US passes 120,000 virus deaths: Johns Hopkins

first_imgMany states have largely lifted lockdown measures, and New York — the country’s epicenter for the pandemic — took a big step Monday by allowing non-essential businesses to reopen.But some 20 states, primarily in the south and west, have seen a rebound in infections.Among them, Florida passed 100,000 cases, of which nearly 3,000 were diagnosed on Monday alone, according to local health officials.President Donald Trump said Monday that the virus death toll in the US could surpass 150,000, though he insisted that two to four million lives would have been lost if the country had not taken steps to slow the spread of the disease. The United States on Monday passed the grim benchmark of 120,000 deaths from the coronavirus outbreak when it added another 425 fatalities in 24 hours, the Johns Hopkins University tally showed.The world’s largest economy is the hardest-hit country by the pandemic, with more than 2.31 million official cases — out of which about 640,000 people have fully recovered, according to the Baltimore-based institution at 8:30pm (0030 GMT Tuesday).The previous day’s toll of 305 deaths in 24 hours was one of the lowest in months, but numbers have tended to be lower during the weekend and just after, depending on the feedback from local health authorities.

Runarsson joins Arsenal on four-year deal

first_imgRelatedPosts Arsenal, Wolves want Michael Olise Akpom pens Middlesbrough loan deal EPL: Gunners gun for West Ham scalp Arsenal have signed goalkeeper Alex Runarsson on a four-year contract from Ligue 1 club Dijon.Runarsson will wear the number 13 shirt and is expected to deputise for first-choice goalkeeper Bernd Leno, replacing Emiliano Martinez who left Arsenal for Aston Villa in a deal worth £17 million.

We have been monitoring him for some time and from the analysis, he has strong attributes that we look for in a goalkeeper and as a person.” Mikel Arteta added: “We want to create healthy competition for places and we look forward to seeing Alex bring further depth to the goalkeeping position.”Brentford goalkeeper David Raya was another option for Arsenal but the Championship club are refusing to sell any member of their squad other than Ollie Watkins, who joined Villa, and Said Benrahma.—Tags: Alex RunarssonArsenalAston VillaBernd LenoEmiliano Martinezlast_img read more

Moyes awed by United achievements

first_img Press Association Even David Moyes gets taken aback sometimes when reminded of the legacy he has to live up to as Manchester United’s new manager. It is the standard by which Moyes is going to be judged as he tries to hold off the threat of Chelsea and Manchester City. “It was the first time I had seen those clips myself and I thought ‘wow’,” said Moyes. “I was very fortunate to get a great grounding at Everton. “But I have now come to the biggest club in the world. Sir Alex (Ferguson) has left me a winning team. I am taking over the champions of England. “The job now is to try and do what you saw in all those clips. The history of this football club is incredible. “I have a great chance to build on that and try and get a little bit more over the coming seasons.” It is United’s first visit to Australia since 1999 and the measure of their standing in this part of the world is seen in the number of fans who have been waiting for autographs outside the team hotel. “I have been overwhelmed already,” said Moyes. “We dropped into Thailand on the way to Sydney and everywhere you go with Manchester United, everyone wants to meet the players. It is a fantastic football club.” center_img Moyes was one of the chief guests at a high-profile lunch in Sydney, arranged with the business community as part of United’s stay in the city. Prior to answering admittedly less taxing questions about his job, Moyes watched a montage of United’s performances last season, which ended with them winning the Premier League title with four games to spare and by an eventual margin of 11 points. last_img read more

