EU plans online terrorist content crackdown The EUʼs Security Commission is working on a legislative proposal to be presented in September to makeInternet companies such as Facebook and Googleidentify terrorist content on their platforms and delete it immediately. The EUʼs Security Commissioner Julian King told Germanyʼs Welt newspaper on Thursday: "Despite the positive results from previous voluntary agreements, we have not seen enough progress, and in order to better protect our citizens, we must now take stronger action on terrorist content." The aim was "to create a clear, transparent framework and minimum requirements for every Internet platform that wants to offer its services to Europeans," King told the newspaper. In a response to DWʼs query on the subject, the Commission wrote: "The work on the proposal is currently ongoing and we cannot preempt the details at this stage."

UKʼs ex-foreign minister Boris Johnsonʼs Muslim burqa comments sparks Conservative Party probe His party says it will investigate
The former London mayor and UK foreign minister returned to his old job as a newspaper columnist and provoked an outcry with controversial comments about how some Muslim women dress. Complaints about Boris Johnsonʼs article in the Daily Telegraphhave led to his Conservative Party to announce an independent investigation into a possible breach of the partyʼs code of conduct. As a paid columnist for the conservativeleaning newspaper, Johnson wrote on Sunday that the Muslim burqa was oppressive, ridiculous and made women look like letter boxes and bank robbers. The article caused heated debates on social media. If the independent panel finds him culpable, Johnson faces suspension of his membership or expulsion from the party. Following the articleʼs publication, Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May agreed with critics that Johnson should apologize for his comments. "I think Boris Johnson used language in describing peopleʼs appearance that has obviously caused offence," she said. "It was the wrong language to use, he should not have used it." On Thursday, the article was still frontpage news in some British publications, with the left-leaning Daily Mir‐ rorsuggesting the government was at war as "15 top Tories" condemned Johnsonʼs "burka insult as one says it risks ʼa race war.ʼ" Others have suggested Johnson could
be positioning himself as a candidate attractive to anti-immigrant, right-wing, anti-European voters who have previously voted for the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), noting his contact with Steve Bannon, the controversial former adviser toUS President Donald Trump. Fellow proBrexit Conservative party lawmakers Jacob Rees-Moggand Michael Gove have also met with Bannon, who recently announced plans to set up a foundation in Europeto back far-right movements on the continent. Potential party leader Johnson himself is believed to be in Europe on vacation. He resigned in July over the governmentʼs Brexit plans and has long been seen as a candidate to lead the party after Theresa May. Former UKIP leader and Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage said he thought Johnsonʼs comments made him more, not less likely to be the next Conservative party leader. Interviewed in the Daily Telegraph in July, Bannon appeared to be of a similar opinion: "Now is the moment. If Boris Johnson looks at this … There comes an inflection point, the Chequers deal was an inflection point, we will have to see what happens."
Airstrike on Yemen school bus kills dozens of children An airstrike in Yemen on Thursday was reported to have killed 43 people, many of them children. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Yemen reported that following an attack on a bus driving children near Dahyan Market in the northern province of Saada, dozens of dead and wounded had been taken to a hospital it supports. The area is a Houthi-rebel stronghold. The ICRC noted via Twitter: "Under international humanitarian law, civilians must be protected during conflict." Youssef al-Hadri, a spokesman for the Houthi-controlled health ministry said most of those killed were under 15 years of age. The ICRC said most of the victims were under the age of 10. Robert Mardini of the ICRC wrote on Twitter that it was "high time for these relapsing tragedies to stop in Yemen."
Argentina Senate votes against legalizing abortion Argentine senators voted against legalizing abortion in all cases on Thursday, just weeks after the bill waspassed by the lower house of Congress in June by the narrowest of margins. The Senate voted 38 to 31 against the proposed measure. The vote came as a major setback to thehundreds of thousands of pro-choice advocateswho ran an aggressive campaign against strong opposition from the highly influential Catholic Church in the homeland of Pope Francis. The Health Ministry estimated in 2016 that as many as half a million clandestine abortions are performed in the country each year, causing the deaths of dozens of women.

