Stoic. Self-reliant. Unemotional. For many men, these watchwords of traditional masculinity still hold powerful sway. Men are less likely than women to seek help for mental health issues, they die by suicide more often, and they commit and are the victims of more homicides. Ronald F. Levant, EdD, discusses how cultural expectations of masculinity affect men's mental and physical health, how our ideas of masculinity have changed over time and what psychologists have learned about how to reach out to men.

From Napoleon Bonaparte's invasion of Egypt in 1798 to the foreign interventions in the ongoing civil wars in Syria, Yemen, and Libya today, global empires or the so-called Great Powers have long assumed the responsibility to bring security in the Middle East.  The past two centuries have witnessed their numerous military occupations to 'liberate', 'secure' and 'educate' local populations. They staged first 'humanitarian' interventions in history and established hitherto unseen international and local security institutions.  Consulting fresh primary sources collected from some thirty archives in the Middle East, Russia, the United States, and Western Europe, Dangerous Gifts: : Imperialism, Security, and Civil Wars in the Levant, 1798-1864 (Oxford University Press, 2021) revisits the late eighteenth and nineteenth century origins of these imperial security practices. It explicates how it all began.  Why did Great Power interventions in the Ottoman Levant tend to result in further turmoil and civil wars? Why has the region been embroiled in a paradox-an ever-increasing demand despite the increasing supply of security-ever since?  It embeds this highly pertinent genealogical history into an innovative and captivating narrative around the Eastern Question, emancipating the latter from the monopoly of Great Power politics, and foregrounding the experience of the Levantine actors.  It explores the gradual yet still forceful opening up of the latter's economies to global free trade, the asymmetrical implementation of international law in their perspective, and the secondary importance attached to their threat perceptions in a world where political and economic decisions were ultimately made through the filter of global imperial interests.

On June 12, 2016, Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old man, killed 49 people and wounded 53 more in a mass shooting at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, United States. Orlando Police officers shot and killed him after a three-hour standoff.In a 9-1-1 call made shortly after the shooting began, Mateen swore allegiance to the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and said the U.S. killing of Abu Waheeb in Iraq the previous month "triggered" the shooting. He later told a negotiator he was "out here right now" because of the American-led interventions in Iraq and in Syria and that the negotiator should tell the United States to stop the bombing. The incident was deemed a terrorist attack by FBI investigators.thefacthunter.comfacthunterradio.com

Episode 103 features an outstanding author of numerous baseball themed books and a visit with two wonderful restaurateurs and cookbook authors from across the pond. Erik Sherman writes exceptional baseball books.  Whether the books are about a specific player or a specific team, Erik provides wonderfully unique perspectives which baseball fans will enjoy.  His latest project will be a fine addition to your library.  In Two Sides of Glory:  The 1986 Boston Red Sox In Their Own Words, Erik provides a glimpse into something rarely seen.  Frequently, books are written about the winning teams, but how often does one have the chance to read about the losing team and learn of the individual players feelings as well as finding out about things happening with their lives.  All that and much more is in Two Sides of Glory.  The 1986 Boston Red Sox lost game six to the New York Mets in an unforgettable and devastating fashion and then proceeded to lose game seven and had to watch as the New York Mets celebrated and prevented them from winning their first World Series in 68 years.  The team was made up of some of the most well-known and talented players to ever wear their team's laundry and the stories and lesser known facts will make this an interview you will enjoy about a book you will not be able to put-down until the last page.  Enjoy part one and look forward to part two.Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich are a wife and husband team who opened their first Middle Eastern themed restaurant, Honey & Co in London, England in 2012.  Additionally, they are the authors of three cookbooks.  Their newest London restaurant is Honey & Smoke and their latest cookbook, filled with incredible recipes and beautiful photos is Chasing Smoke:  Cooking Over Fire Around The Levant.  We begin with a quick lesson on what is meant by the Levant and then get into a discussion of their lives which began in Israel and eventually brought them to London where they now provide their customers with delicious food at their two restaurants and one specialty grocery store.  The book takes the reader on a journey which includes their favorite cities as they collected recipes, stories, and the best of culinary culture along the way. The book is organized into five ingredient-led chapters (fruit and vegetables, fish and seafood, birds, lamb and other meats, and bread and unmissables).  If you have been wondering what else is possible to make over a live fire then this is the cookbook for you.  Despite the five-hour time difference, Sarit and Itamar managed to find the time to charm us as we spoke of everything, including their special relationship which works extremely well as they are a delightful force to be reckoned with.       We conclude the show with the beautiful song, "Baseball Always Brings You Home" from the musician, Dave Dresser and the poet, Shel Krakofsky.We recommend you go to Fifth & Cherry, https://fifthandcherry.com for wonderful cutting boards and http://www.baseballbbq.com for grill tools and clothing for barbecue and baseball fans and the Pandemic Baseball Book Club, https://www.pbbclub.com  to find many of the wonderful books we have featured as well as some additional swag.If you would like to contact the show, we would love to hear from you.Call the show - (516) 855-8214Email - baseballandbbq@gmail.comTwitter - @baseballandbbqInstagram - baseballandbarbecueYouTube - baseball and bbqWebsite - https://baseballandbbq.weebly.com Facebook - baseball and bbq

