Madame Fleur Pellerin

Madame Fleur Pellerin est-elle le nouveau bouc émissaire en pleine mode du French Bashing ? A l'étranger, les médias se déchaînent sur la ministre de la culture après sa gaffe sur Patrick Modiano.

Il n'y a pas qu'en France que Fleur Pellerin est le sujet des railleries des médias et des intellectuels. Depuis qu'elle a concédé dans le Supplément de Canal + qu'elle ne lisait pas depuis 2 ans (date de son entrée au gouvernement Ayrault) et qu'elle ne connaissait pas l'œuvre de Modiano, prix Nobel de Littérature, Fleur Pellerin recueille de nombreuses critiques en France mais aussi à l'étranger.

The Times, The Guardian, le Daily Mail, la BBC et The NY Times n'ont pas manqué de relayer la polémique et ont saisi l'occasion pour se moquer de la France. Il faut dire que le French Bashing est la mode en Europe depuis les révélations du livre de Valérie Trierweiler et les remontrances de Bruxelles quant à la politique économique de la France.

Bouc émissaire du French Bashing, Fleur Pellerin n'est pas ménagée dans la presse anglo-saxonne. Ainsi le NY Times a rappelé que quelques jours avant ces déclarations, la ministre de la culture avait déjeuné avec le prix Nobel de Littérature et n'avait pas tari d'éloges sur son œuvre.

The Guardian, très moqueur sur l'affaire, a publié un papier Modiano qui ? également au ton acerbe et ironique vis-à-vis de la ministre. Dans ce texte, le site du quotidien parle de "honte" pour la France et de rappeler que Frédéric Lefevre avait également commis une gaffe en parlant de Zadig et Voltaire. A sa sortie du conseil des ministres du jour, la remplaçante d'Aurélie Filippetti n'a pas commenté l'affaire...

The 10 greatest changes by Ian Mortimer theguardian.com


In Europe, the last millennium has been shaped by successive waves of change, but which shifts, in which centuries, have really shaped the modern world? Historian Ian Mortimer identifies the 10 leading drivers of change.


Château de Loches

11th century: Castles

Most people think of castles as representative of conflict. However, they should be seen as bastions of peace as much as war. In 1000 there were very few castles in Europe – and none in England. This absence of local defences meant that lands were relatively easy to conquer – William the Conqueror’s invasion of England was greatly assisted by the lack of castles here. Over the 11th century, all across Europe, lords built defensive structures to defend them and their land. It thus became much harder for kings to simply conquer their neighbours. In this way, lords tightened their grip on their estates, and their masters started to think of themselves as kings of territories, not of tribes. Political leaders were thus bound to defend their borders – and govern everyone within those borders, not just their own people. That’s a pretty enormous change by anyone’s standards. 

12th century: Law and order

If you consider visiting a foreign country, one of the most important aspects you bear in mind is how safe you will be while you are there. Indeed, probably no other factor deters people from visiting a place as much as an absence of law and order. So it follows that the introduction of the systematic application of law and order marks quite a turning point in European history. This happened through the compilation of law books, the development of jurisprudence, and, in England, the development of “justices in eyre” – the forerunners of circuit judges – together with the establishment of trial by jury.

13th century: Markets

A 13th-century gold coin

As is well known, money has existed for thousands of years. However, that doesn’t mean it has always served the same function as it does today. At the start of the 13th century not many people used money in England. The vast majority lived in the country and bartered for the things that they could not make for themselves. Lords commanded the time of their peasants and allowed them to farm a few acres in return. The only people who regularly handled silver pennies were the inhabitants of market towns – and there were only 300 of those (and some had fewer than 500 people). However, over the course of the 13th century another 1,400 markets were founded in England. European countries saw a similar quadrupling of the number of towns. Not all of these new foundations succeeded but many did. The whole of Christendom shifted to a more mercantile economy as you simply cannot operate a barter system efficiently in a marketplace. By 1300, several countries had begun minting large-denomination coins in gold, and credit was available from Italian banking companies, which had branches across the continent. 

14th century: Plague

A contemporary illustration of Death strangling a victim of the plague
The greatest disaster to befall mankind ... a contemporary illustration of death strangling a victim of the plague. Photograph: Heritage Image/Alamy
The greatest disaster to befall mankind and the most important event in the history of the western world had absolutely nothing to do with technology. With roughly half the population of the country dying in the space of seven months, the mortality impact was about 200 times as great as that of the first world war. The socio-economic consequences were profound. The old feudal system was dealt a heavy blow as the paucity of survivors meant workers could charge more for their labour, and peasants could acquire assets and even set themselves up as manorial lords. Questions were raised about God’s relationship with mankind and the nature of disease – how could a benevolent deity kill so many innocent children? At the same time, people began to regard death in a new light, and the religious started to abase themselves, adopting a stance of abject humility in the eyes of God. Thus the plague not only killed people, it changed the ways people lived, as well as their expectations of death.

15th century: Columbus

Detail from Emile Lassalle's 1839 portrait of Christopher Columbus
Expanding horizons ... detail from Emile Lassalle’s 1839 portrait of Christopher Columbus. Photograph: Famoso/Alamy
The most important relationship in human history is between mankind and the land. Basically, the more land you have, the more natural resources you have. Columbus thus stands as one of the most important figures in history. With a great fanfare of his own achievement, he showed Europeans the way to vast territories of which no one had previously dreamed. No new technology empowered him: the compass was already at least three centuries old by the time he discovered Hispaniola in 1492. It was rather socio-economic pressure that drove him – together with his own desire to become a wealthy landowner. The consequences go far further than Spanish being the second-most widely spoken language in the world today (after Chinese). Until 1492 most people had believed the ancient Roman and Greek writers had reached an epitome of knowledge. However, there is no reference to the American continents in Ptolemy or Strabo. People quickly realised that, if the ancient writers could have missed two whole continents, they might have misunderstood many other things too. The crossing of the Atlantic was thus one of the two or three biggest causes for the re-evaluation of received wisdom in the last thousand years.

