The video has sparked criticism from all over the world, prompting Thailands Office of National Buddhism to announce it is now monitoringthe monks for inappropriate behavior. The agencysdirector-general Nopparat Benjawatananun said this week : When Lord Buddha was alive, there wasnt anything like this. There were no cars, smartphones or cameras, so the rules were much simpler. While the monks need to keep themselves abreast of new knowledge, current events and technology, they are restrained to choose the appropriate tools. Nopparat added that the Buddhist monks in the video were acting inappropriately, not composed and not adhering to Buddhas teachings of simplicity and self-restraint. Glad thats settled. He did, however, offer one interesting piece of data by way of explanation: In many cases, it was the followers who gave the monks the luxury.

Along with younger brother Antoine, who is currently chief executive of luxury Italian shoe maker Berluti, Bernard Arnault’s eldest daughter Delphine has been groomed since her teens to take senior roles within LVMH. A graduate of prestigious French business school EDHEC and the London School of Economics, she first learned the ropes of the family-controlled business as a teenage sales girl at a Dior boutique. She now sits on the LVMH board. In her role at Dior, Arnault was credited for bringing creative director Raf Simons on board last year after the departure of John Galliano. Simons’ modern take on heritage Dior designs has since met with critical and commercial success, propelling sales and demand for couture clothes. In December, Christian Dior Couture reported sales for the half-year to October 31 up 18 percent at 632 million euros ($840 million) and said margins had improved. Delphine Arnault’s father is chairman, chief executive and controlling shareholder of LVMH and the wealthiest man in France, controlling 60 luxury brands and a business that spans fashion, perfume, wine and watches. Bernard Arnault caused an uproar in France when he sought Belgian citizenship last September – a move he said was meant to protect a foundation designed to control his family’s holdings in LVMH if he dies, not to dodge new wealth taxes. He has since abandoned plans to apply for Belgian citizenship. Arnault is currently locked in a battle with the Hermes family, whom he shocked in 2010 by revealing that he held a 14 percent stake in their company.

Not been keeping up with the fraud fight? Don’t worry, we’ve summarised the full details for you here , but basically Hermes has accused Louis Vuitton’s parent company of illegally trying to amass a majority stake in its shareholdings. As the case continued to play out in a French court this week, Hermes reportedly accused LVMH of committing the “most important fraud in the history of the French stock market.” It’s a heavy claim and Hermes representatives have shown no sign of wavering under the power of their words, but despite the severity of the accusations, LVMH is still claiming total innocence. In fact, a spokesperson has gone so far as to tell French newspapers that Hermes’ claims should be dismissed entirely, and considered a part of a wider slander campaign. Eeish. You can’t get more of an ‘it wasn’t me’ than that.
