Thunder hold on to beat Spurs and even series 1-1

first_imgSAN ANTONIO (AP): The Oklahoma City Thunder nearly gave the game away in a wild final sequence that referees acknowledge should have been blown dead before it started. All that matters to the Thunder is that they’re all even with the San Antonio Spurs. Russell Westbrook had 29 points and 10 assists, and the Thunder held on to beat San Antonio 98-97 on Monday night, evening the series at one game apiece when the Spurs failed to score in the final seconds. Kevin Durant added 28 points as the Thunder handed the Spurs just their second home loss of the season, rebounding from a 32-point beating in Game One. With San Antonio trailing 98-97 with 13.5 seconds remaining and Oklahoma City out of time outs, Thunder guard Dion Waiters elbowed Manu Ginobili to get the space needed to inbound the ball. “On the floor, we did not see a foul on the play,” referee Ken Mauer told a pool reporter. “However, upon review, we realised, and we agree that we should have had an offensive foul on the play. It’s a play that we have never seen before, ever, but we feel we should have had an offensive foul on Waiters.” “No, I’m in the game, man, I don’t really know what’s really going on,” Waiters said. “My whole mindset is get the ball inbounds and hopefully we get a foul once the ball the ball gets inbounds, but it was a crazy sequence the last 13 seconds. So we pulled it out, that’s all I care about.” Waiters inbounded to Durant, who was immediately stripped by Danny Green. Patty Mills missed an open three-pointer, LaMarcus Aldridge lost the ball after grabbing the airball and Kawhi Leonard was unable to gather the ball before the buzzer sounded. “I don’t know what it is, to tell you the truth, what type of violation it is,” Ginobili said of Waiters’ elbow. “It’s got to be something. But again, it’s not that play that decided anything. We got the steal, we got the shot, we got an offensive rebound.” Game Three is Friday at Oklahoma City.last_img read more

