UNE TANTE BIZARRE


BelƓil: Elle Ă©chappe Ă  une condamnation aprĂšs avoir mis sur Facebook des photos de sa niĂšce nue.

Un jeune homme est restĂ© bouche bĂ©e devant son ordinateur. Sa sƓur ĂągĂ©e de 15 ans s’exposait nue, dans des poses Ă©rotiques, sur son mur Facebook. Ces images destinĂ©es Ă  exciter un adolescent boutonneux de l’autre cĂŽtĂ© de la MĂ©diterranĂ©e Ă©taient lĂ , Ă  la vue de tous ses contacts.

Elles y sont restées quarante minutes, le temps pour la police, alertée par le jeune homme, de découvrir que les images avaient été publiées par un tiers malveillant.

Le coupable a rapidement Ă©tĂ© identifiĂ©. Il s’agissait de la tante de la jeune fille qui avait eu accĂšs Ă  son compte Facebook puisque la jeune fille avait pour habitude de squatter son ordinateur quand elle accompagnait ses parents chez son oncle. Cette mauvaise addiction, qui frappe les jeunes de 7 Ă  77 ans, n’a pas plu Ă  la tante qui ne portait pas sa niĂšce dans son cƓur.

En analysant le profil de sa niĂšce, la prĂ©venue avait dĂ©couvert les photos Ă©rotiques envoyĂ©es par message privĂ©. Elle avait expliquĂ© au tribunal qu’elle voulait montrer Ă  sa belle-sƓur de quoi Ă©tait capable sa fille car elle n’avait pas l’air de la croire quand elle prĂ©tendait qu’il fallait la recadrer.

Mais au lieu de lui en parler en privĂ©, elle n’a rien trouvĂ© de mieux que de l’exposer publiquement, ce qui constitue une infraction pĂ©nale. Une grosse bĂȘtise qui l’a conduit devant le tribunal correctionnel. «  C’est clair que c’est une grosse bĂȘtise. Quand on veut jouer Ă  la mĂšre la vertu, on n’enfreint pas soi-mĂȘme la loi  », avait affirmĂ© l’avocat de la dĂ©fense, M e  Baudoux. Encore fallait-il que la femme se rende compte que sa maladresse Ă©tait une infraction.

Jeudi, le tribunal a estimĂ© qu’elle Ă©tait coupable de l’infraction mais a estimĂ© qu’il ne fallait pas la condamner Ă  un an de prison avec sursis comme l’avait requis le procureur du roi. Une simple suspension du prononcĂ©, qui serait de nature Ă  lui faire comprendre de ne plus recommencer, a Ă©tĂ© prononcĂ©e.

A BUTCHER…. VEGAN ?


https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-47

After about 15 years working in the meat industry, butcher Brian Kavanagh found he was concealing a secret.

 

Much of his adult life had been spent shaping, slicing and trimming animal products by the slab without a qualm – a career that began when he was just 16 in a small family-run butcher in Burnside, South Lanarkshire.

But as he stood silent behind the meat counter in Morrisons supermarket, aged 33, Brian couldn’t quite find the words to tell colleagues he had become vegan.

“I kept it to myself,” he said. “I didn’t tell anyone because I was worried about them making jokes. Before I just looked at it as a piece of meat going on a dinner plate but then you see it as an animal and not just a steak.

“I was a bit depressed, it just didn’t feel good, so I had to leave.”

Brian said becoming a butcher was the first job he picked at the Job Centre as a teenager – and it was “just something to keep my dad quiet”.

As an adult, he said eating meat such as steak or chicken was routine and he would often buy meat from work for convenience.

 

Vegan butcher

He first considered giving up animal products when his wife Rebecca became vegan, but it was the animal welfare documentary Earthlings, narrated by Joaquin Phoenix, that finally pushed him to make the change.

The award-winning film, directed by Shaun Monson, contains footage of the conditions inside factory farms. Now Brian, his wife and his two children, age nine and six, stick to a plant-based diet.

“Me and the kids would have separate meals from my wife,” he said. “Now it’s so much easier doing it together.”

Brian, who is now 36, gave in his notice to Morrisons and was eventually hired at the Glasgow base of Sgaia’s Vegan Meats, founded by Hilary Masin and Alberto Casotto.

“I was worried my background and my story might put them off, and they wouldn’t want someone who was a meat butcher for 15 years,” he said.

“But they were really excited about it and wanted me just as much as I wanted to work there.”

He now calls himself a vegan butcher.

By blending a combination of soy, gluten and spices, Sgaia’s creates a number of vegan products which they call ‘mheats’ – from staples like streaky bacon and burgers to more specialised foods such as charcuterie.

