Image"There is certainly no necessity that this increasingly reflexive transmission of cultural traditions be associated with subject centred reason and future oriented historical consciousness. To the extent that we become aware of the inter-subjective constitution of freedom, the possessive individualist illusion of autonomy as self ownership disintegrates." Jurgen Habermas, from the book" Between facts and norms".

Three pupils were killed and four others injured in an explosion inside a classroom for youngsters at a seminary in Orangi Town last Monday. Among the injured, seven-year-old Ismail and his brother Ibrahim, aged nine, were fighting for their lives in the ICU of a hospital at the time I am writing this piece. Both boys had head injuries.
The Internet may feel like it's everywhere, but large pockets of sky, swathes of land and most of the oceans are still beyond a signal's reach. Three decades after the first cellphone went on sale - the $4,000 Motorola DynaTAC 8000X "Brick" - half the world remains unconnected. For some it costs too much, but up to a fifth of the population, or some 1.4 billion people, live where "the basic network infrastructure has yet to be built," according to a Facebook white paper last month.
Slluring images documenting cultural and historical aspects of women's life by Mehtab Ali at Art Citi Gallery, Karachi are a delight for art lover Karachiites. Mehtab's boldly rendered glamorous women have become his signature style but in his new series of paintings he introduces strength of horses with his silent women figures.
The rise of superbugs, stoked by misuse of antibiotics and shoddy hospital hygiene, is enabling long-treatable diseases to once again become killers, the World Health Organisation warned on Wednesday. In a hard-hitting study of antimicrobial resistance - when bacteria adapt so that existing drugs no longer beat them - the UN health agency said the issue was a global emergency and urged all players to wake up.
Cutting boards used to prepare raw poultry may be an important source of drug-resistant bacteria in hospital kitchens and private homes, according to a new study. The more bacteria are exposed to antibiotics, the higher the chance they will develop resistance to the drugs.
Novelist Robert Lautner chronicles the adventures of a young boy and the impact of the invention of Samuel Colt's revolving handgun in "Road to Reckoning," a coming-of-age tale set during the great depression of the 1830s. Lautner's story follows 12-year-old Thomas Walker as he tries to make it home to New York after losing his father on a sales trip to market the first line of Colt Paterson revolvers.
