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.

What was already shaping up as a memorable week for running back Saquon Barkley moved to another level on Tuesday, when he and girlfriend Anna Congdon celebrated the birth of their first child.
Barkley posted a photo on Instagram Tuesday night of Jada Clare Barkley, saying he didn’t have the words to describe how he was feeling.
Game Womens Scott Tolzien Jersey
Words can’t even describe how I feel right now. You are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen in my life. Thank God for blessing me with you in my life and into my arms. I pray that I can be the best father to you and help you grow into an amazing woman.
We really can’t do anything about that. I think it’s his right as a player, Callaway said, according to the Post. The rules are such, kinda like when we have days off we Tanoh Kpassagnon Authentic Jersey can’t make them come in and work out.
Davis was fired from the Saintsations cheerleading squad after posting an Instagram photo showing her in an outfit similar to a one-piece swimsuit. She filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, saying that the Saints have different standards for women and men.
Game Jason Spezza Jersey
Ware, who worked for three seasons with the Dolphins, filed a complaint this month with the Florida Commission on Human Relations, saying she was subjected to a hostile work environment and discriminated against over gender and religion.
Somebody knew what they were doing, Allen said. It’s out there, it’s my fault. I can’t blame anyone else for my own mistakes.

More: Josh Allen’s tweets ‘ignorant behavior,’ says Buffalo Bills Hall of Famer Bruce Smith
Allen said he’s eager to meet his new teammates in Buffalo, including fellow first-round pick linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, and start earning their respect.
I am who I am today and I wasn’t that guy six years ago when I was 15 years old, Allen said. Obviously I’ve got to man up and take it on the chin, and what happened was not acceptable, and it’s never going to happen again.
The Raiders’ trade for wide receiver Martavis Bryant gives them a potentially nasty receiving group in Bryant, Amari Cooper and Jordy Nelson.
Cooper had a terrible year in 2017, and it’s unlikely he’ll be that terrible again this season. Nelson still has something left, and Bryant remains one of football’s most physically gifted players.
The Ravens’ 2018 schedule marks the start of John Harbaugh’s 11th season with Baltimore.
Harbaugh led Baltimore to the playoffs in each of his first five seasons, but the Ravens have failed to make the postseason in four of the last five. That includes a three-year drought. The Ravens will look to end that against a schedule that features the NFC South and AFC West. The home schedule is friendly, but the road map is especially brutal in 2018.
Kawhi Leonard’s uncertain future will be front and center, but San Antonio will enter the summer with the potential for half its roster becoming free agents.
“I said it before the series started — that the Spurs always make you do the right things,” Kerr said. “You will be exposed if you’re not attentive and boxing out and rotating and taking care of the ball.
“This year, our team struggled going into the playoffs and the Spurs helped us kind of get our game back in terms of forcing us to defend and pay attention to detail.”
The team had long been tied to a quarterback with the top pick as coaches and general managers around the league anticipated the move that turned out to be correct.
Mayfield, who won the 2017 Heisman Trophy, threw for 4,627 yards and 43 touchdowns for Oklahoma last season. He led the Sooners to their second straight College Football Playoff appearance and soared up draft boards last season with his improved play in the pocket.
Ward logged 37 tackles, two interceptions and 15 pass deflections for the Buckeyes last season to earn All-American honors. He carried that momentum to the combine, where the 5-11, 183-pound corner clocked a 4.32 40-yard dash time and 39-inch vertical jump to make him one of the top prospects at his position in this year’s draft class.
Cleveland’s quarterback woes go back years, most recently in early March when the team traded DeShone Kizer to the Packers after he started 15 games as a rookie last season. The Browns then sent backup Cody Kessler to the Jaguars three weeks later and later acquired Tyrod Taylor from the Bills for a third-round pick. The team has already tabbed Taylor to open the season under center.
The Browns, who haven’t made the playoffs since 2002, went winless in 2017.
