Millions of tourists travel to Berlin each year with many hoping to discover traces of the city's divided past. The Berlin Wall that divided the city for almost three decades fell 25 years ago but there are still some sections remaining.

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 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.
