Je dis aux femmes trois choses : votre indépendance économique est la clé de votre libération. Ne laissez rien passer dans les gestes, le langage, les situations, qui attentent à votre dignité. Ne vous résignez jamais !
Une femme indépendante économiquement peut se réaliser dans des tas de domaines, y compris en amour d’ailleurs.
Ce n’est pas si désagréable de vieillir si l’on ne coupe pas la vie en étapes, si on ne se dit pas : « Maintenant c’est fini, je suis entrée dans la vieillesse ».
BVB undeniably blew the Bundesliga on the final day. They admitted that themselves after being held at home by Mainz. And yet the most memorable moment of the title race was not Jamal Musiala winning an 11th consecutive Bundesliga for Bayern Munich, it was more than 25,000 people on The Yellow Wall consoling a tearful Terzic with the words, “If you win and stand top, or if you lose and stand at the bottom, we’ll still sing: Borussia, BVB!”
It was a spine-tingling show of unity – and dignity, the epitome of magnanimity in defeat.
Dr. Robert White was a friend to two popes and a founder of the Vatican’s Commission on Bioethics. He developed lifesaving neurosurgical techniques still used in hospitals today and was nominated for the Nobel Prize. But like Dr. Jekyll before him, Dr. White had another identity. In his lab, he was waging a battle against the limits of science and against mortality itself—working to perfect a surgery that would allow the soul to live on after the human body had died.
Wu was an integral member of one of the two groups that observed the J/psi particle, which heralded the existence of a fourth kind of quark, now called the charm. The discovery, in 1974, was known as the November Revolution, a coup that led to the establishment of the Standard Model of particle physics. Later in the 1970s, Wu did much of the math and analysis to discern the three “jets” of energy flying away from particle collisions that signaled the existence of gluons — particles that mediate the strong force holding protons and neutrons together. This was the first observation of particles that communicate a force since scientists recognized photons of light as the carriers of electromagnetism. Wu later became one of the group leaders for the ATLAS experiment, one of the two collaborations at the Large Hadron Collider that discovered the Higgs boson in 2012, filling in the final piece of the Standard Model. She continues to search for new particles that would transcend the Standard Model and push physics forward.
Professor Luis Garicano, to whom the Queen directed her question when she visited the LSE, said: “She seemed very interested, and she asked me: ‘How come nobody could foresee it?‘
I think the main answer is that people were doing what they were paid to do, and behaved according to their incentives, but in many cases they were being paid to do the wrong things from society’s perspective.“
Let no one be discouraged by the belief there is nothing one man or woman can do against the enormous array of the world’s ill — against misery and ignorance, injustice, and violence… Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.
It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an idea, or strikes out against injustice, or acts to improve the lots of others, he sends a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
The moment we no longer have a free press, anything can happen. What makes it possible for a totalitarian or any other dictatorship to rule is that people are not informed; how can you have an opinion if you are not informed? If everybody always lies to you, the consequence is not that you believe the lies, but rather that nobody believes anything any longer. This is because lies, by their very nature, have to be changed, and a lying government has constantly to rewrite its own history. On the receiving end you get not only one lie—a lie which you could go on for the rest of your days—but you get a great number of lies, depending on how the political wind blows. And a people that no longer can believe anything cannot make up its mind. It is deprived not only of its capacity to act but also of its capacity to think and to judge. And with such a people you can then do what you please.
Kaoru Mitoma of Brighton & Hove Albion was superb against Wolves
Justified the decision to keep him in the starting lineup as he caused right-back Nelson Semedo a lot of problems along the left wing. He took his first goal for the club in style with a powerful header and then drew a foul from Semedo on the edge of the box that led to the Wolves man being sent off. Was a constant threat and Wolves couldn’t handle him at all.
Ce qui m’intéresse, ce n’est pas le bonheur de tous les hommes, c’est celui de chacun.
Dans la vie, l’essentiel est de porter sur tout des jugements à priori. Il apparaît, en effet, que les masses ont tort, et les individus toujours raison. Il faut se garder d’en déduire des règles de conduite : elles ne doivent pas avoir besoin d’être formulées pour qu’on les suive. Il y a seulement deux choses : c’est l’amour, de toutes les façons, avec des jolies filles, et la musique de la Nouvelle-Orléans ou de Duke Ellington. Le reste devrait disparaître, car le reste est laid, et les quelques pages de démonstration qui suivent tirent toute leur force du fait que l’histoire est entièrement vraie, puisque je l’ai imaginée d’un bout à l’autre. Sa réalisation matérielle proprement dite consiste essentiellement en une projection de la réalité, en atmosphère biaise et chauffée, sur un plan de référence irrégulièrement ondulé et présentant de la distorsion. On le voit, c’est un procédé avouable, s’il en fut.
