Just one this week, but it’s highly anticipated and I may just buy it for “Video Games” alone…
Mahatma. Si ce jeune Indien n’arbore pas une fausse moustache comme ses autres camarades, la fine paire de lunettes dorées suffit à donner la ressemblance avec le Mahatma Gandhi. Dimanche dernier, c’est quelque 500 enfants issus des castes inférieures qui se sont habillés comme celui que l’on surnommait Le Père de la Nation indienne, assassiné par un nationaliste hindou le 30 janvier 1948. Philosophe, avocat mais aussi politicien, Gandhi est toujours considéré comme l’une des icônes de la lutte pour les droits civiques. Inspirés par ses idées, des hommes et des femmes ont perpétué son combat, comme Martin Luther King aux Etats-Unis ou Nelson Mandela en Afrique du Sud. (AFP)
The littlest Gandhi. Ok, he doesn’t have the mustache. But it is easy enough to see that this young Indian is the spitting image of Mahatma Gandhi. Last Sunday, 500 Indian children from the lowest caste dressed up like the infamous civil rights leader to mark the anniversary of his assasination in 1948. A philosopher, lawyer and politician, Gandhi is considered an icon of the non-violent fight for civil rights and inspired such leaders as Martin Luther King in the United States and Nelson Mandela in South Africa.

Afcon Hosts Gabon Make History
Africa Cup of Nations co-hosts Gabon finished the group stages with a perfect record after a 1-0 victory over Tunisia in Franceville on Tuesday night.
Both sides had already booked their place in the quarter-finals before this encounter. For Gabon it is only the second time they have managed this feat, having previously reached the Last 8 stage in the 1996 finals in South Africa.
Talisman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got the only goal of the game for the home side in the second half, his third in three matches at this year’s tournament.
Tunisia dominated the early stages with Issam Jemaa and Youssef Msakni going close, before Wissem Ben Yahia fired in a stunning drive that went just over the angle of crossbar and post.
Saber Khelifa found the side-netting for the North Africans, while Gabon’s first real chance came after the half-hour mark as Andre Poko headed wide of the target from Roguy Meye’s cross.
The opening goal arrived on 62 minutes when Aubameyang beat Rami Jridi, though the Tunisian goalkeeper will believe he should have stopped the shot.
