“Kabullywood” : de la joie au milieu des ruines de Kaboul

Les talibans ont beau avoir quitté le pouvoir en Afghanistan, le quotidien des Afghans reste difficile. Les artistes n’ont pas vraiment leur place. Un jour à Kaboul, quatre étudiants passionnés d’art et de culture ont une idée très audacieuse : “monter une salle de concert”. Ils partent à la recherche d’un lieu. Une quête démarre à travers une capitale en ruine.Menaces de mortAu milieu des bâtiments fantômes, ils trouvent un cinéma abandonné, point de départ du film Kabullywood, en salles à partir du mercredi  6 février, porté à bout de bras par le réalisateur français Louis Meunier. Les quatre jeunes retroussent leurs manches pour rendre le lieu acceptable. Mais l’équipe de Kabullywood va vraiment rénover ce vieux cinéma. Le projectionniste joue son propre rôle. Les comédiens sont des Afghans exilés en France depuis plus de dix ans et travaillant au Théâtre du Soleil à Paris. Durant le tournage, il y a eu des menaces de mort, des bureaux vandalisés. Mais le film a vu le jour et les comédiens rêvent maintenant qu’il soit projeté un jour en Afghanistan.Le JT

Guinée : les autorités sanitaires en alerte après un cas mortel de fièvre de Lassa

Depuis le 1er février 2019, les autorités sanitaires guinéennes, qui redoutent une épidémie de fièvre de Lassa, ont pris des mesures pour informer la population des risques encourus en cas de contamination par cette maladie virale mortelle. Les symptômes et les modes de transmission sont identiques à ceux d’Ebola. L’infection humaine a lieu lors de contact avec des excrétions de rongeurs ou directement via le sang, les urines et d’autres liquides corporels d’une personne infectée. “On a activé nos équipes préfectorales d’alerte et de riposte de Mamou et de Kissidougou, qui se sont mises (au travail) pour rechercher s’il y a d’éventuels cas cachés et identifier tous les contacts” de l’homme décédé, a expliqué le directeur de l’Agence nationale de la sécurité sanitaire (ANSS), Sakoba Keita, à l’AFP.Cas isolé ou épidémie?Quelque 80 cas suspects de cette fièvre hémorragique virale ont été identifiés : une trentaine à Kissidougou et une cinquantaine à Mamou. L’ANSS s’est donné jusqu’au 22 février 2019 pour effectuer des contrôles, afin déterminer s’il s’agit d’“un cas isolé ou si c’est une épidémie”.Le gouvernement guinéen a tenu, pour sa part, à rassurer la population. Le ministre de la Santé, Edouard Niankoye Lamah, a rappelé que le pays disposait de médicaments pour faire face à cette maladie contagieuse et mortelle. Ce que l’ANSS a confirmé, indiquant que des stocks complémentaires avaient été commandés.La Guinée a les moyens de lutter “Cette fois-ci, on a les moyens de circonscrire cette maladie”, a assuré le patron de l’agence sanitaire. Aucun vaccin ne protège contre la fièvre hémorragique de Lassa, du nom d’une localité du nord du Nigeria. Environ 30% des personnes qui guérissent gardent des séquelles graves. Seule la prévention se révèle efficace. Il s’agit notamment de respecter les règles élémentaires d’hygiène, comme la conservation des céréales et des denrées alimentaires dans des boîtes hermétiques et résistantes aux rongeurs.Cette fièvre endémique avait fait, en 2018, 171 morts dans 23 Etats du Nigeria, malgré une intensification des mesures de lutte contre l’épidémie. Le 22 janvier 2019, le Centre de contrôle des maladies du Nigéria (NCDC) a déclaré un nouveau foyer de fièvre de Lassa. Bilan : 42 morts et 213 cas confirmés, selon l’Organisation mondiale de la Santé (OMS).

Neverland s’exporte près de Shangaï

Depuis le décès du King of Pop, le 25 juin dernier, Neverland jouit d’une popularité qui dépasse largement les frontières du sol américain. Après Christian Audigier, qui veut le racheter pour en faire un musée dédié à Bambi, une copie du ranch féérique de Michael Jackson est en construction en Chine…

Un Neverland «made in China» va bientôt voir le jour. D’après les médias locaux, l’île de Chongming (située sur le fleuve Yangtsé, à l’est de la Chine) sera bientôt dotée d’une réplique du parc d’attraction de Michael Jackson. D’après les informations du Shanghai Morning Post, la première phase du projet sera achevée d’ici un an sur une superficie de 667 000 mètres carrés.

