first_imgNew Delhi: Around 12.19 lakh jobs were created in June, lower than 12.88 lakh added in the previous month, according to the latest payroll data from the Employees’ State Insurance Corporation (ESIC). Gross enrolments of new subscribers with the ESIC were 1.49 crore during 2018-19, a report released by National Statistical Office (NSO) stated. The NSO report is based on the payroll data of new subscribers of various social security schemes run by ESIC, retirement fund body EPFO and the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA).

It said that since the number of subscribers are from various sources, there are elements of overlap and the estimates are not additive.last_img read more

Caregiver benefit for parents of ill children misunderstood federal review says

first_imgOTTAWA — An evaluation of a federal benefit to help parents take time off work to care for critically ill children says fewer people have used it than expected because they didn’t know about it or didn’t understand how it worked.Annual applications for the benefit have been well below the 6,000 anticipated when the previous Conservative government introduced it in 2013.The evaluation posted online details months-late applications, call-centre agents who didn’t always understand all facets of the benefit themselves, and rejected applicants who tended to have lower levels of education and earnings.The Liberals morphed the benefit into a new program designed to be easier to apply for and receive.Employment and Social Development Canada, which oversees the program, says there were 4,900 claims for the new benefit between its introduction in December 2017 and December 2018.The department has also worked since November 2017 to improve understanding of the new benefit through social-media posts, online videos and rewriting a federal website.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Diamond retrieved from Chinese man

However the Chinese man had later claimed that he had not swallowed a genuine diamond but a fake diamond. Another man was believed to have been with the Chinese man and there is suspicion that he may had fled with the real diamond.The police had found several fake diamonds with the suspect who was arrested. The Chinese national was arrested and handed over to the Kurunduwatte police after he was seen swallowing the diamond at a stall during the exhibition last week. The diamond swallowed by a Chinese man last week during the Gem and Jewellery exhibition at the BMICH has been retrieved, the police said today.Police spokesman SSP Ajith Rohana said that the diamond has now been sent to the Gem and Jewellery authority to verify if it is a genuine or fake diamond.

