Federal negotiations: the MR states “two major points of convergence” between liberals and ecologists

On the other hand, the president of the MR denounces the institutional options of the N-VA.

Lhe president of the MR, Georges-Louis Bouchez, assured Sunday that the liberals could “collaborate” with the ecological family on a government program in order to form an “axis of modernity”, while denouncing the institutional options of the N- VA who wants, according to him, “to dismantle the State”.

“With the ecologists, we can agree strongly on questions of investment of the future, on another growth, based on new technologies, on technologies which preserve the planet. On this angle, we can collaborate. It is an axis of modernity. And that’s what I want, ”he said on the set of the private television channel RTL, of which he was a guest.

Mr. Bouchez also insisted on the “two major points of convergence” which emerge between the liberals and the Greens: “giving a future to this country” and “a look at another way of organizing the economy and society. “.

On the other hand, he denounced the institutional component of the N-VA’s proposals, which calls for new transfers of powers from the federal government to the federated entities. “I am perhaps and certainly the first opponent of the N-VA,” he said, describing the president of the nationalist party, Bart De Wever, as “brilliant but often excessive”.

“Because on the one hand we have people who want to divide the country and on the other, people who want to give Belgium a future, who want to unite individuals and have a state that is more efficient”, explained M Stopper.

“I will never accept an agreement which allows the end of Belgium or which makes this state even more ineffective or complicated”, added the president of the French-speaking liberals.

He also assured that the liberal family (MR and Open Vld) was “more united than ever” to “give a future to a united and efficient Belgium”, with a view to the 200th anniversary of the creation of the country, in 2030.

Mr. Bouchez also returned to the efforts underway for the formation of a new federal government, while a “Vivaldi” coalition, associating the socialists, the liberals, the ecologists and the CD&V seems to see the preference of the project manager. appointed by King Philippe, the president of the Open Vld, Egbert Lachaert.

He reaffirmed that the MR “has no exclusivity” and is ready to work “with all democratic parties” and that he wanted above all to talk about the substance and the “balance of the global project” of the future. government team. “It is necessary that the six or seven parties which make up the coalition can find something balanced”, underlined while referring to the refusal expressed on August 13 by the ecological and liberal parties to accept the proposals of the preformers Paul Magnette, the president of the PS, and Bart De Wever.

Mr. Bouchez criticized the two preformers for not having “changed by a comma” their note, which he claims to have had “only an oral presentation”, without providing a document.


The OMA coffee shops and the Presto restaurants that will be closed due to the crisis – Business – Economy

Mesofoods, which handles the brands OMA and Presto, takes the necessary steps to cope with the crisis, which, he estimates, may take more than 18 months.

Marlon Masis, CEO of the company, in dialogue with Briefcase, explained the strategies that range from reviving the Tacos & BBQ brand and creating a virtual platform for OMA in order to reach customers with a new offer to the closure of 30% of stores in this chain. The same will happen with 4% of Presto sites.

How have these months passed for OMA and Presto?
The restaurant industry is one of the worst hit after hospitality and tourism. I have been CEO of companies for more than a decade, and nothing resembles the situation that led us to this. In one of the brands we managed to bill 5%. And while it is true that you have to think about how to pass things, the truth is that it is like a tsunami, it just arrived and devastated.

(You may be interested in: Race to keep restaurant losses from reaching $ 7 billion)

OMA is one of the brands that were most affected. Presto also billed less than 15% of what it billed in a month. The stable and controlled business fell in a matter of a month and a half. What you had to think about was how to sustain an organization with this deterioration.

Was 5% of the reported turnover in OMA?
We are already at different levels. OMA is at 20% of normal billing and has practically 20% of the points of sale open. At the time, when the Government ordered to close everything, we did not have the capacity to sell. Of the 220 we have 40 in operation.

That is certainly helping us, but that does not mean that the organization is fine. Airports sell very well and are very profitable, but that business deteriorated for us.

Mesofoods CEO Marlon Masis says that following the forced adjustment, next year OMA will also deliver news on expansion.

And what happened to Presto?
It is one more street brand, it was not from markets as captive as OMA – which is a strength actually. You have to have the wisdom, the patience, the emotional intelligence so as not to lose your head in a situation that pressures us, that is distressing and stressful.