Baptisé d’après le pays imaginaire de Peter Pan, le ranch californien, abritait, à l’époque où Michael Jackson y vivait, une véritable ménagerie, et un mini-parc d’attractions avec un manège, deux trains et une gare rappelant celle de Disneyland. Le coût total de la version chinoise est estimé à 100 millions de yuans (10,5 millions d’euros), alors que l’original a été estimé à 33 millions de dollars (23,7 millions d’euros) en 2006.

Construit en hommage au roi de la pop, décédé le 25 juin, le Neverland chinois sera doté d’un lac artificiel, d’un cinéma et d’un zoo. Des souvenirs liés au King of Pop achetés aux enchères y seront notamment exposés… Michael Jackson n’habitait plus Neverland (à Santa Barbara) depuis sa vente en 2008. Son domaine de plus de 10 km2, qu’il avait hypothéqué, appartient désormais aux promoteurs de la Sycamore Valley Ranch Company LLC. Endetté à hauteur de 500 millions de dollars, le Roi de la Pop avait accepté que la société d’investissement reprenne ses dettes de plus de 19 millions d’euros (soit 24 millions de dollars) sur la propriété.

Alors que l’on pensait qu’il reposerait à tout jamais à Neverland, le chanteur de Thriller sera probablement enterré dans le cimetière de Forest Lawn, sur les hauteurs de la Cité des Anges…

Brooklyn man accused of lying about hoarding medical supplies, coughing at officers

A Brooklyn man has been accused of lying about hoarding medical supplies and of coughing on police officers, officials announced Monday.

Baruch Feldheim, 43, was arrested over his alleged large supply and illegal sale of surgical masks, medical gowns and other medical supplies. He also was charged with assault for allegedly coughing on FBI agents while saying he had COVID-19, U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito announced in a release.

Feldheim allegedly sold medical supplies, including N95 respirators, to doctors and nurses at an inflated price.

On March 18, a New Jersey doctor requested 1,000 N95 masks in a WhatsApp chat group entitled “Virus2020!”, according to documents filed or statements made in association with the case. Feldheim allegedly charged him $12,000 for the masks, amounting to about a 700 percent markup.

The doctor was instructed to pick up the supplies at an auto repair shop in Irvington, N.J., which he was told had enough materials to fill a hospital with hand sanitizers, Clorox wipes, chemical cleaning supply agents and surgical supplies. 

Feldheim allegedly received a shipment from Canada with about eight pallets of medical face masks on March 25. Two days later, FBI agents found an empty box of N95 masks outside his home.

FBI officers reported seeing multiple individuals approach his home and leave with boxes or bags that seemed to hold medical supplies on Sunday, leading them to approach Feldheim.

They told him they wanted to remain distant from him due to the virus’s spread, leading him to cough in their direction. Once officials said they were searching for medical equipment and heard he had large amounts, he told the agents he had coronavirus, according to the Justice Department’s statement.  

Feldheim allegedly told officers he worked for a company that bought and sold the medical supplies but that he didn’t physically have the equipment, did not have large quantities and hadn’t sold them directly to individuals.

He could face up to six years in prison and a fine of up to $350,000.

The Department of Health and Human Services designated specific health and medical resources, including N95 respirators and face masks, as scarce.

Pelosi floats undoing SALT deduction cap in next coronavirus bill

Speaker Nancy PelosiNancy PelosiMeadows resigns from Congress, heads to White House Pelosi floats undoing SALT deduction cap in next coronavirus bill Overnight Health Care: More states order residents to stay at home | Trump looks to sell public on coronavirus response | Judges block Ohio, Texas abortion bans | Dems eye infrastructure in next relief bill MORE (D-Calif.) on Monday suggested that a controversial portion of President TrumpDonald John TrumpCuomo grilled by brother about running for president: ‘No. no’ Maxine Waters unleashes over Trump COVID-19 response: ‘Stop congratulating yourself! You’re a failure’ Meadows resigns from Congress, heads to White House MORE‘s 2017 tax law could be retroactively rolled back in the next coronavirus relief bill.

In an interview with The New York Times, Pelosi suggested that reversing the tax law’s $10,000 cap on the state and local tax (SALT) deduction for 2018 and 2019 could be a way to provide individuals with more money. 

