The US election isn’t over yet. Joe Biden has newly extended his lead with a victory in Pennsylvania, Georgia will be key for him. After an earlier postponement, the popular beauty contest is back - watch the online broadcast on Monday! Moreover, a new Covid portal has gone online. Dominik Feri and his team were able to put the whole project together in mere 14 days.
Covid portal created in 2 weeks
A new Covid portal was launched tonight to bring the public all necessary information regarding the pandemic and government regulations. Its creation was initiated by the opposition deputy Dominik Feri (TOP 09); he succeeded in his effort three quarters of a year since the first infected person in the Czech Republic. Together with a group of volunteers, he was able to design the portal, program it and fill it with content within 14 days.
The web presents up to three hundred life situations in which people may not be certain how to comply with government measures. The web portal will be available in Czech and English for the time being, but other languages will be added in time - Vietnamese, Russian and German.
"It completely ruined my non-working life for 14 days,"
admitted MEP Dominik Feri.
Biden is close to a victory
The election of the American president is still undecided, the United States keep counting the ballots. However, Joe Biden is leading in key states and it looks like these elections will be his for the taking. The Democratic candidate extended his lead with a victory in Pennsylvania, Georgia and Nevada, thereby reaching the 270 electoral votes needed for victory. Pennsylvania, with its 20 votes, could be the state that pushes Biden across the border.
In Georgia, Biden had a small but growing lead: 4,000 votes since Friday night. Joe Biden now has 264 electoral votes, including 11 for Arizona. With that number, he could afford to lose in certain states. Trump has 214 votes. Pennsylvania and Georgia are key to his re-election.
John Legend supports Bidena
Singer John Legend released the cover of "Georgia On My Mind" minutes after Biden took the lead over Trump. Legend recorded a two-minute clip on Twitter singing Hoagy Carmichael's 1930 song, which was later popularized by various artists, especially Ray Charles, whose version became the official Georgian state song in 1979.
His wife, Chrissy Teigen, revealed that the singer had waited five hours before he could share the song with a comment saying "I love you Georgia".
Real estate in Britain is the most expensive since 2016
Real estate prices in the United Kingdom have risen the most since 2016. In October alone, average house prices rose by 7.5% compared to the previous year to a record average of £ 250,457, which is around 6.5 million crowns. In just a month, the prices rose by 0.3%. The real estate market has long resisted the economic downturn. Due to the situation with the coronavirus pandemic, city dwellers have been trying to move out of city centers. The government is currently doing its best to support the citizens and temporarily offers residents tax relief on purchases and loans for young buyers. Lockdown has been imposed in the UK since Thursday, but house tours aren’t banned, and real estate agents thus remain open to business.
"While government support measures have undoubtedly helped delay the expected downturn in the housing market, they will not continue indefinitely,"
said Russell Galley, CEO of Halifax.
