Жителі Кривого Рогу встановили годівницю для диких качок
Оскільки щорічно велика кількість качок залишається зимувати на річці Інгулець , городяни, стурбовані долею диких птахів, встановили годівницю, яку планують поповнювати їжею двічі на день.
Цією інформацією поділився фонд «Громадська ініціатива жителів Кривбасу» на своїй сторінці в соціальній мережі, пояснивши, що цієї зими в парку імені Федора Мершавцева залишилося зимувати рекордна кількість диких качок, незважаючи на те, що на вулицях міста потепління, синоптики прогнозують нові морози, а це означає, що качки залишаться без питної води і у них виникнуть проблеми з харчуванням.

- Первый «Философский этюд», который мы не удержали, провалились в политический.
Это отразилось даже в названии, когда вместо «Философия постмодернизма», пришлось говорить о «Ситуации постмодерна».
Ибо декларации этих философов оказались удобнейшим идеологическим обоснованием для крушения Западной цивилизации, такой, как мы ее знали, такой, какой она составила честь человечеству.
Когда-то Маркс изрёк:
- Раньше философы только объясняли мир, изменить его - наша задача.
Постмодернисты - вторые, кому это удалось, после Маркса.
Или, все-же, это были не действия, а просто великие предвидение, а причины и следствия крушения - лежат глубже и в другом?

Lightfoot and Preckwinkle reject plan to expand the pool of eligible shot recipients later this month (LIVE U… - Chicago Sun-Times
Here’s Friday’s news on how COVID-19 is impacting Chicago and Illinois. Follow here for live updates.
A total of 95,375 doses went into arms Thursday, shattering the previous daily high of about 75,000 set a week ago, according to the Illinois Department of Public Health. That means a tenth of Illinois residents has now received one coronavirus vaccine dose. Heres what else happened Friday in coronavirus-related news. News 8:56 p.m. 10% of Illinoisans have now gotten COVID vaccine after record 95k shots given Pat Nabong/Sun-Times A tenth of all Illinois residents have now received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose following a record-breaking day for shots administered statewide, public officials announced Friday. A total of 95,375 doses went into arms Thursday, shattering the previous daily high of about 75,000 set a week ago, according to the Illinois Department of Public Health. Well over 1.6 million shots have now been doled out over the past two months, meaning about 10% of the state population have received their first dose, officials said. Still, only 374,722 of Illinois 12.7 million residents have received both required doses not even 3% of the state. Officials are aiming to immunize at least 80% of residents, a process that will take months. But the record-breaking count ratchets up the states unprecedented vaccination effort, raising the rolling average of shots administered per day up to 59,009 over the past week. Illinois has now further solidified its position as the best among the top 10 most populous states for per capita vaccinations, now two weeks in a row, Gov. J.B. Pritzker said after touring a Chicago Heights vaccination site.

Schools CEO Janice Jackson has called reopening high schools a top priority and said she is beginning those discussions with the CTU, using as a starting point the deal that set the stage for the return of kids in pre-K, special ed clusters and students kindergarten through eighth grade. But Jackson has ruled out any changes to remote learning. Shes not about to reduce the amount of mandatory screen time or adjust schedules, arguing she wants students in school more not less. Those comments didnt sit well with Chicago Teachers Union Vice President Stacy Davis Gates, who told the Chicago Sun-Times on Friday: To hear them say ... that they have made all the improvements to remote learning that they intend to make is a slap in the face for those who will continue to be in remote learning.

At NOLA Art Bar, they sipped cocktails and watched a parade go by. At Kajuns Pub, many revelers started and ended Mardi Gras in the bar. None of that is happening this year. COVID-19 is tamping down the joy and the profits associated with Carnival season in New Orleans. Parades that normally draw thousands in the weeks before Mardi Gras which falls this Tuesday have been canceled. In this city where music, food and cultural celebrations are interlocking blocks of the hospitality industry, bars and restaurants that normally overflow with free-spending customers are closed or operating at limited capacity. Live music is all but dead. The toll of this years toned-down Mardi Gras is evident on St. Claude Avenue, an off-the-beaten-track stretch that in recent years has become a destination. Many of the streets small business owners have weathered so much already that, even as coronavirus vaccinations ramp up, theyre prepared for a long wait before business gets back to normal. Michelle Hagan and her husband own anine-room inn just steps off St. Claude. Last year, one of the groups known as a krewe paraded right by the house with a procession called Chewbacchus an homage to a Star Wars character and a play on the name of one of the major krewes and parades, Bacchus. Hogan says it was one of the best nights since the couple bought the inn. I was really hoping for that again this year. But obviously thats not happening, she said. Itll be very different.

