Premier League targets 17 June restart AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwittercenter_img Sports betting Regions: UK & Ireland English Premier League clubs have provisionally agreed to resume play from 17 June, 100 days since the competition was halted due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.Clubs met today (28 May) to discuss the details of the proposed return to action, before confirming that the season will resume provided all safety requirements can be put in place by that date. “Today we have provisionally agreed to resume the Premier League on Wednesday 17 June,” Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said. “But this date cannot be confirmed until we have met all the safety requirements needed, as the health and welfare of all participants and supporters is our priority.The first two matches back will see Aston Villa take on Sheffield United, while Manchester City plays Arsenal, on 17 June. After these games have taken place, each club in the division will have played 29 times, and a full fixture list will return over 19-21 June.There are a total of 92 games of the 2019-20 campaign still to play, with clubs reportedly keen to conclude the season by early August. The competition has been suspended since mid-March.“Sadly, matches will have to take place without fans in stadiums, so we are pleased to have come up with a positive solution for supporters to be able to watch all the remaining 92 matches,” Masters added.This will see all of the remaining matches broadcast live via the league’s existing broadcast partners, Sky Sports, BT Sport, BBC Sport and Amazon Prime. Sky is to broadcast 64 of these games, of which 25 will be free-to-air, with four to be broadcast on the BBC – the first time the corporation will have shown full Premier League matches. BT has not said how many games it will show – or how many, if any, will be free-to-air – while Amazon is yet to confirm if its games will only be available to Prime subscribers.“The Premier League and our clubs are proud to have incredibly passionate and loyal supporters,” Masters continued. “It is important to ensure as many people as possible can watch the matches at home.“We will continue to work step-by-step and in consultation with all our stakeholders as we move towards resuming the 2019/20 season.”The planned kick-off times in the UK for live matches will also differ from the traditional times, in order to ensure all can be broadcast.Yesterday (27 May), clubs unanimously voted to resume contact training, with the move also approved by players, managers, the Professional Footballers’ Association, League Managers Association and the UK government.Last week, stakeholders also approved a return to small-group training, with players having already been permitted to begin training alone at club facilities.Premier League players and staff will continue to be tested for Covid-19 at least twice a week, with testing capacity also being increased following the return to contact training. Anyone who tests positive must self-isolate for a minimum of seven days.Liverpool currently sit top of the league, 25 points ahead of Manchester City, and had been on course to win the Premier League for the first time.Football governing bodies in Italy and Spain also announced their intentions to complete the 2019-20 season, while Germany’s Bundesliga resumed matches behind closed doors earlier this month.

Decide Representations Seeking FCRA Exemption For COVID Relief, Delhi High Court Directs Centre

first_imgNews UpdatesDecide Representations Seeking FCRA Exemption For COVID Relief, Delhi High Court Directs Centre Nupur Thapliyal19 May 2021 11:12 PMShare This – xThe Delhi High Court on Tuesday directed the Competent Authority to treat as representation a plea seeking directions on the Union of India to exempt registered associations, organizations and individuals, prior permission under under Section 11 of the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act, 2010 to receive foreign contributions in the form of covid life saving equipments.The Court directed the competent authority under the Union Ministry to decide the issues raised and grievances ventilated by the petitioners, keeping in mind the nature of relief sought.A division bench comprising of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Jyoti Singh also observed that exemptions and relaxations are not a matter of right, and the same was the prerogative of the Government.”It is a settled law that exemptions and relaxations under different Statutes are not a matter of right. It is the prerogative power of the Government to exempt or give relaxations with or without stringent conditions. It is not for the Court to direct the Government to exercise the power in a particular manner. It is evident from the pleadings and not denied by the learned counsel for the Petitioner during the course of hearing that before filing the present petition, Petitioner has not approached the Competent Authority seeking exemption under the Act.”Moved through Senior Advocate Deepak Prakash and drafted by Advocates Divyanga malik, Nachiketa Vajpayee, Prerna Robin and Jessica Bharadwaj, the petition prayed for relaxing the “stringent and time-consuming pre-conditions” for receiving foreign contributions in the form of donations, in the interests of the general public at large in exercise of powers under Section 50 of the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act, 2010.Stating that the process of granting prior permission of the Union Government under Section 11 of the Act is a time consuming process thereby keeping away the registered NGOs to participate in the disaster mitigation efforts, the plea stated thus:”That Section 11 of the Act 2010 as it stands today prohibits the acceptance of foreign contribution unless a certificate of registration is obtained under Sec 11 (1) or a prior permission is obtained under sec 11(2). Section 7 of the Act expressly prohibits transfer of foreign contribution to another person. Thus, majority of NGOs who are out at the grass root level are unable to distribute this lifesaving equipment to the patients.”The plea therefore submitted that the Non-profits, philanthropies, CSR arms of Corporates situated outside, who are desirous of supporting the Indian populace, are hindered by such a procedure.”That it is the respectful submission of the Petitioner that the UOI can exempt the COVID related products like oxygen concentrator and lifesaving equipment from the definition of articles coming under the definition of foreign contribution for a limited period of 3-6 months so as to enable free flow of these equipment to India at this time of pandemic.” The plea read further.While disposing of the petition, the Court directed the Competent Authority under the concerned Ministry to treat the petition as a representation and decide the issues raised and grievances raised by the Petitioner, “in accordance with law, relevant rules, regulations and Government policies applicable to the facts of the case, as early as practicable, keeping in mind the nature of relief sought.”Click Here To Read OrderTagsChief Justice DN Patel Justice Jyoti Singh Delhi High Court FCRA Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) COVID-19 second wave Next Storylast_img read more

