• Pathogens | Free Full-Text | Investigation of #Long_COVID Prevalence and Its Relationship to #Epstein-Barr Virus Reactivation
    https://www.mdpi.com/2076-0817/10/6/763

    Coronavirus disease 2019 (#COVID-19) patients sometimes experience long-term symptoms following resolution of acute disease, including fatigue, brain fog, and rashes. Collectively these have become known as long COVID.

    Our aim was to first determine long COVID prevalence in 185 randomly surveyed COVID-19 patients and, subsequently, to determine if there was an association between occurrence of long COVID symptoms and reactivation of Epstein–Barr virus (#EBV) in 68 COVID-19 patients recruited from those surveyed.

    We found the prevalence of long COVID symptoms to be 30.3% (56/185), which included 4 initially asymptomatic COVID-19 patients who later developed long COVID symptoms.

    Next, we found that 66.7% (20/30) of long COVID subjects versus 10% (2/20) of control subjects in our primary study group were positive for EBV reactivation based on positive titers for EBV early antigen-diffuse (EA-D) IgG or EBV viral capsid antigen (VCA) IgM. The difference was significant (p < 0.001, Fisher’s exact test). A similar ratio was observed in a secondary group of 18 subjects 21–90 days after testing positive for COVID-19, indicating reactivation may occur soon after or concurrently with COVID-19 infection.

    These findings suggest that many long COVID symptoms may not be a direct result of the #SARS-CoV-2 virus but may be the result of COVID-19 inflammation-induced EBV reactivation.

  • Rave de Redon : l’observatoire des libertés recueille des témoignages - Affrontements violents lors d’une rave party à Redon - Le Télégramme

    Des centaines de gendarmes mobiles ont empêché la tenue d’une rave dans la nuit de vendredi 18 à samedi 19 juin à Redon. un jeune homme a eu la main arrachée.
    Le Télégramme/Claire Staes

    Dans une lettre ouverte au préfet d’Ille-et-Vilaine et au ministère de l’Intérieur, l’observatoire Rennais des libertés publiques demande des comptes.

    Un tag sur un immeuble de Rennes. « Une main arrachée pour avoir dansé, la vengeance sera ». L’inscription est signalée par l’observatoire Rennais des libertés publiques (Orlib), dans une lettre ouverte au préfet d’Ille-et-Vilaine et au ministre de l’Intérieur suite aux affrontements entre jeunes et forces de l’ordre la rave party de Redon, le week-end dernier. Des pensées pour le jeune homme « dont la vie entière va se trouver bouleversée », et une longue série de questions pour lesquelles l’observatoire demande « des réponses claires ».

    « Était-il nécessaire et indispensable d’inonder de gaz lacrymogène la prairie occupée par ces jeunes ; de lancer des grenades de désencerclement (qui était encerclé ??) dont la dangerosité n’a cessé d’être dénoncée depuis les premières manifestations de Gilets Jaunes au cours desquelles il y a eu une multitude de mutilations graves ? » interroge l’observatoire, en rappelant que la Ligue des droits de l’Homme n’a cessé de prôner la désescalade depuis la mise en place du Schéma national du maintien de l’ordre.

    Votre responsabilité est engagée
    Le regroupement d’associations et de syndicats interroge les pouvoirs publics sur les objectifs assignés aux forces de l’ordre ce soir-là. « Etaient-elles là pour assurer la sécurité sanitaire et physique des participants ou pour contraindre ces jeunes « à se tenir sages », y compris en détruisant le matériel de son ? ». Et de rappeler les propos du président de la République à destination d’une jeunesse enfermée depuis 18 mois, les enjoignant à s’amuser face à l’impact de la crise.

    « Les jeunes présents à Redon sont nos enfants […] et si nous leur disons « Ne cherchez pas la vengeance et ayez confiance en la justice ! » y compris sur ce volet, votre responsabilité est engagée, notamment en facilitant toutes les démarches qui permettront de reconstituer la chaîne de commandement ayant abouti à un tel désastre, et en apportant toute la transparence sur l’enquête diligentée », poursuit l’observatoire, qui précise recueillir de son côté des « témoignages et des documents », et ne « manquera pas de transmettre ceux qui lui paraîtront de nature à éclairer la justice ».

