Evangelical said COVID-19 might be a ‘wake-up call’ from God for female ‘fornication’ dies of …

first_img– Advertisement – On Nov. 3, long-time evangelical pastor and big-time Trump supporter Rev. Irvin Baxter Jr. died of complications from COVID-19. Based in Plano, Texas, his ministry announced his death at the age of 75. Baxter, a televangelist who appeared on End of the Age syndicated television and radio program and founded Endtime Ministries, preached an apocalyptic-brand of Pentecostal Christianity that has been practiced in the United States since the early 1900s. Baxter had been hospitalized for two weeks before succumbing to the virus. A couple of months ago, on The Jim Bakker Show, while they sold “Pandemic Bundle” DVD books about the end of times, Irving Baxter Jr. explained his thoughts on COVID-19 that he had been “thinking about … the sin of fornication.” According to something he read in the “encyclopedia,” only 5% of new U.S. brides were virgins, meaning that the rest were guilty of fornication. He went on to explain that this may be a “wake-up call” from God. “This coronavirus may be a privilege.” – Advertisement – ScreenShot2020-11-11at8.52.37AM.pnglast_img read more

North Korea has Asia’s first outbreak of H7 avian flu

first_imgApril 5, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – The strain of avian influenza responsible for the deaths of 219,000 poultry in North Korea is not the same as the lethal H5N1 strain many experts fear could cause a worldwide pandemic.Tests conducted by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) have confirmed that the virus in North Korea is an H7 strain, although further subtyping has not been completed, according to an Associated Press (AP) story today.An FAO official said the discovery marks the first time an H7 outbreak has been identified in Asia, where H5N1 has caused poultry outbreaks in nine Asian countries and 50 human deaths in 3 countries since 2003.The FAO’s Hans Wagner traveled to North Korea when news of the outbreak surfaced in late March. “We have a new situation because H7 has so far not occurred in Asia,” Wagner told Reuters television in Beijing today, following his trip.”We want to know: How did it come to such a large farm with relatively good biosecuirty measures?” the AP quoted Wagner as saying. Three factory-style farms within 3 miles of Pyongyang, the North Korean capital, have been affected, news services said.Wagner described North Korean officials as “very cooperative” and said they had approved testing of bird samples by labs in China, Britain, and Australia, according to the AP.News of the outbreak has generated concern about its possible effects on North Korea’s poultry industry. The impoverished, secretive Communist state was thought to have about 25.5 million poultry in 2004, following a massive push to re-establish a local food supply. North Korea has seen widespread famine as a result of many factors, including natural disasters and bad harvests in the mid-1990s. The country has depended on foreign aid to feed its people.By North Korea’s official reckoning, famine has killed 200,000 people; international estimates range from 1.5 million to 3 million deaths, according to a 2000 estimate by the nonprofit group Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF).No human illness cases have been reported in connection with the North Korean outbreak, but H7 viruses have been known to spread from poultry to people before. A recent World Health Organization (WHO) report lists 93 human cases, including one death, as the result of H7 infections. All but four of these were linked with a major avian flu outbreak in the Netherlands in 2003.Although H7 viruses have made people ill, the cases have not been as severe as those in the current H5N1 outbreak in Southeast Asia. In most cases the symptoms, if any, were limited to conjunctivitis, according to the WHO. However, in the Dutch outbreak in 2003, a 57-year-old veterinarian died.Follow-up research on the Dutch outbreak suggested there were high rates of transmission of the virus from chickens to people and secondary transmission from person to person. At least 50% of people exposed to infected poultry in the outbreak were later found to have H7 antibodies, according to a 2004 report by the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM).Further, 59% of people who hadn’t had contact with infected poultry but had household contact with an infected poultry worker had H7 antibodies, according to the RIVM. In all, researchers estimated that 1,000 to 2,000 people were infected with H7N7 in that outbreak, far more than the 89 cases officially reported.”This suggests that the population at risk for avian influenza was not limited to those with direct contact to infected poultry, and that person-to-person transmission may have occurred on a large scale,” the researchers concluded.Four H7 subtypes—H7N1, H7N4, H7N3, and H7N7—have been identified in highly pathogenic avian influenza poultry outbreaks, according to the WHO. It’s not yet clear which H7 subtype has sickened birds in North Korea. Further subtyping of the virus is pending, news services reported today.See also: WHO report “Avian Influenza: Assessing the Pandemic Threat”http://whqlibdoc.who.int/hq/2005/WHO_CDS_2005.29.pdflast_img read more

