Only a COVID-19 vaccine will allow return to ‘normalcy’: UN chief

first_imgHe cited Uganda, which has given businesses more time to file their tax returns; Namibia, which provides emergency income for workers who have lost their jobs; Cape Verde, which provides food aid; and Egypt, which has reduced taxation on industries. “We need an ambitious effort to ensure that international stakeholders operate through a harmonized, integrated and leveraged approach to maximize the speed and scale needed for the universal deployment of such a vaccine by the end of 2020,” he insisted. Guterres said his appeal on March 25 for $2 billion in donations for a comprehensive UN humanitarian response to the pandemic had so far raised about 20 percent of that amount. Through the World Health Organization, the United Nations has been able to equip 47 African countries with COVID-19 tests, he said. The UN chief also praised the efforts of several African governments to mitigate the consequences of the pandemic. A COVID-19 vaccine may be the only thing that can bring back “normalcy,” UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said Wednesday, hoping for just that before the end of the year. “A safe and effective vaccine may be the only tool that can return the world to a sense of ‘normalcy,’ saving millions of lives and countless trillions of dollars,” he added during a video conference with the 50 or so African countries that are members of the United Nations.He called for its accelerated development and accessibility to all, adding it must have a “universal global benefit” and “allow us to control the pandemic.” center_img Topics :last_img read more

Midlife exercise protects heart

first_img Tweet Share Share Sharing is caring! Gardening counts as moderate exerciseMaking sure you get enough exercise in midlife will help protect your heart, according to research.Even those who make the switch in their late 40s and 50s can still benefit, the study of over 4,000 people suggests.And it need not be hard toil in a gym – gardening and brisk walks count towards the required 2.5 hours of moderate activity per week, say experts. But more work is needed since the study looked at markers linked to heart problems and not heart disease itself.And it relied on people accurately reporting how much exercise they did – something people tend to overestimate rather than underestimate.In the study, which is published in the journal Circulation, people who did the recommended 2.5 hours of exercise a week had the lower levels of inflammatory markers in their blood. Inflammatory markers are important, say experts, because high levels have been linked to increased heart risk.‘Get active’People who said they consistently stuck to the recommended amount of exercise for the entire 10-year study had the lowest inflammatory levels overall.But even those who said they only started doing the recommended amount of exercise when they were well into their 40s saw an improvement and had lower levels of inflammation than people who said they never did enough exercise.The findings were unchanged when the researchers took into consideration other factors, such as obesity and smoking, that could have influenced the results in the group of UK civil servants who were included in the study.Dr Mark Hamer, of University College London, who led the research, said: “We should be encouraging more people to get active – for example, walking instead of taking the bus. You can gain health benefits from moderate activity at any time in your life.”Maureen Talbot of the British Heart Foundation, which funded the work, said: “Donning your gardening gloves or picking up a paint brush can still go a long way to help look after your heart health, as exercise can have a big impact on how well your heart ages.“This research highlights the positive impact changing your exercise habits can have on the future of your heart health – and that it’s never too late to re-energise your life. “However it’s important not to wait until you retire to get off the couch, as being active for life is a great way to keep your heart healthy.”BBC Newscenter_img Share 8 Views   no discussions HealthLifestyle Midlife exercise protects heart by: – August 14, 2012last_img read more

Inside Arsenal star Ozil’s £10m London home with personalised doors

first_imgAdvertisement Arsenal star, Mesut Ozil, knows how to live the high life. The German playmaker, who refused to take a 12.5 per cent pay cut on his £350,000-per-week wages, resides in a stunning £10million North London home. He also commutes to and from the Gunners’ London Colney training ground in a range of high-end motors, mostly Mercedes, worth £800,000. In fact, all of the marble in the living room was shipped in from Turkey, while the home was designed by an interior designer friend. His “favourite room” feels like stepping into a bazaar in Istanbul, and is tastefully decorated. read als0:Ozil explains charity work: I earn so much, I can’t spend it all on myself Overlooking the living room is a bronze-framed painting of Ottoman Sultan, ruler of Istanbul.

