“I know it’s been a rough couple of weeks, but I have to say, I have to give you a standing ovation,” she said after the pair’s Argentine tango. “That was incredible. We push you because we want you to reach your ultimate. Every line was amazing. Every lift. … Everything about it was amazing. Everything that we’ve been wanting from you was in this routine.”Carrie Ann Inaba and Artem Chigvintsev. ABC/ShutterstockFollowing the positive feedback, the former Bachelorette star, 35, and the DWTS pro, 38, ran over to the judge and gave her a hug. “She was fantastic! Choreography was incredible, she performed it with passion and heart,” Inaba told Us after the show. “Kaitlyn’s been a great dancer from day one. Great dancer. I’ve said it every week despite what some of the clips show. I actually have said it every week how good she is, but I’m always gonna push people on our show to be better. Dancing With the Stars is not about showing up great and staying at the same level. Dancing With the Stars is about growth and transformation and I don’t care how great you start, you still need to show us some sort of growth and evolution. And tonight, I mean, she was amazing. I’m so proud of her. And people that I think have great potential, I have a tendency to push a little harder because I know they can.”She continued: “As a female dancer, I tend to push women a little harder because I understand it from their perspective, so I know exactly what I’m pushing for because I can feel it from them that they’re so close to it. And I know it was hard and I know that they were frustrated but it happens all the time. I don’t take it personally. If I took things personally I couldn’t be a good judge! I have to not listen to what everybody’s saying about me because it’s not about me. I’m a judge. I’m there to help them.”- Advertisement – Inaba, who dated Chigvintsev until 2009 after meeting on the set of So You Think You Can Dance, previously opened up about the bullying she’s received.“I still get bullied.

I’m not about to change because you try to bully me. It only makes me stand stronger in my convictions and what I believe in.”The Canada native, meanwhile, addressed Inaba’s tough judging on a recent episode of her “Off the Vine” podcast, noting that she wants fans to stop being so rough on Inaba for being hard on her.“Carrie Ann is totally allowed her opinions. I’m allowed to not agree with them or feel hurt by them, but it doesn’t mean people need to go and bully on her,” Bristowe said this month. “I heard that she feels bullied and that makes me feel so terrible because I’ve been bullied so hard online … Don’t go bullying her because she’s being hard on me. That’s her decision and she’s a judge. That’s why she’s paid the big bucks to be a judge on that show, right?”Dancing With the Stars airs on ABC Mondays at 8 p.m. ET.Listen to Us Weekly’s Hot Hollywood as each week the editors of Us break down the hottest entertainment news stories! “I think it’s hysterical. You know what I love though? This is what I love about the Bachelor fans and Bachelorette fans. They can create a story around it!” Inaba, 52, told Us Weekly and other reporters following the Monday, November 9, episode. “And it’s weird because I totally understood what they were doing. They’re like, there’s jealousy there and there’s this and that because that’s what the Bachelor and Bachelorette is all about, right? It’s about creating stories about everybody. Look, I love Artem, I respect him, I love him and Nikki [Bella] together. I love that they just had their little baby Matteo. We’ve had Nikki on The Talk, I’m a huge fan. There’s nothing but love and I thought it was hysterical. So none of it bothers me. I know that people are passionate about Dancing With the Stars. They’re passionate about who they’re voting for. I love that. I will not stand for bullying of me or anyone. I will not. We’ve had enough of it in our country. I’m sick of it. I’m never gonna stand for that, I’m never gonna support it. But I am OK with passion and I am OK with discussion.”Inaba even has been responding to some critics over the past few days. “I got a lot of private messages about Artem and Kaitlyn and people that wanted to open up a dialogue. They weren’t calling names or bullying. I spent a lot of time writing to them. ‘Hey this is why, these are lifts, these are not allowed in this dance. I took off one point because they had a lift that first week then they also made a mistake and that’s usually a solid one point that comes off …’” she explained to Us. “And then Artem was passionate about what he wants, which I can appreciate. So you know, it’s OK. It’s passion. How you direct your passion though, not only here on Dancing With the Stars but in the world in general, we all need to be careful with and we need to check ourselves. Dialogue and trying to understand the other person’s point of view is very important to me. So I don’t appreciate people calling names and things like that. It’s not helpful. But am I interested in your perspective? Yes. Always. … But I gotta do my job! I’m a judge!”After weeks of harsh criticism about the couple’s routines, Inaba gushed over Bristowe and Chigvintsev’s Monday performance — and gave them a perfect 10.- Advertisement – Two sides to every story!

