Lens suffered at the end of the match, but Lens held firm against Monaco (2-0) this Saturday Louis-II, within the framework of the 3rd day of Ligue 1. New underperformance for the Mongasques, however in numerical superiority during almost half an hour of play …

Ganago opened the scoring early in the second half.

Monaco begins to worry. Authors of a more than delicate start to the season in Ligue 1, the players of the princely club had a new underperformance against Lens (0-2) this Saturday, as part of the 3rd day of Ligue 1, despite their numerical superiority for almost half an hour of play in the second period.

No doubt tired, just four days after their defeat against Shakhtar Donetsk (0-1) in the first leg of the Champions League, the Mongasques will quickly have to raise their heads.

Pavlovic at the bottom of the hole …

With only one small point taken in the first two league games, Niko Kovac’s men sought to make the difference between them, but they came up against the impermeable northern bloc. Ben Yedder could have shaken Leca after ten minutes of play, but Medina followed well to relieve his camp. Then the Sang et Or took the game their account, and they missed the opening of the score by a few centimeters!

On a bad pass behind Pavlovic, Nbel saw his relief – controlled by Sotoca – land on the head of Ganago at twenty meters, whose instant recovery brushed the post! A first warning followed by a second. But the referee this time saved Pavlovic by whistling a little obvious fault from Sotoca, following a new recovery missed by the Serbian international, decidedly not in a big day. And he proved it once again when he got back from the locker room …

Doucour sees red, Lens is holding on!

Five minutes after the restart, Ganago effectively took advantage of a huge error of appreciation by the Mongolian defender to present himself against Nbel, and his shot from a tight angle visibly surprised the goalkeeper loaned by Bayern, author of a big foul of hand (0-1, 51st)! Enough to ignite Louis-II, where many Lensois supporters made the trip. But the party was short-lived, since Doucour saw red ten minutes later after a tough tackle on Diatta’s ankle!

Monaco has logically regained control of leather, and launched the assault on the northern surface. And despite the incessant waves of opponents, Leca and his defense held their ground, while the red card received by Golovin five minutes from the end of the day definitively put an end to the hopes of the locals. And at the end of the end, Banza even offered himself the luxury of doubling the bet by finding himself the conclusion of a perfect counter-attack (0-2, 90th)! First victory for the Sang et Or this season, while the ASM is still waiting …

The score of the match: 6.5 / 10

If the first period is due, the second has kept all its promises. With more action, suspense and twists, whether through the goal of Ganago or the red cards received by Doucour and Golovin. Add that an atmosphere for once livened up Louis-II thanks to the northern supporters… and you get a more than honorable rating.

The goals :

– Clauss launches Ganago right. Pavlovic is ahead, but the central defender takes no interest in the ball and leaves it to the attacker, whose strike at a closed angle visibly surprised Nbel, author of a big hand fault (0-1, 51st)!

– At the end of the match, Frankowski steals the ball from Caio Henrique and is alone in the box. At the last moment, he ended up deflecting Banza, who finished point blank (0-2, 90th)!

Player NOTES

Maxifoot has awarded a score (out of 10) comments on each player.

Man of the match: Kevin Danso (7/10)

A first pass back was missed, which also put Leca in danger, then a faultless behind. Present on all trajectories, Danso has disgusted the Mongascian attackers and especially poor Ben Yedder, far too lonely at the forefront. The central defender from Lens, could not be more reassuring for his teammates, also saved his team just before the break thanks to a superb return to Diop’s feet. And when his team suffered the endless waves of adversity following Doucour’s red card, Danso responded now!

MONACO :

Alexander Nbel (3): decidedly, the goalkeeper loaned by Bayern is struggling at the start of the season. Known for his kicking game, Nbel once again put his team in danger following a relief controlled by Sotoca. He was certainly not helped by Pavlovic’s poorly adjusted back pass, but he was also guilty of a huge hand fault on the opening goal signed by Ganago.

Ruben Aguilar (5): already physically exhausted during his half-time interview, Aguilar held on and stepped up his efforts in the second half. Defensively, he held his right side rather well. Replace the 84th minute with Djibril Sidib (non not).

Strahinja Pavlovic (1): a disaster. Pavlovic set the tone from the start of the match with a poorly adjusted back pass for Nbel, which led to the first straightforward situation in the game for Lensois. Subsequently, he brushed himself up against Sotoca again, and he was very happy to see the referee whistle a fault, however not very obvious, from the striker, while Fofana spun on goal. And on the opening of the score of Ganago, he strangely left the ball to the first scorer of the day to allow him to present himself against Nbel … a priori, he should quickly find the sidelines.

Axel Disasi (5): a frustrating meeting for the Mongolian defender, who held the house rather well despite the errors of his colleague in central defense.

