Netherlands Covid Hospitalization

Published

on

Hospitalization rate for COVID-19 under 30 is higher than ever In the Netherlands. In the Netherlands, there is a large increase in the rate of hospitalization of people under the age of thirty due to coronavirus. The National Center for Patient Distribution, LCPS, said that they have never encountered current rates before and that they should be very careful about this.

The LCPS checks the proportion of coronavirus patients in hospitals nationwide and reports on patients. However, so far, the center has failed to provide a tangible reason for the increased rate of hospitalization under 30 years of age.

It is stated that hospitalizations in this area are in normal care services, not intensive care units.

In recent weeks, the number of cases among the younger age group has been increasing. A spokesperson from LCPS said, “We don’t know the reason for the increase either, this age group appears to be the least risky group; We were also very surprised by the reported hospitalization data.” The center will investigate the source of this rate by doing research on the data.

In the data announced by RIVM in the past weeks, it was announced that the 18-24 age group was higher than before. In this group, 3 thousand out of every 100 thousand people were found to be infected with coronavirus. This rate is 6 times higher than the number of cases in people aged 60 years, 14 times more than in people aged 70!

It is not yet clear whether the reason for hospitalizations under the age of thirty is the high rate of coronavirus cases.

Arts and Entertainment: Amsterdam Guide 2023

Published

on

amsterdam wide guide 2023

Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands, as well as being one of the most vibrant and colorful cities in Europe. As you approach the city, it greets you with its image resembling a fan from afar. This design can actually be thought of as a reference to the fun life of the city, which you didn’t realize at the beginning. 

As you know, Amsterdam is known all over the world for the freedoms it gives to its visitors. When you see the city in daylight, it doesn’t actually look like a city with crazy entertainment: It even paints a pretty innocent picture in your eyes with its sweet, colorful brick houses that you wouldn’t even think there would be a street like Red Light Street.

This small city of the Netherlands is like Pandora’s box for those who like to combine fun and travel. It is a city full of colourful houses, museums and works of art. When you set foot in the city, it draws attention with its regular planning, which we are not used to. Large and small structures, some of which you can be sure are from the Middle Ages, are lined up on the shore of the harbour. A few of them are structures that are important political or artistic centers of the city.

Especially if you have arrived in the city in the morning, it is a pleasure to watch how the sun shines through the port towards the inner parts of the city.

Do not look at how small the city of Amsterdam looks… This small city hosts over four and a half million visitors a year. Of course, it is not for nothing that it is such a preferred travel route. Although it is more free than we are used to in some matters, it should be known that the privileges given to people are not the only reason for this intense influx of visitors.

Places to Visit in Amsterdam

This small city has very narrow streets and colorful structures lined up in these streets. When you step into Amsterdam, we recommend that you take a leisurely stroll starting from Amsterdam Central Station, the city’s central station. You will not have any difficulty in walking around this small area, and you will definitely spend pleasant moments with its wonderful architecture and cute shops. Of course, there are many places to see in this small city, which is one of the art centers of Europe. We have listed the main attractions of Amsterdam for you.

The Royal Palace

This structure is the royal palace in Dam Square. The king uses this place to stay when he comes to the city. It is quite remarkable with its architecture and offers you the opportunity to bring a wonderful memory with you. If you have a special interest, you can take wonderful photos here. The exterior of the palace is architecturally unquestionably beautiful, and the interior decoration is truly dazzling with its reliefs, embroideries and sculptures, each of which is a work of art.

Dam Square

We can say that Dam Square is to Amsterdam what Taksim-Istiklal Avenue is to us. This place can be called the heart of the city in a way. When you come to the square, the first thing that catches your eye is the large number of tourists from different corners of the world who come to visit this place. Musicians, acrobats and artists perform in the square. Dam Square is a center waiting to welcome you with its lively appearance both in summer and winter.

Nieuwe Körk

We are visiting one of the wonderful buildings in Gene Dam Square. Nieuwe Körk, or New Church, is one of the must-see architectural structures of the city. Since the official coronation ceremonies are held here in the Netherlands, this church, which was established right next to the royal palace, is one of the most important symbols for the city. While visiting the interior of the church, do not forget to see the unique processes, the choir stage and the bronze piano.

Amsterdam Canals

One of the must-have activities for tourists visiting the city is Amsterdam canal tours. These canals, which make the night different and the day different in this small city, are definitely one of the rare works that have joined the city in terms of architecture. Whether you want to spend romantic moments on the canals or enjoy the nightlife, our advice is that you should never come back from here without watching the sunset.amsterdam canals wide

 

De Oude Kerk

Next up is one of the oldest churches in the Netherlands. The church, which contains many historical documents and artifacts, is a very remarkable place with its ancient architecture. Located on Red Light Street, the church attracts visitors who come to the street for various entertainments. While you’ve come this far, we think you should include this structure in your route.

The Dutch city of Amsterdam is one of the must-see places in many respects. Of course, the places to visit are not limited to these places. We recommend city visitors to see places such as “ Zedijk ,  Rijkmuseum ,  Van Gogh Museum ,  Anne Frank Museum ,  Westmen ” before leaving Amsterdam.

