MANILA – There is no indication yet that magma is rising from beneath the edifice to the main crater of the Kanlaon Volcano despite recent earthquakes, according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs). Solidum also noted that the recent earthquakes in Kanlaon were due to the movement of faults at the base of the volcano. “Hindi pa ito ‘yung mga lindol na nagpapahiwatig sa atin na umaakyat na magma,” Solidum said in an interview with DZBB. “‘Yung pagsabog na may magmang lalabas, wala pa tayong senyales.” “Short-term electronic tilt monitoring on the southeastern flanks recorded continuing deflation on the lower slopes but inflation on the mid slopes since April 2020,” it added./PN “Ground deformation data from continuous GPS measurements indicate a slight deflation of the lower and mid slopes since January 2020,” said Phivolcs. “Ang paglindol o pagkilos ng fault sa paanan ay posibleng dulot ng pressurization dahil may pagpapakulo ng tubig, manifested nga ng moderate steaming o ‘di kaya magma activity na napakalalim pa,” he said. Based on the latest report by PHIVOLCS on Friday, a total of 25 volcano tectonic earthquakes were recorded from the western flanks of Negros Island-based volcano in the last 24 hours. Sulfur dioxide (SO2) emission, a major gas component of magma, was measured at an average of 237 tonnes per day, an indication that hydrothermal or magmatic activity is occurring beneath the edifice PHIVOLCS Officer-in-Charge Undersecretary Renato Solidum Jr. said in a radio interview that the recent earthquakes were recorded only at the base of the Kanlaon and not yet under the edifice to the crater of the volcano.
Thunberg tweeted of herself sitting amid bags and suitcases on the floor of what she called “overcrowded trains through Germany.”The company released a statement apologizing and saying they “continue working hard on getting more trains, connections and seats.”They also thanked Thunberg for supporting the company’s battle against climate change.But upon reflection, Deutsche Bahn said that Thunberg’s “overcrowded” claims were just hot air.DB responded testily, pointing out that Thunberg had travelled in first class during her journey through Germany.“Dear Greta, thanks for supporting us railway workers in our fight against climate change. We are happy that you travelled with us on the ICE 174 on Saturday,” tweeted DB’s official account in German.“It would have been nicer if you had also mentioned the friendly and competent manner in which you were treated by staff at your seat in first class,” they added.The company then followed up the tweets with a press release, in which they added that Greta’s travel companions “were sitting in first class from Frankfurt onwards”.Thunberg hit back on Twitter, claiming she had found a seat at a stop after Frankfurt, which she said was “no problem”.The rail company claimed that the teenager had a seat in first class between Kassel and Hamburg and that other members of her team were already sitting in first class from Frankfurt onwards.“It would have been even nicer if you had also reported how friendly and competently our team served you at your seat in first class,” the company added.Thunberg then claimed that jam-packed trains were actually great and having to sit on the floor wasn’t an issue. A German railway company has taken back an apology they made to Greta Thunberg after they realized the climate activist wasn’t schlepping it on the train’s floor but instead was treated “friendly” in first class.Thunberg, 16, provoked a testy reaction from Germany’s oft-maligned rail operator when she tweeted from a DB train on her journey home from the COP25 climate summit in Madrid.“Traveling on overcrowded trains through Germany. And I’m finally on my way home!” wrote Thunberg above a picture of herself sitting on the floor of a carriage surrounded by suitcases.Greta Thunberg, a self-described activist with psychological problems, wrote that she was travelling on overcrowded trains through Germany. It turns out that she had a first class train ticket but opted to sit on the ground without any reason! SHAME ON YOU! #GretaThunberg pic.twitter.com/2JeE0ZORWj— Donald J.

