French police handed out over 4,000 fines Wednesday to people found violating an order to stay at home, on the first full day of a lockdown aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus in the country.”Since this morning, we have begun procedures and 4,095 people were booked [for violating the rules],” Interior Minister Christophe Castaner told TF1 television. “The fine was 35 euros [US$38] yesterday, and now from today is 135 euros and it can go up to 375 euros. It should be a factor that dissuades people,” he added. “People are not going to stay cooped up, especially those who are not going to work, for the next fortnight. But please avoid doing it in a group,” Castaner said.”This is discipline and a civic mentality. If needed we will be rigorous and will sanction people,” he warned.Asked to comment on a group of three French shown in a TF1 report doing meditation and yoga on a beach, he said this was okay but they should not sit so close together.”Most of the French have been responsible and have changed their behavior. But there are a minority behaving in a dangerous way,” he added.France is scrambling to contain the outbreak that has killed over 260 and infected more than 9,100 in the country. On Wednesday, French defense minister Florence Parly said the army would hand over five million surgical masks from its own stockpiles to the health ministry. The move comes after complaints of severe shortages for hospital and medical staff at the frontline of the fight against coronavirus. From midday on Tuesday, people in France have been confined to their homes apart from essential trips, for which they must sign a document stating where they are going.”Our aim to is to protect the French. The best way to protect lives is to stay at home,” he said.Asked about the fact the many French across the country were still taking walks or jogging, Castaner said this was permitted so long as people went outside alone.Announcing the lockdown on Monday, President Emmanuel Macron said exercise was permitted, in contrast to the even tighter measures in Italy and Spain.

Sterling earlier posed with a Real top as he praised the “fantastic” Spanish giants, days after SunSport revealed Los Blancos were plotting a summer swoop even before City’s two-year ban from European competitions.

But it’s a fantastic club.”City visit Real in the Champions League last 16 on Wednesday, with the Etihad return on March 17.And while Sterling has won two Premier League crowns with City, neither he nor they has ever won Europe’s top club tournament.In contrast, Real have triumphed a record 13 times, including three straight successes in Zidane’s first stint as manager.Read Also: Ighalo tipped to start for Man Utd in 3-5-2 line up vs WatfordSterling said of the French legend: “To win the Champions League so many times especially in a row as well is very difficult.“I don’t think that’s luck, it’s definitely a formula.

