SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Former Pennsylvania Governors Voice Support for Wolf Administration Response to COVID-19 July 17, 2020 Press Release, Public Health Three former Pennsylvania governors today voiced their support for how Governor Tom Wolf and his administration have responded to the COVID-19 pandemic, including endorsing statewide mitigation efforts and mask-wearing.“As a former Governor of Pennsylvania, I know all too well the importance of swift action to keep Pennsylvanians safe during a crisis,” former Gov. Mark Schweiker said. “Governor Wolf has worked throughout this pandemic to both safeguard our citizens and keep our economy moving during this hard time. Yesterday’s executive order is meant to help us all avoid the public health issues which we faced this past spring. These summer measures, as I see it, are part of a strategy to help us avoid a second public health and economic crisis later in the year. Wearing your mask amounts to saying let’s beat the virus now, not later when it might be too late.”“All Pennsylvanians should heed the Wolf Administration’s directives to wear a mask when out of the home,” former Gov. Tom Ridge said. “Like all Pennsylvanians, Gov. Wolf and Secretary Levine are hoping to avoid the COVID-19 spikes impacting other states so that we can get our economy back up and running as soon as possible. Wearing a mask is a simple, selfless act all of us should support.”“A global pandemic like this requires leadership and swift action to prevent devastating effects on our citizens and our society,” former Gov. Ed Rendell said. “Governor Wolf’s mitigation efforts have been both effective and strong, and, as a result has saved the lives of countless Pennsylvanians. The recent spike means we must pull together again as a Commonwealth to stop the spread of this disease and keep our citizens and communities safe. The Governor’s new executive order on mitigation is the right thing to do, is measured and Pennsylvania will be better and safer for it. I encourage all of my fellow Pennsylvanians to stay safe, to wear a mask, to practice social distancing, and to help stop the spread of this disease.”The governor’s most recent order on mitigation efforts can be found here.The secretary’s order on mask-wearing can be found here.FAQs on mask-wearing can be found here.Ver esta página en español.

ST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC) – Cricket West Indies (CWC) and Nicholas Pooran have settled their differences, paving the way for the promising left-hander to return to West Indies colours.The announcement by CWI came just hours after they also revealed an end to the impasse with leading Test batsman Darren Bravo, on a day of rare reconciliation in West Indies cricket.Pooran, 21, had been suspended by CWI for opting out of the Professional Cricket League (PCL) despite being selected by Leeward Islands Hurricanes for last season’s campaign.However, the CWI said the period of the player’s suspension had since elapsed and both parties had opted to “settle this matter amicably” in the best interest of West Indies cricket.“The parties jointly state, however, that following bilateral good faith discussions, they have decided to settle this matter amicably. The parties add that they are both committed to the development of West Indies Cricket at all levels and continue to have those interests uppermost in their minds,” a statement from CWI said yesterday.“Whilst not delving into the merits of their respective positions on the matter, the parties regret that it occurred as it did and accept that this has served as a learning experience for both players and administrators, in terms of best practice for the professionalisation of cricket in the region.”Pooran will now be eligible for selection to all formats.The Trinidadian, an aggressive top-order batsman and wicketkeeper, has already played three Twenty20 Internationals following his debut against Pakistan in United Arab Emirates last September.He failed to make an impression, however, and mustered just 25 runs from his three outings.Pooran was picked up in the PCL draft but then snubbed the Hurricanes contract in order to represent Khulna Titans in the Bangladesh Premier League.CWI said then there would be “consequences” for players who failed to honour their commitments to the PCL.
