The FNSEA assumes the rise in prices and calls for “eating French”

Eating fruits and vegetables has been more expensive since the coronavirus epidemic began. On average, a household’s shopping basket would have increased from € 12 to € 15. This is what emerges from the survey conducted by the consumer association UFC-Que Choisir, which found, after four weeks of confinement, an increase of 6% for conventional products and up to 12% for organic products. .

→ LIVE. Coronavirus: the deconfinement strategy unveiled Tuesday at 3 p.m.

An increase which could be explained, according to Christiane Lambert, president of the FNSEA, the main agricultural union, less by inflation than by the new appetite of the French for national productions.

“Fruits and vegetables are more expensive because they are French. This is explained by a higher cost of labor and more demanding health standards than in certain competing countries “, detailed Christiane Lambert during a press briefing Friday, April 24.

This one assumes besides, like the whole of the profession, the situation. “Today, producers sell their asparagus and strawberries at a remunerative price and that’s good”, she adds. However, it turns out that a French strawberry can cost between 70% and 100% more expensive than a Spanish strawberry.

Less competitive competition

The increase is also due to an evolution of the shelved offer. The circulation restrictions put in place worldwide to limit the spread of the coronavirus pandemic have meant that fewer Spanish and Moroccan fruits and vegetables are now sold on French stalls.

What is more, foreign agricultural producers encounter the same difficulties in producing and harvesting as their French counterparts and they have to increase their prices, at the risk of making themselves less competitive.

Another explanation: prices systematically increase between March and April due to the change of season. “But there is no spectacular flight, despite the increase in transport costs, says Laurent Grandin, president of Interfel, the fruit and vegetable industry. We do everything to maintain the accessibility of our products. “

“Our jobs are your shopping!” “

For its part, the French government has assured that it will take care to avoid any spike in prices, but it believes that the increase noted so far remains bearable. At the beginning of April, the Minister of the Economy Bruno Le Maire thus recalled: “What we pay in addition is of course the quality of French production. “

For the FNSEA, the challenge now is to register this trend over time. “Eat French!” French producers need you to stay loyal to them “, insists Christiane Lambert. The FNSEA president notably draws consumers’ attention to the products that have suffered the most from the crisis: certain poultry such as pigeon or quail, french fries and cut cheeses.

“We want to show that we can put on the market more expensive, but more qualitative products, which maintain the French agricultural sector, says Christiane Lambert. Our jobs are your shopping! “

What to eat to increase defenses

Updated:

save

Frequent hand washing and physical distance are the main measures to avoid coronavirus. But, in addition, we should take care that our immune system, the complex network of cells, tissues and organs that work as a team to defend ourselves from the “invaders”, is found as strong as possible.

Although there are factors that influence our defenses and that we cannot control such as genetics, age, sex, chronic diseases, etc., there are others, related to lifestyle, that we can modulate. So it is important that during confinement we do not fall into unhealthy habits.

“Nutrition is essential for the proper functioning of the immune system. This is made up of many cells that are being generated almost continuously, and which, therefore, is very demanding of nutrients (minerals, amino acids from proteins …), “doctors Africa González and Alfredo Corell, president, explain to ABC. and vowel, respectively, of the Spanish Society of Immunology (SEI). It has been shown that malnutrition (lack of protein and calorie intake) causes a secondary immunodeficiency situation, and that inadequate diets, in which specific nutrients are suppressed, could also cause problems in our immune system, experts say.

A poor diet translates into an increase in infections and this has been verified, González and Corell point out, in the case of «deficiencies of zinc, selenium, iron, vitamins A, C, D or E, among some others ». The recommended way to avoid deficiencies is a varied diet that includes vegetables, legumes, fresh fruits, eggs, meat, fish, dairy and cereals.

No alcohol and tobacco

Confinement can be a good time to get away from your routine. two habits that harm the immune system: alcohol and tobacco. The experts consulted recommend not drinking, even in moderate amounts. They warn that the consumption of distilled alcohol has an immunosuppressive effect, “with mechanisms very similar to those that occur in situations of depression or stress.”

