first_imgThe epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in Latin America, Brazil’s Sao Paulo state, said Monday it expects 111,000 deaths in the next six months, and extended its stay-at-home measures another two weeks.The forecast — an official projection, the state government said — would appear to put Brazil on track to become one of the worst-hit countries in the world.The global death toll from the virus currently stands at 70,000, according to a tally compiled by AFP. Topics : Without containment measures, Sao Paulo — whose capital is the mega-city of the same name — would register 270,000 deaths in the next six months, said the head of the state’s public health research institute, Dimas Covas.Brazil has been the Latin American country hit hardest by the new coronavirus, with 553 deaths and more than 12,000 confirmed cases so far.Health experts warn under-testing means the real number is likely much higher.Sao Paulo, a state whose population of 46 million makes it about the size as Spain, has seen more infections and deaths than any other.The state is probably facing another 1,300 deaths this week, Covas said.The governor has openly clashed over containment measures with far-right President Jair Bolsonaro, who claims they are needlessly wrecking the economy over a disease he has compared to a “little flu.”center_img Sao Paulo, the teeming industrial hub where the new coronavirus first appeared in Latin America, has confirmed 4,620 cases and 275 deaths so far.Governor Joao Doria, who closed non-essential businesses on March 24 and advised people to stay home, said containment measures would be needed for at least two more weeks or the situation would get far worse.”If we continue seeing people in the streets and gathering unnecessarily, we will go to more restrictive measures,” he told a news conference.Police are already authorized to break up crowds by force if necessary, he said.last_img read more

first_imgArsenal hitman, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, was Frank Lampard’s number one strike target, but the Chelsea boss and technical and performance director Petr Cech were both overruled by the board as they pushed for the signing of Timo Werner.

Notching an incredible 31 goals in 41 appearances in all competitions this season, the 24-year-old had attracted the interest from a number of Premier League clubs. With the player previously expressing his desire to move to Anfield, many predicted The Reds would activate Werner’s release clause of around £50m. However, Liverpool and Klopp’s interest waned, and Chelsea swooped in to secure the services of one of Europe’s most clinical finishers. Despite this, a remarkable report from British newspaper The Metro (who cite The Athletic’s Ornstein and Chapman podcast) has revealed that Blues boss Lampard had pushed to sign Arsenal’s Aubameyang instead. The Gabon superstar’s contract at The Emirates expires next summer, and with no new deal seemingly in the works, speculation has been rife the club could cash in on their talisman to offset the chances of losing him for free in 12 months’ time. The Metro note that Chelsea has been ‘targeting a move for Aubameyang in the January transfer window before changing their focus to Werner.’ The main drivers behind the club’s interest are revealed to have been Lampard and Cech, with the duo ‘pushing the club’s hierarchy to complete a deal.’ At the age of 30, Aubameyang was deemed unsuitable as a signing due to his lack of re-sale value, and the board instead wished to sign a younger striker like Werner, despite him not being ‘at the very top of Lampard’s shortlist.’ Meanwhile, Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has expressed why he believes Werner isn’t worthy of the hype that is currently surrounding him. “This is the reality – all those other clubs, Barcelona, Liverpool, Juventus, Real Madrid, Man City and United have looked at him and thought, in the current market, his release clause fee is too high. read also:Lampard reveals Drogba’s impact in Chelsea’s Champions League triumph “How do we know that? Because otherwise they would have activated it. “So you’re left with Chelsea, who through a unique set of circumstances have almost £60m to spend because of a deal from last summer in selling Alvaro Morata to Atletico Madrid that only kicks in this summer.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 last_img read more

