Phase 2 is Finally Coming to Palm Beach County, But Will It “Work?”

first_imgThe day that Palm Beach County residents, business owners and visitors have been waiting for is almost here…or is it?Although local officials received Gov. Ron DeSantis’ approval on Thursday afternoon to move to phase 2 of the reopening plan next Tuesday, the plan will take quite a while to go into full effect.That’s because county commissioners developed and submitted a staggered phase 2 plan, due to concerns of triggering a spike or another outbreak in coronavirus cases if more businesses and services were allowed to resume operations at the same time.With that in mind, here’s the tentative schedule they developed, and which DeSantis subsequently approved:On Tuesday, Sept. 8, retail stores, as well as museums, libraries, personal services that are not already open may do so, and gyms and fitness centers may finally operate at full capacity.Restaurants will also be allowed to have full outdoor capacity while continuing indoor service. That includes being allowed to eat at the bar.Movie theaters can reopen at 50 percent of their total capacity, while playhouses can operate at 33 percentBowling alleys may open half of their lanes, with four players maximum allowed per lane. Meanwhile, escape rooms will also be allowed to reopen, but cannot host mixed player games. Instead they would only operate for private parties at different timesIn addition, venues such as trampoline centers and other indoor entertainment activities can occur at 50 percent of their capacityEven though local officials had wanted to delay the opening of school campuses, County Mayor Dave Kerner says DeSantis is requesting a Sept. 14 reopening of brick-and-mortar learning, but is also considering a request from Kerner to put that off by a week.This morning, Mayor Kerner met with Fl Governor Ron DeSantis & delivered letter requesting to move PBC to Phase 2.PBC sent letter & County’s Incremental Phase 2 Re-opening Plan to the Governor late Wednesday requesting PBC be moved to Phase 2. https://t.co/rgtcVE5YmF pic.twitter.com/BIxY59LdKP— Palm Beach County (@pbcgov) September 3, 2020The next part of phase 2 is set to start Monday, Oct. 19.It will include the reopening of auditoriums, bingo parlors, comedy clubs, and concert houses at half capacity.The third and final portion of phase could come two weeks after that, on Monday. Nov. 2.At that point, movie theaters may expand to 75 percent capacity and playhouses to 66 capacity.Additionally, bowling alleys will be allowed to use all of their lanes.Escape rooms, however, would continue to operate with the restrictions of not having mixed player games and only hosting private events.On the other hand, indoor entertainment venues will be able to use 75 percent of their capacity, with groups of no more than 15 people.“Today, we’re moving Palm Beach into Phase Two, and they’ve done very, very well,” DeSantis said in making the announcement.He went on to say, That’s been really strong momentum and we believe it’s gonna continue.”It’s safe to say that state and local officials are certainly optimistic about the plan.Still, time will tell whether going into phase 2 incrementally will help the local economy bounce back, or if it will do more harm if many businesses still cannot operate normally for months and customers aren’t there.last_img read more

German giants Borussia Dortmund to sign Bellingham City

first_imgDORTMUND: German giants Borussia Dortmund on Monday announced the signing of 17-year-old mid-fielder Jude Bellingham from Birmingham City in a ‘long-term’ deal.Dortmund reportedly paid 25 million pounds plus add ons to acquire the services of the talented mid-fielder and he is set to earn in excess of 50,000 pounds per week. Premier League clubs Manchester United and Chelsea were also said to be after his signature but Jadon Sancho’s rise at Dortmund seemingly forced Bellingham to follow suit. Bellingham had reportedly even visited the two team’s training grounds Carrington and Cobham respectively.

Fredrick Lawson loses out to Kevin Bizier

first_imgFredrick Lawson (24-0, 20 KOs) was upset by Kevin Bizier (24-2, 16 KOs) in an IBF welterweight title eliminator. Lawson’s biggest problem besides not matching Bizier for power or activity was his tendency to lean over his front foot.This subsequently always kept Lawson in punching range whenever he tried to get off. After both fighters went toe-to-toe in the opening round, Lawson’s back was often toward the ropes as Bizier bossed the action around the ring.Lawson was later hurt and dropped by a right hand in round 5 and was never able to turn the momentum around. Lawson’s trainer Abel Sanchez stopped the fight at the conclusion of round 10 because he believed his fighter’s jaw was broken.The announced official time of the stoppage was 2:59, though common sense would dictate 3 full minutes. Bizier now becomes the mandatory challenger for IBF champion Kell Brook. Brook bested the only man to beat Bizier, Jo Jo Dan, with relative ease earlier this year.In the opening bout of the night, Walter Castillo (26-3, 19 KOs) was very lucky to get a draw against Keita Obara (15-1, 14 KOs) in an IBF junior welterweight eliminator.Newly crowned IBF champion Eduard Troyanovsky probably wasn’t sweating a fight with either guy, but Obara arguably pitched a shutout from round 3 onward. Obara showed exceptional footwork and outpunched Castillo with better speed and combinations. Castillo exposed flaws in Obara’s defense but simply did not land enough or more devastatingly. The official scorecards read 115-113 for Obara and 114-114 (x2).last_img read more