Two Cook County inmates test positive for the coronavirus

first_imgHealth officials at the Cook County jail are reporting that two of it’s detainees have tested positive for the coronavirus.Both detainees were reportedly moved to the jail’s Cermak Health Services in isolation after exhibiting flu-like symptoms on March 20th.Officials say one of the sick is a 42-year-old man who was taken into custody in December of 2019 and is being under a $250,000 D-bond on charges of Aggravated DUI. The second detainee is an 18-year-old man who is being held without bond since mid-February 2020 on charges of aggravated discharge of a firearm.An officer who worked in Cermak Health Services has also tested positive for the virus and is currently at home in isolation.Cook County Public Defender Amy Campanelli told a judge Monday that the outbreak puts other inmates at risk due to the confined quarters and shared spaces.  In addition to that, Campanelli pointed out that of the jail 5,600 inmates, hundreds of them having underlying health problems.Judge Leroy Martin agreed with Campanelli but stated that instead of a mass-release of non-violent offenders, he opted for a more controlled release where teams of judges look at cases brought to them by the public defender and state’s attorney’s office. The judges then will decide if the inmate is a danger to the community, and whether that person should be released.last_img read more

C-NS boys soccer edged by B’ville; Liverpool wins twice

first_imgWest Genesee was next, and against the Wildcats on Thursday the Northstars could not do anything to contain the Wildcats, who prevailed by a 4-2 margin.Barraco earned both of the Northstars’ goals, but WG doubled that total with a well-balanced attack where four different players – Tom Shields, Jacob Sachar, Josh Rimauldo and David Puma – found the net. Wyatt Dupell finished with eight saves.The toughest game was supposed to be on Saturday night, C-NS dealing with undefeated, state Class AA no. 5-ranked Baldwinsville, where prior to the game C-NS honored long-time head coach Mike McCaffery for his 30 years coaching in the district. Tags: boys soccerC-NSliverpool The game itself did not resemble the 4-0 romp B’ville enjoyed on Sept. 3 as the Northstars twice broke through against a vaunted Bees defense, nearly halting its nine-game win streak before taking a 3-2 defeat.Kasimi and Barracco struck for goals, with Murray gaining an assist. To counter it, B’ville needed Tyler Johnson, Malik Davis and Dylan Killian to find the net, and then saw its back line withstand C-NS’s late pressure.Liverpool was 1-6 going into last Monday’s game against visiting Nottingham, but proceeded to put together its finest all-around effort of the season while earning a 4-0 victory over the Bulldogs.Leading the way, Brady Barnard picked up two goals, with Jack Pento getting the other goal. Habtamu Brown earned an assist as Dan Schaeber stopped all four shots he faced.This was the first of three consecutive games for the Warriors against city opponents. On Wednesday night, Liverpool visited Sunnycrest Field to face Henninger, where it took a 2-1 defeat to the Black Knights.Pento scored again, but Henninger countered with goals by Kandagira Miruho and Moo Hai, and overcame eight saves from Schaeber as Black Knights goalie Olivier Bienvenu recorded nine saves.A Saturday-afternoon trip to Corcoran followed and Liverpool broke out for five unanswered goals in the first half on the way to conquering the Cougars 7-1.Barnard got two goals, as did Justin Pham, with Pento, Uttam Bhattari and Faisal Samim also earning goals. Schaeber was credited with an assist, joining Barnard, Ujjwal Chhetri, Jaiden Reynolds and Zach Haggett in that column.Liverpool (3-7) went to West Genesee Tuesday and would host Faeytteville-Manlius two nights later. C-NS, at 4-6 after the close call against B’ville, was at Nottingham Tuesday and hosts Henninger Thursday night.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story center_img It hasn’t proven easy for boys soccer teams at Cicero-North Syracuse and Liverpool as both try to build their way toward peaking in October and perhaps getting into the post-season.In its first of three home games in five days, C-NS welcomed Corcoran last Tuesday night and, to some degree, broke out with its attack as it defeated the Cougars 5-1.Jawadshah Kasimi led the charge, not only scoring twice, but tacking on a pair of assists. Cole Rockwell, Tyler Murray and Joe Barraco also earned goals as Jacob Dietter got credit for an assist.last_img read more

