Documentaire: Dérives

De 1990 à 2010, le mouvement étudiant a fait l'objet de plus de 1000 arrestations.


En 2012, en 6 mois seulement, ce nombre a été multiplié par 3.
Nous dédions ce film aux arrêtéEs et aux blesséEs du conflit.

"Dérives" a pour but premier de remettre certaines pendules à l'heure quant aux dérives policières et médiatiques qui ont marqué le Printemps érable.

Military-Ruled Egypt Opposes US Strike on #Syria - Juan Cole

 

The newly assertive Egyptian military and the civilian transitional government in Egypt are helping make President Obama’s life difficult. Likely it was Egypt that blocked the Arab League from calling for intervention against the Syrian regime despite its condemnation of Damascus for using chemical weapons.

Egyptian foreign minister Nabil Fahmy rejected a Western strike on Syria. He said that no country could attack another save in self-defense or in the case of a UN Security Council resolution authorizing the use of force. The military-dominated government in Cairo despises political Islam and therefore doesn’t like the rebel forces. It now tilts toward the Arab Nationalist line of the Syrian Baath.

Leftist Egyptian politician Hamdeen Sabahi called on all Arabs to unite against a Western attack on Syria. He warned that if Syria were hit, Egypt would be next. This is paranoid stuff; the US has no intention of bombing Egypt!

Some Egyptian officials have criticized the US for not having a clear strategy for ‘the day after’.

Hosni Mubarak and Muhammad Morsi might have cooperated with the US on a strike. Those days are long past.

Just in time to celebrate Open Education Week, here comes a new initiative, the School of Open, a learning environment focused on increasing our understanding of “openness” and the benefits it brings to creativity and education in the digital age.

Developed by the collaborative education platform Peer to Peer University(P2PU) with organizational support from Creative Commons, the School of Open aims to spread understanding of the power of this brave new world through free online classes.

We hear about it all the time: Universal access to research, education and culture—all good things, without a doubt—made possible by things like open source software, open educational resources and the like.

But what are these various communities and what do they mean? How can we all learn more and get involved?

School of Open has rolled the conversation back to square one so that understanding the basics is easy. Through a list of new courses created by users and experts, people can learn more about what “openness” means and how to apply it. There are stand-alone courses on copyright, writing for Wikipedia, the collaborative environment of open science, and the process behind making open video.

These free courses start March 18 (sign up by clicking the “start course” button by Sunday, March 17):

Présentation de l'ouvrage

Les cultes égyptiens ont fasciné les hommes des Lumières. S'appuyant sur des sources grecques tardives, certains ont cru y déceler la trace d'une religion double : parallèlement au culte polythéiste partagé par tous aurait existé une religion monothéiste, réservée aux initiés. Au XVIIIe siècle, les sociétés secrètes, notamment franc-maçonnes, où s'organisait le culte de la raison dans une Europe soumise au joug de l'absolutisme politique et de l'orthodoxie chrétienne, ont puisé dans les cultes à mystères une source d'inspiration et le modèle de leur propre fonctionnement. Centrant son analyse sur la conception d'une religion à deux niveaux, religio duplex, Jan Assmann en montre l'élaboration et les prolongements jusqu'à l'époque contemporaine, où elle permet de penser l'articulation entre les traditions religieuses particulières et une religion universelle. Il offre ainsi une réflexion virtuose et extraordinairement féconde sur les racines de notre culture moderne qui, en bien des manières et même indirectement, plongent jusque dans la civilisation de l'Egypte ancienne.

