The Weekly Focus Edition 43

Nuclear talks between EU, US and Iran:

Nuclear weapons are the most malicious and treacherous manmade objects that have the capability to annihilate a city in seconds. These dire weapons are possessed by several countries. The UN or United Nations is a body that tackles many global issues and they also have a committee dedicated to denuclearisation known as DISEC. Many wars have taken place in the course of history however luckily nuclear warheads have not been used as much. It is possible in the near future for one country to go rogue and misuse these weapons taking thousands of lives.

This is where diplomacy comes in, apart from the UN there are several alliances to help each other and keep peace such as the EU or European Union. Furthermore, there are several treaties such as the NPT stopping countries to create this and test these weapons.

The EU has planned a Vienna meet to talk about these weapons, this has also occurred in the past—where the United States of America, a nuclear nation, had backed out of this meet during the Trump term but have now re-joined with President Biden.

The US re-joining is vital is because of the ongoing conflict with Iran. The United States of America is a nuclear-armed state and with the push of a button, the weapons could lead to catastrophe. Hopefully, diplomacy can prevent any usage of these weapons and in the future banish them from our planet.

Never Have I Ever

Review: A story that follows the life of an Indian teenager struggling through high school in the United States. Filled with funny—perhaps even true—metaphors and stereotypes of life as a freshman, with Mindy Kaling perfectly exhibiting what's it like to have crazy friends, face childhood trauma and parents from the past. Definitely recommended!
