The couple believes that though the stepsister did not show any signs of the virus, she may have passed it on to them.As for now, the couple is sleeping in separate bedrooms, using different bathrooms, and wearing face mask until test show that Sean is no longer contagious:“Just stay home, keep your distance, two weeks at home is better than a month in the hospital,” Sean said.last_img read more

Cricket News Live Streaming Cricket, India vs West Indies, 2nd Test: Watch IND Vs WI Live Match at SonyLiv & Sony Sports Network

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Live Streaming Cricket, India vs West Indies, 2nd Test : A 3-0 sweep in the Twenty20 Internationals. A 2-0 series win in the three-match ODIs with one game getting washed out. A 318-run win in the Antigua Test match. So far, Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team will feel like how the tourists arriving in the Caribbean feel – absolutely overjoyed. Kohli’s Indian team have been dominat in all facets, be it bowling, batting and fielding across all formats. India are runaway favourites going into the second and final match at the Sabina Park against a team that neither showed the resolve nor the aptitude required to put up a sustained fight in five-day cricket. “The conditions here are good and the pitch also looks good. We are expecting another good performance,” bowling coach Bharath Arun said on Wednesday. Jasprit Bumrah (match haul of 6 wickets) and Ishant Sharma (8 wickets) exposed the opposition’s technical frailties and they will be gunning for more in the second game. It is unlikely that India will be tinkering with their playing XI. India ticked all the right boxes in the Test match in Antigua. However, there is a major question mark regarding Rishabh Pant’s form. The left-hander is currently having a torrid time in the Caribbean, having scored just one fifty across all formats. Pant is currently facing plenty of heat regarding his place in the side and with Wriddhiman Saha waiting in the wings, the Jamaica Test could be a make-or-break situation for Pant.How, when and where to watch live streaming of IND vs WI 2nd Test match:When is India vs West Indies 2nd Test match?The India vs West Indies 1st Test match will start on August 30, Friday.What time does the live coverage of India vs West Indies 2nd Test start in India (time in IST)?India vs West Indies 2nd Test match will start at 08:00 PM IST on August 30, Friday.Where will India vs West Indies 2nd Test match be played?The India vs West Indies 2nd Test match will be played at Sabina Park cricket stadium in Jamaica.How and where to watch online live streaming of the India vs West Indies 2nd Test match?You can watch India vs West Indies 2nd Test live streaming on SonyLiv app and website last_img read more

