first_imgILOILO City – Flights from Singaporeto Iloilo and vice versa must be temporarily halted, too, according Mayor JerryTreñas, as a precautionary measure against the spread of the novel coronavirus(2019-nCoV). In letters to three airlines, he pointed out the “rising cases ofthe novel coronavirus globally.” The Iloilo Airport services twointernational flights – Iloilo to Singapore and vice versa, and Iloilo to HongKong and vice versa. Yesterday, Treñas wrote letters toCebu Pacific Air, Philippine Airlines and Air Asia that they “voluntarily ceaseyour international flights to and from countries positive with the 2019 novelcoronavirus immediately.” Treñas did not mention theSingapore-Iloilo flights in his letter to the three airlines but in mediainterviews he pointed out such service. Itseems to start with a fever, followed by a dry cough and then, after a week,leads to shortness of breath. Thethermal scanner has also been activated to detect passengers with fever – oneof the symptoms of those infected with the 2019-nCoV. Cebu Pacific already halted its HongKong-Iloilo flight beginning Feb. 4. This would stretch up to March 29,according to the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP). “Konmag ginutok to sila sa Kalibo kag may magmasakit, waay man na sila ibannga kadtuan kundi diri man gihapon sa aton. We are concerned. Ginaproteksyunan ta ang aton pumoluyodasun sige ila pa pasulod,” Treñas lamented. Both Hong Kong and Singapore havereported 2019-nCoV infections (18 and 28, respectively). PAL and Air Asia actually have noSingapore and Hong Kong flights from and to the Iloilo Airport in Cabatuan,Iloilo. Only Cebu Pacific has. Hospitalauthorities would be contacted for an ambulance that would take the passengersto the hospital for further examination. “Thesuspected cases won’t be passing the passenger terminal but through the ramp ingoing to the waiting ambulance,” Parreño stressed. Yesterday, Singapore raised itsDisease Outbreak Response System Condition (Dorscon) level from yellow toorange. This means that the nCoV infection is deemed severe and spreads easilyfrom person to person but has not spread widely and is being contained. “Feverishpassengers would be ushered to an isolation room,” said Parreño. At the Iloilo Airport, CAAP’s Parreñosaid hisagency tightened medical quarantine protocols. Bureau of Quarantine personnelhave been posted on Aerobridge 3, the designated passageway of passengers arrivingfrom Singapore. From Wuhan City, China, the 2019-nCoVhas now spread to more than 25 countries. There have been more than 28,000cases worldwide but only two of the deaths have been outside mainland China(one in the Philippines and one in Hong Kong). He also expressed concern over thecontinued entry of international flights at the Kalibo International Airport,although those from China have been temporarily stopped. Thefast-moving infection, which causes pneumonia-like symptoms, has been declareda global emergency by the World Health Organization. However, the airline is maintainingits Singapore to Iloilo flights and vice versa, according to Iloilo Airportterminal supervisor Arthur Parreño. Butin more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratorysyndrome, kidney failure and even death. Areport on the early stages of the outbreak by the Lancet medical journal saidmost patients who died from the virus had pre-existing conditions. (BBC/PN)last_img read more

first_img Willie Mullins’ charge has shown most of his best form over two miles, however, and tackles the two-mile-six-furlong trip for the first time. Usuel Smurfer may strip fitter after his return in Galway and will appreciate the good ground on offer. Bishops Road looks the likely front-runner in the race and is capable of making a bold show on the pick on his chase form. The Richard Power Private Client Betting Handicap Hurdle has attracted a good-quality field, with Beckwith Star aiming to complete a hat-trick in the 17,500 euro contest. The Henry de Bromhead-trained gelding was a game winner at Galway, following on from another narrow success over fences at Wexford previously. He still enjoys a mark 7lb lower over timber, despite a 7lb rise for his victory at Ballybrit. Patsio claimed a handicap hurdle at the May meeting in the south-east and was far from disgraced in a hot novice hurdle at Galway. He looks on a competitive mark returning to handicap company now. Coldstonesober has already been in action at the Festival, finishing fourth over fences on Thursday night. The nine-year-old takes his racing well and is sure to produce another big run for connections. Collen Beag, who won her maiden here in May, was due to try handicap company for the first time on Friday night, while the consistent Swantykay, a winner here last year, reverts to hurdles having unseated over the larger obstacles last time. There is also a good conditions chase on the card with a few smart performers lining up for the Comeragh Veterinary Kilmacthomas Chase. Upazo sets the standard off a mark of 137 and looks well treated by conditions as he gets weight from a couple of likely rivals. Five former course-and-distance winners do battle in the final-day feature at Tramore on Sunday. Press Associationlast_img read more

