BLANK. While Jean-Michel Blanquer is under fire from critics after announcing the new health protocol before the start of the new school year from his vacation spot, Ibiza, the Minister of National Education defended himself on the 8 p.m. news from TF1 this Tuesday evening.

[Mise à jour le 18 janvier 2022 à 22h04] “I didn’t break any rules.” Jean-Michel Blanquer tried to defuse the controversy over the announcement of the new health protocol before the start of the school year from his vacation spot, Ibiza, on January 2. “Is it normal or not to take a vacation for a member of the government? I don’t think anyone can think that it’s not abnormal”, declared the Minister of National Education on TF1, this Tuesday. “I didn’t break any rules. Things wouldn’t have changed if I had stayed in Paris. I took four days off and worked during those four days.”

On the question of a possible resignation, Jean-Michel Blanquer replied “that you have to keep your cool”. “The opponents play on the symbolism. It may be a bit of a mistake, the opponents play on it”. He still recognized the symbolism of the chosen place. “If the place had to be changed, yes, I would change it, because I can clearly see the connotation it has. open school.

He was two hours from Paris. Yes, but he was not in Normandy, Champagne, Somme or Loiret. No, between Christmas and New Year, Jean-Michel Blanquer did not go green in the countryside around the capital but opted for the shores of the Mediterranean in the Balearic Islands: direction Ibiza. If it was not a question of idleness as the Iberian Peninsula knows them in summer, the destination is a task, a symbol of decompression in the middle of the Omicron wave and a few days away from a return to school under close surveillance. The atmosphere had already been tense for weeks between teaching professionals and their boss, the announcement of a new untenable health protocol the day before the start of the school year added fuel to the fire, the successive changes of rules the following days fanning the flames before an explosion of anger when the tenant’s holiday on rue de Grenelle off the coast of Spain was made public by Médiapart on Monday January 17. A resort from where he unveiled the new protocol.

Since then, criticism has rained down on this weighty minister of Macron’s five-year term. Once again put in difficulty by the opposition which calls for his resignation, jostled again by teachers’ unions who want to change bosses and even dropped by some within the majority on condition of anonymity, Jean-Michel Blanquer tries to save face, especially since Macronie is officially uniting behind one of their own. ?There is, I recognize, a symbolism. I could have chosen another place. The symbolism, I regret it”, conceded Jean-Michel Blanquer to the National Assembly, Tuesday January 18, 2022, defending himself however: “Did I have the right to take a few days off after this year? Are there any meetings that I didn’t do because of this? No. Would the decisions have been different? No more”.

What will happen to Jean-Michel Blanquer, in the light of a new strike in the school environment on Thursday January 20? Three months before the presidential election, the former rector of the academy should, barring an unlikely reversal of the situation, keep his portfolio until the end of the five-year term. With the national deadline fast approaching, Emmanuel Macron should not risk changing the boss of education, he who, despite all the controversies, managed the health crisis despite the disputes in the schools. Now is the time to turn around…

Jean-Michel Blanquer on vacation in Ibiza

Emmanuel Macron would have done well without this new controversy, a few weeks before the first round of the presidential election. Mediapart’s revelations about Jean-Michel Blanquer’s vacation in Ibiza give food for thought to the opposition, which points to the lack of preparation, consultation and professionalism of the executive on the crisis that is shaking National Education . The facts could almost be harmless: the minister spent 4 days of vacation in Spain, in Ibiza, from December 28 to December 2 last. But the government also knew how much, at the end of December, teachers and parents of students were worried about the high level of circulation of the epidemic at school and were waiting for concrete answers to deal with it. The new protocol, demanding and binding, had come the day before, from an article in Le Parisien ? paying moreover. We now know that the minister gave it from Ibiza.

