They seem subscribed to the same number

Jokin Altuna and Jon Mariezkurrena are the provisional leaders of the Couples Championship when they got the second point yesterday at the Municipal de Bergara against Joseba Ezkurdia and Ladis Galarza, whom they defeated 11-12, curiously the same result they achieved in their debut against to Jaka and Martija on New Year’s Day at the Astelena in Eibar. They seem to have subscribed to that figure, as if it were a Lottery number.

Exit rates:

There were no runners, but the money came out 100 to 80 in favor of Altuna III and Mariezkurrena II. 60 to 100 below.


match corresponding to the second day of the quarterfinal league of the Couples Championship played at the Municipal fronton of Bergara behind closed doors.

And that is precisely what Ezkurdia and Ladis Galarza lack. Not el Gordo, but at least the stones. On this occasion they gave a better image than at Uranzu, it was not difficult, but insufficient to take control of the game and fight the opposite. Ezkurdia is forced to pull the couple’s cart and did not do so despite trying. He needs to criticize himself, regain confidence, the spark with which he won the txapela.

Altuna has plenty of that. He alone is enough to unbalance the matches. Its beginning was spectacular. Hooks, stops to the txoko. Everything that came out of his hands became so much. By 2-6 he already had five in his bag and the figure increased to seven and a serve at 5-10. Ladis, who was favored by various escapades, was unable to remove the air. Ezkurdia was a luxury guest who could only defend himself. Of course, he tried to help his partner by getting air to the rest up to thirteen times, but not for those.

With the game practically on track, the Amezketarra seemed to take a break, although he continued to use himself with the same intensity as at the beginning in defense – Ezkurdia could not find the space where he could score and had to wait for 6-11 to debut – and let him do a Mariezkurrena who started with some doubts to focus on the second half and end up enjoying as in that right hand that was 10-16. Berriozar’s defender returned to cross the ball to the wall with intention at 11-20. The fish was already sold by then. Ladis could do little more.

Urrutikoetxea-Imaz, for the same goal as Artola-Aranguren

Mikel Urrutikoetxea and Ander Imaz aspire to inaugurate this afternoon (ETB1,17.00) their record of victories. That is the same goal of his rivals, Iñaki Artola and Aitor Aranguren. Both couples were defeated in their premiere. Urrutikoetxea and Ander Imaz lost on the same stage to Peña II and Albisu (8-22). And Artola and Aranguren succumbed in Estella (22-12) to Olaizola II and Rezusta.

The festival is completed with the Promotion match between Darío, Zabala’s replacement, and Erostarbe against the provisional leaders, Salaberria and Oier Etxebarria. In the beginning, Oinatz Bengoetxea reappears.


The mayor of Amsterdam proposed to ban the sale of marijuana to foreigners :: Society :: RBC

The initiative threatens to close more than half of the cafes in the city. The rule to sell marijuana only to local residents has been in effect in the rest of the Netherlands since 2013

Amsterdam Mayor Femke Halsema has proposed banning the sale of marijuana to foreign tourists. This, as reported by, is stated in a letter from the mayor sent to the city council.

The “residence criterion” for the sale of soft drugs has been applied in the rest of the Netherlands since 2013, but Amsterdam was then granted an exceptional position. The mayor wants to “reduce the attractiveness of Amsterdam as a destination for tourists who like soft drugs.”

There are a total of 166 cafes in Amsterdam that offer marijuana. Although their number has been declining over the years, the turnover of the remaining establishments is growing, and this growth is largely due to foreign tourists who come to Amsterdam. According to a study commissioned by the municipality, only 68 cafes will be needed to serve the local market.

Halsema acknowledges that a ban on the sale of marijuana to foreign smoking tourists could initially lead to light drug trafficking on the street. She believes that the ban should be introduced with a “reasonable transition period”, but it is not yet known how long it will last.

Refusal from light drug tourism, the newspaper notes, is part of a long-term project aimed at making the center of Amsterdam livable again and get rid of the inconveniences of mass tourism. Late last year, Halsema also announced a plan to close some of the windows with prostitutes in the Red Light District and move them to an “erotic center” outside the city center.

A small number of COVID patients develop severe psychotic symptoms

Almost immediately, Dr. Hisam Goueli was able to tell that the patient who came to his psychiatric hospital on Long Island this summer was unusual.