first_img Press Association Saunders knocked down Andy Lee twice en route to a majority decision victory at the Manchester Arena, in a bout billed as the first world title fight between two Travellers. Saunders was given the nod 114-112 and 115-111 by two of the judges, with the third scoring it a 113-113 draw, as the 26-year-old extended his perfect record to 23-0, which includes 12 knock-out wins. Frank Warren claims Billy Joe Saunders has “a lot of options” to consider for his next fight after he captured the WBO middleweight title on Saturday night.center_img When asked if a rematch with Chris Eubank Jr was next on the agenda for the Hertfordshire fighter, promoter Warren told BBC Radio 5 live: ” Bill beat him and he also beat Spike O’Sullivan, who Eubank fought last week. Will they do a rematch? I don’t know. “Eubank could have had a rematch about three or four months ago but he chose not to do so so we just moved on and Bill has now won the title and can sit back and consider a lot of options. “We’ll have a good think over Christmas, let him enjoy his Christmas and then we’ll work on the next one.” Saunders had ended Eubank Jr’s perfect record in November 2014. On the fight with Lee, Warren added: “Bill really did use his brain and I was really pleased with his performance. “I think it was a compelling fight because both of them were trying to out-think each other, there were some dramatic moments, especially when Bill knocked Andy down a couple of times. “I just thought it was a great fight to watch and for a proper boxing fan, a purist, I enjoyed it.” last_img read more

first_imgMillions Rain at Fund Raising Dinner as Okowa Gets Accolades for Keshi StadiumHost City Asaba and Delta State Government of organising the CAA Asaba 2018 African Senior Athletics Championships got a boost over the weekend as millions of naira were raised at dinner organised to raise fund for the event at Grand Hotel Asaba.Hon. Bukola Olopade the consultant for the dinner told newsmen shortly before the end of the dinner that the response of Deltans and friends of Delta was very good,“I can’t give you the exact figure now, more donations and pledges are still coming but we highly impressed by peoples’ response”. Zenith Bank Plc led the donors at the event with the sum of N300 million while Bube Dan gave N20 million, Levant Construction N20 million, Gomene N11 million, Delta State House of Assembly N7 million, Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development with N5 million, among others. Some corporate organisations and individuals made their donations anonymously.Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, his wife, Dame Okowa, Deputy Governor Kingsley Otuaro, Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, LOC Chairman Solomon Ogba, his deputy Tony Okowa,  Minister of Sports,Solomon Dalung, President of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN), Ibrahim Gusau, among numerous others attended the fundraising “In less than three weeks from today, athletes from 47 African countries, as well as officials, will begin to converge in Asaba for this historic event. It is historic in the sense that though this is the second time Nigeria will be hosting this event, this is the first to be held outside Lagos,” Governor Okowa said at the occasion.He disclosed that he accepted for Delta State to host the Championships being organised by the Confederation of African Athletics (CAA) because it provides a “glorious opportunity to further our agenda to regain Delta’s frontline status in sports by hosting this event.”“Apart from being a dominant force in the National Sports Festival in years gone by, Delta State has produced foremost international athletes such as Tony Urhobo, Maria Usifor, Violet Odogwu-Nwajei, Sunday Uti, Blessing Okagbare and many others. However, in recent times, it does seem like athletics is taking a backseat, hence, our young ones do not see much hope in pursuing a career in athletics. We believe that this event has the strong potentials to reawaken the interest and consciousness of the upcoming generation and motivate them to strive for greatness in athletics,” the governor said.He continued, “On our own, we have delivered on our promise; the Stephen Keshi Stadium is ready for the event. It was tough but, we got it done and the stadium is actually a beauty to behold.”Minister for Sports, in a speech, described Governor Okowa as a performer who saved Nigeria the shame of failing to host the tournament.“If this type of stadium is replicated in every part of Nigeria, no Nigerian will pass through the Sahara to look for greener pastures because they will be engaged. Asaba, in future, may host the world championship because of the quality of facilities at the stadium,” Barr. Dalung said, adding, “Governor Okowa is a performer, in 2019, people who have not performed should be booted out of office”.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

