November 7, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Les Echos to reappear tomorrow after two-day strike May 10, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders shares the concerns of journalists employed by France’s biggest-circulation business daily Les Echos who are opposing its sale by the British media group Pearson to French luxury goods group LVMH. The newspaper was not available in news stands today because staff suspended work in protest against the sale, announced yesterday.“We support Les Echos’ journalists, who fear a loss of editorial independence as a result of LVMH’s activities, especially in the luxury goods industry,” the press freedom organisation said. “The risks of a conflict of interests are real and the defence of this leading French newspaper’s editorial freedom is more necessary than ever.”At a meeting today, the staff of Les Echos agreed by 241 votes to 96 (with 7 blank votes) to continue to suspend production of the newspaper. This resolution renewed the decision taken by journalists immediately after the sale’s announcement yesterday, which – ironically – was European Press Freedom Day.President Nicolas Sarkozy’s culture and broadcasting adviser, Georges-Marc Benamou, has acknowledged that there is a danger of a conflict of interests.Pearson, which also owns the Financial Times, began exclusive negotiations with LVMH on 21 June. It finally announced yesterday that an agreement had been signed for the purchase of Les Echos by LVMH for 240 million euros. The French group is headed by the country’s richest man, Bernard Arnault.The deal means that LVMH will have to sell Les Echos’ leading competitor, La Tribune. Four companies are interested in buying it, but the workers’ council at La Tribune voiced scepticism last night about the “quality” of the company that would probably be chosen.Les Echos’ workers’ council and trade unions issued a joint press release today announcing their intention to challenge the sale on the grounds that it was a clear violation of France’s antitrust laws. They said they had written to economy and finance minister Christine Lagarde to alert her to the situation.A rival bid for Les Echos by French financial group Fimalac, the owner of the credit-rating agency Fitch, for 245 million euros is supported by the newspaper’s staff. They say Pearson always refused to examine this offer on the grounds that it had signed an agreement to negotiate exclusively with LVMH until 26 NovemberA petition in support of Les Echos’ journalists is available on the newspaper’s website, www.lesechos.fr.

It is illegal for anyone 21 or older to drive with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or higher.Officers may ask people they contact how many drinks they have consumed and whether they believe it is safe to drive. Officers will provide information on the impacts of alcohol on one’s ability to drive, and the consequences of a DUI.“The goal is to help people understand the effects of alcohol so they can make smart decisions about how they get home,” Lieutenant Anthony Russo said. “It only takes a few drinks to impair, and that’s why it is important that people know their limit.”A person’s height, weight, food intake, drug and/or medication use and how much they drink over a time period are all factors that affect their BAC.According to the California Driver Handbook, it takes two drinks consumed within one hour by a woman between 120-160 pounds and three drinks by a man between 180-220 pounds to be over the legal limit. One drink is based on 1.5 oz. of liquor (40% alcohol), 12 oz. of beer (4.5% alcohol) or a 5 oz. glass of wine (12% alcohol). The BAC lowers at a rate of .01% for every 40 minutes between drinks.

The opioid crisis is being felt acutely in Massachusetts, with nearly 40 individuals dying every week from an opioid overdose. Amidst the epidemic, a new project led by two Harvard Medical School (HMS) students aims to highlight a different story arc.“RESILIENT: Narratives of Hope from Boston’s Opioid Crisis” is a curated collection of interviews and photographs of 31 individuals connected to the opioid epidemic in the greater Boston area. The exhibit, which launched Wednesday evening at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), displays the insights and images of the individuals across five themed panels spanning more than 35 feet. A team of over twenty individuals, mostly composed of healthcare students and other young professionals, collected the interviews and photographs for RESILIENT over the course of the last year.RESILIENT co-directors Mimi Yen Li and Joyce Zhou, second-year students at HMS, said they hope the project will engage viewers about topics such as stigma, medication-assisted treatment, and recovery options. They also hope to promote conversation and action.“We aimed to create a platform to present a different narrative of the opioid crisis,” Zhou said. “While recognizing the tragedy and loss, RESILIENT highlights hope and recovery, a side of the story too often missed in coverage of the epidemic.”,The four primary panels are organized thematically. “On Empathy” challenges viewers to consider the stigma against substance use disorder as a barrier to empathizing with those struggling with opioid dependence. “On Healing” focuses on stories of recovery from those who struggled with opioid dependence and the individuals who helped guide their healing. “On Change” chronicles innovations in medical management, government policy, and law enforcement which have all been aimed at improving the city’s and the state’s response to the crisis. The final panel, “On Belonging,” asks viewers to consider the role they can play.“How will you take part?” the exhibit concludes.“We have a profound debt to everyone who shared their stories with us for this project,” Yen Li adds. “This project would not have been possible without the courage of our interviewees and the hard work of our volunteer contributors.”The launch of RESILIENT coincided with the start of “Recovery Month,” a series of events that have been organized to educate staff and community members about the opioid crisis and bring attention to services offered at the hospital to combat it. The launch included guest speakers Dr. Joji Suzuki, Dr. Christin Price, and Dr. Scott Weiner from BWH’s comprehensive opioid response team; Ursel Hughes, a recovery coach, person in recovery, and project participant; a patient from BRIDGE clinic; and co-directors Zhou and Yen Li. The event concluded with an animated story of recovery featuring project participant Pesha Rose Miller. More than 150 community members attended the exhibit.The exhibit is open to the public and will remain on display at BWH for the next two months.

Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, right, tries to drive past Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown, left, during the first quarter of an NBA basketball game, Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2017, in Boston. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa)BOSTON — Giannis Antetokounmpo dribbled into the paint, spun to his left and found his path to the basket blocked by Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum.Instead, the Greek Freak fed the ball to Matthew Dellavedova beyond the arc for the 3-pointer that helped seal Milwaukee’s 108-100 victory over the Boston Celtics in the Bucks’ season opener on Wednesday night.ADVERTISEMENT “I passed the ball to Delly,” said Antetokounmpo, who had 16 of his 37 points in the fourth quarter— and the biggest assist of the game, as well. “And that’s what Delly does.”One night after a gruesome broken ankle just six minutes into the season cost Boston top free agent Gordon Hayward — perhaps for the entire year — the Celtics fell to 0-2 by giving up an 11-1 run that left Milwaukee with a 97-90 lead and under three minutes to play.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutAntetokounmpo added 13 rebounds, Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon scored 19 points and Khris Middleton had 15 points and nine rebounds for the Bucks. Dellavedova scored 15 points, including the 3-pointer with 45 seconds left after the Celtics cut the lead to two points.“I thought Giannis made a great play at the end, trusting his teammate,” Bucks coach Jason Kidd said. “Just to trust his teammate down at the end to make a play … he got off the ball and Delly made a big shot.” Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Kyrie Irving scored 17 points on 7-for-25 shooting in his Boston debut, and Jaylen Brown had 18 in a subdued home opener for the Celtics, who underwent a near-complete overhaul over the summer even after earning the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference last season.Although Irving and No. 3 draft pick Jayson Tatum appeared in a Celtics home uniform for the first time, Hayward was left to wish them well in a pregame video in his hospital gown from his hospital bed. After cheering Hayward during his scoreboard appearance, the Celtics fans broke into a chant of his name during the first half.“Like he told us before the game, we got that message — before the whole arena got the message — he’s fine,” Celtics guard Terry Rozier said. “Personally, it was tough seeing, but I think we’ll be fine. We’ve just got to adjust.”But the team was unable to make up for the absence of the player who was expected to be their key offseason acquisition when he signed a four-year, $128 million contract to rejoin Brad Stevens, his college coach, in Boston.The Celtics trailed by seven heading into the third quarter before scoring 14 of the next 16 points, taking a 69-64 lead on Irving’s 3-pointer from the top of the key. But the Bucks regained the lead with six minutes to play, holding Boston without a basket for about five minutes.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ View comments LATEST STORIES Fire hits houses in Mandaluyong City BSP sees higher prices in November, but expects stronger peso, low rice costs to put up fight Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

England defeated Colombia 4-3 in a shootout to set up a quarter-final against Sweden in World Cup 2018.Mateus Uribe and Carlos Bacca failed to convert for Colombia as Eric Dier slotted home the winning penalty for EnglandIt was the first time Colombia had been involved in a World Cup shootout and they took first blood when Jordan Henderson missed his spot kick – but for once fortune smiled on England.It is the furthest England has progressed in any tournament since the David Beckham era, when a golden generation of players exited the 2002 and 2006 World Cups in the last eight.Colombia vs England: HIGHLIGHTSEarlier Harry Kane smashed in a 57th-minute penalty, his sixth goal of the tournament, and England looked to be through until Yerry Mina headed an equaliser in the third minute of stoppage time.Colombia’s hopes suffered a huge setback before kickoff when key playmaker James Rodriguez was ruled out with a calf injury and without him they took a defensive approach and never rarely threatened. England were always the more purposeful side but they lacked the key final ball and needed a gift to take the lead.2018 FIFA WORLD CUP: FULL COVERAGEThe South Americans had been getting away with blatant holding and wrestling at each of England’s many corners and the referee’s patience finally snapped when Carlos Sanchez hauled down tournament leading scorer Kane once too often.After four minutes of mayhem as the Colombians protested, Kane kept his cool and smashed in his third spot kick of Russia 2018.advertisementIn the stoppage time, England keeper Jordan Pickford made a superb save to touch wide a furious long shot by Uribe but from the following corner – Colombia’s first of the match – giant defender Mina rose highest to head in the equaliser and send the massed Colombian fans into a frenzy.Earlier, Emil Forsberg’s deflected goal gave Sweden a 1-0 victory over Switzerland, sending them through to the World Cup quarter-finals.Both teams were wasteful in possession and guilty of the sort of poor finishing and unimaginative midfield play that had boos and whistles ringing around the