Dybala, an infected not so strange

first_img10 It may seem strange that the footballer is taking so long to recover. However, Giovanni Di Perri, head of Infectious Diseases at Amedeo di Savoia hospital in Turin, explains that it is totally normal that its total recovery takes so long, as stated Tuttosport. A series* Data updated as of April 30, 2020 “It is normal. The time range for healing varies from 8 to 37 days, with an average of 20. But there are also patients who have waited two months to test negative. Dybala, therefore, is not a strange phenomenon, it occurs more than you think. About 20% of those infected, who are fine but still positive, and sometimes we cannot discharge them from the hospital because they don’t have the conditions at home to be quarantined. “When he contracted the disease, the Argentine came to suffer respiratory difficulties, but today he has no symptoms and he trains at home normally, since his virological load seems to be very low.

Self-proclaimed ‘icon’ Adam Rippon takes final Olympic skate

first_imgAdam Rippon of the United States reacts following his performance in the men’s free figure skating final in the Gangneung Ice Arena at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Gangneung, South Korea, Saturday, Feb. 17, 2018. (AP Photo/David J. Phillip)GANGNEUNG, South Korea — Adam Rippon put his hands over his face and let the cheers wash over. He waved and smiled, and when the crowd kept clapping, he jumped where he stood and swung his arms to egg them on.Ever the showman, and with his trademark grace and flair, Rippon took his final skate of the Pyeongchang Olympics on Saturday. He finished 10th, a fine result for a 28-year-old who was never expected to medal against a field populated by younger, higher-flying competition.ADVERTISEMENT How does he feel about that?“Well, you know, on the spectrum from Reese Witherspoon to Elmo, I’m like excited at about, like, a Meryl Streep,” he told NBC this week. “Does that make sense?”Those around him say the buzzy one-liners aren’t an act. Fellow American skater Ashley Wagner said this week that “he’s like this 24/7. It’s exhausting.”A taste of Rippon’s best work just from Saturday:—On his plans for the rest of the Olympics: “I’m probably going to have like a stiff drink later.”—On the Olympic spotlight: “Sometimes I just get attention, and I really don’t know how it happens.”—On his legacy: “You know, I’m not like a gay icon, or America’s gay sweetheart. I’m just America’s sweetheart and I’m just an icon.”Certainly, this month has opened doors for Rippon. He wouldn’t say for sure Saturday that he’s ready to retire from competition, but at 28, he seems unlikely to keep going much longer.He’d be a hit on television — perhaps following in the footsteps of fellow American skating star Johnny Weir, now a personality on NBC who helps host figure skating and Kentucky Derby coverage. There’s no doubt that if Rippon wants, he can parlay his celebrity into some sort of public post-skating career.With what he showed in South Korea, it’d be surprising if he doesn’t want that. View comments He’s given the world a taste of himself, and even after he’s done skating, it’s going to want more.“I think I’ve shown the world that I’m a fierce competitor,” he said. “But I think I’ve shown them that I’m also a fierce human being.” Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Kenworthy and his boyfriend were in the stands to watch Rippon on Saturday, waving an American flag with rainbow patterning in place of red and white stripes. Rippon said he plans to watch Kenworthy compete, too.Rippon’s path to Pyeongchang included a public spat with Vice President Mike Pence, whom the LGBT community considers an opponent for signing the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in March 2015 as Indiana’s governor. Critics said the legislation encouraged discrimination against gay people. An amendment with protections for the LGBT community was passed a week later.Rippon criticized the White House in January for choosing Pence to lead its official delegation for the opening ceremony. When a USA Today report said Pence was hoping to sit down with Rippon, the figure skater said he had no interest in meeting with Pence until at least after the games.The “brouhaha” — Rippon’s word — mostly dissipated as he made his Olympic debut. He helped the Americans win a bronze medal in the team event, then put on a pair of clean skates in the individual competition.All the while, he charmed away during interviews with his striking ease and wit. His personality — he proudly told The Associated Press in November he’s “a little trashy, but really fun” — cemented his Olympic stardom, catching attention from stars including Reese Witherspoon and Elmo.ADVERTISEMENT Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano UK plans Brexit celebrations but warns businesses may suffer It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Black athletes in 1980s, 90s not outspoken, but not silentlast_img read more

Weren’t charges against Singh, Brassington also meant to embarrass, humiliate?

