According to the hospital spokesperson, Handry Takasenseran, besides COVID-19, the baby also suffered from tuberculosis and malnutrition.Handry said that the medical staff had tried their best to save the baby, but unfortunately his condition kept deteriorating, leading to his death on Sunday morning.“The death is most likely a result of his other conditions,” Handry said. He confirmed the death of the baby on Sunday at 8.52 a.m. local time.According to the government’s official count, North Sulawesi had 116 confirmed COVID-19 cases with seven deaths as of Monday. The province has also recorded 109 deaths of people suspected to have COVID-19. A 22-month-old baby boy who tested positive for COVID-19 has died in Manado, North Sulawesi, the province’s COVID-19 task force announced on Monday.“Case 93, a baby from Manado has died, making it a total of seven COVID-19 related deaths in North Sulawesi so far,” task force spokesperson Steaven Dandel Steaven said on Monday.Steaven added that the baby had been receiving treatment in the isolation ward at Kandou State Hospital in Manado since the beginning of May. While the elderly have a higher risk of dying from COVID-19, data from the national COVID-19 task force also showed those aged 0 to 5 years old made up 0.74 percent of the country’s COVID-19 death toll. The age group also accounts for 1.7 percent of total COVID-19 infections as of Monday.Previously, an 11-year-old girl who died at the Slamet Martodirdjo Hospital in Pamekasan in Madura Island in East Java on March 20 was confirmed as the country’s youngest COVID-19 death.When asked whether the baby boy in Manado was now the country’s youngest COVID-19 related death, Health Ministry Disease Control and Prevention Director General Achmad Yurianto told The Jakarta Post that he had not received confirmation of the case and referred the Post to the health services directorate-general.Health Services Director General Bambang Wibowo, however, did not immediately respond to the Post’s questions on the matter.Topics :
‘Questionable conduct’ Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez suggested that King Felipe VI had decided that his father should go into exile.Asked at a press conference Tuesday about Juan Carlos’s move abroad, Sanchez said he “completely respected the decision of the royal palace to distance itself from the questionable and reprehensible conduct” of a member of the royal family.The former monarch did not mention in his letter where he would go, but Spanish media said he was in the Dominican Republic staying with friends for now.His wife Sofia is still in Spain, a source close to the royal palace told AFP. The couple have reportedly long been estranged.The ex-king’s lawyer, Javier Sanchez-Junco, said his client would remain available to prosecutors.Felipe VI’s biographer, Jose Apezarena, said the move abroad would “not change anything” for Juan Carlos but would make a difference to his son.Juan Carlos will be “gone for a while but he will not stay forever abroad” and will return to Spain if summoned for questioning, he added.”He is doing it for his son, not for himself,” Apezarena said.Juan Carlos ascended the throne in 1975 on the death of the fascist dictator Francisco Franco.He ruled for 38 years before abdicating in favor of his son Felipe VI in June 2014, following a steady flow of embarrassing press reports about his lifestyle and personal wealth.For years though, he was a popular figure for decades, playing a key role in the democratic transition from the Franco dictatorship which ruled Spain from 1939-1975. Spaniards were divided Tuesday as to whether former king Juan Carlos, who is under investigation for corruption, is trying to escape responsibility for his actions by moving abroad.Some analysts said the 82-year-old, who has not been charged, did not have much choice even if his departure was poorly received by the public.According to an online poll carried out by conservative and pro-monarchy daily newspaper ABC, fully 68 percent of Spaniards think Juan Carlos made the wrong decision. ‘Kicked out’ The former head of state has been under a cloud since news reports from several sources that he had allegedly received funds from Saudi Arabia. Investigations are now under way in both Switzerland and Spain.In June, Spain’s Supreme Court announced an investigation to determine the legal responsibility of the ex-monarch — but only for acts committed after his abdication in 2014, because of the immunity he holds. The suspicions center on $100 million (85 million euros) allegedly paid secretly into a Swiss bank account in 2008.Several analysts said the former king had not fled, as anti-monarchists argue, but was in exile.”It’s an involuntary departure,” said Paloma Roman, politics professor at Madrid’s Complutense University.Juan Carlos had been pressured to leave by “the government and his own son”, she said.”Felipe has always tried to soften the blows” against the monarchy as it has been rocked by a series of scandals, she added.Earlier this year the king withdrew his father’s an annual royal allowance of nearly 200,000 euros and renounced his inheritance.”This is not a king who is fleeing, this is a king that is being kicked out,” said Abel Hernandez, a journalist who was written several books about Juan Carlos.Juan Carlos is “leaving to prevent his problems from contaminating the institution”, he added. “He should have stayed, it’s a bit shameful that he left,” said Aranzazu Catalina, a 43-year-old sales assistant at a high-end clothing shop in Madrid, a day after the ex-king made his surprise announcement that he would quit Spain.Juan Carlos announced the move Monday in a letter addressed to King Felipe VI, his son and Spain’s current monarch, which was released by the royal palace.He said the move would help his son “exercise his responsibilities” in the face of “the public consequences of certain past events in my private life”.

