In Dwyane Wade’s final game in San Antonio, Heat snap Spurs’ 9-game win streak

first_imgTom Brady most dominant player in AFC championship history Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title View comments The Spurs rallied from a 12-point deficit entering the fourth quarter to pull to 108-105 on Rudy Gay’s floater with 1:07 remaining, but a turnover by DeMar DeRozan and a pair of free throws by Kelly Olynk sealed the victory.“We had a shot in the fourth quarter, but for three quarters they whipped us physically and discipline-wise,” Popovich said. “They deserve the win for that reason.”The Spurs had six players in double figures, but only two starters. LaMarcus Aldridge scored 17 points and DeRozan added 16. Patty Mills and Marco Belinelli added 17 apiece.San Antonio held opponents to 101.3 points per game during its winning streak but Miami reached 100 with 9 minutes remaining.DeRozan was given a technical foul after screaming at an official for not calling a foul when he was stripped by James Johnson on the baseline with the Spurs trailing 103-98 with 4:12 to play.Wade picked up a technical 2 minutes later after berating an official for a non-call on his missed fadeaway over Mills. Aldridge’s free throw pared Miami’s lead to 106-103.Wade responded by banking in an off-balance, fadeaway, left-handed runner.“A shot I’ve never seen him practice or ever attempt,” Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said, still in disbelief, “I guess sometimes that’s what great players can do, just manufacture something out of absolutely nothing. He was bottled up, Aldridge just had him jammed and that just gave us the breathing room at the end.”Wade finished with 11 points, including a running 3-pointer from halfcourt that brought the crowd to its feet in celebration of one of the Spurs’ fiercest competitors.HALL OF FAME SWAG Rogue cops marked as Gamboa’s targets in his appointment as PNP chief Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade, right, and San Antonio Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan pose for photographers after exchanging jerseys following an NBA basketball game Wednesday, March 20, 2019, in San Antonio.

(AP Photo/Darren Abate)SAN ANTONIO — Dwyane Wade was upset, ecstatic, tenacious and gracious in his final battle with the San Antonio Spurs.It was the perfect ending to Wade’s fiery showdowns with San Antonio, albeit an unusual one with the fans serenading him with cheers as he walked off the AT&T Center court after one final win over the Spurs.ADVERTISEMENT Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption Eugenie Bouchard’s bid for Australian Open spot ends in qualifying Wade, who is retiring after 16 seasons, has been honored in his final game at visiting arenas. This one was special, though, given his history against the Spurs, coach Gregg Popovich and their vaunted Big Three of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili.Wade was key to the battles between Miami and San Antonio in the 2013 and 2014 NBA Finals. The Heat rallied from a six-point deficit in the final 20.3 seconds to force overtime and win Game 6 on their way to capturing the 2013 championship. San Antonio won the title the following season against Miami to avenge that defeat.The Spurs honored Wade before the game with a 1½-minute video, including their tussles in the NBA Finals. After the video played, Popovich presented Wade with a gift box that included signed jerseys from Duncan, Parker and Ginobili.“That’s dope,” Wade said. “I didn’t know it was going to be before the game. I like the music swag they had on it and the videos they put up. It was really cool. I’m so thankful and I’m so appreciative. I don’t expect those things to happen to me at all. I just came out and did my job every night and I’m thankful for the relationships that I have. I have a great one with Coach (Popovich) and I just appreciate what they did.”San Antonio also gifted Miami the first half, falling behind by as many as 17 points.ADVERTISEMENT Wade couldn’t wait to open the gift the Spurs gave him, which included signed jerseys from Duncan, Parker and Ginobili.“Legends,” Wade said. “Hall of Famer jerseys in those boxes with the Big Three here in San Antonio. Guys I have so much respect for with Duncan, Ginobili and Parker. I appreciate those jerseys.”Wade also exchanged jerseys with DeRozan at halfcourt following the game. The crowd serenaded him with “D-Wade” chants as he did a postgame interview and as he walked into the locker room.“It’s an honor,” DeRozan said of Wade’s gift. “It was an honor being able to play against him for 10 years of my career, especially me being in the East all those years.”TIP-INSHeat: Miami’s previous win at San Antonio was March 31, 2013, when Chris Bosh scored 23 points, including the game-winning 3-pointer, to stun the Spurs 88-86 as Wade and LeBron James sat out for rest. … Miami is 17-16 on the road after finishing 18-23 last season. … Justise Winslow missed the game with a bruised right thigh.Spurs: Mills played in his 521st game with the Spurs to move past Danny Green into the top 10 in franchise history for games played.

