Medicinal Cannabis / Reuters

The decision was approved by the Spanish parliament today, June 21, although PP and Vox voted against the measure and ERC and Bildu abstained because they wanted it to go further.

The Spanish parliament approved the use of cannabis for medical purposes, a decision supported by the PSOE, Unidas Podemos, Ciudadanos, PNV and PDECAT, while PP and Vox voted against and ERC and Bildu, who wanted the text to go further, abstained.

This brought the use of cannabis closer to medical purposes, as the Ministry of Health had already declared that it would accept the conclusions of Parliament. The issue is expected to be debated next week, and then the Spanish Agency for Medicines and Health Products (Aemps) will have six months to draw up the final regulations.

Today’s decision (June 21) recommends that patients with multiple sclerosis, certain forms of epilepsy, those suffering from nausea and vomiting after chemotherapy, those suffering from endometriosis, cancer pain and non-oncological chronic pain (including neuropathic pain) can use standardized cannabis extracts or preparations (oils, inhaled or medicated) to relieve their symptoms and these will also be available for other health problems if medical studies support him.

Prescribed by doctors

The document strongly emphasizes that cannabis can only be prescribed by doctors (but not only those in the health service) and recommends that it be dispensed by pharmacies in hospitals and health centres. However, it also opens the door to the idea that normal pharmacies can also dispense it if they are willing to do so. Cannabis treatments must be of a defined duration and the details of the patients for whom the drug has been prescribed must be recorded in a register.

The text also makes it very clear that cannabis can only be used for medical purposes, never for recreational purposes.

Not regulated

Currently, the use of cannabis is unregulated and is only available on the black market. “Patients have to go to a retailer to get it. We have placed these sick people in the hands of a drug dealer or a friend who grows it clandestinely, instead of being prescribed by a medical professional,” said Manuel Guzmán, vice president of the Medicinal Cannabis Observatory, which welcomes the move, but thinks it is long overdue.

“Doctors were able to prescribe other therapies much more powerful than cannabis. It’s like banning beer while letting people drink whisky, vodka or rum,” he said.

Transfer overview

Tottenham have completed the signing of Yves Bissouma, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.

Romano wrote on Twitter: “Official, confirmed. Yves Bissouma joins Tottenham on a permanent contract with Brighon.

“Fee of 29 million euros plus additions and signed long-term contract.”

Bissouma has signed a four-year contract with Tottenham.

The former Lille ace underwent a medical at Hotspur Way yesterday after quickly agreeing personal terms with the club.

The fee is thought to be as high as £30m after the additions.

Meanwhile, Southampton complete Buzunu transfer
Southampton have signed goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu from Man City.

Bazunu has agreed to join the Saints on a five-year deal, the club have revealed.

Bazunu was unveiled by St. Mary’s side on their Twitter account.
Elsewhere, Leeds have reportedly completed the signing of Marc Roca from Bayern Munich.

Roca will join the Whited for a fee of £10.3m plus add-ons, according to Fabrizio Romano.

He completed his medical today and signed a contract until June 2026 with the Yorkshire team.

In other news, Liverpool and Bayern Munich have reportedly AGREED on a fee for Sadio Mane.

The Bundesliga club had already had two rejected offers for the Senegalese ace.

But after Bayern chiefs flew to the UK for face-to-face talks with Anfield bosses, an agreement between the club was agreed.

These costs are in the region of £35 million, according to the Times.

Liverpool will be guaranteed £27.5m, with £5m in appearance-related add-ons and £2.6m in performance-related add-ons.

He is expected to undergo a medical next week ahead of his move to the German champions.

Finally, Aston Villa have agreed a £350,000 deal to sign 16-year-old Rangers and Scotland youth striker Rory Wilson.

SunSport revealed this week how Steven Gerrard’s bid to sign the super kid from the Glasgow Giants was set to go to Fifa following a row over his amateur status.

However, the Ibrox team returned to the negotiating table last night and accepted an improved offer of £350,000.

That fee could be as high as £1m – based on Premier League appearances and Scottish caps.

Rangers will also receive 10% of any future transfer fee Villa will receive for the talented teenager who scored 8 goals in 11 appearances for Scotland’s Under-17 last term.

