Joe Biden takes the narrowest lead in Wisconsin

Posted on by

first_imgNote, there is a roughly 10,000-vote gain in Kenosha that isn’t reflected in these numbers. ThWisconsin’s Democratic Party Chair tweeted this several hours ago:xAbsentee ballots are still being tallied in Milwaukee, Kenosha, and other cities. Based on everything we’ve seen, those ballots will decisively favor Biden. Green Bay hasn’t reported *any* results yet. When all votes are counted, we’re confident that Joe Biden will win Wisconsin.— Ben Wikler (@benwikler) November 4, 2020- Advertisement – xI’ve been talking about this for days, weeks, months: the *scope* of the shift between mail-in & Election Day ballots is unlike the stuff you’re used to seeing on Election Nights. We just saw it in Kenosha, maybe momentarily in Milwaukee, & also makes MI & PA tricky to assess. https://t.co/DYp5oTd4YX— Taniel (@Taniel) November 4, 2020- Advertisement – Milwaukee is mostly in. Kenosha will be +9,600 votes. Green Bay will add to Biden’s margin, since 32,000 absentee ballots remain uncounted. Update: This is the Kenosha results, which weirdly haven’t been posted by the AP. Maybe because it’s 2 am PT. xBREAKING: after all three machines tabulated 19,700- Biden 10,103-Trump The absentee ballots in Kenosha are not enough to take over the county for Biden. Final results should be on the county website soon— Cassidy Williams (@CassidyWtv) November 4, 2020- Advertisement – This isn’t over. But things are looking up. center_img And what we’ve seen here, we’ll see in Michigan and Pennsylvania as well xBased on my replies, I don’t think people have fully internalized how Democratic these mail and absentee ballots will be in MI/PA/WI. It’s going to be close, but these ballots will be overwhelmingly Democratic— Nate Cohn (@Nate_Cohn) November 4, 2020 – Advertisement –last_img read more

Biden’s Dogs to Return Presidential Pets to the White House

Posted on by

first_imgUpdated Nov. 8, 2020, 4:35 p.m. ET In 2016, Lois Pope, a philanthropist for veterans and animals in Palm Beach, Fla., said she had offered Mr. Trump a goldendoodle puppy named Patton, after George Patton, the World War II general that Mr. Trump has said he admires, The Washington Post reported.- Advertisement – President Trump was the first president in more than a century not to have a pet of any kind, Andrew Hager, the historian-in-residence at the Presidential Pet Museum, said.In 2008, the Biden family got a German shepherd puppy from a breeder after Mr. Biden was elected vice president, according to Politico. The Bidens named the dog Champ because Mr. Biden’s father had told him growing up, “Get up, champ,” when his life was challenging. At a February 2019 rally in El Paso, Mr. Trump said that he didn’t have a dog because he didn’t have time, and felt it would be “phony” for him to get one for political reasons. President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. is expected to restore a time-honored tradition of having a presidential pet at the White House.Starting in January, the Biden family’s two German shepherds, Champ and Major, will roam the executive residence.- Advertisement – “You do love your dogs, don’t you?” Mr. Trump said. “I wouldn’t mind having one, honestly, but I don’t have any time. How would I look walking a dog on the White House lawn?”Mr. Biden’s dog Major reflects a broader trend of Americans adopting pets from shelters and how they feel about animal rights, Mr. Hager said.- Advertisement –center_img “In a way, I’ve made the argument that you can look at the history of Americans and animals by looking at the president and their pets,” he said.Mr. Biden occasionally posts about Champ and Major on social media.“No ruff days on the campaign trail when I have some Major motivation,” Mr. Biden wrote on Instagram last month. One of the oddest White House pets was a raccoon later named Rebecca that was sent to President Calvin Coolidge to be served at Thanksgiving dinner. In November 1926, Mr. Coolidge pardoned the raccoon and adopted it.Pets humanize the presidency and help people relate to their owners. Dogs make for cuddly presidential props and provide companionship when presidents make tough decisions, Ms. Pickens said.During President Richard M. Nixon’s vice-presidential bid in 1952, he weathered a financial-improprieties scandal, partly because he spoke about his dog, Checkers.President Herbert Hoover’s stuffy, stilted image improved when he humanized himself by releasing a photograph in which he held his German shepherd, King Tut.President Barack Obama and his family brought Bo, and then Sunny, Portuguese water dogs, into the White House. They were beloved, even after Sunny knocked down a 2-year-old visitor.“Americans have always had pets, so the White House has always had pets,” Ms. Pickens said. There was even a separate campaign called Dog Lovers for Joe. Its slogan: “Choose your humans wisely.”“Red state or Blue state, we all can agree on the power of dogs,” the website said. “It’s time we had a dog-lover back in the White House.”From the earliest days of the country’s formation, pets have been a tradition for presidents.President Theodore Roosevelt owned dozens of animals, including a one-legged rooster, snakes, guinea pigs, kangaroo rats and horses, said Jennifer B. Pickens, the author of “Pets at the White House.” – Advertisement –last_img read more

