TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Gov. Ron DeSantis is promosing another coronavirus testing site in southern Palm Beach County. And the Governor expects rapid testing to come to Florida ‘probably within the next week’“Now we’re surging supplies for the testing site in Hialeah and we’re surging supplies for a testing site in south Miami-Dade (County), so those are going to be coming online very soon,” DeSantis said during a news conference in Tallahassee. “We’re also going to be pushing down supplies and assisting with an additional testing site in southern Palm Beach County.”DeSantis didn’t say when the testing site would be operational, but the governor said he’s “looking forward to doing that.”Palm Beach County’s only current testing site opened Tuesday at the FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches in West Palm Beach. County officials said 255 people were tested Tuesday, with another 435 scheduled to be tested Wednesday.The announcement comes a day after DeSantis announced a “safer-at-home” order for Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. But several members of Congress representing Florida are urging DeSantis to issue a statewide shutdown.DeSantis said the number of tests administered daily throughout the state “has gone up dramatically.”

Dhaka (AFP) – Bangladesh Twenty20 team Chattogram Challengers Thursday called for action against West Indies star Chris Gayle if he fails to show for an upcoming tournament, after he said he was taking a break from cricket.Gayle was picked by the Challengers to play in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) from December 11.But he said after departing South Africa’s Mzansi Super League on Monday — following a pitiful campaign for Jozi Stars — that he was surprised his name had been included in the squad, adding that he planned to “take a break” from the sport.“I am not going to the Big Bash (Australia’s T20 league). I’m not sure what cricket will come up, I don’t even know how my name reached the BPL, but I have been drafted in a team and I don’t even know how that happened,” he told ESPNcricinfo.Challengers team director Jalal Yunus said his team had held negotiations with Gayle’s agent after the former West Indies captain was picked.“His agent confirmed Chris was aware about it,” Yunus said.“Now if he does not come, we will seek a player outside the draft. But I feel (Bangladesh Cricket Board) BCB should take action in such cases to keep discipline.”He added that the team had not heard from Gayle for several days ahead of his comments on Monday.Bangladesh Cricket Board chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury told reporters Wednesday they checked the drafting process and found no fault with Gayle’s inclusion.“We maintain all the standard procedures when any national cricketer’s name came for the players’ draft,” Nizamuddin said.“Either a player or his agent can show his interest and put the name in the list.“I have checked the process and everything was done according to a standard process.”Gayle played in several editions of the BPL and is the tournament’s highest run scorer among foreign players with 1,338 runs.He also has the highest number of sixes, at 120, double the second-highest by Bangladesh’s Tamim Iqbal.
Published on March 23, 2017 at 12:55 am Contact Matt: email@example.com Sammy Fernandez is only one swipe shy of tying her career high in steals — with half a season to go.The junior leadoff hitter uses her speed and wit on the base paths as Syracuse’s (17-9, 3-3 Atlantic Coast) top base stealer for the second consecutive season. Fernandez leads the Orange with 13 swipes and ranks fifth in the ACC. Despite leading SU in steals last year, she’s getting better jumps, reacting quicker and timing pitchers better to be more of a threat at the top of the order.“Once you get that first stolen base,” Fernandez said, “it’s like, ‘Oh, you want to do it again.’”Fernandez has always been fast enough to steal, but hasn’t always been the runner that she is now. When she gets caught stealing, she said a poor jump and late reaction time slowed her down. To compensate, she’s taking better leads.Since October, Fernandez has worked twice per week on her jumps from first. She trains her reaction time and first step to ensure she’s early on her jumps. Leads are the most important part of stealing any base, she said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“That first step is basically what will determine if you’re out or safe,” Fernandez said.She trains her reaction time with situational drills and game-like experience. But the jump comes with heavy lifting. Fernandez works more with the team’s strength and conditioning coach, William Hicks, in the weight room building her explosiveness. She’s one half step faster, assistant coach Alisa Goler estimates.“For someone like Sammy who came in and already was blessed with some speed,” Goler said, “working in the weight room and just strengthening the muscles and just building up the endurance and the stamina … That’s probably why it’s translated.”The difference shows in her stolen base numbers (13) compared to her first two seasons’ combined total (20). Fernandez also is on pace to shatter her career high in runs (29). Through 26 games she already sits at team-high 24 runs.Fernandez’s increased activity on the base paths spurs offensive production from the two, three and four hitters. Alicia Hansen hits in the two-hole behind Fernandez. When Fernandez gets on base, Hansen said she’s more comfortable. Pitchers tend to throw more strikes when someone is on base.“It’s really important to have a base runner like her,” Hansen said. “You can trust her on the bases.”While she’s not at the plate, Fernandez studies the opposition. She reads the outfielders to see how deep they are. She looks at the pitcher’s grip and studies her windup to see if she can jump on a changeup and steal second. Then she looks at head coach Mike Bosch for the sign.“I feel like I have the green light with my speed,” Fernandez said. “The coaches will always like aggressiveness on the bases.”The coaches especially notice her speed and aggressiveness during practice. Bosch clocks the players regularly on their times going around the bases in all different combinations. Fernandez consistently ranks among the top competitors. She’s carried that into games in becoming a threat to opponents.“They always say, you don’t have to be fast, you just have to be a smart base runner,” said senior two-way player Sydney O’Hara. “But she’s both.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+

The Saints Men’s Hockey program recently announced forward Colin Minardi (Summerland, B.C.) has committed to join the team for the remainder of the 2012/13 BCIHL season.Minardi has transferred to Selkirk from Finlandia University in Hancock, Michigan, where he spent the first half of the season playing NCAA Division III hockey for the Lions.The 21-year old played nine games during the fall semester, picking up five assists and 19 penalty minutes. “Colin is a skilled and versatile forward who can play either at centre or on the wing,” said Saints head coach Jeff Dubois.”Like any player who joins midway through the season he’s going to have to earn his opportunities, but he has all the tools to be an impact player for us both this year and in future seasons.” Prior to his time at Finlandia, Minardi spent three seasons in the KIJHL with the North Okanagan Knights and Summerland Steam. He picked up 46 goals and 63 assists in 122 regular season games, including 30 points in 24 games as the Steam’s captain last season. At the trade deadline he was dealt to the VIJHL’s Victoria Cougars, where he added 17 points and helped the team to a league championship. “I’m looking forward to playing for Selkirk while furthering my education,” said Minardi, who describes himself as a strong two-way player.”I’ve heard great things about Coach Dubois and the guys on the team; it sounds like they are all hard working and that’s big for me. I enjoy working hard and being pushed by my teammates to be better. Plus the team’s record speaks for itself.” The 12-0 Saints next home game is scheduled for Saturday, January 12 when second place Simon Fraser University visits the Castlegar Recreation Complex.Faceoff is set for 7:30 p.m. It’s not like the Selkirk Saints are a struggling hockey team needing help to right the ship.But the undefeated B.C.