Industry definition and major segments

Content intelligence is a strategy of processing content information into correct information and delivering data efficiency to a business based on an artificial intelligence system and software. Software and systems that translate business and content data into actionable insights for effective content strategy and tactics are called content intelligence. It gives advertisers a full perspective of the language of their content and enables them to better judge the context of their content. It’s the science of recognizing and anticipating the most valuable content ideas and topics for viewers.

By Component, the market is split into:

By Deployment, the market is split into:

By Vertical, the market is split into:

  • Banking, financial services and insurance
  • Government and public sector

  • IT and Telecommunications
  • Manufacturing
  • Media and entertainment
  • Retail and consumer goods
  • travel and hospitality

  • Small enterprises
  • Medium Enterprises

By region, the industry is classified into:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America
  • The Middle East and Africa

Market trends

One of the major industry growth drivers is the requirement for an artificial intelligence system to analyze consumer preferences, which can boost the growth of an organization. These facilities help speed deployment, reduce delays, facilitate onboarding and provide specialized training. Rapid advances in cloud technology will drive the creation of cloud-based content intelligence, with security being a priority. During the forecast period, large companies will dominate the industry. The global content intelligence industry is expected to be hampered by a lack of resources and time constraints that make it difficult for marketers to continuously produce high quality content. Moreover, the market growth will be limited during this projected period due to the high volume of content.

Due to the growing adoption of big data analytics by small and medium enterprises, North America now dominates the content intelligence market and will continue to do so during the projection period. North American companies are aggressively investing in digital marketing and customer experience projects, as well as new technologies such as AI, NLP, ML, big data and others. Compared to other parts of the world, the percentage of social media users, smartphone users and ad spend in this region is extremely high. The United States has a mobile device penetration of over 90%, followed by Canada, giving marketers a powerful way to target potential customers. Asia-Pacific, on the other hand, would have the highest growth rate during this period. Indeed, modern technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning are increasingly used. Other factors that provide many potential prospects for the content intelligence market include the presence of numerous content intelligence vendors, stable economy, and strong financial institutions in this region.

After a grueling season, transfer window has arrived and we are about to see the money window again, as the squads go from strength to strength for next season. With the 2022 World Cup halfway through this season, we expect a significant investment from clubs and players will also want to position themselves well. Playing time will be very crucial for players who want to attract their national coaches and their places of command at the 2022 World Cup.

For European players, there is an advantage they will have over other players as participating in the ongoing Nations League campaign will keep them in the headlines and give them a chance after probably having difficult seasons in their clubs. This will only work, however, to the extent that their national teams perform well.

French players, for example, are desperate for their Nations League campaign to take off after a poor start. It was expected that the French, who started this competition as champions, would sail easily to the final but after three outings without a win, it is difficult to authoritatively support a sure win prediction today for France on SportyTrader football predictions.

This indeed means a busy off-season is ahead, and as we prepare for talks, sagas and transfers, here we get to sample some of the most profitable to come in recent years in Europe.

Neymar: Brazilian striker Neymar, currently at French giants PSG, remains the most expensive player after his move from Barcelona. He cost PSG £200m as Barcelona acquired him for £79m from Santos. A profit of around £121m makes him not only the most expensive but also the most profitable.

Philippe Coutinho: Proceeds from the sale of Neymar were used to lure fellow Brazilian, Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona from Liverpool. Liverpool, who acquired him from Inter Milan for £10million, then sold him five years later for £120million, making him the second highest-grossing player.

Ousmane Dembele: Still on Barcelona and proceeds from the sale of Neymar, the Catalans were in the market for Frenchman Ousmane Dembele, who eventually joined Borussia Dortmund. While his move from Rennes to Dortmund cost £15m, the German giants moved him to Barcelona after just two seasons, for £105m, making a profit of £95m to place him in the third-highest-grossing player.

Gareth Bale: Another Spanish league player on the most expensive list is Gareth Bale. The Welshman was acquired by Tottenham Hotspur from Southampton for £14.7million in 2007. He was so good that six seasons later Spurs sold him to Real Madrid for £100.8million, reporting £86.1million in profits at the English Premier League club.

