SPÖ: Härtefonds ist unzureichend   

Cache   

„Der von der Regierung entworfene Härtefonds ist viel zu klein und unzureichend. Die versprochenen 1000 Euro pro Unternehmen reichen vorne und hinten nicht und auf viele Tausend EPUs und Kleinunternehmen wird komplett vergessen“, kritisiert die Nationalratsabgeordnete Oberrauner. Sie fordert sofortige Nachbesserungen: „Wir haben jetzt zum Beispiel viele UnternehmerInnen die zwar voll versicherungspflichtig sind, aber keine Hilfen bekommen, nur weil sie neu gegründet oder investiert haben und daher die festgelegte Umsatzgrenze nicht erreichen. Das kann doch wirklich nicht sein!“, ist die Abgeordnete empört und stellt klar: „Wenn wir die einmalige Wirtschaftsstruktur Österreichs, mit seinen vielen kreativen Kleinunternehmen und Solo-Selbstständigen erhalten wollen, müssen wir die finanziellen Hilfen barrierefrei und unbürokratisch verteilen!".

Sorge bereiten Oberrauner auch die laufenden Betriebskosten für die kleinen Unternehmen: „Ich habe selbst viele Jahre ein kleines Unternehmen geführt. Wenn da von heute auf morgen die Einnahmen wegbrechen und gleichzeitig die Betriebskosten weiterlaufen, dann ist bei Kleinen und Kleinstunternehmen ganz schnell Schluss“, warnt die Abgeordnete. Neben einer höheren Unterstützung aus dem Härtefonds drängt die Abgeordnete daher auch auf ein sofortiges Zahlungsmoratorium für Miete, Strom, Gas und Kreditkarten. Einen entsprechenden Gesetzesantrag habe die SPÖ in der vergangenen Woche eingebracht und werde diesen auch diese Woche wieder vorlegen, in der Hoffnung, dass die Regierungsparteien dieses Mal mitziehen.

There are so many sunscreens on the market, it is often very difficult to know which one to buy.

Sun protection means physical barriers such as use of shade, covering with clothing and hats, as well as application of sunscreen. What are the essential ingredients in sunscreen?

Coronavirus: Situation für Menschen mit Behinderungen   

Cache   

Für Menschen mit Behinderungen ist die Coronavirus-Epidemie eine bedrohliche Situation. Nicht alle, aber viele, gehören zur gesundheitlichen Risikogruppe. Sie sind angewiesen auf barrierefreie Informationen, haben im Alltag Pflege- und Unterstützungsbedarf und/oder erleben die psychische Belastung aufgrund von psychischen Vorerkrankungen noch massiver." „Alle zusammen machen wir uns Sorgen, die Gruppe der Menschen mit Behinderungen ist auf vielen Ebenen gefährdet. Für die Solidarität der Menschen in Österreich und auch die weitreichenden Maßnahmen die gesetzt wurden, möchten wir allen ‚Danke‘ sagen! Gemeinsam schaffen wir das!“", zeigt sich Herbert Pichler (Präsident des Österreichischen Behindertenrates) besorgt, aber hoffnungsvoll.

Die Bundesregierung hat am letzten Wochenende ein Sammelgesetz, das COVID-19 Gesetz einheitlich beschlossen, das bereits heute in Kraft tritt. Damit werden Regelungen getroffen, die die Auswirkungen des Coronavirus so gering wie möglich für die gesamte Bevölkerung und auch die Wirtschaft halten sollen. Der Österreichische Behindertenrat setzt sich dafür ein, dass in der Umsetzung die Unterstützung von Menschen mit Behinderungen weiterhin gewährleistet wird.

Es ist jetzt besonders wichtig, Informationen nur von sicheren Quellen zu beziehen. Unsere Mitgliedsorganisationen, das Sozialministerium und Medien wie der ORF oder BIZEPS bieten seriöse und barrierefreie Informationen.

Abschließend sagt der Präsident des Österreichischen Behindertenrates DANKE an Alle:

die Menschen mit Behinderungen pflegen und unterstützen.

die barrierefrei informieren oder Informationen barrierefrei aufbereiten und verbreiten

die durch ihr verantwortungsvolles Handeln die Ausbreitung verlangsamen

die ihre Hilfe auf unterschiedlichen Wegen anbieten

die füreinander da sind, telefonieren, chatten, einander zuhören in dieser auch psychisch belastenden Zeit.

COVID-19 could lead to an epidemic of clinical depression   

Cache   


Isolation, social distancing and extreme changes in daily life are hard now, but the United States also needs to be prepared for what may be an epidemic of clinical depression because of COVID-19.


We are clinical psychological scientists at the University of Washington's Center for the Science of Social Connection. We study human relationships, how to improve them, and how to help people with clinical depression, emphasizing evidence-based approaches for those who lack resources.

We do not wish to be the bearers of bad news. But this crisis, and our response to it, will have psychological consequences. Individuals, families and communities need to do what they can to prepare for a depression epidemic. Policymakers need to consider – and fund – a large-scale response to this coming crisis.


A perfect storm of depression risks

Most of us know the emotional components of depression: sadness, irritability, emptiness and exhaustion. Given certain conditions, these universal experiences take over the body and transform it, sapping motivation and disrupting sleep, appetite and attention. Depression lays waste to our capacity to problem-solve, set and achieve goals and function effectively.

The general public understands depression as a brain disease. Our genes do influence how easily we may fall into clinical depression, but depression is also, for most of us, substantially influenced by environmental stress. The unique environmental stressors of the COVID-19 crisis suggest that an unusually large proportion of the population may develop depression. This pain is likely to be distributed inequitably.


Health care workers are at risk for depression from COVID-19

Stress and loss

Exacerbating the widespread stress of this crisis, many of us are suffering significant personal losses and grief reactions, which are robust predictors of depression. The ongoing and unpredictable course of these stressors adds an additional layer of risk.

As this crisis unfolds, death tolls will rise. For some, especially those on the front lines, acute experiences of grief, trauma and exhaustion will compound the stress and place them at even greater risk.

Interpersonal isolation

Prolonged social isolation - our primary strategy to reduce the spread of the virus - adds another layer of risk. Our bodies are not designed to handle social deprivation for long. Past studies suggest that people forced to "shelter in place" will experience more depression. Those living alone and lacking social opportunities are at risk. Loneliness breeds depression.

