New coronavirus wave hits most of USA


DW News shows that the United States of America has had the most confirmed virus cases and deaths in the world. No other country in the world has been hit harder by the coronavirus. Despite its unprecedented vaccination program, infection numbers are still rising. Many people are tired of the lockdowns. With warming weather, many states have lifted restrictions. Facing the threat of a 4th wave – President Joe Biden’s administration is doubling down on vaccination, as the key to ending the pandemic. However, local outbreaks threaten to undo the important strategy.

Brazil hits grim new Covid-19 death record


BBC News shows that Brazil has recorded more than 4,000 Covid-related deaths in 24 hours for the first time, as a more contagious variant fuels a surge in cases.
Hospitals are overcrowded, with people dying as they wait for treatment in some cities, and the health system is on the brink of collapse in many areas.
The total death toll of Brazil is now almost 337,000, second only to the USA.
But President Jair Bolsonaro continues to oppose any lockdown measures to curb the outbreak.
He argues that the damage to the economy would be worse than the effects of the virus itself, and has tried to reverse some of the restrictions imposed by local authorities in the courts.
Brazil is the largest country in both South America and Latin America. At 8.5 million square kilometers and with over 211 million people, Brazil is the world’s 5th-largest country by area and the sixth most populous. Its capital is Brasília, and its most populous city is São Paulo. The federation is composed of the union of the 26 states and the Federal District. It is the largest country to have Portuguese as an official language and the only one in the Americas; it is also one of the most multicultural and ethnically diverse nations, due to over a century of mass immigration from around the world; as well as the most populous Roman Catholic-majority country.
The COVID-19 pandemic in Brazil is part of the ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The virus was confirmed to have spread to Brazil on 25 February 2020, when a man from São Paulo tested positive for the virus. The disease had spread to every federative unit of Brazil by 21 March. On 19 June 2020, the country reported its 1 millionth case; at this time, there had been nearly 49,000 reported deaths. As of 25 March 2021, Brazil, with more than 12 million confirmed cases and over 300,000 deaths, has the second-highest number of confirmed cases and deaths from COVID-19 in the world, behind only the United States.
The dangerous pandemic has triggered a variety of responses from federal, state and local governments, having an impact on politics, education, the environment, and the economy. On 27 March 2020 Brazil announced a temporary ban on foreign air travelers and most state governors have imposed quarantines to prevent the spread of the deadly virus.

Canada must not ‘under-invest’ in pandemic recovery, says Duclos


Investing into pandemic recovery is important. Canada must create a greater economy that benefits Canadians.
The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the virus which causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and is responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic. The first human cases of COVID-19 were identified in Wuhan, the capital of the province of Hubei in China in December 2019. The most recent country or territory to report its first confirmed case was the Federated States of Micronesia on 8 January 2021.
The dangerous Coronavirus Covid-19 virus certainly exists in the world and North America. The first cases in North America were reported in the United States in January 2020. Cases were reported in all North American countries after Saint Kitts and Nevis confirmed a case on 25 March, and in all North American territories after Bonaire confirmed a case on 16 April.
On 26 March 2020, USA became the country with the highest number of confirmed COVID-19 infections, with over 82,000 cases. On 11 April 2020, USA became the country with the highest official death toll for COVID-19, with over 20,000 deaths. As of 21 November 2020 the total cases of COVID-19 are over 13,942,964 with over 383,084 total deaths.
As of 18 February 2021, Canada has reported 834,182 cases and 21,435 deaths, while Mexico has reported 2,013,563 cases and 177,061 deaths. The most cases by state is California with 3,492,045 cases and 47,916 deaths as of 18 February 2021.

This is pretty funny animals, indeed: Funniest Animals – Attacking People Reaction – Animals Attack People Compilation.
Some attacks do not result in serious injuries. Keep in mind, some animal attacks have been identified as a major public health problem. In 1997, it was estimated that up to 2 million animal bites occur each year in the USA. Injuries caused by animal attacks result in thousands of fatalities worldwide every year.

COVID-19: Canada expected to receive 6M doses of vaccine by mid-April


Global News shows that vaccine shipments are ramping up, with Canada expected to receive millions more doses in the next 3 weeks. 
Procurement minister Anita Anand said Friday that Canada would receive 6 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine by April 18, which she said would be equal to the number of doses received over the past 3 months.
Included in those six million doses, she said, would be the 1.5 million doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine from the USA. Those are expected to arrive on Tuesday.
How long will a vaccine protect people? It is too soon to know exactly how long a vaccine will last. It is currently being researched. Of the people who have received the vaccine, we know that they have been protected from COVID-19 for at least 4 months.