We also recommend: The bitter drink that Tostao, Juan Valdez and other coffee shops pass

Presto is currently billing 40% of the average, and we have 35% of the stores open, approximately 70 of the 180. Presto has been a very winning brand in this pandemic because it is one of the most important in home delivery in the country. We have points that bill more than one hundred percent compared to last year just for delivery. We have strengthened the image of entering homes with Presto.

What else have they done?
We are the owners of a brand called Tacos & BBQ. The company decided to close it at the end of 2018 and the beginning of 2019. We capitalized on the experience, together with the capacity in homes and we turned on a hidden kitchen model in 30 Presto points of sale, out of the 70 open points, in such a way that we have a digital brand with all the Presto experience. So this added a lot of value to us because in 50% of Presto points we shipped two brands. That happened two months ago.

Yes I am sorry to see the inflexibility of many local owners in the face of the situation that exists today

Has this experience in homes served OMA?

So far I’m going to start strong with the part of delivery of OMA because hardly someone is going to order a red wine and a cheese stick because surely the home is going to be more expensive.

From the consumer’s point of view it may be a product that does not add value. For this reason, in this reinvention, now we are going to launch some family combos with solutions such as a box of six croissants. And we are launching deep-frozen, pre-cooked products, ideal for all who join us in the kitchen. It is a fun product with which you hope to create a different experience.

Will you have your platform?

I believe that today the own channels are being strengthened and the platforms are weakening, and there is a fundamental reason: the concern for biosecurity is a collective feeling. So it is very important that the client feel safe. This perception of trust or mistrust opens a space for the generation of own channels. We are hiring a company specialized in the world in platform development. We hope to close a deal soon to have one of the best technologies.

In a second stage we hope to dispatch breakfasts and then solutions for lunch and dinner. That is the plan we have for OMA. We also have the advantage of selling coffee in supermarkets and it will also be offered.

How are you doing with the sale of roast and ground coffee?
In large areas our income has not deteriorated. In fact, in the last month and a half, OMA has increased its market share and we have displaced important brands due to the quality of our packaged coffee.

Have they made closing decisions?
After an evaluation exercise, at OMA we will close 30% of the 220 points of sale in total. While in Presto we estimate 4% of a total of 180. With these fewer points of sale, the company is becoming more profitable. If it were not like that, we would not be working on the relaunch of the brand, which will be next year.

Presto is billing today the
40% of the average, and we have the
35% of stores open, approximately 70 out of 180

Are the closures running?
Yes, and the criteria for closing have to do with what the sales capacity is, what the government’s decisions are, the legal framework and the financial sustainability of that point of sale in the next 18 or 20 months, by when we estimate that it will arrive. The normality.

After that time will they resume expansion?
Yes, the leaders of the organization are clear that the company must grow, so that next year OMA will also give news about expansion. Yes, I am sorry to see the inflexibility of many local owners in the current situation.

That closing measure, how many jobs does it commit?
We will have to make a reduction forced by the situation, to be clear that in the future we will be able to give those job opportunities.



Why does California have low COVID-19 numbers in the US drama? – Telemundo 52

LOS ANGELES – Early confinement and other prevention measures promoted by the state government have allowed California, with more than 40 million inhabitants and some 300 deaths from COVID-19, to become an example of how to deal with the coronavirus pandemic in United States.

So far, the nation’s largest metropolis, Los Angeles, with more than 10 million citizens, has recorded fewer than 6,000 cases and 132 deaths, far from New York City, which has 8 and a half million inhabitants. and it has confirmed some 130,000 infections and more than 4,000 deaths.

“California has been doing quite well in the COVID-19 pandemic, with a relatively low number of infected per 100,000 people and a low death rate,” said Professor Karin Michels, head of the Department of Epidemiology at the School of Public Health, University of California Los Angeles (UCLA).


California Governor Gavin Newsom was one of the first in the country to enact relatively strict confinement, allowing only “essential” activities such as going to the grocery store and pharmacy, and exercising respect for safety distances between people.

In contrast, eight states – Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, South Carolina, Utah, and Wyoming – have not mandated their residents to stay home.

“The governor issued ‘home security’ and ‘shelter’ orders relatively quickly. Universities like UCLA and other large employers closed even earlier and sent people to work, teach and study from home,” said Michels, who has extensive experience in disease prevention, public health and statistical methods.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, California schools may continue to be closed until the end of August.

