Spaniard Walks Fish in Order to Avoid Coronavirus Preventive Measures!

While the whole world faces the Covid-19 pandemic, Spain is one of the countries in which the novel coronavirus crisis was the most dangerous. However, Spaniards have come up with an unordinary way in which they can get out of their homes, despite the police warnings.

According to CNN, on Friday, a photo of a man getting a fine because he took out his fish for walk was posted on the Twitter account of the Spanish National Police.

The photo shows police officers and a man, together with his fish in a bowl. The man was punished because he had violated the government’s orders.

This unordinary event occurred in Logroño, a town in northern Spain. However, it is not the only case of Spaniards trying to go outside in this way.

On March 25th, in Lanzarote a man was spotted walking a hen, while on March 16th one man was walking a dog toy.

The Spanish Police warned the citizens not to try to deceive the police officers, and to stay at their homes until the coronavirus crisis is over.

Everyone loves the popular sitcom FRIENDS. It seems that their popularity not only increased throughout the years, but it also brought back loving memories from the times when the series aired.

While people are binging the episodes of their favorite series, in order to brighten these difficult days, the cast of FRIENDS shows solidarity and unity.

Mathew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, Courtney Cox, Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow joined in order to raise funds for people affected by the novel coronavirus.

Aniston posted a photo of the cast on her Instagram account and invited fans to join the All In challenge which helps raise funds in order to keep people health and healthy during these times.

She wrote the caption by saying “We’re so excited to join the ALL IN challenge to help keep people fed and healthy during this time.” The fans who donate will have a special place in the audience for the filming of FRIENDS reunion. This offer is something the fans have been dreaming about ever since the show ended, and now they have the opportunity to witness the reunion in person. On the top of that, all you have to do is to be a part of the noble initiative like this, and help someone with the donation. Jen also wrote that it absolutely doesn’t matter how big the donation is, so you and your friends can donate as much as you can, as she said “every dollar counts.”

At the end of her caption, Aniston reminded everyone how important to keep in touch with the loved ones is. She wrote “Can’t wait to meet and hug you guys when this is all over. Until then, keep Facetiming, calling, DMing, and texting your friends and family. We gotta stay connected.” Indeed, the psychologists advise to talk to the loved ones during the self-isolation, in order to avoid the possible feeling of loneliness. Thanks to the technology, it is a lot easier to see each other, considering the fact that we have the opportunity to see each other via video-call.

The news was also shared by her co-stars via Instagram.

How Will Coronavirus Pandemic Affect Donald Trump and the Upcoming Elections?

/

Even though the global pandemic of coronavirus is in full swing in the United States, it can’t be said that people forgot the upcoming elections. It looks like that both parties are perfectly aware of what awaits them in days after the pandemic is not as dangerous. There are a couple of facts that could provide us with an idea of what we can expect from the upcoming elections. Now, we are going to present them to you. Let’s see what we know so far.

Who is Going to Rival Biden?

One of the commonest things related to the elections in the United States are rumors about candidates. Since we know that Donald Trump is going to go after the second mandate, it leaves us with the question of who will be his main rival. As you probably know, Joe Biden is most likely a candidate from the Democratic party. However, there are rumors about other potential candidates. Stacey Abrams, the former state representative of Georgia gave an interview to the “Elle” where she stated that she considers herself to be a good running mate for Joe Biden. The second option is Amy Klobuchar, the Minnesota senator said that Biden knows what is important for a proper vice president and that he is going to be the one that will make a final decision. Other possible candidates are Gretchen Whitmer, Kamala Harris, and Catherine Cortez Masto.

Biden Still Struggles to Break Through

Just think about how many times have you heard about Joe Biden in the last couple of days or weeks. Well, not so much. The reason is that he is outside the national debate related to the global pandemic of COVID-19. Naturally, in the meantime, he became the main candidate to oppose Donald Trump in the future elections and won several primaries. However, all of that is going unnoticed since the pandemic started about a month ago. Since Biden is not elected in any position, he is struggling to present his opinion to the public. It’s not because he doesn’t want to. Moreover, his campaign is organized on all of the major networks in the United States. But his voice is not so loud in this situation. He probably waits for the whole situation to be over in his home in Delaware. It looks like we will hear much more from him after this situation is resolved.

