South Korea appealed on Tuesday for strict social-distancing despite a slight fall in the number of its new coronavirus cases, with millions of people set to travel for a major holiday.The Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency (KDCA) reported 39 new infections as of Monday midnight, which marks a fifth day of double-digit rises. It brought South Korea’s total infections to 23,699, with 407 deaths.The numbers came a day after the daily tally fell to its lowest since a new clusters of the novel coronavirus emerged from a church and a big political rally last month, which have resulted in more than 1,800 infections. Kang also warned of strict punishment against anyone who takes part in a political rally. Authorities have said they have banned some 137 demonstrations.Polls have shown mixed forecasts about travel.More than 78% of Koreans said they planned to stay at home for the holiday in a survey conducted over the weekend by the Korea Society Opinion Institute.But airport authorities said on Sunday the number of people taking domestic flights would drop by 25% compared with last year. Health authorities pleaded for people to stay home and refrain from gatherings ahead of the Korean thanksgiving holiday of Chuseok, which begins on Wednesday, although millions are still expected to travel across the country.”We request you to be aware that the Chuseok holidays must not ignite another nationwide spread of COVID-19 and to act accordingly,” Vice Health Minister Kang Do-tae told a meeting.”Keeping distancing rules and wearing masks is the safest way to protect you, your family and society.”The government eased some social distancing rules after the rate of infections slowed this month but imposed special measures for the holiday, including banning dining at motorway rest areas and nursing home visits and requiring temperature checks at all stations.

Picture: Toby ScottMr Davidson told judges the cottage was “a truly special reef house” built using innovative construction techniques so as not to disturb the unspoilt site.“The cottage sensitively nestles itself into a rugged, secluded island landscape. With an eye to the physical qualities of the World Heritage-listed site and the project’s complex procurement process, the design concept was not only about touching the earth lightly but also about receding into the landscape and hugging the slope on the hill so that the physical presence of the house could be somewhat hidden in its surrounds.”More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home5 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor5 hours ago
Tweet Share HealthLifestyle Can wearing thongs be unhealthy?. by: – April 4, 2011 Share Share 28 Views no discussions Sharing is caring! Q: What’s the worst thing you can catch from your thong?A: In theory, since your thong is just touching your body, you won’t catch anything you don’t already have.In fact, studies have never been able to find a link between thongs and infections.But some women do notice an increase in UTIs and yeast infections when they wear these undies, so you’ll have to decide if it’s worth the risk to avoid visible panty lines.The potential problem with these undergarments is that fecal bacteria can move more easily from the rectum to your vagina, and then work their way into your urinary tract, possibly causing a UTI. Also, tight thongs may irritate the vagina and surrounding skin, which opens you up to infection.No need to switch to granny panties: Just use basic common sense-meaning, good hygiene.Don’t wear the same thong for more than a day, and wear them for limited periods of time.If you start to notice any itching or irritation on your outer skin, switch to a loose cotton pair of undies instead. And if you develop a UTI or yeast infection, don’t wear a thong until the infection is history.By: Dr. Roshini RajYahoo Shine
RelatedPosts Live stream Premier League, La Liga, Serie A on Showmax Pro this weekend Thiem claims his first Grand Slam title after thrilling fightback in US Open Naomi Osaka wins US Open women’s title Elise Mertens and Aryna Sabalenka won their first career Grand Slam title with a hard-fought 7-5 7-5 win over Ash Barty and Victoria Azarenka in the US Open doubles final on Sunday. The match ended in dramatic fashion when both Mertens and Sabalenka were drawn into the net and Barty sent a lob over both their heads. Sabalenka raced back to track it down and managed to put it back in play but Azarenka misfired with her overhead smash. Mertens fell to the court and Sabalenka looked to the sky in disbelief before they embraced. The win caps a dominant run by the pair, who completed the Sunshine Double with wins in Indian Wells and the Miami Open this year before making their first appearance in a major final together. Mertens said they fed off the energy of the lively New York crowd at Arthur Ashe Stadium. “I just think it’s the crowd. I mean they keep me going every time,” the Belgian said in an on-court interview. “I can’t believe we won a Grand Slam. It’s all so new,” she added. “We’re a good team and I hope we’re going to play doubles again in the future.” The Belarusian Sabalenka tipped her hat to her opponents for the thrilling battle. “Thank you girls, for this amazing final. It was a great fight and I enjoyed every second,” she said. The win denied Barty in her bid for back-to-back U.S. Open doubles victories after claiming her maiden Grand Slam doubles title with CoCo Vandeweghe in New York last year. “I thought the level was incredibly high,” Barty said. “It was a great two weeks. I love playing with Ashleigh,” Azarenka said. “It was a pleasure to play with her and I hope we can continue to play together in the future.” Reuters/NAN.Tags: Aryna SabalenkaAsh BartyElise MertensUS OpenVictoria Azarenka
