Good afternoon,

The British pound has seen a few tough trading sessions after markets were rocked by fears over the latest strain of Covid-19. The latest wave of cases in southern Africa, driven by the new Omicron variant, is leading countries around the world to impose new restrictions.

In the UK, face masks will be mandatory in shops and on public transport, while international arrivals are expected to undergo PCR testing from Tuesday.

Health Secretary Sajid Javid called the rules Boris Johnson announced to tackle the variant as “proportionate and balanced”. Javid also said the measures would help ensure that people can “enjoy Christmas with our families”.

As might be expected, risk sentiment took a hit, helping the US dollar rebound across the board as markets turned to safe havens amid the uncertainty.

Have a nice day.

Andrej Kramaric is on the bench for Hoffenheim as they target low-end Greuther Fürth on Saturday (kick off 3:30 p.m. CET)?

Latest

>> Click here for the Fürth-Hoffenheim LIVE blog!

Fürth made history – but not in the way he would have liked – by becoming the first German elite team to have just one point after 12 games. Another loss would be their 11th in a row and would equal the all-time record – set by Nuremberg in the mid-1980s – for such a miserable form streak. Luck is also playing against them. Cédric Itten is absent due to illness, while Paul Seguin is already excluded. Jetro Willems has an ankle problem, while his potential replacement, Gian-Luca Itter, has just returned to training, while Jeremy Dudziak (foot) and Max Christiansen were both forced to cut the session short. Tuesday – but both were at least on the squad. .

Kramaric missed last weekend’s win over RB Leipzig with a head injury sustained on international duty, but the Croatian striker returns to the squad on the bench after training normally this week. But Sebastian Hoeneß has other injury issues as the Hoffenheim coach looks to find a formula to improve their away record by just four points away this season, including losses in their last three games. Christoph Baumgartner, Sebastian Rudy and Jacob Bruun Larsen were unable to train with the squad earlier this week and are all out today.

To concern: Highlights of Hoffenheim’s impressive victory against Leipzig

Match statistics

  • Fürth has not won in the Bundesliga since May 4, 2013 in Stuttgart.
  • Greuther’s three Bundesliga wins to date have all come from his home in the 2012/13 campaign.
  • On loan from Scotland’s Rangers team, Itten scored his second goal in his team’s last game in front of their own fans. After this 2-1 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt, Fürth’s overall home record in the Bundesliga is now as follows: no wins, five draws, seventeen losses.
  • Kramaric has scored two goals in 11 league games this season. He finished with 20 Bundesliga goals in 28 appearances last season.
  • US defenseman Chris Richards has helped the visitors keep five clean sheets in 12 games so far. Fürth conceded in every game.
  • Hoffenheim have won their last four Bundesliga games at home, but have taken just one point in their last five away matches.

Jim sent this report, as an alert to other dog owners:

(Tuesday) around 2pm I was walking our 12 year old Brittany “Copper” on a leash on our daily walk on Harbor Ave when Copper was attacked by a white pit bull dog who was dragging his leash and not under his owner’s control. .

As we passed the Marination Patio and walked north on the path, a man was standing there and a dog was coming from the bushes. He approached Copper and then almost immediately attacked him, tackling him to the ground and holding him with his mouth. It took both me and the man to keep Copper’s dog away.

I immediately took Copper to the South Seattle Veterinary Hospital and he was taken in for surgery. Copper has multiple deep puncture wounds and we’re glad he’s alive. The clinic, its doctors and its employees deserve our thanks.

I file reports with Animal Control and the Seattle Police Department. I want this information to be visible to everyone. This dog attacked Copper without provocation. This dog was not controlled. The owner had no remorse. He left the place telling me it was the fault that my dog ​​had “bad energy”.

I see so many dog ​​owners in West Seattle walking their dogs along the water all day, every day. They must know how to be careful and always aware that this can happen to them. Copper never participated in a dogfight, let alone provoked an attack, and he didn’t deserve to suffer that fate. If you are the owner of this dog, you should be very ashamed of and take responsibility for your dog’s actions.

The Seattle Animal Shelter the file number is C06730536; you can contact Animal Control with any information at 206-386-7387.

The December 5 deadline to comply with President Joe Biden’s immunization mandate for health facilities receiving federal funds is fast approaching, leaving some health officials concerned about the local impact on a workforce already stressed.

