How much to spend?The key sticking point, he said, remained how much to spend in total.”We don’t all know exactly where the economy is going… The most important thing is we give some relief quickly to the industries that are being impacted” by the downturn, Mnuchin said.The comments from Brainard echoed those made repeatedly by Fed Chair Jerome Powell and other central bankers, who have warned that monetary policy cannot address all the problems posed by the severe economic downturn.While the housing market is booming thanks to low interest rates, she noted that the recovery in employment – after tens of millions of jobs were lost in the early weeks of the pandemic – has stalled.”The longer COVID-19-related uncertainty persists, the greater the risk of shuttered businesses and permanent layoffs in some sectors,” she said in the event that featured the past two Fed chairs, Janet Yellen and Ben Bernanke.She said the new Fed policy that Powell unveiled last week, which shifts emphasis towards holding interest rates lower for longer and tolerating higher inflation in order to boost employment “will strengthen our support for the recovery.”The new policy is especially important for Black and Hispanic workers who tend to be the first laid off in a downturn and the last hired in a recovery, Brainard said.Topics : The White House and Congress have been deadlocked for weeks over a successor to the US$2.2 trillion CARES Act passed as the pandemic struck in March, and key provisions of the law including extra jobless payments and aid to small businesses expired at the end of July.President Donald Trump’s administration has balked at proposals from Democrats, who in May passed a $3 trillion spending package in the House of Representatives that remains in limbo in the Republican-controlled Senate.US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Monday said Republicans will soon unveil a new spending bill to aid the coronavirus-battered economy.And on Tuesday, he told House lawmakers that negotiators from both parties were in agreement on where more aid could go, including to the Paycheck Protection Program that provides loans and grants to small businesses, and for the cash-strapped US Postal Service. Government spending will be “essential” to help struggling Americans weather the downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic, Federal Reserve Governor Lael Brainard said Tuesday.With the White House and Congress still at an impasse over a new emergency relief package, Brainard warned that “the economy continues to face considerable uncertainty associated with the vagaries of the COVID-19 pandemic” and business shutdowns risk becoming permanent.Amid the uncertainty, “fiscal support will remain essential to sustaining many families and businesses” and in fact that support is “key” to the economic outlook, she said in speech to the Brookings Institution.

Herald Sun (Aust) 13 June 2012YOUNG parents are putting on weight at dangerous levels and are fatter than their childless peers. Almost two in three parents under 40 are overweight, compared with two in five young couples and 45 per cent of singles. Dads had the biggest weight problem, a survey of more than 1180 Australians has found. Three-quarters of dads were overweight or obese, based on their self-reported body mass index. This compared to 57-60 per cent of young and older mums, data compiled by health fund Bupa found. Bupa’s chief medical officer Dr Paul Bates said the challenges of balancing work and family could often come at the cost of parents’ health. But this can flow to children, who pick up their bad eating habitshttp://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/more-news/kids-make-you-fat-survey/story-fn7x8me2-1226393503463
An Australian Open that has been hit by weather extremes faced a new challenge on Thursday: dirty rain, after overnight downpours left courts muddy and unplayable. Workers armed with squeegees and high-pressure hoses rushed to clean the surfaces, delaying matches on most of the courts.

Switzerland’s Belinda Bencic was one of the few who were able to play on Thursday, as she beat Jelena Ostapenko on Margaret Court Arena, one of three stadiums with a retractable roof. “I’m super-happy to get the match out of the way. I didn’t know the (other) courts were, like, wet and dirty and all that. But for sure it was difficult today,” Bencic said. “It was sometimes sunny and then suddenly was almost raining. Then windy.

Extreme weather is a growing concern in Australia after the bushfire emergency of recent months, which has left 29 dead and ravaged vast swathes of the country, torching thousands of homes. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 The dirty rain, blamed on smoke hanging in the air from Australia’s raging bushfires, is just the latest hazard at a tournament that has been beset by meteorological mishaps. Further rain set back Thursday’s start still further, with most courts out of action until 3:00 pm (0400 GMT), four hours after they were due to begin. “Due to the rain and dust overnight the outside courts need high pressure cleaning,” organisers tweeted. “Our team is working across Melbourne Park to prepare the outside courts for play,” they added. Smog from the deadly wildfires hit hazardous levels during qualifying, leaving players with coughing fits and breathing problems and triggering a rash of complaints. Although the haze cleared before the tournament’s start on Monday it was replaced by torrential rain, which wiped out half of the day’s schedule and caused a backlog of matches. Strong winds then buffeted Melbourne Park on Wednesday, giving players further problems as balls blew off-course and wobbled in the air.
