Marcus Rashford welcomes Government U-turn on free school meals at Christmas | Football News

first_imgEngland and Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has welcomed the Government’s U-turn over providing free meals to disadvantaged children during the Christmas holidays.Prime Minister Boris Johnson phoned Rashford on Saturday to alert him to the decision to lay on £170m of extra funding for the measure.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Marcus Rashford muralImage:Two young girls pose for a photograph at a mural of Marcus Rashford created by Artist Akse Sky Sports’ Martin Tyler says Marcus Rashford’s campaigning for free meals for school children is proof of how footballers can use their power in the right way. “There is still so much more to do, and my immediate concern is the approximate 1.7 million children who miss out on free school meals, holiday provision and Healthy Start vouchers because their family income isn’t quite low enough, but the intent the Government have shown today is nothing but positive and they should be recognised for that.“The steps made today will improve the lives of near 1.7 million children in the UK over the next 12 months, and that can only be celebrated.”The funds will pay for the Covid Winter Grant Scheme to support families over the season while the Holiday Activities and Food programme will be extended to cover the Easter, summer and Christmas breaks in 2021, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) announced.- Advertisement – The 23-year-old received the call after he played in United’s 3-1 Premier League win against Everton at Goodison Park.Rashford said he was “so proud” of those who had united behind his campaign and that he was “overwhelmed by the outpouring of empathy and understanding”, promising his supporters to “fight for the rest of my life” to end child hunger in the UK.In a statement, he added: “Following the game today, I had a good conversation with the Prime Minister to better understand the proposed plan, and I very much welcome the steps that have been taken to combat child food poverty in the UK. As part of the package, Healthy Start payments, which help expectant mothers and those with young children on low incomes and in receipt of benefits to buy fresh fruit and vegetables, are set to rise from £3.10 to £4.25 a week from April 2021.

Hate crimes continue to rise in America under Trump, but police increasingly won’t report them

first_imgIt also observed that, while recent bias-motivated mass killers have been radicalized young adults such as 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, the El Paso killer, a recent multi-decade longitudinal University of Maryland study found that these perpetrators, with a median age of 36, are older relative to other violent hate offenders. The Maryland BIAS study further found that these mass killers are more likely to act alone, be married, have a military service record, higher educational achievement, and a violent criminal history.Of all the single categories of hate crimes, white supremacist/far-right-extremist-motivated homicides saw the greatest increase for the third consecutive year in 2019. “These racist killers dominated the overall category of ‘extremist motivated’ homicides with a total higher than that of all extremist killings combined for 2018,” the CSUSB report said. The problem is exacerbated by an increasingly partisan conservativism in police cultures, manifested by the open hostility of many officers to civil-rights groups such as Black Lives Matter critical of their treatment of black arrestees, as well as their continuing use of disproportionate force to handle such protests. This has created increasing tensions in communities such as Portland, Oregon, where police have lost credibility for their ongoing failures to take hate crimes seriously, as well as to treat leftist protesters with increasing brutality.The Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino, examined the 2019 statistics and found that, if anything, the trends toward increasing personal attacks (as opposed to property or other crimes) and rising lethality observed previously has, if anything, worsened:The 2019 increases in hate crime were far more precipitous among the most violent offenses—homicides and assaults; those directed toward certain target groups, like Jews and Latinos; and in some of the nation’s largest cities. These 2019 overall hate crime totals represent an increase of 194 incidents or 2.72% over the prior year and the most since 2008, when there were 7,783.… Of person directed crimes, FBI hate homicides rose most sharply to a record 51, more than double 2018 levels, as single assailant mass domestic terror attacks by white supremacists became increasingly more lethal. Last year was the third consecutive annual rise in a series of sharp increases in hate homicides enumerated by the FBI.The increasingly lethal nature of hate crimes is reflected in the incidents themselves. The August 2019 attack on Latinos in a Walmart store in El Paso, Texas, left 23 dead, making it the most lethal single hate-based homicide event since the FBI began tallying such events in the early 1990s.- Advertisement – A ProPublica report in 2017 explained in great detail why and how America fails at accurately gathering complete information about hate crimes in this country. It begins with a police culture that is skeptical of the laws and the need to enforce them and continues through the cold realities that vulnerable minorities—particularly immigrants, LGBTQ folk, and most people of color—fear reporting these crimes because they fear becoming victims all over again. They fear retaliation from the perpetrators, they fear the police and how their cases will be handled, they fear broader social and legal repercussions simply for being drawn into the world of law enforcement (especially LGBTQ people and immigrants), and they fear being accused of faking the crimes—which has become a common refrain among right-wing pundits seeking to undermine concern about these crimes.“The total severity of the impact and damage caused by hate crimes cannot be fully measured without complete participation in the FBI’s data collection process,” ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said. “We are working with our partners to improve hate crime data reporting. While some of the increase in 2019 may be the product of better reporting in some jurisdictions, it is critical to improve training at local law enforcement agencies across the country. We also need to remove the barriers that too often prevent people in marginalized communities—the individuals most likely to suffer hate crimes—from reporting hate-based incidents in the first instance. In this pivotal moment in our national conversation about the importance of justice for communities of color, religious minorities, and the LGBTQ+ community, we must make combating hate crimes a top priority.”The ProPublica report found that only 12 states require police, during academy training, to learn how to identify and investigate hate crimes. Moreover, very few agencies provide training after officers leave the academy.- Advertisement – This marks the second straight year in which participation by law enforcement in providing the data—a voluntary reporting effort encouraged by federal statute—has declined.  The FBI reports that 86 percent of participating agencies failed to report a single hate crime in 2019, including about 70 cities with populations over 100,000. Only about 14 percent—just over 2,000 out of 15,000 participating agencies—reported any hate crimes at all.Hate-crimes statistics are already badly flawed because of the continuing issues of underreportage and underenforcement of bias crimes. While annual reports show relatively steady annual numbers in the 6,000-8,000 range, experts estimate that the actual numbers of such crimes is around 50,000.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

