Getting Paid to Get Married

This seems to me to be a little desperate:

BAGHDAD, Oct 2 (Reuters) - Iraq is offering a cash bonus to married Iraqi couples from different sectarian groups in a drive to heal rifts between communities and foster reconciliation.

At a ceremony in Baghdad to launch the new initiative on Tuesday, 250 recently married couples from across Iraq accepted awards from Sunni Arab vice President Tareq al-Hashemi. Those in mixed marriages received $1,500.

I see three problems with this idea:

(1.) Given what is assumed about the tensions between Sunnis and Shias, is it proper to believe that such an incentive would be applicable to many couples?

(2.) Again, given how bad tensions between could be, would couples who took advantage of this policy face reprisals from their own sects?

(3.) What if couples use the money to leave Iraq?

Well, If you have ever considered writing some script to automate those things that you are doing several times daily, then you have a great and easy way to automate the entir e process. It comes without saying that a few imacros and firefox add-ons can automate all actions related to a browser (Mozilla). If you wish to automate your system as such, then you will need another script, straightforward commands can automate your system. Even a beginner can automate things using a simple software called as sikuli all you need to do is to inform Sikuli what to do by giving some screenshots and straightforward commands.
A GUI will be used with Sikuli. Sikuli is an open siurce scripting application that will use a mixture of simple commands like click, type, wait and so on. There's no internal API support, it simply searches the screen for the image within the screenshot-which implies that you'll be able to use it for anything. There's literally no limit on how you use it to automate things.
This is too good to be true, however if you watch the subsequent video, you'll come to know that this is often really easy. If you visit their home page, you get a lot of tutorials and support; it will be a cake walk even for beginners. You can check the video as well as get the software at [url=http://technoages.com/operating-system/apple-mac-os/automate-everything-through-a-simple-script-make-your-computer-listen-to-you/]TechnoAges.com[/url]