MRU Sets Target: Wants Zero Case in 60 Days

first_imgAn extraordinary Summit held recently in Conakry, Guinea of leaders of the three countries worst hit by Ebola, along with their Ivorian counterpart represented by its Foreign Minister, committed themselves to achieving “Zero Ebola Infection” within the next 60 days beginning last Sunday, February 15, 2015.This commitment, the three Mano River Union (MRU) leaders noted, cannot be achieved in isolation.  Therefore they have appealed to the International Community to provide all necessary support to achieve their objective of zero Ebola cases by mid-April 2015According to a Dispatch from Conakry, Guinea, the commitment was contained in a Declaration of MRU Heads of State and Government on the Eradication of Ebola and Post-Ebola Socio-Economic Recovery, during an Extraordinary Session to adopt common strategies to end the Ebola virus disease epidemic in the sub-region, and address the post-Ebola socio-economic development recovery needs.The Summit brought together host President Alpha Condé of Guinea, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President Ernest Bai Koroma of Sierra Leone, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Representative of President Alhassane Ouattara of Côte d’Ivoire, Mr. Charles Koffi Diby.The leaders approved the strategy for reaching and sustaining “Zero Ebola Infection” in the sub-region with special emphasis on infection prevention control, social mobilization, community engagement, surveillance, cross border collaboration, instituting robust and sustainable social protection programs, providing mental and psychosocial support and ensuring coordination.The MRU Heads of State and Government recognized that to get to and stay at zero will depend on their collective political will to provide the enabling environment to translate intervention strategies into action, the dispatch noted.They advocated that international partners should plan and manage their exits responsibly dictated by the epidemiology while ensuring that capacity is transferred adequately to national institutions; and achieve seamless flow of information amongst nations at all levels.Meanwhile, the MRU leaders have endorsed the Post-Ebola Socio-Economic Frameworks prepared by Ministers in order to mobilize required resources for implementation.  They acknowledged the emphasis on instituting sustainable healthcare delivery systems, reopening of educational institutions, revitalizing the agriculture sector, addressing the needs of women, children, youth, orphans, survivors and persons with disabilities.   MRU leaders equally sanctioned implementing the Mano River Union-African Development Bank Initiative on critical infrastructure needs and improving governance.They have directed their Ministers to harmonize and consolidate the regional and country specific documents, including the costs of intervention to be presented at the European Union Ebola Conference that is expected to take place in the Belgian Capital, Brussels on March 3. The Brussels conference is aimed at mobilizing support for the region. The MRU leaders also appointed President Sirleaf as their Spokesperson at the conference. The MRU leaders, also at the Summit, welcomed planned meetings by bilateral and multilateral partners and urged them to adopt the MRU and country specific strategies. They called upon them to go beyond ties and relationships in supporting the affected countries.They welcomed the World Bank’s proposal to establish a Post-Ebola Recovery Marshall Plan with dedicated resources and agreed that this is the best way forward.  They urged development partners to utilize country systems for disbursements and implementation of Post-Ebola Recovery activities. The MRU leaders called on the International Community to provide direct budget support and debt cancellation for the affected countries.They called on partners to renew their commitments to Mutual Accountability and ensure full disclosure of all resources committed to the fight against Ebola; as well as renew their commitments to the New Deal Principles and country-specific Mutual Accountability Frameworks as the main levers to guide post-Ebola recovery interventions.They agreed that in support of post-Ebola recovery, Member States will allocate a proportion of their public investment to local Small and Medium Scale Enterprises. They believe that this decision will improve the resilience of their economies by supporting national production and creating employment opportunities.The leaders expressed their deep condolences to the families of the victims across the three countries especially those healthcare personnel who were in the forefront of fighting the epidemic. They also expressed their concerns about the wellbeing of their populations and the risks associated with their development agendas.They appreciated the solidarity manifested by Côte d’Ivoire through ECOWAS Initiative in deploying healthcare workers to the affected Member States.The Heads of State and Government thanked all airline carriers that have maintained flights to the affected countries and particularly commended Member State Cote d’Ivoire for the early resumption of Air Côte d’Ivoire flights and called on other regional carriers to emulate this good example.  Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

