SEP. 1: E.U. has decided not to apply the time change (actually on October’s last Sunday, and on March’s last Sunday). This issue is going to be evaluated, as President Jean-Claude Juncker announced.
SEP. 3: E.U. releases €138 million in humanitarian and development funding for Africa’s Lake Chad Region. U.S.: This day celebrates the labor day, with an employment setting records low, thanks to the United States’ government measures.
SEP. 4: In U.S. is the first day on the confirmation hearing of judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States’ Supreme Court.

SEP. 5: E.U.: Comission launches the adoption of its adequacy decision on Japan, concerning international data flows, between E.U. and Japan.
