Ron DeSantis announced Thursday afternoon. The state’s three other positive COVID-19 cases are a Hillsborough County woman in her 20s who recently traveled to northern Italy and a person who lives with her, and a Manatee County man in his 60s diagnosed after showing symptoms of pneumonia.

How quickly the federal bill delivers $950 million in state assistance could temper the emergency assistance the Legislature may be called upon to allocate.Senate President Bill Galvano, R-Bradenton, said Tuesday lawmakers could earmark an additional $10 million to $20 million in public-health dollars in the fiscal year 2021 budget.Lawmakers are considering a measure that would give Rivkees, also DOH secretary, “super line” budgetary discretion in directing resources to the contain the coronavirus.As of 2:30 p.m. Thursday, DOH’s COVID-19 website listed four positive cases – including the Santa Rosa County man – 31 negative tests, 69 pending test results, and 248 currently being monitored, among the 948 people the state has monitored to date.The website also features a new entry: Florida Cases Repatriated.There are five Floridians who traveled to China and, upon return to the U.S., tested positive. They are isolated in other states, DeSantis said. If they do not show symptoms within 14 days, they can return, he said.At least four other Floridians in other states have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and remain isolated in those states, he said.The Santa Rosa County man traveled internationally, but “he’s not in shape to fully answer all the questions, so there is an investigation ongoing,” DeSantis said.

Symptoms appear within two to 14 days after exposure and include fever, cough, runny nose and difficulty breathing.DeSantis and Florida Surgeon General Dr. Scott Rivkees addressed the state’s COVID-19 situation at a Tampa new conference. The governor reiterated that with increased testing capacities and more people being screened, “we are anticipating additional positive tests.” You have entered an incorrect email address!

Florida’s Congressional delegation praised the bipartisan cooperation that quickly moved the $8.3 billion coronavirus emergency package through the House and Senate.“Our package includes $950 million for state and local health agencies to protect the public health, including surveillance, laboratory testing, infection control, contact tracing and mitigation,” said U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Tampa, noting the funding will help DOH’s Tampa, Miami and Jacksonville labs test more people faster.Castor said a provision to allow Medicaid to cover telehealth services “provides additional protections for our older neighbors by allowing Medicare providers to extend telemedicine services to seniors in our community, at an estimated cost of $500 million.”U.S. Rep. Neal Dunn, R-Panama City, a physician, cited the bill’s $3 billion for research and development into vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics that will engender long-term dividends.“This funding will make diagnostic tests more broadly available, develop medicine to treat those who are affected, assist the Food & Drug Administration in preventing shortages, and expedite vaccine and therapeutic developments,” he said.U.S. Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, D-Miami, said the measure’s $2.2 billion for public-health funding is “critical.”“This package includes $100 million for critical supplies for our public-health response, including resources for our community health centers,” she said, calling on DeSantis “to prioritize public outreach and consider creating a statewide hotline dedicated to coronavirus-related questions so our health facilities aren’t overwhelmed.” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (right) takes a tour of Florida’s Bureau of Public Health Laboratories on Monday, March 2, 2020, with the director, Stephen White.

Wesley Fofana finishes off great Clermont team try vs Exeter

first_imgThursday Jan 17, 2013 Wesley Fofana finishes off great Clermont team try vs Exeter Clermont produced some dazzling rugby as they thumped Exeter Chiefs 46-3 at the weekend, qualifying for the Heineken Cup quarter finals in the process. One of the tries of the game, a real team effort, was finished excellently by centre Wesley Fofana. The home team scored four tries in the last 20 minutes to blast away their Devon based challengers, knocking them out of the competition. Exeter will aim to give Leinster a hard time this weekend at Sandy Park, but Captain Tommy Hayes says this standard of play is something new. “The level of rugby we were exposed to was up another notch from what we have experienced in the Premiership over the last couple of years, and that is not to knock anything in the Premiership.“It is the same as when we got up into the top flight from the Championship. We knew we had to kick on, in terms of what we do as forwards and backs, how we work together, our kicking game, and in every element of the game,” he explained.“We have come up against a team who are probably favourites to win the competition, and they have just exposed us to a higher level right across the board.”Four teams have already qualified for the quarter finals, with Clermont, Harlequins, and Toulon the only sides to have won five from five matches. Ulster have also qualified, as they topped Pool 4.Clermont flyhalf David Skrela is now on a tournament total of 494 points, just six points away from receiving a prestigious ERC Elite Award. He came on and scored a converted try.Fofana’s try however was one of the best of the season, as he got on the end of a sweeping move that finished with a neat inside flick from centre partner Regan King.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

