Issued on: Modified:
A photoshoot of Michel Sapin, the French finance minister, in a rowboat comes at a bad time with figures released today showing the French economy has flatlined in the second quarter. In French, the verb "to row" (ramer) is often used to describe a person who is struggling to deal with a situation. We also look at the hacking of Dmitry Medvedev's Twitter account as well as online reaction to the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri.
