Fifa Investigates Croatia Fans After Jeering Canadian Goalkeeper

Fifa, the international governing body of football, launched a disciplinary investigation into Croatia's fans on Tuesday following their jeering of Canada's goalkeeper Milan Borjan. The jeers were reportedly due to Borjan's Serbian family ties.

Fifa Investigates Croatia Fans After Jeering Canadian Goalkeeper

The incident occurred during Sunday's game which resulted in Canada's defeat at 4-1. A banner was displayed showing Borjan's family's hometown, with the logo of a tractor manufacturer above it. This is likely referencing the time when Serbs were reported to have fled Croatia in tractors in 1995, when Yugoslavia broke up. Borjan's family moved to Canada in 2000.

Additionally, disciplinary proceedings have been opened against Mexico and Ecuador for allegedly singing homophobic chants. This follows Fifa's 'zero-tolerance policy' for discriminatory fan abuse. Under this policy, referees are authorised to suspend or terminate matches if players are being targeted for race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.

In 2019, Fifa increased the penalties for discriminatory abuse, with the minimum fine set at 20,000 Swiss francs ($20,900; £17,500), as well as requiring that the team play one game in an empty stadium. Since then, several sanctions have been issued during matches. Last year, Mexico was fined 100,000 Swiss francs and asked to play two World Cup qualifying games in front of empty stands due to homophobic chants. Hungary's football federation was also fined 200,000 Swiss francs and ordered to ban fans from attending two matches for abusing black English players.

Fifa has itself come under fire after selecting Qatar, where homosexuality is illegal, to host the World Cup. There have been reports of people being told to remove items of clothing - such as hats or armbands - that show support for the LGBT community. Nevertheless, Qatar has insisted that all viewers will be welcome at the tournament.

Idaho School Shooting: The teenager went to school with a gun in his bag and shot

A teenager went to school with a gun in her bag. He went to school and fired randomly. Two students and a school worker were injured. The incident took place in the US state of Idaho on Thursday. The BBC quoted the police as saying.

The teenager is a sixth grader at Rigby Middle School in Rigby, Idaho. According to the police, the girl will be 11 or 12 years old. Three people injured in his shooting are currently safe.

According to local county sheriff Steve Anderson, the teenager went to school with a gun in her bag. He pulled a gun out of his bag and started firing before leaving at the end of class. He fired several shots at random. Two students and a school worker were injured. At one point a teacher snatched the gun from him.

Sheriff Steve Anderson said, "A teacher was able to disarm the girl and detain her until security forces arrived." She said the girl was now in police custody.

The motive is still unknown at this time. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and local law enforcement agencies are investigating the incident.

One student was shot once in an extremity and may require surgery, said Dr. Michael Lemon, the hospital’s trauma medical director. The other student was potentially shot twice and hit in two limbs.

“The fact the injuries are as insignificant as they are — they could be so much worse, so we feel absolutely blessed,” Lemon said.

Pfizer claims that their vaccine is 95% effective

Pfizer's coronavirus (Covid 19) vaccine has been claimed to be up to 95 percent effective. The US drugmaker made the claim on Wednesday. Pfizer claims that the vaccine did not cause any significant side effects.

With this announcement, Pfizer took the lead among the coronary vaccines in the final stages of testing. Pfizer says their vaccine is 94 percent effective in the elderly, the most vulnerable group to the coronavirus.

Bioentech, a German company, is working with Pfizer, a US multinational pharmaceutical company, to develop the vaccine. Bioentech says it plans to apply to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for emergency approval of the vaccine in a few days.

 Pfizer chief executive Albert Borla said in a statement that the new results were an important milestone in their eight-month journey in the vaccine development process. They are in the process of developing a vaccine that will be effective in preventing the terrible corona epidemic.

This Pfizer vaccine needs to be applied in two doses to a human body. If the FDA approves the vaccine, the company could supply up to 50 million doses by the end of this year. By the end of next year, the supply of vaccines could increase to 1.3 billion doses.

However, only about half of the vaccines produced this year will be supplied to the United States.

Pfizer said on November 9 that their vaccines were up to 90 percent effective. Was then informed. The vaccine should be transported and stored at a temperature of minus 60 degrees Celsius. Pfizer's biggest challenge after getting FDA approval will be how they transport the vaccine from one place to another. Pfizer has already formulated a design, the New York Times reported today. According to the design, 1 thousand to 5 thousand doses of vaccine will be kept in a special box attached to dry ice. These boxes will be connected to the Global Positioning System (GPS) technology. These boxes can be stored in traditional refrigerators for up to 5 days. Vaccines can be kept in this box for maximum 15 days for storage in special refrigerators. However, in order to save more, the box cannot be opened more than twice a day in addition to re-applying dry ice.

Moderna Inc., another multinational pharmaceutical company in the United States, said on Monday that their vaccines were 94.5 percent effective in preventing corona. Modern News hopes their vaccines can be stored in the refrigerator at temperatures of 2 to 6 degrees Celsius for up to 30 days, Reuters reported. It can be stored at minus 20 degrees Celsius for 6 months.
