COMMENT L'UNESCO RUINE LA CULTURE

Je ne sais qui disait que l’enfer est pavé de bonnes intentions. L’UNESCO nous en offre l’illustration.
En apparence il n’est rien de plus sympathique que de voir les états s’occuper de la culture. A l’intérieur d’un pays on évoque souvent les nationalisations. Nous autres Francais y sommes hélas très accoutumés. Dans ce cas particulier nous assistons à une véritable internationalisation de la culture.

L’inscription par les soins de l’UNESCO au patrimoine mondial de l’humanité ne s’arrête jamais.

Nous allons voir dans l’ordre la définition de l’UNESCO puis son coût. Enfin nous proposerons une solution.

LA DÉFINITION

Personne ne pourra nier que l’UNESCO est un redoutable machin. Il l’est d’autant plus qu’il navigue dans l’immensité incertaine des organismes de l’ONU. Ces innombrables organismes sont à l’œuvre pour créer un pouvoir totalitaire mondial. Ce même pouvoir est d’autant plus redoutable que c’est un monstre à plusieurs têtes. Toutes ces têtes travaillent dans le même sens qui est de se passer de Dieu. Certes, le nom de Dieu n’est pas prononcé. Mais les multiples agences de l’ONU travaillent pour faire des hommes et des femmes, des êtres livrés à eux-mêmes sans aucune transcendance.

Quand un état s’empare d’une activité il est courant de parler de nationalisation. Nous autres Français en avons la triste expérience.
L’UNESCO prétend internationaliser la culture.
Cette ambition est d’autant plus redoutable que personne de sensé ne peut définir vraiment ce qu’ est la culture.

Une définition possible : La culture est ce qui reste quand les personnes sont nourries et vêtues. Nul ne peut voir de limites à une telle notion. Les UNESCOCRATES l’ont bien compris et élargissent sans cesse leur champ d’action.

LE COÛT DE L’UNESCO

Nous voici devant un océan quasiment sans rivage. Essayons de résumer bien que ce soit difficile.

Il y a d’abord les bâtiments. Tout le monde connaît l’immense siège de l’UNESCO à Paris. En apparence il ne coûterait rien, ce ne serait pur mensonge. Il existe inévitablement des contre-parties que personne ne connaît et à intérêt à faire connaître. Combien de bâtiments ailleurs ? Mystère et boule de gomme.

Aux bâtiments il faut ajouter les rémunérations. Les entrepreneurs du quartier savent qu’elles sont plus que coquettes et qu’elles leur font concurrence. Là encore bouche cousue et main tendue.

A la terrible addition il faut ajouter une rubrique étonnante et massive qui est l’inscription au patrimoine mondial de l’humanité.

L’UNESCO s’est saisie arbitrairement du monopole de la culture et prétend ainsi constituer une liste du patrimoine mondial de l’humanité. Nous notons au passage la vanité d’une telle notion. Un patrimoine doit appartenir à un être vivant et l’humanité n’existe pas en tant que telle.

En attendant la course à l’inscription est ouverte, les gagnants espérant trouver des avantages. En fait c’est en partie un mirage car les contraintes sont fortes. Il faut se soumettre au diktat de la centrale pour le moindre changement. Personne ne connaît le coût de cette course et personne ne nous le dira.

LA SOLUTION

J’ai dit avec une folle imprudence que je proposerais une solution. La meilleure est impossible car ce serait la destruction de l’UNESCO dont nul n’a besoin. Les intérêts matériels et moraux attachés à ce vrai monstre l’interdisent absolument.

La seule solution pratique et raisonnable est de grignoter la montagne.

Cela implique d’abord de dire ou même crier la vérité ce que j’ai tenté modestement de faire.

Devant le scandale la vraie montagne (ou le vrai montage) pourra s’effilocher.

Il faut être plusieurs pour le faire.

Merci à ceux qui diffuseront ce blog.

Qui vivra verra.

Melvin Gordon loomed as a question mark at kickoff due to a painful case of turf toe.

“Players start looking at each other’s faults instead of covering for each other,” Rivers says. “When we lost to Oklahoma City [the year before], we were fine. No one cared what others on the team couldn’t do. It was fresh.

The Chargers running back quieted those concerns on the team’s third drive, finding a wide-open hole behind a pulling guard for a career-long 87-yard touchdown blast, the longest scoring dash allowed by the Pats since Maurice Jones-Drew’s 74-yard gallop back in 2006. It also tied a franchise-record for the Bolts.

Goodell notably did not participate in the interviews conducted with Elliott or his accuser, according to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio. Harvey also said that the group of advisors spoke to Goodell individually to give him their opinions. Article 46 of the current collective bargaining agreement gives Goodell absolute power over player discipline.

One year after a surprisingly soft market for receivers, the way to go might be a free-agent market with a wealth of high-risk, high-reward talent (listed here in no particular order):

Go FAS Racing hauler involved in accident entering Dover The hauler of the #32 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Go FAS Racing team was involved in an accident entering the Dover International Speedway infield Thursday night.

