Kyle Higashioka's simple coronavirus strategy to restart MLB Yankees

Yankees catcher Kyle Higashioka has brought Post readers behind the scenes as he tries to stay ready for the 2020 season amid a coronavirus pandemic. As told to Ken Davidoff.

Hello for the last time from Oregon. I have been here for more than three months now, but now it’s time to get back to work. I leave Tuesday for New York, and I will be at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday to start summer training.

The last few days before the season became official, I knew that this was a difficult time, when something needed to happen, I was actually very nervous during those few days. I am glad that something is known. My agent at the Beverly Hills Sports Council deals with me a lot, giving me the latest news. I didn’t reach out to our team representative Zack Britton too much. I tried to give Britt a break. I think everyone texted him. He might be flooded with calls and texts. I do not want to worsen it.

I am optimistic that we have a season, and I think optimism certainly pays off. It relieves a lot of stress when you don’t constantly worry about negative results, even though it’s certainly possible. I always imagined if the worst-case scenario would occur, then we would cross the bridge when we got there. There’s no point in worrying about it all the time. I couldn’t be happier that we at least get a chance to start the season, and hopefully we will finish it to the end.

It’s more or less up to us to try to isolate ourselves by acting as straight as possible and trying to keep our distance from others. We have to be in a fairly controlled environment once we get to the field. Obviously far from the field, we must isolate ourselves. I think if we do our best work, hopefully we will be fine. On the road, I would just go from the hotel to the field and that’s it, and that would be the same thing in New York.

With all the new rules, it will definitely be different. I think a lot of it is in place for our safety and just to make everything work during this strange season. It is okay. I’m glad we got the chance to go back there and play.

This shutdown has given many people time to think, and of course I have more free time than I normally do this year. I think the only realization I was aiming for was, almost like I could not believe that something like this, a crazy year, had happened in my life. Even though for the last 100 years in the history of our country, I believe we have experienced many years that are just madness – but I think this is the first year of my life that this chaos will go down. Things like this have happened throughout history. People in the past must face it, and we will deal with it now.

For anyone who reads this, I really appreciate you following me and following what happened in my life during this whole process. I am quite disappointed that we cannot have fans in the stadium. It’s a kind of team heartbeat, both at home and on the road. That’s one of the best things about playing in New York, fans. I hope everyone can watch us safely on TV, and hopefully we will put a good product on the field and win other championships.

Every Portuguese wastes 183 kg of food a year, and this is "inconceivable".

President of the Portuguese Federation of Food Banks Against Hunger Isabelle Jonet considers food waste unacceptable and absurd, as every Portuguese wastes 183 kg of food a year.

As World Food Loss and Waste Awareness Day is celebrated, speaking at a conference on the subject in Lisbon, the official recalled statistics released by the National Statistical Institute and said the situation was “worse than expected.”

The data, official and published for the first time, refers to 2020 and shows that 1.89 million tons of food was wasted in Portugal this year, so each Portuguese wasted an average of 183.6 kilograms of food.

INE statistics show that families spend the most. The figures show that over 1.2 million tons of food was wasted by families this year, followed by catering with over 237 thousand tons, trade and distribution with 214 thousand tons, primary production with over 101 thousand tons and food . industry, about 61 thousand tons.

“We buy too much, we buy bad, we let it go bad. It is unacceptable that a third of what is produced ends up in the trash,” the official said, speaking at a debate organized by the United Movement Against Waste.

Ana Cristina Carrola of the Portuguese Environmental Protection Agency (APA), who also took part in the debate, stressed that the average amount of waste per year per inhabitant in the European Union is 173 kg, less than the 183 kg that is thrown away by the Portuguese.

“This is unthinkable in our day,” he lamented.
