Holder back in 2013.This ruling also paved the way for a new wave of voter suppression laws, the repercussions of which we’re still dealing with as I type, as votes are still being counted in places like Georgia and Arizona. North Carolina:Governor: Democratic hold (but super irrelevant in this context)House: Republican holdSenate: Republican holdBonus! Supreme Court: Democratic holdBattles over redistricting are set to continue after Republicans not only maintained their majorities, but also unexpectedly gained seats. And although Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper won reelection, it totally doesn’t matter: he’s unable to veto most key redistricting bills.Republicans ousted at least one Democratic incumbent on the state Supreme Court and lead in two uncalled races where absentee and provisional ballots will decide whether Democrats majority stays at 6-1 or narrows to 5-2 (or even 4-3).This matters because state courts curtailed the GOP’s gerrymanders last year.But while those rulings curbed the GOP’s worst map-drawing excesses, they didn’t entirely eliminate the problem. While results in some statehouses are still shaking out (yeah, I’m looking at you, Arizona), we already know that Republicans successfully defended their majorities in several key chambers.Campaign Action- Advertisement – But many of those majorities were extremely small.Dems held several chambers by just a couple of seats. If Democrats are able to flip a legislative chamber, the state’s divided government would sort out the aftermath of a ruling or GOP action against the IRC.Perhaps they’d reach a bipartisan compromise!… more likely, though, is that new maps would be drawn by the courts, which tend to favor nonpartisan districts. Minnesota:Governor: Democratic (up in 2022)House: Democratic holdSenate: Republican hold(?—uncalled as of this writing)Democrats appear to have fallen just short in their bid to win trifecta control in Minnesota, though final tallies have yet to be announced.The state currently has nonpartisan maps drawn by a court and is poised to again after 2020. Sigh.tl;dr— This round of redistricting might not be as bad for Democrats as the last round, but it’s not shaping up to be much better.And depending on SCOTUS interference, it could arguably be worse. The trust is that we just don’t know yet.All of these things could be true. None of them could be true.But here are two things that are 100% true:Democrats were vying to flip districts specifically gerrymandered to elect Republicans.While the disparity wasn’t as severe as in cycles past, Republicans out-raised Democrats and outspent them in several key chambers.- Advertisement – But then the party collectively seemed to forget that redistricting was going to be happening in 2011.Republicans, as we know, very much did not forget, and they outspent Democrats three-to-one to target a handful of flippable seats in key chambers in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Indiana, and more.Republicans flipped 21 chambers in 2010.In 2020, they flipped … three.Don’t get me wrong: A GOP trifecta in New Hampshire is a Bad Thing.And this means Republicans get to re-gerrymander that state Senate (and the House, but with 400 seats, that chamber is always a bit of a crapshoot, honestly).But federally, this gives the GOP complete control over drawing a whole two congressional districts.The bad news from Election 2020 isn’t what Republicans won.It’s what Republicans successfully defended.I wrote previously in this space about how the next round of redistricting could shake out for Democrats, depending on the level of success they had in flipping GOP-held chambers this week.Before Nov. 3, Republicans had complete control over the drawing of anywhere from 37% to 45% of all congressional districts nationwide.Democrats would control the drawing of just 10% to 11%.The remaining districts would be drawn via redistricting commissions (with varying degrees of independence), compromises reached in states with divided governments, and/or the courts (when some of those divided governments inevitably deadlock). Sure, this three- or four-to-one advantage would have been lousy—but not as bad as it was in 2011, when Republicans had a better than five-to-one advantage in drawing congressional districts. My talented Daily Kos Elections colleagues have assembled a super detailed breakdown of how Tuesday’s results impact the next round of redistricting, but here are the crucial toplines:Why we still care what happens in Arizona even though they have an Independent Redistricting Commission: Governor: Republican (up in 2022)House: Republican? (uncalled)Senate: Republican? (uncalled)Arizona has had an independent redistricting commission in place since 2000, but with the U.S. Supreme Court’s newly conservative configuration, the IRC is at a big of risk