The Abbey of Valmagne de Villeveyrac

In 1139, Raymond Trencavel, Vicomte de Béziers, founded the Abbey of Valmagne in the commune of Villeveyrac, near Mèze and the pond of Thau in Languedoc Roussillon. From the 12th to the beginning of the 14th century, it was one of the richest Cistercian Abbeys in southern France.

The Abbey of Valmagne is listed as a historical monument and is also one of the oldest vineyards in Languedoc. The family who have been the owner for nine generations has opened the doors to the vineyard cathedral.

The former church was built on the foundations of a first Romanesque church between 1257 and the end of the 14th century. Visitors can discover the Russian oak wounds, over 400 hectolitres of oak found on the lower sides of the central nave. It consists of a seven-span main nave, bordered by two collateral. In the cloister is the sacristy, the “Capitular Room” also known as “Chapter Room”, the hall, the refectory and the fountain-washbasin.

The Abbey of Valmagne has mainly Gothic architecture and its foundations are Romanes. Basil plane, vaulted in rib cross, its dimensions are equal to the large Gothic cathedrals with 83 meters long and 24.50 meters high in the nave, up to 25 meters high in the transept. The latter gives way to the choir, with almond pillars, classic of Gothic architecture; Finally, the ambulatory closes the choir with nine radiant chapels.

The cloister in the northern gallery

The cloister consists of four covered galleries opening onto a garden. Each area serves all the essential parts of the monastery.

The North “Spiritu” gallery adjacent to the church wall is often called the “Mandatum Gallery or “Collations Gallery”, the monks sometimes came to listen to a holy reading, snacks and recite the Complies Office after the evening meal.

The cloister in the east gallery

The east gallery “Anima” fulfills a high spiritual function by serving: the armarium, the sacristy, the capitular room, the hall and the scriptorium. It is also the oldest part of the abbey, the decorations are made of saw teeth and the vaults in the cradle, typical elements of Romanesque architecture.

The Cloister in the South Gallery

In this gallery you will find the location of the former heater as well as the latrines. A little further away is the former refectory converted into a lounge in the 19th century. Opposite the refectory is the fountain.
The latter is surrounded by an octagonal fence topped with an open dome. The vine that climbs along the dome at more than 180 years old; she resisted phylloxera. The Fountain washbasin is a rare place: there are only two lavatory fountains left in France, Thoronet Abbey and Valmagne Abbey.

The Abbaye de Valmagne is surrounded by gardens and a “farm hostel” restaurant.

Sébastien Abellan, winner of the 277th edition of the St. Louis Festival

Le Sétois, Sébastien Abellan, became the winner of the Heavy Weights Tournament of St. Louis 2019, on August 26, after 16 years; And after the agathois David Lopez, winner of the final in 2018.

François Commeinhes, Mayor of Sète, Elyane Sarda, Municipal Councilor, Delegate for the organization of the jousts as well as the municipal team and all volunteers launched Saint Louis 2019.
Gilles-Marie Dupuy, Sétois d’origine signed the Saint Louis poster, 27 years after its last creation. The artist signs his 9th poster of the feast of the employers. A medium-class player for several years, he knows the environment of the Languedoc games and was able to convey the atmosphere of Saint Louis; The city launched the tradition of the poster in 1985.

The nautical jousts of the Saint-Louis compete on the canal called the “Royal Framework” of Sète for all categories (junior, senior, middle and heavy).
The Languedoc Nautical Joutes are part of the heritage, of the Mediterranean civilization, they make the Sétois vibrate. These allow the public regularly to recharge their batteries, to vibrate fervently, to enjoy their Mediterranean culture. The event reveals the sacredness of the people so proud and cannot envisage Sète without the Saint Louis.

The jousting tournaments allow the population to exchange their ideals, customs and especially to celebrate. The Ceremonial propels the soul of the jousts and each player is supported not by his club and by the inhabitants of the neighborhood or city concerned.
The Saint Louis Festival brings joy and celebration and numerous activities, parades, concerts, exhibitions, bars at the quay, street shows, sports events. The fireworks display on the Brise-Lame will bring to a close this 277th edition of the Saint Louis festivities.

Sète is an important port city in southeastern France, located in Occitania. Sete was created in 1666, it is bordered by the Thau pond, a salt water lagoon that hosts various animal species where the oyster culture is visible from the Ile Singulière, the famous oyster of Bouzigues.

The city is also called the “Venice of Languedoc” because of its network of canals, canals which were built to transport goods to the sea.


COBAY ANIMALS: raising and selling dogs for laboratory use

Mice, dogs, primates… France raises animals for research laboratories. Some are even programmed to be born sick.

Hidden in the heart of the Puisaye forest (30 km from Auxerre), the CEDS (Center d’Élevage du Domaine des Souches) is a company that thrives in breeding and selling dogs for public and private laboratories for experimentation.

In France, it is estimated that at least 3 to 5 million animals are sacrificed each year as an experiment, behind the 11.5 million animals tortured every year in European laboratories, a whole economy is hidden. Among other things, there are food suppliers specially designed to develop diseases, equipment companies for experiments, carriers, but also specialized breeders.

