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.
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.
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.

Zay Jones is with family and is going to be fine, the Buffalo Bills receiver’s father said Wednesday, two days after his son was arrested following a naked, bloody argument with his brother.
Robert Jones posted a note on his Twitter account saying Jones is with me and his mom, while adding he’s going to be fine!

The Bills, on Tuesday night, said in a statement they were aware of an incident involving Jones and Shaquille O’Neal Jersey were still gathering additional information.
It remains to be seen if this video has any bearing on the financial investment the Giants will make in the 25-year old Beckham, who is coming off surgery to repair a fractured left ankle and is looking to become the highest-paid receiver in NFL history. Mike Evans signed a five-year extension Friday worth $82.5 million, an average of $16.5 million per year, with the Buccaneers. Antonio Brown of the Steelers last year signed a four-year, $68 million deal, an average of $17 million per year. Figure Beckham wants to exceed those contracts.
Given his eventful, turbulent four years in the NFL, filled with record-breaking production and what at times were bizarre controversies, this video is another reminder of what Beckham brings to the table off the field.
Jermaine Gresham Kids Jersey Vincent said the competition committee will propose that the league eliminate the going to the ground rule, which NFL Network reported as a possibility last month. Also to be proposed for elimination will be the rule that slight movement of the ball in a receiver’s hands should negate a catch.
We worked backward, Vincent said. We looked at plays and said: Do you want that to be a catch? And then we applied that to the rule.
Slight movement of the ball, it looks like we’ll reverse that. Going to the ground, it looks like that’s going to be eliminated. And we’ll go back to the old replay standard of reverse the call on the field only when it’s indisputable.
According to the Washington Post, the proposed rule changes could be finalized soon and will be presented to team owners at the annual owners meetings next week in Orlando, Fla. Giants owner John Mara, a member of the competition committee, told ESPN last month he thinks the group is unanimous that the catch rule needs to be changed.
Editor’s Picks Patriots add DE Clayborn, RB Hill, sources say The Patriots have reached agreements with DE Adrian Clayborn, RB Jeremy Hill and OT Matt Tobin, sources told ESPN.
Chung, who turns 31 in August, was referred to by Bill Belichick this past season as one of the best players in the NFL and is valued for his toughness and versatility.
He was scheduled to earn $2 million this season and have a salary-cap charge of $3.8 million.
The Patriots have some top players set for free agency in 2019, a group headlined by receivers Brandin Cooks, defensive end Trey Flowers and starting right guard Shaq Mason.
To all my olinemen, you guys deserve the credit for anything that I received credit for.
I thank you for helping make my career.
To all the trainers, team docs, strength coaches, chiropractors, massage therapists, physical therapists, body gurus thanks for making sure I was on the field.
To all the people who made my life easier at the facility (ops, pr, equipment staff, cafe workers, custodians) thanks and your work doesn’t go unnoticed.
The defensive back rejected the offer and accepted a one-year deal from the Houston Texans worth $6.5 million, with up to $500,000 in incentives if he plays in all 16 games.
There isn’t a substantial difference between the two figures, but more often than not, NFL players try to obtain the most lucrative deal in free agency.
Mathieu reportedly wanted to sign with a team that values defensive football, and apparently found a fit in Texans DC Romeo Crennel’s scheme.
Still just 25 years old, the former third-round selection adds a versatile chess piece to a talented Houston defense.
It was the ninth meeting between Nickal and Martin with Nickal winning six of the previous eight. Nickal and Martin did not meet in last year’s NCAA Championships with Nickal winning the title and Martin finishing fifth.
“I think about that match (freshman year) every day almost,” said Martin. “It’s something that sticks in my mind. I feel that, one of my goals was to be a four-time national champion coming to Penn State.
The Post is now reporting that McCabe, like Comey, kept memos detailing his interactions with Trump 锟斤拷 memos that could help bolster McCabe锟斤拷s credibility, insulating him from allegations that he misstated or misremembered his interactions with Trump.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe late Friday night, about 26 hours before McCabe’s retirement, citing an inspector general report from the Justice Department that had found that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor 锟斤拷 including under oath 锟斤拷 on multiple occasions.

