Back in the classroom : parents shared between relief and concern

It was the announcement the highest of the speech of the president of the Republic, on 14 June, when he presented the acceleration of the déconfinement : “Kindergartens, schools, colleges are preparing to welcome from June 22, all students, on a mandatory basis and according to the rules of normal presence. “

For many parents, shared in the last three months between the guards of the children, school at home and telework, in the words of Emmanuel Macron on Sunday, have removed a big weight in the family organization.

The image of Mary, “very happy “ this return to the classroom full-time. His daughter is educated in PT, school Freedom, in the city centre of Rennes. “We had fears about the virus for the resumption of classes on may 11, so our daughter has resumed from 1 June, two days per week, explains Mary. But here, for once, I have no more concerns, since we know the low dangerousness to the children. “

Mary does not work, but had decided to give his daughter “for his well-being, for she found the dynamics of the school. Fifteen days full time will enable him to finish his school year while saying goodbye to all his comrades. As she is an only child, his friends are many. “

“It is the emotional lift “

Send their child to full-time, other parents only dream of, but some institutions have decided to maintain the home part time despite the instructions of the government. As in this private school in the suburbs of rennes (under contract with the State), where Vincent, a father of two children in kindergarten and the CE1 is in “the misunderstanding “.

“It really is the emotional lift, he confides. Wednesday, I was ready to crack the champagne when Jean-Michel Blanquer has confirmed the relief of the health protocol and the home of all the students, but on Thursday, it was the cold shower : the management of the school announced to us the maintenance of the home over two days, due to the protocol binding and injunctions paradoxical of the department. “ A hard kick to her companion, who takes care of the children from the confinement, while telecommuting, and whose employer does not include the impossibility to return to the office. “The children also have need of these fifteen school days “, argues Vincent.

But this return mandatory class is also rejected by parents, who are organized otherwise. Some have already sent the children home to the grandparents, others fear the resumption of the epidemic.

“The epidemic is not over “

“It is a pity, for two weeks, risking a second wave of “, considers Elise, who lives in Haute-Marne. She decided to pursue school to my house with her three children (kindergarten, CP and CM1) for “let the children most in need and to relieve the teachers “. She has even made a formal request for a statement home to be “legit “, but if is made “serinée “ by the academic leadership. “Anyway, the director of the school told me that I would not be worried. “

Same decision for Ludivine, who lives near Dijon (Côte-d’or), worried to see the masks less and less present in the streets. “ I’m not working at the moment, and Emma (CE1) and Chloe (Middle section) have found their rhythm at home. The big has even finished the program. “

The mother of the family did not want any upset for eight days only (there is no class on Wednesday). Moreover, in his village of 2 000 inhabitants, it is not the only one to have made this decision. “The drop of water, it is the abandonment of the distancing in kindergarten. I do not have confidence in the new health protocol. In us, hospital admissions did not fall. The epidemic is not over. “


Lavrov said about the collapse of the concept of sovereignty of Kosovo :: Policy :: RBC

The concept of the self-proclaimed sovereignty of Kosovo has failed and does not enjoy “unanimous support” neither in the Balkans nor in Europe. This opinion was expressed by Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov and his Serbian counterpart Ivica Dacic in an article for the “Russian newspaper” and the newspaper “Kurir”.

“About half of the States members of the United Nations does not recognize the notorious Kosovo “statehood”, and the number of such countries is growing,” — says the publication.

According to Lavrov and Dacic, “inconsistency” of Kosovo’s independence “clearly highlights” the situation in the Republic, where “internal chaos reigns”, and state-building “turned into fiction”.

The Ministers noted that the situation with Kosovo for more than twenty years constitutes “full stabilization”, but recently “revived” discussions on the situation in the region.

“Again increasing the activity of the United States and the European Union, which seek to close the settlement”, — stated in the article. The settlement must be political and based on previously defined arrangements, said the Ministers. Key among them is the formation of a Community of Serb municipalities in Kosovo (SSMK), endowed with the necessary authority, said Lavrov and Dacic.


Video games. During the confinement, an avatar in Fortnite to the rescue of abused children

Avatar winged, and clothed in blue : it is through this emissary, virtual, met in the heart of “Fortnite “, the popular online game, that more than 350 children and adolescents, abused or delinquent, have been able to discreetly confide in of “true “ adults for the containment.

The association Child blue, who has piloted this new experience so far had been secret, hope it will serve as a springboard to a device for permanent, in order that the video games become a medium for children in danger to give the alert.

For Laura Morin, the director of the association, the challenge is to respond to the “number one challenge “ faced by those who come to the aid of minors abused : “allow the child to talk, and adults to identify that there is a problem “.

Gold, “young people do not use the same media as us adults. We must adapt and find new ways to get in contact with them “continues Ms. Morin.

1 in 200 children and adolescents

To do this, the volunteers of the association have penetrated into the virtual world of Fortnite in the guise of a character referred to as “Child Blue “, and took turns to do it “live “ for a month, all day until 22: 30.

