TNT, Ginebra out to break semis tie

first_imgSealing all possible gaps in the lane, the KaTropa leveled the semifinal showdown by humbling the Gin Kings, 103-96, on a road trip in Batangas City last Wednesday.Greg Slaughter and Japeth Aguilar, Ginebra’s twin wrecking balls in the paint, couldn’t split the space down low efficiently, allowing TNT’s defenders to clamp down on them easily.Even Justin Brownlee, who finished with a game-high 25 points, was smothered by TNT’s choking internal defense in the closing minutes when the Kings attempted to cut down a double-digit advantage.“I think in every position, we are outsized by Ginebra. When they play with a big lineup, it’s really hard to play them,” said Racela.Tony Semarad did an exceptional job on limiting Brownlee’s mobility inside while Kelly Williams and Moala Tautuaa had seven-footer Slaughter and the 6-foot-9 Aguilar in check.ADVERTISEMENT Nueva Ecija warehouse making fake cigarettes raided, 29 Chinese workers nabbed “No idea,” said Nash. “I know coach Tim (Cone) will do something. I’ll ask Olsen about it.”PBA legend Olsen is Cone’s assistant with the Kings. But he doesn’t have to spill any major secrets for TNT to figure out how it can gain control of the best-of-five affair.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smogThe Texters have been consistently holding their own against Barangay Ginebra’s imposing frontline and will again have to cut down the Gin Kings to size anew if they want to score a crucial Game 3 victory Friday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.“We always believe that we’re capable of beating Ginebra. But it takes a lot of focus and a lot of effort to do that,” said Nash. While containing these giants plays a critical role in scoring a win, TNT must also let quintessential playmaker Jayson Castro provide the leadership and make sure Glen Rice Jr. stays out of early foul trouble this time.“We have to stick to our rebounding and defensive game plan,” said Castro in Filipino. “We don’t want to get outhustled just like in Game 1. We should again come out with a lot energy.”Slowed down by leg cramps late in the final period, Castro tallied 20 points and 10 assists in his crucial matchup with Ginebra’s LA Tenorio.

Online training mulled for prisoners’ rehabilitation – Director

first_imgThe Guyana Prison Service (GPS) is considering the introduction of online training as efforts to rehabilitate inmates and reduce recidivism continues. This was disclosed by acting Director of the GPS, Gladwin Samuels, in a recent interview with the Department of Public Information (DPI).“I am quite sure, as it relates to broadband becoming something readily available across Guyana more and more every day, soon we will be able to tap into that aspect of training. So that those high-profile prisoners who we know are in need of exposure to training, but for various reasons cannot be placed into the general population, will be able to enhance themselves,” Samuels explained.In addition, the acting Director said this practice is already being utilised in facilities around the world. He noted that with the necessary precautions in place to prevent access to unauthorised websites, the introduction of technology-assisted training will reduce the hindrance caused by the unavailability of space for training within the prison facilities.Guyana Prison Service Director Gladwin Samuels“I recognise as well, they are making adequate use of that sort of technology, Internet-based training for inmates, where they have their own computer or tablet and a number of programmes are actually pre-downloaded to the instrument, which are prevented from accessing unauthorised websites,” the Director added.According to Samuels, the institution is also focusing its energies on attracting higher quality staff while providing training opportunities for those currently on staff, to upgrade their skill set wherever necessary and possible.“What we are also doing is ensuring that we do not only build the capacity of prisoners but also ensuring that staff is adequately exposed to training. This is not only institutional training but at the technical and tertiary levels so that they can be able to offer even more to those prisoners in terms of security. It is always important that we pay attention to security and we are trying to boost our capacity in terms of our intake of staff. We have 39 recruits currently in training.”Further, Samuels told DPI that, the Prison Service is in a better position to realise its role of inmate reformation. It has received assistance from the British Funded Security Sector Reform Project (SSRP) and the Inter-American Development Bank’s citizen Security Strengthening Programme (CSSP) toward this end.last_img read more

