I was taken aback when a co-worker asked me where I was born
  I answered the Philippines, of course
 then he said, ” I mean, on what island .?????” I thought for a minute before replying
.Uhm
 Luzon Island ???

I  told him I’d  always thought of my birthplace  as a country and not an island   ( if that makes sense). Well, the Philippines is comprised of 7, 641 islands ( or 7, 107  at  high tide, ha ha ) , and though I find  his question  a bit strange, I have to admit it   makes  sense
  After all, the former name of the Philippines was  Las Islas Filipinas ( as a Spanish colony.. .. islas means islands ) , Philippine Islands ( as  American colony) , Commonwealth of the Philippines, ( still American colony) , then Republic of the Philippines ( after independence)

Cottage Bakery & Cafe – Pembina Highway


Dining with Donald

Every so often I run across a place, and wonder to myself, how did I miss this place for so long. Cottage Bakery on Pembina Highway is one such place. I lived just off Pembina and McGillivray for the best part of nine years. I was about four blocks from Cottage Bakery and yet somehow never managed to visit. In the end, my first visit came about 15 years after I left the area, because I needed change for the bus. I simply bought a coffee to go. However, that first visit was enough to convince me that I wanted and needed to return.

Alexa Amazon


Ce jour, nous avons dĂ©cidĂ© de tester un produit : Le “smartspeaker” (dit en français : L’assistant intelligent ).

Pour ce, nous avons reçu le “smartspeaker” de celui d’Amazon : Alexa. ( Alexa Echo Dot 2e GĂ©nĂ©ration)

Alexa Amazon Echo Dot

Alexa Amazon Echo Dot

Pour ĂȘtre franc, outre les usages partiels et rapides auprĂšs des entreprises et groupes qui nous avaient montrĂ©s Ă  l’Ă©poque ce produit,   nous n’avions pas eu l’occasion de le tester longtemps et d’une maniĂšre plus profonde.

Ce fut une vĂ©ritable joie et excitation que de paramĂ©trer ce petit joujou, qui du premier abord pourrait nous paraĂźtre comme “gadget ” mais au final, nous nous y habituons et il devient partie intĂ©grante du paysage de nos bureaux ( et / ou de nos maisons).

Il a fallu choisir entre la langue anglaise et française ( eh oui…Nous pouvons choisir la langue, cependant, ce qui en dĂ©coule est important:

=> Si nous optons pour le FR, nous serons connectĂ©s directement sur le “amazon shop” de france. Cad nous aurons tous les mĂ©dias, sites parlant français. Exit , les mĂ©dias autres que Français cad ceux des US et UK, russie, inde, arabes , hĂ©breux … bref toutes les langues du monde ( A la radio, nous sommes plus que polyglottes et plus de 15 langues cohabitent puisque nous diffusons mondialement et que nous ne sommes pas focalisĂ©s sur la France ou l’europe seulement).

Donc, il a fallu paramĂ©trer… Le français fut choisi in fine, Ă©tant donnĂ© que nous sommes Ă  PARIS  ( attention, nous parlons du Test effectuĂ© en français, cependant, nos diffĂ©rents “smartspeakers” dans nos studios , sont paramĂ©trĂ©s dans diverses langues. Selon la team / le pĂŽle en charge ( Nos Ă©quipes sont organisĂ©es par “continent + langue” )

Comme vous verrez sur cette vidĂ©o, en saluant Alexa, il a fallu la calmer et l’arrĂȘter 🙂  puisque la machine Ă©tait paramĂ©trĂ©e pour nous annoncer les principaux Ă©vĂšnements de la journĂ©e, rien qu’en la saluant ( “bonjour” ) : Donc ceci est Ă  revoir

C’est la faute de notre Ă©quipe qui a voulu s’amuser. Cependant, en tant normal, Alexa rĂ©pond “Bonjour + le nom de la personne, qu’elle reconnait par la voix ).

La machine est personnalisable.

 

 

En fait, cet outil est interessant Ă  divers niveaux :

Outre le fait qu’Alexa  nous lance , les radios ( dont la nĂŽtre RadioSatellite) , nous avons pu lui demander de rajouter sur notre calendrier / agenda, divers Ă©vĂšnements.

