South Korea accuses religious sect leader as COVID-19 cases surge

first_imgSouth Korea accused the leader of a religious sect on Sunday of violating self-isolation rules and obstructing investigations into the country’s biggest outbreak of new coronavirus in five months.South Korea on Sunday reported 279 new cases on Sunday, more than double the 103 reported on Friday, with most of the new infections found in and around Seoul.The capital posted a record 146 new cases, out of which 107 were linked to Sarang Jeil Church led by Rev. Jun Kwang-hoon, a controversial pastor and an outspoken government critic. The health ministry said it will file a complaint against Jun later on Sunday, accusing him of violating self-isolation rules by participating in a rally on Saturday and “obstructing” epidemiological investigation by failing to submit a full list of church members for testing and tracing.Thousands of demonstrators took to the street on the Aug. 15 liberation day on Tuesday, protesting against President Moon Jae-in’s policies and defying a ban on rallies in the capital.The surge in COVID-19 cases prompted authorities on Sunday to reimpose tighter social distancing curbs, and President Moon warned of “stern and strong measures” against “some churches”, calling their behavior an “unforgivable act that threatens public lives.”Jun’s church did not respond to telephone calls from Reuters seeking comment.Another Christian sect, Shincheonji Church of Jesus, was at the center of the country’s largest outbreak of COVID-19 infections in February. The secretive group was linked to 36 percent of South Korea’s total cases, and on Aug.1, South Korean authorities arrested its founder, Lee Man-hee, for allegedly hiding crucial information from contact-tracers.Topics :last_img read more

Miciah Hidlebaugh

first_imgHobby Stock rookie Miciah Hidlebaugh will go dancing Saturday night at the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s. (IMCA Photo) BOONE, Iowa (Sept. 2) – Miciah Hidlebaugh has enjoyed racing with many of the best Hobby Stock drivers in IMCA throughout his rookie season. “I was hoping to but didn’t think I’d make it. Not a lot of people do but my car has been really good all year,” Hidlebaugh said. “On Saturday night I’m just going to try to keep my nose clean and run up front with the big dogs. It’s fun to race with drivers who are fast every week.” The 19-year-old from Adel earned his date in the big dance by running seventh in Monday’s se­cond qualifying feature at Boone Speedway.  He’ll race with them again Saturday night in the main event at the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s.center_img He got his start in the sport in go-karts. Hidlebaugh started eighth in his qualifier and ran as high as fourth part of the way before ending in seventh, one spot behind national point leader Jeff Ware and fully aware of how many cars had finished ahead of him. Hidlebaugh watched his father race a Stock Car and always wanted to get into a full-bodied car himself. His first-year Hobby Stock campaign most often took him to Stuart and Boone.  “I knew I had qualified,” Hidlebaugh said after helping push his car out of the post-race tech tent. “I was screaming in my helmet.”last_img read more

LONGSHOT CASTLE GOES GATE TO WIRE TO WIN $100,000 CALIFORNIA FLAG HANDICAP BY A NECK UNDER CEDILLO

first_imgLONGSHOT CASTLE GOES GATE TO WIRE TO WIN $100,000 CALIFORNIA FLAG HANDICAP BY A NECK UNDER CEDILLO; TRAINED BY GLATT, HE GETS 5 ½ FURLONGS ON TURF IN 1:01.51RACE IS PART OF LUCRATIVE GOLDEN STATE SERIES FOR CALIFORNIA-BRED OR SIRED HORSES     ARCADIA, Calif. (Oct. 19, 2019)–Claimed for $40,000 last time out, trainer Mark Glatt’s Castle broke sharply and made every pole a winning one in Saturday’s $100,000 California Flag Handicap, as he prevailed by neck under Abel Cedillo in 1:01.51–the fastest 5 ½ furlongs on turf at Santa Anita’s current Autumn Meet.With even money favorite Tribalist unexpectedly far back early, Castle cleared off by a length heading into the far turn, with eventual second place finisher Grinning Tiger tracking in second.“It looked like there was a lot of speed in the race and all Mark said was ‘Stay Close,’ said Cedillo, who was aboard the 6-year-old Slew’s Tiznow gelding for the first time.  “My horse broke really good and we made the lead very easy and that was good for me.”Claimed out of a close sixth place finish going five furlongs on turf Aug. 25 at Del Mar, Castle was off at 5-1 and paid $12.00, $5.00 and $3.00.“I thought he was a little lightly raced for his age, so I was a little skeptical for the $40,000, but  (the owners) were willing and I couldn’t see a reason not to claim him,” said Glatt.  “Like with a lot of horses, I think the (extra half furlong) has helped him.  Personally, I don’t care for the five eighths races, it takes a specialized horse.  That extra furlong makes a difference.”Owned by Where We At (stable), Castle, who is out of the Mr. Greeley mare Grand Advice, picked up his first career stakes win and his sixth win from 14 overall starts.  With the winner’s share of $60,000, he now has earnings of $208,947.Ridden by Heriberto Figueroa, Grinning Tiger was clearly second best on the day, finishing 1 ¼ lengths in front of King Abner.  Off at 7-1, Grinning Tiger paid $9.00 and $5.80.King Abner, ridden by Martin Garcia, had two horses beaten going into the far turn and just touched second choice What a View by a nose for third money. Off at 8-1, King Abner paid $5.40 to show.Tribalist, off at even money, finished fifth.Fractions on the race were 22.41, 44.52 and 55.66.last_img read more
