  1. Thank Heaven ITALY CHEERS FIRST DROP IN CRITICAL PATIENTS ITALY CHEERS FIRST DROP IN CRITICAL PATIENTS / Pandemic-hit Italy cheered Saturday after seeing its number of intensive care cases for the coronavirus that stretched its healthcare system to breaking point drop for the first time. Even some of the most cautious health officials seized on the figures as evidence that the tide might be turning in the deadliest disaster the country has faced since World War II. Civil protection service chief Angelo Borrelli called the drop from 4,068 on Friday to 3,994 on Saturday a big moment in Italy's battle against COVID-19. "This is a very important data point because the figure is decreasing for the first time," Borrelli told reporters. "It is important because it allows our hospitals to breathe."

Current cash on hand amounts to approximately $15.0 M. Cash return to Shareholders The Corporation continued its normal course issuer bid share buyback program (847,721 shares were repurchased in 2019 compared to 446,367 shares in 2018); At the end of 2019, Dynacor increased its quarterly cash dividend payment to its shareholders to CA$0.015 per share (first increased dividend paid in January 2020). STATEMENT OF FINANCIAL POSITION At December 31, 2019, total assets amounted to $74.8 M ($66.1 M as at December 31, 2018). The main impact comes from the inventories: As at December 31, (in million $) 2019 2018 Ore 4.5 1.0 Gold in process 13.5 4.8 Finished goods-Gold dore bars 3.4 - Supplies 0.3 0.4 21.7 6.2 Less: long-term portion {&#A A ; –} other assets (3.4) - Total 18.3 6.2 The increase in ore inventory reflects the continuous efforts of the Corporation to increase its ore purchases at record levels at year end which will allow to continue the production at a high level during the rainy season. The Veta Dorada plant was operating at a level exceeding its nominal capacity of 300 tpd between September 2019 and the recent COVID-19 crisis. The increase of gold in process (including activated carbon) is explained by the December 2019 production which exports were deferred until January 2020 and by the 20% increase in cost per ounce in line with the increase in gold market prices. The finished goods-Gold dore bars relates to the December shipment retained by the Peruvian custom authorities for control procedures. We cannot predict at this time when this shipment will be released by the authorities and therefore, we have classified then under other non-current assets. 2019 OVERVIEW AND HIGHLIGHTS In 2019, the Corporation purchased a record high volume of 105,238 tonnes of ore and processed a record volume of 98,649 tonnes at its Veta Dorada plant compared to 91,512 tonnes in 2018, a 7.8% increase. During the last quarter of 2019, our production exceeded the daily available capacity of 300 tpd maintaining an average of 330 tpd. With a year production of 80,677 ounces of gold the Corporation reached a volume comparable to 2018 and surpassed its second half of 2019 revised guidance of between 44,000 and 46,000 ounces of gold with a production of 46,582 ounces.
