Les feuilles rousses restent accrochées aux arbres, il y a des roses dans les parcs, des gens aux terrasses des cafés et un soleil bas éclaire délicatement en lumière rasante ces tableaux urbains. La TSF me dit qu&#39;il n&#39;a pas gelé ici depuis près d&#39;un an : le 13 décembre 2013. Elle me dit aussi que précisément Nicolas Hulot est à l&#39;Elysée depuis l&#39;aube pour pousser les trois solutions merveilleuses qu&#39;il a imaginées pour lutter contre le réchauffement climatique : taxer, taxer, taxer.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111; font-size: 10pt;\"> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://grincheux.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341bfb9a53ef01bb07b6a0ca970d-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Parc en automne\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341bfb9a53ef01bb07b6a0ca970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://grincheux.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341bfb9a53ef01bb07b6a0ca970d-800wi\" title=\"Parc en automne\" /></a><br /></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111; font-size: 10pt;\">Je passais près d&#39;un parc, j&#39;y suis entré, je me suis assis pour lire Le Figaro.&#0160; A côté il y avait un clochard. Il me dit :</span><br /><span style=\"color: #111111; font-size: 10pt;\">- &quot;La semaine passée, je possédais encore tout ! Un cuisinier faisait mes repas, ma chambre était nettoyée, mes vêtements étaient lavés, repassés, j&#39;avais un toit au-dessus de ma tête, la télé et l&#39;internet.&quot;</span><br /><span style=\"color: #111111; font-size: 10pt;\">- &quot;Ben mon pauvre vieux, que s&#39;est-il passé ?, lui ai-je demandé.&#0160; Drogue ? Alcool ? Femmes ? Jeu ? &quot; &#0160;</span><br /><span style=\"color: #111111; font-size: 10pt;\">- &quot;Non, non... La mère Taubira m&#39;a sorti de prison !&quot;</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111; font-size: 10pt;\">J&#39;étais encore imprégné de cette étrange rencontre lorsque j&#39;ai repris mon véhicule. Il était vers les midi-une heure. J&#39;ai mis la radio sur Europe1, dont cette tranche est animée par Wendy Bouchard, la journaliste qui m&#39;a écrit de son adresse email Europe1 il y a quelques années pour me dire &quot;je ne souhaite pas longue vie à votre blog&quot;, ça m&#39;excite de l&#39;écouter jacasser de temps à autre pour traquer la connerie et m&#39;en délecter. Hélas elle n&#39;en dit plus beaucoup, je dois le reconnaître. Elle ouvre le micro de cette vénérable station (ne jamais oublier &#39;Salut les copains&#39; et &#39;Pour ceux qui aiment le jazz&#39;) à des gens qui, eux, se chargent de débiter des conneries à sa place. Elle est maligne, la Wendy ! A ce moment, le débat était concentré sur la surpopulation carcérale. Je ne vais pas une nouvelle fois déraper sur la question de savoir qui surpeuple nos prisons, tout le monde le sait, même que Sarko hier a révélé qu&#39;il avait nommé Rachida Dati Garde des Sceaux parce qu&#39;elle avait des parents Maghrébins et que cela avait du sens d&#39;avoir </span><span style=\"color: #111111; font-size: 10pt;\">à la Justice </span><span style=\"color: #111111; font-size: 10pt;\">une femme issue de ce type d&#39;immigration pour parler de la politique pénale.

I say that anger and frustration are just like farts in the wind. Nothing political really matters until people are ready to burn things down. It makes for good dividing lines. The Ferguson mob is a lynch mob, there&#39;s no question about that. If they could get their hands on The Man, they would stone him. That&#39;s good news. It has clarity. It shows that people actually have the courage of their convictions, they are putting their money where their mouths are. We, at long last, have a proper mob.</p>\r\n<p>When this shitstorm began, I <a href=\"http://cobb.typepad.com/cobb/2014/08/obligatory-seriousness-on-the-killing-of-michael-brown.html\" target=\"_self\">wrote the following</a>:</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p>If the death of one man, by accident, or on purpose causes a neighborhood, community, suburb, town, ghetto or general residential district to break down civility, well I suppose you can call that person a hero by definition. His life is valued higher than law and order.&#0160;<a href=\"http://cobb.typepad.com/cobb/2012/09/honor-killing-the-innocence-of-muslims.html\" target=\"_self\">Pinker has words to say on such honor codes</a>. Essentially, they are tribal and inferior to the rule of law. But I&#39;ve been saying this for years, tribal hierarchies are what people use when democratic institutions fail. Nothing at all surprising at that. What is surprising is the extent to which activists and political plotters and strategists try to co-opt the energy of tribalism and convert it back into democratic institutional power. It&#39;s really just swapping one alien committee for another. And of course the big problem is that it doesn&#39;t help the honor code or the tribe.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>A real pitchfork and torches tribe working the hierarchy is ready, and I mean defiantly, militantly ready, to stare down and shoot down the System. That&#39;s what &#39;by any means necessary&#39; implies, but it always turns out in America that the means of choice is sublimation to the New Committee (which seems always ready to grant permanent seats to Jackson or Sharpton). It almost makes you miss Khalid Muhammad. But the bottom line is, misappropriation of James Baldwin&#39;s Fire Next Time notwithstanding, the tribe is going to lose.</p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p>I went on to speculate about how the protest train would rumble on in infinite circles. I was wrong. It actually got militant, and so I am pleasantly surprised for the militants. We can look forward to seeing t-shirts that say &quot;I rioted in Ferguson and all I got was this bullet in the shoulder.&quot; Non-trivial stuff. But that badge of courage will go to a precious few in the Ferguson tribe, while the complimentary abstracted blather of the rest of the Activist Nation continues. Some props have to go to those who dug into their pockets and made this their Million Man March, went to Ferguson, picked up a torch and burned something down.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>I haven&#39;t heard of any cops getting shot yet, but I did hear a story of somebody who, brandishing a pistol, got into a car wreck and shot herself in the head. Her video said of the gun &#39;We&#39;re ready for Ferguson&#39;. She gets an E for effort, and a big fat fail for effectiveness. Then again, that can be said for most tribal mobs no matter how many strip malls and car dealerships they manage to burn to ashes.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>What we need, right about now, is somebody with a rifle and a can of gasoline to stand up and heroically say &quot;Yeah I did it, and I&#39;d do it again&quot; But we are not yet to that moment. Right now it&#39;s all just Anonymous black mobs of rioters and looters and cockeyed shooters and their attending media circus of armchair wannabe vanguardians. I say it should have been Michael Brown&#39;s mother, but apparently she would rather be a media star than a soldier. Understandable, but not heroic.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>When buildings are burning is the moment for true heroes to be born. We have arrived at that moment.

I say that anger and frustration are just like farts in the wind. Nothing political really matters until people are ready to burn things down. It makes for good dividing lines. The Ferguson mob is a lynch mob, there&#39;s no question about that. If they could get their hands on The Man, they would stone him. That&#39;s good news. It has clarity. It shows that people actually have the courage of their convictions, they are putting their money where their mouths are. We, at long last, have a proper mob.</p>\r\n<p>When this shitstorm began, I <a href=\"http://cobb.typepad.com/cobb/2014/08/obligatory-seriousness-on-the-killing-of-michael-brown.html\" target=\"_self\">wrote the following</a>:</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p>If the death of one man, by accident, or on purpose causes a neighborhood, community, suburb, town, ghetto or general residential district to break down civility, well I suppose you can call that person a hero by definition. His life is valued higher than law and order.&#0160;<a href=\"http://cobb.typepad.com/cobb/2012/09/honor-killing-the-innocence-of-muslims.html\" target=\"_self\">Pinker has words to say on such honor codes</a>. Essentially, they are tribal and inferior to the rule of law. But I&#39;ve been saying this for years, tribal hierarchies are what people use when democratic institutions fail. Nothing at all surprising at that. What is surprising is the extent to which activists and political plotters and strategists try to co-opt the energy of tribalism and convert it back into democratic institutional power. It&#39;s really just swapping one alien committee for another. And of course the big problem is that it doesn&#39;t help the honor code or the tribe.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>A real pitchfork and torches tribe working the hierarchy is ready, and I mean defiantly, militantly ready, to stare down and shoot down the System. That&#39;s what &#39;by any means necessary&#39; implies, but it always turns out in America that the means of choice is sublimation to the New Committee (which seems always ready to grant permanent seats to Jackson or Sharpton). It almost makes you miss Khalid Muhammad. But the bottom line is, misappropriation of James Baldwin&#39;s Fire Next Time notwithstanding, the tribe is going to lose.</p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p>I went on to speculate about how the protest train would rumble on in infinite circles. I was wrong. It actually got militant, and so I am pleasantly surprised for the militants. We can look forward to seeing t-shirts that say &quot;I rioted in Ferguson and all I got was this bullet in the shoulder.&quot; Non-trivial stuff. But that badge of courage will go to a precious few in the Ferguson tribe, while the complimentary abstracted blather of the rest of the Activist Nation continues. Some props have to go to those who dug into their pockets and made this their Million Man March, went to Ferguson, picked up a torch and burned something down.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>I haven&#39;t heard of any cops getting shot yet, but I did hear a story of somebody who, brandishing a pistol, got into a car wreck and shot herself in the head. Her video said of the gun &#39;We&#39;re ready for Ferguson&#39;. She gets an E for effort, and a big fat fail for effectiveness. Then again, that can be said for most tribal mobs no matter how many strip malls and car dealerships they manage to burn to ashes.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>What we need, right about now, is somebody with a rifle and a can of gasoline to stand up and heroically say &quot;Yeah I did it, and I&#39;d do it again&quot; But we are not yet to that moment. Right now it&#39;s all just Anonymous black mobs of rioters and looters and cockeyed shooters and their attending media circus of armchair wannabe vanguardians. I say it should have been Michael Brown&#39;s mother, but apparently she would rather be a media star than a soldier. Understandable, but not heroic.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>When buildings are burning is the moment for true heroes to be born. We have arrived at that moment. Will it become heroic or just more mindless destruction?</p>\r\n<p>Now it also must be said that a lot of people are asking if the violence is worth it. The answer is yes. But it wasn&#39;t until buildings were burning that a sufficient amount of violence has been applied to the standard bullshit rhetoric of the Hate America First contingent.

Lately I feel like the question I get asked the most when out and about is: &quot;How&#39;d you get your hair like that?!&quot; Surprisingly, I receive the question from other natural-headed women the most. I&#39;ve noticed that most of the women I&#39;ve met have yet to find the right products for their hair, or a go-to style for their hair.

In other words, I always wash my hair with conditioner only. This helps keep the moisture locked in. Shampoo strips your hair of vital nutrients, and it&#39;s quite difficult to get it back. My natural hair is evidence of what I&#39;m putting in and on my body. For me that means great food, loads of water, and great natural products as well. (Not the hair dye. Nothing about my color is natural, I&#39;m a sucker for light brown.)&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">I&#39;ve noticed that my hair looks so much better in the end if I let it air dry a bit prior to styling. If you have thick hair like mine, this will work wonders for your final style. Also, instead of washing and styling your hair at night, try doing it during the day. You want to let your hair dry out in the twists as much as possible, and it&#39;s hard to do so when you&#39;re sleeping on freshly twisted, damp hair.&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d095e5ef970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"How to Get Natural Hair Two-Strand Twists (click through for tutorial)  \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d095e5ef970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d095e5ef970c-800wi\" title=\"How to Get Natural Hair Two-Strand Twists (click through for tutorial)  \" /></span></a></span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">These are a few of my go-to products, and they are what I will use for this twist-out. &#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">-Wide tooth comb&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">-Hair ties</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">-Curl Mousse</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">-Miss Jessie&#39;s Curly Pudding</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">-Raw coconut oil&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d095e5f5970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"How to Get Natural Hair Two-Strand Twists (click through for tutorial)   \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d095e5f5970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d095e5f5970c-800wi\" title=\"How to Get Natural Hair Two-Strand Twists (click through for tutorial)   \" /></span></a><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d095e608970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"How to Get Natural Hair Two-Strand Twists (click through for tutorial)    \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d095e608970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d095e608970c-800wi\" title=\"How to Get Natural Hair Two-Strand Twists (click through for tutorial)    \" /></span></a>After your hair dries a bit, it&#39;s time to part it into four sections.

Lately I feel like the question I get asked the most when out and about is: &quot;How&#39;d you get your hair like that?!&quot; Surprisingly, I receive the question from other natural-headed women the most. I&#39;ve noticed that most of the women I&#39;ve met have yet to find the right products for their hair, or a go-to style for their hair. Both of these things take time and money, but once you&#39;ve found what&#39;s perfect for you, it&#39;s smooth sailing from there on out!</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Depending on the day, month, and season, my hair will vary in how &quot;big&quot; it will get, and for me that&#39;s okay, most of the time. Thankfully, I can count on my curl pattern to be the same if I follow these exact tips I&#39;ve outlined here for you. More importantly, by following these steps, I&#39;ve turned the dreaded &quot;wash day&quot; into a small nap activity! I can hear the &quot; No way!&quot; from the other side of the screen. Seriously, it&#39;s true! ;)</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Here is how I created my two-strand twist out!</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07b12aad970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"How to Get Natural Hair Two-Strand Twists (click through for tutorial) \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07b12aad970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07b12aad970d-800wi\" title=\"How to Get Natural Hair Two-Strand Twists (click through for tutorial) \" /></span></a></span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">When beginning any real style, I always co-wash my hair. In other words, I always wash my hair with conditioner only. This helps keep the moisture locked in. Shampoo strips your hair of vital nutrients, and it&#39;s quite difficult to get it back. My natural hair is evidence of what I&#39;m putting in and on my body. For me that means great food, loads of water, and great natural products as well. (Not the hair dye. Nothing about my color is natural, I&#39;m a sucker for light brown.)&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">I&#39;ve noticed that my hair looks so much better in the end if I let it air dry a bit prior to styling. If you have thick hair like mine, this will work wonders for your final style. Also, instead of washing and styling your hair at night, try doing it during the day. You want to let your hair dry out in the twists as much as possible, and it&#39;s hard to do so when you&#39;re sleeping on freshly twisted, damp hair.&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d095e5ef970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"How to Get Natural Hair Two-Strand Twists (click through for tutorial)  \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d095e5ef970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d095e5ef970c-800wi\" title=\"How to Get Natural Hair Two-Strand Twists (click through for tutorial)  \" /></span></a></span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">These are a few of my go-to products, and they are what I will use for this twist-out. &#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">-Wide tooth comb&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">-Hair ties</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">-Curl Mousse</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">-Miss Jessie&#39;s Curly Pudding</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">-Raw coconut oil&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d095e5f5970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"How to Get Natural Hair Two-Strand Twists (click through for tutorial)   \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d095e5f5970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d095e5f5970c-800wi\" title=\"How to Get Natural Hair Two-Strand Twists (click through for tutorial)   \" /></span></a><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d095e608970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"How to Get Natural Hair Two-Strand Twists (click through for tutorial)    \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d095e608970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d095e608970c-800wi\" title=\"How to Get Natural Hair Two-Strand Twists (click through for tutorial)    \" /></span></a>After your hair dries a bit, it&#39;s time to part it into four sections.

