STATE News:Restaurants may provide outdoor or patio services where available beginning WednesdaySANTA FE – Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham announced this afternoon that the state’s emergency public health order will be amended to permit limited outdoor dine-in services for most of the state beginning Wednesday, May 27.Dine-in services inside restaurants and bars remain temporarily prohibited. New Mexico is on target for a June 1 reopening of those services under a limited capacity per fire code occupancy restrictions – however, New Mexico health officials continue to monitor the rate of transmission in the state’s southwestern public health region, which if unchecked could preclude further reopenings in that region. The amended public health order does not apply to the northwestern public health region.Under the amended public health order, which is attached and will be effective Wednesday, May 27, restaurants may offer dine-in service in outdoor seating areas at up to 50 percent of their outdoor area fire code occupancy. The following stipulations apply: No dine-in service may be provided in indoor seating areas.Outdoor dine-in service may only be provided to patrons who are seated. Tables must be placed with at least six feet of distance between one another. No more than six patrons may be seated at any single table. No bar or counter seating is permitted. Bars – defined as food and beverage service establishments that derived more than 50 percent of their revenue in the prior calendar year from the sale of alcoholic beverages – are not included in this provision and may not operate outdoor or patio services at present. Bars may continue to operate for take-out and delivery if permitted under their applicable licenses.“Our priority throughout this public health crisis has been the safety and health and well-being of New Mexicans, and this modification of the emergency public health order aligns with that mandate while providing an opportunity for restaurants to begin preparing for a wider reopening next week,” Gov. Lujan Grisham said. “We continue to see sustained, consistent progress in our fight against this virus, which is a credit to the New Mexicans who have amended their behavior to keep themselves, their families and their communities safe. I greatly look forward to being able to continue to ease the restrictions imposed on us by this heinous virus – provided that we continue on the right track and New Mexicans take every necessary precaution, whether in an individual capacity or as a business-owner or employee.”“The New Mexico Restaurant Association is happy with the Governor’s decision to allow a soft opening, of outdoor dining, for restaurants on May 27,” said Carol Wight, the association’s chief executive. “We believe this will provide restaurants the opportunity to ease back into the swing of things while taking the time to properly train staff and implement COVID-19 safe procedures effectively, before fully opening to the public on June 1.“At this time we ask our industry partners in Doña Ana County to seriously consider refraining from participation in this soft opening,” Wight added. “The rate of transmission is considerably higher in this area and in order for everyone to be able to safely reopen soon, the NMRA would like restaurants in this area to forgo the May 27 date and work hard to slow the spread for the June 1 reopening of our industry.”COVID-safe practices for restaurants are available here and will be adhered to under any broader reopening that could take place early next week upon the expiration of the current emergency public health order.The emergency public health order mandates compliance with COVID-Safe Practices for Restaurants, which have been updated with an adjustment related to contact tracing. The requirement is as follows:“To support contract tracing, offer all customers who visit the establishment with the opportunity to record their name and phone number or email address, along with the date and time of their visit, and retain such records for no less than four weeks from the date of collection.”All COVID-Safe Practices can be found in “All Together New Mexico: COVID-Safe Practices for Individuals and Employers”, which can be accessed and downloaded at newmexico.gov and cv.nmhelath.org at the link provided here. (The document includes COVID-Safe Practices for salons, spas, and tattoo parlors, although those are not yet permissible, in order to allow these establishments to prepare for what practices will be required upon a later limited re-opening.)The amended public health order – which otherwise remains the same, meaning other close-contact facilities and outdoor recreation facilities must remain closed – will not apply to the northwestern public health region, encompassing the counties of Cibola, McKinley and San Juan. That public health region remains under the May 5, 2020, public health order but is on track to move ahead into broader reopenings beginning June 1.The public health order dated May 15, 2020, can be found here. The amended public health order is attached. It will be executed Wednesday, May 27.

