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.

Qui vivra verra.
The Broncos surprised outside linebacker Shane Ray this month when they informed him they won’t be picking up the fifth-year option on his rookie contract. They hope that surprise turns into a wakeup call.
Just remind them that this is the way we have to play, Lue said, before ratting off a series of things that Cleveland got right from the opening tip in Game 3.
There was Quincy Enunwa Jersey George Hill pressuring Terry Rozier full court, getting a deflection and making the young point guard labor to just get the Celtics in any kind of set. There was JR Smith with so strong a denial on Jayson Tatum that Boston had to go to its second option on the play because Smith’s physicality prevented Tatum from even receiving the ball.
Mens Josh Kline Jersey And there was LeBron James, who provided a defensive anchor that Cleveland doesn’t always get out of its four-time MVP.
Curry was among four Warriors starters who set a postseason high for minutes played Tuesday night. With swingman Andre Iguodala out because of a bruised left leg, Golden State’s depth was severely tested.
That was the subject of a PFT Live draft on Monday, with an expansion to four rounds.
Check out the picks in the attached video, and before chiming in on the wisdom (or lack thereof) of the picks, we suggest a Google search or two on Chuck Bednarik and/or Steve Van Buren.
That was the last piece for us to get over the hump and becoming one of the best teams in the league. How we defend, how we pay attention to detail and how we go about playing defense, Rockets swingman Trevor Ariza said. Tonight in the fourth quarter when it mattered, we got stops. It let us get back in the game, it let us take the lead and it let us win.
We don’t talk about it every day, but you know what guys are doing. Andre [Iguodala] has been a tycoon throughout his life. Before I got here you were hearing about the stuff that Andre was doing, Harrison Barnes was doing. Andrew Bogut was looking into some stuff. And Steph [Curry] as well. I learned just being here that a lot of these guys just think about hitting singles, and if you focus on that, you’ll eventually hit a big one.
It was Authentic Mario Chalmers Jersey only a month ago that Jon Gruden declared Obi Melifonwu and Gareon Conley really close to returning. While Conley was in team drills Tuesday during the Raiders’ organized team activities, Melifonwu remains a bystander during team drills and no longer close.
He doesn’t look close to me at all, Gruden said, via Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. I’ll leave it at that. He doesn’t look close to me at all.
Alternate Assumption 1B: Assume Ohtani is playing out of his mind right now, but he’s actually about halfway between this good as a hitter and the league average. So, 33 percent better than the league average. This would make him about as good as Edwin Encarnacion, Eric Hosmer, Daniel Murphy and Justin Smoak were last year.
Alternate Assumption 1C: Assume, at worst, Ohtani is at least a league-average hitter. We can rule out he’s awful. He’s Lucas Duda or Adam Duvall.
Authentic Womens Tyquan Lewis Jersey (I refuse to entertain Alternate Assumption 1D, which is that he’s actually an even better hitter than this. You can do that on your own time.)
The Browns made Thomas a third-round pick, the 67th overall selection. He started 33 of the 49 games he played at Miami, making 103 tackles, 11 sacks, eight pass breakups and two forced fumbles.
Callaway slid in the draft because of off-field concerns that included Florida suspending him for the 2017 season and a failed drug test at the combine in February. The receiver’s agent said a diluted sample caused the positive test.
Callaway has talent, having caught 89 passes for 1,399 yards and seven touchdowns in 26 games at UF, while returning six kickoffs for 176 yards and a score and 54 punts for 653 yards and two touchdowns.

Right now, though, the biggest challenge appears to be what to do with all the cash the owners are getting.
Baseball and the NBA have had some blockbuster sales. The Los Angeles Clippers sold for $2 billion four years ago and the Houston Rockets went for $2.2 billion last fall. The Los Angeles Dodgers commanded $2 billion in 2012 鈥?but that included the team, Dodger Stadium and, perhaps most importantly, land around it.
But those were exceptions, not the norm. Not so the NFL.
Chuck Knox, the veteran NFL coach who led the Seattle Seahawks for nine years and took the Los Angeles Rams to three straight NFC championship games, has died. He was 86.

Knox died Saturday evening, the Seahawks confirmed Sunday….
Part of the GAME Act is now moot, since it would have allowed states to offer legalized sports betting. But it would also mandate聽consumer protections, including a ban on underage betting and establish safeguards against compulsive gambling.
