Hobbits Money or Paper Fiat Currencies ? Choose the Real Ones !

Currency in Harry Potter series consists of three different coins.
 In decreasing order of value, they are: Galleon, Sickle and Knut. 
They are Gold, silver, and Bronze, respectively.
 According to Rubeus Hagrid, there are 17 Sickles in a Galleon, and 29 Knuts in a Sickle, meaning there are 493 Knuts to a Galleon.
Since that Wizarding Currency are made of Gold, Silver and Bronze, J. K Rowling wrote that ’Money’ in itself is thought to be one of the five exceptions to Gamp’s Law of Elemental Transfiguration, meaning it CANNOT be created from nothing. 
So, how is it possible that our Muggle Money a.k.a Paper/Fiat Money can‘Magically’ multiplies its value out of nothing when it is made of Paper, Plastic & Digital number?

Soldier, Worker, Rebel and Anarch : Ernst Junger's Meditation

" It is not just that nation states 
have become divorced from 
their ethnic make up, but also 
they have become entwined 
with the processes of globalism, 

which seeks to undermine any sovereignty, 
any border, any group, in favor of the free flow 
of capital and the global market-place".

1. The Anarch is not the enemy of power
or authority, but he does not seek them.
Because he does not need them
to become who he is.

2. A true chameleon, the Anarch adapts
to all things, bcos nothing reaches him.
He is in service of history while being beyond it.
He lived in all times at once, present,past
and future.

3. The Rebel carries on in secret- he hides
in the shadows- while the Anarch remains
in plain sight. Finally, whereas the Rebel
is banished by society, the Anarch banished
himself. He is not excluded; he is emancipated.

4. The more we dedicate ourselves to change,
the more we must be intimately persuaded that
behind it hides a calm being.

5. Whereas the anarchist want to abolish power
the anarch is content to break all ties to it.

6. In Eumeswil, the hero no longer needs to
resort to the forest to remain untouched by
the ambivalent nihilism. It is enough for him
to have reached an elevation (in society) that
allow him to observe everything from a distance
without needing to move away.

7. The incredible encircelment of man was prepared
long ago by the theories that aim at giving a flawless
logical explanation of the world and that march in 
lockstep with the development of technology. If the Rebel
chooses marginalization, it is above all to guard
against the forces of destruction, to break the encirclement.

8. Can we not merely preserve, but strengthen the
roots which still cling to the prime depths of Being ?
This is the essential question of our time.

Haji Sharin Low Journey in Islam

NST news 2012: SOMETIMES fate intervenes which changes the course of our destiny. I was born in a shop house in Jalan Wong Ah Fook, Johor Baru, and studied in the English College (now known as Maktab Sultan Abu Bakar). My dream was to be a lawyer when I was young.
And I would have been a lawyer if my father had not been diagnosed with lung cancer. I was 19 and studying law in the United Kingdom at that time. I had to come home to Johor Baru as my father, who was funding my studies, could no longer do so. I have two older sisters and a younger brother. My wife and I also have four children — two daughters and two sons. My sons and daughters are all married and I have seven grandchildren.
After I came back, I had to look for a job and found one at a factory in Tampoi, Johor Baru.
It was here that I decided to convert to Islam because I made many friends of the Muslim faith at the factory. Unlike some converts who had problems with their families after they converted, I was lucky as my parents and siblings were all open-minded. My late mother, who passed away 27 years ago, would keep a set of cooking utensils specially for me, and she would take out this set of utensils to cook for me and my family during Chinese New Year.
Even after my conversion, I still go home to Johor Baru for every reunion dinner on Chinese New Year’s eve. After I left the factory in Tampoi, I went to Kuala Lumpur to work for an assembly plant that assembles electrical products. We are a close-knit family even though we are of different faiths. My younger brother, for instance, is now a reverend after having graduated from the Trinity College.
My mother told us that we had to help finance his studies, and we did just that. Although my mother is no longer with us, my siblings and I still gather for the Chinese New Year celebrations. This is one of the reasons I ventured into the halal food business five years ago, with the opening of my first outlet in Shah Alam.
At that time, I did envision I would one day have 18 halal restaurants offering Chinese cuisine. But this is how fate would have it. I started a restaurant because I missed my mother’s cooking so much. I now have restaurants in nearly all the states, in places such as Johor Baru, Klang, Petaling Jaya, Kuala Lumpur, Kuantan and Cyberjaya, among others. I also wanted Muslims to savour authentic halal Chinese dishes. I know many Muslims do not like to eat duck, but there is a small number who loves it. My roast duck dish is one of the signature dishes of my restaurants.
And I am working on a special recipe which I hope embraces the 1Malaysia concept, and will be enjoyed by all the races in the country. A few months ago, I opened my 16th outlet in Jakarta, Indonesia, and my latest outlet (18th) opened in Kota Baru, Kelantan, on Dec 12.
Sharin Low Abdullah, 66, is the owner of a chain of ‘halal’ Chinese restaurants. He is also the chairman of the Selangor Chinese Muslim Association (MACMA Selangor).
