Thunder guard Brewer questionable for opener against Utah


first_imgScientists seek rare species survivors amid Australia flames Truck driver killed in Davao del Sur road accident The injuries could force 19-year-old rookie Terrance Ferguson into a more significant role. Ferguson has 12 starts this season and averages 3.1 points for the season. He’s an explosive dunker and an improving 3-point shooter.“Eighty-two games, I think, has helped him,” Donovan said. “He’s obviously been able to be in the rotation. I think that was really important during the year.”Donovan didn’t say how he would adjust if Brewer and Abrines are unavailable. He said Ferguson’s mental approach will help him if he is given more responsibility.“He’s done a really good job of keeping himself ready and focused,” Donovan said. “Obviously, the playoffs are new for him. This is the first time he’s going through it. I’ve got a lot of confidence in Terrance just because of his competitiveness and how hard he works, and he’s a bright guy and will put forth a great effort getting himself prepared and ready to play.”ADVERTISEMENT Jo Koy draws ire for cutting through Cebu City traffic with ‘wang-wang’ Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Another Thunder shooting guard, Alex Abrines, is in concussion protocol.

Liberia Marathon Preparing for 2017


first_imgThe Liberia Marathon Trust and its organizing committee wishes to inform its many runners, partners, sponsors and the general public that the next Liberia Marathon will be held in 2017, with the specific date to be announced as soon as possible. “After the massive success of the 2015 Liberia Marathon, it was our hope to host a race in 2016 riding on the wave of our success in 2015. However, in order to continue providing a race of the highest international standard, additional preparation time is needed to take stock and build the strongest possible organization for the future. This is being done with a view to reaching out to more Liberians in Monrovia as well as in the rural communities.“We are confident that come 2017, we will be on track for one of the best Marathons ever organized in Liberia and the sub-region. To our runners, we urge you to keep yourselves fit in preparation for the 2017 Liberia Marathon; it is just around the corner,” said the Trust.“Last year, the Liberia Marathon organized its third edition of the most iconic of races, thanks to the support of our sponsors: Cellcom; Exxon; RLJ Kendeja Resort and Villas; Liberia Coca Cola Bottling Company; West Construction; Brussels Airlines; and Monrovia Breweries. We thank them for grasping and remaining committed to our vision of the Liberia Marathon as an instrument of Peace, Unity, Togetherness and Economic Growth. Also, our partners, which included the Monrovia City Corporation, Armed Forces of Liberia, Liberia National Police, Liberia Athletics Federation and the Liberia National Red Cross, provided immense support to ensure the success of the marathon.” In 2015, the Liberia Marathon celebrated a New Beginning. It was a special race as it was in celebration of the country’s victory over Ebola and a memorial to those who died as a result. It indicated a milestone in the development of Liberia, fuelling the rising self-awareness of a society and revealing their collective energy, which was mobilized to make change happen. “We are confident that come 2017 we will be ready for everything that this new beginning promises. All our efforts will be targeted to make the best Liberia Marathon ever a reality – we will go bigger and better than before. The Liberia Marathon 2017 will be a glaring landmark, being a symbol of a strong, determined and beautiful Liberia.”The Liberia Marathon is the only long distance race held in Liberia. From its very beginning in 2011, the organizers have been determined that this event becomes an annual fixture in the calendar of Liberians, tourist runners and elite athletes alike.“To our sponsors, partners and volunteers, we say again, a BIG thank you for believing in us, for supporting us and most importantly for wanting to do it all again.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Croatia’s fans disappointed but proud © AFP / Denis LovrovicZAGREB, Croatia, Jul 15 – Heartbroken but proud Croatian fans in Zagreb cheered and wept as their “heroes” went down 4-2 to France in the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday.On the final whistle applause from tens of thousands of Croatian fans rang out through the capital’s main Jelacic square as many lit flares and set off firecrackers. Fans cheered the players on a big TV screen in the packed square, as car horns began blaring on the streets of the Croatian capital.“Our boys gave everything on the pitch, till the last drop of energy,” Kristijan Strnic, 22, dressed in a red-and-white chequerboard jersey, told AFP.“It was a spectacular match, the nation is grateful, we are so proud of our golden team, they fought like lions,” he said.As a party began in the square to celebrate the team’s performance a distraught supporter Aurora Krnic said with tears in her eyes that the second place was “still fantastic”.“I am sorry for all the young people, the team made them so happy, but they gave their all, they are heroes to us,” she said.“Croatia can be proud, we should applaud our boys” said match commentator Drago Cosic on Croatian state TV HRT.“A big football nation managed to outsmart Croatia with pragmatic albeit dominant football, France remains a puzzle to solve for Croatia”.“The fairytale of the ‘Fiery Ones’ is over!” proclaimed newspaper Jutarnji List on its website.“Mbappe and Pogba, with the help of the Argentinian referee and VAR, left Croatia on the threshold of paradise”.“Croatia was just a step away from football immortality,” said the Index.hr website.“These boys are world champions for us, they taught us about heart and unity,” said Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic who watched the match with fans in a downtown fan zone.“We lived through a fantastic and unforgettable period for the whole of Croatia during this month,” he said of the Balkan nation with a population of just over four million people.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

