Trinidad Government Closes Primary Schools, but Insists No “Raging” COVID-19 in…

first_imgRowley again urged political parties into the last weekend of the campaign to ensure that their supporters are fully on board with the various measures to curb the spread of the virus, adding “put health protocols first. Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley at news conference (CMC Photo)“We took firm decisions using the science and the data and we continue so to do. And of course if there comes a point where we believe that the risk requires a certain response…then at that point we will make the decisions as we made in the beginning. “There is no raging virus,” Rowley told reporters, noting that the emphasis now was on the management of the risks involved in the spread of the virus. Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley, speaking at a news conference here, said that following discussions with the health sector experts, it was agreed to shut down the primary schools from Thursday, after some pupils had been in contact with positive cases resulting in the closure of at least nine schools contacting tracing and cleaning. PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – The Trinidad and Tobago government Wednesday announced the closure of primary schools but insisted that the country was not facing an outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) even as it prepared for a general election on August 10. He said while he understood the position of the teachers, unilateral positions by unions representing workers, some of whom are on the frontline, would defeat the national policy in dealing with the efforts to prevent the spread of the disease. “The decision that I have taken is that we will discontinue at this stage from tomorrow those children will not go back out to have classes at school and we expect they will do at home what they were doing before….for the exams on August 20 because we will remain committed to having the exams.” “There are to be no gatherings to celebrate,” he said,, pleading “ do not congregate, election victory or not, do not congregate”. Rowley said he was “disappointed’ in the earlier statement by the Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers Association (TTUTA) calling on all teachers to stay away from classes until school reopens in September. “In Trinidad and Tobago we have a structure and that is working well for us. While you would have heard the Minister of Health saying a couple of days ago there is no raging virus in Trinidad and Tobago. The virus is not raging out of control. We are able to identify and pick up, we know that the virus is in the population as it rears it head we are able to treat with it and so far the majority of the cases and the numbers…are people where we have found the contacts”. The SEA is a government exam sat by children aged 11 to 12 as part of the admissions process for all public secondary schools. The SEA was introduced in 2001, to replace the older Common Entrance exam. The Ministry of Health Wednesday reported that three new cases had been reported over the past 24 hours bringing the total to 197. There have been eight deaths, since the first case was reported in March. “Basically what we are required to do after the first reaction is to live with the virus. Some people are living with it in an uncontrolled way. There are countries with far more resources that we have, who are not even attempting to do contact tracing….because the numbers are too large to attempt contact tracing….” CMC “So life wise we stay home, we stay away….and we brought our SEA children out to prepare themselves for an exam that is important with respect to the movement of our children,” Rowley said, adding that based on the data “we took the decision that we would not continue with that experiment of bringing those SEA students out. “When we say we are all in this together we mean everybody and any decision made is made for everybody and it is not helpful if persons in leadership positions believe that they are not going to accept what the country is doing because they are prepared to protect themselves better than anybody else, especially at the personal level where we are not seeing that commitment by some people were it is required as the protocol to deal with the virus”. He said the virus is likely to be around for a long time “until a vaccine is found to vaccinate the lage population of the world. “But now we are not there. But, there some things we have been doing which have increased the risks which are not comfortable with,” he said, noting “we had our children home for a number of weeks, away from school, away from mixing with the national population… “We understand the difficulty in getting children to stand within the protocol at the school environment especially small children, but we also had the requirement as we said this is about life and livelihood and we could add to that educational progression.last_img read more

