Australia and Greece Recommend Alternative Vaccines for Young People
"Australia and greece are the latest countries to recommend alternatives to the astra zeneca cova vaccine for young people after researchers found more rare but potentially fatal blood clots linked to the vaccine. European officials have identified roughly two hundred clots among a million people who shaved astra zeneca shots in europe in the uk. Npr's jason bogosian has been following the story and he joins us now for an update. Good morning good morning jason Some of the new research was published. Just yesterday what does it say what. We still don't know exactly what's happening in these patients. The papers in the new england journal of medicine. They look at sixteen cases in norway. Germany and austria. And here's what they found. The symptoms begin about a week to fourteen days. After the immune ization patients started out with these really severe headaches. Muscle aches swelling. Nine of the sixteen died and most of them were young women in their twenties and thirties. Yikes do you know why. At this point it's too early to tell why predominance among women it may be due to the fact that norway was using astrazeneca for healthcare workers who lean towards predominantly women and using pfizer to vaccinate. It's older populations that might have things bit. Initially european regulators said the rates of this calling disorder. Were no higher than what you'd see in the general population. But they've changed that now they're saying yes it does appear that in roughly one in a hundred thousand people vaccinated with astra zeneca. This serious side. Effect could occur. We should note that the astra zeneca vaccine is not authorized yet here in the united states correct but our other countries with this new information. Still gonna use it. Well some are switching. How they're using it. They're offering alternatives to the younger people and trying to use astrazeneca more with older groups up but many countries really don't have a choice. Astra zeneca is the vaccine. Much of the world is banking on

EU regulator says AstraZeneca vaccine 'safe and effective'
"The european medicines agency has concluded that the astra zeneca covid nineteen vaccine is safe and effective. A review of the job came after thirteen states suspended. Its use over. Fears of linked to blood clots. But the now says the vaccine is not linked with a higher risk of clots. Well for more. I'm joined from brussels by darren. Mccaffrey the political editor euronews. A darn good morning to you and thanks for joining us with the doubts then about the vaccine. Will this kind all started last week or georgina. A in italy and austria where the reports of suspected blood clots for people who received that vaccine in fact amand had died in those extended to norway last weekend's and more importantly specifically to germany on monday and that led to a whole swathe of countries at particular the big four in the european union. It's the spain and france and germany deciding to suspend the use of the astrazeneca vaccine on what they call the precautionary principle so just in case essentially and that meant that the em aid and investigated these claims and yesterday. She said e kook. The director insisted that the vaccine was safe and effective. They said they couldn't find any link at all between an increase in blood clots and the vaccine however they did also that they couldn't rule arts at that there may be one specific type. Ucla cloth that has seen an increase and they couldn't rule out that that might be linked to it book again. Mccook pointed all medicine. All medicine has got side effects. You pick up a box of paracetamol at. You'll see that. In the most extreme circumstances it is possible. You might a reaction to its the point. Is that risk does not outweigh the benefits of this vaccine is the ema insisted yesterday. There are houses of people dying every day today tomorrow the next day across europe from corona virus and that this vaccine will help save lives or stop people getting ill. It will stop the main open hospital. It will stop them dying. And that's why they have consistently said that countries should have carried on using the astrazeneca vaccine an interest in the of course while not all countries stopped it for example they didn't hear belgian said. It would be irresponsible to do so. It is interesting the eu countries. Listen to the european medicines agency yesterday but ignored advice all week. The advice consistently has been not to stop the use of the astrazeneca vaccine. And i mean it just seems such a giant waste of time in terms of a race that everybody is trying to keep up with to suspend this for four really what has appeared to be no reason i mean as any woman knows taking the contraceptive pill as a much higher. Incidence of blood clots. Indeed i think from their point of view and this is where it gets complicated here in european union. Of course you've got european agency which is kind of the overarching body that authorizes drugs and authorized vaccines but you then also have national regulators. Who essentially gets to decide how those rules applied or or whether a member state should've finds by those rules when it comes to germany and where we saw a whole swathes countries at backing germany. The was the principal. There's also concerns about potential legal action because ultimately this is a state authorized vaccine service ad. That's been offered obviously to every german. And i think there was concern. That even could be farmed and they had data evidence to say that the wasn't increase increasing site. When it came to one specific type of blood clots the wilkinson's that may well open the german state of legal action and they wanted it to be investigated but yet. In retrospect all men many of these member states looking back. I answer that decision and decided it was the right one to do. Given the unfair. I would suggest damage reputation of astra zeneca for a whole load of ruse reasons across the eu and the damage that might do to the overall vaccine program. I'm not entirely sure was the right thing to
