Topics : Canada has entered a second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Wednesday, warning that the country was on the brink of a surge if people did not follow public health guidelines.In a rare national address, Trudeau said the country “is at a crossroads” as a second wave emerges in four large provinces, adding that the government would do whatever it took to help the country recover from the pandemic.”We’re on the brink of a fall that could be much worse than the spring,” he said. Total infections reached 147,753, while 9,243 people have died, according to latest government data.”This is not the time for austerity,” the government said in the speech. “Canada entered this crisis in the best fiscal position of its peers.”The range of promises and mentions of significant investments could upset markets showing signs of nervousness about soaring budget deficits and debt. Canada lost one of its coveted triple-A ratings in June when Fitch downgraded it for the first time, citing the spending.The Canadian dollar extended its decline after the speech, touching 1.3384 to the US dollar, or 74.72 US cents.’High-risk bet’In his address, Trudeau said low interest rates meant Ottawa could afford the promised spending.”Doing less would mean a slower recovery and bigger deficits in the long run,” he said, adding that long-term spending would be fiscally sustainable.Spending measures already announced mean Canada’s budget deficit this fiscal year is forecast to hit C$343.2 billion ($256.5 billion), the largest since World War Two.Ian Lee, associate professor of management at Ottawa’s Carleton University, said the speech represented a “very high-risk bet” by Trudeau.”He’s gambling this massive increase in expenditures is going to generate very substantial growth,” he said by phone.The throne speech is a parliamentary measure of confidence and given that the Liberals only have a minority in the House of Commons, they will need the support of opposition legislators to avoid being toppled and plunging the country into an election.The left-leaning New Democrats – who had indicated they might vote in favor – said the proposals did not offer enough support to Canadians.Party leader Jagmeet Singh said he did not want to force an election, adding his team would take “a lot of time” to decide what to do. A formal vote is likely next month.The Conservatives, the largest opposition group, confirmed expectations they would not back the government.The Trudeau government said it was sticking to the goal of fighting climate change and promised money to retrofit buildings and make zero-emissions vehicles more widely available.The Liberals also vowed to make significant investments in childcare and said they would extend an existing wage subsidy measure until next summer. The speech made no specific spending commitments or fiscal projections, some of which will be disclosed in a fiscal update later this year. Canada’s COVID-19 cases have spiked in recent days, with an average of 1,123 new cases reported daily over the past week, compared with a daily average of 380 cases in mid-August.”We have the power to get this second wave under control. I know we can do it, because we’ve already done it once before,” Trudeau added.Canadians are now more worried about COVID-19 than they have been since April, an Abacus Data poll showed.Earlier, the government made the commitments in the so-called Speech from the Throne, which lays out its agenda for the next parliamentary session, and promised to recover more than a million jobs lost during the crisis.

Awareness sign during the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone Awareness sign during the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra LeoneSouth African health minister Aaron Motsoaledi says establishing Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Africa will ensure the continent is not caught by surprise with an outbreak such as Ebola.Announcing a health cooperation agreement between Africa and China on Tuesday, the two health ministers, Motsoaledi and Lin Bin, said they realised the importance of establishing a resilient health system in Africa, which would include the creation of the CDC.Chinese government has committed to build 100 health facilities in across Africa and to help establish disease control centres.“We don’t want to wait for another disaster. So a CDC is going to be a form of surveillance, which will help us. It’s going to be Africa’s intelligence centre. The CDC will work as an intelligence centre for diseases, to tell us that if we don’t watch out, this is likely to happen. With the CDC, we as African countries will know what is about to happen. Unlike what happened with Ebola. We were caught napping there.” Motsoaledi saidApart from a main CDC in the continent, each African region will have a centre in each countries which have laboratories that will be regarded as World Health Organisation [WHO] collaborating centres.

