Nuggets beat Wizards to keep pace in playoff chase

first_imgWizards: Seven 3-pointers in the third quarter were as many or more than the Wizards made in 21 different full games this season. … G John Wall, who has been out almost two months after left knee injury, is doing some basketball activities and could practice as soon as Saturday. There’s no definitive timeframe for Wall’s return.PARKLAND STUDENTS VISITSome students, parents and teachers from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School stopped by the Wizards’ shootaround Friday morning and met with Brooks, who called it an honor to speak with them. They’re in Washington to march for gun control after 17 people were killed at the school last month.“They’re here for a purpose,” Brooks said. “They’ve been through a lot. They’ve been through things that they shouldn’t have to go through.”Malone said hello to a student after the game, telling him to “stay strong.”CHENIER’S 45 RETIREDAt halftime, Phil Chenier became the fifth player in Wizards/Bullets history to have his number retired as his 45 was unveiled in the rafters along with a 33 and microphone to commemorate his time as a broadcaster. Chenier is the third player from the 1978 NBA championship team to have his number retired, joining Wes Unseld and Elvin Hayes, though back surgery prevented him from taking part in that playoff run.“It really was exciting for me to see that 45 up there and to see my name,” Chenier said afterward. “It looked good up there.”In a video message shown in the third quarter, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar asked: “The only question is, what took them so long?”UP NEXT View comments Scarlett Johansson, Sterling K.

Forward Paul Millsap gutted through 25 minutes despite flu-like symptoms, Devin Harris played more than 28 off the bench and they got a victory that keeps them thinking the playoffs are in reach.“This team still believes,” Malone said. “There’s a lot of basketball still to be played.

Health Ministry Should Handle Ebola Bodies

first_imgOne of the most critical aspects of any epidemic is how its casualties—the remains of those who die—are disposed of. Such disposals, no matter the cause of death, are considered throughout the world as a medical and scientific, NOT a political function.  This is where the pathologist comes in.  A pathologist is a medical doctor who has specialized in the interpretation and diagnosis of the changes caused by disease in tissues and body fluids. Medical doctors have a joke about pathologists: “They know everything, but can do nothing.”  The reason is, by the time the patient reaches the pathologist, it is no longer a patient but a corpse, about which the pathologist can do nothing. He/she  cannot bring the corpse back to life.The only function left for the pathologist is to determine how, why and when the person died. The medical doctor who treated the patient or announced him or her dead, determines whether or not the corpse can have a normal burial.  If the person died of tuberculosis or some other highly contagious disease, the doctor will recommend immediate interment and the family may not have the body, for fear of spreading the disease.That is why the Liberian government has decided that all Ebola patients cannot be returned to the families, but are to be immediately disposed of.  This is NOT a political function, but a medical and scientific one, which a Ministry of Internal Affairs has little to do with. Logistics, such as transportation to convey the corpses to the burial or cremation site, and materials for spraying, etc., the MIA may be able to help with.  But exactly where the highly contagious corpses should be buried is a decision for the medical doctor, NOT the MIA.So it is with Ebola.  When someone dies of Ebola, the government immediately steps in, receives the corpse, sprays it with the appropriate detergent, places it into a well layered body bag, then buries it in an appropriate place where it can contaminate no one, or nothing else—not even the terrain.Over the past 48 hours there have been two very disturbing developments in Liberia, both occurring on Sunday, August 3.  First, the Minister of Health and Social Welfare (MOH) told the Daily Observer that he was too “overwhelmed” with other Ebola issues and had asked President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to authorize the Minister of Internal Affairs to bury the bodies of Ebola victims.What is disturbing about Dr. Walter Gwenigale’s request is that the handling of Ebola fatalities has been deemed a political matter.  We submit that is NOT!  The question of where, when and how a corpse of Ebola or any other high contagious disease should be buried is a medical and scientific matter, NOT a political one, most especially when the issue at stake is a highly contagious disease such as TB or Ebola.        So no wonder the Minister of Internal Affairs did not understand where and how Ebola bodies handed over to him for disposal should buried.  Accordingly, the MIA attendants, no medical or scientific people, buried many of the Ebola bodies in the wetlands, swamps and riverbanks of Johnsonville!  The Johnsonville people were alarmed! And they protested, and rightly so, only to be mercilessly beaten by police.  A woman interviewed by our reporter, C.Y. Kwanue, told him, “This is the only place we get our drinking water.  We are poor and have no money to buy mineral water.”We call on President Sirleaf to revoke her decision to place the MIA in charge of Ebola burials and place that responsibility for this delicate and dangerous assignment where it belongs, with the professionally trained personnel of the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare.The idea of cremating Ebola  bodies is a good one and we are pleased that GOL has decided to take up the offer of the Indian community to use their facilities for this purpose.But the GOL should deal   expeditiously with two other urgent matters: first, find vehicles to transport Ebola bodies from around the country to the cremation and appropriate burial sites. Second, the MOH and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) should locate ALL inappropriate sites, such as the Johnsonville wetlands, swamps and river banks, and relocate the bodies buried there to more appropriate venues, where they can be buried six feet deep or cremated, and those areas effectively disinfected and chlorinated.  This will hopefully restore the people’s source of drinking water and make their environment safer and more livable.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘Bad Road Hampering Plank Industry’

