Sarkozy under pressure as French judges take to the streets | World news Thousands of judges and lawyers have taken to the streets in unprecedented protests against Nicolas Sarkozy, paralysing the legal system and shutting down almost all France's courthouses this week. Magistrates' unions have for days expressed outrage at the president by hearing only urgent cases, after the president used a shocking murder case to attack judges for being too lax. The gruesome Laetitia case gripped France after a teenage waitress disappeared one night after her shift in western France. The case struck a chord with Sarkozy's longrunning campaign to appeal to the rightwing vote by cracking down on repeat offenders. Judges were furious that Sarkozy would declare a suspect guilty before either a trial or the end of investigations. "It's an old habit of his, using people's legitimate feelings of outrage ... for ends that are clearly electoral and demagogical," said Nicolas Leger, national secretary of the USM magistrates' union.

Feedreader The End of the Line: How Overfishing Is Changing the World and What We Eat The End of the Line: How Overfishing Is Changing the World and What We Eat is a book by journalist Charles Clover about overfishing. Clover, a former environment editor of the Daily Telegraph (London) and now a columnist on the Sunday Times (London), describes how modern fishing is destroying ocean ecosystems. He concludes that current worldwide fish consumption is unsustainable.[2] The book provides details about overfishing in many of the world's critical ocean habitats, such as the New England fishing grounds, west African coastlines, the European North Atlantic fishing grounds, and the ocean around Japan.[3] The book concludes with suggestions on how the nations of the world could engage in sustainable ocean fishing.[3] Synopsis[edit] Fishing is occurring at an unsustainable rate. Official figures of global fish stocks have been wrong for several years. Critically endangered species of fish are still allowed to be fished. Crimes of omission are a cause in overfishing.

TopStyle Pro Disgruntled programmer sabotaged WikiLeaks submission system February 10, 2011, 2:55 PM — For all the efforts by the U.S. government and compliant corporations to undermine the effectiveness of WikiLeaks, the most damaging blow to the whistleblowing organization may have come from within. (Also see: The burgeoning whistleblower start-up sector) Reuters' Mark Hosenball reports: WikiLeaks's ability to receive new leaks has been crippled after a disaffected programmer unplugged a component which guaranteed anonymity to would-be leakers, activists and journalists who have worked with the site say. Details of the breakdown are contained in a book by estranged (Julian) Assange collaborator Daniel Domscheit-Berg which is due to be published on Friday, a source familiar with the contents of the book told Reuters. A WikiLeaks spokesman said the organization is suing Domscheit-Berg. Assange currently is in London, fighting extradition efforts by Swedish prosecutors, who are investigating alleged acts of sexual misconduct involving two women.

Bloglet Nokia Confirms Microsoft Partnership, New Leadership Team Ahead of its Strategy and Financial Briefing in London, Nokia has shared some details on what it plans to announce at the event. As expected, the company is aligning its strategy with Microsoft. By now, you’ve probably seen the ‘burning platform’ memo penned by the fresh CEO of the world’s largest mobile phone manufacturer, former Microsoft executive Stephen Elop (the existence of the brutally honest memo was first reported by TechCrunch Europe and later published in full by Engadget). In it, Elop addressed the company’s formidable competitors (Apple and Google with its Android OS strategy), who are consistently out-innovating Nokia and steadily taking over its market share. Clearly, Elop was gearing up for the announcement of some significant changes with regards to Nokia’s strategy going forward. He delivered. Here’s the meat: Windows Phone to become Nokia’s primary smartphone platform = huge. Nokia still plans to ship a MeeGo-related product later this year.
