Cuts on: Causes, treatment, and home remedies

Causes, treatment, and home remedies

The penis is a very sensitive organ with only a thin layer of skin, which can make it prone to cuts and injuries. Friction, scratching, and simple accidents can all lead to a cut on the penis.

In this article, we discuss some of the potential causes of a cut on the penis. We also cover treatment, home remedies, and when to see a doctor.

Some people choose to trim or remove their pubic hair. Using a razor to shave pubic hair can sometimes cause accidental nicks and cuts to the groin area or penis.

A 2017 survey of adults in the United States found that about 25% of people who groom their pubic hair have injured themselves in the process. Male participants most often reported injuring the scrotum and penis.

Tips to reduce the risk of injuries while shaving pubic hair include:

  • using a clean, sharp razor
  • wetting the hair and skin thoroughly
  • using a shaving gel or cream
  • standing up while shaving and avoiding distractions

People who contract sexually transmitted infections (STIs) may develop blisters, sores, rashes, swelling, or general irritation on or around the penis. Sometimes, these lesions can look similar to cuts. Scratching or picking at irritated areas can also cause the skin to tear.

Common types of STI include:

Other symptoms of STIs in males can include:

  • painful urination
  • itching around the genitals or anus
  • unusual discharge from the penis or anus

People with symptoms of an STI should see a doctor or visit a sexual health clinic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that people who are sexually active consider going for regular STI tests.

The skin on the penis is quite thin. During prolonged or repetitive physical activities, the penis can rub against other parts of the body or tight clothing, which can lead to tears or cuts.

Example of activities that may irritate or injure the skin of the penis include:

  • running and jogging
  • sexual activities, including masturbation
  • exercises that involve large or repetitive movements
  • sports that involve sprinting or jumping

Cuts from friction can occur nearly anywhere on the penis. Some areas, such as the frenulum, are more likely to sustain these injuries. The frenulum connects the head of the penis to the shaft.

Candidiasis, which people often refer to as thrush, is a yeast infection that occurs due to the overgrowth of a fungus called Candida albicans. Although yeast infections are more likely to develop in the vagina, they can also affect the penis.

Symptoms of a yeast infection on the penis can include:

  • patches of red, irritated skin
  • itchiness or a burning sensation
  • white discharge under the foreskin, which may have an unpleasant smell

The red patches of irritation may sometimes resemble cuts. Scratching affected areas may also lead to small cuts or tears in the skin of the penis.

Factors that can increase the risk of a yeast infection on the penis include:

  • not drying the penis properly after washing
  • being overweight
  • having a condition that can weaken the immune system, such as HIV or diabetes
  • excessive sweating in the groin area

Balanitis refers to irritation of the head of the penis. Symptoms of balanitis can include:

  • red, itchy, swollen skin
  • painful urination
  • a buildup of a thick, smelly fluid called smegma
  • a tight foreskin

Scratching the irritated skin may lead to small cuts or tears on the penis.

Causes of balanitis can include:

  • not cleaning under the foreskin
  • bacterial or yeast infections
  • STIs
  • irritation from soaps and shower gels
  • irritation from skin conditions, such as psoriasis and eczema

The treatment for a cut on the penis usually depends on the underlying cause. For example, a doctor may prescribe an antibiotic or antiviral medication to treat an STI. For a yeast infection, they may recommend using an antifungal cream or oral drug.

Doctors may also prescribe medicated ointments or creams to help relieve itchiness and irritation.

For people with genital warts, a doctor may recommend a procedure to remove them, such as laser surgery, electrosurgery, or cryotherapy.

A person can treat minor cuts on the penis at home by washing the area with clean water and soap. However, it is important to avoid getting soap in the cut, as this may cause pain or irritation.

If necessary, a person can wrap the cut in a soft, clean bandage. They may also need to avoid sexual activity until the wound heals fully.

Tips for preventing cuts on the penis include:

  • washing the penis regularly and drying it thoroughly afterward
  • wearing comfortable, well-fitted, and appropriate underwear during sports and exercise
  • using a condom during sexual activities
  • using a lubricant during sexual intercourse
  • keeping the penis moisturized

People with symptoms of an STI should see a doctor or visit a sexual health clinic. It is also best to consult a doctor for cuts that do not begin to heal after a few days.

A person should seek prompt medical attention for:

  • painful or difficult urination
  • large cuts or cuts that bleed excessively
  • blood in the urine
  • swollen or painful testicles
  • severe pain
  • pain that gets worse or does not get better

Cuts on the penis can occur easily due to friction, scratching, or accidents. Lesions from STIs and other infections can sometimes also resemble cuts.

A person should see a doctor for cuts that are large, do not heal, or bleed excessively. People with symptoms of an STI should also seek medical treatment.

Cuts and Wounds of the Mouth and Lips

Children often get minor cuts and wounds to the mouth and lips while playing, climbing, or joining in sports activities. Most of these injuries can be handled at home with simple first aid treatment. The gums, tongue, and lips have a lot of blood supply. When cuts happen, these areas may bleed a lot. These areas also tend to heal quickly and are less likely to need stitches than other parts of the body.