These successful laboratories are just a suffering industry that unscrupulously tests products from industries (pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, household products).

The CEDS is a major certified supplier of these laboratories and produces a good turnover, including export. The main clients of the ECSR: INSERM, medical facs, foreign public and private universities, national veterinary schools, private laboratories, research units, Safe Diet (manufacturers of custom-made dog food used for various experiments).

In Gannat, Auvergne, for example, the Harlan company has made mice and dogs its business. “In mice, human cancer cells are grown and between 1,500 and 2,000 dogs are grown per drug test.

Animals are used in four areas: Education in biology and medicine; toxicology; Applied search basic research. The question of replacing them with methods capable of providing data relevant to humans arises in different ways depending on the field concerned. The adoption of “alternative” methods is a scientific and legal problem.

In Gannat, dogs are all beagles. “Beagle is not too big, too small a race, and since it licks your hand whatever you do, it is experimented with without analgesics or anesthesia!”, explains André Ménache, director of the Scientific Committee on Antidote Europe, which aims to inform about the damage that animal experimentation causes to human health and the environment, and to promote alternative methods, explains director of livestock at La Montagne newspaper.

In Mézilles, in the Yonne, beagle is also the breadwinner of the managers of the Center d’Élevage du Domaine des Souches (CEDS).

It should be noted that this laboratory is financed, among other things, by the French association against myopathies (which organizes the Telethon every year). Donations to Telethon are therefore used to finance the CEDS and, more generally, animal experiments.

The activity of the CEDS is condemnable. Its director, Michel Carré (former INSERM researcher), says that “animals are at the service of man” (article by the Yonne Républicaine of 8 September 2012). Elsewhere in Europe, similar farms have already been closed. Cities refuse animal experimentation on their territory and declare that animals are living beings and are not laboratory equipment.

Not only mice and dogs are raised in France, there are also monkeys, the primatology center of Niederhausbergen (Alsace), run by the University of Strasbourg, which hosts 800 primates each year. More than 50-60% of them are in transit. From farms in Asia and Mauritius, macaques are quarantined and resold (about 5,000 to 8,000 euros per animal) to biomedical research laboratories. The Ministry of Agriculture has authorized the extension of the center: according to the new standards, it will be able to accommodate up to 1,600 monkeys, most of whom will be torn down.

It is time to stop referring to animal research and using “alternative” methods, knowing that animal testing is scientifically unreliable and very expensive.
Drugs tested on animals and declared harmless can have dramatic human consequences.

How can we boycott all these experiments by refusing to buy products bearing the animal test description.

Ask the organizers of funds such as Telethon to support only research methods without animals.

Another extremely beneficial demand is to create petitions against animal husbandry and laboratories, equipment companies for experiments, carriers and governments’ demand to close down and condemn these attackers, as in the case of an animal abandoned or tortured by the owner or a human person, in order to protect the animals and also the environment.An environment that needs animals for the ecological and planetary system.

The ECSR must be closed.Definitively.It is a step towards abolishing this archaic and unscientific practice of vivisection.

Study carried out at the veterinary school of Maisons Alfort on beagle dogs of the CEDS (these_uretromyoplasty_cellular_sur_la_dog).these_uretromyoplastie_cellulaire_sur_la_chienne

In all fields of human biomedical and toxicological research, animal data are accepted as valid, but they can be misleading if applied to humans.Among the consequences of these errors are:Side effects of drugs, waste of time and money developing therapies that are ineffective for humans, etc. It is time to stop referring to animal research and use so-called “alternative” methods (by the authorities), in fact genuinely scientific and reliable methods for humans.


THE SYNDIC: a satire on the current functioning of the building of the 28 countries of the European Union

By staging each country through real people, it is easy to show the sometimes caricatural character of all these neighbors living together in the same building created in 1957 by 6 economic countries (Germany, France, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg) after the two world wars.

In 1957 the first 6 families moved into this building where each owner embodies a country of the European Union, this co-ownership is managed by a funny syndic operating at least original since it is modeled on that of the Europe of Brussels and the European building, registered UE28 in the cadastre of the city, located at No. 2 Avenue de l’Atlantique in a private and guarded way, such as the UN or UNESCO.

The building is managed in three parts, the first part a very nice place, the second a model building and the third part a funny life. By showcasing each country, it is easy to show the characters living together under the same roof and their Chinese concierge of the building, Shen Ghen, creating a space where the owners always leave their door open to facilitate the delivery of mail .

The construction of a future common to all European countries has taken place in several stages, from the aftermath of the Second World War to the present day. From six founding countries in 1957, the European community has grown steadily to 28 members today where the UK is about to leave the European building, as it considers the progress of the economic evaluation system very weak.

The six countries founded the European Economic Community (EEC) and the European Atomic Energy Community (EAEC), the origin of the European Union, which grew to nine, ten, twelve and fifteen initially, these states are traditionally regarded as the former member countries of the European Union. To date, the EU has grown from 6 countries in 1957 to 28 with 7 waves of new member states, commonly referred to as “enlargements”.

