Their test results were negative. Doctors, however, have prohibited them from traveling for the time being. “None of the cases have been confirmed positive as of today,” said Yusri, a health agency official.Separately, two Japanese nationals were isolated in Haulussy Regional General Hospital in Ambon, Maluku.

Loading… As Burnley voiced fears that the coronavirus pandemic pay cost them £50m in lost revenues this season, Sportsmail can reveal the hugely different financial hits being faced by Premier League clubs. Burnley say they will lose around £5m from their four remaining home games, even if they are played, plus ‘up to £45m in broadcasting revenue and other items if the season is not finished.’ Liverpool could face huge losses of £55million if the Premier League season is voided If this season were progressing normally, Burnley, currently 10th, would be on course to earn around £129m from Premier League central funds in 2019-20. If no further play is possible, then broadcasters at home and abroad will want refunding a large proportion of the £762m paid for rights for games yet to be shown. By modelling how this would impact individual clubs, the MoS estimates Burnley would receive only around £96m instead of £129m, taking a hit of more than £33m from this source alone. It is believed other lost revenues would be from commercial partners, sponsors, merchandising and retail. Sean Dyche’s Burnley may lose £50million in revenue should Premier League be cancelledAdvertisement In the event the season is annulled, Liverpool would see a drop in TV income from the Premier League of around £55m from about £178m as things stand to around £123m. At the other end of the table, Norwich’s current forecast of TV income would drop from around £94m to around £79.5m. The Premier League payments are calculated using fixed shares of domestic and foreign TV money, varying amounts of domestic and overseas ‘merit’ money for finishing position, and ‘facility fees’ for the number of times a club is shown on live TV in the UK. A new method of allocating overseas TV money will bring significant new sums to the highest placed clubs this season, if concluded. But if annulled they won’t get this money, hence the disproportionate ‘hits’ the higher-up clubs will take. There is a huge variance in the financial clubs are likely to suffer if the season is cancelled Read Also: Lionel Messi is above Ronaldo, CR7, Ronaldinho – Xavi It was announced on Friday evening that the Premier League’s 20 clubs are consulting their players about potential maximum 30 per cent wage reductions this season. As our Q&A below explores, it seems this figure, in the event of the season being annulled, would largely mitigate lost revenue from unplayed home games and broadcasting money reimbursements.

Ireland coach Phil Simmons believes cricket has gone from strength to strength in the country since his side’s stunning World Cup win over England. Press Association Two such players, Eoin Morgan and Boyd Rankin, were due to face their home country in the match at Malahide. Simmons said: “The only thing we can do is put things in place for the players. If they decide to move on, what can you do? “But everything that has been done behind the scenes from employment of different staff, the academy coming up, the push on young players to play a lot more provincial cricket, that is what we are looking for. “We are a little bit ahead of schedule so hopefully as we go along we can pull everyone forward a little bit.” A 10,000-strong crowd was anticipated for England’s visit after all tickets for the fixture were sold. The match has been referred to by some as Ireland’s biggest ever on home on soil. Simmons said: “Two years ago they would never have thought about this. “They have to come out and enjoy it, enjoy the occasion, the whole village, the spectacle it will be – and enjoy the Irish win!” Former West Indies batsman Simmons said: “It has had a huge impact. “The biggest impact is that the players now believe after that that we can play against anybody and beat anybody on any stage. “The other impact is there are a lot of people, a lot of kids playing the game all over. “There was a little bit of that after Pakistan but there is a lot more since then. “We have almost tripled our numbers participating over the last five or six years. “Things like that encourage you that we are doing the right thing.” Ireland have ambitions to secure Test-playing status and Simmons, who has now been in charge of the national side for six years, believes great strides have been made on and off the field. The downside of the progress is that some of the country’s better players have felt they cannot wait for the Test dream to become reality and have switched allegiance to England. England wanted little reminding of the shock loss they suffered to the Irish in Bangalore two years ago as they prepared to face them again in the RSA Challenge one-day international in Dublin. But that result provided Ireland and Irish cricket in general with a huge boost, injecting fresh momentum after the landmark win over Pakistan in the 2007 World Cup.
