The injury, which occurred with 12 seconds left in the game, all but squelched the jubilation from the Pelicans and their fans, who otherwise would have been celebrating not just a victory over the team with the NBA’s second-best record, but a fourth straight victory overall and seventh in eight games.“We were just figuring everything out. That’s the tough part,” Davis said. “We’ve got to keep going and just keep finding a way to win.“We’ve got enough guys in here who are professionals who are always ready when their number’s called, so we’ve got to make sure that we stay locked in.”Jrue Holiday scored 21 points and unconventionally sealed the victory by purposely missing a free throw with 1.8 seconds left, causing time to run out as players grappled for the rebound.“Right now, just praying everything’s OK,” Holiday said, adding that Cousins’ injury made the victory “bittersweet.”ADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Almazan vows to comeback stronger after finals heartbreak Michael Porter Jr. stays patient as playing time increases OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Nonito Donaire vs Naoya Inoue is BWAA 2019 Fight of the Year Anthony Davis scored 27 points, Cousins had 15 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists before seriously injuring his left Achilles tendon, and New Orleans survived a furious Houston rally for a 115-113 victory on Friday night.READ: Bittersweet as Cousins injures Achilles in Pelicans’ victory over RocketsFEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkA person familiar with the situation said an MRI confirmed an Achilles tear, ending Cousins’ season a little more than a week after he was voted an All-Star starter.The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Pelicans have not yet announced the imaging results.

Gail Teixeira prepared to renounce Canadian citizenship

first_img…following CJ’s ruling– ruling has implications for several Govt MPs – JagdeoFollowing Thursday’s landmark court ruling that a dual citizen cannot be a Member of Guyana’s Parliament, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has said that People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Chief Whip Gail Teixeira is prepared to renounce her Canadian citizenship.Jagdeo made the revelation during his weekly press conference on Friday at theBusiness Minister Dominic Gaskin was born in the UKparty’s Freedom House, Georgetown.According to the party’s General Secretary, the National Assembly is clear that a MP having dual citizenship will have implications and as such, he revealed Teixeira’s decision.“She is prepared to give up her Canadian citizenship, I spoke to members on myside about it…she said so voluntarily, I know that she has been thinking about it for a while and I didn’t call her to ask her if shePPP Chief Whip Gail Teixeirawill, I spoke with her and she said that,” Jagdeo revealed.Further, Jagdeo noted that the APNU/AFC coalition Government presently has several Ministers who also hold dual citizenship, including Minister of State Joseph Harmon and Vice President and Foreign Affairs Minister, Carl Greenidge.“Harmon now may no longer be a Minister by virtue of the Constitution, he has to resign because of the ruling and the same goes for Vice President and Minister of Foreign Affairs…this puts us in new territory. I have no doubt that the Government will try to appeal this, and CJ will uphold (the)Dr Rupert Roopnaraineruling…the ruling is clear, you cannot be a dual citizen in the National Assembly…that’s what our Constitutions says,” Jagdeo recognised.He noted, however, that the PPP/C would be holding an executive meeting where they will discuss a way forward.Justice George at the High Court on Thursday pronounced on the case filed by Government supporter, Compton Reid over the dual citizenship of former AFC Member of Parliament (MP) Charrandas Persaud, whose vote in support of the Opposition sponsored no-confidence motion on December 21, 2018, saw thetoppling of the coalition Government.In the case it brought to the Chief Justice,Minister of State Joseph Harmon is reportedly a dual citizen of the USGovernment had argued that Persaud’s dual citizenship status invalidated his vote in support of the no-confidence motion that brought the Government down.This argument also formed part of the opinions presented to Speaker of the National Assembly Dr Barton Scotland in the hopes that he would reverse the ruling – something the speaker ultimately refused to do.According to the CJ, by swearing allegiance to another state, a dual citizen is not qualified to be elected to serve in the National Assembly. She noted that whileForeign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge is a dual citizen of the UKformer coalition Member of Parliament, Charrandas Persaud should not have been a sitting parliamentarian because of his dual citizenship, at the time of his vote on the motion, he was a valid MP hence his vote was valid.Efforts by this publication to make contact with Harmon and Greenidge were unsuccessful.last_img read more

