Sheldon: To what end?
 
     ===2
Leonard: Hi. Again.

Leonard: Don’t.
Penny: I just, I can’t believe I trusted him.
Leonard: Should I say something? I feel like I should say something.

Penny: You want to know the most pathetic part? Even though I hate his lying, cheating life, I still love him. Is that crazy?
Sheldon: Yes.

Poeme_2

           Guillaume Apolianire - poesie.net


Sous le pont Mirabeau coule la Seine
Et nos amours
Faut-il qu'il m'en souvienne
La joie venait toujours après la peine
Vienne la nuit sonne l'heure
Les jours s'en vont je demeure
Les mains dans les mains restons face à face
Tandis que sous
Le pont de nos bras passe
Des éternels regards l'onde si lasse
Vienne la nuit sonne l'heure
Les jours s'en vont je demeure


L'amour s'en va comme cette eau courante
L'amour s'en va
Comme la vie est lente
Et comme l'Espérance est violente
Vienne la nuit sonne l'heure
Les jours s'en vont je demeure
Passent les jours et passent les semaines
Ni temps passé
Ni les amours reviennent
Sous le pont Mirabeau coule la Seine
Vienne la nuit sonne l'heure
Les jours s'en vont je demeure




Poeme_3

 F.  Villon   Frères humains -text


Frères humains qui après nous vivez,
N'ayez pas vos cœurs durcis à notre égard,
Car, si pitié de nous pauvres avez,
Dieu en aura plus tôt de vous merci.
Vous nous voyez attachés ici, cinq, six :
Quant à notre chair, que nous avons trop nourrie,
Elle est depuis longtemps dévorée et pourrie,
Et nous, les os, devenons cendre et poussière.
De notre malheur, que personne ne se moque,
Mais priez Dieu que tous nous veuille absoudre!

Si nous vous appelons frères, vous n'en devez
Avoir dédain, bien que nous ayons été tués
Par justice. Toutefois vous savez
Que tous les hommes n'ont pas l'esprit bien rassis.
Excusez-nous, puisque nous sommes trépassés,
Auprès du fils de la Vierge Marie,
De façon que sa grâce ne soit pas tarie pour nous,
Et qu'il nous préserve de la foudre infernale.
Nous sommes morts, que personne ne nous tourmente,
Mais priez Dieu que tous nous veuille absoudre!

La pluie nous a lessivés et lavés
Et le soleil nous a séchés et noircis;
Pies, corbeaux nous ont crevé les yeux,
Et arraché la barbe et les sourcils.
Jamais un seul instant nous ne sommes assis;
De ci de là, selon que le vent tourne,
Il ne cesse de nous ballotter à son gré,
Plus becquétés d'oiseaux que dés à coudre.

Hong Kong 1898-2016



  1840-1898  
Hong Kong Island was ceded to Britain in 1842 and Kowloon south of Boundary Street andStonecutters Island in 1860. The colony of Hong Kong attracted a large number of Chinese and Westerners to seek their fortune in the city. Its population increased rapidly and the city became overcrowded. The outbreak of bubonic plague in 1894 became a concern to the Hong Kong Government

  • There was a need to expand the colony to accommodate its growing population. TheQing Dynasty's defeat in the First Sino-Japanese War had shown that it was incapable of defending itself. Victoria City and Victoria Harbour were vulnerable to any hostile forces launching attacks from the hills of Kowloon.
  • Alarmed by the encroachment of other European powers in China, Britain also feared for the security of Hong Kong. Using the most favoured nation clause that it had negotiated with Peking, the United Kingdom demanded the extension of Kowloon to counter the influence of France in southern China in June 1898.


1997. Constituencies -historical background and results

Who were elected to the 70-member Legislative Council, known as Legco?
  • Only 40 of them are elected through universal suffrage. The rest are chosen by members of “functional constituencies” representing various professions, businesses and social groups. These tend to be pro-establishment. 
  • But pro-government candidates did not do as well as they did in the previous elections for Legco in 2012. They kept their majority, but took only 40 seats, three fewer than last time. 
  • Of the 35 “geographical constituency” seats chosen by popular vote, 16 went to establishment candidates and 19 to a mixture of moderate democrats, localists, radicals of other stripes and independent candidates with pro-democracy leanings.

Hong Kong’s politicians had long been divided into two camps. One was usually described as “pro-government” or “pro-Beijing”. The other was called the “pan-democrats”, who wanted full democracy for Hong Kong but did not challenge China’s right to rule it. The elections have revealed a split in the pro-democracy camp between moderates prepared to work within the current system, and young, often highly educated, radicals.
