Insurance companies may be banned from using data from fitness trackers and health apps. They should also not let their prices and coverage depend on a customer’s willingness to install such an app. The Economics Committee of the House has approved a PS bill to that effect.

Electronics manufacturers are now bringing fitness trackers and (their smarter brothers) smartwatches onto the market en masse. The gadgets track physical activities, record calories burned, monitor body weight, monitor the risk of high blood pressure or diabetes, or measure sleep quality.

Distinguish between healthy and less healthy

All registered data ends up in a health app on the smartphone. The data can offer perspectives in the medical field, but according to the authors of the bill there are risks in the insurance field. For example, there are foreign examples of insurers requiring access to such data in order to offer certain benefits, enabling them to immediately distinguish between healthy and less healthy people.

The model for car liability insurance already exists in Belgium pay as you drive. A device is installed in the vehicle that registers certain parameters, such as braking, acceleration or the maintained speed. It then depends on these measurements whether an advantageous rate is obtained. The PS wants to prevent a similar system from seeing the light of day in the health field.

‘Health insurance must be based on a model based on partial or complete mutual insurance of the risks of illness, without discrimination based on health status’, said MP Christophe Lacroix.

To stay up to date with African news, subscribe to the ?Monde Afrique? newsletter from this link. Every Saturday at 6 a.m., find a week of current events and debates treated by the editorial staff of World Africa.

To Ouagadougou, in 2019.

The files are piling up on the office of the magistrates of the counterterrorism pole of Burkina Faso. In the case of this “14 year old fighter” to that of a “50-year-old Koranic teacher” radicalized, going through these “Women used for food supply”, the inquiries are multiplying ad infinitum.

Each new attack on Burkinabé territory is supposed to lead to the opening of a judicial investigation. But faced with the spread of violence, the task is « impossible » and it needs “Sort according to the seriousness of the facts”, regrets the prosecutor Emile Zerbo. Here, in the premises of the specialized judicial center created in 2017, there are only four investigating judges for 459 cases. “It’s too little, we are overwhelmed”, breaths one of them. “They should have been at least fifty, but the lack of trained magistrates was a big obstacle”, recognizes the Minister of Justice, Victoria Ouédraogo Kibora.

For almost a year, The World Africa investigated the slowness and difficulties of anti-terrorism justice in Burkina Faso. Six years after the start of jihadist violence which left more than 1,500 civilians dead in this Sahel country according to the NGO Acled, a milestone was crossed in August with the opening of the first trials of suspected terrorists.

?We closed the first cases in 2018 and we were ready to judge the others in 2019 », insists the district attorney. But faced with the terrorist threat that also hangs over judicial actors, the authorities preferred to wait for the construction of a new courthouse, more secure and suitable for the holding of these very sensitive trials. On May 18, seven years after its creation decree, the Ouaga II tribunal de grande instance (TGI) opened its doors in Karpala, on the outskirts of Ouagadougou.

Sentences of up to twenty-one years in prison

From August 9 to 13, a “Exceptional device” composed of elements of the prison security guard, patrols and escorts of the police and the gendarmerie, searches and porticoes at the entrance, had to be deployed around the TGI, according to the Minister of Justice. All for a cost of ” Several dozens “ millions of CFA francs (several tens of thousands of euros).

A dozen defendants were called to the bar for this first trial session of the anti-terrorism pole. For the first time since 2015, five defendants were sentenced to terms of up to 21 years in prison. But five cases had to be returned, some defendants seeking a lawyer. And barely started, the session was suspended on the fourth day due to a strike by prison security guards, with no resumption date being announced.

In the room exhaling the smell of fresh paint, exasperation was felt. An impatience to which the district attorney tries to answer: ?We have to go at our own pace and avoid the show trial. The time of justice should not be that of emotion “, underlines Emile Zerbo.