16th century: The decline of personal violence

A 16th-century illustration of a homeowner thwarting a burglary
Greater certainty of finding the guilty party ... 16th-century illustration of a homeowner thwarting a burglary. Photograph: Leemage/Getty
The pre-industrial past was, by our standards, incredibly violent. In the middle ages, the murder rate in Oxford occasionally hit the same level as Dodge City at the height of the American gun-slinging wild west. But from 1500, the murder rates decreased rapidly, and not just in Oxford. In fact, across Europe, they more or less halved every 100 years, until they started to increase again in the late 20th century. The cause was better communication, through a massive increase in literacy and writing, allowing governments to act more regularly and with greater certainty of finding the guilty party. People started to think twice before drawing a knife in a brawl. Constables answering to the authorities pursued highwaymen and similar culprits far more rigorously than in previous centuries. As with many changes over past centuries, the development was so gradual that contemporaries did not comment on them; they also quickly took a safer society for granted. But that very thing – a safer society – is something not to be thrown away lightly.

17th century: The scientific revolution

One thing that few people fully appreciate about the witchcraft craze that swept Europe in the late 16th and early 17th centuries is that it was not just a superstition. If someone you did not like died, and you were accused of their murder by witchcraft, it would have been of no use claiming that witchcraft does not exist, or that you did not believe in it. Witchcraft was recognised as existing in law – and to a greater or lesser extent, so were many superstitions. The 17th century saw many of these replaced by scientific theories. The old idea that the sun revolved around the Earth was finally disproved by Galileo. People facing life-threatening illnesses, who in 1600 had simply prayed to God for health, now chose to see a doctor. But the most important thing is that there was a widespread confidence in science. Only a handful of people could possibly have understood books such as Isaac Newton’s Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica, when it was published in 1687. But by 1700 people had a confidence that the foremost scientists did understand the world, even if they themselves did not, and that it was unnecessary to resort to superstitions to explain seemingly mysterious things.

18th century: The French Revolution

The Tennis Court Oath in Versailles by Jacques-Louis David

There is no doubt that the French Revolution of 1789 was THE revolution for the western world. It was the first testing of the idea, nationally, that men should be equal in the eyes of the law. It forced thinkers all across Europe to reassess the ideas of human rights, political equality, and the rights of women. Although many governments were initially cautious of encouraging change, without the French Revolution, it is difficult to see how the great social reforms of the 19th century – the abolition of slavery, universal education, the rights of women to act as independent property owners, public health, and the diminution of capital punishment – would have proceeded as they did.

19th century: Communications

We think of the 20th century as undergoing a communications revolution. And for many people it has done: most of our great-grandfathers did not have a private phone in 1900 but about 40% of us had a mobile phone by 2000. But the real communications revolution lay in the 19th century – in 1900 you could send a telegram. In 1805, news of the Battle of Trafalgar (21 October) was delivered to the admiralty on 6 November. Just riding from Falmouth to London took Lieutenant Lapenotière 37 hours and 21 changes of horse. After the intercontinental telegraph cable was laid in 1872 it became possible to send a message to Australia immediately. The railways, telegraph and telephone made messaging much faster – in some cases almost instantaneous. This was just as significant as the modern communications revolution, if not more so. Governments trying to control their own countries and those overseas could now require that all important decisions be referred back to the capital; previously they had had to place trusted men in positions of responsibility all over the world – and hope for the best.

20th century: Invention of the future

Detail from Long Live the First Cosmonaut YA Gagarin! by Valentin Petrovich Viktorov
To infinity and beyond ... detail from Long Live the First Cosmonaut YA Gagarin! by Valentin Petrovich Viktorov (1961). Photograph: Heritage Images/Getty
There can be no doubt that technology hugely changed the ways in which we lived and died in the 20th century. However, it also masks changes that are arguably even more profound. In 1900 few people seriously considered the future. William Morris and a few socialists wrote utopian visions of the world they wanted to see, but there was little serious consideration of where we were going as a society. Today we predict almost everything: what the weather will be, what housing we will need, what our pensions will be worth, where we will dispose of our rubbish for the next 30 years and so on. The UN predicts world population levels up to the year 2300. Global warming reports are hot news. Novels about the future are 10 a penny. Newspapers and online newsfeeds are increasingly full of stories of what will happen, not what has happened. With limited resources on a limited planet, this is not a shift that is likely ever to change. In a thousand years or so, if society continues that long, the 20th century may well be viewed as the threshold when the modern world began – when humanity started to consider the future as well as the present and the past.

ELP --Lucky Man (Not suitable for kids)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFsCuj_dVsY&gl=HU

Comments:Not suitable for kids

"Lucky Man" is a song by the English progressive rock supergroup Emerson, Lake & Palmer, from the group's 1970 self-titled debut album. Written by Greg Lake when he was 12 years old and recorded by the trio using improvised arrangements, the song contains one of rock music's earliest instances of a Moog synthesizer solo.
"Lucky Man" was released as a single in 1970 and reached the top 20 in the Netherlands. The song also charted in the United States and Canada. The single was re-released in 1973 and charted again in the U.S. and Canada.
On the last day of recording their debut album, Emerson, Lake & Palmer discovered they were short of satisfying the label's contract requirement of 21 minutes of music per album side, and therefore needed one more song. Greg Lake began playing "Lucky Man", a song he had written when he was 12 years old. Unlike many songs on the album, which use a distorted fuzz bass to sound like a guitar, "Lucky Man" is an acoustic ballad. The lyrics tell the ironic story of a man who had everything, went to war, and died. A Moog synthesizer solo, recorded in one take, is performed by Keith Emerson at the end of song, making it one of the first rock compositions in which a Moog was a featured solo instrument. The solo begins as an ominous drone on a low D before leaping up two octaves and using the glide control throughout.

