first_imgSome 40 percent of the around 1,000 people surveyed on April 29 and 30 said they approved of the president.His government faces growing criticism of its post-lockdown plans, in particular the move to start reopening schools next week even though students in hard-hit Italy and Spain will not return to school until September.Nearly 330 mayors in the greater Paris region have urged the government to delay the school openings, saying strict health measures including a limit of 15 students per class are proving difficult to implement.But parents worried about exposing their children to infection will not be forced to return them to school.”I understand their questions, their concerns,” Macron said, though he added: “For a child, being forced to stay home for two months is quite a traumatic experience.” He said his goal was “for all students who need to return, because they are falling behind, because their families are unable to help them study, because their parents have to work… that they are able to go to school”.Ministers are set to meet on Thursday to finalize post-lockdown measures and determine which regions are still facing critical risks, which could limit any easing of travel restrictions.Macron also urged people to continue with social distancing and other protections to limit the outbreak.”We don’t want to start sliding back after three weeks,” he said. “We’re going to limit major international travel, even during the summer holidays. We will remain among Europeans, and maybe we will have to limit that even more,” he said.Scores of events have already been cancelled and people arriving from outside Europe will need to spend two weeks in isolation, a blow to the tourism industry in the world’s most-visited country.”The virus is still here, we have not beaten it,” Macron said.The president’s approval rating slid six points down in a month, according to a poll by Ifop-Fiducial out on Tuesday. It is too early to say whether summer holidays will be possible, French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday, as the country prepares to ease a two-month coronavirus lockdown.School and business closures and stay-at-home orders imposed in mid-March will begin to be lifted from May 11, but businesses like cafes and bars will remain closed and people will not be allowed to travel more than 100 kilometers from their homes.Macron said in a televised interview that officials should know by early June if France has averted a new flare-up of COVID-19, as the country’s death toll rose to 25,531 on Tuesday.center_img Topics :last_img read more

More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this homeless than 1 hour agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investorless than 1 hour agoA contemporary kitchen with a nod to the past.A central hallway passes two bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes and access through double doors to the veranda. The hallway then opens to a study/library with built-in shelving and an original fireplace. Adjoining this space is the house’s main bedroom, including a walk-in wardrobe and access to a bathroom with a separate bath and shower.To the rear of the level is a recently renovated kitchen with an island benchtop, industrial-sized sink, stainless steel appliances, breakfast bar and timber-finished cabinetry.Near the kitchen is an open-plan living and dining space, with bi-fold doors opening to a covered veranda with garden views. The home has been opened up to allow for open plan living.Back inside, floating stairs lead down to the residence’s ground floor, with the staircase adjacent to double-storey glass panels that have been installed to allow for maximum natural light. The lower level includes a rumpus room with a built-in entertainment unit, undercroft storage and two utility rooms with modern ensuites and walk-in wardrobes.Bi-fold doors open the rumpus room out to a covered deck and backyard surrounded by hedges and trees.Other features of the pre-war house include a laundry, airconditioning and a double garage. Agent Brandon Wortley of Ray White New Farm said the residence offered a genuine sense of comfort and warmth with a versatile layout to suit multiple buying demographics. Wooden floors have a charm all their own. The rear of the home has ample family living space.“An unassuming and quaint streetscape masks the true size of the home, with the rear extension offering ample family living and a delightful northeast facing veranda,” said Mr Wortley, who was marketing the home with Nicholas Given.“This is a classic family home that ticks all the boxes while providing an abundance of character.”last_img read more

