Wed, 24 Sep 2014 21:30:00 GMT

The number of Poles learning German is declining. As a consequence, many German teachers have already lost their jobs. One out-of-work teacher tackled the problem with creativity: Marlena Uzieblo has been criss-crossing Poland, singing chansons by the legendary Marlene Dietrich.

Finding Refuge for the poorest in Bulgaria

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 21:30:00 GMT

Bulgaria is one of the poorest countries in the EU. Almost half of Bulgarians live in poverty or close to it. The St. Trinity Monastery in Novi Han has become a place of refuge for the poorest of the poor. Father Ivan, who's known across the country, runs the St. Nicholas Orphanage here.

Czech Republic: Bohemian Lions

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 21:30:00 GMT

An animal lover is keeping two circus lions he's rescued on his run-down farm. Ever since the lions arrived, the small Czech town of Humpolec has been in a state of alarm. Ladislav Vana loves animals so much that he's turned his home into a private zoo and shelter. Some 100 animals of all kinds have lived here for years in spartan conditions. But two young lions are the last straw for his neighbors. They're up in arms and fear for their safety. The veterinary authority sees no reason to interfere, saying ultimately the owner is liable for his animals.

Greece: The misery of migrant workers

Wed, 3 Sep 2014 21:30:00 GMT

Thousands of undocumented seasonal laborers work in Greece, among them many from Bangladesh. On the Peloponnese, they work for starvation wages harvesting strawberries and potatoes, often under conditions akin to modern-day slavery. Last year, 28 Bangladeshi strawberry pickers were shot and wounded by their foremen for demanding months of unpaid wages owed to them. The Greek courts acquitted the farmers who admitted to the shooting. Greek human rights activists say that racism against Asian migrant workers is to blame. But without legal work permits, their desperate circumstances will likely continue.

Crimea: Changing Sides

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 21:30:00 GMT

After the annexation of the Ukrainian peninsula by Russia, people there are trying to return to everyday life. But the road to normality is long, and political stances in Kyiv and Moscow have solidified. While politicians argue about topics such as possession of Crimea, how to feed the people on the peninsula and what will happen to tourism, the football club hitherto known as FC Sevastopol has its own worries. The team used to play in the Ukrainian Premier League. Now under another name and with a changed squad, they've been incorporated into the third division of the Russian league. But the Ukrainian football federation is opposed to the move - as are the international associations FIFA and UEFA.

France: Charm and Arrogance

Wed, 13 Aug 2014 21:30:00 GMT

Familiar scenarios for foreign tourists in Paris: a waiter brings coffee instead of water, or a hotel clerk supposedly can't understand English. Service in France is in need of improvement. France remains a hugely popular tourist destination. Hotel bookings are decreasing year by year, however, especially in the capital Paris. Service there doesn't exactly have the best reputation, while not speaking French can also be a major problem. That's set to change. Voluntary city guides called Paris Greeters accompany small groups of tourists, showing them local life in their own parts of town. At the same time, hotel and restaurant owners in particular are resisting the newly prescribed hospitality.

Wed, 6 Aug 2014 21:30:00 GMT

France is home to Europe’s largest Jewish and Muslim communities. The start of the Israeli military offensive in the Gaza strip has prompted a number of anti-Israel protests. In Sarcelles, a suburb of Paris, Jews and Muslims have traditionally lived peacefully side by side - shopping at the stores or playing soccer together. Now many Jewish families are concerned for their safety due to antagonism and threats from Muslim protesters, and have bought weapons for self-defense. Imams and rabbis are trying to de-escalate the tension and aggression.

The Netherlands: When grief turns to anger

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 21:30:00 GMT

The national mourning in the Netherlands after the downing of flight MH17 is turning towards anger and frustration as the investigation on-site continues to face obstacles. For many in the Netherlands, the repatriation of bodies of the victims is proceeding too slowly. They believe Moscow is responsible for the downing of the Malaysia Airlines flight. A number of parents of victims have demanded that Russian President Vladimir Putin personally ensure the bodies of their children are returned. Some are also calling for the deportation of Putin’s daughter, who lives in a luxury penthouse in Voorschoten, an affluent suburb of the Hague. There were 298 passengers on board flight MH17, among them 193 Dutch citizens.

