Crisis of nerves between the National Assembly and the executive on the health crisis management bill. Nearly 900 amendments still had to be examined by the deputies, Thursday, July 22, after a first session in hemicycle until midnight Wednesday, under fire from criticism from the opposition. The text declines the health restriction measures announced, Monday, July 12, by Emmanuel Macron and aims to push the French towards vaccination, in particular by extending the health pass to certain leisure activities and daily life.

The government had theoretically left only four days in Parliament to debate and vote on this ninth piece of legislation relating to the state of health emergency. From the opening of the meeting at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, the atmosphere became tense, opposition groups from both left and right denouncing the conditions “Ubuesque” in which the parliamentary debate was taking place. “When, at 4 o’clock [du matin], we vote on amendments that will have consequences for millions of French people, the quality of the debate is in question! ” vituperated the deputy (La France insoumise) from the North, Ugo Bernalicis, in reference to the twelve hours of examination of the text spent the day before in committee to examine more than 600 amendments. “It is the health emergency that requires this text to be examined urgently, retorted the president of the law commission, Yäel Braun-Pivet (The Republic on the move, LRM). SIn my opinion, the parliamentary work we do is of high quality. “

Protesters in front of the Assembly

A l’offensive, Socialists in favor of compulsory vaccination have tabled a motion for the prior rejection of the text. This has been widely rejected but no less discussed. At the same time, several anti-health pass and anti-vaccine mobilizations brought together a few hundred people in Paris and Toulouse. The National Assembly was, for its part, subject to an important security system, demonstrators having presented themselves in its vicinity. A few hours before the meeting, Prime Minister Jean Castex tried to clarify the government’s intentions. Guest of TF1’s 1pm newscast, the tenant of Matignon announced that the managers of establishments receiving the public (ERP) will have to control the sanitary passes but will not be able to proceed to the “Identity verification” of the person presenting it, this prerogative being reserved for the police. Mr. Castex also added that there would be no health pass in schools and that vaccinated people will no longer have to isolate themselves if they are contact cases.

After a scene of looting in the Bara shopping center in Soweto, southwest of Johannesburg, July 15, 2021

The riots and looting that bloodied South Africa have left 276 dead, the government announced on Wednesday (July 21), revising upwards a previous death toll of 215.

“Since the unrest broke out, 234 related deaths have been recorded in Kwazulu-Natal [est] nowadays “Presidential Minister Khumbudzo Ntshavheni said in a statement, reporting 42 deaths in Gauteng province, which includes the country’s two main cities, Johannesburg and Pretoria, the capital.

The police opened 168 murder investigations. Some of the deaths are due to jostling, falling objects and building fires.

“Mop-up operations”

The unrest erupted in Kwazulu-Natal on July 9, initially taking the form of riots following the incarceration of former President Jacob Zuma for contempt of justice. They then spread, against a background of endemic unemployment and new restrictions against the Covid-19, reaching Johannesburg, to calm down at the beginning of the week.

The “Stability” returned to the two affected provinces, assured the minister, specifying that the police were carrying out “Sweeping operations to prevent any opportunistic action”. Six people, including a former public radio presenter, were arrested and prosecuted for inciting violence. Thousands more have been arrested for looting.

Economically, the government estimates that the violence will cost the economy 50 billion rand, or $ 3.4 billion, with the two affected regions accounting for half of the national GDP (gross domestic product).

A suite of International Space Station scientific experiments soon journey back to Earth aboard the 22nd SpaceX commercial resupply services mission for NASA. Scientists on the ground look forward to having their experiments back within hours, an advantage that could provide better results. Dragon undocks from the space station July 7.

The combination of a spacecraft redesign allowing for faster unloading of research and the splashdown location near NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida makes it possible to return time-sensitive experiments to scientists much faster. In addition, Kennedy’s Space Station Processing Facility is home to world-class laboratories offering tools and workspace to collect data and analyze samples. Scientists can look at experiments immediately, before gravity has a chance to fully take effect, and follow up with more in-depth analysis at their home labs.

“Being able to run ground controls and process flight samples at the same place using the same hardware cuts down on the variability,” says Nathaniel Szewczyk, a researcher at Ohio University and a principal investigator for one of the returning investigations, MME-2.

That consistency is key, notes Luciana Rinaudi Marron, a co-investigator at Colgate-Palmolive for the Oral Biofilms in Space study. “Running analyses on all the samples at the same time eliminates a lot of variability of having different people prepping and analyzing samples at different places. It really helps eliminate sources of error.”

