Op-Ed: What does selling $110bn of arms to Saudi Arabia really mean?

Riyadh - Donald Trump has announced a $110bn deal with Saudi Arabia for new military systems. The Obama administration sold $115bn to the Saudis in its term of office. The question for analysts, however, is about the effects of the sales on the region.

Op-Ed: Will Apple's new stores model save dying retail space?

Cupertino - Apple are re-purposing their stores as learning centres, as well as retail outlets. If this approach can restart retail spaces, as retailers disappear, it might save a lot of money for commercial property investors.

Op-Ed: Flying cars and no practical thinking: The craze gets busy

Tokyo - If a Japanese company succeeds in its bid to deliver its SkyDrive flying cars, (basically drones with cabins), for the 2018 Olympics it’ll be a major sales pitch for the cars. It’s the total lack of thinking which makes flying cars a problem.

Op-Ed: Ransomware — Why so helpless? Why is security so useless?

Sydney - Ransomware is a plague. It’s everywhere, and it’s not new. Security industries have been aware of it for many years, and yet it’s still viable? Why is a well-known method of hijacking computers still possible?

Op-Ed: Cannabis ‘reverses brain aging, improves memory’: New study

Jerusalem - For decades, the War on Weed has emphasized health risks. For the last 20 years, nothing but health positives have been discovered. A new study throws a light on both fake news of the past and fabulous science of the future.

Op-Ed: Japan to buy Tomahawk missiles? Good idea, in many ways

Tokyo - The somewhat startling information that Japan wants to buy Tomahawk missiles has created a flurry of speculation in military circles. It might also be an Off switch for a wider conflict.

Op-Ed: Should Amazon drop Breitbart? Yes, for market reasons, too

Washington - The much-touted idea of Amazon dropping Breitbart, as may be expected, is pretty much based on market perceptions in the media. The practical business values, however, may be more accurate long term values as a basis for assessment.

Op-Ed: Unprofessional White House still can’t spell or say 'Turnbull'

Sydney - Seems the White House has a problem with the name of the Australian Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull. Like infantile name calling in grade school, the new spellings and pronunciations are truly banal. And unprofessional.

Op-Ed: Trumpcare, or free range concentration camps?

Washington - The parasitic orgy/ free range concentration camp which is Trumpcare has just drastically redefined access to health care. This level of mismanagement, if it becomes law, will be a true horror story in a sector made of horror stories.

Op-Ed: China’s carriers: A catalyst for trouble?

Sydney - China’s first domestically built carrier is believed to be the beginning of a major drive by the Chinese navy to deliver a major global presence and projection of power. The problems could start a lot closer to home.

Op-Ed: 3D printing a Martian colony? It’s doable, and there’s more

Sydney - 3D printing was a sort of tech novelty for about three seconds until it went mainstream. Even the least technically knowledgeable could understand the values. Now, thanks to Northwestern University, space just got a bit more accessible.

Op-Ed: The revolution against ignorance has begun: March for Science

Sydney - It is bizarre to think, that in a world literally drenched in science, that science is a pariah in culture and government. People whose views on global warming would fail high school science are running countries.

Op-Ed: Time to take Kangoo Jumps boots seriously? Yes, for your health.

Sydney - The first “bouncing” boots were basically strong rubber bands under shoes. They’ve changed a lot. The new “revelation” is that these boots could also be a unintentional revolution in human health.

New book about Huntington's Disease: 'Watching Their Dance' Special

Los Angeles - A new book, Watching Their Dance, by Therese Crutcher-Marin will add a lot of weight to the campaign against Huntington’s Disease. This book is from the front lines of those who've lived with Huntington's and is not to be missed.

Trump vs oxygen? The new take on Trump’s America Special

Toronto - When Donald Trump “saved” the coal industry, there was a collective groan from environmentalists. Another regressive, “pollute everything” policy? There’s another issue here, and it’s all about the air we breathe.

Op-Ed: Britain would go to war over Gibraltar? You’re kidding?

Gibraltar - A senior Tory, Michael Howard, a former party leader, has made the equation between Gibraltar, a major bone of contention with EU member Spain, and the Falkland Islands war of the 1980s. It’s hard to tell if this is fact or fiction.

Op-Ed: Trump bills Germany $490b for NATO ‘debt’. WRONG

Berlin - Donald Trump’s obscure logic for all things has reached a milestone at NATO. Trump handed Chancellor Merkel a ‘bill’ for $490 billon for America’s contribution to Germany’s defence. This was sublime unreality at its least impressive.

Op-Ed: Kittens grab Trump? Apparently the pussies are winning

San Francisco - Donald Trump’s “grab them by the pussy” campaign line has come back to bite him. Apparently he doesn’t like non-existent pussy cats grabbing him. His lawyers are trying to shut down a website where they do that.

Op-Ed: House bill lets employers to take DNA samples with no obligations

Washington - On top of the absurdity of overturning the Affordable Care Act, House Republicans have OK’d a dovetailing bill called HR 1313. This is a House bill which allows employers to penalize employees on their health insurance for not giving DNA samples.

Op-Ed: Using quantum theory to explain humor? It’s dumber than it looks

Vancouver - For many years, people have been saying that analyzing humor is pointless. That hasn’t stopped people trying, and failing, regularly. You also have to wonder why humor, of all things, needs an explanation.
