While other nations reach for their guns when they are attacked, France looked to its bookshelves Friday.
Bloody terrorist attacks in Paris dominated the discussions of top representatives of the Group of 20 (G-20) nations held Nov. 15-16 in Antalya, Turkey.

And as the barbarity of the Grim Reaper of jihadi terror swept across Paris on a Friday night, the polite Western world is jolted into action and awareness, facing these terrorists who are trying to turn the City of Light into the casbah of darkness and fear.
Argentines decide Sunday whether to end years of leftist government in a run-off vote that could see the pro-business opposition seize command of Latin America's third-biggest economy.

The tide of global rage against the Islamic State group lends greater urgency to ending the jihadis' ability to operate at will from a base in war-torn Syria. That momentum could also force a reevaluation of what to do about President Bashar Assad and puts a renewed focus on the position of his key patrons, Russia and Iran.
The general lack of awareness of medical matters, even amongst the educated, can lead to problems that become increasingly entrenched over time.
