Wolf’s Process to Reopen Pennsylvania includes details of each phase of reopening.Yellow PhaseAs regions or counties move into the yellow phase, some restrictions on work and social interaction will ease while others, such as closures of schools, gyms, and other indoor recreation centers, hair and nail salons, as well as limitations around large gatherings, remain in place.The purpose of this phase is to begin to power back up the economy while keeping a close eye on the public health data to ensure the spread of disease remains contained to the greatest extent possible.Work and Congregate Setting RestrictionsTelework Must Continue Where FeasibleBusinesses with In-Person Operations Must Follow Business and Building Safety OrdersChild Care May Open Complying with GuidanceCongregate Care and Prison Restrictions in PlaceSchools may provide in-person instruction only in accordance with Department of Education guidanceSocial RestrictionsStay-at-Home Order Lifted for Aggressive MitigationLarge Gatherings of More than 25 ProhibitedIn-Person Retail Allowable, Curbside and Delivery PreferableIndoor Recreation, Health and Wellness Facilities and Personal Care Services (such as gyms, spas, hair salons, nail salons and other entities that provide massage therapy), and all Entertainment (such as casinos, theaters) Remain ClosedRestaurants and Bars May Open Outdoor Dining, in Addition to Carry-Out and Delivery (effective 6/5/2020)Green PhaseAfter a county transitions to the yellow phase, we will closely monitor for increased risk, such as significant outbreaks. If overall risk remains mitigated for 14 days, we will transition the county to the green phase.The green phase eases most restrictions by lifting the stay-at-home and business closure orders to allow the economy to strategically reopen while continuing to prioritize public health.While this phase will facilitate a return to a “new normal,” it will be equally important to continue to monitor public health indicators and adjust orders and restrictions as necessary to ensure the spread of disease remains at a minimum.Work and Congregate Settings RestrictionsContinued Telework Strongly EncouragedBusinesses with In-Person Operations Must Follow Updated Business and Building Safety RequirementsAll Businesses Operating at 50% Occupancy in the Yellow Phase May Increase to 75% OccupancyChild Care May Open Complying with GuidanceCongregate Care Restrictions in PlacePrison and Hospital Restrictions Determined by Individual FacilitiesSchools Subject to CDC and Commonwealth GuidanceSocial RestrictionsLarge Gatherings of More Than 250 ProhibitedRestaurants and Bars Open at 50% OccupancyPersonal Care Services (including hair salons and barbershops) Open at 50% Occupancy and by Appointment OnlyIndoor Recreation, Health and Wellness Facilities, and Personal Care Services (such as gyms and spas) Open at 50% Occupancy with Appointments Strongly EncouragedAll Entertainment (such as casinos, theaters, and shopping malls) Open at 50% OccupancyConstruction Activity May Return to Full Capacity with Continued Implementation of ProtocolsThe latest business guidance can be found here.The Governor’s amended yellow phase order can be found here.The Governor’s amended green phase order can be found here.The Secretary of Health’s amended yellow phase order can be found here.The Secretary of Health’s amended green phase order can be found here.Ver esta página en español.

2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup Final – USA vs Jamaica

first_imgAfter 24 matches which produced a total of 51 goals (2.13 per match), the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup is into its final stage and will feature hosts, USA against Jamaica.Road to final:UNITED STATES – Grouped alongside Panama, Nicaragua, and Martinique.They were the number one candidate tipped to finish as group winners – a feat which was made manifest following their performance albeit starting on shaking grounds. Their campaign began with a surprise (1-1) draw against Panama, and then a (3-2) win against Martinique, before a solid (3-0) win in the final game against Nicaragua to finish top of Group B. In the Quarter-final, it was a familiar foe in Panama, this time they edged the tie (1-0), before dispatching Costa Rica (2-0) in the semi-final.JAMAICA – Grouped alongside El Salvador, Curaçao, and Mexico.The reggae boyz began their campaign with a (2-0) ease past Curaçao, before a (0-0) score line against Mexico and (1-1) draw in the final group tie with El Salvador. They defeated Canada (2-1) in the Quarter-final which setup a Group C re-match in the semis against Mexico. An 88th minute strike from Kemar Lawrence was enough to eliminate the defending champions.Heading into their 10th Gold Cup final, there’s a lot of pressure on Bruce Arena’s side; a defeat would be bitter pill to swallow for the locals who believe the reggae boyz shouldn’t be hard nuts to crack. This would be Jamaica’s second final in two years after finishing as Runner-up in the 2015 edition. A complete contrast when compared to their opposition who are five time champions.Players to Watch:Clint Dempsey (USA) > The experienced leg hasn’t played too many fixtures lately for the ‘The Stars and Stripes’ but his presence always counts when he’s introduced.Romario Williams (Jamaica) > The Charleston Battery forward has been responsible for helping the team pull the chestnut out of the fire’ all tournament long. If the USA defenders fall short in their duties on Wednesday, he’d likely add to his two tournament goals.The final would be played at Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara, on July 26, 2017.My Prediction: USA 2-0 JamaicaPicture Credit: AP’Related2017 Gold Cup – Enters Semi-final PhaseJuly 21, 2017In “AFCON Insider”2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup: All You Need To KnowJuly 12, 2017In “AFCON Insider”2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifying Wrap (CONCACAF): Favourites US Miss Out; Panama QualifyOctober 11, 2017In “FIFA”last_img read more

