Based on an estimate of 51% of Kylie Cosmetics at $ 590 million, the total cost of Kylie Cosmetics was more than $ 1.1 billion. In real time, the magazine estimates Jenner’s fortune at $ 900 million.

Lawyer declared Efremov’s refusal to consider himself an oppositionist :: Society :: RBC

A participant in the Citizen Poet project, actor Mikhail Efremov, who became an accomplice in a fatal accident in Moscow, does not consider himself an oppositionist. This was reported to RBC by his lawyer Elman Pashayev.

“He told me:“ What is the opposition? I’m an actor, I’m a clown. That’s what they write to me, I’ll say it, ”Pashayev explained.

The day before, Efremov’s lawyer said that the actor had a heart attack. According to Pashayev, the artist became ill last night. His family wanted to call an ambulance, but Efremov dissuaded relatives. Efremov’s condition improved on the morning of June 25. However, due to malaise, the actor could not visit the mother’s grave – on this day was the anniversary of her death. According to Pashayev, the actor is depressed.

Efremov’s lawyer denied reports of the actor’s attempt to commit suicide

The accident with the participation of Mikhail Efremov occurred on June 8. Driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee, the actor drove into the oncoming lane on Smolenskaya Square and collided with a Lada van, which was driven by the courier of the Delikateska online store Sergey Zakharov. As a result, the injured in serious condition was taken to the hospital. However, he passed away the next day.

As stated in the conclusion of the examination, at the time of the accident, Efremov was intoxicated. At the same time, the results of a psychiatric examination showed that the actor has no mental disorders.

A criminal case was instituted against Efremov under Part 4 of Art. 264 of the Criminal Code (violation of traffic rules while intoxicated and resulting in the death of a person through negligence), as well as under Art. 228.1 of the Criminal Code (illegal production, sale or transfer of narcotic drugs), according to which Efremov passes as a witness.

Dobrovinsky called the joyful results of the psychiatric examination of Efremov

On June 9, the court sent the actor under house arrest for two months.

A few days after the accident, Efremov recorded a video message in which he apologized to the relatives of the deceased. However, they did not accept the actor’s apology, considering them belated.

The lawyer of the family of the deceased Alexander Dobrovinsky said that the relatives did not intend to accept compensation from the actor, but were interested in the court making a fair decision.

On June 23, Pashayev announced on the air of Ekho Moskvy radio station that Efremov was ready to adopt Zakharov’s children. Later, in a conversation with RIA Novosti, the lawyer said that his client plans to take care of the children, but “not in the sense of adopting according to documents.” The son of the deceased, Valery, commenting on the words of Efremov about the readiness to adopt the children of the deceased, called the offer of the actor an insult.

very cheap and long-known drugs help save the lungs with coronavirus

Cloving hospital on the basis of the Medical Scientific and Educational Center (ISSC) Moscow State University named after M.V.Lomonosov took the first patients on April 21 and completed his work on June 13. It turned out that it was possible to achieve the best treatment results for COVID-19 in Moscow. Over the entire period, 4 patients died, and among severe patients who got mechanical ventilation, the mortality rate was less than 14% (for comparison, the average for the city and the world was up to 70 – 80%). Eighteen doctors out of 220 employees of the hospital were infected with coronavirus, there were no deaths among the medical staff.

What approaches were used at the University Hospital of Moscow State University to achieve such results? We continue the conversation with the head. Department of Therapy, Faculty of Fundamental Medicine, Moscow State University, Head of the Department of Age-Associated Diseases, Medical Scientific and Educational Center, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Cardiologist Yana Orlova.

MEDICINE FOR COUGH FOR 80 RUBLES

– Most of those who are ill or are afraid to get sick are worried about fibrotic changes in their lungs. They say that you have developed special therapy that can reduce the risk of developing fibrosis. Is it possible?!

– Yes, we launched an appropriate clinical study. There are no final results yet, but we have developed clinical practice.

“What did you do to save the lungs?”

– We used a combination of bromhexine and spironolactone (both are long-known very cheap drugs. – Ed.). Bromhexine is an expectorant that has been prescribed to patients with pneumonia and cough for many years. At the same time, experimental data showed that this drug can block a specific enzyme and impede the penetration of coronavirus into cells. True, it was on this effect that we counted to a lesser extent in inpatients, since such an effect is important mainly in the early stages of the disease. But the expectorant effect of bromhexine really helps patients with COVID. I heard that our colleagues in Peter launched a study of bromhexine for prophylactic purposes. We will wait for the results.

