Have you ever wondered about the smoking habits of the French? This doesn’t cross our mind often, but it should. Other countries smoking habits can tell us a lot about our own personal habits. We can analyze and view from a neutral standpoint and make decisions based off of those observations that determine our own lives. French smoking habits matter to everyone and can lead to decisions about your own life, so you might want to start checking out the French.
In France almost everyone smokes. I saw this first hand when I traveled there just a few months ago. There are people smoking in the street, at home, in the cafe, and some even at the grocery store. Smoking is a large part of French culture and they have developed quite a few strange ideas about smoking that we could easily integrate into our own culture and perhaps learn from. To fully understand the French smoking culture I will first need to go into the detail of their overall culture, or at least one aspect. The French love to be healthy. Their entire cities and country is based upon the fact that everyone is healthy. Most people walk places, everyone eats healthy food a lot, and there aren’t many ways to get bad food in France. This is not a bad thing to have in any country and a lot of countries could learn from this. However, that is not the main point. It is because they are so healthy that their smoking habits have recently changed. Their smoking habits are much different than ours, but we could easily learn.
The French smoke healthy. Can you believe that? It is hard to think of, but they actually do smoke healthy. A lot of French can say this because they smoke e cigarettes. These e cigarettes don’t have any of the harsh chemicals that regular cigarettes do, but they have all the nicotine. Now you may be asking yourself why they would smoke something that only has an addictive chemical. Well it is because of custom. The French have always smoked and very well might smoke forever. They simply smoke because it is what they have always done. However, now they have this healthy alternative and many are taking advantage of it and using it for their purposes. We could easily do this as well, we just have to start doing it.
E cigarettes are around for everyone to use and can easily help you in your cigarette habit. There are plenty of e cigarettes around and with a little bit of e cigarette brand comparison you can find the perfect one for you. We all have habits and customs that we follow, but now you can have one less unhealthy habit by turning it into an e cigarette habit. You will get the same nicotine and smoke effects, but none of the bad chemicals and cancer causing agents. We can learn from the French and everyone else, we just have to pay attention.

Paris is known as the most romantic city in the world. The city is also know as the city of lights because at night the city is lit up everywhere creating a romantic and beautiful scene not to be missed. Couples were embracing under street lights and I suddenly realized that this is the city that I wanted to spend my honeymoon in.
Because I am single, and have just started on line dating, I decided that maybe this city of romance could give me some tips to finding my future mate. Maybe I could even put my ideas into a blog and call it “online dating tip’s“. Everyone in this city seemed to be in love and I vowed to know their secrets.
Outdoor cafe’s dot the streets in Paris and couples can be seen sitting watching the world go by as they sip great French wine. They seem to be in no hurry to leave and just being together seems to be entertainment enough. Maybe Americans can take a lesson from these French Lovers.
There are boats that cruise the seine every day and the tours go on into the evening. I decided to take a tour and the scenery was amazing. We passed the Eiffel tower which is lit up with tiny white lights and makes a stunning silhouette on the skyline. The beauty of the architecture of the buildings makes you think of the history of this city and the many people who have lived and loved there over the years. What a perfect way to spend an evening. Nothing could make it better than being with someone to love.
After a breakfast of croissants and coffee with warm milk. It was time to see what the city looks like in the daylight Paris is a beautiful city day or night and it is easy to see the sense of family as I watched mothers strolling their babies through the many parks that this city features. I love the relaxed style that the French have and would like to take this relaxed romantic way of life back home with me.
No trip to Paris would be complete without a trip to the Louvre and a day spent there is not long enough. It is mind boggling to know that so many of these paintings were done hundreds of years before my birth. There are many restaurants in this famous art museum and taking a long lunch can give you the energy for exploring the museum in the afternoon. A month spent in this building would not be enough. many of the paintings are done with romantic themes, another reason this is called the most romantic city in the world.
There were so many sites that I visited, And I cannot wait to visit again. This time I hope to have a special someone with me to enjoy all the romance that Paris has to offer. I think I will work on my online dating tips as I fly home to start my online dating adventure.