Vocalement, nous lui demandons de rajouter” Alexa, rajoute sur la TO DO LIST, mon rendez vous demain Ă  16h00 Ă  Madame Dupond Ă  l’adresse XX Ă  Londres ou Ă  New York ou Paris

Ce rendez vous est rajoutĂ© immĂ©diatement sur un calendrier dĂ©jĂ  crĂ©Ă© aussi bien,  sur notre smartphone  que sur la machine (  Application qu’on a dĂ©jĂ  installĂ©, aussi, sur nos smartphones) .

alexa smartspeaker amazon

alexa smartspeaker amazon

Ne pas oublier que les “smartspeakers” fonctionnent en harmonie avec les “smartphones” ( ou tablettes) notamment lors du paramĂ©trage du dĂ©marrage.

Il suffit de lui demander le matin ” Alexa, il y a quoi sur ma TO DO LIST pour aujourd’hui?  ” et voilĂ …Alexa nous rappelle tout et nous n’avons plus aucun pretexte de louper une rĂ©union ou rendez-vous.

Nous pouvons supprimer “vocalement” aussi un rendez vous. Il sera supprimé  (aussi ) du calendrier existant sur notre smartphone.

Pour la France, nous avons pu dĂ©couvrir un calendrier ( c’est obligĂ©, il faut qu’il y ait un calendrier en SKILL pour le rapprocher avec la machine Alexa.)  :

Le calendrier   https://www.any.do/

any.do

any.do

 

En tout cas, c’est l’une des fonctions … Il existe des milliers de Skills ( Une sKILL c’est l’Ă©quivalent des applications pour smartphones). Skills Ă  activer sur Alexa. ( Contrairement aux apps des smartphones,  sur ces machines, nous n’installons pas de Skill…Pas de tĂ©lĂ©chargment…c’est juste l’activation ou la dĂ©sactivation => DĂ©sactivation  par dĂ©faut )

Pour revenir à Alexa  amazon:

C’est un vrai assistant personnel , cet outil. La qualitĂ© du son est plus que correcte. MĂȘme que nous pouvons connecter Alexa Ă  des enceintes  BlueTooth si l’on veut ( ce n’est pas obligĂ© mais c’est une option en plus Ă  notre disposition ).

Pour notre part, il nous sert pour l’instant de calendrier, de moteur de recherche vocal pour nous trouver un bon restaurant tous les midis, les itinĂ©raires, les grĂšves et pannes de transports en commun ou routiers. Evidemment pour Ă©couter les flash infos ou les radios etc..

Pour rĂ©sumer, Alexa est utile. Ce n’est pas “uniquement” un gadget Ă  offrir Ă  sa famille. C’est aussi un outil de travail pour une meilleure productivitĂ© et un calendrier  vocal / Ă©crit que les Ă©quipes peuvent mettre en commun pour le suivi des journĂ©es, rendez vous et TO DO LISTS

La terre est plate?


La terre est plate pour certains : Organisation d’une croisiĂšre pour le prouver ?

La « Flat Earth International Conference Â» veut prouver au monde entier, Ă  la terre « notamment Â» ( !!) que cette derniĂšre est plate.

Pour ce faire, une croisiÚre sera organisée en 2020 qui le prouvera (ait )

La croisiĂšre n’est autre qu’un paquebot hyper luxe incluant tous les services gastronomiques et ludiques relevant de cette catĂ©gorie.

Malgré toutes les incohérences de leur logique, les partisans de la terre plate persistent dans leur projet.

Entretemps, la croisiĂšre annoncĂ©e ne pourra qu’ĂȘtre payante.

A chacun sa foi, sa croyance, ses convictions.

Il faut de tout pour faire ce monde et peupler « la terre Â» qu’elle soit plate, ronde ou triangulaire.

BELLA CIAO


Bella ciao” is an Italian folk song, and later an anti-fascist resistance song. It was used by the Italian partisans during the Italian Civil War between 1943 and 1945 in their struggle against the fascist Italian Social Republic and its Nazi German allies.

It is used worldwide as an anti-fascist hymn of freedom and resistance. The song has much older origins though in the hardships of the mondina women, the paddy field workers in the late 19th century who sang it as a protest against harsh working conditions in the paddy fields in North Italy.

