A new job, a big move, and no time

It’s been almost three weeks since I wrote the last blog post and now that I’ve surfaced again, I’ve got a new job, made a big move across the state, and have been working during the day and unpacking in the evenings.

Things are still hectic, everything is new, and boxes are still unopened around me, but I finally have Internet access so I intend to start blogging more regularly.

Meanwhile, the world hasn’t stopped just cause I’ve been busy. :) There are protests still going on in Syria, even after 10 weeks. Latest news is that 8 people were recently killed. There seems to be, at least a temporary, cease fire in Yemen to halt the fighting between the opposition tribal leaders and the security forces. The Egyptians are still trying to figure it all out and in the meantime, the country has been struggling to “recover important sources of revenue, especially tourism and foreign direct investment (FDI) that have fallen since the revolution.” In the meantime, Iranian protesters have kept away from the streets, but the political posturing continues in the government. The latest most amazing news is the rift between Ayatollah Khomeini and President Ahmadinejad, who seemed best of friends in 2009. It’ll be interesting to sit back and watch what will happen next.

Meanwhile, you can hear some viewpoints about the uprisings in Middle East:
