Kateřina Brožová (52) has several unsuccessful relationships. But now she seems to have found love again. The actress went to rest on the island of Corsica, where she is allegedly not alone. Fans are asking a lot about who is the author of the video, which the actress is proud of.
It was more than clear that Brožová will not be after the breakup with the media mogul Jaroslav Soukup (51) long alone. The actress boasted of a video on the social network, in which she feeds fish. However, she did not reveal who the author of the record was. After various escapades with millionaires, it can be assumed that this is not a colleague who has deep in his pocket, but another entrepreneur.
Brožová married for the first time in 1997 to the entrepreneur Zdeněk Toman. However, they ended their marriage after seven years. They have a daughter, Kateřina. After the divorce, the actress appeared next to her businessman Petr Kovarčík for two years, who died in 2015 as a result of a ruptured stomach ulcer.
In 2006, she maintained a relationship with the Slovak billionaire Boris Kollár for half a year. The reason for their separation was the workload of both. Four years later, there was speculation about the relationship with the married Teplice boss of the CSSD, Petr Benda. In 2013, Brořová got together with media mogul Jaromír Soukup, with whom the relationship also ended in collapse.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The head of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention testified on Capitol Hill on Thursday that public health officials discussed coronavirus information in rooms classified on occasions “too numerous to count”, although he has said the information was not treated as classified.

Last Wednesday, Reuters reported that the White House ordered federal health officials from the nation’s leading health and services department (HHS) to treat high-level coronavirus meetings as classified, citing four officials from the Coronavirus. Trump administration.
Officials said dozens of these discussions have taken place since mid-January in a high-security meeting room at the HHS, which oversees the CDC, and that personnel without security clearance have been excluded.
After the story was published, National Security Council spokesman John Ullyot sent emails to Reuters on Wednesday evening, saying “The White House never ordered any agency” to deal with high-level coronavirus meetings. as classified “”, as history claims.
“This story is fake news,” he wrote.
When questioned about Thursday’s Reuters report, dr. Robert Redfield, director of the CDC, said at the meetings of the Chamber of Meetings Supervision and Reform Committee: “We are keeping them in a reserved room, but the nature and content of those conversations are not classified. ”
The vice president’s office emailed a joint statement from HHS secretary Alex Azar and national security adviser Robert O’Brien on Thursday saying they were “perplexed” by Reuters history, stating that the task force meetings convened by Vice President Mike Pence take place in the White House Situation Room and are not classified. The Reuters story did not mention Pence’s task force, which it began conducting in late February. These were meetings at HHS that sources said were held in a secure room called the Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF). “We are true to our history,” said a Reuters spokesman on Thursday.
The sources, who all spoke on condition of anonymity, said they could not describe the interactions in the SCIF because they were classified. But they said the topics included the scope of outbreaks, quarantine issues and travel restrictions.
SCIFs are intended to be used for classified matters and include restrictions on participants, such as banning most cell phones.
“We had some very critical people who didn’t have security clearances that they couldn’t go to,” said one of the officials cited by Reuters.
A spokesman for Republican Senator Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican, said Thursday that Grassley’s office contacted the White House to ask for the Reuters report because he was concerned about the potential overclassification of the information, a matter he had previously raised. .
“Federal health experts need to be able to access all information from the intelligence community that could help fight this pandemic,” said spokesman Michael Zona.
Kel McClanahan, a Washington, DC-based attorney who specializes in national security law and classification matters, said that if the practice was to hold these meetings in a SCIF, prevent certain people who did not have security clearance from attending and prevent participants from discussing matters with unclear people, so “it would be classified”.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House has ordered federal health officials to treat high-level meetings with coronavirus as classified, an unusual step that has limited information and hampered the U.S. government’s response to contagion, according to four officials from the United States. Trump administration.

Officials said dozens of confidential discussions on topics such as the extent of infections, quarantines and travel restrictions have been held since mid-January in a high-security meeting room at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), a key actor. in the fight against coronavirus.
Personnel without security clearance, including government experts, were barred from intercompany meetings, which included video calls, sources said.
“We had some very critical people who didn’t have security clearances that couldn’t go,” said one official. “These should not be confidential meetings. It was not necessary. ”
Sources say the National Security Council (NSC), which advises the president on security matters, has ordered the classification. “This came directly from the White House,” said an official.
The White House’s insistence on secrecy with the nation’s leading public health organization, which has not previously been disclosed, has hidden some information and potentially delayed the response to the crisis. COVID19, the disease caused by the virus, killed about 30 people in the United States and infected over 1,000 people.
HHS oversees a wide range of health agencies, including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which is responsible for monitoring cases and providing nationwide epidemic assistance.
Administration officials, who spoke with Reuters on condition of anonymity, said they could not describe the interactions in the meeting room because they were classified.
An NSC spokesman did not answer questions about HHS meetings. But he defended administration transparency between federal agencies and noted that administration task force meetings on coronavirus are not all classified. It was not immediately clear which meetings he was referring to.
