Heavy downpour that lasted hours on Monday evening has caused floods that inundated at least 9,285 houses in six districts of Bandung regency, West Java, forcing hundreds of people to flee their homes and causing at least one fatality.National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) spokesperson Agus Wibowo said the floodwater in the southern part of Bandung ranged from 10 centimeters to 2.8 meters in depth on Tuesday afternoon, with Dayeuhkolot district, Bojong Soang district and Bale Endah district as the most affected regions.Floods hit three locations in Dayeuhkolot district, namely Dayeuhkolot village, Citeureup village and Pasawahan subdistrict, forcing 111 residents to flee their homes. “As many as 4,092 houses, eight houses of prayer and two schools have been swamped by the flood,” Agus Wibowo said in a written statement on Tuesday.He added that 4,439 houses and 26 schools in Bale Endah district were inundated with floodwaters ranging from 20 centimeters to 2.9 meters depth. Around 20,518 people living in Andir subdistrict and Bale Endah subdistrict were impacted by the flood.In Bojong Soang district, floodwaters ranging from 40 centimeters to 1.9 meters in depth swamped 45 houses in Bojong Soang village, Bojongsari village and Tegaluar village, affecting a total of 2,812 residents. “The flood affected a total of 56,251 people and forced at least 315 people to evacuate, including 24 toddlers and 28 elderly,” Agus said.A 70-year-old resident of Bojong Soang village died after slipping in floodwater when he tried to flee his residence, the West Java Disaster Mitigation Agency (BPBD) said as reported by Antara.BPBD Bandung operational management officer Iyus Setiwawan reported that the floodwater had cut off access to seven roads connecting some districts.”The BPBD is currently coordinating with the search and rescue team, district officials and volunteers to carry out an assessment and evacuation in the hardest-hit locations,” he said.

In his first season with the first team, Greenwood has scored 15 goals despite making just 18 starts in all competitions.United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who earned the tag “baby-faced assassin” for his finishing prowess as a player at Old Trafford, rates the club’s latest prodigy as “one of the best — if not the best — finisher I have worked with and seen”.Greenwood’s second against Bournemouth was particularly eye-catching as he spun onto his supposedly weaker right foot before crashing the ball with such speed that Aaron Ramsdale could not keep it out despite getting a hand to it.”It’s freakish,” said former United striker Andy Cole. “He can go either side and you know he’s going to produce that kind of quality.” ‘More like a man’Revitalized by the January signing of Bruno Fernandes, United were in fine form before football’s three-month coronavirus shutdown. But far from seeing their momentum slowed, the manner in which Solskjaer’s men have returned has raised hopes they could even mount a title challenge to Liverpool and Manchester City next season.Greenwood did not let the lockdown period go to waste as he reportedly gained three kilograms of muscle mass.”Mason is looking more and more like a man,” said Solskjaer prior to the season’s restart.It has shown on the field as the teenager has started three consecutive Premier League games for the first time, during which United have scored 11 goals.Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial’s goals against Bournemouth took them to the 20-goal mark in the season for the first time and with an average of just 21, United’s front three have the potential to bring back the glory days of the Ferguson era in the coming years.”He’s always eager to learn and he reminds me, mentality-wise, of how I was when I was younger,” said Rashford. “If you keep learning, there’s no limit to what you can become.”United’s immediate future is focused on securing a return to Champions League football, with a trip to relegation-threatened Aston Villa next up on Thursday.The swagger and speed with which United have played in the past three games has come, significantly, in the only three matches Fernandes and Pogba have started together.Pogba seemed destined to leave Old Trafford for the second time in his career prior to the COVID-19 outbreak. Now, with finances tighter across European football, it is unlikely interest from Real Madrid will materialize this summer.For the first time in his second spell at United, Pogba’s role in the midfield suits his skill-set, with Nemanja Matic providing the platform for the French World Cup winner and Fernandes to share the creative burden.”We know that they [Rashford, Martial and Greenwood] can score goals, we know that they’ve got pace, energy, they’re youthful, they’ll learn, they’ll improve,” added Solskjaer.”With the players that we have that can provide the passes with Paul and Bruno, the creativity that we’ve got in the team now is exciting.” Manchester United have spent more than £1 billion ($1.2 billion) on new players over the past nine years but the Red Devils latest revival owes much to a home-grown superstar in 18-year-old academy graduate Mason Greenwood.The young forward was the star of the show as United scored five goals in the Premier League at Old Trafford for the first time since 2011 against Bournemouth at the weekend.Greenwood smashed high into the Bournemouth net, first with his left foot and then with his right as free-flowing United won 5-2 in a style rarely seen since Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.

The donation renames the USC Department of Real Estate Development, which opened last year, the USC Price Wilbur H. Smith III Department of Real Estate Development. This is the school’s first naming gift of a department. The money will primarily be used to recruit top faculty members to the department, provide financial aid for students studying real estate and summer funding for faculty research while also expanding professional development opportunities. . “He has done some pretty visionary projects,” Department of Real Estate Development chair Richard Green said. “He does a wide variety of things in the real estate business. He’s always been generous about sharing what he knows with our students, because he comes back and talks to our students on a regular basis.” Smith graduated fromPrice with a master’s degree in real estate development in 1999, and in 2003 founded Greenlaw Partners, a real estate firm based in Southern California. Since then, Smith has remained involved within the USC and Price community by delivering guest lectures at the school and acting as a mentor to graduate students. He is also a member of the executive committee of the USC Lusk Center for Real Estate, the Price Board of Councilors and the Price School Real Estate Advisory Board. “[We want to] particularly help those [students], for whom USC would be a very expensive place … to help students come here, because one thing that’s very important for us is for people who traditionally have not gotten into the real estate business to get into that business,” Green said. Wil Smith earned his master’s degree in real estate development at the USC Price School of Public Policy. His gift will go towards scholarships and faculty research, and establishes the USC Price Wilbur H. Smith III Department of Real Estate Development. (Daily Trojan file photo) Wil Smith, a USC alumnus and real estate executive, has donated $10 million to the Sol Price School of Public Policy to fund scholarships, research opportunities and other resources, the University announced Wednesday. According to Green, the department serves approximately 650 undergraduate and graduate students with majors or minors in real estate development. It also supports a group of researchers studying topics relating to real estate development. The donation money will be put to use beginning next academic year.
I have never been buying nothing about you fam. You a joke. And after our private convo full of back pedaling you will never have my respect 🤡 https://t.co/do0yxFgUju— Damian Lillard (@Dame_Lillard) August 10, 2020Lillard has been riding high on an individual level of late as he tries to drag Portland into the playoffs. He scored 51 points in a 124-121 win over the 76ers on Sunday, three days after dropping 45 in a win over the Nuggets.Entering Monday, the Trail Blazers were a half-game out of the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference. They’ll finish the season with games against the Mavericks and Nets, currently listed as 7-seeds in the Western and Eastern conferences, respectively.Portland is 4-2 during the NBA’s restart in Orlando. On Monday, Lillard blasted professional TV nonsense merchant Skip Bayless after the Fox Sports 1 host said he didn’t believe in the Trail Blazers point guard. Lillard alluded to a private conversation he had with Bayless in which Bayless acted far less tough than he does as a commentator.MORE: How the Pacers stole T.J. Warren from Suns”I’m still not buying “Dame Time” and apparently the Clippers aren’t either,” Bayless tweeted early on Monday.Lillard’s response: Damian Lillard doesn’t hold back when people disrespect him. The question usually isn’t whether he’ll respond, but how.Sometimes it’s via diss track, like the one he directed at Kings big man Marvin Bagley Jr. Other times it’s a mere social media shot.
