MOST READ Curry, who recently returned after sitting out 11 games with an injured groin, got going after missing six of his first nine shots. He made a pair of 3s and scored 14 points in the third quarter, including Golden State’s final nine of the period, and then made consecutive shots from deep after the Timberwolves closed to 101-93 in the fourth.Thompson and Durant provided plenty of support. It’s the fourth time this season that the trio has scored 20 or more points in the same game.Curry is averaging 31.4 points in five games since coming back from the injury.“We were trying to do a lot in the first half just because we had another playmaker out there,” Curry said. “We were playing really, really fast and excited. Just had to settle in and make the simple play. In the second half we kind of slowed down.”Green, the 2017 NBA Defensive Player of the Year, had seven points, 10 rebounds and seven assists after being sidelined for 11 games with a right toe injury. He made his first shot, a 3-pointer, and then playfully challenged the Timberwolves to come guard him.ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew View comments
The leader of the Liberia Transformation Party (LTP), Rev. Kennedy Sandy, says that Liberia has made more gains in the fight against the deadly Ebola virus and must continue.Making the statement over the weekend in the Air Field Community, the LTP leader emphasized that the war against the virus was not over and called on Liberians to ensure that the country is free of the epidemic as the spread of the virus could return.Rev. Sandy observed that, “In the midst of the national health crisis, political tensions had grown very high and continue to rise to exacerbate the health crisis. (While) exercising our political franchise and constitutional rights, we must continue to observe the preventive measures of the virus.”In the process of electing the 15 lawmakers in the ensuing election, he believes it is important for every Liberian to act in the confines of the law.He explained that the special senatorial election is necessary for the smooth running of Liberia but must not create any condition that would lead to further spread of the epidemic.“It is also constitutionally mandated that the election is held in a free, fair, transparent and credible as well as a peaceful and democratic atmosphere. This will reflect the authentic views and choices of the people of Liberia and a clear representation of each county,” said the LTP leader.He admonished that the efforts and support of the World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations, the United States, China, European Union and the Centers for Disease Control as well as other experts around the world, who have risked lives by joining Liberia and contributing immensely to the fight against the Ebola virus must not be wasted.The LTP leader warned the general public against engaging in any act that would undermine the fight against the epidemic, adding that Liberia has gone far in the fight and must continue until it is completed.He urged that the political parties, the election, the Government of Liberia and all senatorial candidates must be responsible to make sure that this election is fully participatory, inclusive, transparent, impartial and free.“As we elect our 15 senators, let us not do any thing that would place the life of our people in danger or put the citizens at risk. Liberia faces constitutional challenges today as we go into this election. The people own the country and have the right to change whatsoever they want to change,” he stressed adding that while Liberia goes through political recuperation, Liberians should show political maturity.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Make me the boss, and I would: Encourage the Anaheim Angels’ owner Arte Moreno to support his high-priced off-season free agent acquisition, Gary Matthews Jr., rather than issue a grand-standing public statement for Matthews to come clean to investigating authorities about his alleged purchase of human growth hormone from an Internet pharmacy outlet. I understand that Mr. Moreno’s desire to maintain the pristine image of the Angels, but abandoning one of his players with a politically correct PR gesture is a crass form of employee betrayal in my view. I mean, considering the entire performing-enhancing drug controversy has been media-generated out of all reasonable proportion – I had overwhelmingly strong suspicions that both Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire were using steroids in their historic 1998 home-run race and didn’t care and still don’t – I understand Matthews’ cautious response and his hiring of famed attorney Robert Shapiro. Our beloved governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, won seven Mr. Olympia titles using them, even once told me so. I don’t know if Gary Matthews used HGH and, frankly, I don’t care, which once again puts me slightly out of rhythm with my media cohorts, who, of course, are endowed with far greater values and virtues and pieties than I ever have possessed and, therefore, feel quite secure in their finger-wagging excesses over a matter the great athletic masses are about as indifferent about as I am. . . Force Messrs. Vic Cegles and F. King Alexander to bring back Larry Reynolds at least for another season if Long Beach State should win the Big West tournament this weekend, which it should do without much duress since the 49ers, clearly, are the best team in perhaps the worst Division I conference in America. How could they not? The 49ers figure to finish the regular season at 24-7. Oh, I know the basketball program still is hemorrhaging red ink and Reynolds’ overall five-year record still is quite unimpressive, but, well, the timing would be slightly askew to shove Reynolds out the door if he adds two more victories to his resume. Larry Reynolds deserved to be fired after three seasons in Long Beach when his record was 21-63, but was spared by the then dazzling 49er athletic director, Bill (Mr. Nice Guy) Shumard, who’s been long gone but whose sterling legacy – do I hear not so muffled cackles out there at such a daring adjective? – will long endure at the school. Reynolds doesn’t deserve to be fired if his team should emerge victorious in Anaheim over the weekend, which it should do because it happens to be so much more athletic and quicker and experienced