Newsom also took the initiative to decree the closure of schools, which will remain closed until next year, as a preventive measure; in asking President Donald Trump to send a hospital ship to Los Angeles to support local hospitals before it reached a hypothetical peak in the number of cases, which has not yet occurred; and in closing the state’s beaches and parks.

Another point that seems to have helped so far in the exceptional case of California against COVID-19, according to experts, is the low population density of the state, which reduces the possibility of contagion and allows better compliance with the rules of social distancing.

 Despite having a large population, Californians do not live in
as dense as New Yorkers. Cities spread with
Few skyscrapers: Relative to other states, many more people in
 California lives in houses, not in apartment buildings or buildings
high, “summarizes Michels, who is based on data from a study of his


California has had a much lower per capita death rate than most of the nation’s largest states, with the exception of Texas.

“The state has a low average age and a high
density of healthcare facilities, which may have contributed to
 the low mortality rate, “explained Michels.

According to a recent study published in The Lancet, the mortality rate among those infected with 20 years of age is 0.03%, while for those 70 years of age it is 8.6%.

Cautious tone

 Californian authorities have projected alarming numbers in the
recent weeks, although so far those estimates have not been

Newsom himself foresaw two weeks ago that more than half the state’s population, or about 25 million people, would become infected, so he begged its residents to follow the guidelines to the letter.

For his part, the mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, did not hesitate to forecast that the city “would follow in the footsteps of New York” in number of cases, a catastrophic scenario that is still far away.

COVID-19 affects children differently than adults. This is what the doctors say in the following video.

The United States on Monday exceeded 10,000 deaths from coronavirus, with 10,335 and almost 350,000 infected, making it the third country with the most deaths after Italy and Spain, according to the count of the Center for Systems, Science and Engineering (CSSE) from Johns Hopkins University (Maryland).

The new data is known after this Sunday
President Donald Trump, during his usual daily press conference,
make sure “this will probably be the hardest week, between this
week and next, and there will be a lot of death. ”

The state of New York, the great epicenter of the pandemic in the United States, accumulates with these latest figures a total of 4,758 deaths and 130,689 confirmed cases of COVID-19, compared to just over 122,000 that it had a day earlier.


here is what is behind this curious phenomenon!

The Center-Ardenne Observatory of Grapfontaine (Neufchâteau) has received numerous messages since the end of March which reported strange observations. Many people, both in Belgium and in France, have overview of light points (video) moving quickly online and in numbers.

For those who would have witnessed such a phenomenon, do not panic, they are not extraterrestrials but Starlink micro-satellites, as Grapfontaine observatory coordinator Giles Robert explains. “The billionaire Elon Musk’s SpaceX company is currently sending hundreds of micro-satellites around the Earth. “

Other strange sightings have also been reported in recent weeks: Gilles Robert tells us more.


Who gets the most credit: Brady or Belichick? – NBC Boston

From 2001 to 2019, the New England Patriots have won the AFC East 17 times. The other two years ended in a tie in first place.

In that time frame, they went to 12 AFC championship games and nine Super bowls. Six have won.

Bill Belichick and Tom Brady have been together for the entire race and – thanks to the past two decades – are now recognized as the best coach and quarterback in NFL history respectively.

Trying to share credit for a race never seen before the NFL domination and perhaps the most incredible trait in the history of professional sport – to some extent – is missing the point.

Did the ancient Egyptians stand in front of the pyramids and discuss whether the architect or builders deserved more credit? Did Mrs Wright analyze which of her children – Wilbur or Orville – was primarily responsible for the invention, construction and flight of the first plane?

There is something to be said just to close and appreciate the realization, isn’t there? Yup.

And we will get there.

But right now, with the engines going down Route 1 to pack Tom Brady’s remaining stuff and take him out of Foxboro forever, the question hangs on everything. Which man was most responsible for creating the story we’ve seen written in the past two decades: Belichick or Brady?

Results may vary. In fact, I know they will. But here’s how I see it.

If it hadn’t been for Belichick, there would never have been the mini-dynasty that they became in the decade 2000-2009.

