The Future of Aviation: Can Hydrogen Fuel Propel Us to a Cleaner Sky?

05 Apr 2023  |  Overleaf
The article discusses the environmental impact of aviation and explores hydrogen as a potential solution to reduce the industry's carbon footprint. It highlights the significant emissions produced by flights, comparing them to other activities such as heating a home for a year. Companies like Universal Hydrogen and ZeroAvia have tested hydrogen-propelled aircraft, while Airbus is deciding on hydrogen technologies by 2025. The article explains the challenges of producing 'green hydrogen' and the current reliance on fossil fuels for hydrogen production. It also covers the technical and infrastructural challenges of using hydrogen in aviation, such as storage and energy density. ZeroAvia is working on retrofitting planes with fuel cells for better environmental benefits and aims for certification by 2025. The OVERLEAF project is developing a liquid hydrogen storage tank to address volumetric storage issues. The article concludes with the potential benefits of hydrogen-electric aircraft, including lower operating costs, increased connectivity, and reduced environmental impacts.

North East of Syria is stable enough to welcome people fleeing from war-devastated areas in the rest of the country and from Iraq. In Qamishli, some refugee children live in houses, not tents and go to real purpose-built schools. In this neighbourhood of Qamishli lives a mix of people: Kurdish, Arabs, Assyrians and Armenians, all side by side. The area was multi-ethnic before the war, but since the conflict the communities are more mingled. While some have gone to Turkey, others have arrived, from cities like Damascus or Aleppo. So multilingualism is essential for everyone to get along. Since pre-schoo children have been learning to speak and write at least three languages. But there is another issue: children are often traumatised, and the different communities must learn to live together in peace. This is why schools created by NGOs like Rojava Free Women's Foundation psychological aid to children and parents alike.

Femicide is essential to genocide.

13 Mar 2017  |  euronews
The article discusses the International Yazidi Women’s Conference held in Bielefeld, Germany, which focused on the connection between femicide and genocide, particularly in the context of the Yazidi community targeted by ISIL. Panelists, including Dr. Hanush Horanissyan and psychologist Vania Martins, emphasized the use of sexual violence as a weapon in genocides and the targeting of women to dismantle societies. Testimonies from Yazidi survivors, including a 16-year-old girl, highlighted the brutalities faced by women and girls. Daye Bihar, via videoconference, and Feleknas Uca, a former MEP and current HDP member, spoke about the need for autonomous status for Shingal to prevent future massacres and addressed the ongoing vulnerabilities of the region. The conference also addressed the psychological trauma suffered by the victims and the importance of raising awareness and solidarity within the women's movement.

For the presidency of the European Parliament, the games are far from over

12 Jan 2017  |  it.euronews.com
The European Parliament's presidential election is unpredictable, with no pre-established alliances. Antonio Tajani and Gianni Pittella are the main contenders, but other parties, including the liberals with Guy Verhofstadt, could influence the outcome. The election, involving seven candidates, will take place on Tuesday in Strasbourg. An agreement among the three major parliamentary groups suggests a possible alternation in leadership, favoring Tajani.
