Was the coronavirus a false alarm? We easily submit to the authorities, says Holub

In his new book, Coronavirus: False Alarm, the country is considering the question of why countries could order their citizens to lock themselves up at home because of Covidid-19.

“If something is found that arouses fear in most of the population, it is very easy to control. And Czechs are too prone to submit to those who promise to protect them. It was not so easy in other countries. Dozens of courts have taken place in Austria, “Petr Holub explains one of the topics of the book, which he wrote on the basis of his articles.

According to the author, even the spring tightening of the economy was exaggerated from today’s point of view. “It was a waste of money. Most countries acknowledge that the damage was not worth it. We lost an amount equal to one tenth of the quarterly GDP of the Czech Republic in the order of hundreds of billions of crowns. What did we get for it? Nothing in exaggeration. Time to get rid of fear. “

According to Petr Holub, we are not much better prepared for the second wave than in March: “There is no rule based on the experience of the first wave. We will improvise again. First the veils in public transport, then in Prague, then in the regions, and we will wait to see what it will do. “

The vice president of Paraguay, Hugo Velázquez, launched this Saturday a message of firmness in front of the guerrilla Army of the Paraguayan People (EPP), who has kidnapped the former vice president Óscar Denis, betting on continuing to fight her until she achieves her total annihilation.

In a statement, the Government’s ‘number two’ has adopted a much more forceful position than the one held up to now by the president, Mario Abdo Benítez, who has not made public statements since Denis’ kidnapping took place just days after a major security operation against the EPP in which two minors allegedly relatives of guerrilla leaders died.

This is no time to be flexible with criminals in the North. It is playing for them when the idea of ​​withdrawing the Joint Task Force (JTF) from the field of armed violence is encouraged.”Said Velázquez, referring to the force made up of the military and police that fights against the guerrillas.

The vice president stressed that “here the enemy is the EPP and not the FTC“And although the latter has made” errors “,” these must be corrected while providing greater technical support “to its members, he defended. “More than ever, as a Paraguayan society, we must be strong” since “every state that was weak in the face of organized violence was defeated”.

“In our particular case, victory is to totally annihilate the EPP“Rem, arc Velázquez, who has insisted that” rather than trying to remove the public force from the area where the armed criminal group operates, sowing terrorism, our objective should be to provide our forces with the best logistics and technology in order to end the EPP and other armed criminals ”.

According to the vice president, the final and complete victory “will occur when that enemy of the misnamed EPP is defeated by the use of strategy, laws and the force that the State has to defend democracy and the right to social peace.

On the other hand, the newspaper ‘Últimas Hora’ announced that the president could travel to Concepción this Sunday, in order to closely follow the work that the FTC has been carrying out in the search for former vice president Denis, kidnapped on September 9 together to his driver, Adelio Mendoza, who was later released.

This would be the third time in less than two weeks that the head of state has traveled to the place to try to boost the morale of the military who participate in the operation, the newspaper highlighted, without official confirmation of the displacement at the moment.

The EPP had asked the family of the former vice president to deliver food, worth $ 2 million, to 40 indigenous communities in different departments. Family members delivered the food before Wednesday, the deadline set by the EPP to release Denis, but the guerrillas did not fulfill their end of the bargain.

Denis, 74, suffers from various health problems such as hypertension and diabetes, which require him to take daily medication. Concern for his state of health has worsened in recent days after knowing the positive result for Mendoza’s coronavirus, who was with him during captivity. So far, the only information available about Denis during the kidnapping is the account given by the indigenous man after his release.

Mendoza, who has already returned to his community, told Denis’s family that they were walking through the mountains for two days and that the former vice president suffered a cramp that forced them to stop so that the driver could give him a massage and be able to continue the march .

Also that during the first night they were offered blankets, but no food, and it was not until the next day that they were given peanuts and milk. The kidnapping of Denis and Mendoza came a week after a questioned operation between the Joint Task Force (JTF) and the EPP, in which two 11-year-old Argentine girls, alleged daughters of some guerrillas, were killed.

