MANILA – Two of the five Filipinosfrom a Japanese cruise ship quarantined in Tarlac province tested negative fromthe coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) despite showing symptoms, according tothe Department of Health (DOH). Filipino crew members of Diamond Princess disembarked the quarantined ship in Japan on Tuesday afternoon. They were transported from the Yokohama Port, where the cruise ship has been docked for weeks, to the Haneda Airport. CNN PH “All Filipinos under quarantine are monitored twice a day to see if any of them would develop flu-like symptoms. Once any of them would exhibit signs and symptoms, they would be immediately referred to designated hospitals,” Vergeire said. The five Filipino crew members wereall from the Diamond Princess cruiseship where over 700 passengers and staff tested positive for COVID-19 duringtheir mandatory 14-day quarantine in the vessel. The three, along with 455 others, were brought home from Japan to New Clark City in Capas, Tarlac on Tuesday evening to undergo another quarantine. The two were cleared while stillawaiting the test results of the three other Filipino repatriates who havecough and cold, said Assistant Secretary Maria Rosario Vergeire. The Philippines has an existing travel ban on China and its special administrative regions Hong Kong and Macau. It also recently imposed a partial travel ban on South Korea./PN Meanwhile, DOH secretary Francisco Duque III said there is a possibility that the Philippines will also impose travel restrictions to Japan with the increasing number of coronavirus cases there. Seventy Filipino crew members of the Diamond Princess who tested positive for the coronavirus remain admitted in hospitals in Tokyo, Japan while 10 have recovered and were discharged.

Never mind, we all had a good day tackling the A+B layoutsThe scores were a bit tame today as Mick Folan took the top spot in A Flight and the man of the match honours with a solid even par round. Mick was followed closely up the podium steps by Vic Wright who was just one stroke adrift.

The course was in its usual great condition and the weather remained dry but excessively humid throughout the day.This did not deter Jimmy ‘two shots’ Elphick as he played one of the best rounds of his life, scoring four points each on five separate holes, admittedly with two shots on the holes (hence his nickname), one being a chip in off the green on hole C6 followed by another four pointer, a par on C7 a par on C8 for three points, but he had to settle for a bogey on the last hole C9. This gave him 22 points on the front nine and 21 on the back, for a total of 43 points and man of the match honours.Ian Steele posted a fine even par round for the silver, as Co.