In 2004, 10 countries entered the EU (Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Malta and Cyprus), joined in 2007 by Romania and Bulgaria, then in 2013 by Croatia.

Today, the European Union is composed of 28 Member States, representing more than 500 million Europeans but following the referendum in the United Kingdom on June 23, 2016 in favor of Brexit, it should end at 27 but the date of departure of Great Britain is not yet determined to this day.

During the 1950s, the United Kingdom had kept clear of all attempts at European integration that might call into question its sovereignty, its relations with its former Empire and its privileged relationship with the United States. But during the 1960s, the British reoriented their foreign policy towards an increasingly prosperous continental Europe.

In 1971, after two refusals from France, which feared a weakening of the Communities, the United Kingdom saw the doors of the common market open. He was officially admitted on 1 January 1973, accompanied by Ireland and Denmark. The Communities (ECSC, EEC, EAEC) thus go from 6 to 9 members.

THE SYNDIC: “a book with a satirical tone written by the author Gonzague DEJOUANY” transforms every country into real people, starting with the establishment of European unions by the first six countries, through a beautiful satirical and caricatural description; “Number 2 therefore, the atypical building of the street, built in 1957 by the famous architectural agency of world reputation, MONNET, SCHUMAN, and referenced parcel N ° CECA in the cadastre of the city Jean MONNET and Robert SCHUMAN , the two associate architects, played their career on this project.They are not the only ones on the grill, because it has simplified for commercial reasons the extended name of their architectural agency which is entitled to the full suit: Cabinet MONNET, SCHUMAN, ADENAUER, SPAAK, GASPERI, BECH AND BEYEN. ”

By replacing each country with its representatives, it transforms the image of each State into a character telling the launch of Europe through a caricature sarcasm and facilitating the understanding of all readers.

The building has changed since its inauguration in 1957, when the first 6 families moved in. These founders, the men, the Von und Zu Viel (who can be translated by the “Too Much”), the Forzza, the Polder, the Van der Union and the Dr Holding have had to make room for new neighbors until the youngest, Ante Novoric, a Croatian, recently arrived in 2013.

The author describes how the name of the building was modified during the installation of each new tenant, C.E.C.A. in EC (European Community) finally in the EU (European Union); “The occupants have all wanted to change the name to find a more consistent with their new standing and their image and have all opted for CE (…)” But as it changes all the time, not easy to follow. It’s not very sexy either for such a beautiful building. “(…)” It is important to know the historical framework of a building before an intervention, the different evolutions may have profoundly modified the structure of the building itself. ‘building. As usual, the trustee still voted for the umpteenth change of name in 2013, because there are in the building 28 co-owners today, in any case, 28 apartments on eight floors, say rather 7 floors and half. To celebrate this figure and this beautiful evolution since the beginning, the inhabitants finally agreed on UE28 which is none other than the updated number of the parcel in the municipal land registry. ”

And yet, the author amuses us, by a slight narrative of the German Chancellor Angela, perceived by the neighbors as a queen of the building when they speak to her, a bit like English when they speak of the queen.

“She is so well known and respected in the building that we rarely use her name when we talk about her: we simply say” her. “A bit like in England with the Queen.” (…) First of all, this couple of Germans, Konrad and Angela von und Zu Viel, are among the oldest owners with their son, Karl-Otto. ”

Gonzague DEJOUANY, manages to intervene in a dialogue with the concierge of the building, to present a new project establishing the economic and sustainable level of the environment in relation to the ecological system, by making an extremely simple introduction, observing to what point guardian, of Asian origin, is afraid of losing the economic pillars of modern technology, she wants to see what the project proposes to facilitate copying. In fact, the babysitter does not know the sustainable system of the environment, but is very interested.

A paragraph from the book “The Trustee” shows how China wants to conclude a global economic agreement and manages to settle easily in the European Union;

“Gonzague DEJOUANY: -Yes, I have a mission signed by the City Council and I must establish a plan to make this building more modern.

Shen Ghen: – That is to say?

GD: – I have to digitize the building, see how we can install artificial intelligence and make it as durable as possible.

SG: – Intelligence you say? Good idea, this house will need it! And sustainable I hope it will be, sustainable. (…)

SG: – Ah! But for that, I think we have what we need too. I mean the very artificial side. (…) I’m Chinese (…).

In the second chapter, the authors describe the modernity of the building, trying to describe the importance of the 28 inhabitants of the EU and their role for the citizens of the 28 countries.

The question is common knowledge of when to achieve common interests on the 28 countries.

While going through each sub-chapter, we find common explanations under a European interest, known for free movement, the right to live, but also certain rules where there is no intervention in each of them (each apartment As one thinks, everyone in his apartment decides as he wants according to a law that he respects according to the legislation of the Member State.

Trying to understand exactly certain agreements, respect external relations, trade and international exchanges, human rights in France or equality of life are common points for the EU-28.