WHO reports 130 suspected plague cases in Congo

first_imgMar 15, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – The World Health Organization (WHO) said today it has found 130 suspected cases of plague, 57 of them fatal, in its ongoing investigation of an outbreak in the northeastern Congo. In its previous update on Mar 9, the agency had reported 114 cases, including 54 deaths. The WHO team has checked on 363 contacts of suspected case-patients. The team is continuing to trace contacts and analyze clinical specimens, and patients are being treated in isolation centers, the agency said. Pneumonic plague is the rarest form of plague, constituting only about 2% of cases, according to the WHO. The disease spreads via aerosolized bacteria and can be fatal as soon as 48 hours after symptoms appear, but it can be treated with antibiotics. Rodents are the natural reservoir for plague bacteria, which more typically spread to humans via flea bites or contact with infected animal carcasses. Mar 15 WHO statementhttp://www.who.int/csr/don/2005_03_15/en/ The WHO originally was concerned that infected miners fleeing the area might spread the disease over a wide region. Later reports indicated that the cases were mostly confined to the war-torn Zobia area, but today’s update said nothing about the geographic extent of the outbreak. Feb 18 CIDRAP News story, “Pneumonic plague outbreak in Congo sparks WHO response”center_img Mar 9 WHO statementhttp://www.who.int/csr/don/2005_03_09/en/ The WHO sent a team to Zobia in Oriental province in late February following reports that pneumonic plague had killed at least 61 people and might have sickened hundreds more. Poor sanitation in the Zobia diamond mine, which employs 7,000, was thought to have helped spread the disease. See also: The latest case numbers “are based on the current situation and a retrospective analysis of cases since 15 December 2004,” the WHO said. The statement didn’t specify that all the cases were pneumonic plague, but it said, “No cases of bubonic plague have been detected.” CIDRAP overview of plaguelast_img read more

