ADVERTISEMENT‘I remember Cesc being white by seeing the impact of the injury. We were shocked because Eduardo was our brother and when someone gets hurt, everyone gets hurt.AdvertisementAdvertisement‘I don’t know if it had an impact on the rest of the game, but for sure it was a turning point in our season.‘We’re all different, we all express our feelings in a different way.

Ian Wright names Bukayo Saka’s best position after Ashley Cole comparison

Ashley turned out to be one of the best full-backs in the world but this guy is better further forward.’Saka has 12 months to run on his existing deal at the Emirates and the Gunners are yet to make progress in negotiations over a new deal.The teenager’s representatives believe he deserves a deal that better represents his status as a first team player and Wright believes they are taking the right strategy, citing Callum Hudson-Odoi as proof of what can be earned. ‘He’s right him and his representatives to hold out as best they can because he’s the future of the club,’ continued Wright.‘They cannot afford to let a player like this leave, When you look at what Callum Hudson-Odoi has done and he’s a year younger. The contract he signed, Saka’s representatives will be saying: ‘Why should I sign for any less?’ ‘I believe he will sign but I do think him and his reps are doing the right thing by dragging it out to get the best deal they can. Arsenal is the right place for him at the moment.’MORE: Edu explains why Manchester United legend Paul Scholes was the toughest player he ever had to marklast_img read more

The most-loved NPD from our Instagram this year

first_img9. Barratt Mini BagsSweet-toothed scrollers loved the look of Barratt’s November launch, which saw the brand put classic sweet varieties into mini bags. The £1 multipacks contained Shrimps & Bananas, Jelly Beans, Mini Bears and Strawberry Milkshake Bottles. 3. Deliciously Ella Vegan Ready MealsShe’s one of the most prominent (and most followed) vegan influencers on social media, so it’s no surprise that the new ready meals from Deliciously Ella went down a storm on Insta. Our followers loved the look of the plant-based recipes, which included Sweet Potato & Black Bean Shepherd’s Pie and Cauliflower & Lentil Dahl. 2. Aunt Bessie’s Yorkshire BasesCashing in on the craze for Yorkshire pudding wraps, Aunt Bessie’s launched its frozen Yorkshire Bases in November. The likes flooded in and commenters expressed their excitement for making their own Yorkie creations at home, with one summing it up: ‘Aunt Bessie is a genius!’ 7. Jaffa Cakes NibblesJaffa Cakes took on a brand new form when McVitie’s launched Nibbles earlier this month. Instagram certainly approved of the treats, which are available in snack packs and share bags, with more than one commenter calling them a ‘game changer’. From crisps and confectionery to popcorn and plant-based, The Grocer’s Instagram features the most exciting launches coming to UK supermarkets before they land on shelves. Here are the top 10 products that had our followers double-tapping this year,10. Propercorn Microwaveable PopcornPropercorn claimed a UK first in October with its palm oil-free microwaveable popcorn, which launched in Sweet, Salted and Cinnamon flavours. Given the current hype around palm oil (catapulted into the mainstream by Iceland’s banned Christmas ad) it’s not surprising this product made our most-loved list. 4. Walkers Christmas CrispsAs can be expected, the ‘first ever’ Brussels sprout crisps from Walkers sparked some controversy on this post. ‘They have gone too far’, said one commenter, while another asked, ‘is it wrong we really want to try these?’ Sprouts aside, the other (less contentious) festive flavours included Pigs in Blankets and Turkey & Stuffing (swipe the picture below to see them). center_img 1.

In fact, more than 500 people showed their love for the new eggs and Twisted share bags, making it our most-loved post of 2018. 8. Fox’s Party MilkshakesContinuing the mini bag and milkshake themes, Fox’s new launch was also a hit on our account. The brand launched the strawberry & banana iced biscuits in October. 6. Mr Kipling Christmas rangeChristmas came early for Mr Kipling fans when we shared its festive offering in October. The new range included Raspberry & Vanilla Candy Cane Slices and a Chocolate & Caramel Reindeer Cake.  5. Linda McCartney’s Vegetarian PizzasThe latest offering from Linda McCartney’s stuck a chord with non-meat eaters on Instagram, making it our most commented post to date.

