Local leaders clearing doubts on the reopening of businesses
After the announcement of the reopening of the economy, many questions are arising in people's minds. All these questions are answered by Governor Laura Kelly on which businesses can open and which cannot. In her address on Thursday night, Gov. Kelly, a question was posed to Eyewitness News concerning the reopening of restaurants Monday while bars have to stay closed for the next two weeks(until May 18) to reopen. The big question: What's the difference between a bar and grill and a grill and bar if both establishments serve food and alcohol?
Sedgwick County commissioner Pete Meitzner says he cleared the doubts on which establishment among bars and restaurants can reopen. "If it's a restaurant that is a bar also, as long as it's serving food, in what we all know, then it's eligible to be open Monday." According to Meitzner, the bars which serve only alcohol, which doesn't offer food (pretzels and peanuts don't count), will have to remain closed. He advises all the businesses to follow social distancing guidelines to keep the employees and customers/clients safe.

It is a part of the Air Force Salutes program to thank Louisiana's medical professionals battling the coronavirus disease, which has claimed nearly 2,000 lives in the state and hospitalized hundreds of others. During this flyover, an aircraft part fell off one of the two B-52 bombers, which were a part of the Air Force Salute program. No one got injured in this incident. U.S. Air Force Capt. Christopher Sullivan said that an access hatch fell off one of the bombers around 10:30 a.m., which landed on private property. He added that a local person identified the part and notified authorities, and later, Air Force retrieved the piece. According to Sullivan, the missing panel had not caused any effect on the performance of the aircraft, and the plane returned safely after performing a flyover above Baton Rouge. A safety investigation will be done amide this incident.
The two F-15 fighter jets and two B-52 Stratofortress bombers started from the airbase in Belle Chasse around 9:30 a.m. The pilots were from the Barksdale Air Force Base in Bossier Parish.

La web de Assassin's Creed Valhalla escondía un secreto que ya ha sido desvelado | SomosXbox - SomosXbox
La web de Assassin's Creed Valhalla escondía un secreto que ya ha sido desvelado gracias a un usuario de Twitter de lo más avispado
La web de Assassin’s Creed Valhalla escondía un secreto que ya ha sido desvelado gracias a un usuario de lo más avispado. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla se presentó hace unos pocos días, superando en interés a Assassin’s Creed Odyssey y citándonos para el 7 de mayo para el evento de Xbox Series X, en el que se mostrará gameplay del juego. El nuevo título de la saga nos llevará a la época vikinga y por supuesto habrá elementos de la mitología. Eso sí, tampoco esperemos que los dioses estén presentes en todo momento o que el trato a la mitología nórdica sea uno de los temas principales en Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, seguramente lo que veremos potenciado y recreado con todo detalle sea la cultura vikinga, una que utilizaba runas y un lenguaje de lo más extraño para expresarse. Justamente una serie de runas era lo que se escondía en la web del juego. La web de Assassin’s Creed Valhalla escondía un secreto desvelado en Twitter por LaRedDeErudito, que se ha currado un hilo en el que podemos ver el paso a paso de su deducción. Todo comienza con una extraña runa en la web oficial: Investigando los símbolos y traduciéndolos con la ayuda de otro usuario nativo. Ambos descubrieron que se trataba de un verso de un famoso poema nórdico dedicado a Odin, el padre de todo, un dios que parece hacer acto de presencia en el mismo tráiler del juego. El verso de ese poema se traduce como «Las vacas mueren, los hermanos mueren, así que uno mismo debe morir de la misma manera. Pero sé una cosa que nunca muere, el juicio de cada hombre muerto». Según el propio usuario, ese poema haría referencia a algo con lo que los desarrolladores han insistido y es en que nuestras acciones tendrán consecuencias. Nuestro asentamiento, los favores que hagamos y todos nuestros hitos serán lo que nos juzgue después de la muerte. It says as follows:"Deyr fé, deyja frændr, deyr sjálfr it sama. ek veit einn at aldrei deyr, dómr um dauðan hvern."In English:"Cows die, kinsmen die, so must die oneself the same. But I know one thing that never dies, each dead man's judgement"#AssassinsCreedValhallapic.twitter.com/RgR2wdDPiN — Cristophorus (@LaRedDeErudito) May 2, 2020 Este descubrimiento ha sido compartido por el propio director del juego Ashraf Ismail, alabando sus dotes de investigación y deducción, así que seguramente no iba mal encaminado.

Un projet de loi prorogeant lurgence sanitaire à compter du 24 mai présenté par le ministre de la Santé, a été adopté ce samedi en Conseil des ministres. Ce projet de loi, qui sera examiné à partir de lundi par le Parlement, juge « prématurée » la levée de lurgence sanitaire car « les risques de reprise épidémique » étant « avérés en cas dinterruption soudaine des mesures en cours ». Le texte, qui comporte sept articles, vise à « conforter le cadre juridique » et l’ »élargir » pour « y intégrer les enjeux du déconfinement », qui doit débuter le 11 mai, a indiqué le ministre de la Santé Olivier Véran, lors dun point de presse à lissue du Conseil des ministres. Le texte précise notamment les conditions de quarantaine des personnes arrivant en France et atteintes du virus. Il porte aussi sur la mise en oeuvre dun « système dinformation » concernant les personnes malades et leur entourage pour une durée maximale dun an. Selon le ministre de la Santé, la quarantaine et lisolement des personnes ne sera obligatoire que pour celles arrivant sur le territoire national. Mais il ne le sera pas pour les personnes fragiles, comme proposé auparavant. Revenant sur le système dinformation destiné à identifier des personnes infectées ou susceptibles de lêtre, « il sagira de collecter des données dordre non médical mais aussi dordre médical » avec plusieurs étapes distinctes, a expliqué Olivier Véran, précisant que ces données ne seront pas récoltées pour lapplication StopCovid qui « ne sera pas opérationnelle le 11 mai ».
