18thConnect Reprise de poids #72 : Douce France #12 - Krinein Hé oui vous l'avez bien compris, c'est le retour tant attendu du Douce France des Reprises de poids. Saurez-vous retrouver les interprètes originaux de ces chansons en français (à défaut d'être françaises) ? On début avec Dalida qui chante Tu croiras. Les premières mesures devraient vous mettre directement sur la piste. De la même façon, si vous ne trouvez pas quel est le titre qui se cache derrière Señora la dueña de Richard Anthony, alors c'est que vous avez du chou-fleur dans les oreilles. Encore un habitué, on retrouve toujours les mêmes ici bien sûr. Restons un instant avec Mireille Mathieu et son Reste avec moi. On s'fait un p'tit Dick pour la route (mode L'embrouille, Didier L'embrouille enclenché).

Rag Linen | Online Museum of Historic Newspapers Le livre noir du sexisme geek Lu sur la toile Mis en ligne le 18/03/13 I Rédaction par La Rédaction De l'obsession des seins aux pratiques d'exclusion des filles, une gameuse décortique la misogynie à l’œuvre dans la « geekosphère ». Débat garanti. C'est un dossier à charge. Objets Et son constat est sans appel : si au moins quatre joueurs sur dix sont des joueuses, les femmes représentées « dans la geekosphère n’existent qu’en tant que jouets, à la disposition des hommes. » Et, tant qu'à faire, avec une poitrine avantageuse. Exclusion Si l'exclusion des joueuses prend une forme implicite quand les femmes sont reléguées au rang d'objets, elle peut aussi s'exprimer franchement. Déni « Les communautés anglophones se sont emparées du sujet depuis un moment ; la récurrence des incidents ne laisse plus de place au déni », note la gameuse. En revanche, il existe une « exception française » du déni, estime Mar_Lard. Entre-soi Et le phénomène ne concerne pas que le petit monde du jeu vidéo.

Map Citizens Research Council of Michigan British Fiction 1800–1829: Homepage FSPod : Podcast, Blog et Science sur Futura-Sciences How the EU works The EU is a unique economic and political partnership between 28 European countries that together cover much of the continent. The EU was created in the aftermath of the Second World War. The first steps were to foster economic cooperation: the idea being that countries who trade with one another become economically interdependent and so more likely to avoid conflict. The result was the European Economic Community (EEC), created in 1958, and initially increasing economic cooperation between six countries: Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. Since then, a huge single market has been created and continues to develop towards its full potential. From economic to political union What began as a purely economic union has evolved into an organisation spanning policy areas, from development aid to environment. The EU is based on the rule of law: everything that it does is founded on treaties, voluntarily and democratically agreed by all member countries.

The Interfaith Worker Justice delegation calls upon Ascension Health to insist that its affiliated hospitals respect the rights of workers to organize, approach collective bargaining in good faith and in a constructive spirit, and abide by the process for unions in Catholic health care institutions outlined by the U.S.
