76ers, Butler look to maintain home-court against Raptors

first_imgBasketball 101.Butler’s playoff performance has been what the 76ers expected when they acquired him from Minnesota in November to help them make a deep playoff run. The Sixers reached the East semis last season and both team owner Josh Harris and Brown issued the challenge for the franchise to go further — or else.Now, a major shake-up could still loom — on the roster and on the bench — if the Sixers can’t solve the Raptors. Butler’s future has been a major question mark because he, along with trade-deadline pickup Tobias Harris, is a free agent and could command max money on the open market. Butler seems to be a good fit in Philly, both in postseason production and as a fiery leader.Brown has admired Butler’s rise in the organization and attempted to praise his Game 2 performance by calling him James Butler.“My name isn’t James,” Butler said when told of Brown’s comments. “It is literally Jimmy.”ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

Scott’s not the only one feeling the pinch in the postseason: a fan with the handle @mdelNBA tweeted he’d get a Scott tattoo if he reached 1,000 followers in 24 hours. Sure enough, the stunt ensured the fan hit the modest milestone and the user Waiting for Playoff Anzejs tweeted a photo of “Mike Scott Hive” on his left side. Scott found the fan and got him tickets for Game 4 in Philly on Sunday. “I’ve never had fans like this,” Scott said. “I feel like I’m one of them.”KEEP AN EYE ON: Raptors guard Danny Green, who missed all three 3-pointers in the fourth quarter of Game 2, including one that would have forced overtime. “I could probably use a little more arc on my shot, but some games it goes that way,” he said. Toronto should be in better shape if it goes Green’s way in Game 3.PRESSURE IS ON: Butler, who said at Wednesday’s practice, “we’re not letting the media tear us apart.” Brown said the Sixers had been motivated in part by a poll of six Sixers beat writers who picked the team to lose the series.

Performances of Sinoe and Grand Kru Legislators

first_imgLiberians from all works of life are currently converging on the capitals of Grand Kru and Sinoe Counties, for the 168th Independence Celebration of the country.It is a common and accepted notion that citizens hailing from the two counties are highly respected and considered among the best educated.The same can also be said about those who represent those counties in the 53rd Legislature, especially those in the Upper House (Senate).Sinoe County ranking Senator Joseph Nagbe, until his defeat in the last poll for the post of Pro Tempore, served on the powerful Statutory Judiciary Committee. Under his chairmanship, several concessions, especially in the oil sector, were ratified by the Senate.Since his defeat by Gbarpolu County Senator Armah Zolu Jallah, Senator Nagbe who declined to contest for the Judiciary Committee post has not been regular at sittings, a situation attributed to ill health.Senator J. Milton Teahjay, who bested his kinsman Mobutu Vlah Nyenpan in the December 2014 Special Senatorial Elections, has not disappointed what many educators within our local setting always respect him for-eloquence and participation.Senator Teahjay who resigned his post as Superintendent of Sinoe to run for the Senate, has already presented a bill on the Senate floor calling for the deployment of internal auditors in the 15 counties; and requested his colleagues to increase the County Development Fund (CDF) from US$200,000 to US$400,000.00.Teahjay currently chairs the Committee on Information.Grand Kru County Senators, Peter Sonpon Coleman and incoming Albert Tugbe Chie, chair two of the most important committees-Health, and Lands, Mines, Energy and Environment.Senator Coleman, a Medical Doctor by qualification has been very effective as chair of the Health Committee, and ably kept his colleagues abreast of developments during the outbreak of the Ebola virus.Senator Chie, a former Professor of Geology at the University of Liberia, replaced his retired mentor, former Senate Pro Tempore Cletus Segbe Wotorson, the country’s longest serving Geophysicsist.As chair of the Lands, Mines, Energy and Environment Committee, Sen. Chie has already conducted two important hearings, one concerning the flood and sea erosion situation affecting the coastal line of Liberia; and hearings on the planned reform of the Liberia Electricity Corporation.Like his predecessor, the Senate may likely see another Cletus Wortorson in the making.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Garamendi calls for blackmail probe