  • Read #Britney_Spears' full statement from her conservatorship hearing: ’I am traumatized’
    https://www.usatoday.com/story/entertainment/celebrities/2021/06/24/britney-spears-full-statement-conservatorship-hearing/5333532001
    https://img-s-msn-com.akamaized.net/tenant/amp/entityid/AALmNPw.img?h=630&w=1200&m=6&q=60&o=t&l=f&f=jpg&x=2281&y=12

    to recap: I was on tour in 2018. I was forced to do. My management said if I don’t do this tour, I will have to find an attorney, and by contract my own management could sue me if I didn’t follow through with the tour. He handed me a sheet of paper as I got off the stage in Vegas and said I had to sign it. It was very threatening and scary. And with the conservatorship, I couldn’t even get my own attorney. So out of fear, I went ahead and I did the tour.

    #free_britney

    • Three days later, after I said no to Vegas, my therapist sat me down in a room and said he had a million phone calls about how I was not cooperating in rehearsals, and I haven’t been taking my medication. All this was false. He immediately, the next day, put me on lithium out of nowhere. He took me off my normal meds I’ve been on for five years. And lithium is a very, very strong and completely different medication compared to what I was used to. You can go mentally impaired if you take too much, if you stay on it longer than five months. But he put me on that and I felt drunk. I really couldn’t even take up for myself. I couldn’t even have a conversation with my mom or dad really about anything. I told him I was scared, and my doctor had me on six different nurses with this new medication, come to my home, stay with me to monitor me on this new medication, which I never wanted to be on to begin with. There were six different nurses in my home and they wouldn’t let me get in my car to go anywhere for a month.

    • Not only did my family not do a goddamn thing, my dad was all for it. Anything that happened to me had to be approved by my dad. And my dad only acted like he didn’t know that I was told I had to be tested over the Christmas holidays before they sent me away, when my kids went to home to Louisiana. He was the one who approved all of it. My whole family did nothing.

    • “I’m sorry, Britney, you have to listen to your doctors. They’re planning to send you to a small home in Beverly Hills to do a small rehab program that we’re going to make up for you. You’re going to pay $60,000 a month for this.”

    • The control he had over someone as powerful as me — as he loved the control to hurt his own daughter 100,000%. He loved it. I packed my bags and went to that place. I worked seven days a week, no days off, which in California, the only similar thing to this is called sex trafficking. Making anyone work against their will, taking all their possessions away — credit card, cash, phone, passport, car — and placing them in a home where they work with the people who live with them. They all lived in the house with me, the nurses, the 24/7 security. There was one chef that came there and cooked for me daily during the weekdays. They watched me change every day — naked – morning, noon and night. My body – I had no privacy, (no) door for my room. I gave eight vials of blood a week.

    • I want changes, and I want changes going forward. I deserve changes. I was told I have to sit down and be evaluated, again, if I want to end the conservatorship. Ma’am, I didn’t know I could petition the conservatorship to end it. I’m sorry for my ignorance, but I honestly didn’t know that. But honestly, but I don’t think I owe anyone to be evaluated. I’ve done more than enough. I don’t feel like I should even be in room with anyone to offend me by trying to question my capacity of intelligence, whether I need to be in this stupid conservatorship or not. I’ve done more than enough.

    • I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive, and that we can sit here all day and say “Oh, conservatorships are here to help people.” But ma’am, there’s a thousand conservatorships that are abusive as well.

      je ne sais pas ce que ce serait l’équivalent en france, la mise sous tutelle ? ça me fait un peu pensé aux #informations_préoccupantes, dans le genre outils de contrôle soit disant faits pour « aider ».

    • #exposition

      I’m not willing to go to Westlake and be embarrassed by all these paparazzi, these scummy paparazzi laughing at my face while I’m crying, coming out and taking my pictures as all these white nice dinners, where people (are) drinking wine at restaurants, watching these places. They set me up by sending me to the most exposed places, and I told them I didn’t want to go there because I knew paparazzi would show up there.

    • I deserve to have a life. I’ve worked my whole life. I deserve to have a two to three year break and just, you know, do what I want to do. But I do feel like there is a crutch here. And I feel open and I’m okay to talk to you today about it. But I wish I could stay with you on the phone forever, because when I get off the phone with you, all of a sudden all I hear (is) all these no’s — no, no, no. And then all of a sudden I get– I feel ganged up on and I feel bullied and I feel left out and alone. And I’m tired of feeling alone. I deserve to have the same rights as anybody does, by having a child, a family, any of those things, and more so.

