first_img Cross said Wales deserved to win the World Cup of Darts while Smith felt England did themselves proud England reach sixth World Cup final Price landed this 116 checkout for Wales en route to victory in his singles rubber Clayton had the chance to finish the job against Max Hopp and he made the best possible start with a maximum following by two darts at 58. He soon cleaned up 41 for a 2-0 lead.Hopp was not getting time to breathe against a relentless Clayton, despite a hold of throw in the next leg. ‘The Ferret’ put Wales on the verge of the final with a steely 98 checkout, as Hopp hung on with a 48 finish. There were no doubles needed in the second semi-final either as the Welsh duo of Price and Clayton ended German hopes to reach their third World Cup of Darts final and first since 2017.In a nervy first rubber, Price was let off the hook early doors as Gabriel Clemens failed to capitalise on his chances and when the Welshman landed a spectacular 116 finish, he found himself throwing for the match.But Price squandered three match darts and that allowed Clemens to pounce and make it 3-2. The reigning World Grand Prix champion responded against the throw to nail tops with his fifth match dart to eventually complete the win.

Van Duyne Wins Texas House Seat, in Another Lost Chance for Democrats

first_imgBeth Van Duyne, a former Republican mayor and housing official in the Trump administration, on Tuesday defeated Candace Valenzuela, a Democrat, in a House race in suburban Dallas, holding a crucial Republican seat as Ms. Van Duyne’s party fought to add to its numbers in Congress.Ms. Van Duyne’s win, as called by The Associated Press, was a key victory for Republicans, appearing to close off Democrats’ last hope to pick up a seat in the state despite what had been forecast as a grim year for Republicans as shifting demographics have increasingly made Texas competitive. It also mirrored the results in some other conservative-leaning suburban districts across the country, where despite indications that many voters had been alienated by President Trump and his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, Republicans appeared to be holding their own and even on track to gain seats.- Advertisement – Ms. Van Duyne aligned herself closely with Mr. Trump and defended his handling of the pandemic, and her former boss at HUD, Ben Carson, helped lobby for her in the final days of the campaign.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Ms. Van Duyne, who served in the Trump administration’s Department of Housing and Urban Development, was previously the mayor of Irving, Tex., the first woman to hold that post. She drew national attention when she was among the officials sued by the family of a Muslim teenager arrested after his homemade digital clock was mistaken for a bomb. (The suit was later dismissed.)She later emerged as part of a self-branded four-woman “conservative squad,” who styled themselves as the right’s answer to four liberal women who became political celebrities in the 2018 Democratic freshman class, including Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. She is now slated to be part of the largest group of House Republican women ever elected to Congress in the same year, clearing the previous record of 25 women.center_img “People are sick and tired of Congress playing political games and just focusing on attacking each other,” Ms. Van Duyne said in response to questions from The Dallas Morning News that she posted on her website. “I promise to be a voice in Congress that is always focused on getting things done to help us grow and create more opportunities.”Ms. Valenzuela, a former school board trustee, had sought to flip the seat for Democrats and become the first Afro-Latina to be elected to Congress. The seat was left open after Representative Kenny Marchant, a reliable Republican vote who won re-election in 2018 by just three points, said in the summer of 2019 that he would retire rather than face Ms. Valenzuela.Ms. Valenzuela had galvanized supporters with her powerful account of surviving homelessness and becoming the first in her family to graduate college, and relied heavily on the strategy that Democrats employed both in 2018 and this year, centering her campaign on defending the Affordable Care Act and criticizing the administration’s response to the pandemic.- Advertisement – She sought to tie Ms. Van Duyne, who was often photographed without a mask while campaigning, to Mr. Trump and his mismanagement of the coronavirus. Ms. Van Duyne, for her part, criticized Ms. Valenzuela for not holding in-person events during the pandemic, even as coronavirus cases continued to spike in the state.last_img read more