Take in nature with these socially distant LA sights & hikes

first_imgDue to the coronavirus, the indoor galleries and some high-touch outdoor areas — including the Children’s Garden and the Conservatory — remain closed. However, The Huntington boasts 14 other themed gardens spread out over an astounding 120 acres that are a treat to visit any time of year. With nearly 15,000 different plants, the grounds are bursting with flowers, herbs and foliage of every imaginable color and scent.  If you’re a movie buff, you’ll recognize that this pier and the famous Lighthouse Café behind it are featured in “La La Land.” For bonus points and an added layer of fun, pop in some headphones and listen to the movie soundtrack as you and your friends ride back down the bike path.  Once you reach the summit, you’ll find plenty of striking boulder formations — a good place to rest, have lunch and take in the quiet landscape. Foot traffic on the wide trails is light and these rocky outcrops can be great places to practice meditation and breathing exercises alone, with your quarantine pod or alongside a few socially distanced friends.  Sights  Some weekend warriors enjoy biking the entire 21-mile beach path in a single day, but I’d recommend starting small for your first time on The Strand. A popular choice is the stretch from Manhattan Beach to Hermosa Beach. This mile-and-a-half route is ideal around sunset so that when you reach the famous Hermosa Beach Pier, you can watch the sun dip below the horizon.  Art by Sara Heymann Marvin Braude Bike Trail  Established in 1919 by Henry E. Huntington and his wife Arabella, The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens is a collections-based research and educational institution located just 30 minutes from campus in the quiet suburbs of San Marino.  As the second week of classes begins, those who have moved back to Los Angeles are likely looking to fill the void. So for those itching to escape the confines of their apartments and get some fresh air, here is a list of socially distant sights and hiking trails to explore in and around the city.  Whether you’re a hiker, trail runner, bird watcher or flower enthusiast, this trail has enough variety to satisfy any outdoorsman’s needs. The landscape frequently changes on the hike, from tree tunnels to vast grass fields, and includes several creek crossings. One section of the trail is a dead ringer for the alpine meadow in the opening scene of “The Sound of Music” — you’ll almost expect to see Julie Andrews twirling around in the wildflowers when you walk through it.  Let’s face it, weekends in college are not what they used to be. With the student body scattered to the four winds this semester, the typical atmosphere of door-to-door frat parties, late-night food runs with friends on Fig and Downtown L.A. day trips has become a faint recollection. (Although some people seem to be having a hard time letting go of the past when it comes to off-campus ragers.) The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens  Backbone Trail to Corral Canyon Road  The steep incline for the last half of the hike will definitely get your blood pumping and can be difficult for some when wearing face masks, but the views of Malibu Canyon from the top are good compensation, as are the wildflowers and other native flora that line the trail on your way up. If you take the trail to Castro Crest, you’ll also find an unusual spiral rock art formation on the ground maintained by hikers over the years.center_img Waterman Mountain Loop Trail  While Musch Trail often has heavier foot traffic than the Waterman Mountain Loop Trail, there are large footpath sections that are wide enough to maintain social distance when passing others. The first half of the trail is pretty flat and gradually gets steeper with a pretty serious incline the last mile or so, but the final push up the hill is more than worth it when you see the far-out rock formations. If you aren’t afraid of heights, climb to the top of the sloping rocks and take in the Pacific Ocean’s 180-degree view.  Hikes  Whether you’re a photographer, artist, architecture student or looking to practice mindfulness, a visit to The Huntington Gardens is one of the best ways to experience L.A. while maintaining social distancing.  Musch Trail to Eagle Rock is bound to make for an exciting weekend adventure from the strange art to the otherworldly rock formations at the end of the hike.  Another day hike option is Musch Trail to Eagle Rock. About a 40-minute drive from campus, the 4.5-mile-long trail is located in the middle of Topanga Canyon. You’ll be treated to bohemian roadside art installations reminiscent of 1970s counterculture along the journey to the trailhead.  If you’re looking to leave the city bubble and get out into nature, consider a hike along the Waterman Mountain Loop Trail. Located in the Angeles National Forest, a little more than an hour’s drive from campus, this six-mile-long, moderately rated route features stunning alpine views of the San Gabriel Mountains. Massive pine and cedar trees line the trail providing shade and an intoxicating aroma can be enjoyed even through face masks.  While picnics are not permitted, consider swinging by the 1919 Café for grab-and-go refreshments that you can enjoy while strolling through the grounds.  For the environmentally conscious Trojans out there, a bike ride along the Marvin Braude Bike Trail — also known as The Strand — is the ideal way to get a taste for the various beach towns dotting the L.A. coastline. Starting at Will Rogers State Beach in the Pacific Palisades, The Strand passes through popular Southern California destinations, including Santa Monica, Venice and Dockweiler (to name a few) before ending at Torrance Beach.  For those looking to break away from their screens, a trip to The Huntington is perfect for clearing the mental clutter after a long week of online classes.  Located in the Santa Monica Mountains, less than an hour from campus, Backbone Trail is another essential L.A. hike. The 63-mile-long trail is best made for weekend trips in smaller sections; one popular choice is a trek from Backbone Trail up to Corral Canyon Road.  Musch Trail to Eagle Rock last_img read more