Caio Henrique (4): the Mongascian left lateral had a lot of trouble today. Whether offensively, with many missed crosses, but also defensively, the image of this ball lost at the end of the match before the goal of the break signed Banza.

Sofiane Diop (4): this time, Diop missed out on his match. Attractive since the start of the season, the attacking midfielder has not found the solution to the imposing Fofana. The Mongasque is going to have to strengthen himself physically if he hopes to be able to look such opponents in the eye. And he will also have to work on the finish, he who could have concluded just before the break despite a good return from Danso. Replace the 76th minute with Cesc Fabregas (non not).

Aurlien Tchouamni (4): also foamed by the sequence of matches, Tchouamni did not have his usual influence in midfield. Replace the 63rd minute with Gelson Martins (non not), who did his best to bring the danger into the opponent’s box.

Jean Lucas (5): author of a fairly discreet first period, Jean Lucas woke up before the break with a love of the ball for Diop, well taken in the area by Danso. In the second half, he tried to bring the danger into the opponent’s box by all means, but his passes found the Lensois defenders, and his strikes the gloves of Leca.

Krepin Diatta (4): a few differences on the left side, but too much vagueness in the last gesture or the last pass. Diatta, however, stood out in the second half by eliciting Doucour’s red card, but he was replaced in the crowd in the 64th minute by Myron Boadu (non not).

Aleksandr Golovin (3): a day without for the Russian, who has rarely managed to find Ben Yedder. Golovin had the opportunity to match his attackers, but he was sorely lacking in precision in the last pass.

Wissam Ben Yedder (3): a ghost, or almost. Ben Yedder tried to exist through deviations and discounts, but he was never found in the right tempo by his teammates. A match forget for him. Replace the 63rd minute with Kevin Volland (non not), which encountered the same problems as WBY.

Zapping But! Football Club RC Lens: the top 10 most used players by Franck Haise

A result that validates the start of the season … and gives back defensive certainties

Given the difficulty of his schedule (trip to Rennes and Monaco, reception of ASSE), seeing RC Lens undefeated and at 5 pts after three days is a great answer to those who expected a delicate season for the Bloods. and Gold. Compared to the previous season, Franck Haise’s team has not changed its style much, still strong in its pressing work and well organized. In Monaco, Jean-Louis Leca was little worried – even at 10 against 11 for 25 minutes (until the exclusion of Golovin) – not leaving his first real parade until the 73rd minute on a long shot from Caio Henrique. Proof that after his mistakes against Saint-Etienne, Lens has gained in consistency and solidity.

Ganago took advantage of Nübel’s gifts

On this ASM – RCL, Ignatius Ganago can really say thank you to Monegasque goalkeeper Alexander Nübel. If he did not know how to take advantage of a missed clearance from the goalkeeper loaned by Bayern Munich to open the scoring with a header (17th), he however made up for it by taking the best of the young Pavlovic before take advantage of a hand fault by Nübel to score his second goal of the season (51st).

Danso and Frankowski already decisive

For his first tenure in the axis instead of Christopher Wooh, Kévin Danso was very solid to Louis II. A valuable return to be credited to Sofiane Diop (45th + 1) when the score was 0-0. Already well integrated into Racing’s three-way defense. Concerning the other “rookie” of the month of August Przemyslaw Frankowski, returned to the break in place of Deiver Machado, we especially saw him defend against the twirling Gelson Martins. He did the job before taking advantage of a Pavlovic error to afford his first assist in Ligue 1.

Banza decisive entry

Having come into play in place of the combative Florian Sotoca, the young Lensois striker brought his stone to the building to build the Artesian success. It was first he who caused the exclusion of Golovin on a counter (84th) before being present to kill the match in the money-time (90th + 4).

Doucouré inside … And suspended against Lorient

At the heart of the good artesian match for Louis II, he was undoubtedly one of the least in sight. In the 61st minute, the Malian was logically excluded by Mr. Pignard for a late tackle on the ankle of Krépin Diatta. A real fault that provoked the ire of the Lensois but also the exit on injury of the Monegasque and a tactical reorganization (exit of Ganago, entry of Cahuzac).

The 5 points to remember from Monaco – Lens (0-2)

Strong defensively, opportunistic by Ganago and Banza, RC Lens brought back a nice success from his trip to Monaco (2-0) this Saturday. A match that ended ten against ten after the exclusions of Cheick Doucouré and Aleksandr Golovin.

An Uber driver protests to reject

Contractual or employees? The status of drivers of apps like Uber hangs in the balance again in California, where a judge ruled on Friday August 20 as unconstitutional and « inapplicable » a November 2020 referendum confirming their “independence”, according to American media.

The American leaders in the reservation of cars with drivers, Uber and Lyft, had submitted to a vote a law making these drivers independent, while this American state had adopted, in 2019, a text which required these companies to treat their drivers. like employees.