The Mission of this avatar : responding to young players, connected at the same time as him, who wanted to talk to him about their personal problems.

In total, in a month, 1 in 200 children or adolescents, 10 to 17 years, have made contact with the winged figure, a figure “extraordinary “according to Laura Morin.

In the majority of cases, young people have clicked that out of curiosity, but 30 % of them “are committed on personal problems more or less serious “and “some have reported to be in a situation of extreme urgency “says the association, which has in some cases been able to refer them to other specialized structures, such as those fighting against school bullying, for example.

Discretion vis-à-vis parents

In order for the experiment to work, it was necessary that the young players are made aware of the opportunity that was offered to them… but without their parents, potentially maltraitants, are not themselves aware.

The project proponents have not communicated with the media available to the general public, but have appealed to influencers known to the world “gamers “.

“This is the right channel, the right vocabulary to be clearly understood by the children who need it, without arousing the attention of those who abuse them “summarizes Fabrice Plazolles, the communication agency Havas Sports & Entertainment, which led the operation.

Through a partnership with the professional teams of “e-sports “or with influencers with millions of subscribers, messages with the device, and for detailing how to recognize the avatar have been posted on Snapchat and Instagram, as well as on the platform Twitch, which broadcasts live portions of the video game.

A “track encouraging “

Much of the media, where the presence of the parents was unlikely : “given that the children were confined, and had no other means to give the warning, it would have been dramatic that a parent is aware of the device and cut off the access to the console “, notes Mr. Plazolles.

“If you are a victim of any form of violence, adds the account, Epic EnfantBleu on Fortnite to discuss discreetly “, suggested in the messages.

In the end, the operation was able to confirm that the video games are a “track encouraging “ to facilitate the advocacy of abused children, ” observed Mrs. Morin.

But it is now to go further, and think about how to include this track in the long term, she adds.To do this, a working group was set up around the Child’s blue, it will bring together from September of the representatives of the publishers of video games, the judiciary and specialized police officers, as well as the State secretariat for the Protection of children.

“What we hope, is provide one more tool in the arsenal available to the children to call for help. By adopting their point of view “insists the director of the association.

The government flies to the rescue of the aerospace industry

The tour of the aerospace. The government has presented, Tuesday, June 9, in the recovery plan for the sector, weakened by the epidemic of Covid-19. The air traffic to a halt, orders for aircraft have been pushed back “ 80% or 90% “said Bruno Le Maire, the minister of economy and finance. The plan, costed at € 15 billion (including € 7 billion of loans from the beginning of the crisis, Air France), combines the short and the long term.

Arrange the financial support to export

The French aeronautical industry represents 300 000 direct and indirect jobs, of which” a third party could disappear in six months without assistance “according to Bruno Le Maire. To avoid the maximum of layoffs, the airlines will be able to defer for twelve months to the reimbursement of their export credits. This cash gain for the companies is amounted to 1.5 billion euros.

The government has also proposed to the european Commission to bring within the OECD, an easing of the temporary arrangements for the refund of purchases of Airbus by the airlines. They can wait up to eighteen months instead of six before you begin to repay their credit. Activity measurements of partial should also be extended.

The leverage of the military command

Second lever support, the command public. ” The majority of companies in the sector is dual, with two images, both civilian and military. This is a chance “noted Florence Parly, minister for the armed forces. Orders, planned at a later date, have been accelerated to replace the existing equipment. Three aircraft A330 will be acquired and transformed into tanker aircraft for the benefit of the air force ; eight helicopters Caracal will replace the current Puma, whose average age is forty years. In total, the public order is valued at more than € 800 million.

To help consolidate the sector, the government is putting in place two funds. The first is an investment fund with as of this summer of € 500 million : 200 million provided by the State, $ 200 million by the manufacturers Airbus, Dassault, Safran and Thales, and 100 million by a fund manager in the process of being selected through a call for tenders. The latter will be in charge of collecting, on the markets, another 500 million euros. In total, the billion euros of the investment fund, operational since July, must strengthen the equity of SMES and enterprises of intermediate size (ETI) sector.

The second fund, which is funded by the State to the tune of 300 million euros over three years, is a fund of assistance to be used to bridge the delay of the French companies in the automation and digitization compared to their counterparts in German or Italian.

The objectives of greening

As the automotive industry, the aerospace is ordered to turn green. Despite the crisis,” it would be a mistake to lower the costs of research and development, it is now that we need to invest “explained Elizabeth Terminal, minister of the ecological transition, and solidarity. France had 35 000 engineers in the field of aeronautics : high skills that she hopes to keep.

The budget allocated to the Council for civil aeronautics research (Corac) will more than double this year and reach 1.5 billion euros over three years. This aid should allow to speed up the replacement of the A320, currently the commercial aircraft the most sold in the world, at the horizon of 2030. In addition, here about seven years ago, the government expects a prototype of an aircraft ” zero-carbon “, including the finalization would take place in 2035, with ten years ahead of the original schedule. The preferred technology would be the hydrogen.