Jobseekers return at fastest pace since before recession

U.S. employers notched another solid month of hiring in March by adding 215,000 jobs, driven by large gains in the construction, retail and health care industries. Despite the jump, the Labor Department said Friday, April 1, 2016 that the unemployment rate ticked up to 5 percent from 4.9 percent. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green, File) by Christopher S. Rugaber, The Associated Press Posted Apr 1, 2016 6:44 am MDT Last Updated Apr 1, 2016 at 8:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WASHINGTON – Americans are flooding back into the job market at the fastest pace since before the Great Recession, encouraged by steady hiring and some signs of higher pay.The flow has halted, at least temporarily, one of the economy’s more discouraging trends: the sharp decline in the percentage of people either working or looking for work. That figure fell last year to a four-decade low.The pickup since then suggests that nearly seven years after the recession ended, Americans are finally more confident that they can find jobs.In March, nearly 400,000 people began job hunts, though not all found work. Their searching lifted the unemployment rate to 5 per cent from 4.9 per cent. Employers added 215,000 jobs, the Labor Department said Friday, a solid figure but not enough to keep up with the new job-seekers.Since last September, 2.4 million people have either found jobs or started looking. The proportion of Americans working or looking for work, known as the “participation rate,” has increased to 63 per cent during that time, from 62.4 per cent, a 38-year low.“The rise … over the past six months has been truly astounding, suggesting that the job market is finally pulling discouraged workers off the sidelines,” said James Marple, an economist at TD Bank.Still, the participation rate was 66 per cent before the recession began. The drop has fueled concerns that the recession rendered millions of Americans essentially unemployable, held back by deteriorating skills or a lack of available jobs nearby. The increase in the past few months provides hope that’s not the case.Martin Nyholt, 61, of Apex, North Carolina, recently began looking for work again after retiring from IBM last May. He is looking for a part-time position, but would take a “simple job” that pays $10 to $15 an hour if it is full-time. He wants less pressure than existed in his former project-manager position.“I’ve kind of run out of TV shows that I want to watch,” Nyholt said, outside an employment centre. “Every additional month I go is money that’s going to be coming out of (savings) and that’s a negative there.”Economists estimate that at least half of the decline in the participation rate is a result of ongoing retirements by the vast baby boom generation. That demographic trend could overwhelm the return of younger workers, keeping the participation rate flat or pushing it lower in the coming months.The extra job-seekers also give the Federal Reserve additional flexibility in the timing of future interest rate increases, economists said. If employers have more potential workers to choose from, they won’t be forced to raise wages as quickly, a step that can push up inflation.The Fed raised rates for the first time in nine years in December. Most economists don’t expect Fed policymakers to move again until June.Average hourly wages rose 2.3 per cent in March compared with a year earlier, a faster pace than the first few years after the recession. But that is still about a percentage point below the rate that is typical for a healthy economy.The percentage of Americans without high school degrees who are working or seeking jobs has jumped sharply since last fall. That could be a response to big increases in low-paying jobs in industries such as retail, which added 48,000 jobs in March, and hotels and restaurants, which gained 26,000.Older Americans are also more likely to work or look for work than they were a year ago.Tara Sinclair, chief economist at the online job site Indeed, says that many companies are frustrated that they cannot find the workers they need. So they are trying to keep older workers on board by offering perks such as flexible hours or part-time work.Last month’s healthy hiring comes even as growth has showed signs of slowing. That suggests employers see the tepid growth figures as temporary.Sluggish consumer spending in January and February caused many economists to lower their estimates for growth in the first quarter to 1 per cent or below. That would follow an anemic 1.4 per cent pace at the end of last year.Yet many analysts think the GDP figures will likely be revised higher in the coming months. Consumers may also spend more of their savings from lower gas prices, boosting the economy.Kevin Wilson, CEO of Buzz Franchise Brands, said the growing economy is helping him expand. He plans to add eight more employees to his headquarters staff of 22 by the end of this year.The company operates Mosquito Joe, a pest-control provider, and Pool Scouts, which provides pool-cleaning services. Wilson expects to hire more workers at the existing 113 Mosquito Joe franchises and open 58 new ones. Those steps should create about 450 new jobs.Yet he hasn’t had to offer much higher pay to attract workers. “We get a ton of responses to our job ads,” he said.Sluggish wage growth has been a source of frustration for many workers and has spilled over into widespread demands for a higher minimum wage.California approved a measure this week to lift its minimum to $15 an hour by 2020, more than double the current federal minimum of $7.25. New York lawmakers have also approved a $15 minimum that will be phased in at different times around the state.___Associated Press Writer Martha Waggoner in Raleigh, N.C., contributed to this report.

West Indies ‘A’ lead the three-match series 2-0 following wins in Jamaica at the Trelawny Stadium and Sabina Park respectively.“We’re looking to end it 3-0 so that’s our focus right now,” said Hamilton who scored a century in the second match that the West Indies won by an innings and 17 runs at Sabina Park.Hamilton said being able to win the series was special for him and his teammates.“It means a lot to us.

Irish man in Australia gets jail sentence for drunken attack on a

first_imgA 28-YEAR-OLD Irish man could spend up to a year in an Australian jail after being convicted of a drunken attack on a bouncer outside a Sydney pub.Nine News reports that Diarmaid Dooley pleaded guilty to the charge of causing actual bodily harm to the bouncer at Scruffy Murphy’s pub in November 2013 but insists that he has no memory of the incident.The judge sentenced to Dooley to a minimum of eight months in jail after viewing security footage of the attack which showed the Irish backpacker punching the bouncer in the face and kneeing him in the stomach.Dooley’s lawyer told reporters reporters that his client was “devastated” by the incident and argued that it should be viewed differently to other assaults. “It was not an unprovoked king-hit on an innocent person”, he argued.But Syndey Judge Jane Culver told the court that the sentence must act as a deterrent to prevent the growth of “drunken violence”:This is a crime that involves intoxication and violence on the streets of Sydney. This court needs to send a message to the community that we can not tolerate this sort of drunken violence.Dooley is to appeal the sentence and will appear in court again next month.Read: Big jump in the number of Irish people getting married abroad >Read: Irishman jailed over Perth car crash that killed two Irish backpackers >last_img read more

