(REUTERS/Akintunde Akinleye/File Photo)Nigerian economy at riskOfficials from the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) are heading to Lagos to help address the case, and have activated its national Emergency Operations Center.Ehanire said Nigeria was continually stepping up its preparedness to control and contain the spread of the coronavirus, which was first reported in China.The World Health Organization has said it already has experts on the ground in Nigeria, which it identifies as one of 13 “high priority” countries in Africa.In a sign of concern in Kenya, the country’s High Court ordered flights from China to be temporarily suspended on Friday. Kenya has no confirmed cases of the virus.Ehanire said China had been working closely with Nigerian authorities, and had sent a treatment guide.Nigerian stocks fell 1.63% to their lowest level in two months on Friday following the announcement of the coronavirus case.The spread of the new coronavirus from China has hit global financial markets, and Nigeria’s economy is at risk from the tumbling price of oil, which accounts for 90% of Nigeria’s foreign exchange earnings.Brent crude has shed around 13% of its value this week, and Nigeria’s currency has lost ground on the one-year forward market.Topics : The Italian, whose country has been hit worse by the virus than any other in Europe, arrived on Feb. 24 on a Turkish Airlines flight that had a connection in Istanbul, Lagos state Commissioner for Health, Professor Akin Abayomi, told a news conference.After spending the night in a hotel near the airport, he went on Feb. 25 to his place of work in neighboring Ogun state, and stayed there until he developed a fever and body aches on the afternoon of Feb. 26, Abayomi said.Health practitioners with his company then contacted biosecurity authorities who transferred him to the high containment facility in Yaba, Lagos state.”It was very astute of the medical practitioners in that facility to keep him overnight in an isolated environment,” Abayomi said. An Italian man who has been confirmed as Nigeria’s first coronavirus case after arriving from Milan was in the country for almost two full days before being isolated, traveled through Lagos and visited another state.The case has prompted a scramble by authorities in Africa’s most populous country to try to “meet and observe” all who arrived on the same flight as the Italian and to identify the places he visited before going to the hospital.”We have started working to identify all the contacts of the person since he entered Nigeria and even those who were with him on the aircraft,” Health Minister Osagie Ehanire told reporters on Friday in Nigeria’s capital, Abuja.last_img read more

Controversial brothel plan

first_imgNZ Herald 29 January 2014The cost of funerals may rise and children could be charged to camp at McLaren Falls but it will be 80 per cent cheaper to open a brothel under changes being considered by the Tauranga City Council.Elected members will debate proposed changes to user fees and charges at tomorrow’s council meeting, with council staff proposing to drop the cost of a new brothel consent application from $930 to just $210. Three-yearly renewals, which cost $700, would also be wiped completely under the plan.Mayor Stuart Crosby told the Bay of Plenty Times the brothel consent fees would be changed to better reflect the costs incurred by council.“Council tries to keep user fees and charges on actuals,” he said. “That means we charge what it actually costs us. It does not matter if it is liquor licensing, prostitution, gambling or town planning – the charges will reflect the costs to council.“In regards to the prostitution bylaw council has found very few issues when it comes to monitoring. The industry tends to look after itself and if there are any problems, they come to us. We have a lot of cooperation from that sector which has reduced the cost to council. These proposed changes reflect that. The increases are generally in line with CPI (Consumer Price Index).”Mount Maunganui Presbyterian Church Minister Ray Coster was concerned about the plan to reduce charges for brothels in the city.He said the council needed to move beyond the simple user pays model and take into account ethical considerations. “It’s very sad if things like funeral fees are going up … essential things that communities need.”The council should not be cutting fees for brothels and councillors had a duty to reflect the views of the community in its decisions, he said. read more

Ex-Eagles manager urges Ighalo to extend Man United loan stay

first_imgRead Also: Ighalo names three Man Utd stars who helped him settle“Odion has done really well since he came in and he’s enjoying himself,” Solskjaer said. “And he will improve and get better but he has qualities we saw in him and we needed and we will still need those qualities for next season, so let’s see what we will do.“He’s a goalscorer and a striker, he doesn’t worry too much about all that nonsense; build-up play – that’s a joke, obviously. He knows his job and what his role in the team is, and he’s very good with his back to goal, great link player, but maybe the best thing about him is his personality, so he’s got the whole lot really.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Ighalo is understood to be keen on making his loan move to United, from Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua, permanent. That’s after he hit the ground running under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, scoring four times in three starts before all European football was shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic. Solskjaer has hinted that United could completed a permanent deal for the 30-year-old, though United are also been touted for some big-name strikers in the transfer window.It has been suggested that Ighalo would earn more by returning to Shanghai, but Oliseh told the striker to stay at Old Trafford.“Manchester United are one of the biggest clubs in the world and Ighalo must do everything to stay at the club,” Oliseh was quoted as saying by Nigerian media.“It would be better to be remembered as an ex-Manchester United player than an ex-Watford player. Joining United is the greatest thing to happen in his life and it will help his profile even after he is no longer playing.”Interestingly, Solskjaer spoke on Ighalo’s future after United’s most recent game before the shutdown, a 5-0 Europa League victory over LASK in which the Nigerian scored a stunning goal. Former Super Eagles manager Sunday Oliseh has urged Odion Ighalo to do everything humanly possible to extend his Manchester United stay.Advertisementcenter_img Loading… Promoted Content2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This YearCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable Way6 Of The Best 90s Shows That Need To Come Back ASAP8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its Growth10 Places On Our Planet Where The Most People LiveWhat Is A Black Hole And Is It Dangerous For Us All?7 Facts About Black Holes That Will Blow Your MindWe’re Getting More Game Of Thrones: Enter House Of The Dragon!Top 10 Most Romantic Nations In The World15 Photos Of Amazingly Beautiful MutationsSome Impressive And Almost Shocking Robots That ExistBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Themlast_img read more