U.S. Senator Al Franken spoke about the influence of the Jewish tradition on public service on Wednesday at the 12th annual Carmen and Louis Warschaw Distinguished Lecture, hosted by the USC Casden Institute for the Study of the Jewish Role in American Life. The event was held in the Davidson Executive Conference Center.Tradition · Minnesota Senator Al Franker speaks to students about the role his Jewish heritage played throughout his extensive political career. – Ralf Cheung | Daily TrojanThe junior senator from Minnesota, who was elected to Congress in 2008, used the charisma and storytelling skills that he developed as a Saturday Night Live comedy writer and political satirist.“Today I’d like to talk about three Jews: a printing salesman, a rabbi and a professor,” Franken said. “This, mind you, is not the set up for a joke.”To many laughs and much applause, Franken began his narrative by talking about his father, who was a printing salesman. Though he spoke of the humble beginnings of growing up in a Minneapolis suburb, Franken maintained that he considered himself “one of the luckiest kids alive.” He credits his father with inciting both his love of humor, as well as his political views, which were largely shaped by images of the civil rights movement playing out in the south.“My dad, when he saw demonstrators being clubbed and having dogs sicked on them, he turned to me and my brother and he would say ‘That is wrong. No Jew can be for that,’” Franken said.His religious relationship with his childhood rabbi reinforced his ideas of righteousness.“Rabbi Shapiro always used to say that it wasn’t enough simply to be just,” Franken said. “You have to do justice.”Franken said Paul Wellstone, who was Franken’s predecessor in the Senate seat and served as his member of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, said he was an helpful example of the intersection between public diplomacy and civil rights.“It really wasn’t until I met the third Jew in my story, the professor, that I understood how public service represents a special kind of call to action, a special chance to do justice,” Franken said.Franken said that he developed a strong interest in politics while campaigning for Wellstone during his first senate race because humor was inherent a part of the field.Though Franken is known for his liberal political views, his speech was not political in nature. Rather, he spoke of politics as a vehicle for positive change.“Politics is about the improvement of people’s lives,” Franken said.During the question-and-answer discussion that followed his speech, Franken continued to emphasize the role of his Jewish heritage played in his public service experience.“I hope that your Jewish faith, your Jewish values and your Jewish role models are as powerful a source of strength and wisdom for you as mine have been for me,” Frank said as he addressed the Jewish people in the audience.Though those in attendance were primarily alumni and community members, students had positive reactions toward his speech.“I loved that it was a personal story. He’s a very political guy with very strong views, but I think the lecture stayed true to his purpose,” said Brandon Cheung, a freshman majoring in political science.Aaron Taxy, the president of USC College Democrats, said he was “star struck” following the event because of the senator’s eloquence.“I thought the senator did a perfect job at articulating the Jewish mindset of public service, to always seek justice,” Taxy said. “He rightly emphasized why Jews are such an asset to our political process.”Some students said that it was the senator’s talent for storytelling that was the greatest highlight of his speech.“The way that he started with the anecdote about how he grew up and then fed it in to all of his other experiences and beliefs, it kept bringing us back to the original topic,” said Amanda Kantor, a senior majoring in philosophy, politics and law. “It effectively connected his faith everything that he does day to day as a senator.”
Published on February 22, 2018 at 10:55 pm Contact Andrew: firstname.lastname@example.org | @A_E_Graham Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse (21-7, 9-6 Atlantic Coast) drained 20 3-pointers Thursday night, setting a new single-game program record in a 86-80 win over North Carolina (14-14, 4-11) in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.Gabrielle Cooper and Miranda Drummond combined for 52 points in the SU win. The duo hit 15 3-pointers, missing three attempts the entire game.“Feeling good,” SU head coach Quentin Hillsman said. “We shot it well. You wanna be able to make shots and be aggressive and that’s what we did.”The 3 carried Syracuse from the opening tipoff. Less than a minute into the game, Drummond canned a 3, and Cooper followed her first make from deep just over 30 seconds later.“We had to get good looks and did a really good job of getting good looks and moving the ball around,” Hillsman said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBy the end of the first quarter, SU had buried seven 3s, but only led by one point, 28-27. Still, in the second stanza, neither team could find any separation. Syracuse kept shooting from deep and finished the half shooting 45 percent from beyond the arc, but the Tar Heels countered with an efficient 48.6 from the entire field.After 20 minutes, the teams were tied, 41-41.As the second half wore on, though, Syracuse’s onslaught from behind the arc never slowed. If anything, it picked up. The Orange buried 11 more triples in the final 20 minutes, finally mustering enough offense to create a cushion.“Huge,” Hillsman said of the explosive offense. “They (UNC) were scoring, so we had to score too.”Cooper scored 16 in the second half while Drummond racked up 15 in the frame.“When they’re both hitting we’re a great team,” Hillsman said of Cooper and Drummond. “Any time you have two premiere shooters hitting from range, you’re going to be tough to beat.”Feeding the shooters was point guard Tiana Mangakahia, who finished with 14 assists and 12 points of her own.Syracuse is now one win away from 10 conference wins — the number head coach Quentin Hillsman said his team would need to feel comfortable about making the NCAA Tournament — after holding off North Carolina.If the Orange can get similar production from its offense in its home finale on Sunday against Boston College, it should be well on its way to Hillsman’s mark.“Honestly, we’re playing well, and we’re playing solid basketball,” Hillsman said.

