Napoleon Bonaparte is the father of compulsory public secondary school education in France ! Then other nations learned and applied compulsory public education...
The History of Secondary Education in 19th Century France
Up until the French Revolution, secondary education was only for a few people. However, as the revolution progressed, people came to believe in education for the public. This is shown in Titre Premier of Constitution du 3 Septembre 1791; it states ¡°Il sera cree et organis? une Instruction publique commune a tous les citoyens¡± (1) which translates into "Public education for all citizens will be created ' and organized." In the early 19th century, Napoleon Bonaparte ruled France. He was quite concerned about education; he implemented many reforms to the education system of France.
The first lycee was created in 1802. Article 5 of Decree of 17 March 1808 and sets the program: "The ancient languages, history, rhetoric, logic, and elements of mathematics and physics." https://www.zum.de/whkmla/sp/1011/nb/les1.html
Can you please tell me where can I read the requirements for a PhD thesis in the USA, Germany, France? (in the field of psychology)
In Ukraine, there are some requirements for the number of pages. Or, for example, when I was writing my Ph.D. dissertation, I needed confirmation from private or government organizations that reviewed the results of my dissertation.
I would like to know what are the differences between Ukraine and the USA, Germany, France.
The Security Council has primary responsibility, under the United Nations Charter, for the maintenance of international peace and security. Today the P5 (permanent members) or simply speaking just 5 countries determine the fate of millions during a seize, war or invasion. -by their "veto power by nullifying any attempt to join a conflict or break down an invasion. These countries being the United States, China, France, Russia, and the United Kingdom. However this group has now become polarized due to which most actions are vetoed out by either group A or B.
Group A: China, Russian Fed
Group B: USA, UK, France
Other countries who have nuclear capability but do not have a permanent seat being Pakistan, India, Israel, and North Korea. So should some of these countries also be included in the P5 to make it P7 and bring more stability and rationality to the powers given to P5, who in most cases cannot really work together and oppose each other using their Veto card.
Humor differs greatly from country to country. In this PowerPoint, I consider the humor styles of Afghanistan, Africa, Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hawaii, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Palestine, Paraguay, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Scotland, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, and Ukraine. In all of these countries, there are books, and organizations, and conferences, and seminars to study the humor of these particular countries. Please contact me if you would like to receive a list of humor scholars in any of the above countries.

I am reading about Neanderthals, and also happened to go over the migration of Native Americans to the American continent. The ice age that lowered the sea level by 400 feet and allowed that migration. Was there any similar land bridge events before that?
If so, and the Neanderthals were active well before "modern humans", would they have migrated to the America's before? Say 40,000 years ago or 80,000 or 120,000, or 200,000+?
It is hard to search because all anyone on the web wants to talk about is the last ice age. "Our" ice age.
I am not being facetious. This question seemed interesting enough to share. I could just add it to my personal list of thousands of such questions. But ResearchGate is maturing and growing every day. It ought to be a collaborative site.
Could Neanderthals could have crossed during the last 250,000 years?
I found this page at https://www.e-education.psu.edu/earth107/node/1506 where its says "last 20,000 years" but, thankfully, the chart of sea level goes back 140,000 years. At least it was narrower. Would it have frozen over? Could it have ice intermittently (ice islands, ice sheets, frozen areas)?
This is not something I know about that well. But it seems to me there have been many periods where humans (our humans) paddled and made their way across waters. And where ice might make a difference. Or maybe Neanderthals, so well adapted for cold, just loved to paddle long distance through the ice. The Bering Strait varies in depth from 100 to 165 feet (today). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bering_Strait
So where might such adventurers have wanted to live in their new continent? Probably caves? Probably Alaska? I don't know. I am not ever sure how to go about it. So I am asking this large and thoughtful group, if anyone has some ideas?
I just ordered all the Jean Auel books again. I have not read them in a long time. Her Neanderthals were a bit hidebound and brutish. (Pardon me, Jean). But Bruniquel Cave is about 176,500 years ago. And they had fire, organization, tents, strength and purpose. If they were smart enough to build a shelter inside a cave, it seems they knew how to stay warm and comfortable.
Early Neanderthal constructions deep in Bruniquel Cave in southwestern France
I don't know. I think it could be important. I think it could be fun.

I searched "Neanderthals in North America" and came up with this page, but it requires registration or pay.

This is so confusing. But 130,000 years ago in California sounds about right. That is 46,500 years after Bruniquel. I once walked 2700 miles when I got my first Fitbit. Over a long time, but steady, 10-20 miles a day. If people could go, so would other species (reindeer, elk, moose, bear, sloths, mammoths, birds, etc etc etc. Plants?).

