Gov. Wolf: Sec. of Health Signs Expanded Mask-Wearing Order

first_img Press Release,  Public Health Masks Are Mandatory in All Public SpacesExpanding on the business safety order signed by Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine in April that requires the wearing of masks in businesses, Governor Tom Wolf today announced a new order signed by Dr. Levine that takes the mask-wearing directive one step further.With this order, signed under Dr. Levine’s authority under the Disease Prevention and Control Act, masks must be worn whenever anyone leaves home. The order takes effect immediately.“This mask-wearing order is essential to stopping the recent increase in COVID-19 cases we have seen in Pennsylvania,” Gov. Wolf said. “Those hot spots can be traced to situations where Pennsylvanians were not wearing masks or practicing social distancing – two practices that must be adhered to if we want to maintain the freedoms we have in place under our reopening.”The order outlines the situations when a mask must be worn and includes limited exceptions to the face-covering requirement.Each of the state’s mitigation efforts has helped to slow the spread of COVID-19, kept our health care systems from being overwhelmed, and allowed for Gov. Wolf’s measured, phased reopening to proceed. But, with nearly every county is the green phase of reopening, complacency cannot be the norm.“It is essential that Pennsylvanians wear masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine said. “While cases increase in some areas, we cannot become complacent. My mask protects you, and your mask protects me. Wearing a mask shows that you care about others, and that you are committed to protecting the lives of those around you.”More and more health experts have called for mask wearing, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who said during a June 30 Senate hearing on COVID-19, “Americans who don’t wear masks may ‘propagate the further spread of infection.’”The mask-wearing order will be sent to state and local officials, law enforcement and others tasked with education about the order for those not in compliance.Ver esta página en español.

Varma laments European growth ‘fraught with uncertainties’ as returns slow

first_imgHe said the markets had recovered from the post-Brexit slump surprisingly quickly, and were now focused once more on central bank easing moves. Noting that equity markets were indeed helped by central banks injecting more money after every setback, Rytsölä said: “The question is, how long can Europe’s other problems be swept under the rug with the help of ultra-light monetary policies?” In absolute terms, Varma’s investment result was narrowly positive in the second quarter at €21m alone, but this did little to mitigate the €754m first quarter loss within first-half results.Unlisted equities and private equities generated the highest returns for Varma between January and June, returning at 13.5% and 4.0% respectively, with the return for unlisted equities up from 6.4% in the same period last year and the private equities return down from 6.6%.Equity investments ended the January-to-June period with a 3.1% loss, compared with an 8.3% profit in the first half of 2015, but fixed-income investments made a profit of 2.2%, up from 0.3%.Real estate, meanwhile, produced a 2.6% return, compared to 3.4% in the same period last year.Solvency levels weakened to 28.3% of technical provisions or €9.1bn, from 31.4% or €10.0bn at the end of December.Risto Murto, Varma’s president and chief executive, said the company had recovered well from the financial crisis and that its solvency was at a high level despite equity market volatility.“For pension investors, the markets have been quite sluggish for more than a year now, in a zero interest rate and zero return environment,” he said.Rytsölä said one major difference between Europe’s and the US’s ability to emerge from the financial crisis was the state of their banks.“US banks were cleaned up faster, which helped get the nation’s economy back on its feet,” he said. Finnish pensions insurer Varma reported a 0.3% loss on investments in the first half as its CIO bemoaned the lack of sustainable economic growth in Europe, saying extreme monetary easing was only masking other problems in the continent.In its interim report, Varma said the first half loss compared with the 4.3% profit generated in the same period last year.The company’s total pension assets dipped to €41.3bn from €41.6bn at the end of December.Varma’s executive vice-president and CIO Reima Rytsölä said: “Sustainable economic growth has been highly anticipated in Europe, but the path to growth always seems to be fraught with new uncertainties.”last_img read more

