Eastern countries hold out for more cash on EU climate deal
  + stars: | 2020-12-04 | by ( Kate Abnett | ) + 0.00   time to read: +2 min
The latest draft of the climate deal, seen by Reuters, would commit the EU to cut emissions by “at least 55%” by 2030, from 1990 levels. The deal also includes a so-called “enabling framework”, sketching out a plan to deliver the goal, with assurances on EU funding and countries’ right to choose their own energy mix. EASTERN DISCOMFORTEU officials said several countries, including Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Malta and Bulgaria, were not ready to endorse the latest text. Those include doubling an EU fund, made up of revenues from carbon trading, to help poorer countries invest in clean power. Denmark, Spain and the Netherlands are among the states pushing for a climate deal next week.

If you want to survive in a world "designed to depress us," Marinova believes taking the time to find small moments of joy in everyday life is the key to true happiness. As a result, the plastic surgery industry has exploded in popularity over recent months. How do you get them to have plastic surgery? He couldn't care less about anti-aging moisturizer, plastic surgery, or smartphones. It's a life of minimalism, but it's also a life of deliberately finding small, daily moments of joy.

BERLIN (Reuters) - Berlin is racing to open six mass vaccination centres capable of handling up to 4,000 people per day by mid-December, the project coordinator told Reuters on Thursday, as the city waits for authorities to approve the first vaccines. Albrecht Broemme said plans envisage 3,000 to 4,000 people per day being ferried through each centre in the same way as shoppers are guided through IKEA stores in one direction. “The biggest challenge will be succeeding in getting the right people at the right time at the right vaccination centre,” Broemme said on the sidelines of a fire drill at the city’s makeshift COVID-19 hospital in a trade fair hall. Other German states have said vaccination centres will be ready from mid-December and mobile teams will inoculate the most vulnerable. Broemme expects each person to spend around one hour in the centre.

In the European Union, it is up to each country in the 27-member bloc to start distributing vaccines to their populations. Most countries have said the first vaccines will go to the elderly and vulnerable and frontline workers like doctors. Countries say they are buying vaccines via the European Commission’s joint procurement scheme, which has deals for six different vaccines and nearly 2 billion doses. It has signed a provisional agreement to buy AstraZeneca’s vaccine, which does not require storage in specialized ultra cold equipment like the Pfizer vaccine. Governments have paid from a few dollars per AstraZeneca shot to up to $50 for the two-dose Pfizer regimen.

SOFIA (Reuters) - Bulgaria said on Wednesday it would close schools, restaurants, shopping malls and gyms until Dec. 21 as it struggles to contain a surge in new coronavirus infections. “Only one thing has been proven to have an impact on COVID-19 - decreasing social contacts or quarantine. Like much of central and eastern Europe, Bulgaria weathered the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic relatively well in the spring, but cases have spiked across the region this autumn. Bulgaria registered 4,382 new infections on Wednesday, bringing the total number to 129,348. In total, 3,226 people in Bulgaria have died from COVID-19 this year.

Europe is home to 8 of the top 10 countries for talented workers

Switzerland has been named the best place in the world for attracting and nurturing skilled workers, even as the coronavirus pandemic weighs on many countries' ability to win over top talent. Here are the top 10 countries on the list of 63 markets, which was heavily led by Western Europe. Now in its seventh year, the IMD annual ranking seeks to provide a picture of leading economies' talent pools, and therefore their global competitiveness. "The performance of the top talent-competitive countries remains relatively strong," said Caballeros. That was due to "brain drain" — the emigration of educated workers away from their home country — and a reduced ability to attract foreign highly skilled workers and international managers, Caballeros said.

“And it wasn’t at all where I expected to go.”As her book opens, Cooper has graduated from Harvard but is back on campus. She sits in on a class taught by the professor rumored to have committed the crime. By now, she has uncovered the dead woman’s name — Jane Britton — and pored over photographs of her from a dig in Iran. It occurred early on Jan. 7, 1969, the day Britton was supposed to take her general exams in archaeology. She even spends a month on a dig in Bulgaria, in emulation of her dead subject.

Mikaela Shiffrin skied to a 65th career World Cup win and first in downhill since 2017 with victory in Bansko, Bulgaria Friday. The American star is now just two race wins behind Austrian great Marcel Hirscher , who retired last year, and fourth on the list of all-time World Cup winners. Shiffrin, who will be 25 on March 13, is traditionally a slalom and giant slalom specialist but her second career downhill victory has cemented her lead at the top of the standings as she chases a fourth straight World Cup overall season title. Already this season Shiffrin had won three slaloms and a giant slalom race, but victory in Bansko was her first of 2020. Hirscher holds the most overall titles with an unprecedented eight straight Crystal Globes.
