Required fields are marked * Community News Beginning Wednesday, Los Angeles County businesses that are permitted to remain open during the coronavirus pandemic will be required to provide employees with cloth face coverings, and customers who patronize the businesses must also wear them.Under the guidelines that were announced Friday, “essential” businesses must also publicly post a “social distancing protocol” explaining how the business is assuring that social distancing requirements are being met, regular cleaning is being done and sanitizing equipment is being made available.The order from the county health officer requires businesses to provide “cloth face coverings to employees and contracted workers whose duties require close contact — within 6 feet for 10 minutes or more — with other employees and/or the public.”Businesses must also require “that members of the public who enter the facility wear a face covering during their time in the facility.”The city of Los Angeles and some other municipalities had previously issued orders requiring customers and employees of grocery stores and take-out restaurants to wear face coverings.The social-distancing requirements of the updated county order requires that — as part of “social distancing” — residents wear “a cloth face covering while out in public when in contact with others, not including members of a single household or living unit.”The Department of Public Health’s guidance on face coverings asks that people wear a covering over their nose and mouth “when you must be in public for essential activities, such as shopping at the grocery store.” It also sates, “Everyone is asked to wear a face covering when they are interacting with others who are not members of their household in public and private spaces.”Health officials noted that wearing a face covering does not eliminated the need to maintain a six-foot buffer from others.

There are two names synonymous with adventure in Brevard: Oskar Blues and Bill Baldwin. Oskar Blues has been hosting the 4-Miler and other outdoor events in the region for years, and it’s an outpost for adventure in Pisgah. Baldwin has been a top athlete ever since he was named All American Cross-Country MVP in 1996 while running for Brevard College. Today, at age 42, Baldwin is an elite running coach—and still a badass runner—who trains in his hometown, and he’s the race director of the Oskar Blues 4-Miler.Over 200 runners toe the starting line for this scenic course starting at the Oskar Blues Brewery. Live music and food trucks at the start/finish keep runners motivated and hungry for the finish line. Age group winners receive beer steins and handmade local pottery while overall winners receive gift certificates from Asheville Running Company. Proceeds go to the Local Smart Girls of Brevard, part of the Local Boys and Girls Club.The race starts at 11:00 am on Saturday, with a kids’ 1-mile fun run taking off soon after at 11:05. Event organizers ask that you register early here.
Healthcare, National Issues, Press Release, Public Health, Women’s Rights Blue Bell, Pa. – Governor Tom Wolf and First Lady Frances Wolf were in Blue Bell today to participate in a panel discussion and community forum on the importance of Planned Parenthood. The event was held at Montgomery County Community College’s main campus.The panel was moderated by Montgomery County Commissioner and physician Valerie Arkoosh. Other participants included Planned Parenthood medical providers, staff, and patients. The audience posed questions for the panel, seeking answers on everything from access to health care for immigrant women and proposed legislation in D.C. that could severely affect funding for Planned Parenthood.“As the U.S. Senate continues to consider changes to the American health care system, we need to reject flawed amendments and support bipartisan efforts to make health care more available and affordable for all Americans, including preserving funding for Planned Parenthood,” Governor Wolf said.Governor and First Lady Wolf were Planned Parenthood volunteers in York and continue to support women’s health care rights and access. In Pennsylvania, nearly 50 percent of Planned Parenthood’s health centers are in medically under-served areas. Last year, Planned Parenthood served about 90,000 patients in Pennsylvania and provided nearly 170,000 screenings for sexually transmitted diseases, over 9,000 cervical cancer screenings and 11,000 breast wellness exams.“It’s particularly important that we fight to oppose any legislation that limits access to health care for all,” Wolf said. “I am committed to doing all that I can to make sure Pennsylvania is a place that celebrates individual choice, liberty, and personal freedoms.” Governor Wolf and First Lady Join Planned Parenthood for Panel Discussion on Women’s Health Care Rights and Access September 19, 2017 SHARE Email Facebook Twitter

