    Sada već tako davnog 29. oktobra 1969. godine na UCLA univerzitetu u Kaliforniji, profesor Len Kleinrock i njegov tim poslali su prvu poruku preko kompjuterske mreže, koja će vremenom evoluirati u Internet kakav poznajemo danas.

    Increasing ROI in Digital Diplomacy0

    In recent years, digitalization has swept through diplomatic institutions altering diplomats’ working routines, norms, values and working procedures. In less than a decade, Ministries of Foreign Affairs (MFA) have migrated to social media, launched virtual embassies, written algorithms, created smartphone applications and conducted consular simulations.

Food guru Elizabeth David took the book under her wing, or perhaps fin, and it reappeared in expanded form as a Penguin publication with the snappier title Mediterranean Seafood.
    Following his retirement from the Foreign Office, Davidson spent an academic year at St Anthony’s Oxford in the late 1970s, conducting research on science in the kitchen from an historical perspective..
