A plane from France landed “one minute” in quarantine in Norway

“The plane of the Scandinavian company SAS landed seconds after France was officially part of Norway’s “red list”, a Norwegian minister confirmed.Records from the specialist flight site FlightRadar24 show that flight SK4700 landed one minute after midnight local time, which is nine minutes before the scheduled time. Oslo airport records show he landed at exactly midnight. Regardless, the new quarantine rules went into effect in the country from midnight (inclusive), meaning all passengers had to self-isolate for 10 days upon arrival, thanks to a difference of just a few seconds. According to Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet, passengers on the plane cheered when their pilot announced they had landed at midnight. But (…) “the transition to the red zone took place from midnight inclusive, so if [they landed] at exactly midnight or a minute later, they must quarantine themselves.” - fr24news.com - Aug.2020

How was opposition expressed? Under what circumstances? How can we judge evolution? progress? what goals are guiding the world today? What commitment does this require? What idea do we have of progress? What does progress consist of? What forms can progress take in the digital age? Does the digital age change the way we engage?... (to be completed)

Quelles oppositions y voyons-nous ?Quelles formes peut prendre le progrès à l'heure numérique ? Le numérique change-t-il la façon de s'engager ?... (à compléter)
