 Installed

behind a locked glass case, the bottle shop Julhès shone in the tenth arrondissement of Paris for about a year. On July 30, the Balvenie 50, whisky1 rare, disappeared from his shelf, stolen by an individual. "A professional," according to Nicolas Julhès, co-founder of the grocery Julhès. By mid-afternoon, the man enters the store, look, pretended to be interested in the dozen bottles surrounding the precious behind the window. Suddenly, in 10 seconds, he pick the lock, took the Balvenie 50 and hides in an extremely clever then goes away. Acquired

last year for 23,400 euros -Investment result for the family business carried by the two brothers Julhès- the bottle was ironically the # 13 88 Balvenie 50 specimens scattered around the world. This valuable vintage comes from the work of David Stewart, Grand Master of Scotch whiskey. "We wanted her to stay a while for the prestige of the store, we had already rejected two bids," says Nicolas Julhès. "On this kind of bottle, the store would not have made big financial gain, he added, it mainly allows us to expand the influence of the store."

"The mobilization of collectors, enthusiasts, brief community whiskey worldwide hit us"

Nicolas Juhlès , co-founder of the grocery Julhès

The acquisition of this bottle had already talked about. No one expected her to land in this small shop in Paris. This type of luxurious and rare elixir is associated with the image of palaces 2or every sip of alcohol costs 600 euros, rather than a showcase of the Faubourg Saint-Denis fast payday loan no faxing. Yet the family épicerie3 possessed indeed, and "everyone knew she was home."  

Theft and burglary in the world of wine and spirits are numerous, and almost surprising. The forger of Burgundy ruled week.4 this is the perfect embodiment. But the flight of Balvenie 50 conducted in daylight seems a sacrilege. If its period of maturation in oak sherry -50 years-partly explains its enormous value, especially what it is that makes it unique and important to the lovers of whiskey. David Stewart made sure this was the moment she entered the distillery, he took care of him and waited year after year that whiskey takes age, as reported by Nicolas Julhès. Only 50 years later, last year, the famous cellar master has decided to distribute the precious liquid in 88 vials. "It's rarity makes it a valuable object we are here in a logic of luxe5, collectors' illuminates Nicolas Julhès. The value of the bottle could rise to 30,000 euros he said.

Unfortunately for the thief – or if we rely on suspicions Julhès, Sponsor – this bottle is impossible to spare. She's too recognizable by his No. 13, the "cursed whiskey" as it is now called. His story quickly made the rounds of the world community of connoisseurs and enthusiasts amber brew. Many have to have sent messages of support to the grocery store Julhès and have passed new around them. Maybe she will reappear …

Economic policy: Holland Valls and cling to their course

Tag: international, news, people, special, traveladmin @ 12:28 am

 

Why change a policy that does not work? Growth may well be zero, François Hollande 1s'en lies in the roadmap that has set December 31, 2013 and he subsequently clarified on January 14. At the 70th anniversary of the landing in Provence2 Friday it has raised the wrong digit INSEE indirectly, a sentence at the conclusion of his speech at the memorial of Mount Faron on "France, fifth economic power world and that means in its reforms, remain at that level. "

All indicators are nevertheless a potential worsening of the situation. GDP stagnated in the second quarter, as it had done in premier.3 Industrial production fell 0.5% between March and June. Business investment fell 0.8%. The trade deficit is still in the red and unemployment continues to rise and reaches 10.1% of the workforce. In early summer, Manuel Valls 4puis Hollande had also anticipated this deterioration, the head of state even evoking, August 4, "a real risk of deflation." The never-seen with the president, who had not abandoned his optimism for his now famous "recovery, it is" of 14 July 2013 …….

But … this brutal return to reality will apparently not impact the program returned from the executive. This is the conclusion of the workshop that were formed Holland and Valls midday Friday at Fort Brégançon5. For a little less than three hours, lunch melon-rib-including fruits, they sought how to maintain their course "with insight and fighting," said a presidential adviser. Sylvie Hubac, Chief of Staff at the Elysee, Gilles Gateau, Deputy Chief of Staff at Matignon and social advisor, and Gaspard Gantzer, head of communication of the Head of State, joined them for coffee. Upon his return

Hyeres, Manuel Valls said he was not surprised by the growth figures. "I myself had said on August 1 that we were going to have a difficult re-entry, he has said. I want to tell the truth to the French, I'm not here to hide the reality. "The Prime Minister said that" far too low growth "called further reform" as well as initiatives for investment in European ". New lunch