The 51-year-old was stunned by Sunday’s capitulation at St James’ Park as his run of four positive results against the Black Cats came to a spectacular end. However, he is urging his players to use the humbling 3-0 defeat to fuel them for their final five games of the season, and then into another battle for the title to be the North East’s top dogs. Pardew told the Chronicle: “Next year, we have to prove that we are a bigger and better club. That’s in terms of our Premier League position by finishing well above them. That’s what we are going to try to do next year. But first, we have got to make sure we play well in the last five games with good, solid performances.” Alan Pardew has set Newcastle the task of recovering derby pride after tasting defeat by Sunderland for the first time. Press Association Pardew’s hopes for revenge presuppose the continued presence of the Tyne-Wear rivals in next season’s Barclays Premier League, something which is currently far from certain. Despite Sunday’s famous victory, Sunderland remain only three points clear of the drop zone with Newcastle just two points better off, and both still have a significant amount of work to do. The Magpies head for West Brom on Saturday, where a repeat of last season’s 3-1 victory would be more than welcome in the circumstances. However, the Baggies, who have taken just a single point from their last three games, will be keen to address that situation in front of their own fans. Pardew will at least have a week to work with his players having seen many of them head off on international duty last month, and then have to balance the demands of their Europa League quarter-final double-header against Benfica with league games against Manchester City, Fulham and Sunderland. That could prove particularly important for men such as Mathieu Debuchy, Cheick Tiote and Hatem Ben Arfa, who have missed out in recent weeks through injury. Indeed Ben Arfa’s appearance as a substitute at the weekend was his second inside four days after just one in four months. In addition, Pardew will hope to be able to bring a new energy to the legs of Yohan Cabaye, Moussa Sissoko and Papiss Cisse, whose weariness has become increasingly apparent. Pardew said: “We certainly can do a week’s work with Hatem and Debuchy, who had his first game, and Cheick. We will do more work with him. We will give a rest to some of the other guys.”
Press Association The Newmarket trainer admitted he got the tactics wrong by not making the most of supplemented pacemaker Dick Doughtywylie as Arabian Queen stunned the Knavesmire crowd by getting the better of the Derby and Eclipse winner by a neck. Gosden will now prepare his star three-year-old for the Group One over a mile and a quarter at Leopardstown on September 12. John Gosden is keen to run Golden Horn in the Qipco Irish Champion Stakes ahead of the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe granted suitable conditions following his shock defeat at York on Wednesday. “He’s absolutely fine. He ate up last night,” the trainer told Racing UK. “He got set alight a little bit early and a bump from his pacemaker didn’t help. “If we could ride the race again we’d probably do it differently, but I wish to take nothing from the winner. “She was gutsy, classy, handled the ground and stuck her neck out and made use of every ounce of that 5lb allowance. “The pacemaker set a steady pace and we should probably have sat behind that, but now it’s too late. “We’ll go to the Irish Champion with him and let’s hope it doesn’t rain too much. Leopardstown is a lovely track and it drains very well. “I don’t want to leave a long gap top the Arc, having missed the King George – and I’m glad I didn’t run him there over a mile and a half on that ground. “Having missed that the key thing is to have continuity between his races and the Irish Champion is where we go.”
On Nov. 5, members of SC Auto Society were invited to a car showing at Pagani Newport Beach by a USC alumnus. Photo courtesy of Steven Chang.Starting this semester, a new club on campus is helping students explore their interest in all things automobile. SC Auto Society, which was officially chartered in Fall 2017, creates an environment on campus for all car enthusiasts, welcoming undergraduate students, graduate students, alumni and even faculty members to become involved in and knowledgeable about cars. Its members organize drives, go to car meets, attend car shows and visit auto museums, said William Squires, the club’s vice president.“The SC Auto Society is a essentially a club of people who love cars,” Squires said. “The car enthusiast community is one of the most welcoming communities. You don’t even have to have a car to be in the club. There are some expensive cars in the club and some inexpensive cars, but no one is treated any differently by what car you have.” President Steven Chang started SC Auto Society because he believed that there were a lot of car enthusiasts who had no place to go, especially after a previous club, Auto Club of SC, ended three years ago. In addition, Chang thought the club would be a good way to keep in contact with his friends and expand his network. “It has allowed me to meet a lot of alumni or conduct events with alumni,” Chang said. “The whole philosophy or mission statement of this club is to bring together people who wouldn’t normally hang out. We’re able to bring together international students, kids from the East Coast, both boys and girls and those all over California.” Becaues SC Auto Society is a new club this semester, the organization’s executive board is primarily focusing on building a solid foundation. To expand the club’s reach to the Trojan community, the board developed a logo, created special car stickers and ordered apparel. So far, most of the club’s events consist of going to car shows and meets that car dealerships or other schools host, Chang said. The point is to park your cars, have them on display and talk to others about what kind of cars they’re interested in and what features they added to their cars, and to get to know them on a personal level, according to Squires.Car shows, which typically occur on Saturday or Sunday mornings, allow people to bring their own cars and to meet new people, Chang added. “At these car shows, people from all over the area will come and bring whatever they have,” Chang said. “Some of them have themes, so a theme might be exotic super cars with Lamborghinis or Ferraris. Typically, they’ll have a sponsor, so it’s a way for a company to get their name out there or for a club like us to interface with the community.”So far, the largest event the SC Auto Club’s board has organized was a car show held on Nov. 5 at Pagani Newport Beach. Originally, the show was meant to be a small gathering for only USC students so the club could get some exposure through pictures and social media, according to Chang. However, after getting more involved and reaching out, several other schools — including Chapman University, UCLA, UC Riverside, UC Irvine, Loyola Marymount University and Palos Verdes High School — showed up. “I was sort of in the process of putting together a league of all of these car clubs in California,” Chang said. “We’re friends with about 15 schools now and so it was nice to meet all of these people for the first time after talking to them for months, so it was my favorite car show.” Squires hopes SC Auto Society will continue to be an inclusive and prominent club in future years. He also aspires to help the club host its own show along Trousdale Parkway, with dealerships and possibly famous car collectors like Jay Leno and David Lee.“I would really like to have a car show in the spring semester on the USC campus,” Chang said. “Not only would we be able to get our name out there, but it would give students a chance to show their cars, meet more people and hopefully get more alumni involved. The end goal is to also provide a way for students to meet alumni not just through panels or for networking and school-related events, but through hobbies.”

N95 masks are still reserved for health care providers.Individuals must wear cloth face masks properly to avoid contaminating their hands or face. Before putting on a mask and after removing a mask, individuals should clean their hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water, change masks when moist, and wash after use. Remember to avoid touching the mask while in use. Worn masks may be contaminated with infectious agents.People should continue washing hands frequently with soap and water, avoid touching their faces, avoid gatherings of more than 5 people, and continue staying at least 6 feet away from one another.“I’m exercising my authority as Health Officer for Thurston County to require that people wear cloth face coverings in particular circumstances,” said Thurston County Health Officer, Dr. Diana Yu. “With our approval to begin Phase 2 of Safe Start Recovery, it’s more important than ever that people be cautious, responsible, and considerate of others.

Instead, the directive should be used to educate, encourage, and persuade individuals to wear face coverings.Yu said, “I strongly urge all people in Thurston County to support the health and well-being of the community by complying with this directive without delay.”The Face Covering Directive is available in its entirety at: https://www.thurstoncountywa.gov/phss/phssdocuments/HOFaceCovering-directive-order%20FINAL.pdf
