‘Foggia estate in villa’: summer events program

Next Tuesday 30 June 2020, in the area in front of the grove of the Villa comunale, at 10 am, a press conference of the “Foggia Estate in Villa” program is scheduled, the summer events program with over 250 appointments in compliance with anti-covid rules . The mayor of Foggia, Franco Landella, the councilor for culture, Anna Paola Giuliani, and the director of the branch, Carlo Dicesare will be present.

“At this particular stage in community life, there was a need to strengthen the bond that we had nurtured during the lockdown period,” Anna Paola Giuliani, Councilor for Culture of the Municipality of Foggia launches “Foggia Estate in Villa 2020”, the events calendar of the city of Foggia that starts in a few hours, in full compliance with the anti-covid rules contained in the DPCM in force.

“In recent weeks – the Councilor underlined – we have published an expression of interest to gather all the projects of the territory, involving associations and professionals of art and culture (sector heavily tried by the health emergency), in imagining what we called: Foggia Estate in Villa. The symbolic place of the aggregation of our city becomes a place of healthy relationships and beauty, involving above all children and families “.

“We thought first of all about the children,” added Mayor Franco Landella, “because it was they who paid the highest price for this extraordinary condition of difficulty. Human contact, the relationship with friends and the school, were relegated behind a screen and therefore we thought that with the good weather and the spaces available, they would all welcome a return to a “supervised normality”.

Everything is ready, therefore, for the launch of Foggia Estate in Villa, a billboard that includes over 250 activities, including workers, performances, entertainment, cinema, art and involvement of the city and the people who finally return to meet in physical spaces and not only in the virtual ones of the social channels (remember that throughout the closing period, the Umberto Giordano theater continued with constant “virtual” programming, to be close to its audience and the city).

For participation in the workshops, a dedicated web page was made available to the public, on the civic network website, on the “eventbrite” platform through which, at the following link https://www.eventbrite.it/o/ comune-di-foggia-assessorato-alla-cultura-30328803846, it is possible to easily enroll children and young people in workshops organized for the summer. In addition, the telephone numbers 0881/792908 – 814526 – 814579, active from Monday to Friday from 08.30 to 13.30 and on Tuesday and Thursday from 15.30 to 17.30, are available to provide information to users and to guide the booking of the workshops and participation in events.

The attacker allegedly “threatened the guardian and then started pulling his shirt around his neck.” The victim would not have reacted immediately, “but after a few slaps, punches and thrusts he obviously tried to defend himself as best he could”.

“It almost looked like a wrestling fight,” explains who assisted and called for help. “The boy took the guardian by the hair, pulled him inside the van and was about to accelerate while holding the victim by the head who obviously did everything possible to free himself.” First aid for humans was provided by some residents of the area who, with water and handkerchiefs, buffered the wounds pending the almost simultaneous arrival of 118 operators.

Minimum wage rises in more than 20 states and cities in the US – Telemundo San Antonio (60)

MIAMI – The minimum wage rose between Tuesday and the first day of the year in 21 states and 26 cities and counties in the United States, according to figures compiled by the National Employment Law Project (NELP).

The first employees to benefit from this increase were those who work in New York City, who as of Tuesday must receive a payment of at least $ 15 dollars per hour, while in the rest of the state it is $ 11.80 per hour.

New York is one of 17 jurisdictions where the minimum wage has risen to as high as $ 15 an hour that unions and organizations like NELP have been asking for for years.

But the increase is not limited to this start of the year, as throughout 2020 another 4 states and 23 cities and counties will reach the desired figure of $ 15 an hour.

In total, 24 states and 48 cities and counties will increase their minimum wages sometime in 2020.

In Illinois and Saint Paul, in the state of Minneapolis, they will increase the minimum wage twice this year, on January 1 and in July, the NELP noted.

In addition to Illinois, states that already have new minimum wages include Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, New Jersey and Washington.

The increase in the minimum wage will benefit about 6.8 million employees, according to figures from the Institute for Economic Policy.

Those who will see no change in their pay are employees under the federal minimum wage, which has stood at $ 7.25 an hour since it last rose to that figure more than a decade ago.

On July 24, 2009, the US federal minimum wage had its last hike and despite various attempts to increase this figure, workers will have to wait until they see the results of next November’s elections to try to achieve an increase.

One of those efforts was the House of Representatives’ approval in 2019 of the “Raise the Wage Act” project, which would have allowed the current federal minimum wage to rise to $ 15 an hour in stages, in addition to other protections.

But the hopes of workers in about fifteen states currently living on the federal minimum wage were dashed in the words of Senate leader Republican Mitch McConnell, saying the upper house was not going to vote on the bill.