With respect to tobacco, it is very harmful because “it alters the entire line of defenses in our respiratory mucosa and is at the origin of the development of various types of cancers,” they point out.

Yes it is recommended to do moderate exercise on regular basis. Both sedentary lifestyle and strenuous physical activity negatively affect the immune system. And other factors that are in your hand for optimal defenses: having the vaccines recommended posts, sleep 7/8 hours and avoid prolonged stressful situations.

Where do we find …

Zinc and selenium: meats, cereals, fish, dairy and eggs.

Vitamin A: Red, orange and dark green vegetables, dairy and eggs.

Vitamin C: Fruits and vegetables (citrus, strawberries, kiwi and broccoli).

Vitamin E: olive oil.

Vitamin D: blue fish, eggs, dairy and avocado.

Does exercising after eating help you lose weight? We solve your doubts

There are many myths about exercise and many doubts that arise once we consider training a little more constantly. For example, it is not uncommon to doubt what time of day it is better train.

Another of the most common questions is related to foods. Do we have to wait the digestion hours or not necessary? It is not unusual, after a large meal, to feel the need to exercise quickly to lower the feeling of satiety, but is it healthy?

So, Is it a good idea to play sports right after eating? Does it serve to burn the calories of what we have just ingested? No and no. The answer to both questions is a negative and the truth is that it makes perfect sense once we think about it calmly. To begin with because if we jump from the table to the treadmill without letting time pass, food will still be in our stomachs.

We will not be burning at all what we just consumed because we have not given our body time to process it. That exercise that we are doing it is not for this and, in fact, it is not a good thing to do.

You should wait before exercising. (Jonathan Borba for Unsplash)

During digestion our body sends more blood to the stomach, so that the digestive system can process all food and turn it into essential nutrients for our body.

If we start exercising, the blood will leave this area and will move to the muscles, which is where it is required at that time, which can cause fainting, dizziness and even cuts of digestion.

So the most recommended is wait a few hours after eating before starting exercise. For example, it is worth waiting an hour if you want to play sports after breakfast, so your body will have completely metabolized it and you will have more energy to work.

If you want to lose weight, it is best to do the digestion before. (Juan Pablo Rodríguez for Unsplash)

If it was a normal meal, two hours will suffice. If it has been a large meal, it is best to wait about four hours.

If you have no more free hours in the day and the only time you can exercise It is after eating, the most advisable thing is to make a small meal about three quarters of an hour before and to carry out low intensity exercises.

Therefore, the theory that playing sports right after eating helps you lose fat and burn calories is refuted. The best thing is to let the body finish digesting and so we can make better use of training.

“Artists also have to eat”

The US economy hit the ground with the crash of 1929. The first reaction to lift the country was not ambitious enough to produce the long-awaited recovery. Failure cost President Herbert Hoover the job in an election won by Theodor Roosevelt, who launched the ‘New Deal’ in two phases, in 1933 and 1935, with the aim of cleaning up finances and promoting employment: also that of the creators.

“Artists have to eat, too,” his advisor Harry Hopstein told Roosevelt. He took it seriously. He hired muralists, writers, theater directors, and actors to keep the citizens of his country willing to live in dark times. He recruited photographers like Walker Evans and Dorothea Lange so that they would respectfully portray their most disadvantaged compatriots. And he also ordered that they be interviewed, a material that even today is one of the best sources for historians.

Sound cinema and radio

One of them, Morris Dickestein, dedicated one of his works to the support of the Roosevelt Administration to artists. The 1930s began with bankrupt film studios, with the ‘nightclubs’ where the best live music was offered closed, with the theaters and publishers fighting against misery. Shirley Temple and the Marx Brothers, the swing, and composers like George Gershwin and Irving Berlin, writers like Henry Roth and William Faulkner soon emerged.

The evolution of radio allowed to broadcast live Duke Ellington concerts from the Cotton Club of Harlem

According to Dickenstein, this cultural revival in the midst of the depression was favored by the then new technologies. Sound cinema emerged and with it musical comedies and film realism. The evolution of radio allowed the concerts of Duke Ellington and his orchestra to be heard live at the Cotton Club in Harlem.