Cologne ricin plotters bought a hamster to test biological weapon The wife of a Tunisian man who was detained last month over aricin-based biological weapon plotwas also arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of being an accomplice. German federal prosecutors said the 43-year-old German woman, named only as Yasmin H, was suspected of helping prepare an act of violence and helping produce biological weapons. Her husband, Sief Allah H. was arrested on June 12 for "planning a serious act of violent subversion." Read more:Ricin — an easy-to-obtain bio-weapon from the internet Hamster conspirator Prosecutors allege that Yasmin H, reportedly a convert to Islam, allowed her husband to use her online accounts to order ingredients to make ricin. The couple allegedly then bought a hamster to test the effectiveness of the toxin. On Tuesday, prosecutors said Yasmin H. had organized also a trip to Poland for her husband in late 2017 to buy explosive materials.
ʼJunkʼ art stash may yield multimillion dollar masterpieces New York gallery owner David Killen believes he has uncovered six paintings by Dutch-American abstract master Willem de Kooning, which — if verified — could be worth tens of millions of dollars. The works were part of a stash of artworks that languished in a storage locker in New Jersey until the dealer offered $15,000 for the lot. Killen is confident that a painting by legendary Swiss modernist Paul Klee is also among the artistic flotsam. A worthwhile investment A de Kooning canvas, "Untitled XXV" (pictured top), soldfor a record $66.3 million (€56.7 million) at Christieʼs in 2016, while another sold privately for a reported $300 million in 2015 — as part of a $500 million sale that include a Jackson Pollock painting. Killen estimates the discovered works could sell for between $10,000 and $10 million when they are auctioned late this year and early the next. He is planning to unveil the paintings Tuesday at a party in New York. 2
Over 260,000 children receiving benefits abroad Germany:
Germany has seen a sharp rise in the number of children outside of the country who receive monthly benefit payments. Hundreds of thousands of the recipients are children from and living in other EU countries. More and more EU citizens working in Germany are receivingchild benefit payments, even if their children arenʼt currently living in Germany, according to government figures reported by news agency dpa on Thursday. "In June 2018, child benefits were paid for 268,336 children living outside of Germany in the European Union or in the European Economic Area," a Finance Ministry spokesman told dpa. The figures are up over 10 percent from the end of 2017, which
DR Congo declares Ebola outbreak over With the help of the World Health Organization (WHO) and Doctors Without Borders, the government of the Democratic Republic of Congo has achieved something that, not long ago, hardly anyone would have thought possible. Less than three months after the first case of Ebolawas recorded in the north-westof the country, the Health Ministry on Tuesday declared the outbreak over. The authorities are following the WHO definition, which decrees that 42 days – double the incubation time – must pass after the last Ebola patient is discharged. If there is no new instances of infection in this time, the outbreak can officially be declared
saw 243,234 benefit recipients living abroad. At the end of 2016, the figure was at 232,189, reported dpa. Per month, the costs of payments for children living abroad amounts to €50 million ($60 million), per year the government pays over €600 million. The "Kindergeld" benefits consist of monthly payments for each child in a family, starting at €192 per month per child for the first two children. Payments are then staggered depending on the number of children. over. The DRCʼs health minister, Oly Illungo, has described it as a remarkable success. "With the swift reaction from the government and the involvement of the population we were able to bring the situation under control within seven weeks," Illungo said in an interview with DW.