If it weren’t for Brady, the Patriots would never have become the Super Dynasty that they became from 2010 to 2019 when they blew up the 60s Packers, 70s Steelers, 80s Niners and 90s Cowboys to become the only franchise that has dominated two decades.

Bill gets the first decade

The moment Mo Lewis cut an artery in Drew Bledsoe’s chest in September 2001, he is touched as the history of the NFL has changed. It wasn’t. It will only speed up a trial that began when Robert Kraft decided to hire Belichick to succeed Pete Carroll in January 2000.

Belichick took a look at the team’s register and management and started fumigating and renewing. In the end – despite the heavy contract that the Patriots gave Bledsoe in January 2001 to help strengthen public confidence and private investment in building CMGI Field (possibly Gillette Stadium) – Belichick was wary of being tied to a quarterback that the coach was able to routinely undress whenever he trained against him.

Especially a quarterback who had to be paid as the top of the market, as Bledsoe and his agent David Dunn made clear.

Brady was not enlisted in the sixth round of the 2000 draft as Bledsoe’s successor, but in September it became clear to Belichick that he had something. And it became obvious during the 2001 offseason and the training camp that – although not better than Bledsoe in all – the child who made $ 298,000 was more mobile, more precise, more ready in his pocket and destined to be more suited to handling a Bledsoe game.

Mo Lewis accelerated the process and – with a painful stroke – made the transition relatively painless. But the credit goes to Belichick for seeing what he had, promoting it and having the decision to pull the trigger.

The fact that the Patriots went 14-5 under Brady after starting 5-13 under Bledsoe is persuasive evidence that Brady was the missing piece. But Belichick created the register, built the culture and hired the right people – from managers to coaches – to put the team in a position to succeed. It deserves more credit.

Brady may have helped them get where they did, but the Patriots were undoubtedly headed in the right direction and the fruits of Belichick’s designs were collected in 2003 and 2004.

Those Super Bowl wins – the first at the end of a season that started with the shooting down of lawyer Milloy in favor of Rodney Harrison; the second thanks largely to a dice throw on Corey Dillon – they were the victories for “culture”.

Disinterest imposed. All done for the greatest good of the team. Everything ego in your pocket. The most impressive aspect of the patriots was therefore their stamina and mental endurance. Brady was an important part. But so were Tedy Bruschi and Harrison, Matt Light, Richard Seymour, Mike Vrabel and so on.

Fifty-three very intelligent and capable players row together in the hold of the big ship while Belichick was over the bridge to trace a route. It was from 2001 to 2004.

The dips in 2005 and 2006 began the process that would have led Brady to become, largely on Belichick’s design, the engine.

The 2005 Patriots were hit by injuries – not a hindsight surprise when you consider the nine extra games played in the previous four seasons and the difficulty of staying on top. They started to see some friction to grow old – Troy Brown was 34 then – and the ongoing game was marked as well as their defense on the run. They went 10-6 and lost in the division round.

The following season, a protracted squabble over the contract led to the Deion Branch being swapped with Seattle shortly before the season began. Reche Caldwell led the team in receptions followed by Ben Watson, Troy Brown and Kevin Faulk. However, they were unable to advance to the Super Bowl, but lost on the road to the Colts.

That season, Brady got a toy he had never had in Randy Moss and a Troy Brown replica model named Wes Welker. The entire set of record sets went 16-0 and lost in the Super Bowl.

Which brings us to 2008. This is the season that many are aiming for when they say that it is Belichick’s genius that is most responsible for twenty-year success. The Patriots went 11-5 with Matt Cassel starting in quarterback. Hadn’t he been a beginner from high school, yet the patriots still went 11-5?

Cassel was exceptional, better than anyone could hope for. But it’s still a sharp drop from 16-0 to 11-5.

In 2009, the central defense core was expelled or withdrawn: Vrabel, Bruschi, Seymour and Harrison. Belichick complained to Brady on the sidelines during a defeat for the Saints that season that “I just can’t get these kids to play the way I want them. So frustrating.”

The season ended with an ignominious home defeat against the crows in the AFC division playoff round.

Brady gets the second decade

The patriots renewed in the off-season and, in my opinion, Brady was at the forefront of finding their places where they had no business at that stage of their reconstruction. In 2010, the Patriots went 14-2, they were seed no. 1 and Brady was the unanimous MVP.

