Administración Wolf: Usen máscaras para proteger y apoyar a las empresas locales

first_img July 10, 2020 Español,  Press Release,  Public Health En el día de la fecha, el Gobernador Tom Wolf, el Secretario del Departamento de Desarrollo Comunitario y Económico, Dennis Davin, y el Secretario de Agricultura, Russell Redding, recordaron a los residentes de Pennsylvania que deben usar máscaras mientras compran y comen en restaurantes para proteger y apoyar a nuestras empresas locales.“El uso de máscaras es mucho más que un requisito. Es una señal de apoyo y respeto hacia nuestras empresas locales”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “Las empresas de Pennsylvania han hecho importantes sacrificios en los últimos meses y ahora ellos confían en que nosotros, como consumidores, podemos ayudarlos a mantener las puertas abiertas. Usar una máscara protege a todos del virus y muestra respeto y apoyo por las empresas y sus empleados. Ellos usas máscaras todos los días y adoptan otras medidas importantes de salud y seguridad para protegernos y brindarnos los bienes y servicios que necesitamos y queremos”.Todas las empresas que funcionan en persona deben cumplir las pautas de seguridad en edificios y en empresas emitidas por la Secretaria de Salud de Pennsylvania y por los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC). Específicamente, los trabajadores y los clientes deben usar una máscara cuando trabajan, compran y comen en los restaurantes, y los empleadores deben proporcionar a los trabajadores las máscaras que necesiten. La guía para empresas está disponible para las empresas de Pennsylvania.“Pennsylvania está abriendo nuevamente, y con esa libertad viene la responsabilidad. Todos debemos usar máscaras cuando visitamos los restaurantes, salones y tiendas en todo el estado”, dijo el Secretario del DCED, Dennis Davin. “Al pedirles a los clientes que usen máscaras, los dueños de negocios de Pennsylvania están dando un paso adelante para garantizar que sus clientes y los empleados se sientan cómodos y seguros. Para que Pennsylvania siga funcionando, debemos trabajar juntos para detener la propagación del coronavirus”.La investigación demuestra que usar una máscara reduce el riesgo de infección de COVID-19, al tiempo que no usar una máscara aumenta en gran medida las posibilidades de que una persona se infecte con este virus contagioso y mortal.“Queremos que los residentes de Pennsylvania salgan, ya que es importante que nuestra salud mental vuelva a tener un sentido de normalidad. Pero las cosas aún no son normales, y es por eso que deben usar una máscara. Usar una máscara les da libertad y minimiza el riesgo”, dijo el Secretario Redding. “Usen una por su comunidad y sus familias. Usen una máscara para que la cara amigable que ven en el mercado de agricultores cada semana siga estando ahí. Y sobre todo, úsenla para que Pennsylvania pueda seguir avanzando”.El 1 de julio, la Secretaria de Salud la Dra. Rachel Levine firmó una orden que indica la obligatoriedad del uso de máscaras. Permanece vigente.

Burundi’s Parliamentary Elections Postponed

first_imgBurundi’s electoral body announced Wednesday it will delay scheduled local and parliamentary elections after more than a month of sometimes violent protests against President Pierre Nkurunziza’s bid for a third term.Nkurunziza’s campaign for a third presidential term ignited Burundi’s worst crisis since an ethnically-fuelled civil war ended in 2005. His opponents say he is constitutionally prohibited from running for a third term.Regional bloc East African Community on Sunday asked the Burundian government to postpone elections for at least 45 days and to use the time to ensure that there is a conducive environment to hold the polls. More than 90,000 Burundians have fled the country fearing violence. Burundi has had a long history of political upheaval that has been characterized by political assassinations and coups.Officials are waiting for a proposal from the electoral commission on the new dates for election. Parliamentary elections were scheduled for Friday while presidential polls were slated for June 26.last_img read more

O’Neill focused on improving squad

first_img But the former Shamrock Rovers boss has impressed IFA officials with his behind-the-scenes work and development of younger players in the squad. O’Neill also has the support of key senior players, as evidenced by the continued presence of Gareth McAuley and Aaron Hughes – both of whom turn 34 before the end of the year – among his group for the trip to Adana. “The contract actually wasn’t a major thing, it was quite straightforward because the discussions we had were that everybody at the association wanted me to continue,” O’Neill told Press Association Sport. “I’ve been working for two years now and I wanted to continue that development of the team and the squad and hopefully make sure we have better results in qualifying next time. “Coming into the job I knew I wasn’t just managing an international team. We’ve restructured the age level groups, we’ve been getting the right people into the jobs and I’ve been assisting them with whatever they need. That will continue. “When I was appointed Northern Ireland manager I was honoured to have been chosen to manage my country and I am extremely happy to have agreed a new two-year deal with the Irish Football Association.” O’Neill’s side finished fifth in their six-team 2014 World Cup qualifying group and suffered a humiliating loss to Luxembourg along the way. They have won just once in 14 matches under O’Neill but the IFA is convinced they have the right man in place. IFA president Jim Shaw has been a vocal supporter of O’Neill during his tenure, and he said: “I am delighted that Michael has agreed a two-year extension to his contract. “I have no doubt that he will be able to build on the work he has already done and will take us forward in the Euro 2016 campaign. “Michael is a true professional who has passion and pride, something which he showed as a player for his country and now as a manager, and I believe he is the right man for the job of Northern Ireland manager.” O’Neill will be without Palermo striker Kyle Lafferty, whose wife is due to give birth around the date of the Turkey clash, as well as injured duo Craig Cathcart and Corry Evans, but otherwise has a full-strength panel available to him. O’Neill is desperate to persuade McAuley and Hughes to commit to one final campaign before retirement and their presence for the trip is encouraging, while captain Steven Davis and Manchester United’s Jonny Evans are also in the squad. Jonny Steele, the uncapped Larne-born midfielder who has been impressing for New York Red Bulls in Major League Soccer, has been left out to focus on his club’s play-off chase. Northern Ireland squad to face Turkey on November 15: Carroll (Olympiacos), Mannus (St Johnstone); McAuley (West Brom), J Evans (Man Utd), Hodson (MK Dons), D Lafferty (Burnley), McArdle (Bradford), Hughes (Fulham), Baird (Reading); Davis (Southampton), Norwood (Huddersfield), Ferguson (Birmingham), Brunt (West Brom), Clingan (Kilmarnock), O’Connor (Rotherham); McKay (Inverness), Paterson (Huddersfield), Ward (Derby), McGinn (Aberdeen), Grigg (Brentford). Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill will begin his Euro 2016 planning in earnest next week after putting pen to paper on a new two-year contract. Press Association The friendly against Turkey on November 15 was the final fixture on his original deal with the Irish Football Association and when he announced a strong 20-man squad for the match at Windsor Avenue on Tuesday, he was able to do so having signed on to lead the Euro 2016 campaign. O’Neill took over from Nigel Worthington at the start of 2012 and has won just one of his 14 games in charge of the national side, August’s impressive 1-0 success over Russia. last_img read more

