Colombia Is Closer To Peace Than Ever Before - But I'm Holding My Breath

I first visited Colombia 10 years ago, when covering the demobilisation of right-wing paramilitary groups that had emerged some two decades earlier to fight Marxist guerrilla soldiers. Since then, I have remained very attached to Colombia and its fate. This month, and a decade on from my first visit, the Colombian government has signed a historic peace agreement with leaders of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, otherwise known as FARC. This accord brings Colombia closer to peace than ever before. Like everyone, who knows and loves Colombia, I wish both parties every success as they try to convert the deal from a piece of paper signed by old commanders tired of war, to a meaningful peace on the ground. But I hold my breath.

Last year on a trip to America I made sure to swing by 1329 Carroll avenue - or for those not in the know, the house from TV show Charmed. I started watching the show at a mere eight years old and accounting for the eight seasons of the show plus all the reruns on Netflix it was an awful lot of time to invest in a television show.

This was the moment I'd come to witness; Michael was going to suck his Swan's blood, a scene I'd witnessed in everything from Twilight to Dracula, but had never particularly wanted to watch in real life.

Investigating The Violent And Corrupt World Of Elephant Poaching

We also found that, over the last 10 years, trafficking ivory has become far more organised. Criminal gangs have now begun taking over the trade, drawn by the vast profits to be made particularly in the South East Asian market where ivory is seen as a status symbol. It is a startling realisation but - with the increasing demand for ivory in China and the Far East coupled with poor governance and corruption in Mozambique - if the Poachers maintain their killing rate their will be no more elephants in Mozambique in five years' time.

My Experience On The US-Mexico Border

Ross Kemp | Posted 14.09.2016 | UK Entertainment

The Republican candidate, Donald Trump, launched his campaign in a blaze of migrant condemnation, accusing Mexico of sending drug-dealers and rapists into the United States. His rhetoric might have got a bit more sophisticated but he still keeps pushing his proposal to build an 'impenetrable physical, tall, powerful, beautiful, southern border wall' 2,000 miles along the Mexican border... In May I went with the Extreme World team to the US/Mexican border to investigate the attitudes, views and motivations of the people involved in the issue, from those spending thousands of dollars and risking their lives to cross the border, to the smugglers and traffickers making millions from this massive business to the men and women who are paid to try and stop them.

As a long-time Vogue reader and a magazine junkie who has forged a career out of reading and writing about them, I was intrigued to see what the programme would reveal but also concerned about the approach that Macer might take. Alas my fears were justified.