This is a house and atelier for a pottery artist family, located along a traffic circle at a station in suburban Osaka. The site is narrow flag-shaped (a rectangular site with a pole-like narrow path), with 3m of frontage and a depth of 34m. There is a large apartment building on the south side, and idle lands on the north and east sides. A distant view of the beautiful mountain range of Mt. Nijo can be seen in the east direction.Save this picture!© Yuko TadaWhile incorporating the view of Mt. Nijo from the town, which will be blocked by the construction of this building, the spaces were made by arranging high/low ceilings, and large and small areas on the traffic lines to create continuity with the town. Due to a limited budget, the structure is all exposed. The seven-layered slabs transfer floor stiffness by the steel stairs located at the open ceiling. The continuous angle braces, which support the roof, handle the out-of-plane stress of wind pressure on the south wall. The interior is a large continuous space with the atelier on the first floor and residential spaces on the second and third floors.Save this picture!© Yuko TadaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Yuko TadaThis 50m longhouse, connecting the town to Mt. Nijo, has two sceneries: “hare”, which resembles the bustle of an approach that is open to the community, and “ke” with an open flow of wind, light, and line of vision, which consists of routine pottery work and family life. The building was designed to be a small house in relationship to the town, and in the environment. Save this picture!© Yuko TadaProject gallerySee allShow lessBattersea Arts Centre / Haworth TompkinsSelected ProjectsHengqin International Financial Center / AedasSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

City Workers Beat Rugby Stars in Great British Wheelchair Rugby Tournament

first_img Last weekend saw Kyran Bracken ditch his ice skates in favour of Wheelchair Rugby as he joined Glen Jackson and Kevin Sorrell at a “Corporate Demolition Day” involving teams from some of the UK’s best known companies.Organised by Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby (GBWR) with the aim of raising funds and awareness of the paralympic sport, the mini tournament made a popular, metal-clashing change to the traditional team-building corporate day out.Following an exciting demonstration by the Great Britain paralympic team, city workers from Barclays Global Investors, Citibank, Mayer Brown, NPower and Leisure Connection played five games over the course of the afternoon. This included a game against the able-bodied Rugby stars.Barclays Global Investors made it through to the final against Kyran Bracken’s team and managed to win the day by scoring a nail-biting goal in the last second of the game. You couldn’t have scripted a more entertaining result!James Price, GBWR Development Director, comments: “Wheelchair rugby is a fast-paced, fun and tactical sport that’s enjoyable for both spectators and players. And, in terms of the UK league and Great Britain’s disabled players, it also provides a fantastic form of rehabilitation after spinal injury. Indeed, for those with lifetime disabilities it offers a great way to live a better and fuller life through sport.”James continues: “Raising awareness is a massive challenge. However, we work closely with rugby union, and thought what better way to help people gain an appreciation of wheelchair rugby than to get able bodied rugby stars to take a beating from corporate workers in the city?! The event was a fantastic success with all involved saying just how much fun and hard work the sport is. In fact, Kyran Bracken even said he would like to do the event again but make it even bigger next time!”Not only a success in terms of creating new supporters of Wheelchair Rugby, the Corporate Demolition Day also helped to raise almost £18,000 which will go towards specially constructed Wheelchair Rugby chairs, training weekends and other GBWR activities.To find out more about GBWR or to donate money to help support this fantastic rehabilitating sport, please visit www.gbwr.co.uk.-Ends-For further information or to arrange an interview with key spokespeople please contact:Katie Gauden at Voice Communications on01621 890230 or email [email protected] to editors:< Corporate teams were from Barclays Global Investors, Citibank, MayerBrown, NPower and Leisure Connection.< Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby (GBWR) is a 20-year-old not-for-profit registered charity representing the sport across the UK and Great Britain on the world stage.< The charity aims to develop a fully-inclusive sport enabling players to achieve and reach their full potential regardless of financial status or disability.< Wheelchair rugby is a unisex Paralympic sport.