Iran bans import of UK and US Covid-19 vaccines, saying they’re ‘completely untrustworthy’


Iran: Covid-19 Coronavirus death toll is 61,230
Iran bans import of UK and US Covid-19 vaccines, saying they’re ‘completely untrustworthy’
FRANCE 24 English shows that foreign companies will not be allowed to test Covid-19 vaccines on the Iranian people, President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday, one day after the country’s supreme leader banned the import of UK- and US-produced jabs and said they were “completely untrustworthy.”
Iran recently received the first consignment of the Chinese COVID-19 vaccine Sinopharm.
The cargo of 250,000 doses of the vaccine, donated by China, was handed over to the Health Ministry, officials said.
Iran seems to be on the verge of a 4th wave of the pandemic with a spike in new cases in recent weeks in some provinces.
Earlier in February, Iran had imported the Sputnik-V vaccine from Russia, which was administered to healthcare workers and other high-risk groups in the first phase of the rollout.
Iran also has plans to import some 17 million doses of vaccine from the WHO’s COVAX channel beside countries like India and South Korea, in addition to co-producing a vaccine with Cuba.
Iran is also preparing to produce a homegrown vaccine. Two vaccines manufactured by domestic knowledge-based firms have already passed the human trial phase, expected to be ready by summer.
The COVID-19 pandemic in Iran is part of the global worldwide pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). On 19 February 2020, Iran reported its first confirmed cases of infections in Qom. The virus may have been brought to the country by a merchant from Qom who had travelled to China.
In response to the Covid-19 coronavirus the government cancelled public events and Friday prayers; closed schools, universities, shopping centers, bazaars, and holy shrines; and banned festival celebrations.
Economic measures were also announced to help families and businesses.
The Iranian economy entered a third consecutive year of recession following the triple-shock of sanctions, oil market collapse and COVID-19. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) contracted by 6.8 percent in the Iranian calendar year 2019/2020 as a result of expiration of US sanctions waivers on Iran’s oil exports.
Iran Standard Time (IRST) or Iran Time (IT) is the time zone used in Iran. Iran uses a UTC offset UTC+03:30. IRST is defined by the 52.5 degrees east meridian, the same meridian which defines the Iranian calendar and is the official meridian of Iran.
Between 2005 and 2008, by decree of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran did not observe daylight saving time (called Iran Daylight Time or IRDT). It was reintroduced from 21 March 2008.
The modern flag of Iran is a tri-colored green, white, red. Green represents several factors of the country. It symbolizes the Persian culture, its language, nature, growth, and vitality. White represents freedom and peace. Red symbolizes the blood of the martyr, vitality, and sophistication.
Iran 2020 population is estimated at 83,992,949 people at mid year according to UN data. Iran population is equivalent to 1.08% of the total world population.
Does Iran really have nuclear weapons? Iran maintains that it has never sought nuclear weapons and never would. It says its nuclear work only has civilian aims. Tehran began breaching the deal’s curbs last year in a step-by-step response to President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the deal in May 2018 and the reimposition of USA sanctions.
The following information is according to the COVID-19 Dashboard by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University.

USA: 500,000+ COVID-19 deaths: Where did the USA fail?


DW News talks about the Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic situation. The number of coronavirus deaths in the United States surpassed 500,000 on Monday, according to data from the Johns Hopkins University. USA has about 20% of the nearly 2.5 million global deaths from coronavirus.
New daily cases of the Covid-19 Coronavirus seem to be decreasing in the USA. Declining cases are partly because of the useful vaccines that worked.
It seems that one year after the pandemic was declared, 1 in 10 Americans have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
However, despite the dip in deaths and cases, and mass-vaccination, a model from the University of Washington predicts 90,000 more COVID-related deaths in the USA by June.
The following information is according to the COVID-19 Dashboard by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University.

Al2 El Aldeano – Dame Micro Lyrics

[Coro]
Nos enseñan a adorar y admirar conductas de otros
Pero nunca nos mostraron cómo amarnos a nosotros
Quiere a Dios y créete todo lo que digan en la escuela
Y tú, no eres tú, tú eres otro frijol en su cazuela

Y es que, nos dividieron a todos con fronteras
Y clase sociales, maldita política de mierda
Pregúntate quién soy yo, a ver si con tanto trabajo en la mente
Tu corazón lo recuerda

Y eh, que no es fácil llegar hasta el fin del cuento
Y darte cuenta que quisieras comenzar de nuevo
En un mundo nuevo con tu propio juego
Nunca es tarde si sales a luchar tu dicha
Tienes que mover tu ficha y ser mas que fuerte
Para enfrentarte a lo que el tiempo tenga guardado para ti
Dice así

Somos mas que un número, mas que una raza
Mas que empleados, somos mas que las masas
Somos quienes sienten los ciclones cuando pasan
La herida que se desangra en la espera de tu gasa

[Verso 1]
Somos el presente de un pasado sin futuro
Quienes luchan día a día pa’ su cría un techo seguro
La esperanza tras un muro rezando y pidiendo duro
Libertad para su luz porque está presa en lo oscuro

Somos lo que nos dijeron que debíamos ser
No lo que queríamos ser
Por eso, hoy todo lo que vemos lo queremos tener
Aunque se echa a perder

Mierda algo hay que hacer
Qué locura es esta hermano aléjate del peligro
Si quieres crecer bota tu arma y dale a tu alma a leer un libro
Llénate de amor, deja atrás ese episodio
Donde sólo funcionabas motivado por el odio

Cumplo con mi conciencia, tengo fe, claro que sí
Quizás pueda ir a una iglesia, pero Dios está dentro de mí
Soy lo que aprendí con el paso de la vida y
Me considero tal cual me encuentro parado aquí

[Coro]
Nos enseñan a adorar y admirar conductas de otros
Pero nunca nos mostraron cómo amarnos a nosotros
Quiere a Dios y créete todo lo que digan en la escuela
Y tú, no eres tú, tú eres otro frijol en su cazuela

Y es que, nos dividieron a todos con fronteras
Y clase sociales, maldita política de mierda
Pregúntate quién soy yo, a ver si con tanto trabajo en la mente
Tu corazón lo recuerda

[Verso 2]

Y eh, que no es fácil llegar hasta el fin del cuento
Y darte cuenta que quisieras comenzar de nuevo
En un mundo nuevo con tu propio juego
Nunca es tarde si sales a luchar tu dicha
Tienes que mover tu ficha y ser mas que fuerte
Para enfrentarte a lo que el tiempo tenga guardado para ti
Dice así…..