First aid for shallow cuts and wounds

To take care of cuts and wounds: 

  • Calm your child and let him or her know you can help.

  • Apply pressure with a clean cloth or bandage for several minutes to stop bleeding.

  • Wash your hands well.

  • If the wound is on the lips or outside area of the mouth, wash it well with soap and water once it has stopped bleeding. Do not scrub the wound. Remove any dirt particles from the area and let the water from the faucet run over it for several minutes. A dirty cut or scrape that is not well cleaned can cause scarring. Then:

    • Apply an antiseptic lotion or cream.

    • Give your child an ice pop or ice cube to suck on to help reduce bleeding and swelling.

    • Check the area each day and keep it clean and dry.

    • Don’t blow on the wound, as this can cause germs to grow.

    • Use a sunscreen (sun protection factor, or SPF, at least 15 or greater) on healed cuts and wounds to help prevent scarring.

  • If the wound is inside the mouth, rinse the area well with cool water for several minutes. Remove any dirt particles from the area. Then:

  • Even small cuts on the lips may cause a visible difference in the border or outline of the lips. These wounds may need stitches to keep the borders even and reduce the possibility of scars. Cuts that happen in the corner of the mouth where the upper and lower lips come together can have very severe bleeding.

  • Cuts inside the mouth, even if they appear large, often heal on their own without the need for stitches. 

  • Bruises, blisters, or swelling on the lips caused by injury may be treated by sucking on ice pops or ice cubes or by applying a cold pack to the area every 1 to 2 hours for 10 to 15 minutes for the first 24 hours.

When should I get immediate medical attention for my child?

Your child’s healthcare provider will talk with you about treatment for cuts and wounds of the mouth that need more than minor treatment at home. In general, get your child quick medical attention for cuts and wounds of the mouth that are:

  • Bleeding and do not stop after 5 to10 minutes of direct pressure. If the bleeding is profuse, hold pressure for 5 to 10 minutes without stopping to look at the cut. If the cloth becomes soaked with blood, put a new cloth on top of the old cloth. Do not lift the original cloth. Keep in mind that facial wounds often bleed heavily, even under normal circumstances.

  • Deep or longer than 1/2 inch

  • Large and on the face

  • Caused by a puncture wound or dirty or rusty object

  • Embedded with debris, such as dirt, stones, or gravel

  • Ragged or have separated edges

  • Caused by an animal or human bite

  • Extremely painful or if you suspect a fracture or head or bone injury

  • Showing signs of infection, such as increased warmth, redness, swelling, or fluid leaking

  • A cut that goes from the inside of the mouth through to the outside

  • A cut that goes through the border or outline of lip

Also get your child medical care if:

  • Your child has not had a tetanus shot within the past 5 years, or if you are unsure when your child’s last tetanus shot was given

  • You are concerned about the wound or have any questions

Preventing mouth injuries

To prevent mouth injuries in children:

  • Teach your child never to walk or run while holding an object in his or her mouth.

  • Teach your child not to suck or chew on hard, sharp, or pointed objects, such as pencils.

  • Have your child wear a mouth guard for sports activities that could cause injury.

How to Treat Accidental Knife Cuts in the Kitchen

Getting a cut in the kitchen is both the worst and best place to break the skin. Worst because the uncooked food is nearly always covered in bacteria. Best because soap and water are nearby.

If you cut yourself during food preparation, infection is your worst enemy. Luckily, soap and water are all you need to clean a wound, even a wound covered in bacteria.

Is It an Emergency?

Whether it’s an emergency or not depends on how long, how deep and where the cut is. First, let me say that finger cuts are almost never life-threatening.

When talking about emergencies at the finger level, we are more worried about the loss of function or the loss of an entire finger. Larger cuts—across the palm, for example, or cutting off (amputating) multiple fingers—do have the potential of being deadly.

If the bleeding is severe (not just oozing) or blood is squirting, then immediately take steps to control bleeding and call 911. Also, if you’ve amputated any part of a finger, call 911. Both of those are considered real emergencies.

You most likely are not going to die from a finger laceration, but time is essential for the survival of the finger.

If It Is Not an Emergency

If the blood is oozing from the cut, then follow these steps:

  1. Wash with soap and water. There are all kinds of disinfectant products out there, but nothing works better than plain old soap and warm water.
  2. Encourage the blood to ooze out of the cut for a few minutes. As long as the blood isn’t pouring out like a garden hose (see the part about emergencies above), then you should squeeze out a little extra. Blood oozing from the inside to the outside helps to flush out any bacteria that can cause infection. Squeeze out the blood under running water over the sink.
  3. Control bleeding. Be sure to wash it first! You don’t want to wash the site after you stop bleeding because that will wash away the scab and start the bleeding over again. Plus, if you’re going to squeeze out a few extra drops, you’ll need to be done with that before you make it stop.
  4. If the person with the cut feels weak or dizzy, call 911 and treat for shock. It’s always better to be safe rather than sorry, but it’s still probably not life-threatening. Some folks will pass out simply from the pain or the sight of blood. And before they pass out, they feel weak or dizzy. Have them lie down before they fall down.