The former Celtic and Hibs defender is on the lookout for a new club having left Derby in the summer. The 30-year-old has already turned down a number of lucrative offers because it wasn’t right for him and his family. But he revealed a return to Scotland is something that would have an appeal. Ambrose said: “I would never say never about the possibility of coming back to Scottish football. “It is a great place to play football and I feel the Scottish league is growing and getting better. “The standing and reputation of the league is growing and there is a real profile to it with the likes of Neil Lennon and Steven Gerrard now at Celtic and Rangers. “I have had some great times in Scotland. My times there, with Celtic and Hibs, were amongst the best of my career and if there was interest there then it is something I would definitely consider.” Ambrose has also insisted his next move is not just about money. He said: “I have had some offers. I had a big-money offer from Turkey that would have seen me earn more than I did at Celtic but it just didn’t feel right. “I want a club to make sure the move is right for my family and for me at this stage in my career.” The centre-half is currently back in Nigeria but has been keeping himself fit by turning out for his local side, Narayi Celtic Kaduna, who were formed after his own spell at Parkhead. Ambrose said: “I have been training every day with my local team back in Nigeria and playing in friendly games. “So when I get my next move sorted, I will be ready to hit the ground running and to be able to get up to speed very quickly. That was the problem when I went to Derby last season.”Tags: CelticDerbyEfe AmbroseHibs
Press Association The need for reinforcements at Old Trafford was laid bare in the most humiliating fashion on Tuesday night as United were dumped out of the Capital One Cup with a 4-0 defeat to MK Dons. United’s lack of depth was easy for all to see as fringe players like Anderson, Danny Welbeck, Javier Hernandez and Shinji Kagawa all failed to impress manager Louis van Gaal. The new United boss made his fourth signing of the summer on Tuesday in the shape of Angel di Maria, who cost a British transfer record fee of £59.7million, and more new arrivals are expected before Monday’s deadline. Blind, a versatile Dutchman who can play left-back or in central midfield, is on Van Gaal’s transfer wish list, but Ajax want to hold on to the player for another year so they will not let him go cheaply in this window. “We believe that we currently have a strong team and want Daley to stay for another year,” Ajax director of football Marc Overmars told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf. “Only if the absolute top price is paid is a transfer negotiable. “Daley’s management know how we feel at the moment. “Next year we will have a much more lenient policy, we are willing to talk with Daley and we will settle for a reasonable price.” Blind’s agent Rob Jansen claimed on Tuesday United were yet to launch a bid to sign the 24-year-old son of former Holland international Danny Blind. And Overmars said there had still been no enquiry from United for the player on Wednesday. Ajax have told Manchester United they will not be able to sign Daley Blind on the cheap. “There’s some rumblings around Daley, some clubs enquired, but there is no concrete offer,” the former Arsenal winger said. “And with Manchester United, there is no contact at all.” Van Gaal, who is also interested in Arturo Vidal, hopes to include Di Maria in his squad for Saturday’s trip to Burnley. The Argentina international was not present at United’s galling defeat at stadium:mk, but he will no doubt be aware of the club’s poor plight. Van Gaal’s team have taken one point from their opening two Premier League fixtures and the 63-year-old conceded last week it would take a “miracle” for United to lift the trophy in May. Di Maria wants to win silverware with United, but his immediate ambition is to help the club finish in the top four. “I want to achieve great things with Manchester United and I would like to win many trophies with them,” the former Real Madrid man told MUTV. “One of the objectives and one of the goals would be to actually get back into the Champions League.” Di Maria’s form at the World Cup was one of the main reasons why United had to pay so much for the former Benfica man. The winger was named on the shortlist for player of the tournament, even though he missed the final defeat to Germany and the last-four encounter against Holland, who were then managed by Van Gaal. The prospect of playing under Van Gaal excites Di Maria, who has signed a five-year contract with United. “I am looking forward to working with Louis van Gaal, he is a very good manager and he did very well with Holland during the World Cup,” he said. Di Maria hopes the presence of compatriot Marcos Rojo and fellow Spanish speakers like Juan Mata, David de Gea and Ander Herrera will help him settle in at United, where the players have been instructed to speak English to each other. “I don’t speak English at the moment, so to have people who speak Spanish is a big help for me,” Di Maria added. “I hope I will be able to learn English very quickly and get used to the city very quickly.”

Wishing for his speedy recovery. https://t.co/u0hYxOemtJ— Chowkidar Rajyavardhan Rathore (@Ra_THORe) May 7, 2019The 46-year-old, who came close to winning a bronze medal at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992, is being treated for a neuro-degenerative disease at the AIIMS here in a six-bed unit of the general ward. It’s learnt that Limba has developed Parkinson’s disease as he needs a good medical treatment.Earlier Dronacharya Awardee and national observer (archery) Sanjeeva Singh had written to the Sports Ministry making a plea for financial support for his treatment.”He (Limba) requires medical aid to the tune of Rs 4-5 lakh. Humbly request for your kind support. The medical aid can be directly given to AIIMS,” he wrote in the mail sent to DG SAI.Limba was also a successful coach having guided India to three gold, one silver and four bronze medals at the New Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games.With him as coach, the Indian recurve archers including Deepika Kumari held number one rankings.Limba’s contract was not renewed after India’s failure in London 2012 Olympics and since then the recurve archery is in a downward spiral.

