Luxembourg's PM had met Johnson to discuss Brexit but said the British leader had offered nothing to convince him and other EU leaders. #Europe #Luxembourg
 
Luxembourg’s prime minister, Xavier Bettel, spoke to the press alone after Boris Johnson did not appear at a planned press conference after Brexit talks between the two leaders. A group of protesters had threatened to disrupt Johnson’s remarks.

Bettel said Johnson’s talk of progress in Brexit discussions was unfounded, emphasising that the UK, not the EU, was to blame for the crisis

Nach Tornado in Luxemburg: Bis zu 100 Häuser unbewohnbar


Nach einem Tornado in Luxemburg haben am Samstag die Aufräumarbeiten begonnen. Es gibt aber Absperrungen in den betroffenen Gebieten: Da weiterhin mit starkem Wind gerechnet wird, besteht das Risiko, dass Teile durch die Luft gewirbelt werden können. Der Tornado hat am Freitagabend vor allem die Ortschaften Petingen und Kaerjeng hart getroffen. Nach einer Bilanz wurden dort insgesamt rund 180 Gebäude beschädigt oder abgedeckt. Die Zahl der Verletzten stieg am Samstag auf 19.

Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany and the Netherlands surpassed previous maximum highs

Only weeks since Europe last endured record-breaking heat, another plume of intense hot air pushed up from north Africa breaking yet more records. High pressure centred over north-east Europe and low pressure in the Atlantic allowed exceptionally hot conditions to develop across western Europe. On Thursday 25 July, Germany recorded its highest ever temperature of 42.6C in Lingen, exceeding the previous record by an astonishing 2.3C. A number of other countries also set national temperature records, with 41.8C recorded in Belgium and 40.8C in Luxembourg. A 75-year-old record was also smashed in the Netherlands, with 40.7C recorded at Gilze-Rijen in the south of the country.

Meanwhile, Arctic wildfires have been raging across large parts of Siberia, northern Scandinavia and Greenland, with significant air quality problems reported in parts of Russia. Although wildfires are common in the summer months, the unusually hot and dry conditions have exacerbated the fires over recent weeks.

Mining, farming, hydropower and chemical sectors aim to weaken key directives

Industry lobbies are mounting a push to roll back EU clean water regulations, even though less than half of the continent’s rivers, wetlands and lakes are in a healthy state.

The lobby offensive is aimed at weakening the bloc’s floods and water framework directives, which require all states to ensure their waterways are in “good ecological condition” by 2027. Conservation groups say the proposed changes could sound a death knell for several endangered aquatic species.

Leaked Documents Expose Global Companies’ Secret Tax Deals in Luxembourg

thank you for bringing the investigative journalism to the masses / public. headlines please! 🙂


a dysfunctional tax system – will not only increase state governmental state deficit – but also taxes the poor but not the rich and thus increase inequality and destabilize democracy.

because the poor ask the right question: +19% tax on goods +40% tax on income – why us?

and not the super rich and multi national companies?

Luxembourg : les voleurs du fisc nous ruinent

Dénonciation des accords (ou rescrits) fiscaux faits par le Luxembourg et révélés par les LuxLeaks (Antoine Deltour et Raphael Alet) qui ont pour conséquences de rendre déficitaire le budget des états, mais aussi d'amener ces états à baisser des impôts progressifs comme l'impôt sur les sociétés et à augmenter des impôts non progressifs comme la TVA en compensation

have to reshare some delight... for @Anne Har and all lovers of the sea, of the blue...


Théo was only 6 years younger than Rothko (maybe they met?). Théo, who knew Stravinski, Chagall etc, told us that everybody was afraid of Picasso then in Paris, all his painter friends disappeared when they saw him coming... Théo had his fingertips frozen painting outside in wintertime for to help soldiers in prison... was such a character... stood there angrily shouting at 7am in his Britanny butcher's smock, "Where are you, we have to work!" Peter and I had worked the whole night through, but Théo, then 77 years of age, wanted to get the work done, implanting blue full-glass windows into that hall mentioned below...

hm... leave ya wid some roses in front of the Blue Hall in Stone Mill... cya...

btw, nearly forgot, the blue thick glass windows are the artwork of Théo Kerg; then in 1987 together with our mason Georg (died of terrible liver cancer late nineties) I helped Théo and Peter to put them 8 concrete plates into the 2,4x0,6m / 94.49x23.62in. holes of the old windows... the light inside the Blue Hall (a room dedicated just for room) the light varies throughout the day... maybe me gonna give ya some pics from inside another time....