first_imgDear Editor,I was utterly flabbergasted when I read that the Finance Minister is now suing Member of Parliament Juan Edghill, claiming damages in the sum of two hundred million dollars ($200,000,000) for “Malicious Prosecution of the Offence of Misconduct in Public Office” and other damages.Jordan, in his application to the court, stated that private criminal charges filed by the Opposition Parliamentarian were intended to “embarrass, humiliate, and cause him to suffer public odium and contempt”. If that is the case, then we can also argue, and reasonably conclude, that the charges against Dr Ashni Singh and Mr Brassington are also meant to “embarrass, humiliate, and cause them to suffer public odium and contempt”.This must be so concluded, since the sale of the land and properties were duly authorised by Cabinet in the same manner in which Jordan claimed that the payment of $906 million to Homestretch Development Incorporated was approved by the National Assembly.Similarly, “no reasonable person can conclude, or even draw an inference,” that Dr Singh and Mr Brassington are guilty of the offence of ‘misconduct in public office’. Mr Jordan should, however, know that it is for the courts to conclude on guilt.But while the DPP has allowed the justice system to act — albeit unjustly so — in the case of the former, the DPP has failed to administer the same quota of justice in Jordan’s case, citing that complaints should have been made to the Police. However, political dictates will never allow such an occurrence!It is clear that the PNC influence in our judicial system is getting stronger!Having said that, I wish to inform Mr Jordan that he holds a public office and he should expect that he would be subjected to vigorous public scrutiny at all times. In this case, Mr Edghill, as a Member of Parliament, has the right to demand that transactions which are questionable are brought to the public domain.In the case of the D’Urban Park Project, there is a complete lack of data on how the monies were spent, and records are not available. On May 22nd this year, it was reported that the Office of the Auditor General was probing deeper into the project, and that “several questions still linger”, even though some records were submitted by the Ministry of Public Infrastructure (MoPI).Moreover, there was no budgetary allocation made in either the 2015 or 2016 Budgets; and despite complaints by the Opposition to the Public Procurement Commission, nothing was done. The Minister of Public Infrastructure was simply instructed by the President to take over the project.So let the ‘reasonable man’ decide whether or not the private criminal charges brought by Mr Edghill were justified or not. The public needed answers, and Mr Edghill attempted to provide those answers by using the only recourse he has — our legal system! Will our legal system now fail him?It is a shame that this Coalition Government, instead of providing answers to corruption charges, would seek to clamp down, stifle and kill those voices which agonisingly cry against the myriad corrupt practices being perpetrated against this nation in just three years! This is no surprise, since the PNC colour flies above Guyana!Your sincerely,Haseef YusufRDC Councillor,Region Sixlast_img read more

KwaZulu-Natal mulls automotive supplier park

first_img6 February 2014 The KwaZulu-Natal provincial government is considering establishing an automotive supplier park to boost the auto manufacturing sector in the province, Premier Senzo Mchunu said on Monday. Speaking at Toyota South Africa’s Prospecton plant in Durban, at a ceremony marking the start of full production of the new-generation Toyota Corolla, Mchunu said the government was looking in the vicinity of the proposed dug-out port, on the site of the old Durban International Airport, for a possible venue for the supplier park. “In 2012 the provincial government started negotiations with Toyota management in Japan, and we asked them to help us convince automobile suppliers to consider setting up their plants in this proposed park,” Mchunu said. “There are also opportunities for automotive leather upholstery manufacturers to be located in the park and to supply automotive suppliers and manufacturers across the country and the international market.” Mchunu commended Toyota for its contribution to job creation and skills development in the country, and said the provincial government was committed to working with the company to strengthen the automobile industry. “Toyota has been producing vehicles here in Durban since 1962. Records show that in 2013 alone Toyota built more than 156 000 vehicles, of which 80 000 units were exported to Europe and African countries.” Toyota’s Durban plant boasts an annual production capacity of more than 220 000 units, while the company supports more than 8 000 jobs in Durban and Johannesburg. “Importantly, the government appreciates investments by Toyota towards skills development,” Mchunu said. “Thousands of employees who will be working in this production line have benefited from Toyota’s skills development programme.” Toyota’s production of the new-generation Corolla follows a R1-billion investment made by the company in its Prospecton plant. In a statement issued on Monday, Toyota South Africa CEO Johan van Zyl said the R1-billion investment was the second to be announced in the current phase of a capital expansion programme that started with a R363-million new parts distribution centre in Gauteng province in 2012. This followed a R8-billion investment programme that was completed in 2008 and that saw Toyota’s local production capacity increase to 220 000 units. In December, the company celebrated the production of its 1-millionth South African produced Corolla. SAinfo reporter and KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Governmentlast_img read more

Crop progress continues to lag behind

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest More precipitation than usual fell across the entire State last week and again hampered planting progress, according to Cheryl Turner, State Statistician, USDA NASS, Ohio FieldThere were 2.1 days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending June 2. Temperatures were warmer than normal for the State but rain kept operators out of fields. Corn and soybean planting progress was slowed by wet soils again last week. Wheat and oats headed progress both lagged behind their 5-year averages. Hay and pastures were in good condition but forages could not be cut in many fields due to wet soils. Operators lucky enough to have dry fields were applying manure and spraying when possible.    Nationally as of June 2, 67% of the corn was planted in the top 18 production states compared to the five-year average of 96%. Soybeans were 39% planted in the U.S. compared to the average of 79%.Read the full report here.last_img read more