Added to this was the White House notice that he would veto the measure if he reached his desk.

Facebook launches option for video calls with up to 50 people without time limit – Telemundo Nueva Inglaterra

Facebook revealed that it is launching a tool called Messenger Rooms with which users will be able to make video calls with up to 50 people. This is the latest move by the social network ‘due to the popularity, in the midst of a coronavirus pandemic, of other applications such as its Zoom or Houseparty with similar group video contact capabilities.

The news was given this Friday by the founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg through Facebook Live.

Live with Mark Zuckerberg

Tune in here on April 24th at 11am PT, as Mark Zuckerberg goes live to share some new product updates we’ve been working on, to help everyone feel more connected with each other even while we’re apart.

Posted by Facebook on Friday, April 24, 2020

According to our sister station CNBC, the tool will be free will allow Facebook and Messenger users to create group video calls of up to 50 people at a time, increasing the current limit of the Messenger app from 8 people.

According to CNBC, the 50-person limit for Messenger Rooms will not be available immediately. Facebook users will see a lower limit at launch, but it will soon rise to 50 people, a company spokesperson told CNBC. The limit will vary for users at launch, the spokesperson said.

By comparison, Zoom allows up to 100 people to video chat for free for up to 40 minutes. Houseparty supports up to eight people.

Video calls in Messenger Rooms have no time limit and will include features like augmented reality filters that allow people to add masks to their faces. Video call hosts will also be able to block calls and delete users. Facebook and Messenger users can create Messenger rooms, and they can invite anyone to join, including people who don’t have a Facebook account.

Messenger Rooms will begin rolling out to users on Friday, and will expand to more regions in the coming weeks. “You can start and share video calls on Facebook through your wall, Groups and Events, so it is easy for people to visit it. We will soon add ways to create video call rooms from Instagram Direct, WhatsApp and Portal too”, explained the social network.

WhatsApp also expands capacity

Facebook also announced that it is doubling the limit of people in WhatsApp video calls from four to eight people.


In addition, the company is introducing a video calling feature on Facebook Dating so that users of that service can have virtual dating.

Zoom improves your security

The video conferencing platform Zoom, which has achieved a sudden popularity success with the COVID-19 pandemic, announced this week an update to its software, where, it says, it has improved the encryption system to respond to criticism received for lack of security.

The San Jose, California-based firm explained in a statement that Zoom version 5.0 adds support for encryption with 256-bit AES encryption GCM, providing “increased protection for meeting data and resistance against tampering. ”

The update available this week will also allow the account administrator to choose which regions of the data center their meetings and webinars use for real-time traffic at the account, group, or user level.

On the other hand, the company has grouped all the options related to security in the same icon, which is accessed through the menu bar of the digital meeting, the “waiting room” option has been activated by default and allows videoconference hosts report a user whose participation has not been allowed.

“I am proud to achieve this step in our 90 day plan, but this is only the beginning. We will earn the trust of our customers and bring them happiness with our firm goal of providing the safest platform, ”said Zoom CEO Eric S. Yuan.

Zoom’s success and sudden growth as a result of the increase in teleworking and digital encounters following the confinement orders for the COVID-19 pandemic has been accompanied by many complaints about failures in communication security and little respect for the privacy of users.

One of the most common problems that its users are encountering is that Internet users who have not been invited appear by surprise in teleconferences, a phenomenon baptized as “zoombombing” and which has caused educational institutions, governments and companies to stop using the platform. and, in the case of Google, their employees have even been banned.

Workers’ risk from occupational exposure to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, during an outbreak could range from very high risk to high, medium, or low (caution). The level of risk depends in part on the type of industry, the need for contact with less than 6 feet of people known or suspected to be infected with SARS-CoV-2, or the requirement for repeated or prolonged contact with people. known or suspected to be infected with SARS-CoV-2.

To help employers determine appropriate precautions, OSHA has divided job duties into four levels of risk exposure: very high, high, medium, and low.

The Occupational Risk Pyramid displays the four levels of risk exposure in the form of a pyramid to represent the likely distribution of risk. Most American workers are likely to be at low (precautionary) or medium exposure risk levels. MORE INFORMATION HERE.

Two ways to respond to coronavirus (and one of them will harm you) | Happiness Lab Blog

The Covid-19 is a thermometer of who we are. We live in an extreme situation and people react in very different ways. There are those who bring out the best in themselves: they show solidarity with their neighbors, applaud those who are leaving their skin to save us, donate money or work overtime to manufacture masks, or whatever is in their hands. But there is also the other side of the coin. In extreme situations, the instinct for physical or economic survival is awakened, any hint of collaboration vanishes and appears fear or rage.

