first_imgThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now reports that young people may be more susceptible to becoming critically ill from the coronavirus than previously thought.Recently there has been a number of coronavirus cases involving young people who show severe symptoms.New reports from the CDC show that 40% of those hospitalized with COVID-19 are between the ages of 20 and 54.Dr. Steve Cobb, the Chief Medical Officer at Centura Denver Medical Group, says it’s unknown why the number of cases in that group has grown, but he suspects younger cases are becoming critical as the number of total cases surge. But he also points to reports that some young people are not practicing social distancing guidelines urged by the CDC.Some cases involving young people include, Jack Allard of Ridgewood, New Jersey  who is in a medically induced coma more than a week after contracting COVID-19. He’s breathing with the help of a respirator and awaiting approval to try a potentially life-saving drug called Remdesivir. In Georgia a 12-year-old girl is reported to be doing much better after she was hooked to a ventilator and fighting for her life.On Tuesday, California announced the first death of a COVID-19 patient younger than 18 years old in the United States.Cobb said that more testing is needed to be done so health officials can understand the virus.The CDC says the greatest risk still remains for the older population, and those with underlying diseases. Continue to follow the CDC guidelines to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.last_img read more

first_imgGhana youth striker Ebenezer Assifuah  is delighted with his recent performance for his club FC Sion in Switzerland.The youngster took just three minutes to score the opening goal for FC Sion while another Ghanaian midfielder Ishmael Yartey put up an outstanding display in their 3-0 hammering of Luzern in the Swiss Super League.The ex-Liberty professionals striker, who has been influential for the lower division side, was thrilled with his performances so far but revealed he struggled with life in his first months at the club.”Things were not going on well then. But now, I am used to the terrain here and I’m coping with the intensity of the games,” Assifuah said on Asempa FM Sports.”Initially when I came to FC Sion, I was asked to play in the team B. I wasn’t happy with that because I performed well at the World Cup and deserved to be with the senior team. But with hard training and commitment, I have been promoted quickly to the senior team.”The 2013 Under-20 goal king award winner added that his inability to speak with the Swiss Language is his major hindrance now and finds himself reduced in coping with the players and coaches. “I am struggling with the (French) Language. I can’t effectively communicate with the players and coaches and that has been my worry for now. Happy to learn the language fast.” The 20-year-old has scored twice in succession which has seen his club occupying the 6th position in the 10-team Swiss league.last_img read more

Beginning in 2016 at the Summer Olympics in Rio, Biles set the American record for most gold medals in women’s gymnastics at a single Games with four. If the five total medals she won in Rio weren’t big enough, she also became the first female gymnast to be Team USA’s flag bearer in the closing ceremonies. Biles took all of 2017 off to rest — although she did compete on Dancing with the Stars, in which she finished fourth — before returning to the National Team for the 2018 National Championships. Biles finished first in every event. At the 2018 World Champioships, just days after passing a kidney stone in a Qatar emergency room, Biles helped the U.S. team to a first-place finish in record margin and also won an individual gold in the all-around competition and vault, giving her 20 career medals at world championships, a record among for female gymnasts.Join DAZN to watch The Superstars of GymnasticsNow, Biles will be showcasing her talents with some of the world’s most elite gymnasts in The Superstars of Gymnastics at the 02 in London this Saturday.What is The Superstars of Gymnastics?The Superstars of Gymnastics is a new showcase event of the very best talents in gymnastics the world has to offer. Headlined by Biles and Britain’s two-time Olympic gold medalist Max Whitlock, who will serve as all-star judges with Amy Tickler and Laurent Landi following their own individual performances, the event will feature the likes of triple Commonwealth Games gold medallist Ellie Black of Canada and German trio Fabian Hambüchen, a gold medallist on horizontal bars at Rio 2016, double Olympic silver medallist Marcel Nguyen and four-time World Cup medallist Elisabeth Seitz, among others.Athletes have the freedom to devise and perform their own routines. The four all-star judges will score out of 10 based on flair, creative choreography, execution and engagement. Each apparatus will have its own leaderboard with a winner per piece to be determined by the highest combined score. Gymnasts can double their score for a maximum of 80 points on one apparatus by hitting the Golden Buzzer before performing their routine.The event consists of two sessions, with Biles and Whitlock performing in each.How to watch The Superstars of Gymnastics The Superstars of Gymnastics will be streamed live on DAZN in the United States and Canada on Saturday, March 23.

