But she signaled that she may stray from the WHO’s formal definition of a phase 6 pandemic alert by considering the severity of the disease and whether it is spreading in both the northern and southern hemispheres. Pandemic phase 6 is officially defined as community-level spread of a novel virus in more than one global region.US case count edges higherThe count of confirmed and probable novel H1N1 flu cases in the United States today stood at 5,764, up from 5,710 yesterday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported.

Cases have occurred in 47 states and Washington, DC.[Current CDC numbers]Groups criticize focus on H1N1 at WHO meetingSome health organizations and developing countries have complained that the emphasis on H1N1 flu has pushed other major diseases off the agenda at the WHO annual meeting, the Associated Press (AP) reported today. For example, Medicines Sans Frontieres criticized the postponement of discussions on Chagas disease, while cancer and diabetes groups said those diseases need more attention. WHO spokesman Thomas Abraham said the novel virus is not taking up the majority of the meeting agenda.[AP report]Two high school students bring H1N1 to Tokyo areaTwo high school girls who live in the Tokyo area were found to have the novel H1N1 flu yesterday, 2 days after they returned from a trip to New York City, according to the Japan Times.

Zagreb caterers sent their requests to the state and the City of Zagreb

By on

first_imgAt the Forum of Zagreb Caterers held today (Tuesday, November 6) at the Esplanade Hotel, the Zagreb Association of Caterers presented a number of requests to the city of Zagreb and the state, in order to relieve and facilitate the functioning of the hospitality industry.They especially referred to the lack of manpower, a problem due to which some caterers are forced to close their catering facilities. Thus, the Association believes that it is necessary to adapt the curriculum to the needs of the labor market and provide students with more internships (80/20 model in favor of practical classes based on the Austrian system) and significantly reduce wage contributions, which would make it easier for caterers to find adequate labor.They also believe that the demarcation between the hospitality industry and trade should be clearly established, thus eliminating unfair competition. Among other requirements to the state, there are the recognition of the costs of representation in 100% form and the reduction of VAT from 25 to 13% on food in catering. “In the area of ​​the city of Zagreb in the first nine months of 2018, chefs (782) and waiters (1493) were most in demand. The fact that only 272 (35%) jobs of chefs and 796 (53%) jobs of waiters have been filled speaks in favor of the growing problem of lack of staff. If some concrete steps are not taken soon in solving the problem of the labor force, an increasing number of catering facilities will be closed, which will be reflected in the tourist offer of the city of Zagreb, but also of the whole of Croatia. ” said Franz Letica, president of the Zagreb Association of Caterers. By the way, the Association of Caterers Zagreb is very active and clearly articulates its problems and challenges, and as announced, and so it was last year, after the Forum, they clearly articulated the conclusions from the same. This is extremely important, because just imagine how many different forums, conferences, panels there are every year kao and like everyone else they are fighting for something, and no one clearly articulates their conclusions after the event, both to the public and to the institutions. And there is the main problem, only the same story has been told for 20 years, money and resources are spent, and there is no real action or results, by which I mean market, not political changes, to move things from a dead end through argumentative dialogue.The Zagreb Association of Caterers brings together about 1.500 craftsmen and craftsmen of the City of Zagreb and solves the problems of about 4.500 legal entities of Zagreb’s caterers.,The Zagreb Association of Caterers brings together about 1.500 craftsmen and craftsmen of the City of Zagreb and solves the problems of about 4.500 legal entities of Zagreb’s caterers.last_img read more

By on

first_imgLast year, 2019 was a record year, and it had 351 cruisers that brought 49.144 passengers to Vukovar, which was an increase of 50% compared to 2018. Photo: City of Vukovar / Vukovar Tourist Board Yesterday, after 4 months, Vukovar sailed the first river cruiser with 90 passengers. It is a ship MS Select Belvedere, which travels from the German Engelhartszell to Bulgaria and landed only in Vukovar, upon return to Passau, also in Germany. In the next 15 days, as they point out from the city of Vukovar, 5 ships are planned to enter the Vukovar river port, which will depend on the epidemiological situation in the area, ie anti-epidemic measures prescribed by the Civil Protection Headquarters of the Republic of Croatia and the authorities of other Danube countries. By the way, the first cruiser this season, the ship Ariana, landed in Vukovar on March 10, which started the cruising season for 2020, in which 346 ships were announced to dock, with a great possibility of increasing that number, but due to the coronavirus epidemic, all further entries were canceled and continue to this day on a smaller scale. Guests from the cruise ship in Vukovar mostly visit the exhibition of the Vukovar City Museum, the Museum of Vučedol Culture, the baroque core of the city, and some tour operators offer a program to get acquainted with the war history of Vukovar or in their itinerary a tour of the Franciscan Church and Monastery.