(E) Auberta, l’oursonne de Fadeta qui avait été découverte à Aubert, dans le Val d’Aran vivait en semi-captivité dans un grand enclos. Les contacts avec les humains avaient été évités au maximum. Elle devait être réintroduite dans les Pyrénées. Cette réintroduction attendue ne se fera pas. Auberta a été retrouvée morte dans son enclos dans la matinée du vendredi 21 novembre 2014 a confirmé Jose Enric Arró, le ministre de l&#39;Agriculture du Conseil Général d&#39;Aran. Une autopsie va être réalisée.</p>\r\n<p>Cette oursonne avait été récupérée, âgée de tois mois, le mercredi 16 avril par des habitants à proximité du village d&#39;Aubert, dans le val d&#39;Aran (versan espagnol des Pyrénées), sur la route entre Vielha et la frontière Française. D&#39;où son nom. Pyros était à la fois le père et le grand père d&#39;Auberta.<br /><br />Selon le journal Segre, il semblerait que l’oursonne se serait ouvert une cicatrice abdominale avec des branches, soit en montant dans un arbre, soit en tombant d’un arbre.&#0160; Cette cicatrice est la suite de la pose d’un émetteur abdominal destiné au suivi scientifique de l’ourse après son relâcher. Auberta aurait dû être relâchée en France, dans le Béarn où ne restent que deux ours mâle. <br /><br />Cette mort regretable d’une jeune ourse relance la polémique sur l’instrumentalisation de l’ours lors des réintroductions. Ces pratiques divisent les écocentristes, favorable au suivi scientifique et les biocentristes plus attentifs que les premiers au respect de l’animal. Et il faut bien l’avouer, cette mort leur donne raison.</p>\r\n<p>Pourquoi est-il nécessaire d’arracher une dent aux ours adultes réintroduits? Uniquement pour connaître leur âge? Cela semble léger...</p>\r\n<p>Pourquoi faut-il anesthésier les ours (une deuxième fois, après la capture) pour insérer un émetteur abdominal alors qu’ils seront déjà équipés d&#39;un collier émetteur/gps/mobile ? <br /><br />L’utilité de ces pratiques destinées “<em>au suivi scientifique</em>” est très limitée au vu des risques encourus qui sont loin d&#39;être nuls, comme cette mort d’une femelle le montre suffisamment. Et ce n&#39;est pas la première, la mort de l&#39;ours Papillon est aussi discutable.</p>\r\n<p>Cette pratique est largement contestée par une franche non négligeable des personnes qui, par ailleurs, sont favorables aux ours. Les scientifiques qui suivent les ours devraient en tenir compte à l&#39;avenir et ne plus instrumentaliser les ours avec des pratiques invasives. La pose d’un collier émetteur suffit largement au suivi scientifique. Mieux assurer le bien être des ours est un facteur de ralliement à la cause de l&#39;ours et des réintroductions.<br /><br />Cette erreur regrettable va radicaliser encore un peu plus la position des défenseurs des animaux, avec raison. Même les plus favorables pourraient revoir leur position. J&#39;en suis.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><iframe allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"315\" src=\"//www.youtube.com/embed/r6zIUbj1CqA\" width=\"560\"></iframe></p>\r\n<p><strong>Lire aussi</strong></p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li><a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/2006/08/secrets_papillo.html\" target=\"_self\">Stephan Carbonnaux: les secrets volés de Papillon</a></li>\r\n<li><span class=\"asset  asset-generic at-xid-6a00d83451957369e201bb07b6a5c9970d img-responsive\"><span class=\"asset  asset-generic at-xid-6a00d83451957369e201bb07b6a5c9970d img-responsive\">Le Département de l’Agriculture et le Conseil Général d’Aran avalisent l’intervention vétérinaire réalisée sur l’ourse Auberta : La Faculté Vétérinaire de la UAB confirme que l’ourse est morte d’un traumatisme (Lire le </span></span><span class=\"asset  asset-generic at-xid-6a00d83451957369e201bb07b6a5c9970d img-responsive\"><a href=\"http://bdm.typepad.com/files/2014-11-26-cp-val-aran-ourse-auberta-mort.pdf\">communiqué de presse)</a></span></li>\r\n</ul>",

(E) Auberta, l’oursonne de Fadeta qui avait été découverte à Aubert, dans le Val d’Aran vivait en semi-captivité dans un grand enclos. Les contacts avec les humains avaient été évités au maximum. Elle devait être réintroduite dans les Pyrénées. Cette réintroduction attendue ne se fera pas. Auberta a été retrouvée morte dans son enclos dans la matinée du vendredi 21 novembre 2014 a confirmé Jose Enric Arró, le ministre de l&#39;Agriculture du Conseil Général d&#39;Aran. Une autopsie va être réalisée.</p>\r\n<p>Cette oursonne avait été récupérée, âgée de tois mois, le mercredi 16 avril par des habitants à proximité du village d&#39;Aubert, dans le val d&#39;Aran (versan espagnol des Pyrénées), sur la route entre Vielha et la frontière Française. D&#39;où son nom. Pyros était à la fois le père et le grand père d&#39;Auberta.<br /><br />Selon le journal Segre, il semblerait que l’oursonne se serait ouvert une cicatrice abdominale avec des branches, soit en montant dans un arbre, soit en tombant d’un arbre.&#0160; Cette cicatrice est la suite de la pose d’un émetteur abdominal destiné au suivi scientifique de l’ourse après son relâcher. Auberta aurait dû être relâchée en France, dans le Béarn où ne restent que deux ours mâle. <br /><br />Cette mort regretable d’une jeune ourse relance la polémique sur l’instrumentalisation de l’ours lors des réintroductions. Ces pratiques divisent les écocentristes, favorable au suivi scientifique et les biocentristes plus attentifs que les premiers au respect de l’animal. Et il faut bien l’avouer, cette mort leur donne raison.</p>\r\n<p>Pourquoi est-il nécessaire d’arracher une dent aux ours adultes réintroduits? Uniquement pour connaître leur âge? Cela semble léger...</p>\r\n<p>Pourquoi faut-il anesthésier les ours (une deuxième fois, après la capture) pour insérer un émetteur abdominal alors qu’ils seront déjà équipés d&#39;un collier émetteur/gps/mobile ? <br /><br />L’utilité de ces pratiques destinées “<em>au suivi scientifique</em>” est très limitée au vu des risques encourus qui sont loin d&#39;être nuls, comme cette mort d’une femelle le montre suffisamment. Et ce n&#39;est pas la première, la mort de l&#39;ours Papillon est aussi discutable.</p>\r\n<p>Cette pratique est largement contestée par une franche non négligeable des personnes qui, par ailleurs, sont favorables aux ours. Les scientifiques qui suivent les ours devraient en tenir compte à l&#39;avenir et ne plus instrumentaliser les ours avec des pratiques invasives. La pose d’un collier émetteur suffit largement au suivi scientifique. Mieux assurer le bien être des ours est un facteur de ralliement à la cause de l&#39;ours et des réintroductions.<br /><br />Cette erreur regrettable va radicaliser encore un peu plus la position des défenseurs des animaux, avec raison. Même les plus favorables pourraient revoir leur position. J&#39;en suis.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><iframe allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"315\" src=\"//www.youtube.com/embed/r6zIUbj1CqA\" width=\"560\"></iframe></p>\r\n<p><strong>Lire aussi</strong></p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li><a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/2006/08/secrets_papillo.html\" target=\"_self\">Stephan Carbonnaux: les secrets volés de Papillon</a></li>\r\n<li><span class=\"asset  asset-generic at-xid-6a00d83451957369e201bb07b6a5c9970d img-responsive\"><span class=\"asset  asset-generic at-xid-6a00d83451957369e201bb07b6a5c9970d img-responsive\">Le Département de l’Agriculture et le Conseil Général d’Aran avalisent l’intervention vétérinaire réalisée sur l’ourse Auberta : La Faculté Vétérinaire de la UAB confirme que l’ourse est morte d’un traumatisme (Lire le </span></span><span class=\"asset  asset-generic at-xid-6a00d83451957369e201bb07b6a5c9970d img-responsive\"><a href=\"http://bdm.typepad.com/files/2014-11-26-cp-val-aran-ourse-auberta-mort.pdf\">communiqué de presse)</a></span></li>\r\n</ul>",

Seeing as nearly a year has passed since we last communicated, let me refresh you on some things, and bring up some new points:</p>\r\n<p>Yes, we are one of those retailers opening at a stupid ass hour on Black Thursday. You may be super excited about it, but rest assured, we employees are not. Some of us are coming in two hours prior to open, to get last minute shit ready. Yes, we have to cut Thanksgiving dinner with our families short because for some of us, that&#39;s 4pm. As in we haven&#39;t even digested what little bit of turkey dinner we were able to inhale before having to go take a nap for our 9+ hour shift.</p>\r\n<p>Oh, you didn&#39;t take a nap, and have been standing in line all day? Well, fuck off, because YOU get to go home and go to bed at a reasonable hour. I still have to be here after you leave the store.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.retailhellunderground.com/.a/6a00e54f10a098883401b8d09b5e27970c-pi\" style=\"float: right;\"><img alt=\"Carolanne argh 3\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e54f10a098883401b8d09b5e27970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.retailhellunderground.com/.a/6a00e54f10a098883401b8d09b5e27970c-320wi\" style=\"margin: 0px 0px 5px 5px;\" title=\"Carolanne argh 3\" /></a>Line holders. While you might think it&#39;s the greatest idea ever to bring someone along who will save your spot in the crazy long line while you shop, WE HATE YOU.</p>\r\n<p>I have lost count over the years of how many people complain about how unfair it is that they&#39;ve been waiting in line, and then you come waltzing up with two carts overflowing, and cut in front of them because &quot;Oh, she was saving my spot.&quot; I hate not being able to tell you to get your sorry ass to the back of the line.</p>\r\n<p>Speaking of the line, DON&#39;T COMPLAIN ABOUT IT, IT&#39;S FUCKING BLACK FRIDAY. What the hell did you expect, to have the whole damn store to yourself?! I have fourteen registers running, fourteen people in JUST to bag your stuff, NONE of my registers are ever unmanned, I&#39;ve got people in to cover breaks. We&#39;re going as fast as humanly possible.</p>\r\n<p>Yes, the store is trashed. Again, it&#39;s BLACK THURSDAY (or any random weekend before Christmas). If YOU guys wouldn&#39;t make such a mess, we would be able to recover much more efficiently.</p>\r\n<p>Don&#39;t yell at my cashiers. <em><strong>For any reason</strong></em>. Especially if you&#39;re too lazy to read a sign in it&#39;s entirety. It&#39;s not their fault that you picked up a king sized sheet set, expecting it to be $9.99, when that price is in actuality for the TWIN size, but since that price is in a larger font then the rest, you just assume that&#39;s the price for all of the sheets. My cashiers are anything but lazy.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.retailhellunderground.com/.a/6a00e54f10a098883401bb07b67a9a970d-pi\" style=\"float: left;\"><img alt=\"Freddy frustration 2\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e54f10a098883401bb07b67a9a970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.retailhellunderground.com/.a/6a00e54f10a098883401bb07b67a9a970d-320wi\" style=\"margin: 0px 5px 5px 0px;\" title=\"Freddy frustration 2\" /></a>For the love of all that is good and covered in chocolate, DO NOT leave your cart unattended for more than five minutes. If we find it, we will watch it for a few minutes. If no one comes to claim it in that time, we will think it abandoned, and re-shop everything that is in there. If you come back thirty minutes later and it&#39;s gone, don&#39;t come screaming to me. It&#39;s your own fault.</p>\r\n<p>Boxes. We hand out boxes as a courtesy. You get one per clothing item you are buying, IF you ask. Don&#39;t be greedy and ask for ten boxes for stuff you have at home. Don&#39;t be greedy and ask for boxes if you are buying a vacuum cleaner or a Barbie car. We are allotted only so many cases of boxes. Once they&#39;re gone, it&#39;s a hassle trying to get more before the end of December.</p>\r\n<p>Closing times. Please respect them. Don&#39;t continue to shop after you hear the closing announcement. It&#39;s rude and selfish. In conjunction, don&#39;t pick out over $1,000 worth of merchandise, and wait until we close to cash out. You might think that&#39;s perfectly acceptable, but most of my cashiers are either collage students, or people who have a full time day job. They&#39;re exhausted by the time we close, and you keeping them past the end of their shift is selfish.</p>\r\n<p>In order to save time at the register, have all of your coupons and/or methods of payment ready. I don&#39;t want to stand around waiting for you to dig through your purse for your coupon or credit card. Paying by check? Start filling it out while you&#39;re waiting in line. Have your drivers license ready. Those actions will save SO much time at the registers.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.retailhellunderground.com/.a/6a00e54f10a098883401b7c71163c1970b-pi\" style=\"float: right;\"><img alt=\"Jason Money\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e54f10a098883401b7c71163c1970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.retailhellunderground.com/.a/6a00e54f10a098883401b7c71163c1970b-320wi\" style=\"margin: 0px 0px 5px 5px;\" title=\"Jason Money\" /></a>If, while in line, you decide against an item you have picked out, don&#39;t just dump it anywhere. Wait until you get to the cashier, and hand it over, politely saying you&#39;ve changed your mind. Don&#39;t throw it at them.</p>\r\n<p>If you need to get my attention, please do so politely. A simple &quot;Excuse me&quot; or &quot;Pardon me&quot; not only gets my attention better, it&#39;s also courteous, respectful, and shows you have nice manners. A &quot;Thank you&quot; is also appreciated.</p>\r\n<p>Please do not have your cell phone glued to your ear while at the register. If you insist on talking on it, don&#39;t get all pissy when we wait to ask you a question. At least *we* are polite, and won&#39;t interrupt your big important phone call.</p>\r\n<p>If you are returning something to a store, please don&#39;t throw the bag of merchandise on the counter, and expect the associate to take the stuff out. It&#39;s rude. Also, please have your receipt or credit card ready. We hate having to wait for you to dig it out of your purse/pocket/wallet (psst, so do the other people waiting behind you!)</p>\r\n<p>That $300 camera that is on doorbuster pricing of $29.99? Expect that it will be sold out in minutes after we unlock the doors, no matter how many we have in stock. Don&#39;t get all bitchy that we&#39;re out of them at 10 pm when you decided to bring your happy self to the store. We opened at 6pm. And no, no rainchecks. And also no, I will not be substituting the $500 camera for the same price. I *may* possibly give you the same discount percentage though.</p>\r\n<p>Please remember. We will be working ourselves to the ground between now and the first of the year. While that will not be an excuse for any unprofessional attitude or actions you may feel you have encountered, we&#39;re only human, and can burn out.</p>\r\n<p>We have NOTHING to do with the pricing/inventory levels/policies. We just follow orders. You have a problem with it? Take it up with corporate, and enjoy the gift card you&#39;ll inevitably get because you complained.</p>\r\n<p>Some of these points are also encouraged all year long. I may have missed a few, but a little common courtesy, a little respect and a little common sense will go a long way to making your holiday shopping much more pleasant. Not to mention the state of our mental health.</p>\r\n<p>Sincerely,</p>\r\n<p>The Retail Employees</p>\r\n<p>--Jayne</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>",