Game Mens Geno Smith Jersey Matt Zapotowsky contributed to this report.
Washington can go a few different ways in free agency. Defensive line would be nice, though Jonathan Allen’s strong rookie year and another rookie this year could create a force.
These Redskins might be better off grabbing a running back or two on the open market as buy-low options. Samaje Perine Frederik Andersen Womens Jersey flashed upside last year, but he isn’t enough锟斤拷especially with guys like Adrian Peterson, LeGarrette Blount and Jeremy Hill on the market.
Getting a downhill runner or two to complement a pass-catching back like Chris Thompson will help squeeze more out of the Smith investment, especially if receivers like Josh Doctson keep coming along to help round out the attack.
The Cardinals released Mathieu on Wednesday after he declined to take a pay cut.
As I noted in today’s Best Buys article, Green has no business being the most expensive option at his position on any slate, which speaks to tonight’s canvas.
The Thunder meanwhile boast a top-10 unit that hasn’t had to travel in more than a week and is trying to earn home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. Bogdanovic’s average shot distance is also up over 16 feet, giving him a low floor, and without much hope for other counting numbers, I have zero Omri Casspi Jersey interest in him in this spot.

After 149 games in the NCAA, Bryant Christian was playing his final game for AIC on March 11, but was injured on his first shift of the game. It turned out to be a fractured tibia. He was done playing, but he remained with his teammates on the bench. He was their captain, and he had missed only one other game in his entire college career.
On the last shift of the game, down 3-0 and with his college career at its end, Christian (No. 11) went over the boards for one more shift on a broken leg.
Robinson was impressed by new Bears coach Matt Nagy, saying I like what he did as offensive coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs,Robinson?also tweeted?What’s good Chicago!!!? with a picture of himself in a Bulls game jersey on Tuesday,The Bears were looking to upgrade their struggling receiving corps and surround quarterback Mitchell Trubisky with more playmakers,Robinson had a strong training camp last year and looked like he would be an integral part of the offense.
That, paired with his prodigious intelligence and what one can only presume is a near-perfect understanding of the 49ers’ scheme (which was ripped off from Seattle) could make him a much-needed veteran leader for a young and talented secondaryBut he’s also a big personality who might not fit the 49ers locker room,Sherman is unlikely to go into the 49ers locker room and demand respect and admiration 鈥?he’s too smart to do that 鈥?but he is a big personality who could ruffle feathers, particularly if he’s not playing at the level we’ve come to expect from him over the last seven years,Underwhelming play and a big personality 鈥?that’s typically a bad combinationSigning Sherman hurts the Seahawks in ways they probably won’t admit,The Seahawks were looking to re-sign Sherman if the price was right.
Denver Broncos defensive end Adam Gotsis was arrested in Atlanta last week. He is accused of rape in an alleged incident in 2013, when he was a student at Georgia Tech.
Limited Kids Deion Sanders Jersey
Gotsis, the Broncos’ second-round pick in the 2016 draft, surrendered to Fulton County authorities on March 7. According to Fulton County jail records, he was released later that day after he posted a $50,000 bond. He has not yet been formally charged.
While we were disappointed to learn of the turn the investigation was taking, we steadfastly maintain that the allegations are false, the statement read. We will continue to advocate strongly for Adam’s innocence.
Gotsis is a native of Melbourne, Australia, and came to the United States to play football at Georgia Tech. He played at the school from 2012 to 2015.
With Dontae Johnson, who started all 16 games a year ago, set to become a free agent, the Niners entered this offseason with Ahkello Witherspoon and nickelback K’Waun Williams as their only corners under contract with extensive league experience (four years between them).
Sherman has a long history with the Bay Area, having played college football at nearby Stanford before becoming one of the Niners’ biggest adversaries during the heated Seahawks-Niners rivalry that spanned from 2011 to 2013.
