Riding Wade’s wave, Heat snap 5-game losing streak

first_imgMOST READ “I was telling Spo (coach Erik Spoelstra) after the game that I actually felt normal,” Wade said. “He said he felt a little weird seeing me on the bench to start the game, but I actually felt normal. Once the game starts, it becomes a game and you get into it.”Johnson scored 19 points and Whiteside scored 12 points and had 16 rebounds. Bam Adebayo added 15 points and 10 rebounds, and Josh Richardson chipped in 16 points for Miami, which received the jolt Wade hoped with his arrival.“What a terrific day, the last 24 hours and then to culminate in a win like this after five straight losses, it’s what our organization needed for the moment,” Spoelstra said. “Obviously it was special to have Dwyane back in uniform, back on our side in front of the home fans. It felt exactly the way it should. It felt normal. It felt like home. It felt like family. It felt all the things you came to expect with Dwyane.”All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo scored a game-high 23 points to lead the Bucks, who lost for just the second time in nine games under interim head coach Joe Prunty.“It was a good atmosphere to play the game,” Prunty said. “You would expect that, something you would anticipate.”The Heat trailed 9-0 to start the game, with fans growing restless to see the return of the franchise’s favorite son. They chanted, “We want Wade!”ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES “The chants kind of started a little too early,” Wade laughed. “I was like no, not right now, not right now.”Wade entered midway through the first quarter and received a standing ovation from the crowd. He immediately made an impact throwing a lob to Whiteside for a dunk on his first possession as the fans roared.Minutes later, Wade took his first shot, a 3 from the right wing, and drilled it bringing the crowd to its feet.“This is kind of environment we’ve got to get used to playing in,” Wade said. “It was good. From start to finish the crowd was amazing. I definitely miss this crowd. I saw a lot of familiar faces.”There were other moments in the first half, too. A no-look alley-oop pass in transition to Johnson for a dunk and another lob to Whiteside for a dunk.“It was exciting,” Whiteside said. “He’s a Hall of Fame talent. His IQ is amazing so he knows when to look at the spots and knows when to throw it and make the right decisions.”Milwaukee was able to cut the deficit to 85-78 with 1:28 left.More “We want Wade” chants rang out in the closing minutes with Wade on the bench as the Bucks inched closer.

Smoke, fumes continue to plague residents

first_imgBurning Haags Bosch LandfillResidents of communities in close proximity to the Haags Bosch, Eccles, East Bank Demerara dumpsite,The Haags Bosch Landfill sitecontinue their cry of being subjected to health hazards caused by the smoke and fumes emanating from the landfill site in the area.According to residents of those areas on Tuesday, their complaints have “fallen onto deaf ears” and “no one seems to be concerned” about their wellbeing.“That girl have a baby over there and she can’t even open the door. Pon a morning, this whole place does get white, white and the smell, like it want suffocate you here,” said one peeved woman.Numerous persons living in the area expressed concern for the children, highlighting that many have succumbed to asthma attacks due to the thick cloud of smoke that would cloak the area on a regular basis.A woman who identified herself as “Singh” told Guyana Times “you cater the amount of people wa ga lil children in this area, them children wa going to school.”On Friday last, residents complained to this publication of many other complications they experience due to the smoke, highlighting that between the hours of 19:00h and 05:00h, the smoke is at its worst and does not clear up until 06:30h, adding that during the rainy weather the smoke would dissipate faster as compared to drier weather.Meanwhile, on Saturday, the Communities Ministry in a statement by Government Information Agency, said ‘spontaneously combusting’ fires continue to cause problems for residents of Eccles and nearby communities.Project Director of the Georgetown Solid Waste Management Programme, Gordon Gilkes, said they implemented a temporary operator at the landfill to monitor the smoke and fumes.Contrary to the belief that the smoke is as a result of wood being continuously burnt at that location, Gilkes said it is as a result of fire to a section of the building that used to store the wood.He explained that the fire which occurred earlier in the month at the landfill was controlled, except for instances when it rains, resulting in smoke and fumes.During the late period of last year, this issue had been raised by residents and even though complaints had been made to the Communities Ministry and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on numerous occasions, in each instance, they were told that the respective authorities were “looking into the matter.”last_img read more

