U.S. museums increasingly evading restitution of Nazi-looted art: Report. NEW YORK -- U.S. museums are increasingly evading the restitution of Nazi-looted art by using legal tactics to avoid resolving the cases on their merits, according to a report by the World Jewish Restitution Organization released Thursday.

U.S. museums increasingly evading restitution of Nazi-looted art: Report

The tactic is a trend that has grown in recent years, it said. French museums face a cultural change over restitution of colonial objects. Ever since explorers, scientists and soldiers started travelling the world and bringing back treasures, France has upheld the principle of the “inalienability” of public heritage.

French museums face a cultural change over restitution of colonial objects

The works that are now in French museums and collections will, supposedly, remain a part of national heritage for ever. This principle was established in 1566, when the edict of Moulins proclaimed that the royal domain was inalienable and imprescriptible. As a republican, I used to look forward to Charles III. Now I’m scared.

Diamond Jubilee v Republican Britain

Republicans are stepping up their protest over the weekend - but who are they, and what exactly do they want? A group of volunteers is spending a long evening organising campaign material - stapling big white placards to wooden poles. The signs read: "Power to the People" and "Citizen Not Subject" in large black lettering. 'There is now a republican movement': anti-royal campaigners get organised. TheQueen.pdf.

Une chambre à moi: Mes films italiens contemporains préférés. Italien. Littérature. Storytelling et enseignement. Le storytelling est un terme anglo-saxon qui signifie, littéralement, “raconter une histoire” : story (histoire) + telling (raconter).Celui-ci est souvent apparenté à un art : “l’art de raconter des histoires”.

Storytelling et enseignement

L’homme politique a recours à la pratique du storytelling pour augmenter son pouvoir de persuasion, le représentant commercial en fait l’usage pour mieux séduire le consommateur, quant au journaliste, il l’utilise comme un moyen de dramatiser un évènement afin de susciter une plus grande émotion chez le public. En pédagogie, l’arrivée de nouveaux outils numériques donnent aux enseignants et aux élèves la possibilité de créer des histoires interactives en utilisant à la fois le texte, le son et l’image.

During a flying visit to see Tony Blair in Downing Street, Bill Clinton once remarked that he’d happily exchange the constitutional powers granted to an American president for those available to a British prime minister with a majority in the 650-seat House of Commons.

Britain's election: rise of Scottish and English nationalists threatens old order

And that’s really the point of next month’s UK general election, in which the current Conservative prime minister, David Cameron, and his Labour challenger, Ed Miliband, are battling for the top job: this year, those powers are diminished more than they have been for a century. When the Founding Fathers met in Philadelphia in 1787, they were determined to prevent a tyranny like George III’s, and so separated out the legislative, judicial and executive branches of government to keep each other in check. That didn’t happen in Britain, where reforming governments wrestled royal prerogatives away from the monarch, and kept most to themselves.

Last month the Supreme Court heard a case that asked whether Texas should allow the Sons of Confederate Veterans to put a Confederate flag on their car licence-plates, and two white students were expelled from the University of Oklahoma for singing a song about lynching taught to them by a fraternity founded in the antebellum South. Many Americans remain fascinated by the conflict. In 2002 the Library of Congress estimated that 70,000 books had been published about it, more than one a day since the war ended.

Steve Jobs Was a Low-Tech Parent. Photo When was running Apple, he was known to call journalists to either pat them on the back for a recent article or, more often than not, explain how they got it wrong.

Why you really should keep a journal, no matter how cheesy that sounds. If you've spent any significant time reading books or articles on the "science of happiness", you'll have encountered what I've long thought of as the Cheesiness Problem. It's an inescapable fact that some of the most thoroughly evidence-backed techniques for enhancing one's mood are also the most excruciatingly embarrassing – the sorts of things that those of us who imagine ourselves to be rational, sceptical types would never dream of confessing to.

This is awkward, since (as I've written before) it means having to choose between maintaining a pose of sardonic detachment or doing what actually works. For me, the most vivid example is keeping a gratitude journal. On the one hand, it really helps. On the other hand – well, come on. Anyway, this problem just got worse. Researchers led by Elizabeth Broadbent, a senior lecturer in health psychology at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, studied 49 healthy senior citizens, aged 64 to 97.