It must be said that in Burkina Faso, the terrorist threat is still a recent phenomenon. Jihadist groups rarely claim responsibility for their attacks, and fighters wear nicknames to cover their tracks. The investigative work is tedious and sprawling. “It takes a lot of files to go back to the head of a network”, explains the prosecutor.

Interrogations can last several months, slowed down by the “Lack of cooperation”, the “Denials” suspects and the language barrier. With a single interpreter, in Fufulde (the Fulani dialect) and in Arabic, for the entire pole, the magistrates are obliged to coordinate so as not to conduct their interviews at the same time.

Evidence is also hard to find. Sometimes the perpetrators are killed in the assault, the accomplices have fled, the weapons have disappeared … “One can have clues, a denunciation or suspicious telephone contacts, but a material element proving the membership of a group, it is complex”, indicates an investigating judge who wishes to speak on condition of anonymity for security reasons (like other witnesses interviewed by the World Africa for this survey).

The situation becomes even more complicated when the attackers cross the border to take refuge in Mali or Niger. The mutual legal assistance protocol between neighboring countries is cumbersome and can drag on “Up to two years”, indicates Emile Zerbo.

A high security prison in an undisclosed location

Operational since 2019, a Special Anti-Terrorism Investigations Brigade (BSIAT), attached to the Ministry of Security, is responsible for analyzing crime scenes, collecting evidence and searching for perpetrators.

But in the field, this shadow squad lacks resources, including listening and surveillance systems, drones or armored vehicles. Its staff (48 judicial police officers) are constrained. And the only two forensic scientists are quickly overwhelmed by the scale of the massacres, which can exceed a hundred victims per village.

These difficulties are reinforced by the inaccessibility of entire swathes of Burkinabé territory due to the presence of armed groups or explosive devices on the tracks. According to our information, the day after the Solhan massacre, in the north of the country (at least 160 dead on June 5, according to the official report), the officers of the brigade had to be helicoptered to carry out the investigation on the spot. A few hours later, the attackers returned to the scene.

In these areas, the few witnesses fear reprisals from the jihadists if they speak out, while the suspects hide among the population. “We had to explain to the officers the difference between a radical and a terrorist, explains a source from the pole. At first, some of them stopped locals based on their clothes or the way they prayed. “

In Burkina Faso, people suspected of an act or financing of terrorism can be arrested and then kept in pre-trial detention for the duration of the investigation, until the hearing of the judgment. The result: around 900 suspected terrorists are currently crammed into the too narrow cells of the high-security prison where the country’s most dangerous detainees are kept and whose location is kept secret, near the capital.

The congestion of this establishment, which records an occupancy rate of 200%, is stirring up criticism. “Many files are empty, people are kept on the basis of suspicion or anonymous denunciations and have sometimes never been heard”, denounces the lawyer Ambroise Farama. Some detainees have been held there for more than four years.

Lawyers worry about becoming targets

In an attempt to speed up and streamline the investigation, the authorities have decided to correct criminal proceedings. Since the adoption of the new Code of Criminal Procedure in 2019, the assistance of a lawyer is optional for suspected terrorists and is their responsibility. “In a context where the major concern is to secure our populations, the State does not have the means to appoint a lawyer for everyone”, justifies Minister Victoria Ouédraogo Kibora.

Especially since lawyers are also worried about being targets. The state can provide close security to some magistrates, but they have to fend for themselves. During the first trials in August, the defense benches remained empty. “They are afraid of exposing themselves”, tries to explain a lawyer. In addition to the fear of reprisals from armed groups, that of public opinion also weighs heavily. In Burkina, defending a suspected jihadist remains poorly understood by part of the population.

“We are confused with our customers, who are seen as monsters”, continues this lawyer, reporting to have received ” death threats “ on social networks because of the forty cases he defended.

Summary of the series “Burkina: a punishment against terrorism”

The feeling of injustice continues to worsen in Burkina Faso, where jihadist attacks, intercommunal reprisals and abuses blamed on the security forces have left more than 3,700 dead since 2015, according to the latest count from the NGO Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (Acled).

