Bethany Hamilton: surfing with only one arm isn't as hard as beating the stigma

by Liz Barney in Honolulu, Hawaii
Lucas Vigroux

Fuck yeah!

Since losing her left arm during a shark attack 13 years ago, Bethany Hamilton has had to adapt on the waves and try to change the way others perceive her

In Bethany Hamilton’s mind, winning the ESPY award for best female athlete with a disability would have been like “rewinding back to square one”.

Square one being the fateful day 13 years ago when she was attacked by a 14ft tiger shark and lost her left arm. Which is why, this year, she withdrew her name from consideration.

Should you take your children to visit sick relatives? | Ranjana Srivastava

by Ranjana Srivastava

It’s normal to want to protect our children from sadness. But making illness and mortality invisible to them can have unexpected consequences in the long term

During the final weeks of her life, all spent in an Indian hospital, my grandmother deteriorated peacefully, and gracefully, until she slipped into a coma and breathed her last. My 10-year-old self remembers a thing or two about this time.

The hospital’s egg curry, a much-loved north Indian dish, was amazing. The tiny cakes with real butter icing that defied all dietary guidelines weren’t bad either so my cousins and I, gathered in the small room, took turns selecting the menu and outwitting the nurses, who sweetly played along, praising the voracious appetite of our fading grandma. Enveloped in grief at their mother’s impending death, the adults couldn’t bear to look at the food – if our mirth seemed out of place, they never said so.

Why elections are bad for democracy | David Van Reybrouck

by David Van Reybrouck
Lucas Vigroux

Interesting reflection about framing and systemic issues.

Our voting system worked well for decades, but now it is broken. There is a better way to give voice to the people

Brexit is a turning point in the history of western democracy. Never before has such a drastic decision been taken through so primitive a procedure – a one-round referendum based on a simple majority. Never before has the fate of a country – of an entire continent, in fact – been changed by the single swing of such a blunt axe, wielded by disenchanted and poorly informed citizens.

But this is just the latest in a series of worrying blows to the health of democracy. On the surface, everything still seems fine. A few years ago, the World Values Survey, a large-scale international research project, asked more than 73,000 people in 57 countries if they believed democracy was a good way to govern a country – and nearly 92% said yes. But that same survey found that in the past 10 years, around the world, there has been a considerable increase in calls for a strong leader “who does not have to bother with parliament and elections” – and that trust in governments and political parties has reached a historical low. It would appear that people like the idea of democracy but loathe the reality.

Décollage imminent avec ces sucettes interstellaires

Lucas Vigroux

Wooooooooo

Capture d’écran 2016-06-15 à 14.27.54
Les derniers enfants que vous avez eus à garder étaient certes paisibles, mais particulièrement tristes, et pour cause : leurs parents leur interdisent formellement les sucres raffinés. Pas de bonbons, pas de gâteaux industriels, juste des biscuits au son d'avoine et des fruits secs s'il leur prend l'envie de grignoter. Les enfants qui ne mangent pas de bonbons courent droit à la dépression gustativo-nutritionnelle, ne restez pas sans agir. Faites passer ces sucettes-planètes pour de précieux objets de décoration auprès des parents et fourrez-les dans le bec de leur progéniture au plus vite. N'oubliez pas d'en garder une ou deux pour vous. Parfums : Soleil (guimauve), Mercure (tropical mix), Vénus (cerise), Terre (barbapapa), Mars (poire), Jupiter (citron vert), Saturne (goyave), Uranus (mûre), Neptune (mangue) et Pluton (fraise/kiwi). 25,90$ le lot de 10 sucettes faites à la main, à commander par ici