Y nos han encerrado en la parte fea de su mundo bello
Y nos han hecho creer que somos – que ellos
Pero si tienes sentimientos llegas a la conclusión
Que tu miseria en las manos es la de otro en su corazón

El hombre moderno no quiere usar la moral
Y para sentirse bien tiene que ver a otro mal
Los líderes políticos engañan nuestras mentes
No quieren seres humanos sino máquinas eficientes

Y desde muy temprana edad nos vuelven marionetas
De una fuerza ciega a la cual llaman sociedad
Nos dicen trabaja, cobra, paga, haz tus deberes
Nunca tendrás tiempo para hacer lo que realmente quieres

Somos quienes construimos, quienes emigramos
Somos quienes no escogimos pero el lomo doblamos
Bomba sobre bomba, el bien llora sin piedad
Muy poco se usa en beneficio de la humanidad

Es una guerra global, se secan los manantiales
La naturaleza es procesada y hecha materiales
Para construir prisiones, bancos, calles, hospitales
El mundo es nuestra raíz y la vida es lo que vale

[Coro]
Nos enseñan a adorar y admirar conductas de otros
Pero nunca nos mostraron cómo amarnos a nosotros
Quiere a Dios y créete todo lo que digan en la escuela
Y tú, no eres tú, tú eres otro frijol en su cazuela

Y es que, nos dividieron a todos con fronteras
Y clase sociales, maldita política de mierda
Pregúntate quién soy yo, a ver si con tanto trabajo en la mente
Tu corazón lo recuerda

[Outro]
Y eh, que no es fácil llegar hasta el fin del cuento
Y darte cuenta que quisieras comenzar de nuevo
En un mundo nuevo con tu propio juego
Nunca es tarde si sales a luchar tu dicha
Tienes que mover tu ficha y ser + que fuerte
Para enfrentarte a lo que el tiempo tenga guardado para ti
Dice así…

Al2 El Aldeano – El Himno Del Autista Del Realismo Lyrics

[Coro]
Porque ya nada es lo mismo
El mundo es un infierno triste
Como la imagen de Cristo flotando en un abismo
Este es el himno del Autista del Realismo

Ya nada es lo mismo no
El mundo es un infierno triste
Como la imagen de Cristo flotando en un abismo
Este es el Himno del Autista del Realismo

[Verso 1]
Usted sería tan amable de prestarme atención
Quiero decirle algo que me dijo el corazón
Tanto la vieja como la nueva generación
Ha confundido la palabra dinero con diversión

Pasa al próximo renglón
Sin opción no es necesario
Hablar sin rodeos
De todo lo que veo a diario

Pues cuándo se ha visto
Que una mujer que tenga un hijo enfermo
Esté bailando techno en una Disco

Ya no resisto a la gente con orgullo
La apariencia MADE IN cualquier país menos el suyo
Si es todo un mito la armonía
Usa tu imaginación ven, te regalo un rincón en mi poesía

Se va otro día y seguimos en espera de un tal Dios
Y de un futuro mejor que nunca llega
Mientras la ira que se respira y que nos ciega
Es tan extensa como el eco de un grito en una cueva

Eva trabaja para Adán
Y llega al Edén con lo que le dan
Él vive y viste bien como todo un empresario
Gracias a ella, o hablando en plata a sus ovarios

Oh melancolía dueña de mi aliento
Permíteme ser libre como el viento
Que los momentos felices pasen lentos
Y que tu presencia no esté todo el tiempo

Y quién dijo que todo está perdido
Yo vengo a entregarte una canción
Dónde la esperanza entre palabras danza
Y alcanza su máxima expresión

[Coro]
Porque ya nada es lo mismo
El mundo es un infierno triste
Como la imagen de Cristo flotando en un abismo
Este es el himno del Autista del Realismo

Ya nada es lo mismo no
El mundo es un infierno triste
Como la imagen de Cristo flotando en un abismo
Este es el Himno del Autista del Realismo

[Verso 2]
Muchos colocan su sueños en nubes
Y quedan siempre con la esperanza de que algún ángel los encuentre
Así es la mente de inocente y con el tiempo
Cuenta se dan de que no regresarán cumplidos con el viento

Qué te tocó, un camino sin alfombras
Con una luz tan tenue que parece una sombra
Algún día verás con brillo todo lo que fue nada
Porque la felicidad aún no es propiedad privada

Entre la espada y la pared si el cemento se resuelve
Puedes estar si pero no bajes la frente
Que aquí cualquiera ha cometido errores torpes
El hecho de creerse un ser perfecto es un defecto enorme

Qué pasa brother, todos tenemos problemas
Pero hay que enfrentar la vida alante sigue, no le temas
Que no hay nada más digno que un hombre de pie
Diciendo: yo me caigo , pero me paro después

Había una vez un rey que se quedó sin castillo
Y un mendigo le dio abrigo, vino pan y cama
El rey le quiso pagar con un anillo
Y el mendigo dijo: págame con una buena acción mañana

