DILG warns malls to enforce strict physical distancing or face closure

first_img“All Chiefs of Police and PCP Commanders should make rounds of all malls prior to opening and during operating hours. If the malls are not able to comply with the minimum health standards, the PNP can close the malls and charge the mall owners with violation of the Bayanihan to Heal As One Act,” he said in a press release. Eleazar, for his part, vowed to facilitate the closure of establishments that will disregard the physical distancing measures. The World Health Organization has earlier warned that a hasty lifting of restrictions imposed to control the COVID-19 pandemic could lead to a fatal resurgence of the new COVID-19 cases./PN Malacañang also expressed alarm over the swarm of people in malls and other places as he reminded the public that movement for leisure purposes remained prohibited in MECQ even if some malls and establishments have already opened. This was the stern warning of no less than Interior Secretary Eduardo Año yesterday. Over the weekend, heavy traffic was observed in parts of Metro Manila and Luzon after the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Disease decided to relax the quarantine rules. NTF Against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) spokesperson retired General Restituto Padilla, for his part, said that the excitement of the public could lead to possible transmission of the virus.  “Kami po ay humihiling sa sambayanan na huminahon po tayo. Huwag tayong ma-excite,” he added. “Nababahala po ang NTF (National Task Force) sa nangyari kahapon. Naging excited po ang ating mga kababayan. Ito po ay siguro ay kakulangan sa ganap na pagkaintindi sa sakit na nangyayari ngayon,” Padilla said in an interview with DZBB.center_img He directed all local government units and the Joint Task Force Covid Shield under Police Lieutenant General Guillermo Eleazar to inspect all malls and talk to mall management about their observance of the Department of Health minimum health standards and quarantine protocols. MANILA – Malls that have partially reopened after the easing of quarantine rules would be shut down if they do not strictly enforce physical distancing. Cebu City and Mandaue City were placed under ECQ while the rest of the country was put under general community quarantine, which implements more relaxed restrictions. Eleazar’s statement came following reports and social media posts showing the supposed failure of mall security managers to implement physical distancing during the resumption of operations of some malls in Metro Manila over the weekend. A poster reminding shoppers to maintain social distance to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease is placed beside an escalator in a shopping mall in Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines, on Sunday. REUTERS “Iyong mga leisure po, kung pupuwede po ay maiwasan po muna iyan kasi talagang wala pa pong ganiyang pahintulot ang IATF; nililimita pa rin po natin sa essential travel,” Roque said in an interview on DZBB. Metro Manila, Bataan, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga including Angeles City, Zambales and Laguna—areas previously under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) shifted to modified enhanced community quarantine on Saturday.last_img read more

Man City to offer Guardiola new deal after UCL ban overturned

first_imgManchester City will offer boss Pep Guardiola a lucrative new long-term deal after overturning their Champions League ban. City won their appeal against their two year UEFA ban for breaking Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules, after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruled in their favour. The ruling means City are free to carry on playing in the Champions League and has removed the threat of a mass exodus of players due to their potential European exile. City had been accused of falsely inflating the value of sponsorship deals to comply with FFP, a charge the club had always denied. The allegation they inflated the value of sponsorship deals – effectively ‘self-sponsorship’ – to meet FFP rules was dismissed by CAS, allowing for the overturning of the ban. Man City boss Pep Guardiola is set to cash in after the club was cleared of serious breaches of FFP Read Also: La Liga chief unhappy at decision to overturn Man City UCL banBut the CAS verdict did not completely exonerate City, who broke Article 56 of UEFA’s regulations, which compels all clubs to cooperate fully with investigations. City were found to have disregarded that obligation and obstructed the process, but their subsequent £8.9m fine is money down the side of the sofa for a club of their financial might.

Celtic Rescue UCL Draw in Kazakhtan

first_imgIn Brendan Rodgers’ third competitive game in charge, they fell behind to a Yuri Logvinenko header.But after heavy Astana pressure, Leigh Griffiths struck a potentially crucial away goal on 78 minutes.Griffiths had scarcely been involved in the match, his partnership with Moussa Dembele failing to gel.But the striker, whose 40 goals last year earned him multiple awards and medals, showed his worth with a fantastic equaliser.Patrick Roberts, Celtic’s brightest player on the night, won possession near the byeline and picked out Griffiths inside the penalty area.With barely a glance up, Griffiths rifled the ball past Nenad Eric to change the complexion of the tie.Such an outcome had looked unlikely as a makeshift Celtic defence had to deal with a barrage of Astana chances.With Erik Sviatchenko added to an already extensive list of injured defenders, Rodgers brought in 20-year-old Eoghan O’Connell for his European debut and Efe Ambrose was reintroduced to a three-man backline alongside Mikael Lustig.Ambrose was fortunate not to see a lapse of concentration punished as he missed a Patrick Twumasi cross altogether, with Junior Kabananga inches away from connecting and Mikael Lustig nervously knocking the ball clear.But from the 19th-minute corner, O’Connell was left for dead by Logvinenk, who headed unchallenged into the net.Although there were several further scares for the small travelling support, the majority of Astana’s opportunities came from distance, with Craig Gordon looking assured.As they often have, Celtic had their goalkeeper to thank for keeping the deficit to just one goal until Griffiths’ leveller.The Scotland international again produced save after save to help ensure Celtic are in the driving seat going into next week’s second leg.He somehow clawed away an awkward Azat Nurgaliyev chip after another Ambrose error, parried a ferocious 40-yard Twumasi drive, touched a dipping Nurgaliyev shot on to the crossbar and kept out a Kabananga effort with his legs.Those interventions could prove vital as Celtic aim for a win in Glasgow next week to reach the Champions League play-off stage.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Celtic emerged from a testing visit to Astana in which they were largely second best with a commendable draw.Looking to reach the Champions League group stage for the first time since 2013, they found the Kazakhs tough opposition.last_img read more

