Nicest place in Almelo

Almelo actually has a lot of beautiful places, Peter thinks. “Many people like to walk into the Gravenallee, but I often forget that Nijreesbos is actually much more beautiful. The Nijreesbos is much more expressive in terms of the seasons.

Peter sees more beautiful things in our city: “Besides the Nijreesbos, I think there are many more beautiful places in Almelo. There is nature all around us and our city has beautiful architecture. ”

Peter would like the Almeloans to enjoy the beautiful developments that are taking place a little more. “In my opinion, our city is changing significantly at a rapid pace, taking into account the traditional Almelo. Many people who have lived in Almelo for some time sometimes forget this and I think they complain very quickly. ”

There is nothing Peter really misses in Almelo. “I do think that we can make the city center more interesting if the shops and facilities are more clustered. Now and then a shop pops up here and there, but it would be nice if the city were more compact. ”

sources of danger if not properly maintained – Insurance for Pets

Each year have deplored numerous poisonings with carbon monoxide and chimney fires. These can have dramatic consequences. However, we can avoid them with regular maintenance and some usual precautions. We take stock with the professionals.

In 2019, the Haute-Vienne firefighters responded to 257 chimney fires and 15 carbon monoxide poisonings.

According to Public Health France, the vast majority of carbon monoxide poisoning takes place in homes (86%). About three quarters of accidental household poisonings are linked to a connected installation such as a boiler, stove / radiator or water heater.

Sometimes dramatic accidents that could be avoided.

Maintenance of facilities

The maintenance of your boiler regardless of its operating mode must be done at least once a year.

This is extremely important because an unmaintained device is a source of risk. A risk that can be fatal.

The combustion of gases produces waste in the form of grayish or black dust, which may also be visible as a paste with a condensing boiler. However, this powder or this paste will obstruct the gas evacuations of the installation.

« The air flow must be done correctly or else it may simply be reversed and carbon monoxide can then invade the room. Maintenance consists of cleaning the appliance and the ducts so that the gases can escape. correctly ». Explains Cyril Poyrault responsible for the after-sales service of the Maciejowski company.

It is also essential to ensure that the room ventilation in which the boiler is located is done permanently. « Some people block the ventilation grilles on the walls to prevent drafts, it’s extremely dangerous ». Stresses Cyril Poyrault.

On the other hand, carbon monoxide can also emanate from a cooking appliance. The ventilation of the kitchen must therefore also be optimal. The room must have at least two vents, one less than 30 cm from the ground, the other more than 1m80.

The Maciejowsk company located in Limoges and Guéret manages the maintenance of around 6,000 boilers in Creuse and Haute-Vienne. However, technicians regularly observe a risk of imminent danger. « In this case the technician has an obligation to neutralize the boiler, then a very precise procedure is initiated. This kind of problem often happens, on average once a month. » Specifies Cyril Poyrault.

During maintenance of boilers our technicians regularly observe a risk of imminent danger. They must then neutralize the device. This happens on average once a month.

Cyril Poyrault, Maciejowski heating company

Stoves and fireplaces too

Wood or pellet stoves and fireplaces must also be maintained regularly.

Maintenance is mandatory twice a year if it is the main heating mode installation, once before switching on the heating, once during the season. It’s the law !

If it is a backup heater a annual maintenance before reheating is sufficient.

« In the pipes we find tar, soot, bistre. They are highly flammable substances. If there is too much of them the risk of fire is enormous. They develop even more if we use wood that is not completely dry. Firewood should contain less than 20% moisture, pellets less than 8%. «  Explains Régis Gerbaud chimney sweep in Saint-Gence (87).

« In a duct you can also find a dead animal, an owl, a pigeon. Even a nest of wasps or hornets if the duct is concrete or masonry, which also increases the risk of fire. » Specifies the professional.

In the event of a claim if the maintenance of your devices has not been done regularly and by a professional, your insurer may limit its guarantees.

« After a claim an expert comes to determine the causes and according to the insurance companies if the maintenance has not been done correctly this can affect the compensation. » Explains Florence Redon, insurance agent in Limoges (AXA). « We do not require a maintenance certificate, we trust our customers to protect their families. But in the event of a claim it is an expert and not an insurer who will determine the causes. »

Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors

Today all new constructions are compulsorily equipped with smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

For others, the smoke detector has been compulsory since 2010.

« It should preferably be placed in the hallway that serves the bedrooms, because 41% of chimney fires break out in the evening or at night, so it is important that the detector is close to the sleeping area to be able to hear it very quickly ». Advised Sophie Vignerie, communications officer for the Haute-Vienne firefighters.

The carbon monoxide detector is highly recommended! All the professionals questioned on the subject are unanimous!

« We even gave it to our customers. »Indicates Florence Redon of Axa Assurance Limoges.

Simple gestures

Beyond the legal obligations, annual and / or biannual maintenance, smoke and monoxide detectors (strongly recommended), there are simple actions to observe on a daily basis:

● Air your home for at least 10 minutes a day.

● Never obstruct the air vents of the house.

● Observe the operating instructions for combustion devices. For example, never operate an auxiliary heater continuously, but for a maximum of 2 hours.

● Regularly check the batteries of smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

Carbon monoxide has the sneaky peculiarity of not having no smell. The warning signs of poisoning are insidious: headache, nausea, mild discomfort. They can lead to unconsciousness and death. If you feel them immediately open windows and doors, turn off heating and cooking appliances, leave your home. Call emergencies by dialing 15 and 18; 114 for the hearing impaired).

The beaver is back – Insurance for Pets


Contaminated rivers or soils, abandoned industrial waste… Do you live near a polluted site?
Click here to alert us!