      And that’s all I wanted to say to you. And thank you so much for letting me speak to you today.

  • Montpellier : le maire de gauche Mickaël Delafosse porte plainte contre ses agents en grève | Rapports de Force
    https://rapportsdeforce.fr/breves/montpellier-le-maire-de-gauche-mickael-delafosse-porte-plainte-contr

    L’objet de l’indignation de celui qui se verrait bien un destin national : la « violence », qualifiée d’intolérable par Michaël Delafosse, que ses agents, principalement des femmes occupant des emplois précaires d’Atsem dans les écoles, ont exercé sur la grille de l’Hôtel de Ville. Grille derrière laquelle la municipalité de gauche s’était barricadée préventivement pendant le rassemblement de 300 grévistes mardi. Un brin revancharde, la mairie socialiste a aussi annoncé mercredi matin aux organisations syndicales que les vidéos de surveillance seraient utilisées afin de lancer des procédures disciplinaires internes. Avec pour résultat de décrocher l’UNSA de l’intersyndicale (CGT, FO, CFDT) qui appelait la veille à la grève contre les 1607 heures.

    Le divorce semble bien consommé entre les femmes travaillant dans les écoles ou les crèches et la nouvelle équipe municipale. La mairie dans son communiqué osant écrire à leur propos « cette posture est d’autant plus inacceptable pour des fonctionnaires tenus à un devoir d’exemplarité et qui exercent notamment auprès des enfants ». Déjà, le 8 février 2021, la majorité municipale (PS, EELV, PCF, PRG, Génération écologie) votait en conseil municipal la limitation du droit de grève des agents territoriaux, sur fond de mobilisation à répétition dans les cantines scolaires.

    Fives, Lille Sud, Moulins, les années se suivent et le traitement médiatique des faits divers dans les quartiers populaires par La Voix du Nord (VDN) se ressemblent. À croire que le rédac-chef et ses journalistes se shootent au sensationnel qui touche les plus précaires et les personnes racisées. Alors que le sinistre de l’intérieur Darmanin s’extasie à chaque nouveau fait divers, excité comme une puce à l’idée de pouvoir faire sa com’ aux dépens des quartiers populaires.

  • Bérangère Stassin : (cyber)harcèlement, sortir de la violence à l’école et sur les écrans – Des avenues et des fleurs
    https://blogs.letemps.ch/dunia-miralles/2021/06/24/berangere-stassin-cyberharcelement-sortir-de-la-violence-a-lecole-et-sur-les-ecrans/amp

    Dans son livre (Cyber)harcèlement, sortir de la violence à l’école et sur les écrans, paru chez C&F Editions, Bérengère Stassin explique et décortique, d’une manière accessible à chacun, les mécanismes des différents types de violences tout en nous en donnant les définitions. Elle explique également les conséquences physiques et psychologiques qu’engendrent ces agressions sur le court et le long terme. Ce livre a été pensé comme un ouvrage de synthèse, une revue des faits d’actualités qui dès lors qu’on les analyse, se montrent éclairants sur le mécanisme des phénomènes de violence et de harcèlement et de la manière dont cela continue hors de l’école. Il est aussi question des actions préventives et éducatives menées au sein de différents établissements scolaires.

    Ce livre vous permettra de reconnaître les exactions que votre enfant subit peut-être à l’école ou que vous pouvez subir vous-même dans le cadre d’une association, de votre travail, d’une activité sportive ou autre… L’ouvrage, édité en France, donne des adresses valables pour l’Hexagone mais, à la fin de cet article, j’insérerai quelques liens d’associations qui apportent un soutien aux victimes, surtout aux plus jeunes, qui sont confrontées à ce problème, hélas, en expansion.

