Likely Wrong Information: Certificate of International Vaccination accepted

Unfortunately, we were unable to verify that the international vaccination pass should generally be accepted as proof of vaccination in Austria. In any case, there was no mention of this in the main news, again only about the electronic “green vaccination card” with QR code, which represents a serious data security risk. The proof is initially valid 22 days after the first vaccination and six months after the second. Common acceptance of the international vaccination certificate would be strongly advised. The document has so far been used, for example, on a trip to Brazil to the Amazon to prove a yellow fever vaccination.

Austria: At the planned restaurant openings in mid-May, the vaccination pass (human readable paper) will be accepted as status 22 days after the first vaccination for one year even without a second vaccination.

SAT solvers are programs to solve logical expressions / propositional formulae that are normally given in conjunctive normal form. They are used in hardware, software verification and artificial intelligence. With the verification of software it should one day be possible to automatically discover security vulnerabilities in programs. The SAT solver is characterized by the fact that it can not only find one solution, but all of them in compressed form. The epilogue also tells of the terror of Western secret services (point 6).

In the last decade the Asian Development Bank has spent nearly $10 billion financing coal, gas, and oil projects in Asia. Now it is revising its energy policy. Two years ago the European Investment Bank cut ties with the fossil fuels industry, and the UK and US have since announced commitments to phase out financial support for fossil fuels abroad. The ADB needs to change course. It is currently ramping up its financing of fossil gas projects such as the controversial Turkmenistan – Afghanistan – Pakistan – India (TAPI) gas pipeline or coal power projects in Bangladesh.

On March 27, 2021, the Transparency Act, a requirement of the Glyphosphate EBI, finally came into force. Now, no more secret studies can be used for the approval of pesticides. One ought at all to demand that only publicly financed studies may be used, because the results of industrial studies mostly depend on the financier. Industrial studies are often designed in such a way that a result about possible harmfulness cannot be obtained, for example by spraying the control fields with other harmful pesticides. At least a published study cannot make scientifically easily refutable claims.