Swimmers warned against Baltic Sea as German heat wave approaches German health officials have warned members of certain ʼat riskʼ groups to avoid swimming in the Baltic Sea as increased water temperature poses a danger from vibrio bacteria. The health ministry in Germanyʼs northeastern state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania warned that people living with HIV, the elderly, liver patients and alcohol addicts are particularly prone to bacterial infection. Germanyʼs weather service (DWD) issued a heat warning for large parts of Germany on Monday and advised the elderly and sick people to sit in the shade, drink plenty of water and avoid the heat. What are vibrio bacteria? Vibrio bacteria live in certain coastal waters and are present in higher concentrations between May and October when water temperatures are warmer, according to theCenters for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). How does infection occur? If open wounds come into contact with infected sea water, vibrio bacteria can infect the wounds. People may also become infected by eating raw or undercooked shellfish, particularly oysters. Elderly and immunosuppressed people are at particular risk of infection.
ter in the Pakistani general electionon Wednesday. Khanʼs election symbol, a cricket bat, is also omnipresent in Lahore, capital of Punjab province in eastern Pakistan. You can clearly tell that Khanʼs Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI, Movement for Justice) party is going to give Nawaz Sharifʼs Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) party a tough time in its political stronghold. Unlike in the West, election posters and banners are hugely important in Pakistan. They tell you which party has more funds and a greater presence in cities. For instance, it is difficult to find election banners for the Pakistan Peopleʼs Party (PPP), headed byBilawal Bhutto Zardari, son of late premier Benazir Bhutto. The PPP is all but finished in Pakistanʼs most populous and electorally significant Punjab province. The main electoral battle here is between the PTI and the PML-N.

Italy seizes 20 tons of hashish hidden in ship fuel tanks
Italian police have found 20 tons of cannabis resin after draining the fuel tanks of a Panama-flagged ship. Officials became suspicious after observing the 11 Montenegrin crew members. A crew of 11 Montenegrins attempted to smuggle 20 tons of hashish across the Mediterranean before they were intercepted by Italyʼs maritime police, Italian authorities said on Thursday. Officials estimate the drugʼs value at somewhere between €150 million and €200 million ($173 million and $231 million).

Italian authorities obtained permission from officials in Panama before moving in to detain the Panama-flagged vessel in international waters.
Meet the New Nazis and fairytales: York Stock Germanyʼs forests are full Exchangeʼs of hidden history only female trader On the trading floor of the New York Stock Exchange, men in expensive suits are staring hard at computer screens. Men call out the numbers. Men run frantically from one stock trading booth to the next, headsets in ear. Even the cleaner here is a man. Almost inconspicuous amid the commotion, Lauren Simmons sits at the trading stand of the investment house Rosenblatt Securities. At just under 1.60 meters tall, dressed in a short skirt and high heels, sheʼs the only female trader on the floor. "I think my story is so unique, because Iʼm not only the youngest on the floor, but also a woman and a minority," says the 23-year-old. Lauren moved from a small town in the state of Georgia to the Big Apple. "I came to the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) through a colleague," she says. Despite her studies focusing on genetics, she has always been fascinated by numbers. "Numbers are a universal language that everyone is connected to."
Few places in Germany are as brimming with tales of mythical beings as Reinhardswald. The woodland is at the heart of a 600-kilometer (372mile) route once home to magic mirrors, fairy godmothers, princesses, and goblins — if legends are to be be-

Shark in a sweater: Sergio Marchionneʼs legacy at Fiat Chrysler It was an unusually macabre tribute to his importance at the helm of one of the worldʼs largest automakers: Shares of Fiat Chrysler and Ferrari dropped in Monday trading, after it was disclosed over the weekend that CEO Sergio Marchionne was stepping down immediatelyfor health reasons. Chrysler has had its share of impressive bosses over the years — among them its founder Walter P. Chrysler and the charismatic Lee Iacocca — as did Fiat with Gianni Agnelli, but few were as hard working as 66-year-old Marchionne, who joined the Italian company in 2004. He bet big and most of his gambles paid off. But Marchionne was not only head of this industrial behemoth, he also separately led spinoffs Ferrariand CNH Industrial, a maker of busses and industrial trucks and equipment — all three of which are controlled through the Agnelli familyʼs holding company, Exor. His sudden departure could expose a lack of younger talent within the company. At the very least, itʼs a lesson in not putting all of your companies in the hands of one — albeit very talented — manager. "He taught us to think differently and to have the courage to change, often in unconventional ways, always acting with a sense of responsibility for the companies and their people," said John Elkann, grandson of Gianni Agnelli and head of Exor, in a statement .

