Cadiao further emphasized the value of business relations between Iloilo and Antique provinces. Moreover, Category III industries allowed to operate are financial services, Business Process Outsourcing offices, legal, accounting and auditing firms, scientific, technical and non-leisure services, and wholesale and retail establishments. “I was thinking we should really revive our economy. I want Antiqueños to go back to work and I’d like the businesses to reopen but with protocol, of course,” said Cadiao. Under the governor’s Executive Order 78, among those establishments permitted to operate for Category I include the agriculture and fishery industries, food manufacturing and food supply chains, logistics sector, health-related institutions, information technology and telecommunication companies, and media industry. “I want Antiqueños to go back to work and I’d like the businesses to reopen but with protocol, of course,” says Gov. Rhodora Cadiao. PIA The governor expressed her enthusiasm of wanting Antiqueños to return to work and for businesses to reopen as the local economy has been greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.center_img As for Category IV, the operations of establishments dedicated for amusement, gaming, fitness, and kids and tourism industries are allowed but at a maximum of 50 percent operational capacity. Meanwhile, only those hotels and other accommodation establishments that have been accredited as provided by law and relevant issuances of the Department of Tourism and the Department of the Interior and Local Government are allowed to operate. Industries belonging to Category II such as mining and other manufacturing industries, export and electronic commerce, delivery, repair and maintenance, and housing and office services were also given the go signal to open.

The Bay Area teams were set to play at Oracle Park on March 24. That was two days before the start of the regular season in Major League Baseball. The announcement came Wednesday after the San Francisco mayor banned gatherings of 1,000 or more people. The Latest: A’s-Giants exhibition in San Francisco canceled ___1:20One of college basketball’s postseason invitational tournaments has been canceled.Organizers of the College Basketball Invitational, widely known as the CBI, say they’ve decided to cancel this year’s event because of the “uncertainty about the coronavirus and the impact it is having on college campuses across the country.”The tournament is played at campus sites for teams that aren’t invited to the NCAA Tournament or the NIT. That decision affects the Seattle Mariners’ first seven games of the season, when they host the Texas Rangers and Minnesota Twins. It also applies to home games for the MLS Seattle Sounders, XFL Seattle Dragons and a pair of junior hockey teams in the area.The restrictions do not include Spokane, where NCAA Tournament games are scheduled to take place next week. The men’s first and second rounds are being played at the Spokane Arena, while early rounds of the women’s tournament could end up being played on campus at Gonzaga.___1:35 p.m.Stanford is still willing to host the NCAA women’s basketball tournament with a strict limit on spectators if selected to do so next week. The statement issued Wednesday says officials look forward to bringing back the CBI in 2021.___1 p.m.The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases told a congressional committee Wednesday that he would recommend the NBA not allow fans at games in response to the coronavirus.That answer by Dr. Anthony Fauci came hours before NBA owners are scheduled to meet to discuss the next steps in responding to the growing concern about the virus.center_img The school in Northern California said Wednesday that all sporting events on campus will be closed to the public through May 15 or until further notice in response to the spread of the new coronavirus.Only participants, coaches, working staff, officials, credentialed media and a very limited number of family members, friends and guests of the competing teams will be allowed to attend. Santa Clara County announced a ban earlier this week of gatherings of more than 1,000 people.The seventh-ranked Cardinal were expected to be picked as a host for the tournament that starts March 20. The top 16 teams are picked as hosts of the opening two rounds.The NCAA didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.— reporting by Josh Dubow March 11, 2020 2:05 p.m.The Mariners will move home games from Seattle through end of March following the state of Washington’s decision to ban large group events in response to the coronavirus outbreak.Seattle had been scheduled to open the season at Safeco Field with a four-game series against Texas from March 26-29, then host Minnesota in a three-game series from March 30 through April 1.The Mariners say they are working with the commissioner’s office on alternative plans.Washington Gov. Jay Inslee on Wednesday announced a ban on all large gatherings in the three counties of the Seattle metro area through at least the end of March. Fauci was responding to a question from Rep. Glenn Grothman, a Wisconsin Republican, during a meeting of the House Oversight Committee. Grothman asked, “Is the NBA underreacting or is the Ivy League overreacting?” He was referencing how the Ivy League recently canceled its basketball tournaments, instead of having them played without fans in attendance or keeping the status quo.“We would recommend that there not be large crowds,” Fauci said. “If that means not having any people in the audience when the NBA plays, so be it. But as a public health official, anything that has crowds is something that would give a risk to spread.”last_img read more

