WHO says no return to normality for ‘foreseeable future’

first_imgThe World Health Organization warned Monday that there could be no return to normality any time soon as too many countries were bungling their response to the coronavirus pandemic.After a daily record of 230,000 new cases of COVID-19 were reported to the WHO on Sunday, the UN health agency said the pandemic was only going to get worse unless people stuck to the basics of physical distancing, handwashing and wearing masks.WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus warned that countries that were easing their way out of lockdowns were now witnessing a resurgence of the virus because they were not following proven methods to reduce risk. If governments do not roll out a comprehensive strategy to suppress transmission of the virus, and if populations do not follow basic public health principles, “there is only one way this pandemic is going to go,” he said.”It’s going to get worse and worse and worse.”The novel coronavirus has killed nearly 570,000 people and infected more than 12.9 million since the outbreak emerged in China last December, according to a tally from official sources compiled by AFP.”Although the number of daily deaths remains relatively stable, there is a lot to be concerned about,” said Tedros.He said there were four scenarios playing out around the world.They were: countries that were alert and avoided large outbreaks, those that got a major outbreak under control, those that eased restrictions but are now backsliding, and those that are in an intense transmission phase.Tedros said the epicenter of the virus remains the Americas.Topics : “I want to be straight with you: there will be no return to the ‘old normal’ for the foreseeable future,” Tedros told a virtual news briefing.”Let me blunt: too many countries are headed in the wrong direction.”The virus remains public enemy number one, but the actions of many governments and people do not reflect this.”He said mixed messages from leaders were undermining trust.last_img read more

Syracuse redshirt freshman center Obokoh loses year of eligibility

first_img Published on April 9, 2014 at 6:59 pm Contact Trevor: | @TrevorHass Syracuse redshirt freshman center Chinonso Obokoh has lost a year of eligiblity, SU Athletics spokesman Pete Moore confirmed to The Daily Orange in a text message Wednesday. Obokoh redshirted this year and did not play in a game, but will have three years of eligibility left starting next season, not four.The Post-Standard reported Obokoh lost a year of eligibility at SU “because the NCAA ruled that his Rochester high school improperly classified him as a student when he arrived from Nigeria.”Christopher Radford, the NCAA’s associate director of public and media relations, said in an email Thursday morning that the NCAA Eligibility Center reviews transcripts of international prospective student-athletes to ensure the student-athlete has graduated with the appropriate high school class. Radford said any time spent competing in athletics beyond that time, prior to college enrollment, can be subtracted from NCAA eligibility. He would not specify on Obokoh’s specific case. Former Bishop Kearney High School head coach Jon Boon adamantly denied Bishop Kearney’s connection to Obokoh losing a year.“This is the NCAA,” Boon said. “This has nothing to do with us. Ask the NCAA for their policy on Nigeria. I’ll save you a phone call. They don’t have one.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBoon said Obokoh came to Bishop Kearney from Nigeria in 2010. He said Obokoh sat out his freshman year because he came to the school after the start of basketball season, and that Obokoh then played for Bishop Kearney his sophomore, junior and senior seasons.Boon said Bishop Kearney was never contacted about the potential loss in eligibility at SU, and insisted Obokoh did not stay back a year in high school.“Here’s a kid who does everything he’s supposed to do, and they punish him,” Boon said. “Then you have all these idiots that go to 15-passenger van schools where they don’t even take the classes.“If they’re really going to do something like this, then it’s a joke. Like I said, we did nothing wrong at the school.”Boon said he hasn’t spoken with SU coaches Jim Boeheim or Mike Hopkins since Obokoh signed to play for SU last October, and he hasn’t spoken with anyone from the NCAA about Obokoh losing a year of eligibility.He said Obokoh finished with close to a 2.5 GPA in high school, took 16 core credits and earned his diploma. Boon said age is not an issue. Boon checked carefully to make sure Obokoh was the correct age for a freshman when he came over, and confirmed he wasn’t too old at the time.But now it appears that may not have been enough.“You’re talking about the NCAA,” Boon said. “They’re not consistent about anything. They just make up sh*t as they go.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Bleach: Ones v. ones may not be the best idea