Hay quien comparte hasta su pobreza
Lo material no le interesa y eso sí es tener riqueza
Piénsatelo no te cuesta nada
Y nos vemos en el tema que viene que mi himno aquí se acaba

Upchurch – Red White And Blue Jeans Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Well I’m from down in the hollow, where the creek turns brown
Apple pie shine looks the same
Where the kids run loose, got the chickens and the coop
And the dog ain’t got no chain
You can call me white trash, you can say what you want
But buddy at the end of the day
I’m a true blue-collar, sweatin’ bullets for the dollar
Proud to live in the USA

[Chorus]
Well A M E R I C A
I love guns, God, girls, and the NRA
I say what I want at any given time
Ain’t afraid to pop a round right out of my nine
The roads are dirt and the hills are rollin’ green
In the land of the red, white and blue jeans
Red, white and blue jeans

[Verse 2]
Well I was out in the woods at about age six
Poppin’ pennies out of trees with a Remington
Daddy taught me hard work, mama taught me class
And grandpa taught me how to kick someone’s ass
I grew up on Tombstone, and Lonesome Dove
John Wayne, Wyatt Earp, and Dale Earnhardt
I was raised to respect and protect my kin
No matter right or wrong or what they did

[Chorus]
Well A M E R I C A
I love guns, God, girls, and the NRA

I say what I want at any given time
Ain’t afraid to pop a round right out of my nine
The roads are dirt and the hills are rollin’ green
In the land of the red, white and blue jeans
Red, white and blue jeans

[Verse 3]
I might smoke a little grass, but that’s okay
No worse than what I’m seein’ on the news today
Hate groups puttin’ their towns in flames
And the president wants to take our guns away
Everybody wanna lie just to save their ass
Don’t write a fat check that you can’t go cash
‘Cause I’m God-fearin’ barefoot, muddy water bloodline
Yellin’ USA at every single damn show of mine

[Chorus]
A M E R I C A
I love guns, God, girls, and the NRA
I say what I want at any given time
Ain’t afraid to pop a round right out of my nine
The roads are dirt and the hills are rollin’ green
In the land of the red, white and blue jeans
Red, white and blue jeans

[Outro]
We’re loud, we’re proud
Stand up for what’s right, so bubba watch your mouth
Got fire in a jar, John Deere green
In the land of red, white and blue jeans, aww yeah
Red, white and blue jeans

Pop Xir – Infected19 Lyrics

Today, my sunny days become darkness
I suffer from pain, cough (Oh, Oh)
And coldness
I-I-I can’t breathe hardly
Symptoms of viral infections workin’ on my body
Down with nothin’ to remember,
I’m desperately
I-I-I thought I was the one who was being infected
Included the lock down city
People panic of these damn NCOV19 diseases
That strike me so deadly
Everywhere I go, I heard a news
On the Internet, Radio and TV
It was the main of China
Followed by South Korea, Philippine to Italy
Shutting down the Hollywood in the USA
Millions of people who are being stranded
Thousands of children who are
On the process of recovery
Hundreds of cancelled works, I ain’t no money
Lord, Heal our land from hunger and scary

Chorus:
Oh God, Lay your hands on me
We are infected
Hear my cry as I pray
We are infected
We war for the enemy
We are infected
Now I’m strong,
‘cuz you’re with me
We are infected

Now I’m alone, hiding in my room
Sick, tired, I’m killed by my own boredome
Looking outside, walking by my side
So terrifying place I see
Like a ghost town
Our government thinkin’ what to do
Planned to solve these virus,
How to shoot it down
Police officer staying in the alley
We are trap at home like a cat and doggy

No more COVID transmission
If we stay at home for a mission

India: world’s largest coronavirus Covid-19 lockdown continues

India certainly has created the world’s largest coronavirus Covid-19 lockdown. It is 1.3 billion people and a 21-day lockdown. India is trying to reduce the spread of the coronavirus Covid-19.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the world’s largest lockdown on March 24th, 2020. Amazingly, 1.3 billion Indians were asked to stay home for 21 days to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Apocalypse (ἀποκάλυψις) is a Greek word meaning “revelation”, “an unveiling or unfolding of things not previously known”. Some believe that the apocalypse is the complete final destruction of the world, as described in the biblical book of Revelation. It would be an event involving destruction or damage on a catastrophic scale. Of course, everyone wants to stop the destruction of the world.

The apocalyptic projections are worrisome. It seems that less than 600 cases had been confirmed at the time of Modi’s announcement. However, many believe the number is underestimated. Without strict control measures, 300 million to 500 million Indians could be infected by the end of July and 30 million to 50 million could have severe disease, according to some models.

The first coronavirus death in a slum was unfortunately confirmed recently. Indian doctors warn that the country must prepare to face the increase of cases. The Indian health system could suffer with levels far beyond what Europe and USA are experiencing.

A 56-year-old man died due to Covid-19-related illness in Dharavi slum, in the Indian financial capital of Mumbai on Wednesday.

Home to around 1 million people, Dharavi slum has a population density almost 30 times greater than New York — about 280,000 people per square kilometer.

Unfortunately for India’s slum dwellers, “social distancing” will be nearly impossible.

India reported more than 230 new cases on Friday. This brings the national total to 2,547 and 62 deaths.

Coronavirus Covid-19: New York rate of infection is accelerating

Hospitals in New York City seem to be nearing capacity due to an influx of coronavirus patients, former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said.