first_img-Head of plank dealers’ association By Chris F. Pewu (Intern)The chair of the Light Brother Wood Incorporated in Paynesville, which is an association of plank dealers, has said that due to the bad road networks in the country, the local plank industry has suffered a serious setback in transporting the sawed timber to the market.Charles C. Harris said it is about time that the government sees reason to ensure that the members of the association have access to feeder roads so that their products are brought to the market.Another difficulty the association is faced with, according to Mr. Harris, is the US$60 cents the Forestry Development Authority (FDA) imposed on each sawed plank being transported to the market.Harris said that the US$60 cents fee levied by the FDA has worsened the industry’s challenges to the extent that the members are contemplating on leaving most of the already sawed planks in the bush and finding something else to do as a  means of survival.Mr. Harris appealed to the government to come to the aide of the Light Brother Association by reconditioning  the destroyed feeder roads where the planks are being sawed and also to prevail on the FDA to reduce the US$60 cents levied on each of the sawed planks.The secretary-general, Albert S. Simgbah, commended the government through the FDA management for allowing them as collaborating partners of the wood sawyers’ association to make their contribution to the nation’s building process.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) – Advertisement – Mr. Harris: “We want the gov’t to address the bad road condition and the high FDA tax”last_img read more

Panel to celebrate fundraising success

VALENCIA – After three years of doling out scholarship money for deserving Latino youths, the Hispanic Business Committee of Santa Clarita’s Chamber of Commerce wants to celebrate the community’s support of its efforts and those who have helped carry its message. The committee will host a reception Thursday afternoon for its chairwoman, Dora Zavala, to announce the fruits of fundraising efforts, which surpassed the goal. “We want everyone to enjoy the success we’ve had in these short years,” Zavala said Monday. She said the growth in scholarship funds is a testament to Santa Clarita’s focus on education, and she is glad to help bring Latino youths and their supporters together in the valley. “There is still a need to connect Hispanic youth with the tolls and the systems and programs in place that can let them advance in their education beyond high school.” Last year five local high schools were given $750 each to disburse to Latino students who fit the scholarship criteria. This year the committee will expand to six schools. The committee also is planning to honor key supporters Gloria Mercado-Fortine, a member of the Hart Union High School District board; Jim Ventress, executive director of the local Boys & Girls Club; and Assemblyman Cameron Smyth, R-Santa Clarita.

Guardiola repeats call for player protection as City forge ahead

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola gestures from the touchline during his side’s 3-0 win over West Bromwich Albion © AFP / Lindsey PARNABYMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Feb 1 – Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola urged officials to better protect his star players after a 3-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday.The result left his side with a commanding 15-point lead at the top of the Premier League but Guardiola was unhappy with a series of challenges, the worst of which saw Matt Phillips booked for a high-flying lunge at young City substitute Brahim Diaz. The incident followed City’s FA Cup victory at Cardiff on Sunday where Leroy Sane suffered an ankle ligament injury which will sideline him for up to seven weeks — prompting Guardiola’s call for his players’ protection.However, he was in a more conciliatory mood on Wednesday, although he did have an animated discussion with fourth official Kevin Friend on the final whistle.“I’ve said what I said so we spoke with Kevin, the fourth official,” Guardiola told reporters. “They have an opinion, I have another one, they’re the bosses, I accept that. I have to accept it.”The Spaniard added: “Today we were lucky, three or four days ago we were unlucky with Leroy.“The image speaks for itself. I could repeat what I said after the last game but it’s not necessary. The chat was good, that’s all.”Guardiola was also unhappy with a late lunge by James McClean on Kevin De Bruyne, which earned the West Brom man a yellow card, and an Allan Nyom foul on Kyle Walker.– ‘Poor challenge’ –But Albion manager Alan Pardew believed Guardiola’s weekend comments had provoked City supporters into trying to put pressure on referee Bobby Madley in a bid to get him to hand out harsher treatment to the visitors than might otherwise have been the case.Pardew also pointed out that City were not faultless, highlighting an early incident in which home midfielder Fernandinho appeared to stamp on Grzegorz Krychowiak, who had to be replaced later in the first half.“He’s a winger and in desperate situations wingers can make poor challenges. It was a poor challenge, make no mistake about that,” said Pardew of Phillips’s challenge.“But I think Fernandinho made a similar one in the middle of the pitch. I’m not sure if the referee saw it.“I thought Pep’s comments at the weekend affected the crowd. Every challenge, they were saying ‘you’re not protecting our players, referee!’.“There were a few songs sung about him but I actually thought he (Madley) had a decent game.”Officiating aside, it was a routine victory for Guardiola’s team, with goals from Fernandinho, De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero sealing victory.– ‘Amazing joy’ –Their efforts also took City’s goal tally for the season to 101, an astonishing mark before the end of January, although Guardiola was conscious that his team missed a host of chances — Raheem Sterling in particular — and the manager warned they were chances which better teams would have punished his side for wasting.“When you ask me what he (Sterling) can improve – that (finishing)!” said Guardiola, whose side remains in the hunt for an unprecedented quadruple of Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League titles in the one season.“When he is able to improve that he will be a top-class player, so I’m happy because today what I feel is this is one of the best performances we played this season.“To play better than we played today is difficult but in knockout games, or cup finals, or Arsenal in the (League Cup) final, we need to be more clinical in front of goal or we will be in trouble.“We create an amazing amount of joy — to watch these guys play, the joy they have to play in that way — but we miss a lot of chances and against the top teams it will be a problem if we are not able to improve.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Palmdale, Lockheed Martin still in talks over site

