Deputy Prime Minister Jaroslaw Gowin had said on Thursday that Poland would be ready to drop its veto on the EU’s 1.8 trillion euro financial package if EU leaders endorse an explanatory declaration on the link between EU funds and the rule of law.

Slawomir Kaminski/Agencja Gazeta via REUTERSSpeaking to reporters after meeting several top EU Commission officials Gowin said Poland realised that a veto to the EU budget for 2021-2027 and the fund would hurt Poland and other EU countries financially. Such a compromise is possible ... through a binding declaration interpreting (the rule of law regulation),” he said, adding such a declaration would have to be adopted by EU leaders. “A possible veto would not only trigger the provisional budget, but also something that my interlocutors called Plan B ... which is some form of cooperation between the 25 other countries,” Gowin said.

Hong Kong (CNN) China this week revealed plans to drastically expand an experimental weather modification program to cover an area of over 5.5 million square kilometers (2.1 million square miles) -- more than 1.5 times the total size of India. That uncertainty had not stopped China investing heavily in the technology: between 2012 and 2017, the country spent over $1.34 billion on various weather modification programs. Last year, according to state news agency Xinhua , weather modification helped reduce 70% of hail damage in China's western region of Xinjiang, a key agricultural area. Though the primary focus of Beijing's weather modification appears to be domestic, experts have warned there is the potential for impact beyond the country's borders. "The scientific evidence and political justification for weather modification is not subject to debate or broad discussion (in China)," the authors wrote.

"Only 32% of Americans go to college, and cost is not what keeps the most exceptional kids of any income level from getting to college," Galloway writes. Around 20% of college students live with their parents, and over half don't live in college housing. A two-year community college degree in business management, marketing, or similar field is a sufficient prerequisite for many office jobs. A two-year community college degree in business management, marketing, or similar field is a sufficient prerequisite for many office jobs. College needs to be more affordable, but we don't need to subsidize the wealthiest households in America, who send 88% of their children to college.

"This program is an absolute game changer for New Mexico," Lujan Grisham said at the time. Students like Emily Jaramillo, 18, who was a high school senior when the free college plan was announced, suddenly felt like they were out of options. Juarez-Alonzo, who is involved in local climate activism, described the free college plan as a "hostage situation," in which his future was being funded by the very thing he thought would kill it. "I wasn't trying to bank on the fact that our governor had promised free college, because I didn't think the money was always going to be there," he said. Lujan Grisham's office said it was too busy handling the Covid-19 crisis to comment on whether she still plans to pursue the free college plan.

MANILA (Reuters) - Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has approved ending a ban on deploying the nation’s healthcare workers, his labour minister said on Saturday, clearing the way for thousands of nurses to take up jobs overseas. Slideshow ( 2 images )“The president already approved the lifting of the temporary suspension of deployment of nurses and other medical workers,” Labour Secretary Silvestre Bello told Reuters. To ensure the Philippines has enough medical professionals to continue to fight the pandemic at home, only 5,000 healthcare workers will be allowed to leave every year, Bello said. “We are starting only with a cap of 5,000 so we will not run out (of medical workers), but this may increase eventually,” Bello said. The government in April barred nurses, doctors and other medical workers from leaving, saying they were needed to fight the coronavirus crisis at home.
