Because it interests me Vinvin I know long is its professional choices. Here is a boy who was copywriter 15 years ago and has left everything behind to start his company. This is a business leader who flourished a few years ago and has yet to leave everything behind to US2. Here is a boy who had no job two years ago and that has reinvented presenter and producer for France there is a 5 year sentence.
What Vinvin he thought before making risky career choices? At death, the regret, his desire to make the TV and of course this was going to think of his wife. In truth, at the time of change, we are all a little there, a little Vinvin all.

The end of the tax exemption for products purchased on the Internet in the United States approach. Widely advocated in the early days of trade online1 as a necessity to support a new form of distribution, this sacrosanct exemption seems anachronistic and unfair to many elected Republicans and Democrats.
The Senate has for the first time adopted by a large majority a text that would require large online retailers like Amazon2 and eBay3 to charge a local tax on 100% of their sales.
Fifty states would get the authority to require online sellers they take and pay back their fee, which varies from 2.9% to 7.5% depending on the state. An estimated $ 23 billion the amount of tax revenue that could share thousands of communities in the United States if all purchases were made on the Internet are taxed as ordinary transactions.
Brands such as Best Buy, a number of electronic distribution, are forced into radical restructuring because of the ruthless competition of online retailers
But the text of the Senate also approved by the White House to apply it is necessary that the House of Representatives vote on the same terms. But the conservative opposition to any form of new taxation is stronger than the Senate. However, the division of Republicans on this issue leads to the conclusion after a few amendments the lower house could end up in turn by eliminating the tax benefit.
Fight against the "Showrooming"
The abolition of the tax exemption is irrelevant to Amazon, which has already collect applicable taxes in many states where the retail giant has warehouses. But nevertheless the law seeks to combat "showrooming." This is the name given to the practice of selecting an article in a regular store after handling for better then buy online without paying the tax that would have applied in the traditional shopping.
Of retail giants like Borders, in the area of the library, have virtually disappeared in recent years due to competition from Amazon. Others, such as Best buy4, a number of electronic distribution, are forced into radical restructuring because of the ruthless competition of online retailers. Taxation of most Internet shopping is therefore to restore a more level playing field between these two forms of commerce.

After the flag, the bad blood between the CGT and the CFDT. Three weeks after CGT militants set fire to a CFDT flag during a demonstration against Lille agreement securing employment, the penalty is decreased by the voice of Lawrence Berger, the secretary general of the CFDT . Sanction to the strong symbolism as the reformist union now excludes scrolling on May 1st alongside his counterpart headed by Thierry Lepaon.
Tuesday RTL, Laurent Berger did not mince his words, explaining this choice almost unheard of by the "period of tension" caroissante crossed by two confederations. "Our members do not want to insult a week and go with the CGT show another week," said Laurent Berger, referring to conventions in Thierry Lepaon in Toulouse last week in which the union was " vilified. "
Berger wants a frank explanation
Both unions, who marched side by side in recent years during the traditional parade May 1, disagree on the agreement of 11 January on the labor market, signed by the CFDT and the CGT rejected, the transctription the law must be considered by the National Assembly next week. Since then, tension has grown up between the first two French trade union confederations, statements médiatiquesent provocations between militants. If FO is returned long been one of her hand, CGT-CFDT divorce definitely mark the end of the holy alliance between unions, sealed at Woerth reform pensions.
After the incident of the flag, Laurent Berger called his future alter ego Thierry Lepaon to "condemn these acts and take appropriate action." That the new leader of the CGT did not, at least not publicly. What raise again the voltage a notch to Toulouse congress of the CGT, the CFDT militants during which have been subjected to insults from "comrades" CGT "traitor and renegade collaboration "in the words of Lawrence shepherd.
As if to mark the fracture present, the number one CFDT, which calls yet Thierry Lepaon a frank explanation, noted a "disagreement between two types of unionism, a unionism which takes its responsibilities in an extremely complicated and unionism which considers that it is the state to its place. " A pike over to Thierry Lepaon pleads for his side to a "trade unionism together."