The executive, which had to fight for almost 5 years to try to erase an image of amateurism and elitism that cares little for the concerns of the French, can only be embarrassed by this episode. The SNES-FSU quickly judged publicly that the minister had shown “contempt for the entire educational community”. Not having anticipated these revelations or the effect that this would produce in public opinion is, in fact, quite astonishing. Was Matignon informed? Yes, according to the entourage of Jean-Michel Blanquer. “The interview with Le Parisien was done by videoconference on Saturday, then updated on Sunday before publication. This did not change the release time of the protocol. If he had been there [à Paris], he wouldn’t have done anything different. […] It was validated with the Prime Minister. The minister was in constant teleworking?, tries to sweep a collaborator from Le Monde. Another adds: ?The minister had to be two hours from Paris, he was two hours from Paris. He was not in Timbuktu”.

Castex aware of Blanquer’s vacation in Ibiza

Still, the services of the head of government give a completely different story. “Matignon does not validate each other’s leave. We set a rule: that they stay in Europe, that they stay two hours from Paris, and that they can be contacted at all times”, specifies an adviser to the Premier Minister. A relative of Jean Castex still tells Le Monde that the Prime Minister was well aware, but that he would have warned Jean-Michel Blanquer of the potentially deleterious effects of this risk-taking. He would thus have “advised the minister not to go to Ibiza in this context of the explosion of the Omicron wave”. This Tuesday morning on CNews, obviously embarrassed, the government spokesperson tried to defend the minister, who was undoubtedly weakened. “I’m not here to lecture. There is a rule which is fixed, which is very clear, it is that you must be easily repatriated to Paris if necessary and that you must be permanently reachable, mobilized , to his task. I have no reason to think that this was not the case”, soberly commented Gabriel Attal.

As Le Monde reports, within the presidential majority, Jean-Michel Blanquer’s holidays are only variously appreciated. A deputy, close to Jean-Michel Blanquer, admits the minister’s political error: “Was his weekend a good idea? No. Do we cut off a minister’s head because that he left for four days, validated with the Prime Minister, and that he teleworked? No. Can we grit our teeth and move on? No choice “.

[content] => Array ( [encoded] =>

Targeted by criticism concerning his remarks on children with disabilities and what he denounces as the “obsession with inclusion”, Éric Zemmour has seen old remarks on the subject unearthed by the newspaper Le Monde, which is not going to calm tensions down.

The controversy is far from over. Criticized candidate for the presidential election still waiting for his 500 signatures, Éric Zemmour has been chaining since the announcement of his entry into the race for the Elysée the controversies with remarks that challenge. The latest to date: those uttered against disabled children, last Friday, January 14, who should, according to him, integrate “specialized establishments”, denouncing “the obsession with inclusion” which is according to him “a bad manner done to other children and to those children who are, the poor, completely overwhelmed by other children”.

A speech that caused a reaction in the political sphere, both with Sophie Cluzel, Secretary of State in charge of Disability who denounced a “miserable vision” and “excluding” disability, that Valérie Pécresse, who castigated the “brutality” remarks by Éric Zemmour or Gilbert Montagné. And these have not finished making leaps, while The world has just unearthed, in the midst of controversy, remarks made several years ago by the former CNews reporter and columnist. Concern about the integration of people with disabilities into society is not worthy of a president’s priorities, thus quoted Apolline de Malherbe, who received on Tuesday January 18 the candidate of Reconquest!.

Éric Zemmour qualifies his remarks

When Jacques Chirac made it one of his priorities, it was an objective worthy of a general council president., he then continued, as reported The world. In his defence, Éric Zemmour did not deny his remarks, but nevertheless qualified by explaining that a president must have “projects for France”, and then there is “a Prime Minister and ministers who deal with very important issues such as the disabled”. A few hours after the start of the controversy, the candidate, who was rebuffed by his camp, denounced in a video “diverted remarks” by “politicians” guilty according to him of “lies” and “of hypocrisy”.

The cantor of the “Remontada” Arnaud Montebourg will announce in the coming hours the withdrawal of his presidential candidacy, learned Tuesday, January 18 franceinfo from sources close to the candidate, confirming information from 20 minutes. This withdrawal will take the form of a pre-recorded video broadcast on social networks on Wednesday.

The former Socialist Minister for Productive Recovery could only observe that “his proposals did not find the desired echo”, according to his campaign manager Mickaël Vallet. Credited with 1 to 3% of voting intentions in the polls, Arnaud Montebourg only had more difficulty finding the necessary funding for his campaign.

