Crowds on all roads, and HGSS has an important message

first_imgSmart enough. And that this is not just a joke of the HGSS, but of important messages, shows the traffic accident that happened a few days ago on the Adriatic Highway.Source: Facebook HGSS From week to week, HAK warns of huge traffic jams on our roads, of course it is the “peak” of the season and traffic jams (although a mild word for the current situation on our roads) on our roads to and from the sea are something that has already become part part of the adventure. And the journey from point A to point B is part of the annual, right?Unfortunately, due to long-term growth based only on the growth of accommodation capacities, and not on the development of tourist destinations, from year to year we have increasing infrastructure problems in our tourist destinations, including our roads that simply cannot accommodate so many vehicles.The new mainland-Ciovo bridge doesn’t help either, because normally it’s just a short section with two lanes, and traffic jams happen before and after. All this is a consequence because we do not deal with tourism strategically and sustainably. How to expect the growth of arrivals and overnight stays, and at the same time we have not provided the prerequisites for the same, except for the accommodated capacity. But that is a broader topic for another discussion.But as we have a hundred people, a hundred surprises, so in abnormal situations, abnormal things happen, and so on our roads. A team from the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service (HGSS) warned of an abnormal thing in their already legendary way. And this is an opportunity to remind ourselves of some of the legendary messages and warnings for HGSS tourists.last_img read more

Many Gay Men Would Support ‘Home HIV Test’: Study

first_imgFRIDAY, Feb. 10 (HealthDay News) — Many gay men who regularly have risky sex would be willing to ask partners to use a new, rapid-result HIV test, a new study shows.HIV is the virus that causes AIDS.The tests, which use a mouth swab and detect HIV antibodies in less than 20 minutes, are currently used in testing clinics across the United States. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval of the tests for public use is pending, according to the researchers at the HIV Center at Columbia Psychiatry and the New York State Psychiatric Institute.The researchers interviewed 57 gay and bisexual men, aged 18 and older, who said they had multiple male partners and rarely or never used condoms. Most of the men said they liked the idea of using the test kits to screen sexual partners.The researchers also found that most of the men said they would likely ask partners to take an HIV test and might consider safe sex measures if the partner’s response raised doubts about his HIV status.The study was slated for online publication in February in the Journal of Sex Research.The tests do not detect the initial, acute stage of HIV infection that lasts for a few weeks, but “for men who are already having a high level of unprotected intercourse with multiple partners, access to a rapid HIV test that can be performed at home may prove to be a valuable harm-reduction tool,” principal investigator Alex Carballo-Dieguez, a clinical psychologist, said in a Columbia news release.The researchers noted that an HIV home test could also protect heterosexual people who have risky sex.YAHOO Health News Tweet Sharing is caring! 10 Views no discussions Sharecenter_img Share Share HealthLifestyle Many Gay Men Would Support ‘Home HIV Test’: Study by: – February 13, 2012last_img read more
