He read judicial law, was awarded his bachelor’s degree in 1972, and then joined the military the following year. Then after fleeing his country in 1977 and returning two years later following the Iranian Revolution, Rouhani became part of the new government. High-level military governmental roles beckoned throughout the 1980s.

Later, Rouhani returned to school, obtaining his M.Phil. law degree from Scotland’s Glasgow Caledonian University in 1995. He then continued studying at the same institution, obtaining his Ph.D. in constitutional law four years later.

4. Angela Merkel – Germany

4. Angela Merkel ÔÇô Germany

Image Source

German Chancellor Angela Merkel may be the only female world leader on this list, but her haul of academic credentials is as impressive as those of any of her male counterparts. As a schoolgirl, Merkel was, like the majority of her peers, part of the Free German Youth communist movement. At this time, she also studied Russian and won awards for her ability in both Russian and math. In 1973 Merkel went on to read physics at Leipzig University, where she remained for five years, earning a doctorate with a thesis on quantum chemistry. Then between 1978 and 1990 she carried out research in physical chemistry at Berlin’s Academy of Sciences.

After the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, Merkel launched her political career when she signed up with the nascent Democratic Awakening party, going on to assume the role of deputy spokesperson for the stand-in pre-unification government. In 1990 she joined the Christian Democratic Union, and after being voted in during the first post-reunification elections, she held a couple of prominent cabinet positions. Then in 1998 she became the party’s secretary general, rising to be elected its leader two years later. In 2002 Merkel lost her candidacy battle to become chancellor, but in 2005 she was nominated as challenger and won the election, making history as Germany’s first female chancellor and the first leader of the unified country to hail from former East Germany.

3. Manmohan Singh – India

3. Manmohan Singh ÔÇô India

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh showed an interest in education from a very young age. Despite there being no electricity in Gah, the village where he was born, he was so determined to learn that he studied by candlelight. Singh went on to study at Hindu College in Amritsar and then Panjab University, Chandigarh, reading economics. He earned a bachelor’s degree in 1952 and a master’s two years later, graduating with first class honors both times. And with his thirst for knowledge still not satiated, Singh traveled to the U.K., where he obtained another first class honors degree at Cambridge University in 1957 and then a doctorate from Oxford University in 1962, again in the field of economics.

After that, Singh moved back to India and began teaching at Panjab University and the Delhi School of Economics. He moved on to assume various governmental roles and in due course became the Prime Minister’s economic adviser, in 1990. The following year Singh took up the position of India’s finance minister, and he eventually became the country’s prime minister in May 2004. During Singh’s term, the country saw increased economic growth – which perhaps isn’t surprising under the government of a man who pursued such a high level of education in the subject area. On May 22, 2009, Singh was reinstated as Prime Minister, making him the first Indian leader in 40 years to make such a return following a full term.

2. Elio Di Rupo – Belgium

Elio Di Rupo arguably had a lot going against him when, on December 6, 2011, he took up office as Prime Minister of Belgium. He is a French speaker, openly homosexual, leftwing and an atheist – in a country where the majority of the population speaks Dutch and tends to elect more conservative government heads. Di Rupo earned both his master’s degree and Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Mons. Between 1977 and 1978 he taught at the University of Leeds in the U.K. while he was working towards his doctorate degree.

Di Rupo embarked on his path in politics in 1980, working in the role of an attaché tied to Jean-Maurice Dehousse’s cabinet. He was voted into the Chamber of Deputies in 1987 and was appointed a senator in 1991. Then in 1994 Di Rupo became the Belgian federal government’s deputy prime minister, and the following year he was additionally named as Minister for the Economy and Telecommunications. Despite having faced different scandals and corruption throughout his political career, Di Rupo has persevered, and on December 6, 2011, he assumed office as Prime Minister of Belgium.

1. Mohamed Morsi – Egypt

1. Mohamed Morsi ÔÇô Egypt

Mohamed Morsi grew up in Sharqiya, in Egypt’s Nile River Delta region. He read engineering at Cairo University and obtained a bachelor’s degree in 1975 and a master’s in 1978, before traveling to the U.S. to further his studies. Morsi achieved his Ph.D. in materials science at the University of Southern California in 1982 and then held an assistant professorship at California State University, Northridge up to 1985. That year, he moved back to Egypt to teach at Zagazig University, working as head of the materials engineering faculty until 2010.

Between 2000 and 2005 Morsi was a parliamentary independent for the Muslim Brotherhood. Then following the 2011 Egyptian Revolution, the Muslim Brotherhood established the Freedom & Justice Party, and Morsi became its president. In June 2012 he became arguably the first Egyptian president to be elected through democratic process, but his presidency was short-lived. Morsi’s apparent desire for unrestricted power and strict Islamist lawmaking did not sit well with Egyptians, who protested on the streets in 2012. Morsi was subsequently removed from power by Egyptian armed forces in July 2013. At the time of writing, a permanent replacement for Morsi has not been elected, although Adly Mansour took on the role of acting president when Morsi was deposed.

