It’s just a matter of hours. Barring an improbable turnaround, Gérard Lopez will become the new owner of the Girondins de Bordeaux on Friday afternoon. This Wednesday, the teams of the Spanish-Luxembourg businessman took the last important step towards the acquisition of the club before the Bordeaux Commercial Court since the Navy and White had been placed under the protection of the latter after the disengagement. of King Street, the American investment fund.

By Thursday evening, the body should give a favorable opinion, like the DNCG, to the recovery plan of the former president and owner of the LOSC after a hearing which went “very well” according to a person close to the file. Then, the big maneuvers can finally begin for Gérard Lopez. Be it behind the scenes or in the field. Moreover, he will arrive this Thursday in Bordeaux with these teams. The closing, that is to say the transfer of securities, will take place from Thursday evening to Friday afternoon from the Château du Haillan. A press conference will be held at the end of the day. Members of the Scapular Club, which brings together more than 250 local entrepreneurs and whose form of financial participation in the buyout of the Girondins is not yet known, will also participate in this day.

Longuépée leaves with his check, Martin still a hypothesis

In the meantime, Frédéric Longuépée will have left his position as CEO of Marine et Blanc. After months of conflict with the Ultramarines, the largest group of Bordeaux supporters, he will return his apron this Thursday during a board meeting scheduled for mid-afternoon. But the former gymnast will not leave empty-handed. As revealed 20 Minutes a few weeks ago, the new management will sign him a check for 500,000 euros in severance pay. The club will also have to pay the two million advice fees of the former CEO since the beginning of April. A fine slate for Girondins in great financial difficulty. For the moment, no other departure is planned and the restructuring plan of the club should arrive only in a second step in the fall. Gérard Lopez does not want to arrive at all with his big hooves.

So there won’t be a lot of changes in the organization chart at this time. The businessman only arrives with a new technical director, Admar Lopes. The Portuguese will also put his bags in Gironde this Thursday. For the position of general manager, Thomas Jacquemier currently in office and who has worked in recent weeks with the new owner’s teams will initially ensure the transition. Subsequently, he could be replaced by Stéphane Martin. If the former president of the Girondins has no news for the moment, there remains a hypothesis for Gérard Lopez to provide local support for the project. Stéphane Martin is also very popular with Bordeaux supporters and known to be flexible and competent.

The executioner of France on the bench?

Another man should quickly leave the Girondins with a check. This is Jean-Louis Gasset. Even if Gérard Lopez has enormous respect for the trainer and the man, and his entourage repeats all the time that “nothing has been done at this stage”, the current trainer of the Marines et Blanc will leave the ship : “It is very very unlikely that he will remain in post” advanced last weekend a close to the file to 20 Minutes. Under contract until June 2022, the former assistant of Laurent Blanc should leave a check for 1.1 million euros. The new management will have to add a few thousand euros for the rest of the staff.

Who will replace him ? This is the big question of the moment. As often in this kind of situation, rumors and other speculations are rife. But according to information from 20 Minutes, Vladimir Petkovic is in the sights of the Lopez-Lopes duo. The name of the current Switzerland coach is at the top of the pile, just above that of Joao Sacramento, José Mourinho’s assistant at AS Roma. Those of David Guion and Lucien Favre are also part of a short-list as indicated
The Team. “Vlado” was one of the heroes of the Nati during the victory in the round of 16 of the Euro a few weeks ago against France (3-3, 5 tab to 4). Today he has a huge rating on the market after having repositioned the Swiss selection on the European football chessboard since 2014. With him, Switzerland, it is three consecutive qualifiers to major tournaments, a participation in the “Final Four Of the 2019 Nations League and an average of 1.81 points per game. No one has done better before him.

The 57-year-old Bosnian, naturalized Swiss, also has the advantage of speaking eight languages ??including French (Croatian, Bosnian, English, Spanish, German, Russian and Italian). For the record, Gérard Lopez only talks about seven. There remains one difficulty in this file, and it is sizeable, Vladimir Petkovic is under contract with the Swiss selection until the end of 2021 (automatic extension until 2022 s’ he had to qualify the Nati for the World Cup). He must therefore find an agreement with his leaders before anything else if he really wants to join the Girondins. Discussions are ongoing between all parties.