At press time, the Philippines was stuck in sixth place with 24 gold, 30 silver and 59 bronze medals behind Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, and Indonesia.If the Filipinos cannot add more gold medals, their haul will be less than the 29 the Philippines won in the 2015 Singapore SEA Games – and much less than the predicted 50.Dines Dumaan, a native of Roxas City, Capiz province, on Tuesday captured a gold medal in men’s tanding pencak silat 45-50kg event, beating Firman of Indonesia 4-1.Rhezie Canama Aragon, meanwhile, failed to deliver a gold medal after losing to Marsha Halindak of Indonesia 9-4 in women’s taekwondo -53kg on Monday night.With the scores tied 3-all at the opening, Halindak delivered body shots on Aragon in the second and third rounds to create a gap. The latter tried to cut the deficit but failed to break the Indonesian’s defense.“Sa laban, palagay ko po naman ay patas lang kami. Kaya lang naunahan ako at malakas din yung depensa niya. Babawi na lang po ako sa susunod kong laban,” said Aragon, who was playing at the SEA Games for the first time.Geylord Coveta also settled for silver after failing to sustain his strong start in men’s windsurfing RS One. Natthaphong Phonoppharat of Thailand took home the gold.Ryan Jakiri bagged a bronze medal in 63.5kg muay thai. Cambodian opponent Khun Dima knocked him down in the second round.Also taking home bronze medals were Francis Agojo in taekwondo, Robert Garcia in squash men’s singles, Jemyca Aribando in women’s squash, and Princesslyn Enopia in pencak silat tanding./PN[/av_textblock][/av_one_full]
Anthony Joshua admits it is time for him to “step up” in his career as he prepares to face Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium.Joshua is preparing to defend his IBF world heavyweight title against Klitschko (64-4 KO53) in front of 90,000 fans on April 29, with the vacant WBA strap also on the line.The unbeaten Brit has blown away every opponent put before him and has never been taken beyond the seventh round so far in his career, but faces arguably his toughest test against the two-time world champion.“When we’ve been training, we’ve always been training for fights like this. Even when I was fighting people who were not as talented or experienced as Klitschko, we were always training as if I was fighting better opponents,” Joshua told Sky Sports News HQ.“Now, I’m here, let’s get it on. Everyone has to step up in their career and I am just doing mine now, whether it was against Klitschko or any of the other champions.“It doesn’t matter if there are 90,000 people, 9,000 people or 900 people, as long as I win that’s the main thing and it is history making. Three and a bit years as a pro and I am making history, so I am happy about that side of things.”Meanwhile, Klitschko believes Anthony Joshua needs “big muscles” to make himself confident and does not want any excuses when he topples the IBF champion at Wembley.Joshua’s physical power has brought him 18 knockouts in his perfect professional career, but Klitschko compared him to a ‘CrossFit champion’ during a stinging analysis of the 27-year-old British fighter.Klitschko said: “AJ has a lot of energy, he’s young, he wants to be explosive, he has these big muscles that bring him confidence and he just wants to demolish people right in front of him. That’s what it is, it gives him a lot of confidence, but did you hear about boxing being a sweet science?“Every person would have got these big muscles. It gives you confidence and you really can smash if you hit the heavy bag, or the person in front of you. Boxing is sweet science. The vicious boxers were conquered.“I have a lot of respect for Anthony and what he is doing, his commitment, his physical ability. He can box, he can lift weights, he can be strong, he can train.“He can be a CrossFit champion actually, a CrossFit world champion. I think he has great capability of it. CrossFit became really popular and there are a lot of boxers doing it.But CrossFit is not boxing.”
His quotes have been the main subject of TVI24’s Mais Transferências show this evening, as their journalists continue to bring updates on the midfielder’s possible transfer to Manchester United.Unlike the other editions, when pundits had their own information about the saga, the show today was more about their opinions on what’s happening to the Sporting star.Nuno Dias says the talks with Manchester United are ‘frozen’ for now, but he doesn’t know if they are ‘completely stopped’.This is what TVI24 have been reporting for some days now, with them being the most pessimistic on the potential transfer, after having early confidence.Embed from Getty ImagesSporting were knocked out of the Taca da Liga last night, and Bruno Fernandes was visibly angry. The Lions will hardly have a chance to fight for anything this season, and Dias says that’s something that makes his value drop.That’s why the Lisbon side may need to have second thoughts about the demands they’ve been making, and according to his opinion, they should consider talking to other clubs and accepting different payment methods.Journalist Rui Pedro Braz has praised Jorge Mendes for going public and explaining the whole situation, and says he believes it’s more likely that Bruno Fernandes will only leave in the summer.That’s Mais Transferências getting more pessimistic about this deal every single day, even though they were pretty positive about the move when they first broke the news about Frederico Varandas’ trip to England.This one, for them, is dead unless one of the two clubs involved, or perhaps both, changes their position.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoDating.comThe Most Handsome Men In Hong Kong On This Dating SiteDating.comUndoSmart Tech TrendOver 50?
