Peugeot Metropolis, the Frenchman remains in the race

TEST – Revised and corrected, this 400 cc tricycle appears more attractive than ever despite a few details to be reviewed.

The Peugeot Metropolis.
The Peugeot Metropolis. Peugeot

At traffic lights, cyclists and pedestrians glare at you and completely miss a design that will please with its codes borrowed from Peugeot sedans, in particular the three-claw lights. The object of the wrath: a noisy engine with too high an idle speed (1600 rpm). It deserves to cut when stationary and vibrate less.

Green light: the Metropolis is the first to scoot, supported by the vigor of its 400 cm³ now meeting the Euro 5 standard. Accelerations are close to those of a maxi-scooter and its main rival, the Piaggio MP3 500. As the next traffic light approaches, we prefer to operate the two brake levers on the handlebars than to trigger the integral braking, which is difficult to control, via the pedal located on the right side of the flat floor. In both cases, the attack on the brakes deserves to be more frank. In town, on cobblestones and in the rain, we appreciate what makes the salt of this three-wheeler accessible with a B license and a 7-hour training course: its great stability and the presence of a pendulum which avoids putting a dismount when stationary.

Easy to use

If the grip is easy, it is still necessary to deal with a high mass of 271 kg empty. When stationary, moving it is not easy. As with other three-wheelers, handling is not its strong point. Everything is in order when you pick up speed but, again, the inertia in the front axle requires anticipating turns. Less comfortable in town to sneak around than a traditional scooter, the Metropolis is more suitable for commuters, those who go from suburb to suburb and who use expressways and highways. Its performance – up to 140 km / h on the clock – but also its heading and its comfort of good quality (except for the passenger who has a firm seat) allow it to hold its place easily. At a high rate, the autonomy melts almost visibly, but we only know this when the gauge lights up because the graph needle is fixed and therefore does not allow real time knowledge of the level of the tank.


This is a significant plus: the 2020 vintage still made in France is accompanied by new instrumentation. The reverse-needle analog dials frame a 5-inch digital screen that can display their phone calls, some of their received text messages and the arrows of GPS navigation after connecting their smartphone via Bluetooth via a specific application. On the other hand, the electronic key did not seem to us to be an improvement because of the slowness of connection to the system and the play in the rotary ignition button. If the space under the saddle is insufficient, the Metropolis has plenty of storage under the handlebars and even a USB socket. Revised and corrected, Peugeot’s tricycle appears more attractive than ever despite a few points of detail to be reviewed. However, it will be necessary to agree to pay € 9,699 to access the high-end Allure version.

The former White House chief of staff said Trump was dishonest

Former White House chief of staff, General John Kelly, once told friends that President Trump was dishonest and frail.

“His level of dishonesty amazed me. Dishonesty, pragmatism in all relationships, more pathetic than anything else. He’s the most flawed person I’ve ever met. in my life, “said General Kelly, CNN reported on October 16.

White House chief of staff John Kelly attended the meeting between President Donald Trump and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in May 2018. Image: Reuters.

The comment will appear on a special CNN news program titled “The Insiders: A Warning from Former Trump Officials”, scheduled to air on the evening of October 18. In the program, a number of former senior government officials such as White House national security advisor John Bolton, former expert at the Department of Health and Civil Services Rick Bright, or former general counsel of the Department of Homeland Security US John Mitnick will explain why they think Trump is not suitable for the presidency.

Kelly’s comment has received the approval of many former government officials who also appeared on the show.

Olivia Troye, former top adviser to Vice President Mike Pence, said that President Trump knew about Covid-19’s impact on America since mid-February but “he didn’t want to hear about it, because of concern. the biggest thing on his mind is the vote. “

Elizabeth Neumann, a former Homeland Security official, criticized Trump for not condemning the white elite theorists after the first presidential debate with Democratic rival Joe Biden at the end last month.

However, talking to NBC on October 15, President Trump confirmed that he condemned the white man theory of superiority. “I condemn the white supreme theory, okay?” The White House boss told host Savannah Guthrie. “I have condemned the white supreme theory for many years.”

Kelly, who left the White House in controversial circumstances in January 2019, has occasionally criticized President Trump since his resignation. In June, after the death of colored man George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police and President Trump’s reaction to anti-racist protests, Kelly declared that Trump “was the first president. he sees no attempt to unite the American people. “

Kim Jong-un pledged to build 25,000 houses in 5 years

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un pledged to support storm-affected areas and build at least 25,000 homes over the next five years.

During a visit to the Komdok area in South Hamgyong province, one of the most affected areas in North Korea, Mr. Kim regretted the situation of over 50-year-old houses in which people live. Called the military to launch a more ambitious construction plan, state news agency KCNA reported today.

According to KCNA, the North Korean military’s construction activity has reached 60%, with at least 2,300 homes in Komdok. The “revolution” in the construction plan that Mr. Kim called for will begin with the construction of 25,000 homes over five years, with the start of next year scheduled for January.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un surveyed the Komdok area, South Hamgyong province, on October 13. Image: KCNA.