Not retained in the process of the popular Primary, he will not join a candidate either. “The discussions were not of sufficient quality, explains one of his relatives to franceinfo. Everyone defends their chapel.”

According to his entourage, Arnaud Montebourg indeed spoke at length about ten days ago with Anne Hidalgo and Jean-Luc Mélenchon then, more recently, with Fabien Roussel. Again on Monday, he was waiting for discussions with Christiane Taubira to continue, without success. “This demonstrates the bankruptcy of the left”, summarizes one of his lieutenants.

After two first attempts at the PS primaries in 2012 and 2017, the former Minister of Productive Recovery of François Hollande had this time launched without the support of a party, in September 2021, presenting himself as the candidate of the ” Ascent from France”.

Arnaud Montebourg then had “offered his candidacy” at “a common project”, December 8. Arnaud Montebourg’s campaign had been marked by controversial remarks in favor of a possible blocking of private money transfers to countries which refuse to accept their nationals subject to a deportation order.

(illustrative image) DEMOGRAPHY... [content] => Array ( [encoded] =>

DEMOGRAPHY ? The milestone of 68 million inhabitants has not yet been crossed, but it could be this year. But with 67,813,000 inhabitants on January 1, 2022, the French population has never been so numerous, notes INSEE in its demographic report published on Tuesday, January 18. We learn that France has gained around 187,000 inhabitants in one year, despite the Covid-19 pandemic.

This 0.3% increase is the same as in 2020 and remains below the pre-coronavirus rate.

This small increase is due in particular to a weakly positive natural balance. The difference between the number of births and deaths is 81,000, which is more than in 2020 (66,200) but significantly lower than 2019 (140,100). After experiencing a decline nine months after the first confinement, the number of births has experienced ?a sharp rise since the summer?. ?The context of the health crisis and strong economic uncertainty may have discouraged couples from procreating in the spring of 2020 and encouraged them to postpone their parenthood plans. Fear of complications during pregnancy may also have played a role. In addition, during the first confinement, medically assisted procreation centers were closed?, notes INSEE.

About 67,000 more deaths from Covid in two years

As for the number of deaths, it remains much higher than it was before Covid. If this curve had already been increasing for a few years due to the aging of the population (the more people there are in the oldest segments of the population, the more the figures for the number of deaths increase), the epidemic has led to a significant excess mortality : about 47,000 more deaths in 2020 and about 20,000 more in 2020.

In the end, it is therefore net migration (difference between arrivals in France and departures) that explains most of the population growth. Provisionally estimated at 140,000, it ?would thus contribute nearly two-thirds to the increase in the population?.

This global demographic report from INSEE also quantifies the expected rebound in the number of marriages. ?After a year 2020 marked by a historic decline (? 31% compared to 2019), the rebound in 2021 almost makes it possible to return to the level of 2019, despite the health restrictions which continued throughout the year?, can we read. About 220,000 marriages have been celebrated, including 6,000 between people of the same sex.

Last consequence of the Covid crisis: it has reduced life expectancy in France. ?Although on the rise, life expectancy does not return to its pre-pandemic level in 2021?, notes INSEE. Women have a life expectancy of 85.4 years (compared to 85.1 years in 2020, but 85.6 in 2019) which is the highest in the European Union. For men, it is 79.3 years (compared to 79.1 in 2020, but 79.7 in 2019), i.e. below Italy and Spain.

DEMOGRAPHY ? The milestone of 68 million inhabitants has not yet been crossed, but it could be this year. But with 67,813,000 inhabitants on January 1, 2022, the French population has never been so numerous, notes INSEE in its demographic report published on Tuesday, January 18. We learn that France has gained around 187,000 inhabitants in one year, despite the Covid-19 pandemic.

This 0.3% increase is the same as in 2020 and remains below the pre-coronavirus rate.