of being struck down.Republicans in the legislature have repeatedly sought to undermine the commission, so ending the GOP’s control of state government would help insulate and preserve it. – Advertisement – Pennsylvania:Governor: Democratic (up in 2022)House: Republican (uncalled but likely) holdSenate: Republican (uncalled but likely) hold But let’s face it: Even if Democrats flip one or both chambers in Arizona, Election Day 2020 was a disappointment.Ya know what? I’ll take disappointment over a bloodbath.Here’s a little perspective.Election Day 2010 replaced Election Day 2000 as the most excruciating of my life, and even 2016 wasn’t savage enough to supplant it.And 2020 certainly wasn’t.It’s an oft-forgotten fact that Democrats appeared to be sitting pretty before the 2010 elections.They held majorities in 60 chambers.Republicans held just 36, and two were tied. Texas:Governor: Republican (up in 2022)House: Republican holdSenate: Republican holdI mentioned in this space last week that Republicans were pumping tons of late cash into these state House races, and WOW did that effort pay off.Texas is arguably the most important state for Republican congressional gerrymandering, and Democrats failed to make the big gains needed to flip the state House to break the GOP’s trifecta control of the state.But wait, it gets worse!Democrats also failed to lay the groundwork for striking down gerrymanders later this decade after Republicans swept all four seats up this year to maintain their 9-0 state Supreme Court majority. Why we care what happens in Michigan even though they have an independent redistricting commission:Governor: Democratic (up in 2022)House: Republican holdSenate: Republican (up in 2022)In 2018, Michigan voters approved a ballot measure establishing a redistricting commission, stripping the legislature of its power to draw district maps for itself and for the U.S. House. Okay, one more piece of lousy news before I remind you (… and myself) that last night wasn’t a total disaster.But on to less terrible news!And while Republican legislators in many states will now have to deal with newly elected QAnon believers in their caucuses, Democrats celebrated a lot of positive firsts.This list is in no way exhaustive—feel free to hit me up with other cool Democratic state legislative first you know of!

first_img The Government has insisted the Premier League must provide financial assistance to the EFL, and has pointed out such help was one of the conditions for it giving the green light to Project Restart over the summer, when the 2019-20 season resumed behind closed doors.Julian Knight, the Conservative MP for Solihull who chairs the DCMS committee, says he agrees football must help itself.“It’s a very unedifying sight when you’ve seen other sports coming together in order to find a way through this crisis,” Knight told Sky Sports News.- Advertisement – “Football has just had a transfer window where they’ve spent £1.2bn, where we have 12-15 EFL clubs in the emergency ward, so to speak, that are in a situation where they could go under.“And having dealt with the aftermath of Bury and seen there the way in which that crushed the community, frankly I’m not really prepared to stand by and at least not do anything about that.“They’ve been given a lot of space, a lot of time. I do know they’re talking now and I would like to think that over the last two weeks while we have set up this meeting that may have focused some minds – let’s hope that it has.- Advertisement – “You never know, they could be now on the cusp of putting a deal together and then we can explore that deal in the committee. Hopefully that will be the case.“But the truth of the matter is that football in this country has for a long time… there’s been a feeling that the governance and the way in which many of those at the top of the game conduct their business and their approach to fans and to the grassroots of the game hasn’t been right.“The Covid crisis has just brought that into the sharpest of focus, so we’re looking forward to the session, and I would imagine it would be – to coin a current phrase – fairly good box office!” Fleetwood Town flag
