Yusuf Progler

In 1922, an American farmer and electronics tinkerer by the name of Philo T Farnsworth invented a scanning device that would lead to the development of television. Farnsworth's 'image dissector' solved many of the problems faced by European and American technicians who sought a way to electronically transmit images. Control of Farnsworth's invention would determine the success or failure of all television development.

Years of investigation fail to unearth any wrongdoing in the case of Palestinian professor

Waseem Shehzad

Nearly three years after the scandalous allegations made against him in the documentary, ‘Jihad in America’, US law enforcement agencies have come up with nothing to implicate Dr Sami al-Arian, a University of South Florida (USF) professor, in any wrongdoing.


Secession an option in Sudan accord with southern rebels

M.A. Shaikh

For the first in the history of the Sudanese conflict, Khartoum has conceded to southern rebels the right to exercise self-determination through a properly-supervised referendum.

Zia Sarhadi