Child’s H9N2 flu case probably from birds

Posted on by

first_imgMar 28, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – Hong Kong officials concluded that a baby girl who was recently infected with H9N2 avian influenza—a strain believed to have pandemic potential—probably contracted it from birds, according to recent reports.A 9-month-old girl who was hospitalized with respiratory symptoms twice in recent weeks tested positive for an H9N2 infection Mar 20. The girl had only a mild illness but was treated in isolation at Princess Margaret Hospital, the Hong Kong Department of Health reported in a Mar 22 statement. At the time of her second hospitalization she had respiratory syncytial virus, the statement said.Dr. Thomas Tsang, controller of the Hong Kong Centre for Health Protection, said tests had ruled out the possibility of human-to-human transmission in the girl’s case, according to a Mar 24 news release from Hong Kong’s Information Services Department.Tsang said genetic analysis of the H9N2 virus showed that it was entirely of avian origin, suggesting that the child contracted it directly from a bird, the release said. Because the girl had no contact with wild birds before her illness, she may have caught the virus at a bird market that she visited several times with her family, Tsang said.He also said tests on respiratory specimens from a healthcare worker and three children who were in the same hospital cubicle with the baby in early March tested negative for H9 viruses, and her family had no symptoms.Meanwhile, leading virologist Robert Webster warned this week that H9N2 is an “insidious” virus that needs close monitoring because it could trigger an outbreak in humans, according to a Mar 27 Bloomberg News report.H9N2 is far less known than the deadly Asian strain of H5N1 virus, which has killed at least 169 people and millions of poultry in Asia and Africa in the past few years. But Webster told Bloomberg, “H9N2 is an insidious virus. This is the one that’s far more dangerous in some ways. It doesn’t get much attention because it doesn’t kill chickens and doesn’t kill humans.”He said H9N2 can spread among pigs and infects chickens without making them sick. On the “hit list” of viruses, he added, “H5N1 is at [the] top, and H9N2 is right behind. Then come H7N7 and H2N2.”At least three cases of H9N2 illness, all of them mild, have occurred in Hong Kong children in recent years. Two girls were infected in 1999 and a 5-year-old boy had the virus in 2003.Robert L. Atmar, MD, a Baylor College of Medicine professor who has participated in clinical trials of an H9N2 vaccine, said human H9N2 illnesses may be less rare than the record suggests. Seroprevalence studies in China in the 1990s found H9 antibodies in 2% to 3% of the population, which suggests that some cases are missed, he told CIDRAP News via e-mail.Atmar, a professor in the Departments of Medicine and of Molecular Virology and Microbiology, also commented that the finding of a case in a 9-month-old child was “a little surprising unless she was toddling around the market. Usually, cases of avian influenza have followed close contact with infected poultry. H9N2 viruses are common in bird markets.”See also:Mar 20 CIDRAP News story “Baby in Hong Kong infected with H9N2 avian flu”Journal of Clinical Microbiology report on Hong Kong H9N2 case in 2003last_img read more

