Liberty for Bangladesh
3.6 points higher than that of the last year, in the Asia-Pacific region Bangladesh has been ranked 29th out of 41 countries. The components were business freedom, trade freedom, fiscal freedom, government spending, monetary freedom, investment freedom, financial freedom, property rights, labour freedom and freedom from corruption. We think it should read freedom for corruption.
Hide your dirt
According to victims, hired men of Landmark Engineers and Real Estate Limited occupied land at Ashulia at dead of night on April 8 with blessings of two influential government officials. This happened while a civil case involving the plot is still pending with the High Court.
The victims tried lodging a case with the police but had to drop some names as some of the accused were relations of a high-ranking police official. According to the victims, one Fazlul Karim claimed the ownership of the property using false documents and sold it to one Sakhina Khatun, who sold it to Doel Group. Singapore-Bangladesh Properties bought the land from Doel Group and sold it to Landmark.
If you have valuable land, keep it hidden by burying it under the ground. Er, yeah, something like that.
“The developed countries don't want to clean those ships as the task involves money. So they simply dump them in countries like Bangladesh,” said Abdul Momin Talukder, chairman of the standing committee on environment and forest ministry.

Future of energy lies in the past
We were thinking energy source would be something newfangled like solar, wind or preferably 2 billion hamsters running on their little treadmills to generate power. Going back to coal has other issues like rehabilitating the affected people, loss of agriculture lands and pollution. We suggest going with Operation Hamsters. They don't have unions.

Lovin' With Dr. Lovelove
The Love Doctor that makes Cupid cry for his mommy…to get his diaper changed.
FOR those who lovelove the Lovelove, I would like to announce that there is now a Facebook fan page in my name created by none other than Lady Lovelove herself. I know you will, undoubtedly, join. Any chance you can get to come the tiniest bit closer to Me, no?
Hello Doctor Strangelove,
P.S: stop indulging 16 and 13 year-olds, people are starting to get the wrong idea about you. :))
Dear No Problems,
But I must delay ripping you apart for a bit longer so hold your horses. I would like to clear the confusion about you being deluded. Let me quote: “…the world should get a glimpse of the problems of an intelligent guy for a change, don't you agree?” I think you, me, and all of my countless readers have figured out now that you ARE indeed, deluded. Of course you're not intelligent. True, you are a notch above the usual 13-year-old girl, but that's only because you're a man. It's through no credit to you. We both know the girls got fewer gray cells, don't we?
So here goes:
b) You are only a little more intelligent than 13-year-olds. Because I'm a Genius like that, I can tell you're doing undergrad and get a clear enough idea of your IQ level and believe me, it's nothing to be proud of. You better do REALLY well and graduate because otherwise, you'll be broke too.
c) You're extremely deluded, on the verge of psychosis. Now that I've proven this to you, you can classify this as a problem. You never know when one day you're going to wake up, married, with seventeen grandchildren who call you “Papa” and have fun at your advantage while they imitate the sounds that come out during your hourly bowel movements. I would personally consult with you, but by the time I finish this, I will have ceased to care.
P.S.: You're the one 'loving' yourself. I'm pretty sure it's not me people are getting the wrong idea about. =)

Your one-stop junction for love, hate, suggestions and counters for the Rising Stars.
Word on our last issue:
Hussain M Elius: I got Dälek's music after reading this issue. It's definitely different... a little darker from mainstream hip-hop.
Eshpelin Mishtak: "The retards guide ..." was retarding. I didn't even get the point of it. But, the loo thingy was cool (with many ooo's). Lovelove, as usual, was humorous at his failed attempts at being humorous! But then again, the Heartbreak Kid article was a masterpiece, best column I have read in quite a while. Typical Osama!
Kathya Sanyat: I had eyes for nothing but the centrefold... I want that HP slate so badly.
Shamayeta Rahman: Osama's back!
Redwan Hossain: RS is back, better and stronger compared to the last issue. Starting with Dr. Lovelove, who showed us why we love to read his ever so "pochafying" replies to all those poor, naive (yet somewhat stupid) souls. Dr. you rock! The retards guide pulled one or two funny lines here and there but it wasn't anything special. On the other hand "of loos and GDP" was much better. Adnans' one was hilarious when he went on to say how load-shedding would cause mutations. Lastly, Osama I loved your narration of the wrestling match between Shawn Michaels and the Undertaker. Since I saw the match myself, I could feel each and every line that you wrote. It's heartbreaking to lose such a legend in the wrestling industry; someone as great as Shawn Michaels. We will surely miss him and those moments with triple h during their stint at d-generation.
Muhammad Mustafa Monowar: RS is always the same. The way I like it. But I think it should contain some place for amateur photographers.
