euronews business planet - Rising to new challenges
 
03:20
http://www.euronews.com/ This edition of Business Planet takes us to Timisoara, one of Romania's three major economic hubs, a very dynamic region virtually devoid of unemployment. Entrepreneurs in the region are not short of ideas on how to develop their businesses. The Prospero bakery is an example. Founded in 1991, the company has experienced massive growth. It now employs 180 people, and turnover last year reached five million euros. Four years ago, the company invested heavily in a brand new building, state-of-the-art machines and six new delivery lorries. To get the funds needed to develop her business, Adina Bugescu, whose parents founded the bakery, turned to the Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture. Its consultants are members of the Enterprise Europe Network. They worked on a business plan together and Adina secured a European grant worth 750,000 euros. "This helped us increase our productivity and make sure we complied with European standards. Between the time the investment was made and today, turnover has increased by 25 percent and we have hired 60 people," says Adina Bugescu, co-owner of the bakery. For more than 20 years, the Bugescu family's bakery has been making bread that is 100 percent natural, without preservatives or premixes - a choice that apparently appeals to customers. Adina wants to develop the business further. "Today, we have 14 bakeries. The aim is to open up more, to increase productivity and production. And we have another dream: we want to start a baking school," she told us. The Enterprise Europe Network, which has representatives all over Europe and in the rest of the world, helps SMEs like Adina's get European funding and access new markets through seminars and missions. Octavian Culda, the EEN consultant in Timisoara, told euronews: "We take part in three or four missions abroad each year through the European Enterprise Network - throughout the European Union, and in the past two years, in the United States as well." Adina has this advice for anyone seeking to expand their business successfully: "The keys to success are: to clearly identify what you need funding for before seeking it. Then you need to find a consultant who understands the philosophy of your business."

It is the realisation of a project dreamt up by Ottoman sultans more than a century ago. The tunnel is the world's first connecting two continents and was inaugurated on the 90th anniversary of the Republic of Turkey. The engineering feat spans 13 kilometres and will carry subway commuters in Istanbul, which is Europe's biggest city with a population of 15 million people. An estimated two million cross the Bosphorus Strait daily. Work began in 2004 on what is one of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan pet projects designed to change the face of Turkey.Archaeological excavations delayed completion. Eventually the tunnel will serve high-speed and freight trains. The idea for a rail tunnel below the Bosphorus dates back to 1860 while it is believed at one time one Sultan had French engineers draw up plans for a submerged tunnel which was never built and the peninsula remained intact. Now the Marmaray tunnel, an immersed tube set in the seabed has joined the two continents. One point four kilometres of its full length is fully immersed some 60 metres below the surface. It can carry around 1.5 million passengers per day. The total cost topped three point three billion euros and the government hopes it will develop into an important trading route. Marmaray is set on a silty seabed and is 20 kilometres from the active North Anatolian Fault raising fears it could be at risk from a large earthquake. But its free floating structure has been designed to withstand a quake with a magnitude of 9. Its interlocking construction means each section can be sealed off. The Yenikapi station on the European side of Istanbul will showcase relics which were uncovered during the tunnel's construction. Many date back as far a 8,500 years. The excavation site included a Byzantine port and 13 shipwrecks. Find us on: Youtube http://bit.ly/zr3upY Facebook http://www.facebook.com/euronews.fans Twitter http://twitter.com/euronews

A million refugees arrived in Germany in 2015, with the peak migration being reached in September, when Chancellor Merkel decided to open the frontiers. The Syrian drama produced an impressive wave of solidarity among Germans, with men, women and children being welcomed with open arms, without any limits, or any checks. But this generosity was not unanimous. In Bavaria Horst Seehofer, head of the local government and the CSU party in government with Merkel's CDU, demanded in January frontier … READ MORE : http://www.euronews.com/2016/09/13/merkel-starting-to-feel-immigration-backlash-in-germany What are the top stories today?

