first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter El Gobernador Wolf describe planes para crear un cuerpo civil estatal contra el coronavirus para apoyar los esfuerzos de recuperación de la COVID-19 este otoño May 06, 2020center_img Press Release,  Public Health A medida que Pennsylvania planea reabrir la economía de manera segura y recuperarse de la COVID-19, el Gobernador Tom Wolf anunció la creación de un cuerpo civil estatal contra el coronavirus, una iniciativa de servicio público que apoyará los esfuerzos este otoño para aumentar las pruebas y el rastreo de contactos y brindar nuevas oportunidades cruciales de trabajo en el sector de la salud pública.“Nuestra mayor prioridad sigue siendo proteger la salud y la seguridad públicas, pero también debemos prever la manera de abordar las necesidades futuras. Para poder reabrir nuestra economía en su máximo potencial, necesitaremos aumentar nuestra capacidad de contener este virus altamente transmisible”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “El cuerpo civil estatal contra el coronavirus servirá como un programa de servicio público que ampliará nuestra capacidad de realizar el rastreo de contactos y las pruebas, y movilizará a los residentes de Pennsylvania para contener la COVID-19”.Los constantes esfuerzos medidos y prudentes de la Administración Wolf para reabrir Pennsylvania dependerán de nuestra capacidad de ampliar la disponibilidad de las pruebas de COVID-19 y desarrollar una infraestructura robusta para realizar la vigilancia y el rastreo de contactos. Este trabajo permitirá a los residentes de Pennsylvania supervisar y responder eficazmente a los nuevos casos y cuantificar los esfuerzos de mitigación. Ayudará a nuestros esfuerzos de reapertura por etapas al tiempo que asegurará que el sistema sanitario no se vea saturado y que la transmisión de la enfermedad continúe disminuyendo.Dado que Pennsylvania planea incrementar estos esfuerzos en los próximos meses, el cuerpo civil estatal contra el coronavirus llevará estos esfuerzos a la práctica al realizar lo siguiente:Asociarse con agencias locales de salud pública, entidades comunitarias y la comunidad sin fines de lucro para expandir las pruebas existentes en Pennsylvania y las iniciativas de rastreo de contactos;Aprovechar los recursos adicionales para financiar iniciativas de pruebas y rastreo de contactos;Explorar maneras creativas de reclutar a residentes de Pennsylvania con experiencia en atención médica y salud pública para apoyar esta iniciativa; yCoordinar los recursos existentes desplegados por la comunidad, que incluyen a los enfermeros de salud comunitaria y los departamentos de salud de los condados que actualmente realizan pruebas y rastreo de contactos en todo el estado.El cuerpo civil estatal contra el coronavirus también ofrecerá una oportunidad única para que Pennsylvania reclute y capacite a los trabajadores desplazados y desempleados a causa de la COVID-19 en el servicio público con la función de rastrear contactos, lo que abordaría las necesidades económicas y de salud de Pennsylvania.Con el fin de fomentar esta nueva fuerza laboral, el cuerpo civil estatal contra el coronavirus hará lo siguiente:Involucrará a los socios en el sistema de desarrollo de la fuerza laboral, los programas actuales asociados de capacitación sanitaria y los programas de AmeriCorps para desarrollar y fortalecer una fuerza laboral de salud pública en todo el estado;Aprovechará los recursos existentes de desarrollo de la fuerza laboral para reclutar, capacitar y conectar a la fuerza laboral de salud pública con oportunidades laborales; yInvolucrará a los empleadores de salud pública y atención médica para conectar a los trabajadores capacitados con oportunidades profesionales a largo plazo.“Todos hemos hecho muchos sacrificios durante esta crisis y todos compartimos el deseo de avanzar hacia un futuro más saludable, más seguro y más próspero”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “A través de esta iniciativa de servicio público, en los próximos meses los residentes de Pennsylvania tendrán oportunidades de unirse a un esfuerzo colectivo para garantizar que resurgiremos de esta pandemia como una comunidad más fuerte”.Ver esta página en inglés.last_img read more

Pellegrini silent on City link

first_img He added: “Once I have finished here in Malaga – Malaga have qualified for Europe – and completed the match we will see where my future lies. “But now I will only discuss my present position with Malaga.” City have just completed a two-game post-season tour in the United States where they twice beat Chelsea. City midfielder Gareth Barry is aware of Pellegrini’s pedigree. He told Sky Sports News: “I don’t know too much about him but people who do know him and who have played with him have spoken highly of him so that’s good.” The Malaga coach, who has already confirmed he will be leaving the Primera Division side after next weekend’s final game of the season, is focused on Sunday night’s penultimate match with Deportivo La Coruna and helping Malaga qualify for Europe. He told a press conference: “I have answered this many times (questions about City). Once we have played Deportivo we will see about my future and where I am going. I haven’t signed any contract yet.” Press Associationcenter_img Manuel Pellegrini, the favourite to succeed Roberto Mancini as manager of Manchester City, has refused to talk about a move to the Etihad Stadium.last_img read more

