Tucked away among cornfields in the midwestern United States, a military-grade chainlink fence surrounds a verdant berm on an otherwise empty plot of land. It is guarded by a camouflaged lookout with an assault rifle. Underneath this unassuming hill is a 15-storey inverted luxury tower block called the Survival Condo – and it could be a portend of future private underground developments in cities the world over. Stretching 60 metres below the surface, the Kansas silo was one of 72 “hardened” missile structures built during the cold war to protect a ballistic missile with a nuclear payload one hundred times more powerful than the bomb dropped on Nagasaki. It was bought in 2008 by Larry Hall, an ex-government contractor, property developer and doomsday prepper who, like millions of others, is actively attempting to adapt for what he sees as probable future conditions of wide-scale calamity. Preppers anticipate war, pandemics, climate chaos, nuclear disaster, runaway … [Read more...] about A cinema, a pool, a bar: inside the post-apocalyptic underground future
Panellists at the Women of the World festival highlight the obstacles women face in public spaces and suggest ways to enable the broader representation of women in society. PHOTO: EXPRESS KARACHI: In Pakistan, women do not enjoy the same privileges as men when it comes to recreation. Despite multiple platforms created for leisure purposes, women and their needs are not always considered, let alone prioritised. Think of a recreation space that is solely dedicated to women – there are hardly any. And even when you stumble across the few that have been created in an attempt to incorporate all sections of society, they too come with their own challenges, constraints and limitations. At the Women of the World festival at Beach Luxury Hotel on Sunday, speakers at a panel, entitled “Reclaiming Public Spaces for Women,” underscored the many obstacles that women face in public spaces and presented solutions to allow the broader representation of women in … [Read more...] about Right to live: Can women in Pakistan reclaim public spaces through their voice?
Kamal Tarazi fled the Gaza Strip in 2007 after Hamas, an Islamic group considered a terrorist outfit in Israel, seized control of the enclave, ousting its previous government, officials from Fatah. "The moment they took control, they started persecuting us, ruining our churches and forcing Christians to convert to Islam", the 60-year-old Christian recalls. The Turning Point It was then that Tarazi decided to organise demonstrations against the movement, uniting Christians and Muslims alike. The calls to act didn't move the masses, but they did anger Hamas. "I was jailed several times. Do you know what a Hamas prison is? It is pure torture", he explains, adding that the Islamic group decided to keep him alive to avoid depicting themselves as persecutors of the local Christian population, something that could potentially anger the international community. After two months in prison, Tarazi had had enough. Shortly before Christmas, he applied for a permit that would allow him to cross the … [Read more...] about The Exodus: Christians Fleeing Gaza, Fearing Persecution
“Game of Thrones” was both an unprecedented achievement and old-school role model in the TV decade that’s rolling its final credits. Installments of the elaborately produced hit were doled out one at a time by an established outlet, premium cable channel HBO. That was standard TV operating procedure until, suddenly, it wasn’t. The new era arrived in 2013 when a full season’s worth of “House of Cards” popped up amid Netflix’s on-demand movies and old TV shows. The drama’s unexpected home appeared simply to be an option to the 500-channel universe born in the 1990s. But “House of Cards” foreshadowed a streaming gold rush and volume of programming dubbed Peak TV in 2015 — and with no drop in altitude in sight. The result: Nothing is the same, whether it’s how much television we consume; how and where we do it; who gets to make it, and the level of respect given the creatively emboldened small screen. We … [Read more...] about How Streaming, Diversity, #MeToo Shaped TV Decade of Change