than all the stiffs that pollute the Big West. . . Force the Lakers to stick a play-by-play guy on radio with a colorful personality. Perhaps I still pine for the late Chick Hearn, the greatest NBA announcer ever, but his successor, one Spero Didis, never has uttered so much as one memorable line that I can recall, quite a distinction in itself. Mr. Didis has a fine voice and, technically, calls a proficient game, but I find myself straying when he talks and paying attention only when Mychal Thompson chimes in with his insightful and humorous comments. . . Force Phil Jackson to force Kobe Bryant into becoming his old self-absorbed, self-centered, self-aggrandizing self and let him try to break Wilt Chamberlain’s storied 100-point one-game NBA scoring record. Why not? What drama is now left in the Laker season with Lamar Odom gone and the team stuck in the same conference as the Dallas Mavericks, Phoenix Suns and San Antonio Spurs? Bryant scored 81 a year ago, and could have had a lot more against Toronto. The Lakers aren’t headed anywhere now except for an early playoff elimination, so why not let Kobe be Kobe and allow him to shoot to his heart’s content for an entire 48-minute game?. . . Force the San Diego Chargers’ Owner’s Son Dean Spanos and his GM, A.J. Smith, to fire themselves if Norv Turner turns out to be as lousy a head coach with the Chargers as he was with the Oakland Raiders and Washington Redskins, which he will. . . Force federal authorities – the California State Athletic Commissioner certainly won’t look into the matter – to launch an investigation for the reason that a very tiny, very outmanned, very outmatched featherweight named Victor Burgos ever was allowed to challenge undefeated flyweight champion Vic Darchinyan Saturday night at the Home Depot Center. Predictably, Darchinyan mauled his beleaguered opponent from the opening bell until it was mercifully halted in the 12th, and it was almost inevitable that brave little guy would depart the ring in an unconscious state. He was transported to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance where he now is in serious condition after undergoing surgery to relieve pressure from a blood clot on his brain. It’s understandable Gary Shaw, who promotes Darchinyan and lined up Burgos, wanted a cushy setup for Darchinyan, but sticking Burgos in there against the taller, stronger and powerful punching Darchinyan was a scandalous decision on his part. Victor Burgos had as much business of being in the ring with Darchinyan as I did. If ever a sport deserves declining popularity, it’s boxing. Gary Shaw and those who manage Burgos should be held culpable for the tragedy that unfolded. . . See to it that William Jefferson Clinton, 42nd president of the United States of America, gives a nice mention during his Boys and Girls Club fund-raising speech today in Long Beach to Don Rodriguez, energetic president of the local organization, and Skip Keesal, a passionate booster whose law firm of Keesal, Young & Logan is hosting the event.. .

Why wouldn’t Matthews keep his mouth shut on the subject? After all, when a high profile baseball player’s name is linked to performance-enhancing drugs in these sensitive times, he knows what evil fate awaits on the dark horizon if the evidence comes up against him. Not only a 50-game suspension, which is financially punishing enough as it is, but also the inevitable pariah status that will be accorded him by the media, who have marched in a lockstep frenzy in visceral condemnation of those alleged felonious fellows (Bonds, Sosa, McGwire, etc.) who have dared trod down such a primrose path. The most retroactive outrage in the history of journalism has to be on the steroid issue, considering it has been a sacred part of the sporting landscape for decades but only became a serious matter until Sosa, McGwire and Bonds began depositing too many home runs for the media’s sensibilities. When I covered the Los Angeles Rams throughout the 1970s, it wasn’t exactly a secret that many players in the NFL used steroids, including I’d say about half of those on the Rams.
“Almost seven million Canadians are affected by adoption, and yet adoption remains one of the most misunderstood and stigmatized social phenomenon in our country,” she argues. “When a family opens their hearts and homes to a child that may otherwise not have had another chance at another family and a normal life, a positive change is made that lasts for generations to come.” Along with her adopted daughter, Geisbrecht and her husband have two birth children, are foster parents, and they are looking to adopt again. It could take a while, as due to a “bottleneck” in the system, adopting a child can take up to two years. “There’s currently quite a long wait time,” she explains. “Part of that is the government-mandated training. People are waiting seven, eight, nine months just to get into the training modules, so currently [the wait is] probably 18 months, possibly two years.” – Advertisement -Giesbrecht adds that out of the approximately 40 local employees of the Ministry of Children and Family Development, only one is an adoption worker. In addition to wait lists for training, that means delays in getting a safe home study. Hearts for Adoption recently met with Minister Stephanie Cadieux, where they were told she needs to hear from residents that they are concerned about the length of the adoption process. That prompted Fort St. John City Council to write a letter themselves, stressing the need to expedite adoption services in the province’s north. Advertisement The Adoption Council of Canada also reports that of the more than 78,000 children in Canada’s child welfare system, 30,000 are eligible for adoption, with the average age of children waiting for adoption being eight years old. “One of the most critical challenges we face in Canada is the number of children in our child welfare system, that are eligible for adoption, who are waiting desperately for a loving family to call their own,” maintains Giesbrecht. “Sadly, according to Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond, the B.C. Representative for Child and Youth Welfare, only 20 per cent of these children waiting in foster care in Canada will ever be adopted.” Anyone interested in learning more about adoption is encouraged to contact the local Ministry of Children and Family Development office.

