Senator Laure Darcos said Amazon had made the proposal for a minimum delivery charge of 1.80-2.00 euros ($2.03-$2.25) when its vice president for Books and Kindle content, David Naggar, met Culture Minister Roselyne Bachelot on Aug.

HBO Max is stuffed with classic sci-fi flicks, as well as smaller gems well worth a watch. Aside from The Matrix and Blade Runner, there's little Spanish gem Timecrimes, Moon (starring Sam Rockwell) and Monsters (directed by Gareth Edwards).

PARIS, Dec 7 (Reuters) - Amazon proposed raising book delivery charges in France to around 2 euros from almost nothing if parliament withdrew a bill that would make it more difficult for the e-commerce group to undercut local bookshops, a French senator told Reuters.

A second lawmaker briefed by a person with first-hand knowledge of the meeting confirmed a proposal in the region of 2 euros had been made.
A third lawmaker informed of the meeting said the figure "sounded right".

Djeffal offers a taste of what airports and airlines across Europe are up against as they race to hire thousands to cope with resurgent demand, dubbed "revenge travel" as people seek to make up for vacations lost during the pandemic.

The law would only increase Amazon's margins, company officials told the second lawmaker aware of the Aug. 25 meeting, who requested anonymity because Amazon's operations are a sensitive matter in her constituency.

President Emmanuel Macron's government refused to budge, and parliament is expected to pass the bill on Dec. 19, after which a minimum shipping price for books must be agreed with the regulator before it becomes law.

The summer when air travel was supposed to return to normal after a two-year pandemic vacuum is in danger of becoming the summer when the high-volume, low-cost air travel model broke down - at least in Europe's sprawling integrated market.

Three delivery service partners said at 2pm ET that an Amazon app used to communicate with delivery drivers and track packages is down. This left vans that were supposed to deliver parcels sitting idle with no communication from the company, according to Bloomberg.

Analysts say the labor squeeze may raise costs beyond the summer, but it is too early to tell whether the industry must step back from the pre-pandemic model of ever-rising volumes and cost-cutting, which generated new routes and kept fares low.

"They were ready to increase shipping costs to 1.80-2.00 euros outside of premium subscription costs to align more closely with the delivery charges of other goods on one condition: that we withdraw our bill so that it did not benefit bookstores," Darcos told Reuters.

Independent bookshops are held with special affection in France, the land of Victor Hugo and Simone de Beauvoir. But they are under pressure from online retailers like Amazon, Fnac and Leclerc, which have eroded their market share.







"It's more comfortable packing a hair dryer or a computer in a box than heaving a 50-pound suitcase crawling into the fuselage of an airplane," said Thomas Richter, chief of the German ground-handling employers' association ABL.

Amazon went down across the globe, frustrating thousands of users who are trying to purchase Christmas gifts. DownDetector , a site that monitors online outages, shows North America, parts of Europe and Asia were all experiencing issues

Amazon sellers also reported they were unable to log into Seller Central, an internal website used to manage customer orders, according to The outage came during the company's critical holiday shopping season and could potentially create lasting log-jams at a time when there is already a critical crunch on the supply chain.

It was fundamentally flawed in comparison with a show like, say, Yellowjackets - which masked its own themes of trauma under the guise of a cunning and compelling mystery box show.  It took itself way too seriously.

You can sometimes find it discounted or you can get educational pricing from Apple and other retailers. Deciding between MacOS and Windows laptop for many people will come down to personal preference and budget.

Obviously, there are just so many examples of success with Pokemon Go, as well as the early experiences that Nintendo 3DS brought to bear with the AR cards and some of the games. There's a ton of training being done with the use of VR, whether it's in the law enforcement community, for surgeries and things of that nature. I think VR in the business context and for specific industries, is phenomenal.
