Germany today marked the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and the reunification of the country with a ceremony at the Memorial of the Wall in the presence of President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and Chancellor Angela Merkel.
The fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989, in an atmosphere of joy, raised hopes for the "end of history" and the birth of a borderless world.
Thirty years later, many barriers, including trade, security and civilizational barriers, are linked to the fear of globalization, all of which encourage security solutions and convergence.
"If those who ended the Cold War watch what is happening today, they will see the situation turn against their ambitions," said Elizabeth Valet, a researcher at the University of Quebec in Montreal, Canada, a world-renowned specialist on border wall issues.
"We are now certain that there are 40,000 kilometers of walls in the world, the equivalent of the Earth's perimeter," she said, reflecting a significant rise in the number of walls in the past 20 years by 71, defined as built-in structures that cannot be crossed. .
Most of these walls are located on the Asian continent, around China, India and Korea, as well as in Israel in the Middle East, and were built in Central Europe, especially in Hungary, Bulgaria and the United States to prevent the infiltration of immigrants.
Thirty years ago in Europe with the fall of the Iron Curtain, "people were happy to see that boundaries could be projected for eternity," said Nick Paxton of the Research Institute, which published a report a year ago. To raise fears and divisions. "
The geographer and former ambassador Michel Fuchs in her book "The Return of Borders", that "the border has never disappeared only in the psychological maps of European travelers" and that "the abolition of borders means the removal of states and the world without borders is a brutal world ... One mistake is to emphasize that borders and sovereignty Will be gone, and it's not true. "
She added: These walls have extended in the United States with Donald Trump's wall against Mexico or the sea that the Italian nationalist leader Matteo Salvini wants in the Mediterranean.
The reason, as summarized by German politician Wolfgang Merkel, is that the real wall today is what differentiates between citizens who "believe in globalization" and those who fear or suffer from it.
This change worries some Germans who lived in the GDR, such as Carsten Prinsing, who said: "We are the last generation that grew up under dictatorship and we are witnesses to history." Scary".
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo found solace only in announcing that Russia disappointed the West after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.
Pompeo said the West expected appropriate changes in the world after the fall of communism in Berlin, Moscow and the rest of the eastern world, but "our expectations" were not believed.
Washington and Berlin, according to the US secretary of state, must protect "freedom and our future" from Moscow and Beijing, so NATO expands to the east and expands east even in the event of a clinical death, as French President Emmanuel Macron put it.
But German politicians failed Pompeo by explicitly admitting that Germany had regained its unity thanks to Russia and its position, not by NATO, its policies and its armies.
NASA has offered a preliminary version of its first fully electric experimental aircraft, the X-57 Maxwell, at an aerospace laboratory in the California desert.
The aircraft, based on the Italian twin-engine Technum B 2006 T, is being developed since 2015 and is still at least a year away from its first test flight.
The aircraft relies on 14 electric engines powered by lithium-ion batteries.
Although private companies have been developing electric planes for years, NASA's X-57 project aims to design and demonstrate technology that meets standards that businesses can apply for government approval.
Brent Cablah, an official at the department's Armstrong Aviation Research Center, said standards include aviation efficiency, safety, energy and noise reduction.
"We are focusing on things that can support the entire sector, not just one company. Our goal now is to fly this aircraft by the end of 2020," he told Reuters in an interview.
President Vladimir Putin said Russia could become one of the world's leading players in the field of artificial intelligence.
Speaking at an artificial intelligence conference titled Artificial Intelligence Journey, President Putin said: “The demand from our institutions and companies that share state capital must be very strict. I consider the ability to ensure and enhance the technological capabilities of the country the most important criterion for its effectiveness. "The weight and importance of future work is immense. I am convinced that we can and must become one of the leading players in artificial intelligence in the world."
President Putin stressed that this is a question of the future of the country and its place in the world.
"We can really do this, taking into account the potential of our national schools in mathematics, physics and other fine sciences, as well as in the humanitarian field," Putin said.
The conference will take place on 8 and 9 November in Moscow. Participants will discuss several issues in this area, including the implementation of the National Strategy for the Development of Artificial Intelligence, which was approved by the Russian President a while ago.

Dorsey stressed that Twitter's position does not contradict freedom of expression, which is the argument behind Facebook in its support for the dissemination of political advertising.
Earlier, Dorsey expressed his unequivocal refusal to join the Facebook digital currency project called Libra
