'No justice, no peace'

 US police say they have made multiple arrests in protests in Cleveland after an officer was cleared over the fatal shooting of an unarmed black couple.

A protester is arrested after the acquittal of Michael Brelo, a patrolman charged in the shooting deaths of two unarmed suspects on 23 May 2015, in Cleveland.

Unrest follows US police acquittal   At least a dozen people have been arrested in the US city of Cleveland during protests after an officer was cleared of all charges relating to the killing of an unarmed black couple. Police appealed for calm after unrest continued into Saturday night. Michael Brelo was cleared of voluntary manslaughter in the 2012 incident, when he fired 15 shots into their car. A string of high-profile police killings of unarmed black people have sparked civil unrest in the US . Mr Brelo was one of 13 officers to open fire on Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams during a high-speed car chase. But he was the only one to face charges because he climbed onto the bonnet of their vehicle and fired directly through the windscreen at the pair who were no longer deemed a threat. The chase began after police heard what they thought was a gun discharge - but turned out to be the sound of the couple's Chevy Malibu backfiring - as they sped past Cleveland police headquarters. No gun was found inside the car, and Russell and Williams were each shot more than 20 times. 'No justice, no peace' On Saturday a judge at the court in Cleveland said that because other officers had fired in a 137-shot barrage, he could not rule beyond reasonable doubt that Mr Brelo was responsible for the deaths.  Video Cleveland verdict sparks protests   Video Victim's sister: 'Those officers were upset'  Full article Unrest follows US police acquittal

Iraq volunteers start Ramadi push

About 3,000 militia members in Iraq begin moving against Islamic State militants after the fall of the city of Ramadi last week, officials say.

About 3,000 militia members in Iraq have begun moving against Islamic State militants after the fall of the city of Ramadi last week, officials say.  The pro-government forces say they have retaken Husayba, east of Ramadi. Ramadi - the capital of Anbar province - is only 110km (70 miles) west of Baghdad . Its fall was seen as a major embarrassment for the government. About 500 people died in the city, and more than 40,000 - a third of the population - have fled. Analysis: John Simpson, BBC World Affairs Editor, Baghdad It looks very much as though the operation which has begun near Ramadi in Anbar province is being carried out without much involvement by the Iraqi army. Last weekend 200 Islamic State fighters captured Ramadi from 10 times that number of Iraqi army soldiers. Military observers here maintain that the army simply doesn't have the determination to match the commitment of Islamic State, and that the so-called Popular Mobilisation forces are the only ones with the necessary drive and determination.

'Israel row' sinks UN nuclear talks

A UN conference aimed at preventing the proliferation of nuclear weapons ends in failure after a row over a nuclear-free Middle East proposal.

A UN conference aimed at preventing the proliferation of nuclear weapons has ended in failure after a row over a nuclear-free Middle East proposal. The Egypt-backed plan had envisaged a regional forum which analysts say might have forced Israel to reveal whether or not it has nuclear weapons. The proposal was blocked by the US , the UK and Canada . The next review is set for 2020. Israel neither confirms nor denies it has a stockpile of nuclear weapons. Egypt 's warning Speaking after four weeks of negotiations, US Under-Secretary of State Rose Gottemoeller accused Egypt and other Arab countries of "not willing to let go of these unrealistic and unworkable conditions" for future talks. She also said some participants tried to "cynically manipulate" the whole process. But Egypt warned that the failure to reach a deal "will have consequences in front of the Arab world and public opinion", the Associated Press news agency reports. Last month, Egypt had proposed to stage a regional conference - with or without Israel 's participation and without an agreed agenda. Some analysts suggested that this move might have forced Israel - which is not a party to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) - to publicly clarify its position on nuclear weapons.   Which countries have nuclear weapons?

US Senate blocks surveillance bill

The US Senate has blocked a bill that would have ended the bulk collection of Americans' phone records by the National Security Agency (NSA). It also failed to authorise a temporary extension of the current legislation. Senators are to meet again on 31 May - a day before the bill is due to expire. A US appeals court has already ruled the bulk collection illegal. The NSA's spying was leaked by Edward Snowden, a former NSA contractor who has since fled to Russia . The NSA has collected data about numbers called and times, but not the content of conversations. It also allegedly spied on European firms. Among individuals targeted was German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The White House has pressed the Senate to back the a bill passed by the House of Representatives - the Freedom Act - which would end bulk collection of domestic phone records. These records would remain with telephone companies subject to a case-by-case review. The 57-42 Senate vote fell short of the 60-vote threshold. Another vote held over a two-month extension to the existing programmes - Section 215 of the USA Patriot Act - also failed to reach the threshold.

Malaysia finds 'migrant' mass graves

Authorities in Malaysia find several mass graves near the border with Thailand suspected of containing the bodies of trafficked migrants.

