Fans were treated to a surprise appearance by season two runner-up Ali Stroker in this week’s Glee (4×14 – I Do) in her brilliant portrayal of Emma’s niece Betty. As well as this, after the end of the show Ali entered into a (very, very cute) relationship with fellow contestant Dani Shay.
What can you say? Awful to feel you have no other choice but to set yourself on fire. Algeria returns once again to haunt France.
A man burned himself to death in western France on Wednesday after losing unemployment benefits in a suicide that is becoming part of a worrying trend as the country struggles through tough economic times. The case of Djamal Chaab, whose application for jobless benefits had been rejected by the agency earlier in the week, has caused consternation in France. It is the latest in a growing list of job-related suicides to hit the country, which is struggling with low growth and record high unemployment.
Personal information about Chaab remains limited. According to reports in the French media, he was an Algerian national with a long-term residency permit and a trained metalworker. His death has heightened fears about France’s weak economy and a troubling trend of self-immolations.
