20 times stronger than diamond, 200 stronger than steel and six times lighter. Graphene truly is the new "wonder material".

Researchers of the AMBER centre in Dublin have developed a new process to mass produce graphene-based material. The method – which promises to be simple and affordable – could be used by industries for applications such as: high speed, transparent and even flexible and printable consumer electronics or/and rapidly rechargeable batteries for portable devices and electric cars.

mHealth is just one of the benefits of a #ConnectedContinent – helping patients, doctors and carers take control, wherever they are. From simple apps which help you stick to your exercise regime – to monitoring tools for those on kidney dialysis.The EU has already invested over €100 million, with about €95 million up for grabs over the next two years. And we are now consulting on how best to unlock the huge potential of mobile healthcare.

And this is all delivered, equitably, across class and ethnic lines? Not likely.

A step closer to our aim of an 80% reduction in use of lightweight plastic bags in Europe today when the European Parliament voted on its report on the Commission's proposal.

The huge and growing consumption rates of plastic bags –100 billion bags per year in the EU alone – demonstrates a reckless waste of resources; plastic bags are a symbol of our throw-away society and unsustainable lifestyles. We use them for a few minutes, but their legacy lasts for hundreds of years, often as harmful microscopic particles that are damaging the environment worldwide, especially the marine environment. In the North Sea, the stomachs of 94 % of all birds contain plastic.

"Make war not only unthinkable but materially impossible" Ever heard of the European Coal and Steel Community? It's the forerunner of the EU, established 63 years ago by Belgium, France, West Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, who signed the Treaty of Paris.

Seen as the solution to prevent further war between Germany and France, the aim of the ECSC was, in the words of Robert Schuman, to "make war not only unthinkable but materially impossible" which was to be achieved by regional integration, of which this Community was the first step.

I know definitions for a lot of forms of tyrannies +Jeremy Spencer, I'm not sure that they fit your own twisted representations. The regime your nice monarchy and friends installed in France in 1815 was a very sweet example of tyranny. And we had to get a rid by ourselves.
The difference of this regime with the previous (Napoleon) was that Napoleon was using his abusive power against your interests, while Louis XVIII oppressed only the French.
What happens in Great Britain today is mainly the fault of the idiotic ideology of your own british governments. So watch your representatives wherever they are and stop blaming each other for your problems.

As a European citizen you benefit from freedom of movement, the world’s biggest #economy, #healthcare in any EU country — things we often take for granted. But it is also the everyday things that make a difference, like being able to send back faulty goods ordered online, low roaming costs, or compensation for cancelled flights.

Many thanks to all of you for your comments! Right guess, it is from Cyprus and it represents a Mosaic from Eustolios House, Kourion. The Eustolios House was destroyed in 365 AD when a large earthquake hit Cyprus. It was then rebuilt and used as a large home or a public building from the 4th to the 7th century. The inscriptions and mosaics in the building combine pagan and Christian themes. The young woman here is holding a measuring stick for a Roman foot and is labeled as KTICIC, short for the Founding Spirit or the Creation.

Gabriel García Márquez was a voice of Latin America who became a voice of our world. His imagination has made us richer, and his passing away makes us poorer. His work will endure.

Our sincere condolences to his family

Introduction
The Commission's job is to represent and uphold the interests of the EU as a whole. It is headed by 28 Commissioners, 1 per country.

Mission
The Commission is independent of national governments. Its job is to represent and uphold the interests of the EU as a whole.

Description
The European Commission (EC) is the 'engine room' of the EU. It is one of 3 main EU institutions; the other two are the European Parliament (EP) and the Council (of the European Union).

The Commission prepares legislation for adoption by the Council (representing the member countries) and the Parliament (representing the citizens).

It administers the budget and the policy programmes (Agriculture, Fisheries, Research etc.) in cooperation with authorities in the member countries. The EC also services the 27 EU Commissioners.

Visit http://www.europa.eu/ if you want to learn more about the EU, or call the free service number 00 800 6789 10 11 from anywhere in the EU, they speak all 23 official languages.