This NBA season has been marked by several notable, critical injuries. Here’s a look at the most important ones to watch for each team in the postseason.
Timetable: VanVleet, who had been day-to-day with right shoulder soreness, was cleared to play in Game 2 but lasted less than three minutes. He missed Games 3-5, but has been cleared to return for Game 6.
Yet so much of Toronto’s maturation this season is a reflection of DeRozan’s individual growth and an affirmation of his leadership. He expanded his range and skill set when the schemes and principles of a revised offense demanded he do so. He embraced playmaking, an evolution that prompted him last week to state that he welcomed Washington’s trapping defenses because it empowered him to give up the ball and find teammates with alternate actions and better looks.
The fact that the Wizards have eased some of that pressure and attention should not be an invitation for the Raptors’ most prolific player to revert to old habits — but a challenge for him to maintain the new ones.
A game the top-seeded Raptors had led by 11 points at the half — and by eight with less than eight minutes remaining — had slipped. Toronto now finds itself tied 2-2, with Game 5 scheduled on Wednesday at the Air Canada Centre against a resurgent Wizards team that stated on Sunday night has identified the formula for knocking off the Raptors. [We] know what we can do to beat this team, Wizards guard John Wall said from the postgame podium. We know what we got to do to stop this team.
Game Youth Baltimore Ravens Jersey
Wall’s confidence is to be admired, and the Wizards deserve praise for a more deceptive defense that lured Toronto into a lousy combination of mismatch basketball, frenzied turnovers and missed opportunities on the offensive end. But whatever strategies Washington deployed effectively on Sunday night, the Raptors’ failures in Cody Eakin Youth jersey Game 4 were largely self-inflicted.
We passed up some shots, Lowry said. We didn’t move the ball as well. We just got stagnant.

The 2018 NFL Draft is days away and there are plenty of rumors floating around ahead of Thursday’s first round.
Friday it was reported Georgia running back Sony Michel could be the second ball carrier off the board. But according to The Ringer and NFL Network there are some concerns with the wear and tear on Michel’s body.
There’s a lot of teams telling me there’s a medical concern here, so he could slip a little bit, said The Ringer’s Mike Lombardi, formally an NFL executive. His medical grade is a little iffy.
Michel split time in a backfield with Nick Chubb at Georgia, amassing 3,613 yards and 33 touchdowns in four seasons. He hurt his knee in the SEC championship this past season but was able to play in the College Football Playoff. He’s suffered previous ankle injuries, a fractured forearm in 2016 and reconstructive knee surgery in high school, according to NFL Network.
Regular shortstop Xander Bogaerts, out since April 9 because of an injured left ankle, is expected to return from the disabled list Friday.
Kevin Zeitler Mens Jersey
I talked to him today and he was very upbeat, Cora said before the game. Looking forward to having him back at shortstop and the middle of the lineup.
Sale (2-1) allowed three runs and four hits in six innings to improve to 5-1 in eight games at Toronto, where his ERA rose from 0.96 to 1.36. He struck out 35 over 22 scoreless innings at Rogers Centre last year.
LHP Mike Minor (1-1, 3.86) starts for the Rangers.
One reason the Ravens weren’t able to work with a one-year deal was because they needed a multi-year contract to work with their cap space, according to NFL Media.
What they saw was just the latest beatdown from a franchise whose maligned rebuild has morphed into the one of the trendiest terms in sports.
The Sixers outscored the Heat by 14 in the third quarter to snap a tie game and had fans belting Trust the Process!
Goran Dragic was whistled for a technical Barclay Goodrow Youth jersey after slapping Simmons on the backside of his head, and that got the crowd howling early in the third. Simmons kept his cool — the rookie is rarely rattled — and made the Heat pay. JJ Redick sank the free throw off the technical, and Simmons kicked the ball out to Robert Covington on the possession for a 3 and a 54-48 lead. Redick followed with his third 3, and Philly was litty again.
