Meat-eating dinosaur

London: «Middle East»

The remains of a predatory dinosaur (Megaraptor) have been found, becoming one of the last meat-eating dinosaurs that inhabited the planet, according to fossil scientists from the Argentine Museum of Natural Sciences.
The southern province of Santa Cruz witnessed the discovery in mid-March. After the experts studied the fossil remains of ten meters, they realized that they were studying the remains of a predator dinosaur from the end of the “age of the dinosaurs.”
“This is the moment that took place 65 million years ago when the dinosaurs became extinct, and this megapator that we must now study will be one of the newest representatives of this group,” the paleontologist in charge of the project, Fernando Nobath, told Reuters. This type of dinosaur is thinner than the Tyrannosaurus rex and it was fast and had a long tail allowing it to maintain its balance. Nobath said that they had a muscular structure and legs stretched out to make strides. “The specific feature of this megapetor was in two long arms and his thumb ended with a claw about 40 cm long,” allowing him to pounce on his prey, Noboth added.

A long way to go between Argentina and creditors

Buenos Aires shows {flexibility} in debt restructuring negotiations totaling $ 65 billion

Thursday – 12 Shawwal 1441 AH – 04 June 2020 AD No. No. [

The Argentine economy minister expects the road to negotiations with creditors to be long (Reuters)

Buenos Aires: «The Middle East»

Argentine Economy Minister Martin Guzman said Argentina is “flexible” in debt restructuring talks with its creditors, but there is still a “long way” before a “sustainable” agreement is reached.
“Argentina is flexible regarding the set of factors that should form the basis of any offer” for a debt restructuring of $ 65 billion, Guzman said in an interview with German news agency DPA. However, he said, “We cannot make promises that we cannot fulfill … The agreement makes sense only if it is an agreement that takes care of Argentina entirely.”
Buenos Aires stresses that the debt installments cannot be so large that the state threatens to go bankrupt and leaves no room for the shrinking economy to start growing again.
Creditors rejected Argentina’s offer of a three-year moratorium, reducing interest payments by 62 percent, and reducing major payments by 5.4 percent.
Guzmán said that the government had not yet submitted a new proposal, and that negotiations with creditors were currently dealing with “conditions … including the issue of the supply structure”. The minister noted that Argentina is also in talks with the International Monetary Fund to assess its ability to pay. “From the moment Argentina adjusts its offer, there must be an additional 10-day period until the date on which the offer ends,” the minister stressed.
The minister refused to specify the possible length of negotiations. “It depends on the willingness of the parties to understand the restrictions facing the country, as well as on the ability of creditors to settle their differences,” he said. He noted that “creditors are very different, and they have different preferences on how to solve this.” He stressed that the most important of the duration of the talks is that «this needs a good solution. Argentina will only make a commitment if it can respect it. ”
At the same time, Guzmán said, Buenos Aires is discussing a possible new economic program with the International Monetary Fund, through which it is developing a “fruitful” relationship. The fund had previously given Argentina a $ 57 billion bailout package, the largest IMF credit line ever … but the International Monetary Fund is not very popular in Argentina, as critics blame it for austerity policies.
“The previous program was created very quickly, and it was a governmental decision, and the community was not involved,” Guzman said. He promised that this time there would be a “very important social discussion” on relations with the IMF.
Guzmán said that when President Alberto Fernandez’s left-wing government took office last December, it found that the country was “in a total economic crisis and deep debt, and that public finances were in poor shape.”
Argentina has already entered the state of default 8 times, the last of which was in 2001. Guzmán stated that the country now needs to “rebuild confidence” through “monetary and fiscal policies and exchange rate policies that are compatible with each other.” He pointed out that the other main element in creating confidence is “rescheduling debt and bringing it to levels that the country can deal with”.
The Corona pandemic crisis exacerbated Argentina’s economic problems. Guzmán said the country had made health its priority and imposed a “very strict sanitary quarantine.”
On the other hand, the International Monetary Fund said, on Monday, that Argentina’s latest offer to restructure its debt will restore its debt sustainability, and that there is little opportunity for another increase in its payments to private creditors, according to “Bloomberg” agency.
The fund said in a statement: “There is only a limited scope for increasing payments to private creditors, and it still has to pay the debts and service those debts.” In its statement, the Fund added: “The Argentine authorities’ revised proposal for debt restructuring will be consistent with the recovery of debt sustainability with a high probability.”
This is the first comment from the International Monetary Fund since it issued an 18-page “technical note” on March 20, in which it analyzed the Argentine government’s ability to pay debts.