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsGaramendi is running in the primary for the Democratic nomination for lieutenant governor against state Sens. Liz Figueroa, D-Fremont, and Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo. The proposed regulations would limit auto insurers’ ability to use ZIP codes to base their rates on where customers live. Garamendi said the new rules would implement the intent of voters when they approved Proposition 103 in 1988 and base rates primarily on a motorist’s driving record. Critics contend the regulations would unfairly boost rates for drivers in suburban and rural areas with relatively few accidents and auto thefts and cut them for motorists in urban areas. A group called Californians to Stop Unfair Rate Increases announced Monday that five insurance companies – Farmers, 21st Century, State Farm, Safeco and Allstate – were putting up funding for the ad campaign. It’s scheduled to begin next week in 17 mostly rural counties. SACRAMENTO – Accusing the insurance industry of a “serious breech of the law,” state Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi asked federal and state officials Tuesday to investigate his claim that a group of insurers tried to blackmail him. Garamendi charged Monday that an insurance industry representative contacted him through an intermediary and offered to drop a pending $2 million ad campaign that attacks proposed auto insurance regulations drafted by Garamendi’s office if he would abandon the regulations. “I firmly believe that this amounts to a serious attempt to blackmail me in my role as California’s elected insurance commissioner,” Garamendi said in a letter to the FBI, the U.S. attorney in Sacramento and the state attorney general. “Clearly, I was offered a significant advantage. If I abandoned my responsibilities and delayed implementing the will of the voters, I would not be hit by a $2 million negative advertising campaign in the final weeks leading up to the June election.” The campaign includes mailers that mention Garamendi’s name several times and a television commercial that urges viewers to “tell Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi to drop this unfair plan now.” A campaign adviser for Californians to Stop Unfair Rate Increases, Rick Claussen, suggested that Garamendi was told about the campaign through former political consultant Darry Sragow as a courtesy, not as an attempt to pressure him to drop the regulations. “This is a very legitimate public policy campaign on a very legitimate issue that we have every right to be talking about,” he said. “If this somehow has been taken out of context, I’m sorry about that. (But) what we’re doing with this campaign is certainly above-board and not unprecedented. We’re very comfortable where we are.” Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante, a Democrat, and Silicon Valley millionaire Steve Poizner, a Republican, are the leading candidates for insurance commissioner and are likely to face each other in the November general election. Neither could be immediately reached for comment about whether they would attempt to overturn the proposed regulations if elected. Bustamante’s campaign has received $47,500 in donations from insurance industry sources, although none from the companies paying for the ad campaign. The amount is about 18 percent of the $261,266 he has raised so far for his campaign. Campaign finance records on file at the secretary of state’s office show Poizner has not accepted money from insurance companies. Tom Dresslar, a spokesman for state Attorney General Bill Lockyer, said his office would “undertake a serious, thorough review (of Garamendi’s allegations) to determine whether any laws have been violated.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Los Padres National Forest fire grows past 11,000 acres

first_imgA wildfire in the Los Padres National Forest has charred more than 11,000 acres in the wilderness north of Santa Clarita, officials said today, but favorable weather may offer firefighters some relief. Higher humidity and cooler temperatures – at least 10 degrees lower from sweltering 100 degrees on Monday when the fire began – aided firefighters as they continued to smother the blaze from the air. Still, with flames still burning in the remote and rugged terrain – the Day Fire started near Piru Creek and is spreading in the Sespe Wilderness Area, home of a California Condor preserve – crews are bracing for long battle. “This is going to be a marathon,” said Stanton Florea, a U.S. Forest Service spokesman. “It’s going to be a long duration fire. We’re actively fighting it where we can and to do so safely.” The agency urged children, the elderly or those with respiratory or heart diseases to avoid extended outdoor activities in these areas. On Thursday, fire crews cleared brush to protect picnic areas, a fire lookout post and the occasional cabin scattered on the lake’s western edge. The fire has blackened 11,549 acres by this morning – up from the 7,100 acres Thursday. Nearly 700 firefighters and five helicopters are at the scene. As flames emerge from Piru Creek and its tributaries, crews could better tackle it, Florea said. eugene.tong@dailynews.com (818)546-3304160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Winds of up to 15 miles per hour were expected to send flames north and west of Slide and Dome mountains near Pyramid Lake, which sits along Interstate 5, straddling the Los Padres and Angeles national forests. The blaze has clouded the air in north Los Angeles County with smoke, though the I-5 – a key corridor into Southern California – remains open. “There are a lot of smoke there and you can actually see flames from the freeway – at night in particular,” Florea said. “It makes a lot of people seeing that nervous even if its a couple miles away.” South Coast Air Quality Management District issued a special smoke advisory today due to the wildfire for the Santa Clarita Valley and areas in the San Gabriel Mountains. last_img read more