VW has best ever sales month ahead of new test procedure
Volkswagenʼs core brand has reported record sales for July, stating that the number of cars shifted in Germany and Europe as a whole was particularly high. A looming new test procedure has much to do with it. Volkswagen Group reported Thursday that European sales of its core VW brand cars jumped by a staggering 30 percent in July to 163,000 units. The Wolfsburg-based auto manufacturer said the success was largely due to "special sales initiatives for cars approved under the outgoing NEFZ test procedure. Those carscan currently be

Technology that helps us fall asleep
If you have trouble sleeping, Julian Jagtenberg and his colleagues might have something for you: the worldʼs first sleep robot. "Itʼs like a huggable teddy bear," Jagtenberg, a robotics engineer, says while taking the robot into his arms. Its name isSomnox. Itʼs nothing more than a peanut-shaped pillow – but heavy and with a lot of technology stuffed inside. You can cuddle it; it plays meditative music; when you turn it on, it says ‘good nightʼ in Dutch; and most importantly, it breathes - just like a cat lying beside you. The pillowʼs surface rises and falls as if it is alive - this is an essential feature, Jagtenberg told DW. "It makes you synchronize subconsciously to the breathing rhythm of the robot. And we can have you breathing like a Buddhist monk in, like, a minute.”

Cats are neither mean nor cruel Cats torture mice to death, play with their victims and ignore us even though we are so good to them
In other words, they are unlike dogs. But there is a reason for this, and it isnʼt personal. Cats torture mice to death, play with their victims and ignore us even though we are so good to them. In other words, they are unlike dogs. But there is a reason for this, and it isnʼt personal.There are days when even the most convinced cat owners wish they had a dog instead. For instance, when they come home and are not greeted with exuberant, tail-wagging joy. How good it would be for the ego! Instead, as a cat owner, you hope that the cat at least notices that you are back. And above all, that it isnʼt offended that you left it alone for so
long. If you are lucky, the cat might greet you at the door and lovingly circle around your legs a few times. But whatever greeting you get, it is never as enthusiastic as that displayed by a dog. "Dogs have masters, cats have staff," goes a saying. Dogs cling to their owners, cats only to one place. But Dennis Turner doesnʼt see it that way. He is a Swiss-American biologist researching the relationship between humans and domestic cats, and director of the Institute for Applied Ethology and Animal Psychology he founded in Horgen, near Zurich.
Bed bugs: small, resistant and very hard to fight One of the worst things about bed bugs that they donʼt tell you about is the panic they still inspire years after you had to deal with them. Got a sting that looks the least bit different from your typical mosquito bite? Could be bed bugs! How about some weirdly linearlooking pimples? Could be bed bugs! Found some unidentifiable insect on the floor of your apartment? You got it – bed bugs! The paranoia struggle is real. Trust me, I know it first-hand. After a vacation in Romania in the summer of 2016, I found small, extremely
itchy bumps on my skin a couple of days after returning home. A visit to the doctor confirmed my fear: bed bugs. The parasites were common during the early 20th century before they disappeared for decades. But since the late 1990s, bed bugs have been staging a comeback. Theyʼre everywhere, not just in dirty hostels, but also in swanky hotel suites, on used furniture you buy off ebay and in the suitcase standing next to yours in an airplane cargo hold. And from there, theyʼll enter your apartment.
Parker Solar Probe: diving into the solar atmosphere For decades, solar researchers have been searching for an explanation for a mysterious phenomenon: how is it possible that the atmosphere of the sun is up to five hundred times hotter than its surface? In the atmosphere around the sun, known as the Sunʼs ʼcorona,ʼ temperatures of several million degrees Celsius prevail. But the visible surface below it, from which the corona gets its heat, is only about 5800 degrees. The incredible, unparalleled heat of the corona is a central question in solar physics. Scientists suspect the underlying mechanism probably also holds relevance for the formation of the so-called solar winds. Our Sun is a glowing hot ball of gas from which matter constantly escapes into space - this is known as ʼsolar wind.ʼ It flows out of the hot corona, and consists mainly of ionized hydrogen, electrons and protons.

