Sunny Italy. And while spring is not eternal in the city of Orvieto (it does snow some winters), here on the walkway of the outer defensive walls, one promenades along cobblestone streets festooned with flowers and plants, and it feels as if the perfect weather, and day, will never end.

EU ‘cannot accept’ Israel illegally halting water to Gaza: Borrell

Norway wants Facebook behavioural advertising banned across Europe.

The same day that Elon Musk fired the entire Twitter team concerned with fighting election disinformation, he also endorses a post where people are being encouraged to vote for the far-right German AFD party. The AFD thanked him for his endorsement and for disbanding the team that was fighting election disinformation.
"Humanitarian Imperialism Created the Libyan Nightmare"
> "NATO’s military intervention in Libya in 2011, which overthrew the regime of Muammar Gaddafi, resulted in a chaotic and murderous failed state. Libyans pay a horrific price for this catastrophe."
Yet another important article from the great Chris Hedges. Every US citizen should read this and other writings by Chris. I think it's important that the citizens of the country that has had the biggest economic and military power for almost a century, and exerted this in a mafia style, or like a playground bully (with millions of deaths to account for), get to know this.
The US is not the only country behind this savage, deadly interventions: all western powers (this article mentions only France, because it's speaking of Libya in particular, but the UK, Spain, Portugal, and all the NATO allies, actually) are more or less responsible for many of these deadly foreign interventions.
Note that none of the people in these Western powers that has taken the decisions that led to these many millions of direct and indirect deaths (and even more displaced) has had a single trial. Not only that: as Hedges says, they even dare to point at "enemy" countries their faults in human rights (like in China or Russia) (but only in enemy states, never in friendly ones, such as Saudi Arabia or Qatar).
Now one can imagine that the moment that we Westerners lose our mafia-style power over the world, as it is already happening, the outcome probably won't be beautiful. I think Europe is going to go down first, and then the ghosts of centuries of brutal colonialism in Africa, America and Asia will come for us.
Collective traumas are not easily healed, like individual ones. I see what the Israel state does to Palestinians as a good example.
So much unnecessary pain and suffering in the world is mind-blowing.

Un arrêt de la Cour de justice européenne, rendu le 21 septembre, restreint drastiquement la possibilité pour la France de refouler les migrants qui franchissent ses frontières, en se fondant sur la directive européenne dite « retour » votée en 2008 et non respectée par la France depuis huit ans.
Europe’s rail network has dramatically declined over the past three decades, new research warns, while investment in roads has soared.
The bulk of the railway closures took place in Germany, Poland and France.
Ten countries have bucked the trend, however, and report a net increase of their railway networks’ lengths.
European governments have “systematically” shrunk their railways and starved them of funding while pouring money into expanding their road network, a report has found.
The length of motorways in Europe grew 60% between 1995 and 2020 while railways shrank 6.5%, according to research from German thinktanks Wuppertal Institute and T3 Transportation. For every €1 governments spent building railways, they spent €1.6 building roads.

The future of Europe's wolf population is under scrutiny by the European Commission after a surge in wolf attacks on livestock across numerous countries.
A resolution adopted by the European Parliament late last year stated there were 680 farm animals killed by wolves in Austria in 2021, but in France in 2020 there were 12,000 livestock killed and in Germany nearly 4,000.
They promised us flying cars, and instead we got levitating trains!!
Polish startup #Nevomo has tested a levitating device... *on existing rails*
#MagRail levitates on existing infrastructure (which would need adaptations)
Watch the 2-ton, 6-metre test vehicle lift in the video:
They say "commercial by 2024", which I don't believe, but still, this is cool European tech!
"A Swiss #WeatherBalloon had to climb to an unprecedented 5,300 metres (17,400ft) before the temperature fell to 0C (32F), as a late summer #heatwave and wildfires continue to pummel swaths of continental #Europe.
The 0C line averaged 2,570 metres above sea level from 1991 and 2020, fluctuating between 1,000 and 2,000 metres in winter, and 3,000 and 4,000 metres in summer."
