first_imgJakarta Governor Anies Baswedan has decided to extend the period of large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) to the end of June as Indonesia’s capital city enters the transition phase with gradual easing plans in place for several sectors.He explained that the decision was taken after considering that most parts of the capital were generally now “green or yellow zones” for COVID-19 cases, although he admitted that some community units (RW) were still seeing a growing number of cases.“We and the COVID-19 task force have decided to extend the PSBB period in Jakarta and have determined that June will be the transition phase,” Anies said during a press conference that was livestreamed on the city administration’s YouTube channel on Thursday. During the transition period, Jakarta will allow houses of worship to resume activities but only at half capacity. The city administration will also allow mobility of public and private vehicles starting Friday.Other sectors allowed to open include offices, shops, restaurants, factories, retailers and city-owned small to medium businesses but only with half capacity in the second week of June, while non-food businesses in markets and shopping centers will be allowed to open in the third week.Recreational parks, zoos, sport facilities, museums, libraries, beaches and other public facilities will also be allowed to open gradually.Read also: COVID-19: Jakarta extends PSBB through RamadanAnies said that during the transition period, an ‘emergency brake policy’ would also be in place to stop the reopening of the various sectors if health protocols failed and cases surged.Since the first cases were detected in March, Jakarta has reported 7,690 COVID-19 cases, with 523 fatalities and 2,607 recoveries as of Thursday.The city administration began imposing the PSBB on April 10, closing schools and religious places, restricting people’s mobility and encouraging companies to apply a work-from-home policy, and has since extended the restrictions three times.Topics :last_img read more

first_imgChris and Lou Williams loved renovating their Ashgrove property so much, they’ve decided to do another. Photo: Annette DewFriends told 31-year-old Chris Williams and his wife, Lou, 30, they were crazy, but the couple have loved renovating.“Everyone hates it, and we didn’t,” Mr Williams said.“People usually shake their heads and say, ‘Why are you doing it to yourselves?’”The pair spent 15 months and about $1 million creating their future family home at 54 Moulton St, Ashgrove, before deciding it was too hard to stop at just one venture. The home is a comfortable mix of contemporary and colonial.“It was never on the cards during the process that we’d sell it, it was just at the end of it we said, ‘Well that was really fun, we kind of want to do it again!’”Because they intended to settle in the house, Mr Williams said they didn’t skimp on the work which resulted in a stunning five-bedroom, three-bathroom design masterpiece.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home1 hour agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor1 hour ago The outdoor entertaining space is inviting … and very hip.When asked about their favourite spaces, Chris said they love the central living areas, but have different spots for downtime.“My place is the media room downstairs where I can relax, have a beer and watch sport while Lou’s space is upstairs. She got a bedroom that she’s set up as a sewing room so she’s particularly drawn to that room.” No expense was spared in creating a beautiful family home.A look through the home reveals a tip of the hat to the original cottage, combined with contemporary finishes such as polished concrete, architectural timber walls and ceilings, a dark-and-light colour palette, video security system and ducted airconditioning. There’s high-end architectural features throughout.Mr Williams said, however, the greatest thing about the home was its livability.“It just flows,” he said.The renovation is sure to be a hit with viewers too when it appears on the new lifestyle show, “Ready, Set, Reno” on September 10, on 9 Life.54 Moulton St, Ashgrove, will be auctioned today at noon by Josh Brown of Ray White New Farm.Follow Kieran Clair on Twitter at @kieranclair or Facebook on Kieran Clair — journolast_img read more

