‘No winners’ as hundred mushers brave tough Czech sled dog race

A hundred mushers and ten bikers from 11 countries battled frost and snow at a five-day sled dog race in the Czech Republic, which organisers call one of the toughest in Europe. The 23rd year of the Czech Long Trail has attracted mushers from countries across Europe — including Austria, Croatia, Germany the Netherlands and Serbia. Mushers can choose one of two tracks — 300 kilometres with five stages and an elevation topping 9,000 metres or 200 kilometres with four stages and an elevation of 7,000 metres. In Czech, the race is called Sedivackuv long — bearing the name of a dog that strayed and was shot by a local man just before the first edition of the race in 1997.

Thousands rally in Prague to commemorate Jan Palach

Thousands of people marched through central Prague Wednesday to commemorate Czech student Jan Palach who set himself alight exactly 50 years ago in protest against a Soviet-led occupation of former Czechoslovakia.

New app gives throat cancer patients their voice back

Vlastimil Gular’s life took an unwelcome turn a year ago: minor surgery on his vocal cords revealed throat cancer, which led to the loss of his larynx and with it, his voice. But the 51-year-old father of four is still chatting away using his own voice rather than the tinny timbre of a robot, thanks to an innovative app developed by two Czech universities.

Czech Republic Just Re-elected A Pro-Trump Nationalist President (HBO)

Czech President Miloš Zeman was elected for a second term Saturday, fending off centrist and pro-EU academic Jiri Drahos in a presidential race that fast became a referendum on Czech identity.

The nationalistic, pro-Trump and anti-EU Zeman is notorious for his brash style of politics, anti-migration rhetoric and as the defender of the country he now calls “Czechia.”

In 2017, the EU survived challenges from right-wing parties in the West of Europe, but in 2018 its authority is under threat from populism in the East.

Zeman has been vocal in his demands for a referendum on EU membership, which is creating another headache for Brussels.