ELP --Lucky Man (Not suitable for kids)

He had white Horses
And ladies by the score
All dressed in satin
And waiting by the door

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

White lace and feathers
They made up his bed
A gold covered mattress
On which he was led

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

He went to fight wars
For his country and his king
Of his honor and his glory
The people would sing

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

A bullet had found him
His blood ran as he cried
No money could save him
So he laid down and he died

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

Mr. Arnaud Montebourg et Ms. Aurélie Filippetti



C'est l'un des scoops les plus étonnants de cette rentrée très "peopolitique". Début septembre, Paris Match révélait en une qu'Arnaud Montebourg et Aurélie Filippetti ne partageait pas que les mêmes idées politiques mais aussi... leurs vacances et donc leur vie. Fausse rumeur ? Vraie idylle ? Depuis hier, la seconde hypothèse a encore gagné en crédibilité. D'après Le Républicain Lorrain, les ex-ministres frondeurs auraient en effet "officialisé" leur histoire d'amour en s'affichant en public lors de l'ouverture du 37e Festival du film italien de Villerupt (Meurthe-et-Moselle)...

Arnaud Montebourg et Aurélie Filipetti ne se cacheraient donc (presque) plus. Hier, lundi 27 octobre, c'est ensemble - mais pas main dans la main - que les deux anciens ministres socialistes sont arrivés, vers 19h45, à l'hôtel de ville villeruptien, fief de l'événement cher à l'ancienne ministre de la Culture, née à Villerupt. Connu pour ne pas avoir la langue dans sa poche, l'ex-ministre du Redressement productif en a profité pour lâcher quelques sous-entendus loin d'être innocents. "Depuis le temps qu'Aurélie me parle de son Pays-Haut, il fallait que je vienne le voir", aurait-il par exemple confié avec un grand sourire, selon nos confrères.

Décidément sur la même longueur d'onde, c'est Aurélie Filipetti qui donne ensuite quelques indices, une fois entrée dans la salle des fêtes et après avoir commandé elle-même "une pizza frite mortadella et une Parme". "Je préfère monter les marches de Villerupt que celles de Cannes, car je suis bien mieux accompagnée", laurait lâché l'ancienne ministre de la Culture avec "un regard complice" à Arnaud Montebourg, explique le journal. Difficile de faire plus clair pour celle qui fait ici référence à un incident qui l'aurait opposée à Fleur Pellerin durant le Festival du film en mai dernier. Son successeur au ministère appréciera en tout cas le petit tacle. Une chose est sûre, on n'a pas fini de parler des histoires d'amour au PS...

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin by Alyssa Toomey and Claudia Rosenbaum (Not suitable for kids)

It's over for Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin.

The 24-year-old Oscar winner and the 37-year-old Coldplay rocker have split, E! News confirms.

Lawrence began seeing Martin in late June, shortly after her split with X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult. The musician, meanwhile, announced his separation from ex Gwyneth Paltrow after more than ten years of marriage in March.

The Hunger Games stunner most recently supported the recording artist when he performed with Kings of Leon at the Hollywood Bowl earlier this month. She was also on hand when the father of two took the stage in September at the iHeart Radio Music Festival.

Throughout the course of their relationship, Lawrence and Martin stayed mum on their romance, and they were only photographed together once during their nearly four-month relationship.

In the November issue of Vanity Fair, the Silver Linings star, who looked stunning on the cover, described her dream man to the mag.

"Basically, what I'm saying is all I need in a relationship is somebody to watch TV with me," the short-haired stunner, who is a devoted fan of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, said, adding that she wants a man who ''has the same taste in reality TV."

In addition to sharing her love for television, the talented thesp said she wants to date a guy who "isn't afraid to____in front of me."

Instead of "a big, passionate love," she added, "I'd rather have just a peaceful time. [Those] are deeper because you can be your true self with somebody, and somebody can be their true self with you."

As for her biggest turn-off?

"I don't like fighting, and I find argumentative people the most annoying people on the planet," she revealed. "Like, why do you still want to be fighting? It's just unattractive."



All the best guys. God bless.

Pre-show training regime by Emma Akbareian

It's just over a month until the annual Victoria's Secret fashion show comes to London.

On December 2nd the world's most beautiful women will congregate at London's Earl's Court to show off the latest designs from the American brand in quite spectacular fashion.

The prospect of daring to bare all in skimpy underwear is frightening enough, add to that a mammoth catwalk show and global audience and it's understandable that the show's stars are scrambling to get in shape.

Behati Prinsloo who is married to Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, told US Weekly:

"I'm always prepping. It's in London this year, and it's very exciting."

"I've been travelling, so I just try to stay active in any way possible - walking, or running around. I've just been going to the gym and doing my own thing at the moment, but once I have a minute, I'll really get into it."

Other Angels including Adriana Lima, Alessandro Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr and Karlie Kloss have all taken to social media posting images of themselves in various stages of work-out.

Mr. Raphael Ravenscroft We Salute You

by PAUL ANDREWS


THE musician who played the most famous saxophone solo of all time on the classic hit Baker Street has died.

Raphael Ravenscroft recorded the renowned eight- bar sax riff on the 1978 Gerry Rafferty song.

Mr Ravenscroft, originally from Dumfries but who later moved to Exeter, Devon, also worked with Pink Floyd, Abba, Marvin Gaye and later Daft Punk and Duffy during his music career.

Friend Julie Bookham said yesterday that he died at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, aged 60.

She said: “Raphael suffered a stroke some time ago. We believe he had a heart attack. He was taken to hospital but died early [on] Sunday morning.”

Mr Ravenscroft’s other performing credits include work with Maxine Nightingale, Kim Carnes, Mike Oldfield, Chris Rea, Robert Plant, Brand X, Hazel O’Connor and Bonnie Tyler.

In 1979, he released the solo album Her Father Didn’t Like Me Anyway. He later played on albums and sessions with Duffy, Mary Hopkin and Daft Punk.

He was also the author of several books on the instrument’s technique, including the instruction manual The Complete Saxophone Player.

In the summer of 2012, he took a break due to ill-health and moved back to Devon.

He has married and divorced twice and separated from his third wife in 2009.

His daughter, from his second marriage, is the artist Scarlett Raven.

