Socorro Quiñon, Hospital Management Office head Dr. Cynthia Cabangal-Ng, Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office head Dr. Jerry Bionat, and Public Employment Service Office head Francisco Heler Jr., among others. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don’t feel unwell. ILOILO – The rise in confirmed cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) among repatriated overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) has alarmed the provincial government. Gov. Arthur Defensor Jr. formed a quarantine team to handle returning overseas workers and locally stranded individuals (LSIs). The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Patient No. 126 returned to Metro Manila from Africa on March 14. He was subjected to reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test on May 14 (with negative result for COVID-19) before being allowed to return to Aklan on May 28. Since April 9 when the government started transporting back to Western Visayas the overseas workers stranded in Manila and Cebu due to the quarantine, a total of 3,979 have returned to the region, data from DOH showed. “This is to make their arrival organized and systematic. We will establish a contact tracing procedure or protocol to prevent the community spread of COVID-19,” said Atty. Suzette Mamon, provincial administrator. There were now 48 COVID-19-positive repatriated overseas workers in Western Visayas with the addition of two more confirmed cases yesterday – a 48-year-old male from Kalibo, Aklan (Patient No. 126) and a 31-year-old male from Cadiz City, Negros Occidental (Patient No. 127). The team will also “perform quarantine procedure to persons under monitoring (PUM) and persons under investigation (PUI).” On the other hand, Patient No. 127, a resident of Negros Occidental, came from Saudi Arabia. He was retested on June 1. On June 2 here, he was retested and found to be positive for COVID-19. The result was released only yesterday. Another task is to register passengers – get all relevant information and transmit the same to the concerned city or municipality for monitoring and execution of quarantine procedures. There is still no vaccine for COVID-19./PN COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China in December 2019. On Monday, Iloilo’s Gov. Arthur Defensor Jr. issued Executive Order 134 establishing the provincial quarantine team. It will “monitor the health of incoming passengers with thermal scanners and other similar devices, as well as ensure the performance of personal hygiene procedures, like hand-washing and/or application of disinfectants, upon entry to the province.” Of the 48 COVID-positive repatriated overseas workers, eight were from Iloilo province, 13 from Iloilo City, nine from Negros Occidental, seven from Bacolod City, four from Aklan, four from Antique, and three from Guimaras. Both were asymptomatic and under quarantine, according to Department of Health (DOH) Region 6’s Dr. Marie Jocelyn Te, medical coordinator for emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases. These droplets also land on objects and surfaces around the person. Other people then catch COVID-19 by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, nose or mouth. The disease can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales.last_img read more

first_img Ireland have gone some of the way to rebuilding confidence after a poor Euro 2012 finals campaign and their 6-1 humiliation by Germany in October, but Coleman knows it will count for little if they do not do the job against the Group C minnows on Friday evening. Speaking after the 1-1 draw with England at Wembley, the Everton defender said: “We have had a couple of good results now against Sweden and now England, and that gives us a bit of confidence. But the reason we are on this trip is for three points against the Faroe Islands. We are not looking any further than the Faroe Islands, to be honest.” He added: “We have got a game against Georgia that we have got to prepare for. I’m sure there are lads who weren’t in the team who might get a run-out and they will want to impress to get in the team. “The reason for this trip is definitely to get three points against the Faroes because we can’t afford to slip up.” Manager Giovanni Trapattoni will use Sunday’s clash with the Georgians to hone his plan for the Faroe Islands, but Coleman seems a certain starter after taking his fine club form on to the international stage this season. He appears to have made the right-back spot his own, although the modest former Sligo Rovers player refuses to take anything for granted. Coleman said: “I am one of those players, I go out in every game like I am on a trial. I want to give 100 per cent every week and make sure I stay in the team. “If I am not playing well, I won’t stay in the team, so it’s something I have to keep on top of.” Seamus Coleman has warned Ireland they have no margin for error as they prepare for their must-win World Cup qualifier against the Faroe Islands.