Water-rich vs water-poor countries

In the subject E.M, we watched two videos that reflected the contrast between water-rich and water-poor countries.

The first one showed how a young man who lived in a water-rich country, gives a bottle of fresh and clean water to a little girl from a water-poor country. This video was very useful in order to understand and realize how water-rich countries could help water-poor countries, just by donating clean water to them.

The second video was about a girl, who narrated her thoughts while she walked four miles in order to get some water, which was not even clean. This video made us reflect on the fact that we should be really thankful by everything that we have, even the little things that we consider obvious, just like clean and fresh water.

On partage une belle chanson française

Je ne regrette rien
pour Edith Piaf
(Photo du disque originale)

Non, rien de rien
Non, je ne regrette rien
Ni le bien qu'on m'a fait
Ni le mal
Tout ça m'est bien égal
Non, rien de rien 
Non, je ne regrette rien
C'est payé, balayé, oublié
Je me fous du passé

Avec mes souvenirs 
J'ai allumé le feu
Mes chagrins, mes plaisirs
Je n'ai plus besoin d'eux
Balayé les amours 
Avec leurs trémolos
Balayé pour toujours
Je repars à zéro

Non, rien de rien
Non, je ne regrette rien
Ni le bien qu'on m'a fait
Ni le mal
Tout ça m'est bien égal
Non, rien de rien 
Non, je ne regrette rien
Car ma vie
Car mes joies
Aujourd'hui 
Ça commence avec toi

Ce qui s’est passé en France ces dernière annés?

La tragédie de Lyon

Le Vendredi 24 Mai, 2019, un explosif déposé devant une boulangerie à Lyon a fait 13 blessés. Repéré par la vidéosurveillance, un homme à bicyclette était le principal suspect.
Qui est-il? Où est-il? A-t-il des complices? Le traque du suspect de l’attaque à l’engin explosif de vendredi 24 mai, à Lyon, se poursuivait toujours dimanche 26 mai en fin d’après-midi. Onze des treize blessés – dont une fillette de dix ans – ont été hospitalisés, mais leurs jours ne sont pas en danger.

Le suspect portait un short, une chemise noire retroussée, de grandes lunettes noires et des écouteurs. CCTV l'a découvert en plaçant l'engin explosif chargé de verrous, rue Victor Hugo, dans la ville industrielle française, à deux heures et demie de Paris en train.

Le dernier jour de la campagne, le président Emmanuel Macron accordait une interview sur Facebook Live lorsqu'il a entendu la nouvelle "d'un attentat" et mentionné qu'il n'y avait "pas de morts jusqu'à présent". 
"Ce n'est pas à moi de faire une évaluation, mais à priori il n'y a pas de victimes. Il y a des blessés et je pense à eux et à leurs familles", a déclaré le chef de l'Etat dans son entretien.

Les marchands de la rue Victor Hugo ont été confinés dans leurs affaires par les forces de sécurité. La zone était totalement fermée et tous les blessés évacués.  Le métro de Lyon était fermé dans le quartier historique.

Un hôpital de campagne pour soigner les blessés a été installé dans une boutique Jacques Riu, tandis que les pompiers chargés des urgences en France, les ambulances du Samu et la police se rendaient sur les lieux.

Le ministre de l'Intérieur, Christophe Castaner, a démenti les rumeurs selon lesquelles ils auraient trouvé plus d'explosifs à Lyon.  Le préfet a demandé de ne pas utiliser de fausses nouvelles sur les réseaux sociaux. La police a effectué une descente dans deux 
endroits de la ville.

France est en alerte pour les attaques terroristes depuis l'horrible attaque par le ISIS en Novembre 2015.

A Literary Essay on "The Moving Finger"

After reading the short story of "The Moving Finger" in literature, the teacher told us to write a literary essay connecting the three themes of the story: Love, obsession and control/lack of control. Here is mine.

A Literary Essay on “The Moving Finger”

