New Restrictions In NSW As Aussies Brave Harsh Lockdown To Contain Delta Variant, Third Wave

AUSTRALIA - TRENDING COVID-19 Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and state premiers were under increasing public pressure to get on top of a fast-growing Delta variant COVID-19 outbreak that poses the country's biggest threat in months https://t.co/Q85zBlAkzM — Reuters (@Reuters) July 16, 2021 New NSW restrictions:   NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced a slew of new restrictions in a bid to stymie the further spread of the Covid-19 virus. Among the measures is a complete halt on construction work, small or large until July 30.  Also, employees cannot be compelled by their bosses to report to work. Their bosses risk a huge penalty if found violating the restriction rule. Victoria's five-day snap lockdown is getting even tougher as the community recorded 19 new Covid-19 cases on Saturday. The state's exposure sites for the virus rose to 165 as health authorities initiated a "going early and going hard" lockdown approach to identify and stall the spre

Pic courtesy: Lee Hsien Loong Amid the negativity involving the KTV Lounge Covid-19 controversy, Singapore unveiled a huge positive - a mega floating solar farm. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who had cheered and wished the #OneTeamSG on their Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics quest a day ago, launched the 60 megawatt-peak (MWp) solar photovoltaic (PV) farm that marks 14 July 2021 as a milestone in the city-state’s #SGGreenPlan.  Christened the Sembcorp Tengeh Floating Solar Farm at the Tengeh Reservoir, this floating solar farm - the size of 45 football fields - is among the world’s world’s largest inland floating solar PV systems. Land-scarce, resource-scarce Singapore needed this. Singaporeans water demand is projected to double by 2060. This required PUB, Singapore's National Water Agency to plan and install 122,000 solar panels across 45 hectares at the reservoir. This installation promis

How To Enjoy Cost-Saving Air Travel With Hotel And Parking Deals This Summer?

UNITED STATES / CANADA Image by Jan Vašek from Pixabay The travel bug has kicked in again! It had to, after the devastation the global pandemic caused since early 2020. Governments are lifting lockdowns and the ban on international travel as we ease out of the pandemic. So, you may now be air traveling to your favorite destination, bucket list destination, or looking to experience new places. There are a few exceptions and caveats though. The U.S. government's latest COVID-19 Travel Guidance for U.S. Citizens says "Negative COVID-19 test required for all air passengers coming to the United States." The European Union has officially recommended that all its member nations open their borders for American tourists. The Schengen Area countries are now open to receive U.S. travelers. The United Kingdom too has green signaled American tourists with a similar ask. All American visitors must quarantine for 10 days and also show proof of a negative Covid-19 test. The U.S. adminis

EURO2020 Predictions: Italy Favourites To Trounce Austria, Denmark Favoured Over Euro2016 Semifinalists Wales

Here's the Round of 16 draw and schedule. MMMM MMM GOOD. #EURO2020 #Euro2021 pic.twitter.com/ipeQDaGmMU — Tom Harrington (@cbctom) June 23, 2021 The Azzuri face a tricky Austria in their Round of 16 clash.  Roberto Mancini's XI did not face tough opponents in the group matches. You may say the Italians were tested by Wales before winning 1-0 in their group encounter. True, but they had rested eight of their regulars for that final group match. The fact is, Italy have got into the Round of 16 winning all three group matches. They haven't conceded a goal in their previous 10 matches and are on a 30-match unbeaten spree. That's not all. Italy have defeated Austria in all of their 13 previous meetings since 1962, including four defeats at FIFA World Cup matches.  The second match to begin the Round of 16 puts Denmark as firm favourite against Wales, the 2016 semifinalists. Although the Welsh have won four of their previous 10 games against the Danes, they have lost all th