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka, (CMC) – Manager of the West Indies team Rawl Lewis says the Caribbean men will not be underestimating Sri Lanka in their three-match One-Day International (ODI) series starting here Saturday, but will be focused on winning the series and regaining the support of fans across the region.Five years after a 3-0 whitewash in their last tour there, a “fit” West Indies team will be trying to secure their first ever ODI series win in Sri Lanka.West Indies lost their opening warm-up match in Colombo on Tuesday, going down by two wickets to a Sri Lanka Cricket XI. And they will take on a Sri Lanka Board President’s XI Thursday in their last tour match before facing a strong Sri Lanka side in the opening ODI.Speaking on the Mason & Guest radio show, Lewis said he is satisfied with the preparation ahead of this weekend’s game and believes the 15-man squad is ready for the task ahead.“All personnel have been working hard to prepare the team. We have no concern at this time. I really think that everything is in place. We have a few days to continue our preparation leading up to the first match. Everyone seems to be in high spirits, everyone is fit and ready,” the former West Indies leg-spinner said.He added that it was important for the Keiron Pollard-led team to end the series on a winning note, particularly to get people rallying around the West Indies again.“We have been playing very good cricket lately. We went to India and we didn’t win every match…but we competed well with India which is a very powerful team. We are never going to underestimate Sri Lanka. We played Ireland in the Caribbean; we won.We want to continue to win cricket. We need to develop this habit of winning matches and winning series. We would want to win every match that we play, and we understand that winning would bring back the fans to cricket, would encourage the people of the Caribbean to play more cricket.“So we need to continue to win as the senior team and just make sure that we get people back supporting West Indies cricket. As long as we keep winning, they keep supporting,” he said.The Grenadian, who first managed the team during their successful ICC T20 World Cup run in India in 2016 before returning to the position in February 2018, stressed that the management of the Caribbean side would keep fighting to get West Indies cricket back to where it needs to be.“We will never give up hope on West Indies cricket. We are here, we are working every day, we do whatever we need to do to ensure the players are well prepared to represent West Indies at the highest level. So we want to win every match, no doubt about it,” he assured.

Jack Flaherty (4-3, 3.76 ERA) has gotten through a bit of a sophomore slump to open the season and has given up three earned runs or less in each of his last seven starts. Jon Lester (4-4, 3.32) bounced back from three bad starts to toss seven innings of one-run ball his last time out. In the 11th inning with the game tied at 3, Robinson Chirinos doubled to left with Yuli Gurriel on base.The not-so-fleet-of-foot infielder then trucked around the bases and was waved around to go score, probably incorrectly.

Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYANAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 30- Belgian tactician Paul Put maintains his biggest target is to get Harambee Stars to their first Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) since 2004, this coming right at the end of his two-year tenure when the next edition will be hosted in Cameroon in 2019.The tactician, hired a fortnight ago to help actualize Kenya’s dream of not only being at the 2019 AFCON but the 2022 World Cup, will begin his tenure on Sunday when he lines up his charges for the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup. Put says the tournament is important and comes at the right time as he tries to learn his players and will give him a priceless opportunity to build up and lay a foundation for the next two years.“This tournament gives me a good opportunity to look at the local players in terms of technical and tactical ability, discipline and mentality,” the tactician said after conducting his fourth training session on Thursday in Nairobi.“The most important thing is that I am focused for 2019 but with this tournament we have a chance to start the work.”Paul Put has pledged to take Kenya to 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. Photo/COURTESYHis bosses at the Football Kenya Federation have given him the target of winning the Senior Challenge Cup on home soil and though he says he will be going out to clinch the trophy, he has asked for patience as he enforces his philosophy on the team.“In football everything is possible, but you have to be realistic. We have been working for five days now and it is not enough to prepare for a tournament in that period. However, we play at home and it is a motivation. I can see the drive in the players and I have a good feeling,” Put said.Kenya is drawn in Group A alongside Rwanda, Zanzibar, Tanzania and guest team Libya and Put believes it will be a tough group especially with Rwanda and Libya who have both qualified for next year’s African Nations Championship (CHAN).“It is not easy because the two teams will definitely bring quality players to prepare for CHAN. I know Libya because when I was in Algeria we played couple of matches with Ahli Tripoli who have many national team players and I know they are a quality side,” the coach noted.“It is important to play in such kind of a difficult group because it will give me a chance to see the level of our players and an opportunity for them to learn and improve,” Put further opined.Harambee Stars head coach Paul Put talks to his technical bench while conducting training at the Utalii Ground on 30th, November 2017. Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYAThe Belgian tactician comes into the country with a rich Curriculum Vitae dangling in his briefcase. He has coached Gambia and Burkina Faso in Africa as well as Jordan. His previous engagement was with Algerian club USM Alger.He beams confidence that he will be able to take the country to the 2019 AFCON but has pleaded patience from fans.The coach says he has been pleased with what he has seen so far in his five days coaching the team in camp and already, he says there are a few faces who have impressed him enough to be considered in the main team.“So far it has been good; the will is there and I can see the motivation of the players. It’s a good sign already. There is a long way to go and a lot of work to do, but as long as the players want to work and there is a good mentality of them wanting to improve we will be able to have a team to show Kenyan people we are willing to play,” the coach said.He has admitted that most of the work will revolve around the tactical and technical ability of the team which he says will need more work but notes that it is something that will be improved especially with the readiness of the players to learn.“There is a long road to travel and a lot has to be changed but you cannot change with one minute. It takes time. For example Spain and Germany who ruled the world for a long time started building with young players before getting to the top,” Put revealed.“We have the belief, I trust the players and we will do everything possible to make the Kenyan fans happy,” promised the 61 year-old.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)
WASHINGTON – The Senate voted Tuesday to require employers to use a vast new employment verification system that would allow businesses to distinguish between legal and illegal workers. Employers would be required to enter the Social Security numbers or immigrant identification numbers of all job applicants, including citizens, into the computerized system, which would be created by the Department of Homeland Security. The system would notify businesses within three days whether the applicant was authorized to work in the United States. Those job applicants determined to be illegal would have to be fired. The measure, approved 58-40, is included in a bill that would legalize the vast majority of the nation’s illegal immigrants, which is expected to pass the Senate later this week. The new requirements would result in a broad operational shift for employers who have relied almost entirely on a paper system – the collection of identity documents – to determine the legal status of their workers. The measure is considered a linchpin of the current immigration legislation because it is designed to deter illegal immigration by making it extremely difficult for undocumented immigrants to find work. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsWithout such a provision, senators say, U.S. businesses would remain a powerful magnet for millions of illegal immigrants. The legislation calls for creating documents that would be resistant to counterfeiting for legal immigrants and stiff fines for violations by employers. It requires the verification system to be operational and in use by all businesses within 18 months once Congress appropriates the money for it. “This is probably the single most important thing we can do in terms of reducing the inflow of undocumented workers,” Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., said of the measure, which was pushed ahead by Sen. Charles E. Grassley, R-Iowa. Grassley, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, hailed the measure as an effort “to balance the needs of workers, employers and immigration enforcement.” But some administration officials, employers and other lawmakers raised sharp questions about the amendment, which was developed in consultation with the American Civil Liberties Union. Officials at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce applauded the plan, but expressed doubts that homeland security officials could speedily create such a system. “This is a massive undertaking on the part of the federal government,” said Randy Johnson, vice president at the chamber. “Our conversations with the administration have indicated that 18 months is too short.” Officials at the Department of Homeland Security sent e-mail messages to senators saying they had concerns about the system’s “workability and implementation.” The vote in favor of employment verification came as the Senate rejected several amendments intended to help refugees and illegal immigrants affected by the legislation. Critics say the legislation would increase the burdens on asylum seekers, eliminate federal review of deportation orders and leave millions of illegal immigrants in the shadows. Human-rights groups are particularly concerned about a measure that would allow asylum seekers to be deported even while their claims were under review by federal courts. “The impact on asylum seekers would be devastating and potentially irreversible,” said Eleanor Acer, director of the asylum program at Human Rights First, an advocacy group. Lawmakers defeated a measure, sponsored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., that would have legalized all illegal immigrants, regardless of how long they have lived here. They also voted down an amendment to toughen workplace and safety standards and another to help refugees whose resettlement here has been delayed because their indirect support for armed rebels opposed to their repressive governments has put them in technical violation of U.S. antiterrorism laws.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