Mr. Frank Sinatra and Mr. Bing Crosby--We Salute You Guys, RIP

Mr. Frank Sinatra and Mr. Bing Crosby-- "Deck The Halls"

Deck the halls with boughs of holly,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Tis the season to be jolly,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Don we now our gay apparel,
Fa la la, la la la, la la la.
Troll the ancient Yule tide carol,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

See the blazing Yule before us,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Strike the harp and join the chorus.
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Follow me in merry measure,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
While I tell of Yule tide treasure,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Fast away the old year passes,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Hail the new, ye lads and lasses,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.


Sing we joyous, all together,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Heedless of the wind and weather,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Vakifbank Istanbul - Fenerbahce Grundig Istanbul 3-0

Vakifbank-Fenerbahce 3-0 di Giacomo Tarsi posted Oct. 21, 2014




Vakifbank Istanbul - Fenerbahce Grundig Istanbul 3-0 (25-20, 25-18, 25-23)
Vakifbank: Aydemir 4, Sonsirma 17, Toksoy-Guidetti 7, Sheilla 16, Vasileva 6, Rasic 8, Karadayi (L); Akin 0, Kestirengoz 0, Onal 0. Non entrate: Akman, Hatice (L). All: Guidetti.
Fenerbahce: Lo Bianco 1, Richards-Hildebrand 3, Babat 2, Uslupehlivan 10, Kim Yeon-Koung 11, Erdem 11, Dalbeler (L); Denkel 1, Oner 0, Ismailoglu 0, Dilik 0. Non entrata: Yilmaz. All: Abbondanza.



ANKARA- Il Vakifbank Istanbul di Guidetti si aggiudica la sua seconda Supercoppa bissando il 3-2 dell'anno scorso all'Eczacibasi con un 3-0 al Fenerbahce che paga l'assenza di Montano e non concretizza nemmeno un vantaggio di 16-23 nel terzo set.

PIU' E MENO - Gozde Sonsirma (MVP con 17 punti, il 52% in att. ed il 77% in ric.) e Sheilla trascinano il Vakifbank mentre i neoacquisti Rasic e Vasileva faticano in attacco. Nel Fenerbahce prestazione totalmente deficitaria di Richards (misero 13% in att. con 3 punti, 3 murate e 2 errori su 23 attacchi), ma fa fatica anche la stella Kim Yeon-Koung con 11 punti ed il 31% in att. La migliore delle sconfitte è dunque Erdem con 11 punti, il 70% in att. e 4 muri.

FORMAZIONI - Nel Vakifbank Guidetti manda in tribuna Costagrande e De Kruijf e schiera Aydemir-Sheilla; Sonsirma-Vasileva; Rasic-Toksoy; Kardayi. Subito in campo dunque anche la brasiliana Sheilla arrivata ad Istanbul solo domenica sera, mentre è in panchina la giovane Akman. Nel Fenerbahce Montano è indisponibile per un affaticamento in fase di preparazione e va in tribuna assieme a Bauer (scelta a posteriori non azzeccata vista la prestazione di Richards che poteva essere tranquillamente rimpiazzata da Ismailoglu). L'altra indisponibile è ovviamente Lucia Bosetti il cui recupero procede comunque positivamente. Il sestetto è dunque Lo Bianco-Uslupehlivan, Kim-Richards, Erdem-Babat, Dalbeler.

LA PARTITA -
1° set: Dopo un break point per parte (3-1 e 5-5) il Vakifbank torna sul +2 con uno scambio lungo chiuso da Sheilla: 8-6. Al rientro in campo il Vakifbank allunga con Vasileva (9-6) e Gozde (10-6) che approfitta di un'indecisione tra Lo Bianco e Babat. Dopo il time out di Abbondanza si sblocca Kim con 2 punti consecutivi (10-8), ma un altro liscio tra Lo Bianco e Babat costa il 12-8. Kim accorcia le distanze (12-10), ma Sonsirma le ristabilisce: 15-11. Sul turno di battuta di Uslupehlivan il Fenerbahce torna sotto con il fallo di Aydemir (15-13) ed il contrattacco di Kim: 15-14. Il pari arriva per un errore di Sonsirma (16-16), ma il doppio cambio proposto da Abbondanza (dentro Dilik ed Ismailoglu) si rivela infelice per 2 alzate di Dilik che propiziano il 18-16 Vakifbank. Tornano Lo Bianco ed Uslupehlivan, ma la rotazione con Aydemir al servizio resta ostica ed il Vakifbank scappa via con Sonsirma (19-16), Sheilla (20-16), out dal 6 di Kim (21-16) e muro su Richards: 22-16. E' il break decisivo ed anche se il Fenerbahce annulla 3 set-point Vasileva realizza il 25-20. 7 punti a testa per Sonsirma e Kim, ma il Fenerbahce paga lo 0% in att. di Richards su 8 palloni (1 murata). La neocampionessa del mondo non eccelle nemmeno in ricezione col 36% di ric. positiva su 14 palloni.

2° set: Dopo un avvio equilibrato (7-7) il Vakifbank allunga ancora sul turno di servizio di Aydemir: muro su Uslupehlivan (9-7) e contrattacchi di Sheilla (10-7) e Sonsirma (11-7). Il massimo vantaggio arriva su un errore di Kim (13-8), poi Erdem (13-10) ed una difesa direttamente a punto su Rasic (14-11) risvegliano il Fenerbahce (in campo Oner per Lo Bianco nel giro in prima linea) che accorcia con altri 2 punti di Erdem: muro e contrattacco per il 14-13. La rimonta si spegne col muro di Aydemir su Kim (16-14), il contrattacco di Gozde (17-14) ed il muro di Rasic su Uslupehlivan: 18-14. Entra finalmente Ismailoglu per la decisamente negativa Richards, ma non fa meglio prendendo subito una murata (19-14) e l'emorragia di punti prosegue fino al 21-14. Chiude Sheilla sul 25-18. Sheilla è la top scorer del set con 7 punti, mentre nel Fenerbahce resta nulla Richards (1 su 6 in att. con 2 errori) e crolla anche il rendimento di Kim che marcatissima fa 0/9 in attacco.

