The orange alert means the virus is severe and passes easily from person to person and was last raised during an outbreak of H1N1 influenza in 2009-2010. The highest alert is red, which indicates the virus is spreading widely.Upon being asked on Friday whether the Indonesian government would issue a travel warning following the raised alert status, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Teuku Faizasyah said: “I haven’t heard of any status change for travels to Singapore.”He added that the government had already conducted health screenings at hundreds of entry points to the country following protocols issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) on regulating incoming and outcoming foreigners and Indonesian citizens.Read also: Climate, immunity, incompetence?

Roy Hodgson tells Luke Shaw to make England’s left-back position his own

first_imgLuke Shaw can replicate Ashley Cole’s achievements by winning 100 England caps and making the left-back position his own for over a decade, boss Roy Hodgson has told him. The England defender suffered injuries throughout his first season at Old Trafford, but after dedicating part of his holiday to a rigorous fitness regime this summer, he now looks in excellent shape and has found form for club and country. Four left-backs have been called into the England squad since Cole retired last year. Now Hodgson believes Shaw has the potential to make the position his own for many years to come. “He’s still only 20 and if he keeps going then he’s on track to be another Ashley Cole, a 100 cap man and I would advise him to study Ashley Cole, look at what Ashley did for England and set my sights on the same thing,” the England manager said. Cole was England’s first-choice left-back for the vast majority of his 13-year international career. It was only when Hodgson first spotted Shaw’s potential that he dropped the 107-cap Roma defender and that prompted Cole to retire from international football. Picking Shaw ahead of Cole for the World Cup was a big gamble for Hodgson, but it showed how much faith he had in the youngster, who had made his full Premier League debut in November 2012. The England manager insists he never lost faith in the player even when his critics were at their fiercest. “I think he’s been a bit harshly treated personally,” said Hodgson, who played Shaw in the wins over San Marino and Switzerland over the course of the last week. “He didn’t look as if he was looking after himself too badly at Southampton and played well enough to get the £30million move. “I’m not certain I want to jump on that bandwagon. But it’s nice to see him back, playing confidently and showing him the form that got him the move to Manchester United in the first place. “We’ve always believed in him. I thought he played very well against Costa Rica and was pencilled in as the player who could give Leighton Baines a run for his money but he had a tough season. “It must have been tough for him and his family but it might benefit him.” Shaw will return to domestic duties in Saturday when United host Liverpool at Old Trafford. Wayne Rooney is hoping to score his first league goal of the season after breaking Sir Bobby Charlton’s scoring record against the Swiss. “There’s no better game to go into than Liverpool at home after losing our last game it is a game we have to win and it’s something I’m looking forward to,” the England skipper said. It represents a real sea change for Shaw who, a year ago, was struggling to adapt to life as a £30million Manchester United player. The left-back was made to train on his own during the latter stages of United’s pre-season tour because he reported for duty out of shape. Press Associationlast_img read more

