Spain declared a state of emergency in the country for 15 days on March 14 over the coronavirus outbreak. The country recently announced that it would extend the status for another 15 days.As a consequence, Spain imposed a lockdown on the entire country as well as limiting the movement of citizens across the entire territory.”Since Monday, the Spanish government has extended the lockdown status. The government only allows people working in essential sectors to go to work,” Hermono said.He said the Indonesian Embassy in Madrid had also limited its services, and only offered services for urgent matters.”To protect Indonesian citizens in Spain, we’re continuously communicating with representatives from various areas to monitor their condition and remind them to stay alert. We also monitor those who are infected with COVID-19 and offer them help if necessary,” he said.As of Wednesday, Spain had recorded 95,923 cases of the coronavirus and 8,464 fatalities linked to the disease, making it the country with the highest COVID-19 death toll after Italy, which has recorded 12,428 deaths from the disease, according to John Hopkins University. (nal)Topics : Indonesian Ambassador to Spain Hermono has said that nine Indonesian nationals living in the country — one of the hardest-hit by the coronavirus in Europe — have tested positive for COVID-19.”Two of them are currently being treated in hospitals, six are exercising self-quarantine and one has fully recovered, Hermono said on Wednesday.There are currently around 1,468 Indonesian nationals living in Spain, 400 of whom lived in Madrid, he said.”Most of them work here or have married locals,” he said as quoted by Antara.

He went on: “If you have a player and he has one or two faults, you can work on them and eradicate them. But this guy has too many, I think. “(City manager) Roberto Mancini has treated him like a father would at times, and he was always wishing and hoping that this guy was going to do it. But to be quite honest, he has done it on very few occasions.” He added: “I think the players would tell the manager as well, ‘We’ve had enough of this guy, it is time you got shot of him.’ You can only put up with so much.” Former Manchester City chairman and player Francis Lee believes the club were right to sell controversial striker Mario Balotelli. The Italy international’s move to AC Milan was completed on transfer deadline day earlier this week, bringing to an end his colourful, headline-filled two-and-a-half year spell as a City player. Asked if he felt the Blues had done the correct thing in cashing in on Balotelli, Lee told BBC Radio Five Live’s Sportsweek: “I think it is the right move. He is a talented player with a lot of ability. But the biggest disappointment for me was that he played at the expense of his team-mates. He would stop the game and do a few tricks, or do this, that and the other. You could never rely on him.” Press Association
Kohli, Rahane put India in driver’s seat(ESPNCricinfo)- An unbroken partnership of 167 between Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane, the highest of the series so far, put India in control at the end of Indore’s first day of Test cricket. Kohli ended the day on 103, his 13th Test hundred. It was by no means his most enthralling innings, but it was utterly dominant in that he gave New Zealand no inch on a largely attritional day. Rahane, less certain, gutsed it out to stay unbeaten on 79 and India 267 for 3.Having come together at 100 for 3, with the match in the balance, Kohli and Rahane gradually asserted India’s dominance in front of an enthusiastic crowd numbering over 18,000. Having started watchfully – they added 48 in 20 overs before tea.They grew increasingly fluent, scoring 119 in the final session in 34 overs, at exactly three-and-a-half runs per over.All five of New Zealand’s bowlers bowled with disciplined and had well-thought-out plans, but there was little help for them on a pitch that wasn’t the greatest to look at, with cracks all over its surface, but played more or less true on the first day, if a little slow. The off-spinner,Jeetan Patel,was their best bowler but his figures – 1 for 65 off 24 overs – told a different story: he frequently beat the batsmen in the air, but they usually managed to adjust since the ball didn’t turn all that much or all that quickly once it landed.Kohli came into the match with scores of 44, 3, 4, 9, 18, 9 and 45 in his last seven Test innings, but the last of them, in Kolkata, had been a superb display of footwork and judgement on a pitch with uneven bounce. It suggested he wasn’t really out of form.Again, in Indore, he avoided the extravagant shots that had got him out in his first three innings of the series, and accumulated steadily, blending into the background for most part. He didn’t offer any clear chances, and the two times he edged the ball, it eluded the fielders: on 39, drift caused him to edge Patel between keeper and slip; on 69, he reached out at a wide-ish length ball from James Neesham, and edged through a vacant first slip.

