Transistors are the fundamental elements for a processor to perform calculations.

To be precise, the limitation has to be shaped in such a way that it no longer would be a constraint. Basically, in the manufacturing industry, constraint is referred by the name called bottleneck.

Investing in businesses that deal in arenas against Islamic values - such as pork, alcohol, pornography, or ones that lead to gossip such as media - is completely prohibited. However, banking and finance under Islam have the same motives as conventional banking - to generate money for the banking organization by lending capital.

    Macroeconomic forces affect all of us in our daily lives. Inflation rates influence the prices we pay for goods and services and, in turn, the value of our incomes and our savings. Interest rates determine the cost of borrowing and the yield on bank accounts and bonds, while exchange rates affect our command over foreign products as well as the value of our foreign assets. And all of this represents just the tip of the iceberg. Numerous macro variables - ranging from unemployment to productivity - are equally important in shaping the economic environment in which we live.

    In the years since this encounter with my mother, I have developed some terminology to capture and communicate what I experienced. I've come to call what I experienced the process of being known. This is a much deeper and richer experience than simply knowing the bare facts of my story.
