muslim reflect upon the teachings and principles of Ramadan. Allah has designed the rulings of Ramadan in a perfect manner that is adequate for the Muslims to resurrect their spiritual morals. In Quran Allah has mentioned the virtues and reasons of Ramadan at several places and quoting one example of Surah Baqarah in which Allah has enjoined Muslim towards fasting in the following manner:

    "O you who believe! Observing As-Sawm (the fasting) is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become Al-Muttaqoon (the pious)."

    By these following verses, it is crystal clear that Allah wants the piety of the believer rather than his hunger or thirst. Fasting ultimately helps the Muslims to avoid the forbidden and it helps to fulfil the commands of Islam altogether throughout the rest of the other months. Fasting is a tool that automatically makes us thankful for all the pleasures and luxuries we enjoy without showing any gratitude to the giver (Allah). It is incumbent upon us to realise that when all the great pleasure of our life are kept away from us like eating, drinking etc we come to value those things even more while abstaining from them. This act triggers us to be grateful to Allah. It must be noted that these things inculcate in us without our conscious mind getting to know it. Such is the mercy of Allah.

    Moreover, fasting is the great way to shun all illegal desires that might pop up in the head of young Generation. Prophet Muhammad (s) had said that:

    "O young men! Whoever among you can afford to get married, let him do so, for it is more effective in lowering the gaze and protecting one's chastity. Whoever cannot do that, let him fast, for it will be a shield for him.”

    Hence fasting is a cure to the disease of illegal desires, this is because in comparison to the hunger and thirst the intensity of those desires subsides and they lessen as the Muslim continues to fast.

    Keeping Up with the Times: Why Obsolete Software Could Make Your Company Vulnerable

    The demand for cloud computing has been going up over the years, and it looks like it won’t be going down anytime soon. A report released by Forrester Research estimates that the public cloud market will reach nearly $200 billion by 2020, a huge lap from the now modest amount of close to $60 billion back in 2013. With so much possible revenue on the line, it’s no wonder why so many businesses are switching to secured cloud-based systems. However, with that increase in popularity comes a spike in unscrupulous online activities, usually targeted at large and profitable institutions spread across a number of different countries.

    Obsolete Software Could Make Your Company Vulnerable

    Have You Been Keeping Your Security Technologies Upgraded? According to an article by Michael Pinna and Stuart Nussbaum on AccountingWEB, a surprisingly large number of enterprises in the United States are using outdated technology in order to protect their sensitive data. If you use old or nearly obsolete equipment or apps, chances are that hackers have already figured out more than a million ways to crack these systems, so it will be as if you did not put any security barriers into place at all. When in doubt, you may want to get in touch with an IT security professional consultant to help you understand how the newer systems work more effectively than what you used to know.

    Old Tech Isn’t So Bad… Is It?

    Let’s look at a specific and relatively recent example. Companies with computers that still run Windows XP may be vulnerable to several viruses and malware because Microsoft has stopped providing updates and support to this operating system since April 2014. While it was a sad day for many who loved that particular OS, it’s no surprise as it was originally released over a decade and a half ago. In the world of tech, that’s a very long period of time, considering that modern gadgets already become outdated within a year of release.

    Why You Should Upgrade

    Before you think that this is just a company’s way to trying to force you to upgrade, the reason they want you to use a new OS is because they can provide a myriad of more effective security features using the latest software. This is something an old OS cannot do because, being a product of its time, its technical limitations prevent it from adapting to newer threats.

    The Bottom Line: It Always Pays to Be Up to Date

    Given the above information about the significance of using the latest systems, you should be better equipped to confront the very real possibility of your servers getting accessed by unauthorized figures. As with most things, learning how to prevent mishaps from happening is so much better than dealing with the consequences and trying to find a cure afterwards. Keep yourself updated on the latest trends in securing important data on the cloud and you should be able to keep your defenses strong against any cyber criminals trying to take a crack at your company’s confidential data.

    What’s Slowing Down Your Business’s Wireless Broadband Connection?

    If there is one roadblock that is guaranteed to cause some degree of chaos in the office, it’s a slow or nearly non-existent Internet connection. If your business is experiencing some download or upload problems and causing your employees a lot of grief, here’s a quick guide on figuring out what the problem might be and how to solve it.

    Before anything else, you need to check if your connection is actually running as fast as advertised by your Internet provider. In order to do that, you can run a test on sites such as SpeedTest.net, which will show you your upload and download rates. If you notice that your results are slower than you thought, consider the following:

    Testing Your Expected Internet Speed

    1. How far are you from the nearest exchange?

    The farther away your business location is from your provider’s servers, the slower your connection will be because the data has to travel a farther distance. To ensure faster speeds, make sure to go with an Internet provider that has a server close to your location.


    2. What is the average speed you can expect to get?

    Often, the speed that providers advertise is the maximum potential, but what you actually get on a regular basis is much lower than that. To confirm, call your provider and ask for how fast you can realistically expect your connection to be.