Spinach-linked E coli cases jump to 131

first_img “Probably, we have a single location that further contaminated large volumes of spinach,” Acheson said. Six people in the outbreak (5%) were younger than 5 years, and 96 (73%) were women, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said in an update today. Of patients who gave the date when their symptoms began, 93% fell ill between Aug 19 and Sep 5. CIDRAP overview of pathogenic E colihttp://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/fs/food-disease/causes/ecolioview.html The CDC said this week that people who experience diarrhea after eating fresh spinach or salad blends containing fresh spinach should contact their healthcare provider and ask that their stool sample be tested for E coli O157:H7. Acheson said it’s too early to make a definitive statement on the virulence of the involved E coli strain, but he said the number of people who have been hospitalized seems high. In a typical E coli outbreak, he said, 25% to 30% of patients require hospital treatment. The FDA continues to receive reports of new cases and new information on brands, he said. “We have not ruled out other recalls as our active investigation expands,” Acheson said. Wisconsin has the highest number of cases with 32, including the one death. Most states have from 1 to 9 cases. Acheson speculated that Wisconsin might have received a disproportionate share of the tainted spinach. Sep 19, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – The tally of people involved in a nationwide Escherichia coli O157:H7 outbreak associated with fresh spinach jumped by 17 today to reach 131, about half of whom were hospitalized, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported. Teams of investigators are currently taking samples at nine farms that were growing spinach for Natural Selection Foods at the time of the outbreak. All the farms were linked to product codes on fresh spinach bags submitted by patients, he said. Monterey County, Calif., which includes the part of the Salinas Valley where much of the spinach is grown, has 10,480 acres devoted to spinach farming. The FDA first announced the outbreak on Sep 14 when it advised consumers to avoid eating fresh spinach or any products containing it, because most patients said they had consumed fresh spinach. Two producers—Natural Selection Foods and River Ranch—have voluntarily recalled their products that contain fresh spinach. Yesterday, Natural Selection Foods said that none of the bags submitted by patients were from its organic brands. However, Acheson said the FDA has not ruled out the organic products as a culprit. At a press conference this afternoon, David Acheson, MD, chief medical officer for the FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, said two more patients developed hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), which can cause kidney failure and death, bringing HUS cases to 20. Nationwide, he said, 66 patients have been hospitalized with the illness. The death toll remained at one today, and the number of affected states stayed the same at 21. Investigators have taken spinach samples at production facilities and from bags sent in by consumers, Acheson said. Test results are expected in the next 3 or 4 days.

For the third time in a row, Istria was declared the best extra virgin olive growing region in the world

first_imgAccording to experts from the popular Flos Olei guide, in 2018 Istria was declared the highest quality extra virgin olive region in the world, for the third time in a row in the winning series. It is fair to say that this is a great success for Istria, where extra virgin olive oil has been produced for more than two thousand years.Flos Olei 2018 offers an insight into the results of careful tasting of a large number of samples, presenting olive growing from 51 countries from five continents. This popular “bible” of extra virgin olive oils includes as many as 77 oils from Croatia, of which 75 are from Istria and 2 from Dalmatia.”For the third time in a row, Istria has been declared the best olive growing region in the world due to the largest number of olive growers. We are extremely proud of the success of our olive growers, who confirm that Istrian oils are known and appreciated worldwide. I am especially glad that in the last twenty years Istrian olive growing has been progressively developing, which certainly contributes to the branding of Istria as a top eno gastronomic destination. That is why we fought so hard and managed to protect Istrian extra virgin olive oil with the mark of origin. pointed out the Prefect of Istria Valter Flego. This worldwide success certainly contributes to the branding of Istria as a gastronomic destination, given that extra virgin olive oil is the main addition to dishes and the basic food product of the Mediterranean diet.Istrian olive growers are in the company of exactly 500 of the best olive oils from around the world, which means that in the world production of premium extra virgin olive oils, Istria has a share of as much as 15 percent.FLOS OLEI 2018Flos Olei, a bilingual, Italian-English guide to the world’s top extra virgin olive oils, experienced its ninth edition this year (before that there was a publication called “L’Extravergine”).