7 Views no discussions Share LocalNews It is unfortunate that the Opposition does not sit in Parliament by: – September 1, 2011 Sharing is caring! Share Tweet Share Dr. John Colin McIntyreMinister responsible for the portfolios of Employment, Trade, Industry and Diaspora Affairs Dr. John Colin McIntyre believes it is unfortunate that the Opposition Party does not sit in Parliament.Dr. McIntyre who addressed members of the media yesterday says, while this action may benefit the government, it is a bad move which will affect the country.“It is unfortunate that we have an Opposition that does not sit in Parliament. They have no say, there is no interest, there’s no representation to the people, they are just totally not interested in Dominica or the people of Dominica. I mean no Opposition is good for a government to a certain extent but it is bad for the country. It is bad for the country in that you expect to get some form of input from the Opposition in terms of looking at programs as well to form a national point of view in pushing this country forward. When you have an Opposition that seat out completely with no say, with lack of representation to their own people, though it is a slim margin I must admit, there is no direction.”The Minister explained that irrespective of which party is in power the national program and plan should continue.“I want to enforce here right now that irrespective of which government is in power, we have to look at the national program and continuity. We cannot say that because one time it was the Freedom Government, one time it was the UWP for a very, very short time I remember that very well and now that you have the Labour Party in government; for a reasonable time now and to be honest with you for a long enough time as well, we must continue the program and I speak here of the national program for Dominica. It cannot be the Freedom Party was in power they had this program, the UWP got into power the program should be changed, the Labour Party is in power right now so the program should be changed? No, it should be a continuation of the plan,” he said.According to Dr. McIntyre a proper national plan should continue whether the government which initiated it remains in office or not.He noted however that for continuity to take place this would require the input from a functional opposition party which is sadly lacking in Dominica.“What would be ideal to balance this whole program is a program where you have a functional opposition but in Dominica’s case we don’t have that and it is sad for the country,” he said.This decision to abstain from the Parliament Dr. McIntyre thinks will “just help to strengthen government’s role and maintenance of this Labour Party in power for a very, very long time.”Dominica Vibes News

The risk of some domestic divisions starting and finishing earlier or some national leagues having a different start date to other countries is also tackled in the document. “In case of overlapping seasons and/or registration periods, and unless all parties agree otherwise, priority be given to the former club to complete their season with their original squad, in order to safeguard the integrity of a domestic league championship”. Transfer payments between clubs, scheduled around league start and end dates should also be delayed until the new start date of a season or its first registration period, the document states. The working group will also examine the issue of clubs’ responsibilities to pay their staff when leagues are suspended. The document states that clubs, players and coaches should be encouraged to work together to agree on salary reductions and deferrals. Yet they should consider the alternative, where possible, that agreements between clubs and employees are suspended when teams are not playing or training. It is also recommended that Fifa uses its newly-created ‘Fund for Professional Players’ to help ease any difficulties that clubs are facing. Read Also:FIFA joins COVID-19 fight, pledges $10m Transfer windows, fixed around the end and start of the seasons, will also need to be adjusted to fit in with altered season dates and the document suggests such changes should be allowed, so long as they do not exceed the maximum 16-week period. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… The confidential document, seen by Reuters, also recommends allowing transfer windows to be changed in accordance with new season dates and urges clubs and players to work together to find solutions to salary payments during stoppages. The document is due to be discussed by members of Fifa’s Working Group later on Thursday. No decision on the issues has yet been taken by, which set up the working group on 18 March and said in a statement that it will “assess the need for amendments or temporary dispensations to the Fifa Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players” to protect contracts for both players and clubs and adjusting player registration periods. “This work has already started and will be conducted in consultation with all key stakeholders, including confederations, member associations, clubs, leagues and players,” Fifa added. Most domestic and international football competitions around the world have been suspended because of the pandemic and national team tournaments such as Euro 2020 and the Copa América have been postponed. While domestic leagues are hoping to resume when the threat from the virus has receded, concrete start dates have yet to be fixed. That leaves the issue of expiring player contracts, which are usually timed to finish at the end of a given season, as a potential headache. The key suggestion to the working group in the document seen by Reuters is that “where an agreement is due to expire at the original end date of a season, such expiry be extended until the new end date of the season”. Current contracts for players and coaches should be extended until the end of the delayed domestic football seasons, according to an internal FIFA document presented to its Coronavirus Working Group.
