World News

Conflict is flaring between Armenia and Azerbaijan, undermining regional stability. On Sunday the 27th of September, the historical conflict between the former Soviet republics, Armenia and Azerbaijan, flared up once again. The conflict raised concerns about the stability in the South Caucasus region, a corridor for pipelines carrying oil and gas to the world’s markets. The breakaway region inside Azerbaijan has been run by ethnic Armenians since 1991, when the region self-declared autonomy. Both countries have declared martial law, which prompted a flurry of diplomacy to reduce the tensions that threaten to destabilize an already fragile world order.

The New York Times obtained Donald Trump’s tax information. The records reveal large losses and years of tax avoidance, with the report coming in little over a month before the presidential election, prompting Mr. Trump to call it “fake news”. The President has paid just $750 in federal income tax, both in 2016, the year he ran for US presidency, and 2017, his first year in the White House. He paid no such taxes in 11 out of 18 years of tax records which were examined by the NYT. After the success of The Apprentice TV show, he did initially pay significant taxes – $95m over 18 years, which he later got back via a $72.9m federal tax refund. Mr. Trump’s lawyers argued that he enjoys total immunity while in office and that Congress has no valid justification to seek these records.

ECB to consider allowing inflation to exceed target, Lagarde says. Following a similar move by the Federal Reserve in late August, the European Central Bank has announced it will consider letting inflation overshoot the target after a period of slow price growth. The idea is likely to face opposition by some European policymakers.

The European Central Bank has also announced it is intensifying its work on a digital euro.

Belgium agrees on government, 16 months after election. The country has been led by a caretaker government and a minority coalition ever since elections in May 2019. Flemish Liberal Alexander De Croo is set to become the next prime minister.

Joe Biden and Donald Trump clash in chaotic presidential debate. President Donald Trump and Joe Biden clashed in the first presidential debate, described by many as “a joke” and “a sign of national shame”, on Thursday. The debate degenerated into an ugly spectacle, with Mr. Trump continuously interrupting the flow of conversation and Vice President Biden telling the President to “shut up”. The moderator, Chris Wallace of Fox News, appeared to lose control of the debate and frequently tried to mitigate the tension while the two candidates clashed fiercely. Fact checking by the New York Times, CNN and the Washington Post, among others, revealed a string of lies all tied up together to ensure the survival of the President’s campaign.

The EU launches legal action against the United Kingdom. The EU is suing the UK over plans to violate last year’s Brexit withdrawal agreement, which could lead to Britain being hauled before the European Court of Justice. Ursula von der Leyen, the European Commission president, said that Brussels had sent a “letter of formal notice” to the UK over Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s “internal market bill”. The letter is the first stage of formal EU “infringement proceedings”.

Trump’s Positive Coronavirus Test Upends Campaign in Final Stretch. President Trump announced on Friday that he had contracted the coronavirus. On his way to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, his campaign managers announced that his campaign events and those held by his family would be suspended. On the other hand, Mr. Biden disclosed he was tested negative for the coronavirus and that he would continue campaigning, with a trip to Michigan this Friday. The President’s announcement tipped the scales in favor of the Democrats, leaving Mr. Trump with little time to change the trajectory of the electoral race.

Notizie italiane

Reddito di cittadinanza. Il 30 settembre è scaduta la prima tranche di chi fece domanda nel 2019. Nella maggioranza si è aperto un dibattito sul futuro della misura, con il presidente del consiglio Conte che ha auspicato un rinnovamento caratterizzato da maggiori controlli e dall’introduzione di una “app lavoro”.

Confindustria, Bonomi rilancia un patto per l’Italia. In occasione della sua prima assemblea di Confindustria da presidente, Carlo Bonomi ha proposto un “patto per l’Italia” tra governo e patti sociali, incassando la disponibilità del governo. Obiettivo: risollevare il Paese dopo la crisi da Covid-19.

Giorgia Meloni è la nuova presidente del Partito dei conservatori e riformisti  europei (Ecr). È la prima italiana a guidare un partito europeo, succedendo al ceco Jan Zahradil al timone del partito della destra di governo euroscettica e antifederalista.

Scandalo in Vaticano sull’uso dei fondi della Santa Sede. Un saccheggio di 454 milioni di euro. Un’operazione che è arrivata perfino a mettere le mani sul conto riservato del Papa. È quello che, stando a quanto scrive Repubblica, è emerso dalle indagini dei magistrati vaticani iniziate nell’estate 2019 per far luce sull’acquisto del palazzo di lusso londinese di Sloane Avenue. La notizia arriva qualche giorno prima della pubblicazione della nuova enciclica di Papa Francesco, “Fratelli tutti”.

Cosa comporta la proroga dello stato di emergenza Covid. Il Governo ha chiesto la proroga per lo stato di emergenza per il covid-19. Lo ha ufficializzato negli scorsi giorni Giuseppe Conte. Ciò implica innanzitutto la possibilità di agire in deroga su alcuni aspetti della vita pubblica tramite i Dpcm, la possibilità per i dipendenti pubblici e privati di continuare a lavorare in modalità smart e l’eventuale emanazione di eventuali ordinanze da parte delle Regioni, secondo le linee guida governative. Inoltre, qualora la proroga dovesse essere accettata, continueranno il monitoraggio settimanale da parte del Ministero della Salute e le restrizioni sui viaggi.

Milano, il bando per le case popolari che discrimina gli immigrati: scontro regione comune. Oggetto dell’ultima contesa tra Comune di Milano e Regione Lombardia è il recente bando di assegnazione delle case popolari, che chiede ai cittadini stranieri di produrre un documento che attesti l’assenza di case di proprietà nella propria Patria. Tale richiesta è stata considerata illegale da parte dei giudici, a causa dell’impossibilità per molti Paesi di produrre questo documento, o comunque di farlo pervenire ai diretti interessati. Per adesso, a Milano ci si rifà all’ordinanza del tribunale che ha permesso di non applicare tale punto del bando giudicato “discriminatorio”.

Quest’anno la Milano Design City sarà rivoluzionaria e sostenibile. L’edizione 2020 della Milano Design City è particolarmente elettrizzante e concentrata soprattutto sulla rivoluzione sostenibile della mobilità urbana. Una rivoluzione iniziata tempo fa con il car sharing e continuata fino ad oggi con i monopattini elettrici, che ha portato alla cosiddetta “svolta elettrica” per mezzi pubblici, scooter e automobili.

Ora basta!”: a Milano la manifestazione contro l’omobitransfobia con il lancio di Tiziano Ferro e Iacopo Melio. È fissata per il 10 ottobre alle 15 la manifestazione “Ora basta! – Violenza e discriminazione non sono un’opinione”. La mobilitazione pacifica è stata lanciata dai Sentinelli di Milano in collaborazione con altre associazioni. Tra gli ospiti famosi troviamo personalità del calibro di Tiziano Ferro e Iacopo Melio.

Mose, dopo 40 anni Venezia batte l’alta marea. Sabato mattina, quaranta anni dopo la decisione di puntare sulle dighe mobili, le paratie del Mose si sono infine sollevate. E tra il sollievo di sostenitori e scettici hanno lasciato Venezia all’asciutto. Eppure, i tempi potrebbero non essere del tutto maturi per  poter definire l’opera un successo.