first_imgTo recall, a portion of WVMC’s medical/surgical ward went on a one-day lockdown on July 10 after a 13-year-old boy patient tested positive for COVID-19. “Nakahatag sang letter si Dr. Nicolo nga kon puede [ang mga patients] dira lang anay sa mga district hospitals. Kon indi gid masarangan kag kinahanglan gid nga i-refer sa Western, may makeshift tent sa sagwa nga maka-accommodate,” said Abello. Meanwhile, Dr. Joseph Dean Nicolo, chief of WVMC, issued an advisory to the Provincial Health Office and district hospitals in Iloilo province and other parts of Region 6 to suspend the issuance of referrals. Of the three infected personnel, one was a nurse assigned in a non-COVID emergency room, one was a radiologist and another was an institutional worker, according to Dr. Stephanie Abello, chief pathologist of the WVMC sub-national laboratory where the region’s COVID-19 tests are conducted. “Once ma-decontaminate ang mga areas, mabalik man               ila operation,” Abello added. She said makeshift tents were installed outside the WVMC to assure patients of continued medical care. Four areas of the hospital were immediately locked down on Wednesday to stop the virus from spreading. “Sa subong gina-trace kon diin gid ang source. Puede nga community acquired or sa patient,” Abello furthered. Also, more than a week ago, a portion of the hospital’s orthopedic ward was locked down after a 72-year-old male patient from Igbaras, Iloilo was found infected with COVID-19.center_img Over 51 contacts of the three WVMC personnel have so far been traced and specimens were collected from them for analysis. Abello said they temporarily sealed off the St. Anthony ward, St. Augustine ward, portions of the non-COVID emergency room and radiology department to allow decontamination and restrict movement while contract tracing is ongoing. She disclosed that the hospital has yet to determine the source of infection of the three cases.

(April 2) – Cody Gearhart squeezed by race-long leader Beau Davis on the 17th circuit to capture his first local Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified victory since June of 2013, on opening night at Dodge City Raceway Park.“That really was a tale of two races,” Gearhart said in victory lane after the 20-lapper.  “I was getting passed at one point, then things all worked out.”Gearhart spent the early portion of the race chasing Davis, who gunned into the lead from the front row outside.Gearhart briefly fell back a spot when William Nusser battled by to claim second at the midway point. Nusser looped it the next time around in turn four, collecting fourth-runner Cole Traugott in the process.Back up to second, Gearhart kept the pressure on Davis and capitalized when the leader bobbled in turns thee and four on the 16th lap. With the bobble, Gearhart was able to pull alongside and then motored ahead through turns one and two.Gearhart took the checkered flag ahead of Nick Link, who edged Davis at the line for runner-up honors. Ryan Heger and 13th-starter Brendon Gemmill rounded out the top five.Dakota Sproul took IMCA SportMod honors in the closing stages, Tyler Tipton topped the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and Iowan Shannon Anderson bested the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks.last_img read more

first_imgThe Trojans men’s basketball team (9-10, 1-6 Pac-12) lost its fourth straight game with a 59-55 loss to the Oregon State Beavers (14-5, 5-2), who won their third game in a row.USC was led by redshirt sophomore guard Katin Reinhardt with 17 points, including 4-7 from three, while sophomore forward Nikola Jovanovic added 13 points and 6 boards. Freshman point guard Jordan McLaughlin had a    game-high seven assists but only shot 2-11 from the field for 9 points. McLaughlin has lost his stroke as of late, as he only shot 4-15 in the Trojans’ loss to Oregon.With his Hall of Fame dad in attendance, OSU guard Gary Payton II had a game-high 21 points and 10 rebounds, his sixth double-double of the season. Forward Jarmal Reid added 14 points off the bench, the same amount scored by the entire bench of the Trojans. The surprising Beavers are now 12-0 at home.“If you ask me what the difference in the game was, our guards have got to step up and make some shots,” said USC head coach Andy EnfieldThe Beavers pulled away in the first half with an 11-2 run led by Reid. It looked as if the Beavers were going to roll to a comfortable win, but the Trojans fought back with a 9-0 run of their own to cut the first half deficit to two. The first half was a back-and-forth affair that included seven lead changes and one tie in the first eight minutes of the game.Oregon State then went on to take an early 8-point lead in the second half, thanks to three consecutive shots from distance from forward Olaf Schaftenaar, but the Trojans stormed back with an 11-0 run, capped by a three from Reinhardt, to take a 3-point lead before Oregon State came charging back and took the lead for good after a layup by Reid with 10:02 remaining.USC had a chance to tie the game with a three late in the game, but sophomore guard Julian Jacobs turned the ball over with nine seconds left and Payton clinched the game with a free throw that sent USC home having lost both games in Oregon.USC was not dominated in any aspect of the game but Oregon State did just enough to hold off the Trojans.The Trojans continued to shoot poorly from the field, only making 34 percent of their baskets. They are currently tied for last in the Pac-12 in field goal percentage, averaging 41.9 percent from the field. And while not the sole reason for the defeat, the Trojans did commit 10 turnovers, something that plagued this young team early in the season.Despite the poor performance by the Trojan bench, redshirt sophomore forward Darion Clark continued to be productive with 8 points and 8 rebounds to lead the second unit.The freshmen for USC struggled again against the Beavers. Guard Elijah Stewart only scored 2 points, that came on a breakaway dunk and forward Malik Martin was held scoreless in his limited playing time.Martin only played three minutes and was replaced in the starting lineup by guard Malik Marquetti, who was also held without a point in the contest.“They played really hard, they played excellent defense,” Enfield told the Los Angeles Times. “Unfortunately, we came out on the short end of the stick.”The Trojans return home on Thursday to face the Colorado Buffaloes (10-9, 3-4) as they look to improve their conference record to close out the month. Colorado is led by guard Askia Booker, as they are dealing with injuries to their two big-time scorers, forwards Josh Scott and Xavier Johnson.The Buffaloes are coming off a win over Washington State as they head to Los Angeles to play USC and UCLA. Colorado is winless on the road thus far this season and USC is 6-4 at home.last_img read more

