The Library, Directed by Steven Soderbergh, Starts Previews

first_img The Library tells the story of Caitlin Gabriel (Moretz), a survivor of a deadly high school shooting. She struggles to tell her story to her parents, the authorities or anyone who will listen. But there are other narratives that gain purchase in the media and paint her in a different light. The play asks us to examine our relationship to the truth and the lies that claim to heal us. Related Shows Moretz will be joined by Emmy nominee Lili Taylor, Tony nominee Jennifer Westfeldt, Ben Livingston, Michael O’Keefe, Daryl Sabara, David Townsend and Tamara Tunie.

Dengue cases now below alert threshold

first_imgILOILO – With dengue cases dropping,Gov. Arthur Defensor Jr. plans to lift the dengue outbreak declaration he madein July last year. “There is an epidemic threshold andalert threshold. By the 49th morbidity week, we were already below the alertlevel,” said Trabado. The number of cases was now below the“alert threshold”, said Provincial Health Office’s (PHO) Dr. Patricia GraceTrabado. Dengue is a mosquito-borne viralinfection causing a severe flu-like illness that could sometimes be fatal. Itscarriers are day-biting mosquitoes (Aedesalbpictus and Aedes aegypti) thatlive and breed and clean, stagnant water. Data from the provincial government’sHospital Management Office showed nine dengue patients remaining in districthospitals and there were no more new dengue hospital admissions. On the other hand, the five areas withthe least number of cases were San Joaquin (122 cases with one death), Tubungan(150 cases with one death), San Rafael (152 cases), Guimbal (167 cases with onedeath), and Batad (185 cases). These 24 LGUs were Cabatuan, PassiCity, Maasin, Sara, Ajuy, Leon, Janiuay, San Dionisio, Banate, Concepcion,Leganes, Tigbauan, Miag-ao, Dueñas, Igbaras, New Lucena, Mina, Zarraga,Bingawan, Barotac Viejo, San Enrique, Lemery, San Rafael, and Tubungan. Last year from Jan. 1 to Dec. 14 PHOrecorded 22,040 dengue cases with 78 deaths. This was 882 percent higher than2018’s PHO-recorded 2,244 cases with six deaths and 2017’s 1,321 cases witheight deaths.center_img The surge in dengue cases last yearresulted to hospitals bursting at the seams with patients. There was a shortagein hospital rooms, beds, doctors, and nurses. The demand for blood (for bloodtransfusion to dengue patients) also spiked. Five areas with the most number ofcases were Pototan (1,464 cases with 12 deaths), Calinog (955 cases with threedeaths), Dumangas (954 cases with two deaths), Cabatuan (927 cases with fivedeaths), and Passi City (896 cases with one death). She said the “4S” campaign must besustained – search and destroy mosquito breeding places; self-protectionmeasures; seek early consultation for fever lasting more than two days; and say“no” to indiscriminate fogging./PN But despite the steep drop in denguecases, Trabado urged Ilonggos not to let their guard down because dengue hasbecome a year-round illness. By the 50th morbidity week (Dec. 8 to 14,2019), PHO recorded 36 cases and 24 of Iloilo’s 43 local government units(LGUs) recorded no new cases.last_img read more

Huth sidelined for several weeks

first_img “We hoped that we would be able to manage him through it to be perfectly honest, but it looks like he will have to have an operation on it, so we are going to lose him for a number of weeks.” Hughes, who was speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of Saturday’s top-flight trip to Everton, will also be without forward Marko Arnautovic for the game. Hughes said: “Marko pulled up with a hamstring strain, so he is out as well. “We hope to get him back sooner rather than later, but he will be missing.” Defender Marc Wilson (hip), midfielder Stephen Ireland (shin) and striker Kenwyne Jones (shoulder) are all expected to be available again after sitting out the Sunderland match. Huth came off in the second half of Saturday’s 2-0 Barclays Premier League win over Sunderland at the Britannia Stadium. And giving an update on the German centre-half’s condition on Friday, Hughes said: “Unfortunately Robert Huth has got a problem with his knee. Stoke boss Mark Hughes has confirmed Robert Huth is set to be out of action for “a number of weeks” due to a knee injury, with it looking likely the Potters defender will undergo surgery.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Mourinho: I ‘ll Not Repeat My Past Mistakes at Spurs

first_img“I realised I made mistakes,” he said.“I’m not going to make the same mistakes. “I’ll make new mistakes – but not the same.”Mourinho, who would not be drawn on what mistakes he was referring to, added: “”I am humble, humble enough to try and analyse my career – not just the last year, but the whole thing, the evolution, the problems and the solutions. Not to blame anyone else.“It was a great thing. I went really deep with that analysis. A break was very positive for me. It was the first summer I did not work and I felt a little bit at a loss during that pre-season.“I was always humble, in my way. The problem is you didn’t understand that.”The 56-year-old’s time at Manchester United came to an end last December with the club 19 points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool.Mourinho had also reportedly fallen out with £89m signing Paul Pogba and was criticised by fans towards the end of his tenure for playing dull, defensive football.The former Porto, Chelsea and Real Madrid manager’s departure from Old Trafford continued his run of having never completed four consecutive seasons in charge of a club.“When I don’t win I cannot be happy and I cannot change that,” Mourinho added. “That is my DNA.“I hope I can influence my players, because if you are happy losing football matches it is very hard to be a winner.“Sometimes you have to work with people you don’t love and work well. I have principles that I cannot change and one of those is that I don’t think I can change.”Mourinho spent nearly £400m on 11 players during his two years at Manchester United, but believes he has already inherited a quality squad at Spurs.“The best gift for me, I don’t need players,” he added. “I am happy with the ones I have.“I just need more time with them. I know them well from playing against them, but you never know them well enough.”The 56-year-old takes charge of a Spurs side that are 14th in the Premier League with just three league wins all season.However, he is confident the club’s fortunes will soon turn around and they will be back challenging at the top of the table in the near future.He said: “We cannot win the Premier League this season, but we can win it next season. Not will, but can.”Despite Tottenham’s poor start to the season, Pochettino’s departure on Tuesday had come as a surprise to many with the club having reached the Champions League final – where they lost to Liverpool – just six months earlier.Mourinho paid tribute to his predecessor, saying: “I have to congratulate him for the work he has done.“This club will always be his home. This training ground will always be his training ground. The door will always be open for him.“He can come when he wants. When he misses the players, when he misses the people he worked with. The door is always open for him.“He will find happiness again. He will find a great club again. He will have a great future.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram New Tottenham Manager, Jose Mourinho, insisted yesterday that he will not make the same mistakes at Spurs that he did in previous managerial roles.The Portuguese replaced Mauricio Pochettino on Wednesday, ending an 11-month spell out of management following his sacking by Manchester United.Mourinho described himself as humble in his first news conference as Spurs boss, saying he spent his time away from football analysing his career.last_img read more