In September, President Biden announced that, in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19, his administration would make vaccination against the virus a requirement for facilities that receive funds from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Employees of any establishment receiving these funds would have until December 5e receive their first dose of vaccination, with full vaccination required before January 5, 2022.

Intensify: On Tuesday, coach Mike Tomlin spoke about the safety of Minkah Fitzpatrick on the reserve / COVID-19 roster and regarding Sunday night’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers, he simply said, “We don’t expect not get it back. ”

With Fitzpatrick likely not available to play, the Steelers will certainly call on the next player, and defensive tackle Cameron Heyward is confident that anyone will get the job done.

“I think we’re going to have to bring in some guys, I’m not sure who exactly, but that’s why you have a roster of 53 players,” Heyward said. “There are going to be injuries. There are going to be times when you’re not 100% defending or attacking. The defensive line has to step up a bunch, the linebackers on the inside, the corners. do our part to make sure we minimize the role that Minkah is not playing. ”

Among the names available for extra playing time is rookie Tre Norwood, who has been all over the field this year, from the corner of the nickel machine and even limited time in defense of the pennies.

“When he was drafted, Coach Tomlin called him the Swiss Army Knife,” Heyward said. “He’s been that for us. Every time I see Tre, I squeeze Tre. I feel like we go out every time and he’s squeezed. He knows where he needs to be. He’s a young kid who needs to be. is always on the move and always on the rise. He’s doing so much for this team. A lot under the radar. I think he’s going to be a valuable part of the equation down the road. ”

The defense will face a tall order against Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert, who is the AFC’s fifth-best passer going into Week 11. Herbert has already made 211 passes for 2,350 yards and 18 touchdowns, so the Pass rush is going to have to be on point, something that could be affected by injuries with linebacker TJ Watt and cornerback Joe Haden both missing practice on Wednesday.

“We have guys who have played before, and we need them to step up,” Heyward said. “They’re going to have to step up again this week. I know we have a long list of good quarterbacks that we’re going to play, but we have to beat the best. We’re saying we want to go to the playoffs, what better way to do that than to make a statement with the way we play against these guys. ”

He said it : The last time the Steelers played in Los Angeles, Steelers fans came in droves and took over. Heyward has said he doesn’t know what the deal will be this week, but he believes the Chargers will handle things differently and won’t play Renegade this time around, the song that is used regularly at Heinz Field to bolster the defense.

The comets of Utica are at the dawn of history. The club have won 10 straight games and could open the season with a team record 11 straight wins with a win Wednesday night in Rochester.

One of the players who brought the Comets to this point is the attacker Fabien Zetterlund, who has three goals, nine points and a plus-7 in 10 games. However, instead of traveling to Rochester for the potentially record-breaking game, he drove to New Jersey.

Zetterlund, a third round pick (63e overall) in the 2017 NHL Draft, was recalled in the National Hockey League, thus missing the chance to do some history. It doesn’t bother him.

“No, I’m just happy to be here,” he said after practice on Wednesday. “I didn’t really think about it.”

The Devils will be in Florida over the next few days to face the Panthers on Thursday and two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Lightning from Tampa Bay on Saturday. And Zetterlund is expected to make his NHL debut at some point during the trip.

“The reason you are raising someone is that you plan to put them on the roster,” said head coach Lindy Ruff. “The way it looks now, it probably should happen. “

Zetterlund, who enjoyed dinner on Tuesday night with some of the Swedish Devils’ players, adds an element to the Devils that fits their style of play well. And his style will suit the role the team envision playing it perfectly.

“The only thing I noticed before I even sent him (to training camp) was how fast and hard he was playing,” Ruff said. “He’s playing a game that the opponent has trouble playing against. He uses his skate. He’s strong on his skates. He can reach the net. He can really intimidate his way to the net.

“He realizes that’s the type of game he has to play to have a chance at playing. He played that role well there. It fits what we need here.”

Zetterlund, 22, skated on a line with Michael mcleod, Jimmy vesey and Mason geertsen (players turning across). If it holds, it would be part of the fourth row.

“I want to bring my physique, my speed,” Zetterlund said. “Bring the puck to the net every shift. Play hard every shift. Just be a versatile player.

“I go for it and play the best I can.”

