In search of surrogates, foreign couples descend on Ukraine - BBC News
Foreign couples have been coming to this corner of Europe in droves since 2015, when surrogacy hotspots in Asia began closing their industries one-by-one, amid reports of exploitation. Barred from India, Nepal and Thailand, they turned to Ukraine, one of the few places left where surrogacy can still be arranged at a fraction of what it costs in the US.

"We have so many childless couples coming to our country - it's like a conveyor belt," says Ana, who asked for her identity to be protected.

When she was 21, and after some years of hotel work, Ana finally decided to become a surrogate. By then she had a daughter and realised she was eligible. Under Ukrainian law, a surrogate must have a child of their own before carrying someone else's. If you have your own child, you are less likely to become attached to the one you must give away, those who recruit the women say. [...] Europe's capital of surrogacy
Demand for surrogacy in Ukraine "has increased probably 1000% in the last two years alone," says Sam Everingham of Families Through Surrogacy, a Sydney-based charity that advises would-be parents.

The country, he adds, "has found itself almost accidentally as one of the handful of nation states" which allow surrogacy tourism.

Winter Olympic Snub Casts Shadow on Elite Sport in Germany - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"The Olympics are too big and too expensive, and decisions about them are made from the outside. The athletes and officials may not care that it's the general public that has to pay. But the general public definitely cares." Winter Olympics are an expensive and risky undertaking. In 2006, in Turin, the Olympics proved a financial disaster, with the region ultimately having to pick up the tab for a budget shortfall of €25 million. Olympic planners in Vancouver, in 2010, were only able to narrowly stay within their budget because the province of British Columbia, the Canadian government and the IOC all chipped in with extra financial support. [...] Olympics "no" vote in Bavaria shocking, because he believes it amounts to "an ominous message" that people simply feel elite sports are "no longer important."

"Wenn Bach IOC-Chef wird, hätte das zumindest den großen Vorteil, dass wir dann einen neuen DOSB-Boss bekommen", hatte Leichtathletik-Star Robert Harting schon vor Monaten geätzt. Tatsächlich war Bach in seinem Amt wenig präsent, zu sehr mit seinen internationalen Ambitionen befasst. Bach betrachtete sein Amt als Machtbasis, um seine IOC-Ziele zu verfolgen. Das wird sich ändern. Der neue Chef des DOSB wird sich wieder mehr um den deutschen Sport kümmern. Arbeit wartet genug.

The looming zoonotic danger – Global Public Square - Blogs

We've seen an unprecedented rise in infectious diseases in recent decades, 75 percent of which are “zoonotic,” meaning they come from animals. About 300 new animal-to-human diseases have emerged in the last 60 years.

This summer, the International Livestock Research Institute released a report estimating that zoonotic diseases cause 2.5 billion cases of human illness each year and 2.7 million human deaths worldwide. Most of these illnesses and deaths are caused by diseases spread from farm animals.

Meanwhile, we’ve seen a dramatic spike in pork and poultry production. Tens to hundreds of thousands of caged animals under a single roof allow for zoonotic diseases to emerge, amplify and spread. Of all the emerging threats, the greatest concern is influenza, the only known virus with the potential to infect millions of people within months.

Bundesbank-Hilfe bei lgeschft: Das Rtsel um dendeutschen Iran-Deal - SPIEGEL ONLINE - Nachrichten - Politik
Berlin - Das umstrittene Engagement der Bundesbank bei einem Ölgeschäft zwischen Iran und Indien hat womöglich eine größere politische Brisanz als bisher bekannt. Wie es in Regierungskreisen in Berlin heißt, soll der Deal im Zusammenhang mit der Freilassung zweier Reporter der "Bild am Sonntag" aus iranischer Haft im Februar dieses Jahres stehen. Demnach soll die Bundesregierung die Hilfe der deutschen Zentralbank bei der iranisch-indischen Transaktion im Gegenzug für die Freilassung der beiden Deutschen gebilligt haben.
