The president of the commission of laws denigrates an article of the Obs.

Thursday morning, Jean-Jacques Urvoas, MP PS in the Finistère and Chairman of the parliamentary delegation for intelligence, was invited to France Inter 7/9. He came to present his report on the shortcomings of our country in the fight against economic espionage. Gold, in this regard, that a listener asked about our record with ago two weeks concerning a secret centre of Chinese plays in the annex to the Embassy of China in Chevilly-Larue. Mr. Urvoas said while the article includes number of errors and cited two. In reality, it is the Member who utters two astonishing untruths. LireComment watch China from the Parisian suburbs he says first that China did what she wants in Chevilly-Larue as an Embassy is an offshore location, that French law does not apply. What is wrong. Despite that believe the boeotians, an Embassy is not a country and this extension since the end of,. 19th century. Saying that the Chinese Embassy is China, Mr. Urvoas is mistaken as a student for first years (he who taught law,.). An Embassy is an inviolable territory but French laws apply. And so including those prohibiting spying on communications. He said then that China doesn’t have to ask the French authorities for permission for the placement of antennas on the roof of its Embassy. False again. The Vienna convention of 1961 stipulates black on white, in article 27, that a diplomatic mission cannot install and use a radio station radio and with the consent of the receiving State. Remember for those who do not know that Mr. Urvoas, whose legal knowledge are so uncertain, chaired the commission of laws.  Vincent Jauvert.

Greece at the threshold of a political crisis.

For the first time the election of the president, who in Greece plays a rather ceremonial role, could result in a political crisis, written Thursday 18 December the daily Nezavisimaya gazeta. Greek MEPs face a choice: vote for the candidate of the ruling coalition and support the policy of the premier Antonis Samaras, or opt for radical changes: the resignation of the Government, the legislative advance and possibly a radical’s line policy. In anticipation of the vote, the Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras stressed that a quick election could stabilize the economic and social situation in Greece and would contribute to consolidate the society. The leaders of the bipartisan parliamentary coalition (the leader of the party’s Center-right new democracy Antonis Samaras and the leader of the centre-left PASOK Evangelos Venizelos party) have thus advanced the candidacy of former European environment Stavros Dimas, 70 years, as the political centre-right moderate man is a relatively consensual figure – knowing that the parties in the coalition to the power hold 155 seats in Parliament. In the first round, according to the Greek legislation, Dimas needed to win two-thirds of the votes of MPs (200 out of 300). According to the law, if the candidate does not get the 200 votes in the first round, a second was organized a few days later. Finally, a third final stage takes place if the candidate still fails to ensure the support of 200 members: the threshold is reduced to 180 votes. Currently the members of the opposition, including members of the Coalition of the radical left Syriza, are ready to vote against any candidate to cause the resignation of the Government. According to the forecasts of Yuri Kvachine of the Institute of world economy and international relations (IMEMO) in Moscow, the likelihood of an election of the president in the first round was extremely low: Dimas could get 170 votes at best, if the 155 members of the ruling coalition had benefited from the support of independent members. According to the expert, it is indeed likely that Dimas is not elected President. What would be the consequences of legislative advance for the Greece? According to surveys Syriza, led by the young politician Alexis Tsipras, is an undisputed leader: the coalition advocates the revision of agreements between the Greece and the international troika of creditors (IMF, ECB, European Commission) and the debt relief Greek by the EU. Syriza is followed by new democracy, then PASOK or the Communist Party. Other political movements, in the best case, will pass the 5% barrier. If Syriza won victory – and she has great chances – the situation would be complicated. Tsipras party did probably will not be enough votes to form a coalition on its own and it must deal with PASOK or new democracy. The likelihood of a political crisis in Greece is therefore high, concludes the expert. . You can click this http://autopomoc.biz to read extra on this interesting topic.

The life expectancy in the world reached 71.5 years.

The average lifespan in the world has increased six years since 1990, according to a large study published Thursday in "The Lancet". Article (s) partner (s) the population grows less quickly, the birth rate marks the pasJusqu’ where to extend life expectancy?The life expectancy of the world’s population has increased an average of six years since 1990, according to a large statistical study published Thursday in the medical journal British ‘The Lancet’. The average life expectancy rose from 65.3 years in 1990 to 71.5 years in 2013, according to this analysis that incorporates statistical data provided by 188 countries. The life expectancy for men has increased an average of 5.8 years 1990-2013 while for females it increased more generously, averaging 6.6 years. "Progress in a large number of illnesses and injuries are good and even remarkable, but we can and must do even better," said the lead author of the study, Dr. Christopher Murray, Professor at the University of Washington in a statement released by ‘The Lancet ‘. In rich countries, it is the decline in deaths from cancers and cardiovascular diseases that allows to raise life expectancy, according to the researchers. In poor countries, progress can be explained primarily by the decline in deaths among infants and children, diarrhea or respiratory diseases. However, in children less than five years, respiratory infections, malaria and diarrhoea remain the leading causes of death and continue to kill nearly 2 million children aged 1 month to 5 years each year. Increase of diseases chroniquesLa for life expectancy upward trend hides a rise of certain diseases or disorders in the causes of death, especially cancers of the liver caused by hepatitis C (+ 125%), severe heart rate (+ 100%) disorders, diseases related to the consumption of drugs (+ 63%), chronic renal failure (+ 37%) and diabetes (+ 9%). "The huge increase in collective action and funding for major infectious diseases such as diarrhea, measles, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and malaria have had a real impact," believes Dr. Murray. "But this study shows that some major chronic diseases have been largely neglected and are on the rise, in particular health problems related to the drug, cirrhosis of the liver, diabetes and chronic renal failure," added the official. This study funded by the Gates Foundation, was achieved despite "major holes" in the data on the causes of death in some countries, in particular India, warns article. Source AFP.
