Note the wide range of activities suggested in this letter. It’s not just that you can send someone with a gun down to “investigate” the not-so-violent crime of potential voter fraud, you can send an armed federal agent to “prevent” crimes that haven’t happened. In other words … you can stand someone in to fiddle with the safety on their Glock while the elderly woman in front of them tries to decide if that mark for Joe Biden is dark enough to count. Do you think so, ma’am? Do you really think so?The raft of frivolous lawsuits being cranked out by Trump are being thrown out of court left and right, but Barr doesn’t need to go before a judge to make a request for adding some real heavy metal to the voting process. By a complete coincidence, the letter telling federal prosecutors to send forth their troops came just before Trump issued a statement saying: “We want all voting to stop.” When someone asks why the process is going so slowly, the answer might be that it’s difficult to work when you’re genuinely “under the gun.”- Advertisement – – Advertisement – As The New York Times reports, Barr’s Wednesday letter practices some very careful lawyering. Election law actually does prohibit the positioning of armed federal officers at polling stations, because legislators rightly perceived that having someone in uniform standing over voters with a rifle lent things a very developing-world appearance. In addition to looking bad, it’s simply bad.But the hairsplitter general determined that just because you can’t direct a barrel at voters when they’ve got their pens over a ballot doesn’t mean you can’t wring some sweat out of the person trying to read the ballot. As the Department of Justice letter notes, election law “does not prevent armed federal law enforcement persons from responding to, investigate, or prevent federal crimes at closed polling places or at other locations where votes are being counted.”- Advertisement –

Aug 4, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – A swan tested positive for H5N1 avian influenza at a German zoo yesterday, signaling the virus’s re-emergence in the country after a 3-month lull.A black Australian swan at the Dresden Zoo in eastern Germany was found dead on Aug 1, but zoo officials weren’t too concerned at first because deaths in the breed are common, zoo biologist Ron Brockmann told Deutsche Presse-Agentur (DPA). But after the bird tested positive for H5N1 yesterday, he said, the zoo quarantined other animals and sought government permission to vaccinate the rest of the zoo’s collection of 720 birds of 112 species.The swan was the first zoo animal infected in Germany, according to the story. Brockmann said the virus might have entered the zoo last winter when wild birds visited the zoo’s ponds. The staff is worried that other animals in the zoo may become infected with the H5N1 virus if they eat dead birds, he said.Germany’s last outbreaks of H5N1 avian flu were in February among wild birds and in April in farm poultry, Agence France-Presse reported today.In other developments, a man in Vietnam who was hospitalized with possible avian flu tested negative yesterday, according to news services. The patient is from the southern province of Kien Giang, on the Cambodian border in the Mekong Delta. Vietnam hasn’t had a confirmed human H5N1 case since November 2005.Three people in Thailand have also been cleared of H5N1 infection, according to the Bangkok Post. One is a 9-year-old girl from Lop Buri province in central Thailand who died 2 days ago. The other two patients—a 17-year-old boy and a 42-year-old woman—are from Chachoengsao province, east of Bangkok. The tests indicated that all three patients had a type A flu virus, but not H5N1, the newspaper said.As of yesterday, the Thai Health Ministry reported that 97 patients from 24 provinces were under surveillance for possible avian flu. Those numbers were down from 164 patients in 21 provinces the previous day.Thailand’s only confirmed human H5N1 case this year was in a 17-year-old boy from Phichit province who died of the disease Jul 24. A report in the Aug 3 Eurosurveillance Weekly suggests that the boy’s death indicates that poultry deaths in Thailand are being underreported. The authors observe that poultry deaths in the country were not reported until Jul 24, the day the boy died.The boy’s case may be an example of a “sentinel human,” meaning a human H5N1 case that triggers reporting of the disease in poultry, the report says.See also:Eurosurveillance Weekly report on avian influenza in Thailandhttp://www.eurosurveillance.org/ViewArticle.aspx?ArticleId=3012