The two companies and other allied platforms won the game: Golden State voters voted 58.6% in favor of “Proposition 22,” which dedicated paid work to the task while giving drivers some social benefits.

This proposal is unconstitutional, because it “Limits the power of a future California legislature to define mobile application drivers as workers recognized by the workers’ compensation law”, said Judge Frank Roesh, of the Alameda court, according to the newspaper Sacramento Bee. The result of the referendum is therefore « inapplicable », he said.

Uber will appeal

“We are going to appeal and we think we are going to win”, reacted a spokesperson for Uber. “This decision ignores the will of the majority of Californian voters and makes no sense either in terms of logic or under the law, he detailed. The California attorney strongly defended the constitutionality of Proposition 22. “

For Erica Mighetto, a driver who campaigned for employee status, this decision is a “Triumph for the future of work through apps”. “I am so happy that the courts see Proposition 22 as an attempt to destroy labor rights. I believe that now drivers have a real chance to fight for sufficient income to live and for a fair working environment ”, she told Agence France-Presse.

With its competitor Lyft and delivery services, Uber had spent more than 200 million dollars (170 million euros) to promote yes to Proposition 22 in November 2020.

Re-qualifying drivers as employees would mean granting them certain rights and benefits, such as unemployment benefits or possible collective bargaining.

A decision that divides

A year ago, three months before the vote, the two Californian companies threatened to completely cut off their service in the state, which would have put tens of thousands of people out of work.

In February, the California Supreme Court refused to accept the complaint of Uber drivers who wanted to force the state to reject the law approved by referendum. They hoped to argue that “Proposition 22” violated the California Constitution by limiting the ability of its elected officials to facilitate the organization of workers among themselves and by excluding drivers from the benefits to which they should be entitled as employees. .

“It’s disturbing that it took so much effort to legally recognize the obvious”, indignant Friday Mae Cee, who drives part-time for Uber and activates within the RDU (Rideshare Drivers United), an association of drivers.

But the drivers are divided between those who want to be employees and those who prefer to keep the current flexibility. Jim Pyatt, who serves in northern California, says the judge’s decision is a ” shame “. “They want to take away the ability of drivers to work independently and eliminate the new historic benefits offered by ‘proposition 22’, including guaranteed income, health insurance and more”, he argued, quoted in a statement by the organization which campaigned for the yes.

An Uber driver protests to reject

Contractual or employees? The status of drivers of apps like Uber hangs in the balance again in California, where a judge ruled on Friday August 20 as unconstitutional and « inapplicable » a November 2020 referendum confirming their “independence”, according to American media.

The American leaders in the reservation of cars with drivers, Uber and Lyft, had submitted to a vote a law making these drivers independent, while this American state had adopted, in 2019, a text which required these companies to treat their drivers. like employees.

The two companies and other allied platforms won the game: Golden State voters voted 58.6% in favor of “Proposition 22,” which dedicated paid work to the task while giving drivers some social benefits.

This proposal is unconstitutional, because it “Limits the power of a future California legislature to define mobile application drivers as workers recognized by the workers’ compensation law”, said Judge Frank Roesh, of the Alameda court, according to the newspaper Sacramento Bee. The result of the referendum is therefore « inapplicable », he said.

Uber will appeal

“We are going to appeal and we think we are going to win”, reacted a spokesperson for Uber. “This decision ignores the will of the majority of Californian voters and makes no sense either in terms of logic or under the law, he detailed. The California attorney strongly defended the constitutionality of Proposition 22. “

For Erica Mighetto, a driver who campaigned for employee status, this decision is a “Triumph for the future of work through apps”. “I am so happy that the courts see Proposition 22 as an attempt to destroy labor rights. I believe that now drivers have a real chance to fight for sufficient income to live and for a fair working environment ”, she told Agence France-Presse.

With its competitor Lyft and delivery services, Uber had spent more than 200 million dollars (170 million euros) to promote yes to Proposition 22 in November 2020.

Re-qualifying drivers as employees would mean granting them certain rights and benefits, such as unemployment benefits or possible collective bargaining.

A decision that divides

A year ago, three months before the vote, the two Californian companies threatened to completely cut off their service in the state, which would have put tens of thousands of people out of work.

In February, the California Supreme Court refused to accept the complaint of Uber drivers who wanted to force the state to reject the law approved by referendum. They hoped to argue that “Proposition 22” violated the California Constitution by limiting the ability of its elected officials to facilitate the organization of workers among themselves and by excluding drivers from the benefits to which they should be entitled as employees. .

“It’s disturbing that it took so much effort to legally recognize the obvious”, indignant Friday Mae Cee, who drives part-time for Uber and activates within the RDU (Rideshare Drivers United), an association of drivers.