U.S. Senator Bob Casey and Physician General Dr. Levine Call on Legislators to Pass Non-Discrimination Protections (Round-up)

first_img Equality,  National Issues,  Non-discrimination,  Round-Up,  The Blog On Tuesday, U.S. Senator Bob Casey hosted a news conference in Pittston, Pennsylvania to address the need for non-discrimination legislation to be passed nationally and statewide. Pennsylvania’s Physician General Dr. Rachel Levine attended and participated in the senator’s conference.Governor Wolf and his administration have supported non-discrimination efforts and have urged the legislature to pass laws to end discrimination in housing and employment practices statewide. In April, the governor signed two executive orders to protect LGBT workers employed by the state and companies contracted by the state.“We must show that Pennsylvania is the place that William Penn envisioned when he founded our commonwealth on the principle that it is open, diverse, and inclusive for all people,” said Governor Wolf. “I call on the General Assembly to swiftly put legislation on my desk that ensures that people throughout the commonwealth – regardless of sexual orientation, gender expression or identity – are treated equally under Pennsylvania law.”Take a look at the coverage below:   SHARE  TWEET SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Times Leader: LGBT legislation all about equality, state and federal leaders say.“This has been a difficult year for the LGBT community,” [Dr. Rachel Levine] said. “On the heels of celebrations and congratulations of marriage equality just over a year ago, this year, 2016, has been tough.”… “It is clear the fight to end discrimination is not over,” Levine said. “These events are a clear call to action. This country must do more.”PA Homepage: Advocates not giving up anti-discrimination law fight“As the state legislature sees that more and more communities are coming together for fairness and equality that that will help them do the right thing when it comes to this legislation,” PA Physician General Dr. Rachel Levine said.Standard-Speaker: Casey calls for local pro-LGBT ordinancesU.S. Senator Bob Casey (podium) joined Pennsylvania’s Physician General Dr. Rachel Levine and Northeastern Pennsylvania Rainbow Alliance President Carl Halkyer in supporting and pushing for Pennsylvania’s statewide anti-discrimination ordinance on Tuesday, July 5th, at the Pittston Library.

Gov. Wolf Joins Legislative Black Caucus, Community Members at Clean Slate Event

first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter May 02, 2019 Criminal Justice Reform,  Press Release Pittsburgh, PA – Governor Tom Wolf will join members of the Legislative Black Caucus later today as it hosts a community event on how to take advantage of Pennsylvania’s new Clean Slate law to erase barriers to homeownership, college admission, and job opportunities by sealing past arrests or criminal records. The event runs from 4 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the Community Empowerment Association, 7120 Kelly St., Pittsburgh. Gov. Wolf will speak to attendees at 5 p.m.“Since taking office, I’ve aggressively pursued reforming our criminal justice system because it benefits everyone,” Gov. Wolf said. “Society does not benefit when it’s paying for mass incarceration. Reentrants do not benefit when they’re not given the opportunity to be productive members of society. Families do not benefit when one member can’t be a breadwinner because of a mistake made decades earlier.“The Clean Slate bill tackles some of the issues that excluded people with the ability to work from the workforce and I’m really grateful to the Legislative Black Caucus for organizing this event to help as many people as possible avail themselves of this new law.”Event participants include Duquesne Law, PennDOT, The Pennsylvania Board of Pardons, the Pennsylvania State Police, and the Clerk of Courts Office, as well as members of the Legislative Black Caucus.“Last year we passed the clean slate law, and it is already having a positive impact on individuals and our communities,” Rep. Ed Gainey said. “People make mistakes. We know this. This law gives folks who made mistakes a chance to succeed without the stigma of a minor conviction dragging them down. It is a privilege to have Gov. Wolf join us and help people get the second chance they deserve.”“Once a resident of Pennsylvania has done what was asked of them by a judge, there’s no reason that those with minor, nonviolent crimes should have the specter of that crime follow them and negatively impact their life as they try to get on the right track,” Rep. Stephen Kinsey said. “Clean slate has the potential to open countless doors that previously were slammed shut and locked for those individuals with criminal records. Allowing returning citizens this opportunity will benefit our state as a whole.”“Clean slate legislation was championed in broad, bipartisan fashion with Pennsylvanians’ best interests in mind,” Rep. Jordan Harris said. “Nobody wants to be judged by their worst day for the rest of their life. Those who have paid their debt to society need to have access to housing, economic and educational opportunities so they can continue down the right path in life. Clean slate is another step that provides them an opportunity which can lead to generational change for their family.”Pennsylvania was the first state to pass Clean Slate legislation. Since the law went into effect in late December, Community Legal Services, which is offering free legal service to people seeking to avail themselves of this program, indicated more than 8,000 people have reached out statewide for help; 1,500 of them in western Pennsylvania.Clean Slate expands criminal record sealing to include more types of offenses, including some first-degree misdemeanors, which can be sealed by filing petitions.Clean Slate also creates an automated computer process to seal arrests that did not result in convictions within 60 days, summary convictions after 10 years, and some second and third-degree misdemeanor convictions if there are no subsequent misdemeanor or felony convictions for a period of 10 years after the time of conviction.Once a record is sealed under Clean Slate, it can generally only be viewed by law enforcement entities (e.g. police, district attorneys, courts, etc.), employers who are required to consider records under federal law, and employers that use FBI background checks.Most employers, landlords, schools, and the general public will not have access to sealed records. But, unlike expunged records, sealed records are not destroyed.People started filing petitions to seal their records under Clean Slate on Dec. 26, 2018. Automatic sealing goes into effect June 28. More information is available at MyCleanStatePA.com.“Thank you to the Legislative Black Caucus for organizing this event, which will help guide applicants through the process of exploring Clean Slate,” Gov. Wolf said. “I promise that I will continue to look at meaningful criminal justice reform to ensure all Pennsylvanians have a chance to move forward with their lives.”center_img Gov.

