What makes organic food 'organic'?

The EU's organic certification ensures compliance with these standards. New regulations coming in 2022 will further harmonize rules and simplify procedures for small farms.

Is it really possible (and legal) to disqualify Evo Morales' party in Bolivia?

20 Aug 2020  |  es.euronews.com
Bolivia has been awaiting new elections for nearly a year, with the date now set for October 18, 2020. The potential disqualification of Evo Morales' party, Movimiento al Socialismo (MAS), has sparked controversy. MAS candidate Luis Arce mentioned an internal poll during a TV interview, which could lead to the party's legal disqualification according to Bolivian electoral law. Political parties Juntos and Creemos have filed complaints against MAS with the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE), which has referred the case to the Plurinational Constitutional Tribunal (TCP) for review. The situation is complicated by past actions during Morales' tenure when the TSE disqualified opposition candidates under the same law. Experts believe that the disqualification of MAS is unlikely and would be disproportionate, and that even if MAS were disqualified, it would not eliminate the party as a political force.

COVID-19: What happens after a vaccine is approved? The process, explained

05 Aug 2020  |  euronews
There are 165 candidate vaccines worldwide for COVID-19, with 26 in or nearing human trials. The EU has strategies to secure vaccines, including agreements with Sanofi for 300 million doses.

Regulatory flexibility is being offered to expedite vaccine development without compromising safety. Pricing is not yet determined, and it's unclear who will receive the vaccine first, but high-risk workers and vulnerable populations are likely candidates.

Hundreds of birds in 'collective suicide' at Ecuadorian high-altitude lakes

25 Sep 2018  |  www.euronews.com
Annually, hundreds of upland sandpipers die in the high-altitude lake area of Ozogoche, Ecuador, during September and October, an event not fully understood by scientists. While ornithologist Tatiana Santander has considered various theories, including sickness and sulfuric intoxication, she suggests weather and strong winds may cause the birds to fall into the lake, leading to thermal shock and death. However, the local indigenous community views the phenomenon as a supernatural gift to Mother Earth, with the birds' deaths believed to honor the spirits of the sacred lake and bring the rainy season. This belief is celebrated in a festival where people eat, drink, and dance by the lake, and some locals have incorporated the dead birds into their diet. Shaman Raúl Tenesaca leads a purification ritual, seeing the birds' sacrifice as beneficial for the people living in the area.