But the drivers are divided between those who want to be employees and those who prefer to keep the current flexibility. Jim Pyatt, who serves in northern California, says the judge’s decision is a ” shame “. “They want to take away the ability of drivers to work independently and eliminate the new historic benefits offered by ‘proposition 22’, including guaranteed income, health insurance and more”, he argued, quoted in a statement by the organization which campaigned for the yes.

The traffic is once again very dense on Saturday August 21 on the roads, mainly in the direction of returning from vacation with a peak of 838 km of cumulative traffic jams recorded at midday by Bison Futé. The day is classified black in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and on the Mediterranean arc. By early afternoon, around 1:40 p.m., the total slowdown had contracted to 514 km.

The disturbances mainly affected the A7 motorway in the South-North direction, reports Bison Futé. On the latter, the difficulties were particularly concentrated in the Drôme with a maximum of 131.7 km of cumulative slowdowns.

This has resulted in an extension of at least an hour in travel time between Orange (Vaucluse) and Lyon (Rhône) in both directions, said Vinci Autoroutes, manager of the A7. At the same time, there were other difficulties on the Mediterranean rim between Narbonne (Aude) and Orange (Vaucluse) by the A9 with a 2h10 journey in both directions instead of 1h40.

On the A61, we counted about thirty additional minutes to reach Toulouse from the Aude, still according to Vinci Autoroutes. On the other hand, no major difficulty on the A8 which links Aix-en-Provence to Nice.

On the Atlantic side, from the Spanish border, it took at least two more hours on the A63 to get back to Bordeaux (Gironde), then a little over an hour to reach Poitiers (Vienne) by the A10 from the Gironde capital.

The weekend of August 15 had already seen a strong influx on the roads with nearly 1,000 kilometers of traffic jams in the direction of return. Sunday, the traffic is classified orange in the direction of the returns throughout France, with additional traffic difficulties in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and in the south-east, classified red.

The northeastern United States, including New York, is preparing to face Henri, a tropical storm promoted to hurricane rank on Saturday, August 21. Hurricane “Will make landfall on Long Island or in southern New England on Sunday”, had announced on Friday, in his 5 p.m. bulletin, the National Hurricane Monitoring Center (NHC). The alert was, however, extended on Saturday by the same weather services, east to Nantucket, Massachusetts.

With winds now up to 120 km / h, Henri could cause serious material damage, especially to roofs of houses, roads, and cause blackouts of electricity and telecommunications throughout the affected area. 7 to 15 centimeters of precipitation is expected across the region, and up to 25 centimeters in places, warned the NHC, which also warned of the risk of flooding.

Part of the northeastern United States, including New York, was placed on alert Friday for the approach of Henry, which could become the first hurricane in thirty years to hit the New England coast. “The last hurricane to make landfall in New England dates back to Bob, in 1991”, said a spokesperson for the US agency for the study of the ocean and the atmosphere. This hurricane had killed at least 17 people across the East Coast.

Faced with the threat, several governors called on the population to be cautious. In Massachusetts, the state where the city of Boston is located, Governor Charlie Baker asked “Everyone to avoid unnecessary travel”, especially in coastal areas. In this state, where all beaches and parks will be closed between Saturday and Monday, the hurricane could cause power cuts affecting 100,000 to 300,000 residents, assured the services of the governor.

The fight is unequal. The sixty trawlers are no match for the “Aeolius”, a 140-meter-long mastodon responsible for drilling the seabed. By 2023, 62 wind turbines should produce, according to the operator, energy for 835,000 inhabitants. A project defended by successive governments since 2011, but which arouses the rebellion of fishermen and environmental associations. Because the environmental benefit is very uncertain and the first pollutions are very real.

Their faces blackened by the ink of the cuttlefish, the two sailors of the “Fury Breizh” have this morning the faces of underground miners. After twenty-four hours at sea, barely the boxes of fish unloaded on the hold of the port of Saint-Quay-Portrieux (Côtes-d’Armor), here they are mending their nets. Not a minute to lose. On the aft deck, these skillful embroiderers mend torn stitches, passing and ironing the heavy green thread using a wooden shuttle.

It’s their daily life, six days a week. In less than an hour, with Jonathan Thomas, known as “DJo”, at the helm of his “Fury Breizh”, Cézembre Martin, 22, and Mikaël Valet, 32, will take to sea again. The 33-year-old fisherman is leading the sling against the wind farm. Yet he is tired of fighting, tired of the heavy fines and the eight-month suspended sentence to which he was sentenced for degrading a portal on the RTE site in Erquy. The weather is calm, but in the minds of the fishermen it is still a storm. Ten years that they fight and multiply in vain the administrative appeals. And now, as soon as the work has started, damage follows one another on the hydraulic drills of the “Aeolus” platform ship, causing successive pollution: an iridescent layer of several kilometers has indeed been observed by the authorities. “In the midst of the Saint-Jacques reproduction period! »Accuses Alain Coudray, president of the departmental committee for fisheries and marine farming of Côtes-d’Armor. He is the voice of the professionals of the sea, who denounce the illegality of this project attributed to Ailes Marines, a subsidiary of the Spanish multinational Iberdrola, which did not wish to answer our questions.