State Senate President聽 Stephen Sweeney said the聽legislature would move to enact the laws necessary to quickly bring聽 sports betting to fruition.
We can now seize the opportunity with a new sector of gaming that will help create jobs, generate economic growth and be an important boost to the casino industry and horse racing, said Sweeney, D-Gloucester.
And聽Joe Asher, chief executive of William Hill US, said the company was going to get ready to open for business at聽 Monmouth Park as soon as responsibly possible.
It could also open the floodgates for professional sports organizations and teams to monetize and capitalize on a new opportunity to engage fans and make money. At the forefront of that discussion is the Bruce Bowen Jersey NFL, the most popular and successful league in the United States.
Elite Malik McDowell Jersey
One of the immediate challenges presented is that the ruling will allow states to legalize and regulate gambling individually with different standards in different states. The NFL will ask Congress to enact a core regulatory framework that can create uniformity with sports gambling nationwide.
While the dust from the ruling Monday could take a while to settle, the long-term effects on the NFL could be significant.
What will the NFL do differently with legalized gambling?
For now, probably nothing.
This was one interception Blake Bortles was happy to see.
Schneider didn’t name the team or say how much they were offering for Penny, but it would have been fascinating to see a trade like that happen. Although trades for players who were just drafted are rare in the NFL, they’re not unheard of: Eli Manning and Philip Rivers were traded for each other shortly after the Chargers drafted Manning and the Giants drafted Rivers.
Although there was some talk after the Seahawks drafted Penny that the pick had been a reach, there was apparently at least one other team that not only thought the Seahawks got value for him, but that hoped the Seahawks could be persuaded to take a valuable package of picks for him.
Nunez re-signed with the Boston Red Sox on Feb. 16, inking a one-year deal worth $6 million. Nunez originally went to Boston in a deal just before the 2017 trade deadline. The San Francisco Giants sent him east in exchange for minor-league pitchers Shaun Anderson and Gregory Santos.
The Yankees eventually signed Neil Walker to bolster their infield depth.
Still unanswered at this point is why the Browns didn’t try to trade down a pick or two or three and still get Ward. Perhaps the Browns didn’t want to get cute and stray too far from No. 4, especially with the Bills likely being the only team willing to make a play for the fourth overall pick at that point. Given the Josh Allen developments from overnight Wednesday (which seem to have been forgotten nearly as quickly as they emerged), maybe the Bills sensed that they didn’t have to go quite that far up to get him.
Regardless, the Browns clearly went with need at No. 4. And it will be both the performance of Ward and Ogbah, coupled with the play of Chubb, that will shed light on whether the Browns made the right call.
Over the course of his career, Nunez has seen both sides of the Boston-New York rivalry. With the teams currently sporting the best two records in baseball, he expected an intense series, even though it’s still May.
One Dallas Cowboy-turned-TV analyst to another, Tony Romo shared a heartfelt tribute to former teammate Jason Witten on聽Twitter on Monday night.聽聽
Romo, a聽former Cowboys聽quarterback who is聽now an NFL聽analyst for CBS, wrote in the letter that Witten was the best I ever played with. Witten’s retirement mirrors Romo’s, as the former tight end聽will start his next chapter as an analyst on ESPN’s Monday Night Football.聽

Ronnie Stanley Womens Jersey It’s hard to describe how Womens Tennessee Titans Jersey special Jason Witten is.聽Sometimes in life you are lucky to come across someone that will change your life. Most of the time you don’t realize it at the moment the profound impact and impression someone will have on you. The difference with Jason Witten is that I knew right away the impact he would have on me. Not only was Jason the most talented, humble and hardest working individual on our football team, but he was one of the most genuine, good-hearted people you could ever meet.聽
I really don’t get a chance to watch a lot, because my life is busy. When you’ve been gone a lot, 10 out of the last 11 years, I’m very involved with my wife and the kids. I really don’t get a chance to sit down and watch a lot of games. Kids have a way of taking you away from the TV.
Bruce Smith Womens Jersey Weird to be away from managing?
Obviously, it’s different, when you’ve done something 11 out of the last 12 years. Your schedule is much different, but that’s all part of life. And I’m making the most out of this time at home.
The standard:聽Good luck finding a shutdown guy like Deion Sanders or Darrelle Revis (in his prime) in today’s NFL, but lesser corners are still major earners 鈥?none better than Washington’s Josh Norman, a Pro Bowler just once, but the beneficiary of a five-year, $75 million pact ($50M guaranteed).