first_img james.skeen@dailynews (661) 267-5743160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! PALMDALE – City officials hope to complete negotiations this month with Lockheed Martin for a site near Sierra Highway and Avenue M for a proposed power plant. Palmdale and Lockheed Martin officials are in discussions regarding using part of a 640-acre site for the power plant. The property is owned by Lockheed Martin Properties, the corporation’s real estate subsidiary, and had been earmarked for development as a possible business park. “We hope to complete the negotiation by the end of June,” said Assistant City Manager Steve Williams. The Lockheed site is attractive because it’s close to the aerospace companies at Air Force Plant 42 and Lockheed Martin’s Plant 10, which the city envisions as the major users of the power from the plant. The site also has a single owner, simplifying site acquisition. The site was one of four being considered by Palmdale as the site of the power plant. City officials have declined to identify the other three sites, citing sensitivity of land negotiations. City officials are working with a consultant, Inland Energy Inc., to secure permits to build a 500-megawatt power plant that they say would provide the city with reliable, more-affordable energy. It is expected to take about two years and cost as much as $5.5 million to secure those permits. The city plans to seek permits for a plant that would operate two 165-megawatt gas-fired turbines and a steam turbine capable of generating 170 megawatts. The plant would be capable of providing energy for a city of 400,000 people. It is estimated that constructing such a plant would cost about $300 million. In the two years of going through the permitting process, city analysts could study what arrangement for using the permit would best serve Palmdale’s interests. Possibilities include forming the city’s own municipal utility, such as those operating in Los Angeles, Glendale and Burbank; assigning the permit to a company; or selling the permit outright. last_img read more

Five bargain goalkeepers for your Dream Team World Cup XI

first_img6 6 5. Essam El Hadary (Egypt) – £1mIf his compatriot gets back to full fitness quickly, the Pharaohs could find themselves reaching the knockout phase in Russia, making the 45-year-old shot-stopper an absolute steal, especially if they keep a clean sheet or two. Egypt only conceded four goals in six matches in their final qualifying group, so it’s worth a punt if you’re happy to take a risk. 6 2. Kasper Schmeichel (Denmark) – £2.5mIn Group C with France, Peru, and Australia, the Danes should be able to make it out of the group and a hardy defence which only conceded eight in qualifying may be the key to their progression to the knockout stages. Leicester City goalkeeper Schmeichel might just outfox a few strikers in Russia. 6 6 DREAM TEAM WORLD CUP – SIGN UP FOR THIS SUMMER’S BRILLIANT GAME HERE DREAM TEAM WORLD CUP – SIGN UP HERE FOR A CHANCE OF WINNING SOME OF THE £175K PRIZEPOT4. Jordan Pickford (England) – £3mHaving been handed the no.1 jersey, the Everton glovesman seems set to start for the Three Lions. His delivery up field out of his hands will put defences on the back foot if England go direct and he might even net an assist if he gets the opportunity to link with Raheem Sterling or Jamie Vardy. Gareth Southgate will be hoping for clean sheets against Tunisia and Panama and this will mean big points for Pickford. 3. Fernando Muslera (Uruguay) – £2.5mGroup A sees the South Americans encounter Egypt, Russia, and Saudi Arabia and they will be disappointed if they struggle to make it into the next round. A young and vibrant midfielder behind Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez should keep opponents occupied at the other end of the pitch allowing Muslera to rack up the points for clean sheets.