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_img “It is not having the World Cup in mind, it is having in mind the number of minutes he has played and I want Phil to be 100 per cent to be able to put him on the pitch. “That will help him, the team, and he will be available for the summer. It is having the healthy state of Phil in mind.” There was better news on midfielder Ross Barkley, who came off at half-time in Everton’s 3-1 win at Fulham with a calf problem. “He’s had two very good days and we will assess him today and we will hope he can join the group today or tomorrow so we are very much positive he will be available for Sunday.” Martinez also expects to see fellow midfielder Darron Gibson back before the end of the season after a cruciate knee ligament operation. “I would be surprised if he doesn’t join the group next week. That doesn’t mean he will be involved on the pitch but if he is progressing the way he is I think we could see him playing before the end of the season.” Striker Arouna Kone, out since October with a knee injury, will not be available, however, but Bryan Oviedo’s hopes of making the World Cup with Costa Rica are good as he continues to make astonishing progress from a double fracture of his leg in January. “I don’t think we will see Kone this season. It is more realistic to see him back in pre-season,” said Martinez. “But I do feel Bryan has a good opportunity to join the group in the final week of the season, which is an incredible recovery time. “From a medical point of view he will be available (for the World Cup) which allows the manager to make a decision on that. “The moment the injury happened I thought the World Cup was out of the question but there is a chance.” Everton manager Roberto Martinez insists it would be a “fatal gamble” to bring back captain Phil Jagielka too early from a hamstring injury. Press Association The centre-back has missed the last six matches and although the Toffees boss said the defender would travel to last weekend’s game at Fulham he did not feature in the squad and the club’s medical staff have warned he is not yet ready to return. Martinez made the error of throwing Jagielka into action too soon for the 4-0 Merseyside derby defeat at Anfield in late January and insists he will not make the mistake again. The risk of the England international getting injured again now would put his World Cup place in doubt but his manager said that was not the basis of his thinking. “We need to be very careful. It is an injury we need to be very aware we don’t get a recurrence,” said Martinez. “I still think he is doing his individual programme and the medical department are not ready to allow him to join the group and be in the squad. “I don’t think he will be available for this week (against Arsenal) and I think we need to play it very much safe with Phil. “He has played a lot of football and the concern is even though he is ready to step up we need to be careful with introducing him into games. “Don’t get me wrong, the well-being of the player is the most important thing. “With all fairness I rushed him back in one game this season and that was because we had no-one else to play. “Sometimes you can do that because of the amount of minutes they have played and it is a controlled gamble, but at this stage of the season it would be a fatal gamble if he is not fully match fit and having to cope with a possible soft-tissue injury. last_img read more

first_imgRohit Sharma blasted his 17th fifty.Navdeep Saini picked up 3/17 in the first match.Saini gave an aggressive send-off to Nicholas Pooran. New Delhi: Navdeep Saini had made a dream debut in the first Twenty20 International against West Indies in Florida. Saini took two wickets in his first over in international cricket which included Nicholas Pooran and Shimron Hetmyer. It was the wicket of Pooran which saw Saini celebrate a bit too aggressively. After Pooran top-edged a short ball and was caught by Rishabh Pant, Saini raised his arms and aggressively pointed Pooran to go back to the West Indies dressing room. Pooran was clearly not happy with the incident as he walked off. The celebrations have resulted in Saini getting one demerit point. “Saini was found to have breached Article 2.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to using actions or gestures which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batter upon their dismissal,” said the ICC in a statement. “He has also been handed one demerit point,” the statement added. Saini was charged by the on-field umpires Nigel Duguid and Gregory Braithwaite, third umpire Leslie Reifer and fourth official Patrick Gustard.  He admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Jeff Crowe of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees. Hence, there was no need for a formal hearing. Rohit’s fifty, combined with some disciplined bowling from Krunal Pandya and rain gave India victory by 22 runs via DLS method and also helped them take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. On the same strip where West Indies struggled to 95/9, India chose to bat and immediately, they were boosted by some fine batting from Rohit. The Mumbai batsman tied the sixes record by flicking Oshane Thomas to the deep midwicket and then broke it in style when he hammered Sunil Narine over the deep midwicket fence to become the ultimate six-hitter in the shortest format of the game.

