Abiera said FIC means a child has been immunizedagainst polio, Hepatitis B, and other childhood diseases. Integrated Provincial Health Office-Antique urges parents to have their children immunized with polio vaccine due to the reemergence of the viral disease in the country. PNA “We, however, believe there are still childrenwho were not able to have their full immunization last year and so weencouraged parents to cope with their missed immunization,” Abiera said, addingthat children, who missed their polio immunization, could still have it untilfive years old. He said parents should carry out stricthygiene among their children like hand-washing before and after eating. “We are now strengthening our routinevaccination so that the children when they reach 1-year-old, would become fullyimmunized children (FIC),” he added. He added the target was a projected figurebased on the data provided by the Philippine Statistics Authority. “Our target last year was 16,280 1-year-oldchildren but health workers reported only 9,191 FIC,” Abiera said. SAN JOSE, Antique – The Integrated ProvincialHealth Office (IPHO) in this province urges parents to have their childrenimmunized with polio vaccine due to the reemergence of the viral disease in thecountry.

Last year, a total of 9,191 children aged one,were considered FIC in Antique. “We know that the mode of transmission onpolio is fecal-oral so children have to really practice hand-washing,” addedAbiera.(With a report from PNA/PN)
New Delhi: Minutes after he was picked for Rs 8.4 crore by Kings XI Punjab in the 2019 Indian Premier League Auction, the phone has not stopped ringing for Varun Chakaravarthy, the 27-year-old Tamil Nadu ‘mystery’ spinner who created a sensation. “About 600-700 journalists have called so far,” Chakaravarthy said with a tired yet content voice after he had created a sensation in the auction in Jaipur on Tuesday. The young lad’s journey is unique devoid of all the masala elements of Bollywood or Hollywood. Chakaravarthy’s story is the classic story of all middle-class youth, who struggle to find the right balance between a serious academic career or a sporting career.Chakaravarthy’s story was well-highlighted before the auction started. He did not do well in sports in school, quit the game, studied hard and pursued a career as an architect. Suddenly, one day, he had enough and was prepared to jump back in the game. He dusted his kitbag, got back into the cricketing fray and his journey began. “I was just not happy in architecture. I could not express myself. I decided to give one last shot in cricket. If I did not gain much success, I was prepared to stay in architecture,” Chakaravarthy said in an exclusive chat to News Nation. Unique comebackAt the age of 25, making a cricket comeback is not easy for an individual in India, considering the regimented pathway many youngsters go through via U-16, U-19, U-23 before getting into Ranji Trophy. However, for Chakaravarthy, the IPL has provided opportunities to make rapid strides. After a stellar performance with a TNCA fourth-division club, he was picked in the Tamil Nadu Premier League where he played for the Karaikudi Kaalai franchise. Although success did not come immediately, things still worked out well for him.

In that team, there was a video analyst Hari who spotted me. Next year, I went to the Madurai Panthers team but I did not get to play many games. But this year, it all changed. I got massive support from all the senior players in the side, especially from KB Arun Karthick, Thalaivan Sargunam,” Chakaravarthy said. Read More | IPL 2019 Auction: Unadkat, Chakravarthy and Curran get big bucksChange it did. He was the star for Madurai Panthers and his economy rate of 4.7 gave the franchise their first title. More success followed in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, with 22 wickets in nine games for Tamil Nadu. All this culminated on Auction day which was in Jaipur. When Chakaravarthy’s game was announced, the Chennai lad expressed his state of emotions. ‘Glad to be with Ashwin’“I was at home with my parents and we were glued to the TV,” Chakaravarthy said. As the price increased, the excitement went up. “I was just happy that my talent was recognised,” apt came the answer. Chakaravarthy was picked by Kings XI Punjab and he secured the joint-highest bid by an Indian in the auction, level with Jaydev Unadkat. Hailing from Tamil Nadu, there would have been a temptation to play for the Chennai Super Kings, the three-time IPL champions. However, Chakaravarthy gave a surprising answer.Read More | IPL Auction: Prayas Barman, Prabhsimran Singh – the young millionaires“I am from Chennai. However, I am glad that I am going to Kings XI Punjab as I will be playing with Ravichandran Ashwin. I spoke with Ash and he was very excited. The hard work begins now,” Chakaravarthy said. The immediate aim for Chakaravarthy, though, was brushing up on his Hindi. “Konjam teriyum (I know a little)”, said the 27-year-old on his Hindi and he joked he had to take Ashwin’s help in understanding. When asked how much he knew Hindi, he replied, “Balle Balle”, which is a trademark phrase in Punjab.Chakaravarthy’s comeback is an inspiration for people who are caught in the crossroads of a career. The Tamil Nadu youngster signs off by saying, “Give it your best shot and decide whether you can do the best in what you choose. There is no specific time and place to do it,” Chakaravarthy said. After getting Rs 8.4 crore, these words are indeed significant. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.
