Warriors top Celtics

first_imgSaturday’s matchup between the Celtics and the Warriors was the perfect cliched atmosphere. It felt like a playoff game, the two best guards in the league were battling back and forth in a potential NBA Finals showdown.But there was nothing cliched about Curry and Irving’s performances at Oracle Arena.Two-time MVP Curry dominated the second half, but did so getting to the line just two times before the final minutes of the game, finishing with 49 points, five assists and four rebounds.”We bring the best out of each other and he’s always battling,” Curry told ESPN. “He’s an amazingly talented player who can do some crazy things on the floor whether I play good defense or not.”Irving scored 37 points on 13-of-18 shooting for the Eastern Conference-leading Celtics.WESTBROOK POSTS ANOTHER TRIPLE-DOUBLERussell Westbrook posted his 15th triple-double of the season with 31 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds, but Carmelo Anthony was the star of the night eclipsing the 25,000-career points mark. Anthony scored 21 points and added five rebounds in the Oklahoma City Thunder’s 121-108 win over the Detroit Pistons.Hornets guard Kemba Walker scored 30 points with six rebounds and five assists, but Charlotte fell to the Heat 95-91.Wizards guard Tim Frazier got a lot of playing time and he took advantage as Washington blew out the Atlanta Hawks 129-104. He scored just four points, but he had 14 assists in 27 minutes of play.SCHRODER STRUGGLES IN HAWKS LOSSHawks guard Dennis Schroder scored just nine points on three-of-12 shooting with seven assists. The nine points are just two more than a season low for the 24-year-old player.SIT BACK AND ENOY GORDONNever give Aaron Gordon an open lane to the basket, and never, ever let him get a fast-break opportunity. He just may throw down a reverse-windmill dunk like he did in the Orlando Magic’s 114-112 loss to the Indiana Pacers.AARON. GORDON. REVERSE.

Incinerators for Region 1 hospitals

first_imgIncinerators for the proper disposal of medical waste are to be constructed at Mabaruma and Pakera District Hospitals in Region One (Barima/Waini). Construction should be completed by yearend and will lead to better management of solid waste in the health sector.Regional Health Officer, Region One, Dr Ceredel Mc WattSolid Waste Management Consultant Rufus LewisRegional Health Officer, Region One, Dr Ceredel McWatt said that they are working with regional engineers at the level of the Ministry of Public Health in order to ensure a competent contractor is engaged to construct the incinerators. The total cost of the construction of the two incinerators is $26 million, the Government Information Agency (GINA) reported.Meanwhile, Waste Management Consultant, Rufus Lewis, while making a presentation on proper medical waste management at a recent meeting for Regional Health Officers, pointed out that the proper management of solid waste starts with the separation of the different types of medical waste.“Onsite waste should be segregated from infectious waste as well as non-infectious waste. In other words, in each ward we should have at least three containers, one for infectious waste, one for the sharps and other non-infectious waste,” he explained.A number of challenges were identified, which may be inhibiting factors to the efficient practice of medical waste management. Some of these are: no appropriate bins and bags for proper disposal of the different types of waste; minimal safety and health programmes; poor sanitation of healthcare facility and its environment; and no biodecontamination facilities which would remove bacteria, chemical and radioactive materials from employees’ bodies and clothing before leaving the health treatment environment.Lewis urged Regional Health Officials to educate staff on proper waste disposal and to also ensure that the practices are followed through.The advantages of proper medical waste disposal include the creation of a healthy atmosphere that is free from microbes, thus minimising the risk of infection to staff, visitors and other people, cutting off unpleasant sights and bad odours, and also the reduction of harmful insects.last_img read more