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and retired NFL player Herschel Walker will soon join President Trump’s Council on Sports, Fitness, and Nutrition.
Axios reports that Belichick and Walker are among six people Trump is appointing to the Council, which has existed (under a variety of names) since 1956. The Council is dedicated to encouraging Americans to adopt a healthy lifestyle that includes regular physical activity and good nutrition.
They are already plus-196 with the Mirotic-Davis duo in 300 fewer minutes combined over the regular season and playoffs — equivalent to about plus-14 points per 100 possessions, 5.5 points fatter than Houston’s league-best overall mark. After about two weeks in the injury-mourning doldrums, the Pelicans scrapped their twin towers offense in favor of playing ultra-fast and unleashing Davis. Cousins cannot play as fast as New Orleans is playing now. He could not smother Damian Lillard pick-and-rolls the way Davis and Mirotic just Luc Mbah a Moute Youth jersey did.
Mirotic is even occasionally guarding centers, including Jusuf Nurkic for the last three games of New Orleans’ humiliation of Portland, so that Davis can keep calling himself a power forward if he likes. (Kevin Garnett isn’t 7 feet tall, either.)
[I’m not] inhibiting him, Bowles said, via Rich Cimini of ESPN. We’re giving him everything. He’s going to learn as he goes, and he might get the reps as he goes. We’ll make that determination in the preseason and see where we are at the end of it, but we’re not holding him back. We’re not rushing him, but we’re not holding him back at all.
Limited Youth Geno Smith Jersey
It is McCown’s job to lose entering training camp, but Darnold is expected to get the majority of reps in the preseason. The Jets also will give Teddy Bridgewater a chance.
Bowles said time will tell on whether Darnold will develop into a franchise quarterback. Darnold, who went 20-4 as a starter at USC, better. That’s why the Jets traded up to select him third overall.
Sporting News sports media columnist Michael McCarthy asked Markman about which ESPN personalities will get more airtime, ex-coach Rex Ryan’s rocky first year as an analyst and whether there will be any cast changes on Samantha Ponder’s Sunday NFL Countdown. Excerpts:

Sporting News: Can this be the highest-rated NFL Draft ever?
Connor Williams wasn鈥檛 the only draft pick the Cowboys signed before commencing their rookie minicamp.
Game Hakeem Olajuwon Jersey The NBA and NBPA conversations on eliminating the one-and-done rule are centered on the 2020 draft as the earliest possible date for change, league sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Wednesday. The Players Association’s executive committee, including president Chris Paul, won’t meet until after the NBA season.
The commission also recommends college players should be able to return to school if they go undrafted, as long as they don’t sign a professional contract. As it stands, players can test NBA draft waters without an agent, but must withdraw their name weeks before the draft should they decide to return to school.
Erroneously entering the NBA draft is not the kind of misjudgment that should deprive student-athletes of the valuable opportunity to enter college or to Jonas Brodin Youth jersey continue in college while playing basketball, said Rice, who added that the commission considered, but did not recommend, the baseball rule that requires two or three years of college if prospects don’t go straight to the draft out of high school.
Via Alex Marvez of the Sporting News, Hall of Fame middle linebacker Mike Singletary will coach the Memphis team in the developmental league.
Singletary has been out of work since a year as a defensive assistant with the Rams in 2016. He worked parts of three seasons as the head coach of the 49ers, posting an 18-22 record.
He joins Steve Spurrier (Orlando) and Brad Childress (Atlanta) as announced hires by the AAF. Other expected hires include Mike Martz (Southern California), Rick Neuheisel (Phoenix) and Jim Mora (Salt Lake City) are among the names which are expected to emerge soon.
Anybody tells me I get a chance to rep Houston, I’m gonna rep it proud. It’s all I’ve been wanting to do forever.

After Gruden left to return to coaching, ESPN decided to make significant changes to the Monday night crew, moving play-by-play man Sean McDonough to college football and bringing in Tessitore as his replacement, then persuading Witten to retire from the Cowboys and adding McFarland as Monday Night Football’s first ever on-field analyst. Their first opportunity to show they can improve upon the old broadcast will come in an old Monday night broadcaster’s return to coaching.
