He revolutionized the world of movies and television and he was the first movie critic to receive a Pulitzer Prize, in 1975, for the reviews he did for The Chicago Sun-Times.

Moldavian "war literature" examples

Business and human rights
The Triple Bottom Line
Whether they like it or not, transnational corporations are well known for their systematic violation of human rights. Think of the severe water shortages created by Coca-Cola in several states in India, the human rights abuses in Nigeria fuelled by Shell, or the labour exploitation that characterises the fashion industry. Of course, in the last years the international community has been taking action to tackle unethical business practices; however, the tragic events in Bangladesh have proven that the instruments and agreements currently in place are not enough to make corporations accountable for their misconduct... >>


Carbon Tracker's report
The Carbon Bubble: how to prevent the next economic crisis
In 2010, the United Nations climate change conference agreed that our current carbon emissions needed to be reduced if we wanted to avoid a rise of the global average temperature of more than 2oC above pre-industrial levels. The world's reserves clearly exceed the amount of coal, oil and gas we are allowed to use if we want to meet that goal. Even so, private companies and states continue investing in these industries.
