Foot traffic at big retailers falls after mad rush for coronavirus-related essentials   

Cache   

As regulations get tighter, the negative impact on store traffic could continue

By Gary Guthrie of ConsumerAffairs
April 1, 2020

PhotoIt looks like consumers mad rush for essentials has turned the COVID-19 corner. After weeks of bustling foot traffic at Costco, Sams Club, Target, and Walmart, consumer behavior has started to shift toward a more normal pace.

According to data from Placer.ai, traffic at those big box stores has dropped dramatically since a mid-March spike when the coronavirus scare was creating a cause-and-effect impact on staples like toilet paper, sanitizing wipes, and hand sanitizer.

At the peak, the average foot traffic went up 24.25 percent at those four retailers. In week 13 of the pandemic, things started to slow down: the change in foot traffic at Costco is down 20.52 percent, 14.39 percent at Wal-Mart, 3.27 percent at Sams Club, and 33.54 percent at Target.

Is the impact driven by the pandemic or an indication of a companys resurgence?

Ethan Chernofsky, vice president of marketing for Placer.ai, theorized that many consumers stocked up early on during the crisis and didnt need to go out as often in the following weeks.

There is a downside to stocking up for the long haul. Once you have all the things you need, there is little need for more visits, he said in a blog post. While some expected that the thrill of being able to get out could overcome a lowering demand for actual items, this may not be the case after all.

Following several weeks of massive year-over-year visit increases, Costco, Target and Walmart all saw traffic declines for the first time since the crisis began. While Sams Club still saw a year-over-year increase, it is likely to be as much an indication of the companys overall resurgence as anything coronavirus related, Chernofsky said.

Chernofskys fellow researcher, Tali Rozenman, thinks that what the big box stores are seeing as signs of a normal shopping pattern will also be seen at major grocery chains. Rozenman cited Albertsons as an example.

(As) one of the brands seeing especially strong performance of late, (Albertsons) saw Friday visits drop from a March 13th peak of 135.9 percent above the daily baseline, to visits the next Friday that were just 13.4 percent above. Assuredly, this is still impressive, but a far cry from the initial rush.

Market watchers say the downward trend could continue

Whether consumers have gotten everything they need or not, stricter regulations recently imposed by local, state, and national governments might push this downward trend even further.

And, then, theres consumer confidence to worry about.

Overall, the Conference Board Consumer Confidence Index took a big hit in March, following a nice bump up in February. The Index now stands at 120.0, down from 132.6 in February.

Consumer confidence declined sharply in March due to a deterioration in the short-term outlook, said Lynn Franco, Senior Director of Economic Indicators at The Conference Board.

The Present Situation Index remained relatively strong, reflective of an economy that was on solid footing, and prior to the recent surge in unemployment claims. However, the intensification of COVID-19 and extreme volatility in the financial markets have increased uncertainty about the outlook for the economy and jobs. Marchs decline in confidence is more in line with a severe contraction rather than a temporary shock and further declines are sure to follow.


          

Evaluation of Intravenous Regional Anesthesia of Lidocaine, Medetomidine and Lidocaine-medetomidine in the Hind Limb of Goats   

Cache   

This study was carried out to evaluate the anesthetic, cardiorespiratory, and sedative effect of lidocaine, medetomidine and lidocaine-medetomidine used for intravenous regional analgesia (IVRA) in the hind limb of goats. The anatomical venous map of the pes region was evaluated. Twenty-one mature native female goats were allocated to this study. They were divided into two groups: The first group (n.= 6) was subjected to anatomical evaluation and the second group (n.= 15) was randomly divided into three equal subgroups, which were subjected to the technique of IVRA. The animals received lidocaine HCl (LID), medetomidine HCl (MED), and combination of the two drugs (LID-MED) in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd subgroups respectively. The anesthetic score and cardiorespiratory values were recorded at the baseline (0), and at 5, 10, 20, 30 and 45 minutes post anesthetic injection and at 5, 10, 20 and 30 minutes after removal of the elastic tourniquet. The results revealed that the venous networking in the dorsal aspect of the pes composes of two metatarsal veins in four specimens and three veins in two specimens, which unite at the proximal third of the metatarsal to form a single vein. The onset of desensitization was 12.0±6.0 seconds in LID and LID-MED subgroups. The duration of sedation was 85.0±12.0 minutes (MED) and 91.0±10.0 minutes (LID-MED). The anesthetic score was significantly (P≤0.05) higher in LID and LID-MED subgroups. Marked bradycardia and increased respiratory rate were observed in MED and LID-MED subgroups. It could be concluded that the lidocaine-medetomidine combination that used for intravenous regional anesthesia in goats gives satisfactory results regarding to the sedative and anesthetic effects.