FIBROSIS OBSTACLE

– The second drug – spironolactone – is traditionally widely used in cardiology for the treatment of heart failure, severe hypertension. It has a small diuretic, magnesium and potassium-preserving effect, continues Yana. Orlova. – It has several mechanisms through which it can be useful in coronavirus infection.

Firstly, a mechanism that prevents the development of fibrosis in general in the body. There are works that, in particular, show that spironolactone reduces fibrosis in the heart. At the same time, it is known that the tendency to fibrosis is not local, but systemic – where there is more inflammation, there will certainly be fibrosis. And we see, of course, fibrotic changes in the “covide” in our patients. Therefore, we prescribed spironolactone as a drug for the prevention of this process.

Secondly, this drug blocks sex hormone receptors, in particular testosterone. Some published studies suggest that “high-testosterone” men suffer from “covid” more often and develop more severe fibrotic changes. Therefore, blocking these receptors for several weeks during COVID treatment may be useful in reducing the severity of complications. We are not talking about a longer intake, since male patients are unlikely to agree with a decrease in testosterone levels in the long term.

And perhaps the most important point. In almost all of our patients, we observed hypokalemia (a decrease in potassium levels. – Ed.). With coronavirus infection, potassium is intensely excreted from the body, and scientific articles even suggest that hypokalemia serves as the trigger for a cytokine storm. So spironolactone has a real chance to reduce the risk of this dangerous complication. But the main thing, in my opinion, is that lowering the level of potassium in the body is extremely harmful to the heart and triggers life-threatening rhythm disturbances, increasing the risk of sudden death. We, like all others, replenished potassium with droppers, but it was more effective to retain it in the body with the help of spironolactone.

WHEN PRESCRIBED PATIENTS

– Yana Arturovna, how many patients did you have on average?

– About 10 – 14 days. But someone and 50 days.

– Have you noticed signs by which it can be assumed that the disease in the person brought is likely to go the hard way?

– Such studies were carried out in the world, our clinical practice confirmed them. Men certainly get worse than women; the elderly are heavier than the young; overweight people are heavier than overweight patients. Men with a classic male type of baldness, a lot of facial hair, we can say brutal men get sick harder.

– Under what conditions did you discharge patients?

– We acted as close as possible to the recommendations Ministry of Health: so that the temperature for three days was not higher than 37.5 degrees; so that C-reactive protein (an indicator of inflammation) is lower than 10 mg / l, and saturation, that is, the level of oxygen in the blood, is higher than 96%.

“HEAD OF EPIDEMIOLOGY DEPARTMENT OF ITSELF WORKED AT SANPROPUSNIK”

– How often do you get sick doctors and nurses?

– In the first month no one got sick at all. We have a very powerful epidemiological service. The head of the sanitary-epidemiological department, a senior researcher, correctly organized the whole process, and for the first two weeks she personally worked in the sanitary inspection room at the exit from the “red zone” and helped doctors and nurses who were exhausted after the shift safely remove protective clothing.

Then both people’s fatigue and viral load accumulated. By the middle of the second month, sick people began to appear. There were no seriously ill patients. We treated part of the staff in our observation, part of it was treated at home. In total, 18 people were infected from the medical staff (less than 10%).

– Doctors take something for prevention? Vitamins C, D, Zinc?

– I saw the recommendations of American nutritionists, they speak out positively about taking zinc, melatonin and vitamin C. There were somewhat conflicting data on vitamin D. But we did not give any such recommendations to our employees. We have all the prevention was associated with minimizing contacts and other measures of epidemiological safety.

Physicians are the heroes of our time.“If you think that you are special and that a pandemic will not affect you, you are deeply mistaken,” listen to what the doctors who are fighting with coronavirus say

Banks have limited the ability to go negative by debit cards :: Finance :: RBC

Banks announced a reduction in interest rates on deposits and loans after the Central Bank

“Equifax” in statistics takes into account only debit cards to which the overdraft option is connected. Banks of “not the first echelon” usually offer such a product, explained Oleg Lagutkin, General Director of Equity Bank.