Kuznetsov Leads the Caps to a 4-1 Win Over Carolina

first_imgIt was Evgeny Kuznetsov Bobblehead night at Capital One Arena and real life Kuzy took over a key game against the Carolina Hurricanes to lead his club to a huge victory over a very good Canes squad, 4-1. Braden Holtby was strong in net once again, stopping 26 of 27 shots, and Alex Ovechkin had the game winning tally early in the third period with a bomb to notch his 49th goal of the season.This night, however, was all about the guy Don Cherry called “A Jerk” on Hockey Night in Canada last week because the crazy suit man doesn’t like Europeans or anyone else that draws attention to himself. Cherry is basically the pot calling the kettle black and Kuzy taunted the HNIC host with three fantastic assists. The first one was an absolute gem to give Washington a 1st period lead, a perfect backhand feed threaded through two Canes and the slot to T.J. Oshie waiting just off of the far post. The Osh Babe promptly put the biscuit in the basket for his 23rd goal of the season.Washington would carry the play in the middle frame, and Ovi nearly had number 49 after a great dish from Top Line Tom Wilson on a two on one, but Petr Mrazek made a superb read and sliding save on the Gr8’s rocket. The Caps then took a delayed penalty and instead of working immediately to touch the puck up, they changed personnel. That move would prove costly as Carolina added the extra attacker and scored on a Dougie Hamilton shot from the blue line. Holtby didn’t save it because it nicked Oshie on the way to the cage.That set the stage for a 20 minute battle to see who would come out on top and it was the Capitals who would seize the lead at 4:31 of the third period. Kuznetsov made a strong play in his own zone and then in the neutral zone he fed Willy up the right wing boards. As #43 entered the offensive zone Ovechkin moved to the center of the ice above the circles and that’s when Wilson fed Ovi with a pass that he blasted by Mrazek.John “Norris” Carlson then notched his 13th goal of the season with just under nine minutes left to give the Caps a stranglehold on this affair. On the cycle in the offensive zone, Kuznetsov made a smart pass on the right wing boards back to Dmitry Orlov in the middle of the ice just inside the blue line. With Carly heading to the net as Kuzy was going back to the point to cover him, Dima fed #74 for a fairly easy wide open net deflection past Mrazek, who had lost his stick during the sequence.The Caps closed this one out when Ovechkin made a strong play on the defensive zone right wing boards to get the puck out of the Caps end and to Nicklas Backstrom in the neutral zone. Backy skated to the red line and quickly turned his head backwards like he was looking to dish to Ovi for #50. That sly move allowed him to then slide the disc through three Canes and into the empty cage to send the DC faithful home happy.This was an intense affair with the Caps really playing well the last 50 minutes. Carolina came out strong, but the Capitals really didn’t let Cap Killer Sebastian Aho get loose to beat them. On the evening the all star had only two shots on goal and was -1. Washington played quality defense all up and down the lineup. I thought this was one of Brooks Orpik’s best games of the season as he logged 17:54, had five hits, four blocked shots, and was +1.In fact, the entire defense performed well and the minutes were fairly balanced. Carlson led the team with had 21:48, Orlov logged 20:55, Niskanen was at 20:43, Jensen played 19:44, and Djoos had 15:25 of ice time. Since the Capitals were never shorthanded and they only had two power plays, that allowed the coaches to keep the ice time well distributed.This critical victory had a playoff like feel to it with the tight checking and lack of special teams’ opportunities. Zebras Garrett Rank and Kevin Pollock pretty much let the players decide the outcome, so kudos to them for not getting whistle happy.Washington is now 45-24-8 (98 points) and with the Islanders losing to Columbus on Tuesday night, the Caps lead over both the Isles and Penguins is three points with five games remaining. The Capitals will next play three straight games on the road; Carolina on Thursday, Tampa on Saturday, and then Florida on Monday. If they pick up four points, then they can close the division out with wins at home next week against Montreal and the Islanders, regardless of what Pittsburgh does in its last five games, four of which are at home.The Canes, who have been labeled a “Bunch of Jerks” by Cherry, are really good at home and we know Saturday’s game against the Bolts will be a war, so getting four points out of six on this trip won’t be easy. It’s important for Washington to take it one game at a time and keep improving their play. On Tuesday night they stuck to their system and didn’t become unstructured. Carolina will try to force the Caps into a free flowing game in an attempt to create odd man rush opportunities in Raleigh on Thursday. Washington must stay out of the box and back check effectively. It’s also critical to not turn pucks over at the offensive zone blue line.The Caps did all of those things well on Tuesday and they received a stellar performance from Kuznetsov. When Kuzy decides he’s going to play, he is as good as anyone in the NHL and the Caps are extremely hard to defeat. He is Washington’s “Jerk” and a big reason why this team won the Stanley Cup last year. They’ll need #92 firing on all cylinders again this spring if they want to repeat.But first things first, there are still five games to go and Coach Todd Reirden needs everyone pulling on the rope for this team to be successful. The win saved a Caps home stand that started 0-1-1, but ended 2-1-1.Most importantly, the team performed better and better as it progressed. They need to iterate on that and finish strong.Notes: Shots on goal were even at 28. Ovi led all players with five…Ovechkin and Orlov were both +3…Carlson hit the 400 point mark in this affair and continues to justify anyone who lists him 1st in the Norris Trophy balloting this season…the Capitals lost the face off battle, 35-26, but Nic Dowd was 7-2…Wilson had an assist and was +2 in 18:41 of ice time. He also had four hits…Jordan Staal was the best Cane. He was +1 and 15-7 on draws in 17:48 of ice time…On Monday, Coach Reirden announced that injured defensemen Michal Kempny will be out indefinitely. Number 6 is on crutches and there is no timetable for his return. Cedric Paquette of Tampa and Bad Zebras are to blame for his injury…the Caps toured the White House on Monday afternoon and received a hero’s welcome from President Donald Trump, who said that last year all his staff could talk about was the Capitals playoff run. Number 45 also stated he is a big hockey and Caps fan and his daughter, Ivanka, is friends with the Gr8. It was a splendid ceremony in the Oval Office and Ovechkin, Carlson, and Kuznetsov were all individually praised by the Prez, who was very gracious to Capitals owner Ted Leonsis, his son, Zach, and the entire organization that were present. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman was on hand, as well, and received kudos on his work from President Trump. Before Tuesday’s game, Wilson said that the visit was a motivator for the Capitals and their play against the Canes backed that up.last_img read more

