World Famous People Tagged & Identified

I saw this picture on a couple of blogs (first here, then here), so i tried to identify some of the characters portrayed. So i decided to tag them and see if i can identify them with the help of the community. Here is a scaled down version of the picture, click it to see it full scale (~750 KB in size). The original untagged picture can be found here. High resolution versions of the original picture here and here (thanks Isam). Qwaider also applied the numbered tags to the higher resolution version, many thanks!

KDE 4 Wallpaper Collection (amazingly beautiful)

I LOVE desktop wallpapers. Specially colorful, vibrant ones. KDE (wikipedia) and GNOME (wikipedia) usually never fail at providing a good selection of default wallpapers. Recently, the Oxygen Team unveiled the wallpaper collection for KDE 4.0 (more on KDE 4 here). The wallpapers were breathtakingly beautiful. You can see or even download the entire collection here.

Israeli soldiers recall torture experiences

I found this via this post on Sabbah’s Blog. An upcoming documentary (not sure where it will air, but i am on the look out) features six Israeli female soldiers recalling their experiences in the Israeli army torturing Palestinians. Good to hear that this is finally coming out more vocally.

Anyway, this is originally a Reuters news report that you can read here.
