We already know who will win the Nobel Prize in Economics.

Extinction Rebellion wants to shut down The Hague. According to the climate club, peaceful demonstrations have not worked, so it is time for coarser artillery.

The lawyer of crown witness Nabil B. was murdered in front of his house more than two years ago. The OM demands life, the defense wants acquittal.

This could pass by the coffee machine:

Good day!