COVID-19 has already killed 192 people in New York City, according to Johns Hopkins University.

The virus has infected more than 15,500 people in New York City, which accounts for more than 25% of all cases in the USA, according to Johns Hopkins.

New York City will begin closing streets to traffic and ban close contact sports in city parks to help combat the spread of the novel coronavirus, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday.

There are currently 58,000 coronavirus cases in the USA, with New York amounting for about half of those.

Dow Jones has worst week since 2008


The Dow Jones decreased more than 900 points. It is ending the worst week since 2008. The Dow fell 913.21 points, or 4.5%, to 19,173.98. The S&P 500 fell 4.3% after being up 1.8% earlier.
The coronavirus Covid-19 has caused much problems. Stocks fell sharply and the price of oil sank Friday as federal and state governments moved to shut down bigger areas of the nation’s economy. The hope is to limit the spread of the virus outbreak.
Unfortunately, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell more than 900 points, ending the week with a 17.3% loss. The index has declined in 4 of the last 5 weeks. Many people are selling off stocks because of their fears of the future. Investors fear the chance that the coronavirus Covid-19 will create a deep recession for USA and other economies.
The efforts to contain the spread of the virus outbreaks are resulting in non-essential workers staying home. The problems created are business disruptions, layoffs and people quitting their jobs. Hopefully, emergency actions taken by central banks and governments will help to ease the economic damage. Soon, new created legislation could send billions more of dollars into hurting households and industries. The coronavirus Covid-19 is shutting down much of the economy.
At the current time, oil prices are decreasing. This is because of increased supplies when demand is declining.
More than 10,000 people have died because of the coronavirus Covid-19. There are now more than 246,000 cases worldwide. Almost 85,000 have recovered from this virus.
Apple stock (NASDAQ: AAPL) had a great growth in 2019. Now, in 2020 the Apple stock keeps sinking lower. Facebook (NASDAQ: FB) has also fallen a lot in 2020. Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN) is performing comparatively better in 2020.

Stock Markets after worst week since 2008, Keep Your Eyes On It

ABC News’ chief business correspondent Rebecca Jarvis reports on the latest from Wall Street after the Dow dropped more than 12% in just one week.


Dow futures rose more than 100 points late Sunday, erasing earlier losses. This is a sign that more wild swings in markets are likely this week. There are reports the coronavirus COVID-19 is spreading in the USA and globally.

Last week, the Dow Jones industrial average tumbled more than 3,500 points, or 12%. This is its worst week since the 2008 financial crisis.

The number of coronavirus COVID-19 cases surged in Italy and continued to climb in countries such as Iran, Iraq and South Korea. There have been more than 88,000 coronavirus cases worldwide, mostly in China, and almost 3,000 deaths.

Italy declares 27 more deaths and 400 new coronavirus cases in 24 hours


The impact of the virus COVID-19 was felt in Italy’s wealthiest regions of Lombardy and Veneto. This is where the financial hub of Milan and the tourism hotspot of Venice are located. Italy’s lucrative tourism industry will be hurt. There are mass hotel cancellations. Some countries, including USA, advise against travel to Italy.

The loss of income of tourism problem does not only concern those 10 municipalities in Lombardy and Veneto, but is national.

On Sunday, Italy’s Economy Minister Roberto Gualtieri announced that 3.6 billion euros (around $4 billion) would be injected into the economy to help sectors such as tourism and the logistics and transport industry, which have been badly impacted by the virus.

As of Tuesday morning, there were 2,041 confirmed cases of the coronavirus in Italy and 52 deaths.

Lombardy is the epicenter of Italy’s outbreak with 1254 cases of the virus. 38 deaths and where 10 towns remain under lockdown.

Hospitals in Lombardy are struggling to cope and have called on the private health sector to help them.

This is where the name Lombard comes from:

“Who are these long-beards?,” and Frea replied, “My lord, thou hast given them the name, now give them also the victory.” From that moment onwards, the Winnili were known as the Longbeards (Latinised as Langobardi, Italianised as Longobardi, and Anglicized as Longobards or Lombards).

Lyft Stock Continues to Decline and Struggle


In its 4th-quarter report, Lyft (NASDAQ:LYFT) fortunately came in ahead of revenue and earnings estimates. The revenue was $1.02 billion. This is a 52.4% increase from the same quarter last year when the company had revenues of $669.57 million. This means the company had a net loss of $356 million, certainly above the $248.9 million loss for the same quarter last year. Lyft amazingly increased total active riders to 22.9 million, up from last year’s 17.9 million.
However, Lyft stock is not increasing much. There are reasons for this.
Uber is larger than Lyft. Uber reported revenue of $4.069 billion. Uber reported a loss of $0.64 per share, or $1.096 billion. Uber is better in terms of its “net loss margin” with losses at 26.9% of revenue. Lyft’s losses for the quarter are 34.9% of revenues.
Amazingly, in the previous quarter, Uber had about 4 times as much revenue as Lyft. Uber is larger size. Uber offers ridesharing services outside of USA and Canada. Lyft focuses on rideshare in North America. Uber wants to expand to more markets.
There is a bad thing for Lyft. Its operating expenses continue to exceed revenues by a wide margin. For fiscal 2019, Lyft had just under $3.616 billion in revenue. The operating expenses of $6.318 billion are quite a lot. Lyft could continue to struggle to profit when self-driving cars become more popular.
Autonomous vehicles could create more competition in the future. GM (NYSE:GM), Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) (NASDAQ:GOOG), and others plan on entering this business. Lyft could try to significantly reduce the number of drivers it uses. However, this does not guarantee a profit. There are also city regulations to think about.


