  • Thin-skinned Xi Jinping Quashed $37 Billion IPO After Jack Ma Dissed Chinese Government

    A week before the fintech Ant Group went public, Chinese President Xi Jinping called the proceedings to a halt. Business Insider reports Xi stopped the historic $37 billion initial public offering after its founder, Jack Ma, criticized government leaders. At a conference in Shanghai, Ma made incendiary comments that didn't go down well with the president or other government officials. Ma dismissed global banking rules, saying they got in the way of innovation. As large private businesses accumulate wealth and power in the communist nation, Xi has displayed a low tolerance for them as they threaten his authority.

  • 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.
