The protests in Istanbul were a surprise to most. Turkey is a big successful regional power but people had mainly gotten used to thinking of it in terms of its relations to Syria, to NATO and the EU, to Palestine and Israel. Things seemed quiet at home. Then they weren’t. The geographical and emotional center of Istanbul is a big square called Taksim.

Meat is animal flesh that is eaten as food. Humans are carnivorous species. I would even say that we are omnivorous. Humans have hunted and killed animals for meat since prehistoric times. The advent of civilization allowed the domestication of animals and eventually their use in meat production on an industrial scale – this is at least how it is defined in reference books.

With the flick of a switch, Philips Electronics may have just dramatically lowered America’s electric bill. In September 2009 the Dutch electronics giant became the first to enter the U.S. Department of Energy’s L Prize competition, which seeks an LED (light emitting diode) alternative to the common 60-watt light bulb. Sixty-watt lights account for 50% of the domestic incandescent market; if they were replaced by LED bulbs, the U.S. could save enough electricity per year to light 17.4 million households. If Philips won the L Prize, back in 2009 it could claim a cash award and Federal purchasing agreements worth about $10 million. Philips’ LED bulb emits the same amount of light as its incandescent equivalent but uses less than 10 watts and lasts for 25,000 hours — or 25 times as long. The diodes emit light whenever electrical currents are passed through them without creating noticeable heat.

There is lots of talk about the economy and money and there doesn't seem to be much money circulating around. Orders are down, and some say there is little foreign investment. The main problem is not that there is little foreign investment, it is that those businesses with money in Georgia aren't spending it or putting it in the economy by expanding or establishing new businesses. The reason they aren't doing this is fear.

People who care about Georgia need to come to an understanding about what happened on Friday 17 May 2013 in Tbilisi. A group of people decided to demonstrate against homophobia and a very large mob of people chased them away and in some cases beat them severely. There were many police but they were not successful in managing the crowds.

Back in Shevardnadze's day when people talked about people working for the government they talked about compromats. It was a system. Just as it was a system where traffic police had to pay for their jobs, and could collect money from the population to pass upstairs to keep their job and to pay off the debts they incurred to buy the job.

On Easter the topic of Georgia's demographic problem and abortion was raised. I don't agree that abortion should be illegal or even that there is a demographic problem, but it is good that the conversation has started about the topic. Georgia has one of the highest abortion rates in the world. Also, Georgia, along with Armenia and Azerbaijan, has among the highest rates of sex selective abortions in the world, around the levels of India and China.

Apple sold 5 million iPhone 5 units in the first three days after release in the USA and Europe. Georgia sales figures are around half a million. Considering most of these buyers never saw, held or played with an iPhone 5 in person, that’s a big leap of faith. While we haven’t seen any flubs the scale of “Antennagate” this time around, there have been plenty of complaints about the new smartphone. . .

The end of Shevardnadze's traffic police and the creation of the Patrol Police is one of the most talked about reforms of the former government. There is no more powerful symbol of a clear break with the past. And it worked. Patrol Police continue to be a respected group in Georgia. But Georgia in 2013 is different from Georgia in 2003, so maybe it is time to take a look at the police and see if what we have what we need.

It’s always a useful task to put some perspective onto the rate of technological change over the last decade or two. I have talked about Generation “Y” and the millenials in earlier editorials, with the video of the toddler using an iPad with ease, but being dumbfounded by a magazine, illustrating perfectly how the children of the internet age are true digital natives. What’s really interesting to look into is the way the new ‘totally mobile’ generation are using the internet, social media and connectivity in different ways to the rest of us.

Americans don't know much about Chechnya. The most recent conflict rekindled around the time Putin and the FSB was given power in Russia at the end of 1999 and beginning of 2000, and lasted until around 2007. Unlike the Chechen war in the 90's, this was not simply a nationalistic insurgency, but had a strong element of international political islam.
