Dari Abu Hurairah ia berkata : Dahulu Rasulullah SAW setelah membaca surat pada shalat Shubuh beliau bertakbir (untuk ruku’) lalu mengangkat kepala beliau (dari ruku’) dengan membaca, “Sami’allaahu liman hamidah, rabbanaa wa lakal-hamdu”, kemudian beliau dalam keadaan berdiri berdo’a, ”Ya Allah, selamatkan-lah Al-Walid bin Al-Walid, Salamah bin Hisyam, ‘Ayyas bin Abu Rabi’ah dan orang-orang dlu’afaa’ dari kaum mu’minin. Ya Allah, keraskanlah siksaan-Mu kepada suku Mudlar dan timpakanlah kepada mereka siksaan seperti (paceklik panjang) tahun-tahun pada zaman Nabi Yusuf. Ya Allah, laknatlah suku Lihyan, Ri’il, Dzakwan dan ‘Ushayyah, mereka itu telah makshiyat kepada Allah dan Rasul-Nya !”.

Union honcho: National Grid storm ignore our advice

Head of unions representing thousands of workers utility front lines Storms Sandy said National Grid officials ignore their advice on how to improve the response time in the middle of another big storm - a claim denied by the company.

"It's almost like a tale of two utility companies," said Dan Hurley, president of Local 369 Utility Workers Union of America, with about 600 to 700 NSTAR 1,900 other employees under the National Grid. "NSTAR seem to heed our advice, and the National Grid, for the moment, they might have a better plan. We are trying to improve their answers and we hit the wall. '

In response, National Grid officials said that "the amount of input from our employees," and to actually apply the advice "of the union to decentralize the operations during major weather events."

"We appreciate the work of frontline employees as we work to restore power to all of our customers as quickly and safely as possible," said a statement from the National Grid.

At 05:30, more than 294,000 people without power in the state as Sandy approached mainland, according to the utility.

Utility giant has been criticized both last year, following the response to Tropical Storm Irene and the late October surprise snowstorm that killed thousands of people in the dark. Attorney General Martha Coakley proposed NSTAR fined $ 10 million and $ 16 million National Grid to effectively stop the emergency response team personnel fallen power lines and communicate with customers and people. The fines are pending before the Department of Public Utility.

Post-Irene, NSTAR said Hurley meets union leaders, who participated in the so-called "occasional committee meetings storm" trade input in making better response. He said union officials who proposed simplifies the process of sending workers to the affected areas, and more.

"Union leaders have given us information about the logistics Services personnel, such as when sense to change the schedule to better use our resources," said NSTAR spokeswoman Caroline Pretyman, citing the inclusion of the union " very useful "to respond to customers. "We also took their suggestions on where to build a new staging location so they pre-positioned to respond."

But Hurley said that even a recent Friday, a meeting with National Grid "does not really go anywhere."

"It seems that when a hurricane, there are too many cooks in the kitchen and be able to let workers go out and do what they do," says Hurley. "We tried to explain to the National Grid, but with different rules.

"It is a matter of pride to men and women," he added, referring to public service workers. "The men and women out there want to get power. Who better to develop a response plan or help plan the development of the respondent on the road? '

