The Culture of Peace

The Moros of Mindanao have been brutalized over centuries of wars. Even today, with all the trimmings of so-called agreements and governance, they are being continually pushed to a situation where no amount of law and order will convince them that they should not convulse out of their current displacement.

Are The Times Really A Changin'?

Talk about freedom and human rights. To be dispensed with by whom and for whom? You'd think after all the wars and aggressions the world has gone through all these centuries, and with all the words and letters and chatting we've exchanged with each other in this recent information age, we already have the answers to such questions.

Letters To The World

As the millennium turns, the elders of the world try to reach out to the future generation of 2050 with letters straight from the hearts and minds of a fading century.

In the words of Kofi Annan, Secretary General of the United Nations, "From the sextant to the satellite, each new technical breakthrough has allowed us to conquer the barrier of distance. Indeed, today, people in different parts of the world are directly affected by each other's actions more than ever before in human history..."

Read on Annan's vision of peace for all cultures.

December 1999. The Christmas Season is upon us. And so is the Muslim Ramadan Season and the holy months extending up to Hajj. And yet how many people outside the Islamic world are aware of Ramadan and the holy months and their significance, as much as they are aware of Christmas or even Valentines like they were the air they breath? 

Are the glass windows attractive enough to bring in the customers?


Wisdom For All Times & Places


Then will Allah say:
"O Jesus the son of Mary!
Recount My favour
To thee and to thy mother.
Behold! I strengthened thee
With the holy spirit,
So that thou didst speak
To the people in childhood
And in maturity."
(Qur'an 5:110)

Bugs That Bite

Literally, the bugs! As we explore outer spaces beyond the skies of Earth, so we explore the inner spaces of the Earth, with equally amazing, colorful and dangerous frontiers.

Welcome to the world of microbes ....


Computer Lessons

Bugs & Bytes originally wanted to provide a series on personal computing, ever since its first issue back in 1992, but has never really gotten to doing that. But why re-invent the wheel, so to speak? Let's hear the lessons straight from the experts.

And this site is one real expert that can easily relate to laymen and virtuosos alike.

Warp right into Computerworld's QuickStudy for that truly quick educational shot in the arm....