ST EUNAN’S COLLEGE SCOOP TOP AWARD IN F1 SCHOOLS COMPETITION

first_imgAt ICS Tech Week 2016 was Dynamic Racing-St Eunan’s College, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal; who won the award for Best Portfolio at the Tech Week F1 in schools final at the RDS on the 28th of April 2016. Picture Conor McCabe. More information contact Philip Jones, MKC Communications on 01 7038614 / [email protected] Eunan’s College, Letterkenny have scooped a top award at the Tech Week 2016 F1 in schools competition. Competing against 20 other schools, Dynamic Racing won the award for Best Portfolio at the National Finals held in the RDS.The competition which involved racing on a 20-metre track, with model cars reaching scale speeds of up to 350km/h was hotly contested by some truly innovative designs. The F1 in Schools challenge is not all about speed, competing teams are also judged on the quality of their engineering, graphic design, resource management, portfolio, media skills, handling of sponsorship and verbal presentation of their work.The competition inspires students to use IT to learn about physics, aerodynamics, design, manufacture, branding, graphics, sponsorship, marketing, leadership, teamwork, media skills and financial strategy, and apply them in a practical, imaginative, and exciting way.Organised by the Irish Computer Society, Tech Week 2016 involved over 90,000 primary and post-primary pupils all over Ireland in a huge range of fun activities.It is sponsored by Science Foundation Ireland and Salesforce.org and supported by Google, Puca and Institute of Physics in Ireland. Tech Week provides hands-on opportunities to learn about how computing and related technology are shaping every area of life.The aim is to stimulate thinking around future opportunities for study and careers in technology, through learning in the wider areas of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects.Jim Friars, CEO, Irish Computer Society said, “It is absolutely fantastic that so many students participated in Tech Week 2016.“We hope that they learned a lot during the week, gained confidence in their ability to make technology a part of their future and of course we hope they had lots of fun”.“The current generation of children and teens are ‘digital natives’ but instead of just using technology it’s important for them to understand that it can enable and enrich their lives through their own productivity and creativity. “Tech Week is a fun festival of technology with a serious ambition.  Ireland needs over 45,000 skilled new ICT professionals by 2018 to fuel the continuing growth of our economy.“We want young people and parents to understand the opportunity that exists and to figure out if technology is for them at an early stage.  They can then choose the right subjects and make college decisions on an informed basis around all that technology has to offer.”Tech Week 2016 aimed to encourage female students in particular to explore technology.  Currently less than 20% of computing students are female which is truly surprising as the tech sector is full of equal opportunities.Tech Week 2016 has created a series of videos of technology industry participants which can be accessed through www.techweek.ie During Tech Week, the RDS was the venue for super events and competition finals on 28th of April including the F1 in Schools finals (pupils use 3D CAD to design and race model F1 cars), the BizFactor entrepreneurial finals for primary schools, Scratch Coding Finals and a myriad of gadgets, gizmos, talks and technology.ST EUNAN’S COLLEGE SCOOP TOP AWARD IN F1 SCHOOLS COMPETITION was last modified: May 5th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:competitionF1newsschoolsSportSt Eunan’s Colllegelast_img read more