THE IMPORTANCE OF a healthy school lunch cannot be emphasized enough. Students, especially young children whose bodies are reaching key stages of development, need the correct vitamins and nutrients to stay energized and focused throughout the long school day. It is very important that students are fueled properly and practice healthy eating habits from a young age. These behaviors will carry into adulthood and have a dramatic influence on the rest of their lives.According to Lisa Testa, a holistic nutritional consultant of Healthier You, a healthy lunch consists of fruits, vegetables and a lean protein, either nut-based or meat-based, such as turkey or chicken. She also noted that it is much better to pair the meal with water rather than a sugary soda or juice. The aim is to craft a lunch that is “well-rounded and creates sustainable energy,” said Testa.Some specific examples she provided are soup in a thermos, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich – with natural peanut butter and sugar free jelly – and turkey with lettuce and tomato on whole grain bread. These lunches, rounded out with a fruit and vegetable snack such as snap peas, carrot sticks or bell peppers, are just a few of the many well-balanced choices available.The key to providing students with lunches that are both healthy and tasty is replacing unhealthy elements with better alternatives that children will still enjoy. Overly sugary, fatty and processed foods lead to an unhealthy rise and fall in blood sugar and usually can be substituted for a more nutritious option. Treats do not need to be avoided completely; rather, they should be viewed as a special occurrence instead of an everyday staple.Testa also encouraged the use of organic fruits and vegetables to stay away from as many harmful pesticides as possible. This can be expensive, however, so it is important to prioritize what to buy organically. For example, a banana’s thick skin helps protects the fruit from dangerous chemicals while buying fruits such as grapes and berries organically should be more carefully considered. Prices vary at different markets as well, so it may be more beneficial to buy produce at some stores than others.Providing healthy options for students is vital to the success and well-being of children. “It completely changes your demeanor,” said Testa regarding the importance of good nutrition. “Your attentiveness, your energy and your mood all depend on the quality of what you eat.”Easy swaps, such as whole grain bread instead of white or fruit instead of candy, can make a big difference. Healthy lifestyles can begin at any age, so why not start as early as possible?“We all know that it is important to give your school-aged children healthy lunches because their growing bodies require the nutrients, but developing healthy eating habits is just as important,” said Tori Sickles, marketing manager of Sickles Market. Markets like Sickles often offer boxed lunches “to help provide quick, healthy alternatives when Moms and Dads are too busy to make their own.” By Claire Toomey
By John Burton |RED BANK — A mid-morning crash of an SUV into the former Red Bank home of Visiting Nurse Association Health Group was continuing to snarl traffic into the early afternoon.A late model beige Chevrolet Tahoe, according to Red Bank police, traveling north on Riverside Avenue, ran into 176 Riverside Ave., a two-story structure located just south of the Route 35 traffic-signaled intersection. The crash occurred at approximately 10:20 a.m., according to police.The vehicle crashed through a window area, with the vehicle’s front portion became lodged inside the structure.According to Police Chief Darren McConnell, the SUV was being driven by an approximately 50-year-old male, accompanied by a female front-seat passenger in her 70s. The vehicle was registered to a Holmdel address. McConnell did not have their identities available.The two were transported to Riverview Medical Center to be treated for head and neck injuries that McConnell labeled “non-life threatening.”“It appears he just lost control of the vehicle,” McConnell said of the driver.The car accident attracted an unusual amount of media attention, with NJ State Police and Univision helicopters hovering overhead, and news crews from News12, CBS, NBC and other news outlets on the scene.The Middletown Emergency Services’ Special Services provided assistance and was bracing the building front facade to allow for the SUV to be removed, according to Red Bank Fire Marshal Stanley Sickels.That portion of the building was unoccupied at the time of the crash, Sickels said.The extent of the building’s damage was unknown at this point, he added.Emergency vehicles parked out front of the location, resulting in blocking one northbound traffic lane, backing up traffic on the heavily traveled Riverside Avenue.The location had been home to the Visiting Nurse Association until the organization relocated to Holmdel earlier this year.
Annette: Why is the HH10 significant to the future of healthy, sustainable residential interiors?Leslie: Healthy Home 2010 is a significant contribution to our understanding of sustainability as a whole. I think a lot of homeowners and consumers out there think that green equals healthy. Actually, that’s not always the case. Right now, there are so many different attributes that contribute to sustainable design that often some of the most important aspects, like health, are overlooked. If chemicals in the air we breathe have the potential to make us sniffle, give us a headache, or even trigger an asthma attack, do we really want our families to spend the majority of their days in an environment brimming with airborne chemicals? And yet, in most green building programs, achieving good indoor air quality is merely an “extra point,” or option, for sustainability. Why is that?The fact is, if our homes don’t have good indoor air quality, then we don’t function well inside them. The Healthy Home 2010 project team gets this. They made indoor air quality one of their top priorities and incorporated elements of the GREENGUARD IEQ Management Plan for Residential Construction, which outlined step-by-step processes for improving the home’s indoor air quality. They also specified many GREENGUARD Certified low-emitting materials. So, not only did they follow the LEED for Homes guidelines for energy and water conservation, site selection, and material use, but they also made a concerted effort to enhance the home’s indoor air quality.It’s been a process, and it wasn’t easy. But I think we, as a society, are starting to really grasp how extremely important human health is as a core component of sustainable, “green” homes.Annette: How does this project bridge the gap between green construction and healthy interiors?Leslie: I think it’s really tempting for society as a whole to oversimplify and boil down the concept of sustainability into one word: green. But what does that really mean?Unfortunately, there’s so much confusion in the marketplace about what green really means and whether green always equals healthy. In fact, green does not always equal healthy. A green product may have some degree of benefit to the planet or the outdoor environment while having a negative impact on our indoor environment and, subsequently, our health. For example, sometimes sealing up our homes to save energy can have a detrimental effect on our indoor air quality simply because there is no way for air pollutants to get out of the house. This just shows that sustainable attributes don’t always play well together—an example of the “sin of hidden tradeoffs,” according to Terra Choice’s “The Seven Sins of Greenwashing.”Achieving a peaceful co-existence between “ecologically green” and “indoor environmentally green” requires a bit more time, energy, and research. That’s where Healthy Home 2010 comes in. Healthy Child Healthy World, in collaboration with the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute, has created a model of a healthier, more sustainable home that emphasizes good indoor air quality and serves as a model for others to follow and build upon. The project team followed many of GREENGUARD’s construction, design, and specification suggestions, including incorporating a number of GREENGUARD Certified low-emitting materials. As a result, the home is both high-style and energy efficient without compromising its indoor air quality. Is it perfect? No. There’s always room for improvement. But what the project does is get us thinking about ways we can create an ecologically green home without ignoring the basic fundamentals of human health. Up until now, I think a lot of the mainstream green homes haven’t really taken their indoor environmental quality (IEQ) to this level.Annette: What are you most excited about for the future of high-performing, healthy buildings, and how is GREENGUARD addressing these areas?Leslie: What I love about the sustainable realm is that it really is a dynamic field. We discover new ways of building and living sustainably every single day, and I think the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute recognizes that there is always room for improvement and growth with such a fluid green world. That’s science for you. There’s always more to discover, and—though overwhelming at times—that’s what makes the concept of sustainability so exciting.The GREENGUARD Certification Program has identified over 10,000 chemicals that off-gas from products. Still, thousands of new chemicals are introduced into the marketplace every day—most of which have not yet been assessed for their health impacts. That’s why the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute takes a precautionary approach. The GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification puts a cap not only on emissions of individual chemicals, such as formaldehyde, but also on the collective emissions of all chemicals off-gassing from a product. This significantly minimizes our exposure to the chemicals that the global science community doesn’t yet fully understand. It’s a safeguard that we have in place. And that’s how we contribute to better indoor air quality in the human environment.I think the public is really beginning to educate themselves now, too. They aren’t just buying the product with a green leaf slapped on the side of it. They’re asking how and why a green claim is really green. We’re exploring new opportunities to contribute to our environment rather than leech from it, and this is reflected in the homes, schools, and offices we inhabit. We’re demanding more from our built surroundings without taking more from the natural ones. We’re realizing that our human health is key to environmental conservation. After all, if we’re not keeping our families and ourselves healthy indoors, who will be around to enjoy the outdoors?+++Thank you, Leslie! Your expertise and passion are an incredible value in educating and transforming the building industry. I enjoyed our dialogue and look forward to connecting again soon.Stay tuned for the next HH10 blog about which products with third-party certifications assure healthy indoor air quality. To create healthy and sustainable interiors for our clients, it is essential that we understand how to enhance indoor air quality, tapping into IAQ-specific resources and expertise. GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) is at the top of my resource list.Recently I had the opportunity to interview Leslie Gage, market segment manager for GREENGUARD. Leslie is GEI’s in-house architectural consultant and sustainable design expert guiding the outreach and education efforts to communities such as architecture and design, construction, and schools. She is also a LEED advocate and specifications author for enhanced indoor air quality in buildings.Annette: Leslie, what is the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute’s focus?Leslie: The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute aims to protect human health and improve quality of life by enhancing indoor air quality and reducing people’s exposure to chemicals and other pollutants. As an ISO-IEC Guide 65:1996 accredited, third-party organization, the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute certifies products and materials for low chemical emissions and provides a resource for choosing healthier products and materials for indoor environments. All certified products must meet stringent chemical emissions standards based on established criteria from key public health agencies. GREENGUARD Certification is broadly recognized and accepted by sustainable building programs and building codes worldwide.

