Huawei CEO’s triumphant return to China

Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou upon arrival at Shenzhen Airport, China on September 25, 2021. XINHUA / VIA REUTERS In memory of a Chinese viewer, we had rarely seen this. The Air China Boeing 777 specially chartered to bring Meng Wanzhou, Huawei's chief financial officer from Vancouver, Canada, had barely entered Chinese airspace - at 7:32 p.m. - when Chinese television began its live stream. More than two hours will pass before the plane lands in Shenzhen and the "star" gets off, around 9:45 p.m. Red carpet, bouquets of roses, patriotic songs, nothing lack. Dressed in a long dress as red as the Chinese flag, greeted as she got off the plane by a hundred people - many more were present inside the airport -, the daughter of the founder of Huawei, detained for 1 0...

Presidential election 2022: the right buries the primary

Xavier Bertrand, president of Hauts-de-France and presidential candidate, in Saint-Quentin, September 15, 2021. DENIS CHARLET / AFP The activists have finally spoken. On Saturday September 25, the Republicans (LR) party organized a decisive congress, capable of writing the history of the coming months of the right wing formation. The executives have indeed questioned their members on the advisability of changing the statutes in order to choose the means of appointing their candidate for the presidential election of 2022. A question so delayed that it had become a subject of great concern in the corridors of the rue de Vaugirard, at the headquarters of the movement. Time is in the emergency for LR, while the presidential pre-campaign seems to take place without the right, caug...

Álex Palou, historical: from fighting with Formula 1 to fulfilling Fernando Alonso’s prediction

Related news September 26, 2021 will be fixed in the Spanish motorsport calendar as a date for history. Álex Palou became the first national champion of the IndyCar in his second season in the competition. An achievement that few saw coming a few months ago and that, however, was advanced by another motor myth such as Fernando Alonso. The 24-year-old boy who had to modify his dreams ended up playing the hit in Long Beach in a reward for all the work of the last summers. Palou and Alonso's careers have some coincidences. Among them that they started in the world of karting, their dream for Formula 1 and, above all, that they were discovered and supported by Adrian Campos, passed away last January in a great loss for the world of Spanish motorsport. These are just so...

The shock of space and the weight of the image

The start of this season unlike any other of the Contemporary Music Society of Quebec (SMCQ), which will see the transition from the Walter Boudreau era to a new era, took place on Sunday with a musical portrait of composer André Hamel. The SMCQ thus inaugurates a highly instructive programmatic vein which will mark this season: the concert-monograph. Default for the organization: contrary to the...

The Pope at War

the Pope Francis says there are people in the Vatican who want him dead. “I'm still alive, even though some wanted me dead. With these words, he was responding to a question asked about his state of health, the day after an operation undergone in July.

The anointing

Did you want a different social geography? A new political horizon? You had decided to look into the distance rather than the end of your feet? But what an idea! You wanted the agony of nature to end rather than seeing the smoke nationalized? Come on! Did you think that the word homeland should not be replaced by that of economy? Reckon it's always more complicated than you might think. T...

What vegans want, many young people want it too

Pythagoras defended vegetarianism, just like Rousseau and Voltaire. Plato made the ideal city a vegetarian city. Pope John Paul II even opened the doors of paradise to animals. But still. Between philosophical principles, spiritual concepts and concrete actions, veganism is still looked at askance today. And it is to explain the main lines and deconstruct certain ideas, even caricatures, that t...

With 600 million, we could have …

With the $ 600 million wasted to hold an unnecessary federal election, many more useful things could have been done for humans. Millions of poor people could have been vaccinated against COVID-19 around the world. We could have given a check to people on social assistance who did not receive a penny more during the pandemic, when the price of food continues to rise at top speed. We could have bui...

Freedom kills

I never thought that I would come to question the place of freedom among the civic virtues at the foundation of our society. My conviction is shaken by almost two years marked by a pandemic which cyclically forced us to deal with a series of sometimes severe restrictions in our movements, our choices of activities, our way of doing our job, our opportunities and our modes of socialization as well a...