WEST Indies produced a watertight bowling performance to strangle England and claim victory by 21 runs in the one-off Twenty20 international at Durham on Saturday.Chasing 177 for victory, the hosts looked well on course after Alex Hales blasted 43 from just 17 balls to light up the powerplay overs on a bitterly cold night at Chester-le-Street.But Sunil Narine’s 2-15 turned the screw as only Jos Buttler – who passed 1,000 T20I runs in making 30 – and Jonny Bairstow (27) offered any hope before the home side fell well short, all out for 155.In truth, England ought to have been chasing in excess of 200 after a destructive opening stand from Evin Lewis (51) and Chris Gayle – whose first six in his 40 from 21 was his 100th maximum in T20Is.Liam Plunkett (3-27) and Adil Rashid (3-25) dragged the hosts back into contention, but Eoin Morgan’s side were left to rue failures with the bat as Narine turned the screw and ensured the Windies’ white-ball stars did what their Test colleagues could not, after a 2-1 defeat in the five-day arena.Gayle’s milestone moment arrived from his seventh delivery, dispatching David Willey over midwicket, and he followed that up by crashing the next ball over the bowler’s head, narrowly missing a media box window.The best of his four maximums went like a tracer bullet over cover off Chris Jordan, before Lewis got in on the act by taking 16 from Tom Curran’s first three balls of the sixth over.Gayle’s fun came to an end after the powerplay, though, as he ambled lazily for a single and was run out smartly by a combination of Jason Roy and Plunkett.Plunkett continued to check the Windies’ progress by removing Lewis, Marlon Samuels and Kieron Pollard in his final two overs, while his Yorkshire team-mate Rashid followed suit in claiming three scalps as the tourists somewhat limped through to 176-9 from the remainder of their allocation.England’s reply got off to the worst possible start as Roy fell to the first ball, and Rovman Powell’s drop of Hales four deliveries later proved costly, the opener thumping eight fours and a six to get the hosts ahead of the rate.But he, Joe Root and Morgan fell in successive overs to leave England 68-4 – a wobble steadied by Buttler and Bairstow, their 50 stand brought up in glorious fashion as the latter drove Pollard over wide long-off for six.Buttler holed out immediately afterwards, though, and when Bairstow perished it left England’s tail too much to do as the Windies were able to warm themselves with a well-earned victory.(Omnisport).

The Club World Cup will go ahead despite Moroccan authorities trying to have the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, due to be staged in the country in January and February, postponed because of the Ebola epidemic. European giants Real Madrid will face either Mexican side Cruz Azul or Asian champions Western Sydney Wanderers for a place in the final of the Club World Cup, which kicks off in Morocco on Dec. 10. The PFA said the club wants to pay players 10 percent of prize money, fees and bonuses from the Club World Cup, valued at least $1 million (810,000 euros). But the players believe they are due 50 percent. Western Sydney Wanderers and Algeria’s Setif, the recently crowned African champions, make up the numbers. Cruz Azul won the Concacaf Champions League title while the Sydney club beat Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal for the Asian title. The December 10-20 Club World Cup tournament will be played at Rabat and Marrakech and features seven clubs: Real, Auckland City of New Zealand who are champions of Oceania, Cruz Azul, Moghreb Athletic of Tetouan from the host nation as well as Argentina’s San Lorenzo, the Copa Libertadores winners. The footballers argue that under their collective bargaining agreement, a club must pay players at least half of all prize money, fees and bonuses after winning the AFC Champions League (ACL). “It’d be special to win it, but it won’t be easy.” The other team to go straight into the semi-finals are top Argentine club San Lorenzo, of whom Pope Francis is a fervent supporter. “The group is fully aware of the importance of lifting this title and we are keen to keep winning. It’s a dream for me to compete in it because of how hard it is to qualify and I’ll try to enjoy it as much as possible. And it will be the star-studded Cristiano Ronaldo-fired Real side that shall surely attract most attention in their bid to emulate last year’s winners Bayern Munich and continue European domination of the tournament. They will