FLU CONFERENCE COVERAGE New disease-control rules follow reminders of risks

Posted on by

first_imgJun 18, 2007 – TORONTO (CIDRAP News) – Ten years after H5N1 avian influenza first began to raise fears of a potential pandemic, the world has a stronger set of tools to contain that virus and similar threats, but also a fresh awareness of humanity’s vulnerability to fast-spreading diseases, experts said yesterday at an international conference on flu. Heymann said the old rules “were actually a very passive system” and “a system which countries did not adhere to. Very few countries would report diseases under the International Health Regulations because when they reported those [three] diseases, or any other diseases for that matter, they were penalized with decreased trade and decreased tourism.” “We really are not much further ahead today than we were in 1918,” Dr. David Heymann, the WHO’s assistant director-general for communicable diseases, said in the conference’s keynote address. “We don’t have the vaccines we need. . . . We have some antivirals. But we do have one thing that we did not have in 1918, and that is the International Health Regulations, that now provide for proactive collective action for the H5N1 threat to global public health security.” The Options for the Control of Influenza Conference takes place in Toronto this week on the 10th anniversary of the first human cases of H5N1 flu, which were discovered in Hong Kong between May and December 1997, and one month after the multi-country odyssey of an Atlanta lawyer infected with an almost untreatable form of tuberculosis. The new rules also encourage countries to enforce disease control at their borders while respecting the rights of international travelers. And they reinforce countries’ responsibility to report and contain disease by allowing states to look over each other’s fences: For the first time, the WHO will accept reports of outbreaks not only from national governments but also from third parties ranging from Internet search engines to other states. During the 2003 SARS outbreak, for instance, Southeast Asia lost an estimated $18 billion in gross domestic product and possibly $60 billion in revenues and demand, Heymann said. The new rules, which were enacted in 2005 and became effective Jun 15, update an earlier and much weaker set of regulations that have been in force since 1969. In a change from the earlier rules—which emphasized control of only cholera, plague, and yellow fever—they commit WHO members to monitoring all potential public health threats, and particularly emphasize smallpox, polio, SARS, and novel flu strains, including H5N1. “It is important to maintain vigilance and not get so focused on one threat, like H5N1, that we don’t miscue on the emergence and virulence of another,” Dr. David Butler-Jones, Canada’s chief public health officer, said at the conference opener. He called the XDR TB patient’s four-country odyssey “a stark reminder of our collective vulnerability to communicable diseases. . . . The world seems to continue to be smaller, with diseases having no respect for borders, cultures or politics.” See also: Conference attendees said the porousness of borders to disease has been sharply underlined by two recent events: the emergence on the Wales-England border of an H7N2 strain of avian flu that infected at least four humans and killed a number of poultry despite being judged “low pathogenic,” and the saga of Andrew Speaker, who detoured through several countries so that he could obtain treatment in the United States for his newly diagnosed case of extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR TB). The new regulations improve on the old not only by emphasizing more diseases but also by committing states to building up their public health infrastructure so they can detect and respond to outbreaks, and to maintaining real-time surveillance of health information so that it can be transmitted to the WHO within 24 hours. But the conference’s opening ceremonies yesterday evening also came 2 days after the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) new International Health Regulations took effect. The voluntary contract marks the first time that the WHO’s 193 member states have agreed to immediately acknowledge and attempt to control any public health emergencies—in their own country or any other territory—that could provoke international concern.

H1N1 FLU BREAKING NEWS: Global tally tops 50K, novel H1N1 preponderance, quarantine risk in China, young as vaccine priority, grant to develop flu drug

