Trips to France: in the face of variants, the rules change from this Sunday

This measure does not concern everyone.

LFrance will impose covid tests of less than 24 hours on entry into its territory from the United Kingdom, Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, Greece and the Netherlands, announced Matignon Saturday.

This measure, which concerns unvaccinated travelers, will come into force on Sunday at midnight, said a press release from Prime Minister Jean Castex.

Matignon also confirms the expansion of the list of “red” countries to Tunisia, Mozambique, Cuba and Indonesia.

People arriving from the UK are so far subject to a test of less than 48 hours. The deadline is 72 hours for those coming from Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, the Netherlands and Greece.

Complete vaccination schedule

“At the same time, and because the vaccines are effective against the virus, and in particular its delta variant, the constraints weighing on travelers benefiting from a complete vaccination schedule with a vaccine recognized by the European Medicines Agency (Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca or Janssen) will be lifted from this Saturday, July 17, regardless of the country of origin, ”continues Matignon.

Jean Castex also confirms that the vaccination schedule is now considered complete seven days after the injection of a second dose, or a dose for people who have already contracted the virus, against 14 days previously.

However, for the Janssen single dose vaccine, the schedule remains complete after injection and a period of 28 days.

Finally, the Covishield vaccine “is now recognized for the health pass”.

Covid contaminations continue to climb rapidly, dropping back above the 10,000 mark on Friday under the effect of the delta variant, while hospitalizations were still down slightly, according to figures from Public Health France.

Girondins: the future of Alain Roche in suspense – Girondins

While the buyout of the Girondins de Bordeaux by Gérard Lopez has been validated by the DNCG, there should be change within the Girondins de Bordeaux.

Another job for Alain Roche?

According to Sud-Ouest, with the arrival of Admar Lopes as technical director of the Girondins, the future of Alain Roche is uncertain within the club. However, he has the advantage of knowing the house well. Former player of the Navy and White, he worked on several projects, especially among young people. We can therefore imagine that Alain Roche will remain at the club but will occupy a different position from the one he currently occupies.

key day for Together for Change, which is heading to an intern

Maximiliano Allica / [email protected]

Today is a key day for the conformation of the 2021 political board. The deadline has arrived to register alliances in the electoral justice and it is also time to define the internal rules of the game of each coalition to compete in the primaries. High impact decisions in Together for Change, which this year is heading towards a momentous bid.

One of the points to be resolved before midnight is the incorporation or not of two poles, the GEN led by Margarita Stolbizer and Avanza Libertad by José Luis Espert, to broaden the spectrum of voters. The first is very close to agreeing and the second wants guarantees that he will be able to go with his own ballot to September.

The other decisive item is that each coalition of parties, such as JxC, has the power to establish its own rules for competition in the PASO. A central aspect to determine today is what percentage of votes the losers will need to place candidates on the final ballot. This percentage is called “flat” or “putting in the minority.”

For example, if within Together for Change, parties A, B and C are presented in primaries, the total of votes obtained by the three spaces is taken and the percentage of each one is measured. One of the three will win and the other two will need to get to the floor for their candidates to put the minority on the final ballot. If the threshold to be exceeded is 30% and party A obtains 45%, B 30% and C 25%, the list that will compete in the general elections will be composed in its first places with the figures of A, plus some from B, but representatives from C are left out.

Two specific cases. In August 2015, Héctor Gay (Pro) competed in the primaries against Roberto Ursino (UCR). As radicalism got few votes and did not reach the ground, the ballot of councilors that finally accompanied Gay in October only included their own and left out the radicals. Another example in Bahia was Unidad Ciudadana in the 2017 legislative elections, where the lists headed by Carlos Quiroga and Rodolfo Lopes were measured in August. There Quiroga prevailed, although Lopes did exceed the floor and in the final ballot they had to include the former mayor in fourth place, in addition to giving him boxes 8 and 12.