Pritzker said he remains optimistic about the states COVID-19 vaccine supply growing in the weeks ahead, Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle on Thursday rejected his plan to expand the pool of eligible shot recipients later this month. Doing so would add over a million people to the free-for-all playing out across the city and suburbs for the coveted and incredibly scarce doses, creating an even harder time for those still waiting at the head of the line, according to Lightfoot and Preckwinkle. While we are making progress every day with vaccinating people in [distribution phases] 1A and 1B, at this time we are not being supplied with enough doses that would allow us to expand eligibility in these phases, the former political rivals said in a rare joint statement. We recognize the Governor must make tough choices and consider needs across this diverse state, but given the limited supply of vaccine, we must also make the tough choices as the leaders of the most populous city and county in the state, the mayor and county board president said. We look forward to expanding eligibility as vaccine supply improves.

Andrew Cuomos top aide told Democratic lawmakers that his administration took months to release data on the coronavirus death toll among nursing home residents because officials froze over worries the information was going to be used against us. The information came from a Democratic lawmaker who attended the Wednesday meeting and to a partial transcript released by the governors office. Republicans who term the comment admission of a cover-up are now calling for resignations of both Cuomo and the aide, secretary to the governor Melissa DeRosa, while progressive Democrats are blasting the administration over what they say is a lack of transparency. The disclosure of DeRosas comments, made on a conference call with Democratic legislative leaders, came as the Democratic governor and his administration were already facing backlash over their handling and reporting of outbreaks in nursing homes. In recent weeks, the state has been forced to acknowledge the nursing home resident death toll is nearly 15,000, when it previously reported 8,500 a number that excluded residents who died after being taken to hospitals. State lawmakers had requested data in August on nursing home deaths. Around the same time, then-President Donald Trump began retweeting comments criticizing Cuomo for his administrations response on nursing home deaths. The Department of Justice requested data on nursing home deaths from Cuomos administration on Aug. 26. Basically, we froze because then we were in a position where we werent sure if what we were going to give to the Department of Justice or what we give to you guys and what we start saying was going to be used against us, and we werent sure if there was going to be an investigation, DeRosa told the Democratic leaders Wednesday. Her comments were first reported by The New York Post. That played a very large role into this, she added, saying the administration had asked legislative leaders whether it could pause on getting back to everybody until we get through this period and we know whats what with the DOJ. 11:27 a.m. How has the pandemic changed your shopping habits?

I hit three stores, and Im usually home two hours after I left. Maria Guerrero-Suarez Fewer big-box stores like Petco, Target or Walmart. More online purchases like Amazon or Chewy. Bulk buying at Costco is nice to cut down on trips out. Been buying monthly shares of meat for pickup and weekly bread for delivery. Ordering out once a week to keep local restaurants alive.

The North Side couples nightmare was compounded by the Illinois moratorium on evictions during the pandemic. They were told repeatedly that the squatter next door, though staying there rent-free and terrorizing them, could not be kicked out. It was a wild ride, Ashley Holmes says of the situation thats finally been resolved after a long court battle. Holmes partner Dave Papish owns their third-floor condo unit in a brick building in the 1500 block of West Farwell Avenue. The unit next door is owned by Greenspire Capital, a Winnetka real estate company. Court records show Greenspires tenant invited a 38-year-old man with apparently serious mental health issues to live with him. And then the tenant, the one whose name was on the lease, moved out leaving the squatter behind in the unit alone. At first, neighbors complained of loud noises and an odd person who talks to Hitler, according to emails reviewed by the Chicago Sun-Times. Read the full story from Stephanie Zimmermann here. New Cases

- Nearly 63,000 doses were administered statewide Tuesday, officials said, the fourth-highest daily total ever, raising the states rolling seven-day average to a high of 55,135 shots doled out per day.
- The states death rate has declined as well. Officials reported 20 more people died with COVID-19 Tuesday, including nine Chicago-area residents. Thats less than half Illinois daily average of 55 COVID-19 fatalities, compared to 118 this time last month.
WHO says all hypotheses still open in probe into virus origins - News24
All hypotheses are still open in the World Health Organisation's search for the origins of Covid-19, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said.
All hypotheses are still open in the World Health Organisation's search for the origins of Covid-19, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a briefing on Friday. A WHO-led mission in China said this week that it was not looking further into the question of whether the virus escaped from a lab, which it considered highly unlikely. The United States has said it will review the mission's findings. "Some questions have been raised as to whether some hypotheses have been discarded. Having spoken with some members of the team, I wish to confirm that all hypotheses remain open and require further analysis and study," Tedros said. "Some questions have been raised as to whether some hypotheses have been discarded. Having spoken with some members of the team, I wish to confirm that all hypotheses remain open & require further analysis & studies"[email protected]#COVID19 — World Health Organization (WHO) (@WHO) February 12, 2021 "Some of that work may lie outside the remit and scope of this mission. We have always said that this mission would not find all the answers, but it has added important information that takes us closer to understanding the origins of the Covid-19 virus," he said. The mission has said its main hypotheses are that the virus originated in a bat, although there are several possible scenarios for how it passed to humans, possibly first by infecting another species of animal. The former administration of US President Donald Trump, which left office last month, said it believed the virus may have escaped from a lab in the Chinese city of Wuhan. China has strongly denied this, and says the Wuhan Institute of Virology was not studying related viruses. Did you know you can comment on this article?