It was futile for someone to tell me, say, that I’m stupid. I knew that they were wrong, I knew that what I was doing was important, (…) in the same way when now, when people say I’m a hero, I’m not a hero, to me the healthcare workers, students, doctors, nurses, and janitors entering the rooms of Covid patients when they were not vaccinated, laying their lives on the line, they are the heroes.
The clinical presentation of COVID-19 due to infection with SARS-CoV-2 is highly variable with the majority of patients having mild symptoms while others develop severe respiratory failure. The reason for this variability is unclear but is in critical need of investigation. Some COVID-19 patients have been labelled with ‘happy hypoxia’, in which patient complaints of dyspnoea and observable signs of respiratory distress are reported to be absent. Based on ongoing debate, we highlight key respiratory and neurological components that could underlie variation in the presentation of silent hypoxaemia and define priorities for subsequent investigation.
C’est pourquoi encore il était naturel que Grand, qui n’avait rien d’un héros, assurât maintenant une sorte de secrétariat des formations sanitaires. Une partie des équipes formées par Tarrou se consacrait en effet à un travail d’assistance préventive dans les quartiers surpeuplés. On essayait d’y introduire l’hygiène nécessaire, on faisait le compte des greniers et des caves que la désinfection n’avait pas visités. Une autre partie des équipes secondait les médecins dans les visites à domicile, assurait le transport des pestiférés, et même, par la suite, en l’absence de personnel spécialisé, conduisit les voitures des malades et des morts. Tout ceci exigeait un travail d’enregistrement et de statistiques que Grand avait accepté de faire.
De ce point de vue, et plus que Rieux ou Tarrou, le narrateur estime que Grand était le représentant réel de cette vertu tranquille qui animait les formations sanitaires. Il avait dit oui sans hésitation, avec la bonne volonté qui était la sienne. Il avait seulement demandé à se rendre utile dans de petits travaux. Il était trop vieux pour le reste. De dix-huit heures à vingt heures, il pouvait donner son temps. Et comme Rieux le remerciait avec chaleur, il s’en étonnait : « Ce n’est pas le plus difficile. Il y a la peste, il faut se défendre, c’est clair. Ah ! si tout était aussi simple ! » Et il revenait à sa phrase. Quelquefois, le soir, quand le travail des fiches était terminé, Rieux parlait avec Grand. Ils avaient fini par mêler Tarrou à leur conversation et Grand se confiait avec un plaisir de plus en plus évident à ses deux compagnons. Ces derniers suivaient avec intérêt le travail patient que Grand continuait au milieu de la peste. Eux aussi, finalement, y trouvaient une sorte de détente.
Each and everyone of us has a responsibility to prevent the spread of infection, to protect the elderly and other risk groups.
Nobody should take chances. Not one of us can go to work with symptoms. Young, old, rich or poor does not matter – everyone needs to do their part.
This also applies to you who are aged over 70 or belong to another risk group. I understand that it is frustrating to have to limit your life, your social contacts, but right now it is necessary. For the sake of your own health, of course, but also to protect other people and to give the healthcare services the opportunity to cope with the situation. And we who are adults need to be exactly that: adults. Not spread panic or rumours.
No one is alone in this crisis, but each person has a heavy responsibility. Every one.
This fact should by itself be sufficient to refute the silliest of the common misunderstandings: the belief that individualism postulates (or bases its arguments on the assumption of) the existence of isolated or self-contained individuals, instead of starting from men whose whole nature and character is determined by their existence in society.
All the possible differences in men’s moral attitudes amount to little, so far as their significance for social organization is concerned, compared with the fact that all man’s mind can effectively comprehend are the facts of the narrow circle of which he is the center; that, whether he is completely selfish or the most perfect altruist, the human needs for which he can effectively care are an almost negligible fraction of the needs, of all members of society.
We shall not grow wiser before we learn that much that we have done was very foolish.
Perhaps the fact that we have seen millions voting themselves into complete dependence on a tyrant has made our generation understand that to choose one’s government is not necessarily to secure freedom.
The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design.
I can live with doubt, and uncertainty, and not knowing. I think it’s much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers which might be wrong. I have approximate answers, and possible beliefs, and different degrees of certainty about different things, but I’m not absolutely sure of anything. There are many things I don’t know anything about, such as whether it means anything to ask “Why are we here?” I might think about it a little bit, and if I can’t figure it out then I go on to something else. But I don’t have to know an answer. I don’t feel frightened by not knowing things, by being lost in the mysterious universe without having any purpose — which is the way it really is, as far as I can tell. Possibly. It doesn’t frighten me.