Lyft and Uber are the most popular ridesharing companies. Average trip costs for both Uber and Lyft are roughly similar. Lyft operates in 644 cities in the USA and Puerto Rico and 9 cities in Canada. It develops, markets, and operates the Lyft mobile app, offering car rides, scooters, a bicycle-sharing system, and a food delivery services.
Lyft stock price has had a lot of turmoil after its IPO. Lyft (NASDAQ:LYFT) had struggles. It was priced at $72 for its April 2019 IPO. Following this, the shares temporarily went up above $75 before falling lower to $50. The stock went back to $68 at some point. Now, it is at about $37.
Lyft as a company is focused on consumer transportation. It is focused on North America. It is focused on serving drivers and passengers. Lyft is in less countries than Uber.
Uber is in over 60 countries. Although, Uber didn’t actually make it in to all of the USA states. At some point, Uber tried China and backed out of China.
Probably Uber will not acquire Lyft. That is an unlikely possibility.
Lyft and Uber companies have had some safety issues. Newspaper articles exist about assaults on passengers. Customers are warned to exercise caution when using ridesharing companies.
Autonomous cars could become popular in the future. Companies like Uber and Lyft could profit a lot from this. If you believe in that, you might get Lyft as an investment.
Lyft, Inc. is a ridesharing company based in San Francisco, California. It operates in 644 cities in the USA and 12 cities in Canada. It develops, markets, and operates the Lyft mobile app, offering car rides, scooters and a bicycle-sharing system. It also has food delivery services.
The Headquarters are in San Francisco, California, United States. It was founded in June 2012. The CEO is Logan Green (From Jun. 2012). The revenue was 2.157 billion USD (2018). The founders of Lyft are Logan Green and John Zimmer. The company website is lyft.com
The biggest owners of Lyft are:
Rakuten (11%)General Motors (6.6%)Fidelity Investments (6.5%)Andreessen Horowitz (5.3)CapitalG (4.4%)

Germany’s role in NATO and the world

Interesting DW segment explains Germany’s role in NATO and the world. This DW Documentary shows that the world has become more insecure and a new arms race seems to be coming. Disarmament treaties are lapsing. It seems that existing alliances are crumbling. Germany is preparing for future situations. It’s highly likely that the Bundeswehr will invest more and more into defense. Global challenges are out there.

This video mentions that the USA accuses the Germans of recklessly jeopardizing the alliance’s future. At 3 successive summits since 2014, the German government promised to bring its defense spending closer into line with the 2 percent of gross domestic product laid down in the NATO Treaty. However, it now expects it to be around 1.35 percent of GDP in 2019. If Germany refuses to honor its pledge, this will have long-term consequences for NATO capabilities and solidarity. Some think that it is not impossible for the USA under Donald Trump to even leave NATO.

Germany is a rich Country in Europe. Germany is a Western European country with a beautiful landscape of forests, rivers, mountain ranges and North Sea beaches. Berlin is the capital of Germany. The population of Germany is 82.79 million (2018) (Eurostat). The Currency is the Euro.

The economy of Germany is a highly developed social market economy. Germany is the largest national economy in Europe. Germany is the 4th-largest by nominal GDP in the world. Germany is also a founding member of the European Union and the Eurozone. The top 10 exports of Germany are vehicles, machinery, chemical goods, electronic products, electrical equipment, pharmaceuticals, transport equipment, basic metals, food products, and rubber and plastics.

Recently, the coronavirus has slowed down Europe’s economy. Recently, over 100 people were released from virus quarantine in Germany. These German nationals were on Sunday released from quarantine at a military base near Frankfurt airport. This is two weeks after flying in from the Chinese city of Wuhan, epicentre of the deadly unfortunate coronavirus outbreak.

Should People Invest Now or Wait for a Stock Market Crash

Learn to Invest has an interesting video for you: Should We Invest Now or Wait for a Stock Market Crash? Leading economic indicators are certainly analyzed to see where the US economy stands today. Think about where the USA economy is headed. Think about whether you should invest today or wait for the stock market to crash. Analysts are trying to predict when the big market crash will happen. Think about consumer confidence, CEO Confidence, manufacturing data, interest rates, and more to try to determine if the stock market is going to crash soon.

Lately, it seems that the stock markets have retreated somewhat as investors keep an eye on the coronavirus situation. The novel coronavirus threat is an important issue for markets. In USA, stocks were retreating in Friday afternoon trade after bouncing between small gains and losses earlier, as investors dealt with uncertainty over the dangerous spread of often-fatal COVID-19 in China.

February 14, 2020:

Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.32% was down 75 points, or 0.3%, at about 29,348.

S&P 500 SPX, -0.09%  edged 0.1%, about 3 points, lower at 3,371.

Nasdaq Composite COMP, -0.05% slipped 6 points to trade near 9,706, about a 0.1% decrease.

It seems right now that the USA stock market is actually at near record levels. However, some investors still hesitate to invest more of their money. The S&P 500 (SPX) closed at another all-time high on Wednesday. This index actually has successfully climbed more than 4.5% this year. The Dow (INDU) is almost at 30,000 points.