EU regulator reviews AstraZeneca shot and blood clot links
"Up the astra zeneca ccp virus vaccines. They're investigating the doses as a precaution. After one person died. Another was sickened following inoculation. Basically austria suspended a batch of astrazeneca vaccines after some reports of some unusual blood clotting events and then a few days later we saw denmark. Basically say we're gonna stop vaccinating with astrazeneca completely Toya melanoma some other. Nordic countries made similar announcements and over the following week saw more and more european union countries said. Oh yeah actually. Let's just hit pause. The authorities in the republic of ireland have recommended temporarily suspending. The use of the astra zeneca vaccine. One investigations are carried out into four new reports of blood closing in patients who received the job in norway. Well then on. Monday saw kind of the big powerful you. Countries france germany italy spain also that they were gonna pause vaccination update on some breaking news and france germany and we have now joined the eu countries to suspend the rollout of the oxford astrazeneca covid vaccine and meanwhile it's important to say that regulators weather we're talking about the european medicines agency or the world health organization. They've said look so far. We haven't seen any evidence that these blood clotting events are caused by the vaccine. Just because you get a vaccine doesn't mean that you're protected from every other normal thing that can go wrong. The latest data from the european medicines agency shows that out of five million astra zeneca vaccinations given across the continent. That have been thirty. Reports of people suffering a blood clot soon afterwards but in a population of that size you would expect five thousand people a year to develop blood clots even without vaccination obviously cardiovascular. Problems are are pretty common and the argument from astra zeneca is that. Hey look actually. These aren't happening anymore than than we would predict to happen. And kind of normal circumstances in the general population. And you're also not seeing more issues with these vaccines than with other virus vaccine. So why are you picking on us So like let's say Instead of vaccines we were. We were talking about sports drinks here. it's sort of like a situation where some people who buy gatorade happen to get in car accidents and then everybody decides. You shouldn't buy gatorade because you're gonna get it in a car accident but at the same time like people who get other sports drinks are also still getting in car accidents. So potentially and and probably. That's what happened. But the and other regulators around the world including the world health organization are really looking at this closely and trying to figure out what's going on and the reality is that there have been instances where vaccines do cause problems in a very rare number of cases. But the other thing. Is you know this could also be caused by the coronavirus itself and the argument that many are making including at the who and at the european medicines agency is corona. Virus is a serious deadly disease. So if you're thinking about risk versus benefit which is the way a lot of drug regulators. Think it's still worth the risk that maybe a tiny number of people will have these blood clots in exchange for the benefit of of so many more people being protected from an even more dangerous. It's fascinating so you have. What could be a small risk. Might not even be a risk associated with vaccine but you still have this huge domino effect of of countries. Pausing the shots. I mean at this point. It sounds like almost most of europe isn't giving astrazeneca at this point. Yeah it's at least seventeen at this point. And that's out of twenty seven countries and perhaps even more importantly that includes some of the biggest most powerful countries ones that have their own regulatory system so a lot of the smaller. Eu countries really rely on the european medicines agency where as countries like france and germany. Kind of have the power to make their own decisions. But we've at the same time we also saw spanish official. The spanish health minister say that spain actually has not even seen very many of these cases at all but sort of because they saw these other countries doing it. They felt pressure to as a precaution. You hear the word precaution a lot. They felt pressure as precaution to hit. Pause wow it just seems
Countries across Europe suspend use of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine over blood clot fears