It is the largest rodent in Europe and, in France, it came close to extinction. Historically present throughout the territory, beaver populations began to decline from the 16th century. Being considered as pests, they are regularly slaughtered by local residents and are coveted by hunters who hunt them for their meat, their fur and castoreum. At the start of the 20th century, after more than three centuries of intensive hunting, there were only a few dozen individuals left in France, all located in the extreme south of the Rhône basin, in the departments of Gard, Vaucluse and of Bouches-du-Rhône.

The species first repopulated the north of the Rhône basin, consolidating regional populations. From the 1950s, reintroduction operations were carried out on these individuals and in 1968, the beaver was officially classified « protected species« . A century after the start of these conservation policies, the beaver has repopulated much of its original habitat and is now present in more than 16,000 kilometers of waterways, such as the Loire, the Tarn, the Rhine or the Moselle. Today, no methodology allows to know the exact number of individuals, but according to the estimates of the French Biodiversity Office, this would represent several tens of thousands of individuals. naturalists as a « ecosystem engineer« , the return of the beaver has an impact on a large part of the fauna and flora.

Transport ban for poultry, eggs and poultry manure in Amstelveen – Insurance for Pets

Amstelveen – Because bird flu (H5) has been established at a hobby location in Mijdrecht (H5), there is currently a ban on transporting poultry, eggs and poultry manure in Amstelveen, among others.

To this end, Minister Schouten of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality decided yesterday: the transport ban applies to a zone of 10 kilometers around the contaminated location in Mijdrecht. A transport ban also applies to used litter and other animals and animal products from companies with commercially kept poultry.

The transport ban is also in force in, among others, Aalsmeer / Rijssenhout, Uithoorn / De Kwakel, Ouderkerk aan de Amstel, Abcoude, Wilnis, Nieuwveen and Nieuwkoop (click here for the overview mapSchiphol is outside the area with transport bans. The highways to Schiphol are also excluded.

Bird flu Mijdrecht

It is probably a highly pathogenic variant of the bird flu that was diagnosed in Mijdrecht. To prevent the virus from spreading, the approximately 300 birds on the site have been culled.

All current national measures, such as the obligation to house commercially kept poultry, will remain in full force. In addition, zoos, petting zoos and owners of hobby birds are obliged to shield their poultry and waterfowl so that these animals do not come into contact with wild waterfowl and their excrement. This can be done, for example, by keeping the animals in an aviary or in a run. The zoos and children’s farms can be visited, reports the national government.

« An animal needs time even after the home office »: Eastern Swiss animal rights activists and homes fear an increase in abandoned and returned animals

The demand for pets in times of Corona continues unchecked. Some animal shelters have also observed that more and more cats are being returned. Animal welfare associations fear an increase in abandoned animals after Corona and home office.

Animal shelters and animal rights activists fear an increase in the number of animals released, as here at the Sitterhöfli animal shelter in Engelburg.

Work in the home office, gastronomy and leisure activities closed; These days, life is mainly taking place in your own four walls. Especially single people therefore need a furry companion. “The demand for pets is very high all year round. Small dogs in particular have been popular for a few months, ”says Heinz Staub, owner of the Sitterhöfli animal shelter in Engelburg. In addition to a new home, Corona and home office have other advantages for the animals. « The owners are at home more often and therefore take more care of their pets again. »

good resolutions for our four-legged friends – Insurance for Pets

At the start of the year, Bénédicte Flament, our veterinary columnist from 6/8, gives you tips and advice to pamper your pets with particular attention to health and what to put in the bowl.

Granting the happiest possible life and the best possible health to our pets is like an obligation for any owner close to his animals. Although we observed during the crisis in Belgium a decrease in abandonments and an increase in adoptions, the Belgians are on the other hand bad students when it comes to the medicalization of our animals, note Bénédicte Flament.

We talk about medicalization when animals go to the veterinarian at least once a year. « In Belgium, this rate of medicalization is only 36% of the population of our pets.. It’s pretty weak and there is a way to improve because if we compare with England, the rate is 83%, so there is a clear difference« , deplores the veterinarian.

►►► Read also : How to take care of our pets during the winter?

A visit to the veterinarian at least once a year is therefore the latter’s recommendation. Even if all vaccinations are not an obligatory act although they are strongly recommended to prevent certain diseases, this will be an opportunity to see if everything is in order in the animal. Some vaccinations still become mandatory, like the one kennel cough in dogs. Obligation if it is entrusted to a community when going on vacation, for example.

The same goes for the rabies vaccination if the pet is required to leave the national territory: « Currently, this is more often the case, as people go closer and more often with the animal« , continues the columnist. It will also be an opportunity to put in order the deworming plan and the parasite protection plan.

To go further in the process, a health check-up is also recommended. Especially for animals of a certain age (around 7 years old). This check allowsanticipate unpleasant surprises and illnesses that your doggie, for example, might catch (like therenal failure, which can be detected and prevented early enough).

In the bowl …

« We tend to project ourselves into our pets and we also want to please them, but be careful, they do not work at all like us when it comes to the diet.« , warns Bénédicte Flament. Indeed, the bacterial flora of dogs and cats allowing to digest food is much more limited than that of humans. Result: « When we tend to vary the diet of our dog or cat, it is not positive for him and it can cause digestive problems.« .

The good plan that could surprise more than one? Opt for one and the same food all year round! The mode of selection of food in animals is not taste, but smell, says Bénédicte.

Festive pâtés are marketing products. It’s a way to have fun through the animal, but he will not see the difference

This mother residing in Connah’s Quay, less than 10 km from said refuge, no longer thought to see the female Shih Tzu of 10 years. She even believed her deceased.

On the day of his disappearance, Magdalena Klubczuk was at work while Roxy was at home with his son and brother. On his return, the animal was no longer in the garden where he had spent the day playing.

