    News, David Fickling, Published on 26/08/2019

    » The fires currently consuming Brazil's Amazon rainforest seem a world away from the tense diplomacy in the US trade war with China. In truth, they're more closely connected than you might suspect.

    Amid the behemoths, let's hope Barnes & Noble survives

    News, David Leonhardt, Published on 09/05/2018

    » Barnes & Noble is in trouble. You hear that, in worried tones, when you talk to people in the book business. You feel it when you walk into one of the chain's stores, a cluttered mix of gifts, games, DVDs (DVDs?) and books. And you really see the problems if you dig into the company's financial statements.

    Update the computer law

    News, Editorial, Published on 18/04/2018

    » If events over the past two weeks do not convince the government to write an actual law covering computer fraud, maybe nothing will. The first unfortunate event was to threaten a Chiang Mai magazine editor with a computer crime charge over something that had nothing to do with computers (or crime, come to that).

I have to pinch myself as it seems like I am back in the late 90s, a time when environmental protests were frequent across the country.

    Fond memories of Brazil's coffee culture

    News, Roger Crutchley, Published on 07/08/2016

    » With the Rio Olympics finally under way, I can't get out of my head the old Frank Sinatra song that starts: "Way down among Brazilians/Coffee beans grow by the billions …" It was entitled The Coffee Song and a big hit when I was a kid back in the Stone Age.