Oct 7, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – The number of children who have died from a combination of influenza infection and bacterial pneumonia—in many cases due to the superbug methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)—has risen sharply over the past few years, federal epidemiologists say in a new report that urges flu shots as a preventative.Overall, the researchers say, child deaths from influenza are relatively uncommon. There were 166 between autumn 2004 and spring 2007, according to a new national reporting system, only a few more than the 153 that occurred in the harsh 2003-04 flu season and prompted the reporting system’s founding. But child deaths from flu are rising, and serious complications from bacterial infections such as MRSA are playing a much larger role.Staph infection is difficult to prevent: The bacterium lives on the skin and in the nostrils and causes disease unpredictably. But “you can’t have this overwhelming catastrophic complication without also having the flu, so if you can prevent the flu, you can prevent the coinfection,” Lyn Finelli, DrPH, chief of influenza surveillance at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said in an interview.Finelli is lead author of the report in the October issue of Pediatrics, which is co-authored by flu and MRSA researchers from two CDC divisions. The article analyzes reports of child deaths from flu filed by 39 states and two local health departments since the CDC made child death from flu a nationally reportable illness in 2004.Issue emerged 4 years agoThe rate at which children die because of flu is thinly researched; it emerged as an important health issue only after the 153 deaths in the 2003-04 season were tallied. Up to that point, modeling based on flu surveillance reports and death-certificate data had estimated that 28 to 92 children younger than 5 died of flu each year in the United States.The new surveillance system, which the authors acknowledge does not yet report all deaths, found 47 child deaths from flu in the 2004-05 season, 46 in 2005-06, and 73 in 2006-07, all relatively mild flu seasons. (Preliminary reports from 2007-08, not included in the paper, have identified 86 deaths.) The deaths were very rapid: 45% of the children died within 72 hours of their first symptoms and 75% died within a week, while 43% died either at home or in an emergency room.Bacterial infection superimposed on flu was not the only cause of death; children also died from seizures, encephalitis, and shock. But it played an important role: Coinfections were involved in 6%, 15%, and 34% in the three successive seasons, a fivefold increase. Almost all of that increase was due to S aureus: There were one staph infection in 2004-05, 3 in 2005-06, and 22 in 2006-07, and 64% of the staph infections were drug-resistant.(Oddly, very little illness was attributed to Streptococcus pneumoniae [pneumococcus] historically the No. 1 cause of pneumonia in children—a finding that may reflect the influence of new pneumococcal vaccines.)Staph pneumonia is not a new phenomenon; from 3% to 10% of pneumonias that begin outside hospitals have been attributed to staph, but those pneumonias tend to occur in the elderly and immune-impaired. And the severity of simultaneous staph and flu infections has been documented after each influenza pandemic, in which large numbers of deaths were attributed to bacterial pneumonia.But the staph pneumonias recorded by the new reporting system represent an apparently new development, because they occurred in previously healthy children infected with a seasonal flu virus that presumably does less damage to the lungs and immune response than a novel pandemic one. And they appear to be occurring at the same time as a rapid rise in MRSA colonization in the United States, which doubled between 2001 and 2004.Most victims weren’t vaccinatedA troubling aspect of the report is that most of the children who died had not been vaccinated against flu, which would have protected them from primary viral onslaughts such as encephalopathy, as well as from the lethal synergy of flu and bacterial infection. Ninety of the 166 had an underlying condition such as asthma or a seizure disorder, but only 18 of them had received even one of the two flu shots recommended for young children.But, on the other hand, flu-shot recommendations for young children have changed over the past few years; 76 of the children were in age-groups not specifically recommended to receive flu shots in the years they died.This flu season, for the first time, federal guidelines call for all children and teens up to 18 to receive flu shots. But motivating parents to get children vaccinated is proving challenging. A recent CDC report said that only about 21% of children 6 to 23 months old were fully vaccinated in the 2006-07 flu season, 2 years after guidelines recommended they be immunized, and a smaller study this year found only 16.5% of 2- to 5-year-olds were fully vaccinated.Given low levels of vaccine protection, physicians should consider giving influenza antiviral drugs when children are hospitalized with flu, because the drugs have been shown to reduce complications, the article says. And given how rapidly the reported deaths occurred, vancomycin or another antibiotic of last resort should be considered if MRSA is suspected and until it can be ruled out by lab tests.Finelli L, Fiore A, Dhara R, et al.

