Of all the things people ever dream of, having the key to their very own home is most supreme. There are so many sentiments attached to buying a house and turning it into a home. This feeling echoes across the globe and is evident in the surge in the home-purchase numbers. In China, nearly 70% of millennials are homeowners, while about 91% planned to buy a home in the next five years. In the US, 5.34 million existing homes were sold in 2018. Of which 667,000 were newly constructed. The search for ‘furnished homes for sale’ in the UK went up by 51% in 2017, according to a property portal. The global real estate market continues to grow with people across the world who are inclined towards investing in ready-to-move-in homes. Toeing this global trend, 84% of Indian homebuyers have also shown their inclinations towards ready-to-move-in (RTMI) homes, as per one research report. While pan India, RTMI properties have grabbed maximum eyeballs, in Mumbai, too, the buyers are … [Read more...] about Why ready-to-move-in homes are the smart choice?
The climate crisis is also a health crisis. The same emissions that cause global warming are also largely responsible for polluting the air we breathe, causing heart diseases, stroke, lung cancer, and infections, and affecting every organ in the human body. Air pollution is the new tobacco, causing as many deaths as cigarettes do. And although it threatens us all, children, the elderly, pregnant women, and adults with weakened immune systems are the most at risk. It is now common knowledge that smoking causes severe harm to you and those around you. That is why the tobacco industry's lobbying and advertising campaigns have been strictly regulated around the world. Globally, we have taken steps to safeguard existing health policies, and to force these companies to tell the truth: that their products kill. Yet our reaction is very different when we learn that air pollution and fossil-fuel-driven climate change are just as deadly. Where are the policies to prevent the fossil fuel industry … [Read more...] about Climate change is also a serious health crisis
A public spat between President Donald Trump and President Emmanuel Macron during the 70th anniversary meeting of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in London has fueled debate about future of the military alliance. NATO was set up in 1949 by 12 nations under the leadership of the United States to counter the Soviet Union. It was enlarged in 1952 when Turkey and Greece joined. Later, West Germany also became a member in 1955. Further expansion continued in the years following the fall of the Berlin Wall, and membership swelled to include the current 29 member states. Most of the latecomers to join were from Eastern Europe and were once part of the Soviet Union's sphere of influence. NATO served an important purpose during the Cold War. The collective security system saved members from any outside attack. But lately the alliance has started to creak and disagreements normally confined to closed door meetings are bursting out into public view. The most bizarre manifestation of … [Read more...] about What is the future of NATO?
With the run-up to the US presidential election, it is the season for bashing China. The Republicans and Democrats will try to out-do each other in painting China as the enemy of everything the United States stands for. Although some of it can be safely ascribed to the usual pre-election US political theatrics, there are new forces at work this time which should concern us all. There is a risk that China and the US are fast-becoming antagonists in a new cold war. The competition is not just in trade, technology, military prowess and spheres of influence. Hawkish talk about "decoupling" is being put forward despite the intricate interlinking of the two economies. Indeed, they have locked horns on pretty much everything. This is unwise and unnecessary. It also misses the biggest global security threat. A US-China "cold war" is not going to fix an increasingly hot planet. US politicians should not only work across the aisle but reach out to China for win-win outcomes. After all, the US … [Read more...] about ‘Cold war’ on a hot planet