In Episode 2 of Transforming Luxury, BoF's new podcast presented by Klarna, we investigate what will inform the luxury product mix of the future. Indeed, the definition of a luxury good has expanded dramatically in recent years to now include a host of disruptive new categories, from the luxury sneakerhead culture that dominated the past decade, to collectibles, curios, NFTs and even some mass produced products capturing attention in the luxury market. Evolving consumer sentiment is also increasingly influencing luxury's manufacturing process. Today, customers demand brands and businesses authentically represent global cultures in a way that serves the communities themselves and not the industry's shareholders. They also hold brands accountable for the impact of their supply chains and production processes. Yet, workers' rights was among the worst-performing categories in BoF's Sustainability Index. To discover what this means for the future of the luxury goods industry, BoF assembled four global authorities to share their insight. Aaron Levant is an entrepreneur working at the intersection of fashion, culture, events and media. Levant co-founded streetwear and music festival ComplexCon, and streetwear trade show Agenda Today, Levant is CEO of NTWRK, a mobile-first video shopping platform — backed by Drake and LeBron James — that hosts events and exclusive, limited-edition product drops available to purchase immediately within its app. “For the last hundred years, luxury was easily defined as European couture — fashion houses who own the luxury space — and now, seemingly newer brands not only create luxury in their own right, but then collaborate with true luxury brands. I think the definition around luxury is ever evolving as for who fits in that category.” Zerina Akers is an American fashion stylist and costume designer. She is the founder of the self-funded e-commerce site Black Owned Everything and has worked as Beyoncé Knowles Carter‘s stylist, as well as costume designing the 2020 visual album, Black Is King, for which she won an Emmy in 2021. “Generally, many of these companies have benefitted from rap culture and imagery that we've created for them. We've created so much marketing for these companies and I'm just hoping that there continues to be real, sustainable change for them in the way that they shine light on our community.” Bethany Williams is a UK-based menswear designer with a focus on affecting social change. She founded her namesake label in 2017, won the Queen Elizabeth II Award in 2019 and the British Fashion Council and British Vogue Designer Fashion Fund in 2021. “For me, luxury is about having a product that you don't feel guilty owning. Luxury is about beautiful craftsmanship and the slowing down of the manufacturing process, working with artisans and supporting local community projects.” Fewocious is the youngest artist ever to be featured by Christie's — and the first to crash its site. He is one of the most successful and visible members of a growing community of crypto artists finding success in the NFT market, launching a shoe collaboration with design studio RTFKT earlier this year, with more than 600 pairs selling out in seven minutes and netting around $3.1 million. “With the NFT space, art can move. You can interact with art. There's programmable art, you can programme layers so that someone can change how your art looks [...]. There's so much I probably don't even know about yet, just because you can kind of do anything and figure out a way to attach an NFT to it, which I think is so rad and the future.” Follow the series to ensure you never miss an episode and discover actionable insights into the opportunities and challenges a redefined industry will bring and how luxury's transformation will impact your business.