Photo/NOCKNAIROBI, Kenya, June 13 – With less than 24 hours to the official opening of the inaugural Africa Beach Games in Sal, Cape Verde, the Kenya Beach Handball and the men’s soccer teams have set their sights on the podium finish.The teams arrived in Sal on Thursday ready for the competition that will see the men’s and women’s handball teams launch their campaign on Friday while the Soccer team will kick-off their tournament June 19. The men’s handball team has been drawn in a tough pool where they will face former champions Egypt and Nigeria, a pool that head coach Fareed Mohammed is optimistic of maneuvering through, especially now that none of the teams have a background of the other.“Almost a quarter of the teams that will be participating it will be the first time, so its not Kenya only, so the team has prepared well, and we are going to work hard to ensure we win. We have done our research well in knowing our opponents, so we are going to surprise them,” the coach stated. We have had three build up matches and we believe we selected the best.”His captain warned his charges against underrating any opponent, urging them to take a match at a time.“The preparations have been good, and we have positive mind towards the championship, and we believe we will bring the trophy home, we have bonded well, and we hope that the same spirit will continue in Cape Verde,” the skipper underscored.The women’s captain, Magdalene Muthoni beamed with confidence is looking forward to having a good performance.“We have trained well, and we are so prepared to go and win, we have monitored our opponents, learned new tactics and we are ready to take them on. On the pitch we are all equal,” Gathoni said.-Beach Soccer-Kenya will only be represented by the men’s team in the beach soccer who are not new in the game.The team has competed in various tournaments before, losing to Ghana in the qualifying competition and this time, head coach Rajab Babu said that will be a motivation as they head to Cape Verde.“From the preparations we have not had enough time to train, but we are happy for the opportunity to represent the country and I hope this time we will get a good result not like when we faced Ghana in the qualifiers. The boys are catching up very well, we played friendly matches against Uganda, Zanzibar and Tanzania that enabled us to improve on our mistakes.”0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)
“It looks like we’re pretty close to a floor level of purchase activity right now. Market uncertainty has squeezed out most discretionary buying,” Data-Quick President Marshall Prentice said. August’s median price increased an annual 2.7percent to $500,000 and slipped 1 percent from July. In Los Angeles County, sales fell an annual 34.4percent to 6,647 transactions but the median price increased 5.8 percent to $550,000. The price gain reflects more sales at the higher priced end of the market. After correcting for those price distortions, DataQuick said that in real terms prices across the region started falling in January and are now about 3.5 percent below the year ago level. The median price in Ventura County fell an annual 4.7 percent to $575,000 and sales declined 31.2percent to 789 transactions. The Inland Empire counties of Riverside and San Bernardino, hard hit by rising foreclosures, posted the biggest sales drop in August. In San Bernardino they plunged 47.2percent to 2,096 transactions and the median price fell 1.6percent to $360,000. Sales in Riverside County tumbled 46.4percent to 2,834 transactions and the median price fell an annual 6.1 percent to $394,523. Foreclosure resales accounted for 8.8percent of August’s sales activity, up from 8.3 percent in July, and up from 2.2 percent in August 2006. Foreclosures do not yet have a marketwide effect on prices, although foreclosure discounts appear to be emerging in some local Inland Empire and High Desert markets, DataQuick said. DataQuick analyst John Karevoll said that sales will remain low for the next six months or maybe longer and that prices will fall in most areas. The big question now is how much equity will be retained in the runaway price environment of the first half of this decade. “Do we keep 90 percent or 80percent of of that?” DataQuick analyst John Karevoll said. “For the vast majority of California homeowners that’s a pretty good problem to have.” firstname.lastname@example.org 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Wilcox STAFF WRITER Home sales plunged across Southern California to their lowest level in 15 years and prices declined in all but two markets as the nation’s growing credit mess bogged down more buyers, sellers and lenders, an industry tracker said Wednesday. The big Los Angeles County market also saw a steep sales drop but it did post the region’s biggest price gain, said DataQuick Information Systems. Last month, sales in the six county region plunged 36.3percent to 17,755 transactions and slipped 0.6percent from July, said the La Jolla- based company. That’s the smallest number of sales for any August since 1992, when 16,379 homes sold. The 1992 figure is the all-time low for any August in DataQuick’s statistics, which go back to 1988. The strongest August was in 2003, when 39,562 homes sold. The August average is 28,160 sales.