This irregularity – which makes it possible to devastate a large classified natural site, an area of ​​exceptional biodiversity, the first French deposit of scallops – has been recognized by the State, which has given rise to the right to compensation for the company Nass & Wind. , arrival first of the call for tenders. Alain Coudray believes he knows the bottom line: “Sarko was against the project in Saint-Brieuc. Le Drian, then president of the region, allegedly harassed him so that Brittany would be the first to equip itself with offshore wind turbines. It was fashion, the site had a symbolic value. Nass & Wind, a Lorient company, may have represented a conflict of interest. Hence the choice of Spanish Iberdrola. “

“We don’t want their checks,” says Jonathan. With the dirty money of the Spanish mafia, they are destroying our bay. We want to work! “Alain Coudray agrees with him:” My interest is that my guys can continue their profession. »How many are they making a living from this activity? Some 600 sailors for 220 trawlers, to which must be added auction staff, fishmongers and fishmongers, at least 2,000 jobs for an exemplary fishery which has learned to regulate itself: forty-five minutes authorized by boat, two times a week, from October to April for Saint-Jacques. They do not weigh heavily in the face of financial stakes: 2.5 billion in profits forecast for Iberdrola in twenty years of operation.

Grégory Le Droumaguet, biologist “They plow everything, move huge rocks, transform the seabed into fields of potatoes”

Last Wednesday, they were surprised to receive unexpected support: the NGO Sea Shepherd, known to defend whales and often opposed to fishermen. She nevertheless came to the aid of the insurgents with her pirate flags with skulls, her seasoned divers. This new campaign is called “Winds of Wrath”. “We can speak of environmental ecocide,” says Lamya Essemlali, president of the French branch. “In April 2017, 59 authorizations for the destruction of protected species were granted illegally! We will file an appeal with the Council of State, we will go to the European authorities. And above all, do not talk about “wind farms” anymore, it is the promoters’ propaganda. There is nothing rustic about what is happening. These are factories, power plants in the middle of a biodiversity hotspot. “

Even the research firm commissioned by Iberdrola recognizes that the survival of the twisted penguin and the Common murres is no longer assured. “We are screwing up a century of coastal preservation,” continues Lamya Essemlali. It is a scandal that the big NGOs, like WWF or Greenpeace, support wind power or say nothing. Marine life is our best ally in the fight against climate change. The bay is not only home to the precious beds of scallops, clams, lobsters, noble fish, corals and sea fans, but the largest population of resident dolphins in Europe. It ranks in the top two nesting areas for metropolitan seabirds, such as the Atlantic puffin or the Balearic shearwater, threatened with extinction. So many species that now face the noise of the construction site, troubled waters, modified currents and, soon, a magnetic field generated by electric power, vibrations caused even under the water by the movement of the blades. So many barriers, even traps.

In Europe, the average installation of marine wind turbines is 41 kilometers from the coast. It is at 16 this time. The project is pharaonic. A concession the size of Paris, with 62 wind turbines as tall as the Montparnasse Tower (207 meters). Resting on a “Jacket foundation”, a tripod requiring the drilling of three pillars, each one is connected to the intermediate power station, in the open sea, by a hundred kilometers of cables buried in trenches. Two large cables with a power of 225,000 volts will finally transport the energy ashore, to the network. The “landing” began on the large sandy beach of Caroual, in Erquy. At the heart of the bay, a large navigation exclusion zone has been demarcated. “They transform the seabed into fields of potatoes,” laments Grégory Le Droumaguet, biologist in charge of studies at the fisheries committee. They have already moved 450 rocks over a meter high: it will take five to ten years to hope for a return of species. “

SAINT-BRIEUC OFFSHORE WIND FARM SITE

SC_Card_SB_OK

The Saint-Brieuc park is only a first step. Six other projects are underway on the French coast: Courseulles-sur-Mer, Fécamp, Saint-Nazaire, Dieppe-Le Tréport, Yeu-Noirmoutier and Dunkirk. And other calls for tenders have been launched: offshore energy (wind, tidal and wave energy) should, by 2028, represent 32% of the country’s renewable electricity. We could therefore eventually count 130 wind farms along our coasts, for impacts that no study has yet measured. Faced with the emergency, the National Council for the Protection of Nature (CNPN), attached to the Ministry of Ecological Transition, took the initiative. In his report of July 6, he calls for a moratorium and recommends favoring floating offshore. “In 2012, when it was signed, I was an unconditional pro-wind turbine,” assures Katherine Poujol, president of the local environmental association Gardez les caps. We thought it was virtuous; neither did we know Iberdrola and his methods. They took us for morons. “” At the beginning, we were not against the project, remembers Alain Coudray. Discussions with Ailes Marines-Iberdrola were not going too badly. »Then he denounces the technical lack of preparation of the site in the area. According to him, we did not want to consult the local actors who, for their part, know every stone.