What is the relevance of that math this year? Together for Change is about to put a low floor of 20%, which would stimulate competition because it increases the chances of parties starting with a disadvantage in their districts.

Since it exists, Cambiemos would be the most permissive model chosen by the coalition partners. Until now, these internal rules had more demanding floors, of 30%, tending to make the dispute in primaries more difficult. Especially in 2017 and 2019 when there were yellow governments aligned in the Nation, Province and many important municipalities.

But today the Pro must ratify its supremacy within the coalition and found an obstacle: radicalism. So far quite underestimated, this time he pushed to go to the primary or to be given a greater role.

In the Province of Buenos Aires, unlike CABA where the coalition sealed the unit, there will almost certainly be competition between the Pro and the UCR in all sections, both national deputies and provincial legislators and councilors. Today there will be a new summit between party leaders to define the details.

Diego Santilli and Facundo Manes

The radical Facundo Manes is a competitive candidate against the likely yellow contender Diego Santilli, sent by Horacio Rodríguez Larreta. The neuroscientist looks at polls and does not see why he would have to give up the first position on the list on a JxC unit ballot, so he asks to compete in the PASO against the Buenos Aires deputy chief or that the number 1 of an eventual unique ballot is his.

If María Eugenia Vidal played in the Province, the indisputable face would have been her, but when she went to the City and annulled Patricia Bullrich, the Pro does not have outstanding Buenos Aires names.

With Manes as the spearhead, many radicals want to leave the role of subordinates and fight for more. However, there are others who are very pragmatic who understand that in many districts they do not have enough muscle to beat the Pro and that ultimately too many injured people would come out of that intern. Bahia would be a case.

Until last night, the strongest possibility was total competition. If confirmed, on September 12 the ballots headed by Adrián Jouglard from Pro and Emiliano Alvarez Porte from the UCR would face off in the line of Bahia councilors. Curious: it is the Secretary of Government and his undersecretary in the area of ​​Security. In the court of Buenos Aires deputies there are still no names, but the dance is about to begin.

Who will the other parties in the alliance support, such as the Civic Coalition, Republican Peronism and other satellites? At the local level there seems to be an inclination to go yellow, but the rankings will depend on the agreements above. The most concerned are the extra Pro who hold positions in the Municipality, because they assume that if they are forced to stand on their hands against the hosts of Gay they would be putting their places at risk. Nothing is safe at this hour.

What is clear is that it is a primary with the smell of 2023. Larreta has already twisted the wrist in the internal partisan to Bullrich and Mauricio Macri, but he can still stumble over the Manes-Martín Lousteau axis and leave the field open.

“The pelado won the battles at sea, see if he loses the landing,” says an observer with first-hand information. The Larreta-Lousteau pike comes from the elections in CABA of 2015, when the current head of the Buenos Aires government had to perspire until the ballottage to beat the former minister of Kirchnerism and today a senator for the UCR.

As for Bahia, Jouglard is a well-profiled leader for what is coming, a dialogist. And he has someone who will seat him at the table very small. There is still a lot of history to write.

Leaders of All for Bahia.

The Bahiense Front of All is no less restless but, having clear leadership in the Nation and Province, is waiting for the last meetings with the national shipowners to finish sharpening the pencil. For now, all expectations of occupying pigeon holes on the lists remain almost the same as last week.

In turn, behind hyperpolarization, two neighborhood spaces move their tokens. Everyone for Bahia, already without Leonardo Valente, will sign up to participate again. Its reference Sebastián Gómez, who is closely related to the Villarinense mayor and Carlos Bevilacqua, a neighbor, intends to close the list of candidates this week, perhaps tomorrow.

An option that played a leading role in the first decade of the 2000s will also return. Integración Ciudadana confirmed that it will sign up in the race and has even already defined the first three names on its list of councilors: María de los Angeles Rosón, Nicolás Marín and Vanesa Troncozo .

The other protagonist, of course, will be the Left Front, which usually grows in mid-term elections and will try to access a local bank for the first time.