Child asphyxiated while “spinning” in hammock

first_imgA 12-year-old girl was on Monday afternoon found dead in a hammock at a neighbour’s home that she was visiting. Dead is Ashley Iyanna Agard of Lansdale Village, East Bank Berbice.Samantha Downer speaking with Guyana Times on TuesdayAccording to the Police, the former Vryman’s Ervin Secondary School student who did not attend school on Monday was found in a motionless state in the hammock.There are reports that a part of the hammock was wrapped around her neck. Her mother, Samantha Downer, told this publication that as she was leaving home to go to the hospital to visit her sister, she was summoned to the neighbour’s house.However, the woman explained that although she was running late, she went over. It was at that time she was told that something was wrong with her daughter.“When I go, I see her lying on the ground and I just pick her up and bring her home. She was not breathing. And my husband took her to the hospital.”The young girl was pronounced dead on arrival at the New Amsterdam Hospital.When Guyana Times visited the neighbour’s house on Tuesday, no one was at home but relatives of the neighbour remain tight-lipped on the matter.However, Guyana Times understands that the hammock had a large hole and a 4-year-old was spinning the hammock with the 12-year-old inside.The Police have since questioned two females as the investigation continues.Meanwhile, an autopsy performed on the body on Tuesday gave the causes of death as “Asphyxiation due to Broncho-aspiration of Gastric content”.It was revealed that Agard had hassar curry just before her demise and that might have caused her to stop breathing.

Rangers expect striker Martyn Waghorn to be out for a ‘number of weeks’

first_img Martyn Waghorn Rangers say striker Martyn Waghorn will be out for a “number of weeks” but does not need surgery on his injured knee.The 26-year-old went off immediately after winning and converting a fourth-minute penalty in their William Hill Scottish Cup win over Kilmarnock.Waghorn went down on the artificial surface after getting in front of Killie left-back Steven Smith and left Rugby Park on crutches.A Rangers statement read: “The knee injury Martyn Waghorn sustained in Tuesday night’s Scottish Cup win over Kilmarnock is not as bad as was first feared.“Martyn suffered the injury in the challenge that saw Rangers win their early penalty and although he recovered enough to score from the spot, he could not continue.“The initial impact on an unforgiving Rugby Park surface resulted in bruising and lacerations which were immediately visible.“However, thankfully the scan has revealed there will be no need for surgery, although Martyn will be sidelined for a number of weeks.“His rehabilitation will be expertly managed by the medical team and we look forward to welcoming him back sooner rather than later.”The former Sunderland and Wigan striker has scored 28 goals for Rangers this season. His replacement, Nicky Clark, hit an injury-time winner at Rugby Park. 1last_img read more


