Info not to miss

The disappearance of a dubbing legend.

Asterix, Mickey Mousse, Kaa in "The Jungle Book" or even C-3 PO in "Stars Wars": Roger Carel, who died on September 11 at the age of 93, had lent his voice to many characters who rocked the childhood of many French people.

“We did not wish to communicate on his death, to preserve his wife, greatly upset.

We didn't want her to be bombarded with messages from people in the profession, or journalists, ”her son explains to Le Parisien.

The funeral of the famous comedian took place this Thursday in the strictest family privacy.

It now rests in the family vault of Villejesus (Charente).

What to remember too

  • The highways' jackpot.

    40 billion euros is the enormous sum that the motorway concessionaires will pay in total to their shareholders in the coming years.

    This is what reveals a Senate report, which estimates that the actors of the sector, who will pay these dividends between 2022 and 2036, earn too much money, in particular to the detriment of their users.

    According to this document of more than 300 pages, published this Friday, the repeated increases in toll prices are largely at the origin of these pharaonic sums.

    To which we must also add 24.3 billion euros in dividends already paid since 2006, the date of the privatization of the motorways.

  • Screw tower in Nice.

    Olivier Véran, Minister of Health, announced at his press conference yesterday that new local restrictions were expected in the regions most heavily affected by the virus.

    Thus in Nice, the prefect of the Alpes-Maritimes has just announced that "groups of more than 10 people are prohibited in parks, gardens and beaches".

    Likewise, drinking establishments will now close at 12:30 a.m., major events are limited to 1,000 people in the city, where Heritage Days and Neighbors' Day are therefore canceled.

  • Israel is reconfiguring itself.

    Country having recorded the highest rate of contamination with the coronavirus in the last 15 days, Israel has just reconfigured itself for three weeks, despite the start of the Jewish holiday season and the discontent of a large part of the population.

    "The health system has raised the red flag", justified the Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.

    In early September, the authorities first imposed partial containment in the areas with the highest infection rates, mostly ultra-Orthodox Jewish or Arab Israeli localities.

    In vain, then.

The unexpected info

End of plastic at E.Leclerc.

The supermarket chain announced it last night: from Monday, its stores will replace the reusable plastic bags that they had previously offered with hessian bags.

These much greener bags will cost 1.50 euros and will be available in some 700 stores of the brand.

With this decision, "these are 7000 tonnes of plastic that will be removed each year", says Leclerc, who has chosen a "solid bag reusable many times".

In France, thin plastic bags, known as “single-use”, have been banned in checkouts since July 2016 and were banned in 2017 for other uses (to pack fruit and vegetables, fish or bulk products). ).