"Has joined the list of names putting a pause on the astra. Zeneca covid nineteen vaccine. As we reported yesterday france. Germany and italy have temporarily stopped administering the vaccine after a small number of patients experienced blood. Clotting the astrazeneca vaccine hasn't been given emergency authorization in the us yet and it's one of four different vaccines that have been approved in the eu but the decision to suspend its use comes as much of the eu is seen an uptick in cases as more virulent strains of the virus outpace vaccinations. What will this mean. For the overall vaccination efforts in europe the journalist any strasbourg has been covering the vaccine. Roll out from the start and joins me jenny. Welcome thank you very much. Nice to be here jenny. We got the news yesterday. That spain france germany and italy are suspending. The astra zeneca vaccinations but they are not alone last week. Denmark pause the shots than norway ireland. The netherlands followed suit as someone who has been on the story early on. Is this collective movement surprise to you. Well so i think a lot of what's happening is the cautions building right so it we're not saying we're not seeing new cases reported as much as we're seeing countries saying look we're gonna wait for the european medicines regulator to essentially do their review. Were expecting the they're called the ama. We're expecting that agency to say something about it. It's been looking into these reports because it all started about a week ago with some reports out of austria and there was one batch that they stopped you that austria stopped using but they kept using the astrazeneca vaccine. It was really last thursday that denmark norway iceland stopped using the vaccine altogether. It's been building up since then but they're all kind of citing for the most part. I mean it's fast moving but they're all citing you know the same investigation that's happening the same review of safety. So you're seeing a bunch of new reports pile up just a lot of a lot of shared caution. We should mention. Astrazeneca has said the number of cases of blood clotting among people in the eu and uk who have received a shot is lower than for the general population. Jenny we had this big push to get as many shots in arms as possible as quickly as possible but there have been some hiccups in the eu. What does this all mean for the broader effort to accelerate the population. Yeah well i mean it's really bad timing. I mean europe has been sluggish in its vaccine. Rollouts ms we've chronicled in great detail in and then the same company astra zeneca is been under massive political fire for shortcomings than their deliveries. This quarter and next quarter or hundred million doses fewer than they projected. You know that was a huge huge thing late last week again. I mean it's not. It's not good but we also don't know how long all these countries are saying. This is a temporary cautionary measure. We want more information. We just wanna make sure we're not making a mistake. The uk has said keep vaccinating people with shy. We don't see evidence we've done eleven million plus doses of this vaccine. Were not seeing problems if we were we. Would we would say hunting. And even you know. There's an international association has devoted to thrombosis clotting issues and they're saying we don't think we think the cove nineteen with blood. Clotting is actually greater than the use of the vaccine but look if your a country in your people are asking questions is a safe you. You wanna be able to tell them. It is so some people are saying. Look the systems working like the risks are being assessed. And that's what we want. As part of your reporting you have talked to a lot of scientists and researchers during the pandemic any idea about. Just how big of a concern. There is about safety at this point. I mean look this. This vaccine has not raised red flags about severe safety concerns. It's been the large scale. Clinical trials have mainly thrown up results. Showing mild to moderate. You know side effects or reactions. Really they're not even so severe be called side. Effects like soreness in the arm stiffness chills about headache stuff. That goes away over a few days so this. This is all pretty new for this vaccine. The concerns about safety and at the same time though as every as regulators including the european medicines regulators pointing out they see more instances of severe blood clotting in the general population than have been reported in relation to post vaccination. So you know causality is difficult. It's a difficult question. Are people ill. And as millions of people get vaccinated. Some of them will will show problems. There have been a couple of there have been some deaths. Would they have happened anyway. You know causing showing link between the vaccine and the illnesses and the conditions can be very difficult especially out of clinical
AstraZeneca finds no evidence of increased blood clot risk from vaccine

BBC Three is Coming Back to TV
"Let's talk about tv and bbc. Three which will be returning to the fusty old fashioned airwaves. After an absence of nearly six years. It's going to be back on. Tv sets in january maggie Will you be watching things target demographic but will you be watching your the target demographic but i'm very piece it's coming back I think he shouldn't've gone away in the fest place. I also like the fact that it's also going to be a following on from cbc so the one of the aims of the bbc. One of the failures of the bbc has been fantastic children's programming. The seabees thought graduating through to see bbc. So we can think of horrible histories strict sonko great great shows but then they lost that advantage and i think now that they're going to take an hour of cbc and move into bbc straight. And i think this is actually a potentially good way of rebuilding interest because they can actually put forward some some grapes. Some great shows whether they'll be watched. I didn't know they can be caught up with but the thing is really spoiled for choice now and to actually just rope a group of a tv channel. Just seems to me to have been a very bad idea. But on the other hand what she see is that the regulators have been nagging away the producers because on the exec because that losing the younger views in but it's a very competitive market so the more outlets you have the best staff is. It's been obvious to real professionals in television including the control of bbc. Three that the decision five years ago it was wrong and so they're finally Reversing it may be too late. But i'm glad that june yes interesting. Jake look back actually