Learning Activity by Month:


The primary goal of this Learn Tracker project is to build a web site which serves as one place to record the notes of everything that I am learning from MOOC classes, to foreign languages, to useful code examples and technical how-to notes, so that I not only have an overview of what I have learned, but can search and recall these notes at any time.

The secondary goal of this Learn Tracker project is to work together with companies, universities, and MOOC providers to build software that allows employees, students, and learners to record what they are learning in an efficient way so that it serves not only as (1) a record of what they have learned, but also (2) a place for them to review and search what they have learned.

Since January 2013, I have watched and recorded notes on over 300 MOOC lectures from over 30 different courses in both English and French, and have watched and recorded notes and flashcards on over 50 foreign language videos in Italian, French and Spanish. (I am curently still adding notes I took from 2013 and plan to be caught up by the end of January 2014.

petite ville

People:
Georges Haussmann (1809-1891)
Il a dirigé les transformations de Paris sous le Second Empire
  • il souhaitait instaurer une politique facilitant l'écoulement des flux, aussi bien de population, de marchandises que d’air et d’eau, convaincu par les théories hygiénistes héritées des Lumières et qui se sont diffusées à la suite de l’épidémie de choléra de 1832
  • cette campagne fut intitulée Paris embellie, Paris agrandie, Paris assainie
  • un autre objectif était de prévenir d'éventuels soulèvements populaires, fréquents à Paris : après la Révolution de 1789
  • a l'obsession de la ligne droite, ce que l'on a appelé le culte de l'axe au xixe siècle
  • pour cela, il est prêt à amputer des espaces comme le jardin du Luxembourg mais aussi à démolir certains bâtiments comme le marché des Innocents ou l'église Saint-Benoît-le-Bétourné
  • il aménage un certain nombre de parcs et jardins : ainsi sont créés un square pour chacun des quatre-vingt quartiers de Paris, ainsi que le parc Montsouris et le parc des Buttes-Chaumont
  • des règlements imposent des normes très strictes quant au gabarit et à l'ordonnancement des maisons, les immeubles se ressemblent tous, c'est l'esthétique du rationnel
  • il fait aussi construire ou reconstruire des ponts sur la Seine ainsi que de nouvelles églises, comme Saint-Augustin ou la Trinité
  • il décide d'étendre la ville de Paris jusqu'aux fortifications de l'enceinte de Thiers, onze communes limitrophes de Paris sont totalement supprimées et leurs territoires absorbés par la ville entièrement: Belleville, Grenelle, Vaugirard, La Villette, Auteuil, Passy, Batignolles-Monceau, Bercy, La Chapelle, Charonne et Montmartre
