Tribal Casinos to Remain Open Despite Increased COVID Cases

Pandemic Continues, Tribal Casinos Reduce Capacity


Although the end of the COVID-19 pandemic is in sight, the numbers continue to rise. As a response, tribal casinos have elected to remain open and implement a range of safety protocols.


Coronavirus Numbers Continue to Rise


All across the world today, the pandemic numbers continue to rise due to a combination of new variant mutations and the winter weather naturally increasing the proliferation of such a disease. Washington is not immune to the rising cases of the global pestilence, and tribal governments have been keen to stress both how seriously they take the situation and the countermeasures that have been enacted to reduce the risk.


In addition to seasonal changes, a negative development that continues to drive up cases in more and more countries is the new mutations that appear to make the virus more infectious.


Increasing Casino Safety


Taking account of the situation, tribal casinos in Washington have implemented safety measures to help protect members of staff, visiting guests, and local communities. For the time being, such betting establishments are remaining open, but are operating at a reduced capacity to make social distancing easier to follow, and thereby cutting the risk.


While tribal casinos are vital for generating funds used to provide healthcare, education, and other essential government spending, a compromise between outright closures (which would also reduce the available money for combating COVID-19) and business as usual (which would entail an unacceptable degree of risk to health) is deemed to be the most prudent approach.


Fears over playing in person and the lockdowns have helped drive player interest in online casinos to new highs. With welcome promos at Miami Club Casinos</a> many players have, at least temporarily, shifted to taking advantage of online bonuses and visiting internet casinos rather than real-world establishments.


Each tribe is operating its own independent set of policies on specific steps to take to try and reduce COVID-19 cases. In addition to reduced capacity, mask-wearing is a common requirement aimed at cutting infection risks (a particular problem with this disease as the symptoms can vary all the way from fatally severe to none whatsoever).


Casino ventilation has been increased to try and diminish the extra risk of being indoors, with extra cleaning enacted on a similar basis. Dining practices have been updated likewise, and members of staff are routinely checked to ensure they are not suffering high temperatures (one of the main symptoms of the disease).


The Decision to Stay Open


Closures did occur during the initial arrival of COVID-19, in March 2020, when there was a greater degree of uncertainty regarding how the disease was spread and the risks incurred by various activities and behaviors.


State-wide, Washington cases are increasing significantly but no spikes have been associated with tribal casinos. The tribes have indicated they will continue to modify their policies in accordance with the situation as it changes.


The combination of more free time and less to do in the real world has seen many casino players shift to online establishments, some with extensive slots ranges, others with quick payouts and all with convenient access and no risk of catching COVID-19.


Challenging Times for Casinos


The COVID-19 pandemic has been a huge challenge across the board, from healthcare to education, provision of public services to private enterprise. Some sectors have fared better than others, particularly those that function smoothly with remote working.


For brick and mortar casinos, however, it’s been a particularly challenging time. Hundreds of tribal casinos closed during the summer months, leading to job losses across rural America. With resources stretched, a combination of job cuts and rising healthcare needs made it a difficult time for the tribes. While casino closures at the time were considered necessary, it undoubtedly led to reduced revenue and (financially) impeded the capacity of tribes to fight back against the pandemic.


Thousands of jobs were lost across the country, from Michigan and Indiana when sites owned by the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians closed, to Connecticut when the same happened with the Mashantucket Pequot Nation. It’s worth noting this wasn’t only a tribal situation, the majority (seven out of 10) of workers in tribal casinos are non-Native American. In common with other sectors, casino workers losing jobs simply compounds the healthcare crisis. Just as governments lose funding due to decreased revenues, individuals have been struggling a lot with the stress of trying to make ends meet when for some people work has vanished.


Vaccines versus Mutations


Entering 2021, developments regarding the pandemic are both positive and negative. The latter days of 2020 saw  a number of new mutations that appear to significantly increase the chances of infection but, at the same time, effective vaccines from multiple different sources are coming on stream, with the United States the leading major Western nation by total shots (at the time of writing).


This does make the situation going forward somewhat uncertain, but with room for optimism. Rolling out vaccines will take time, yet the prospect of hope will be a great relief to many people. So far, it seems the new mutations are still neutered by the vaccines, and as long as that remains the case it’s simply a matter of letting the vaccinations do their work. The pandemic has turned the world upside down, but help is on the way.


Things have been tough all round with the COVID-19 global pandemic. The world isn’t out of it yet, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Apple will struggle to deliver iPad Pro 12.9 “, but there is no crisis in Norway

After Apple announced its two new M1 computers, the iMac and iPad Pro, it has been interesting to follow the delivery time.

Apple expects to lose at least NOK 33 billion due to production challenges

Because it’s the only way to keep up with the popularity of Apple’s products, especially since they do not long disclose the number of sales in quarterly reports.

For those of you who really want an iPad Pro M1, the order is probably long overdue, and for the others of you who may be waiting, it does not seem to be a crisis.

The iMac M1 can be delivered from relatively 3 to 4 weeks for the most affordable, to 5 to 6 weeks for the two more expensive basic models.

Sold out, but no crisis

Now Bloomberg reports that Apple has problems producing enough miniLED panels for the largest model, which is the only one with Liquid Retina XDR. The newspaper reported even before the announcement, or rather in April, that it would be challenging for Apple to produce enough, and they got it right.