 

Marshall case team wins competition in Singapore

first_imgA team of four undergraduates from USC’s Marshall School of Business won first place at the National University of Singapore International Case Competition held at the National University of Singapore on Sept. 16, making it Marshall’s second case competition victory in a row.Best-case scenario · Professor Quentin Fleming (center) and the four members of the Marshall case team won first place in Singapore. – Photo courtesy of Marshall The team — seniors Emily Dong, Nikunj Mistry and Calvin Tay, and junior Michelle Li — was one of two U.S. teams at the competition. Their opponents came from 11 different schools and seven countries, including South Korea and Thailand.Members of the team were surprised when they found out that they had won the competition.“We were ecstatic,” said Quentin Fleming, professor of management and organization and the team’s faculty adviser. “It was one of those moments.”Dong, a senior majoring in accounting, said the team didn’t anticipate the win.“We were hoping to place, because we didn’t expect first,” Dong said. “It was a good surprise.”Mistry, a senior majoring in business administration and economics, said the case competition was particularly difficult because students were only given eight hours — as opposed to 24 to 48 hours in other competitions — to read a 20- to 30-page text about a business problem, analyze it and present their recommendations to a panel of judges.“In a lot of case competitions, you know how much time you have and have a chance to prepare before you start the competition, but this time we really had no idea,” Mistry said.The other U.S. team was  from UC Berkeley. Thammasat University from Thailand placed second and National University of Singapore placed third.Fleming said that for USC, this win is particularly significant because it shows that Marshall students have a lot of initiative.“They enjoy challenges and really step in and rise to the occasion,” Fleming said.And this has been happening for a while.“Marshall has been winning more than our fair share in the last two and a half years,” Fleming said. “We’ve really kicked into high gear.”This is USC’s second victory at an international case competition since the fall of 2009. Marshall has also consistently done well in other international competitions, Fleming said.USC regularly holds one of the largest case competitions in Los Angeles every spring. About 30 universities around the world attend and the USC team  has won that competition.“I don’t think that was really good manners,” Fleming said.last_img read more

 

Knight good as promised for Badgers

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team has had a lot of success with freshmen in recent years, and Hilary Knight is no different ten games into the season. The preseason WCHA rookie of the year has been as good as Badgers head coach Mark Johnson could have hoped for.”As far as doing the things on the ice, I think [Knight] is probably where we thought she would be at this particular point,” Johnson said. “The things that are sort of out there that you don’t know how they are going to deal with is living in the dorms, adjusting to Madison, adjusting to college life and class schedules and the time management that these young athletes have to work with the first five or six weeks of school. The hockey part of it is just one element, and when you throw everything else into the equation, it becomes difficult and challenging. She has played in high-profile events, so her comfort level against the competition is there, and her point production up to this point isn’t a surprise.”Part of the reason that Knight has enjoyed early success is her experience with international hockey. Knight represented the United States in a three-game U-22 series between the United States and Canada this year, and was a member of the U.S. senior national team, making two appearances in 2006-07. She also earned a spot on the roster for the Four Nations Cup in November 2006 and was the youngest player on the U.S. squad at the 2007 IIHF World Women’s Championship.”Having played at a high level and having played against some of the top players in the world, her confidence and comfort level when things don’t go well is going to be a little farther ahead than maybe some younger players who haven’t had that experience,” Johnson said. “Hilary has had both of those, because when she was at the Four Nations she played a little, but didn’t play a lot, and so she absorbed that type of role. With the world championships in Winnipeg, she played a lot in some games and didn’t play much in other games, and so for young players you are getting experience in different roles, and gaining confidence which is a big factor when you come into your university.”Expectations might have been two highThe Badgers have experienced so much success the past two seasons that the expectations for this season were extremely high. The Badgers are the two-time defending national champions and lost only one game last season. Along with those achievements, the Badgers also ended last season with a 26-game undefeated streak. Because of this past success, this year’s young team is being held to lofty standards, which are difficult to meet.”If you told me at the beginning of the year that we are only going to lose one game, I would have said, ‘You’re nuts,’” Johnson said. “When we did lose a game I got the reaction of, ‘What is wrong?’ Well, the other teams are pretty good. They have gotten better, they are competitive, and they want to beat us.”St. Cloud State snapped Wisconsin’s NCCA record 32-game unbeaten streak when it beat Wisconsin 2-1 Oct. 19.Rival Minnesota up nextWisconsin is looking forward to playing a very tough Minnesota team this upcoming weekend. Minnesota just beat the previous No. 1 team in the nation, Minnesota-Duluth, 3-1 and 5-1 this past weekend.”They are always going to have good teams, and they are always going to have good players,” Johnson said. “Any time you play them, it is going to present a real tough task. Our job is to prepare our team and get ourselves ready to compete for 60 minutes both Friday and Saturday afternoon. As far as ranking programs, I want to say that both have very strong programs. They have won some national championships, and we have been fortunate to win some national championships.”last_img read more