Salmo 3: 8. Al arrepentirse y al reconocer la gracia salvadora de Dios, obtuvo la liberación. Jonás fue librado de los peligros del hondo mar, y fue arrojado en tierra seca.Una vez más se encargó al siervo de Dios que fuera a dar la advertencia a Nínive. “Y fue palabra de Jehová segunda vez a Jonás, diciendo: Levántate, y ve a Nínive, aquella gran ciudad, y publica en ella el pregón que yo te diré”. Esta vez no se detuvo a preguntar ni a dudar, sino que obedeció sin vacilar. “Levantóse Jonás, y fue a Nínive, conforme a la palabra de Jehová”. Jonás 3: 1-3 (Profetas y reyes, págs. 200, 201).No necesitáis ir hasta los confines de la tierra para buscar sabiduría, pues Dios está cerca. No son las capacidades que poseéis hoy, o las que tendréis en el futuro, las que os darán éxito. Es lo que el Señor puede hacer por vosotros. Necesitamos tener una confianza mucho menor en lo que el hombre puede hacer, y una confianza mucho mayor en lo que Dios puede hacer por cada alma que cree. Él anhela que extendáis hacia él la mano de la fe. Anhela que esperéis grandes cosas de él. Anhela daros inteligencia así en las cosas materiales como en las espirituales. Él puede aguzar el intelecto. Puede impartir tacto y habilidad. Emplead vuestros talentos en el trabajo; pedid a Dios sabiduría, y os será dada.Haced de la Palabra de Cristo vuestra seguridad. ¿No os ha invitado a ir a él? Nunca os permitáis hablar de una manera descorazonada y desesperada. Si lo hacéis perderéis mucho. Mirando las apariencias, y quejándoos cuando llegan las dificultades y premuras, revelaréis una fe enferma y débil. Hablad y obrad como si vuestra fe fuera invencible. El Señor es rico en recursos: el mundo le pertenece. Mirad al cielo con fe. Mirad a Aquel que posee luz, poder y eficiencia (Palabras de vida del gran Maestro, pp. 112, 113).Toda verdadera obediencia proviene del corazón. La de Cristo procedía del corazón. Y si nosotros consentimos, se identificará de tal manera con nuestros pensamientos y fines, amoldará de tal manera nuestro corazón y mente en conformidad con su voluntad, que cuando le obedezcamos estaremos tan solo ejecutando nuestros propios impulsos. La voluntad, refinada y santificada, hallará su más alto deleite en servirle. Cuando conozcamos a Dios como es nuestro privilegio conocerle, nuestra vida será una vida de continua obediencia (El Deseado de todas las gentes, p. 621).

In biblical times, how could one distinguish a Jew from a Samaritan by outward appearance? Where did Paul derive the information we read in 1 Corinthians 11:23-26? What do you think of the recent introduction of inclusive language in the New American Standard Bible? Might Thomas have been the “Twin” brother of Jesus? I could imagine a situation where a historical figure, increasingly understood as a more and more exalted figure, is equated and conflated with a mythical personage who developed separately, but is there a simpler solution? Assuming there was a common source, the "Q", why was he deleted, quenched, made to disappear? Unless it was Josephus? Does the Ipuwer Papyrus really verify Exodus? If the Romans fabricated the Gospel or adapted it, why did they pick the Levant as the source? What was the point of the “whole burnt offering”? Might the things that are said about Simon Magus have been based on things John the Baptist's disciples said about Jesus, according to the Mandeans? As to the apologetic technique of "interpreting the less clear passage by means of the more clear," is it legitimate to apply it to 2 passages within a single work, or within multiple works by the same author?'