play the winners of the first quarter-final between Algerian outfit Setif and the winners of a preliminary play-off pitching hosts Moghreb Athletic Tetouan against tournament regulars Auckland. Real right-back Dani Carvajal admitted that adding a new title to their honours in the shape of the Club World Cup was his team’s driving goal. “To win the Club World Cup is a massive motivation and would be a great end to the season,” he said in a Twitter live chat organised by his club. The Asian champions left for the north African country with no agreement between the club and its players over how much they will be paid for taking part. “The players’ decision to get on the plane was a show of good faith,” a Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) spokesman told AFP. Since its launch in 2000, Corinthians of Brazil have won twice, the last time in 2012, but aside from that there has been a roll call of European giants’ victories since 2007, including AC Milan, Inter Milan, Manchester United and Barcelona, twice, to go along with Bayern. There has, however, been drama for antipodean rivals Sydney, who have travelled to Morocco despite fears they could boycott the tournament over a pay dispute.
Rafael Nadal says he will sue a former member of the French government over claims he missed eight months in 2012 due to a “positive doping test”.Roselyne Bachelot, 69, was Minister for Health and Sport between 2007 to 2010 under former French president Nicolas Sarkozy.”A minister of France should be serious,” said Nadal, who reached the third round of the Indian Wells Masters with a 6-2 3-6 6-4 win over Gilles Muller on Sunday evening.”This time is the time to go against her. We are going to sue her”This is going to be the last one, because I’m going to sue her. I am tired about these things. I let it go a few times in the past. Not any more.”Bachelot made the claim after Nadal missed eight months of action in late 2012 and early 2013 with a knee injury. He was forced to sit out the London Olympics, the 2012 US Open and the 2013 Australian Open because of a stomach virus. “When you see a tennis player stopping for months, it’s because there’s been a positive control,” said Bachelot.The 14-times Grand Slam winner also plans to sue anybody who makes similar allegations in the future.Nadal referred to his personal situation after Maria Sharapova last week tested positive for using a newly banned drug Meldonium.”I am a completely clean guy,” said Nadal. “I have never had the temptation of doing something wrong.”– Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.

11Elk Valley Mens SCBL Standings Â League Over-all 37.300614.300 010.000216.111 82.900154.842 WL by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€” Can the South Haven Boy and Girl Cardinals sweep the South-Central Border League regular season championship tonight?Historians may need to help the Sumner Newscow with this, but when was the last time a boys and a girls team from the same school swept the regular season in the SCBL in the same season?South Haven has a chance to do it tonight when Caldwell comes to town.One could argue that the Cardinals have already accomplished the feat. Even if both lost, they would fall into a first-place tie with the other teams.If both teams win tonight then they will be champions outright.The SCBL girls basketball race is a convoluted one that if Caldwell wins tonight it would throw the league into a five-way tie for first place. Not a two-way tie, not a three-way-tie, not a four-way tie, but a five-way tie!South Haven is currently at 8-1. A win would give the Cardinals the league title outright at 9-1. However, if South Haven loses then it falls to 8-2.Argonia is at 8-2, Sedan is at 8-2, Cedar Vale-Dexter is at 8-2, Caldwell would be at 8-2.Try figuring out the tiebreaker with that one.On the boys side, South Haven is undefeated, and can wrap things up with a win against Caldwell. If it loses to the Bluejays, the Cardinals would fall into a two-way tie with Central-Burden at 9-1. However, since South Haven beat Central it would probably be deemed the champions, but will probably settle as “co-champs.” Kansas State fans does this sound familiar?So tonight is a big night for South Haven, and for rival Caldwell wanting to topple off the Cardinals.The standings are as follows: WL 46.400812.400 2Argonia Udall 3Oxford 7Caldwell 19.100118.053 10Flinthills 6Udall 19.100315.167 Â 8CVDX Over-all 82.800164.800 73.700128.600 10Argonia 9Flinthills Elk Valley Sedan Close Forgot password?
