Crowd Control - Mister CJ

Unbeknownst to Cleo, Mr. Kebun and Ramee El-Rahman got on top of the roofs, and surrounded Cleo. Ramee saw the people holding up Ray, and wanted to shoot them, but was cautioned by Mr. K, who then dropped behind Cleo and ordered her to put her gun down, and told Ray to put her hands down - as she was safe now. The other members of Chang Gang quickly gained control of the situation, ordering everyone to put down their weapons.

For the 1768 general election, Henry Fox bought his son a seat in Parliament for the West Sussex constituency of Midhurst, though Charles was still nineteen and technically ineligible for Parliament. Fox was to address the House of Commons some 254 times between 1768 and 1774[3] and rapidly gathered a reputation as a superb orator, but he had not yet developed the radical opinions for which he would become famous. Thus, he spent much of his early years unwittingly manufacturing ammunition for his later critics and their accusations of hypocrisy. A supporter of the Grafton and North ministries, Fox was prominent in the campaign to punish the radical John Wilkes for challenging the Commons. "He thus opened his career by speaking in behalf of the Commons against the people and their elected representative."[10] Consequently, both Fox and his brother Stephen were insulted and pelted with mud in the street by the pro-Wilkes London crowds.[11]

Fox, however, had not been present in the House for the beginning of the Dunning debate, as he had been occupied in the adjoining eleventh-century Westminster Hall, serving as chairman of a mass public meeting before a large banner that read "Annual Parliaments and Equal Representation".[17] This was the period when Fox, hardening against the influence of the Crown, was embraced by the radical movement of the late eighteenth century. When the shocking Gordon riots exploded in London in June 1780, Fox, though deploring the violence of the crowd, declared that he would "much rather be governed by a mob than a standing army."[18] Later, in July, Fox was returned for the populous and prestigious constituency of Westminster, with around 12,000 electors, and acquired the title "Man of the People".[3]

Happily for George, the unpopular coalition would not outlast the year. The Treaty of Paris was signed on 3 September 1783, formally ending the American Revolutionary War. Fox proposed an East India Bill to place the government of the ailing and oppressive British East India Company, at that time in control of a considerable expanse of India, on a sounder footing with a board of governors responsible to Parliament and more resistant to Crown patronage. It passed the Commons by 153 to 80, but, when the King made it clear that any peer who voted in favour of the bill would be considered a personal enemy of the Crown, the Lords divided against Fox by 95 to 76.[24] George now felt justified in dismissing Fox and North from government and in nominating William Pitt in their place; at twenty-four years of age, the youngest British prime minister in history was appointed to office, apparently on the authority of the votes of 19 peers. Fox used his parliamentary majority to oppose Pitt's nomination, and every subsequent measure that he put before the House, until March 1784, when the King dissolved Parliament and, in the following general election, Pitt was returned with a substantial majority.

Nouns that denote a unit take singular verbs and pronouns: class, committee, crowd, family, group, herd, jury, orchestra, team. Some usage examples: The committee is meeting to set its agenda. The jury reached its verdict. A herd of cattle was sold. Team names and musical group names that are plural take plural verbs. The Yankees are in first place. The Jonas Brothers are popular. Team or group names with no plural forms also take plural verbs: The Miami Heat are battling for third place. Other examples: Orlando Magic, Oklahoma City Thunder, Utah Jazz. Many singular names take singular verbs: Coldplay is on tour. Boston is favored in the playoffs. The Cardinal is in the NCAA tournament. But some proper names that are plural in form take a singular verb: Brooks Brothers is holding a sale. PLURAL IN FORM: Some words that are plural in form become collective nouns and take singular verbs when the group or quantity is regarded as a unit. Right: A thousand bushels is a good yield. (A unit.) Right: A thousand bushels were created. (Individual items.) Right: The data is sound. (A unit.) Right: The data have been carefully collected. (Individual items.)

I want to know about the use of verb after percentage of collective nouns, e.g. 25% of the jury was/were in fovor of the indictment. 50% percent of the crowd was /were supporting our team. 34 % of the parliament was /were in favor of the bill.

Last night, Pfitzner Stadium was sold-out with 7,563 fans and a lot of media. Erika Crawford officially represented TalkNats, and I just blended in the crowd as a fan who was just there for a few innings. Part of the big crowd was drawn originally because of the $1 grandstand ticket promotion and the $1 hot dogs even before they learned that Stephen Strasburg would make a rehab start there last night as he returned from a nerve impingement in his right elbow.