KOTTAYAM: Only a journey to the outer space has been eluding Santhosh George Kulangara so far. That too will be a reality soon for the 49-year-old who has travelled to 130 countries and has documented his experiences for Malayalis across the world.
He is set to become India?s first space tourist, having booked his seat back in 2007 in one of the proposed paid commercial space flights to be launched by Richard Branson?s Virgin Galactic. The globetrotter is really pumped up about his journey following the space trips made by Branson earlier this month and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos on Tuesday.
?Branson?s trip indicates that the stage is set for the launch of commercial flights for tourists like me,? says Santhosh who figures that space is the next big thing for humans.
?People don?t know whether earth will be a safe place to reside in another 100 years. The climatic changes and pandemics are just indications of things to come. So, colonization will start in other planets soon,? he says, adding that companies will be racing against each other in space exploration, and that he is hoping to hop on a space flight by the year-end or next year-beginning.

Santhosh with Richard Branson

Santhosh had booked his seat for $2.5 lakh at a time when people knew little about the project. ?Commercial space flights were just a distant hope at that time. But I have been waiting since then,? he says.
Santhosh has visited Virgin Galactic?s spaceports at Mojave desert in the US and in New Mexico for flight training: Zero gravity, G-tolerance, etc. The expenses for the trainings were additional.
Santhosh has been receiving updates about the project on a weekly basis. When asked whether he will catch the first commercial flight, he said he is not sure about it.
?Only four people can travel in one flight. Each batch will be decided based on various criteria. As of now, I know that I will be in one of the early flights to the space and the first Indian to do so,? he said.
Santhosh had begun his solo journeys across the globe with a video camera in 1997. The informative documentaries he made about his foreign trips have made him immensely popular and a familiar TV face.
He plans to carry a camera along with him to space as well. ?I never travel without a camera. More than me seeing things, I want viewers to see, learn and experience from my trips,? he says.
He said he will beam across his preparations for the voyage for viewers to see. ?None of the Indians or Keralites have gone through such an experience. Showing it to them is what thrills me,? he says.
?Though there are around six cameras inside the spacecraft I will have a video camera with me to capture the moments which the inbuilt cameras may miss. I had sought permission for it at the time of booking my ticket. For them it was interesting as I was becoming a space tourist representing around 130 crores of people. They knew my camera will be opening the outer space before a huge population,? he says.
Santhosh owns a publishing house named Labour India and an exploration channel Safari TV based out of his native town Marangattupally in Kottayam.

The legend generated around the legendary David Lynch prevents many from imagining that at the beginning of his career he directed a commissioned biopic. The elephant Man could have meant failure like Dune, his other commissioned film, but over the years it has remained one of Lynch’s most sensitive and unique works.

The peculiar premiere of Eraserhead it put David Lynch in the spotlight of some of Hollywood’s biggest production companies eager to find new authors. Lynch, the strange genius behind that unclassifiable oddity, managed to take over the direction of two commissioned works that were day and night for his career. The elephant Man, the first of the tapes commissioned, won the approval of the Academy and critics, while Dune it was dismembered by the press, which classified it as one of the greatest failures in the history of cinema.

The elephant Man narrates the relationship between Dr. Frederick Treves and the patient John Merrick, whose deformities earned him the name “the elephant man.” We discover at the same time that Treves, played by Anthony Hopkins, the striking appearance of Merrick, played by John Hurt. We also see their first conversations and how Merrick goes from being an outcast to a respected celebrity.

SEE THE ELEPHANT MAN IN FILMIN

What is most striking about The elephant Man It is the sensitivity that it gives off. The story is told with an affection that makes us quickly love both protagonists. On the other hand, we openly despise anyone who stands in the way of the happiness of both. Despite being portrayed in a dark and gloomy black and white, The elephant Man exudes kindness and confidence. The feelings it provokes are diametrically antithetical to its visual appearance. It’s like the character of John Merrick himself.

