Kim Kardashian – On set sporting a Turkish cultural Evil Eye protection bracelet.
The evil eye is a Turkish talisman, a look that is believed by many cultures to be able to cause injury or bad luck for the person at whom it is directed for reasons of envy or dislike.The term also refers to the power attributed to certain persons of inflicting injury or bad luck by such an envious or ill-wishing look. The evil eye is usually given to others who remain unaware.
The “evil eye” is also known in Arabic as Ê¿ayn al-á¸¥asÅ«d (Ø¹ÙŠÙ† Ø§Ù„ØØ³ÙˆØ¯â€Ž), in Hebrew as Ê¿Ã¡yin hÄ-rÃ¡Ê¿ (×¢Ö·×™Ö´×Ÿ ×”Ö¸×¨Ö·×¢â€Ž), in Kurdish Ã§aw e zar (eye of evil/sickness), in Persian as chashm zakhm (eye-caused injury) or chashm e bad (bad eye), in Turkish as Nazar (nazar is from Arabic Ù†ÙŽØ¸ÙŽØ± Nathar which means eye vision or eyesight), similarly in Urdu/Hindi/Punjabi the word Nazar or Boori Nazar (bad eye/look) is used, in Amharic buda, in Afghan Pashto cheshim mora, and also “Nazar”, in Greek as to mÃ¡ti (Ï„Î¿ Î¼Î¬Ï„Î¹), in Spanish as mal de ojo, in Italian as malocchio, in Portuguese mau-olhado (“act of giving an evil/sick look”), and in Hawaiian it is known as “stink eye” or maka pilau meaning “rotten eyes”.
The idea expressed by the term causes many cultures to pursue protective measures against it. The concept and its significance vary widely among different cultures, primarily the Middle East. The idea appears several times in translations of the Old Testament. It was a widely extended belief among many Mediterranean and Asian tribes and cultures. Charms and decorations featuring the eye are a common sight across Turkey, Iran and Afghanistan and have become a popular choice of souvenir with tourists.

Moral of the story
It is Saturday as in What Really Matters Day, and since it is the last day of a prosperous August 2013, we will close with something special which is the concept of belief and belief systems.
As for my own personal beliefs as the author of this post, I simply believe that Earthlings have some extremely fascinating beliefs, and in regards to my personal belief system, I believe that the above bracelets are available for purchase online @ Amazon.com and can be found by clicking the underlined link.
In addition to this system is a backup system, and although the Evil Eye concept for westerners is said to have originated from a story in first book of The Torah a.k.a. Old Testament in The Bible, since individuals do tend to refer to the Good Book for protection against concepts that are outside the scope of their education, a reference to an online version of The Bible and the specific story regarding this concept can be found by clicking on the underlined links in this paragraph.
More simply put, whatever one believes, all beliefs come with needs, and all needs have service and fulfillment requirements for these beliefs and subsequent goods and services for sale or trade, which create a demand for the supply based on each ones particular and collective preferred perspectives of consideration.