3° set: Torna in campo Ricahrds, ma resta Denkel entrata nel finale di secondo set al posto di Babat. Il Fenerbahce prova a reagire con 2 ace di Uslupehlivan (3-5) ed un muro di Erdem su Sonsirma (4-7) che però si rifà subito con 2 punti consecutivi: 6-7. Il pari arriva sull'ennesimo errore di Richards (8-8) che prende anche la murata del 9-9. Il Vakifbank sorpassa e allunga con l'ace di Toksoy su Dalbeler (11-10) ed un errore di Kim (12-10). Il team di Guidetti accusa però un calo e gli errori in ricezione di Vasileva (12-12) ed in attacco di Sheilla (12-13) rianimano il Fenerbahce che va +2 col muro di Kim su Vasileva che lascia il campo ad Onal. Le 2 squadre accusano la stanchezza, si vedono azioni confuse ed aumentano gli errori, ma è il Vakifbank a sbagliare di più: due consecutivi di Sonsrima per il 15-17, poi Sheilla (16-21) ed ancora Sonsirma (16-22). Nel mezzo ci sono anche un paio di discusse decisioni arbitrali che fruttano un giallo a Guidetti. Entrano Akin e Kestirengoz, ma Uslupehlivan va a segno per il 16-23. Il set sembra finito ed invece dopo l'errore in battuta di Erdem il Fenerbahce non fa più un punto: muro su Uslupehlivan (18-23), scambio prolungato (19-23), contrattacco della rientrante Sheilla (20-23). Tornano Lo Bianco e Babat, ma é Gozde ad andare a segno (21-23) poi Kim riceve lungo (22-23 di Gozde) e si fa murare: 23-23. La rimonta si completa col contrattacco di Gozde (24-23) dopo l'ennesimo pallone non chiuso da Richards e l'attacco out di Uslupehlivan: 25-23.

Modena: Grana palasport tra Modena Volley e Liu-Jo Volley

MODENA - Di qualche scintilla tra il Modena Volley (gestore del PalaPanini, il Palazzo dello Sport modenese) e la Liu-Jo Volley Modena si era sentito parlare sin dall'estate.

Storie di sponsor che hanno varcato una sponda per andare sull'altra, storie di sale pesi non concesse, di accordi economici non trovati (o solo parzialmente) tra le due realtà, di mal di pancia quotidiani nei rapporti interpersonali tra i vertici dei due club.

Oggi, ad avallare questi rumors, questo disaccordo, c'è un nota della Giunta del Comune di Modena che segue.

PALAPANINI, “TROVARE UN ACCORDO NELL’INTERESSE DI TUTTI”

Invito della Giunta a Modena Volley e Lj Volley per una gestione condivisa dell’impianto senza cambiare assetto gestionale. Comune pronto a mediare.

Nell’interesse della città, è strategico che il Palapanini continui ad ospitare sia l’attività di Modena Volley che quella del Lj Volley, come è accaduto nelle ultime stagioni sportive. È quanto ribadisce la Giunta del Comune di Modena dopo che dell’argomento si è discusso nella seduta di oggi, martedì 21 ottobre.

Il Comune, attraverso gli assessorati allo Sport e al Patrimonio, ha quindi confermato la piena disponibilità a convocare nuovamente il Modena Volley e Lj Volley per concludere l’accordo per l’utilizzo in forma continuativa del Palasport nella stagione 2014/2015.



Nella seduta di Giunta si è inoltre sottolineato come, “nonostante le difficoltà in cui versano gli enti locali, le attuali condizioni di gestione del Palapanini di Modena continuano a essere un punto di riferimento nel panorama italiano”.

Per questi motivi, nell’interesse della società e dei tifosi, il Comune, insieme alla Lega Pallavolo maschile e femminile, invita le parti a superare le divergenze che hanno portato al mancato rinnovo dell’accordo. “Un accordo che – osserva l’assessore allo Sport Giulio Guerzoni in una lettera inviata alle società – appare ampiamente alla portata, senza essere costretti a modificare l’attuale assetto gestionale, unica leva diretta su cui potrebbe intervenire l’Amministrazione comunale in qualità di proprietaria dell’immobile. Inoltre, è convinzione dell’Amministrazione che sia possibile costruire collaborazioni e progetti gestionali condivisi tra le proprietà rappresentate da imprenditori di eccellenza che hanno investito nella pallavolo e che soltanto Modena può vantare”.



Hopefully, it will be settle soon. God bless.

Marie Gillain and Nicolas Briançon (Not suitable for kids)

Marie Gillain, Nicolas Briançon, Mr. Roman Polanski plus Others Par Gilles Costaz (Not suitable for kids)



Mr. Roman Polanski en a tiré son dernier film, mais La Vénus à la fourrure, c'est d'abord une pièce de théâtre de l'Américain David Ives, inspirée du livre fondamental de l'Autrichien Sacher-Masoch paru en 1870. Le théâtre Tristan-Bernard, à Paris, monte la pièce telle qu'elle a été écrite, en en confiant la mise en scène à Jérémie Lippmann.

Un auteur-metteur en scène, Thomas (Nicolas Briançon), vient de terminer les auditions qu'il fait passer pour sa nouvelle pièce. C'est une oeuvre qui reprend le thème de La Vénus à la fourrure. Il cherche une interprète pour Vénus, il vient de voir défiler une trentaine de comédiennes, il n'en a reconnu aucune. Seul sur la scène, il peste. Plus personne ne sait jouer, il n'y a plus de bonnes actrices... Il s'apprête à partir quand arrive en retard une dernière candidate, Vanda (Marie Gillain). Elle parle le langage le moins châtié, s'excuse à peine, bouscule l'auteur, ne l'écoute pas quand il lui dit que l'heure est passée et qu'il va s'en aller. Elle veut le rôle et elle a apporté ce qu'il fallait. Elle enlève sa jupe de cuir et apparaît en corset, avec slip, bas et jarretières noires. Elle a aussi pris avec elle une robe blanche pour les passages où le personnage n'est pas en déshabillé. Et elle se met à lire le texte. Thomas se résigne, laisse l'inconnue tenter, il est sûr de pouvoir la mettre dehors rapidement. Il téléphone à l'amie qui l'attend : il ne va pas tarder à arriver...


