‘The Little Prince’ becomes world’s most translated book after the Bible

The cult classic by Antoine Saint Exupéry, originally written in French, has been translated into its 300th language — Hassanya — a North African variant of Arabic, reports Livre Hebdo, citing the Antoine de Saint Exupéry Youth Foundation. This makes “Le Petit Prince” the world’s most translated book, excluding religious works.

This translation celebrates the 90th anniversary of the aviator and author’s arrival in Cape Juby on the coast of southern Morocco. Hassanya is the language spoken by Moorish tribes living in Cap Juby, where the author served as an Aéropostale station manager and where he found great inspiration for his works.

Antoine Saint Exupéry arrived in Cape Juby in 1927. He wrote his first book “Southern Mail” (“Courrier sud”) while posted in the region.

With this 300th translation, “Le Petit Prince” becomes the world’s most translated book, with the exception of religious works, including the Bible, which is the current record-holde

Slide One

Language war in Switzerland

Switzerland has 4 official languages : German, French, Italian and Romansh. Traditionaly, the first foreign language taught at school was a national language, German for the french part and French for the german part. But this situation is going to change.

French, English or both? Zurich is the latest canton to decide on whether to teach just one foreign language at primary schools. Pupils in the canton currently learn English from age seven and French from age 11, both during primary school. Backers of the initiative argue that if instructors carefully introduce just one language at the primary level, students will learn a second one faster in secondary school.

The vote comes at a time of increased debate in German-speaking Switzerland over how many languages should be taught to young pupils.
An emotional factor is whether international English should take precedence over the Swiss national language French, traditionally taught for reasons of national cohesion. This meant German-speakers were expected to learn French and vice versa. In French-speaking Switzerland, German is still taught before any other foreign languages.

Bulle youth meeting RJ 2017

For this 25th anniversary, the Youth Meeting (RJ) had the theme Freedom .  This Friday, May 5, 2017 in Bulle in Switzerland, thousands of young people meet to celebrate and share the message of freedom.

For the first meeting that was broadcasted with youtube,  Ben Fitzgerald shared his testimonies. He is the Leader of Awakening Europe and GODfest Ministries. He spends a lot of his time traveling abroad as an Evangelist and for several years has been a Pastor at Bethel Church in Redding, California. Originally from Australia, He met Jesus in an encounter that deeply changed him late in 2002 whilst he was dealing drugs and extremely broken. Since then Ben has lived passionately about one thing, showing the world Jesus in his everyday life and taking the good news of the Kingdom to the nations. Ben loves to help people live in God’s fullness of freedom and identity and has a deep conviction that the future of nations will be transformed by radical believers living free and proclaiming Jesus boldly.

“I have never sensed such an urgent call to the Harvest as in Central Europe, it’s not like anywhere else in the world. Prague will be history in the making.”
-Ben Fitzgerald

Clean Bandit – Symphony feat. Zara Larsson

 

I’ve been hearing symphonies
Before all I heard was silence
A rhapsody for you and me
And every melody is timeless
Life was stringing me along
Then you came and you cut me loose
Was solo singing on my own
Now I can’t find the key without you

And now your song is on repeat
And I’m dancin’ on to your heartbeat
And when you’re gone, I feel incomplete
So if you want the truth

I just wanna be part of your symphony
Will you hold me tight and not let go?
Symphony
Like a love song on the radio
Will you hold me tight and not let go?

I’m sorry if it’s all too much
Every day you’re here, I’m healing
And I was runnin’ out of luck
I never thought I’d find this feeling
‘Cause I’ve been hearing symphonies
Before all I heard was silence
A rhapsody for you and me
(A rhapsody for you and me)
And every melody is timeless

And now your song is on repeat
And I’m dancin’ on to your heartbeat
And when you’re gone, I feel incomplete
So if you want the truth

I just wanna be part of your symphony
Will you hold me tight and not let go?
Symphony
Like a love song on the radio
Will you hold me tight and not let go?

And now your song is on repeat
And I’m dancin’ on to your heartbeat
And when you’re gone, I feel incomplete
So if you want the truth

I just wanna be part of your symphony
Will you hold me tight and not let go?
Symphony
Like a love song on the radio
Symphony
Will you hold me tight and not let go?
Symphony
Like a love song on the radio
Will you hold me tight and not let go?

Champvent castle in Switzerland

Champvent Castle is located outside the village, on the farthest point of a luxuriant hill rising above the small valley between Mathod and Montagny-près-Yverdon. The building ranks among the best preserved medieval fortresses in the Lake Geneva Region. It was built in the 13th century by the powerful lords of Grandson and is a model of the “Savoy Square”, i.e. it consists of a rectangular enclosure flanked by four round towers, like the one in Yverdon-les-Bains itself. One of the towers is a donjon and the dwellings behind the surrounding wall look out on a central courtyard.

Champvent Castle is well worth seeing but cannot be visited as it is a private property. It can be reached after one hour’s walk through the countryside from Essert-sous-Champvent station (train from Yverdon-les-Bains to Sainte-Croix).

American pushed the creation of European Union

Europe Union is not finished yet. This organisation is not in good health. Who decide ? It is complicated to know. European Commission have lot of power. Government are not free anymore. Now with Euro freedom is just a theoretical concept but not reality. Look at Greeceland. They are slave. They are poor.

In 2016 United Kindom decided to leave European Union. They are going to negociate how they will leave.

Now in France is presidential election. Strange campagne. People dont trust politician anymore. They don’t want the same people who lead us. François Asselineau is a potential candidat. Televisions, Radios and news paper ingnore him. They even forget the name. But as he is now officialy accepted in as candidate they can’t avoid him.

François Asselineau wants that France leave European Union, Euro and NATO in order to restore its freedom and democraty. This is Frexit.

According to François Asselineau Jean Momet and Robert Schuman was CIA Agents. The idea of Europe Union was an american idea against Sovietic Union.