Mick McCarthy and Jobi McAnuff agree with EFL chairman Rick Parry’s letter to the government asking for financial support 3:31 He added: “It does look to be deeply jarring if you have a situation where you’ve got a deal at the top of the game worth £9bn and then you have football clubs going under for the equivalent of a week’s wage to Gareth Bale, and I’m not singling out Gareth Bale in that respect.“At this particular time there seems to be something incredibly poorly placed with the game and I don’t wish to put particular blame on one of these institutions. I’m coming to the session with an open mind, I’m really keen to hear what they have to say.“Hopefully they’ll come with a plan – that would be absolutely fantastic. The only thing is it’s just a shame that it’s taking so long for them to come together. Other sports have put together plans in much quicker time.”EFL clubs have been particularly hard-hit by the loss of matchday revenue due to the pandemic, with Parry warning several clubs could be forced to fold by Christmas without a rescue package.The EFL says it needs a £250m package to continue to operate and rejected an offer of £50m for League One and League Two sides from the Premier League made up of grants and loans, saying it “fell some way short” of what was required.The Premier League says the offer remains on the table and is ready to engage with any club in financial crisis, but adds it has lost £700m during the pandemic. The committee will also take the opportunity to probe the game’s leaders on the Project Big Picture proposals.These first came to light last month, and would have represented the most significant changes to the English football pyramid since the foundation of the Premier League in 1992 if they had been implemented.Parry publicly supported the proposals, which were developed by Liverpool and Manchester United. Measures such as an immediate £250m rescue package for EFL clubs and a 25-per-cent share in future Premier League media revenues were welcomed by many, but the plans also sought to concentrate power in the hands of the top-flight’s big six clubs.Project Big Picture was described by the Football Supporters’ Association as “a sugar-coated cyanide pill” while the Secretary of State for DCMS, Oliver Dowden, derided it as a “distraction at best” and urged Parry in a committee hearing to ignore this “latest wheeze” and focus on bailout talks with the Premier League.Clarke’s presence before the committee comes amid questions over his role in Project Big Picture.He told the FA Council last month he had been involved in early discussions but walked away in the spring when “the principal aim became the concentration of power and wealth in the hands of a few clubs, with a breakaway league mooted as a threat”.A number of reports have since suggested Clarke was much more centrally involved.Knight said: “I’d like to find out the genesis of it, how it came about, who supports it, who doesn’t support it, why do they support it, why don’t they support it. What was the role of the three bodies that are in front of us, and were there any merits to it?“I understand the way it looked like a power grab, but small elements such as the greater distribution of TV revenues down the game, I thought that was a good idea.” Fleetwood Town chief executive Steve Curwood says only the government can save some EFL clubs from going bust Leaders of English football will face MPs on Tuesday over the failure to agree a coronavirus rescue package for the English Football League (EFL), with Project Big Picture also under scrutiny.Premier League chief executive Richard Masters, EFL chairman Rick Parry and Football Association (FA) boss Greg Clarke have all been called before the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) committee, with proceedings set to take place from 9:30am.- Advertisement – 1:23 – Advertisement –last_img read more

first_imgJun 2, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – Colorado’s new system for tracking hospital admissions related to influenza is a potential model for measuring the burden of serious flu complications and the severity of flu seasons, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said today.Last September Colorado became the first state to require the reporting of hospital admissions for laboratory-confirmed flu in all age-groups, the CDC says in the Jun 3 issue of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. Though some existing surveillance systems yield estimates of flu-related hospitalizations, no other state or national system is designed to pick up all such cases.Colorado’s first season of experience with the system indicates that “implementation of statewide, population-based surveillance for influenza-associated hospitalizations is feasible and useful for assessing the age-specific burden of serious influenza-associated morbidity and the relative severity of influenza seasons,” the CDC says.For purposes of reporting, flu-associated hospitalization was defined as a hospital admission accompanied by laboratory confirmation of flu, including confirmation by a rapid diagnostic test, according to the article. Reporting is done mainly by hospital infection-control practitioners (ICPs), who either use the state’s Web-based disease reporting system or fax reports to the state health department.By Apr 16, 2005, 50 Colorado hospitals had reported a total of 964 flu-related hospitalizations, yielding a rate of 21.0 per 100,000 people, the CDC reports. Cases peaked in the week that