A. Fernández announced the resumption of works to convert two routes to the Coast into semi-highways

President Alberto Fernández and Governor Axel Kicillof today led the announcement of the restart of works to convert routes 11 and 56, part of the Atlantic Corridor, into semi-highways, used by millions of motorists in the summer season to go to and from the Coast.

The event took place at the Olivos Residence, where the Minister of Public Works, Gabriel Katopodis, was also present, while the Minister of Infrastructure and Public Services of Buenos Aires, Agustín Simone, and the general administrator of National Roads, Gustavo Arrieta, participated by videoconference.

Last Wednesday, the Nation and the Province signed the agreement for the completion of the aforementioned transformation works on the highway, in three sections, for a total investment of around 5 billion pesos.

The reactivation of the works, paralyzed since September 2019, are scheduled for the month of November and include improvements in the General Conesa-San Clemente del Tuyú and San Clemente del Tuyú-Mar de Ajó sections, on route 11, and General Conesa -General Madariaga on route 56.

The first of the segments is in a 77% state of execution, it will work on 58 kilometers, it is expected to be completed in June 2021 and it anticipates an investment of $ 1,546 million.

The second of the sections, advanced by 81%, includes an investment of $ 1,034 million, consists of 37 kilometers of work and the estimated completion period is six months.

While the third of the planned works, on Route 56, is 75% advanced, it will be executed over a total of 62 kilometers and is expected to be ready in September of next year, with an initial investment of $ 2.489 million.

These are two routes that in the summer season register a very high level of vehicular traffic of tourists that go to the Partido de la Costa (mostly through route 11) and to Pinamar and Villa Gesell, by route 56.

[AFP] Two American astronauts on their way to Earth aboard the SpaceX capsule

The first astronauts to have reached the International Space Station (ISS) aboard an American aircraft in almost 10 years left Saturday, in the SpaceX capsule, to return to Earth, despite the risk of a hurricane in Florida.

“And here they are!”, Tweeted Nasa announcing that Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley had left the ISS, after broadcasting images showing the capsule detaching slowly and smoothly from the craft in the darkness of the ‘space.

The undocking was done on time, around 11:34 p.m. GMT, two months after the arrival of the two men on board the capsule created by the company of the eccentric entrepreneur Elon Musk, the US space agency said, adding that it was taking “a safe course”.

The water landing is scheduled for Sunday at 14:41 (1841 GMT) in the Gulf of Mexico. It has been maintained in western Florida as Tropical Storm Isaias, which could become a hurricane again, threatens the eastern coasts of the southeastern peninsula of the United States.

A site off the town of Pensacola (in northern Florida) has been selected as “priority” for the water landing, with an alternative in front of Panama City, if the sea is too rough or the winds too strong.

A few hours earlier, the two astronauts had said goodbye to the three colleagues they left behind.

“The hardest part was getting us into orbit, but the most important thing is getting us home,” said Bob Behnken a few hours before the deadline.

The operation is indeed delicate, even if last year, the Dragon capsule accomplished this mission empty and without incident. Atmospheric reentry will test the resistance of the heat shield. Then, you will have to rely on large parachutes to slow the descent to the ocean.

– Dinosaur in zero gravity –

Speaking to his son and that of his colleague, Bob Behnken brandished a small colorful dinosaur, chosen by the children to accompany them in “this historic mission” and which he let fly in weightlessness for a few moments.

“Tremor the apatosaurus is coming home with your dads!” He told them, surrounded by his two Russian colleagues, Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Vagner, and the head of the mission, Captain Chris Cassidy.

“We say goodbye to our two friends and colleagues,” said the latter, saying to himself both “sad” to see them go and “delighted” that the ISS has new ways “to bring and do leave “astronauts.

Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley became the first astronauts to be transported to the International Space Station, 400 km from Earth, by a private company, under contract with NASA.

The flight, whose departure had already been postponed due to changing weather conditions, also marked the first manned flight launched from the United States since 2011, when the space shuttles were shut down. Americans have since been traveling on Russian rockets.

NASA has tasked SpaceX, which had been delivering cargo to the ISS since 2012, to develop a new space taxi, and if the current mission is certified safe, the Americans will no longer depend on the Russians for access to space.

For three billion dollars, granted since 2011 as part of a fixed price contract, SpaceX has promised NASA six round trips to the ISS, with four astronauts on board.

French astronaut Thomas Pesquet said this week that he will in turn travel aboard Space X’s Crew Dragon for his second mission to the ISS in spring 2021.

