(AP Photo/Matt Slocum)PHILADELPHIA — Jimmy Butler and Ben Simmons have started wearing white headbands — yes, they are a headband of brothers — as a symbol of their commitment to defense. But the 76ers stars wanted to make more than a fashion statement — Butler and Simmons made a high-stakes pledge to D with a series of bets. Most steals. Most blocks.Simmons won the hand with two steals to Butler’s one block.ADVERTISEMENT Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title They all admire the way Butler has acclimated himself since his arrival last month in a trade with Minnesota. The Sixers are 13-1 at home and 8-2 since the Butler deal.“Jimmy’s an easy guy to have as a teammate,” Redick said. “He plays hard, he wants to win and he works his (rear) off.”Redick plugged his podcast, which drops later this week, for more of his thoughts on playing with Butler.Butler has tried to take Simmons under his wing and focus more on a defensive toughness. But they’ve been pretty good on offense, too Butler fed Simmons for a cutting layup in the first quarter and Simmons fed Butler on an alley-oop for an early spark.“He knows how to play the game the right way and he’s bought into our system,” Simmons said. “It’s been pretty quick to get better with him.”With the rest of the NBA on a run-and-shoot style of soaring scores, the Grizzlies are grinding out wins in a methodical manner. They kept within striking distance of the Sixers and pulled to 84-81 in the fourth and Marc Gasol hit a 3 to make it 92-84 before Butler pushed them back.Mike Conley scored 21 points and Jaren Jackson Jr. had 17 for the Grizzlies.“We’re not in panic mode at all,” Conley said. “We’ve built ourselves a good little cushion to have a little spell like this. Hopefully, we’ll just get back home, get back to work, get a few days in and get back together.”The Sixers had thumped New York by 16 and Washington by 25 as they rolled to the second-most wins in the NBA. Embiid and Simmons had formed one of the more potent 1-2 offensive punches in the NBA. Throw in Butler’s two-way ability, and the Sixers have a newfound toughness.“Whenever we’re leading the charge on the defensive end, everybody’s going to follow,” Butler said.

Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Team Lakay honored with ‘Champions Parade’ after title-laden year Butler didn’t need the final-minute theatrics to win this one. But he proved his worth and stunted Memphis’ rally.Simmons, who had 19 points and 12 rebounds on a sprained left ankle, ran up from behind on MarShon Brooks and poked the ball free for a steal. That led to a pair of free throws for Butler that made it 95-89. Butler buried a turnaround jumper for a 97-89 lead that sealed the win.“That’s what the team needs me to do late, close out a couple of games,” Butler said. “It didn’t come down to the buzzer-beater thing. I think all in all in the fourth quarter, I scored a few points.”Enough to take down Memphis.JJ Redick continued his late-career resurgence with 24 points for the Sixers and Embiid had 15 points and 14 rebounds.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIESlast_img read more

