Renowned educationist Anita Ghulamali died on Friday August 8. Ever ready to support any good campaign for the uplift of Pakistani women and children, she was passionately committed to providing quality education to people. Her ideas were unusual, but always matter-of-fact and realistic, such as her appeal to the affluent class to adopt a school. She was not an idealist, which is the reason she could work in the government of Sindh. She was aware that only government has the wherewithal to bring change.

The Panama Canal celebrated its centennial Friday, but it isn't looking back as much as its looking forward. The waterway that officially opened on August 15, 1914, when the canal's first pilot made the first official transit of the canal, is in the midst of a construction project on a third set of locks and has an eye on further updates needed to maintain its status as a crucial instrument in world trade.
He may be more than a century old but Hafeezullah still goes to work every day. With the aid of a cane, the wizened white-bearded centenarian tends to his fields in Pakistan's hauntingly beautiful Neelum Valley just as he did when Britain still ruled this part of the world.
Naveed Sadiq wants the viewer to find an interpretation of his/her own as the viewer is a free thinker and must incorporate his/her own impressions with what the artist has put before them. The artworks of the artist in a solo exhibition titled "Tamasha Merey Aagey" at Koel Gallery, Karachi are basically his ideas taking shape of images in his paintings thus reflecting his mind and life experiences.
When 61-year old Mercy Joshua was young, the vast forests of south-eastern Kenya teemed with wildlife, but decades of unchecked deforestation by locals have devastated the land. She watched forests dwindle and rivers dry up across her homeland of Kasigau - a semi-arid savanna grassland dotted with shrubs, woodland and small rugged hills - as people cut down the trees to scratch a living by selling them for firewood. But now, after decades of degradation, a local project has found a way to preserve the forests and support the community by getting international companies to pay to plant trees.
Grey is the coming colour on European floors, and as a critic you can't help thinking "mousey," the word used to describe inconspicuous people, from a mouse's grey, nondescript colour. You might say grey concrete walls and surfaces generate a hard, uncomfortable atmosphere. That's especially the case in Europe's winters if the weather is wet and cold and everything looks grey and dull.
Swipe to the left or right or up and down - these are gestures that every smartphone owner knows. Other gestures for use on touchscreens or laptop touchpads tend to be known only to advanced users. The one finger tips and swipe: The one finger movement is the mother of all gestures for touchscreens. "With one finger an app is generally started," says Roland Stehle.