The Badgers, with head coach Mark Johnson and 2 Olympians back in the fold, hope to improve.[/media-credit]With head coach Mark Johnson, senior forward Megan Duggan and junior forward Hilary Knight returning to the team after a year at the Olympics, the Wisconsin women’s hockey team is finally back together and hoping to get back to their winning ways.Last season Wisconsin had what could be called an off year. Missing its head coach and two offensive leaders, the Badgers played to a 18-15-3 record. After fighting all the way into the national championship the previous four seasons, Wisconsin faced a heartbreaking loss to Ohio State in the first round of the WCHA playoffs, and any further postseason hopes the squad had were squashed.“I think we learned a lot, struggling a little bit last year,” junior forward Brooke Ammerman said. “I think it’s made us tougher. We were a young team, but now we have a lot of upperclassmen and coach Johnson back and a couple Olympians, so I think we’ll be stronger.”Clearly the Badgers are more confident this year, with stronger chemistry and two more players from the 2009 National Championship team.Although Wisconsin wants to bounce back from last year, Johnson doesn’t think the team has anything to prove this season.“There were circumstances last year that not only the coaching staff, but also the players had to go through, and coming off a national championship – things happen in our world you can’t control,” Johnson said. “We’re jumping in a boat right now and we’re going fishing, but we don’t know what we’re going to catch. We’re going to have a good time and become the strongest team we can be. Some nights it’s going to look real good and other nights we’re going to have to work and it’s going to be a struggle, but that’s how you develop.”While they say they’re just trying to improve this year and become the best team they can be, the Badgers will always have hopes to go to another national championship.“That’s why we do what we do,” Johnson said. “But that’s no different from anyone else in the country. Everybody starts Friday night and everybody’s goal is to be playing in the last game at the end of the season. One of the underlying goals is to take this group of players and make them the best team they’re capable of becoming. If they’re able to win a championship, you know what, that’s awesome.”“You can’t jump ahead too far, you have to take it in baby steps,” Duggan added. “You can’t just be looking at that 40th game right now, we haven’t even played our first. That’s everyone’s dream, to win a national championship, but a lot goes into that. I’m excited to just progress and get there eventually if we can.”Friday night, No. 5 Wisconsin opens its season at the Kohl Center against Rensselaer Polytechnic.“We’re really excited,” Ammerman said. “The first game’s always the best. A bunch of parents come out, and the freshmen, it’s the first time seeing their jerseys. We’re all hungry to get back on the ice and we’re all excited because we’ve been practicing really well. It should be a strong start.”With all the pieces put back into place, the team is excited to finally get the season underway, with the first four series all at home.“Having that home ice advantage – practicing, not having to travel, getting good rest – it’s going to be good for us,” sophomore defenseman Saige Pacholok said. “We have to perform on the road as well, but we’ll take advantage of that right now.”Friday night’s season opener will be the first time UW and RPI has ever met on the ice. RPI finished last season with a 16-15-6 record and returns nine forwards along with two goaltenders.“I don’t know too much about their program,” Duggan said. “I know for some reason they won their league either last year or the year before and obviously that’s tough to do. I’m an east coast kid so I know the [ECAC] is pretty powerful. I think you can’t underestimate your opponents in any game. I think we need to bring what we bring. We need to prepare ourselves as best we can and just do what we do and not focus on what they’re doing. That’s how we’ll be successful.”
