Today, a new comic book, titled "In Search of Lost Time" is available on the forum.


In search of Lost time was written by Marcel Proust. According to Graham Greene, "Proust was the greatest novelist of the twentieth century, just as Tolstoy was in the nineteenth".

With its sweeping digressions into the past and reflections on the nature of memory, Proust's oceanic novel In Search of Lost Time looms over twentieth-century literature as one of the greatest, yet most endlessly challenging literary experiences. Influencing writers like Virginia Woolf and James Joyce, and even anticipating Albert Einstein in its philosophical explorations of space and time, In Search of Lost Time is a monumental achievement and a virtual rite of passage for any serious lover of literature.

Personally, I find his most prominent novel “In search of Lost time”, in seven volumes, almost unreadable due to its prolix narrative style.

Note that a financial crack is underway because a new variant of the Covid 19 was discovered in South Africa.

They're responding to the Omicron variant much faster than delta or any others. I don't think it'll go too far.

Tonight, I'm going to present another recipe.
Look at the photo below.



I strolled about for one hour in Sceaux and Fontenay-aux-Roses and this evening was very cold. When it's cold, you want to eat something hot. And for this, there is nothing better than hot potatoes. Those potatoes were boiled then thinly sliced. Some lardons were added, as well as shallot sauce and crème fraîche. A white beer is completing the dish.

Vasudev and aa1234779 have probably noticed that the potatoes were not peeled: I decided to keep the skin since potato skin has more nutrients than the rest of the potato. Potato skin contains vitamins B, vitamin C, iron, calcium, potassium and other nutrients.
My foster grandmother had a farm in Isère near Grenoble and she used to give the potato peelings to the hens when I was young. The hens really liked them. Based on the following assumption: "what is good for the chickens is universally good", that's also why I decided to eat the skin of the potatoes. If Vasudev, humbert or aa1234779 are wondering whether this assumption is a Kantian concept, I must answer in the negative: this is my own assumption.

Today, a new movie, titled Maze Runner, and released in 2014 is available on the forum.
Maybe some of you have already watched this movie. I guess the users of the forum will appreciate this one.
It's probably the best movie of the trilogy.


Storyline:
Thomas is deposited in a community of boys after his memory is erased, soon learning they're all trapped in a maze that will require him to join forces with fellow "runners" for a shot at escape.

What criteria do they use to determine smart cities? Of the cities mentioned I've been to New York and Taipei. Unless things have changed drastically since my visit, I don't see a reason they'd be named. At the time of my visit New York was crowded as hell. The mass of people walk on the sidewalks is a little like predatory ants in a tropical rain forest. The traffic is extremely heavy with yellow taxis as far as the eye can see. Taipei was also very crowded with very bad air pollution. Lots of people use motor scooters to get around the heavy traffic. If I have to travel there I make sure my trip is as short as possible, and of course I wouldn't consider living there.
It's an interesting question and I will endeavour to answer you tonight.
