DOH records 35% drop in firecracker injuries

first_imgHealth Secretary Francisco Duque said there was a 35 percent decline in fireworks-related injuries nationwide from Dec. 21, 2019 to Jan. 1, 2020. “We expect the number of cases to increase as there are late reports still coming from the regions,” Duque said. “Most additional injuries at this time come from children picking up unexploded fireworks from the streets.” MANILA – The numberof injuries due to fireworks has decreased in the run-up toNew Year’s Day 2020, according to the Department of Health (DOH). He added that most of the cases were recorded in Metro Manila. Duque renewed its call for a total ban in firecrackers use in the country as he admitted that more data is needed to support a draft bill on an absolute ban on any kind of firecrackers. Duque noted the 164 total of fireworks-related injuries tallied was lower than the 251 recorded in the same period last year but the numbers could still rise until the DOH ends its monitoring on Jan. 6. “Every firecracker, whether legal or not, can be injurious. We hope the Duterte administration will be able to create a legacy of an absolute ban on fireworks so we’ll have zero injuries,” Duque said. “Maraming ligtas na paraan para makapag ingay.”/PN No reported deaths due to firecrackers so far, Duque said. “But overall, the National CapitalRegion has registered a 16 percent drop in the number of fireworks-relatedinjuries,” the DOH secretary said, adding that only four percent of thefireworks-related injuries required amputation as most of the injury cases werejust burn and eye injuries. Children play with sparklers at Divisoria market in Manila on Tuesday. Authorities have banned the use of dangerous firecrackers, prompting New Year revelers to buy safer alternatives, such as party horns and harmless firecrackers. ABS-CBN NEWS Based on DOH’s data, top causes of firecracker injuries were due to kwitis, lusis, fountain fireworks, and piccolo. Most of the injuries happened from streets and residential homes.last_img read more

Cricket News Maharashtra government looks to build an institute in Achrekar’s memory

first_imgNew Delhi: Maharashtra Sports Minister Vinod Tawde said on Thursday that the state government was thinking of setting up an institute in the memory of renowned cricket coach Ramakant Achrekar who took his last breath on January 2. Achrekar, 87, whose students includes Sachin Tendulkar, Pravin Amre and Vinod Kambli, died of age-related ailments on Wednesday.His funeral sans state honours on Thursday morning raised eyebrows. Housing minister Prakash Mehta expressed regret over the same. Speaking to the reporters later, Tawde said the government was thinking of setting up an institute in Achrekar’s name. “We will be contacting his family soon,” he said.Tendulkar, who scored 18,426 runs in ODIs and 15,926 runs in Tests, is considered to be one of the greatest players in the modern era. Earlier in the year, Tendulkar had said coaches are like gurus. In 1990, Achrekar was honoured with the Dronacharya Award for Outstanding coaches in Sports and Games. He was honoured with one of the country’s highest civilian award, the Padma Shri in 2010. In the same year, he was honoured the “Lifetime Achievement” award by the Sports Illustrated by Gary Kirsten.Also See| In pics: Sachin, Kambli, Raj Thackeray attend Ramakant Achrekar’s funeralOn January 3, Tendulkar arrived at the funeral and it was a touching moment for everyone to see. As Achrekar’s funeral passed, at a particular ground, there was a fitting and symbolic tribute to the man who had given Indian cricket plenty of stars. On both sides, there were a group of young boys who raised a bat in salute to the achievements of Achrekar.Achrekar belonged to that near extinct tribe of cricket coaches, who gave quintessential talented middle-class boys hope and imparted knowledge that they carried a lifetime. It is believed that Achrekar would put a one rupee coin over stumps and challenge Tendulkar not to get bowled in order to earn the coin is a part of cricketing folklore. Tendulkar still maintains that those coins are priceless. It is also reported in Mumbai cricket circles that Tendulkar once got a “tight slap” for missing a match in order to watch the senior school team play a final match. “People should come to watch you rather you clapping from the stands,” Tendulkar recalled Achrekar’s words in a story that has been repeated often at various functions.

