mark zuckerberg was 19 years old when, together with Sean Parker of the same age and Dustin Moskovitz, 24, they co-founded Facebook from a room in Harvard University. The social network that proposed to make the activities of its users public quickly scaled since its creation in February 2004 and today has become a multi-billion dollar company.

Worthy of a technological entrepreneur, the house is located in Silicon Valleythe Californian region where other giants of the field were also born, such as Google Y Apple. No one would have imagined, 18 years ago, that in the blue house with the wooden door one of the most powerful and valuable companies in the world would be invented, now called Goal.

The good news for Zuckerberg fans or the superstitious looking for ?auspicious? spaces is that they can buy the house for $5.3 million.

Its owner at the time, Judy Fusco, was looking for tenants for her house built in 1998 when the trio became interested in renting it.

In an interview with The Post, the owner of the house recalled how Zuckerberg stayed at the door of the house and without even entering asked to rent it, while his two companions did run down the stairs to analyze the property. The decision was immediate and the group of friends agreed to sign a check for US$10,000 that covered the first month?s rent and the deposit.

For the famous tenants, the rent was US $ 5,500 a month

Back then, rent for the six-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom property was $5,500 a month. The curious fact is that, when Fusco asked him what they did for a living, young Mark himself revealed his plan to connect the world.

Nearby the property is the Los Altos Golf and Country Club, Downtown Los Altos, a market for farm products, shops, and restaurants.

The two-story property has a solarium with a transparent roof in which, in the midst of creating Meta, 10 interns slept. A few days passed and the house was overcrowded with engineers who gave life to Facebook. They moved with their computers through the living room with bay windows, a room dedicated to entertaining with good natural light, the dining room and the kitchen with an island in the middle.

The creators could also enjoy the sunny days in the creative process from the gazebo garden. To ensure tranquility, this space is surrounded by a wall that dampens sound.

Lhe term ?ecological planning? has entered the current vocabulary of French politics. The reference to post-World War II planning is justified by the recognition of a common economic and social objective which surpasses all others because it is, strictly speaking, vital. Post-war reconstruction was effectively seen as the only way to lift society out of misery and rationing, and modernization ? the other objective of the plan ? as the only escape from what was perceived as the collapse « malthusia » of civilization between the wars. As today, there was a shared feeling of absolute necessity and the recognition that, despite its imperfections, the state was the adequate form of collective organization capable of guiding society and avoiding catastrophe.

Also listen Ecological planning, what is it for?

Of course, this did not mean that other forms of collective organization and individual freedom should disappear or suffer. Historians and economists will no doubt debate for a long time whether another organization and other policies would have been more beneficial to European economies after 1945, but it is clear that the reconstruction took place and that it was followed by an important process of innovation and modernization, before planning was delegitimized by the economic slump of the 1970s. The main objectives were, for the most part, quickly achieved, which cannot fail to arouse interest today, since actions decisive decisions must be made within a few years.

Within capitalist economies, it is undoubtedly in France that planning was the most theorized and claimed, but many characteristics were shared by other countries, even if – it is obvious when we talk about State intervention ? each country had its particularities and its vocabulary. Planning was based on various principles, some of which can still make sense today: development of technical skills and integration of these within the administrations, vertical (within the same sector of activity) and horizontal (between sectors of activity), European and international integration, reorganization of the financial sector in the service of planning objectives.

Consultation structures

The development of technical skills and the integration of public policies with research were major dimensions of the plan, both within administrations and public and private companies. From ?productivity tasks? to learn foreign technologies, to the development of research departments in large nationalized companies, and the creation of fundamental research centres, everything was organized so that knowledge fed technological objectives. We must not fall into the illusion today that only technology and innovation will get us out of trouble in the face of the environmental crisis, but we can measure how much the energy renovation of buildings or the development of non-carbon energies cannot be achieved without investment in research and training, nor without restructuring the administrations.

