Roundabouts in France are becoming more numerous as a traffic calming measure. Some garden designers develop their creativity. As a rule, a roundabout is designed so that it represents the regional character of the place. Sometimes it's just a creative outburst of a horticultural designer like here in Beaucaire. The figure was made from driftwood by the Rhone river. The cactuses are said to remind the many North Africans in the city of their original home. are said to remind the many North Africans in the city of their original home.edit.
The Georges du Gardon offers walks in the heart of unspoiled nature. You will first stroll on the Gard hills, and then join the banks of the Gardon. its a bit over 10 km long walk. Because most of the visitors to this region are very careful and responsible: nowhere there is dirt, plastic, empty bottles, washing machines, refrigerators to see or simply lying around. But you need solid shoes.
Also: It is a rather spring or fall hike because the route has very few places in the shade. It is therefore better to avoid the often stifling summer heat in this region.Sure you can go swimming in the river Gard. Its water is coming from the cevennes mountains and is even during the hot summer really refreshing.
Mistrust in politicians and the mainstream media has reached new heights. See pages and pages of inflammatory language immersed in bias, bigotry and intolerance. This cocktail of social media-driven fake news and mainstream media misinformation is a new form of cynicism that threatens to drive away the last vestiges of their once loyal audiences.
A report by Reuters found that although the next decade in journalism is likely to be “defined by increasing regulation of the internet”, most editorial bosses are sceptical about whether policy interventions will actually help them. More than half (56 per cent) of editorial bosses said they did not think changes in the law would make any difference in 2020. A quarter said they would hurt the industry, and just 18 per cent said they would help. In the end, the report reflects on the simple fact, confirmed by their own, that ‘facts’ is not what the industry has focused on and it’s just hurting.
In my irrelevant opinion all these editorial monks better watch out when finally being rocked by the next wave of technological disruption from AI-driven automation, big data, and new visual and voice-based interfaces...They will quickly have no ideas for their sermon.