The offense, moving away from the narrow final position, enlisted two – Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez – and their production would become historic in 2011 when the Patriots arrived at the Super Bowl and lost again to the Giants. Brady launched for 5,235 career yards with 39 touchdowns and 12 picks.

In the 2012 season, he launched 637 times, a career high and one of three times in four seasons that attempted more than 600 passes. With a defense that too often seemed to resist better teams, it was Brady and the offense to score and score and score a little more. They were the first, third, first and third in points marked from 2010 to 2013. Defensively in that period they were eighth, 15th, ninth and tenth.

Even in 2013, when Hernandez was jailed for murder, Gronkowski was grounded due to back surgery and then with an ACL, Brady still ran by hitting the ball with Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and – to a lesser extent – Kenbrell Thompkins, Aaron Dobson and Shane Vereen.

They won the Super Bowl in 2014, winning a shootout against the Ravens in the Divisional Round, 35-31, and then overcoming a 24-14 deficit against the Seahawks in the fourth quarter when Brady moved to a completely different level in the fourth quarter.

The previous April, Belichick had enlisted Brady’s aspiring successor, Jimmy Garoppolo, in the second round. Brady, perhaps remembering the shrug that Drew Bledsoe had encountered Brady’s arrival 14 years earlier, would not have fallen asleep on the move with the team that ran Garoppolo.

Brady went on to launch 69 touchdowns and 16 predictions in 2014 and 15. He lost four suspension games in 2016 – Garoppolo overcame six quarters of Brady’s relief before hurting himself and giving way to Jacoby Brissett – but he still threw 28 touchdowns and two interceptions before ending that season with a 43- record. by-62, 466 yards in the Super Bowl when the Patriots canceled out a deficit of 28-3. Brady did it at 39.

At 40 in the AFCCG, without Edelman, without an injured Gronkowski, Brady and Amendola joined together to push the Patriots beyond the Jaguars and in the Super Bowl against Philly where he would have launched for 505 yards.

So let’s tell here. From 2010 to 2017, the Patriots have reached seven consecutive AFC Championship Games and the year they didn’t, Brady was the unanimous MVP. He wrote the filming of the playoffs against Ravens and Seahawks in 2014, the Falcons in 2016, the Jaguars in 2017 and led the team to two Super Bowl wins.

In 2018, Edelman was exiting an ACL and was therefore suspended for the first four games. Gronk was injured for a large chunk of the year. Phillip Dorsett and Chris Hogan were the main gimmicks for a while until the team faced Josh Gordon. It’s still? The team went 11-5, Brady put them on his back in the fourth quarter and overtime in Kansas City in the AFCCG and then the Patriots defense checked against the Rams and delivered a Super Bowl to Brady – apart from the shot at Gronk which led to the game’s winning touchdown – he just had to play OK to win the team.

The final verdict

So, see what my answer to this debate is now. Bill gets a bigger share of the first three Lombards. Tom gets a higher share than the second three.

So many people over the years have speculated that Belichick wants to prove that he can win a championship without Brady. I don’t know if it’s true.

I think if Brady was gone, Belichick would appreciate the opportunity, but I never thought he would have wanted to get rid of what he thinks is a quarterback capable of giving him a title that the others couldn’t.

Maybe that’s why we’re here. Belichick doesn’t see Brady as special as he once was. Great? Sure. Are there other guys who can do things they can’t do now? Belichick seems to think so. Brady has apparently survived its usefulness here.

Bill will do what he has done to so many other players. Go ahead. But this is the life cycle of the NFL.

From what I’ve been told and what I’ve collected, Brady agrees. He hoped to be special and to be able to write a different ending here, but to realize he couldn’t shock him. For a legend, it is rather well established.

Playing for Bill Belichick will help keep a player that way. And maybe even for that, Belichick deserves a lot of credit. He allowed Tom Brady to become Tom Brady because he was eternally and exasperatedly Bill Belichick.

Every. Single. Year.


Anthony Davis leads the LeBron-Less Lakers for the seventh consecutive victory – NBC Los Angeles

With LeBron James put aside, Anthony Davis knew he had to do a little more – everyone had to do a little more to fix it.

Davis scored 23 points and six rebounds in three quarters and the Los Angeles Lakers won their seventh game in a row and the NBA 18 in a row on the road against the Western Conference, beating the Golden State Warriors 116-86 plagued by injuries 116-86 without King James.