After the Bleeding Stops

Once the bleeding has stopped and the wound is clean, you can dress it with an adhesive bandage. After you but a bandage over it, put a glove on that hand if you still have food prep to do. Use an exam glove or a plastic serving glove.

Don’t put any antibiotic ointments or creams (such as Neosporin) on the cut until you are done in the kitchen.

If the cut is a centimeter or longer and you can see tissue below the skin, it may need stitches. One way to test it is to pull the edges apart. If you can, then the cut is probably worthy of a trip to the emergency room or urgent care center.

Otto’s Steak Chart: 12 Beef Cuts You Should Know

Beef is one of humankind’s favorite dishes since the pre-historic times. Today, it is still one of the most consumed types of meat. But what are the different cuts of beef on the steak chart and where do they come from? What is the best steak and what are its characteristics? Don’t worry, Otto know steak and how to grill the perfect steak. It starts with knowing the quality beef cuts and ends with grilling on a quality steak grill. The types and names of beef cuts vary – not only between countries but sometimes even between butchers. Otto’s steak chart presents 12 cuts of beef everyone should know.

Otto’s Steak Chart

Skirt Steak

The outer and the inner skirt steak are cut from the beef’s diaphragm. They are both not particularly tender but very tasty. The outer skirt steak is more tender and has much more of an intense flavor than the inner one.

Brisket Beef

Brisket Beef comes from the chest and is divided by a layer of fat. Due to its long fibers, it needs to be cooked very slowly, e.g. for corned beef, pastrami or Texas-style BBQ.

Flat Iron Steak

The name of this rather thin cut comes from its characteristic iron-like shape. This cut comes from the front shoulder and the large strip of sinew in the middle is usually removed. Then, this cut of meat is usually divided into two fillets.

Tomahawk Steak

The tomahawk steak is a very manly cut. It is marbled, moist and has an intense flavor thanks to its intact rib bone. The cut is a bone-in rib-eye steak from the front rib of the beef. The thickness of the cut depends on the thickness of the bone. A tomahawk steak is normally so big that you can easily feed two or more people from it. Fun fact: the name of the cut comes from its characteristic shape, which looks like an Indians’ tomahawks.

Rib-Eye Steak

The rib-eye steak comes from the front rib and is a typical American cut. It is composed of four muscle strings. The chunk of fat in the middle is often described as its key characteristic, but in fact, the name comes from one of the four muscle ligaments which looks like an eye.




Entrecôte is the French version of the American rib-eye cut. Like the rib-eye, it is composed of four muscle strings, which enclose an aromatic hunk of fat. It is hard to distinguish the two cuts.

T-Bone Steak

The T-bone steak is a true classic. It is characterized by its T-shaped bone, which separates the strip and the tenderloin muscles. This most popular steak cut comes from the short loin across the spine. Compared to the porterhouse cut, it is considered the less premium cut as it has a smaller piece of fillet – this is obviously a question of taste.

Porterhouse Steak

The porterhouse steak is the same cut as the T-bone and has the same characteristic T-shaped bone. It’s cut from the far back containing a larger portion of filet mignon. For many steak lovers it is the perfect cut as it combines an aromatic strip steak and a tender fillet. In Italy, the cut is called Bistecca alla Fiorentina and grills to perfection on a quality 1500F steak grill.

Sirloin Steak

The sirloin steak comes from the hip of the animal. It is not particularly tender nor tasteful. Therefore, it is often combined with prawns and served as Surf n‘Turf.

Filet Mignon

Filet mignon is one of the most popular and expensive cuts from the steak chart because it is particularly tender. It is cut from the long, cylindrical muscle, the tenderloin, which runs below the spine from the mid-body to the hind leg of the animal. As you take cuts toward the front of the animal, the filet mignon gets thinner. This is why the portion of filet mignon is smaller in the T-Bone cut than in the Porterhouse cut which comes from further back in the animal. Filet mignon contains only a little fat and shows hardly any marbling. Therefore, its flavor is less intense than that of more fatty cuts. It is used also for carpaccio. The thickest part of the tenderloin from the very back of the beef is cut around 8 cm thick to make Chateaubriand. It is classically served for two with béarnaise sauce.

Rump Steak

Rump steak comes from the rear part of the hip and the same muscle as the sirloin. It is well-marbled and has a thick strip of fat, making it particularly flavorful. It has a thick lining of fat which contributes to its desireable taste and is a great cut for any dish, especially for ramen.

Flank Steak

The Flank Steak comes from the lower belly of the animal. It is a large, flat muscle with long fibers and little fat which makes it a little bit chewy. Regardless, it is a popular favorite from the steak chart. It is mostly marinated, grilled and cut against the fiber into thin slices.