Impossible not to comment on the performances of both protagonists. Hopkins embodies the courage and unwavering insight of Dr. Treves. For his part, Hurt gives body and soul to give life to a man abused by a cruel and ruthless society. A remarkable leading duo for characters that deserved outstanding performances.

THE CHICAGO 7 JUDGMENT (2020): MALLET HIT

Eraserhead he had labeled Lynch a creepy author. Perhaps that is why it is more shocking that he managed to create such a sensitive work. It is true that after her there would not be films so pleasant to see, but The elephant Man it set a precedent in Lynch’s career that few expected. The Lynch minus Lynch is still a unique genius.

The elephant Man narrates the relationship between Dr. Frederick Treves and the patient John Merrick, whose deformities earned him the name “the elephant man.” We discover at the same time that Treves, played by Anthony Hopkins, the striking appearance of Merrick, played by John Hurt. We also see their first conversations and how Merrick goes from being an outcast to a respected celebrity.

SEE THE ELEPHANT MAN IN FILMIN

What is most striking about The elephant Man It is the sensitivity that it gives off. The story is told with an affection that makes us quickly love both protagonists. On the other hand, we openly despise anyone who stands in the way of the happiness of both. Despite being portrayed in a dark and gloomy black and white, The elephant Man exudes kindness and confidence. The feelings it provokes are diametrically antithetical to its visual appearance. It’s like the character of John Merrick himself.

Impossible not to comment on the performances of both protagonists. Hopkins embodies the courage and unwavering insight of Dr. Treves. For his part, Hurt gives body and soul to give life to a man abused by a cruel and ruthless society. A remarkable leading duo for characters that deserved outstanding performances.

THE CHICAGO 7 JUDGMENT (2020): MALLET HIT

Eraserhead he had labeled Lynch a creepy author. Perhaps that is why it is more shocking that he managed to create such a sensitive work. It is true that after her there would not be films so pleasant to see, but The elephant Man it set a precedent in Lynch’s career that few expected. The Lynch minus Lynch is still a unique genius.

After the flood disaster, Annalena Baerbock wants to do climate protection ?now more than ever?. The ?climate jerk? from Söder does not go down well with the Green Chancellor candidate.

Frankfurt – The Chancellor candidate of the Greens, Annalena Baerbock, has to deal with numerous topics these days. Climate change, the flood disaster in North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate, the polls of your party – and the plagiarism problem is still in the room. On Wednesday evening (July 21, 2021), Baerbock answered the most important questions in an interview with the Frankfurter Rundschau.

Green Chancellor candidate Annalena Baerbock regrets inaccuracies in her book

?We are facing a directional decision in our country,? said Baerbock. She wants to create a new departure for Germany and talk about the “future issues”. “That’s why I (…) really annoyed myself about the mistakes I made, also with regard to the candidacy for chancellor.” She did not pay enough attention to inaccuracies in her résumé and her book. The lack of source references in her book annoyed her “retrospectively correctly”. She will not make these mistakes a second time.

Election campaigns always go “up and down,” said Baerbock. Therefore, she looks calmly at the crashed polls. ?The same is the election campaign,? but now it’s back to the ?big questions?, such as the exit from coal energy. She does not want to ?run off the field? – that finally clarifies the question of whether the co-chairman Robert Habeck should take over from her.

Annalena Baerbock in the FR forum: Green polls are stabilizing

According to the latest polls, things are going better again for the Greens after a decline in the polls. According to the current ?RTL / ntv trend barometer?, the CDU / CSU has lost two points and is 28 percent. As in the previous week, the Greens achieved 19 percent. The strongest majority in favor of forming a government would currently be a so-called Germany coalition made up of CDU / CSU, SPD and FDP. But a ?traffic light? coalition of the Greens, SPD and FDP would also be possible again. For a green-red-red alliance, on the other hand, it would not be enough to form a government.

Among the 18 to 29 year olds, the Greens are by far the strongest party. Accordingly, the 18 to 29-year-olds would currently decide in a federal election as follows: Green 36 percent, FDP 17 percent, CDU / CSU 16 percent, SPD ten percent, Left six percent, AfD four percent and others eleven percent.

