Edward Snowden on FRANCE 24



FOOD FOR THOUGHT

3'40''
 [... But what’s really changed, most dramatically from the world of 2013 to the world of today (9 sept 2019) is everybody is aware that Facebook is up to no good, that Google is up to no good... ]


4’05
[... It’s technology that’s enabling this and making it all possible for the first time. ...]
.......................................... 

Enjoy the whole video that was released on youtube on Sept. 9, 2019.
Time flies but those 6 years have been for the best.
Except for Julian Assange who is in Belmarsh Prison (U.K.)

I'm glad Edward Snowden is able to move more or less freely in Russia. 





Incredible video - explainig scale - from earth to space to human body

Back to school

You've probably heard of Greta Thunberg.
You weren't born when Severn Cullis-Suzuki took a stand in the Rio Summit. 
It took place in 1992. 
And the first international conference on the Human environment also called 'The Earth summit' (Now COP 21, COP 24... Conference Of Parties they call it these days) first took place in 1972 in Sweden.  I was 11 then... 47 years ago!

Severn Cullis-Suzuki is the girl at the beginning of this video that was posted on Vimeo two years ago. You were born then!

Truth about reality TV

I sure knew Reality shows had to be immoral, very wrong and the like...

I've just watched this video and since it is well subtitled, I thought I'd post it here.

I've not had TV for 40 years. Time flies. The strange skylights never appealed to me.

( The famous French Satirical weekly newspaper has, as long as I can remember, called them: "Les étranges lucarnes")

Ok, ok, I'm a screen addict too, I know, I know. Often wonder what would happen in case of a major blackout or if our governments used the kill switch. Do you? (wonder?!)

So the video below has already obtained 3.293.785 views!

Take good care all.

Whistleblowing is Key- The Iraq war was based on lies. That's a FACT





Beginning of the trailer. And I can't help remembering 
what  some minister of propaganda once said. 
When reality exceeds fiction, again :-)
........................................................................................................................
Tony Blair : - What we know is that Saddam has this material.


Keira Knightley’s character :
We don’t know that, I mean, he just keeps repeating the lie.
Just because you’re the Prime Minister, it doesn’t mean you’re allowed to 
make up your own facts.

...............................................
As Julian Assange said :  "It's not conspiracy when you have proof."
Try to open your minds all and ecosia (I know, google has appeared in language)
Julian Assange. Got it?

#Trashtag challenge


Don’t be surprised to see 2nde B students picking up litter and therefore, cleaning Arago High School next Tuesday, April 2nd, from 11 to twelve.
This is OUR school. We want it pristine, we don’t want it dirty.

It’s the #Trashtag challenge. You know, clearing a space from all trash being carelessly thrown away by irresponsible people.

WE ARE RESPONSIBLE
We hope you’ll see the difference and PLEASE, don’t throw away anything anymore on the ground. There are trash bags. Use them ! Don’t be careless anymore.

Our environment matters !
