NEW DELHI: India added a record number of coronavirus cases Sunday, approaching Russia as the world s third most infected nation as it opens a mass treatment center in the capital to fight the pandemic. The health ministry reported just under 25,000 cases and 613 deaths in 24 hours the biggest daily spike since the first case was detected in late January. The sharp rise came as Delhi started treating patients at a spiritual center converted into a sprawling isolation facility and hospital with 10,000 beds, many made of cardboard. About the size of 20 football fields, the facility will treat mild symptomatic and asymptomatic cases. State government officials fear the metropolis could record more than half a million cases by the end of the month. India s surge took the total tally to more than 673,000 cases and 19,268 deaths, with the country on the cusp of surpassing badly hit Russia. A strict lockdown in place since late March has gradually been lifted, allowing most activities as the economy nose dived amid the shutdown. Schools, metro trains in cities, cinemas, gyms and swimming pools remain closed however and international flights are still grounded. Authorities have made wearing masks mandatory in public places, while large gatherings are banned and shops and other public establishments are required to implement social distancing. The western state of Maharashtra, the worst hit state and home to financial hub Mumbai, recorded over 7,000 new cases. Southern Tamil Nadu state and the national capital New Delhi recorded more than 4,200 and 2,500 fresh cases respectively. Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai, Tamil Nadu s capital, are the worst affected cities. The national government says it has tackled the virus well but critics allege India is conducting very few tests, leaving the true scale of the pandemic unknown. ROME: Ennio Morricone, one of the world s best known and most prolific film composers, died in Rome on Monday at the age of 91. Tributes poured in for the man who composed the music for about 500 films, including his old childhood friend Sergio Leone s 1966 spaghetti western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and Quentin Tarantino s The Hateful Eight for which he finally won an Oscar in 2016. Morricone died in hospital where he was being treated for a fractured femur following a fall, according to a statement from lawyer and family friend Giorgio Assuma. Morricone passed away in the early hours of July 6 with the comfort of his faith, the statement said. He remained fully lucid and with great dignity right until the end, it added. Tributes began pouring in for the maestro soon after his death was announced. We will remember forever and with infinite gratitude the artistic genius of maestro Ennio Morricone, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said. He made us dream, he moved us and made us think, writing unforgettable notes that will remain forever in the history of music and cinema, he said on Twitter. Italian film actress Monica Bellucci said of Morricone that there are people who have the ability to make the world better because they know how to create beauty, while Gilles Jacob, the former head of the Cannes film festival, described him as the emperor of film music. Famed Italian conductor Riccardo Muti called Morricone a master for whom I nurtured friendship and admiration, describing him as an extraordinary musician who could jump with ease from film scores to classical music. Born on November 10, 1928, Morricone began composing at the tender age of six, and at just 10 he enrolled in trumpet school at the prestigious Saint Cecilia conservatory in Rome. He played in jazz bands throughout the 1940s before beginning to ghost write for film and theater. In 1961, at the age of 33, he collaborated with director Luciano Salce in Mission Ultra secrete before going on to gain fame with the score for A Fistful of Dollars starring Clint Eastwood in 1964. Before winning the elusive Oscar for best film score at age 87 in 2016, the Rome born son of a trumpeter had been nominated no fewer than five times. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences embarrassed that such a talent had not been recognized sooner presented him with a lifetime achievement award in 2007. Morricone s previous nominations were for Days of Heaven (1978), The Mission (1986), The Untouchables (1987), Bugsy (1991) and Malena (2000). Although he is most closely associated in the public mind with Leone s westerns starring Eastwood, Morricone s composition for Roland Joffe s Jesuit drama The Mission is considered by many critics to be his cinematic masterpiece, an epic and eclectic reflection of South America s musical melting pot. Throughout his career, Morricone worked with some of Hollywood s most acclaimed filmmakers as well as arthouse directors. After his collaboration with Leone, he worked with Italian screen legends Federico Fellini and Pier Paolo Pasolini and later with the likes of Pedro Almodovar, Bernardo Bertolucci, Brian De Palma and Oliver Stone.

Protecting innocence Family Families push back against so called comprehensive sex ed in schools by Mary Jackson Posted 5 29 20, 05:01 pm When Sandi Padilla distributed leaflets in Downey, Calif., neighborhoods and held signs outside local public schools to oppose her school district s new sex education curriculum, she was thinking of her 4 year old twin granddaughters. She said she is fighting for the girls who will start school in August.The curriculum in question, called Teen Talk, normalizes sexual activity and homosexuality and teaches pre teens and teenagers that they could be born in the wrong body. One parent took photos of pages from the curriculum and circulated them among friends, churches, and others. Reading the material made my stomach turn, Padilla said.
Spain will reopen its borders to tourists in July and its top soccer division will kick off again in June, the Prime Minister said on Saturday, marking another phase in the easing of one of the world''s strictest lockdowns.Pedro Sanchez''s dual announcements coincided with calls for his resignation over the lockdown''s impact on the economy from the far right Vox party, which called protests in cities across Spain drawing thousands of horn blaring cars and motorbikes.
The Spanish government plans to extend a nationwide lockdown by two weeks, after the country became the third nation to report more than 20,000 deaths linked to the coronavirus.Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez s plan, which requires parliamentary approval, would extend a stay at home order to May 9. While the bulk of the confinement rules will stay in place, children will be allowed to leave their homes under strict rules as of April 27, he told reporters on Saturday. Without an extension, Spain s state of emergency would expire on April 25.
We will do whatever it takes. We will make it, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro S nchez tweeted (in English) two days ago when he saluted the European Central Bank s new giant asset buying program.And Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said recently in a speech (in Italian) that his country s and Europe s policies to counter the economic impact of the virus outbreak should be inspired by the logic of whatever it takes (last three words in English).
Pedro S nchez ''s options for staying in power don ''t look any easier this time around, but no rival looks strong enough to take him down.

COLORADO is Young;s 38th( ) studio album, the follow up to 2017;s The Visitor. It marks first time he;s recorded with Crazy Horse since 2012;s Psychedelic Pill, which ranks among his strongest late career efforts. As previously reported, the new album will come with a documentary about its making entitled Mountaintop Sessions, directed by C.K. Vollick.Recent live tours with the Horse have featured guitar virtuoso Nils Lofgren who played on the band 's non Neil associated 1971 self titled debut but had been absent from the lineup since filling in for longtime guitarist Frank Sampedro, and today 's announcement confirms that will be the case on the album as well. Hardcore Neil nerds may note that the COLORADO lineup of Young, Lofgren, drummer Ralph Molina, and bassist Billy Talbot is closer to that of the Santa Monica Flyers, the band he assembled for the legendary Tonight 's the Night sessions, than any canonical Crazy Horse crew. But whatever