  • The Extrajudicial Execution Of Ahmad Erekat ← Forensic Architecture
    https://forensic-architecture.org/investigation/the-extrajudicial-execution-of-ahmad-erekat

    On 23 June 2020, Ahmad Erekat, a 26-year-old Palestinian, was shot by Israeli occupation forces after his car crashed into a booth at the ‘Container’ checkpoint between Jerusalem and Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank. Working in collaboration with the Palestinian human rights organisation Al-Haq, Forensic Architecture’s Palestine Unit was asked by the Erekat family to examine the incident. Using 3D modeling, shadow analysis and open-source investigation, we established the circumstances of the crash of Ahmad’s car, the use of lethal force, the denial of medical aid that followed, and the degrading treatment of Ahmad’s body. Our analysis raises major questions about Ahmad’s killing that raise doubts in the Israeli army’s claims and call for further investigation.

    Working in collaboration with the Palestinian human rights organisation Al-Haq, Forensic Architecture’s Palestine Unit was asked by the Erekat family to examine the incident.

    We sought to establish:
    1. the circumstances of the crash of Ahmad’s car,
    2. the use of lethal force,
    3. the denial of medical aid that followed, and
    4. the degrading treatment of Ahmad’s body.

    The available evidence included images and videos taken by bystanders and journalists, a recording of a security camera operated by the Israeli army, and testimonies of bystanders and medical staff.

    Based on a survey of the checkpoint, we built a detailed 3D model.

  • Reality of a West Bank outpost: Four dead Palestinians and drone spraying tear gas
    Amira Hass Jun. 23, 2021 7:06 PM - Updated: Jun. 24, 2021 12:51 PM - Haaretz.com
    https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/.premium.MAGAZINE-reality-of-a-west-bank-outpost-four-dead-palestinians-and

    The protest around the illegal outpost of Evyatar has claimed four lives in six weeks. Palestinians on whose lands the outpost was built tell of armed civilians walking amidst Israeli soldiers

    Among the four residents of Beita who have been killed since mid-May in protests over the establishment of the illegal outpost Evyatar, Dr. Issa Barham is the only one who didn’t “merit” the same generic statement that the Israeli army spokesperson issues whenever there is a Palestinian casualty. A statement such as: “there were disturbances… the army is familiar with the report that a Palestinian was killed.” Barham, 41, was a legal scholar who specialized in international criminal law and worked in the Palestinian prosecutor’s office in the district of Salfit. He came to the protest in order to help evacuate the wounded. He was past the age of the youngsters who clamber over the terraced hills, race down the paths wending among the olive groves, burn tires, throw stones at soldiers a dozen meters away or more, and flee from tear gas. This is a protest that demands above average physical fitness and light feet.

    On Friday, May 14, there weren’t enough ambulances to take the sheer numbers of wounded and the mosques called on people to bring cars, says Barham’s brother Sultan. One of the responders was Barham.

    It was the second day of Eid al-Fitr, the holiday marking the end of the month-long Ramadan fast; the fourth day of the war in Gaza; and the twelfth day since the illegal outpost began to arise, and fast, on land belonging to Beita, Qablan and Yatma.

    That Friday there were demonstrations throughout the West Bank. Ten Palestinians were killed by Israeli gunfire, four of them in the Nablus area alone. Barham was one of them. About 1,650 people were injured. The Palestinian Red Crescent called for blood donations.

    A protester who had been near Barham relates that there were soldiers about 200 meters away from them. He also noticed armed Israeli civilians on the slope, near another group of soldiers. “Settlers,” he concluded.

    That is a detail repeated by a number of witnesses in Beita: alongside the soldiers, who are spread out in several groups, are armed Israeli civilians. One of the witnesses mentioned armed Israeli civilians when he told B’Tselem field researcher Salma a-Daba’i about seeing Barham.

    Barham had been driving towards him along a dirt road between olive groves, in his white Hyundai Tucson SUV, and asked him, “Where are the wounded?” Several had already been taken in another car. Others, including one in serious condition, were still waiting among the trees, whether to be evacuated on stretchers by ambulances or for support to get to a car. Barham parked and started to walk toward the wounded. The witness saw that one soldier – from the distant group – lowered himself to sniping position. The witness didn’t think the soldier would shoot; he thought maybe he just wanted to put the wind up in the people. At that spot, at that moment, things were relatively calm. Everyone was busy with the wounded.

