'Bonjour Mrs Macron': 101-year old Frenchwoman mistakes Angela Merkel for French President's wife

'Bonjour Mrs Macron': 101-year old Frenchwoman mistakes Angela Merkel for French President's wifeA 101-year-old French pensioner has mistaken Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, for the wife of Emmanuel Macron, the French President, in a touching mix-up during First World War commemorations. The Franco-German "couple" may not be firing on all cylinders politically but one old French woman applied the term quite literally to the leaders of the European Union's two heavyweight nations. The conjugal confusion took place as the two heads of state were attending a ceremony on Saturday near the town of Compiègne, north of Paris, to mark the centenary of the signing of the Armistice agreement that ended the conflict on November 11, 1918. As they met members of the public, a 101-year-old woman was first introduced to Mr Macron. Grabbing his hand she exclaimed: "Monsieur Macron! That is not possible! A little woman like me shaking hands with the President of the Republic. That's fantastic!" She then turned to Mrs Merkel, 64, with a smile to say: "You are Madame Macron!" The Franco-Germany "couple" may not be firing on all cylinders but one pensioner took the term literally Credit: BENOIT TESSIER/AFP In fact Mr Macron, 40, is married to Brigitte, 65, and Mrs Merkel to Joachim Stauer, 69. Bemused, Mrs Merkel , who was accompanied by her interpreter, responded at first in Germany by saying: "No, I am the Chancellor of Germany." When this failed to trigger a reaction, Mrs Merkel had a stab at the same sentence in French. "Je suis la chancelière allemande," she said. It still remained unclear whether the woman had understood who she was, but she looked visibly delighted. "It's fantastic," she kept saying as Mr Macron asked her to turn to the camera for a photo with his German "wife" before kissing her goodbye. She promised to be back for next year's commemoration. The two leaders had signed a book of remembrance in a railway carriage identical to the one in which the 1918 Armistice was signed. They also laid a wreath and unveiled a plaque to Franco-German reconciliation. Mr Macron and Mrs Merkel held hands and put on a united front before the French president welcomed around 70 world leaders including American and Russian presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin for centenary commemorations on Sunday. Despite their visible entente and joint call for a multi-polar world and warnings against the rise of nationalism, the Franco-German "motor" - supposed to be the driving force behind EU integration - is sputtering. Mrs Merkel, who has been weakened by electoral setbacks, lacks the clout to push for greater European integration and has clashed with Mr Macron on taxing "Gafa" internet giants and on EU defence.

Roasting gets Brussels sprouts caramelized on the outsideRoasting is an easy way to produce Brussels sprouts that are caramelized on the outside and tender on the inside. To ensure that we achieved this balance, we started by roasting them covered with foil; tossing them in a little bit of water to create a steamy environment helped cook them through.

California wildfires: Why Trump's claim 'forest management' is to blame is completely wrong - and why he'll keep saying it

California wildfires: Why Trump's claim 'forest management' is to blame is completely wrong - and why he'll keep saying itThree separate wildfires raging in California have killed at least 31 people and as many as 200 more are currently missing while firefighters battle to contain the disaster. The Camp Fire in the north of the state has burned 108,000 acres of land so far and is among deadliest in California history, while the Woolsey Fire near Los Angeles has claimed 83,275 acres and the Hill Fire in Ventura County scorched 4,531 more. Against this backdrop, Donald Trump has exacerbated a situation in which emotions were already running high with a series to tweets blaming the infernos on the "gross mismanagement" of state forests at the hands of administrators.

Tens of Cat Mummies and 100 Cat Statues Found Near Ancient Egyptian PyramidAncient Egyptians seem to have been "cat people," or at least cat mummy people. Researchers have dug up several mummified cats alongside about 100 wooden cat statues in a tomb complex near a pyramid built for the pharaoh Userkaf, who reigned from 2291 B.C. to 2289 B.C., the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities announced Nov. 10. The burials are located near the site of Saqqara in Egypt.

Indonesia urges more training for pilots after Lion Air crash

Indonesia urges more training for pilots after Lion Air crashThe comments shed further light on the areas under scrutiny as investigators prepare to publish their preliminary report on Nov. 28 or 29, one month after the Lion Air Boeing 737 MAX dived into the Java Sea, killing all 189 on board. Now the investigation's focus appears to be expanding to the clarity of U.S.-approved procedures to help pilots prevent the 737 MAX over-reacting to such a data loss, and methods for training them. Soerjanto Tjahjono, head of Indonesia's transportation safety committee of crash investigators (KNKT), said on Monday that Indonesian regulators would tighten training requirements as a result of the findings of the investigation so far.

Republicans Remain in a Strong Position in State Legislatures

Republicans Remain in a Strong Position in State LegislaturesMost of the commentary on the 2018 midterms has focused on the federal level, where Democrats won a majority in the House and Republicans extended their lead in the Senate. When combined with the governor results we can see that Democrats made important gains across the states, but the Republicans remain in a strong position. Going into the 2018 midterm, Republicans had complete control of 26 state governments - meaning that their party held both chambers of the state legislature as well as the governorship.