This small increase is due in particular to a weakly positive natural balance. The difference between the number of births and deaths is 81,000, which is more than in 2020 (66,200) but significantly lower than 2019 (140,100). After experiencing a decline nine months after the first confinement, the number of births has experienced ?a sharp rise since the summer?. ?The context of the health crisis and strong economic uncertainty may have discouraged couples from procreating in the spring of 2020 and encouraged them to postpone their parenthood plans. Fear of complications during pregnancy may also have played a role. In addition, during the first confinement, medically assisted procreation centers were closed?, notes INSEE.

About 67,000 more deaths from Covid in two years

As for the number of deaths, it remains much higher than it was before Covid. If this curve had already been increasing for a few years due to the aging of the population (the more people there are in the oldest segments of the population, the more the figures for the number of deaths increase), the epidemic has led to a significant excess mortality : about 47,000 more deaths in 2020 and about 20,000 more in 2020.

In the end, it is therefore net migration (difference between arrivals in France and departures) that explains most of the population growth. Provisionally estimated at 140,000, it ?would thus contribute nearly two-thirds to the increase in the population?.

This global demographic report from INSEE also quantifies the expected rebound in the number of marriages. ?After a year 2020 marked by a historic decline (? 31% compared to 2019), the rebound in 2021 almost makes it possible to return to the level of 2019, despite the health restrictions which continued throughout the year?, can we read. About 220,000 marriages have been celebrated, including 6,000 between people of the same sex.

Last consequence of the Covid crisis: it has reduced life expectancy in France. ?Although on the rise, life expectancy does not return to its pre-pandemic level in 2021?, notes INSEE. Women have a life expectancy of 85.4 years (compared to 85.1 years in 2020, but 85.6 in 2019) which is the highest in the European Union. For men, it is 79.3 years (compared to 79.1 in 2020, but 79.7 in 2019), i.e. below Italy and Spain.

Since the powerful eruption of the Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha’apai volcano on January 15 and the resulting tsunami in the Pacific, the Tonga Islands have had to deal with considerable damage and still remain cut off from the world.

Published on January 18 by Maxar Technologies and Planet Labs PBC, satellite images of Tonga show the extent of the disaster that has affected the Tongan archipelago.

First, the two satellite photographs below show the volcanic island of Tonga before and after the devastating eruption. In the photo on the left taken on January 6, 2022, the Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha’apai releases ash in a thick plume of smoke. As for the photo on the right, it is the same place photographed on January 18, three days after most of the island on which the volcano was located was destroyed by the violent eruptive phenomenon. Only two small islands remain that emerge in the middle of a vast expanse of water. ?What we saw above the water, and which is destroyed now, was only the tip of the volcano that had grown on the edge of the huge underwater volcano,? explained to AFP Heather Handley, Australian volcanologist.

This massive volcanic eruption, which was the largest recorded in decades, created a huge mushroom of smoke and rocks and ash 30 km high and immediately triggered a tsunami. Waves of 1.2 m swept over Nuku’alofa, the capital of the archipelago, located about 65 km from the volcano. Moreover, the country’s authorities announced on January 18 two deaths, including that of a 50-year-old Briton, swept away by the tidal wave.

Falling from the sky, ash and volcanic dust covered the island of Tongotapu on which Nuku’alofa is located by nearly two centimeters. On the left is an image of a residential area in the Tongan capital dated December 29, 2021 and after the eruption, the image on the right shows this same area covered in ash, on January 18, 2022. All vegetation has passed from green to gray under the effect of volcanic fallout. In some areas of the capital, electricity has been restored as well as the local telephone network. But international phone lines and internet connection were still down due to a broken undersea cable connected to the global network.

Located at the northeast end of the island of Tongatapu, the coastal village of Niutoua also bears the scars of the disaster. On the left, the photo dated January 9, 2022 represents it surrounded by green nature with its small spaced houses. On the right, the image taken on January 17, 2022 of Niutoua reveals an unrecognizable town as if suffocated under the dust of Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha’apai. The volcanic ashes have buried the plantations and the crops and the houses seem to have disappeared under the dust.tonga_combo3_880_495_61e6cc2e7ddd1.jpg

A hundred homes were damaged, including 50 destroyed on Tongatapu, the main island of Tonga. Many countries such as Australia, New Zealand and France stand ready to come to the aid of this country of 100,000 inhabitants and to meet the most urgent needs of the population.

