German Chancellor Angela Merkel has been Europe's main target of fake news articles, the majority of them directed at her open-door policy toward refugees fleeing conflicts in the Middle East, said a source close to the matter, citing information from an internal EU working group. The disinformation campaign against the chancellor in the run-up to the 2017 parliamentary elections resembles those made by Russian entities, the unnamed source added, although the information could not be independently verified.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Jan. 23 that openness, not populism, polarization or isolation, was the answer to the world's challenges of globalization and digitalization. I think that, a quarter of a century after German unification, after the end of the Cold War, a new historical era will perhaps be replaced by another one, Merkel said in a speech to church leaders in Wuerzburg.

In 2002, The Times writer David Rowan interviewed journalists who had swallowed the Pez story. "If they lied to me…then I'm angry," said James Gleick. "I'm embarrassed." A Salon writer went even further: "I feel misled, duped, embarrassed, stupid, and angry," she said. In response, eBay had the chutzpah to blame journalists for the lie. Nobody was ever all that interested in covering the company, explained a spokesperson, until they heard "the Pez angle." Fake News 101: blame the audience!

Eccelstone stands down after nearly 40 years as F1's boss Longstanding boss of Formula 1 Ecclestone has departed following a takeover of the sport by Liberty Media Bernie Eccelstone is no longer the boss of Formula 1 following the completion of a takeover of the sport. He had earlier told German magazine Auto, Motor und Sport, "I am simply gone. It's official. I am no longer the leader of the company." The 86-year-old has been F1’s chief executive for 39 years. His departure comes close to four months after F1’s acquisition by Liberty Media for $8.4 billion . Reports suggest he was forced from the helm by the American company. Ecclestone has now assumed the role of chairman emeritus where he will act as an adviser to the board. The leading role has been filled by Chase Carey (pictured below), who is vice chairman of the 21st Century Fox media conglomerate.

(The banner image is from this German YouTube video where a Tesla rep in the back seat tells the reporter that he can take his hands off the wheel. There may be mixed signals here.) There are other details that make the report worth reading if, like us, you would like to see some more data about how self-driving cars actually perform on the road. On one hand, Tesla's Autosteer function seems to have reduced the rate at which their cars got into crashes. On the other, increasing use of the driving assistance functions comes with an increase driver inattention for durations of three seconds or longer. People simply think that the Autopilot should do more than it actually does. Per the report, this problem of driver misuse in the context of semi-autonomous vehicles is an emerging issue. Whether technology will improve fast enough to protect us from ourselves is an open question. [via Popular Science ]. Filed under: car hacks , news

In one of her first major appearances of the election year, German Chancellor Angela Merkel outlined her vision for refugee and asylum policy in a speech in Wuerzburg, Monday. Angela Merkel, German Chancellor (German): "And now we are facing a difficult task, but we need to carry out this task. We are a state of law, and in a state of law help and support is given to those who need help. But in order to be able to continue doing so further, we need to say to those who after constitutional proceedings have not been allowed right of residence, that they need to leave our country again. That belongs to the regulation and governing of the process as well. We have learnt together in the politics, that the faster we decide, the better it is for the people concerned. Angela Merkel, German Chancellor (German): "Those who have the right to stay, at least for a designated period of time, the big task is the integration.

"He could not continue the game," Puel said. "We will see for the next games. I don't know if we can recover him. He took a big kick and we will see if we can recover him for this game. We will see in the morning [Monday]. I hope we can have Virgil of course because he is our captain and he's an important player." Van Dijk 's absence would be boost for Liverpool's attack, and the hosts must score or face elimination. Underfire goalkeeper Loris Karius was Klopp 's saviour at St. Mary's Stadium, stopping Southampton from gaining a substantial advantage before the second leg. Klopp has encouraged home fans to propel their team to victory at Anfield and has urged the Kop to create a special atmosphere to intimidate the visiting side. Speaking ahead of the second leg, the German admitted his team should have given a better account of themselves on the south coast, per Stuart Ballard of the Express : They are a football playing side, against us they always defended pretty deep.

The ongoing talks in Astana are "only an intermediate step" in finding lasting peace for Syria, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said at a press statement in Berlin, Monday. SOT, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, German Foreign Minister (German): "The way I see it, is that the ongoing talks in Astana are an intermediate step. You will see that Astana is mostly handling matters of military collaboration between Turkey, Russia, Iran and others who are involved, who engaged in the Syrian war. We are present in Astana as observers and are following it. But it can only be an intermediate step because the political solution for Syria can to my opinion only be found in Geneva in the attendance of the international support group. Because a continuous peace for Syria, a new political perspective for Syria, can only be found if the regional actors, who played a role as neighbours, are also at the table.

German Federal Supreme Court officially ruled that the virus causing measles does not exist, therefore the entire disease does not exist, too. According to the judgement by the Supreme Court, the measles vaccination may have been injected into millions of unsuspecting German citizens for sinister reasons. The First Civil Senate of the BGH has confirmed the judgment by the Higher Regional Court of Stuttgart (OLG) of the 16 February 2016. The sum of €100,000 which I had offered as a reward for scientific proof of the existence of the alleged measles virus does not have to be paid to the plaintiff. The plaintiff also was ordered to bear all procedural costs.

Norman Finkelstein has been the focus of an international campaign to once again stop him from teaching. It didn't work, so far anyway. Today he gave a lecture titledGaza; an inquest into its martyrdom” at the Max Planck Institute in Halle, Germany, during a two-week residency there. This afternoon, Finkelstein reported: It's over. The workshop lasted five hours. It was normal, just as if I were anywhere else in the world. Hopefully, it will herald the new normal in Germany, which would be good for Truth, good for Justice, and good for Palestine. The Jerusalem Post describes pressure on the Max Planck Institute to withdraw the invitation, including from Florida Senator Marco Rubio: “It’s shameful that the Max Planck Institute will give a platform to the anti-Israel author Norman Finkelstein, a supporter of the terrorist group Hezbollah,” Senator Rubio (R-FL) told The Jerusalem Post .

LOS ANGELES: Bernie Ecclestone's long reign as Formula One's ringmaster came to an end Monday as Liberty Media completed its multi-billion-dollar takeover of motorsport's most prestigious brand. Colorado-based Liberty confirmed in a statement that American Chase Carey had been appointed chairman and chief executive of F1, with Ecclestone moving into an advisory role as "chairman emeritus". Ecclestone, 86, had already signalled the end of his near 40-year reign as head of Formula One in comments to German magazine Auto Motor und Sport earlier Monday. "I was dismissed today," Ecclestone told the magazine. "I no longer run the company. My position has been taken by Chase Carey," he said. He said his new chairman emeritus role was "a kind of honorary president" position, but added: "I have this title without knowing what it means." Ecclestone, a former car salesman who transformed F1 into a multi-billion dollar business, was initially reported to be staying on after news of the Liberty deal emerged last year.