In that game, Karim Benzema scored the opening for Real in the 7th minute, but around the half-hour mark, Merino Zuloaga netted a wonderful team goal to bring parity in the scoreline.Real was looking for inspiration towards the talisman Cristiano Ronaldo, but the Portuguese star was well below his best on the night and could not inject life into the flat Real attack. But just seven minutes from the normal time, Alvaro Morata, who, despite coming as a substitute, sent Gareth Bale’s cross into the back of the net and won the game for his side.Zinedine Zidane’s team has struggled heavily this season, and the Frenchman soon had to figure out the solutions for the difficulties of his team if Real Madrid wants to challenge for major honors this season.However, the Spanish league is off to a tight race atop the standings, with five teams separated by only three points. Yet, most of the talk entering the weekend is about whether Ronaldo will end his scoring slump.Real Madrid leads the league ahead of its match at Alaves today, but no thanks to Ronaldo’s recent performances. The forward is enduring his worst start to a season since joining Madrid in 2009, having scored only four goals in nine matches.”When you’re used to scoring almost 70 goals a season, it’s almost like an addiction for goals,” Madrid reserve forward Alvaro Morata said. ”For us, he is the most important player in the team and I hope that he scores lots of goals, but he is not a machine. He is a human being. Even if he comes from another planet and is different, he also has the right to miss.”Ronaldo also scored five goals in two games with Portugal, against Andorra and the Faeroe Islands in World Cup qualifying, but that’s no reprieve to the demanding Madrid fans.He was jeered by the crowd at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium after another disappointing performance in a 2-1 win against Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.”The fans demand a lot of players,” Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said. ”The Bernabeu is special and we know it. Cristiano knows it and he is used to it. The important thing is to continue with our work.”Ronaldo has scored only two goals in the Spanish league – in a 5-2 win against Osasuna in September and a 6-1 rout at Real Betis two weeks ago. He also scored two goals in the Champions League, one in a 2-2 draw at Borussia Dortmund and one in a 2-1 win over Sporting Lisbon, when his free-kick goal started a late rally.”Of course he wants to score more,” Madrid defender Marcelo said. ”He is a player who helps a lot and not only with goals, also with his work on the pitch.”The game against Osasuna was the first of the season for Ronaldo. He hadn’t played since injuring his left knee in the final of the European Championship, which Portugal won. Ronaldo seems fit and has had plenty of scoring chances, but has not been able to capitalise on them – including on some he usually converts. Zidane says he is not worried and that it’s just a matter of time before he starts finding the net again.The 31-year-old was among the Madrid players rested in the team’s 7-1 win over Cultural Leonesa in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday. He is set to return to the lineup on Saturday, when Zidane’s team tries to defend its Spanish league lead against promoted Alaves.Sevilla, one point behind Madrid, plays at Sporting Gijon today, while third-place Barcelona hosts last-place Granada in its 1,500th game at the Camp Nou. Contrary to Ronaldo, Barcelona’s Lionel Messi is enjoying one of the best starts of his career with 14 goals in 11 matches. He has more goals than Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema combined.Fourth-place Villarreal plays at Eibar on Sunday, and fifth-place Atletico Madrid, which led the league entering the last round, hosts Malaga today.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram • Concern over Ronaldo as goal drought persistsDeportivo Alaves will host Real Madrid in one of the La Liga matches as the league leader look to extend its lead at the top of the table, but all eyes will be on the Los Blancos talisman- Cristiano Ronaldo, as scoring slump continuesAthletic Bilbao was the last team Real Madrid faced in the league, and the Madrid side won that game, thanks to a late goal from Alvaro Morata. The game was far from easy for Los Blancos, as it struggled to find a way through a resolute Athletic defense.
