    among other things the newsletter has Carlo Rovelli's brief report
    on the Marseille conferences
    includes some pictures of people

    here are the thumbnails, showing everybody

    some of these pictures are a bit haphazard---not portraits---
    we understand that the homemade wine of the French Mathematical Society was being served. many people are grinning, but some look even more
    serious than usual

    Nice to know who's who. The thumbnails are definitely better quality.