Clippers’ Doc Rivers: Avoiding injuries could be as simple as playing more basketball

first_imgThe Clippers’ list of injured players is long and varied. Blake Griffin has a concussion. Austin Rivers has an ankle impingement. Patrick Beverley underwent season-ending knee surgery. Danilo Gallinari has a gluteus maximus injury. Milos Teodosic has a plantar fascia injury.They’re not alone in missing key players because of injuries.The Golden State Warriors, the Clippers’ opponent Wednesday in Oakland, have taken to listing most of their top players on their injured list. Steph Curry sat out 11 games because of a sprained ankle and Kevin Durant has missed the past three games because of a calf strain.Chris Paul of the Houston Rockets has been sidelined for extended periods because of knee injuries and adductor injuries. James Harden, Paul’s teammate, is out because of a hamstring injury, missing last week’s showdown with the Warriors. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The San Antonio Spurs have been without Kawhi Leonard for most of the season because of a quadriceps injury and more recently because of a partially torn shoulder muscle. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said earlier this season he’s never seen a quad injury like Leonard’s.“Never, never,” Popovich said.Except that the Spurs’ Tony Parker had a similar quad injury that sidelined him.The list goes on and on around the NBA.“There’s a million theories,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said when asked earlier this week why there seem to be more injuries to key players around the league this season than ever before. “It’s a great question. I wish I had an answer. I don’t have an answer.”center_img Doc Rivers, who likes to joke that Doc is just his nickname and that he’s not an actual medical doctor, then offered one theory.“I wish all of them played more basketball,” he said. “Clearly, that’s not the whole reason, but I just think guys played basketball years ago. Just a lot of basketball. It’s not lost on me that Jamal Crawford is always healthy because he plays basketball.”NBA players are stronger, bigger and faster than when Rivers played in the league with the Atlanta Hawks, Clippers, New York Knicks and Spurs from 1983-96. He said he admires the dedication to their workout routines, but he wonders if they weren’t overdoing it.“Guys now do all the other stuff, which I think is important, but the game they play is basketball,” he said. “When the season starts, they haven’t played. They’ve been doing all the other stuff. Then the season starts and we ask them to play 40 minutes of basketball and their bodies aren’t used to it. That’s my second grade theory.”The Clippers’ injuries have nothing in common. It’s not as if they’ve suffered a string of sprained ankles. For example, Griffin’s concussion happened when the Warriors’ JaVale McGee accidentally struck him in the head during a drive to the basket.It could have happened at any time in any similar situation.Rivers acknowledged he’s just guessing about the reasons for all the injuries, but he does know one thing: There seem to be a lot more of them this season than in the past and it’s made a big impact around the league, and so far no team has been hurt more by them than the Clippers.“Sometimes it’s just freak injuries,” he said. “This year, there’s a lot of them. I don’t know the answer. I don’t have any clues there. These guys have muscles I didn’t even know about, literally, so I couldn’t hurt any of them because I didn’t have any of them.“I don’t know. There are a lot of injuries in our league right now.”last_img read more

Lakers’ Lonzo Ball continues to sit with ankle sprain

first_imgUnder ordinary circumstances, it might seem a silly degree of concern for an ankle sprain. But Ball is no ordinary rookie. On the night of the injury, Walton stressed the need to keep Ball on the floor to ensure the Lakers could continue to grow around him.Without Ball, the Lakers have continued to put in more elements of their offense, putting pressure on Ball to learn more from the sidelines.“We’re still working on just getting familiar with the different reads, with the different options,” Walton said. “We’re putting in an offense that has play calls to it right now but eventually we’d like it to just be reads for the players.”Ball’s injury, minor though it initially seemed, has been a setback for the Lakers, disrupting their preseason strategy and delaying their timeline.There is not, however, much of anything that can be done about that.“He played in the first couple games,” Walton said. “When he’s healthy, the training staff will give us the clear and he’ll get ready to go.”DEFENSE IMPROVING?After allowing an average of 116 points over the first three games of the preseason, and earning a tongue-lashing from Walton following a 128-107 loss to Denver on Oct. 4, the Lakers seem to have figured out a couple of things defensively.After rewatching the 105-99 loss against Utah, Walton said, “We found a lot of good half-court defensive stuff we did again. Which obviously we’re thrilled about.”Of course, there were things Walton did not care for. Transition defense, once again, was suspect. They fouled too much at the rim.“Those were the kind of focal points in the film room on the defensive end,” Walton said. “But on the whole we were very happy with how we defended last night.”After the Lakers did not show early signs of improvement, some began to fear they would once again be among the league’s worst defensive teams. Those concerns have been temporarily put to rest.“I am 100 percent sure that we are going to be better than last year,” veteran Corey Brewer said. “We are not going to be 30th, come on now. That’s horrible. You can see that we have shown signs that we can really do it and I think we will do it.”Brewer, one of the Lakers’ best wing defenders, went so far as to say, “we should be a top-five offensive team and a top-10 defensive team.” EL SEGUNDO — Sitting on the sidelines in shower shoes and a crisp white Big Baller Brand hoodie, Lonzo Ball watched as another day of Lakers basketball rolled on without him.The prized rookie continues to sit out with a sprained ankle that was initially labeled as mild, but has proved to be anything but.Enlisted as the new face of a team whose offensive philosophy was constructed around him, Ball has been limited to light drills since suffering the injury on Oct. 2.The highly anticipated start to Ball’s Lakers career has sputtered out of the gates. He has missed three consecutive preseason games and is listed as questionable for Friday’s exhibition finale against the Clippers.

The Lakers would like to see him complete a practice before playing in a game, but that could be either Thursday or in an extended shootaround Friday.On Wednesday, Walton acknowledged the injury has been trickier than he initially expected.“I didn’t think he would miss the whole preseason,” Walton said, “but you try not to really think like that. They’re injuries, you can’t and you don’t want to rush players back.”last_img read more
