After 30 years of darkness there is a revival of Pakistan's film industry. But I do hope it is not called by some silly name like Bollywood or Lollywood, because the films being produced are not just the Hollywood type; they include art films, biopics and docudramas, all of excellent quality and crowd-pullers to boot. Karachi is the centre of the revived film industry.

In a vivid description of the American and Western mindset Rafia Zakria in Aljazeera, summed up the game of Terrorism quoting the words of Serhat Ulaglu a Turkish academic at the Terrorism Conference held in the Uskudar municipality on the shores of the Bosphorus: "It is Western Governments which through their intermeddling and interference have created terror organisations like ISIL and Boko Haram". The columnist goes on to dilate on the Pakistani experience and concludes as follows: "Pakistan's experience of being hectored (bullied) into supporting the war on terror should give the Turks some pause.......In the words of Erdogan "The biggest failing on the war on terror was the proclivity (bad tendency) to define terrorism only according to the dictates of the United States." The conference urged the academics to develop a vocabulary of terrorism that goes beyond the binaries that view terrorism as a Muslim problem.
Wassily Wassilyevich Kandinsky (1866 - 1944) was an influential Russian painter and art theorist. He is credited with painting one of the first purely abstract works. His creation of abstract work followed a long period of development and maturation of intense thought based on his artistic experiences. According to him the forms and colours result not from simple, arbitrary idea-associations but from the painter's inner experience and Syed Muhammad Naqvi had done the same in his recent abstract paintings exhibited in a solo show at Artscene Galleries, Karachi. He brought forward his inner feelings of childhood when he saw fireworks at different occasions and got fascinated with the rainbow colours on the sky.
The advancement of technology has made social networking a vital part of our daily lives. Social networks also present unique marketing opportunities to accomplish business objectives. Different segments of social networks such as Face book, Tumbler, Instagarm, Twitter Whatsapp, Skype etc offer surfers to reach more people through social media, to speedup their businesses, to cut down distances by video conferences and to promote effective communication around the world.
The ground shakes, there's smoke rising on the horizon, police sirens wail and explosions echo through the streets. The view swings frantically to the right, tracking a sudden movement. As if the urban chaos wasn't bad enough, now Godzilla stomps around the corner. The giant lizard with its razor-sharp teeth is on you in a second and the two small screens in front of your eyes go black.
The city of Wuppertal in Germany's Rust Belt of old-era industrial towns has been chosen to test the driverless car of the future on regular city roads among pedestrians. Wuppertal is a far cry from California or Nevada, where Google has been putting its automated cars through their paces. The birthplace of Friedrich Engels, a father of Marxist political theory, and Friedrich Bayer, who founded the huge Bayer pharmaceuticals group, lies in what was once Germany's industrial heartland.
Having a mobile phone stolen is no reason to panic, say German experts who have put together a handy action list. But it's vital to act fast to secure phone numbers, addresses, personal notes and all other manner of intimate information and keep the upsetting surprises to a minimum.
