 I'm currently at work and I'm thinking about aa1234779 or usman. They are probably fine. I hope you watched the good movies of the forum like Get out or Osama.
Tonight, I will probably upload a new verion of win 10: it wont be RS3 but windows 2016 enterprise ltsb. It's a sanitiezed version of win10, no cortana, no edge... but wmp, net fx 4.7, 3.5, dx 11, dx 9, as well as many programs like winrar, 7zip... are present.
It will be totally updated and since I did not clean winsxs it will be updatable (but big).
Note that it will be activated too. Maybe I did something wrong, who knows. Or it's a gift of God. At least humbert will experience no more predicament if he wants to use a legit version of windows.

Tonight, I'm going to hold an exceptional conference to talk about the latest book of Boualem Sansal, the impossible peace in Mediterranean.
In an interview, he talked about the rise of Islamism and the problems in this region.

His latest book, The Impossible Peace in the Mediterranean, takes the form of a dialogue between two shores with Boris Cyrulnik. Eight hundred kilometers away, the Algerian writer and the psychiatrist wonder about the roots of the wars in the Mediterranean and the future of the region. Boualem Sansal rings the alarm bell. Defeating Daech will not be enough to wipe out Islamism. It is progressing everywhere: in Muslim countries, but also in Europe. To the point of threatening the equilibrium of the world.
In his new book, a dialogue with Boris Cyrulnik animated by José Lenzini, he warns on the perils that weigh on the Mediterranean.

What is "a zone of high seismicity"?
There is already that, the earth is shaking a lot in the Mediterranean. In this connection, it has just been discovered that subduction in the region is in the process of reversing: the African plate will pass over the European plate. This reversal will cause titanic jolts. There is no way to avoid that. Let us stay on the human threats. They are numerous and all wicks are lit: land-based pollution of the sea, large-scale trafficking (drugs, weapons), migration to Europe versus the quasi-militarized sanctuary of Europe, the chronic instability of the countries of the South , all this added seriously threatens our existence. The Arab Spring, which had been hoped to put the Arab countries on the path of progress, produced the opposite. It has liberated in them and in the European countries where important Muslim communities live an old subduction phenomenon that was constrained by secularism in the north and by the dictatorship in the south. It was the awakening of Islam that quickly swept away all competing societal projects:  pan-Arabism, socialism, liberalism, democracy, North-South partnership. Islam returned to first place in its lands and intends to impose it on the rest of the world. This rebirth, which some of the Springers had wished, has been totally taken over by Islamists who wanted it to be in accordance with the Sharia and imposed by halal means: salafiya, jihad, mass terrorism, takiya, harassment, coup d'état. The seismicity does not stop growing, the damage and the deaths will be the aftermath. As it is, modern societies can withstand great disorders over a limited period of time, but, over time, they become exhausted and end up disintegrating. That's what happens.

The Mediterranean has always seemed to be a space of conflicts?
The conflict is the history and DNA of the Mediterranean. Here were born empires which other emperors have made disappear without mercy; here were born the three monotheistic religions, all having the vocation of hegemony on their lands and, except for Judaism, of proselytism. It is from there that the great conquests of the world have begun,  and they were violent, towards America, Africa, Asia. The Mediterranean has a long experience of conflicts, conquests, exclusiveness. What Mediterranean country is not today in conflict, division or war? To date, we have not succeeded in creating an effective system of crisis prevention and resolution, a kind of Mediterranean UN. The absence of democracy in the countries of the South is an explanation, the dictatorship sows hatred; capitalism in the north is another one, it sows poverty and injustice. Islam, by its ontological rejection of the others (if it can not convert them) and the condemnation of freedom of conscience for its own, creates a situation of closed play which can only be solved by communitisation and, at the end, confrontation. Now, no one really seems to be committed to getting Islam out of its own trap, its inhuman absolutism, around which Islamists stand guard.

What are the roots of this perpetual war?
I believe that the size of the Mediterranean is an explanation. It is an intercontinental sea, it belongs to three fundamentally different worlds (Europe, Africa, Asia) but it is too small, overpopulated, composed of numerous peoples (thousands in Roman times). It could not offer enough resources to live, multiply, and prosper at their own pace. It was necessary to conquer neighbors, which made the birthrate a sort of arms race, a weapon of mass destruction. Algerian President Boumedienne summarized it well: "It is through the belly of our women that we will conquer the West. "
Later, Arafat and recently Erdogan took up this courageous and virile formula.

To this, the weight of religion has to be added in Mediterranean ?
It has always been omnipresent, omnipotent. Reborn Islam brings its thousand and one specificities today, notably speed in execution. What’s more we have to add the importance of the Mediterranean in trade and the safety of local residents. Who holds the Mediterranean dominates the world it serves. The Ottoman Empire understood it in its time. For the mere catch of Algiers, a bastion of its raïs, it took no fewer than six naval expeditions (American, English, German, and two French) over several centuries to liberate and secure the navigation in the Mediterranean.