?We haven’t done enough in the past,? said Annalena Baerbock, referring to the extreme storm

With a view to the current flood disaster, Baerbock said that it was not the first time that Germany had to deal with extreme weather conditions. In the disaster regions, she made a conscious decision to appear without the press. ?We haven’t done enough in the past,? said the 40-year-old politician. In view of this, her motto is now “now more than ever”, just blaming others is the wrong way to go. She does ?climate protection, because I want my children (…) to be able to go out in the summer too. And that they don’t have to stay inside because it’s so hot that they worry that they won’t be outside. “

Baerbock criticized the climate policy of the Union – especially the CSU. “Climate protection does not just fall from the sky, it has to be done.” She does not consider the announced “climate pull” by Markus Söder to be credible. “That is why I want the next federal government (…) to decide on an immediate climate protection program.” In all federal states, wind turbines should therefore be built on two percent of the land area.

“We need radical measures for today,” said the Green Chancellor candidate with regard to climate neutrality. Years like 2030, 2035 or 2040, on the other hand, are not expedient. (Tim Vincent Dicke)

Crisis of nerves between the National Assembly and the executive on the health crisis management bill. Nearly 900 amendments still had to be examined by the deputies, Thursday, July 22, after a first session in hemicycle until midnight Wednesday, under fire from criticism from the opposition. The text declines the health restriction measures announced, Monday, July 12, by Emmanuel Macron and aims to push the French towards vaccination, in particular by extending the health pass to certain leisure activities and daily life.

The government had theoretically left only four days in Parliament to debate and vote on this ninth piece of legislation relating to the state of health emergency. From the opening of the meeting at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, the atmosphere became tense, opposition groups from both left and right denouncing the conditions “Ubuesque” in which the parliamentary debate was taking place. “When, at 4 o’clock [du matin], we vote on amendments that will have consequences for millions of French people, the quality of the debate is in question! ” vituperated the deputy (La France insoumise) from the North, Ugo Bernalicis, in reference to the twelve hours of examination of the text spent the day before in committee to examine more than 600 amendments. “It is the health emergency that requires this text to be examined urgently, retorted the president of the law commission, Yäel Braun-Pivet (The Republic on the move, LRM). SIn my opinion, the parliamentary work we do is of high quality. “

Protesters in front of the Assembly

A l?offensive, Socialists in favor of compulsory vaccination have tabled a motion for the prior rejection of the text. This has been widely rejected but no less discussed. At the same time, several anti-health pass and anti-vaccine mobilizations brought together a few hundred people in Paris and Toulouse. The National Assembly was, for its part, subject to an important security system, demonstrators having presented themselves in its vicinity. A few hours before the meeting, Prime Minister Jean Castex tried to clarify the government’s intentions. Guest of TF1’s 1pm newscast, the tenant of Matignon announced that the managers of establishments receiving the public (ERP) will have to control the sanitary passes but will not be able to proceed to the “Identity verification” of the person presenting it, this prerogative being reserved for the police. Mr. Castex also added that there would be no health pass in schools and that vaccinated people will no longer have to isolate themselves if they are contact cases.

After a scene of looting in the Bara shopping center in Soweto, southwest of Johannesburg, July 15, 2021

The riots and looting that bloodied South Africa have left 276 dead, the government announced on Wednesday (July 21), revising upwards a previous death toll of 215.

?Since the unrest broke out, 234 related deaths have been recorded in Kwazulu-Natal [est] nowadays “Presidential Minister Khumbudzo Ntshavheni said in a statement, reporting 42 deaths in Gauteng province, which includes the country’s two main cities, Johannesburg and Pretoria, the capital.

The police opened 168 murder investigations. Some of the deaths are due to jostling, falling objects and building fires.

“Mop-up operations”

The unrest erupted in Kwazulu-Natal on July 9, initially taking the form of riots following the incarceration of former President Jacob Zuma for contempt of justice. They then spread, against a background of endemic unemployment and new restrictions against the Covid-19, reaching Johannesburg, to calm down at the beginning of the week.