Powered by Firework A couple of days ago, Australian cricket team’s rising sensation Marnus Labuschagne was personally commended by the one and only Sachin Tendulkar. The legendary icon of Indian cricket was impressed by the young Aussie’s performance in Test cricket, and drew similarities with himself over any of his compatriots. Now after receiving such honour, Marnus Labuschagne returns his courtesy.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty ImagesSachin Tendulkar was recently asked about any present cricketer that he could relate himself with, and Team India’s hall of fame chose Labuschagne to be the one. Remembering the 25 year old’s brilliant performance in the Ashes last year, Tendulkar specifically praised the young Aussie’s footwork.“His footwork is so precise. So he would be the one I would say,” Tendulkar told reporters.Advertisement Earlier today, Cricket Australia’s digital content team cricket.com.au uploaded a video on their official Twitter handle, where Labuschagne was asked about his reaction to Tendulkar’s comments. Following the news of himself getting applaud from none other than the Little Master, Labuschagne was overwhelmed about it. Check it out below-“It was pretty amazing, it’s one that definitely when I saw it I was quick to read it and it really hit me. Amazing words from someone of that calibre. I was very grateful for his words and just stoked really,” Labuschagne said in the clip.Since his debut in Red ball cricket back in 2018 against Pakistan, Labuschagne has maintained a stunning consistency in the format. With 14 international appearances in Test cricket, the young all rounder has scored a total of 1459 runs with a batting average of 63.43, which includes four centuries and eight half centuries, along with 12 wickets.The brilliant Test records and an amazing 353 run haul in the 2019 Ashes earned Labuschagne his first limited overs debut against India in the January ODI series. He scored 46 and 54 runs in the second and third ODIs respectively. Despite the Aussies losing the series 2-1 to the hosts, Labuschagne sealed his no. 4 position in the batting order comfortably.Currently leading the top scorers list of the ICC World Test Championships, Labuschagne will be seen in action in the upcoming ODI series against South Africa starting on 29th February.Also read-Sachin Tendulkar picks an Australian batsman when asked which current player is most similar to him!See which New Zealand batsman Shardul Thakur just referred to as ‘god of legside’ Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgMy year begins with the opening of the hill, usually well before January 1st. Opening Day marks of my passage of time.While I claim I do not make New Years resolutions, the case could be made I do. I set goals for my skiing every year. The first few days I ski, I do a bit of self-evaluation and often go out with a senior ski school trainer to figure out how I can improve.The changes are often little, but occasionally substantial.The most substantial change has been my position on my skis. Over the years my stance moved from “forward” to very centered. We were talking about this the other day when one of my friends said they heard Ingemar Stenmark, by far the winning-est World Cup racer ever, trained with his DIN setting at the lowest possible. This kept his movements light, incremental and he remained centered on the ski. If only we all could ski so evenly.Think about the progression of learning to ski. The motion remains essentially the same from the first day to the last.We start in a gliding wedge. To turn, we pressure the uphill ski and ride it around until it moves across the fall line and then step on to the other ski and ride it around. Repeat. And repeat. We glide down the slope at an even pace and with great control.We center our balance by standing on the turning or outside ski.As our balance (our confidence) grows, our stance narrows and we match our skis (parallel) and begin to move both skis into the turn at the same time. Not needing a wedged ski as a set of training wheels, we stand balanced on and pressure the outside ski. For some this takes a day. For some a week.But the turning motion remains the same.The trick in skiing remains taking the initial motion– the step onto the uphill ski and stand centered on it through the turn– and maintain that same early initiation in all the turns we make and in all the different terrain we encounter.The earlier we stand and balance on that turning ski, the more control we exertover our spped and direction. Stand on it late into  the turn and we must push hard to slow down at the end of every turn. Stand on it early and we maintain an even speed down the hill.My work for this yeaar (not a New Year Resolution) is to initiate early and remain centered in all terrain. To ride my ski and not to push.Simple.I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and the best to you in the New Year. Or new millennium if that is your belief. On December 21, according to some Mayan calendar readings, the world was to end.  As I write this, several days later, the world seems just fine.One shamanistic friend of mine explained the upcoming “event” a little differently. The interpretation he put forward posited the end of the calendar indicated the start of a new age, a new world. The world as we know it would end, but the “end” would shift the world to a new paradigm, not annihilation.I’m accepting his interpretation. The promised apocalypse fell in the middle of a storm cycle that produced endless days of 20 to 40 cm snowfall. The alpine firs at the top of the mountain stood like an army of snow ghosts waiting for the next apocalyptic frontal attack. Rocks have been banished ‘til April. And the bit of blue sky showing between snow showers a few days ago was greeted with smiles that only became broader when it started to snow again. Snowing hard.On the dawning of the first blue sky morning in over two weeks, we’d collected over 13 feet of snow and boasted over 8 feet of settled base.Merry Christmas. Pow. Pow. Pow. Happy New Year.A little over halfway through the cycle, one early morning I ran into a couple of friends in Freshies, a local coffee shop. They were dressed in civies. I was dressed in ski gear, season pass around my neck and clearly heading to the hill. Their shop’s door has a sign delineating their hours. At the bottom is the bold notation, “If it snows 15cm or more, we ski and will open at noon or one depending on the conditions.”  True aficionados.They looked bagged. Totally exhausted.“You’re not going up this morning?””We have to work.” Pause. “And a day off will be good.”Even the hardcore were taking a break from the endless snow.Now that’s a new millennium I can live with.last_img read more

first_imgThe wardrobe sensations were mixed. On the one hand and fundamentally, relief, for not having to travel to Milan. The thanks to the President for having stepped forward before anyone else and insuring your health above results or the economy has been imprinted on many team members. On the other hand, a great disappointment for missing what was another unique event for a group of players and a coaching staff who wanted to continue enlarging the legend after the feat of uploading to Ajax.In the face of uncertainty, Bordalás chose to give a physical and psychological respite. A few days of vacation for back to work next monday afternoon. Then the plan will be evaluated knowing that it is difficult to know the date of the competition return. What should have been a historic day for Getafe turned into a strange day and without substance. Getafe He was to play this Thursday at the legendary Guiseppe Meazza against Inter. It was his sixth matchup against a European champion and another chance to continue making history. But the Coronavirus left the sleep deferred and Geta went from glamor to silence. A training session behind closed doors and without the possibility of interviews, a rehearsal without a play to play, because not only had he not left in Milan, but LaLiga will not be played on Sunday either.last_img read more
