All told, we’re likely to see a few people returning to the office sometime by the end of this year or early next year. And that’s hoping that science has a fitting reply for the scourge unleashed by the Coronavirus — a vaccine if we’re being optimistic or at least some form of herd immunity. […]
Ashok Soota was 68 when he started Happiest Minds. He’d quit as the Chief Executive Officer of Mindtree — a company he co-founded and took public — in a huff. At the time, I wrote an article titled ‘Will Ashok Soota’s track-record rub off on Happiest Minds?’ for a financial daily. Mr. Soota’s track record […]
As we lived near Wigan in my mid-teens, I spent most school lunch breaks practising northern soul dance steps in the cloakroom. I’ve loved northern soul ever since and despite tough competition from the esoteric tracks that friends have unearthed over the years, my favourite is still one of the most popular anthems, Dobie Gray’s Out […]
Agency officials will be hoping to use the social media account to improve GCHQ’s image, which was damaged by the revelations of former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden in 2013, highlighting the extent to which organizations such as GCHQ, the NSA and the CIA undertake digital surveillance.

Kim is relying on his country’s massive military to assist in clean-up and recovery efforts. He called on personnel to “work with devotion for our great people, great Party and great state as befits the reliable revolutionary armed forces of the WPK and thus successfully complete their sacred combat mission” ahead of January’s gathering, or […]
It looks very much like “more Outer Worlds”, basically, which may not be a radical expansion, but it’s no bad thing either. Alice of Bee’s The Outer Worlds review actually convinced me to play it for a few hours last year, on the grounds that a perfectly alright, a-bit-safe-but-good lighthearted shooty RPG time was just […]
“This report reminds us that we destroy the planet at our peril — because it is our home. As humanity’s footprint expands into once-wild places, we’re devastating species populations. But we’re also exacerbating climate change and increasing the risk of zoonotic diseases like Covid-19,” WWF-US President and CEO Carter Roberts said in a statement.
“Even if we assume that half the needed vaccines can be transported by land, the air cargo industry will still face its largest single transport challenge ever. In planning their vaccine programmes, particularly in the developing world, governments must take very careful consideration of the limited air cargo capacity that is available at the moment,” […]
