Butler impact on Wolves starts with leadership, toughness

Jo Koy draws ire for cutting through Cebu City traffic with ‘wang-wang’ Green group flags ‘overkill’ use of plastic banderitas in Manila Sto. Niño feast “He’s changed everything for us,” said coach Tom Thibodeau, without a hint of hyperbole.Butler pitched in 31 points on Wednesday in the win-and-get-in, lose-and-go-home game against the Denver Nuggets that gave the Wolves a taste of the playoffs. He played 42 minutes.“He’s an animal,” fellow All-Star Karl-Anthony Towns said. “I don’t think anyone has ever thought anything else of him. He’s a cyborg from another place, built in the lab, and we’re very glad that we’ve got him.”Thibodeau, who has full control of the roster as president of basketball operations, was fixated last summer on reuniting with Butler from their time together with the Chicago Bulls. Not only were the Wolves in the market for another scorer around their cornerstone Towns and young wingman Andrew Wiggins, they needed a lock-down defender who could take on the opponent’s best player with unwavering confidence. Plus, his mental toughness was a critical component in the overall attitude adjustment of a team transitioning from low-pressure losing seasons to heightened expectations under the no-nonsense Thibodeau.“I wanted to go to a contender. I wanted to go somewhere where I was familiar with the coach, and being here was the perfect situation,” Butler said this week. “We have a young team. I don’t believe they know how good they are. I believe the city doesn’t know how good the team is. We can bring that excitement, not only to the team, but to the city.”ADVERTISEMENT Process no more: 76ers’ awaited playoff push starts vs. Heat Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew 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 MOST READ With Butler playing through back spasms, the Timberwolves lost at home to a Phoenix Suns team that ultimately finished with the NBA’s worst record.

They went 8-9 while he was out, nearly squandering their spot in the playoffs until reeling off three straight wins upon Butler’s return to end an NBA-most 14-year stretch of missing the postseason.

(AP Photo/Jim Mone)MINNEAPOLIS — The impact made by Jimmy Butler on the Minnesota Timberwolves was obvious from the start, transcending the two ends of the court where he’s made his mark as a four-time All-Star.Perhaps no better example of the leadership he contributed to a long-languishing franchise trying to find its way came during a three-day stretch in mid-December.ADVERTISEMENT Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ Truck driver killed in Davao del Sur road accident P16.5-M worth of aid provided for Taal Volcano eruption victims — NDRRMC Butler ranked fourth in the NBA this season with a 6.06 real plus-minus rating. That advanced statistic attempts to assess a player’s on-court impact on team performance as measured by net point differential per 100 offensive and defensive possessions, while also factoring in teammates, opponents and other variables. The only players ahead of him were Chris Paul, Steph Curry and James Harden.As the Wolves approach the daunting assignment of a first-round matchup with Paul, Harden and the league-leading Houston Rockets, the intangible contribution Butler can make to the cause is as valuable as any. His experience in the playoffs, with 38 career games, and his tenacity on the court provide the kind of comfort food a team can rely on against an opponent that beat the Wolves handily in all four matchups in the regular season.This leadership comes from others, too, with the summer additions of Taj Gibson, Jeff Teague and Jamal Crawford, and the recent signing of Derrick Rose coming in handy when Game 1 tips off in Houston on Sunday night.“You have to believe in your teammates. That’s why it’s good to have a coach like Thibs who comes in and gives you a strong talk, because he understands the reality of the game and the ups and downs of how the game goes,” Gibson said after practice Friday, before the team boarded a flight for Houston. “You’ve just got to go out there and fight.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Scientists seek rare species survivors amid Australia flames View commentslast_img read more