Families, who must navigate unusual amounts of time together in confined spaces, may experience more conflict, also increasing risk. China experienced an increase in divorce following their COVID-19 quarantine. Divorce predicts depression, especially for women, largely due to increased economic hardship over time.


Financial difficulties

The biggest stressor for many is financial. Unemployment and economic losses will be severe. Research on past recessions suggests that rising unemployment and financial insecurity lead to increased rates of depression and suicide. Home foreclosures during the 2008 recession produced a 62% increased risk of depression among those foreclosed.

The mental health burden of economic recession will be distributed inequitably. When the stock market crashed in 2008, the rich experienced large wealth losses but not increased rates of depression. In contrast, those who experience unemployment, debt and financial deprivation during recessions are at significant risk for depression due to increased stress and difficult life circumstances. Minority-owned businesses may be at particular risk for buckling under the strain.

Recovery will be harder

While the COVID-19 crisis increases risk for depression, depression will make recovery from the crisis harder across a spectrum of needs.

Given depression's impact on motivation and problem-solving, when our economy recovers, those who are depressed will have a harder time engaging in new goal pursuits and finding work. When the period of mandated social isolation ends, those who are depressed will have a harder time re-engaging in meaningful social activity and exercising.

When the threat of coronavirus infection recedes, those who are depressed will face increased immunological dysfunction, making it more likely they will suffer other infections. Depression amplifies symptoms of chronic illness. The inequitable distribution of the burden of the crisis will exacerbate existing racial health disparities, including disparities in access to depression treatment.


What to do?

Self-help suggestions are readily available. A good list, more evidence-based than most, is here. It is our experience, however, that such self-help encouragements for depression are not enough, and at times even insulting, for those who are truly struggling.

We need higher-level shifts in policy and how we approach the problem. Economic relief measures from the federal government are crucial responses both to economic recession and psychological depression. We call for a public health campaign to increase awareness of depression and treatment options, and for improvements in mental health sick-leave policies and insurance reimbursement to minimize barriers to treatment access.

How we talk about depression must change. The distress we feel is a normal human response to a severe crisis. Acknowledging and accepting these feelings prevents distress from turning into disorder. Describing depression solely as a brain disease increases helplessness and substance use among those who are depressed and decreases help-seeking. Emphasizing the causal role of our environmental context, in contrast, matches how depressed individuals across different ethnicities view the causes of their suffering, decreases stigma and increases help-seeking.

Finally, we recommend specific treatment options be prioritized. As we have discussed elsewhere, easy-to-train, cross-culturally applicable and effective treatment options exist. We wish for an army of practitioners to be trained and embedded in community and treatment centers across the country, and this army should represent the great diversity of our country.

Depression costs the U.S. economy US$210 billion yearly. That is under normal conditions. An epidemic of depression requires a multi-faceted, multi-level response.

La disabilità come concetto in evoluzione: aprire la strada ad ambienti di lavoro più inclusivi per i ricercatori   

Cache   

Fin dal preambolo del proprio Statuto, l’ADI promuove l’inclusione e le pari opportunità in tutti i livelli della ricerca, dalla formazione dottorale fino al reclutamento universitario e all’inserimento professionale dei dottori di ricerca in settori diversi dall’accademia. Ciò implica il contrasto a ogni forma di discriminazione, inclusa quella verso le disabilità.

Sul piano nazionale, l’ADI difende questo diritto all’inclusione di ricercatori con disabilità attraverso un gruppo di lavoro apposito, che abbiamo presentato lo scorso 3 dicembre. Sul piano europeo, l’ADI collabora strettamente con l’Equality Working Group di Eurodoc, che sta conducendo una campagna di sensibilizzazione sul tema del rapporto tra la professione della ricerca e le disabilità.
Esistono molte disabilità diverse, così come diversi sono i modi per intendere la disabilità come condizione. Quello che manca, invece, è una diffusa consapevolezza del tema e dei mille ostacoli quotidiani che si frappongono tra chi fa ricerca con una disabilità e la sua carriera. L’ADI, come Eurodoc, vuole rendere evidenti le abitudini, gli stereotipi, le carenze strutturali che impediscono una piena realizzazione di alcuni ricercatori in fase iniziale di carriera e fornire supporto a chi sperimenta varie forme di esclusione a causa della propria “diversità”.

Tuttavia, chi sperimenta una condizione di disabilità non deve essere tenuto nell’attesa di giorni migliori concessi dall’alto. Le esperienze di ciascuno sono cruciali per progettare una società diversa per cui lottare tutti insieme. Attraverso i rispettivi  gruppi di lavoro, le due organizzazioni sono pronte a valorizzare il contributo dei ricercatori che sperimentano in prima persona, o studiano, gli ostacoli causati dalla disabilità e vogliono contribuire attivamente alla costruzione di una società più consapevole e inclusiva.

Se volete partecipare, contattate la sede locale ADI più vicina a voi o l’indirizzo mail equality@eurodoc.net.

 

A partire da oggi e fino alla prossima Giornata internazionale delle persone con disabilità, il 3 dicembre 2020, l’ADI collaborerà e seguirà la campagna comunicativa bimestrale curata da Eurodoc sul tema. Ripubblicheremo i testi inglesi tradotti in italiano. Iniziamo oggi con il primo:

 

La disabilità come concetto in evoluzione: aprire la strada ad ambienti di lavoro più inclusivi per i ricercatori

 

La mancanza di consapevolezza sulla disabilità e sulle sue implicazioni per i ricercatori in fase iniziale di carriera costituisce uno dei principali impedimenti alla costruzione di un ambiente di lavoro inclusivo. Eurodoc si impegna ad affrontare queste due questioni fondamentali.

 

Disabilità: un concetto complesso e in evoluzione

La "disabilità" è un concetto piuttosto controverso, emerso per la prima volta nel XIX secolo, e che da allora si è notevolmente evoluto. Sebbene si basi solitamente su due caratteristiche fondamentali, cioè invalidità e limitazioni personali o sociali, esistono molte definizioni diverse di disabilità. Il modo in cui i ricercatori che si occupano di disabilità affrontano la relazione tra le due caratteristiche varia in modo significativo, dando generalmente maggiore rilevanza a una delle due.

Il modello medico si concentra sulla menomazione biologica come causa della disabilità, che è vista come "una menomazione fisica o mentale dell'individuo e delle sue conseguenze personali e sociali". Il modello sociale, invece, vede le barriere sociali come causa di limitazioni e la disabilità come "il rapporto tra l'individuo e il suo ambiente sociale" (Wasserman, et al, 2016; Oliver, 2013).

