How A ‘Terrifying’ Coronavirus Surge Will Land in Biden’s Lap

first_imgTreatment has vastly improved since the height of the spring outbreak, when more than 2,200 people were dying per day. Even so, deaths, which tend to lag a few weeks behind new infections, are now trending upward. The country has averaged about 900 deaths a day over the last week, compared with about 700 a month ago.Mr. Biden is in line to inherit one of the most serious and complicated national crises that any incoming president in more than half a century has faced.While other presidents have entered office during an economic slowdown, including President Obama and Mr. Biden as vice president in 2009, not since Harry Truman in the final months of World War II has a new president faced a situation as “complex and multiheaded” as the pandemic, said Bruce J. Schulman, a political historian at Boston University.- Advertisement – Though the country is conducting far more tests now than it was in the spring, the soaring case numbers now reflect accelerating spread of the virus, not simply wider testing.Hospitalizations, which give a clear picture of how many people are seriously ill with the virus at any given time, grew by 63 percent over the past month, according to data collected by the Covid Tracking Project. More than 55,000 people are now hospitalized with the virus, approaching earlier peaks of more than 59,000 in April and July.- Advertisement – Mr. Biden has said controlling the pandemic is the necessary first step to bringing back jobs, and has said that on his first day in office, he would move rapidly to appoint a “national supply chain commander” and establish a “pandemic testing board,” similar to Franklin D. Roosevelt’s wartime production panel.On Sunday, Mr. Biden’s campaign released a first glimpse of his plan for the pandemic, including a commitment to “listen to science.” Public health experts offered initial praise for his coronavirus task force, which is expected to include Dr. Vivek Murthy, a former surgeon general; Dr. David Kessler, a former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration; and Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith, a Yale University professor.center_img – Advertisement –last_img read more

SpaceX Crew Dragon Launch Delayed by 24 Hours Due to Bad Weather

first_imgThe advent of the Falcon 9 and Crew Dragon represents a new era of commercially developed space vehicles – owned and operated by a private entity rather than NASA – being used to carry Americans into orbit.“The history being made this time is we’re launching what we call an operational flight to the International Space Station,” NASA chief Jim Bridenstine said at a press conference at Kennedy Space Center on Friday.Musk, the billionaire Silicon Valley titan who also is chief executive of electric carmarker and battery manufacturer Tesla, usually attends high-profile SpaceX missions in person. But his presence for the launch was thrown into question on Thursday after he said he had taken a series of four coronavirus diagnostic tests, with two coming back positive and two negative.Asked if Musk would be in the launch control room for liftoff, Bridenstine said agency policy required employees to quarantine and self-isolate after testing positive for the disease, “so we anticipate that that will be taking place.”Whether Musk came into contact with the astronauts was unclear but unlikely since the crew has been in routine quarantine for weeks prior to the flight.NASA contracted SpaceX and Boeing in 2014 to develop competing space capsules aimed at replacing the shuttle program that ended in 2011 and weaning the United States off dependence on Russian rockets to send US astronauts to space.Boeing’s first crewed test mission with its Starliner capsule is planned for late next year.© Thomson Reuters 2020Which is the best TV under Rs. 25,000? We discussed this on Orbital, our weekly technology podcast, which you can subscribe to via Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or RSS, download the episode, or just hit the play button below. SpaceX’s newly designed Crew Dragon capsule, dubbed “Resilience” by its crew, was rescheduled for launch atop the Falcon 9 at 7:27pm Eastern time on Sunday (0027 GMT on Monday) from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral.The crew for the flight to the International Space Station includes three American astronauts – Victor Glover, Shannon Walker and the mission commander, Mike Hopkins, a US Air Force colonel who is to be sworn into the fledgling US Space Force once aboard the orbiting laboratory.The fourth crew member is Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi, making his third trip to orbit after flying on the US space shuttle in 2005 and a Russian Soyuz spacecraft in 2009.- Advertisement – The journey to the space station – lengthened from about eight hours to a little over a day by the new launch time – is considered SpaceX’s first “operational” mission for the Crew Dragon.A so-called test flight of the vehicle to and from the space station with two crewmen aboard the Dragon in August marked the first space flight of NASA astronauts launched from US soil in nine years, following the end of the shuttle program.NASA officials only just signed off on Crew Dragon’s final design earlier this week, capping a nearly 10-year development phase for SpaceX under the space agency’s public-private crew program.- Advertisement – NASA and high-tech entrepreneur Elon Musk’s rocket company SpaceX announced on Friday a 24-hour weather delay of their planned launch of four astronauts into orbit for NASA’s first full-fledged human mission using a privately owned spacecraft.The liftoff time slipped from Saturday to Sunday evening due to forecasts of gusty, onshore winds over Florida – remnants of Tropical Storm Eta – that would have made a return landing for the Falcon 9 rocket’s reusable booster stage difficult, NASA officials said.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

