Some services, such as MRI and fertility clinic, will be offered by the private sector. Other services such as simple radiology or even minor surgeries that can be performed there will be covered by the health insurance plan, said Dr Gaspard.
The latter specifies that the operating room will include three rooms. They could for example be used for ophthalmology or endoscopy. To do this, the clinic must first obtain recognition from the Ministry of Health, and then attempt to win any calls for tenders from the public network.
The President and CEO of CISSSO, Jean Hébert, indicated that a study of “current and future needs” is underway. “In the event that we had to make agreements outside, we would certainly proceed by calls for tenders”, he stressed.
While the MRI machine of the new complex will be that of a private clinic currently located in the Hull sector, Mr. Hébert notes that the steps are continuing in parallel so that the Outaouais obtains a second public machine.
“The objective is to have it in the public, recognizes the deputy for Chapleau, Marc Carrière. [Pour] the private is to be complementary with what is public. “
Both Mr. Hébert and Mr. Carrière also made a point of stressing that the arrival of the GMF in the complex will increase access to family medicine in the urban sector, which is struggling a bit in this regard. relative to the rural areas of the region.
Saturday April 28, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom met Pope Francis at the Vatican where they were for a conference during which the singer discussed her practice of transcendental meditation.
Like Audrey Hepburn in “Roman Holidays”: in a beige dress and large straw hat, Katy Perry was spotted strolling through the streets of Rome on Saturday April 28th. His Grégory Peck: Orlando Bloom, of course, in a dark tie suit and sunglasses. Hand in hand, the singer and actor (back together since January 2018) visited the Colosseum before heading to the Vatican to discover the Sistine Chapel … and meet Pope Francis.
Katy Perry was indeed invited to the 4e annual conference “Unite to Cure”. Before her meeting with the Sovereign Pontiff, the 33-year-old singer changed her outfit, this time opting for a black dress, with a wool hat and tulle veil, still Audrey Hepburn style but “Diamonds on the sofa” version. All smiles, the young woman, raised by an evangelical Christian family, shook hands with Pope Francis. “I am honored to be in the presence of His Holiness Pope Francis, welcoming and with a big heart,” Katy Perry wrote on Instagram, visibly moved.
This visit to the Vatican was also an opportunity for Katy Perry to discuss a subject close to her heart: “I’m about to talk about meditation,” Katy Perry explained in her Instagram stories while she was in the car, towards the conference. “I am with my mom, my darling and my manager, Steve”. In association with The Cura Foundation and the teacher of transcendental meditation Bob Roth, the singer described the benefits of this practice during a filmed conference.

“I grab my phone as soon as I wake up in the morning like everyone else and sometimes it’s draining on my mind. So I have to reset, ”she said in particular. On her Instagram account, she added, “I am delighted to share how important Transcendental Meditation has been to me. I hope you choose to learn more about The Cura Foundation and the new technologies and cutting edge therapies that are bringing hope to the world ”.
PEOPLE – Katy Perry is a follower of meditation, to such an extent that she came to speak about it to Pope Francis, this Saturday, April 28, during an international conference on health at the Vatican. And she did not go there alone: her “darling” Orlando Bloom was also by her side.
“Hello everyone, I’m here in Rome at the Vatican, to talk about meditation, I’m with my mom, my darling and my manager, Steve, it’s a beautiful day!” She announced to her fans on his Instagram story. She also shared a photo of herself shaking hands with the pontiff.
“Honored to be in the presence of His Holiness,” she wrote, adding that this meeting was organized by the David Lynch Foundation on Transcendental Meditation as part of the conference on health and health disparities, “To unite to heal”.
During this three-day conference, the Pope was able to meet with nearly 500 people and discuss the impact of science and new technologies on society, culture and especially health, according to Vatican News.
As required by protocol, the singer was dressed in black with a minimalist black veil.
Katy Perry was raised in the Catholic Christian tradition, and Orlando Bloom has been a Buddhist since he was 16. It seems that the two lovebirds are patched up after deciding on a “break” in 2017.
The couple took advantage of this visit to Rome to play tourists, admire the Colosseum and take photos, posted on the singer’s Instagram story.
Vit looks a little bit like an elephant trying to sit on a stamp. In the middle of the stamp, mind you. The elephant – in this case an airplane. The stamp – an island.
“It could be a special landing, maybe we have to take off and try again,” reports captain Johann du Toit. He has been flying the twin-engine Embraer jet over the deserted expanse of the South Atlantic for a few hours. He is about to land on the runway at the new island airport. It is almost two kilometers long, but because more than a thousand kilometers all around in all directions nothing but the ocean, it looks tiny as postage stamps.