For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Legendary South African fast bowler Dale Steyn has announced his retirement from Test cricket, Cricket South Africa said on Monday. “@DaleSteyn62 has brought down the curtain on one of the great fast bowling Test careers of the modern era when he announced his retirement from red-ball cricket with immediate effect,” Over the last few years, Steyn’s cricketing career has been marred by injuries and he was struggling to keep up with his fitness for the Test cricket. He, however, continues to be a national contracted player for the 2019/2020 season in white-ball cricket and therefore remains available for the Standard Bank Proteas in both One-Day International and T20 International cricket, the Cricket South Africa said.“Today I walk away from a format of the game I love so much. In my opinion Test cricket is the best version of this game. It tests you mentally, physically, emotionally,” the CSA quoted Steyn as saying.RELATED”It’s terrible to consider never playing another Test again but what’s more terrifying is the thought of never playing again at all. So I will be focusing on ODIs and T20s for the rest of my career to maximise my full potential and ensure my longevity in this sport.“I’d like to thank everyone in cricket, no one specific, because everyone has been a part of my journey. And I look forward to continuing to play for the Proteas in the shorter formats. Thank you,” he said.Steyn had made his Test debut against England in December 2004. Known for his brutal pace and probing line and length, Dale Steyn had picked up 439 wickets in Tests at an average of just 22.95.
Play ball. Although the weather the first few weeks of the season has been topsy-turvy, thwarting the possibility of having any sort of reliable playing conditions, one player hasn’t seemed to mind. Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez has exploded out of the gates, blasting seven homers and driving in 18 to go with an 11-game hitting streak and a .372 batting average. In the first seven games, A-Rod homered six times, to become the first Yankee to accomplish that feat. He certainly has rediscovered his stroke, the one that earned him American League MVP honors in 2005 when he blasted 48 long balls and drove in 130. But it’s old news. We’ve all come to expect numbers of this caliber from this larger-than-life Hall of Famer-to-be. So why is it that the media are still gushing over him? Well, it’s New York, for starters. Plus, in terms of what’s expected of A-Rod and his $27.7 million salary, he sucked last year. And boy was he ridiculed for it. Boobirds could be heard floating around Yankee Stadium at the sound of his name as often as cheers, depending, of course, on what he had done in his previous at-bat or fielding opportunity. All season long, Rodriguez was hounded for everything from his eerily high error tally (24) to his offensive game — 35 HR, 121 RBI, .290 AVG — to his work ethic. One time, he was caught sun tanning the afternoon of a game during which he committed two errors. The Tabloids stuck it to him, bashing his good physique and work ethic. Yankees teammates, however, will be the first to tell you that Rodriguez works harder and logs more hours than anyone else. And now that he’s back on track and swinging a big bat, the media’s unabashedly drooling over him in agreement.One minute he’s the scapegoat for all of the Yankees postseason disappointments, the next he’s their only hope. Love him or hate him. But it shouldn’t work that way. Albert Pujols, the only other name in baseball with more prowess than Rodriguez, had the worst average among National League regulars entering his two-homer, five-RBI day Sunday. Even after the game, his average still sits under the Mendoza line at a skimpy .186. Yet no media tycoon has suggested the one-time NL MVP’s confidence is shot, or that he’s losing focus. I know it’s difficult to compare St. Louis to New York or last year’s error-prone Rodriguez to the Gold Glove of Pujols, but seriously, why don’t the media stop jumping on the A-Rod bandwagon when he’s stellar and jump off when he’s, well, still better than most? Yes, he does play in front of some of the harshest critics; people who have gotten so used to winning that now that is hasn’t happened in nearly seven years someone’s got to take the fall. And yes, he is the richest man in baseball; he’s is expected to perform to those standards. If A-Rod was dreadful last season, then what was teammate Jason Giambi? Horrific? OK, so he hit one more homer and had a higher on-base percentage (.413 to .392) and slugging percentage (.553 to .523) than Rodriguez. His average, however, was 37 points lower, he had fewer RBI (121 to 113) and he gets hurt. The latter isn’t what you want in a $20 million man. Plus, Giambi’s so bad at defense that he’s been relegated to full-time DH this season. Since they both made relatively the same amount of money in 2006, they both, you could say, were equally disappointing. But Giambi didn’t get booed. He wasn’t under the knife every time he didn’t perform. That onus fell on A-Rod and on A-Rod alone. I’m not here to say that Giambi ought to have been criticized more often or that Pujols is having a bad season, because those things aren’t important. Understanding that A-Rod — his career numbers, talent, slumps, errors, sun tans and everything else that goes into his being — is great is important. Outside of Pujols and a select few, I don’t know that I’ve ever seen someone quite like A-Rod. I don’t know if I ever will. Kevin is a junior double majoring in economics and journalism.