first_imgThat first hit in 12 years hurt. During a recent practice, Chad Bentz found himself lying on the ground, the victim of a hard hit from the team’s star linebacker. Bentz, a 30-year-old Castleton junior, felt a pain in his upper chest, like the time he broke his collarbone. ‘And I thought, ‘There’s my college football career, and it’s over in 30 seconds,” Bentz said Wednesday. That afternoon was Bentz’s first collegiate practice in full pads and in full-contract drills. A few minutes after the hit, a trainer looked at him, pressed on his collarbone and gave him the OK to return. Until this September, the last time Bentz played football was in high school, about 12 years ago. Bentz gave up playing football for the dream of becoming a major league pitcher. He achieved that dream for a while, but not for long enough.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Now the Spartans’ fullback, this is one man’s odd story of making it to a different sort of show. This fall, Bentz enrolled in Castleton to pursue an education degree and become a physical education teacher. On the first day of class, the sun shone brightly, and Bentz’s attention wandered outside. During a two-hour break between classes, he walked over to where the football team practiced and went into head coach Rich Alercio’s office. The two men knew each other — Bentz had coached Alercio’s son in baseball. They chatted, and Bentz asked polite and interested questions about Alercio’s squad. Bentz remembers what came next as a halfhearted statement. ‘I’d really love to play for you, you know,’ Bentz said to Alercio. ‘So why don’t you?’ Alercio said. Bentz was surprised, and he asked Alercio if he meant it. Alercio said he was serious. Why not? Alercio told Bentz to just give it a shot. ‘I responded with, ‘Let me go check out over with the missus (sic) and talk it over with my wife,” Bentz said. Even before this year’s football season, Bentz was a familiar figure at Castleton. Starting in 2004, Bentz would go to work out with the Castleton baseball team when he came home for professional baseball’s offseason. Bentz played two seasons in the major leagues. In 2004, he played for the Montreal Expos, and the next year, he went to the Florida Marlins. In those two seasons, Bentz pitched 29-and-two-thirds innings and ended up with a 7.58 ERA. Bentz is a lefty who was born with a right hand that just never grew fully, leaving him without a developed right hand. He enjoyed pitching against live hitters at Castleton. He would work in the bullpen, too, and dispense tips to the Castleton players. That was the deal. Free use of the gym, if he helped groom Castleton baseball head coach Ted Shipley’s players. ‘He would just be one of the guys. He’d do everything that we’d do,’ Shipley said recently. Each year, Shipley asked about his plans for the next season. The plans changed some every time, and eventually Bentz stopped playing professional baseball altogether. ‘It’s the nature of the business. You have to produce, or they’ll find someone who will,’ Shipley said. But as Bentz’s baseball career faded, a new career began. After his impromptu recruitment visit with Alercio, Bentz failed to even wait until he got home to tell his wife that he wanted to embrace the impulses of his youth and play football again. On the car ride home from Castleton, he asked her permission to play over the phone. ‘What do you think about me playing football?’ he asked his wife. ‘Are you serious?’ she said. Bentz confessed his early doubts, but his desire as well. And he said she agreed to let him play on the spot. Just as well, Bentz said, in case something went wrong or he decided against playing, he could blame it on his wife wanting him at home. His wife took just a little cajoling. He found the task more difficult when he talked to a different family member. ‘My mom was the worst. No matter how old you get, moms are the same,’ he said. Working Bentz into the Spartans’ offense will take time, said Alercio. Bentz knows his job in a few plays now, and Alercio adds a new play per week to Bentz’s knowledge. Bentz needs to know his exact role on the field to play well in a game, Alercio said. ‘You don’t want to have a 6-foot-2-inch, 265-pound former professional athlete with indecision out there,’ Alercio said. The offensive scheme calls on Bentz to play in short-yardage, goal-line situations for when the Spartans’ need him to pick up a tough yard. So far Bentz focuses on lowering his head down and running through the hole. And if Bentz wanted to, he could play at Castleton until his eligibility runs out. Somehow he figures he will quit playing prior to that. He plans to graduate before then, anyway. Said Bentz: ‘I guess I have another three years left. That’s the rumor, anyway.’ No. 11 Wisconsin at No. 24 Michigan State Prediction: Wisconsin 30, Michigan State 14 Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio will return to the Spartans this week, but it will take a lot more for Michigan State to triumph over Wisconsin. Badgers running back John Clay will run all over the Spartans’ defense. No. 7 Florida at No. 1 Alabama Prediction: Alabama 24, Florida 20 In this week’s most intriguing matchup, Alabama will get another serious test from conference foe Florida this week, after just surviving an upset-minded Arkansas team the week before. Florida will take this down to the wire, but the Crimson Tide will prevail. No. 9 Stanford at No. 4 Oregon Prediction: Oregon 27, Stanford 17 A battle of early-season West Coast superpowers, Stanford will look to upset the Ducks. But watch for Oregon to eek this one out. No. 22 Penn State at No. 17 Iowa Prediction: Penn State 20, Iowa 17 Look for Joe Paterno’s team to come onto Iowa’s home turf and give the Hawkeyes a nasty surprise. No. 8 Oklahoma at No. 21 Texas Prediction: Oklahoma 32, Texas 20 For this year’s edition of the Red River Rivalry, Texas takes Oklahoma at home, but victory will prove elusive for the Longhorns. adbrow03@syr.edu Published on September 29, 2010 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Commentslast_img read more

It will feature live music performances by a host of local artists including Rick Ross, Sam Sneek and Baby Soulja, as well as a host of activities for the whole family. Featuring Dolphins and Miami Heat starsBryan McKinney of the Miami Dolphins will host a special session of flag football, and the Miami Heat’s own Udonis Haslem will lead father-and-son teams in 3-on-3 basketball tournaments. Festival goers will also enjoy free haircuts, food trucks, a kids’ zone with bounce houses and more. The last People Matter Fest was held on April 21 at Little River Park. The nonviolence-themed festival began last year in an effort to bring the community together to call for a “ceasefire” on gun violence. “Not only did we accomplish our Ceasefire, but the police informed us that it lasted for weeks after and was their slowest reporting period on Shot Spotter for any summer,” Papa Keith said.Seeking 24-hour countywide ceasefireThis time, festival organizers are calling for a 24-hour countywide “ceasefire” beginning at 3:45 p.m. on the day of the festival. The moment will be marked by a Junkanoo band performance. “There is nothing better than for our community to come together in a spirit of love to celebrate life and nonviolence, and that’s what this is all about,” Commissioner Monestime said.last_img read more

first_imgCollege fantasy football lives and dies with offense, and Week 11 has several games guaranteed to produce some offensive DFS fireworks. From LSU at Alabama to San Jose State at Hawaii to Iowa State at Oklahoma, there are plenty of great matchups and potential sleepers on this week’s DraftKings slate.Before getting into this week’s picks, just a reminder that if you’re looking for more help setting your season-long or DFS lineups, check out the comprehensive Week 11 college fantasy football rankings at CFBDynasty.

