“However, I always saw him being involved…, saying there are some things that we should change in society in order to tackle injustices.” Mongin told The Associated Press that Macron’s political determination also comes from his singular personal life. “He is someone who took risks in his life,” Mongin said about Macron’s decision to live out his love story with an older woman. “His parents threw him out, he slammed the door. There is a life experience here, there is something a bit hard,” Mongin added. my review hereMacron has an impressive curriculum vitae. He studied philosophy, was awarded for his skills as a pianist, attended France’s elite Ecole Nationale d’Administration for graduate school and worked at Rothschild as a successful investment banker. French people discovered Macron when he was nominated economy minister in August 2014, after two years as a top adviser to Socialist President Francois Hollande. As a minister, he rapidly became a love-it-or-hate-it topic during family meals around the country.

(Los Angeles Times) The Times Editorial Board Of course people shouldnt park their cars on the citys parkways, the often grassy strip of land between the sidewalk and the street curb. Planting cars on the parkways is ugly, destructive to public infrastructure and, because the cars drive over or block the sidewalks as well, dangerous for pedestrians using the public walkways. Yet for five years, L.A. leaders have allowed the practice to flourish , essentially turning much-needed green space into parking lots and forcing walkers to share the sidewalk with vehicles. Its time to start ticketing rogue parkers again and return the sidewalks to the public.

In 2011, the city was facing several lawsuits accusing Los Angeles of violating the Americans with Disabilities Act by failing to maintain the sidewalks in a safe condition and by allowing people to park in driveway aprons the sloped space between the sidewalk and street potentially impeding disabled people trying to use the walkway. In response, the city began ticketing cars parked in the aprons. Residents were furious that their longstanding practice was suddenly unlawful. The City Council sided with the residents and directed the Department of Transportation to stop issuing tickets. But the order went further, applying to cars parked on the parkways, which the city defined as both the apron and the strip of land between the sidewalk and curb.
