ILOILO City – Mayor Jerry Treñas would no longer allow home quarantine for all returning locally stranded individuals (LSIs) from other provinces and cities. “I and the Iloilo City COVID team decided to disallow LSIs to go on home quarantine,” Treñas said in a statement on Wednesday. He also ordered to stop the use of rapid antibody test kits in screening these LSIs for SARS-coV-2, the virus that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). It’s difficult to ensure that these LSIs will stay inside their homes for the duration of the quarantine, Treñas admitted. Arriving LSIs in Iloilo City starting today would now be housed in quarantine facilities. Mayor Jerry Treñas. ARNOLD ALMACEN/CMO On May 25 President Rodrigo Duterte ordered concerned government agencies to bring home all overseas Filipino workers and other people stuck in Metro Manila and elsewhere due to the quarantine. “They would be isolated either in a hotel or local government facility,” the mayor added. Camalig village head Nestor Loma said while under home quarantine, the LSI – who is now Western Visayas Patient No. 174 – had a drinking session together his relatives and neighbors prior to the release of his real time-polymerase reaction tests (RT-PCR). Barangay Camalig was placed under lockdown on Sunday, June 21 and will last until the RT-PCR test results of the LSI’s close contacts will be released. He cited several reports that some LSIs were defying health authorities’ advice to observe the mandatory 14-day home-quarantine. Yesterday, local authorities ordered the lockdown of at least 20 houses at Barangay Camalig’s Zone 5 in Jaro district after an LSI who recently returned there tested positive for the viral disease. “Sa mga LSIs nga nagalagaw kag indi madakpan sang aton compliance officers, ako na lang ang madakop sa inyo,” Treñas warned. There at least 100 individuals living in the 20 houses but not all of them had exposure to the patient. Last June 11, Treñas issued Memorandum Order No. 159 enforcing strict implementation of the 14-day home quarantine of all LSIs and overseas Filipino workers who will arrive in Iloilo City beginning on 16 June 2020 onwards until a vaccine to eradicate COVID-19 is readily available to the general public. These past few weeks, LSIs returning to Iloilo from Cebu and other parts of the country were not required to pass RT-PCR tests. They were only asked to present a travel authority and certificate stating they completed 14 days of quarantine. Loma, however, could not yet determine the exact number of the LSI’s close contacts. The agencies concerned were the Department of Labor and Employment, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration and Department of Health./PN
Having missed out on Timo Werner, Jurgen Klopp and Co are reportedly scouring the market for an alternative. Dembele has been previously linked but the price always looked prohibitive. Now Mundo Deportivo, via Sport Witness, claims Barcelona have informed Liverpool of a new, low asking price for Dembele. As per the report, Barca will now let Dembele leave for a price of between €50m and €60m. They claim Barca want the player off their wage bill to free up a space and wages for their summer rebuild programme. The France winger has disappointed greatly since a €105m switch from Borussia Dortmund in 2017. He’s made 74 appearances during his time at the Nou Camp and scored 19 times.Advertisement Liverpool are once again strongly considering a move for Ousmane Dembele, according to reports in Spain. Loading… Mundo Deportivo though state they’ve lowered his asking price with just two years left on his deal. They report ‘Barca’s position with Dembele is realistic’. read also:Dembele not ready for Juve It’s even suggested Barcelona will consider a loan to buy offer for Dembele.

“Arouna is similar and I expect him to be involved again before the season end, which is an incredible credit to the medical department. “Ross Barkley has had a bit of pain (having played two games after a broken toe) but it is normal so I expect him to be fully fit and available for Sunday.” The 6ft 8in striker Traore is yet to feature in a match-day squad following his arrival from Monaco late last month but is on the verge of a return from a hamstring injury. “Lacina is progressing really well, I just need to assess whether it is wise to give him playing time,” added Martinez. “He is fully fit from a medical point of view it is just a matter of giving him the right playing time over the next two or three weeks because the last thing we want is for Lacina to push himself and get stretched trying to achieve the tempo of the Premier League. “He has been a breath of fresh air on the training pitch, he has a hungry approach to everything he does and so we are excited to see him fully fit.” Forward Gerard Deulofeu will travel with the squad for Sunday’s match at Tottenham after being out with a hamstring problem since mid-December while new loan signing Lacina Traore also has a chance of being included for the first time. Full-back Seamus Coleman, an unused substitute in last weekend’s win over Aston Villa after injury, is set to return to the starting line-up. Lukaku, who was ruled out for weeks rather than months after being carried off with an ankle injury in the Merseyside derby at Anfield on January 28, is set to return to full fitness within a fortnight. However, with that timescale taking him up to the game against parent club Chelsea it seems more likely March 1 at home to West Ham will mark his playing comeback. There was even positive news on long-term casualties Darron Gibson and Arouna Kone who are both ahead of schedule in rehabilitation from knee operations. “Seamus Coleman has come through training ever so well, Antolin (Alcaraz) is going to be out of the weekend but there is nothing to be worried about – we’re just trying to get him back to full fitness,” said manager Roberto Martinez. “Romelu Lukaku will be out for this weekend and probably the week after but I don’t expect him to be any longer as he has been recovering really well. “Everyone else is fully fit and available apart from the three long-term absentees of Bryan Oviedo (broken leg), Arouna and Darron. “Darron is progressing really well and I feel he will be back before the season ends, which is a real bonus. “Maybe it is a bit too early to give a clear date when he will be back but I expect him to be playing again in May, which is credit to his hard work and the way he is recovering. Press Association Everton’s short-term injury problems appear to be over with only on-loan striker Romelu Lukaku still sidelined, and even he is expected to be fit within a fortnight.