The government has yet to plead his case once at the summit to install the new européenne6 Commission, on August 30. The Minister of Economy, Michel Sapin7, set the tone in an article published by The Mondedaté August 15 where he tries to show "why we must refocus European economic policies." "France will not reach its goal this year in terms of its fiscal deficit despite total control of our spending," he laments. He believes that GDP growth "should be of the order of 0.5%" in 2014, instead of 1% under the amended Finance Act and adds: "There is no reason at present to predict 2015 is much higher than 1% growth. "

only source of consolation, the executive seems to preclude any further increase the tax burden," as was the case in the years 2010 to 2013, with the now known in terms of household purchasing and reduced investment capacity of enterprises' power effects, writes Michel Sapin. The Minister of Economy fails to mention that the levies have increased at a rapid pace since 2012 and have not dropped since. He does not say, either, what 'alternative measures' will restore two devices censored by the Council constitutionnel8: relief of employee contributions and lower taxes on jobs at home. A counselor

Holland confirms that the topic was discussed over lunch at Brégançon. They also talked about the "tax act" waited for the start but, according to the president's entourage, "has not yet been finally adjudicated." They returned on sites already programmed, including the revival of learning and the construction of housing. And, of course, discussed the situation in Iraq and Ukraine.

The tax and benefit package should be ready no later than the submission of the draft budget 2015 Cabinet in late September but the executive n did not intend to stay silent until then. Cabinet re-entry will be next Wednesday and the day before, Francois Hollande, and Manuel Valls have lunch together once again to study the timing of announcements and develop a communication strategy to show that, in adversity, they are more united than ever.

At the risk of losing a little soul. Because if the customer is split between European visitors arrived there by chance and Asian tourists spotting a known brand, some are disappointed to find croissants, sandwiches and other very classic salads without any exotic touch. Message received, it seems, by management since the house has begun offering an innovation to the French concocted since Korea. Called "saucer Châtelet," this dessert is almond tuile swollen custard. A culinary UFO halfway between giant flying saucer and madeleine to distinguish the face of stiff competition in Paris.

The previously preferred placement of French goes from 1.25% to 1% on Friday 1 August3 . This rate was reduced from 1.75% to 1.25% on August 1, 2013, and tumbled to the lowest level in its history. But the decline would have been even greater if the government had followed the recommendations of the Bank of France, which proposed to reduce it to 0.75%.

So, from today, a booklet A ceiling (22,950 euros) will earn 229.50 euros per year, against 286.90 euros when the rate was 1.25%. And the holder of a booklet on Sustainable Development (LDD) ceiling (€ 12,000) will win 120 euros against 150 euros a year earlier.  But

A booklet rest he interesting?

The ax fell. From 1 August, the rate of the booklet A pass from 1.25% to only 1%. Historically low yield, which could have been even lower if the government had followed the recommendations of the Bank of France, which proposed to reduce it to 0.75%. For the record, this very old investment was paid 1.75% there just one year.

Now, a booklet A ceiling (22,950 euros) will earn 229.50 euros per year, against 286.90 euros when the rate was 1.25 %. And the holder of a booklet on Sustainable Development (LDD) 1 ceiling (€ 12,000) will win 120 euros against 150 euros a year earlier.

What to do in these conditions of his booklet A2? "Paradoxically, in the context of current very low interest rates, the passbook remains attractive for its precautionary savings, because his salary is hard to beat," said Cyril Blesson, Partner Pair Council. Because the passbook is not taxed, which is not the case for most other investments. Starting with passbooks, direct competitors of the booklet A, whose interests are taxed at the scale of income tax, which must be added the social security contributions. Excluding promotional periods reserved for new customers, fewer of these books relate unless the booklet A.

But other investments become today very competitive. Euro funds Insurance life.3 contracts are a good alternative, even if their remuneration is crumbling. Last year, they reported 2.8% (before social contributions). This is significantly more than 1% of the booklet A. Certainly, we must take into account any input and taxation costs. But by investing in contracts over eight years, the tax will be minimized. And ultimately, the investor is the most time winner.  

Those who have a little time on their hands (four years) may also invest cash on housing savings plans (PEL) 4 paid 2.5% (before payroll 15.5%). Especially since the interest is subject to income tax 12 years after the opening of the plan.

At $ 75, it will hold a "pizza party". Ultimate grail, 100 dollars for which gratify contributors two different salad recipes potatoes. Against all odds, mayonnaise takes.

In exchange, American offers a hat bearing the image of a potato salad or a cookbook, send it in December. This leaves a few months to organize Zack, who plans to "rent a large room to invite all Internet a feast of potato salad." While some question, however, the project should be approved by Kickstarter.

The site has softened effect there one month operating rules and the draft Zack, although delusional, meets the three conditions imposed in that the project must "propose creating something to share with others," "to be honest and clearly presented" but that the funds raised are for a "charity" and that the proposed compensatory measures are financial.