first_img “He knows he has got a lot to add to his game but in that final third he can be unplayable at times and he caused West Brom all sorts of problems.” The victory also gave striker Peter Odemwingie success against his former club, who he left with some ill-feeling after his infamous drive to try to complete a move to QPR in January 2012. But the Nigeria international insisted he has nothing against Albion. “I understand their reactions still, I was one of their players,” he said. “But you can see I had no problems with the players. I miss them as people, they were part of my success. In the end it wasn’t possible for me to stay. I still had more good than bad, I just needed to change clubs and it doesn’t always happen in the nicest way.” Cardiff have given themselves some valuable breathing space to the bottom three, and Odemwingie believes it is vital they press on during the busy Christmas period. “It will be the most difficult time for every club. There are a lot of games, you get a few injuries and other people have to take over. “As a group we are very strong, and we just spoke that if we can be as happy with a performances as we are on this occasion and fight for every point. We have had performances against the big clubs and that can inspire us.” Marshall flung himself to his left to keep out a goalbound header from Shane Long with four minutes remaining at Cardiff City Stadium, earning himself further plaudits during what has been a very impressive start to life in the Barclays Premier League. The 28-year-old has been outstanding for the Bluebirds, and prior to the weekend’s action he had made the most top-flight saves of any keeper, with 11 of his 61 stops coming during an astonishing personal display in the 1-0 defeat to Tottenham in September. Cardiff boss Malky Mackay described goalkeeper David Marshall’s form as “immense” after the Scotland international produced another stunning save to preserve their 1-0 win over West Brom. Press Association And Mackay admitted the standard of Marshall’s displays meant he had not been too concerned when Long’s header made its way towards the Cardiff goal. “I didn’t fear the worst because I knew my keeper would save it,” said the Scot. “Shane Long is someone who has scored regularly and he got hold of it well. But David Marshall has been immsense for me, that was a top, top save. “He was the best goalkeeper in the Championship last year and had certain challenges last season in terms of his ability getting back in the Scotland squad and being the number one goalkeeper in the Championship. Now we are seeing he is a proven Premier League goalkeeper. “He has done a lot of work with our goalkeeping coach Jim Holman and we have a real belief in him and he brings a calmness to our back four which is noticed as well because the back four were tremendous again.” Mackay also had words of encouragement for winger Craig Noone, who produced a lively display against the Baggies and provided the cross for Peter Whittingham’s winner. Noone has had to wait for his chance to impress this season, but Mackay said: “He is someone I love having at the club, and he has a real love for football. “He has had to bide his time, he has got great potential to be a Premier League player. last_img read more

first_img France lock Pape faces a disciplinary hearing on Wednesday where he could be banned for the remainder of the tournament after kneeing Heaslip in the back during Ireland’s 18-11 victory in Dublin. The 34-year-old Les Bleus star will discover his fate at a disciplinary hearing in London on Wednesday, and put in an advance move to curry favour with the panel by apologising to Leinster’s Heaslip on social media. Press Association Jamie Heaslip has accepted Pascal Pape’s Twitter apology for the crude knee to the back that could end the Ireland number eight’s RBS 6 Nations campaign.center_img Heaslip suffered three fractured vertebrae in his back from the challenge that earned Pape a yellow card at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday. Pape tweeted: “Sincerely sorry to have injured @jamieheaslip in this action of the match, not at all my intention to do him any harm #objectivityforsome”, on Tuesday night, just hours before his disciplinary hearing. Irrespective of whether the Stade Francais second-row’s move was designed to edge the independent panel towards leniency in his hearing, Leinster’s loose forward Heaslip accepted the apology wholeheartedly. Heaslip replied by tweeting a message in France, which translates as: “@pascalpape thanks for your message. Rugby is a physical game and one accepts that can happen. I accept your apology completely”. Heaslip will be sidelined for the next month, already leaving him a doubt for Ireland’s final Six Nations clash, in Scotland on March 21. The influential 31-year-old will be a loss to Ireland’s bid to retain their title, especially in the pivotal England clash in Dublin on March 1. France boss Philippe Saint-Andre has already claimed Pape’s challenge was an accident. Referee Wayne Barnes ruled the contact deliberate, but only awarded a yellow card. The Six Nations’ independent citing team deemed Pape still has a case to answer though, and if found guilty he could miss the rest of the competition. last_img read more