First, he needs to be active on game day, a decision Diggs already acknowledged will be made by his coaches despite his feeling ready. Second, as ESPN.com’s Courtney Cronin explains, between the recency of Diggs’ injury and the Vikings’ other pass-catching options, there might be good reason to temper expectations if he does take the field Sunday.

The union did file an appeal and has asked Judge Failla to rule on it by 7 p.m. on Wednesday.

Posted by admin on November 20, 2017 in Carolina Panthers |

Hermanson, who has coached the football team in Cleveland for 22 years and directed the band for 24, says he’s never been tempted to leave for a program with 11-man football: “I always wanted to be a head coach, and I’ve always wanted to be a band director, and there aren’t many schools you can go to where you could do both.”

In Cleveland, The MMQB staff—on a mission to cover a youth, high school, college and pro football games all in one weekend—is treated to an all-natural setting for the game. There are two small sets of bleachers dotting an expansive hill, forming a bowl as it winds around the end zone, flattens, and melts into the woods. The athletic director long ago tried to talk local pig farmers out of airing out their barns on Friday afternoons, to no avail.

The court issued a 24-hour stay on the order reinstating Elliott’s suspension to give the NFLPA an opportunity to file an emergency appeal. They could also ask the 5th Circuit Court for an en banc hearing. So this still isn’t over.

Judge Failla’s husband was one of the attorneys who worked on crafting the collective bargaining agreement, which caused some to raise the question of whether or not Failla should have recused herself from a case involving the NFL and NFLPA. This is not a true conflict of interest, and she is under no legal obligation to do so, according to sports and gaming law attorney Daniel Wallach.

It would be a shock for the judge to overturn her own ruling, and the NFLPA does not anticipate that she will. The answer was no, as expected, and the NFLPA will file with the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

The Giants, one of the logical NFC Super Bowl picks in August, are 0-4. They’ve lost two straight games on walkoff field goals.

Bill James just wrote a piece about rookies, assigning a general value to rookie seasons.

Badd Blood also marked the final call on commentary for Vince McMahon before his role changed entirely after the “Montreal Screwjob”, Owen Hart capturing the vacant IC title, and a match that included The Rock and the Road Warriors.

Taylor drew seven holding calls in the game, but Dowling wasn’t responsible for any of them. Four were on Bills center Will Grant and three on left guard Rick Schulte. Levy remembers pulling Grant aside on the sideline at one point during the game to discuss the mounting penalties.

“I said to him, ‘Will you’ve been called four times for holding,’ ” Levy remembers. “And he said, ‘Coach that’s good, I’m holding him every down.”

Taylor agrees with that assessment. “They could have called holding on every f’ing play,” he emails. “In fact I vividly remember the umpire telling me: ‘Hey, you’re going to have to fight through it, cause we can’t call it on every play … [But] I never had a problem with a backyard brawl.”

It requires a bold manger to trust a lackluster defense such as San Francisco as a streaming option, but consider that the 49ers pressured Carson Wentz on 60 percent of his dropbacks last week, the highest rate for any quarterback this season. It’s mostly about facing an Arizona offense missing it’s veteran quarterback and relying on a mistake-prone Drew Stanton, who rates 85th in passer rating among NFL quarterbacks since 2014 and just behind DeShone Kizer at 92nd in completion percentage among signal-callers over this sample. This should be a sloppy division battle, one that favors streaming the defenses involved. –McCormick

Six months later, Glass insists he was misunderstood. He wasn’t using Indiana pedigree as a litmus test, he says now, just as a nice-to-have bit of résumé padding, which was why Miller’s lack thereof was not a deal-breaker. And then Miller went and did the next-best thing. He poached Indiana native Ed Schilling from Alford’s coaching staff at UCLA.

Trick or treat: The Eliminator a scary sight for all but a few teams

Posted by admin on November 13, 2017 in Indianapolis Colts |

From 43 teams four weeks ago in the first 2017 installment of The Eliminator, we’re down to 17 as the light of a November dawn nears and the College Football Playoff committee toils behind closed doors at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center.

Each week I’m asked to react to the growing sample of production and adjust rest-of-season rankings in ESPN points leagues based on the sustainability of what we’ve already witnessed this season. As I mentioned last week, think of these rankings as a guide as if you were drafting in a points league this week. You might even take Simmons higher than 18th overall, given this is just his first two weeks in the league.

What makes the committee’s process so vastly different from the AP poll, though, is that its evaluation goes beyond those single games that highlight each résumé for better or for worse. As exciting, dramatic and meaningful as Ohio State’s win was, it’s only a fraction of what the committee will evaluate when it considers the Buckeyes.

Growing up, Matthews would spend hours at Phoenix’s Ozzie Ice studying older and bigger players, learning to navigate around them in three-on-three tournaments. Brian would show him videos of Michael Jordan pulling up from the free throw line to help his son understand the power of a quick catch-and-shoot motion.

Frazier hit three of the seven longest outs of this postseason: 403 feet, 402 and 397. This one would have tied it up if it had gone out; it didn’t, of course, but three seconds of my life were spent 100 percent convinced a game-tying home run had been hit. That is a world I lived in, briefly. For three seconds, I raised a daughter in that world, I loved and was loved in that world, I made memories and I spilled a drink. bills_007
