NEWZ045 Europe’s Facepalm

Kenya gears up for elections; US Supreme court debates DNA sampling; Italian election gets confusing; Thai military signs peace deal with rebels; India announces new initiatives for women's safety;

It is election week on Newz of the World as this week we dive into the anticipated Kenyan general elections that are coming up and the disappointing Italian elections that just occurred. We also join the US Supreme Court in debating what good DNA sampling can do or not do. Elsewhere the word from southern Thailand is peace, but what does it mean for people of those three provinces long terrorized by an under-reported war. And finally India has announced a new fund focusing on safety for women. Rounding it all off is another edition of Newz Sources where this week we take a look at In conclusion we discuss some possible features of the upcoming Re:publica13 conference in Berlin where we will both be speaking.

  1. In der Folge gibts immer wieder mal komische Zwischentöne, vermutlich bei den Kapitelmarken. Hab die Folge über Instacast auf dem iPhone gehört. Vielleicht gibts ja noch andere die das nachvollziehen können?

  2. Thanks for another great show. Let me add a side note on the “womens class” of Dubai Metro. It is optional. No religious or whatever reasons. As a women, you can sit anywhere you wish, but if you wanted to travel in the “women and child only” part of the train (next to gold class) you could do so. Which is great, because it is often empty :)
    I always enjoy the Dubai Metro. It is uber-clean and there is WIFI, I wish we had a public transport like that in Germany…

  3. Die m4a-Datei im Direktdownload ist kaputt. Habe sie zwei mal geladen, weder QuickLook noch iTunes können was mit der Datei anfangen (Es wird auch kein Cover angezeigt). Die mp3-Version scheint zu laufen — zum Durchhören reicht mir das. Vielen Dank für eure Mühe.
