Famous Fountain Becomes Off Limits to Tourists in Rome.

Art, Europe, News
The city council of Rome is backing a controversial plan to put up a mesh and concrete barrier around the ancient and honored Trevi Fountain.

Greece and Turkey Thrash Out Differences at the Conference Table.

Europe, News, Politics
During the past year relations between Turkey and Greece have simmered just below a boil, with both sides accusing the other of breaches of faith, borders, and intent. Provocative exchanges between the two countries are nothing new -- ever since the end of World War Two the two sovereign nations have rattled sabers at each other as regular as clockwork over a number of perceived insults and threats. But last Friday the Turkish Foregin Ministry appeared to be willing to turn down the rhetoric a wee bit, as it issued a diplomatic communique to Greece calling for ‘sustained dialogue in lieu of armed confrontation’ in matters of disputed territory and fishing rights. Fishing in the eastern Mediterranean has been a sore spot between the two countries, more so now than…

Europe, Finance
The Finance Minister of France, Bruno Le Maire, set off a firestorm of controversy last month when he proposed a hefty ‘digital tax’ on internet giants like Apple, Facebook, Amazon, and Google -- as well as smaller companies that exist mainly in the cloud and have been making good money from French online consumers. The new tax, which the French government prefers to call a three-percent import duty, will affect any company that does more than 25 million euros worth of business in France per annum.  The United States was quick to respond to the proposed new tax by threatening to impose higher tariffs on imports from France such as cheese and champagne.