Former Santos FC player launches Football Academy in Kenya

first_imgAFTER establishing his academy in England where he nurtured and developed many players to gain access to premiership clubs, Peter Barry, a former player for Guyana’s Santos FC, recently journeyed to Kenya, Africa, where he established his Football Academy.“I tried many times, even through application process with no success to help and share my talent with Guyana football. So I turned to Africa where they welcomed my philosophy and experience with open arms,” Barry told Chronicle Sport.Barry said his “intentions are to give young African players the opportunity to play in Europe and help coaches enhance their qualifications.”Barry, who is a licensed coach in the United Kingdom, said he would have preferred to share his skills and expertise in Guyana since there is where he learnt most of his football.The UK-based Barry said he was very impressed with the talent in Africa and it’s as though he has found a gold mine.“My immediate goal is to nurture and develop the players there to European standards then open the doors for trials and exchange programmes for the youths in Africa,” said Barry.last_img read more

Stretch of road games looms in Syracuse’s schedule

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Fourty-two days. Eleven cities. 14 games.Last weekend Syracuse embarked on a stretch of 12 road games out of its next 14 matches, a span covering more than one-third of the season. The travel doesn’t make the lives of SU’s players any easier, but the team finds value in the close quarters they spend a majority of their season in.“It’s always a good thing to get out on the road,” senior goalkeeper Jenn Gilligan said.After beginning the season by hosting Clarkson, the Orange (1-2) is now in the midst of a stretch of a dozen road games leading all the way up to Thanksgiving. SU will travel to play UConn (0-1-1, 0-1 Hockey East) in a Saturday afternoon faceoff, followed by a matchup at Providence (0-2) on Sunday.The road trip comes after a weekend where Syracuse faced Northeastern University and UNH, falling to the Huskies but beating the Wildcats.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse head coach Paul Flanagan knew he’d have trouble managing the multitude of away games that headline the 2015-16 campaign, especially as he evaluates the Orange’s strengths and weaknesses.“You have to make the best of it, right?” Flanagan said.But Syracuse seniors Nicole Ferrara and Jenn Gilligan think their road games, which could be obtrusive to the team’s development, provide an advantage for the Orange.“It’s kind of that extra incentive to get that win,” Gilligan said. “We get something if we win on top of it, whereas the other team has something to lose.”Ferrara believes that road trips foster a close team bonding that’s harder to cultivate in a stretch of home games when players can resume their everyday lives.“It’s a good thing. We’re on the bus together, and it’s more time together.” Ferrara said.There’s plenty of entertainment on Syracuse’s bus. The freshmen provide music for the team by singing on the loudspeaker system, but only the singer can hear the actual song through her headphones. The team also watched several movies while traveling along Interstate 90 last weekend.As a pre-game ritual in the hotel, the team plays “clump,” a game where everyone has to clump together, then quickly match up in groups of certain numbers called out by a moderator.The Orange also goes on walks around the away team’s city before games. The road activities ease the burden of a strenuous window at the beginning of SU’s season — a window the team is grateful closes before a season-ending stretch of conference play.“If we had to do all of this in the second half of the year, it would get old,” Flanagan said. “But early in the year, it’s a great advantage.”center_img Published on October 15, 2015 at 2:11 am Contact Chris: cfthomse@syr.edulast_img read more