Virus expected to last long-term despite global vaccine rollout - eNCA
More than 107 million people have been infected worldwide and nearly 2.4 million have died from COVID-19.
STOCKHOLM - The head of the EU's disease control agency warned Friday that the novel coronavirus could last indefinitely even as global infections slowed by nearly half in the last month and vaccine rollouts gathered pace in parts of the world. In an interview with AFP, ECDC chief Andrea Ammon urged European countries in particular not to drop their guard against a virus that "seems very well adapted to humans" and may require experts to tweak vaccines over time, as is the case with the seasonal flu. READ: Group of doctors seek easier access to ivermectin "So we should be prepared that it will remain with us," according to Ammon, head of the Stockholm-based European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control. After the latest harsh wave of a pandemic that started in China more than a year ago, glimmers of hope flickered as an AFP database showed the rate of new Covid-19 infections has slowed by 44.5 percent worldwide over the past month. More than 107 million people have been infected worldwide and nearly 2.4 million have died from Covid-19. But disease experts warned that vaccines won't end the pandemic unless all countries receive doses in a fast and fair manner. Writing in an open letter published in the Lancet medical journal, the authors said with vaccine stockpiling in wealthier countries, "it could be years before the coronavirus is brought under control at a global level." The warning came as US vaccine maker Moderna said it was seeking clearance with regulators around the world to put 50 percent more coronavirus vaccine into each of its vials as a way to quickly boost current supply levels. In Britain, a marked drop in infections and accelerating vaccinations have prompted some within the governing Conservative Party to push for stay-at-home rules to be lifted in early March. READ: Third, fourth surge of COVID-19 possible: expert Much of the country re-entered lockdown in early January to curb a more transmissible Covid-19 variant first identified in the UK. The British government nonetheless voiced caution, a watchword echoed elsewhere, including Italy, Portugal and Australia. - 'It's rough' - In Australia, more than six million people in Melbourne and its surrounding area were under an emergency five-day coronavirus lockdown. "It's rough. It's going to be a rough few days for everyone," said tennis star Serena Williams, reacting to the lockdown moments after her latest victory at the Australian Open. While play will continue under the restrictions, fans will no longer be permitted and players must restrict themselves to biosecure "bubbles". The toll on sports, entertainment and economies continued to be massive. The Tokyo Olympic Games are due to open in July after multiple delays. But the games organisers are already battling public misgivings about holding the huge international event this summer. - Record drop for UK economy - European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen urged the 27 EU member countries to accelerate the ratification of a key part of the bloc's 750-billion-euro ($900-billion) plan to recover from the impact of the pandemic. The UK -- which has left the EU and has Europe's highest virus death toll after a heavily criticised initial response to the pandemic -- reported that the economy shrank a record 9.9 percent last year. Finance minister Rishi Sunak admitted the impact would be a "serious shock" and warned: "We should expect the economy to get worse before it gets better." READ: COVID-19 relief grants extended Hungary meanwhile said it will become the first EU nation to start using Russia's Sputnik V vaccine. The country broke ranks with the EU last month by becoming the first bloc member to approve Sputnik V, ordering two million doses to be delivered over three months, enough to vaccinate one million people. Russia registered Sputnik V in August, months ahead of Western competitors but before the start of large-scale clinical trials, which left some experts wary. However, recent results published in The Lancet found that the vaccine is 91.6 percent effective against Covid-19. Some EU leaders seem to be warming to the idea of deploying Sputnik V as the bloc struggles with supply shortfalls for the three vaccines it has approved. - Plans to vaccinate all Americans - The European Medicines Agency has so far approved vaccines for the bloc developed by US-German firm Pfizer-BioNTech, US firm Moderna and British-Swedish firm AstraZeneca with Oxford University. The EMA said Friday it had started a "rolling review" of a vaccine from German manufacturer CureVac, the first step towards possible authorisation. In the United States -- the world's hardest-hit country with more than 480,000 deaths -- health authorities on Friday urged schools to reopen safely and as soon as possible, offering a detailed plan for limiting the spread of Covid-19. The strategy emphasizes universal masking, handwashing, disinfection and contact tracing. While recommending vaccination for teachers and staff, it stops short of saying it is necessary -- a divisive issue among teachers' unions. The push comes as the United States is in the midst of an aggressive mass vaccination campaign, with a goal of inoculating nearly all Americans by the end of July. Hard-hit Brazil's drive to vaccinate its population has stumbled this week as a lack of doses forced authorities to slow or halt immunisation in several key areas. But Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Canada's Covid-19 vaccines rollout will be back on track in March with stepped up deliveries of doses to make up for recent delays.
