The urban sustainability has always been the Swedish business card and is also the theme of "The Forests of Venice" (the side event of the Fifteenth International Architecture Exhibition at the Venice Biennale of 2016) that promotes the interaction between nature and urban environment.

Just as Mariano Rajoy recently warned, Spain will likely face its third general election in less than a year after the two parties that secured the largest share of the vote in its latest poll again failed to strike a power-sharing deal. Despite being asked to form a new government by King Felipe VI after two inconclusive elections, Rajoy’s People’s Party (PP) has been unable to secure the support it requires from the socialist Partido Socialista Obrero Español (PSOE), even after months of drawn-out negotiations.
The latest news from Ulster, on 29th July, have been a stark reminder of the possible impact of the return of customs checks, while in Belfast clashes between communities are occurring even about flags hoisted in neighborhoods: loyalist protestant militants celebrated, near Annadale Flats, the fallen men of the UDA (the Ulster Defence Association, an armed organization that caused the death of many Catholics in the Nineties) placing a memorial plate along with a flag created to commemorate the Battle of the Somme.

A) A lot has been said on the international press on Turkey and while the majority of researchers' analyses are correct, we can’t help noticing a substantial one-sided coverage of the coup by western media. While it’s true that the government reaction to the coup has been impressive, western media seem to be focused only on one side of the story while overlooking other aspects.

The US has done similar things in the past and not for a coup d’état; more recently, France has established the same limitation of rights as a consequence of terrorism and for a longer time.

WASHINGTON, DC - After the dramatic night between last Friday and Saturday, Turkey remains in a very unstable situation. At least 6,000 people are detained over failed coup, as Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag said. In addition, 265 people were killed in clashes and riots during Friday’s night.