Aubier, 2013, 412 pages


*********************************

 

"Dans ce livre virtuose et lumineux, Jan Assmann explore le concept de religio duplex, 'religion double ', dont il fait un concept opératoire fondamental dans l'histoire desreligions. Le concept de religio duplex est élaboré à l'époque des Lumières. Au départ, il sert à désigner la coexistence dans l'Égypte ancienne d'une religion exotérique, polythéiste, pratiquée par tous, et d'une religion ésotérique, monothéiste, réservée aux seuls initiés. 
Les sociétés secrètes de l'Europe des Lumières, notamment la franc-maçonnerie, s'inspirent de cette religion ésotérique égyptienne. Dans les dernières décennies du XVIIIe siècle, la religio duplex reçoit une interprétation radicalement nouvelle : la distinction n'est plus entre religion exotérique et religion ésotérique, mais entre religion particulière et religion universelle. Tout être humain possède deux religions ; comme juif, musulman ou chrétien, une religion particulière, révélée dans une Écriture Sainte, et comme être humain, une religion universelle, révélée dans la nature et la simple raison. 
En ce sens, la religio duplex permet de penser notre époque où les cultures, et donc les religions de la terre se sont rapprochées d'une façon qui ne permet à aucune d'entre elles de se comprendre comme la seule en possession de vérités absolues et universelles. Dans notremonde globalisé, la religion n'a de place que comme une religion à deux niveaux, où chaque religion particulière s'articule à un universel ; pour Assmann, la version moderne de cette religion universelle chère auxphilosophes des Lumières s'incarne dans les 'droits de l'homme."(Evene)

Des milices islamistes apparaissent en Égypte

Des milices islamistes apparaissent en Égypte | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it

Pour combler le vide sécuritaire, des groupes formés par la Jamaa Islamiya entendent faire régner l'ordre.

Combien sont-ils? Nul ne le sait, mais leur percée est source d'inquiétude enÉgypte . Voilà plusieurs jours que la presse locale évoque l'existence de ces nouveaux miliciens islamistes qui menacent de faire la loi pour répondre au vide sécuritaire provoqué par la récente grève des policiers. Sur une vidéo qui circule sur YouTube, on les voit parader à moto dans les rues d'Assiout, en Haute-Égypte.

L'organisation à l'origine de ces comités populaires religieux n'est autre que la Jamaa Islamiya, un ex-groupe djihadiste converti à la politique depuis la chute deMoubarak  et l'élection d'un islamiste à la présidence. Contacté par Le Figaro, Assem Abdel Maged, membre du bureau politique de la Jamaa Islamiya, déclare sans détours: «Que les fonctionnaires de police qui entendent poursuivre leur grève sachent qu'ils ne retrouveront pas leur poste une fois que nous aurons pris la relève. Une chose est sûre: nous ne laisserons pas la situation sécuritaire se détériorer.» Il fait là référence à cette nouvelle vague de violence suscitée la semaine dernière par le verdict du procès lié à une bousculade meurtrière, l'année dernière, dans le stade de Port-Saïd . Déjà impopulaire sous Moubarak, et aujourd'hui accusés par les opposants de servir de bras armé au président Morsi , les policiers ont fini par déclarer forfait dans la cité portuaire au motif qu'ils étaient injustement instrumentalisés par le pouvoir. Depuis, leur grève s'est étendue à d'autres villes du pays, dont Asiout. «Là-bas, précise Assem Abdel Maged, nous avons commencé à organiser des comités permettant de combler le vide et de maintenir l'ordre.» Quand on l'interroge sur le nombre, la formation et l'armement de ces nouveaux miliciens, il se contente de répondre: «Avec l'aide de Dieu, nous protégerons le peuple.» À Assiout, des témoins racontent avoir déjà vu ces miliciens à l'action à certains carrefours, où ils remplacent les agents de circulation. Également repérés dans d'autres villes, dont Suez et Minya, on ignore à ce jour s'ils ont mené des perquisitions. «Pour résoudre la crise sécuritaire, il faut des actes et pas seulement des mots», prévient cependant Assem Abdel Maged, en s'appuyant sur un obscur article du code pénal, récemment mis en exergue par le procureur général du Caire, et qui permettrait l'arrestation de «voyous» par des civils.

There's Nothing Wrong With Islamic Finance As Long As It Really Is Islamic Finance

There's Nothing Wrong With Islamic Finance As Long As It Really Is Islamic Finance | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it

This is a fascinating little interview with Timur Kuran, an expert in Islamic finance. The point being made is that Islamic styles of finance aren’t, in fact, all that different from the “western” type that we are used to. And in fact, in certain situations, being “more Islamic” would actually be beneficial, work better than those traditional western systems.

