His quest for balance and pragmatism sometimes seemed out of place in today’s fractured and tormented America. But isn’t it to his credit? At 83, Stephen Breyer, one of the nine judges of the Supreme Court, is about to formalize his retirement at the end of the current session at the end of June. The news made the ?one? of the media on Wednesday January 26, as this decision offers a precious opportunity for Joe Biden to preserve the liberal wing within the institution, dominated by the conservatives ? six against three.

Appointed by Bill Clinton in 1994, Stephen Breyer ?embodies the best qualities and highest ideals of American justice: knowledge, wisdom, fairness, humility, restraint?, listed Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer (New York), Majority Leader, who promised a quick confirmation process for the future White House nominee. The tiny margin available to the Democrats in the Senate (50-50, plus the decisive vote of the vice-president, Kamala Harris) heightens the risk of new tussles.

Since the beginning of the Biden presidency, friendly pressure was exerted on the judge, through the media. It consisted of encouraging Stephen Breyer to step down, due to his age, to give Joe Biden the opportunity to promote a younger liberal judge in his place, alongside Sonia Sotomayor, 67, and Elena Kagan, 61 year. The prospect of a Democratic rout in the midterm elections in November would close the door for the president.

However, one of the most important legacies of the Trump presidency is the appointment of three new conservative judges to the Supreme Court: Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett. The latter had replaced the icon of the liberal camp, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, causing a shift in the internal balance. The death of “RBG” in 2020, at the age of 87, had left a bitter taste on the left, some regretting that the magistrate had not left office under the Obama presidency.

Dashed hopes of consensus

Since his disappearance, Judge Breyer had become the eldest of the liberal wing. His hopes for consensus and constructive work with his conservative colleagues have fizzled, on subjects such as immigration, Covid-19 or abortion. A broad offensive in many states to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade, legalizing abortion, thus seems relayed by the six majority magistrates.

However, Judge Breyer rejects the idea of ??a politicization of the Supreme Court, of a legal reading decided according to partisan lines. Defender of collegiality and deliberation, the magistrate held a position that was both noble and somewhat isolated. In a speech delivered to Harvard Law School in April 2021, Stephen Breyer deployed his vast culture, citing Cicero and Tocqueville, Shakespeare and Camus. This fine French-speaking person had centered his intervention on a warning against the reforming desires of part of the democratic apparatus, which plans to increase the number of judges sitting on the Court. Stephen Breyer had reassembled the story to underline how much the notion of trust in institutions should be cherished. “ To express it in an abstract way, the power of the Court, like that of any tribunal, must rest on the will of the public to respect its decisions, even those with which it finds itself in disagreement and even if it considers that these decisions constitute a serious error., he said.

The sky is a uniform gray and the cold penetrating in this late January morning. And yet many of them gather around the Saint-Eustache church (1st arrondissement) where a blessing is organized this Thursday at 11 a.m. in honor of Gaspard Ulliel, who died at 37 in a collision with another skier. , January 19. Inside a thousand guests are expected while outside, around 200 people, according to AFP and 270 according to our own estimates, come to pay their last respects to the actor. Or just work, given the number of journalists present.

Everyone has their own commentary, sometimes fine and relevant, like that of this photographer wearing a beret when Catherine Deneuve arrived: ?Oh damn, she took a lot! Suddenly, a wave of excitement runs through the crowd. ?They will take out the coffin [du corbillard] announces a woman in a purple coat. A prediction which, unsurprisingly, will prove a little later.

“It’s not fair to leave so young”

Just behind the barrier, Sylviane takes care not to lose a crumb of the ceremony, even if not much happens once the coffin is in the church. ?I am still in shock and I wanted to be present for Gaspard Ulliel, explains moved this resident of Plessis-Robinson (Hauts-de-Seine). It’s not fair to leave so young, I have a son the same age and for the parents it must be terrible. For her, who has seen many of his films, this “sublime actor” was “in line with Alain Delon”. So when the security service begins to distribute mass booklets, she is in the front row. It is moreover she who will provide her copy to 20 Minutes. It must be said that Sylviane is not a novice. She attended the funeral of Jean-Pierre Mocky whom she “adored” and that of Johnny Hallyday, her “favorite singer”.

