84 health workers, including two pregnant women, test positive for COVID-19 in Jakarta

first_imgThe Jakarta administration has reported that 84 medical staff, who work in 30 hospitals and one clinic across the capital, tested positive for the coronavirus amid a nationwide shortage of personal protective equipment.Among the health workers with COVID-19, two workers were pregnant women, said the Jakarta Health Agency’s head of disease control and prevention division, Dwi Oktavia Handayani.A health worker and two doctors, who lived in Jakarta but worked at hospitals outside the capital, died of the contagious disease. Some health workers handling COVID-19 patients were at increased risk as they had to use raincoats instead of coveralls as a result of short supplies of protective equipment.Read also: Two hospital directors die of COVID-19 as Indonesian doctors call for transparency“We still need some help in terms of, among other things, personal protective equipment, masks, gloves, disinfectant and daily needs,” Dwi told reporters during a press briefing at City Hall on Wednesday.Both the private sector and the public are joining hands to support health workers’ needs in handling the outbreak.

Algoma Confirms Self-Unloader Contract with 3. Maj

first_imgCanadian shipping company Algoma Central Corporation has confirmed the contract with Croatian 3. Maj Shipyard to acquire a new Equinox Class 650’ self-unloading bulker upon completion of the vessel by the shipyard.As World Maritime News already reported, 3. Maj and Algoma reached the agreement to restore the construction of the vessel on September 4, 2019.The vessel, the second of two such ships that were to be built by 3. Maj for the company, is partially built and moored at the shipyard in Rijeka. Work on the vessel was halted in 2017 when the shipyard entered an extended period of financial difficulties.Algoma took delivery of the Algoma Innovator, a sister ship and the first ship built under a two-vessel contract, near the beginning of the 2018 navigation season. The company subsequently canceled the contract for the second ship along with the contracts for three Seaway-max self-unloading vessels as a result of the financial problems at the shipyard.In a separate statement, 3. Maj confirmed on September 19, 2019, it would receive state guarantees from the Croatian government to complete the ship in question.Specifically, the shipyard will complete the vessel with financing provided by the Croatian Bank for Reconstruction and Development (HBOR) and has committed to a delivery date of September 15, 2020. Algoma will pay the agreed price of the vessel at delivery, subject to certain penalties for late delivery, including a cancellation right if delivery is delayed beyond an agreed date.“We want to extend our sincere thanks to the Government of Croatia for their support of this project and the shipyard,” Gregg Ruhl, President & CEO of Algoma, commented.“The Croatian government worked closely with the shipyard’s management to navigate a complicated process and successfully coordinate the interests of suppliers and workers to complete hull 733, which will be named Algoma Intrepid.”Algoma Intrepid will join its sister ship Algoma Innovator, which entered service in early 2018. Both ships feature forward-mounted booms permitting cargo to be delivered at hard to reach docks typical for the company’s short sea clients.last_img read more

Galloway remains strong against Blue Jays

first_img Comments BALTIMORE — Beads of sweat continued to gather on the forehead of Syracuse goalie John Galloway. His eye black diminished to a mere smudge under each eye. His patented blue sweatpants were rolled to just below his knees. After a busy second half, Galloway looked the part of someone who was bombarded with 17-second half shots, six-second half goals and a Johns Hopkins offense that was desperately trying to leave its mark on the game after a dismal first half.But after the 10-7 win Galloway could finally relax.He sat with his arms resting on the table. The tape on his right hand was worn down. The No. 3 Syracuse Orange just defeated No. 7 Johns Hopkins at Homewood Field in Baltimore, but it was not without a barrage of second-half threats from the Blue Jays. Threats that Galloway and the Syracuse defense put to rest. After putting just two shots on net in the first half, Johns Hopkins rifled 17 shots off and put 13 of those on net in the second half.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘I thought the defense was very stingy tonight, especially in the first half,’ SU head coach John Desko said. ‘John (Galloway) played extremely well. He has made a real effort on being a better stopper this year and tonight you saw that. That makes our defense that much better.’Syracuse went into the half with a 5-1 advantage, but Hopkins came out firing in the third and fourth. The Blue Jays outscored the Orange 6-5 in the final 30 minutes, but key stops at key moments secured the win for Syracuse.  ‘I think our defense played unbelievably tonight,’ said Galloway, who finished with nine saves. ‘With Hopkins you know you are going to end up seeing some shots, and that is what they did in the second half. But our defensive effort came through and made it easy for me.’ Maybe easy was a stretch, but the defensive efforts of Matt Tierney, John Lade, Brian Megill and longstick midfielder Joel White aided Galloway in net. In just his second game back from a thigh injury, Lade shadowed the nation’s sixth-leading scorer in Hopkins’ Steven Boyle. Boyle finished with two goals and two assists but was held scoreless in the first half and came up empty when it mattered most.‘Playing Boyle was a real challenge because he is a great player,’ Lade said. ‘They had a lot of possessions in the third quarter, and he kept taking me and wearing me down. He got a couple good shots off on John.’After Boyle fed a cutting John Greeley in front of the net for the score, the Orange lead was cut to 9-7 with 2:47 to play. Joel White responded with a quick goal for Syracuse. With a three-goal advantage, Galloway huddled the Syracuse defenders together in front of his net.Hopkins gained possession off the faceoff, and Galloway jumped up and down getting ready for what he knew was coming.Johns Hopkins midfielder Michael Kimmel passed the ball off to Boyle. On the left side of the net, Boyle fired a shot at Galloway, but he made a stick save and cleared the ball to Tierney. Galloway pumped his arms up and down after the successful clear and pounded fists with Tierney.Galloway got the best of Boyle. Hopkins never scored again.‘Galloway played great tonight,’ Boyle said. ‘He made some great stops on the doorstop and saved some shots from up top, too. He is a great player and is tough. Defensively, you have to give them credit. They shut us down pretty much.’White ended the 28-game point-scoring streak of Kimmel. Lade kept Boyle in check. And when the defense broke down, there was Galloway. Standing in the net clapping his orange and white gloves, Galloway delivered when Hopkins threatened to climb all the way back.  Though he looked like he was worn down, for Galloway, it was just signs of having a good time.‘It is fun to play out here,’ Galloway said. ‘You dream of playing at Homewood Field at 8 p.m. under the lights with this many people. It was just me having a lot of fun tonight.’restern@syr.edu Published on March 22, 2010 at 12:00 pmcenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Sheridan Street finds niche at center attacking midfielder for Syracuse