Pennsylvania comparte la actualización sobre el panel de monitoreo de alerta temprana de COVID-19, los niveles de transmisión en condados, los casos rastreados hasta negocios

first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Pennsylvania comparte la actualización sobre el panel de monitoreo de alerta temprana de COVID-19, los niveles de transmisión en condados, los casos rastreados hasta negocios Español,  Press Release,  Public Health En el día de la fecha, el Gobernador Tom Wolf y la Secretaria de Salud Dra. Rachel Levine, publicaron una actualización de la situación semanal que detalla las medidas de mitigación del estado basados en el Panel del sistema de monitoreo de advertencia temprana de COVID-19. Las actualizaciones se darán a conocer todos los lunes a partir de hoy.La actualización incluye lo siguiente:El nivel de transmisión comunitaria como base para las recomendaciones para las escuelas de Pre-K a 12 para determinar los modelos de instrucción.Casos que informaron haber visitado un negocio entre las ubicaciones potenciales donde pueden haberse producido exposiciones al virus.Actualización de las recomendaciones de viaje.El panel está diseñado para proporcionar signos tempranos de advertencia sobre los factores que afectan las medidas de mitigación del estado. La información disponible en el panel de monitoreo de advertencia temprana incluye las diferencias de casos semana a semana, las tasas de incidencia, el porcentaje de pruebas positivas y las tasas de las hospitalizaciones, del uso de respiradores y de las visitas a las salas de emergencias vinculadas a la COVID-19. La actualización de esta semana compara el período del 14 de agosto al 20 de agosto con los siete días anteriores, del 7 de agosto al 13 de agosto.“Nuestro porcentaje de positividad disminuyó significativamente esta semana y representa la cuarta semana consecutiva en que el porcentaje de positividad ha disminuido”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “Este es un testimonio de que nuestras medidas están funcionando, pero todavía tenemos más trabajo por hacer. El virus sigue circulando y debemos seguir usando máscaras, practicando el distanciamiento social y evitando grandes reuniones para que los números sigan siendo bajos, poder detener la propagación y permitir más libertades”.Hasta el jueves 20 de agosto, el estado observó un aumento de 4,456 casos en el plazo de siete días. El aumento de los siete días previos fue de 5,598, lo que indica una disminución de 1,142 casos en todo el estado la semana pasada.El porcentaje de positividad en todo el estado bajó al 3.4% respecto del 4.0% de la semana anterior. Los condados con un porcentaje de positividad preocupante incluyen Perry (9.1%), Huntingdon (7.8%), Northumberland (7.3%), Indiana (7.1%), Union (5.9%), Susquehanna (5.7%), York (5.5%), Beaver (5.3%) y Blair (5.0%). Cada uno de estos condados está siendo observado mientras el estado continúa monitoreando toda la información disponible.Transmisión comunitariaSegún los datos del viernes, el condado de Union era el único condado en el nivel sustancial con varias fuentes conocidas de brotes que disparaban la transmisión comunitaria. Los departamentos de Educación y de Salud hablarán con los representantes del distrito escolar en el condado de Union para analizar las implicaciones de este nivel de transmisión.Con respecto a la semana que terminó el 20 de agosto, 21 condados estaban en el nivel bajo de transmisión, 45 condados en el nivel moderado, y uno con un nivel sustancial de transmisión:Bajo: Bedford, Bradford, Cameron, Clarion, Clinton, Elk, Forest, Fulton, Greene, Jefferson, Juniata, McKean, Pike, Potter, Somerset, Sullivan, Tioga, Venango, Warren, Wayne, WyomingModerado: Adams, Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Berks, Blair, Bucks, Butler, Cambria, Carbon, Centre, Chester, Clearfield, Columbia, Crawford, Cumberland, Dauphin, Delaware, Erie, Fayette, Franklin, Huntingdon, Indiana, Lackawanna, Lancaster, Lawrence, Lebanon, Lehigh, Luzerne, Lycoming, Mercer, Mifflin, Monroe, Montgomery, Montour, Northampton, Northumberland, Perry, Philadelphia, Schuylkill, Snyder, Susquehanna, Washington, Westmoreland, YorkSustancial: UnionVisitas a