Indipendentemente dall'approccio che scegliamo di seguire, il concetto di "disabilità" comprende un gran numero di persone con diversi tipi di disabilità e una grande varietà di barriere sociali.

Dopo la Convenzione sui diritti delle persone con disabilità del 2006, è stato adottato un modello di disabilità basato sui diritti umani e sociali. Da allora la disabilità è stata riconosciuta come il risultato dell'interazione tra persone con minorazioni e barriere attitudinali e/o ambientali, che impedisce la loro piena ed efficace partecipazione nella società su una base di parità con gli altri" (Nazioni Unite, 2006).

Questa evoluzione concettuale ha avuto un impatto sia sulla legislazione sia sulle politiche, ma anche sul mondo accademico e della ricerca, poiché ha richiesto la pianificazione diun nuovo programma di ricerca a tema disabilità. Esso dovrebbe promuovere ricerche basate sull'emancipazione, la trasformazione e la partecipazione, in cui le persone con disabilità sono "attori" (esperti) e non "oggetti" di indagine.

Il cambiamento dell'idea di disabilità ha aperto la strada anche al cambiamento degli ambienti di lavoro, mentre le università hanno iniziato ad adottare misure per costruire percorsi di carriera più inclusivi (si veda il Rapporto del Progetto INVITED). Eppure, i ricercatori con bisogni speciali continuano a segnalare spesso la mancanza di supporti anche basilari durante lo svolgimento del loro lavoro (come segnalato questo articolo di Scientific American).

 
L'importanza di una consapevolezza diffusa

I pregiudizi impliciti sono profondamente radicati nel nostro modo di fare. Ad esempio, nel suo Position Paper on Inclusion, la LERU riconosce il potenziale effetto discriminatorio di un sistema di valutazione basato sulla produttività, sulla capacità di ottenere finanziamenti e sulla concorrenza individuale. In un sistema di questo tipo, l'opinione personale dei valutatori ha un grande peso e se, da una parte, la loro revisione può riflettere il merito definitivo della ricerca, dall'altra i pregiudizi personali dei valutatori, anche se inconsci, possono influenzare lo sviluppo di un'intera carriera (LERU, 2019, pp. 21-29). Ciò può interessare in particolare i ricercatori in fase di iniziale di carriera, che in un settore incentrato sull'esperienza devono ancora dimostrare il loro valore.

È importante sottolineare che molte condizioni di disabilità sono invisibili: è il caso del dolore cronico, dell'asma, del diabete o della depressione. Inoltre, alcune disabilità sono trattate come meno problematiche di quanto non lo siano in realtà e l'insensibilità generale verso queste condizioni provoca un'esclusione ancora maggiore.

Eurodoc ritiene che "diversità" equivalga a ricchezza: essere diversi significa vedere le cose da una prospettiva diversa, essere creativi in modo diverso. Questa capacità di immaginare e di lavorare in modo diverso è una delle caratteristiche più importanti per rendere la ricerca sana e produttiva.

Nei prossimi articoli di questa campagna parleremo di come le carriere dei ricercatori in fase iniziale di carriera sono influenzate dalla disabilità, quali sono le buone pratiche in atto e quali dovrebbero essere adottate. Segui #Eurodoc4Inclusion!

Come Eurodoc, vogliamo aiutare tutti i  ricercatori in fase iniziale di carriera ad abbattere le barriere che rendono la loro carriera difficile e frustrante: se sei un ricercatori in fase iniziale di carrieracon bisogni speciali, e vuoi essere attivamente coinvolto nelle nostre attività o condividere la tua esperienza con noi, scrivi un'email a equality@eurodoc.net

Want to win over the most difficult customers? Join us for the Communications in Action workshop, presented by Ros Ronning, to learn the secrets of success.

In our work life, we spend about 70% of our time communicating with others, whether listening, reading, writing or speaking. Discussions between people enable the work of individuals to be combined and coordinated to produce results. Therefore, effective communications are vital to personal and professional success.

If you have ever found yourself muttering under your breath, ‘what part of that did you not understand?’, voicing your frustration by saying ‘how many times do I have to tell/show you…!’ or wondering why your colleagues ‘don’t get it’, you shouldn’t be surprised to learn that effective communication is one of the greatest challenges and barriers to success.

People have very predictable and observable patterns of behaviour which become evident when they are in discussions with others, and these behaviours underpin our ability to communicate effectively. It’s not that you aren’t making yourself abundantly clear, it’s more a matter that you are speaking a different style of language.

The Communications in Action workshop is a hands-on interactive and fun way to learn the language of others.

Sentrel pool fencing   

Cache   

Sentrel Australia offers a functional and high-quality range of fencing options that fit seamlessly into most poolside spaces. Made of thin, vertically oriented cables tensioned between hardwood timber or extruded aluminium, the fences give a sleek finish to pool areas and natural environments. The vertical orientation removes the safety concerns associated with horizontal balustrade systems, whereby children could enter the pool area.

Unlike glass fencing, Sentrel’s barrier system and subtle cables do not require cleaning or prohibit airflow. The system can also be enhanced by under-rail lighting.

Easy to install and requiring little maintenance, the product utilises NSW State Forestry certified Australian hardwood and other sustainably sourced timbers. Sentrel fencing is manufactured in panel form and shipped Australia-wide for on-site installation by a carpenter or competent handyman.


          

The Importance of Granny Flat Termite Barrier Installation   

Cache   

The popularity of the granny flats is on the ascent in Australia. Factors such as multiple applications, a private space for the elderly to live independently, and value addition to the property are some of the major benefits of installing this structure. A granny flat can be either an attached or detached addition to the original property. Whenever you start to construct a granny flat, first consider installing a resilient termite barrier before going ahead with the rest of the project. We at Knockdown Pest Control offer excellent granny flat termite barrier installation services. Why You Need a Termite Barrier Soil is the natural habitat of termites. No amount of effort to kill them or treat the soil can help to get rid of these pests, and they ultimately return to the area. Therefore, it becomes necessary to build a physical or chemical barrier between the soil and the concrete […]

Enhancing Health Care Services for the Incarcerated    

Cache   

Dr. Meghan Novisky, an assistant professor of criminology at Cleveland State University, has received an Aging Research in Criminal Justice & Health (ARCH) grant to enhance understanding of the unique health care issues facing incarcerated individuals in the U.S. The grant program, which is managed through the ARCH Network with funds provided by the NIH National Institute on Aging, supports a nationwide, multi-disciplinary community of emerging and established researchers aimed at catalyzing research and interventions designed to improve health and social outcomes in the growing population of criminal justice-involved older adults.