From capers to yuzu – Budapest’s best gin and tonics A G&T is always a good idea. It’s a drink with a long and interesting history: alcohol flavoured with spices and juniper berries was first created in the Low Countries and conquered today’s Holland and Belgium. In the 1700s, the English took a shine to it and there were times when gin consumption in London was out of control. Prohibited in the past, gin is an indispensable part of modern bar culture today. Gin is best mingled with tonic, but more spices and a sprinkle of magic make it it the perfect summer drink. See where to find the best G&Ts in Budapest.

Europa League: Werner back as RB Leipzig face Universitatea Craiovia
Timo Werner will be back in action for the Red Bulls as they face the first leg of the tournamentʼs final qualifying round. Leipzig coach Ralf Rangnick wants his team to strike early and give themselves a cushion. RB Leipzig heads into the last phase of qualification at the Europa League this Thursday in Romania before returning to Germany for the second leg on August 16. The meeting marks the first ever meeting of the sides. Leipzig is looking for a win, on the heels of their last Europa League match against Swedish club Häcken thatended in a 1-1 draw that helped them through after a comfortable first leg win. Leipzig is expected to have Timo Werner back in the starting lineup for the first time this season. The 22-year-old forward is back from a long break after the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Aleksandar Kolarovʼs free kick stunner secures Serbia win over Costa Rica A brilliant second half free kick from captain Aleksandar Kolarov led Serbia to a deserved win over Costa Rica. Serbia were wasteful in front of goal but did enough to secure three vital points in Group E. Another World Cup day, another sublime freekick. If Cristiano Ronaldo’s ice-cold effort tosnatch a point against arch-rivals Spain on day two was the current goal of the tournament front-runner, the Portuguese may have just met his match. Aleksandar Kolarov, take a bow. A combination of poor finishing and sublime goalkeeping had kept the scores level until Serbia’s no.11 produced his moment of magic. Kolarov’s powerful left foot is no secret, but few inside the stadium would have expected such a thunderous strike when the Roma defender stood over a free kick midway through the second half. His shot was unstoppable; a side-footed missile which screamed into the top corner of the Costa Rica net. Kaylor Navas, who kept his team in the game with several crucial saves either side of half time, was nowhere near it.
Angelique Kerber loses first match post-Wimbledon The German lost to 34th-seeded Alize Cornet of France in straight sets at the Rogers Cup
Angelique Kerber did not fare well in her first match since lifting her first Wimbledon title. Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber was swiftly eliminated from the second round of the Rogers Cup by Franceʼs Alize Cornet on Wednesday, wilting in the sticky heat to a 6-4, 6-1 loss in Montreal. The match was the German lefthanderʼs first since defeating Serena Williams in last monthʼs Wimbledon final. Kerber made an uncharacteristic 32 unforced errors in the match, which lasted just 85 minutes.
"It is one match, I know I have to learn from it," said Kerber, who is currently ranked fourth in the world. "I took a few weeks off after Wimbledon so I knew I had to come here, play a lot of matches, and also to get used to the hard courts again. "Of course, it was not the plan to play just one match, but at the end, this is tennis. Every tournament starts from zero. Now Iʼll try to get ready for the next tournament."

Tiger Woods creates golf buzz as he plays himself into Open contention
With three weeks remaining to do business, the Bundesliga clubs in the Champions League still have time to improve their squads. But how has it gone so far and who still needs to bring players in? DW takes a look. 6
As The Open championship reaches its final day, Tiger Woods has remarkably played himself into contention for the title with a round of five under. On Sunday, Tiger Woods will contend for his 15th major golf championship after a remarkable performance on day three at the British Open. With the rain and wind gone, day three turned into birdie bingo and Tiger Woods delivered quite the card. Woods hit six birdies, with only a bogey at the 16th dampening his charge. For the
last eight years personal issues and back problems have forced Woodsʼ golf career onto the back burner. His last tournament win came in 2013 and since then the battle to return to competitive golf again has one been lost more often than won. That is what makes Woodsʼ performance at The Open — after missing the last two — all the more remarkable. His round of 66 was his best weekend round at a major since the 2010 US Open. Briefly, Woods was even tied for the lead, which hadnʼt happened at a major since 2012.
