Burkina Faso President resigns amid protests, Lieutenant Colonel Zida announces himself as head of state 1.11.2014 DNA: Top News
Lieutenant Colonel Issaac Zida said on Saturday he was taking over as head of state in Burkina Faso, in an apparent putsch against the military chief of staff Honore Traore who had earlier said he would lead a transition. Burkina Faso's longtime President Blaise Compaore had resigned on Friday amid mass protests against his efforts to extend his 27-year rule, leaving two military factions vying for control of the West African country. Zida's statement, broadcast on Radio Omega FM, came after a resident living near the presidential palace in Ouagadougou reported hearing several minutes of heavy gunfire in the early hours of Saturday. "I assume from today the responsibilities of head of this transition and of head of state," Zida said in his statement, which he read in the studio of BF1 Television. The whereabouts of Traore was not immediately clear. He had announced that he would take over the presidency at a news conference shortly after Compaore's resignation on Friday, but had not appeared publicly ...

Cameron is wrong. Poppies muffle the truth about world war one

In 1924 the German artist Otto Dix depicted a skull, lying on the ground, a home to worms. They crawl out of its eye sockets, nasal opening and mouth, and wriggle among patches of hair and a black moustache or are they growths of grass? that still cling to the raw bone.

This horror comes from Der Krieg, a series of etchings in which Dix recorded his memories of fighting in the first world war. He was a machine gunner at the Somme, among other battles, and won the Iron Cross, second class. But he remembered it all as pure horror, as did other participants who happened to be artists or writers such as George Grosz, Siegfried Sassoon, Ernst Jünger and Robert Graves.

Allen Jones: I think of myself as a feminist 31.10.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
From his women-as-furniture artworks to Kate Moss in a gold breastplate, Allen Jones has always provoked controversy. Ahead of a major retrospective, he tells Nicholas Wroe about his fascination with fakery and fetish and why hes not a misogynist In 1969 Allen Jones , already well known as a pop art painter, produced a series of sculptures. Hatstand, Table and Chair comprise near life-size, hyper-realistic models of women squeezed into bondage gear, and incorporated into pieces of domestic furniture. Their appearance was greeted by impressive sales and outraged accusations of misogyny. They were the subject of a celebrated Spare Rib essay by film-maker Laura Mulvey, You Dont Know What Is Happening, Do You Mr Jones?, which drew on Freudian theory to brand the work as fetishistic and to essentially claim it was the result of a castration complex about which Jones was unaware. At the ICA in 1978 protesters let off stink bombs at a Jones exhibition, and on International Womens Day in 1986 a demonstrator ...

Jadavpur University students hold phase 1 of referendum on controversy over VC 31.10.2014 DNA: Opinion
The first phase of a students' referendum on whether Jadavpur University Vice-Chancellor Abhijit Chakrabarti should resign for calling in the police to break up a gherao on the night of September 17 was held on Friday. Around 87% students of the 2,900-strong Arts faculty voted during the two-day referendum. Chiranjit Ghosh, general secretary of the students' union told PTI that in the second phase of the referendum to be held on November 11-12, students from two other faculties of Science and Engineering would take part. To ensure transparency in the referendum they have also appointed external observers like Human Rights activist Sujato Bhadra. During the referendum, the question whether the VC should resign or not was asked to the students and their choice reflected on ballot papers. Such a referendum would, however, not have any official validity, but would build up pressure on the VC to put in his papers if the students vote against him. JU students have been protesting for over a month against the ...

Kerala High Court refuses to interfere with Kochi 'Kiss of Love' campaign 31.10.2014 DNA: Wide Angle
The Kerala High Court on Friday refused to interfere with the proposed 'Kiss of Love' programme here on November 2, being organised to protest moral policing, after the state government assured action will be taken in the event of any illegal activities. When two petitions seeking to prohibit the holding of the event by a group of Facebook users came up in the court, the government informed sufficient police would be deployed and action taken if any illegal activity took place at the event. Recording the submission, a Division Bench comprising Acting Chief Justice Ashok Bhushan and Justice AM Shaffique disposed of the petitions filed by two students of the Ernakulam Government Law College and the Sri Sathya Sai Orphanage Trust, Thiruvananthapuram. The petitioners submitted that the event was a violation of the provisions of the IPC and the Kerala Police Act and also against Indian culture. The law students wanted a direction to the Ernakulam District Collector and City Police Commissioner to prevent ...

Ha Lo (Chinglish) or Nei Ho (Cantonese)! 9.48am GMT The idea in 10 words: Skywalks that connect districts without touching the ground. 9.45am GMT The judges weigh in ... Dan Hill asks: Compelling presentation! And clearly a good initiative. What can we learn from it to enable other African (and other) cities to replicate? What was the breakthrough? Political will is the first, probably: Ethiopias government has a very strong development ethos and vision, and the wherewithal to implement it. I think the city government wanted to take the opportunity to really redraw the map of the city. Its not only the rail project that is underway, but also roads and buildings. Addis is getting a complete makeover, rather than a few adjustments. Again, this sits well with a strong political will that is committed to bringing about change - and all the better ...