The “Stability” returned to the two affected provinces, assured the minister, specifying that the police were carrying out “Sweeping operations to prevent any opportunistic action”. Six people, including a former public radio presenter, were arrested and prosecuted for inciting violence. Thousands more have been arrested for looting.

Economically, the government estimates that the violence will cost the economy 50 billion rand, or $ 3.4 billion, with the two affected regions accounting for half of the national GDP (gross domestic product).

A suite of International Space Station scientific experiments soon journey back to Earth aboard the 22nd SpaceX commercial resupply services mission for NASA. Scientists on the ground look forward to having their experiments back within hours, an advantage that could provide better results. Dragon undocks from the space station July 7.

The combination of a spacecraft redesign allowing for faster unloading of research and the splashdown location near NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida makes it possible to return time-sensitive experiments to scientists much faster. In addition, Kennedy’s Space Station Processing Facility is home to world-class laboratories offering tools and workspace to collect data and analyze samples. Scientists can look at experiments immediately, before gravity has a chance to fully take effect, and follow up with more in-depth analysis at their home labs.

“Being able to run ground controls and process flight samples at the same place using the same hardware cuts down on the variability,” says Nathaniel Szewczyk, a researcher at Ohio University and a principal investigator for one of the returning investigations, MME-2.

That consistency is key, notes Luciana Rinaudi Marron, a co-investigator at Colgate-Palmolive for the Oral Biofilms in Space study. “Running analyses on all the samples at the same time eliminates a lot of variability of having different people prepping and analyzing samples at different places. It really helps eliminate sources of error.”

Keeping things cool

Lyophilization-2 examines how gravity affects freeze-dried materials. Formulating pharmaceuticals using lyophilization, or freeze-drying, improves their stability and shelf life and could enable long-term storage of medications and other resources on future long-duration space missions. On Earth, the process leads to formation of layers with structural differences, and this investigation looks at whether gravity is the cause.

These materials will be frozen on the space station and brought down frozen. According to principal investigator Jeremy Hinds of Eli Lilly and Company, timing in this process is critical. “I need to receive them in that frozen state. If they melt, all the information captured in the freezing process is gone. Extended time allows anything like heat or humidity to change the physical state of the material. We want the best outcome we can get from this experiment, and timing is a critical piece.”

Results ultimately may lead to improved freeze-drying processes for the pharmaceutical and other industries. “It is important to do the freeze-drying technique off of Earth,” Hinds adds. “If we find that conducting the process in space gives us a performance benefit, for example, that could be key to a future drug.”

Studying worms to improve health

MME-2 tests whether a series of drugs to improve cell energy and muscle efficiency can improve overall health in space and the role of a specific molecule in the changes in human health observed during spaceflight. The ESA (European Space Agency) investigation uses C. elegans worms and expands on previous experiments that used this model organism to study genetic changes in space. Many health changes seen in space resemble those experienced with aging on the ground, and these drugs also could lead to new therapeutic targets to study on Earth.

Oral Biofilms in Space studies how gravity affects the structure, composition, and activity of oral bacteria in the presence of common oral care agents. Findings could support development of treatments to fight oral diseases such as cavities, gingivitis, and periodontitis and provide insight into how microgravity affects the microbiome of other surfaces in the body. Maintaining oral health is key on future long-duration space missions to the Moon or Mars, and the project could lead to treatments for oral diseases on Earth.

“We are looking at the molecular mechanism of disease and how our oral care products are able to intervene. Any molecular work is time sensitive, because you are looking at metabolites and nucleic acids and they degrade over time. So, the quicker we get them, the less degradation occurs,” says co-investigator Harsh Trivedi.

Quick turnaround also allows investigators to modify an experiment, learning from the first round to plan for the next, adds co-investigator Carlo Daep. “We are glad to get the samples back from the same craft that took them up. It will be exciting to see what turns up.”

Findings could support development of treatments to fight oral diseases such as cavities, gingivitis, and periodontitis and provide insight into how microgravity affects the microbiome of other surfaces in the body. Maintaining oral health is key on future long-duration space missions to the Moon or Mars, and the project could lead to treatments for oral diseases on Earth.

