Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp wants the Premier League to do more to help English teams in Europe after seeing the Dutch domestic schedule ripped up to aid Ajax. Holland’s football association, the KNVB, has postponed the entire final round of Eredivisie games for two-and-a-half weeks to give the leaders extra time to prepare for the first leg of their Champions League semi-final against Tottenham on April 30. The KNVB made their move because Ajax were scheduled to round off their league campaign against De Graafschap just two days before facing Tottenham – and felt that it could give the leaders an unfair advantage just to move their game.
BERLIN — German weekly Der Spiegel says the Tunisian man who carried out a deadly truck attack on a Berlin Christmas market in 2016 was part of a Europe-wide network of Islamic extremists. Spiegel reported Friday that Anis Amri , who died in a shootout with Italian police days after the rampage, had contacts to Islamic State supporters including extremists tied to the 2015 attacks in Paris. It cited documents from the German Federal Prosecutors Office and federal police drawing on recordings made of prison conversations involving Frenchman Clement Baur, who was arrested in 2017 for planning an attack during the country's presidential election. According to the report, Baur said Amri was part

We've known for a while now that Google offered Android users in Europe a different experience than international customers, and that's because the European Union really wants Google to behave a lot less like a monopoly than before. Google lost three major anti-trust cases in the region, including one that concerns Android.The European Commission slapped Google with three multi-billion fines in each case, which Google has contested. But the company agreed to make changes to its business models, and the changes also concern its mobile operating system. We know now what changes are in place for Android in Europe.Google explained in a new blog post on the matter that Android users in Europe will get search app and browser options, and showed the world what those prompts will look like.The new screens will be shown the first time a user opens Google Play after receiving an update. We're looking at two screens, one for search and one for browsers, as follows below.Each screen will present the user five apps, including the ones that are installed. The apps that are not installed will show up based on their popularity, but they'll show up in a randomized order.A third screen will be shown to users when they install a search app. Google will ask whether they want to change Chrome's default search engine the next time they open the browser.These screens will show up on both existing and new Android phones in Europe in the coming weeks, Google explained, and their implementation will "evolve" over time.
Rocket League has issued a patch removing loot boxes in two countries, in order to abide by local laws forbidding the practice. With the 1.61 patch, players in both Belgium and the Netherlands are no longer able to open crates with earned keys "due to government regulations." Last year in response to concerns raised by games like Star Wars Battlefront 2, both countries declared that loot boxes constitute gambling and are therefore illegal. The governments of the countries determined that the practice could entice minors to gamble. In January, EA removed FIFA Points in Belgium for the same reason. Some countries have outlawed the practice, but it's far from settled across the board. New Zealand

If it doesn't come from a cow it shouldn't be called milk? That's what the dairy industry wants the government to decide. Dairy producers want the Food and Drug Administration to limit the use of that term to dairy products. It would ban nut or plant-based products from using the term "milk" in their labeling. “You have a wild west atmosphere where someone can take a nut add a bunch of water to it and chemicals and call it milk,” Alan Bjerga of the National Milk Producers Federation, said. “No one's coming home with almond milk and saying 'oh whoops, I thought it was from a cow,” Ken Forsberg of The Good Food Institute countered. “That's not the nutritional profile of milk that's not what dairy
Ashley Cooper | Hulton Archive | Getty Images The wind industry invested 26.7 billion euros ($30.05 billion) in new European wind farms in 2018, according to a new report from industry body WindEurope. The investment is similar to recent years but, because of cost reductions, it will finance a record 16.7 gigawatts (GW) in new capacity, WindEurope said. It added that 1 megawatt (MW) of new onshore wind capacity now needed 1.4 million euros in capital expenditure, down from 2 million euros in 2015. In the offshore sector, 1 MW of capacity needs 2.5 million euros compared to 4.5 million euros in 2015. In total, the wind industry invested 65 billion euros in Europe last year, according to the Financing

Users of Android devices in Europe will be able to choose rival browsers and search engines from five options starting on Thursday, a senior Google executive said, as the company tries to quell EU antitrust concerns and stave off fresh penalties. Hit with a record 4.34 billion euro fine last year for using the market power of its mobile software to block rivals in areas such as internet browsing, Alphabet unit Google was also ordered to come up with a proposal to give its rivals a fair chance. The European Commission said Google had an unfair advantage by pre-installing its Chrome browser and Google search app on Android smartphones and notebooks.