The bitch being chipped and wearing a collier with her contact details, the 35-year-old immediately thought of a vol. She had searched for it for weeks, to no avail.

Click here to alert us!

Baby turtles as far as the eye can see … Here is the massive outbreak of an endangered species. It was filmed in November 2020, along a tributary of the Amazon River. That day, 71,000 freshwater turtles hatched, followed by another 21,000 a few days later. In addition to natural predators, this species is also hunted by humans. However, it has an important role in the ecosystem: it helps regenerate vegetation by dispersing the seeds of the fruits on which it feeds.

A closely watched event

This event was closely followed by the Wildlife Conservation Society. « It is very important to continue monitoring and to improve protection and management methods to promote the conservation of the species.« , explains Camila Ferrara, ecologist in aquatic fauna. Being able to measure more than one meter and to weigh 90 kg in the adulthood, the Podocnemid enlarged is the largest freshwater turtle of Latin America.

Do not keep animals for 10 years after animal abuse – Insurance for Pets

An animal is a living being that has an intrinsic value. In animal abuse and neglect, this is grossly ignored. A firmer approach is therefore necessary. That is why the court can from now on impose a ban on keeping animals for a maximum of 10 years as an independent measure.

This and more is regulated in the bill to tackle animal abuse and animal neglect by Minister Grapperhaus of Justice and Security and Minister Schouten of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality.

Keeping ban as an independent measure

The ban on keeping animals may mean that someone is not allowed to keep or own animals, fewer animals or certain animal species. In the past, a ban on keeping animals could only be imposed by the court as a special condition for a suspended sentence. This bill introduces the ban on keeping animals as an independent measure. As a result, the ban on keeping animals can be imposed in more cases to protect animals.

Keeping ban and area ban

The judge can now also decide that the ban on keeping animals will take effect immediately after the court decision. This prevents someone who has been convicted by a court of law while awaiting an appeal from keeping animals for years under appalling conditions. In addition, the ban on keeping animals can include an area ban; to prevent anyone from approaching places where animals are kept. For example, dozens of cases are known in which animals have been abused or killed in stables, meadows and on children’s farms.

Livestock farms and pet stores

It is also possible that companies, such as livestock farms or pet stores, do not properly care for the animals under their care. Now those companies can be shut down if human or animal health is at risk. This bill provides that this is also possible when the welfare of the animal is damaged, for example due to malnutrition or poor care.

Bill for advice

The Council of Ministers has agreed to send the bill to the Council of State for advice. The text of the bill and the advice of the Council of State will be made public upon submission to the House of Representatives.

1452 sterilizations performed on Curaçao in 2020 – Insurance for Pets

Last year, the Dutch Animal Support Foundation carried out 1,452 sterilizations in Curaçao. According to the foundation, more than 11,000 fewer puppies were born.

The sterilizations were carried out on dogs and cats that roam the street, but also on people with pets who cannot afford such an operation themselves.

Dierenhulp has been carrying out the procedures since 2008 and has performed 17,678 sterilizations since the start. According to the foundation, this happens without any form of subsidy from a government or agency.


Stichting Dierenhulp complains that the bill to combat animal suffering has still not been discussed in Parliament. She was the initiator in 2015 and had presented the new Dog Ordinance in close collaboration with the PAIS fraction to the parliament of Curaçao.

Without legislation and support from the government, it will be difficult to tackle the problems with stray animals, according to Dierenleed.

Waldshut-Tiengen: The Steinatal animal shelter is providing more cats than usual in the corona pandemic – Insurance for Pets

At the Steinatal animal shelter, its manager Anja Fuchs and her team usually have a lot to do after Christmas. Because not every animal that ends up under the Christmas tree as a gift is really welcome, and animals are repeatedly abandoned or brought to the animal shelter for other reasons. Usually. Because the corona pandemic has changed the situation in the animal shelter.

The animal shelter with its six employees, three apprentices and two mini-jobbers benefits above all from the help of many volunteers throughout the year, explains Fuchs in an interview with this newspaper.

Buying a dog in the corona crisis? A dog owner gives tips

Their tasks are varied, among other things, they take care of the pets as walkers and cat pats. But the corona pandemic is also leading to contact restrictions in the animal shelter, so that currently only regular walkers can do their voluntary work.

The regular opening times, when those interested can come by and look at animals, have also been eliminated. « In the past, ten to 15 people often came at once, so we were pretty busy, » says the animal shelter, describing the situation.

Employees have more time for the animals again

Above all, the current allocation of appointments to get to know each other brings with it a positive thing. « At the moment we employees have much more time to deal with the animals ourselves, which is of course a great thing. »

Another positive aspect is the number of animals placed. While an average of 200 cats were placed in previous years, according to Anja Fuchs there were an estimated 250 velvet paws who found a new home in 2020. One possible reason: “You could feel that a lot of people have used the opportunity of more free time or home office to get an animal. Because it takes a lot of time to get used to it. «

Animal visits and Corona: Visitors and walkers must wear face masks in the animal shelter

Normally, the Steinatal animal shelter offers a temporary home for a maximum of 15 dogs, 50 cats and 15 small animals. But not only the many cat referrals mean that there are currently only 20 animals on site, explains Anja Fuchs. She reports that very few dogs have been given up or abandoned by their owners throughout the year.

On the one hand, she is surprised: « Suddenly nobody has an allergy or moves away, that’s strange. » On the other hand, she suspects that many owners were unsure whether the animal shelter was even open and that the animal owners wanted to limit their contacts as much as possible.

Financial losses due to Corona

But despite the positive aspects of more time and fewer animals given up, the past year « on the whole did not go well, » says Fuchs. An important financial pillar of the animal shelter is the animal boarding, which was hardly in demand. For the year 2021, she is therefore back on vacationers and wishes for more activities and events.

