One of the least memorable or remarkable Welsh wins in recent times came at a vital time for Wayne Pivac as he stopped the rot of six defeats in a row by beating Georgia.
The next team wearing white to come here will be England – and Wales will need to buck their ideas up sharpish to get anywhere near their old foes on the evidence of their post-Covid performances.
The wild west-walian weather meant that the youthful backline, of which five starters were 25 and under, could not show their burgeoning talents.
But Callum Sheedy, who managed the conditions well, took eight points, Louis Rees-Zammit scored his first Welsh try and Rhys Webb took another as the set-piece improved markedly against the Georgians who have not yet scored a point in this tournament.
This inevitable victory is welcome for Pivac, but the acid Test comes against the English next week. He cannot afford to get badly burnt then.
With Justin Tipuric knocked out he might need to find an entirely new back-row, with Taulupe Faletau (knee) and Josh Navidi (concussion) still not yet fit.
Bringing in James Botham – the grandson of England cricket legend Ian – was a clever ploy by Pivac and Co.
The debutant deserved his early cap, but also it took so much of the focus away from Wales and how desperate they have been in recent weeks.
A win was crucial here against a Georgian side who had never beaten traditional ‘Tier 1’ opposition in 25 previous attempts. Defeat was never on the cards.
Pivac made 13 changes after the Ireland evisceration, as he had planned, handing debuts to Botham, Johnny Williams, Kieran Hardy and later Ioan Lloyd and used a backline he had largely discovered himself save for Liam Williams.
His new men rewarded him in the first half. Johnny Williams – who this time last year was recovering from testicular cancer – looks the man to straighten the Welsh line from No 12.
He carried hard into big Georgians to allow space for others. Sheedy barked to everyone, was the loudest player on the pitch, and looks the future.
For Rees-Zammit’s try Nick Tompkins carried near to the line to drag the men in for the 19-year-old to be afforded room on the left, and the Gloucester wing went over on the left.
That came 25 minutes in, 15 after Sheedy had hit a penalty, and the fly-half whacked over the wide conversion to take the Welsh lead to 10-0 at half-time.
Periodically in the first half a few ghostly renditions of the songs we know from Cardiff Test days drifted in with the wind – the Parc y Scarlets DJ clearly told to stick on the CD they sell in the gift shop to help rouse the team with no one here.
They did look better, albeit against vastly inferior opposition. The set-piece horror-show in Dublin was shored up by two wall-like men in Wyn Jones and Samson Lee – Pivac saying before he had picked them as Wales’ best two scrummagers.
There is a slightly outdated view of Georgia as the most formidable pack in the world; they might have been up there in years gone by, but having been torn to bits up front by Scotland, England and now with Wales winning penalties off them too those days are behind Los Lelos for now.
In the second-half Wales needed to kick on. It was a stodgy old night, though, with squalling rain dampening what was already a limp spectacle in these Covid times.
The pre-match puddle in the middle of the pitch became boggy as the game wore on, so maybe it was a night to kick goals, win and find the nearest rousing cup of cocoa afterwards.
Unfortunately for Wales Sheedy missed his next one – perhaps not used to the way the wind blows five different directions at once here – but took the next from in front.
Then after a typically electric break from Rees-Zammit he fed Tipuric and the captain was knocked out cold. To his credit referee Luke Pearce immediately stopped the game, and the flanker was later driven away on a motorised stretcher.
For the bad tackle Beka Saghinadze was yellow-carded and Rhys Webb, on for Hardy, took over the captaincy.
Webb scored at the end to seal it – the best bit being it meant the flames came on to warm everyone up.
For the four debutants it was a day to remember for the rest of their lives, but everyone else would hard-pressed to recall any of it come full-time.
The critically-acclaimed reboot of One Day at a Time has been cancelled yet again, though the show's producers and stars hope the third time is the charm.
The Latin-centric reboot of the hit 1970s and 1980s sitcom debuted on Netflix in 2017 and lasted for three seasons before it was canceled by the streamer, with Pop TV picking it up for the fourth season, which debuted in March.
Now Pop TV has officially canceled the show for a second time, though Variety reports that Sony Pictures Television is shopping it elsewhere, as the show's stars and creators react to the news on social media.
While the news is unfortunate for the One Day at a Time team, which has earned rave reviews throughout its four-season run, it's not all that surprising.
Just weeks before the fourth season debuted, Variety reported that Pop TV was moving away from original scripted programming and into IP controlled by the network's owner, ViacomCBS through their recent merger.
The network canceled original shows Flack, Florida Girls and Best Intentions, leaving just Schitt's Creek, in the midst of its final season, and One Day at a Time as the network's only original shows.
Season 4 of One Day at a Time debuted in March, though, due to COVID-19 restrictions, they could only produce six episodes.
The main cast, including Justina Machado, Todd Grinnell, Isabella Gomez, Marcel Ruiz, Stephen Tobolowsky and Rita Moreno, also lent their voices to an animated episode, which debuted in July.