He’s one of the people who came out Thursday night at Besser Museum to discuss if the community would be interested in establishing Alpena’s first historical society.The master mind behind forming this new group is Cindy Ranshaw.She said in an email to WBKB that she wants the new historical society to “capture those moments, memories, and memoirs and preserve them in one central location, that future generations be able to go to one place to search for those little documents that might fill a missing piece of the puzzle to their family story despite how large or small.”Even though Alpena has libraries and a museum to document and preserve artifacts in Northeast Michigan, attendees unanimously agreed it’s not enough.“My big hope is that by being over here, I can kind of get more involved with that. And historic society kinds of fits those needs,” said La Bare. “I really do think it’s something. We’ve been all talking here about it.”Ranshaw said she believes what they’re trying to establish is a public necessity.

Hearts of Oak have revealed they will now head hunt for a substantive coach after failing to reach an agreement with Swedish coach Tom Strand.The Phobians, after receiving over 10 applications, reportedly settled on the Medeama trainer but his demands were too high for the club. This forced Hearts to name an assistant coach in Yaw Preko – leaving the head coach role still vacant.Opare Addo, head of the team’s communications department says they will not advertise the coaching job but will go ahead and appoint a coach.“From this period we are head hunting, we want a head coach that can transfer whatever knowledge he has in the game to our players,” he told Joy Sports.“We are also looking for a young and energetic coach who will be able to do a lot for our squad, Hearts must be transformed and we must play an attractive football in our local league.“We must be able to get back into the Champions League so we need so we need a coach that has a lot of experience.” –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

“He keeps me focused all the time,” said Clippers center Ivica Zubac, whose locker is positioned next to Beverley’s at the end of the horseshoe nearest the door.“Every time I try in the locker room, when I say something outside of basketball, he will be like, ‘C’mon, Zu, we got to focus, we got a game.’ He’s always on me and I love it. A guy that is always locked in, he don’t care about anything else in the pregame and that stuff, when you got a guy like that, you got to return the energy, can’t be messing around and doing other stuff, you got to be locked in.”Off the court and then on it, too.“Last couple games, I’ve been successful staying out of foul trouble,” said Beverley, who fouled out against Houston on Dec. 19, but otherwise has spread three fouls over four games entering Saturday’s game against the Utah Jazz (7:30 p.m., Fox Sports Prime Ticket).“Let’s hope that carries on into tomorrow.” With seconds to go in the Clippers’ 111-106 victory, James worked himself into position to attempt a game-tying 3-pointer – but Beverley, draped all over the 6-9 forward, jarred loose the ball, poking it out of bounds on a play where it was determined, after review, to have touched James last. That ruling effectively sealed the win for the Clippers, who got the ball back with a 109-106 lead and 3.6 seconds remaining.Two days later after practice in Playa Vista, Beverley wasn’t interested in weighing in on any of the debate surrounding his play, although he continued his season-long discussion about ongoing attempts to harness his passion.“Sometimes, it’s how the whistle goes,” Beverley said. “I think trying to control and harness that emotion that I have and don’t let it bleed out on referees and other players. I think that’s the biggest thing I’ve been trying to work on.”“He’s learning,” Rivers said. “Early on, he was committing those bad fouls at (mid)court and stuff and now he’s not wasting them, he’s kind of conserving them – and Pat with fouls at the end of the game, that’s gonna be tough. … We want him to stay aggressive, just gotta be smart about it. Can’t have the dumb reaches when you don’t need to. But he’s still aggressive.”Working with the ultra-aggressive Beverley is as intense as one might imagine because, no, he isn’t shy about sharing his winning tenacity with his teammates. Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error PLAYA VISTA — When he watched video of Wednesday’s Christmas Day game against the Lakers, it looked a lot like it did in real time, Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.“I thought we could have played better, bottom line,” he said. “We won the game (but) I thought we won it more from mental perseverance than anything else. We did not play great and I guess the silver lining is: but we won the game.”The Clippers’ mental fortitude starts and stops with Patrick Beverley, their 6-foot-1 pest who was assessed a technical foul in the second quarter Wednesday but no personal fouls otherwise. He again outrebounded Lakers’ big man Anthony Davis – nine to six, on this occasion – and made LeBron James pay for trying to take a charge early in the game, a defensive effort that resulted in a called block and a collision the Lakers’ star said aggravated his sore groin.And then, in the end, Beverley did his part to turn the formerly quaint out-of-bounds call into a topic of debate about video replay and the spirit of basketball’s basic rules.