At the 10th Session of the Parliament held on November 21, 2018, the final proposal of the Law on Amendments to the Law on Income Tax was extinguished.In the discussion at the Committee, it was noted that the Government of the Republic of Croatia with the Final Law on Amendments to Income Tax regulates the amount of the lump sum if local government units do not make a decision on the lump sum income tax for renters in tourism per bed or accommodation unit in the camp. . Legislative changes regulate the range of this lump sum. The lump sum may not be less than HRK 150 or more than HRK 1.500. By the way, so far the lump sum was 150 kn. The Government of the Republic of Croatia regulates that in cities and municipalities that do not determine the amount of this lump sum, it amounts to HRK 750.However, interestingly, if the towns and municipalities do not make a decision on the amount of the lump sum, which is lowered to the local level by the new law because so far the decision on the amount of the lump sum was made by the Ministry of Tourism, the Government of the Republic of Croatia regulates of that lump sum it amounts to HRK 750.It was further stated that such lump sums should be earned as revenues of local governments where the property is located and not where the owner has registered residence. This type of real estate represents a burden for the infrastructure of local self-government units due to the large influx of tourists over the summer without adequate financial compensation. The proponent replied that such lump sums were related to the residence of the property owner and not to the place where the property is located.More information/TRANSITIONAL AND FINAL PROVISIONS TRANSITIONAL AND FINAL PROVISIONSArticle 30(1) Representative bodies of local self-government units are obliged to make decisions from Article 2019 of this Act for 17 which will prescribe the amount of flat tax per bed or per accommodation unit in the camp by 31 January 2019 and submit them to the Tax Administration no later than until February 15, 2019. The adopted decision shall be applied until a new decision is made in accordance with Article 17 of this Act.(2) If the representative body of the local self-government unit does not make a decision within the prescribed time limit, the amount of the flat tax per bed or per accommodation unit in the camp shall be determined in the amount of HRK 750,00.(3) Article 14 of this Act shall apply when determining the annual income tax for 2018 and onwards. Furthermore, it was said in the discussion that the decision on the amount of the lump sum is determined by the local self-government unit, and the funds from renting real estate in tourism are received by the local self-government unit where the property owner is registered. In this way, one local government unit affects the revenues of another local government unit. It is also pointed out that such real estate is rented in tourism and no holiday home tax can be charged for it. It was pointed out that such a problem is particularly pronounced in small places on the sea and the coast, where most renters do not have a permanent residence, so small places have no income from it. The proponent replied that this was a factual situation under the Income Tax Act. Among other things, it was noted that for non-resident foreigners as owners of real estate in tourism, revenues go to the budget of the local government unit where the property is located.The Act was passed at the 10th session on November 21, 2018 with 79 votes in favor, 51 against, 1 abstention, and the Income Tax Act, which will enter into force on January 1, 2019.So, the summary of everything is how the final bill gives local governments the opportunity to make decisions on the amount of flat tax payment per bed or per accommodation unit in the camp in the proposed range from 150,00 to 1.500,00 kuna. If they do not make a decision on the amount of the flat tax, it is determined in the amount of HRK 750,00.Hosts in family accommodation, talk to your representatives in municipalities and cities, to your representatives you have chosen in local and county elections, about the amount of sojourn tax and make sure the decision is made, so that later we would not know.Side dish: FINAL PROPOSAL OF THE LAW ON AMENDMENTS TO THE LAW ON INCOME TAX Article 17In Article 57, after paragraph 2, new paragraphs 3, 4 and 5 are added as follows:”(3) In the case referred to in paragraph 2 of this Article, the representative body of the local self-government unit is obliged to issue a decision prescribing the amount of flat tax per bed or accommodation unit in the camp, which may not be less than HRK 150,00 or more than HRK 1.500,00.(4) The decision of the representative body of the local self-government unit referred to in paragraph 3 of this Article may be changed no later than 15 December of the current year, and shall apply from 1 January of the following year. per bed or per accommodation unit in the camp.(5) Local self-government units shall submit the decision of their representative body referred to in paragraph 3 of this Article to the Ministry of Finance, Tax Administration within eight days from the day of its adoption for publication on the Tax Administration website. “.