The tolling rule applies to players who, in the final season of their contract, remain on PUP as of their team’s sixth regular-season game. As in Shead’s case, that includes players on one-year deals. A restricted free agent last offseason, Shead signed a one-year deal worth $1.2 million. So if his contract were to toll, he’d be signed for 2018 at the same amount.
Authentic Kids Terrance Mitchell Jersey If he returns, he’ll likely play outside opposite marquee X receiver Josh Gordon, with Landry playing in the slot. It would provide new quarterback Tyrod Taylor with a trio of dangerous receivers, and he’ll Bob Gainey Authentic Jersey also have Duke Johnson and David Njoku as targets. The Browns will also likely add some weapons to what they hope is a high-powered passing game in the draft, where they have five picks in the first 64, including No. 1 and No. 4 overall.
Well, the actual population has been dwindling in recent years, so I think that’s contributing to it. And compared to my time, when I was young, almost everyone was playing baseball. Nowadays, there are a lot more different sports that are available in Japan. So I think it’s those two reasons.
It seems like you’ve made it a point to stay involved in the game since retiring. Do you see yourself continuing to work within baseball and why is that something you want to do?
I don’t really have a specific vision or plan going forward. I enjoy what I do. Baseball is something I have a lot of appreciation of what it’s given me, so I feel like I want to give back in some capacity.
Speaking on CC Sabathia’s R2C2 Players’ Tribune podcast, the Yankees slugger said he likely won’t be participating in the event again.
“I think I am one and done,’’ Judge said, via the New York Post .
Judge dazzled en route to winning the showdown in Miami last season, smashing four homers that surpassed 500 feet.
On the other hand, he batted .329 with 30 home runs, 66 RBIs and a 1.139 OPS in 84 games ahead of the Home Run Derby but later struggled as he hit .195 with 14 home runs, 31 RBIs and a .797 OPS in the first 60 games after the All-Star break.
Judge, who turns 26 next month, remains a “work in progress until Opening Day” as he rehabilitates his surgically repaired left shoulder. The reigning AL Rookie of the Year is expected to split time at DH and in the outfield with newly acquired Giancarlo Stanton.
The point of contention lies with the concern over teams stealing signs as the Red Sox were accused of doing during the 2017 season. Astros pitcher Lance McCullers expressed himself that he would need to meet with his catcher more with runners on base to prevent sign theft.
The Pistons have been reeling in recent weeks, sinking in the Eastern Conference, but that may soon change.
The Clippers sent star power forward Blake Griffin to the Pistons for Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley, Boban Marjanovic, a first-round and a second-round draft pick. Detroit also acquired Brice Johnson and Willie Reed in the trade.
During the media tour, Rooney met Ellen DeGeneres, as the team appeared together on her show. “To see, and meet, her was really cool,” Rooney says.
On Saturday, Rooney and her teammates were guests of honor at the NHL Stadium Series game between the Maple Leafs and the Capitals, drawing a long ovation from the sellout crowd at Navy-Marine Corps Stadium after they were introduced after the second period. Rooney got one of the biggest cheers during player introductions. “It’s awesome. I watch these every year. The emotions I have are indescribable,” she said.
Then there was her most surprising congratulatory note, from another goalie she idolizes: Hope Solo of the U.S. women’s national soccer team, a team of particular interest to Rooney.
Noah, 32, signed a largely untradeable four-year, $72 million contract in the summer of 2016, when Phil Jackson was the Knicks president. Now, with a glut of big men on current president Steve Mills and GM Scott Perry’s roster, the 11-year veteran has appeared in only seven games this season, averaging 5.7 minutes, 1.7 points and 2.0 rebounds.
Auction: In this format, instead of drafting in a specific order, you will have a set budget and get to bid on each player in an auction format. This really tests your skills on an extra level, because not only do you need to know player values, but you also have to consider your budget during the auction draft. Make sure that all of your managers are committed to being online from the beginning to the end of the auction, because our system will automatically bid for any manager not online. While this helps fill the void, it also wreaks havoc on the prices of players and makes it difficult for active bidders to find values. This type of draft is appealing because you can get any player you want if you’re willing to go for the highest bid, but it also takes about twice as long as a snake draft.
