LThe establishment named Miracle, which will present a menu of festive cocktails, will be open from November 30 to December 31, from Thursday to Sunday, as well as Monday, December 25.
This ephemeral bar concept was born in New York in 2015 and relies on nostalgia for Christmas for children.
“The theme is taken care of down to the smallest detail; the room is fully and exaggeratedly decorated to recreate a Christmas atmosphere, the employees are dressed in kitsch Christmas uniforms and serve a menu of Christmas cocktails signed by Nico de Soto, one of the most influential mixologists in the world ”, describes André Duncan, Director of Operations for Miracle Sherbrooke.
Obviously, Christmas music will be there, and cult films will be projected on a 20 foot high wall.
“This feeling of loss will be there forever”: Jackson Follmann (25) survived the plane crash as one of three Chapecoense professionals a year ago today. He can no longer play professional football, but he also likes his new job. In the big kicker interview, he talks about a sad, intense year – but one that also had beautiful things in store.
Jackson Follmann can be heard and seen before the driver’s door opens. He is not a barker. But joker, that’s the ex-goalkeeper. And also officially ambassador of AF Chapecoense after he lost his right lower leg in the plane crash on November 29, 2016. At the same time as a survivor but gained a new life. This leads him to the training field every day, at least at the beginning of the units with the team, when the ball is played in a circle – and Follmann also participates. Or after training: when he organizes “detention” for old and new colleagues: while grilling.
The 25-year-old is one of only six survivors of the disaster a year ago, in which 71 of 77 inmates died. In addition to Follmann, only the professionals Alan Ruschel, who has meanwhile made his comeback, and Helio Neto, who is aiming to return to the field in 2018, survived.
kicker: A year has passed since the tragedy surrounding the LaMia flight to Colombia. How do you like your new role in the association as ambassador, Mr. Follmann?
Jackson Follmann: I enjoy being at the club every day and it also helps myself for my well-being. I am mainly active in the field of public relations.
kicker: What are you doing exactly?
Follmann: I have meetings, am involved in event preparation, speak to the media. I want and need to continue my education. Some things still take time, because I wasn’t prepared for that either.
kicker: We saw you with the team in Chapecó for almost a week, day after day. An ambassador with a weakness for daily training, can you say that?
Follmann: I’m no longer a goalkeeper, but an ambassador. But of course I am also there when training colleagues or at team meetings. I lead a normal life, my private life is completely normal again.
“This feeling of loss will be there forever”
kicker: Sometimes you complete parts of the goalkeeping training at the Arena Conda stadium.
Follmann: To be able to put on the gloves again and to taste the smell of the lawn again, that was and is a great feeling. I will do this whenever I can. These are magical moments.
kicker: How are you physically?
Follmann: I now feel very good about my body and the injuries. Of course I am also very sad. More than sadness outweighs this feeling of loss for lost colleagues who were friends. That sense of loss will be there forever.
“To be blessed by the Pope … it will be remembered for the rest of our lives”: Jackson Follmann. image
kicker: You have even married yourself in the meantime. Did 2017 go by rather quickly or was it rather tough in many phases of rehabilitation?
Follmann: It was a year full of emotions. It passed very quickly with all the processing, which concerns the physical, but also the mental. You have to look ahead. But it was also very difficult in some moments. But I wanted to get used to my new life as quickly as possible and learn to deal with my injuries. But this feeling of losing friends is always there. I am grateful to everyone who sent me messages to help me build up. This positive support also carried me through this year.
kicker: The emotions you mentioned: Which were particularly intense in a positive sense?
Follmann: When I could put on my prosthesis. I see my parents next to me and my wife and they are all crying. And of course I had to cry too. It was really a moment full of emotion.
kicker: How did your rehabilitation go?
Follmann: The adaptation to the prosthesis went very well. It took four or five days, nothing more. Fortunately, I don’t have to take any medication, nor do I need constant visits to the doctor. I have a prosthesis, but otherwise I do a lot of things like others. As I said: I lead a normal life.
