The EU wants above all to "Reconstruction Fund" get free and get going with fund money without both states if necessary

In the EU Commission, some people are obviously bursting at the seams in view of the blockade attitude of Hungary and Poland. Both countries, with their announced veto of the 2021-2021 EU budget, are also blocking the associated "Reconstruction Fund". Because they are against linking the disbursement of funds to compliance with the rule of law, although they have largely been able to water that down anyway.

Digitization makes filmmaking cheaper for amateurs, the Internet gives them an audience, and even Oscar nominations come out of it

"405" is more of a manifesto than a film: almost three million people have seen it, but neither in the cinema nor on television. You can see the emergency landing of a jumbo jet on the Los Angeles Highway 405. A single motorist has overheard the warnings on the radio and is happy about the empty road – until he looks in the rearview mirror. An action scene a la "Speed" begins. The production of the three-minute spectacle cost nothing, but weekends and nights of the two creators, a lot of computer time and 300 dollars. Of course, the film can be seen for free – on the internet.

A negation of all the principles of filmmaking: no crew, hardly any money, no production company and no distributor. Jeremy Hunt and Bruce Branit did all this themselves. Although they emphasize that their principle can only be applied to a limited extent to longer and non-computer-animated productions, it is generally true today: "Technology makes the professionalism of films a matter of time and talent rather than budget."

The Missile Defense Agency speaks of a revolution

The Pentagon has been developing laser weapons for years. Now the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) reports success with a chemical laser weapon installed on a Boeing 747 aircraft. The Airborne Laser Testbed (ALTB) has succeeded in destroying a short-range ballistic missile shortly after launch. Such tests with the weapon system, which has been in development since the 1990s, were originally planned for 2003 (laser weapon against long-range missiles). The idea itself goes back to the Strategic Defense Initiative launched by Ronald Reagan in the 1980s.

How strongly does the U.S. support Mursi and the Muslim Brotherhood??

One might wonder how the U.S. government is reacting to the events in Egypt. David Ignatius describes as strangely restrained the comments from Washington on Mursi’s concentration of power and the demonstrations, which are about values that Obama has always upheld.

Officially, the USA and the Muslim Brotherhood keep their distance. On the occasion of the wave of anger in front of U.S. embassies in early September, U.S. President Obama declared that U.S.-Agyptian relations in "ongoing work" are: "I would not consider them as allies, but also not as an enemy. They are a new government that is seeking its own way." With "" apparently meant the Muslim Brotherhood.

Californian law against outsourcing abroad

New protectionism for the preservation of prosperity in times of globalization

In California, public presentation should only be awarded more companies that are committed to accessing staff within the United States. A corresponding template has approved the Californian Senate, the lower house must only agree with some of the Senate’s requested changes. Then it is at Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, to sign or insert a Veto.

Outsourcing has not been spaded since the end of the subsistence twist no more novel phanomena. The so-called offshoring, in which certain work is outsourced in Lander’s Lower Lower Level, was everyday in the industrial age – as long as simple, poorly paid activities were affected. Now, wherever more and more tasks are done with higher qualifications such as specialized call center services or software programming in emerging markers, new resistance stimulates. Certain society layers are for the first time threatened by offshoring and call for prohibitions.

“You see, we should talk more with each other”

The conversation between Sahra Wagenknecht and Frauke Petry: misunderstandings outweigh

In the Weimar Republic, the Communists and the Nazis were not only enemies. Again and again there were physical confrontations. But there was a practice that is hardly imaginable today. Communists and Nazis argued against each other in meetings, each side had its powerful members and sympathizers with them, and after the battle of the arguments, there was often a battle in the hall.