Study suggests masks rival respirators for flu protection

first_imgOct 2, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – In findings sure to renew the continuing controversy over respiratory protection for healthcare workers, surgical masks appeared to protect hospital nurses from influenza about as well as N-95 respirators did in a randomized trial conducted in Ontario.There were only two more confirmed flu cases among a group of more than 200 mask-wearing nurses than in a similar size group of nurses wearing N-95 respirators, according to the report published yesterday by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). The result met a statistical test for showing that the masks were “noninferior” to the respirators.But other experts said today that the study has important limitations—including the lack of a control group using no respiratory protection—that cast doubt on the findings.The report is described as the first randomized trial comparing different forms of respiratory protection against flu to reach publication. It comes a few weeks after the news of a study by Australian researchers in which N-95 respirators were found to be clearly better than surgical masks for preventing flu in healthcare workers. That study was reported at a medical meeting but has not yet been published in a journal.N-95 respirators are designed to fit closely to the face and filter out at least 95% of airborne particles, whereas surgical masks fit more loosely and were originally designed to prevent the wearer from infecting others.But health workers say the tight-fitting N-95s are uncomfortable and difficult to wear for long periods, and hospitals sometimes have trouble keeping them in supply. Surgical masks are more comfortable and cheaper, but scientists have not found much evidence that they protect wearers from respiratory pathogens.Respiratory protection for health workers has been a big issue since the emergence of the novel H1N1 virus. In early September, the National Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Medicine (IOM) issued a report affirming the current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance on the topic, which recommends use of N-95s by all healthcare workers who enter the rooms of patients with confirmed or suspected H1N1 infection. The same advice goes for emergency medical personnel who come in close contact with such patients.Study designThe Canadian researchers, led by Mark Loeb, MD, MSc, of McMaster University in Hamilton, Ont., recruited 446 nurses who worked in emergency departments and medical and pediatric wards in eight Ontario hospitals.They were randomly assigned to wear either a surgical mask or a fit-tested N-95 respirator when caring for patients with febrile respiratory illness. The nurses continued to use their assigned respiratory protection during aerosol-generating procedures such as intubation, provided tuberculosis was not suspected.The team confirmed influenza in the volunteers by either of two methods: detection of viral RNA in patient specimens by reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) or at least a four-fold rise in serum antibodies to circulating flu strains at the end of the study period.To reduce errors, the serologic criteria for infection with seasonal flu strains were used only for nurses who had not received the seasonal flu vaccine. About 30% of the mask group and 28% of the N-95 group had been vaccinated.To check whether nurses were actually wearing the assigned protection, the researchers called hospital units daily during the peak flu period in March to find out if they had any patients with flu or febrile respiratory illness. If they did, an auditor was sent to the unit to observe for compliance by watching discreetly from outside the patient’s room.In the end, flu was confirmed in 50 of 212 nurses (23.6%) in the mask group and 48 of 210 nurses (22.9%) in the N-95 group, the report says. That signaled a difference in absolute risk of only 0.73% (95% confidence interval [CI], -8.8% to 7.3%, P=.86), indicating the masks were not inferior to the respirators.Most of the cases were confirmed by serology; confirmation was by RT-PCR in only six in the mask group and four in the N-95 group.The authors also looked at several other outcomes, including non-flu respiratory infections and influenza-like illness (ILI), and found no significant differences between the two groups. Nine nurses in the mask group had an ILI, versus only 2 in the N-95 group, indicating the risk for the N-95 group was 3.3% lower (95% CI, -6.31% to 0.28%, P=.06). All 11 nurses had lab-confirmed flu.Serologic evidence of infection with the emerging novel H1N1 virus was also found in the study, in 8.0% of the mask group and 11.9% of the N-95 group. The findings signaled noninferiority for the masks.There were 18 episodes in which the researchers checked whether nurses were using their assigned protection in the prescribed situations. They found that all 11 nurses in the mask group and 6 of 7 in the N-95 group (100% versus 86%) were complying.Conclusions and limitationsThe authors conclude that the incidence of flu in the two groups was similar. “Surgical masks had an estimated efficacy within 1% of N-95 respirators,” they state.They acknowledge several limitations of their study, including an inability to assess compliance by all participants and no monitoring of hand hygiene or the use of gowns and gloves. They say it is impossible to know whether the volunteers contracted flu because of exposure in the hospital or in the community, but add that their data on household exposure suggest that it was similar between the two groups.”We acknowledge that not surveying participants’ coworkers about influenza-like illness was a limitation,” they state. They also caution that their findings apply to routine care and should not be generalized to settings where flu viruses can be aerosolized, such as intubation, where use of N-95s is recommended.Experts note drawbacksOther experts who commented on the study today cited the inability to assess possible differences in flu exposure between the two groups as a drawback.Kristine Moore, MD, MPH, medical director of the University of Minnesota Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, publisher of CIDRAP News, called the study an important step in understanding respiratory protection for health workers, but said she was concerned about possible differences in flu exposures.”It may be that the exposure risks within the healthcare facilities were different for the two groups (ie, if one group had more direct contacts with influenza patients than the other group),” she commented by e-mail.”Also, unlike [for] a pathogen such as drug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis, much of the exposure to influenza occurs in the community setting rather than in a healthcare facility,” Moore added. “The investigators had no way to determine the attributable risk of community exposures versus the attributable risk of exposures within the healthcare facility.”Even though they found comparable histories of ILI among household members, this information may not have accurately reflected true influenza rates in household members and does not address other community exposures. A high attributable risk for community exposure could have accounted for the similar infection rates among the respirator and mask groups.”Lisa Brosseau, ScD, MS, an associate professor of environmental science at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health and veteran researcher in respiratory protection, voiced similar concerns. Calling the finding of no difference in protection surprising, she said the limitations acknowledged by the authors and other problems may account for it.In particular, there was no control group of nurses working in the same hospitals but not using respiratory protection—unlike in the recently reported study by Australian researchers, she said. “Thus, it is impossible to say whether either ‘mask’ made a difference in healthcare worker infection rates,” she said.Brosseau also noted that the limited auditing in the study indicated only 86% compliance in the N-95 group, versus 100% in the surgical mask group. Lower compliance in the N-95 group could lead to higher direct exposure to influenza in that group, distorting the results, she said.Also, she said, because the observations of compliance were very limited in nature and number, it’s not possible to know such things as whether the nurses used respirators that matched their fit test, checked the seal, or wore them the whole time they were in the patient’s room.”I don’t think this is the definitive study everyone is looking for, but rather illustrates the great difficulties involved in conducting studies of personal protective equipment effectiveness in the ‘real world,'” Brosseau said.Editorial cites strengths, weaknessesAn accompanying JAMA editorial by two other experts praised the study on several counts. The authors, Arjun Srinivasan, MD, of the CDC and Trish M. Perl, MD, MSc, of Johns Hopkins University, said the two study groups “were well balanced with similar risk factors for influenza infection, including vaccination and febrile respiratory illness among household members, and participants were evenly distributed across study hospital wards.”On the other hand, the writers note that the researchers “did not directly assess exposure risks by collecting data on the number of nurse contacts with patients” who had febrile respiratory illness.Srinivasan and Perl also comment that the controversy over respiratory protection has distracted attention from the need to use other strategies to prevent flu transmission in healthcare settings—chief among them, annual vaccination of healthcare workers.Loeb M, Dafoe N, Mahony J, et al.

