Understanding Arab Jewellery – The Hand Of Fatima

The alternative Islamic name for this charm is the Hand of Fatima, in reference to the daughter of Mohammed, Fatima Zahra. For the Jewish community the name for it is the Hand of Miriam, in reference to the sister of Moses and Aaron. In the Jewish communities is more likely to be found in the Sephardic Jewry more than the Ashkenazi Jewelry.The hamsa hand appears both in a two-thumbed, bilaterally symmetrical form, and in a more natural form in which there is only one thumb.

Fractional Pricing – The "9.99" Psychological Pricing Strategy

The "9" marketing trick is called fractional pricing, or, charm prices and that is when prices end in such digits: 95, 97, 98 or 99. In our minds, what matters isn't the fact that they are huge numbers or the last numbers before the next whole number point (100), the catch is because these numbers have only two digits, whereas if rounded up to the next whole number point, there are three digits.And because of how our minds process numbers, we tend to look at numbers from left to right in most cases (including countries where things are read the other way around), as if we were reading text, the term for this action is coined as the "left-digit effect".In a typical consumer's mind, $0.99 or $0.97 will appear lower than $1, which is $1.00, it will appear lower because it is literally lower, but in reality, it will cause a psychological impact into...

The poem is a Shakespearean sonnet. Its 14 lines are divided in three quatrains. The idea of the beauty of the "fair youth" has been introduced by a comparison with the charm of a summer's day in the first quatrain.

Plant Spirit Shamanism – Hoodoo Plant Magic

The hoodoo tradition of the American South is another that works with plant energy while often not requiring a patient to 'take' a medicine to experience healing.The word 'hoodoo' has African origins, and is used to describe various forms of magic, folk healing, and 'hexing', using roots and herbs. Nowadays, the hoodoo practitioner is often referred to as 'root doctor' or 'juju man'. These quaint terms belie the power of the tradition, however, because in Africa, these practitioners were priests (botonons) and sorcerers (azondoto), who were rightly feared and respected for their herbal expertise and knowledge of the spirits and bochio, or soul.When these priests arrived in America as slaves, they brought their knowledge with them, but the unavailability of some plants meant they had to adopt Native American and even European plant allies and...