Martina Maccari, moglie del futuro capitano della Juve, ha camminato a piedi 26 giorni: la somma verrà donata al reparto di Neurochirurgia dell?ospedale infantile Regina Margherita

Le lacrime scendono copiose non solo sul volto dei protagonisti ma anche dal cielo, che ha deciso di bagnare l?evento. Dopo 26 giorni e 575 km percorsi a piedi, Martina Maccari è stata accolta all?arrivo nel parco del Valentino da una rosa bianca, dal marito Leonardo Bonucci e dai tre figli Leonardo, Matteo e Matilda. È stato commovente ed emozionante vederli corrersi incontro, abbracciarsi e lasciarsi andare. Nessuno è riuscito a evitare di piangere, neppure il prossimo capitano della Juventus, orgoglioso dello sforzo fatto dalla moglie per un?ottima causa.

Donarsi per donare

?  

Oggi infatti si è svolta l?ultima tappa dell?iniziativa di charity ?Sulla stessa strada?, il viaggio a piedi di Martina iniziato il primo maggio (giorno del compleanno di Bonucci) che le ha permesso di raccogliere oltre 170 mila euro. La somma verrà donata al reparto di Neurochirurgia dell?ospedale infantile Regina Margherita della Città della Salute di Torino, dove uno dei figli dei Bonucci è stato ricoverato in passato. Il progetto continuerà a raccogliere fondi fino al prossimo autunno e consentirà alla Onlus Neuroland di acquistare un esoscopio per delicati interventi chirurgici al cervello. La processione laica di Martina ha attraversato 26 comuni e oltre 300 persone si sono unite a lei durante il tragitto, condividendo alcune tappe del percorso. Donarsi per donare è lo slogan di Martina, che ha coinvolto anche altre bianconere ed ex: all?ultima tappa hanno perso parte le mogli di Chiellini e Perin, la compagna del presidente Andrea Agnelli e Alena Seredova.

Fortuna da condividere

?  

?È l?esperienza più bella della mia vita, mi sento piena di felicità. Abbiamo una vita agiata, siamo fortunati ma la nostra fortuna è condividere tutto con gli altri. Sono partita con la speranza che questa iniziativa mi permettesse di realizzare il desiderio di restituzione maturato negli anni. Oggi è un desiderio che si concretizza, con una raccolta fondi andata oltre le aspettative?, ha raccontato Martina, fondatrice di Nettare, il progetto editoriale lanciato a maggio 2021.

Leo, Capitan papà

A Bonucci, con l?aiuto dei suoceri, è toccato il compito di gestire i figli durante l?assenza di Martina: ?I bimbi sono stati bravissimi, non hanno dato minimamente cenno di sofferenza. Abbiamo fatto un calendario del ritorno e ogni giorno mettevamo le x. Dietro al progetto ci sono diversi mesi di lavoro, gli ultimi due sono stati i più intensi. Vogliamo dare un seguito perché donare non si deve fermare qui. Questa storia ci ha legato anche di più a Torino. Martina ha sempre dimostrato di essere molto forte.

Ihe has been an actor for almost thirty years but the world only opened their eyes to him in 2021 with Squid Game. His passport to fame. Since the planetary ramdam of the gore and playful Netflix series, Korean Lee Jung-jae no longer has to worry about tomorrows without a role. At 48, he has seen his popularity explode not only in South Korea but also in the 190 territories where the streaming giant broadcasts the soap opera created by his compatriot Hwang Dong-hyeok.

In Squid Game, Lee Jung-jae embodies this single, broke father who accepts, like 455 other left-behinds, to participate on a remote island in a tournament of deadly games in exchange for an astronomical sum for the winner. The second season is being written, but it was not for the promotion of the fictional phenomenon that Lee flew to the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.

The artist with many hats ? including that of a restaurant and real estate entrepreneur in Korea (!) ? inaugurated a career as a director with Hunt. An excellent spy thriller screened on the Croisette in a parallel section and which, in France, will soon be distributed by The Jokers under a model that has yet to be determined (theater? video? streaming?? The matter is not settled ). We saw Hunt and the result has us rather electrified.

