It was always evident that the couple are very happy with each other. Everything indicates that the wedding brought them even closer together. Their honeymoon is extremely romantic.

Now Rooyens has published a short video of kissing his wife while sitting on a red motorcycle. In the background you can see the sunset and the sea.

“You are my dream from which I never want to wake up. In fact, you are my only treasure. My world would be incomplete without you. I will be faithful, I will stand by you, respect you and always support you,” wrote Rooyens.

Przetakiewicz and Rooyens they secretly married in Poland and in Greece, they organized a party to which they invited their family and loved ones.

God or global warming? Louisiana still hesitates

Daniel Schexnayder has ankle-deep water in his garden, damage from Hurricane Laura at the end of August still prevents him from living in his house and he has just experienced a second hurricane in six weeks. But he still doesn’t believe in global warming.

“I’m on the other side. I am with Trump ”. On Saturday, the day after Hurricane Delta, the message from the 58-year-old carpenter from the small town of Iowa, a few miles from Lake Charles, Louisiana, is clear.

However, global warming, it is proven, is caused by human activities and makes cyclones more powerful and their winds more violent.

And the coastal regions of the United States, such as Louisiana, are therefore more likely to be hit by Category 4 hurricanes – Laura was – with disastrous human, health, ecological and economic consequences.

“There are good scientists and bad scientists”, sweeps Daniel Schexnayder out of his pick-up with gasoline to feed the generator at his mother’s house.

“I accept these hurricanes because there is nothing we can do but take it all as it comes. We have no power over it, only God has it ”.

Throughout the streets of Lake Charles, messages begging for divine mercy flourished before Delta passed. In the mouths of the inhabitants, the same religious vocabulary.

Louisiana, a very religious and conservative state that voted for Donald Trump in 2016, is mostly part of the “Bible Belt” of the southern United States.

According to a study published in 2020 by a program at Yale University, of all the American states regularly affected by hurricanes, Louisiana is the one where this phenomenon is least believed (55%).

But most Louisianans interviewed by AFP are not as categorical as Daniel Schexnayder.

When asked about the responsibility of global warming in these natural disasters, many explain that they do not know, or that it is not really a subject we are talking about here.

“It could well be the case, but it could also just be the work of God”, summarizes Tracy Fontenot. In any case, whether divine or human, “I don’t know how we could escape it,” adds this 55-year-old teacher.

On Friday morning, the pouring rain that heralded the imminent arrival of Delta left no doubt in the mind of Kristy Olmster, 41, who works for an electricity supplier.

“Global warming is real,” she grumbled as she finished putting plywood on her windows and door.

A few blocks away, Arthur Durham, a 56-year-old restaurateur from Texas, agreed.

“I think those who deny the reality of climate change are pretty dumb. It’s pretty clear. I have lived near the Gulf of Mexico most of my life and this is all new. Without the human being, we wouldn’t have all of this ”.

As an elector of Joe Biden, he confides being a little alone in this very conservative parish (local equivalent of the county) of Calcasieu.

Perhaps, he admits, economic and cultural factors influence people’s interest in the environment.

For example, if his son evacuates before Delta, it is to be able to have a better internet connection for his internship at the electric car manufacturer Tesla, while many residents in the most disadvantaged neighborhoods of Lake Charles evacuate to save the little they have.

But above all, he points to the influence of the oil industry in the region.

These refineries located on the banks of the Calcasieu River and that we see or hear for miles, when the region is not swept by a hurricane. Louisiana alone represents 20% of the country’s refining capacity.

Here, “there are people who work for companies who do not necessarily subscribe to climate change, because it would have an impact on their operation”, he explains.

Oil companies that are increasingly worried about their turnover because of the rising waters or the devastation like that caused by Hurricane Harvey in Texas in 2017.

Epic Games cannot bring Fortnite back to the App Store. The court issued an order

Epic Games i Apple they have been in an open dispute with each other for some time, and the matter related to the expulsion Fortnite with App Store by breaking the rules of the platform, it was even brought to an American court. The developers responsible for battle royal wanted to force the judiciary to bring the game back to the store, although this will not happen, at least in the near future. Yesterday, Judge Yvonne Gonzales Rogers upheld its earlier decision by refusing Epic Games to acknowledge claims related to Apple being forced to return Fortnite to the App Store. This means that Epic is still banned from publishing productions for iOS and the aforementioned platform with applications. If the studio wants to return, it must change the rules of Fortnite.

Judge Yvonne Gonzales Rogers upheld its earlier decision, refusing Epic Games to acknowledge claims related to Apple being forced to return Fortnite to the App Store. This means that Epic is still banned from publishing productions for iOS and the aforementioned platform with applications.

So they have to remove the options to bypass Apple commissions and only then will it be possible to report battle royala again to the App Store. At the same time, Epic Games won the second battle regarding the proprietary Unreal Engine and, according to the order, the giant from Cupertino cannot block this engine. Importantly, it is a permanent version of the ruling, which was initially published a month ago. In a shared statement, an Epic representative admitted he was grateful for the second decision as Apple would not be able to retaliate against Unreal Engine and game developers. It was also admitted that the company still plans to develop dedicated iOS and Mac solutions under the protection of the court and wants to end the monopoly behavior of Apple.

An Apple spokesman also referred to the court’s verdict: “Our clients rely on a secure and trusted App Store, where all developers follow established rules. We are grateful that the court found that Epic Games’ actions were not in the best interests of customers and that any problems they encountered were caused by them at the time of breaching the terms of the contract, ”the statement said. It’s hard to judge how Epic Games will behave now and whether it will continue to fight in court or adapt to the requirements of the iPhone manufacturer. The creators of the popular battle royal decided to join forces with Spotify and the goal of this cooperation is lobbying to change the rules governing application stores.