negociosEl Departamento de Salud brinda información semanal sobre la cantidad de personas que respondieron a los investigadores de casos que pasaron tiempo en establecimientos comerciales (restaurantes, bares, gimnasios/centros de fitness, salones de belleza/barberías) y en reuniones masivas 14 días antes del inicio de los síntomas de COVID-19.De los 5,649 casos confirmados informados entre el 9 de agosto y el 15 de agosto, el 45% (2,541) respondió a la pregunta de si pasaron tiempo en un establecimiento comercial.De los que respondieron, el 13% (320 personas) respondieron que sí visitaron un establecimiento comercial 14 días antes de la aparición de los síntomas:50% (159) de los que dijeron que sí informaron haber ido a un restaurante;23% (75) de los que dijeron que sí informaron haber ido a algún otro establecimiento comercial;17% (55) de los que dijeron que sí informaron haber ido a un bar;8% (26) de los que dijeron que sí informaron haber ido a un gimnasio/centro de fitness; y12% (38) de los que dijeron que sí informaron haber ido a un salón de belleza/barbería.De los 5,649 casos confirmados, el 48% (2,710) respondió a la pregunta de si asistieron a una reunión masiva o a otro evento grande. Del 48%, casi el 12% (326) respondió que sí asistieron a una reunión masiva u otro evento grande 14 días antes de la aparición de los síntomas.Comparado con los datos informados el 14 de agosto, los datos de esta semana vieron un aumento de las personas que informaron haber visitado un restaurante (50% frente al 47%), un aumento de las personas que informaron haber ido a algún otro negocio (23% frente al 19%) y las personas que asistieron a un salón de belleza/barbería (12% frente al 9%). Los números de esta semana disminuyeron con respecto a ir a un bar (17% frente a 24%), ir a un gimnasio/centro de fitness (8% frente a 10%). El número de personas que asistieron a una reunión masiva o a otro evento grande se mantuvo igual (cerca del 12%).Las notas de los investigadores de casos incluyeron menciones frecuentes de visitas a bares y a restaurantes entre los casos positivos. Para comprender mejor esta tendencia que cada vez cobra más fuerza, el 13 de julio, los rastreadores de contactos comenzaron a hacer preguntas más específicas sobre los tipos de negocios visitados y si las personas asistieron a una reunión masiva, definida como más de 250 personas al aire libre o más de 25 en un ambiente cerrado.Los números anteriores señalan a los entornos comerciales y a las reuniones masivas como posibles sitios de transmisión. Solo menos de la mitad de los encuestados a quienes se les preguntó qué tipos de negocios visitaron o si asistieron a una reunión masiva respondieron la pregunta. Por lo tanto, el departamento recuerda a los residentes de Pennsylvania que es esencial que las personas contesten el teléfono cuando los investigadores de casos llamen y que brinden información completa a estos profesionales clínicos.Recomendaciones de viajeTambién hoy, el Departamento de Salud actualizó sus recomendaciones de viaje, anunciadas originalmente el 2 de julio, para eliminar a Arizona de la lista de los estados sobre los cuales se recomienda a los viajeros domésticos que realicen una cuarentena de 14 días al regresar a Pennsylvania. No se agregaron nuevos estados.Es importante que las personas entiendan que esta recomendación está vigente para evitar la propagación de la COVID-19 en Pennsylvania. Un número preocupante de casos recientes se ha vinculado con los viajes, y si las personas van a viajar, necesitamos que tomen medidas para protegerse a ellas mismas, a sus seres queridos y a su comunidad, y eso implica la cuarentena.El Gobernador Wolf sigue priorizando la salud y la seguridad de todos los residentes de Pennsylvania a través de la pandemia de COVID-19. Los habitantes de Pennsylvania deben continuar tomando medidas para prevenir la propagación de la COVID-19, independientemente del condado en el que vivan. Esto incluye usar una máscara o cubierta facial cada vez que estén en público. Se ha demostrado que la COVID-19 se propaga fácilmente en el aire y los portadores contagiosos pueden ser asintomáticos.View this information in English.center_img August 24, 2020last_img read more
