Future - Welcome to a home for the insatiably curious What is BBC Future? Well, for starters we are about so much more than making predictions. Our mission statement is simple: "Making you smarter every day." Top 10 Graphic Novels 2017 As the range of children’s graphic novels expands, authors are treading new ground and tackling different topics in imaginative ways. This year, our top 10 list includes Svetlana Chmakova’s Brave, a genuinely fresh take on bullying, and Melissa Jane Osborne and Veronica Fish’s The Wendy Project, in which a traumatic accident blurs the line between reality and fantasy for a teenage girl. Katie O’Neill’s The Tea Dragon Society has a traditional feel to it, but her tale of dragons who produce magical tea is totally original. On the other end of the emotional scale, Louis Undercover is a story of parental love, alcoholism, and divorce, which may help many children realize they are not alone. From fantasy to reality, traditional to modern, this year’s list spans many types of stories, all told by talented creators.

Share Your Silence John Cage’s 4'33" is a composition four minutes and thirty-three seconds in length, during which the performer—or performers—does not play a note. Often described as Cage’s "silent" piece, 4'33" was in fact meant to shift attention away from the performer, to the audience itself, and to the richness and variety of ambient sound. Reflecting years later on the 1952 debut performance, Cage wrote: "What they thought was silence, because they didn’t know how to listen, was full of accidental sounds."

ABOUT US Hi there! So here’s our story…. This is how it all started… From Newspapers, Magazines, Journals, Books to Websites, Blogs, Twitter Profiles and Quota accounts, we, just like the other youngsters, were attracted to the process of information assimilation and drawing conclusions based on those pieces of information. But, what was the impact of that consumption? We never contemplated on that and life showcased us examples of the effect of what kind of information or news we consumed.

It is a factor that is generally only whispered about at diplomatic receptions, news conferences, and think tank sessions due to the explosiveness and controversial nature of the subject. And it is the secretiveness attached to the subject that has been the reason for so much misunderstanding about the current breakdown in relations between Israel and Turkey, a growing warming of relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia, and increasing enmity between Saudi Arabia and Iran… The Donmeh sect of Judaism was founded in the 17th century by Rabbi Sabbatai Zevi, a Kabbalist who believed he was the Messiah but was forced to convert to Islam by Sultan Mehmet IV, the Ottoman ruler.