“Sometimes when you look at performances where we didn’t get the result we wanted or deserved you are looking at our defensive display as a team and it wasn’t as solid or intense,” he added. “I thought today the difference was as a team we stopped Aston Villa carrying a threat and that is an incredible achievement. “I thought we were very clever, very mature with what we did and defensively we looked very solid. (Goalkeeper) Tim Howard had little to do but when he had to he was phenomenal. “To keep that clean sheet against the set-up of Aston Villa pleases me a lot.” Villa have now lost four successive league matches without scoring for the first time since January 2001. “I don’t think we deserved anything. I thought we started the game slow and that is not like us, normally we have come out of the traps quickly,” Villa boss Paul Lambert said. “Today was the first time I felt, with the run of games we’ve had, they hadn’t justified themselves by playing the way they play. “The goals were poor from our point of view. The first we have to stop the cross better, the second Brad (Guzan) thinks he should have saved it – that is coming from a guy that has saved us on many occasions – and the third goal is a ridiculous goal to lose. “I don’t think we did enough to win the game.” The 20-year-old played 65 minutes after recovering from a knee injury on the eve of the campaign and was instrumental in the 3-0 victory against Aston Villa, pulling the strings as Phil Jagielka and Romelu Lukaku scored before Seamus Coleman, also coming back from injury, added the third. Martinez admits he was not considering Barkley for selection until the youngster changed his mind in a training session on Thursday. “The truth is eight days ago he was not an option in my mind to start the game,” said the Spaniard. “We benefited from the international break and he has been working individually and as a group and was phenomenal. “On Thursday he put the ball in the top corner out of nothing and scored three goals in a little exercise we did and it was his way of telling everyone he was ready and he was desperate to be on the pitch. “The way he trained I had no doubts and there was no risk from a medical point of view. “The only doubt was how long he could last and he lasted longer than I expected and some of his movement off the ball early looked as if he had played every game this season. “Sometimes you ask if he was born to play football. As human beings you are not born to kick a ball but he looks more natural with a ball than without it. “He has a phenomenal knack to be born to play football. I thought he was sensational in that respect.” Everton began the day with the worst defensive record in the Barclays Premier League but only a second clean sheet of the season pleased Martinez as much as the display at the other end of the pitch. Everton manager Roberto Martinez hailed the return of Ross Barkley after the England international’s first appearance of the season contributed to their first home league win. Press Association
Ramsey believes three wins in the last five games will be enough to secure Barclays Premier League survival this season. Rangers sit second bottom of the table and two points adrift of safety. Three points looks essential against the Hammers given QPR’s next two matches are away to Manchester City and Liverpool, before they finish against Newcastle and Leicester. “If you win three games you’re probably going to stay up,” Ramsey said. “As long as we’re above the line come the end of May we’ll be happy. “I just care if we win. I just take care of our own game. If we don’t get good results it doesn’t matter what the others do. “We know the enormity of the task ahead but you can only plan and prepare as best you can and what happens, happens. “We understand there is pressure in these last few games. Fer is close to overcoming a knee injury that has kept him out since February, while Yun Suk-young is also available having recovered from concussion. Richard Dunne is fit again after returning from a knee injury but Rio Ferdinand Eduardo Vargas and Alejandro Faurlin remain sidelined. “I can’t say I don’t feel pressure but it depends on how you deal with it.” West Ham will be unable to welcome back any of their injured players. Sam Allardyce’s Hammers have won just once in their last 12 games and are still without James Tomkins (shoulder), Andy Carroll (knee) and Diafra Sakho (thigh). Meanwhile, a calf injury picked up by full-back Guy Demel has also left Allardyce short of options in defence. Allardyce wants his players to match the fight shown by the clubs threatened with relegation. With both Rangers and Burnley coming up against the Hammers in the next week, Allardyce’s side could yet have a big say on which