The intervention from the Iranian judicial authorities has left the FFIRI once again in the worldwide body’s crosshairs and could lead to FIFA suspending the organisation. A joint letter from FIFA and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) warned against outside interference in a Member Association, prohibited under FIFA’s statutes. “First and foremost, we would like to emphasise that FIFA and AFC are strongly opposing any use of legal threats and intimidation of any sort by anyone against a person or a group of persons, particularly in the context of an attempt to exercise undue authority over a Member Association, thus violating the latter’s autonomy,” FIFA secretary general Fatma Samoura wrote in the letter, according to the Anadolu Agency. FIFA and the AFC had given the FFIRI until yesterday to provide an explanation, but the troubled Iranian federation has asked the organisations for more time to clarify the situation. The FFIRI is already facing a possible FIFA suspension over Government interference in its statutes. The FFIRI’s statutes recently moved closer to being approved by FIFA, however, while the body is set to hold elections in November. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 FIFA has issued another warning to the Football Federation Islamic Republic of Iran (FFIRI) over interference in its affairs, amid concern regarding the involvement of the country’s judicial authorities in a dispute between the governing body and a former coach. Former Iran head coach Marc Wilmots filed a complaint with FIFA after quitting the position, claiming the FFIRI had committed “serious contractual violations”. World football’s governing body ordered the FFIRI to pay Wilmots, who signed a three-year contract in May 2019 but quit after six games in charge, a total of €6.2 million (£5.5 million/$7.3 million) as compensation for breach of contract. read also:De La: ‘FIFA, UEFA should step back’ Following the announcement from FIFA, the State Inspectorate Organisation of Iran reportedly referred eight members of the FFIRI Board of Directors – including former President Mehdi Taj – to the Tehran Prosecutor’s Office. The eight officials were charged with “damaging state property and public rights” in what has been described as the “Wilmots case”.Advertisement Loading…
Meanwhile, Gattuso has praised Osimhen for his recent form on front of goal, and has advised him to continue working hard. Osimhen has scored six goals in two pre-season matches for Napoli in the last few days, with the latest hat-trick coming in 4 – 0 win over Teramo on Friday. The 21-year-old is expected to lead the line for Napoli when they begin their adventure in the forthcoming 2020-2021 Italian Serie A season. Gattuso is delighted with how the player has adapted to his new environment, but he insists the 21-year-old must keep improving, in order to be ready for the new season. “Osimhen is a quiet guy who has to work a lot. He has a lot of physicalities but he doesn’t have to be satisfied. The goals he scores right now don’t count for anything, but he fits in very well with the group. He jokes with everyone and makes himself loved,” Gattuso told Kiss Kiss Napoli.

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Rohit Sharma smashed a maiden Test double century as he and centurion Ajinkya Rahane helped India reach 497 for nine before declaring on day two of the third and final test against South Africa on Sunday.The hosts then reduced South Africa to nine for two in their first-innings reply before bad light stopped play, with India chasing a series whitewash to consolidate their position at top of the World Test Championship.South Africa will have to produce an exceptional batting performance to get back into the contest when skipper Faf du Plessis and Zubayr Hamza return to the crease in Ranchi today.Resuming the day on 224-3, both Rohit and Rahane continued their largely risk-free accumulation.India were tottering at 39 for three on Saturday when the Mumbai duo combined and by the time Rahane fell for 115 in the morning session, their fourth-wicket stand had produced 267 runs to turn their first innings around in Ranchi.Rohit reverse-swept Dane Piedt for a boundary, while Rahane stepped out to hit the spinner over his head for a four as they asserted themselves.Rahane duly brought up his 11th test hundred before becoming debutant George Linde’s maiden test victim, edging the spinner and departing after a fluent knock which included 17 boundaries and a six.Rohit, the only batsman to have scored three ODI double-hundreds, appeared slightly jittery as he approached the 