We are left with a written tradition from a number of Greek writer but they were writing about a past some thousand years before their time. Modern attempts at understanding this period are even debated, which leaves us with our best guesses based off of what is found in modern research and what the ancients say.The Island of Sicily west of Greek lands would come into the Greek periphery as the Mediterranean was emerging out of the Dark Ages. Trade would once again begin to flow from the west as it had done during the Bronze Age to the Mycenaeans. Though, with the collapse of the Bronze Age much of this trade would be disrupted as various civilisations went into decline or disappeared completely.Though, as trade began increasing, more Greek cities would have been setting up their own trading connections at Sicily. Eventually, the various Greek city states would send out expeditions to found colonies on the island. This would provide relief with the over population problem that was beginning to occur in some of the larger cities, while also opening up more markets to the Greek mainland.The Greeks were not the only people present on Sicily, with it home to three separate indigenous cultures according to the written tradition. Also present was that of the Phoenicians, a civilisation originating in the Levant and the founders of the famous city of Carthage. They were also engaging in trade and establishing their own colonies. All these different peoples would for the most past during the 8th century BC, co-exist peacefully, but as time went on and more colonies emerged, interests would start to be encroached upon. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/castingthroughancientgreece)

For most people, climate change boils down to the simple fact that it's just a lot hotter than it used to be. And for people in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), those temperatures have been rising too fast.

Daf Yomi for Women – דף יומי לנשים – English

Study Guide Beitzah 3 This month's learning is sponsored by Rabbi Lisa Malik in honor of her daughter, Rivkah Wyner, "who recently made aliyah, and in memory of Rivkah's namesake, Lisa's maternal grandmother, Regina Post z"l, a Holocaust survivor from Lubaczow, Poland who lived in Brooklyn, NY during the post-Shoah stage of her life. Babi Gina's yahrzeit was on the 24 Elul. It is very fitting that Rivkah's first day out of biddud after her flight from the States & her first day of work was on her great-grandmother's 22nd yahrzeit. It is also so special that 24 Elul 5781 coincided with the Daf Yomi Siyum of Masechet Sukkah!  In Rabbi Malik's words, "Sukkot is the holiday that most reminds me of my grandmother, a true Eshet Chayil and my spiritual mentor, who used to serve her yummy fricassee, chicken soup, roast chicken, potato kugel, & broccoli kugel by placing the dishes in a bucket that was lowered by a pulley from the 2nd floor to the green faux malachite Sukkah in her backyard on East 8th Street and Avenue J in Midwood/Flatbush. My Babi Gina would be so proud of her great-granddaughter for making aliyah & the daily spiritual practice of Daf Yomi learning to which I have committed myself since January 2020. She would be especially proud that I am studying with a master teacher, the fabulous Rabbanit Michelle Cohen Farber, who also attended the Yeshivah of Flatbush.  I look forward to completing the next 3 masechtot while spending time with Rivkah in Jerusalem over the next 3 months!" Today's daf is sponsored by Dana Melzer in honor of her grandfather, Rev Ely Meltzer. "My grandfather was a devoted lifelong Talmud scholar and teacher." And by Deborah Dickson in honor of Ruby Levant's Bar Mitzvah this Shabbat. "Wishing a huge Mazal Tov to Audrey and Geri who are listening to the daf, and to the Levant family!" The gemara raises some questions on the third explanation of the mishna – that the issue with an egg laid on Yom Tov is because it is similar to fruits that have fallen off a tree. Rabbi Yitzchak says that the egg is forbidden so that people don’t think that one is permitted to drink liquids that drip out of a fruit. The gemara raises questions with this answer as well. After all four explanations are brought, they explain what issue each of them had with the other answers. They conclude that Rabbi Yochanan held by the opinions of Rabbi Yitzchak based on the way he resolved a contradiction between two mishnayot. There are two other possible resolutions to that contradiction. A braita is introduced that says that in a doubtful situation regarding an egg, the egg is forbidden. This is brought as a question against Rav Yosef and Rabbi Yitzchak’s explanations of the mishna as the prohibition is rabbinic and as such, in a situation of doubt one should be lenient! The first answer given is that the case is not relating to an egg that is laid but an egg that there is a doubt whether it came from a chicken that was a treifa. A question is raised against this from the continuation of the braita regarding laws of nullification. This is eventually resolved as well.