The thirties were those of the hard realism of John Steinbeck and ‘The Grapes of Wrath’. But the general public leaned towards the energy-laden culture, the crazy comedies, the dance to the rhythm of the ‘big bands’ and the musicals. In times of stagnation, rampant fears and downward hopes, they became a dynamic force capable of raising morale and setting people in motion. The choreography in the cinema and in the theater gained a central role.

Roosevelt understood that culture and entertainment played a very important part in the lives of Americans. But it was not all dances. After ‘The Great Gatsby’, Francis Scott Fitzgerald published ‘Smooth is the Night’ about the obsession with triumph, which had led to failure. Protest singer-songwriters like Woody Guthrie also began in the thirties. Nothing to do with Shirley Temple. In any case, the culture had an unprecedented recognition in the midst of an economic catastrophe.

Notre Dame awaits her resurrection in an induced coma

A huge crane watches over the patient from above. Bandaged and splinted, still trapped by its fire-iron prison, Notre Dame Cathedral wait in an induced coma the beginning of his recovery. Just a year ago, hell unleashed itself on its roof and turned smoke into part of the history of France. Everything that seemed stable for ever and ever went up in flames, and the whole country was united in tragedy and the hope of its reconstruction.

It is possible that the pandemic has updated the meaning of the unreal. But the night that Notre Dame burned had that feeling of unreality great moments in history. The fire started at 6:43 p.m. on that April 15 and, an hour and a quarter later, its needle, Violet-le-Duc’s 93-meter-high masterpiece, succumbed to the flames before the helpless and stupefied gaze of millions of people.

More than 600 firefighters they fought for 15 hours to turn it offBut the crucial moment of the night, as they later recognized, was the 20 minutes it took to control the fire that was beginning to spread through one of its beautiful Gothic towers, and which was about to cause a chain collapse. With dawn came the sighs of relief, and also the promises of reconstruction. Like the Phoenix Bird, Notre Dame would be reborn from its ashes in five years, President Emmanuel Macron then promised.

Since then, a public body has been created to centralize and speed up work, chaired by an enthusiastic retired general, Jean-Louis Georgelin. But the situation of the cathedral remains “Maximum urgency”, according to the teams working on its consolidation, while unforeseen events such as lead contamination or the Covid-19 pandemic have delayed the project.

Scaffolding is the main obstacle to start the restoration. The 500-ton mastodon – which had been installed months before to renovate the roof – was made a mass of irons by the fire. On March 23, technicians specialized in working at height were going to start dismantling it, sawing piece by piece hanging on ropes. An immense 75-meter-high crane was installed in December to lower the 500,000 tubes that make up the frame, while a sensor system will record the smallest oscillation. The operation, which was to last four months, has been paralyzed by the Covid-19 crisis.

The Lead Threat

Along with the scaffolding, lead has been the another headache of the work. The fire melted the 1,326 five-millimeter lead plates that covered the roof of the cathedral, weighing 210 tons. Some of that lead was released into particulates, which contaminated much of the surroundings of Notre Dame. The works had to be stopped from July to the end of August last year to decontaminate these areas and to put in place a protection device against this heavy metal, dangerous for health.

Cleaning up lead has, however, proved to be a difficult task. Techniques used so far, such as high pressure cleaning or vacuuming have not given the results expected. Last February, the technicians wanted to test a new cold resin cleaning system on the front esplanade, which has had to be paralyzed by confinement.

The reconstruction mystery

Without having yet managed to stabilize the cathedral, the reconstruction plans remain in a phase of debate. It has not even been decided whether the oak structure that supported the roof, known as “the forest” and that was reduced to ashes, will be reconstructed in wood or will be chosen other material. Nor if the needle will rise again in the image and likeness that the one built by Viollet-le-Duc in the 19th century – as the chief architect of the restoration, Philippe Villeneuve seems to favor – or will the door be opened to new ideas.

How it all started?

From the beginning, the investigation pointed to accidental motives. Either a short circuit in the elevator area installed to repair the roof or a badly extinguished cigarette end. In February, Paris prosecutor Remy Heitz acknowledged that the investigation «it will last, it is complex, colossal». The Police Prefecture laboratory had asked to collect new samples in the area where the fire is believed to have originated, for which it will be necessary to wait for the scaffolding to be removed.

