  • Samsung Heir Off To Prison Once Again

    The leadership at massive tech giant Samsung has been plunged into uncertainty. CNN reports Samsung's vice chairman Lee Jae-yong is going back to prison once again, after being found guilty of embezzlement and bribery. The Seoul High Court in South Korea sentenced the Samsung heir to 2 1/2 years on Monday. In 2017, Lee was found guilty of bribery and other corruption charges. He was sentenced to five years in prison at the time. However, he strolled out of the slammer in less than a year. That's when an appeals court threw out some of the charges and suspended his sentence.

  • 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.
