France just banned advertisers from photoshopping models

France just banned advertisers from photoshopping models | Buzz Francophone | Scoop.it
The fact that the photographs we see of models in magazines and on billboards are usually digitally-enhanced is a societal norm we have come to accept. However, in France, this will no longer be the case. In a bid to tackle misleading promotions, French advertisers will now be fined for editing model's bodies without indicating that the image has been digitally-altered, according to new rulings in place from Sunday.

France’s Search for Women Fit for the Panthéon - The New Yorker

France’s Search for Women Fit for the Panthéon - The New Yorker | Buzz Francophone | Scoop.it
Carved into the façade of the Panthéon, the huge domed stone structure in Paris’s Latin Quarter, are the words “Aux grands hommes, la patrie reconnaissante.” “To the great men, a grateful fatherland.” This is France’s secular temple to itself, a curious necropolis conceived during the French Revolution to celebrate a new cult of the nation around the bodies of its heroes. Of the seventy-three people buried in the Panthéon, however, only two are women: Sophie Berthelot, who is there as the wife of the chemist Marcellin Berthelot; and Marie Curie, whose scientific work earned two Nobel Prizes, one for physics, in 1903, and chemistry, in 1911. While Curie is also buried with her husband, Pierre, with whom she shared her Nobel in physics, she was panthéonisé for her own achievements—albeit not until sixty years after her death.

Tour the streets of Paris with those who know them best: the homeless

Tour the streets of Paris with those who know them best: the homeless | Buzz Francophone | Scoop.it

What better way to visit the streets of Paris than with people who have lived in them, literally.

Meet Vincent, a 39-year-old homeless man who was down and out six months ago but now squires tourists through little-known lanes as he tells their stories, past and present....Vincent is paid €10 ($13) an hour with a contract to work 10 hours a week. Since February, he has taken around 200 visitors but more importantly, said Sardouk, the job helped "put him back on the right path".

Once the summer tourist season ends, the next step for Vincent will be a training course for a new career in community outreach programs