A labyrinthine scenario

The story of a North Korean mole hunt within the secret services of Seoul, carried out by two rival agents in a country plagued by tensions in the early 1980s, the film reveals a director who is damn good at drawing firefights. . Between Heat (all things considered!) and Infernal Affairs, the manhunt orchestrated by Lee Jung-jae, who also granted himself one of the two main roles, impresses with his mastery of the frame and his cutting? but sins by a labyrinthine scenario to stick you a migraine of horse. Especially in the original Korean version, where literally every subtitle counts so as not to lose the thread: a blink of an eye at the wrong time and hello bewilderment! Some of the festival-goers who had the bad idea to see Hunt during its first screening, in a midnight session, felt the weight of their eyelids and the drunken evenings of the previous day pass?

Gun ballets a la John Woo

Rooted in the bloody turmoil that preceded the democratic transition in South Korea, from 1988, the framework of Hunt takes place under the last fires of a US-backed anti-Communist military dictatorship. A few introductory cards happily inform the uninitiated viewer about the geopolitics in place: in view of the intertwining games of dupes between the two Koreas and the United States or even between the KCIA (the South -Korean, equivalent of the CIA or our DGSE) and the local military police, these few pieces of information in the preamble are welcome?

Nevertheless: despite the mashed peas awaiting the distracted spectators, Hunt is distinguished by a striking style, many ballets of guns à la John Woo and we would not be surprised if Hollywood offers, one day, a more accessible remake for the average person. Nor that its director gives in to the Californian sirens if they knock on his door: “Of course, it would be a dream experience for me, but I will only work there for projects based above all on the story and the characters”, promises Lee Jung-jae, via an interpreter doing the translation from Korean to English.

READ ALSO“Squid Game”: behind the scenes of a global obsession

Elegant as a lord in his gray white shirt suit, the actor/director/businessman was 13 years old during the student demonstrations repressed by the power in place in the mid-1980s. A harsh traumatic period for the Korean generation X (which had marked just as much Bong-Joon ho, the director ofOkja et Parasite) and of which Lee has not forgotten any detail: ?The streets crowded with demonstrators, the charges of the police, the tear gas? I wanted to show this story. And also understand why Koreans can be so conflicted with each other for so long. Each of the two camps is convinced that its beliefs are more legitimate than the other and, in this rivalry, the control of information and propaganda are crucial. Five years ago, I started thinking about this spy thriller about the use of disinformation for strategic purposes. In the era of fake news in 2022, it’s still relevant. »

Season 2 of ?Squid Game? will be an even stronger dramaturgical rollercoaster than Season 1!Lee Jung-jae

After writing his script, Lee Jung-jae says he tried to have it directed by others only to finally throw himself into the water behind the camera, without even hiring the services of a second-team director for the many action scenes: “I saw a lot of films of the genre, Western and Korean, but I still tried to find my own style, a new concept for gunfights, which I wanted to be both brief and hard-hitting” , completes our interlocutor, whose life and career have been turned upside down by Squid Game. ?I have always worked, but, yes, there is a before and an after Squid Game. Besides, I never fully understood the controversy surrounding the fact that children reproduce the games seen in the series during recess. I played all those games myself when I was their age! Thanks to this success, I receive proposals every day and I prepare projects for Korea but also for abroad. I am writing two more scripts that I would like to make. »

We won’t really know more, except that Lee Jung-jae intends to continue shooting action scenes. And the sequel to Squid Game in all of that ? “Hwang Dong-hyeok is still writing it, filming will start next fall for a 2023 broadcast. Hwang told me it was going to be a much stronger dramaturgical rollercoaster than Season 1.” Tintin for our scoop hunt, but all this is said with such kindness and such a disarming smile that we will be satisfied with it! In the meantime, track Hunt upon its release, announced for the end of August on French screens: a revelation of action cinema has just emerged with Lee Jung-jae.

Ihe has been an actor for almost thirty years but the world only opened their eyes to him in 2021 with Squid Game. His passport to fame. Since the planetary ramdam of the gore and playful Netflix series, Korean Lee Jung-jae no longer has to worry about tomorrows without a role. At 48, he has seen his popularity explode not only in South Korea but also in the 190 territories where the streaming giant broadcasts the soap opera created by his compatriot Hwang Dong-hyeok.