Blue Harvest – The 6 Common Cuts Of Fish

Like beef or pork, there are many different cuts of fish. Some of these cuts go under different names or are specific to a certain species of fish. Because of this, it can be difficult to know which cuts of fish you should look for when eating in a restaurant or preparing a new seafood recipe at home. Here are the 6 most common cuts of fish with some tips on how prepare each.

1. Fillet

A fillet is the meat cut from the sides of the fish. There are three types of fillets: whole, v-cut and j-cut with the latter two being the most popular. With both cuts, the pin bone is removed. In a j-cut, the nape – a small, thin, fatty piece of meat on the lower side of the fillet – has also been removed. Fillets from larger fish can be cut further into portions. The parts of the fillet that are left over are called pieces or “off-cuts,” which are just as good as the loins, but slightly less uniform. Fillets are extremely versatile cuts that can be seasoned, marinated, baked, fried and sautéed, and depending on the species, can be found skin-on and skin-off.

2. Butterfly Fillet

Commonly used for small freshwater fish, a butterfly fillet is essentially two fillets attached by skin that when spread out, take on the shape of a butterfly. This cut is ideal for pan frying or baking.

3. Loin

There are two types of loins – “natural” fillet loins from small and medium-sized fish and “cut” loins taken lengthwise across the backs of large fish like tuna, swordfish and shark. Whether “natural” or “cut”, loins are prime cuts of thick and flavorful meat without the waste of skin or bones. Loins can be sold whole or cut into large pieces such as medallions, and are great grilled, baked, or sautéed.

4. Steaks

A steak is a crosswise cut made perpendicular to the spine. Generally made from larger fish such as salmon, tuna, swordfish and mahi-mahi. With a steak cut, the vertebrae, skin and bones are left intact. A very popular cut for grilling, pan-frying, broiling or baking.

5. Tail

The backend of the fish, closest to the tail. Normally cut and sold bone-in. Very flavorful and best seasoned and roasted.

6. Whole Fish

While whole fish may not be a cut, it is still a very popular way to prepare fish. Whole fish can be purchased either “in the round” with the head, tail and viscera still intact, or “gutted,” which means the viscera has been removed but the head is intact. Whole fish that has been “gutted” can be seasoned or stuffed and make for a striking presentation.

Blue Harvest offers a variety of fresh and frozen groundfish, including haddock, ocean perch and Atlantic pollock in a range of different cuts. To learn more, visit our products page.

Skin cuts and abrasions – Better Health Channel

Skin is the largest organ of the human body. It is soft to allow movement, but tough enough to resist breaking or tearing. It varies in texture and thickness from one part of the body to the next. It consists of two main layers – the epidermis and the dermis.

The epidermis refers to the surface layer and is made of several sheets of skin cells. The dermis lies underneath and consists of elastic fibres (elastin), for suppleness, and protein fibres (collagen) for strength. Sebaceous glands, hair follicles, nerves and blood vessels are found in the dermis.

The two broad categories of skin wounds include abrasions and incised wounds.

First aid for abrasions

An abrasion means that the surface layers of the skin (epidermis) has been broken. Thin-skinned bony areas (like knees, ankles and elbows) are more prone to abrasions than thicker, more padded areas. The scraped skin of an abrasion can contain particles of dirt.

First aid treatment includes:

  • Clean the wound with a non-fibre shedding material or sterile gauze, and use an antiseptic such as Betadine. If there is embedded dirt, Savlon may be used as it contains an antiseptic and a surfactant to help remove debris. Rinse the wound after five minutes with sterile saline or flowing tap water.
  • Don’t scrub at embedded dirt, as this can traumatise the site even more.
  • Cover the cleaned wound with an appropriate non-stick sterile dressing.
  • Change the dressing according to the manufacturer’s instructions (some may be left in place for several days to a week). If you reapply antiseptic, wash it off after five minutes and then redress the wound.

First aid for incised wounds

Incised wounds are caused by sharp objects, such as knives or shards of glass, slicing into the skin. Depending on the injury, underlying blood vessels can be punctured, leading to significant blood loss. A severed artery is a medical emergency, because the muscular action of this blood vessel will pump the entire blood supply out of the wound in just a few minutes.

First aid treatment for severe bleeding includes:

  • Remove clothing around the site for easier access.
  • Apply pressure directly to the wound with your hands to stem the blood flow.
  • Cover the wound with a sterile dressing, if possible, and continue to apply direct pressure (bandage firmly).
  • Try to raise the injured area above the level of the person’s heart.
  • Don’t remove existing dressings if they become saturated with blood, but instead add fresh dressings over the top.
  • Seek urgent medical attention. You may need to call an ambulance if you cannot stop the bleeding, are feeling faint, sweaty or dizzy.

Tetanus-prone wounds

Some wounds are more likely to encourage the growth of tetanus bacteria than others, unless the person is immunised against tetanus. If it is more than five years since your last dose, you may need a booster. You should see your doctor without delay.

Stages of healing

The body begins repairing a wound immediately and the process may continue for days, weeks, months or even years, depending on the injury.

