Investments in oat milk are becoming a trend and housing in Prague is likely to be more affordable. Joe Biden took another significant step on the way to the White House. And will a new invention save the world's orangutan population, or is it too late? We bring you an overview of hot news from home as well as around the world!

Hints of hope for living in Prague

The project Affordable Cooperative Housing with the Participation of the Capital City of Prague, the preparation of which has been managed by Councilor Hana Kordová Marvanová from the beginning, got a green light from the City Council of the Capital City of Prague and will be discussed by City Assembly on Thursday. The project is one of the main points of the election program of the coalition United Forces for Prague (STAN/TOP09/KDU-ČSL) and part of the program statement of the City Council of the Capital City of Prague.

The essence of the project is to help particularly middle-income groups of citizens, including young families, for whom housing in the capital is often unaffordable. The project should also help representatives of professions of crucial importance for the operation and development of the capital. Those include teachers, paramedics, firefighters or police officers.

"Due to high prices, housing in Prague has become financially unaffordable even for the middle-income group. The trend has only been exacerbated by the situation related to the coronavirus pandemic. In this way, we would like to help young families, and especially the representatives of the professions that are necessary for the operation and development of the city,"

concludes the Chairman of the United Forces for Prague Jiří Pospíšil.

The Duchess of Sussex bets on oat milk

Prince Harry's wife decided to invest in Clevr Blends, a company that sells oat milk in four different flavors. The company proudly claims that they can provide reliable proof of ethical origin of their products, which are both healthy and sustainable.

"This investment is in support of a passionate female entrepreneur who prioritizes building community alongside her business. I’m proud to invest in her commitment to sourcing ethical ingredients and creating a product that I personally love and that has a holistic approach to wellness,"

Meghan Markle says about her investment.

Investing in oat milks seems be turning into a trend, and Meghan might have been inspired by Oprah Winfrey or Natalie Portman, who invested $ 200 million in Oatly.

Electors confirm Biden as president

Although polling stations in the United States opened on November 3, and the results of the presidential election were tentatively known after 24 hours, Joe Biden's path to taking office is nowhere close to its end. An important milestone is the confirmation of the results by the electoral college, who have finally elected the 46th President of the United States of America.

"The flame of democracy was lit in this nation a long time ago. And we now know nothing, not even a pandemic or an abuse of power, can extinguish that flame,"

said the incoming president in a subsequent speech, stressing that democracy had been tried in previous years but proved to be strong, resilient and true. According to Biden, it is now necessary to turn the page as fast as possible so that the divided nation can be reunited and healed.

The elector votes will play their role on January 6, when they going to be counted before the congress and confirmed by the current vice-president Mike Pence. After that, on January 20, Biden will take office. We'll have to wait and see how Donald Trump reacts to the current development; he had previously announced that he would leave the White House peacefully if the elector votes confirmed his defeat.

Can you guess which is the most commonly used type of oil in the world? Palm oil has the largest share of around one third. You can find it in a wide range of products from food to cosmetics, and statistics show that up to half of the products packaged in supermarkets list it in their ingredients. However, its rapid increase in popularity has an adverse effect on the environment, as new plantations lead to massive deforestation throughout the tropics, which subsequently reflects on the state of the local fauna. This problem is most acute in orangutans, which are already considered critically endangered. And if there is no change, we'll find them only in protected nature reserves in the future.

Experts have been - unsuccessfully - trying to sound the alarm, but until humanity finds an alternative, the trend can't be expected to change. However, the situation could be reversed thanks to a new project of C16 Biosciences, a companty that invented a synthetic version of this oil. The product isn't on the market yet, because it's currently in the final phase of testing, but if everything goes well, the authors promise that its production will be cheap and, above all, profitable. That should attract investors and reduce dependence on the natural version in the long run. In addition to the C16 Biosciences laboratories, a similar project is also underway at the British University in Bath or at the California start-up Kiverdi. We can't but hope it's not too late to reverse the damage!

Zoox introduces a self-driving taxi

The future is now! The pioneer of new technologies in the automotive industry is currently Tesla, whose founder and visionary Elon Musk has popularized electric cars so much that no carmaker fails to include them in their catalog in order to keep up with the times. But Amazon now intends to take the lead in innovation through its subsidiary Zoox, which has introduced a self-driving taxi!

Although Zoox is still more of a technological start-up, its robo-taxi, as the vehicle has been nicknamed by foreign media, amazes at first sight, for instance by the lack of both a steering wheel and pedals - and we can't imagine it could look any more luxurious! Both elements are simply no longer needed and would only interfere. And the parameters are not bad either. The electric car should run for a full 16 hours without charging, could travel in both directions at its discretion and reach a speed of up to 120 kilometers per hour. That doesn't sound bad, does it? However, Zoox is not the only company that intends to transform similar technology into practice; Apple also plans to introduce its own autonomous vehicle.

That's all from us today. We wish you a beautiful Tuesday morning, and as businessman and teacher Robert Kiosaki said:

"Your future is based on what you do today, not tomorrow."