A funny life is the part 3 of the book where we discover a flying tortilla, ok but also refusals or abandonment, for example the Brexit a real difference between England and the European Union, but also a misunderstanding between English citizens and the government, an opportunity to merge sarcastic humor or even many humorous explanations.

A pill that goes bad, not easy to swallow, trying to swallow to ingest it, has become a real disaster with many stress-related side effects, for so many who served as guinea pigs during the campaign … if you follow well, this is the merger of Brexit and Brexin (for and against) leaving the EU.

After the day’s problems of varying importance, the choice of a new search engine that “does not confuse privacy with a paid public place”, brings clarification in the current EU28 column on important events behind the Mediterranean square, in the southern suburbs of the city where trafficking of all kinds led to a war of gangs that until the arrival of DECH (name drawn from their place of origin , the garbage dump), a new band very violent, kept a relative balance. As a result of the growing insecurity and misery of the people associated with the clashes, the EU28 building is becoming a refuge, ideal for generations of poor people who are trying to enter after suffering caused by car or bus accidents used by mafias… .

“The cause of this flare-up was a relentless struggle between rival gangs to get their hands on the neighborhood and enjoy a monopoly on all kinds of trafficking: drugs, human trafficking, prostitution, weapons. (…) The police and the judiciary have never dealt with such extremist and uncontrollable criminals. Several hostage-taking took place, these people are real suicide bombers from another time. (…) As a result of the increasing insecurity in the city and the misery that afflicts all these poor people, the EU28, when it is not prey to gangs, is an ideal refuge and Eldorado for an entire generation. (…) For all those unfortunate, the EU28 HAS BECOME THE PLACE TO REACH ANY PRICE.”

This book is a true literary work of a satirical style, but it also draws on an economic theme that has proved its worth during the 60 years of the construction of the European Union, but also on the failures and daily problems experienced during those years.
For example, we can see Turkey’s application for membership, the desire to integrate the countries of Eastern Europe, the Greek economic system, or even the clashes of emigration to the Mediterranean, as well as the waves of attacks suffered during those years of construction.

Having studied graduate studies in economics in Germany and graduate studies in business in Paris, Gonzague DEJOUANY has performed most of his professional duties in the German-speaking area (Germany, Switzerland, Austria).
In 2007, he became CEO of Veolia Environnement for Switzerland and Austria, and CEO of EDF Germany and CEO of Berlin in 2011.
A convinced European, Gonzague DEJOUANY is deeply convinced of the essential role of Germany and France for the future of Europe, but in a spirit of renewal in line with this new century.
His willingness to participate in the Franco-German relationship on a daily basis led him to become involved in the Berlin Business Club, which he transformed into the “Franco-German Economic Circle”, assuming his Presidency from 2012 to 2016.
Today, Gonzague Dejounany is president of The Nesting Company, expert on cross border Franco-German activities and president of the new Franco-German citizen movement, “Ensemble”.

In order to understand this book satirically, it is good to know what is behind it . Recommending the book “The Trustee” is a tribute to the author’s career and his interpretations.

Expert in new urban technologies and particularly involved in Franco-German relations, Gonzague Dejouany wrote this true European saga to express his commitment to this continent and to the European construction, a garden in constant construction.

“The great mistake of the European Union is to believe that it is Europe…” Gonzague Dejounany


Iman Hassen Chalghoumi present at the National Assembly for a conference on the renewal of the tensions in the Arabo-Persian Gulf

A conference resting on the topic of the renewal of tension in the AraboPersian Gulf was organized by the geopolitician Frédéric Encel and Paris School of Business, Friday, June 21 of 14:00 to 18:00, Colbert room at the National Assembly.

A program made up of 2 round tables of experts directed by Frédéric Encel, Doctor HDR into geopolic and professor in Paris School of Business, for the first and Hugo Billard, professor of geopolitics in CPGE, presenter on radio Notre Dame, director of school handbooks and lecturer in geopolitics and geoeconomy for the second, was organized around the Persian Gulf States and of the economy related to oil.

Following the many tensions which burst since of the months in the AraboPersian Gulf (Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Oman and a few kilometers of coasts with the enclave of Musandam), a conference was held placing the emphasis on the interference of the frontier countries and the development of the radical bunches which destabilize the area.

The first round table which was entitled: Rustled of boots in the Gulf the intervention of personalities saw on 4 topics related to the area: Allies of France in the Gulf with the reflections of François Loncle, former President of the commission of the Foreign affairs to the Parliament Nationale.Les challenges of the Strait of Ormouz by Nassima Ouhab, doctor of economy and teaching with Paris XL Iran and its Shiite axis by JeanSylvestre Mongrenier, researcher in Institut Thomas More. Which role plays Hezbollah? by the independent journalist Emmanuel Razavi.
Situation and challenges, impacts national and international were approached there just like the interference of the bunches and the foreign countries.

The second round table had as a main idea, the Persian Gulf in all its States and related to geopolitics: Houtis in Yemen by Khatar Abou Diab, research professor in Paris XII.Géopolitique maritime of Iran by Hugues Eudeline, captain (CR). The challenge complexes of Turkey by Nora Seni, professor of the universities in IFG.Les Emirates, a rising power by David RigouletRoze, doctor of science policies.
Graphs with the support, the risks dependent on oil and its trade through the sphere were shown.