first_imgFor the Wisconsin men’s hockey team, the power play has been anything but powerful this year.In the WCHA, UW sits at the bottom of the WCHA in power play goals scored with seven, while the next lowest team Alaska-Anchorage has 11 power play goals.Just when they thought they had turned the corner – scoring two power play goals against Alaska-Anchorage Jan. 25 – old problems re-emerged when the Badgers played host to the Beavers from Bemidji State University Friday and Saturday.Despite earning three points on the weekend – consisting of a 2-2 tie Friday and a 3-2 win Saturday – the Badgers scored just a single goal with the man-advantage in eight power plays in the series.Against Bemidji State, UW was forced to play with three key members of the Wisconsin power play.Senior Derek Lee missed Friday with lingering effects from a concussion, while Barnes was benched Saturday for failing to report to a team meeting and sophomore defenseman Jake McCabe was unavailable either night with an ankle injury.With a revolving door of injuries and other problems affecting the lineup each night, head coach Mike Eaves chalked up the team’s power play difficulties to the fact Wisconsin has been unable to pin down a power play line that can stay healthy.“I think we can be better offensively,” Eaves said. “When we were in that two-month stretch where we didn’t lose, we were finding ways to score goals. The thing that is being indicated by not having these young men in the lineup is that we’re thin offensively. When one of these guys are out, we struggle.”And struggle they did.In their eight power plays against the Beavers, the Badgers averaged just a single shot per power play, lacking the creativity to create shots despite the man-advantage.The lone power play goal the Badgers managed to put in the back of the net against the Beavers came in the first period Friday, when freshman winger Nic Kerdiles put away a close range effort off a rebound after sophomore Brendan Woods’ original shot was blocked by the Beavers’ goaltender.The goal – Kerdiles first career goal on the power play at Wisconsin – still wasn’t enough to satisfy an increasingly frustrated Wisconsin offense.“We scored a goal,” junior center Mark Zengerle said. “But, for our unit in particular, we have to get the puck and sort it out quicker. We’ll be better if we can just get it in and get control of it. That’s probably the main thing.“[Bemidji] had us down pretty good. They were just going into the corner, hitting the other corner and getting it out.”Much like the free throw woes of the mens’ basketball team, Wisconsin hockey has spent countless hours at the rink during practice working out the kinks in their power play strategy, but actually executing those strategies – under the lights and in front of 10,000 fans in games has proved a bit more difficult for Badgers this year.“Just getting pucks on net, just keep it simple,” freshman defenseman Kevin Schulze said of UW’s power play struggle. “Sometimes we try to do too much and it’s not there. Just get pucks to the net.”“We’re going to give you the same answer,” Lee added. “We’re going to go back to work, we’re going to get pucks and bodies to the net, we’re going to try and keep it simple. That’s all we can do.”Defense falters with McCabe outWith McCabe unavailable due to an ankle injury, junior defenseman Chase Drake stepped in as his replacement, but McCabe – who has developed into one of UW’s most consistent performers in a season full of ups and downs – proved a difficult contributor to replace.Over the series, the Beavers took 27 shots on net Friday and 20 shots Saturday. While they would fail to outshoot the Badgers on either occasion, shaky play – especially as the game wore on – from UW’s defense kept Bemidji State in both games right until the final whistle.“I didn’t think our defensemen played particularly well [Saturday],” Eaves said. “I thought they struggled with the puck for whatever reason.“In soccer they talk about first touches on the ball. I thought a lot of times tonight we touched the puck and the very first thing it did was jump or hop on us and that led to some turnovers.”With a pair of key matchups against rival Minnesota in the not-so-distant future, Eaves said hard work in practice will be imperative if the Badgers defense wants to hold up against the top-ranked Golden Gophers.“We’re going to get back to work and do some of those things and just get back to some good habits,” Eaves said. ‘”We’re in the middle of a really tough stretch right now.”last_img read more

first_imgJuventus have reached an agreement with Chelsea over a deal for Maurizio Sarri, according to Sky in Italy.No official confirmation has yet been received from Chelsea but Sarri is expected to sign a three-year deal to become the new boss of the Serie A champions on Friday.Juve announced in late May head coach Massimiliano Allegri would be leaving the club but the level of compensation for Sarri had held up his return to Italy.That problem appears to have been overcome, however, with Chelsea expected to receive more than £5m, potentially leaving the way clear for Derby manager Frank Lampard to return to Stamford Bridge.Derby have not yet received any approach for their manager, Sky Sports News understands, although Lampard had stated he would discuss his future with the Rams after they failed to beat Aston Villa in the Sky Bet Championship play-off final.Whoever does replace Sarri will not be able to sign any new players, as things stand, with Chelsea having appealed against their two-window transfer ban imposed by FIFA to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.The Europa League champions were sanctioned in February for breaching rules regarding the signing of U18 foreign players, but were unsuccessful in their appeal to FIFA in May.Chelsea will start their 2019/20 Premier League campaign with a game against Manchester United at Old Trafford, after the fixtures were released on Thursday morning.last_img read more