[Sport] Jordan Francis-Marie (Plobsheim, N2) : Interlude comforting

Two years after he turned his back to the professional world, in order to focus on a project of rooms d hosts with his girlfriend, Jordan François Marie, 30 years old, decided to dive back into them. In N1, the ASPTT Mulhouse-Rixheim.

His bonhomie and his tone of voice had not changed with time. At the end of the wire, Jordan François Marie, comfortably installed in Richtolsheim for the past two years, takes the time to recount his return to the professional environment, after having left three years earlier. He was then at Dijon, in Proligue. “I still had a year of contract, but it’s been a while that I wanted to see something else. Out of the world of handball, and discover what I expected. At 26 years old, I started to ask myself lots of questions. Two years later, I announced to the president (of Dijon) that I wanted to stop. “The idea of holding a cottage/guest house has already sprouted and flowered in his mind. And that of his companion. But it is by being the hand on his first house that the project will take the body. In The Alsace Region. “I came to play Sélestat to 20 years, and I liked him a lot as a Regionsays the left-handed arm would be overkill, that the Reunion had been able to see in some of the exhibitions at the Stage of Is. My wife is also a native. And I like the double culture franco-German. We therefore bought a house, that I bucked up. We then stumbled on an ad for a farmhouse 15 minutes from where we lived. “Resale express of the house, coupled with a more-value, reinforces the good feelings of Jordan. “This meant that what we had done was not so lame that it “, laugh the Sedan, whose father was a native of Saint-Denis, where the major part of his family. The result looks like a passage of arms passed. Great specialty of this rear shooter, which is not leaving the world of the ball pégueuse.

“As I was learning not especially good at school, I knew that later I would have to work hard to succeed”

More than the purpose of keeping a pension, “I needed to get out of my comfort zone and finding myself in a different environment where I do not know large-thing.” It is by the sweat of his brow and his arms the triple champion of France with Montpellier) continues to build his place of work. ” “As I was learning not especially good at school, I knew that later I would have to work hard to succeed, continues Jordan. And this is what is happening. But I have no regrets ! Where the path of this project, and that is done all alone, from A to Z, with my wife. This is something that we want to do it by ourselves. Even the most complicated things.” Like electrical, or even the slaughter of load-bearing walls… After several months of work, the body of farmhouse dating back to the Eighteenth century therefore involves the home of the “JFM“, a second, rented as a gite, and an old barn in the course of transformation. “We carried out three independent cottages with a common room to take breakfast”, describes François-Marie. The passage of the Covid-19 has not been a big change. Even still… “I have not changed my daily life, in fact, continues Jordan. There is a shop, not very far away, where I could buy my equipment during the confinement. I was in my work. The big disappointment is that the lodge was almost full for the month of April…” So much the worse. The current affairs have resumed their good right since. And the taste of the competition lacked the former junior international, who continued to evolve in N2 at Plobsheim, this season, after having made a detour to Annecy (N2). “The N2 is not enough for me more, supports François-Marie. Just as the functioning, more focused on the fun than the competition. However, I have been educated and prepared to win. This is what I will find to Mulhouse/Rixheim, which will evolve in N1 Hen Elite. This is a superb opportunity that will allow me to combine the handball professional, and my career. “ For the occasion, the unique and first-professional player of the club will have to recover some of its superb on the physical plane. “Three months ago, I was to pick it up. But then, I’m back to a weight more in line with the competition. “ A sacred appreciation for the club mulhousien, if he regains his level of old.

[Economie] The patterns of the box hoping for a waiver

SAINT-PAUL. Several patrons of the nightclub have met the sub-prefect of Saint-Paul, yesterday afternoon, to obtain a waiver allowing them to open until 4 or 5 o’clock in the morning. The hope is permitted.

On the scale of the plan déconfinement, the nightclubs are at the bottom of the priorities. They might reopen in September, maybe, if all goes well. “One arrives after the trade fairs, exhibitions… Even the dance clubs were able to reopen ! It is housed in the same boat as cruises, that is to say,”, whining Bianca, the Loft. This week, the prefecture has, however, granted a waiver allowing night clubs to open until 2 o’clock in the morning. It is a step forward welcomed but still not enough. And for good reason. Dance floors must remain closed. “This is a first gesture, estimated Arnaud Mauduit, the manager of the Loft. But it is a palliative. We did the half or the quarter of the turnover as usual”.”

However, institutions must continue to bear their expenses : rent, advance on wages in the framework of partial unemployment… “We have had no assistance from the State. And then, we must think of our employees who receive 80 % of their salary for 3 months as well as our suppliers whose alcooliers, the electricians, the people that are usually taken in extra. All of these people can no longer work with us”continues Arnaud Mauduit.

