Axne blames Trump administration for ‘gaps’ in fighting coronavirus

first_imgDES MOINES — Iowa Congresswoman Cindy Axne says she’ll support a multi-billion-dollar spending package to respond to the coronavirus outbreak.Axne, a Democrat from West Des Moines, is among the members of Congress who signed a letter to House and Senate leaders, urging passage of the bill. She expressed hope the legislation can be finalized before the end of the week.“They’re working on a vaccine for it,” Axne says, “but that’s sometime down the road. We hope to pass a funding package to help fight the greater impact of coronavirus getting deeper into our country.”Axne says one of her biggest concerns is that any vaccine developed will be affordable to the public.“We’re absolutely looking to ensure that the funding doesn’t get pulled from other accounts, but is strictly used for this, that the vaccines are affordable and available to every single person that needs it,” she says. “We are looking at hopefully giving things like interest-free loans being made available to small businesses impacted by the outbreak.”Under the plan, Axne says state and local governments would be reimbursed for costs incurred, while also assisting the federal response. She expressed concern over the funding bill’s delay and questioned whether the federal government is as prepared as it should be to handle coronavrius, especially with spending cuts made by the Trump Administration.“We have a lot of positions within the CDC that were left unfilled, unfortunately,” she says. “We certainly have gaps within the system that this administration decided not to fill in positions, and not to support as much with the resources that were needed. I have faith that we have incredibly smart scientists in this country and we’re going to be able to get this figured out.”To avoid spreading the virus, Axne says to avoid close contact with people who are sick, stay home when you are sick, avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth as much as possible, and wash your hands.last_img read more

Sevilla recounts its coronavirus crisis to the Los Angeles Times

first_imgThe worst moments of the coronavirus pandemic have come to the United States later than in Spain, but the North American country is already feeling it in its meat with all virulence. The Los Angeles Times, a prestigious Californian newspaper, wanted to push the crisis in the elite Spanish sport and for this they turned to Seville. Monchi and Captain Jesús Navas describe it this way for the other side of the pond, almost the World:“We have to be responsible, for the memory of the thousands of Spaniards and people around the world who are dying because of this virus”, states the Nerve sports director. “You have to see how the pandemic evolves. Logically, I want to be optimistic. But nothing makes sense if we don’t first defeat the coronavirus. First there is health and then everything else will come.” “The best thing, at least for me, in the life of a footballer is to live day to day in the locker room. Especially if it is a healthy locker room, with a good group like the one we have this year. They talk to each other and motivate each other. I try to see the bright side of things, even in this difficult situation. So I think our group can come back much stronger. Everything will pass and it will be fine. And when we get out of it we will give much more value than before to the things and moments of our lives, “adds Monchi.“Monchi made it clear to us that this is not a vacation”, Navas says. “He wants us to do our best and not lose our shape. It is strange to work alone. But every day I do a demanding exercise routine. Our nutritionist is also in constant contact with us.”The captain of Sevilla is clear: “We are professionals and we have to demonstrate it now more than ever. I take this as a challenge for personal improvement. As a captain I want to be an example for my teammates. This situation is a challenge for any elite athlete. In adverse moments is when people bring out the best in themselves. And as professional footballers we have to do just that. “last_img read more

Simpson says confidence among Boyz now sky high

first_imgManager of Jamaica’s national men’s senior team, Roy Simpson, says the valuable experience gained in the Copa America and Scotiabank CONCACAF Gold Cup tournaments, has lifted the confidence of the players ahead of the upcoming World Cup qualifications.Jamaica will engage Nicaragua in a two-way tie for a berth in the CONCACAF group stage. The Reggae Boyz will host the first leg on September 4 and play away four days later. The winners on aggregate will advance to the next stage.”We came second in the Gold Cup, but that was the end result of work we had put in. We started preparing from the Caribbean Cup in December 2014. We decided that we had to win the Caribbean Cup. And we did that,” Simpson, who has been manager of the senior team since 2008 told The Gleaner a few days after losing 3-1 to Mexico in the Gold Cup final in the USA.Simpson said Jamaica were at a disadvantage in the final stages of the 2014 World Cup qualifiers as while their main opponents were involved in the Gold Cup the Reggae Boyz were idle.”Coach (Winfried) Sch‰fer came on at that time in the World Cup qualifiers … from then he decided that if he was with the team he planned to be at the Gold Cup in 2015,” Simpson disclosed.”We were aware that the top-four teams from the Caribbean Cup competition would be at the Gold Cup but we wanted to win the Caribbean Cup. We were already invited to the Copa America, so we thought that it would make our invitation more authentic if we won the Caribbean Cup.buffer experience”When we looked at the Copa America, we decided that we could not win the tournament. It was not impossible, but we knew we could not win. So, we decided on how best we can use that experience to buffer us going into the Gold Cup.”With better luck, we could have got better results and from that backdrop we knew we could have been very competitive in the Gold Cup,” he recounted. At the Copa America, Jamaica were beaten 1-0 on three occasions – by Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay.”I remember at the CONCACAF workshop – after the draw for the Gold Cup zones – coach Sch‰fer said to me that he thought we could win the Gold Cup. Then we felt even more confident when coach Sch‰fer, Captain Burrell (Jamaica Football Federation president) and myself went to meet the overseas players in the United Kingdom. What was really encouraging was the sort of commitment that the players exhibited when we spoke to them about the plans for the senior team.”They saw it as their responsibility to come and represent Jamaica and give their all,” Simpson recalled.”If you go to the Gold Cup final and are second, then with three and a half spots available in the World Cup from CONCACAF the expectation is that we should be there in Russia in 2018. There are more eyes on us but what we need to understand is that the work gets harder at each step.”Now with the back to back performances in the three tournaments (Caribbean Cup, Copa and Gold Cup) people will take us seriously again.”I want the people to continue marking us hard because the harder they mark us the better for the team,” Simpson concluded.last_img read more
