For wine to Znojmo. The historic vintage will replace Vinařské T (r) ipy this year

“Despite the fact that we cannot organize the Znojmo Vintage due to government measures, we present Vinařská T®ipy together with the winemakers. Open cellars and tastings will be offered on the weekend of September 11-13 by winemakers from Hnanice and Šatov, Konice and Popice, Vrbovec, Božice, Nový Šaldorf, Havraníky, Chvalovice or also from Znovín Znojmo and Vinařství Lahofer, “said František Koudela, director of Znojemská Beseda.

A unique event of this format will be in the Znojmo region for the first time. “Thanks to the size and scope, there will be no accumulation of a huge number of visitors, and in addition to the wine menu, they will also be able to enjoy the music and accompanying program,” added Koudela.

All winemakers are looking forward to the guests. “Already in June, it occurred to us that if the Vintage was not in Znojmo, we would make open cellars. Other colleagues also joined, “said one of the organizers from Hnanice, Josef Kořínek.

Although many imagine the festivities associated with the procession of King John of Luxembourg under vintage, it is the celebration of the harvest and harvest of the vines that hides beneath it. “The weather, which this year is characterized by alternating cold and warm days and nights, predetermines that this year’s wines will be pleasantly aromatic, especially Sauvignon, Müller Thurgau, Tramín červený, Veltlínské zelené and all nutmeg varieties,” said Pavel Vajčner, Chairman of the Board of Znovín Znojmo.

By joint promotion of partial events and the program, the organizers want to satisfy locals and visitors who have planned a trip to Znojmo in this period and who, for example, already have booked accommodation. “We really have a lot of questions about the alternative program instead of the vintage, and this offer will be the answer for us,” added Koudela. An overview of all events can be found on the website of Znojemská Beseda and at individual associations and wineries.

Even expected, the free fall in the results of the past semester makes you dizzy. At the heart of the storm, Uber and Booking.com suffered, each in their own way, from containment measures and the stoppage of travel around the world because of the coronavirus. From April to June, Uber lost $ 1.8 billion as demand collapsed. Its sales plummeted 29% to $ 2.2 billion. Investors, who are impatient to see the California company become profitable, will have to wait a little longer.

Before the pandemic, Uber planned to make its first profits in the last quarter of 2020. In the spring, its executives had warned that the target would be delayed by several quarters. Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO, now expects 2021. For this, it was urgently necessary to cut costs. Almost a quarter of employees were made redundant in the spring and activities were halted in many countries.

The situation is unprecedented since the creation of the flagship index of the Paris Bourse in 1987.

it raises the number of infections among young people – Telemundo San Diego (20)

According to the count of NBC News, the US reached early this morning of Saturday, the number of 2,467,147 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 125,547 deceased.

Texas and Florida backtracked on Friday, and adopted new measures against the bars, while the daily number of confirmed infections of coronaviruses throughout the united States reached an unprecedented 40,000.

The governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, ordered the closure of all the bars, while Florida banned the consumption of alcohol in those establishments. Both states joined a small but growing list of entities that have been suspended, a greater re-opening of their economies due to flare-ups, mainly in the south and the west of the country.

On Wednesday, the number of new cases of coronavirus by day in the united States, exceeded the peak reached at the end of April, recording more than 45,000 new cases of COVID-19, more than the maximum 36,400 reached on the 24th of April, according to NBC News.

This according to data compiled Wednesday by NBC.

The state most affected by the pandemic remains New York with 395,703 confirmed cases 32,169 deceased.

New York will continue to the neighboring New Jersey with 173,640 confirmed cases and 14,872 deceased, the state of Illinois, with 138,540 infections and 6,847 deaths, and Massachusetts, which has been reported 107,837 positive for coronavirus and 8,013 dead.

Other states with a large number of deaths are Michigan (6,133), Pennsylvania (6,630), California (5,814), and Connecticut, with 4,307.

Health experts have said that it is seeing an alarmingly high number of infections among young people who are coming out again, often without masks and without follow other social distancing measures.

Governor Greg Abbott took the decision to the spike in cases of COVID-19.

“It is evident that the increase in cases is driven primarily by a certain type of activities, as the assistance of texans in the bars,” stated Abbott.

Abbott had undertaken one of the calendarizaciones most dynamic of reopening in the country. The republican had stood up to the demands of that order the use of facemasks and also had refused until last week to allow local governments to impose such a measure.

“The doctors told us at the time, and what is said to who will listen, that this would be a disaster. And what has been”, stated the judge, democrat Clay Jenkins, the authority of highest rank in the county of Dallas. “Once again, the governor acts with slowness. Now you are forced to do the things that you require to do so in the last month and a half”.

Texas reported more than 17,000 new cases in the last three days, and on Thursday reached a record high of nearly 6,000. The second most populous state has also registered daily record of hospitalizations, and Friday surpassed for the first time the 5,000 patients of coronavirus boarding schools.

Colleen Corbett, a maid of 30 years who works at two facilities in Tampa, was said to be upset and worried to stay again without a job, but pointed out that the restrictions are the correct size. Most customers were not using masks, he said.

“It seems as if they have forgotten that there is a pandemic or just left to worry,” said Corbett.

Several of the states most affected, such as Arizona and Arkansas, have republican governors who have resisted efforts to legislate mandatory use of facemasks and have reiterated the president’s desire to Donald Trump to revive the economy quickly, despite warnings that there could be new outbreaks of coronavirus.

