Italian Democratic Party leader Matteo Renzi has formed Italy's new government, saying the broad coalition aims to give the economically-strapped country "hope." Renzi, who had been serving as Florence mayor, will be Italy's youngest premier when he and his Cabinet are sworn in on Saturday. Renzi said Friday he's aiming to give a "strong message" to the international community that his government will enact electoral and economic reforms quickly. Achieving the post through a Democratic Party power grab, Renzi will be the third straight premier to come into the office without being elected. The last premier who stood for election was Silvio Berlusconi in 2008.

Metallica fans despair: The band looks to have lost 250 riffs. Their guitarist Kirk Hammett said in 2012 he'd come up with some 400 riffs for the band's forthcoming 10th album but he's just admitted 250 of them were recorded to a smartphone he lost six months ago. he told Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta in an interview transcribed by Blabbermouth, “I put riffs on my iPhone, but something very unfortunate happened to me about six months ago. I lost my iPhone [containing] 250 musical ideas. And I was crushed. It didn’t get backed up.” Although Hammett thinks "it still might turn up," that sounds unlikely - and he says he can only remember about eight of them. Nevertheless, he said that the new album is "super riffy, super heavy" and is starting to sound a lot like 2008's Death Magnetic while also reminding him of ...And Justice For All from 1988. While he gets back to the fretboard drawing board we've got one word for him: iCloud.
It may sound counter-intuitive after the Euroskeptic Finns Party grabbed second place in Finland's general election, but a surge by anti-establishment protest groups sweeping Europe may be peaking. With the exception of Greece, where a five-year depression propelled far left, anti-bailout Syriza to victory in January, radicals are unlikely to win power outright in any other European Union state this year, opinion polls suggest. A nascent economic recovery, falling unemployment in many countries, cheaper fuel and low interest rates should help mainstream center-right and center-left parties regain some lost ground in time for national elections.
Islamic State's executions of Christians show the group is exploiting Libya's lawlessness but tribal and political loyalties and the absence of a sectarian divide mean it is unlikely to grow as rapidly there as in Iraq or Syria. On Sunday, the militant group published a video purportedly showing the execution of 30 Ethiopian Christians in two locations in eastern and southern Libya, two months after it beheaded 21 Egyptian Copts there. The video suggests Islamic State, which controls much of Syria and Iraq, has managed to further expand in the North African country after establishing a limited presence in the eastern town of Derna as well as in western and central Libya. It is benefiting from chaos in oil-producing Libya, where two governments allied to armed factions are fighting each other on several fronts four years after the fall of Muammar Gaddafi. With neither side able to dominate, a security vacuum exists. But Islamic State may struggle to expand as it has in Syria and Iraq because Libya has no Sunni-Shi'ite divide the group could exploit to draw in supporters. Libyans are Sunni Muslims.