Billboards of OnlyFans model spark controversy in UK

Eliza Rose Watson in England billboard

Regulatory green light for OnlyFans billboards of controversial model Eliza Rose Watson in England.

In England, the model named Eliza Rose Watson appeared on the billboards of the OnlyFans page, causing controversy. The UK regulator, which started an investigation after complaints that it was not suitable for children to see, approved the ads.

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) received 30 complaints in June and July that posters appearing in Harrow, Tottenham, Lambeth and Edgware were inappropriate and adult content.

One of the billboards used was located about 450 meters from a school.

Complainants argued that the ad was excessively sexual and objectified women.

The ASA said that although Watson’s clothes are open, there is no nudity in the image and Watson’s pose “does not go beyond light sexuality”.

“While we acknowledge that the image of Ms. Watson and references to OnlyFans may be offensive to some, we conclude that, as the ad is not overtly sexual and does not objectify women, it is unlikely to cause serious or widespread discomfort,” the agency said in a statement. took

oily fans campaign ads

Environmental organization  Global Witness then took over three of the boards and turned them into ‘OilyFans’ billboards to comment on the salary package of BP CEO Bernard Looney, whose earnings rose from £4.5m to £10m last year.

OnlyFans is a social media platform that offers a subscription service to adult sexual content.

Watson, 34, told British tabloid newspaper The Sun last month that he earns around £200,000 a month by selling explicit images on OnlyFans. 

He said he spent around £18,000 on the ad campaign, including billboards in the UK and two in New York’s Times Square.

Regarding the reactions to the billboards, Watson said: 

“If people are offended by my ad, I’m assuming they’re also complaining about Ann Summers and Jack Daniels ads. You see ads for gambling, alcohol, sex toys, underwear, there’s no difference between these types of adult ads and my adult ads.”

“This is real business – if a gambling or alcohol company can run ads with far more disruptive effects, why not?”

The ASA concluded that the posters were not placed irresponsibly and decided that no further action was necessary.

dutch supreme court

The Dutch Supreme Court has upheld the ruling that the Dutch national of Palestinian descent, Ismail Ziada, “cannot sue Israel’s former defense minister and another former senior military official for his role in the deadly Gaza airstrike in 2014”.

The Dutch Supreme Court has ruled that two ex-servicemen, including former Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz, are exempt from civil prosecution in the Netherlands in the case of the death of six Palestinians in an airstrike.

The decision was made in December 2021 by the Hague Court of Appeals, with retired military politician Gantz and former Air Force Commander Amir Eshel as senior Israeli officials conducting government policy “regardless of the nature and extent of the behavior imputed against them” in the Netherlands. upheld his decision that he could not be held liable in a civil action.

This means that the Dutch Supreme Court “exempted the Israeli military from prosecution in the Netherlands under civil action and dismissed the claim for compensation”.

Ismail Ziada, a Dutch citizen of Palestinian origin, filed a war crimes compensation lawsuit against former Israeli Chief of Staff Benny Gantz on the grounds that he was responsible for the death of his family.

Ziada had lost her mother, three siblings, aunt and nephew in the Burayj Refugee Camp as a result of Israel’s airstrikes on Gaza on July 20, 2014.

In her application, Ziada had sought damages against Gantz under the ‘Dutch rules of universal jurisdiction’ that allow countries to prosecute serious crimes committed elsewhere.

The lawyers of Ziada, who is of Palestinian origin, argued that these two senior Israeli soldiers do not have immunity because their actions constitute war crimes.

However, since it is the highest judicial authority, there is no other appeal against the Dutch Supreme Court’s decision.

According to UN figures, approximately 2,200 Palestinians, including 1,500 civilians, were killed in these conflicts. 

According to Israeli military and health officials, 67 Israeli soldiers and 6 civilians lost their lives.

Train tickets increase by 6.6 percent in the Netherlands

The government approved the demand for a raise by the Dutch Railways. Next year, tickets will increase by 6.6 percent with the inflation regulation.

The interim cabinet approved the request of Dutch Railways (NS) on Monday. Accordingly, train prices will increase by 3.5 percent next year. This increase will be added on top of the inflation adjustment. Accordingly, prices will increase by 6.6 percent in 2024. In 2026, an additional 3.5 percent increase will be made.

State Secretary Vivianne Heijnen (Infrastructure) stated that ticket prices have increased only to a limited extent in recent years, and that NS’s personnel and energy expenses have increased significantly, and that the company’s request for a hike has been approved.

Advertisement

The 3.5 percent hike will be added to the inflation adjustment that will take place next year. The Central Planning Bureau (CPB) expects inflation to be 3.1 percent in 2024. In this sense, with an increase of 3.5 percent, train tickets will become 6.6 percent more expensive. In other words, a journey fee of 20 euros will increase to 21.32 euros.

The passenger organization Rover is against this decision. Pointing out that prices have already increased by 5.5 percent and subscriptions by 11 percent at the beginning of this year, Rover noted that with the new hike, train travel will be “unaffordable” for many people.

There will likely be another increase in train tickets in 2026. NS plans to make ticket prices 10 percent more expensive during rush hours and equally cheaper during quiet hours. However, it is not yet certain whether this change will be made.

Next year there will likely be an increase in train tickets as well as other public transport fares. Fees for urban and regional transport are expected to rise by about 10 percent next year.