In every previous year that the NFL has had two Week One Monday night games, the top commentating team has worked the early game and a backup crew has worked the late game. This year ESPN apparently figured there would be synergy with having its new team work former announcer Jon Gruden’s return to Oakland, and also figured that the Rams-Raiders game would be better than the Lions-Jets game earlier in the night.
The Colts are targeting a training-camp return from quarterback Andrew Luck from his shoulder injury.
Last year, the Colts seemed to be resigned to the possibility that Luck may not be ready to participate in training camp as the offseason program concluded. It was regarded as a surprise at the time, and some regarded our effort to read between the lines as #clickbait and/or #fakenews. Obviously, it was neither. (For a change.)
This year, the target continues to be training camp.
“[The] timeline’s good,” Colts G.M. Chris Ballard said during a recent visit to PFT Live. “You know, he’s actually not even throwing a football. He’s doing everything we’re asking him to do. He’s got a program specifically laid out that puts his timeline to be back at training camp. He didn’t want to skip a step. I don’t know if he skipped a step last year, but I think he felt the pressure of coming back.
The Los Angeles Chargers will keep running back Melvin Gordon through at least the 2019 season after they picked up the fifth-year option on his contract Monday.
General manager Tom Telesco announced the news at a press conference, per Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk.
Warren Sharp broke down the history of fifth-year options for running backs.
Limited Mens Michael Burton Jersey The Chargers selected Gordon with the No. 15 overall pick out of Wisconsin in 2015, and he signed a four-year deal worth more than $10.6 million with an option available for the 2019 campaign, per Spotrac.
Everything else is hustle and projection: Bryan doesn’t find the ball well on misdirection, he lacks a plan when blockers latch on, and he can be steered away from the quarterback because he doesn’t control his momentum once he blasts through the line. Bryan’s combine results were yummy, but his collegiate production (5.5 career sacks and just 30 solo tackles in three years, one as a starter) are low, even by the standards of interior linemen.
While Verlander was pitching a three-hitter, striking out 14 and not walking anyone working eight shutout innings, five Yankees pitchers kept it a nothing-nothing ballgame deep into this Texas night at Minute Maid Park.
And then after Verlander’s night ended after 105 pitches, the Yankees promptly pulled out a series-evening 4-0 win by teeing off on Astros closer Ken Giles.
The first three runs came courtesy of catcher Gary Sanchez, who walloped a two-on, one-out homer after the Astros had a mound meeting to decide if they wanted to load the bases for Aaron Hicks with first base open.
They opted to pitch to Sanchez and Giles’ first pitch was a knee-high inside fastball that was crushed and carried over the wall in dead center.
Youth Jeff Locke Jersey The Yankees had just one scoring threat until the ninth when Aaron Judge greeted Giles with a line single to right and Didi Gregorius Ramon Humber Womens Jersey followed with a double to left center.
It’s why five or six teams will go ahead and draft a quarterback in the first round this year, despite questions surrounding each of them
That future uncertainty extends beyond Ansah, too, as only Anthony Zettel among the top four defensive ends on the roster is under contract beyond this season. And even Zettel is signed only through 2019 on his rookie deal. Same goes for the Lions’ interior defensive line, more or less.
It’s also why the three edge rushers who seem like first-round locks might go higher than expected, though most draft analysts agree there’s a considerable dropoff from Bradley Chubb 鈥?a likely top-five pick 鈥?to Davenport and Landry.
Authentic Kids Filip Chlapik Jersey And, yes, it’s why if one of them is still there when the Lions are on the clock, Quinn might feel pressured to make that his pick.
Authentic Kids Jayson Tatum Jersey Comcast moved NFL Network to the Digital Starter tier from Digital Preferred in 2016 when NBC took half of the TNF package sharing it with CBS. But now, subscribers to Digital Starter have been informed that NFL Network will be moving back to Digital Preferred (Comcast’s second-most popular tier) and Sports Entertainment starting on July 1. NFL Network and Comcast have had a long period of peace after having a prolonged carriage battle last decade. Authentic David Rundblad Jersey When NFL Network launched, Comcast originally put NFL Network on its sports tier and would not put it on its widely distributed packages.
Then in 2009, the two sides came to an agreement when Comcast put NFL Network on the Digital Preferred package. The two sides also agreed for Comcast to pick up RedZone and the cable provider’s decision regarding NFL Network does not affect RedZone. This will put NFL Network back where it used to be on Comcast’s systems before 2016. In addition to NFL Network, Fox will simulcast the games in Spanish on Fox Deportes.
