Google Maps is now adding new COVID-19 related features to help users make an informed decision before heading out during the holidays. These features come at a time when cases are on a surge once again, and fears of bigger spread mount during the winters and the holiday season. Google Maps looks to offer more information from COVID-19 official resources. It will show you information including all-time detected cases in an area, the last average seven-day trend, and the number of deaths there, to give you a fair idea of the situation before you head to that area. Additionally, Google Maps will also offer live crowdedness information on public transport.Google announced in a blog that it is rolling out two new features that look to offer you more information that will inevitably help you during the COVID-19 crisis. The first one includes the ability to see more COVID-19 information about a region – including all-time detected cases, quick links to COVID resources from local authorities, the seven-day trend there (increasing or decreasing), and the number of total deaths. Google says that this additional information will be “especially handy if you’re heading out of town and need to get up to speed about the local guidelines, testing sites and restrictions in another city.”- Advertisement –center_img – Advertisement –last_img read more

F&P: Denmark must secure free-trading relationship with UK

first_imgDenmark’s pensions and insurance industry association says keeping a good trading relationship with the UK is an important priority for the Nordic country in the wake of last week’s referendum result, which favoured the UK’s breaking away from the European Union (EU).In an interview in local media, Per Bremer Rasmussen, chief executive at Forsikring & Pension (F&P), the Danish pensions and insurance association, said: “The biggest question of all now, after the British have said ‘leave’, is what the Leave side means.”He said ascertaining what the British people really wanted was the first step.“It is completely unclear what they want to fight for, so the big uncertainty is what Great Britain wants now,” Bremer Rasmussen said in an interview with Danish news service FinansWatch, and confirmed by F&P. He said he did not expect the UK to sign up to the European Economic Area agreement because there were many obligations included in this cooperation – the free movement of labour, among other things.“It is important we think beyond our immediate, short-term situation – that we think about what is best for Europe and what is best for Denmark in the long term, and that is to make sure we can get as free a trading cooperation with the British as possible,” he said.He acknowledged, however, that this could be difficult to secure, as there are so many different elements involved when such a free-trade agreement is negotiated.British fisheries policy, for example, could prove to be a sticking point in such a deal, he said, but he added that he hoped it could be done anyway.“My call to those who now have to sit down and negotiate is that this situation should have as little a negative impact as possible, and that we will do everything we can to ensure the UK continues to be a key partner in Europe, and that we can maintain a smooth trading relationship with the British,” Bremer Rasmussen said.last_img read more

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic already up to speed when it comes to Benik Afobe

first_img Press Association Striker Afobe was due to be in the Wolves squad which travelled to Upton Park in the FA Cup on Saturday, only to be withdrawn as transfer talks with the Cherries progressed. The former Arsenal youngster tied up the big-money switch on Sunday and is now poised to make his Bournemouth debut on Tuesday night, ironically against Bilic’s Hammers. “We were expecting him to play on Saturday so I have already watched him in a few games,” said the West Ham boss. “He’s a very good player. “They have also signed Juan Iturbe from Roma who is a great winger. Bournemouth are thinking big so well done to them. “They had a lot of injuries and have done well to maintain good results without those players, but they have probably been waiting for this transfer window.” Bournemouth were surprise 4-3 winners at Upton Park in August, so Bilic knows exactly what to expect from Eddie Howe’s men as they attempt to make amends in the reverse fixture. “They are a good side, they have been together a long time with same manager, and now they have added a couple of players who they needed,” added Bilic. “They are playing good football and the biggest thing is they don’t have negative pressure. They got promoted, and although it’s important to stay up they are enjoying it. “You can see in the games every player is positive, they are not afraid of the ball. They enjoy playing football. “They are well organised, they are hard to beat, they run a lot and they did it here when they beat us 4-3, so we are very aware of what to expect when we play them.” Slaven Bilic does not need to swot up on Bournemouth new boy Benik Afobe – as he was expecting to face him three days earlier. Bilic has also dismissed suggestions that West Ham are looking to sign Charlie Austin this month. The Hammers are third favourites to land the QPR striker with some bookmakers, but Bilic says he has no idea why. “Charlie Austin? That hasn’t come from the club,” he said. “He’s a good player, of course, but he was linked with most of the clubs when they (Rangers) got relegated. “We were among those clubs in the summer but we chose other options, and now we are not looking for that sort of player.” last_img read more

We have to take the positives from it and now we’re used to the routine; it’s not like it used to be but everything’s good. We’re all healthy, the training sessions have been fantastic in recovering our rhythm. “Having not touched a ball for so long, when you go back out on the pitch you’ve lost your touch a bit, but now we just can’t wait to start playing games,” he added.

Gabriela Knutson overcomes frustrations in doubles and singles in Syracuse’s 7-0 win

first_imgAs the ball floated into Syracuse’s half of the court, Gabriela Knutson had to quickly re-adjust her body to keep Colgate from scoring its first point of the match.She leapt off the surface, stretched out her right arm and spiked the ball with a forceful backhand, capturing the point. Knutson and her doubles partner, Miranda Ramirez, were in control early in their first match together as SU’s No. 1 pairing in this season.Up 4-0 in the first set, Knutson hit back-to-back serves into the net, handing Colgate’s Mackenzie Deeter and Jordan Williams their first and only point of the match. Walking to the other end of the court, Knutson threw her hands up in frustration.“It’s tennis,” Knutson said. “It happens sometimes. I’ll mess up. I don’t think that double fault shows how I played the whole match.”Knutson and Ramirez went on cruise control for the rest of the match and won, 6-1, en route to Syracuse (2-0) defeating Colgate (0-1), 7-0, on Friday afternoon at Drumlins Country Club. For the second-straight meet, the Orange won all 15 sets played. After resting against Niagara on Jan. 21, Ramirez made her season debut, partnering with Knutson in doubles, and sliding in at the No. 2 slot in singles.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDespite her frustration, Knutson knew she and Ramirez remained in complete control of the match. For the final two points in the set, the duo dictated play, sending balls to all quadrants of the court in an attempt to fatigue Deeter and Williams. After a Ramirez drop shot secured a 6-1 win, Knutson was all smiles.“I just hit one double-fault, but other than that it was smooth sailing,” Knutson said. “I don’t think the match was really complicated for us, we weren’t worried at all.”Just 10 minutes later, Knutson was back on the court, this time for the No. 1 singles matchup against Deeter. While all five of her teammates won the first two points of their respective matches, Knutson found herself and Deeter knotted at one. She had made several unforced errors, but just like in her doubles match, she took an extra moment to collect herself between points. From there, Knutson returned to her normal self.After two straight backhand winners helped her gain a 2-1 advantage, Knutson was cruising. She refused to loosen up, however, as a determined look stayed on her face for the rest of the set. Once she secured a 6-1 victory, Knutson finally broke a smile after an exchange with associate head coach Shelley George.Syracuse head coach Younes Limam was not worried about Knutson’s hiccups that led to dropping points. In early-season games like this afternoon’s, it is a good thing to be challenged, Limam said.“We try to keep them mainly focused and having a simple strategy they can go to,” Limam said. “It’s a good thing sometimes when they get pushed and things get close.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 26, 2018 at 6:55 pm Contact David: ddschnei@syr.edulast_img read more
