Metlinks OTW : 11.12.09

Here are the various bits and pieces for this week. There is so much going on at the moment! Which means there is lots of stuff to talk about but also little time to do so…


    Influenza A (H1N1)

  • All about the vaccination centres in Paris
  • Blood donation suffers from the flu as well: numbers are in decline compared to last year’s. This might be caused both by less donors and also by less personel available.
  • The nurse students are also affected by the conscriptions for the vaccination centres: long hours and maybe no pay in this holiday season… I also heard they had little time to prepare their exams coming up.
  • Tired of all the jazz around the ful? Relieve your stress with the vaccinator game!
  • Miscellaneous

  • France to hand back some Egyptian treasures during Mubarak visit next week.
  • We think this piece of advice is really quite terrible and is bound to get the poor fellow to miss his flight! Alternate possibility could be, if things go well in Charles de Gaulle and you see there are no problems on the RER B, to get out of the RER in Saint Michel Notre Dame station, take a look around especially towards Notre Dame and then head back down and to Orly airport.
  • Will there be an SNCF strike this week-end? Most unions have removed their call to strike! They warn about possible strikes in January though…
  • Christmas decorations at La Fayette: lovely set of pictures
  • I wanna ride the poney mommy!

  • From 5th to 13th December, it’s time for “Salon du Cheval“. I hear the mean interest is for the horse shows (I know nothing about horses myself). Be careful because it’s in Villepinte this year, not Porte de Versailles!
  • This event also leads to new campaigns from “Le cheval ça ne se mange pas“, more info on their website. Maybe you’ve noticed the ads in the metro as well?