Domination de l'homme

Mais Vanda n'est pas de ces filles bien élevées qui respectent les usages et s'en vont quand on leur demande de partir. C'est une sauvage, une furie qui fait flamber tout son corps. Elle est la "vénus à la fourrure" elle-même, bien qu'elle ne porte pas de fourrure - elle prend une bâche de plastique pour remplacer le vison absent. La domination des hommes, c'est son domaine, son royaume, sa passion. Tout est étrange dans sa présence inopinée dans ce théâtre. Elle a le texte intégral de la pièce avec elle, alors que la production n'en a envoyé qu'un extrait aux candidates. Elle fait semblant un moment de lire ce texte, mais, en réalité, elle le connaît par coeur. Elle joue la candide, mais elle sait bien des choses sur l'auteur, sa vie, et sur Sacher-Masoch.

S'étant cru le maître du jeu, Thomas se laisse prendre au filet de la belle dénudée. Elle l'empêche de s'en aller, propose des modifications au spectacle. Thomas accepte des changements, croyant encore qu'il garde les cartes en main. Mais Vanda dévore tout : le texte de théâtre, le temps, la vie. Abeille au corps rayé de noir, elle fait son miel de la faiblesse de l'homme. Jambes écartées, elle le prend dans ses pinces. Quand l'heure est venue, elle le transforme en esclave. Lui qui n'avait qu'une conception théorique de la soumission est contraint d'en éprouver l'irrésistible réalité. Il fait tous les caprices de la femme, baise ses chaussures, la possédera sans doute en étant possédé... Elle triomphe en vénus selon Sacher-Masoch, lui s'incline en esclave masochiste. Bien sûr, c'est un peu gros, on a connu des textes plus subtils.
Folie païenne

Mais la pièce, qu'Anne-Élisabeth Blateau a traduite dans une langue crue de la rue d'aujourd'hui ("chelou", "putain", etc.), prend au piège les bonnes manières, le bien-écrire, le bien-construire. L'action devient de plus en plus folle. C'est ce qu'a bien compris Jérémie Lippmann qui accélère peu à peu le mouvement et déchaîne les éléments. Il y a des éclairs et des bruits d'orage. Du plastique pend en rideaux ici et là. Le fond du théâtre se colore en rouge, en violet ou en couleurs verdâtres. Les acteurs jouent aussi dans la salle, devant la rampe... Tout le théâtre prend feu !

Quel duo admirablement contrasté que celui que forment Marie Gillain et Nicolas Briançon. Elle, on l'a connue incarnant des jeunes filles sages. La voilà en dynamite sexuelle, lançant le verbe haut en lignes brisées, avec une insolence prolétarienne, une agilité délirante et une rage à la fois païenne et philosophique. Elle est sidérante d'audace et de liberté. Nicolas Briançon déploie un jeu contraire : la nuance, la subtilité, l'élégance civilisée, le maniement des concepts, la colère rentrée, le changement progressif, le lent passage à la victimisation. Il est la délicatesse face à la tempête. L'un et l'autre mènent avec une belle intelligence ce combat qui est impitoyable, car il est celui de la femme contre l'homme, mais aussi celui de l'inconscient contre la conscience. C'est une lutte comique qui n'est pas ordinaire. On sait nous la donner ici, avec truculence, avec démence, sans la petitesse habituelle des clins d'oeil grivois chers à un certain théâtre parisien.

La Vénus à la fourrure de David Ives, adaptation d'Anne-Élisabeth Blateau, mise en scène de Jérémie Lippmann, assisté d'Aurélie Bouix. Tristan Bernard, tél. : 01 45 22 08 40. Attention : le spectacle est donné tantôt à 19 h, tantôt à 21 h, en alternance avec Le Père Noël est une ordure.

To a world so lost in sin,
Christ the Savior, enters in:
Praise Him, praise Him Christians, evermore!

Comes the glory of Christmastime!
Jesus, born in lowly stall,
With His grace redeems us all:
Praise Him, praise Him Christians, evermore!

Comes the glory of Christmastime!
Hosts of angels from on high,
Sing, rejoicing, in the sky:
Praise Him, praise Him Christians, evermore!

Supercoppa: Parla Havelkova. "Premiata la pazienza"

MONTICHIARI - Le interviste post gara dopo lo spareggio di Supercoppa.

Helena Havelkova (Busto Arsizio): "Sono felicissima per questa vittoria perché la partita è stata molto difficile. Bergamo ha giocato come sapevamo ed è un avversario davvero ostico perché tutte le giocatrici difendono benissimo ed è dura mettere a terra la palla. Abbiamo avuto pazienza e alla fine siamo state premiate. Personalmente ho fatto un po' fatica all'inizio del match, pensavo tanto alla gamba che non è ancora al meglio. Poi però mi sono sciolta e sono andata in crescendo, così come tutta la squadra".

Hypnotic Eye by Melinda Newman posted July 28, 2014

Earlier this year, Tom Petty started telling interviewers, including HitFix, that “Hypnotic Eye,” out Tuesday (July 29), would be a rock record that harkened back to the early days of the Heartbreakers. He stayed true to his word.

There’s a rawness to “Eye’s” 11 tracks that captures rock and roll’s primal nature. It’s a blast to listen to and it sure sounds like it was fun to make.

The Heartbreakers, bolstered by guitarist Mike Campbell and keyboardist Benmont Tench, are one of the finest, tightest bands in the history of rock. Not only is the musicianship and camaraderie almost unmatched, the Heartbreakers have never remotely felt the need to chase fads or trends. They are straight up, unapologetic rock and roll and on their 13th album as a well-oiled unit, they sound reliably cohesive.