Yasmeen Serhan contributed to this report. USC Concerts Committee, a group within Program Board, and the USC Office of Campus Activities announced that Childish Gambino will headline Thursday’s Conquest concert -— part of an annual spirit rally before the USC-UCLA football game.Childish Gambino is one of the first solo artists to perform for Conquest. In the past, headliners for Conquest included Cobra Starship, Third Eye Blind, the Dan Band and OK GO. Comedian Michael Ian Black will host this year’s Conquest.Donald Glover, who performs under the stage name Childish Gambino, released his first hip-hop mixtape in 2008. Last November, he released Camp, his first album on a major record label. The record has sold more than 160,000 copies in the United States. Glover also has a career in television and film: he was an actor on NBC’s Community and a member of the sketch comedy group Derrick Comedy that wrote the feature-length film Mystery Team.This year, Conquest starts at 7 p.m. and will be held on McCarthy Quad. Students are required to show their student IDs to enter the concert.Most students reacted positively to the announcement of Childish Gambino as the Conquest headliner, including Konrad Mueller, a sophomore majoring in economics and mathematics.“I’m really stoked that Gambino is playing,” Mueller said. “I feel like he’s one of the best up-and-coming rappers in the rap game right now and I feel like it’s awesome that we were able to land such a great act like that.”Though some students were excited for the newcomer artist, other students expressed disappointment.“I’d heard of Childish Gambino before, but I never listened to [him] so I’m going to listen to [him] now,” said Jennifer Bailey, a freshman neuroscience major. “But I’m just wondering why we couldn’t get anyone more famous.”In addition to Gambino, Conquest will include performances by the Trojan Marching Band and the Song Girls. Plans for the event also include a bonfire and fireworks display.Regardless of whether students are excited or ambivalent toward Childish Gambino’s performance, most students said they were excited for the Conquest celebration and the football game against UCLA on Saturday.Francisco Gomez-Palacio, a freshman majoring in music industry, said he was eager to experience his first Conquest.“Ever since Childish Gambino’s Camp album came out, I’ve been a big fan,” Gomez-Palacio said. “I think it’s going to be really fun on a college campus, so I’m really excited for it to happen.”
INDIANAPOLIS – The drama, the wait and the heartbreak are over. The Wisconsin Badgers are the 2011 Big Ten champions.In a game frighteningly similar to the team’s first matchup Oct. 22, No. 15 Wisconsin (11-2, 6-2) edged out No. 13 Michigan State (10-3, 7-2) 42-39 for the outright Big Ten title.It was a bruising game, where Michigan State seemed to control every facet possible for a stretch of time, until Wisconsin had its very own Hail Mary-esque play that led to the go-ahead touchdown and a Rose Bowl berth for the second consecutive year.On 4th-and-6 from the Michigan State 43-yard line, Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson scrambled around the backfield until he lobbed up a pass into double coverage. Sophomore wide receiver Jeff Duckworth leaped and grabbed the 36-yard pass on the MSU 7-yard line, rejuvenating the Badger offense and setting up a Montee Ball touchdown for the win.“I knew Duckworth was running deep back to the back corner, and that was my only shot, really and I just gave him a shot,” Wilson said. “I knew he would come down with it once I put it up in the air, and it was a pretty spectacular play.”“It’s a great way of improvising,” head coach Bret Bielema said. “One of the great things about Russell Wilson is his ability to make a play last longer. … A common saying that we’ve been using quite a bit over the last three or four weeks is, ‘Those who are humbled will be exalted and those who are exalted will be humbled.’ And I thought that play right there gave justice to everything.”Wisconsin ultimately had only 345 total yards compared to Michigan State’s 471. MSU had 190 rushing yards and 281 passing yards, as quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 22 of 30 passes for three touchdowns and one interception.Wilson – who was awarded the Grange-Griffin Trophy as the game’s most valuable player – had a similar performance, completing 17 of 24 passes for 187 yards and three touchdowns. UW finished with 219 passing yards thanks to a 32-yard pass from Ball to Wilson that set up Ball’s first touchdown of the game in the first quarter.Ball had a brilliant first quarter, gaining 105 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries. He averaged 8.1 yards per carry in the first quarter, but MSU’s defense greatly slowed him down for the remainder of the game. While UW had a total of 126 yards rushing, Ball finished with 137 yards on 27 carries and three rushing touchdowns on an average of 5.1 yards per carry.