Happy Tuesday – it’s Max Stainkamph here to bring you the news of the day. I hope you are having a wonderful day; come back here throughout the morning and afternoon to keep up with everything happening in the GV and Shepparton.

We expect a high of 18 degrees today, with some clouds in the afternoon.

UPDATE 11:55 a.m .: What you need to know before today’s board meeting

Greater Shepparton City Council is meeting this afternoon and Darren Linton has reviewed the agenda to see what will happen.

First, traffic monitoring around the new site at Greater Shepparton Secondary College Hawdon St through the first quarter of 2022, with a number of changes to local traffic management plans.

Find out all of what they are discussing on the traffic front. In addition, we receive another bin! Purple trash cans will be rolled out citywide from 2023, in line with most other cities in Victoria, but there is a drag: the little red trash cans might not be collected every week.

Darren’s full rundown is here, but it also fits a story I did with Peter Foott this week. We discussed waste and what it will mean for us in the future as we tackle climate change.

It was fascinating to hear from someone dealing with the other end of the recycling bins and having to think about how you logistically recycle all of these things – and the glass bins will be an important part of the making. cardboard, paper and so on much more usable. Check out this story here.

And on that note – I have an early lunch (love an early lunch) – and will be back shortly!

UPDATE 11:15 a.m .: Police request information on wanted man under warrant

Shepparton Police have requested information on a 29-year-old man wanted under a warrant.

They issued the warrant against Raymond Hexter on Tuesday morning and urge anyone who sees him to call triple zero (000) or the Shepparton Police Station.

Read more here.

UPDATE, 10:55 a.m .: Important updates on dogs

The NewLeading bitch Audrey was at Princess Park dog park last night making new friends – the ribbon hasn’t officially been cut, but it’s open.

We’ll have a photographer there at 4 p.m. – if you’re around you might have your pooch on this week’s pets page.

Also, in a canine update of a different kind, reporter Caitlyn Grant had a chat with the Shepparton Go Dog Go group, which is pretty good and tickles my earbuds … drums? They sound good, that’s what I’m trying to say.

Find out what they did with the full story here.

UPDATE, 10:10 a.m .: Prime Minister discusses pandemic legislation

At a press conference that – annoyingly – I couldn’t find live anywhere, Victorian Prime Minister Daniel Andrews and the three crossbenchers involved in framing the pandemic legislation had a conversation with the media in Melbourne.

I must have stepped away from the media reports of this press conference, but The sun herald reported that the three crossbenchers – Fiona Patten, Andy Meddick and Samantha Ratnam, have all faced torrents of abuse and vile threats as they progressed through the legislation.

Mr. Meddick said the trio conducted themselves “calmly, calmly and politely”.

Protesters in Melbourne had also brought a fictitious gallows to protests over the weekend and again last night, in scenes reminiscent of the Jan.6 coup attempt in the United States earlier this year.

Victorian Prime Minister Daniel Andrews dismissed opposition state claims that powers are being used to lock people up and said changes were measured.

“There are those who asked for exactly these measures just a few weeks ago. And as soon as the government did, they changed their position. This is the definition of a political game, ”said Andrews.

“The problem with these wars and our handling of this pandemic is that it is not a game. It is above all about ensuring the safety of people.

He also flagged announcements later this week, whether Thursday, Friday or Saturday, that would indicate what changes would be made to 90 percent double-dose, which is expected to happen around next Wednesday.

Previous announcements indicated that most restrictions on density limits and wearing masks (except in high-risk environments like public transport, hospitals and elderly care) would be removed once the state reached the milestone.

UPDATE, 9:30 a.m .: What’s up with the weather?

Let’s talk about the weather very quickly. It was three degrees overnight in mid-November. It was pretty cold this weekend, but I was lucky enough to kind of drive with sunglasses and wipers on.

It was very strange and very strange, and finally today we seem to be back on the right track. Principally. Tomorrow it will be partly cloudy and 22, then Thursday it will be 28 and it will rain. Then, as it is cricket season, it will rain on the weekends.

SPC factory sales summed up well all of the past week.

North of the border, NSW has recorded 212 new cases of COVID-19 and two deaths.

UPDATE, 9:00 a.m .: Victorian coronavirus figures released

Victoria has recorded 797 new cases of coronavirus and eight deaths, with hospitalizations falling again in the state.

