МОН подовжило прийом до закладів профосвіти до жовтня

Подавати документи до закладів професійно-технічної освіти можна до 1 жовтня. Про це йдеться в листі, який Міністерство освіти і науки розіслало регіональним управлінням освіти і науки.

Таке рішення МОН пояснює бажанням забезпечити «рівне право громадян на здобуття професійної (професійно-технічної) освіти відповідно до своїх здібностей», а також виконання відповідними закладами регіонального та державного замовлення на підготовку фахівців.

Наразі, повідомляють у МОН, до закладі професійно-технічної освіти на бюджет вже вступили понад 60 тисяч осіб.

Подача документів до вищих навчальних закладів завершилася 26 липня.

Minnesota state lawmaker Ilhan Omar is one step closer to making history as the first refugee from the African continent – and the second Muslim American woman – elected to the U.S. Congress.

Key Midwestern US States Pick Candidates for November Election

The races for U.S. political offices became further defined Tuesday with the latest round of primary elections setting up congressional battles in the battleground states of Wisconsin and Minnesota.

In Wisconsin, Republicans chose state lawmaker Leah Vukmir to go up against Democratic Senator Tammy Baldwin, who is trying to earn a second term in office.

Vukmir has the support of President Donald Trump, who just ahead of Tuesday’s primaries also voiced approval for Governor Scott Walker in his re-election campaign. Democrat Tony Evers won the Democratic primary to face Walker in November.

Republican voters chose Bryan Steil, a former aide to House Speaker Paul Ryan, as their candidate to replace Ryan when he retires at the end of the current term. Steil will face Democratic candidate Randy Bryce to represent the congressional district in a suburb of Milwaukee.

Democrats seem to be particularly energized in Wisconsin, where Trump was the first Republican presidential candidate to win in 32 years, although by one percentage point, in the 2016 elections.

In the November election, all 435 House of Representatives seats, 35 of 100 Senate seats, and 36 of 50 governors’ offices will be up for election. Democrats must win 23 seats in the House and two seats in the Senate to gain control of those chambers.

In Minnesota, former Governor Tim Pawlenty, who has been critical of Trump, saw his campaign to reclaim his old job end Tuesday as the one-time favorite in the race lost the Republican primary to county commissioner Jeff Johnson. Democrats chose Congressman Tim Walz as their candidate for governor.

Rep. Keith Ellison won the Democratic nomination for Minnesota’s attorney general on Tuesday after his campaign was rocked by recent allegations of domestic violence.

Ellison is the first Muslim elected to Congress, and in the race to fill the seat he is vacating Democrats picked state representative Ilhan Omar, the nation’s first Somali-American legislator as their candidate. She will go up against Republican Jennifer Zielinski for a seat Democrats have held since 1960.

Senator Tina Smith won the Democratic primary to seek her first full term after taking office to replace fellow Democrat Al Franked who resigned in December amid multiple allegations of unwanted sexual touching. Smith will face Republican state senator Karin Housley.

Primary contests were also held in the heavily Democratic northeastern states of Vermont and Connecticut.

Democrats selected Christine Hallquist as their nominee for governor in Vermont as he tries to become the nation’s first transgender governor. She will face Republican incumbent Phil Scott, who has strong support in his re-election bid.

And Sen. Bernie Sanders, who ran for president in 2016, won the Democratic primary for his seat, but is expected to turn down that nomination and continue as an independent.

З початку року на кір захворіло майже 29 тисяч людей – МОЗ

З початку 2018 року в Міністерстві охорони здоров’я зафіксували 28 889 випадків захворювання на кір. Серед них – понад 17 тисяч дітей.

За даними МОЗ, найбільше хворих було у Львівській області – 5,6 тисяч осіб. Крім того, з початку року від ускладнень кору померло 13 людей, з них дев’ятеро – діти.

МОЗ нагадує, що дітей треба вакцинувати від кору згідно у віці одного або шести років. Щеплення для дітей до 18 років безкоштовне.