Schneidman: The 3-pointer is no longer life or death for Syracuse basketball

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 31, 2016 at 9:25 pm With a sweeping declaration, Jim Boeheim injected flare into a team that lacked it. A dozen 3-pointers set as the desired minimum. No postseason last year, little expectations this one. With NCAA investigations still at the forefront of Syracuse basketball, a 3-point-savvy approach gave it a respite from everything else.In two exhibition games, Syracuse made 26-of-61 shots from beyond the arc. An astronomical number of makes and takes over a two-game stretch compared to last season, even for scrimmages. In the early going, Boeheim said the Orange would live and die by the long ball.SU has benefited from the 3 (shooting 11-of-23 in a two-point win against Duke) and suffered from the 3 (shooting 5-of-26 in a 12-point loss to St. John’s). The Orange has also lost to Clemson and Virginia despite making 13 deep balls in each game. But in Saturday’s 60-57 win against Georgia Tech, a team Boeheim called one of the better ones in the league, Syracuse (15-8, 5-5 Atlantic Coast) made only six 3s and showed dimensions it hadn’t before.“Tonight wasn’t necessarily about hitting 3s,” Tyler Lydon said after Saturday’s win. “It was more on the defensive end and just getting to the basket.”Boeheim praised Malachi Richardson after the game for attacking the rim when his 3s weren’t falling. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNine times this season Syracuse has made fewer than 10 3s against a Power 5 opponent. Only three of those have been wins, one Saturday, one against Boston College — who sits 0-8 in the ACC — and one against Connecticut in a game Syracuse made a season-high 24 free throws.The Orange escaped against Georgia Tech because of late free throws, but only made half the total it had against the Huskies. SU was also facing an opponent, unlike the Eagles, whose five conference losses had come by an average of just 5.2 points per game. Syracuse’s early-season identity faded as the game lagged down the stretch Saturday and the Orange was tasked with dipping to the depths of an arsenal it had rarely explored through 22 games.“You have to play defense in a zone,” Boeheim said. “It’s not some freakin’ magic trick here.”Georgia Tech’s previous lowest point total in conference play was 64. Syracuse reset that to 57, almost 20 points below the Yellow Jackets’ season average and only the seventh time SU has allowed fewer than 60 points in 23 games. The Orange held GT to a field-goal percentage 7 percent lower than its season average and a 3-point clip 9 percent lower than its season average.On top of a stout defensive effort, Syracuse shot 46.9 percent from 2-point range while it took its fourth-fewest amount of 3s on the season. In the final 10:26, Syracuse restricted Georgia Tech to 10 points while only one 3-pointer accounted for a sliver of SU’s final 13 points.“It wasn’t falling for us so we were able to get in the lane and make plays and make things happen,” Trevor Cooney said. “But I mean our defense picked up, we knew we weren’t making shots so we had to get stops.”Georgia Tech struggled to pound Syracuse’s thin backline via passes through the top of the zone like opponents have so often done. Gbinije cut off bounce passes headed to the middle of the paint. Dajuan Coleman neutralized the ACC’s best rebounder in Georgia Tech’s Charles Mitchell. Malachi Richardson and Gbinije, two of SU’s best 3-point shooters, put a seal on the game from the foul line.It wasn’t the conventional Syracuse that has come to rely on the deep ball from a guard-heavy lineup, even as Boeheim played four of them for part of the final five minutes.It was, however, a Syracuse that flashed dimensions on both ends that it hadn’t before.“If we do those things,” Gbinije said, “making shots is just going to be a plus for us.”Matt Schneidman is the sports editor at The Daily Orange, where his column appears occasionally.

Kayla Treanor’s six goals guide No. 3 Syracuse to 14-8 win over No. 7 Virginia

first_imgKayla Treanor led the way Saturday afternoon with six goals as No. 3 Syracuse (6-1, 1-0 Atlantic Coast) opened up conference play with a 14-8 victory over No. 7 Virginia (4-2, 0-1 ACC) in Charlottesville, Virginia. SU freshman Nicole Levy opened up the game with a goal less than two minutes into the game and never gave up the lead, scoring seven goals in each half.Levy, Riley Donahue, Taylor Gait and Gabby Jaquith joined Treanor on the scoreboard with two goals apiece. Donahue tallied four assists in the contest as well.After two costly turnovers late in the game during the Orange’s 11-10 overtime loss to Florida Tuesday, goalkeeper Allie Murray made six saves while allowing six goals. Head coach Gary Gait replaced Murray with backup goalie Bri Stahrr for 1:32 in the second half, but Murray returned after Stahrr allowed a quick two goals.Syracuse owned a 14-10 advantage in draw controls, and the Orange forced 11 Cavalier turnovers, while only committing eight.SU fouled 37 times to Virginia’s 30, but UVA scored the only free-position goal of the game in the second half, when Kasey Behr beat Murray. Syracuse had three opportunities to convert on free position shots, but missed each.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse will now enjoy a weeklong break as the Orange next returns to action against No. 1 Maryland (4-0) at 6 p.m. on March 12 in the Carrier Dome. The Terrapins ended SU’s 2015 season in the NCAA tournament semifinals with a 10-8 win, the third year in the row Syracuse had been sent home by Maryland.

Arjuna awardee Shubhankar Sharma on verge of losing out on degree, Delhi University unrelenting on scheduling conflict

first_img Shivani Gupta Written By “Our request is that Shubhankar can be allowed to finish his exams either after his international events. Since DU, School of Open learning conducts yearly exams in May-June window, it is making it impossible for him to appear because he has his main playing schedule in USA and Europe at the time. Shubhankar is currently the highest-ranked Indian golfer and very much in the running to qualify for Tokyo 2020 Olympics and cannot afford to skip big events,”said Mohan Sharma while speaking to Republic TV. Only two players from each country are allowed entry outside of the World Top-15.  Despite such a stellar show, Mohan Sharma, Shubhankar’s father, is struggling to get his son a chance to sit for his final year exams.