The North Korean leader’s local visit comes after he appears to have cried while giving a speech to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Korean Labor Party on October 10. Analysts say Kim Jong-un’s public tears, which rarely happens, shows the level of pressure he is facing.

“People have put their trust, as high as heaven and as deep as the sea, in me, but I have not always responded worthy of it. I am really sad because of this,” said Kim, adding. that his efforts “are not enough to help people get rid of the difficulties in life”.

Last week, Kim launched an 80-day campaign to achieve goals in all areas ahead of the North Korean Labor Party congress in January, where the five-year socioeconomic development plan will be decided.

North Korea is going through a difficult year, both facing international sanctions and the impact of anti-Covid-19 measures, along with many major storms that swept the country.

Tricolor running apps in the offensive phase

Posted on Oct 14, 2020 at 8:00 a.m.

For running, 2020 will remain an ambivalent year: on the one hand, the number of practitioners increased sharply during confinement; on the other hand, major races have been canceled or postponed because of the Covid-19 pandemic. In this unprecedented context, several French applications dedicated to this discipline are doing well and strengthening their position with their community.

This is the case for example of Runnin’City, which publishes courses for runners allowing them to visit a city at the same time as they run. Obviously, this approach closely linked to tourism encountered difficulties at the start of the crisis. The number of sessions dropped from 1,070 to 750 per day before and after confinement. And the municipal elections, the second round of which was also delayed, penalized the start-up which sells its routes to local communities. Even so, Runnin’City saw a 32% increase in orders in the first three quarters of 2020 compared to the entire previous year. “In France, we asked our users not to run because our routes encouraged them to go beyond the authorized kilometer during confinement, explains its CEO, Olivier Lebleu. But this was not the case elsewhere and for example we sold 30 courses to the city of Brussels, then 18 to Orléans once the restrictions were lifted. “

International DNA

It was by taking an interest in neighboring countries that the Lyon nugget came across Sport City Tour, a Swiss company that offers fitness courses in 17 cities. “We had the opportunity to acquire it by chance and we did, says the entrepreneur. This operation allows us to open this country with already several references. “ At the same time, the company, whose revenues should reach 500,000 euros in 2020, is developing white-label apps for brands, an activity that accounts for 30% of its turnover.

On the side of RunMotion Coach, the confinement also had a negative impact on the activity, which does not prevent it from completing this month a fundraising of 300,000 euros from business angels. “Without the Covid-19 crisis, we would have two or three times as many users, believes Romain Adam, co-founder with his twin brother Guillaume and Paul Waroquier. We are going to take advantage of this financial transaction to develop marketing in the United States, the United Kingdom and Spain where we already have users. “ Because the international is one of the strengths of the young Savoyard growth. Its personalized coaching app is already well known there through partnerships developed with races that took place abroad and where no major player has yet succeeded in breaking through.

Develop sources of income

RunMotion Coach cultivates its difference thanks to training plans adapted to the physical capacities of the runners, to their objectives, but also to the time available. When preparing for a long race, active people often have great difficulty following the sessions defined beforehand and can quickly lose pace. In addition, and for paying subscribers, the start-up offers a conversational robot that supports them according to their needs.

The digitization of support is also the credo of Running Care that targets injured runners. After having been part of the Adidas incubator at Station F, it begins its fundraising (1 million euros targeted) to develop abroad. With 70,000 subscribers and 10,000 active every month, it is also starting to expand its income through partnerships with sports stores that offer the app to their customers. With its class 1 medical device certification, it can move forward and deploy a device beyond injury, for example by including prevention through telephone advice.

Plan against LGBT hatred: 150 measures to strengthen the rights of lesbians, gays, bi and transgender people

Franceinfo was able to consult the main lines of the national action plan for equal rights, against hatred and anti-LGBT discrimination.

Some 150 measures will be presented on Wednesday 14 October to strengthen the rights of LGBT people (lesbians, gays, bi and transgender), according to information from franceinfo which was able to consult the main lines of the national action plan for equal rights , against hatred and anti-LGBT discrimination. This plan covers all areas: family, school, university, work, health, sport, etc. Every six months, a progress report will be made in the monitoring committee, from March 2021.

“LGBT people are totally invisible, they are citizens who have rights but who struggle to have these rights recognized”, said Elisabeth Moreno, Minister Delegate in charge of Equality between women and men, Tuesday 13 October on France Inter. Three main axes emerge from this plan.

Recognition and “real access” to rights

First, “the real and concrete recognition of the rights acquired through hard work”, according to the Minister, with the opening of the PMA to couples of women and single women. This plan also provides for facilitating filiation for the “social” mother for children born before the adoption of the law on Bioethics.

Then it is necessary “give real access to these rights”, explains Elisabeth Moreno. “Since 2013, gay people can adopt but few couples have access to it. We will be working with the family council to understand where the barriers are.” The ambition is to provide access to the real right to adoption. The plan also plans to sensitize the medical professions so that they can provide better care for lesbians, trans people and AIDS patients.

The fight against discrimination and violence

The second axis of this plan is the fight against hatred and anti-LGBT violence, with the creation in particular of a site to “Educate against LGBTphobias”. The plan also includes creating anti-LGBT hate observatories. It is also a question of developing a network of referents, in the police stations, gendarmeries and anti-discrimination poles of the prosecution, to better take into account the victims. This device is being tested in Paris, Marseille, and Bordeaux.