The basic stages of healing include:

  • The body takes action to maintain a normal state. Blood vessels to the wound constrict, reducing blood loss. Blood platelets gather at the site to form a clot.
  • Once the clot has formed, the blood vessels dilate, allowing maximum blood flow to the site. This causes inflammation. White blood cells start cleaning the site of bacteria, micro-organisms and other foreign agents.
  • New layers of collagen are laid at the site. Capillaries are formed to service the new skin tissue.
  • Contraction occurs at the edges of the wound to reduce the size of the wound.
  • Surface skin cells migrate from one side of the wound to the other, covering the wound with cells to form the new skin.
  • Depending on the injury, the site is left with a scar. Generally, scar tissue isn’t as strong as undamaged skin.

Treatment for cuts and abrasions

Some wounds are too large for the body to seal without help. Your doctor will decide whether or not a wound requires stitching or gluing.

General suggestions to take care of a stitched wound include:

  • Keep the site dry and clean. It may be covered with an occlusive thin film dressing, which is waterproof and protective.
  • Only apply lotions or ointments to the wound if instructed to do so by medical staff.
  • Try not to exert yourself, as physical activity may cause the site to bleed.
  • Seek medical advice immediately if the site starts to produce pus, swell or exude a disagreeable odour.

Factors influencing wound repair

Traumatised skin heals at different rates, depending on individual and environmental factors, which include:

  • the person’s general state of health
  • age – older skin repairs itself at a slower rate than younger skin
  • the functioning of the immune system
  • dietary factors – skin needs proper nutrition
  • external temperature and weather conditions
  • stress on the injury site, such as friction
  • whether or not the wound becomes infected
  • smoking and some drugs (discuss with doctor or chemist)
  • pre-existing medical conditions, such as some types of vascular disease.

Where to get help

  • Your doctor
  • Casualty department of your nearest hospital
  • In an emergency, always call 000 for an ambulance.

Choosing the specified classification eliminates or significantly reduces the accounting inconsistency

B4.1.29. The measurement of the financial asset or financial liability and the classification of the recognized changes in its value are determined based on the classification of the related item and whether the item is part of a classified hedging relationship. These requirements may lead to inconsistencies in the application of measurement or recognition principles (sometimes referred to as an “accounting mismatch”) where, for example, if a financial asset is not classified as at fair value through profit or loss, the financial asset will be classified as subsequently measured at fair value, and a liability that the entity considers to be related to such an asset will be measured at amortized cost (without recognizing changes in fair value).In such circumstances, an entity may conclude that its financial statements will provide more relevant information if both the asset and the liability are classified as measured at fair value through profit or loss.

B4.1.30. The examples below show when this condition can be met. In all cases, an entity is free to use this condition to designate financial assets or financial liabilities as at fair value through profit or loss at its discretion only if the principle in paragraph 4 is met.1.5 or 4.2.2 (a):

(a) the entity has insurance contract liabilities whose measurement includes current information (as permitted by paragraph 24 of IFRS 4) and financial assets that the entity considers associated with such liabilities and which would otherwise be measured at amortized cost.

(b) the entity has financial assets, financial liabilities, or both financial assets and financial liabilities that have a common risk, such as interest rate risk, that causes opposite changes in their fair value that tend to offset.However, only part of the instruments would be measured at fair value through profit or loss (for example, only derivatives or instruments classified as held for trading). It may also be the case that the requirements for hedge accounting are not met, for example, because the hedge effectiveness requirements set out in paragraph 6.4.1 are not met.

(c) the entity has financial assets, financial liabilities, or both financial assets and financial liabilities that have a common risk, for example, interest rate risk that causes opposite changes in their fair value that tend to offset, and criteria for The entity does not designate these financial assets or financial liabilities as a hedging instrument because they are not measured at fair value through profit or loss.In addition, in the absence of hedge accounting, there is a significant mismatch in the recognition of profit or loss. For example, an entity financed a specific group of loans by issuing marketable bonds, and changes in the fair value of loans and bonds tend to offset. If, in addition to this, an entity regularly buys and sells bonds, but rarely buys and sells loans, if at all, accounting for loans and bonds at fair value through profit or loss removes the timing mismatch that would otherwise arise. in connection with the valuation of both loans and bonds at amortized cost and the recognition of profit or loss on each repurchase of the bond.

(clause B4.1.30 as amended by of amendments , approved by Order of the Ministry of Finance of Russia dated August 26, 2015 N 133n)

(see the text in the previous edition )

B4.1.31. In cases similar to that described in the previous paragraph, the classification at initial recognition of financial assets and financial liabilities that would otherwise be measured differently as financial assets and financial liabilities measured at fair value through profit or loss, can eliminate or significantly reduce inconsistencies in the application of valuation or recognition principles and provide more relevant information.For practical purposes, an entity is not required to concurrently enter into all transactions in assets and liabilities that give rise to inconsistencies in the application of measurement or recognition principles. A reasonable time gap is permitted, provided that each transaction is classified as at fair value through profit or loss on initial recognition, and that at that point the entity considers all remaining transactions probable.

