I have directed the Department of Labor & Industry to immediately begin plans to engage with these workers about their futures, and a Rapid Response team is in the process of being deployed. They are skilled workers who are in-demand in the economy. While I understand the operator is working to offer internal positions to these workers, we will not spare our resources to provide assistance to those who will be impacted.“I still believe it is essential to continue this important conversation about preserving and growing Pennsylvania’s carbon-free energy footprint. I remain hopeful that a consensus on a path forward can be reached in the coming weeks.”
Bournemouth vs. Crystal Palace Venue: Vitality Stadium Kick off: 7:45PMPremier League action after coronavirus concludes with Bournemouth and Crystal Palace face off at the Vitality Stadium tonight. Eddie Howe’s side went into lockdown in the relegation zone, but they are level on points with 16th-placed West Ham United and 17th-placed Watford after 29 games of the season.Eddie Howe can justifiably point to a number of injuries to key players this season, but there is no getting away from the fact that the 2019-20 campaign has been the Cherries’ worst since winning promotion to the top flight.Bournemouth have their lowest points tally at this stage of a Premier League campaign, but it is the statistics behind that which give the best idea of why Howe’s proven formula has struggled to work as much this term.So far in 2019-20 Bournemouth are averaging their lowest average possession (44.3%), lowest passing accuracy (75.9%), fewest shots on target per game (3.4) and most shots on target faced per game (5.3) figures from any of their previous five Premier League campaigns.Simply put, they are not seeing enough of the ball and when they do have it they are struggling to both keep hold of it and create chances with it, while shipping more chances when the opposition is in possession too. The break came at a good time for Bournemouth, allowing a number of their aforementioned injury concerns to recover while also stopping the rot of a four-game winless run from which they took only one point.Bournemouth’s poor form stretches further back than that, though.They have taken a league-low eight points from their last 12 Premier League games, losing eight of those since beating Chelsea in December.The positive news heading into today’s match is that all eight of those points have come at home, where Bournemouth are unbeaten in their last three top-flight outings, and in theory the lack of home support would affect Bournemouth the least of any Premier League team given that they have by far the lowest stadium capacity.Howe will know that their home form is likely to form the foundation of any survival push, but also that their away form needs to significantly improve as well if they are to steer clear of the drop. Another trend the Cherries will need to improve on is their defensive record.They have conceded in each of their last 12 outings – the longest current run in the division – and have kept a league-low four clean sheets this season.On that front, Crystal Palace appear to be the ideal opposition for them to return against, given that the Eagles have scored just 26 times in their 29 games this season – only Newcastle United and Norwich City have scored fewer. Indeed, Palace have not netted more than twice in any of their top-flight games this term, last doing so in a 5-3 win over Saturday’s opponents on the final day of last season.A lack of goals at one end is less of a problem if it is matched by a lack of goals at the other, though, and Palace went into lockdown on a run of three consecutive clean sheets in three consecutive 1-0 wins.RelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U EPL: Gunners gun for West Ham scalp The Eagles have never before won four top-flight games in a row without conceding and so could make a slice of club history this weekend, while they last won four Premier League games in a row almost two years ago.The flurry of points lifted Palace comfortably away from danger and they need only one more point to reach the magic 40-point mark, although their Premier League status for next season is effectively secured already.Roy Hodgson may well have loftier ambitions for his side than merely avoiding relegation too – victory today could lift Palace as high as eighth, above Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal, and not entirely out of contention for a European spot.Bournemouth possible XI: Ramadale, A Smith, S Cook, Ake, Rico, King, Billing, Lerma, L Cook, Stanislas, C Wilson. Crystal Palace possible XI: Guaita, Ward, Sakho, Cahill, Van Aanholt, Kouyate, Milivojevic, McArthur, Ayew, Benteke, Zaha.Tags: AFC BournemouthCrystal PalacePremier LeagueWest Ham United
Press Association De Bromhead said: “That was a good performance and it was a confident young man’s ride as he was throwing him at fences. “He jumped so well, but every time he got in front the mare (Shesaportrait) came to him and it didn’t help him. “Dropping back to two miles might suit him more than stepping up and his options are the Kilbegnet Chase at Roscommon and maybe running at Listowel or here at the end of September in between.” De Bromhead and Burke enjoyed Plate glory with Shanahan’s Turn on Wednesday and Sizing Platinum was a 3-1 shot for his Ballybrit assignment in the same colours of Alan and Ann Potts. Ridden prominently from the outset, Sizing Platinum was strongly pressed by 9-1 favourite Rock The World running down the hill, but De Bromhead’s charge would not be denied, galloping on for a three-and-three-quarter-length verdict. The Galway Plate-winning combination of Henry de Bromhead and Jonathan Burke were on the mark again at Ballybrit as Sizing Platinum struck gold in the Guinness Harp Novice Chase.
