In 1927, Clärenore Stinnes traveled the world by car with three evening dresses and 128 boiled eggs, he wrote.

We’re talking about a boiled egg…

Which for a German woman in the 1920s was the key to adventure! Her name was Clärenore Stinnes, the daughter of a great industrialist, who had a taste of oil, in 1927 embarked on an automobile world tour, which she completed in less than two years! She laughed a lot and put on the evening on the stage with her adventurous partner, photographer Carl, Shjuze because he was Swede and therefore supposed to be less hot, she says, they would end up together, but before they escaped the wolves, the hungry Russians, the Chinese bandits and the Andes where the thirst was so intense that one day, with foam on the lips, they had to drink water from their car’s cooling system

You will read all this in books. A basic review reminding us of the greatness of the species and how fun we are also in our habits…hold on to the boiled eggs by the way…in fact, there were 128 boiled eggs, Clärenore had them cook on the drive so they wouldn’t waste time – I also took three guns and three evening dresses, Why didn’t I know this woman of steel…

Fraulein Stinnes isn’t alone in Books, which this summer is dedicated to great adventurers… An explorer of the Holy Land named Egerie, an English diplomat who was traveling with Arab sheikhs when Albion ran Iraq, a 19th-century journalist, Nellie Bly, who pretended to be crazy To tell the story of the inferno of a madhouse in New York, a Russian Amazon has abandoned her husband and child to dress as a man, the Czar’s officer against Napoleon!

The book cover was emblazoned with the smile of pilot Amelia Earhart, who was a star of the twenties, real, the ones that existed a century ago, the roaring twenties that were actually wise, we tried so much to be free. I dream of this letter that Amelia sent to her future husband “I will not impose on you a medieval code of fidelity nor consider myself bound to you, nor can I guarantee to support permanent confinement of the cage, even if it is pleasant” … .

And finally freedom, adventure and the desire to conquer our destinies take on the features of a woman … Le Monde on her website and in her magazine, but also the weekend, magazine des Echos, paints for us a portrait of Lee Miller, who is celebrated at photography meetings in Arles.

Her blonde beauty on the cover of Vogue made her the embodiment of the tomboy, the free woman of the twenties … then the muse of the surrealists and her lover Man Ray … the pictures of her, and what an artist, what a war reporter, what a joy, her picture in the bathtub Hitler’s Berchtesgaden, after the defeat of Nazism, is depicted in liberated Paris capturing novelist Colette in black and white with her electric hair. He drove her free boat. It was his son who fought for the work of Lee Miller to be known so that we could now sing the glory of our mothers …

In Télérama, I remember a woman who demanded it from her grandmother; “My name bears courage,” said George Sand, granddaughter of Aurora Sand, she was a painter, writer, and maker of Art Deco jewelry and witch dolls, and at 14-18, she taught the children of Paris the martial art…

There is also talk of suicides…

Any one wondering whether they should be read, following Émile Durkheim as social facts, and seeing in them, clues to what one goes through in big business…

L’Humanité alerts us to Orange, which was called France Telecom, as we have died enough for the former leaders to find themselves in court – the appeals trial has just ended … and in this trial, Humanity tells us that the defense, triggered the suicide of a 52-year-old client this spring ; who hanged himself at his workplace in Draguignan…in a location where the departing job didn’t stop anymore. At the beginning of June in Troyes, another Orange client committed suicide himself, complaining about the overload of work, the failure to replace colleagues, – unionists who say that in Orange it is changing, and – work, agents find themselves directing subcontractors, no one does it anymore, And nobody’s doing it anymore, nobody’s in their trade anymore – then is this the “return of the milling machine”?

Marianne says three suicides weighed on Danone which we thought was happy as a model, Danone, but we were told of a discrepancy between former CEO Emmanuel Faber’s rhetoric that he wanted to save the world, and questionable practices toward employees. Unionist words: “On the one hand, employees must reinforce themselves with moral values ​​that I would describe as sectarian and shamanistic, and on the other hand they are subject to strong pressures and management styles with financial performance objectives.” .

Liberation tells us about teen suicide attempts, which are growing like a silent epidemic, no management in doubt here, but a period when there is no visible future between disease, the climate crisis and war in Ukraine.

In Republican Yonne, you will read the mourning of children’s laughter that would not reverberate at Looze School which was permanently closed, Seven students in one class of the village, who would go next year to Joigny, in Brion, in Bussy-en-Othe, Parents were looking for other village schools for their children so that their children can find each other and avoid further closures… In Bègles, Sud-Ouest, a teacher of CP CE1 told me in protest against the project of her school’s direction of Joan of Arc to pave a playground that had hitherto been strewn with gravel, and that does not fit With the fight against global warming, we must plant trees, but he finds some that are rootless. Asphalt damage…

And finally, we’re talking about imitation…

What Inrocks proudly demonstrates, who, like every summer, gives us a special erotica is a smart and alluring look at what we have become. A young Dutch woman with a thin nipple is carried on her knees and her long arms intertwined with blue tank shirts, surreal drawings of a giant in her dress and a funny text telling the beauty of women sitting on men’s faces, the practice was theorized in 1938. A bitter report tells us how in a country devastated by Iraq Violence, a young man surrenders himself to pornography on the basis of pain, and online thinking of restrained, restrained bodies and these are not just images, they are necessary to bite a claw hitting a slap so that I am happy .. There is nothing more porous in the world than desire and intimacy.