Top Doctor Dies from Ebola after Treating Dozens

first_imgFREETOWN, Sierra Leone (AP) — A leading doctor who risked his own life to treat dozens of Ebola patients died Tuesday from the disease, officials said, as a major regional airline announced it was suspending flights to the cities hardest hit by an outbreak that has killed more than 670 people.Dr. Sheik Humarr Khan, who was praised as a national hero for treating the disease in Sierra Leone, was confirmed dead by health ministry officials there. He had been hospitalized in quarantine.Health workers have been especially vulnerable to contracting Ebola, which is spread through bodily fluids such as saliva, sweat, blood and urine. Two American health workers are currently hospitalized with Ebola in neighboring Liberia.The Ebola outbreak is the largest in history with deaths blamed on the disease not only in Sierra Leone and Liberia, but also Guinea and Nigeria. The disease has no vaccine and no specific treatment, with a fatality rate of at least 60 percent.In a statement released Tuesday, airline ASKY said it was temporarily halting flights not only to Monrovia but also to Freetown, Sierra Leone. Flights will continue to the capital of the third major country where people have died — Guinea — though passengers departing from there will be “screened for signs of the virus.”Passengers at the airline’s hub in Lome, Togo also will be screened by medical teams, it said.”ASKY is determined to keep its passengers and staff safe during this unsettling time,” the statement said.Binyah Kesselly, chairman of the Liberia Airport Authority board, said police are now present at the airport in Monrovia to enforce screening of passengers.”So if you have a flight and you are not complying with the rules, we will not allow you to board,” he said.The measures follow the death Friday of a 40-year-old American man of Liberian descent, who had taken several flights on ASKY, causing widespread fear at a time when the outbreak shows no signs of slowing in West Africa.Patrick Sawyer, who worked for the West African nation’s Finance Ministry, took an ASKY Airlines flight from Liberia to Ghana, then on to Togo and eventually to Nigeria where he was immediately taken into quarantine until his death.His sister had died of Ebola though he maintained he had not had close physical contact with her when she was sick. At the time, Liberian authorities said they had not been requiring health checks of departing passengers in Monrovia.The World Health Organization says the risk of travelers contracting Ebola is considered low because it requires direct contact with bodily fluids or secretions such as urine, blood, sweat or saliva, experts say. Ebola can’t be spread like flu through casual contact or breathing in the same air.Patients are contagious only once the disease has progressed to the point they show symptoms, according to the WHO. And the most vulnerable are health care workers and relatives who come in much closer contact with the sick.Still, the early symptoms of Ebola — fever, aches and sore throat — mirror many other diseases including malaria and typhoid, experts say. Only in later stages of Ebola do patients sometimes experience severe internal bleeding and blood coming out of their mouth, eyes or ears.At the Finance Ministry where Sawyer worked, officials announced they were temporarily shutting down operations. All employees who came into contact with Sawyer before he left for Nigeria were being placed under surveillance, it said.In West Africa medical facilities are scarce and some affected communities have in panic attacked the international health workers trying to help them.Despite the heightened precautions and reassurances from health workers, many Liberians said they were still fearful of contracting Ebola through casual contact.Garmie Gayflor, a hotel waitress, said that poverty made Liberians especially vulnerable. The country was battered by back-to-back civil wars between 1989 and 2003.”One does not have a car, and they say sweat from one affected person affects the others,” she said. “We have six to seven persons riding in the back of a taxi or bus.”___Larson reported from Dakar, Senegal. Associated Press writers Jonathan Paye-Layleh in Monrovia, Liberia; Youssouf Bah in Freetown, Sierra Leone; and Erick Kaglan in Lome, Togo contributed to this report.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Bodies of Drowned St John River Victims Recovered