It is because she regretted not having gone to La Madeleine to pay a last tribute to Johnny, that Sophie, retired, made the trip. ?I came to make an act of presence,? she confides. And then he is the most beautiful French actor. He seemed very nice, very human. One regret: ?I would have liked him to tour more, we haven’t seen him enough in the cinema. And Sophie has a theory about choosing Saint-Eustache: ?it’s probably because it’s younger, trendier than La Madeleine. In fact, Gaspard Ulliel lived his childhood in the neighborhood and was baptized in Saint-Eustache, but in 20 Minutes, Sophie’s theory is validated.

Near the barriers, new distribution of mass booklets. Sylviane holds out her arms. The guy from the organization isn’t fooled: ?It’s the fourth time I’ve donated here! Further on, a young man in need of attention decides to read the famous libretto aloud. CNews reporters rush in as Vincent Lindon arrives late.

We even reject the family

Julia, who works and lives in the neighborhood, wanted to mark the occasion on her way. ?I was an extra on one of his films, The Princess of Montpensier, with period dress and everything else,? she says. Not in the “fana mania”, she just wants to remember a “memory of cinema”. Speaking of cinema, a man with an earring scrutinizes the scene attentively. ?I am the father of actor Johan Libéreau, he explains, not a little proud. He played with Gaspard Ulliel in A people and their king. Besides, they were to meet again soon. It was very hard for him. His son being inside the church, he tried to join him but he did not have the password to cross the security check. Suddenly, a young man walks along the church to the visibly late entrance. ” Oh shit ! But he’s my son! »

Around noon, the first guests begin to leave Saint-Eustache for a final public tribute to Gaspard Ulliel. The security service intimates to the public to “let the press work”. But a young woman with a ponytail does not let herself be fooled and retorts: ?We don’t have cameras but we are also here to pay tribute! The coffin makes its appearance on rue Rambuteau as respectful applause rises from the assembled crowd. Then head to the Père-Lachaise cemetery. It was sad, but it was beautiful.

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

POLITICS – The objective ?remains the same? but the form is changed. Valérie Pécresse, LR presidential candidate, still wants to increase private sector salaries if she comes to power next May. On this, she remains firm. But she has reviewed her method, after complaints from employers, reports the newspaper The echoes.

During the race for the nomination of the LR candidate, last fall, Valérie Pécresse announced that she intended to increase salaries by 10%, up to ?2.2 Smic?, making it one of her strong measures to improve the purchasing power of the French, a key issue in this campaign.

To achieve this, it relied mainly on companies: these had to take charge of employees’ old-age contributions to mechanically increase the net pay of employees. Cost of the measure for companies? About 8 billion euros.

Unsurprisingly, the plan did not please those concerned at all. ?It was tantamount to increasing the cost of labor, we sent the message to his team that this posed a real problem?, explains an employer source to the economic daily. And the candidate on the right has corrected her copy.

Companies encouraged, but not obliged

Valérie Pécresse always proposes to lower social security contributions, but now only at the expense of the State. A first gesture will be made in the summer with a reduction in social security contributions of 2.4% for all employees. The companies will then be responsible for ?maintaining the momentum? generated, explains Frédéric Lemoine, in charge of the candidate’s program.

To help them, a ?Joint Wage Observatory? will be created and responsible for monitoring the annual increase in wages, with ?A first objective of +5% over two years in 2023?, specify The echoes.

This change of foot has somewhat creaked internally, reports the newsletter of Politico. And he made the elected macronists happy, delighted to underline what they present as an inconsistency of the rival LR. ?Already a buried promise. How serious!?, mocked LREM deputy and budget rapporteur Laurent Saint-Martin, praising the ?consistency? of Macron?s five-year measures.

