Bacolod City appeals quarantine status

first_imgEssential sectors such as agriculture, forestry, fisheries, food business, hospitals and clinics are allowed to operate in areas under any quarantine measure since these are services gravely needed by the public. Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the appeal will be tackled in the scheduled IATF-EID meeting before President Rodrigo Duterte announces the latest community quarantine status in various parts of the country tonight. National Task Force (NTF) COVID-19 chief implementer Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr. said during a Malacañang briefing on Monday that the shift was due to the observed spike in new cases as well as in severe and critical cases. On Monday, Iloilo City’s Mayor Jerry Treñas said he appealed to the IATF-EID the city’s supposed shift to GCQ from MGCQ starting July 16. “Nagkaroon po ng pulong ang ating IATF ng dalawang sunod-sunod na araw noong Thursday at Friday (last week) at napagkasunduan po doon na may mga areas po na mag-i-escalate [ang protocols],” Galvez said. Public transport and inter-island travel will return in areas under GCQ but with strict safe distancing. Manufacturing services are fully allowed to operate in GCQ areas same with film, music, and TV production, repair and vulcanizing shops./PN “Nakikita po natin na tumataas ang kaso ng ating mga severe at critical cases, at the same time ‘yung mga new cases tumataas din,” he added. It was not clear, however, what appeal the city government of Bacolod City made. The city has been under modified general community quarantine (MGCQ) since May 16. Residents in areas under the GCQ, except vulnerable persons, are allowed to go out while gatherings will also be allowed for a maximum of 10 persons only. MANILA – Bacolod City has appealed to the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) its community quarantine status from July 16 onwards.last_img read more

What’s next? NFL sparks new questions with anthem policy

first_imgFILE – In this Oct. 29, 2017, file photo, Houston Texans players kneel and stand during the singing of the national anthem before an NFL football game against the Seattle Seahawks, in Seattle. NFL owners have approved a new policy aimed at addressing the firestorm over national anthem protests, permitting players to stay in the locker room during the “The Star-Spangled Banner” but requiring them to stand if they come to the field. The decision was announced Wednesday, May 23, 2018, by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell during the league’s spring meeting in Atlanta. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson, File)ATLANTA — With its popularity threatened and critics stretching all the way to the White House, the NFL just wanted to get past the debate over taking a knee during the national anthem.Put the focus back on football.ADVERTISEMENT Instead, the league seemed to muddle the divisive issue even more with a new policy that stirred up defenders of free speech, prompted a couple of owners to quickly backtrack and raised all sorts of potential questions heading into next season.After a tumultuous season, NFL owners wrapped up their spring meeting in Atlanta by announcing Wednesday that players would be required to stand for the national anthem if they’re on the field before a game, but gave them the option of staying in the locker room if they wanted to carry on the Colin Kaepernick-inspired campaign against police brutality and social injustice.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownCommissioner Roger Goodell called it a compromise that respected the wishes of everyone, from those who consider “The Star-Spangled Banner” a sacred part of the American experience to those who believe the right to protest during the anthem is also in the best tradition of a free but imperfect society.Yet, it was clear to everyone that the owners wanted to quell a firestorm by moving any further protests away from the public eye — especially if it lured back disgruntled fans while appeasing President Donald Trump and his vocal base of support.

LATEST STORIES View comments “They’ve pretty much got the teams,” Norman said. “They make those decisions. We’ve just got to go through with it, I guess.”A handful of outspoken players vowed to carry on the cause, including Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins.“I will not let it silence me or stop me from fighting,” he said. “This has never been about taking a knee, raising a fist or anyone’s patriotism, but doing what we can to effect real change for real people.”While Goodell said the new policy was unanimously approved by the owners, CEO Jed York of the 49ers — Kaepernick’s former team — contradicted the commissioner by saying he abstained. York said he didn’t feel comfortable making a decision without directly involving the players’ union.New York Jets owner Christopher Johnson took a similar approach. He said his team will pay any fines doled out by the league, without passing on punishment to the players.“I will support our players wherever we land as a team,” Johnson said. “Our focus is not on imposing any club rules, fines or restrictions.”So, what happens next?The NFL just wants the issue to go away.Instead, it raised a whole new batch of questions.

This is not patriotism. Don’t get it confused. These owners don’t love America more than the players demonstrating and taking real action to improve it.”Trump addressed the issue during a political campaign, saying the NFL should fire any players who kneel during the anthem . He had no immediate comment on the new policy, but Vice President Mike Pence called it “a win for the fans, a win for (the president), and a win for America.”The NFL didn’t consult the players’ union on its new policy, though Goodell stressed that the league had talked to countless players over the past year and was committed both financially and philosophically to the fight for social justice .ADVERTISEMENT “We want people to be respectful of the national anthem. We want people to stand,” Goodell said. “We’ve been very sensitive on making sure that we give players choices, but we do believe that moment is an important moment and one that we are going to focus on.”In an attempt to quell a potential challenge from the NFL Players Association, the league said any violations of the new rules would result in fines against teams — not individual players.But the league also gave teams the option of developing their own workplace rules, which many players interpreted as a backhanded way of subjecting them to fines — or worse — should they carry on with the protests.“If the team says ‘this is what we’re doing,’ and ownership (does too), you either deal with it or you’re probably going to get cut,” Pittsburgh Steelers guard Ramon Foster said.The head of the NFLPA, DeMaurice Smith , angrily denounced the NFL’s decision and called it a blow against America’s most basic rights — freedom of speech.Since the new policy is a change in the terms and conditions of employment that was not collectively bargained, any attempts to fine individual players would surely be opposed by the union.“History has taught us that both patriotism and protest are like water; if the force is strong enough it cannot be suppressed,” Smith wrote on Twitter. “The CEOs of the NFL created a rule that people who hate autocracies should reject.”But many players are mindful that Kaepernick, who began the protest movement in 2016 during his final year at quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, didn’t play at all last season and still hasn’t been picked up by another team . They’re also aware of the plight faced by safety Eric Reid, one of Kaepernick’s former teammates and another protest leader, who is also out of work with the upcoming season just a few months away.Both have filed collusion grievances against the NFL .Washington defensive back Josh Norman said the owners have a right to decide what the players can and cannot do, a sentiment shared by many of his colleagues around the league.last_img read more
