Illustrated maps were popular pieces of art decades ago Today, illustrated maps have made a comeback but they are now fully illustrated 2D or 3D maps in high resolution. Originally, the illustrated maps from Rabinky Art are hand drawn before they are incorporated with technology that allows them to be edited or altered to address future needs.
Meanwhile, public attention around the return of college football was focused on the risks faced by the student-athletes and fan attendance that could impact on their overall health. While programs are still being planned for footballs’ return this fall, the popular question is whether fans will be at the games and how many of them will be attending.
There have been instances of health risks coming from crowded sports stadiums. Last February, nearly 2,500 fans pf Spanish soccer club Valencia travelled to Italy to watch the Championships League match against Atlanta. Several weeks later, it was found out that that the event attended by 44,236 fans played a significant role in the coronavirus outbreaks in Spain. The superspreading sports event became known as Ground Zero.
According to epidemiologists and infectious disease experts that were interviewed by ESPN, college football could spread the coronavirus even with reduced fan attendance. In order to illustrate fan movement after the Saturday games, ESPN made a map using anonymized cell phone tracking data from X-Mode Social. The maps showed how fan dispersal differed based on regions and how far and concentrated the potential area of infection would be if fans gather again this fall.
Mapping starts 6 hours after kick-off in every game. The map will be updated in 6-hour increments over the subsequent 24 hours to determine which counties the fans returned to. A darker shade of red was used on the map show more densely populated counties had fans that attended the games. Even with limited capacities, the return of fans to the games can be potentially problematic.
In order to create an illustrated map, Rabinky Art requests clients to provide key pieces of information that are crucial to the map’s design. Photographs of high quality or renderings of buildings are required so that they can be drawn into the map.
The Covid-19 pandemic has forced the criminal lawyer in Toronto to adapt technology and paperless, electronic trials. Documents and statements of witnesses are stored inside tiny USB’s to be reviewed by judges and opposing counsel. Teleconferences have become the norm instead of lawyers attending hearings in court.
So many things have changed during the pandemic including the kind of crimes committed by people. In Seattle, the Bias Crime Unit of the police department is investigating crimes that target Asian Americans. Police are trying to identify a suspect in the May 16 attack on a couple walking on the sidewalk.
According to surveillance video, it appears to be a sudden attack on the couple. The video showed the suspect shoving the male victim and knocking off his glasses and face mask. The suspect also spat on the couple and told them that the pandemic was all their fault. Seattle police chief Carmen Best said that the crime was not only awful but very egregious.
Back in February, a joint statement was released by Asian Counseling and Referral Action to draw attention to the increasing bias and harassment against Asian American communities. In March, there were 9 incidents that targeted the Asian communities. Chief Best is encouraging victims of bias and harassment to call 911 for immediate response.
On the other hand, Kert Lin said that he was not satisfied with the police response when he reported racial slurs shouted against him during an outing in Seattle. In an interview, Lin said that it seems that there was no crime and that the man was exercising his first amendment rights.
According to California-based Asian Pacific Policy and Planning Council, their office has received more than 1,700 reports of coronavirus discrimination from Asian Americans all over the United States during the last 6 weeks. It is racism and people are being targeted.
If you have been charged with a crime, you can call the criminal lawyer in Toronto for legal representation. Even if the Covid-19 pandemic has changed so many things, victims of crime have the right to receive justice while suspects remain innocent until proven guilty.
