L'Équipe à Jojo

"L'Équipe à Jojo" is a song by Joe Dassin from his 1970 album Joe Dassin. In 1971 it was released as a single; the song was composed by Claude Lemesle. He still feels a particular tenderness towards it. Lemesle recalled to Le Figaro: I wrote it when I was young, at 25. I wrote the music, it resembles me. I wanted to call it "La bande à Jojo", but since Joe had done "La bande à Bonnot", there was too much similarity between the two titles. Forty-seven years it holds on, I still love it, it embodies the philosophy of the 1960 -- 1970 era. It joined a song by Pierre Delanoë I adore, "Soiree de prince". Mine is more festive, it represents another mood of the era. Unlike the album Joe Dassin, the single "L'Équipe à Jojo" didn't sell well. 7" single CBS 7151 A. "L'équipe à Jojo" B.

Marc Tasman

Marc Tasman is an American Intermedia artist who works in a variety of media, including interactive art, performance art, video art, photography. He is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee in the Department of Journalism and Media Studies. A native Louisvillian, Tasman demonstrated his interest and engagement with new media art and technology from a young age. In 1984, when Tasman was 12 years old he won a computer programming contest sponsored by the Louisville Free Public Library. Local news featured him in a story about a computer whiz. Tasman received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art and Photography in 1995 from the Allen R. Hite Art Institute at the University of Louisville where he achieved the Winthrop Allen Award for outstanding graduating B. F. A. Candidate. In 2000 he received his Master of Fine Arts in Photography from The Ohio State University in the Department of Art winning the competitive Edith Fergus Gilmore materials grant and scholarship in subsequent years.

In 1992 Tasman earned a certificate in Italian language and Art history of the Italian Renaissance at the Università per Stranieri in Perugia, Italy. Tasman's work combines documentary photography with elements of performance art and public interventions. Tasman is most well known for his time-lapse photography piece completed in 2009. Here he made a Polaroid instant film self-portrait every day for ten years and one day—3,654 consecutive days beginning on July 24, 1999, he decided to continue this practice for 10 years because of the significance of a decade and the common practice in popular media of reflecting on the passing of decades. Tasman admits he chose Polaroid film for its ease of use and lack of photographic processing to attain an image. However, there were other challenges in creating the work in archiving the material body of self-portraits, such as remembering to write the dates on the back, to make sure that stacks of photos were not knocked over or disarrayed, the cost of the film, the expense of digitizing thousands of photographs.

Tasman discussed with Mark Metcalf how the medium seemed fitting to when dealing with conceptual issues of memory and storytelling. After concluding the ten years and one day period, having digitally scanned the images, Tasman created a video from all of these Polaroids. Dick Gordon, host of the radio program, The Story with Dick Gordon, on American Public Media suggested that Tasman's project that began in 1999, illuminates the dramatic transformation that imaging technology and it social uses have undergone. "The funny thing is that the idea of a shared YouTube video was something that Marc could not have conceived of—the technology wasn't there."Art and architecture critic Mary Louise Schumacher for the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel wrote that Tasman's choice of the medium of Polaroid, "seems eerily prescient," amidst the ubiquity of digital self-portraiture involved with social media, given that Polaroid stopped manufacturing film in 2009. In her review of the 2010 Wisconsin Triennial at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, the museum's twelfth survey of artists living and working in the state, where Tasman created a 40 foot wide by 16 foot high installation of nearly 5000 Polaroids, Schumacher described a "striking poignancy" that this work takes on when she learned that Tasman's maternal great-grandparents were killed during World War II and that no photographs of them survived.

"Is he searching for the faces of lost relatives in the wall-filling installation of himself? Is the sheer endurance of his project a statement of survival?" Art critic Katie Vaughn wrote that "one feels stunned thinking about the time commitment involved in such a project—and a similar feeling is evoked seeing the photographs en masse." Independent curator Joan Backes suggests that Tasman's piece "represents a kind of dedication necessary for all artists, a most distinguishing and inspiring characteristic of this work." This work is featured in and on the cover of the book Reframing Photography: Theory and Practice, published in 2010 by Routledge. Tasman's interventionist projects are playful and political. After having several political yard signs stolen in the late summer of 2004, Tasman covered his remaining sign with oil and thorns, devised a crude motion sensitive sonic alarm, set up an infrared camcorder at his front door and recorded the nighttime scene. Tasman constructed a website, as this was before the advent of YouTube, where he posted the video clips of "the would-be thieves and their humorous reactions" to being caught in the booby trap.