Tags: Conor Gough, England Boys’ Squad, English Men’s Amateur Championship Conor Gough produced a sparkling performance to win the English Men’s Amateur Championship at Hankley Common in Surrey.The 16-year-old from Stoke Park beat 20-year-old Callum Farr from Northamptonshire County 3&2 in the final to add to the McGregor Trophy and the British Boys’ titles he won last year.Gough spent much of the early part of the season studying for his GCSEs but clearly the enforced break has had no detrimental effect on his golf.He began the morning round of the final by hitting a 350-yard drive down the first and then holing out from 12-feet for a birdie and seven holes later he was three up after a birdie on the 6th and an eagle on the 8th.20-year-old Farr claimed his first hole of the day when he birdied from just off the front of the green at the 10th but he could never quite reel in his opponent and he was four down heading into lunch before he won the 18th with a par.Farr started the second round strongly by winning the first with a birdie and the second with a par but he found himself three down again after dropping shots at both the 4th and the 5th. Thereafter the pair were to share eight birdies between them before Gough sealed victory with a testing four-foot downhill putt for a par on the short 16th.“It feels great to win,” said Gough moments after holing the winning putt. “I played really well. I love match play and as soon as I got through the stroke play qualifier I knew I had a good chance.“I’m proud of myself. I’ve got a couple of big weeks coming up so I hope I can keep things going.“I’ve got the Boys’ Home Internationals next week and then the US Amateur Championship at Pinehurst. I’m really looking forward to that. It’s the same format as this so hopefully I can put in another good performance.”It was impossible not to feel for England “A” squad member Farr who has now reached the last four and the last two in the past two years without tasting success.“I hit the ball better this afternoon but just couldn’t get the putts to drop,” he said. “I’m disappointed but Conor is a very good player and he deserved to win because he played a lot better than me.“I got to the semi-final last year and now the final so maybe next year will be my year,” he added.Photo: Credit Leaderboard Photography. 5 Aug 2019 Gough claims Men’s Amateur title
8 August 2013 Leaders from South Africa’s Institute for Security Studies, Business against Crime South Africa, AgriSA and the South African Banking Risk Information Centre have pledged their support to the country’s police service in the fight against crime. “We needed to interact with these important partners who have helped us in our crime reduction programmes,” Mthethwa said in Pretoria on Tuesday. “As the ministry, we move from a premise that it is only through strong partnerships that we can create safer environments, which enable economic development, growth and attract investments.” The ministry maintains ongoing partnerships with different stakeholders – from business, researchers, academics, community policing forums and labour unions to NGOs who give insights which have assisted in policy formulations and practical programmes. “In fact, our approach as government is not premised along an impression that we are experts who know better; rather, we see them as equal partners in helping us address the challenge confronting us, which is to ensure that South Africans are and feel safe,” he said. “In our efforts of creating a police service that is professional, accountable, transparent and responsive, we also shared and discussed the Green Paper on Policing.” The meeting also covered the challenges that the South African Police Service is currently grappling with, including corruption and poor conduct of police officers. Mthethwa said it should not be a government-only responsibility to tackle crime – and such partnerships have enabled police management to better grasp and understand some of the key issues faced by police. “We are under no illusion that there are quick fix solutions to policing challenges in South Africa,” he said. “We do believe that over the last year, we have begun to put in place processes that are not only yielding some successes, but will also become the building blocks for the police service we envisage.” The minister and the partners agreed to cement these engagements through ongoing interactions, which will include a development of a practical programme with clear time frames, sharing of information and best practices.

For Self-Driving Systems, Infrastructure and In… Tags:#Autonomous#B2B#driverless#EDIT#featured#modular#OSVehicle#Self-Driving#top IT Trends of the Future That Are Worth Paying A… Break the Mold with Real-World Logistics AI and… OSVehicle, a modular car startup and an alumnus of our sister Readwrite Labs accelerator, has unveiled a self-driving concept called EDIT. The car is aimed at the B2B market and could be a route into affordable autonomous ride-sharing and delivery services.For brands looking to design a unique car for their brand, EDIT has a lot to offer. It is a white-label product, meaning brands can slap their logos on the exterior and change the interior of the car to make it fit for purpose.‘EDIT’ Self-Driving Car by OSVehicle from OSVehicle on Vimeo.An example of this could be a food delivery service outfitting the back of the car with an oven, to keep food warm while in transit. Domino’s has already done this with own delivery vehicle, the DXP, though that still requires a driver.OSVehicle is also making all of the code open source, allowing developers to change and improve the self-driving software. Developers may be able to create apps that work with OSVehicle’s software, streamlining the experience.“We see the potential of a unified modular vehicle for the future of mobility as a service, that will allow car fleets last 10X longer under heavy usage conditions like car and ride sharing and enable hardware upgrade of self-driving, connected car technologies seamlessly,” said Tin Hang, CEO of OSVehicle.See Also: New study shows just a few driverless cars help ease trafficThe startup is backed by Y Combinator and has been working on EDIT for a year now. It is not OSVehicle’s first venture into modular cars, in 2013 it launched the Tabby, which was sold as a car anyone could build in an hour.EDIT is more impressive in its scope, but there’s still no details on the price and slim details on how much brands can change and add to the vehicle.

