Taiwan's Ministry of Defense is monitoring the island's surroundings in response to what it calls 'irrational activities' by the Chinese military. Despite not wanting to escalate the situation, Taiwan affirms its stance on the island's security and sovereignty. Professor Alessio Patalano from King's College London's War Studies Department suggests that China's military exercises aim to instill fear of inevitable reunification through hard power. He warns that prolonged exercises could significantly disrupt navigation and Taiwan's economy, especially since missiles are landing near major Taiwanese ports.

Paris uses the River Seine to cool its most emblematic places

28 Jul 2022  |  es.euronews.com
Paris maintains its iconic landmarks like the Louvre and Quai Branly Museum cool during summer using Europe's largest urban cooling system, managed by Fraicheur de Paris. The system, spanning 89 kilometers of underground pipes, utilizes cold water from the River Seine. It's noted for its sustainability, potentially reducing urban heat island effect and city temperatures by one degree. The Louvre has been benefiting from this network since the 90s, enjoying ecological and economic advantages. A plan to triple the network's size by 2042 aims to extend its reach to hospitals, schools, and metro stations to combat the effects of global warming on Parisians.

Prostitution in the EU: from abolition to social security contributions

21 Jul 2022  |  euronews
The debate over Spain's proposed law to abolish prostitution has reignited discussions on the best model to protect sex workers, predominantly women. Spain looks to the 'Nordic model,' which penalizes clients to reduce demand. Germany, where sex work is legal, will review its laws by July 2025. The EU faces a challenge with human trafficking and forced prostitution, with the European Commission recognizing it as gender-based violence. The European Parliament's 2014 resolution views prostitution as contrary to human dignity and gender equality. Models across the EU vary, with Sweden, France, and Ireland following the Nordic model, providing social assistance to sex workers. Germany and the Netherlands represent the regulatory model, with Germany requiring sex workers to register and the Netherlands lifting brothel bans in 2000. The effectiveness of these models is debated, with some advocating for the Nordic model and others criticizing it for failing to protect sex workers.