Rohingya migrants have their breakfast at a temporary shelter in Bayeun, Aceh province, Indonesia 24 May 2015.

Several mass graves thought to contain bodies of migrants have been found in Malaysia , authorities say. Home Minister Zahid Hamidi was quoted by Malayia's Star newspaper as saying the graves were found in 17 abandoned trafficking camps near the Thai border. He did not know how many bodies had been recovered. Several mass graves have been found in Thailand along a route used to smuggle Rohingya Muslims fleeing persecution in Myanmar (also known as Burma ). But these would the first discovered in Malaysia . Thailand has already launched a crackdown on the trafficking networks. An investigation by the BBC's Jonathan Head has found entire communities in Thailand helping the traffickers. The Thai trafficking networks, he found, bought boatloads of migrants from other smugglers and held them in the jungle until their families paid a ransom. Many migrants are believed to have perished from disease or starvation. Every year thousands of people are trafficked through Thailand and into Malaysia . The latest graves were found near Padang Besar and Wang Kelian in the Malaysian state of Perlis, Malaysian newspaper reports said. Utusan Malaysia newspaper cited unnamed sources as saying about 30 mass graves had been found containing "hundreds of skeletons".

I (almost) got away with reporting lies

A prominent French-language foreign correspondent has been suspended by several of his employers following a report he fabricated and embellished some of his stories. 

Franois Bugingo

A prominent French-language foreign correspondent has been suspended by several of his employers following a report he fabricated and embellished some of his stories.

Foreign correspondent suspended by media outlets after report he fabricated stories   The radio station 98.5 FM and Groupe Mdia, which owns Le Journal de Montral, Le Journal de Qubec and the television network TVA, released separate statements Saturday saying Franois Bugingo was suspended indefinitely, pending a review of the allegations against him. Both statements noted Bugingo was a freelance contributor, not a full-time staff member. Bugingo, who was born in Congo , is a high-profile  Quebec journalist who has covered conflicts around the world for TV, radio and print publications. The suspensions come following a La Presse report alleging Bugingo fabricated and embellished some of his stories dating back to  Sarajevo  in 1993. In one instance, La Presse says Bugingo fabricated a story about how he helped negotiate the release of a journalist held hostage by Al-Qaeda in Mauritania in 2010. In an interview with La Presse a year later, he recounted how he was threatened by Al-Qaeda terrorists as airplanes circled overhead. "If those planes shoot [at us], we're going to kill everyone," Bugingo claimed he was told.

One Square Mile of Canada

Montreal is a French island in a predominantly English-speaking country

It's known as La Main - "The Main" - and it's the lifeblood of Montreal . For the past three centuries this sweeping avenue, Boulevard St Laurent, has shaped the character of a city in the heart of French-speaking Canada . La Main was once the symbolic dividing line between the city's French and English speaking communities, with the boulevard a soft buffer attracting and absorbing waves of new immigrants. Today, it celebrates a cosmopolitan city with its array of little villages, from the Quartier Chinois, or Chinese quarter, to Little Italy and Portugal , along with strong remnants of an historic Jewish quarter.

What does it mean to be Canadian?

 With Asian trade and support for the monarchy rising, what does Canadian identity mean now?

After all, they already killed millions of us since they arrived here.

1. Integrity and reliability are the most important quality that a public employee especially that of a politician should maintain otherwise the institution gets corrupted. 2. Poor immigrants are the greatest investment a country like Canada should bring in for they are motivated by dreams that money immigrants already have. We brought (in) lots of those money immigrants in the 80s from Hong Kong and surrounding areas, most settled in BC, did they bring their money to Canada ? No, they fried us with our own oil and most of the locals moved to nearby towns where the cost of living is much lower than where those so called investors settled in. But, where are those people now? They are back where they came from with our passports. Would you want to know more and why? Conrad David Brillantes

Oh Canada How I Love You

The tour was to only last one hour. While the other educator and I waited for their arrival we decided we would not visit the Canadian galleries, since they were in another pavilion at the other end of the museum. We would choose the European Art collection to save time. They arrived twenty minutes late. My group had three mothers with eight children between the ages of two months and nine years old. Two Muslim mothers dressed in hijab and long over-... Quickly it was decided, even though time was limited, that we had to go visit the Canadian galleries. We showed the paintings, sculptures and objects from the Inuit, First Nations along with the first settlers from France and England . The children were mesmerized, listening to the legends and stories of the Canadian people. The mothers asked many insightful questions. As we toured from one gallery to the next, the mother from Benin began unapologetically to nurse her son. She didnt ask for help or lag behind. She did what came naturally and continued to be an active participant. And the two other mothers? They held the infants head as she went to adjust her top and looked after her other child. Mothers from different parts of the world, nurturing, protecting and caring for one another. I witnessed the actions of a community. Being an Art Educator at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts affords me the opportunity to meet and interact with many people from all walks of life. I am very fortunate to live in a country where all people have equal rights and are valued for their uniqueness.

