“In terms of policies for right now, very unusual for the IMF, starting in March I would go out, and I would say: ‘please spend’. Meanwhile, economies have shrunk over the past year due to COVID-19 restrictions on travel, and business.
Apple Sued to Force it to Remove Telegram from its App Store The lawsuit claims Apple is failing to enforce its terms of service because Telegram “allows” (read: doesn’t censor) “extremist” content.
It’s bad enough that Apple removed Parler from its app store because the social media platform allows free speech. The Norwegian government issued a warning that frail, elderly people with underlying health conditions might be in danger from the COVID-19 vaccines.
So far, at least 23 elderly people have died shortly after receiving the first dose of the BioNTech /Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. “Based on these reports we cannot rule out that common adverse reactions, such as fever and nausea, may contribute to a more serious course and fatal outcome in some frail patients with severe underlying diseases,” said Sigurd Norteño, chief physician at the Norwegian Medicines Agency.

She had signed up for a summer class that has since been moved online due to the coronavirus pandemic. Students who lived on campus in dorms were offered partial refunds to be issued by UC at the end of the school year.
Most students moved out, although others with nowhere to go had an option to fill out a waiver to petition to stay on campus. But students living just blocks away from campus that signed with local landlords say they have “no chance” of getting out of their leases.
Emily Kiel, 20, says she will pay six months of rent for her off-campus house while she stays quarantined at home in Loveland. Barkley said she called her property manager as soon as classes went online; he told her while it was not his decision, some higher-ups had decided they were not doing any adjustments to contracts.
We realize this presents challenges and circumstances that they have never faced before, and are committed to working with anyone who may need assistance. This provides the resources and flexibility to help those who are in need, help pay our employees, and support the essential services required to maintain our buildings.
Peak Property Group, another large company that rents to UC students, did not respond to multiple requests from The Enquirer. He told her the tenants are still welcome to move in if they choose, but Kishinchand says she would feel much safer at home.
Schimanski says he recently terminated a lease for a client on account of the landlord had not made timely repairs. According to Ohio law, a landlord is obligated to make repairs, keep all common areas safe and sanitary and maintain all electrical, plumbing, sanitary, heating, ventilating and air conditioning fixtures and appliances, among other requirements.
As a result, if a landlord has not held up to these obligations in a way that seriously diminishes the quality of the unit being occupied (a leaking roof as compared to a faulty ice maker, for example), these are ways for tenants to get out of a contract, Schimanski said. She says she understands the landlord's point of view, but three people in her house, herself included, have lost their jobs.
Mike DeWine's) orders staying home, as well as Kentucky’s, so we’re going to try and fight it,” Barkley said. Liam has been out of school for about two weeks, but Lilia's final day of Kindergarten was yesterday.
The weather being what it's been, I'm a little afraid it will mirror winter in there's five of us trapped in a small house, but for the most part, as long as it's warm and sunny, we have a huge yard for the kids to play in. Mei loves books too! After a morning playing outside, we all went to get hot dogs from the vendor near the Perkier Library, something my husband has done since he was a child.
She loves to learn so much that I decided to continue working with her on her reading and writing. She did some worksheets, practiced writing her name and address and phone numbers, and wrote in her journal.
And I have to admit that I had a lot of fun quizzing her on those words. It's pretty awesome to watch your child display the skills she's learned.
It amazes me how well she can read at this age. Liam's blueberry topped pancake After our quiet nap and study time, we decided to go out to dinner and celebrate our first day of summer vacation more. Not the healthiest of meals, but we hit SHOP, as the kids love pancakes.
And being kids eat free night, the entire meal was less than $20 BUX. )Of course, I'm guessing by this time...next week, maybe?... I'll be ready for them to go back to school.
My initial plan was to transform the old beds into a patio area, but that's temporarily on hold until I can afford to put some money into that project. Because of time this year, I am using some old beds, but intend to do one of two things this fall: tarp them so the winterize (and hopefully kill the plants underneath) or I'm tearing them apart.
But this year we have sunflowers, peas, spinach, carrots, corn, mint and strawberries growing in the old bed. In May, I put down some black plastic down with lawn staples, and let it kill the grass.
Now, here in June, I've been removing the remaining sod, tilling and preparing the soil. It's been a lot of hard work, particularly since many times it's get as much done in an hour that I can, so I can then shower, cool down and hydrate myself before I nurse the baby.
I am thinking... about how stretched I feel between three children, a husband and my own needs. I am wondering... when the sun will return and if I'll get the rest of my gardening done this weekend.
Around the house... is scattered toys, laundry the needs to be done, and happy kids. A favorite quote for today... Love as thou wilt.
