Covid-19: Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine approved for use in UK

And COVID-19 news from UK.
The Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine has been approved for use in the UK, with the first doses due to be given on Monday amid rising coronavirus cases.

The UK has ordered 100 million doses - enough to vaccinate 50 million people.

This would cover the entire population when combined with the full order of the Pfizer-BioNTech jab, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said.

It comes as millions more people in England are expected to be the toughest tier four restrictions.

The first doses are due to be given on Monday, amid concern over rising coronavirus cases.

Pierre Cardin: French fashion giant dies aged 98
Legendary designer Pierre Cardin, whose futuristic and stylish designs helped revolutionise fashion in the 1950s and 60s, has died at the age of 98.

The French fashion giant, whose career spanned more than 70 years, helped usher in the post-war "golden age" of couture with his modern style.

He broke ground by bringing designer styles to the masses with some of the first ready-to-wear collections.

A business pioneer, he also licensed his name for a wide range of products. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-55476062

About 500 people have been evacuated from the village of Gjerdrum, which lies some 25km (15 miles) north-east of the capital, Oslo.

Coronavirus: Hundreds of British skiers flee Swiss Verbier quarantine

More than 200 British skiers fled a coronavirus quarantine in the popular Swiss resort of Verbier on Saturday night, reports say.

A spokesman in Valais canton said 420 British guests had booked into Verbier accommodation before Christmas and now only about a dozen were left.

Switzerland imposed a 10-day quarantine backdated to 14 December because of the new virus strain spreading in the UK.

The country also stopped flights from the UK and South Africa on 20 December.

Some Swiss hoteliers only discovered the guests had vanished when room service trays were left untouched outside doors, Swiss media reported. Others were called by British tourists demanding their money back once they had safely crossed into France, the BBC's Imogen Foulkes reports from Geneva.

Verbier is especially popular among the British, who normally make up about one-fifth of the resort's winter clientele.

More than 200 Britons flee Verbier, defying a Swiss order to remain in their hotels and chalets.

Covid: Flights shut down as EU discusses UK virus threat

EU officials are discussing a joint response to a new, more infectious Covid-19 variant in the UK, which has sparked travel bans by many countries.
Canada and India joined European states in blocking flights from the UK while Europe-bound train services via the Channel Tunnel have been halted.
The new variant is said to be up to 70% more transmissible but there is no evidence that it is more deadly.
There is also no proof to suggest that it reacts differently to vaccines.

Coronavirus: Swiss count cost of surge in deaths

Infections have surged to more than 5,000 a day and total Covid deaths are approaching 7,000, averaging between 80 and 100 a day. The previous peak, reached in April, was 63.

Only this week a former Swiss president, Flavio Cotti, died reportedly of complications caused by the virus. Swiss leaders meet on Friday to consider whether to move to some form of partial lockdown.
Quote from the article:
"The vast majority of people who have died of Covid in Switzerland are over 80. One Swiss doctor told me that "we have forgotten how to die", and argued that offering mechanical ventilation to a very elderly person was inhumane, and unlikely to save their life."

Swiss leaders decide on Friday whether to impose tougher measures, as deaths reach 100 a day.

Police said the business sourced and distributed clothing to African countries for sale. authorities said the migrants had been forced to work long days in poor conditions and were paid only two euros (£1.80; $2.40) per hour.

EU breaks deadlock over €1.8tn budget and Covid-recovery fund

Wow..actual progress has been made.
Collective sighs can be heard.
EU leaders have struck a deal over the bloc's €1.8tn (£1.64tn; $2.2tn) budget and Covid recovery fund, after reaching a compromise with Hungary and Poland.

The two nations had threatened a veto over a clause that tied funding with adherence to the rule of law.

This could have cost them billions of euros in EU funding as they are being investigated for undermining the independence of courts and media.

But they were assured that the clause would only apply to future spending.

A compromise was reached with Hungary and Poland who had threatened a veto over the rule-of-law clause.

Italy: Police arrest 19 suspected people smugglers

Illegal immigration is a huge factor in human trafficking. It is surprising how many people do not know what a big business it has become .
Trafficking in humans is the second largest criminal industry in the world. Victims of human trafficking are subjected to force, fraud or coercion for the purpose of sexual exploitation or forced labor.
The numbers are shocking in some European countries - and some US states stats make your hair stand up. They sound unbelievable

The smugglers allegedly transported migrants from Asia to Italy and then on to northern Europe.

Brexit: UK-EU trade talks continue as 'sticking points' remain

BREXIT - BREAK IT OR??? Environment Secretary George Eustice said "sticking points" on fishing and business rules remained.

UK chief negotiator Lord Frost is taking part in discussions with EU counterpart Michel Barnier in Brussels.

EU sources told the BBC an agreement on fishing was close but a No 10 source said there had been "no breakthrough".

The UK government source told the BBC on Sunday evening: "Nothing new has been achieved on this today."

EU sources say the two sides are nearing an agreement on access to UK waters by EU fishing fleets.

The Story of EuroCircle

She talked about for a few years when she was working at E&Y - International Tax Law Dep - starting a network for all EUROPEANS. Then her friend Ibra Morales was nominated to become the new President of Telemundo. This was around 1998. Ibra invited his friends to have a celebratory dinner at the new City Hall Restaurant in Tribeca NYC.

When the owner Henry Meer came by to say hello to the big group of friends, Ibra managed to get him to promise EuroCircle founder Kaisa a beautiful private room with its own bar for Jan 11 1999. NO RENT - provided she brings at least 100 people there. Jan 11 was MONDAY night. She was scared, nevertheless she accepted the challenge.

A few days later 185 p showed up at the City Hall in Tribeca to start EuroCircle...and story went on. Note that there was no social media, no websites, no email so it all was via word of mouth.

I have a job offer to work in London, and this would essentially necessitate a move from the US (where I lived most of my life). Has anyone performed such a change and would be able to share their experience with me? I left Romania when I was a kid - so I grew up mostly in the US. Thanks for any insight!