first_imgAn epidemic of transgender children is Safe Schools’ legacyHerald Sun 16 April 2017Family First Comment: Bravo Miranda Devine for calling the programme out. Wish we had similar commentators in NZ!THREE years after it was launched by the Abbott government, the insidious Safe Schools program is to be axed in NSW and replaced with a real anti-bullying program.Kudos to Rob Stokes, the only education minister in the nation honourable enough to tackle the sexual indoctrination program loathed by most parents and defended to the death by fanatical education bureaucrats.“Bullying is a problem, whether you’re being bullied because you’re struggling with your sexuality or being fat or wearing glasses,” said an education source. “All this nonsense about gender fluidity has nothing to do with bullying.”Funding has been allocated for a new program, expected to be ready by Term 3.But incalculable damage already has been done by teaching children that gender and sexuality is fluid, that heterosexuality is not the norm, and that sex is arbitrarily assigned by a doctor at birth.One consequence has been an epidemic in “transgender” children presenting to medical clinics since the advent of Safe Schools in June 2014.Referrals for gender services to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, have tripled. Melbourne Royal Children’s Hospital had 250 children last year presenting with “gender dysphoria”, distress experienced because you feel you were born the wrong sex.The NSW Education Department reports a “spike” in transgender students, including a four-year old in kindergarten this year “who has identified as transgender”.Official statistics are tightly held but, anecdotally: one public school in Sydney’s eastern suburbs has five transgender children, according to the relative of a student; a regional NSW government Safe School had five transgender students at the start of last year, according to a former teacher; a Safe School in outer Sydney had 5 or 6 “transgender” children last year in Year 8, all girls, according to a concerned teacher. “Safe Schools definitely had something to do with all this,” he says. “We are losing this fight… very badly”.One teacher has spoken to parents who, “suddenly received a note from their 14-year-old daughter claiming that she is trans and wants to be called a new name.” But, after her parents moved her to a non-Safe School, “she is largely over the confusion now”.Last year a 15-year-old child known as “Lincoln” had both breasts removed at a Sydney hospital with the permission of the Family Court in order to “transition” to the male sex. Born female, Lincoln decided in September, 2014, at age 13, to begin living as a boy and was prescribed puberty-blocking hormones the next year.One of the few doctors willing to criticise the “fashion in child surgical abuse” is Dr John Whitehall, Professor of Paediatrics at Western Sydney University, who questions the “massive intrusion into the minds and bodies of children… It’s a collective madness.”Most transgender children will, “grow out of it through puberty if parents do little more than gently watch and wait… The worst thing that can happen is the child is adopted as a poster child for the school.”With teachers being trained by Safe Schools to think gender is whatever you feel like, “it’s not surprising we’re seeing more kids responding to this propaganda and parents getting on board. It’s very hard for professionals to speak out.”READ MORE: http://www.heraldsun.com.au/rendezview/an-epidemic-of-transgender-children-is-safe-schools-legacy/news-story/085d5681f6bc3dae2357302ab2bee227last_img read more

first_imgJuan Manuel ‘Juanma’ Lillo is in Manchester ahead of his appointment as Pep Guardiola’s number two at Manchester City. Loading… As outlined by the Telegraph, the experienced coach and manager is in the English city ahead of confirmation with Diario Sport saying the contract will be one-year in length. Guardiola has been without an assistant since Mikel Arteta departed in December to become Arsenal manager while Lillo has left his managerial role at Qingdao Huanghai. As reported by Marca, former City captain and current Anderlecht player-manager Vincent Kompany and Real Sociedad coach were both approached about the position.Advertisement However, the English champions have now turned to Lillo – who has formerly coached Real Oviedo, Real Zaragoza and Real Sociedad among many other clubs – who has been a significant influence on Guardiola’s coaching career. Pep Guardiola put his players through their paces this weekend. Read Also: Sterling calls for more black managers in football Lillo said of the former Barcelona boss in 2012 that “Guardiola is like my son”, while Guardiola travelled to Mexico in 2006 to play under Lillo at Dorados de Sinaloa so that he could learn from his tactical approach. Lillo, 54, was last in Spanish football as assistant to Jorge Sampaoli at Sevilla – having previously been his number two with the Chilean national team – and has since managed at Atletico Nacional and Vissel Kobe.