or listened back. I should say to what our panelists said here on the media. Podcast when the move was announced that bbc's be bbc three would be moving online because we were on abbott van in two thousand fifteen Leon wilson said on the show to me. It's a huge mistake. It will probably be a qualified. Success will be one or two programs that pumps through online. But it'll be harder for us to be seen and for asthma and said this is nonsense. I can't believe this is happening. Television has an important canvas. That young people under served in time has proven right really. Hasn't it was always a mistake to put bbc three on mine. Can we just say that. Now i think the fact that the bbc's made this decision is a tacit acknowledgement that. It was a mistake. But i also don't think that it was a failure. Bbc three unshackled from the jill did reasonably. Well did very well. In fact some fantastic shows came through within online environment. I'm thinking that alexa flee back which has gone on to huge international success and won emmys and landed phoebe waller bridge a huge deal with amazon. And then you look at things like normal people which came last year plasma successful show Austria and beyond. I think ever Things like this country just quality quality programming now that that's not to say that those shows would not been commissioned if bbc. Three's on television. But i do think there was a creative freedom that came with being online and i hope that that remains that creative freedom continues and the bbc three doesn't have to spend money on shedule filling content like family. Guy like eastenders repeats because that you know that comes with a cost it still comes with. The cost is all repeats but they they still come with a cost shows. So why don't save the cash because all of those shows that jake just listed. Maggie had outings bbc one obesity too anyway. So they did get linear outing. And arguably would have been commissioned even bbc three haven't been an existed somewhere else on the bbc. I'm sure of course feedback with a bit of. The thing is really that that they had a late slot. Which is off to a the news helpless ten which is fine. I suppose but if a peanut the younger teenage area maybe it's better to be a bit more funky roundabout survey to talk of people who've had softened the home what they're looking for some entertainment secondly even if this is a qualified success. It's not you're not saying that. The programming copy shot on another channel. What you'll saying is going to premiere on bbc. Three and the seats will have its own form of promotions. General Ambience and i think that that shows the bbc has about the singer. Bob this past yet really opinion is that we really do well. What what is really happened is despite all channels. Having a terrible television broncos mutawa time in order to make programs have if you had to tear up hills the shadows. I didn't know how they will manage to keep going. It's been a very very very difficult. But they have performed. I think really well. And one of the aspects of it is the the Regulations and the quotas and on the agreements that they strike can have a run the channels what we put in the amount of circle public service will costing lawyers moods of of quotas and measurements to us forty two inches ready test channel phone over a hundred for the for the. They been relaxed because they had to. They had to be what they could be given the circumstances and i think they've done brilliantly and so i do think that another kind of channel to pay rounded up trusting. The bulk custos is at this point. Really good thing. I think that if you look at the energy is gone into some of the changes in just the the kind of logos and all the rest of that using the gen will the bits between the programs. they advertise that pregnancy will be very jazzy. I'm very keen an above all to. They've they've understood what the nation wants so we want more outdoor kind of things. We've had the the devon's on the komo's in the countryside programming that you could possibly drum up and it's been like that too with children Having the the bbc by sesame the government didn't say to bbc in in february across Help children home educate. They just did the juicy and they came up by april with with a complete scheme and then they re extended it. They used radio for Things so i think. Now it's the bbc is about to be besieged on despite order the gloom about since fees advertising and blah blah blah off broke custos. Domestic focuses are ashamed themselves to be foot of grits.

Although the dental is only account for less than ten percent of sales but she says traditional dresses where she gets her inspiration. Do you like to be associated with the traditional?

Inspirations when I looked to other countries and then the Australian Line for me it's my roots. Come from it's what I learned at my grandma. She taught me how to saw in by hand when I was like thirteen. Fourteen think of main reason why my collections really successful is that we put a lot of attention to detail in the craftmanship in the combination of different fabrics. And also the lining. The Wade's made is always tailor-made and not MS product. Do you do a lot of work yourself embroidering anymore. Unfortunately I used to be mainly creative one touch fabric and start cutting it and putting it together and sewing but I was not the most professional to be honest I would like just cut into it. Start sewing and then make alterations. I'm the same in the kitchen. I never followed recipes. Does it apply to as well? No because I have my staff and they love working very professionally so I can be unprofessional as a designer which amazing I suppose there's still lots of traditional tailors in the countryside making the accounts and traditional dress.

