sweet pleasure : plaisir sucré
Hello and welcome to sweet pleasure : plaisir sucré – a blog devoted to baking, pastry and all things sweet. My name is Sam and I am just a regular guy who is interested in art and pastry. For me there are many commonalities and connections between these disiciplines: from concepts, forms and colours, through aesthetics/composition and materials/ingredients, to techiniques.

The EveryBlock Blog
Today we're launching in three American cities: Chicago, New York and San Francisco. On each site, you can type in any address to read local news and public information near you. You'll find three main types of news:
Civic information -- building permits, crimes, restaurant inspections and more. In many cases, this information is already on the Web but is buried in hard-to-find government databases. In other cases, this information has never been posted online, and we've forged relationships with governments to make it available.
News articles and blog entries -- major newspapers, community weeklies, TV and radio news stations, local specialty publications and local blogs. We do the work of classifying articles by geography, so you can easily find the mainstream media coverage near particular locations.
Fun from across the Web -- local photos posted to the Flickr photo-sharing site, user reviews of local businesses on Yelp, missed connections from Craigslist and more. We figure out the relevant places and point you to location-specific items you might not have known about.

The Fact Hub - Paid for by Hillary Clinton for President
Hillary Is 44
We started this website because we believe Senator Hillary Clinton will be an excellent 44th President of the United States. Senator Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic Party’s nominee for President because she is not only the best candidate running, but she is also the one candidate that will without doubt beat the Republicans and restore sanity to the White House.
For the next year, we will bring you news and commentary of the 2008 race for president. Our focus will be on Senator Clinton and the Democrats. Once Senator Clinton wins the nomination we will turn our focus to the Republican nominee.
Although we feel that Senator Clinton will be the nominee (we thought that way back in March 2006) the race, as always in a democracy, will be an exciting one. We will have lots to say especially with regards to the media and blog coverage of the campaign. We will keep an especially sharp eye on “progressives” or Democrats who repeat Republican talking points to undermine Hillary or any of our candidates.
At the left hand side of our website we have posted permanent commentary pages on certain issues such as Iraq which we will continue to update.
Feel free to comment on our posts and to send us any tips, which we will keep confidential.http://www.hillaryis44.org/

Teaching Happiness, on the Web
Hundreds of students sign up for Harvard's most popular class, "Positive Psychology," which has come to be known as the "happiness course."
Now, Harvard plans to bring happiness to the masses, offering "Positive Psychology" as an online course beginning in February. The online version, offered through the Harvard Extension School, will feature recorded lectures from the daytime Harvard College course and can be taken for credit or noncredit. The class, taught by Tal Ben-Shahar, focuses on the psychological aspects of a fulfilling life, including topics such as happiness, self-esteem, empathy, friendship, love, achievement, creativity, music, spirituality and humor.
But happiness doesn't come cheap. Those taking the course noncredit or for undergraduate credit must pay $700. Graduate credit costs $1,625. Students can register through February 3, or through February 10 by paying a late fee.
Dr. Ben-Shahar is the author of the book "Happier: Learn the Secrets to Daily Joy and Lasting Fulfillment." He was recently interviewed on "The Daily Show" by Jon Stewart, who joked that he was amazed that anyone could "get away with" teaching a course on happiness. (The full interview is posted below.)

Wonkette: The D.C. Gossip
It's hard to believe you could actually fall asleep reading something so
short, no? Here's our version: Wonkette provides an appropriately arch
and irrepressibly giddy guide to the American political landscape and
the Washington metro area social scene (such as it is). We like recall
movements, illegitimate children of senators coming forward after 50
years, wrestler-style wild screams of rage and the endorsement of Dennis
Kucinich by Grandfather Twilight (Look it up! It's true!). We also want

Bill Clinton takes a power nap
I'm afraid of the dark,
'specially when I'm in a park
And there's no-one else around,
Ooh, I get the shivers
I don't want to see a ghost,
It's a sight that I fear most
I'd rather have a piece of toast
And watch the evening news
I'm a superstitious girl,
I'm the worst in the world
Never walk under ladders,
I keep a rabbit's tail
I'll take you up on a dare,
Name the place, I'll be there,
Bungee jumping, I don't care!
So after all is said and done
I know I'm not the only one
Life indeed can be fun, if you really want to
Sometimes living out your dreams,
Ain't as easy as it seems
You wanna fly around the world,
In a beautiful balloon.

International Mountain Guides - Kilimanjaro and elsewhere
Like other exotic destinations widely believed to be threatened by degradation from climate change, the mountain's precariousness has become a marketing opportunity. The adventure travel industry sends about 30,000 climbers a year toward Kilimanjaro's summit. Scientific and outdoor magazines mention the imminent loss of the ice fields. So do guide services and outfitters on their Web sites. Our climb leader, Justin Merle, a mellow 6-foot-4 man in his late 20s who has a world-class mountaineering résumé, said of the typical adventure-travel article: "It's like, 'See Kili Before the Snow Is Gone.' That's almost a catchphrase."
