However, that friendly was cancelled at the 11th hour due to a positive test, and Stoke have now confirmed that manager O’Neill, rather than a player, is the person who returned that test.The 50-year-old will now be forced to enter a period of isolation, while any further cases in the Stoke camp could plunge their first match back – against Reading at the Madejski Stadium on June 20 – into doubt.“Stoke City can confirm that manager Michael O’Neill has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus following the latest round of testing on Monday (June 8),” read a statement on the club’s official website.“O’Neill had tested negative in the previous five rounds of testing.

Study: Seasonal Flu Shot Lowers Risk Of Alzheimer’s

first_imgA new study shows the seasonal flu shot can lower the risk of Alzheimer’s disease in millions of Amerians.Researchers at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference reported today that at least one flu shot was linked to a 17% reduction in Alzheimer’s. More frequent vaccinations were associated with another 13% reduction. Researchers also found the protective association between the vaccine and the risk of Alzheimer’s was strongest for those who received their first vaccine at a younger age. For example, those who go their first documented flu shot at age 60 benefited more than those who first received it at 70.While the study doesn’t explain why flu vaccinations are linked to a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease, some experts speculate the vaccine may impact brain inflammation that could lead to the disease, said Dr. Steven DeKosky, professor of neurology at the University of Florida and deputy director of UF’s McKnight Brain Institute.“The vaccine activates the immune system to defeat the flu virus itself,” he said. “The activation may have beneficial effects that fight off or slow down the inflammation associated with AD.” However, the Mayo Clinic says most scientists believe Alzheimer’s disease is caused by a combination of genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors that affect the brain over time.last_img read more

MLAX : SU feels pressure with NCAA tournament bid at stake against St. John’s in conference final

first_img Published on May 4, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Ryne: rjgery@syr.edu Comments VILLANOVA, Pa. – The weight is still heavy on the Syracuse players’ shoulders. A win over Villanova in the Big East tournament semifinals was only the first step toward reaching the NCAA tournament.Ricky Buhr expressed the desperation for his team, knowing its season is down to one game against St. John’s on Saturday. Win and SU earns an automatic bid to the tournament. Lose and the season ends with the proud program on the outside looking in for the first since 2007.But head coach John Desko was quick to step in with a different message.‘We haven’t approached it that way,’ Desko said after his team’s 15-6 victory over Villlanova on Thursday. ‘We’ve approached it as a great opportunity this week to come out and hopefully have two lacrosse games under our belt in the Big East tournament.’Third-seeded Syracuse (8-7) now has just one game left to play in the Big East tournament, when it faces No. 4 seed St. John’s (8-6) in the championship at noon on Saturday. The Red Storm upset top-seeded Notre Dame 8-7 in the first game on Thursday to set up a surprising final matchup with the Orange. SU defeated St. John’s 9-8 when the teams met on March 10 during the regular season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNearly two months later, both entered the postseason with slim chances to receive an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. But after Thursday, the winner of the championship game will lock up a spot in the field.For Syracuse, a win would erase a disappointing regular season in which the Orange finished 7-7 and struggled in every facet of the game. And while Desko tried to diffuse the pressure surrounding his team heading into the postseason, SU midfielder Bobby Eilers called Syracuse’s position ‘do-or-die.’After practice Friday, close defender Brian Megill said Syracuse can only focus on its game against St. John’s.‘We’re only guaranteed 60 minutes of lacrosse for the rest of the season,’ Megill said. ‘There’s no more, no less when that first faceoff starts so we’re coming out, we’re leaving it all on the field and we’re having no regrets.’Desko said he anticipates a competitive game with a Red Storm team enjoying its most successful season in program history. St. John’s is confident coming off its upset of Notre Dame, in which goaltender Jeff Lowman made 13 saves and the Red Storm offense overcame a 4-of-18 faceoff performance to outplay the Fighting Irish.SJU employed a similar formula combining stellar goaltending with efficiency on offense to take the Orange to the wire in a back-and-forth game in March.But Desko also expects to see a different team on Saturday.‘We got to be ready, we got to know who they are, we got to know who their personnel are because it has been a long time since they played them,’ Desko said.Syracuse got a glimpse of the Red Storm as they put the finishing touches on their upset win over Notre Dame on Thursday.Waiting beyond the end zone, the Orange looked on as they waited to take the field for the second game of the day. The SU players saw St. John’s hold off Notre Dame in a frantic finish for a one-goal victory before jogging onto the field as the Red Storm celebrated and the Irish players consoled one another.Heading into Saturday, the scene represented a golden opportunity for Syracuse.The Orange lost to Notre Dame, the No. 2 team in the nation, last weekend, but the Red Storm’s upset changed the entire conference tournament, opening up a chance for a team to sneak into the NCAA tournament.Goaltender Bobby Wardwell said SU doesn’t see the Red Storm as any less of a challenge.‘I think we all know that St. John’s is a great team and they’ve done a lot this season so far,’ Wardwell said Friday. ‘We had a one-goal game with them at the beginning of the season, so now we just have to come out and be ready for battle.’For Desko, the opportunity to fight for an NCAA tournament bid is all his team wanted coming into the weekend. But for his players, the success of their season depends on them seizing that opportunity.Syracuse knows its season comes down to one game on Saturday. And it’s not ready to breathe a sigh of relief yet.‘There’s definitely no weight off our shoulders yet. We’re still stuck in the woods and we just need to get out in order to make the playoffs,’ Buhr said. ‘Hopefully we’ll come out on top and then it’s a new season.’rjgery@syr.educenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Polish restrictions hamper 2018 progress for bet-at-home

first_img StumbleUpon Fortuna completes Playtech IMS upgrade for Polish profile May 7, 2020 Related Articles Polish wagering report highlights STS market dominance  August 17, 2020 Frankfurt Xetra-listed online bookmaker bet-at-home has credited its strong marketing investment for reporting €66.6 million betting and gaming revenue for H1 2018. The operator also outlined that the elevated restrictions in Poland this year, led to its gross betting and gaming revenue declining 13.3% from the corresponding period in 2017. In spite of the World Cup group stage taking place in the first half of this year, the group also saw a decline in the volume of bets for the current period, something that it also stated was down to the heightened restrictions on foreign operators in the Polish market. Emphasising the current state of play in Poland, the group’s CEO Franz Ömer, told SBC earlier in the year that: “A modified gambling law came into force in Poland on 1 April 2017 under which sports betting licences are granted to foreign operators at unprofitable conditions. However, the casino offering is restricted exclusively to a state-owned company.“We consider this to be contrary to the laws of the European Union, and since July 2017 we have been faced with blocking mechanisms that are in breach of EU law. It is therefore of even greater satisfaction that we can look back on such positive growth over the last financial year.”Mapping out plans for the rest of 2018, the group outlined: “From the current perspective, and assuming an unchanged regulatory and tax law environment, the Management Board expects gross betting and gaming revenue increasing to €150 million in the 2018 fiscal year. Furthermore, the Management Board assumes EBITDA to reach a level between €36 million and €40 million in 2018.” Submit Share Mateusz Juroszek – Non-stop STS will expand amid industry disruptions August 12, 2020 Sharelast_img read more
