Monument Valley is a childhood remembrance, a journey, a particular relationship with pop art, a Wim Wenders film and a literally literary attempt. In Monument Valley, JFrançois Chénin brings the pictorial space nearer to the pop art of big American spaces. The graphical intentions of the American paintings of the 1950′s and 70’s incorporate this natural space, which hesitates between the earth and the sky. From it also flows an…

    29 Sep 2011 | 6:20 am
    Recession, contrary to common opinion, is a needed part of the economy cycle and more importantly for sustaining our civilization.Booms while great, do have downsides. No need for me to write on the upsides of a boom since they're well known and even fantasized! So to the upsides of a recession:1. Helps the 'humanity' aspect. During extended booms, its easy for individuals to became part of a rat race ie who has the biggest car, the exotic summer vacation etc etc. Recessions enable individuals to be grateful for what they took for granted. It helps reset the human clock on being content.2.

While its nice to have a lot of developers, the end quality remains elusive. So if you're thinking about picking up Rails, ask yourself this:Are you in it for the money or are you in it for the passion?If you're for the former, all the best to you, I really dont have much to say after that. If you're the latter, then I suggest you strategize before becoming a code monkey, a list I'd recommend is:1. Read the…

    By Saad Hafiz The recent murder of Dr Mohammad Shakil Auj, the dean of Islamic Studies at the University of Karachi, is yet another atrocity in Pakistan’s seemingly unending sectarian conflict. Apparently, Dr Auj, known for his liberal religious views, was targeted for speaking out against sectarian killings. Since the 1980s, the country has been wracked by violence, mostly perpetrated by Sunni extremist groups against the Shia minority. It is important to mention that the Shias are not the only sect facing violence at the hands of extremists and terrorists in Pakistan. The Ahmedi…

    Badin – Veteran politician Mumtaz Bhutto has announced to quit Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and indications are that he will join Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). Speaking to media on Wednesday, Bhutto said PML-N’s politics in Sindh has been practically over and the Parliament which was standing behind Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is now also demanding mid-term polls. Bhutto, who had merged his Sindh National Front party with PML-N in May 2012, said he will make decision about joining PTI after conversing with his mates. He said PML-N created such circumstances which prompted him to…

Diego Simeone’s men, who finished last season’s Champions League after being beaten by city rivals Real Madrid in the final, suffered 3-2 loss at the hands of Greek champions Olympiakos in their this season’s Group A-opener a fortnight ago. And now, the Spanish champions cannot afford second straight defeat as it would diminish their chances of progressing beyond the group stage. Atleti men have looked in positive domestic…

    One of the most important things that Musharraf did during his era was giving the media its much needed freedom. One of the reasons I believe this took so long was because, for most of our history, we have been under dictatorial rule and dictators generally do not like people pointing fingers at them or being held to account. The irony however, is that media was given freedom in Pakistan by a dictator.

  • No, we are not being paid to attend the Dharnas Mr. Sharif!

    29 Sep 2014 | 6:11 am
    A few days ago, one of the PML (N) MNA’s categorically said that people are being paid 400-500 PKR to attend the sit-ins organized by PTI and PAT. There was however, no proof for this. I don’t really know about the PAT rally, but it is evident that the people that are there to support PTI are not being paid. Politicians have used this trick for a long time now where they pay people to attend their self-serving rallies or disrupt law and order (remember Gullu Butt?). This is why they think that people will believe it when they say that PTI is paying people to attend the sit-ins and jalsas.

    29 Sep 2014 | 6:03 am
    Everyone has by now heard of the Saeed Ajmal ban. Yes, even my first reaction was ‘Oh! Common! Is this all that the BCCI is doing?!’ They are scared of a challenge. But then I thought, maybe there is an actual issue. There are plenty of off-spinners called for their action; even Ajmal was a few years back. No doubt this is a big blow to the Pakistan cricket team because Saeed Ajmal is not just the best bowler in the team, but has consistently been one of the top bowlers in all three formats of the game for years now. However, in my opinion, it is also very possible that the new…

    Mr. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is taking his political career to the next level. He can now be seen issuing official party statements (most of which we don’t need or care about), he can also be seen addressing small gatherings, and just last week he went around visiting the flood affected people to gather political points, just like his father did a few years back and his grandfather did quite a few years back. Well, this is not unusual for the children of our politicians who aspire to continue their family’s legacy; a statement here a comment there. In fact, I was wondering why Bilawal was…