Islam has been at war since the earliest days of the faith. The Prophet and his followers first made war with the tribes of Arabia, uniting them around himself and his new monotheistic faith, but when he died a succession crises developed and Islam has been at was with Islam ever since. Despite waring with itself and creating many divisions and factions within Islam, they also have a long history of making war with non-muslims and conquering them in the name of Islam. In less than two decades after the death of Mohammad the caliphate had conquered the Persians and the mighty Sasanian Empire, expanding as for east as present-day Pakistan. They also defeated the Roman Empire and conquered Byzantine land in the Levant and North Africa. By the end of the Umayyad Caliphate just 120 years after the death of Mohammad, Islam had expanded to India in the east and to the Atlantic Ocean in the west. They had even pushed the caliphate into Europe. During this time a philosophy emerged in the caliphate that is known as the 'House of Islam and the House of War'. The House of Islam is all of the land under control of the caliphate, and the House of War was all of the world yet to be conquered. How was this philosophy used to justify the conquests of Islam, and how did war within the House of Islam prevent them from conquering much more than they did?

Since the Second Lebanon War in 2006, Israel and Hezbollah have not engaged in major hostilities. There has been a mutual deterrence whereby Israel and Hezbollah avert all-out war. However, this uneasy truce is weakening. Today, Lebanon is facing a dire economic and political crisis. Moreover, the development of the precision-guided munition (PGM) program persists as Hezbollah seeks to convert some of its estimated 140,000 rockets into accurate missiles, a serious threat for Israel. Moreover, Hezbollah has fired anti-aircraft weapons at Israel from Syria as the organization seeks to support Iran's presence there. Is deterrence unraveling and is a full-blown conflagration inevitable? Host David Makovsky discusses this major decision point with Hanin Ghaddar, David Schenker, and Amos Gilead.Hanin Ghaddar is the Friedmann Fellow at The Washington Institute's Geduld Program on Arab Politics, where she focuses on Shia politics throughout the Levant. Prior to the Washington Institute, she served as the longtime managing editor of Lebanon's NOW news website, where she shed light on the evolution of Hezbollah in Lebanon's political system and Iran's growing influence throughout the region.David Schenker is the Taube Senior Fellow at The Washington Institute. David served as Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs through January 2021.Amos Gilead dedicated most of his military career to the Military Intelligence Corps.

Ayer se levantó el paro en la segunda planta de UPM en Paso Centenario. Las obras estaban detenidas desde fines de junio. “Luego de varios días de mediación por parte del Ministerio de Trabajo y Seguridad Social, en la mañana de este lunes 12 de julio, la asamblea de trabajadores aprobó el acuerdo alcanzado entre las partes, y se retoma la operativa normal en toda obra de construcción”, comunicó la cartera que lidera Pablo Mieres. La medida se tomó por una denuncia por acoso laboral contra un mando medio de la obra. La frase puntual que disparó el problema fue: “A ver hasta cuándo aguanta esta minita”. Pero desde el Sunca se sostuvo que los malos tratos eran reiterados. Ya hace más de una semana se había llegado a un preacuerdo en la negociación tripartita, pero luego la asamblea de trabajadores lo rechazó. Finalmente sí aceptó las condiciones presentadas ayer. Hoy En Perspectiva, conversamos con el director nacional de Trabajo, Federico Daverede, quien participó de esa negociación.

