Iceland will play crucial role in Arctic sea route
The LSE's Robert H Wade writes a letter on China's growing interest in emerging sea routes across the Arctic: "Chinese planners anticipate building giant ice-strengthened container ships able to use the shorter route as the ice melts. But the cargoes would have to be shifted to smaller ships to enter their destination ports. Where would the trans-shipment port be located? One obvious place is Iceland, which sits at the entrance to - or exit from - the Arctic ocean. It has several fjords suitable for such a port. This may help explain China's more-than-usual friendship with tiny Iceland. "

Why the Union flag is flying again in the subcontinent
Imran Khan is behind Bradford University's move to launch degrees in strife-torn Pakistan. Last month Lancaster University announced that it too was going to be offering dual degrees with Comsats. Lucy Hodges reports that the motivation for Lancaster's push into the Subcontinent and South East Asia is to get the university known around the world. Very few British universities have a name that is internationally known, the exceptions being Oxford, Cambridge and the London School of Economics.