The patient, a 42-year-old physical therapist and mother of four young children, had never had psychiatric symptoms or a family history of mental illness.

Yet there she was, sitting at a table in a beige-walled room at South Oaks Hospital in Amityville, New York, sobbing and saying that she kept seeing her children, ages 2 to 10, being horribly murdered. and that she herself had made plans to kill them.

From left to right, Drs. Jonathan Komisar, Brian Kincaid, and Colin Smith of Duke University Medical Center. Photo Jeremy M. Lange for the New York Times.

“It was like I was watching a movie, like ‘Kill Bill‘”said Goueli, a psychiatrist.

The patient described one of her sons being hit by a truck and another being beheaded.

“It’s kind of horrifying that this well-accomplished woman is here and she says, ‘I love my children, and I don’t know why I feel like I want to behead them,'” he said.

The only notable thing about her medical history was that the woman, who declined to be interviewed but allowed Goueli to describe her case, had been infected with the coronavirus in the spring.

She had only experienced mild physical symptoms from the virus, but months later she heard a voice that first told her to kill herself and then told her to kill her children.

At South Oaks, which has a psychiatric treatment program for COVID-19 patients, Goueli wasn’t sure if the coronavirus was connected to the woman’s psychological symptoms.

“Maybe this is related to COVID, maybe not,” he recalled thinking.

“But then,” he said, “we saw a second case, a third case, and a fourth case, and we said to ourselves: ‘Something is happening‘”.

In fact, doctors are reporting similar cases across the country and around the world.

A small number of COVID patients who have never experienced mental health problems are developing psychotic symptoms severe weeks after contracting the coronavirus.

In interviews and scientific articles, the doctors described: A 36-year-old nursing home employee in North Carolina who became so paranoid who believed that his three children would be kidnapped and, to save them, he tried to pass them through the window of a fast food restaurant.

A 30-year-old construction worker in New York who became so delusional that he imagined his cousin was going to murder him and, to protect himself, tried to strangle his cousin in bed.

A 55-year-old woman in Great Britain had hallucinations with monkeys and a lion and became convinced that a family member had been replaced by an imposter.

Beyond individual reports, a British study of neurological or psychiatric complications in 153 hospitalized COVID-19 patients found that 10 people had “recent onset psychosis“.

Another study identified 10 of these patients in a hospital in Spain. And in COVID-related social media groups, medical professionals discuss the possibility of seeing patients with similar symptoms in the Midwest, the Great Plains, and elsewhere.

“My guess is that anywhere you are seeing COVID is probably seeing this,” said Dr. Colin Smith of Duke University Medical Center in Durham, who helped treat the North Carolina woman.

He and other doctors said his patients were too fragile to be asked if they wanted to be interviewed for this article, but some, including the North Carolina woman, agreed to have their cases described in scientific papers.

Medical experts say they expect such extreme psychiatric dysfunction to affect only a small proportion of patients.

But the cases are considered examples of another way that the COVID-19 disease process can affect mental health and brain function.

Although the coronavirus was originally thought to cause primarily respiratory problems, there is now ample evidence of many other symptoms, including neurological, cognitive and psychological effects, which could arise even in patients who did not develop serious lung, heart or circulatory problems.

Such symptoms can be just as debilitating to a person’s ability to function and work, and it is often unclear how long they will last or how to treat them.

Experts increasingly believe that brain-related effects may be linked to the response of the brain. immune system from the body to coronavirus and possibly vascular problems or waves of inflammation caused by the disease process.

“Some neurotoxinas that are reactions to immune activation can go to the brain, across the blood-brain barrier, and can induce this damage, “said Dr. Vilma Gabbay, co-director of the Montefiore Einstein Institute for Psychiatric Research in the Bronx, New York.

Brain scans, cerebrospinal fluid analysis, and other tests found no no brain infectionsaid Gabbay, whose hospital has treated two patients with post-COVID psychosis: a 49-year-old man who heard voices and believed he was the devil and a 34-year-old woman who began carrying a knife, stripping in front of strangers and put hand sanitizer on your food.

Physically, most of these patients did not get very sick from COVID-19, according to reports.

The patients Goueli treated did not experience respiratory problems, but did have subtle neurological symptomsIt’s like tingling in the hands, vertigo, headaches, or decreased odor.

Then, two weeks to several months later, he said, “they develop this deep psychosis, which is really dangerous and terrifying for all the people around them.”