With a dominating sweep of No. 9 St. Cloud State this weekend, the Wisconsin women?s hockey team extended its winning streak to eight games.By starting the second half of the season on an eight-game winning streak, the Badgers have fallen into a pattern that bodes well for their national title hopes. In the 2005-06 season, UW went 21-2 during the second semester of school on their way to their first of back-to-back national championships. In the 2006-07 season, UW was undefeated in their last 21 games on their way to championship No. 2.After suffering through a rough seven-game stretch in November during which the Badgers went 1-5-1, UW has found its stride once again and has started the second semester with an eight-game winning streak, just like the previous two National Championship teams.?Anytime when you have a group that starts in September, especially a younger group, it is going to take time for them to develop and understand what roles are going to be needed,? head coach Mark Johnson said. ?The end result, however, is by the time you get to January a lot of those things come together. The past three or four years we have been able to do that very successfully.??I don?t think we really improve from semester to semester. I just think it takes time to get used to one another,? senior Jinelle Zaugg added. ?We have taken strides to become united as a team, and that has led to our success.?Part of the reason it has taken UW a few months to gain successful team chemistry is the infusion of six freshmen. This weekend, four of the eight Badger goals were scored by freshmen, and the team believes that the struggles they went through earlier in the season will benefit the newcomers down the stretch.?They are all very talented,? Zaugg said of the freshmen. ?And they have all stepped up to the place we expected them to. They are great kids.??It is all a part of the growing process,? Johnson continued. ?They have to have both some successes and failures. Over the course of all that, they are going to become better players, and we have seen that progress this season.?As the team?s chemistry and confidence have risen, so has the offensive production. During their eight-game winning streak, the Badgers have averaged 3.6 goals per game and have scored at least three goals in each contest.?Part of it is confidence, and part of it is people accepting where they are in the pecking order,? Johnson said. ?That is usually the biggest hurdle we face as coaches because everyone wants to be a big part of the play and unfortunately we can?t have that. Once players accept that, we start to have some success.??We are playing more confidently,? freshman Hilary Knight added. ?We are being more aggressive with the puck. We just want to jump on them first and play a whole game. Earlier in the year we were only playing one or two periods, but now we are playing a full game.?
With almost no sports left to speak of during the COVID-19 pandemic, many are hopeful for the return of the University of Wisconsin football team in the fall.Headlined by their best recruiting class since 2000, which includes star offensive tackles in Trey Wedig and Jack Nelson, linebacker Nick Herbig, and potential Jonathan Taylor-replacement Jalen Berger, the Badgers are shaping up for yet another competitive season after finishing with a 10-4 record (7-3 Big Ten) and a Rose Bowl appearance in 2019.Football: Reliving some of Camp Randall’s greatest momentsWith all college and professional sports postponed indefinitely due to COVID-19, there is little to look forward to for Badger Read…As the Badgers head into the summer, there are many position battles to look forward to. The two biggest position battles will likely take place over quarterback, between Graham Mertz and Jack Coan, and over running back, between Garrett Groshek, Nakia Watson and Berger.Entering 2019, most thought Mertz would take over as the next quarterback for Wisconsin at some point during the season, as he emerged as one of Wisconsin’s best quarterback recruits in recent memory. Instead, Coan performed well from the get-go, as he created a better-than-expected duo with Taylor and kept the job all season. The competition between the two quarterbacks will be interesting to watch in 2020.As for running back, the most likely option is a platoon of Groshek, Watson and Berger. While Groshek and Watson are the returners, there is a chance Berger emerges as the best option to replace Taylor in 2020.UW Athletics: Sports you can do while stuck in quarantineWith the COVID-19 pandemic leaving us all trapped inside during self-isolation and quarantine, it can be difficult to stay sane. Read…Looking at Wisconsin’s season ahead, they will face their usual Big Ten West opponents in Minnesota, Illinois, Northwestern, Purdue, Nebraska and Iowa. From the Big Ten East, Wisconsin draws a seemingly easier set of teams than they faced in 2019, with Indiana, Michigan and Maryland all slated to battle the Badgers.While Wisconsin’s Big Ten schedule might be slightly easier in 2020, their non-conference schedule is almost certainly more difficult as Wisconsin will take on Southern Illinois, Appalachian