He’s a serial winner. Wherever he goes he wins trophies, that’s a fact. “Whatever team he puts out [against Boro] will be a team he fully expects to win and it’s obvious the FA Cup is something he has an eye on. “The top four is harder now but when [Mourinho] took over we were 12 points behind [Chelsea] and we got it to three. We maybe took one step back but we have shown we can close the gap.” Spurs’ “step back” came in their last Premier League outing when they suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat to table-topping Liverpool. Mourinho’s side had their chances in that game, with Rose looking to take positives from it heading into an important run of fixtures across multiple competitions. The England international left-back added: “It felt like one of the better performances we had over the Christmas period. Everyone’s gutted that we weren’t clinical enough to take one of our chances. “What hurts the most was that it was just a case of a lack of concentration from a throw-in. We managed to sort of control their world-class front three.” Read Also:Mourinho: I’m Not Jealous Of Man City, Liverpool While Tottenham did a decent job of containing Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, the latter did net the only goal of the game to keep Spurs eighth in the table and nine points adrift of the top four. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Jose Mourinho wins trophies “wherever he goes”, says Danny Rose, with the Portuguese expected to have Tottenham as serious challengers for the FA Cup in 2020. Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho Spurs stumbled at the first hurdle in that competition this season, with a third-round replay due to be taken in with Middlesbrough on Tuesday. Edging past Championship opposition in north London would keep them in the hunt for major silverware, with Southampton waiting at the next stage. Mourinho is expected to prioritise domestic cup glory, with the former Chelsea and Manchester United boss having fared admirably in knockout tournaments before. His CV is littered with major silverware and he was appointed as successor to Mauricio Pochettino with the intention of delivering long-awaited success for Spurs. Rose believes the 56-year-old will end a barren run, but says Tottenham’s mindset has not changed despite former manager Pochettino having previously been quoted as saying that the Premier League title and Champions League are the only “real trophies”. “I’m not sure that Mauricio did [prioritise the League and Champions League],” Rose said. “Whoever we played, Mauricio wanted to win. Whatever team he put out, he fully believed that team could win.
A longtime South Florida doctor is now fighting for his own life, after catching the very disease he was treating in others.Dr. Vladimir Laroche has practiced internal medicine for nearly 40 years. Recently, he was hospitalized at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center with the novel coronavirus.His brother, Paul Laroche, says Dr. Laroche had quickly adjusted to his new role as front-line medical staff during the pandemic when he suddenly began to feel symptoms. The virus is attacking his lungs, which has led to him being intubated and depending on a ventilator in the intensive care unit.“He almost died yesterday and at this point, his last saving chance is to get the plasma transfusion,” Paul Laroche adds, referring to convalescent serum therapy, which is being considered as a potential COVID-19 treatment that depends on a supply of blood plasma from survivors of the disease who developed antibodies capable of neutralizing the virus.Hospitals and blood banks across the country are now collecting, isolating, and processing the blood plasma. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued emergency authorization for the convalescent serum therapy last month.“We started looking for plasma and plasma donors because the demand is so high and the supply is so short,” says Paul Laroche.Photo courtesy: FoundCare/FacebookDr. Laroche’s colleagues at FoundCare Health Center are assisting the family with the search. Dr. Laroche reportedly needs a cup of the serum. For every donor, two to four patients can be treated.Since there are no proven therapies or vaccines to date for COVID-19, some doctors believe the passive-antibody therapy, which has been used before to treat a similar disease, can control the coronavirus for the time being.OneBlood, which is a blood donation center that serves South Florida, recently announced that Miami Mayor Francis Suarez was the first COVID-19 survivor in Florida to become a convalescent plasma donor.A OneBlood spokeswoman says prospective donors must be eligible to give blood, have a verified positive diagnosis, remain symptom-free for at least 14 days and have a confirmed negative test.
Facebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Saint Martin’s University Saint Martin’s University will begin offering a new Certificate in Software Systems at its Lacey campus in late October, building on the success of its Microsoft Software and Systems Academy, a program currently offered in partnership with the Microsoft Corp. at the University’s Extension Campus at Joint Base Lewis-McChord’s Stone Education Center. The new certificate program is primarily designed to serve active-duty military and veterans but also will be open to others in the community, says David Olwell, Ph.D., dean of the University’s Hal and Inge Marcus School of Engineering. Final program approval was recently received from the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, making it fully eligible for financial aid through the Veterans Administration.Dean of the University’s Extended Learning Division Radana Dvorak, who has been instrumental in the program’s success at JBLM, said, “I am absolutely delighted that the NWCCU approved the certificate program and grateful to all my colleagues for working so hard to get this off the ground. It’s great news for our wider community population that includes so many veterans, service members and others who stand to benefit from this opportunity.” Olwell says the one-semester certificate course will be offered in the University’s new Panowicz Foundry for Innovation and the E. L. Wiegand Laboratories. Microsoft has equipped the classroom with cutting-edge computers and software. For veterans who have earned their certification, Microsoft also provides a comprehensive program to support employment readiness, including individual mentoring.Since it was launched in 2013, the certificate program at JBLM has proved highly successful, with 98 percent of its 141 graduates now employed in the industry. “They are successfully placed in excellent-paying, high-tech jobs with major employers such as Microsoft, Google, Amazon, and other industry leaders,” Olwell said. “The University expects to prepare students for similar career-focused success through this new certificate program on campus.”The first cohort of students on the University’s Lacey campus will begin in late October, and the next in February. In January, Saint Martin’s will begin a 42-week evening/weekend cohort, Olwell said. About 20 students will be enrolled in each group.For more information or to begin the application process, interested veterans and active-duty military can contact Robert Bone, manager of the Microsoft Academy at Saint Martin’s JBLM extension campus, 253-964-4688; [email protected] Others interested in the Lacey campus program can contact Computer Science Chair Mario Guimaraes, Ph.D., 360-688-2662;[email protected]
Facebook32Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Westport WineryThe non-profit International Mermaid Museum was awarded a $1000 grant this week from Northwest Farm Credit Services headquartered in Spokane, Washington. Museum founder Kim Roberts said, “This grant is special since it will allow us to feature a display on oyster farming here on the Washington Coast. We will tie it back to the story of Ben-Varrey mermaids from Scotland.”The museum has a clear mission of teaching ocean ecology from seashore to sea floor immersed in mermaid mythology. Roberts said, “Our board of directors believes offering these lessons within the mythology of merfolk will allow the museum to engage all ages in a fun and unique manner. When you look around the world, virtually all seafaring nations have mermaid lore. This is one of those things that unites different cultures.”The museum’s grant application was sponsored by Stan and Jill Schwartz Farms in Reardan, Washington. A portion of the proceeds from spirits crafted by Ocean’s Daughter Distillery are donated to support the museum. The distillery will release a new whiskey made from Washington white winter wheat grown on the Schwartz farm later this year. Ben-Varrey is the name of their Irish cream liqueur.This is the first museum in the world dedicated to mermaids. It will be constructed on the grounds of Westport Winery Garden Resort on the Washington Coast. This is also home to Ocean’s Daughter Distillery.This is the second grant awarded to the museum. The first came from the Awesome Foundation in the amount of $750.Inquiries about making financial donations or items to include in the display are encouraged by emailing [email protected]