I now live life with a different awareness.
kicker: But surely your view of the world has changed?
Follmann: I now live life with a different awareness. I am really more conscious of the little things, every day has become more important to me as such. Because I realized that there can be no tomorrow. The next day – for some it won’t come.
kicker: You survived, dozens of others didn’t. How does it feel, especially when you meet bereaved people in your role as ambassador for the club?
Follmann: I have great respect for these family members and try to support them with words and gestures. But at the same time I try to talk to them normally, I’m a completely normal young guy, so I hug them, show them my feelings for them. You have to know how far you can go, it’s about the loss of people.
kicker: Have you already met survivors of other accidents?
Follmann: No, but if that should happen, it would certainly be an interesting thing to exchange experiences.
kicker: Do you actually feel a fear of flying today when you fly to away games with the team?
Follmann: If so, then a completely normal one. I pray beforehand, and this prayer has already turned into something strengthening for me.
Meeting on site: Jackson Follmann with kicker reporter Jörg Wolfrum. kicker
kicker: There are survivors who are arguing with the club legally, they also want to know why this cheap airline was used at all. How do you see it
Follmann: These are things that have to be regulated by the association and the lawyers. Of course, people want to know what happened. Everything has to be clarified, because people should be able to go on living with a certain calm. We have all suffered a lot.
kicker: Is it true that you plan to compete in the Paralympics for Brazil in the future?
Follmann: I want to keep doing sports, if only for my health, that’s right. But really nothing professional. First of all, I have to see what I care about, what can be done for me with the prosthesis.
kicker: When you see AF Chapecoense a year after the crash, how do you feel?
Follmann: To see
that the club was not relegated , that pleases me very much. That is a great achievement. And I see a Jakson Follmann who can do something useful in this club.
Meeting Messi was a great pleasure. He’s the best player in the world, no question about it.
kicker: Did you yourself believe in this success, i.e. not relegation, at the beginning of the year?
Follmann: Everyone did a sensational job here. The majority of people must have thought it wasn’t possible. But Chapecoense always kept both feet on the ground. Therefore, and thank God, we can look ahead in terms of sport and strive for higher goals again.
kicker: Two trips by the club caused a sensation worldwide: the game at FC Barcelona in the summer and weeks later the visit to the Pope in Rome.
Follmann: Meeting Messi was a great pleasure. He’s the best player in the world, no question about it. At the same time he is a quiet, simple guy, like all of us here. Our conversation was about representing. And about the responsibility that comes with it. He stands for Barcelona, we represent Chapecoense. It was a good, healthy conversation.
kicker: What about the Pope? Like Messi, he is also an Argentine and, yes, also a football fan.
Follmann: To be blessed by the Pope … it will be remembered for the rest of our lives.
The other surviving professionals: This is how it looks with Alan Ruschel and Helio Neto.

The SDN list is the registry of those the United States considers infrequent. Zimbabwe, Libya and the DRC have the highest number of people sanctioned.
In Africa, at least 317 people in 26 countries are subject to economic sanctions from the United States, an analysis of the database of the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), an agency of the US Treasury, found.
Launched at the end of 1950, OFAC is the guarantor of the official register of American individual sanctions, better known under the name of “the SDN list” (specially designated nationals). Spanning over 1,420 pages, the comprehensive list spans 6 continents.
A vast repertoire of those whom the United States considers infrequent, the League of Nations List includes notorious warlords, heads of state (past and current), officials, businessmen and women, suspected drug traffickers. and people accused of acts of terrorism.
Some people are punished for major common law offenses. This is the case of six Nigerians who, to date, are the only Africans sanctioned under the rubric of cyber crime. Wanted by the FBI, the US federal police, they are accused of having stolen $ 6 million from companies and American citizens without ever leaving Nigeria.
In mid-August, two Ugandan judges were put on the sanctions list because, according to the US authorities, they were having Ugandan children adopted by Americans without the consent of their parents, who they made believe the children had. received a special scholarship for education abroad.
