first_img July 07, 2020 SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Legislators Join Gov. Wolf in Call for Maskingcenter_img Press Release,  Public Health State and federal officials joined Governor Tom Wolf in reminding Pennsylvanians to wear a mask to reduce the likelihood of spreading COVID-19.“As we increasingly resume public activities in our commonwealth, we need to remain vigilant about taking precautions, especially wearing a mask that covers our noses and mouths while around other people,” said Gov. Wolf. “This is an easy, yet important action that has been shown by research to reduce the spread of COVID-19.”The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has advised people to wear a cloth mask to help slow the spread of COVID-19. The CDC’s website offers directions for easy-to-make masks, with patterns for sew and no-sew masks made from everyday household materials.“Public health experts continue to recommend mask-wearing in public, and ongoing research continues to support that recommendation,” said U.S. Sen. Bob Casey. “When you wear a mask, you are sending a clear message to others in your community that you care about them and their well-being as much as your own. I know that if we each do our part, we will beat this virus and be able to start safely rebuilding together.”“Since late March, I have been making the case for Pennsylvanians to wear masks when they venture out,” said U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey. “As the commonwealth continues to re-open, mask wearing has taken on increased significance, as studies continue to affirm that masks helps slow the spread of the coronavirus. Put simply, wearing a mask is an important step that we, as Pennsylvanians, can take to protect one another – as my mask protects you, and your mask protects me.”“The simple act of wearing a mask is how we protect everyone’s health and the fastest course to restoring our economy,” said state Sen. Pam Iovino. “Wearing a mask demonstrates concern for the welfare of all of us and how we get through this crisis together.”“Wearing a mask is vital to protect the health and safety of our community,” said state Rep. Melissa Shusterman. “As our state moves back to the green phase, it is the most important step we can take to preserve the progress we’ve made as a state through this crisis. As Pennsylvanians, we all need to participate in wearing masks to care for our neighbors, and so that our economy and state can continue to make a strong recovery.”Sec. of Health Dr. Rachel Levine signed an order mandating mask-wearing on July 1. It remains in effect. Frequently Asked Questions about the mask-wearing order can be found here.Ver esta página en español.last_img read more

Leicester City come from behind to subdue Burnley 4-2

first_imgLeicester came from behind to beat Burnley 4-2 in another high-scoring Premier League clash as Brendan Rodgers’ side start season with back-to-back victories. The last time Leicester produced back-to-back wins at the beginning of a Premier League season, they ended it as champions. Thanks to seven goals in their opening matches, the Foxes are back at the top of the tree again and while even the most optimistic Leicester fan would doubt their ability to repeat the fabulous story of 2015-16, this was just the start Brendan Rodgers’ team needed after their poor post-lockdown form cost them a place in the Champions League. It was a double celebration for Rodgers, who registered his 100th win as a Premier League manager. Harvey Barnes delivered an outstanding display, scoring the equaliser and terrifying Burnley throughout. Chris Wood gave the injury-hit visitors a 10th-minute lead but after Barnes levelled, an own-goal from Erik Pieters and James Justin’s strike put Leicester in charge just after an hour. Jimmy Dunne pulled one back for Burnley on his top-flight debut but Dennis Praet’s sumptuous strike 11 minutes time settled it once and for all. Leicester will need to defend better than they did here to keep out Arsenal in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday and Manchester City in the league next Sunday. Wood could have had a hat-trick for Burnley: as well as his goal, the forward hit the post and shot straight at Kasper Schmeichel from close range. Despite missing key players Ben Mee, James Tarkowski, Jack Cork and Ashley Barnes, Burnley took the lead the 10th minute. Dwight McNeil found Charlie Taylor on the left and when the cross reached Wood at the far post, he outmuscled Justin and slammed the ball beyond Schmeichel. Leicester were convinced the forward was guilty of handling but after a VAR check, the ball was deemed to have hit Wood high enough on his arm for the goal to be legal. The Foxes rolled with the punch and levelled 10 minutes later. Loading… Barnes swept a crossfield pass beyond the Burnley backline and into Jamie Vardy’s path. The forward found Timothy Castagne, who squared for Barnes to stroke the ball into the corner from 15 yards. Barnes then drew a fine save from Nick Pope with an angled effort tin the 33rd minute, and six minutes later Phil Bardsley produced a goal-saving challenge as Barnes tore towards the far post to meet Praet’s low cross. Sean Dyche’s men suffered another injury blow soon afterward when, following an earlier challenge from Justin, Robbie Brady was unable to continue and was replaced by Pieters. Pieters might have wished he had stayed on the bench. Five minutes into the second half, after Youri Tielemans had found Castagne on the right, Pieters moved over to block the cross only for the ball to hit his heel and fly past the helpless Nick Pope at the near post. Barnes continued to cause problems for Burnley and another charge into the box brought a corner, yet Leicester were lucky to stay ahead just before the hour mark when Wood shot weakly at Schmeichel after Jay Rodriguez teed him up 10 yards out. Moments later, Burnley paid the ultimate price. Praet burst away down the right and found Perez inside the box. The Spaniard rolled the ball to the far post where Justin tapped it in for his first Premier League goal. read also:Former Nigeria coach Oliseh raises alarm over Ndidi’s new role at Leicester City But Leicester switched off again at the back when McNeil swung over a free-kick and Dunne barged his way through the crowd to head it past Schmeichel. The home side quickly restored their two-goal, however, with another goal of high quality. Barnes escaped yet again on the left and squared the ball for Praet, who used Castagne’s run outside him as a decoy before lashing the ball beyond Pope at his near post from 20 yards. There was still time for Wood to hit the post with Schmeichel beaten but Leicester’s slick attacking football merited the victory.