In Pro-Tempore Election: Candidates under Spotlight

first_imgThe race for the President Pro-Tempore position is gaining momentum as old and new senators are set to elect ‘the first among equals’ this week.It is now clear that the more than six names that emerged right after the Special Senatorial Election last December, have now reduced to three potential candidates vyingfor the post.From all indications, Oscar Cooper (Margibi), Joseph Nagbe (Sinoe) and Armah Zolu Jallah (Gbarpolu) are the three senators that are opting to occupy the Pro-Tempore vacancy. The following is a critical analysis of the track record of those wanting to lead the Senate as presiding officer.Margibi County Senator Oscar CooperSince joining the Legislature in January 2012, the Unity Party senator, a professional businessman, wasted no time in establishing himself as a seasoned politician.As an entrepreneur, his work outside the Legislature of creating hundreds of job opportunities for many Liberians has paid off for him.Sen. Cooper has encountered some difficulties in presiding over the committee on Public Works and Rural Development which entails providing direct oversight over the Committee considered‘critical and vital’ to the development agenda of the UP-led government.His work has been solid on committeeswhere he has the time to sit and work with his colleagues. However, for the last three years that he has been in the Legislature, his committee is one of several that have failed to provide annual reports to plenary detailing how its oversight responsibilities are being carried out. For the record, like all other committees, his has been able to present only confirmation reports to plenary.With respect to presiding over sessions, Cooper has never made any attempt to lead his colleagues as presiding officer even though he sits in leadership roles on many committees including, Ways, Means, Finance and Budget; National Defense, Intelligence, Security and Veterans’ Affairs; and Maritime.The job he is opting for requires one to know legislative or parliamentary procedures coupled with a thorough knowledge and understanding of the Senate standing rules and the Constitution of the Republic of Liberia.On many occasions, Cooper has been interrupted by his colleagues because he failed to support his arguments with references from the required instruments.He can be hailed for pushing the Decent Work Bill through the Senate, but again, ignorant of the body politics of the Capitol Building, he was beaten by his colleagues in the House of Representatives; thereby stalling the full passage of the draft legislation.His medical condition does not allow him to shout so most often when debates became intense, he tried to stay clear. As a prostate cancer patient, Cooper spent almost seven months on the sideline after going through a major operation in the U.S. last year.      Gbarpolu County Senator Armah Z. JallahJallah replaced Cllr. Eddington Varmah as Senator for Lofa County in a By-election in 1998. The creation of Gbarpolu in 1999 was the result of a pledge he made to his people.He is currently the largest private investor in Gbarpolu County with the construction of a 25 bedroom guest house in Bopolu City, a major gas station at Bomi and Gbarpolu counties North Western border.He contested the October 2005 presidential elections but failed. He was elected to the Senate in 2011 by his kinsmen.Sen. Jallah chairs the committee on Internal Affairs and, like Sen. Cooper, has never made any report to plenary besides confirmations. All committees are required to make annual reports to plenary about their oversight, but to date only Banking and Currency and Judiciary have reports in the secretariat.On two occasions, Senator Jallah declined to preside over session when the opportunities came his way; something his colleagues blamed on his ‘poor brain condition’.His committee is the only one that has brought the Senate to disrepute of late.When President Johnson Sirleaf nominated chiefs, district commissioners and superintendents to Gbarpolu early last year, Jallah misinformed the Secretary of the Senate that the nominees were denied, forcing Madam Sirleaf to re-nominate the local officials. Later it was realized that his committee did not report to plenary for action. He apologized and the matter was discarded.On another front, he misinformed the Senate about a situation involving him and Police Director Chris Massaquoi.According to him, Massaquoi obstructed his movement while on his way to session, an action that warrants Contempt.That again brought the Senate to disrepute when it was established in a meeting with President Sirleaf and Vice President Joseph N. Boakai at a local hotel that Senator Jallah was not on board his official vehicle but rather his concubine. In order to protect the image of the Senate, Madam Sirleaf then asked Chris Massaquoi to apologize and suspended him (Massaquoi) for one day.Sinoe County Joseph NagbeHe is by the far the most experienced senator, with 22 years at Capitol Building. He started as a Researcher and was later promoted to Senior Researcher. He can boast of being the only lawmaker in the Capitol Building trained by the U.S. Congress, having studied Law Drafting. He served as a member of the National Transitional Legislative Assembly (NTLA) and got elected as senator of Sinoe in 2005 with a second chance in 2011. As co-chair and chairman of the Judiciary Committee respectively, Nagbe has his signature on almost all of the 68 concession agreements signed under this administration of which only two met international best practice.  In so doing, the blood of the suffering masses is also on his hands.Nagbe, a seasoned lawyer is struggling with Diabetes which most times affects his attendance.On the issue of presiding over session, Nagbe acted many times in the absence of the Vice President, President Pro-Tempore and Chairmen on Executive and Foreign Relations, respectively.Under former pro-tempore Isaac W. Nyenabo, Nagbe presided several times when Nyenabo was away and even led the Senate under former pro-tempores such as Cletus Wotorson and Gbezohngar Findley.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