“Bella ciao” was originally sung as “Alla mattina appena alzata” by seasonal worker of paddy fields of rice, especially in Italy’s Po Valley from the late 19th century to the first half of the 20th century with different lyrics.

The work of monda (weeding) was widespread in northern Italy in that era. The work consisted of removing the weeds growing in rice fields that hindered the healthy growth of young rice plants. It took place during the flooding of the fields, from the end of April to the beginning of June every year, during which the delicate shoots needed to be protected, during their first stages of their development, from temperature differences between the day and the night.

It consisted of two phases: transplanting the plants and pruning the weeds. The work of monda was an extremely tiring task, carried out mostly by women known as mondinas (rice-weeders) that came of the poorest social classes. The workers would spend their workdays with their bare feet in water up to their knees and their back bent for many hours. The atrocious working conditions, long hours and very low pay led to constant dissatisfaction and led, at times to rebellious movements and riots in the early years of the twentieth century.

The struggles against the supervising padroni was even harder with the abundance of clandestine workers ready to compromise even further the already low wages just to get work. Besides “Bella ciao”, similar songs by the mondina women included “Sciur padrun da li beli braghi bianchi” and “Se otto ore vi sembran poche”.

Other similar versions of the antecedents of “Bella ciao” appeared over the years, indicating that “Alla mattina appena alzata” must have been composed in the later half of the 19th century. The earliest written version is dated 1906 and comes from near Vercelli, Piedmont.

 

“Bella ciao” was revived by the anti-fascist resistance movement active in Italy between 1943 and 1945 with different lyrics of resistance. The author of the lyrics is unknown.

In addition to the original Italian, the song has been recorded by various artists in many different languages, including #Arabic, #Bosnian, #Breton, #Catalan, #Chinese (known as “ć•Šæœ‹ć‹ć†è§“), #Croatian, #Danish, #English, #Esperanto, #Finnish, #German, #Hungarian, #Japanese, #Persian, #Norwegian, #Occitan, #Russian, #Serbian, #Slovenian, #Spanish, #Syriac, #Tagalog, #Telugu, #Thai, #Tibetan, and #Ukrainian.

 

A rewritten version of the song can be heard on Chumbawamba’s acoustic album A Singsong and a Scrap.

Former Yugoslav punk rock bands KUD Idijoti and later Goblini recorded their versions of the track.

Hungarian punk rock band Aurora has performed the song.

Folk musician Leslie Fish has written and performed several versions of the song, one of which can be found on the album Smoked Fish.

Folk artist Mirah lent her voice to this song on her 2004 album, To All We Stretch the Open Arm.

Anita Lane recorded a version in English for her 2001 album, Sex O’Clock.

Breton folk punk band Les Ramoneurs de menhirs recorded a version in Breton and French but called it “BellARB”.

Danish psychedelic rock group Savage Rose have recorded a version of this song on the albums En Vugge Af StÄl from 1982 and Ild Og Frihed (1989).

San Francisco punk band La Plebe perform “Bella Ciao” on their album, Brazo en Brazo.

French-born musician of Spanish origin Manu Chao has also recorded a version of the song.

The tune has been used in a song in the Indian Tollywood movie Businessman, starring Mahesh Babu, Music by S.S.Thaman.

Italian ska punk band Talco recorded the song on their 2006 album Combat Circus.

Konstantin Wecker and Hannes Wader, two German “Liedermacher” performed it live on their collaboration album Was fĂŒr eine Nacht.

Yugoslav musician Goran Bregovic has recorded one version on his album Champagne for Gypsies (2012).

German folk duo Zupfgeigenhansel recorded a free adaptation on their 1982 album Miteinander that, instead of glorifying the death of the partisan, paints him as a reluctant anti-hero who is scared and despises war, but feels he has no other choice because of the atrocities he has seen.

Thai anti-fascism band, “Faiyen” (àč„àžŸàč€àžąàč‡àž™, “Cold Flame”) recorded a Thai version of the song called “Plodploy Plianplaeng” (Thai: àž›àž„àž”àž›àž„àčˆàž­àžą àč€àž›àž„àž”àčˆàžąàž™àčàž›àž„àž‡, “Liberate and Change”). It has been used by the Red Shirts anti-fascism group since 2011.