This is the boost that we did not see it coming in the recovery plan presented Thursday to the building Alfortville by François Hollande. Low-income households whose income does not exceed € 35,000 annual net can receive assistance from 1350 euros to better insulate their homes. An open for two years, from April until mid-2015. This bonus will be financed by drawing 500 million appropriations for future investment program initiated with the large loan.
For the rest, almost everything was already known. Attempt to stop the bleeding of jobs in the building and build 500,000 homes per year not to mention the energy renovation of 500,000 apartments or houses old François Hollande will play on two levers: a boost fiscal first. "The rate of VAT on social housing will be lowered to 5%, said the president. This measure will apply to all deliveries will take place from 1 January 2014. "Clearly, the operations already launched today. The government expects that it will build 22,500 additional social housing per year. This measure relates to the construction but also the social housing renovation cost 660 million to the state.
Other additional expenses even if the amount is not yet known: "We are going to define an appropriate tax return for institutional investors in housing," said the president. To initiate movement, CDC (Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations) will launch the construction of 10,000 housing intermediate this year. In contrast, the reduction in VAT to 5% for energy renovation, expected by professionals, is not on the agenda. For reasons of budgetary rigor.
Orders this summer
All other actions will not cost a penny. Their goal? Build faster. For example by hunting against abusive use building permits or suspending for two years the standards for construction. Two patients treated with orders issued this summer. Other tracks followed by the government: to promote the conversion of offices into housing or help build earlier in the tense areas. Solutions in his time the Fillon government had also planned.

Rates that are chilling! SNCF benefits greatly winter vacation: passengers being more numerous trains fill up faster, and therefore no need for the railway company to lower its prices to attract consumers. Quite the contrary. This is shown by a study that compared the CLCV several trips during the winter holidays.
For TGV Paris-Annecy, leaving today, the traveler will pay on average a train ticket 29% more expensive than if he had gone three weeks later, except during holidays. And even discount rates are unattractive during the holidays: it is twice more expensive than normal period. For CLCV, "this premium practiced for large departures on holidays is a strong manifestation of yield management SNCF tariffs" – a practice of modulation rates depending on demand, Le Figaro détaillait recently.
Better from Paris
The study also reveals disparities between the capital and the province. A mileage comparable to the "lowest fare" of the train, from Paris costs on average 32.5% less than from Lyon or Toulouse. This difference is 9% for the "average rate". "There is a certain logic to this, the study notes. Trains leaving Paris are probably more travelers, allowing to better absorb fixed costs and offer a lower price. " The consumer demand that this gap Paris / other cities is reduced.
Another lesson cards Large Families "-30%" offer small reductions compared to other cards. In fact, it is 21% for the cheapest rate and the average rate against 26% for senior card and a little less than 30% for the 12-25 card. "A criticism is" as CLCV suspect that SNCF will "direct families towards its subscription plans (+ child) whose initial subscription is paid and therefore induce greater loyalty."
Complicated reservations to ski
Finally, the survey denounces possibility for reservation "difficult" for ski resorts. Taking the example of a journey from Paris to Moutiers (Savoy), it finds that three months before the departure of several trains scheduled on Saturday morning (March 2), they are almost all already complete. This may seem surprising when you consider that the SNCF advises its passengers to book their tickets three months in advance, supposedly at the opening of reservations. And "operator maintains this topic some uncertainty about when opening bookings and also called users to be vigilant," warned the CLCV wondering if buyers packages train and ski rental are not privileged on reservations made in advance.

Nearly 700 million for a vaccination campaign against H1N1 failed. After the previous disaster of 2009, the Court of Auditors looked at the request of the Finance Committee of the National Assembly, the national immunization strategy. Its balance sheet, it releases this Wednesday, is not tender.
The results, first, are "poor" and France is among the worst performers in relation to comparable countries. According to the official target, 95% of the population must be vaccinated against tuberculosis, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis or. In fact, it is not possible to verify or, when statistics exist, it appears that the goal is only partially achieved, as the vaccination of children aged 2 to 6 years.
Analyzed by disease, the vaccination rate has "mixed results." Good for diseases traditional compulsory vaccination, "but not enough to measles" and "very poor" for hepatitis B. Another example is the rate of seasonal flu vaccination "is below target in all target groups," whether people with long-term conditions (ALD) or more than 65 years.
400 million for vaccines
If vaccination patina in France, it is not lack of resources, said the Court. Nearly 400 million are affected by the reimbursement via insurance (excluding the costs of medical consultations). Alas, this envelope is poorly distributed. The Court regrets that such vaccination was the only strategy used in the fight against cervical cancer of the uterus, at the expense of organized screening yet recommended by the High Health Authority. Result, "the higher financial costs" and "worsening health inequalities," Social Security is paying only partially vaccinated.
More broadly, "rationality" reimbursement rates for vaccines "is not always explicit" and leads to "inconsistencies". The Court thus challenges the assumption of 100% of vaccine against seasonal influenza and measles. "An allotment of means" who does not also provide sufficient incentive for patients to comply. Should also review the pricing of vaccines, Sages advise the rue Cambon. Clearly, negotiated down with manufacturers who enjoy a little competition, contrary to market the drug.