Keselowski stunned by the response Jjs

As Johnson No. mutilated. 48 Chevrolet limped back to pit road, the points leader in the Sprint Cup believed that the sun was still in the delivery of dozens of stars. But it was not. Precautions crashing last five laps and allow Hendrick Motorsports teams to make six trips to the pits for repairs. After plastic surgery to cover bonds - industrial sized pieces of duct tape - a five-time champion of 30 lines with 121 laps of the race. Keselowski thinks will see Terminator, sans Johnson said: "I will return." "I think they did a great job fixing the car what I think," said Keselowski. "They're coming." Certain benefits remain after the race, when Johnson stood behind Keselowski position #. 2 Dodge. And because Johnson led 44 laps early events, a point ahead of Keselowski accepted by finishing eighth in ninth place result in the Johnson evaporates. Keselowski has been running long enough seven-point lead for granted, especially when your team is in a race against tough opponents such as Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus. They have been together since Johnson's rookie season in 2002 and the number of displaced people can not compare the past 11 seasons. No other organization has won five consecutive Cups. And 395 starts, Johnson has amassed 58 wins, 164 top and 246 under five in the top 10. On Sunday, Johnson was fortunate that the damage to his car became a member of the "big" and credited his team to take together "cosmetic" .. Johnson, 37, said the race team "more mature" this year than in 2011, when he and Knaus were criticized each other. "That's what we want to be realistic about thinking and execution at the end of last year," said Johnson. "When things got a little work for us, we will communicate and work as we need. That all people, not just those who have the final say and how to fix cars, but all of us. "And (Sunday), actually runs because there is nothing going on and do everything possible to get the car on the track and get our best result." Johnson was disappointed that he personally made the mistake of driving and Keselowski took no intermediate tracks where featured Penske Racing this season. However, he is convinced that with four races in the Chase - begins this weekend at Martinsville, where he has won six and finished a career average of 5.8 - it will continue to close on Keselowski. "The best way to send (a message) is how you perform on the track. And (Sunday), we showed what our team is capable of doing, "said Johnson. "Beyond that, and the mistakes I made, everything else was pretty incredible. I'm proud of the team, and hope that others are watching. ' Compared to Johnson record in Martinsville, Keselowski knew him weak. While Keselowski posted his best race result (ninth) in April to track 0526 miles and completed all but two laps of competition, took only two turns in the starting five. But after a surprise attack by Johnson & Co. Sunday, Keselowski acknowledged that his fight to the finish. "I saw it coming all the way to Homestead," said Keselowski. "It was decided there. I like the time we have today and the position we do. It came down to the last race. It was pretty obvious after (Sunday). ' Here are 10 ideas to think with four races remaining in the Sprint Cup season: 1. Did Christmas come early. . . . . . Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell? Former NASCAR track, is also one of the most valuable - and have a loyal following Dale Earnhardt Jr.. Earnhardt is expected to test at Gresham Motorsports Park on Monday and follow up with the neurologist Dr. Jerry Petty on Tuesday to make sure that you have completed the prescribed path to recovery. If cleaning Petty Earnhardt NASCAR and put his stamp of approval Junior Nation, definitely something to celebrate this weekend. 2. NASCAR Trucks at The Big E? Track owner Tony Stewart said Friday he would be "happy if we get a NASCAR race in Eldorado" and admitted that it was NASCAR, to "look at all kinds of tracks. "What I did not mention two trucks Stewart tried last week to a half-mile oval in shape and clay, according to sources, the three times has resulted in one of the trucks, along with Austin Dillon. Dillon characterized the trial as "fun", but added shyly "You'll have to wait and see" how to make the truck. "It will be interesting to see how they are doing," said Dillon. "We still have much work to do, but I want the viewer to walk again." 3. So close. . . Kyle Busch almost got his first Nationwide Series victory when he drove his own team team Saturday at Kansas Speedway - until the gas was when the show went into overtime. Apparently tumultuous had three chances to pull the feat at the National Division of Kyle Busch Motorsports, Joe Gibbs Racing integrate. Sources tell us KBM truck only becomes operational in 2013. Busch and Monster Energy will continue with JGR. 4. Meeting run Stewart Haas Racing launched its main line crew for next season, but Ryan Newman will have a good start in 2013 with Matt Borland meet with former Penske Racing driver Martinsville. "I have a good relationship with him personally and professionally," said Newman. "I hope we can re-live some of the successes that won the pole and the race." In general, the pair won 12 races, 37 poles and qualified for the Chase two of three in the Sprint Cup during his tenure. In his first four seasons together, Newman was the worst point six. 5. Holidays are over Nobody is happier to see the crew chief Richard "Slugger" Labbe permit section NASCAR Paul Menard. Then the driver said, according to the third place - his first top-five at the time. Labbe not sit still during his suspension for illegal chassis. Heads of test crew almost weekly in Nashville Speedway. Clearly it was worth. Five days at Kansas Speedway is not allowed. 27 teams to hone in one convenient package for Menard, encourage participation in the national series race on Saturday proved invaluable. 6. Holding his own Martin Truex Jr. did not receive proper credit for the last week "wreckord" 14 warned of a second - matching a season-best finish in Kansas before applying a new layer. Although ranked 16 Truex avoid many drivers to send seven top fives this season, tying a career-best effort. Truex had mixed results in Martinsville, but getting two fifth place finish there in the spring. 7. Hoping to regain ground Denny Hamlin is the hottest driver at Martinsville Speedway in recent times. He has won three of the last six races, and a 6.4 average finish his second after Johnson. After a disappointing 13th place showing at Kansas Speedway, where Hamlin was involved in trafficking, which lost five points on Keselowski. "We are trying to recover at Martinsville," said Hamlin. "This is a good track for us." 8. Second Chance Do not expect to move weapons Phoenix Racing, to announce its driver lineup for the weekend. However, it should be clear Earnhardt Jr., Regan Smith No. bring. 51 Chevrolet. After Smith's fourth top-10 finish of the season on Sunday at No. subbing. 88 Hendrick Motorsports car. General manager Steve Barkdoll said Monday that the promises made before AJ Allmendinger Smith filled. Even Barkdoll, Allmendinger found time, in the absence of Smith, described the experience as pleasant. "The way AJ done in the past two weeks, he deserves a full time ride," Barkdoll said. 9. Letter Some national series owner please step forward and offer competitive Johanna long trip? Not only Danica Patrick Long outqualify Kansas Speedway, Chevrolet outraced No.. 7 before the right front tire exploded. Maybe not the greatest length attribute blame to the other competitors in the race is something that is not revealed as planned. 10. A class act Matt Kenseth became the second driver to win races in the Chase with a victory few in Kansas. Not due to mechanical failure, Kenseth in contention for a second Sprint Cup title. However, it is gratifying to see that the friendship between the head, the driver and team owner Sunday. Roush Fenway Racing Kenseth removing bitter, but it is clear that the friendship will remain intact.

