E-PRIVACY Regulation: EU Council Peak wants to allow broader data access

Racingly fast, Portugal, which was chaired at the beginning of the year from Germany, has chaired the EU Council of Ministers, a new draft for the four years of severely controversial e-privacy regulation sent to the other Member States. The goal should be, "to simplify the text" and continue to adapt to the Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO).

What is first convincing, turns out to look for a gift to the data processing economy. Originally intention of the EU Commission was to make the latte high with the regulation in data protection in the sensitive field of electronic communication with its numerous applications of Messenger services and the lathe to control language assistants. If the additional rules are now largely aligned with the DSGVO, they actually confer.

The most important requirement for this is that the processing "compatible" is intention to be released.

The domino recession?

The signs are pointing to recession not only in the U.S., the reports on the state of the global economy are anything but optimistic

The Global Risk Report 2008, which was compiled with the help of leading financial companies, concludes that a recession is imminent in the USA, the largest single economy. The risks were rated on a five-point scale based on a survey of about 100 leading businessmen, politicians and academics. According to the survey, the greatest risks were posed by the crisis in the financial system, further increases in food prices, the sensitivity of global supply routes and increasingly expensive energy carriers. These four risk complexes serve as the basis for this year’s meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Political and economic uncertainty is at its highest level in a decade, which is why 2008 has become a year of crisis worldwide. It is considered likely that prices for real estate in the U.S. will continue to fall. This is also true for Great Britain and other European countries where speculative bubbles have developed in the real estate market. There is a risk of a general decline in consumption and a recession, the report says. The likelihood of a drop in GDP growth in China was forecast at 3.5 points, which could cost the global economy 0.25 percentage points and up to a trillion dollars.

Europe and japan measure greenhouse gases via satellite

Europe and Japan measure greenhouse gases via satellite the weather satellite organization EUMETSAT and the Japanese space workers Jaxa cooperate in the production of greenhouse gases in the Earth’s atmosphere. "Japan is a pioneer," said the Eumetsat General Director Alain Raier on Tuesday (14. May 2019) At the signing of the contract in Darmstadt.

The Agreement has the purpose of reapping a monitoring system for carbon dioxide in order to get a deeper understanding for climate change. Japanese Gosat satellites have been on a nearby oriental carbon dioxide and methane for ten years. European Metop satellites collect measurement data for the weather forecast and the monitoring of the climate.

The aim is also to achieve in the course of the Paris Climate Protection Agreement by 2025 with Japan’s luckless and dense amounts of carbon dioxide and methane in the atmosphere, said Bojan Bojkov from Eumetsat. It needs several missions to get good measurement data. EUMETSAT also cooperate with China and the USA.

The foisted civilians of kunduz

The Kunduz inquiry committee once again clearly shows why former Defense Minister Jung had to go

Hardly anything puts more prere on the mood at home than the news that there have been innocent victims in a robust peacekeeping operation that is actually a war. Therefore, and probably also in view of the approaching Bundestag elections, the Ministry of Defense, but also the Chancellor’s Office, has obviously tried to keep the unpleasant truth hidden as long as possible.

Mazda 6 with new 2.2-liter diesel in three power levels

Leverkusen, 12. November 2008 – Mazda freshly refreshes the 6 Series series with a new turbo diesel with 2.2 liters displacement, which replaces the 4-liter self-cord offered so far. In addition, the Japanese offer a lane change wizard for their mid-range model.

125, 163 or 185 hp

The new common rail diesel is offered in three power levels with 125, 163 or 185 hp. The values for maximum torque are 310, 360 or 400 Newton meters.

Exhaust emissions scandal: eu commission threatens proceedings

Exhaust emissions scandal: eu commission threatens proceedings

In emissions scandal, EU Commission holds out prospect of further proceedings against EU states. "I can’t give you a date, but I think the next infringement proceedings will come," EU Industry Commissioner Elzbieta Bienkowska said Thursday (8. February 2017) before the investigative committee on the emissions affair in the European Parliament. At present, however, its authorities are still collecting the necessary data.

The likely candidate for EU proceedings is Italy. Bienkowska has already threatened that she is likely to take action against the country if she does not have satisfactory answers from Rome by the end of February 2017. The Italian government has allegations that carmaker Fiat Chrysler cheated on exhaust emissions, only on Wednesday (7. February 2017) rejected. In December 2016, the EU Commission had launched proceedings against Germany and six other countries for alleged violation of European law. Bienkowska complained about the lack of will to clarify the matter in the auto industry and the national authorities. Their attitude has not changed despite the affair about falsified exhaust emissions values.

Consumers have nothing to fear in the short term, but very much in the medium term. In France and Germany, the diesel share is so high that before the election, hardly any politician will dare to change the current taxation or even announce it. But politicians, like the auto industry, are in a quandary. On the one hand, CO2 emissions are to be reduced and new environmental regulations are to be met; on the other hand, the electric car, hailed as a panacea, is not really gaining momentum. Presumably, in the fall of 2017, i.e. after the election, it will become somewhat clearer where the journey is headed. Clear guidelines were important not only for the industry, but also for the consumer. After all, after real estate, the car is the most expensive item that consumers afford on average.

Save, switch off, stroll

Save, switch off, stroll

Wolfsburg, 26. February 2014 – At the end of January, VW showed pictures of the redesigned Polo for the first time. At its trade fair premiere at the Geneva Motor Show (6. until 16. March 2014) the manufacturer also brings the Polo derivatives in a slightly different form. Almost all of them will be at the German dealers from April.

Save and switch off

As a diesel in the NEDC, the VW Polo BlueMotion will consume 3.1 liters per 100 kilometers in the future. In connection with the 45 liter tank, a range of over 1,400 kilometers would be possible. The BlueMotion economy package includes the usual ingredients: tires with low rolling resistance, modified rear and front spoilers. The Polo TSI BlueMotion is completely new with a one-liter turbo gasoline engine and 95 hp. It should come to 4.1 liters and 94 grams of CO2. It should only roll to the dealers in the course of the year.

The VW Polo BlueGT is taking a different approach. Its 1.4-liter TSI gets ten more horsepower and now has 150 horsepower. The second and third cylinders are switched off in partial load operation. If the customer has ordered the seven-speed DSG, the BlueGT should consume 4.7 liters in the NEDC, which corresponds to 108 grams of CO2. This value was allowed to be the absolute exception in practice, not least because hardly anyone buys a 150 hp Polo to set new consumption records. VW specifies the top speed at 220 km / h. The standard features of the Polo BlueGT are 17-inch aluminum, a roof spoiler and a body that has been lowered by 15 millimeters.