Liverpool fail to capitalise against injury-hit Manchester United

By on October 18, 2020

first_imgThere was nothing to separate the two teams on the day (Getty Images)On one of the most highly-anticipated games of the season, Manchester United and Liverpool shared a point after playing out a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford.An injury-interrupted game never really got going and in the end, both teams will have accepted that the end result was a just one. Liverpool will have hoped for more but the stalemate takes them a point ahead of Manchester City at the Premier League summit.Here are the key talking points from Old Trafford.Solskjaer sends Sanchez a messageOle Gunnar Solskjaer’s preparations for the game had taken a hit after both Nemanja Matic and Anthony Martial were ruled out on the eve of it and his plans suffered a further dent inside the opening 25 minutes as both Ander Herrera and Juan Mata hobbled away from the action.AdvertisementAdvertisementIt looked at one stage as though the Norwegian would have to use his full complement of substitutes inside the opening half-hour with Marcus Rashford also struggling after receiving a hefty whack to his ankle from England colleague Jordan Henderson. The adrenaline probably got the Mancunian through it.Although chucking Alexis Sanchez on in place of Herrera would have been a ballsy move, switching the Chilean on for the Mata would have been a more straightforward decision. Instead, Solskjaer called upon a half-fit Jesse Lingard to plug the gap – a rather damning indictment of Sanchez’s current standing in the pecking order. 3 – Manchester United are the first team to make three substitutions in the first half of a Premier League game since Burnley in January 2015 vs Newcastle United. Ailing. #MUNLIV pic.twitter.com/tjWhNuxLMy— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) February 24, 2019 Jurgen Klopp cut a frustrated figure throughout the game at Old Trafford (Getty Images)A draw against Old Trafford must never be taken for granted, of course, particularly given the exhilarating form United have been in under their interim manager, yet given all of the problems the hosts faced in the build-up and during the game itself, this was a huge opportunity for Liverpool to lay down a marker and get a massive victory.AdvertisementInstead, they offered a damp squib of a performance, failing to test David De Gea with anything of note and struggling to dominate against an opponent whose match plans were thrown into disarray in the first half and who virtually played the entire second half a man light due to Rashford’s restrictive injury.Liverpool may yet end their long wait for a Premier League title come what May but their recent wobble has thrown up valid question marks over their temperament and ability to overcome that mental hurdle and get over the line.A reaction against in-form Watford on Wednesday is most certainly required.More: Manchester United FCRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starNew Manchester United signing Facundo Pellistri responds to Edinson Cavani praiseEx-Man Utd coach blasts Ed Woodward for two key transfer errors Oliver Young-MylesSunday 24 Feb 2019 4:15 pmShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link66Shares Liverpool fail to capitalise against injury-hit Manchester United When Lingard himself had to come off shortly after being brilliantly thwarted by Alisson as he tried to round the Brazilian, Solskjaer had virtually no option to turn to Sanchez. Had one of Diogo Dalot, Eric Bailly or Fred been preferred in that scenario the obituaries of Sanchez’s career would undoubtedly have started to have been written.One of Solskjaer’s biggest accomplishments since assuming the reigns at Old Trafford has been to resurrect the form of Paul Pogba, Martial and Rashford yet Sanchez has been the exception to the rule. A goal against former club Arsenal aside, he has continued to be a colossal disappointment in a United shirt under new management.In fairness to United’s No.7, the circumstances weren’t there for him to make much of an impact today. Solskjaer re-jigged his side at the interval with United set-up in a defensive 4-5-1 shape with Sanchez virtually playing as a second left-back. Still, it was another game in which he failed to make an impact and the clock is ticking on his United career.Subdued Salah subbed offIn the opening minutes of the game, Mohamed Salah danced away from his opposite man Luke Shaw in a piece of play that made you worry it could be a long afternoon for the United left-back. That was as good as it got for Salah, though, as yet again he struggled to exert any influence in a big game.The Egyptian failed to score or provide an assist for the seventh time in eight games against top-six opponents this season. Furthermore, his only strike against one of Liverpool’s direct rivals came from the penalty spot against Arsenal in December.After smashing records galore during his first season in a Liverpool shirt, Salah was always going to become a marked man in his second campaign making things more difficult for him to have quite the same remarkable impact as before.center_img Advertisement Mohamed Salah had a dreadful afternoon at Old Trafford (Getty Images)Being doubled up on by opponents hasn’t stopped Salah smashing goals in against lesser opponents as a record of 17 league goals already demonstrates, yet in the bigger games against the cream of the crop, he is undoubtedly finding it difficult.AdvertisementAdvertisementNothing came off for Salah on the day. His touch deserted him, his decision-making was all over the place and he failed to register a single shot on target or create a chance during his time on the pitch. With Liverpool chasing a winner, it was Salah who made way for Divock Origi. Such a scenario would have been unthinkable last season.Shaw was excellent, winning the man of the match award for his efforts in stifling Salah, yet he isn’t the first left-back to do so this term. Liverpool have not been at their best for a number of weeks now and they will need their ‘Egyptian King’ to rediscover his mojo quickly if they are to get their title challenge back on track.More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityLiverpool show title nerves againHaving not won a top-flight title since 1990, the big question on everyone’s lips has been can Liverpool handle the pressure of being Premier League title favourites?During the first half of the season, there were no signs of nerves as Liverpool racked up victories and clean sheets for fun en route to opening up a seven-point gap over their nearest challengers Manchester City.As the season has progressed, though, Liverpool have looked far less assured, dropping points against Leicester City and West Ham to allow City back in. The swashbuckling football has subsided of late, making way for a series of nervy performances. Advertisement Commentlast_img read more