Suarez shines in Liverpool win

first_imgStriker Luis Suarez continued his incredible run of form with two more goals to fire Liverpool to the top of the table and make Cardiff manager Malky Mackay’s position even more difficult – if that was at all possible. The Uruguay international, who caught everyone by surprise by signing a new long-term contract on Friday, made it 19 for the season as Cardiff were despatched 3-1. Raheem Sterling was also on the scoresheet in between Suarez’s two brilliant strikes and although Jordon Mutch’s reply just before the hour breathed new life into Cardiff, the home side’s grip on the three points was not to be loosened. In truth the result made little difference to Mackay’s future, which appears to have already been pre-determined by Vincent Tan. The owner was present at Anfield to see his side torn apart in the first half. How much longer Mackay lasts may be assessed in terms of hours rather than days – having been told by Tan earlier in the week to resign or be sacked – but what is enduring are Liverpool’s title challenge credentials. Fuelled by Suarez’s goals they have now overtaken long-time leaders Arsenal, who face fellow top-four side Chelsea on Monday, and with the season almost halfway through must now be classed as credible rivals to the favoured front-runners in the Gunners, Manchester City and Chelsea. Brendan Rodgers’ side must face both the latter in their next two matches but with Suarez in the form he is they can go into the games with confidence. The figures are staggering – and that is not a reference to the reported £200,000-a-week the striker will receive from next season as a result of his new deal. He has 19 in 12 league matches, including 10 in his last four games, and he set a Premier League record with his first goal – which was his ninth in December, outstripping the previous best in a single month. It was the purest example of a striker at his best – but also showed there is more to him than just goals. Having initially begun the move he continued his run towards the penalty area where Jordan Henderson picked him out with an inviting cross which was expertly volleyed past goalkeeper David Marshall. That maintained his record of scoring in every home match – six in total – he has been available for this season, having been suspended early on. In doing so be became the first player since Fernando Torres (who scored in eight) in May 2008 to achieve that feat. Cue the inevitable Liverpool onslaught which saw Martin Skrtel head over, Sterling have a shot blocked and Jon Flanagan and Philippe Coutinho both hit the post – the latter’s effort only just kept out by the outstretched boot of Marshall. It seemed despite Liverpool’s dominance their lead would be a slender one at half-time but three minutes before the break they struck again, thanks to their two best players in recent weeks. Henderson’s through-ball was superb in itself but no surprise considering his improved quality this season. What was a shock was the sight of Suarez, with only Marshall to beat, squaring the ball for Sterling to slot home. Suarez’s second of the game highlighted exactly what that sort of investment brings. Henderson’s backheel was all the invitation the Uruguayan needed as he opened his body to curl a shot around a pack of bodies in the penalty area and inside Marshall’s left-hand post. The second half should have been a procession for the home side but that was interrupted by Mutch’s unchallenged header from a free-kick in the 58th minute. Cardiff subsequently enjoyed their best spell of the game but that was ended when Sterling forced Marshall to save in a one-on-one and Suarez followed up to blast a shot against the post. The win means Liverpool could still be top for Christmas should Arsenal fail to win on Monday and that would be the first time that has happened since 2008. The last four champions have all been top on Christmas Day. It may still be wishful thinking for Rodgers, who claims he will only consider their chances with 10 games to go, but with Suarez in current form he may have to reassess that sooner rather than later.

Paduda outperforms elite faceoff specialist Knarr at X, earns Syracuse critical possessions

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 20, 2013 at 7:09 pm Contact Jacob: jmklinge@syr.edu | @Jacob_Klinger_ WASHINGTON –Cal Paduda and Chris Daddio held their own against a faceoff specialist ranked among the top 10 in the country.Syracuse won 9-of-20 faceoffs and held the ball for crucial stretches as the freshman Paduda battled Georgetown’s Tyler Knarr. Daddio chipped in, taking 1-of-3 to break up the GU specialists’ momentum and swapped notes with Paduda as SU fought to a team-wide 45-percent performance at the X.Paduda went toe-to-toe with one of the nation’s best, a long-pole too, but had ample help from wings like Matt Harris and Steve Ianzito.“Watching him on film he’s actually pretty quick too,” Paduda said. “So it was definitely an awesome and unique experience to go against a long pole who has some tendencies of a short-pole FOGO … but all the credit goes to our wings, they were great today.”While Paduda won five ground balls on his own, Harris won four and Ianzito chipped in two. Paduda’s grinding style prolonged the duels for possession – only truly struggling when Knarr pinned Paduda’s stick.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textPaduda, Daddio and faceoffs coach Lelan Rogers talked about ways to leverage against Knarr’s long pole. Knarr displayed an instinctive anticipation of the whistle at times though – and SU had no answer for it.“On the one that he beat Daddio cleanly was he just got a good read on the whistle and there’s no defense for that,” Paduda said.Fatigue delayed SU’s control of the game, taxing Syracuse’s wings and the whole team. But Paduda’s ability to delay Knarr’s rushing style at the X gave SU enough opportunities to ultimately bury the Hoyas.Said defender Brian Megill: “It’s great when we can score and have almost a 60-40 chance at the faceoff.” Commentslast_img read more

