Recent events in Karachi illustrate that the lack of managing water as a vital capital can have a violent impact on society, much more than the lack of finance capital. Mismanagement of water as a capital should be a health warning of the current and future state of affairs.We do not witness the same social rage and political fighting when there is shortage of financial capital in the capital markets - disruptive as they maybe with the likes of the Occupy movement in London and the US that began in 2011.

There are two types of vehicles which you see everywhere, rushing at break-neck speed, siren screaming, lurching from one traffic lane into another, disregarding traffic signals. One is the police car, in service of the VIPs or themselves, the other is the ambulance taking some distressed soul to hospital. Same style driving but morally so different. Other drivers curse the police but usually utter a prayer for the patient in the ambulance. The police has no business inconveniencing other drivers on the road. They make indiscriminate use of the siren as a means of clearing the way for there vehicle. The police car siren is officially to be sounded only when the police is chasing criminals. But that is one time you do not hear the siren or see the police at the crime scene. You see the ambulance.
Scientists are about to embark on the biggest search yet for alien life, sweeping the skies for signals of civilizations beyond our solar system with $100 million from a Russian billionaire and the backing of physicist Stephen Hawking.

Staff at the Prado, Spain's top art museum, usually prevent visitors from touching its priceless treasures. But on a recent morning, with their blessing, Jose Pedro Gonzalez, 56, slowly ran his fingers over a copy of one of 15th century master Diego de Velazquez's most famous paintings, "Apollo in the Forge of Vulcan". His hands ran back and forth over the depiction of the god Apollo wearing a laurel crown, tracing the edges of the garment.
When asked to imagine the future of transportation, most might draw a car of the future, perhaps solar powered and autonomously driven. For a select few the way we'll move ourselves across the world tomorrow is in a steel tube at speeds of almost 800mph. This was originally the brainchild of billionaire US entrepreneur Elon Musk, who envisioned being able to whisk passengers between San Francisco and Los Angeles in under half an hour.
Reading the news. Watching a video. Sending an email. Listening to music. A lot of the activities one enjoys on a computer that used to require installation of a special programme can now be performed directly in the browser with a new breed of tools called web apps. Ever more functions seem to be becoming available as web apps, from word processing to photo editing, making the need for separately installed programmes less necessary every day.