We were never born to read. Human beings invented reading only a few thousand years ago. And with this invention, we rearranged the very organization of our brain, which in turn expanded the ways we were able to think, which altered the intellectual evolution of our species. Reading is one of the single most remarkable inventions in history; the ability to record history is one of its consequences. Our ancestors’ invention could come about only because of the human brain’s extraordinary ability to make new connections among its existing structures, a process made possible by the brain’s ability to be shaped by experience. This plasticity at the heart of the brain’s design forms the basis for much of who we are, and who we might become.
When people started to read and write, it was not seen universally as a good thing. On the contrary, some people, including Socrates, thought it might be terribly damaging, in the same way that many people today see computer games and text messages as damaging.
Socrates came from a culture where you had to remember everything, and he thought that having to memorise things meant you understood them better. Writing things down, he thought,would actually mean writing them down and forgetting them.
The ‘good’ mother, with her fixed smile, her rigidity, her goody-goody outlook, her obsession with unnecessary hygiene, is in fact a fool. It is the ‘bad’ mother, unafraid of a joke and a glass of wine, richly self-expressive, scornful of suburban values, who is, in reality, good.
Bellibria, en organisation under Røde Kors, sendte bl.a. titusinder af bøger og undervisningsmateriale til krigsfanger på begge sider af østfronten. Det danske erhvervsliv støttede krigsfangearbejdet ved at stille arbejdskraft, lokaler og transport til rådighed – her ses et af Bellibrias kontorer på Carlsberg, hvor frivillige fører kartoteker over krigsfangernes navne og opholdssteder.
Wabi-sabi is the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection and profundity in nature, of accepting the natural cycle of growth, decay, and death. It’s simple, slow, and uncluttered – and it reveres authenticity above all. …
It celebrates cracks and crevices and all the other marks that time, weather, and loving use leave behind. It reminds us that we are all but transient beings on this planet – that our bodies as well as the material world around us are in the process of returning to the dust from which we came.
Since publication of the last edition, our understanding and treatment of ALS have changed dramatically. The many puzzles of this disease are being steadily solved. A number of causes of familial ALS have been identified, and the mechanisms of motor neuron cell death are much better understood. The FDA approved riluzole in 1996 as the first drug ever approved for the treatment of ALS. Although expected for the past dozen years, it is frustrating to say that additional drugs have not been developed. Yet, new drugs continue to be tested and others are on the horizon.
World Cup hero Mario Gotze who had helped Germany clinch their fourth World Cup was seen waving a jersey, the one that which got media interested to know that whose jersey was Gotze actually carrying.
The media’s query was later answered as it was revealed that the former Borussia Dortmund player was carrying his team mate Marco Reus’ number 21 jersey who missed the World Cup due to an ankle injury.
Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer who also won the Golden Glove said that it was important that they remember Reus saying, “We should remember Reus and the Benders. They are World Champions. The whole Germany is a World Champion right now.”
Bubbles are typically associated with dramatic asset price increases followed by a collapse. Bubbles arise if the price exceeds the asset’s fundamental value. This can occur if investors hold the asset because they believe that they can sell it at a higher price to some other investor even though the asset’s price exceeds its fundamental value.
Since asset prices affect the real allocation of an economy, it is important to understand the circumstances under which these prices can deviate from their fundamental value.
There are four main strands of models:
all investors have rational expectations and identical information,
investors are asymmetrically informed and bubbles can emerge because their existence need not be commonly known,
rational traders interact with behavioural traders and bubbles persist since limits to arbitrage prevent rational investors from eradicating the price impact of behavioural traders,
investors hold heterogeneous beliefs, potentially due to psychological biases, and agree to disagree about the fundamental value.
What were the main challenges you faced here in Yemen, and what is the outlook now? Our work went through different phases, and it was difficult at times to have access to detainees. When Yemenis think about detention, they often do so in terms of a tribal framework that makes it a challenge to explain to the authorities what we do to help detainees and why they should allow an “outside organization” to do those things.
A big hope for the future would be to get a framework agreement with the Yemeni State that really works, that provides access to all detainees and all detention places, and an improved dialogue on matters of humanitarian concern with all of the authorities. The ICRC has entered into discussions with President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi with the aim of reaching a written agreement that would give the ICRC more systematic access to detainees held by the Yemeni State authorities. We have received an encouraging response and are making progress on this issue.
L’histoire de Coluche et du 14e arrondissement sont étroitement liées. C’est dans une maison du 14e, au 11 rue Gazan, que Coluche aimait rassembler sa tribu, au début des années 80. Soirée et boeuf musicaux se sont succédés, en particulier dans une salle située à l’arrière de la bâtisse.
Un permis de démolir a été délivré par la ville de Paris le 6 septembre 2008. Objectif : faire disparaître la salle de fête pour y ériger un bâtiment comportant trois appartement de 3 pièces et un appartement de 4 pièces. Ce lieu de mémoire va disparaître comme tant d’autres au profit d’une opération immobilière modeste.