Redick, who scored 27, sank the dagger late in the fourth that got the party started. Coach Brett Brown was showered with water and sports drinks in the locker room.
We’ve got more to do. We’ve got more to give, Brown said.
Jacoby Ellsbury’s latest ailment is plantar fasciitis, and it is preventing the New York Yankees outfielder from fully resuming baseball activities.
Limited Mens Rees Odhiambo Jersey The 34-year-old center fielder has been on the disabled list since the start of the season. He did not play in any exhibition games from March 1 until March 24 because of an oblique injury, and he finished spring training 1-for-14.
Boone said the team believes the oblique issue that started this string of injuries has passed. After being evaluated by a hip specialist in New York last week, the backup outfielder is back at the Yankees’ facility in Tampa, Florida, where he has been limited to some work off the batting tee and a little throwing.
Sending Pierre-Paul to Tampa Bay means the last remaining defensive link to the most recent Super Bowl triumph gets to continue his career in his home state. The Giants get back the Bucs’ third-round draft pick (69 overall) and the teams swapped fourth-round picks, the Giants obtaining the 108th overall pick, moving down six spots.
What this does is give the Giants four of the first 69 picks in the draft 鈥?Nos. 2, 34, 66 and 69 鈥?and certainly opens the door to take defensive end Bradley Chubb with the second-overall pick on April 26.
The Post reported the Giants will rate Chubb, along with Jason Kelce Jersey running back Saquon Barkley and guard Quenton Nelson, as the top three players in this draft 鈥?ahead of all the quarterback prospects. All three are in play for the Giants. There also might be scenarios where the Giants can trade down and still get one of their three top-rated prospects.
Hiram Bithorn has a reputation for being a homer-friendly venue, but the numbers don’t bear it out. In 47 major league games played there — 43 of them being Montreal Expos home games in 2003-04, three being Florida Marlins home games in 2010 and one being the 2001 regular-season opener between the Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays — the venue has seen .258/.322/.409 hitting rates (.151 ISO) with per-game averages of 8.9 runs scored and 2.3 home runs. By comparison — and the homer-happy offensive environment does influence these — last season, 27 of 30 major league stadiums saw greater isolated power, 21 saw a greater home run average and 20 saw a greater runs-per-game average.
Game Briean Boddy-Calhoun Jersey Joey Lucchesi (L), rostered in 18 percent of ESPN leagues, San Diego Padres vs. San Francisco Giants: Lucchesi has been impressive, striking out 16 with just four walks to open his career. The 25-year-old southpaw is set up well to keep the early momentum while facing an improved but still scuffling Giants lineup with pitcher-friendly Petco Park at his back.
Starting the second game of a rare doubleheader at Rogers Centre in place of Russell Martin, the Blue Jays’ backup catcher singled down the right-field line with the bases loaded in the 10th inning, giving Toronto a 5-4 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday night.
The Blue Jays won the opener 11-3 and have now swept all three doubleheaders at their retractable-roof stadium, which opened in 1989.
After Justin Grimm walked the bases loaded to open the seventh, Maile drove a pitch from Brad Keller down the right-field line to score two runs. Pinch-hitter Devon Travis tied the game at 3 with an infield single, a grounder that third baseman Mike Moustakas couldn’t get out of his glove in time.
Steve Pearce singled up the middle to score Maile and put the Blue Jays ahead.
Duffy was in no mood to cast blame on his teammates.
We’ve got the utmost confidence in the guy coming out of the ‘pen, and nine times out of 10 Grimm’s going to get that done, the left-hander said.
The Royals tied it on Alcides Escobar’s homer in the eighth, his first this season.
Toronto was reeling in the wake of 5-1 and 7-3 losses on the road, but got back to using its speed at home.
I don’t think any of us felt we played how we’re capable, Matthews said. Tonight definitely was a statement game.