90 percent of Spanish referees support Real Madrid – ex-official

first_img Read Also: Goalkeeper Ter Stegen to pen long-term Barcelona contract “I am lucky to be from Bilbao and most people here support Athletic Club, but in the rest of Spain most fans support either Barcelona or Real Madrid because they are the teams that always win. “Most of them are fans of Madrid, but that does not mean they are unprofessional when the officiate their matches.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Iturralde – a confessed fan of Athletic Club Bilbao – was one of the most experienced officials in Spanish football, overseeing a total of 291 matches in La Liga. He has now come out to say that nine of every ten referees are a fan of Los Blancos, while saying that the remaining 10 percent are fans of El Clasico rivals Barcelona. Loading… Experienced former referee Eduardo Iturralde González has claimed that 90 percent of officials within the nation are fans of Real Madrid. His comments come a week on from Mark Clattenburg writing in his column for the Daily Mail, as cited by Marca, that the goal scored by Sergio Ramos in the 2016 Champions League final for Madrid against Atletico de Madrid was offside. The English official – who did not have use of VAR – was in the middle for the Madrid derby in the showpiece of the competition in Milan – two years after Los Blancos had also beaten their city rivals in the deciding game.Advertisement But Iturralde has now gone further and said that most officials in the Spanish game come from a background of supporting Madrid. “90% to 10%,” he replied on Cadena Ser, via Mundo Deportivo, when asked what percentage of Spain-based official favour Madrid over Barcelona. In 2014, on Marca TV’s Tiki Taka programme, he said: “Referees do not come from Mars, they become referees because they like football and if you like football you will support a team.

Villa win after dream Gestede debut

first_imgRudy Gestede scored 13 minutes into his Aston Villa debut to secure a 1-0 victory at newly-promoted Bournemouth. Andrew Surman’s long ball then fell to Callum Wilson on the right flank, but one-on-one with Brad Guzan he fired his shot straight at the Villa stopper’s legs. With referee Mark Clattenburg about to blow for half-time, Simon Francis headed down to Marc Pugh, but his effort from six yards was straight at Guzan. Sherwood would have been relieved to get his players in the dressing room. And not long after the re-start, the visitors finally called Boruc into action when Agbonlahor cut back for Ayew but his shot was well saved. With an hour gone Sherwood handed Gestede his debut and he immediately caused the hosts problems. And with 72 minutes gone he provided the game’s defining moment. From Westwood’s corner, the giant striker leaped highest to break Bournemouth hearts. Bournemouth searched for an equaliser but the visitors, inspired by Richards, stood their ground to seal the win. TWEET OF THE MATCH “Gestede, Prime Minister. Your new favourite player is called Gestede. Ge-ste-de.” “Excellent. And who does he play for?” – Political sketch writer Michael Deacon gives David Cameron a reminder that his favourite team won and have a new striker. PLAYER RATINGS Bournemouth Artur Boruc: 6 (out of 10) Simon Francis: 7 Steve Cook: 6 Dan Gosling: 6 Tommy Elphick: 6 Andrew Surman: 6 Marc Pugh: 7 Charlie Daniels: 6 Callum WIlson: 6 Joshua King: 7 Matt Ritchie: 8 Subs Yann Kermorgant: 6 Max Gradel: 6 Eunan O’Kane: 6 Aston Villa Brad Guzan: 6 Micah Richards: 8 Ciaran Clarke: 6 Leo Bacuna: 5 Idrissa Gueye: 6 Scott Sinclair: 7 Gabby Agbonlahor: 6 Ashley Westwood: 5 Jordan Veretout: 6 Jodran Amavi: 6 Jordan Ayew: 5 Subs Rudy Gestede: 7 Carlos Sanchez: 6 Kieran Richardson: 6 STAR PLAYER Micah Richards: Was handed the armband by Tim Sherwood and the former Manchester City defender did not disappoint. Led by example from the back, and, on this evidence, his displays will be crucial to Villa’s progress this season. MOMENT OF THE MATCH Kick-off: The players were greeted on to the pitch with fire and a huge roar from the 11,000 fans crammed into this most compact of Premier League grounds. While the football itself failed to ignite, Bournemouth’s entrance into the Premier League will be one nobody here will forget. VIEW FROM THE BENCH Tim Sherwood cut an animated figure throughout the match, spending most of the game with arms crossed or on his hips. But his decision to hand Rudy Gestede his debut on the hour mark proved to be an inspired one. MOAN OF THE MATCH Sun, sand and an historic first match in the Premier League for Bournemouth. It would be wrong of me to find anything at fault here. OK, the wifi was not great. How is that? WHO’S UP NEXT Liverpool v Bournemouth (Premier League, Saturday August 15) Aston Villa v Manchester United (Premier League, Friday August 14) Cherries boss Eddie Howe kept faith with the team which earned his side promotion to the big time with Josh King, a free signing from Blackburn, and goalkeeper Artur Bortuc the only fresh faces in his line-up. Veteran defender Sylvain Distin had to make do with a place on the bench. For Aston Villa, without captain Fabian Delph, now of Manchester City, and Christian Benteke, who joined Liverpool in a £32.5milllion deal, boss Tim Sherwood blooded six new signings. Micah Richards, the club’s new captain, partnered Ciaran Clark in the heart of Villa’s defence while Idrissa Gueye and Scott Sinclair, now a permanent player following his loan spell from Manchester City, also started for the visitors. Jordan Veretout, Jordan Amavi and Jordan Ayew were also handed their Villa bows. Bournemouth emerged to Queen anthem ‘We Will Rock You’ in this most historic of matches, and the hosts did not let their supporters down, dominating the opening 45 minutes. Sherwood, with his sleeves rolled up and marauding the touchline looked ready for battle, but his players appeared more suited for an afternoon on the beach – a stone’s throw from the Vitality Stadium. The visitors were sloppy in possession and failed to carry any threat going forward. Indeed Gabby Agbonlahor, leading the line in Benteke’s absence touched the ball on just four occasions in the opening 30 minutes. Bournemouth had three good chances to open their Barclays Premier League account and complete a remarkable fairytale story. The first fell to Dan Gosling with just nine minutes of the half remaining. Richards, in an otherwise impressive debut, was caught on the ball, but Gosling blazed over from 10 yards. The 6ft 4ins striker, a £6million summer arrival from Blackburn, thumped home a header from an Ashley Westwood corner after coming on as a second-half substitute. Bournemouth, making their first top-flight appearance in English football, dominated for large spells but spurned a number of good opportunities against a largely lacklustre Villa side.

