Remembering 'the father of Palmyra,' the 82-year-old slain by ISIS

mashable.com — LONDON - A good friend and colleague in Syria recalled on Wednesday how he had walked with "the father of Palmyra" among the ruins - ruins that Khaled Asaad had turned into his life's work. It was last year, and through his recognizable spectacles, he peered at the ruins, the Roman pillars, the castle, amphitheater and the Forum.

Welcome to Brussels, the new capital of Greece

mashable.com — BRUSSELS - This is a truly wonderful time of the year to be in the Greek capital again; the typical soft summer rain; the lovely cobbled squares with carefully tended shuttered houses in the Flemish style; the aroma of steak and frites and the multi-lingual conversations of the suited hordes of Euroland staffers.

The eerie calm of London's streets: How 7/7 unfolded up close

mashable.com — Coming out of the tube station, peak-hour commuter rush, considering what the new day will hold. Suddenly a policeman steps out towards me, smiling. He's feeling smart, one step or two ahead of me: "Hey - Mr. Thomson: You want to call your news desk." "Really? Why? What's up?"

England still doesn’t get what the election in Scotland was really about

mashable.com — A Jockalypse Now - that's the Scottish National Party buzz-phrase as they and their legions bask in the afterglow of turning Scotland yellow from the glens to Glasgow and back. Turning a racial slur into a badge of victory, jock being a derogatory term for Scot.

Voters love the 'most dangerous woman in Britain'

mashable.com — GLASGOW - One street, two meetings, and the essence of a country apparently undergoing a sedate, but real, revolution. Buchanan Street - Glasgow's elegant, sloping answer to London's flat and tatty Oxford Street. Meeting One. Scottish Labour party leader Jim Murphy stands at the lower end of Buchanan Street for an election speech.

'Tell the world: It was the Cossacks' who took this Ukrainian city

mashable.com — DEBALTSEVE, Ukraine - I suppose there is some comfort in that she can hear anything here except shelling. Comfort, too, perhaps that she can at least be here - above ground and still alive. Nadezheda, above ground after several weeks of hiding, is slowly stooping among wooden pallets, sacks of stinking rotting onions and potatoes.

Sudden and violent death on the front lines of Debaltseve in Ukraine

mashable.com — VUHLEHIRSK, Ukraine-He can barely walk. Long coat. Russian fur hat. A vodka nose and several days worth of stubble. But, yes, he remembers when the Wehrmacht and the Red Army pulverized these towns - and he has long since learned the lessons of war. He is immovable. "I am Victor - Victor Sergeyevich."

The reality of Ukraine cease-fire: An explosion every few seconds

mashable.com — HORLIVKA, Ukraine - Yuri was on the phone with his mother when the explosion from the shell blew off both his legs. "There was this flash and suddenly I just didn't understand anything," he said, lying in bed at Horlivka Hospital Two, wincing from pain as there is no access to proper painkillers.