Eco-businesses employ a total of 3.4 million people across Europe. This week, Business Planet takes a trip to Croatia for a closer look at a very specific kind of innovation: noise barriers. The noise barriers being built along the motorway near Zagreb are spearheading innovation. They are made up of 40 percent of recycled tyres and are among the most efficient on the market. They are the result of a project launched in 2009 as part of the European Eco-Innovation programme. One of the companies involved in their production is an SME which recycles tyres, turning them into a powder used to build the barriers. It's a great opportunity for innovation, says the company's chairman: "If we achieve the goals that were set, we're hoping to hire up to 30 people and double our production capacity," says Damir Kirić, the chairman of Gumiimpex. The powder is mixed with cement at another factory, where the noise barriers are moulded. Here, too, it's hoped the project will help hire an extra 60 people. "It's opened up new doors. We're hoping to increase turnover by 25 percent in Croatia, but also in neighbouring countries," says the Managing Director of Beton Lučko, Danica Jelenić. It's a serious investment. Danica Jelenić put in 355 000 euros. She is delighted with the result. "Taking part in this project has really strengthened our position. We're taken seriously by other players on the market," she says. The European Eco-Innovation programme gives access to subsidies to launch a project. To this day, it has benefited 200 projects throughout Europe. The noise barrier project was born at Zagreb University. It is the brainchild of professor Stjepan Lakušić. Half of the project was funded by the Eco-Innovation programme, which provided half a million euros. Now, the plan is to sell this innovative technology to neighbouring countries, where there is always a need for fresh ideas on how to recycle tyres. "You need 65 tonnes of recycled tyres to produce a kilometre-long barrier that's one metre high. That's 8,000 old tyres," says RUCONBAR Project Coordinator Stjepan Lakušić. This new technology has already attracted a number of potential buyers seduced by the low production cost. "Using recycled products brings down the cost by ten to eighteen percent compared to similar products on the market," says Stjepan Lakušić.

Former Khmer Rouge soldier faces up to past
 
06:18
http://www.euronews.com/ Welcome to Kampong Thom, cradle of Pol Pot, the infamous Khmer Rouge leader.   We are here to meet Chin Meth, on her journey through history.   Enrolled by the Khmer Rouge at the age of 17, she has decided to be a witness against a former Khmer Rouge leader on trial.    "When I come back to my native village, I feel sad because I've lost all I had here," she says.   Just like her village, Chin Meth still bears the marks of that painful era. "My mother was dead. I was brought up by my aunt, and then I was called to be a Khmer Rouge soldier. When I came home, all my relatives were dead. My uncle, my great-aunt, and the 20 friends who had been enrolled with me," she says.   Chin Meth's life changed drastically in 1974, when she was recruited by the Khmer Rouge along with all the other young people in her village.   She didn't yet know she was about to serve a regime of terror which would lead to the death of some two million Cambodians - around one fifth of the country's population.   Chin Meth and her fellow female recruits were "re-educated" by the party to serve the revolution.   "They trained us to be tough, not to think about our relatives, or our parents," she says. "We had to sacrifice everything, including our personal belongings."   Chin Meth was then taught how to use weapons. On the battlefield, her female unit was in charge of carrying ammunition, and evacuating the wounded.   When the Khmer Rouge moved on Phnom Penh in 1975, the women were in charge of cleaning up the houses of those chased from their homes. "When I was cleaning up the people's belongings, I saw dead bodies in the houses," she says.   "The Khmer Rouge soldiers evacuated the town over three days. Everyone had to leave. There were people who didn't want to leave their belongings behind, and old people who didn't want to or couldn't leave their homes. They were killed on the spot."   She was then sent to work in the fields by the Khmer regime. Conditions were extremely harsh. "At first, when we worked in the rice fields, we were well fed. But then we were given only a bit of rice, mixed with tree roots, maize or swamp cabbage. My group started to rebel."   As a result, she was sent to Phnom Penh's infamous Tuol Sleng prison, otherwise known as S21. More than 12,000 people died in this former school that Pol Pot's regime turned into a prison camp.   "This picture was taken when I was arrested, I was 19," she says, pointing out her mugshot among hundreds of others on the wall.   "This is my friend from the same village as me, and this is another friend. This one was the group leader. They're all dead."   "I was held captive here, there were three of us in here, for nearly a month," she says, pointing out a tiny cell.   "I could hear the sound of blows and screams coming from upstairs. That's where I was interrogated and tortured. I still have the scars."   She survived the death camp and was sent to work in another camp, called S24, which is now a prison. She spent two years there, along with women and children, half of whom did not survive the working conditions.   "It was hell, worse than death. I worked the fields, I was tortured, I built dams, I dug dykes. We pulled the cart instead of the oxen to plough the fields. My feet were full of sores, my face was covered with skin disease. We were so thin that when we crouched, our knees reached up over our heads," she says.   When the Vietnamese invaded and took over Phnom Penh in 1979, the Khmer Rouge forced her to flee to the mountains with them. She was captured by the Vietnamese a year later, and then released.   After years of silence, Chin Meth decided to face up to the past by bearing witness at the trials of former Khmer Rouge leaders.   The first opened in 2009. She was the first female survivor to testify against Duch, former head of the S21 and S24 camps.   "It takes time to forget past sorrows," she says. "I can't forget. Even though the court has condemned former Khmer Rouge leaders, until this day, I haven't forgotten anything."   For a while, Chin Meth lived in fear of reprisals from relatives of those who were put on trial.   It is the price to pay, she says, to be rehabilitated as a member of the Cambodian community, and help build a better future for her country.   Find us on: Youtube http://bit.ly/zr3upY Facebook http://www.facebook.com/euronews.fans Twitter http://twitter.com/euronews