As the global economy grows and growing powers like China and India require more energy, countries are looking for ways to produce green energy and become much more efficient at energy production. France is trying to lead the way in green energy and has set some rather ambitious goals for the future. Even though there has been rather lackluster financial support of green energy projects in France, that isn’t stopping the country from moving forward with its goals to produce around 25 percent of its energy from renewable energy sources by the year 2020.
France is a country that has traditionally got a lot of its power from nuclear energy. It has lead the way in nuclear energy production, but now France wants to lead the way in renewable energy production. This shift from nuclear energy to renewable energy is going to cost a lot of money. It is this cost of switching from nuclear energy and oil that is slowing down the transition to renewable energy. In order to become the new leader in green energy, France must work out how to finance the transition.
France has currently already installed around 6GW of wind power capacity. They have a target of 19GW set for the year of 2020, which means they need to add about 1.5GW of wind power capacity a year to achieve this goal. Wind power is a very efficient form of green energy and can really help with France’s transition if they can get enough wind turbines put up. There was only 1.1 GW of wind power installed in the year 2010. It seems that a lot of wind turbine projects in France are held back by systematic appeals. These appeals can take upwards of two to three years to resolve and are hurting the transition to green energy.
Nicolas Sarkozy, president of France, announced in January that there would be offshore wind farms that would generate 3.5GW of wind power, but they would not be available until 2015.
Another way that France is trying to go green is with solar power. France intends to have 5 million solar thermal units installed in buildings in the country by the year 2020, around 80% of these solar units will be installed in residential homes. Solar power is getting less expensive to utilize and should help France achieve its goals of going green.
France hopes to lead the way with green energy and they have a plan on how to get things done. The people of France want this and so does the government. Perhaps they want to keep their county looking beautiful so it can resemble Pulau Tioman and not go the way of countries that trash the environment for their energy supply.

The “Choose the Future: Education for Sustainable Development Conference” was held November 26-28, 2008, in Winnipeg, Canada with approximately 500 participants. The conference was co-chaired by Dr. Christine McDonald and Mr. Robert Anderson. The international conference was held as part of the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005-2014).
The conference audience included educators who intended to incorporate sustainability principles into their teaching and leaders in business and government who wanted to integrate these ideas into practice with employees and interested parties.
Lonnie Dupre, a polar explorer, was the first keynote speaker of the evening on November 26. He did a video presentation on his explorations and observations on Arctic Change.
The conference was opened on the morning of November 27 by the Hon. Lloyd Axworthy, president and vice-chancellor of the University of Winnipeg. He highlighted the complex issues of climate change and challenged his audience to find new and creative solutions to sustainability problems in order to move forward on these issues.
Over the course of the two day conference, participants attended six keynote sessions and 22 concurrent workshops and panel sessions.
The second keynote address was by Chuck Hopkins, UNESCO chair for ESD, who focused on the role of education in sustainability development. He emphasized that education on these topics included environmental as well as social and economic dimensions using both formal and informal education models. He also reviewed the four thrusts of ESD: public awareness, educational access, educational reorientation, and training.
The third keynote speaker was Samantha Nutt, Founder and Executive Director of War Child Canada. This speaker focused on the essential role of teachers in educating students towards individual responsibility for sustainability.
The fourth speaker was Bob Willard, author and business consultant, who focused on the role of business in sustainability and how business can partner with environmental organizations.
The fifth speaker was Wade Davis, Explorer-in-Residence, National Geographic Society. Mr. Davis is an anthropologist and ethnobotanist and spoke on the importance of travel in order to respect and understand different cultural orientations, especially indigenous cultures.
The final keynote speaker was Patrick Moor, Founding Member of Greenpeace, Environmental Consultant and Founder of Greenspirit for a Sustainable Future. Dr. Moore described his journey away from confrontational social activism towards greater political consensus on environmental issues. He discussed the controversies on environmental issues and reviewed the best energy sources for the future. He concluded by stating that a combination of nuclear and renewable energy is the best way to replace fossil fuel dependence for global use.
The 22 concurrent session offered a wide range of sessions focusing on new educational approaches for ESD and sustainability programs for industry and business groups.