The St. Louis Cardinals have signed shortstop Paul DeJong to a six-year contract extension, the team announced Monday.
The deal is worth $26 million, according to multiple reports.
DeJong, 24, should serve as the Cardinals’ everyday shortstop in 2018 after a rookie season in which he hit .285 with 25 home runs and 65 RBIs.

His third 3 of the period cut the Atlanta lead to 97-91. A follow shot by Domantas Sabonis, who had 14 points, pulled the Pacers to 101-99.
Schroder answered with a layup with 44 seconds remaining, and then added another driving layup following an Indiana turnover.
“We wanted to be the aggressors but they came out harder than us,” Sabonis said.
The last time the Grizzlies recorded a winless full calendar month was when the Vancouver Grizzlies lost all 17 of their contests in March 1996 during the franchise’s inaugural season. “We should’ve won some of the games in the month of February,” Gasol said. Interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff added: “You go back and look through the month, we had opportunities to win games. We had games that came down to the stretch where we just weren’t able to make enough plays.”
The Grizzlies problems started almost immediately as Memphis committed six turnovers in the first 3 minutes. “Turnovers got the best of us early,” Bickerstaff said. “.I think we had nine turnovers in the first quarter, and some of those were careless turnovers.”
What makes the Wizards’ streak impressive is that they’re doing it without All-Star point guard John Wall. It was their eighth win in the 11 games since he underwent successful knee surgery on January 31.
“In his absence, we’re making sure everybody steps up,” Kelly Oubre Jr. said
Dallas settled for a 49-47 lead at the half after opening an 11-point lead in the first quarter and 14-point advantage in the second. The Mavericks raced ahead 10-0 just 3:12 in on Barnes’ driving dunk and went up 21-10 on Smith’s jumper with 4:51 left.
Dallas stretched the lead to 42-28 on JJ Barea’s 3-pointer 4:04 into the second quarter, but an 11-0 run, capped by LaVine’s three-point play, got the Bulls back into the game.
The Mavericks made their first five field goal attempts of the third, including consecutive 3s by Wesley Matthews, Smith and Barnes to open the lead to 62-52. Dallas stretched the lead to 73-59 on Smith’s running layup midway through the quarter.
Nearly 24 hours after her controversial rendition of the national anthem, Fergie issued a statement Monday addressing criticism of her performance at Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game.
“I’ve always been honored and proud to perform the national anthem and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA,” the Black Eyed Peas singer said in the statement. “I’m a risk taker artistically, but clearly this rendition didn’t strike the intended tone. I love this country and honestly tried my best.”
While Fergie tried something different with her national anthem, not everybody was cheering.
Her slow, bluesy rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” before the 67th edition of the NBA’s annual showcase wasn’t particularly well received at Staples Center or on social media.
A low chuckle rumbled through the sold-out arena after Fergie finished the first line of the song with a throaty growl on “the dawn’s early light.”
The Forum in nearby Inglewood, California, was the site of one of the most famous national anthems in sports history during another NBA All-Star Game 35 years ago.
Marvin Gaye’s touching rhythm-and-blues version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the 1983 game was initially criticized but has since gained widespread acceptance as a groundbreaking musical performance.
Fergie is more likely to join the long list of curious versions of the anthem, even though she showed far more impressive vocal chops than the likes of Roseanne Barr or Carl Lewis.
Pederson kept his foot on the gas. Calling a trick play with a tight end passing to your quarterback on fourth-and-goal from the Patriots’ 1-yard line is basically the definition of aggressive. That’s some real Saints-style, let’s open the second half of a Super Bowl with an onside kick level shit.
Taking a risk to extend a 15-12 lead over New England with 1:30 left in the half doesn’t have a ton of downside. The Eagles were either going to extend their lead to 10 points or they were going to give New England the ball on their own 1-yard line, trust the defense, and know there was still an entire half to play.
