From the Financial Times:

Jacques Chirac, French president, on Thursday night stormed out of a European Union summit after a French industrialist began addressing leaders of the bloc in English.

Mr Chirac and two senior ministers walked out in protest at the decision of Ernest-Antoine Seilliere, head of the Unice employers organisation, to make a plea for economic reform in ‘the language of business’.

Symbolic for the troubled times in the EU?

    Estoy de acuerdo contigo, aunque sí puede ser que se quiera dedicar más a la vida privada. Todos en algún momento decimos que hasta aquí hemos llegado, y lo mejor es cortar por lo sano. No cabe duda de que en el caso de Dª Esperanza sea más complejo.

    Merci pour ce billet, surtout pour le passages sur les sacrifiés du lockout, ces petits salaires balayés par un système sans pitié pour les « losers ». Je pense aussi à ces clubs turcs, de foot ou de basket, qui recrutent à coup de millions mais n’ont pas honte d’être au sein d’un pays dont le PIB par habitant est de 12000 $ par an, avec une inflation de presque 9%…

    Thanks for writing about Good Enough Is the New Perfect, Kim! The finding that surprised me most was that moms cited unrelenting perfectionism as the biggest roadblock to work/life balance. We were sure it would be inflexible employers, spouses who didn’t contribute enough, the need for more money, or one of the traditionally cited reasons. That one blew us away! I also wanted to mention that blogger/entrepreneurs Amy Lupold Bair, Cooper Munroe, Emlly McKhann and Alli Worthington are featured in Good Enough Is the New Perfect.

    Quand tu parles d"avoir "plus à dire" à un proche, tu es dans le "qualitatif" et je pense que la notion d'entropie est complètement distincte d'une estimation de la "valeur" du contenu. N'oublions pas qu'une image de bruit video a une entropie plus élevée que celle de n"importe quelle image "lisible"…Mais je suis d'accord avec toi :la conclusion de tout ça, c'est que la notion d'entropie est complètement insuffisante pour décrire les échanges entre humains !

    When the rulers go out of control, it becomes the people's responsibility to reform the system;and if they won't act on that responsibility, then tyranny is all they're going to get.I believe the American people still have a chance to prevent this from happening.

    Yo también pienso que el titular es un poco desafortunado.Me ha gustado la ilustración y el artículo interesante. Hablar de iphone vs android, es como hablar de religión o política. Para mi es una cuestión de principios, me gusta mi samsung con android, cumple todas mis espectativas y hasta que no me convenza de lo contrario no pienso seguirle el rollo al negocio que se han montado con el iphone … ¿dicen que para antes del verano el iphone5? pero si sólo hace meses que salió el 4!!, qué tortura para los que quieren estar siempre a la última!

    Flickvännen som avslutar sin sjuksköterskeutbildning i sommar tycker jag ska få detta kort. Hon har varit helt fantastisk och fått många lovord på sina praktiker. Jag är säker på att hon kommer att göra ett utomordentligt jobb som sjuksköterska, och höja standarden på sin nya arbetsplats, oavsett var hon hamnar. Hon förtjänar en uppmuntran för detta. Jag älskar dig <3

    So, you’d rather give up our number one pick and pay more money for a guy with an obp below .300? I think Upton is a guy who is going to look a lot less good as we watch him for a whole season. Yes, he brings the HR, but less D than Pagan and a ton of outs.

    Some months ago, my mom gave me a vintage mink cape. I havn’t worn it yet. Im quite a hypocrite too. I guess, that I think it’s “ok” to wear vintage fur. Im a vegetarian too, I eat fish thoug. And If there is one thing I can’t stand, it’s people who eats loads of meat, have leather bags, boots u name it, but still tell you how wrong wearing fur is..

    Also, the distinction between feeling insecure and being actively persecuted is often the difference between life and death, literally, that of anticipating how bad things could get.Now if only you could be bothered to apply that notion to anyone other than your fellow Jews — like say, Palestinian children — then you’d be on the road to divesting yourself of your racist, imperialistic attitudes toward the Jewish nation.

    How perfect! Ashton just asked me to make some pumpkin pie yesterday, but I have never made it before and I have some pureed pumpkin in the fridge right now. I’m going to make this today and have one very happy boy when he comes home from school! But I think I’ll make them into pot pies, because everything is more fun to eat when you get your own bowl ;)

    Thanks for the tip. I know about the ‘interlock’ switches for the covers. I have a nice piece of aluminium bar I can wedge in the rear (CPU cover) Interlock to override it With an interlock out it doesn’t even power on. In my case it powers on but isn’t POSTing or bootstrapping, i.e. the OCP panel lights but it’s staying blank.
