first_img May 21, 2020 Bill Signing,  Español,  Press Release El Gobernador Tom Wolf firmó hoy el Proyecto de Ley 327 de la Cámara de Representantes, ahora Ley 21 de 2020, que permite la venta temporal de cócteles para llevar en bares, restaurantes u hoteles con licencia para la venta de bebidas alcohólicas. La ley entra en vigencia de inmediato.“Esta nueva norma de carácter temporal genera más ventas para los bares y restaurantes en un momento en que las necesitan, ayuda a satisfacer la demanda de los clientes y apoya el distanciamiento social”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “A medida que nos acercamos al fin de semana festivo, recomiendo a todos los residentes de Pennsylvania que recuerden beber con responsabilidad”.La ley corresponde a bares, restaurantes y hoteles que han perdido el 25% de las ventas totales mensuales promedio durante la emergencia por la COVID-19. Las bebidas deben venderse en recipientes con una tapa segura en cantidades que varían desde 4 oz. a 64 oz. antes de las 11 p.m. Se exige un sello adicional en la abertura para sorbetes en las tapas. En el plazo de 60 días, los bares y restaurantes deben usar un dispositivo de escaneo de transacciones para verificar la edad del consumidor si la persona parece ser menor de 35 años.“Nuestros restaurantes locales están trabajando arduamente para alimentar a nuestras comunidades durante este momento difícil”, dijo el Representante Perry Warren. “La Ley 21 agiliza el proceso para que los residentes decidan si permiten la venta de alcohol en un municipio ‘seco’ y permite que los restaurantes sumen otro producto para que sus clientes recojan y lleven desde la acera durante esta crisis. Agradezco al Gobernador Wolf y a mis colegas de ambos partidos por apoyar este proyecto de ley”.La norma de carácter temporal expira luego de que finalice la emergencia por desastre a causa de la COVID-19 y cuando una empresa alcance el 60% de su capacidad.Se aplica la ley de envases abiertos de Pennsylvania.Ver información adicional de la Junta de Control de Bebidas Alcohólicas de Pennsylvania.View this information in English.

Johnson backs Graham to end goal drought

Posted on

first_imgSunderland winger Adam Johnson has backed January signing Danny Graham to come good in the club’s hour of need. The 27-year-old frontman – a £5million transfer window acquisition from Swansea – will carry the burden of firing the Black Cats to Barclays Premier League safety after it was revealed that leading scorer Steven Fletcher will miss the final eight games of the campaign with ankle ligament damage. Graham is yet to add to the seven goals this term with which he arrived. But Johnson is convinced he is ready to make his mark, and he told Sky Sports News: “It’s important someone gets the goals with Fletch missing because we haven’t scored that many or created many chances. When we get them, it’s important to put them away. I think Danny is a couple of games away from getting a good run.” He added: “Fletch has proved himself this season. Without his goals, we would be in a lot worse position. He’s going to be a big miss for us. “I think it’s important for the whole team to step up now and put the performances in we know we are capable of.” Misfortune struck for Fletcher on international duty when he was carried off the field on a stretcher just minutes into Scotland’s 2-1 World Cup qualifier defeat by Wales on Friday. But if his premature departure was a blow to international boss Gordon Strachan, it was a bigger setback for club counterpart Martin O’Neill, with his side battling to avoid being dragged into the fight for Premier League survival. Fletcher’s 11 goals for the club he joined for £12million from Wolves during the summer have proved invaluable, and his absence robs O’Neill of his most potent weapon just when he needs him most, with leaders Manchester United due on Wearside on Saturday and clashes with Chelsea and Everton to come either side of a derby trip to Newcastle. Johnson said: “It’s been so frustrating because we have got some really good players. We haven’t had the results and have struggled massively at times. “All the lads are really frustrated, but we have got to keep working hard and hopefully it will come.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

What we learned from Syracuse’s 28-9 loss to Wake Forest

Posted on

first_img Published on October 9, 2016 at 2:19 am Contact Chris: cjlibona@syr.edu | @ChrisLibonati Facebook Twitter Google+ Sterling Hofrichter isn’t as bad as his last few gamesThe Syracuse punter has had a rough go of it to say the least. He struggled when Syracuse played Notre Dame at MetLife Stadium on Oct. 1, when he averaged just 39.5 yards per punt. Against Wake Forest, his punts traveled an average of 41.5 yards, but he forced three fair catches and dropped two inside the 20-yard line.It was the third time all season that Hofrichter had more than one of his punts be called for a catch. Two of his punts traveled more than 50 yards, which is also just the second time he’s done that more than once in a game.Against WFU, Hofrichter took more direct snaps than diagonal snaps while still punting rugby-style at times. Instead of punting higher, he punted more direct line drives that rolled longer. He also had to contend with the conditions in a game that was both windy and rainy for the majority.Ally Moreo | Asst. Photo EditorWeather and poor blitz pick-up is the only thing that can hold Amba Etta-Tawo backAmba Etta-Tawo had his worst game of the season on Saturday with four catches for 36 yards. Despite that, he’ll still likely be leading the country in receiving yards after Week 6 of the college football season is over.He has 876 yards on the year, just 16 yards better than Louisiana Tech’s Trent Taylor, who had a 100-plus yard receiving day on Saturday. Syracuse has relied on Etta-Tawo all season, but finally weather put a kibosh on deep throws in the first half.Wake Forest rarely shaded a safety over the top of Etta-Tawo, a strategy that worked for Notre Dame at times last week. Despite the mix of one-on-one coverage and the rain stopping in the second half, Syracuse still didn’t pass deep.Head coach Dino Babers said Syracuse struggled picking up the blitz on Saturday, which didn’t give quarterback Eric Dungey enough time in the pocket to throw deep. Dungey was sacked six times against the Demon Deacons. Commentscenter_img WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Syracuse (2-4, 0-2 Atlantic Coast) lost its second straight game on Saturday. Wake Forest (5-1, 2-1) beat the Orange for the first time since SU joined the ACC, 28-9. SU struggled gaining yards in the air and only broke a few runs. SU scored on a safety from a botched snap on a punt and a Dontae Strickland touchdown in the first half. It failed to score more than 10 points in a second half for the fifth time in six games.Here are three things we learned from the Orange’s lossRunnin’, runnin’ and runnin’ runnin’On certain drives, Syracuse plugged some of Wake Forest’s run gaps well enough to stop the Demon Deacons. But there were a few big plays SU allowed that burned it, which isn’t so new. Wake Forest ran the ball 51 times, but one of those rushes was counted as a team rush for the botched punt in the first quarter. That took 45 yards off its total.With those 45 yards and one attempt taken out, WFU ran the ball 50 times for 235 yards, good for 4.7 yards per carry. SU has allowed 5.4 yards per carry this season in all its other games. But the Orange also allowed at least three runs of 17 or more yards, including quarterback John Wolford’s long touchdown.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAs linebacker Zaire Franklin tried to come up with an answer about the plays SU did stop, he thought up an answer to how SU was able to contain the run for the most part, he reverted back to SU allowing longer runs.“But they busted (a few),” Franklin said.MORE COVERAGE:With the loss against Wake Forest, Syracuse’s bowl chances are shatteredSU has now lost three of its last fourBreaking down the Orange’s loss to Wake Forest in graphicslast_img read more