Novisky’s project “Correctional Health Services for Older Adults: Older Adult and Caregiver Perspectives,” will seek to assess the current health care environment in prisons by conducting in-depth, focus group interviews with currently incarcerated older adults and their peer caregivers in Kentucky prisons. The effort builds on Novisky’s previous work which identified health care related barriers among older incarcerated adults in the Pennsylvania prison system. This included an examination of the disparate access older men have to health care and preventive health services during incarceration.

“The number of criminal justice-involved older adults has risen dramatically in recent decades, resulting in a largely overlooked population of individuals with high rates of health disparities and profound, often co-occurring social and medical vulnerabilities,” Novisky says. 

“Unfortunately, health research has failed to keep pace with this demographic change, leaving little data on the actual impact this is having on the health of prison populations or what to do about it,” she adds. “Through this research my colleague and I hope to help provide information that will assist in developing interventions to meet this population’s unique needs, including focused programs on geriatric health, managing chronic disease and the social determinants of health.”

The research will be conducted in collaboration with Dr. Stephanie Grace Prost, an assistant professor of social work at the University of Louisville.

The Aging Research in Criminal Justice & Health (ARCH) Network, founded in 2020, is jointly housed at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS). It was established with the intention of creating and using evidence-based health and healthcare solutions to design or inform policies and programs that advance criminal justice reform.

Education Technology Platforms to Enable Efficient Education Research   

Cache   

Education research is often a slow and costly process. An even more difficult challenge is replicating research findings in a timely and cost-effective way to ensure that they are meaningful for the wide range of contexts and populations that make up our nation’s school system.

In a recent op-ed, IES Director Mark Schneider and Schmidt Futures Senior Director for Technology and Society Kumar Garg pitched the idea that digital learning platforms may be a way to accelerate the research enterprise. These platforms will enable researchers to try new ideas and replicate interventions quickly across many sites and with a wide range of student populations. They could also open the door for educators to get more involved in the research process. For example, Learn Platform supports districts as they make decisions about purchasing and implementing products in their schools, and ASSISTments provides infrastructure for researchers to conduct cheaper and faster studies than they would be able to do on their own.

IES Director Mark Schneider and NCER Commissioner Liz Albro recently attended a meeting sponsored by Schmidt Futures focused on these issues. Two major takeaways from the meeting: first, there is already progress on building and using platforms for testing interventions, and, second, platform developers are enthusiastic about integrating research capabilities into their work.

As we consider how we can support platform developers, researchers, and education personnel to co-design tools to enable more efficient, large scale research on digital learning platforms, several questions have arisen:  

  1. What digital learning platforms already have a large enough user base to support large scale research studies?
  2. Are there content areas or grade levels that are not well supported through digital learning platforms?
  3. What are the key features that a platform needs to have to support rigorous tests and rapid replication of research findings? 
  4. What are the barriers and challenges for companies interested in participating in this effort?
  5. What kinds of research questions can best be answered in this research environment?
  6. What kind of infrastructure needs to be developed around the platform to enable seamless collaborations between education stakeholders, researchers, and product developers?

We know there are some of you have already given these questions some thought. In addition, there are other questions and issues that we haven’t considered. We welcome your thoughts. Feel free to email us at Erin.Higgins@ed.gov and Elizabeth.Albro@ed.gov. And join NCER’s Virtual Learning Lab in their virtual workshop “Designing Online Learning Platforms to Enable Research” on April 17th, 3:00pm-5:00pm Eastern Time.

BrandPost: Want to Boost Efficiency, Agility, and Speed? Time to Modernize   

Cache   

Today’s CIOs oversee an IT infrastructure that’s far more complex than the traditional data centers that dominated the enterprise technology landscape as recently as five years ago. Certainly, modern environments still include on-premises deployments, but they are now spread out across dozens, even hundreds of locations around the globe. What’s more, they also incorporate cloud workloads, hybrid cloud, and third-party services, many of which operate in a perimeter-less landscape.

All of these different components provide important capabilities, but the sheer complexity of the modern IT environment can reduce agility and present formidable barriers to responding quickly to rapid change. And when faced with an unexpected event like the Covid-19 pandemic, integration within these disparate environments becomes a massive headache that must be overcome at all costs. The lack of a common platform leaves organizations scrambling to figure out where to access information and how to collaborate so they can execute quickly. In a survey by DXC Technology and Leading Edge Forum, 62% of enterprises said they lacked a common set of tools and platforms across the organization; this leads to business units working in isolation as digital islands.

Influence of Back-Barrier Basin Geometry on Multiple Tidal Inlet Systems: The Roles of Resonance and Bottom Friction

Influence of Back-Barrier Basin Geometry on Multiple Tidal Inlet Systems: The Roles of Resonance and Bottom Friction

Reef, K. R. G., Roos, P. C., Schuttelaars, H. M. & Hulscher, S. J. M. H., 2020, In : Journal of Geophysical Research: Earth Surface. 125, 3, p. 1-20 20 p., e2019JF005261.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Observations of barrier coasts around the world suggest that some systems do not conform to the O'Brien-Jarret law. Here we explain this by investigating how resonance and bottom friction affect the response of tidal inlets to variations in basin geometry. Therefore, we develop a morphodynamic barrier coast model that is based on the stability concept of Escoffier for the morphological evolution of the inlets, coupled with an idealized hydrodynamic model that describes the water motion in the outer sea, inlets, and arbitrarily shaped back-barrier basin. We find that the total tidal prism through all inlets is predominantly determined by the (cross-shore) width of the basin and identify three regimes for this. First, a linear regime for narrow basins (i.e., basin width (Formula presented.) tidal wavelength) where a larger basin leads to a linear increase in total tidal prism. Second, a resonant regime for basins with a width around the resonant condition in which the total tidal prism reaches a peak. This resonance condition is a quarter tidal wavelength for basins without friction, which shifts to narrower basins as friction becomes stronger, down to 0.15 tidal wavelength. Third, a dissipative regime for wide basins (i.e., the cross-shore basin dimension or basin width (Formula presented.) resonant condition) with sufficiently strong bottom friction in which the total tidal prism does not change for wider basins, because the tidal wave completely dissipates in the basin.

Documentary: How are grocery workers in Pennsylvania handling the pandemic?   