Actuellement, des guerres relancent des campagnes pour un refus délibéré d’achat de produits issus de certains pays...</p>\r\n<p>Ces mouvements ne sont pas nouveaux. <strong>Une (non)consommation engagée est un formidable outil de pression politique et économique.</strong> <br /><br />Dans le cas des conflits sociaux ou environnementaux, les responsables donnent bien souvent une priorité écrasante aux valeurs économiques, à l’utilité financière, à la rentabilité immédiate.</p>\r\n<p><strong>C’est en posant des actes aux conséquences économiques importantes que les consommateurs peuvent montrer qu’ils ne sont pas d’accord avec des pratiques, des politiques ou des comportements non équitables.</strong></p>\r\n<h2><strong>La crise pastorale</strong></h2>\r\n<p>Le pastoralisme français est en crise pour de multiples raisons que les syndicats agricoles refusent de voir et continuent à <strong>sous estimer</strong> :</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>vieillissement de la population (58% des éleveurs ont plus de 50 ans),</li>\r\n<li>baisse de la consommation de viande d&#39;agneau (- 40% en 20 ans),</li>\r\n<li>concurrence internationale (la France posséde le prix au kilo le plus élevé de tous les pays producteurs),</li>\r\n<li>mortalité des agneaux (16% en moyenne),</li>\r\n<li>attaques de mouches tueuses (mortalité de 0,8 % suite aux lésions provoquées par le développement des asticots),</li>\r\n<li>crises sanitaires&#0160; (65.000 bovins et 32.000 petits ruminants morts depuis le début de l’épizootie de fièvre catarrhale (2007/2008), auxquels s’ajoutent des pertes indirectes : diminution de la production de lait, problèmes de fertilité et d’avortement, pertes économiques liées aux restrictions de circulation et d’échanges d’animaux).</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p>Parfois les politiques de ces syndicats sont mêmes à l’origine des problèmes des filières. <br /><br /><strong>La viabilité du pastoralisme dépend uniquement de «&#0160;</strong><em><strong>l&#39;ajustement des politiques publiques</strong></em><strong>&#0160;».</strong> En médecine, on parlerait de coma sous respirateur artificiel.<br /><br />En zone pastorale, le total des aides dépasse en moyenne de près de 20.000 € la valeur économique de la production ovine pour chaque exploitation ! Soit 57 % du produit brut de l’exploitation (contre 25 et 35 % pour les autres zones), avec un ratio aides /produit des ventes ovines qui atteint 158%.&#0160; Malgré ces aides massives, supiérieures à n&#39;importe celles de tous les autres secteurs agricoles, le revenu des éleveurs, lui, est la plupart du temps orienté à la baisse.<br /><br />Ce sont ainsi 48,5 millions d&#39;euros, dont 13,7 millions d‘euros des budgets de l’État, qui ont été consacrés au pastoralisme sur la période 2007-2013 (source). Ces crédits spécifiques au pastoralisme local s’ajoutent aux subventions agricoles «&#0160;<em>classiques</em>&#0160;» à destination des élevages, prévues principalement par la PAC.<br /><br />Par contre, les pertes liées aux grands prédateurs sont <strong>surestimées</strong> par rapport à leur poids réel dans la crise du pastoralisme, parce qu’elles s’accompagnent d’un déficit en reconnaissance de la part des français. L’image romantique du berger protégant ses brebis en a pris un coup. Les éleveurs manifestent, communiquent, râlent contre ces français, qui ne les comprennent plus, ne les soutiennent plus, atisant un prétendu conflit ruraux/citadins.</p>\r\n<p>Les animaux sauvages (ours, loups, lynx) sont devenus à la fois des boucs-émissaires et une source de revenus indispensables.&#0160; La tendance est à l’extention de la liste des “<em>nuisibles</em>” (vautours, marmottes en montagne, et ailleurs : phoques, flamants roses, requins…).

La haine de la nature est rentable.</p>\r\n<h2><strong>Le cas du vautour</strong></h2>\r\n<p>Le vautour en est un parfait exemple. Si les éleveurs arrivent à obtenir des dédommagements pour de prétendues “<em>attaques</em>” de vautours devenus “<em>prédateurs</em>” par simple opportunisme pour cause de manque de soins, de prévoyance et de surveillance humaine (et non par évolution spontanée), toutes les bêtes mal soignées, malades, abandonnées à leur sort, non surveillées lors des mises-bas parfois difficiles seront susceptibles d’avoir été “<em>attaquées</em>” quelque soit leur état de santé général avant la <em>“curée</em>” des animaux &quot;<em>déviants&quot;.</em> <br /><br />Selon un représentant des éleveurs témoignant en 2003 sous serment devant la commission d’enquête parlementaire sur le pastoralisme, la mortalité en estive est estimée de&#0160;3 à 5% des troupeaux. Dans les Pyrénées, cela permettrait de “<em>rentabiliser</em>” aux frais du contribuable de 18.000 à 30.000 pertes sèches par été sur les 600.000 brebis présentes en montagne, au lieu de payer pour l’équarissage des cadavres. Le bénéfice éventuel est colossal ; d’où la campagne médiatique anti-vautours qui nie les évidences scientifiques (même de la part des ministres concernés : écologie et agriculture) pourtant répétées officiellement par vétérinaires et préfêts. Des éleveurs ont sont même arrivés à filmer des brebis en difficultés, malades ou blessées, parfois condamnées pour apporter des “<em>preuves</em>” au lieu de protéger, de rentrer, de soigner ou d’euthanasier leurs bêtes en grandes difficultés ou au bout de leur vie. <br /><br />L’objectif est d’arriver à ce que le vautour paie, vite, fort et bien, tout en se débarassant de lui, comme l’IPHB de Jean Lassalle s’est débarassé de l’ours en Béarn tout en détournant la manne de l’ours en faveur du pastoralisme. Il n’y a plus qu’un ours en Béarn, depuis des années, et le pastoralisme ne s’en porte pas mieux, l&#39;IPHB non plus, et c&#39;est justice !</p>\r\n<h2><strong>Le cas du loup</strong></h2>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>En zone à prédateurs, le pastoralisme bénéfice d’une manne économique importante générant emplois et meilleure rentabilité. Cette participation des français aux aides de l’Etat font que ces zones s’en sortent économiquement bien mieux (moins mal) que les zones sans prédateurs :<br /> - 9% de brebis entre 1990 et 2011 en région PACA, -24% en Midi-Pyrénées, pour&#0160; -59% en limousin, -58% en Charente-poitou, -62% en région centre, trois régions sans grands prédateurs !</li>\r\n<li>En Espagne, un scandale éclate en ce moment : 35% des dégâts de loups viennent de faire l’objet d’un double dédommagement : par l’Etat d’une part et par une compagnie d’assurance d’autre part (compagnie financée par l’Etat également). Les éleveurs &quot;<em>ne savaient pas que c&#39;était interdit...</em>&quot; Qu’en est-il en France? Sommes nous certains que ces pratiques n’existent pas ? Qui contrôle ?</li>\r\n<li>En France, <a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/2014/06/loup-dans-93-pourcents-des-degats-le-doute-beneficie-a-l-eleveur.htmlhttp://www.buvettedesalpages.be/2014/06/loup-dans-93-pourcents-des-degats-le-doute-beneficie-a-l-eleveur.html\" target=\"_self\">93 % des dégâts<sub>1</sub></a> “<em>grands canidés indéterminés</em>” sont attribués au loup avec bénéfice du doute car dans l&#39;impossibilité scientifique de différencier un dégât de grand canidé domestique, d&#39;un dégât de Loup.&#0160;(Il y a 11 millions de chiens en France pour 300 loups, selon la dernière estimation ONCFS de 2014).</li>\r\n<li>Les éleveurs n’ont visiblement pas intérêt à ce que la cours des comptes réalise une étude plus exhaustive du sujet&#0160;: 60% des indemnisations sont dans la balance! La Cour des Comptes aborde la question du loup de manière succincte comme en témoigne cet <a href=\"http://www.ccomptes.fr/fr/CC/documents/Syntheses/Synthese-RPA-2010.pdf\" target=\"_blank\">extrait de la synthèse annuelle 2010</a>. (<em>En tout état de cause, ces sondages laissent apparaître en fin d’exercice des taux importants de paiements injustifiés qui, après extrapolation aux paiements non contrôlés, permettait d’envisager par exemple <strong>pour la seule année 2006 une somme de 60 M€ payée à tort</strong>. La complexité des dispositifs et la priorité accordée à la rapidité des paiements expliquent largement ces mauvais résultats</em>) . &#0160;</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<h2><strong>Le cas de l’Ours</strong></h2>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>En France une AOC ovin viande pyrénéenne (en pays Toy) prévoit dans sa charte la divagation sans protection ni berger, en zone à prédateurs, sous peine d’exclusion. Les responsables transforment ces pratiques récentes (à peine plus de 50 ans) en “tradition immémoriale” alors que plus de 200 cabanes de berger sont présentes sur les estives, abandonnées depuis la disparition de l’ours de cette zone.</li>\r\n<li>Dans bien des cas, des lots de vielles brebis taries sont <em>laissés</em> à la disposition des plantigrades : la prédation est alors le seul moyen de les “<em>rentabiliser</em>”.</li>\r\n<li>Les escroqueries sont nombreuses : tentatives de faire passer des maladies, ou le manque de soins pour de la prédation (cas des “<em>veaux d’Aston</em>”, du dérochement de l’Estive de Pouilh, “<em>attaques</em>” de vautours démenties (pas dans la presse) par les constats vétérinaires…)</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<h2><strong>Le refus de changer les pratiques et de cohabiter</strong></h2>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>Malgré les politiques françaises et européennes d’aide au pastoralisme qui ne sufisent pas à endiguer la diminution des effectifs ovins et humains,</li>\r\n<li>malgré les sondages et les demandes des français pour une cohabitation et un partage des espaces,</li>\r\n<li>malgré la perte d’image de marque d’un monde pastoral qui cherche à redorer son blason à grand coup de peinture verte,</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p>les éleveurs continuent à refuser la cohabitation.</p>\r\n<p>Depuis des années, les associations environnementales prônent à la fois la cohabitation avec les prédateurs et un soutien puissant au pastoralisme. Avec quel résultat, quelle amélioration ?</p>\r\n<h2><strong>L’abandon de l’Etat</strong></h2>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>L’Etat (de gauche comme de droite), sous la pression des lobbies agricoles, cynégétiques, industriels, se désengage de la protection de la nature, y compris dans les zones théoriquement protégées comme les parcs nationaux ou pour les espèces protégées par des lois et les engagements internationaux,</li>\r\n<li>L’Etat ignore les travaux scientifiques qu’il a lui même commandé pour l’orienter dans les choix politiques pour la sauvegarde des espèces menacées, les prédateurs ne votent pas,</li>\r\n<li>L’Etat cache ses incohérences et son manque de courage politique derrière des prétextes fallacieux (sécherasse en Béarn dans le cas de l’ours, nombre de loups recensés dépassant un nombre prétendument fixé (quand, par qui) dans celui du loup)</li>\r\n<li>L’Etat essaie d’éviter les plaintes déposées à l’Europe (que deviennent-elles?) tout en vidant de sa substance la prétendue <em>Stratégie Nationale (ou pyrénéenne) de Valorisation de la Biodiversité</em></li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<h2><strong>Un appel à la responsabilisation des consommateurs</strong></h2>\r\n<p>Je lance un appel pour que les associations environnementales françaises, qu’elles soient écocentriques, biocentriques ou autres, prennent ensembles des “engagements politiques marchands” immédiats et puissants. <br /><br />J&#39;appèle les consommateurs <strong>à ne plus consommer les produits ou services</strong> issus des acteurs* qui refusent :</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>le partage des territoires,</li>\r\n<li>le respect des législations,</li>\r\n<li>la légitimité de la présence de populations d’animaux sauvages libres et viables dans la nature,</li>\r\n<li>la nécessité d’une agriculture propre et juste, économe en ressources, limitées dans ses pratiques polluantes,</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p>leur suggérant, dans le respect de leur liberté, de s&#39;orienter vers d&#39;autres fournisseurs, productions, services ou consommations responsables.</p>\r\n<p>En bref, plus une côtelette, plus un gigot de mouton français dans nos frigos, plus de fromages afinés au sang des prédateurs ou des vautours dans nos assiettes, plus de nuitée en chambres d’hôtes ou gîtes “<em>à la ferme”&#0160;</em> plus de tourisme et de dépenses dans les communes aux routes bariolées d’appels à la haine et à la destruction d’espèces protégées.</p>\r\n<p>“<em>Il suffirait que les gens arrêtent d’en acheter pour que ça ne se vende pas</em>” (Coluche).<br /><br /><strong>Mettons le doigt là où ça fait mal, au portefeuille des acteurs irresponsables et extrémistes.</strong></p>\r\n<p>J’appèle, modestement, les associations à s&#39;associer à cette action.<br /><br /><strong>Lire aussi </strong></p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>Septembre 2013 : <a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/2013/09/boycott.html%20\" target=\"_self\">Boycott: Mettre le doigt là où ça fait mal</a>.

