Netflix - Pourquoi vous ne pouvez pas tout regarder ou le dilemme des licences

Netflix va dresser des clôtures numériques en coupant l'accès à ses catalogues internationaux aux utilisateurs de VPN. Cela signifie que les clients au Royaume-Uni, en Australie, aux États-Unis et ailleurs ne seront plus en mesure de contourner le blocage géographique pour puiser dans la bibliothèque internationale de Netflix de films et émissions de télévision. A la place, ils seront obligés d'utiliser le service disponible dans leur région.

Entrée en vigueur de l'accord sur le nucléaire et levée des sanctions contre l'Iran. L’accord nucléaire historique entre l’Iran et les grandes puissances est entré en vigueur samedi après le feu vert de l’Agence internationale de l’énergie atomique (AIEA), entraînant une levée des sanctions économiques qui frappent le pays.

«L’Iran a achevé les étapes préparatoires nécessaires au démarrage de la mise en oeuvre» de l’accord conclu le 14 juillet 2015, a déclaré le secrétaire général de l’agence onusienne, Yukiya Amano, dans un communiqué publié à Vienne, où les chefs de la diplomatie iranienne, européenne et américaine étaient réunis pour d’ultimes discussions. «La mise en œuvre, c’est parti», a confirmé à l’AFP un responsable américain.

In graphics: Iran, sanctions and the nuclear deal: Iran’s nuclear deal becomes a reality

That is the moment when Iran is deemed to have complied with all its obligations in dismantling those parts of its nuclear programme that would soon have put it weeks away from being able to build a bomb. All nuclear-related sanctions, including the freezing of $100bn of Iranian assets, will be lifted. At the same time, Iran will apply the Additional Protocol of its safeguards agreement (subject to ratification by its parliament, the Majlis) with the International Atomic Energy Agency, a measure which gives the agency’s inspectors access to materials and sites beyond declared nuclear facilities.

The deal itself, signed after weeks of wrangling in July 2015, adheres closely to a framework agreed on in Lausanne last April, while resolving a number of tricky issues, any one of which could have scuppered the enterprise.

Down and Out in London vs. Paris. There will always be an England dear to the hearts of Americans who adore the quaint – especially where the natives speak in an intelligible tongue.

Down and Out in London vs. Paris

The Brits high regard for the United States further warms the cockles of the Anglophilic heart. Imitation being the ultimate form of respect in today’s globalized culture, the vanishing England of old (from double-decker buses to bowler hats) diminishes our affection not a whit so long as it is replaced by pop entertainment, catch-phrases, and economic panaceas with the “Made In USA” seal. That assures Americans that the voices raised to hail “the land of hope and glory” really know just what land deserves the accolade. Ritualized affirmations of family ties crop up at random in unpredictable waves. For the past year or so, American media of all stripes are brimming with feel-good accounts of life over there where the sun never sets on Anglo-American friendship.

Vous êtes certainement tombés dessus en circulant. Il s’agit d’une campagne d’affichage (type Abribus) qui met en avant à l’identité française de Wiko, tout en expliquant qu’il s’agit de la « 2e marque de mobiles la plus vendue » en France. Mais ces deux éléments sont à prendre avec des pincettes. « Wiko est français » Middle East. Middle East - International News - Iraq, Israel, Lebanon. Middle East: geography of chaos.

First Persian Gulf War 1980

A disputed waterway along their common border had been the focus of a number of conflicts since the 16th century, and in the 20th century, tensions between the two countries built as treaties and pacts were repeatedly made and broken. Tensions increased further in the 1970s as Iran gave shelter and arms to Kurdish rebels fighting against Saddam Hussein’s regime. In 1975, the two countries brokered a deal in the Algiers Agreement in which Iraq made some territorial concessions in exchange for Iran ceasing its support of the Kurdish rebels. Peace was short-lived, however, as the 1979 Iranian Islamic revolution espoused a pan-Islamic religious nationalism, which Hussein perceived as a threat to his notion of a pan-Arab nationalism which was more secular in nature and did not include the ethnic Persians of Iran.

The boys’ father, Abdullah, was one of the few survivors. He was in the sea for three hours before he was rescued by the Greek coastguard. He tried to hold onto his family but one by one they were washed from his grasp. Where had they come from? The Kurdi family, who are ethnic Kurds, had fled the conflict in Syria, where they lived in the war-torn town of Kobane. Mustafa Ebdi, a journalist in Kobane, said the family, whose surname he said was Shenu, had been displaced several times by the Assad regime's war with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