Worried stray dog ​​waits hours to wait for help to arrive to support her friend who is about to give birth – Insurance for Pets

Accompanying her ailing fellow, a dog refused to walk away until she received the help she needed. Both were taken care of and treated. The dog even gave birth shortly after her rescue.

Dream Fetchers Project Rescue is a association protection and rescue of animals based in Huntington Beach, in California. Its members were contacted by a motorist which had discovered 2 dogs wanderers on the side of the road, one of whom very badly, tell Animal Channel.

A female German shepherd was, in fact, on the flank, accompanied by another dog more small size. The latter seemed very concerned by the condition of its congener, which was hurt. The driver had preferred not to intervene himself so as not to aggravate the situation.

When the team of Dream Fetchers Project Rescue arrived at the scene, the little dog was still standing alongside the bitch. The volunteers took them both aboard their vehicle. Durant all the way leading them to the veterinary clinic, the canine had the head on your stomach of her friend, as if to bring her comfort.

The review carried out by the veterinary made it possible to assess the severity of the lesions from which she was suffering, but also to discover that she was expecting a happy event. The German Shepherd dog, who was called Marley subsequently, was indeed pregnant.

VIDEO. Do you know the Hirola, the closest antelope to extinction? – Insurance for Pets


Contaminated rivers or soils, abandoned industrial waste… Do you live near a polluted site?
Click here to alert us!

It is nicknamed the 4-eyed antelope … The reason? Its two preorbital glands resembling eyeballs. It is the hirola, an astonishing animal now on the list of the 100 most endangered species in the world and considered the antelope closest to extinction. Historically present over more than 38,000 km² between Kenya and Somalia, it only survives today over an area of ​​1,200 km².

The species has completely disappeared from Somalia and the number of individuals in Kenya has increased from 16,000 to 400 between 1979 and 2016. This spectacular collapse is largely due to the modification of its environment and in particular to the increase in cover tree which has doubled since 1985. If the multiplication of trees may seem like good news, it is not for hirola. These trees replace the grasslands essential to their food. This increase in plant cover is due to several factors: the intensification of periods of drought which weakens the herbaceous zones more than the savannah trees, the modification of livestock breeding methods and the virtual disappearance of elephants due to poaching.

The 5000 pachyderms formerly present in this region favored the maintenance of grazing areas by uprooting a large number of trees in their path. In an attempt to save this species, which is now on the verge of extinction, teams from the Hirola Conservation Program are working to restore habitat, fight against poaching of elephants and other wildlife in the region, and carry out missions research to better understand the needs of the species and carry out awareness-raising work with local populations.

According to the IUCN, if the hirola goes extinct, it would be the first extinction of a kind of mammal in mainland Africa in modern human history.

The municipality of Utrecht is doing this to ensure that the turn of the year is on the right track – Insurance for Pets

The municipality of Utrecht and various other organizations have come up with a whole package of measures to keep this New Year on the right track. In addition to extra efforts by the police and fire brigade, a lot is done for young people.

The municipality says that young people are suffering many consequences from the corona crisis. « That is why we feel the need to pay extra attention to the young people. » The Youth Work Utrecht Foundation (JoU) is doing more this year than in previous year changes.

An example of this is a video made by and for young people to inform this group about the fireworks ban and to encourage them not to cause nuisance or vandalism.

New Year’s Eve

On New Year’s Eve, volunteers walk the streets in various neighborhoods to address young people and thus try to keep the peace. “On this day there are also sports activities outside in almost all neighborhoods. For example, this year there are more football tournaments in different neighborhoods than in previous years. ”

The youth workers work in pairs during the turn of the year for their own safety. They prefer to work in their own neighborhood. « If a neighborhood needs more effort in the evening itself, the capacity is supplemented from the urban flexible pool and from neighborhoods where it is quieter. »

In addition, a number of young people who were involved in the disturbances
in August of this year received an area ban for the upcoming turn of the year.

Defense will also take action again in Utrecht this year. With the help of a drone, the police and the municipality are assisted in exploring possible disturbances in the city.


Finally, the municipality says that all partners from the police, welfare, care and safety are fully committed to this New Year. « We hope that we can jointly organize a turn of the year for and with young people in Utrecht, which may be different than usual, but is going well within the current corona rules. »

In the last New Years, Youp is increasingly losing his grip on time – Insurance for Pets

Youp van ‘t Hek from the’ Torentje ‘in his New Year’s Eve conference.Image NPO

His children were nervous for this New Year’s Eve conference. « Daddy, you are still funny, but the Netherlands has got a different sense of humor. »

It is well into the second half of Youp van ‘t Heks tenth – and last – end-of-year performance when the comedian does get to the heart of it. While he has been saying throughout his career that the people around him understood little about it, Van ‘t Hek now understands very little about it himself. And – annoying for a comedian who was used to winding the crowd around his finger – a considerable part of the audience no longer follows Youp.


In Grain of Salt he sketches a juncture in which the characters in his story – as always folk types with their hearts on their tongue and self-mockery through their veins – have become more and more outsiders. The fact that this increasingly also applies to the comedian himself is in this performance both his weakness and his strength.

Especially in the first part of his conference, the clock seems to be set to the mid-nineties, not coincidentally the heyday of the popularity of Van ‘t Hek (66). Jokes that ridicule mourning pets, wives’ dragoons and even mindfulness (does that actually still exist?); they sound like the pickup needle caught in the groove of the vinyl.

The way in which Van ‘t Hek has to play his conference is in that sense a joke in itself. Also with the unshakable Dutch New Year’s Eve tradition – initiated by Wim Kan, one of Van ‘t Heks heroes – things have to be different this year. The theaters are closed. The New Years cannot be live from a roaring Carré or Oude Luxor.