Eden Hazard: The Belgium international hasn’t had the best moments at Real Madrid. His time in Spain has so far been plagued by injuries, following a £103.5million move from Chelsea in 2019. Chelsea acquired his services from French side Lille for £31.5 million, so the move to Spain netted them £72 million in profit, making him the fifth-highest-grossing player.

Three proposed routes for the Crenshaw/LAX line extension (to be known as the K line when it opens).

Metro will host two virtual community meetings on June 16 and 21 to discuss initial improvements to route alternatives for the Crenshaw North Extension project and encourage public participation and feedback.

The Crenshaw North Extension will extend the Crenshaw/LAX light rail line north to the D Line (purple) subway on Wilshire Boulevard, then continue to the B Line (red) subway in Hollywood. Metro is currently drafting the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the project based on comments received during the public scoping period in spring 2021.

The three routes under study follow busy traffic corridors, serve major destinations and employment centers and intersect five of the region’s busiest bus routes. Routes will follow parts of San Vicente Boulevard, Fairfax Avenue or La Brea Avenue.

According to the Measure M schedule, the project is expected to begin construction in 2041 and begin service in 2047. Metro, in partnership with the cities of West Hollywood and Los Angeles, is advancing planning work to potentially accelerate the project.

For more information on the Crenshaw North Extension project, please visit metro.net/crenshawnorth. The project team can be reached at crenshawnorth@metro.net or by calling 213.418.3093.

Meetings will use the same Zoom link and will be held on the following dates and times:

Thursday June 16
Noon to 2 p.m.
Zoom meeting link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83798019843

Real Madrid haven’t been afraid to spend big on transfers in the past, but how have all of their signings brought £50m or more to the Bernabeu?

The club and president Florentino Perez have been very proud of their ‘Galactico’ signings over the years and the players have found it very difficult to resist the lure of Real Madrid. The latest is Aurélien Tchoumeni, who will sign from Monaco for an initial fee of 80 million euros.

Not all of Tchouameni’s other superstar signings have been successful, but some have played important roles in the club’s history, and almost all of them are Champions League winners.

Big stars want to play for big teams, and Real Madrid‘s white shirt is the most coveted shirt in the world.

We’ve listed the eight signings that have cost Real Madrid £50m or more over the years, sorted from lowest to highest, and there’s a pretty even split between hits and flops.

Luis Figo

The most controversial transfer on this list, Figo arrived for £54million straight from Barcelona in 2000. The move made global headlines at a time when huge money transfers were not commonplace.

The Portuguese midfielder was a star at Barcelona and picked up where he left off in Madrid, but the move didn’t go down well with the fans at all.

Figo enjoyed five successful years at the Bernabeu but also had a pig’s head thrown at him during El Clasico…

Luka Jovic

Jovic starred as Eintracht Frankfurt reached the Europa League semi-finals in 2019, scoring 27 goals in all competitions and prompting Real Madrid to spend £56m on the striker in competition with Karim Benzema.

However, Benzema was so good that Jovic found himself starving for minutes and rarely impressed when given the chance.

With just three goals in 51 appearances, it’s safe to say Jovic has been a complete flop, and the 24-year-old is set to leave in the summer of 2022.

kaka

One of many big name arrivals during the summer craze of 2009, Kaka joined Real Madrid from AC Milan as one of the leading footballers of his generation.

A fee of £60m seemed fair at the time, but Kaka never really settled in Madrid and struggled with his fitness and form.

The arrival of Mesut Ozil a year later meant his starting spot was in jeopardy, and he eventually left the club in 2013.

With 29 goals and 32 assists in 120 appearances, his Madrid record wasn’t great but he never lived up to expectations and rarely played with the same magic that lit up San Siro.

“I have good memories of Real Madrid,” he said. “Professionally it was a difficult period, but my experience there was very good in every way because I grew a lot, learned a lot and lived with great champions,” Kaka said in 2017.

“There were four years where we won La Liga, the Copa del Rey, the Spanish Supercopa, and I scored goals. Although I expected more, my time at Real Madrid was very good. To be able to say that I played four seasons there is a great pleasure.”

James Rodriguez

Real Madrid have made a habit of signing the latest brilliant World Cup plaything and in 2014 it was Rodriguez who was brought to the Bernabeu.

