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.

Functionally, it’s a multi-day scouting opportunity-slash-midseason summit attended by all 30 teams.
1. Having watched this annual event on television in the past, I can now confirm that the G-League Showcase is not for the faint of heart. But for scouts, executives and writers alike, it’s also a massive daily slog made palatable mostly by the fact that the ability to sit in one or two places for 12 hours at a time and retain a reasonable percentage of cognitive function is a prerequisite for anyone remotely interested in working in basketball.

It was back in early May 2009 when Gruden launched this new phase of his life—he and a top producer at ESPN sat across a table at the Michelin-starred Gramercy Tavern in Manhattan’s Flatiron District to talk television. Gruden had been fired by the Buccaneers months earlier after his seventh season with the team, six seasons removed from winning a Super Bowl over the Raiders. Jay Rothman, who had produced Monday Night Football since ESPN acquired the rights beginning in 2006, told the coach he believed he could be the Y2K version of Madden—“with the Chucky factor,” Rothman added, referring to the scar-faced, redheaded doll antagonist of the Child’s Play horror films.
Eight seasons and six Sports Emmy award nominations later, Gruden sat at a conference table at the Raphael Hotel with about 30 MNF staffers to run down the plan for the upcoming broadcast, his last. At the end of the meeting, Rothman asked those who wanted to speak to talk about their time with Gruden. They paid tribute to the color commentator’s work ethic, devotion to family, and leadership of the broadcast. Then it was Gruden’s turn.
Ben Roethlisberger admires Tom Brady, so much so that a No. 12 jersey hangs in Roethlisberger’s home office.
Now Big Ben needs to do something he’s rarely done: beat Brady.
Sunday, the Patriots come to Pittsburgh with the AFC’s top seed on the line. And a win would mean even more when it comes to Roethlisberger’s standing as an all-time great QB. He has accomplished greatness in his 14 years: three Super Bowl appearances and two Lombardi trophies, an Offensive Rookie of the Year award, a passing yards title. But there are still a couple holes in his résumé. Roethlisberger has never been named league MVP, and he’s never topped Brady when it counts. All three of his AFC title runs did not go through the Pats (Ben is 0-2 against them in the playoffs), and Roethlisberger has only beaten a Brady-led team once since 2005.
All of that could change. Right now, Roethlisberger is playing as well as any quarterback in football. Last week, he threw for 506 yards while Brady, in his 250th career game, had his worst performance in terms of adjusted yards per attempt (3.79) since 2009. In fact, since his five-interception “Maybe I don’t have it anymore” debacle against the Jaguars, Roethlisberger has led the AFC in yards and touchdowns (only fellow 2004 draftee Philip Rivers has a better passer rating during that span). Big Ben will also have the advantage of a better supporting cast, with MVP caliber players at running back and receiver. Tom Brady, meanwhile, has a defense that ranks 30th in Football Outsiders’ efficiency metric.
A win Sunday could lift Roethlisberger into MVP favorite territory, allow the Steelers to host a potential AFC title game, and boost his chances of joining Brady as the fourth three-time Super Bowl winning QB. And if he can’t topple his New England nemesis now, when will he?

The two already were talking about the ensuing extra-point try, missing that the ball shifted upon James’ contact with the ground.
Jim Nantz and Tony Romo, who have seen and played, respectively, a lot of football in their lifetimes, did not even know what the officials in the Patriots-Steelers showdown were reviewing before the no-catch ruling that stunned and enraged everyone outside of New England. After Ben Roethlisberger found tight end Jesse James for a 10-yard touchdown in the final seconds of the most hyped matchup of the year, giving Pittsburgh the lead, officials went to the replay booth to check … something. Nantz and Romo, for the longest time, were confused about the buildup to the overturned, no-catch call that let the Patriots slip into control of the AFC.
“He’s down, but no one touches him,” Romo said, repeatedly watching replays of James corralling the pass, then diving toward the end zone ball-first. “So he’s gonna get in the end zone. This is gonna stand, unless he gets touched.” “No, he’s in,” Nantz said, seeing safety Duron Harmon didn’t make contact with James until the end zone. “He never got touched.”
“They are verifying it upstairs,” Nantz said. “And there’s no doubt it’s going to hold up.”
It slowly began to dawn on him. “I don’t know why this is taking so long to review because clearly Harmon’s nowhere close to him,” Nantz said. “Unless they’re looking at the football, did it wiggle or anything to the ground? Well, it looks like a touchdown to me. … Are they looking for the football possibly losing control here?”

Nashville, which ranks second in the NHL on the power play, was 0 for 2 with the man advantage.
“We’ve been in some games lately that have gone up and down with a ton of shots and a ton of chances,” Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. “Second period wasn’t bad with the exception of those four minutes, but inside of those four minutes, we made too many mistakes and it cost us the game.

