Sex work without a permit
State Secretary for Justice and Security Eric van der Burg is going on a working visit to Hilversum today. He wants to be informed about the sex policy in the city. In Hilversum, sex workers who work from home do not need a permit. The municipality equates sex work with other door-to-door related professions such as photographers, driving school owners and nail stylists. The cabinet has been working on a new law for sex work for years. This should increase the safety of sex workers. How does it work in Hilversum?
Ron DeSantis presidential candidate
He is the hope of a new generation of Republicans: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. The 44-year-old DeSantis opposes everyone who calls themselves woke and everything that is politically correct. He stands for traditional values. For a while, he was the dead favorite to take on President Joe Biden, but DeSantis must first deal with fellow party member Donald Trump. The former president is far ahead of him in the polls. DeSantis is officially running for office today.
Extreme weather in Spain
In southeastern Spain, regions are now experiencing heavy rainfall after extreme drought. The government has issued a flood warning for the affected areas. The country experienced the warmest and driest April on record last month. The UN climate panel IPCC has previously warned that countries around the Mediterranean Sea, such as Spain, will experience extreme weather relatively more often as a result of climate change. We talk about it with professor of hydrology at Utrecht University, Marc Bierkens.
