Dosluhující americký prezident Donald Trump

The incumbent US president is once again stirring stuff up and escalating the situation. The most populous city in Australia, on the contrary, has zero interest in drama and reacts super fast to any COVID-19 outbreak. And did you know that a Nintendo theme park will open next year?

The 74-year-old statesman shocked with his Tweet again. His statement on the topic of cyber attacks was aimed directly against his close colleagues. Not only did the US president downplay these attacks, but he also questioned the perpetrator of these incidents, which violated internal security.

"The Cyber Hack is far greater in the Fake News Media than in actuality. Russia, Russia, Russia is the priority chant when anything happens because Lamestream is, for mostly financial reasons, petrified of discussing the possibility that it may be China (it may!),"

the incumbent president wrote on Twitter. His statement, downplaying Russia's guilt, is in direct conflict with the statements of his colleagues. Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo, for example, said that there was evidence it was the Russians that had engaged in this activity in an interview on Friday. This was also confirmed by Republican Senator Mitt Romney.

The Czech Republic is facing another spike in the COVID-19 epidemic. There were 5,281 new confirmed cases on Saturday - more than 25 percent of the tests performed that day. Moreover, it was the third day in a row when the risk index score of the DOG system was over 75, indicating level 5. The Minister of the Interior, Jan Hamáček, said that he expects the transition to the highest risk level in nearby future. The question apparently isn't if, but when. The government could start discussing it tomorrow. Which anti-epidemic measures can still be tightened after the transition from risk level 4 to 5?

People could only meet in groups of two, not six. The temporarily limited capacity of weddings, funerals or services would be reduced from 20 percent to 10. Night curfew would apply from 9 pm instead of the current 11 pm. Outdoor sport activities would also be possible only in two people. Hairdressers and solariums would most likely also close again. The jury is still out on the closing of stores that were exempted in the 4th level.

Less than a hundred new cases in Australia's most populous city were enough to prompt strict security measures. Sydney was closed and isolated from the rest of the country. With its population of twenty-five million, Australia has had less than 30,000 cases of COVID-19 this year, which is more than twenty times less than the Czech Republic.

The Prime Minister of Queensland, Annastacia Palaszczuk, said openly at the press conference:

"If you're from Sydney, now is not the time to travel to Queensland."

Western Australia, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania have also reinstated hard border closure and a fortnightly quarantine. About a quarter of a million people in the suburbs of Sydney, where the virus had begun to spread, were placed under very strict quarantine measures until Christmas Day. The rest of Australia's most populous city operates on a restricted basis, where a maximum of ten people can gather.

One of the most popular rappers of all time, the 48-year-old Eminem, , shocked his fans. Following the example of the singer Taylor Swift, he released his second album this year - Music to Be Murdered By --- Side B - without previous announcement. He collaborated on the album with his main producer Dr. Dre, and it also features names such as DJ Premier, Sly Pyper and Ty Dolla Sign. The album contains 16 new songs, in which the song Zeus stands out. The American legend uses it to apologize to the singer Rihanna for siding with her former partner Chris Brown in the domestic violence case back in 2009. The video for the single GNAT, which collected almost 10 million views in 2 days, is already available on Youtube.

Regardless of the development of the coronavirus pandemic, the world's first Super Nintendo World will open its doors in February 2021. The amusement park was built in Osaka, Japan. It was originally scheduled to welcome its first visitors this year, but the global situation slightly delayed its opening. It will be a traditional amusement park, where not only children but also their parents will have great fun. Naturally, it features a lot of interactive attractions, restaurants, mascots, or souvenir shops. The basis of the entertainment in the park will be a Power-Up Band bracelet that visitors will be able to connect with a smartphone app. Take a look at the video tour below, in which the creator of the legendary Super Mario, Shiger Miyamoto, will guide you through the park.

That's all from us on this fine Sunday morning. Enjoy your day off and remember the words of Canadian actor Michael J. Fox:

"Family isn't just important. It's everything."