It is also striking that most of the patients have been in their 30s, 40s and 50s.

“It is very rare for this type of psychosis to develop in this age range,” Goueli said, as such symptoms more typically accompany schizophrenia in young people or dementia in older patients.

And some patients – such as the physiotherapist who was taken to the hospital – understood that something was wrong, while generally “people with psychosis do not have the feeling of having lost contact with reality.”

Some post-COVID patients who developed psychosis required weeks of hospitalization in which doctors tried different medications before finding one that would help them.

Dr. Robert Yolken, neurovirology expert at the University School of Medicine Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, he said that while people can physically recover from COVID-19, in some cases their immune systems may be unable to shut down or may remain compromised due to “delayed clearance of a small amount of virus.”

Persistent immune activation is also an important explanation for the brain fog and memory problems plaguing many COVID survivors, and Emily Severance, a Johns Hopkins schizophrenia expert, said the post-COVID cognitive and psychiatric effects could be the result of “something similar happening in the brain.”

It may depend on which region of the brain is affected by the immune response, Yolken said, adding that “some people have neurological symptoms, some have psychiatric symptoms, and many others have a combination”.

Experts do not know if the genetic makeup Or perhaps an undetected predisposition to psychiatric illness puts some people at higher risk.

Dr. Brian Kincaid, medical director of Duke’s psychiatric emergency services, said the North Carolina woman once had a skin reaction to another virus, which could suggest that her immune system responds jealously to viral infections.

Sporadic cases of post-infectious psychosis and mania have occurred with other viruses, including the 1918 flu and the severe acute respiratory syndrome of the coronaviruses and the Middle East respiratory syndrome.

“We think it’s not unique to COVID,” said Dr. Jonathan Alpert, chair of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, who co-wrote the report on Montefiore’s patients.

He said studying these cases could help increase physicians’ understanding of psychosis.

Symptoms have varied widely, some surprisingly severe for a first psychotic episode, experts said. Goueli said that a 46-year-old pharmacy technician, whose family brought her in after she feared evil spirits had invaded her home, “literally cried for four days” at the hospital.

He said the 30-year-old construction worker, brought to the hospital by police, became “extremely violent”, dismantling a hospital radiator and using his parts and shoes to try to get out of a window.

He also hit the hospital staff with a chair.

The length of time the psychosis lasted and the response of patients to treatment has varied.

The woman in Britain – whose symptoms included paranoia about the color red and terror that the nurses were demons harming her and a family member – took a few 40 days to recover, according to a case report.

The 49-year-old man treated at Montefiore was discharged after several weeks of hospitalization, but “was still fighting two months away” and required readmission, Gabbay said.

The North Carolina woman, who was convinced cell phones were tracking her and her partner would steal her pandemic stimulus money, did not improve with the first drug, said Duke’s Dr. Jonathan Komisar, who said the Doctors initially thought her symptoms reflected the bipola disorderr.

“When we started to realize that maybe this wasn’t going to be resolved right away,” he said, he was given an antipsychotic, risperidone, and was discharged within a week.

The physical therapist who planned to murder her children was having more difficulty.

“Every day, she was getting worse,” Goueli said. “We probably tried eight different drugs,” including antidepressants, antipsychotics and lithium.

“She was so ill that we considered electroconvulsive therapy for her because nothing was working.”

Within two weeks of his hospitalization, he couldn’t remember what his two-year-old son was like.

The calls to the family were heartbreaking because “‘You could hear one in the background saying’ When is mom coming home? ‘” Goueli said.

“That brought him a lot of shame because he said: ‘I can’t be around my children and here they are loving me.’

Eventually the risperidone proved effective and after four weeks, she returned home to her family, “95% perfect“, said.

“We don’t know what the natural course of this is,” Goueli said. “Will it eventually go away? Do people get better? How long does it usually take? And are you more likely to have other psychiatric problems as a result? There are so many unanswered questions.”

Investors will ask Qiwi – Newspaper Kommersant No. 232 (6953) dated 17.12.2020

Against the background of the scandal that broke out a week ago around the Qiwi payment service, the company, which is listed on NASDAQ, was filed with the first lawsuit from shareholders in the United States. They accuse Qiwi’s management of misrepresenting information and demand compensation for losses, including from its former and current management. According to lawyers, we can talk about a record for such cases in relation to Russian companies, $ 100 million or more.