One question is who will wear the Florencio Randazzo shirt. Radio silence. Although someone is always willing to be in the photo.

The minimum objective of the spaces with less scope will be to achieve 1.5% in September that will allow them to compete in the generals on November 14. The maximum, pierce the figure of 8.33% granted by a bench in the Deliberative Council.

There seems to be no place for third parties this year, but no races are lost before starting.

With the discussion about the phases turned off, at least for a time, thanks to the drop in the contagion curve and in the occupation of hospital beds, today much of the debate around the management of the pandemic once again focused on the detection of cases and vaccination. The policy also looks carefully at this data.

The positivity rate in Bahía Blanca, that is, the number of positives based on the tests carried out, is around 40%, a very high figure. The explanation sounds simple: most people swab when they have symptoms, but since last year different doctors have warned that the city needs to be raked in search of the countless asymptomatic patients to isolate them immediately, creating sanitary barriers.

It is a discussion that is going to regain strength in the coming days, because just as the second wave seems to be already foam, the threat of a third wave looms with the massive circulation of the fearsome delta variant, which for now only registers scattered cases in the country but that could spread in these winter holidays, where domestic tourism will have almost no restrictions. The second wave, it is worth remembering, began to take off after the Easter holidays.

A difference in favor compared to April is that there are more people vaccinated. In fact, at this time in Bahía Blanca and the rest of the Province, practically no one is vaccinated who does not want to. The first doses are free at all posts for those over 35 years of age, risk groups of any age, health personnel, security personnel and teachers.

A couple of facts about the local situation. 47.66% of the total population already have at least one dose and 12.59% with two doses. These are figures slightly above the national average, which stands at 44.05% and 11.08% respectively. In addition, last Wednesday was the record day for the number of applications in Bahia with almost 3,600 and the average for July remains high, above 2,800 daily vaccinations.

However, the third wave, inevitable according to most experts, could rage very close to the PASO elections. Three questions: If there is a peak on those days, will the calendar be maintained or is there still room for modifications? If the primaries are carried out at a time of rising infections, how much will the participation of the electorate drop? If the increase in cases hits hospitals and stages, how much will it affect the government at the polls?

They are dilemmas that will begin to flood the periscope of politics.


Travel: change for Belgians going to France

Foreign tourists will have to put their hand in the wallet to get tested.

LCovid-19 detection tests become chargeable from this Wednesday for foreign tourists visiting France, in accordance with what French government spokesman Gabriel Attal told the media. The echoes.

They are billed “up to 49 euros for PCR and 29 euros for antigens,” added Mr. Attal, for whom “it is a matter of reciprocity knowing that these tests are paid in most countries for the French who travel ”. Mr. Attal, who had felt that it was necessary to “wonder” on this question, recalled that “the tourists who come to us are obviously subjected to the sanitary pass”.

More broadly, the question of the delisting of so-called “comfort” PCR tests “will obviously arise for the start of the school year” for the French, he repeated. As regards the vaccination of caregivers, “until now we have chosen conviction rather than coercion, but that could change” because “we cannot accept any risk-taking for the residents of nursing homes (establishments for the elderly). elderly, Editor’s note) linked to unvaccinated caregivers, ”he added.

Corporations pulled on the globe – Newspaper Kommersant No. 114 (7076) from 07/03/2021

The 130 largest countries in the world (including Russia) have supported the idea of ​​a global minimum corporate tax of 15%, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) said. We are talking about a fundamental change in the rules of international taxation, which will force large corporations to pay more in countries where they actually earn money, and also reduce the attractiveness of low-tax jurisdictions. This approach is generally consistent with the efforts of the Russian government, which was preparing the introduction of a digital tax for foreign IT giants.

The OECD announced that 130 countries, which account for more than 90% of world GDP, following the meeting in a virtual format, supported a plan to reform the rules of international taxation. The Russian Federation is also on the list. Russian departments did not comment on this event yesterday. The Finance Ministry did not respond to Kommersant’s request.