Could the last hope lie in the geological nature of the subsoil, with its veins of dolerite, a particularly hard volcanic rock? “They announced three days to drill a position, that is to say three holes 3 meters in diameter per wind turbine, going up to 40 meters deep! deplores Alain Coudray. After three months, none have been finalized and all three drills are out of order. They smash the bay, but break their teeth there. “” It’s like trying to drill into concrete with a wood bit! »Adds one of his comrades. Even the tidal range (difference between high tide and low tide), the fifth largest in the world, does not seem to have been taken into account, nor the strength of the currents.

By 2028, 130 offshore wind farms could be created along the French coast

The question is now on everyone’s lips: will this park see the light of day? Since the opening of the site in May, the three successive pollutions by liquid leaks from the hydraulic drills have forced “suspensions” of work. In mid-July, a naval battle scene again opposed the fishermen of Erquy and Saint-Quay-Portrieux to the French Navy, sent to protect the “Aeolus”. “On the orders of the maritime prefect,“ Le Rhône ”came down on us, rebels Jonathan Thomas. We thought he was going to send us to the bottom. I had to put their survival gear on my men. We kept respect for the French Navy… it’s over! “Marc Le Fur, LR deputy for Côtes-d’Armor, also wonders:” I am elected, I balance costs / benefits for the taxpayer, and there I see no advantage. Between the 4.7 billion subsidy granted to the operator and the guaranteed purchase of electricity at three times the prices charged, what do we have to gain? I used the word “mafia” in the gallery of the National Assembly and I repeat it. We must consider an alternative, for example the energy produced by the swell, and stop conforming to dogma and look at reality. “

If again the energy produced by these windmills was as virtuous as announced… Supposed to reduce CO2 emissions, it pollutes, like any industrial activity, and emits a carbon footprint. Materials imported from Asia by cargo ship, assembly on French and Spanish sites, rare earths (1.3 tonnes per turbine), massive concreting, upkeep, maintenance – in particular the cleaning of the blades and masts with fungicides deposited by helicopter -, supply of electricity even when the wind turbines are not running (ie 75% of the time)… It is estimated that twenty years of operation will be required, ie the lifetime of a wind turbine, for, in terms of CO2 emissions, compensate for implementation and dismantling! Not to mention the need, in order to guarantee energy security, to build the gas-fired power station at Landivisiau (Finistère).

Never has Erquy deserved its title of village of Asterix so much. We resist a new empire, and especially a strange drug: it shows ecological happiness where there is only devastation and destruction.

We thought it was virtuous; neither did we know Iberdrola and his methods. They took us for morons. “” At the beginning, we were not against the project, remembers Alain Coudray. Discussions with Ailes Marines-Iberdrola were not going too badly. »Then he denounces the technical lack of preparation of the site in the area. According to him, we did not want to consult the local actors who, for their part, know every stone.

Could the last hope lie in the geological nature of the subsoil, with its veins of dolerite, a particularly hard volcanic rock? “They announced three days to drill a position, that is to say three holes 3 meters in diameter per wind turbine, going up to 40 meters deep! deplores Alain Coudray. After three months, none have been finalized and all three drills are out of order. They smash the bay, but break their teeth there. “” It’s like trying to drill into concrete with a wood bit! »Adds one of his comrades. Even the tidal range (difference between high tide and low tide), the fifth largest in the world, does not seem to have been taken into account, nor the strength of the currents.

By 2028, 130 offshore wind farms could be created along the French coast

The question is now on everyone’s lips: will this park see the light of day? Since the opening of the site in May, the three successive pollutions by liquid leaks from the hydraulic drills have forced “suspensions” of work. In mid-July, a naval battle scene again opposed the fishermen of Erquy and Saint-Quay-Portrieux to the French Navy, sent to protect the “Aeolus”. “On the orders of the maritime prefect,“ Le Rhône ”came down on us, rebels Jonathan Thomas. We thought he was going to send us to the bottom. I had to put their survival gear on my men. We kept respect for the French Navy… it’s over! “Marc Le Fur, LR deputy for Côtes-d’Armor, also wonders:” I am elected, I balance costs / benefits for the taxpayer, and there I see no advantage. Between the 4.7 billion subsidy granted to the operator and the guaranteed purchase of electricity at three times the prices charged, what do we have to gain? I used the word “mafia” in the gallery of the National Assembly and I repeat it. We must consider an alternative, for example the energy produced by the swell, and stop conforming to dogma and look at reality. “

