Military ruler General Ziaul Haq departed this world more than 26 years ago, but that supreme hypocrite's ghost continues to haunt almost every sphere of our national life. Using religion to seek validation of his power grab, he sowed seeds of so many problems this society faces today, obvious among them militancy, sectarian terrorism, religious intolerance, and decline of educational standards. To keep his opponents out of the Majlis-e-Shoora (Parliament) he also inserted Articles 62 and 63 in the Constitution, laying down qualifications and disqualifications for membership of Parliament.

Copyright law does not protect ideas or other no-expressive elements of a work. The law protects only the elements of work that are considered as creative expressions such as a particular way an author expresses an idea. For example, a novel is a creative work of art, which is fixed in a manuscript, and is subsequently published. The original expression used in the novel is protected by copyright, but ideas in novel are not subject to protection. It is very simple to state in this manner but its practical application is difficult.
Abbas Yusef points wistfully towards his olive trees, which are bearing their annual fruit. Yet again, the 70-year-old Palestinian farmer will be unable to make the autumn harvest. Yusef's olive groves lie on land either side of an Israeli settlement in the northern occupied West Bank. For years, he has been denied access by the army, and the settlers have ploughed it, uprooting many of his trees.

A two-day International Investment Conference was held in Islamabad on October 27-28. The conference was organised by the Board of Investment (BoI) with an objective to presenting to the world investment opportunities in Pakistan with a focus on energy sector, mines and minerals and privatisation of public-sector entities (PSEs).
Investors stung by plunging oil prices and energy stocks may find relief right around the corner: A Republican-led US Senate could well jump-start energy-friendly policies that would shore up the beaten-down sector. Political odds-makers say Republicans should win the Senate in next week's mid-term elections. Although major reforms on big issues like taxes or immigration are thought unlikely, GOP control of Congress could see laws advanced in a handful of areas, with energy topping the list.
Mountains of discarded remote controls litter the warehouse floor. In a dimly-lit room, women on plastic stools pry open the devices, as if shucking oysters, to retrieve the circuitry inside. In a narrow alley a few blocks over, a father and son from a distant province wash microchips in plastic buckets. Men haul old telephones and computer keyboards by the shovelful off a truck. Some items will be refurbished and resold, others will be stripped for components or materials such as copper or gold.