Також раніше в міністерстві повідомляли про запровадження обов’язкової безкоштовної вакцинації від кору для дорослих, що належать до груп ризику. Серед них – студентство, працівники медичних закладів (медики та немедичний персонал), освітніх закладів та силових структур.

Кір – небезпечне і дуже заразне захворювання, ліків від якого не існує, а ускладнення цієї хвороби можуть мати смертельні наслідки. Діти, які не отримали профілактичне щеплення, перебувають у зоні ризику.

Кір легко передається від людини до людини, поширюється при кашлі, тісних особистих контактах. Вірус залишається активним і живе в повітрі або на інфікованих поверхнях протягом двох годин. Спочатку хворий відчуває ознаки звичайної застуди: нежить, температуру, кашель, приблизно через тиждень з’являється висип (спочатку на голові, далі – на верхній та нижній частинах тулуба). Серед ускладнень, які викликає кір – ураження нервової системи (енцефаліт), пневмонія, отит, втрата зору.

Attorney for Stormy Daniels Discusses Policy Views as He Weighs 2020 Bid

Michael Avenatti, the attorney taking on President Donald Trump on behalf of adult film star Stormy Daniels, offered some details on his policy views Tuesday as he weighs an outsider Democratic bid for the White House.

Fresh off a visit to early-voting Iowa, Avenatti said he would release more information over time, but said “people want to know how I stand on the issues at 20,000 feet.”

In a new policy document, Avenatti said he supports a “basic Medicare plan for all Americans,” with an option to purchase additional coverage, and backed a path to citizenship for the young immigrants known as Dreamers. He also wants to see a national paid family leave program.

Marijuana should be decriminalized at the federal level, so-called assault weapons should be banned and the United States should re-join the Paris climate accord, according to Avenatti.

Those positions generally align Avenatti with the left flank of potential 2020 Democratic presidential prospects, but he is more moderate on some of the issues. On the federal government’s chief immigration enforcement agency, Avenatti said: “We should not eliminate ICE but we must change the way ICE carries out enforcement.”

Some Democrats have gone further. Senator Kristen Gillibrand told CNN recently that “You should get rid of it, start over, reimagine it and build something that actually works.” And Senator Kamala Harris of California has said the government “maybe” or “probably” should “start from scratch” on an immigration enforcement agency.

Avenatti is a self-styled provocateur who has gained national attention for representing Daniels in her lawsuit against Trump following an alleged 2006 affair, which the president denies. For months, he’s been a fixture on cable news shows, taunting Trump in interviews and baiting him and his lawyers in tweets. Avenatti also has a blistering Twitter feed and a knack for a catchy slogan.

He pledged that should he run, he will not take corporate PAC money — putting him in line with a number of potential 2020 prospects.

Avenatti is more general on some issues in the brief outline, saying he wants an economic plan that “delivers good quality jobs” and that college must be “more affordable for all Americans.” He promised a detailed infrastructure plan called the “Real Deal.”

On trade, he said America must “be aggressive in dealing with countries that have gamed the system — but smart about how we fight back to avoid inflicting unnecessary harm on American workers and farmers.” And on international relations, he said the United States must “negotiate denuclearization agreements with North Korea and Iran.”

Avenatti said he is studying the issues and consulting experts and will be releasing more information, including a “detailed economic infrastructure plan in the coming weeks.”

The document also serves as a statement of principle for the attorney who has never run for office. It stresses his support for all Americans “regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or identity.” He fully backs unions and said teachers need more financial support, according to the document.

Poll: Americans Split on Whether Trump Guilty of Wrongdoing in Connection With Russia

A new Quinnipiac University poll shows almost half of all Americans believe U.S. President Donald Trump is guilty of wrongdoing in connection with Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Forty-two-percent said they believed he committed wrongful acts, while 43 percent said he did not.

When asked if it is ever acceptable for a presidential campaign to get information on a political opponent from hostile foreign power, 79 percent said it was “never acceptable,” while 12 percent said it was acceptable.

