The Transit of Mercury

On Monday, the shadow of Mercury, the innermost planet of our Solar System, will appear to be passing across the Sun as a dot in a process known as the transit of Mercury. It will begin at 11:12GMT and last for over 7 hours before dying down at 18:42GMT.

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.

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.

President Obama in Cuba

Today, President Obama is scheduled to land in Havana, the capitol of Cuba, while making history on many fronts while defying the conventional political wisdom that rules out such an ideologically-toxic event, especially in the last few months left in one’s presidency. It is the first trip of its kind for a sitting president to make in almost 90 years – a very historic event, indeed.

Donald Trump: the unstoppable march of a RINO

If Donald Trump, the Republican nomination hopeful of the GOP – Grand Old Party – can maintain the momentum that he has been steadily building up in the past few months, on Super Tuesday, when more states vote and more delegates are at stake than any other day in the campaign of the US presidential primaries, his bumpy ride towards the pinnacle of the Republican political career seems to be unstoppable by any mechanism of conventional political wisdom.