Seized ‘booty’ to fund SARA operations

first_img…intelligence, financial institutions to turn over info on requestThe functions of the proposed controversial State Asset Recovery Agency (SARA) will be funded utilising monies seized as part of its operations and the proceeds of the sale of properties seized by the unit from persons believed to have acquired state property unlawfully.The legislation meant to legitimise the operations of the Ministry of the Presidency Department, has proposed that the SARA Director be empowered to utilise the money seized as part of its operations, including paying compensation to victims who suffer losses as a result of an unlawful conduct.According to the proposed legislation, there shall be established the recovery of state assets fund, for the purposes of receiving credits from civil recovery orders and payments made or debts recovered in relation to civil recovery orders made.It stipulates too that there shall be deposited into the fund 25 per cent of all monies derived from the enforcement of a recovery order; the proceeds of sale of property which is the subject of an order and any income derived from the investment of any amount standing to the credit of the fund.The Draft Bill – scheduled for a final round of consultation on August 11 – authorises the director of the outfit, a position currently held by vocal PPP/C critic, Professor Clive Thomas, to make payments out of the Recovery of State Assets Fund.The legislation essentially empowers the SARA director to release funds accrued from the ‘seized booty’ to facilitate the discharge of its functions.This includes paying for the commencement of actions for the enforcement of the Act. The SARA legislation also envisages empowering its director to authorise the release of monies from its fund to transfer recovered property to a foreign state or territory or share it in the event of applicable provisions under any treaty, agreement or arrangement.The SARA fund is also expected to fund training or capacity building as may be required for the unit, payment of fees to counsel, forensic experts, investigators, receivers and other professionals providing expertise and assistance.Any remaining amounts received by the director shall then be paid into the Consolidated Fund.Meanwhile, as it relates to the sharing of information relative to SARA investigations, the legislation provides for formal requests to be made by the director to a number of statutory bodies, including Bank of Guyana.Under the proposed legislation, the SARA director will be empowered to make official requests for information on persons under investigation from: the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP); the Commissioner of Police; the Director of the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU); the Head of the Serious Organized Crime Unit (SOCU); the Chairman of the Integrity Commission; the Commissioner-General (GRA); the Governor of the Bank of Guyana; the Head of the Central Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU); the Chairman of the Guyana Gold Board; the Chairman of the National Procurement and Tender Administration Board; and a Police officer not below the rank of an Inspector.The information to be shared as envisaged by the proposed law relating to any unlawful conduct, tax or financial impropriety of any person, or any other relevant information that may assist the SARA director in discharging his functions.last_img read more

UCLA freshmen are no match for Urena

first_imgAs UCLA watched Sean Urena hold the Bruins to one earned run in 7 1/3 innings, they saw exactly what they needed to be one of the nation’s elite college baseball teams. Winning with freshmen pitchers is pivotal for a UCLA lineup that starts two of them in its weekend rotation, but none of the young Bruins came close this weekend to matching the success of Cal State Fullerton’s freshman right-hander, Urena. UCLA freshman left-hander Gavin Brooks (1-1) – who wasn’t helped by first baseman Tim Stewart’s throw into center field on an attempted pickoff in the fifth inning – went 4 1/3 innings, surrendering four runs on four hits, three walks and two strikeouts. He was followed by freshman right-hander Garett Claypool, who allowed two runs on three hits in 2 1/3 innings. UCLA pitchers didn’t get any aid from an offense that stranded a combined 24 runners on base in the past two games. UCLA (7-7) loaded the bases with one out in the seventh but didn’t score, and left two more in scoring position in the eighth. Clark Hardman and Chris Jones led the Titans (9-4) with two hits each. heather.gripp@dailynews.com (818) 713-3607 Urena held No. 15 UCLA hitless until the fifth inning of the Titans’ 7-2 victory Sunday at Jackie Robinson Stadium in the deciding game of the three-game series. No. 10 Cal State Fullerton won the final two games of the series against freshmen starters, after UCLA senior Tyson Brummett pitched a complete-game victory in the opener. Urena improved to 2-0 with his longest outing of the season. “He was good,” Bruins coach John Savage said of Urena. “He competed, had two, three pitches for strikes, kept us off-balance, pitched out of some jams. I thought we had him on the ropes a couple of times, and the sign of a good pitcher is a guy that can pitch out of problem and he did that today.” center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Liverpool and West Ham target in no rush to leave Anderlecht for Premier League

first_img1 Lukasz Teodorczyk’s agent has insisted that it is not necessary for his client to leave Anderlecht in the summer, amid interest from Liverpool and West Ham.With 28 goals in all competitions this season, the Poland international has attracted the attention of clubs from across Europe with his performances in the Belgium top flight.Joining Anderlecht from Dynamo Kyiv on loan originally, Teodorczyk recently agreed a permanent switch but there are now suggestions that they are ready to sell him at the end of the season for around £12m.Liverpool and West Ham have been linked with a move for Teodorczyk but a dip in form during the Play-offs means interest in his services is said to be dwindling.Agent Marcin Kubacki, stressed that there is still demand for the player but feels it is too early to talk about his future beyond the summer.He also added that it is not absolutely necessary for his client to leave Anderlecht at the end of the season.“Many clubs are still aware of him, you know”, Kubacki told Het Nieuwsblad.“Let us wait and see how he finishes the Play-offs first.“Anyway, it is not absolutely necessary for him to leave Anderlecht this summer.” Teodorczyk has scored 28 goals in all competitions this season last_img read more