A £67m deal to sign him from Monaco has been agreed after the Colombian star won the Golden Boot in Brazil and Los Blancos fans were eager to see their new superstar in action.

However, while James was instrumental in winning back-to-back Champions Leagues, he was eventually loaned out to Bayern Munich after failing to gain consistency or find a starting place ahead of Luka Modric or Toni Kroos.

James returned to Madrid for a season after his two-year loan spell, before briefly reuniting with Carlo Ancelotti at Everton, of all places.

He was great in flashes but ultimately a disappointment.

Zinedine Zidane

Almost £70million was spent to bring Zidane to the Spanish capital in 2001, and years later it looks like a bargain.

One of the most gifted players of all time, the French midfielder scored this goal against Leverkusen and lit up Madrid with his silky-smooth skills before retiring in 2006.

He would then return to the club as manager and win three Champions Leagues in a row.

The term ‘legend’ is thrown around too easily these days, but even that doesn’t quite sum up what Zidane brought to Real Madrid as a player and a coach.

READ: Zinedine Zidane and the sacred first touch that separated him from the others

Cristiano Ronaldo

A fee of £85m, 438 games and 450 goals. Four Champions Leagues. A ridiculous kick. Enough said.

Gareth Bale

The Welshman left Real Madrid after becoming one of the most decorated British footballers in history – but it’s been a mixed tenure for the striker.

A world record £90million was spent to sign Bale from Tottenham in 2013, and he was electric during his early years.

Injury, fitness and form issues meant he had a strained relationship with Real Madrid fans, and he even returned to Spurs on loan in his penultimate season.

However, he was finally given a good farewell and Madrid fans finally acknowledged his many contributions to the club.

Eden Hazard

Real Madrid paid £103m to sign Hazard from Chelsea in 2019, even though he only had one year left on his contract. Three years later, he’s not even close to repaying that.

Although he is respected in the dressing room, he will have to do a lot fairer to avoid the label of Real Madrid’s biggest flop.

Hazard has confirmed he wants to stay at the club and prove his doubters wrong, but with Vinicius Jr in such good form it remains to be seen if he will have many first-team opportunities next season.

Public urged to keep 4th of July fireworks celebrations ‘safe and healthy’ https://disturbmedia.com/public-urged-to-keep-4th-of-july-fireworks-celebrations-safe-and-healthy/ Thu, 02 Jun 2022 23:31:09 +0000 https://disturbmedia.com/public-urged-to-keep-4th-of-july-fireworks-celebrations-safe-and-healthy/ As the July 4 holiday approaches, Clark County and partner agencies are asking the public to follow the rules regarding fireworks. “Safe and healthy” fireworks are the only type of consumer fireworks allowed in Clark County and local towns and only from From June 28 to July 4 annually, when non-profit groups are permitted to […]]]>

As the July 4 holiday approaches, Clark County and partner agencies are asking the public to follow the rules regarding fireworks.

“Safe and healthy” fireworks are the only type of consumer fireworks allowed in Clark County and local towns and only from From June 28 to July 4 annually, when non-profit groups are permitted to sell them for fundraising purposes at locally licensed and inspected stalls. The “You Light It, We Write It” inter-agency campaign to educate the public about what’s allowed and what’s not allowed – and the penalties for using illegal fireworks – will be active during the holiday from 4th July. Information about the initiative is available at www.YouLightItWeWriteIt.Vegas. Starting this year, violators caught using illegal fireworks in unincorporated county areas will face an increased minimum fine of $500, up from $250 previously. The Nevada State Legislature authorized the county to increase fines for illegal fireworks in the 2021 session. The legislation provides for fines of up to $10,000 for large amounts of fireworks. illegal artifacts found in the community.

“The use of illegal fireworks in neighborhoods during the 4th of July is a growing problem that we need the community’s help to address,” said Clark County Commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick, who actively worked to resolve the issue. “As residents come and go from the Las Vegas Valley in the coming weeks, we ask that you do not purchase illegal fireworks sold by vendors outside of our area for use here. If you plan to use fireworks at your family celebrations, please only purchase safe and healthy fireworks from local kiosks licensed to operate during the holidays.