The Protests

As you are probably aware, there are a high number of protests that are occurring in all of the US. Michigan, Texas, Ohio, Maryland, Kentucky, etc. The protesters pointed out that the Second Amendment of the US constitution is under attack since the global pandemic started. Mike Pence, the Vice President of the United States stated that the President wanted to encourage the Governors of these states to find the best solution so all of the US could back to work. It looks like President Donald Trump knew exactly what he was doing. That way he is able to prove that he wanted for the country to be open. Furthermore, he stated that he is aware that some of the Governors got it carried away with the measures and that he will make sure that the situation is going to be better than it is.

Did Donald Trump Lose the Public’ Favor?

During the early days of the pandemic in the United States, President Donald Trump had a jump of his popularity to the level that has never before experienced during his presidency. People supported the measures he proclaimed. However, it looks like the situation is not the same as it was in the beginning. According to a poll done by NBC-Wall Street, they’ve obtained some of the thoughts from the public.

2/3 of the respondents said that the President didn’t think too much about the pandemic in the beginning. This was really close to the Pew poll, which said that around 65% of the respondents said that the President was too slow to see the danger that is caused by a coronavirus pandemic in the United States. Around 34% said that the response to the pandemic was quick enough. Looks like the main reason for the decline of his popularity was a high number of deaths caused by the pandemic in the United States.

The Bottom Line

We’ve presented you with the latest occurrences that could tell us what we can expect from the upcoming Presidential election. There are two conclusions that could be taken from these. It looks like the public opinion about the President is back at where it was before the whole situation started. The second one is that Joe Biden, even though he is struggling to speak to the public, is the candidate from the Democratic party. It looks like we still have a lot of uncertainties about the elections, however, the picture is much clearer than it was before.

This is Currently the Safest Space in the United States

One small city in the United States is successful in the fight with the coronavirus outbreak, mostly because of its geographic position. That city is Point Roberts, which is placed on a small peninsula close to Vancouver.

This is the safest place from the pandemic in the whole United States, mostly because it is isolated geographically, and it is land connected only with Canada. Since the border with Canada is closed, this city is now like an island in quarantine, which helped its 1300 citizens to keep away from every possibility to get infected with COVID-19.

This small city in Washington is probably the safest place in the whole country, and the main reason for that is the small number of tourists, with an average of few thousands of people who were coming here on weekends before the outbreak, which is now less than a hundred.

When we look at it from an economic perspective, it is devastative for the community, but the situation is the same globally. However, the fact that fewer people are coming here made this place more protected from the pandemic.

This place represents a rare place that is not struggling with the coronavirus in the United States, where there are already near 800,000 people infected, and more than 40,000 casualties reported.

Will the Coronavirus Speed up the Replacement of Workers by Robots?

The integration of robots in the production might be expensive, but once they start working, this investment actually pays off.

The pandemic of coronavirus, especially in the countries like Italy and Spain where the situation was the most critical, showed that robots can do as much as humans when it comes to work. One of the benefits of this is the fact that human health is not at risk.

Source:inc.com

Martin Ford, a futurist who was investigating the incorporation of robots into the economic system says “People usually say they want a human element to their interactions but Covid-19 has changed that. It is going to change consumer preference and really open up new opportunities for automation”.

In fact, smaller and bigger companies around the world are becoming more interested in the robot idea. Especially now, this idea is attractive due to the importance of social distancing of the workers who have to be at their work place. The robots are meant to be used for those workers who cannot do their job from home. To exemplify, the Walmart Company from the USA, uses robots in order to clean the floors. In South Korea, robots are used for distributing hand sanitizers and measuring the temperature.

The fact that the experts warn that social distancing measures will have to be respected throughout the 2021, makes robots even more attractive for many companies.

Danish company which produces ultraviolet-light-disinfection robots, UVD Robots, sold hundreds of robots to the hospitals in China and Europe. Moreover, restaurants and groceries which offer takeaway food are exploring this idea also.

One of the possible uses of robots could perhaps be related to cleaning schools and offices. The experts claim that robots will be even more useful if the companies who have been abruptly closed start working again.

However, there are limitations of this whole idea. For example, automated checkouts at groceries still have to be under the human surveillance because they do not work perfectly, which is primarily the reason why people avoid them.

Due to the health conditions, the food industry can also switch to the usage of robots. McDonalds has already been testing robots for the passion of the cooks and servers. Amazon and Walmart have already been hiring robots which are thought to enhance the level of productivity within the company. Therefore, the new situation with coronavirus can affect the larger number of robots hired to do shipping, sorting and packing.