Canada reaches dead end in BSE probe

first_img About a week before its death, the Charolais crossbred cow showed neurologic signs including ataxia and tremors and became nonambulatory. The producer treated the cow for milk fever before it died. Though the postmortem examination revealed the likely cause of death was peritonitis, the case met criteria for Canada’s national BSE surveillance program, and samples were obtained for testing. The case, first reported Aug 23, was in an Alberta beef cow estimated to be between 8 and 10 years old, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) said in a Dec 18 report. See also: In July, Canada announced plans to extend a ban on potentially infective cattle parts (specified risk materials) to all animal feeds, not just feed for ruminants. Of 56 possible farm origins, investigators ruled out 43 on the basis of the cow’s profile and the farms’ management practices. Investigators couldn’t determine which of the 13 remaining farms the cow was from, so they were unable to trace its herd mates or locate potential sources of contaminated feed. The CFIA said more than 90% of cows aged 8 to 10 years have already left the cattle population. Five of Canada’s BSE cases have occurred in 2006, from a total of 8 since May 2003. In three of the 2006 cases, the cows were born after the 1997 feed ban became effective.center_img The BSE agent was present in limited instances in northern Alberta from 1996 to 1998, which includes the estimated first year of the animal’s life, when it was most susceptible to the disease, the CFIA said. The cow would have been born and exposed before Canada’s 1997 ban on feeding cattle protein to cattle or during the early stages of implementation, when contaminated material could have remained on farms and at feed mills. Investigators found that the cow was not born at the farm but was part of a herd assembled in 2001 and was purchased within the previous 5 years. The farm’s records didn’t conclusively document a transaction for the cow, which could have occurred before rules requiring identification of transported animals took effect. Dec 18 CFIA investigation report Dec 21, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – Government investigators were unable to determine where Canada’s latest cow infected with bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) was born, making it impossible to tell how the animal was exposed to the disease or find other cows that might have been exposed, the Canadian government said this week.last_img read more