There is a lot going on. But it is scattered over many sites, publishers, groups, individuals, styles and methods.
A colleague is interested in the problem of mega-fires. If there are scientific papers for the United States, Australia or France, there is little research for South America. In France, a mega fire can be identified from 1,000 ha, in the United States or Australia from 10,000 ha.
Are there any studies in South America (e.g. Chile)?
Are there objective criteria for defining a mega fire?
Demographic decline is a chronic and endemic problem in the Alps, from south-eastern France to upper Slovenia.
Low birth-rate and outbound migration are the major causes.
But there may be some cases of rural areas or towns where the demographic decline has been averted thanks to long-term policy measures.
Where are those cases?
Thanks for answering.

I'm a firtst year student in the Bachelor of Social Sciences at the VUB. I'm doing a liturature study about a subtopic of the Brexit. My subtopic is: The UK-EU relations in history. To go even more specific, I'm researching the relation between 2 specific countries in a specific time period, namely the 20th century and the Franco-British relation. The relation between the United Kingdom and France must have an underlying explanation that the Brexit happened. At the start of the EU, the UK wasn't included and was only a fan of the NAVO. When they wanted to join in the sixties, Charles de Gaulle used his Veto right 2 times against the British membership.

The economic success of north Italian city states was accompanied by great art, which continued or functioned alongside a wealthy Catholic Church. The equal success experienced in the United Provinces (Netherlands) in the 17th century based on independence from the great powers of Spain and France and an early eastern empire, produced some of the greatest art and artists that have ever lived. Is economic success necessary for great art?
We recently undertook a thorough mapping of the various measures that support energy-intensive industries (steel, cement, chemistry, ...) in Flanders. As part of our work on the industrial climate transition.
We are now looking for similar analyses of other countries, notably France, Germany, the Netherlands and other European member states. So far, the results has been relatively meagre, but we suspect that many such studies have not been published through academi channels, nor in English. So we've probably missed a lot.
Has anyone come across such reports/data sets/... ? We are interested in measures related to: their energy and fuel use, tax breaks, ETS-related compensation schemes, (green) investment subsidies, other environmentally relevant supports/subsidies, ... .
According to the Academy of Sciences of France (2011) "Peer review has long been the only way to evaluate researchers. It retains an irreplaceable value for appreciating the scientific contribution of a researcher in terms of originality. of thought, quality of work, conceptual and technological innovation, school creation and outreach in general.
However, this evaluation poses practical problems linked to the cumbersome nature of an in-depth examination of the files, amplified by the excessive number of evaluations requested from all sides. In addition, in many cases, peer review can be blamed for
a certain subjectivity, aggravated by the sometimes insufficient competence of certain evaluators as well as by potential conflicts or communities of interest, group effects or favoritism of any kind. All of these ethical questions should be the subject of
written statement by the evaluators, as proposed by the Academy in its report to the Minister of July 8, 2009.
The fact remains that bibliometrics can in no way replace qualitative evaluation by peers, that is to say by experts in the discipline who could however use it with all the necessary precautions. as a decision support tool.
I am in search of those who are familiar with the French & European societies at the end of 1700s to join me in writing a book as my co-authors.
The book is on Marie Antoinette. Looking at her from different angles (psychoanalysis, her effects today on different parts of the world, queen of fashion and endless many more).
My 1st chapter which is researched historic non-fiction biography is almost finished. I want others to add chapters to the book> Chapters will be published under your names.
Academic knowledge of English is a must, French is helpful. Knowing the history of France in 1700s is a must.
Depuis quelques temps les contestations et les protestations s'intensifient sur l'utilisation du franc CFA qui pour certains appauvrit les pays utilisant cette monnaie.
Seulement n'y a-t-il pas de réformes préalables à entrevoir? on sait bien que les structures productives et industrielles de ces pays sont quasiment embryonnaires. Ainsi n'y a-t-il pas lieu de reformer ces structures avant de penser à une "monnaie nouvelle"?
Different experiences occurring historically lead to some differences when considering different countries. What could be the reasons for these differences?
For example, the three countries which experience a revolution in the past (France, Turkey, Japan) in comparison, have different levels of political polarization, despite similar historical experience. What could be the reasons for this?
When a polarization scale is made; Turkey, France, Japan ranking Is it possible?
For the world is unaware of the fact that Zwicky was right in discovering the expansion-free explanation of Hubble’s cosmological redshift law that very same year. Zwicky got confirmed later by the discovery of Cryodynamics, the sister discipline to deterministic Thermodynamics.
One major consequence is
- No Big Bang in defiance of 91 years of cosmology.
The other is
- No CERN safety so the most sophisticated experiment of history, the LHC at CERN, needs to be reassessed.
This means that
- Zwicky retrieved can save all life
This state of collective emergency applies for almost a decade by now.

