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.

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.

(Coco)Nut Cracking: the good, the bad and the ugly

During the last two weeks, we had been witnessing a plethora of reports that said about an highly-organized – and highly-charged - event that took place at a temple in a small isle in the southern Sri Lanka, where a group of politicians and their loyalists cracked coconuts in order to invoke the wrath of a special deity, whose earthly seat happens to be this particular place of worship, surrounded by the placid sea.

The Phenomena of Trump and Sanders: personification of voter anger and disillusionment

Both Donald J Trump and Bernie Sanders are riding on two diverging waves of popularity while tearing up the conventional book of western politics into pieces. The casualties, caught up in the trail of destruction, include the ‘establishment candidates’ of the respective parties, big-time donors, investment banks and above all the media, which was laid bare to its core to be exposed along with the questionable interest they represent.

Iowa Primary Polls: Republican Victory Evolves into Controversy

No sooner had political pundits across both sides of the divide flocked together to write down the political obituary of Donald J Trump in the aftermath of his defeat at the hands of Ted Cruz, the darling of evangelists of the American public, than the former saw an opportunity belittle the victory of the latter on the grounds of what he called electoral fraud.

Turning Trump into Triumph: ‘I’ and ‘h’ may come from Iowa and (New) Hampshire

As things stand in the race for the presidential nominee of the Republican Party, Donald J Trump, as Mr Trump wants himself to be known, seems to be enjoying an unassailable lead over his rivals. His closest rival, meanwhile, the heavily-animated, Canadian-born Ted Cruz seems to be struggling to keep pace with the former, despite the impressive oratory at his disposal – after running short of new ideas.

Oil Price Crash: $10 a barrel is no longer consumers’ wishful thinking

Up until extreme rationalists started looking down on them, there had been folks in Wales, Great Britain, who used to believe that the sound of an owl amongst their houses was a harbinger of an unmarried woman losing her virginity in the village.