Not only does the album herald back to old Heartbreakers, it recalls the ‘60s and ‘70s rock that has so informed Petty’s music: the jangly guitars and harmonies of “Red River” are redolent of The Byrds, while rollicking “Fault Lines” begins with a Doors/“Break On Through” urgency and first single, “U Get Me High, starts with a Rolling Stones woozy swagger.

Opening track, driving “American Dream Plan B,” sets the tone for the album. Petty, singing in a pinched monotone (even more so than normal), vows to fight for his dream until he gets it right, even if in 2014 that dream is woefully out of reach. Blending acoustic and electric guitars, the song is a strong salvo that sets up the disillusionment that runs through many of the other tunes. That flip side of “American Dream Plan B” is the Allman Bros.-like “Forgotten Man,” where the protagonist knows he’s in a losing battle. That alienation grows en masse on album closer, "Shadow People."

At 63, Petty has lost none of his edginess. If anything, he’s got more to rail against—he just picks his battles a little more judiciously.

While the songs are all primarily mid-to-uptempo rock tunes, Petty sprinkles other touches throughout: he adds a slight samba feel to “Sins of My Youth” that helps take the sting out of such lyrics as “You said you loved me, wish you’d like me more.” Bluesy horns and Tench’s juke-joint piano playing give “Burnt Out Town” a swampy feel. To be sure, we’ve never heard anything musically from Petty like the lighthearted, soft-shoe feel of “Full Grown Boy”on a Heartbreakers’ record (though the love tune wouldn’t have sounded out of place on a Traveling Wilburys set.)

There’s a loose aggressiveness to the album that never veers into sloppiness, instead it’s the feel of a well-oiled machine: all the parts know how to work together, especially when they stretch out on the pleasing Campbell-led jam on “All You Can Carry”— a song literally about Petty grabbing what he could as his house burned down and figuratively about the baggage we need to leave behind.

“Hypnotic Eye,” recorded in Petty’s Malibu home studio, is solid and sturdy if hardly groundbreaking. As enjoyable as it is— and and it is very enjoyable— there’s nothing on here that sounds like it could become a new classic, along such staples as “I Won’t Back Down,” “American Girl” or “Don’t Do Me Like That.” However, it’s also clear that Petty is far from coasting, especially when his “Hypnotic Eye” sees all and has so much to say.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers---- Red River

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9yuTCfI5NM

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers---- Red River

She's got a 3-D Jesus in a picture frame
Got a child that she never named
She shakes a snake above her hair
Talks in tongues when there's no one there

[Chorus:]
So meet me tonight at the Red River
Where the water is clear and cold
Meet me tonight at the Red River
And look down into your soul
Look down into your soul

She's got a rosary and a rabbit's foot
A black cat bone that treats her good
A tiger tooth and a gris-gris stick
Still it don't do the trick

[Chorus]
So meet me tonight at the Red River
Where the water is clear and cold
Meet me tonight at the Red River
And look down into your soul
Look down into your soul

I'm gonna walk her down to gypsy town
Find the spirit queen I've seen around
Paint her body up in mud and clay
Let the river wash it all away

[Chorus]
So meet me tonight at the Red River
Where the water is clear and cold
Meet me tonight at the Red River
And look down into your soul
Look down into your soul

Look down into your soul

Den sista pionjären fyller 40 by Robert Lagerström




Paddan, Traction Avant och SM. Citroën var före sin tid. Men bilarna var dyra att bygga och nya ägaren Peugeot gjorde dem mindre särpräglade. Nu fyller CX, den sista ”äkta” Citroënbilen, 40 år.

Reportage



Den var låg, lång och strömlinjeformad. En elegant premiumbil som bjöd på nytänkande och hade gashydraulisk fjädring, egensinnig servostyrning och självbärande kaross med hjälpram. Bakrutan var konkav och skapade ett vakuum som höll den ren från regnvatten och smuts.

– CX är underbar att köra. En rymlig, bekväm och överlägsen bil, konstaterar entusiasten Mikael Eriksson som är uppfödd med Citroën.

Han tycker om märkets formgivning och teknik och äger en handfull äldre bilar. Nyligen kunde han äntligen addera en CX till samlingen, en guldmetallicfärgad 1978:a i gott skick.


– CX var en väldigt dyr konstruktion och gick aldrig med vinst. Precis som de flesta bilar som Citroën tillverkade. Märket fick tidigt ekonomiska problem.

Så var också grundaren André Citroën en visionär. Han skapade originella bilar med massor av finesser, som den framhjulsdrivna och numera klassiska Traction Avant 1934, mer känd som Gangstercittran. Efter hans död förde företaget pionjärandan vidare med modeller som slitvargen 2CV och den eleganta lyxkryssaren DS – även kallad Paddan.

Det var när den senare började bli föråldrad som tankarna på en ersättare kom till. Resultatet blev CX som presenterades till 1974. Den nya modellen var både rymligare och modernare, lånade drag från den lilla familjebilen GS och hade en uppdaterad version av den gashydrauliska fjädringen från Paddan. Förarmiljön var futuristisk och de flesta instrument kunde nås med båda händerna på ratten.

– Att bilen har Diravi-servostyrning innebär att ratt och hjul förbinds genom hydraultryck. Om man släpper ratten återvänder den alltid till mittläget och styrningen går lättare i låg hastighet och trögare i högre. Vid 80 till 90 kilometer i timmen finns det ingen servoverkan alls.

Med CX hade Citroën lyckats få fram en värdig arvtagare till den älskade Paddan. Nymodigheten utsågs till Årets bil i Europa 1975 – men då var det redan för sent. Företaget hade gjort flera felsatsningar, blödde pengar och kom att tas över av Peugeot.

Visserligen fortsatte den forne rivalen att tillverka CX, men genom uppköpet blev bilarna i Citroëns namn mer slätstrukna. Det djärva försvann och märket fick identitetsproblem.

– CX är den sista äkta bilen från Citroën. Det är i viss mån även efterföljaren XM, som är plastigare och har Peugeotreglage, men som ändå är byggd på Citroënteknik. Efter den fanns det ingenting kvar av märket, säger Mikael Eriksson.

