Tous les ans, le 19 Mai, les Bretons du monde entier fêtent “Gouel Erwan” (la Saint-Yves), c’est-à-dire la fête nationale bretonne, l’équivalent de la Saint-Patrick pour les Irlandais! Cette fête se déroulait cette année du 15 au 24 Mai, au travers de plus de 200 événements en Bretagne et ailleurs dans le monde.

Mais une autre date, tout aussi importante, est de plus en plus célébrée en Bretagne, celle du 22 Novembre. C’est en effet le 22 Novembre 845, à Bains-sur-Oust, qu’eut lieu la victoire de Ballon. Le Comte de Vannes, Nominoë, infligea une cuisante défaite au roi des Francs, Charles... Read More

Washington. D. C. / Berlin. On September 23, 2009 the Department of State issued a travel alert for all U.S. citizens that Al Qaeda has threatened it will conduct terrorist attacks in Germany maybe immediately prior to and following the federal elections on September 27. The travel alert released by the U.S. Department of State will expire on November 11, 2009.

Al Qaeda recently released five video messages during one week specifically warning Germany of attacks. German authorities are taking the threat seriously and have taken measures to enhance the level of security throughout the... Read More

On 19th May, all the Bretons in the world will celebrate “Gouel Erwan” (or St-Yew’s day, i.e. Britanny’s Day!), the equivalent to the Irish St Patrick’s Day! Time to look back at what Brittany was in the past, what it is nowadays and what it could become in the next decades…

Brittany is a beautiful piece of land located in the North-West of France. Well known to Britons for being their favourite second home choice in France, but who actually knows much about the actual place? Did you know for example that Brittany is a former independent Celtic... Read More

I realise that my first sightings of ‘coppers’ or the Police in the United Kingdom made me gasp in awe. What kind of Police force gallivants and make street runs without artillery or guns? Then it was explained to me that the police force in the UK didn’t carry guns. I was perplexed, not so long after, stories (real life ones) of gangs clashing with the police and having vantage over them because gangs had weapons started to emerge. In 2001 debates loomed far and wide about whether the police should carry guns (BBC, 2001). The saga continued after several terrorist threats, the Police... Read More

Major changes are taking place over at America's parent's house and it would appear that for Tony Blair, Bush's only remaining ally in the Iraq war who still exposed himself to his critics, Merry Ole' England has become little less merry. Perhaps they sent Queen Mum over here to distract our President with all the pageantry. For while Bush was busy figuring out how to keep BBQ sauce off his new white tie, and as he stumbled over speeches that called the Queen hundreds of years old, some monumental decisions took place across the puddle, revealing that the steely resolved Brits ain't so...

Holy crap! The most exciting piece of news since, like, a long time, has taken place in Belgium! That's right! The very same country this reporter wrote about some time ago is now in the throes of a heated debate on the sensitive subject of, get this, a hoax presented as genuine news. Viewers were made aware of this an astounding half-hour after the show began, and a half an hour is a very long time - especially when your attention span doesn't exceed that of the average goldfish or, in the worst cases, that of the average American. Before getting to the hoax itself, here's a brief description... Read More

As this post-communist democracy races to westernize there are signs of capitalism emerging on every street corner. At all the major crossroads of the city, smiling smugly down on the eager citizens of Bucharest, are the Golden Arches. With a popularity rarely still found in the States, Ronald and the boys are drawing in the masses in this Eastern European capital. On a Friday night in Piata Romana, a major metro stop and commercial hub, a packed outdoor terrace of 30+ picnic tables dominates the wide sidewalks of Bd. Nicolae Balcescu. The interior glistens with a freshness that is a welcome... Read More
