Nevada showdown

2:32pm EDT

We were on a bridge in southern Nevada in the midst of a tense standoff between the BLM and a group of angry ranchers, milita-members and gun-rights activists. It seemed as if we were a hair’s breadth away from Americans killing Americans right in front of me.


Times of protest

2:02pm EDT

On the streets themselves we have really needed eyes in the back of our heads. Some colleagues have been injured and had their equipment broken or stolen. Gas grenades, shotgun pellets, stones, and slingshots with glass marbles are the order of the day. So too are objects dropped from buildings - once someone even launched a sink out of a window.


A different kind of field trip

22 Apr 2014

Students at the General Yermolov Cadet School take all the same classes as their contemporaries would in any other Russian middle school. But there is a difference – pupils here are also given a military education. The state-run school is based in the southern Russian city of Stavropol, some 150 miles from the Olympic resort of Sochi. It is named in honour of Alexei Yermolov, the famous Russian imperial general, and the institution itself is as military-influenced as its name.