England set South Africa improbable target of 466 to win

first_imgBy Mark GleesonJOHANNESBURG (Reuters) – Captain Joe Root top scored as England took a huge 465-run lead over South Africa on the third day of the fourth Test and were bowled out for 248 just before stumps in their second innings at The Wanderers on Sunday.The score left them with two days to dismiss their hosts, who will have to chase an improbable fourth-innings target if they are to win the Test and level the series at 2-2.Fourteen wickets fell on a busy Sunday that saw South Africa dismissed for 183 at lunch, 217 runs behind England’s first-innings score of 400.Root did not enforce the follow on but instead rammed home his team’s advantage as England batted briskly in their second innings before the captain was the last man out, superbly caught by South African counterpart Faf du Plessis to give debutant Beuran Hendricks a maiden Test five-wicket haul.Root scored 58, Dom Sibley made 44, Sam Curran an entertaining 35 and Ben Stokes 28 with Hendricks finishing on 5-64 off 15.3 overs.Openers Zak Crawley and Sibley put on a 56-run opening-wicket partnership in a positive second-innings start before Crawley was out for 24.WORLD-RECORD TARGET Stokes was in belligerent mood, having been fined for verbally abusing a spectator after going cheaply in the first innings, and sought to get retribution as he raced to 28 off 24 balls, with six boundaries, before Hendricks had him caught in the slips.Curran also made up for a first baller in the first innings as he accelerated the run rate in the last hour before being caught in the deep off Hendricks.All the while Root kept the scoreboard ticking over to ensure South Africa will have to chase a world-record fourth innings target on a pitch where the bounce was becoming increasingly more uneven.South Africa bowled a man light when veteran Vernon Philander pulled up with a hamstring injury after nine balls, further weakening a home attack already sorely missing the suspended Kagiso Rabada.Philander was sent to hospital for a scan, said Cricket South Africa, threatening an inglorious end to his Test career as he is retiring from the international arena.Mark Wood completed a five-wicket haul earlier as South Africa were dismissed in the morning session, adding 95 runs to their overnight score.“I’m over the moon — a very special day,” said Wood, who credited a shorter run-up for his success.“Since I have (done that), it’s been a lot better. I’ve got a little bit more momentum; it’s taken pressure off my body. It’s been nice to take a load off.”ENGLAND 1st innings (400 all out)South Africa 1st inningsDean Elgar c Chris Woakes b Ben Stokes 26Pieter Malan c Jos Buttler b Mark Wood 15Rassie van der Dussen c Ben Stokes b Sam Curran 0Faf du Plessis lbw Chris Woakes 3Quinton de Kock b Mark Wood 76Temba Bavuma c Ben Stokes b Mark Wood 6Anrich Nortje c Joe Denly b Mark Wood 6Vernon Philander c Stuart Broad b Chris Woakes 4Dwaine Pretorius c Zak Crawley b Ben Stokes 37Beuran Hendricks Not Out 5Dane Paterson c Jos Buttler b Mark Wood 4Extras 0b 0lb 0nb 0pen 1w 1Total (68.3 overs) 183 all outFall of Wickets : 1-29 Malan, 2-37 van der Dussen, 3-43 Elgar, 4-60 du Plessis, 5-74 Bavuma, 6-88 Nortje, 7-93 Philander, 8-172 Pretorius, 9-174 de Kock, 10-183 PatersonBowling : Stuart Broad 14 – 3 – 27 – 0, Sam Curran 12 – 4 – 25 – 1,Chris Woakes 17 – 7 – 38 – 2, Mark Wood 14.3 – 2 – 46 – 5,Ben Stokes 11 – 1 – 47 – 2 (1w).ENGLAND 2nd inningsZak Crawley c Quinton de Kock b Dwaine Pretorius 24Dominic Sibley c Pieter Malan b Beuran Hendricks 44Joe Denly b Dane Paterson 8Joe Root c Faf du Plessis b Beuran Hendricks 58Ben Stokes c Rassie van der Dussen b Beuran Hendricks 28Ollie Pope c Quinton de Kock b Anrich Nortje 11Jos Buttler c Quinton de Kock b Anrich Nortje 8Sam Curran c Dane Paterson b Beuran Hendricks 35Chris Woakes c Quinton de Kock b Beuran Hendricks 0Mark Wood b Dwaine Pretorius 18Stuart Broad Not Out 1Extras 4b 8lb 0nb 0pen 1w 13Total (61.3 overs) 248 all outFall of Wickets : 1-56 Crawley, 2-75 Denly, 3-92 Sibley, 4-136 Stokes, 5-150 Pope, 6-160 Buttler, 7-206 Curran, 8-206 Woakes, 9-240 Wood, 10-248 RootBowling: Vernon Philander 1.3 – 1 – 1 – 0, Anrich Nortje 11 – 1 – 61 – 2,Dane Paterson 13.3 – 5 – 18 – 1, Beuran Hendricks 15.3 – 2 – 64 – 5,Dwaine Pretorius 18 – 2 – 87 – 2 (1w).last_img read more

Edo 2020: Five Mini-stadia Ready for National Sports Festival

first_imgAs the Edo State Government steps up preparation to host the 2020 National Sports Festival (NSF) scheduled to commence from March 20, construction work has been completed on five mini stadia to be used for the games.The five mini-stadia are part of the 20 mini-stadia being constructed by the Governor Godwin Obaseki-led administration to promote grassroots sports in the state. Speaking with journalists, Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Erimona Edorodion Oye, said the five mini-stadia in Edo South Senatorial Districts were delivered ahead of the hosting of the 2020 NSF games in the state.He said, “There are 20 mini-stadia across the state. We have two each in Oredo and Ikpoba-Okha Local Government Areas respectively, while the others are located in each of the other 16 LGAs.“We have gone far with the work on the mini-stadia. We have done about five of them. They are at Western Boys High School, Edo Boys High School and at Maria Goretti Girls Grammar School. Specifically, we have two at Edo Boys, one in Western Boys and then another in Maria Goretti.”He noted that work has been completed on the five mini-stadia in Edo State ahead of the NSF as they will be used as venues for hosting some of the 2020 NSF games in March.The commissioner assured that work will be completed on the other sites of the mini-stadia project, noting, “The idea of having the mini-stadia is to promote grassroots sports development in the state. The state government decentralised the facilities to allow members of the grassroots have easy access to sports centres to harness sports talents across the state.”Recall that as part of preparation to host the National Sports Festival Games, Governor Godwin Obaseki commissioned the secretariat complex for the event, a world-class edifice to serve as the coordinating venue for the competition which holds in different venues across Edo State.Also, physical infrastructure needed for the games are being completed at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium with base for the track being laid, as the football pitch is ready. Work at the tennis section is completed, while the swimming pools are being furnished.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