Doom and Doom 2 use Rage id Tech 5 engine on PS3

first_imgJohn Carmack and his team of engineers at id Software are a clever bunch, and continue to churn out game engines that set the bar for the rest of the industry. But such talent doesn’t just mean solving problems by creating new software, it also means saving time by cutting corners when they can.With the release of Doom 3 BFG Edition on October 19, gamers will get to play a graphically-updated Doom 3, but also Doom and Doom 2 in their original forms. The collection is also being released on the Xbox 360 and PS3 alongside the PC.Releasing Doom and Doom 2 on the PS3 apparently threw up an issue for id. They had to figure out a way to get the network code working for multiplayer. The obvious solution is to rewrite the code for Sony’s hardware, but that’s a lot of time and effort for one or more programmers. id had a better idea.Without realizing it, anyone choosing to play either of those first two Doom games on PS3 will actually be loading the id Tech 5 engine used to power Rage. Both games haven’t received a graphical update like Doom 3, but the network code in id Tech 5 is a perfect solution for the PS3. So id stripped everything out of the engine except networking and ran Doom and Doom 2 on top of it.Tim Willits, id Software’s Creative Director, describes it as taking out all the Rage bits. What you end up with is a couple of classic games that look just like the originals, but with a solid, up-to-date game engine and networking code running in the background.This isn’t the first time Rage and Doom have been seen used together. You may remember id included a number of easter eggs in Rage including areas from Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, and Quake.Read more at Joystiqlast_img read more

Mark Bouris Shop around

first_imgMark Bouris is the Executive Chairman of Yellow Brick Road. Email Mark on mark.neos@ybr.com.au with any queries you may have or check www.ybr.com.au for your nearest branch Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram So another Reserve Bank meeting goes by and this time there’s been no rise in official rates. That was the good news from this week and many readers will breathe easy. However, whilst the RBA governor Glenn Stevens has shown restraint in leaving the rate at 4.5 per cent – his comments show that it could have fallen either way. Many economists believe Stevens is prepared to wait until the September CPI figure is released on October 15. The CPI tells us where inflation is heading, and his response will be felt in November. Right now, with inflation edging up and good economic growth, there’s a greater than fifty per cent chance that we’ll see a rate rise in November. This won’t seem right to some readers: over the course of the Global Financial Crisis we’ve had multiple rate rises, and it looks like we have more to come. Which suggests the RBA is keeping a lid on economic growth. Yet when I travel around Australia, and talk to householders and small business owners (who’ve all got mortgages to pay), I’m not hearing stories of an overheated economy that needs to be cooled. The resources boom in the desert has not been felt in the heartland. Whether it’s a business owner in Rockdale or a home owner in Oakleigh, I’m hearing how hard things are. It’s as if the GFC has been dealt with on a national and banking level, but its effects are still strong on the high street. However, if I’m right about rates increasing in November, that provides only one month of respite. What can you do? Take control of your finances. And the best way to initiative that process is to start shopping around. Take a close look at your mortgage, the rate and the product: is it what you want? Start with your own lender: can they give you a better rate? Do they have a product that suits you more? You may not want to pay for the full service mortgage package when you don’t use the linked credit card or the draw-down. If your current lender isn’t helpful, then ask around. There’s always alternatives, even right under your nose. For instance, industry credit unions or building societies or non-bank lenders, just like Yellow Brick Road. Also use sites like Cannex or InfoChoice, but whatever you do, get yourself active and informed. This is especially the case for business owners who usually have their overdrafts and business loans linked to their mortgages. Now is the time to fine-tune these arrangements – talk to a professional, like a Yellow Brick Road Wealth Manager if you don’t understand everything. Just remember: the Reserve Bank meets again on November 3, Melbourne Cup day. You have four weeks to prepare, and to ensure that your only gamble is on the horses.last_img read more

AGDC Seeks Loan From AIDEA

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Gasline Development Corporation has reportedly applied for a loan from the Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority (AIDEA) to fund work on the $43 billion LNG project. Both AIDEA and AGDC, are public entities under the Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development and their financials are public information. However, no one from either corporation will go on record with a definitive “yes” or a “no.” Request for comment sent to an AGDC spokesperson and was not returned by the time of deadline. Multiple sources within the state have confirmed that AGDC has applied for the loan. On the agenda for the AIDEA board of Directors meeting on May 31, listed an “LNG loan” as one of the topics. The AGDC took over control of the AK LNG project in January of 2017 with $106 million remaining from prior gasline appropriations and expects to have $52.5 million at the start of the next fiscal year that begins on July 1.last_img read more

