Europe hoping to overcome C-band satellite interference | PolicyTracker, Jan 2019
There has been a clear push by national regulators across Europe to release 3.5 GHz spectrum. However, mobile deployments in the region’s primary capacity band for 5G could be at risk due to potential satellite interference from neighbouring countries and military services.

Vodafone Netherlands says its trial of LTE licensed-assisted access (LAA) was a success and 3GPP is due to issue relevant standards in March. However, uncertainty over those standards could mean LAA is still a long way off.

HET GRAF VAN DE ONBEKENDE DICHTER
“Elk mens is een verborgen dichter”, met deze woorden doopte dichter Breyten Breytenbach tijdens het Poetry International Festival in 1986 de grote, statige plataan aan de Westersingel tot monument voor vrije gedachten. De boom werd omgedoopt tot ‘Graf van de Onbekende Dichter’. Bijna 30 jaar later, plaatst Poetry International een plaquette bij de boom waarmee de boom de status van officieel monument krijgt.

Netherlands Highways Will Glow in the Dark Starting Mid-2013 | Autopia | Wired.com
"The Smart Highway by Studio Roosegaarde and infrastructure management group Heijmans won Best Future Concept at the Dutch Design Awards, and has already gone beyond pure concept. The studio has developed a photo-luminising powder that will replace road markings — it charges up in sunlight, giving it up to 10 hours of glow-in-the-dark time come nightfall. "

California’s sinking delta | csmonitor.com
"Draining allowed oxygen to penetrate the soil, permitting microbes to consume organic detritus that had lain undisturbed for millenniums, and to churn out carbon dioxide. As the soil deflated, the land sank as much as two inches per year."
Same happened in the Netherlands -
"Before settlement, the country comprised an expanse of dome-shaped peat bogs rising above sea level. Around 1200, farmers dug channels to drain the domes, and the land sank, setting off a centuries-long race between technology and water. As sinking land and higher water tables threatened crops, the Dutch found better ways to drain the land – sluices, followed by dikes and windmill-powered pumps – and this lowered the water table further, enabling oxygen and microbes to penetrate deeper, devour more peat, and deflate additional land."
