first_imgGov. Wolf: State Continues Phased Reopening with 16 More Counties Set to Go Green on June 5 May 29, 2020 SHARE Email Facebook Twittercenter_img Press Release,  Public Health With more than 80 percent of the state in some phase of reopening, Governor Tom Wolf today announced that 16 additional counties will take another step forward and move to green effective 12:01 a.m., June 5. Counties include Allegheny, Armstrong, Bedford, Blair, Butler, Cambria, Clinton, Fayette, Fulton, Greene, Indiana, Lycoming, Mercer, Somerset, Washington, and Westmoreland.The first 18 counties moved to green today, including Bradford, Cameron, Centre, Clarion, Clearfield, Crawford, Elk, Forest, Jefferson, Lawrence, McKean, Montour, Potter, Snyder, Sullivan, Tioga, Venango and Warren.Eight counties moved to yellow today, including Dauphin, Franklin, Huntingdon, Lebanon, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike, and Schuylkill.Counties that remain in red and are expected to move to yellow by June 5 include Berks, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Lackawanna, Lancaster, Lehigh, Northampton, Montgomery, and Philadelphia.With more than half the state poised to be in the green phase on June 5, the governor this week provided an updated order for counties moving to green to give businesses and residents a clearer picture of what is permitted in that phase of reopening. The order includes these highlights:• Large gatherings of more than 250 prohibited.• Restaurants and bars open at 50% occupancy.• Personal care services (including hair salons and barbershops) open at 50% occupancy and by appointment only.• Indoor recreation, health and wellness facilities, and personal care services (such as gyms and spas) open at 50% occupancy with appointments strongly encouraged.• All entertainment (such as casinos, theaters, and shopping malls) open at 50% occupancy.• Construction activity may return to full capacity with continued implementation of protocols.• Visitation to prisons and hospitals may resume subject to the discretion of the facility. Visitors who interact with residents and patients must be diligent regarding hygiene. Given the critical importance of limiting COVID-19 exposure in nursing homes, personal care home and long-term care facilities, visitation restrictions will initially remain in place.Business frequently asked questions were also updated and are available here.Gov. Wolf also provided more options for counties in the yellow phase by allowing outdoor dining beginning June 5 and providing Summer Camp Guidance for providers, parents and caregivers.The Summer Camp Guidance includes information on what types of programs for children are permitted during the phased reopening, status of public playgrounds and the operation of community pools, and the status of organized team sports.The state continues to use risk-based metrics from Carnegie Mellon University, combined with contact tracing and testing capability and a sustained reduction in COVID-19 hospitalizations, to make decisions on county moves. The 50 new cases per 100,000 population continues to be a consideration, but not a sole deciding factor.As more counties and residents enjoy loosened restrictions, the governor stressed the need to balance resuming activities with keeping case counts low and taking personal responsibility by wearing a mask or choosing to stay away from crowds to reduce the likelihood of coming into contact with someone carrying COVID-19.“If we take the simple steps of wearing a mask, staying home when sick, and implementing social distancing tactics, we can help eliminate the spread of COVID-19 and make a huge contribution to getting our commonwealth back on track,” Gov. Wolf said.Ver esta página en español.last_img read more

Lyon Gaming rebrand to Rainbow7 following ruling

first_imgAn excerpt from the announcement translates as:“Today we change but with the support of our fans we are determined to achieve a new championship, Some will say it could be the tenth, others will say that could be the first of a new age, it doesn’t matter, today we embrace the change with Professionalism, passion and commitment to remain the best in the region.With renewed enthusiasm and ambition, we will fight under our new badge. To continue to give joy and satisfaction to our thousands of followers, thank you all, expect great news very soon!After the storm comes calm, comes Rainbow7.”Lyon Gaming’s original logoRiot’s ruling forced Lyon’s hand after they were notified by a third party that the name and logo of Lyon Gaming did not belong to the organisation’s owner. That constituted a direct violation of the contract that the team had signed upon entering the league, when they had signed legal documentation acknowledging their rights to the brand – whilst apparently aware that the appropriate rights were actually in conflict.Rainbow7’s update received a mixed response on social media, which should have been expected given the complete change of design and colour from a relatively standard sporting aesthetic to something totally distinctive, and somewhat eccentric.What is more alarming is a response to the Facebook post from a Graphics Design student, who pointed out a disturbing similarity to an existing logo on a website offering design services. The logo appears to be the winner of a ‘Progressive Logo Design‘ contest:A side-by-side comparison of a logo from designcrowd.com (L) next to Rainbow7’s new logo (R).It’s unclear if Rainbow7 held the competition, but the brief for the listing seems to have been written with Electronic Dance Music in mind, not gaming. The page shows up among the first results in a Google search for ‘modern progressive logo design’. Fans will be hoping that this time, the organisation has the requisite ownership of their assets, and that the team can steer clear of landing themselves in hot water once again.Esports Insider says: A spicy new brand from the Mexican team looks certain to provide a source of Rainbow Six-inspired memes; hopefully, that is the worst issue they face and they now have the proper ownership of their assets, as they look to move on from the ruling. One month after Riot Games announced that Lyon Gaming would be fined following a brand dispute, the organisation has renamed to Rainbow7.An official ruling by Riot in early November brought to light a breach of contract committed by Mexican League of Legends powerhouse Lyon Gaming, who it was revealed did not own the rights to the team’s name and logo. Fast forward thirty days, and the team has a new name – and a colourful new image. They shared the fresh look in a Facebook post last night.last_img read more