However, market volatility is certainly a problem. The problems of China, geopolitical risks and political uncertainty are creating cautious investors. The global coronavirus outbreak has added much to investor skepticism. The total economic measurements from the disease still have to be determined. This disease could decrease China’s GDP growth rate in 2020 by a even a few percentage points.

New Trolls – America Ok Lyrics

In aereo sopra New York city cantando Singing in the rain
Ma che colore hanno i miti vivi con gusto se li hai
America OK
Arance della California ne mangi una su una Buick
Son sogni fatti per l’insonnia i sogni in Tecnicolor Fruit
America OK
Oh yeah America OK

Io studio solo all’Actor’s Studio per questo qui non studio mai
Ascolto solamente radio con voce American DJ
Invidio i negri che son nati in Luisiana a stelle e a strisce vestirei
Sono nato per errore fuori dai confini tuoi

Dove sei USA
Dove sei USA
Dove sei

Scivolando sopra un’onda gigantesca con il surf
Nello spazio in una sonda sopra il ghiaccio col windsurf
America OK Oh yeah
Ascolto solo dischi funky e qualche inglese che fa il rock
Le voci blues dei negri bianchi io vivo dentro un mondo rock
.

Ten Typ Mes – Z Tym, Co W Sobie Mam Lyrics

[Intro]
Stereotypy, kopnijcie akompaniament
Hej, witamy na dorocznym festiwalu dobrej energii
Ha, ha, też ją mam!

[Zwrotka 1]
Zawiódł, mnie kumpel, powiedział mi że jestem tym
Co złamał zasady i dla niego odpadł z gry
Nie ma zgody między nami co do sprawy tej
Nie chce mi się o tym myśleć, czy aby nie
Przyjdzie dzisiaj list od zioma zza krat
f**k, same rachunki w jeden dzień za prąd i gaz
SMS przychodzi , może dobra wieść
„Spóźnia mi się okres” – a gdzie „Piotrek cześć”?
Paranoja, bo ledwo niewiastę znam
Żaden ze mnie zuch, choć mam zastęp dam
Brzuch zaczyna boleć jak dekadę temu
Zdanie do następnej klasy było największym z problemów
Przyklejam uśmiech, jakbym był z USA
W taki dzień, co się od początku psuje sam
Wynajduję drobne, choć nie lubię brzęczeć
Zamienię je na Desperados i jakoś to będzie

[Ref.]
Z tym, co w sobie mam, nie przydarzy się
Nic gorszego, niż to co znam
Nic gorszego, niż to co ty (to, co wiem)
Z tym, co w sobie mam
Gorycz, żar i gniew
Zdołam przekłuć na mój zwycięski dzień
Z tym, co w sobie mam
Z tym, co w sobie mam

[Zwrotka 2]
Normalnie wściekałbym się i wpadał w furię
Urządzał awantury nie lada
A dziś chcę zapomnieć o tych porażkach
Nie popsuje mi dnia żaden kasztan
I gdy przejdę obok, ty mnie nie trącaj
Nie wymagam wiele, chcę trochę słońca
Skrzyknę kolegów i chodźmy do parku
Stasiak sprzeda parę nowszych żartów
Pjus mi przypomni czym jest nieszczęście
Choć uśmiech na jego twarzy widzę częściej
Muśnie mnie wiatr, ubrudzę się trawą
Krzywo kopnę piłkę, ta wpadnie do stawu
Poczuję się jak mała cząstką przyrody
Wyfruną z głowy powody rozstań, porody
Bo z tym, co w sobie mam czeka mnie
Coś innego niż upadek, wierzę, że pora na to

[Ref.]

[Brigde]
Żaden kot nie reaguje na moje kici kici
Płyty, których słucham, skaczą jak na złość
Przechodzień dzisiaj każdy, jakby źle mi życzył
W górze ani jednej kiecki, w górze tylko zadarty nos

[Zwrotka 3]
Nie chcę fałszywych ludzi, chcę fałszywych alarmów
Dziewczyno, obyśmy spinali się na darmo
Myśl pogania myśl, każda jest czarna
Tylko dym z cygaretek siwy jak Jim Jarmush
Nagrzesz, wytarmoś, w tym się odnajdę
Bazgrzę linearną opowieść, fajnie
Ale teraz? Nie wiem do kogo modlę się o krew
Czuję bezradność, słyszę śmiech
Boję się być ojcem, wypluj słowo
Sam w pierestrojce wzrastałem bez niego
Czym mam kontynuować ten cykl od nowa?
Boży dar? Boski był tylko Diego

[Ref.]

[Outro x4]
Please send me a message that it was a false alarm!

Rastamiles – Numbered Lyrics

The days numbered, num numbered, the days numbered
Your days numbered, num numbered, your days numbered
I, I know of a place, where the sun don’t shine and the moon it never wanes
We’ve got to get away, the days numbered in this place
The days numbered, num numbered, the days numbered
Your days numbered, num numbered, your days numbered
I, I know of these men, with the devil inside, and the triple six plan
It’s those congress guys, trying to rule over our lives
But there making days numbered, num numbered, the days numbered, in the USA
The days numbered, num numbered, the days numbered, for hipocracy
The days numbered, num numbered, your days numbered, for the presidency
The days are numbered, num numbered, the days are numbered in Babylon I see, yeah..