B4.1.32. If the classification of only part of the financial assets and financial liabilities giving rise to a mismatch as measured at fair value through profit or loss does not eliminate or significantly reduce the mismatch and, therefore, is more relevant information, then make such a classification. not allowed. At the same time, it is allowed to classify only a part of a certain number of similar financial assets or similar financial liabilities if this leads to a significant reduction (possibly even more than all other permitted classification methods are able to provide).For example, suppose an entity has a certain number of similar financial liabilities totaling CU100 and a certain number of similar financial assets totaling CU50 but measured using a different basis. An entity can significantly reduce the measurement mismatch if, on initial recognition, it classifies as at fair value through profit or loss all assets, but only part of the liabilities (for example, individual liabilities totaling CU45).e.). However, since only an entire financial instrument can be classified as measured at fair value through profit or loss, in the example above, an entity is required to classify one or more liabilities in this manner. It cannot classify in relation to a single component of the liability (for example, changes in value attributable to only one type of risk, such as changes in the benchmark interest rate) or to any share (i.e.i.e. percentage) of the obligation.

90,000 Research: digitalization of production reduces wages

Tales that someday a robot will replace a person turned out to be a reality. In the United States, over 40 years, due to the introduction of technology, workers engaged in manual labor have reduced wages by 15%. At the same time, many jobs may disappear altogether. What professions are under threat, “Gazeta.Ru “.

AI, automation and technology have become a major contributor to income inequality in the United States, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), based on data from 1980 to 2020, writes The Forbes.

According to the bureau, many workers who were engaged in manual labor were either completely replaced by automated equipment, or their wages were cut by about 15%.

At the same time, white collar incomes continued to grow steadily.

“The real earnings of a person without higher education are now 15% lower than in 1980,” the paper says.

Earlier, one of the reports presented at the World Economic Forum [WEF] stated that a new generation of intelligent machines and advances in artificial intelligence and robotics could destroy a significant proportion of existing jobs, namely 85 million jobs in 26 countries by 2025.

In potential danger are: secretaries, auditors, administrative manager and consultants.

For example, according to a research report by Wells Fargo, robots will eliminate 200,000 jobs in the banking industry over the next 10 years. And even nurses and programmers can be replaced with a high-tech machine.

“We talk a lot about autopilot and stuff like that, but AI can even program,” Twitter creator Jack Dorsey said in the Yang Speaks podcast.

Thus, this trend could negatively affect all classes of workers who perform routine repetitive activities.

“Workers who specialize in tasks that can be automated will feel more wage declines,” the report says.

The study also noted that a similar trend could change the structure of the US economy, which could potentially create increased demand in other industries and specialties.

Jobs are “transforming” rather than disappearing. Roughly speaking, if a robot takes the place of a car assembler, then a position should appear that provides for the maintenance and repair of this robot.

Thus, in order to remain in demand in the labor market and to be able to do what the machine cannot do, people will have to master new skills and constantly take advanced training courses.

So, data analysts, scientists, specialists in artificial intelligence and machine learning, process automation and information security will be in special demand.According to the WEF, human skills such as critical thinking, flexibility, problem-solving ability and a desire for knowledge will be especially needed.

At the same time, the robotization of some professions has reached Russia. So, in 2015, Yandex announced the creation of a special news agency, in which materials will be written with special algorithms. In 2019, the introduction of artificial intelligence in Sberbank led to the reduction of employees who were engaged in simple solutions, as a result of which about 70% of middle managers left the bank.Now the unmanned industry is actively developing, which indicates the imminent appearance of a taxi without a driver.

“This is really how it happens: artificial intelligence, technology, robotics are gradually replacing humans from different positions. And this did not just happen now – for many decades, a technical revolution took place, when machine tools, machines, and then computer technology replaced man. Where yesterday there were 10 employees doing one job, now a technician and one engineer or programmer are employed.This is a normal consequence of the development of technologies, about which a lot has been written and talked about for several years already, ”says Artem Deev, head of the analytical department at AMarkets.

According to him, under attack, first of all, are the professions associated with the performance of repetitive functions – telephone operators, secretaries, working personnel, or unskilled employees. In the near future, accountants, realtors, notaries may also no longer be needed.

“According to various forecasts, in the next one or two decades, about 10% of jobs can be replaced by robotics or special programs.But at the same time, the demand for human labor associated with the maintenance of such equipment, with the training of machines, with the programming and development of AI, will grow. Specialists will be in demand who can work at the intersection of different professions, but in combination with knowledge of technologies – bioengineers, agricultural engineers, programmers of narrow specializations. The demand for creative professions will grow, since AI will easily replace a person in everything related to technology, but it is unlikely to be able to create something new, where not only intelligence is needed, but also a flight of thought, a breakthrough, ”predicts Deev.

Mark Sherman, Managing Partner at B&C Communications Agency, noted that companies will actively seek to robotize production, and this should stimulate people to learn new skills.

