This Christmas, follow the original art stars of the east

Two thousand years ago, Buddhist not Christian art was our guiding light – and had all the best nativity scenes


A crowd of people gather round a man on a horse, in an ancient stone relief that roars with life. Is this Christ entering Jerusalem? Or even a nativity scene – a wise man heading for Bethlehem perhaps?


In fact, it is an image of Prince Siddhartha setting out from his father’s palace. This masterpiece of Buddhist art was carved in Gandhara, on the borders of modern Pakistan and Afghanistan, some time between the second and fourth centuries AD. But like many other artworks from ancient Gandhara, it uncannily resembles early Christian art. Indeed, it is evidence of a fascinating encounter of east and west.

For most people with a smartphone or tablet, their most-used apps weren’t released in 2014. Facebook, Twitter, Google Maps, Candy Crush Saga, Kindle, Spotify, Clash of Clans, YouTube... these apps have been out for years, albeit regularly updated since their original releases.


Does that mean there aren’t any good new ideas in the world of apps? Nope. There were plenty in 2014, from useful productivity apps for iPhone and Android smartphones, to inventive tablet games and creative, educational children’s apps.

Strongman leadership returns to grip Egypt and divide Libya

But Tunisia keeps the flame of democracy burning with peaceful parliamentary elections

In Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia – three countries that toppled three dictators nearly four years ago – 2014 marked something of a comeback for the concept of strongman leadership.


In Egypt, that comeback was the most pronounced. Former army chief Abdel Fatah al-Sisi was elected president in May, completing a rise to power that began 10 months earlier when Sisi ousted the unpopular Islamist president, Mohamed Morsi. With 96% support from a 47% turnout, Sisi has a clear constituency among a populace exhausted by three years of post-revolutionary upheaval. But it helped that he faced only one opponent, that a pliant local media portrayed support for Sisi as a patriotic duty, and that the election came amid a continuing crackdown on all forms of opposition.

Inflatable incubator aims to help save premature babies

A design graduate won this year’s James Dyson award for his low-cost inflatable incubator which aims to reduce infant mortality


He is only in his early 20s, a recent graduate from Loughborough University, but James Roberts has been named the international winner of this year’s James Dyson award. He receives £30,000 in prize money to help develop a low-cost inflatable incubator for prematurely born babies.


Roberts, 23, hopes his so-called Mom incubator could slash the high death rate of premature babies in developing countries. More than one in 10 babies worldwide are born prematurely. According to the World Health Organisation, 75% of deaths resulting from premature birth could be avoided if inexpensive treatments and practical medical help were more readily available.