Keeping things cool

Lyophilization-2 examines how gravity affects freeze-dried materials. Formulating pharmaceuticals using lyophilization, or freeze-drying, improves their stability and shelf life and could enable long-term storage of medications and other resources on future long-duration space missions. On Earth, the process leads to formation of layers with structural differences, and this investigation looks at whether gravity is the cause.

These materials will be frozen on the space station and brought down frozen. According to principal investigator Jeremy Hinds of Eli Lilly and Company, timing in this process is critical. “I need to receive them in that frozen state. If they melt, all the information captured in the freezing process is gone. Extended time allows anything like heat or humidity to change the physical state of the material. We want the best outcome we can get from this experiment, and timing is a critical piece.”

Results ultimately may lead to improved freeze-drying processes for the pharmaceutical and other industries. “It is important to do the freeze-drying technique off of Earth,” Hinds adds. “If we find that conducting the process in space gives us a performance benefit, for example, that could be key to a future drug.”

Studying worms to improve health

MME-2 tests whether a series of drugs to improve cell energy and muscle efficiency can improve overall health in space and the role of a specific molecule in the changes in human health observed during spaceflight. The ESA (European Space Agency) investigation uses C. elegans worms and expands on previous experiments that used this model organism to study genetic changes in space. Many health changes seen in space resemble those experienced with aging on the ground, and these drugs also could lead to new therapeutic targets to study on Earth.

Oral Biofilms in Space studies how gravity affects the structure, composition, and activity of oral bacteria in the presence of common oral care agents. Findings could support development of treatments to fight oral diseases such as cavities, gingivitis, and periodontitis and provide insight into how microgravity affects the microbiome of other surfaces in the body. Maintaining oral health is key on future long-duration space missions to the Moon or Mars, and the project could lead to treatments for oral diseases on Earth.

“We are looking at the molecular mechanism of disease and how our oral care products are able to intervene. Any molecular work is time sensitive, because you are looking at metabolites and nucleic acids and they degrade over time. So, the quicker we get them, the less degradation occurs,” says co-investigator Harsh Trivedi.

Quick turnaround also allows investigators to modify an experiment, learning from the first round to plan for the next, adds co-investigator Carlo Daep. “We are glad to get the samples back from the same craft that took them up. It will be exciting to see what turns up.”

Before being featured on WWE as Franky Monet was known to everyone as Taya Valkyrie and managed to make a name for herself in different companies before earning the call that changed her life. He started training with Lance Storm in 2010 and since then she has not stopped conquering quadrilaterals throughout much of the world already in IMPACT (where she was champion Knockout for a total of 377 days), Lucha Underground, Major League Wrestling, The Crash o PCW Ultra, among others.

Recently, he gave an interview to Denise Salcedo from The Sporter in which he reviews all the details of his signing with WWE and his debut on April 13 interrupting the NXT Champion Raquel González, in addition to what her new life in Florida is like.

Franky Monet last night on NXT

► I thought it was all a joke

«At first I was speechless because I thought that it couldn’t be happening to me. I thought someone was playing a prank on me. I always put myself in the worst case scenario and learned not to get excited right away. I wasn’t really going to be happy until I was at the Performance Center in the training shirt and shaking hands with Triple H. That’s when I knew it was real. It has been a very long process in which I have had to suffer a lot to get here. Finally everything was real and I could scream with joy«.

► Working for WWE is a reward for so much sacrifice

«Working for WWE is like validating all the past years And all the efforts that I’ve had to do from show to show without knowing if there would be another after or the 17 hour bus ride from Laredo to Mexico City over and over again. Finally all my effort has been validated and I can share the ring with the best women from all over the world.

“It was a very hard effort to try to be recognized by the best international companies. That was one of the reasons why I jumped to Mexico because it was there where I could work on television and learn from the best and that’s what happened. In spite of everything there will always be someone who will not believe in you and they will say ‘no’ a million times but it’s worth it as long as they say ‘yes’ just once. Then all the tears, the injuries … it will all have been worth it«.

«Franky is just one more step in the evolution of my character within this industry and within my life, basically. It is a more advanced version of Taya Valkyrie. I am inspired by artists of all kinds: musicals, television, filmmakers… I think I borrow something that I like from each character and create my own. There’s a lot of Lady Gaga in Franky Monet. There’s a bit of Erika Jayne from ‘Housewives’ and there’s a bit of Marilyn Monroe. I think a little bit of all these iconic blondes I am creating day by day what you see every Tuesday in NXT«.

There’s a bit of Erika Jayne from ‘Housewives’ and there’s a bit of Marilyn Monroe. I think a little bit of all these iconic blondes I am creating day by day what you see every Tuesday in NXT«.