Even though the usage of robots can help a lot when it comes to the social distancing, it can also lead to many people losing their jobs. Considering the fact that once a robot is hired instead of a human, the chances that that same human will return to his/her job are slim, the robot idea brought worries to some.

Sam Smith Believes He Had COVID-19

Sam Smith, a highly popular songwriter/singer, has received high awards and praises for his songs since the beginning of his career. After the outbreak of Coronavirus in the UK, he gave an interview where he said that he believes that he was positive for COVID-19. Furthermore, he explained why he has this opinion. This is the newest story of a celebrity being faced with consequences inflicted by this dangerous virus. We already had the stories about Pink and Idris Elba who were in quarantine.

Source:pinknews.co.uk

Sam Smith’s career started back in 2012, and he continues to impress people all over the world with his music ever since. He revealed that he started practicing self-quarantine several weeks before the outbreak was official in the UK. He thinks he got infected while he was in the United Kingdom. He didn’t get tested for this disease, but he is pretty sure that he was positive. He added that he read all there is to know about this disease and that it matched all of the symptoms he had. Also, it is interesting to know that his sister who lives with him started getting the same symptoms a couple of days later.

Smith pointed out that he managed to beat this condition before the whole country came under a lockdown. He started practicing self-quarantine three weeks before the official lockdown, and he beat the coronavirus just when the complete country was in an official quarantine. Also, he said that he has his grandmother living with him and that he didn’t want to risk anything bad happening to her, so he started with his own measure before the state started its own. Sam Smith was in quarantine for three weeks because it was the recommendation gave by the doctors.

Just to remind you, Sam Smith won an Oscar for his song appearing in “Spectre”, a James Bond movie released back in 2015. As we said, his career really started to pick up after he featured on “Latch”, a Disclosure’s single that ended up on the eleventh place on the UK singles chart. Some of his best-known songs are “Money on My Mind”, “Stay with Me”, and “Lonely Hour”. This is the newest story we have a celebrity their coronavirus quarantine and state. Recently, Pink stated that she and her son were tested for the coronavirus and that they are in quarantine.

COVID-19 and Its Influence on Education

There is, perhaps, no area of life that wasn’t affected by the coronavirus. If half a year ago someone told you that everyone would have to stay at home for a couple of months, all countries would close their borders, and President Trump would issue a $2 trillion bill to support the falling economy, you’d probably laugh in their faces. And yet, this is the reality today.

However, while it may seem that life on the planet has stopped, something is still happening around. Companies are trying to operate remotely; governments are collecting taxes, and, of course, schools are still teaching (or at least trying to). But how do they cope with this task? Let’s find out!

Is Studying from Home Effective?

Source:oxfordlearning.com

Undoubtedly, modern technologies allow students of any university or school to receive all the educational materials they need while staying at home. Books, notes, presentations, and lectures do not require physically taking them from libraries or attending a classroom anymore. Homeschooling saves a lot of time wasted on transportation, especially for those who live outside the campus, and allows redirecting energy more effectively. Sounds like a perfect decision during an epidemic?

Except for the already mentioned advantages, remote education has much more to offer. Consider these points:

  • It saves funds for schools. Infrastructure, personnel, maintenance fees, electricity bills, etc. are significantly cheaper when thousands of kids don’t attend schools every day.

  • Smaller expenses for a private school mean smaller fees for parents. Public schools that are funded by taxpayers benefit as well since the money collected to support the facilities can be channeled somewhere else.

  • Education can become more customizable. While studying at home, everyone can manage their time in a way they believe to be most efficient.

At times, when meeting other people means putting them and yourself under a potential threat to health and life, there is no choice whether to study at home or not. Social contacts bring more harm than good these days, so remote education is probably the best choice during the pandemic. Why don’t schools proceed with this way of teaching in the future then?

Drawbacks of Homeschooling

It turns out that no electronic means of communication can replace old good personal conversations. Sharing knowledge is essential to education, and there is no better way of doing it than gathering in one room and talking to each other. On teachers’ side, speaking to a class while everyone is physically present in one place is much more pleasant than addressing thoughts to a web camera.

Particular subjects and topics require physical presence at school to be taught properly. Physics, Chemistry, or Biology presuppose experiments with dangerous or rare substances that can’t be handled at home.

Online lectures are also a source of technical troubles. Computers tend to break down with time, and an internet connection can be unstable. Issues can arise on both teachers’ and students’ sides, and there is hardly a simple and fast way of fixing them. This can cause significant time wastages, especially when classes are taught online in real time.

