Saudi Arabia, which has reported the highest number of infections in the Arab world, is scrambling to limit the spread of coronavirus at home. On Sunday, the health ministry said the number of deaths from COVID-19 had risen to 139, confirmed infections to 17,522 while 2,357 people have recovered.Last month, Saudi Arabia suspended the year-round “umrah” pilgrimage over fears of the coronavirus pandemic spreading in Islam’s holiest cities.Authorities are yet to announce whether they will proceed with this year’s hajj, scheduled for the end of July, but they have urged Muslims to temporarily defer preparations for the annual pilgrimage.Last year, some 2.5 million faithful travelled to Saudi Arabia from across the world to participate in the hajj, which Muslims are obliged to perform at least once during their lifetime.The Arab world’s biggest economy has also closed cinemas, malls and restaurants and halted flights as it attempts to contain the virus.King Salman has warned of a “more difficult” fight ahead against the virus, as the kingdom faces the economic impact of virus-led shutdowns and crashing oil prices. The deal, which has a total value of 995 million riyals, also includes “the establishment of six large regional laboratories in a number of areas in the kingdom, including a mobile laboratory with a production capacity of 10,000 tests daily”, it added.Earlier the government decided to relax a nationwide curfew between 9am and 5pm, with malls and retailers allowed to reopen until May 13, according to the official Saudi Press Agency.But a round-the-clock lockdown will be maintained in some areas including Mecca, where the highest number of infections have been recorded in recent days despite the city being sealed off.Many countries around the Middle East and North Africa have the easing of lockdown restrictions to coincide the holy fasting month of Ramadan which began on Friday. Topics : Saudi Arabia announced Sunday a $265 million deal with a Chinese firm to ramp up coronavirus testing as the kingdom eased a 24-hour curfew, except in hotspots including Islam’s holy city of Mecca.The agreement with China’s Beijing Genome Institute (BGI) will provide for nine million COVID-19 tests, the government said in a statement.It said in line with the agreement “500 experts, specialists, and technicians” would come from China to conduct the tests.
England A squad player Joe Dean set a tournament record to retain the Lee Westwood Trophy at Rotherham Golf Cup last night. The 20-year-old Lindrick star led from the start in the 72-hole world-ranking event and never looked like relinquishing his grasp on the silverware he won last year. His record score of 266 was one shot lower than previous best set by Gary Wolstenholme in 2008 which was some achievement considering the blustery conditions on a tough course. His 12-shot margin of victory over England A squad teammates Robert Burlison of Oxley Park and Meltham’s Jamie Bower summed up Dean’s play over the week. Never over par, his four rounds of 67, 64, 65 and 70 included a low that was only 2 off the course record. The 20 year old said: “ I played steadily all week. The driver was working well and the putts dropped.” He started the final round yesterday afternoon 11 shots ahead at 14 under par but a bogey at the first tested his nerve. He steadied the ship with four pars and the four birdies that followed finally put the result beyond any doubt. Despite scoring two double bogies in the round he recorded five consecutive 3s on the back nine. “I was probably a bit too relaxed at the start of the final round which is why I started with a bogey. But I stuck to my game and continued to be aggressive because it had worked all week.” Dean a +2 handicapper at the start of the tournament, has set himself the ambition of reaching the 2015 Walker Cup squad before considering turning professional. “I will definitely remain amateur next year but will be looking for a quick start and hope to get a sniff at the Walker Cup but it will not be the all and end all if I don’t make it.” The Lee Westwood Trophy is one of England’s top amateur events held annually at Rotherham Golf Club. This year was the 10th event and was competed by a full field of 141 players from all over the UK. It also attracted players from Abu Dhabi, Hong Hong and two young men Chen Chen and Sen Cao who had travelled from China with their coach David Watson for their first experience of UK golf.