WLAX : Syracuse offense looks to carry momentum into NCAA quarterfinals matchup with North Carolina

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ For 12 games during the middle of this season, the Syracuse offense was nearly unstoppable.But on April 27, Loyola (Md.) held SU scoreless in the final 15 minutes of their matchup. The following weekend in the Big East tournament, Syracuse scored just 14 goals in two games, eventually losing to the Greyhounds in the Big East championship to snap its 15-game winning streak.‘We definitely got caught up in a couple slumps,’ SU head coach Gary Gait said. ‘And we had to kind of fight our way out of them to get back to where we are comfortable.’That slump ended against Dartmouth in the first round of the NCAA tournament. The fourth-seeded Orange topped that two-game scoring total in a 15-5 victory over the Big Green. And with a trip to the final four on the line, SU (17-3) will try to carry that offensive momentum into Saturday’s quarterfinals matchup with No. 5 North Carolina (15-3) in the Carrier Dome at 1 p.m.The explosive Tar Heels attack could give SU problems. North Carolina ranks 18th in the nation with 13.06 goals per game with Tewaaraton Trophy finalist attack Becky Lynch leading the team’s up-tempo style of play. And last Saturday, they used that up-tempo attack to defeat Navy 14-7 in Chapel Hill, N.C. and advance to a quarterfinals matchup with the Orange.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut SU also boasts an offense that can light up the scoreboard, ranking sixth in the country with 14.9 goals per game.And the offense is clicking again after that 15-goal first round performance.‘Coming off a big second half against Dartmouth has helped us because we have started slow against a lot of teams,’ SU attack Michelle Tumolo said. ‘But knowing that we played our Syracuse lacrosse in the second Dartmouth half was a good feeling because we haven’t played that in a while.’Since the first round of the Big East tournament, the attacking midfielders have played perhaps their best three-game stretch of the season.Sarah Holden scored a team-high four goals against the Big Green and scored twice in the Big East tournament. Fellow midfielders Katie Webster and Bridget Daley have scored two and three goals respectively in the last three games as opposing defenses have packed themselves tightly inside the eight-meter arc to limit Tumolo, Alyssa Murray and the rest of Syracuse’s potent attack.‘When Michelle and Murray are getting shut off it obviously gives other people a chance to step up such as Bridget Daley and (Amy) Cross,’ Holden said. ‘We have a pretty deep bench so I think we’re all able to contribute.’The Orange is usually the team on the field trying to speed up the tempo of the game, but North Carolina also employs an aggressive attack.The SU defense will be focused on shutting down those chances for the Tar Heels.‘They’re really good in transition and it comes from mainly their attacking players and we really like to transition and it comes from our defensive players,’ Holden said. ‘So I think the game might be a little slower paced possibly lower scoring to shut down their attackers.’Lynch, the Tewaaraton finalist, leads the Tar Heels in points (61), is tied for the team lead in assists (20), and is second on the team in goals (41).Gait said the Orange will need to limit Lynch to prevent North Carolina from controlling the pace of the game.‘(We’ll) try and limit their scoring opportunities, make it count for her to get in the game,’ Gait said. ‘Try and make her rely on the other players to get the job done.’North Carolina also has a top defense supporting Lynch and the offense. The Tar Heels’ 7.17 goals allowed per game are second in the nation, so the SU attack faces a stiff challenge.Still, the Orange has torched its fair share of elite defenses this season. In two games against Dartmouth (No. 16 in goals against), SU scored 37 goals. Against Towson’s No. 9 ranked defense, Syracuse scored 18 goals. And against No. 3 Maryland’s No. 4 ranked defense, the Orange scored 10 goals on the road.SU always has the potential to make a great defense look bad. And it’s hoping its potent attack can do it again to reach the final four.‘When we get momentum going we’re able to carry it through two, three, four games and make a run with it,’ Gait said. ‘… It’s really key that we have the middies scoring, our subs, everybody. That’s why I think they all feel pretty comfortable and hopefully we can play a game with some of those non-Michelle Tumolo type players.’dbwilson@syr.educenter_img Published on May 17, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact David: dbwilson@syr.edu | @DBWilson2last_img read more

