Asalaamu Alaikum bro

Interestingly enough, these researchers sent out one false tweet and it made the papers in less the 17 hours!!!

Dare we trust in anything we read nowadays Huh?



The Gossip Equation



Time (taken for spread of gossip) = estimate of time  [( log v / phi) x (log squared 1 / phi)]


Where

v  = number of vertices of communication
phi  = conductance

Say: "O ye my servants who believe! Fear your Lord, good is (the reward) for those who do good in this world. Spacious is God's earth! those who patiently persevere will truly receive a reward without measure!" [39:10]