Ségolène Royal avoue que 93 % des indemnisations sont effectuées au bénéfice du doute, ce qui confirme ce point essentiel : les services de l&#39;ONCFS doivent prouver la non-culpabilité du loup pour le dédouaner, et non pas sa culpabilité pour l&#39;accuser.</p>\r\n<p>Pour Marc Laffont : ce renversement dans la charge de la preuve, couplé à ce que le territoire d&#39;un animal très mobile comme le loup soit désormais assez vaste (dans les Alpes), <strong>rend complètement inutile la souscription d&#39;une couteuse assurance contre les chiens errants.</strong> Et évidemment contre le loup, si cela était possible. Le bénéfice du doute suffit.</p>",

La Cour des Comptes aborde la question du loup de manière succincte comme en témoigne cet <a href=\"http://www.ccomptes.fr/fr/CC/documents/Syntheses/Synthese-RPA-2010.pdf\" target=\"_blank\">extrait de la synthèse annuelle 2010</a>. (<em>En tout état de cause, ces sondages laissent apparaître en fin d’exercice des taux importants de paiements injustifiés qui, après extrapolation aux paiements non contrôlés, permettait d’envisager par exemple <strong>pour la seule année 2006 une somme de 60 M€ payée à tort</strong>. La complexité des dispositifs et la priorité accordée à la rapidité des paiements expliquent largement ces mauvais résultats</em>) . &#0160;</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<h2><strong>Le cas de l’Ours</strong></h2>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>En France une AOC ovin viande pyrénéenne (en pays Toy) prévoit dans sa charte la divagation sans protection ni berger, en zone à prédateurs, sous peine d’exclusion. Les responsables transforment ces pratiques récentes (à peine plus de 50 ans) en “tradition immémoriale” alors que plus de 200 cabanes de berger sont présentes sur les estives, abandonnées depuis la disparition de l’ours de cette zone.</li>\r\n<li>Dans bien des cas, des lots de vielles brebis taries sont <em>laissés</em> à la disposition des plantigrades : la prédation est alors le seul moyen de les “<em>rentabiliser</em>”.</li>\r\n<li>Les escroqueries sont nombreuses : tentatives de faire passer des maladies, ou le manque de soins pour de la prédation (cas des “<em>veaux d’Aston</em>”, du dérochement de l’Estive de Pouilh, “<em>attaques</em>” de vautours démenties (pas dans la presse) par les constats vétérinaires…)</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<h2><strong>Le refus de changer les pratiques et de cohabiter</strong></h2>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>Malgré les politiques françaises et européennes d’aide au pastoralisme qui ne sufisent pas à endiguer la diminution des effectifs ovins et humains,</li>\r\n<li>malgré les sondages et les demandes des français pour une cohabitation et un partage des espaces,</li>\r\n<li>malgré la perte d’image de marque d’un monde pastoral qui cherche à redorer son blason à grand coup de peinture verte,</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p>les éleveurs continuent à refuser la cohabitation.</p>\r\n<p>Depuis des années, les associations environnementales prônent à la fois la cohabitation avec les prédateurs et un soutien puissant au pastoralisme. Avec quel résultat, quelle amélioration ?</p>\r\n<h2><strong>L’abandon de l’Etat</strong></h2>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>L’Etat (de gauche comme de droite), sous la pression des lobbies agricoles, cynégétiques, industriels, se désengage de la protection de la nature, y compris dans les zones théoriquement protégées comme les parcs nationaux ou pour les espèces protégées par des lois et les engagements internationaux,</li>\r\n<li>L’Etat ignore les travaux scientifiques qu’il a lui même commandé pour l’orienter dans les choix politiques pour la sauvegarde des espèces menacées, les prédateurs ne votent pas,</li>\r\n<li>L’Etat cache ses incohérences et son manque de courage politique derrière des prétextes fallacieux (sécherasse en Béarn dans le cas de l’ours, nombre de loups recensés dépassant un nombre prétendument fixé (quand, par qui) dans celui du loup)</li>\r\n<li>L’Etat essaie d’éviter les plaintes déposées à l’Europe (que deviennent-elles?) tout en vidant de sa substance la prétendue <em>Stratégie Nationale (ou pyrénéenne) de Valorisation de la Biodiversité</em></li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<h2><strong>Un appel à la responsabilisation des consommateurs</strong></h2>\r\n<p>Je lance un appel pour que les associations environnementales françaises, qu’elles soient écocentriques, biocentriques ou autres, prennent ensembles des “engagements politiques marchands” immédiats et puissants. <br /><br />J&#39;appèle les consommateurs <strong>à ne plus consommer les produits ou services</strong> issus des acteurs* qui refusent :</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>le partage des territoires,</li>\r\n<li>le respect des législations,</li>\r\n<li>la légitimité de la présence de populations d’animaux sauvages libres et viables dans la nature,</li>\r\n<li>la nécessité d’une agriculture propre et juste, économe en ressources, limitées dans ses pratiques polluantes,</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p>leur suggérant, dans le respect de leur liberté, de s&#39;orienter vers d&#39;autres fournisseurs, productions, services ou consommations responsables.</p>\r\n<p>En bref, plus une côtelette, plus un gigot de mouton français dans nos frigos, plus de fromages afinés au sang des prédateurs ou des vautours dans nos assiettes, plus de nuitée en chambres d’hôtes ou gîtes “<em>à la ferme”&#0160;</em> plus de tourisme et de dépenses dans les communes aux routes bariolées d’appels à la haine et à la destruction d’espèces protégées.</p>\r\n<p>“<em>Il suffirait que les gens arrêtent d’en acheter pour que ça ne se vende pas</em>” (Coluche).<br /><br /><strong>Mettons le doigt là où ça fait mal, au portefeuille des acteurs irresponsables et extrémistes.</strong></p>\r\n<p>J’appèle, modestement, les associations à s&#39;associer à cette action.<br /><br /><strong>Lire aussi </strong></p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>Septembre 2013 : <a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/2013/09/boycott.html%20\" target=\"_self\">Boycott: Mettre le doigt là où ça fait mal</a>.

Lire la question écrite de M. <a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/povinelli-roland/\" target=\"_self\" title=\"Roland Povinelli\">Roland Povinelli</a> et la réponse de la ministre de l&#39;écologie, plus d&#39;un an après. Ségolène Royal avoue que 93 % des indemnisations sont effectuées au bénéfice du doute, ce qui confirme ce point essentiel : les services de l&#39;ONCFS doivent prouver la non-culpabilité du loup pour le dédouaner, et non pas sa culpabilité pour l&#39;accuser.</p>\r\n<p>Pour Marc Laffont : ce renversement dans la charge de la preuve, couplé à ce que le territoire d&#39;un animal très mobile comme le loup soit désormais assez vaste (dans les Alpes), <strong>rend complètement inutile la souscription d&#39;une couteuse assurance contre les chiens errants.</strong> Et évidemment contre le loup, si cela était possible. Le bénéfice du doute suffit.</p>",

[Risa malvada con efecto eco] Tras un par de años de ausencia, se convoca un nuevo Blogs &amp; Gofio. Blogueros, tuiteros, y usuarios de internet de todo tipo están invitados a la reunión informal que celebraremos el próximo <strong>viernes 28 de noviembre</strong> de 2014 en Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. El lugar será el habitual en las últimas convocatorias en la isla redonda, el <strong>restaurante <a href=\"https://www.facebook.com/labarberia.devegueta\" target=\"_self\">La Barbería</a></strong> de Vegueta y la hora, las 21:00.&#0160;Como habrá que hacer reserva, por favor, confirma tu asistencia escribiendo un comentario en esta entrada (o <a href=\"https://www.facebook.com/events/732095133535450/732099636868333/\" target=\"_self\">en Facebook</a>)&#0160;a más tardar el viernes a las 12:00.</p>\r\n<p>Reusando las <strong>preguntas y respuestas</strong> habituales de nuestros compañeros chicharreros:</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>¿Quién puede asistir?&#0160;-&gt; Cualquiera, tanto si escribes blogs, como si los lees, incluso si no sabes lo que es un blog y quieres pasar un buen rato.</li>\r\n<li>¿Qué es un Blog &amp; Gofio?&#0160;-&gt; Una reunión de gente relacionada con los blogs (o no) que se reúne de vez en cuando para verse las caras y echarse unas risas.</li>\r\n<li>¿Eso es un rollo de frikis?&#0160;-&gt; No, la gente que asiste es totalmente normal, o al menos eso cree.</li>\r\n<li>Quiero ir, pero me da rollo porque no conozco a nadie&#0160;-&gt; No pasa nada, la curva de progreso en la amistad durante los blogs &amp; gofio es, sin exagerar, un millón de veces mayor que en otros ámbitos.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p>¡Nos vemos el viernes!</p>\r\n<p>PD: Para el cartel se ha usado la imagen <a href=\"http://vermyn-n.deviantart.com/art/Zombie-Army-165259543\" target=\"_self\">Zomby Army</a>, de&#0160;Vermyn-N (Creative Commons, Atribución).</p>",

[Risa malvada con efecto eco] Tras un par de años de ausencia, se convoca un nuevo Blogs &amp; Gofio. Blogueros, tuiteros, y usuarios de internet de todo tipo están invitados a la reunión informal que celebraremos el próximo <strong>viernes 28 de noviembre</strong> de 2014 en Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. El lugar será el habitual en las últimas convocatorias en la isla redonda, el <strong>restaurante <a href=\"https://www.facebook.com/labarberia.devegueta\" target=\"_self\">La Barbería</a></strong> de Vegueta y la hora, las 21:00.&#0160;Como habrá que hacer reserva, por favor, confirma tu asistencia escribiendo un comentario en esta entrada (o <a href=\"https://www.facebook.com/events/732095133535450/732099636868333/\" target=\"_self\">en Facebook</a>)&#0160;a más tardar el viernes a las 12:00.</p>\r\n<p>Reusando las <strong>preguntas y respuestas</strong> habituales de nuestros compañeros chicharreros:</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>¿Quién puede asistir?&#0160;-&gt; Cualquiera, tanto si escribes blogs, como si los lees, incluso si no sabes lo que es un blog y quieres pasar un buen rato.</li>\r\n<li>¿Qué es un Blog &amp; Gofio?&#0160;-&gt; Una reunión de gente relacionada con los blogs (o no) que se reúne de vez en cuando para verse las caras y echarse unas risas.</li>\r\n<li>¿Eso es un rollo de frikis?&#0160;-&gt; No, la gente que asiste es totalmente normal, o al menos eso cree.</li>\r\n<li>Quiero ir, pero me da rollo porque no conozco a nadie&#0160;-&gt; No pasa nada, la curva de progreso en la amistad durante los blogs &amp; gofio es, sin exagerar, un millón de veces mayor que en otros ámbitos.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p>¡Nos vemos el viernes!</p>\r\n<p>PD: Para el cartel se ha usado la imagen <a href=\"http://vermyn-n.deviantart.com/art/Zombie-Army-165259543\" target=\"_self\">Zomby Army</a>, de&#0160;Vermyn-N (Creative Commons, Atribución).</p>",