According to documents published on the website of Rolsen Law Firm, PA, the lawsuit against Qiwi was filed on December 11 in the US District Court for the Eastern District of New York. The plaintiff was Dale X Ochakoff, who purchased the Qiwi shares from March 28, 2019 to December 9, 2020 and suffered economic damage (amount not specified). This is a class action lawsuit on behalf of all individuals and entities that purchased Qiwi securities during the specified period. The defendants are Qiwi, its co-owners and top managers, including Boris Kim, who served as CEO of Qiwi since January 2020, Sergey Solonin, who headed the company from October 2012 to January 2020, Alexander Karavaev (CFO from July 2013- go to May 2019) and Varvara Kiseleva (Deputy Chief Financial Officer since May 2019).

One of the largest players in the Russian payment market faced problems a week ago. Following the audit, the Central Bank revealed violations, limited Qiwi’s operations from December 7 for six months and issued a fine of 11 million rubles. Restrictions apply to most types of payments to foreign suppliers and money transfers to prepaid cards from corporate accounts. After that, Qiwi lost a quarter of its market value – its NASDAQ shares fell 26%, to $ 10.48, on December 16.

The lawsuit says that the defendants ran the company, were familiar with confidential information, participated in the preparation, production and dissemination of false statements and information.

The claim is based on an investigation by the plaintiff’s lawyers. “The internal control of Qiwi was ineffective, it followed that the Central Bank would impose a fine on the company and restrict its activities,” the lawsuit states. The plaintiff demands to compensate for losses from the fall of the company’s shares, to award interest for the time from the moment of filing the claim to the execution of the decision, to compensate for legal expenses.

Qiwi confirmed that they are aware of the lawsuit: “Such actions of law firms are common practice in the US market with a significant decline in the value of the company’s shares. At the moment, there is not enough information both to analyze the claim itself and to analyze any potential losses. ” They assured that Qiwi is communicating with investors “in a regular mode to clarify the situation.” The Rolsen Law Firm did not respond to Kommersant.

Experts are confident that investors have a chance to win.

“The NASDAQ rules stipulate the obligations of issuers to disclose information that may affect the value of the company and its shares,” explains KIAP partner Anton Samokhvalov. “Failure to provide such information or provide incorrect information, in addition to being a violation of the exchange rules, may be interpreted as misrepresentation (knowingly inaccurate statement) “. According to him, this makes it possible to claim damages on the basis of tort, that is, a claim based on a violation of the law (not a contract).

According to Yekaterina Orlova, head of legal practice at CM Grace Consulting Ltd, the purpose of the claim is to establish a violation in the form of misleading shareholders and insufficient disclosure of information. The requirements are based on the principle of Respondeat superior, subsidiary liability, that is, in this case, the company’s responsibility for the actions of employees. Therefore, requirements are imposed on both Qiwi and its controlling persons. According to the requirements of the SOX law, the lawyer adds, the head of a company whose shares are traded in the United States must sign with his signature the accuracy of information that may affect the decision to purchase shares, as well as be responsible for the timely disclosure of any material circumstances.

Rustam Kurmaev, managing partner of the law firm Rustam Kurmaev and Partners, believes that the amount of compensation may exceed $ 100 million, which “will be a record for this category of cases for Russian companies.”

– In the evening my temperature rose to 37 degrees. I was sleepy and had a headache, like a common cold. In the morning I woke up like a cucumber – I measured the temperature, it was 38 degrees. I felt much better at this temperature than in the evening, so I decided not to miss work. In the evening of the same day, the temperature was high – 38.4. I decided not to take paracetamol, but just watched the movie and went to bed. On the third day, everything returned to normal, – writes the Ufimka.

In the comments, users supported the girl’s desire to be among the first to be vaccinated.


Japan, 2.5 million chickens culled – Last Hour

(ANSA) – TOKYO, DEC 12 – The alarm of an expansion of avian flu in Japan expands nationwide, when the country is in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, with the Ministry of Agriculture calling on all 47 prefectures of the archipelago to conduct thorough inspections of regional farms and to update the authorities in place. To date, about 2.5 million chickens have been culled in just over a month, a figure that exceeds the record of 1.83 million animals killed in the last seasonal infection that occurred in 2010. A number destined to increase after the last report of a farm in the prefecture west of Okayama, yesterday, and the start of another mass culling, equal to 646,000 units.
