Alohomora! Harry Potter Exhibition Opens on 20th Anniversary of First Publication

Description

If you've ever wanted to step inside the magical world of Harry Potter, one new spell-binding exhibition may just be your ticket to Hogwarts. The British Library opened a new exhibit on Friday called 'Harry Potter: A History of Magic' to mark the 20th anniversary of the publication of 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.' The exhibit explores the world of Harry Potter with pictures, figures, and ornaments inspired by the book, but also delves into the real folklore and traditions which inspired JK Rowling.

  • 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.
