As some one pointed out most of the images are arial photographs of lower quality - where they use satellite images (res. >1m) they have no control over the time of flyover - that is determined by the flightpath of the commercial operators. Only military sentinels and some scientific platforms carry enough fuel (or have a very short life span) to adapt their flight paths to the customers need.
Aligning images is non-trivial - you got minimal tilts which could be corrected and professional arial images (ie. not the ones used by Google) are corrected and coded for stereoscopic measuring (some specialists can determine the hight of the terrain up to a few centimeters). But you still got the height differences of earth surfaces within an image which are hard to correct and Google wont pay anyone to adapt their geo-models and image models to fit within a few decimeters.
Far more problematic is the underwhelming cartographic quality in regards to symbols, generalization ea. - heck even Apple Maps is better than Google maps in that respect.A lot of pupils don't know what a good map should look like or how to tell what determines a good map... sigh...
its all bollox. if you've washed your hands properly there will be no germs to spread.
Nope it is not - Actually institutes in England (1997, Westminster report) and Germany (2005, TÜV) ran tests regarding handwashing and drying with different means. The conclusion? Handwashing may reduce the pathogen level on your hands by about 40% (if using only soap) but the funny thing is that this holds only true if you use paper towels. If you use Cloth the reduction might be only 20% while when using Hot Air Dryers you might ending with the same count (or even more) than before. But normally you won't get infections this way - thats because your skin (and the hydrolipids covering it) will protect you - except if you destroy the hydrolipids by washing your hands too often.
And in case you want really clean hands:
There is a reason why hospitals ask you to wash your hands and then disinfect them with specialized agents. Since the 60ies most surgeons disinfect them for about 5 to 8 minutes with antiseptics (there are even EN norms for that) to be sure they won't carry pathogens.
I wouldn't worry about people not washing their hands but about people not washing and disinfecting their hands in high risk areas like hospitals, nurseries and care institutions...
So if any country within the European Council does issue a law that binds professional outlets to monitor comments and take down hate speech and comments incensing violence it may feel justified by this ruling, but vice versa no government within the European Council may be forced by this ruling to pass such laws.
The downside of all this is, that certain governments (I'm looking at you [name redacted]) will use this ruling to implement laws which will restrict the free expression of opinions online, but then there is still the ECHR to decide if such a law would violate Article 10.2 of the European Convention of Human Rights