  5. Selling debt-free cash-rich DNG = Stupidity Is Unbeatable Insanity reigns supreme. Some clueless "investors" dumped DNG because of Peru and Coronavirus. They are so blind and so short-sighted that they unable to see that DNG is a debt free cash rich company with extremely low operating costs and a proven business model that has been generating profits for many consecutive quarters over the last years. On top of this, based on the latest news below, DNG recorded last December the best monthly ore purchase volume and gold production. But again, stupidity is unbeatable. https://stockhouse.com/news/press-releases/2020/01/23/dynacor-boosts-its-purchases-of-ore-to-a-record-high-in-2019 "In December, the Corporation recorded its best monthly ore purchase volume and gold production, with purchases of 11,306 tonnes and a production of 8,815 ounces of gold. December gold production volume was 34.9 % higher than the 2019 year to date monthly average. The Veta-Dorada plant ended 2019 at an all-time high quarterly production level of 330 TPD, processing a total of 98,649 tonnes of gold ore compared to 91,512 tonnes in 2018 an increase of 7.8%. The total volume of ore purchased in 2019 amounted to 105,238 tonnes compared to 90,977 in 2018, an increase of 15.7%. At the end of 2019, the Corporation had accumulated non-exported production of approximately 8,500 ounces, including a shipment of 2,650 ounces, which was, and is still retained for control procedures by the Peruvian Customs authorities (see press releases 2019-12-27, and 2020-01-16). Exportations have resumed in January 2020." > stockhouse

  10. You'd think the Courts would have noticed?? F--- FISA Courts More traitorous "Obama judges" perhaps Audit: FBI May Have Obtained FISA Warrants Using Inaccurate, Nonexistent Supporting Docs Michael Horowitz, the DOJ inspector general (IG), noted in an audit made public on Tuesday that the FBI failed to produce the documents it allegedly used to back claims in four of the 29 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications it reviewed. FBI agents either lost the supporting documents for the four FISA applications, or they did not know “if they ever existed,” the office of the inspector general (OIG) found. The IG office also said it “identified apparent errors or inadequately supported facts in all of the [remaining] 25 applications.” On average, Horowitz found 20 errors in each of the applications “with a high of approximately 65 issues in one application and less than 5 issues in another application,” the audit noted. Horowitz’s recent findings come after his office found “at least 17 significant errors and omissions” in the Carter Page FISA application that enabled the Russian collusion hoax investigation into Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016, known as operation “Crossfire Hurricane.” In the new FISA audit, the IG reviewed “a judgmentally selected sample of 29 applications” submitted by eight FBI field offices between October 2014 and September 2019 to assess whether the agency complied with its Woods Procedures. ===== Somebody needs to get reamed for these abuses

  12. Ha. You got the top of page with your comment again, Col.! There's a lack of masks, even for Govt's I think. Tunisia 'robocop' enforces coronavirus lockdown AFP•April 3, 2020 A Tunisian police robot patrols the streets of the capital Tunis to enforce a nationwide lockdown imposed by the authorities in their fight against coronavirus (AFP Photo/FETHI BELAID) Tunis (AFP) - Tunisia's interior ministry has deployed a police robot to patrol the streets of the capital and enforce a lockdown imposed last month as the country battles the spread of coronavirus. Known as PGuard, the 'robocop' is remotely operated and equipped with infrared and thermal imaging cameras, in addition to a sound and light alarm system. Less weaponized than the Robot villains In images and a soundtrack posted on the interior ministry's website last month, PGuard calls out to suspected violators of the lockdown: "What are you doing? Show me your ID. You don't know there's a lockdown?" Tunisia has been under night-time curfew since March 17 and authorities imposed stricter lockdown orders from March 22. Since March 2, 14 people have died from coronavirus in Tunisia where 455 confirmed cases have tested positive for the disease. The robot's Tunisian creator Anis Sahbani told AFP the machine was first produced in 2015 essentially to carry out security patrols and it also operates autonomously through artificial intelligence. The robot, built by Sahbani's Enova Robotics firm, costs between 100,000-130,000 euros ($100,000-$140,000) and has been selling mostly overseas to companies for security uses.
  13. Swe-Dumb ? Sweden's liberal strategy questioned as death toll mounts... STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - A spike in novel coronavirus infections and deaths in Stockholm has raised questions about Sweden’s decision to fight the outbreak without resorting to the lockdowns that have left much of Europe at a standstill. Governments across Europe have closed schools and taken draconian measures to limit exposure to possible carriers with Germany for example enforcing bans on more than two people meeting in public. Among Sweden’s Nordic neighbours, Denmark has closed its borders and shut its schools, as has Norway, while Finland has isolated its main urban region. Yet Swedes are able to go to restaurants, get a haircut and send their children to school even as the number of confirmed cases and deaths have mounted, above all in Stockholm which accounts for more than half the fatalities. An analysis of smartphone location data showed that while visits to public places has fallen steeply in most European countries, Sweden is bucking the trend. But Sweden’s liberal approach, which aims to minimise disruption to social and economic life, is coming under fire as the epidemic spreads in the capital. “We don’t have a choice, we have to close Stockholm right now,” Cecilia Soderberg-Naucler, Professor of Microbial Pathogenesis at the Karolinska Institute, told Reuters. She is one of around 2,300 academics who signed an open letter to the government at the end of last month calling for tougher measures to protect the healthcare system. “We must establish control over the situation, we cannot head in to a situation where we get complete chaos. No one has tried this route, so why should we test it first in Sweden, without informed consent?” she said. Sweden reported 612 new cases on Friday, bringing the total to around 6,000. The death toll has reached 333, with fatalities now running at about 25-30 a day, according to the Swedish Health Agency.

