Good morning! Get ready: today is Budget Day, including crazy hats, the balcony scene and of course the (already leaked) contents of the Budget Memorandum. And the annual General Assembly of the United Nations begins in New York.

Are you going on the road? Here you will find an overview of the work. And here you can see where work is being done on the track.

What can you expect today?

  • The outgoing cabinet will present the budget for next year on this Budget Day. Because it is the next cabinet’s turn after the elections, the budget this time is ‘policy-poor’. In any case, thousands of people flock to the center of The Hague to see the glass carriage. King Willem-Alexander delivers the speech from the throne. Princess Alexia, who recently turned 18, will also be there for the first time.
  • It is an exciting day for the Eise Eisinga Planetarium in Franeker, known as the oldest functioning planetarium in the world. Will it be declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site? That decision will probably be made today in Saudi Arabia. The Frisian planetarium has been working for decades to achieve world heritage status.
  • The United Nations General Assembly meets in New York. From 3 p.m. Dutch time, various world leaders will give speeches, including American President Biden and Ukrainian President Zelensky. At the same time there is a climate meeting at the initiative of UN CEO Guterres.

What did you miss?

Three quarters of employees in asylum seeker centers have had to deal with undesirable behavior from a resident one or more times. The Central Agency for the Reception of Asylum Seekers (COA) reports this after a survey among staff. This mainly concerns name-calling, intimidation and threats, reports the ANP news agency.

Earlier this year, the reception organization also conducted research into the working conditions within COA. In that survey, almost one in three employees said that they had been victims of unwanted behavior by colleagues. This mainly concerns exclusion, intimidation and bullying, says the COA.

The situation has not improved in recent years: four years ago, more than half of COA employees said they had encountered undesirable behavior by residents. More than a quarter of employees said they had been victims of undesirable behavior by colleagues.

Other news from the night:

  • ‘India possibly involved in murder of Sikh leader in Canada’: Canadian security services are investigating “credible allegations” that people linked to the Indian government were involved in the liquidation of Hardeep Singh Nijjar in June, according to Prime Minister Trudeau.
  • The Dutch want prosperity to be distributed more fairly: among left-wing parties that percentage is around 80, but 43 percent are also in favor of it among VVD voters.
  • Explosions in Amsterdam and Winschoten, Bredenaar’s house evacuated for object: a witness speaks of a heavy explosive in Weesp.

And then this:

Traditionally, Bavarian breweries compete with each other in impressive tents, where thousands of people enjoy beer, sausage and Bretzel. But organic and vegetarian dishes are increasingly appearing on the menu.

‘I have a bad conscience because animals are eaten here’:

The traditional Bavarian traditions of Oktoberfest are also examined’

Happy Tuesday!