If again the energy produced by these windmills was as virtuous as announced… Supposed to reduce CO2 emissions, it pollutes, like any industrial activity, and emits a carbon footprint. Materials imported from Asia by cargo ship, assembly on French and Spanish sites, rare earths (1.3 tonnes per turbine), massive concreting, upkeep, maintenance – in particular the cleaning of the blades and masts with fungicides deposited by helicopter -, supply of electricity even when the wind turbines are not running (ie 75% of the time)… It is estimated that twenty years of operation will be required, ie the lifetime of a wind turbine, for, in terms of CO2 emissions, compensate for implementation and dismantling! Not to mention the need, in order to guarantee energy security, to build the gas-fired power station at Landivisiau (Finistère).

Never has Erquy deserved its title of village of Asterix so much. We resist a new empire, and especially a strange drug: it shows ecological happiness where there is only devastation and destruction.

Mercato OM: Fiorentina delays the transfer of Pol Lirola

On Thursday, the Italian press announced that Olympique de Marseille and Fiorentina have agreed to the final transfer of Pol Lirola. The two clubs have agreed to a new one-season loan with a mandatory buyout option set at € 12million. On his Twitter account, the Italian journalist Nicolò Schira confirmed the information, writing in particular: “Pol Lirola only wants to play for OM. The Spanish full-back decided to join Olympique Marseille and asked to be sold. Fiorentina and OM are in talks to close the deal around 12 million euros in the form of a loan with obligation to purchase. “ And while the international hopeful Spain was expected this Friday in the Marseille city to settle the final details of his return to OM, he finally stayed in Italy.

Fiorentina owner blocks Pol Lirola file

This Saturday, journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi took stock of the Lirola case. According to the former RMC Sport, “while the Fio transmitted a total agreement last night, the shareholder of Fiorentina questioned a detail of a clause thus delaying the signing of the documents. “However,” optimism on the side of Lirola and OM so that it will be settled in the coming hours. Annoyance too. “

For its part, La Provence explains that the leaders of the Florence team did not appreciate the arm wrestling attempted by the 24-year-old player to return to Marseille and therefore took the resolution to drag things out by putting in cause one of the clauses of the agreement negotiated with Pablo Longoria. The regional daily adds, however, that discussions are continuing and the case should not be canceled.

Five weeks before the parliamentary elections in Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel gave firm support on Saturday August 21 to her conservative runner-up Armin Laschet, mired in difficulties during the campaign, saying to herself “Deeply convinced” that he would succeed him. The 67-year-old chancellor, who signed up for the first time by participating in a meeting of her conservative camp in Berlin, insisted on the human qualities of Armin Laschet, capable, according to her, “To build bridges between people”.

“It has always been important for him to place individual and inalienable dignity at the center of everything”, she hammered. “I am deeply convinced” that “It is with this attitude that he will serve the Germans as chancellor”, she added while the campaign of the candidate of her party, the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), for the September 26 poll, is slipping. The CDU, along with its Bavarian ally CSU, remains in the lead in voting intentions but has fallen to between 22% and 23%, down from around 30% a few weeks ago. Since the beginning of the year when he pranced at 36%, the fall has been dizzying.

Discretion as a watchword

Angela Merkel, who is preparing to retire from political life after sixteen years in power, had so far given the slogan to remain very discreet in view of the election to leave the field open to her designated successor. Faced with this tumble in the polls, she is now trying, thanks to the record popularity which she continues to enjoy despite her thirty-one years of political career, to glean points for the conservatives.

Weakened by a series of blunders, Armin Laschet attacked his two main rivals, the Social Democrats and the Greens, claiming to want “Fight with all I can so that this country is not ruled by ideologues”. His party, which largely dominated post-war political life, “Wants to govern not because we want to govern but because we have to govern so that Germany takes the right path”, he said in front of a hundred activists.

The Conservatives are now closely followed by the Social Democratic Party (SPD), which, led by the Minister of Finance, Olaf Scholz, has made a surprise rise with 21% of voting intentions, according to the latest polls. With a current score of only 17%, environmentalists have been going through a long slump since the beginning of the summer, far from the euphoria that followed in April the announcement of the candidacy of Annalena Baerbock. The Greens had even then overtaken the Conservatives in the polls.

Renowned as not very charismatic and a poor speaker, Olaf Scholz was able to develop an image of competence among voters when Armin Laschet and Annalena Baerbock multiplied blunders and had to defend themselves against accusations of plagiarism.