Salah’s Goal Puts Egypt on Top of Group E

first_imgIn the 19th minute, Moses Basena’s men started to come out of the blocks and nearly caught their hosts napping when a good cross from the right found Derrick Nsibambi, but his header went over Essam El-Hadary’s cross bar from close range.With three minutes to the half-hour mark, Onyango showed his class when he denied Gamal from a powerful header in the box and later blocked Raadan Sobhi’s second attempt after a great delivery from Ahmed Fathi.Both sides were stable in defence after their return from the tunnel, but Salah tried a long range effort in the 58th minute but failed to hit the target.In the group’s other game yesterday, Thomas Partey and Richmond Boakye turned on the style at the Stade Municipal de Kintélé yesterday as Ghana hammered Congo 5-1.The victory moves the Black Stars to the third position of Group E on five points.Partey bagged a hat-trick in Brazzaville to make it four in two matches against the Red Devils with Boakye grabbing a double for the rampant West Africans. Vladis-Emmerson Illoy-Ayyet scored Congo’s solitary effort.Both teams showcased early signs of urgency knowing the importance of the clash, following their 1-1 stalemate in Kumasi last Friday.Congo’s Thievy Bifouma and Césaire Gandzé testing Ricard Ofori in the 10th minute, but on both occasions the goalkeeper was well positioned to deny the hosts.Without the influential trio of Jordan Ayew, brother Andre and captain Asamoah Gyan missing the clash due to reported sickness and injury respectively – many would’ve written off Ghana’s chances, but their absence handed two rising starts the opportunity to shine.Boakye scored the game’s opener in the 23rd minute as the Serbia-based forward was left with the easiest of finishes after the ball landed fortuitously at his feet in the penalty area.Ghana doubled their lead three minutes later through Partey. A carbon-copy of the first goal, the Atletico Madrid man powered home after Boakye’s deflected effort fell into his path.Illoy-Ayyet pulled a goal back for the hosts in the 43rd minute. Unmarked at a corner-kick, the towering defender pounced to guide his header into the back of the net.Their joy, though, was short-lived as Partey restored Ghana’s two-goal lead in the second minute of added time. The midfielder guiding his shot past Barel Mouko from an acute angle following a pin-point through ball by Christian Atsu.The Red Devils tried desperately to find a way back into the game following the interval, but suffered a sucker punch in the 69th minute as Partey completed his treble. The burly playmaker charging through the heart of the Congolese defence before firing an unstoppable shot into the roof of the net.Things went from bad to worse for the hosts as Boakye completed his brace in the 85th minute. Harrison Afful’s lung-busting run down the right flank rewarded with an composed finish by the Ghanaian marksman.Defeat brings an end to Congo’s hopes of qualifying for next year’s showpiece.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram  Black Stars hammer Congo 5-1A solitary strike from Mohamed Salah handed Egypt a 1-0 win over Uganda in their fourth Group E match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers at the Borg El-Arab Stadium in Alexandria yesterday,In the wake of the victory, the Pharaohs now return to the top spot with nine points from four matches and have boosted their chances of booking a spot in Russia.With both sides chasing an early goal, it was the hosts who were quick off the mark as Salah netted from a rebound in the sixth minute after goalkeeper Denis Onyango initially denied him from close range.last_img read more
