    Trump says India, China and Russia don't take care of their air Washington -- US President Donald Trump has alleged that India, China and Russia do not take care of their air, while America does, noting that he withdrew from the one-sided, energy-destroying Paris climate accord which would have made it a non-competitive nation . Trump, in his address on energy and the Permian Basin in Midland, Texas on Wednesday, said that by imposing these punishing restrictions -- and beyond restrictions the Washington radical-left, crazy Democrats would also send countless American jobs, factories, industries to China and to other foreign...

    Police arrested a 32-year-old man in the Paris no-go suburbs of Seine-Saint-Denis after a failed attempt to attack party-goers while he was armed with a blade and a semi-automatic rifle. The attempted attack took place at around 7 am on Sunday in the commune of Blanc-Mesnil as several people were leaving a party. The witnesses say the man yelled Allah hu Akbar! and came at them with a knife and rifle. But he was quickly hit by a man driving a car, who is said to have acted out of instinct to stop the armed attacker, Le Parisien reports.

    Fugitive Ghislaine Maxwell is reportedly hiding out in a luxury flat close to billionaire Jeffrey Epstein's 7million Paris apartment. The socialite has apparently escaped to her native France as the FBI continues to investigate links between her and convicted paedophile Epstein, as reported by The Sun. Maxwell has rarely been seen in public since 2016 and rumours have circulated frequently since then on her whereabouts.

    PARIS Tear gas choked Paris streets as riot police faced off with protesters setting fires Tuesday amid growing global outrage over George Floyds death in the United States, racial injustice and heavy-handed police tactics around the world. French protesters took a knee and raised their fists while firefighters struggled to extinguish multiple blazes as a largely peaceful, multiracial demonstration degenerated into scattered tensions. Several thousand people defied a virus-related ban on protests to pay homage to Floyd and Adama Traore, a French black man who died in police custody. Electric scooters and construction barriers went up in flames, and...

    The France Soir newspaper published an article “COVID-19 : Marseille 5 – Paris 1 juste les chiffres” – using a soccer score analogy, making Marseille de clear winner over Paris when it comes to fighting the coronavirus. While the numbers for Paris are clearly bad, those for New York and Montreal are even worse, as we analyze in the second section of the article. COVID mortality is found to be 5 times higher in Paris than in Marseille: 751 deaths per million in Paris, versus 147 deaths per million in Marseille. The table compiled by France Soir shows...

    WHEN France begins lifting its coronavirus lockdown next week some of the busiest traffic lanes in Paris will be reserved for cyclists in a bid to limit crowds on public transport.

The mayor had announced last week that the Rue de Rivoli, one of the main thoroughfares through the heart of the capital, would be only for bikes...

    Here we go again. And as you will see from the Western media reports, the French authorities will be blamed. Islamophobia and racism, right. These Muslim immigrants should be applauding healthcare workers, first responders, etc.; instead, they are tearing up and tearing down society. In Eurabia, Islamic scholar Bat Yeor explained how decades ago, European governments agreed not to press Muslim immigrants to assimilate. What did they think was going to happen? Tension with the police erupted again on Monday evening in Villeneuve-la-Garenne near Paris, where a motorcycle accident involving the police had provoked the first clashes with residents two...

    As the novel coronavirus rapidly spread worldwide and concern continues to grow, a number of international sporting events have been impacted, including several professional running events. One of the first major events to see a shift in schedule was the Tokyo Marathon at the beginning of March; the marathon was only held for the elites, and the non-elite runners were given entry to the 2021 race. With the global crisis becoming more dire, race organizers have proactively started to reschedule or altogether cancel races set to take place in the next few weeks, due to the uncertainty of the viruss...

    **SNIP** Radical optimism echoes an organization the authors formed, Global Optimism, to combat pessimism and denialism. Endless abundance is the sense that there are resources enough for all, to combat competitiveness and tribalism. Radical regeneration means caring for both nature and oneself, to combat exploitation and burnout. Then the authors get to action. We have discussed the mindset everyone needs to cultivate in order to meet the global challenge of the climate crisis, but on its own, this is not enough, they write. For change to become transformational, our change in mindset must manifest in our actions. **SNIP** 1 Let...

    It is hard to understand Iran Supreme Leader Khameneis blunder in attacking the US Embassy in Baghdad. He either believed Trump was weakened by his impeachment, as western liberal Media breathlessly and continuously reported, or he might have been misled by John Kerrys incompetent advice (apparently Kerry met again with Khameneis emissaries in Paris just few weeks ago). Whatever the reasons, his goal of triggering a limited war with America to rally his people around the regime has failed miserably. (my emphasis.)

    The restoration of the Paris cathedral has reached a critical stage, in which steel beams need to be installed to stabilize the structure and a tower of scaffolding fused in the fire in April has to be removed. The scaffolding, which was erected before the blaze, must be treated for lead contamination before specialistssuspended aloft by ropescan cut it away. Once this perilous step is complete, they will construct a temporary roof, called the grand parapluie (or large umbrella), over the nave. No final decision has yet been made about the design of the cathedrals lost spire.