first_imgGarry Monk has insisted Swansea are a “perfectly run club” after being taken to the Court of Arbitration for Sport by FC Utrecht over Michel Vorm’s transfer to Tottenham. The Dutch club confirmed on Thursday they will take the case to CAS in Switzerland but Swansea, who had a FIFA ruling over the issue in their favour earlier this year, say they have done nothing wrong over the Vorm transfer. “From our side everything is fine and I’m sure the club has followed everything to the letter,” Swansea manager Monk said at his pre-match press conference ahead of the Barclays Premier League visit of Everton on Saturday. “But t hose issues will be left to the club and not the footballing side with myself. “I’m not worried. We’re a perfectly run club and the decision earlier in the season from FIFA showed it was all okay. “I think that proves everything, and if they (Utrecht) want to pursue it that will be left to the chairman and the board and the administration side to deal with it. “It’s not really a focus for me, it’s up to the club and the chairman to deal with.” Utrecht general manager Wilco van Schaik said in August 2014 that Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins had told him Vorm had gone to Tottenham “for free”. Schaik told BBC Wales: “That’s unbelievable and unacceptable. Michel is a very reliable goalkeeper in the Premier League. “He is 30-years-old, in the prime of his life. He still had a two-year contract and has a good reputation. “Besides that, he’s a solid member of the Dutch squad. We want to have the 30 per cent as we agreed.” Swansea welcome Everton and their former manager Roberto Martinez on the back of their first defeat of the season at Watford last weekend. Monk accepts Swansea fell below the standards they had set in the opening weeks of the season when they beat Manchester United and drew at Chelsea during a four-game unbeaten start. “We never reached the levels we should have done to perform how we want,” Monk said. “We spoke about that when we came back in this week and I think it was a little bit of loss of focus of what we’re good at and the game plan we try to follow. “We just didn’t execute it and there’s no excuses from our end. “We’re aware of that and the players have responded well this week and hopefully we’ll get a reaction in the next game. “We’ve been good at home this season and we want to continue that.” Utrecht insist they are owed 30 per cent of whatever Swansea received for Vorm in July 2014, citing a sell-on clause in the deal when the goalkeeper arrived in Wales from the Netherlands three years earlier. Vorm left Swansea on the same day as defender Ben Davies, with forward Gylfi Sigurdsson going the other way, and Utrecht have questioned why Vorm, a Holland international with two years on his contract at the time, was given a zero value in the transactions.

first_img Press Association Sport understands that legal papers will be served on Mourinho this week as part of separate but connected claims against him and against the club. It means the Portuguese manager will have to appear in person at an employment tribunal unless the case is settled out of court beforehand. Under employment law, an individual can be personally liable for damages if victimisation or discrimination can be proved. Jose Mourinho is to be the subject of an individual legal claim from former Chelsea team doctor Eva Carneiro in addition to the action she is bringing against the club for constructive dismissal. Press Associationcenter_img The claim against Mourinho will be on the basis that he was instrumental in the actions against Carneiro in having her dropped from first-team duties and effectively demoted. The Employment Tribunal central office has been formally notified of both the claims, and Mourinho and Chelsea have 28 days to respond once legal papers have been received. If the cases were to end up in court, they would be likely to be heard early next year. The latest development will heap even more pressure on the 52-year-old who has seen his side lose six out of 11 matches in the Premier League so far to leave the reigning champions in 15th spot in the table. He was given a one-match stadium ban and £40,000 fine by the Football Association on Monday after admitting a misconduct charge for his behaviour towards match officials at half-time during Chelsea’s defeat by West Ham last month. Carneiro’s case against Mourinho personally would continue even if he were to leave Chelsea. The controversy over Carneiro goes back to August 8, the opening day of the season, when Mourinho criticised her and head physio Jon Fearn for going on to the pitch to treat Eden Hazard after being called on by referee Michael Oliver. The action meant that Chelsea were temporarily down to nine men against Swansea, and afterwards Mourinho called Carneiro and Fearn “impulsive and naive”. Carneiro did not appear on the bench again for first-team duties and is now seeking a claim for constructive dismissal after parting company with the club. The doctor’s lawyers said neither she nor they could comment as the case is sub judice. Chelsea did not respond when asked if they wished to comment. Mourinho was cleared of using discriminatory language towards her following an investigation by the FA, which caused further controversy after Carneiro revealed she had not been spoken to personally during the investigation, nor asked to provide any statement. The FA’s chief executive Martin Glenn and head of governance Darren Bailey are to be quizzed about the handling of the case by the governing body’s Inclusion Advisory Board later this month. The IAB’s chair Heather Rabbatts is under investigation by the FA following her comments criticising officials for not speaking to Carneiro in person during the Mourinho investigation. It has been reported that Sky Bet Championship club Charlton could be preparing an offer to Carneiro to work for them, but no one at the club has yet been available for comment. last_img read more
