Mira the designer

To be a good designer I have to know the following programs:
* Adobe Photoshop
* AutoCAD
*3D Studio Max

Corel draw:
CorelDraw is a Vector Graphics Software, Allowing the user to produce World Class Illustrations with 16.7 million colours. THE SPECIAL APPLICATION OF TEXTURES AND GRAPHICS FOR 3D VISUALIZATION allows the user to give a realistic look to their designs.

Adobe photoshop:
Adobe Photoshop is an Image Processing software package that enables you to create & edit images on IBM personal computers. Adobe Photoshop is acknowledged in professional fields as the cutting-edge, the final word in image editing.
Because computer-aided design is increasingly common, many employers expect new designers to be familiar with its use as a design tool. Interior designers use computers to create numerous versions of interior space designs-images can be inserted, edited, and replaced easily and without added cost - making it possible for a client to see and choose among several designs.

AutoCAD is the most powerful and the most popular AUTOMATIC COMPUTER AIDED Drafting Program.
*With AutoCAD, you can draw 2D Drawings as well as 3D Models with Rendering.
*AutoCAD is also useful in Mechanical Drafting, Architectural Drawing, Interior Designing, etc.
*The main feature of AutoCAD is not only to create drawings but drawings with proper dimensions and scale.
3D studio max :
3D Studio Max is a tool from Kinetix for making 3D Models, Designs and also to create simple as well as complex 3-Dimensional Animations and Walk-Throughs.
* 3D modeling and Rendering.
* Architectural drawings and layouts of all kinds.
* Interior design and facility planning.
*Line drawings for the fine arts.
* Using 3D-Studio Max, is an important part of communicating with the drawing community.
* Achieve impressive presentations by simply souping up your 2D drawings and presenting them in dynamic views.
* A new paradigm for Design Visualization.
* 3D Studio Max software gives you the freedom to Experiment and Race ahead with your Ideas and Imaginations.
* Photographic & natural backgrounds made by yourself to create extraordinary environment.
* The Special effects & extra lighting effects to make the environment much more vibrant.
* Integrated Keyframe Animation. Subtle Visual Effects - Visual effects are available like fog, atmospheric effects, volumetric lighting and the effect of fire to help make, your Project Powerful and Natural.
* Powerful Materials Editor, Simple materials with full control of color, textures shininess, strength of shininess, self-illumination and opacity are built-in.
* Rich Lighting Tools, Quick, precise control of lighting effects.
* Nondestructive Booleans and Lofts Merging outer Scenes or Film Clips with the Project made in 3D Studio Max.
* Auto Back Light - Automatically position the sun for any day of the year, any time of day, any position on the earth, or any angle true north relative to your model.

Maya is the world's most powerful 3D animation and visual effects software for the film, video, broadcast, game development, interactive, and location based entertainment markets.
*Create 3D Models and Render them into Images or Movie Clips.
*Design Animations

At university they only teach us autocad 2d and 3d . I took 3d studio max as well at uni but its not required I took it as extra ( madeh e5teyareyeh).Can you imagine the lack of programs normal student knows. To coupe with that especially that I hate to be a regular student I am self tutoring using internet tutorials to know how to use photoshop , corel draw and sketch up ( a program similar to autocad but a bit easier to make 3d ). Well thanks to my friend nisreen ( she was studying graphics before going to the interior design stream)and my friends at sawfan's architects who helped me to know how to start with photoshop being an effective but not easy program to start with . Now maya is left for me so I will take it as courses with my friends starting next week hopefully . So at the end of this summer I can tell I have put my feet on the first step of being a good designer :)
I will post some pictures later of my work on each program :)

Girls are incomplete without Boys

WOMAN has MAN in it.

SHE has HE in it.

Mrs. has Mr. in it.

LADY has LAD in it.


MADAM has ADAM in it.

HOSTESS has HOST in it.

FEMALE has MALE in it and so on the list is unending

Girls are incomplete without Boys

But if you look at it the other way around, Man is only one part of Woman, and her presence is what makes him a man . So its like both men and women complete each other :P

First time

When was the last time you did something for the first time?Something you wanted to do since a long time ? Something you have different feeling about ? Confused from? Afraid it might not happen again? Something that made you feel so happy and alive?Something you want to keep?Something that only happened in your dreams and now came true ?
I felt so yesterday :)

This remind me of a quote" There is not enough darkness in all the world to put out the light of even one small candle. _Robert Alden"

You may have noticed the increased amount of notices for you to notice. I have noticed that some of my notices have not been noticed is very noticeable has been noticed that the responses to the notices have been noticeably unnoticeable. Therefore,this notice is to remind you to notice the notices and to respond to the notices because I do not want the not want the notices to go unnoticed.
If you respond it means you noticed, if not then you have a problem noticing ,and yeah its quite challenging in case you didnt notice :P

MAIDS (part one )

Well I don’t know how to start this. I don’t know were I want to reach, I just know one thing which is, I am so confused about this. Yeah I am confused whether it’s right to have a maid at house or not??

This somehow started to days ago; I went to the kitchen to get my car key, was heading to work and already late. When I opened the kitchen door I saw our two maids sitting on the table chatting and guess what one of them was smoking. Yeah smoking .You can say it was a shock to me that I didn’t know how to handle or what to do. So I pretended that I didn’t see her put the cigarette in the water glass beside her nor the other maid helping her by blowing the smoke away. I just went to the cupboard to get a glass of water to give myself time to think. Is it the right time mira to talk to her now in front of the other maid or not now? Is it the best to hush and pretend you didn’t see anything especially that your mom is away on a trip and you don’t feel like provoking problems while your mom is not here? What about maria my sister what if maria saw her smoking once and wanted to try? Can I blame her for smoking? She left her only kid to come and work in my house cant she at least smoke to forget? My dad smoke and both my mom and dad have hubble-bubble at home? How can I blame her for smoking a cigarette while my parents smoke? Would she care for my sister more than my parents? Do I have the right to blame anyone for smoking? All those questions were spinning in those few seconds I pretended I want to drink water. At the end I said bye and left to work not knowing if I did the right thing or not and I still wonder????

The Red Planet (MARS) is about to be spectacular! This month and next, Earth is catching up with Mars in an encounter that will culminate in the closest approach between the two planets in recorded history.

The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287. Due to the way Jupiter's gravity tugs on Mars and perturbs its orbit, astronomers can only be certain that Mars has not come this close to Earth in the last 5,000 years, but it may be as long as 60,000 years before it happens again.

The encounter will culminate on August 27th when Mars comes to within 34,649,589 miles of Earth and will be (next to the moon) the brightest object in the night sky. It will attain a magnitude of -2.9 and will appear 25.11 arc seconds wide. By August 27, Mars will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye. Mars will be easy to spot.

At the beginning of August it will rise in the east at 10p.m. and reach its azimuth at about 3 a.m. by the end of August when the two planets are closest, Mars will rise at nightfall and reach its highest point in the sky at 12:30a.m. That's pretty convenient to see something that no human being has seen in recorded history. So, mark your calendar at the beginning of August to see Mars grow progressively brighter and brighter throughout the month.

Note : Its an email that i recieved and i am not sure of the contents, but i find it pretty amazing :) Posted by Picasa