Cricket News Virat Kohli, No.1 in cricket is now the most valuable celebrity brand in India

first_imgMumbai: Virat Kohli has topped the list of the most valuable celebrity brand in the country for the second year in a row, with an 18 percent increase in his brand value at USD 170.9 million in 2018, according to a report. The cricketer endorsed 24 brands as of November 2018, the global valuation and corporate finance advisors Duff & Phelps said in its fourth edition of the report on India’s most valuable celebrity brands on Thursday. He is followed by Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, who jumped a place higher from the last ranking, with a valuation of USD 102.5 million. She endorsed 21 brands as of November 2018.       The top two are the only celebrities with a valuation of over USD 100 million. The total value of the top 20 celebrity brands stands at USD 877 million, with the top 10 contributing more than 75 per cent of the total value. Endorsers such as Virat Kohli and Deepika Padukone have been structuring endorsement deals with an equity element, which in turns helps them maintain a long-term association with the brand and share the upside from the performance of the company, it said.    Read More | If I achieve half of what Sehwag did, I will be happy: Mayank Agarwal”The celebrity endorsement market in India has matured from vanilla endorsement deals to full-fledged partnerships through innovative routes such as equity deals and strategic partnerships… Millennial celebrities continue to be the first choice for brand endorsements as companies want to have a greater focus on the youth segment fuelled by demand in sectors such as e-commerce, retail, FMCG and smartphones, among others,” Duff & Phelps managing director and Asia Pacific leader for valuation services Varun Gupta said.   Read More | India to play 5 ODIs, 2 T20Is at home vs Australia in February-MarchBollywood actors Akshay Kumar and Ranveer Singh too improved their rankings by a place, to occupy the third and fourth position with a valuation of USD 67.3 million and USD 63 million, respectively. Actor Shah Rukh Khan slipped to the fifth place from the second position, with a valuation of USD 60.7 million. “While Bollywood celebrities dominate the rankings of the top 20 celebrities, sportspersons provide tough competition. Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni and PV Sindhu collectively contributed almost USD 241 million, which is over 27 per cent of the cumulative brand value of the top 20 celebrities pegged at USD 877 million,” Duff & Phelps managing director Aviral Jain said.       As per ESP Properties data, over the past decade celebrity-led endorsements increased in number from 650 in 2007 to 1,660 in 2017, representing a steady CAGR of 10 per cent. Further, TV ad spends with celebrity endorsers rose from Rs 1550 crore in 2007 to Rs 6660 crore in 2017 at a CAGR of 16.1 per cent.       TV ads with celebrity endorsers represented close to 24 per cent of the total TV ad spends in 2017, which represents a 5 per cent uptick from 2007. The report noted the rising trend of power couples, as brands can target each partner’s unique following and voice by tapping into a power couple’s reach and impact.       “The coming together of a power couple creates a larger platform that brands want to leverage to target the youth. This year, power couple Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma have endorsed around 40 brands together such as Head and Shoulders, Manyavar, Pepsi, Celkon, Boost, Audi, Fastrack,  Goinee, Wrogn and Polaroid,” it said.