All fireworks, including those labeled “safe and healthy,” are a concern in the spring and summer, when the wildfire threat is greatest in southern Nevada. Concerns from neighbors about noise, litter, and the use of illegal fireworks purchased outside the Las Vegas Valley are common. No fireworks of any kind are permitted in Clark County Wetland Park and other local parks, or on public lands in the area including Mount Charleston, Lake Mead and Red Rock Canyon. Officials warn that even approved “safe and healthy” fireworks can cause fires and injuries and should only be used under adult supervision.

In addition to the county, partners in the “You Light It, We Write It” effort include area cities, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and the Nevada Highway Patrol. As part of this effort, the public is encouraged to report complaints of illegal fireworks online at www.ISpyFireworks.com instead of calling 911. Complaints recorded on the ISpy fireworks site are for data collection purposes only – it does not result in a police dispatch. The misuse of 911 to report fireworks complaints, instead of life-threatening emergencies, bogs down local police and the fire dispatch center and can reduce emergency response times. The public can call 311 to report illegal fireworks complaints, but responses are prioritized based on available resources. In 2021, the ISpy site recorded 21,134 complaints from June 28 to July 4, including 13,447 on July 4.

“The 4th of July is one of our busiest nights of the year for accidents and fires,” said Clark County Fire Chief John Steinbeck. “We need the support of the public to keep the celebrations safe and sane, and we also need to remind the public not to call 911 to report complaints about illegal fireworks, because 911 should only be used only to report life-threatening emergencies.”

Officials say the best way to ensure fireworks aren’t illegal is to buy them from local vendors licensed to sell ‘safe and healthy’ fireworks during the seven-day permitted sale period. days which is June 28th. No fireworks are allowed after midnight on July 4th. Fireworks sold at TNT or Phantom Fireworks kiosks this season have been tested and approved in local jurisdictions to ensure they don’t leak, burn too hot or project too high into the sky. Vending kiosks are inspected during the holidays to ensure they are in compliance. “Safe and healthy” fireworks typically include sparklers and fireworks that remain in a small circular area on the ground and do not explode in mid-air. Illegal fireworks include firecrackers, Roman candles, and sky rockets – anything made of highly combustible materials. Fireworks purchased from vendors located outside of Clark County are likely to be illegal, including those purchased from vendors in Pahrump, Amargosa Valley, and the Moapa Strip of Paiutes.

Residents are encouraged to support the annual “You Light It, We Write It” effort by sharing campaign information with friends and neighbors. Flyers and TV PSAs in English and Spanish are available on the campaign website, along with a list of professional fireworks which is regularly updated as the holidays approach. Residents are also encouraged to support the campaign by sharing content from participating agencies on social media and using the hashtag #youlightitwewriteit. The website offers safety tips for people considering using safe and healthy fireworks. Recommendations include:

  • Be courteous: Let your neighbors know ahead of time if you plan to celebrate with fireworks so the noise doesn’t startle them. Clean up the trash left behind by the fireworks.
  • Be prepared in case of fire. Have a pre-connected garden hose handy.
  • Use fireworks on flat, hard surfaces such as parking lots and cul-de-sacs away from buildings, vehicles, dry brush and bystanders.
  • Place discharged fireworks in a bucket of water overnight to ensure they do not relight.
  • Closely supervise children and pets; maintaining a distance from fireworks that are lit minimizes the risk of injury. Don’t let children light fireworks.
  • Beware of sparks. These can be popular items to give to young children, but they can cause clothing to catch fire and cause serious burns.
  • Coordinate the lighting of the elements so that everyone in the group anticipates when they will be triggered and are not surprised.

Feel the rhythm of Guam’s traditional chamorro dance https://disturbmedia.com/feel-the-rhythm-of-guams-traditional-chamorro-dance/ Sun, 29 May 2022 23:16:20 +0000 https://disturbmedia.com/feel-the-rhythm-of-guams-traditional-chamorro-dance/ As the opening chords of “O Saina” are proudly played on the guitar by a member of a Chamorro dance company, the performers sing to the Chamorro ancestors to bless them, moving their arms gracefully and reverently to the words of the song.