Faced with the spiral of violence, the families of the victims demand the right to the truth and to compensation. But in the field, the investigations are long and tedious. Between security threats and the lack of resources, the magistrates of the specialized pole are struggling to carry out their mission. In the meantime, around 900 suspected terrorists are crowding into the cells of the country’s high security prison, near Ouagadougou.

While on August 9, for the first time in six years, five jihadists were sentenced in the country, The World Africa investigated the difficulties of anti-terrorism justice and the path of detainees and their families.

22.34 Gianmaria: “I don’t want to be in a war between them, if there is confusion in Sophie I take all the responsibility because that’s what I did when I entered here saying first one thing and then another”

22.32 Soleil: «In Sophie I see a constant confusion, or they are made for each other or they are strategists, we’ll see». Sophie: ?It is true in me that there is a lot of confusion and in general it is not like that. There are moments in which I take away the rationality and let myself go to the attraction that is there, then I don’t regret it but I feel many things. I’m afraid of hurting me but also him “

22.23 Three-way confrontation between Gianmaria, Soleil and Sophie. Let’s review the clip on this triangle

GF Vip, Katia Ricciarelli furious with Jo Squillo: “Enough now or I’ll commit a murder!”

22.15 Jo “I always say what I think”. Signorini closes the confrontation, Ricciarelli returns: “Thanks Alfonso, otherwise I’ll commit a murder”

11.22 Adriana Volpe asks Jo to be more direct, but she does not give in to provocation. “We are not aiming for the trite between solidarity between women, but this does not mean that we cannot have a dialectic”

22.08 Ricciarelli “You are intruded in the conversation between Carmen and me, that she does not say things with malice, practically the liar would be me”. Jo “Your positions are legitimate, because it is an offensive phrase (Carne’s phrase” I have a family “deeply offended Ricciarelli ed,), but objectively Carmen has always been nice”

22.05 Katia: “If you want me to talk to you you have to answer me because you threatened me, explain it to a poor idiot who doesn’t understand things.” Jo «You want things to be told as you like them, there are so many little things that we don’t like, but out of respect for your person I don’t. I never throw this thing at her, I have always defended you and it happens, you always have an angry way of speaking and I am calm ». Ricciarelli yells at her to shut up

22.02 In the last episode, Katia and Jo, during the nominations, confronted each other without discounts. Let’s review the clip

22.00 Patrizia Mirigliani on the catwalk ready to meet her son Nicola, but it’s not the time yet

21.57 A great moment of emotion that involves everyone, like Aldo Montano who bursts into tears “I lived my life making myself a champion’s shield, then with my family that armor I have it aside, now I look at life from another point of sight and Manuel the other night, with that music and those words, made me collapse “

21.52 Alfonso Signorini enters the studio, as last Friday his eyes are still shining, he is probably still affected. Before starting the show we see the clip of Bortuzzo playing the piano

GFVip, Alfonso Signorini live with a fever of 38. A storm breaks out: “And the Covid regulations?”

21.48 The advances of Alfonso Signorini: the tia continues and quits between Miriana and Nicola and Patrizia Mirigliani is ready to enter the house. Gianparia and Sophie got together again by surprise. The fury of Ricciarelli on Jo Squillo

During the last episode, during the nominations, Katia Ricciarelli and Jo Squillo (Courtesy of the Endemol Shine Italy press office) had a heated discussion that continued into the following hours. At the root of the misunderstanding is Jo’s attitude that Katia considers a bit too much like Pontius Pilate.

Tonight the two women will be the protagonists of a face to face: will they be able to clarify?

In the Cinecittà loft a piano has arrived for Manuel Bortuzzo who did not miss the opportunity to introduce his roommates to another of his greatest passions: that for music. Manuel played several pieces and in particular one by the singer Ultimo who moved the House and the audience of ?Gf Vip?.