Greece 'cannot afford IMF repayment'

Greece will not be able to make a debt repayment to the IMF due in early June as it does not have the money, the interior minister says.

A European Union flag and a Greek national flag flutter in Athens

Greece cannot make a repayment to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) due on 5 June as it does not have the money, the interior minister says. "The four instalments for the IMF in June are 1.6bn, this money will not be given and is not there to be given," Nikos Voutsis told Greek TV. Greece has to come to a deal with the IMF and EU to secure the final tranche of its bailout from the institutions. The finance minister meanwhile told the BBC that progress was being made. 'Do their bit' Yanis Varoufakis said Greece had worked hard to meet its end of the deal with its lenders, and that now it was up to the international institutions to reciprocate. " Greece has made enormous strides at reaching a deal," he told the Andrew Marr Show. "It is now up to institutions to do their bit. We have met them three-quarters of the way, they need to meet us one-quarter of the way." Is Greece close to Grexit?

'Rosetta Stone' for prostate cancer

 Scientists have unveiled a comprehensive genetic map of advanced prostate cancer, hailing it as the disease's "Rosetta Stone".

Prostate cancer

The study, published in the journal Cell, shows that nearly nine in 10 men had gene mutations that could be targeted with drugs. The study was led in the UK by scientists at the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) London in collaboration with several teams in the United States . Researchers analysed the genetic codes of tumours from 150 patients with metastatic - or advanced - prostate cancer, whose disease had spread to other parts of the body. They found that 89% had genetic aberrations for which there were existing drugs or treatments undergoing clinical trials. Prof Johann de Bono, of the ICR and Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust told the BBC: "This is truly a game-changer. We are calling this prostate cancer's Rosetta Stone, because we can now decode the disease for the first time. "In the past, we used to treat lethal prostate cancer as a single illness but this shows that it is a group of diseases, each driven by their own set of mutations." Prof de Bono said it meant that, using genetic testing, it would be possible to individualise patient care, heralding the arrival of personalized treatment for advanced prostate cancer.    Ebola crisis prompts $100m WHO fund    End of Ebola?

A More Perfect Union Crossing Political Lines for Patriotic Wit and a Bi-partisan Love Affair

Carlsbad, CA, May 18, 2015 Take two political leaders from opposite parties, put them head-to-head running for president while they fall hopelessly in love, and what do you get? You get A More Perfect Union, by RW Richard, a political romp, full of patriotic wit, and the real future in which a woman will attempt to break the political glass ceiling by running for president. A More Perfect Union transcends anything we've seen in our current government. The author's presidential face-off is between a former beauty queen and a former MLB slugger. In-between the pages of this hilarious read, it's natural to see that we truly are more alike than not, and in the best interest of the
Union , we will know peace when we know love. "As unusual as it might seem, my protagonists are two patriots from opposing political parties, republican and democrat," says RW Richard. "Not once in this story are they corrupted, petty or engage in back-stabbing, activities that make you wonder why we elect our public officials. They're still left with many problems to solve, let alone how-to balance their feelings for each other with the needs of the country."  The story features segments of some of the media's greats including:      FOX's Bill O'Reilly as 'Chris O'Reilly'      MSNBC's Chris Matthews as 'Bill Matthews'      Anderson Cooper as 'Scoop Anderson'      CNN's Wolf Blitzer as 'Blitz Wolfer'      Chris Harrison from The Bachelor and David Letterman from the CBS Late Show play themselves.

All Questions or inquiries submitted are not edited...posted as they are received. Question: Why on earth the Separatist government of  the late Rene Levesque created the language law known as Bill 101? Answer: Actually, Robert Bourassa, Quebec Premier then started the controversial language law (Bill 22) which was duplicated and made it more complicated by government of Levesque. Note that Bill 101 was declared not valid by the Supreme Court of Canada but because of the veto option given to all provinces under the unfinished Canada constitution headed by Brian Mulroney, precipitated when Pierre Trudeau, prime minister of the day brought home the BNA (British North America Act - Canadian Constitution) to Canada, Quebec was able to maintain the law (Bill 101) ...  

