EU closes borders for 30 days to curb coronavirus spread


European Union

The European Union has introduced a travel ban that prohibits most foreigners from entering the bloc for 30 days to discourage the spread of the new coronavirus.

Key points:

  • The travel ban exempts long-term EU residents, diplomats, some healthcare and transport workers
  • Angela Merkel said citizens of Switzerland, Liechtenstein, the UK and Norway were exempt
  • 17 people die in a Madrid nursing home

EU leaders agreed on Tuesday (local time) to shut down the 27-nation bloc’s external borders immediately and to set up fast-track transport lanes to keep vital medical equipment, food and goods flowing smoothly.

As the virus case count in Europe climbed to more than 60,000 and with more than 2,700 people dead, nervous national governments have introduced quick-fix measures such as partial border closures and quarantines with little consultation.

“We reaffirmed the need to work together and do everything necessary to tackle the crisis and its consequences,” European Council President Charles Michel told reporters.

He said the 27 EU countries agreed to impose border restrictions on tourism and non-essential business “as fast as possible”.

The plan exempts long-term EU residents, diplomats, and some healthcare and transport workers.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said her proposal for the restrictions “got a lot of support by the member states. It’s up to them now to implement. They said they will immediately do that.”

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the leaders agreed in a conference call to an entry ban with “very, very limited exceptions”, and that her country would start implementing it immediately.

Ms Merkel said citizens of Switzerland, Liechtenstein, the United Kingdom and Norway were exempt.

The EU leaders also agreed to coordinate the repatriation of EU citizens stranded outside the bloc, she said.

Ms Von der Leyen said they also backed a proposal to set up “green lanes” for trucks and other priority vehicles aimed at beating the traffic jams that have formed around crossing points on internal borders, where no ID or vehicle checks were required just days ago.

“We are ready to do everything that is required. We shall not hesitate to take additional measures as the situation evolves,” she told reporters.

17 die in Madrid nursing home

In its latest update, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control said that 61,098 cases of the new coronavirus have now been reported in Europe and that 2,740 people have died, the overwhelming majority in Italy.

Along with Italy, Spain and now France have imposed lockdowns, confining citizens to their homes except for urgent business like buying food or heading to any hospital that might still have the capacity to treat them.

City authorities in Madrid said at least 17 people from a nursing home in the Spanish capital have died in the past five days.

The Spanish Government reported 182 new fatalities in its latest update, bringing the total to 491 and making Spain the country with the world’s fastest-rising death toll after Italy.

The number of people infected rose to 11,178.

Your questions on coronavirus answered:

Meanwhile, nine countries have informed the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, that they’ve reintroduced ID checks inside Europe’s passport-free Schengen Area.

Among them are Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Poland, which all took unilateral action to halt the influx of migrants in 2015.

As the EU tackles the coronavirus outbreak, the bloc is again facing the challenge of trying to maintain solidarity between members.

Asked on Monday whether Europe can ever return to real ID-check free travel after this, Ms Merkel said: “I hope so. But it’s been shown that coordination didn’t work well everywhere the way one would have hoped.”

Young Jeezy – Never Settle


[Hook]
I want it all, brand new socks and draws
And a bitch so bad you don’t see all the flaws
A two door that go vrmm every time you hit the pedal
You want the same? Just don’t never settle
I want it all, champagne like Niagra Falls
And a big boy grill, portraits of Pac on the walls
A two door that go vrmm every time you hit the pedal
Got two words for ya, never settle

[Verse 1]
I’ma leave the bars to Kendrick and Cole I speak that real life
I-75 with them O’s know what that feel like
So how could you compare me to niggas? You can’t be serious
Ain’t the type to ask all the questions, you got me curious
Bout the only nigga in it this solid, bitch I’m a kilo
They like "who that you got there with you Young?" Oh that’s just my ego
Back to the business at hand, I need a four way
And I don’t give a fuck where it’s at, I go to Norway
Tryna be the first to the spot just like Colombus
The residue done clogged up the sink, they called the plumbers
Let down the window, tossed out the phone, I heard static
It’s time to get all them dirty clothes up out the attic
The more you niggas doubt the more ambitious I get
I’m going out like Tony, I’m busting, talking my shit
Can line my haters up, everyone of them motherfuckers
Can open up my eyes, I see none of them motherfuckers

[Hook]
I want it all, brand new socks and draws
And a bitch so bad you don’t see all the flaws
A two door that go vrmm every time you hit the pedal
You want the same? Just don’t never settle
I want it all, champagne like Niagra Falls
And a big boy grill, portraits of Pac on the walls
A two door that go vrmm every time you hit the pedal
Got two words for ya, never settle

[Verse 2]
How you gon’ stop some shit that’s unstoppable?
Why you speaking logic to some niggas that ain’t logical?
They know a room full of hatin’ ass niggas ain’t an obstacle
I see you got them VVS around you neck, look like a popsicle
I put on for my city before I even wrote the song
If I’m ever out the house with you, you know the rope was on
Picture worth 1000 words don’t need to take it out the frame
But the nigga right beside you tryna take you out the game
Like oh, see me (?) with bosses and bad bitches
And I don’t fuck with industry niggas, they ass kissers
I had a million niggas that told me I wouldn’t make it
Then I sold a million records, the talent you can’t fake it
Look, one time for that nine ho, two times for that grind though
They wanna see you light skinned, make sure that you shine though
That’s why I sit back and just roll up the weed
Let’s talk the bullshit that’s just what a nigga need

[Hook]
I want it all, brand new socks and draws
And a bitch so bad you don’t see all the flaws
A two door that go vrmm every time you hit the pedal
You want the same? Just don’t never settle

A two door that go vrmm every time you hit the pedal

Lyrics

Comments Off on Týr – The Rune letras


Down from the mountain, cries of an headless love, high above
Cold seems to me your kiss from the ocean deep, in my sleep
I see you go south on the evening tide, end your fight
Futile attempts, you can’t change the way, of our day and age of heathen and Hel

I’ve been living here from when I was born
And my heathen kin it was that found and then populated this land
Who is then this man who demands my scat
He whose mighty ancestors drove mine out of Norway to seek new lands

Which are slipping through my hands
Hold they nothing more divine
Than the property of land
Set the thing here and then

Line my booth with cloth, black as ravens wings
See to that these men are dealt as those mighty kings men that came before
Line my booth with cloth, black as ravens wings
Here in darkness with my silver bags, let them come in and take what’s mine

All the islands should be mine
But were running out of time
Wield the axe and make them mine
I will rule within my time

Here in pain
Here in darkness
Here in decadence
Lies my land like a rune that’s written by gods upon the
Ocean deep, so it reads, thou shalt not enslave thy kin, I
Swear this oath, I’ll keep my faith and I’ll keep my
Kin from all harm, raise the song to the mountains majesty for thee

Now that millennium has gone
And the sad and weary tales
Of the subsequent events
Are what’s left of greater times