Considered by Sunni Muslims as the second most authentic book after the Quran, Muḥammad ibn Ismā‘īl al-Bukhārī's collection of the Prophet's sayings and traditions, or ḥadīth, holds an esteemed station in Sunni scholasticism. To discuss with me the life, works and legacy of al-Bukhari is Dr. Jonathan Brown. Dr. Brown is the Alwaleed bin Talal Chair of Islamic Civilization in the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University. His PhD title and first book was "The Canonization of al-Bukhari and Muslim: the Formation and Function of the Sunni Hadith Canon".  Timestamps 02.25 Al-Bukhari was born 810CE in present day Uzbekistan almost 60 years after the Abbasid revolution and just after the passing of the fabled caliph Hārūn al-Rashīd and the start of the Fourth Fitna civil war between his two sons, al-Amīn and al-Ma`mūn. What do we know about his socio-political and cultural context and what impact would it have on his formation as a scholar? 15.53 Al-Bukhari travelled extensively to collect ḥadīth including to the Levant and Egypt and died in 870CE in his country of birth. Give our listeners an overview of his life before we look at his works and legacy. 27.10 Al-Bukhari is best known for his Ṣaḥīḥ collection. Before we look at that in detail, described to us his other works. 35.31 There has been continued doubts cast on how authentic are the traditions recorded in al-Bukharī's work. What are broader consideration and premises that should be borne in mind when trying to reconcile these views and where should listeners go next to learn more about al-Bukhari and his works? 01.02.13 You are the author of "Misquoting Muhammad: The Challenges and Choices of Interpreting the Prophet's Legacy", "Slavery and Islam" and other works.

The Seven Streams Method

Download Amos 1-2 We are in the Exile Stream starting the book of Amos. Yes, he's famous! We are reading from The Message this week. 7streamsmethod.com | @7StreamsMethod | @serenatravis | #7Stream | Donate Commentary by Dr. Drake Travis Lord of Heaven: It is numbing to see how bad and profane and sinful and willful people can be. May we be agents who operate against such darkness and call sinners to you.  Amen. Amos' prophecy is right around 750 B.C.  Isaiah is beginning his writings right on the heels of Amos. Amos was young as Jonah was in his twilight years - Amos could well have heard first hand of Jonah's revival in Nineveh that shook the known world.   Amos was among the earlier of the 17 OT prophets. He was a contemporary of Elisha, but young to have met Elijah.  Hosea was younger than Amos and would have continued upon Amos' departure.  Micah was also younger than Amos and would have some right after (as with Isaiah). For some historical perspective, the very first stones are being laid in a new area that would be called "Rome" following Romulus' celebration of their first military victory. [ There is about 30 years until the Northern Kingdom of Israel would be terrorized and cleaned OUT by Assyria, ] The Ionian Greeks founded the city of Naples on the Gulf of Naples about as Amos starts writing. Uzziah was king in Judah and Jeroboam II was king of Israel. For what it's worth, II Chronicles 26 is a contemporary chapter with Amos. It is of the years when King Uzziah was 'going askew". Amos 1 - 2: The word commences two years before "the BIG earthquake". It was terribly traumatizing for all in the land as it was talked about still, 200 years later, by the Prophet Zechariah as he compared the Amos 1:1 earthquake to the earth's final judgment which became mentioned by John in Revelation 16:18. Amos is reading 'the dirty lowdown' about and to the whole region: Syria, Gaza, Phoenicia, Edom, Ammon, Moab, Judah, and Israel.  Amos uses the same literative tactic employed in Proverbs 30: "there are three things, actually four..."   This adds intrigue as Amos drops the gavel on the rabble-rousing attitude of the leaders and people in the whole region east of the Mediterranean Sea that scholars call "The Levant" [luh-VAUNT] Damascus in Syria will be burned and busted, Gaza of the Philistines will be burned, devoured, cut off and killed.  Tyre will be burned flat as will Edom with her cities, along with the Ammonites as the Ammonite King and princes get exiled. Fire will consume Moab as God sees to it that the entire Royal family dies. Judah and Israel are none the less guilty.  They were given a covenant before God. They knew better and disobeyed with robust disgust!  So guess what... you guessed right --> Judah will be burned to the ground (much later than Israel, however) The judgment against Israel in much more "at hand" so it is detailed and stinging. Israel is oppressing its own people, prostitution is rampant, along with drunkenness, the Prophets are shunned.  Israel is slapping God in the face and doubly-arrogant about it.  So God is on the verge of crushing them. It will be a bludgeoning like they've never known - and they will not recover from it.

