Land of cheap drinks, seedy clubs, greasy takeaway restaurants - no trip to New Orleans would be complete without a few nights spent on the city's most notorious street. There's lots on offer and lots to see but planning is crucial or you'll likely be roped into all sorts of expensive mischief.

Saudi Arabia is not under any obligation to cut its production to help Iran, Venezuela, Russia or the US frackers in Texas and North Dakota. It suits Saudi Arabia if the frackers and shale oil producers are driven out of business.

"Start before you're ready" ... What does it mean? It means to "whisper #YOLO to the wind" and delve into something before all your cards are dealt, because, let's face it - so many of us wait for the right moment and that moment never comes.

Torture Is Torture - Regardless of Who Does It

James Snell | Posted 14.02.2015 | UK
James Snell

Some of these horrors make agonising reading - but it is incorrect to say that they defy description. In the cold, expressionless language of the Senate report, even blunt, mechanical phrases can contain the key to understanding a world of pain. 'Rectal feeding' is one. 'Stress position' is another. Through reams of inert prose, an appalling picture of abuse is built up and solidified.

The massacre of 142 people of which 132 were Pakistani children is absolutely inhumane. Many more are critically injured and we can expect to see the death toll rise. The devastation caused by the Taliban in Peshawar to the families of the victims is unimaginable.

Your campaign is beautiful and I am a firm supporter but the truth is that even if our tiny little island nation legalises every narcotic, psychedelic and hippy plant there will still be hundreds of thousands of kidnappings, mass murders and mutilated, decaying bodies left in the streets across Central, South and North America.

When Cities Have Skin in the Game

What is that makes a city a successful place to live, work and grow our families? The answer does not come easily and cannot be searched online. It is one of those dimensions of life that cannot be measured by economic indicators or employment figures. It needs more.

In 1992, Craig went into chicken farming to feed his family and be his own boss. He soon found he was anything but. And, after 22 years of farming, he has done something no one has done before.

NFL Expansion: How It Could Happen

Jack Target

The chances of expanding the league looks like it won't happen, at least for a long time. For a number purists out there the league is set perfectly of eight divisions of four in two conferences. But what if we did have an expansion? How would it work? How many teams would be needed to make it work? What cities would be awarded a franchise?

For me my trip was about freedom; momentarily escaping the hectic lifestyle we all lead in our day-to-day lives, and living for myself. I certainly found freedom in the vast, open spaces abundant in the region I visited. And I found in Las Vegas a different sort of freedom.

Reprieve recently filed a complaint with the UK government regarding BT's role in facilitating surveillance that leads to killing. BT has persistently refused to come clean on its collaboration with intelligence agencies. We can only hope that the UK government can get from BT the answers we deserve.
