'We have a lot of work to do' says climatologist as leaders pledge to protect planet's biodiversity


At least 50 countries have committed to protecting 30 per cent of the planet over the next decade to halt species extinction and address climate change, but the founder of the NewClimate Institute says none of these countries have short-term policies in place to be on track to meet these goals.

  • The Work From Home Future: How Technology Leaders are Revolutionizing Work

    Now more than ever, workers rely on technology to stay connected. In the last decade, where we work has rapidly evolved—from cubicles to open floor plans to the comfort of our own homes.

Although this rapid shift in how we're required to work presented a number of challenges, IT is now assessing what can remain the new normal. Join Forbes and Google Chrome Enterprise for an engaging conversation about what the future, boundless workplace means for IT. Tech leaders will come together to discuss the difficulties and learnings with managing their remote workforce, key ways to keep employees engaged during times of uncertainty, and how an increasingly virtual world is changing the roles of IT teams.

  • 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.
