Born and raised in Belgium, I have a bias. I went to the United States in 1996 to lead the NYSE's research and international departments and I became a U.S. citizen in 2009. After the Paris attacks, an insidious attempt to blame Belgium for the attacks struck me as (at best) ill-informed.
Witnessing this robust yet intricate system brings light to the plight of the bees and ourselves unless we adjust our human-centric perspective to one of stewardship. The world does not revolve around the human being.
It is cause for concern that France, with its proud identity as a bastion of civil liberties, is now joining a dubious list of governments that use security as a justification to cut down on individual rights.
In Provence, I chose the Luberon for its beauty, and for the most part, stayed in the villages to paint. The Chambres d'hotes were the most memorable and staying in the old farmhouses also provided painting material.

The struggle with jihadism is in fact a world war with multiple front lines scattered across the world's major cities. That conclusion is inescapable. It is not the Third World War, because it has little in common with the first two. It is therefore possible to say that this is the first "World War" fought by asymmetric forces simultaneously across the globe.
Would the result have been different had Turkey not chosen to shoot down a Russian plane which may have veered momentarily -- and this in the Turkish version, mind you -- into its territory? We'll never know.
You're right off the coast of Normandy, a speck of land in the cold waters of the Channel between France and England. A mere 25 miles west of the Cherbourg Peninsula of France, and 80 miles south of the British coast. A steep-sided and car-free paradise.
A few weeks ago, in the midst of the Greek crisis, a small team from a Greek Museum, the Museum of Cycladic Art, traveled from Athens to New York with a mission: to spread the story of a mystery.
Sometimes, a crisis strikes without warning. Sometimes, however, a crisis gathers more slowly and incrementally. Climate change is already a daily reality for my people, but without urgent global action to curb emissions, this growing crisis will spiral out of control.
"A vision that's becoming reality." Rainer Hundsdörfer, Chairman of the Board of Directors of ebm-papst, on the effects of climate change and deca...
Not all who are here, at the diet clinic in Cannes, are what you would consider "serious" about changing their lifestyles in the Anglo-Saxon sense o...