After years of denial, Armstrong collapses approach

Lance Armstrong always give the same general response to those who claim that he was tricked and treated. He strongly denied. Then usually attack his accusers, often calling them all liars. It is a strategy that has worked for years - until two weeks ago, when Armstrong began backing into a corner and nearly paralyze any attempt to return, experts in branding and crisis management. After seven Tour de France title was stripped of his official Monday, Armstrong has more followers and no major sponsor. We also lose the right to compete in the main event of the competition except for unauthorized use of American sports. The two agencies that you agree to the evidence undisputed that Armstrong doped. However, Armstrong has never given land. In June, when the U.S. Doping Agency announced the case, Armstrong issued a statement: "I have not been sedated, and, like many of my accusers, I competed as an endurance athlete for 25 years without performance increase over 500 approved drug tests and never failed one. ' If only he managed various allegations, experts say it has received a lighter sentence and possibly an easier path to the public for forgiveness. "If a sports hero or a president, not the act of getting problems, is a lie about it later," says David Srere, Siegel Gale signs autograph expert. Marc Mukasey, a lawyer expert in crisis management, strategy questioned Armstrong. "There are so many ways to handle this situation than perfectly rejection and went on a mission against all accusers," he said. After years of siding Armstrong, but the International Cycling Union (UCI) on Monday decided to keep the sanctions against him. Shortly after the announcement of the UCI, the last major sponsor of Armstrong - Oakley sunglasses - said the breakdown of a relationship with him based on doping "evidence". Nike, travel, Anheuser-Busch and a few bike riders links fell last week. "Lance Armstrong has no place in cycling, and should be forgotten in cycling," UCI president Pat McQuaid said in a press conference. In what may be the last official word on Armstrong doping case, UCI's decision came in response to a file of evidence Released October 10 of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. Archive contains more than 1,000 pages, including 26 letters from witnesses describing how Armstrong went and implement a computer conspiracy to use illegal drugs and blood transfusions to get an advantage - and the method of drug failed drug test. After appropriate USADA listed online, people can decide who is lying: all witnesses or Armstrong. Level of evidence, including the story of the pilot talking tactics for Armstrong denies doping keep all but the most loyal supporters, many of them cancer patients inspired by Armstrong successful fight against disease and work with Livestrong, a foundation he established. Armstrong Livestrong left the President last week, but charity can be your shelter in the future. He continued to participate in events such Livestong last weekend on the 15th anniversary of the charity in Austin, Texas. Livestrong CEO Doug Ulman, said last week that the organization received "lots of messages from people who say they admire and respect the decision of the Lance" resigned as president. For many supporters of Livestrong, Armstrong's first cancer survivors. "The most important thing for them is to continue to work," said Ulman. "It's pretty humbling to see the outpouring of support from people." It will take time to assess the effect of doping cases in the foundation, although the organization has shown that it can spread the mission of the founder. Although the sponsor of Armstrong dropped, some say they will continue to operate on Livestrong. From USADA Armstrong lose their titles in August, Ulman said that the dollar amount of donations to LIVESTRONG nearly 8 percent from the same period in 2011, approximately $ 3.4 million. The number of donors fell 3 percent, he said. The release notes that the evidence used against Armstrong slapped explosion last week, however, Armstrong's decision not to cooperate with investigators led gathered and forwarded to the UCI, and also released to the public. USADA accused of having a personal vendetta against him. He refuses to fight the charges in the arbitration, because he said the process was unfair. In August, USADA CEO Travis Tygart told USA Today that the Armstrong Sports can be part of the "solution". "Instead, (Armstrong and his lawyers) launched their attack against us, but actually a lot of it can be prevented some extent as provided in the rules if he had been honest and want to meet to advance the sport for excellent "; Tygart said later. Tygart said at the time that Armstrong will face a lighter sentence and can only lose two of seven Tour de France titles, and the limits within eight years I have kept valid evidence. But now may be too late. "The way it works is that the (working together) before a person is lost in order to investigate," said Richard Young, USADA lawyer Bryan Cave LLP and the company. "You can not say," I'm not. I do not. I do not. But now you have me, so I'll admit it and go and get some rest. It does not work. ' But America loves comeback stories. If Armstrong admit mistakes, experts say can improve their public stature, such as Tiger Woods made in the face of personal scandal in 2010. One problem for Armstrong it could be that he has invested heavily in the negative, and legal experts say that the confession may make you more vulnerable to civil or criminal action. Earlier this year, the federal government catch a criminal investigation to determine whether Armstrong and other fraud team committed U.S. Postal Service cycling, but did not provide reasons for rejecting the case. An insurance company in Texas demanding the return of $ 7.5 million in bonus Armstrong win the Tour. After overcoming cancer to win the Tour de France, Armstrong could feel the "indestructible," Mukasey said. So it is not unlikely that nature has to give up, even today. "He has raised millions and millions of dollars to fight cancer, and can find its way back to the middle of America," Mukasey said. "But I do not know what's in their best interest to support the allegations."