The essence of the reform is to force multinational companies that take advantage of the possibilities of tax minimization to pay more taxes, including in the countries of real presence.

Recall that the initiative was put forward by the US Treasury at the tax site of the OECD and the G20, where proposals for the harmonization of corporate taxation have been discussed for many years (see Kommersant of May 24).

Experts say that these changes are the largest in the tax area in recent decades. Large international business (primarily technology giants from the United States) will have to pay income tax not only where it is registered, but also in the countries where it earns (recall, this is exactly what the Russian authorities are trying to achieve, considering the introduction of a digital tax for foreign IT- companies). In the countries that agree to this, a minimum income tax rate of 15% will be introduced. If it is somewhere lower, the country of origin of capital will be able to “get” the tax up to 15%, which greatly reduces the attractiveness of low-tax jurisdictions (offshore).

The OECD estimates that the reform could bring countries as a whole about $ 150 billion in additional revenue per year.

Secretary General Mathias Kormann called the approved package of measures “historic”. According to him, he will not eliminate tax competition, but will take into account the interests of small and developing countries. The details of the project, according to the expectations of the OECD, should be ready in October, the start of the reform itself is scheduled for 2023 – the countries must have time to prepare national tax acts.

Note that until recently, President Vladimir Putin instructed the government to work out the issue of such a tax. Then the head of the Federal Tax Service, Daniil Yegorov, assessed the idea of ​​the tax carefully, noting that it “needs to be calculated from the point of view of sovereign interests” (see Kommersant on June 18).

According to experts, the reform will bring additional funds to the Russian budget, but consumers of digital services will pay for it. Alexander Tokarev, partner of KPMG in Russia and the CIS, says that Russia’s joining the initiative will allow it to receive additional tax payments from foreign companies that generate revenue from Russian users. “It is important that the measures proposed by the OECD, in fact, imply the abandonment of unilateral country digital taxes,” he explained to Kommersant.

Initially, it was planned to expand the initiative to digital companies, but the approach agreed by the OECD is broader – the new rules may affect multinational corporations if they exceed certain thresholds for revenue and profitability, regardless of industry. “

Rustam Vakhitov, partner in international taxation at Crowe Expertise, notes that, in fact, the states participating in the initiative will additionally tax the income of their groups from countries with a tax rate below 15% and will stimulate low-tax jurisdictions to introduce / increase such a tax. “In addition, countries will be able to tax part of the income that large multinational companies receive from their residents, but refuse to introduce digital taxes,” he says.

The expert calls the agreement a compromise between the US and the EU. The proposal for a minimum 15 percent tax is a variation on GILTI legislation that has been in effect for four years in the United States. “But on the eve of the planned increase in the federal income tax rate from 21% to 28%, the elimination of low-tax regimes around the world requires the support of other large players,” he says. “On the other hand, Europeans get the opportunity to tax the revenues of such giants as Facebook. Google, and even in the absence of their physical location in the country. This task was supposed to be solved by digital taxes, but they were not unified and met with strong objections from the United States. ” “The main beneficiaries are the budgets of the United States and OECD countries. And large multinational companies and, obviously, the consumers of their services will pay for this – you don’t need to be a genius to predict the rise in prices for the services of Internet giants, ”said Mr. Vakhitov.

Travel: soon a change for Belgians going to France

Change is looming: Markus Schopp is flying to England – Bundesliga today

“He should have a look at it, he’ll be back on Tuesday. Then we’ll see, ”says Hartberg chairman Erich Korherr.

Schopp recently extended his contract with the Bundesliga club, but it seems unlikely that he will remain. “We will find a solution,” emphasizes Korherr.

The timing is, of course, anything but ideal, as TSV Hartberg is in the middle of preparing for the new Bundesliga season. However, Korherr has not yet made contact with potential successors: “That would not be fair to Markus.”