In addition, the town of Trouville (14), will accommodate the next June 29th and 30th, the 4èmes meetings of geopolitics whose topic, this year will be the borders. Placed under the high patronage of the Foreign Minister, JeanYves Le Drian, they will propose 8 round tables.

At the time of the conference of May 21st, the first intervention was that of François Loncle, politician who replaced Mendès France after the death of this last in 1982. Since the end of the Second World War in 1945, the power struggles dominate and should be founded an international strategy: Russia blocks, China wants to change but with its interest. Thanks to JeanYves Le Drian (with the defense of 2012 to 2017 pennies the fiveyear period of François Hollande then to the Foreign affairs since 2017 and the election of President Emmanuel Macron), the dialogue is easier visavis presidents Trump and Bolsanéro. France wants to keep the link with the Persian Gulf some are the difficulties. The attacks of May and November 2015 marked France and the terrorist threat djiadist of Daesh reached Mali and the old colonizing countries. G5 the Sahel is long in being spread so much from the point of view political, legal, ideological, economic; France consolidates its European commitment compared to certain countries of Europe which seek division.

Concerning the sale of weapons, their exploitation brings the sovereignty and the capacity of renewal. Thus in Yemen, the coup detat is supported by Iran, AlQaida (terrorist organization islamist of inspiratiion Salafist Jihadist rested in 1987 by the sheik Abdullah Yusuf Azzam and its pupil Oussama ben Laden) and Daesh (terrorist organization, soldier and policy, of Salafist ideology Jihadist having proclaimed on June 29th, 2014 the introduction of a caliphate on the territories under its control). At the beginning of June, Abou Oussama alMouhajir and other members of Daesh to Yemen were stopped by a commando saoudoYemeni.

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have as for them a strategic partnership which respects the proposal of Europe on the armaments, each vote studies the proposals point by point.

Iran, on its side follows negotiations with the United States without France and Germany and one can note at the latter a common point: will to be present to prepare peace while following a line which can last and continue.
The second point touched the strait of Ormouz, its economic issues, policies and soldiers. Located between the sea of Oman and the Indian Ocean, he is the Master of the situations of the Gulf, in particular for oil (each day, 19 million barrels forwards by the strait is 90% of the productions coming from Saudi Arabia and 98% from those from the United Arab Emirates mainly from Kuwait and Barhein, but also liquid gas of Qatar).
Since the withdrawal of the United States of the Iranian nuclear agreement of July 14th, 2015, increasingly strong pressure on Iran was put by the USA. In spite of the threats of May 8th, 2019 of Teheran to grant a 60 days deadline to the other signatories of the agreement to maintain their commitments and to allow Iran to be able to sell her oil in the world, the EU tried to circumvent the sanctions of Washington by creating Instex, a supposed entity to be used for the payment of the transactions between the European companies and Iran and to do without the American dollar in the international transactions. However Iran did not close the strait of Ormouz of which depend Oman, the USA and China and which makes it possible to Dubai to be the turntable for the goods coming from Asia. If the strait were blocked, it would have reached there with the sovereignty of the states. The IranIraq war of 1980 to 1988, of the variations on the oil price as in 1986 when one noted a fall going up to 50%, marked this period; in 1988, the USA did not accept the blackmail and retorted by bombardments; in 1991, France, Belgium and the United Kingdom intervene visavis the IraqKuwait conflict, the USA protect the region although their needs are not engaged and turn over to the MiddleEast because of the war to Syria. In addition, if Iran wants to improve its economic situation, it must avoid a war where it would be the large losing one, however the night of June 20th, 2019, Iran cut down an American drone, which brings consequences on the region and of prohibitions to the nationals of certain Moslem countries to go to the USA.

The intervention of the journalist of Total Geo News, Emmanuel Ravazi, in whom it expressed the part played by Hezbollah (founded in June 1982, but revealed publicly in February 1985, this Shiite islamist group is also a political party based in Lebanon. Its paramilitary activities are supervised by the central Council Jihadist. The organization is sometimes described as Shiite Jihadist).  In this context, Hezbollah is the armed wing of Iran whose Israel and the USA are the subjects of their hatred. The Shiite axis is directed by the Iranians, with its allies, Syria and the Lebanese Shiite terrorist group of the Hezbollah, which succeeded where nobody of other succeeded since the First war of Lebanon in 1982. The starting point of the belligerencies in all the area is Afghanistan invades by the USSR in 1979.
Among the asked questions by the audience, the role of Qatar compared to Iran. There is a risk which comes from the organization of the Guards of the Revolution (forces defensive to protect the Iranian revolution, according to Teheran and terrorist organization according to Washington), knowing that Qatar tied relations with the Muslim brothers starting from 1949.
In the second round table, many graphs made it possible to understand what are the risks for oil in the event of closing of the strait of Ormouz, when it is known that 17% of the oil market, 12% exported natural gas and 20% of gas liquid towards the Asian markets come from Iran and of Qatar, that accounts for 50% of the production from OPEC and 70% of the Japanese imports, the supply for the USA is weak, 12% to 14% for France;
Hugues Eudeline, captain spoke about the exchanges made by setting sail. Indeed, the oceans account for 71% of the sphere and be in hiding 29%, Suez Canal and of Panama are the only means to make them communicate between them by knowing that 90% of the goods pass by the sea, the New silk routes proposed by China account for only 5% of the traffic. The shortest way between Europe and Asia remains the sea route. However, China and Russia work out the project to pass by the poles.