 

Josh Ruggles finds his role at Loras College after dealing with heart complications

first_imgAs a college basketball player, Josh Ruggles is a better basketball player than the average person. Because of a medical condition, which required three heart surgeries, he plays with a much slower heart rate than the average person, too.The guard at Division III Loras College was diagnosed with supraventricular tachycardia, or SVT, when he was five years old. SVT causes an abnormally fast heartbeat rhythm due to faulty electrical activity in the heart.Once diagnosed, Ruggles underwent the usual surgery for SVT, which if done correctly, leaves no long-term issues. But Ruggles needed three to fix his SVT. By the third surgery, Ruggles’ heart had swollen to the point that he now has permanent, second-degree heart blockage.“Not that you want to hear this about your kid, but this one will be in the textbooks,” Holly Ruggles, Josh’s mother, said. “It was just a very unusual case.”Second-degree heart blockage slows electrical signals between the atria and ventricles “to a large degree,” according to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. If electrical signals are stopped from reaching the ventricles, the ventricles won’t contract. Blood is then unable to be pumped to the rest of the body, especially the lungs.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAs a result of his second-degree heart blockage, Ruggles has a resting heart rate at or near 30 beats per minute. According to the American Heart Association, even the best-trained athletes don’t have resting heart rates below 40 beats per minute.Because Ruggles is well-trained and in shape, the blockage doesn’t affect him too much on the court. But his SVT ended up leading him to Loras.After high school, Ruggles played basketball at Grace College, an NAIA Division I school. He eventually transferred to Loras, where he now plays a key role and averages 9.6 points per game.Chris Martin is Ruggles’ head coach at Loras. Martin was diagnosed with SVT in high school, but Martin faces no ill effects from it because his surgery was successful. The shared past didn’t hurt Martin when he decided to recruit a transferring Ruggles, though.Ruggles already knew Martin, through Martin’s wife, Haley, who taught at Ruggles’ high school. He didn’t know that he and his soon-to-be head coach shared a part of his past.“Kinda funny, he used the heart problem as a recruiting tool,” Ruggles said, laughing. “And it worked.”Courtesy of Loras College AthleticsHolly Ruggles, Josh’s mother, didn’t know Martin before. When Martin started recruiting Josh, Holly called him and told him about her son’s past heart issues, including SVT. Martin quickly interjected, telling Holly that he himself had dealt with SVT in his past. Holly felt more comfortable with Josh going to Loras knowing that. If he was having chest troubles, Holly trusted that Martin would have an ingrained understanding of how to handle it, better than other coaches would.Despite the fresh start at a new school, Ruggles couldn’t quite escape the lingering doubt when he arrived this past fall. In a pre-season workout, he felt chest pain. After about a week, when the pain hadn’t subsided, doctors took a look and diagnosed Ruggles with myocarditis. It starts with a nondescript virus, and ends with muscle and other cells in the heart becoming inflamed. A total fluke and unrelated to his other heart problems. Yet there they were.The condition increased swelling in Ruggles’ heart, increasing the risk of him encountering problems while playing.“I just have an increased risk of dropping on the court,” Ruggles said. “The risk is worth it in my opinion.”There really is no standard timetable for recovery from myocarditis. Ruggles was given a 3-6 month estimate in the fall when he was diagnosed, but there were no guarantees. At one of his check-ups, in mid-December, he was given the all clear. He would be able to play again, with no restrictions.A week of practices later, and Ruggles was making his Loras debut, hosting Carroll University on December 22. Even though it was winter break and the crowd was almost empty, according to Ruggles, it was a big moment in his journey. He didn’t know whether he would ever play again.“Best Christmas gift I’ve ever gotten,” Ruggles said, “that’s for sure.”The sophomore still has a long career ahead of him at Loras. Currently shooting 36..9 percent from 3, he’s made a solid early impression on Martin, who deemed him “one of the best shooters in the country.” For as long as Ruggles is able, he won’t let any heart condition keep him off the court.There is an automatic external defibrillator in the gym every time Loras plays. Martin insists that it’s not just for Ruggles, but for the well-being of the whole team.“Better to be safe than sorry,” Martin said.Through layers of adversity, SVT and second-degree heart blockage to myocarditis and the increased risk it posed, all Ruggles wanted to do was play basketball.“I really tried after I got cleared to just love every second,” Ruggles said. “To enjoy it, and have fun with it, and make sure other people were having fun with it. And it was really easy to, after that whole thing.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 2, 2017 at 5:14 pm Contact Billy: wmheyen@syr.edu | @Wheyen3last_img read more