Kingston dreaming of a return to the Black Stars

first_imgGhana midfielder Laryea Kingston has spoken of his dream to return to the Black Stars team after seventeen months out.Laryea Kingston was dropped by former coach Rajevac Milovan ahead of the South Africa, 2010 FIFA World Cup, a move that is reported to have prompted an angry reaction from the player which almost resulted in a brawl.Laryea Kingston signed for Israeli football big spenders Hapoel Bee’r Sheva in June 2011 to play in the top flight league.He has already made right appearances in total for the club, and two in the league already.The 30-year-old who is on a brief holiday in Ghana following the international break has told JOY Sports he has a future with the Black Stars team.“I am fit and playing my best football now after signing for Bee’r Sheva and I have been dreaming of a recall into the team by the new Coach (Goran Stevanovic)”. “The memories of missing two world cups (2006 and 2010) when I was at my peak worries me and I hope to have an opportunity to correct this with my newly found form,” he said.The former Great Olympics and Hearts of Oak midfielder in the Ghana premier league believes he has discovered his best form following his return to Israel and is eager to impress when he is handed a recall into the Black Stars.“I see the game differently now, I am more matured and at age 30, even though it is not easy for an African player to land a deal in Europe, I have been signed by this important club because of my good form and I will show that when I come back into the Black Stars team”.Laryea Kingston is due to return to Israel at the end of the week to resume training with Hapoel Bee’r Sheva which has won one match and drawn the other in their opening two games of the season.last_img read more

Utah Jazz notebook: Gregg Popovich learned film habits from Jerry Sloan

first_imgI don’t study much, I learned that from Jerry Sloan. – San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg PopovichSAN ANTONIO — When asked Tuesday if he’s seen improvement from Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said he didn’t know because he doesn’t watch much film, something he learned from former Jazz coach Jerry Sloan.“I don’t study much, I learned that from Jerry Sloan,” he said. “I asked him one time, ‘How much film do you watch?’ and he said, ‘None.’ I said ‘What do you mean?’ and he said, ‘That’s what my assistants do.’ I took that philosophy from that day on. You’re much better worrying about what you do (than the opponent).”Later, when asked if he’d read a certain article about a basketball player, Popovich replied, “You think I read much of that stuff? I read nothing about sports — it’s boring.”JAZZ NOTES: The Jazz returned home after the game and will play Dallas Wednesday night at Vivint Arena. The 0-3 Mavericks were one of seven winless teams going into Tuesday night games. … The Jazz and Spurs will meet again Friday night in Salt Lake. … George Hill, who played three years for the Spurs at the start of his NBA career, got a loud ovation from the crowd when he was introduced as a Utah starter. Also, ex-Spur Boris Diaw got a big cheer when he was shown on the big screen, wearing a natty red suit (Diaw sat out game because of leg contusion) … The Jazz will celebrate Veterans Day on and off the court through the NBA’s “Hoops for Troops” Week. On Thursday, the Jazz will host a “Commitment to Service” project and on Friday, the team will host “Military Appreciation Night” during the Jazz-Spurs game at Vivint Arena.last_img read more

GOP Senate to move forward on ‘Obamacare’ repeal

first_imgWASHINGTON | The Republican-led Senate is poised to take a step forward on dismantling President Barack Obama’s health care law despite anxiety among some GOP senators that they still haven’t come up with an alternative.A procedural budget vote slated for late Wednesday or early Thursday would put the process in motion, triggering committee action to write repeal legislation that could come to a vote next month. A full replacement would follow sometime after that, presuming Republicans can come up with one.“We must act quickly to bring relief to the American people,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.President-elect Donald Trump said Wednesday that repealing and replacing the law should happen “essentially simultaneously,” even in the same day, week or hour. That will be almost impossible to achieve due to complex Senate rules, united Democratic opposition and substantive policy disagreements among Republicans.The 2010 law extended health insurance to some 20 million Americans, prevented insurers from denying coverage for pre-existing conditions and steered millions of dollars to states for the Medicaid health program for the poor.The Senate procedural vote will set up special budget rules that will allow the repeal vote to take place with a simple majority in the 100-member Senate, instead of the 60 votes required to move most legislation.That means Republicans, who control 52 seats, can push through repeal legislation without Democratic cooperation. They’re also discussing whether there are some elements of a replacement bill that could get through at the same time with a simple majority. But for most elements of a new health care law, Republicans are likely to need 60 votes and Democratic support, and at this point the two parties aren’t even talking.Increasing numbers of Republicans have expressed anxiety over obliterating the law without a replacement to show voters.“We should start immediately to repeal, reform and replace Obamacare, and it shouldn’t be finally repealed until we have a replacement ready,” Senate Health Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., whose panel will be at the center of this year’s battle, said in a brief interview.Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who wants repeal and replace together, said the president-elect telephoned him Friday to voice support for that timing.“He’s aware of my arguments for doing replacement at the same time, and he agreed,” Paul said.last_img read more