The heart of the comments about the banking system are here:
Whether the Qur’an bans all forms of interest, or specifically its exploitative forms, was a matter of controversy in the early decades of Islam. It still remains in doubt. What is crystal clear is that what passes as Islamic finance is anything but interest-free. Almost all of the Islamic banks in existence, including those in Egypt, charge their borrowers what any economist would call interest; they also pay their depositors interest as a matter of course. This is not surprising, for interest continues to provide tangible benefits to both lenders and depositors.

In economic terms, while the banks don’t charge or pay what they call interest, the effects are that they do indeed charge and pay interest. Those of us who have dealt with such banks, in however minor a way in my own case, know this to be true. The really interesting, to me at least, point made is the following:

"Having suggested that in its present form Islamic banking would not solve any of Egypt’s pressing economic problems, let me acknowledge that Islamic banks might bring benefits by abiding by their stated mode of operation. The charters of Islamic banks instruct them to lend on the basis of “profit and loss sharing” rather than for a fixed return. They are to operate like the venture capital companies that have financed the global high-tech industry. Venture capital firms lend to promising entrepreneurs, for a share of any profits, without regard to collateral, track record, or connections. They take genuine risks, losing money when investments that they finance fail".

With its young population and high unemployment, Egypt desperately needs more venture capital. That is why genuine Islamic finance could bring major benefits to Egypt.

 

That is, it would be a good idea if these banks, or some of them, stopped copying the western model and actually moved over to the VC model they’re supposed to be based upon. (...)

plosone - http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0048029

 

(Abstract) In contrast with animal communication systems, diversity is characteristic of almost every aspect of human language. Languages variously employ tones, clicks, or manual signs to signal differences in meaning; some languages lack the noun-verb distinction (e.g., Straits Salish), whereas others have a proliferation of fine-grained syntactic categories (e.g., Tzeltal); and some languages do without morphology (e.g., Mandarin), while others pack a whole sentence into a single word (e.g., Cayuga). A challenge for evolutionary biology is to reconcile the diversity of languages with the high degree of biological uniformity of their speakers. Here, we model processes of language change and geographical dispersion and find a consistent pressure for flexible learning, irrespective of the language being spoken. This pressure arises because flexible learners can best cope with the observed high rates of linguistic change associated with divergent cultural evolution following human migration. Thus, rather than genetic adaptations for specific aspects of language, such as recursion, the coevolution of genes and fast-changing linguistic structure provides the biological basis for linguistic diversity. Only biological adaptations for flexible learning combined with cultural evolution can explain how each child has the potential to learn any human language.

Une équipe d'archéologues allemands a découvert des pièces manquantes des célèbres Colosses de Memnon | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it

 

The Egyptian minister of antiquities announces that a team of German archaeologists has discovered missing pieces belonging to the famed Colossi of Memnon. The statues, dating to roughly 1350 BC, were damaged in an earthquake during the Roman era.

The colossi are some of Egypt's oldest touristic attractions, drawing tourists since ancient times. The twin statues, over 18 meters (60 feet) tall each, are of Pharaoh Amenhotep III, who was worshipped as a deity. The statues are the only remains of a large temple that was built in memorial of the pharaoh.

Minister of Antiquities Mohammed Ibrahim says Sunday the team made the discovery in cooperation with archaeologists from Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities. He said the pieces belong to the belt of one statue, and the base of the other.

Secretary of State John Kerry opened his speech Friday by describing the horrors victims of the chemical weapon attack had suffered, including twitching, spasms and difficulty breathing. Attempting to drive the point home, Kerry referenced a photograph used by the BBC, illustrating a child jumping over hundreds of dead bodies covered in white shrouds. The Secretary of State forgot to mention, however, that this photo was taken during US intervention in Iraq back in 2003.

The photo which was later retracted was meant to depict victims who allegedly succumbed to the effects of chemical weapons launched by Assad’s regime.

However, it was later exposed that the photograph used had been taken in 2003 in Iraq.