Pure cotton sold equality of the fabrics is definitely up across a dishonored to save on fabric. Is it usually the Austrians Austrian women by dentals not only because it's become a bit of a trend recently to get married in Australia and for that we saw a lot of handcrafted? Can you talk a little bit about the history of the dental? The dental the classically as you describe it consists of four parts percival skirt second Abram third bodice to call it and then under the bodies would be a blouse so it was the typical combination of pieces of clothing. Worn in the borking. Classes are in the country for farmers. This type of dress is also basically the same in all countries in all cultures. Which for me makes amazing to compare maybe Bohemian dress. Also Turkish and Greece. National addresses are so similar. They all make regional. Differences visible by applying different. Handcraft Australian. Today is stillborn in daily life. Because it's not very stiff. It's wearable if it's a cotton one not a silk one. You can definitely work to office in Syria where I'm from. It's become actually quite common if you have appointments with dinners and you don't want to put on like a cocktail dress. You take deadline. And then yeah then came the Nazis in the thirteenth. So let's just skip like from all these hundreds of years dental mainly existed in the same shape in one thousand nine hundred. Thirteen Nazi's decided that there is going to be very strict rules about how a din looks in a different freedom because they were very clever to instrumentalise something that is very common and very rural and very down to Earth also and speaks to people and if you still stick to those rules I mean. It doesn't say that you're any kind of right wing thinker when I grew up at never wasted a single thought about if my national dresses. I'm right being person. And I thought it was very unfair to the item of clothing to instrumentalise it and everyone who were lead. Horton and be proud of their Australian roots to put them in the certain box and I was always fighting against it and the trend towards a dental and lederhosen and Austrian national dress came back very very slowly but then almost exploded. Because I think Australians as well as Germans they had to be ashamed of their heritage after Second World War for such a long time whereas English or French. All of those countries committed war crimes and still do. But nobody's pointing at Italians and say like you're like a fascist because you're proud of your country and you wave your flag but the Austrians and Germans. They had like a huge complex about it. All the people still put it in the same box because there were forced to read. They'll when they were young and the parents would be not with the regime so it's still stained from my point of view. I hope that came across K. A. C. strongly about it I was I was Gonna ask you about it. I mean I'm glad you talked about you. So do you recreate the original the traditional pattern? So you add anything. I love sticking to bury traditional rules of how constructed in little and how to finish it how to work your hands through the fabric. Basically but of course don't stick to the regional color combination roles because I think that's totally up to the regions to reproduce their own regional deals so for me. It's a fashion Indian Lonzo to new color combinations or I would use Morris Fabrics with beautiful founder Sierra club Prince and combine it with a Silk Apron on I love English rose prince to use for the animals. So that's a combination you know what's English fabric doing on a dental. But it's just my the predation and we've been selling those really successfully leinna harsh chack. Speaking.

"Not be too harsh on the the grand details of Austrian design which I have dedicated a little bit of space to one of the interesting things about Australian design. Is this just inherent love for detail for quality and you know those chairs that you were talking about the net. Chaz that's still in production today. They've been in production for maybe two hundred or so years. People are still buying them. There is something that can be said to that. But also you know. There is a whole new world of contemporary Austrian design that we dug into our grand Austrian design tour. And as I look through these pages they look very fetching lovely mix of short stories of illustration that. You've really gone into the details. Their stories about typography `grats their stories about the manufacturing sector about making tractors and things of that nature which are bit less obvious late known on the world stage about hoster. What was some of the stories that kind of stuck out for you? Yeah I think just going back to what I was saying before attention to detail. Kind of marks everything. That's don in Australia. They really really care. About every little component of design so that could be like you say in the manufacturing where we looked at vehicle design so we have an amazing tractor by a company called Linda. Here who basically you know deal with very fussy to rolling farmers who want the very best looking tractors for this lips to impress rivals across the field but also super functional as well so this thing is not going to break down like no matter how deep the snow is when they're doing the winter work and then they're lighter elements to with regards to vehicles so another great example is this device called Ziesel which is a wheelchair that goes off road to takes disabled people wherever they want to go on the slopes and a nice bit branding their on the name Ziesel. I'm not sure what it means in Germany but it sounds like a bit of Fun Nippon. Z's left I needed to think it means Squirrel Australian type of girl but yet great name. Oh I love that. You've done amazing thing here which I really liked. I suppose the Austrian diaspora the modernists who were integral to designing the California of the fifties sixties and seventies with thinking about Richard Notre. A little known fact the mole was invented by an Australian guy. Could Victor Gruen. Do you think the Austrian designers beyond Australia. I know there's a lot of manufacturing home. We care about that. But do you think Austrian designers