Doaa Al Zamel: A young Syrian woman's search for peace 23.5.2018 General News
The poignant tale of Doaa Al Zamel, an ordinary girl from a village in Syria who in 2015 survived a gory fishing boat sail and the journey she risked to escape the conflagration in her homeland is the subject of a new book. Doaa was one of 500 people crammed on to the fishing boat setting sail for Europe. The boat was deliberately capsized, and of those 500 people, 11 survived; they were rescued four days after the sinking. Doaa was one of them and her fiance Bassem, with whom she had fled, drowned in front of her. Melissa Fleming, chief spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, heard about Doaa and the death of 489 of her fellow refugees and decided to fly to Crete to meet the girl, who had rescued a toddler when she was nearly dead herself. Melissa saw in Doaa the story of the war in Syria embodied by a young woman. She decided to tell Doaa's story - the dangers she fled, and the journey she risked to escape the conflagration in her homeland. "A Hope More Powerful Than

MH370 search director disagrees with pilot ditch theory 22.5.2018 General News
The director of a seabed hunt for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 today disagreed with a new book's conclusion that the pilot likely flew the plane beyond the search area to deliberately sink it in unexplored depths of the Indian Ocean. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau believes the airliner mostly likely ran out of fuel and crashed after flying far off course en route from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing on March 8, 2014. It believes all 239 passengers and crew on board were likely long dead inside a depressurized cabin and cockpit. Search director Peter Foley, who coordinated the search on Malaysia's behalf, was quizzed by a Senate committee on theories in Canadian air crash investigator Larry Vance's new book "MH370: Mystery Solved." The book argues that two wing flaps found on islands off Africa in 2015 and 2016 point to pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah performing a controlled ditching outside the 120,000 square kilometers that were scoured by sonar in a 198 million Australian dollar

Australia investigators defend MH370 out-of-control scenario 22.5.2018 General News
Australian investigators today defended their findings that missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 was out of control when it plunged into the ocean, despite renewed theories that a rogue pilot ditched the plane. The Boeing 777 -- which vanished in March 2014 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing carrying 239 passengers -- has not been found despite an extensive search led by Australia in the southern Indian Ocean and a continuing private search commissioned by Malaysia. The failure to find the plane has fuelled theories which differ from the conclusions of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB), which led the first search, that the jet was making a high-speed out-of-control descent when it hit the water. The theory that a rogue pilot deliberately ditched the jet -- landing it in a controlled way on the ocean surface -- was revived in a new book released this week by former Canadian air crash investigator Larry Vance. Vance has also asserted that there were failures in the ...

Book deals with implications of constantly connected world 21.5.2018 General News
What makes one happier - am emoji or a real smile; a real hug or curly braces? The enormous amount of information and the information technology surrounding us with increasingly sophisticated tools and methods are not only changing our ways of living but also ways of thinking and probably even how our brains work, authors of a new book say. While accepting that we live in a constantly connected world, we at times need to disconnect to reconnect with the world, they advise. The connected world has changed the premise of what it means to be human, and it will continue to impact lives at a rapidly growing pace in the years to come, both on a personal and professional level says the book "Connected or Disconnected: The Art of Operating in a Connected World". It talks about how to handle the challenges constant connectedness pose to one's wellbeing - sleeping patterns, close relations, work-life balance, and parenting. In the book, published by SAGE, authors Micke Darmell and Kapil Rampal .