“From the first day of the coronavirus response, NSC has insisted on the principle of radical transparency,” said spokesman John Ullyot. He added that the administration “reduced bureaucracy and set the global standard in protecting the American people under the leadership of President Trump.”
An HHS spokeswoman, Katherine McKeogh, released a statement that addressed no questions about confidential meetings. Using language that echoed that of the NSC, the department said it agreed that task force meetings should not be classified.
Critics have hammered the Trump administration for what they see as a delayed response to coronavirus epidemics and a lack of transparency, including experts at a disadvantage and providing misleading or incomplete information to the public. State and local officials also complained that they were kept in the dark about essential information on the federal response.
US vice president Mike Pence, the administration’s top coronavirus person, promised on March 3 to offer “real-time information at a steady pace and be completely transparent.” The vice president, appointed by President Donald Trump in late February, regularly holds briefings and has pledged to rely on expert guidance.
HHS meetings were held in a secure area called the “Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Structure”, or SCIF, according to administration officials.
SCIFs are generally reserved for intelligence and military operations. Normal cell phones and computers cannot be brought into the rooms. HHS has SCIFs because theoretically it would play an important role in biological warfare or chemical attacks.
A former high-ranking official who helped deal with public health epidemics in the George W. Bush administration said that “it is not normal to classify discussions about a response to a public health crisis.”
Meeting participants included HHS secretary Alex Azar and his chief of staff Brian Harrison, officials said. Azar and Harrison resisted the classification of the meetings, sources said.
HHS did not make Azar or Harrison available for comment.
One of the administration officials told Reuters that when complex quarantine issues emerged, a senior HHS attorney with experience in the matter was not admitted because he did not have adequate security clearance. His contribution was delayed and offered in an unclassified meeting, the official said.
A fifth source known at the meetings said that HHS personnel were often not informed of coronavirus developments because they did not have adequate authorization. He said he was told that the issues were classified “because they had to do with China”.
The coronavirus epidemic originated in China and the primary goal of the administration to prevent early spread was to limit the travel of non-US citizens from China and authorize the quarantine of people entering the United States who may have been exposed to virus.
One of the administration officials suggested that security authorizations for HHS meetings were imposed not to protect national security but to keep information in a tight circle to avoid leaks.
“It seemed to be a tool for the White House – for the NSC – to keep participation in these meetings low,” said the official.

The enemy Hank Bolden
faced did not come from a distant front line.
It came from the skies.
It’s a battle that’s still going on 65 years later. Bolden, who is now 82 years old, is an atomic veteran – one of hundreds of thousands of American service members used in human testing by the United States government during post-WWII nuclear tests and sworn to a secret life.
“They wanted to see how the living soldiers would resist the exposure
to radiation, ”recalls Bolden. “Before using live soldiers they were using
mannequins. But you don’t get real results using mannequins as you would
live bodies. “
A DIFFERENT TIME
While accompanying a friend to a New Haven recruiting station in 1953, Bolden was invited to join the army. At just 16 years old then and already out of high school, he admits that he “pulled down” his birth certificate to move to the age of 18, joining the approximately 200,000 underage soldiers who would have served during the Second World War and the eras of the Korean War.
After basic training in
Fort Dix was assigned to work as a tank mechanic in Texas before moving to Texas
California and becoming a surface-to-air missile mechanic.
Despite an executive order issued in July
26, 1948, by President Harry S. Truman to desegregate the armed forces, the last one
the all black units of the army were not abolished until 1954. And in 1955, Bolden
he says, racist attitudes persist even after the units have been racially integrated.
“The residual thoughts of people were firm
linger, “he says.” My outfit was 800 people strong. Thirteen of us were
black. Ten were from the South, who were more tolerant of treatment
they got racially. But the three of us from the North couldn’t tolerate it,
so I have had many fights over this. So I was the guy they wanted
get rid of.”
It would not be the only race
discrimination Bolden would witness as a soldier.
In 1955, the seventeen year old
he was suddenly ordered to the Nevada desert without explanation.
“They don’t tell you what you’re going to face,” he said. “Nobody
they knew what they were going to face. ”
What he would eventually face was a classified operation known as Operation Teapot at the Nevada Test Site. In a series of 14 bomb throws, or “hits”, military officials tried to test the effects of nuclear bombs on structures and strategies, animals and people.
All races of military personnel
participated in the Teapot operation. But upon arrival in Nevada, Bolden was
astounded to accomplish all the other soldiers in his new specially selected unit
for a mysterious assignment they were also black.
“There was this myth about black people
be able to resist, tolerate certain things more than any other race “, he
He says. “So it was a test on that too.”
AN ATOMIC NIGHT
One morning in February, Bolden
the unit was ordered in a desert trench. Unbeknownst to them, it was excavated
the expected route of the fallout, only 2.8 miles away from what it would have become
ground zero for the launch of an atomic bomb.
Even though a countdown sounded on the speakers, Bolden says, the soldiers still had no idea what they were about to face. Without protective gear in addition to the normal fabrics and helmets, they waited and looked.
