New Zealand orders top-level inquiry into mosque massacres!


  • Ardern ruled out re-introducing the death penalty for accused gunman.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Monday ordered an independent judicial inquiry into the Christchurch mosque attacks, asking whether police and intelligence services could have prevented the March 15 attack.

Ardern said a royal commission - the most powerful judicial probe available under New Zealand law - was needed to find out how a single gunman was able to kill 50 people in an attack that shocked the world.

"It is important that no stone is left unturned to get to how this act of terrorism occurred and how we could have stopped it," she told reporters.

Sheikh Mohammed, Kenya president congratulate teacher on $1 million Dubai prize win!

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, gave a special video message after he was announced as winner - calling him an inspiration for all of Africa:
  • Both leaders had an inspiring message for Peter Tabichi.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, congratulated Kenyan teacher, Peter Tabichi, on winning the prestigious $1 million Global Teacher Prize in Dubai on Sunday.

With Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, as this year's chief guest at the glitzy ceremony, Sheikh Mohammed tweeted this shortly after Peter's name was announced:

'Congratulations to @petertabichi from Kenya for winning the Varkey Global @TeacherPrize . Teachers are the pioneers of development and the true change makers.'



Mueller report does not have proof of Trump crimes!


  • Mueller said he would leave it to the attorney general to decide whether a crime was committed.
US Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election did not find that President Donald Trump committed a crime but also does not exonerate him, according to a summary of Mueller's findings released on Sunday.

Mueller, who spent nearly two years investigating allegations that Russia meddled in the 2016 election to help Trump defeat his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, also found no evidence that any member of Trump's election campaign conspired with Russia during the election.

Flying for first time, Kenyan wins $1 million Global Teacher Prize!


  • 10 teachers from all over the world were shortlisted from a staggering 10,000 entries.
A teacher from a remote, poverty-ridden, village in Kenya, Peter Tabichi, was announced as the world's best teacher and was awarded $1million for his outstanding work with his students.

Tabichi was this year's winner of Dubai's Global Teacher Prize by the Varkey Foundation, which aims to highlight the importance of the teaching profession.


How to correct someone without offending them!

  • If you must tell someone they're wrong, take all the care you can to not sound condescending or pompous.
"I'm smart, you're dumb; I'm big, you're little; I'm right, you're wrong, and there's nothing you can do about it," said Danny DeVito as Harry Wormwood in the movie Matilda. He played Matilda's (Mara Wilson) dad in the 1996 movie based on Roald Dahl's book by the same title. That's one way of telling someone they're wrong - not the most politically correct way, though. And definitely not worth a shot in today's workplace where the manager-subordinate relationship has evolved into one of respectful friendship.

Beware: Free Wi-Fi at coffee shop can put you in soup!


  • Public Wi-Fi in India has the ability to capture 40 million new connected users by 2019.
For professionals and tourists alike, connecting to a public Wi-Fi is a boon keeping the high roaming data cost in mind. But connecting to any available free network can easily expose your data to hackers who are waiting for you to log into.

Not just abroad, signing frequently into free Internet at hotels, coffee shops, conferences or shopping malls is equally dangerous, especially if there is lack of multi-layered security and encryption.

According to a recent report by Google and global research firm Analysys Mason, public Wi-Fi in India has the ability to capture 40 million new connected users by 2019, resulting in at least $20 billion being added to the country's GDP.
