"Newspaper reporter Jerry Mitchell does not give up easily.
He was working the courtroom beat in the southern city of Jackson,
Mississippi when he first saw the film 'Mississippi Burning'.
It changed his life.
The movie was loosely based on the murder of three civil rights workers
in the summer of 1964...
They died at the hands of the Ku Klux Klan."

Rise of the all-you-can-eat restaurant
Pay at the door. Then, "grab a plate, help yourself, help yourself again"
"In just 12 months the all-you-can-eat restaurant chain Taybarns has taken
the catering industry by storm - and there are plans to open 30 new branches.
But does it encourage unhealthy eating?...
The all-you-can-eat concept originated in the US's working areas in the 1930s. Golden Corral has capitalised on that trend, focusing on small-town America,
it now has more than 450 restaurants across 41 states.
But with warnings that
the UK is following the US with rising levels of obesity, isn't this sort of dining experience a cause for concern?

Principe :
"On demande aux élèves de se connecter au site de Wordle.net et de créer un nuage en saisissant divers mots-clés ou expressions. Les élèves enregistrent l'image générée sur leur poste de travail ou sur tout autre support amovible
(clé USb, etc) puis présentent oralement leur nuage à la classe en justifiant
leurs choix par des phrases mettant ces mots en contexte.
Le résultat très personnalisé de chaque nuage est très gratifiant pour l'élève
car il revêt un caractère esthétique et professionnel. Cet outil pourra
également être utilisé pour élaborer des posters, flyers, etc,

Shannon D. Jackson: Woman Arrested For Facebook "Poke"

"Poking" someone on Facebook may sound like a naughty double-entendre,
but generally speaking it's a perfectly harmless (and totally G-rated) way of getting in touch with an online pal."
Shannon "was arrested for allegedly violating an order of protection."
(huffingtonpost.com)

 

Meaning of Poke on Facebook
(hellogiri.com)

  •  "A “poke” is basically someone trying to get your attention
  • It’s one of the meaningless features that are used just to annoy someone
  • If you poke someone not in your network and they poke back,
    you can view their profile even if you're not their friend!
  • A poke is when you allow someone to see your Facebook page for 3 days, so they can know who you are and hopefully add you as a friend."