Cache   

We may not be able to congregate in a movie theater, playhouse or bar these days, but there’s still plenty of close interaction with other humans, especially in grocery stores.

Coronavirus, the medical world says, is more contagious than the flu. The virus can be spread by asymptomatic people through droplets floating in the air. And it can linger on surfaces and items long enough to be transmitted by touch. That’s why we’re bombarded with instructions to wash our hands and stay at least 6 feet away from others.

Based on media coverage from around the country, some grocery workers are anxious. After all, customers in grocery stores touch everything. And employees have to then rearrange or restock those items. We wanted to do a documentary about these workers to offer a glimpse into their lives.

So on March 25 we went into a Karns Quality Foods grocery store in Lemoyne, a suburb of Harrisburg in Cumberland County. We wanted to follow a few workers and show our audience how these people were staying vigilant to keep the virus from spreading. What we discovered was something much more nuanced – some workers were worried, others not so much.

First, I want to note this documentary is not a story about people doing bad things. Grocery workers are just like us, struggling to keep up with the news about coronavirus while living through the same disruptions affecting the rest of us.

On March 25, we found the workers at one Karns store were still coming to terms with the recommendations coming from health professionals. And that makes sense, considering how quick the news has changed in just the past 10 days. When we were shooting this documentary, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended that masks only be worn by medical workers and people who were ill with COVID-19 or tested positive for coronavirus. Now, the CDC is encouraging all Americans to wear homemade masks outside the home.

All of that is to say that the virus response is always changing, and people and businesses are doing their best to adapt.

On April 5, the day before we published FRONTLINERS, the CEO of Karns Quality Foods, Scott Karns, reached out to me. He described the changes made in the week-and-a-half since we visited. Karns store managers gave all staff masks to wear (though, it’s only a recommendation to wear them), all employees have gloves available to them, and the stores installed barriers to shield cashiers and customers from breathing on each other. A letter sent to employees also notified them that their wages are being increased by $2.00 an hour during the pandemic – in many cases that’s at least a 20% pay-increase.

Karns said he and his managers are doing everything they can to make sure the staff at their stores keep up with the CDC’s recommendations. “Two weeks ago, things were very different,” he said.

He’s right about that. The big takeaway from FRONTLINERS isn’t that grocery stores are failing to protect us. It’s something more complicated.

At the time we filmed, we knew that we needed to stay a minimum of six feet from the workers we interviewed if we didn’t have a mask on (which we did so we could film close ups). We also knew we needed to wear gloves to avoid touching surfaces. And we needed to constantly wash or sanitize our hands. It wasn’t easy. We slipped up more than a few times.

And for the most part, the employees we witnessed stuck to the gloves and distance rules. While the six-foot rule is a hard one for a produce worker or cashier to follow, most workers we saw dealing with customers wore gloves. But not everyone wore them, and almost no one wore masks. And as many epidemiologists have said, there needs to be uniformity in prevention strategies if we want this social distancing policy to work.


          

Tanzanie : La Banque mondiale approuve un prêt discriminatoire dans le domaine de l’éducation   

Cache   

Caricature illustrant l'attitude discriminatoire contre l'éducation des filles, dans certains pays africains (comme la Tanzanie). Le père s'exclame : « Emmener des filles comme toi à l'école, cela représente une perte! »

© 2017 Marco Tibasima pour Human Rights Watch
 
(Washington) – La Banque mondiale a approuvé l’octroi à la Tanzanie d’un prêt en faveur de l’éducation de 500 millions de dollars, sans exiger que le gouvernement mette fin à sa politique d’expulsion des écolières enceintes, a déclaré Human Rights Watch aujourd’hui. Le 31 mars 2020, le Conseil des administrateurs de la Banque mondiale a voté en faveur de ce prêt à la Tanzanie pour l’aider à financer son programme d'enseignement secondaire.
 
Le président tanzanien, John Magufuli, a vigoureusement soutenu une politique d’expulsion des élèves enceintes et s’est engagé à la faire appliquer pendant la totalité de son mandat. Les écoles tanzaniennes contraignent régulièrement les filles à subir des tests de grossesse de nature intrusive, et expulsent définitivement celles qui sont enceintes. Les autorités ont arrêté certaines écolières pour s’être trouvées enceintes. On estime à 5 500 le nombre d’élèves enceintes qui cessent chaque année d’aller à l’école, quoique de précédentes estimations laissaient penser que près de 8 000 élèves avaient été forcées de quitter l’école chaque année.
 
« La Banque mondiale devrait œuvrer avec les gouvernements pour faire évoluer les systèmes nationaux d’éducation vers une situation où toutes les filles sont accueillies et pleinement intégrées dans les écoles publiques, y compris celles qui sont enceintes ou déjà mères », a déclaré Elin Martinez, chercheuse senior auprès de la division Droits des enfants à Human Rights Watch. « Au lieu de cela, la Banque mondiale s’est abstenue d’user de son influence et s’est inclinée devant les interdits et les pratiques discriminatoires de la Tanzanie, remettant en cause son propre engagement en faveur de la non-discrimination. »
 
Le prêt de la Banque mondiale inclut des fonds destinés à créer un système de « voies éducatives de rechange », un réseau parallèle payant de centres d’enseignement non officiel destiné aux enfants qui sortent du système scolaire, qui constitue la pierre angulaire du Programme d’amélioration qualitative de l’enseignement secondaire en Tanzanie (Secondary Education Quality Improvement Program, SEQUIP). Ce programme a été mis au point en réponse à une décision précédente de la Banque mondiale de retenir un prêt de 300 millions de dollars destiné à l’éducation secondaire en Tanzanie, prise en partie à cause du mauvais traitement des filles enceintes par le gouvernement.
 
Aux termes du SEQUIP, étudier dans ces centres de rechange est la seule option possible pour les filles qui ont été renvoyées de leur école pour cause de grossesse. Mais ces voies éducatives de rechange ne peuvent être décrites comme offrant l’équivalence de l’enseignement dispensé dans les écoles secondaires du système scolaire national. En outre, l’inscription dans ces centres ne sera pas gratuite et ils ne fourniront qu’une version condensée du cursus scolaire.
 
