German finance minister Olaf Scholz warns of 'German Trump' if pensions reforms not backed by Merkel » Full Story

German finance minister Olaf Scholz warns of 'German Trump' if pensions reforms not backed by MerkelGermany's finance minister warned that a "German Trump" may seize power as he claimed pension reform is the key to preventing the rise of populism in Europe. “Stable pensions prevent a German Trump. That's why politicians should not shirk this topic,” Olaf Scholz, who is also vice-chancellor, said yesterday. Mr Scholz has been pushing for government reforms similar to the UK’s triple lock to ensure pension levels remain stable despite inflation. The vice-chancellor has something of a reputation for dullness in Germany, but he insisted the issue has implications that go far beyond his brief as finance minister. “The way I see it is this: globalisation and digitalisation create wealth, but they are also changing our world at a fast pace,” Mr Scholz told Bild am Sonntag newspaper in an interview.  “Citizens rightly expect us to do everything we can to make sure they live securely. If we do not do that, then the hour of nationalist populism will have struck.” Profile | Angela Merkel Mr Scholz has brought pensions centre stage in his quest to carve out new territory for his centre-Left Social Democrat party (SPD), which is junior partner in Angela Merkel’s coalition government. Mrs Merkel has agreed to secure pension levels until 2025, but Mr Scholz wants them guaranteed until 2040 and has threatened to make them a major issue in 2021’s election. After recording its worst ever results in last year’s election, the SPD leadership is desperate for an issue that will allow the party to differentiate itself from Mrs Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU). The SPD has continued to sink lower in the opinion polls, and at times has slipped behind the nationalist Alternative for Germany party (AfD).  A new poll showed that the conservatives had lost one percentage point to poll at 30 percent, while the SPD was steady at 17 percent. That means that if Germany voted again tomorrow, the grand coalition would not have enough support to govern. The poll, conducted by the Emnid institute, showed the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party gaining one point to 15 percent, and the pro-business Free Democrats adding one point to poll at 9 percent. But Mr Scholz insisted the SPD leadership was not panicking. “We are in this for the long haul and have to keep cool,” he said. “If we show a clear attitude and do the right thing over the long term, the people will feel comfortable with the idea of an SPD chancellor in 2021.” The finance minister has also pledged to push for EU reforms to reduce the amount of child benefits Germany has to pay to children living in other member states. Under EU current rules member states have to pay child benefits to anyone who is legally resident, even if their children live in another country. Germany currently pays benefits for more than 260,000 children in other EU countries. Mr Scholz  wants the rules changed so the level of benefits is linked to the cost of living where the children are resident.




Deadly, 40,000-foot fire tornado revealed in new videos » Full Story

Deadly, 40,000-foot fire tornado revealed in new videosHarrowing new footage released by California's firefighting agency Cal Fire reveals the massive fire tornado that led to the death of a firefighter on July 26. The fire tornado was part of the Carr Fire that's engulfed 223,610 acres of land in Northern California so far. A report from Cal Fire breaks down the details surrounding the fiery phenomenon. SEE ALSO: A fire tornado hit California. Here's how it happened. Per the report, the tornado "was a large rotating fire plume that was roughly 1,000 feet in diameter at its base" and managed to reach a height of 40,000 feet.  In late July, we covered news of a fire tornado in the area on the evening of July 26. It's unclear whether the fire tornado in the report is the same as the one that garnered media attention at the time, according to Cal Fire.  "Observations from witnesses and other evidence suggest that either several fire tornados occurred at different locations and times, or one fire tornado formed and then periodically weakened and strengthened causing several separate damage areas," the report says. Fire tornados can happen when extreme heat spins up from the ground. As Mashable's Mark Kaufman explained at the time: Firefighters captured the disturbing video above from a helicopter, as well as footage taken from a fire engine, and from the Keswick Dam on the Sacramento River.  The Carr Fire continues to ravage parts of Shasta County and Trinity County. It is 77 percent contained, and other fires continue to rage in Northern California and other areas These fires are spurred on by extreme heat and dryness in the region. While human-caused climate change isn't necessarily the direct cause of any single weather event, like these fires, it can make extreme weather more likely now and in the future.