Matthews was fiery after Saturday’s blowout, responding to a question about how Boston’s top line of David Pastrnak, Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron could have 20 points in two games compared to his trio’s goose egg with an expletive: (It) happens.
The raw emotion that comes with being a young star came out a different way in this one after he took a feed from William Nylander down low at 5:13 of the second and fired a shot short-side on Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask to send the Air Canada Centre crowd into a frenzy.
It just feels like an earthquake in your feet when you score, especially in playoffs, Matthews said. It’s definitely emotional.
Toronto coach Mike Babcock said he hopes the goal takes a weight off the 20-year-old’s shoulders.
D.J. Swearinger Authentic Jersey After today, the top prospects for the 2018 NFL Draft can unpack their suitcases for a moment.
Today’s the final day players can travel to teams for pre-draft visits, and for some it’s the end of the long a grueling few weeks of travel.
To round up some of the highlights today, quarterback Sam Darnold is with the Jets and Josh Allen is visiting the Giants. The Cardinals are getting the last look at Baker Mayfield.
For some of them, particularly the top quarterbacks, it’s an arduous process of bouncing from city to city, meeting a blur of coaches and team officials and eating many expensive dinners.
I hate this feeling but maybe it’s a good reminder for everybody for next game to lock in, Simmons said.
Heat: Goran Dragic scored 20 points and James Johnson had 18.
76ers: Philly native and Hollywood star Kevin Hart rang the ceremonial Liberty Bell and sat courtside a few seats down from Allen Iverson.
Wade said he was motivated by Hart’s trash talk. To be able to hush a crowd, that’s a great feeling, Wade said.
James Buckley, Edward L. Du Bois, III, Don Fuhrman, Johnny Smith, and Richard Welsh are all in their 70s with Rodney Davis, Mario Di Fonzo, Walter Martin and Mark Ninehouser are in their 60s. They were told the league was moving in a different direction despite each of them having served at least 11 years in their roles. All of their replacements were between 10 and 25 years younger.
On her arrival at the NFL, Lanier let it be known that she was the new sheriff in town, the complaint Jaccob Slavin Authentic Jersey states, according to Rick Maese of the Washington Post. Almost immediately, rumors swirled that Lanier was planning to fire [security representatives], creating an atmosphere of fear and foreboding. But that was precisely her intention. Ruling by fear and intimidation is Lanier’s ‘management’ style.
Paul Richardson Authentic Jersey The NFL told the newspaper that the allegations were bunk.
Colby Rasmus Jersey
The Cowboys opened their offseason program on Monday with defensive end David Irving in attendance.
Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Irving arrived for work despite the fact that he has not signed his restricted free agent tender. Irving was tendered at the second-round level last month and it appears he will not be unsigned for long.
Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports that Irving is expected to sign the tender on Monday. That will set him up to make just over $2.9 million this year and become an unrestricted free agent next year.
The Saints organization strives to treat all employees fairly, including Ms. Davis, Leslie A. Lanusse, a lawyer who is representing the team, said in an email. At the appropriate time and in Harold Carmichael Womens Jersey the appropriate forum, the Saints will defend the organization’s policies and workplace rules. For now, it is sufficient to say that Ms. Davis was not subjected to discrimination because of her gender.
In the span of 6 minutes, 26 seconds in the second quarter, the Spurs failed to score a single field goal, yet they led 53-47 at the half. But a 17-5 Warriors run to start the third quarter jump-started the home crowd, and San Antonio didn’t possess the firepower to keep pace in the second half.
It didn’t help that the Warriors also outscored the Spurs 21-3 in transition in the second half after scoring just seven points in the first half in transition.
Well, actually I feel better about this loss than the previous one, Spurs veteran Manu Ginobili said. I think we competed way harder. We executed much better. There’s always something. Today, we had an off night shooting. We did a lot of great things, but bottom line, we shot 4-for-28 [from 3-point range]. It’s hard.