AU Chair Lobbies for Flight Resumption to Ebola Affected Countries

first_imgThe Chairperson of the African Union Commission, Madam Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, disclosed yesterday that she has been working behind the scene to ensure that regional and continental airlines resume flight to Ebola affected countries.The AUC boss said the outbreak of the Ebola Virus Disease has taken a hard toll on the affected countries in every sector, especially their economies, which for Liberia and Sierra Leone were just beginning to rebuild after devastating conflicts.Madam Dlamini Zuma, who is also the wife of South African President, Jacob Zuma, made these comments in the Foyer of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs when she along with President Sirleaf addressed a joint press conference in Monrovia, during a solidarity visit she paid to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and the people of Liberia.The AU Commission Chairperson noted that she was happy to be in Liberia, an opportunity she would also use to exchange views about the Ebola crisis, which would put the AU in a position to prevent the outbreak of similar infectious diseases in the future.Madam Dlamini Zuma, who earlier served the South Africa Government as Minister of Foreign Affairs and Health, told newsmen that she was frustrated by the action of some African countries to isolate the affected countries, something she said was not in line with African solidarity.It would be recalled several airlines, some owned by African states, including Kenya Airways, banned flights from coming to Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone for what they termed as fear of passengers from the countries transporting the virus to their countries.Even West African neighbors such as Ivory Coast and Senegal along with South Africa, where the AUC boss comes from, closed their borders to citizens of affected countries, a move that was heavily protested by the Liberian government and some internationally prominent individuals.She said bans imposed by airline owners and other countries, especially those on the African continent, is worrisome, looking at the implications that could such bans could have on these countries that are already going through a lot with the outbreak of the virus.Madam Dlamini Zuma, however, indicated that modalities are being worked out to ensure that airlines resume their normal activities; a development that urgently help affected countries in the recovery processes after the virus has been contained.“We have been working behind the scene talking to member states and airlines to see how we can get regional and continental airlines flying back to the Ebola affected countries.”The South African diplomat further indicated, however, that there are some constraints that need to be addressed in order for the resumption of flight to these states.“We are actually in talks with the airlines but they are saying that the problems are not with them but with other countries on the African continent.”“The airlines are saying that countries on the continent should be talked to because they are the ones who refused flights from these affected countries, from entering their countries. They are also asking us for the affected countries to put in place proper, adequate and efficient and rigorous screening infrastructures. So these are some of the constraints that we are going through now,” she said.Meanwhile Dr. Zuma lauded Liberians for what she termed as their resilience, strength and courage in fighting the deadly Ebola virus which is now stabilizing.She said from the onset of the outbreak, the AU tried and mobilized, and continues to mobilize human resources that would help in containing the virus. “We have ensured that a small team of health workers from the AU are on the ground in the three countries to help in containing the further spread of the disease,” she said.President Sirleaf, for her part, noted that the visit of Madam Dlamini Zuma, who is the first female Chairperson of the AU Commission, would add further impetus to a fight that has already placed Liberia at an advantageous position.President Sirleaf lauded Madam Dlamini Zuma for the level of support to Liberia and its neighbors since the outbreak of the virus.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

India’s 400m gold medalist (Hima Das) made me breathless for a moment

first_imgDear Editor,Breathless for a moment I was, to witness one of sports’ (track & field’s) historic moments, with India’s Hima Das’s memorable 400m under-20 win at the just concluded IAAF UNDER 20 CHAMPIONSHIPS IN TAMPERE,FINLAND 2018, which just came to a close a few days ago.For as long as I can recall, I have followed sports of many disciplines internationally, and Team USA has always been a favourite of mine over the years. However, when need be, credit is given to non-American athletes for their accomplishments.Hima Das of India has just qualified for such an accolade for creating history. I hope to witness her more in competition as we go forward.It was always “common knowledge” that Indian athletes could never rub shoulders with the rest of the world in track and field, but India has now proven to the entire universe that it is a myth, and they have just taken command as a leader in their own right.I hope India now has a master plan in store for their track sports, and we will witness more of Indian athletes qualifying for the sprints.This should also be an eye opener for potential track and field athletes of Guyana, and the competition has just been opened up wider.Her strategy for the win was awesome. I have always said that the 400-metre race is a killer race, and it matters not if you have speed or you are a strong runner, always keep something in the tank just after the final turn in that event, as you make the home straight to the finish line.Attached is a photo image of India’s 400m Champion 2018, Hima Das, which I am sharing from a news report via fb.Yours faithfully,T Pembertonlast_img read more


first_imgONE of Donegal’s leading judges has issued an open invitation to schools and other groups to come and see the working of the courts system.Circuit Court Judge John O’Hagan said it is very important that young people get a taste for what happens in court from an early age.“I would encourage all groups including schools and other clubs to arrange a trip to the courts. I think it is vitally important for young people to see justice happening before their eyes. “I think it gives them a healthy respect for the law and a better understanding of all the work that goes on in court from the court clerk to the Gardai to the jury.“If anybody is interested in bringing a group to court, then they should contact the court office and it will be arranged,” he said.Judge O’Hagan met with a group of students from Mulroy College in Milford last week and spent a considerable time during a court break in a questions and answers session.The trip was arranged by well-known local barrister Fiona Crawford whose friend Aisling Crawford is a teacher at the school. The visit was part of the group’s Civic Social and Political Education curriculum.A number of officers of the courts including registrar John Quinn, stenographer Tony O’Callaghan, senior counsel Cormac O’Dulachainn, barrister Fiona Crawford, solicitor Frank Dorrian, judge’s usher David Connolly and Judge O’Hagan himself outlined their roles to the students.The students also spent some time watching a live criminal trial.Teacher Aisling Crawford said the students had a hugely informative day and that she would recommend it to any groups thinking of a visit.JUDGE ISSUES INVITATION FOR SCHOOLS AND GROUP TO VISIT ‘LIVE’ COURT was last modified: February 16th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
