Oil Rig.jpgEven with exceedingly high oil prices worldwide, gas consumption and oil demand is still increasing steadily. Today, consumers use over 80 million barrels a day (bpd) of petroleum worldwide [1]. This kind of energy consumption is the consequence of the integration of technology into our daily lives, especially in transportation.

Gender.jpgCan the philosophy of segregation survive our fast changing times?

Sanaa, Yemen’s beautiful capital city, is realizing the alarming introduction and popularity of mixed-gender coffee shops and smoke (sheesha) parlors. Women and men share the same space and enjoy the services offered by these establishments.