It has been brought up from the bottom of Lake Chebarkul in the Urals. The piece of space rock is believed to be the largest to hit earth when a meteor broke up above the towns of Chelyabinsk, Yekatarinburg and Tyumen. Scientists from the University of Chelyabinsk led the recovery. Andrei Kochekov, Director of Innovation and Expertise at the university, told reporters: "If its weight is more than 500 kilograms then the object is unique in itself. One of the biggest meteors of its class, the stone type." The force of the shock wave of the meteorite was estimated to be as strong as 20 Hiroshima atomic bombs. More than 1,600 people were injured by the effects of its landing. Thousands more watched in awe as the meteor exploded before their eyes, falling to earth in a shower of light.

euronews Life - Thailand's spiritual soul
 
05:19
http://www.euronews.com/ Buddhism is an essential part of Thai culture which has retained its significance in the modern world. In the second edition of Thai Life we are looking at the fourth largest religion in the world. We'll also get to experience one of the most important dates in the Buddhist calendar: Vishaka Bucha day. The monotonous chanting of the monks sets the spiritual tone of the festival. The whole of Thailand comes together to celebrate the birth, enlightenment and the passing of Buddha. However, this year's festivities are extra special: it's the 2,600th anniversary of Buddha's enlightenment and Thailand is getting ready to host visiting Buddhists from all over the world. Kim McSweeney is an Australian Buddhist devotee: "It's beautiful to see everybody in national dress, coming together in a cultural way, it's always in a spiritual way. And it's wonderful to see other traditions, there are other monks here. I have just met some Cambodian monks and there are Chinese ones as well and all the different nationalities are represented because we all come together with our hearts for Buddha." Buddha - the awakened one - is not worshipped as a saint, but as a role model and as the religion has no God, its keystones are personal and spiritual development. Followers are encouraged to learn and apply Buddha's practices to daily life, as Ajahn Jayasaro explains: "Buddhism is a different kind of religion to the ones that we are familiar with in the West. If the religious traditions of the West could be characterised as belief systems, Buddhism is a education system. So it's a whole different idea of what a religion is or what it should be." For Chantri Srivichai, Visakha Bucha day is a precious time where the entire family comes together. With her sisters in law in tow, Chantri sets off to market to prepare offerings for the monks. She talks to euronews about the food she plans to make: "We offer alms to the monks. For fresh food we have chicken wings. We also have Thai sweets and the traditional Thai soup tom yum goong." Passed from generation to generation, the art of folding the Lotus flower is an integral part of the preparations. Representing purity, the Lotus is an important Buddhist symbol. Up since 4am, Chantri and her family head to the temple in their best dress as hundreds of followers line the path with tables of offerings, anxiously awaiting the monks arrival from the golden mountain. "I feel very happy, very delighted. We've all come here as a family to attend the ceremony and to honour Buddha. I feel so good, we're all healthy and we think of our ancestors and share our happiness with them." Chantri Srivichai said. It is a symbiotic relationship. The people honour the monks with physical support, like food and money, while the monks offer spiritual support based on meditation. This is at the heart of Buddhism and is fast becoming popular throughout the world. Ajahn Jayasaro, a Monk describes how daily life can be detrimental to reaching enlightenment: "Our life is such a busy, distracted life that we loose contact with the inner world. When you let go of that addiction to thought and activity and allow the mind to settle down often there are insights just popping up in your mind which were there already but you couldn't really communicate with them or couldn't really hear them." Banjob Bannayuki, a Buddhist expert gives his views on how to meditate: "It's not difficult, it's easy: meditation starts with keeping mindfulness. You can practice meditation everywhere, every time when you walk you meditate you keep mindfulness on your walking." The highlight of the celebrations is "Wien Tien", a candle-lit procession where devotees walk three times around the temple whilst meditating, their right side facing Buddha, to cleanse their souls.

