And he referred to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic in Cuba: “With 11 million inhabitants on the island, the contagion and fatality rates are much lower than almost the entire planet.” And he charged against the blockade of the United States: “They prevented us from acquiring respirators for intensive therapy units or the purchase of supplies for the production of vaccines “

Former US President George W. Bush, under whom the US deployed troops to Afghanistan in October 2001, called the withdrawal of the US military a mistake. He expressed the corresponding opinion in an interview with Deutsche Welle.

“I think about the translators and other people who helped not only the US military, but also the NATO forces. It looks like they were just left to be slaughtered by these very cruel people, and it breaks my heart, ”Bush said. Afghan women and girls also face “untold suffering” under Islamist rule, he said.

The US military has been in Afghanistan since 2001, the mission in the country began after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, for which Al-Qaeda (a terrorist organization banned in Russia) claimed responsibility. About 3 thousand people became victims of the terrorist attacks in New York, the main targets of the attack were the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

After the terrorist attacks, George W. Bush ordered the launch of Operation Enduring Freedom, aimed at eliminating the terrorists involved in the attacks. The war in Afghanistan became the main part of this operation. According to official data (* .pdf) of the Pentagon, in the period from 2001 to 2014, when the military operation Enduring Freedom was officially ended, 2,218 US troops were killed. These statistics do not include losses incurred by the US Army since 2014, when a joint NATO operation to support the Afghan government was announced. Despite the fact that the United States formally ceased hostilities, the American military continued to participate in clashes with the Taliban and strike at the positions of terrorists.

The State Department announced the consequences of Russia’s “interference” in Libya’s affairs :: Politics :: RBC

Russian “intervention” in Libya has turned into something that has geopolitical implications for the United States, the State Department said. Moscow has repeatedly denied its involvement in the Libyan conflict

Russia’s participation in Libyan affairs affects the geopolitical interests of the United States, a senior State Department official said at a briefing.

“Russian intervention in Libya has turned into something that has geopolitical implications for the United States. The Russians infiltrated precisely on the southern flank of NATO. They project influence on the countries of Black Africa, ”the official said.

According to him, Libya is the largest supplier of oil and gas, which is still “a factor in world economic issues.”

The State Department spokesman also warned that Libya could turn into “another unmanageable space” in which “terrorists can act with impunity.”

The United States accused Russia of the transfer of military aircraft to Libya

After the overthrow and assassination of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, Libya failed to form a single governing body. A dual power was established in the country: on the one hand, the UN-recognized Government of National Accord (GNA), headed by Prime Minister Faiz Sarraj, on the other, an interim government led by Prime Minister Abdullah Abdurrahman at-Thani, which was supported by Khalifa Haftar, commander-in-chief of the Libyan National army (LNA).

The confrontation lasted until October last year. Then the members of the committee, which included five military personnel from the PNS and LNA units, signed a ceasefire agreement in Geneva. In February, during the Forum of Libyan Political Dialogue held under the auspices of the UN in Switzerland, a unified government and a presidential council were elected, which acts as head of state. They must prepare and conduct presidential and parliamentary elections in Libya in December.

The United States has repeatedly accused Russia of participating in the Libyan conflict, in particular, it has declared the presence of Russian mercenaries from Wagner’s private military company (PMC) in the republic. Last May, the African Command of the US Armed Forces (Africom) claimed that Russia had deployed MiG-29 and Su-35 fighters and Su-24 bombers from its Aerospace Forces to Libya to support the LNA. In July of the same year, Africom statedthat mercenaries from PMC Wagner are engaged in mining areas of Tripoli.

The Russian authorities have repeatedly stressed that there are no Russian troops in Libya. If there are Russian citizens in Libya, they do not represent the interests of the Russian state, said President Vladimir Putin.

Seniors prefer the company of humanoid robots – Technologies

Seniors prefer robots: this was demonstrated by the experiment in which the humanoid robot Nadine entertained a group of elderly people in a retirement home by playing Bingo with them. Created by the Nayang University of Technology in Singapore, where the robot was developed, the experiment is presented on arXiv, the site that welcomes articles awaiting scrutiny from the scientific community, and has shown how machines can be an important tool for the care of the elderly, as well as a leisure companion.

“Ever more advanced humanoid robots, as in this case, are proving to be an excellent solution to integrate the current assistance, support and monitoring services for the elderly or people with motor or cognitive deficits”, Filippo Cavallo, dell ‘Institute of Biorobotics of the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna and of the University of Florence.

The protagonist for a few days of the Bright Hill Evergreen Nursing Home in Singapore was Nadine, the robot with female features already protagonist of many other similar experiments and as a receptionist. In this case, the android is committed to entertaining the 29 over 60 residents of the retirement home by playing Bingo with them.

The robot took care of calling the numbers and solving any requests from the participants. All sessions were filmed to monitor the facial expressions and gestures of the participants to assess the level of attention and all the parameters useful to define the involvement. The data were compared with the reactions recorded when humans were driving the activities: it was found that the elderly preferred the robot Nadine. “It is a new confirmation – specified Cavallo – of the great progress made not only in the imitation of human abilities, such as language or voice, but also in all aspects related to non-verbal communication”.

According to Cavallo, however, the function of this type of humanoid robot is not only for entertainment: they are very powerful tools capable of monitoring the conditions of the people they interact with and measuring changes over time, for example for degenerative diseases and being actively used to follow up on therapy patients. “They are not toys, but powerful healing tools. However, it is essential – he concludes – that they are not used to make up for lack of personnel or social contacts ”.