teams fall into the Sky Bet Championship at the end of the season. Having started the season in impressive style, the Hammers now sit 10th and a top-half finish is under threat – with Allardyce issuing a rally cry and using a recent defeat at struggling Leicester as an example of what can happen if his team are not at the races. “Coming up is QPR away, another local derby, then Burnley at home,” he said. “They are fighting for their lives and we experienced that at Leicester. We played extremely well at Leicester and shouldn’t have lost the game but Leicester are fighting for their lives so we have to match the fight that QPR have and Burnley will have here. “The players have to realise they are not on the beach yet – far from it. The focus should be that we want to finish on a high. “People think we’re having a bad season because our bad run is coming at the end of the season. Finishing the season well gives everyone a high going into the summer. “We wanted to finish with more points than we’ve ever managed and we should’ve achieved that a long time ago. “After Christmas we were in a good position and we thought we might be able achieve a bit more than that. But we’ve made life difficult for ourselves.” QPR manager Chris Ramsey will make a late decision on whether to risk Leroy Fer for Saturday’s crucial match at home to West Ham. Press Association

Latest Posts Part 2: When the injury is inside your head, some “don’t get it” – July 26, 2016 Bio BLUE HILL — It took last season’s George Stevens Academy boys’ basketball team three games for things to start clicking for the young Eagles squad.After opening the 2014-2015 season with three straight losses, GSA didn’t drop another game, notching a 15-3 record heading into the postseason.The Eagles’ regular season winning streak continues. This past week, GSA improved to 7-0 with wins over Sumner (3-4), previously undefeated Lee (5-2) and Penquis (1-6).George Stevens Academy’s Khemani Peasley drives for a layup against Sumner on Thursday.PHOTO BY TAYLOR VORTHERMS“We were really young last year, and the young players played a lot,” GSA coach Dwayne Carter said. “They have a lot of experience.”This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textOne of those young players is sophomore guard Taylor Schildroth, who scored 30 points, including five 3-pointers, in GSA’s 78-58 win over Sumner on Thursday.Carter shrugged after that game, noting Sumner’s 58 points was the most any team has scored against GSA this season. Alex O’Hara led Sumner with 20 points while Issiac Christiansen chipped in 12.“A coach is never happy,” Carter said with a smile. “I’m glad we won, but there are some things I’d like us to do better.”Perhaps Carter has raised his standards because a 20-point deficit isn’t uncommon for GSA opponents. The Eagles have won six of their seven games by similar margins. Calais, which lost to GSA by 16 points on Dec. 12, is the closest a team has gotten to closing that gap.However, Carter said Thursday he expected Saturday’s game at Lee to be a challenge. But GSA outscored Lee 40-25 in the second half to win a battle of unbeatens 69-47.Nicholas Szwez, a 6-foot-4 senior, helped pace the Eagles with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Szwez is one of nine players on GSA’s roster who are 6 feet or taller.“We’re a tall team,” Carter said. “Sumner was pretty tall. But other than them, I think we’re the tallest, overall, of all the teams we play.”Other GSA scorers in Saturday’s win over Lee included 6-foot-5 sophomore Max Mattson with 18 points and Schildroth with 15.GSA’s latest win came Tuesday when the Eagles topped Penquis 70-39. Khemani Peasley led GSA with 16 points, and Mattson tallied 15 and 10 rebounds. Szwez grabbed another 12 rebounds.Carter said this season’s GSA squad is one of the most committed teams he has ever coached.“They show up before practice, sometimes an hour and a half before, and shoot,” Carter said. “It’s to the point I have to say, ‘Guys, that’s too long to be in here. When we have a two-hour practice, you shouldn’t be in here for three.’Sumner’s Alex O’Hara dribbles past a George Stevens Academy player on Thursday.PHOTO BY TAYLOR VORTHERMS“This team is like that. They are really driven to be better.”The Eagles’ practice appears to have paid off, as they are not afraid to take shots from behind the 3-point arc. Schildroth hit four 3-pointers against Penquis while senior guard Will Entwisle added two.“The biggest difference this season is our confidence and maturity,” Carter said. “We’re not freshmen anymore.”GSA will compete next at Searsport (4-3) on Tuesday.Bucksport 68, Lee 64Riley McLeod led all scorers with 26 points, including 12 from the free-throw line, to propel Bucksport (4-2) past Lee on Tuesday.