As long as we have faith in our own cause and an unconquerable will to win, victory will not be denied us.&quot; - Winston Churchill</p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">VANCOUVER – On the back of the each game plan distributed to Tiger-Cats players, defensive co-ordinator Orlondo Steinauer includes a quote. Ahead of Sunday&#39;s Grey Cup matchup with the Calgary Stampeders, he chose the above offering from Churchill, a frequent source of inspiration.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">But it could have read: &quot;Stop Jon Cornish.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">The Stamps running back led the CFL in rushing this season with 1,082 yards despite playing in just nine games. Calgary finished with a 15-3 record and was 8-1 in games Cornish played in, the only blemish coming in a meaningless game against Winnipeg near the end of the season.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">In last week&#39;s West final, the Eskimos kept Cornish more or less contained on the ground - he had just 54 yards rushing - but he exploded for a 78-yard touchdown off a shovel pass and scored another TD on the ground as Calgary won handily 43-18.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">The Ticats certainly know what they&#39;re up against, said middle linebacker Taylor Reed.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;We have to stop the run. We&#39;ve been doing a good job with it but everything that&#39;s happened before this game doesn&#39;t matter - either we stop the run or we don&#39;t, &quot; Reed said.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Hamilton had the No. 1 ranked rush defence during the CFL season, giving up a measly 76.8 yards per game, but they weren&#39;t able to contain the Stampeders rushing attack in two regular season games as they allowed 111 and 136 yards in a pair of losses. The good news? The last of those games was played in August, before the Ticat defence was fully formed.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">The bad news? Cornish didn&#39;t play in either one.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;We just need to get him down - any tackle is a good tackle. Linebackers like to square up running backs and make it look good, &quot; Reed said.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;It does not need to make the highlights as long as we are on the stage when the confetti is dropping.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">The updated Hamilton defence seems to be well constructed to handle the challenge.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Defensive tackles Ted Laurent and Bryan Hall have been stout the second half of the season, while ends Justin Hickman and Eric Norwood are assignment sound. The linebackers are an athletic, physical group led by team tackle leader Simoni Lawrence.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">In the secondary, the Ticats have physical halfbacks in Brandon Stewart and Rico Murray, while safety Craig Butler enjoys getting his nose dirty in run support.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">In their last two games against Montreal, including the East final win last Sunday, Hamilton loaded up against the rush and dared inexperienced quarterback Jonathan Crompton to beat them. It worked, as the Als rushed for just 73 yards and Crompton threw three picks.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">On the field side, speedster Maurice Price, who looks to be getting the nod over Joe West this week, could spend significant time pitted against Canadian Courtney Stephen or Ed Gainey</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">And Steinauer isn&#39;t the only person writing things down. Cornish has a list of 10 moves he uses in games and has developed his body through a variety of methods - including yoga and karate - to enhance his execution.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Sunday&#39;s game won&#39;t be decided on paper, of course, and quotes and proverbs can only carry a player or a team so far. But the Grey Cup will be played on Nov. 30 - exactly 140 years after the birth of one Winston Churchill.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm; text-align: center;\">XXX</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&#0160; <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://ideas.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451bb7469e201b7c7117227970b-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Jim donaghy4\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451bb7469e201b7c7117227970b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://ideas.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451bb7469e201b7c7117227970b-800wi\" title=\"Jim donaghy4\" /></a></p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm; text-align: center;\">91-year-old Ticat fan making the trek to Vancouver</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm; text-align: center;\">By Dan Nolan<br />The Hamilton Spectator</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Jim Donaghy has been blessed.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">He&#39;s been blessed with a loving wife, 11 children, 29 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, friends, well-paying jobs, a comfortable home in the suburbs, wit and a good sense of humour.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">He&#39;s also been able to get pleasure from watching the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and will be attending the 102nd Grey Cup in Vancouver.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">At 91, he will be one of the oldest Ticat fans at Sunday&#39;s game against the Calgary Stampeders.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">He&#39;s been going to games since 1969, the year after he arrived in Hamilton.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">He moved here from Northern Ireland with his wife and brood of four sons and six daughters (one additional daughter was born here). He&#39;s been a season-ticket holder since 1984, a gift given to him every Christmas by his son, Seamus Donaghy of Grimsby.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">The trip west was put together over the last couple of days by a grandson who lives in Lethbridge, Alta. It was partly for the sake of his grandfather. Last year - for his 90th birthday - the Cats presented him with a jersey with former quarterback Henry Burris&#39;s name and number.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Daughter Angela Evans, 60, of Burlington, says her father is the Tiger-Cat&#39;s No. 1 fan.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;He can tell you stats from games that would boggle your mind, &quot; says Evans. &quot;I would have to Google it.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">For his part, Donaghy calls the Grey Cup surprise from his family &quot;fantastic.&quot; He&#39;ll be accompanied by two sons and they will hook up with his grandson and two son-in-laws in Vancouver.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;When you have family like mine, they appreciate how Mary (his wife died three years ago at 80) and I looked after them, &quot; he smiled. &quot;Now, they look after me. I want for nothing.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">There are no worries about his health, at home or on the road. A few weeks ago, he was in Lethbridge.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;(His health is) probably better than mine, &quot; says Evans. &quot;He walks his dog three or four times a day.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Donaghy acknowledged soccer is the big sport in his homeland, but he made up his mind when he moved to Canada he would take an interest in Canadian sports. He first worked at Stelco when he got to Hamilton and recalls the time he was to work a Sunday shift that would conflict with a Ticat game against Montreal.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;I phoned the office and said I&#39;m going to be late because I have to meet some friends from Montreal, &quot; he said. &quot;By the time I got in, they knew what that was about. They said, ‘Ah, we know who your friends are.&#39;&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">He says this year&#39;s Ticats didn&#39;t start off well but have progressed.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;I think we have the best team in the league, &quot; Donaghy said. &quot;Calgary is in for the surprise of their life if they think they&#39;re going to beat us.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm; text-align: center;\">XXX</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&#0160; <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://ideas.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451bb7469e201b7c711727f970b-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"DSC_5596\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451bb7469e201b7c711727f970b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://ideas.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451bb7469e201b7c711727f970b-800wi\" title=\"DSC_5596\" /></a></p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm; text-align: center;\">Dyakowski battles back from near-death experience</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm; text-align: center;\">By Bruce Arthur<br />The Toronto Star</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Peter Dyakowski lay in the bed his teammates had carried into the cluttered ground-level office in his house, because his knee was still immobilized after the surgery and he couldn&#39;t climb the stairs. He was having trouble breathing, a lot of trouble. The pain in his back was searing enough that he barely paid attention to the knee, propped up on a pile of pillows. He lay in the dark, staring at his phone. He knew what was wrong, he figured. He lay there, like an idiot.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;I didn&#39;t want to be rude and wake everyone up in the middle of the night, &quot; said the Hamilton Tiger-Cats offensive lineman, who will play his second game of the season in the Grey Cup against Calgary Sunday. &quot;I didn&#39;t want to wake up my wife, and our head trainer, because she had the (team) minivan keys. I didn&#39;t want to make a scene.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;So I just laid there terrified for three hours. I contemplated infinity, and all that. Yeah. It was pretty terrifying.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Peter Dyakowski is known for a couple things. One, he&#39;s an all-star calibre guard for Hamilton. Two, he&#39;s smart. Teammate Brian Simmons says that when things used to break at the old Ivor Wynne stadium - the team shower, the sauna, anything electric - they got Peter to fix it. Dyakowski won the CBC reality show Canada&#39;s Smartest Person last year, won it by a mile, dusting competitors who included a molecular biologist and a theoretical quantum chemist.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">He reigned until a new champion was crowned Sunday night.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;Yeah, I had to pass the diamond tiara along, &quot; Dyakowski says with a grin.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">But that night, he was dumb. His then-fiancée Rachel was pretty clear on that, later. She came downstairs and she looked at his face, and she knew something was wrong. He was serious. Peter was never that serious. She asked why he didn&#39;t call an ambulance.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;He said, ‘I didn&#39;t want the neighbours to see, &#39; &quot; Rachel says. &quot;My best friend is a nurse in critical care, and she told me, ‘Do you know how many people die every year because they don&#39;t want the neighbours to see?&#39;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;He could have just yelled upstairs that he needed to go to a hospital, like a normal person.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">It had been 12 days since the worst game of his life. Just before halftime of an already-out-of-control Grey Cup in Regina against Saskatchewan, Dyakowski was pushing hard against a fellow earthmover when someone fell into the back of his knee, and his patella tendon tore. In the stands a Rider fan yelled, approximately, &quot;Roll him in a f------ ditch and get him off the field, &quot; and Rachel, sitting with Dyakowski&#39;s father a few seats away, had to be held back from going after the guy, who was forced by other fans to apologize.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Meanwhile, Dyakowski spent the second half watching Saskatchewan run away, surrounded by over 30,000 swaying, ecstatic fans in green.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;When I was inside I heard the call for our touchdown at the start of the third quarter, so I thought maybe we were going to pull it off, and I wanted to go watch, &quot; the 30-year-old Dyakowski says. &quot;And then I was just stuck on their sideline, out there for their celebration, that green tornado, the whole time. The whole fourth quarter. Miserable.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">He had surgery four days after getting home, and was laid up in his office - &quot;I lived in my office. I was like Howard Hughes for a couple months, &quot; he says - and nothing felt normal. He was on painkillers. He and Rachel were trying out readings for their January wedding, and something was wrong. He couldn&#39;t finish a sentence. He tried to ignore the pain in his back, until it shot up to a 10 in the middle of the night.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;I was trying to sleep and I couldn&#39;t, and I was Googling my symptoms, &quot; says Dyakowski. &quot;You know what? It was probably one of the first time someone Googled the correct symptoms. It&#39;s a favourite of hypochondriacs to look up whatever crazy thing, and it tells you you have Hungarian whooping cough or something.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">It was blood clot in his leg and a pulmonary embolism in his right lung, which had collapsed. After Rachel found him they called Carly Vandergrient, the team&#39;s trainer, who picked him up in the team van, because he couldn&#39;t fit in a car with his leg in a brace.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">In the hospital he was whisked in - &quot;the trick, if you ever go to the hospital, is tell them you&#39;re having problems breathing, and they&#39;ll take care of you right away, &quot; he says - and tried to ask questions about how treatable it would be to keep Rachel calm, even though he was freaking out inside. (&quot;I was freaking out regardless, &quot; says Rachel.)</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">They put him on blood thinners, kept him in hospital, got him through the danger zone. Rachel had to inject him in the stomach with blood thinners. He was OK. He made it. (He wants to thank the people at Hamilton General, especially the Thrombosis Clinic, and especially Marlene.) He didn&#39;t have to be as serious anymore.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;I got off crutches a week before the wedding, and I had a cane for the wedding. I really wanted to get off the crutches, &quot; Dyakowski says. &quot;It was a very stylish, snazzy cane. To my horror, I show up at the front, there&#39;s Rachel&#39;s grandfather, exact same cane. A simple phone call could have avoided that type of faux pas, because I&#39;m pretty sure he had more than one. Exact same cane. Pretty embarrassing.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Hamilton equipment manager Drew Strohschein tied cans to a wheelchair, and Dyakowski&#39;s fellow offensive linemen pushed him around the dance floor, and after that he worked his way back.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">They told him rehab would take 12 months, and he took enormous pride in playing on PATs and field goals in the East final against Montreal, 364 days after he got hurt, 20 pounds lighter, joking around, feeling great. He&#39;s so happy to be here, in his hometown. He should be.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm; text-align: center;\">XXX</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://ideas.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451bb7469e201bb07b689cd970d-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"VCRD114231993\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451bb7469e201bb07b689cd970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://ideas.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451bb7469e201bb07b689cd970d-800wi\" title=\"VCRD114231993\" /></a></p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm; text-align: center;\"><strong>Little man makes a big impact</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm; text-align: center;\"><strong>By Neil Davidson</strong><br /><strong>The Canadian Press</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">At six foot five and 325 pounds, Peter Dyakowski fits in nicely when it comes to the supersized world of pro football.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Caterpillar would have a hard time moving the Hamilton Tiger-Cats offensive lineman.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">But the big man couldn&#39;t help but be envious of pint-sized teammate Brandon Banks on the trip out to the Grey Cup.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;I like being a big guy but we were flying out on the plane (Tuesday), we were eating our dinner and all the O-lineman were like this,&#39;&#39; said Dyakowski, mimicking eating in a scrunched-up position.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;And Brandon&#39;s sitting back, enjoying a nice relaxed dinner in this giant chair that he gets to sit in, with all the space in the world. I guess sometimes he&#39;s got a leg up on us.&#39;&#39;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Banks is listed at five foot seven and 153 pounds. But pressed by reporters, the kick returner/receiver known as Speedy or Speedy-B admits to some poetic licence.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;I&#39;ve always been the smallest guy and I honestly probably weigh 149 pounds,&#39;&#39; he said after practice Wednesday at B.C. Place Stadium.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">While it is home to all body types, the Canadian Football League is still a game of giants. Reporters scattered when a passing play neared the sideline Wednesday. The Hamilton players, wearing shoulder pads and helmets, were not going at full speed but still managed to make like a thundering herd.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Amidst the blunt instruments, Banks cut through like a scalpel. An elegant runner, he can change gears in an instant _ like a car with a nitrous oxide system.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;I just feel any time I touch the ball, I have the possibility of going the distance,&#39;&#39; he said.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">He did that twice on electric punt returns last weekend _ three times if you count a 78-yard runback for a score that was called back due to a penalty _ in Hamilton&#39;s 40-24 Eastern final win over the Montreal Alouettes.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Banks had five punt returns for a playoff-record 226 yards. His two TD returns _ which covered 93 and 88 yards _ also tied a playoff mark. The North Carolina native had three carries for 35 yards and four catches for 33 yards to finish with 294 total yards.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">His second TD return was a marvel as he left Als players twisting in the wind.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;It was almost like Casper the Ghost because it looks like we were just grasping for air and he wasn&#39;t there,&#39;&#39; said Montreal coach Tom Higgins.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;Brandon Banks is absolutely a special player. He just has a gift,&#39;&#39; said Ticats slotback Luke Tasker. &quot;That&#39;s all there is to it.&#39;&#39;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">With kickers penalized for punting the ball out of bounds other than within the 20-yard line, it is hard to escape Banks.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Is his size an advantage, he was asked?</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;It has its pros and cons,&#39;&#39; he said. &quot;Because when I get hit, it don&#39;t feel good.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;But it does have a little bit of advantage. I&#39;ve got a little bit of wiggle with me to get away from bigger guys.&#39;&#39;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">One opponent he relishes seeing in his sights is the kicker _ usually the last man to beat, a pylon in opposition colours.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;That&#39;s the best thing. That&#39;s like Christmas morning for me,&#39;&#39; he said with a laugh.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Banks, 26, spent three years as a returner for the Washington Redskins but came north last year after the NFL team did not tender the restricted free agent an offer.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;I don&#39;t think I got a fair shake,&#39;&#39; he said of his time in the NFL. &quot;I don&#39;t think I got an opportunity to show my wide receiver skills.&#39;&#39;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">NFL rule changes also reduced the role of a returner on kickoffs.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;But everything happens for a reason,&#39;&#39; said Banks, who is due to become a free agent after Sunday&#39;s championship game. &quot;I&#39;m glad to be here.&#39;&#39;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">It has all added to the size of the chip on Banks&#39; shoulder. He has been doubted at every level of football.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Hamilton coach Kent Austin says he continues to be surprised by what Banks can do on the field.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;He&#39;s really, really competitive, and he plays with a lot of confidence, you know. But some of the things that he does on the field, yeah, obviously you can&#39;t coach. We&#39;re just lucky to have a guy with that kind of talent.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;Now, that being said, I don&#39;t think he&#39;s going to surprise Calgary. I mean, they&#39;re really good on defensive special teams. They cover well. And we&#39;ve got a big challenge in front of us to continue to hold blocks and give Brandon a chance.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;But he&#39;s just a really talented young man that&#39;s always had to overcome the &#39;I&#39;m not big enough&#39; talk, and &#39;too small to play, not strong enough,&#39; all of those things, yet he continues to break tackles, make plays, and gets the ball in the end zone.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Edmonton&#39;s Tony Tompkins was the last man to return a kickoff for a TD in the Grey Cup, rambling 96 yards in the Eskimos&#39; 38-35 win over Montreal in the 2005 championship game in Vancouver.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Toronto&#39;s Jimmy (The Jet) Cunningham returned a punt 80 yards for a TD in the 1996 Grey Cup when the Argos defeated Edmonton 43-37 in Hamilton.</p>",

