A proposal to build a South Asian Union (SAU).
Subject: A proposal to build a South Asian Union (SAU) like European Union by expanding SAARC states. His Excellencies, Presidents, Prime Ministers, Kings, Head of Governments & States, Political & Religious Leaders, Intellectuals, Educationists, Economists, Welfare Organizations, Mass People of South Asian region. Peace be upon all of you, history is repeating from the creation of human life till now and will be repeated until the last final judgment of Creator. Actually, Creator created us as his best creation of life but we divided it into different nations, religions, cultures, languages, ideologies, etc in several thousands of years since the appearance of 1st human Adam (PBUH). We don't know when the human life on earth will be finished for ever on dooms day, but some think that human life never stop repeating it's wrongs. Now we have seen that the days of the human being are becoming more critical, insecure, divided among our selves in different ideas, increasing of poverty, and destruction of economy of some nations in comparison with the economy of some rich countries of the west. So the time for South Asian nations to unite as a strong body which is most caring for the inhabitants of this region has come, and in this way, we can develop ourselves. I have no right to waste your valuable time, but my heart is pressing me to place this proposal or advice to the holy hearts of our great rulers of the people of SAARC countries. Proposal for future South Asian Union (SAU) 1. The mass people of this region want to abolish visa system for them selves in order to enjoy traveling facility freely and free trade among the regional countries like EU states. We can include Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, Turkey, Cyprus, Iran, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, China, Mongolia, North Korea, South Korea, Japan & Philippine. The Afghan president his Excellency Mr. Hamid Karzai and his Government also shows interest for entering into SAARC. 2. If we can include thirty seven more countries (Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, Turkey, Cyprus, Iran, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, China, Mongolia, North Korea, South Korea, Japan & Philippine) with the seven countries of SAARC (Pakistan, India, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Maldives) , then this organization or union will be one of the strongest unions. Then we can establish a powerful single currency like EURO as, for example SACU (South Asian Currency), dollar, or any other selected by the forum. And currency value can be fixed by averaging the currency values of the nations concerned. 3. All states will keep there own national flags as state flag and one common union flag, like that of EU. 4. We can establish joint military command council for the defense of the whole region like EU. That means we can unite in a union to ensure human life security along with a strong economy like European Union. I do not know when the people of this region of South Asia will start to feel love and affection for each other, and will be united. But we should try to establish a golden future for ourselves. If successful, then generation after generation of this region will remember you for your kindness. God bless us with eternal & external peace. Yours, Saulat Kamran

Abuse of Power - Information for Survivors of Police Domestic Violence
Women whose batterers are police officers or firefighters are especially vulnerable to the danger and isolation associated with domestic violence. They often receive a hostile response from law enforcement when they call for help; advocates often don't understand their situation, and standard remedies are ineffective or dangerous. Written in a conversational style, our site gives voice to these women, acknowledging their realities. We are committed to sharing this information with other police victims and advocates. I'm interested in how I might better present and organize the information, and improve the technical aspects of the site.

Keene State College Radio: WKNH
http://www.WKNH.ORG is the site for Keene State College Radio. It was designed by myself, and I have no training in website design excecpt a copy of Dreamweaver MX given to me by the station and a little motivation. I'd really like some help on trying to get this site looking great. The first problem I notice myself is that it's very thin on content, that can be fixed in time when I have more information to put on there. I could really use some help on styles and other things you might notice though. Thanks!

Mission to Honduras
This is my first official "all by myself" website. I took a local community college webdesign course to enable me to author this site. It is a site that is to assist my daughter and I in a fund-raising effort on behalf of our church for a mission to Honduras. I am a bit frustrated as I cannot get the layout to work correctly between Mozilla and IE. I finally gave up and made the correct look in IE under the supposition that the majority of web viewers use it. Please offer your assessments of the site and what I might do different to enhance it. Also what might I do to give the site the same layout abilities in the different browsers? ~Dava~

( See Critique ) American Distractions
I'm self taught in web design and graphic art. This is the first website that I have created for an organization that myself and some collegues founded. We are moving towards becoming a non-profit entity, but the paperwork hasn't gone through yet. The main goal of the site will be to inform people of the events and projects that we are working on, but along with that I'd like to strengthen the community in general (and speciffically the arts community). There is a lot of information and graphics, and it is steadily being added to and growing. I would love any coments or insight other designers may have, since it is targeted to a (relatively) small audiance, I want to make it as interesting as possible. thanks.

Akita Rescue Serving the SE portion of the USA
Heart of Dixie Akita Rescue, Inc., is dedicated to providing information about the Akita breed of dog, and provide a resource to adoption. With that reason in mind we intend our site to be easy to navigate so a visitor can quickly find the information they seek. So, in one line I would ask for a review concerning "Ease of Use".

Democratic Voice of Burma is a non-profit Burmese media organization committed to responsible journalism.
The purpose of the site is to provide accurate and unbiased news to the people of Burma. It is run by a Norwegian-government-funded radio station that opposes the government in Burma. I will evaluate the news content of the Web site, but I don't know enough to evaluate the site format and presentation, design, performance/loading time, ease of navigation, layout, use of illustrations, links, completeness of information, etc. I'm not even sure what the pertinent questions are, but would appreciate constructive critiques and concrete suggestions for improvement.

Hedgebrook Retreat for Women Writers
This is a redesign recently put up. I wish I could link you to the old site as well. I think the new site is awful (blah design with dull black and white images, poor navigation, dry text) and want them to bring back the old site. Was wondering if it's just me or how a pro would view it.
(Folks, this one's well worth a look! Nice work, Brenda!)

International Dragon Boat Festival
This site is for the International Dragon boat festival, 2005 held in Windsor Ontario Canada. All proceeds raised by the festival go to breast cancer. This is my first 'offical' website i've done, and am looking for some general tips/critisicms on what i've done. I am interested in hearing a bit about the appearance etc...but the client is already extremely pleased with what i've done, so it's more to do with improvements to be made on the coding side. Thanks !
(Parts are a bit difficult to read, but overall it's a great site for a great cause! Well worth a look, folks!)

Black Hills Pow Wow Association
I'm a first-time web designer. I usually do graphic design - commerical print. I want to know if there is an easier way of doing things. I tried doing rollovers on the nav bar, but the Home didn't work. We feature the "Artist" of the poster design. I used that poster to design the site. Next year, the site will be completely different, because the artwork will be different. I used photoshop to do the site mostly...and dropped it into Dreamweaver...which I know very little about. Just enough to be dangerous! Thank you for your help! Lonnie

Reviewing Web Sites

One designer recently said

"You learn good design by looking at bad design."
... another states
"You learn good design through the works of others."

Both of these are correct -- but only to a certain point. We believe that you learn good design through the works of others only when you make an effort to actually evaluate the work and state why you think it works or doesn't work. Only then do you actually make it part of your knowledge-base. We're all born with the same set of tools. Those tools you develop and 'grow' are the ones that you use for life -- the effective ones.

If you find a site you like, make an effort to state why you like it. If it doesn't work, state why -- regardless of whether or not you tell the rest of us about your feelings. Just do it!
