Made with a North American perspective of showing the couple as national heroes, the plan backfired. The criticism was general. The worst that her husband, Volodymyr Zelensky, also appears in the photos. This fact, at least, underscores Washington’s weight in Kiev’s successive misguided decisions.

The federal government has announced the new, nationwide uniform model of the ID card. The new General Register (RG) will use the CPF number as the unique identification of Brazilians. The documents retain the format and output standard. Government agencies such as public security or civil police departments have until March 6, 2023 to adapt to the change. In addition to the physical version issued on paper, citizens also have access to a digital version. The new RG is more secure as it allows electronic verification of its authenticity via QR code, including offline, and uses information from voters’ fingerprints. The main changes are: authentication via QR code; mandatory biometrics; Identification of the organ donor or not; Naturalness; international standard MRZ code (same code as in passports); blood group and RH factor in the document; Uniformity of the identity card for the entire national territory.

The movement’s return to shopping malls on memorial days finally revealed which of them are most loving in affective relationships. Mother’s Day wins by a wide margin with an 18% increase in traffic compared to 2019, while Valentine’s Day moved 13% more over the same period. Now the chips are here for Father’s Day who has always been the ugly duckling of those special dates for the trade. But interestingly, the postpandemic return to malls has been larger than expected.

Still in the agricultural production cycle, it is worth noting that finally the marketing of cheeses made from raw milk in an artisan way was authorized throughout the national territory. Though it went unnoticed, the hammer hit just last month and Minas Gerais producers from Canastra to Serro, traversing dozens of other production regions, are celebrating. However, I need some stamps to be able to make the decision. Let’s see how much this costs small producers. A, just promote export.

The French in the Bordeaux region of France are furious about the Chinese history they got caught up in when they sold several of their famous vineyards to investors in the east. After being lucky enough to get millions of euros for them, they now see the forgotten vineyards with growing weeds some closed and abandoned for four years, including the employees.

Antiheat novelty

Since every coin has two sides, the searing heat igniting the northern hemisphere ultimately brought about some advances in the matter.