first_imgLacey Kohl was the calming presence Stacy Kuwik needed.Kuwik was beginning to unravel in the fifth inning of the second game of a Syracuse-Rutgers doubleheader on Saturday. The junior hurler was losing her command and struggling to find the strike zone.That’s when Kohl stepped in and got her back on track.‘For (Kohl) to kind of be there for her and just kind of say ‘Hey, listen, fight through the rain, come on let’s go, do your thing,” SU head coach Leigh Ross said. ‘I think it’s easy for a pitcher to kind of lose it for a second, and for their catcher to bring her back out of it is good.’And that’s what Ross and the pitching staff has come to expect from Kohl, the Orange’s starting catcher. When a pitcher is in need, a reassuring Kohl is always there to lead her out of her troubles. She’s one of the most vocal players and a natural leader for a team which won 14 of its last 16 games.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU senior pitcher Jenna Caira, who threw a no-hitter this past weekend with Kohl as her catcher, said it’s important for at least one part of the battery to never panic.‘Just making sure if one thing doesn’t really go her way, she goes into the next play calm and she doesn’t freak out,’ Caira said, ‘because with the battery, if the pitcher and the catcher are both uneasy, then that’s going to portray to other parts of the field as well.’As a former infielder, Kohl understands that effect.She switched positions from infielder to catcher at the start of her sophomore year for a chance to play everyday. The move also gave her a broader perspective during each game and a new opportunity to be a leader.‘Being able to see the whole field, not from just one certain angle, I’m able to see everything as it happens and how it unfolds,’ Kohl said. ‘I really like that position back there. I have the voice for it. I’m loud.’As a senior, Kohl said she can relate to everyone on the team. She’s gone through the joy of a big win and the devastation of a crushing loss.Freshmen can look up to her, and other upperclassmen are easily able to relate to her. Over the past three years, Kohl has played in 154 of SU’s 167 games. And she’s started 142 of them.‘Lacey’s definitely a vocal leader, leader by example,’ Ross said. ‘She’s definitely a leader.’The way she handles a pitching staff has been almost seamless. Even from the stands, she can be heard screaming out to her pitcher that it’s just the two of them having a catch.Caira said Kohl does a good job of reading a pitcher. If she sees poor body language from Caira or sees pitches that aren’t as sharp, that’s an indication for Kohl to go out and talk with Caira about how to settle down.‘I think she does a good job of making sure everyone’s calm, and she understands what’s going on and reads everybody to make sure everyone is settled,’ Caira said, ‘that when pressure situations occur that everyone is calm and can handle what’s happening.’Ross said overall, Kohl does a great job of leading by example. The way she carries herself on the field motivates players on and off the diamond. In practice, Kohl always tries to be a player teammates can turn to.And while catching certainly forced her into becoming a leader for the Orange, it’s a characteristic Kohl has always had.‘Because I am always talking, I guess it’s one of those things where either you have it or you don’t,’ Kohl said. ‘You’re either talkative and motivate people or you don’t. Luckily, I guess I kind of have that.’dgproppe@syr.edu Published on April 23, 2012 at 12:00 pm Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 10, 2018 at 3:21 pm Contact Matt: mdliberm@syr.edu Austin Fusco stood at his own 40-yard line, dazed from the swarm of Johns Hopkins defenders that surrounded him like bees. Blue Jays defender Jack Rapine forced a turnover after Fusco scooped a ground ball for a faceoff win.As Fusco looked ahead, Joel Tinney threaded the Syracuse defense on a fastbreak, dodging anyone standing in his way. Within seconds he reached the front of the SU cage. To stop Tinney, the Orange’s Nick Mellen had to ditch his defensive assignment, Shack Stanwick.Tinney quickly found the senior all alone on the right side of the goal and Stanwick rifled a shot into the bottom left corner of the twine. Stanwick’s goal was just the second of a 5-0 run at the end of the third quarter that put Saturday’s contest away for good.