But the damage of this major eruptive episode is not limited to the Tongan archipelago. The tsunami had effects as far away as the American, Japanese and Peruvian shores. In Peru, it even claimed two victims who drowned on January 15 in strong waves generated by the tsunami. High waves also caused an oil spill in the province of Callao, not far from Lima.

A little less than a hundred days before the presidential election, in a country jostled by an interminable health crisis, any lack of taste seems difficult to forgive. The revelation, Monday, January 17, by the site Mediapart of the stay spent at the end of 2021 by the Minister of Education, Jean-Michel Blanquer, in Ibiza, a small Balearic island known for its unbridled nightlife, inevitably caused a wave of indignation within the political class.

So yes, there was awkwardness, conceded the minister. ?There is, I recognize, a symbolism (?), the symbolism, I regret it », admitted Mr. Blanquer.

The tenant of the rue de Grenelle is not at his first mea culpa. Four days earlier, he had admitted on Franceinfo ” errors “ linked to the health protocol which had caused chaos in the schools. The minister had been heckled on January 3 for having announced this protocol a few hours before the start of the school year in an interview with the Parisian. Expressing oneself through the press via an article ? at first paid for ? without anticipation gave the feeling of a lack of consideration for education professionals.

Knowing today that this interview was granted by telephone, from Ibiza, and not face-to-face, as the photo of Mr. Blanquer, in front of his office, which appeared in the newspaper, might lead one to believe, takes on the appearance of deception. The editorial director of Parisian-Today in France, Jean-Michel Salvator, regretted on Tuesday a « imprudence », while the editorial staff denied having sought to cover up the minister.

It has become in a few days one of the most downloaded applications in France: with more than a million users, Elyze is one of the successes of the new school year. Launched on January 2, this application for smartphones, available on iOS and Android, aims to help Internet users ?find their candidate? for the next presidential election.

For this, it uses the codes of Tinder and other dating applications. After its installation, Elyze presents the Internet user with a series of proposals. We “swipe” (action of scanning the screen) to the right if we agree, to the left if we don’t. Over time, a profile takes shape, and the application displays the candidates who best match the validated proposals. ?We built this tool to reconcile our generation with the presidential election,? explained Grégoire Cazcarra, one of the two creators of the application, at the beginning of January at World.

If the application had fairly positive initial feedback, the operation of Elyze did not please everyone. Quickly, several Internet users wondered about the proposed results. The “rebellious” candidate for the presidential election, Jean-Luc Mélenchon, denounced a “twisted blow”, Wednesday January 12, on his Twitter account, in response to a tweet affirming that in the event of agreement with all the proposals and therefore with all the candidates, ?Macron finished first, Hidalgo second and Jadot third?.

The founders have quickly defended from any favoritism. In reality, each candidate had been assigned an identifier and, in the event of a tie, the algorithm put forward the candidate with the smallest identifier, explained Point, January 13. One “bug fixed by update” the next day, according to François Mari, co-founder of the application, interviewed by the magazine. This is not the only error since, beyond the bugs, Point also reported that the proposals related to Emmanuel Macron dated from his 2017 campaign, since he has not yet established a program for 2022, still not being an official candidate.

Furthermore, note Release, all the candidates do not have the same number of proposals, and only fifteen among the quarantine already declared are listed.

A false proposal “Fire Jean Castex”

The app also found itself back in the spotlight on January 15, after an engineer, Mathis Hammel, managed to modify one of the proposals. In Emmanuel Macron’s program, he had changed one by:

“Fire Jean Castex and appoint Mathis Hammel in his place”.

“The goal was not to do damage”, he explains to World. The application code is not yet public ? this should be the case in the coming days, assured François Mari to Release ? he embarked on a reverse engineering exercise to understand how the application works (and the reasons behind the bugs) and learn more about this “black box that tells us who to vote for”. This is how he discovered this security flaw. Immediately after successfully changing the proposal, he reverted his changes and sought to contact the Elyze team. The flaw was repaired the next morning.