Dans son approbation du prêt, la Banque mondiale a considéré que les filles qui deviennent enceintes ou qui ont déjà un bébé ne faisaient que « quitter » l’école. En présentant le problème de cette manière, la Banque mondiale a négligé des éléments de preuve de sources indépendantes qui montrent qu’en réalité, ces filles sont expulsées, humiliées par les responsables de l’école et les enseignants lorsqu’elles sont contraintes de subir un test de grossesse ou qu’il apparaît qu’elles sont enceintes, et de ce fait rejetées par leurs propres camarades.
 
La Banque mondiale n’a pas évoqué les préoccupations causées par la politique d’expulsion dans son approbation du prêt, a déclaré Human Rights Watch. De son côté, le gouvernement tanzanien n’a pas adopté de politique ou de décret établissant clairement le droit des filles à continuer à aller à l’école pendant et après une grossesse, ni fourni l’assurance qu’il réintroduirait la politique de « réadmission » abolie par le Parlement en 2017.
 
Tous les gouvernements devraient prendre immédiatement des mesures pour s’assurer que l'enseignement secondaire gratuit soit disponible et accessible à tous et rendre l’éducation obligatoire jusqu’à la fin du premier cycle du secondaire, a déclaré Human Rights Watch.
 
La Banque mondiale ne devrait pas débloquer les premières tranches du prêt avant que le gouvernement tanzanien n’ait respecté son obligation de garantir aux filles un accès égal à un enseignement primaire gratuit et obligatoire ainsi qu’au premier cycle du secondaire. Le gouvernement devrait immédiatement mettre fin à cet interdit discriminatoire et adopter un décret ministériel donnant pour instruction à toutes les écoles d’arrêter immédiatement les tests de grossesse et de cesser de renvoyer les filles enceintes.
 
La Tanzanie est un des deux pays africains qui excluent explicitement les filles enceintes ou les mères adolescentes des écoles d’État. Ces dernières années, de nombreux gouvernements africains se sont fermement engagés à faire en sorte que les filles enceintes ou mères puissent continuer à aller à l’école. Les recherches effectuées par Human Rights Watch ont permis d’établir que les lois, les politiques et les directives qui protègent le droit à l’éducation des filles enceintes et des mères adolescentes sont déterminantes pour assurer que les filles ne fassent pas l’objet de discriminations à l’école.
 
Tous les gouvernements africains devraient adopter des politiques de « continuation » de la scolarité qui soient compatibles avec les droits humains et pleinement mises en œuvre à travers le pays, établissant clairement les droits des filles, de sorte que les personnels scolaires et ministériels disposent de directives claires sur les moyens de fournir un soutien et des accommodements spéciaux aux jeunes mères en milieu scolaire, a affirmé Human Rights Watch.
 
La reculade de la Banque mondiale sur le droit des filles enceintes à l’éducation soulève également des questions au sujet de l’engagement plus général de la banque à mettre en œuvre son Plan-cadre de gestion environnementale et sociale, qui garantit que les prêts de la banque ne puissent pas être utilisés pour perpétuer des discriminations. D’autres groupes sociaux qui font l’objet de discriminations encouragées par l’État en Tanzanie, notamment les personnes lesbiennes, gay, bisexuelles et transgenres (LGBT), pourraient devenir encore plus vulnérables si le gouvernement perçoit une indication que la banque n’est pas prête à défendre ses propres principes de non-discrimination.
 
« Contrairement à la description faite par la Banque mondiale de son prêt à la Tanzanie, les ‘voies éducationnelles de rechange’ ne pourront jamais égaler ce que les enfants retirent d’un enseignement officiel et obligatoire », a affirmé Elin Martinez. « Et contrairement à la plupart des enfants déscolarisés qui ont le choix de retourner à l’école, les filles enceintes se voient dénier arbitrairement le droit de retourner à l’école et sont aiguillées de force vers un système parallèle. »

          

A train engineer in California took the Trolley Problem way too literally and did it bad   

Cache   

Around 1pm on Tuesday, March 31, a 44-year-old train engineer named Eduardo Moreno allegedly derailed a train at full-speed, careening it towards the USNS Mercy, a Navy medical ship for COVID-19 patients that was anchored in the Port of Los Angeles. Fortunately, Moreno's train never actually reached the boat and no one was hurt, although did crash through some concrete barriers and leak a substantial amount of fuel into the parking lot.

According to ABC News:

Moreno allegedly told officers and FBI investigators that he deliberately derailed the train because he was suspicious of the Mercy's intentions and thought it was actually part of a government takeover, the complaint said.

"Moreno stated that he acted alone and had not pre-planned the attempted attack," according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Central District of California. "While admitting to intentionally derailing and crashing the train, he said he knew it would bring media attention and 'people could see for themselves,' referring to the Mercy."

In an interview with FBI agents, Moreno stated that "he did it out of the desire to ‘wake people up,’" according to the complaint.

In other words, Moreno was driven to potential mass destruction by his dogged belief in a conspiracy theory, much like PizzaGate and the MAGA Bomber.

Upon reading this news, I immediately thought of the Trolley Problem, an ethical dilemma used in philosophy discussions where a (hypothetical) runaway train or trolley is on course to kill a certain people, but there is an opportunity to flip the switch and divert the train, which would cause some other sort of damage.

                Hola Vicente te paso los últimos datos:
 La pesca esta muy entretenida con jornadas de innumerables piques con portes medianos y algunos lindos salen y otros que no dan las medidas pero siempre entretenida. Con la clásica linea lagunera,
Encarnando con mojarras, con algunos filecitos de dientudos, se dan los mejores resultados y dependiendo un poco de la temperatura del día voy probando distintos sectores de la laguna que ya tengo bastante bien testeados.
No duden en visitar este pesquero, me llaman y les brindare el mejor servicio.

                         Hoooooooola Vicente y amigos de Jorgepesca, un placer comunicarme nuevamente con Uds., Pesca en Cochicó
Un fin de semana fantástico nos tocó vivir en nuestra Laguna, el sábado 22 tuvimos a gente del Programa “HOMBRES DE PESCA” representados en esta oportunidad por Omar, este veterano pescador y conocedor de innumerables ámbitos pesqueros mostró toda su destreza y compartió algunas anécdotas con este humilde servidor, el resultado… una pesca fantástica y un día mejor aún.
El dia domingo unos viejos amigos se llegaron desde San Justo motivados por las noticias que les llegaban de los buenos resultados que se vinieron dando en nuestra Laguna, así Gaby, Alejandro y Marcelo, se llegaron la noche anterior para estar bien descansados y disfrutar a pleno de una excelente jornada de pesca. El día amaneció con un leve viento de sector noreste que nos permitió un garete suave en la mañana, pero conforme las horas pasaban el viento se intensificaba, al igual que el calor, un radiante sol otoñal nos llevaba hasta los casi 30 grados un clima ideal para los dientudos y juveniles que atacaban en forma permanente nuestras líneas destrozando la carnada y obligándonos a reponerla en forma continua, pese a este inconveniente los portes de las capturas fueron buenos y el espectáculo de ver a los pejes entre las olas segundos antes de tomar la carnada le daban a las capturas una cuota extra de diversión, podemos resumir diciendo que no fue una pesca numerosa, pero si de buenos portes, que el calor no ayudo y que con las primeras heladas Cochicó será todo un espectáculo que nadie va querer perderse.

