As I pick up this pen...

It was November 2008 when I first took up blogging in this space, right after Sen. Barrack Obama's election as America's 44th president.

How times have changed.

We now are witnessing the dawn of a new era in America, and the world undoubtedly.

The election of Donald J. Trump to succeed Mr. Obama heralds a new direction for America.

From an outward-looking, open, diverse, collaborative, and multilateralist polity, to one that would have an inward-looking, isolationist, and competitive/winner-take-all mentality.

It comes on the heels of the Brexit vote in the UK and the rise of far-right parties in Western Europe. 

Having taken a break from blogging in the past two years, I feel the need to start writing again.

Now more than ever, the need to find new, better ideas to deal with complex, long-standing problems is emerging.