21 aprile – 01 giugno 2012

Inaugurazione sabato 21 aprileore 18.30

A cura di Dores Sacquegna

 

 

Si inaugura sabato 21 aprile alle ore 18.30 presso la Galleria Area 24 Art Gallery di Napoli di Andrea Della Rossa,la mostra d’Arte Contemporanea LATINAMENTE, in collaborazione con la Primo Piano LivinGallery di Lecce e con lacura di Dores Sacquegna. L’evento, alla sua III edizione èun progetto itinerante partito da Lecce nel 2011, esposto Bari nel 2012ed ora tocca la città diNapoli, per poi continuare a Roma, Torino, Milano etc. E’ il primo progetto privato che gira in Italia con una mostra che vede unite otto personalità latine di cui sei artisti provenienti prevalentemente dall’America Latina: Bartus Bartolomes – Venezuela, narezè Coronel – Venezuela, Domingo De Lucia – Venezuela, Astolfo Funes – Venezuela, Paola Puppio Zingg – Venezuela, Ricardo Sanchez – Venezuela e due internazionali: Scott Alger- Usa, Carlo Marcello Conti – Italia.

Gli Otto artisti determinano con la loro poetica tutte le contraddizioni e la ricchezza della loro terra, un rilevante scambio che porta alla luce un SUD del mondo animato da fermenti e contrasti, ma che vuole confrontarsi con il mercato dell’arte internazionale.Gli scambi e le sinergie sono determinanti nello scenario politico-economico che ci accingiamo ad affrontare. Con la “poetica della lontananza dell’infinito”, come indica la curatrice “con LATINAMENTE si avverte il bisogno di una vicinanza, di una unione che supera le frontiere e diviene momento di incontro e dialogo tra culture. Nel segno della fratellanza, della community. LATINAMENTE, è come dire “alla maniera dei latini”. Così, come si fa tra amici. E in questo secondo collettivo, si percepisce il senso del “costruttivo”, di qualcosa che sta andando a crearsi, fra di loro. Tra chi ospita la mostra,chi la cura, chi sceglie e chi si fa scegliere. Perché l’arte non separa, ma unisce. Soprattutto quando è differente”.La mostra “Latinamente” offre un panorama multiplo, diversificato e complesso, come è quello della realtà politica, economica e sociale del continente sudamericano, una delle più interessanti realtà del panorama artistico internazionale. Nella ricerca di questi 8 artisti in mostra sono emersi alcuni nuclei tematici chiave: l'attenzione alla mutazione dei popoli,il rapporto con la vita e la morte per Ricardo Sanchez, la passionalità e l’istintività per Astolfo Funes, la città con i suoi malumori urbani per Bartus Bartolomes, la poesia visiva con Carlo Marcello Conti, la natura umana con Paola Puppio Zingg, il sangue del Venezuela con il minimalismo di Domingo De Lucia, l’adesione profonda al mondo per Scott Alger, la ricerca della luce per narezè Coronel.

発行年月:2019年2月


「肉を焼くことは、対話だ」ジビエを通して繋がる、ふたりの成長物語

始めたばかりの猟で遭難してしまった潮田亮二、35歳。
相棒の猟犬と共に途方に暮れていたところ、無愛想な猟師・大高に助けられる。
かねてからジビエを料理したいと考えた潮田は、大高の仕留めた獲物を
店で出せるように交渉する。しかし、あっさり断られてしまい――。
夢を諦め、ひっそりと生きる猟師。自由奔放でジビエへの愛情を持つオーナー。
謎の趣味を持つ敏腕サービス係。
ふつうと少し違うけど自分に正直な人たちの中で、潮田は一歩ずつ変わっていく。
人生のゆるやかな変化を、きめ細やかに描く、大人の成長物語

                    (角川書店HPより)


ジビエ料理は苦手なので、狩ったものを解体していくのを想像するだけで
ゾゾ~ッとなる(^^ゞ

でも、ハンターの大高とフランス料理のシェフ、潮田のコンビはいいな~。
最初は、ぎこちない二人の会話が、だんだんと親密さを増していくかんじは
嬉しい。

途中、大高が使用している小屋が燃えたり、ほかのハンターのライフルが盗まれたり
物騒な出来事が続き、動物を狩って肉に加工することをよく思わない人の
存在もあるんだと知る。

滅茶苦茶に殺しているわけではない、大高の考えをちゃんと知る機会があれば
また違うんだろうけど、色々な考え方をする人がいるんだな。
だからといって犯罪行為で意を唱えるのは違うと思うけれど・・・。

表題の意味もわかった。

みかんを食べていたひよどりの料理・・・・想像するとやはり・・・(^^ゞ
ひよどり、庭にもよく来るしな~。

でも、大高と潮田みたいな人から作られたジビエ料理なら
ちょっと食べてみたいかも。

Waves of Blue: D-NH schools hold week-ending wave caravan   

Cache   

A long line of cars stretches down Main Street in Dike in front of the elementary school. (Seth McDuffee photo)

News Editor

DIKE-NEW HARTFORD- It’s Friday morning. There’s a massive line of cars being led by a dancing school mascot in the flatbed of a pickup truck outside of your house.

That was a common sight for residents in the Dike-New Hartford area last Friday as a "wave caravan" rolled out through several towns in the Dike-New Hartford area.

The caravan was organized as a way for Dike-New Hartford school district members to celebrate the teachers and students of the area, and to show both sides -- teachers and the community members, are missed by one another while practicing good social distancing techniques.

The parade began its journey in New Hartford, at 9 a.m., then made its way through Stout, on to the Dietrick Mobile Home Park, and then finally ending in Dike around 11 a.m. All the while, there were loud cheers and horns happily honking as the teachers piloted their cars slowly through the many neighborhoods in the community.

The long train of cars was led by one of the district’s yellow school busses, and followed closely behind by a pick-up truck with D-NH Superintendent Justin Stockdale bringing a full-tilt energy in the Wolverine mascot uniform.

Turnout was substantial for the parade, with people either in their cars, or posted in their own yards to greet the teachers with signs and pictures. Windows of both cars and homes were decorated with declarations of “We Miss You!” and “#rollblue”, the hashtag used to trend events in the Dike-New Hartford community.

At the end of the line, another thanks awaited the community members who may have put off breakfast to attend. An "Emergency Donut Vehicle," deployed by Hurts Donut out of Cedar Falls, was set up in the parking lot of the elementary side of the school, and a line of hungry parade-goers rivaling the teacher’s vehicles climbed down the block, made much lengthier by the social distancing practice of six-feet spaces.

UK media outlets told not to promote baseless 5G coronavirus theories

Broadcasters warned they face sanctions if they give airtime to false Covid-19 health advice

British broadcasters are being warned that they face sanctions from the media regulator if they give airtime to false health advice about coronavirus, after a Sussex radio station was given a severe warning for broadcasting baseless conspiracy theories that the pandemic is linked to the rollout of 5G phone networks.

Members of the public complained after hearing a broadcast on the community radio station Uckfield FM, in which a woman introduced as a “registered nurse” claimed, without any evidence, that the rollout of 5G phone technology in Wuhan was connected to the outbreak and that the virus had been created in a lab.

MVOB provides a blanket to each child in the foster care system.  In recognition of Ohio State's 150th anniversary, we will be assembling 150 blankets to donate to MVOB.   The blankets we make will remain in the Delaware County area.

 
Blanket assembly requires using a template to cut the fringe and tie two pieces of fabric together.  No previous experience required.  Anyone from age 10 and up are welcome to volunteer.  Each blanket takes up to 2 hours to assemble so we'll need 15-18 volunteers for each volunteer session.  We have four assembly dates scheduled and you can sign-up for one, two or all four.   We'll provide the blanket kits and scissors - you supply the hands.  

A huge Thank You to First Commonwealth Mortgage for providing sponsorship for this community service project!

With the understanding that specifics may always change during development, to what extent do you see the Solars, Abyssals, and Infernals mirroring each other (or rather, Abyssals and Infernals resembling Solars) in their early/fundamental Charms that compose their bread and butter? For instance, we know Elegant Flowing Deflection remains nearly identical to Dipping Swallow Defense. Is it reasonable to predict that the three Solar cousins will have largely similar baseline mechanics to establish them as equivalent peers before breaking off into their own thematic directions? (To use the Melee example: all three perhaps sharing Excellent Strike / Dipping Swallow > Bulwark capabilities.) Is that more likely in their combat Charm sets where it's harder to have wildly different basics without bigger variance in their core effectiveness?
The current plan is that Abyssals will hew closer to Solars in their basic workhorse Charms before branching off into Charms emblematic of the Deathlords, while Infernals will be more divergent from the get-go.