Top iPhone Apps to Learn A New Language

In a world growing rapidly more diverse day by day, learning a second language is becoming more relevant than ever. Luckily, advances in technology have brought the power of learning a new language to our fingertips. What follows is a list of the top five language learning apps available for the iPhone:

Byki uses the method of ‘declarative learning’ to lock the words and phrases of another language into the user’s memory through the utilization of its flashcard interface. Users have the ability to hear the pronunciation of these words and phrases spoken through the voice of a native speaker, and the users are also given the ability to slow down these pronunciations in order to better pick-up on any subtle nuances of any word or phrase. Byki is available for 45 different languages.

Busuu is a free app which teaches a language through community engagement. Users can build a strong understanding of a language by practicing it within the context of a dialogue, as well as communicating directly with a native speaker. No internet connection is required to use this app, and with difficulties from beginner to advanced, users can enjoy extensive lessons through fun and interactive challenges and tests.

MindSnacks stands out amongst language learning apps by distancing itself from the typical flashcard-style lesson plan and turning learning into fun. Users can develop a new vocabulary and language skills through comprehensive and addicting mini-games. This app also adapts to the user’s experience, returning the user to previous lessons that were first met with more difficulty than others. MindSnacks’s unique algorithm is proven to greatly reinforce both memorization and retention. The initial app is free, but advancing users can purchase the in-game package in order to unlock fifty more lessons per language.

Babbel allows users with specific language-based needs to achieve his or her goal. If a user is taking a trip to a foreign country and needs to learn the basics to get by, the user can simply undergo the ‘Travel’ section of this app. Likewise, if a user is meeting with clients that speak another language, the ‘Business’ portion of this app can assist greatly. With thousands of words accompanied by pictures, pronunciations spoken directly by native speakers, and examples of sentences that place the words in context, as well as live evaluations of speech-recognized user pronunciations, Babbel is the perfect accompaniment for tackling a new language. This app is also 100% free.

TripLingo has been named “2012 Business Travel Innovation of the Year” by the leading business media brand Fast Company.

This free app comes with a number of basic languages from Spanish to Mandarin to even Hebrew, and for a low price, full language packages can be purchased.

Although the most effective way of learning a language is by engulfing one’s self directly into the culture itself, these apps are a wonderful way of getting started. Buenos suerte!

Top iPhone Apps For Business

The iPhone has become an invaluable business tool. The improved functionality of the iPhone coupled with the wide variety of business apps available make it easy for any business professional to run his company, even when he is on the road. Many people are leaving the laptop at home and just bringing the iPhone on business trips.

If you are a dynamic and busy professional, then you need to look into getting an iPhone to help make your life easier. There are literally thousands of apps available for the iPhone, but there are 10 specific apps that will increase business productivity and put the power of advanced communications in your hands.

The app also has maps of your destination that will help you to get where you are going once you arrive. If you need to change your travel plans, then TripIt can help.

Documents To Go Microsoft Office Suite

One of the misconceptions about the iPhone is that it can give a user full access to Microsoft documents right out of the box. While you will be able to read Microsoft Word documents or Excel spreadsheets, you will not be able to edit them without the Documents To Go Microsoft Office Suite app. This app also works in conjunction with Google Documents to help you take advantage of cloud storage.

Evernote

Evernote is one of those apps that you don’t understand at first, but then cannot live without once you have it. This is an app that allows you to organize important pictures, make verbal notes to yourself and write down a number in your notepad and access it later. This app crosses over several platforms and makes it very easy to organize your thoughts and important files.

Skype

When people hear that Skype has an iPhone app, the most common reaction is that it seems redundant. The iPhone can already contact people directly with its phone function. But Skype is one of the largest business social networking platforms on the Internet. The iPhone app allows you to connect with anyone in the world and still use the video conferencing feature.

Dragon Dictation

Dragon is the software developer known for its dictation software. Busy professionals on the road do not always have time to stop and type in notes or change their social networking status. The Dragon Dictation app allows you to dictate a document and it does all of the typing. You can also send out a social networking message or change your status. It makes creating full business letters on an airplane much easier.

Expensify

Expense reports can be a pain because you have to collect all of your information and then compile it into a report back at your office. With the Expensify app, you can collect pictures of receipts and log all of your expenses as they happen. When your business trip is over, you just generate a report and you can email to anyone that you want.

CamCard

CamCard is a business card reading app that allows you to take a snapshot and then organize your business cards in any way that you want. This replaces the large collection of business cards you try to carry with you and puts all of your contact information onto the one device that you have with you at all times.

Siri

The Siri virtual assistant app is the one that you see in the iPhone television commercials talking to celebrities. This intuitive app is actually an extremely powerful tool that is the equivalent of having a personal assistant with you at all times. Siri accesses the information you need from its connection to the Internet. All you need to do is ask a question and Siri will find you the answer.

Cisco WebEx

Cisco is the undisputed leader in video conferencing and interactive meeting applications, but it had not released an iPhone app until this one. With the WebEx app, you can tie into any virtual meeting that utilizes the WebEx platform and get full interactive functionality.

Box.net

If you are going to choose a free cloud storage app for your iPhone, then you might as well pick one that has 5GB of storage and can work across a wide variety of platforms. It is not taking long for the Box.net app to be the cloud storage app of choice for business professionals all over the world.

If you are a business professional, then you need an iPhone with the right apps on it. With the right apps, you can run your entire business from any location in the world.
