Had they won at West Bromwich Albion the Gunners would have been first; instead they lost and other results saw them drop to fourth place, though just two points off the top.Having drawn with Spurs in their previous game, Arsenal face Norwich hoping to avoid a third league game without a win since May.Norwich have lost five of their last six games, that poor sequence interrupted by the 1-0 win over Swansea in their last home game. In six home games in the league the Canaries have won two and lost three while scoring just seven goals but conceding only eight.Arsenal have lost just two of 14 games against Norwich. Their first ever game in the Premier League, in August 1992, was against Norwich, at the old Highbury – and the Canaries won 4-2.But the Gunners have won the last three while Norwich last beat the Gunners at Carrow Road in October 2012.last_img read more

Dominant Davis leads Pelicans past Warriors in crucial game 3 win

first_imgScientists seek rare species survivors amid Australia flames Highlighted by dunks of the driving, put-back or alley-oop variety, Davis had 33 points to go with 18 rebounds and four steals, and the Pelicans defeated the Warriors 119-100 on Friday night to trim Golden State’s series lead to 2-1.“He came out aggressive. He set the tone on both ends of the floor,” Rondo said. “He attacked the rim strong tonight.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownPelicans coach Alvin Gentry added that he “felt real good” during a time out when he heard Davis say, “We’re not losing this game.”Davis’ determined play around the basket helped New Orleans outscore the Warriors 54-36 in the paint and outrebound Golden State 54-44.

(AP Photo/Gerald Herbert)NEW ORLEANS — Rajon Rondo told Anthony Davis to “take a nap and think about 50” in the hours leading up to playoff game New Orleans all but had to win to have any hope of staging a playoff upset of defending champion Golden State.Davis didn’t quite score 50, but his dominance around and above the rim got the Pelicans back in the series.ADVERTISEMENT ‘Stop romanticizing Pinoy resilience’ Green group flags ‘overkill’ use of plastic banderitas in Manila Sto.

The Warriors never led by more than a single point and trailed by double digits for almost the entire first half, going down by 25 points in the third quarter and 26 in the fourth.Golden State shot uncharacteristically poorly from outside, missing 22 of 31 3-point attempts and finishing at 38 percent shooting (35 of 92) overall.“Most of it is attributed the Pelicans. Their defense was great,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “They were the aggressors. They brought the necessary force to the game on their home floor and these are the ebbs and flows of the playoffs.”Jrue Holiday scored 21 for New Orleans and Ian Clark added 18 points against his former club. As in Game 2, Rondo once again had a heated exchange with Warriors forward Draymond Green. This time, Rondo backed it up with 21 assists.ADVERTISEMENT “You can’t get assists without your teammates. They made shots tonight. Guys moved well without the ball,” Rondo said. “It starts with defense. We were able to get stops, get out in transition — create mismatches in transition. Guys are going to their spots and I’m just trying to find them.”Klay Thompson scored 26 for Golden State, but missed 13 of 22 shots. Stephen Curry, in his second game back after a sprained knee sidelined him more than a month, missed 13 of 19 shots and finished with 19 points. Kevin Durant scored 22 points for the Warriors, but hit only two shots in the second half.“I was rushing a little bit and just missed shots,” Curry said. “I’m not going to get in my head about it. … You can’t really dwell on anything.”The Pelicans, meanwhile, made 14 of 31 3s, with Holiday, Clark, Nikola Mirotic and Solomon Hill each hitting three.They seemed to benefit from being back at home and looked to be the more comfortable team shooting from the outset.Hill, who missed all four 3s he took in the first two games, made his first three from deep. At one point late in the second quarter, New Orleans was 10-of-15 from 3, while Golden State was just 5-of-15.Mirotic’s third 3 of the first half put the Pelicans up 60-48 late in the second quarter, but the Warriors’ ability to score in bursts help them slash their deficit in half before the period ended.Thompson, who’d shot poorly in Game 2 and at the beginning of Game 3, scored eight quick points on a driving layup and a pair of 3s, trimming New Orleans’ lead to 62-56 at halftime.But the Pelicans opened the third quarter with a 10-2 run and led by double digits the rest of the way, responding each time the Warriors tried to make a run.TIP-INSWarriors: Green, who was soundly booed by Pelicans fans, had 11 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists. … Kerr juggled the starting lineup with two new insertions, elevating Curry back to starter and also starting center JaVale McGee.