Contact sport

After much deliberation, Van ‘t Hek has decided to broadcast a try-out. A brave decision. In Utrecht he played on December 12 for the number of thirty men he hated. After all, cabaret is a contact sport. The empty hall makes it impossible for a comedian to sway with laughter. And then Van ‘t Hek also misses the last three weeks of topicality, in a world that seems to revolve around its axis three times every day.

In short: everything is different. And that while Youp, that much has been clear for some years, would have preferred to keep everything as it was. Yet as the 80 minutes progress, he gets a grip on the spirit of the times. Precisely by viewing himself without censorship, he plays a strong second half.

Own right

He talks about his own corona infection, about the ‘collision between me and the world’ and about his own right in which the so-called progressive squadron of the population also wallows. His plea for a little air in the social debate is absolutely spot on. Just like his glowing tribute to the healthcare staff.

The description of his ride home is moving when he – « I was wrapped around my stomach, but turned back » – resisted the virus and was released from the hospital. His thoughts are modest: « I just thought, I’m still here. »

After ten television conferences, this no longer applies to Van ‘t Hek on 31 December. After his overwhelming debut on that stage in 1989 and three decades of often uncontrollable end-of-year fun – that’s how it can sometimes go – a beautiful tradition has come to an end. That’s okay, but we will miss him.

Curfews, fines, barrier gestures … the practical guide to New Year’s Eve version 2020 – Insurance for Pets

The health authorities are worried because the sequence is delicate on the front of the fight against the Covid-19. France finds itself cut in two, with in the East, a flagrant deterioration of the situation, and in the West, more favorable indicators.

In this context, the authorities have not ceased, in recent weeks, to warn and encourage the French not to party (too much) so as not to worsen the situation. However, partying is not prohibited: here are the recommendations and what you need to know about this evening.

A curfew at 8 p.m.

While travel was authorized on the evening of December 24, New Year’s travel is restricted after 8 p.m. Since the government has instituted a curfew since deconfinement, only a few exceptions are allowed. So, after 8 p.m., you will only be able to travel for professional reasons, health reasons, a pressing family reason and the release of pets.

All of this with a certificate, of course. Nothing prevents you from spending an evening with family or friends, but you will either have to sleep there, or organize accommodation for your guests: they will only be able to move from 6 a.m. Note that it will be possible to travel between regions and if your train arrives after 8 p.m., you can still reach your place of residence with a derogatory certificate: your train ticket will serve as proof.

Travel not justified by a certificate between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. will be sanctioned with 135 euros for non-compliance with the curfew. And in several regions of France, the authorities have warned: controls will be tightened.

An evening with a limited number of guests

The best is to stay at home and organize a video with friends or family but invite people who are not prohibited, be sure to limit the number of guests. As for Christmas Eve, it is recommended to limit the number of guests: six adults maximum without children. During a press conference given in early December, Jean Castex was also questioned on the subject: « Can we invite a few people at home who will arrive before 8 pm and who will leave after 6 am? Yes it will be possible but the objective is to limit movements as much as possible » had declared the Prime Minister.

Respect barrier gestures as much as possible

In this period of strong circulation of the virus, caution will be required during this evening when the temptation to « let go » is great. As for Christmas and any gathering during an epidemic, it is recommended to respect barrier gestures as best as possible and to ventilate the rooms in which you are as much as possible. The Government recommends aeration of ten minutes every hour: this will allow potentially contaminated aerosols to be evacuated and the air to be renewed. The ideal would be to leave the window open permanently during the evening.

During reunions or arrivals, we avoid hugging and kissing. If you feel like dancing, prefer individual dances spaced apart from each other: languorous slow is rather not recommended, except with your other half.

Wearing a mask is also recommended, as long as you do not eat or drink. Be sure to respect the physical distance between the guests during the aperitif or the meal.

For hand hygiene, why not provide your guests or evening partners with a pump-bottle of hydroalcoholic gel? In the same way, host or guest, do not hesitate to agree between yourselves on the barrier gestures to be respected before the evening. This will help ease any tensions that may arise during the evening on this subject.

And what to do for the meal or the aperitif?

On this point, priority to individual portions and we avoid as much as possible the plates and bowls to share. For you the verrines, individual skewers and other cheese topped with a spike, to peck.

We also avoid turning the charcuterie or toast boards from hand to hand. Prefer an aperitif in the form of a buffet, if you can. This should allow less handling of food and surfaces.

If you are organizing a dinner party, it is preferable that one person is in charge of serving the food and drinks, with dedicated cutlery. Again, to reduce the risk of contamination from surfaces.

Wash your hands as soon as possible and as often as you can and avoid eating with your fingers. For drinks, it is recommended to clearly identify your glass in the early evening. If you lose sight of it or doubt whether it’s yours, get another one.

In the Alpes-Maritimes, the prefecture has issued a decree prohibiting the consumption of alcohol on public roads. In all the communes of the department, the consumption of alcoholic beverages on public roads is prohibited from December 30, 2020 at 8 p.m. to January 2, 2021 at 6 a.m. And of course, if you have any doubts about your condition or have symptoms that may be reminiscent of Covid-19, self-isolate and get tested as soon as possible.

first media release for the latest of the great pandas – Insurance for Pets

It was presented to some 150 journalists. The young Yuan Bao, the second giant panda born in captivity in Taiwan, appeared on Monday, December 28 in front of the cameras for her six months, climbing the timber assemblies of the Taipei Zoo. His parents, Yuan Yuan and Tuan Tuan, were donated by China to Taiwan in 2008 to symbolize the improvement in relations between the two countries.

China, which uses its « panda diplomacy », has a habit of loaning its pandas to foreign zoos, but had given this couple, whose names combined mean « reunion » or « unit. » The island and the mainland have been governed separately since 1949 but the Communist regime claims its sovereignty over Taiwan.

