Fox’s Arizona Call for Biden Flipped the Mood at Trump Headquarters

first_imgBut by Wednesday, several White House officials and outside advisers said they were hopeful, but not particularly optimistic, that Mr. Trump’s legal challenges in several states would be able to change the trajectory of the race. The president himself tweeted a suggestion that “a large number of secretly dumped ballots” had cost him Michigan, a message Twitter quickly labeled misleading. Mr. Kushner was making calls, looking for what he described as a “James Baker-like” figure who could lead the legal effort to dispute the tabulations in different states, according to a person briefed on the discussions. (Mr. Baker led George W. Bush’s successful recount case in 2000.) The president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., was working out of the campaign headquarters in Virginia. Another son, Eric Trump, whose wife, Lara, has been heavily involved in campaign activities, spoke at a news conference in Philadelphia, alongside former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani.“They’re not letting poll watchers watch the polls,” a visibly angry Eric Trump said, in a baseless attempt to cast doubt on the ballot counting still ongoing in Pennsylvania. Mr. Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, also made the groundless assertion that the election in Pennsylvania was being stolen. He also floated the idea of a “national lawsuit” about allegations of fraud, but it was not clear what that meant.For all of the president’s superstitions, and his attempts to surround himself with the team that helped lead him to victory four years ago, he found himself in a far weaker position this time. In the final weeks before Election Day, Mr. Kushner reassembled a group of people who had been involved in Mr. Trump’s first campaign, including the former White House deputy chief of staff, Katie Walsh, to work with Mr. Miller and others on the final weeks of spending on television.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –center_img But others defended the early spending by Mr. Parscale, who among other things had focused on increasing the president’s turnout with Latino voters, who ended up being a key part of his support in Florida.On Wednesday, the president’s family was heavily involved in efforts to question the validity of the vote tallies. Mr. Trump had joked at a rally that if he lost, he would never speak to any of his adult children again.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Signs of Ebola virus found in bats

first_img They add that because people in the outbreak regions eat fruit bats, education might help prevent people from being infected by exposure to the animals. The investigators found immunoglobulin G (IgG) specific for Ebola in 16 fruit bats of three different species. In addition, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) revealed Ebola virus nucleotide sequences in liver and spleen tissue from 13 other bats of those same species. The new findings come 2 months after researchers reported evidence that bats may be the natural reservoir for the agent of another relatively new disease: SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome). In September, two teams of scientists reported discovering that bats in China were hosts for a coronavirus closely related to the SARS coronavirus. Nov 30, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – Researchers have found evidence of Ebola virus infection in three African species of bats that are eaten by humans, suggesting that bats may be a natural reservoir of the mysterious virus, according to a report published today in Nature. The virus itself was not isolated, and the findings suggest that the amount of virus in the tissues was very low, the report says. All three bat species live in regions where human Ebola outbreaks have occurred. “Although other bat and animal species may also act as Ebola virus reservoirs, insight into the behavioural ecology of the bat species identified here should help to improve protection of the great apes from Ebola virus,” the authors write. Recent Ebola outbreaks in humans have been linked with concurrent outbreaks in chimpanzees and gorillas, says the report by Eric M. Leroy of the Franceville International Center for Medical Research in Gabon and colleagues. But where the deadly virus hides between outbreaks has been a mystery.center_img None of the bats that tested positive for Ebola-specific IgG tested positive for the virus by PCR, and none of the PCR-positive bats was IgG-positive, the investigators report. They speculate that the PCR-positive bats were tested too soon after infection to have developed a detectable immune response. To search for it, the researchers trapped small animals near infected gorilla and chimpanzee carcasses just after their discovery during recent Ebola outbreaks in Gabon and the Republic of the Congo. The authors trapped 1,030 animals in all, including 679 bats, and tested them for evidence of Ebola infection. Leroy EM, Kumulungui B, Pourrut X, et al. Fruit bats as reservoirs of Ebola virus.

Antionia Urlić, Croatian Chamber of Commerce: New regulations open space for improving services in tourism

first_imgThe Croatian Chamber of Commerce is organizing a series of trainings for the application of the new one Law on the provision of services in tourism which came into force on January 1, 2018, and the first trainings were held in Zagreb and Pula.”Representatives of all 14 associations and communities in the Tourism Sector, from the Adventure Tourism Community to the Diving Tourism Community, have participated in working groups for this Act in recent years and we must thank the Ministry of Tourism for cooperation and acceptance of economic proposals. Of course, we cannot be satisfied with everything, something is necessarily included in the obligation to implement EU Directives and other regulations, but we believe that the maximum use of space to improve and enable tourism service providers to work better. We are also happy that in the future, for the first time, tourist inspectors will only issue warnings to entrepreneurs for irregularities and give them a deadline for elimination, and not immediately punish them, which professional associations have been asking for for many years.”, Said the director of the Tourism Sector of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce Antonia Urlić, opening the training for the implementation of the new Law on the provision of services in tourism, which entered into force on January 1, 2018.Operativnu primjenu novog Zakona prezentirao je predavač na visokim školama Aspira i Vern Željko Trezner, istaknuvši da su temeljna obilježja nove regulative deregulacija pojedinih usluga, nove odredbe za pružanje određenih usluga kojih do sada nije bilo te transpozicija direktive EU 2015/2302. Kritična područja primjene EU direktive bit će praktične implikacije primjene definicije paket-aranžmana i povezanih putnih aranžmana, definiranje izuzeća od primjene direktive te pitanja zaštite od nesolventnosti.// Related news: A NEW LAW ON THE PROVISION OF TOURISM SERVICES HAS BEEN ADOPTED”From experience I can say that I have never experienced such an easy and peaceful start of the application of the Law, and this gives me the right to claim that the changes that came into force really deregulated some unnecessary regulations from previous regulations and made it easier for travel agencies. Of course, not everything from the new law is good, but progress is certainly visible”, Said Trezner, adding that it is especially important that the regulations on the identification code and minimum technical conditions for the operation of agencies that only created administrative problems were abolished on January 1. The institute of the book of complaints and the Register of Tourist Representation and the Register of Tourist Agencies were abolished.Under the new Act, more entities can provide services in tourism, but in special parts of the business and meeting all the necessary conditions as well as agencies. “In my opinion, there will be no significant changes in the market“, prokomentirao je Trezner. Jasenka Štiglec, načelnica Samostalnog sektora Turističke inspekcije Ministarstva turizma, pojasnila je prekršajne odredbe Zakona. „The new law introduced the application of the principle of opportunity, ie mitigation of inspectors’ treatment of service providers who violate the rules. It is possible for them to eliminate the deficiencies identified in the supervision without punishment, and it is precisely prescribed even when the principle of opportunity does not apply“, naglasila je Štiglec, dodajući kako se  kazna neće naplatiti ako je, primjerice, nadzirana osoba do donošenja rješenja otklonila utvrđene nedostatke.They follow education in Split on March 15, Dubrovnik on March 16 and in Osijek on March 27, 2018.last_img read more