The firm supplies a number of restaurants and kitchens in Glasgow – including the pop-up Durty Vegan Burger Club.

The job transition was a worry for Brian but quickly soon after joining he helped to launch one of its most popular products – the vegan lorne sausage.

He said: “Making sausages was a big part of being a butcher. Once I saw how the [vegan] base was made I thought it would be interesting to try to play about with that and create a lorne sausage.

“All the feedback has been really good. We took it to a festival and some people were coming back two or three times.”

Recent years have seen a large rise in small food manufacturers marketing their products as a new form of meat, despite resistance around the world.

In the US, last week, the governor of South Dakota signed legislation that required “fake meat” products to be appropriately labelled as it “misled” consumers.

It came after the US Cattlemen’s Association lodged a petition calling for an official definition of “beef” and “meat” in 2018.

France has also banned labelling vegan or vegetarian products as a meat item to avoid confusion.

But regardless of labels, Brian claimed his own lifestyle changes have brought him nothing but happiness.

He said: “My skin was the first thing I noticed. I always had spots until I was 30, but my skin became a lot clearer. I feel clearer in the mind too.

“It’s that psychological thing – you eat something healthy, you feel good.”

BISOUS INTERDITS APRES 21H00


Dans les bureaux de “Radio Satellite2”, nous avons vu passer une dĂ©pĂȘche sans trop y prĂȘter attention. Croyant Ă  un gag : Des bisous interdits au delĂ  de 21h00

AprĂšs vĂ©rification et aprĂšs avoir lu un papier Ă©crit par “bfmtv”  et “Le monde”, il s’est avĂ©rĂ© que ce n’en Ă©tait pas un.

Il s’agit de Dedi MULYADI, c’est le dirigeant de Purwakarta , un district Ă  l’ouest de Jakarta, Capitale de l’indonĂ©sie.

Alors tenez vous bien: Ce responsable a Ă©mis une note ( une rĂšgle pourrait on dire) d’interdire aux couples “non mariĂ©s”  mineurs, de s’embrasser au delĂ  de 21h00.

En lisant ceci, dans nos studios, nous avions souri, vu de loin, ceci parait surréel pour un oeil occidental .

Cependant, il est vrai que nous ne connaissons pas les conditions de vie de ce district ( que nous ne connaissions pas du tout. Nous découvrons aussi bien le maire, que le district).

La personne prise en flagrant dĂ©lit ( en gĂ©nĂ©ral, on accuse l’homme)  a 3 chances pusiqu’il reçoit 3 avertissements: 1 avertissement Ă  chaque fois ( les 3 premiĂšres fois) .

La 4e fois.. fini la rigolade, les responsables entrent en contact avec les parents des 2 tourtereaux pour convenir ” si oui ou non” il est sujet de mariage.

Le but de cette rĂšglementation  est de (nous citons) “protĂ©ger l’honneur des filles”.

Un couple a dĂ©jĂ  Ă©tĂ© forcĂ© de se marier selon le responsable citĂ©. Ils furent avertis Ă  plusieurs reprises, mais l’homme Ă©tait “tĂȘtu” ( terme citĂ© par Monsieur Mulyadi ).

Il a mĂȘme constuit des pavillons de rencontres pour que les couples puissent se rencontrer et si l’envie de se bequoter?, eh bien , oui..ils pourront s’embrasser dans ces pavillons, sous les regards bienveillants et surveillants des camĂ©ras installĂ©es dans ces pavillon. Dans le but d’Ă©viter aux autres passants de se voir subir, ces bisous illĂ©gaux.

Attention: Les bisous bisous doivent s’arrĂȘter Ă  09h00 PM . Tout dĂ©passement horaire Ă©quivaut Ă  un avertissement.

Parole de caméra.

Nous ne savons pas si les jeunes tourtereaux apprécient cette rÚglementation.

Ce qui est sûr, que cette rÚglementation ravit à merveille les parents; Les mÚres surtout qui voit en cette mesure, un garde fou pour la protection de leurs enfants.

AprĂšs tout, si les citoyens sont satisfaits. C’est le but de sa mission en tant que maire de ce district. Non?

En tout Ă©tat de cause, ce maire a rĂ©ussi un coup magistral: Faire parler de son district dans les mĂ©dias et attirer l’attention des foules, des touristes potentiels, entre autres.

La preuve? Nous en parlons ici mĂȘme sur Radio Satellite

Bravo.