China is desperate to rewrite the pandemic narrative. The Asian country rejected, Thursday, July 22, the proposal of the World Health Organization (WHO) to continue the investigation into the origin of the pandemic on its territory, where the first patients in the world of Covid-19 have were identified at the end of 2019.

WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus last week requested an audit of laboratories in regions where the first cases of coronavirus were identified – a reference to the Chinese city of Wuhan, a time at the epicenter of the ‘epidemic.

Chinese Vice Minister of Health Zeng Yixin said “Extremely surprised” by this proposal. It’s a “Lack of respect for common sense and an arrogance towards science”, said Mr. Zeng at a press conference.

China disclosed to the WHO on December 31, 2019 the existence of an outbreak of pneumonia cases in Wuhan. But Beijing has always fiercely fought the theory that Covid-19 could have escaped from one of its laboratories, in particular those of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Long brushed aside by most experts, this theory brought to the United States by the former Trump administration has nevertheless returned in force in recent months in the American debate. For his part, one of the officials of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Yuan Zhiming, assured Thursday that his establishment had not been the subject of“No leak” or« accident ».

The Chinese authorities and the country’s media, on the other hand, regularly point to the Fort Detrick laboratory in the United States as being at the origin of Covid-19. Located near Washington, this laboratory is at the heart of American research against bioterrorism. According to Global Times, daily with a resolutely nationalist tone, five million Chinese Internet users signed a petition for the opening of an investigation into Fort Detrick.

  • A judge allows universities to make their students have the covid vaccine if they want to attend classes
  • UNICEF representatives ask countries that have vaccines to donate to countries that do not have

Washington, Jul 20 (EFE News) .- A White House official and one of the spokespersons for the president of the US Lower House, Democrat Nancy Pelosi, tested positive for covid-19 despite being vaccinated , official sources reported Tuesday. Neither of the two affected, who were not identified, had close contact with the president of the United States, Joe Biden, or with Pelosi, according to those sources.

“Yesterday, a fully vaccinated White House official tested positive for COVID-19 when he was off campus,” said White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki at her daily press conference. That person is isolated, with “mild symptoms” and it has not been determined for now that he has had “close contacts” with “other high-ranking personnel” of the White House, added Psaki.

More cases are reported in the White House

The spokeswoman acknowledged that in recent months there have been more cases of White House personnel who have tested positive for covid-19 despite being vaccinated, but did not want to specify how many and only clarified that none of them is an adviser who has frequent contact with Biden. Both the White House official and the Pelosi spokesperson who tested positive were at an outdoor reception at a Washington hotel last week alongside a delegation of Texas state legislators who are visiting the capital, according to the newspaper. digital Axios.

At least two of those Texas lawmakers tested positive this weekend, days after also meeting with US Vice President Kamala Harris, whose team still determined that she had not run the risk of infection and therefore should not quarantine. Psaki assured this Tuesday that Biden -who is vaccinated- takes a covid-19 test “every two weeks”, as well as a good part of his advisers, while journalists who have access to the president are forced to submit to a quick test the day they go to see it.

US judge allows university to require vaccination against coronavirus from its students

Shutterstock

New York, Jul 19 (EFE News) .- A US federal judge ruled this Monday that Indiana University may require its students to receive the covid-19 vaccine before the start of the course this fall if they want to attend to the classes. “(…) The Fourteenth Amendment allows Indiana University to seek due and reasonable process of vaccination in the legitimate interest of the public health of its students,” said Judge Damon Leichty in a 101-page document published this Sunday.

The ruling comes after eight students filed a lawsuit claiming that the school’s vaccination policy was unconstitutional and violated both the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution and state law. His lawyers alleged that asking students to be vaccinated violates their right to their integrity and bodily autonomy, while stressing that the vaccine against covid-19 only has an emergency authorization from the Food and Drug Administration ( FDA).

“What is happening here is that the Government is forcing you to do something that you completely oppose and also, your body is being invaded in the process,” explained attorney James Bopp Jr., who pointed out that the sentence will be appealed. Indiana University announced last June for the first time its plan to require students, faculty and staff at the center to receive the anticovid vaccine before starting the next course in September. “A federal court ruling has confirmed the Indiana University covid-19 vaccination plan designed for the health and well-being of its students, faculty and staff,” the center said in a statement.

