To date, Bacolod has 11 confirmed cases of COVID-19 with six recoveries and three deaths. “Any highly-urbanized city or provincial governments can no longer make its own decision to place their respective areas either on ECQ or GCQ without the approval of the IATF because this is the present guidelines of the national government,” he added. But Leonardia stressed that “there should be a gradual transition as coronavirus disease virus is undeniably deadly and unprecedented in its harm to public health such that its local transmission is still grave and present threat that cannot be underestimated.” BACOLOD City – The local government unit here is fine-tuning its game plan after May 15 when the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in the entire metro ends. The final decision now rests with the IATF, the mayor said. Meanwhile, Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson has already sent his proposal to the IATF for the extension of the GCQ in Negros Occidental./PN Once the IATF approve the proposal that will be submitted within this week, Leonardia said he will issue an executive order containing the guidelines for the transition. According to Mayor Evelio Leonardia, he will present to the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) a proposal about a shift to a transition period of general community quarantine (GCQ) after the second ECQ extension.
Center Peter Konz (66) has been constantly peppering Ryan Groy, a utility man of sorts for the Badger offense, with questions regarding the Illini’s defense all week in preparation.[/media-credit]The first time Ryan Groy stepped into a starting role on Wisconsin’s starting offensive line, he might have had an excuse for a mistake.This time, with starting center Peter Konz sidelined two to four weeks with a dislocated ankle? There’s little margin for error.Wisconsin, now ranked No. 17 in the BCS, controls its postseason destiny after the losses by Ohio State and Penn State this past weekend. Should the Badgers win out, they’ll represent the Big Ten Leaders division in the conference’s inaugural championship game Dec. 3. After that, a BCS bowl berth is beyond feasible.Konz suffered his injury in Saturday’s 42-13 win at Minnesota when running back Montee Ball was tackled into Konz’ left leg as the 6-foot-5, 315-pound junior center was making a block on the edge. Konz immediately crumpled to the ground, and after several minutes without much movement, was carted off the field. Fortunately for the Badgers, x-rays found no surgical damage anywhere in Konz’ ankle.So with a road game at Illinois looming Saturday and the season finale at home against Penn State the week after, Groy slides into a role he’s well accustomed to. Earlier this season, Groy filled in for left guard Travis Frederick when he sprained his MCL in Wisconsin’s season-opener against Nevada-Las Vegas. That was after spending the majority of last season as a fullback where he started two games, with some spot duty along the offensive line mixed in.“It’s hard, but it’s also very, very beneficial,” Frederick said, who’s bounced between guard and center himself. “When you have a position like that where you know three [different] positions, that’s just more that you know about the game in general. You see a look, you can see it from a center standpoint and you can see it from a guard standpoint. Even from [Groy’s] standpoint, you can see it from a fullback standpoint. You know where people are going and the way the things move better as a whole.”At 6-foot-5, 320 pounds, Groy’s figure bellows “center.” But as evidenced by his experience as a fullback, the Middleton native boasts stunning mobility for one of the biggest linemen on one of the nation’s biggest offensive lines.When he was thrust into the forefront of the offense following Frederick’s injury, both Konz and left tackle Ricky Wagner, unprovoked, labeled him the team’s quickest offensive lineman.“I’ve seen a huge change between last year and this year in just his ability to understand the defenses,” Konz said of Groy, with clear emphasis on “huge.” “It’s one thing to memorize plays, but it’s another to change those plays in the middle of the game or practice. That’s something he’s going to be able to do.”Indeed, when Groy suited up for his first start along the offensive line in Week 2 against Oregon State, the Badgers missed nary a step in a 35-0 shutout that saw UW gain 397 yards of total offense, 208 of which came on the ground. The offensive line cleared gaping holes for Wisconsin’s running backs, who together averaged 5.1 yards per carry.Saturday against the Illini, however, Groy will be charged with proving he’s more than an athletically gifted big man – he’ll need to set Wisconsin’s offense against Illinois’ 12th-ranked scoring defense.“Right now, I’ve been a center for the last couple of weeks,” Groy said. “I’ve been in this position; instead of going in and having to know three positions, I’m going in knowing I’m just center. I’m just preparing for that.”Lying behind Konz on Wisconsin’s depth chart for most of the season, Groy has witnessed a lineman widely perceived to be one of the nation’s best centers. Konz is on the watch list for the Rimington Trophy, given annually to the nation’s top center, and he very well could be a high NFL draft pick if he chooses to leave UW after this season.“He’s just very aware of the game and the defense he’s going against,” Groy said of Konz. “He’s a really athletic guy, and his knowledge of the game is really something that I admire and I’d like to follow.”The first step in doing so comes in this week’s preparation, as Groy said that Konz, Frederick and several other linemen have put in extra film sessions to prepare for Illinois. Konz admitted to peppering Groy relentlessly over how to handle whatever Illinois might throw at him, from run blocking to zone schemes and safety blitzes. When Groy didn’t hesitate on any answers, Konz knew he had found the key to prepping his substitute.“The biggest thing was comfort. At this point, for me, there’s telling him every single in and out of what I’ve learned. It’s not going to sink in, and I know that. You’ve really got to go through some experiences, you’ve go to go through some losses and personal hard times in the game, on the field, to be able to pick up some of these,” he said. “But as far as him feeling comfortable – because I know he can play as good as anybody in the Big Ten if he’s feeling comfortable – just him knowing it in his own mind is the key to this week.”
But that’s just where the trouble for Jerry’s boys started. Dallas’ team plane was deemed “not viable to fly” following the game, so the team was stranded in Philly for hours waiting to get home after the loss.

Instead, the Cowboys’ hopes at a second consecutive division crown hangs in the balance with Week 17 games the deciding factor. Should the Eagles beat the Giants, the division is wrapped up for Philly. (Good luck with rooting for an upset).

Need to apply audio and effect changes to multiple audio tracks — all at the same time? No problem. Follow these steps to create a submix in Adobe Premiere Pro.Image via ShutterstockA submix is an audio track that combines audio signals/tracks and routes them to your master track. Submixes can be mono, stereo, or 5.1 surround. They come in handy when you want to apply the same audio or effect settings to multiple audio tracks at the same time. Here’s a quick video tutorial that covers the three-step process of creating a simple submix in Adobe Premiere Pro.Now that you’ve watched the video, here’s a step-by-step guide.Step 1: Create a New Audio Submix TrackRight/control click in the track header and select Add Audio Submix Track. If you take a look at your submix track in the Audio Track Mixer panel, you’ll notice a few differences.First, the submix track background is a shade darker than other audio tracks. You’ll also notice the lack of a record button. Submix tracks can’t contain clips, so you can’t record to them. Therefore, they don’t contain any recording or device input options or clip editing properties.Step 2: Assign Track OutputsIn the mixer panel, just above the pan dial, you’ll see the Track Output/Assignment dropdown menu. This is where you can assign your audio tracks to your submix. When you assign a track to a submix, the output signal contains all properties specified for that track, including automation, effects, pan/balance, solo/mute, and fader settings.Step 3: Apply Audio and Effect Changes to SubmixTo add an effect, click on the Show/Hide Effects and Sends triangle at the top of the Audio Track Mixer panel. For this example, I added a Pitch Shifter effect to my submix track. Submixes go a bit easier on your computer’s processor by allowing you to apply one instance of an effect instead of multiple instances.If you’re looking for additional Premiere Pro tips, we’ve got you covered!