Teach toddlers emotions to help them behave better

first_imgHelping your toddler understand and express emotions may reduce behavioural problems later on, says a new study.“Our findings offer promise for a practical, cost-effective parenting strategy to support at-risk toddlers’ social and emotional development and reduce behavioural problems,” said lead investigator of the study Holly Brophy-Herb, professor at Michigan State University in the US.The research, part of a larger study funded by a grant from the US Department of Health and Human Services, involved 89 toddlers (ages 18 months to about two years) from low-income families.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Mothers were asked to look at a wordless picture book with their toddlers. The book included many emotional undertones as illustrations depicted a girl who lost and found a pet.Brophy-Herb and her fellow researchers focused on mothers’ “emotion bridging” with the child. That involves mothers not only labelling the emotion (for example, sad) but also putting it into context and tying it back to the child’s life.During a follow-up visit with the families, about seven months later, the researchers found fewer behavioural problems in the higher-risk children. This might be because emotion bridging acts as a tool through which toddlers can begin to learn about their emotions and gradually learn simple words to express emotions, needs and wishes, instead of acting out physically, Brophy-Herb said.The findings appeared in the Journal of Developmental and Behavioural Pediatrics.last_img read more

Care for a few stress busters

first_imgStress when clubbed with obsessive compulsive disorder makes one unmanageable and puts one on the border line of personality disorder. Initially the performance of a person was the only key factor that was considered but now, performance is clubbed with competition, excellence, organisation, technology, education, administration and execution. The stress and pressure of performance in a person’s daily life thus acquired has given rise to major health issues today.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’As Anuja Kapur, Criminal Psychologist and Socialist, says: “The leadership quality is no more to be seen. Becoming a boss in every field and trying to do things alone without taking help from teammates has proven to be a major disaster not only in personal life but also in the professional front.” She explains: “Stress is also felt in educational sector; research students have had massive anxiety attacks due to overwhelming stress in their life. Students are not able to cope up with the pressure which they face daily in schools, colleges and at home. Students have started facing many health issues- such as major depressive disorders, suicidal tendencies, bi-polar disorders- which have hampered their performances and forced them to remain within their own respective shells.”  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixStudents are not able to open up their feelings with parents, teachers or tutors. They remain in their own world and the competition around them kills their performance. Even if they want to explore, the busy world cannot provide quality time to them.Kapur advices, “The ability to deal with stress can be the difference between success and failure at work. Stress is not always bad, if in comfort zone of the person it can help the individual to meet new challenges at the work place. It keeps us on the toes to prevent accidents or costly mistakes at work. But in today’s hectic world with long tiring hours, tight deadlines and increasing demands, one is left worried, uncertain and overwhelmed by the stress.  “When stress exceeds our comfort zone area it stops being helpful and starts causing major damages to our mind and body, but no matter what we do for a living, how stressful our job is, there are plenty of things that can reduced overall stress level and help us regain control on the work.”Symptoms of stress at workWhen we are overwhelmed by the work, we lose confidence, become angry, irritable or withdrawn. Other signs and symptoms include:  Loss of interest in work  Problems sleeping  Fatigue Muscle tension or headaches  Stomach problems  Social withdrawal Causes of excessive stress in life  Eye hawk on team’s performance every time creates anxiety  Fear of being laid off  Fear of being super succeeded by a competent colleague  Pressure to perform to meet rising expectations but without job satisfaction  Politics and corruption have lowered the humanitarian ground which again brings stress and a feeling of hopelessness  Pressure at work is a major cause for the occurrence of domestic violence, broken homes incompetency in relationships and parentingStress coping tipsInitiate positive relationships: Sharing our thoughts and feelings with another person can help reduce stress. The other person does not have to be a doctor or a counsellor, just needs to be a good listener. Developing friendships with co workers can also help in reducing stress Don’t stop moving: Staying at one place also leads to boredom and loss of interest. Bringing change in our environment brings change in us. When under stress take a quick break and move away from the stressful situation. It will help us, like eating small and frequent meals maintains the level of blood sugar, keeping us energetic, helping us avoid mood swingsSleep well: Sleep is like a morphine induced in the system which helps us relax rejuvenate and come back with a stronger, energetic approach to the same old problemOrganise and prioritise your work: Create a balanced schedule between work and family life. Try to be punctual, leave early for work. Planning your day will help you to reorganise the scattered and unfinished work leading to deadlinesPlan small approachable goals: Instead of having a goal which is unapproachable, inaccessible, unmanageable we should plan to have small approachable goals. This helps in retaining confidence and keeps us motivated.Take Help: If you are feeling stressful, degenerated, nervous, impatient, anxious, it’s better to take help from a counsellor to understand your symptoms and to cope with them.last_img read more