In Valérie Pécresse’s campaign team, we procrastinate by recalling the “two other strong measures for the purchasing power of employees”, reports Politico quoting a thematic manager of the campaign. Namely ?overtime? and the redemption of RTT. This last proposal is not new on the right: Valérie Pécresse borrowed it from Nicolas Sarkozy, decidedly one of his inspirations.

Through Regis CREPET, meteorologist

Like every Thursday, our four-week trend is updated. It covers the school holidays in zone B and the beginning of zone A. As the holidays approach, you may be interested in the snow forecasts in the mountains, after a month of January with little precipitation.

The anticyclonic conditions, firmly established in France since January 10, will gradually give way to the return of disturbances in a wetter west to northwest flow. This will put a gradual end to a long period of calm and dry weather even if these disturbances will be relatively weak at first. If the first ten days of February promise to be temporarily disrupted, the rest of the month could once again be calmer and drier in our country.

Week of January 31 to February 6: return of more disturbed weather

The first week of February will be marked by the retreat of the anticyclone over the Atlantic. It will allow disturbances to pass, generally not very active over France, except that of Monday January 31, which promises to be quite active, accompanied by a brief cooling. This degradation will allow the return of snow on our mountains at low altitude, in particular on the reliefs of the east of France. Mistral and tramontane will blow strong. After this disturbance, the weather will possibly remain cloudy and humid over the northern half while it will improve in the south. Temperatures rise a little above seasonal averages.

Week of February 7 to 13: disrupted weather, but limited reliability

The majority scenario reports a west to northwest Atlantic flow, carrying rainy periods over most of the country except for a small southeast quarter for this first week of vacation. If you go on vacation in the mountains, snow could fall at medium altitudes a few times. Temperatures, initially close to normal for the season, will drop again with the direction of the wind to the north. Indeed, as disturbances pass, the winds change direction. Turning to the north, it would bring a blow of snow at medium, even low altitude, within this period, the chronology of which will have to be refined.

Week of February 14 to 20: probable return of the high pressure

After the possibly disrupted sequence with moderate rainy periods with snow in the mountains, the high pressures should reform near France. This swelling could also be faster than expected, as indicated above. We would then find a calm, quite cold and rather beautiful weather on the hexagon, with however the same consequences as in January: many low clouds and fogs in the plains, sun in the mountains, temperatures again falling with the return of the frosts thanks to clear nights. This development will require confirmation, but seems consistent with our seasonal trends, which envisage a month of February often marked by high pressures on our country, a bit like the month of January.

Week of February 21 to 27: towards a general thaw?

The last week of February could be characterized by the return of a south-westerly flow, initiating a global thaw. In this configuration, the weather would be quite disturbed on the northern half while in the south, it could be quite nice. At this distant date, this first trend will require confirmation.

In conclusion, it should be noted that the month of February presents uncertainties, even if the trend, drawn up on Thursday 27, shows little deviation from that of the previous week. The uncertainties remain the same and concern the activity of disturbances in our country. All in all, the month of February should present more or less the same characteristics as the month of January, with a risk of recording rainfall below the seasonal averages while the temperatures would be in line with the standards. This will raise the question of a possible early spring drought which could worsen in March.

Next update, Thursday, February 3 at 5 p.m.

It’s time for diplomacy. French, German, Russian and Ukrainian advisers met in Paris on Wednesday January 26 to find a way out of the crisis between Moscow and Kiev. Meanwhile, on the ground, soldiers are mobilized.

The Kremlin is accused of sending tens of thousands of troops to the Ukrainian border and Washington expects Russia to be able to do so “use of military force” against Ukraine in one way or another, “may be” by mid-February, according to US Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman. For its part, NATO has strengthened its presence in the region since Russia annexed Crimea. This is, moreover, one of the sensitive points of Moscow, which is calling for the freezing of enlargementOrganization of the North Atlantic Treaty in Europe, with in the first place the rejection of Ukraine’s membership.