Syracuse pulls out 55-53 win over Michigan State to move on to Sweet 16

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 18, 2018 at 5:28 pm Contact Tomer: tdlanger@syr.edu | @tomer_langercenter_img DETROIT — It seemed like the end. Frank Howard walked down the court with his hands on his head as head coach Jim Boeheim verbally attacked any referee who would listen.Syracuse was down four against a team that had lost just four times all year. A team it couldn’t take the lead over for much of the afternoon. And now, it had to play without the last six and a half minutes without its 40-minute point guard, in an arena that was mostly pro-Michigan State, creating a quasi-road game.None of that mattered. In miraculous fashion, No. 11 seed Syracuse (23-13, 8-10 Atlantic Coast) defeated No. 3 seed Michigan State (30-5, 16-2 Big Ten), 55-53, on Sunday afternoon in Little Caesars Arena, once again on the back of its stellar defense. The Orange moves on to the Sweet 16, where it’ll have a matchup with No. 2 seed Duke.“It’s just the heart of this team,” sophomore guard Tyus Battle said. “It’s amazing.”For the third time in five days, the Orange held a high-powered offense to less than 60 points. For the third time in five days, there were moments when it seemed like neither team would score. And again, for the third time in five days, Syracuse won.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“These guys just keep going, they keep battling,” Boeheim said. “Frank fouls out, it doesn’t faze them. They just keep going.”Teams and players evolve throughout a season. Guard Geno Thorpe decided to leave the team and Howard Washington went down with an injury. Marek Dolezaj transformed from glue guy off the bench to starter who led SU in scoring in the Round of 64. At the beginning of the year, head coach Jim Boeheim constantly lamented Oshae Brissett’s shot selection. In March, Brissett was the go-to scorer down the stretch.But Syracuse’s style and game flow stayed the same throughout. The Orange was constantly stuck in close games. It could never fully pull away from weaker teams, like Iona to start the season or Pittsburgh twice in the ACC, despite winning those games. It hung around at Virginia and at home with North Carolina, but couldn’t get over the hump to beat either of those teams.And despite March being college basketball’s most unpredictable stretch, things weren’t going to change. Syracuse won its first two NCAA Tournament games, against Arizona State and TCU, by nine points combined. There wasn’t a double-digit lead held by any of the teams in either of the games. The Orange scratched and clawed for points, suffocated its opponents defensively and scraped by with wins.Those teams were good teams, comparable to Syracuse. Michigan State was like Duke, Virginia and North Carolina — a Top 10 team in both the AP polls and in Kenpom.com’s season rankings that was sitting on the same hump that the Orange just couldn’t get over.“We’ve just been fighting an entire year,” Battle said. “We’re constantly trying to prove ourselves in this Tournament.”Katie Czerwinski | Digital Design EditorHoward’s departure all happened quickly — he picked up back-to-back foul calls on rebounds, and then a few minutes later, picked up two more back-to-back fouls and was disqualified.Off the bench hopped Braedon Bayer, playing his first significant minutes in about a month. Syracuse still hadn’t led once in the second half. It faced the daunting task of reclaiming it with a former walk-on in place of one of its big three.The Orange refused to let that have an effect, instead doubling down on the grind-it-out approach it used all season. It kept the clamps on Michigan State, giving up just one field goal after Howard’s departure.“We just kept battling,” Howard said. “We knew they were going to punch us in the side a lot … we just fought down the stretch and we came up when we needed to.”The Spartans out-rebounded the Orange by 21. Syracuse had to fight for every possession it did get, like when Oshae Brissett skied up to try and get a defensive rebound over two MSU players, fell out of bounds and threw it off a player’s legs.Slowly, Syracuse managed to close the gap. Bourama Sidibe and Marek Dolezaj got fouled jockeying for position on the glass and made four-of-six between the two of them. Battle added two more from the line. Brissett threw in an acrobatic layup that rattled the rim before falling.None of this was all that new, though. The Orange had hung with the titans of college basketball.This game was different. Battle, who had struggled all night, knocked down a jumper from the free-throw line with 47 seconds left. The two teams exchanged free throws, but MSU couldn’t make shots in the face of Syracuse’s stingy zone.“We’ve got a lot of fighters and a lot of talent,” Howard said, “… and with that combination, I think we can come up with some wins.”The Orange did the same thing it’s done in nearly every game this season. The same thing it did against Toledo and the same thing it did against Kansas.On Sunday, for the first time in its most important contest, Syracuse did something different: It slayed a giant.last_img read more

Rohr Advises Iheanacho to Leave Man City

first_imgIheanacho was a shadow of himself in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa on June 10 in Uyo.His lack of impact was apparently an outcome of his lack of regular playing time at City in the English Premier League.The 20- year-old forward strolled the pack against the Bafana Bafana and he let out frustration at the Eagles bench when he was substituted late into the match which Nigeria lost 2-0.But information at our disposal last night, revealed that Rohr attributed non-fitness of some of his players as reason for the defeat to South Africa.The coach, who maintained an unbeaten run in six matches before the meltdown in Uyo, made this startling assessment at a meeting with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Technical Committee last week.We gathered that Rohr admitted that failure of Alex Iwobi of Arsenal and Iheanacho to click and dominate, arose from irregular playing time at their respective clubs in England.Iheanacho made the headlines in his first season at Man City under coach Manuel Pellegrino as a goal scoring super sub and a teen sensation.But strangely, he spent more time on the bench last year after the Chilean departed and Pep Guardiola became the manager at Etihad Stadium.The Spaniard rated Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero ahead of Iheanacho in the first team.Though there have been reports linking Iheanacho with possible transfer to West Ham, Leicester, Crystal Palace and Newcastle, the former U-17 star has insisted on fighting for his position at Man City next season.But Rohr has cautioned that he has become redundant at Man City and should consider the option of a transfer or a season long loan to knock him back into shape.The coach voiced concern that Iheanacho’s lack of match fitness was not in the national team interest ahead of the Russia 2018 World Cup qualifying matches against Cameroon in August and September.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Olawale Ajimotokan in AbujaSuper Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has advised Kelechi Iheanacho to leave Manchester City this Summer in order to be assured of regular playing time.last_img read more