What are you doing, Mom? Playing along with The Simple Woman's Daybook Hoping to really and truly get back into blogging a little ! As I try to get back into the swing of things, I figured I would share Ma's birth story.
I think it's important that we as women share our positive birth stories. The hospital frightens me, and takes away control, forcing unnecessary interventions on me and the baby, at least in my experience, and that's something I don't handle well.
I picked a great midwife, someone who made me feel very comfortable, and someone with experience. I really thought I'd go into labor before Christmas, despite my 29th of December due date.
But then I got sick with a seriously bad cough, and any signs of impending labor literally flew out the door. December 26 we had a big snow storm, and I spend a few hours of intense braxton-hicks.
Sleep was rather restless though, and it was about 4:30 when I felt what I can only describe as “bubbles” bursting. I decided to wait 10-15 minutes to see if contractions started, and then went to the bathroom again, this time turning on the lights.
There was a touch of meconium in the fluids, so I knew for sure my waters had indeed broken. She had actually just finished catching another baby! I had minor contractions, but nothing big.
It was actually pretty weird, considering both Lilia and Liam were very much *pop* and active labor within 10-20 minutes. I tried to sleep, but couldn't- between the adrenaline and my cough, I felt like I was in a not so cozy frame of mind and body... I think I finally fell asleep for about a half hour at 11, and then again at 12.
At some point, John and I watched The Avengers on his computer while we tried some nipple stimulation to see if that couldn't get contractions started. I started crying, I think both from the pain and shock, but it was shortly after that contractions began.
It was SO warm, and it initially felt good, but man...the contractions were plain awful. None of my previous hypnobirth training seemed to help, although I will admit to not preparing as well as I did with Liam.
Ma, covered in Vern ix, shortly after birth Kelly checked me at one point and my cervix was slightly swollen, probably from coughing so much. She offered to let me relax or to manually push the cervix lip over the baby's head.
I chose the latter, not able to mentally handle the idea of postponing and dealing with more contractions. It took 2-3 contractions of her holding the cervix open while I pushed, and sure enough we got the head through.
After a few pushes to get the shoulders out, Kelly checked again, concerned we weren't making progress. She had me try one more BIG push (no noise, just everything I had) and when that didn't work, the next thing I knew, Kelly and the rest of the midwives lifted me from the water (John helping too), and then put me in a bunch of positions and adjusted the baby.
Once on hands and knees, once on my back, and literally Kelly pulled the baby out of me while I pushed with everything I had. She was placed immediately on my chest, and I was pretty much in shock, until Ma cried out, and I was like “OH.
I was given a shot of piton, just because my iron levels weren't that great, and we didn't get a final test to see if it had gone up. Getting checked out! After she was done, I showered, and then Kelly examined the baby, weighing her and all that good stuff.
She had 10 fingers, 10 toes, peed during the exam, and she had pooped almost immediately upon coming out, so everything was perfect. And that's how Ma Elanor, born December 28, 2013, was brought into the world. Outside my window... are clouds, wind and lake effect snow, which seems to go from very light to very heavy.
I am thankful... for a husband who really steps up to take care of the baby, particularly at night. I am reading... lots of websites on colic, fussiness, gas and spit up.
They are warmth in the arms of its mother, food from her breasts, and security in the knowledge of her presence. A few plans for the rest of the week: Sleep, nurse, buy and play the newest Fire Emblem, work on digital scrapbook pages, and basically attempt to survive having a young, fussy baby.
Every day, Lilia reminds me that the baby is getting bigger in my belly. I expect December is going to feel pretty much like the entire summer...slow and never ending.
Part two of my changing table project was actually transforming an old shelf unit into a small matching wardrobe. Then Lilia was born, and began to crawl and then walk, and all our DVD's got strewn onto the floor on a regular basis.
As I began to gather baby stuff, I stored it in my dining room closet. Liam's room has no closets, just a wardrobe and a set of drawers.
A small wardrobe, perfect for holding the baby's clothes. I started with a coat of paint. I bought an 18-30 inch adjustable clothing rod, and installed that.
There's a basket on the bottom for baby blankets, swaddles and changing table covers. Because the top shelf was so thin, I used old silverware baskets from my kitchen drawers.
So far, I placed all her newborn clothes, except onesies in there, as well as 0-3 month outfits, dresses. And once we've had either an addition made, or we move to a bigger house, she can still use it for play clothes and toy storage.
I have a little mental image of attaching a mirror on the other side, and hanging up her (and Lilia and Liam's) dress-up clothes. Except for the baskets and the clothing rod, everything was an extension of the original changing table project.