first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: While some of us who train know what to eat when it comes to nutrition, it can be as important to eat the right things at the right times, (before, during and after training), especially if you are an athlete or have specific goals aimed at body composition.I have picked up a few tips that I will share with you below from the Precision nutrition course that I am finishing and from Precision Nutrition’s Dr Krista Scott-Dixon at the European Conference that I attended a few weeks ago.It should be noted that if you are a healthy person and you eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly, you probably do not need Peri-workout nutrition. For people who play sports or compete in them, workout nutrition can be the feather in your cap that gives you the edge over the competition.However, workout nutrition isn’t a magic pill.Your entire diet needs to be right for workout nutrition to be effective.If you haven’t yet got a grasp on your general diet, concentrate on getting that right first and the look at workout nutrition.Recommendations will differ depending on the type of sport that you play and your own body type. The recommendations below will be middle of the road and can easily be adjusted.BEFORE TRAININGWhat you eat before exercise can make a big difference to your performance and recovery.In the 2-three hours before your workout, you’ll want to eat something that helps you to sustain energy, boost performance, hydrate, preserve muscle mass and speed recovery.For a male who is lean with a good amount of muscle mass, you want to have a meal with:2 palm of protein2 palms of vegetables2 cupped palms of carb dense foods.2 thumb lengths of fatsIn a meal this can be potatoes with chicken and veg and any oil used for cooking will be your fat, or if you steam or grill your meat, you can add a knob of butter to your potatoes and veg. If you are a female who is lean with a good amount of muscle mass, you would use that same guide, but reduce each portion down to one serving of each.For people who do not like eating before training, you can use a smoothie around 60 mins before training.The smoothie will follow the same guidelines as above and would look like this;1 scoop protein powder1 fist of veggies (spinach works great in smoothies) 1-2 cupped handfuls of carbs (mixed berries or a banana work great)1 thumb of fats (like mixed nuts or flax seeds)A low-calorie beverage like water or unsweetened almond milkDURING EXERCISEIntra-workout Nutrition is really only necessary for some people:Athletes doing long intense training bouts, people doing multiple daily training sessions, and/or people trying to gain significant amounts of muscle mass.If this isn’t you, you do not need intra workout nutrition.For people who do, endurance athletes and athletes with sports performance goals, you are looking at a Protein and Carb mix of around 2-3:1 ratio.That will look like a smoothie with 15g of Protein and 30-45g of Carbs.This should be sipped during the session for every hour of training you do.If you are trying to drop weight along with training, then 5-10g of BCAA’s will suffice during your session.Sports drinks can be used if your sessions are going to be 90+ mins or if you are going to sweat a lot during your sessions.Look for ones with added electrolytes for replenishing lost salts, hydrating and helping with recovery.POST WORKOUT NUTRITIONThe myth used to be that if you didn’t get nutrition into you 30 mins after training, then the session was practically wasted.This has been proven to be a myth.For all my bro’s out there, there isn’t an ‘anabolic window’ after training.While you don’t have to rush in the door and straight to the fridge the minute you finish at the gym, you still should be having something within 2 hours to speed up recovery.But this is context dependent; what you ate before your workout influences things.If your pre-training meal was a small one or you ate it several hours before training, then it’s probably more important for you to get that post-workout meal or smoothie into your system pretty quickly; usually within an hour of training.If you trained in a fasted state (say, first thing in the morning before breakfast) then it’s also a good idea to eat as soon after your workout as you can.But if you ate a normal sized mixed meal a couple of hours before training (or a small smoothie closer to training), then you have a full one to two hours after training to eat your post-workout meal or smoothie and still maximize the benefits of workout nutrition.The Post Workout meal would be structured the same for men and women as the Pre workout meal discussed earlier.This guide touches on the basics of workout nutrition.If you would like to know how to adjust this to your needs or on the best way to structure your diet for your goals feel free to contact me through the link below.#TrainSmart RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: WORKOUT NUTRITION EXPLAINED was last modified: August 23rd, 2015 by John2Share 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:donegalemmet rushefitness columnletterkennyNutritionlast_img read more

Couple arrested in death of baby found in trash bin

first_imgNEWHALL — A man and woman were under arrest today in the death of an infant found in a trash bin in Newhall two weeks ago, following a tip from a neighbor, possibly prompted by an offer of a $10,000 reward, a sheriff’s official said. Jaquelin Linaras, 22, and her boyfriend, Jose de la Cruz, 42, were arrested Tuesday night after sheriff’s homicide detectives searched a home at the Polynesian Mobile Home Park and left with several bags of evidence, including a section of carpet from a vehicle parked next to the home. “We had a press conference Monday that was very emotional,” said Capt. Patti Minutello. “I think people seeing the face of that little baby got them thinking and resulted in a tipster calling homicide yesterday.” Previously, the Santa Clarita City Council had offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to convictions in the case. Minutello said she the reward might have spurred the tip.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Kerri Webb said detectives obtained enough information to get a search warrant, which they served Tuesday night. According to Capt. Ray Peavy, head of Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau, the baby girl found wrapped in plastic bags and a blanket was the victim of traumatic injuries that resulted in her death. Both Linaras and De La Cruz are being held without bail at the Santa Clarita Valley sheriff’s station. They are scheduled for arraignment Tuesday in Santa Clarita Superior Court. The baby girl was the third found abandoned and dead in Los Angeles County so far this year, frustrating officials who cite the Safe Surrender Law. The state law allows for newborns to be left at fire stations or hospitals with no questions asked. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgThis evening (THURSDAY) will hopefully see the good times coming back to the O’ Donnell Park in terms of Ladies football.Following the success of the “Ten in a Row” years, we have encountered what could be called a “barren spell” in terms of Ladies Senior Football at the club.Hopefully this evening will come to an end, because if we win our last game of the season, we will win the 13 a side league. A lot of work has gone on behind the scenes, and being in this position is just reward for the likes of Suzi Tinney, Gabriel Flood and many other unsung heroes who have toiled away over the years to get the team to where we are today.The game starts at 6pm and all support will be greatly appreciated, so if you can, pop down and see the Ladies in action.EndsGAA: ST EUNANS LADIES FOOTBALL was last modified: August 4th, 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
