Germany and Denmark are planning to build a road and rail link between their two countries across a body of water called the Fehmarnbelt. One proposal is to construct a 19 kilometer long bridge but environmental activists oppose the five billion euro project.Environmental groups say the project will cause massive disruption to the Baltic Sea's ecosystem. They argue the proposed bridge's piers will affect the sea's water-exchange pattern, threatening species that live there in the process. Business leaders on the other hand support the project. They say it will provide a big stimulus to the region's economy. An alternative to the bridge design is a tunnel, which is both competitively priced compared to the bridge and, it's supporters say, would be kinder to the environment as well.
No me dedico a hacer vídeos para youtube, creo que se ve por la calidad del vídeo, la edición y mi horrible forma de hablar. Algún día aprenderé a hacer vídeos, pero hasta entonces habrá que conformarse con algo como esto. Espero que os guste.

Democratic schools place particular emphasis on children's right to self-determination. Like the famous Summerhill School in Britain, they promote anti-authoritarian educational methods which some consider controversial.Still, democratic schools say their brand of free schooling doesn't mean children aren't getting a good education. Here pupils of all ages learn together and what they study is centered on each child's own interests. The schoolchildren decide for themselves what, when and how they wish to learn.
It has been described as a hard knock for the idea on Europe without borders. After pressure from right wing populists Denmark has reintroduced controls on its German border.The measure is aimed primarily at travelers from Eastern Europe. The reason given for the controls is the need to combat rising criminality. But critics say that is just an excuse and the measure is aimed at keeping foreigners out of Denmark. The countries of the Schengen area in Europe are supposed to guarantee unhindered border traffic. Denmark joined the group ten years ago. Back then most of the border control infrastructure was dismantled. In future Denmark plans to use automatic scanners to check car number plates.
After ten years of right-wing rule, Social Democrat Helle Thorning-Schmidt is Denmark's new prime minister and set to steer the country into a new era. She replaces Liberal leader Lars Løkke Rasmussen, whose minority government was propped up by the far-right Danish People's party (DPP). Under this government, Denmark stepped up anti-immigration legislation and tightened border controls in a clear breach of the Schengen Agreement. But when Denmark assumes the rotating presidency of the EU Council early next year, it's expected to have shed its Europhobic stance.
Danes of foreign descent can breathe freely again. Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen,known for his hard-line immigration policies,is leaving the country to become NATO's new Secretary General. The new head of the government shares the surname Rasmussen with him,but they are not related,and,in contrast to his predecessor,Lars Løkke Rasmussen is considered a bon vivant and is probably the only western leader to have travelled in Afghanistan disguised as an Afghan. Still,whether the climate for foreigners in Denmark will actually improve under his leadership remains to be seen.
Forty years on the inhabitants of the Free State of Christiania have to make a choice: either they buy their properties or they abandon the legendary hippie republic.Denmark's highest court has awarded the state the complete right of use of the land. In 1971 thousands of young Danes squatted the abandoned barracks in the Christianshavn district and turned it into a center of alternative lifestyle. But recently the community has faced accusations of organized criminality. Police drug raids in an area notorious as pusher street led to clashes between officers and the squatters.