The Trade Union of Istria, Kvarner and Dalmatia sent an Open Letter to the Supervisory Board of Jadran dd

first_imgToday, the Trade Union of Istria, Kvarner and Dalmatia sent an Open Letter to the President of the Supervisory Board of Jadran dd Crikvenica, which we are transmitting in its entirety.” At the time when it was known and publicly announced on the CERP website that the pension funds PBZ Croatia osiguranje and ERSTE PLAVI had made a binding offer for the purchase of shares in Jadran dd; when it was known that their offered price was almost 6 million higher than the initial established price; that in the binding offer the bidders, ie pension funds undertook, in accordance with the invitation, to recapitalize in the amount of HRK 200 million within 6 months from the day of concluding the Agreement on sale and transfer of shares, the Supervisory Board of Jadran dd whose president you are based on the Decision of UV CERP, and based on the proposal of the Ministry of Tourism CLASS: 334-05 / 17-05 / 8, Reg. No .: 529-04-18-7 of 19 January 2018, unanimously appointed Peru as the President of the Management Board of Jadran dd Matić, and Marija Galjanić Sovar as a member of the Management Board.And it would not be worrying if the Contracts with the new Management were not concluded for 4 years and if, at least it is speculated, millions in severance pay were not agreed in case of early termination of such Contracts. We believed that there was an agreement between the current and future owners of Jadran dd, ie between the Ministry of State Property, ie the Ministry of Tourism and Pension Funds, which submitted binding offers. However, at the request of the Trade Union of Istria, Kvarner and Dalmatia from 15.02. 2018, which was sent to the Minister of State Property Goran Marić and representatives of pension funds who made a binding offer to Mr. Dubravko Štimac and Mr. Petar Vlaić, representatives of pension funds responded for the second day “that it is in their interest that when they take possession of shares in very soon to establish an appropriate management structure of the Adriatic “, and that they have already sent you, as the President of the Supervisory Board, a letter” to take everything necessary to convene the Assembly of the Company as soon as possible to set up a new Supervisory Board “, and the appointment of a new Supervisory Board does not assume any obligations or undertake activities that could have consequences for the future operations of the Company, other than those necessary for day-to-day operations ”. It was emphasized that they mean “activities in the field of human resources, taking on future obligations to suppliers and the like.”The Minister of State Property, Mr. Goran Marić, is implementing everything he announced earlier regarding the privatization of Jadran dd, saying that the privatization of Jadran is going on despite strong pressures, and according to media reports, his ministry has nothing to do with the scandalous appointments of the new Adriatic Administration. sales company. We as a Union have no reason not to believe his words.Is it possible that you then on your own initiative, without strict written instructions from the owner’s representatives, appointed a new Adriatic Administration for 4 years? Is it possible that the stories that you signed contracts with them are true, in which millions in severance pay are agreed in the event of early termination of the contract? Because, if that is the case, then we have the right to suspect that this is an organized undertaking with the aim of extracting millions from severance pay at the expense of Jadran dd, and then SIKD will call the State Attorney’s Office and Uskok to reconsider.Mr. Basic,Have you informed the Management Board of Jadran dd about the requests of the new owners that any Decisions, except those based on daily operations, are not acceptable? We ask because the new Management Board appoints new people to various positions, changes the organization of the Company, and with its actions and Decisions creates new obligations to the Adriatic, which could ultimately lead to a decrease in the value of the Company.You are the most relevant person along with other members of the Supervisory Board who currently represent the current owner of Jadran dd and as such, the most responsible person for all activities carried out in Jadran dd, so we will, in case of obligations to the Company, which could affect the position of employees Jadrana dd to request that you be liable for the incurred liabilities (which include possible severance pay) as members of the Supervisory Board with your assets.With respect,President of SIKD, Bruno Bulić  “last_img read more
