  • Who Won The VP Debate?

    On Wednesday, the Vice Presidential Candidates Kamala Harris and Mike Pence debated. Who won the debate depends on which political party you belong to. Mike Pence insisted that despite 210,000 American deaths to COVID-19 President Trump and his administration have done an excellent job against the virus. HuffPo said Harris scored points by showing Pence's disconnection with the reality of the virus. Harris was also able to make points about health care that Joe Biden was not able to. Pence, for his part, tried to get Harris to answer simple questions about the Green New Deal and stacking of the Supreme Court.

  • Pence Will Debate Without Plexiglass

    The Vice Presidential Debate will be held Wednesday night. Over the weekend President Donald Trump was diagnosed with COVID. Debate organizers want to keep the candidates safe, so they suggested that VP Mike Pence and Kamala Harris sit with plexigass barriers around them. CNN reports that Pence does not want plexiglass barriers around him at the debate. A top Pence aide said the VP is rebuffing an announcement from the Commission on Presidential debates that the dividers would be used. "We have yet to hear medical evidence what the plexiglass is for," Pence's chief of staff Marc Short told CNN. The plexiglass dividers were announced by the commission on Monday night.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
