A well researched measure known as the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) scale lists 10 negative canada goose store childhood experiences that can have significant impacts. Adults who’ve had four or more of those experiences are more likely to struggle with addiction, depression and even heart disease. That’s in addition to the behavior issues experienced by many trauma survivors. Canada Goose online

Every Hope kid could check off at least four ACEs. None of them lived with two married parents, their teachers said. Many struggled with substance abuse or had caretakers who did. Several have been canada goose coats in the juvenile justice system or had parents who’d been in jail. One had a brother who was getting cancer treatment Canada Goose Outlet for a late stage tumor. Another had recently lost his grandfather and lived with a relative he felt didn’t like him. A third had fought with a roommate, a friend of his older brother, and the police had been called.

Turismul aerian, pe avarii

Published

on

În plină pandemie şi criza generată de COVID aeroporturile româneşti se zbat să supravieţuiască. La mare, de exemplu, poţi judeca turismul şi după cursele aeriene. Mihail Kogălniceanu este un aeroport pustiu unde aterizează 3 avioane într-o săptămână. Situaţia este la fel peste tot. Traficul aerian de pasageri s-a prăbuşit de la începutul crizei. În aceste condiţii bulgarii au reuşit să ne ia faţa până  şi la acest capitol. Pe aeroportul din Varna sunt 10 zboruri zilnic iar la Burgas 21.

Avem o mare frumoasă cu plaje de lux, dar şi cu staţiuni încăpătoare. Avem şi un aeroport în Constanţa, pentru ca turiştii să ajungă mai uşor pe litoral. Pentru oricine, asta ar fi reţeta succesului în turism. Doar că în România, este fix pe dos. În cea mai aglomerată lună a anului, August, doar un avion aterizează pe Aeroportul Mihail Kogălniceanu. Este o cursă de la Londra, o dată pe săptămână. Turişti cât să-numeri pe degetele de la o mână.

Şi din păcate situaţia este la fel pe mai toate aeroporturile din România. Criza provocată de pandemia de Covid a dus la disponibilizări în masă, rezilieri de contracte şi zboruri anulate pe bandă rulantă. Puţine au fost situaţiile în care s-au găsit soluţii de moment. Aşa se face că în primele şase luni ale anului numărul de pasageri a scăzut de la 10 milioane la doar 4. Numai în luna iulie scăderea a fost de 75 la sută. Per total anul acesta se aşteaptă la o scădere de aproximativ 60 la sută.

În aceste condiţii ajutoarele financiare oferite de către statul român aeroporturilor şi companiilor aeriene sunt aproape vitale pentru a putea depăşi această criză.

Reprezentanţii companiilor aeriene româneşti susţin că dacă situaţia nu se va înrăutăţi va exista o stabilizare şi atunci  putem vorbi despre o revenire pentru anul viitor. Asociaţia Internaţională de Transport aerian este însă mai pesimistă şi dă ca termen de revenire la nivelul înregistrat înainte de declanşarea crizei, anul 2024.