Facebook118Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Home Instead Senior CareLeslie DemichThe Olympia area is the home to a variety of healers; whether they be primary care practitioners, massage therapists, acupuncturists or physical therapists. One little known method of therapy and healing is the practice of Jin Shin Jyutsu and our local practitioner and instructor, Leslie Demich, is right at our fingertips.“Any approach to healing (whether western or eastern) is likely to have a certain level of effectiveness as long as it keeps your well-being paramount,” says Leslie, accredited JSJ practitioner and instructor. “Each approach has its place in the healing process.”What is Jin Shin Jyutsu?Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient Japanese art that employs simple touch to stimulate 26 points on each side of the body. When stimulated in a certain order, these points (we call them Safety Energy Locks) work together to open any of the thousands of highly defined energy pathways in the body.Prior to becoming a JSJ practitioner, Leslie, was the owner of The Demich Group, a public relations consulting firm with clients across the country, for over 30 years; and her career was definitely lucrative. “My experience with Jin Shin Jyutsu and its benefits are a result my husbands battle with chronic illness and the associated pain with chronic illness; and it’s what drove me to make the leap from the PR grind to opening my own practice,” Demich says, recalling what prompted her curiosity into the field.“Acupuncture helped, but he had a hard time integrating it into his life. In desperation, we turned to a Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner whom I’d known and liked as a friend for years in spite of what she did for a living. Until that moment, it hadn’t occurred to me to ask her for help because I didn’t think that weird Jin Shin Jyutsu stuff was real. I thought it was just some froo-froo new-age requiring a healthy dose of gullibility to make it work. If it worked,” she mused.As it turned out, her husband was sleeping better, moving better and enjoy life more than he was, due to chronic pain.The philosophy and practice of Jin Shin Jyutsu sets it apart from other modalities in a number of ways:An original painting by Leslie DemichJin Shin Jyutsu embraces and beautifully complements western medicine and all other modalities. Jin Shin Jyutsu will support and help the body harmonize with any approach.Jin Shin Jyutsu honors the modesty of each individual. Clients remain fully clothed, lying face up on a massage table throughout their treatment.Jin Shin Jyutsu employs no needles or tissue manipulation, just gentle touch. As a result, most clients find Jin Shin Jyutsu to be profoundly relaxing.Because Jin Shin Jyutsu employs only gentle touch, clients are able to do it on themselves over time. Each client learns supportive self-help routines so they do not have to rely on their practitioner forever.Leslie Demich is a hosting an exclusive educational seminar for the public, at no cost, hosted by Home Instead Senior Care. Leslie will teach participants how to apply this art immediately, helping yourself and loved ones. Handouts will be provided so you can try it at home, at work, on the go, or even as you fall as sleep at night.This program designed for anyone who is an unpaid caregiver or support member caring for an elderly person be it a parent, other relative or friend. This program is scheduled on Thursday, June 18, 2015, from 10:00-11:00 a.m. at Home Instead Senior Care located at 1217 Cooper Point Road SW, Suite 8, Olympia, WA 98502. Space is limited and registration is required. Call 360.570.0049 to register by June 16. Ask for Kelly Cavenah.About Leslie DemichLeslie Demich is an accredited Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner and self-help instructor.

Powered by Firework India’s top order rose to the occasion after taking advantage of the dew conditions which prevailed at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack. Fifties from each of the Indian top-order batsmen set the tone for the chase which was finished off by bright cameos by Ravindra Jadeja and Shardul Thakur. With this win, India continued their dominance over the Windies in the subcontinent. Advertisement Indian skipper Virat Kohli elected to bowl considering the inevitable dew at the venue. The team also handed Navdeep Saini his ODI debut in place of the injured Deepak Chahar.Advertisement The Indian bowling attack kept the visitors under check in the first powerplay by keeping the run rate under check. Ravindra Jadeja drew first blood while Shami made his first entry into the wickets column soon after.Navdeep Saini’s moment was not far away as he breached the third wicket partnership and proceeded with a yorker of his own to dismiss the well-set batsmen.Advertisement The turning period in the innings was arguably the death overs where the pair of Nicholas Pooran and Kieron Pollard added 120 runs in the final 10 overs which included 61 off the last 4 to set India a target of 316 to win the series.The hosts started the run chase on an ideal note as Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul brought up their second consecutive hundred run stand. Sharma was the first to depart with 63 to his name while KL Rahul returned back to the pavilion after scoring 77.Virat Kohli was the lone man standing as the middle order members, Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant only managed single-digit scores. The skipper found an able ally in Ravindra Jadeja and converted his start into a fifty.While it seemed like the chase master would navigate the side to yet another successful chase unbeaten, Keemo Paul had other plans as he got the prized wicket with 3 more overs left.An unexpected explosive cameo from Shardul Thakur and Ravindra Jadeja’s finesse helped India cross the line and take the series as well. Virat Kohli was adjudged as the man of the match while Rohit Sharma was proclaimed as the man of the series.Read Also:Unprecedented Growth: Dale Steyn ranks the Indian pace attack as the best in test cricket at the momentIndian cricketers Radha Yadav, Poonam Yadav and Deepti Sharma all retain top 10 spot in ICC T20 rankings Advertisement
