Moldova's Presidential Elections Influenced by Heavy but Discreet Russian Involvement - The Jamestown Foundation

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov’s recent lengthy interview (Komsomolskaya Pravda, October 14) stirred deep concerns in the Republic of Moldova.

The unfolding COVID-19 pandemic: A probability-based, nationally representative study of mental health in the United States - Science Advances

The COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) pandemic is a collective stressor unfolding over time; yet, rigorous empirical studies addressing its mental health consequences among large probability-based national samples are rare. Between 18 March and 18 April 2020, as illness and death escalated in the United States, we assessed acute stress, depressive symptoms, and direct, community, and media-based exposures to COVID-19 in three consecutive representative samples from the U.S. probability-based nationally representative NORC AmeriSpeak panel across three 10-day periods (total N = 6514). Acute stress and depressive symptoms increased significantly over time as COVID-19 deaths increased across the United States. Preexisting mental and physical health diagnoses, daily COVID-19–related media exposure, conflicting COVID-19 information in media, and secondary stressors were all associated with acute stress and depressive symptoms. Results have implications for targeting public health interventions and risk communication efforts to promote community resilience as the pandemic waxes and wanes over time.

Czech Republic tops record infection surge in Eastern Europe - Thehour.com

PRAGUE (AP) - The Czech government announced further restrictions Thursday to contain the pandemic in the hardest hit-country in struggling Central and Eastern Europe, where a record surge of infections was also recorded in most other countries. Calling his country's record spike "alarming," Health Minister Roman Prymula said the Czech health care system has been facing a steep increase of people needing intensive care, while more COVID-19 patients have been dying. "We have to limit those increases," Prymula said. The Czech Republic currently has more people testing positive daily than any other country in Central and Eastern Europe, even neighboring Germany whose population is eight times bigger. Starting Monday, all theaters, cinemas and zoos will be closed for at least two weeks. "We have to limit the numbers of people who meet each other outside their families," Prymula said. At the same time, all indoor sports activities will be banned. Outdoors, only up to 20 people will be allowed to participate in competitions, a measure that will badly hit professional sports such as soccer. Prymula said planned outdoor international games will be allowed to go ahead without fans. Fitness centers and indoor public swimming pools will be closed for at least two weeks, starting on Friday. Restaurants and bars will have to close at 8 p.m. and a maximum four people will be allowed per table. All universities and most high schools will offer only remote teaching. The new confirmed day-to-day increase reached a new record high of 5,335 on Wednesday, almost 900 more than Tuesday's previous record. Officials said they expect up to 8,000 could be testing positive daily later in October, for which month the overall number of new cases could reach 130,000. So far 95,360...

Camavinga, Caputo set age marks for France, Italy in wins - San Antonio Express-News

BERLIN (AP) — France and Italy celebrated notable achievements on opposite ends of the age spectrum on Wednesday as both teams earned big wins in friendly games. The 17-year-old Eduardo Camavinga became France's youngest scorer in more than 100 years after making his first start for the national team, netting the opening goal in a 7-1 rout of Ukraine in Paris. The 33-year-old Francesco Caputo became the oldest player to score on his debut for Italy when he grabbed the second goal in a 6-0 win over Moldova in Florence. The Sassuolo forward broke the record held by Leonardo Pavoletti, who was 30 when he scored in a European Championship qualifier against Liechtenstein last year. Caputo almost got a second goal, too, but Moldova defender Veaceslav Posmac converted into his own net as he tried to clear. Stephan El Shaarawy scored twice while Bryan Cristante and Domenico Berardi also netted their first international goals for Italy, which was 5-0 up at the break after a first-half onslaught. Roberto Mancini fielded an experimental Italy side ahead of the Nations League matches against Poland and the Netherlands on Oct. 11 and 14. At Stade de France, Olivier Giroud scored twice on his 100th appearance to take his tally to 42 goals, one more than French great Michel Platini and just nine behind France’s all-time top-scorer Thierry Henry. Camavinga opened the scoring with an acrobatic left-footed strike from outside the box into the top corner. He became the second youngest player to score for France, at 17 years, 11 months. Maurice Gastiger was just six months younger when he scored against Switzerland on March, 8, 1914. Corentin Tolisso, Kylian Mbappé and Antoine Griezmann also netted for France, while Vitaliy Mykolenko scored an own goal for a Ukraine side depleted...

The Covid pandemic dealt a blow not only to the state of the world economy, but to its most important asset, namely human capital. In particular, one of the most significant implications of the Covid pandemic has been the sizeable shock delivered to migration flows and the related flow of remittances. The drastic reduction in the size of remittances exacerbates the imbalances observed in the global economy associated with the gap between developed and developing economies.

MATCHDAY: England-Belgium at Wembley; France hosts Portugal - Midland Daily News

A look at the pick of the Nations League games in Europe on Sunday: ENGLAND vs. BELGIUM Belgium opened its Nations League group with two victories last month, while England collected four points. Belgium, the world's top-ranked team which beat England twice at the 2018 World Cup, will be without the injured Eden Hazard and Dries Mertens at an empty Wembley Stadium. Mertens is stuck in Italy due to coronavirus regulations. Jadon Sancho and Tammy Abraham are back in contention for England after missing a 3-0 victory over Wales in a friendly on Thursday. They have been declared healthy after breaching national pandemic guidelines by attending a gathering with more than six people. Ben Chilwell was also there last weekend and remains absent with a non-coronavirus-related illness. England coach Gareth Southgate has to decide whether to keep Jack Grealish in the side after a strong display on the left of a front three. With Jordan Pickford looking far from assured in goal for Everton, Southgate also has to decide whether to retain Nick Pope in the starting lineup after a clean sheet against Wales. FRANCE vs. PORTUGAL First place in the group is up for grabs when World Cup winner France takes on European champion Portugal at Stade de France. They are level after two wins. Having recently overtaken Michel Platini to move into second place on France's all-time scorers' list with 42, Olivier Giroud can move closer to Thierry Henry's national record of 51. But he is still way behind Cristiano Ronaldo's tally of 101 for Portugal. The superstar will be determined to make up for a rare off day in front of goal in a 0-0 draw against Spain this week. POLAND vs. ITALY Italy coach Roberto Mancini is likely to recall his regular players after fielding an experimental side in last week's friendly against Moldova. Italy...