    Suddenly the witness heard one shot. “I saw Issa fall to the ground on his back,” he told a-Daba’i. Barham was hit in the middle of his abdomen. He was still breathing and had a pulse when he was put into another volunteer’s car to be taken to the field hospital set up in Beita, then to an ambulance. Soldiers were blocking the main entrance to the village; the ambulance drove north on the narrow winding roads of Beita, Odala and Awarta. En route the ambulance crew tried to resuscitate Issa. But at Al-Najah Hospital in Nablus, he weas declared deceased.

    We need to describe the topography in order to understand what’s going on there.

    The demonstrations take place on Mount Sabih, which has several peaks: Evyatar is on the highest, most southern one. As the crow flies, the distance between it and the other, lower peaks is about half a kilometer (0.3 miles). One of the other peaks has a fenced swimming pool surrounded by a garden. On Fridays at midday protest prayers are declaimed by the pool; then the more daring of the demonstrators begin to spread out on the mountain and down the wadi. The soldiers are already waiting for them, far away; they fire tear gas at the protesters, followed by rubber-coated bullets. Another point of assembly is one of the westerly peaks, near large storage buildings. The soldiers and armed Israeli civilians are usually positioned above the demonstrators. Sometimes soldiers travel on the dirt roads of the groves towards the demonstrators, dismount from their armored vehicles, then from a distance of a few dozen meters, fire tear gas and coated metal bullets. Sometimes soldiers, unnoticed before, suddenly appear out of the wadi. Sometimes soldiers prostrate themselves to sniping position, and fire live bullets.

    On the slopes of the southern peak the young people burn tires, hoping the black smoke will reach the settlers in the outpost who invaded their land. They would prefer to climb as close as possible to the outpost, but as one climbs, the mountain grows steeper and the trees are sparse.

    The military spokesman commented to Haaretz: “Violent disorderly conduct … endangers the lives of Israeli civilians … which is why a military force was deployed at the site.” But the armed Israeli civilians choose to leave the outpost and descend down the mountain towards the unarmed demonstrators, and the soldiers’ lives are not in any danger, the demonstrators explained to Haaretz.

    The number of demonstrators ranges from a few dozen to several hundred, depending on the day and the time. “We deploy here in protest every day, at night too,” said one of the demonstrators to Haaretz last week. He didn’t use the term “nighttime harassment,” which apparently joined the jargon just this week, whether spontaneously by demonstrators, or intentionally by spokesmen associated with Hamas, who echo the Gazan attempt to engage and confuse the army along the separation barrier.

    The demonstrators are in groups that can number anywhere from three to 10 young people. “Sometimes we sit like at a picnic, on a rock, next to a tree,” said Mohammed Hamayel, brother of Zakaria Hamayel. Mohammed was right next to Zakaria when he was killed on May 28. “People stay several meters from one another, and then if they’re wounded – nobody sees the moment of injury. That’s what happened with Zakaria. He had moved several meters away from me and my other brother and our cousin, looking for a place to recite the afternoon prayer. That was at about 4 P.M. We saw a group of soldiers and heard the shot, but at first we didn’t know that he was the one who was wounded.”

    Meanwhile, a medical team nearby was treating a man shot through the leg. The bullet went in one side and out the other. When the shouting “Ambulance, ambulance” began, some of the team started to run over.

    The terrain is rocky. Soldiers, and a number of armed settlers, had positioned themselves at a higher point. The shooters were perhaps a few dozen meters from Zakaria, one of the demonstrators told Haaretz; another estimated the distance at about 150 meters. Anyway, as the volunteers and the medical team were coming in Zakaria’s direction, the soldiers fired at them, one of them told Haaretz. One of the rescuers was hit in the thigh by a rubber-coated metal bullet. He had been dressed, as they all were, in the phosphorescent vest worn by medics. Tear gas grenades were fired at them even as they carried Zakaria on a stretcher. One of the rescuers was hit by a gas grenade in the face.

    Zakaria, 26, had taught Arabic in a school in Bir Nabala, south of Ramallah. The bullet entered his torso from the right. He suffered from internal hemorrhage and was bleeding profusely from his mouth and his nose. Two witnesses told Haaretz that he had been shot by an armed civilian; one said that the civilian was wearing a red shirt. Another said that the shooter was dressed in black. Another witness said that it was the soldiers who fired, but that there were armed civilians next to them.