Franceinfo helps you locate, on this map, the positions of the various stakeholders in the field.

Russian troops on the border and in Belarus

While eastern Ukraine has been experiencing a latent conflict since 2014, on the other side of the border, the Russian army is strengthening its positions. This unprecedented deployment of force has been documented for several months, in particular thanks to the analysis of dozens of amateur or satellite images. Artillery, armored vehicles, tanks, tank trucks? Dozens of rail convoys are observed. Equipment that reinforces existing or newly established Russian bases, as shown on our map.

Last December, American intelligence services estimated that 100,000 Russian soldiers had gathered near the border and in Crimea. According to a monitoring carried out by Rochan Consulting, a company of analysis in the military field, there are 17 permanent Russian military bases near the Ukrainian and Belarusian borders, and seven camps where new units have settled.

Since the beginning of January, similar movements have also been observed in Belarus, an ally of Moscow. On January 18, the Belarusian Ministry of Defense announced that Russian troops would arrive in February for training exercises. “combat readiness”. “The upcoming operational readiness and combat exercises are taking place due to the worsening of the politico-military situation in the world, the continuous increase of tensions in Europe, in particular on the western and southern borders of Belarus”, explained Minsk.

Nonetheless, thehe head of Ukrainian diplomacy, Dmytro Kouleba, estimated on Wednesday that the Russian troops gathered at the Ukrainian border were still “insufficient” to launch a major attack on his country. This number “is important, it poses a threat to Ukraine”, most “as we speak, this number is insufficient for a full-scale offensive against Ukraine along the entire Ukrainian border”, did he declare.

NATO soldiers around Ukraine

L’Otan, political and military alliance, today has 30 member states, including several countries bordering Ukraine: Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania. Cooperation between the Alliance and Kyiv, one of its partners, “intensified” in 2014, “consequence of the crisis which broke out between Russia and Ukraine”, notes the organization. For NATO, “un sovereign, independent and stable Ukraine, firmly committed to democracy and the rule of law, is essential to Euro-Atlantic security”.

These last years, “in response to Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014”, l’Otan “has strengthened its presence in the eastern part of Alliance territory, in particular by deploying four multinational battle groups there”, in the Baltic countries as well as in Poland. These groups include “multinational forces foperating on the principle of rotation and ready for combat“, specifies the organization, which recalls the absence of Alliance forces in the member states of Eastern Europe before 2014.

As shown in this interactive NATO map, these groups are located in Rukla (Lithuania), Adazi (Latvia), Tapa (Estonia) and Orzysz (Poland). The Baltic countries also have NATO force integration units, whose mission is “to contribute to the training of national troops and to facilitate the rapid deployment of allied forces if necessary”. These are located in Vilnius (Lithuania), Riga (Latvia) and Tallinn (Estonia).

NATO has also developed its presence in south-eastern Europe, with “a multinational brigade” in Craiova, Romania. In this country sharing part of its border with Ukraine, NATO is also present through the air base of Deveselu (Romania), which includes an anti-missile defense system. It also has a NATO force integration unit in Bucharest. Another unit of this type is located in Székesfehérvár, in Hungary, also neighboring Ukraine. NATO has also reinforced its maritime and air presence in the Black Sea region.

Reinforcements sent to southeastern Europe

The Atlantic Alliance announced on Monday that several of its member states would send military reinforcements to Eastern Europe. This is, explains NATO, “to strengthen NATO’s deterrence and defense posture, while Russia continues to strengthen its military posture in and around Ukraine”.

