The rules on gaining Austrian citizenship are among the toughest in Europe. Anyone wanting to become Austrian, for example, needs to speak good German and engage in voluntary work. Read more: http://www.dw.de/program/european-journal/s-3065-9798
Smoking among teens and young people is a major problem in Austria. A current study shows that the country tops the OECD for young smokers. About 25 percent of Austrian teens under age 15 smoke at least once a week. The high smoking rate is exacerbated by the country's inconsistent non-smoker protection legislation, which allows for numerous exceptions. However, one Austrian citizen has set out to change that by making sure that the laws that do exist are enforced properly. He's already reported about 7,000 violations to the authorities.

Austria is popular with wealthy Russians. The small town of Kitzbühel is one of the places profiting from its rich guests. Now there are fears that sanctions will scare away the Russian elite. To Reinhold Mitterlehner, Austria's Economy Minister, it's long been clear that sanctions are an own goal for his country. In the high season in winter, charter flights from Russia land hourly at the small airports serving Salzburg and Innsbruck. Last year, 1.4 million Russians vacationed in Austria, most in popular ski resorts such as Kitzbühel. Many Russian millionaires and even billionaires have bought property here. In doing so, they're combining business with pleasure, because Austria offers favorable tax conditions to well-heeled private investors. More: http://www.dw.de/european-journal-the...
Trouble in Austria: Public prosecutors are investigating several former cabinet ministers on suspicion of corruption. A shadow has fallen on the current government, as well. Chancellor Werner Faymann is suspected of having bought positive media reports when he was Transportation Minister -- at the taxpayers'expense. But things look like they were much worse in the era of his predecessor as Chancellor, Wolfgang Schüssel. Whether in the privatization of public housing or the granting of commissions for a new police radio network, politicians sold their influence to lobbyists. The public is enraged, but quarrelling among Vienna's parties may prevent a complete investigation of the scandals.

A political fight has erupted in the idyllic mountainous region about signs in German. Many rivers, lakes, meadows, paths and mountains in South Tyrol have had German names for centuries.Italy's minister for the regions now wants signs across South Tyrol to be in both German and Italian and he has threatened to send in the army to remove any that are only in German. The province of South Tyrol enjoys wide-ranging autonomy, and that is something the government in Rome does not like. It wants to pursue the Italianization of the region, which was annexed at the end of the First World War.

A bionic hand, a groundbreaking operation and the power of thought. Three Austrian men have made medical history. They have been given robotic hands they control with their minds. The innovative surgery has been detailed online in the medical journal "The Lancet":http://www.thelancet.com/ Nerves and muscles were transplanted from their legs to their arms, and the men were then trained how to use their brains to send signals through the muscles and nerves to their new hands.

Beggars are persona non grata in Austria. After a ban on panhandling in Vienna and Salzburg, now Styria has also issued a general ban, prompting a debate about discrimination and hypocrisy.In the city of Graz, the monasteries of several mendicant orders are a local testament to Christianity's tradition of support to the poor and the homeless. Supporters of the ban say that most begging is done professionally, by gangs, but the police and district attorney's office say there's no evidence to support that claim. Legal experts predict that challenges in Austria's constitutional court will soon overturn the ban.