Kick-down-the-door bandits execute Berbice domestic worker

first_imgA Corentyne, Berbice woman was on Tuesday night killed by two gunmen who kicked down the door to her home and shot her.Dead is Lilawatie Muhammed, 45, a domestic worker of Lot 198 Sixth Street, Tain Settlement, Corentyne, Berbice.Reports are the woman was killed in front of her children about 23:30h.According to the woman’s 18-year-old son, Ashad Ishack, he and his 21-year-old sister and their mother were at home when two masked men kicked open the front door of their home. He said one of them was carrying a shotgun.He explained that they were all put to kneel on the floor and the men then demanded money. However, the mother of four said that she did not have any money.Dead: Lilawatie MuhammedThe teen related that one of the men responded by placing the gun to her throat and pulling the trigger. The bullet exited the top of her head and she fell dead on the floor, the young man said.This publication was told that after shooting Muhammed, the men immediately exited the building, scaled the fence and disappeared into the bushes between the village and the sea. The two siblings then alerted Police and rushed their mother to the Port Mourant Hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival.B Division (Berbice) Commander, Assistant Commissioner Ian Amsterdam visited the family on Wednesday, along with members of the Cops and Faith Network, to extend his condolences. The Commander promised the family a thorough investigation.Meanwhile, speaking with the media, Amsterdam said Police have since arrested one person for questioning.“The gun was placed on her throat, because we have two holes one on her throat and one on her head, which indicated that the gun was placed on her throat and the warhead exited through her head. After that, they ran out of the house and discharged a round somewhere in the yard as they were leaving. We have one man in custody who is said to have been having problems with the family,” Amsterdam related.According to him, the Police are not counting it as a robbery based on the fact that nothing was stolen.“So we got to look to see if it was an execution as against a robbery.”According to the Commander, the evidence does not indicate that the gun went off accidentally. “According to the son, they did cock the gun, meaning that they did put a bullet in the breech and they did not shoot anybody else. If it was not execution, they would have been looking for something else but having discharged a round and then coming outside, they discharged another one without even getting cash or valuables; it could be that their intention was to execute her.”In 2016, Muhammed’s home was destroyed by fire in what was believed to be an act of arson. The suspects in that act are all overseas.The family of three has since been renting the Tain Settlement house. Police are continuing their investigations. (Andrew Carmichael)last_img read more

Son of Cesar Chavez speaks to students, officials

first_imgHis son urged the audience to get involved in the struggle for fair immigration reform, saying there is still “a lot of work to be done.” Chavez, who has served as president of the National Farm Workers Service Center since 1991, also discussed the significant changes that have occurred on the ground since his father worked to organize field laborers in the 1960s. “Today, agriculture is completely different,” he said. “But these immigrant workers are the same people. They speak the same languages. Their kids go to the same run-down schools. They live the same poverty. “This is the challenge we have today,” he added. City officials also presented Chavez with a $3,000 donation to benefit the Cesar E. Chavez Foundation. • Photo Gallery: Annual Cesar Chavez Day SANTA FE SPRINGS – You don’t have to be a hero to help your community, Paul F.

New support programs for forest workers outlined by the government

first_img $40 million to establish a new cost-shared, early-retirement bridging program for older forest workers; $15 million to establish a new short-term forest employment program, focused on fire prevention and community resiliency projects; $12 million for workers to access skills training, and for employer and community grants for training; $2 million to establish a new job placement co-ordination office that will track the transition and employment of impacted forest workers on an individual basis; and Community support grants aimed at providing short-term assistance to communities more profoundly impacted by the closure of a major forest employer.“The Province is committed to supporting the people impacted by this change, but we need the forest industry and the federal government to step up and do their part as well,” Donaldson said. “I’m hopeful that the Interior forest sector recognizes that the new industry that will arise from this transition will need skilled, experienced workers to produce new forest products that can compete in global markets.”Donaldson called on the forest industry to increase supports for impacted workers, ensure key corporate leaders are working on the industry transition and ensure that it does a better job of communicating effectively with affected workers and communities.“The forest industry and its workers have built the success of the industry and bolstered B.C.’s economy for decades,” said Harry Bains, Minister of Labour. “I am pleased that my ministry can help deliver solutions that provide direct and tangible support to workers impacted by current challenges in the forest industry and that will help sustain family-supporting jobs in communities that are home to the industry and its workers.” PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – The provincial government made an announcement Tuesday, September 17th, 2019 to provide $69 million to fund a new series of measures to support British Columbia forest workers impacted by mill closures and shift reductions in several B.C. Interior communities.In an effort to adjust to the end of the mountain pine beetle harvest and the devastating 2017 and 2018 fire seasons the Interior forest industry has been reducing productionPremier Horgan and Doug Donaldson, Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, met with the chief executive officers of the major Interior forest companies to set out measures to support forest workers in the months and years ahead.- Advertisement -According to media relations for the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, the only area not covered in the support programs is the coast and Vancouver Island.“The previous government knew that the end of mountain pine beetle harvest would disrupt the lives of forest workers, contractors and communities, but they did little to prepare for this inevitable transition,” said Premier John Horgan. “While the forest sector must reduce surplus milling capacity to remain competitive, it cannot do so at the expense of the workers, contractors and communities who built the industry. Our government will ensure that forest workers impacted by mill closures are supported.”The governments implemented measures include;Advertisementlast_img read more