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ On a warm offseason practice in the spring, outside forward Sheridan Street received a through ball from a teammate and blasted it into the net. Street was coming off a successful sophomore season in which she notched three goals in seven starts for the Orange. But suddenly, new assistant coach Kelly Lawrence blew the whistle and called street over. “Sheridan, I think you’d play better in the midfield than on the outside,” Lawrence told her. The comment shocked Street. She had spent her career at Syracuse as an outside forward. She was accustomed to being solely a goal-scorer, and now her new assistant coach thought she’d play better as a midfielder.Syracuse head coach Phil Wheddon agreed with Lawrence. He felt that Street’s skillset, which had morphed into being technically cleaner, was more suited for the center attacking midfielder position. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe decision was made. Street, a natural goal-scorer, has been forced to morph into a facilitator and organizer at center attacking midfielder. Despite a gradual transition taking the summer and part of the 2016 season, Street has grown into what Wheddon calls “a catalyst on the attack.”“It’s ultimately about putting players in the positions where they will succeed,” Wheddon said. “We have a lot of depth at the wide forwards and not as much in the midfield.”Street had from the spring to the fall to transition into a center attacking midfielder, a position she had never embraced in the past. She also transitioned while playing for her club team this summer. Her club coach allowed Street to switch positions to properly prepare for the Orange’s season. But she ran into multiple problems while adjusting. Street felt uncomfortable not being present on the defensive line. She has a keen, natural sense of placing herself in scoring positions. Now, as a midfielder, she’s been forced to restrain herself from joining the front of an attack. Street didn’t shoot nearly as much as she had in the past, which frustrated her. Playing center attacking midfielder requires a wide vision of the field and quickly distributing the ball on the attack. Those qualities weren’t Street’s forte.“Understanding the different runs was very hard for me,” Street said. “I would often find myself in a wide space. I was playing like an extremely wide midfielder. My spatial awareness on the field was an issue for me throughout the summer.” Her struggles at the position persisted when she returned to Syracuse in the fall. Street had started seven games for the Orange in 2015. Despite starting SU’s first two games in 2016, Street moved to the bench on Aug. 28 against Albany and was used as a late-game substitution.Street insisted she gradually transitioned instead of breaking through in a single moment. But Stephanie Skilton, Opal Curless and Carolin Bader bolstered her transition by helping her figure out her position through chatter during games and practices.“Not just regular game talk though,” Street said. “They would say, ‘Sher, I need you here, I need you there.’ That really helped me transition.”When Syracuse played Buffalo on Sept. 15, Street finally returned to the starting lineup. In the 63rd minute, the Orange and the Bulls were scoreless. Street stood back as Curless fired an open shot on net. UB’s goalkeeper deflected the ball in Street’s direction.Street had been trained to create opportunities, but she still had a knack for attacking. She sprinted toward the ball and blasted it into the net, giving the Orange its decisive goal in a 2-0 victory.SU has scored only three goals through six games of ACC play. For the Orange to make the NCAA tournament, it’ll need Street to create more chances in its four remaining games. “Her distribution, quickness in changing the point of attack, and texture of passes have improved dramatically,” Wheddon said. “She’s grown great at solving problems and escaping tough pressure. In the ACC, the midfield is where some of the most dangerous players play. So we’ve needed her there and she’s done great.” Comments Published on October 11, 2016 at 10:13 pm Contact Byron: brtollef@syr.edulast_img read more

Clonmel boxer decides to go pro

first_imgThe 25-year-old Clonmel man is the reigning National Super Heavyweight champion and made the decision because he says the amateur scene had become a bit of a ‘chore’. In the last year or so, he said he realised the amateur circuit was no longer for him after he felt he had accomplished all he could. Con says he is delighted with his decision and has the ‘fire back’ in his boxing and training. He told TippFM Sport he is relishing the challenge of turning professional and while there is nothing signed, he has been talking to interested parties in America and England. He just needs to decide who is going to sign with and where he is going to go. He added that all the other details, like his professional debut, will come after that.last_img read more