first_imgThe lifeless bodies of the four persons drowned in the St. John River between Nimba and Bong Counties on May 31st have been recovered.Their remains were found following a vigorous search over the past several days.Police sources told our Nimba County correspondent that two of the four missing people’s bodies were discovered on June 3rd around the same vicinity where they had fallen off the bridge into the river.The first two bodies recovered were Zawolo Duopleyee, 42, and his six-year-old daughter Grace Duopleyee. The bodies of his wife Oretha Duopleyee and the motorcyclist Emmanuel Yini, were found further downstream.The four persons, on Saturday, May 31st went missing after the motorcycle transporting them across the bridge plunged into the St. John River linking Nimba and Bong, around the Township of Douh in the Maipea Mah Administrative District in Nimba County.According to police, Zawolo Duopleyee, along with his wife and daughter, was riding on the motorbike heading for the Bong County town of Botota to attend the post-burial feast of his wife’s late father.On the bike, they also had a half bag of rice and a pig that they were carrying for the festival. An eyewitness on the scene said when the bike rider lost control of his bike midway on the ArcelorMittal access bridge linking the two counties, and all of them were plunged into the river. All the deceased were from Banakpalah town, 15 kilometers north of where the accident occurred.The access bridge over the St. John River has no railing guard on either side. It is also open in the middle with only three or four planks on each side. The bridge is therefore better suited for vehicles than for bikes.Our correspondent said because the bridge offers a shortcut from Nimba to most Bong and Grand Bassa Counties towns, commercial drivers prefer to use it instead of the main road that links Ganta and Gbarnga, two of the biggest cities in both Nimba and Bong respectively.Last year, a mini truck known locally as ‘Kia motor’, nearly fell into the river with marketers from Ganta while en route to Zoweita when one of the planks on the bridge collapsed.According to our correspondent, latest information suggests that ArcelorMittal has brought in all materials to construct guard rails on the bridge.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Police promote 187 ranks

first_imgAs part of its 177th Anniversary celebrations, the Guyana Police Force has promoted some 187 Policemen and women to a higher rank.Police Commissioner Seelall Persaud promoted ranks of the Regular Force, Special Constabulary, Guystac and Rural Constabulary in recognition of their hard work and dedication to the job and the people of Guyana.The promotions will take effect from July 16.Police Commissioner Seelall PersaudA total of 46 Corporals were elevated to the rank of Sergeant. This includes 16 female officers.Some 60 officers were promoted to the rank of Corporal. There were 36 Constables, of which seven were females, and 24 Lance Corporals, of which 13 were females.Meanwhile, another 33 Constables, inclusive of five females, were promoted to the rank of Lance Corporal.On the other hand, as it relates to Special Constabulary regular ranks, six Corporals were promoted to Sergeant, of which only two were males. In addition, six Lance Corporals and two Constables were elevated to the rank of Corporal. These include four female Lance Corporals and one female Constable.Moreover, there were two female ranks among 12 Constables who were promoted to Lance Corporal.In relation to the Guystac ranks, only two of them, both of whom are women Corporals, were elevated to the rank of Sergeant. Another two females; one Lance Corporal and one Constable, were promoted to Corporal. Additionally, two Constables have advanced to the rank of Lance Corporals.With regards to Rural Constabulary, the Police promoted four Corporals to the rank of Sergeant, while 12 Constables received promotion to the rank of Corporal. These were all male ranks.Last year, Commissioner Persaud promoted some 333 ranks in total.An internal board headed by the Police Commissioner is responsible for making promotions of officers from the rank of Sergeant to Constable. Those from the rank of Inspector to Assistance Commissioner of Police (ACP) are promoted by the Police Service Commission (PSC). Meanwhile, the appointments of Deputy Commissioner and Police Commissioner are done by Government.However, senior ranks of the Police Force were left disappointed after the PSC announced in December that annual promotions, which are usually declared in December or early January, have been delayed until February 23, 2016.However, those ranks from Inspectors and upwards are yet to know whether they have elevated or not, since those promotions have not been announced. It was reported that the final list of promotions were handed over to President David Granger, Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan and Police Commissioner Persaud.In December 2015, General Secretary of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Clement Rohee had called for Police promotions to be put on hold citing the high number of disciplinary matters pending. Days later, the PSC announced that it was putting a hold on the promotions, explaining that the list of nominees for promotion was submitted late.last_img read more

