Music: Siren Festival, a Large indie rock gotha world.

On the first one they think of a misunderstanding, a hoax, a fake son of our days. At least to me, and to many like me, it seemed that. A substantial fraction of independent rock world aristocracy for two days in concert in Central Italy, and mica in Rome. A Festival that disfigures compared to other geo-political listings of music, in a small seaside resort that does not even provincial capital. A third Springtime Sound in the region that at one time it was customary to define "the locomotive of the South": the Abruzzo. And the comparison with the Spring Sound holds up a lot, if we think that indie heavyweights like The National, Mogwai and John Grant, seeded of the first edition of the Siren Fest, which Friday 25 and Saturday 26 July held in Vast, as little more than a month ago have dominated the scene both in Barcelona and Porto, where the Spring is officia. Word of who writes, that the ceremony was in mind, body and spirit. Siren Fest. As long as there is rock there is hope. It’s in suburban churches that often take place more resounding miracles. The National we know them all. Also because they are part of the now common to hear television advertising. Impress live. Their latest album ‘ Trouble will find me ‘ consecrated them with Grammy nominations. The New York band, led by Matt Berninger, a bespectacled but bourgeois Bohemian blood with the guitar, builds insinuating lyrics-perfect Gallop mantra to be tuned to the stadium, or in the car, or mouth shut in the library. Moving and moving. And the Mogwai? From Glasgow with sonica poetry, and with tender fury. It was originally post-rock, mixed in key sometimes noise sometimes melodrama; but then the Mogwai have progressively emancipated from that maximum sound typical of the 1990s, while remaining coerentissimi to themselves. Film, our strongly invested always caresses, even when strong Devil just wants you. In concert is a unique experience, and always changing. Eventually the ears whistle, the heart beats strong, the hypothalamus bows. But even John Grant not joking. A little Elton John and/or Antony, a little electronic Elf; a gloomy and difficult past redeemed by talento, succeeds in a company that manages only to great: get light and magic, and thick and light songs and irresistible from cracks of life. Was the album ‘ Queen of Denmark ‘ to us. His latest cd is titled ‘ Pale green ghosts ‘. And then will i Fuck Buttons, with their strict electronic, lush and post-industrial; the frontman of Hot Chip, Alexis Taylor; Tycho, electronic arts master dreamy; and several others. July 25: The National, Dry the River, The Soft Moon, The Drones, Anna Von Hausswolff, Adriano Viterbini, Club Boxerin, Jennifer Gentle, Movie Star Junkies, Ninos du Brasil, monks of Surf Giorgio Gigli (djset), wild sea (djset).

But no time to admire the panorama, this is the time where the tail of the Pack may release. In cars, the race directors chew pens and speak into the microphone. Motorcycles, they verge on strollers and cardboard cows. Four-wheelers, must theoretically be the race Director, the doctor and the teams in order of the standings. But in the battle of the back field race, each team plays the Horn to back up to a rider in difficulty. All this under the Grand gestures of the regulator, returned on his motorcycle: back in the race, facing chaos.

The strike, new tool of South African workers.

In January, the strike led by the world’s three leading producers of Platinum miners had already paralyzed the South Africa. This strike for five months, the longest in the country’s mining history, struck the South African economy of hit resulting in the deterioration of his financial note in the first quarter, recalls the "Mail & Guardian". For journalist Steven Grootes, corresponding to the ‘Guardian’, the strike which ended in small victory for employees, marked a political turning point: "this victory proves that there are now other black political actors who are not affiliated to the ANC in South Africa. If this fervor is spreading to other sectors, trade unions may well become a significant force in the country.  » Grootes got it right. Since July 1, more than 220. 000 members of the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) went on strike to ask for a salary increase. Numsa calls for an increase of 15% and 1. 000 RAND housing allowance. But patrons of the metal and engineering industry offer an increase over three years, from 8% to 10% the first year. For the "Mail & Guardian", these differences are not huge and an agreement could be found quickly. "After four weeks, the strike is no longer a matter of money but an anticipation of future work stoppages", writes the paper. These are employees themselves who are unable to agree on the duration of a possible agreement. They therefore anticipate their future rights to strike. Meanwhile, General Motors and Toyota have stopped their production in South Africa, due to lack of spare parts. The cessation of activity on sites more leaden economy. .

Nibali passes without damages the first Pyrenean stage and yellow Jersey.

