    1. Tom Peacock. (2022, January 3). Lots of chat about B.1.640.2 in the last few days—Just a few points to keep in mind: - B.1.640.2 actually predates Omicron—In all that time there are exactly... 20 sequences (compared to the >120k Omis in less time) Def not one worth worrying about too much at the mo...

    1. Kim Willsher. (2021, December 16). Let’s try again...new “drastic” regulations for anyone planning to come to France from UK. There must be a “compelling” reason. This does not include tourism or business French nationals/residents can return but must have a negative Covid test within 24hrs before departure. 1/2 [Tweet]. @kimwillsher1. https://twitter.com/kimwillsher1/status/1471401803828764682

    1. John Lichfield. (2021, April 10). Weekly French vaccination thread. The French roll-out, still described as “stuttering” or “glacial” in UK media (and even some Fr media) continues to boom. Over 500,000 doses (1st/ 2nd) were given yesterday, a record. Fr should exceed its 10m 1st jabs 15 April target by 2m. 1/12 https://t.co/hhJa8rafCV [Tweet]. @john_lichfield. https://twitter.com/john_lichfield/status/1380807805960130561

    1. "Up there the winters are harder yet than here, and still longer. We have only dogs to draw our sleds, fine strong dogs, but bad-tempered and often half wild, and we feed them but once a day, in the evening, on frozen fish.... Yes, there are settlements, but almost no farming; the men live by trapping and fishing ... No, I never had any difficulty with the Indians; I always got on very well with them. I know nearly all those on the Mistassini and this river, for they used to come to our place before my father died. You see he often went trapping in winter when he was not in the shanties, and one season when he was at the head of the Riviere aux Foins, quite alone, a tree that he was cutting for firewood slipped in falling, and it was the Indians who found him by chance next day, crushed and half-frozen though the weather was mild. He was in their game preserve, and they might very well have pretended not to see him and have left him to die there; but they put him on their toboggan, brought him to their camp, and looked after him. You knew my father: a rough man who often took a glass, but just in his dealings, and with a good name for doing that sort of thing himself. So when he parted with these Indians he told them to stop and see him in the spring when they would be coming down to Pointe Bleue with their furs-François Paradis of Mistassini,' said he to them, will not forget what you have done ... François Paradis.' And when they came in spring while running the river he looked after them well and every one carried away a new ax, a fine woollen blanket and tobacco for six months. Always after that they used to pay us a visit in the spring, and father had the pick of their best skins for less than the companies' buyers had to pay. When he died they treated me in the same way be cause I was his son and bore the same name, François Paradis. With more capital I could have made a good bit of money in this trade-a good bit of money."

      In by "skins" is he referring to animal skins? Their only source of transportation was dog drawn sleds? What kind of dogs were these to endure such winters? Amazing how the natives were treated so poorly by colonizers and how nicely the natives care for them when they see them struggling even after how they have been treated

    1. Hardly had the Father ended Mass, and the Christians—who, according to their custom, had filled the Church after the rising of the [9] Sun—were still continuing their devotions there, when the cry arose, " To arms! and repel the enemy! "—who, having come unexpectedly, had made his approaches by night. Some hasten to the combat, others to flight: there is naught but alarm and terror everywhere. The Father, among the first to rush where he sees the danger greatest, encourages his people to a brave defense; and—as if he had seen Paradise open for the Christians, and Hell on the point of swallowing up all the Infidels—he speaks to them in a tone so [page 87] animated with the spirit which was possessing him, that, having made a breach in hearts which till then had been most rebellious, he gave them a Christian heart. The number of these proved to be so great that, unable to cope with it by baptizing them one after the other, he was constrained to dip his handkerchief in the water (which was all that necessity then offered him), in order to shed abroad as quickly as possible this grace on those poor Savages, who cried mercy to him,—using the manner of baptizing which is called " by aspersion."

      So...he dipped his handkerchief in water so that he could baptize people "quicker???"

Constructions, extensions, rénovations Valérie Pécresse et Marie-Carole Ciuntu doivent également faire un point sur la mise en œuvre du Plan d'urgence pour les lycées franciliens (2017-2027), les livraisons de la rentrée et les opérations de construction, de reconstruction, d'extension et de rénovation.
    1. 2.2.5. Un fonctionnement particulier de l'État en Île-de-France Les représentants de l'État en Île-de-France s'accordent à souligner les spécificités de leurs missions par rapport à celles qu'ils peuvent exercer en province. La taille des départements, leur puissance économique et sociale ainsi que la proximité des lieux et des acteurs politiques nationaux ont pour effet de relativiser certaines marges de manœuvre, d'amoindrir les spécificités locales, d'accentuer la dépendance au pouvoir central. La légitimité personnelle que ces représentants ont à vis-à-vis des élus, des usagers et des personnels leur est sans aucun doute moins « donnée » qu'en province, plus difficile à construire.