DONEGAL HOMEOWNERS URGED TO TAKE PART IN GARDEN BIRD SURVEY


first_imgA leading bird expert has asked Donegal houseowners to let them know if there are no birds in their gardens!Birdwatch Ireland are about to launch their annual ‘Garden Bird Survey; which will last six weeks from December 1st.The data compiled will be used to generate statistics which is used to gather useful information on the patterns of Ireland’s bid population. Last year more than 1,000 homeowners took part in the survey which listed all the birds visiting people’s garden across the country.And the survey showed that the Robin is still king of Irish gardens with it coming out on top of the survey every year since 2006 with the Blackbird and Blue Tit coming in close behind.Niall Hatch of Birdwatch Ireland appealed to as many people as possible to take part – even if they never see any bidrs in their gardens.“A lot of people say to me that they never see birds in their garden and will not take part in the survey. “But we want to know which gardens in which areas are not attracting birds and find out why. That is the whole idea of the survey so we can research these questions and get answers,” he said.Mr Hatch urged people to begin to leave out food for birds now that the weather has suddenly turned cold depsite an unusually mild Autumn.However, he asked them to choose the right food in case they poisoned Ireland’s rich array of garden birds.“People can lave out peanuts but not salted peanuts as birds don’t like salt.“Animals fats can be left out as well as various other seeds which can all be purchsed in pet food stores and from Bidrwatch Ireland. “People shouldn’t leave out things like ric because it is simply too dry for our garden birds and always leave out plenty of water.“It’s starting to get cold now and people should begin to see a lot more birds coming into their gardens,” he said.DONEGAL HOMEOWNERS URGED TO TAKE PART IN GARDEN BIRD SURVEY was last modified: November 27th, 2014 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)Tags:Birdwatch Irelanddonegalgardensrobinlast_img read more

‘TYRONE STAR TAUNTED ME ABOUT WINNING 3 ALL-IRELANDS’ – McGEE


first_imgDONEGAL star Eamon McGee has spoken of his desire to win more All-Irelands – after being taunted by one of Tyrone’s greatest players.The Gaoth Dobhair man said Brian McGuigan boasted about having three medals.“I remember last year against Tyrone and myself and Brian McGuigan were having a tit-for-tat. He said to me, ‘No matter McGee, I will still have three All-Ireland medals,” said Eamon today. “And he’s right. When you’re playing at the top level the currency is medals, All-Ireland medals, provincial medals that’s how the great teams will be remembered.”In an interview with the Irish Sun, McGee spoke of his desire to win back-to-back All Irelands with Donegal.“It’s incredibly hard. It’s very, very tough to do,” he said.“But it’s all about goal-setting. Now we have the All-Ireland, we need to change the goal to retaining it and actually working hard towards it. “This requires a different frame of mind. You have to approach it like what we did last year will not be good enough to retain it.“You have to find another level. And there’s no better man than Jim to help you. Jim talked about a few of the squad only playing to 60 or 70 per cent.“It’s up to them to push on and not be looking to Karl Lacey or Michael Murphy or whoever else to carry you. You have to get every man up at the All-Star level.”The Gaoth Dobhair player also laughed at suggestions that Jim McGuinness’s part-time role with Celtic was affecting Donegal.“One of the lads was asking me if I have seen less of him. Unfortunately not! Since the new year started he has been there every time training has been on. “If he’s not, we have Rory Gallagher and Maxi Curran. They’re more than willing to step it up. Since the team holiday to Dubai everyone has knuckled down.“Last year after each game Jim wasn’t happy. I’m sure once we start, we’ll soon look at the All-Ireland final against Mayo and say, ‘What went wrong?’ and ‘Why did we not drive on when we could?’”‘TYRONE STAR TAUNTED ME ABOUT WINNING 3 ALL-IRELANDS’ – McGEE was last modified: January 27th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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)Tags:’TYRONE STAR TAUNTED ME ABOUT WINNING 3 ALL-IRELANDS’ – McGEEDonegal GAAlast_img read more
