The Hundred Days (French: les Cent-Jours IPA: [le sɑ̃ ʒuʁ]), also known as the War of the Seventh Coalition, marked the period between Napoleon's return from eleven months of exile on the island of Elba to Paris on 20 March 1815 and the second restoration of King Louis XVIII on 8 July 1815 (a period of 110 days).[a] This period saw the War of the Seventh Coalition, and includes the Waterloo Campaign, the Neapolitan War as well as several other minor campaigns. The phrase les Cent Jours (the hundred days) was first used by the prefect of Paris, Gaspard, comte de Chabrol, in his speech welcoming the king back to Paris on 8 July.[b]
Napoleon returned while the Congress of Vienna was sitting. On 13 March, seven days before Napoleon reached Paris, the powers at the Congress of Vienna declared him an outlaw, and on 25 March Austria, Prussia, Russia and the United Kingdom, the four Great Powers and key members of the Seventh Coalition, bound themselves to put 150,000 men each into the field to end his rule. This set the stage for the last conflict in the Napoleonic Wars, the defeat of Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo, the second restoration of the French kingdom, and the permanent exile of Napoleon to the distant island of Saint Helena, where he died in May 1821.
Marshal Ney, now one of Louis XVIII's commanders, had said that Napoleon ought to be brought to Paris in an iron cage, but, on 14 March, Ney joined Napoleon with 6,000 men. Five days later, after proceeding through the countryside promising constitutional reform and direct elections to an assembly, to the acclaim of gathered crowds, Napoleon entered the capital, from where Louis XVIII had recently fled.
On arriving at Paris, three days after Waterloo, Napoleon still clung to the hope of concerted national resistance, but the temper of the chambers and of the public generally forbade any such attempt. Napoleon and his brother Lucien Bonaparte were almost alone in believing that, by dissolving the chambers and declaring Napoleon dictator, they could save France from the armies of the powers now converging on Paris. Even Davout, minister of war, advised Napoleon that the destiny of France rested solely with the chambers. Clearly, it was time to safeguard what remained, and that could best be done under Talleyrand's shield of legitimacy. Jean Jacques Régis de Cambacérès was the minister of justice during this time and was a close confidant of Napoleon.
French troops concentrated in Paris had as many soldiers as the invaders and more cannons. There were two major skirmishes and a few minor ones near Paris during the first few days of July. In the first major skirmish, the Battle of Rocquencourt, on 1 July, French dragoons, supported by infantry and commanded by General Exelmans, destroyed a Prussian brigade of hussars under the command of Colonel von Sohr (who was severely wounded and taken prisoner during the skirmish), before retreating. In the second skirmish, on 3 July, General Dominique Vandamme (under Davout's command) was decisively defeated by General Graf von Zieten (under Blücher's command) at the Battle of Issy, forcing the French to retreat into Paris.
The war was triggered by a pro-Napoleon uprising in Naples, after which Murat declared war on Austria on 15 March 1815, five days before Napoleon's return to Paris. The Austrians were prepared for war. Their suspicions were aroused weeks earlier, when Murat applied for permission to march through Austrian territory to attack the south of France. Austria had reinforced her armies in Lombardy under the command of Bellegarde prior to war being declared.
Provence and Brittany, which were known to contain many royalist sympathisers, did not rise in open revolt, but La Vendée did. The Vendée Royalists successfully took Bressuire and Cholet, before they were defeated by General Lamarque at the Battle of Rocheserviere on 20 June. They signed the Treaty of Cholet six days later on 26 June.

The genocide was set into motion by the death of Rwandan President Juvénal Habyarimana. On April 6th, 1994, Habyarimana's plane was shot down by a missile of unknown origin. Government-aligned forces used (Hutu) Habyarimana's death as an excuse to begin a campaign of slaughter they had been planning for some time, and the genocide began on April 7th. It went on for about 100 days.
The day after the genocide began, the Tutsi rebel group RPF, led by Paul Kagame, launched an offensive aimed at toppling the Rwandan government. In about one hundred days, the RPF defeated the government forces. Kagame, a Tutsi, became the country's leader in all but name: a Hutu was technically made president while Kagame was vice president, but Kagame controlled the army.
Today is the day, friends. Today is the day you set a goal and take step one towards a better, healthier you. A more attractive and confident you. But today is not day one. No. It is day one hundred and one. Over the next one hundred days, you're going to become a leaner, stronger person. All you've got to do is get it together for one hundred days. If you would have started this program January 1st, you'd be done by now. Not that long of a time period, but it's plenty long enough to change your life.
Simple. I want to succeed. I want you to succeed. But more than that, it takes time to get a program to stick. Being fit for the rest of your life is about changing your habits. That's why crash diets or 2,3, even 4 week plans fail. Because when it's over it's over. With this, after 100 days, hopefully these habits will stick. It's like muscle memory. We're training you to be a better you.
What's my goal? Well, I want to look great. I want to see my abs. By my best calculation, I figure they might show up down around 200lbs. Unfortunately, shedding the 51.5 pounds necessary to get to that number is probably outside of what can be done realistically in 100 days.
Thirty pounds we've already established as being well within the realm of possibility, so that's too easy of a goal. I'm setting my 100 days goal at reaching a weight of 215 lbs. That's a total loss of about 37lbs. I'll have to lose an average almost 2.5lbs a week. With motivation, some exercise, and a smart low carb diet, I'm confident I'll hit it.
I'm doing it too. You can see my stats and my weight and embarrassing pictures as I embark on my own 100 Day journey. Every week there will be a new article talking about a different aspect of the plan or filling you in on what I did in a given week to get the results I did. There will be difficult days. There will be good days. There will be great weeks of fat loss and disappointing ones. But I'm sticking it for 100 days. You should too.
I loved the style of writing in this impressive book. Author Fausto Brizzi delivers and enjoyable tale which should be sad and depressing. It was not. I laughed throughout this tale. It was emotional however not distressing. When you think of a book detailing how a man tries to bring happiness to his last 100 days of life, you think you will be crying the whole way through. I did not, but I felt it the whole way through. It is entertaining, enlightening and handles this sad situation in a way that is pleasant and at times fun (actually a lot of times). I am not sure I can break down who would enjoy this book, but I know I did. It is a wonderful novel that I hope everyone gets the opportunity to read. I loved it.
If you leave a skilled nursing facility (SNF) and return to that SNF or another one within 30 days, you do not need another three-day qualifying hospital stay. If you return after 30 days have passed, Medicare will not pay unless you have been in the hospital for another three-day qualifying stay in the 30 days before you enter the SNF. 2b1af7f3a8