New panda mom doesn't know she has twins thanks to these sneaky zookeepers » Full Story

New panda mom doesn't know she has twins thanks to these sneaky zookeepersCrafty zookeepers are keeping a set of newborn panda twins alive by switching them out every day.  Although twins aren't uncommon, when pandas have multiple babies they tend to devote all of their attention to only one of their cubs, leaving the other to starve.  SEE ALSO: Someone tried to smuggle a snake onto a plane by hiding it in a hard drive But these zookeepers have managed to get new panda moms to care for both babies by rotating them out, tricking the pandas into believing they only have one cub to care for. A BBC Earth video — narrated by the one and only David Attenborough — shows the keepers' technique.  New mother Lee Lee hasn't realized that she had twins because her keepers have been switching her 18-day-old cubs out, so she only has one at a time.  When they need to change out the cubs, they distract Lee Lee with a bowl of honey water and worm the young cub from her paws. Then, they put that cub in an incubator and bring the other cub to Lee Lee, ensuring that both get the maternal care they need.  Keepers swap the cubs out at least 10 times a day, keeping a meticulous record of the babies' time with their mom.  The technique has an almost 100 percent survival rate. Although pandas are no longer endangered, they are still vulnerable, so finding new ways to help the species along, even in captivity, is important. Plus, it's freaking adorable.

Tough talks, no agreements at Merkel, Putin meeting near Berlin » Full Story

Tough talks, no agreements at Merkel, Putin meeting near BerlinKremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters no agreements were reached, but the meeting had simply been intended to "check the watches" after Merkel's meeting with Putin in the Black Sea resort of Sochi in May. Ties between the two countries have been strained since Russia's annexation of the Crimea region of Ukraine in 2014. "That’s why it is necessary to take measures against possible non-competitive and illegal attacks from the third countries in order to complete this project eventually," he told reporters shortly before Putin flew back to Russia. At the start of the talks, Merkel underscored her expectation that Ukraine should continue to have a role in gas transit to Europe, and welcomed the start of discussions among the European Union, Ukraine and Russia on that issue.

French bridges 'at risk of collapse' » Full Story

French bridges 'at risk of collapse'More than 800 road bridges in France are at risk of collapsing within a few years, according to a survey carried out for the Transport Ministry that has raised alarm following the Genoa tragedy. The July report, commissioned by the ministry from two private consultancies, predates the Italian motorway bridge collapse in which four French holidaymakers were killed on Tuesday, but French media have highlighted its findings this week. It says that about 840 French bridges, a third of those maintained by the state, show evidence of damage that could present “a risk of collapse” if they are not reinforced. The report also pointed out that bridges in France “are only repaired, on average, 22 years after the appearance of the first deterioration”. Pressure is mounting on the government to specify which bridges are affected, but no list has so far been made public. The Transport Ministry is playing down the danger. An official told France Info radio that there was no cause for panic. “When bridges are described as being in ‘poor or very poor condition’, you have to take into account that we are talking about fragility over the long term. No structures will be open to the public if they are not completely safe. If there is the slightest risk, action will be taken immediately.” But a French engineer who worked with Norman Foster, the British architect, on the design of the “Millau Viaduct”, a four-lane motorway bridge across the Tarn river valley in southern France, was less reassuring. Michel Virlogeux told France 3 TV: “Money and skilled engineers are needed [to maintain infrastructure]. But I think there are fewer human resources than we had 20 years ago.” The Transport Ministry says it has increased funding allocated for repairs by nearly 15 per cent to about £600,000 this year. “We wish to make further large increases,” said Elisabeth Borne, the minister. “This decision will be discussed and debated in parliament in the autumn.” Dominique Bussereau, who served as a junior transport minister under the presidency of Nicolas Sarkozy, said far too little had been spent on maintaining infrastructure in recent years. “We’ve been spending €700 million a year but it should be €1.3 billion.”

Mueller says former Trump aide should spend six months in jail for lying to FBI in Russia probe » Full Story

Mueller says former Trump aide should spend six months in jail for lying to FBI in Russia probeSpecial prosecutor Robert Mueller has recommended a former foreign policy aide to Donald Trump's 2016 campaign be jailed for up to six months for lying to the FBI.