Usain Bolt ran his fastest time of the season to win his Olympic 200m semi-final in 19.78 seconds as Justin Gatlin missed out on a place in the final.Jamaica’s Bolt has already won the 100m and is now aiming for an eighth Olympic gold by retaining his 200m title.But American Gatlin, who won silver behind Bolt in the 100m final, only finished third in his semi-final.Britain’s Adam Gemili, 22, reached Thursday’s final (02:30 BST, Friday) as one of two fastest losers.Gatlin, 34, banned twice for doping offences, clocked 20.13 and failed to progress along with another big name – Yohan Blake.The Jamaican, who won silver behind Bolt in London four years ago, has been hampered by injury over the past couple of years and faded to finish sixth in 20.37 seconds. LaShawn Merritt, who has run 19.74 this year, is likely to pose the biggest challenge to Bolt in the final.But Bolt believes he can break his world record of 19.19 and could even go under 19 seconds in the final.”I definitely think I can try for the world record, I definitely feel that,” he said. “I need to run efficiently and get into the straight and run the perfect race.”Bolt said he would have a better chance of achieving his goal to run under 19 seconds if he gets a high lane, adding: “If I get a lower lane it’s always harder for me to run the corner when it is tighter.”On Gatlin’s exit, Bolt told BBC Radio 5 live: “Everybody’s in shock. You can tell from the 100m he’s getting old. It’s a fact the older you get, the rougher it gets to double. “Next year if I go to the World Championships [in London] I’m not going to double. I’m going to do the 100m and that is it.”De Grasse and Bolt enjoyed a moment of fun as they crossed the line’Lazy’ Bolt eases into finalBolt has won all seven of his previous Olympic finals, claiming gold in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay at both Beijing 2008 and London 2012.Here, the 29-year-old was laughing as he crossed the line just two hundredths of a second ahead of Canada’s Andre de Grasse. “Andre was supposed to slow down. He didn’t,” he joked.”I said: ‘What are you doing, it is the semis?’ He said he had to push me.”I was a bit lazy, I don’t know why, but I executed it.”Gatlin Gatlin falls short againGatlin is a divisive figure in athletics, having returned to the sport after serving two bans.He claimed Olympic bronze at London 2012 and silver behind Bolt in the 2015 World Championships.After missing out on 100m gold on Sunday, he fell short in the 200m after appearing to lose focus when he glanced across the track 60 metres from the finish.Gatlin, who ran 19.75 last month – the second fastest time of the year, said afterwards he had been hampered by an ankle injury.”I’m happy to still be here for the relays,” he said. “My ankle is giving me a lot of problems. I can’t run properly and I had a tight turn in lane three.” Gemili determined to ‘push on’Gemili, 22, was third in 20.08, with his place in the final confirmed following the third semi-final.”I really tightened up. I’m in a lot better shape than 20.08. I was really disappointed seeing that,” he said.”But that’s a good thing I suppose that I’m not satisfied with that and I will go and push on.”His team-mate Danny Talbot clocked a personal best 20.25, the same time as Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake, but it was not enough for either to go through.The top two in each semi-final qualified automatically, along with the two fastest losers.