Yuan Bao a « well grown up », assured the mayor of the capital Taipei, Ko Wen-je. The young animal, conceived by artificial insemination, weighed 186 grams at birth, and now weighs 13 kilos. The mother, Yuan Yuan, had already given birth to a female, Yuan Zai, in 2013, which was then the first panda birth in Taiwan. Since then, the panda family has been the zoo’s central attraction. Just over 1,800 large pandas still live in the wild, according to theth world wide fund for nature WWF.

prohibition of slaughter without stunning is allowed – Insurance for Pets

EU member states may prohibit slaughter without stunning. Such a prohibition is not contrary to European law, the European Court of Justice has ruled. Jewish and Islamic organizations had gone to court to challenge a 2017 Flemish ban on slaughter without stunning. They believed that the ban was contrary to freedom of religion.

According to the Court, the Flemish prohibition offers a “good balance” between animal welfare and “the freedom of Jews and Muslims to practice their religion”. The judgment is remarkable because the advocate general at the Court concluded in September that the Flemish prohibition is in conflict with European law. At the time, the advocate general did acknowledge that slaughter without stunning “is difficult to reconcile with modern views on animal welfare”.

The Latest News writes:

According to the European Court, there is no European rule in force that opposes a regulation whereby ritual slaughter is subject to a method of stunning that is reversible and does not have to lead to the death of the animal. In addition, each Member State – or region – has a wide margin of discretion to strike a balance between animal welfare and freedom of religion.

The Flemish Minister of Animal Welfare Ben Weyts (N-VA) is happy with the conclusion of the European Court, he says on Twitter.

In the Netherlands, the Party for the Animals tried to ban slaughter without stunning in 2011. Although a large majority of the House of Representatives voted in favor of the Party for the Animals bill, there was no majority in the senate. In 2018, the party submitted a new proposal to ban slaughter without stunning.

Dog food pulled from shelves: ‘Stop your … – Insurance for Pets

The Federal Food Agency is urging dog owners not to give their dogs any more Pedigree Vital Mini Adult beef and vegetables sold in a 1.4 kg bag for the time being. It contains too much vitamin D. Dogs can become unwell after eating.

Mars Belgium, after consultation with the FASFC, will recall one production lot of Pedigree Vital Mini Adult beef and vegetables in a 1.4 kg bag with one specific best-before date of 12/11/2021. The product contains too high a content of vitamin D, as has been shown by a quality check.

“We ask consumers who have bought it to immediately stop feeding their pet with this product and to contact our consumer services. We work closely with our distribution partners to get the product off store shelves as quickly as possible. We would like to recommend every bag of store owners and consumers Pedigree Vital Mini Adult beef and vegetables of 1.4 kg to check. The products with an expiration date of 12/11/2021 may no longer be consumed by pets’, says Mars Belgium in a statement.

The product in question was sold in department stores of Colruyt, Delhaize Le Lion / De Leeuw, Intermarché Belgium and Carrefour Belgium.

The FASFC emphasizes that this is an isolated incident and that no other Pedigree ® products have been affected or are part of the recall. So they can be given to dogs without any problems.


Dogs need a certain amount of vitamin D in their diet to maintain a healthy balance of calcium and phosphorus in their body. That helps keep their bones healthy and plays an important role for muscles, nerves and all cells in the body.

However, an overdose of vitamin D can lead to poisoning. Characteristics include loss of appetite, vomiting and diarrhea, difficulty in breathing, urinating more than normal, and epileptic seizures of some kind. Without treatment, it can lead to kidney failure and even death.

Viennese pet shop: For the sake of our animals, completely renounce New Year’s Eve this year – Insurance for Pets

Andreas Popper, chairman of the Viennese pet shop appeals to all animal lovers: Let us adhere to the corona rules of the federal government and do without firecrackers and Co.

Vienna (OTS) This year there is the greatest chance for our animals – pets as well as farm animals and wild animals – to bring a peaceful turn of the year.

Although the bang is forbidden in the residential area anyway, many animals suffered each year. This has to come to an end.

Animals are friends, companions and therapists – and in times like these they are of particular importance to many people. « The corona crisis clearly shows us that animals can make an immensely valuable contribution to society with reduced social contacts, » explains Andreas Popper, the chairman of the pet retailers in the Austrian Chamber of Commerce (WKO)
A total of around 5 million pets live in around half of all Austrian households. Austria’s animal lovers look after around 2 million cats, 1 million dogs, 520,000 small animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters, 400,000 birds, 125,000 reptiles and fish in 420,000 aquariums and garden ponds.

Animals do permanent social work

Animals have extremely positive health and psychosocial effects on humans. It has been shown that pets strengthen the immune system, lower stress, lower blood pressure, lower the risk of heart attacks and can thereby extend life. Pets are an important part of life, especially for single people, for example in difficult life situations as we are currently experiencing due to the corona crisis. They also convey joy and meaning after losing a partner, ”says Andreas Popper. Even for very young people, pets play an important role in their social development: Children and young people learn to take responsibility through pets and they increase empathy.

Recommended products in winter and around New Year’s Eve

Animals enjoy our existence, we have a duty to deal responsibly with animals and nature.

This is why the Austrian pet trade recommends the following products with the request – especially in difficult economic times – to buy them in Austrian shops:

Healthy and high quality main food / snacks and natural Kauartikel (e.g. coffee wood, chewing roots, antlers ..)
Care products: Paw protection for salt sprinkling, natural shampoos, etc.