“Massive losses”

The meeting, yesterday afternoon, with the sub-prefect of Saint-Paul, has the opportunity to convey a message : “We wish to re-open until 4 or 5 o’clock in the morning, observing the gestures of the barrier. The sub-prefect does not seem to be the opposite. It would allow you to thin the attendance of the bars.”

Saint-Gilles to Saint-Pierre, passing by Saint-Denis, the gestures of the barrier seem to be a distant memory. Just go out in the evening to realize it. The bars are full and the masks remain in the bag. “We hope to obtain this exemption prior to July 11, where the third phase of the déconfinement will enter into force. Maybe the boxes will then reopen normally. Each new day of the closure, these are huge losses that we must absorb. This derogation would be beneficial but not satisfactory”, judge Julie Lauret, manager, Rebornin Saint-Pierre.

“What is good is that we did not have to convince the sub-prefectsays Mathieu, of the Titty Club in Saint-Gilles. It is on the same line as us, but he can’t do everything. Our fate depends on a national decree. But it’s going to get our message out to the prefect.”

[Economie] Avi-to-Pole ordered to pay 135 € 500 to a breeder of guinea fowl

COOPERATIVE. For the past two years, the Farm of the Piton, which produces a fowl can no longer work. In conflict with the cooperative Avi-to-Pole to a problem of access to his livestock. Forced to go to court, the breeder has succeeded to do so heavily condemn.

For several years, Xavier jean-claude Trichet, the owner of the Farm of the Piton, is installed in the heights of Saint-Denis to the Piton Wood Nèfles. He returned to the rearing of guinea fowls as his father-in-law had created about 40 years ago. “I was producing between 10 and 12 000 guinea fowls every two or three months. I worked 365 days a year,” he explains. In 2018, everything stops abruptly. A member of the cooperative Avi-to-Pole, it is faced this year has big problems with the co-operative. “At this time, all the slaughterhouses have been redeemed by Duchemann-Grondin. What has changed the method of removal of my guinea fowl. Trucks larger than 19 tons had to borrow my path that may be difficult to access (so that the path is forbidden to more than 3,5 ton, editor’s NOTE). One day a truck has made a bad maneuver and is stuck for a whole day. The drivers have decided to exercise their right of withdrawal,” says Xavier jean-claude Trichet.

It is at this point that the trouble begins. The cooperative Avi-to-Pole then decides to stop coming to retrieve his poultry. “Gold as a member of the cooperative, each of the commitments to be respected.” Xavier Trichet provided the entirety of its production and the co-op undertook in exchange to take the whole delivery. A relationship of interdependence. Except that Avi-to-Pole him by mail that it will no longer support the removal as the path to his farm will not be rendered practicable. The drop of water will be stopping by the Urcoopa of the delivery of food to its guinea-fowls on the same pretext that the cooperative Avi-to-Pole. “Is this what it is because I am the only breeder to Saint-Denis ?”, if he asked.

Penalty liquidated

Without activity and therefore without an income, the situation pushes Mr. Trichet to put his firm into receivership. A heart-breaking for him. Will without follow, at a first time, a marathon with the municipal departments of Saint-Denis for attempt to rehabilitate his way of the commune. In vain. “That’s why I turned to the justice,” he continued.

In February 2019, assisted by his lawyer, Me Patel, he does assign Avi-to-Pole in proceedings before the TGI of Saint-Denis with the objective of firm is to enforce the contractual provisions of the uniting of his farm to the cooperative. A winning approach, as the tribunal will recognize that the cooperative has failed to meet its obligations ; and that the excuse of the way impassable to its trucks could not be accepted. “It belonged to the cooperative to use an adapted vehicle,” notes the tribunal that will condemn the co-op has to pay a provision of over € 38,000 to the farm of Mr. Trichet, but above all in order to Avi-to-Pole restoring the faster its contractual relations under penalty of a fine of 500 euros per day of delay. This summary proceeding is the subject of an appeal which will be reviewed next November, but nothing has changed between the two parties. If Xavier Trichet has managed to barely avoid the liquidation of his farm, the absence of reaction of the co-op has pushed him to seize the judge of the execution to liquidate the periodic penalty payment which would run for a year. “We wanted to implement the decision. I no longer had any back to school money,” he says. Result, Avi-to-Pole has been heavily condemned. It must now pay 135 500 euros – a sum which corresponds to the liquidation of the periodic penalty payment of € 500 per day – to the breeder of fowl, but especially to respect decisions made by the IGT in June 2019. Enough to revive its operations ? “For the past two years, all is here the stop. It will take me time to restart everything”, he warns. Provided that the cooperative complies with its obligations.