Bulgaria: Beefing up the border

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 21:30:00 GMT

Europe continues to fortify its borders to the rest of the world, and Bulgaria is no exception. They’ve just spend 4.6 million euros building a new fence along their border with Turkey. It's only three meters high and 30 kilometers long, but the new barbed wire fence along the Bulgarian-Turkish border reveals a lot about relations between the European Union and the oft-tumultuous neighboring regions. Sofia hopes the new barrier will prevent refugees, most of them Syrians fleeing from civil war, from entering the country. Those who do make it across the border often find themselves housed in Bulgarian refugee camps, which are known for their poor conditions.

Italy: The heart of the Mafia

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 21:30:00 GMT

The Ndrangheta is the most powerful Italian Mafia syndicate. But to evade law enforcement, its organizers have had to go underground. The Ndrangheta is rich, powerful, and heavily involved with drug cartels all over the world. But the bosses can’t be seen in public. Instead, they hide out from the police in underground bunkers that are connected to ordinary houses. The region of Calabria is the hub of their international drug trafficking operation - and an excellent hideout. Shielded by a code of silence, the Mafia bosses live with the tacit protection of the local population.

Spain: Deadly Danger for Europe's Vultures

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 21:30:00 GMT

Spain is home to the largest population of vultures in Europe, but their numbers are steadily declining. A new drug for cattle now threatens to wipe out the vultures altogether. Vultures have long had a bad reputation in Spain. Time and time again, the birds are illegally poisoned, because they are said to prey on living cattle. Now the EU has authorized the administration of veterinary diclofenac to livestock in Spain and Italy - a deadly threat to the four species of vultures that live in Spain. The anti-inflammatory drug has already led to the near-extinction of the vulture population in India, Pakistan and Nepal. The birds ingest the substance when eating the carcasses of cattle treated with the drug, and die of kidney failure.

Italy: Europe's Mightiest Volcano

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 21:30:00 GMT

Mount Etna is both fascinating and feared, and it attracts thousands of tourists every year. But for two weeks there have been new eruptive fissures. The summit has been closed off since they appeared. Three volcanoes constantly keep Italy on tenterhooks: Stromboli, the most active; the unpredictable Vesuvius; and the tallest, Mount Etna. At a height of 3352 meters, it visibly dominates much of the eastern coast of Sicily. Time and again, earthquakes shake the region, clouds of ash darken the skies and lava flows destroy houses high up on the mountain. A team of volcanologists and rangers on site monitor every movement Etna makes. Theoretically, an eruption could happen at any time.

The civil war in Iraq is creating new opportunities for Kurds in the north of the country. They are becoming an example for many of their fellow Kurds over the border in Turkey. Many Kurds in Turkey are looking forward with hope and concern at events in Iraq. As the militant group ISIS continues its push to take Baghdad, the Kurds in autonomous regions are consolidating more and more power. For some time now, there's been talk of an independent Kurdish state that would extend beyond the borders of Iraq.

Romania: Rivers Run Dry

Wed, 16 Jul 2014 21:30:00 GMT

Hydroelectric power is booming in Romania. Government subsidies are drawing more and more investment into the sector. Conservationists, however, argue that while hydropower does not produce greenhouse gases, too many dams could cause entire rivers to dry up in the summer. They point to the southern Carpathian Mountains, where about 500 hydroelectric power plants - some still being built - are located. The wild rapids at these sites are particularly lucrative for investors. At the same time, many of the projects are also located in conservation areas, and the damage to habitats is severe. Residents of the region are fighting to keep the remaining streams and rivers in Romania untouched.

Britain: Operation "Trojan Horse”

Wed, 9 Jul 2014 21:30:00 GMT

For months, debate has raged in Birmingham over the role of Islam in the city’s schools. An anonymous warning about Muslim fundamentalists has authorities alarmed. The allegations are serious: there are indications of an organized campaign to covertly co-opt schools in England. An inquiry discovered that at several schools in Birmingham, girls and boys were segrated. At some schools, Arabic is a required subject, and Christian holidays are no longer observed. School trips are organized to Mecca and Medina. The conservative education minister, Michael Gove, has announced that with the coming school year, all state schools are required to teach "British values.” The schools under investigation have rejected the accusations.

