When Thanos, Asa or the Ovi Team decide to express a particular opinion concerning their magazine they will post it here, plus any other announcements about new developments and plans.
'I Spy', 'Origin of the Species', 'Jane of Thought', Rob Jenkinson's Letters from America' and many more can be found here each week. The section also contains iBite, a humorous snapshot and commentary of the world's news.
Ovi magazine talks to an individual about their work, life or philosophy. They will range from public figures to the lesser known, yet no less powerful, people across the world. They will all have one common denominator: Ovi respects their work.
Contemporary politics, world finance, business and global commentaries appear in the main Ovi section.
This section contains articles about science, nature, medicine, anthropology, health and the human spirit.
Athletes, Olympics, drug abuse, trophies, leagues, team sports, board games, past, present and future are tackled here.
Global culture, including music, art, film, music, the producers and the consumers, this is our entertainment section.
Reviews and criticisms of classic and contemporary literature, movies and art, including the occasional review of the slightly offbeat, fill this section.
Creativity with a pen, pencil, crayon or mouse are collected together here, including Thanos' 'The Worms', one man's one-sided conversation with God in 'Life Undercover', the bullying Rooster in 'Show Bizz', Jonathan Fischer's 'Death of the Party' and other cartoons by the Ovi team.

'Métèque' is a French derogatory term for Spaniards (and other foreigners from the South) originating in the early 20th century, but the etymology of the word is based upon 'metic', a Greek term for describing an alien who paid a fee to reside in an ancient Greek city. This is the section for foreigners living across the world and features thoughts, advice and experiences on being an immigrant. There is a phrase book, guide to events and an extensive list of links useful to travelers and residents alike.
One of the most popular sites on the web is Wikipedia, but it has one drawback: it wants to be balanced. OviPedia is our very own encyclopaedia and it is filled with biased and unbalanced entries about a growing range of topics. We want opinion-based articles in this section, so don't use it as a research tool - only a tool to fire up discussion.
You can find a selection of PDF books here. We offer cartoons, children's books, collections of Ovi columns and more will follow over time.