“We appreciate the fast and rigorous sentencing that allows us to focus on a full and safe return,” he added. Indiana’s is just one of more than 100 US colleges that are requiring their students to get vaccinated. Historically, the US Supreme Court has allowed public schools to impose vaccination campaigns, while Judge Leichty’s ruling recalls other vaccines that are required to attend Indiana schools. “Indiana requires all public university students to be vaccinated for diphtheria, tetanus, measles, mumps, rubella, and meningococcal disease before attending the center. All these vaccines, except one, have been required since 1993, ”the text states. EFE News

New York, Jun 8 (EFE News) .- Some thirty UNICEF goodwill ambassadors, including pilot Fernando Alonso, former soccer player David Beckam or singer Billie Eilish, asked the leaders of the G7 countries to donate coronavirus vaccines to the poorest countries. “The world has been a year and a half fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, but the virus is still spreading in many countries and producing new variants with the potential that we all return to the starting point,” says a letter signed by 28 personalities from different artistic and sports disciplines.

For the UNICEF ambassadors “this means more school closings, more interruptions in medical care and greater economic consequences, which threatens the future of families and children everywhere.” The signatories are Ramla Ali, Fernando Alonso, David Beckham, Orlando Bloom, José Manuel Calderón, Sofia Carson, Gemma Chan, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Olivia Colman, Billie Eilish, Pau Gasol, Whoopi Goldberg, David Harewood, Chris Hoy, Angelique Kidjo, Téa Leoni, Lucy Liu and Juan Manuel López Iturriaga.

Also signed were Ewan McGregor, Alyssa Milano, Andy Murray, Liam Neeson, Liam Payne, Katy Perry, Sergio Ramos, Claudia Schiffer, Teresa Viejo and Pink. All of them urge the heads of state of the G7 countries, who will meet between June 11 and 13 in Cornwall (United Kingdom), to guarantee a “fair and equitable supply” of vaccines to income countries low and medium. The G7 meeting will bring together the leaders of the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Canada and Japan, and will facilitate bilateral meetings such as the one scheduled between French President Emmanuel Macron and his American counterpart, Joe Biden.

“The pandemic will not end anywhere until it has ended everywhere, and that means getting vaccines to all countries, as quickly and equitably as possible. The G7 Summit this weekend is a vital opportunity for you to agree on actions that will take vaccines where they are most needed and quickly, ”the document reads. Unicef ​​estimates that the G7 countries will soon have enough doses to donate 20% of their vaccines between June and August, which would represent a total of 150 million doses, without this translating into a “significant delay” in the plans of vaccination of its adult population. “We ask that you make these urgent donations before August and establish a roadmap to increase donations as supplies increase,” underscore the signatories, who conclude the note with a shout: “DONATE 20% OF VACCINES AVAILABLE. PROTECT US ALL. DONATE DOSE NOW ”. EFE News

Having given up on any festive aspect, the Tokyo Olympics turned into an obsession with health. The Japanese government and the organizers have multiplied prevention protocols and measures since February, worried about the impact on Covid-19 contamination of such an unpopular event.

The latest decision to date, the executive on July 11 asked duty-free stores to verify the date of entry into Japan of their customers. This involves monitoring compliance with the fourteen days of isolation to which they are required upon their arrival in the Archipelago, and which prohibits them from using public transport or from interacting with people outside of Olympic activities.

For the participants in the Olympics, this decision is in addition to the state of emergency – which fixes the closure of bars and restaurants at 8 p.m. – imposed in Tokyo to deal with an increase in contamination, and a whole series of measures detailed by the Tokyo 2020 organizing committee in six “Playbooks”. These are supposed to guarantee “Safe and healthy games”, with the credo of locking the participants in a sanitary bubble including the wearing of a mask, respect for distances and repeated tests, while avoiding contact with the local population.

Each Playbook concerns a category of participants: athletes, the press, the “Olympic family” or even members of federations and other marketing personnel. They detail the behaviors to follow upon arrival, during the stay and when leaving.

Quarantine controlled by GPS

The measures for “athletes and officials” are undoubtedly the most severe since they provide for daily tests (every four days for journalists). Their movements are limited to round trips between the hotel and the training and competition venues. They must leave Japan the day after their ordeal.

For all categories, each delegation or company must designate a CLO, “Covid-19 Liaison Officer”, responsible for liaising with the organizers to transmit the scheduled timetables.

Vaccination protects against the corona virus – at least in theory. But some Covid patients fall ill despite double vaccinations. This can have several reasons.

Frankfurt – The Corona * pandemic is picking up speed again worldwide. The number of cases with the coronavirus is also increasing in Germany. And that despite the fact that almost half of the German population has now been vaccinated twice. There are similar observations in Israel and Great Britain.

Even severe Covid courses that end in the hospital are apparently possible despite a double vaccination. But how can that be? There are mutliple reasons for this.