Is the question of colonization still haunting the region?
Colonization is to be considered from this peculiar angle to the Mediterranean: that of the occupation of land belonging to a monotheistic religion by a country of another monotheistic religion. As long as the occupant respects the customs of the natives and allows them the free practice of their religion (for example, the policy of Rome), colonization is seen in its military aspect and fought as such. As soon as independence is acquired it is relegated in the national history. But when the occupier limits or forbids the free exercise of religion, the war is transformed into a holy war. The crusades began this way, when the Seljuk Turks who had just captured Palestine from the Arabs decided to forbid Christians to go on pilgrimage to the Holy Land. The Crusades lasted for centuries and mobilized the best of Europe. Such wars were not forgotten. In Algeria, colonization is seen as a war against Islam and the Ummah or as a war against people, according to the interests of the moment: to please the religious or to flatter the heroic people. Power rarely speaks of it for what it is, a war of independence, a war of liberation. These two words, independence and liberation, are not politically correct nor religiously halal.

What is the culture of resentment that would undermine the region?
The culture of resentment is part of the Mediterranean identity. It is very early to learn how to recognize its enemy and the different ways of treating it. Resentment is a paying business, a political program. The Muslim Arab world is deeply marked by this disease. The specter of resentment is very broad, it goes beyond the political framework to take root everywhere.

Is not the imminent destruction of Daech a first step towards peace?
The experience of my country has taught me that it is better for the enemy to remain alive; weakened but alive. When the first Algerian jihadists (AIS, Islamic Salvation Army, armed wing of the Islamic Salvation Front) were defeated, the GIA (Islamic armed groups), carried terror and cruelty and, when themselves were destroyed, it was discovered that the emptiness was worse than anything, in a short time the country broke into a thousand pieces under the effect of forces that seemed insignificant. War is also a cement. It has been discovered that those that no one feared, the islamists whom I call the Silencers, had, in the shadow of the war, developed a real power on the society. They sowed the seeds of Salafism and formed networks of all kinds. The power, which had prematurely disarmed itself, thought itself victorious.

Does Erdogan's policy in Turkey particularly worry you?
Erdogan is in a very constructed approach. For a long time, he courted Europe to consolidate its regime and acquire the economic and technological power necessary to support its policy of leadership in the Muslim world. Today, he concentrates all power in his hands, he has broken the army, muzzled the intellectuals, subdued the oligarchs. He only has to proclaim himself caliph (he has already built the palace of the thousand and one nights that goes with the function). He is convinced that most Muslims will recognize him because they want a true caliph, as the sunna demands, not fools like al-Baghdadi.

Tonight, another movie is available on the forum, titled Buffalo '66 and released in 1998.

This movie is a masterpiece and I guess Vasudev, usman or iih already watched it.
It is really original in terms of both plot and style. While it seems unkempt and dangerous looking, the acting turns out to be superb, whatever it is the performance of Ricci or Billy's utterly dysfunctional parents, Mickey Rourke.

Today, some new photos are available on the forum. There will be some comments later.

Today, we are going to leave the stylish setting of the 17th arrondissement to go to the East of Paris.

To go to the 19th on a Friday morning, we're going to use the ring road.

Here we can see a google car. I wish some of them were present in Palestine or in Pakistan. It would allow me to visit Qualqilya and Islamabad from my armchair. But only brave people live in these uncharted territories, not google men.

I'm a bit surprised when I went to the street Corentin Cariou. The facades of the building are clean and the beggars in the street were reminiscent of the north of the 17th arrondissement. However, the next photos are going to confirm that we are not in the 8th or the 16th arrondissement.

A bit further, near porte de la Villette, we can clearly see that a combination of residential concentration and economic marginalization can lead to the unfortunate result of ghettoization

Behind the wall with the tag, I found a kind of makeshift camp for migrants.
Note that the building you can see in the background are in Aubervilliers.
The place was dirty and strewn with refuse. And at first glance, it seems few of them are Eastern Christians or Syrians. Well I don't know, after all maybe there are black Syrians, but in all likelihood, they come from Sudan, Eritrea, Afghanistan...
Actually, a thought flashed in my mind: with the current events in the United States, what if humbert was amongst them? It seems that Bezos or Zuckerberg have not arrived here yet, but with the recent catastrophes resulting global warming, we can not rule out the possibility that people from Texas or California may be among them.
I guess he would have kept me posted anyway.

Here I entered the park of la Villette. Here we can see the Geode.

And here is the City of Sciences.