    The army spokesperson later stated: “At this point the reason for the shooting is unknown.” He did not directly answer Haaretz’s question if they’re checking the claim that the shooter was a civilian, issuing only the generic statement that the military police investigative unit is investigating, following which any findings will be sent to the military prosecution.

    The army spokesman also told Haaretz that when necessary, soldiers use live fire in compliance with the rules of engagement.

    What in the conduct of Zakaria Hamayel and Issa Barham, and the distance between them and the soldiers, required the soldiers to fire on them with live and lethal fire, hitting their torsos? What in the location and behavior of Mohammed Hamayel, a 16-year-old high school student, who was killed on June 11, “required” the use of live fire against him? The army isn’t saying.

    “We went out to demonstrate after the afternoon prayer, at about 12:50,” M., a student in Al-Najah, told Haaretz. “We spread out in the area of the storage buildings (on the western peak), where we also prayed, among the olive trees. We saw two buses unloading soldiers and therefore kept our distance from them. I was there for several hours, fleeing from the gas, hiding among the trees, resting, advancing towards the top. At about 5 P.M. I found myself next to another two guys – Mohammed and his cousin. We know each other from the neighborhood. We didn’t throw stones. We saw four soldiers. One soldier picked up his weapon. I thought he wouldn’t fire, or at most would fire a rubber-coated metal bullet. The soldier fired twice, Mohammed and his cousin fell, and I was in shock. I froze in place. I didn’t know what to do.” He said that Mohammed had concealed his face; other witnesses didn’t remember that detail.

    Another witness told Haaretz that the four soldiers, at a distance of a few dozen meters, were lying on the ground, aiming their rifles. Other soldiers around them fired tear gas. The sound of the firing of the gas grenades and the rubber-coated metal bullets muffled the sound of the live fire. The cousin was shot in the shoulder. The bullet that hit Mohammed entered the center of his chest, exited from the left and penetrated his left arm, near the shoulder.

    The wounded cousin managed to run on his own in the direction of the rescuers. At first they thought that he was the only casualty; then they discovered Mohammed, bleeding. One of his evacuators told Haaretz. “I ran towards him. The soldiers fired tear gas at us. There was so much tear gas that I didn’t see his wound. We were suffocating. I don’t know how we continued to carry him on the stretcher, while we were having a hard time seeing the path, among the rocks and trees and terraces.” Later the army spokesman stated: “We know of a Palestinian claim about a young man who was killed, and wounded men.”

    On June 18 another high school student, Ahmad Bani Shamseh, was killed. The army spokesperson said that he had thrown an explosive at a soldier which is why he was shot. Haaretz was has not yet obtaine testimony about the circumstances.

    The army spokesperson didn’t answer Haaretz’s questions as to whether soldiers were wounded at those demonstrations in Beita, and whether it’s true that the drone that fires tear gas at the demonstrators comes from Evyatar and is activated from inside the outpost.

    Regarding the repeated eyewitness reports that tear gas grenades were fired at medical teams and people evacuating the wounded, and that Red Crescent ambulances that work in the Beita area come under attack, the spokesman replied: “The IDF forces do not use means of crowd-dispersal at demonstrations or fire at medical personnel and ambulances deliberately.”

    The conversations with the families of Zakaria Hamayel and Issa Barham lasted for hours, durign which they relived their lives. The beehives that Zakaria put next to the house constrict his brother’s throat.

    “Not only their deaths: their lives also deserve to be written about,” said Barham’s uncle and father-in-law, Ziad Bani Shamseh, grandfather to Issa’s four children. Asinat, the eldest, is 7, Maryam, the youngest, is a a toddler a year-and-a-half old. He has two sons, 6-year-old Yihye and Mohammed, 4-and-a-half. They’re too young to understand what death is, he said. Issa’s brother, Sultan, said: “A few days ago a white SUV like Issa’s stopped next to the house. His children shouted happily: Daddy’s here, Daddy’s here.”

    La fin d’année est souvent synonyme de stress concernant les resultats des examens de nos enfants... Et si des tonnes de profs sont incroyables et acompagnent leurs élèves avec beaucoup de bienveillance (et on leur dit MERCI), il y en a quand même d’autres qui... hum hum... ont des pratiques ou des valeurs assez étonnantes ! Vous aussi, parfois, vous réalisez que certaines méthodes dans l’enseignement sont devenues obsolètes... ? Et même si je connais et comprends la difficulté de ce beau métier, j’avais envie d’exprimer certaines situations qui m’étonneront toujours ! Merci d’avance pour vos partages et vos commentaires, vivent les profs impliqués et bienveillants et bonne attente des résultats à vous tous !