Prehistoric frogs

London: «Middle East»

At a depth of 44 meters during the drilling of a water well in San Pedro, 180 kilometers north of Buenos Aires, Argentine scientists have discovered fossil remains of a type of frog that lived in the center of this South American country about two million years ago, according to Agence France-Presse.
“We don’t know much about prehistoric frogs,” said Federico Aniolan, a researcher with the Argentine Institute of Natural Sciences, at the Science Publishing Agency at the National University of Matanza.
He added: “Frogs and hells are affected greatly by climatic and environmental changes, so they are an important source of information to understand past climates.” And the find happened. The researcher stressed that the paleontologists found “the bone of the humerus is a very small amphibious organism different from the hulls and frogs of trees.”
He emphasized that the petite fossil was identified despite its size because the petroats; It is a group of amphibians, including frogs and toads, with a special structure at the tip of the humerus in the elbow joint. This special structure provides it with great ductility to make quick movements and stability. “The discovery is a great contribution to paleontology in Argentina,” said Federico Aniolan.

Not so much the singer has attracted the attention of users, how much the appearance of 56-year-old Yudashkin. In their view, the designer lost a lot of weight, which was almost not recognizable.

Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara, a most secret couple in Hollywood

“She despises me”, first thinks Joaquin Phoenix when he met Rooney Mara, on the set of Her (2013). He will discover over time that she was just “shy”. Usually very discreet about his life as a couple, the interpreter of the Joker – who won the trophy for best actor in a dramatic film – and the heroine of Carol (2015) nevertheless offered themselves a rare public appearance on the red carpet of the Oscars, in Hollywood, on Sunday, February 9. Joaquin Phoenix won the best actor trophy there. A month earlier, the duo had already appeared together at the Golden Globes ceremony in Beverly Hills.

In October 2018, Joaquin Phoenix had split a rare interview on the beginnings of their romance in the columns of Vanity Fair. “She is the only woman I have ever contacted on the Internet,” he said, almost candid. We were only friends, the kind who exchange emails. I had never done that. Never contacted a woman on the Internet. ”

A rebellious couple

Their meeting in 2013 is, first of all, a missed meeting. At the time, Rooney Mara was in a relationship with director Charlie McDowell (The Discovery) since 2010. Joaquin Phoenix has caused a scandal on the arm of DJ Allie Teilz, 19 years old. The story lasts three months, then radio silence. In 2016, the actor was proclaimed single by the tabloids. Rooney Mara, on the other hand, has not been photographed on the arm of his companion since August. The paths of the two actors (re) cross that year, in Italy, on the set of Marie Madeleine. She plays the main role, incarnates Jesus to her.

It was at this point that the duo fell “madly in love”. If the two actors manage to be discreet, an instant stolen from the balcony of a hotel room in Matera, in November 2016, betrays them somewhat. We see the couple smoking a cigarette and remaking the world. “They worked together on the films Her, Marie Madeleine, and their next project (Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot (2018), by Gus Van Sant, Editor’s note), however, defend the spokespersons of the actors. They have been good friends for a long time. ”

The couple, a bit rebellious, do not facilitate their task. In January 2017, he dried the Golden Globes for the benefit of a stay together “in the desert”, reports Page Six. Only downside, the film Lion, in which Rooney Mara officiates, is in the running … in four categories. The unexpected happens on the evening of the closing of the Cannes Film Festival, May 28, 2017. She shines in her white dress Dior logo, adorned with a Peter Pan collar; charms the Croisette in a black suit and bow tie. In the Lumière Room, when he just received the prize for male interpretation for A Beautiful Day, Joaquin Phoenix fleetingly seizes the hand of his partner, then hugs him tenderly when he leaves the stage.

“In their bubble”

In September 2017, Joaquin Phoenix confides in the columns of the New york times that Rooney Mara has taken up residence at his home in his Hollywood Hills villa. Luckily, both share the same lifestyle. “They don’t like going out,” says an anonymous source. Daily Mail. They mainly like to be both. They are in their own bubble. ” Together, Joaquin and Rooney eat vegan, watch “ten hours of the documentary series The StaircaseAnd take karate lessons.

Without counting the (numerous) nocturnal exchanges: “Rooney said to me the other night,” Do you realize how many great opportunities you had? All these films? “, Says the actor of 44 years in columns of Vanity Fair. I said, “That’s right, I was so lucky,” there were so many movies I thought to myself, “I don’t know if I can have a better experience.” In short, they cultivate their secret garden, and only offer themselves rare public appearances – like August 2, at a dinner in Los Angeles, where they each sported a black and white set.