Nora Sini spoke about the complex game of Turkey; on a side, the reconciliation with Saudi Arabia against Iran, other sorrow for the death of the former president Morsi a few days ago. The strategy is based on the role of the woman in the company.

Concerning the municipal elections of June 23rd, the candidate of president Erdogan was beaten, the victory of the opposition put an end to 25 years of control of the camp islamoconservative to the town hall of Istanbul, plus big city and economic capital of Turkey.

At the tourist level, Turkey was the first destination for the E.A.U and Saudi Arabia, however one notes a fall of 70% of the travel due to the hostility of the Saoudis.

After the Council of Coordination between Turkey and Saudi Arabia, 2 distinct groups were formed: Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar (Pro rebellion) and Iran, Iraq and Lebanon (against). In 2017, Qatar disunites itself of Arabia and Turkey remains alone with the international one.

Another point of belligerency, Yemen with the internal conflict which opposes it to the Houthis rebels, (armed, political and theological organization zaïdite, activates initially in the governorship of Sa dah and the NorthWest of Yemen, then starting from 2014, in all the country), supported by Iran. Khatar Abou Diab, research professor in Paris XII tried to explain the reasons of this civil war which began in 2004 in north from Yemen then in the south starting from 2014. These last weeks, the attacks of Houthis have multiplied against camps of the coalition carried out by the Saoudi army for more than 4 years.

Last topic approached, rise of the emirates. The latter wish to reinforce peace visavis the 2 threats which are the rise to power of the islamist currents in the context of Arab spring and the expansionism Shiite. Members of the military coalition in Yemen, taken along by Saudi Arabia since March 23rd, 2015, they had recalled their ambassador to Teheran in 2016 after the separation of Saudi Arabia and Iran; they are at the sides of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt in the conflict against Qatar which supports the movements resulting from the Muslim brothers and his proximity with Iran.

In the assembly the moderate Imam Hassen Chalghoumi was which supported the visit of the Pope with the E.A.U at the beginning of year and which has just returned from a travel of peace organized to Ramallah and in Israel, accompanied by about forty young people Muslim of all France and 5 of Mollenbeck; they met Israeli dignitaries of which the President of the Republic as well as Ramallah. The goal of this travel was to show that it is possible to get along between Jews and Muslims.

Since its return in France, the Chalghoumi Imam which militates for the bringing together between Jews and Muslims, to start in its town of Drancy, but also against any form of integrism, still received death threats, to date 22, on behalf of integrist which treat it of collaborator and traitor whereas he is simply only one emissary of peace.

Gironde: Par-not-par, the enigma of the disappearance of Neandertal and their place of life preserved, the scientific version of Christian Tréguier

Do you know the prehistoric cave of ParnotPar, near to Blaye? Discrete, one of oldest of the world, it testifies to the first artistic steps of humanity. The drawings that our remote ancestors and their preserved place of life left there, insufflate an incredible emotion.

Discovered at the end of the nineteenth century by François Daleau in 1881, the cave of ParnotPar is located at the exit of PrignacandMarcamps, one of the oldest prehistoric places with traces of intimacy of our remote ancestors.

The Man of Néandertal, or Neanderthal man, is an extinct species of the Gay kind, which lived in Europe, in the Middle East and in Central Asia, until approximately 30,000 years before our era, while going back to approximately 450,000 years. This ancestor shares with Homo sapiens an ancestor common going up to approximately 660,000 years. The most former recognized fossil Neanderthal men as such are those of Sima of los Huesos, gone back to 430,000 years.

Since its discovery in 1856, its statute varied: a time considered as a subspecies of Homo sapiens and named Homo sapiens neanderthalensis consequently, he is regarded today as a species except for whole named Gay neanderthalensis.

First identified fossil man, contemporary of Homo sapiens, the Man of Néandertal suffered a long time from negative judgments compared to the modern Man. Progress of the prehistoric archeology since years 1960 has in fact revealed mankind of a certain cultural development. It controlled various techniques advanced like joining with the pitch of birch, and certain fossil vestiges gone back to less than 70,000 years are regarded as burials testifying to funerary rites.

Many points still remain to be elucidated, like its precise ascent as well as the date and the conditions of its extinction after more than 400,000 years of existence. The last known Neanderthal vestiges fossil or archaeological are gone back to less than 30,000 years, in the south of the Iberian peninsula, in the Crimea, and in the Caucasus. However, these datings remain discussed within the scientific community.