(Eds.).December 29, 2009 – Imaging is at the heart of diagnostic procedures and is the focus of the “ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Imaging”, which will be released in early 2010. The book accumulates the expertise of European cardiovascular imagers and is written with a patient rather than technology-based approach, helping clinicians to explain the condition to the patient, with the aid of imaging. The book is divided into sections that treat specific themes involving theory and practice of cardiac imaging and its clinical use in all major cardiovascular diseases from coronary heart disease to cardiomyopathies. Professor J. L. Zamorano Gomez, president of the European Association of Echocardiography, a registered branch of the ESC, Spain, and editor-in-chief of the book, highlights the importance of putting the patient at the center of care. “The key question is always how these modalities can help in our diagnosis. In the near future, CV Imaging will be multidisciplinary,” he said. The writers are not only targeting cardiologists but physicians interested in CV Imaging. The book is written by European specialists, almost all of whom are from the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). The ESC became aware of the need for a book combining the accumulated expertise of European cardiovascular imagers. While the book focuses on four modalities, echocardiography, nuclear imaging, cardiac computed tomography (CT) and cardiac magnetic resonance (MR), specific information tragets the disease and then identifies which modality is appropriate. This book describes a new subspeciality that we will all need in the future: the imaging doctor, who can communicate with clinicians and help them resolve diagnostic dilemmas by choosing the correct technique and interpreting images using a patient-based approach.

Tourism all that jazz for New Orleans postKatrina

first_imgTourism in New Orleans – the birthplace of jazz – is starting to swing like it did before Hurricane Katrina silenced the Louisiana city five years ago. Since then, the tourism sector has led the city’s economic recovery, said economic development officials in a Deseret News report.New Orleans’ long-term goal is to have a diversified economy, but the city is not there yet, president of the New Orleans Metropolitan Convention and Visitors Bureau, Stephen Perry said.”In the short term and in the mid-term, it was clear the culture and tourist industries would be the big difference in getting back on our feet.”It not only put a lot of middle class people in the city back to work, it had a tremendous impact on the tax revenue.”Mr Perry estimated that tourism had regained about 82 per cent of its pre-Katrina momentum, when it was a US$5 billion industry. The industry contributes close to 30 per cent of the city’s operating budget through hotel occupancy taxes and sales taxes.New Orleans received 7.5 million visitors in 2009, compared to a typical pre-storm year of 8.5 million, according to Mr Perry’s agency. This translated to hotel occupancy for January through May being up 13.1 per cent from last year, according to Jan Freitag of Smith Travel Research.The biggest challenge for the city is overcoming negative perceptions that have been perpetuated by videos of the 2005 flooding and the recent BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.”People thought we were still flooded long after the hurricane, long after the flood waters were gone,” Perry said.”We were having the best six months we have had since Katrina, and then the oil spill came along … and now we’re battling an image problem again.” Royal Street, New Orleans. The city’s recovery following Hurricane Katrina has been led by tourism. Source = e-Travel Blackboard: C. Clast_img read more

