    13:24, March 27, 2015By Seda Hergnyan The international price of copper continues to fluctuate and the trend is downward. This doesn’t auger well for Armenia, so heavily dependent on the export of various raw materials. In January 2014, the international price of copper stood at US$ 7,500  per ton. By January of this year it had dropped to $5,500. While the price rose a bit in February it has dropped again this month. This comes against the backdrop of the overall softening economic  situation in China, a country that imports a great deal of Armenian copper. The economic slowdown in China…

    CNN International has released an episode about Armenia as part of its “CNN On the Road” series. Even though I couldn’t find the official video on CNN’s website, the YouTube video embedded above is verifiably a CNN product.  The episode, which features a couple of my friends (here’s a shout to @arpik and @searres), draws a charming picture of Armenia as a country of technology, smart chess-playing kids, churches, traditions (like khash) and good-natured political satire. It gives a good measure of information about the Armenian Genocide and prominently…

He said to him, ‘Follow me.’ Matthew got up and followed him.” Matthew 9:9I challenge you today, as you walk in the street, stop and tell people, “Follow me”. Chances are that not many will obey you and follow you.How come then the 12 disciples were so blinded as to follow Jesus?After all they didn’t know Him. They didn’t know that He was the Messiah. He was just a random man, walking along the way. I guess when Jesus spoke these two words, “Follow me”, there was…

    The last three days with my son Areg have been very special. I feel we have really bonded, and the relationship we have built, based on love, mutual respect and enjoyment of life, has become tighter. A few months ago I went back to Boston for four weeks. It was Christmastime. Not only was I visiting my family, I was also starting my studies for my MFA in Creative Writing at Lesley University, taking part in their Low Residency program. That means I have to be on campus for a week each semester and attend workshops and seminars.  For reasons out of my control, I could not take Areg with…

Tensions are high on Armenia's borders. The economy is starting to tank. Regional stability is fragile. Let's pray for peace. That will come from inner peace, inner stability, confidence and self reliance. Most of all peace comes from tolerance and empathy.2. Evenings when both my sons sleep over in their own…
