Burger King only recently reentered the French market so I can't comment too much. What happened to Quick, they made good burgers but they appear to have all gone. The owner of the French BK franchise bought Quick and is replacing the Quick restaurants by BK ones. At the moment I have both near my ...Jump to post
Whatever the reason for the cancellation or how much it would have ended up costing one thing should be quite evident. That is most Americans are rather indifferent to the military and those who served. If you want evidence of this turn on the news. Maybe because your military never had to defend i...Jump to post
Burger King only recently reentered the French market so I can't comment too much. However I can attest that McDonald's is innovative and creates new recipes to adapt to the countries it is in. For example in France they did the McBaguette (not a success) or the 280 with French cheeses : https://www...Jump to post
So it turns out the initial value is in g/L. 1.5g/l is three times the legal limit for driving here. I'm surprised the US allows more than France.Jump to post
I said "French speaking" as the radio said he spoke French, nothing more, nothing less. A Parisian accent is better, people from the country have to ditch their accent if they want to succeed on TV/radio/cinema, with very few exceptions. It's not difficult to adapt though, keeping an accen...Jump to post
how much in g/L ?Jump to post
In addition to the items mentioned above it’s tough turnaround AF given <1% growth in the French economy. Macron is weak and getting weaker and no one else is on the horizon. I fear for the prospects. Yep, weak Macron just reformed the French railways, something his predecessors would not even have...Jump to post
The French parade that he liked cost 7 millions euros (and that's already a bit controversial).
I'm sure his will be "bigger" but 92 millions is ridiculous.
In fact remaining catholics being on the conservative side, a number of them want to undo Vatican II and go back to such nonsense as the tridentine mass in latin.Jump to post
Here they're used for aesthetic reasons, the cabins are glass all around and there is no need for an ugly mechanism on top.Jump to post
Yeah on a business radio they were saying pilots are angry because the CEO isn't French. I could understand the concern somewhat if the CEO was Dutch, or worse from KLM, but being angry over a French speaking Canadian is ridiculous and makes them look really foolish, never good for people we're supp...Jump to post
If you're still a practicing Catholic today I'm not sure any of these revelations will change your mind. After all Christianity is all about forgiveness isn't it ?Jump to post
Had not heard of that Jersey option before. It would be hard to sell to the european people though, considering Jersey is a fiscal paradise.Jump to post
I haven't followed this too closely, what did he do beside sleeping with a coworker and sending private texts ? The Agent sent texts to another (female) Agent he was having an affair with. He used his FBI phone so his wife wouldn't see them on his family phone. Neither Agent made the texts public b...Jump to post

Some EU countries (I think Netherlands and Belgium, maybe more) grant certain asylum seekers work permits if they are found to have a credible claim on the initial review of their application. The process to a final determination (last administrative review + possible legal appeals) can stretch out...Jump to post
I was surprised with the article so checked a French source, and as I thought there was no reopening of the case as it was never closed. Rather a new approach is being taken now that there is an official report. Also unlike in Malaysia or China French justice is independent, so this is really the wo...Jump to post
Shocking ! I've never visited Genoa but I've taken that bridge many times coming from France as my mother is Italian. An uncle of mine took it the day before it went down. I had no idea of its state but when I was on it I really didn't think anything of it. My mother was frightened by its height eve...Jump to post

Boulevard Richard Lenoir, Paris; it is absolutely perfect. Nice and wide, tree-lined with mature trees, has a narrow park down the middle that separates each direction of traffic. Lots of fountains in the park. It looks really cool when lit up at night also. is one that is at least 4 lanes wide, wi...Jump to post
Yemen is such a nice place to live ! Can't argue with you, you're too far out there. It's perfectly legal to marry little girls there...

The authorities told the press that it was an illegal maneuver since the ATR was not certified in the aerobatic category. Therefore they would have a talk with Mr Nielsen. Nielsen told the press that he was sorry that he had done something illegal, but it was no big deal and should be treated as if...Jump to post
I don't pretend to know if glyphosate causes cancer. However I do know it kills a lot of people, by doing what it is supposed to do, which is cleaning metals. Heavy metals which end up in the drinking water of plenty of people and destroys their kidneys.Jump to post
If its even remotely possible to say something positive about this, I bet BBD is anxious to get their hands on the data recorders so they can see exactly how much force the plane can handle - he did a lot of maneuvers you don't put those planes in. I think some of the BBD test pilots have already d...Jump to post
I remember he booted DOS from floppies and loaded some spread sheet (probably VisiCalc) to show us that you could actually do work with it.

I still cannot get my head around the fact that 19 people were allowed to board what is essentially a proving flight on a 65yo Convair... I am a BIG enthusiast.

SpaceX already has future transportation on lockdown with the BFR. Not long now and we'll have 1x daily DXB-IAH, JFK-SYD, SFO-JNB shuttles less than 1 hr in duration carrying a payload roughly 1.5x that of an A380. What do you mean by "not long" ?

I read that Boeing expects that it will be many years before its hypersonic plane is ready for commercial service, so I wouldn't (at least personally) expect anything of the sort any time soon.

Many of his supporters have seen an improvement in their livelihoods over the years, but might not be so well off they would hold foreign currency.

This could hurt. Let's hope it will diminish the personality cult around Erdogan.