In Squid Game, Lee Jung-jae embodies this single, broke father who accepts, like 455 other left-behinds, to participate on a remote island in a tournament of deadly games in exchange for an astronomical sum for the winner. The second season is being written, but it was not for the promotion of the fictional phenomenon that Lee flew to the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.

The artist with many hats ? including that of a restaurant and real estate entrepreneur in Korea (!) ? inaugurated a career as a director with Hunt. An excellent spy thriller screened on the Croisette in a parallel section and which, in France, will soon be distributed by The Jokers under a model that has yet to be determined (theater? video? streaming?? The matter is not settled ). We saw Hunt and the result has us rather electrified.

A labyrinthine scenario

The story of a North Korean mole hunt within the secret services of Seoul, carried out by two rival agents in a country plagued by tensions in the early 1980s, the film reveals a director who is damn good at drawing firefights. . Between Heat (all things considered!) and Infernal Affairs, the manhunt orchestrated by Lee Jung-jae, who also granted himself one of the two main roles, impresses with his mastery of the frame and his cutting? but sins by a labyrinthine scenario to stick you a migraine of horse. Especially in the original Korean version, where literally every subtitle counts so as not to lose the thread: a blink of an eye at the wrong time and hello bewilderment! Some of the festival-goers who had the bad idea to see Hunt during its first screening, in a midnight session, felt the weight of their eyelids and the drunken evenings of the previous day pass?

Gun ballets a la John Woo

Rooted in the bloody turmoil that preceded the democratic transition in South Korea, from 1988, the framework of Hunt takes place under the last fires of a US-backed anti-Communist military dictatorship. A few introductory cards happily inform the uninitiated viewer about the geopolitics in place: in view of the intertwining games of dupes between the two Koreas and the United States or even between the KCIA (the South -Korean, equivalent of the CIA or our DGSE) and the local military police, these few pieces of information in the preamble are welcome?

Nevertheless: despite the mashed peas awaiting the distracted spectators, Hunt is distinguished by a striking style, many ballets of guns à la John Woo and we would not be surprised if Hollywood offers, one day, a more accessible remake for the average person. Nor that its director gives in to the Californian sirens if they knock on his door: “Of course, it would be a dream experience for me, but I will only work there for projects based above all on the story and the characters”, promises Lee Jung-jae, via an interpreter doing the translation from Korean to English.

READ ALSO“Squid Game”: behind the scenes of a global obsession

Elegant as a lord in his gray white shirt suit, the actor/director/businessman was 13 years old during the student demonstrations repressed by the power in place in the mid-1980s. A harsh traumatic period for the Korean generation X (which had marked just as much Bong-Joon ho, the director ofOkja et Parasite) and of which Lee has not forgotten any detail: ?The streets crowded with demonstrators, the charges of the police, the tear gas? I wanted to show this story. And also understand why Koreans can be so conflicted with each other for so long. Each of the two camps is convinced that its beliefs are more legitimate than the other and, in this rivalry, the control of information and propaganda are crucial. Five years ago, I started thinking about this spy thriller about the use of disinformation for strategic purposes. In the era of fake news in 2022, it’s still relevant. »

Season 2 of ?Squid Game? will be an even stronger dramaturgical rollercoaster than Season 1!Lee Jung-jae

After writing his script, Lee Jung-jae says he tried to have it directed by others only to finally throw himself into the water behind the camera, without even hiring the services of a second-team director for the many action scenes: “I saw a lot of films of the genre, Western and Korean, but I still tried to find my own style, a new concept for gunfights, which I wanted to be both brief and hard-hitting” , completes our interlocutor, whose life and career have been turned upside down by Squid Game. ?I have always worked, but, yes, there is a before and an after Squid Game. Besides, I never fully understood the controversy surrounding the fact that children reproduce the games seen in the series during recess. I played all those games myself when I was their age! Thanks to this success, I receive proposals every day and I prepare projects for Korea but also for abroad. I am writing two more scripts that I would like to make. »

We won’t really know more, except that Lee Jung-jae intends to continue shooting action scenes. And the sequel to Squid Game in all of that ? “Hwang Dong-hyeok is still writing it, filming will start next fall for a 2023 broadcast. Hwang told me it was going to be a much stronger dramaturgical rollercoaster than Season 1.” Tintin for our scoop hunt, but all this is said with such kindness and such a disarming smile that we will be satisfied with it! In the meantime, track Hunt upon its release, announced for the end of August on French screens: a revelation of action cinema has just emerged with Lee Jung-jae.