Due to the restricted access to communication, students who study at home are encouraged to write more. And while writing would become a passion for some of them, most learners hate spending their time on academic papers. In addition, essays are strictly regulated in terms of format and content, so they aren’t a perfect way of expressing one’s ideas. A decision? Online writing agencies!

Why Order Your Essay from a Custom Writing Company?

Source:knifewarehouse.co.uk

There is a whole bunch of advantages that such services offer:

  • Ordering your essay on the web saves you time. Depending on the length of the paper, you can spend up to a whole day searching for information, locating credible sources, and formatting your essay. For instance, Essayswriting.org can complete orders with deadlines starting from 3 hours. Check out the Essayswriting.org service to find out more data on the subject.

  • Professionals will do the job for you. Entrusting your paper to an online writing agency means that an experienced author who knows how to compile a decent essay will be working on your task.

  • You won’t need to spend much money either. Rates in writing agencies start around $10 for a page but can rise depending on the topic and complicacy of the subject.

The increased flow of paperwork during the quarantine stimulates students to search for assistance, and that’s the right step to take. The efficiency of the studying process is under a serious threat if most of the learners’ energy is spent on putting their thoughts on paper. In a situation when most of the students’ efforts are directed at writing academic essays, asking for expert help is a perfect decision.

However, the extended flow of essays is not the only reason to contact an online writing agency. Most of them can complete almost any type of paper, from undergraduate essays to dissertations and admission letters. And while getting a bad grade for an essay is not the most pleasant experience, failing to enter university because of a poorly composed admission letter is definitely much worse. Some writing services can even design a perfect resume specifically for you.

International Cooperation and Online Writing Services

Universities are centers of international knowledge exchange, meaning that there are always plenty of students from abroad in any of them. And while students of one school can speak dozens of different languages, teaching languages are often limited to one or two options. This can be rather inconvenient for international students, especially during their freshman and sophomore years in college. Luckily, online writing services are designed to suit everyone’s needs.

Even if you find casual writing interesting, it’s hard to predict whether you would like academic writing as well. Writing a decent academic paper requires attention to formatting, proper language, and developed research skills. Handing the work over to a writing agency includes all these aspects together with a deep understanding of a topic and the absence of smaller mistakes like punctuation or typos.

How to Get Tested for Coronavirus?

If everyone were allowed to test, there would be no tests. Scientists around the world are currently working harder than ever to perform enough tests on the coronavirus.

The coronavirus pandemic has caused increased production of tests that are the only way for patients to find out if they are infected.

However, as you have noticed, no country allows anyone to be tested, and it is exact in determining who will be tested and who will not.

Who doesn’t need testing?

Source:aljazeera.com

For those who have no symptoms of the virus, i.e., fever, cough, and shortness of breath should call a doctor. Even if they have returned from a destination where the coronavirus is present or in contact with the infected person, they show no symptoms. Mandatory self-isolation is then recommended as a significant prevention measure that is more important than the test itself.

If, however, you are symptomatic and you are under the age of 70, you may not even get the chance to get tested right away, but the test itself will not change the fact that doctors will take care of you.

Doctors said their advice to young, healthy people with fever and coughing would be the same no matter what causes them – they will send you home in self-isolation, recommend plenty of fluids. You will only receive hospital care if you develop shortness of breath.

After recovery, you will also stay away from other people whether the disease is due to a virus corona or someone else.

Who needs testing?

Source:thailandmedical.news

Anyone who has symptoms after having been in close contact with someone positive for the coronavirus should get tested.

Anyone who has the symptoms of a virus corona and should be hospitalized must take the test. However, everyone hopes that these categories will change as well when we have more tests available.

But it’s not just about the availability of tests.

Doctors and nurses need to have personal protective equipment to perform the test, and since these are lacking everywhere in the world, doctors want to preserve it for those who need testing more.

According to current estimates, staying alone in a risk area is not sufficient to justify the test. And not everyone with a runny nose or cough is infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

However, those who have signs of viral pneumonia, which have noticeable symptoms such as coughing, fever, and shortness of breath, or who have had contact with an infected person should contact the hospital or local ambulance. People who have been in a particularly affected area are cases that are reasonably suspected that they were infected with a new virus.

Finally, the doctor decides whether a test for the coronavirus is done.

Finally, if everyone got the test, it would overload the system. Once done, the analysis is carried to the laboratory. The more criteria, the more people have to do them. And then someone has to call patients and report the results, which involves a large number of people who currently have to be available for other essential things.