When Dominic Lamolinara walks out on the field before Saturday’s game against Princeton, he’ll know a familiar face will be firing shots his way in warm-ups. Syracuse reserve Brenny Daly has become Lamolinara’s go-to warm-up guy this year after Lamolinara struggled to find a shooter that suited his needs last season. Daly’s erratic, unpredictable shot and his outlandish personality have helped Lamolinara earn the starting nod in net and improve his game all season. The duo will head out to the field once again on Saturday when No. 8 Syracuse (6-2, 2-1 Big East) faces No. 7 Princeton (6-2, 2-1 Ivy League) at Princeton Stadium in New Jersey.“Dom and I have a great relationship,” Daly said. “We’re really good friends on and off the field. He’s playing great. He credits me a little bit, which I’ll take, but he’s playing awesome.”Lamolinara and Daly first met in high school in the Baltimore area. Lamolinara was a standout goalie at St. Mary’s and Daly was a dominant midfielder at McDonogh, two schools that are approximately 40 miles away from each other. Daly redshirted last season and Lamolinara, after transferring from Maryland, started three games for Syracuse, splitting time with Bobby Wardwell. Lamolinara struggled all season to find a warm-up guy that was exactly what he was looking for. Billy Ward, Dylan Donahue and Henry Schoonmaker, three of SU’s most prolific scorers, all gave it a shot. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut there was something wrong. They were all too accurate. They placed their shots exactly where Lamolinara asked them to. He wanted more unpredictability ― someone he could count on to do the exact opposite of what he expected: Daly.The always-grinning, always-joking, often-bearded 5-foot-10-inch reserve. He’s only played three games this season, but every time Lamolinara trots onto the field prior to the opening faceoff, Daly’s the one rifling shots at him.Lamolinara requested Daly in the fall. They had been friends and gotten along swimmingly, so Lamolinara figured he’d be a perfect choice for the job. Now they hang out off the field all the time, chowing down at Chipotle whenever possible. “We always had that relationship,” Lamolinara said. “We were the Baltimore boys.”Lamolinara remembers the first day of fall practice, a frigid Saturday. He and Daly were starting to develop even more of a rapport. Lamolinara was freezing, so he told Daly not to hit him with the ball. Daly did not oblige. He rarely does. Daly, who Lamolinara called “the John Belushi of the team,” is always making a wisecrack or pulling a prank. “He hit me and he hit me like three or four times,” Lamolinara said. “It kind of pissed me off. He was laughing. He thought it was hilarious.”Daly isn’t only unpredictable when he tries to be, though. Lamolinara said if he asks for a shot top-right it will often go bottom-right. Daly can fire the ball at an absurdly fast speed, but he has very little control, Lamolinara said.And that’s exactly what the goalie needs. So far the results have been tremendous. Lamolinara has replaced Wardwell as Syracuse’s starting goalie, allowing just 6.77 goals per game and saving 60.4 percent of shots that come his way, close to the best in the country.Daly often apologizes repeatedly when he’s having a bad day and his shots are way off target, but Lamolinara always tells him to stop. It helps.“I just tell him to calm down, it’s good, it’s helping me out,” Lamolinara said. “I think it’s taken six months for him to finally believe it.”Daly even scored his first career goal against Providence, firing a shot from close to 17 yards out that elicited an uproar from the bench.Lamolinara said Daly started running back on defense because he had no idea the shot went in. Then he heard the commotion from the bench and reveled in the glory as his teammates went crazy.“Everybody loves Brenny. I couldn’t really explain it,” Lamolinara said. “He’s just that funny kid on the team. When he does well, everybody gets really excited.”Ward loves playing with Daly, too. He said Daly is so outgoing that he could talk to a wall.“If you left Brenny by himself with a wall he’d have a great time with it,” Ward said. “If you left him a half hour by himself he’d be having the time of his life. That’s just the kind of guy he is.”Daly and Lamolinara chat before every practice and every game. Daly fires close to 65 shots. Lamolinara saves them ― two-thirds of them, Daly said ― as the two joke around for 15 minutes. “I finally found a warm-up guy that I like,” Lamolinara said. “I’m sure I’ll keep him throughout the year. I’ll probably keep him next year as well.” Comments Published on April 4, 2013 at 1:26 am Contact Trevor: email@example.com | @TrevorHass Facebook Twitter Google+

