Consequences of Brexit on European (Dis)Union

We will be in the unchartered waters next week; with the Brexit, the British referendum that determines whether Britain should stay in the European Union or not – just less than a week away, and the very nation being rattled to the core by the brutal murder of an elected member of parliament in broad daylight, uncertainty on many fronts has already started emerging at an alarming rate in proportion to the rising emotions inside both camps.

Donald Trump’s Unstoppable March towards the White House

Having clinched the Republican nomination for the forthcoming presidential election in November, Donald Trump has set his sight firmly on the ultimate political trophy – the White House.

Google Bashing: a synonym for a global boomerang?

Hardly a week goes by without some form of news, branding Google, the search giant, as a law breaker, especially in non-English speaking Europe. The catalog of accusations that range from killing privacy to monopolizing search, seem to be giving Google bashers a free passage to moral high ground with a brief stop-over at short-lived stardom. In the long run, however, this intensely-fashionable pursuit may horribly backfire, while leaving billions of regular users in a very damaging lurch.

Global Challenges in Generating Electricity

Sri Lanka, which recently went through one of the worst power crises in the living memory, may be exploring the possibility of averting a similar scenario in the future, along with a feasible plan in order to deal with the growing demand for electricity, in proportion to the expansion of the realm of new recipients and the higher consumption tendencies of the existing customers.

NATO in Trouble! Why do Americans think it is a relic from the past?

Donald Trump, the GOP favourite for the forthcoming presidential election in the US, stirred up yet another political storm recently, while questioning the relevance of NATO – North Atlantic Treaty Organization – in a Post-Cold-War era, on the grounds of ballooning American financial support in order to hold the alliance together.

Apple’s Latest iPhone: small is beautiful appeal to be tested in the coming months

The Team Apple unveiled a range of products on Tuesday with a heavy focus on its star product, the iPhone, in a fairly low-key event – a far cry from previous Apple events; among many thing that were conspicuously absent, the lack of excitement rolled up the list in proportion to the subdued reaction from the strictly-selected audience.
