first_imgBeneficiaries of the Department of Labor and Employment’s (DOLE) cash for work program in Caluya, Antique cleans the surrounding of a town facility in this undated photo. Integrated Provincial Health Office information officer Irene Dulduco attributed the decrease of dengue cases in the province to the implementation of DOLE’s program. PESO-CALUYA,ANTIQUE DOLE’s TUPAD#BKBK program in this province was implemented in two batches. There were 400 beneficiaries in the first (April 8-17) while 2,800 recipients took part in the second (April 29-May 8.) The TUPAD#BKBK is a 10-day program in which beneficiaries carry out works such as disinfection and cleaning of their own homes and doing backyard gardening while staying at home due to the threat of COVID-19. SAN JOSE, Antique – The cash-for-work program initiated by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) as a response measure amid coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has likewise led to the decline of dengue cases in this province.Dr. Leoncio Abiera, Jr., officer-in-charge of the Integrated Provincial Health Office (IPHO), said Thursday this province has only recorded 206 dengue cases from Jan. 1 to June 20 this year – 240 cases lower than the same period last year.  According to her, the decline of dengue cases in Antique started during the 13th morbidity week covering the March 29 to April 4 period with only five cases while three cases were recorded on the 14th morbidity week from April 5 to 11.center_img IPHO information officer Irene Dulduco, for her part, attributed the decrease of cases to the implementation of the DOLE’s Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced#Barangay Ko, Bahay Ko (TUPAD#BKBK) program. “The most number of dengue cases, which is 33, was monitored on January 1 to 7 – first morbidity week,” Dulduco said.

Wachman sights set on Limerick

first_img Press Association Burren Trail was unplaced in two starts last term and will be making her seasonal return here while Mansion House, who represents the Coolmore team, makes his racecourse bow in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden. Goddess Of Love goes for Wachman in the Croom House Stud EBF Fillies Maiden and this 170,000-euro daughter of Galileo is sure to attract plenty of support having made a most encouraging beginning to her career at Roscommon. Tuesday’s Sligo winner Vasoni makes a quick reappearance in the Ballyduane Stud Handicap but she will have to defy a 5lb penalty this time. Despite her extra burden, she is still 4lb better off with Legal Lyric, who beat her by a length and a half over this course and distance just last week. Legal Lyric’s trainer Willie Mullins saddles useful hurdler Drive Time in the Nathan Carter 25th July (QR) Race and he crosses swords with several other accomplished jumpers, including Shop DJ and Caim Hill. Killourney Empress was another to strike at Sligo earlier in the week and tries to repeat the feat in the Greenmount Apprentice Handicap. Tarrsille has occupied the runner-up position in a couple of hotly-contested handicaps and attempts to go one better in the limerickraces.ie Handicap, although he is 5lb worse off with Fastidious for finishing less than a length ahead of him at Naas. While Wachman’s runners have plenty to live up to in stablemate Duntle, all four could be promising prospects at this early stage. Athenaire and Burren Trail kick things off in the opening 7th July All American Day Maiden, with the first-named having made a satisfactory introduction at Navan last month. center_img David Wachman enjoyed a Royal Ascot winner on Wednesday and he looks to have some good chances much closer to home at Limerick.last_img read more