The Victoria Department of Health said 394 people were hospitalized with COVID-19, down from the seven-day average of 418, while 72 people are in intensive care with the virus. Forty-four people are on a ventilator.

UPDATE, 8:30 am: proposed changes to pandemic laws; Shepparton’s vaccination rate has almost peaked

Late yesterday, figures were released showing Shepparton’s second dose vaccination rate was over 95 percent – where the numbers go above.

Federal data does not exceed 95%, which is (I’m guessing) because it is based on population estimates and there is a slight margin of error on the expected population.

From where we were just before the August 20 outbreak – 45 percent double dose – it’s just amazing and something to be proud of.

In other news this morning, the Victorian government agreed to change controversial proposed pandemic laws, which were rushed by the lower house and sparked protests in Shepparton over a week ago and Melbourne in in recent weeks.

The deadline for publishing reasons for pandemic decisions – such as lockdowns – has been shortened, and the prime minister must have “reasonable grounds” to declare a pandemic.

Fines for breaching public health orders have been halved. There are a few other minor changes on the periphery, including the need to formulate pandemic ordinances in light of the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities and with reference to the Equal Opportunities Act.

The laws would replace the declaration of state of emergency that has been in place throughout the pandemic and allowed the government to put in place lockdowns, mask warrants and more. The state of emergency is due to expire next month.

NORTHWEST ASIAN WEEKLY

Last Tuesday’s election reflected the divide between young and old, business and workers, progressives and moderates. The results were dramatic, showing the victory of the moderates and the miscalculation of the progressives.

Polls showed the three business-backed candidates would win: Bruce Harrell for mayor, Ann Davison for city attorney and Sara Nelson for city council. But no one had predicted that Harrell would win as much as 59%. Few could imagine Davision and Nelson would win, and with a substantial lead, as their opponents had made a lot of noise.

Candidates ran on public safety issues, against police funding and much less on ideology even though Democrats accused Davison of being a Republican, passing from a Democrat. Despite the national trend that many voters switched to voting Republican in the last election, this is probably less true with Asian American voters.

Without naming Harrell’s opponent Lorena Gonzalez, Tomio Moriguchi, former president of Uwajimaya, who backed Harrell, said: “The other side is mad”, speaking of “funding the police and encouraging lawlessness. to ruin the city ”.

Ling Chinn, a Chinatown real estate owner, is quick to point out that there is one more Seattle election victory on top of the triple wins.

“We got rid of this woman (Gonzalez). She always sows trouble. Business is not the enemy. Giving up her seat on city council to run for mayor, Gonzalez said she represents workers. His campaign was funded by the unions. With nearly a million dollars to buy commercials of vicious attacks on Harrell and backtrack on his take on police funding, Gonzalez’s poor performance has revealed his weakness as a candidate. She grouped together sexual abuse and other issues to confuse voters about the real challenges Seattle faces. His method angered businesses and the community at large. He also exposed unions’ miscalculation of strength and choice of candidate, and strategies for winning.

Progressives have miscalculated on several fronts. First, the majority of voters were not fooled by the misleading and racist advertisements directed at Harrell. These ads turned on them as “racist,” forcing Gonzalez to remove the ads. She underestimated the intelligence of voters who were more concerned with solutions to overthrow the city, convinced that leadership matters and that divisive politics have no place.

Gonzalez’s divisive style is to turn workers against the business community, especially big business. She has said repeatedly that she will tax Amazon. The businesses provide jobs and income for the community, Chinn said.

“Imagine Chinatown without businesses, we wouldn’t have jobs, no money, we couldn’t prosper. “

Unlike Gonzalez’s approach to Amazon, Harrell aims to work together to find solutions. In meetings with members of the Asian community, Harrell said, Amazon has made billions of dollars in the city, and it has a responsibility to contribute to the well-being of the city, which implies that it will not let Amazon get away with not sharing it. He would give them a chance first, rather than using direct attacks and slurs like many city council members. It reminds me of a Chinese saying, “Be a gentleman first, then be mean”, if he fails.

Harrell supporter Tony Au, an entrepreneur, along with other Chinese Americans, has organized more than eight fundraising events for eight different candidates, from Bellevue to Seattle, from Renton to Burien, who are moderates and above all, not anti-police.