CUERO DE ZORRO                  R. 33       Km.  348  T. Lauquen           C. 15
                                            Se lograron algunos pocos pejerreyes durante la jornada de pesca. También hay que esperar los fríos.
 
CHIS CHIS                               R. 2   km. 143   Chascomus  c. 10 
                                                        
Hay mucho pejerrey chico pero también piezas de medida
Sabemos que hoy una de las lagunas que mejor está rendimiento en cantidad de pejerrey, es la de Chis Chis.
Para llegar al complejo tomamos por la Autovía 2 y en el kilómetro 143,5 ingresamos a la laguna; este lugar, por estar sobre la ruta, se puede visitar aun los días de lluvia.
Salimos de nuestra ciudad a las 8 junto a Jorge Scenna, Horacio, Claudio Martino y Diego Genco, con la intención de utilizar 2 botes para relevar bien la laguna. Paramos en el km 112 de la autovía 2 para abastecernos de mojarras, en el puesto El Kactus.
Ya en la laguna, nos recibió el encargado del lugar, Eduardo, quien nos recomendó unos lugares para pescar.
La laguna tiene buen nivel de agua; en el centro tomamos la profundidad, y nos marcó 1, 70 mts, cerca de la costa ronda el metro. Ya navegando para buscar una zona de pesca, eran muchísimos los pejerreyes de varios tamaños (entre 10 y 20 cm) que se veían saltando al lado del bote, esto marca que la laguna está muy bien poblada. El viento soplaba del sector este a unos 20 km, ideal para hacer la pesca.
Armamos nuestro equipo con caña de 4 metros, reel frontal cargado con multifilamento y línea de 3 boyas palitos y chupetonas de distintos colores, brazoladas de 5 cm, y anzuelos 2/0.
La pesca la realizamos al garete con ejemplares de distintos tamaños; en total obtuvimos 35 pejerreyes de 25 a 30 cm., como así también muchos que no daban la medida los cuales fueron devueltos al agua. En una jornada de pesca obtendrán muchos piques y capturas, pero pocos que den la medida.
Luego de más de 3 horas de pesca y con una cosecha de 20 piezas de medida, decidimos hacer el último garete del día. Mientras estuvimos anclados en otros sectores la pesca fue buena pero ningún pejerrey daba la medida de 25 cm, así que sólo obtuvimos de medida cuando gareteábamos. Los mejores sectores son frente al pesquero y al galpón amarillo. Cerca de los juntos, muchos cortes por las tarariras que están muy activas y bagres. De costa los pescadores que pasaron el día obtuvieron algunos de medida y mucha cantidad de chicos.

EL PARAISO         R. 86     a 4 Kms. De Laprida

Hoy les traigo, si bien no está la noticia en ningún lado, el dato de que el próximo 21 de Marzo abre después de más de 10 años la Laguna El Paraíso, les cuento que según charle con miembros del Club de Pesca, se abrirá de sol a sol, no se permite embarcado y el valor de ingreso sera de $80 casi con seguridad.
Bueno la verdad, que no se pasan más los días quiero mojar los anzuelos ya en el charco que más alegrías me dio y donde me inicie como pescador jeje
Como dato se sembró en octubre de 2011 cuando la laguna estaba llena, hoy bajo unos 80 cm y la verdad zafó el verano no sé cómo, pero los pejes que he visto en estos días de las personas a las que se les quito los equipos por no respetar la veda son de muy buen porte para los tiempos que lleva sembrada .
Esperemos que este año recupere agua porque el peje ahí engorda como en muy pocos charcos...
 
EL BURRO                               R. 2    Km.  135
                         Hay que visitarla y disfrutar la pesca embarcado de pejerreyes medianos a chicos. De costa difícil la pesca de pejerrey. En esta laguna hay que hacer bien los deberes ya que no es fácil la pesca; la mejor carnada mojarras medianas y panzón. También cuenta con un buen camping para visitarla en familia.
 
HINOJO GRANDE
                                                           Mucho dientudo y los primeros pejerreyes medianos, que hacen decir que puede haber buena temporada.
 
INDIO MUERTO                                                 R. 205   Km. 166
                                                            Elevada mortandad de peces en la Laguna Indio Muerto  Oscar Adorno, del Club de Pesca, informó sobre la situación con la que se encontraron esta mañana en la costa de la Laguna del Indio Muerto. Gran cantidad de peces muertos.
 Adorno dijo y dejó trascender en las redes sociales que “es un día lamentable; recién me comunico con el presidente del Club de Pesca y me comentó que la mortandad de peces es muy importante en la costa de pesca; por este motivo se han suspendido las 12 horas. Hemos pedido ayuda infinidad de veces a las autoridades dando todas las explicaciones posibles de por qué se necesita la desactivación de los canales pero llegamos a la conclusión de que realmente la parte turística no le interesa a nadie, que nos han mentido siempre, que nos versean, que el corredor turístico es para la ‘gilada’, que el principal centro turístico de Saladillo no le interesa a nadie, que lamentablemente en la zona todos los municipios se preocupan por el turismo menos en éste.
Da mucha pena ver que el esfuerzo que hacemos todos no sirve, nos indignamos al no poder retener la poca agua que teníamos; no sería tan importante la sequia si pudiéramos retener. Hace unos días entró por el canal El Gato agua que duró 4 o 5 días y ahora, en estos momentos, también entra por las lluvias de 25 de Mayo pero es imposible retener. Se va por los canales clandestinos.
No sabemos ya que hacer; la indignación es muy grande, el biólogo Gustavo Berasain que nos visito días atrás no entiende cómo este lugar no está protegido, cómo no se interesan por él. No teníamos explicaciones; el medio ambiente, los humedales, el agua dulce, la biodiversidad, la fauna y flora, lamentablemente, a la mayoría de los políticos influyentes no les importa”.
Saludos, un  abrazo y mejor año.