Secret cache St. Helena
The trip to St. Helena has never been easier. In 1502 it was discovered by the Portuguese and initially kept secret. Until recently, residents were dependent on ships. The Royal Mail Ship “St. Helena ”took her to Cape Town in five days, and only then did the plane continue. Since 2017 there has been this one scheduled flight with 76 seats once a week for the 4300 islanders and the (still) few tourists. And it has to be seen as a miracle of engineering that an airport was built here at all, which cost British taxpayers around 300 million euros. St. Helena is only a little bit larger than Sylt, has no large plain inside, and the coast consists almost entirely of steep rock faces.
The new air route now leads travelers from Johannesburg to Windhoek in Namibia. Here the tanks are filled to the brim with almost 13 tons of kerosene, which would allow six hours of flight time. When the weather forecast for St. Helena fits, the plane starts in Windhoek, and as soon as the “point of no return” has been reached over the Atlantic, that is, the point from which it would be impossible to turn around safely, known as PNR in aviator language, must open landed on an island. If not on St. Helena, then if necessary on Ascension, the next patch of land, 1,100 kilometers northwest. There would also be mainland, but only again in Angola, almost 2000 kilometers east. It is even 2900 kilometers to Brazil in the west.
Turbulence can occur
“Please fasten your seatbelts, there may be turbulence when approaching St. Helena,” warns a flight attendant. Some passengers bury their faces in fear. During the last steep curve the island can be seen for the first time – a small rock pancake in the ocean. And then . . . Nothing.
A short wiggle, then a butter-soft landing, even frequent flyers can be carried away to a liberated applause. Johann du Toit’s voice also sounds more relaxed: “Welcome to St. Helena!”
Ong Idéal also learned to put mosquito nets to the inhabitants of the village.
Korhogo, Apr 26 (AIP) – Awareness days against malaria were organized in Katonnon, a village populated by 2,000 inhabitants of the Diawala sub-prefecture, by a mining company, in collaboration with an NGO, as part of the World Malaria Day. The management of Tongon SA and the NGO Idéal Inter reiterated, on Wednesday, the call of the World Health Organization (WHO) relating to the collective commitment to eradicate malaria in the world, through its theme “Loans to beat malaria ”. Caused by the bites of the female Anopheles, this disease is one of the leading causes of death in the world, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa with 90% of cases, doctors said …

“The Handmaid’s Tale” is back for a second season that promises to be as trying as the first, starting tonight on OCS Max. The opportunity for us to look back on the career of the interpreter of Aunt Lydia, the talented Ann Dowd.
1. The Handmaid’s Tale: an incredible performance that won him an Emmy. +
Everything about season 2 and the universe of the series on thehandmaidstale.allocine.fr
After almost 30 years of career, Ann Dowd has an impressive career to her credit. The actress is best known for her role as Aunt Lydia in The Handmaid’s Tale, the adaptation of the novel. “The Scarlet Maid”. In this dystopian and totalitarian version of the United States, we follow the journey of June, a woman who became a servant under the name “Offred”, after a politico-religious sect took power. Ann Dowd plays the leader of this sect, a somewhat manipulative woman, indoctrinating maids with the beliefs of the new society and forcing them to accept their fate. His performance in the show earned him a Emmy Award in September 2017. So let’s come back to the journey of this incredible woman.
Ann Dowd discovered a passion for the theater at a young age and performed for several years in Chicago. She moved to New York in 1988 to pursue her dream. The actress must first be content to make simple appearances, especially in The Baby-Sitters Club. Based on the children’s book series of the same name, this show follows the ups and downs of a teenage-run babysitting club. She then plays in the trilogy Shiloh in 1997, as Louise Preston, and appeared in Alex Sichel’s cult film All Over Me. For a while, Ann Dowd made minor appearances in series like The X-Files, NYPD Blue, and Freaks and Geeks as well as in several episodes of CSI, but his career does not really take off.
AT THE SIDE OF STARS
In 1993, the actress was chosen to play Jill Beckett, the sister of Tom Hanks’ character, in Philadelphia. We then find her in 2004, alongside Meryl Streep, in The Manchurian Candidate, directed by Jonathan Demme. Also in 2004, Ann played Natalie Portman’s mother in Garden State and appeared in The Forgotten alongside Julianne Moore. She later landed the role of Mrs. Strank in Clint Eastwood’s feature film: Flags of Our Fathers. Despite her growing notoriety, the actress decides to refocus on the theater and therefore appears on Broadway in 2008 in The Seagull, where she gives the answer to Carey Mulligan and Kristin Scott Thomas. In 2007, she played Sister Aloysius in the play Doubt, and the New York Times describes her performance as “terrifying” and then describes her as “masterful in this role”. She therefore begins to make a name for herself, which will allow her to land new projects.