After another disappointing season of the IPL where they find themselves out of contention for the playoffs, Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore are now looking to end the season on a high against Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last match. While Kohli and AB de Villiers, the two stalwarts at RCB did everything they could to salvage RCB’s campaign this year, the team as a whole failed to produce the desired results. But it hasn’t dented the spirits of the players, just not yet!The camaraderies between Virat and AB is well known and since they came together at RCB 8 years ago, they have been the most prolific batting pair at the franchise. But since Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis was bought by RCB at last year’s auction, there also have been reports of Kohli and Stoinis sharing a strong friendship.In this context when RCB insider and video-jockey ‘Mr. Nags’ asked whether Marcus Stoinis’ arrival at RCB has dented his brotherhood with AB, Kohli quipped that the bond between him and AB was as strong like ‘Ram-Lakhan’.During a fun chat, Mr. Nags joked by saying: “After Stoinis has come, there seems to be a big break in this relationship…”Kohli cut him short by saying: “AB and I are like Ram-Lakhan. We are brothers. No one can break our friendship. Stoinis is another great guy and a great human being but AB and I are on a different dimension. It’s like we connect on a different level. You can’t understand that.”advertisementEarlier, Virat and AB had posted a heartfelt message directed towards their fans for supporting them throughout a disappointing IPL 2019.”This has to be a special message for you all because even after three hours of a game being washed out, you still sit in the stadium and give us the loudest cheer when we walk out to bat. It’s special and it’s always going to be special in our hearts and minds. Thank you for being the best fans that you are,” Virat Kohli said.RCB face Sunrisers Hyderabad at their home ground in Bengaluru tonight and will look to sign off with a win.Also Read | Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers thank ‘incredible’ RCB fans in heartfelt video messageAlso Read | IPL 2019, Playoff Scenarios: 3 teams to battle it out for final berth
TagsOpinionAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say Nabil Fekir Q&A: Real Betis star on season start, Rubi & Europeby Carlos Volcanoa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveWhile Real Betis have stumbled in the first weeks of the season, Nabil Fekir is happy with how he’s settled. We caught up with the midfielder to discuss his first impressions… Question: Well… to begin with, thank you very much for welcoming LaLiga to your new home, here at Real Betis. First of all, welcome to LaLiga, Nabil, it’s a pleasure that you are here. What attracted you to LaLiga?Answer: Well, everyone knows this championship, it’s one of the best championships in the world and coming here to play was something I was really looking forward to from the very beginning and well, now I have been able to make that challenge come true.Q: What did you see in Real Betis’ project that brought you here?A: I had a meeting with the directing board and it went well, they explained me the project they had and that they wanted to be on the top of the table, and also take a ticket to Europe next season, I liked that and I did not hesitate one second. Q: How do you see the team now, not having had a perfect start?A: Frankly, we have a great team. It is true that in the two first games, the results were not the expected but there are new players and a new coach and a new technical staff. We need to let time go by so that everyone learns to get to know each other and learn to work together and I hope that we do that very soon. Q: Before the interview we spoke about Sevilla, a very sunny, hot city, very attractive to live in. What do you think about your new home?A: I like it very much, frankly, it’s very, very good. It is true that it is a bit hotter than in France but it’s a pleasure to be here. It makes me happy. This is a calm city, there are many fans and it is a pleasure to see that so many people are involved with the club. Q: Have you had the time to visit around the city a bit?A: Yes, I have, and as I said, it’s a nice city, very calm, small and very comfortable to live in. Q: How did you adapt to the club and how did they welcome you here?A: To be honest, the welcome to the club was really, really good. They all welcomed me very well: the players, the board and the technical staff. They all did their best so that everything worked out well and it’s great they put so much effort in making a player feel good. Q: We have already talked about the first two games of the season, that left a bitter taste, but you all showed a good level. What’s there to improve in the team?A: We can improve it all, as I have said, this is the beginning of the season and I hope that the team is able to play together, finding the automatisms needed and that we are on a good mood. I don’t have any doubts on the way we train and I know that there’s great quality so I hope that we start winning from Saturday on and that the machine starts working perfectly.Q: Back there we can see the Benito Villamarín, how do you feel the support of Real Betis fans?A: As I said previously, they are amazing fans. We need them and we will need them all throughout the season. It’s now our turn to do everything we have to do so that they are happy and everyone is satisfied. Q: You have played under Rubi and you have completed the pre-season