As long as we have faith in our own cause and an unconquerable will to win, victory will not be denied us.&quot; - Winston Churchill</p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">VANCOUVER – On the back of the each game plan distributed to Tiger-Cats players, defensive co-ordinator Orlondo Steinauer includes a quote. Ahead of Sunday&#39;s Grey Cup matchup with the Calgary Stampeders, he chose the above offering from Churchill, a frequent source of inspiration.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">But it could have read: &quot;Stop Jon Cornish.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">The Stamps running back led the CFL in rushing this season with 1,082 yards despite playing in just nine games. Calgary finished with a 15-3 record and was 8-1 in games Cornish played in, the only blemish coming in a meaningless game against Winnipeg near the end of the season.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">In last week&#39;s West final, the Eskimos kept Cornish more or less contained on the ground - he had just 54 yards rushing - but he exploded for a 78-yard touchdown off a shovel pass and scored another TD on the ground as Calgary won handily 43-18.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">The Ticats certainly know what they&#39;re up against, said middle linebacker Taylor Reed.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;We have to stop the run. We&#39;ve been doing a good job with it but everything that&#39;s happened before this game doesn&#39;t matter - either we stop the run or we don&#39;t, &quot; Reed said.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Hamilton had the No. 1 ranked rush defence during the CFL season, giving up a measly 76.8 yards per game, but they weren&#39;t able to contain the Stampeders rushing attack in two regular season games as they allowed 111 and 136 yards in a pair of losses. The good news? The last of those games was played in August, before the Ticat defence was fully formed.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">The bad news? Cornish didn&#39;t play in either one.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;We just need to get him down - any tackle is a good tackle. Linebackers like to square up running backs and make it look good, &quot; Reed said.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;It does not need to make the highlights as long as we are on the stage when the confetti is dropping.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">The updated Hamilton defence seems to be well constructed to handle the challenge.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Defensive tackles Ted Laurent and Bryan Hall have been stout the second half of the season, while ends Justin Hickman and Eric Norwood are assignment sound. The linebackers are an athletic, physical group led by team tackle leader Simoni Lawrence.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">In the secondary, the Ticats have physical halfbacks in Brandon Stewart and Rico Murray, while safety Craig Butler enjoys getting his nose dirty in run support.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">In their last two games against Montreal, including the East final win last Sunday, Hamilton loaded up against the rush and dared inexperienced quarterback Jonathan Crompton to beat them. It worked, as the Als rushed for just 73 yards and Crompton threw three picks.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">On the field side, speedster Maurice Price, who looks to be getting the nod over Joe West this week, could spend significant time pitted against Canadian Courtney Stephen or Ed Gainey</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">And Steinauer isn&#39;t the only person writing things down. Cornish has a list of 10 moves he uses in games and has developed his body through a variety of methods - including yoga and karate - to enhance his execution.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Sunday&#39;s game won&#39;t be decided on paper, of course, and quotes and proverbs can only carry a player or a team so far. But the Grey Cup will be played on Nov. 30 - exactly 140 years after the birth of one Winston Churchill.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm; text-align: center;\">XXX</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&#0160; <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://ideas.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451bb7469e201b7c7117227970b-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Jim donaghy4\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451bb7469e201b7c7117227970b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://ideas.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451bb7469e201b7c7117227970b-800wi\" title=\"Jim donaghy4\" /></a></p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm; text-align: center;\">91-year-old Ticat fan making the trek to Vancouver</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm; text-align: center;\">By Dan Nolan<br />The Hamilton Spectator</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Jim Donaghy has been blessed.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">He&#39;s been blessed with a loving wife, 11 children, 29 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, friends, well-paying jobs, a comfortable home in the suburbs, wit and a good sense of humour.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">He&#39;s also been able to get pleasure from watching the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and will be attending the 102nd Grey Cup in Vancouver.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">At 91, he will be one of the oldest Ticat fans at Sunday&#39;s game against the Calgary Stampeders.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">He&#39;s been going to games since 1969, the year after he arrived in Hamilton.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">He moved here from Northern Ireland with his wife and brood of four sons and six daughters (one additional daughter was born here). He&#39;s been a season-ticket holder since 1984, a gift given to him every Christmas by his son, Seamus Donaghy of Grimsby.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">The trip west was put together over the last couple of days by a grandson who lives in Lethbridge, Alta. It was partly for the sake of his grandfather. Last year - for his 90th birthday - the Cats presented him with a jersey with former quarterback Henry Burris&#39;s name and number.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Daughter Angela Evans, 60, of Burlington, says her father is the Tiger-Cat&#39;s No. 1 fan.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;He can tell you stats from games that would boggle your mind, &quot; says Evans. &quot;I would have to Google it.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">For his part, Donaghy calls the Grey Cup surprise from his family &quot;fantastic.&quot; He&#39;ll be accompanied by two sons and they will hook up with his grandson and two son-in-laws in Vancouver.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;When you have family like mine, they appreciate how Mary (his wife died three years ago at 80) and I looked after them, &quot; he smiled. &quot;Now, they look after me. I want for nothing.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">There are no worries about his health, at home or on the road. A few weeks ago, he was in Lethbridge.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;(His health is) probably better than mine, &quot; says Evans. &quot;He walks his dog three or four times a day.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Donaghy acknowledged soccer is the big sport in his homeland, but he made up his mind when he moved to Canada he would take an interest in Canadian sports. He first worked at Stelco when he got to Hamilton and recalls the time he was to work a Sunday shift that would conflict with a Ticat game against Montreal.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;I phoned the office and said I&#39;m going to be late because I have to meet some friends from Montreal, &quot; he said. &quot;By the time I got in, they knew what that was about. They said, ‘Ah, we know who your friends are.&#39;&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">He says this year&#39;s Ticats didn&#39;t start off well but have progressed.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;I think we have the best team in the league, &quot; Donaghy said. &quot;Calgary is in for the surprise of their life if they think they&#39;re going to beat us.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm; text-align: center;\">XXX</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&#0160; <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://ideas.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451bb7469e201b7c711727f970b-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"DSC_5596\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451bb7469e201b7c711727f970b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://ideas.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451bb7469e201b7c711727f970b-800wi\" title=\"DSC_5596\" /></a></p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm; text-align: center;\">Dyakowski battles back from near-death experience</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm; text-align: center;\">By Bruce Arthur<br />The Toronto Star</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Peter Dyakowski lay in the bed his teammates had carried into the cluttered ground-level office in his house, because his knee was still immobilized after the surgery and he couldn&#39;t climb the stairs. He was having trouble breathing, a lot of trouble. The pain in his back was searing enough that he barely paid attention to the knee, propped up on a pile of pillows. He lay in the dark, staring at his phone. He knew what was wrong, he figured. He lay there, like an idiot.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;I didn&#39;t want to be rude and wake everyone up in the middle of the night, &quot; said the Hamilton Tiger-Cats offensive lineman, who will play his second game of the season in the Grey Cup against Calgary Sunday. &quot;I didn&#39;t want to wake up my wife, and our head trainer, because she had the (team) minivan keys. I didn&#39;t want to make a scene.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;So I just laid there terrified for three hours. I contemplated infinity, and all that. Yeah. It was pretty terrifying.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Peter Dyakowski is known for a couple things. One, he&#39;s an all-star calibre guard for Hamilton. Two, he&#39;s smart. Teammate Brian Simmons says that when things used to break at the old Ivor Wynne stadium - the team shower, the sauna, anything electric - they got Peter to fix it. Dyakowski won the CBC reality show Canada&#39;s Smartest Person last year, won it by a mile, dusting competitors who included a molecular biologist and a theoretical quantum chemist.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">He reigned until a new champion was crowned Sunday night.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;Yeah, I had to pass the diamond tiara along, &quot; Dyakowski says with a grin.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">But that night, he was dumb. His then-fiancée Rachel was pretty clear on that, later. She came downstairs and she looked at his face, and she knew something was wrong. He was serious. Peter was never that serious. She asked why he didn&#39;t call an ambulance.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;He said, ‘I didn&#39;t want the neighbours to see, &#39; &quot; Rachel says. &quot;My best friend is a nurse in critical care, and she told me, ‘Do you know how many people die every year because they don&#39;t want the neighbours to see?&#39;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;He could have just yelled upstairs that he needed to go to a hospital, like a normal person.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">It had been 12 days since the worst game of his life. Just before halftime of an already-out-of-control Grey Cup in Regina against Saskatchewan, Dyakowski was pushing hard against a fellow earthmover when someone fell into the back of his knee, and his patella tendon tore. In the stands a Rider fan yelled, approximately, &quot;Roll him in a f------ ditch and get him off the field, &quot; and Rachel, sitting with Dyakowski&#39;s father a few seats away, had to be held back from going after the guy, who was forced by other fans to apologize.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Meanwhile, Dyakowski spent the second half watching Saskatchewan run away, surrounded by over 30,000 swaying, ecstatic fans in green.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;When I was inside I heard the call for our touchdown at the start of the third quarter, so I thought maybe we were going to pull it off, and I wanted to go watch, &quot; the 30-year-old Dyakowski says. &quot;And then I was just stuck on their sideline, out there for their celebration, that green tornado, the whole time. The whole fourth quarter. Miserable.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">He had surgery four days after getting home, and was laid up in his office - &quot;I lived in my office. I was like Howard Hughes for a couple months, &quot; he says - and nothing felt normal. He was on painkillers. He and Rachel were trying out readings for their January wedding, and something was wrong. He couldn&#39;t finish a sentence. He tried to ignore the pain in his back, until it shot up to a 10 in the middle of the night.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;I was trying to sleep and I couldn&#39;t, and I was Googling my symptoms, &quot; says Dyakowski. &quot;You know what? It was probably one of the first time someone Googled the correct symptoms. It&#39;s a favourite of hypochondriacs to look up whatever crazy thing, and it tells you you have Hungarian whooping cough or something.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">It was blood clot in his leg and a pulmonary embolism in his right lung, which had collapsed. After Rachel found him they called Carly Vandergrient, the team&#39;s trainer, who picked him up in the team van, because he couldn&#39;t fit in a car with his leg in a brace.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">In the hospital he was whisked in - &quot;the trick, if you ever go to the hospital, is tell them you&#39;re having problems breathing, and they&#39;ll take care of you right away, &quot; he says - and tried to ask questions about how treatable it would be to keep Rachel calm, even though he was freaking out inside. (&quot;I was freaking out regardless, &quot; says Rachel.)</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">They put him on blood thinners, kept him in hospital, got him through the danger zone. Rachel had to inject him in the stomach with blood thinners. He was OK. He made it. (He wants to thank the people at Hamilton General, especially the Thrombosis Clinic, and especially Marlene.) He didn&#39;t have to be as serious anymore.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;I got off crutches a week before the wedding, and I had a cane for the wedding. I really wanted to get off the crutches, &quot; Dyakowski says. &quot;It was a very stylish, snazzy cane. To my horror, I show up at the front, there&#39;s Rachel&#39;s grandfather, exact same cane. A simple phone call could have avoided that type of faux pas, because I&#39;m pretty sure he had more than one. Exact same cane. Pretty embarrassing.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Hamilton equipment manager Drew Strohschein tied cans to a wheelchair, and Dyakowski&#39;s fellow offensive linemen pushed him around the dance floor, and after that he worked his way back.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">They told him rehab would take 12 months, and he took enormous pride in playing on PATs and field goals in the East final against Montreal, 364 days after he got hurt, 20 pounds lighter, joking around, feeling great. He&#39;s so happy to be here, in his hometown. He should be.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm; text-align: center;\">XXX</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://ideas.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451bb7469e201bb07b689cd970d-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"VCRD114231993\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451bb7469e201bb07b689cd970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://ideas.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451bb7469e201bb07b689cd970d-800wi\" title=\"VCRD114231993\" /></a></p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm; text-align: center;\"><strong>Little man makes a big impact</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm; text-align: center;\"><strong>By Neil Davidson</strong><br /><strong>The Canadian Press</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">At six foot five and 325 pounds, Peter Dyakowski fits in nicely when it comes to the supersized world of pro football.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Caterpillar would have a hard time moving the Hamilton Tiger-Cats offensive lineman.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">But the big man couldn&#39;t help but be envious of pint-sized teammate Brandon Banks on the trip out to the Grey Cup.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;I like being a big guy but we were flying out on the plane (Tuesday), we were eating our dinner and all the O-lineman were like this,&#39;&#39; said Dyakowski, mimicking eating in a scrunched-up position.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;And Brandon&#39;s sitting back, enjoying a nice relaxed dinner in this giant chair that he gets to sit in, with all the space in the world. I guess sometimes he&#39;s got a leg up on us.&#39;&#39;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Banks is listed at five foot seven and 153 pounds. But pressed by reporters, the kick returner/receiver known as Speedy or Speedy-B admits to some poetic licence.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;I&#39;ve always been the smallest guy and I honestly probably weigh 149 pounds,&#39;&#39; he said after practice Wednesday at B.C. Place Stadium.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">While it is home to all body types, the Canadian Football League is still a game of giants. Reporters scattered when a passing play neared the sideline Wednesday. The Hamilton players, wearing shoulder pads and helmets, were not going at full speed but still managed to make like a thundering herd.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Amidst the blunt instruments, Banks cut through like a scalpel. An elegant runner, he can change gears in an instant _ like a car with a nitrous oxide system.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;I just feel any time I touch the ball, I have the possibility of going the distance,&#39;&#39; he said.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">He did that twice on electric punt returns last weekend _ three times if you count a 78-yard runback for a score that was called back due to a penalty _ in Hamilton&#39;s 40-24 Eastern final win over the Montreal Alouettes.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Banks had five punt returns for a playoff-record 226 yards. His two TD returns _ which covered 93 and 88 yards _ also tied a playoff mark. The North Carolina native had three carries for 35 yards and four catches for 33 yards to finish with 294 total yards.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">His second TD return was a marvel as he left Als players twisting in the wind.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;It was almost like Casper the Ghost because it looks like we were just grasping for air and he wasn&#39;t there,&#39;&#39; said Montreal coach Tom Higgins.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;Brandon Banks is absolutely a special player. He just has a gift,&#39;&#39; said Ticats slotback Luke Tasker. &quot;That&#39;s all there is to it.&#39;&#39;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">With kickers penalized for punting the ball out of bounds other than within the 20-yard line, it is hard to escape Banks.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Is his size an advantage, he was asked?</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;It has its pros and cons,&#39;&#39; he said. &quot;Because when I get hit, it don&#39;t feel good.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;But it does have a little bit of advantage. I&#39;ve got a little bit of wiggle with me to get away from bigger guys.&#39;&#39;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">One opponent he relishes seeing in his sights is the kicker _ usually the last man to beat, a pylon in opposition colours.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;That&#39;s the best thing. That&#39;s like Christmas morning for me,&#39;&#39; he said with a laugh.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Banks, 26, spent three years as a returner for the Washington Redskins but came north last year after the NFL team did not tender the restricted free agent an offer.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;I don&#39;t think I got a fair shake,&#39;&#39; he said of his time in the NFL. &quot;I don&#39;t think I got an opportunity to show my wide receiver skills.&#39;&#39;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">NFL rule changes also reduced the role of a returner on kickoffs.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;But everything happens for a reason,&#39;&#39; said Banks, who is due to become a free agent after Sunday&#39;s championship game. &quot;I&#39;m glad to be here.&#39;&#39;</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">It has all added to the size of the chip on Banks&#39; shoulder. He has been doubted at every level of football.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Hamilton coach Kent Austin says he continues to be surprised by what Banks can do on the field.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;He&#39;s really, really competitive, and he plays with a lot of confidence, you know. But some of the things that he does on the field, yeah, obviously you can&#39;t coach. We&#39;re just lucky to have a guy with that kind of talent.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;Now, that being said, I don&#39;t think he&#39;s going to surprise Calgary. I mean, they&#39;re really good on defensive special teams. They cover well. And we&#39;ve got a big challenge in front of us to continue to hold blocks and give Brandon a chance.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">&quot;But he&#39;s just a really talented young man that&#39;s always had to overcome the &#39;I&#39;m not big enough&#39; talk, and &#39;too small to play, not strong enough,&#39; all of those things, yet he continues to break tackles, make plays, and gets the ball in the end zone.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Edmonton&#39;s Tony Tompkins was the last man to return a kickoff for a TD in the Grey Cup, rambling 96 yards in the Eskimos&#39; 38-35 win over Montreal in the 2005 championship game in Vancouver.</p>\r\n<p style=\"margin-bottom: 0cm;\">Toronto&#39;s Jimmy (The Jet) Cunningham returned a punt 80 yards for a TD in the 1996 Grey Cup when the Argos defeated Edmonton 43-37 in Hamilton.</p>",