Since being obtained along with Nik Stauskas for Trevor Booker, Okafor’s only action was a 22-minute outing when he scored 10 points in a blowout loss at Toronto on Dec. 15. Before joining the Nets, he only played in two games this season, which is among the reasons his minutes will be built up gradually.
“It was more than just being fit enough,” Okafor told reporters. “I think it was just being in a new environment and learning the system. So, I’m looking forward to playing on Wednesday.”

Smith once worked worked with Tom Coughlin and had some success with Atlanta before the Falcons needed a change
“Last year doesn’t matter at all,” said Canadian goalie Carter Hart, who stopped 32 shots through overtime Friday. “Tomorrow, we get the chance to finish in first place, so that’s what’s on our minds now.”
He represents an older (58), nice-guy alternative to the undermining mess McAdoo created. Plus, Smith would do plenty with that defense when it’s back at full strength.
It finally might be time for McDaniels to move on from New England for a second head-coaching job, well removed from his disappointing time in Denver. As the Giants turn the page at quarterback, he could have the Sean McVay effect on a young passer with a strong offensive skill supporting cast.
While going 14-34 under now-fired John Fox for the past three seasons, the team struggled to score points with consistent balance and explosiveness.
Now that the Bears have their franchise quarterback in Mitchell Trubisky, they need an offensive-minded leader to take him to the next level as they also continue to improve the personnel around him.
Shurmur, who worked with Sam Bradford early in his career and has turned Case Keenum into something special this season, would be a great get for Trubisky. He also has some previous NFL head-coaching experience in the QB wasteland known as Cleveland.
Shurmer is both organized and experienced at age 52. Trubisky’s athletic skill set would mesh well with his system. It also wouldn’t hurt to take him away from a division rival.
In 2016 he played through an AC joint sprain on his left shoulder, but this time around he is having surgery to repair damage from a dislocation that happened against the Colts on Dec. 14. Siemian left that game and did not play again this season after being placed on injured reserve.
Bobby Wagner does not want to see the NFL adopt a targeting rule along the lines of what has been implemented in college football.
“It’s terrible,” Wagner told ProFootballTalk Wednesday. “You can just see it now, you watch the college games and they kicking players out for clean hits because they can’t tell what is a clean hit from certain angles. I would rather that rule stay in the colleges then come up here and start messing up our game.”
“As soon as the offensive player lowers his shoulder or lowers his head or puts his head into it, I can come with my shoulder and he can lower his head and his head hit my shoulder, but they still say it’s my fault,” Wagner said. “It’s hard to be conscious of that. You can (be) conscious of it but I don’t think it’s all on the defense even though I feel like we are trying to do a better job of making sure we’re not using our head.”
The second investigation found there to be “insufficient evidence” to charge Bradshaw with sexual assault, according to The Daily Beast.
The exact dates of the alleged assault and when both West Point investigations took place are unclear.
Bradshaw was suspended from the football team for “an unspecified Academy matter” during the investigation, West Point told The Daily Beast. Bradshaw did not play during the 2014 season, and he missed two games — including a loss to Navy — at the end of the 2015 season.
Olsen sat out Week 12 to rest his sore foot but has been eager to get back in the mix. It looked as if a return to the home field would be a more opportune spot for Olsen to come back, given the grass surface. Now he will get a second chance to test his surgically repaired foot, and everyone seems confident about the upcoming game. Coach Ron Rivera indicated that there would not be a limited number of plays for Olsen, and Olsen echoed the desire to come back without limitation.
Winston completed 26 of 38 passes for 285 yards. His fumble led to Riddick’s second TD run. Tampa Bay finished with five turnovers, and Winston was sacked three times.
It took two replay reviews for officials to get it right on a play initially ruled an incomplete pass and 15-yard penalty against the Lions for a hit on a defenseless receiver in the first half.
Officials first looked at Winston’s first-quarter completion to Howard, who fumbled after being hit in the shoulder by safety Quandre Diggs at Detroit’s 18-yard line. The Bucs retained possession when the play was ruled an incompletion and that a 15-yard penalty should be assessed from the spot of the previous play.
The Lions then successfully challenged the ruling of an incomplete pass. Following another review, referee Ed Hochuli announced Howard indeed caught the ball and took four steps before being hit, and the Lions were awarded the ball on the fumble recovery. There was no foul for the hit, which was legal.
Coupled with Atlanta’s loss to the Vikings, the Saints (9-3) have a two-game cushion over both the Falcons (7-5) and Panthers (8-4) in the division. The Falcons and Saints do play each other twice in the final four weeks, so the division is not sealed yet.
1. Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara are NFL’s best 1-2 punch — With no offense to running back tandems in Atlanta, Minnesota or Philadelphia, the Saints have the best duo in the business. Ingram is approaching 1,000 yards on the year and ranks in the top 5 in the NFL. Kamara is looking like the favorite to be named the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year. Both made plays Sunday to beat the Panthers.
2. Drew Brees no longer has to do it all for Saints offense — Brees holds the NFL record for most consecutive games with at least one touchdown pass.
Boras said Monday that he has sent a 75-page binder exclusively to MLB owners on behalf of Arrieta, who hit the open market alongside Yu Darvish as the most coveted free-agent starter this winter.
Look at that cool head despite the bobbled snap! I am prepared to declare Mohammed Sanu better than at least five starting quarterbacks in the NFL.
Also, I called that a Wildcat formation, but the Wildcat really seems more a principle at this point: “We have replaced our quarterback with someone more athletic for one play. He can’t really read a defense, but we’re not necessarily counting on him to. Are you ready? ‘Cuz this is gonna be an adventure for us, too.”
D Jordan Oesterle made his first appearance since Nov. 12 and picked up an assist on Wingels’ goal. “I thought he had a great game,” coach Joel Quenneville said. … F Christian Fischer played in his native Chicago for the first time in the NHL. The 20-year-old Fischer made his debut with the Coyotes last January. … Blackhawks forward Ryan Hartman was a healthy scratch for the second straight game. Hartman was whistled for three penalties in a 6-2 loss at Washington last Wednesday, including a double minor for high-sticking in the second period. … Arizona scratched C Nick Cousins, D Kyle Capobianco and G Michael Leighton.
Hey, what about the ball coming loose after Jones hit the pylon? There have been repeated rulings that players haven’t been established as a runner despite taking several steps while making a catch, so if Jones lost the ball going to ground, shouldn’t that be a touchback? Or at least reviewed with closer scrutiny than it got?
Alex Smith update: He is 2 of 8 for seven yards. The Bills’ Steven Hauschka misses a 52-yarder, so the Chiefs will have good field position to try to get their first first down of the day as the clock approaches the 2-minute warning.
Matthew Tkachuk scored the tying goal with 8 1/2 minutes left to start the Flames’ comeback from a 2-1 deficit and added an empty-netter in the final minute. Troy Brouwer had a goal in the first period and Mike Smith finished with 22 saves.
“When it was 2-1 headed into the third, we realized we had a little bit of a hill to climb, but some big goals from key players there and a huge two points,” said Smith, who was playing in his 500th career game.
The Coyotes outshot Columbus 11-10 in the first period and came away empty on several odd-man rushes.
Miami probably isn’t moving on from Tannehill, but the franchise is no doubt taking extra care surveying his bad knee after 2016’s problems played a role in erasing his 2017. Denver could turn the reins over to Lynch in a sink-or-swim 2018. These are both options, but it’s safe to say each side will be paying close attention to the available passers who crop up next spring.
The Carolina Panthers quarterback appeared to be wearing a fez as he made his way to Bank of America Stadium ahead of Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Fans got a better look at the headwear after the Panthers moved to 9-4 on the season with a 31-24 win.
Newton explained that the look was inspired by rapper Andre 3000, who spoke about brimless hats in an interview with GQ Magazine.
“We’re going to need nights like that from Clint to be consistent and be a beast like he did, blocking shots, dunking the basketball,” Harden said. “And to close the game out he did a really, really good job. So progress, he’s got to get better, but tonight was a good step for him.”
Colorado defenseman Mark Barberio was a healthy scratch last week against Buffalo.
Barberio scored in the third period and Jonathan Bernier stopped 39 shots, helping the Avalanche to a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Even though he was without a goal this season, Panthers coach Bob Boughner viewed Matheson as a valuable commodity to have on the ice during the five-minute, three-on-three OT session.
” He’s great in three-on-three, because he has such great speed and he moves his feet so well,” Boughner said
Winston’s return to practice came after he received an MRI Monday that showed he was ready to throw again, and the quarterback took the majority of reps during Wednesday’s practice.
“He threw the football fine, his arm strength was fine,” Koetter said. “I don’t think any guy that plays a skill position like that where timing is involved is going to take three weeks off and be perfect on the first day, but we’ll see how the week goes.”
Winston originally injured his shoulder in Week 6 when he took a hit from Cardinals linebacker Chandler Jones, and he was forced to leave the game in the second quarter while Ryan Fitzpatrick filled in for him.
Perhaps the biggest injury in Sunday’s game was to tight end Kyle Rudolph, who hurt his right foot and had just three catches for 41 yards and an 18-yard touchdown. Without one of his favorite targets for part of the game, Keenum had a tough day. He was under constant duress and completed 27 of his 44 pass attempts for 280 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