There will be many more or less pleasant surprises for the Vippos: Gianmaria Antinolfi will have the opportunity to see his brother and Nicola Pisu his mother Patrizia Mirigliani.

Sono finite in nomination: Ainett Stephens, Carmen Russo e Soleil Sorge. What will be the verdict of televoting?

A device that is built for extreme environments, is how Samsung describes its latest Galaxy Tab Active3. The tablet is, among other things, dust and water resistant, and according to the manufacturer, it also effortlessly survives a fall from heights of up to one and a half meters.

The design of the rugged tablet is based on that of the Tab Active2, with an emphasis on improving employee productivity and safety. For example, the touch-sensitive screen can also be used with gloves on, which can be useful for first responders, for example.

remote training

The Tab Active3 has a 13 megapixel main camera, while the 5 MP front camera is perfect for video or conference calls, according to Samsung. The device also supports Google ARCore which enables various augmented reality applications, such as remote training.

Of the other specifications, we especially remember the Exynos 9810 processor, the working memory of 4GB and storage capacity of 128GB, and WiFi6 with MIMO for fast wireless connections. The battery of the tablet, good for 5,050mAh, is interchangeable, so you can continue working even when there is no socket nearby.

Nearly full-fledged PC

It is worth noting that the Tab Active3 is compatible with Samsung DeX, a feature to upgrade certain mobile devices to a nearly full-fledged PC, by connecting a larger screen, mouse and keyboard. Incidentally, not only is the tablet itself dust and water resistant, the so-called S Pen is also IP68 certified.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active3 is only available in an Entreprise Edition and gets a target price of 490 euros.

USA-based Company Space Adventure and Russia plan to send the Japanese billionaire and online retail tycoon Yusaku Maezawa into the International Space Station or ISS. Both the countries are waiting for the arrival of December to make this non-professional launch. Space Adventure is the first company in the USA that provides space travel to people for a fee. The company will be using the Russian Soyuz Rocket for carrying out space travel right from its launch to its return. It will be recreational travel where customers are put into the ISS on the free return trajectory around the Moon on this Starship.

Insight into the Space Travel Adventure Tourism Story
Space tourism is an exciting form of tourism that has erupted during recent times and has boosted the tourism industry globally. The top-notch companies like SpaceX and Virgin Galactic are making waves globally by launching commercial space flights for customers paying the fee. The Russian Space Agency is stated to be the one that promoted orbital tourism in 2000, and tourists were taken into space.

Even Blue Origin Company on its spaceship, namely New Shepard, has sent the 90-year-old William Shatner into space. He is known for his role in the movie Star Trek as the famous Captain Kirk. Blue Origin Company is owned by Jeff Bezos. The 90-year-old actor became the third person to be launched into space, which is this older. These commercial space flights for recreational purposes are seen as the way to space tourism.

As we all have watched Star Trek movies, the nonagenarian actor stated that everyone in this world needs to do this and see the space for themselves. These sci-fi space movies have given the viewers a sneak peek into life in space, but maybe we can see the players playing games or gambling in space. It is shown in many space-based movies like Star Wars, The Hunger Games, Star Trek, etc., that the space beings are playing the table to poker games for fun and entertainment. If you also look for some fun, play table games online at a reputable casino. You can also try hands-on-the-lay dealer games, as you have seen in the movies.

Is Space Tourism Worth It?
From the point of view of earning money, Space Tourism is worth the hype and cost. The experience it provides to its tourists is at par excellence. Although it is for the ultra-rich, companies like SpaceX, Virgin Galactic, and Blue Origin are ready to provide their customers with a lunar and suborbital experience. The difference in reaching the space orbital will depend on the occasion, cost, and risk that it will involve for the non-commercial flights.

However, to promote space tourism, Space Adventure and Russia have stated that this is an exciting chapter that will be added to the world of tourism. Tom Shelley, the President of Space Adventure Company, said in Moscow, ?It is an inspiring time for us to start the consumer-based flights, and it is quite interesting too.?