“I learned to support candidates with the right policies. Being in the political process helps the community fight for their rights and make their voices heard. Any political involvement creates an opportunity to unify the Chinese community, whether it is from Hong Kong, Taiwan or China. Then by connecting the entire AAPI community, our family, we work together to choose the right leaders for the city. Democracy means our right to choose.

Rosa Melendez, a delighted, relieved and excited retiree for the citizens of Seattle, had voted “for the principles and justice that Harrell stands for.” I know he wants to increase law enforcement and social services to complement each other. “

Melendez also voted for Davison and Nelson.

“Being a Latina doesn’t mean I have to vote for another Latina (Gonzalez). I vote for the principles that are right for society.

At a South Seattle neighborhood meeting, Chinn said she could understand Harrell’s comment that not all city council members represent the city. Seven of the nine council members represent a particular district with only two members for the city as a whole. Each of these seven members must pay attention to the needs and interests of their own district.

One example is council member Kshama Sawant from District 3. Her constituents complain that she has not responded to her district. People called her about problems and she never returned phone calls.

Why Progressives Won’t Support Harrell

A progressive organization, the Asian Pacific American Coalition for Equality (APACE), supported Gonzalez. Rick Polintan, a board member, who was part of the approval committee, said the question about Harrell’s role in defending former mayor Ed Murray, who was charged with sexual abuse while ‘he was chairman of the board, did not perform well. APACE backed Gonzalez, who was the first board member to call for Murray’s resignation.

Stephen King, who chaired the 37th Democratic District, said he didn’t approve of anyone even though Harrell lives in the neighborhood. Contrary to belief that progressives tend to be younger, King said most of his district members are in their 50s. But Gonzalez was only a voice of approval away.

King said he voted for Gonzalez because when the mayor and council are online, they work together to get things done. But if the mayor disagrees with the council, it would be like before, four more years to fight.

There was more to these legislative districts. An older voter, who did not want to be named, said he was not happy with the people responsible for the approval process.

“They took everything in hand. So he left. He thought his revenge would be to vote against the choices of young people.

In the past, older Asian leaders, being inclusive, often encouraged and mentored young people to participate in politics. Instead of working with different segments of the population, young people felt they had a head start by excluding those who disagreed with them.

Defending oneself

When Harrell met with disenfranchised voters, he said, “Let us take back our city with your help. Many Asian Americans resonated with her feelings. They believed the city was under siege by one-sided militants.

Shiao-Yen Wu, another business owner, supported the three moderate candidates for the Seattle races by donating to their campaign and organizing fundraising events for them. She and her friends advertised in the Seattle Chinese Post to promote these candidates in order to educate Chinese immigrant voters. She then emailed the ad to her circle of 2,000 people. Enraged by city lawyer candidate Nicole Thomas-Kennedy, who advocated no prison for those who have committed crimes, Wu said, “There is no excuse for the crime of poverty. The candidate encouraged people to steal. She has no standard and no brain.

It was the first time that she and her friends had worked so tirelessly for these candidates even though some were not Asian.

“I hate to see the moral level of our city go down. If Seattle City Council had used common sense to run the city, none of these downtown and neighborhood businesses would be closed, due to shoplifting and nearby homeless camps.

Course

Last week’s election was a referendum on what candidates had to do to win. The results conclude that no candidate could win with a one-sided program.

It is also a reflection on the current members of City Council, who are deaf to opposing views.
Council proposed on Nov. 9 to cut $ 11 million from the police service to Mayor Jenny Durkan’s objection.

Mayor-elect Harrell also opposed it. In a statement, he said: “City council must listen to voters’ desire to immediately invest in public safety and reverse the proposed $ 10 million reduction in the SPD budget. Proposing further cuts robs the city of the resources it needs to meet national best practice staffing levels, slash response times, and hire and train desperately needed agents – and is in direct conflict with what Seattle voters say. demanded last week. “

A town hall insider, who did not want to be identified, described the city council as “insular”.
“They just want to listen to who they want to listen to – just a small group of people – workers and young people. This is how they make their decisions. And they won’t back down. This perception is wrong. And they don’t do any outreach about their policies. And this is their downfall.

Don’t wait until 2023 for the re-election of some board members. It is time to recruit new blood to run against those who do not listen to voters.