But how safe are these simple devices and how effective are they at helping smokers kick the habit? So far there has been too little research done to arrive at any firm conclusions. In the meantime the European Parliament is gearing up to legislate on the e-cigarette amid concerns that it could be a health risk. Its supporters claim there is no justification for a ban or restrictions that would deprive smokers of access to a vital aid in their battle to quit.

euronews business planet - Micro-credit brings organic growth in Ireland
 
03:03
http://www.euronews.com/ Business Planet has been to Dublin. The third country after Greece and Portugal to need an international financial bailout, it is forecast Ireland will come out of recession this year. A major problem for small and medium companies is still access to credit. But euronews met one entrepreneur who found a way around that. The adventure began for Darren Grant in 2008. He had decided to leave behind his senior management job in computing to open a supermarket dealing in 100 per cent organic goods on the main street of Blackrock in Dublin. Even though the recession was taking hold, he believed in his project. He invested all of his savings, but was still short of funds to fit-out his shop, buy his first stock and pay his staff. So Darren looked at European micro-credit - up to 25,000 euros for new business employing up to 10 people. It is money allocated through intermediaries for the European Investment Fund. "I went to Google and I typed in EU Funding for small businesses and what came up was a website, where I simply clicked into and found out there was funding available for EU businesses, which is great," Darren told us. "This led me to the Irish microfinance website first step, and I applied to get 25,000 euros, to start the business." Darren now employs eight people - four of them full-time - to run the shop and his internet site which has become a runaway success. Last year it turned over 800,000 euros and won various accolades, including the best internet site for a small business in Ireland in 2010 and 2011. "The website was the best investment for the company, and the return we have got ahead of the investment will be maybe 25 times what we have invested," Darren explained. "It's fantatstic. It's won multiple awards. And we've competed - a little small shop and a micro-finance startup has competed with major major multi-nationals in this field. We have become leader in the website field." The site offers 2,000 organic products - soon to become 3,000. Darren now has a registered trademark all over Europe, and soon hopes to expand his online activity into the UK. "The keys to success are to be able to secure finance for expansion, to be able to keep our website dynamic and innovative, and to expand our products within Europe," he said.

Forced to abandon his canvas when he fled Damascus at the outbreak of the war, the artist had to look for other mediums of expression - he opted for digital art, combining images of Western masterpieces with scenes of devastation across Syria. His work 'Freedom Graffiti' has made his a household name on the global art scene after it went viral. It is a representation of Gustav Klimt's 'The Kiss' superimposed over the bullet-ridden walls of a building in Damascus. "It talks about the line between tragedy and comedy. And how you can make art, in this case. So it talks about the hope that people can fight against war by making a love painting. I use this one (The Kiss) because it's very famous. So, as an artistic trick, you can get more attention," said the artist. Azzam's aim is to highlight the destruction of a country torn apart by war. He hopes his artwork will give people outside of Syria a deeper understanding of the suffering in his country. "I think that right now art doesn't make sense for people there, because death steals every moment in Syria. But as an artist, I am not a soldier, this is how I can fight," he says. Born in Damascus in 1980, Tammam Azzam now lives and works in Dubai. Find us on: Youtube http://bit.ly/zr3upY Facebook http://www.facebook.com/euronews.fans Twitter http://twitter.com/euronews

Although impoverished blacks in the region far outnumber their white counterparts, this camp is one of a growing number of townships populated mostly by Afrikaners - white South Africans. In the 19 years since the fall of apartheid, more and more whites are coming face to face with poverty and social meltdown. A controversial "affirmative action" policy sees blacks take precedence over whites on the job market, giving some people little choice but to move into tents and caravans in camps such as Coronation Park. Residents are frustrated at what they see as 'reverse apartheid.' "I'm sorry, it's racist. I'm not racist, but the blacks come first and then whites," said one retired resident of the camp. "And even highly qualified whites don't get a position in South Africa." Another man agreed, blaming affirmative action for their situation. "Apartheid was a problem. But, this is the only country in the world where the majority has got 'affirmative action'," he said. "America's got affirmative action, everywhere's got affirmation action, but this is the only country where the majority's got 'affirmative action'." Post-apartheid governments have struggled to achieve redistribution of wealth and economic growth, leading to an increase in poverty among the country's white population.

