Why does water become liquid? The entertaining family game show Season 16 Episode 17, hosted by artist Nesanet Workneh. There have been many issues that have disrupted the unity of the Ethiopian intelligentsia for generations now. It is high time that the same intelligentsia becomes resourceful and find practicable ways to join all the diverse and vast intellectual energy and contribute to the transformation and advancement of the country. There is no reason to wait until the country’s politics is resolved. Given the way the world functions, poor countries may not be able to resolve their political problems.
