    Focus On Europe [#3146] National Sport: Subway Fare-Dodging Fare-dodging is a problem across Europe. It's estimated that transportation authorities in many European cities lose millions of euros in fares each year. Though cities are raising fines, this seems to be doing little to stop the scofflaws. In Paris, fare-dodging has reached the level of sport. The details:
    FRANCE: A NEW RECORD IN FARE-DODGING - Fare-dodging is France's new national sport. Some fare-dodgers have even banded together to create a kind of insurance fund to cover the fines if they're caught. Many in France have lax attitudes toward buying tickets for public transport. There's even a famous photo of former president Jacques Chirac jumping over a subway turnstile many years ago. Meanwhile, some cash-strapped university students are paying seven euros each month into a fund that will cover fines rather than shell out for a subway pass. Fare-dodging is estimated to cost France's state-owned railway system around 300 million euros a year; for Paris's public transport system, it's a record 100 million.
    BULGARIA: A WALL TO WARD OFF REFUGEES - Bulgaria has announced plans to build a thirty-kilometer-long wall along the border to Turkey in order to stem the influx of Syrian refugees. Belgrade says the wall will force the refugees to enter the country through the border checkpoint at Svilengrad, where they will be officially registered. The wall is to be built near Elhovo, where most of the Syrian refugees are entering Bulgaria illegally. It's estimated the wall will cost 2.5 million euros. Several thousand asylum-seekers from Syria are already living in camps in Bulgaria under extremely poor conditions.
    ROMANIA: REVIVING THE ART OF WINE-MAKING - Winemaking is a tradition that goes back thousands years in Romania. At various times in the past, up to 200,000 hectares of land in the region have been devoted to grape-growing. Today, pioneering young vintners in places like the Tarnava valley of Transylvania are trying to revive that tradition. European Union membership has been a boon for Romanian vintners. It's opened new markets and brought capital into the area. But local winemakers still face many obstacles, among them local bureaucrats, who often demand bribes in exchange for approving export licenses and awarding EU support and subsidies.
    SPAIN: FARMERS TAKE ON AN EPIDEMIC OF THEFT - From fruit and vegetables to farming equipment - on farms in Spain, everything that's not nailed down is liable to be stolen. Many farmers have taken to sleeping on their fields to try to protect their property. Last year, nearly 20,000 thefts were reported on Spanish farms, and the thieves are growing ever bolder. Many work in gangs that are said to come from Eastern Europe, and they've built up criminal networks to fence the stolen goods. Local farmers are at their wit's end. The police generally don't investigate smaller thefts and when they do step in, it's often too late to catch the culprit. More and more farmers are now joining forces to patrol their land.

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

      (DT54.1 thru 54.5) Assuming that the weather and road conditions permit, we plan to do a bit of maintenance on our KQEH transmitter the morning of Friday 12/05… hopefully 10am-11am-ish, but could be a bit later. Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