It is what Christian Tréguier tries to discover through a detailed and ludic analysis which carries us in the middle of a forgotten world, in the vestiges of our common past.

While letting express the walls engraved by our ancestors, let us try to understand what was the life of Sapiens, Néanderthal and the animals which populated these regions then.

Christian Tréguier, request officially that this test which gives the answer to the enigma of the disappearance of Neandertal is considered following the example of a report of thesis on work and can be worth to him to be invited to in 2019 support its thesis in front of a jury.

Under a timbered hillock, have been preserved for more than 30,000 years of engravings of animals whose horse with turned over head, very first collecting of the movement in Article Women and men of prehistory, Neandertal like Homo sapiens, lived there. Traces of its regular occupation remain, a source having dug a basin in the cave.

Christian Tréguier, impassioned by prehistoric art thinks of having updated of interpretations of works of a cave in the Gironde.

Christian Tréguier, this technician is impassioned since always by parietal art, in a work which it defines as a memory of thesis, it explains his research and lucky finds on the cave of ParnotPar, located at PrignacandMarcamps, in the Gironde.
Its thesis, it would wish to support it in front of a jury in 2019. Without university course in this field, here which poses problem somewhat, but a question arises: how does one come from there to write a book on such a subject? I discovered a Neanderthal man.

First Saturday of March 2009, comfortably sitted in my armchair, I divided into sheets a review which I appreciate much for the quality of his articles. I want to speak about the Archéologia review. This day, it was number 451.

As from this moment, is born a great interest for the place; it will not have of cease to be interested in the cave of ParnotPar, and a sensational discovery which it has the chance to make directly is born.

On page 12, was spread out full page, a stereotype taken by Mister and Mrs Delluc, both eminent prehistorians who me spontaneously and gracefully yielded the rights of it. This photography shows us the emblematic engraving of this site: this famous Agnus dei A horse called thus by its discoverer François Daleau, the archaeologist who discovered the site and excavated it meticulously since 1881. It found to him some similarities with the paschal lamb which decorates one of the capitals of a church close to the site.

If he hitherto did not have any doubt as for his readings about parietal art, it is not any more the case. He wonders, inter alia things, about one of the representations of the cave: a horse.
I have doubt because the horse is badly read. There exists, but its head is not there. I am likely to know the horses, it is for that that challenged me. If not, I would have accepted, like everyone.
During nine years, he gets caught up and carries out, of at his place, assiduous research. Not being able to carry out research on site, it rests on two photographs given by Brigitte and Gilles Delluc, archaeologists. These stereotypes, it colourizes them to underline the elements which it sees and to support its speech.
It finds a dozen interpretations then that it puts in writing. Perhaps I have the eye, I do not know.

I realized in November 2009 that my interpretation was erroneous. The meticulous personal study that I made of this engraving changed this fisherman into valorous warrior of the very first wave of modern men who broke unrelentingly on this Neanderthal territory. This hero, is represented accompanied by several comrades themselves here carrying trophies posed on their coverchief This engraving describes us one particularly horrible moment: that where these sanguinary killers, finally removed from unfavourable defense, located the hidingplace of the population without defense and ruent the weapon held up, straight on the women, children and old men Neanderthal to massacre them! Sordid detail: this unhappy population had taken refuge all at the bottom of a cavity, at the placeeven which was used to him as cemetery. The killers walk briskly in the middle of the skeletons.

Here the first head trophy of the garland of victory of the principal hero of engraving whom I discovered with ParnotPar, cave decorated with the Gironde, France. Suspended on the right shoulder of the hero of engraving, it is visible of right profile. The right ear seems missing. With ParnotPar in the Gironde, France, four Neanderthal heads attached by hair on the garland of victory of the frightening hero of superb and horrible engraving which openly acknowledges the massacre of the clan of ParnotPar.

Another interesting question could be posed: Did each tribe fight only the detested enemy who was in limit of his territory?

I highlighted the interesting layouts of them. You thus see the killer/hero in action. Two stuffed heads decorate its coverchief. There could be one or two others of them well. (in this cave, another warlike scene shows a Sapiens warrior cutting the throat of a Sapiens sentinel. The killer carries three stuffed heads posed plays against cheek above his head. Its victim carries only one pretty hairstyle of feathers falling down in range on the left side very interesting detail: these works are coded! They are directed, one with 90°, (case of the massacre of the Neanderthal clan), the other, case of the elimination of the Sapiens sentinel, with 180° of the normal. These works were thus booked with the sight of the warlike elite of the clan.

Christian Tréguier was challenged by one of engravings of the cave of ParnotPar, it published a novel: The appalling consent with the Persée editions, in the collection archives of time. Its history is base around an engraving, carried out some 35,000 years ago, which it discovered in 2009, by reading a review of archaeology number 451.

It is disproportionate. The neck is too long, the back legs step good, the head is more that of a tricératops that of a horse. That challenged me.

While turning the photograph of engraving, it sees a man there. From there, he imagines the account of the life of Taram, his life, his huntings, his wars.

