Danish footballer Christian Eriksen’s collapse on the pitch was not a result of a COVID-19 vaccine, despite false speculation on social media. Inter Milan’s director told reporters that the club midfielder has not been vaccinated. This prompted widespread speculation on social media that the incident was a potential adverse reaction to a COVID-19 vaccine. Inter Milan’s director Giuseppe Marotta dismissed the suggestion, telling Rai Sport: “He didn’t have COVID and wasn’t vaccinated either” (here). Inter Milan’s director says Christian Eriksen has not received a COVID-19 vaccine, and this is therefore not the reason for his collapse during Denmark’s Euro 2020 opener.

During exercises in Europe this spring, US forces worked on new ways to get equipment and supplies troops in the field. Those new approaches are part of a broader effort to improve NATO's ability to reinforce and resupply units across Europe.

"Something terrible like that happens and UEFA gives the players an option to go out and play the game or come back at 1200 on Sunday. His sentiments were echoed by Laudrup, widely considered to be one of the greatest players ever to play for Denmark. "They were given a choice that is not a choice -- play tonight, or play tomorrow at 12. I think that, I'm sorry, but that is not a choice," Laudrup said.

Britain’s economic recovery continues as lockdowns end. The British economy grew 2.3 percent in April from the month before, the third consecutive month of growth. At the end of April, the British economy was 3.7 percent smaller than it was before the pandemic. The economic impact of a delay “would be minor,” said analysts at Berenberg bank. And their pay jumped 14.1 percent last year compared with 2019, while median workers got only a 1.9 percent raise.

Denmark's Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen arrives for a face-to-face EU summit in Brussels, May 24, 2021. Greenland and the Faroes Islands are sovereign territories under the Kingdom of Denmark, but Copenhagen handles most foreign and security matters. The Arctic Council, a high-level forum of eight Arctic states, including the United States and Russia, was established in 1996 to promote cooperation between the members on Arctic issues that are not related to security. Under the new agreement, Greenland would be first to speak at future council meetings, followed by the Faroe Islands and ending with Denmark, while Greenland would also be the main signatory to any declarations. "We will get a greater and more central role, which has long been the wish in Greenland," said Greenland Prime Minister Mute Bourup Egede, who took the helm of the nation's new government in April.

One Oil Company’s Rocky Path to Renewable Energy

For years, Danish Oil and Natural Gas Co. did what many other big oil companies do: pumped hydrocarbons out of the North Sea. Today, it’s the world’s largest developer of offshore wind energy, and exceeds the market value of oil giants Occidental Petroleum Corp. and Eni SpA. It took government intervention, years of subsidies and a wide-open competitive landscape for Ørsted to succeed. Shareholders and board members repeatedly questioned the strategy shift, and the costs ballooned the company’s debt, nearly derailing it. And returns are lower than most big oil developments.

U.N. refugee agency scorns Denmark's law on asylum claims
  + stars: | 2021-06-04 | by ( ) www.reuters.com sentiment -0.98   time to read: +1 min
The U.N. refugee agency has voiced strong opposition to a law passed by Denmark's parliament that would allow processing of claims lodged by asylum seekers outside Europe, calling it an "abdication" of its responsibility under international law. Denmark on Thursday passed a law enabling it to process asylum seekers outside Europe, drawing anger from human rights advocates and the European Commission. "UNHCR strongly opposes efforts that seek to externalise or outsource asylum and international protection obligations to other countries," he said. The new law will allow Denmark to move refugees arriving on Danish soil to asylum centres in a partner country to have their cases reviewed, and to possibly obtain protection in that country. Denmark has yet to reach an agreement with a partner country, but it has said it is negotiating with several candidate countries.