Origin of the first Quebec strains of COVID revealed: Le Bulletel

and immediately 2020

Source: INSPQ

The Institut national de santé publique du Québec and the McGill University Genome Center announced the preliminary results of the analysis of the genetic sequence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus responsible for COVID-19 in the first Quebec cases. According to this study, the virus entered Quebec during the spring break through 247 people.

This research indicates that the epidemic in Quebec has its origin mainly in Europe and America, but not in Asia. “Most of the early introductions of the virus in Quebec have not given rise to lasting transmissions,” explains Sandrine Moreira, responsible for the coordination of genomics and bioinformatics at the Laboratoire de santé publique du Québec. However, the people who returned to Quebec after the spring break ultimately contributed to the emergence of the thousands of cases that were subsequently identified, or nearly 60,000 infected people. “

The INSPQ and McGill team analyzed 734 high-quality genomic sequences from samples collected between mid-February and April 1, 2020. “We used cutting-edge technologies for the sequencing of the SARS-CoV- virus. 2, ”explains Ioannis Ragoussis, Professor in the Department of Human Genetics at McGill,“ this confirms us in the quality of the data produced ”. These sequences were compared with 21,935 sequences from international sources or from other Canadian provinces from the same period available in the reference database GISAID (Global Initiative on Sharing All Influenza Data). “The analysis of this gigantic dataset required several days of calculation,” says Éric Fournier, bioinformatician at the Public Health Laboratory and co-first author on this study. Researchers identified the geographic origin of Quebec strains using the Ancestral State Reconstruction (ASR) phylogenetic method. “This phylogenetic analysis technique makes it possible to go back virtually in time to identify the common ancestor of each Quebec sequence and international sequences, and thus to identify their origin” explains the co-first author Carmen Mural of the team of Jesse Shapiro, associate professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at McGill.

It should be remembered that this work makes it possible to support epidemiological public health investigations and to validate transmission links identified during field investigations. “These data underline the importance of public health measures,” adds Sandrine Moreira “with so few cases that can lead to such a wide transmission, it is important that everyone remains vigilant”

Heller “is no longer so convinced to sell” his shares in the U

It is the great doubt that exists in the U, especially in these days when there is no activity for the National Holidays: this Friday, September 25, the deadline for Carlos Heller to sell his shares in Azul Azul and the management and financial structure of the club change forever.

Or not? The truth is that nobody knows for sure, and in the circle close to the businessman they point out that the business is not completely closed yet.

If it is to bet, the sale is much more likely to occur than not. And that also raises questions about the future of the president Christian Aubert, leaders who arrived and are trusted by Heller, and even historical references who today have managerial positions, like Rodrigo Goldberg and Sergio Vargas.

And also about the fate of the first team led by Hernán Caputto, and that he could be living his last months in charge.

Is not the same…

Heller has been traveling for business between Chile and the United States, and takes advantage of the long flight hours to ponder the offer he has on the table to dispose of 63% of the shares he owns in the U to a private fund with Chilean and American investors .

According to La Tercera, doubts have grown in recent days. “He is no longer so convinced to sell, due to the sports rebound of the institution”they point out.

In fact, when the businessman decided to resign as president of the U and then sell his share package, the team was going through a serious football crisis, which had it on the verge of decline. But now it is second in the championship, just six points from the leading Catholic University. And on two more dates comes the University Classic.

“He considers that it is not the same to sell a team that is fighting not to lose one that is sub-leader of the Chilean championship”, adds the post.

Heller did not want to sell the property of the club of which he has been a fan since childhood to just anyone, and so he asked to know the identity of the buyers. You already know it, and you would be sure that the U will remain in the hands of people interested in the well-being of the team and the institution, and that they would arrive with an ambitious economic and sports plan.

But his doubts go the other way: How to leave now, when the club could end up winning a title?

This Friday the operator will put on sale its 10 MHz concession of the 1.9 GHz band.

Eleven months after the Supreme Court definitively forced the companies Movistar, Claro and Entel to return part of its spectrum for exceeding the 60 MHz limit, the Spanish capital firm decided to initiate compliance with the ruling and put its concession up for sale through a private tender that will start this Friday, September 25.