More than half of American voters, 51 percent, believe special counsel Robert Mueller is conducting a fair investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 elections, as opposed to 33 percent who felt Mueller is not.

Fifty-nine percent of voters said they disliked Trump as a person, while 31 percent said they did not.

The poll also showed that 58 percent felt the Trump administration is not doing enough to help middle class Americans as opposed to 38 percent who believed he is.

Fifty-nine percent felt Trump does not treat people of color with the same amount of respect he shows white people, while 39 percent did treat people of color with the same amount of respect.

The nationwide poll was conducted August 9-13.

Суд призначив судово-медичне обстеження екс-заступнику командира «Торнадо»

Слідчий суддя Ірпінського міського суду в Київській області призначив невідкладне судово-медичне обстеження колишньому заступнику голови роти патрульної служби міліції особливого призначення «Торнадо» Миколі Цукурі.

Це рішення суд ухвалив на прохання адвоката Цукури. Той стверджує, що його підзахисного побили. Таким чином суд частково задовольнив заяву адвоката про нібито незаконне перебування Цукури в місцях позбавлення волі.

Раніше Генеральна прокуратура звинуватила колишніх бійців роти «Торнадо», яких утримують в Лук’янівському СІЗО, в масових заворушеннях, погрозах вбивством і вимаганні. У сприянні затриманим також звинуватили двох працівників слідчого ізолятора.

У квітні 2017 року Оболонський районний суд Києва засудив до різних термінів позбавлення волі 12 колишніх бійців колишньої спецроти МВС «Торнадо» за звинуваченням у скоєнні тяжких злочинів у зоні бойових дій на Донбасі. Рішення було оскаржене.

More Primary Elections Underway in US

Primary elections were underway Tuesday in Wisconsin and Minnesota, two Upper Midwestern U.S. states where Democrats hoped to regain strength that has been eroded by President Donald Trump’s popularity among working-class voters.

Democrats seem to be particularly energized in Wisconsin, where Trump was the first Republican presidential candidate to win in 32 years, although by 1 percentage point, in the 2016 elections. Eight Democratic candidates, led by state schools superintendent Tony Evers, are vying for the chance to oppose Republican governor Scott Walker in the November mid-term elections.

In Wisconsin’s Senate primaries, Republicans are trying to deny Democratic senator Tammy Baldwin a second term in office. The effort is being led by two Trump supporters, former Marine Kevin Nicholson and state lawmaker Leah Vukmir.

Union organizer Randy Bryce and educator Cathy Myers, both Democrats, are locked in a bitter fight to win the seat of retiring Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan.

In Minnesota, where Trump lost by less than 3 percentage points and where a Republican presidential contender has not won since 1972, voters will choose candidates for governor, the Senate and the House.

Democratic senator Tina Smith is on Tuesday’s ballot as she seeks her first full term. She replaced fellow Democrat Al Franken, who resigned in December amid multiple allegations of unwanted sexual touching. Smith faces Democrat Richard Painter, a former ethics lawyer for President George W. Bush.

Three progressive women are leading the race to replace Democratic Representative Keith Ellison – the first Muslim elected to Congress – in the primary for Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District. They are: state senator Patricia Torres Ray, the first Latina in the Minnesota Senate, former Minnesota House representative Margaret Anderson Kelliher, the second woman to serve as Minnesota House Speaker, and the nation’s first Somali-American legislator, freshman state representative Ilhan Omar.

Former two-term governor Tim Pawlenty is the leading Republican candidate in the race to replace outgoing Democratic governor Mark Dayton.

The Democratic field for governor features U.S. Congressman Tim Walz, state Representative Erin Murphy and Attorney General Lori Swanson.

Primary contests are also being held in the heavily Democratic northeastern states of Vermont and Connecticut.   

Democratic socialist Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who has not ruled out a second run for the presidency in 2020, is seeking a third term as senator.

In Connecticut, five Republicans and two Democrats are battling to replace outgoing Democratic governor Dan Malloy.