with him, you know him a bit better now. What have you learnt from him? What is he asking from you?A: He asks for me to play with freedom. We are working on the tactics and the positions. He is a new coach and that is brand-new for us. But, so far, everything’s going well and we home that we continue working in the same way we are doing now. We are working well and that’s the important thing. Q: Individually, you have shown a great level and you have marveled the world of Spanish football with your good game against Real Valladolid and your superb goal at Camp Nou. How are you feeling?A: I am feeling very well, I am happy here. Furthermore, the most important thing is the team, not me as an individual. We are a team and the most important thing is that the team wins and that things go well, but anyway, I am going to do everything possible to give my best for this club. Q: Can you tell us more about the goal you scored at Camp Nou?A: We recovered the ball upfront, after, Sergio gave it on to Loren and then Loren gave me a through pass and I put the ball where I had to put it to’ be able to score.Q: When you scored, you seemed relieved, is that a correct feeling?A:No, I was not stressed out, but obviously I like to score goals, especially being an offensive player as I am. It’s always nice to score to gain confidence but as I said, I am not the most important thing. The team is the most important thin and if the team is going well, I will be fine. Q: What do you think is the team’s goal for the season?A: The goal for the season is that we do well on the pitch, that we are focused and on a good mood, and that we can have the chance to fight for the upper spots of the table and to return to Europe, because we have a group with great quality and that is the goal we have set at the beginning of the season. Q: We have talked about Europe, I imagine that’s a dream for the team, playing in Europe and, if possible in the Champions League, right?A: Well, that will be complicated, but we are going to give our best. We have to be ambitious and I believe all players here are ambitious and that we are all eager to play at the highest level, and the highest level is in Europe and we are going to give our all to achieve it. Q: We all know that Real Betis have an astonishing midfield: Canales, Guardado, William Carvalho, Tello and yourself… How do you connect with each other and how do you play together?A: We understand each other well, as you said, it’s a high-level midfield, with great players and in a great club and now, I will have been here for a month already, we are starting to get to know each other well and everything is going better and better. Q: Joaquin is probably the most charismatic player at Real Betis and he is a club legend. How is he personally and as a player?A: He is very good, I have no complaints. He gives us his good humor and it is important to have someone like him on the team that gives his support to everyone. He has a good spirit and the mood you always have to have and in spite of being a 38-year-old he still has great quality and you can see that on the pitch. Q: Let’s go back to talking about your way of playing. We can see that it has maybe varied a bit from Lyon to Betis, because it seems as though here you have more freedom to do whatever you want and to move around freely. Is that so?A: Well, in Lyon I had a lot of freedom too, but I had been a long time there and I needed new challenges. I came here with great ambition and they paid a high amount for me and so I will give my all to show the level that they are expecting from me.Q: How do you explain the fans of Real Betis the that the team will have on the pitch under Rubi and after the great signings of Borja Iglesias and yourself?A: Well the is based on the possession. We try to hurt the opponents and we use the spaces in the best way possible with Borja upfront, intriguing them with the attackers. I hope that we can already express everything we have on the pitch.Q: Now, in LaLiga you have met many teammates from Les Bleus: Griezmann, Dembélé, Varane. Lemar, Umtiti… it seems as though LaLiga is in vogue in France. A: Yes, that’s good. As I said, this is a very attractive championship that attracts the greatest players and I hope that it continues being as it5 is and that we always have great players in this championship. Q: I imagine that the people in the club have told you about the great rivalry there is between Sevilla FC and Real Betis, how do you see Sevilla FC?A: It is true that it is the derby, but we have to take it game after game and I try to think about the present moment. This is game after game and we will already think about preparing the game against them in the week of ther derby. We will do our best to win that game. Q: Have they already explained you that the city is divided between the red and the green colours in the derby days?A: Yes, they have told me something about it, but there is nothing better than just seeing things by yourself and as I said, I am at ease, there are many games before the derby and we are preparing them, when we get to the derby week, we will focus on that game. Q: What would be the dreamt result for you in both derbies? A: The most important thing is to win. As we say in France, you don’t play a derby, you win a derby, so the most important thing is that we play a good game and that we bring it home. Q: To finish, What’s the coolest or funniest thing that happened to you ever since you arrived at Real Betis?A: Ever since I arrived at Betis… I think it was the hazing in the stage in Mexico, when they made me sing.
