The premises around the Vinohrady water tower will come to life! A unique water education center called Hydropolis Prague is to be built there, enabling the public to learn what all precedes such a simple thing like the drinking water flowing from the taps in our household. The City of Prague, the Prague Water Management Company (PVS), the Prague Water Supply and Sewerage (PVK) and the company Veolia joined forces on the project.

"This project will make it possible to introduce schools, kindergartens as well as the general public to water management in a modern way. Through its implementation, we will significantly contribute to understanding the context of the objectives of the approved strategy for adaptation to climate change,"

Russia offered to host negotiations on cease-fire between the Azerbaijan and Armenian forces in the Nagorno-Karabakh region. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov extended an offer to both governments and called for an end to "war rhetoric". More than 100 deaths have been reported since Sunday. The situation is thus the most tense in recent years. Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed the hostilities with French President Emmanuel Macron in a separate phone call. Both leaders reiterated the calls of the world powers for an immediate cease-fire. Russia is part of a military alliance with Armenia and has a military base in the country. However, it also has close ties to the government of Azerbaijan.

On Wednesday, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev vowed to continue fighting until Armenian forces have left the territory.

"We only have one condition: Armenian armed forces must unconditionally, fully, and immediately leave our lands," he said.

The Nagorno-Karabakh region is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan, but the majority of the population is ethnic-Armenian.

The result of the outage is the growth of competitive markets. S & P / ASX 200 increased by 1.5%, US stock futures Dow (INDU) by 0.6%, S&P 500 (SPX) and Nasdaq (COMP) by 0.5%.

If you don't have a Vuitton bag, you may as well not exist! And in Korea, this is doubly true. The local market is so hungry for the luxury fashion brand that Vuitton placed first in the ranking of fakes. The demand for an exclusive handbag is incredibly high, the offer on second-hand goods on the market is insignificant and not everyone can afford an original. That means fakes have a green light! Customs officials of the Korean government confirmed that they have seized 432 fakes since 2017, 191 have been withheld this year alone. Gucci and Chanel came in second and third with 340 and 231 seized imitations of their products. Well, lies will get you nowhere

Abd that's all from us. We wish you a successful start to the new day, and speaking of Chanel... take to heart the iconic Coco's word and don't be afraid to express your opinion today.

"The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud."
