There are a few things I learned after this informative clip by Al Jazeera Youtube channel
- There is a conflict between Egypt and Ethiopia regarding the construction of the Grand Renaissance Dam
- Nile is the only major river in the world that flows from South to North
- A snapshot history regarding the rights to the water provided by the Nile
- “Start Here” offers amazing video clips on complicated issues around the world, especially in the Arabic countries
I will continue to read more about the Grand Renaissance Dam conflict. If you haven’t heard about it before, this clip is a pretty good start
America’s new favorite restaurants are Wawa, Sheetz and 7-Eleven. It’s interesting to see a shift in the behavior of consumers who prefer not walking around in big stores or driving to a fast food restaurant.
From the darling of fast fashion to bankruptcy: the tale of Forever 21’s demise. This should be the perfect case study for inadequate management, failing leadership and inability to adapt to the changing environment.

“[A city’s] best car plan is a bike plan,” he said. “Providing more space for walking and cycling leads not only to more people walking and cycling, it also makes space for people who really need to use their cars.”The Guardian

I came across a cool and quite encouraging video on reforestation in Ethiopia. As the climate change concern grows louder every day, it’s great to see such an effort from the African country
Reforestation doesn’t happen only in Ethiopia. According to Human Progress, 31% of the Earth is covered in forest. Moreover, rich areas such as UK, North Korea and Europe possess more forests than they did decades ago.
The article also said that developing countries such as China, India, Vietnam, Russia and Bangladesh have hit a critical mark of $4,500 GDP Per Capita (forest transition) and achieved net afforestation. Though I do doubt that my country has $4,500 GDP Per Capita or net afforestation, it’s a positive observation.
The news from Ethiopia is probably the first positive event since the horrific weekend. It brought smile to my face. Good things are done everywhere in the world and we need them more than ever.
