French court to hear App Store complaint in September - General Discussion Discussions on AppleInsider Forums

French court to hear App Store complaint in September

The case will be heard by a Paris commercial court on Sept. 17, 2021,
Reutersreported Wednesday. Although it's unlikely to result in significant fines, the court could force Apple to change some of its contractual terms in the country.
In France, local law allows the country's finance minister to sue companies if abusive business practices are found in contracts. The complaint was levied against Apple following a three-year probe by France's CGCCRF consumer fraud watchdog.
France's finance minister, Bruno Le Maire, last year accused Apple of being part of a small group of tech giants that are"reaping most of the profits" in the country.

Macron calls Europe's COVID-19 vaccination successful
24 Jun 2021, 06:37 GMT+10
Paris [France], June 24 (ANI/Sputnik): Europe is successfully conducting the vaccination campaign against COVID-19, French President Emmanuel Macron said on Wednesday.
The European Union kicked off the bloc-wide immunization campaign in late December.
"Our priority today, first of all, is to continue to get out of the pandemic. I am here to defend the work that we have done at the European level, to defend your work and the work of the commissioners involved in vaccination in Europe. Europe is conducting successful vaccination [program]," Macron told reporters before a meeting with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen at the Elysee Palace.

Step up climate action or risk failure at key Cop26 summit, Government warned

Card image cap

The Government must rapidly step up action on climate change – or risk undermining “global Britain” and success at key Cop26 talks this year, its advisers have warned.
Policies are urgently needed to make homes cosier and heated with clean heat pumps, ensure new houses are energy-efficient and can cope with heatwaves, drive the shift to electric vehicles, and encourage people to eat less meat.
They are just some of 200 recommendations from the advisory Climate Change Committee, which warns that the Government is not delivering on the ambitious targets it has set to tackle global warming.
Its latest progress reports to Parliament – one on reducing emissions and one on adapting to climate change – show the UK is off track to meet commitments made under the global Paris climate deal to cut emissions by 2030 and legal carbon-cutting targets for the late 2020s and 2030s.

Canada's plan to reduce emissions is lacking, watchdog says

Card image cap

Canada still has a lot of work to do before it can exceed its targets to reduce emissions by 40 to 45 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030, as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promised in April, said Canada’s budget watchdog on Wednesday.
The report from the parliamentary budget officer (PBO) says increasing the carbon price to $170 per tonne of greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions, and tightening the rules for Canada’s largest industrial emitters, would reduce GHGs by nearly 100 megatonnes — from 674 to 578 megatonnes — by 2030.
Additional “non-price”-related measures that have already been announced — such as retrofitting buildings, planting trees, and changing how land is used — should be good enough to reduce emissions to 468 megatonnes, which is below the target in the Paris Agreement of 511 megatonnes of GHG emissions by 2030.

RSW condemns closure of Hong Kong's Apple Daily
24 Jun 2021, 08:18 GMT+10
Paris [France], June 24 (ANI): Reporters Without Borders (RSF), a France-based non-profit aimed at safeguarding the right to freedom of information, on Wednesday condemned the closure of Hong Kong's pro-democracy newspaper Apple Daily, following an intense crackdown by the government.
The newspaper said that its management decided to run its last print edition on Thursday. The directors of Next Digital, the 26-year-old tabloid-style newspaper's parent company, had decided the newspaper would cease all forms of publication on Saturday at the latest.
The moves come after another of its journalists was arrested under the Beijing-imposed National Security Law.

As we get older, sometimes our eyebrows start to vanish or fail to regrow from overplucking. I noticed in photos and on Zoom calls that my very blond, sun-bleached brows faded into my forehead. Unfortunately for me, fuller, darker eyebrows are in vogue right now, so I decided to look into various treatments to make them more prominent. I had heard about eyebrow microblading, which cuts your skin to place the pigment, but eyebrow lamination is a lot less invasive.

Les assises nationales de la protection de l'enfance se déroulent ce jeudi 24 juin à Nantes, l'occasion pour les professionnels et bénévoles de réfléchir sur les moyens d'améliorer les conditions de vie des enfants placés en foyer ou en famille d'accueil. Un projet de loi dans ce sens a d’ailleurs été présenté en conseil des ministres le 16 juin dernier et passera pour étude à l’Assemblée nationale le mois prochain. Mais les associations déplorent le fait qu’il n’y ait rien de prévu pour soutenir les anciens enfants placés.

Toulouse Vs Bordeaux : quelle est la meilleure ville ? (vu de Bordeaux...)
Sur les réseaux sociaux et sur les sites d'information, les matchs entre les deux capitales du Sud Ouest fleurissent.
Laquelle de Bordeaux ou de Toulouse s'impose comme "meilleure" ville ? On vous donne notre avis...
Attention article particulièrement (pas) objectif !
Publié le 11/03/2016 à 17h37

Mis à jour le 11/06/2020 à 03h59
Ce week-end,
les deux villes s'affrontent sur la pelouse, à la fois en foot avec le match entre le
TFC et les Girondins de Bordeaux et en rugby avec choc entre le
Stade Toulousain et l'UBB. 
La rivalité entre les deux grandes capitales du Sud-Ouest est légendaire. Si Bordeaux a longtemps était qualifiée de "Belle endormie", franchement un peu à la traîne derrière la dynamique et festive Toulouse, la donne a clairement changée depuis quelques années. 

Amazon becomes largest corporate buyer of renewable energy in U.S. - World News

2021-06-23 22:06:12 GMT2021-06-24 06:06:12(Beijing Time) Xinhua English
SAN FRANCISCO, June 23 (Xinhua) -- Amazon on Wednesday announced 14 new renewable energy projects in the United States, Canada, Finland and Spain to advance its goal to power 100 percent of company activities with renewable energy by 2025, five years ahead of the original target of 2030.
The new projects bring Amazon's total renewable energy investments to date to 10 gigawatts of electricity production capacity, enough to power 2.5 million U.S. homes.
Amazon is now the largest corporate buyer of renewable energy in the United States, the company said.
Amazon have a total of 232 renewable energy projects globally, including 85 utility-scale wind and solar projects and 147 solar rooftops on facilities and stores worldwide, according to the announcement.

Climate engineering research is essential to a just transition and sustainable future

The U.S. National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine have recently recommended an expansive federal research effort into climate engineering techniques. These proposed interventions, like creating a layer of microscopic droplets in the upper atmosphere or brightening low clouds over the ocean, aim to reduce solar radiation arriving at Earth’s surface. While only a temporary means of addressing climate change, these strategies could prevent some of the worst effects of climate change while more permanent methods, like reducing greenhouse gas emissions, are ramped up.
Through the past few decades of research, mostly with climate models, we are starting to gain an understanding of the benefits and risks of climate engineering. Climate engineering cannot perfectly cancel the climate effects of greenhouse gases. For many climate aspects (like temperature, rainfall and sea ice), climate engineering does a good job of offsetting climate change in most places, but not all. There would also likely be many serious sociopolitical risks, such as geopolitical negotiations about ideal climates or transboundary harms (real or perceived) and compensation for them. These risks need to be carefully studied and weighed so that decision-makers can decide whether and how climate engineering should be used as part of the overall response to climate change.