first_imgAs one of the proud and shiny faces of Wisconsin athletics, football coach Bret Bielema needs to successfully juggle many roles.First and foremost, he is a football coach who seems to be maturing and improving, and has a Big Ten title under his belt. His recruiting classes have grown in prestige almost every year. He is an excellent spokesperson for Chevy trucks – pick one up today – and he has continued the proud tradition of football coaches mangling the English language.*Bielema on an injured player: “He has got a bit of a groin.”But one role Bielema has yet to master is judging the public reaction to his less-than-conventional moves. He experienced this last season when he was accused on multiple occasions of running up the score against Minnesota and Indiana.Now, in both situations the criticism was pretty weak. If you can’t stop Nate Tice from scoring on a naked bootleg you deserve to have the score run up all over you.It wasn’t that Bielema made the wrong move, however; it was that Bielema seemed surprised that it was even an issue when Minnesota coach Tim Brewster and the media brought it up after the game.And there is a good chance Bielema will be in for the same type of surprise after the spring football game Saturday.(Editor’s Note: As all opinions of spring football must be legally prefaced, we must note here that spring football is a bare bones excuse for a complicated game and any results must be taken with a Rob Havenstein grain of salt.)This season, Bielema decided to please both the fans and media alike by pitting the No. 1 offense against the No. 1 defense in the spring scrimmage. The UW Nursing School will rejoice for the added revenue that comes with a scrimmage worth watching, while the fans will actually have a reason to go besides copious amounts of day drinking (though, c’mon, that should be reason enough).Of course, the issue with pitting ones on ones – and why very few college coaches do it in the spring – is that someone is coming out as the loser. Both sides cannot shine, though if the game is full of mistakes, both offense and defense can manage to look meager.And the bet here is it will be quarterback Jon Budmayr coming out with question marks next to his name.The sophomore quarterback, who has had all the reps with the ones this spring as Curt Phillips is still recovering from a torn ACL, has looked anything but dominant in practices open to the media. The two issues that have plagued Budmayr’s reputation – sloppy turnovers and batted passes at the line – have been out in full force.And with the quarterback position wide open, he will be under an even more powerful microscope during the game.From the first interception or overthrown open receiver, the value Scott Tolzien provided last season will become all the more apparent. As one of the departing seniors told The Badger Herald sports crew: “They are going to miss that fucking guy like none other. He was the only player we could not afford to lose last year.”Bielema should do Budmayr the favor of letting him throw against the likes of raw freshmen and sophomores rather than pitting him against Antonio Fenelus and Aaron Henry. Because if the practices this spring have been any type of precursor, one of those two will be embarrassing Budmayr come Saturday.Scrimmaging the best against the best might be the best entertainment value, but it is not what is best for Bielema’s team. Someone, and likely Budmayr, will be hearing not-so-subtle doubts about his readiness for five months before the team meets again for fall camp.The fans paying $5 to attend Camp Randall Saturday appreciate the gesture of what Bielema has done. The ones v. ones will make for a better game and more interesting analysis.But Bielema really doesn’t need to help the entertainment value – the day drinking should be plenty.Michael is a senior majoring in journalism.

Fast reaction: 3 takeaways from Syracuse’s 85-70 loss to Boston College

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. — Syracuse (18-12, 7-10 Atlantic Coast) lost its third-straight game, this time to Boston College (17-13, 7-10), 85-70, at Conte Forum on Wednesday night. The Eagles held the lead for nearly the entire night. The Orange made a run late in the first half to cut a double-digit deficit to three entering the break. But BC pulled away in the second half for a comfortable victory.Syracuse’s season seemed on the upswing after upsetting Miami at home a week and a half ago. Now, after this loss, Syracuse’s chances of making the NCAA Tournament are down to 17 percent, per ESPN’s BPI.Here are reactions from the game.Where’s the help?Last time these two teams matched up, Syracuse exploded for 81 points. It was a balanced attack that day for the Orange, as all five players scored in double figures.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe first half for Syracuse on Wednesday was completely different. While SU trailed by three at the half and scored 37 points in the frame, only three players — Tyus Battle, Frank Howard and Oshae Brissett — scored for the team. Battle led the way with 20 points in the half.Despite the high scoring output, Syracuse often found itself in predictable sets in the half court game, while the big three faced consistent double teams. The Orange’s best offense came off turnovers — SU got nine points off turnovers in the first half — and in semi-transition opportunities.By the end of the game, only six points — four from Paschal Chukwu and two from Matthew Moyer — were scored by someone other than a member of SU’s big three. Battle, Brissett and Howard also combined to take 46 of the Orange’s 50 shot attempts.Boston three partyComing into the game, Boston College ranked sixth in the ACC in 3-pointers made but only 11th in 3-point percentage. The Eagles did have three players — Ky Bowman, Jerome Robinson and Jordan Chatman — who averaged more than two 3-pointers made per game.BC took a lot of 3s against the Orange, like it always does. On Wednesday it made a lot of them, too. The Eagles finished 14-of-27 from deep, with the three aforementioned sharpshooters going a combined 13-for-26. In two games this season, the Eagles have shot 50 percent (25-of-50) from behind the arc against SU.Many of the looks came off picture-perfect zone breakdown, as the Eagles had no issue feeding the posts and then kicking it out to an open shooter as the Orange failed to rotate.Press onSyracuse has shown that it will frequently turn to the press to try and speed the game up when it’s down late. Against UNC one week ago, the Orange used it to rally and tie the game with two minutes to go.The press didn’t necessarily work in that game, as the Tar Heels consistently got the ball past half court quickly. But they’d charge straight at Paschal Chukwu under the bucket and force up wild shots in the process, allowing SU to get the ball back quickly.Down by 12 with seven minutes left, the Orange once again turned to the press. And much like North Carolina, Boston College consistently got the ball down the court. Every time the Eagles players would step inside the 3-point line, though, they’d turn around and dribble the ball back up. This allowed the Eagles to set up its halfcourt offense — which was torching Syracuse all night to begin with — and slowly take some time off the clock.
