The new cold war is on. “Cold” war not as it used be between the super powers of the time but this war is “Cold” because it is taking place in Arctic Ocean between giant multi-national Shell and Greenpeace.

The media world is abuzz with the shocking news which is currently making the headlines everywhere, for the wrong reasons; the brutal killing of Cecil, a 13-year old lion, which also happened to be the most famous one in Zimbabwe.  A resident of the Hwange National Park which is Zimbabwe's largest game reserve, Cecil had achieved an iconic status as a major tourist attraction and was known to be friendly to visitors. His size and singular black mane made him recognisable and to top it all, he was monitored as part of an Oxford University study into lion conservation, according to BBC News sources.

Among the four candidates for the Labour leadership it may be said that perhaps, in terms of personality, Andy Burnham’s good looks and Yvette Cooper’s exuberance may carry some weight but, together with the nonplus Liz Kendall, they did not seem convincing during the television debate in June last. They did not exude the same sincerity and confidence that naturally came out of Jeremy Corbyn who looked more mature and sincere in his delivery, a trait that is causing concern to some party members and more so to the political foes.

On Tuesday of last week, when in the concluding remark of my address to the participants of the workshop organised by the Nursing Association on the theme Enhancing Customer Care in the Health Service, I quoted a ‘page of wisdom’ from the Life of former President Abdul Kalam of India, it did not for a second cross my mind that less than a week later we would receive the sad, shocking and sudden news of his untimely demise, that has not only put into mourning the entire Indian population but saddened people across the world, especially those who have had the privilege of meeting him or knowing him at close range.

India's icon, Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam, hailed from a very modest social background. He was the son of a boat-owner. As a boy he contributed to his family income by selling newspapers in Rameswaram, a south Indian town. After having served as chief scientific advisor to the Prime Minister of India, he was eventually elevated to become the 11th President of India from 2002-2007. He was a man of consensus and he endeared himself to all the citizens of his country.

After long months of laborious negotiations, the birth of a nuclear deal between Iran and the P5+1 is being received with mixed feelings. It is no secret that the BRICS are hell bent to redraw the international architecture to end a unipolar world led by the US. After a long drawn war in the Middle East and Afghanistan at the cost of $6trillion, the US is bleeding and feels incapable of talking on Russia, China, Iran, and the Islamic State simultaneously.

Decades of intellectual atheism peaked with Richard Dawkins' 2006 book 'The God Delusion'. The pro-evolutionary biologist argued that the creationist idea of a universal deity behind the design of the Universe is undermining the education of 'proven scientific facts' such as the evolution of species. His point was that Creationism is a metaphysical philosophy which has passed its purpose of helping us understand our place in the Universe. Dawkins, considered 'the most famous atheist alive', recently mentioned that while evolutionary Biology has 'superseded' Creationism, the Multiverse theory of physicist Stephen Hawking is now delivering the coup de grâce. Propounding how an almost infinite number of universes coexisted simultaneously, Stephen Hawking wrote in his 2010 book 'The Grand Design' that our Universe is one in billions, having the suitable physical laws and conditions for life, thereby 'logically' resulting in its emergence: a matter of cosmological randomness on an unimaginable scale of repetition. Stephen Hawking has become the Charles Darwin of Physics and Cosmology.

Due to an unusually windy day, wind farms in Denmark managed to produce 140 per cent of the country's electricity needs. 80 per cent of the surplus power was shared between Germany and Norway, with Sweden taking the 20 per cent left over.

Due to an unusually windy day, wind farms in Denmark managed to produce 140 per cent of the country's electricity needs. 80 per cent of the surplus power was shared between Germany and Norway, with Sweden taking the 20 per cent left over. The figures were noticed by the paper on energinet.dk, a site which shows the power output of Denmark's wind farms in real-time. Oliver Joy, spokesman for the European Wind Energy Association, said: "It shows that a world powered 100 per cent by renewable energy is no fantasy."

Barely six months ago, on 25 January 2015, the left-wing party Syriza in Greece swept to power on a wave of anti-austerity popular support. The Greeks had had enough of the austerity measures imposed upon them by the Troïka (the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund). These ludicrous “structural adjustment plans” plunged them further into recession and widespread poverty while their country was increasingly losing its sovereignty and fast becoming the private property of a small group of Euro-creditors and “banksters”.

For more than 2 decades we have been struggling for a complete ban of asbestos in Mauritius.  In 1999, one of our members namely Mr. Claude Marguerite died of a mesothelioma.  We applied before the Supreme Court to exhume the corpse and to proceed with an asbestos fibre count in the lungs of late Comrade Marguerite.  At that time we benefited from the support of Prof. Hasselton from Manchester University for the count.  We also benefited from the support of Dr. Pravin Oogarah, a specialist in cancer, and the former student of Prof. Hasselton.

Take a minute to think of your dream pop band set up and what it would consist of. Vocals? Backing Vocals? Drums? Guitar? Bass? Maybe a synthesiser? Was I close? Well why not a Violin? Maybe a brass section or Double Bass? Surely these instruments are worthy of being in a pop band? From where I stand, I can see a lack of variety in our modern music when it comes to orchestration. Why do we not use instruments that have served us in the Classical and Jazz field for so long?

The Global Business Sector (“GBS”), previously known as the “offshore” sector, is arguably an important pillar of the Mauritian economy. The GBS together with the banking and insurance sectors constitute the Financial Services Sector (FSS). According to a study by the Human Resource Development Council (HRDC) issued in May 2012, the contribution of the FSS to the Mauritian economy reached 10.1% of GDP in 2011 and the number of employees in the FSS was estimated at 13,500 in 2011 and was expected to reach 17,500 by 2015.

The tradition of Iftaar (fast-breaking) must surely rank as one of the world’s greatest social events of people coming together.  During the month of Ramadan, Muslims fast, pray and celebrate together while also trying to be thoughtful and generous to friends and family, but especially to the needy and poor.  It is a month of warmth, compassion and generosity.  Notwithstanding the intense spiritual values embodied by Ramadan, it is the popular tempo, the folklore and cultural traditions, marked by the vibrant atmosphere of Iftaar that mostly attract the attention of the outside public.

Seven Fountains, Princeton, Hot Rocket, Diamond Light, Tembot et Roventas sont les chevaux que nous avions repérés la dernière fois. Seven Fountains avait démontré un bon pas, mais s’était montré ardent durant la majeure partie du parcours. Arrivé à la dernière courbe, il s’était retrouvé complètement à l’extérieur et avait donné l’impression de pouvoir mieux conclure s’il avait été piloté avec plus de confiance.