Press Association Newcastle boss McClaren vowed to wrap Elliot in “cotton wool” as the 29-year-old continues to battle thigh trouble after playing through the pain in the 1-0 Premier League victory at Dean Court. Ireland face Bosnia and Herzegovina in the two-leg Euro 2016 play-off in the next fortnight, but McClaren wants Elliot to focus on full fitness rather than international duty. Manager Martin O’Neill has David Forde, Kieren Westwood and Darren Randolph as his other goalkeeping options for Ireland’s Bosnia double-header. “You’ll see him walking around with cotton wool wrapped around him for the next two weeks,” said McClaren, still missing injured goalkeepers Tim Krul and Karl Darlow. “So that’s what we’ll have to do. “Rob’s been heroic to get us through the last two games in what two weeks ago was a big crisis. “I said at half-time character will win us this game, and character did. Tremendous.” Elliot pulled off a string of fine saves as McClaren’s men sneaked out of Bournemouth with a hugely fortunate win. Ayoze Perez’s winning strike was Newcastle’s only shot on target, with Elliot excelling despite his continued injury woes. Newcastle are still missing injured duo Krul and Darlow, with boss McClaren keen to let Elliot chase full fitness not glory with Ireland in the next two weeks. Ireland will travel to Bosnia for the first leg on Friday, November 13, before hosting the return clash at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium three days later. The 18-year-old academy goalkeeper Brendan Pearson travelled with Newcastle and even warmed up at Bournemouth, just in case Elliot exacerbated his injury in pre-match preparations. McClaren stressed Elliot’s continued importance to Newcastle as his other senior goalkeepers continue to battle their own injury issues. “People talk about goalkeepers getting you points, and if you’re a top goalkeeper you get 15 to 20 points from performances like that,” said McClaren. “Missing Tim Krul, we talked about that, and Robbie’s got to step in and do it. “Today he got us three points without a shadow of a doubt. “We were debating what to do but he was so positive from Monday that we gave him every chance. “Sometimes you think ‘wow, how did we win that’. “We got it through character, endeavour, organisation, perseverance. “Once after an hour we were never going to score the second goal and were never going to keep the ball long enough we just more or less shored up and defended for our lives. “And when we did that, we got through it and our goalkeeper was outstanding. “And during the season you’ll have three or four of them, and today we got the one. We’ll take it. “Where we’ve lost other games, say at Sunderland, where we should have won, we’ll take the three points today.” Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe felt his side should have had a penalty when Josh King went down under a challenge from Fabricio Coloccini in the first half. “My initial reaction was yes I thought it was a penalty but I haven’t seen it again, and I may be slightly biased on that,” said Howe. “I had a feeling that he put his arm round his throat and King went down, so I thought it was.” Howe also rejected accusations of a bust-up with Glenn Murray, despite omitting the former Crystal Palace striker from the match squad. “No not at all, not at all, I’ve not fallen out with anybody,” said Howe when asked if he and Murray were not seeing eye to eye. “Every player has to prove they deserve to be involved.” Steve McClaren may try to block Rob Elliot from the Republic of Ireland’s Euro 2016 play-off despite the Newcastle goalkeeper’s match-winning heroics against Bournemouth.
The shifting teeth in Former Vice President Joe Biden’s mouth got more focus than what was coming out of it last night during the third Democratic debate in Houston, Texas. He struggled to answer a question on gun control prompting viral claims that his teeth were falling out.ABC News host David Muir had asked Biden, 76, why voters should give him a second chance to pass gun control proposals after none were signed into law while he was in office in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.“Because I’ve got it done before. I’m the only one up here that’s ever beat the NRA. Only one to beat the NRA nationally. I brought the Brady Bill into focus and became law,” Biden replied as he moved his mouth uncomfortably.It is not clear whether Biden was chewing gum that got stuck in the wrong place or if he suffered some other oral problem. Biden appears to have undergone significant cosmetic surgery in recent decades, including having hair plugs, Botox injections, and veneers. He is known for his startlingly white teeth, which have had their own website for more than a decade.

Henry Schoonmaker’s bad habit surfaced in sixth grade.A basketball player first and foremost, Schoonmaker jumped every time he took a long-range shot. When he started playing lacrosse, he took the same approach.“I didn’t know exactly how you were supposed to shoot,” Schoonmaker said, “so I just did the jumper.”He’s been tearing up defenses with that jumper ever since. Though coaches and friends have encouraged Schoonmaker to remove the jump shot from his game, he’s made it his staple, his go-to shot. Schoonmaker is fourth on No. 7 Syracuse (10-3, 4-1 Big East) in goals, and his jump shot will once again be a factor against No. 1 Notre Dame (10-2, 4-1) on Saturday at MetLife Stadium.“I know a lot of guys do the jump shot,” Schoonmaker said. “It’s just the difference with me is that I do it every time.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSchoonmaker said he jumps on his shot 80-90 percent of the time, and will usually jump if he’s more than seven yards away from net. In high school, Schoonmaker said close to 60 percent of his goals were fast-break jumpers off of faceoffs. It works for him, but he’s thought about getting rid of the shot altogether many times.After redshirting his freshman season, Schoonmaker knew he had to make a change. Syracuse head coach John Desko often casually told him to get rid of the jumper.“You’re probably taking some speed off of that,” Desko would tell him in practice, or, “You should try not to do that.” The suggestions weren’t very demanding, though. Desko knew Schoonmaker wouldn’t break the habit.