‘Don’t make me laugh’ – Mourinho blasts Ivanovic headbutt claims

first_imgChelsea boss Jose Mourinho was not amused by suggestions Branislav Ivanovic had headbutted Everton midfielder James McCarthy during the Blues’ 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge.It was a frustrating game for the Premier League leaders, who were constantly rebuffed by the Toffees’ stubborn defence throughout the match, and the tension boiled over in a frantic finale.After Nemanja Matic had what seemed to be a late winning goal ruled out for offside, players from both teams clashed when Gareth Barry was dismissed for tripping Blues winner Willian.Ivanovic motioned his head towards McCarthy in the resulting fracas, with the Everton substitute booked for his part in the melee, but the Serb avoided censure from referee Jonathan Moss and could face retrospective action from the Football Association.Willian eventually struck the winning goal in the 90th minute as Chelsea held onto their seven-point lead at the top, but the majority of the post-match attention went to Ivanovic, which evidently irked manager Mourinho.“Did Branislav Ivanovic go in with his head? Don’t make me laugh. Don’t make me laugh,” said the Blues boss.Mourinho, who was last month fined £25,000 for saying there was a “clear campaign” against Chelsea, was not prepared to discuss the Ivanovic incident post-match or the possibility the defender would be banned.He added to BT Sport: “I’m concerned with my reaction, because one more question I leave. The next question for that story I have to go.”However, the Blues boss continues to imply his side are unfairly treated and two decisions went in favour of Everton in the opening quarter of the contest.Chelsea might have had a fourth-minute penalty when the ball hit Steven Naismith’s arm, and Everton had another reprieve when Barry fouled Juan Cuadrado and Eden Hazard in quick succession but was booked only for the first offence.“I’m tired of stories and I’m never tired of football. Football is emotion and what we had here today,” the Portuguese said.“A discussion because of a red card, a red card that should be given in the first half, because Barry should be sent off in the first half.“He pulled Hazard. The second yellow card should be given there.”Mourinho had no complaints with referee Moss’ performance, however, having made a number of tough, but correct, calls during the game.“I think it’s a clear penalty. I also think the referee had a fantastic performance,” the Blues boss added.“The official that disallowed the goal, it was a fantastic decision, very good, because it was offside.“It was a difficult game, very fast but broken at the same time, very end-to-end, but the referee did well.”last_img read more

Wilkins: United fans would embrace Lampard if he moved to Old Trafford

first_imgRay Wilkins has told BBC Radio Manchester he believes Frank Lampard would be accepted by fans and make a major impact were he to join Manchester United.Lampard and Chelsea team-mate Ashley Cole, whose contracts expire this summer, have both been linked with moves to Old Trafford.And Wilkins, who joined United from the Blues in 1979, is convinced Lampard would be a success were he to make the switch.Wilkins said: “He’ll win them [United fans] over because of his footballing ability.“If you look at Old Trafford, if anything they lack goals from the middle of the pitch.“They’ve got goals coming from everywhere else – full-back, centre-half – but from the middle they are not scoring as regularly as when Paul Scholes was a tad younger.“Frank will guarantee you goals because he has that knack of arriving at the right situation and the right time to put the ball in the back of the net, and he finishes like a forward.“Frank has been an unbelievable servant to Chelsea and I honestly felt they would have given him maybe a year or two more.“They have obviously decided to take a different look at the way things are going at Stamford Bridge and alter their philosophy.”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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