If its hero is called Taram, it is in reference to Taramis, the god of the war of the Celts. In his book, Christian Tréguier romanticizes the life of the various characters of the clan and evokes the massacre of the Néandartaliens last.

Christian Tréguier, gives his hero, the lifestyle, the habits, the armament of the time, clothing, the way of behaving with the enemies. The book is hard, the author considers who justifies this hardness by stressing that it is the war.

First and the last, just north of the estuary of the Gironde appeared at editions Amalthée and the historical novel entitled the appalling consent published at Persée, an answer to the enigma of the disappearance of Neandertal from which is born a great interest for the place. This test gives to ParnotPar a good dozen absolutely splendid works, on the life, its huntings, its wars, the massacre of the Néandartaliens last, discovered in the sight of the author in his scientific version.

Does one go towards a natural replacement of the pesticides? Not with the glyphosate

Saturday, May 18, of the thousands of people met in Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux or Lille in order to denounce the activities of Bayer Monsanto and other giants of agrochemical following the many complaints engaged against Monsanto in the world.

The biodiversity was in the center of the concern of the demonstrators. They asked the replacement of the pesticides by healthier and natural manures following the judgments by the American justice of the glyphosate which proved to be cancerogenic. The soughtafter goal is the prohibition of the hazardous substances for the human ones and health because the financial sanctions cannot be sufficient;  the states must be invested as soon as possible.

But what the glyphosate? It is about a systemic foliar herbicide total, i.e. nonselective, absorptive by the sheets and with generalized action. This weeding more is sold with the world (800 000 tons a year) thanks to its ease of use and its moderate price. Marketed under the Roundup brand by Monsanto since 1974, its patent passed in the public domain in 2000. in the hexagon, it was the herbicide more sold between 2008 and 2013 are 9000 tons used a year (approximately 7500 for an agricultural use and 1500 for a use in garden). However, he was recognized, according to the report produced following a study of about fifteen epidemiologists resulting from research institutes international, that the glyphosate, just like 2 insecticides, the terbuphos and the deltamethrine, were responsible for one plus a large number of risks of lymphomas not hodgkiniens in the farmers, of advantage touched that the rest of the population by these rare leukemias. This research gathered data gathering more than 315,000 farmers on more than 10 years in France, Norway and in the United States. Health and the biodiversity must be preserved harmfulness of the pesticides.

It takes approximately 2 years so that the chemical group Bayer finalizes in June 2018, the purchase for 63 billion euros of Monsanto which loses its name following mistrust and the bad one felt population. This operation makes it possible to the Group Bayer to hold 20% of the global market (seeds and plant health). But it proves that the transaction as juicy as is not envisaged because of many disappointments and legal affairs are turned over against Bayer Monsanto and his herbicide which since 2015 (after about forty years without difficulties), is classified by an agency of WHO, like cancerogenic probable for the man.

Following these disappointments, 13,400 requests and lawsuit resounding with the United States where the Group was condemned to pour fines record (including 2 billion dollars to a couple of pensioners reached of a lymphoma nonhodgkinien) because of the cancerogenic character of RoundUp, herbicide to the glyphosate of Monsanto, the course of the title of Bayer at the Stock Exchange fell of 40%.  At the time of last the A G, held last Friday, the shareholders dismissed to 55.5% the actions of the directory. In addition, the financial sanctions with regard to the firms are not dissuasive and one thinks of going towards prohibition of these hazardous substances.

In France, a national campaign, launched on May 3rd by the collective of citizens and citizens From the Ariège, revealed on May 29th that after a screening test of the glyphosate organized on the urine of 20 people, there was glyphosate in their urines beyond the standard for the drinking water (0.1 nanogramme per liter), a varying result of 0.28 minimum with 2.44 nanogrammes per liter. In the Tarn, 67 people will carry felt sorry for against any person implied in the distribution and the diffusion in the probably carcinogenic environment of molecules of glyphosate.

In the country, 71 departments joined the countryside and 48 of them began the tests in order to prevent that the generations to come are not affected by what they eat. According to the study of the American biologist Michael Skinner, an exposure to the glyphosate could involve persistent genetic modifications on several generations.

After the revelation of an illegal pointing for the group of Monsanto agrochemicals of hundreds of personalities in particular relating to their position on the glyphosate, number of them decided to carry felt sorry for, one raises among them several researchers and leaders of the research institutes of the INRA and CNRS.

Political side, France intends to leave the glyphosate but the expiry seems pushed back, waited until the Ecophyto plan was to make it possible to leave there in 2018;  the pressures of the lobbys seem to slow down the commission of Brussels and the EU not counting the firms which try to intimidate the scientists. Moreover, the use of the glyphosate increases profitability but made disappear family agriculture and the farms following the pressures from large distribution on the prices, with the dumping of the imports, the absence of alternative mature and assistance to the transition towards a new agriculture.

Although the effectiveness is not still proven of it completely effective, there exist products which could replace the glyphosate of which Clairland containing pelargonic acid, just like Bayer Natria Garden and Solabiol.
