Martin Sheen on US race divide

Martin Sheen says his passion for political activism has become more important than his acting: He says the Ferguson riots show that racism is a very prevalent part of the system... "we're further from each other now" than during the 1960s civil rights movement.

"My husband died in the Charlie Hebdo attack"

“He would leave post-it notes around and he would tell me ‘I did this today’, or he would say little words like ‘I admire your courage’ if I had a meeting in the evening that was quite difficult. He would say ‘I kiss your lovely smile’.” http://bbc.in/1EdILQe

This was my point exactly: moral degeneration. People can not find the right and wrong just insulting the others. The strong point of European culture is tolerance but Charlie and adepts of moral decay lost it in the way but insulting the others.

Shure, you'll never reach 100% safety on that. But there are different areas or also mentalities. Sounds strange but how to explain...question of culture? Zivilisation? How many people and why people meaning that it comes more, where mans have less respect on females. Am I wrong??

Scientists have unearthed the jawbone of what they claim is one of the very first humans.

How wolves helped us fight Neanderthals

Modern humans were able to wipe out their Neanderthal rivals in Europe with the help of early dogs bred from wolves. This is the finding of prominent US anthropologist Pat Shipman and she told BBC how we struck an alliance with the dogs.