If tourists want to explore UNESCO sites in Croatia, it is difficult to find a better base for it than Split. Within a two-hour drive, or ferry ride, as many as six UNESCO sites are easily accessible. Start from Split and Diocletian’s Palace, and then “jump” to Šibenik and the local Cathedral of St. James. On the way back, stop at the medieval jewel of Trogir. Tourists can spend a day on the island of Hvar and visit Starogradsko polje. Just an hour’s drive into the interior of Dalmatia is one of the medieval cemeteries with stećak tombstones. Not too far away in BiH is the old town of Mostar. Also, on day trips it is possible to see two more UNESCO sites, Dubrovnik and Plitvice Lakes National Park. The only site that is somewhat harder to reach is the Euphrasian Basilica in Porec. Split as an ideal central point of research of UNESCO sites in Croatia There is a great potential of this platform that offers a number of opportunities for the development of new cultural and tourist routes and programs, which are interesting to tourists throughout the year, which ultimately strengthens tourism throughout Europe. UNESCO also has its own list of intangible world heritage, and Split is once again a great base for tourists to get to know some of them: Mediterranean food, traditional klapa singing, silent wheel from the Dalmatian hinterland, ojkanje, Sinjska alka, procession for the cross on the island of Hvar, and lace made of the leaves of agave, also on Hvar. HGK – Split County Chamber at the Mirabilia network is also part of the working group for cooperation with the governing bodies of UNESCO protected areas, which carries out a series of activities to connect with UNESCO governing bodies and raise awareness on sustainable tourism in the destination. In addition to the Split Chamber, chambers from France, Spain, Greece, Bulgaria and Serbia have also expressed interest in joining the network, and this initiative has now been extended to more than 50 chambers from Spain to Bulgaria. Mirabilia promotes the territories and routes of UNESCO protected, lesser-known sites and enables tourists to get to know other, lesser-known and valuable UNESCO places in addition to staying in large and famous tourist destinations. The memorandum was signed on behalf of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce by the President of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce – Split County Chamber Joze Tomaš, who pointed out that the Split-Dalmatia County, with its richness in UNESCO-protected sites, offers numerous opportunities for cooperation in this area. European network of UNESCO protected lesser-known sites Mirabilia, which was founded in 2012. in Italy, is in the process of expanding to other European countries. “We in the Split-Dalmatia County are lucky to live and work in a county where four of the ten UNESCO sites in Croatia are located. It is a treasure and a boon, but also an obligation, because it is up to us to protect and preserve that heritage and at the same time to promote and improve it in the best possible way, taking care of the sustainability of the destination.Said Tomas. By networking lesser-known localities with popular tourist cities, guests are also offered new, additional facilities and an innovative approach, and chambers of commerce are there to recognize these new niches and facilities and apply them to EU funds through joint projects, said Joze Tomas. With the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding in Matera, Italy, on November 18, the Croatian Chamber of Commerce – Split County Chamber became a member of this platform. With the accession of the Mirabilia Chamber in Split, 13,5 thousand of its members get the opportunity to create new products and connect through more than 50 EU chambers of commerce.

It has already been announced that France intends to open its borders on June 15, as well as Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany, which plan to lift the travel warning for European countries on the same date. On his Twitter profile, Prime Minister Andrej Plenković announced that he had agreed with Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz that Austria would make a decision on Wednesday to lift restrictions on the movement of people between Croatia and Austria.
