Once praised as the region's most politically open country, [the government of] Kuwait is increasingly penalizing political dissent in ways that were once perceived by the government itself as overkill: revoking politically active citizens' citizenship and effectively leaving them "stateless".
The government of Kuwait has—over the past three months—revoked the citizenship of around 30 Kuwaiti nationals.
Interestingly, one characteristic that unites all these cases of revocation of citizenship is that their victims have—explicitly or otherwise—expressed their demand for greater transparency and accountability, greater public participation and democratic governance, and a firmer stand against corruption on the part of the government.

A recent paper by Schich et al. on Science illustrates beautifully the trends of human migration and activity that have shaped the world culture as we experience it today. Using publicly available data from the freebase.com database, the researchers have charted birth (blue) and death (red) places of more than 120,000 of the world's influential intellectuals.
The animated chart demonstrates how cultural centers have risen and fallen throughout much of the human history. Transportation inventions like railroad and cars have had a visible and interesting effect on the trends of human migration, which can be clearly seen. In addition, the animated chart reveals the connections between the cultural centers: patterns of human mobility between them as well as growth of their metropolises.