NBA ROUNDUP Patterson more than nickname

No Comments

first_imgClipper clippings The Clippers signed Dan Dickau to a one-year contract, and the veteran point guard joined the team for its evening practice. Dickau was acquired as the third-string point guard to provide stability behind Sam Cassell, who turns 38 next month, and Brevin Knight, who turns 32 next month. … Chris Kaman missed practice Tuesday with a sore lower back, and when asked when he could play again, said, “Hopefully in a couple days.” Around the league Knicks: Coach Isiah Thomas said his mind “never left basketball” throughout a three-week trial where he was found guilty of sexually harassing a former Knicks executive. Thomas said a day after the verdict that he wasn’t worried about losing his job and didn’t even talk with the team about the trial before practice. Spurs: Point guard Tony Parker will take a two-year hiatus from the French national team. Parker said on his Web site he needed time to rest and pledged to return to the team in time for the 2009 European championship in Poland. Jurisprudence: Allen Iverson has been sued for not showing up, this time to speak to his fans. The lawsuit filed in Douglas County District Court says the Denver Nuggets star didn’t come to a weekend of booked appearances in Omaha in early August, leaving fans at a youth rally and two clubs without their main attraction.

By Joe Stevens STAFF WRITER As the self-proclaimed “Kobe Stopper,” Ruben Patterson made a startling claim about the origin of his nickname on Wednesday. “Shawn Kemp really started that,” he said. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityBut with the power of the Internet and the perpetuating of that title in the media, those words probably will always be linked to the new Clipper, whether it was self-proclaimed or Kemp-proclaimed. “I’m sick of it now,” Patterson said of the nickname. “It’s worldwide. I hear it everywhere I travel. The first thing people say is Kobe Stopper. They don’t say Ruben Patterson. They say Kobe Stopper. But I tell everyone that me and Kobe are good friends now, and he actually tried to get me to the Lakers two years ago.” It’s not much of a stretch to say that Patterson welcomes challenges, such as defending Kobe Bryant, and it’s a big reason why the Clippers signed him this offseason. With Elton Brand out with a torn Achilles, the team figures the 6-foot-5 small forward could help fill the void left by Brand’s injury. Patterson, 32, averaged a career-high 14.7 points with the Milwaukee Bucks last season, and he did that even though he is known for his defense. “He’s coming off an excellent season, so in a sense, we were a little bit surprised he was available,” Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said. “But when Elton got hurt, the options that we looked at as far as what style do we do, how do we go out here and play? We were able to make moves and have a second unit that was a more aggressive up-tempo group.” last_img read more

Day of Dreamer on the Hill: Undocumented Parsi Ph.D. Student Meets Congress to Advocate for DREAM Act

No Comments

first_imgIndian American Boe Mendewala, an undocumented Ph.D. student studying physics at the University of California-Merced, travelled to Washington, DC Jan. 19 to urge members of Congress to pass a clean DREAM Act, permanently protecting 800,000 Dreamers from deportation.“I love science. It is such a beautiful way to understand the world. But I don’t know whether I will ever be able to pursue my dream of doing research in physics,” Mendewala, who has lived in the U.S. since the age of five, told India-West, explaining that her DACA status expires in April 2019 — just after her expected graduation date — which will leave her without a work permit, and no relief from deportation.“I went to DC to show Congress that this affects real lives, and is causing real damage,” she said, adding that she wants Congress to pass a DREAM Act which includes a path to citizenship, along with comprehensive immigration reform to fix a broken system.Read it at India West Related Itemslast_img read more