“The Moving Finger”, written by Edith Wharton, is a short story which represents the sad tale of Mr Grancy, an old widower who could not cope with the death of his last wife. Throughout the story we can infer that all his life and his health stability depended on the conditions of the portrait of his last wife, Mrs Grancy. The portrait suffers different changes throughout the story which reflect on Mr Grancy´s health, and leads to his unfortunate death. In this essay, I am going to connect some ideas which appear in the story; Love, Obsession and Control/Lack of Control, with the relationships between the characters.
To start with, we get to know from the beginning of the story that Mr Grancy really loved Mrs Grancy, she was totally the opposite from his previous wife, this one was kind to him, sweet and it also says that she fitted perfectly into Mr Grancy´s life and at the same time, he fitted perfectly into hers “Mrs Grancy niche was her husband´s life”. As the story continues, this powerful love that he had for her, turns into an unhealthy obsession “You are my prisoner now – I shall never lose you”. This quote is something that Mr Grancy says which was a joke that they did all the time. “You are my prisoner now”, shows us a sense of obsession and control that he had over her, and “I shall never lose you” refers to this powerful love that Mr Grancy had for Mrs Grancy. When she dies, her figure remains immortal in the portrait that Claydon, a friend of Mr Grancy, had made. He continued loving her, as if she was alive, so he made Claydon modify the portrait so that Mrs Grancy would age with him since, when he came back from Europe, he saw a stranger hanging there on the wall, not his wife who he insanely loved. By knowing this, we can infer that when he said that she was his prisoner now, he meant that she would be in the portrait with him forever.
This love that Mr Grancy had for the portrait also grew into an obsession. Ten years after the first change, he made Claydon modify the portrait so that she looked exactly how he imagines that she would look in that moment, as if she was still alive. Mr Grancy still loved her so much and felt her presence through the portrait, . He is not the only one to feel her presence through the portrait, when the narrator visits Grancy, he says “I had never known how completely the dead may survive”, referring to the fact that the portrait really represented Mrs Grancy as if she was there, still alive. Mr Grancy just wanted to be with her by feeling she was there, that is why he asked Claydon to modify it. This actions from Mr Grancy can be also taken as a sense of obsession that he had for Mrs Grancy´s portrait.
The conflict here is that Claydon, had fallen in love with his masterpiece when he painted her, and consequently, he fell in love with the actual woman after he got to know her. One may suspect that´s why, in the last call from Mr Grancy to him so as to change the portrait again, he painted “the face of a woman who knows that her husband is dying”. Claydon knew that Mr Grancy´s health and well-being depended on the portrait, so we assume that he did this cruel thing so as to get rid of him and keep the portrait. The love that he had for Mrs Grancy grew and turned into an obsession so big that concluded in him killing his old friend. Moreover, the book gives us a sense that they had an affair and that’s when Claydon fell in love with the real woman, when Mr Grancy says “When Claydon painted her he caught just the look she used to lift to mine when I came in”, meaning that Claydon painted Mrs Grancy just the way that Mr Grancy looked at her, so we can infer that Claydon was in love with Mrs Grancy as well, or that Mrs Grancy was in love with him.
In conclusion, I strongly believe that love, obsession, and control or lack of control, are the themes of this story, or that they can be counted  as one, since love is expressed  through obsession and control all throughout the story. Personally speaking, I believe this story shows how love can make  you (to) do really crazy things.

A summary on Tropical Cyclones

After reading and discussing about tropical cyclones on the subject Environmental Management (E.M), the teacher told us to make a summary about it. Here is mine:


In the subject Environmental Managements (E.M), we discussed on tropical cyclones in general, but most specifically hurricanes. With the information that we gathered after answering a set of questions, the teacher told us to produce a summary including all the questions.
To begin with, a tropical cyclone is a rotating storm that has a low-pressurized center, strong winds, and heavy thunderstorms. There are three different names given to tropical cyclones depending on where these occur. If they occur in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean, around the South China sea, they are called typhoons. When they occur in the South Pacific and Indian Ocean they are referred to as cyclones, and if they happen in the Atlantic and Northeastern Pacific Ocean, in the areas around the Caribbean Sea, they are named hurricanes.
So as to identify hurricanes, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) develops a list of names, both male and female, that are assigned in alphabetical order to hurricanes as they happen in each hurricane season. Names can be repeated after six years. However, some names are never used again if the destruction of that hurricane was too big.
For hurricanes to develop, there must be certain conditions. First, they only form in areas within the tropics. Second, water temperatures should be around 27°Celsius. These temperatures only occur during the end of summer and the beginning of autumn. Moreover, there must be a low air pressure. When these conditions occur at the same time in the same geographic place, hurricanes may form. Warm air near the water rises and forms clouds, leaving an area with a lower air pressure below. When this warm air can´t hold any more moisture, it starts to rain. At the same time, cold air, sinks in this low air pressured area.That is called the eye. In the eye, it does not rain and we can appreciate a nice weather. However, the parts around the eye are the ones where there is the most turbulence, as it is the place where warm and cold air get in contact with each other. If wind speeds get up to 150 km/h, it can be called a hurricane, and winds speeds can rise up to 600 km/h.
The effects of hurricanes are different depending on where do they occur. In developed countries, the effects are less hard or devastating than in the developing or non-developed ones. Developed countries are more prepared for these hurricanes attacks, since they may have the newest technology to know when will they occur. They also have a better infrastructure, which is more prepared for high speed winds and the reparations of the affected houses or buildings would take less time. The effects of the hurricanes can be short-term or immediate, or long-term. Short-term effects includes deaths, big destruction of city, and floods which may occur. Long-term effects mostly refer to economic troubles, the rebuilding of the cities and acquiring the medicine needed. Finally, it involves the pollution of water and the treatment of diseases if someone drank that polluted water.
Effects may also be reduced by predicting these hurricanes. There are two main ways so as to predict them. The first and more efficient one is the use of satellites. The other and easiest way of predicting them is by being prepared to them depending on which season is. To measure them, we have the Saffir-Simpson scale, from 1 to 5, it measures hurricanes based on their wind speed. Hurricanes which are categories 3 or higher are considered major because of their huge damages and loss of lifes.
In conclusion, I am going to write a little bit about “The Great Miami Hurricane”. This one ocurred in September 1926, and it affected Miami and Florida. The hurricane caused massive flooding, with water from the Atlantic Ocean extending into land and covering several blocks of Miami. There were 372 deaths, and over 6.000 injuries. Its intensity was 4, comparing it with the Saffir-Simpson scale and its reparations costed $105 million, which would be over $164 billion nowadays.
