For months, we?ve been treated to morbid ?daily death numbers? ? but for only one cause of death. Perhaps if these figures had been reported for all causes of death, people?s risk perceptions would be less skewed.

Apple is planning to use a new technology (called CSS or Client-side scanning) which would enable it to detect the presence of any given document on any private Smartphone, regardless of whether that document has been shared or not. Apple doesn't need to scan through all the data; it simply identifies the signature of the documents it is looking for. The company's purported aim is to weed out material with a pedophile content. This system - if accepted for the noble purpose of protecting (...)

The Iraqi legislative elections were boycotted by 59% of the citizens. The population is aware that the system is rigged, that foreign powers are calling the shots, that corruption is rife among the elites and that the militias do not abide by the law. It therefore lends no credibility to so-called democratic institutions. The 41% of voters who showed up at the polls upset the political balance. The party of Muqtada el-Sadr (nationalist Shiite) [photo] received the largest number of votes. (...)

In the global imagination, Facebook would be a responsible social network that allows everyone to connect confidentially while censoring messages contrary to local laws. In practice, it is quite different. Facebook collects information about you for the NSA, censors your opinions and mints its own currency. In a few months, this company has become one of the most influential players in world politics.

According to the Swiss Le Temps, the Lebanon Central Bank had known since 2016 that the country was headed toward bankrupcy . Sensitive information was covered up by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) at the request of Riad Salameh. So, inexorably, the predicted disaster came to pass. On 9 April 2016, the IMF representative for Lebanon, Spanish national Alvaro Piris, submitted an interim report to Central Bank governor Riad Salameh. This document sounded the alarm bells. However, at Mr. (...)

The human cause of global warming is a highly contested theory in scientific circles, but not by the United Nations, which has a group of experts responsible for formulating public policy in scientific terms, the IPCC. The German government and the owners of the Metro retail group fund the MCC in Berlin, which goes much further. These bodies promote nuclear power as an "ecological energy source".

In this context, the Center for American Progress, Washington's leading liberal think tank, has just released a report on China's strategic inroads in Africa . It aims to reformulate (...)
