    COVID-19 pandemic can hit Israeli regime harder than expected 

    Military-spying character of the Israeli regime coupled with costly occupation and blockade of the Palestinian territories will certainly narrow down its economic capabilities as COVID-19 outbreak has reduced Tel Aviv's incomes remarkably, a political science expert said.

    Will the U.S. experience decline or reemerge?

    TEHRAN - World War II ended after the United States' forces used mass-destruction weapons for the first time in world history against two Asian cities which left nothing but the mass killing of a vast number of Japanese civilians. The US atomic bombardment of the Japanese cities was a new evil innovation in utilizing science and technology by individual countries to gain more power. The new world order was formed by the US over the globe in 1945.

    U.S. is killing Iranians and the world is complicit

    TEHRAN - A visibly sick and exhausted medic continued to see patients in her small hospital cubicle, writing medical prescriptions with her right hand and receiving intravenous infusion on the left hand. She was a doctor and patient both and had a perfectly acceptable excuse to skip work but she didn’t.

    Earth’s non-human species enjoying diminished human activity

    NORTH CAROLINA - Reports are floating around that bigwigs in the U.S. Defense Department are discomfited if not appalled by Mike Pompeo’s attempts to increase aggression towards Iran in the midst of the viral pandemic. Some voices are even saying that the assassination of General Qassim Soleimani has backfired and was a “mistake” because it has not snuffed out Iran’s capacity or willingness to respond to U.S. aggression in Iraq and Syria and elsewhere.

    The coronavirus, a vaccine to prevent World WarIII!

    Over the past centuries, countries have been proud of their high incomes and wealth, and have always sought to rule over other countries, a move which ultimately has led to war. It also considered one of the main causes of WWI and WWII.

    Trump, it seems likely, is finished politically

    NORTH CAROLINA - On March 13, a “Friday the 13th” by the way, a date in the West anyway often considered to be full of bad news, bad luck and bad omens -- a superstition to be sure – U.S. President Donald Trump was ebullient and bragging that the U.S. stock markets had one of its best days ever. The U.S. equity market climbed almost 10 percent on the 13th after a previous several days of what can only be termed a serious mauling by the proverbial “bear”. No, the U.S. equity market did not make up its losses so far this winter, and in fact closed lower than the highs made just before the vicious recession of 2008-09 that affected the entire world.

    Take an in-depth look at Algeria’s New Republic 

    ALGERIA - In February, 22nd 2019, millions of Algerians have taken to the streets in cities nationwide as well as abroad, shattering the wall of fear of silence, demanding the departure of the-then President Abdelaziz Bouteflika who proceeded to run for a fifth presidential term despite his poor health. This announcement sparked anger among Algerian citizens, giving birth to a massive grassroots movement in several cities, the biggest outpouring of dissent seen in Algeria for decades in 1988 due to social despair, which surprised the international community and observers of Algerian politics due to its peaceful nature.

Since 150 years ago the Pneumonia was almost impossible to cure because the antibiotic didn't exist yet.

    America is not immune

    NORTH CAROLINA - One of the more absurd claims is the assertion by a kook rabbi in Israel (where there are many of the same ilk) that the coronavirus (Covid 19) that is sweeping across the world won’t halt creating its trail of devastation and dislocation until the so-called “third temple” is built in East Jerusalem, presumably atop the rubble of a destroyed al-Aqsa mosque and the Qubba al-Sakra. This rabbi, one Aryeh Lipo, a “religious studies” teacher who is a Likudist, apparently gave a lesson on the Haram esh-Sharif with a bunch of other unwelcome Zionists saying a “third temple” is a powerful cure for the coronavirus pandemic which now even Iran is struggling to corral and eliminate.

    Gig economy, a real assist for small businesses

    A “gig” economy, otherwise called a freelance economy that has an independent workforce, helps small businesses and independent contractors succeed. Obviously, it is difficult for small businesses to compete against large corporations which have economies of scale, but a gig economy can be a tremendous aid for small businesses and individuals and sharpen their competitive postures. The gig economy also opens up a global marketplace for independent contractors to expand their customer base nationally and internationally. Online outsourcing has proven to be a transformative medium in the global economy.