“They’d have more disposable income, which is the lifeblood of our economy, a consumer economy that we are,” Pelosi told the Times.

The cap on the SALT deduction has been strongly disliked by politicians in high-tax, Democratic-leaning states such as New York, New Jersey and California, who argue that it has punished their residents and makes it harder for their states to provide public services.

But most Republicans support the SALT deduction cap, arguing that it helps to prevent the tax code from subsidizing higher state taxes.

Tax-policy experts across the ideological spectrum criticized Pelosi’s idea late Monday, arguing that repealing the SALT deduction cap would largely benefit high-income taxpayers.

Pelosi spokesman Henry Connelly said in a statement to The Hill that “action on SALT would be tailored to focus the benefits on middle class earners and include limitations on the high-end.” 

Legislation that repeals the SALT deduction cap would struggle to pass the Republican-controlled Senate, and it could also face some resistance in the House. In December, the House passed legislation to temporarily repeal the SALT deduction cap on a near party-line vote, but only after Democrats agreed to accept a Republican motion to amend the measure to prevent the repeal of the cap from applying to taxpayers with income of more $100 million. Sixteen Democrats voted against the bill.

Pelosi’s comments come as House Democrats are starting to think about what they would like to see in a fourth coronavirus relief bill. Trump on Friday signed the $2 trillion third coronavirus package, which included one-time, direct payments to taxpayers that phase out for individuals making more than $75,000 and married couples making more than $150,000. 

Pelosi has expressed interest in providing more direct payments to Americans, and she and other Democrats are already eyeing a fourth round of legislation as the nation grapples with the economy-crippling pandemic.

In a call with reporters on Monday, Pelosi and key House committee chairs said that infrastructure is a top priority of theirs for a fourth coronavirus bill.

US extends waivers on Iran sanctions amid coronavirus pandemic

The State Department has moved to extend waivers for U.S. and foreign companies doing business in Iran to assist that country with its civilian nuclear program.

A State Department spokeswoman confirmed to The Associated Press that several waivers had been extended, while sharply criticizing the Iranian government’s efforts to expand nuclear enrichment.

“Iran’s continued expansion of nuclear activities is unacceptable. The regime’s nuclear extortion is among the greatest threats to international peace and security,” the spokeswoman said.

Iranian officials have demanded that U.S. sanctions implemented after the Trump administration withdrew from the Iran nuclear agreement be relaxed in recent days, accusing the sanctions of stifling Iran’s ability to obtain basic medical supplies amid the outbreak of coronavirus.

“US has gone from sabotage & assassinations to waging an economic war & #EconomicTerrorism on Iranians—to #MedicalTerror amidst #covid19iran. This even ‘exceeds what would be permissible on the battlefield,'” tweeted Iran’s foreign minister Javad Zarif.

Health insurers Cigna, Humana waive out-of-pocket costs for coronavirus treatment

Two major U.S. health insurers, Cigna and Humana, are waiving all out-of-pocket costs for coronavirus treatments nationwide.

“Two of the country’s largest health insurers, Humana and Cigna, are announcing that they will waive co-pays, which is a big deal. For anybody who understands insurance, they don’t waive co-pays easily, but we’ve asked them to do it, and they’ve done it,” Trump announced at a Sunday press briefing in the Rose Garden.

The news was later confirmed by the CEOs of the two companies in a joint interview with Bloomberg. Cigna CEO David Cordani and Humana CEO Bruce Broussard told the news outlet they would take steps to avoid patients being dissuaded from seeking treatment due to cost or concerns that doctors or hospitals were not covered by their health insurance.

“We’re stepping in as aggressively as we can to support care access and peace of mind,” Cordani said.

The two reportedly declined to answer how the coronavirus outbreak, which has infected more than 130,000 in the U.S., would affect their business or the broader health care industry in the months ahead.

Press representatives for Cigna and Humana did not immediately return requests for comment on the president’s remarks.

Trump shifts, says distancing to go to April 30

 

President TrumpDonald John TrumpHealth insurers Cigna, Humana waive out-of-pocket costs for coronavirus treatment Puerto Rico needs more federal help to combat COVID-19 Fauci says April 30 extension is ‘a wise and prudent decision’ MORE on Sunday announced that the White House will keep its guidelines for social distancing in place through the end of April to try to blunt the spread of the coronavirus, a significant shift from less than a week ago, when he said he hoped the country could be “opened up” by Easter Sunday, April 12.