Local, Regional Women’s Groups Condemn District #15 Violence

first_imgExpress worry over enmity in LiberiaThe leadership of the Association of Female Lawyers of Liberia (AFELL) says it is deeply concerned about the deepening crisis among citizens, which the association said are nowadays giving rise to a deteriorating unstable ease in the country.The latest of which was the eruption of violence in Logan Town, Montserrado County between rivals of the just ended District #15 elections on Saturday, August 17, 2019.“This emerging trend of election-related violence is very worrisome as it has the propensity to derail our hard-earned peace,” AFELL said in a release.The statement added, “The incident in Logan Town, which led to personal injuries and property damage is regrettable. AFELL accordingly, condemns in the strongest terms, this wanton and unruly behavior of some citizens. Of particular concern is the impact these kinds of violence have on the mental, economic and social well-being of women and children.”“Therefore, we demand from authorities at the Ministry of Justice to launch an urgent and prompt investigation into the causes of the violence, and also call on the authorities of the National Elections Commission (NEC) to intervene in this matter by conducting an investigation, and hold those actors/parties accountable under the elections law. We say this because electoral violence is one of the greatest obstacles to democratic consolidation. It does not only affect the credibility of the electoral system, but also destroys the democratic system, and the rule of law,” the organization further added.The group reminded Liberians that elections are about the competitions of ideas, and not a show of force. AFELL, therefore, calls upon all those concerned to exercise restraint, and allow the electoral process, as well as the rule of law to run its course.“We are always reminded of our immediate past, and as a post conflict country, Liberia should avoid the looming triggers of conflict such as electoral violence. Finally, without being prejudicial, AFELL strongly condemns and will not tolerate any acts of violence, harassment and intimidation of any female candidate in elections now or hereafter. We call on all parties to exhibit a greater sense of maturity, respect and tolerance towards each other and we intend to remain seized of this matter to its finality,” the release said.Meanwhile, another women’s group, known as the Network of Peace and Security Women in ECOWAS Countries (NOPSWECO) have added their voice to the sweeping condemnations of the Montserrado County District #15 electoral violence.NOPSWECO is a conglomeration of West African women organizations including Young Women Christian Association (YWCA), Organization for Women and Children (ORWOCH); Kids Educational Engagement Project (KEEP); Community Healthcare Initiative (CHI); Girls for Change (GFC); Quidiyou INC.; Paramount Young Women Initiative (PAYOWI); and Women & Children Initiative INC. (WACEP).“We are disheartened by the escalation of violence leading to the attack on one of the candidates in the District 15 rerun elections. We condemn in the strongest terms the attack on Ms. Telia Urey and the occupants of the black vehicle,” the group of women organizations said. “A video obtained from the scene of the attack shows riot police standing by whilst rioters violently attacked a black vehicle, allegedly belonging to Ms. Telia Urey, and putting the occupants of the vehicle at risk.NOPSWECO recalls that, following a ruling in the District #15 electoral dispute by the NEC, the Chairman of the CDC stated in a major press conference that the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) will not participate in any rerun.“We call on the leaders of the ruling CDC and the opposition collaborating parties to take advantage of the law and the appeal process to express any dissatisfaction in the electoral process.“We once again call on those in positions of power to refrain from making statements that have the potential to incite chaos. We additionally call on the Liberia National Police and the Ministry of Justice to investigate the police officers who stood idly by while this assault took place. We request a full investigation into yesterday‘s incident and the report made public.“We wish to remind our President that 2020 is just around the corner and it is these types of gender-based violence that limit women’s full participation in the governance of their country. We continue to watch with concern as the peaceful situation deteriorates and will hold all involved accountable. Notwithstanding, the purpose of this communication is to prevent further violence– particularly violence against a women politicians.NOPSWECO also called on the Weah administration “to provide increased security presence in District #15 in the days immediately preceding NEC’s recently mandated rerun. The six precincts that fall under this mandate should be the focus of this increased security presence, the group suggests.“In addition, this increased presence should cover the days immediately following the rerun until the day after NEC announces a winner. All security personnel assigned to this detail must be professional in the execution of their duties. They must be seasoned, disciplined and impartial security professionals who take their mandate seriously.“We call on the President to ensure the safety of Ms. Urey in light of this recent provocation. We call on the President to restrain all duty bearers from making inciting comments, posting on Facebook, moderating radio shows that have the propensity to derail the peace. Liberia is all we have and democracy is strong when women and men participate together in an environment free of violence, threats of violence, fear, and intimidation,” NOPSWECO said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Holders Germany dumped out of World Cup

first_img0Shares0000Germany players react after a missed chance during their last Group F match against South Korea. PHOTO/FIFAKazan, Russia, Jun 27-  Germany crashed out of the World Cup on Wednesday after a stoppage-time VAR-assisted goal from Younggwon Kim and a late second by Son Heungmin earned South Korea a famous 2-0 win.The Germans needed to beat Korea by two clear goals in their final group F match at Kazan stadium to advance to the last 16. But Joachim Loew’s men wasted a series of chances in a tense match that saw a pale version of the world champions become the fourth holders of the title this century to be sent packing at the first hurdle.Germany’s team of superstars could only look on in shock in the final minutes of the match as US referee Mark Geiger called for the video assistant referee to intervene after the unmarked Kim had bundled his shot past Germany ‘keeper Manuel Neuer from a corner early in stoppage time.The goal was awarded because Toni Kroos’ touch had played him onside, and minutes later Germany were 2-0 down after Neuer ran up the pitch in a desperate attempt to get a goal.A long punt upfield saw Tottenham forward Son chase a clearance to fire into an empty net.-First timeIt means Germany, the four-time champions who had competed in the past 16 editions of the World Cup, fail to make it past the first hurdle of the tournament since 1938.Germany coach Joachim Loew caused a surprise by leaving midfield attacking stalwart Thomas Mueller on the bench for the first time since 2012 after his underwhelming displays against Mexico and Sweden.But by the end of a frustrating opening half, Loew was left desperately studying his options.Germany suffered the first of several scares after South Korea won a free kick on the quarter hour when Sami Khedira’s boot connected with the head of Jung Wooyoung.From 30 yards out, it should have been fodder for World Cup-winning goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, but after fumbling Jung’s dipping drive Neuer scrambled desperately to clear as Son raced to pounce.Germany spurned a series of chances soon afterwards.Marco Reus, who hit a crucial leveller in the 2-1 win over Sweden, saw his drive deflected and Mesut Ozil saw his effort deflected off a Korean boot and out for a corner, after which goalkeeper Hyeonwoo Jo smothered desperately when Goretzka’s header found Hummels trying to pounce on the loose ball.-Mario Gomez inGermany resumed with more urgency after the interval, but despite edging closer when Loew introduced Mario Gomez just before the hour the big Stuttgart striker headed straight at Jo from Kimmich’s cross.Striker Timo Werner then met another Kimmich ball from the left byeline with a right-foot volley that skewed agonisingly wide of Jo’s upright.Germany urgency was not matched by their normal efficiency and soon legs started to tire.Loew played his final card when he introduced Mueller for Leon Goretzka.But the late changes failed to spark Germany into life as Korea hung on for a famous win that, unfortunately for the impressive Asians, saw them bow out after Sweden beat Mexico 3-0.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Southampton flop wants OUT in January, confirms agent