I feel that with the Olympics so close in 2020 and with the ‘Khelo India’ initiative by Colonel Rathore, I think it is the least that the educational institutions like Delhi University can do for kids like me to pursue their careers. I’ve done two years already and it’d be a shame if I can’t give the exams this year and I’ll lose the first two years as well.  “So this is just a humble request from my end to Delhi University and other educational institution to promote sports and encourage kids that are representing the country because I feel it’s the least that can be done. I just hope they take notice, if they provide help in any way, which will be really appreciated.”  First Published: 22nd April, 2019 13:55 IST The latest in a long list of Indian athletes suffering due to rigid university rules is all set to get longer this year unless urgent action is taken. One of India’s brightest young golfers, Arjuna awardee Shubhankar Sharma is on the verge of losing out on his BA (Hons) Political Science degree due to the clash between his exams and his international sporting schedule.

Dodgers’ Max Muncy persevering through a rough final month

first_imgKELLY STATUSAfter saying Tuesday that reliever Joe Kelly would “hopefully” pitch in a game on Thursday, Roberts said Wednesday that Kelly is tentatively scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Friday and probably won’t pitch in a game until Sunday, the final day of the regular season.Kelly has not pitched since Wednesday of last week and has only faced seven batters in the past two weeks. The Dodgers have offered no explanation for Kelly’s downtime other than Roberts saying it is “an overall-body situation.”“His body is responding well,” Roberts said. When prompted on what it was responding to, Roberts only said, “Rest and treatment.”If Kelly pitches just once more this season, that will have to be enough to assuage any concerns the Dodgers have before setting their postseason roster for the first round. Roberts said he remains confident Kelly will be ready to not only pitch in the postseason but handle whatever workload the Dodgers need from him.“I think one part of it is his confidence. He’s done it before,” Roberts said. “I’ve talked to Joe and he could pitch right now. But I think managing Joe so we could look out over the next four weeks and make sure he can manage the workload that is coming – when a player talks about that, you’ve got to listen. I’m all ears and we’re in lockstep.”HILL PLANLeft-hander Rich Hill reported no problems with his injured knee (or flexor tendon) a day after pitching two scoreless innings against the Padres. Hill will throw a bullpen session in the next day or two then start against the Giants on Sunday. He is expected to pitch three innings Sunday, his final chance to make his case for the postseason.If it is decided Hill is not ready to pitch in the NL Division Series, Roberts held out the possibility that he could join the rotation for the NLCS if the Dodgers advance.“Absolutely,” Roberts said. “The goal is to have him on the DS but Richie … is not going to want to be a part of something if he feels he can’t perform up to his ability.“Regardless if it works or if it doesn’t – our goal obviously is for it to work out – but if it doesn’t certainly we’re not going to punt on the season for him and the CS would then be the next option.”UP NEXTDodgers (LHP Clayton Kershaw, 15-6, 3.15 ERA) at Padres (LHP Joey Lucchesi, 10-9, 4.28 ERA), Thursday, 12:40 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available), 570 AM “It’s been very difficult,” Muncy acknowledged, admitting there is still pain in his healing wrist. “I feel like over this stretch coming back from the wrist the swing felt good but there were a couple little things which were off mechanically which was messing with my timing – which just kind of happens. Not only does it happen but it was against some of the better pitchers in the league.“You obviously want to get things right. But sometimes you just have to realize, you know, you’re not supposed to get hits off those guys. For me, that’s hard to just accept. So you start diving into it and you get to a point where you finally start feeling good. Then the quad pops up and you’ve got a couple more days off. It felt like there was a little bit of a scuffle in there, but we’re slowly getting back into it.”Muncy took some more abuse in his first plate appearance Wednesday, getting hit in the foot by a pitch. It was the eighth time this season Muncy has been hit by a pitch – half of them against the Padres.Despite the physical ordeal, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Muncy is “actually right where we need him to be” heading into the postseason.“I think it’s a hard gauge when you come off the IL for a week and you’re facing Syndergaard and deGrom and Wheeler,” Roberts said. “Munce is going to be fine. I think he’s looking over the ball well. Just his presence, as we’ve talked about, in the lineup impacts our club.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img SAN DIEGO — The past month has not been easy for Max Muncy.He took a 95-mph fastball off his right wrist on Aug. 28, suffering a slight fracture. He returned to action just 16 days later but found himself running a pitching gauntlet – the starters in his first four games back were Noah Syndergaard, Jacob deGrom, Zack Wheeler and Blake Snell.Not surprisingly, Muncy went 1 for his first 15 with six strikeouts in his first four games after returning. Things were looking up in his next two games when he went 3 for 10 with a pair of doubles – then he missed two games with a minor quadriceps injury in his left leg.He returned from that Tuesday and hit the first grand slam of his career – then had to step in against Padres reliever Matt Strahm. It was Strahm who broke Muncy’s wrist with that pitch last month. He uncorked a high fastball that had Muncy shaking his head and later admitting he stood “two feet farther away” from the plate than normal while striking out.last_img read more