WHO says H1N1 vaccine process won’t sacrifice safety

first_imgAug 6, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – The World Health Organization (WHO) said today that the fast-tracking of vaccines for pandemic H1N1 influenza won’t compromise safety, while acknowledging that clinical data will be limited when the first doses are administered.”The public needs to be reassured that regulatory procedures in place for the licensing of pandemic vaccines, including procedures for expediting regulatory approval, are rigorous and do not compromise safety or quality controls,” the agency said in a statement.In a news teleconference, the WHO’s Dr. Marie-Paule Kieny said the first results of H1N1 vaccine clinical trials are expected in the first half of September, and some countries may start using the vaccines the same month, if their regulatory agencies approve. Trials are under way in China, Australia, the United Kingdom, Germany, and the United States, she said.The trials are mainly designed to determine whether one or two doses of vaccine will be needed to induce an immune response, while providing some safety data.Kieny, director of the WHO Initiative for Vaccine Research, noted that the United States may treat H1N1 vaccines the same way it handles the switching of viral strains in seasonal flu vaccines, which does not require clinical trial data for licensing. European regulators do require a clinical trial for a strain change in a seasonal vaccine, she said, but manufacturers that have previously filed data for a “mock-up” pandemic vaccine may get approval for an H1N1 vaccine before submitting clinical trial data.The WHO statement said some media reports have voiced concern about the safety of H1N1 vaccines. The agency said vaccines need to be made available quickly and in large quantities to fight the pandemic. That didn’t happen in the 1957 and 1968 pandemics, when vaccines arrived too late to be of much help during the height of the outbreaks.Better yields expectedKieny said a better-yielding vaccine seed strain may be on the way to replace the strains now in use, which have yielded disappointingly small amounts for inactivated vaccines. The WHO’s collaborating centers have been working to develop strains that grow better in eggs, “and the latest result we’ve heard as of this week is that at least one of the strains seems to be promising and seems to get equivalent yields to the ones the manufacturers have for seasonal vaccines,” she said. “It seems we’ve found a way to get around this problem.”She gave no details on where the improved strain was developed, but a Canadian Press report published yesterday said it was produced by Britain’s National Institute for Biological Standards and Controls.Kieny declined to make any predictions about global H1N1 vaccine production capacity. She said an earlier projection of up to 94 million doses per week was a best-case scenario, and the WHO needs more data before making any new predictions. “I prefer to give a response when the yields are known and the immunogenicity is known,” she said.Regulatory pathwaysConcerning regulatory issues, the WHO statement said that some pandemic vaccines are not regarded as entirely new, because they build on seasonal vaccine technology, established testing procedures, and a large body of safety data. “In such cases, approval procedures are similar to those applied to ‘strain changes’ made each year when seasonal vaccines are modified to match circulating viruses in the northern and southern hemispheres.”Kieny noted that the US Food and Drug Administration expects to use this approach with H1N1 vaccines based on the same technology and processes as seasonal vaccines. “For those pandemic vaccines that will be like a strain change, with H1N1 instead of another strain, FDA has decided they’ll treat this as a normal strain change, and therefore vaccine will be registered without clinical trials,” she said.However, that won’t be the case with vaccines containing dose-sparing adjuvants, she noted. Because the United States, unlike Europe, has never licensed an adjuvanted flu vaccine, US regulators “will request to review full clinical development,” she said.The US government has ordered millions of doses of two different adjuvants, and officials have said that adjuvanted vaccines could be used under a special emergency authorization.The European Union requires small clinical trials for strain changes in seasonal flu vaccines, Kieny said. But she noted that in view of the threat of H5N1 avian flu, the EU set up a process allowing manufacturers to develop prototype, or mockup, H5N1 vaccines and submit data, with the understanding that when a pandemic emerged, the pandemic strain could be substituted for the prototype strain.Manufacturers that filed mockup vaccine data “can present to the regulatory agency all the documentation for the H1N1 vaccine, and as previously agreed already in 2007, obtain a registration without clinical trials,” she said.However, she added that all manufacturers will conduct clinical trials and submit the data as soon as possible, with the earliest expected in September.”Time constraints mean that clinical data at the time when pandemic vaccines are first administered will inevitably be limited,” the WHO statement said. “Further testing of safety and effectiveness will need to take place after administration of the vaccine has begun.”Safety issues inevitableThe agency said safety issues will inevitably arise during mass vaccination efforts. “For example, adverse events too rare to show up even in a large clinical trial may become apparent when very large numbers of people receive a pandemic vaccine.”Such was the case in the swine flu vaccination campaign in 1976, when several hundred people, out of more than 40 million vaccinated, suffered Guillain-Barre syndrome, a paralytic condition. But Kieny said such events are less likely today: “The vaccines we have now are much purer and the quality control and lab testing on today’s vaccines is much better than it was 30 years ago.”Kieny said the WHO has no special concerns about the safety of adjuvanted H1N1 vaccines. “We’ve reviewed the safety of adjuvanted vaccines as they’ve been tested for H5N1, and more than 40 million doses of adjuvanted vaccine have been used in Europe already,” she said.But in response to a question, she said there has been no experience in the use of adjuvanted flu vaccines in pregnant women, who are a priority group for H1N1 vaccination. The WHO’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE), she said, recommended in July that pregnant women should receive unadjuvanted vaccine where possible, but that an adjuvanted vaccine could be used if necessary.In other comments, Kieny said the WHO is discussing with manufacturers how to provide enough free or reduced-price vaccine to cover healthcare workers in all developing countries. She noted that donations of 100 million and 50 million doses have been pledged so far.See also: WHO page with access to press briefing audio files and transcripthttp://www.who.int/mediacentre/multimedia/swineflupressbriefings/en/index.htmlAug 6 WHO statement on safety of pandemic vaccineshttp://www.who.int/csr/disease/swineflu/notes/h1n1_safety_vaccines_20090805/en/index.htmlAug 6 WHO statement on pandemic vaccine manufacturing process and timelinehttp://www.who.int/csr/disease/swineflu/notes/h1n1_vaccine_20090806/en/index.htmllast_img read more