Denmark has thus planned to send a frigate to the Baltic Sea, as well as four F-16 fighters to Lithuanian territory, “in support of the sky police mission” of the Alliance. Madrid must in turn send several ships “who will join the NATO naval forces” and could launch the dispatch of fighters to Bulgaria. The Netherlands will also send two F-35 fighters there from April, while offering “a ship and land units in a state of readiness”, for the Atlantic Alliance reaction force.

The United States for its part placed on alert Monday some 8,500 soldiers, who could swell the ranks of the NATO reaction force which has 40,000 soldiers. The decision to deploy them has not yet been taken, but a delivery of military equipment and ammunition has already been sent to Kiev by plane. France, for its part, said to itself “ready to send troops to Romania“under NATO command.

Zapping But! Football Club Olympique Lyonnais: The question of the week

Although OL have categorically denied the fact that they would have accepted an offer of ?40m from Newcastle for Bruno Guimaraes, this does not prevent the two clubs from continuing to negotiate. According to L’Equipe, Lyon would not be firmly opposed to a sale but is discussing additional bonuses on the file.

An XXL contract offered to Guimaraes

As for the player, who left for Brazil in January, he gave his approval to his agents to negotiate with the Magpies. If Bruno Guimaraes, who is happy in Lyon, will not force his departure, the midfielder still has in mind to play in the Premier League in his career. Newcastle would offer him the possibility of quadrupling his current salary (?220,000 gross per month) but Bruno Guimaraes is also not against the idea of ??waiting a few more months, eager to finish the season well in France and in Europe with OL before imagining joining a club in a better situation than the Magpies (18th in the Premier League). Aware of the interests of Arsenal and Juventus of Turin, Bruno Guimaraes believes that an offer of this ilk can return to the table in June.

A Brazil-Newcastle flight booked for next week?

On the British side, we nevertheless remain confident on the issue. The Daily Express assures in particular that, despite the recent refusals from Lyon, Newcastle and the Brazilian’s agents have already booked a flight to the North of England for next week…

Russia takes note of the American position. Thursday, January 27, the head of Russian diplomacy, Sergei Lavrov, regretted that Washington had not given “positive response” to the ” principal ” request from Moscow ? that of putting an end to the enlargement of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), in particular to Ukraine ?, denouncing “the unbridled expansion of the Alliance [Atlantique] ».

?We cannot accept such a position?, he said, adding that Moscow was ?studying the response received from the Americans? and that of NATO. ” There is [cependant] a reaction that gives hope for the start of a serious conversation on secondary issues?, Lavrov added in a statement.

Also listen Should we fear a Russian invasion in Ukraine?

Russian soldiers at the border

On Wednesday, the American ambassador delivered a letter to the Russian Foreign Ministry explaining that the United States was ?determined to maintain and defend the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and the right of states to choose their own security arrangements and alliances?, the head of American diplomacy, Antony Blinken, had reported that day to journalists. The letter also reaffirmed ” that [les Etats-Unis] defend[ent] the principle of the open door to NATO?, while offering ?a serious diplomatic path if Russia wishes it?.

These exchanges are carried out against a backdrop of extreme tensions on the Russian-Ukrainian border; Washington has said it expects a possible imminent attack by Russian forces, as Moscow has moved tens of thousands of troops near the Ukrainian borders. Russia denies any plan of invasion, but it considers itself threatened by the expansion of NATO for twenty years as well as by Western political and military support for its Ukrainian neighbor.

Towards European sanctions

Moscow has warned that the rejection of its demands would result in reprisals, sweeping away the threats of unprecedented sanctions that the West says it wants to impose in the event of an offensive in Ukraine. Among these measures could be measures against the controversial German-Russian gas pipeline Nord Stream II, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock told the Chamber of Deputies on Thursday.

Russia can however be satisfied with the explicit support of China. On Thursday, the Chinese Foreign Minister, Wang Yi, thus defended the ?reasonable concerns? of Russia for his safety, during a telephone exchange with his American counterpart, Antony Blinken.