New urban art installation in Varaždin – an interactive bench that lights up and plays

first_imgThe city of Varaždin on Franjevački trg received a new artistic urban installation – an interactive bench. The idea of ​​the bench is to symbolize the musical heritage of Varaždin, one of the most important elements of the city’s identity, which is proud of its long, rich and vibrant musical tradition and scene.The bench is designed so that it has five surfaces that produce sound and emit light under load. The sound samples, created by Varaždin music artist Emil Herceg, are ambient, as is the light produced, and the interactivity and modularity of the design allows the tonal setting to change depending on the time of day, season or other authors.This is an intervention in space realized through the project “Art on the street – urban furniture in the function of tourism” which the Tourist Board of the City of Varaždin has been continuously implementing since 2012. The aim of the project is to enrich the public space of Varaždin with permanent artistic creations that strengthen the city’s identity, enrich its cultural and tourist image and strengthen the comfort of living and living in Varaždin.So far, as part of this project, a number of art installations have been set up in the historic city center, such as the city’s “roommates” (turtles, mermaids, iron man…), the installation View and Birds, benches Obluci, the Royal Chair, Krinolina ljubavi, the installation Varaždinsko zelje and Varaždinski clip, etc.The project of setting up specially designed and designed benches was created as a result of creative cooperation of TZGV with mentors and students of the Design Studio of the Zagreb Faculty of Architecture and young Croatian product designers.The interactive music bench, which is set up on Franjevački trg in front of the former Varteks department store, is the result of cooperation with Zagreb’s Studio Clinica, which specializes in product design and the design of interpretation setups for various institutions. Based on their idea, the bench was made and equipped by the Varaždin team.last_img read more