It is part of the available paths, just like the fuels synthetic “, says Philippe Petitcolin, CEO of Safran, which manufactures the engines of 70 % of the aircraft short-and medium-haul in the world. While welcoming the government measures, the chief executive officer recalled that, ” the the level of uncertainty has never been stronger. In September, we do not know if the aircraft will be sent “.


how Nadezhda Babkina restores health after pneumonia

Nadezhda Babkina on May 9 will certainly perform Victory songs. This time thousands of spectators will not applaud her – we celebrate the main holiday in self-isolation mode. And Nadezhda Georgievna herself is recovering after a serious illness, therefore she saves herself – there will be concerts, but later. But “Victory Day” will certainly sound in the house of the national artist. We tell how Babkina regains her health after being discharged from the hospital.

Recall that Nadezhda Georgievna was hospitalized with pneumonia, for almost a month we were worried about her health. The treatment required the introduction of an artist into a coma, Babkina coped, doctors saved the life of Nadezhda Georgievna – and now she is already at home. The situation was very serious. Nadezhda Babkina told about the course of the disease in Let They Talk, immediately after hospitalization and computed tomography of her lungs, she was transferred to intensive care:

“About 80% of the lungs were affected … Everything covered with film and dragged on: it’s such an infection, it manifests itself very quickly and starts working …” Later, the artist found out that at some point the situation became very serious: “The question was acute at the time the kidneys stopped working. Why? Details did not tell me. Probably it was scary, there were a lot of problems with me … “

Before discharge, CT showed that lung damage, according to the singer, decreased to 40%. Now Nadezhda Georgievna is not in a Moscow apartment, but in her country house in the suburbs. Therefore, she goes to special Lapino hospital for special physiotherapeutic procedures to restore lung function and rehabilitation. At discharge, the artist was prescribed home recovery (for 20 days): pills, injections – the artist tells her colleagues what she can do herself. Doctors ordered Babkin to do breathing exercises.

Nadezhda Georgievna says that the exercises are not easy, they are dizzy after them, but the artist is not lazy: she does it every day, because it’s important for the profession to restore the lungs as soon as possible. “Since we are singing, I have light accordions (squeezed – unclenched),” Babkina communicates with her colleagues and friends over the telephone — her voice is normal.

Nadezhda Babkina walks a lot – she lives in a country house (the singer was taken to the hospital from her Moscow apartment), and she came to rehab for fresh air outside Moscow. The actress is accompanied by a nurse Allochka – now the first assistant to Nadezhda Georgievna. “A beautiful little girl, Allochka, looked after me in the hospital, as though she was young, and hands like sledgehammers — I think all four will fall down. And she dragged me. From the bed to the toilet (I couldn’t walk). And – night is not night, she just lived with me, ”Babkina got used to her nurse. And Allochka went to her house – to help recover.

She goes to physiotherapy with her son, and Assistant Allochka is always nearby at home. Civilian husband Yevgeny Gor also raises spirits – he and his Hope have been 17 years old.

“He protects me, worships!” – the artist praises her Zhenya. There is something to praise – Gore kept the defense of journalists for a month: not a single interview or comment on Babkina’s health until she wrote out. Immediately after Nadezhda’s discharge, Eugene breathed a sigh of relief, and even cut himself off for joy! The precautions for self-isolation in this family are followed very strictly. Now Babkina even before washing her hands washes: he touches his face only with clean hands.

The house has a special lamp that disinfects the air. The device for air disinfection in the rooms of Babkina was presented for an anniversary – even before the illness. Now come in handy! In March, Nadezhda Georgievna celebrated her 70th birthday; she is going to celebrate lavishly in the fall, when they are allowed to hold events. For the anniversary, the singer lost 23 kg in three and a half months: food was delivered to her ready diet. And in the hospital she dropped it again: I didn’t want to eat. Now she eats fully: as she began to recover she suddenly wanted sauerkraut.

Nadezhda Georgievna is not bored at home: the collective of her theater “Russian Song”, like all artists on self-isolation, but Babkina is engaged in current affairs, in touch with her employees. In the hospital, I didn’t communicate with anyone from friends: only with relatives, and when I got better, I watched TV. But now it receives calls and congratulations, we can say that with a second birth. Babkina says that she gave herself the command not to be afraid, to completely trust the doctors as soon as I entered the hospital: “When I looked in my eyes Shapovalenko Tatyana Vladimirov (the chief physician of the Medsi Design Bureau in Otradnoye – approx. Aut.) said that I believe you – my life is in your hands. ”

Recovery will not be quick – this artist understands, does not deny: no one knows yet – what consequences can be after an illness. But now there is more good news: according to the results of the analyzes, the doctors said that the immune system is restored.