P.J. Hill no ‘Great Dayne’ as of now

first_imgBy now every Badger fan has probably heard the comparison of redshirt freshman running back P.J. Hill to former University of Wisconsin great Ron Dayne.Both have similar burly frames and use them in the same way — bowling straight over defenders in a punishing manner, neither being the juking and jiving type whatsoever.Also, both are from the greater New York area — Dayne hailing from New Jersey and Hill from Elmhurst, N.Y., though Hill wasn’t even a teenager when Dayne won the 1999 Heisman trophy.And even more so, Hill has jumped out to a hot start in his first year, already amassing more than 1,000 rushing yards in Wisconsin’s first seven games — just like Dayne, who ran for 1,863 yards in his freshman season before going on to set the NCAA Division I-A rushing record.But that’s where the comparisons stop.Dayne was one of the greatest running backs in NCAA history — regardless of his currently lackluster pro career — and it’s way too early to even mention the two in the same sentence.Dayne made his name in the Rose Bowl — both of them. Even though Dayne was a consistently amazing player as a four-year starter, it wasn’t until his junior and senior seasons that he began to receive national recognition when the Badgers made the Rose Bowl both years.Against UCLA in 1999 and Stanford in 2000, Dayne rushed for 246 and 200 yards, respectively, en route to winning MVP honors in both games — becoming one of only four other players to win two Rose Bowl MVP awards in NCAA history.Not until Hill can do the same in a similarly big game should he be measured up to Dayne in any sense. The biggest game Hill has played in during his young career so far was the Sept. 23 game at Michigan and while he was one of the only Badgers to show up, he didn’t have a jaw-dropping game by any means — rushing and receiving for 118 total yards, with a touchdown. And looking at the Badgers’ remaining schedule, it doesn’t appear as though he’ll have the opportunity to shine in a big game this season, depending on what Bowl game Wisconsin earns.However, this is not to take away from Hill.While Hill is certainly reminiscent of “The Great Dayne,” he is his own player, making a name for himself.Coming into the 2006 season, Wisconsin’s hole at running back was a big question.Brian Calhoun had bolted to the NFL in April, and Booker Stanley was kicked off the team for his legal troubles, leaving the Badgers with only Hill, senior Dywon Rowan, junior Jamil Walker and incoming freshman Lance Smith — a group with only 232 rushing yards between them prior to this season.But Hill, who sat out last season with a broken leg, emerged from the pack early this season and has established himself as, arguably, the best player on the team. Game in and game out, Hill has been a major factor in every Badger win so far; whether it has been flashy or not is a complete different question.But that’s just the type of player Hill is — a workhouse. Like all Badger running backs who came before him — Dayne, Michael Bennett, Anthony Davis and Brian Calhoun — Hill will take carry after carry and just rack up the yards by continuing to pound the ball over the course of a game.The comparisons between Hill and Dayne are tempting, but they need to be silenced until Hill 1) even completes one season; 2) leads the Badgers to victory in a big game; 3) plays in a Bowl game; and 4) is at least a favorite for the Heisman.Then, and only then, should Hill be compared to Dayne. But Hill shouldn’t be worried about it anyway — he has the skills to one day put his own number on the Camp Randall façade.Michael is a senior double majoring in journalism and communication arts.

