Is the majority of the future cancer "tidal wave" down to us? The World Health Organisation says the number of cancer cases will reach 24 million a year by 2035, but half could be prevented - and there is a "real need" to focus on cancer prevention by tackling smoking, obesity and drinking. Human behaviour such as sunbathing, inactivity and delaying parenthood are also linked. So how much is it down to us to take responsibility if we get cancer?

Why do we make heroes out of criminals? 

British criminal Ronnie Biggs, who took part in the 1963 Great Train Robbery, has died aged 84, his spokeswoman has confirmed.

Biggs was part of the gang which escaped with £2.6m from the Glasgow to London mail train on 8 August 1963.

Biggs divided opinion - with some people saying he was constructed a loveable rogue, while others described him as a violent criminal.

Why do we sometimes admire criminals?

I neither encourage nor admire criminals. Perhaps, people getting tired/vexed with ongoing system, admire criminals seeing they're breaking law, doing something that others don't dare to do. Maybe people admire for some other reasons. But to me if people get annoyed at ongoing socio-administrative system failure, they can organize a movement with a view to building up a new social order; & that's wise, according to me.

Thank you so much Ros, for such an insightful post.
Cheers!

Does Brazil still want to host the World Cup? After the protests and riots that struck various cities last month - at which many said they were angry at the cost of hosting the 2014 tournament - Fifa president Sepp Blatter has said Brazil may have been the wrong choice.

The country is renowned worldwide for its love of football, and its philosophy of Joga Bonito - the Beautiful Game. But is that enough? We'll be by the world-famous Maracana Stadium in Rio at 1700 GMT to find out.

Should medically assisted suicide be extended to children? That's the question for discussion in Belgium, one of the few countries in Europe where doctors are able to help the terminally ill to end their lives. Supporters believe this should be extended to children, but opponents say it is "insanity." 

What are your thoughts? Tell us here and listen at 1800 GMT

Coming up at 1030GMT we will hear from two protest camps in Cairo, where an operation is expected to begin to try and clear the thousands of pro-Morsi demonstrators that have been positioned there for over a month.
An interior ministry source said plans to break up the protest camps would begin around dawn, but there is as yet no sign of any police activity outside the Rabaa al-Adawiya mosque in eastern Cairo and at Nahda Square, to the west.
The Egyptian foreign minister, Nabil Fahmy, has told the BBC the demonstrations will have to end very soon because of the disruption they are causing. Mr Fahmy said the government was still hoping to resolve the situation through dialogue but if the police had to take action to clear the sit-ins, they would do so within the law.

The latest initiative may cause more violence & unrest in Egypt.
The possible solution isn't any clear one since the power has been snatched away from an elected governing body. And it wasn't done to give back power again.
Maybe we'll have to get ready to watch more blood, more violence in Egypt. I do not know if it's called revolution but I do not like huge death. I like peace, tolerance, progress - Egypt didn't show any of these in recent period.
