From Google Translate, an interview with French General Vincent Desportes on how France feels after agreeing to partner with the US on Syria followed by Obama's stand down in order to go to Congress. Whoever at Google Translate did this made the message almost incomprehensible. But the sum of its parts is that the French leadership is not happy with President Obama.
It's hard to know what to think about the Syria problem. I haven't been ignoring the whole thing but it just seems as though there is no good solution.
For the past couple of weeks commentators have been commenting, the president has been pondering, the congress has been recessing, intelligencers have been gathering, all the while the Syrians have most likely been hiding whatever it would be that we could attack.
Thankfully this is in Bristol City England, not the US. The city is defending a health and safety poster meant to get dog owners to pick up after their pet but the imagery they chose is a bit over the top for most people. It includes a young child eating dog feces with the words, "children will put anything in their mouths."
Seems to be animal stories here at Respublica today.
I mean it. Showering everyday is bad for you and should be limited to once or twice a week.
Can you believe this? In Great Britain health experts are pushing the idea that it is much healthier to only bath or shower once or twice a week and many people over there seem to be going along with this idea. They named it "cleansing reduction". "Instead of bathing every day, proponents whittle their washing habits to once or twice a week on the grounds that too much cleansing can strip the skin and hair of essential oils. While it might sound disgusting, it would seem that cleansing reduction is catching on, after a poll for tissue manufacturer, SCA, found that 41 per cent of British men and 33 per cent of women no longer shower every day."
It is the younger generation who are leading the trend for joining the great unwashed, with 37 percent of teenagers admitting to taking a 'shower in a can'-that's a quick spritz of deoderant to you and me.