Syracuse comeback hopes undone by 3 late Notre Dame goals in 5-1 defeat

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ More than 25 minutes into the second half, Syracuse was in familiar territory — behind. The Orange faced a two-goal deficit, but unlike its last two games against then-No. 23 North Carolina State and No. 3 North Carolina, a result was within reach. Before it mounted a big comeback, however, it needed a single goal.With less than 20 minutes remaining, Kate Hostage received the ball on the outskirts of the penalty area, turned, shrugged off Notre Dame’s Camryn Dyke and created space to get off a shot. The sophomore drove it low and at goalkeeper Brooke Littman, who parried it right to Georgia Allen. Allen made no mistake from close range, poking it into the net to bring the Orange within one.The goal brought hope to Syracuse (3-12, 0-7 Atlantic Coast) but proved insignificant in the end, as Notre Dame (7-8, 3-4) tallied three goals in the final 12 minutes of the game to outlast SU, 5-1, on Saturday night at SU Soccer Stadium. The loss marks the Orange’s 10th straight, extending a program record. SU has not won since Sept. 2.“It was a fairly tight game,” SU head coach Phil Wheddon said. “Both sides were creating chances, but we were unable to finish the chances we had.”No players were made available for comment after the loss.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFor the third-straight game, Syracuse scored a goal, something it couldn’t do during a four-game stretch from Sept. 16 to 29. In all three games, its goals have been timely. Against NC State, Sydney Brackett found the net in the third minute to give the Orange an early advantage. Against UNC, Meghan Root’s first-half strike brought SU within one. Saturday, Allen’s late goal did the same.But in each game, Syracuse’s goal has been cancelled by bunches of goals from the opposition. The Wolfpack went on to score five-straight goals in an eventual 6-3 win. The Tar Heels also scored five straight en route to a 7-1 victory. Saturday, the Fighting Irish turned its lead from one to four in less than 15 minutes. Again, the Orange were on the wrong end of a blowout.“We went into a strict 4-3-3, so we pushed players further up the field,” Wheddon said about what caused Notre Dame’s late goals. “That means you have less players defending. You have to take chances to score goals.”SU’s sole bright spot in the first half came when Victoria Hill, Root and Allen linked up in the Fighting Irish’s defensive half. Root dribbled the ball down the right wing and found Hill cutting inside, who turned and drove the ball waist-level to Allen at the top of the penalty area. The striker’s deft touch dropped the ball directly to her left before she spun and swung her right foot through it. The strike was pure, but it went straight at Notre Dame goalkeeper Brooke Littman.Allen’s attempt was one of three Syracuse shots in the first half.The Orange’s failure to create consistent, dangerous attacks in the first half prompted Wheddon to change his tactics. The 11-year SU head coach shifted from a 4-5-1 to a 4-3-3 to start the second half, pushing the wingers higher up the field and leaving gaps in the midfield.“We recognized that when we put them under some pressure, they panicked a little bit,” Wheddon said. “We made the decision at half time that we were going to come out and press them.”For more than 30 minutes, the formation change benefited Syracuse. Substitute Laurel Ness provided width on the left wing and fired two shots during her time on the field — one slow and at the goalkeeper, the other fast and 10 feet over the crossbar. Unlike the first half, much of the play took place in the Fighting Irish’s defensive half. The Orange doubled its shot total from the first 45 minutes and ended the night with nine.SU’s pressure continued to build up until Allen’s goal. Now within one, all the Orange needed was one goal to halt their losing streak and earn their first result in the ACC. Rather, the Fighting Irish refound their first-half form, using quick, precise passing and speed to devastate Syracuse’s defense.With 11 minutes remaining, Notre Dame’s Sammi Fisher beat goalkeeper Jordan Harris to the ball, dribbled around her, and tucked it in. Six minutes later, Jennifer Westendorf headed in a corner kick. Four minutes later, Karin Muya notched her second goal of the night, dribbling through two SU defenders before finding the bottom left corner. A close game had rapidly turned into an embarrassing one for the Orange.“I thought it was working, I thought we had some good spells,” Wheddon said about SU’s second half adjustments. “It doesn’t matter if you have good spells if you shoot yourself in the foot.” Comments Published on October 13, 2018 at 10:01 pm Contact David: ddschnei@syr.edulast_img read more

Why I Quit Libya Job, By Amrouche

first_imgAdel Amrouche has revealed that he quit his position as head coach of the Libya national team over interference in his job and the failure of the soccer authorities to pay his salary in the past six months.Amrouche left his post on Tuesday, four days to the Mediterranean Knights’ crucial 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against the Super Eagles of Nigeria at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium, Uyo.The North Africans will host the Super Eagles in the reverse fixture on October 16 in Sfax, Tunisia. Adel Amrouche… former Libya Coach The Algerian tactician’s reign as the Mediterranean Knights of Libya coach lasted only six months.“The first problem is about my two assistants. It was stipulated in my contract that I will be the one to pay the assistants, but the flight tickets and hotel accommodation was to be sorted by the federation in all games and camp meetings,” Amrouche told Soka25east.com.After our game against South Africa some people in the federation took a decision to stop my two assistants from working for no apparent reason because they prefer bringing their own friends to do nothing to the team but to earn money.That is a big joke.“How would I work effectively without the very same people that help me work effectively job as Libya coach.”Amrouche speaks about the failure of the Libya Football Federation to meet up with their financial obligation to him.“I have been working for six months without a single coin paid to me and I have still been able to give 100 percent. I love my job and sometimes its not all about money, but principles must be followed or else people will take you for a ride,” Amrouche added.“I had already built a very strong team and many Libyans were happy as they had never seen them play that level of game, but suddenly some people at the federation decided to interfere with my job, they even wanted some particular players which to me is next to impossible.“I cannot work in such conditions, that is why I have decided enough is enough as you know I was not given the name Architect for no reason, its because I like to perform.”Libya top Group E with four points from one win and a draw from their opening two games in the qualifiers.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