“We are also seeing the emergence of new jobs and the extinction of old ones. The rapid development of online commerce has led to a great demand for couriers. Statistics, including for Russia, show that the demand for couriers is quite high. It is obvious from the employer that it is necessary to invest in the delivery service … On the other hand, unmanned vehicles are being actively tested now, so the driver’s profession may soon lose its relevance.First there was Uber, now we are on a new level. In general, the employer can be understood – it is easier for him to invest in artificial intelligence, which is controlled by the program, than to hire workers with all the attendant and associated risks, including accidents at work, insurance and other costs, ”Sherman said.

Today it became known about the reduction of Aeroflot flights from Moscow to Ufa and back to one per day.It is reported that the new schedule will take effect from June 1. The Ministry of Transport of Bashkiria and the administration of the international airport “Ufa” confirmed this information.

“According to the approved long-term development strategy of the Aeroflot group, flights on the Moscow-Ufa-Moscow line will be redistributed in favor of the subsidiary Pobeda airline, thus, the departure of Aeroflot, which is scheduled for early summer (1 frequency remains), will not affect according to the indicators of the airport “Ufa”, the vacated slots will be fully replaced by other carriers “, – commented in the Ministry of Transport of the republic.

These changes will not affect the number of flights from Ufa to the capital of the country, the department assured:

“The number of flights to Moscow and St. Petersburg will even increase. During the spring-summer navigation from Ufa to Moscow it will be possible to fly on the flights of Pobeda Airlines four times a day, S7 – four times a day. Utair has planned three flights a day. Aeroflot and North Wind will operate one flight a day. Pobeda Airlines will operate flights daily from June 1 to Sheremetyevo airport three flights a day, departing from Ufa at 08:00.05, 19.50, 23.10 (in June), and from July a flight at 14.30 will be added ”.

Czech Foreign Minister Jakub Kulhanek stated that the expulsion of 18 Russian diplomats did not endanger the work of the Russian Embassy in Prague (pictured)

The Russian Embassy in Prague should reduce its staff to the number of Czech diplomats remaining in Moscow.The Czech Republic previously expelled 18 diplomats and announced the involvement of Russian special services in the 2014 explosion. Moscow expelled 20 diplomats – and the Czech Republic issued an ultimatum, demanding their return.

“The Russian Embassy must cut staff by the end of May,” said the new head of the Czech Foreign Ministry, Jakub Kulganek.

Later he specified that 63 employees of the Russian embassy would be expelled.

Earlier it was reported that five Czech diplomats and 19 technical employees remained in Moscow, and 22 diplomats and 48 technical employees could potentially be expelled from the Russian embassy.The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic specified that seven diplomats and 25 technical and administrative staff should remain in the embassies of both countries.

Prague Ultimatum

The night before, Kulganek said that Russia “must allow all expelled diplomats to return to the Czech embassy in Moscow until noon tomorrow.” He told about this to Russian Ambassador Alexander Zmeevsky.

On Thursday afternoon, the minister said that Prague had not received an answer.”The Russian Federation did not give an answer until noon. We are limiting the number of diplomats in the Russian embassy to the level of representation in our embassy in Moscow,” the Seznam Zpravy portal quotes Kulganek (Interfax translation).

Later on Thursday, it became known that Slovakia was expelling three employees of the Russian embassy. This was announced by Prime Minister Eduard Heger. According to him, Slovakia acted in solidarity with the Czech Republic. The diplomats were asked to leave within a week.

How Moscow responded

The Kremlin responded to the ultimatum put forward by Prague the day before in the spirit that one shouldn’t talk to Russia like that.“It was precisely today in the [annual] message that President [Vladimir] Putin spoke about the futility of talking to us in the style of demands,” said Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for the Russian president.

“Prague has embarked on the path of destroying relations. The answer will not be long in coming,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova commented on the demand to radically reduce the number of employees of the embassy in Prague.

Czech Ambassador to Moscow Vitezslav Pivonka has arrived at the Russian Foreign Ministry, Interfax reports.The ambassador spent about half an hour on Smolensk Square. After the meeting, he told reporters that “for now” he would continue to work in Moscow. Pivonka also said that he had received information from the Russian Foreign Ministry about retaliatory measures.

Later it became known what these measures were: Russia also demanded “to reduce the number of members of the Czech Embassy in Moscow, taking into account the significant disparity in the category of those hired on the spot” – that is, employees with Russian citizenship. Zakharova said that most of the employees of the Czech Embassy were Russian citizens.

Regarding the decision of Slovakia, she said: “We are deeply disappointed by the unfriendly actions of Bratislava, which decided to show pseudo-solidarity with Prague on a trumped-up case. Our response will not be long in coming.”

Boshirov and Petrov again

On Friday, April 17, the Czech Republic announced the expulsion of 18 Russian diplomats suspected of working for two Russian special services – the GRU and the SVR.

As Prime Minister Andrei Babiš said at the time, there are reasonable suspicions that agents of these special services were involved in the explosion of an ammunition depot in the village of Vrbetice near the town of Zlín, which took place in 2014 and killed two people.

