Ali Razeghi, an Iranian businessman and a Tehran scientist claims to have invented the Time Machine successfully and registered as “The Aryayek Time Traveling Machine”.

According to Razeghi, his invention is said to allow users to see the life eight years in the future through a print out after the readings from just a touch of the user. With a set of complicated algorithms, the device can “predict five to eight years of the future life of any individual, with 98 percent accuracy”.

Razeghi, 27 years of age, and currently the managing director of Iran’s Centre for Strategic Inventions, he already has 179 registered inventions under his name. And he said that he has been working hard for the last 10 years for his time machine.

He also said that his little invention that could only fit in a computer case can help the government – “Naturally a government that can see five years into the future would be able to prepare itself for challenges that might destabilize it,” he said. “As such we expect to market this invention among states as well as individuals once we reach a mass production stage.”

Razeghi’s time machine have received criticisms already from his relatives saying that he is trying to play God but he just humbly responded “This project is not against our religious values at all.

Facebook Expose Evidences of Paul Ceglia’s Possession Claims

After Facebook became the most popular social network in the world, many reports have shocked the world claiming to be the original owner of the social network giant. Up until now, the story is still going on and maybe not close to ending.

Facebook Inc. moved on Monday to oppose the statements by a businessman that he is the owner of a significant share in the social network company.

In an action to ignore a lawsuit last in 2010 made by Paul Ceglia, the social network company exposed the outcomes of a very long investigation that involved emails and forensic examination from Mark Zuckerberg’s college days.

Mr. Paul Ceglia, stated in his suit that he had an agreement which entitles him to half or 50% of Marks Zuckerberg’s Facebook share, which happens to be worth billions of dollars.

In its most powerful answer in the case, Facebook recognized the statements as “a fraud and a lie” and called Paul Ceglia as eager for cash, which shows that he is trying to get cash from the America’s most valuable social network and fastest-growing company.

Sandford Dumain, Mr. Ceglia’s lawyer, from Milberg LLP, stated in a statement that: “Mr. Ceglia deserves his day in court, where the jury will resolve this dispute over the ownership of Facebook.”

Paul Ceglia’s, was caught and charged for scamming clients out of $200,000 at about the time that the movie “The Social Network” (the story about Facebook’s origin) was in promotion. Mr. Ceglia submitted the lawsuit and created what he claimed was a deal with Mr. Zuckerberg for a the greater part of Facebook.

Emails were also attached in Mr. Ceglia’s suit, which appears to be allegedly exchanging emails with Mr. Zuckerberg showing that he is entitled to a large stake in Facebook.

To oppose the move of Mr. Ceglia, the social network company hired Kroll Inc., a corporate investigative company, andStroz Friedberg, a forensic company, which acquired over 200 emails of Mr. Zuckerberg from Harvard University’s server and examined the electronic fingerprints of Paul Ceglia’s emails, based on documents submitted together with the company’s action.

According to Facebook, those evidences shows how Paul Ceglia faked the agreement and tried to hide everything with fake emails.
