Editor’s Note:

Hi, everyone! First, we from Vulcan Post would like to take this opportunity to wish all our Muslim readers Selamat Hari Raya, maaf zahir dan batin. May you have a memorable and enjoyable time celebrating with your family and loved ones, and remember to stay safe on road if you are travelling.

The week leading up to the raya holiday has been quite  a rough one, while some are still recovering from the missing MH370, Taiwan airplane GE222 crashed, and then MH17 got shot down. It truly has been a hard week for many people. Among this chaos, an international online condolence book was started for the victims of MH17 and netizens rally support for Malaysia Airlines as MAS tries to brave through the storm. However, there has also been some disturbing news about some who are taking advantage of the MH17 victims.

We also dealt with some questions last week that might be on some readers’ minds, such as should we practice social responsibility when we are on social media platforms? What happened to old social media platforms such as Friendster and Livejournal? And finally, are relationships really that complicated and what can we do to help our dating journey?

There’s so much more to read about, so during this raya break, take some time to get updated on last week’s news!