Zagreb Burger Festival has made the burger evolution on the gastro scene

first_imgZagreb Burger Festival launched the street food revolution in Croatia and, most importantly, proved that burgers are a new trend and a “must have” in tourism.The best proof of this thesis is the fact that all serious hotels have included burgers in their offer, and dropped burgers. This is a big change in the market, so I can freely conclude that ZBF actually made not a revolution, but an evolution – and completely kicked burgers out of the gastronomic game. Also, burgers were found in the offer of top restaurants. So, from spaghetti, pizza and burgers to burgers.It all started with Fuliranje, which laid the foundations of Advent in Zagreb and practically branded Advent through Fuliranje, and continued with the Zagreb Burger Festival, Articulation and Foodballer – what accompanies the whole story is great, quality content and production and “that something” and a great atmosphere. What is the magic formula for success? Excellent production, quality and story.And on Sunday, ZBF closed its third edition, and once again proved that quality content is a motive for coming as well as a generator of tourist spending.So far, the most successful edition of this gourmet event in eleven days was visited by about 190.000 people, which once again confirmed and defended the title of the most visited Croatian street food event.Visitors enjoyed the offer of as many as 18 caterers from Zagreb, Split and Pula, 5 bars and accompanying facilities such as Kid’s zone and photo points. 18 DJs showed their skills on stage, and two concerts were held. This is a short summary of the Zagreb Burger Festival, which again this year showed the direction in which festivals must develop and grow – and this is primarily by raising the quality of performance, content and raising the scale from year to year.Also, it should be noted that ZBF grows, develops and surprises with something new every time. It doesn’t grow in the context of expanding headlong, just to sell another cottage, but it grows in quality and production. This is exactly the trap of various festivals and events, which are always the same and do not innovate or develop through some new content or better production. So every year ZBF surprises with something new and different, and the expectations of visitors are not that they are completely met, but even exceeded.So this year, for the first time, the beer sponsor is no longer one of the famous industrial breweries, but a craft brewery, more precisely The Garden Brewery, has bravely taken its place. Also, this year the organizers tried to reduce queues and waiting by introducing a mobile application, through which you could order your burger and get a notification as soon as it is finished. I emphasize they tried, because I’m not sure how successful they were at it. Not because of poor performance, but simply because of too much crowd. Proof of this is my personal arrival at ZBF on Monday at 22:30 p.m. I emphasize, Monday before the end of working hours at ZBF was all full. From the musical point of view, famous foreign DJs came to the Festival for the first time, including the popular Huey Morgan, frontman of the famous group Fun Lovin Criminals and Kenny Dope. And another proof of how the organizers think about the details is the outdoor playroom (inflatable, bungee jumping and trampolines) for the youngest. Some would say it’s an unnecessary expense, as well as investing in flags, arranging tables and many more small details, details that just make a difference and define successful. Burgers with homemade authentic ingredientsEach burger is different and 18 burger masters put so many combinations on the table that you only need “one whole day” to choose which is your favorite burger (about 70 types). But what fascinated me was that there is no industry, only fresh meat from home production, as well as a combination of flavors with local and indigenous ingredients. This is a strong message, as each region can have its own specific and indigenous burgers, which gives it added charm. The food combinations that go with the burger are unlimited and it’s all a matter of imagination and combining different flavors, but it is this authenticity and local affiliation that gives a special charm and stamp to the whole story.Burger made of teran, polenta, kulen, truffles… not every burger is the same and we are leaving the comfort zone of standardization. It is this message that we must send through our tourist offer, quality and authenticity.Pula’s Mason burgers & staff won in as many as two categoriesOn the last day of the Festival in Strossmayer Square, the winners in three categories were announced.Except for the already known one – The Best Burger by People, the best burger flavors were chosen in two more categories: The Best Burger by Food Bloggers i The Best Burger by Food Media. The Best Burger by People is the most important category, because the best of the best are chosen by visitors, but blogger ratings as well as those of the leading gastro media are valuable. In addition to a great offer of food and drinks, the great success of the Festival was favored, in addition to nice weather and a great music program with a change of great beats, with leading world DJ stars such as Huey Morgan, Kenny Dope, Amerigo Gazaway and Danny Kane.By choice visitors the best burger was offered by Mason burgers & staff, the second best burger comes from The Burger Bar, and in third place is Đura’s house. gastro media the best burger at this year’s Festival was offered by Mason burgers & staff. The second place went to Zagreb’s Kascheta, which is participating in the Zagreb Burger Festival for the first time, while the third place is shared by Đurina Hiža, another debutant this year, and 50 A Burger & Champagne Bar. Gastro bloggers were declared the best by Zagreb’s The Burger Bar, and the second place was won by the team from Submarin. Another debutant at this year’s Festival, Cellar Grill, took third place, and outside the mentioned categories, the best vegetarian burger Toto’s Burger Bar from Split was chosen.Solu outRegardless of the fact that the burger masters knew what awaited them, it was difficult to stay on their feet, ie prepare well and stay open until the end of each day. If we know that the price of the burger ranged from 45,00 to 80,00 kn, then we add the price of beer and multiply that by 190.000 visitors – it is quite clear that this is a great consumption and a complete story.Word of mouth marketing has always been and always will be the best advertisementZagreb Burger Festival has achieved one of the few phenomena, so it practically does not need marketing, because the best marketing is their story and the enthusiasm of visitors. Also, all the media has written about him, and if you’re a food blogger and haven’t taken a selfie with ZBF, that’s a miss of the year. It simply created a quality buzz and a casual and urban atmosphere that deserves all the media attention, and yet offers so many stories to tell. Another message for the organizers of other festivals. Follow the example of ZBF, where the media is provided with quality content and many interesting thematic stories, because that is the only right way and a fair relationship with the media, instead of sending dry and low-quality PR announcements. It is important to ensure quality content, as well as to hire professionals who are currently dealing with media relations, as well as professional photographers, designers, etc.… as is the case at ZBF. Nothing is accidental.Visitors are important, not you as the organizerWe organize every festival and event not for ourselves, but for the sake of visitors. That is why it is important to take care of this segment. how visitors move, feel and behave. What is the atmosphere, interaction with visitors, how long they stay, etc.… You can find out this in two ways. The first is to get into the shoes of the visitor himself. Before starting and when planning the festival itself, try to visualize what the festival will look like in the space, what is the layout, where they can throw garbage, what and how they see from all positions, where they can sit…. Stand in the middle of the space, turn around and visualize the whole space. Another way is to monitor and watch during the manifestation the reaction and movement of the visitors. Some things you can fix on the go, while others you can fix for next year.It is ZBF that follows this feeling for visitors at every turn. People are full of positive, energy, nothing is intrusive but spontaneous, people hang out and talk, enjoy quality food and craft beer, listen to quality music that does not rush to New Zagreb, but still gives space for everyone to find their place at the festival in which feels best. Perhaps the best description and image of the whole story is just when you look around you, and everyone is happy, smiling, talking, hanging out live, not over cell phones and the virtual world. ZBF is not just a festival, it has grown into something much bigger, a way of life.Zagreb Burger Festival has evolved on the gastro scene and street food. Of course, he was not the only one responsible for the whole story, but he was the first to show and start a story about burgers or a plastic example to explain, he rolled the story, and the rest is history. In the end, the Zagreb Burger Festival, due to its attractive program, top catering offer, decoration, small details, production, and accompanying content, would not be ashamed of the world’s leading metropolises, and the concept itself is a successful example of how festivals should look and develop.last_img read more
