A sign of the tectonic geopolitical re-alignments afoot in the Middle East. Exciting times ahead ... the onus is on everyone!
In a video interview with Thomas L. Friedman, President Obama discussed the calculations that informed the Iran nuclear framework and what they say about his overall approach to foreign policy.

Congratulations to Malala Yousafzai on her Nobel Peace Prize, and an equally powerful, moving and memorable acceptance speech... truly one for the ages. At only 17 years of age, her success will hopefully know no bounds.

"Tensions between these two historic enemies have been high in recent years, but we believe they are now at a boiling point,” Khamenei said. “As a result, Iran feels it must offer itself as a peacemaker.”

A memorable three weeks in January. As an Iranian (by birth) and Australian (at heart), I'm proud of everything it represented.
They were the people who brought the passion, colour and noises of Asia to Australia, and while the Asian Cup is now past, the memories of it will linger on

RIP Phillip. Thoughts and prayers are with his devastated family.
In hindsight, it's quite saddening to see their similing, cheerful and proud faces in this video, and know of the tragic fate that awaited them. :(