Mystery…MystĂšre


Racetrack Playa is home to an enduring Death Valley mystery. Littered across the surface of this dry lake, also called a “playa,” are hundreds of rocks — some weighing as much as 320 kilograms (700 pounds) — that seem to have been dragged across the ground, leaving synchronized trails that can stretch for hundreds of meters.Death_Valley

What powerful force could be moving them? Researchers have investigated this question since the 1940s, but no one has seen the process in action — until now.

In a paper published in the journal PLOS ONE on Aug. 27, a team led by Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, paleobiologist Richard Norris reports on first-hand observations of the phenomenon.

Because the stones can sit for a decade or more without moving, the researchers did not originally expect to see motion in person. Instead, they decided to monitor the rocks remotely by installing a high-resolution weather station capable of measuring gusts to one-second intervals and fitting 15 rocks with custom-built, motion-activated GPS units. (The National Park Service would not let them use native rocks, so they brought in similar rocks from an outside source.) The experiment was set up in winter 2011 with permission of the Park Service. Then — in what Ralph Lorenz of the Applied Physics Laboratory at the Johns Hopkins University, one of the paper’s authors, suspected would be  “the most boring experiment ever” — they waited for something to happen.

But in December 2013, Norris and co-author and cousin Jim Norris arrived in Death Valley to discover that the playa was covered with a pond of water seven centimeters (three inches) deep. Shortly after, the rocks began moving.

‘Element of luck’

“Science sometimes has an element of luck,” Richard Norris said. “We expected to wait five or 10 years without anything moving, but only two years into the project, we just happened to be there at the right time to see it happen in person.”

Their observations show that moving the rocks requires a rare combination of events. First, the playa fills with water, which must be deep enough to form floating ice during cold winter nights but shallow enough to expose the rocks. As nighttime temperatures plummet, the pond freezes to form thin sheets of “windowpane” ice, which must be thin enough to move freely but thick enough to maintain strength. On sunny days, the ice begins to melt and break up into large floating panels, which light winds drive across the playa, pushing rocks in front of them and leaving trails in the soft mud below the surface.

“On Dec. 21, 2013, ice breakup happened just around noon, with popping and cracking sounds coming from all over the frozen pond surface,” said Richard Norris. “I said to Jim, ‘This is it!’”Sailing stones2

These observations upended previous theories that had proposed hurricane-force winds, dust devils, slick algal films, or thick sheets of ice as likely contributors to rock motion. Instead, rocks moved under light winds of about 3-5 meters per second (10 miles per hour) and were driven by ice less than 3-5 millimeters (0.25 inches) thick, a measure too thin to grip large rocks and lift them off the playa, which several papers had proposed as a mechanism to reduce friction. Further, the rocks moved only a few inches per second (2-6 meters per minute), a speed that is almost imperceptible at a distance and without stationary reference points.

“It’s possible that tourists have actually seen this happening without realizing it,” said Jim Norris of the engineering firm Interwoof in Santa Barbara. “It is really tough to gauge that a rock is in motion if all the rocks around it are also moving.”

Individual rocks remained in motion for anywhere from a few seconds to 16 minutes. In one event, the researchers observed rocks three football fields apart began moving simultaneously and traveled over 60 meters (200 feet) before stopping. Rocks often moved multiple times before reaching their final resting place. The researchers also observed rock-less trails formed by grounding ice panels — features that the Park Service had previously suspected were the result of tourists stealing rocks.

Rare events

“The last suspected movement was in 2006, and so rocks may move only about one millionth of the time,” said Lorenz. “There is also evidence that the frequency of rock movement, which seems to require cold nights to form ice, may have declined since the 1970s due to climate change.”

Richard and Jim Norris, and co-author Jib Ray of Interwoof, started studying the Racetrack’s moving rocks to solve the “public mystery” and set up the “Slithering Stones Research Initiative” to engage a wide circle of friends in the effort. They needed the help of volunteers who repeatedly visited the remote dry lake, quarried the rocks that were fitted with GPS, and maintained custom-made instruments. Lorenz and Brian Jackson of the Department of Physics at Boise State University started working on the phenomenon for their own reasons: They wanted to study dust devils and other desert weather features that might have analogs to processes happening on other planets.

sailingrocks02“What is striking about prior research on the Racetrack is that almost everybody was doing the work not to gain fame or fortune, but because it is such a neat problem,” said Jim Norris.

So is the mystery of the sliding rocks finally solved?

“We documented five movement events in the two and a half months the pond existed and some involved hundreds of rocks,” says Richard Norris. “So we have seen that even in Death Valley, famous for its heat, floating ice is a powerful force in rock motion. But we have not seen the really big boys move out there
.Does that work the same way?”