Bringing back the glory that of Montreal

Everything is irrelevant when talks about making Montreal a solvent city again without considering lowering of taxes, especially on commercial, as well as private properties and most of all changing the language law, in permitting the free use of English in business. Otherwise, the city will run out of energy to support its existence. Everything that started good fifty years ago to becoming the most economically stable cities in the world had been taken down by the hatred sentiment of the so called nationalists who basically put a great number of residents in poverty mostly composed of the French Speaking Quebecois. And hey,  labor unions played most of the problem. Look around commercial areas and you'd see the gloomy picture of the city and that of the suburbs, plus the more than 30,000 homeless people in the city. Speak up people! cdb  

The day the economic dim light hits Montreal

Looking back at 40 years of French as Quebec's official language

The passage of Bill 22 in 1974 may have been in response to language tensions in St-Lonard, a predominantly Italian-immigrant neighbourhood in Montreal . However, it fanned the flames between Anglos and Francos, leading to what is arguably Quebec 's most hotly debated piece of legislation ever: Bill 101. (Radio-Canada archives)  On July 31, 1974 exactly 40 years ago  French became the only official language in Quebec . A war of words and principles raged between anglophones and francophones at the time. Anglophones fought to preserve their rights while more and more French-speaking Quebecers lobbied for better protection of their language, particularly with regard to the francization of immigrants. That edict, introduced by Robert Bourassa and his Liberal government, was meant to remove any ambiguity about language in the province. It was known as Bill 22, the precursor to Bill 101 that came three years later. The 1960s were a time of major changes in Quebec , like elsewhere around the world. Here, we became aware of some gaps in the protection of the French language, said Office qubcois de la langue franaise spokesman Jean-Pierre Le Blanc. Groundwork on bills 22 and 101 was laid during the Quiet Revolution of the 1960s. The Parti Qubcois was created in 1968 amid the language turmoil; a year later, the Union Nationale government led by Jean-Jacques Bertrand adopted Bill 63, which would go on to become An Act to promote the French language in Qubec. St-Lonard Conflict The flames of language debates in the province were stoked by what has come to be known as the St-Lonard Conflict, which came to a head in 1968. The conflict began when an act was passed to phase out English instruction from schools in the predominantly Italian-immigrant neighbourhood. Bill 63 was passed in 1969 as an attempt to smooth out thorny relations between Montreal s Italian community, the province and Quebec francophones. That law had provisions promoting French in education, including offering French courses to new immigrants. It also permitted parents to choose whether their children received English or French instruction. That law was superseded by Bill 22. FROM THE ARCHIVES | Riots in St-Lonard

A what? A $15 per hour minimum wage? For Quebec it's bad news for business - Montreal is already bankrupt. Given another 10 years, half of the city is going to be deserted, yes, just like Detroit ...Government should create a commission composed of business and economics students headed by professors to find out how the province can get out from it's present economic predicament.

Still Life, Vase with Daisies, and Poppies by Vincent Van Gogh

Van Gogh's striking canvas is dominated by the red of the poppies

A floral masterpiece by Vincent van Gogh, painted in the closing stages of his life, has sold in New York for $61.8m (38.7m). Still Life, Vase with Daisies, and Poppies exceeded its estimate of up to $50m (31.3m) at the Sotheby's auction. A 1951 piece by Swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti fetched more than $100m (62.7m), but fell just short of the record $104.3m (65.3m) for the artist. A sculpture by Amedeo Modigliani set a new benchmark for his work. Tete, an elongated head created in 1911-12 from a block of limestone scavenged from a Paris building site, was sold for more than $70m (44.2m). Van Gogh's painting was created at the French home of his doctor just months before his death in 1890 and was one of the few works he sold during his lifetime. But it fell far short of the auction record for a piece by the Dutch artist, which stands at $82.5m (51.6m). Sotheby's said the painting was bought by a private bidder from Asia . Portrait of Dr Gachet - the physician whose flowers he captured in this latest work to sell - went under the hammer for a record in 1990.

Monet and Picasso among art theft

Paintings by artists including Picasso, Matisse, Monet, Gauguin and Freud have been stolen from a museum in Rotterdam . Police in the Netherlands said the works were taken from the Kunsthal Museum early on Tuesday morning. The museum is showing works from the Triton Foundation as part of its 20th anniversary celebrations. The paintings include Monet's Waterloo Bridge , Picasso's Tete d'Arlequin, Matisse's La Liseuse en Blanc et Jaune and Freud's Woman with Eyes Closed.  Monet water lilies sells for $43 million    Monet artwork bequeathed by reclusive heiress  "Madame Leon Clapisson": The visualization (right) is produced using advanced image processing software - Conservation scientists in Chicago produce a stunning visualization of how they think a Renoir painting might have looked before its colors faded. Researchers in Chicago have produced a visualization of how they think a Renoir could have looked before its colors faded. The picture of Madame Valentine Clapisson was painted by the great French Impressionist more than 130 years ago. The original's impact has been degraded and dulled by the action of light. But by using the latest analytical tools, conservators have been able to recover a sense of Renoir's rich reds."When we first brought this picture into the conservation studio for examination and removed the frame, we noticed that at the top and at the left-hand side there was a sliver of very intense colour," recalls Dr Francesca Casadio from The Art Institute of Chicago. "This tipped us off to the fact that the mood of this painting that is now pretty cool and restrained with light purples and blues was once far more vibrant," she told BBC News.