    Le rachat se traduit par l’arrivée de Thomas Simonnet, directeur de collection chez Gallimard, comme directeur éditorial de Minuit.

    Minuit, c’est fini donc. « Être édité aux Éditions de Minuit fait qu’un livre n’est pas tout à fait le même que s’il était paru chez Grasset ou au Seuil », disait Lindon. Il aurait pu rajouter Gallimard, ça n’aurait rien changé.

  • Einkommen mit Tarif​: Mehr Geld bei weniger Arbeitszeit​ | heise online
    https://www.heise.de/news/Einkommen-mit-Tarif-Mehr-Geld-bei-weniger-Arbeitszeit-6116280.html

    23.06.2021 - von Peter Ilg - In Unternehmen mit Tarifverträgen verdienen Beschäftigten laut Analyse der IG Metall mehr als in Firmen ohne Tarifbindung. Und sie haben kürzere Arbeitswochen.​

    Die IG Metall erhebt jährlich die Daten von Beschäftigten in der Informationstechnologie- und Telekommunikationsbranche und erstellt daraus eine Entgeltanalyse. Einkommen ist ein Synonym für den sperrigen Begriff Entgelt. Für die aktuelle Studie wurden in 120 Betrieben die Einkommensdaten von 41.700 Beschäftigten ermittelt. Das ist eine ganze Menge und das Ergebnis zunächst wenig spektakulär: insgesamt gab es für die Beschäftigten in der ITK-Branche im vergangenen Jahr ganz leichte Einkommenszuwächse. Die lagen bei 0,2 Prozent.

    Das kann man stabil nennen, oder auch stagnierend. Schließlich wird selbst in Corona-Zeiten von Branchenverbänden wie dem Bitkom ein IT-Facharbeitermangel beklagt. So groß scheint der nicht zu sein bei diesem kleinen Gehaltszuwachs.

    Tarif macht den Unterschied
    Weitaus bemerkenswerter ist die Differenz zwischen Gehältern in tarifgebundenen Unternehmen und denen in Unternehmen ohne. Diese Beschäftigten mit Tarif verdienen 14 Prozent mehr als die in Firmen ohne Tarifbindung. Das liege am positiven Effekt der Tarifbindung, begründet die IG Metall. Eine Tarifbindung besteht dann, wenn der Arbeitgeber dem Arbeitgeberverband und der Arbeitnehmer der Gewerkschaft angehört, die den Tarifvertrag abgeschlossen haben.

    Alternativ dazu kann der Arbeitgeber auch selbst mit einer Gewerkschaft einen sogenannten Haus- oder Firmentarifvertrag abschließen, an den er dann gebunden ist. In diesem Fall muss der Arbeitnehmer Mitglied der tarifschließenden Gewerkschaft sein, damit der Tarifvertrag auf sein Arbeitsverhältnis anwendbar ist. Tarifverträge regeln die Rechte und Pflichten von Arbeitnehmern und Arbeitgeber, etwa Löhne und Gehälter sowie Arbeitszeiten.

    Weil es in Tarifverträgen nicht nur um Geld, sondern auch um Zeit geht, wurden in die Entgeltanalyse der IG Metall auch die durchschnittlichen Wochenarbeitszeiten erfasst. Und auch in diesem Punkt kommen Beschäftigte mit Tarif besser weg als ohne. Zwei Drittel der Beschäftigten mit Tarifvertrag arbeiten 37,5 Stunden oder weniger. Bei den Beschäftigten ohne Tarifvertrag sind es nur knapp 7 Prozent, alle anderen arbeiten länger. Mehr arbeiten für weniger Geld – so lässt sich die Situation ohne Tarif zusammenfassen.