In video, Tom Hanks very moved on the stage of the Golden Globes

“A disgusting little dragon”

In May 2019, the diamond ring sported by Rooney Mara raises new questions. Would the couple be engaged? During the following summer, certain sources close to the duo confirm the event in the columns ofUs Weekly. Again, the two actors are not making waves. And continue to exchange in coded messages.

September 9, 2019 People’s Choice Award winner at the Toronto Festival, for his role as the Joker, Joaquin Phoenix pins his beauty in public: “One last thing, somewhere here, I don’t know where, is a disgusting little dragon , and I want to rip off its wings and make it a cover and sleep in it forever, he says. I love you. Thank you.”

A strange tribute to the 34-year-old actress and her role as Lisbeth Salander, who has a dragon tattooed on the body. On September 28, 2019, the couple, all dressed in black, pointed at the preview of the Joker by Todd Phillips, in Los Angeles. Arrived hand in hand, Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara exchanged knowing looks and smiles. A rare spotlight on this mysterious romance lived in the shade of the Hill.

Nutritionists advice to have healthy and balanced diets in quarantine

Diet is a key point in the successful development of health, even more so at this time. Here the expert advice

Margarita Coneo Rincón – mconeo@larepublica.com.co

Nutrition is one of the most important aspects of a person’s life and in the midst of this circumstance, having to be at home, one tends to lose the habit of fixed meal times that were determined by aspects such as work, in that there is a specific time for these food breaks.

Among the nutritional behaviors that most affect health is the omission of breakfast According to Olga Lucía Pinzón, nutritionist and professor at the University of Rosario and Méderi, “in children it can make them have greater risks of being overweight and obese,” adding that water consumption cannot be neglected either, as this helps the proper functioning of the immune system. He also explained that changing water for sugary drinks can also harm the body.

Second, “it is important to take care of the portions, in these times of stress, anxiety and uncertainty, there is a tendency to increase the portions or eat more. In addition, people begin to opt for what they call ‘snacks’, that is, packages, fast foods and others that are not healthy for the person, ”Pinzón explained.

Eating outside of established hours is another behavior that affects health, mainly the hormonal and cardiac cycle, since changes in these times condition the effect that food produces according to the time of day when it is consumed; This is called chronutrition. Additionally, there are other problems that can develop such as gastritis, intestinal and stomach diseases and even some cases that may require specialized medical attention. Finally, in aspects such as sleep, attention and bodily sensations such as tiredness, are also affected by intermittency in schedules and diets.

On the other hand, there are harmful foods in large quantities and here we can highlight the highly processed ones, which tend to be high in fats, sugars and salt. On the contrary, the consumption of fiber is recommended, since it helps to avoid overeating, something key to keeping the digestive system healthy.

Faced with this, Isaac Kuzman, a nutritionist doctor, recommended having a “limit the sugar intake and recalled that if you want to eat something sweet, fresh fruit should always be the priority. Now when choosing other dessert options, make sure they’re low in sugar and small in size. Also, be careful with low-fat options, as they are often high in added sugars. Also, limit your fat intake and opt for cooking methods that require less or no fat, such as steaming, grilling, or stir-frying rather than frying food. ”

With regard to food and diet as such, experts recommend that Take an inventory of what you have and also plan what you will eat each day.

“Foods that can never be lacking in protein cooking are eggs, lean meats and chicken and avoiding eating wings, rumps, skins and visors. In fish, salmon, trout, snapper and sea bass are recommended. In carbohydrates we recommend high fiber content, cookies, tubers with peel, banana, yucca and avoid consuming fried, “concluded Maya Molina, Bodytech nutritionist.

Key tips to improve your habits

“Review and write down the food you have at home and plan your consumption; use what is already in your pantry first, as well as food with a shorter shelf life; with this, it will avoid waste ”, assured Issac Kuzmar. In addition to knowing what she has, Olga Pinzón recommends making a daily schedule of what will be consumed during the day, so you can see how balanced her diet is. For his part, Molina stressed that you should always have five meal times and these should not be replaced or suspended by other drinks or foods other than the initial diet.

Corona speeds up the death of inner cities

Dusseldorf Mark Rauschen is concerned. “Around six million visitors come to our fashion and sports house every year,” says the managing partner of L&T in Osnabrück.

But the attraction in the city of Osnabrück is closed because of the corona crisis. “It is currently spooky in the city center,” Rauschen describes the consequences of the state-prescribed shutdown for the city in northern Germany.

It could look similar in many German cities after the end of the corona crisis. Because experts assume that many retailers will not be able to cope with the week-long closure of their shops.