first_imgJim Boeheim went on the Atlantic Coast Conference coaches teleconference on Monday afternoon and spoke about a number of topics, including Syracuse’s (13-8, 3-5 ACC) upcoming matchup with Notre Dame (14-5, 5-2) on Thursday at 7 p.m. and his team’s ability to limit fast-break scoring.Here’s a recap of what he talked about.Scouting Notre DameNotre Dame has the top adjusted offensive efficiency in the country, per Kenpom.com. And though Boeheim didn’t reference the advanced metrics, he knows what the Fighting Irish is capable of.“Well I think they’re a very good offense team, I think they can score,” Boeheim said. “They score against anybody, they put points up, they can shoot it, they can score inside. I think they’re a really well-balanced team and I think that’s pretty much what people thought coming into the year. They’ve got the inside and outside attack and it’s very consistent and they’ve played very well in the league.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textUND shoots 38.7 percent from 3 and 55.8 percent from inside the arc, which ranks 11th in the nation, per Kenpom. The Fighting Irish put up 95 points in a road win at Duke, and scored at least 75 points in seven of its last nine games.Boeheim also said the Orange is preparing as if UND starting point guard Demetrius Jackson is playing.Preventing scoring on the fast breakThe Orange has not allowed a single fast-break point in the past four games, and it’s coincided with some of SU’s best defensive performances on the year.Syracuse has averaged just 11.3 turnovers in the last four games, which is below the season average. This ball protection has kept SU opponents from scoring out in transition.“We always want to get back,” Boeheim said. “I think one of the things about fast break is that bad turnovers lead to fast breaks, and we haven’t done that. Our turnovers have not been turnovers that can get people out on the break. I think that’s one thing.“Our guards, our perimeter people do get back … Tyler Roberson is a really good offensive rebounder, our other perimeter guys get back well. We need to get back and get our defense set, that’s important and we’ve done a good job of that. That’s very important.”Upcoming scheduleSyracuse will play its next four games at home after playing five of the first eight conference games away from the Carrier Dome. Boeheim said it’s hard to create a schedule that makes everyone happy, and that teams will go through stretches of playing many games in a short span, and others will have a slew of off days.Consecutive home games against Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech and Florida State provide the Orange with a chance to get back in the ACC race.“Well there’s no question about it,” Boeheim said. “We knew it would be a tough start to the conference season with the schedule the way it was, and the teams that are there. They’re all really good teams, I thought that this next stretch of games would obviously be crucial and I think whatever our record was, this stretch of game it was always going to be crucial.” Comments Published on January 25, 2016 at 1:12 pm Contact Sam: sblum@syr.edu | @SamBlum3 Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Related Stories Syracuse teases comeback but ultimately falls short in 73-65 loss at No. 13 VirginiaWhat we learned from Syracuse basketball’s loss at No. 13 Virginia3 things Jim Boeheim said after Syracuse’s loss to No. 13 VirginiaFast reaction: 3 takeaways from Syracuse’s 73-65 loss to VirginiaSyracuse community reacts to loss against No. 13 Virginialast_img read more
