Railway workers in Austria would hold a one-day strike on Monday after talks in pay negotiations failed. #Austria #Vienna #Economy #Inflation #Strike Image
Austrian media reported on Sunday that, the fifth round of talks on pay for over 50,000 employees of about 65 railway operators, including the main national operator OeBB, had failed.
Hence, there will be no regional, long-distance or night trains on Monday. Therefore, only buses and other public transport run by municipal authorities will run on Monday.

My pandemic excess mortality estimate update, age standardised using 5, 7 and 8 year linear trend baselines.

#NewZealand and #Denmark the clear winners so far. #Sweden clearly establishing as next best....at least in Europe anyway.

Data from @HMDatabase and @EU_Eurostat. ImageImageImage
#Sweden's infamous ~3% of deaths with unknown date sourced from @EU_Eurostat for all charts.

Adding those in more detail than before has the slightly paradoxical effect of reducing their excess by 20-25% as it makes their downward trend less steep.

The International Atomic Energy Agency's (@iaeaorg) Board of Governors adopted a resolution on nuclear safety and safeguards in Ukraine, calling on Russia to drop "unfounded claims" about the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. #IAEA #Austria #War

U.S. Statement as Delivered by Ambassador Laura S.H. Holgate said Since Russia launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine over eight months ago, this Board has considered the issue and adopted resolutions in response.

1/18.📜NEW BLOG: We have seen quite a few pledges that have been framed as “finance for #LossAndDamage”. But are they really? This blog provides an overview of all the pledges thus far at #COP27 in chronological order.

🔗Read it here: lossanddamagecollaboration.org/pages/festival… Image
2/18. On the 20th of September, #Denmark🇩🇰 pledged €13m for #LossAndDamage, a package which includes finance for the #GlobalShield Against Climate Risk, support for CSOs to do projects on the ground, and some other money that is yet to be allocated for a specific use.
3/18. Crucially, all of this money is new and on top of #Denmark’s 🇩🇰 0.7% commitment to ODA, therefore not a diversion of cash from other vital #ClimateFinance projects.

Austria will provide 50 million euros (dollars) to developing countries experiencing inevitable damage and losses caused by climate change, according to the climate ministry. #Austria #environment
Compensation linked to extreme weather and global warming has leapt up the political agenda at the U.N. climate conference taking place in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.
Countries have agreed to hold their first official talks on loss and damage, shorthand for payments affluent polluters will pay to poorer states suffering inescapable harm from increased floods, drought, and sea level rise, under pressure from developing nations.

I did a comparison of tax systems in Europe/USA for in near venture/startup community of @aabulkhairov (uklad.vc).

Useful when you're doing a global #startups
A few highlights in the thread!

First, the salaries themselves vary greatly between continents 🚀 Image
For the U.S. I used #California median salaries (source @talentdotcom), and for Europe I used Portuguese salaries (median too from google first). In Europe, salaries are the same for ease of comparison taxes.

#salary #startups
— Residency is implied everywhere
— Also Single for US (different income tax for married)
— Typical staffing for #salary dispersion Image

1. News that #Austria could be considering F-35s as a replacement fo its Eurofighters is both interesting/concerning in the wider security context of the country, one the Financial Times called a "veritable aircraft carrier" of covert #Russian activity
ft.com/content/bd74a5…
2. For some time now many Western nations did not share information with Austria because of how many leaks/double agents were reported to be inside its intelligence agencies.
3. Article states that a Vienna-based European diplomat even said "its BVT agency is regarded as being so compromised that for a time it was cut out of much #European intelligence sharing activity."

#Duration works both ways!
#Austria's '100-year' bond, maturing in 2120, with a duration of 46 years, is down a whopping 72% since late 2020 when global yields bottomed.
short thread 1/9
This also answers the many questions about why the value of (UK) #liability-driven investment funds, used by pension funds to match the #duration of their #liabilities, has plummeted. 2/9
Theoretically, since pension fund #liabilities and #assets both drop when #yields rise - it is not called liability matching for nothing - there shouldn't be a problem, right? 3/9

BREAKING: #BNNEurope Reports.

Austrians have started voting in a presidential election expected to return incumbent Alexander Van der Bellen @vanderbellen, after a campaign in which he has cast himself as the stable option in uncertain times. #Austria #Voting #Politics
Campaigning on a slogan of “clarity”, @vanderbellen is widely tipped to clinch a second mandate, with his six other, all male, challengers lagging far behind.
The biggest competitor on Sunday will be the sofa,” the 78-year-old economics professor said on Friday at his last campaign rally, appealing to people to vote. Polls put the pro-European liberal as securing more than 50 percent of the vote, thus avoiding a run-off.

Seguimos el ciclo temático #LaFiebreDelOro, sobre los colores del #oro y dorados en el arte, para el #TwitterCultural.

¿Qué lleva atado a la cintura en este retrato pintado por #Velázquez, la infanta María Teresa, hija de Felipe IV y su 1ª esposa, Isabel de Borbón?

Te cuento⬇️ Image
Este retrato se envió a la corte de Viena, #Austria, y se conserva en el @KHM_Wien Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien. Es uno de los cuadros enviados a las cortes de #Viena, #París y #Bruselas en 1653 cuando el rey buscaba pareja para su hija María Teresa, de 14 años.

Sigue⬇️ Image
#Velázquez, como pintor de la corte, pintó varios retratos que se enviaron por las cortes más importantes, a través de embajadores y enviados especiales.

Finalmente, en 1660, se casó con su primo, el rey de #Francia Luis XIV, boda en la que el pintor también participó.

otomobil öncüsü Henry Ford bir keresinde şöyle demişti: "İnsanlar para sistemini anlasaydı,
yarın sabahtan önce bir devrim yapardık." ECB şu anda dijital merkez bankası parasının uygulanması ve tanıtılması üzerinde çalışıyor. Nakitten kurtulmak için her zaman yeni bahaneler vardır.
Ancak bazı finansörler, dijital para biriminin ortaya çıkması ve nakit paranın kaldırılmasıyla özgürlük ve mahremiyetin ortadan kalkacağı konusunda uyarıyor. Bu programda, Avusturya'nın nakit güvenliği konusundaki referandumunu imzalamanın neden gerekli olduğunu öğreneceksiniz.

Europe is in danger of rolling electricity shortages from what I call a crisis of confidence.

I will explain why, back it with data & kindly ask YOU to share it as the fix lies in voting for balanced policies. We must adapt, urgently!

For those of you short of time, attached a brief summary of the issue at hand.

I was asked to compare the 1970ies energy crisis with today's for a Turkish newspaper. My answer below.

For those of you with time, please read on.

The European electricity grid is a modern miracle. It is the largest synchronous electrical grid (by connected power) in the world. It interconnects 520 million end-customers in 32 countries, including non-European Union members such as Morocco or Turkey.