After the 750 billion euros in loans and grants from the Next Generation EU plan, here is the 210 billion euros from the REPowerEU plan. Born of two emergencies, Covid-19 and the war in Ukraine, they have in common to aim for increased coordination of the industrial policies of the Member States in key sectors and to place, for the decades to come, the public investments of infrastructure at the heart of European economic integration.

However, if industrial policies and public infrastructure investments must be financed in an accelerated manner, we also need new forms of coordination in their financing. How can we move away from the deflationary rigor of the old stability pact towards a configuration in which the expansion of fiscal policy does not generate financial instability?

Also listen Ecological planning, what is it for?

It is a question of passing from a logic of competition between States with a view to accessing the financial markets, under the assumption of their flawless efficiency, to a logic of cooperation between the States vis-à-vis the markets, in order to prevent potential irrationality.

Such would be the task of a ?European debt agency? (EDA), the idea of ??which was launched on December 23, 2021 in a forum by MM. Draghi and Macron at Financial Times. Arguing for new European rules that are more favorable to investments, the Italian and French leaders mention the project of a « agence » to manage the debts of the euro zone linked to Covid-19.

The German objection

But now, we must dare to go further. Because the situation in which Europe finds itself calls for no longer distinguishing between ?normal? debt and ?exceptional? debt. Nevertheless, the German objection to any pooling of the debt, reaffirmed by the Minister of Finance, Christian Lindner, in an interview in March at the Corriere della Seraretains its full meaning: each member country must remain responsible for its budgetary policy without asking for help from other countries, and above all from their taxpayers.

Is it possible to build an EDA that is both non-mutualistic and cooperative, capable of absorbing all the debt of the euro zone, past and future, and even of helping the transition of the European Union (EU) towards a central fiscal capacity? This is the configuration we have been offering since 2020, with a team of fellow economists in Italy and France.

Also read the column: Article reserved for our subscribers ?Sweden offers a particularly interesting case of ecological planning?

The AED which, thanks to adequate capitalization, would benefit from a AAA rating, and therefore from the best market rates, would issue its own securities fixed term, but it would lend the funds raised to member countries saccording to a perpetual loan scheme. This would allow all countries to protect themselves from the refinancing risk linked to market expectations which, as shown by the sovereign debt crisis in 2012, can seriously underestimate the ?country risk? and impose unsustainable rates.

This Tuesday afternoon Golden State was preparing in Dallas to play the fourth point of the Conference final against the Mavericksa match that could define that same night the champion of the West and the first finalist of the 2021/22 season of the NBA. the warriors they came with a 3-0 lead and wanted to secure the series before returning to San Francisco. However, in the run-up to such an important match, all of that was left aside for Steve Kerrwho once again He showed that he is much more than just one of the best coaches in the NBA.

It is that in the middle of a press conference before the game, he surprised the journalists present, he left basketball aside for a few minutes and starred in a heartbreaking and forceful speech that went viral on social networks, made headlines around the world and is certainly worth listening to. It all happened after the information was known that 19 students and 2 teachers were murdered that same afternoon in a Texas elementary school, after a shooter entered the establishment armed with at least two firearms. ?

??I?m not going to talk about basketball. Nothing has happened with our team in the last six hours. Let?s start the same way tonight. Any basketball question doesn?t matter.? the coach advanced, before beginning his release. ?Since we got out of training, 14 kids have been killed 400 miles from here. And one teacher,? Kerr said, referring

He continued, ?In the last 10 days, we?ve had elderly black men murdered in a supermarket in Buffalo, we?ve had Asian churchgoers murdered in Southern California. Now we have children murdered at school. When are we going to do something? I?m tired. I am so tired of offering condolences to the devastated families out there. I am so tired. Excuse me. I am sorry. I?m tired of the minutes of silence.?