Ann Dowd has long been seen as a second-rate actress that everyone knows. She nevertheless reveals herself in 2012, in the film Compliance, in which she plays Sandra, team leader of a fast food restaurant, caught in a mysterious ethical nightmare. Directed by Craig Zobel, this absurd and anxiety-provoking drama about submission to authority is inspired by a series of news items that took place in the United States between 2002 and 2004. Ann Dowd receives rave reviews for her work and along footage is shown at Sundance Film Festival. Thanks to this project, the actress gains even more notoriety.
FROM SERIES TO SERIES
Subsequently, she got a role in Masters of Sex in 2013, that of Estabrooks, the mother of Dr. William Masters. In fall 2014, Ann took part in the eight-award-winning Olive Kitteridge miniseries Emmy Awards, in the skin of Bonnie Newton, the wife of the tumultuous Harmon. It was not until 2014 that she obtained one of the main roles in a series: The Leftovers, in the skin of Patti Levin, leader of the group. The Guilty Remnant. At the end of June 2017, Ann Dowd joined the cast of The Handmaid’s Tale with her mythical character of Aunt Lydia, who can be found from this Thursday, April 26, for a second season, from 8:45 p.m. on OCS Max. In the meantime, here is the trailer to immerse yourself in the world of The Handmaid’s Tale.
Unemployment in the United States is well below 15% and there are not “a hundred million people who have nothing to eat” notwithstanding what our French media think.

By Philippe Lacoude, from the United States
In the United States, the harmonized unemployment rate within the meaning of the OECD is indeed 4.1% currently. If we go into detail, some unemployed people are discouraged from looking for a job, but they only represent 0.3% of the working population. Many people are underemployed – either working below what they think is their skills, or wanting to work in another occupation – but they make up only 0.7% of the workforce.
Unemployment is therefore well below 15% and there are not “a hundred million people who have nothing to eat” notwithstanding what our French media think.
But if this 4.1% figure is true, how is this possible? Does France have anything to learn from the United States? Should we go from raw figures to a little analysis?
In the United States, federal labor law establishes
non-discrimination based on sex in terms of remuneration (via the Equal Pay Act from 1963)
non-discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex or national origin (via Title VII of the Civil Rights Act from 1964)
non-discrimination based on age (via the Age Discrimination in Employment Act from 1967)
non-discrimination based on disability (via the Rehabilitation Act from 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990)
the National Labor Relations Board, a sort of industrial tribunal (via the National Labor Relations Act of 1935, an avatar of the “red decade”) which President Obama has wrongly abused to punish his enemies and which President Trump has just overturned almost all recent decisions.
minimum wage, overtime, and child labor standards that affect full-time and part-time workers in the private sector and federal, state and local governments (via the Fair Labor Standards Act from 1938, another avatar of the “red decade”!)
labor law which requires employers to provide employees with protected and unpaid leave for medical and family reasons (via the Family and Medical Leave Act from 1993)
It is not perfect from a liberal point of view but all this is relatively benign compared to the huge French Labor Code. In any case, this right is partially supplementary and a non-negligible part of labor law depends on the law of the different States.
Nature of the employment contract
In particular, states decide on the nature of the employment contract. For the vast majority of states, the employment contract is a kind of commercial law contract where one person sells a product (their work) and another buys it under certain conditions. And in the absence of a contract – the vast majority of cases – there is almost no obligation on both parties. The job is then called at will, that is to say at will of the protagonists: the employees come if they want and the employers keep them if they want. There are few exceptions to this freedom of the parties.
This may seem incredible to a French or a Belgian but is not very different from the Swiss or Singaporean diets. And it turns out that these two countries, like many American states, have had full employment for decades. In his book Overcoming Law, the famous judge Richard Posner explains precisely the full American employment by this “employment at will”: there is very little risk of making a mistake for an employer and there is therefore almost no reason not to hire. Likewise, for an employee, it is easy to change jobs at the slightest opportunity that presents itself.
Another aspect of state law is that some force employees to be unionized if they want to work (union shop) while others forbid taking employee payrolls for the benefit of unions (right-to-work, or right to work).
Obviously, the labor movement is very strongly opposed to right to work laws: unionization fell 15% after Idaho and Oklahoma passed right to work laws in 1985 and 2001. attempts to establish unions drop by 50% after the passage of such laws. This is politically important because unions contributed nearly a billion dollars to the campaigns of Barack Obama in 2012 and Hillary Clinton in 2016. They represent more than half of electoral donations. Democrats who have traditionally benefited from union money for their election campaigns lament the union’s loss of influence.
Typically, wages fall by 3.2% on average in states where unionization is no longer compulsory. Employees are partly there for two reasons: payments to unions represent between 1% and 2% of the payslip – the pay cut is therefore only from 1.2% to 2.2% – and above all, states that recognize the “right to work” create more jobs.
