>The news-show ‘Heute’ says that Germany desperately needs more pediatricians. In some Areas the situation is so bad that no mother can send her child to a doctor as there are no pediatricians within reach.
>Also this news-show says that in Europe enterprises that have anything to do with winter-sports are worried now as the latest examination proved that due to an intense summer 2018 the glaciers are shrinking and a lot of the snow that used to be permanently on the top of the Alps did not survive the heat.
>‘Heute’ says that Mouraria in Lisbon used to be a very poor area where nobody lived voluntarily due to a high crime rate. However within this decade the economical situation has changed for the better. Alas this also resulted in many landlords renovating their buildings – after all they now have enough money to do so – and raising the rent. Thus meanwhile especially elderly, retired people struggle to pay their rent and worry that someday they may have to leave their home.

The latest episode of the German informative TV-show “SONNENSEITE” was about mold on food:
>If you find mold on a slice of bread or pastry, you better throw the whole thing out. Without any scientific instruments it may be hard to tell whether or not this is a deadly type of mold as there indeed are different types of mold. Also without scientific instruments you may not be able to tell how much of the dough actually is contaminated with mold. After all it’s not like you can see through the dough as though it were made of glass, is it?
>Sausage and ham are known for developing mold deep below the surface first. Thus after cutting off some slices you should always check them for any traces of mold.
>After cooking the cooked meal may develop mold within days. So be careful.
>Soft cheese, yoghurt and sour cream are prone to mold as well.
>Sweet, mushy things like jam too may develop mold quickly.
>The softer a fruit the easier for the mold to spread below ist surface. So instead of cutting off the moldy pieces you should throw away the whole soft fruit.
>Hard cheese, hard salami and raw ham may still be edible after developing mold. Just make sure you cut off all of the mold. Avoid any direct contact between the knife and the mold and wash the knife thoroughly if by accident you touch the mold with the knife.
>Hard fruits and vegetables (for example apples and carrots) can still be eaten after you cut off the moldy parts.

Well, and I’m sure the EU also uses cyanide. Maybe the problem is that the EU and the USA have more safety regulations to avoid pollution. I have no idea. I was merely repeating what I read and don’t know much about chemistry.

The German monthly newspaper ‘GEO’ says that scientists in Wagening (the Netherlands) now created a new PC-program to observe the stability of herds of wild animals in the savannas of Africa. This program will search through photos made by satellites to find some that potentially show the animals in question.