Against cold: Thermal blankets and heat pillows for transport, therapeutic dog clothes

Against New Year’s Eve bangs as well as for education and socialization : Relaxation products based on pheromones as a spray, tablet, collar or room evaporator

Support for outdoor posture : Insulated rodent stalls and huts, heatable drinking troughs and other heating devices

For safety : Luminous collars, flasher and reflective leashes and harnesses to protect our dogs as best as possible when going out at night

For indoor employment: Games for the animal (e.g. intelligence games and activity articles for dogs, cats, rabbits and the like)

For the wild animals : species-appropriate food, bird feeders, shelter and nesting aids for birds, hedgehogs, squirrels and others

The Austrian pet shop with over 1000 shops supplies the pets with the necessary products such as feed, emergency and hygiene items even during the lockdown!

We are always there for our animals and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a peaceful, reflective New Year.

what will change between Europe and Great Britain from January 1, 2021 – Insurance for Pets

Trade, customs, fishing, pets … Here are the main changes that will take place next Friday.

After more than four years, two negotiations leading to two agreements (that of withdrawal and that on the future relationship), the die is now cast. They are making a lot of changes from January 1, 2021.

● Trade: zero quotas, zero tariffs

This is the heart of the agreement reached on December 24. By giving access to its single market for all British products without tariffs or quotas, the European Union is granting a hitherto non-existent privilege. British exports, 46% destined for Europe, will be able to continue at no extra cost. The same goes for European exports. Relief for the aerospace, automotive and food industries for which the UK is a prime market.

● Return from customs

However, not everything will be as easy as before. « There will be real changes, this is the consequence of Brexit », hammered Michel Barnier. Because Brexit is synonymous with the return of customs, which were abolished in 1993. Import and export declarations will be the rule for any transaction. An administrative burden that risks driving up prices. Not to mention the impact on the fluidity of trade when customs officers will have to, at a minimum, examine the documentation of each truck. And that the controls will be systematic for the food industry. « Each live animal entering EU territory will have to be individually inspected by a veterinarian », specifies a European source.

● Fair competition

Avoiding all fiscal and social dumping was one of the red lines of Europeans. To ensure this fair competition, London and Brussels have known « The most advanced system that exists ». If the differences in standards (in terms of environment, labor law, taxation) become too important on the one hand, the other could choose to impose tariffs in a retaliatory way. And if a European company considers that it is suffering from state aid attributed to a British competitor in a dubious manner, it can apply to the courts or to the European Commission.

The City, Europe’s leading financial center, will therefore no longer be able to sell its financial products across the EU after January 1.

● – 25% for fishing?

The sticking point that brought the negotiations to the brink of failure, the whole battle revolved around the percentage that the European Union should cede to the United Kingdom. European fishermen will gradually reduce their catches in British waters until they are reduced, by June 2026, by 25% according to the Commission and « By a few% more » then, according to Michel Barnier. Afterwards, the water division will be negotiated annually. The risk of a British refusal will therefore exist. But safeguards have been implemented in the text, assures the European Commission.

● The City dethroned?

No more financial passports. Neither finance nor any service is part of the deal. The City, Europe’s leading financial center, will therefore no longer be able to sell its financial products across the EU after the 1is January. The European Commission will unilaterally decide to award equivalence decisions, provided that London maintains regulations equivalent to that of the Union. For the moment, only 2 (of the 39 existing) have been granted by Brussels. This forces the big banks, or investment funds based in London, to open branches in the Union. The preferred destinations are Dublin, Frankfurt, Luxembourg and Paris, but these relocations remain marginal, representing no more than 10,000 jobs.

● New paradigm for transport

The watchwords of the Withdrawal Agreement for air, road, rail and maritime connectivity are “Continuity and sustainability”. If chaos is avoided, it won’t work like it did before. For tourists crossing the Channel Tunnel, be careful to have an international driving license because driving licenses are no longer automatically recognized. London-Paris flights will be maintained, but British airlines will no longer be able to carry out cabotage (stopover flights such as London-Paris-Rome).

● End of free movement

The free movement of Europeans in the United Kingdom (and vice versa) ends on 1is January. An identity card will be sufficient for the first few months but, from October 2021, Europeans will have to present their passport during customs checks. For any stay of more than three months, you will need to apply for a visa.

● Pets under the microscope

To travel to England with your dog, cat or goldfish, the European passport for pets will no longer be recognized. However, the rules will not change immediately. In the opposite direction, however, the procedure will be more complicated. In particular, owners will have to obtain a certificate of good health ten days before the trip and enter the EU through certain points established in advance.

For those wishing to immigrate to the UK from January 2021, it will be necessary to face a stricter immigration policy. They will be subject to a new points system

● A points system for European expatriates

For the 4.2 million European nationals living across the Channel before December 31, 2020, no worries. Their rights are protected. For those wishing to immigrate to the UK from January 2021, it will be necessary to face a stricter immigration policy. They will be subject to a new points system in which age, English proficiency, level of education will be taken into account to obtain a visa, valid for five years. Added to this is the obligation to have a job offer with a salary of at least 26,500 pounds (29,500 euros), which now makes it impossible to embark on an adventure by living from odd jobs.

● Cardiff removed from the list of Erasmus destinations

End of season for the 32,000 European students who, each year, temporarily enter British universities thanks to the Erasmus program. For French students, their third favorite destination is crossed off the list. The UK has decided to exit the student exchange program, citing cost issues and announcing a global program to replace it. As for those who want to study in the UK, outside Erasmus, the change in status will involve a sharp increase in tuition fees.

● The end of « roaming »

Another consequence of Brexit. European consumers’ right to roaming at national rates will not be guaranteed, and UK mobile operators may therefore charge additional charges to European roaming customers. And vice versa for the British in Europe.

● Limited security cooperation

The agreement provides for the exchange of classified information and cooperation in the fight against terrorism and cross-border crime. For foreign policy, foreign security and cooperation in defense or development, Boris Johnson has chosen to exclude them from the agreement.

