PINAL PARK


Pinal Park est le plus grand “cimetiaire” des avions de lignes.

De nombreux avions à la retraite et n’ayant plus le droit de voler , ayant atteint le maximum d’heures de vol, sont garés dans ce grand parking en plein air.

Cependant, même si ces avions ne volent plus, ils restent encore “utiles” et “utilisés”.

Les pièces de rechanges étant démontées et réutilisées sur d’autres avions encore valides et en cours d’utilisation, partout dans le monde. Les hublots, les portes, les filtres etc… Tout est réutilisé.

Evidemment, réutilisation de ces pièces, si elles sont en bon état et validées par les organismes agrées.

Outre les pièces détachées, certains tournages de films ( genre action ) utilisent l’intérieur de ces avions L’intérieur étant déjà démantelé. Ce qui est utile lors d’un tournage de films d’attentat à la bombe ou de catastrophes naturelles. Les sièges et autres mobiliers de ces avions étant déjà détruits ou arrachés.

PINAL PARL est aussi un grand garage pour la réparation et l’entretien des avions en état de voler.

Ce n’est donc pas , uniquement, un parking de carcasses d’avions.

Nous vous laissons avec ces vidéos interessantes et assez parlantes.

Hold up pour demander son propre argent


(Article could be translated in several languages)

Un braquage, comme on dit en anglais ” Hold Up” d’une banque c’est quelque chose que l’on voit dans la vie réelle partout dans le monde. Aussi bien que dans les films et romans. Cependant un “Hold up” d’une banque pour exiger son “propre argent” existant sur son compte bancaire?? Là c’est plus rare.

En effet, à Beyrouth, au Liban, suite à la crise financière dûe au “hold up” qu’ont subi les déposants et clients de toutes les banques. Les clients de ces banques ont quasiment tout perdu (ou presque) de leurs dépôts, de leurs économies et de leurs avoirs. Les banques interdisent à leurs clients de retirer leur propres économies. Même si une légère amélioration a été enregistrée en leur permettant de retirer des sommes “au compte compte” avec des plafonds trop limités. Autant dire que ces épargnants ne sont pas près de récupérer leurs économies.

La semaine dernière, un client ne pouvant plus supporter les refus de sa banque…. Refus et interdiction de lui permettre de retirer une partie de ses économies pour des besoins urgent.

En effet, ce monsieur souhaitait retirer de l’argent pour soigner son père malade.

La banque lui refusant ses demandes ( refus du montant total ou partiel, nous ne savons pas) Cependant, le droit naturel de tout client de retirer son propre argent , le montant qu’il souhaite lui a été refusé.

Armé d’une mitraillette, il a dû effectuer un hold up de sa propre agence bancaire pour exiger le retrait de son “propre argent”.

Les citoyens étant aussi logés à la même enseigne, lui ont apporté leurs soutiens. Sachant qu’une prise d’otage n’était pas la méthode souhaitée. Les otages ( salariés de la banque et clients) étant eux aussi victimes et étant logés à la même enseigne que le braqueur.

Pour résumer, même si la méthode était contestée, cependant de nombreux citoyens rassemblés autour de la banque ont crié leur colère envers le pouvoir, envers les députés, envers les politiques qui ont vu leurs portefeuilles et épargnes passer illégalement sans doute, donc passer de 1 us $ au milliard de us $ dans des compte bancaires et paradis fiscaux à l’étranger alors que la population a perdu son argent

Le déposant qui a quelques milliers ou centaines de milliers de dollars en banque. Eh bien il ne l’a que sur un bout de papier que lui remet la banque. Sauf qu’en réalité, il ne peut en disposer ( et sans doute ne le pourra plus jamais )

Cocasse et triste de voir une personne effectuer un HOLD UP pour “retirer” son propre argent.

Stars from old movies, where are they today?

IN ENGLISH

Modern Family is an American family sitcom television series created by Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan for the American Broadcasting Company. It ran for 11 seasons, from September 23, 2009, to April 8, 2020. It follows the lives of three diverse family set-ups in suburban Los Angeles, linked by patriarch Jay Pritchett.

Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan conceived the series while sharing stories of their own “modern families”. Modern Family employs an ensemble cast and is presented in mockumentary style, with the characters frequently speaking directly to the camera in confessional interview segments.

The series was renewed for an eleventh and final season on February 5, 2019, which premiered on September 25, 2019. The series finale aired on April 8, 2020.

Modern Family was acclaimed by critics throughout its first few seasons. Its critical reception became more mixed as it progressed, but it maintained a loyal fan base throughout its 11 seasons and was continuously popular. The final season received generally positive reviews, and the finale episode had 7.37 million first-run viewers. The retrospective documentary that aired before the final episode had 6.72 million first-run viewers.

The show won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series in each of its first five years and the Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series four times, twice each for Eric Stonestreet and Ty Burrell, as well as the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series twice for Julie Bowen. It won a total of 22 Emmy awards from 75 nominations. It also won the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy in 2011.