Political cost of flood management

The political mismanagement of the deadly floods in July in the west of the country by Armin Laschet, leader of one of the two regions hit by the disaster, also cost him dearly in terms of popularity and encouraged the rise of the SPD. The images showing him hilariously behind President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, in the midst of a flood, aroused stigma and had a calamitous effect on a man who has never been unanimous in his own political formation.

While the results of the vote will be scrutinized throughout Europe, Armin Laschet is increasingly contested in the ranks of his party where some are demanding that he withdraw his candidacy. Laboriously elected at the head of the CDU in January, this 60-year-old centrist then had all the trouble in the world to win against his Bavarian rival Markus Söder for the head of the CDU-CSU list.

The latter nevertheless assured him on Saturday: “Armin, you can count on my support, I say this in all honesty. “ But he also sounded the alarm, believing that the current trend was « claire ». “It’s tight, it will be very tight and everyone must understand” that the stake is all or nothing, he insisted, before adding: “I don’t want to go in the opposition. “

The figures measuring the circulation of the Covid-19 epidemic in French Polynesia in recent days are soaring. Hospitals are now crumbling under a very heavy health tension, as two witnesses reported to our antenna this Saturday.

Nowhere else on French territory – where this week it is measured on average at 237.8 cases per 100,000 inhabitants over the last seven days – we will not find a higher incidence rate.

In French Polynesia, the circulation of Covid-19 is in fact estimated this Saturday at 2,793 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. A staggering level which translates into 1,416 new cases detected over the past 24 hours, 7,706 positive cases contracted since August 12. Above all, among all these statistics provided by the Polynesian Department of Health, there is a contingent of 324 hospitalizations, including 40 in intensive care units, or even a number of ten deaths during the last day alone.

The resuscitation beds are “full”

The prefecture and the local executive are trying to react. Thus, a new reconfinement will come into effect from Monday and for two weeks. In hospitals where saturation threatens, staff reinforcements have arrived from New Caledonia.

“The reinforcements sent will not be enough,” however laments Didier Bondoux, president of the union of liberal doctors in Tahiti. The practitioner and union official describes the situation bluntly to our antenna: “The evolution of the epidemic is explosive and catastrophic, it must be said.”

“We have already installed beds on the ground floor, probably planning again massive arrivals this weekend. The resuscitation beds are full,” he explains.

“We push the walls”

Mike Leyral, journalist for Tahiti Nui TV, a local television channel, continues in front of our camera: “The goal is also to preserve the hospital. in intensive care beds. The large nave of the hospital, usually a place of passage, has also become a place of hospitalization. “

A table which of course involves a human toll. And this one is heavy, already: “We have between 10 and 12 daily deaths for 15 days, which on the scale of the metropolis, would represent about 2400 daily deaths”, calculates Didier Bondoux.

It is therefore an understatement to say that the Tahitian territory is blazing under the blows of the Delta variant. How to explain it? Besides that the first waves relatively spared him, the liberal doctor lists the health reasons for this new distress among a population whose vaccination he estimates at 41%: “There are polymorbidities: diabetes, a lot of obesity.” But there is also a more sociological factor, he notes: “The variant is so contagious that it affects families where sometimes there are 15 of us living together.”

Zapping But! Football Club ASSE: the 10 biggest sales in history

Mathieu Debuchy is therefore gone. After multiple services rendered to ASSE, the 36-year-old right-back left the Greens this summer at the end of his contract. Recruited by Jean-Louis Gasset in January 2018, the former Arsenal defender has found a base at Valenciennes FC and explains behind the scenes of his departure from ASSE, which he learned the week of the last match of the season.

“Normally, each player at the end of their contract had to have an interview in April. We postponed these talks to the last week, which was a bit late in my opinion. So I saw the coach, the president and Jean-François Soucasse. Claude Puel told me that he preferred the adventure to end here for me, he told Poteaux Carrés. The coach told me that I was not starting my position and that apparently I would not have accepted to be a replacement. And he said he didn’t see me replacing. So I was released. Afterwards, maybe my salary played … I don’t know. I only got the coach’s version. It’s not easy to accept because I would have liked to do another year, but that’s how it is. “

Beyond Puel’s decision, Debuchy slipped a little sentence that seems to say a lot about the internal situation of ASSE. “There were things I would have liked to change in a lot of areas in Saint-Etienne! Bad atmosphere? No, no, absolutely not, we have a good group with a good atmosphere. Of course there were a lot of young players but there are some good guys in this group. So, no, no worries about that. Rather, these are everyday things that should be changed to improve group life. I have already discussed this with the coach. “

to summarize

Mathieu Debuchy (36) arrived at the end of his contract in June, was not extended by ASSE. The right side bounced back from the VAFC but still has a bit of bitterness despite his love for the Greens. Particularly because of the internal situation.
