"One year after that, on January 1, 2022, any withdrawn domains will be released for general registration, effectively making them available to anyone in the European Union."
In other words, the Brits too, once Brexit is finally cancelled.

“IA creates nothing. IA plays no role in the hard work of researching, writing, or publishing the works or, for that matter, in creating or sustaining the overall publishing ecosystem and its distinct partnerships and markets."
Perhaps we can discuss how much academic publishers pay their authors and "peer reviewers" ?.....
That 2% figure is deaths as a percentage of infections, which is completely the wrong way to do it. You can do it that way after the virus has run it's course, and you know the final dead/survive numbers.
Currently the dead:survive ratio is around 34:66.
Google has far bigger problems that just sneaking in the ads. For a while now, their results have been truly gamed by those high-paid SEO types, and fake sites republishing things like Wikipedia, that Google fails to detect as fake. Often the text presented in the search result has nothing to do with what you get when you go to the site.
I do have some sympathy for Google here, since they are the prime target for SEO, and accept that them only showing me a handful of pages of the alleged 76,234,456 results is part of their attempt to curb the fake sites, but they need to do a better job in distinguishing the difference between the fake sites and the other genuine ones in those 76 million.
I had one of these ... it developed the "stuck at boot logo on display" problem. The printer still worked and scanned, but you could not control it via the control panel.
Assorted "hints and tips" from the net worked once but not when the problem resurfaced.
I eventually dumped it (reluctantly, since the toners were all still quite full...) and bought a Brother.
The appointed service centre wanted about £50 just to tell me what was wrong ...
Mmm.. the more you take, the more it costs:
"In June, Microsoft reckoned that the additional cloudy storage would be available in 200GB increments, with the first costing $1.99 per month, going up to $9.99 per month for the full additional 1 TB."
5 x 1.99 = 9.95
Or are chunks 2, 3, 4 and 5 more than 1.99?
FWIW.. my own opinion. Feel free to disagree.
Basically some people are more naturally suited to being coders than others. The prime group is typically something like INTJ on the Myers-Briggs scale.
However the male:female ratio in that category is (IIRC) something like 3:1.
And that's why there will likely always be more male programmers than female.
It's like demanding that every ballet company has a 50:50 male:female ratio. Or nursery school teachers, as suggested above. Nature doesn't work that way.
