  • Gallup World Poll: The Many Faces of Global Migration
    on Mar 2, 2012 in emigration Immigration
    This is a great read.  A lot of what we read about migration consists of "after the action" reports.  We wait until the dust settles and then try to figure what happened.  This is one of the first proactive reports I've read that tries...
  • The Path to French Citizenship: Small Steps
    on Mar 1, 2012 in citzenship
    This morning my spouse and I, having gathered all the papers for his CNF (Certificat de nationalité française), went down to the Tribunal de grande instance de Versailles.  I'm not sure how to translate that but let's just call it th...

    on Feb 29, 2012
    Since 1990 the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has published a yearly report on the state of human development in the world.  Starting from a pre-defined set of indicators the UN gathers information from a variety of sources to deter...

  • The King's Stable and the Way of the Squire
    on Feb 23, 2012 in Flophouse Favorites
    Last Sunday the younger Frenchling and I went down to the Grande Ecurie du roi (The Big Stable of the King) for a visit and a show.  This was the first time I'd ever been inside though I've passed by and admired the building many times over the...
  • Lifestyle Migration
    on Feb 22, 2012 in crossing cultures
    When I first heard that term I really didn't know what to make of it.  The term "lifestyle" in English seems to imply something rather frivolous and even pretentious.  Something that must be the province of the rich global elite and not wit...