Two desperate, racist lies

first_imgAlong with the club, the Taser, tear gas and the gun, imperialism maintains its grip over the oppressed and workers around the globe by spawning falsehood after falsehood.The reason for this is quite simple. When they have to rely on brutality alone, it’s a sign they’re in trouble, losing ideological control of the population. But the more desperate their lies and the less believable they are, the more trouble the imperialists are in.Thus, we examine two statements made this October, one in the U.S. and one in occupied Palestine, that strain credibility so much that their repetition may boomerang on the liars.Netanyahu’s Big LieThe first was so unbelievable that it defies all reason. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu turned to a vicious, racist lie to attack the new Palestinian rebellion. In a speech Oct. 20 before the 37th Zionist Congress, Netanyahu stood history on its head. He said that, until 1941, Adolf Hitler had only planned to expel Jews from German-occupied Europe, not kill them, and that it was the Grand Mufti Haj Amin al Husseini, a religious leader from Jerusalem, who convinced the Nazi leader to exterminate the Jews.There is absolutely no evidence that such a conversation ever took place. Every non-Nazi historian, including Israeli historians who have contradicted Netanyahu, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, agree that the systematic murder of European Jews was entirely the idea of Hitler and and other Nazis.Palestine Liberation Organization Secre­tary General Saeb Erakat pointed out that by telling this Big Lie, Netanyahu is “further fueling the political issue into a religious one, and underscoring his commitment to the continued occupation and violence against Palestinians.” (cnn.com, Oct. 22)At least 45 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli occupation forces and racist settlers since a new Intifada rebellion erupted in early October, in further proof that the Israeli oppressors even within Jerusalem have to rely on brute force. In this case, Netanyahu exposed his desperation and further exposed the racist nature of apartheid Israel.The FBI’s Big LieA few days after Netanyahu’s speech, FBI Director James Comey made his own fabrication. Comey tried to argue that the Black Lives Matter movement, by its criticism of police shootings of unarmed Black people, is causing a huge increase in crime. He claimed, on Oct. 23 at the University of Chicago Law School, that the cops are not as aggressively enforcing the law because they are intimidated.This Big Lie is what the U.S. police establishment calls the “Ferguson Effect,” where the militant demonstrations in the U.S. and indeed worldwide against the murders of Black people, such as Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray and so many more, at the hands of police have emboldened “criminals” and spawned a nationwide crime wave.The Ferguson Effect is a myth. Study after study shows no correlation between the crime rate and the Black Lives Matter movement. There is no evidence, either, that cops are killing fewer unarmed Black people. There does exist evidence, however, “that many officers unfairly singled out African Americans for stops and arrests, and too often used force that was unjustified.” (nytimes.com, Oct. 24)What binds together these two slanders, one from Israel’s bloody leader and the other from the chief U.S. cop, is their goal: to undermine the growing strength of oppressed people to throw off their chains and to achieve liberation from the racist forces arrayed against them.Young people today, however, both in occupied Palestine and the imperialist U.S., seem to be adhering in greater and greater numbers to the words of Malcolm X when it comes to Big Lies and the struggle: “I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it’s for or against.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The roundup included a dinner and speaker, Interfaith ice-breaker games, workshops, food, community service and more.Nasrallah Alkhabi, president of Muslim Student Association, said his favorite part of the weekend was being around positive and active people who are actively trying to build a bridge between different beliefs.“I was happy to meet different people from TCU and other schools and learn about what they believe in,” he said.Better Together is a student religious organization that focuses on building community across faith boundaries among students.Jacob Greenstein, a 2016 graduate of TCU and an interfaith workshop instructor, said, “A large component of what we do are site visits We want people to become more familiar of religious opportunities in Fort Worth.”“We love to meet people where they are,” he said. “They may be ready to become a champion of interfaith or they may be hesitant to starting that discussion.”Better Together partners with non-profit organizations around Fort Worth to bring together people of different backgrounds to do service together. “It’s our hope that by doing this important work we will show the world around us that we are, in fact, better together.”The roundup included a service project with Catholic Charities Fort Worth. The website said “we are fighting to stop the cycle of poverty. We strive to make an impact starting with each individual person who walks through our doors.”Students helped re-arrange the donations warehouse and clean out items that could not be given away.Senior Myrah Osmanu said she was excited about the community service. “I work a lot with the Refugee Services of Texas so it was interesting to learn about the differences between both organizations.” Twitter Madison Goforthhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/madison-goforth/ Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more