Johnny Hallyday, France’s biggest rock star for more than half a century and an icon who packed sports stadiums and all but lit up the Eiffel Tower with his pumping pelvis and high-voltage tunes, has died. He was 74. (AP Photo/Christophe Ena) center_img PARIS – When French TV crews descended on a Los Angeles hospital in 2009, American reporters didn’t get it. Johnny Hallyday was hospitalized. Who’s he? Only a rock music idol and legend, a man France’s president would eulogize Wednesday as “a French hero.”Hallyday, known simply as Johnny, made generations of fans in his native France squeal, jump and jive with his dazzling dress, pumping pelvis and tunes by American artists belted out in French. His death at age 74 was a loss even for younger people who might have found his Elvis Presley-inspired act passe.But the beloved rocker’s stardom mostly remained confined to France. Media outlets in the U.S. reported Wednesday on the “Johnny” phenomenon that endured for more than half a century.French President Emmanuel Macron a fan and offstage acquaintance of Hallyday’s, offered a lyrical on-the-spot tribute while visiting Algiers for talks on fighting terrorism.“We had built deep within ourselves the conviction that he was invincible. He is among these men who should have died 100 times because of their lifestyle, because of their overindulgence, because of their battles,” Macron, 39, said “But he never fell.”Hallyday had been treated for lung cancer and repeated health scares in the years before he died, but performed as recently as the summer.Macron wasn’t the only French politician to talk Johnny while on state business. Nicolas Sarkozy called the Hallyday family during a European Union Summit in 2009 to get updates on the singer’s condition — at the time an infected herniated disk.Why was Johnny Hallyday so loved? Was it his rugged good looks and scratchy voice? Or was it the charisma that singer Line Renaud, who helped launch his career and is known as his “godmother,” said “there’s no school for.”Fans seemed to viscerally grasp the tender side hidden under the image of a singer whose stage presence wasn’t particularly French. With sparkly suits, a large cross on his bare chest and hi legs spread, he looked like an act out of Las Vegas or Hollywood.“I know that happiness doesn’t exist. There is but pain and solitude,” he said in an extensive interview with the newspaper Le Monde in 1998. “I talk about it often because I can only speak of what I know. When I say talk, it means sing.”Hallyday has said he never stopped grieving his absent father, a Belgian who disappeared from his life when his parents divorced before he was 1 year old. He only occasionally sang “A Propos de Mon Pere” (Concerning My Father), which appeared on his 1974 album and he said was about his dad.Born in Paris on June 15, 1943, Hallyday stopped using his given name, Jean-Philippe Smet, when he was 16 years old and had followed his father’s sisters to London. There, he met Lee Ketchman, an American singer who gave him his first electric guitar.Hallyday covered American songs in French, from “Johnny B. Goode” to “Black Is Black” and “Roll Over Beethoven.” He sang the “The House of the Rising Sun” in English — the melody of which was also used for one of his most famous songs, the 1964 “Le Penitencier.”“If the artistic quality of his work is under debate, his ability to embody the contradictions of French society is obvious,” sociologist Jean-Louis Fabiani told the newspaper Le Monde. “Johnny is a veritable cultural sponge, fed on the spirit of the times and its uncertainties.”Hallyday’s widow, Laeticia Hallyday, said in a statement announcing his death that his battle with cancer had given “everyone extraordinary life lessons.”“The heart beat so strongly in this body of a rocker who lived a life without concession for the stage, for his public, for those who adored and loved him,” her statement, transmitted overnight to the French national news agency AFP, said. “My man is no more.”But he never stopped being vulnerable.“All my life, I was obsessed with the absence of my father,” Hallyday told the Journal du Dimanche weekly newspaper in 2014. He recalled attending his father’s funeral in Brussels in 1989.“That day I was the only one there. Not a woman, not a friend. Absolute solitude in death. I wouldn’t like to end like that,” he said.Johnny didn’t.One fan, Yves Buisson, his arms bearing Johnny tattoos, stood outside Hallyday’s gated home west of Paris, calling the rocker “our God.”Lawmakers in the French National Assembly stood briefly and applauded the star, and Prime Minister Edouard Philippe gave an informal tribute.The fan occupying the presidential Elysee Palace made it clear Hallyday hadn’t died alone.“I know that this morning there are many French people who probably feel more lonely,” Macron said. “So we’ll comfort each other by thinking about him.”___Samuel Petrequin in Paris and Nicolas Garriga in Marnes-La-Coquette contributed to this report.last_img read more