It was revealed beforehand that Strasburg was only going to work a maximum of 5 innings and when he only threw 66 in the game he threw about 9 more in the bullpen to get to 75 pitches. The Nationals had a small staff at the game including Kyle Brostowitz from the Nationals media department and director of player development Mark Scialabba who is at Nats minor league games all of the time. Bill Gluva from the Boras Corporation was also in the crowd.

Early in an infectious disease epidemic, public health responses mainly rest on our capacity to separate infectious, exposed, and susceptible individuals. Yet, inconsistencies in pandemic preparedness plans and delays in implementing robust testing and contact tracing prohibited reliance on the isolation of infectious individuals and quarantine of exposed individuals to bring SARS-CoV-2 under control [23]. Given the progression to community transmission (where numerous cases are not linkable to transmission chains or clusters), many governments enacted lockdownsFootnote 5, stay-at-home orders, travel bans, curfews, and closing of workplaces, schools, and other community gathering spaces such as gyms and entertainment venues [25].

In the presence of widespread community transmission, regions reopening prematurely without a coordinated, robust plan will face COVID-19 resurgence. This can force societies to go back to general or targeted lockdowns after uncontrolled outbreaks, as repetitively happened in countries that underwent staggering rises in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths following unfettered reopening. Robust policies with continued monitoring, non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs), and plans to avert overwhelming healthcare systems are critical from the beginning of an epidemic to avoid catastrophic scenarios. Alert level systems, informed by the level of community transmission and impact of COVID-19, are useful tools for escalating or de-escalating restrictions based on their impact and the response goal.

During 2020, several regional economies were able to progressively resume to varying extents and worked to overcome logistical hurdles and implement combinations of preventive measures. However, controlling the spread of SARS-CoV-2 has proven challenging. Since December 2020, when the first reports of COVID-19 vaccinations outside clinical trials were published [102], the world has gained hope and seen the tangible benefits of vaccination. COVID-19 vaccines are a ground-breaking achievement that will help to end the pandemic [33]. However, the world will require complementary NPIs as long as a large share of the population is not vaccinated. The current global situation of more transmissible genetic variants of SARS-CoV-2 has raised concerns, but the remarkably high effectiveness of available vaccines is encouraging ([33, 103], Escandón K., Flocco G., Hodcroft E.B. et al., unpublished data). No effective SARS-CoV-2 antiviral is currently available.

Mass gatheringsFootnote 13 deserve discussion. The risk in mass gatherings is expected to come from unplanned, informal, unregulated, and unmitigated events or activities that lack consideration of risk mitigation measures [40, 139]. Several factors influence transmission in these settings [40, 139, 146, 147]: 1) the environment (i.e., outdoor or indoor), since it contributes ventilation; 2) the geographic scope of the event and the extent to which vulnerable or susceptible individuals may be present (e.g., local vs. international event, attendee ages); 3) event-specific behaviors that influence transmission (e.g., communal travel, indoor congregation in other venues, congregate accommodations, face-to-face vs. side-to-side arrangement, loud conversations, shouting, singing); 4) gathering size, density, duration, and attendee circulation; 5) preparedness to conduct rapid contact tracing in the event of an outbreak; and 6) the multilayered prevention approach adopted. In addition, the underlying transmission levels or infection rates in a community are likely to influence the impact of either permitting or prohibiting mass gatherings. As for outdoor gatherings, upon consideration of crowd density, size, duration, circulation, and preventive interventions, public health officials may balance and mitigate risk across different factors mentioned [40, 139]. That is, an increase in one risk factor may be offset or mitigated by decreasing other risk factors. Therefore, all mass gatherings will not generate equal risks of SARS-CoV-2 transmission and will not need homogenous mitigations [148]. Since mass gatherings may have sociocultural, economic, physical, and mental health implications, it is critical to consider the societal needs. For instance, Black Lives Matter protests in the USA were illustrative of the trade-offs offered by harm reduction. No evidence supported a growth in COVID-19 cases following the protests [66, 68], which may have been due to the outdoor environment and compensating behaviors such as the observed increase in stay-at-home and masking compliance during the protests. 041b061a72
