naturism entry in wikipedia
We are seeking either an experienced Wikipedia editor or a person with significant online experience who is willing to commit to learning the Wikipedia policies and procedures.

They should also understand how to do research and the proper use of citations to document the source of their information. The person will not be paid or remunerated in any way in order to avoid Wikipedia's Conflict Of Interest policies. In order to preserve that independence, ...

Corinne Masiero protests nude at the 2021 Cesar awards in France
Yesterday, Corinne Masiero stripped nude to present the nominees for the best costume at France's César film awards. The actress was protesting the lack of support for cinema during the pandemic. The audience reaction? Applause! Was she then rushed off the stage? No, the host simply asked her about the nominees.

Today the news in France does not report any scandal. Why would there be? We've always seen France as a society that was quite tolerant ...

Many of them include content that is misleading, inaccurate, inappropriately titillating, sexist, objectifying, and exploitative. We have included them in the library because they offer context about how naturists were and are portrayed by mainstream society – sometimes with the cooperation of naturists themselves!The video server also gives access to the live local television channels that we capture with the antenna on our tower. These ...

Fibre Optic Internet at Bare Oaks
Bare Oaks is now connected to the internet via a fibre optic connection. The image is of a single 'naked' core of fibre optic cabling coming into our telecom closet. Yet through that wire, experiments with 'flexible grid' technology have shown that you get get speeds in excess of one Tbps through a single core. What does that mean? Currently, we generally measure internet speed in Mbps. Gbps are 1,000 times faster and Tbps are a further 1,000 times faster! Of course, we have not contracted for anywhere near that much speed. But it means that as demand grows, we ...