CSUN graduates overcome challenges to earn diplomas

first_imgNORTHRIDGE – Some 9,200 students will be graduating this week from California State University, Northridge, in ceremonies marked by pageantry and tradition, excitement and joy. And each of the graduates encountered roadblocks, overcame challenges, achieved goals. Amid the sea of caps and gowns are individual stories of the triumph of the human spirit over unexpected adversity and challenges. Here is a glimpse of some of them: Carlos Moran vividly recalls being in junior high, when he decided to turn away from a life of gangs and drugs and toward a future in which he could make something of himself. In addition to his siblings, Moran wanted to make a difference in the lives of other young kids who came from similarly troubled backgrounds, and he has been working at the Rancho San Antonio group home for five years as a mentor and tutor to troubled teenage boys. “He is an inspiration. The kids love him and see him as a role model,” said Adrienne Koroshec, a program coordinator at Rancho San Antonio. “He doesn’t get paid a whole lot to be here. He truly cares about the future of the boys.” His brothers and sister are definitely coming to see him in his cap and gown accepting his diploma this week. “They’re really excited,” Moran said. “I feel proud, but more of them, because they’re thinking about college and want to go; they’re doing well in school. “I feel like I did a good job.” Chris Vergien spent his adult life stationed at far-flung Air Force bases in South Korea, Japan and Afghanistan. But it’s the last three years spent at CSUN that the budding physicist considers the most challenging time of his life. Unlike the typical college student who takes at least four years to graduate, Vergien had to map out a college career that would span just three years. “I thought working was hard, but trying to balance schoolwork, military requirements and family was the hardest thing of my life,” said Vergien, 31, of Topanga Canyon, who is graduating second in his class with a bachelor’s degree in physics. “It was countless nights of very little sleep, working all day some Saturdays on one or two physics problems and having to take summer classes, too. “But it’s exciting to know I finished it. I never expected to become a physicist in the Air Force.” Vergien’s graduation isn’t the only thing he’s celebrating. He and his wife welcomed a son into their family on May 22 – just as they were packing to move to Albuquerque, N.M. where Vergien will work as a scientist in the space division at Kirtland Air Force Base. And with his diploma almost in hand, Vergien is already looking ahead to earning his master’s and doctorate degrees. “I never know where I’m going to be and where I’m going to go and what’s in front of me,” Vergien said. “But I’m excited to find out.” Carol Higgins’ idyllic life was shattered in 1998 when her husband died of a heart attack, leaving her to raise their 11-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter. Just 35, she struggled for two years with the drastic changes in her life, while the rest of the world moved on around her. In 2000, she decided to get her life back on track and resume her college career, which had been interrupted when she married at age 19 and began her family. Higgins attended community college for two years, then enrolled at CSUN, where she is graduating with honors with a bachelor’s degree in theater arts. “I went to school because I wanted to be able to know I could get a job someplace, but it was really a place for me to just recompose, reinvent, restart a new life and really do something I’ve always dreamed of doing, which is performing, being in theater, acting, singing and writing,” said Higgins, now 43. “It was almost like therapy for me, a place to get lost in philosophy, in theater, in the arts, in music, in acting, and it helped me in so many ways.” Higgins said her parents – and creative scheduling – helped her balance the responsibilities of raising her children, running a household and attending college. While her son played roller hockey and ice hockey at 4 a.m., she’d use the time to study. When her daughter was in a dance class, she’d be doing homework in the car. In fact, the adversity brought out a woman Higgins didn’t know was there. “I always think if Mike came back today, he would not recognize me. He would not know this new woman,” she said. “I’m stronger than I ever thought I was.” The tragedy brought her family closer together, and 15-year-old Chelsey said watching her mom persevere has been inspiring. “She’s my role model and I want to be just like her,” Chelsey said. “She showed us to never give up and that you can always conquer anything you put your mind to even if there are obstacles in the way.” Now, the Santa Clarita Valley resident says she’s working with a couple of people to start a theater company. One of her biggest goals is to work in television and film, and eventually she wants to go back to school to get her master’s degree in writing and directing. “I’m a big believer today, after my experience, that there is always a mystery in everyone’s life and I’m waiting for it to be revealed,” Higgins said. “There is a femme fatale in me and I’m telling you, she’s got to come out.” (818) 713-3721160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Now 23, Moran is graduating with bachelor’s degrees in Chicano studies and child and adolescent development, as well as a minor in psychology. He now plans to work toward a master’s degree in social work from the University of Southern California. “The turning point was when I saw my younger brothers reflect my actions. That was a reality check that we shouldn’t keep this cycle going. We had to break it,” said Moran, who lives in Northridge. Moran entered foster care at age 11 in Paso Robles. Without parents or an extended family, Moran said the hardest part of being in the foster care system was making sure he stayed in touch with his sister and three brothers. “That’s been the main reason why I’ve attained higher education and will continue it, because I knew that being in the foster care system wouldn’t be anything positive for them. I was the only real positive role model they had,” Moran said. “By me setting an example, I would hope they’d follow in my steps.” last_img read more