Lazare Carnot, the father of Sadi Carnot who laid the foundations of thermodynamics with his 1824 monograph on the motive power of heat, authored the 1786 Essai sur les machines en général. Since Sadi Carnot is said to have used some of his father's ideas in his 1824 monograph, for historical reasons (at least) it would be interesting to read the 1824 monograph in view of the 1786 essai. Hence the question: is there an English translation? If so, where?
The 1786 work can be found online at the BnF: Bibliothèque nationale de France.

I have this hydrogen sulfate salt of a molecule, that i obtained a single crystal of it
The single crystal was sent to be analysed by single crystal XRD in France, i received the results and the crystal did diffract, but i noticed that there is some extra atoms: two oxygens and one hydrogen (13OB,O14B, H14B)
I have an idea of my own (a thought am not sure if its even scientific): the extra molecules are actually O13A, O14A, H14, but they vbirate/vibrated causing them to shift position to 13OB,O14B, H14B
Any ideas about an explanation or the cause ? can i still publish this structure even with the extra atoms ?
Ps: I know that he engineer who passed them is competent because we worked with him before on many single crystals and everything was smooth.

'Meditationes philosophicae de nonnullis ad poema pertinentibus' of 1735 works out esthetics as a particular discipline of sensual knowledge. The term itself appeared the first time in the unfinished work 'Aestetica' in 1750.
The Neuro foundation in the UK has recently been asked by NICE if it would like to nominate specialists in neurofibromatosis for a guideline on paediatric pituitary adenoma. The is presumably because a publication search has resulted in a potential association. A review from 2016 substantiates this but evidence is based mainly on a small number of case reports starting on 1964 from France. Taken a current population of Europe and North America of around 1.1 billion there will currently be close to 300,000 with NF1. With a lifetime risk of 0.27% in the general population 780 of these might be expected to develop a PA by chance. A few case reports is therefore hardly Causal evidence. In the highly specialised English NF1 service that covers a population of about 14, 000 nf1 patients we have seem no evidence for an increase. Unless anyone out there has good epidemiological evidence for an association it is important to prevent a guideline stating that children should be considered for nf1 if they have a Pa. Otherwise parents of the 20% with one or two cafe au lait patches will be frightened by being referred to am expert for consideration of having nf1. It is really important that associations of not uncommon conditions in case reports are not over interpreted as Causal and that association is based on proper Epidemiology. Even this may produce a spurious false positive as nf1 patients are more likely to have an asymptomatic tumour picked because of increased likelihood of getting a cranial MRI scan.