State and Notre Dame.While Appalachian State comes from the Sun Belt conference, they are no stranger to big games. They beat Michigan 34–32 in 2007 in what is regarded as one of the biggest upsets in American sports history, with Michigan ahead by 33 points entering the game. Appalachian State has also finished with a winning record in all but one season since 1994, including five consecutive bowl wins from 2015-2019.Notre Dame is a similarly impressive program but at an elevated level. Under current Head Coach Brian Kelly, Notre Dame has finished with a winning record in nine of ten seasons and a 5-4 record in nine bowl games. The Badgers will take on the Fighting Irish at Lambeau Field as part of a two-year agreement between the teams. Wisconsin will play Notre Dame again in 2021 at Soldier Field in Chicago.UW Athletics: Profile of UW Club Baseball’s team president, JJ LambThe coronavirus pandemic has affected us all in different ways. For myself and most other people, it means sitting inside Read…With Wisconsin’s major position battles and schedule laid out, let’s predict Wisconsin’s outcomes for 2020.September:Wisconsin will have a fairly difficult September schedule, kicking off the season against Indiana at Camp Randall Sept. 4. Wisconsin follows this up with Southern Illinois (Sept. 12) and Appalachian State (Sept. 19) at Camp Randall. I think Wisconsin will manage to win all three games in front of the home crowd to start the season 3-0. The season begins to ramp up Sept. 26 when the Badgers take on Michigan on the road. The home team has won in each of the past four seasons, and I expect that trend to continue in 2020.October:Wisconsin’s schedule doesn’t get any easier in October, as they begin the month with games against Notre Dame (Oct. 3) at Lambeau Field and Minnesota (Oct. 10) at Camp Randall. I think Wisconsin will manage to win both games coming off of a loss to Michigan, putting them in good position to repeat as Big Ten West champions. After an off week, Wisconsin will play Maryland (Oct. 24) on the road before matching up with Illinois (Oct. 31) at Camp Randall. Despite losing to Illinois in 2019, I think Wisconsin will dominate both of these games in 2020, putting them at 7-1 (4-0 Big Ten) at the end of two months.November:Wisconsin’s final month of regular season football includes Northwestern (Nov. 7) at Wrigley Field, Purdue (Nov. 14) on the road, Nebraska (Nov. 21) at Camp Randall and Iowa (Nov. 28) on the road. I think Wisconsin should win the first three games, but the matchup with Iowa will be a tough way to end the season. Despite the fact that Wisconsin has won seven of the last eight matchups between the two teams, I’ll take Iowa in this one to put Wisconsin at 10-2 (7-1), good enough for another Big Ten West title and an appearance in the Big Ten Championship Game in December.

The current coach of Inter Milan, Roberto Mancini, praised the B&H representative and member of Rome Miralem Pjanic, and inscribed him in the best players in the Italian Serie A. Mancini defended this great midfielder, as well as some other players from Italy.“Pjanic, Pogba, Higuain, Callejon and Florenz are versatile players, just like Tevez. It’s amazing that they are being offended the fans, as well as a scene in which one of the fans of Juventus in the company of his son threatens the coach with his fists.They may be angry because of the defeat and they might whistle, but why to insult other people? Sunday is the day when some people use football to express displeasure over their life problems. This is not good and should be punished, “said Mancini.Juventus had two defeats in the last five rounds, and although it is the first on the board, some of the fans were not friendly at all towards their favorite players.Fans of Roma are still dissatisfied, because of two draws, two wins and a defeat recorded in the last five rounds. Roma’s bad scores last for a long time.(Source: klix.ba)
Here’s everything to know about betting on 49ers vs. Rams in Week 16, including updated odds, trends and our prediction for the Saturday night football game.MORE: Get the latest NFL odds & betting trends at Sports Insider49ers vs. Rams odds for ‘Saturday Night Football’San Francisco 49ers -6.5 vs. Los Angeles Rams, O/U 44The spread has not moved since the line opened on Sunday night, but the total has fallen by a significant margin. Originally, the total was set at 46.5, and that has steadily dropped to 44.49ers vs. Rams all-time seriesSan Francisco has a slight historical edge over its NFC West rival. The 49ers lead the all-time series with the Rams 70-67-3, and they won a whopping 17 straight games during the 1990s. Earlier in the season, San Francisco’s defense came up huge to lead the Niners past the Rams 20-7, allowing Sean McVay’s offense to compile just 10 first downs and 157 total yards.Four trends to know— Almost two-thirds of bettors like San Francisco to cover on Saturday night.— Sharp money is on the under as 66 percent of bets have come in on the over, but the line has continued to drop.