France continues to play the diplomatic card. Wednesday evening, a meeting in Paris brought together Russian, Ukrainian negotiators and Franco-German mediators. The latter resumed an appointment for February, promising to work to guarantee a truce in the East. Paris greeted “a good signal” from “reengagement” from the Russians despite the ” Difficult conditions “, before a meeting on Friday between the President of the French Republic, Emmanuel Macron, and his counterpart from the Russian Federation, Vladimir Poutine.

At the same time, however, the Kremlin party United Russia on Wednesday called on Russian authorities to arm separatists in Ukraine. The main representative of the latter called for modern weapons, in particular to deal with Ukrainian drones, acquired from Turkey and reputed to be extremely effective.

It is therefore Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United or West Ham.

In agreement with the young 24-year-old talent, OL made the decision to postpone this XXL approach. A decision based on the sporting aspect, with the essential role played by Paqueta within the team of Lyon coach Peter Bosz. In addition, in the future, Lyon will have no trouble finding such an important offer for the native of Rio de Janeiro, who has a huge popularity rating in Europe.

find a balance

Despite a delicate financial situation, Rhone President Jean-Michel Aulas therefore had the ability to resist on this issue. Enough to mitigate the disappointment of OL fans over the expected sale of Guimaraes? With a balance to be found between the sporting and economic aspect, Lyon obviously judged that the former element of Athletico Paranaense was expendable at such a price. Unlike Paqueta?

What do you think of the situation of Olympique Lyonnais? The refusal to sell Lucas Paqueta this winter? Do not hesitate to react and discuss in the area add a comment ?

A fourth dose “would not bring any significant individual benefit”, writes the COSV, it could also be “interpreted as a signal of ineffectiveness of vaccination”.

In a January 19 opinion, published on Wednesday, the French government’s Council for the Orientation of Vaccine Strategy (COSV) writes that it considers “that the available data do not currently call for the implementation of a second vaccine booster”, otherwise called 4th dose, and this “although the question is made legitimate by the current context of strong viral circulation”.

“With the exception of severely immunocompromised people, for whom the COSV has already recommended the systematic injection of a second booster dose, a second booster dose would not bring any significant individual benefit. ?, it is specified.

Why is the 4th dose not recommended?

In the opinion, the COSV recalls the effectiveness of the third dose against serious forms, even if it is less effective with regard to contagiousness. “For the moment, no consistent piece of information suggests that the protection against the occurrence of serious forms conferred by a vaccine booster decreases over time”, writes the council, which recalls that people vaccinated with a booster (3rd dose ) “represent only a small contingent of people being hospitalized or in intensive care”.

At the same time, he notes that the first studies on the effectiveness of a fourth dose, if they demonstrate an increase in antibodies against Covid-19 and protection against severe forms, seem to indicate that it does not protect extremely well against neither do infections.

On the other hand, “in the current context of very high circulation of the Omicron variant, the population could have developed sufficient protection to fight against future variants, which would attenuate the need for a second vaccine booster dose in the general population. “

Finally, the COSV explains that it fears that the introduction of a fourth dose today will generate “a counter-productive effect on the continuation of the current vaccination campaign”, because it could be “interpreted as a signal of ineffectiveness of vaccination by public opinion and thus induce a risk of disengagement with regard to vaccination perceived as too frequent.

Focus on the third dose first

This opinion on the fourth dose could however evolve in the future, specifies the COSV. A fourth dose could thus be recommended for people over the age of 80, “if the slight increase in the number of hospitalizations, which began in December, were to continue over the next few weeks”. Currently, “this signal does not seem sufficient to issue such a recommendation”.

Overall, the council expects more data concerning this fourth dose, for example on the level of protection conferred and according to age groups.

Finally, the COSV calls for, before setting up a new dose, to accelerate the current campaigns concerning reminders or the first doses, because “on the epidemiological level, the good conduct of the primary vaccination and vaccination booster campaigns would bring effects superior to the establishment of a second booster dose”.