    Appell an junge Leute

    Christiane Benner, zweite Vorsitzende der IG Metall kommentiert die Ergebnisse der Erhebung für die Mitglieder der Gewerkschaft positiv: „Die Ergebnisse der Befragung bestätigen wieder einmal, dass Beschäftigte in Unternehmen mit Tarifbindung besser bezahlt werden.“ Das kam in den Analysen der vergangenen Jahre immer wieder heraus. „Es ist davon auszugehen, dass junge Fachkräfte im IT-Bereich ihre Jobentscheidungen künftig noch stärker daran orientieren, ob ihr Arbeitgeber tarifgebunden ist“, so Benner weiter.

    Tarifverträge seien nicht nur die Grundlage für bessere Verdienste, sondern für bessere Arbeitsbedingungen insgesamt, etwa familienfreundliche Arbeitszeiten. Diese Aussagen von Benner sind gleichzeitig ein Appell an junge Leute, der IG Metall beizutreten. Je mehr Mitglieder eine Gewerkschaft hat, umso größer ist ihre Macht, etwa bei Tarifverhandlungen.

    Organisationsgrad in der IT-Branche unter Durchschnitt
    Etwa 7,3 Millionen Arbeitnehmer sind in Deutschland Mitglied einer Gewerkschaft. Bei etwa 33,5 Millionen sozialversicherungspflichtigen Beschäftigten und Beamten bedeutet das, dass jeder Fünfte gewerkschaftlich organisiert ist. Die IG Metall war 2020 mit rund 2,2 Millionen Mitgliedern die größte Gewerkschaft in Deutschland. Vor zehn Jahren waren es 1,8 Millionen, vor 20 Jahren 2,3 Millionen. Die Zahlen schwanken zwar, sind aber seit etwa einem viertel Jahrhundert stabil. Die gewerkschaftliche Organisation hat Bestand.

    Allerdings liegt der Anteil der Betriebe und Beschäftigten ohne Tarifbindung und betriebliche Interessenvertretung im IKT-Sektor im Durchschnitt unter der Industrie, steht im Branchenmonitor IKT der gewerkschaftsnahen Hans Böckler Stiftung. „Den gewerkschaftlichen Organisationsgrad in der IKT-Branche kommunizieren wir aus strategischen Gründen nicht“, teilt die IG Metall auf Nachfrage mit. Das macht die Gewerkschaft, um bei Tarifabschlüssen eine starke Verhandlungsposition zu haben.

    Entgeltanalyse online verfügbar

    Die Daten für die vorliegende Entgeltanalyse wurden im vierten Quartal des Vorjahres bei Betriebsräten, in Personalbüros und bei Einzelpersonen aufgenommen. Beteiligt haben sich Software-Häuser, IT-Services-, Beratungs- und Consulting-Unternehmen sowie reine Call Center. Vertreten sind Niederlassungen großer internationaler Unternehmen, zahlreiche mittelständische Firmen und Kleinbetriebe. Das zugrundeliegende Entgelt der Analyse ist das tatsächliche Jahresbruttoeinkommen. Daher sind zusätzliche Zahlungen wie Urlaubsgeld, 13. Monatseinkommen und Jahressonderzahlungen berücksichtigt.

    Feste und variable Einkommensbestandteile wurden differenziert erhoben und in der Auswertung gesondert ausgewiesen. Unterschiedliche Arbeitszeiten wurden auf die Basisarbeitszeit 35 Stunden pro Woche umgerechnet. Das Ergebnis aller erfassten Daten ist pro Job als gewichteter Mittelwert berechnet und dient als Basis für den Jahresvergleich.

    Die Entgeltanalyse stellt die IG Metall kostenlos und online zur Verfügung. Sie liefert eine Vielzahl an Einkommensdaten für gängige ITK-Tätigkeiten auf verschiedenen Hierarchiestufen. Die Tätigkeiten wurden in 16 Jobfamilien eingeteilt und 74 Hierarchiestufen zugeordnet. So gibt es fürs Software Engineering gleich fünf unterschiedlichen Gehaltsangaben auf unterschiedlichem Jobniveau. Welche Tätigkeiten eine Hierarchieebene umfasst, ist beschrieben. Für die Berechnung des durchschnittlichen Einkommens in einem ITK-Job können die wöchentlichen Arbeitszeiten von 15 bis 45 Stunden variiert werden und das eigene Gehalt lässt sich mit dem durchschnittlichen Einkommen der Entgeltstudie vergleichen.