A 17-year-old boy, who was allegedly set on fire in Uttar Pradesh’s Chandauli district two days ago for not chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’, succumbed to his injuries on Tuesday, the police said. Mohammad Khalid, a resident of Saiyad Raja town, around 350 km southeast of Lucknow, had alleged that he was kidnapped on Sunday by four men, who poured kerosene and set him on fire for not chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’, a charge denied by the police. Khalid, who sustained nearly 50% burn injuries, was admitted to a nearby hospital and then referred to government hospital in Varanasi. He died in the morning, the police said.The deceased’s father also alleged that his son was set afire for not chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’. Police denies allegationChandauli Superintendent of Police Santosh Kumar Singh, however, had denied the allegation and said the teenager changed his statements three times. “When the police recorded his statement in the district hospital, he gave contradictory replies. He also gave different statements to different people,” Mr. Singh said. “It seems that he had been tutored to mould the issue to get attention,” the SP claimed, adding that the police had checked the CCTV footage and an investigation was on.

With so much uncertainty about James’ future, Cleveland may not be an attractive destination to veterans who have other options.But James’ immediate future is clear. He said Tuesday after a 116-98 loss in Orlando that he would not waive his no-trade clause and would finish the season in Cleveland.“I couldn’t give up on my teammates like that. I just couldn’t do it,” James said. “We put too much into the game every single day.”They’re just not getting enough out of it.ADVERTISEMENT Slow and steady hope for near-extinct Bangladesh tortoises LATEST STORIES The Cavaliers are a team that’s deeply in a rut and badly in need of a change to jump-start a season that shows signs of slipping away. But they’re down to their final hours to find help via trade, with the deadline set for Thursday afternoon.Impact players are traded, but this season the biggest ones may have already been moved. Jimmy Butler, Chris Paul, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony all were dealt over the summer, as was Kyrie Irving — in a move that may have backfired for the Cavs. Their former point guard has led Boston to the top of the Eastern Conference, while Isaiah Thomas has struggled in the brief time he’s been available since returning from his hip injury.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutCleveland also acquired the Brooklyn Nets’ No. 1 pick in that deal, a likely high lottery selection. But the type of names most heavily mentioned in the days before this year’s deadline — such as the Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams, and Memphis’ Tyreke Evans — aren’t worth such a coveted asset. They can certainly help teams but maybe not ones who seem as far off track as the Cavs, who have dropped 14 of 21 and are barely hanging on to a spot in the top four of the Eastern Conference.The deadline was moved up this season, with the NBA feeling it would give players who are dealt a chance to use the All-Star break to get acclimated to their new situations. The deadline previously was at the end of the break, and it sure looks like the Cavs wouldn’t want to wait that long this season. Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Video: The Courier-Journal Made A Trippy Cartoon Music Video Of John Calipari’s “Enough Talking, Let’s Ball” Speech
The Courier-JournalBack in October during “Big Blue Madness,” John Calipari kicked off this Kentucky basketball season with the phrase “enough talking, let’s ball,” followed by a mic drop. At 16-0, they’ve certainly done that, and now Calipari’s “Let’s Ball” had been turned into a very trippy 8-bit music video by the folks at The Courier-Journal. Would it shock anyone if this started playing at Rupp before games? Not us. We expect that it’ll get pretty big with the Kentucky bar and house party scene as well if the ‘Cats keep winning this year.[The Courier-Journal]
