Summary PIRATES IN PARADISEThe waters off Somalia in east Africa are the most dangerous in the world. 92% of pirate hijackings in 2010 took place there... over 1,000 hostages and 49 vessels were seized.Now it's threatening tourism and fishing, and therefore the livelihood, of the Seychelles, with the idyllic islands finding themselves thrust into the midst of the piracy crisis.But how does an island nation spread across an area the size of France police its seas? And how does it respond to the huge ransom demands when its citizens are seized?FREEDOM'S CALLIn the Middle East, speaking out against authoritarian regimes comes at a high price. In the shadow of the deadly revolution in Egypt, Yaara Bou Melhem reports on Syria's hardline stance against discontent.One 20-year-old blogger, Tal Al Mallouhi, ran three websites on which she wrote poems about freedom and social justice... she was detained by Syrian authorities and eventually accused of being a US spy.And it's not just young activists on the internet... Yaara also meets the son of an 80-year-old human rights campaigner, who's again behind bars for speaking out. He's been forced to move to Europe to campaign for his father's release.LAS VEGAS BLUESImagine having just 15 minutes to gather your possessions and get out of your home. It's a reality, not in a wartorn country, but in the glittering gambling capital of the United States, Las Vegas.Sergeant Deputy Patrick Geary has the job of evicting people who've failed to pay their rent and have nowhere else to turn for help. They're thrown out onto the street, with their children and whatever else they can carry.Others can't afford the rent on storage units containing their personal belongings... they lose it all to the highest bidder at a repossession auction.Miranda Grit reports for Dateline on the desperate unemployment crisis facing Las Vegas, where financial success or failure is traditionally seen as a litmus test for America's economy
