Berlin Wall

Berlin Wall | Day of the Newspaper | Scoop.it

Berlin wall,

 

While the wall has fallen east and west are still divided.

 

We just celebrated that it has been 25 years ago that the Berlin wall was destroyed.

The wall was the symbol of the division between East and West Europe. Several countries of the Eastern bloc have joined the West. But are those new countries and the existing European countries one Europe? Still there are many differences as in prosperity, health care, housing and employment. It is also a fact that work is done by the cheap forces from the new countries but often its work what we don’t want to do. But when it goes better in their own countries and they can earn more money there they will work there. In the news you hear also often posts about criminals from the Eastern bloc who commit thefts. This is also logical because in their own country to get almost nothing and here very much. If they earn more in their home country, perhaps they will stay there.

It will take a time but in the end it will probably be more one Europe.

Almost 3 billion people online!

At the end of 2014 there are almost 3 billion people online. That’s 7.9% more as at the end of 2013. This means that almost 60% of the World population is using the internet.

 

This is what the international telecommunications unit says (ITU)

At the end of 2013 2.71 billion people used the internet. Now at the end of 2014 it is 2.923 billon use the internet. And next year the border of 3 billion should be passed.

 

Brahim Sanou (director of the ITU) also says that there are still 4.3 billion people not online. 90% of these people come from third world countries. 6% of the people in third World countries have acces to broadband internet but in core countries this is 27,5%. And the growth is going down.

 

The acces to mobile internet is also growing and internet via mobile networks will be at the end of 2014 for almost 1/3 of the world be available.

 

The difference between core and third world countries will still stay the same, says Sanou. In core countries 84% of the people has access to mobile network and in third world countries it’s only 21%.

Cycle record broken by Frenchman

Cycle record broken by Frenchman | Day of the Newspaper | Scoop.it

MARSEILLE - 10th of November

E2a's insight:

A Frenchman has broken his own cycle record by driving 333 km/h on a rocket engine.

 

Francois Gissy drove on a rocket engine made by himself, on a circuit close to Marseille. The 32-year old man was (according to the French media) in five seconds on his new record time. 

 

The old record was on 263 km/h and after he had driven that, he competed with a Ferrari. He won easily. 

 

There are different time records on bicycles. The fastest record in the Netherlands is of Sebastiaan Bowie who biked over 200 meter with an extreme streamlined reclining bicycle from de TU Delft. He reached in 2013 a speed of 133,78 km an hour.

 

A second record ‘Bike behind an pacer’ is also in Dutch hands, it’s won by Fred Rompelberg in 1995. He biked after a car about a mile with a speed of 268.8 km an hour.

 

Both Dutchman biked with their own legs instead of Gissy who used an rocket engine.

EU citizens run on for additional levy

EU citizens run on for additional levy | Day of the Newspaper | Scoop.it

Britain has been told it must pay an extra €2.1bn (£1.7bn) into the European Union budget by the end of next month because the UK economy is doing better relative to other European economies. Eurostat arrived at the €2.1bn figure on the basis of new methods of calculating member states’ GNI since 1995.

The demand is certain to be used against David Cameron by the group who want the UK to quit the EU.

British and European commission officials confirmed that the Treasury had been told last week that budget contribution calculations had shown a huge difference between what Britain had been asked to pay and what it should be paying, because of the UK’s recovery.

The prime minister conferred with Mark Rutte as the Netherlands has also been ordered to pay more than €600m extra to the EU, while other countries such as Germany and France are likely to have excess contributions returned.

“The timing is far from ideal,” said Patrizio Fiorilli, spokesman for the EU budget commissioner. “But there are rules we have to follow.”

MP Tracey Crouch said: “You should not punish countries that are working hard to recover from the great recession. The EU should look at George Osborne’s long-term economic plan and learn some lessons from it.”

Cameron has a lot of value to a campaign to reduce fixed, arguing that it could not be guaranteed that the pot of Brussels would stay the same in a time of budget cuts across Europe.

Eurostat concluded that the UK economy has been doing much better than previously assumed since 1995, relative to other European countries, and that Britain needs to pay more money.

The demand comes as part of what is known in Brussels as an amending budget proposal, a routine event that occurs regularly. There are currently a further six amending budgets on the table in Brussels, some of  them may change the amount of money Britain has to pay.

While the €2.1bn bill is theoretically due by 1 December, the amending budget also has to be approved by the 28 governments of the EU and by the European parliament, which means the bill can still change.

Bird Flu

Bird Flu | Day of the Newspaper | Scoop.it

The European Commision is set up to find a temporary cure against the bird flu outbreak in the Netherlands.

 

They decided to ban selling pountry in that part of the EU.

The Dutch authorities already started destroying  15.000 chickens and banned transport through the whole country.

They are planning on destroying the birds by pumping CO2 gass into the barn.Because of this the chickens will get a heartattack and they will die.

They will die in different stages, so it will take several weeks.

 

When they get a sign that its safe to go in there again, they will remove the birds manually.ill die in different stages, so it will take several weeks.

Luckily the disease has never been detected in humans, but we can never be carefull enough.