“Nothing would be worse than declaring victory before the victory is won,” Trump said in his remarks on Sunday. “That would be the greatest loss of all.”

Trump encouraged Americans to follow the guidelines issued by his administration roughly two weeks ago urging them to avoid restaurants and bars, cancel nonessential travel, and limit in-person gatherings to 10 people or fewer. But with those guidelines set to expire on Tuesday, Trump faced pressure from health experts to extend them or risk seeing a heightened death toll.

The president predicted that the U.S. would likely hit its peak death rate from the virus in two weeks — around when he had once hoped to begin reopening the country. He went on to suggest the country would be “well on our way to recovery” by June 1.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, called the decision a “wide and prudent” one. Fauci earlier Sunday had said the United States could see 1 million cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, and 100,000 to 200,000 deaths. 

Fauci during the Sunday evening news conference stood by those figures but also said that the extension of social distancing policies could curb such an outlook.

Trump said Sunday that the White House would be finalizing its plans for social distancing over the next few days and lay out the strategy and supporting data sometime Tuesday. 

Trump’s abrupt shift comes as confirmed cases and deaths from the virus have been climbing rapidly in recent days. The U.S. has far surpassed Italy and China to record the highest number of cases of any country in the world, with more than 137,000 confirmed infections as of Sunday evening. More than 2,400 Americans have died from the virus.

The president has seen the economy crater as a result of the coronavirus shutdown, and members of his team have been eager to reopen parts of the country.

Trump rejected on Sunday that publicly setting the Easter timeline was a mistake, calling it “aspirational.” 

“No, that was aspirational,” he said. “We had an aspiration of Easter, but when you hear these kinds of numbers and you hear the potential travesty, we don’t want to do anything where — we don’t want to have a spike up.”

Trump later expressed grievances about the adverse impact on the economy but asserted that a total of 2.2 million people would have died in the United States if his administration hadn’t taken the action that it had.

“We had the greatest economy in the history of the world, and now we’ve said, ‘Please dont work anymore,'” Trump said. “People want to work.”

The announcement came two days after Trump signed a $2 trillion economic relief package aimed at helping American workers and companies adversely affected by the coronavirus, which has forced business closures and massive layoffs across the country. More than 3 million people filed for unemployment benefits earlier this month, according to data released last week.

Trump also said Sunday that he would call on Congress to come back to session if states did not quickly supply workers who lost their jobs with unemployment checks so they can resolve the issue. He raised concerns that state unemployment offices might not be able to quickly process claims jacked up by the stimulus measure.

Trump’s Easter Sunday goal, which he mentioned during a Fox News town hall on March 24, appeared increasingly unrealistic over the past several days as the number of U.S. cases escalated. The White House appeared to be laying the groundwork for pushing back the timeline last week as officials described it as “aspirational” and Trump indicated it was not a hard-and-fast goal.

“We want to see that curve start heading down in the other direction, at a minimum. And we really have to talk about areas of the country that have not been affected or certainly have had a very small effect,” Trump told reporters Friday at a White House briefing. 

“I certainly want to get it open as soon as possible,” he said. “I don’t want it to be long, but we also want it to open safe. Otherwise, what did we do?”

The administration is working to ramp up testing in an effort to potentially ease restrictions on certain parts of the country sooner than others.

Trump said in a letter to governors last week that his administration was collecting data to classify certain counties as low risk, medium risk or high risk for the coronavirus, which would allow the federal government to issue tailored guidelines on what kinds of social distancing measures are needed.

Vice President Pence wrote to hospital administrators on Sunday asking them to begin reporting how many tests they conduct each day to try to gather more data for the project.

But Sunday’s announcement makes clear that even with advances in testing and contact tracing, the administration will not begin to relax the guidelines for at least another month. Trump said he considered leaving the door open to loosening restrictions in certain areas but that his own health officials indicated it was not practical.

“They said, ‘We don’t like that idea,'” Trump said of Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx, the two most prominent health experts on the coronavirus task force. “And we could do it, but I don’t think it would be good.”

Trump has previously identified the farm belt — Iowa, Nebraska and Idaho, in particular — as states with relatively low numbers of infections that he believes could go back to work relatively soon.

Governors across the country have imposed strict measures intended to slow the spread of the virus that supersede the federal guidelines. California, New York, Illinois, Michigan, Idaho, Oregon, Ohio and Louisiana are among the states that have issued stay at home orders and closed businesses deemed non-essential.
