Spitfire List | Who and/or What is Behind the Fetullah Gulen Organization? COMMENT: In FTR #739, we took a brief look at the pow­er­ful inter­na­tional orga­ni­za­tion of the Pennsylvania-based Turk­ish Mus­lim cleric and author Fetul­lah Gulen. Being inves­ti­gated by the FBI and exco­ri­ated by numer­ous sources for Machi­avel­lian gam­bits to destroy polit­i­cal oppo­nents, the orga­ni­za­tion has a sig­nif­i­cant pres­ence in 80 coun­tries, includ­ing spon­sor­ship of char­ter schools here in the United States. Sus­pi­cions and reser­va­tions about the Gulen orga­ni­za­tion include: fears in Cen­tral Asian republics that the group is Islamist and/or pan-Turkic in nature; con­vic­tions among jour­nal­ists like the estimable Sibel Edmonds and intel­li­gence and mil­i­tary offi­cers in Turkey and else­where that the Gulenists are fronting for CIA agents; that the Gulenist cadre engage as a mat­ter of course in ille­gal acts to destroy their oppo­nents, includ­ing numer­ous inci­dents of forgery and per­jury, as well as libel and propaganda. . . . . . . . .

Pourquoi le droit international humanitaire est (toujours) mal appliqué Créé il y a 150 ans, reconnu par la quasi totalité des Etats, le droit humanitaire reste une notion malmenée par la difficulté de son application. Le Monde | 22.08.2014 à 11h39 • Mis à jour le 25.09.2014 à 09h58 | Par Elvire Camus De l'Ukraine à la Syrie, en passant par l'Irak et la République centrafricaine, les conflits qui secouent la planète ont un point commun. Hormis leur nature destructrice, ils sont tous régis par le droit international humanitaire (également appelé droit humanitaire ou DIH), dont l'objectif est la protection de toutes les victimes de guerres. Ratifié par la quasi totalité des nations, le DIH fête vendredi 22 août les 150 ans de sa création. Décryptage du rôle du DIH, une notion simple dont la principale faiblesse réside dans la difficulté de son application. Le DIH, qu'est-ce que c'est ? Egalement appelé « droit de la guerre », le droit international humanitaire est un ensemble de règles qui encadrent les conflits armés. Comment est-il appliqué ?

Blog NetPublic L’informatique a une Histoire tout comme l’Internet dont on peine aujourd’hui à trouver des sites de référence faisant un travail d’information et de vulgarisation… pour mieux comprendre ce qui forge le numérique aujourd’hui. Le portail Histoire CIGREF est l’un des rares portails en France qui traite de l’Histoire de l’informatique et de l’Internet. Créé et mis à jour par le CIGREF (Club informatique des grandes entreprises françaises), ce site a la particularité de rendre disponible en ligne les archives de l’association et de balayer un vaste champ d’informations sur cette thématique en ayant soin de les expliciter pour un public néophyte que ce soit en images, en textes et en témoignages. (suite…) Turkey's Night of the Firebombs Across Turkey, coordinated attacks took place on 8 September against offices of the HDP—the People's Democratic Party. The HDP is not, strictly speaking, a Kurdish party—although that is how it is often described in the media. It was formed in 2012 when a group of left-leaning political organizations—all with firm pro-Kurdish views—decided to form an electoral coalition. The similarity with Greece's Syriza would not be unkind. The HDP holds fairly conventional leftist positions—against nuclear power, for LGBT rights, against discrimination of minorities, for women's equality. So why have its offices from Ankara and elsewhere been rampaged and firebombed? The obvious culprit—obvious, because they arrived with flags—were the Grey Wolves of the far-right Nationalist Movement Party (MHP). It is by now clear that other forces are lined up against the HDP, trying once more to link this capacious formation to the outlawed Kurdish Workers' Party (PKK). Where does the HDP come into all this?