In turn, the Czech police on Friday asked for help in finding Russians Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov in connection with the investigation of “circumstances related to serious criminal offenses.”

Police tweeted a photo of the same men who were shown by British police in 2018 as suspects of the Skripal poisoning. Czech police did not directly link them to the 2014 incident, but gave the date they left the country, which coincides with the day of the explosion at an ammunition depot in Vrbetica.

20 to 18

Russia responded to Prague’s decision by expelling 20 Czech diplomats from the country …

Kulganek stated that the expulsion of 18 Russian diplomats did not jeopardize the work of the embassy, ​​but Russia decided to respond disproportionately.

According to the Czech Foreign Ministry, on Tuesday, 27 diplomats and 67 technical employees remained at the Russian embassy in Prague, and only five diplomats and 19 technical employees at the Czech embassy in Moscow.Thus, 22 diplomats and 48 technical employees can be expelled from the Russian embassy, ​​RIA Novosti calculated. But in the end, 63 employees of the Russian embassy will have to leave Prague, Kulganek said.

“We are not interested in provoking any kind of hostility, some kind of hysteria, but the fact that foreign agents caused the deaths of two of our citizens is unacceptable,” Prime Minister Babiš told Czech Radio earlier.

“This is not directed against the Russians or against the Russian people, this is a reaction to the activities of the Russian special services on our territory,” Foreign Minister Kulganek said now, announcing the demand to reduce the number of employees of the Russian embassy (quoted by RIA Novosti).

On April 19, the Czech authorities announced that they were excluding the Russian state corporation Rosatom from the tender for the construction of a new power unit at the Dukovany NPP. Rosatom called the decision non-market.

On Thursday, at the NATO Council, the Czech Foreign Minister spoke about the situation around the explosions of ammunition in Vrbetica in 2014 and the possible involvement of agents of the Russian special services in them.

“The Allies express deep concern over the destabilizing actions that Russia continues to carry out in the Euro-Atlantic region, including on the territory of the alliance, and are in full solidarity with the Czech Republic,” NATO said in a statement.

Kontaktor JSC reduces CO2 emissions

Caring for the planet: Kontaktor JSC reduces CO2 emissions

JSC Kontaktor, a brand of the Legrand Group, reports a 20% reduction in energy consumption, which corresponds to a 7% reduction in CO2 emissions. This is twice the planned indicators that were set in the plan to reduce the production of carbon dioxide from 2018 to 2021 inclusive.

The result at the Ulyanovsk enterprise was achieved by organizing high-quality energy consumption management, monitoring indicators, searching for anomalies, modernizing heating and replacing technological equipment taking into account energy efficiency requirements.Thanks to these solutions, the difference in energy consumption between 2019 and 2020 was -7918 units.

Despite the premature implementation of the plan, Kontaktor JSC continues to work on energy management. Further activities are planned for 2021 to reduce CO2 emissions. For example, the modernization of lighting, including the replacement of lighting devices with LEDs and the installation of control modules with automatic timer off and dimming. Also, work will be carried out to eliminate heat carrier temperature losses, install thermal protective coatings on equipment, replace injection machines and introduce digitalization into production.

To achieve global targets, an international working group was created, headed by the chief energy manager of the Legrand Group, which includes specialists from different countries, where experts share their experience and analyze best practices for subsequent implementation in production.

The plan to reduce CO2 emissions is enshrined in a roadmap based on the targets set in the Paris Protocol on Climate. In addition to work to reduce energy consumption, the roadmap for 2018-2021The following tasks are displayed, such as reducing emissions of volatile organic compounds by 10%, recycling 90% of industrial waste and reducing their amount in general.

90,000 World’s first battery electric locomotive cuts emissions by 11%

Wabtec showcases the world’s first electric locomotive that reduces the environmental impact of freight transport. The battery-powered FLXdrive locomotive was used as part of a hybrid system for three months of testing, during which the company was able to reduce the fuel consumption of the entire machine by 11%.This is stated in a press release from the company.


Wabtec FLXdrive is the world’s first 100% battery powered locomotive, using 18,000 lithium-ion battery cells to power all four axles and using intelligent controls to optimize efficiency. The 2.4-megawatt-hour system can be charged in the depot in the same way as an electric vehicle, but also uses a regenerative braking system to recharge while on the move. For comparison, the best-performing Tesla Model 3 has a power of 75 kWh, which is 32 times less than that of the FLXdrive.

FLXdrive was tested as part of a hybrid system with conventional diesel powertrains in a three-month test in San Joaquin Valley, California, where it traveled over 21,400 km in hilly terrain. According to Wabtec, an average 11% reduction in fuel consumption was recorded for the entire train, which is equivalent to saving 23.5 thousand liters of diesel fuel or approximately 69 tons of CO 2 .

Wabtec hopes to create an even larger and better version, increasing the capacity to more than 6 MWh, which it expects can reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions by as much as 30%.
