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).

1776 Declaration of Independence Committee preparing the Declaration Nothing of particular excitement occurring for a considerable time our countrymen seemed to fall into a state of insensibility to our situation. The duty on tea not yet repealed & the Declaratory act of a right in the British parliament to bind us by their laws in all cases whatsoever, still suspended over us. But a court of inquiry held in R. Island in 1772 [*see note in commentary following], with a power to send persons to England to be tried for offences committed here was considered at our session of the spring of 1773 as demanding attention. There may have been a member or two more whom I do not recollect. The Apollo Room of the Raleigh Tavern, circa 1750 We therefore drew up the resolutions which may be seen in Wirt pa 87. The Govr.

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 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.

Victorian London A-Z Street Index The third phase of our Victorian London Street Index is now complete and contains over 61,000 references. A note of caution for family and local history researchers. During the latter-half of the nineteenth century, Metropolitan London was rapidly being rebuilt. Slums were demolished and replaced with new houses and a lot of demolition of roads took place to make way for the railways. In 1888 the General Post Office and London County Council conducted a renaming and renumbering scheme to eliminate duplicate road names throughout the LCC and to renumber houses consistently with the lowest number being closest to the local post office. In the street indexes, places shown in UPPER case letters refer to the Registration District for census returns, or in the case of the City of London they indicate the ward. The year shown thus [1881] indicates the year of the original reference, thus: To speed-up the loading process, the index of streets has been split into separate A-Z lists:
