Poland’s president on Monday expressed understanding for the “despair” of people who are opening their businesses in defiance of the anti-COVID-19 lockdown, but said they still must be punished for breaking government-ordered restrictions. In comments published Monday, Andrzej Duda was reacting to the swelling nationwide #OtwieraMY (We Are Opening) movement of hundreds of business owners opening their restaurants, hotels, ski lifts, fitness centers and similar businesses to avoid going under as a result of the prolonged social distancing and lockdown, recently extended through January. “I can understand the impatience and often even the despair of people, who see the work of their entire lives falling apart," Duda said in an interview for the conservative weekly “Sieci.”
Einstein is practicing for the bird Olympics! Much like an athlete on uneven bars, Einstein the parrot is nibble on this tree perch. He announces himself and sounds a whistle. Proceeding to do a somersault onto a lower branch, he pulls himself back up. Walking to his next maneuver, he sneezes and rings a toy to signal his next move. Carefully he positions himself, rolls his body over, and grasps a lower branch with his beak, and successfully lands in an upright position before dismounting, aka flying down. Einstein the Talking Texan Parrot is a silly, smart, and popular parrot who loves to talk and entertain! He knows the names of several animals and likes to make their sounds. In addition to his silly vocalizations, he likes to have conversations with his owners, talking, doing animal sound imitations, and acting silly. He also enjoys singing and dancing in some of his video compilations. With his amazing talking abilities and funny antics, Einstein the talking parrot’s videos will keep you entertained for hours! Einstein parrot is also famous for some of his silly quotes and sayings. Online, Einstein, the talking parrot is popular across many social media platforms. Einstein’s favorite places to talk at home is perched on the shower wall, in the kitchen on his drawer, and on his screened-in back porch. As stated on his website, Einstein’s mission statement: “To entertain and bring joy, to foster the human-parrot bond, and to convey that parrots are deserving of immeasurable amounts of patience, nurturing, and companionship.” Einstein’s website, einsteinparrot.com is designed to inform you about the care of parrots and also entertain you. As previously mentioned, Einstein is popular on many social media sites such as YouTube @einsteinparrot, Instagram @einsteinparrot, Twitter @einsteinparrot, and Facebook @einsteintexanparrot. Living with a parrot is a big commitment. Parrots live a very long time. A parrot such as Einstein can live to be 50 or 60 years old. Many larger parrots like Macaws can live to be 100 years old. They all require a lot of care, proper nutrition, training, time, and patience. Parrots need a lot of attention and lots of toys and activities to keep from being bored. Parrots are also expensive, a large cage is an investment, and plenty of play perches to spend out of cage time. Specialized veterinarian care is also required. Most of all they require your companionship and a forever home. Many people decide after the first few years of parrot ownership that the responsibility is too great and the parrots become neglected and sometimes abandoned. When that happens they are sent to parrot rescue facilities to be adopted by a new family or some spend their lives in sanctuaries. It is often said, “Having a parrot is much like raising a raising a 2 to a 3-year-old child for the rest of your life!”
The world's largest syringe maker does not have the capacity to substantially increase U.S. supplies of specialty syringes needed to squeeze more doses from Pfizer Inc COVID-19 vaccine vials in the coming weeks, an executive said in an interview. The vaccine made by Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech, one of two authorized for U.S. emergency use, is shipped in vials initially indicated to hold five doses. Six doses can be drawn with special syringes, call low dead space, which minimize the amount of vaccine left in the syringe after use.
President Joe Biden on Monday will formally reinstate COVID-19 travel restrictions on non-U.S. travelers from Brazil, Ireland, the United Kingdom and 26 other European countries that allow travel across open borders, according to two White House officials. The officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the order, also confirmed Sunday that South Africa would be added to the restricted list because of concerns about a variant of the virus that has spread beyond that nation. Top U.S. infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci called Biden's decision “prudent” Monday in a round of television interviews.

Oxfam warned on Monday (January 25) that for the first time since records began, inequality has grown in almost every country in the world thanks to the pandemic- but billionaires have seen their wealth soar. ''We're seeing the biggest surge in inequality during this period. And what has been so shocking is 10 men - 10 billionaires - have made half a trillion (U.S. dollars) during the pandemic period. So that is enough to vaccinate - you could buy vaccines to vaccinate the whole world and also prevent anybody from falling into poverty. Everybody on Earth would be protected from falling into poverty through that half a trillion." Oxfam's Executive Director Gabriela Bucher said its "Inequality Virus Report' found COVID-19 unleashed an economic storm that hit the poor and vulnerable hardest. With women and marginalized workers facing the worst of job losses. And the World Bank warning more than 100 million people could be pushed into extreme poverty. "So there are many different factors, but one thing we've seen is the thousand billionaires have actually recovered their pandemic losses in nine months. So they were mostly in the stock exchange. So that has recovered and their their wealth has recovered, whereas for the millions and billions in poverty, it will take more than a decade - possibly 14 years - for them to go back to pre-pandemic levels." To tackle the crisis, Oxfam is calling for higher taxes on wealth and corporations, alongside stronger protections for workers. It says a temporary tax on excess profits made by the 32 global corporations that have profited the most during the pandemic could have raised $104 billion in 2020 alone.

The European Union is pressuring the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca to deliver more coronavirus vaccine doses to its 27 nations and to stick to its initial promises once the jab gets EU approval, especially since the bloc has already invested in enhancing production capacity. EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen held urgent talks Monday with company chief Pascal Soriot, and EU nations are also meeting with AstraZeneca to encourage the British-Swedish company to ramp up its vaccine production and meet its contractual targets. The EU, with the economic and political clout of the biggest trading bloc in the world, is lagging badly behind countries like Israel and Britain in the rollout of vaccines for its most vulnerable population and health care workers.
Zhao, speaking to reporters on Monday (January 25), said that the United States "frequently sends aircraft and vessels into the South China Sea to flex its muscles" and that it wasn't "conducive to peace and stability in the region." Zhao also cautioned Washington to adhere to the so-called "one China" policy and "Three Joint Communiques" regarding Taiwan, a reference to the series of diplomatic understandings reached by Washington and Beijing beginning in the 1970s. An American carrier group entered the waterway on Saturday (January 23) to promote what the U.S. military called "freedom of the seas," just days after Joe Biden became president. China has not commented on what its air force was doing, and Zhao referred questions to the defense ministry.