The moment of Kerr?s speech

Along the same lines, he noted: ?There are 50 senators right now who refuse to vote on HR8, which is a background check bill that the House passed a couple of years ago. and it?s been sitting there for two years. And there?s a reason they won?t vote for him: to stay in power.?

The initiative, known as HR8, was approved by the House of Representatives in 2021, but continues to be held in the upper house of Congress.

?So I ask you, Mitch McConnell (Senate Republican Leader), I ask all of you Senators who refuse to do anything about violence, school shootings and grocery store shootings. I ask you:Are you going to put your own desire for power ahead of the lives of our children and our elderly and our parishioners? Because that?s what it looks like,? he added, visibly affected.


The moment of Kerr?s speech

And he completed: ?We can not become insensitive to this. We can not sit here and just read about this and say, well, let?s have a moment of silence, yes. ?Go Dubs. Come on, Mavs, let?s go. That?s what we?re going to do. Let?s go play a basketball game.?

?Fifty senators in Washington are holding us hostage. Do you realize that 90% of Americans, regardless of political party, want background checks, universal background checks? 90% of us. We are being held hostage by 50 senators in Washington who refuse to even put it to a vote, despite what we, the American people, want.?

?They won?t vote for him because they want to hold on to their own power. It?s pathetic! I?ve had enough!?, he closed before getting up and leaving the room. Kerr, who is one of the most respected people in the NBA environment, was also the victim of a similar tragedy. On January 18, 1984, Malcolm Kerr, his father and university professor specializing in the Middle East and the Arab world, he was killed by armed men while he was rector of the American University of Beirut.

Two members of a radical Islamic group shot him twice in the head. Kerr himself told it in the documentary The Last Dance: ?I received a phone call in the middle of the night from a family friend. My phone rang in my bedroom at three o?clock in the morning, so I knew something was up. Basketball was the only thing I could do to distract myself from what happened. So I went to train the next day. I didn?t know what else to do.?

Since we got out of training, 14 kids have been killed 400 miles from here. And a teacher. In the last 10 days, we?ve had elderly Black men killed in a supermarket in Buffalo, we?ve had Asian churchgoers killed in Southern California. Now we have children murdered at school.

When are we going to do something? I?m tired. I am so tired of coming up here and offering condolences to the devastated families out there. I am so tired. Excuse me. I am sorry. I?m tired of the minutes of silence. Enough!

There are 50 senators right now who are refusing to vote on HR8, which is a background check bill that the House passed a couple of years ago and has been sitting there for two years. And there?s a reason they won?t vote for him: to stay in power.

So I?m asking you, Mitch McConnell, I?m asking all of you senators who refuse to do anything about the violence, the school shootings and the supermarket shootings. I ask you: Are you going to put your own desire for power ahead of the lives of our children and our elderly and our parishioners? Because that?s what it looks like. It?s what we do every week.

So I?m fed up. I?ve had enough. Let?s play the game tonight. But I want every person here, every person listening to this, to think of their own child or grandchild, or mother or father, sister, brother. How would you feel if this happened to you today?

We cannot become insensitive to this. We can?t sit here and just read about this and say, well, let?s have a moment of silence, yeah. ?Go Dubs. Come on, Mavs, let?s go. That?s what we?re going to do. We are going to play a basketball game.

Fifty senators in Washington are holding us hostage. Do you realize that 90 percent of Americans, regardless of political party, want background checks, universal background checks? Ninety percent of us. We are being held hostage by 50 senators in Washington who refuse to even put it to a vote, despite what we, the American people, want.

They won?t vote for him because they want to hold on to their own power. It?s pathetic! I?ve had enough!

Doncic also spoke of the shooting

Luka Doncic, Dallas figure, showed his sadness and pain for the shooting in which at least 19 children were killed in a Texas school. ?I don?t think anything could be worse. It?s a disaster. I think that shouldn?t happen anywhere,? Doncic said, noting that he felt ?very sorry? for this tragedy.

In the match, a minute?s silence was finally observed before the start of the game.