ended Feb 19; the same week marked the peak for the percentage of patient visits attributed to flu-like illness, as reported by sentinel healthcare providers in Colorado.By age-group, the highest rate of flu-related hospitalization was in people aged 80 and older, with 207.3 cases per 100,000. The next highest rates per 100,000 were in babies younger than 6 months, 183.0; 70- to 79-year-olds, 78.0; and children aged 6 to 23 months, 66.3. People aged 18 to 39 years had the lowest rate at 5.8 cases per 100,000.The CDC says the Colorado figures are similar to estimates based on national hospital discharge data. Those estimates include an average of 36.8 cases per 100,000 population for pneumonia and flu hospitalizations for flu seasons from 1979-80 through 2000-01.While national estimates based on hospital discharge data take at least a year to compile, the Colorado system yields “real-time, population-based” numbers. “The system provides improved ability to assess the severity of influenza seasons, track the time course of the season, determine which populations are most affected by severe influenza-related illness, and focus prevention and control efforts on those populations,” the CDC states.A national system like Colorado’s could help guide flu immunization policy and help health agencies quickly determine if a flu season is causing high rates of hospitalizations, the article says. In addition, such a system could help identify a flu pandemic and guide the public health response.Ken Gershman, MD, MPH, a Colorado epidemiologist who contributed much of the MMWR article, said Colorado had previously required healthcare providers to report all positive influenza tests. The switch to requiring only the reporting of cases involving hospitalization has lightened the workload for providers, he told CIDRAP News.”Over the past 5 or 6 years we’ve seen the number of positive tests go up quite high, because the availability of tests has become widespread,” said Gershman, who is chief of the communicable disease program in the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. “Two years ago, we had about 13,000 reports in our system, and that overwhelmed hospitals and public health.” As a result, hospitals supported changing the requirement to cover only hospital admissions, because they could see it would be less burdensome, he added.Gershman said that while Colorado is the only state that requires reporting of flu-related hospital admissions in all age-groups, a CDC colleague told him that New Jersey requires reporting of hospital cases among children.The MMWR article says the surveillance program has some limitations that are likely to result in underestimates of cases. One is that not everyone hospitalized with a respiratory illness or a flu-related exacerbation of a chronic disease is likely to be tested for flu. A second is that rapid flu tests are less sensitive than viral culture tests.The possibility of making flu-related hospitalizations reportable in more states will be discussed at next week’s annual meeting of the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists, CDC spokeswoman Jennifer Morcone told CIDRAP News today.CDC.

Thus, according to the Central Bureau of Statistics, the total passenger traffic at airports in June 2017 amounted to 1 thousand, which is an increase of 255% compared to June 2016, when passenger traffic amounted to 1 thousand.In June 2017, the growth of passenger traffic compared to June 2016 was recorded by Split Airport (25,8%), Dubrovnik Airport (17,6%), Zagreb Airport (16,6%), Pula Airport (39,9, 21,9%), Zadar Airport (1,7%), Rijeka Airport (67,0%), Osijek Airport (33,1%) and Brač Airport (37,5%), and the decline was recorded only in the port of Mali Lošinj (XNUMX%).The most significant passenger traffic was realized with the airports of the United Kingdom and shows an increase of 30,7% compared to the same period last year.The total number of aircraft landings and take-offs at airports in June 2017 was 14, which is an increase of 681% compared to 12 landings and take-offs in June 534. Thus, in the first half of 2016, compared to 17,1, the total number of landings and departures of aircraft at airports increased by 2017%, the total passenger traffic by 2016%, and the total cargo traffic decreased by 8,2% .Source: CBSlast_img read more