Manifestement déçu de sa prestation télévisée sur les plateaux de France 3 dans l’Émission « <em>La voix est libre</em> » et par la faiblesse générale de son argumentation, M. Besche-Commenge cherche visiblement à « <em>refaire le match</em> » dans les colonnes du Petit Journal, mais de manière à la fois déloyale et trompeuse.<br /><br />Sous couvert d’un ton faussement journalistique – M Besche-Commenge se met maladroitement en scène lui-même comme s’il était interrogé par le journal – il affirme qu’en ma qualité de Conseiller Régional délégué en charge de la biodiversité, Maire d’Arbas et Président de l’association Pays de l’Ours – Adet, j’aurais menti durant toute l’émission.<br /><br />Revenons donc sur les faits et point par point, voici les preuves qui valident l’ensemble de mes propos:<br /><br /><strong>OUI, la Directive Habitats impose de restaurer la population d’ours dans les Pyrénées !</strong><br /><br />La Directive impose à la France une obligation de résultats en matière de protection des espèces prioritaires (annexe IV), dont l&#39;ours brun fait partie. La situation étant différente d’un état à l’autre, la Directive laisse le choix des moyens d&#39;y parvenir mais impose à chaque État d’étudier « <em>l’opportunité de réintroduire les espèces de l’annexe IV, lorsque cette mesure est susceptible de contribuer à leur conservation</em> ». Évidemment les réintroductions ne sont pas obligatoires dans un texte qui s’applique à tous les états, car il n’y aurait aucun sens à obliger certains – la Slovénie par exemple – à réintroduire des ours alors que la population n’est pas menacée. Mais dans les Pyrénées, il n’y a pas d’autre moyen de sauver l’ours que d’en lâcher de nouveaux. Il suffit pour s’en convaincre de lire <a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/oncfs-rapports-annuels/\" target=\"_self\">les études de l’ONCFS</a> ou la dernière <a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/2014/01/ours-expertise-collective-scientifique-du-museum-national-d-histoire-naturelle.html\" target=\"_self\">du Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle</a>.<br /><br />M. Besche-Commenge se croît-il plus compétent sur l’ours que les plus grands scientifiques mondialement reconnus ?<br /><br /><strong>OUI, de nouveaux lâchers d&#39;ours sont donc de fait obligatoires dans les Pyrénées !</strong><br /><br />La France fait d’ailleurs l&#39;objet d&#39;une procédure d&#39;infraction par la Commission Européenne à ce motif, depuis novembre 2012. La France a déjà été condamnée par la Cour Européenne de Justice pour insuffisance de protection d&#39;une autre espèce prioritaire, le grand Hamster en Alsace. Elle le sera à nouveau pour l&#39;ours dans les Pyrénées si elle ne restaure pas sa population.<br /><br />M. Besche-Commenge se croît-il plus compétent pour interpréter le droit européen que les juristes de la Commission Européenne... ?<br /><br /><strong>OUI, L&#39;ours est bien l’espèce-symbole des Pyrénées !</strong><br /><br />Le sondage de 2008 demandait « <em>Quelle est l’espèce animale sauvage qui symbolise pour vous le mieux les Pyrénées ?</em> »<br /><br />Les Montagnards pyrénéens ont mis l&#39;ours largement en tête avec 48%, loin devant l’isard (26%) et les autres espèces. L&#39;ours est bien, selon les Pyrénéens, l&#39;espèce qui symbolise le mieux les Pyrénées. <br />S’il en était besoin, les expositions sur l’ours en cours, à Foix comme à Toulouse, le confirment.<br /><br /><strong>OUI, les Français comme les Pyrénéens acceptent et soutiennent massivement la présence de l’ours dans les Pyrénées !</strong><br /><br />Les faits sont têtus : tous les sondages d’opinion réalisés sur le sujet de l’ours mettent en évidence l’acceptation locale de la présence de l’ours :
</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>2003, IFOP, Pyrénées : 86%
</li>\r\n<li>2004, ARSH, Pyrénées-Atlantiques : 77%
</li>\r\n<li>2005, IFOP, Pyrénées Centrales : 84%
</li>\r\n<li>2008, IFOP, Pyrénées : 69%
</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p>M. Besche-Commenge se croît-il plus compétent pour connaître l’état de l’opinion que les instituts de sondage ?<br /><br /><strong>OUI, les populations locales ont bien été consultées avant les lâchers !</strong><br />
Contrairement à ce qu’affirme M. Besche-Commenge, la Directive « <em>Habitats</em> » ne requiert pas l’accord ou «<em> l’adhésion</em> » des populations concernées, mais leur « <em><strong>consultation appropriée</strong></em> ». <br /><br />Comme ils doutaient que cela ait été fait pour les lâchers d’ours de 2006, M. Besche-Commenge et l’ensemble du mouvement anti-ours ont alors saisi les tribunaux. Et c’est le Conseil d’Etat, la plus haute juridiction française, qui a tranché. <a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/2009/03/la-demande-d-annulation-de-la-reintroduction-de-5-ours-dans-les-pyrenees-est-refusee-par-le-conseil-.html\" target=\"_self\">Son arrêt du 23 février 2009</a>, que chacun peut consulter, rejette l’ensemble de leur argumentation et précise : « <em>ont été notamment associés à la concertation les élus locaux des territoires concernés, les responsables des organismes intervenant dans la gestion du massif, des comités départementaux regroupant les représentants des différents acteurs, les fédérations de chasseurs, les associations de protection de la nature et diverses instances scientifique</em>s » et il conclue « <em>les requérants ne sont pas fondés à demander l&#39;annulation de la décision attaquée</em> », « <em>la requête [… ] est rejetée</em> ».<br /><br />Dans un état de droit, ce sont les tribunaux qui jugent de l&#39;application des lois, pas les lobbies. Sérieusement, en contestant ces points de droit, M. Besche-Commenge se croît-il juriste plus compétent que les juges du Conseil d&#39;Etat... ?<br /><br /><strong>OUI, les emplois de bergers sont bien liés au retour de l’ours !</strong><br /><br />Petit rappel des faits : avant 1995, les aides publiques à l’embauche de bergers étaient quasi-nulles, les bergers n’étaient ni déclarés ni correctement rémunérés. Comme par hasard… c’est au moment où il décide de lâcher des ours que l’État commence à subventionner l’embauche de bergers, via le Plan Ours ! <br /><br />En 2005, alors que se prépare un nouveau plan ours, le Préfet de Région écrit dans le dossier de concertation du plan de renforcement « <em>s’agissant plus particulièrement de pastoralisme (…) le ministère de l’agriculture a demandé (…) d’établir en concertation avec les organisations professionnelles agricoles et forestières une série de propositions de soutien de ces activités</em> ». Cette démarche aboutira en 2007 au <a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/psem-plan-soutien-economie-de-montagne/\" target=\"_self\">PSEM, Plan de Soutien à l’Économie de Montagne</a>.<br /><br />M. Besche-Commenge se croît-il plus compétent que le Préfet pour nier que le PSEM est une conséquence directe du plan ours ?<br /><br />Que l’Administration ait eu ensuite la faiblesse de céder au lobby anti-ours pour dissocier le plan ours du PSEM ne change rien à l’histoire : l’essentiel des mesures en faveur du pastoralisme dans les Pyrénées est lié au retour de l’ours, et les bergers pour la plupart lui doivent leur emploi. Qu’ils ne l’oublient pas trop vite : ils sont alliés, à défaut d’être amis, et la disparition de l’ours si elle devait intervenir un jour entraînerait de manière inéluctable leur propre disparition. <br /><br />Enfin, toujours à propos des bergers : Comment M. Besche-Commenge peut-il exploiter en l’exhibant la détresse de jeunes bergers confrontés à la prédation, alors que les techniques de protection des troupeaux ont été supprimées de la formation de bergers en Ariège dont il est un des principaux intervenants !? Le rôle premier d’un berger n’est-il pas de protéger les bêtes dont il a la garde ? Dans quelle mesure cette détresse n’est-elle pas organisée pour augmenter les dégâts et justifier l’opposition à l’ours ? <br /><br />Manifestement, de moins en moins d’éleveurs partagent ce cynisme, si l’on en croit l’extension continue des mesures de protection depuis 15 ans, avec une efficacité chaque année meilleure. Ainsi, si les dégâts d’ours ont baissé de moitié depuis 2000 alors que le nombre d’ours a doublé, ce n’est vraiment pas grâce à M. Besche-Commenge !<br /><br />Chacun se fera donc son opinion sur ce débat et sur qui cherche vraiment à manipuler l’opinion. Nous avons aujourd’hui 20 ans se recul sur le dossier de l’ours et cela devrait nous permettre à la fois de dépassionner les débats et d’objectiver les problèmes qui restent à résoudre.<br /><br />Monsieur Besche-Commenge l’a dit dans l’émission : il reste 7 à 8 estives où l’ours pose encore un problème sérieux. C’est dire si nous avons avancé et si beaucoup d’autres questions ont été réglées ! <br /><br />Par respect pour les éleveurs qui connaissent encore des prédations, il faut les aider et leur dire la vérité. Ni leur faire croire que les ours pourraient être capturés comme l’a fait le Conseil Général de l’Ariège, ni qu’il n’existe aucune solution efficace, il faut travailler à leur côté pour faire en sorte que, à l’image de nombreuses autres estives, la mise en place de moyens de protection efficaces donne de très bons résultats.</p>\r\n<p>Reste la concertation que vient de lancer Monsieur le Ministre de l’Écologie en vue d’un nouveau plan de renforcement. La encore, on peut se demander si les opposants vont une nouvelle fois la boycotter pour prétendre ensuite qu’elle n’a pas eu lieu, ou si enfin, chacun va prendre ses responsabilités et réussir ensemble à relever ce défi, dans l’intérêt des Pyrénées et des Pyrénéens.<br /><br />François Arcangeli,<br /><br />Conseiller Régional délégué en charge de la biodiversité, Maire d’Arbas et Président de l’association Pays de l’Ours – Adet<br /><br /></p>",

A Year of Mornings began as a blog of daily photographs of - you guessed - mornings by <a href=\"http://www.3191milesapart.com/?page_id=53\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Maria and Stephanie\">Maria and Stephanie</a>. They didn&#39;t know each other then and lived 3191 miles apart, but they had a thing or two in common; their incredible aesthetic sense comes to mind right about now!</p>\r\n<p>Ever since getting A Year of Mornings, I&#39;ve been thinking about <a href=\"http://content.photojojo.com/tutorials/project-365-take-a-photo-a-day/\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"365 Photo Project\">daily photo projects</a>. I like the focus of this project better than the usual 365 Photo Projects; but then again, I like the freedom of the 365 Project more... which is quite the contradiction! The point is though, I&#39;ve been flirting with the idea of starting a 365 Project, with or without a focus... we all know what happened last time I flirted with an idea (oh hello, daily blogging in November!). Will it happen this time? I&#39;m thinking about it.</p>\r\n<p>If you want to read more about A Year of Mornings and how the project started, make sure you read their very inspirational <a href=\"http://www.3191milesapart.com/\" target=\"_self\" title=\"3191 Miles Apart\">blog</a>.</p>",

They didn&#39;t know each other then and lived 3191 miles apart, but they had a thing or two in common; their incredible aesthetic sense comes to mind right about now!</p>\r\n<p>Ever since getting A Year of Mornings, I&#39;ve been thinking about <a href=\"http://content.photojojo.com/tutorials/project-365-take-a-photo-a-day/\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"365 Photo Project\">daily photo projects</a>. I like the focus of this project better than the usual 365 Photo Projects; but then again, I like the freedom of the 365 Project more... which is quite the contradiction! The point is though, I&#39;ve been flirting with the idea of starting a 365 Project, with or without a focus... we all know what happened last time I flirted with an idea (oh hello, daily blogging in November!). Will it happen this time? I&#39;m thinking about it.</p>\r\n<p>If you want to read more about A Year of Mornings and how the project started, make sure you read their very inspirational <a href=\"http://www.3191milesapart.com/\" target=\"_self\" title=\"3191 Miles Apart\">blog</a>.</p>",

Well, I don&#39;t know exactly how I feel about Neil Diamond, but that&#39;s also how I&#0160;categorize people, except I substitute ND with pizza. And even within the group of people who like pizza, there are those who like it and those who <em>love</em> it. I really love it. Actually, if I were brave enough, I would admit to you that I had it yesterday for lunch, ate pizza rolls later as a late night snack, and I&#39;m having it again today for lunch. It just always sounds good!</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">I like all kinds of pizza, but thin crust has a special place in my heart, and I wanted to find a fast and easy thin crust recipe so I could make pizza from scratch more often. If you&#39;re wanting to cut down your pizza dough making time, a yeast-free option is the way to go, and I tried a few options before I found one that I think is the best.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d0912797970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"The best yeast-free pizza dough recipe (click through for recipe)       \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d0912797970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d0912797970c-800wi\" title=\"The best yeast-free pizza dough recipe (click through for recipe)       \" /></span></a>Thin Crust Pizza Dough (Yeast-Free), makes two 10&quot; pizzas.</span><br /><span style=\"font-size: 8pt; background-color: #ffffff;\">Slightly adapted&#0160;from <a href=\"http://www.kingarthurflour.com/blog/2012/07/27/0727-st-louis-style-pizza-thinking-outside-the-takeout-box/\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">this</span></a> thin crust recipe</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">2 cups all-purpose flour</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">1 teaspoon baking powder</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">1/2 teaspoon salt</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">1/2 cup water</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">2 tablespoons olive oil</span><br /><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Mix your flour, baking powder, and salt together in a mixing bowl.

         "content": "<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">Happy Thanksgiving from my house to your house! I hope you have the best day - surrounded by friends and family! Here&#39;s to lots of full tummies and full hearts on this special day of giving thanks! I am cooking the entire dealio here at our house and I loooove doing that. I even bought our turkey two weeks ago! It&#39;s the one time of the year when I buy real yeast and make real rolls... YUMMY. The best part of course being leftovers! I need to cook, eat, and get to sleep so we can get up at 5am and go out shopping! Yes, we are crazy Black Friday shopping peeps. It&#39;s a tradition for us - love to be out in the hustle and bustle of the season. Do you go shopping or stay home in your PJ&#39;s!?&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">I am thankful for so so so many things today. This has been a really good year. Overall, I feel empowered and grateful and happy. We are healthy and employed and we even got to go on vacation just a few weeks ago. So much to thank God for. And, specifically, here on the bloggy blog, I am extremely thankful for YOU - my crafting friends. I am thankful for every bit of encouragement and all the kind words you so generously give me all year long. Here&#39;s to you!!! XOXO</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">I know I have been Christmas crafting like a mad person - but I did want to make a card just for Thanksgiving too - that one last day of Autumn... So I got out a cool new Die cut (by Sizzix called Garden Gate), and some of my very Favorite Papertrey Ink stamps and dies and went at it! Here&#39;s the result and Happy Thanksgiving!&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.ablogcalledwanda.com/.a/6a0120a7861a18970b01bb07acdbc6970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"1 Papertrey Ink Scentimentals - card by Wanda Guess\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0120a7861a18970b01bb07acdbc6970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.ablogcalledwanda.com/.a/6a0120a7861a18970b01bb07acdbc6970d-800wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"1 Papertrey Ink Scentimentals - card by Wanda Guess\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">This die cut comes in two pieces, the back piece and then the gate....you just glue them together. It&#39;s meant to make an album, but I used it for a card. Isn&#39;t it cool? I&#39;m already imagining Spring flowers and birds, and all kinds of good stuff. For today&#39;s card I used some beautiful pumpkin stamps and leaves....