Posted on by

first_imgJun 22, 2009Global tally of novel H1N1 cases exceeds 50,000The World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) count of novel H1N1 influenza cases today reached 52,160, nearly 8,000 more than the last count on Jun 19. The WHO listed the death toll as 231, up from 180 as of 3 days ago. Five countries are new to the list today: Algeria, Bangladesh, Brunei Darussalam, Fiji, and Slovenia. Media reports said that Ethiopia and Iran also have reported their first cases, all in people who were recently in the United States.[WHO update 52]Nearly all influenza A viruses in US are novel H1N1The novel H1N1 influenza virus accounted for 98% of all influenza A viruses that were subtyped in the United States in the week of Jun 6-13, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported on Jun 19. Only 0.2% of isolates were influenza B. The CDC said overall flu activity declined but remained above normal for this time of year, with 11 states reporting widespread activity. The death of one child was linked to the novel virus.[CDC flu surveillance report]US warns travelers of risk of quarantine in ChinaThe US State Department warned on Jun 19 that travelers to China may be quarantined for 7 days if they arrive with a fever or flu-like symptoms. Chinese authorities target travelers with even slightly elevated temperatures if they come from areas with novel H1N1 cases, plus people sitting near them, the statement said. It also said the US has received reports of children being separated from parents and travelers being held in unsuitable quarantine conditions with poor drinking water and food.Flu cases shutter muscular dystrophy group’s summer campsThe Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) has canceled its remaining summer camps after 11 children at camps in two states got sick with novel H1N1 infections, the group said in a Jun 19 statement. The MDA said children who attend the camps have weakened respiratory muscles, which puts them in a high-risk flu group. The CDC consulted on and agreed with the cancellation of the MDA’s remaining 47 camps, which were set to host 2,500 children.[Jun 19 MDA press release]Canada sets vaccine priority sights on younger peopleAs the Public Health Agency of Canada works on its priority list for the novel H1N1 vaccine, people aged 5 to 40 and those living in aboriginal communities may be at the top of the list, Canwest News Service (CNS) reported today. Officials said the pandemic strain, unlike seasonal flu, is striking mainly children and young adults. Though older people appear to have some immunity to the virus, immunizing their grandchildren may provide an extra measure of protection, an expert said.[Jun 22 CNS story]Company wins grant to develop RNA-based novel flu treatmentAVI Biopharma, based in Portland, Ore., announced yesterday that it has received a contract of up to $5.1 million from the US Department of Defense to develop one or more RNA-based drugs to treat novel H1N1 flu. In addition to identifying potential drug targets and lead and backup drug candidates, the contract supports the production of testing material for animal studies. The company said its RNA-based drugs use proprietary technology that targets messenger and premessenger RNA.last_img read more

Floating houses new accommodation offer in Pula

Posted on by

first_img“Croatia has one of the most beautiful coasts in the world and our idea was to allow guests who arrive on that coast to stay, not only in the first row to the sea, as they could before, but also in the first row at sea. Floating houses have long been a common way to have a pleasant stay on the water all over the world, so we do not discover any ‘hot water’, but only open the possibility to enjoy your stay on the Adriatic in the same way.”, Sebastian Selan, director and one of the founders of the company 3maran, told Glas Istre. Floating houses are a project of the Slovenian company 3maran, whose “sea” apartments are already part of the offer in the marina Punat on Krk, Slovenian Portorož and Italian Rimini. From now on, cottages are also available in Marina Veruda, where the first four, out of a total of ten planned, floating apartments, have been set up in recent days. Source / photo: Glas Istre; 3maran In Pula Marina Veruda, a new tourist offer was presented – floating houses. Namely, these are apartments that allow their visitors to rest on the sea surface, and with the complete comfort they would have in facilities on the coast, reports Glas Istre. In any case, this is an interesting tourist product with which Marina Veruda expands its offer, and floating houses will surely attract the interest of many visitors to Pula and the Veruda Channel. Floating house in Marina Veruda / Photo: 3maran He adds that the trend of living, and even living, in floating houses is already recognized around the world. “In the canals of Amsterdam, on the Danube in Vienna or on the river Seine in the middle of Paris, this has been a common thing for a very long time and it was actually very easy to imagine a similar story on the Adriatic coast. Before entering the entrepreneurial waters, I was the director of the marina in Portorož for seven years, and it was in that marina that we completed our first project, ie in 2016 we set up the first floating houses. Today, there are a total of 41 such houses and their occupancy is 95 percent in the summer months, or about 65 percent throughout the year because the climate allows it. After that, we realized the project in Italy, ie the marina Portoverde in Rimini, and our first floating houses in Croatia were set up two years ago in the marina Punat on the island of Krk”, Explained Selan.last_img read more

Bild: Croatia is among the eight countries that German tourists could visit this summer