JUNÍN:                                               R. 7  Km. 265
                                                      
Me cuenta el amigo Marcelo Barrientos, sobre su salida a Junín,
Fuimos a probar con los pejes a Junín  Very Happy   tenía noticias que en la compuerta de la laguna de Gómez estaban sacando cantidades de pejerrey aunque la mayoría pequeños.
Hace muchos años un pescador de Junín me dijo si se levanta mucho viento ándate nomas porque se enturbia el agua y no pica más  Shocked   y así fue cada vez que paso eso.
Ayer soplo mucho viento y hoy también cuando estábamos por entrar me acorde y me dije sonamos, pero grande mi sorpresa cuando comenzamos a navegar y saltaban pejerreyes por todos lados.
Hay muchísimo pejerrey aunque la mayoría chicos, seleccionándolos se cubre la cuota con facilidad y creo que si con este día de mucho viento con el agua turbia tuvimos cantidades de piques cuando el clima acompañe la pesca será tremenda.
                                    Saludos,   Marcelo

EL CARPINCHO                            R.  7 Km. 250
                                                       Buen comienzo de temporada está entregando pejerrey mediano, tipo promedio 30 centímetros y mucho chicuelo para devolver, usar anzuelos grandes.
 
MONASTERIO                       R. 2  Km. 144       Chascomus     C. 10
 
                                                                Gareteando podemos obtener algunas piezas, o buscar los grandes a ras de fondo en la zona de juncos. De costa muchas personas la visitaron haciendo pesca de pejerreyes medianos y chicos. En esta laguna no se reservan botes, es por orden de llegada.
 
MONTE                              R. 3   Km.  110         Monte        C. 10
                                                  Una laguna con buena pesca de costa y embarcado; gareteando la zona del centro de la laguna se obtienen pejerreyes de un promedio de 25 cm. De costa muchos ejemplares chicos. No olvidar hacer pesca con devolución.
 
MELINCUE                                                          Santa Fe
                                                   Hola  Vicente que tal tanto tiempo, no te respondí antes por que recién está empezando a moverse el peje por estos lados.  Acá en la zona se está dando en Melincué, con poca cantidad pero muy buenos tamaños, lo que pasa es que todavía están muy activos los dientudos.  En Teodelin y Villa Cañas todavía no arranco firme la pesca, algo se está sacando pero chicos y poca cantidad, es cuestión de esperar unos días más que se enfríe un poco el agua.
                             Un abrazo y muchos saludos a los fieles seguidores de la página,

MANANTIALES                                             R. 2  Km. 129
                                                                Otra laguna que con el comienzo de la temporada, esta queriendo demostrar sus buenos recursos y logros que supo tener en otras temporadas, por ahora la gente de Chascomus que estuvo en Chis Chis, también visitó el lugar y tuvo buenos logros en intentos fugaces desde la costa que realizaron ayer en las últimas horas de La tarde, los resultados fueron ejemplares de un promedio de 32 centímetros.
Mar Chiquita:
                                                                       La pesca de lisas si el tiempo lo permite es espectacular; contratando los servicios de algún guía podrán disfrutar de una pesca única con enormes torpedos o chanchas, como le dicen los baqueanos de la zona. También mucho pejerrey .

                                                            Desde El Día me cuentan que, se está dando un pique regular de pejerreyes de buen porte, siempre encarnando con mojarra y línea chiripa. Es una laguna bastante difícil, pero haciendo los deberes obtendremos buenos ejemplares.
 LA SALADA de MADARIAGA            a 32 Km.  De  Gral. Madariaga  C. 15
                                                              Desde Mardel mi amiga Marcela de Alternativa Deportiva me cuenta que, funciona el camping todo el año, la pesca todavía no se puede desarrollar con normalidad, hubo  siembra y hay que seguir esperando.
LAGUNA LA SOÑADA
                                                 HOLA GENTE AMIGA QUERIAMOS INFORMARLE QUE EL PIQUE EN LA LAGUNA ES TODAVIA MUY ESCASO Y ESPORADICO, LA TEMPERATURA DEL AGU SE ENCUENTRA ELEVADA, Y LOS DIENTUDOS SIGUEN ACTIVOS, ES POR ESTE MOTIVO QUE SE HA DECIDIDO PROLONGAR UNAS SEMANAS MAS CON LA LAGUNA CERRADA.
 NI BIEN EL PIQUE SE REGULE Y EMPIECEN A APARECER LOS GRANDES SE LES AVISARA MEDIANTE ESTE MEDIO.
 MUCHAS GRACIAS Y ESPERANDO SEPAN ENTENDER EL MOTIVO DE QUE NO SE ABRA SALUDAMOS A TODOS LOS AMIGOS
 
 LAGUNA de LOS PADRES
                              Desde Mar del Plata me cuenta Jorge Soler que,
Está rindiendo muy bien la pesca en esta laguna, pero hay que conocerla bien, ya que no es fácil hacer la pesca si nunca la visitamos. La pesca embarcada está bien y con ejemplares de portes que van de 25 a 38 cm.
SALADA DE ORIENTE: 
                                                Generosa la pesca de costa, mucho pejerrey chico, para devolución, aunque algunos de medida, está habilitada con un costo de $60, por pescador, el alquiler de embarcaciones es de $300 el bote para 4 pescadores.
                                                 La pesca es intensa de costa, se obtienen muchos pejerreyes chicos, algunos más grandes. Embarcado mejoran los tamaños, es favorable la pesca en esta modalidad.
 LA TURCA
                                                       La pesca no es tan regular en capturas, pero –a modo de retribución- los ejemplares que se logran son de tamaños más considerados.
LAS BARRANCAS
                                                   Si se dan las condiciones del viento siguen presentes las lisas aunque no es facil que piquen. Los pejes hay ya de 30 a 35 cms. , sobre todo bien temprano con la fresca. Falta que el agua comience a aclararse con los primeros frios.
En el día de ayer se realizó un importante procedimiento en este espejo, lográndose la captura de redes de casi 100 metros en proximidades de la compuerta.
Se labraron las actas correspondientes.
MUY   BIEN

Buen día don Vicente me comunico con Ud. para informar sobre la laguna de Sauce Grande lamentablemente volvió a los niveles del 2013 o sea esta realmente muy baja no permitiendo la navegación y mucha mortandad de peces una lástima,