first_imgThe organization of events, festivals, concerts, especially larger ones that last for several days is extremely complex and demanding, although at first it may not look like a visitor from the outside, but the ToDo list of each organizer is longer and requires a lot of organizational skills and experience.From reporting to the police, provide security guards, emergency medical service, pay ZAMP, provide enough emergency space, trash cans and their regular cleaning both during the event and after each day. This is just a drop in the ocean of tasks and obligations of every organizer, and in accordance with the new trends, the organizers have a great responsibility in setting new trends.Thus, the Hum Youth Association, whose purpose was to gather young people and improve the quality of social life of young people in the municipality of Hum na Sutli, organizes for the 13th time the rock Hoomstock Festival and turn to ecology and give a clear message to visitors – Let’s protect our environment. The aim of the festival is to become a “green festival” as they show special concern for the environment in Europe and more and more of them.Namely, the organizers of the Hoomstock festival have decided that they will no longer use classic disposable plastic cups at their festival, but reusable Hoomstock cups. In cooperation with the festival’s partner, Laško beer, multiple branded plastic glasses were made, which visitors will pay HRK 10,00 at the entrance to the festival and use throughout the festival. After the festival, visitors can return the glasses and get a refund or simply leave glasses as a souvenir and souvenir from the festival, and continue to use them in your home.An excellent example of socially responsible business, as well as the responsibility of the organizers to its positive impact on both nature and visitors. In order for the festival to be successful and last for years, in addition to the quality lineup of that organization, they must have some identity and a brand concept and philosophy. Yes and festivals are brands that attract visitors according to their values ​​and not just according to the type of music.Well done to the organizers Hoomstock Festival, support them and follow this positive example.last_img read more

first_imgA large number of apartments built as part of the Incentive Housing (POS) project in Istria are rented as apartments, he writes Glas Istre. Unfortunately, this news is nothing new, everyone knows everything and it has been going on for years, but… always the one but in Lijepa naša.Thus, the project, which was conceived as a support to citizens in solving the housing issue, as one of the basic needs of life, has largely turned into something quite the opposite – to support citizens to get extra income. Namely, POS apartments were sold at better prices than the market ones and were not intended to be rented out to tourists. But there are no legal obstacles, so that is exactly what is happening.POS apartments are used exclusively to solve the housing issue, and not to generate additional income, taking away the advantage of those for whom that apartment would be the only real estate. And that is why everyone who rents POS apartments as apartments should be fined as well as automatically charged the full market amount for the apartment, because the basic housing issue has obviously been resolved. Even to finally introduce some order and a drastic solution to confiscate the apartment, so that the apartment is given to the family that has a real need to solve the housing issue. Because this way, all those who pay taxes and all obligations to the State turn out to be fools, and some individuals exploit the system with our money.Tenants are not even embarrassed to walk around the city, they even brag about how cheap they got to the apartment, says Gabrijela Đukes Bašić, a city councilor from Umag and a tenant in the POS building where 60 percent of apartments are used for rent to tenants or tourists. Voice of Istria.A particularly interesting example is from Umag, where one of the POS apartments in 154. brigade Hrvatske vojske Street is owned by the wife of the head of the Office of the Mayor of the City of Umag, Diego Banković. The Bankovics are renting an apartment to tourists and, it seems, are particularly sensitive in protecting the comfort of their guests to such an extent that a few days ago Diego Bankovic chased away the children of tenants playing in front of the building and threatened to call the police.One of the parents found himself in front of the building and opposed Banković by claiming that this was a POS building, not an apartment complex, and that all these children were tenants who had the right to gather in front of the building in which they lived. He added, as Glas Istre writes, that the goal of POS is to solve housing issues, mostly of young people, and not to bribe with purchased apartments, rent or turn them into cheap tourist apartments. To make matters more paradoxical, it is the same Banković, as a city official, who participates in determining the conditions, criteria and procedure for the purchase of apartments from the POS program.In the whole story, the question is whether the mentioned POS apartment, ie the apartment for rent to tourists, is registered in the eVisitor system or receives tourists illegally.last_img read more