Posted on by

first_imgThere are also various other factors, from fear of travel, declining spending and financial power, lack of vacations, etc.… Measures are slowly being planned or are already being relaxed in each country, which means there will be a strong narrative of each country (buy and travel locally) in order to start the local economy as soon as possible, which is currently an imperative. It is in this segment that the Germans are very much aware of the need to strengthen the local economy. Of course, one should be aware and realistic, until a vaccine or cure is found, we cannot expect a recovery in tourism, which will surely last from that moment for 2-3 years. In the current situation, we also cannot expect large tourist traffic and tourist activity, but we should certainly look at it and be optimistic, ie do our best to catch some tourist traffic. That is why we need to react quickly and be ready, listen to the situation in every market and be proactive. Of course, to emphasize once again, one should be optimistic and do everything to activate the tourist market, as always, but one should also be aware of the realistic framework. This tourist year needs to be crossed, at least when it comes to some big tourist numbers, and if the situation gives us a chance, of course we need to embrace it and do everything in our power. But also our long coast has too many places and coves for distance as well as smaller tourist destinations. Certainly the demand will be for houses and villas with swimming pools, especially those in rural areas and away from city centers, as well as active holidays and the interior. Certainly, such texts and advertisements in the most widely read and extremely influential German newspapers are a big plus. And just a great foundation, if and when the situation is further improved in an optimistic scenario, to direct promotional budgets to save from the tourist season what to save that. / / / A VIEW FROM GERMANY: IF YOU TRAVEL ACROSS BORDERS AT ALL, THE GOAL WILL BE A EUROPEAN COUNTRY But we must also be aware of the question of when and if it will open borders. As Capak recently stated, borders will be opened only if the situation in other countries is stable, ie if it is better than in our country. Certainly, regional travel will be in trend in the coming years, not so far from your home. Here, as a car destination, we certainly have an advantage. Also, after more than a month of quarantine, self-isolation, psychological fear and negative news, of course, everyone has a very strong desire to travel, to finally “breathe”. But what will be the real rational desire to travel when it comes during that time we will see. One is desire and the other is reality. However, fear is the strongest and the main opponent of tourism. / / / GERMANY AS OUR MAIN BROADCASTING MARKET, RECOVERY EXPECTED ONLY IN AUGUST OR SEPTEMBER Also, in addition to Bild, today it is German state television ZDF in the morning program reported on Croatia, and they released and staff from the new CNTB campaign #CroatiaLongDistanceLove. BILD: So will Croatia leave our vacation Factors that will play a role Prema article the most widely read German newspaper picture, Croatia is one of eight countries that German tourists could visit this summer. This fear is further expressed for families with children. And that’s why it’s important to be close to some hospital center, and the islands in this story are extra risky, because of the distance and without a direct road connection to the mainland. Despite the uncertain situation in which it is not known whether tourist trips can be realized, Bild singled out eight countries that could be desirable destinations for German tourists this summer, namely: Croatia, Greece, Austria, Switzerland, Tunisia, Sweden, Denmark and Iceland. Namely, Bild believes that these countries have responded well to the pandemic and that they could be ready for the arrival of tourists by the summer. The situation is changing from day to day, and we should react accordingly. At the moment, no one can say for sure what the weather will be like in September, and how the whole coronavirus situation will develop. Admittedly, epidemiologists expect a second wave of spread sometime in September, but for now, scientists and epidemiologists from around the world still have too many questions and assumptions and too few answers. / / / ISLIVING THE MOOD OF AUSTRIAN TOURISTS AND THE IMPACT ON THE SUMMER SEASON IN CROATIA Until May 03, a warning to citizens not to travel abroad is in force in Germany, and by the end of April it will be decided whether the recommendations will be extended. Certainly, Switzerland and Austria are also counting on German tourists, who in the context of the current need for social distance, active vacation, nature, ecology have a strong trump card. As well as the fact that the destinations are closer than us. BILD: Wo man im sommer trotz Corona Urlaub machen kann Also, Bild ranked the chances of tourist trips in these countries, and Croatia and Greece are in the category of “good chances”. Austria and Switzerland are in the “very likely” holiday category, while other countries are in the “likely” category. It is stated that Croatia introduced strict measures in the fight against the virus in a timely manner, which was a good decision that paid off. Director of the CNTB in Germany Romeo Draghicchio believes that in Croatia there are many accommodations in which it is possible to maintain a distance between guests. “Croatia is in a good position due to its accessibility by car via Austria and Slovenia, and if these countries open their borders, air flights are also possible.Draghiccho points out. last_img read more