Al Jazira 1-2 Real Madrid: Gareth Bale earns Club World Cup final place

first_img The Welsh forward stepped off the bench to hit the winner 1 Real Madrid avoided humiliation against Al Jazira as Gareth Bale’s late winner earned them a 2-1 victory and a place in the final of the FIFA Club World Cup.Despite Real dominating the match at the Zayed Sports City Stadium in Abu Dhabi, it was the team from the United Arab Emirates who took a shock 41st-minute lead through Romarinho.And Al Jazira looked to have gone two ahead early in the second half but it was chalked off for offside after a video referral.Cristiano Ronaldo equalised shortly afterwards and substitute Bale scored moments after his introduction with nine minutes left to set up a final clash with Brazilians Gremio on Saturday.In the early stages, it was hard to see any result other than a convincing win for Real, winners in two of the last three seasons.They had seven efforts on goal in the opening 14 minutes but goalkeeper Ali Khaseif performed heroics to keep the scoresheet blank.He pushed a deflected Ronaldo header on to the crossbar, with Karim Benzema seeing the follow-up blocked, and then kept out Luka Modric, also with the help of the frame of his goal.Two more Ronaldo efforts were kept out by the 30-year-old, but they took their toll and he needed lengthy treatment to his right thigh.Khaseif decided he could continue and, although hobbling, produced brilliant flying saves to keep out first Benzema and then Modric.Al Jazira qualified for the competition by winning the UAE Pro-League and defeated Japan’s Urawa Red Diamonds in the quarter-finals.It was not purely attack against defence, with Al Jazira demonstrating a real threat on the break, and star striker Ali Mabkhout was close to a goal in the 21st minute but shot just wide.Real then had a first goal chalked off when Benzema’s header was ruled out for a foul by Ronaldo.It was deja vu in the 31st minute as Casemiro headed in. Having initially seemed to disallow the goal, Brazilian referee Sandro Ricci then gave it but it was referred to the Video Assistant Referee.Ricci went to the touchline to have another look and decided to change his mind, ruling Benzema to be offside despite the striker not touching the ball.And Real were stunned 10 minutes later when another Al Jazira break was finished off by Brazilian Romarinho, who showed great composure to cut inside and find the bottom corner.Three minutes after the break Al Jazira were in dreamland when, from a Real corner, Mabkhout and Mbark Boussoufa broke and the latter stroked the ball into the net. But the video referee took another look and spotted Boussoufa had strayed marginally offside.It was the turning point of the game as in the 53rd minute Real finally got their goal, Modric setting up Ronaldo.The first task for Khaled Al Senaani, who had replaced the ailing Khaseif, was to pick the ball out of the net but he proved an able deputy with two fine saves to keep out Benzema.The pressure was growing and the unfortunate Frenchman hit the post twice in four minutes.Just as extra-time was beginning to look a real possibility, Bale was introduced after recovering from a calf injury and promptly finished off Lucas Vazquez’s cutback.last_img read more

