Europe. A Lisbonne Macron expose son ambition pour le futur de l’Union européenne

Pas une question sur l’affaire Benalla. C’est devant une salle remplie seulement aux deux tiers et composée d’un public poli qu’Emmanuel Macron a déroulé, vendredi 27 juillet à Lisbonne, son ambition pour le futur de l’Union européenne. Les Portugais, profondément francophiles et pro-européens, avaient bien fait les choses. M. Macron n’a jamais été mis en difficulté, de quoi changer après dix jours de polémiques en France sur les violences reprochées à son chef de cabinet adjoint. L’auditorium de la Fondation Gulbenkian était surtout rempli d’un public composé d’expatriés français et de Portugais souvent bien apprêtés.

Amazon’s facial recognition technology falsely matched photos of 28 Lawmakers

Amazon’s facial recognition software falsely matched photos of 28 Lawmakers with mug shots of people who had been arrested, according to a report from the American Civil Liberties Union. The errors emerged as part of a larger test in which the civil liberties group used Amazon’s facial software to compare the photos of all federal lawmakers against a database of 25,000 publicly available mug shots. In the test, the Amazon technology incorrectly matched 28 members of Congress with people who had been arrested, amounting to a 5 percent error rate among legislators. “This test confirms that facial recognition is flawed, biased and dangerous,” said Jacob Snow, a technology and civil liberties lawyer with the A.C.L.U. of Northern California.

USA, Commerce Department, the latest snapshot of the American economy

The Commerce Department released its initial estimate of second-quarter economic growth on Friday, providing the latest snapshot of the American economy. United States gross domestic product rose at an annual rate of 4.1 percent in the second quarter, up from 2.2 percent in the first three months of the year. It was the strongest quarter of growth since 2014. Mr. Trump, who had said on Thursday that he would be happy with any growth figure above 4 percent, celebrated what he called the “amazing” G.D.P. number in remarks at the White House on Friday. And he pushed back against economists who say the second quarter’s growth rate is unsustainable.

Etats-Unis, plus de 700 enfants toujours séparés de leurs parents

Plus de 1 800 enfants entrés illégalement aux Etats-Unis ont été remis à leurs parents, mais plus de 700 en étaient encore séparés jeudi 26 juillet. L’administration fédérale américaine n’a donc pas réussi à réunir toutes les familles avant l’expiration du délai fixé par un juge fédéral de San Diego (Californie), Dana Sabraw. La politique de séparation pratiquée par l’administration Trump depuis l’été 2017, et amplifiée en mai, visait à dissuader les migrants venus d’Amérique centrale d’entrer sur le territoire américain via le Mexique. Le ministre de la justice, Jeff Sessions, a parlé de « zéro tolérance », mais Donald Trump a aussi prétendu qu’il ne faisait qu’appliquer une loi votée précédemment par les démocrates.

USA, Trump Organization’s Finance Chief, May Be Questioned

Prosecutors in New York want to talk to Allen Weisselberg, who has managed the finances for President Trump’s company for decades. It was not clear whether Mr. Weisselberg was issued a subpoena or was asked to answer questions voluntarily. Either way, the development suggests that federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York are scrutinizing at least some financial dealings of the Trump family business, a line that the president has publicly warned the special counsel in the Russia investigation, Robert S. Mueller III, not to cross.