But, if the investigation has not yet been able to prove how the fire originated, it has evidenced human failures that allowed the fire to spread. A misinterpretation of the fire detection system delayed the call to the fire department. The security officer in charge at the time had only been at his post for four days and, by the time he managed to understand where the fire might be – after an 18-minute telephone conversation with his superior – the flames were already devouring part of the wooden structure. that held the roof of the cathedral.

The collected money

The embers of the cathedral had not yet faded when a shower of pledge donations began to fall on the ruins of Notre Dame, encouraged, no doubt, by excitement, but also by the government’s announcement of a 75% tax deduction. . Among them, the great French fortunes of luxury, such as the Arnault family, owners of LVMH, of 200 million euros, and the Pinault, owners of Kering, for 100 million euros.

More than 900 million have already been confirmed by the four foundations in charge of collecting them, although most of them will be disbursed over the years depending on the needs.

From Frankfurt to Berlin: virtual tour of museums

Apostponed is not canceled. Next time. Most certainly. There is always something in between. No time. No opportunity. No more vacation day. There are so many great museums in this country, and each one delights visitors in a unique way.

But most travelers usually only manage to book a city museum trip for the major blockbuster exhibitions. Although so many museums are on the to-do lists of those who love to travel, all too often good will remains. Now there are new ways to conveniently work through the to-do list.

There are more than 6,800 museums in Germany, with around 114 million visitors a year. And now that they’re closed, museums are sorely missing. But: More and more houses have been digitizing their holdings for a long time and making them virtually accessible bit by bit.

The corona pandemic is accelerating the trend: many museum directors react flexibly, enable new online tours or present individual exhibits on the Internet. Stroll and be amazed from the living room.

Art in Corona times

The museums communicate their offers on their websites, the digital tours can also be found on YouTube, Twitter and Instagram, often tagged with #MuseumFromHome or #ClosedbutOpen – closed but open. So it is worth discovering the museums from a new perspective. Here we present the ten most ambitious virtual free vernissages in Germany.

Frankfurt: Great cinema near Schirn and Städel

It was planned for spring 2020: with my mother, I wanted the spectacular exhibition “Fantastische Frauen. Surreal worlds from Meret Oppenheim to Frida Kahlo ”at the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, which actually runs until mid-May. But then Corona intervened.

Fortunately, it now turns out that the Schirn is actually showing the exhibition digitally, with pictures, stories and quotes by Frida Kahlo, Meret Oppenheim, Claude Cahun and Leonora Carrington. There is also a video tour, podcasts as “Art for the Ears” and knowledgeable “Schirn Shortcuts”, in which works are served as three-minute art nibbles (schirn.de/besuch/).

Great! By the way, my 81-year-old mother discovered this virtual exhibition. Now I can take a tour with her, each in front of her screen, and enjoy art together.

A virtual leap further goes to the nearby Städel Museum in Frankfurt, which is considered a pioneer of digitization. There is a digital, well-curated collection from 700 years of art history and an online course on art from 1750 to the present day.

Exciting: The five-part podcast series “Finding van Gogh” embarks on the search for the last large portrait of Vincent van Gogh, the “Portrait of Dr. Gachet ”, which has been missing from the public eye for three decades (staedelmuseum.de, then click “Digital”).

There is even a virtual journey through time through the museum, conveniently on the desktop, tablet or even on the smartphone with the free app for the virtual reality glasses Samsung Gear VR. You can stroll through the reconstructed museum rooms from 1878 on the Schaumainkai (zeitreise.staedelmuseum.de).

Munich: Round trips in the German Museum

Here you can spend days, oh what, weeks and feel smarter by the minute. The Deutsches Museum in Munich and its locations at the Schleißheim and Bonn flight yards are digitally “always open”, it says on its website.

The virtual offer is incredibly diverse. In one-hour videos “Science for everyone”, there are current topics from science and technology – such as “The discrete mathematics of democracy” or “Superfood from the 3D printer”.

Virtual tours through shipping, aviation and space travel can be seen with 360-degree photographs. Round trips through space are offered, as well as lessons on Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler and Earth satellites. The free app with science snacks has already 100,000 downloads.

