China- Canada’s Relationship: a New Low

The recent expulsion of Chinese and Canadian diplomats is a significant manifestation of strained diplomatic relations, already fragile between the two countries. This escalation in diplomatic tensions not only has consequences on the bilateral relationship, but also on the broader international community. The complex dynamics surrounding the back-and-forth expulsion of diplomats between China and Canada, notably due to leaked spy documents is the result of heightened tension, a maybe inevitable event.

Artificial intelligence : progress or decline of humanity?

We all witnessed the progress of artificial intelligence or AI but especially how fast it is going. The past few months and years, the advancement of AI took a big leap forward which caused humans to reconsider their ways of living and to find a balance between technology and reality.

Pollution in Mumbai

In Indian newspapers, there are often comparisons between New Delhi and Mumbai, with the latter often being criticized for beating New Delhi in a negative way. When referring to Mumbai, it usually includes the city itself and its surrounding suburbs with a total area of 603.4 km2, representing six times the size of the city of Paris, and a population of 12.4 million people. Due to its high population density, with 21,000 people per km2, air pollution is a high common environmental issue, but water pollution is also a major concern. Many of Mumbai’s residents live in poverty (60% living in slums), which makes them unaware of the impact of pollution and its causes. Indeed, people living in precarious situation are usually unaware of climate change and its causes, therefore how it is being created.