Obama, Romney shifting focus to the national economy at the end of the debate

Mitt Romney accused the U.S. force abroad is undermined by the weakness in the home, while President Obama argued that the country is "stronger now than when I took office," the debate to focus on foreign policy issue the problem that led to the campaign: the economy.

The axes of foreign affairs are about a third of the way through the third and final debate that the candidates were asked how they perceive the U.S. position in the world.

Romney, a Republican, said the U.S. role to "create a more peaceful world", and for that, "America must be strong. United States must lead. '

"For this to happen, we need to strengthen our economy here at home. You can not have 23 million people who are struggling to find work. You can not have economic development in the past three years will continue to decrease the growth rate, "he said.

Obama replied that since he was driving end the war in Iraq, Afghanistan start moving and strengthening alliances with foreign partners, the country is in a position "to start rebuilding America."

Romney is the wrong approach both within and outside the country, Obama said, tying with what the president said the promotion of the previous government "wrong and unwise policy."

"He praised George Bush as a good economic manager and Dick Cheney as someone who shows great wisdom and judgment. And bring us back to the kind of approach that got us into this mess is not the way to maintain leadership in the 21st century, "Obama said.

Aggressive exchange underscored the high stakes in a debate two weeks before the election is a tie.

Obama, who has been the head before falling from the opening of the debate in Denver dream, of course attacking and trying to build a natural advantage as commander in chief, accusing his rival adopt a vague and indecisive approach to foreign policy can encourage the enemies of the country during the threat persists.

Romney responded by setting aside the attacks, saying they did not meet the serious challenges - and opportunities - compared to countries like the Middle East convulses in agony wide.

Romney, in line with the previous discussion, took more moderate than it has in most campaigns.

He praised Obama for the death of terrorist leader Osama bin Laden, but said the country "can not kill our way" for a solution to the Middle East. He said the answer is more economic opportunities and the expansion of freedom