While sorting through the trash that was passing on the conveyor belt before going through the shredder, an employee was intrigued by one of the bags he was having trouble opening. The man was far from expecting to find a living cat there. Yet that is what it contained. A discovery that saved the life of the feline.

« The cruelty of the people is surprising », Deplores Igor Perfilyev, company director Gorkomkhoz, specialized in sorting of waste and where a chat has been saved in extremis by one of the staff.

The facts took place on December 21 on the company’s website in Oulianovsk, in western Russia, reports the Daily Mail. The scene was captured using the video surveillance installed in the room where the waste inspection took place.

That day, the sorting team saw, as usual, the waste pass before their eyes on the conveyor belt. In particular, employees had to check the contents of the bags, final step before moving to crusher.

One of these bags caught the attention of an officer. He took hold of it and tried it some difficulty opening it. When he did, he saw with dismay that a cat was inside. He immediately took her in his arms and asked that the conveyor belt be stopped. He then has it caress for the comfort, because the animal was terrified.

Terrified, but unharmed. Miraculous, even, because it was going straight towards the crusher. The presence of mind of this man made him save the life.

Igor Perfilyev assured that the feline was  » healthy, clean and well maintained », Which suggests that he did have a family before ending up in this waste sorting center. He adds that unfortunately they find animals more and more often among the rubbish.  » The big problem is that it is impossible to find those responsible for these acts », He regretted.

It is not known what happened to the cat afterwards, but it was probably given to a refuge, where he will wait to find a new adoptive family.

« It’s the most beautiful place in the world to spend Christmas. Everything is white, it’s beautiful and it’s cold! » Large expanses of lakes and boreal forests, birch and fir trees, all covered in a white blanket of snow and ice.

Autti is located 80 kilometers from Rovaniemi, and it is consecrated Santa Claus village. It is here, in the heart of nature, that Stéphane and Nathalie built their house. Chilly abstain! « There, we have just spent two days at -30, there today it is a little -10. In winter, we have peaks at 25 -30 -35 °, in January, there are periods of a week at -35 to -40 maximum. « 

Stéphane: « We have just spent two days at -30 ° in Autti, today it is -10 °. » (Photo DR)

Each winter, from mid-December to the end of March, the couple receive their clients for stays of one week on average. But this year, the heart is not really there.

Due to Covid-19, French tourists stayed at home. Only three-day charter flights are exceptionally authorized to save the season, but they were not enough to bring back many foreigners.

Stéphane: « We have four different breeds, each with its own characteristics » (Photo DR)

Stéphane and Nathalie have lived in Autti since they left Marseille for their common passion: sled dogs. They arrived here with their motorhome, in which they experienced their very first winter in Lapland, and with around thirty animals.

« We have four different races, explains the Frenchman, each with its own characteristics: the Siberian husky is the joker, it can do everything, the Malamute is the tractor for sled dogs, the Alaskan husky is a racing dog and the dog wolf of Czechoslovakia, he can learn everything. « 

Stéphane: « Each driver will take care of the 4 to 6 dogs in his team » (Photo DR)

Reasons for this: individual responsibility and natural social distancing, erected in virtue of nature. Finland also owes this good result to its small population: five and a half million inhabitants, over an area as large as Germany. The country finally has Russia as a neighbor and has never stopped stocking medical equipment since World War II.

Consequently, no confinement here, the measure is also banned by the Finnish constitution, gatherings can, depending on the region, be only limited to 10 people. Everyone has downloaded the equivalent of the « Tous anti-Covid » application and respects the wearing of a mask, even if it is not compulsory. A discipline that allows residents to cross paths in bars and restaurants, which remain open like all shops, and even to meet in the sauna:

« Everyone has it in every house, even in town, even in apartment buildings, apartments. There is at least one sauna in each house, even a second sauna for guests, for friends. If saunas are not provided in some buildings, there is always a sauna for a whole block in the basement. « 

It is here, in the middle of nature, that they built their house (Photo DR)

The Finnish authorities estimate that there will be 85% fewer tourists this year than in 2019.

Aleph Farms from Israel wants to produce alien meat (video) – Insurance for Pets

If it is up to Israeli start-up Aleph Farms, which unveiled the world’s first slaughter-free steak grown from animal cells in late 2018, meat production will begin to take place in space.

The Israeli company has already experimented with meat production in space, producing slaughter-free steak on the International Space Station last year. The initiative was an attempt to demonstrate that sustainable food security on Earth and beyond can be provided by producing meat regardless of the availability of land and local water resources.

With the announcement of a new program called Aleph Zero, Aelph Farms aims to improve food security by producing fresh, quality meat everywhere, independent of climate change and natural resources. The company wants to introduce new possibilities for producing fresh, quality meat, even in the harshest, most remote environments, such as outer space. If successful, the program could lead to alien food production, one of the main obstacles to long-term space missions.

The startup told NoCamels that it is developing strategic partnerships with technology companies and space agencies for long-term research and development collaborative agreements « that will ensure the integration of Aleph Farms’ innovations into leading space programs. »

Such programs will leverage the company’s deep-rooted know-how in cell biology, tissue engineering, and nutritional science to establish BioFarms in alien environments, enabling the company to apply what it has learned in space.

“The restrictions imposed by deep-spaceexploration is forcing us to hone the efficiency of our meat production process to much higher sustainability standards, ”explains Aleph Farms co-founder and CEO Dr. Didier Toubia explains.

“The ‘Aleph Zero’ program reflects our mission to produce delicious quality meat locally regardless of where people live and consume, even in the most remote places on Earth such as the Sahara or Antarctica, so that everyone has unconditional access to quality food, anytime, anywhere, Added Toubia.

Toubia noted that the program’s name, « Aleph Zero, » represents the mathematical symbol of the smallest infinite number and thus the company’s vision of producing meat with almost no natural resources.

The company hopes to build its first BioFarm next year.