http://www.euronews.com/ More than three million people across the EU now work in eco-industries, producing nature-friendly goods and services. It is an increasingly competitive sector, buoyed by constant innovation. Let's see how scientists and manufacturers are joining forces to support this industrial evolution. Like in every big city, the air in London is increasingly polluted because of car fumes. One solution is to try am make all taxis emission-free by 2020. A small fleet of hydrogen-powered taxis is being tested as part of this European project. These black cabs running on fuel cells rather than combustion engines are much cleaner and quieter. "This vehicle drives entirely differently to anything I've driven before," says taxi driver Phil Davis. "It's much smoother, quieter, and it's a pleasure to drive. It's responsive, everything on it is electronic, which means less work for me to do. After getting out, after a few hours, it's like I've not been to work at all," he says. A tank-full of hydrogen gives the taxi up to 400 kilometres autonomy. The tests should give researchers a better idea of how to make the vehicles lighter and more efficient. "There's an enormous amount that we learn: the vehicle integration - how the different components talk to each other within the power chain; and how the vehicles operate: different taxi drivers, different driving style, different performance characteristics, and importantly, how they interface with hydrogen for refuelling," says Dennis Hayter, of Intelligent Energy, a London-based clean power systems company. Today, converting a car to hydrogen fuel increases its price five-fold - making it completely unaffordable. But at the current rate of research, it's hoped this technology can become more competitive in the next few years. "There are standards that will still need to be put in place for hydrogen vehicles, but part of projects like this helps to address those issues. As we move towards commercialisation of these vehicles in 2015, the required regulations will be addressed and in place," says Diana Raine, project coordinator for the HyTEC (Hydrogen Transport for European Cities) project. With a growing demand for clean fuels, governments and scientists need to get together to develop more efficient vehicles and better infrastructure. The European Commissions' in-house science service, the Joint Research Centre, based in northern Italy, works with a wide range of eco-industries. In the JRC's vehicle emissions laboratory, tests are being carried out on new equipment that reduces harmful engine exhausts. "We look into different options, we assess these technologies, and then we share our conclusions with the car-making industry, setting the new standard of the future for these cars," says Alois Krasenbrink, Head of the JRC's Sustainable Transport Unit. But is hydrogen a cleaner alternative if it relies on fossil fuels for its production? Are electric cars running on batteries made of imported, rare earth compounds sustainable? Scientists are looking not only at the final product but at its carbon footprint. "It is certainly true that on a local level, on an urban level, electric and hydrogen fuelled vehicles are cleaner," says Laura Lonza, scientific officer in vehicle and fuel innovation at the JRC. "But it's important to carry out research on the full energy footprint, not just on what happens inside the car," she adds. Laboratory analyses of combusting engine emissions can differ from real-life situations. This new mobile device, developed at the Joint Research Center, fits in a car trunk and works while the vehicle is on the road. "The device is connected to the exhaust pipe. The exhausts go to the fume meter. This allows us to measure directly the fume exhaust flow, and to extract a part of this flow which is then analysed," says Alois Krasenbrink. Mobile tools like this are able to provide much more accurate measurements. For example, these tests show that in certain real-life conditions, cars produce two to four times more emissions than in a lab. Let's now head to Germany for a look at another eco-industry undergoing major change: renewable electricity. We visit a former military airbase near Brandenburg that has just been transformed into Europe's largest photovoltaic plant. It produces enough energy for a medium-sized city, massively reducing CO2 emissions in this area.

euronews innovation - Milking plants
 
03:01
http://www.euronews.com/ A French company is growing fast as it exploits a technology to 'milk' precious products from plants. "We produce molecules from plants that otherwise would be very difficult to produce, and these molecules are very useful for cosmetics and pharmaceuticals," says the CEO of Plant Advanced Technologies Jean-Paul Fèvre. Plant Advanced Technologies, based in near Nancy, is a pioneer of what it calls 'plant milking technology'. The plants are grown without soil, and their roots are then 'milked' of precious molecules. The firm exploits the benefits of substances found within rare, protected and slow-growing plants. "The plants produce active substances in their roots naturally that help them to defend themselves against aggressors in their environment. We dip the roots into a solvent, which allows the roots to become more permeable, and bring out these high-value molecules," says PAT's reserach director Frédéric Bourgaud. PAT is further refining its know-how as part of an EU-wide research project. The scientists have identified a range of rare substances for use in medicine. "This is a Mexican plant that produces a molecule that's useful in treating osteoperosis in women. There we have two plants that naturally produce an anti-inflammatory, and there we have a carnivorous plant that should help us to produce molecules that are useful in treating certain cancers and a rare genetic disorder," explains Bourgaud. Swing open the store room doors and you will find hundreds of litres of natural anti-oxydants ready for delivery. Feeding the plants a lean diet of nutrients means they grow bigger roots, and produce more valuable molecules. "In a relatively limited amount of space we're able to produce many kilogrammes, many tens of kilogrammes of substances, which is totally in line with what the market demands," says Bourgaud. The test greenhouse is stacked with racks of unusual plants being grown and tested to see how they could be 'milked' for new medicines. There is plenty of scope for growth: "A great many molecules are yet to be discovered from rare and protected plants, or from those that grow slowly, so it's useful to have a procedure that does not destroy the plant itself," says Jean-Paul Fèvre.