Student input influences administration

first_imgQuick said student forums are integral because many internal discussions spring from issues students bring up.“The undergraduates had good suggestions about how to better position the university relative to the role in the community,” Quick said.  “They had a lot of input on GE’s and how to think about general education as a part of preparing students for the 21st century. Our internal discussions have been based on that, thinking about those kinds of issues.”Some students said they are skeptical about how much administration values their input.  Hayley Sherman, a sophomore majoring in international relations said it is difficult for students to know what qualities the new dean should have.“I don’t really know what a dean does,” Sherman said. “I don’t know if students have the time or interest to go to forums so maybe that’s not the best option.”Despite student hesitations, Quick said administration is looking to understand the qualities and characteristics students’ value and want to see in the school’s leadership.“Maybe an undergraduate doesn’t have the full idea of what a dean even is.” Quick said.  “I don’t think you need to know the whole job description to have an opinion on what kind of person the dean should be.”Some students said they are thankful that administration cares enough to ask.“It is really interesting that my role within the college is not lost among the many students,” said Alexa Pace, a junior majoring in psychology.  “This shows that they care about individual students.” As the USC Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences evolves its image, academic content and administration, its leadership is reaching out to students and constituents more often, Executive Vice Provost Michael Quick said.The school held a forum Tuesday to ask students what they wanted the search committee to look for in a new dean, as current Dean Howard Gillman will step down at the end of the year. Earlier in the semester, USC Dornsife College held forums on how the school should rebrand itself in light of the $200-million donation.Speaking up · USC Dornsife Dean Howard Gillman will step down this year. Student input will be considered in the search for a new dean. – Daily Trojan file photolast_img read more

Beat writers predict Syracuse-Florida State outcome

SU continues its midseason decline even without the powerful Dalvin Cook playing for the Seminoles. One player was never going to be the difference between SU and one of the nation’s best teams.Jesse Dougherty (4-3)State of the seasonFlorida State 35, Syracuse 14Florida State is coming off a loss to a team it shouldn’t lose to. If Syracuse thinks that’s going to happen two weeks in a row, it hasn’t watched much Seminoles football in recent years. The star running back Cook isn’t playing but, well, next man up. The Orange’s season is reeling and Tallahassee isn’t the place to knock it back on track.Matt Schneidman (6-1)BooSyracuse 27, Florida State 24AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIt’s Halloween, but the boos at Doak Campbell Stadium won’t be scaring anyone. They’ll be directed at the Cook-less Seminoles, who find a way to lose their second consecutive game to a sub-.500 ACC team.

Police investigate double murder at amateur football Match in Brazil

first_imgPolice in northern Brazil say one man has been arrested after a referee who fatally stabbed a player during a match was decapitated by spectators who stormed the field.Local reports said the incident, which took place on 30 June in the remote Brazilian town of Pio XII, escalated when the player, 30-year-old Josenir dos Santos, became involved in an argument with the referee, Octavio da Silva.As the confrontation became physical and Dos Santos refused to leave the field, Da Silva allegedly produced a knife and stabbed the player, who died while being taken to hospital.Reports said that outraged spectators responded by running on to the field and stoning Da Silva, before severing his head and sticking it on a stake in the middle of the field.Police at the regional headquarters of Santa Ines said a 27-year-old man was arrested on 2 July, with the investigation continuing.Police spokesman Valter Costa was quoted as saying: “We will identify and hold accountable all those involved in this incident. One crime will never justify another. Actions like this do not correspond with state law.” Brazil faces mounting pressure to show it is a safe place for tourists before 12 cities host the 2014 World Cup and Rio de Janeiro the Olympics in 2016.The Confederations Cup in June was marked by violence as anti-government protestors angered by the amount of money being spent on the events clashed with police.last_img read more

We, the ladies, have been ignored for long by the previous administration, but we thank God for bringing Mr. Herbert Mensah on board with his massive support. Therefore we are also going to put in our best not to disappoint him”, she said.According to Mr. Mensah, the establishment of the Ghana Female Rugby Association (GFRA) is in an advanced stage and should be finalised early in 2016.“Women’s Rugby in Ghana will never reach its full potential without a dedicated rugby body that represents the interests of female rugby players and guide the development of women’s rugby in Ghana.
