Sunday Roundup on Sudan and South Kordofan

When will international community take action? This is the question asked on Twitter by Susan Morgan, co-founder and the Director of Communications for Investors Against Genocide (I mention them here). Many people are asking the same question right now. I wrote many times about #Sudan and #Darfur and I’m glad I could, for over two decades now (since ... More
Sunday Roundup: Bahrain, Sudan, Physics…

The Bahrain Grand Prix will not go ahead. Many concerned people such as #Nicholas Kristof and Kenneth Roth tweeted this week about the upcoming Formula One Grand Prix expected to take place next October in Bahrain. In a post published on Foreign Policy we can read: ‘On Friday, the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile, the governing body for ... More
Sunday Roundup: Abyei, Ai Weiwei, Artmaking…

U.N. probes absences amid Sudan clashes. Since Northern Sudanese forces seized Abyei, many rightfully think northern and southern fighting over Abyei could reignite a full blown war in #Sudan. And we thought U.N. peacekeepers in Sudan would protect the people of Abyei from the attacks; apparently we were wrong. According to Reuters: ‘U.N. peacekeepers ... More
Sunday Roundup: Sudan, particles, Gil Scott-Heron

New Visual Evidence of Government of Sudan War Crimes in Abyei. Here we are, again. Al-Bashir is back, alive and kicking. Hard. Again.

Sunday Roundup: Unhappy China, JPMorgan Chase, Jal

It’s about being ‘happy’ or ‘unhappy’. Support of #Ai Weiwei makes #China “unhappy”. Reported by Yahoo News, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said: ‘The Chinese people also feel baffled — why do some people in some countries treat a crime suspect as a hero? […] The Chinese people are ... More
Sunday Roundup: Osama Bin Laden, Food crisis, Africa

Osama Bin Laden is dead. Al-Qaeda founder and leader died last Sunday in his Pakistan hideout at the hands of Navy SEALs. The mastermind behind the worst-ever terrorist attack on U.S. soil is no more. Although Bin Laden’s death summoned joy for good reasons, it was only for a short time. Eric Schmitt explains: Bin Laden’s Death Doesn’t Mean the ... More
Sunday Roundup: Free Revok, Chernobyl, ATA-SETI…

For once (kind of) I will start with some graffiti news. This may not be the biggest news of the week for most of you but it is for any #Graffiti art fan. ‘Revok, one of Los Angeles’ best known graffiti writers, was arrested as he prepared to board a plane to Ireland at Los Angeles International Airport, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s ...

Sunday Roundup: Portal 2, Tim Hetherington, MOCA…

Portal 2 is out! This game is awesome and I think I should write an entire blog post about it. Seriously. It’s clever and fun, even CNN says so! ‘The story is fantastic, and the writing and dialogue remain one of the cornerstones to this series. GLaDOS’s voice is dripping with sarcasm and malice even as her tone remains soothing and calm. ... More
Sunday Roundup: Godard, Pi, Revok, Jon Burgerman

Last week I published my first ‘Sunday Roundup’ post, here comes the second one. The selection of news made by the Sama Team for their weekly Friday Digest on the Sama Gazette is always interesting and I would have also selected several of the articles they have chosen like Obama set to appoint America’s first special envoy to Burma, French ...
