2300 Jackson Street

In honour of Michael Jackson I went to visit his childhood home in Gary, Indiana. Terri Stevens and several other family members of mine also came along with me. It was definitely a somber experience. There was a gentle and cool rain that was present during our entire visit. Many admirers of The Jacksons have placed hundreds of items around the house to memorialize the life of Michael Joseph Jackson.

Remise des Diplômes (Matriculation to Convocation)

Monsieur Français' traveling office. (Roosevelt University)

Monsieur Français' traveling office.

During my Environmental Biology lecture I realised that in one month (May 16, 2009) I will no longer have obligations. The daily schedule that consisted of lectures, seminars and revisions will cease. My plans for after graduation are a bit jangled up. Being accepted into a choice law school would be ideal, however my examination scores have somewhat marred the possibilities of that happening. I would love to apply to several of the Graduate Economic programmes with institutions like the London School of Economics & Political Science, London Metropolitan University, and University College London. So as you can see I’ve got London on the brain. I truly enjoyed it and look forward to studying and residing there.

What do you think?

Any post graduate suggestions are welcome?

Tell me what to do.

Joyeux Anniversaire à vous Justin French

I have now reached the age of twenty-one.  Two years ago this was a day I couldn’t wait to see, now I just feel like an old fool. But in all my old foolishness every so often someone does something that makes me feel the way I did before I hit my teenage years. Lindsey, Thanks for the birthday present. It is the first and (probably my) only present. Presents are not a necessity for a good birthday. But your present actually means something to me.

Egon, a protégé of Gustav Klimt, is most recognised for his extreme artistic exploration of the human form. Schiele displays somewhat jolting images of fetishism, eroticism and mortality that are pornographic in nature.

Eagon’s work is influential to modern artist such as Peter Chung, creator of
Æon Flux (1992)

Obama’s Passover Seder

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama hosted close friends and staff at a private White House meal Thursday evening to mark Passover. It’s part of the new president’s effort to reach out to Jewish voters.

The White House said the Seder meal was traditional, including matzo, bitter herbs, a roasted egg and greens in the family dining room in the executive mansion. The evening also featured the reading of the Haggadah, the religious text of the holiday.

Passover began at sundown Wednesday. It celebrates the Jewish exodus from Egypt after 400 years of slavery.

Among those invited was Valerie Jarrett, one of Obama’s closest advisers, and family friend Eric Whitaker, who was visiting from Chicago and attended a Seder last year with the campaign. First lady Michelle Obama and the family’s two daughters also attended.

The staff guest list included aides from the campaign trail who marked last year’s Passover at the Sheraton hotel in Harrisburg, Pa. Obama’s personal aide, Reggie Love; Michelle Obama’s deputy chief of staff, Melissa Winter; personal aide Dana Lewis and associate social secretary Samantha Tubman all received invitations.

Also on the guest list were Eric Lesser, a personal aide to senior adviser David Axelrod, and his family. Lesser worked during the New Hampshire primary and later handled baggage for traveling reporters. White House videographer Arun Chaudhary _ a constant presence on the trail _ landed invitations for his family.

Others in the exclusive group included Michelle Obama’s counsel and friend Susan Sher; Herbie Ziskend, a staff assistant to Vice President Joe Biden’s policy and economic advisers; and White House deputy director of advance and special events Lisa Kohnke.

White House aides said they believe it was the first president-hosted Seder at the White House.

Meet Mr. French

Mr. FrenchWelcome to French Fusion. This is a transitional period, and as a result, postings will be sporatic and a bit unconventional. If you can be patient with my bumbling around,  I will find my way, I hope you enjoy the journey and are introduced to some things you had not previously considered.

Best,

Justin French