Loss to Dallas

The Mavericks saved their first elimination game on Tuesday and made it 1-3 in the West final against Golden State. It was a 119-109 victory thanks to a collective exhibition of triples and a Luka Doncic who was only one assist away from the triple-double.

The Warriors suffered a rain of triples from the Mavericks (a fantastic 20-43) and, despite the fact that it also rained inside the stadium, something that caused leaks and forced the start of the third quarter to be delayed, the water did not complicate a spectacular Doncic, who finished the match with 30 points (10-26 from the field), 14 rebounds, 9 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks.

Dallas dazzled in the first three quarters and started the last with a +29 that seemed definitive, but the second unit of the Warriors got to 8 points and Doncic had to give one more push to close the victory.

Stephen Curry (20 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists) was the best for the Warriors who were a disappointing 10-for-28 from 3-point range.

The Western final now returns to San Francisco, where the fifth game will be played on Thursday and where the Mavericks will seek to maintain the level shown this part to achiever what no one has done before in the NBA: come back from 3-0 down in the playoffs (146-0 in history for teams that won the first three games).

Long in front of the score, Saint-Etienne finally conceded the draw against AJ Auxerre Thursday evening in the first leg of the Ligue 1 accession.

The return match scheduled for Sunday evening at Geoffroy-Guichard promises to be heated between two teams of a relatively similar level. Thursday, the supporters of Saint-Etienne believed for a moment that this barrage would be a formality against Auxerre with the opening of the score of the Greens from the first quarter of an hour. But what followed was much more complicated for Pascal Dupraz’s team, who delivered a disappointing second half against a more enterprising AJA team. The equalizer came quite logically after the rest for the Burgundians, whose reception left much to be desired according to Pascal Dupraz. In a press conference after his team’s draw in Auxerre, the ASSE coach regretted the conditions of the organization of the AJA match. Pascal Dupraz notably mentions a problem with the air conditioner in the Saint-Etienne locker room.

Dupraz regrets the reception conditions in Auxerre


?Why did I leave the locker room at the break? From the moment the air conditioning doesn’t work in the locker room, it’s 35 or 40 degrees? Has Guy Roux been there? I do not know. From then on, we make sure that there are as few people as possible in the dressing room so that the players can breathe once I have given the changes I wanted to make. I came out. The visitors’ locker room is very small and the air conditioning? We knew about the stinginess of Mr. Guy Roux, he must have been emulated. They only turned on the air conditioning when warming up the players. I was cool but I was the only one present. It was then quickly extinguished. Guy Roux? I could give him the address of a refrigeration specialist.” joked Pascal Dupraz, laughing nevertheless quite yellow. And for good reason, the half did not take place under normal conditions according to him. Saint-Etienne will certainly be able to remember this on Sunday during the return match at Geoffroy-Guichard.

For the past few days, passers-by have no longer been able to buy a phone or accessory in the Orange store on the Champs-Elysées in Paris. The point of sale is permanently closed. Presented as the group’s new generation store when it was inaugurated in September 2015 by former CEO Stéphane Richard, this “smart store” (supposed to offer an improvement in the customer experience) did not resist the drop in attendance caused by the crisis linked to Covid-19.

Symbolically, the closure of the flagship of the Champs-Elysées hides a deeper reflection of the operator on the perimeter of its distribution network. A meticulous tour of France has already led to 38 store closures in 2021, i.e. around 10% of the park, reduced to 323 ?distribution agencies?. Including those taken over by General Telephone (GDT), a 100% subsidiary of Orange built on the former network of Photo Service and Photo Station shops, the net cut is approaching fifteen closures.

In Grasse (Alpes-Maritimes), where the Orange store lowered the curtain on May 21, as in the dozens of other municipalities concerned, the closure created a form of excitement. ?The people of Grasse now have to drive an hour round trip to get to the nearest shop in Cannes. This loss of proximity is also a decline in the right to public service in terms of communication?deplores Rémi Demouveaux, secretary general of the CGT FAPT of the department.

“Drop in attendance”

?A network must constantly adapt to changing consumption patterns. This is why we carry out around thirty operations each year, whether relocations, renovations or closures?replies Frédéric Le Mounier, director of shops and customer services at Orange France, who defends himself from abandoning city centers in favor of shopping centers on the outskirts. ?Half of our points of sale are still in the heart of cities? and, according to an indicator that he says he monitors closely, 87% of the population is less than thirty minutes from a store in the colors of the operator.