The broadcast syndication rights to the series were sold to NBCUniversal’s USA Network, the stations of Fox Television Stations, and various other local stations in other markets for a fall 2013 premiere. The success of the series led to it being the 10th-highest revenue-generating show for 2012, earning $2.13 million an episode.

My fair lady


My Fair Lady is a 1964 American musical drama film adapted from the 1956 Lerner and Loewe stage musical based on George Bernard Shaw‘s 1913 stage play Pygmalion. With a screenplay by Alan Jay Lerner and directed by George Cukor, the film depicts a poor Cockney flower-seller named Eliza Doolittle who overhears an arrogant phonetics professor, Henry Higgins, as he casually wagers that he could teach her to speak “proper” English, thereby making her presentable in the high society of Edwardian London.

My fair Lady

The film stars Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle and Rex Harrison as Henry Higgins, with Stanley HollowayGladys Cooper and Wilfrid Hyde-White in supporting roles. A critical and commercial success, it became the second highest-grossing film of 1964 and won eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Director. In 1998, the American Film Institute named it the 91st greatest American film of all time. In 2006 it was ranked eighth in the AFI’s Greatest Movie Musicals list.

In 2018, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”

In London, Professor Henry Higgins, a scholar of phonetics, believes that the accent and tone of one’s voice determines a person’s prospects in society (“Why Can’t the English?”). At the Covent Garden fruit-and-vegetable market one evening, he meets Colonel Hugh Pickering, himself a phonetics expert who had come from India to see him. Higgins boasts he could teach even Eliza Doolittle, the young flower seller woman with a strong Cockney accent, to speak so well he could pass her off as a duchess at an embassy ball. Eliza’s ambition is to work in a flower shop, but her accent makes that impossible (“Wouldn’t It Be Loverly”). The following morning, Eliza shows up at Higgins’ home, seeking lessons. Pickering is intrigued and offers to cover all the attendant expenses if Higgins succeeds. Higgins agrees and describes how women ruin lives (“I’m an Ordinary Man”).

Eliza’s father, Alfred P. Doolittle, a dustman, learns of his daughter’s new residence (“With a Little Bit of Luck”). He shows up at Higgins’ house three days later, ostensibly to protect his daughter’s virtue, but in reality to extract some money from Higgins, and is bought off with £5. Higgins is impressed by the man’s honesty, his natural gift for language, and especially his brazen lack of morals. Higgins recommends Alfred to a wealthy American who is interested in morality.

Eliza endures Higgins’ demanding teaching methods and treatment of her personally (“Just You Wait”), while the servants feel both annoyed with the noise as well as pitiful for Higgins (“Servants’ Chorus”). She makes no progress, but just as she, Higgins, and Pickering are about to give up, Eliza finally “gets it” (“The Rain in Spain”); she instantly begins to speak with an impeccable upper-class accent, and is overjoyed at her breakthrough (“I Could Have Danced All Night”).

As a trial run, Higgins takes her to Ascot Racecourse (“Ascot Gavotte”), where she makes a good impression initially, only to shock everyone by a sudden lapse into vulgar Cockney while cheering on a horse. Higgins partly conceals a grin behind his hand. At Ascot, she meets Freddy Eynsford-Hill, a young, upper-class man who becomes infatuated with her (“On the Street Where You Live”).

Higgins then takes Eliza to an embassy ball for the final test, where she dances with a foreign prince. Also present is Zoltan Karpathy, a Hungarian phonetics expert trained by Higgins, who is an impostor detector. After he dances with Eliza, he declares that she is a Hungarian princess.

Afterward, Eliza’s hard work is barely acknowledged, with all the praise going to Higgins (“You Did It”). This and his callous treatment of her, especially his indifference to her future, causes her to walk out on him, but not before she throws Higgins’ slippers at him, leaving him mystified by her ingratitude (“Just You Wait (Reprise)”). Outside, Freddy is still waiting (“On the Street Where You Live (Reprise)”) and greets Eliza, who is irritated by him as all he does is talk (“Show Me”). Eliza tries to return to her old life but finds that she no longer fits in. She meets her father, who has been left a large fortune by the wealthy American to whom Higgins had recommended him, and is resigned to marrying Eliza’s stepmother. Alfred feels that Higgins has ruined him, lamenting that he is now bound by “middle-class morality”, in which he gets drunk before his wedding day (“Get Me to the Church On Time”). Eliza eventually ends up visiting Higgins’ mother, who is outraged at her son’s callous behavior.

The next day, Higgins finds Eliza gone and searches for her (“A Hymn to Him”), eventually finding her at his mother’s house. Higgins attempts to talk Eliza into coming back to him. He becomes angered when she announces that she is going to marry Freddy and become Karpathy’s assistant (“Without You”). He makes his way home, stubbornly predicting that she will come crawling back. However, he comes to the unsettling realization that she has become an important part of his life (“I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face”). He enters his house feeling lonely, reflecting on his callous behaviour and missing Eliza so much that he turns on his gramophone and listens to her voice. Suddenly, Eliza reappears at the door and turns it off to catch his attention, with Higgins asking, “Eliza, where the devil are my slippers?”.