In the strict sense of family allowances, France is far from being the most generous regime of developed countries. Even when compared with Germany, which displays a much lower fertility rate of 1.3 against almost 2 in France. In Germany, a family receives 184 euros per month, regardless of their income level, the first child. In France, it takes a minimum of two to reach 126 euros in aid, but with a larger bonus for families.
747 euros in 2010 with annual paid for a child, or 2% of the average wage, France is according to OECD calculations behind most European countries: Germany, Austria, Ireland and Switzerland head exceed 2 000 euros yearly while Belgium, the Netherlands and the Nordic countries – are famous for their welfare state – over 1100 euros and finally Italy € 800 but tested. In this panorama, Southern Europe, based much on family solidarity, is the poor relation in the image of Greece (99 euros annual allocations), Spain (291 euros) and Portugal (568 euros). This trend should be reinforced with various austerity measures last two years. Comparing with the Anglo-Saxon countries – Australia, Canada, Great Britain, United States – France is also below, if it is only allocations depend on the level of family income.
But these benefits are only part of family policy which must be added the tax benefits – in France the family quotient – and services (childcare, childcare places, schooling …).
In this respect, France is almost world champion. Taking another assessment of the OECD, Paris spent 4% of GDP in 2009 in favor of the family, against 2.6% for the average of the richest countries, 3% in Germany and only 1% for South Korea, the least generous state. "Most countries have increased their spending between 2007 and 2009 there has been a stabilization due to the crisis," says Willem Adema, OECD economist in charge of family policy. Moreover, Ireland and the United Kingdom passed a consequence of the crisis, ahead of France in 2009. "This is due to a greater number of families with low incomes who are entered into the system, tested in these two countries," said the expert.
The National exception quotient familial
A unique feature of the French system is the important part – 0.7% of GDP, about 14 billion euros – which finances the tax benefits. Basic principle, the family quotient allows tax relief from the first child – a half share in the declaration – capped at 2336 euros per year per child. "Only Germany and the United States have a similar system," said Willem Adema. In Germany, there is an allowance on income 7,008 euros per year per child. The most significant difference between the two countries – and more generally where France stands from abroad – is in services, which account for almost 2% of GDP.
Comparative advantage which must be added parental leave open until 3 years of the child and allowing France to display one of the fertility rates higher in westernized countries, the second in Europe behind Ireland. "If France has a high level of family policies, it can be even more effective," said the OECD expert, suggesting two tracks including: préscolariser children earlier, between 12 and 18 months, as do the Nordic countries . And make the system more redistributive which "relies too much on tax benefits and thus benefits especially for families paying taxes. It must be open to lower income, "explains he finally.