played a role on the world stage? A little bit as well. Yeah I love this piece. That one of our journalist Andrew Romano wrote forest where he really goes into this impact. Those modernists that you were talking about Hatton California residential design across the states which went on to inform the amazing modernist houses. You'd see as far away as the Gold Coast in Australia. But I think today perhaps not so much in the architecture certainly in the world of graphic design. The Austrians really are ahead of the pack and a lot of ways but it tends to be Austrians that go abroad Australia. Using the the knowledge and the practical way of design that they've lead at home and take it into far flung corners of the globe. And and really push it so Steph Elsag maestas a really good example of that someone you know who learned his craft in Austria moved to New York went onto establish one of the most important graphic design companies in the world and their names continuing to do that but on the home front and I think this is kind of interesting as well looking at what separates that designers in Australia. A lot of them really pick up on the grandeur. The beautiful inglorious old past old glamour of Australia really is them. You're a big fan of Vienna. I know like when you walking around these coffee shops. You really almost feel like you're stepping back in time. And for people like Verena penholder. Who's a Vienna based graphic designer direction? Expert that we profiled. She really feels that in her work. She really can just take inspiration from the old building. The old signs and then I guess because you know you're so open to international clients these days she's able to translate that into a really strong global body of work absolutely and just to Andrew. Romano piece actually lives in annoyed tra- house so he would know he saw town. Amazing modernist birth to live in as well for people that maybe aren't familiar with Austria. One of the reasons that we decided to approach editorially was we feel like there's a space in the world for positive stories and one of the things that really sticks out. The I think the world can learn from Australia is about keeping crafter home. Savannah is the biggest landlord in Europe and it allows people to run a business close to where they live in affordable price and actually make things and as. I flicked through your designed directory. It could be beautiful old silver. That's been made in the same place for one hundred years in the sixth or seventh district could be accompanied like cow. Model that makes lighting spur. Roszke did a piece of advertising in the issue but we're also obviously a fan of them. How important do you think? Croft is to the Austrian story overseas in the UK of sold all that to The Far East but they've managed to hold onto a bit in Europe. I haven't yeah. I think it's incredibly important. It really does mark everything that they do that in terms of design and particularly industrial design. And I'd like to point out a story about a lovely lady and design curator called elite Story Liechtenstein who? I've had quite a lot to do with in the last few years because she's always at every single you know important. International Design of 'em whether that's designed Miami or Milan Design Week and she really champions Australian Kroft through the Lens of young designers all around the world. She invites these young talents from Miami or Mellon to come and take pot at residency that she hosts in her Schloss Josh. I think you'd be for this. You get to spend two weeks there. Go around this incredible old. Cosso filled with the most beautiful furniture and furnishings. Take inspiration from it and then channel it into a new project often working with artisans and makers in that part of Rural Austria near Grottes so I mean as an experience is absolutely incredible. It really speaks to this idea of maintaining this strong relationship with Croft Mowlam's sold. I'm waiting for my invite just looking elsewhere in the issue. I mean we have interviews with Lily Line. Who is the head of Vienna Design Week? Her brother Max Jalan important curator in New York just showing that kind of Austrian connection around the world. There's also a lovely story that equity could have sat in the design sanction but ended up in culture about the R F if. I'm saying that correctly Austrian Broadcasting Radio House but I'm GonNa bring things a little bit closer to home for my final question. Roland is well known in the design. Press that you've just moved house. You're furnishing a lovely new home. Here in London. Did any Austrian buys. Make it onto the longlist. You know they don't need to be sitting on the coffee table just yet but have you got your eyes on anything that would be not massively unaffordable rare one of peace from the early twentieth century. But just a bit approachable Austrian designed to honest to might want to indulge in. Well I was a little bit cheeky. When I reported this design section I went to Vienna and hung out with a couple of guys who I think absolutely incredible what they do is they buy old villas and old mid-century buildings in parts of Rural Austria and convert them into incredible new hotels and stayaways and have really attracted the crowd from Vienna to head to these places and they furnish these villas once called Villa Antoinette. The other one's called hotel firm Blake with fines. Mainly from this one market which I was so keynes's check out that I had to write a whole story about so myself and Michael. Who's one half of the developing? These hotels went down to Nash. Mocked in the middle of Vienna on a freezing cold morning and just spent the morning bogging and buying pieces. He bought most of the pieces. He has a bit more money May and put them all together and made a beautiful story in photo. Shoot out of that so that was a cheeky for me. I also worked with the photographer. Who Shot with that to do a story later in the issue about cakes which is very exciting and why the little a tourist mainstay and have survived from the. Habsburg days but the photographer told me a very cold on the national. He's got some good portrait view. Bundled up in a nice fleece jacket. My sincere thanks..