Frank Zappa is now revered at home

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESurfer attacked by shark near Channel Islands calls rescue a ‘Christmas miracle’Zappa graduated from Antelope Valley High School in 1958 and, from his own tiny studio in Cucamonga, started recording music. Before he died of cancer at age 52 in 1993, he produced nearly 60 record albums and, in 1988, won a Grammy for best rock instrumental. Some of his albums contained complex, experimental orchestral works; others were by his band the Mothers of Invention and had names like “Weasels Ripped My Flesh” and “We’re Only in It for the Money,” combining unconventional music and satiric, often raunchy lyrics. The music and the satire are what at age 12 or 13 attracted fan Lou Allred, who possesses about 450 Zappa artifacts, some of which are in the museum exhibit, and hosts an annual reunion for former Zappa band members. “I don’t know if you’d call it humor; you might call it sarcasm,” Allred said of Zappa’s approach. Zappa’s best-known song is probably 1982’s “Valley Girl,” performed with daughter Moon Unit reciting lines of teen slang, such as “like, barf me out” and “fer shure, fer shure” in a nasal twang. LANCASTER – Iconoclast rock musician and nonconformist composer Frank Zappa once as a teenager was arrested while walking down Lancaster Boulevard, in what he believed was an authoritarian attempt to stop his R&B band from playing at a Lancaster Woman’s Club dance. So it probably would come as a shock to him, 13 years after his death, to learn he occupies a central spot in a Lancaster Museum/Art Gallery exhibit: “Good Times, Groovy Tunes and Legendary Boards.” Zappa photographs, album covers, concert posters, even sheet music for the drum part of his “The Black Page” piece and instruments played by former local band members take up the exhibit’s center, surrounded by surfboards, skateboards, seascapes and a 1949 Chrysler “woody” station wagon. Zappa came to Lancaster as a teenager when his father took a job at Edwards Air Force Base, then in the midst of a Cold War boom that was changing the Antelope Valley from a sleepy farming community. But the first bands he ever led came out of Antelope Valley High School, uniting teens who like Zappa shared a love for R&B music and blues. Band members would pick through used jukebox 45-rpm records at a Lancaster store, looking for old-time blues musicians and the bands and company labels they liked. Zappa listened to the records, figured out each instrument’s part and explained to his bandmates what to play. “I don’t know how and when he learned his music theory,” . “He impressed me when I first met him. He seemed to know music. He was so comfortable with it.” And just like in any rock-‘n’-roll movie from the 1950s, the bands – The Blackouts and The Omens – and their music were unpopular with many parents and with the people who rented them halls to hold dances. “They looked at us as kind of bad,” said Fred Salazar, a 1959 Antelope Valley High graduate who played saxophone in Zappa’s bands said Salazar, who stayed in Antelope Valley after high school and now is a retired Edison electricia n. “We were just out to enjoy ourselves and play the kind of music we liked.” In a 1987 interview with a Daily News reporter, Zappa said of living in Lancaster: “I have a great deal of sympathy for anybody who is a creative individual and who is stuck in a town with that kind of mentality. If you happen to be a person who is different … your life can be made to be pretty miserable.” Southern California Edison has a practice of naming its power circuits, and when two were added in the late 1980s to the Quartz Hill substation to meet population growth one was named Godde, for a pioneer farming family, and one Zappa. “I don’t know who had the distinction of naming the line, but it was somebody familiar with Frank,” Salazar said.

Man City blow as ace to miss next two games, fears he could be out for a month

first_imgSergio Aguero is expected to miss Manchester City’s next two matches to avoid running the risk of an extended absence over the festive period.Aguero, the Argentina forward, was pulled out of Saturday’s 3-1 defeat of Bournemouth with a muscle injury, and he is doubtful to face Watford and Chelsea this week after Pep Guardiola revealed club doctors warned him Aguero could be ruled out until January if he aggravated the problem. Jesus has endured a frustrating season and hell hope to make the most of Aguero’s absence RANKED no dice Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won MONEY Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card Aguero missed City’s latest victory Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions “Hopefully I make the best out of my next chance.”For his part, Guardiola praised Jesus’ all-round contribution against Bournemouth and said he had no concerns that the Brazil international’s goal drought would continue much longer.“We just relax,” Guardiola said. “It’s work, this work ethic he has. Always I said to him: when you work like he works on the pitch, always we will sustain him. We will always be there.“Football is not for one player the reason why he plays bad. He helps us a lot. Gabriel is a delight. He’s young, the same as the other ones, he will improve because has the desire to improve and that is important. He helped us a lot.” shining 2 ADVICE Berahino hits back at b******t Johnson criticism – ‘I was in a dark place at Stoke’ “The doctors told me (on Friday) Sergio cannot play,” Guardiola said. “If he plays, maybe it’s four or five weeks off. In that situation, this month, with a lot of games, he was not safe.”City’s all-time top scorer therefore seems unlikely to make the trip to Vicarage Road on Tuesday or Stamford Bridge on Saturday.“Right now, I’m not quite sure,” Guardiola said when asked about Aguero’s availability. “We’ll see. That’s why I said before day by day we see. I speak with the doctors every day, they make a report and a briefing. They say ‘ready’ or ‘not ready’ and we decide.”Gabriel Jesus started against Bournemouth in Aguero’s absence, but was unable to get on the scoresheet.Though he scored a hat-trick against Shakhtar Donetsk last month, Jesus has scored only one league goal for City in a largely frustrating season to date.