The show was also given a big push by Pop TV, which simulcast the show on TV Land, with CBS also airing episodes sin October.
The series was created by Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce, following three generations of a Cuban-American family.
The family includes Penelope (Justina Machado), a single mom and military veteran, her two kids Elena (Isabella Gomez) and Alex (Marcel Ruiz) and Penelope's mother Lydia (Rita Moreno).
The show also stars Todd Grinnell as the building manager/owner Schneider and Stephen Toblowsky as Penelope's boss Dr. Leslie Berkowitz.
Creator/showrunner Gloria Calderon Kellett shared a news article about the cancellation, while holding out hope for the show on Twitter.
Co-creator Mike Royce added, 'So... yes. Much has changed at Viacom in the last year and unfortunately we won't be on Pop anymore. Thanks to everybody over there for the opportunity to do season 4. And guess what? We're still trying for season 5. What if #ODAAT was the first show ever on 3 networks?'
Actress Isabella Gomez mirrored Royce's sentiment, adding, 'Maybe third network’s the charm? Seriously, regardless of what happens, familia para siempre. And I’ll have a sappy post coming when we find out which way this goes. I love you guys. #ODAAT.'
Об этом на оперативном совещании сообщила начальник управления здравоохранения горсовета Мария Бойко.
По ее словам, сейчас в больнице на кислородной поддержке находится огромное количество пациентов - 28 человек в трех реанимациях и 60 человек на кислородных концентраторах и кислородных точках.
«Есть договоренность о временном приостановлении госпитализаций в ЦГКБ... Перерасход кислорода идет очень большой, чтобы не было каких-то чрезвычайных ситуаций, чтобы оборудование работало исправно, согласовано временное приостановление госпитализации больных», - заявила чиновница.
Новых пациентов с коронавирусом будут госпитализировать в городскую клиническую больницу № 1, районные и областные медицинские учреждения.
Заполненность коек больными или с подозрением на COVID-19 в ЦГКБ составляет 73%, в первой городской клинической больнице - 84%.
За минувшие сутки в городские больницы Ивано-Франковска с пневмониями госпитализировали 38 человек. В реанимации находится 32 пациента, 124 пациента получат кислородную поддержку. Всего в учреждениях находятся 454 пациента.
По словам Бойко, ситуация с коронавирусом в Ивано-Франковске ухудшается. За неполные четыре недели ноября выявили на 30% больше новых случаев инфицирования, чем в октябре. Аналогично растет смертность - если в октябре умерли 30 горожан, то в ноябре уже зафиксировано 58 летальных случаев.
В Ивано-Франковской области за минувшие сутки выявлено 530 новых случаев COVID-19. По состоянию на 24 ноября на Прикарпатье зарегистрировано 32 826 случаев коронавируса. Всего за время пандемии выздоровели 12 917 пациентов, умерли - 580.
На стационарном лечении находятся 1212 пациентов с COVID-19 и 283 с подозрением на коронавирус.
Bruno Tonioli 'will only receive around half' of his usual £250,000 Strictly Come Dancing salary this year after not appearing in person for any live shows, according to new reports.
The Italian judge, 65, was due to resume his position on the panel for the semi-final after completing the recent series of Dancing With The Stars, the US version of Strictly.
However, show bosses and Bruno decided it would be safer for him to remain in the US and continue his cameo role on Sunday night results show via satellite link up.
The veteran judge usually jets between London and Los Angeles to sit on the panel for both the long-running UK show as well as its US counterpart.
This year, that wasn't possible due to travel restrictions and the choreographer favoured the US version when forced to pick just one.
It means that he is reportedly facing a £125,000 pay cut after not appearing on the judging panel at all this series.
A source told The Sun: 'Much of Britain is working from home right now but Bruno is expected, where possible, to be there in person.
'He’s contributed less than he normally would with all of his Italian flamboyance and high- energy performances in the studio, so he was happy to take less than his usual wage.
'After all, it was his decision to focus on the American show while keeping his toe in the UK. There’s no hard feelings.'
Talking of the decision for Bruno to not return for the remainder of the series, a source close to the judge said: 'After much consideration, it's just too dangerous for Bruno. Strictly has already been hit so heavily by Covid...
'They didn't want to take the risk. Bruno loves the show and will watch as ever from the States and give his feedback on Sunday's show.'
It was also confirmed that Anton Du Beke will not be called up to replace Bruno on the judging panel for the remaining four weeks of the series, after he filled in for Motsi Mabuse.
Bruno was due to isolate for two weeks after returning from the US before making his comeback on the BBC1 series, yet the plan has been thwarted.
Current judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi, who returned to the panel this weekend following her own period of isolation after an urgent trip to Germany, will complete the series as a trio.
When it was reported in August that Bruno would make a comeback later in the series, insiders said BBC bosses were keen to get Bruno to the UK and hope that he could make a comeback for the final.