The experts of the federal government estimate that they would be more than 20 million infected with the virus in the US. To see more of Telemundo, visit now.telemundo.com

The number of deaths from coronavirus in the united States has been around 600 per day recently, compared with about 2,200 in the peak reached in April. Some experts doubt that it will reach that level again due to advances in treatment and prevention.

The virus has caused some 125,000 deaths and has infected almost 2.5 million people in the united States, according to a tally by the Johns Hopkins University. But health authorities believe that the number of cases is 10 times higher. At the global level, the virus has claimed close to half a million lives.

Louisiana reported its second day with more than 1,300 confirmed cases, a number that made the democratic governor, John Bel Edwards to suspend a greater lifting of restrictions on mobility. The republican governor of Arizona, Doug Ducey, did the same thing, since the new cases in your state exceed the 3,000 per day, and 85% of hospital beds are occupied.

For the second time in a week, Tennessee reported its biggest daily increase in confirmed infections, with more than 1,400, but the republican governor Bill Lee has been reluctant to re-impose restrictions or require the use of masks.

experts say looming disaster – Telemundo Denver

Hospital administrators and health experts warned on Wednesday that some parts of the united States are on the verge of being overwhelmed by a resurgence of the coronavirus, and expressed regret that politicians and the public weary of closures are leaving that disaster to happen.

The united states recorded a total of 34,700 new cases of COVID-19 in a day, the highest figure in two months, from the peak of 36,400 registered in mid-April, according to the count maintained by the Johns Hopkins University.

Even though new confirmed cases have been declining steadily in sites with outbreaks early in the united States, such as New York and New Jersey, several other states set records for one day this week, including Arizona, California, Mississippi, Nevada and Texas. Some of them broke in addition to records of hospital admissions, as it happened in North Carolina and South Carolina.

The united states reached this Wednesday the number of 2,385,348 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and the of 122,450 deceased, in accordance with the count independent of NBC News.

New York remains the state hardest hit by the pandemic with 398,105 confirmed cases and 32,079 dead.

New York will continue to the neighboring New Jersey (173,475 cases and 13,004 deceased), Massachusetts (107,611 infections and 7,938 deaths) and Illinois (138,540 positive and 6,770 dead).

In Pennsylvania there are 87,733 cases, of which 6,573 have resulted in deaths. Meanwhile, in Michigan, have been confirmed 68,555 infections and 6,114 deaths.

California currently has 192,537 infections and 5,677 deaths, while in Connecticut there are 45,899 infected and 4,277 deceased. Florida reached 109,014 cases and 3,281 deceased, at the time that Louisiana collects 52,477 infections and 3,152 deaths.

“People became complacent,” said dr. Marc Boom, director general of the hospital system Houston Methodist. “And the virus is returning and golpeándonos, frankly”.

The stock market plunged considerably on Wednesday after the resurgence of the virus cast a shadow over hopes for a quick economic recovery. The virus has been blamed for more than 122,000 deaths in the united States and more than 2.3 million of confirmed infections.

California, the most populous state, reported more than 7,100 new cases. The count in Florida grew by 5,500 in a day, an increase of 25% compared to the record of the previous week and three times the level just two weeks ago.

In Texas, which began to lift the restrictions of the confinement may 1, the hospital admissions have doubled, and the new cases to triple in two weeks.

Governor Greg Abbott told the channel KFDA-TV that the state goes through a “massive outbreak” and may require new local restrictions to preserve space for hospitalizations in some places.

In the eight hospitals of Houston Methodist in Texas, the count of patients with COVID-19 has increased threefold in the last month, at 312. Approximately 20% of the testing of coronavirus that are now the hospitals are positive, compared with between 2% and 4% in mid-may.

If that trend doesn’t change, the chain of hospitals with 2,000 beds would be 600 patients with coronavirus in the next three weeks and would be forced to cancel surgeries not essential, said Boom.

“We need everyone to behave perfectly and work together perfectly,” to slow down the rate of infections, said Boom. “When I see a restaurant or a business in which the people are not following the guidelines, where they are abandoning the caution, that makes me mad”.

In Arizona, the cases will likely exceed the capacity of beds in the hospitals of the state in the coming weeks if the trend continues, said dr. Joseph Gerald, a professor of political of public health of the University of Arizona.

“We are in serious trouble,” said Gerald, who called the state to impose new restrictions on business, something that the republican governor Doug Ducey has refused to do. Without such measures, says Gerald, the balance of deaths will occur at levels “unprecedented”.

Dr. Peter Hotez, an expert in infectious diseases, said that he is concerned that the states wasted the time they have left to prevent a crisis much greater.

“We are still speaking of subtleties, we are discussing if we should wear masks or not, and we still do not understand that a vaccine is not going to rescue,” said Hotez, of the School of Medicine, Baylor, Texas.

Initially, governor Abbott, also a republican, forbade local officials penalized or multaran people for not wearing masks when he began to be reopened by the state. After cases are fired, Abbott said last week that cities and counties could allow the business would require masks.

In Florida, several counties and cities have recently begun to require face masks in public places and penalizing businesses that do comply with the regulations of estrangement public.

In an indication of the change of the outbreak in the country, New York, Connecticut and New Jersey, announced that it will require visitors from states with high rates of infection must be quarantined for 14 days. It is a change from march, when the governor of Florida Ron DeSantis issued a similar order for the visitors to the New York area, where then were an increase in cases.