Behind the high altar were meticulously dismantled and packed away the precious pulpit was encased in a shell of brick the maria poach icon was stashed in the basement as the war was drawing to a close it appeared. Saint stephen's would escape major damage. But as the nazis were fleeing the bitter nazi commander in charge of the city ordered that the church destroyed fortunately his underlings disobeyed. Unfortunately the church caught fire during allied bombing. The wooden roof collapsed onto the stone. Vaults of the ceiling. Most of the clear glass windows of the nave were destroyed.

It retains part of a church that stood here earlier but was destroyed by fire before vienna was christian. There was a pagan roman temple on this spot. The roman fortress into bona stood roughly where the glassy modern building stands today. The church facade pays homage to that ancient heritage roman era statues are embedded in the facade. The two octagonal towers flanking the main doorway dubbed the heathen towers. They're built with a few recycled roman stones. The christians made sure they flipped the stones over to hide the pagan inscriptions while the rest of the churches in the gothic style.

Christ looks down triumphant over death flanked by angels with dramatic wings. He welcomes all ornate tree.

We'll start along the right hand side of saint stephen's that is the south side. Find a spot where you can take in the sheer magnitude of this massive church with its skyscrapers inspire. Saint stephen's is a marvel of medieval architecture. The towers and prickly steeples pointed arches gargoyles statues and the colorful mosaic tile roof. For fifteen hundred years. This spot has been the center of vienna's christian faith. The church we see today is the third to occupy this space after a fire burned the previous church around twelve fifty. Today's entrance facade was built over the next two and a half centuries. They extended the nave and towers at the end of each transept. Saint stephen's covers almost an acre of land. That was a huge church for a small medieval town of ten thousand but vienna's founder the habsburg duke rudolph the fourth wanted to put his hometown on the map in thirteen forty. He bankrolled new construction. Saint stephen's was to be bigger than even saint vitus cathedral in prague. A century later the new church was so grand helped convince the authorities. That vienna deserved bishop. So that church became a cathedral. Politically vienna soon replaced prague as the capital of the holy roman empire. The impressive south tower is four hundred and fifty feet tall and capped with golden orb and cross. It took two generations to build about sixty five years and was finished in fourteen. Thirty three no church spire in the empire would ever be taller by habsburg decree. The tower is a rarity among medieval churches in that it was actually completed as planned many church towers like saint. Stephen's north tower remained unfinished by the time the gothic style petered out with its three hundred and sixty degree view. The south tower was once key to the city's defense functioning has a lookout point. These days it offers a great view to tourists. But you'll earn it. It's three hundred and forty-three tightly wound steps up. A spiral staircase lisa. They told me that hike burns about one soccer tort worth of calories. Oh good i'll need to see it twice one time top. You can look down on the church's colorful roof. You can see. Vienna's low level skyline. How major skyscrapers are exiled to the outskirts. And in the distance to the southwest the green hills of the vienna woods. Mark the start of the alps for more than half a millennium saint. Stephen's has been the heart and soul of vienna. Check your pockets for ten coins. You'll see that austria's picked the south tower as their icon. Even today the viennese have an affectionate nickname for the tower. They call it steph. Or little stevie. Now let's look closer at the church. The colorful roof is sharply pitched and stands two hundred feet tall. It's covered in two hundred and thirty thousand ceramic tiles. The zigzag pattern here on the south side is purely decorative with no special symbolism. now find the middle buttress. Look above the low green roof and find the buttress marked with the date. Sixteen eighty three look closer. I don't see it no closer even closer to see. What's that stuck in the buttress. It's a cannonball that's right. It's a remnant of when the ottoman turks lead siege to the city in sixteen eighty three. The church has weathered other wars as well. You'll notice that the north tower on the other side of the church is only half the size of little shefa. It was meant to be just as big as the south tower with a matching steeple. The ottomans were approaching the city. Construction funds had to be diverted to the defense department and tower was never finished even in modern times. The church has suffered from war. Locate some old black and white photos posted on the square. You'll find them next to the door marked.