We have seen it these days with aid between countries. Some block shipments of medical supplies. It also happens on an individual basis, which has fueled outrage on social networks, where messages charged with deep anger spread like wildfire, along with other beautiful and hopeful. The general impression is that the haters (haters in English) are making their August: they have time and the coronavirus has given many reasons to complain. Digital rancor runs wild (especially in those networks like Twitter that favor anonymity). We may be angry or outraged, but for our own sake we should not fall for acidic or generic criticism, let alone hatred. It is one of the most devastating emotions that exist, says the researcher Agneta Fischer, dean at the Faculty of Psychology, University of Amsterdam.

Hate is short-sighted and does not have a good memory. When Fischer analyzed who people hated in conflict zones, 80% referred to groups, not to specific individuals (obviously, when an abusive situation has not been experienced or trauma has not been generated). When hate is focused on someone, as it happens on social networks, it is not so much because of something that they have been able to do to them personally, but because it responds to certain stereotypes or prejudices. In other words, hatred is directed at specific groups.

However, anger and hatred are different. While the first one alludes to something specific and responds to a specific reason (I get angry because what you told me bothers me), hatred is more ambiguous and highly contagious. In fact, it can be learned within families or communities. This is what happens with certain confrontations in soccer, between cities or between ethnic groups. And the most terrible thing, hate contributes little to emotional health and remains in time. Hating wears out, especially in times of the coronavirus, where one must take care of his personal energy to the maximum. If the remaining time of confinement is still long, it is better to reduce those emotions that wear out. But how do you get it?

The first thing is know the mechanisms of hatred, to dismantle them. We have already explained that this feeling is driven by stereotypes (of course, there are exceptions that respond to a traumatic lived experience). Let’s ask ourselves, what has that particular person done to me? Is there anything positive you can detect in him or in the group he represents? The second part, insofar as we can, is knowing who we hate beyond what bothers us about that person. For example, the best strategies for approaching positions in terrorist conflicts are to sit the representatives of each side and make them live together for a while. This is what happened in Israel or Northern Ireland during the peace negotiations. When you live with someone you hate because of what you represent, you begin to see through different eyes. We can do the same. What else can we know about who we hate? Has family? What are its origins? What really moves you? What would happen if we learned to collaborate?

We can be upset, outraged by the situation, but avoid falling into hatred. It is an emotion that remains in time and that, today, is not of much use. If we park negative emotions, we will get the best of ourselves.

The Income 2019 campaign starts: how to file the declaration | My money

The 2019 Income campaign will start tomorrow despite the state of alarm that keeps the country paralyzed. This year, taxpayers will have from April 1 to June 30 to formalize their accounts with the Treasury. Among the novelties of this campaign are a new way of declaring real estate and a different taxation of prizes.

On the contrary, this year the formulas for presenting the declaration have not changed in broad strokes compared to those available for the 2018 financial year. Thus, although the coronavirus currently maintains a large part of the population locked up in their homes, The option to present the income in person is still available.

First of all, the first thing is to be clear if you have the obligation to file the statement and then evaluate whether or not you compensate if you have an option to choose. This year citizens are exempt from filing the declaration. who have obtained full earnings from work for less than 22,000 euros from the same payer. Instead, those who have received more than 14,000 euros per year from various payers will be obliged, if the sum of the amounts from the second and other payers, in order of amount, exceeds the figure of 1,500 euros per year.

How to file the declaration?

Once you have the obligation or have decided to file it because it compensates, a taxpayer has three options at his disposal: filing on-line, by phone call or face-to-face.

Online: Renta Web

Renta Web is the main way to present the Income statement. To access Renta Web, select “Draft / declaration processing service” in the Income website. Next, the taxpayer will have to identify himself using the reference number, the PIN code or the electronic certificate.

To obtain the reference number, taxpayers must enter the Treasury website your NIF, the expiration date of the DNI or the support number of your Foreigner Identity Number (NIE). In addition, they must provide the amount of box 505 of the income tax declaration for 2018. If it was not done, you must put a bank account number (IBAN) of which the taxpayer is the owner.

Once identified, the user accesses the fiscal data held by the Treasury: payroll, mortgages, current accounts … However, you must review and complete this data; Even if provided by the Treasury, errors or omissions are the responsibility of the taxpayer.

Special attention should be paid to: Information on the properties and their cadastral references, union dues, personal and family data (if you are entitled to the maternity deduction, to family deductions for disabled descendant / ancestor, large or single-parent family with 2 children), pension plans (include contributions), the deduction for investment in a habitual residence, the deduction for rent and regional deductions.

