another day another few announcements from the quiet newsroom at aljazeera,
firstly a sad one: Naveed Alvi a colleague, was killed a couple of days ago in a tragic road accident involving a boat coming off its trailer, he was a much loved person in the channel. he will be missed,
second: a very good friend (for now cant mention their name) possibly my best friend out here has resigned, im going to miss them deeply - but i have to say its the right decision for them, they have been struggling with the workplace and their boss for some time - i wish them the best of luck - and if your reading it - love you my friend - may the future bring you great happiness - as you certainly haven't had it here, and you deserve it.
and here a great discussion panel with josh at the USC Public Diplomacy center
