--- Quote ---The European Union is secretly developing a "remote stopping" device to be fitted to all cars that would allow the police to disable vehicles at the flick of a switch from a control room.

Confidential documents from a committee of senior EU police officers, who hold their meetings in secret, have set out a plan entitled "remote stopping vehicles" as part of wider law enforcement surveillance and tracking measures.

--- Quote ---A British company has been accused of making “disgusting amounts of money” from a controversial scheme by Malta to sell European Union passports to tycoons and celebrities ranging from a former Formula One world champion to a Chinese billionaire.

Henley & Partners, a private company registered in Jersey which specialises in “citizenship solutions”, stands to make at least €60m (£49m) from its role as the designer and principal contractor for the scheme, which will sell passports for €1.15m a piece.

--- Quote ---If you use the Gmail app on your iPhone or iPad, it might be sensible to check your Trash and Spam folders before Valentine’s Day.

That’s not because there might be an ecard waiting for you from a secret admirer, but due to Google accidentally deleting or marking as spam some users’ messages.

--- Quote ---The population of stray animals in Greece is estimated at 3 million and the Panhellenic Animal Welfare and Environment Federation is requesting measures for animal adoptions in order to reduce the number of animals in the streets of the country. The Federation, as GreekReporter website informs, also accuses the Greek Ministry of Rural Development and Food of showing indifference on the issue.

--- Quote ---The word “fresh” will be taken off pasteurized milk packaging as part of market changes being promoted by the Development Ministry in line with recommendations from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

The Agricultural Development Ministry is against the proposal, fearing a price hike. However, it has not yet tabled an alternative proposal that would satisfy the country’s creditors, who are putting pressure in favor of opening up the dairy market.