In fact, as we can see below, out of the 24 states with higher unemployment low that the national average, 77% (weighted average of the number of workers) recognize the “right to work”. Conversely, out of the 23 states with higher unemployment high than the national average, 70% born recognize not the right to work!
District of Columbia
A final legislative aspect that differs from state to state and affects employment is taxation. For $ 10 in income, the average American sends about $ 2.20 to the federal state and about $ 1.30 to their state. Some states do not have income tax (such as Alaska, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington State, and Wyoming). Others like California, Iowa, or New York have rates that exceed or reach almost 10% of income.
Not surprisingly, it is the states with the lowest taxes that create the most jobs. This translates into large-scale tax revenue gains or losses. Two simple maps illustrate our point very well: the very socialist California, on the way to become one of the worst states for doing business and the capital of the poor in the United States, is losing jobs in favor of its immediate neighbors, the Nevada and Arizona but also in favor of Texas. A similar phenomenon brought to light by the SOI database that we mentioned above shows that there is a migration that does not discontinue from the northeast to Florida.
New York has one of the highest tax burdens in the country. The state consumes on average 12.7% of household income. Since New York Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo was sworn in in January 2011, 577,286 people have left for other states, taking with them more than $ 27 billion in tax revenue. The top recipient of ex-New Yorkers last year was the state of Florida from Republican Gov. Rick Scott, who has no income tax.
Because the local tax deduction from the federal tax base disappears this year, this phenomenon will accelerate. It is now easy to earn 5% or even 10% of income: move!
Apart from the fact that it would be difficult to find “hundred million people with nothing to eat” in the United States notwithstanding the eccentric opinions of the French media, the rather fine analysis of the various American states therefore teaches us that it is high time that France abolished its labor law, its outdated unionism and made a major tax reform. A bit like President Macron’s program… But for real!

Travis Reinking was arrested on Monday. He’s the man who killed four people the night before with a semi-automatic rifle at a Nashville restaurant.
Police in Nashville, in the southern United States, on Monday arrested the man who killed four people the day before with a semi-automatic rifle after more than 24 hours of manhunt in the suburbs of the capital of the Tennessee.
Travis Reinking, 29, “is in custody. Arrested moments ago,” police tweeted. He was found “in a wooded area,” she said, posting photos of the man in the back of a police car.
The man was on multiple arrest warrants for murder after shooting an AR-15 at customers at a 24-hour Waffle House restaurant in Antioch, southeast of Nashville, overnight from Saturday to Sunday.
Three people died instantly and another died in hospital. Two people were also injured.
One of the clients, James Shaw, 29, has been hailed as a hero for successfully disarming the gunman and scare him away after a fight.
Police said the man was wearing only a green jacket when he opened fire, which he removed while fleeing to his home near the restaurant. He then put on black pants before disappearing into the surrounding woods.
The FBI and the Secret Service involved
The local police forces, supported by the local office of the FBI, members of the ATF, the federal agency which regulates firearms and explosives as well as the Secret Service, in charge of the protection of personalities, squared since Sunday the research area. “All the schools in the area have been inspected,” the police said in a statement Monday morning.
She had specified that the schools of Antioch and a neighboring municipality were placed under confinement, the shooter may still be in possession of two weapons.
Originally from Illinois, Travis Reinking moved to Tennessee in the fall of 2017. His motivations remain unknown but according to local police he suffered from psychological disorders and had just returned to work after being laid off.
The man “has shown significant signs of instability” in the past, Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron said on Sunday.
The Secret Service had also indicated that Travis Reinking was arrested on July 7, 2017 after crossing the external security barriers of the White House in Washington.
Mr. Aaron said after the incident, his license to carry weapons in Illinois was revoked. Four weapons, including the AR-15 used in the Sunday shooting, were then seized by the authorities who had handed them over to the shooter’s father. But the latter admitted to having surrendered arms to his son before moving to Tennessee.
“Comprehensive reform of arms laws to tackle mass killings”
Nashville, the country music capital, had already been the scene of a shooting in September 2017 when a 25-year-old man opened fire in a church in full service, killing one and wounding six.
The mayor of the city, David Briley, had called on Sunday to rid the streets of the country of “weapons of war” that constitute the semi-automatic rifles.
“We need a comprehensive reform of gun laws to tackle mass killings, family crimes, accidental gunfire and homicides,” he said.
The AR-15 was used in several mass killings in the United States, including in Las Vegas in October (58 dead) and in a high school in Parkland, Florida, last February (17 dead).
The increase in massacres has spawned a vast movement in the United States demanding stricter control of firearms in the country. Gun violence is a national scourge, with 96 deaths on average per day, according to the anti-gun association Everytown for Gun Safety.