La place Coluche a été baptisée en l’honneur de Michel Colucci dit Coluche, humoriste, comédien, et fondateur des Restos du Cœur, à l’occasion du 20e anniversaire de sa mort. Elle se situe non loin de la maison où il a vécu, près du parc Montsouris.
Laundry is strung outside the house. The water comes from a well in a yard, overgrown with weeds. Only two police officers and Manuela, a three-legged dog, keep watch outside.
This is the residence of the president of Uruguay, Jose Mujica, whose lifestyle clearly differs sharply from that of most other world leaders.
President Mujica has shunned the luxurious house that the Uruguayan state provides for its leaders and opted to stay at his wife’s farmhouse, off a dirt road outside the capital, Montevideo.
The president and his wife work the land themselves, growing flowers.
This austere lifestyle – and the fact that Mujica donates about 90% of his monthly salary, equivalent to $12,000 (£7,500), to charity – has led him to be labelled the poorest president in the world.
When we were told that by freedom we understood free enterprise, we did very little to dispel this monstrous falsehood. Wealth and economic well-being, we have asserted, are the fruits of freedom, while we should have been the first to know that this kind of “happiness” has been an unmixed blessing only in this country, and it is a minor blessing compared with the truly political freedoms, such as freedom of speech and thought, of assembly and association, even under the best conditions.
Economic growth may one day turn out to be a curse rather than a good, and under no conditions can it either lead into freedom or constitute a proof for its existence.
The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be either good or evil.
The trouble with Eichmann was precisely that so many were like him, and that the many were neither perverted nor sadistic, that they were, and still are, terribly and terrifyingly normal. From the viewpoint of our legal institutions and of our moral standards of judgment, this normality was much more terrifying than all the atrocities put together.
There are no dangerous thoughts; thinking itself is dangerous.
The most radical revolutionary will become a conservative the day after the revolution.
At the present moment people are unusually expectant of a more fundamental diagnosis; more particularly ready to receive it; eager to try it out, if it should be even plausible. But apart from this contemporary mood, the ideas of economists and political philosophers, both when they are right and when they are wrong, are more powerful than is commonly understood. Indeed the world is ruled by little else. Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist. Madmen in authority, who hear voices in the air, are distilling their frenzy from some academic scribbler of a few years back. I am sure that the power of vested interests is vastly exaggerated compared with the gradual encroachment of ideas. Not, indeed, immediately, but after a certain interval; for in the field of economic and political philosophy there are not many who are influenced by new theories after they are twenty-five or thirty years of age, so that the ideas which civil servants and politicians and even agitators apply to current events are not likely to be the newest. But, soon or late, it is ideas, not vested interests, which are dangerous for good or evil.
A French climber scaling a glacier off Mont Blanc got more than satisfaction for his efforts when he stumbled across a treasure trove of emeralds, rubies and sapphires that had been buried for decades.
The jewels, estimated to be worth up to 246,000 euros ($332,000), lay hidden in a metal box that was on board an Indian plane that crashed in the desolate landscape some 50 years ago.
The climber turned the haul in to local police.
The precautionary principle enables rapid response in the face of a possible danger to human, animal or plant health, or to protect the environment. In particular, where scientific data do not permit a complete evaluation of the risk, recourse to this principle may, for example, be used to stop distribution or order withdrawal from the market of products likely to be hazardous.
Le principe de précaution permet de réagir rapidement face à un possible danger pour la santé humaine, animale ou végétale, ou pour la protection de l’environnement. En effet, dans le cas où les données scientifiques ne permettent pas une évaluation complète du risque, le recours à ce principe permet, par exemple, d’empêcher la distribution ou même de retirer du marché des produits susceptibles d’être dangereux.
El principio de precaución permite reaccionar rápidamente ante un posible peligro para la salud humana, animal o vegetal, o para proteger el medio ambiente. De hecho, en caso de que los datos científicos no permitan una determinación completa del riesgo, el recurso a este principio permite, por ejemplo, impedir la distribución de productos que puedan entrañar un peligro para la salud o incluso proceder a su retirada del mercado.
Η αρχή της προφύλαξης καθιστά δυνατή την ταχεία αντίδραση ενόψει ενδεχομένου κινδύνου για την υγεία των ανθρώπων, των ζώων και των φυτών ή για την προστασία του περιβάλλοντος. Πράγματι, σε περίπτωση στην οποία τα επιστημονικά δεδομένα δεν επιτρέπουν πλήρη αξιολόγηση του κινδύνου, η προσφυγή σε αυτή την αρχή επιτρέπει, π.χ., την απαγόρευση της διανομής ή ακόμη και την απόσυρση από την αγορά προϊόντων που ενδεχομένως είναι επικίνδυνα.