    Troubleshooting Slow Internet Connections

    1. Are there are particularly large file transfers currently going on?

    It should be a given, but if you are currently downloading or uploading something that is made up of thousands of megabytes, most of your connection will be hogged by that process. We are not just referring to individual file transfers, either. Some of the programs running in the background of your employees’ PCs might be sneakily using it up due to automatic downloads.

    2. Are there any other devices currently connected to the Internet?

    Yes, everybody’s always online, but having every single gadget hooked up to the network comes at a cost. If you have several phones, tablets, or even laptops using the same Internet connection, they will all end up using too much of the data allocated by your monthly plan. That leaves less room for your more important equipment to use. Encourage everybody at your department to turn off the wireless connections on their phones if they are not for work-related purposes to free up your router and hopefully speed things up.

    We've outlined just a few of the useful questions you can ask when it comes to troubleshooting your slow connection, but there are definitely more ways you can speed up your company’s Internet. To circumvent most of these issues, make sure you've done your homework and signed up for only the best wireless broadband solution in your area. Your clients deserve only the highest quality services and products, so don’t settle for any second-rate networks, since quick access to information is crucial to the success of any business.

    3 Important Recent Inventions of the Printing Industry

    Today, we live within a technological milieu that is very different from even just a few years back. The world is very connected and is highly dependent on digital data. We send emails, do virtual bank transactions, submit forms online, and read e-books by the thousands.

    Despite such advances however, the printed world is still alive and kicking. The hard copy is here to stay, simply because it remains very useful in a lot of different applications.

    Paper has traditionally been our substrate of choice, but now, we print on a variety of other surfaces on objects that perform a multitude of functions. Quite recently, we even began printing actual objects, seemingly out of thin air. Thanks to our new additive manufacturing technologies, we are now able to utilize model data to print three-dimensional objects that can be used for a range of purposes.

    3D Printing

    3D printing is actually the first item on our list of important recent inventions that revolutionized the printing industry. Read on to find out what the others are.

    3D Printing

    As mentioned, 3D printing gained wide acceptancein recent years, particularly during the first decade of the 21st century. Its origins, however, date back to the 1980s, when the first prototype 3D printing devices were originally developed.

    At that time, the three-dimensional objects were typically printed using modified inkjet printer heads, whichaccomplished the process bydepositing successive layers of polymer even asthe material is quickly cured with ultraviolet light. Today, 3D printing can also be done using other techniques like extrusion deposition and sintering.

    3D printing offers a lot of benefits for people who want to manufacture or engineer new products. The process makes it possible for prototypes to be created with ease, for customization to be accomplished effortlessly, and for rapid manufacturing to be carried out without the usual exorbitant costs.

    Because 3D printing makes it possible to synthesize specialized objects with unique geometries, it has also become instrumental in scientific research and in the development of new, useful technologies.

    Remanufactured and compatible printer cartridges

    Before there were alternatives to original equipment manufacturer (OEM) printer ink and toner products, consumers had no choice but to purchase outrageously costly original cartridges. Ink products were so expensive that they often cost even more than luxury fragrances per unit of weight.

    If you’re old enough, you may remember ink and toner refill kits. They were difficult to use effectively and were very messy. Thus, the introduction of remanufactured and compatible printer cartridges greatly democratized the industry. Finally, consumers were given the choice whether to purchase the more expensive OEM variants or to gain value by choosing alternative products instead.

    Remanufactured printer cartridges are high-quality recycled cartridges. These recycled cartridges go through a lot more than the simple refilling kits. The remanufacturing process involves the use of advanced cleaning, refilling, and sealing techniques to give the used cartridges a new lease on life.

    On the other hand, compatible printer cartridges are newly made cartridges. Like the remanufacturing process, the production of compatible printer cartridges is also held to high standards, so the resulting products typically match or even outperform OEM products when it comes to quality.

    Both these types of alternative printer cartridge products are more affordable options for consumers, but in terms of environment-friendliness, remanufactured cartridges are favored by advocates of sustainable use of resources.

    According to the non-profit organization Earth Share, remanufacturing uses up to 80% less energy than manufacturing new cartridges, and every old cartridge that is recycled saves about a gallon of petroleum.

    Biodegradable printer ink

    Biodegradable printer ink was first introduced during the oil crisis of the 1970s when nations in the Middle East imposed an oil embargo against the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, the Netherlands, and Japan following these countries’ involvement in Israel’s war against Egypt and Syria.

    Oil was important to the ink manufacturing industry since the production of conventional ink products required the use of petroleum-based oil. Anticipating the negative impact that the embargo would have on the ink manufacturing industry, researchers developed ink products that made use of non-edible vegetable oil instead.

    Because of their vegetable oil content, biodegradable ink products don’t produce as much chemical emissions as traditional inks. Thus, they are better for people’s health and for the environment. Additionally, the use of biodegradable ink is also beneficial for recycling endeavors since this type of ink is much easier to separate from paper and other materials compared to conventional variants.

    The printing industry is continuously evolving. As the needs of people and businesses change, we can expect more printing innovations in the future that will forever change how we use and experience this technology, which has been in existence since the dawn of civilization.