It meant taking better care of the ball in the second half and bringing energy to both ends.

“LeBron, when he’s out, is taking a lot of the things we do, so it’s up to all of us to make sure we fill in those gaps, and I think we did it tonight,” Davis said.

Rajon Rondo started in James’s place and contributed 12 points and six assists, while Los Angeles turned him into a 40-17 third quarter defeat. James sat outside due to recurring pain in his problematic left groin.

Davis fired 6 by 13, made 10 of the 12 free throws and also had a couple of blocked and stolen shots for the Lakers, whose 12 bills in the first half allowed the Warriors to keep him close. Kyle Kuzma added 18 points from the bench.

Rookie Eric Paschall scored 23 points off the bench for his eleventh 20-point game and Jordan Poole had 16 in the Warriors’ eighth consecutive defeat both overall and at home in the new Chase Center. Poole limped with 5:44 remaining in the third after rolling his right ankle, then returned after registering it, but briefly left Golden State with eight players available, two of them with 10-day contracts.

Golden State guard Ky Bowman came down with 1:11 to play and was helped.

The return of the Golden State striker Draymond Green from an absence of two games with a bruise in his right pelvic area was short: he was sent off 5:45 before the interval in his second technician just 11 seconds from his first at 5:56 am.

Golden State also lost Andrew Wiggins, a late scratch with spasms in the upper back. The Warriors resisted early but were unable to stay with the Lakers as they did in Los Angeles’ 125-120 victory here on February 8.

And if it couldn’t get any worse for the home team, beloved super-sub Lakers Alex Caruso drew the late MVP delays as the arena emptied quickly.

This losing streak is taking place on Warriors.

“We have to win a game,” said coach Steve Kerr. “We need to win a game every now and then to feel better about things. We are in a bad stretch right now. It’s hard.”


James had already been banned on Wednesday and coach Frank Vogel said that after the game a decision on James’s status would come Saturday morning before a game in Memphis that night.

“I’m just dealing with a little pain. There are still two days to go, “said Vogel.

James, who lost 27 games last season while breastfeeding the tender groin that injured Christmas Day 2018 at the Golden State, scored 40 points in Tuesday’s home season against Zion Williamson and the pelicans.

Kerr can see James as an example of a superstar taking him to a new level after a full offseason given that the Lakers star had played in eight consecutive NBA finals before last year.

Golden State has reached five consecutive finals, but not this season – so players like Stephen Curry, Green and Klay Thompson can benefit from prolonged rest.

“Looking at LeBron, he looks refreshed, he seems recharged. The idea of ​​eight consecutive finals is crazy when you think of five here and what has been done and how our players have felt last year and the injuries they have hit, “said Kerr. “When everything is said and done, I think our kids should feel refreshed, refreshed and ready to go by next year’s training camp. I hope so. LeBron is also LeBron. It built differently than most people. “


Lakers: The Lakers have won their first three games with one left on April 7 in Los Angeles. This marks their first win in the season series against Golden State since they went 3-1 in the 2012-13 season and the first time the Lakers have won both games on the Warriors home floor since they swept all four started in 2011-12. … Los Angeles improved overall 18-1 from the Staples Center against the West, having lost its forerunner “road” on October 22 against the Clippers at the Staples Center. The Lakers have won their fourth consecutive road game to improve to 24-5 in the season.

Warriors: The Warriors used its 29th different lineup, most in one season from a franchise record 49 in 2009-10. … Golden State is planning an update on Saturday about Curry’s status, which has long targeted Sunday’s home game against the Magicians as a return date from a broken left hand – and if it does, it will have lost 56 games since when he hurt himself against Soli on 30 October. … The Warriors went down to 7-23 at home and 5-16 against the West. … Golden State had won 12 of their previous 14 home games against the Lakers. … The Warriors signed G Mychal Mulder with a 10 day contract.


Lakers: At Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday night looking for a 4-0 season before a quick turnaround to play Sunday in New Orleans. The Lakers are 8-0 this season when they play consecutive days on the road.

Warriors: to the Phoenix Suns on Saturday after losing their last in the desert, 112-106 on February 12. This marks the start of the team’s seventh back-to-back set this season.
