In a week where:

  1. Queen Elizabeth II dies aged 96.
  2. 7.7 magnitude earthquake hits Papua New Guinea.
  3. The police watchdog has launched a murder investigation into the death of Chris Kaba.
  4. Ukraine retook over 1K sqm of territory in the north-eastern Kharkiv region over the weekend.
  5. Pillar of French New Wave Cinema, Jean-Luc Godard, dies aged 91.

In Politics: (6:05) The new Liz Truss government is underway with what is the most "diverse" cabinet in UK history, maybe European history; but does diversity matter when ideologies are the same?

In Society: (20:22) The energy crisis has been incrementally eased by a recent Gov't cap on energy, but that is merely a stop gap for what should be more action to be taken ahead of the coming winter.

In Tech: (33:03) Something that always concerns me in all forms of the Internet is preservation. What is preserved? What needs to be preserved? And what have we already lost?

Lastly, in Life: (49:51) Not sure if you noticed, but Queen Elizabeth II died last week; and I feel a good old 'zoom out' is in order to tackle this topic.