How to stay safe in the cold as frigid temperatures head to Northeast

first_imgLeonid Ikan/iStockBy EMILY SHAPIRO and MARIAM ALAM, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Break out the gloves and hats — the coldest air of the season is slamming the Northeast.Boston hit 7 degrees Friday morning — the city’s coldest temperature in two years.On Saturday morning, the wind chill — what the temperature feels like — is expected to plunge to 1 degree in New York City, minus 7 degrees in Boston and minus 8 degrees in Syracuse, New York.Here is your cheat sheet for how to brave the frigid weather, from what to wear outside to what to remember when driving.How to stay safe outsideThose with prolonged exposure or those not dressed appropriately for the weather are in danger of frostbite and hypothermia, National Weather Service meteorologist Jay Engle told ABC News.Frostbite results in the loss of feeling and color in affected areas — usually the nose, ears, cheeks, fingers, toes or chin, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Frostbite could potentially cause permanent damage and, in severe cases, can lead to amputation, the CDC said.Someone suffering from frostbite can be unaware of it because tissues that become frozen are numb, the CDC said. These are all signs of frostbite: numbness, white or grayish-yellow skin, or skin that feels unusually firm or waxy.“Don’t rub your hands — if you have frost-nip or frostbite, rubbing actually causes tissue damage,” Dr. Randall Wexler, professor of family medicine at Ohio State University, told ABC News.If you think you are developing frostbite, “keep the area covered if you can … because if you have frostbite on your hand and you pull off your glove, you may cause tissue damage,” Wexler said.He added, “That’s also when you want to start trying to raise your core body temperature — get rid of wet clothes, put on clothes that are warm and dry.”There’s also hypothermia — or abnormally low body temperature — which can impact the brain, “making the victim unable to think clearly or move well,” the CDC said. “This makes hypothermia especially dangerous, because a person may not know that it’s happening and won’t be able to do anything about it.”Warning signs for adults are shivering, exhaustion, confusion, fumbling hands, memory loss, slurred speech and drowsiness. Warning signs for infants are bright red or cold skin and very low energy, the CDC said.Engle recommends to “dress in three or more layers. One big thick winter coat tends not to do the trick. You have to have a thick sweater underneath and then a lighter jacket on top of that and then your winter coat.”“People really should keep their heads covered because that’s where majority of heat gets lost,” Engle added.Wexler said moving can generate heat. But try to avoid sweating.“If you are overheated and start to sweat, that lowers your body temperature and makes you more susceptible to cold injury,” he said. “You want to be able to adjust your layers, zip and unzip.”Wexler also recommended staying hydrated because “dehydration can help promote cold injury.”The young and elderly should be especially careful in the cold.“Their ability to maintain core body temperature is harder than mid-age and younger adults,” he said. “Kids, especially babies, lose a disproportionate amount of heat from their head — that’s why you want to have a hat on their head when you’re out there. Older people are more at risk simply because it is more difficult to regulate our core body temperature as we get older.”It’s also more difficult to maintain your core temperature if you are diabetic or taking decongestant antihistamines or certain blood pressure medications, Wexler said.How to keep your car safeWhen the temperature dips, getting behind the wheel can prove to be a challenge. Problems include dead car batteries, iced-over windshields, broken car locks and driving with no traction.Audra Fordin, founder of Woman Auto Know and the owner of Great Bear Auto Repair in Queens, New York, provided these tips:1. Before you hit the road, check under the hood.“If it’s really cold outside, you want to make sure that your battery is going to be good in the freezing cold weather,” Fordin said. “If you see any snow or blue stuff that’s growing off your battery, that’s an indication you want to go to the shop to have your battery checked.”2. Iced out windshields? Turn to your wallet for help.“If you get to your car and can’t see, pull out a credit card, and you can just wipe that frost away,” Fordin said.3. Fighting a stubborn car lock? Get sanitizing.“If your lock is frozen, put the sanitizer on the key, and then put the key into the lock,” Fordin said.4. If your car can’t gain traction, let your floor mat give an assist.“Grab your floor mat, you’re going to put it underneath the wheel,” Fordin said. “That will give you enough traction to pull your car out and hit the road.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