In addition to individuals, the US sanctions also target at least 200 businesses and charities on the African continent, as well as boats and planes, the exact number of which is difficult to determine.
Zimbabwe, Libya, DRC in the lead
On the continent, Zimbabwe is the country with the highest number of people sanctioned, 83 individuals. Among them are President Emerson Mnangagwa, as well as his predecessor Robert Mugabe, who died in 2018. The latter’s wife, Grace Mugabe, is also on the list.
Then comes Libya, with 46 individuals under sanctions, including the former Guide Muammar Gaddafi – killed in 2011 – and several members of his family.
The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) comes in third place, with 44 people subject to sanctions. Among them, we recognize names that have hit the headlines in recent years. They are, among others, Generals Laurent Nkunda, John Numbi and Célestin Kanyama; the former president of the electoral commission Corneille Nangaa; Kalev Mutondo, former head of intelligence; Senator Evariste Boshab, former president of the National Assembly and former chief of staff to former President Joseph Kabila.
Somalia, South Sudan, the Central African Republic, Nigeria, Burundi and Mali complete the list of countries where there are at least 10 people sanctioned.
“An individual can be sanctioned under several headings”, explains in an interview Gary Kalman, director of the branch of the NGO Transparency International in the United States. “It all depends on the circumstances of each case and the profile of the people involved”, he specifies.
Indeed, former Gambian President Yaya Jammeh is not listed under The Gambia, but rather under Equatorial Guinea, the country where he has lived since his exile in 2017. Similarly, the Ugandan Joseph Kony does not appear in Uganda. , but under the CAR and Sudan. Ditto for the former president of the CAR, Michel Djotodia, who appears under Benin, the country where he spent 6 years in exile until his return to Bangui in January.
The SDN list is above all an indispensable tool for American banks, import-export companies, lobbyists, binationals and businessmen who regularly deal with partners based outside the United States.
Concretely, an individual under sanctions cannot open a bank account or buy property in the United States. The accounts or properties that this individual held before being sanctioned are systematically frozen. These penalties are often accompanied by a visa ban.
Just because you have no assets in the United States does not mean that you are beyond the reach of American authorities, points out Professor Peter Harrell, sanctions expert at the Center for New American Security, a think-tank based in Washington.
He explains that the US government can require foreign-based entities to apply US sanctions or they will face penalties themselves. This mechanism is known as “secondary sanctions”.
“Secondary sanctions were introduced in the 1990s, but it was only recently – around 2009-2010 – that they became an important aspect of US foreign policy.”, explains Professor Harrell.
The principle is simple, he says: you have to choose either to deal with the infrequent or to deal with the United States, but not both.
In Namibia, secondary sanctions led to the cancellation, in 2017, of several construction contracts awarded to Mansudae Overseas Projects, a company linked to the armaments in North Korea. In 2015 the fear of sanctions led the only supplier of American currency in Angola to discontinue this service, causing a real headache for BNA, the Angolan central bank.
But as robust as it is, the US sanctions regime suffers from many shortcomings.
“There is a system of sanctions, of course, but there are also a series of maneuvers which allow them to be circumvented”, deplores Gary Kalman.
This is why, he adds, a handful of influential US lawmakers recently introduced a bill aimed at filling these loopholes.
Known as Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020, this bill has been attached to the Amending Defense Budget Act, which means that it should be promulgated in the coming weeks.
“The ultimate goal of sanctions is not to punish, but to cause positive behavior change”, said a source at OFAC who requested anonymity.

Yesterday morning in three Swiss cantons, including Valais, against suspected members of the Calabrian mafia.
The fifteen Italian nationals allegedly members of the ‘Ndrangheta arrested yesterday at dawn probably thought they were safe in Switzerland. It has not happened.

At the beginning of May, the Facebook group “T’es de Nyon si…” caught fire over the increase in prices for parking at the Combe shopping center. Coming into force on the 2nd of the same month, the new rates hurt the wallet, from the fourth hour of parking. A new blow for downtown Nyon and its traders, according to the many Internet users who reacted to the Facebook post.
