After the bombs: returning Syrians face a bleak future of poverty, hunger, queues for fuel and frequent blackouts - The National, Feb 12, 2019
A new report published last week by the World Bank highlighted just how dire their prospects are. An estimated two thirds of Syrians are living in extreme poverty, making what amounts to less than $1.90 a day.

While there are few reliable figures, more than half the population are thought to be unemployed and Syria’s GDP fell by 63 per cent between 2011 and 2016.

Now, the lines snaking around diesel fuel trucks, declining school enrollment rates and the flight of the country’s doctors abroad belie a sad and dangerous truth – Syria’s government can no longer provide for its citizens, who have already lost so much.

Syrian people suffer after Pyrrhic victory | The Conflict Research Programme, Feb 12, 2019
This has undoubtedly comforted many Syrians who have been exhausted by a war that, for many, has become meaningless. A large segment of Syrians look forward to safer and more tolerable living conditions. Their short-lived ambitious dreams have been curtailed.

A Non-Toxic Thermoelectric Generator for Wearable Tech - IEEE Spectrum
A new way to harvest electricity from body heat could inspire new wearable devices that never need to be plugged in. The millivolts of electricity this thermoelectric technology produces mandates slim power usage from any electronics plugged in to its feed. The new, wearable thermoelectric generator is also sourced from non-toxic and non-allergenic substances, making it a viable candidate for wearable technology. In fact, says Trisha Andrew, associate professor of chemistry at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, the substrate on which the generator is built is plain old cotton fabric.