“We are looking at the molecular mechanism of disease and how our oral care products are able to intervene. Any molecular work is time sensitive, because you are looking at metabolites and nucleic acids and they degrade over time. So, the quicker we get them, the less degradation occurs,” says co-investigator Harsh Trivedi.

Quick turnaround also allows investigators to modify an experiment, learning from the first round to plan for the next, adds co-investigator Carlo Daep. “We are glad to get the samples back from the same craft that took them up. It will be exciting to see what turns up.”

Before being featured on WWE as Franky Monet was known to everyone as Taya Valkyrie and managed to make a name for herself in different companies before earning the call that changed her life. He started training with Lance Storm in 2010 and since then she has not stopped conquering quadrilaterals throughout much of the world already in IMPACT (where she was champion Knockout for a total of 377 days), Lucha Underground, Major League Wrestling, The Crash o PCW Ultra, among others.

Recently, he gave an interview to Denise Salcedo from The Sporter in which he reviews all the details of his signing with WWE and his debut on April 13 interrupting the NXT Champion Raquel González, in addition to what her new life in Florida is like.

Franky Monet last night on NXT

? I thought it was all a joke

«At first I was speechless because I thought that it couldn’t be happening to me. I thought someone was playing a prank on me. I always put myself in the worst case scenario and learned not to get excited right away. I wasn’t really going to be happy until I was at the Performance Center in the training shirt and shaking hands with Triple H. That’s when I knew it was real. It has been a very long process in which I have had to suffer a lot to get here. Finally everything was real and I could scream with joy«.

? Working for WWE is a reward for so much sacrifice

«Working for WWE is like validating all the past years And all the efforts that I’ve had to do from show to show without knowing if there would be another after or the 17 hour bus ride from Laredo to Mexico City over and over again. Finally all my effort has been validated and I can share the ring with the best women from all over the world.

“It was a very hard effort to try to be recognized by the best international companies. That was one of the reasons why I jumped to Mexico because it was there where I could work on television and learn from the best and that’s what happened. In spite of everything there will always be someone who will not believe in you and they will say ‘no’ a million times but it’s worth it as long as they say ‘yes’ just once. Then all the tears, the injuries … it will all have been worth it«.

«Franky is just one more step in the evolution of my character within this industry and within my life, basically. It is a more advanced version of Taya Valkyrie. I am inspired by artists of all kinds: musicals, television, filmmakers? I think I borrow something that I like from each character and create my own. There’s a lot of Lady Gaga in Franky Monet. There’s a bit of Erika Jayne from ‘Housewives’ and there’s a bit of Marilyn Monroe. I think a little bit of all these iconic blondes I am creating day by day what you see every Tuesday in NXT«.

China is desperate to rewrite the pandemic narrative. The Asian country rejected, Thursday, July 22, the proposal of the World Health Organization (WHO) to continue the investigation into the origin of the pandemic on its territory, where the first patients in the world of Covid-19 have were identified at the end of 2019.

WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus last week requested an audit of laboratories in regions where the first cases of coronavirus were identified – a reference to the Chinese city of Wuhan, a time at the epicenter of the ‘epidemic.

Chinese Vice Minister of Health Zeng Yixin said “Extremely surprised” by this proposal. It’s a “Lack of respect for common sense and an arrogance towards science”, said Mr. Zeng at a press conference.

Draw attention to the United States

China disclosed to the WHO on December 31, 2019 the existence of an outbreak of pneumonia cases in Wuhan. But Beijing has always fiercely fought the theory that Covid-19 could have escaped from one of its laboratories, in particular those of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Long brushed aside by most experts, this theory brought to the United States by the former Trump administration has nevertheless returned in force in recent months in the American debate. For his part, one of the officials of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Yuan Zhiming, assured Thursday that his establishment had not been the subject of“No leak” or« accident ».

The Chinese authorities and the country’s media, on the other hand, regularly point to the Fort Detrick laboratory in the United States as being at the origin of Covid-19. Located near Washington, this laboratory is at the heart of American research against bioterrorism. According to Global Times, daily with a resolutely nationalist tone, five million Chinese Internet users signed a petition for the opening of an investigation into Fort Detrick.