Poland: Test Tube Babies

Wed, 9 Jul 2014 21:30:00 GMT

Many Polish couples with fertility problems are fulfilling their wish for children by using artificial fertilization techniques. One Warsaw woman is expected her second child using this method. The surprising thing is that, while the entire family had to collect money to pay for her first artificial insemination, her second test tube baby is being funded by the government. Laws have been relaxed in Poland, a Catholic country where some priests refuse to baptize babies conceived through in vitro fertilization. Still, the method has been used in that country since 1987, and now the state is even helping defray the costs of the expensive reproductive procedure.

Recent polls indicate that around 30 percent of Scots are still undecided about how they'll vote. Brussels has already made it clear that should Scotland choose to become independent it wouldn't automatically qualify to stay in the EU. But other practical issues remain unclear and are dividing the Scottish people.

Wed, 2 Jul 2014 21:30:00 GMT

An estimated 6,000 homeless people live in the network of sewers and tunnels beneath the streets of Bucharest. Many were born underground and are now having children themselves. It's a world of its own, a world full of drugs, disease and poverty that's developed beneath the capital. The sewer dwellers live in the tunnels, canals, and sometimes in caves they've dug themselves, because they have nowhere else to go. Many have tuberculosis, hepatitis or are HIV positive, and live in tightly organized groups. Children in particular sniff paint to escape their misery -- at least for a while.

Under the 46-year-old's leadership, the city of Lviv has become a role model for all of Ukraine. The electrical engineer has built up the infrastructure and lured investors to the city. He says the key to his country's future is to give municipalities more authority. Sadovyi feels the government in Kiev should relinquish central powers in cases where local authorities can deal with issues better.

Although most have since been found, 834 children who disappeared within the last five years remain missing. Currently the police are looking for almost 1500 children.

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 21:30:00 GMT

Every year tens of thousands of baby deer are inadvertently killed by harvesting equipment while they're hiding in tall grass. A project in Germany is now saving many animals from an early death. We usually associate aerial drones with surveillance and destruction. It's less well known that they can also save lives. Just such a deployment is being tried at present in the Fichtel Mountains. A team of electronic engineers is using a drone to search meadows and fields where deer are suspected. The device has two eyes in the form of one infrared and one color camera. The infrared camera locates the animals by detecting their body heat. The color camera then ascertains whether they actually are deer. So far, it's been a striking success.

Once again, tens of thousands of people are crossing the Mediterranean Sea to come to Europe. To rescue them from drowning, the Italian navy has authorized a military and humanitarian mission, Mare Nostrum. The Italian navy has five ships on permanent deployment patrolling the waters. Their mission is to rescue refugees and people in distress and bring them to safety. The refugees who get stranded in Italy are mainly from Syria and east Afridca, but they know they could be deported to their home countries at any time, so they often try to conceal their identities, hoping to stay in Europe.

The Spanish authorities are now trying to use new regulations to stem the excesses and give the island a new image.

Europe has voted - and, in a few countries, far-right parties have grown stronger. Denmark is among the countries to see major gains for right-wing euroskeptic parties. The Danish People’s Party (DF) won the largest share of the vote, beating the governing Social Democrats into second place. The results will give the party three of the country’s 13 seats in the European Parliament. The DF has, however, ruled out an alliance with anti-EU parties, citing the right-wing Front National in France as too extremist.

Romania: Small Farmers Feeling the Squeeze

Wed, 28 May 2014 21:30:00 GMT

In Romania the agricultural industry is conforming to EU norms. Factory farms are favored, while small-scale farmers lose out. Most farmers in Romania are small-scale producers with a small patch of land. Their production methods are inefficient, and EU law caters to intensive farming, so family farms lose out. Now they also have to adhere to EU-wide hygiene standards, which are proving too expensive for many. As a result, some traditional foods -- including certain varieties of tomatoes and cheese -- could vanish from supermarket shelves.

Wed, 7 May 2014 21:30:00 GMT

The far-right Front National has its sights set on the European elections this month. The party's anti-immigration platform is finding favor with many voters. The Front National is hoping to capitalize on its recent success in municipal elections, when it won the mayoral vote in a number of cities, including the town of Hayange in eastern France. In response, the municipality's sister cities of Arlon in Belgium and Diekirch in Luxembourg have cut official ties with Hayange. The new mayor isn’t bothered, though. His party isn’t just opposed to immigration and in favor of leaving the euro - it also condemns freedom of movement within the EU.