first_img Gaston Ramirez Southampton flop Gaston Ramirez wants a return to Bologna, according to the player’s agent.The Uruguayan left the Italian club for St Mary’s in 2012 after Saints splashed out a record £12m fee to sign him.However, the 24-year-old has failed to make a significant impact at the club and Saints are expected to sell him in January rather than let him go for nothing next summer, when his contract expires.Bologna have been heavily linked with a move and now Ramirez’s agent, Pablo Betancourt, has revealed that would be his client’s preferred destination.“Ramirez has suffered from numerous physical problems in England and has also had to give up the national team and Copa America,” Betancourt told Radio Nettuno.“He wants to return to Italy, he’s constantly thinking about it, and when he talks about Italy he speaks of Bologna.“At Christmas, Gaston could be released and [Bologna sporting director Pantaleo] Corvino likes the player.“In Italy, Bologna is his preferred destination. It isn’t a matter of money, but the fact of being able to become an important player in a place he loves.” 1last_img read more

Dogs’ rookie trio veterans of success

first_img The threesome spent the past four seasons together at the University of Denver, where they helped lead the Pioneers to back-to-back NCAA championships the last two years. Now, they are in Long Beach, looking for a spot on the opening-night roster and, if things work out just right, possibly another title. While many people feel that three’s a crowd, Ice Dogs rookies Jeff Drummond, Jonathan Foster and Kevin Ulanski think that three is something else, like a charm. Call them the “Three Amigos,” the “Three Musketeers,” or as some teammates have dubbed the trio, “Denver,” they don’t seem to care. They are just happy to be in Long Beach going through training camp with the hopes of playing together for yet another season. “It’s not like we planned it,” said Ulanski, a 5-foot-11, 190-pound winger who tallied 33 goals and 77 assists in 149 career games with Denver. The “D-ers’ weren’t recruited as one by Ice Dogs coach Malcolm Cameron, who also tried to land Denver’s Matt Laatsch. It’s just the way it worked out. “We were all in the same boat,” Ulanski said. “We weren’t going to the AHL and we didn’t know much about pro hockey. But Malcolm was one of the first coaches to contact all three of us.” Cameron recruited each player separately. There was no package deal, no buy-two-get-one-free kind of thing. In fact, it wasn’t until they compared notes that they knew that the Ice Dogs were interested in each of them. They could have gone separate ways, but, obviously, chose not to. Foster was the first to sign, then the other two fell in line shortly thereafter. center_img “We talked about which coaches we were talking to and looked to see where each guy fit in best,” said Drummond, a 5-7, 170-pound winger who spent most of last year on a line with Ulanski and finished his college career with 44 goals and 43 assists. “Malcolm told us how he was building a championship team and we wanted to be part of that.” There were some other tangible things that brought them here. The jump from college hockey to the pro game can be tough, and they figured that being together could help ease some of that. “It makes the transition into pro hockey a little easier if you know some of the guys,” said Foster, a 5-10, 185-pound winger who posted 44 goals and 34 assists in college. Clearly, they get along well a lot like brothers, with plenty of ribbing to go around. They live in the same apartment complex and ride to and from the rink together. But for the first time, they are truly competing against each other. Cameron needs to make a handful of roster cuts to get down to 20 players by early next week. As rookies, they might be more vulnerable to being released than more experienced players. But what if one or just two make it? They understand how it works. “We don’t talk about that at all,” Ulanski said. “Whatever happens, happens. We support each other and we all expect to make the team.” Added Foster: “We are going out there and playing our games and hoping it all works out.” Each player brings something different to the team. Ulanski is “an inspirational type of player, the Energizer Bunny,” Cameron said. “He causes havoc and creates offense because of his forecheck. He is very well-rounded.” Foster “is a gifted shooter; he’s got a great shot,” Cameron said. “He needs to manufacture some goals and be a presence on special teams and offer some good defense as well.” And as for Drummond, “there is no hiding it that he is a small guy, a skill guy,” Cameron said. “He has to utilize his speed and skill and try to be offensive. That’s his forte.” So far, Cameron has liked what he has seen in all three, and he certainly likes their intangibles, having won NCAA titles. “We are lucky all three chose to come here,” he said. “I like good rookies and I like guys who know how to win. That’s what I’m looking for in a player.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

