The Rohingya People: The Most Suffering People On Earth

The Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide was adopted by the United Nations 65 years ago in December of 1948.

Mac at 30: an epic product in personal computing

The famous television commercial, now known as ‘1984’, screened in Super Bowl XVIII on 22 January 1984, lasted just 60 seconds with a female athlete roaring into a massive screen, while smashing it with a sledgehammer; the destruction and the melee that followed, immediately led to a special announcement: “On January 24th, Apple Computer will introduce Macintosh. And you'll see why 1984 won't be like 1984."