【コロナ】先輩の行動に絶句!   

Cache   

信じられないえーん

先輩の行動
本当に絶句、、、(涙)

今回の新型コロナウイルスのBCP対策で、
A事務所の先輩Aさんが
私の居るB事務所で仕事してます。




万が一、A事務所で
感染者が出てしまった場合
B事務所で勤務しているAさんが
仕事ができるように。
逆もしかり。万が一B事務所で
感染者が出てしまった場合
A事務所で勤務されている方が
仕事ができるように。




ここからが本題です。




A先輩には仲良いC先輩がいます。
そのC先輩がいるC事務所は
私のいるB事務所と同じ敷地内にあります。
(ビルが2つ並んでるイメージ)





A先輩がC先輩の近くに居る
滅多にない機会
お昼休みを使って
たまには話しできたらなと
思ったのでしょうコーヒー





A先輩がB事務所にC先輩を呼んで
一緒にお昼食べ始めた。付けまつげ
直前まで知りませんでした






確かに気持ちもわかる。
久しぶりに会って話せる。








だけど、この状況下
今??手裏剣手裏剣
A先輩はでB事務所に居て
そのB事務所にわざわざC先輩を呼ぶ?


※C先輩は、仕事面でB事務所と
絡むことは無いため
普段からB事務所に立ち入りません。



もし、C先輩が感染していたら
B事務所にも可能性が及ぶ。

もし、A先輩が感染していたら
C事務所にも可能性が及ぶ。

 

どの事務所も100人以上が勤務しており
色んな可能性が広がってしまう。


せめて、見えないところで
会うのが周りへの配慮じゃないかな。






和気あいあいと
お昼ご飯中だから
もちろんマスクも外す。




A先輩そしてC先輩
社歴からすると大先輩です。
どちらも女性


いったいどこからどこまで
気をつけたら良いのか
線引きは難しいけれど…
せめて、もう少し状況が
落ち着いてからにして欲しいな。

少しでも感染拡大が防げますように。

AYA 022 Are you Drinking enough Water?   

Cache   
Are you putting enough water in your body and do you know what is in the water you are drinking? (https://God.blue/forward.php?url=http://www.advanceyourart.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/2014-01-01-12.06.32.jpg) bottled water Most people are confused on how much water they actually need to drink. While a lot of people may disagree on the exact amount they can agree that your needs will differ based on your body type and your activity level. As a general rule, you should drink half your body weight in ounces of water. This just a baseline, of course. If you exercise, spend time in a hot or dry weather, you consume a significant amount of diuretics, or your medications require more water you may need more water. The easiest way is to stick with the baseline and just drink more as you feel thirsty. It’s not as hard as you think if you break it down into small chunks. Carry a refillable water bottle with you and take slow sips throughout the day. Whatever your preference do not reuse a plastic water bottle. As a general rule, you should be leery of plastic bottles. The companies who create plastic have patients so they are not required to disclose what is actually in the plastic. They then sell the sheets to the bottle manufacturers. Every time a plastic bottle is moved or dropped tiny cracks start to develop causing the chemicals in the plastic to slowly leach into the water. The average bottle of water sits in a warehouse for a year before it’s in a store. This is before you take into account where the actual water comes from. The majority of bottled water is just recycled tap water. https://God.blue/forward.php?url=http://abcnews.go.com/Business/aquafina-source-tap-water/story?id=3428260 (https://God.blue/forward.php?url=http://abcnews.go.com/Business/aquafina-source-tap-water/story?id=3428260) How much do you spend on eating good quality organic food? Our bodies are up to 70% water which means we are what we drink. Do you know what is in the water you are drinking? The best water to drink is naturally clean, pure, and full of minerals. This can come in many forms but the most common forms are well water, spring water, artesian water, mineral water, and alkaline water. All contain essential minerals and nutrients like magnesium, potassium, and sodium. Since they are water soluble they are easily absorbed by your body. Can I drink too much water? You can have too much of anything but you will find it challenging to have too much water. In a healthy adult, your kidneys can filter and excrete 15 liters of water a day. So it’s very unlikely to get too much water, provided you don’t drink enormous amounts at one time. For the majority of people too little water is a much larger problem than too much. Drinking 15 liters of water each day would not only take quite some time but it would make you feel uncomfortable. There are really no circumstances where you’d accidentally drink too much water. Drinking more than you need is a safer bet than drinking too little. Water aids in digestion, makes your skin look healthier, helps you feel fuller so you don’t overeat, keeps your kidneys healthy, and contributes to regular bowel movements. You will lose out on all of those benefits if you don’t stay hydrated. Additionally being dehydrated makes you feel tired and fatigued. The right about of water will help your heart pump your blood more effectively. Water can help your blood transport oxygen and other essential nutrients to your cells. Water also helps energize your muscles and prevents cramping. Water won’t just help you stay more awake and alert during the day but also reduce fatigue during sports and exercise. While you can get by without enough water you won’t feel good and you will be robbing yourself. So drink up!! Are you interested in a quality reusable bottle?

