  1. Denmark has become the latest country to prohibit wearing the burqa and niqab in public. But Denmark's ban may backfire - just like it has in many other European countries with similar bans. This is a pretty interesting article that's worth your time, I think. Check it out: Banning Muslim Veils Tends to Backfire—Why Do Countries Keep Doing It? So, why do European countries keep doing it?
  2. In an interview with CBS News and ahead of his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, US President Donald Trump said that he thinks "the European Union is a foe". Read the full story here: "I think the European Union is a foe," Trump says ahead of Putin meeting in Helsinki This certainly doesn't bode well for future US-EU relations. Maybe it's true what Germany's Chancellor, Angela Merkel, said last year, that Europe can no longer rely on America?
  3. 90 migrants feared dead after boat capsizes off Libya Most victims believed to be Pakistani, 3 people reported rescued. Read more here: http://www.cbc.ca/beta/news/world/migrants-dead-ship-sinks-libya-1.4516214
  4. AP News Article This would most definitely be a step in the right direction, in my opinion! I fully agree with the idea that the system simply creates more criminals. Once you're "in the system" it's almost impossible to get out, even over something as simple as marijuana charges. At least, that's how it is here in the states. Does Germany have a similar situation when it comes to low-level weed convicts having trouble finding work/housing?
  5. New data from the World Health Organization shows that nearly 85 percent of all Europeans were exposed to hazardous air pollution above recommended levels in 2014. The highest rate of air contamination and air pollution-related deaths can be found in Eastern European and Balkan countries, according to the new statistics. Least air pollution averages and air pollution-related deaths can be found in all of Scandinavia, Finland, Spain, Portugal and Ireland. In 2012, Sweden registered less than one death per 100,000 people due to air pollution and the country had Europe’s lowest average of 5.9 micrograms of pollutants per cubic metre. Learn more here: Which European countries are the most polluted? How well does your country and/or city fare when it comes to air pollution?
  6. Czech Republic re-elects far-right president Miloš Zeman Anti-immigrant and pro-Putin leader takes decisive victory over liberal opponent Jiří Drahoš. Read more here: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/jan/27/czech-republic-far-right-president-reelected
  7. On Wednesday this past week, wind produced 23% of Europe's electricity (and on a working day!). Germany 60%, Denmark 48%, Spain 37%, Austria 32%, and Netherlands 23%. Isn't that amazing? Don't let anyone tell you that renewable energy isn't a viable alternative to dirty fossil fuels. The source is here, if you want to check out how much electricity Europe generates from wind every day: https://windeurope.org/about-wind/daily-wind/
  8. Uh oh... Angela Merkel has just said in a speech that Germany or Europe can no longer rely on America under Donald Trump, or Britain following Brexit. Instead Merkel said that "we Europeans must take our destiny into our own hands" and "fight for our own future". The Independent reports: So, basically, France think Donald Trump is a dictator, and the Germans think he's unreliable, while the British think he can't be trusted with any kind of intel. But at least the Saudis think he's useful. Good job America!