Arsenal fortitude key to successful finale

first_img0Shares0000LONDON, March 13- Arsene Wenger believes his players’ mental strength will determine whether Arsenal can finish the season on a high.Wenger’s side will attempt to tighten their grip on third place in the Premier League when West Ham visit the Emirates Stadium on Saturday. That London derby comes five days after the Gunners recorded a memorable FA Cup victory at Manchester United to set up a Wembley semi-final against Reading or Bradford.And next week the north Londoners will attempt to overturn a 3-1 deficit when they travel to Monaco for a Champions League last 16 second leg tie.If Wenger’s players can retain the Cup and finish in the top four, they will have successfully built on their efforts of last season when the FA Cup final triumph over Hull marked an end to the club’s nine-year trophy-drought.But should they fall short and finish the season empty-handed and outside the top four, the criticism frequently directed at Wenger will be heard once again.The Arsenal manager accepts the pressure on his team is greater now but says it is down to the players to respond positively.“We can only help so much, 99 per cent is down to the individual,” Wenger said.“We can push them over the line with the one per cent we can give, but 99 per cent is them having the responsibility to make their own life.“You have to stand up to be strong enough, to fight, to show that you have the courage and that you’re not inhibited because you’re under pressure, and that’s the difficulty of the modern player.“That has increased and the resistance to stress from the young players is immense today because everything is analysed. Every pass you make, every first touch, how far you run, how much you fight, everything.“There is a verdict on everything so that kind of stress has increased and it’s much more difficult to deal with than it was a few years ago.“Twenty years ago you could lose a game and people would say, ‘Next time Arsenal will play better’. Today you lose a game and it is always a crisis. It’s not easy for the players to deal with that.” – Physical games –Wenger insists his team selection against the Hammers will not be influenced by the looming Monaco game despite his side’s tiredness.“We were at a high level of fatigue because we played against Monaco, Everton, QPR, Manchester United, all very physical games,” he said.“I will have to test medically, physically, how the players are on Friday, and I will make my decision then. The big priority is of course West Ham.”West Ham are likely to be without striker Enner Valencia, who cut his big toe after an accident at home.Hammers manager Sam Allardyce said: “Enner has had an accident at home and has cut his big toe quite severely on a broken cup.“We’re not exactly certain but we think it will be too soon for him be considered for the game at Arsenal on Saturday.“It was a freak accident at a time when we could have done without it due to our lack of available strikers.”Centre-back Winston Reid is out with a hamstring problem but Alex Song is expected to be fit to face his former club.“I watched Arsenal’s game away at Manchester United and everyone could see the quality they have,” Allardyce said.“We know how difficult it is at the Emirates, where we’ve actually gone in front a few times but not managed to hold on.“We’ll go there and give it our best shot and see what happens. We’ll try and do what we did against Chelsea and see if that’s good enough to get us a result.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Championship news: Bristol City appoint Lee Johnson as manager

first_imgBristol City have appointed Lee Johnson as their new manager on a three-and-a-half year deal. The 34-year-old leaves League One Barnsley to join the Championship side, replacing Steve Cotterill who was sacked last month. Johnson follows in the footsteps of father Gary, who was manager at Ashton Gate for five years between 2005 and 2010. The new boss will be present at their game against Charlton on Saturday before being unveiled to the press on Monday. City’s chief operating officer Mark Ashton told the club’s website: “Lee is a very bright, intelligent young man who is highly motivated and very detailed in his approach. He’s well-known to the club; fans, stakeholders and staff. “He is one of the up and coming coaches in the country and having interviewed him, I had no hesitation in recommending to the Board that Lee is the right fit for this football club. “Lee also has the advantage of knowing Bristol City very well and will be able to fit seamlessly back into Ashton Gate. “There are substantial synergies in the way that we think and the way that we believe football departments should be operated. “We’ll work together to build this football club for sustainable success.” He added: “I’d like to thank Barnsley FC for their professionalism, allowing us to speak to and subsequently appoint Lee.” 1 Lee Johnson last_img read more

Confirmed! West Ham sign striker Jonathan Calleri on season-long loan

first_img Jonathan Calleri comes on loan from Uruguyan club Deportivo Maldonado 1 Argentine striker Jonathan Calleri has completed a season-long loan move to West Ham from Uruguyan club Deportivo Maldonado.The 22-year-old linked up with his new team-mates at training on Tuesday and will go straight into the squad for Thursday’s Europa League play-off first leg with Astra Giurgiu in Romania.The forward topped the 2015 Copa Libertadores scoring charts with Sao Paulo, and has also enjoyed a fruitful stint at Boca Juniors.“I am very happy to have signed for West Ham,” Calleri told West Ham’s official club website.“This represents a fantastic new challenge for me and I am really looking forward to it.“The Premier League is the best league in the world and so I am delighted to have this opportunity to play in such a prestigious league.”Calleri’s arrival will offset the thigh injury suffered by club-record signing Andre Ayew in Monday night’s 2-1 Premier League defeat at Chelsea.The Hammers’ £20.5million man Ayew trudged off after little more than half an hour, leaving manager Slaven Bilic admitting the striker will face scans to determine the extent of the injury.While West Ham are likely to continue the search for another more established forward, Calleri’s presence will certainly ease Bilic’s striking options, with Sofiane Feghouli still battling a hamstring problem.Argentina Under-23 cap Calleri moves to West Ham after representing his country at the Rio Olympics.With 39 goals in 90 appearances in the last two seasons, Calleri is intent on warming to the challenges of English football as quickly as possible.“It is a new chapter for me and so I am excited to get started here and to fit in as quickly as possible, so that I can be as useful as possible to my new team-mates and manager,” said Calleri.“These are exciting times for me personally and I am motivated to adapt my game to this new environment.“I am a player who always tries to work as hard as I can and to do my best for the team.”last_img read more
