anting a cup of tea has been used as an
analogy for sexual consent in a video released
as part of a police awareness campaign in the
UK. Thames Valley Police's "consent is everything"
campaign aims to educate people about the need to get
consent, rather than assume it has been given. It shows
how "ludicrous" it would be to force someone to drink tea
if they had turned it down or changed their mind. And it
tells the viewer not to pour tea down the throat of
someone unconscious.

Thames
La Tamise sous cocaïne
So much cocaine is being used in
London that traces of the white
powdered narcotic can be detected in
the River Thames, the Sunday Telegraph
newspaper revealed in November. An
investigation by the British newspaper
found that, after cocaine had passed
through users’ bodies and sewage
treatment plants, an estimated 2kg
— 80,000 lines — of the drug went
into the river each day. “Because of the long-term complications of cocaine use, we are looking
at a healthcare time bomb,” clinical toxicologist John Henry was quoted as saying.
A pig didn't fly last month
after it was removed
from a US Airways flight
out of Connecticut due to
its disruptive behaviour.
Jonathan Skolnik, a
passenger on the flight,
said he thought the
woman with the pig was
carrying a duffel bag
when she got on the
plane and headed
straight for the empty
seat next to him. "But it
turns out it wasn't a
duffel bag. We could
smell it and it was a pig
on a leash," he said. The
woman and the animal
eventually deplaned. The
company confirmed that
a passenger brought the
pig aboard as an
emotional support
animal. After the pig
became disruptive, she
was asked to leave, a
spokesperson said.

font ‘coacher’ pour acquérir le parfait accent... américain.

“the posture of the

She teaches how to
change “the way you

that the term “accent reduction” is a
misnomer. “Accent reduction is learning
an accent. It is learning an American

6. Of course, not everyone sees an accent as
something negative. Pawlitschek said that

is a lot of strong feeling there about the validity

on “pronunciation.” Loxley said that people

BOSTON, THE
WALKING CITY
Boston, la ville ou l’on marche
Fondée en 1630, Boston est la capitale du Massachusetts et la plus
grande ville de la Nouvelle-Angleterre. A la différence des grandes
métropoles américaines, le centre de la ville, peu étendu, a conservé de
nombreux édifices de l’époque coloniale et la manière la plus agréable d’en
découvrir les richesses est sans aucun doute la marche à pied. Voici
quelques bonnes adresses à ne pas manquer…
f you’re here on business but also looking
for pleasure, New York’s bluestocking
little sister has much to offer. For starters,
it is compact in size, so easy to negotiate on foot
(all the major sights are within
walking distance) and it is
jammed with new restaurants,
bars and clubs.
I
3. Boston sees sub-zero temperatures during
its winter months but come April and May the
mercury rises so visitors can enjoy fresh daily
highs of around 18C. Although be warned;
evenings can still be cool, so it is
always a good idea to pack a warm
winter jacket. This is also the time
when the city’s famous oaks begin
to bud and there are more of them
taking root in Boston’s least green
neighbourhoods.
Boston is
compact
in size
2 . Add to that the history
(Boston was the birthplace of
American Independence), its
learned pedigree (the city is
home to Harvard), and mix in
some of America’s best mall
and street shopping (with just 5 per cent sales
tax), its world-class museums, and panoply of
new attractions, and this Massachusetts city
is hard to beat.

at Nine Zero, arguably one of the city’s finest
boutique offerings. The Living Room lobby’s
winged, high-backed leather chairs and boldlystriped teacup seats, create a wow-factor, where
hotel guests enjoy a nightly complimentary
wine reception.
8. Boston has long been famous for its culinary
fare. If you are looking for hot tables, Barbara
Lynch, a born and bred Bostonian and one of
America’s top chefs has a dazzling array of city
eateries under her apron, including No.9 Park,
The Butcher Shop and B&G Oysters
Where it crosses Exeter Street is Saint. This
hot restaurant-cum-bar-cum-club is where
Boston’s velvet rope types tend to shake their
Prada-clad booty.
Wow!
10. Just before sunset, go to the Top of the
Hub on the 52nd floor of the Prudential Center
(topofthehub.net). Enjoy great city overviews and
sip a cocktail or three and some snacks as the sun
starts to set. On a clear day you can see as far as
Boston’s harbour islands. ●

Quand le renard paraît, les Anglais font appel au chasseur !
En Angleterre et au pays de Galles, la chasse à courre est interdite depuis 2004, mais tuer un renard au
fusil dans son jardin est parfaitement légal. 10.000 renards vivent à Londres et dérangent certains
habitants, qui n'hésitent pas à avoir recours à des tueurs professionnels. Au pays des défenseurs des animaux,

ONDON - The sniper arrived at sunset
with infrared binoculars and a silencer
in his tennis bag. He set up his .22caliber rifle in the back of a Victorian
townhouse, cracked open the glass door
and pointed the shrouded barrel toward
the far corner of the narrow garden. Then he
waited, his right eye glued to the scope, as the
last light leaked away.

out of the dark and into his field of vision. A

4. When they tested their skin against the texture
of other objects, they still rated the other person’s

benefits to touching, not just to being

up a series of experiments that would

a slow, gentle caress, the kind you’d use to touch
a baby or a loved one. This kind of caress is often
pleasurable for the receiver. But this tactile
illusion of softness ensures that the experience
is enjoyable for the giver as well, the authors
said. “To the best of our knowledge, this novel

humans of the hedonic benefits of social touch for
the touch provider,” the authors wrote. ●