— The Rams are 7-2 ATS in their last nine road games, but they are 22-46 ATS in their last 68 road games against a team with a winning home record— San Francisco is 7-18-1 ATS in its last 26 games as a favorite and 2-7-1 ATS in its last 10 games against division opponents.Three things to watchSan Francisco’s run defenseThe 49ers have had one of the best defenses in the NFL for most of the season, but the run defense has struggled the last few weeks. The loss of linebacker Kwon Alexander and nose tackle D.J. Jones made this front seven easier to run on, and San Francisco is now allowing 4.6 YPC. Starters strong safety Jaquiski Tartt and defensive end Dee Ford will miss this game due to injury as well, so Todd Gurley and the Rams could find success running the ball.The reigning NFL Defensive Player of the YearAaron Donald has won the last two Defensive Player of the Year awards, and he is having another stellar season. Donald has 11 sacks and 22 tackles for loss in 2019, and his play has opened things up for teammates like Dante Fowler Jr. and Clay Matthews. Opponents constantly double team Donald since he is the most disruptive player in the NFL, but if he can make his impact felt, the Rams could pull off the upset.LA’s receiversThe Rams boast one of the best receiving trios in the league. Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods will both be 1,000-yard receivers if they stay healthy, and Brandin Cooks remains a solid deep threat when he’s on the field. Kupp and Woods have been targeted a combined 236 times, and Jared Goff will constantly be looking their way. The San Francisco 49ers (11-3) surrendered control of the NFC with a loss at home to the Atlanta Falcons last week. That loss put the 49ers behind the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC West, and a second loss to Seattle in Week 17 would send San Francisco on the road for the first round of the playoffs. The 49ers’ attention is on the Los Angeles Rams (8-6) this week though, and a win would put them in position to potentially secure the No. 1 seed in the postseason in their season finale.As for the Rams, they still have a slim chance of making the playoffs, but they need to win out and Minnesota to lose its final two games to sneak into the postseason. The Rams will be favored by more than a touchdown next week against the Arizona Cardinals if they upset the 49ers, and the Vikings have losable games against Green Bay and Chicago to end the year. Player to watchGeorge Kittle is the best all-around tight end in the NFL. Kittle is a devastating run blocker that is constantly finishing his blocks with authority, and he is an excellent pass catcher too. He is coming off his best game of the season last week against Atlanta, and he is the most important person on this offense outside Jimmy Garoppolo.49ers vs. Rams predictionLos Angeles is a live dog in this game due to San Francisco’s injuries. The Rams have a real shot at pulling off the upset, but they don’t have a linebacker that can match up against Kittle. Look for him to be the difference maker.49ers 24, Rams 21
Girona’s coaching staff tries to maintain daily contact with its staff. And the positive messages are not lacking in each of the conversations that are held so that the confinement is as bearable as possible. This Friday night, the rojiblanco club wanted to show an extract of the speech that the coach, Pep Lluís Martí, made in the last hours to his players and other members of its coaching staff and has not hesitated to brand it as “positive energy to keep going“In the video call that Martí maintains with his players and assistants, he is sincere and tries to be as empathetic as possible. He does not hide that it is not being easy for him to spend so many days without being able to lead any session at La Vinya, but he thanks all his team and the footballers for the effort they are making. With a “let’s go to the trouble. I’ll tell you”, Martí wanted to be concise at the time of ask your group for an “effort”: “I imagine that this situation is not pleasant for any of us and I know that it is difficult to deal with. Especially due to the uncertainty, not only in the professional aspect but also in the staff, for you and your families. It is complicated, but we have no other option, as I always tell you, than to adapt to the situation. Is not easy, for me it is not, I will not cheat you. But this that we are experiencing we must try to carry out in the best possible way because it is the only one that will make us go forward. I want to ask you for the effort that you continue to maintain what you are doing. Do not lower your arms at any time and be prepared and aware that when this begins we must all be one hundred percent“ There is complete confidence in the group and hence there is no doubt that all the members of the Girona group are following the individualized training guidelines set. Caring for food is essential and maintaining the routine, too. Hence, before 10:00 all players must be active. That the state of mind of the group does not decline is vital for Martí and that is that in the Girona entity there are hopes that they will compete again this season because the objective pursued is none other than to return to the First Division.