“[Michigan State is] a really physical team,” Ball said. “They have one of the best run defenses in the nation, so they did a great job of capitalizing on a couple of our runs, but I take everything to heart. So after a couple of runs were stopped, I really took it to heart and told myself I have to make some plays and I really wanted to put the offense on my back.”When asked if his performance was Heisman Trophy- worthy, Ball humbly said he was thankful for the chance to go to California with his teammates. Senior safety Aaron Henry wasn’t satisfied with the response.“Montee is a modest young man, you can see,” Henry said, interrupting Ball’s answer. “We faced one of the best-run defenses in the country. For him to have the performance he had tonight, I thought it was stellar. He is a Heisman candidate no matter how you look at it … We’ve got some great finalists, but this guy’s one of the best backs in the country, hands down.”While the end of the game was a joyous occasion for the team and Badger Nation as a whole, the game in its entirety was a back-and-forth affair.The Badgers jumped on top quickly as yet another forced fumble from sophomore linebacker Conor O’Neill – recovered by sophomore tight end Jacob Pedersen – set up UW on MSU’s 24-yard line. Two runs later by Ball, the Badgers were up 21-7.The Badgers would not score again before halftime.Instead, it was Michigan State who took control of the momentum and the game. Cousins exploited UW’s secondary, passing for 181 yards in the first half and two touchdowns, giving the Spartans a 29-21 lead at the half.“It was pretty calm,” senior fullback Bradie Ewing said of UW’s locker room at halftime. “We had been in that position before, and guys weren’t flustered. We came out; some different guys said stuff, Coach B said stuff, some of the captains said some things. It’s just all about taking it one play at a time and just going out there and executing. We were prepared, we knew what we had to do. It’s about getting a few yards on first downs and just going. We can’t put ourselves in bad positions and get behind the chains.”The Badgers proved they could complete a second-half comeback, despite the momentum swings throughout the game.Even as the Badgers faced punting the ball away on 4th-and-3 on their own 26, it was the Spartans who made the final mistake this time around.After punter Brad Nortman sent the football down field, Michigan State safety Isaiah Lewis ran into Nortman, sending him to the ground. Lewis was called for roughing the kicker and Wisconsin was able to kneel on the ball three times to seal the win.“There was certainly some contact,” Nortman said. “I wasn’t thinking, before the play, I’m going to take a flop here, but when you’re in the air and a little vulnerable, a little bit extra [acting] doesn’t hurt.”Regardless, with some luck falling on their side, the Badgers are heading back to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl.“Oh my gosh,” Henry said. “It’s a feeling that’s unexplainable.”

The most ferocious fist pump was when he walked off the 18th green, scooped up 10-year-old son Charlie, and embraced his mother and his 11-year-old daughter Sam.“For them to see what it’s like to have their dad win a major championship, I hope that’s something they will never forget,” Woods said.Who can ever forget this day?“It’s hard to really feel bad about how I played because I just witnessed history,” said Xander Schauffele, one of three players who finished second. “It was really cool coming down the stretch, all the historic holes, Tiger making the roars. I feel like I got full Masters experience.”The comeback goes beyond the two-shot deficit he erased before a delirious audience that watched memories turn into reality.It had been 14 years since he last won the Masters — no one had ever gone that long between green jackets. He had gone nearly 11 years since his last major, the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines on a shattered left leg.This was bigger. Woods never missed a shot that mattered over the final seven holes, taking the lead with a 5-iron to the fat of the green on the par-5 15th for a two-putt birdie, delivering the knockout with an 8-iron that rode down the ridge by the cup and settled 2 feet away for birdie on the par-3 16th.He tapped in for bogey and a 2-under 70, and the celebration was on.“WOOOOOOO!!!” Woods screamed as he headed for the scoring room with chants of “Tiger! Tiger! Tiger!” He had never hugged more people, everyone in his camp who stood by him through a public divorce, an embarrassing mug shot from his DUI arrest when he took a bad mix of painkillers and the four back surgeries, the most recent to fuse his lower spine“I had serious doubts after what transpired a couple of years ago,” Woods said. “I could barely walk. I couldn’t sit. Couldn’t lay down. I really couldn’t so much of anything. … To have the opportunity to come back like this, it’s probably one of the biggest wins I’ve ever had for sure because of it.” COMMENT LIVE TV Tiger Woods blazing to victory in his Sunday red at the Masters, a scene once so familiar, was never more stunning.It was only two years ago at Augusta National that Woods needed a nerve block just to hobble upstairs to the Champions Dinner, unsure he would ever play another round of golf.