You can see on the left side where I glued the two parts together - it&#39;s a bit thicker right there. I added a tree in the background in dark brown. That die is from Papertrey Ink also. For the extra yellow and red leaves I stamped the top of the pumpkin (it&#39;s a separate stamp) on some cardstock and then cut them out by hand. This way they all match - but in different colors. I also layered two together on the pumpkin tops - you know I love foam squares!!

Here&#39;s to lots of full tummies and full hearts on this special day of giving thanks! I am cooking the entire dealio here at our house and I loooove doing that. I even bought our turkey two weeks ago! It&#39;s the one time of the year when I buy real yeast and make real rolls... YUMMY. The best part of course being leftovers! I need to cook, eat, and get to sleep so we can get up at 5am and go out shopping! Yes, we are crazy Black Friday shopping peeps. It&#39;s a tradition for us - love to be out in the hustle and bustle of the season. Do you go shopping or stay home in your PJ&#39;s!?&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">I am thankful for so so so many things today. This has been a really good year. Overall, I feel empowered and grateful and happy. We are healthy and employed and we even got to go on vacation just a few weeks ago. So much to thank God for. And, specifically, here on the bloggy blog, I am extremely thankful for YOU - my crafting friends. I am thankful for every bit of encouragement and all the kind words you so generously give me all year long. Here&#39;s to you!!! XOXO</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">I know I have been Christmas crafting like a mad person - but I did want to make a card just for Thanksgiving too - that one last day of Autumn... So I got out a cool new Die cut (by Sizzix called Garden Gate), and some of my very Favorite Papertrey Ink stamps and dies and went at it! Here&#39;s the result and Happy Thanksgiving!&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.ablogcalledwanda.com/.a/6a0120a7861a18970b01bb07acdbc6970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"1 Papertrey Ink Scentimentals - card by Wanda Guess\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0120a7861a18970b01bb07acdbc6970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.ablogcalledwanda.com/.a/6a0120a7861a18970b01bb07acdbc6970d-800wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"1 Papertrey Ink Scentimentals - card by Wanda Guess\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">This die cut comes in two pieces, the back piece and then the gate....you just glue them together. It&#39;s meant to make an album, but I used it for a card. Isn&#39;t it cool? I&#39;m already imagining Spring flowers and birds, and all kinds of good stuff. For today&#39;s card I used some beautiful pumpkin stamps and leaves....

You can see on the left side where I glued the two parts together - it&#39;s a bit thicker right there. I added a tree in the background in dark brown. That die is from Papertrey Ink also. For the extra yellow and red leaves I stamped the top of the pumpkin (it&#39;s a separate stamp) on some cardstock and then cut them out by hand. This way they all match - but in different colors. I also layered two together on the pumpkin tops - you know I love foam squares!!

We here at Typepad are committed to making Typepad a better service each day, and we&#39;ve been busy as bees releasing new features and improving the system overall.&#0160; This includes offering new themes, adding entirely new features, and more, all the while implementing your own feedback and suggestions.</em></p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p>We know it&#39;s hard to keep up with all the Typepad news, so we&#39;re going to take a few weeks to look back at some of the features that we&#39;ve introduced this year to make sure you didn&#39;t miss anything.</p>\r\n<p>The next several posts in this special series will be in-depth looks at specific features like the <a href=\"http://help.typepad.com/pop-up-welcome-message.html\" target=\"_self\">welcome message</a>, but that doesn&#39;t mean that those are all the features that we&#39;ve added this year.&#0160; Here&#39;s a quick recap of some of the ones that won&#39;t be getting their own topic.&#0160; Please make sure to check them all out!</p>\r\n<p>First up, we&#39;ve made some significant additions to the design area.&#0160; We&#39;ll be going over the addition of responsive themes (including the <a href=\"http://help.typepad.com/theme_builder.html\" target=\"_self\">responsive theme builder</a>), but we&#39;ve also <a href=\"http://everything.typepad.com/blog/2014/02/tectonic-theme.html\" target=\"_self\">added themes like Tectonic</a> and <a href=\"http://everything.typepad.com/blog/2014/03/loft-now-with-two-column-layout-options.html\" target=\"_self\">improved others with additional layout options</a>.</p>\r\n<p>We had often received requests to make uploading an image to your sidebar an easier process, so with that in mind, at the beginning of the year, we made it dead simple to <a href=\"http://everything.typepad.com/blog/2014/01/new-for-beta-users-easily-upload-sidebar-images-plus-more.html\" target=\"_self\">add images to your sidebar</a>.</p>\r\n<p>We also gussied up the navigation bar and added hover effects to the links you create in your posts.&#0160; <a href=\"http://everything.typepad.com/blog/2014/01/new-for-beta-users-easily-upload-sidebar-images-plus-more.html\" target=\"_self\">It&#39;s kind of fancy</a>.</p>\r\n<p>Search engine optimization (SEO) is one of the most important features for our subscribers.&#0160; With that in mind, we added <a href=\"http://everything.typepad.com/blog/2014/04/a-new-seo-feature-and-a-new-account-level.html\" target=\"_self\">meta descriptions for Pages</a>.</p>\r\n<p>There was even a new account level - <a href=\"http://everything.typepad.com/blog/2014/04/a-new-seo-feature-and-a-new-account-level.html\" target=\"_self\">Enterprise</a> - created to allow small companies and organizations a cheaper way to add an administrator to their plans without upgrading to Typepad Business Class.</p>\r\n<p>One of our new favorite features, <a href=\"http://everything.typepad.com/blog/2014/06/new-for-beta-users-post-carousel.html\" target=\"_self\">the Post Carousel</a>, made it easy to add a slideshow of your latest blog posts to the top of your blog.&#0160; It&#39;s a great way to engage readers and make your blog a little more interactive.</p>\r\n<p>We then went a step further and added the Post Carousel&#39;s functionality to the sidebar with the <a href=\"http://everything.typepad.com/blog/2014/07/new-for-beta-users-widgetpalooza.html\" target=\"_self\">Sidebar Carousel</a>.&#0160; We also released the Copyright and Introduction widgets for the sidebar at this time as well.</p>\r\n<p>Just last week, we also announced that we <a href=\"http://everything.typepad.com/blog/2014/11/paypal-and-typepad-together.html\" target=\"_self\">integrated PayPal with Typepad</a> so you could use your PayPal account to pay for your subscription.</p>\r\n<p>Are&#0160; you using any of these or our other <a href=\"http://everything.typepad.com/blog/features/\" target=\"_self\">new features</a> on your blog?&#0160; If so, sending us at Tweet at <a href=\"http://twitter.com/typepad\" target=\"_self\">@typepad</a> and maybe we&#39;ll showcase your blog!</p>\r\n<p>As you can see, we&#39;ve been working digilently this year to make Typepad an even better place for your blog content.&#0160; Be sure to come back over the next few weeks to learn about other features that we&#39;ve recently introduced.</p>",

         "content": "<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">I try to be grateful every day, but Thanksgiving offers the opportunity to take a step back and focus on some things that are worth a second ‘thank you.’ Last April, my husband and I moved from the house where we lived for twenty-two years and into a new geographic location and home. The impetus for the move was being closer to our children and while we won’t have everyone with us around the Thanksgiving table, we joyously expect sixteen family members with no one having to set foot in an airport.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">Deciding to make a huge move, as we did, is daunting. There were many reasons to maintain the status quo, among them good friends, a gorgeous neighborhood and thousands of books that would need culling. As it turned out, God’s Hand became so evident that we never actually decided to move; somehow, we were just doing it. </span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">One guided step along the way took place when we began exploring what to do with the over three decades of married acquisitions.&#0160; Added to that was mountains of stuff accumulated during the years we raised and homeschooled seven children. While most of our belongings were well loved and not so gently used, we hoped to sell some of them with the rest forming donation and garbage piles. For this task, we placed an ad to see if we could find someone to take charge of that process for us. </span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">After our first interviewee bailed, in walked a young man whose knowledge of furniture and electronics belied his youthful appearance. For two hours, I showed Justin around the house while he took copious notes. As we were saying goodbye, for some reason that I can’t explain, I remembered a piece of art that we had received as a wedding gift and that had remained in a closet since that time. </span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">“Do you by any chance know anything about art work?” I asked.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">“Actually, I do. My grandfather, William Cassius Goodloe, was an artist and I learned a great deal from him.”</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">At that point, I literally started shaking. William Cassius Goodloe, who passed away years ago, was indeed an artist. However, he was better known as a Washington State Supreme Court Justice. In our house, he was best known as one of my husband’s closest friends and as a deeply beloved poetry and art mentor to our young brood. </span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">I quickly ran and retrieved an item I hadn’t shown the young man because I wouldn’t dream of selling it. It was Justice Goodloe’s leather art bag, with his hand painted Northwest scene on the side.&#0160; He had given it to our children for their supplies. When Justin saw it, he became visibly emotional. </span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">A few minutes later, Justin was the proud recipient of his grandfather’s bag (the next week he reciprocated, presenting us with one of the Judge’s paintings) and we not only placed the disposal of our unwanted belongings in his hands but he also organized our entire move, loading, driving the truck and unloading with his own crew. </span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">This serendipitous meeting was only one in a string of “coincidences” that led to our move, making it a truly blessed one. This year, it is one of the many kindnesses for which we give thanks.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><br /><a href=\"http://www.rabbidaniellapin.com/store.php\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">Through t</span><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">he weekend, get free shipping in the U.S. on any online order over $75</span></a></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\"> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.rabbidaniellapin.com/store.php\" style=\"float: left;\" target=\"_self\"><img alt=\"LibraryPackage with Buried Treasure, Aug. 2012 bigger\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a012876b57008970c01b8d09af00f970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://susanlapin.typepad.com/.a/6a012876b57008970c01b8d09af00f970c-75wi\" style=\"width: 60px; margin: 0px 5px 5px 0px;\" title=\"LibraryPackage with Buried Treasure, Aug. 2012 bigger\" /></a><br /></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><a href=\"http://www.rabbidaniellapin.com/store.php\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">Use promo code SHIP at checkout and next year add growth in ancient Jewish wisdom to your personal thanks-giving list.</span></a><br /><br /></p>",

         "renderedContent": "<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">I try to be grateful every day, but Thanksgiving offers the opportunity to take a step back and focus on some things that are worth a second ‘thank you.’ Last April, my husband and I moved from the house where we lived for twenty-two years and into a new geographic location and home. The impetus for the move was being closer to our children and while we won’t have everyone with us around the Thanksgiving table, we joyously expect sixteen family members with no one having to set foot in an airport.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">Deciding to make a huge move, as we did, is daunting. There were many reasons to maintain the status quo, among them good friends, a gorgeous neighborhood and thousands of books that would need culling. As it turned out, God’s Hand became so evident that we never actually decided to move; somehow, we were just doing it. </span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">One guided step along the way took place when we began exploring what to do with the over three decades of married acquisitions.&#0160; Added to that was mountains of stuff accumulated during the years we raised and homeschooled seven children. While most of our belongings were well loved and not so gently used, we hoped to sell some of them with the rest forming donation and garbage piles. For this task, we placed an ad to see if we could find someone to take charge of that process for us. </span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">After our first interviewee bailed, in walked a young man whose knowledge of furniture and electronics belied his youthful appearance. For two hours, I showed Justin around the house while he took copious notes. As we were saying goodbye, for some reason that I can’t explain, I remembered a piece of art that we had received as a wedding gift and that had remained in a closet since that time. </span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">“Do you by any chance know anything about art work?” I asked.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">“Actually, I do. My grandfather, William Cassius Goodloe, was an artist and I learned a great deal from him.”</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">At that point, I literally started shaking. William Cassius Goodloe, who passed away years ago, was indeed an artist. However, he was better known as a Washington State Supreme Court Justice. In our house, he was best known as one of my husband’s closest friends and as a deeply beloved poetry and art mentor to our young brood. </span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">I quickly ran and retrieved an item I hadn’t shown the young man because I wouldn’t dream of selling it. It was Justice Goodloe’s leather art bag, with his hand painted Northwest scene on the side.&#0160; He had given it to our children for their supplies. When Justin saw it, he became visibly emotional. </span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">A few minutes later, Justin was the proud recipient of his grandfather’s bag (the next week he reciprocated, presenting us with one of the Judge’s paintings) and we not only placed the disposal of our unwanted belongings in his hands but he also organized our entire move, loading, driving the truck and unloading with his own crew. </span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">This serendipitous meeting was only one in a string of “coincidences” that led to our move, making it a truly blessed one. This year, it is one of the many kindnesses for which we give thanks.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><br /><a href=\"http://www.rabbidaniellapin.com/store.php\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">Through t</span><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">he weekend, get free shipping in the U.S. on any online order over $75</span></a></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\"> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.rabbidaniellapin.com/store.php\" style=\"float: left;\" target=\"_self\"><img alt=\"LibraryPackage with Buried Treasure, Aug. 2012 bigger\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a012876b57008970c01b8d09af00f970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://susanlapin.typepad.com/.a/6a012876b57008970c01b8d09af00f970c-75wi\" style=\"width: 60px; margin: 0px 5px 5px 0px;\" title=\"LibraryPackage with Buried Treasure, Aug. 2012 bigger\" /></a><br /></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><a href=\"http://www.rabbidaniellapin.com/store.php\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;\">Use promo code SHIP at checkout and next year add growth in ancient Jewish wisdom to your personal thanks-giving list.</span></a><br /><br /></p>",

All the shops were open and everyone was out and about enjoying themselves, sitting outside and or skiing.&#0160; It really was quite a celebration.</strong></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"color: #bf00bf;\"><strong>&#0160; I loved historic Main Street.&#0160; There were very pretty and nicely kept colorful buildings.&#0160; The shops were all very charming had quality products and items that were fairly priced.&#0160; There were some nice restaurants to dine at and the views were just spectacular in town.</strong></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"color: #bf00bf;\"><strong> There are only a handful of places I&#39;ve visited that I think to myself, wow, it might be nice to live here.&#0160;

The faces leaped towards me. Who they were and what they were thinking seemed secondary to the sheer outwardness of their attention: the wide-eyed, calm focus, which on one level might simply be that of a painter intent on getting the shine on a nose imprinted in his nervous system.