Reason 1: The Delta variant

Clearly, the delta variant has not exactly made the fight against the corona pandemic any easier. It spreads faster, is more aggressive – and is suspected of reducing the effect of the vaccine *. According to the Ministry of Health in Israel, the effectiveness of the Pfizer / Biontech vaccine has been decreasing since the Delta variant *. According to this, the effectiveness of Biontech’s vaccine has fallen to 64%.

In fact, initial studies show that the vaccines – not just the Biontech / Pfizer * vaccine – are less effective against Delta than against the wild type of Sars-CoV-2. There is a risk of infection, especially with just one injected dose. Virologist Christian Drosten * pointed this out a few weeks ago. Drosten has repeatedly emphasized that a second vaccination is necessary. Missing a second vaccination is devastating, the Charité virologist recently explained in the NDR podcast “Coronavirus Update”: “Things like that should just not happen.”

The Standing Vaccination Commission (Stiko) recommends the so-called cross vaccinations for a higher effectiveness against Delta. People receive the vaccine from Astrazeneca * in the first round, and then an mRNA vaccine (from Biontech, for example) in the second round. According to experts, the immune response should be significantly increased after two different vaccines. We are talking about a heterologous vaccination scheme.

Reason 2: The effect of the corona vaccination can wear off after six months

Another reason for getting Covid-19 despite double vaccinations can be the time factor. Because the effect of the vaccines probably wears off over time. Here, too, the first suspicions come from Israel, which is already significantly further ahead with its vaccination campaign than Germany, for example. According to the Johns Hopkins University, almost 70% of the population there is fully vaccinated. Here, too, the vaccine from Biontech and Pfizer is particularly affected.

The manufacturer emphasized in a message: “As has already been made clear from the practical application data collected by the Israeli Ministry of Health, the protective effect of the vaccine against infections and symptomatic diseases decreases six months after the second vaccination.”

And in this way the manufacturer brings a third dose of vaccine into play. A refresher of the corona vaccination with Biontech could soon be necessary *, is the suggestion from Biontech. We are talking about a period of “six to twelve months after the complete vaccination”. There was severe criticism from the WHO for this proposal *. The WHO Director General, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, criticized the ethical consequences of recommending a third corona vaccination from Biontech and Pfizer.

Health Minister Jens Spahn * (CDU *) recently announced at a press conference that particularly vulnerable patients will be offered a third dose this autumn.

Reason 3: Even the corona vaccination does not work 100 percent

It applies to a flu vaccination, it also applies to Corona. A vaccination against the coronavirus never provides 100% protection. The admission studies have already shown that. Biontech / Pfizer and Moderna * state that their vaccines have a reduced risk of infection by 95% after double vaccination, Astrazeneca is 70%.

After all: the manufacturers promise protection against a severe course of Covid-19 after the second vaccination. The problem: The data come from the registration studies in which people with a weakened immune system did not take part due to the high risk. In other words: The data are only valid to a limited extent for those people for whom the risk of a severe course after an infection with Sars-CoV-2 is increased.

In June, for example, Thomas Mertens, chairman of Stiko, said: “There are now several studies that show that vaccination against Covid-19 does not work as well in people whose immune system is slowed down with medication as it does in others.” Depending on the extent of the immunosuppression and the drugs used, the immune response is significantly worse or even fails despite a full vaccination. “

Mertens therefore assumes that the double vaccination does not work as desired in some high-risk patients due to their already weakened immune system. According to initial studies, this mainly includes the elderly, cancer patients or organ transplants. (nc) * fr.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.

Seventeen interminable years.

The men’s national team will take the field to challenge Germany, Australia and Nigeria in Group B. He will do it with a young group that has their own image in the cheeky face of Nico Mannion. The little boy son of the great shooter Pace, seen in boot basketball in the 90s, and of the very Italian mother Gaia, former volleyball player from Guidonia Montecelio, has completed his sports weaning in the best possible way thanks to a past season, apart from a few small paranthesis in the G-League, between the teachings of Steve Kerr and the advice of Stephen Curry wearing the Golden State Warriors tank top in the NBA.

And then it is not surprising that on the most important evening, in Belgrade, not only did he finish with 24 points but also growled in the face of his opponents, whispering without any fear to the Serbian Micic, the MVP of the Euroleague finals “hey, for it won’t be a great evening for you. ” Now, however, all this is a memory and, reinforced by the arrival of Danilo Gallinari who joined after the elimination of his Atlanta Hawks from the NBA playoffs at the hands of those Milwaukee Bucks who put the ring on their fingers, Italbasket wants to build a new story you can tell.
