Arsenal, Tottenham, AC Milan open Europa League with wins - New Haven Register

Gareth Bale had a quiet first start for Tottenham since returning to the London club, while Carlos Vinicius made a more impressive debut by setting up two goals in a 3-0 win over LASK in the Europa League on Thursday. North London rival Arsenal opened its fourth straight Europa League campaign with a 2-1 come-from-behind win at Rapid Vienna in an opening round of games affected by the coronavirus pandemic. On a good night for Premier League clubs, Leicester earned a comfortable 3-0 home win over Zorya Luhansk. AC Milan earned a 3-1 away win at Celtic, while Roma came from a goal down to win 2-1 at Young Boys - as did Granada to upset PSV Eindhoven away. Rangers' Kemar Roofe scored the goal of the night in a 2-0 victory at Standard Liege, dribbling his way through three opponents inside his own half and then launching a shot from the halfway line that caught the goalkeeper off guard and looped into the net. Dutch team AZ Alkmaar overcame a slew of coronavirus cases to upset Napoli 1-0. BALE IS BACK After coming on as a substitute against West Ham for his first appearance since returning to Tottenham, Bale played more than an hour against in the Group J match against Austria's LASK, and had a hand in Tottenham's second goal. The forward, who is on loan from Real Madrid, collected a pass from Erik Lamela in the 27th and sent a low cross into the area from the right that defender Andrés Andrade deflected into his own. Earlier, Lucas Moura finished off another free-flowing move to open the scoring after being set up by Vinicius. The Brazilian, who is on loan from Benfica, created several other chances before teeing up substitute Son Heung-­min to wrap up the win six minutes from time. Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho is looking to win the competition for a third time...

MATCHDAY: Ibra back for Milan; Bale could start for Spurs - Houston Chronicle

A look at what’s happening in the Europa League on Thursday: CELTIC VS. MILAN Zlatan Ibrahimović is back to his best for the Europa League match at Celtic after recovering from the coronavirus. Ibrahimović returned to training last week and scored two goals as AC Milan beat Inter Milan 2-1 in a Serie A derby on Saturday. Milan is the early leader of the Italian league after winning all four of its opening matches. However, it only reached the Europa League group stage after a nervy 9-8 penalty shootout win over Portuguese club Rio Ave, having netted a fortunate last-gasp equalizer in extra time. Celtic comes into the game on the back of a 2-0 loss to fierce Glasgow rival Rangers in the Scottish league. NAPOLI VS. AZ ALKMAAR Dutch soccer club AZ Alkmaar flew into Naples with 13 players sidelined with coronavirus infections. That includes eight new cases among players following an outbreak reported earlier. Most of those players do not have symptoms. AZ has named a squad of 19 other players for the match. Napoli will be full of confidence after beating high-scoring Atalanta 4-1 at the weekend. YOUNG BOYS VS. ROMA Roma and Edin Džeko come into the match at Young Boys in good form. Džeko scored his first two goals of the season on Sunday as Roma came from behind to beat Benevento 5-2. Roma won on its last trip to Switzerland, against Basel in 2010. However, Young Boys has won all three of their European encounters at home to Italian opposition — Udinese, Napoli and Juventus. TOTTENHAM VS. LASK After coming on as a substitute against West Ham for his first appearance since returning to Tottenham, Gareth Bale could get his first start in the match against LASK — the fourth-place team in Austria last season. It is the third time Mourinho is coaching in the...

Social justice as a foundation for democracy and health - The BMJ

Jennifer Prah Ruger uses the covid-19 pandemic to show the importance of country’s implementing a justice framework for health and equality The connection between democracy and health runs deep, and it is tempting to tie a country’s political institutions directly to its overall health. A country’s political structure, however, influences essentially every facet of society, including health, and thus interactive and interdependent effects work in multiple directions. Democracy is but one determinant of health. And even democratic societies produce different levels and distributions of health and access to healthcare. The type of political system—democratic or authoritarian, proportional or majoritarian, multiparty or single party, centralised or fragmented, presidential or parliamentary—affects whether government is working by and for the people. But other elements, including political values and public opinion; political leadership; political organisation, strategy, and tactics; corruption levels; financial influence; and interest group representation, are important too. Whether power is separated in a democracy and by how much affects the workings of executive, legislative, and judicial branches. Democratic principles, such as civil and political liberties, representation, universal suffrage, and free, regular, and fair elections produce competition for popular support among politicians ambitious to retain or win elected office. As such, democracy in theory supports health by focusing attention on social, economic, and healthcare inequalities.1 By contrast, unrepresentative government and suppressed public debate in theory produce lower political responsiveness and diminish incentives to allocate benefits to certain groups, such as vulnerable people, or universally. A lack of democratic institutions, particularly multiparty elections and a free press, arguably has negative health effects.1 Authoritarianism’s suppression of political competition and civil liberties can shut down mobilisation of citizens for more resources and for health, social, and economic security. Quantitative comparisons of authoritarian and democratic regimes in different countries are difficult to make. The covid-19 …