SYDNEY (Reuters) – Australia coach Darren Lehmann defended the squad selection for the Ashes opener on Sunday and urged former players to back the team as they prepare to try and wrest the famous urn back from English hands.Spin-bowling great Shane Warne was among the former players who questioned decision to include wicketkeeper Tim Paine, while the inclusion of veteran batsman Shaun Marsh also raised a few eyebrows.Speaking in Brisbane, where the series gets underway at the Gabba on Thursday, Lehmann justified the selections and called for the whole country to support the team.“Everyone is entitled to their opinion, aren’t they?” he said.“I’d just like all our players, ex-players, to be really positive about the Australian cricket team. Let’s just get everyone from Australia behind the Australian cricket team and let’s get moving forward.”Paine, who played the last of his four tests seven years ago, was the most controversial selection mainly because he does not even keep wickets for his state Tasmania.”We’ve watched him keep a fair bit,“ Lehmann added. ”He’s a high quality keeper.“He’s been in good form with the gloves, as he always has been, and he has been very good for us in the T20s.”Few players are more divisive in Australia than 34-year-old Marsh, who looks likely to fill the number six slot in the batting order on his eighth recall to the test side.”He’s in good form, so he’ll do well,“ Lehmann added. ”He’s pretty calm.“He’s grown up a lot in the last few years and played some important knocks for us. He’s really confident within himself.”Lehmann said also said Australia would not be distracted by reports from England that suspended all-rounder Ben Stokes could be cleared to play a part in the series by police this week.Vice captain Stokes has been suspended since being arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm outside a Bristol nightclub in September.A report in Britain’s Daily Telegraph said that police would make a decision over whether to charge Stokes this week, potentially leaving him clear to join the England squad before the second Test in Adelaide.“We can’t worry about it at the moment,” Lehmann said. “For us it’s more of a case of dealing with the squad they’ve got here.”

ESI: What can attendees expect to hear from your involvement in the ‘Brand Ambassadors’ panel? Doubtless there’ll be ample NiP chat…Adam: I am looking forward to discussing Betway’s ventures into brand ambassadors though both the NiP players as well as multiple other influencers. Betway is leading the way with their use of brand ambassadors, and I look forward to discussing the lessons that have been learned along the way.Betting on Esports 2017 is taking place at the Olympia in London over September 13-15. It’ll have six esports panels with over 25 speakers and a dedicated esports exhibition zone. It’s a part of #boscon2017 which’ll have over 1,000 delegates in attendance.Find out more about it here Adam Savinson is the Head of Esports at Win Technologies Betway Group. As one of the leading lights in bookmakers offering esports markets, we’re delighted he’s joining our ‘Brand Ambassadors – what to do about these in esports?’ panel at Betting on Esports 2017 in September (13-15). Adam Savinson, Win Technologies Betway GroupJoining him on that panel is an impressive line-up of experts including Kinguin CEO Viktor Wanli, ESP.Bet and Esportspools CEO Scott Burton, Strive Sponsorship MD Malph Minns. Esports Insider: Why did you decide to speak at Betting on Esports 2017?Adam Savinson: Speaking at Betting on Esports was a no brainer! There are very few conferences in the year where I am able to sit beside other experts in the industry; let alone in front of an audience that truly understands and believes in esports betting. I have no doubt that it will be a fantastic event.“There is no secret behind Betway’s success in content and marketing, they are just making content that people want to watch, and advertising where the eyeballs are”ESI: Where do you see the future of regulated esports betting going? Do you ever see the game publishers working with this industry?Adam: Regulated esports betting definitely has a bright future, and it has been a fantastic experience being involved in its growth. I think that Betway’s ESL One Cologne sponsorship has really been a landmark in acceptance of regulated betting companies getting involved with tournaments at the highest level.“Three words, Knowledge, Authenticity and Creativity. The esports audience will ignore you if you don’t share their passion”While I believe that it is extremely important that game publishers get involved with the industry to assist in improving integrity (alongside organisations like ESIC); I don’t think the game publishers need to get more involved. Any advertising restrictions will be surely lifted as the industry moves towards localised leagues in the long term.ESI: Can you give some insight into your content and marketing strategy at Betway Esports? Clearly it’s been paying off in terms of exposure…Adam: There is no secret behind Betway’s success in content and marketing, they are just making content that people want to watch, and advertising where the eyeballs are. Getting involved with NiP a year ago has definitely put them into the spotlight; however Betway now get great exposure for their own unique content.ESI: What three characteristics would you suggest to a bookmaker in terms of social media strategy looking to engage fans of different esports? Adam: In three words, Knowledge, Authenticity and Creativity. The esports audience will ignore you if you don’t share their passion.