The surprising thing is that it still does not take more than 4 to 6 weeks to deliver iPad Pr 12.9 in Norway, and only days before the first trays land in the mailbox of the first customers.

Apple has been more sold out with other products

There has often been a much longer waiting time for other products, but it is clear: if you want one right away, up to 6 weeks can be long enough.

Apple’s production partners are simply struggling to produce enough panels because they are more advanced, a problem that will be solved, but which will hardly be solved this year.

Apple’s smallest iPad Pro, 11 inches, has a delivery time of 2 to 3 weeks.

Super luxury Mercedes-Maybach S 680 4Matic officially. Its V12 has 450 kW and an ATV at the base

After all, you can also buy the new Mercedes S-Class with a twelve-cylinder engine. However, you must choose the top Maybach, whose V12 has 450 kW without the help of an electric motor.

Twelve-cylinder engines are in danger of extinction at a time of increasingly stringent emission standards, especially in the range of luxury limousines, which are often converted to smaller, eight-cylinder units. A similar step threatened the current Mercedes S-Class, however the predecessor said goodbye to the twelve-cylinder, but in the end the manufacturer decided otherwise. And so now we can officially welcome the twelve-cylinder Mercedes-Maybach S 680 4Matic, which will also be sold in Europe.

The carmaker launched the sale of the new S-Klasse in the luxury version of Maybach on the first markets, together with which it officially confirmed the arrival of the twelve-cylinder variant, which has been vividly speculated about in recent weeks. And it also revealed the basic parameters.

Under the hood of the Mercedes-Maybach S 680 4Matic, therefore, the well-known, double-supercharged twelve-cylinder fork with a volume of 5980 cm works.3, with internal designation M279. In the case of the novelty, it will be tuned to 450 kW at 5250-5500 rpm, the torque will peak at 900 Nm, which will be available between 2000-4000 rpm.

Compared to the current derivative, the engine will be slightly worse, probably due to emission standards. The previous Mercedes-Maybach S 650 provided up to 463 kW and 1,000 Nm. This time, however, for the first time, the twelve-cylinder will be paired with all-wheel drive as standard. At a time of strict emission rules, the good news is that it can do without a mildhybrid device, with an auxiliary electric motor.

The Mercedes-Maybach S 680 4Matic will also be sold in Europe. We do not know the Czech prices yet, however, in the home Germany it will come to a base of 217,324 euros, which is about 5.5 million crowns. By the way, the Mercedes-Maybach S 580 4Matic with a 370 kW mildhybrid eight-cylinder in our western neighbors costs from EUR 164,565 (approx. 4.2 million crowns). This eight-cylinder can also be purchased for an “ordinary” S-class derivative.

Maybach version of the S-Class In addition to its distinctive appearance, it differs primarily by the extended wheelbase, which is 18 centimeters longer than the extended version of the S-Class. In the rear, only a pair of seats with heating and ventilation appears, while the front passenger seat can be moved significantly forward, to free up even more space in the rear.

Coronavirus in Germany: RKI reports as few new infections as at the beginning of March – and an incidence below 80 – knowledge

The health authorities in Germany reported 4209 new corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day. This is evident from the figures from Tuesday morning, which reflect the status of the RKI case numbers page from 8:11 a.m. For comparison: a week ago the value was 6125 infections, However, the number of cases from Brandenburg was missing in the data set. The RKI announced the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants reported within seven days on Tuesday morning nationwide 79.5 (Previous day: 83.1; previous week: 115.4).

Due to the past Ascension weekend, when interpreting the number of cases, it should be noted that fewer people see a doctor on public holidays and bridging days. As a result, fewer samples are taken and fewer laboratory tests are carried out, according to the RKI’s management report on Monday. “This means that fewer pathogens are reported to the responsible health authorities.”

Germany-wide were the information according to within 24 hours 221 new deaths recorded. A week ago there were 283 dead.

The RKI has counted a total of 3,603,055 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic. The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, however, since many infections are not recognized. The number of people who died with or with the involvement of a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 is now given as 86,381.

The nationwide seven-day R-value was 0.77 according to the RKI management report from Monday evening (Previous day: 0.82). This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 77 more people. The R-value represents the occurrence of the infection 8 to 16 days ago. If it is below 1 for a longer period of time, the infection process subsides; if it is consistently higher, the number of cases increases. (dpa)

FC Schaffhausen must continue to hope for a license


The Swiss news agency Keystone-SDA announced on Tuesday that the FCS had received a license. However, neither Roland Klein, owner of FC Schaffhausen, nor the Swiss Football League (SFL) could confirm this. The original message:

FC Schaffhausen has received the license for the 2021/22 season in the Challenge League in the second instance from the Appeals Committee of the Swiss Football League (SFL). This is reported by the Keystone-SDA news agency. The FCS was initially denied the right to play for financial and infrastructural reasons, primarily because of unresolved questions regarding rent in the Schaffhausen stadium. A corresponding arbitration procedure between the stadium lessor and FC Schaffhausen is pending.

The other 19 clubs in the two top Swiss leagues had received the license in the first instance – as did Yverdon-Sport, the designated promoter from the Promotion League. (rd)
