1. What happened today
Airbus will cut 5,000 jobs in France. The European aeronautics giant announced a historic restructuring last night to ensure its survival. The group plans to cut 15,000 jobs, or 11% of its workforce, including a third in France. This is the largest restructuring ever launched by Airbus since its birth in 1969. “The figure is excessive, thundered the entourage of the Minister of the Economy. We are waiting for Airbus to reduce the number of layoffs. ” For the time being, however, the plan does not take into account the public support measures announced by France and Germany. The boss of the group, Guillaume Faury, assured that some 3,500 jobs could be saved. Social dialogue opens Thursday with the unions. The evolution of the discussions over the next few days should be closely followed by the government, which encourages Airbus to favor voluntary departures in particular. Because this new plan puts the executive in front of a puzzle. He will again have to justify the state aid paid to a company which is laying off workers.
Where is the epidemic? France has registered 18 new Covid-19-related deaths in 24 hours in hospitals, bringing the total number of deaths since the start of the epidemic to 29,861. The number of resuscitation patients continues to drop with 582 patients concerned, 20 less than Tuesday. A total of 8,336 people are hospitalized for this infection. However, the virus continues to circulate on the territory, continues the Directorate General of Health, noting that 304 “clusters” have been registered since May 9, including 3 new in the last 24 hours. Globally, the pandemic continues to accelerate. The number of people infected every day on the planet exceeds 160,000 for a week, announced the World Health Organization. The American biotech company Inovio has nevertheless announced encouraging preliminary results for its project of vaccine against the virus, administered on forty volunteers in the United States.
Does being a minister mean knowing everything? Yes.
Roselyne Bachelot, former Minister of Health
Explanations from Marisol Touraine. After Agnès Buzyn, who went on the grill yesterday, the parliamentary committee of inquiry heard two of her predecessors on the management of mask stocks in France. Marisol Touraine cleared himself: “A minister is not going to count light bulbs, she relies on competent people in whom she places her trust.” During the five years spent at the head of the Ministry of Health, from 2012 to 2017, she claims to have never known anything about the alarming situation of mask stocks. Roselyne Bachelot, in the same position between 2007 and 2010, succeeded him before the deputies. “The trials to which I have been subjected, the mockery, the accusations have been so violent and so unfair that I can understand the fears aroused by some of my successors”, tried the woman who was accused of having done too much during the H1N1 pandemic. Incidentally, she considered that a minister should be informed of the management of the masks. And let go: “Does being a minister mean knowing everything?” Yes.”
Unions worried about the hacking of the bin. The 2020 edition of the baccalaureate must be marked with the seal of “benevolence”. As a consequence of confinement, the diploma will be issued this year on the basis of continuous monitoring. The first and second trimester grades are taken into account, as well as the “attendance” and “motivation” of the students during and after confinement. “Harmonization juries”, who have access to the grades and the assessments, must then maintain the value of the diploma and the fairness between the candidates, in particular those coming from high schools which mark severely. But the unions consider that they have not obtained sufficient guarantees on the proper functioning of these juries. “We spotted differences between the grades in the school book and those entered on the Lotanet application, which usually collects the grades obtained in the bac. Which means that there may have been some hacking, upstream, at the high school level ”, worries a professor, representative Snes-FSU, who sat Friday in a “prejury”.
2. See, cook, get up…
Get up. After struggling with an illness or experiencing a painful breakup, it is not uncommon to sink even when the worst seems to have passed. Why do we sometimes collapse after overcoming a difficult ordeal? “When we are in action or even fighting, we finally focus on a particular problem, and that’s what the brain likes and knows how to do: compartmentalize and avoid dissonance, explains Guillaume De La Chapelle, psychiatrist at INICEA in Lyon. But when all these little hassles that have been set aside reappear, they have often grown. With dead batteries, it’s even more difficult to deal with it. ” This collapse is sometimes necessary, as psychologist Stéphanie Bertholon points out: “The system is well done because by relaxing it forces us to stop and gain strength. It is ultimately a protective mechanism. ”
See. In the cinema this Wednesday, Emmanuelle Devos plays in The perfumes a creator of fragrances who, after losing her sense of smell, finds herself drawn to her opposite. She embodies a haughty character gradually breaking the ice in contact with a gruff driver, camped by Grégory Montel. “Grégory Magne observes them with a magnifying glass, with an unusual softness, licked images, warm colors. Thanks to him, they will inherit a whole new life ”, notes our critic Éric Neuhoff. “This is one of the roles that I preferred to prepare, says the actress in an interview with Figaro . It’s not just the perfume, Anne Walberg has a special character, it’s the first time I play someone so dry and unpleasant. She is not used to worrying about others and considers them as lads. It fell from its pedestal. ”
In the evening, I want to go to sleep with the certainty of having done my best, as a man, a citizen and an entrepreneur.

Create. Requested by Le Figaro, the big names in Italian fashion, particularly involved in the life of their country, express themselves on the crisis they are going through to share their struggles and their hopes. Among the first to express himself during the confinement on the need to rethink the fashion system, Giorgio Armani talks about his commitments to the transalpine industry and his love for Milan. “In the evening, I want to go to sleep with the certainty of having done my best, as a man, a citizen and an entrepreneur. Beauty is a moral question: when it is authentic, it makes life better ”, says the designer. Then add: “We, the big names in fashion – and not just us – must overcome rivalries to take salutary actions together in Italy.»
To cook. A native of the Landes, Julien Duboué teaches us how to prepare a lamb txilindron. The opportunity for the chef, now based in Paris, to tell us about a product that is dear to him: Espelette pepper. “It’s our pepper. It has become a full-fledged seasoning that has taken a huge place ”, welcomes the chef. “We use it in 90% of our plates, whether at A Noste or Boulom. We spend a kilo a week, which is huge. It lends itself particularly well to the recipe I offer. Txilindron is less known than axoa but also excellent. I use milk lamb from the Basque Country which I mark and confit with the shallots. Then, I deglaze with vinegar to add acidity and break up the fat of the lamb a little. All brought up by the tones brought by the Espelette pepper. ”