Hazard spares Chelsea blushes

first_img Press Association Chelsea continued to press, with Oscar smashing the ball high into the Shed End from 18 yards after a quick break. The hosts took the lead on the stroke of half-time. Hazard cut in from the left and drilled in a low shot, which Myhill did well to push away at full strength. However, Ridgewell dithered instead of hacking the loose ball away and Eto’o snuck in on the blind side again to slot past the keeper into the far corner. Eto’o, who scored a similar opportunist goal against Schalke off the goalkeeper’s error in midweek, wheeled away in celebration and was booked for his troubles. Chelsea opened up West Brom at the start of the second half with a wonderful sweeping 30-yard pass from Oscar which floated over to Hazard, charging into the area down the left. However, the Belgian’s first touch was heavy, which pushed the ball on through to a grateful Myhill. West Brom were almost level on 56 minutes when Morgan Amalfitano’s deep cross from the right was headed against the outside of the far post by Long. The visitors did equalise on the hour, though. A corner from the right was met with a power header from Gareth McAuley, which Cech did well to beat away at point-blank range. As the ball looped up in the six-yard box, with the Chelsea keeper on the floor in the goal, Long climbed highest through the bodies to nod in his first of the season. Mourinho reacted by changing Lampard for striker Demba Ba. However, it was the visitors who went ahead on 68 minutes. The Baggies broke quickly down the left, with Ridgewell in support of the counter attack and he fed Sessegnon at the edge of the penalty area. The Benin forward sidestepped his marker and sent a low shot goalwards, which squirmed through Cech’s grasp and into the net. Mourinho made his final throw of the dice when Azpilicueta was replaced by John Obi Mikel and Juan Mata came on for Oscar. Myhill denied Branislav Ivanovic with a smart save down to his right as Chelsea pressed for an equaliser before Willian headed over. However, West Brom were left crestfallen in the fourth minute of stoppage time when Reid was adjudged to have pushed over Ramires. Hazard slotted past Myhill to snatch Chelsea a draw. Eden Hazard scored a controversial penalty deep into stoppage time to rescue a point for Chelsea from a 2-2 draw against West Brom and save Jose Mourinho from a first Barclays Premier League home defeat as Blues boss. Chelsea, who lost at Newcastle last weekend, had gone in front just before half-time through another poachers goal from Samuel Eto’o after Liam Ridgewell delayed his clearance. However, Steve Clarke’s side where level on the hour through Shane Long’s header and then Chelsea keeper Petr Cech allowed Stephane Sessegnon’s shot to squirm into the net, which had looked enough to take all three points until the late drama. Mourinho, who had not lost any of his previous 65 Premier League home games in two spells as Blues manager – winning 51, recalled Hazard to the side after leaving the Belgian midfielder out against Schalke when a lost passport saw him return late for training. Cesar Azpilicueta was again preferred at left-back to England defender Ashley Cole. The visitors, with Clarke taking on his old club, broke on eight minutes but Morgan Amalfitano dragged his shot wide. Chelsea were awarded a free-kick on 14 minutes after Oscar was upended by Claudio Yacob. Frank Lampard smacked the ball straight into Youssouf Mulumbu, with Long racing away on to the rebound down the left flank before he was tripped by Lampard, which resulted in a yellow card for the Chelsea midfielder. The Heavens opened again, saturating the already wet surface which made close control difficult. Yacob had tested the patience of referee Andre Mariner once too often after clipping Hazard’s heels and went into the book on 28 minutes. Oscar took the free-kick, some 25 yards out on the right, and curled the ball up over the wall, but Baggies keeper Boaz Myhill was alert to tip it over the crossbar. The Belgian midfielder, recalled to the side after being left out of the midweek Champions League win over Schalke for disciplinary reasons, converted after referee Andre Mariner pointed to the spot for what looked like a fair shoulder challenge by Steven Reid on Ramires. It was rough justice on West Brom, who had looked set for another memorable away victory after winning at Manchester United in September. last_img read more

The Ultimate Super Smash Bros Character Guide Lucario

first_imgWho Are They?Lucario is a Pokemon, which is a pretty safe guess when you can’t figure out what franchise a particular furry monster is from. Like Mewtwo (and Meowth) in the anime it’s intelligent enough to speak words other than its own name. It’s like a stoic and honorable master fighter, and its main trait is channeling its own energy, as well as sensing the energy of others, through its glowing aura.Smash HistoryThe gap between Melee and Brawl was so long that two entire new generations of Pokemon went by. So instead of getting a Ruby and Sapphire character we skipped right to Diamond and Pearl with Lucario. In the process we even lost a Pokemon, Mewtwo, as Lucario received many of its moves without being considered a clone. Even when Mewtwo returned though Lucario stayed put in every Smash Bros. game since.What Looks New in Ultimate?Lucario is a tricky character in competitive play because of how its aura mechanic works. At the beginning of a match, Lucario is just average. But as it takes more damage it becomes stronger. So when it’s the most vulnerable, it’s the most dangerous, killing with crazy powerful aura spheres and force palms. Playing Lucario is risky with with high potential pay-off. This is still the case in Ultimate, which seems to retain the most extreme range of aura from Smash Wii U/3DS.Our Hopes?Lucario has neither the nostalgic appeal of classic Pokemon like Pikachu nor the novelty of new Pokemon like Incineroar. Plus Mewtwo being back in the cast makes Lucario’s moveset not quite as original as it could’ve been. But as a fan of crazy fighting shenanigans, I hope we see top Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players pull off fantastic feats with smart use of aura.Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available now. Read our review of this majestic video game pageant.