  15. Pass this on. Makes sense why youngsters who are fit and well can also succumb to covid-19 yet some older patients may get away with a mild flu like illness This was sent by a charge nurse who worked at NHS 24. It’s written by his doctor colleague currently working with seriously ill coronavirus patients - and in despair as to why anyone is still socialising. Viral load is the key to how coronavirus affects each person. This explanation is clear and helpful as to why as little social contact as possible is now crucial, gives a clue how to manage it .... the Govt should have explained this at the outset. Why do we need to shut places where people group? Remember this: VIRAL LOAD There will be a lot about this. Why is it important? With this virus, the amount of virus in your blood at first infection directly relates to the severity of the illness you will suffer. This isn’t unusual - HIV management is all about reducing viral load to keep people alive longer. BUT it’s very important in COVID-19. So if you are in, say, a pub or religious building or entertainment venue with 200 people and a large number don’t have symptoms but are shedding, you are breathing in lots of droplets per minute and absorbing a high load of the virus. In a crowded space. They become ill over the next 48 hours. You then three days later wonder why you can’t breathe and end up in hospital. You’d decided because you were young and healthy it wasn’t going to be a problem. Wrong. Fortunately but unfortunately because the elderly are isolating quite well, the initial UK data suggests that all age groups above 20 are almost equally represented in ICUs in England. Most of the cases are in London but the wave is moving outwards. This means that being under 60 and fit and well doesn’t seem to be as protective as we thought. Why? Viral load. This may be skewed simply by the fact that too many Londoners didn’t do as asked and congregated in large groups in confined spaces and got a large initial viral load. They then went home and infected their wider families. Which is why, as London is overwhelmed, we need to shut everything down to save the rest of the UK. We are a week at most behind London. Our sympathies go out to the families affected in London and the critical care teams battling right now to save as many as they can. If I sit with one person and catch this virus, I get a small viral load. My immune system will start to fight it and by the time the virus starts replicating, I’m ready to kill it. No medicines will help this process meaningfully hence there is no “cure” for this virus. All we can do is support you with a ventilator and hope your immune system can catch up fast enough. If I sit in the same room with six people, all shedding I get six times the initial dose. The rise in viral load is faster than my immune system can cope with and it is overrun. I then become critically ill and need me (or someone of my specialty) to fix it instead of just being at home and being ok in the end. THIS BIT IS IMPORTANT: If you are a large family group, remember that by being ill and in the same room, you will make each other ill or “more ill”. If you get sick, isolate just yourself to one room and stay there. Don’t all sit in one room coughing. You will increase the viral load for all of you, reducing your survival rate. A family of six people may produce double the droplets of a family of three in the same space. Maths is important. If one of you is symptomatic, assume you are all shedding and make sure you keep some space. Parents are getting it from their kids because no one is going to stop comforting their child (nor should they) so the parent gets a big hit as well as the child. I don’t think that can be helped. REMEMBER: THINK ABOUT VIRAL LOAD It could save your life or your child’s. Coventry and Warwickshire - it’s up to you now. We are preparing for the worst but we are hoping for the best from you. Please help us to help you. Stay home and take this seriously now before we need the army on the streets to remind you. Yes I’m serious.