Nedo Pinezić: Load the donkey until it falls to its knees

first_imgIn Article 2 the period of the main season is stated as the period from 1.4. to 30.9. This is about expanding the main season which cannot be justified by anything.  In a few more days, it is possible to get involved in the public debate through eConsultation ( RULEBOOK ON THE MINIMUM AND MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF TOURIST FEE ) regarding the proposal of the text of the Ordinance on the lowest and highest amount of tourist tax. Instead of relieving the costs of doing business in a year in which we will fight for every guest and when there really is no one to work for, this move puts tourism in an even more unfavorable position. In Article 5/2 the amount of the flat-rate sojourn tax per bed is prescribed from at least HRK 350,00, which has been the highest so far, up to a maximum of HRK 1.000,00 per bed. Here, too, the same happens as with the payment of tourist tax per night, as stated in the remarks on Article 2. Adding to the income tax, this increase in the “lump sum” becomes too large. In general, a new increase in the tourist tax is unacceptable in the year when we record a decrease in arrivals, overnight stays and prices in May and the first half of July, ie in the period of calculation of the maximum tourist tax.. And it’s about big money. LOAD THE ASS UNTIL HE FALLS TO HIS KNEE It is also unacceptable to introduce the same amount of tourist tax for all tourist places regardless of their communal equipment and variety of services in the place.. (A place without a shop, without a parking lot, without arranged roads and sidewalks, without public lighting, etc. It is equated with the most developed places). With this, the tourist tax lost its original meaning (improving the living conditions of tourists) and turned into an ordinary tourist tax. Thus, the sojourn tax for all accommodation that is not in the current “A” tourist place, drastically increases. So far, we have had four levels of arrangement and equipment of the tourist place and four levels of the amount of sojourn tax, and everything has already become more expensive in 2019 compared to 2018. Let us remind you: the sojourn tax for 2019 has been increased from 8 to 10 kn in the main season and from 6 to 8 kn in the pre- and post-season in the “A” class, in the “B” class from 7 to 9 and 5 to 7 kn, in “C” class from 5,5 to 7 and from 4 to 5 kn and in “D” class from 4,5 to 5 and from 3 to 4 kn. As a rule, this is an increase of about 25%. The basic question remains: How and where is the money from the tourist tax spent and what are the results of spending that money? Judging by the start of this year’s main season, a good part of those funds was not invested wisely. So far, experience has shown that they are right. So what will the new levy look like for all tourist providers?center_img REMARKS DISCUSSION AT THE WRONG TIME This means that the largest minimum increase in the tourist tax will now be 5 kn per night, ie it will increase from 5 kn in the “D” class to a single, minimum 10 kn. That is a 100% increase. The total increase in the tourist tax from 2018 to 2020 will amount to 125%. In Article 5 the lump sum tourist tax for cruise ships in relation to the maximum passenger capacity is also given. For each class of ship capacity, a flat rate fee is prescribed according to the upper capacity limit, if the amount of HRK 10,00 per passenger is calculated. Published by: Nedo Pinezic / Photo: Pixabay.com In Article 2 it is also stated that the lowest amount of tourist tax is the one that has been the highest so far. Such an increase is not acceptable. The highest possible amount is again twice the stated increase in the double room as early as 1.4. amounts to almost 6 euros, or 40,00 kn for the highest increase, or 3 euros or 20 kn for keeping the lowest amount. Raising the amount of tourist tax for the period from 1.4. to 1.7. and from 1.9. to 30. 9. represents an excessive burden in the amount of the total price of tourist stay, which in that period is significantly lower than in the period 1.7. – 31.8. Such a proposal is not acceptable . Tourist tax can be calculated only per actual passenger as well as port tax, and according to the list of passengers. If it is HRK 10,00, then the product of the number of passengers and the amount of HRK 10,00 is the basis for paying the tourist tax. Most citizens, who are also concerned about the new regulation of the tourist tax, now have other priorities, and a good part of them do not believe that their remarks can change anything.last_img read more