However, customers of stores in NYON are not affected by this increase, according to Isabelle Vidon, spokesperson for the Migros Geneva cooperative which manages the car park: “Our prices remain unchanged for the first 4 hours of parking. Long enough to shop and enjoy the center of Nyon. It was only after that time that prices went up. ”

In this advertisement published in the journal Santé inc., And which Le Soleil reported on Wednesday, the ministry is asking family physicians to reorganize their practice so that their “patient base” reflects the composition of the age groups of the Quebec population. He specifies that 70% of patients waiting in the Family Doctor Access Counter are not vulnerable, compared to 30% “potentially vulnerable”.
An “ideal patient base”, according to the ministry, would therefore be composed mainly of not too old and healthy patients. The ministry therefore encourages doctors to see more than 20 patients a day for a practice of 36 hours per week, a practice that it considers “comfortable for a doctor”.
Entitled “A last sprint … to balance your practice!”, The advertisement, which shows a runner in the starting position and a stopwatch, has made doctors jump, including Dr. Vincent Demers, who practices at GMF Neufchâtel and who has chosen to follow the majority of vulnerable patients. According to him, the ministry clearly requests doctors to treat their patients “like cattle”.
Reason to be shocked
In interview at Soleil, on Wednesday, the president of the CMQ, Dr. Charles Bernard, said that the doctors were “right to be shocked”. According to him, it is “a little unsightly to ask the doctor to see a certain number of patients in a day”.
“It goes against our beliefs at the College. We are there to ensure that patients have quality care. […] We also insist on the professionalism of doctors by trying to instill in them respect for patients. In the hospital or outpatient setting, the context means that they can be a little more expeditious, but in an office setting, doctors need to take the time to talk and listen to their patients, “argued Dr. Bernard.
Asked whether the Ministry of Health intended to rebroadcast the advertisement despite the criticism, the spokesperson Noémie Vanheuverzwijn had this response: “From the start, the publication of this advertisement was planned in two publications intended for family physicians: Health inc. (November-December edition) and Health Profession (November edition). No changes have been made to the placement. “
The spokesperson adds that “this advertisement was part of a broader strategy with other advertising concepts having been published in recent months in these same two publications and aims to inform doctors about the achievement of targets [d’inscription] of the agreement with the Federation of General Practitioners of Quebec ”.

Serge Gainsbourg’s daughter has always been attached to France through her father and through her career as a singer and actress.
But Charlotte Gainsbourg has made a big decision in recent months: to leave France to go live in the United States. A start in the minds for a long time. But a drama in the Gainsbourg family precipitated this departure: the death of his half-sister Kate Barry in December 2013 at the age of 46.
Almost four years have passed after this death and emotion is still strong for Charlotte Gainsbourg when it comes to evoking this tragic event. It was in the columns of the weekly Paris Match that the artist confided in all modesty. “With Yvan (Attal her husband: editor’s note) and the children, it has been ten years that we have been talking about settling down one day in the United States without ever succeeding in deciding. With Kate’s death, I couldn’t get there in Paris any more. Yes, I fled. For me, it was the only solution at the time. Yvan and the children agreed to follow me. They understood that it was necessary “, she specifies.
Nothing removes the disappearance of a family member. But this departure to New York seems to have done good to the singer for whom returning to the capital sounds like a raw wound. “Paris is still a city of mourning. Leaving for New York did not prevent me from thinking about my sister all the time, far from it, but it allowed me to experience my mourning in a more unreal way. brings me back to something overly real. That’s why I don’t really enjoy being here yet.”
However, the city of Paris remains in his heart, in the legendary rue de Verneuil, place where was the main house of his father Serge Gainsbourg. She says she needs to go back from time to time to recharge her batteries and even thinks of making it a place open to everyone. “I don’t go there often because it is not a neutral place, you must have the courage to undergo it a little. But I’m going. I am thinking of making it a museum. I want it again.”
