Learn about your telecommuting rights
We may be at home, but we are still at work. So what happens in the event of an accident at home during our working hours? What sanctions for companies who are reluctant to confine their employees? Can I choose my days of telecommuting? Can my employer refuse to subscribe? In these hours of confinement, the site of the Ministry of Labor answers most of the questions asked by employees and employers.
School (hobbies!) At home
Without football, judo and piano lessons, the children will perhaps go around in circles. The publishing house L’École des loisirs offers a month of pastime on its site. All you have to do is enter your email address to access filmed album readings (Blue Dog by Nadja, Stand up! by Catharina Valckx…), games (hidden words, Memory…), activities (recipes, crafts, coloring…). Thanks WHO ?
Dive into the toilets of the future
Too expensive, too greedy in water, not green, our toilets are outdated and not at all adapted to developing countries, where hundreds of millions of inhabitants are deprived of it. Alternatives are emerging, however, preventing waste and promoting the recycling of our precious urine and stool. On the occasion of World Toilet Day, an Arte documentary dives without taboos into the ultramodern toilets.

Escape to your sofa
They are slow films, sometimes disturbing, always surprising. One follows in Nathalie, a shepherdess in the Cévennes Piedmont, who learns to kill her animals. Another delves into the closed and distant universe of the Kurils, these Russian islands off the coast of Japan. Elsewhere, we travel to Lesotho, Belarus, among the Kurds… The bewitching Ethnographic Film Committee is showing its selection of documentaries free on the Internet from November 13 to December 6.
Take a lesson from the “Prof”
We don’t know if tennis is This sport that drives you crazy, as the French player Gilles Simon indicates in the title of his book. But we know a little better, reading the book by the man we nickname the “Prof”, why the French have systematically failed at Roland-Garros, Wimbledon and other Grand Slam tournaments since the coronation of Yannick Noah in 1983. What if the very wealthy French Federation and its protected trainers changed their software, wonders the author? To read during the Masters, the last tournament of the year.

Investigate the origin of relations between Islam and Christianity
Did you know that the Koran relates the crucifixion of Jesus in a very different way from the Christian tradition? That he gives an eminent place to Mary, or that he calls for many references from the Hebrew Bible? In the documentary series Jesus and Islam, again available on Arte, Gérard Mordillat and Jérôme Prieur investigate at the crossroads of the three forms of monotheism. The series takes as its starting point a careful reading of two verses of Sura IV of the Quran, and draws on the help of 26 world religious specialists.
