The world is watching you Mr.Trump, and reacting to your politics of divisiveness.

Juli Briskman gave the middle finger to Donald Trump as his motorcade passed her on her bike in Sterling, Virginia last Friday (Oct. 28). A photo taken from behind by AFP photographer Brendan Smialowski shows Briskman’s impromptu protest as black Secret Service SUVs maneuver around her bike. The single image quickly took on a life…

In 2010, almost every new billion dollar company that entered the market called US or Europe home. Times are changing. China is now closing the gap with the US (and rocketed past Europe in 2015) when it comes to minting new $1 billion startups, reports the investment advisory firm Scenic Advisement which analyzed financing data…

Sealed with a kiss?

James Corden has been accused of “normalising” fascism after he kissed former White House press secretary Sean Spicer at the Emmys. The former White House official made a surprise appearance during the prestigious TV ceremony last night to proclaim that the viewing figures would be at an all time high – making fun of his…

College textbooks are going the way of Netflix — Quartz I strongly suspect that even physical College and University campuses will morph into small chat facilities needed only for papers, research, counselling, and theses presentations. Textbooks will disappear as they are now, and be online only, as more students and faculty purchase and use iPads and iPhones. Laptops and desktops will be a thing of the past.

This is the second in The Vanishing University, a four-part series exploring the tech-driven future of higher education in America. Here is part one. A new copy of Glenn Hubbard and Tony O’Brien’s widely used introductory economics textbook costs more than some smartphones. The phone can send you to any part of the web and…

I strongly suspect Comey will be back, but not in this circus of a WH Administration.

(WASHINGTON) — Despite White House claims to the contrary, fired FBI Director James Comey was highly respected and trusted within the bureau during his nearly four-year tenure, according to internal survey results released Wednesday. The data detailing bureau attitudes about its leader contradict White House assertions that Comey, fired by President Donald Trump in May,…