4900 child abuse cases recorded in 2018

first_imgCCPA Director Ann GreeneThere has been a growing number of reported child abuse cases in Guyana and for last year, over 4900 such cases were recorded, an alarming number that is fuelled by neglect and other social ills.According to the Ministry of the Presidency, over 4900 child abuse matters were reported last year to the Child Care and Protection Agency (CCPA). From this number, 2400 were as a result of neglect. Up to January, 400 cases were reported with 122 being of a sexual nature.It further states, “According to the statistics, 60 per cent of child neglect occurs when a child is between the ages of 4-13 years old, while 83 per cent of child sexual abuse occurs when a child is between the ages of 8-18 years old”.But Director of the CCPA, Ann Greene is of the view that this number is far less than the actual statistics since abuse is a “hidden crime”.“Child abuse is a hidden crime and particularly, sexual abuse is behind closed doors and some of the victims, they literally do not have a voice to report abuse, meaning many children are being abused and they can’t report. So even if we do get a report, that’s the tip of the iceberg,” Greene was quoted as saying.Just a few days ago, ChildLink researcher Samantha Alleyne stated that she was very disturbed by the findings of a study that was conducted on child abuse.“National statistics compiled by Child Care and Protection Agency confirmed that abuse of children, both physical and sexual, starts from as young as zero to three (years old). The data indicates that the sexual abuse of girl children remains high in the country. The number of reported cases is as follows; 801 in 2018, 392 in 2017 and 616 in 2016. Similarly, cases reported for boy children were 179 in 2018, 442 in 2017 and 118 in 2016,” Alleyne told the gathering.She added that during her research, it was also found that some parents were reluctant to accept the abuse story their children had told them. In such a case, she said a parent even blamed her child for what happened, saying that the child wanted to separate her from her spouse.The interviews ran for one month with nine children and eight adults. However, she found that children between the ages of 14 to 18 and eight to 13 were more vulnerable to these attacks.last_img read more

Guyanese gunned down in NYC, brother critical

first_imgA West Bank Demerara (WBD), Region Three resident, who travelled to New York for his grandmother’s funeral was in the wee hours of Monday shot dead, while his brother is clinging to life after they were attacked by two men on 124th Street, South Richmond Hill, Queens, New York.Dead: Ricky KalisaranRicky Kalisaran, 31, of Lot 7 Klein Pouderoyen, WBD, was shot once to his back by one of the gun-toting bandits and left to die in front of a nightclub on 124th Street.His brother, Michael Kalisaran, 25, a resident of the US, was shot to his abdomen but when the bullet exit his body, it caused severe damage to a lung and kidney. He was admitted to the Jamaica Hospital, but was later transferred to a medical facility in Long Island to receive treatment.Anmarie George, an aunt of the two men, when contacted via telephone, told Guyana Times that Ricky and another brother, Vicky, arrived in the US on Saturday for their grandmother’s funeral, which is scheduled for Wednesday. She explained that based on reports they received, the two men were shot during a robbery.“From what we got, is that Michael forgot his mobile phone in his car and went to retrieve it when he was attacked by a group of men who attempted to take away a gold chain he was wearing and a scuffle started. After Rickey saw this, he went to his brother’s assistance and it was then we learnt that one of the men whipped out a gun and discharged a round hitting him to his back,” George revealed.She explained that after Ricky was shot, he was left on the roadway for about 45 minutes where he bled to death. His youngest brother was later picked up and rushed to the Jamaica Hospital.Detectives at the Scene early Monday morningThe Eyewitness News in New York reported that detectives were looking into whether the young men had left a nearby club prior to the shooting.“Police say the two men attempted to rob the brothers and they resisted, getting into a physical struggle with them. One of the men pulled a gun and shot them both. The men fled the scene in a dark coloured sedan,” the news entity reported.Further, it stated that a similar car crashed into another vehicle at 103rd Avenue and Lefferts Boulevard, and detectives were looking into whether the suspects were in that vehicle. After the crash, the car then proceeded onto the Belt Parkway and disappeared. No arrests have been made.Meanwhile, George explained that Michael’s condition was critical and the men’s mother was devastated. “She is in the process of preparing for her mother’s funeral… her father is hospitalised, now one of her sons is dead and the other is battling for his life… you could imagine her present condition,” the aunt added.Meanwhile, relatives in Guyana explained that they received the dreaded news about 03:30h on Monday. One relative who spoke with Guyana Times explained Ricky and his eldest brother Vicky along with their father lived in Barbados for some time before returning to Guyana.Ricky was described as a different “breed” in the family. He was jovial, loving and caring. He leaves to mourn his mother, his injured brother who is battling for his life, and two sisters.last_img read more