January Fasen is the ideal suspect. The name of this Dutch trader arrived Wednesday in the heart of the investigation into the scandal of horsemeat Romanian dishes found in "pure beef" in Europe. This leader Draap Trading Ltd.. recognized in The Guardian have bought through this company, horsemeat slaughterhouses both Romanians involved in the case and have sold a portion Spanghero transformer French meat including providing Findus and Comigel. The man defends himself but in trying to get the "ore horse," a mixture of lean, fat and collagen chopped for beef.
The bad reputation of January Fasen casts doubt on the legitimate vehement denials. The Dutch television channel NOS recalled that the man has already been convicted in January 2012 for buying hundreds of tons of horse meat in South America and have sold to two buyers under the French label "beef". The trader had falsified documents and then pushed up to the deception labeled "halal" on certain lots. This time, the meat was transported via a company bearing his name, Fasen Meat Trading BV, and that of an accomplice, Windmeijer Meat Trading BV. The Dutch authorities had then tried unsuccessfully to recover 3.8 million of alleged ill-gotten gains made by these companies.
Draap an opaque society
The Minister for Consumer Affairs, Benoît Hamon, said Wednesday in Brussels today that he would "get more information" about the company Draap – whose name means horse upside Dutch. The greater opacity rule in effect on this company based in Limassol, Cyprus. According to The Guardian, the sole shareholder of an offshore company is based in the British Virgin Islands, Hermes Guardian Ltd., Which owns shares in a dozen other companies, Cyprus, Russia and Panama.
A cold Dutch manager has meanwhile identified January Fraser, one of his "small" customers, as the owner of the company Draap. It operates according to him via a postal box at Scholten, Belgium. He confirmed that the meat of this company, mainly horse had passed through one of its refrigerated warehouses in Breda, the Netherlands, and health services inspectors came to inspect Wednesday.
January Fasen not deny these purchases and take advantage of the media forum hosted by The Guardian to defend its Romanian suppliers. "When they sell beef is beef. No worries. When they sell the horse is the horse. There has never, ever had a horse sold as beef. I was 100% sure to buy the horse. We sold in France as well as Spanghero customers in Belgium and Holland as the horse. There is no problem. Someone made a mistake and it is definitely not us. "
Le Parisien also reveals Thursday invoices confirming that the horse meat labeled as such has been purchased by the company Spanghero Draap. The French company, however, assures the daily that "all bills affected batches were sent to officers DGCCRF" and that she "never received bills Draap Trading on horse meat."

The government now finds itself confronted with a double social pressure. The first comes from the street and speak again this week, with the demonstration plant employees Tuesday threatened with closure. The second, quieter and more subdued, is not less strong: it is that exerted upon him by the social partners. Culmination of their efforts, the transcript in the law of the agreement on securing employment signed on January 11 between unions (excluding FO and CGT) and employers. All weekend, teams Labour Minister Michel Sapin, put the final touches to the text to be sent Monday to the State Council. And, under pressure from employers, anxious to see the agreement reached in the snatch transcribed in the state.
After threatening Thursday night, to withdraw its signature text, the MEDEF has softened his speech last few hours. Laurence Parisot and Michel Sapin met Saturday afternoon on the phone and the boss of bosses seems to have obtained certain assurances on a few key points. "Most of the conversations between our teams and the Department of Labour are conducted by telephone and as we have not received the text properly we can not fully lift the mortgage on our signature," warns However, one in the entourage of the president of MEDEF.
Two points were still considered Sunday night, as a casus belli employer side. The first concerns the terms of employee representation on boards of directors. The government's proposals remained rather vague. The text could move towards employee representation on the board of directors of each institution and not only within the parent opposes what employers. The second reason for concern, the MEDEF, is Article 1 provides that companies commit to participate in the financing of mutual complementary to all their employees. The Government and social partners want some that is designated by the mutual sector. The MEDEF, it calls for removal of this designation clause and the free choice of leaders.
Give pledges left
Beyond these technical discussions between the executive and many employers show a deep mutual mistrust. "The government has done in recent weeks several positive gestures towards businesses because it is well aware that, without us, it will not solve the problem of rising unemployment," says a senior employer. "But on the other hand, he finds himself under increasing pressure to pay some of the organizations and its left wing that it will give good wages sooner or later." CGT also continues to put pressure " with this agreement, employers have secured dismissals. (…) Members must not transcribe it into law, "said the leader of the Central Thierry Lepaon at JDD.
Bosses fear that the discussion in the Assembly of legislation securing employment, which will begin in mid-March, is an opportunity for bidding. This is the reason why he wants to keep the text as intact as possible for the moment. "The fact that members of the majority have obtained that this is not the chairman of the PS that is rapporteur of the text shows that they do not intend to vote without amendment" is concerned- Do we Grove Street. "During our hearing in the Assembly, members told us they wanted to return to the intermittent contract, which constitutes a real breakthrough for SME," says Jean-Eudes du Mesnil, secretary general of the CGPME . The employers' organization has always said she would not sign it also definitely agree that if the text is taken up strictly. The government has warned.
