Trump vs Putin: the show of strength in the Syrian theatre

Falcon 9: SpaceX makes history with relaunch of a rocket

The launch of Samsung Galaxy S8 somewhat disappointed those who recently became Samsung converts, in search of a credible alternative to Apple’s iPhone, while watching the event live online: the changes were just evolutionary; it is neither revolutionary nor a game changer.

Taxing: the good, the bad and the ugly

Phillip Hammond, the Chancellor of Exchequer, experienced the worst crisis in his political career a few days ago, when he hiked the National Insurance payments for the self-employed. Not only did he incur the wrath of those who were directly on the firing line, but also upset a significant faction of his own party, the Conservative, that include some of the influential ministers in the government, and, perhaps Mrs Theresa May, the prime minister as well.

The Slow Death of British High Street: the need of a retail visionary

In 2009, when asked about the prospect of Apple iPhone in a TV interview, which had been introduced for the first time by Steve Jobs a few months earlier, Steve Ballmer, the then CEO of Microsoft, burst into an eerie laughter by quipping, “$500 dollars for a phone that hasn’t even got a keyboard, “while adding, “Are you kidding?” in the same breath.

The Hacking Menace in America and Strange Counter-measures

Politicians, regardless of their corresponding political allegiance to the Left or Right, naturally dream of leaving an indelible footprint of legacy in the sand of time, despite uttering the exact opposite while in power and trumpeting the rhetoric to the contrary. In this context, President Obama cannot be an exception in a solid global pattern, just because he led the Free World for almost eight years.

Christmas in Europe: collective excitement amidst evolving political and social realities

On the eve of Christmas, with the food stalls throughout Europe standing empty and the never-ending queues for last-minute shopping – and bargain hunting – in full swing, our seasonal tendency for indulging in collective fun once again stands out, while dwarfing more traditional aspects of the great event, that includes taking part in a mass at church.

Tragedy in Aleppo: the Western Flock in Limbo with no Sight of the Shepherd

The plight of columns of civilians, including the old, children and pregnant women, is heart-breaking: they have no shelter; food is scarce; medical needs almost non-existent. They are on a precarious march, solely determined by the sound of gunfire, the scale of rubble and rumors; they just pin their hope of survival on sheer luck, while knowing very well the world is impervious to their grievances this time.
