Neuschwanstein Castle Neuschwanstein Castle is a 19th-century Romanesque Revival palace on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as an homage to Richard Wagner. Contrary to common belief, Ludwig paid for the palace out of his personal fortune and extensive borrowing, not with Bavarian public funds. The palace was intended as a personal refuge for the reclusive king, but it was opened to the paying public immediately after his death in 1886. Since then over 60 million people have visited Neuschwanstein Castle. More than 1.3 million people visit annually, with up to 6,000 per day in the summer.The palace has appeared prominently in several movies and was the inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle and later, similar structures.

21 Incredibly Important Diagrams To Help You Get Through Life Cinquante nuances de Grey: pour ou contre? – Coup De Pouce Blog J’ai enfin lu Cinquante nuances de Grey, le livre le plus vendu au monde en 2012. Pourquoi maintenant? Parce que j’ai enfin trouvé une copie gratuite! J’avoue avoir été réticente jusqu’ici à acheter un bouquin sur une relation de dominance et de soumission. Mais une copie traînait dans l’étagère de Coup de pouce et comme plusieurs femmes que je connais et respecte l’ont apprécié (peut-être certaines d’entre vous), je me suis convaincue de m’y plonger et d’essayer de comprendre son succès. Avec 65 millions d’exemplaires vendus, la trilogie Cinquante Nuances de Grey est un phénomène culturel. La différence, c’est que, dans Cinquante Nuances de Grey, les scènes de séduction et d’amour sont décrites dans le moindre détail et que Grey est un «dominant», c’est-à-dire un homme qui a besoin d’avoir à sa disposition une «soumise» qui se prête aux volontés qu’il définit dans un contrat écrit. Tout de même, le succès planétaire de Grey était complétement inattendu, y compris pour l’éditeur.

Sa maison vendue à son insu | André Dubuc Elle a eu un choc en allant payer son impôt foncier. À l'hôtel de ville, la préposée lui a dit que l'avis d'imposition avait déjà été entièrement payé et qu'elle n'était plus propriétaire de l'immeuble depuis octobre 2012. «Je n'ai plus de maison. Je vis encore dedans, mais elle n'est plus à mon nom, a dit au téléphone la dame qui ne souhaite pas être identifiée. Si je meurs demain, mon testament n'est plus valable. Les fraudeurs ont usurpé l'identité de la dame. «Ils ont même fait faire un changement d'adresse à Postes Canada pour mon courrier», dit-elle, découragée. Voici le modus operandi : deux fraudeurs, un pour le vendeur et un autre pour le faux acheteur, arrivent chez le notaire avec des fausses cartes dans le but de faire notarier la vente de la maison. La fraude est habituellement découverte quand le prêteur réclame le remboursement du prêt au supposé acheteur, victime lui aussi d'un vol d'identité. La police a confirmé l'ouverture d'une enquête sur la maison de Laval.
