Illegal tourist rentals: the Court of Justice of the EU ruled in favor of the City of Paris
The judges were seized in 2018 by the Court of Cassation, itself seized by two owners of Parisian studios condemned for having rented their goods without the prior authorization of the Town Hall. The City of Paris has just won a major battle in its fight against Airbnb. On Tuesday September 22, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) issued its ruling in the case between the City and two rental companies of tourist accommodation - the companies Cali Apartments and HX.
balancing act at lofty heights: extreme athletes crossed the interior of the Nuremberg football stadium on a leash between the floodlight masts. The group "Konnektonauts" had stretched the 230 meter long slackline on Monday at a height of 60 meters with the help of a drone. Spectators were not allowed in the Max Morlock Stadium due to the Corona crisis. Instead, the stadium employees pursued the daring venture.
Just watching was a thrill, said a stadium announcer. The balance professionals first had to climb up the floodlight masts and then keep their balance on the wobbly line. They secured themselves with a rope - which was also necessary: the first runner slipped, fell about a meter and then pulled himself up again on the rope. Four men and a woman wanted to walk back and forth between the floodlight masts in this way.
Similar projects by the «Konnektonauts» have already taken place over the Sierra Nevada in Spain, the Lysefjord in Norway, the Tijesno Canyon in Bosnia-Herzegovina and in Saxon Switzerland.