On October 28, 2019, the Supreme Court gave a series of options to the telecos to adjust to the regulations of the -now- old spectrum limits. And, among them, the possibility of putting some of its blocks up for sale. Movistar was the only one who took this path, in a process that was not easy for the operator, since on two occasions the Undersecretariat of Telecommunications (Subtel) rejected the bidding conditions for not complying with the General Law of the sector.

The company, for its part, was reluctant to start such a complex process, when the Covid-19 crisis was unleashed in Chile and the world and the possibility was being considered that no bidder would arrive for its 10 MHz block in the 1.9 GHz band, the frequency chosen for the release.

However, on the third attempt, Subtel gave the go-ahead and started the process, where they explain that this approval was also part of the Supreme Court and the Tribunal for the Defense of Free Competition (TDLC).

This Friday, September 25 at 5:00 p.m. the bidding process begins with the availability of the bases, where for an amount of $ 1,000,000 the companies They will be able to know its content and make inquiries until October 9.

A month later, on November 9, Movistar will give answers to the queries by the bidding conditions, while the receipt of Offers will be made between 12:00 hrs and 15:00 hrs on December 7, 2020.

Previously, Boyamin revealed, ‘King Maker’ was a figure who made Prosecutors Pinangki Sirna Malasari and Rahmat meet Joko Tjandra. Rahmat is known to have come from a private sector, who was often examined as a witness by the AGO regarding the Pinangki case.

In addition, the ‘King Maker’ also played a role in thwarting the review process (PK), which was proposed by Joko Tjandra in June 2020.

“The ‘King Maker’ is trying to cancel and dissolve the PK. So that, it is revealed in the DPR all kinds of things. The ‘King Maker’ is behind it all,” he said at the KPK Building, South Jakarta, Friday, September 18 2020.

Boyamin continued, “King Maker” also knew about the MA fatwa arrangement. However, Boyamin was reluctant to reveal who the ‘King Maker’ really was.

“Can law enforcers can or not. Can law enforcers now, can retire. But at least, the ‘King Maker’ was able to make the initial movement for the fatwa, to dissolve the next package. Because Pinangki broke up a partnership with Anita (Kolopaking) and finally Anita. then walk alone to take care of PK, “he said.

“So at least, he (King Maker) was happy and laughed when Anita’s PK package disbanded. And finally because it was busy, then (PK) was rejected because Joko Tjandra didn’t dare to enter (come to trial),” he continued.

L1mburg Central: project Healthy Primary School of the Future is over

Something must be done quickly about the health and lifestyle of children in primary schools. This is demonstrated by the Healthy Primary School of the Future project. In the Healthy Primary School, children receive healthy meals at school and more time is spent on play and exercise. For four years, researchers from Maastricht University have compared these children with children in regular schools. The results were announced on Monday. Project leader Maria Jansen is our guest at the table.

Abdominal Care
“I am particularly shocked by the large differences between healthy schools and the schools where we do nothing”, says project leader Maria Janssen. For example, we look at the waist circumference of children. At regular primary schools, the waist circumference is increasing, at the primary schools participating in the project, children remain in the healthy weight class. “

According to Jansen, the balance is getting more and more out of balance. Children need to eat healthier to avoid getting sick later on. “Doing nothing is not an option. If we do nothing, it will only get worse. Chronic conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular in particular are starting at an increasingly younger age. We have to do something about that. That is also good against the rising healthcare costs.”

Less bullying
The results of the project also show that children in healthy schools do not only have a healthier weight. The atmosphere in the classroom is also improving. And there is less bullying. “In healthy schools, pedagogical employees wait an hour and a half during the lunch break. Those are extra eyes,” says Janssen. “And they are well trained to let children play the game themselves. Children don’t have time to bully each other. Bullying is often out of boredom.”

More schools
Initiator Province of Limburg will set up a foundation on Tuesday. Schools that want to join the Healthy Primary School of the Future project can register with that foundation. The number of GBT schools in Limburg is being expanded. In the coming year, nine healthy primary schools will be added. The intention is that by 2023 some 30 primary schools will be affiliated with the project. The project costs 4.50 euros per day per child. The province is looking for options to reduce that amount.