200-mark and nearly dragged a Kagiso Rabada delivery onto his stumps just before lunch.The elegant right-hander, however, shook off his nerves after the break and brought up his 200 just as he had reached his hundred — with a six, off Lungi Ngidi.Rohit celebrated the milestone with his sixth six but fell trying to repeat the shot against Rabada. Rohit’s sparkling 212 also included 28 boundaries.Ravindra Jadeja (51) helped himself to his 13th half-century before tailender Umesh Yadav (31) smacked five sixes, all off Linde’s bowling, in a 10-ball blitz before falling to the tormented left-arm spinner who returned figures of 4-133.South Africa were jolted immediately in their reply when Mohammed Shami dismissed Dean Elgar for a duck with his second ball and, in the next over, Yadav bounced out Quinton de Kock for four.INDIA 1st inningsMayank Agarwal c Dean Elgar b Kagiso Rabada 10Rohit Sharma c Lungi Ngidi b Kagiso Rabada 212Cheteshwar Pujara lbw Kagiso Rabada 0Virat Kohli lbw Anrich Nortje 12Ajinkya Rahane c Heinrich Klaasen b George Linde 115Ravindra Jadeja c Heinrich Klaasen b George Linde 51Wriddhiman Saha b George Linde 24Ravichandran Ashwin st Heinrich Klaasen b Dane Piedt 14Umesh Yadav c Heinrich Klaasen b George Linde 31Shahbaz Nadeem Not Out 1Mohammed Shami Not Out 10Extras 10b 6lb 1nb 0pen 0w 17Total (116.3 overs) 497 declFall of Wickets : 1-12 Agarwal, 2-16 Pujara, 3-39 Kohli, 4-306 Rahane, 5-370 Sharma, 6-417 Saha, 7-450 Jadeja, 8-464 Ashwin, 9-482 YadavBowling: Kagiso Rabada 23 – 7 – 85 – 3 ( 1nb), Lungi Ngidi 20 – 5 – 83 – 0,Anrich Nortje 24.3 – 5 – 79 – 1, George Linde 31 – 2 – 133 – 4,Dane Piedt 18 – 3 – 101 – 1.SOUTH AFRICA 1st inningsDean Elgar c Wriddhiman Saha b Mohammed Shami 0Quinton de Kock c Wriddhiman Saha b Umesh Yadav 4Zubayr Hamza Not Out 0Faf du Plessis Not Out 1Extras 4b 0lb 0nb 0pen 0w 4Total (5.0 overs) 9-2Fall of Wickets : 1-4 Elgar, 2-8 de KockTo Bat : Bavuma, Klaasen, Linde, Piedt, Rabada, Nortje, NgidiBowling: Mohammed Shami 1 – 1 – 0 – 1,Umesh Yadav 1 – 0 – 4 – 1, Shahbaz Nadeem 2 – 2 – 0 – 0.
Syracuse and Colgate had played 13 times entering Wednesday night. The Orange won each of those matchups while holding the Raiders to less than 40 points five times leading up to their 14th matchup.The teams last squared off in 2011 and it resulted in an 83-32 Orange victory. Wednesday night’s roster, comprising of nine players in the midst of their first season for SU, maintained the status quo.Syracuse (9-0) steamrolled Colgate (4-5), 79-39, in the Carrier Dome, for its largest margin of victory of the 2017-18 season. In its last three games against the Raiders, SU has outscored them 237-97. The Orange led every major statistical category including field goals (31-16), rebounds (47-36), steals (9-7), points in the paint (32-20) and blocks (6-3). SU also set a season-high for 3-pointers (13) and matched the Raiders point-total from behind the arc. The win capped off Syracuse’s best start to a season since 2009, when it won its first 12 games.“We were able to attack their forwards on the baseline and get some open looks early in the game,” Syracuse coach Quentin Hillsman said. “I thought it got us going and got our confidence up. That was the key to the game, we got comfortable.”Colgate led for 16 seconds thanks to its first possession. Summer King won the jump ball, snagged an offensive rebound and swung it to Tegan Graham who then passed to Nia Ahart who drained a 3 from the wing.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSixteen seconds later, freshman forward Digna Strautmane launched a 3 from the top of the key, watched it bounce off the rim twice and in to tie the game. Less than a minute later, Strautmane pushed off a defender and drained an elbow jumper. Just like that, SU had a lead it wouldn’t relinquish.SU led by 17 at the end of the first quarter. Three days earlier, Syracuse had jumped out to an early 13-point lead against Stony Brook in the first quarter before the Seawolves outscored it 23-8 in the second. Against the Raiders, the Orange didn’t let up. It drilled nine 3s in the first 20 minutes of play and went on a 24-6 run of its own.“When we get ahead like that,” sophomore guard Tiana Mangakahia said. “…We just have to keep pushing.”For most games this season, Syracuse’s optimal performance meant having 75 to 80 possessions, playing fast, and shooting the ball well. On Wednesday night, SU had 84 possessions and shot 34.2 percent from deep, its second-highest 3-point percentage.Andy Mendes | Digital Design EditorMost of its 3s were open looks. Instead of driving to the rim, SU passed the ball around the perimeter, drew Colgate’s zone in and flipped passes to the open shooter, much like Stony Brook did to the Orange. With 23 seconds left in the first half, sophomore guard Tiana Mangakahia passed to an open Isis Young who punctuated the half with a 3-pointer and a fist bump.