The combined credit bureau (the only BKI that has data from Sberbank) includes in its statistics on overdrafts debts not only on debit cards, but also on installment cards, if banks define debt as an overdraft, explained his representative. According to the OKB, in May the average overdraft limit amounted to 42 thousand rubles, and compared with March, the indicator decreased by only 7.3%. He, like issuing overdraft cards, recovered after a sharp decline in April.

The National Bureau of Credit Histories (NBCH), which is also included in the top 3 Russian credit indexes, does not keep such statistics, a representative of the bureau said.

Why banks have changed overdrafts

A decrease in the number and volume of open overdrafts on cards is a direct consequence of bank policies in a pandemic, Lagutkin said. “By changing their lending policies after the start of the self-isolation regime, lenders extended most of the measures not only to popular consumer loans,” adds the General Director of Equifax Investment Company.

Banks reduced overdraft limits due to a general decrease in real incomes of the population, says Mikhail Doronkin, head of the bank ratings department of the NKR agency. According to him, this may be due to the peculiarities of the methodology for calculating such limits.

“If, when opening a credit card, banks can request information on income from customers to assess their reliability and set a limit, then in the case of a debit card, overdraft limits are often set automatically and do not take account transactions into account,” the analyst explains. In the pre-crisis period, providing customers with an overdraft allowed banks to earn money on those who “went into the red” or did not suspect an overdraft. “Under current conditions, the presence of such an option, on the contrary, could increase the risk of non-return,” he adds.

“Issuance of overdraft cards, including installment cards, declined significantly during quarantine, as did issuance in other lending segments. Moreover, the reduction was not so strong compared to that which we observe in the segment of credit cards, ”noted Artur Design Bureau General Director. This could be due to a lower available limit on these cards than on credit cards, which means less risk for banks, he added.

In a crisis, banks could cut low-demand products in order to reduce credit risk, agrees Sergey Grishunin, head of the rating service of the National Rating Agency (NRA). He draws attention to the fact that banks, as a rule, require customers to repay the overdraft in a short time, and the interest rate on such loans is higher than on classic credit cards. “Based on all this, it is simply unprofitable for banks to keep a product that most likely a“ good ”borrower will not use (they have a credit card, often with bonuses). A “bad” bank is not profitable, ”the expert concludes.

Which banks give customers an overdraft

According to Frank RG, there are now special cards with overdraft in the lines of five organizations: Absolut Bank, Asia Pacific Bank, Uralsib, Center-Invest Bank and Transcapitalbank. The representative of Uralsib told RBC that the bank does not offer such a product, the remaining banks did not respond to inquiries.

Which banks offer overdraft on their debit cards as an option, Frank RG does not track. Most of the large organizations surveyed said they did not provide such a service. Among them are Sberbank, Gazprombank, Otkrytie, Alfa Bank, Promsvyazbank, Sovcombank, UniCredit Bank, Home Credit, Zenit, Ak Bars, Renaissance Credit and MTS Bank. However, on the banki.ru profile forum, there are many reviews of customers of large banks about connecting an overdraft without notice, technical overdraft and other problems associated with this product.

The only bank that has confirmed the availability of the overdraft option for debit cards is VTB. Such a service is offered to salary clients, a bank representative said. “In March-May, the bank did not change the terms of connection and the average size of limits for this product. “We do not notice any changes in client preferences for disabling or activating overdraft services,” he added.

Will banks become more loyal to using overdraft

“There is a version that it’s precisely by such actions that banks are preparing for the end of exemptions regarding the accrual of reserves. We believe that overdrafts in the event of a crisis may even disappear or remain only with premium customers of banks, ”says Grishunin. On Friday, June 26, the Bank of Russia announced a partial curtailment of support measures for banks introduced at the onset of the crisis. But softened reserve requirements will continue until September 30.

Banks must form reserves not only for loans actually issued, but also for unused limits, taking into account demand ratios. Overdraft is included in this category, said the director of bank ratings of Expert RA, Ivan Uklein. According to him, banks are so far “reinsured”, and after lifting sanitary restrictions and stabilizing the situation on the labor market, the policy of creditors regarding opening overdrafts will become softer.

In June, the retail lending market experienced a recovery, says Lagutkin from Equifax. According to him, this may in the future have an impact, including on the overdraft segment.

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.