In order to complete a survey on the role and impact of iconographic supports in French Language of Integration textbooks for migrants arriving in France, I intend to ask questions directly to the learners concerned.
The aim being to see if the images choosen for these textbooks are used (by the teachers and the learners), if they are pertinent and effective and what cultural messages they are carrying.
I would also appreciate to compare the analysis I'm doing on iconographic supports in french textbooks with other foreign language textbooks especially made for migrants.
Are you interested in Medical and Veterinary Entomology as well as Global Health?
An Entomology Summer School, entitled “Hands on’ Course on Arthropods of Medical and Veterinary Significance: A global perspective, from theory to practice”, will be held from the 26th till the 30th of August 2019 at the National Vet School of Toulouse (ENVT), France.
Please find the complete programme leaflet attached to this message.
The course will encompass topics such as arthropod-borne diseases, resistance in arthropod populations, control tools, principles of laboratory rearing and morphological identification of arthropods of medical and veterinary importance (i.e. mosquitoes, flies, sand flies, fleas, ticks, mites, etc.).
The course targets entomologists, postgraduate students in this field, , post-doctoral scientists ACVM and EVPC residents, pest control professionals and the like.
Applications to attend will be accepted until the 31st of March.
See you in Toulouse?!
The British periodical "Truth" published in its 1890 Christmas edition a cartoon entitled "The Kaiser's Dream" . In the cartoon, the Kaiser imagines a transformed Europe. Most of the nations which in 1890 were led by crowned heads had been replaced by republics. Some republics lay within familiar borders (e.g. "British Republic"). Others were fragmented (e.g. the "German Republics"). But Russia had been transformed into a "desert" ("Russian Desert"). Was the 1917 Russian Revolution the first stage in the roll-out of a long-planned Western regime-change project? If so, was the project's aim to use communism as a means of impeding Russian industrialization?
More proximate is the circumstance that in April 1917 Germany facilitated the transit across Germany in a sealed railway carriage of Lenin and other Bolsheviks. From Germany's wartime perspective, they were enemy aliens. Upon Lenin's arrival in Petrograd, he called for Russia's immediate withdrawal from the war. Russian withdrawal would have the strategic effect of enabling Germany to concentrate its efforts on the Western Front. The related Treaty of Brest-Litovsk followed in March 1918. By its terms, Russia not only withdrew from the war but also ceded industrialized regions to Germany. Was Lenin a German agent?
It is arguable that the Britain and France fomented the First World War with the intention of using Germany as a sword with which to strike at Russia, their nominal ally in the Triple Entente. Did Germany, having been lured into war, then opportunistically exploit the Bolsheviks as a means of closing the onerous Eastern Front?
Thanks in advance for shedding light on these and related matters.
I propose a discussion limited to political philosophy.
Can the Academic Community help understand social turmoil in France and propose a rational answer? Or help understand one aspect of the French crisis of the “Gilets jaunes”? Is French president Emmanuel Macron, while presented as educated and intelligent, in fact a simple, even “second class » intellectual at the wrong place ?
He was an average student, never involved in any academic achievements, with no university career, no publications and no evidence of any particular intellectual, cultural or scientific achievements. In history, number of statesmen were similar to Mr. Macron in this respect. Except from one: Many advanced sound arguments, demonstrated common sense and even when not successful, majority of them demonstrated practical wisdom (phrenesis). Here bellow is one short list of the numerous problems of Mr. Macron:
1. Affaire Benalla
2. Stop complaining
3. "Cross the street" to find work
4. Stubborn Gauls
Speaking in Denmark on a diplomatic visit in August, Macron quipped that "the Lutheran people" had embraced "the transformations" of recent years, in contrast to "the Gaul refractory to change."
5. "Crazy dough"
"Look, we are putting crazy dough into minimum social benefits, and people are still poor. They don't get out of it. The people are born poor and remain poor,"
"I am of an absolute determination, and I will cede nothing, not to the slackers, not to the cynics, and not to the extremes," Macron proclaimed at the French School of Athens.
"They are certain ones who, instead of creating havoc, would do better by going to see if they cannot get jobs," he told a local official in November after being greeted by protesters at the opening of a college for construction workers.
7. People who are "nothing"
“A train station, it's a place where one encounters people who are succeeding and people who are nothing," Macron declared. "Because it's a place where one passes, because it's a place we share."
Then, I would add:
8. Declare “French culture does not exist”.
9. His “futuristic” economical measures systematically impoverish the most disadvantaged.
10. His English is just supportable with heavy accent. (French intellectuals often speak much better English).
11. His funeral speeches seem to be his better side.
12. His so called “program” contained the principles, and just a few concrete measures – and this is now contested.

14. The present Gilets jaunes crisis is mainly caused by Macrons personality.
The French president — a Parisian-educated Énarque and ex-Rothschild banker — is often accused of being out of touch with voters and even his attempts to bridge the gap fall flat.

Do you know analogous studies to these ones? In different countries.

I wrote some time ago (I am retired now) a paper based on a long collaboration with the nuclear industry in France. It was due to be published in a Journal named Aesthesis which did not go beyond the 4th issue. The sujet is on the nuclear choreagraphy (you will understand if you read it) . It was censored by the French nuclear company so it is only two third translated in English.
I am no longer eager to be quoted about an unpublished article, but it may contains some usefull ideas. So it is is of interest to you let me know at email@example.com.

I would like to ask if someone knows the details regarding the laws related to fossil collecting in France. Is there any prohibition or authorization necessary to be aware before planning a paleontological fieldwork?
Thank you very much.
I find this project very interesting. I was wandering if you had an article about the project, or even an article dealing with some of the topics in your book from 2008. I am a Swedish researcher working in FRance, and I work on child bilingualism and child second language acquisition
Thank you very much in advance
I need some help in the identification of these fungal ascospores evidenced in a sediment originating from the "Caune Arago" cave (eastern Pyrenees, France) and dated to 400 000 years ago approximately. There are 2 types: Tauta 12 and Tauta 14. Please see attached files.
I really thank you for your help.