Mandzukic’s extra-time winner ends England’s World Cup campaign

first_imgHarry Kane then missed a wonderful chance to make it 2-0 but could not find the net at two times of trying. However, the top scorer of the World Cup was flagged offside.On 35 minutes, Jesse Lingard curled a shot just wide after some good work by Dele Alli as England went into half-time a goal to the good.Croatia improved after the game and got themselves on level terms when Perisic turned in Sime Vrsaljko’s searching cross midway through the second-half. Mandzukic’s strike broke England hearts 6 6 6 Trippier’s fifth-minute strike gave England a dream start But Mandzukic did get his goal when a hopeful Perisic header found its way to the frontman who made no mistake from six yards out to bring England’s World Cup campaign to an end, while Croatia will face France in the final on Sunday.STAR MANThe Croats were second best in the first-half but to their credit they came back strongly and after Perisic got their equaliser they never looked back.The winger got stronger as the game went on after getting his goal and caused England all sorts of problems. Although it was far from intentional, Perisic managed to supply the assist for Mandzukic’s winner as well. And the game was nearly turned on its head on 71 minutes when Perisic latched onto Stones’ poor clearance. The winger struck the post and Ante Rebic could only hit the rebound straight at Jordan Pickford.England were on the ropes and nearly fell behind with efforts from Mario Mandzukic and Perisic as the game went into extra-time.Stones nearly regained the Three Lions’ lead but his header was cleared off the line by Vrsaljko.At the other end, Pickford brilliantly denied Mandzukic a certain goal with a point-blank save after the striker got on the end of Perisic’s menacing cross from the left. England missed out on their first World Cup final since 1966 as they lost a gruelling semi-final match to Croatia 2-1 after extra-time.Mario Mandzukic’s assured finish ten minutes from the end of the game proved decisive after Ivan Perisic had cancelled out Kieran Trippier’s early free-kick.

MANDATORY ABUSE REPORTING MUST BE BACKED UP WITH NECESSARY RESOURCES – MCCONALOGUE

first_imgCharlie McConalogue TD has welcomed the publication of legislation to introduce mandatory reporting of allegations of child abuse and put the Children’s First Guidelines on statutory footing.The Fianna Fail spokesman for Children said this must be backed up with adequate resources to handle all cases of suspected abuse.Deputy McConalogue said, “I very much welcome the Government’s moves to legally require groups and individuals to report any concerns about child abuse to the authorities. However, child protection cannot be improved by legislation alone. “We must have the proper resources in place to deal thoroughly with the increase in reports of child abuse as a result of this new legislation,” he said.He added the terrible legacy of child abuse in this country was not just down to a lack of reporting, it was also because reports of abuse were not acted upon within the system.“There will not be a properly functioning child protection structure in this State if our system cannot handle each and every allegation that is reported to the authorities.“The social worker system in this country is already overburdened and under resourced. The Ryan Report recommended that 200 extra social worker posts be filled in 2010 and 60 extra posts in 2011 in order to ensure that existing gaps in our child protection services were filled and that each child in the care of the State would have an allocated social worker. He added the 200 posts were delivered by the previous Government on time, but this Government was unacceptably slow in recruiting the 60 posts which should have been in place by the end of 2011.Now, the latest HSE figures show that 31 social workers opted for early retirement this year, leaving more worrying gaps in the system as the Government refuses to give any commitment on replacing them, he said.“Mandatory reporting can only achieve its objective of protecting vulnerable children if there are enough trained workers to handle suspected abuse cases. When mandatory reporting was introduced in the Australian state of New South Wales, there was a six fold increase in the number of reports made.“We cannot end up in a situation where additional reports clog up an already overburdened social work system leaving vulnerable children at risk. Minister Fitzgerald must outline what extra resources she plans to deliver to ensure that every single allegation is thoroughly investigated and that every single suspected victim gets the care they need.” MANDATORY ABUSE REPORTING MUST BE BACKED UP WITH NECESSARY RESOURCES – MCCONALOGUE was last modified: April 25th, 2012 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)last_img read more
