RIP Mr Charlot

Dreadful News, we're mourning. Our headmaster, Mr Charlot died today at 12 pm from a heart attack. We are deeply saddened by this terrible news and I can’t think of anything to say apart from the fact that he was a great headmaster whose memory we will always cherish. Of course, we think of his family and offer them our most sincere condolences. We want them to know that he was deeply respected by all the members Arago: teachers, workers and students. Chaleureux, Humble, Attentionné, Respectueux, Lucide, Ouvert, Tolérant. Ça j’ai eu envie de le faire en français. Pour le RIP, j'ai toujours pensé que les gens que j''appréciais et que j'avais le grand chagrin de voir partir méritaient beaucoup mieux que du repos et pour moi, Revel In Peace est un voeu plus fort et plus réconfortant. Je vois mal Mr Charlot se reposer mais je le vois plus se réjouir de savoir qu'il reverra ceux qu'il a aimés.

Hank the tank ...#hankthetank

500-pound bear is making headlines in the U.S. No comment, but really, I advise you to follow this link and watch the video in this CBS news footage. Quite impressive, especially the young woman. Wasn't she incredibly courageous? And aren't bears impressive? Teddy bears are cute. Bears are beautiful. https://www.today.com/video/500-pound-bear-on-the-run-after-ransacking-california-homes-133740613658

Into Eternity

Onkalo (Finland) Spent Nuclear Fuel Repository A must-see. As Marco Kaltofen says, "Dry-casking is a big improvement over vulnerable fuel pools; but it's a temporary solution and subject to build-up of dangerous daughter isotopes over time. Our descendants will eventually build a geologic repository for our stuff, but they won't be happy about it."