BALAAM WAS unable to curse Israel, but the people were lured into worshiping a god called Baal-Peor—with disastrous consequences. In His anger, God sent a plague that killed 24,000 Israelites. It was only stopped when Aaron's grandson, Phinehas, speared a young Israelite man and Midianite woman engaged in what was probably a fertility rite. We explain why this conflict was more than meets the eye, especially from our modern perspective. The Baal of Peor, a name that means something like “lord of the gates of hell,” was connected to veneration of the Rephaim, demonic spirits of the Nephilim called “Travelers” by the pagans in the Levant. This is reflected in the names of a station of the Exodus, Iye-Abarim (“ruins of the Travelers”), which was in the vicinity of Mount Nebo—which itself was called “this mountain of Abarim [Travelers]” (Num. 27:12). We also explain why we believe Baal-Peor was a title given to the creator-god of the Canaanites, El, who we believe is to be identified as Shemihazah, chief of the Watchers who came to earth and commingled with human woman—the story briefly described in Genesis 6:1–4 (see also 2 Peter 2:4–10 and Jude 6–7). In short, the episode recorded in Numbers 25 (with further explanation in Psalm 106:28–29) is spiritual warfare against the spirits of the Nephilim and the chief of the rebellious “sons of God” who created them.

Aujourd'hui, je vais vous parler du livre que j'ai choisi pour le mois de Juin 2021.Alors, à l'approche de l'été, j'ai eu envie de me plonger dans un roman d'aventure, et plus particulièrement, dans un univers de marins comme on n'en voit nulle part ailleurs !J'ai donc choisi le dernier roman écrit par l'amiral Loïc Finaz que j'ai eu le plaisir d'accueillir sur le Gratin, il y a peu (je vous conseille d'ailleurs d'aller l'écouter, c'est une vraie pépite !)Son roman La Houle s'en allait au levant ressemble un peu à un polar maritime. L'auteur nous embarque dans une mission secrète au bord d'un bateau pour suivre une femme mystérieuse et redoutable. On suit leur rencontre, leur conquête, on se rend compte très vite que ce qui se passe n'est pas ce qu'on attendait !Ce qui m'a marquée dans ce livre aussi, c'est l'envie d'évasion. Le personnage nous fait voyager à ses côtés dans un monde qu'on connaît peu, le monde de la mer des Açores aux Caraïbes, de la Nouvelle Angleterre à la Turquie. Il nous déclame son amour pour la navigation à travers les nombreux détails et les descriptions admirables du paysage marin ! Ce livre est particulièrement poétique et juste dans ses mots. En découvrant ce livre, j'ai été vraiment captivée par la beauté du style mais aussi par l'envie que procure cette histoire de prendre large et de s'aventurer sur la barre d'un bateau !Bref, une ode à la mer et au voyage que je vous invite vivement à lire ce mois-ci !

How ten years of conflict have destroyed the country's economy. As Syria prepares for largely symbolic elections to re-elect its President Bashar Al-Assad next week, we look at how ten years of conflict have destroyed the country's economy. Ed Butler looks at the growing evidence that Syria's government is now building its income around a multi-billion dollar trade in narcotics. He speaks to Syrian economist Jihad Yazigi, editor in chief of the online publication The Syria Report, Martin Chulov, The Guardian newspapers' Middle East editor and to Elizabeth Tsurkov, a fellow at the New Lines institute in Washington specialising in the Levant.