Six to nine month jail terms for contributors to exile radio station

first_imgNews Follow the news on Vietnam April 27, 2021 Find out more 12.05.2008 – Three pro-democracy activists to be tried in Ho Chi Minh CityReporters Without Borders appealed today for clemency in the case of three people who are due to be tried in Ho Chi Minh City on 13 May in connection with a meeting organised by the banned Viet Tan (Reform) party in the city on 17 November to discuss the promotion of democracy. No specific charges have been brought against them but the authorities have talked of “terrorism.”Two of the meeting’s six participants, including one of those facing trial, were regular contributors to the Vietnamese exile radio station New Horizon. Three of the meeting’s participants, a French woman and two US citizens, were released and deported. The three who are to be tried have been in a Ho Chi Minh City prison for the past six months.They are Thai citizen Somsak Khunmy (a New Horizon contributor), Ho Chi Minh City businessman Nguyen The Vu, and Nguyen Quoc Quan, a US citizen of Vietnamese origin. Relatives say their health has deteriorated as a result of negligence by the prison authorities.Reporters Without Borders joins the many international organisations that have voiced support for the pro-democracy activists in the run-up to their trial.“It would be shocking if Asian persons – a Thai and two Vietnamese – were to be convicted while the three other people involved, a French woman and two Americans, were released,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This kind of judicial discrimination would be deplorable and we therefore call for their acquittal.” VietnamAsia – Pacific Three contributors to the Vietnamese exile radio station New Horizon were convicted of terrorist activities by a court in Ho Chi Minh City today and were sentenced them to terms ranging from six to nine months in prison. They were arrested during a meeting held in Ho Chi Minh City on 17 November 2007 to discuss pro-democracy activities.Nguyen Quoc Quan, 55, a US citizen of Vietnamese origin, was sentenced to six months in prison and expulsion on completion of his sentence, which will be in a few days with account taken for the time spent in pretrial detention.Nguyen The Vu, 31, was sentenced to five months and 26 days, the exact time he spent in pretrial detention, and was to be released later in the day. Nguyen Hai, 57, a Thai citizen of Vietnamese origin who also uses the Thai name of Somsak Khunmy, was given a nine-month sentence.————————– News News May 14, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Six to nine month jail terms for contributors to exile radio station Vietnam sentences journalist Tran Thi Tuyet Dieu to eight years in prison Receive email alerts VietnamAsia – Pacific Three more independent reporters arrested in Vietnam RSF laureates support jailed Vietnamese journalist Pham Doan Trang to go further Help by sharing this information April 22, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Organisation News April 7, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
