Polish politicians should stop stigmatising LGBTI people, the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights said in a memorandum published on Thursday, adding that such behaviour risked legitimising homophobic violence. Poland's ruling nationalist Law and Justice (PiS) party made battling what it calls "LGBT ideology" a key plank of election campaigns in 2019 and 2020 in a bid to rally core religious conservative voters. "The Commissioner is deeply concerned about the propagation of negative and inflammatory homophobic narratives by many public officials in Poland, including people in the highest ranks of government," the memorandum by Dunja Mijatovic said.
Germany's second lockdown to contain the COVID-19 pandemic pushed the services sector deeper into recession in November, bringing overall private sector activity in Europe's largest economy to a near halt, a survey showed on Thursday. Restaurants, bars, hotels, gyms and entertainment venues have been closed since Nov. 2 to contain an aggressive second wave of coronavirus infections.

Dublin, Dec. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Edge Computing - Global Market Trajectory & Analytics" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. As the World Searches for a Solution to Latency in IoT Devices, Edge Computing Will Receive a 27.7% Growth BoostThe global market for Edge Computing is expected to reach US$18.7 billion by the year 2027, trailing a post COVID-19 CAGR of 27.7% over the analysis period 2020 through 2027. The IoT ecosystem is exploding with billions of self-aware devices expected to be connected to the edge of networks by 2030. The Internet of Things (IoT) devices have gained significant traction in the recent years and are likely to witness increasing penetration in the coming years. While organizations and end-users focus on IoT devices, network connectivity intended to facilitate their communication receives relatively little attention. Public cloud and public Internet architectures are often unable to host critical, time-sensitive communications. Use of private edge cloud networks for handling edge computing workloads and connecting to IoT devices is growing in popularity as it allows organizations to accelerate data processing and analysis. The approach reduces latency and improves performance as well as increasing security levels. Private edge cloud networks are highly effective performance-sensitive applications, making them an ideal choice for edge computing and IoT devices. In addition to allowing data processing closer to a device to eliminate the requirement of data transfer to the cloud, the strategy isolates communication from the public Internet to ensure faster availability of critical information. Moreover, the ability of private edge cloud networks to isolate IoT communication from public Internet allows faster identification and mitigation of various attack types including distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. With the focus now squarely on latency issues, edge computing is rapidly emerging as a technology innovation that can be widely adopted across industries. Some of key benefits of using intelligent edge include capability for quick decision making and low latency.Edge meets local computing requirements as data is processed in micro-data centers. On-site data processing helps to eliminate latency and address network and connectivity challenges. IoT devices form the backbone of edge computing as they enable data analysis and processing on the edge. However, edge offers benefits for traditional applications as well. Edge computing can be adopted at close proximity to data source with dedicated units for specific functions in a device. Every edge computing unit would have dedicated storage, computer and network system. Load balancing, networking, routing, switching, as well as security would be handled by the devices. The devices together form a network which processes data from various sources. Event processing engines would analyze the data points to determine data streaming route. Key Topics Covered: I.

TomTom-Backed EU Initiative Delivers Road Safety Data Ecosystem TomTom-Backed EU Initiative Delivers Road Safety Data Ecosystem Reciprocal vehicle, community and infrastructure data exchange to help power TomTom safety services AMSTERDAM, Dec. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Location technology specialist, TomTom (TOM2), today announced that its collaboration with the European Commission-backed Data for Road Safety initiative has resulted in a ready-to-deploy system to warn drivers about dangerous driving conditions. Automakers, Tier 1 suppliers, road traffic authorities, EU member states and location technology providers, partnered on a proof of concept (POC) between June and October 2020. They have now signed a multi-party agreement (MPA) committing to the long-term, reciprocal exchange of data in order to make roads safer. Using the latest connected car technologies, vehicles can detect and warn occupants about dangerous road conditions – for example, when roads are slippery. These warnings can also be beneficial to other drivers, automated-driving vehicles and road operators. In the POC, vehicle-generated data, along with infrastructure information, was shared using a decentralized data collaboration architecture. TomTom played a critical role by taking these datasets, processing them, and delivering them back to other vehicles via its live Traffic services, and to road authorities. Ralf-Peter Schäfer, VP Traffic and Travel, TomTom, said: “Accidents and other safety-critical events happen fast, making it a real challenge to warn drivers in time. With this safety-focused collaboration, we’ve been able to prove that a reciprocal exchange of data can power services that help solve this issue – delivering comprehensive hazard notifications to drivers, faster than ever before.” TomTom has quickly adopted the available information which will be integrated in its consumer and in-vehicle applications to make sure it benefits as many drivers possible. In addition, the available data will be one of the sources used to power the newly developed Hazard Warnings service which will be in the first road vehicles in 2021. TomTom Hazard Warnings features an industry-first low-latency push service that sends detected hazard alerts to a vehicle in under five seconds. Join our dedicated Hazard Warnings webinar on 10 December at 4pm CET to learn more about how TomTom is increasing safety for the road ahead. #FutureOfDriving #MappingaSaferFuture Notes to editors Data for Road Safety Ecosystem includes the following organizations: EU member states and road authorities: Austria, ASFINAG; Belgium, Flanders AWV; England - Highways England; Finland Traffic Management Finland Ltd & Intelligent Traffic Management Finland Ltd; Germany, Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure; Luxembourg, Ministry of the Economy; Spain (Ministry of Home Affairs, Dirección General de Tráfico – DGT) and The Netherlands, Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management; Location technology providers: HERE Europe B.V. and TomTom Traffic B.V.
