- France 24 : la nouvelle chaine d'infos 

France 24, la nouvelle chaine d'infos française, a été lancée la semaine dernière, en français et en anglais. Elle sera bientôt aussi en arabe, et vise à concurrencer CNN, la BBC et Al Jeezera.
http://www.france24.com
La chaine est encore en construction, et pour l'instant ce qui me plait est que l'on peut encore récupérer les vidéos...
Voici deux thèmes que j'ai remarqués : Fooding et Living on the Moon.

Fooding
On eTeachnet, our colleague F.W. Arbacette recommends this video about fooding (here to improve canteen food), ending with:
"That's 'le fooding' : the French no fool answer to regimented cuisine"
http://www.france24.com/france24Public/en/special-reports/20061206-CUISINE-SPECIAL-REPORT/FOODING_061203.html
There is no transcript, and the content about fooding isn't very informative, but I think it gives the world an interesting image of the French, especially the man eating and smoking...;)

To get more information read :
- this article written by an American, Moira Chambers, this summer on the Superchef blog : you find the origin of the word fooding and how it was coined, and also that San Pellegrino is a partner (that's why you see the bottle on the tables) and that it is a free buffet lunch, which explains why the man is standing and eating
http://www.superchefblog.com/2005/09/french-fooding-young-and-hungry.html
- and this article from "France Today" which focuses on the new vocabulary and offers explanations and translations for the new or trendy expression. For example : ringard = fuddy-duddy. (for advanced students and all those who want to keep up with the trend.)

You can also add the documents on this page from Séverine Magnin, including a video extract from a programme featuring Jamie Oliver cooking with Tom Cruise

Living on the Moon
In " The week in review" I found this report "US plan base on the moon" with a video. Interesting to include in a teaching unit about living together in the future, or new technologies...

To complement this article you can read:
- this article from the BBC : "how to set a base on the moon" (with a nice drawing presenting an oxygen factory)

- and this page from the NASA about "lunar base design" with lots of information, drawings, projects about the lunar base.