Alibaba Stock Price probably will continue to rise in 2020


Alibaba Stock Price can probably continue its powerful rise in 2020. Most likely, it can last a long time. It has been an interesting run for Alibaba (阿里巴巴) (NYSE:BABA). The trade negotiations between USA and China really weighed on the stock. The success of the company is impressive. Alibaba is up almost 50% over the past year. This good performance is similar to names like Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) (NASDAQ:GOOG).
Think about the risks. Consider this, the Nasdaq Composite fell about 20% from peak to trough in the 4th quarter. It bottomed about this time last year. These stocks were not going very high a year ago. BABA is actually only up about 22% over the past 24 months. It certainly seems this stock can have a good future in 2020 and 2021. Alibaba is an interesting stock to invest in. But also keep in mind, USA investors are more familiar with Google, Apple or Amazon.

Alibaba (阿里巴巴) is China’s biggest online commerce company. It is also big all over the world. It has 3 main sites – Taobao, Tmall and Alibaba.com. They have hundreds of millions of users, and host millions of merchants and businesses. Alibaba handles more internet business than any other e-commerce company.
Amazon has had a good year. It seems Alibaba has had an even better one. It is now within distance of surpassing Amazon as the world’s biggest e-commerce company by market cap. Amazon is up 30 percent this year. Alibaba’s stock has nearly doubled as both companies race to a $500 billion in value.
As of 19 December 2018, Alibaba’s market cap stood at US$352.28 billion. In January 2018, Alibaba became the 2nd Asian company to break the US$500 billion valuation mark, after its competitor Tencent.
Amazon and Alibaba each have distinct features that make them purely e-commerce companies. However, their respective business models differ greatly. Amazon is a massive retailer for both new and used goods. In a different way, Alibaba operates as a middleman between buyers and sellers.
Alibaba is certainly able to leverage on the large number of customers on the platform. It also makes use of advertisement, keyword bidding and customer’s data for profit. Alibaba’s interesting accurate credit model helps to develop a trustworthy important reputation among customers.
Just like other e-commerce platforms of Alibaba, Aliexpress makes money by charging commissions as a percentage of the transaction value of goods sold. The commission range from 5% to 8% of the transaction value. However, Aliexpress also charges a fixed $1500 + store fee to start or change the store on the platform.
Alibaba is for B2B sales. Taobao is for small business-to-consumer and consumer-to-consumer sales (similar to eBay). Tmall is for B2C sales.
Paypal can be used on Alibaba. Payments can be made using PayPal, Visa, MasterCard or bank transfer. The announcement that Alibaba is accepting PayPal as a payment method is certainly notable given the competition between the two companies, as well as with PayPal’s parent, eBay.
Altaba Inc. was formerly known as Yahoo! Inc. Altaba Inc. was a non-diversified, closed-end management investment company based in New York City. It was formed from the remains of Yahoo! Inc. after Verizon acquired Yahoo’s Internet business. Verizon completed its acquisition on June 13, 2017. Verizon put the assets under a new subsidiary named Yahoo!
Since Altaba was delisted from the Nasdaq in October, the company’s value has increased. It’s possible that since there is no quoted market for the company’s stock and brokerage client statements may show no value for Altaba. Not long ago, Altaba (ticker AABA) shares traded in an over-the-counter market at about $20.50, up from its closing price of $19.63 on Oct. 2, its last day of Nasdaq trading.
In April 2019, the Yahoo spin-out Altaba sold its entire Alibaba stake and closed down. Altaba was a Yahoo spin-out created to house Yahoo’s stake in Alibaba. The entity existed as a proxy to Alibaba.
Yahoo! is now owned by Verizon Media. The original Yahoo! Company was founded in 1994. Yahoo was one of the pioneers of the early Internet era in the 1990s.
AliExpress is an online retail service based in China that is owned by the Alibaba Group. AliExpress can certainly be compared to eBay. Sellers are independent and use the platform to offer products to buyers. AliExpress started as a business-to-business buying and selling portal.
Baidu Tieba (百度贴吧) is the largest Chinese communication platform hosted by Chinese search engine company Baidu. It is an interesting online community that strongly integrates Baidu’s search engine.









Boeing’s 737 Max production halt significantly affected the USA economy

Boeing’s 737 issues were pretty bad for the USA economy. Boeing’s 737 Max problem could cut 0.5 percentage points from USA GDP. Boeing recently decided to halt 737 Max production in January. This will cut 0.5% from GDP growth in the first quarter of 2020, analysts say. This particular model is Boeing’s bestselling plane.

The production pause is bad for Boeing’s supply chain. The company already has 400 undelivered planes in storage.

The “production” component of GDP includes investment in inventory or fixed assets.

The Boeing Company is an American multinational corporation that designs, manufactures, and sells airplanes, rotorcraft, rockets, satellites, telecommunications equipment, and missiles pretty much worldwide. Boeing also provides leasing and product support services.

The company has interesting projects all over the world. Boeing has conducted autonomous teamed flights using small, unmanned jet aircraft in Australia. The flights involved 2 small aircraft and is part of its efforts to develop its Airpower Teaming System (ATS).

In the future, they will try more complex manoeuvres, increasing teaming formation numbers and more complex missions.

There is footage on the company’s social media accounts that shows 2 aircraft taking off and performing basic manoeuvres in the air together. The aircraft look small. They are remote-controlled aircraft with fixed landing gear. Boeing says they successfully hit speeds of 152kt (300kph).
