Hotel beers. This will be one of my last few posts for a while. Will be cutting out the booze, sugars and other unhealthy habits to embrace a more balanced life for the foreseeable future. Sometimes life has bigger priorities than our hobbies and we need to be open and aware of that, willing to sacrifice . It’s been a fun ride! #solodome#blacktuesday#goals#bless#community#introspection#selfcare
@Regran_ed from @freedom_faction - Thoughts?
Ever since the May 1968 protests that paralysed #France and precipitated the demise of its war hero Charles de Gaulle, French governments have been terrified by the prospect of facing a #unitedfront of workers and student protests. While French universities are largely quiet nowadays, the prospect of a two-pronged offensive edged nearer to reality last week when high-school pupils seized on the momentum from the so-called #YellowVestmovement to vent their anger at #PresidentEmmanuelMacron ’s educational reforms.
Up to 300 French high schools, known as lycées, were barricaded every day last week, amid scenes of vandalism, bins set on fire and violent clashes between police and students. The tense standoff made international headlines on Thursday when video footage posted on social media showed #riotpolice in a #Paris suburb forcing dozens of students to kneel down in rows, their hands on their heads.
On Monday, France’s education ministry said the number of affected schools had fallen to 120, only a third of which were fully blocked. But with student unions calling for a “#BlackTuesday ” in lycées across the country on December 11, the relative calm could prove to be merely a lull before the storm.
Hands off ‘le bac’
High-school students have been angered by #PresidentMacron 's plans to change the end-of-school exam, known as the baccalaureate or ‘bac’, and replace the broad subject areas pupils currently choose from – science, literature or social sciences – with more specific courses. They demand the repeal of a reform, passed last year, which introduces stricter selection criteria for university. Critics say the government’s moves breed inequality between rich schools and poorer, peripheral ones. They also oppose plans for a national civic service for French youths, due to be rolled out in 2026. “We will continue protesting until our demands are met,” Jules Spector, head of the FIDL union, told FRANCE 24. “The government has made no gestures towards us,” he added. “On the contrary, it is obvious they are waiting for the end of term to slow down our movement.” 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾#YellowVest - #regrann
Главная новость этого понедельника - про вторник! Ибо это Чёрный вторник! Вот прям завтра - 11 декабря. .
Бурбоны всему голова: вторник чернеет, как обожженная бочка, в которой выдерживаются бурбоны и такой же черный, как знаменитая пятница распродаж.
Мы составили специальное меню бурбонов, взяв из которого от 1 до 5 шотов вы получаете скидку от 10% до 50% соответственно на все напитки из нашего меню! Включая эти шоты, кстати говоря. Ну, ладно, не все напитки: пиво в бутылках и банках не участвует в этом безумии. Но все остальное - точно!
Всё именно так, как кажется: 1 шот = 10%, 2 шота = 20% и так далее до 50%. #thechops#blacktuesday