In 2019, half of commercial acts were done in stores. In 2021, it was only 38%

If it started before the health crisis, the reorganization of the network becomes more urgent after the pandemic. ?We anticipated a downward trend in the number of visits to our stores. But the Covid has upset these forecasts by saving us five years in our traffic projections., explains Mr. Le Mounier. In 2019, half of commercial acts were done in stores. In 2021, it was only 38%.

German veterans of the Scorpions announced theirs years ago definitive end, but fortunately they did not keep their word for the fans. This year they released a new album “Rock Believer”, with which they went on a spectacular tour. One of the stops was the O2 arena in Prague and we couldn’t miss it.

Returning fans to clubs and halls is not as easy as we all hoped, and even the O2 arena was not completely packed with the performance of the European hard rock legend, although it was not far from that. In any case, the composition of the visitors was predictable, the core was formed by older rockers in denim jackets with appliques Iron Maiden, Judas Priest or just Scorpions. But there were a number of younger vintages, even teenagers, who proudly bought the band merch. The Agony girls’ quartet opened the evening. The backing band was selected from a poll, where it was shortlisted by fans along with several other formations, from which the Scorpions themselves chose these girls. For example, the popular rockers Krucipüsk, who also entered the poll, were beaten. For The Agony, this is a huge success that the musicians on stage enjoyed. Their almost half-hour set was quite juice. The honest hard rock of the classic style with an overlap into the metal present amused and appreciated the distinctive guitar riffs. Although The Agony are mainly a club formation, they managed the size of the O2 arena more than well and fulfilled their role excellently.

The Scorpions started with German precision just in time. After tearing down the curtain with the band’s logo, another joke appeared with the inscription “Are You Ready To Rock?”. But the main stars were already hiding behind her, who immediately had a taste of the new album “Rock Believer”. The song “Gas in the Tank” is the hardest piece of news and a good choice for the start of the concert. However, conservative fans did not welcome the new song very much. At least their reaction was rather lukewarm. But together with the first song, the audience could enjoy huge screens with a bit kitschy but very effective graphics that changed with each song. Right with the opener, we were able to watch a giant digital scorpion clapping claws to the beat of Mikkey Dee’s drums. In addition to “Gas in the Tank”, the band played four other novelties scattered along the length of the setlist. There was also a single “Peacemaker” or the title “Rock Believer”. The smiling moment came during the acoustically performed “The Language of My Heart”, which the band included in its program for the second time. Singer Klaus Meine got stuck shortly after it started and forgot the lyrics. He apologized to the fans with an explanation, explaining that this was a novelty. Even the most experienced rockers sometimes get confused.

For the second time, it worked and the peaceful ballad left room for one of the biggest hits of the “Send Me an Angel” formation, which was sung by the entire arena. The band then dedicated another hit “Wind of Change” to Ukraine, and even changed the lyrics in its favor. Finally, a peace symbol in the familiar yellow-blue colors appeared on the screens. Before there were two extras, in the form of another ballad “Still Loving You” and of course the anthem “Rock You Like a Hurricane”, the excellent solo was edited first by bassist Pawe? M?ciwoda, but especially by drummer Mikkey Dee, who performed on stage for a good fifteen minutes. If Klaus Maine and his team watched the hockey loss of Germany with our national team that day, it was not known about their performance. There were proven recipes in the form of a glowing Czech flag, a few words in our language or a relief over the end of the pandemic. In addition to his instrumental rampage, guitarist Rudolf Schenker delighted our capital with a T-shirt.

The Scorpions, despite perhaps a slightly colder audience, played a hilarious concert. The band itself tried, ran around the stage, roared the fans and the soundtrack, which did a good job in the sometimes complicated O2 arena, did not throw the sticks at their feet. After ninety minutes, the viewer could go home with the feeling that he had seen a piece of rock history and heard hits that would not age. And they probably won’t even age, although some of them will soon celebrate half a century.