“We were moving the ball and getting open shots,” Hillsman said. “That’s the big thing for us to make open 3s and we were able to make one more pass and make an extra pass and get really good looks at the rim.”Coming out of the halftime break, Syracuse continued an early-season trend: Following up explosive offensive quarters with anemic ones. Against Wisconsin on Nov. 23, SU followed up a 27-point second quarter with a 15-point third. The Orange scored 24 in the first and eight in the next quarter in its most-recent game.The offense cooled after it had extended its lead to 38. The Raiders went on a 9-0 run that resulted in Hillsman burning a timeout. Before Colgate could chip away any further, Syracuse went on a 13-0 run of its own that featured Strautmane converting a layup, Mangakahia nailing a turnaround, off-balance jumper, Gabrielle Cooper hitting a 3 and Jasmine Nwajei scoring six points.Heading into the fourth, Syracuse needed two 3-pointers to set its single-game high. The first came two-and-a-half minutes into the final frame. Strautmane fired a pass to Nwajei who flipped it to Drummond who hit the corner jumper, just like it had done all night. Five minutes later, Drummond notched another three from the same spot.“Any time we can get good looks,” Hillsman said. “We have good shooters and they should be able to make those shots and they did that tonight.”After the teams had cleared the floor, a few Colgate players hung around near the sidelines with their families. Some were clothed in Raider sweaters and jackets and walked to the center court, right near the ‘31’ commemorating Pearl Washington, and posed for a photo. The game had been decided shortly after tip-off and there was nothing left to do but appreciate the environment.

The African continent has been known to produce the world best footballers over the years.This statement was made literal in 1995 when Liberian, George Weah, became the first (and only) person from the continent to win the FIFA Player of the Year and Ballon d’Or.Since Weah dazzled in Europe, only a handful of African players have gone close to reclaiming the world’s top individual footballing prizes.Samuel Eto’o’s third-place finish in the FIFA Player of The Year Awards in 2005 was the closest anyone got until Mo Salah made the top three of both awards last year.He might have missed out on both prizes to Croatian Luka Modric but it was an indication that Africa was on the rise again.This year, two Africans are up for the Best FIFA Men’s Player of the Year and unlike recent years, both stand a real chance of winning it.Who is up for this year’s top men’s prize?Salah (Player of The Year)Mo Salah had a brilliant second season at Liverpool, with many people expecting his form to dip after a stunning first campaign with the Reds.He scored 27 goals and assisted 13 more in 52 matches for Liverpool as the Merseyside club finished won the UEFA Champions League and finished as runners-up in the Premier League.He was also in the Egypt squad that reached the Round of 16 at the African Cup of Nations tournament.Salah scored two times for the Pharoahs but they crashed out of the tournament to South Africa.Mane (Player of the Year)Of the two players from Africa in with a shout at the award, Sadio Mane’s shriek is definitely the loudest,Along with Salah, Mane was one of Liverpool’s star performers last season scoring 26 times and assisting five more.Mane, however, had a better time with his national side, scoring three goals as Senegal reached the final of the African Cup of Nations.Mane might not have become an African champion but his performances over the course of the season have certainly put him in a strong position to become the best in the world.Belmadi (Coach of The Year)43-year-old Djamel Belmadi wasn’t too fancied when he took up the job as Algeria’s national team head coach.Having seen their hugely-talented side fail at every hurdle, not much was expected from the Desert Foxes at this year’s AFCON.However, Belmadi took the team by the scruff of the neck, dragging a complete team effort from his side, who remained unbeaten throughout the tournament to emerge as the Champions of Africa.A year to the day since Belmadi took over and with only one loss from 16 matches, the diminutive tactician will be hoping to cap off his blossoming career with FIFA’s Best Coach Award.