Ginobili said the Spurs need to make the physical edge and aggressiveness they played with in Game 2 their baseline to even have a minor chance at rebounding from their two-game deficit.
Aldon Smith Jersey
Miami ran its record to 7-0 in Game 2 contests after being down 1-0 in a series under Spoelstra by beating the 76ers 113-103 on Monday to even the series at 1-1, shifting home-court advantage to the No. 6-seeded Heat.
Wade’s numbers completely belied his age. In 26 minutes off the bench, Wade totaled 28 points on 11-of-16 shooting, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals. He also posted a game-best plus-16 rating.
Elite Kids Justin Coleman Jersey
I don’t care what his numbers were anywhere else or all year long or at different times. He’s (made) for these moments, said Spoelstra, whose team won a road game in their 19th straight series, dating to 2011.
Philadelphia was riding a 27-point blowout win in Game 1 and a 17-game winning streak, including 11 straight at home.
However, Wade proved to be too much for the Sixers to overcome. And coach Brett Brown knows his team, which has played both games without injured All-Star center Joel Embiid, must prepare for the energy and production Wade provides off the Heat bench.
Under new CEO Derek Jeter, the Marlins traded away NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton, Marcell Ozuna, Christian Yelich and Dee Gordon during an offseason payroll purge. That left Realmuto Terry Steinbach Jersey as one of the few proven players left in Miami, and there were rumblings that he wanted out, too.
Elite Kids Ryon Healy Jersey
That stuff was all over once spring training started, regardless of how the offseason would have went, Realmuto said before the game at Yankee Stadium. In this situation, when something happens, you want to get back on the field and help the guys…. I haven’t been paying any attention to that. I’m here to play baseball.
Realmuto was behind the plate Tuesday night for the last-place Marlins. He batted fifth against Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka and drove in a run with a grounder his first time up, reaching safely on an error.
I’ve just got to step in and do my part and try to help the team win the best that I can, he said before the game. Obviously, we’ve been struggling lately. But that’s just how the game goes. It’s an up-and-down roller coaster. I kind of hope to step in, be a little spark plug and kind of get the guys going a little bit.
The Dallas Cowboys finally decided to pull the trigger on parting ways with star wide receiver Dez Bryant last Friday after eight seasons with the team. This left a significant void in the passing game that the front office will look to fill prior to the 2018 campaign.
Gronkowski’s base salary for 2018 is $8 million. That places him among the top-paid tight ends in the NFL, but it is $2 million less than the average Jimmy Graham is getting with the three-year, $30 million deal he signed with the Green Bay Packers. Plus, Gronk makes a bigger impact in the passing game than most of the league’s top receivers, and you have guys like TY Hilton and Doug Baldwin making $13 million and $11.5 million per year, respectively. Last year, Gronk restructured his contract so that he had more than $5 million in incentives built in for 2017.
With Anderson’s departure, 2016 second-round pick Devontae Booker becomes the likely candidate to be the team’s starting running back while also opening the door for 2017 sixth-round pick De’Angelo Henderson to see increased playing time. Henderson’s rookie season was derailed by a July wrist injury that required surgery.
A suspect wide receiver class provides the Philadelphia Eagles with their choice of prospects after the organization displayed plenty of interest in the position throughout the predraft process.
In 1996, Danny Wuerffel was putting the finishing touches on his University of Florida legacy 10 years prior to Tebow’s start of a quarterbacking journey that would take an almost identical path.
The similarities continued once Wuerffel and Tebow embarked upon pro football careers. Neither was able to enjoy the same sustained success from their college days, whether because of subpar arm strength (Wuerffel) or a combination of accuracy issues and difficulties reading pro defenses (Tebow).
Yet as their NFL days faded, the commitment Wuerffel and Tebow made toward their Christian-inspired projects intensified. Both also found alternative outlets for the athletic fire that continued to burn within.