“We talked all week about getting hands-on and getting confrontational,” JHU head coach Dave Pietramala said. “Being assertive and aggressive… We beat Princeton and all I hear is about how bad we are. It was important for us to come up here and play well against a quality opponent.”In a Carrier Dome matchup between the NCAA’s most accomplished teams, No. 17 Johns Hopkins (3-2, 0-0 Big Ten) used that aggression to stomp on Syracuse’s (3-2, 1-0 Atlantic Coast) dreams of a third-consecutive ranked win. The Blue Jays bullied the Orange in nearly every facet of the game en route to an 18 – 7 win. The Blue Jays outshot the Orange 46-25, won 64.2 percent of faceoffs, caused more than twice as many turnovers and scooped 16 more ground balls.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“They didn’t have a weakness,” Syracuse head coach John Desko said. “They played a really good game.”As everything seemed to go right for the Blue Jays during this contest, close to nothing did for the Orange. At the end of the first quarter, Brett Kennedy found himself at the tail end of a fastbreak, alone in front of JHU goalie Brock Turnbaugh. With one second left and no one in front of him, Kennedy tried to sneak a shot past Turnbaugh’s right side. The ball clanged off of the right post and rolled away, ending the quarter with SU down 3-1.The Orange would get within one goal just four minutes into the second quarter. And that would be its smallest deficit for the remainder of the game.“I think we just of lost our cool,” Desko said. “I didn’t think we shot well, especially early in the game (and) I think we were frustrated offensively.”One thing that SU has struggled with consistently this season is preventing big runs, and the Blue Jays took advantage, rattling off four goals in the final 2:16 of the second quarter.And that continued the following quarter when the Blue Jays scored five more goals in less than five minutes.“We talked at great length about just taking it in five-minute increments,” Peitramala said, “and out-working and out-hustling our opponent.”In three different quarters on Saturday, the Blue Jays capitalized on runs of at least three goals in less than six minutes – three goals in the first quarter, four goals in the second and five goals in the third.The Orange scored just two goals in a row once in the game. Nearly every time SU could find a goal, JHU scored two more.“Every time that we tried to stop a run, they answered right back,” SU attack Brendan Bomberry said. “(They) stopped any momentum we might have had.”At times on Saturday, JHU seemed unstoppable. With an 11-3 lead, Cole Williams raced behind the cage, guarded by SU short-stick midfielder Dami Oladunmoye. Williams raced around the left side of the goal, drawing Oladunmoye out. At the 20-yard line, Williams, who is 6’5”, turned over his right shoulder to face the goal and jumped to free his hands over the 5’10” Oladunmoye’s head. As the freshman shoved Williams’ side, Williams whipped a shot over Oladunmoye and past SU goalie Dom Madonna’s right ear, across the cage and into the back right corner for a goal.“When I get those matchups, I take it to the goal,” Williams said.Eight different players recorded a point on Saturday for Hopkins, and four of those eight scored at least three.But it wasn’t just the SU defense that struggled. It was everyone. While four different Blue Jays scored three points, only Jamie Trimboli matched that feat for the Orange as he finished with a hat-trick.Syracuse simply never had the ball. JHU won 18 of 28 faceoffs and caused 11 turnovers, one short of tying its single-game record. Ten different Blue Jays players caused a turnover. And when the Orange finally managed to get a shot off, Turnbaugh walled off the cage, finishing with 10 saves.“We’re definitely a work in progress,” Bomberry added. “I think we definitely took a step forward against Virginia and then we took a step back here.”When SU had the chance to make a statement with its third-straight ranked win, it failed in the same ways it did against Albany. The Blue Jays came in and flew away from the Orange. Commentslast_img read more