Space Adventure is making the first launch of the Japanese customer to ISS after halting trips over trips because NASA booked the seats on the Russian-operated space flight. As no other vehicle could perform the space flight journey, the trip was halted for a while. However, SpaceX, owned by Elon Musk, has already made the ?all-civilian crew trip? around the Earth?s orbit, and Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin Company have also completed their suborbital missions.

Tribune. Following the tragedy of the death of Yasser, a young Sudanese, on September 28, and faced with the constant deterioration of the living conditions of people in exile in Calais, while the harassment to which they are subject is daily and the violence exercised by the State is always stronger, Philippe, Anaïs and Ludovic began a hunger strike since Monday, October 11 at the church of Saint-Pierre-de-Calais (Pas-de-Calais).

For several years, associations, activists and exiled people have been warning about the inhuman situation in Calaisis. We witness daily forms of psychological and physical violence against exiled persons: expulsions every 48 hours or even every day; confiscation and destruction of personal effects; increase in anti-distribution orders for food and water; humiliations; assault and battery by the police …

Human consciousnesses get used to everything, even the intolerable

And the escalation of violence does not stop. Two weeks ago, new measures were put in place. On four occasions, the State has laid rocks on a distribution site in Coquelles (Pas-de-Calais) preventing any access to associations to distribute basic foodstuffs to exiled people. Bans then multiplied in all places where people lived, making distributions illegal.

Since the 1990s, this no-reception policy has resulted in more than 300 deaths. On September 28, Yasser was run over by a truck. He wanted to join his dream, England with the hope of a better life.

Awaken the intelligences

Faced with this alarming observation, the State was arrested but no satisfactory response was given. No dialogue being possible, three Calais residents decided to start a hunger strike which took effect on October 11 in Calais with the following expectations:

– the suspension of daily evictions and dismantling of camps during the winter break;

– during this same period, the end of the confiscation of tents and personal effects of exiled persons;

– the opening of a reasoned citizen dialogue between public authorities and associations not mandated by the State, relating to the opening and location of distribution points for all the goods necessary to maintain the health of exiled persons.

Human consciousnesses get used to everything, even the intolerable. This hunger strike aims to awaken the intelligences, and to make heard again the scandalous and truly unimaginable character, in a country like France in 2021, of the condition to which people exiled by the public authorities are voluntarily reduced.

Exploring the properties and behaviours of strongly interacting quantum particles is one of the frontiers of modern physics. Not only are there major open problems that await solutions, some of them since decades (think high-?temperature superconductivity). Equally important, there are various regimes of quantum many-?body physics that remain essentially inaccessible with current analytical and numerical tools. For these cases in particular, experimental platforms are sought after in which the interactions between particles can be both controlled and tuned, thus allowing the systematic exploration of wide parameter ranges. One such experimental platform are carefully engineered stacks of two-?dimensional (2D) materials. Over the past couple of years, these ?designer quantum materials? have enabled unique studies of correlated electronic states. However, the strength of the interaction between the quantum states is typically fixed once a stack is fabricated. Now the group of Professor Ataç Imamo?lu at the Institute for Quantum Electronics reports a way around this limitation. Writing in Science, they introduce a versatile method that enables tuning of the interaction strength in 2D heterostructures by applying electrical fields.

Strength in a twist

Two-?dimensional materials have been in the spotlight of solid-?state research ever since the first successful isolation and characterization of graphene ? single layers of carbon atoms ? in 2004. The field expanded at breath-?taking speed ever since, but received a notable boost three years ago, when it was shown that two graphene layers arranged at a small angle relative to one another can host a broad range of intriguing phenomena dominated by electronic interactions.

Such ?twisted bilayer? systems, also known as moiré structures, have been subsequently created with other 2D materials as well, most notably with transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs). Last year, the Imamo?lu group demonstrated that two single layers of the TMD material molybdenum diselenide (MoSe2), separated by a single-?layer barrier made of hexagonal boron nitride (hBN), yield moiré structures in which strongly correlated quantum states emerge. In addition to purely electronic states, these materials also exhibit hybrid light-matter states, which ultimately enables studying these heterostructure by optical spectroscopy ? something that is not possible with graphene.