COVID-19 Information - Updated March 30, 2020   

Cache   

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

03/29/2020 1600:  Press release from Costilla County Public Health.  Please direct all media and public questions to the SLV Hotline - (719-480-8719). 

###

Costilla County – Costilla County Public Health has confirmed 2 additional positive cases of COVID-19 in Costilla County. These will be the county's 2nd and 3rd positive cases.  The Costilla County Public Health Agency continues to follow up with lab-confirmed positive cases and contacts.

As a reminder, when positive results are received, out of both respect for the individual and the national privacy laws, Public Health does not release information regarding the identity of those who receive positive test results. If you know someone who has received a positive test result, please be respectful of their privacy and do not share that information with others. 

Community transmission is occurring in Colorado.  In the San Luis Valley, due to limited testing, many individuals are being asked to self-quarantine or isolate without being tested.  A positive test is only one, very limited indicator of the virus in our community. Knowing who has or has not been tested does not change the need to continue to observe social distancing and the Governor’s stay at home order. 

If you believe you have been exposed, quarantine at home for 14 days and be observant of any onset of symptoms.  Individuals with symptoms should isolate themselves at home until they have met the following factors: At least 3 days (72 hours) without fever, with no use of fever-reducing medications; AND improvement in respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath); AND at least 7 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. 

If you have questions, use the SLV COVID-19 information hotline (719-480-8719). 

Questions around symptoms and testing can be directed to the local nurse hotlines: 

SLV Health nurse Line (719-589-2511 ext. 9).

Valley-Wide Health Systems nurse line (719-589-3658, ext 9) or

Rio Grande Hospital nurse line (719-657-4990).

They will assess your condition over the phone and give you instructions on what to do next. 

Continue to find the most current information on this response in the San Luis Valley at www.facebook.com/slvemergency and the www.slvemergency.org website. 

General COVID information: CO HELP line 1-877-462-2911 (English and Spanish) 

Colorado updates and guidance: covid19.colorado.gov/CDC updates and guidance: www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

 

Isolation is separating someone who is sick from those who are not sick. It is routinely done in hospitals, and at this time isolation for COVID-19 is ideally done at home when experiencing mild symptoms. Isolation includes those who have symptoms of COVID-19, those who have a positive COVID-19 test, and for those who might have COVID-19. Symptoms, especially early on, may be mild and feel like a common cold. In isolation, you should stay away from others until you have had no fever for at least 72 hours without using medication that reduces fevers, other symptoms have improved, and at least 7 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. While in isolation, stay home except to get medical care, do not go to work or any public areas. While at home, stay in a separate room from your family and use a separate bathroom if possible. If you need to seek medical care, contact your healthcare provider first or the nurse line for directions. Symptoms management includes plenty of rest, increased fluids, pain and fever-reducing medications, etc. If you need to seek medical care, contact your healthcare provider first or the nurse line for directions.

 

Quarantine. What’s the difference between it and isolation? Quarantine is used when someone may have had contact with someone who is sick, with or without a positive test result. This can include household members or a close contact that has symptoms of COVID-19, had a positive test, or are getting ill and think they might have COVID-19. As with isolation, follow the same guidelines staying home unless you need to seek medical care. Quarantine is for 14 days, if you do get sick, you need to begin following the isolation guidelines.

 

To slow the spread of COVID-19 we continue to strongly recommend that everyone continue practicing physical distancing and staying home unless absolutely necessary. When you do leave your home, whether to visit the grocery store or pick up take out from your favorite restaurant, maintain a distance of at least 6 feet between yourself and others. Comply with the directions from the governor and local counties to keep gatherings to less than 10 individuals.

 

Along with physical distancing, practice actions that protect others, washing your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoid touching your face, cover your coughs and sneezes, avoid sharing household items and clean “high touch” surfaces daily like doorknobs, countertops, light switches, etc.