If everything is in order, the user generates the declaration in Renta Web. After pressing on filing a declaration, if the taxpayer returns, he must indicate the bank account in which he wants the money to be deposited. In the event that you go out to pay, by default you select the option to direct the payment and divide it into two installments.

Online: Tax Agency Application

Taxpayers have the option to file the Income Tax return from their mobile phone thanks to the Tax Agency application. Although it provides the option of “presenting the declaration with a single click”, it does not allow modifying the data.

To use the Tax Agency application in the smartphone you have to identify yourself, just like when accessing Renta Web. Once inside, it is possible to consult the tax data, present the Income statement, receive notifications (status of the declaration, for example) or obtain the Reno reference number.

Phone call

Another alternative is to file the declaration by telephone thanks to the Treasury’s “We call you” plan. It is possible to make an appointment at from May 7. In order for the Tax Agency to call you to file your return, you must make an appointment starting May 5 online or on the phone 901 22 33 44 or 91 553 00 71.

By the time the Treasury calls, the taxpayer must have available the reference number of the owner of the declaration, the DNI of all the people that appear in the declaration, the IBAN of the bank account and the cadastral references of all the properties they own or in those who live for rent.

Face-to-face

To carry out the procedures in person at the Tax Agency offices you have to wait until May 13 by appointment, which can be requested from May 5.

How to identify yourself using Cl @ ve Pin

Another way to access the procedures on-line It is through the so-called Cl @ ve Pin. If you are registered in Cl @ ve, it is easier to carry out procedures on-line with the public administration, either with the Treasury or other organizations such as the cadastre, Social Security and the rest of the Ministries. The advantage of this system is that you don’t need specific equipment on the computer to use it, and it allows you to do more complex procedures.

To use this method, you must click on the option “with Cl @ ve Pin” and enter the number and letter of the DNI or NIE in the browser. Three alternatives will be shown to obtain a password to the selected procedure.

If you are not yet registered in Cl @ ve:

In the event that the taxpayer is not yet registered with Cl @ ve, the Treasury informs of the option to register. There are three ways to register with Cl @ ve. So on-line with electronic certificate (electronic DNI), on-line without electronic certificate or in person. To register by electronic certificate or electronic ID, special equipment is required on the computer. In the registration without electronic certificates, you must fill in the data and wait for a letter with the Secure Verification Code to arrive at the address to enter the option to register in Cl @ ve without certificates. There is also the possibility of registering in person at Cl @ ve at the AEAT, Social Security or citizen service offices. In this official website The steps to follow to register in this system for the first time in any of the ways are collected in a simple way.

Access through the Cl @ ve Pin mobile application:

Through the smartphone application Cl @ ve Pin, available on iOS and Android, you can obtain the access credential, always being registered in the system. Once the app is installed, it will ask for your DNI or NIE. The phone will be linked to the user when entering a code received by SMS. Once this is done, the taxpayer can request the codes and the PIN (two series of four and three digits) necessary to operate with the Treasury. If the mobile has a fingerprint identification, it will only be necessary to enter the fingerprint each time a Pin key is requested.

Access through the browser with Cl @ ve:

In this option, it is not necessary to install any application on your phone. Simply enter the data on the website of the Tax Agency. The password will reach a mobile phone in the form of SMS, with which it will operate on the Treasury page. It is also necessary to be registered in the Cl @ ve system to use this alternative.

The former president of Granada Paco Sanz, admitted by COVID-19, evolves favorably

Paco Sanz, former president of Granada, 47, has been hospitalized by COVID-19 since Sunday in a hospital in Madrid. The former president already regretted, last Saturday, the death of his father Lorenzo Sanz because of this disease. Paco was admitted the following day after suffering symptoms throughout the week, especially a high fever that was “bearable” at first, in his own words, but which ended up adding to other consequences of the infection. He went to the coronavirus tests three times, but they were denied this step on all of them because he still did not present a serious picture. The situation was complicated and he even had to go through the ICU before being on the ground in the last hours.

The Sanz family is suffering an ordeal. The death of the patriarch, Lorenzo, was a very hard blow. The former president of Real Madrid was at the time benefactor of Granada, a collaboration that began in 2005 with Manuel Benito. This impulse coincided with the landing of his son Paco. In that season, the Nasrid team achieved promotion from Third to Second B.

Then came two and a half campaigns at that level. In the first, the rojiblancos saved the category with difficulty. In the second, with a higher investment, they were one step away from playing the qualifying rounds to go up to the ‘silver division’. In the third, a priori continuity of the project, the economic problems came. Sanz was forced to resign to make way for a manager, with Ignacio Cuerva at the helm, after which the era of Pozzo and Pina would come.