first_imgFinn Harps continued a miserable trend with a third consecutive home draw against fellow strugglers Salthill Devon at Finn Park as both sides ended the game with ten men.In a slow-burning second half, Victor Collins picked up two bookings in the space of a minute before Marc Brolly was shown a straight red-card just six minutes later.Both teams are now without a win and they remain in the bottom three of the first division as a result.Experienced duo Conor O’Grady and Kevin McHugh gave the hosts a welcome boost, after they both came through late fitness tests to lineout, while Mark Forker returned to the starting XI following his three-match suspension. Still missing the likes of Tommy Bonnar and Gareth Harkin, Harps were comforted by the return to fitness of Christy Connaghan, who made his first start of 2011 after re-signing from Fanad United in the closed-season.Salthill travelled north with only a point to show from their previous five league games, scoring just two goals along the way and suffering 3-0 defeats in both away games, against Limerick and Monaghan.Neither side were able to put their stamp on a first-half littered with poor decision-making, woeful ball retention and a litany of offside calls.Nearly half an hour went by before either goalkeeper was called into action as Kevin McHugh brought down a long free-kick from Ciaran Coll before swivelling and letting fly with a half-volley, which proved to be simple enough for Bernard Power to keep hold of. After a bright opening, Salthill came back into the game late in the first half and the home side needed some fine backtracking work from James Doherty and Keith Cowan to thwart Etanda Nkololo and Victor Collins, following a quick counter from the visitors.The two best chances of the opening period came two minutes before the break, with Nkololo crashing the top of the crossbar with an audacious thirty-yard lob that had Ciaran Gallagher beaten all-ends-up, while Marc Brolly headed straight into the arms of Power from a delicious Connaghan inswinger. The home side upped their game threefold after the break and should’ve had the lead two minutes in when Marc Brolly, lively and demanding throughout, blazed a twelve yard shot high over the bar following a headed knock-down from Kevin McHugh.Salthill, while lacking some of the energy of the first period, continued to be threatening on the break, with Rupa forcing Gallagher into a near-post save after Nkololo set him free with a wonderfully instinctive first-time pass. With less than twenty minutes to go, Harps were handed a numerical advantage after Victor Collins picked two yellow cards inside a minute.The striker was first to go into referee John McLaughlin’s book following a late tackle on Ciaran Coll but instead of walking away quietly, he decided to get under his skin and was duly given his marching orders for needless dissent. Just six minutes later, however, Harps also found themselves down to ten men when, after losing control of the ball, Marc Brolly went off the ground with a two-footed lunge, clattering into Cian McBrien.There was no malice in the tackle but the winger could have no complaints as he became the third Harps player in three consecutive home games to get sent off.Finn Harps: Ciaran Gallagher; James Doherty, Packie Mailey, Keith Cowan, Ciaran Coll; Mark Forker, Conor O’Grady, Raymond Foy; Christy Connaghan, Kevin McHugh, Marc Brolly.
