Kendji Girac

A new horizon

He wavered and then found his balance again. With the help of his family and thousands of fans. On April 22, the gypsy sun turned a Colt 45 against him in a caravan where his wife and daughter were. And France discovered, at the same time as his chest injury, his intimate cracks. But this 28-year-old fighter reassured his audience on Instagram on June 26 and assured them that he would rise to his second chance: “I can’t wait to come back to do what I love most in the world, sing with my guitar, share all this love.” He is recording a single scheduled for early September. The best proof that the tenor has caught his breath.

Young people in distress are the first victims of the psychiatric crisis in France. Report from Evreux, in the hospital department intended for them.

To take care of her, cuddly toys and an entire department. In France, more and more young people are at serious risk of depression: one in seven, according to a national survey published in April. Among the most common causes of what has become a scourge, moral, physical or sexual violence, school bullying multiplied by social networks, an anxiety-provoking climate… Amplified by the health crisis of 2020, this deep distress continues to increase. Faced with it, an alarming shortage of resources: only 600 child psychiatrists for 10 million children and a few hundred beds in specialized hospitals.

SNCF leads its rail battle

In Île-de-France, the French company must allow millions of visitors from around the world to access the Olympic sites. A race against time.

They are the workers behind the scenes. Their work allows millions of users to travel from one end of the country to the other in complete safety. To cope with the influx of passengers this summer, the SNCF has promised 4,500 additional trains. An opportunity to further accelerate the renovation of the tracks. Stations, rails, signal boxes, electrical stations… the maintenance is colossal. But beyond the Olympic Games, this immense project has a longer-term objective: to double rail traffic by 2050 and accelerate the ecological transition. There is no question of France being one train behind.

At Friend Louis’s

The table of the greats

Famous for its old-fashioned dishes and wealthy gourmets, the Parisian institution is celebrating its 100th anniversary.

Monsieur is resisting. And delighting those who think things were better before… on their plate, anyway. More “snails, beef ribs” than “broccoli, green beans,” the bistro founded in 1924 by Antoine Magnin, master roaster, has no time for the injunctions of dietary correctness. The butter, the sauces, the portions, the bill, everything here is maximalist. Heads of state and Hollywood stars alike enjoy its old-fashioned and relaxed atmosphere. And even the twig models of fashion weeks come to order frogs’ legs and garlic potato pancakes. A condensed version of French gastronomy with old-fashioned waiters who handle jokes as well as their trays.