Demonstrations also go digital: for example flash shows and experiments with nitrogen; and in the podcast as “Museum to Hear” there are contributions with insights behind the scenes of research on objects and exhibitions in the German Museum – from cryptology to particle physics. Particularly popular: a virtual walk on the moon (deutsches-museum.de, click on “digital offers” there).

Essen: Van Gogh in the Folkwang Museum

Germany’s art critics have just voted the Folkwang Museum in Essen “Museum of the Year”. The German department of the International Association of Art Critics AICA justified the decision with the fact that the house always combines its important collection with works by Paul Cézanne, Gustave Courbet, Max Beckmann or Otto Dix “with thematically current special exhibitions”.

The Museum Folkwang is expanding its digital presence, launched its own app and expanded its partnership with the free cultural platform Google Art Project.

The virtual exhibition “Vincent van Gogh very close” shows one of his icons: Consisting of over a billion pixels, the digital version of van Gogh’s “Rhonebarken” allows zooming in down to the smallest details of the painting. With the zoom function you can see even the smallest brushstrokes of the genius (museum-folkwang.de as well as about artsandculture.google.com).

Berlin: Nefertiti and T-Rex Tristan in the museum

The bust of Nefertiti, Schliemann’s Troja collection, Édouard Manet’s “Winter Garden” or Auguste Rodin’s “The Thinker” are among the public’s favorites. The Museum Island normally attracts almost three million visitors from all over the world every year with its collections in the Old and New Museums, in the Old National Gallery, in the Pergamon and Bode Museum.

Those who are currently grieving to miss Raphael’s current grandiose Madonna exhibition in the Gemäldegalerie will have a surprising opportunity to catch up. “Even when our museums are currently closed, visitors do not have to do without the masterpieces of the great Raphael,” says Michael Eissenhauer, general director of the State Museums in Berlin and director of the picture gallery and sculpture collection. The catalog is in honor of the master of the Italian Renaissance “Raphael in Berlin” available for download on the website of the State Museums – free of charge (smb.museum).

All of the houses now offer virtual tours, including the Bode Museum: 61 of its rooms can be explored thanks to 360-degree panoramas (bode360.smb.museum).

In the Pergamon Museum you can enjoy an unexpected 3D view of the hall with the Pergamon Altar, which will remain closed until 2023 due to renovation (3d.smb.museum/pergamonaltar).

A virtual tour is also worthwhile in the nearby Museum of Natural History in Berlin-Mitte. Because the best-preserved dinosaur skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus Rex – with its 1.50 meter head – can still be admired online, although Tristan, like the T-Rex, was actually out of town. The rattling frame was dismantled and his bones lent to Copenhagen (museumfuernaturkunde.berlin).

“In the picture gallery it looks like Hempels under the sofa”

Is the red liquid from the flesh blood?

Especially when grilling, fresh meat is often put on the grill, which is only seasoned with a few spices. It is striking that a red juice often remains in the package. What’s this?

They unpack a piece of meat, leaving a red liquid. Sometimes it comes out of the meat when it is cooked. Is this blood?

What is the red liquid?

The juice that comes out of fresh meat is not blood. It is a liquid that contains the molecule myoglobin, explains the online magazine “twentytwowords.com”. From the outside, myoglobin is similar to the blood pigment hemoglobin, but it ensures that oxygen can be stored in the muscles. So the more active the animal was, the more oxygen its muscles needed. As a result, meat from animals with a lot of movement contains more myoglobin and is easily recognized by a striking red color.

When the meat is cooked, the liquid increases. The heat releases water from the meat, which combines with the oxygen-binding molecule and turns the broth red. This increases the “blood” effect.

Why is steak “bloody”?

Animals have to bleed completely after slaughter before their meat can be processed. A piece of meat that was not properly bled would spoil quickly and thus become inedible.

A “bloody” steak is actually a “watery” steak. It still contains enough liquid and is therefore soft and tender. However, the longer it is cooked, the more water evaporates. It becomes solid. Although the expression “watery” steak would be correct, this sounds however less appetizing.