And go. A less. Without any Vincenzo Nibali leaves behind his back the first stage pireniaca, from Carcassonne to Bagnères de Luchon. The longest. Won by Australian Michael Rogers, already starring in the tour of Italy with two hits (Zoncolan and Savona) with a strong Sprint in the final. The yellow Jersey controls the race without any problems. And in the last ascent, the 11 miles of the Port de Bales, pass with Spaniard Valverde and French Pinot, protagonist of the day because his attacks helps to blow Romain Bardet, former White Jersey and young great hopes of French cycling. Bardet, together with the band Van Garderen, is the real victim of this first challenge. Bardet wanted to strengthen its position and instead pays duty on the last climb. Not only loses the White Jersey, but also lose the third place in the standings leaving him at unleashed Pinot that begins to feel the scent of the podium. Pinot is now third in about five minutes by Vincent. However Valverde held safe its second place over 4 and a half minutes from Sicily. Spanish resists, but does not advance by one millimeter. The impression is that most games in defence and in attack. Clinging to the podium, hoping that the Providence gives him a hand. A puncture, a crisis of hunger, a macumba which hit the yellow Jersey. Anything is possible in a long marathon as la Grande Boucle. But Nibali is solid as a stone. And even ride under the mustache that did not. A cat that, step by step, plays with his mice. They dance, even if the play between them, because these skirmishes, in the end, skimming competition. Vincenzo is quiet though this time, in the last 25 kilometers, remains without companions cavandosela however brilliantly. Someone objects: remain without team in the final, although Nibali is in great shape, is never good and righteous thing. But Vincent, who must think to hard work of the next two days, it does take anxiety. "So far my comrades have worked hard. Some are even killed. I prefer that retrieve the forces every day. I’m fine, and I know that in the next few days I can still count on them ,. ». Even from these things we see a captain. And also from this tranquility you see a yellow Jersey. They must think about the present but also the future. And the future, while approaching, is still long. This was a day to leaks, the longest of the Tour, but with a goal that came after a long descent to twenty kilometers. Now, this Wednesday, there is the hardest stage of the Pyrenees with triptych three hills hotel (Portillon, Peyresourde and Val Louron) before the final ramp Plan of Adet. Four climbs one behind the other. The hamlet is short (124 km) but can cause a lot of damage. Nibali must be on guard, but is the first to know. Although to hear Pinot, which should be the most rampant, trackers and tells him to fear attacks from the others, but it seems that now you think more competition in defence. As if to say: Nibali is from another planet, let’s keep tight a place on the podium in Paris, which is still a nice firm. This is the air you breathe, but it is better to stand on who goes there. The Tour is as in life: not just thirty, 31 must be. And the thirty-one and the third and final stage of the Pyrenees that runs Thursday through his Majesty Tourmalet (2015 m) that precedes the always difficult climb of Hautacam. Here is the ultimate danger because then Nibali can go in a carriage to Paris. The last time trial, that of Saturday, despite being long (54 km) does not represent a threat to the yellow Jersey who hasn’t, in the standings, chronoman that can packed into Montmeló. Touch wood. .

He said: the challenge is to create a personal space that works in a public space. This Memorial will fall into the eye, we will see that thing every day, Ole Morten Jensen says.

The cross-channel shipping company MyFerryLink, ex-SeaFrance to which Eurotunnel rents boats, may need to cease its activity at the end of the year if its appeal of the British prohibition to operate from Dover is not suspensive, according to the CEO of Eurotunnel. The hypothesis more likely for the end of the year is that MyFerryLink be stopped, said Jacques Gounon, patron of the operator of the tunnel under the English channel, in a conference call on the occasion of the publication of half-year results of group. The British authority of competition and markets (CMA) confirmed June 27 its decision that Eurotunnel should no longer be allowed to operate the service of MyFerryLink from Dover. The CMA believes that MyFerryLink should be independent of Eurotunnel. Mr Gounon said await notification of the British competition authority within a few days. We will appeal, and request that the appeal be suspensive, but we have little chance to succeed, he said. MyFerryLink a good chance of winning on appeal, he added, but it is likely that the decision is made after the expiry of six months at the end of which the company should cease its activity: activity may stop while there is not yet the results of the appeal, is concerned about the CEO of Eurotunnel. With DFDS Seaways and P & O Ferries, MyFerryLink is one of the three companies serving the Calais-Dover, main line entry point for the cross-channel traffic in Britain, and has 533 jobs in France and 71 in Great Britain. The first half of Eurotunnel results in the red. The group shows a net loss of EUR 11 million set, reduced by more than a third compared to the same period of last year. Seasonal, cross-channel activity is traditionally much better in the second half than in the first.
