Wenn dieser Artikel stimmt, heisst das: der Schöffenrat versteht NICHTS von moderner Stadtplanung. Er siedelt Autos (als Statussymbole?) höher in der Hierarchie an, als sanfte Mobilität. Der Rat ist bereit zu eskalieren, bis die politisch Auseinandersetzung buchstäblich 1/n
... auf der Strasse ausgetragen wird.
Es heisst auch, dass der Zusammenhang zwischen urbanistischer Gestaltung, den "10-Minute-Neighbourhoods" und (ja auch) der drängenden und dringenden Dekarbonisierung auf dem Altar von Werten geopfert werden sollen, die seit den 1990ger 2/n

Thanks to @LordsEUCom for inviting me to present oral evidence today alongside @Suewilson91 @BremainInSpain and Jane Golding @BritishInEurope - good opportunity to reflect on #citizensrights and #britsinEU drawing on the research for @BrExpatsEU. A few takeaways from me to follow
First up why the statistics about how many #britsinEU are limited and why this matters in context of 30 June deadline for applications for new residence status in #france #thenetherlands #latvia #luxembourg #malta - see my #thread from earlier⬇️⬇️⬇️
We talked a lot about hidden and vulnerable #britsinEU - homeless, children in care, disabled and elderly populations - who might fall between the cracks of the provisions and how more support needs to be put in place 2/

Doing my prep for @LordsEUCom I have been revisiting the question of how many #BritsinEU there are and why this matters for #citizensrights and #Withdrawalagreement. Just a recap, there are significant limitations to statistics about this population 1/…
These are the baseline for considering the progress of different EU member states in making sure that #britsinEU are registered for their new residence rights used in the joint UK-EC reports from the Specialised Committee on citizens' rights 2/… Image
This is particularly important when it comes to countries operating a #constitutivesystem including #france which hosts the second largest population of #britsinEU. The official statistics about #britsinfrance are likely a considerable underestimate 3/… Image

NEW -- Donors at #SyriaConf2021 have pledged a total of $6.4bn.

That's an enormous $3.6bn short of what the @UN needs to meet the increasing humanitarian needs in #Syria.
@UN A few more pledges for #Syria:

#EU: $657m
#Saudi: $560m
#Sweden: $97m
#Italy: $52m
#UAE: $30m

And a note on the $6.4bn total -- that's multi-year pledges. For 2021 alone, the figure is $4.2bn, less than half of what's needed.

Ein kleiner Thread zu AstraZeneca und den Thrombosen

Die Lungenembolie ist die dritthäufigste kardiovaskuläre Erkrankung mit einer Inzidenz von 100-200 Fällen pro 100.000 Einwohnern pro Jahr.
Bei den bisher 3 Millionen mit dem AstraZeneca-Impfstoff geimpften Personen sollte es also schon rein rechnerisch zwischen 3.000 und 6.000 Fälle in einem Jahr geben, das wären zwischen 57 und 114 pro Woche.
Die bisher bekannten 22 Fälle sind also statistisch gesehen eigentlich irrelevant, einen Hinweis auf einen Zusammenhang mit der Impfung gibt es ebenfalls nicht (auch wenn ein paar Schaumschläger in den sozialen Netzwerken daraus jetzt wieder ein riesiges Problem machen).

#Luxembourg #EU #Coronavirus #VACCINE

In the run-up to the EU summit, Luxembourg's foreign minister, Jean Asselborn, spoke out against a uniform vaccination certificate for travelers at the moment. "If everyone has access to the vaccination,
then I think you can really think about a vaccination pass," said Asselborn on Deutschlandfunk. He hopes that in three months there will be enough vaccine for everyone. Then one could talk about a uniform vaccination certificate.
Asselborn also spoke out against blanket border closings to contain the corona virus and its mutants. "That was wrong in 2020 and that is still wrong in 2021." For him, it is not about tourism, but about cross-border commuters and small border traffic.

Meanwhile in #France,
"the peak of this second wave is over"

(according to the President in his Adress to the Nation):
Wait... "the peak is over" doesn´t mean "it´s back to normal"!

Confinement will only fall on December 15,
if there´s less than 5.000 new cases a day.
(today it´s ~9.000).

France is disappointed.🙁

Although they certainly can make it happen.
Meanwhile in #Switzerland:
(excess mortality of the second wave is significant)

Good news: fastest decrease in infections happens in the worst hit areas now.

#Luxembourg #Coronavirus

The Luxembourg government is preparing a new lockdown in the Grand Duchy in the fight against the corona pandemic. "If the numbers don't get better, then next Monday we have to ask the House of Representatives to adopt new rules,"
said Prime Minister Xavier Bettel. The government has therefore forwarded a package of measures to parliament. Whether this will be implemented will not be decided until next Monday. The new corona wave hit the second smallest country in the EU with a good 600,000 inhabitants.
Since the end of October, there has been a night curfew from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. in Luxembourg and an increased mask requirement - always where more than four people meet. 9286 people are currently considered to be actively infected with the coronavirus in Luxembourg.

#Germany #BadenWuerttemberg #RheinlandPfalz #Saarland #France #Belgium #Luxembourg #Coronavirus #RESTRICIONS #INFO🚨

The Prime Ministers of Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland have spoken out against restrictions on border traffic
despite the renewed classification of the French border region as a corona risk area.

At none of the external borders with France, Luxembourg and Belgium could daily life, work and study be paralyzed by a complete lockdown, announced the Prime Minister on Friday.
According to a statement by the Baden-Württemberg State Ministry, the three federal states have decided that the so-called 24-hour rule should apply along the respective borders with neighboring countries.

This morning EU ministers formally adopted an EU-wide colour coding scheme for #COVID19 travel restrictions.

But this EU map has been out there for 2 weeks, and and member states still aren’t using it or coordinating.
Europe’s airlines say this agreement will do little to improve coordination.

They wanted the EU to create windows of certainty for travellers, replace quarantines with testing, allow travel between red zones, and forbid entry bans between EU countries.…
German Europe minister Michael Roth, asked after today's ministerial why the EU didn't go further to give more certainty to passengers, notes that this is only an EU recommendation because "member states have the powers in this area".

"Notwithstanding that, we're doing our best" Image