GPP | DK cash | DK GPP | FD cash | FD GPP Week 11 College Fantasy Football DFS Picks: QBsBest Start: Jamie Newman, Wake Forest at Virginia Tech ($8,400). Newman returned in Week 10 from a shoulder injury to put up 317 total yards and five TDs in less than three quarters. This week he gets to face a Virginia Tech defense that is giving up more than 400 yards and four TDs per game. That, coupled with a projected 63.5-point over/under, should give Newman plenty of opportunities for another big performance. Best Value: Brock Purdy, Iowa State at Oklahoma ($7,900). Purdy has been somewhat inconsistent this season from a fantasy perspective, ranging from 16 fantasy points in a game all the way up to 55. This week Iowa State goes on the road to take on Oklahoma in Norman. Purdy should have all the work he can handle as the Cyclones try to keep pace with the powerful Sooner offense. Best Sleeper: Kyle Trask, Florida vs Vanderbilt ($6,400). Trask has been very impressive since taking over for the injured Feleipe Franks, averaging 247 passing yards and at least two TDs over the past six games. This week the Gators host SEC rival Vanderbilt, whose defense currently 99th in passing and 103rd in scoring, should not provide much of a hindrance. Trask should be able to put up some big numbers.MORE: CFBDynasty player rankingsWeek 11 College Fantasy Football DFS Picks: RBsBest Start: Max Borghi, Washington State at California ($7,800). Borghi’s all around game is what makes him so valuable, both to the Cougars and fantasy owners. Last week Oregon held Borghi to only 54 rushing yards and one TD on eight carries, but he made up for the lack of rushing by catching eight passes for another 70 yards. This week Washington State goes on the road to take on California, whose early-season defensive dominance has slipped in recent games. Look for Borghi to be used all over the field as one of the Cougars primary offensive weapons. Best Value: Breece Hall, Iowa State at Oklahoma State ($6,800). Since being unleashed in Week 7, Hall has had three straight games with at least 30 fantasy points. This week’s matchup with Oklahoma will be against a much tougher opponent, but Hall’s big-game potential is definitely worth using. The Cyclones have found their bellcow RB and will continue to ride him.Best Sleeper: David Bailey, Boston College vs. Florida State ($4,700). While he is currently stuck behind superstar RB A.J. Dillon, Bailey has still put up solid numbers, including going over 170 yards and two TDs in two of the past three weeks. Boston College loves to pound the footbal,l and this week’s matchup against Florida State’s mediocre run defense will be a great opportunity for both RBs to do just that. Week 11 College Fantasy Football DFS Picks: WRsBest Start: James Proche, SMU vs. East Carolina ($7,300). Proche has been spectacular in the SMU offense this season, scoring double-digit fantasy points in every game this season, including seven games of over 20 fantasy points. The injury to fellow WR Reggie Roberson has increased his usage, and last week Proche took full advantage, turning 13 receptions into 149 yards and a touchdown. He will continue to the Mustangs’ primary target in Week 11 as SMU hosts East Carolina.Best Value: Devin Duvernay, Texas vs. Kansas State ($6,500). Duvernay has been a fantasy monster this season, averaging almost nine receptions for 100 yards and one TD per game. He should have another big game as QB Sam Ehlinger will continue to look his way this week in a tough matchup against Big 12 rival Kansas State. Best Sleeper: Corey Sutton, Appalachian State at South Carolina ($5,200). Sutton has been solid since returning from a two-game suspension to open the season, catching 28 passes for 345 yards and three TDs. The Mountaineers will need a huge game from his this week as they try to keep pace on the road with SEC opponent South Carolina. Look for Appalachian to throw to Sutton early and often.last_img read more
