China splits the internet while the U.S. dithers

There are few stories as important right now as the internet being ripped asunder by the increasing animosity between the U.S. and China. Eric Schmidt, the former chairman of Alphabet, said last week at a private event in San Francisco that “I think the most likely scenario now is not a splintering, but rather a bifurcation into a Chinese-led internet and a non-Chinese internet led by America.” He should know: Alphabet and its Google subsidiary are on the front lines of that split, experiencing ...

With the return to grocery store shopping comes cooler temperatures, and I'm far less reliant on season products. That's when new cookbooks, magazines, and websites offer bountiful ideas. Today I have two short reviews of cookbooks written by long-tim...

Build a wall across the Sahara? That's crazy – but someone still did it

Donald Trump was widely ridiculed earlier this week for suggesting that Spain emulate his $25bn dream for the US-Mexico border and “build a wall” across the Sahara desert. At 1,700 miles (2,700km) the Morocco Western Sahara wall, known as the Berm, is about 250 miles shorter than the US-Mexican border. Morocco has occupied its southern neighbour Western Sahara since 1975, when Spain, the colonial power, withdrew, and the north African country fought a 15-year war with the Polisario Front, the ...

Luis Garcia claims Cristiano Ronaldo exit may be blessing for Real Madrid

Looking at the positives rather than the negatives Former Spain ace Luis Garcia has suggested that Cristiano Ronaldo’s Bernabeu exit could actually be a blessing in disguise for the club. Ronaldo left the club for Juventus over the summer and there now looks to be a completely different dynamic in Madrid.