The software program, called CARVER+Shock, was released on Jun 15 and is available for download on the FDA’s Web site, according to an FDA press release. The software was developed by the FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) along with several collaborators, including Sandia National Laboratories, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service, the Institute of Food Technologists, the National Center for Food Protection and Defense, state officials, and industry representatives. “FDA’s goal in developing the CARVER+Shock software is to maximize protection of the American food supply,” said David Acheson, MD, the FDA’s assistant commissioner for food protection, in the press release. Effect: What measurable losses in production would stem from an attack? Recuperability: How well could a system recover from an attack? “CARVER helps industry think like an attacker so that it can identify any weak spots and put countermeasures into place,” Kautter said. Accessibility: How easily could a terrorist access a target? Jun 15 FDA press releasehttp://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/2007/ucm108934.htm Vulnerability: How easily could an attack be accomplished? The software itself doesn’t pose a security risk because the questions don’t reveal classified company information, Kautter said. However, he added that the assessment results should be considered sensitive information. Recognizability: How easily could a terrorist identify a target? Also, the tool incorporates a seventh attribute, the psychological or “shock” effects of an attack, the FDA statement said. For example, the psychological impact might be greater if a large number of deaths resulted or if the target had special historical or cultural significance. Jun 15 FDA consumer updatehttp://www.fda.gov/consumer/updates/carvershock061107.html Before the CARVER+Shock software was released, food processors relied on face-to-face risk assessments with FDA and/or USDA representatives that typically took 2 to 3 days and required as many as 30 people to answer all the questions, Donald Kautter Jr., acting supervisor of the food defense oversight team at the FDA, said in an FDA consumer report on the new software. Jun 26, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently released a new software tool to make it easier and quicker for food industry facilities to assess their risk of attacks involving biological, chemical, or radiological weapons. The computerized assessment generally takes less than a day and requires the participation of a small team from the food facility, the FDA report said. The program takes employees through more than 100 questions about their facilities and processes to identify vulnerable areas and project what type of attack would be the greatest threat. “What we’ve done is taken that face-to-face interaction and put it into a software program so that the questions and discussion are posed by the computer,” Kautter said in the report. “This will give more companies access to the tool.” The software is designed for use by all components of the food industry, from growers to retailers. “CARVER” is an acronym representing risk-assessment attributes that have been adapted from the US military: FDA CARVER+Shock software sitehttp://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm094560.htm See also: The new risk assessment tool is part of the FDA’s broader food protection strategy and follows the 2006 launch of the ALERT initiative, which is designed to raise industry awareness of food defense and preparedness issues, the FDA said. The CARVER+Shock software builds on the awareness by allowing a more formal and detailed risk assessment. Criticality: How would an attack impact public health and the economy?

At its 103rd session, the Government of the Republic of Croatia approved the candidacy for the organization of the World Rally Championship (WRC) in the Republic of Croatia in 2019 and 2020, which is the first precondition for the globally popular WRC to be held for the first time in Croatia. .Namely, the FIA and WRC Promotor condition the bringing of one WRC station with the active participation of state institutions in the project on several levels, of course to ensure quality performance and organization at the level required by the whole event. The WRC delegation recently spent three days in Croatia, and in addition to agreeing and scanning the potential route of the race, they also held a meeting with the Government of the Republic of Croatia.By the way, Croatia was approved for the WRC in 2018, but Turkey was faster, so in almost a week it obtained all the necessary permits and state guarantees and signed a contract with the WRC promoter for the end of September, which Croatian organizers hoped for. But now all the prerequisites for the day’s agreement are on the table, and the organizers want the WRC in Croatia to be organized in April, May, early June, late September or October 2019 or 2020.The World Rally Championship is watched by more than 700 million spectators annually, of which four million spectators watched 2016 annual WRC races along the track in 13, while the Media World Rally Championship is watched by 1350 accredited journalists, more than 12.000 hours of TV programs are produced. The WRC program is broadcast in 155 countries around the world.In the meantime, there is no need to worry about it. ”Cost-effectiveness studies prepared by the Faculty of Economics and Tourism from Pula, headed by prof. dr. sc. Robert Zenzerović, Cooperative for Ethical Financing from Zagreb and an abbreviated study Department of Economics and Sports Management of the Faculty of Kinesiology in Zagreb headed by Dr. sc. Sanela Škorić et al. Matom Bartoluciem from the Faculty of Economics in Zagreb, and based on data from other WRC races in the world, proves that this is a project of great benefit to the Republic of Croatia. In the most conservative calculations, the generated consumption would amount to 22 million euros. The direct profit for the state, only through VAT, is at least four million euros, while the indirect profit of the project through media effects is a huge 41 millioneuros.Official WRC data in Portugal are almost unbelievable. In 2016, the WRC race was watched live by 910.000 spectators (50% were foreigners; half of them from neighboring Spain). The direct impact on the Portuguese economy was a staggering € 67,6 million while the indirect effects were € 61,7 million. In terms of tourism, Portugal realizes more than 1.5 million overnight stays a year from the WRC alone!The WRC would definitely start in Istria and Kvarner, and the organizers want to organize the WRC in Croatia every few years. The Šibenik-Knin County Tourist Board has already expressed interest, while the organizers wish to one day bring the WRC to and from Slavonia, more precisely to Vukovar, Vinkovci and Osijek. According to the first information, the race would start in the Pula Arena, and after four days and 1.000 kilometers in Istria, it would end in Poreč, but the real negotiations are just beginning.In any case, the arrival of the WRC would be a great promotion of Croatia, and another global spectacle in Croatia.