Supercoppa 2014: domani lo spareggio Busto-Bergamo

MODENA - La prima gara ufficiale della stagione di Serie A Femminile si gioca al PalaGeorge di Montichiari. Mercoledì sera, con inizio alle 20.30, Busto Arsizio e Bergamo si affrontano per stabilire quale delle due squadre contenderà a Piacenza la 19^ Supercoppa Italiana.

Uno spareggio che si è reso necessario da regolamento, in quanto Piacenza è detentrice dello Scudetto, della Coppa Italia e si è classificata al primo posto della Regular Season 2013-14. Sul campo, allora, le farfalle finaliste dei Play Off e le rossoblù finaliste di Coppa: chi vince parte per Monza, laddove sabato 25 ottobre sarà in palio il primo trofeo della stagione.

LE PROTAGONISTE - Il match si preannuncia spettacolare, per la fame degli appassionati di volley giocato dopo l'entusiasmo suscitato dai Mondiali e per la qualità delle due formazioni in campo. Entrambe presentano elementi di continuità e di novità rispetto alla scorsa annata: inevitabile individuare nella neo-biancorossa Valentina Diouf, grande ex della sfida, la protagonista più attesa.

Carlo Parisi, sulla panchina bustocca per l'undicesimo anno consecutivo, deve valutare le condizioni della ceca Helena Havelkova - tra le autrici principali della tripletta del 2012 - e della statunitense Rebecca Perry, non utilizzate nella doppia sfida amichevole dello scorso weekend contro Novara.

Anche Stefano Lavarini, per il terzo anno di fila al timone della Foppa, ha tenuto precauzionalmente a riposo nella gara di sabato scorso contro Modena Miriam Sylla e Federica Tasca per piccoli risentimenti muscolari. Il tecnico inoltre proverà a capire se Celeste Plak, stellina olandese ottima interprete al Mondiale, ha già interiorizzato gli schemi orobici.

Le due squadre si sono già sfidate una decina di giorni fa, in occasione del Trofeo '6 nel Cuore', dedicato alla memoria di Giulia Albini, Bergamo si è imposta in tre set.

LE FORMAZIONI - BUSTO ARSIZIO: Degradi, Rania, Michel, Leonardi, Marcon, Perry, Camera, Diouf, Wolosz, Havelkova, Pisani, Lyubushkina. All. Carlo Parisi.

BERGAMO: Mori, Deesing, Loda, Pillepich, Blagojevic, Merlo (L), Melandri, Radecka, Plak, Mambelli, Sylla, Tasca. All. Stefano Lavarini.

3° Palladium Cup: A Vicenza il via della stagione femminile



VICENZA - Il Pala Villanova – Telemar Sport Center di Torri di Quartesolo ha ospitato la presentazione della 3ª PALLADIUM CUP, quadrangolare di pallavolo femminile di serie A1 in programma sabato 25 e domenica 26 ottobre a Vicenza e Torri di Quartesolo.

Sul tavolo dei relatori il sindaco di Torri di Quartesolo, Ernesto Ferretto accompagnato dal consigliere comunale con delega allo sport, Giacomo Gobbi, l’assessore alla formazione del Comune di Vicenza con delega allo sport, prof. Umberto Nicolai, il consigliere nazionale Fipav, Adriano Bilato, il presidente regionale Fipav Veneto, Roberto Maso ed il presidente del Comitato provinciale Fipav di Vicenza e del Comitato Organizzatore Davide De Meo.

Al sindaco Ferretto i saluti iniziali di benvenuto: "E' un grande piacere ospitare queste squadre mettendo a disposizione il nostro palasport costruito grazie alla sinergia con i privati. Un impianto che ben si addice ai grandi eventi. Lo sport è divertimento ma anche emozione e questa va trasmessa ai giovani".

L’Assessore allo sport Nicolai, complimentandosi con gli organizzatori, ha posto l’accento su come, grazie alla pallavolo che ha dato una mano ed ha saputo dare lo sprint "il palasport di Vicenza è tornato a vivere. Vicenza ha i grandi eventi ma invidio il palazzetto di Torri, perché il nostro è vetusto pur nei suoi 1700 posti. Non dobbiamo fare più eventi solo in un posto e la Palladium è un esempio di collaborazione tra amministrazioni per dare spazio a tutti".

Il consigliere federale Adriano Bilato ha ricordato le emozioni vissute nelle diverse sedi del Mondiale e dell’opportunità di vedere all’opera nel quadrangolare tante giocatrici protagoniste con le diverse maglie nazionali. "Alcune di queste – ha spiegato poi il presidente regionale Roberto Maso – hanno giocato a Vicenza e le conosciamo bene. Sarà una grande occasione per dare visibilità alla pallavolo grazie anche alla presenza della squadra femminile veneta di vertice: il Conegliano. Per noi un orgoglio. Nonostante tutte le difficoltà, l’attività regionale prosegue e lo scorso anno abbiamo chiuso con mille tesserati in più".



Davide De Meo, ha esordito ringraziando le due Amministrazioni per aver aderito alla proposta “dando le chiavi di casa” e le società coinvolte, San Paolo Volley, New Volley Vicenza Est, Us Altair, Obiettivo Risarcimento, US Torri e Marola Volley che "avranno l’opportunità di stare vicino alle Azzurre che hanno vinto, non perso, il quarto posto mondiale". De Meo ha sottolineato come attorno all’evento si sta creando un grande entusiasmo e la corsa al biglietto sta portando velocemente al tutto esaurito. "Questo significa dare validità ad un progetto, quello della Palladium Cup, che ha l’obiettivo di dare alla platea vicentina un grande evento la settimana prima la partenza dei campionati".


"La Palladium Cup – ha concluso De Meo - è il vernissage del nostro movimento che prenderà così ufficialmente il via da questa settimana".

Al via del torneo quattro squadre di A1 femminile Conegliano, Modena, Novara e la perdente tra Busto Arsizio e Bergamo impegnate questa sera nello spareggio della Supercoppa Italiana.