One of the most violent insults in schoolyards or stadiums is ‘queer’. Does that shock you in the mouth of a minister? Imagine how humiliating, hurtful for a young LGBT person.Elisabeth Moreno, minister delegate in charge of equality between women and men

For Elisabeth Moreno, “We must start by educating and raising awareness. We are going to create a website on which the teaching staff can find all the tools, the language elements so that they can train themselves.” A guide will also be written “to better accommodate trans (gender) students in schools.”

An improvement in daily life

Third axis, improving daily life, in particular by facilitating the use of the usual first name in unofficial administrative documents, therefore excluding identity cards and passports. This measure should make it easier for transgender people to use the first name of their choice, for example when registering for school, sports clubs, or on pay slips. This will allow trans people to be able to be called by the first name they have chosen, without having to wait for an official change in civil status which often takes several months.

People have little understanding of this topic of sexual orientation and gender identity. We must give this population full space so that it can take part in our society.Elisabeth Moreno, minister delegate in charge of equality between women and men

1,870 people were victims of homophobic or transphobic acts in 2019, according to police and gendarmerie figures. The risk of suicide is four times higher compared to the general population, and seven times higher among transgender people. And more than half of LGBT people have suffered, during their lifetime, acts of discrimination or violence, according to an IFOP survey revealed in May 2019 by franceinfo and The world.

Kymco X-Town 125 City: flat feet

TEST – The only GT 125 scooter on the market to have a flat floor, the City shows great versatility.

Here is finally a GT scooter that thinks of women. A variation of the 125 cc X-Town, the City by Kymco has been designed to adapt to all body types and for truly versatile use. Not only does it have a lowered 20mm seat that avoids tiptoeing when stationary, but also a flat floor, a first in the GT category. This architecture, popular with women, contributes to driving comfort but also to improving everyday life.

You can thus place a travel or racing bag between the legs, if necessary by hanging it on the hook located at the level of the apron. More compact than other models on the market, the City is light to handle and easy to put on the center stand. The finish is certainly not as neat as that of the Japanese models – the fuel tank cap is connected to a plastic cord – but the equipment is complete. It includes a USB socket to recharge your smartphone under a cover

The Philippines is about to send more than 200 militiamen to the South China Sea

The Philippine Navy announced that it was preparing to deploy 200 militiamen to patrol and protect fishermen who were harassed by Chinese ships in the South China Sea.

“This is a response to China and its maritime militias in the South China Sea,” Philippine Navy Commander Giovanni Carlo Bacordo said on October 13, after announcing plans to deploy two companies under the Single Citizen Armed Forces (CAFGU) Geography to the South China Sea.

CAFGU is a militia formed by the Philippines in 1987, with the original purpose of providing regular military support against the domestic insurgent movements. CAFGU units are part of the Permanent Reserve Force of the Philippine Armed Forces (AFP).

According to the plan announced by Commander Bacordo, each CAFGU company deployed to the South China Sea is expected to include 120 people, mobilized from the militia force of the Philippine army. The time when this force will begin operations has not been announced, as militia units must complete training for the Philippine navy.

Vice Admiral Barcado said the militia will be equipped with high-speed boats and rifles, under the management of the Western Command and the Military North Command. In addition to protecting fishermen, they are also responsible for conducting reconnaissance, reconnaissance and intelligence activities to serve military operations.

The Philippine naval commander said that deploying militias to protect fishermen operating in the South China Sea will help the navy concentrate resources to protect the exclusive economic zone from infringements. Barcado admits that the number of deployed 240 militants is still very small, but the plan could be expanded if the AFP thinks it works.

Beijing has recently carried out many drastic activities to put pressure on the surrounding countries and territories in the context of countries focusing on anti-Covid-19.

In the South China Sea, China deployed a series of aggressive activities such as sending the Hai Duong 8 geological survey vessel into Vietnam’s exclusive economic zone, following the Malaysian drilling vessel, allowing the police ship to sink its fishing vessel. Vietnam, illegal fighter exercises and deployments in Vietnam’s Hoang Sa archipelago.

A Chinese fishing vessel in June 2019 sank a Philippine fishing vessel near the Grass Rong lawn. 22 fishermen aboard the Philippines were then rescued by Vietnamese fishing vessels.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on September 22 pledged before the United Nations General Assembly that Manila would uphold the decision of the South China Sea of ​​the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) in 2016. Meanwhile, Beijing has repeatedly declared it “do not accept or recognize” the PCA’s judgment.

Speaking at a bilateral relations seminar three days later, Chinese ambassador to the Philippines Hoang Khe Lien said that President Xi Jinping and President Duterte had reached “an important consensus” on “overcoming the dispute. Sea aside, manage the situation through bilateral consultation and strengthen dialogue and cooperation “.

However, General Gilbert Gapay, commander of AFP, on 13/10 stated that the situation in the South China Sea “remains uncertain and volatile” due to “drastic actions by the Chinese side” when deploying warships, Coast Guard ships with marine militia in the area.