None the less now that I’m there I intend to represent the region to the best of my ability.“Growing up in a periphery county such as Donegal I feel I have a very unique perspective on the council on issues such as mental health. youth unemployment and relations with Northern Ireland which this youth council tries to integrate.” Youth Councils have been created at U.S. Embassies and Consulates worldwide to encourage a two-way dialogue with emerging young leaders to help find solutions to shared challenges.The U.S. Department of State’s Office of Global Youth Issues seeks to work through U.S. Missions and Youth Councils around the world to help empower and support young people as they transform their communities in positive ways with their ideas, energy, and talent.The Irish Youth Council was launched by the then Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and the US Embassy in Dublin in December 2012 and is the 50th of its kind around the world DONEGAL MAN APPOINTED TO US EMBASSY IN IRELAND YOUTH COUNCIL was last modified: May 6th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Cllr Jim LynchdonegalFionan LynchSpunOutUS Embassylast_img read more

Champion Groves sends warning to Smith

first_imgPaul Smith has been told he will make a huge mistake if he attempts to trade punches with George Groves in their Bonfire Night showdown at Wembley Arena.Hammersmith’s Groves defends his British and Commonwealth super-middleweight titles – and his unbeaten professional record – against the tough Liverpudlian a week on Saturday.Smith, 29, was the British champion before losing to James DeGale, who was narrowly outpointed by Groves in their May grudge match.“I’m going to break him down and then knock him out.”Despite being outclassed by DeGale and stopped in nine rounds, Smith has been tipped by many to cause Groves problems because of his aggressive style.But Groves told West London Sport: “He’ll fight in a style where he’ll throw shots but end up taking shots too – and if he does that it’ll be a mistake, because the shots I’m going to be landing he won’t be able to absorb for 12 rounds.“Those punches will have a cumulative effect. I’m going to break him down and then knock him out.”Smith has bounced back strongly from the DeGale defeat, knocking out Paul Samuels and Hungarian Jozsef Matolcsi in the first round, improving his record to 31-2.He says he has what it takes to inflict the first defeat of Groves’ career and put himself in the frame for a world title shot.“I feel he is an overrated fighter who had a one-off performance against DeGale,” Smith declared.A win would move Groves a step closer to a world title shot“DeGale is an awkward fighter to face. When you get in the ring he surprises you with the shots he throws. Groves had the advantage having sparred with him in the past – there was no shock factor.“His win against DeGale does not give me any nightmares. I know I have the style to beat him. He leaves himself open.”But Groves countered: “I think he’s saying that to use it as motivation for himself because he knows he’s in for a tough night.“He also knows that after losing his title last year, he’s not going to get too many opportunities to get back to where he wants to be.“For that reason it’ll be a tough fight and he’ll be up for it, but I know what I need to do.”last_img read more