But for all the fascinating many-?body physics that these MoSe2/hBN/MoSe2 structures provide access to, they share a drawback with many other solid-?state platforms: the key parameters are more or less fixed in fabrication. To change that, the team, led by postdocs Ido Schwartz and Yuya Shimazaki, now adopted a tool that is widely used in experiments on a platform famed for its tunability, ultracold atomic quantum gases.

Feshbach resonances go electric

Schwartz, Shimazaki and their colleagues demonstrated that they can induce in their system a so-?called Feshbach resonance. These allow, in essence, to tune the interaction strength between quantum entities by bringing them into resonance with a bound state. In the case explored by the ETH team, these bounds states are between an exciton (created using the optical transitions in their system) in one layer and a hole in the other layer. It turns out that when exciton and hole overlap spatially, then the latter can tunnel to the other layer and form an inter-?layer exciton-hole ?molecule?. Crucially, the relevant inter-?layer interaction strength of the exciton-hole interactions, can be readily changed using electric fields.

This electrical tunability of the binding energy of the ?Feshbach molecules? is in contrast to atomic systems, where Feshbach resonances are typically controlled with magnetic fields. Moreover, the experiments by Schwartz, Shimazaki et al. yield the first Feshbach resonances that take place in truly 2D systems, which is of interest in itself. More important, however, might be that the electrically tunable Feshbach resonances explored now in MoSe2/hBN/MoSe2 heterostructures should be a generic feature of bilayer systems with coherent tunnelling of electrons or holes. This means that the newly introduced ?tuning knob? might become a versatile tool for a broad range of solid-?state platforms based on 2D materials ? opening up in turn intriguing perspectives for the wider experimental exploration of quantum many-?body systems.

This is information on climate finance for which we can have two opposing readings. A negative, with the confirmation that the developed countries have not honored their promise to mobilize 100 billion dollars per year, from 2020, to help developing countries cope with climate change. Another positive, because they should achieve it in 2023 and that this goal will be exceeded in 2024 and 2025. Despite the three years delay, the sum of 100 billion could be reached on average between 2021 and 2025.

These projections come from a report published by the UK Presidency of COP26, Monday 25 October, six days before the launch of the UN climate conference in Glasgow (Scotland), which is proving crucial to accelerate the fight against climate change. “I hope this report will restore confidence and create momentum”, said Alok Sharma, UK President of COP26.

“Nothing to do with generosity”

The subject of climate finance is one of the crucial points on the agenda of the climate conference, and an explosive subject. In recent months, frustration has grown steadily among the countries of the South, faced with countries of the North who fail to keep a commitment made twelve years ago, in 2009.

This goal, partly included in the 2015 Paris Agreement, which extends it over the period 2020-2025, has become the basis of trust between States and one of the engines of climate action. It reflects questions of equity, while developing countries are at the forefront of global warming for which they are not historically responsible. “Climate finance from North to South has nothing to do with generosity, it is an integral and essential part of a global policy”, points out the German Secretary of State for the Environment, Jochen Flasbarth.

In 2019, states totaled just $ 79.6 billion, according to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), due to a drop in bilateral public funding and private funding. If the data for 2020 will not be known until 2022, “The goal was almost certainly missed”, conceded Alok Sharma. It will also not be reached in 2021 and 2022.

Alok Sharma had mandated, in July, Germany and Canada to work on a roadmap on the means to reach 100 billion. The two countries, assisted by the OECD, have identified new financial commitments from developed countries, as well as those from multilateral development banks. These last weeks, several nations have put their hands in their pockets, such as the United States, New Zealand, the European Union or Canada. The COP26 presidency is still awaiting announcements by the end of the year.