Lowry was shoved by a minority partner of the Golden State Warriors’ ownership group, seated courtside during the NBA Finals, and that person was banned from team business for a year by the league.There were more. Those were just the highest-profile ones. The NBA would not release exact numbers – and the totals are believed to be very low – but Pickett said the ejections of fans in the courtside area still more than doubled last season.Westbrook declined comment for this story, saying through a Rockets official that he was not comfortable discussing the matter. But the players’ union insists that the problem is getting bigger and bigger.“Last season, I began to sense even at the games I was attending that there was a certain, I’ll call it absence of civility, that permeated the games,” said Michele Roberts, the executive director of the National Basketball Players Association. “I was seeing more bad-mouthing opposing teams that were not simply ‘you suck,’ which every one of us will tolerate, but really nasty, nasty comments being directed at players.” The Celtics banned a fan for two years for directing racist chants at Cousins. Westbrook was involved in a pair of incidents in Utah that came to light last season; was offended by a fan during the 2018 playoffs by a fan calling him “boy” before a playoff game, and then last season was involved in a back-and-forth shouting match with another fan.The Jazz banned both fans for life, and Westbrook was fined $25,000 by the NBA for threatening the fan involved in last season’s incident.“I try very hard not to have my default answer be, ‘It’s racism.’ I really do because I don’t think that necessarily advances the argument,” Roberts said. “If it’s undoubtedly that, then I’m happy to say it.”It’s not always racism, either – Roberts also said she’s received complaints from many white players about being the subject of nastiness from fans.Amira Davis is an assistant professor at Penn State specializing in 20th Century American History with an emphasis on race, gender, sports and politics. She believes fans feel more emboldened now to say whatever they like, without fear of repercussions.“There have been plenty of sober fans yelling slurs and attacking players in the worst way,” Davis said. “I think it’s a mix of all of those things and when looking at predominantly white spaces like Utah and a largely black labor force, it ratchets it up a little bit more and makes it a lot more intense. Particularly in this political climate in which it’s very easy to project onto high-profile black athletes and pathologies and misconceptions about the black community.”Fan behavior is not just a concern in the NBA. It is being noted everywhere.Racist chants and taunts are a major issue in European soccer, including at a Euro 2020 qualifier between Bulgaria and England last week. Green Bay and Philadelphia fans fought in the stands at Lambeau Field last month. The Atlanta Braves had fans stop doing their “tomahawk chop” during the playoffs earlier this month. During the AL Championship Series between Houston and New York, Astros manager A.J. Hinch told umpires that he felt the behavior of fans at Yankee Stadium had crossed the line and that it “was becoming a dangerous situation.”“There’s no place for that,” Hinch said, referencing matters like debris being thrown from the stands toward players and taunts directed toward some of the Astros. “Both teams will agree. And it’s really hard to stop fans from doing that. But it’s also very dangerous.”And the athletes are not always just victims, either.Golfer Bio Kim was suspended by the Korean PGA for three years for making an obscene gesture at the crowd during the final round of a tournament that he won, angry because of noise from a cellphone camera.In the NBA, the league is expanding the area in arenas most closely monitored when it comes to player-fan interaction. The top-priority area used to be just those seated with feet on the court itself or maybe the first couple rows of courtside seats; now, that area goes several rows deep in every building, plus the areas where teams and referees enter and exit the court.The fan code of conduct, a standard announcement at every NBA arena for years, is now being shown and promoted more times in each game. Season-ticket holders have been put on notice by teams that they may lose their seats even if they give their tickets to someone who goes over the line and harasses players or officials too vociferously.Fans believed to have been involved in incidents will be removed from seats while officials investigate; many times, when a security guard asks those in a certain area what just happened, no one would volunteer information with the suspected heckler present.“I think players are definitely vulnerable,” Golden State’s Draymond Green said after the Lowry incident. “Any time you’re in a situation where you can do no right, like in defending yourself, you’re vulnerable.” About a dozen NBA players gathered for a teleconference with officials in the league office this summer, making their case about what they believe is one of the biggest problems in the game.Fan behavior, they said, is getting worse.The numbers show they’re right, and if that isn’t troubling enough race only adds to the complexity of the issue: Most NBA players are black, and it seems like most of those in the closest seats are white. Not every incident is racially motivated, though some clearly are.After high-profile incidents involving Russell Westbrook, DeMarcus Cousins, Kyle Lowry and others last season – including ones involving racist taunts – zero tolerance for abusive or hateful behavior is now to become the NBA’s policy going forward. The league is changing and toughening its code of conduct for fans, especially putting those in closest proximity to the players and the court on alert that anything over the line will lead to ejections and possibly more.