Beaches in Palm Beach County to reopen next week with no restrictions

first_imgCommissioners in Palm Beach County have voted to reopen beaches to the public on Monday.The vote was finalized after a four hour sometimes passionate session on Friday.Five members voted for the change while two did not think it was a good idea.Commissioners also voted not impose any restrictions on guest visiting the beaches including restricting the beaches to residents.Officials originally wanted to restrict access to residents only, however, an attorney advised the group to reconsider that restriction due to grants that are being applied to the county.As far as social distancing goes, Commissioner Robert Weinroth said the county would have to rely on the public to be mature and responsible, in response to the claim that lifeguards and other county officials would not be able to do their daily task and enforce social distancing.last_img read more

Wittek’s transfer derailed by ineligibility

first_imgRedshirt junior quarterback Max Wittek intended to use his final two years of Football Bowl Subdivision eligibility as a college football player at a school other than USC, but failed to graduate this past spring, narrowing his window of opportunity to play in the fall.After losing out to the Trojan’s current starting quarterback redshirt junior Cody Kessler in the Trojans’ 2013 campaign and not getting much playing time in 2014, Wittek made the decision to graduate with his degree and play his final two years of college football elsewhere.Instead of graduating this past spring, however, Wittek will be graduating in December, which means that he will not be eligible to play in the fall at an FBS school and will be required to sit out a year per NCAA transfer rules. This will give Wittek only one year of remaining eligibility. Head coach Charlie Strong and Texas had halted their plans to bring in Wittek for an undisclosed reason earlier, though the reason can now be presumed to be Wittek’s eligibility to play in the fall.If Wittek elected to drop down a level and transfer to a Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) school, he would keep two years of eligibility.The 6-foot-4, 235 pound quarterback got his first opportunity for a start when former USC quarterback Matt Barkley dislocated his shoulder in the penultimate regular season game against UCLA in 2012.Wittek will be most widely remembered by fans for guaranteeing a victory in that first start against the then-No. 1 Fighting Irish, and his failure to lead an offense stocked with talented offensive weapons to victory against Georgia Tech in the 2012 Sun Bowl. Windy conditions prevailed in El Paso and the Trojan offense was impotent with Wittek under center, with the quarterback completing a mere 14 of his 37 passes for 107 yards, USC’s lone touchdown, and three interceptions.Like Barkley, Wittek was highly recruited out of Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, California. The Contra Costa, California native grew up with former USC running back Silas Redd in Norwalk, Connecticut before moving back to California to play quarterback at Mater Dei. Other FBS schools who could potentially be in the market for Wittek’s services regardless of his lone year of remaining eligibility include Louisville and Pittsburgh.last_img read more