“There’s really no reason to jump and shoot,” Desko said. “I think you leave yourself susceptible to physical contact and injury anytime you leave your feet, just like a basketball player.”But that’s why Schoonmaker started jumping in the first place. He was a basketball player as a kid, and said he regrets not trying out for his high school team. Jumping was something he did all the time.It works for Schoonmaker, so Desko isn’t worried.“Even though you’re working on things in practice, when you’re in a game and you’re making a split decision, a lot of times, you revert back to your old habits,” Desko said, “but I’m not sweating it too much.”Schoonmaker’s heard the advice before. He heard it in high school and he hears it at Syracuse. He heard it during the summer when his friends back in Portland, Ore., suggested he make the switch for good. Schoonmaker tried, but felt uncomfortable and returned to the jump shot after just three weeks. It was all he knew.It’s a shot he’s perfected during the years and one that’s befuddled goaltenders throughout the season. Schoonmaker sprints downfield and looks ready to take a standard shot. Then, he stops and jumps. The shot comes milliseconds later.“I’ll do a move or whatever, and I’ll know I should probably plant or just shoot it, but I just naturally jump and I’m like, ‘Ooh, I probably shouldn’t have done that,’” Schoonmaker said. “And sometimes, it’ll end up going in.”He said people often look at him quizzically, wondering what he’s doing. Sometimes, he doesn’t even know. But it works.Schoonmaker is shooting 34.9 percent this season, which puts him at a higher mark than SU’s three leading scorers: JoJo Marasco, Kevin Rice and Luke Cometti.Syracuse goalie Dominic Lamolinara said he’s never faced someone who uses the jump shot as often as Schoonmaker. He said goalies know it’s coming, but it’s not something for which they can prepare. That extra split second is what stupefies them, Lamolinara said.Lamolinara said goalies think the ball is going one way and then, all of a sudden, it’s coming at a completely different angle. He said Schoonmaker’s unique delivery often throws him off in practice.“I don’t know if he just gets more power on it or if he feels he’s more accurate,” Lamolinara said, “but until a goalie can consistently stop him in a game, I feel like he shouldn’t change it up.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 24, 2013 at 9:55 pm Contact Trevor: firstname.lastname@example.org | @TrevorHass
To expand its reach to students on campus, the Vietnamese Student Association hosted its inaugural Vietnamese Heritage Week from Monday through Friday this week.The Vietnamese Student Association hosted its inaugural Vietnamese Heritage Week. Wanting He | Daily TrojanThe organization coordinated events highlighting a different aspect of the Vietnamese culture, including beauty and films.“By having one event everyday, hopefully we can reach a lot of people and hopefully people who haven’t come out to our event before might come to learn something [and] enjoy all the free stuff we have,” VSA senior adviser Allison Mai said.The week kicked off on April 2 with a photo campaign. VSA encouraged students to take photos with a sign that read: “I love Vietnamese culture because…”According to Vietnamese Culture Night Director Nathan Vo, the varied responses demonstrated how differently Vietnamese culture can be experienced for each individual.“Some people [said], ‘I love Vietnamese culture because I love my mom’s food,’” Vo said. “I said, ‘I love Vietnamese culture because it represents resilience and strength,’ because of the whole refugee experience that many refugees have gone through after the Vietnamese War.”According to Mai, the events provide entertaining and educational experiences to learn about the history behind Vietnamese traditions through activities involving cuisine, fashion and games. Mai was specifically in charge of the Fashion and Beauty event in Taper Hall on Tuesday.“There are a few main points that we [covered included] how Vietnamese culture has evolved over time, how these styles have been represented by Vietnamese immigrants in the U.S. and how Vietnamese Americans have influenced the beauty industry, like the nail salon industry,” Mai said.Another event on Wednesday featured traditional Vietnamese games.“I grew up playing these different traditional games with my parents, cousins and extended family … so I think it is really cool to share these games with people,” Vo said. “Especially those who have never played them before. So you can show them what you grew up with.”Vo said that he is optimistic about the benefits and accessibility to Vietnamese culture that Heritage Week brings to both the organization and all USC students. “[Heritage Week] is a lot of work,” Vo said. “But I think it is really beneficial to not just for the club, but for the USC student body in general to get a taste of Vietnamese culture … a culture of perseverance and never giving up.”

The check was presented to the Community Foundation For Northeast Michigan who will take on all donations for the project. The generous donation kicked off the pursuit to gather $250,000 for Phase I which will look to completely redo the structural problems facing the lighthouse.“We probably have a year and a half to two years to restore this structure before it starts getting very perilous,”said President of the Presque Isle Township Museum Society Katie Wolf. “I’m not sure what will happen if we don’t step in very quickly.The Township will supervise the construction and restoration since the lighthouse falls on Township property. Presque Isle Township Museum Society will do the fundraising for the four phases.This project will not require local tax dollars and be separate from the ballot item for tax money to be used on upkeep and restoration to the 40-Mile Point Lighthouse Park. The tourist destination also has limited accessibility to the property and bathrooms which will be the second item to focus on once the structure is secured.To make a donation, visit the Community Foundation for Northeast Michigan website and click the “Make a Gift” button.