In addition, since many restaurateurs are threatened with the end, there is a risk that the vacancy rate in many city centers will accelerate and that they will become less attractive. The bitter consequence: fewer visitors come to the centers.

“In order to maintain the attractiveness of city centers, a functioning fashion trade is very important,” says Klaus Harnack, partner of the management consultancy Hachmeister + Partner. “This also benefits other sectors that are important for the vitality of cities, such as gastronomy,” emphasizes the consultant.

Bankruptcy wave is expected

But this colorful mix of fashion and other shops and restaurants could change dramatically in the next few months. “At the end of the year at the latest, there will be an unprecedented wave of retail bankruptcies,” says Harnack. He worries that about a third of the companies will not survive the consequences of the corona crisis.

For years, fewer and fewer people have been coming to the cities to shop. In the past five years alone, the number of stores in German retail has declined by around 29,000, according to the Handelsverband Deutschland (HDE).

“Every fifth company in Germany could go bankrupt”

This is due to the growing online business, but also to the fact that the inner cities are becoming more and more the same, because the same chain stores are everywhere esprit about HM to Zara shape the picture – and give up smaller retailers.

In addition, even large corporations such as Galeria Karstadt Kaufhof are at risk. Germany’s largest department store group recently registered a protective shield procedure. The retail giant wants to protect itself from creditors’ claims in the corona crisis.

Difficult times for landlords

This not only affects the big German cities. “The smaller the locations, the more difficult it becomes,” says Eckhard Brockhoff. The entrepreneur from Essen sees himself as the largest regional commercial broker in Germany. Many medium-sized towns had already struggled in recent years. But now the situation is even more explosive.

The broker sees hard times especially for some landlords. Some will lose their tenants because they have to file for bankruptcy. Others are trying to suspend the rent in the coming months with reference to the corona crisis. It may well be that many retail chains wanted to permanently lower their rents afterwards, says Brockhoff.

In the past few years, retailing in city centers had been increasingly replaced by restaurants and takeaways. “Food is the new shopping” is the motto of many neighborhood developers, observes Michael Lidl, partner of the hotel and catering consultancy Treugast.

However, Corona could also partially break off urban catering. The risk of the gastronomic landscape becoming deserted already existed before the crisis. But “such a process is accelerated by the corona crisis,” says Lidl.

Hermann Weiffenbach, the founder of the Enchilada Group from Munich, agrees with this opinion. The entrepreneur and franchisor for around 90 restaurants nationwide fears: “We will experience an insolvency wave in the catering trade. It will hit the small restaurateurs in particular, who generally have no reserves. ”

Fashion brands fear for retailers

International chains could last longer financially. A variety of restaurants, ice cream parlors and cafés are just as important for lively city centers as a wide range of retail outlets.

In order to prevent the store from dying, many companies in the fashion industry have now joined forces. This includes Mark Bezner from the shirt manufacturer Olymp as well as the bosses of the men’s fashion brand Brax and Michael Hirmer, managing partner of the Munich textile house of the same name.

“The overriding goal is to maintain vital inner cities in Germany with an almost unique mix of retail, catering and cultural institutions,” write the authors of a thesis paper, which also includes large associations such as the Federal Association of German Textile Retailers.

Given the expected losses this year and next, loans would not be enough to avert an unprecedented wave of bankruptcies. Retailers and manufacturers would be hit existentially and there would be a devastating domino effect. So it is about the preservation of 440,000 jobs in retail alone with clothing, sports articles, shoes and leather goods.

Austria as a role model

The fashion companies are demanding compensation for the pecuniary damage they suffered as a result of the closure of the shops due to the corona crisis. They refer to the Austrian model.

There, for example, initially granted loans can be converted into grants. In addition, grants can be paid regardless of previously granted loans.

Because according to calculations by Hachmeister + Partner, it can be assumed that the retail sector will only slowly recover after the stores have opened. Depending on the scenario, the drop in sales in May will be up to 50 percent compared to the previous year.

Handelsblatt Morning Briefing - Corona Spezial

A drop of 40 to 50 and 30 to 40 percent is also expected in June and July. Therefore, the dealers could hardly pay rent, personnel and energy costs.

Above all, companies have to prepare for the reopening of the stores. “We are preparing to prepare enough disinfectants, masks and plexiglass panes to protect against spills at the cash registers,” explains Mark Rauschen, head of L&T in Osnabrück, about the huge changes that the corona epidemic will bring to the retail trade.

“We will not experience the ease of shopping in the past,” feared Rauschen. It will take some time before as many visitors as before the crisis will make a pilgrimage to the house with the surf pool.

More: More and more chain stores no longer pay rent.