IPL spot-fixing: CSK and Gurunath Meiyappan may face wrath of Mudgal committee

No Comments
first_imgIt was on February 10 that the Mudgal committee -comprising Justice Mukul Mudgal, N. Nageswara Rao and Nilay Dutta -opened a Pandora’s Box by stating that former Chennai Super Kings team principal Gurunath Meiyappan’s involvement in betting during Indian Premier League matches was proved.And if sources close to the panel are to be believed, both Meiyappan and two-time Indian Premier League champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are in deep trouble. CSK could even be barred from competing in the next edition of the cash-rich league. It is believed that the sealed envelope that the committee submitted to the SC on Friday not only has complete details on the progress made so far, but also contains charges levied against Meiyappan and CSK.”After May 16, the panel has more powers and they could get deeply involved and carry out further inquiry, something that wasn’t possible in the earlier investigation. And they have worked overtime to get to the bottom of the whole mess. Meiyappan and CSK are definitely in trouble. The panel has mentioned the former’s wrongdoings in its report,” a source close to the panel told Mail Today.After being appointed for the first time on October 7, Mudgal had sounded a warning bell. He had said that the BCCI wouldn’t have been too keen on having him in charge of the investigation. And that was once again the case when the SC asked Mudgal and his new panel – consisting of Mudgal, Rao, Dutta, former IPS officer B.B. Mishra and Sourav Ganguly – to investigate the contents of the sealed envelope submitted by them after primary investigation. BCCI cried foul saying that the panel would be biased, but the apex court didn’t budge.advertisementSo if Mudgal stands by his word of the probe not being ‘eyewash’, the signs aren’t too auspicious for CSK and its former team principal.Panel files interim reportThe Justice Mukul Mudgal committee, conducting the probe into the IPL betting and spot-fixing scandal, on Friday filed its interim report in a sealed cover before the Supreme Court.The apex court is likely to go through the report on September 1 when the committee is also expected to plead for more time to complete the probe.The court had on May 16 given the task to conduct a probe against sidelined BCCI president N. Srinivasan and 12 other names in a sealed envelope that the Justice Mudgal panel had submitted, and asked it to file its report by the end of August.It had rejected BCCI’s proposal to conduct the probe through its own panel. The Mudgal committee had earlier investigated the scandal and submitted a report in which names of Srinivasan and 12 other cricket figures were mentioned.”We are of the considered opinion that the allegations against the 13 persons, including N Srinivasan, mentioned in the report submitted in the sealed cover should be investigated into by the Justice Mudgal Committee and the team of investigators because if a new probe committee is entrusted to inquire into the allegations, there is likelihood of the allegations being leaked to the public and` media and such leakage will damage the reputation of the 13 persons beyond repair,” the Bench had said.Besides Justice Mudgal, the panel has additional solicitor general L. Nageshwar Rao and advocate Nilay Dutta as members. A group of investigators headed by senior IPS officer B.B. Mishra assisted the Mudgal committee, which was given the power to probe, search and seize relevant documents and record evidence.- Mail Today BureauCricket Association of Bihar secretary Aditya Verma, also a petitioner in the case, has said every effort by BCCI’s sidelined president N. Srinivasan to delay the Board’s Annual General Meeting (AGM), expected to be held by September 30, will be thwarted.”It is very obvious that Srinivasan and a few members from his camp are trying their best to delay the AGM this year. But trust me, I will not let that happen. In the last 86 years, never have we seen the AGM being postponed and it shouldn’t happen this time,” Verma told Mail Today.He further said that he was waiting for his earlier application to be heard by the court in which he has questioned the decision of BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel and acting president Shivlal Yadav to propose Srinivasan’s name for the ICC chairman’s post.”They didn’t even bother to call a Special General Meeting before taking the call, and that was a clear violation of rules. I want the court to look into the matter,” Verma said.advertisement- By Baidurjo Bhoselast_img

Gareth Bale More Excited to Represent Wales Than Real Madrid

No Comments

first_imgGareth Bale has risked deepening the rift between himself and his club by declaring he prefers playing for Wales than for Real Madrid ahead of his country’s crucial Euro 2020 qualifier away to Azerbaijan on Saturday.Bale has not featured for Real since a 4-2 win over Granada on October 5 after injuring himself in Wales’ last game against Croatia, with coach Zinedine Zidane declaring last Friday that the forward was not fit enough to play for his club. “I definitely have a bit more excitement playing for Wales. With Wales, I’m speaking my own language and feeling more comfortable,” Bale told a news conference ahead of Saturday’s game in Baku.”I’ve been with most of the players, especially the older ones, since we were in the Under-17s. It’s like playing with your mates down the park on a Sunday.”But it still doesn’t change what I give on the pitch. I always give 100% wherever I am, and that’s what I always strive to do.”Bale has won four Champions League titles with Real, scoring crucial goals in two finals, but has long had an uneasy relationship with the club.Coach Zinedine Zidane said in the close season that he wanted to sell the former Tottenham Hotspur player, declaring: “If he leaves tomorrow then all the better”.Bale’s frequent injury problems have been a bone of contention, while he has also been criticised in the media for leaving matches he is not playing in before the end.Bale’s inclusion in the Wales squad despite his injury problems has led to fierce criticism among the Spanish media, with newspaper AS continuing to question the forward’s commitment to the 13-times European champions.”Maybe to them (the Spanish press) it doesn’t look great but it’s just a kind of coincidence that the national team comes around this week and I’ve returned to full training,” added Bale.”If I’m fit, no matter where I am, I’m going to try and play, whether it be for Wales or Madrid. For me it was a no-brainer: if I’m fit to play then I’ll give it my all.”Bale was one of Wales’ key players in their thrilling run to the semi-finals of Euro 2016 but his side are in danger of not qualifying for Euro 2020.They are fourth in Group E on eight points and will be out of contention in the group if they lose to Azerbaijan, although they could still qualify for the tournament through the playoffs.