St Petersburg stadium from as early as the 25th minute.Switzerland came into the match as the side with arguably the greater wealth of attacking talent, but their four shots on target over the 90 minutes told its own story.Sweden vs Switzerland: HIGHLIGHTSSweden had one attempt fewer on target, with the only difference being that one effort took a heavy deflection and wrong-footed Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer to send the Swedes into the next round.The Swedes were happy to pack midfield as they have done for the entire tournament and shepherd the Swiss down the wings, surrendering possession while looking to pinch a goal on the counter.Both teams had opportunity to open the scoring in the first-half but none of them could capitalise.Marcus Berg forced a fine save from Sommer in the 27th minute while Blerim Dzemaili wasted Switzerland’s best chance when he fired over from 12 metres.The second half started in a similarly stultifying manner, with the game looking like it was inching inevitably towards extra time and potentially a penalty shootout.But it all changed in the 66th minute as Forsberg’s shot which was directed straight at Sommer deflected off Manuel Akanji past his stranded keeper.Switzerland sparked into life after going behind, but Sweden defended stoutly, making 33 clearances and nine blocks in total, while completing fewer than half the number of passes that their opponents did.England break penalty shootout droughtIt was for the first time that England won a penalty shootout in a World Cup match. They had lost all three earlier penalty shootouts.With Pickford saving Bacca’s penalty, he became the first English goalkeeper to save a penalty in a penalty shoot-out at a major tournament since David Seaman at World Cup 1998 against Argentina. Seaman had denied Hernan Crespo that day in Saint-Ettiene. But, Argentina won the match 4-3 on penalties.READ FULL STORY Kane sets new goalscoring recordWith his 57th minute goal against Colombia, Kane became the first England player to score in his first three World Cup matches. He’s also the first Englishman to score in six consecutive international matches since Tommy Lawton in 1939.Mina matches Paul BreitnerThe goal against England was Mina’s third in this World Cup. He has now equalled the World Cup record for most goals by a defender in a single World Cup, which was set by Germany’s Paul Breitner in 1974.advertisementThe stoppage time goal was also the 99th goal scored after the 90th minute in World Cup history. On the other hand, it was the first time England conceded a goal in the stoppage time in a World Cup match.Pickford’s homework comes in handyPickford said he had done his homework to try not to follow a succession of England goalkeepers to walk off the loser after a shootout.”I did all my research. I’ve got power and agility. I don’t care if I’m not the biggest keeper because it’s about being there in the moment and making the save and I was,” Pickford said.”It’s all about the set position and I got a hand to it. We knew we had this game, even if it had to go to penalties, we knew we were capable of winning.”Dier says England never panicked Eric Dier said England just kept calm and didn’t panic as his successful penalty helped England beat Colombia.”To get knocked down like we did is difficult to come back from it,” Dier said after Yerry Mina had equalised for the Colombians in stoppage time to force the match into goalless extra time.”We knew what we had to do and we stayed calm,” he added after the 4-3 shootout win. “We never panicked. We were ready for that.”Forsberg terms his goal the biggest of his careerSweden’s goal scorer Forsberg was on the seventh heaven after leading his team into the quarter-finals.”It’s the biggest goal of my career, one of the biggest moments in my career too. To experience this, to fire Sweden into the quarter-finals together with this group, it feels fantastic,” said Forsberg.READ FULL STORYForsberg’s goal was scored on his 14th shot in this World Cup. No player in this edition has had more without scoring.Swedish coach praises his teamJanne Andersson said his team’s work ethics has helped them reach the quarter-finals.”This team personifies the approach we all share – we work for each other on and off the pitch, and I’m incredibly happy that it’s paying off,” Andersson told reporters. The Swedes have now seen off Netherlands from their qualifying group, Italy in a playoff, Germany at the group stage and Switzerland in the last 16, leading to questions about whether other nations have underestimated Andersson and his men.”I think you’d have to ask everyone else that question. We know we are a good team, that we’ve earned our successes – we know how we got this far,” the 55-year-old explained.”We’ve worked this way throughout, we’re continuing the same way, and what other teams and countries think about that is not terribly interesting.”Sweden win brings an end to a 24-year waitSweden have reached the quarter-finals of a World Cup for the first time since 1994, when the team reached the semi-finals.READ FULL STORYThis is also the first time since 1958 that the European nation won back-to-back matches in a World Cup. In their previous match they had defeated Mexico 3-0 in the Group F match.advertisementThe match against Switzerland was Sweden’s 50th at the World Cup finals. Only Mexico (57) have played more matches than them without ever winning the tournament.(With Reuters inputs)
