    An introduction, or a reminder if you prefer, of who's who in this year's winner line-up for the Nobel Prizes, 2011, across all categories. Regionally the prize that created the biggest stir in the climate of Arab Spring and the fight for woman's rights was nabbed by Arabia's very own Chammpion of Peace, journalist Tawakkul Karmen, the Yemeni lady and mother.

    Tomorrow the day of reckoning for Palestinian statehood is upon us. Will Palestinians be granted an upgrade to statehood, whether of the fully-fledged kind or the observer non-member variety? And how will such a 'state' look anyway. Will it be the present day splintered reality of 'Palestine' dispersed between Gaza and fractions or pieces of the West Bank, barring East Jerusalem?

    Since Gaddafi left our screens to only enter the picture through mythical reports of his legendary flight details, The Colonel - considered now to be the most wanted man on earth - has reappeared to us only in the form of Kodak moments. We have been seeing the emergence of an intimate family portrait of his direct tribe, replete with special and ordinary dictator-family memories, from circumcision to wedding, baby pictures and snap-shots of lives lived in luxury.