If he succeeded in accessing the database containing the candidates and their proposals, Mathis Hammel notes however that he did not succeed in accessing that of the users. ?I had no access to data other than my own. It’s a bit reassuring.”, he says:

“I don’t want to overwhelm the developers. The app quickly gained momentum. It is also normal in the first versions to have problems. Especially since they probably did not expect the application to be so successful: basically, it had to be a toy. »

?We designed this app imagining that it would be downloaded by 20,000 people, not 1.2 million. We have been overwhelmed?, confirms François Mari, co-creator of the application, with BFM.

The CNIL monitors

A final problem has been added in recent days with questions regarding the confidentiality of users’ personal data collected by the application. At the first launch of the application, they are invited to fill in a few fields by revealing their date of birth, their gender and their postal code. The application can also be launched without, argue the co-founders, but the “Skip this step” button is much less highlighted than the “Continue” button, which calls for filling in the various fields.

The creators of the application have pledged not to sell ?any data to a political party?

Aware of the “gold mine” on which they sit, the creators of the application are committed not to be sold “no data to a political party or campaign team”, while the memory of the Cambridge Analytica scandal is still in everyone’s mind. ?We said to ourselves that it could be interesting to potentially work with polling institutes, with think tanks, complete, on the other hand, Grégoire Cazcarra in front of the camera of Brut.

The only problem in the exploitation of this data, notes BFM, article 9 of the general regulation on data protection (RGPD), in which it is written that “the processing of personal data which reveals political opinions is prohibited”, unless ?the data subject has given explicit consent for one or more explicit purposes?.

If the co-founders assured, Monday, January 17, that they were going to seek advice from specialized lawyers and from the National Commission for Computing and Liberties (CNIL) ?to see how we can structure the project legally, in order to process and store the data?, the latter announced a few hours later that it had been alerted and was examining the operation of the application, while reserving the possibility of ?use its powers of repression?, in the event of a breach of the GDPR, the General Data Protection Regulation. ?Compliance with these obligations is particularly necessary when sensitive data [données qui révèlent les opinions politiques] are processed”, the regulator told Agence France-Presse, however, stating that it ?cannot comment on the compliance of this application as it stands?.

It was an unusual start to a political show. The LR presidential candidate, Valérie Pécresse, assured Tuesday January 18 that “the law of silence” in terms of violence against women, “It’s finish”. She was speaking at the start of “La France dans les yeux”, the new BFMTV program presented by Jean-Jacques Bourdin, which is the subject of an investigation by the Paris prosecutor’s office following a complaint filed for attempted of sexual assault.

Emphasizing that she had “clearly asked the question” of his participation in the show, the candidate assured that the fight against sexual harassment and violence against women was “a personal fight”. ?Very clearly these accusations, if true, are serious and must be condemned?, she added. “Too long society has looked the other way, closed its eyes” and “too many women were afraid to file a complaint”. “For speech to be freed, women must feel supported. With me, they will be”, she promised.

Valérie Pécresse nevertheless assured that ?it is of course up to the courts to decide? by adding : “I respect the presumption of innocence to which each of our compatriots is entitled”. The journalist assured “contest[r] the facts reported by the press”.

Extended help. Prime Minister Jean Castex announced new support measures for the catering, hotel, event and travel agency sectors in the face of restrictions linked to Covid-19, Tuesday January 18.

Companies with less than 250 employees in these sectors will be able to benefit from a “exceptional assistance with the payment of employee contributions” from a loss of turnover of at least 30% in the months of December and January. This aid will be equal to 20% of the amount of their gross payroll ? i.e. the cost of salaries and charges ? said Jean Castex.

As for companies with less than 250 employees in the same sectors which will lose more than 65% of their turnover, they will receive, for December and January, this same aid for the payment of employee contributions of 20%, but they “will also be exempt from employer charges”, added Jean Castex.

The Prime Minister also welcomed the adoption of an agreement “historical” on rising wages in the hotel and catering industry, after the deadline for unions to sign it expired on Monday evening. The latter provides for a minimum salary 5% higher than the Smic and an average increase of 16.33% of the entire current salary scale. Its application could start between March and April.