“They tell you to cover your eyes”
On February 18, 1955, Shot Wasp, the first nuclear test of Operation Teapot, detonated a Mark 6 nuclear bomb dropped by a B-36 exactly at noon. A monstrous cloud of mushrooms filled the sky, reaching 21,500 feet in height.
“With radiation, when you put your arms over your eyes or hands, you actually see the bones, you see the bones in your body from the exposure. You can see your skeleton. “
After the relapse the warning came.
“You swore not to speak
“said Bolden. The soldiers were threatened with imprisonment and fines for violation
For 60 years, Bolden didn’t tell anyone. No this
family, not his wife, not his children. Not even her doctors when she spies on her
tumors have started to show. He developed bladder and posterior subcapsular cancer
cataract and in 1990 multiple myeloma was diagnosed.
“They actually gave me three and a half years
four years to live, ”recalls Bolden. So in 1995 I should have been a statistic. “
But in 1995, Bolden was in remission. He is a citizen
the secret was coming to light.
Government figures estimate between 400,000 and 550,000 US military personnel who participated in a series of nuclear tests between 1946 and 1992. According to the Department of Defense’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency, this includes post occupation forces -Second World War of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, prisoners of war in Japan at the end of the Second World War, participants in the atmospheric nuclear tests in Nevada and the Pacific from 1945 to 1962 and participants in the underground nuclear tests in Nevada from 1951 to 1992.
Many of these “atomic veterans” have succumbed before their own
the stories have become public, their bodies are full of tumors. In
1990, the veil of secrecy began to lift.
After setting up the Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments to investigate 10-year experiments, President Clinton made a formal apology to American atomic veterans on October 3, 1995. By order of the president, Congress would repeal the nuclear radiation agreement law. and secrecy, allowing atomic veterans to talk about their experiences without fear of fines or treason charges. And financial compensation has been opened to all qualified atomic veterans.
“Those who led the government when these decisions were made are no longer here to take responsibility for what they have done. They are not here to apologize to survivors, family members or their communities whose lives have been overshadowed by shadow of these choices So today, on behalf of another generation of American leaders and another generation of American citizens, the United States of America offers sincere apologies to those of our citizens who have undergone these experiments. the government is wrong, we have a moral responsibility to admit it, “said President Bill Clinton on October 3, 1995
But the television address has been obscured. The same happened
day when OJ Simpson’s verdict was issued in a live classroom feed, taking
on televisions and news cycles across America.
As a result, many skilled veterans had no idea of the ban
the secrecy had been lifted, nor that they could claim benefits. Bolden no
find out until he researched the Internet, he says, in 2015.
“I was once so angry and so aggravating with the government that I thought I would be murdered to keep me from talking,” he says.
When Bolden attempted to apply for subsidies, he found that the burden of proof was placed on his fellow atomic veterans. The government would give compensation from the date a complaint was filed, but not retroactively, and only if the veteran could prove that he had participated in the tests – which proved to be an almost impossible task after millions of military documents were destroyed in a 1973 fire against the National Staff Registration Center. As many as 18 million documents were burned, including 80% of all army personnel discharged between 1912 and 1960.
“They hoped for it
would have died sooner or would have been one of those guys who surrendered ”
says Anthony Bolden, Hank’s son. “No thanks. Hank doesn’t have it.”
After paying her
own pocket for a polygraph lie detector pouch, Hank eventually claimed
approved, setting a precedent for other atomic veterans whose records were

Hit a high note
“The love of music has
I’ve always been there. “
After his honorable discharge
from the army, Bolden went to work as an engineer before deciding to pursue a
career as a jazz musician who works while his family grows. Tell the story
while cradling the tenor saxophone that has been at his side since 1967. The “Rolls
Royce “of tools, he says.
The brand is Selmer. IS
in a strange coincidence, the model is a 6 sign. It is the same name as the shot
Wasp atomic bomb design.
But this is where the
the similarities end. The bomb was his nightmare. Music, his dream and his
outlet to work through the trauma of what lived in Nevada
“It’s like the blood inside
my veins. It takes away all my other thoughts, “he says
Bolden is finally
he receives compensation from the government and is now using it to help make his dream come true.
He returned to school, studying jazz performances at Hartt University of Hartford
“They are like the relic
here with all these kids, you know, “he chuckles.
Professor Javon Jackson
says that the 82-year-old is leaving a unique mark on the prestigious program.
“He has a lot of emotion,” says Jackson. “He is a very bluesy, very full of feeling, a natural player. His life, wisdom and the things he has acquired allow him to play the way it sounds.”
The vast majority of
Today, the American atomic veterans of the atmospheric test era are gone. About
400,000 veterans were present during these tests, according to the veterans
Administration. Survivors’ numbers vary, from around 10,000 to 80,000
Bolden believes he is one of only two surviving African American atomic veterans who are recognized and receive compensation from the government. He is on a mission to reach as many survivors as possible and help them request the long-awaited recognition and compensation.
And he’s sharing his story, he says, to make sure the plight of American atomic veterans is no longer ignored.
“When people like me pass by, this won’t be part of the story unless someone makes sure it’s kept alive.”
