Today is… “Take your dog to work day”…

Seriously ?? Take your dog to work day was first started in 1996 in the United Kingdom. It started in the USA in 1999. There is also increasing participation in TYDTWD in CanadaAustralia and New Zealand. It takes place in June, on a Friday between the 20th and the 27th.

What’s the point ? To encourage dogless coworkers to get familiar with a dog and increase adoptions rates !

Meatless Monday !

“If we like animals so much, why do we eat them ?” I guess that is a vegetarian question.

Farming animals has a terrible impact on the environment, that’s the ecological point of view.

Eating too much meat can be a cause of diabetes and cardio-vascular diseases, and that’s your doctor’s point of view.

So, these are 3 good reasons why we should eat less meat. In the USA, a new trend was started ten years ago :  Meatless Monday. It consists in avoiding meat at least once a week, on Monday.

Meet the Easter Bunny

If you imagined the Easter Bunny as a cute little rabbit, your opinion must have radically changed when you discovered Bunnymund in The Rise of the Guardians for Christmas, in 2012 !

Cute little rabbit or giant kangaroo-like creature with an Australian accent (and the voice of Hugh Jackman in the original version), which one do you prefer ?

Happy Easter everyone !

A year ago in Boston

A photographer, Robert X. Fogarty, worked on the aftermath of Boston’s 2013 bombing. The act of terrorism which took place near the finish line of the very popular annual marathon took 3 lives and left 264 injured.

This project consists in a series of portraits of the victims with a special message written on their skin, a message they want to share with the world.
