WHAT IS CRIME?
There is no clear and unambiguous answer to that question. Defining crime is simply not easy for it usually raises more questions than answers. Social Scientists say that it is a socially constructed act. However, there are at two important definitions which we should consider — the legal and the normative definitions — since they are the most important differences in the meaning of what crime is.
The legal definition says that “crimes are acts which break or contravene the letter of the law”, while the normative definition says that “crimes are acts which break... (more)
Jean-Baptiste Duprés was a French Investigative Journalist working in Mexico when the outbreak of the Swine Flu virus began in the country. On 25th April 2009, he decided to give up his then work on a high-level drug mexican cartel to start an investigation on the new deadly virus.
Through that investigation that led him into what was to be the most unbelievable conspiracy one could have imagined, Duprés travelled to different places in Mexico and other cities in the world. And after taking some risks, he eventually discovered what really lies beneath the official... (more)
What happened on Bolivian TV over the weekend? Most people would probably answer “Who cares really?”, as there was certainly nothing more interesting there than anywhere else in the world… (except maybe in the UK, where Top Gear unveiled that former Formula 1 pilot, Michael Schumacher, is the Stig! or is he not?)
Well… something actually happened! During the live news broadcast of Bolivian TV channel RED PAT, the female newsreader dared say that the channel had “exclusive” pictures that had be taken in the Air France Flight 447, between... (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... (more)
Against all odds Susan Boyle is this week the subject of everybody’s conversation. Everywhere in the world. She got into fame after her remarkable (outstanding!) appearance on last week’s Britain’s Got Talent, on ITV1. And the Queen would definitely be well inspired to give her a medal of some sort, because her story is amazing and Susan certainly is an example of how it is possible to get through everything even tough your start in life was one of the most difficult possible…
AGAINST ALL ODDS
Against all odds because Susan Boyle was... (more)
No one would ever imagine that the UK terror chief could, deliberately or not, show off an ultra-confidential and ultra-sensitive piece of information to the press about a current anti-terrorist operation, which, if disclosed, could actually jeopardise the whole of the operation and put at risk the agents involved. Even in a James Bond film…
BEYOND THE FICTION
Unfortunately sometimes real life goes far beyond the fiction! Unbelievable yet true, last Wednesday, Bob Quick, the most senior counter-terrorism officer in the United Kingdom, was photographed in Downing... (more)
At the end of the G20 summit last week, French President Nicolas Sarkozy said in a press conference that he was « happy » with the accomplishments made by the 20 leaders, mainly with the new international financial system regulation, which « goes even beyond what we could have imagined. I have never seen anything like that! », he added.
But two worlds (or should we say two visions of the same world) opposed each other before and during the G20. Nicolas Sarkozy’s (little nervous Frenchman, slightly isolated in the world, but with an idol: Napoleon…) and Barack Obama’s (coupled with British... (more)
When can one say that the United States of America are losing it completely and that even their influence on the rest of the world, almost incomparable in the History of mankind, will only weaken and make the country less and less attractive to foreign investors?
When can one say that the United States of America are in a period of continuous decline, and that unless the American people actually elect a president to create a break with the Bush administration and the Bush years (Obama for example…), the country will only sink deeper and deeper into economical and civil instability?...

An advert for the carbonated soft drink Orangina is the subject of a scandal in the United Kingdom, after it was broadcasted only once on E4, a digital television channel, beginning of August. It is an animation and it lasts 60 long seconds. Oddly enough, the same advert, created by a french advertising agency, has been broadcasted since 2007 on French channels without any problem. What’s the deal then?
It appears that the Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) has received 147 complaints on the day the advert was screened on E4, during the channel’s popular programme... (more)