As the opening chords of “O Saina” are proudly played on the guitar by a member of a Chamorro dance company, the performers sing to the Chamorro ancestors to bless them, moving their arms gracefully and reverently to the words of the song. It is a moving performance that is presented at the start of most cultural events in Guam.

The performance of O Saina reminds guests of the indigenous history of the island and frequently features more indigenous dances throughout the evening performed by one of the Pa’a Taotao Tano cultural house coalition groups, or Gumas.

In recent decades, the indigenous dance of the Chamorro people has grown in popularity under the leadership of chiefs Gumas and Guma, known as fafa’na’gue. Dances unique to the Chamorro culture are performed around the world at international dance competitions and showcases, and tourists come to Guam from far and wide to watch the beautiful dance. Without the work of dedicated artists and scholars seeking to reclaim their original culture, indigenous Chamorro dance would not exist today.

Francisco “Frank” Rabon, founder of the dance group Taotao’ Tano, is recognized for the revival of indigenous Chamorro dance. Originally a dancer of Polynesian styles, Rabon was asked to choreograph a presentation that would showcase Guam at the 1985 Festival of Pacific Arts. Rabon was inspired by the idea of ​​Chamorro indigenous identity and experimented with different dance forms, drawing on historical documents and dances from other Pacific islands.

Prior to Rabon’s work, the dances of the ancient Chamorro people were not recorded very well, if at all. Several historical records written by early explorers who traveled to the Marianas vaguely described the dances performed during the 1600s and 1800s. Dances performed by the Chamorros throughout the period of Spanish colonization included the bailan ha’iguas and the bailan pailitu. These dances were accompanied by typical Spanish or Mexican music and songs with Chamorro lyrics.

After the Spanish-American War, when Guam became a colony of the United States, popular dances of the time reflected the Americanization of the island. In the late 1800s, big band music became popular, and Chamorro dancers performed waltz, ragtime, and clapper styles. After World War II, the cha-cha and jitterbug became popular and dances performed during the Spanish period became “traditional” dances.

Rabon studied historical documents to recreate the ancient life of the Chamorros through dance. The dances created by Rabon were unique to the island and formed the basis for transmitting the Chamorro dance to the next generation of dancers. Although Rabon never claimed to authenticate the dances performed before the Chamorros were colonized by Spain and America, he sought to give the Chamorros a sense of identity and pride in their heritage.

Today, there are Gumas who teach Chamorro dance all over the world. They dance in Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, California and Japan. In 2009, the Guam Visitors Bureau launched the Guam Chamorro Dance Academy in Japan to teach interested Japanese people the art of Chamorro dance.

Each year, the coalition of dance groups, Pa’a Taotao’ Tano come together to celebrate their heritage and unique indigenous dance at the Dinana’ Minagof festivals and competitions held several times a year by the Gef Pa’go Chamorro Cultural Village in ‘Inarajan and Pa ‘a Taotao Tano’.

To see a performance of a dozen Gumas in Guam, you can go to the annual village festivals, one of the annual dance competitions, or to Chamorro Village on a Wednesday night for the night market.

Max Verstappen doesn’t expect a repeat of the DRS problems he faced in Spain as he believes Red Bull ‘now understands the problem’.

Verstappen faced an uphill struggle in his battle against George Russell at Barcelona due to his RB18’s drag reduction system suffering intermittent failures.

Although ultimately victorious, the Dutchman was frustrated throughout the issue, a problem he also suffered in qualifying.

As Red Bull addressed the matter in the meantime, Verstappen said: “[We are running] the same wing and I expect it to be resolved – I hope.

“Fortunately here the DRS is not so important but I think we have understood [the problem] and hopefully we’ve got the fixes in place.”

F1 needs DRS

With the latest generation of F1 machinery improving the ability of cars to follow each other closely, questions have been raised as to whether the sport still needs DRS.

The defending champion, however, feels his struggles to pass Russell at Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya underscored the fact that the fixture is here to stay for now.

“If it’s not there anymore, then we’re just riding on trains, so I think I’ve demonstrated that it’s really frustrating,” Verstappen added.

“We need DRS at the moment with the cars. We can follow a little easier but once you’re behind I think the drag is a little less important.

“You don’t have that suction effect like last year, but you still need the DRS to be able to get into the first corner.”