7 signs Japan has become a 'demographic time bomb' | The Independent A Japanese soccer fan wipes her tears as Japan loses their 2014 World Cup soccer match against Colombia, at a public viewing event in Tokyo.Reuters/Issei Kato Japan is dealing with what economists call a "demographic time bomb." Through a vicious cycle of low fertility and low consumer spending, the country's economy has gradually shrunk over the last 25 years. People are living longer, and they're heaping greater social-security costs onto younger generations who aren't having kids to replace them — thereby furthering the cycle. Here are some of the most visible signs in daily life that the time bomb is ticking. Adult diapers outsell baby diapers. REUTERS/Yuya Shino Ever since 2011, sales of adult diapers in Japan have outpaced those of baby diapers. The trend reflects just how big the cohort of senior citizens is: People over 65 make up a larger demographic than any other in Japan. That proportion is up 3.7 percentage points from six years ago. 2016 marked a 117-year low for fertility.

Craftaholics Anonymous® - Crafting Support, Not Recovery Turchia: la sinistra kurda e ambientalista blocca la svolta autoritaria di Erdoğan L’HDP supera la soglia di sbarramento, gli islamisti costretti a un’alleanza con i Lupi Grigi? [8 giugno 2015] In Turchia non sono bastati gli attentati e i brogli denunciati in molte circoscrizioni per fermare l’avanzata della sinistra, e il presidente Recep Tayyip Erdoğan oggi non ha più la maggioranza assoluta conquistata dal suo Adalet ve Kalkınma Partisi (AKP – Partito per la Giustizia e lo Sviluppo) 13 anni fa, e mai persa fino ad ora. Il problema per Erdoğan è che nemmeno i Lupi Grigi dell’MHP – arrivati terzi con il 16,5% – vogliono quella Repubblica super-presidenziale che l’uomo forte della Turchia ha cercato di imporre al suo Paese con queste elezioni. Non a caso a festeggiare in piazza a Istanbul e Ankara è soprattutto la sinistra, sotto le bandiere multicolori dell’HDP che ricordano molto quelle della greca Siryza o quelle dei combattenti progressisti kurdi del Rojava in Siria. Probabilmente ha ragione Demirtas quando dice che il successo dell’HDP «è un dono per la Turchia.

World Population Clock: 7.5 Billion People (2017) World Population: Past, Present, and Future (move and expand the bar at the bottom of the chart to navigate through time) The chart above illustrates how world population has changed throughout history. View the full tabulated data. At the dawn of agriculture, about 8000 B.C., the population of the world was approximately 5 million. Over the 8,000-year period up to 1 A.D. it grew to 200 million (some estimate 300 million or even 600, suggesting how imprecise population estimates of early historical periods can be), with a growth rate of under 0.05% per year. A tremendous change occurred with the industrial revolution: whereas it had taken all of human history until around 1800 for world population to reach one billion, the second billion was achieved in only 130 years (1930), the third billion in 30 years (1960), the fourth billion in 15 years (1974), and the fifth billion in only 13 years (1987). Wonder how big was the world's population when you were born? Growth Rate 10 Billion (2055)

Les origines de l'EIIL, par un correspondant de guerre américain Des membres de l'EIIL. Capture d'écran de notre documentaire sur l'EIIL. Le travail d'Anand Gopal est de couvrir les conflits. Il a passé des années en Afghanistan en tant que reporter pour le Wall Street Journal, et dans quelques mois, il se rendra en Irak pour rendre compte du chaos auquel est confronté la région. Au lendemain du meurtre du photojournaliste James Foley par l'État Islamique, VICE a contacté Gopal pour avoir son point de vue sur la situation en Irak et les risques inhérents au travail de reporter de guerre. VICE : Vous avez vécu des années en Afghanistan, où vous couvriez la situation pour le Christian Science Monitor puis le Wall Street Journal. Bien sûr, il y a des risques, mais j'essaye de les modérer grâce à ma préparation et aux genre d'articles que j'écris. Vous avez interviewé des leaders talibans et de simples combattants, ainsi que des chefs de guerre afghans comme Gulbuddin Hekmatyar. Anand Gopal. Je ne pense pas qu'il y ait de solution facile.