Le 22 février 1943, trois étudiants allemands d'une vingtaine d'années sont guillotinés dans la prison de Stadelheim, près de Munich. Leur crime est d'avoir dénoncé le nazisme dans le cadre d'un mouvement clandestin, «La Rose blanche» (Die Weiße Rose en allemand). Comment, de juin 1942 à février 1943 une poignée de jeunes étudiants chrétiens ont-ils pu défendre les valeurs démocratiques au prix de leur vie ? Comment ont-ils pu diffuser six tracts incendiaires tout en écrivant le soir des slogans pacifistes et antinazis sur les murs de Munich ?

Egypt-actus's curator insight, March 15, 2013 11:09 AM

"Ancient Egyptian Administration" provides the first comprehensive overview of the structure, organization and evolution of the pharaonic administration from its origins to the end of the Late Period. The book not only focuses on bureaucracy, departments, and official practices but also on more informal issues like patronage, the limits in the actual exercise of authority, and the competing interests between institutions and factions within the ruling elite. Furthermore, general chapters devoted to the best-documented periods in Egyptian history are supplemented by more detailed onesdealing with specific archives, regions, and administrative problems. The volume thus produced by an international team of leading scholars will be an indispensable, up-to-date, tool of research covering a much-neglected aspect of pharaonic civilization.

Egypt to overhaul subsidized bread system

Egypt to overhaul subsidized bread system | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it

The Egyptian Ministry of Supply is preparing to introduce a new system to distribute subsidised bread to those who need it using national identification (ID) numbers.

A trial run is expected to begin in al-Fayoum province, and will be rolled out to the rest of the country after technical and logistical problems are identified and resolved, officials told Al-Shorfa.

Subsidised bread is currently rationed at 20 loaves per family per day at a cost of one Egyptian pound ($0.14). Non-subsidized bread is available at bakeries for 50 piasters ($0.07) per loaf.

"My family members and I take turns, depending on who is free, to stand in line for subsidised bread each day starting in the early morning hours," said Tawfiq Nagy, who heads a family of six.

"If we're late getting in line, we might miss out on getting our bread ration," he told Al-Shorfa.

When that happens, Nagy buys bread from unsubsidised bakeries, adding that "private bakery bread is bigger and of higher quality".

Nagy believes the subsidised bread distribution system needs to be regulated, as "neither the distribution mechanism is good nor is the quality of the bread acceptable".

Distribution based on the national ID number would prevent bakery owners or any other party that wishes to trade in subsidised bread from exploiting the system, he said.

The plan aims to eliminate waste and attempts by some bakery owners to sell bread on the black market, said Saleh Jaber, development advisor at the bakeries monitoring room at the Ministry of Supply.

This leads to low quality bread on the one hand, and a shortage in supply on the other, he said, forcing people to "buy bread from tourist bakeries, whose prices exceed their purchasing power".

A Flash Crash In The Bitcoin Market This Week Revealed The Currency's Biggest Problem

A Flash Crash In The Bitcoin Market This Week Revealed The Currency's Biggest Problem | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it
Confidence is key.

 

The Bitcoin market is booming.

The internet's favorite virtual currency is up over 230 percent since the beginning of the year and up 40 percent from Monday to Wednesday alone.

The latest leg up may be because it looks like the market may finally be going mainstream – now, U.S. banks are getting involved.

oAnth - "offene Ablage: nothing to hide"'s insight:

 

 

It's essential for all miners to enforce exactly the same rules about what counts as a valid block. If a client announces a block that half the network accepts and the other half rejects, the result could be a fork in the network. Different nodes could disagree about which transactions have occurred, potentially producing chaos.

That's what happened on Monday evening. A block was produced that the latest version of the Bitcoin software, version 0.8, recognized as valid but that nodes still running version 0.7 or earlier rejected.

The Italian Elections Prove That Austerity Is Not Working for Europe

The Italian Elections Prove That Austerity Is Not Working for Europe | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it
The outcome of the Italian elections should send a clear message to Europe’s leaders: the austerity policies that they have pursued are being rejected by voters. The European project, as idealistic as it was, was always a top-down endeavor.