Associated Press Television News SUBSCRIBE TO US Stephen Piscotty hit a tying grand slam in the ninth inning, Mark Canha’s sacrifice fly put Oakland on top in the 10th, and the Athletics stunned the San Francisco Giants 8-7 on Friday night in the opener of the Bay Bridge Series.Oakland trailed by five in the ninth inning but rallied to win from such a deficit for the first time since July 15, 1952, according to STATS. The Giants hadn’t lost after leading by five or more runs in the ninth inning or latter since June 25, 1929.Matt Chapman began on second base with the new extra-innings rule and advanced on Matt Olson’s groundout to bring up Canha. He hit a flyball to right off Jarlin García (0-1).Joakim Soria (2-0) escaped trouble in the ninth for the win, and Liam Hendriks finished for his sixth save.The A’s delivered another dramatic late-game grand slam. Olson hit one to beat the Angels in 10 innings on opening night. Piscotty had another in walkoff fashion in a win over the Rangers earlier this month.“The magnitude of them, too, two walkoffs and one that ties the game on the road in the ninth,” manager Bob Melvin said. “Can’t explain it. You just try to get the pitcher on the defensive.”Until Piscotty’s mighty swing, the Giants were beating the slugging A’s at their own power game.Hunter Pence hit a three-run homer, and Evan Longoria and Mike Yastrzemski also connected to back Johnny Cueto. The right-hander struck out five over seven strong innings, allowing two runs, three hits and two walks but had nothing to show for it.Longoria homered in the first against late fill-in Jesús Luzardo, moved up a day after A’s opening day starter Frankie Montas was scratched because of tightness in his upper back and neck. Montas plans to throw on the side Saturday and could start Sunday.Longoria’s two-run single in the fourth chased Luzardo. He still had plenty of rest having earned his first career victory last Sunday against the Astros.The ball carried on a rare hot evening in San Francisco, where first-pitch temperature reached 85 degrees.Robbie Grossman hit an RBI triple in the A’s two-run seventh.Oakland improved to 1-2 in interleague play and started a stretch with seven straight games against the National League West.After playing 14 of their initial 20 games on the road the Giants are back home for 11 of 13 at home. Still, they squandered leads of 5-0 and 6-2.COOLING OFFGiants mascot Lou Seal spent much of the game paddling in a kayak on McCovey Cove alongside bay regular McCovey Cove Dave .LAUREANO SUSPENSIONA’s center fielder Ramon Laureano sat out after he had a six-game suspension reduced to four games Friday following an appeal of the penalty for his role in a benches-clearing incident with the rival Houston Astros last Sunday.Major League Baseball said a settlement had been reached. He will be eligible to play again Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.Astros hitting coach Álex Cintrón received a 20-game suspension and a fine Tuesday for his role in the fracas at Oakland.Canha made a great catch running hard into the wall and went 1 for 3 with a strikeout and walk while filling in for Laureano as he did for a stretch last season when the center field was hurt.TRAINER’S ROOMAthletics: Montas woke up with the stiffness in his back and lower neck. “I hope he pitches in the series,” Melvin said. … RHP Jordan Weems was reinstated from the 10-day injured list after missing time with a strained lat muscle on his pitching side and was optioned to the club’s alternate site in San Jose.Giants: LHP Drew Smyly (sprained left index finger) has begun throwing on flat ground and is scheduled to be re-examined this weekend. RHP Jeff Samardzija also is set to be re-evaluated as he is sidelined with inflammation in his throwing shoulder.