As the trap proved to be a successful deterrent, local television and radio news broadcasts dubbed him the Video Vigilante. In 2007, his video which compiled eight failed attempts to steal the signs, "Who is Stealing My Signs?" was selected for the Ann Arbor Film Festival's competition program. In 2006 Tasman was awarded a Mary Nohl Fellowship, for the subsequent year's show at the Institute of Visual Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee he produced exhibition called, "Proposal for A New American Flag: Representing a new constellation." Tasman's didactic exhibition which included videos, maps, letters to government officials, hundreds of the new American flags ranging in scale from 4 inches to 9 feet, traveled in Wisconsin to Fond du Lac where it was on view through the Spring of 2008 at the UW-Visual Art Gallery. Tasman proposed redesigning the American flag by increasing the constellation of stars from 50 to 99, 9 rows up and 11 rows across, a symbolic representation of 9/11, the September 11 attacks.

The 19 stripes of the flag, or 9 plus 10, represent the pre-attack naivete of September t

Bachelor's degree

A bachelor's degree or baccalaureate is an undergraduate academic degree awarded by colleges and universities upon completion of a course of study lasting three to seven years. In some institutions and educational systems, some bachelor's degrees can only be taken as graduate or postgraduate degrees after a first degree has been completed. In countries with qualifications frameworks, bachelor's degrees are one of the major levels in the framework, although some qualifications titled bachelor's degrees may be at other levels and some qualifications with non-bachelor's titles may be classified as bachelor's degrees; the term bachelor in the 12th century referred to a knight bachelor, too young or poor to gather vassals under his own banner. By the end of the 13th century, it was used by junior members of guilds or universities. By folk etymology or wordplay, the word baccalaureus came to be associated with bacca lauri in reference to laurels being awarded for academic success or honours. Under the British system, those influenced by it, undergraduate academic degrees are differentiated between honours degrees and non-honours degrees.

An honours degree requires a higher academic standard than a pass degree, in some systems an additional year of study beyond the non-honours bachelor's. Some countries, such as Australia, New Zealand and Canada, have a postgraduate "bachelor with honours" degree; this may be taken as a consecutive academic degree, continuing on from the completion of a bachelor's degree program in the same field, or as part of an integrated honours program. Programs like these require completion of a full-year long research thesis project; the map shows. In most African countries, the university systems follow the model of their former colonizing power. For example, the Nigerian university system is similar to the British system, while the Ivorian system is akin to the French. Bachelor's degrees in Algerian universities are called "الليسانس" in la licence in French; the degree is identical to the program of France's universities, as specified in the LMD reform. Bachelor's degree programs cover most of the fields in Algerian universities, except some fields, such as Medicine and Pharmaceutical Science.

Bachelor's degrees at the University of Botswana take four years. The system draws on both American models. Degrees are classified as First Class, Second Class Division One, Second Class Division Two and Third as in English degrees, but without being described as honours; the main degrees are named by British tradition, but in recent years there have been a number of degrees named after specific subjects, such as Bachelor of Library and Information. In Kenya, university education is supported by the government. A bachelor's degree is awarded to students who complete a three to seven-year course depending on the area of study. For most degree programs, a research project and an internship period after which a report is written by the student is a must before the student is allowed to graduate. In 2012, a number of select colleges were upgraded to university status in a bid to increase the intake of students into degree programs. In Morocco, a bachelor's degree is referred to as al-ʾijāzah; the course of study takes three years.

The first cycle comprises the propaedeutic, year. After completing their first two years, students can pursue either theoretical specialization or professional specialization; the second cycle is one year after whose completion students receive the licence d'études fondamentales or the licence professionnelle. This academic degree system was introduced in September 2003. University admission is competitive, with attendant advantages and disadvantages. Nonetheless, it takes four to five years to complete a bachelor's degree. In cases of poor performance, the time limit is double the standard amount of time. For example, one may not study for more than 10 years for a five-year course. Students are asked to leave if they must take longer. Nigerian universities offer BSc, BTech, BArch, other specialized undergraduate degrees, such as BEng. Science undergraduate degrees may require six months or a semester dedicated to SIWES but it is mandatory for all engineering degrees. A semester for project work/thesis is required, not excluding course work, during the bachelor thesis in the final year.

The classifications of degrees: first-class, second-class, third-class and a pass. First- and second-class graduates are eligible for advanced postgraduate degrees, but other classes may be required for an additional postgraduate diploma before such eligibility. Furthermore, all graduating stude