In tourism 75% drop in turnover, 25% write-off of liabilities

first_imgUntil the price increase, the flat tourist tax in the D class was HRK 150,00, in the C class HRK 210,00, in the B class HRK 255,00 and in the A class HRK 300,00 per bed. With the increase in price in 2020, the lowest tourist tax becomes the one that has been the highest so far. From the beginning of this year until the last weekend in June, not a single tourist overnight stay was realized in a good part of the accommodation capacities. This means that the largest minimum increase in the tourist tax will now be 5 kn per night, ie it will increase from 5 kn in the “D” class to a single, minimum 10 kn. That is a 100% increase. The total increase in the tourist tax from 2018 to 2020 will be 125%. As far as family accommodation is concerned, the income tax is forgiven at the level of 25% of the total indebtedness, although the deficit of physical turnover is already greater than 70%. And while the income tax has mostly remained at the level of 2019, so the reduction can be viewed as a 25% write-off, with the tourist tax is not the same case. According to the same data source, the situation at the hotel is not much better. Out of a total of 1.171 hotels, some traffic was realized only at 622 hotels, ie in 50% of facilities. Traffic in hostels is even scarcer. Out of 355 registered hostels, traffic was recorded in only 21% of them, ie in 78 facilities. Benefits come payable In a total of 33,4% of households, some, albeit minimal, number of overnight stays was recorded. Of course, the total number of overnight stays compared to last year is lower than this percentage. This means that the price increase for D class is double. Thus, by reducing the fee due to extraordinary circumstances in 2020, accommodation capacities in D class will reach the level of 2019. Since the tourist classes have been abolished, the tourist tax has risen in price for all types of accommodation facilities of the former B, C and D classes. In addition, the period of the highest fee has been extended since 1.4. to 30.9. unlike the previous “peak” which lasted from 1.7. to 31.8. 50% of the accommodation capacity is not yet operational Big price increase before small reduction.Let us remind you: the sojourn tax for 2019 has been increased from 8 to 10 kn in the main season and from 6 to 8 kn in the pre- and post-season in “A” class, in “B” class from 7 to 9 and 5 to 7 kn, in “C” class from 5,5 to 7 and 4 to 5 kn and in “D” class from 4,5 to 5 and 3 to 4 kn. As a rule, this is an increase of about 25%.center_img Thus, according to eVisitor data, as many as 67% of households did not have the opportunity to host tourists, ie out of a total of 107.633 households, at least one overnight stay was recorded in 35.958 households. For which day we will enter July and the main tourist season, the benefits that have been postponed as well as those that are “timed” for the main season are not due. The situation is similar with the tourist membership fee, with a much higher price increase. Principle – raise prices and give a discount  The current average turnover of tourist traffic is at the level of 25-28% compared to last year at the same time. Due to all the above, we can conclude that measures to help accommodation in households and family farms would be felt only if the principle of equal percentage reduction of liabilities was applied, as well as the percentage drop in turnover. The highest possible amount is again twice the stated increase in the double room as early as 1.4. amounts to almost 6 euros, or 40,00 kn for the highest increase, or 3 euros or 20 kn for keeping the lowest amount. So far, that percentage is between 70 and 75% in physical traffic and 80-85% in financial traffic. Nedo Pinezic, www.nedopinezic.comlast_img read more