Emmanuel Emenike:  Searching for  Rediscovery in Greece

first_imgHowever, Emenike last week joined Greek champions, Olympiakos from Fenerbahce, after signing a two-year deal and a fee said to be about $2.8 million. After struggling with injuries and a lack of first-team football last season, Olympiakos provides him with a platform that includes the European Champions League next season.“I know there are big expectations from the fans and club, but I am ready. I’ve joined the most successful club in Greek football and I want to give my best for the team,” the 30-year-old told BBC Sport.The former Super Eagles striker is the sixth Nigerian player to sign for Olympiakos of Greece, following in the footsteps of Rashidi Yekini, James Obiorah, Haruna Babangida, Michael Olaitan and Brown Ideye.Between the summer of 2009 and 2012, the forward averaged over 14 league goals per season with Karabukspor and Spartak. During the 2013-14 campaign, he managed 12 goals in 28 league outings for Fener, but in 2014, despite making only one league outing less, he contributed only four goals.After a memorable display against Bosnia-Herzegovina at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, where he drove down the left flank, leaving defenders in his wake before setting up Osaze Odemwingie’s pivotal winner, Emenike went on 15 international matches without a goal. Late coach Stephen Keshi had to drop Emenike, who previously would have been the first name on the list.The question on the lips of observers is whether Emenike’s move to Greece could really revive his career.Former Nigerian international, Waidi Akani, sees a lot of sense in Emenike’s move to Olympiakos.In a chat with THISDAY on telephone, Akani said, “I think he was just trying to get a break from Fenerbahce. Once a player is not wanted in a club and he has a high price tag on him there is always the need to move and that is what I think he did by moving to Greece. He has to go somewhere for a break and after a year or two, if his game improves, he can always stage a comeback to the main stream of European football.“Emenike can still stage a comeback to the national team. There are lots of examples of players that had made some move to revive their career and still got national team calls. A good example is Asamah Gyan, who is still a dependable player for the Black Stars of Ghana. It all depends on the player’s current form and the number of minutes he gets to play. It’s better for him to have regular playing time at Olympiakos than being a bench warmer at Fenerbahce. It’s a right move for him and from there he can re-lunch himself and his career.”Respected Turkish journalist, Kadir Onur Dinker of Milliyet, indeed advised the Greek champions to employ a psychologist who will closely monitor Emenike due to his frequent conflicts with teammates, coaches and fans.”He also faced some problems with the Nigerian Federation, so he had to withdraw from the national team though he is young.“In general, I can say that he is a very sensitive character that is psychologically affected. For me, Olympiakos should hire a psychologist to watch him in order to be focused. If he has good relationships with his teammates and fans, he can be the best player in the Greek league. Personally I like his dynamic attacking style, like Drogba and I hope he will succeed in Olympiakos,” Kadir told gazzetta.gr.Emenike made 93 appearances in all competitions during his time at Fenerbahce scoring 25 goals.He came to limelight when he was invited to the national team for a friendly game against Sierra Leone. Thereafter, he was called up to Nigeria’s 23-man squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and scored in the opening match against Burkina Faso in a 1–1 draw. He also scored the first goal in the quarter final match between Nigeria and Côte d’Ivoire which Nigeria won 2–1. Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram His four goals at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations was crucial to Nigeria’s winning the biennial competition for the third time. As a result, some observers thought a striker that would fill the vacuum left by Super Eagles all-time highest goal scorer, Rashidi Yekini, had finally arrived. It was not to be, as Emmanuel Emenike’s career nosedived tremendously. His involvement in many controversies with his various clubs did not help matters. In 2015, he announced his retirement from the national team after just five years stint. Last week, Turkish side, Olympiakos announced the signing of Emenike. Kunle Adewale asks if his move to Greece could help revive his dwindling careercenter_img Emmanuel Emenike’s first “missionary journey to Turkey” with Fenerbahce was more  memorable for its controversies than anything of value. He was accused of match-fixing, though later released without charge. In his second stint with the Turkish side, he was very unpopular with the club’s supporters largely due to his poor performance, scoring only four goals in 27 appearances. Things came to a head that he once stormed off the field after he was abused by his own fans, culminating in a move to UAE side, Al Ain on loan.last_img read more

Montreal Canadiens’ Ilya Kovalchuk pumped after scoring OT winner vs. Toronto Maple Leafs

first_imgWith all seven of Canada’s teams in action on “Hockey Day in Canada,” it was one of the newest players north of the border that stole the show in an overtime thriller between the Montreal Canadiens and the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday.Knotted at one score apiece, the Canadian rivals headed to a 3-on-3 overtime period with Ilya Kovalchuk emerging as the hero in front of the home fans at the Bell Centre. TRADE RUMORS: Chris Kreider | Alexandar Georgiev | Jason Zucker |Brenden DillonIt started — as many overtime rushes do — with a save at the other end of the ice, courtesy of Carey Price. Pushing the puck off his blocker to center ice, Nick Suzuki grabbed the rubber disk and headed for the net, all alone. Newly-acquired Toronto goalie Jack Campbell, who is filling in for the injured Frederik Andersen, poked the puck away, but straight to a trailing Kovalchuk who made no doubt about it, sending it to the back of the net and commencing mayhem in Montreal.Ilya Kovalchuk marque le but gagnant @EASportsNHL 3 contre 3!

In 17 games with the Kings this season, the forward had just three goals and six helpers but in 15 games with a better Habs team, he has 12 points (six goals, six assists).His name has been tossed around in trade talks, but if Kovalchuk can produce offense and the Canadiens can keep their playoff hopes alive, his $700,000 deal starts to look even more favorable to Montreal the longer their season goes and the more points No. 17 racks up. Currently, the Canadiens (61 points) sit five points behind the Maple Leafs (66) for an Atlantic Division playoff spot and six points out of the second Eastern Conference wild card, currently held by the Philadelphia Flyers (67).Welcome to the rivalry, Ilya.last_img read more
