The Nahmias Cipher Report provides up-to-the-minute news, breaking news, and feature stories from Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and the U.S. The report publishes articles on a diverse range of topics including international politics, religion, health, science, art, and human rights.

As a forum for social commentary on the human condition, TNCR is unique in its approach because it invites journalists with diverse voices and perspectives to contribute on a formal or informal basis. The TNCR's standard is to report on any international issue that can raise awareness or provide insight into the activities which are occurring worldwide which may seem remote to readers' daily lives, but may in fact tangentially impact them. We strive to present stories which inspire readers to draw new conclusions and challenge them to explore how they can be involved in the 'change they would like to see in the world.' ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Posts by contributing journalists provide alternative insights into the roles of women in global societies with an emphasis on gender relations, reproductive rights, women’s autonomy, the right to self-determination, and child advocacy. Improving women and children's rights is an important focus of the publication, and these articles are presented by staff journalist who have worked directly with these populations while living in the cultures and countries from which they report. The Editor-in-Chief writes from the perspective of an insider who has lived overseas in countries that grapple with complex social and religious issues that prevent females from achieving equality.