They also discovered corrosion in both spans.The northbound and southbound bridges were then closed for inspection until June 27, at which point the northbound bridge reopened to two-way traffic following minor repair work.After restoring the bridge’s strength and allowing it to re-open to traffic, FDOT will address the corrosion and do the work to preserve the bridge.Occasional lane closures are expected as the design and repair work continues, officials say.last_img read more

ICC World Cup Need to play every game in World Cup like we are playing India: Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed

first_img New Delhi: The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is just over six weeks away but all eyes will be on India vs Pakistan clash on June 16 in Manchester. The rivalry between India and Pakistan is legendary in the World Cup with India winning all six encounters against Pakistan starting from the 1992 World Cup clash in Sydney. Heading into the clash, India is expected to continue their dominance against a Pakistan side struggling for confidence after they were whitewashed 5-0 at home against Australia last month. However, Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed has stated that the team must approach every game in the World Cup like they are playing India.“The match against India is very important in many ways but it is one match and we need to play all our remaining matches in the tournament like we are playing against India,” Sarfaraz said in an interview to a Pakistan channel. highlights In order to prepare for the World Cup, Pakistan will be playing five ODIs and a Twenty20 International against England starting on May 5. The team is currently in Kent where they will use the period to acclimatize to the conditions. Mohammad Amir, who starred in Pakistan’s ICC Champions Trophy 2017 clash against India in the final, has not been named in the 15-man squad but is in the side for the England series.Sarfaraz said that he was under no pressure as captain before the mega-event. “Where I bat we will decide as the matches go but there is complete unanimity between me and Mickey Arthur and the selection committee over the players selected,” he said when asked if he had been consulted in the finalisation of the squad. Sarfaraz said his team had the talent and depth to surprise any team but it was important for players to gain momentum and maintain it in the tournament as every team would have to play nine games to qualify for the knockout stage.Sarfaraz was happy that other teams had been given the favourites tag in the World Cup. “It is good for us as it means there will be more pressure on the teams given the favourite tag and it also means that we can play as underdogs that is when we give our best and perform.” For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.

Superlatives from Syracuse’s 82-72 upset of No. 6 Florida State

first_img Published on January 28, 2017 at 2:18 pm Contact Matt: | @matt_schneidman Syracuse (13-9, 5-4 Atlantic Coast) upset No. 6 Florida State (18-4, 6-3) in the Carrier Dome on Saturday afternoon, holding off the Seminoles for a 82-72 win. The Orange led by 18 at the break, its largest advantage at halftime in 20 conference games, but let it slip to as few as two in the second half. Jim Boeheim’s team held on, though, and continued its hot streak at home.Here are superlatives from Syracuse’s fifth conference win.Stud: Tyler LydonEven though Andrew White led the way with a game-high 24 points, Lydon did it all – again – to keep the Orange in front. The sophomore scored 14 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and tied a career high with six blocks, continuing to prove his worth as Syracuse’s star player.Dud: Taurean ThompsonAdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe freshman big man was unable to log back-to-back double-digit scoring games for only the second time in league play, as he was plagued by foul trouble and sat the bench for almost the entire second half. Thompson picked up two quick fouls to begin the second stanza, even though one appeared to be a clean block, and scored only two points in seven minutes of action.Highlight: Lydon’s one-handed putback slamWith Syracuse only leading by two after allowing its 18-point halftime lead to vanish, Tyus Battle hoisted a corner 3 that bounced off the front rim. Lydon soared in from the weak side and flushed a putback slam with his right hand to give the Orange a little more breathing room and secure his place in Saturday night’s SportsCenter Top 10.Lowlight: Tyler Roberson’s missed free throwsComing into the game, Syracuse was the best free-throw shooting team in conference play. For the most part, the Orange lived up to that billing Saturday. SU shot 23-of-30 from the charity stripe in total, but excluding Roberson, the team went 23-of-24. While Lydon, Battle, White and John Gillon hit a combined all but one foul shot, Roberson missed all six of his.Turning point: Gillon acrobatic layup to put SU up fourWith Syracuse leading by two and just over a minute left, Gillon drove the lane. Almost every time before, he kicked out since a mammoth FSU defender awaited, but this time he found space and spun a layup off the right side of the backboard to put Syracuse up four while falling to the ground.
