Klay Thompson scores 35, Warriors force Game 7 in West finals

first_img“He’s devastated. He has to be. We’re all devastated for him. At the same time, we’ll rally and do what’s right,” D’Antoni said. “He’s so integral in what we do and the spirit of the team. And him being here is a big deal, and him being on the bench is a big deal. He’ll will us through, if he can.”Warriors coach Steve Kerr felt terribly for Paul — and others who have gone down.“More than anything, I feel bad for Chris. The guy is a phenomenal player and competitor, and pretty much willed his team the last two games. He’s just been haunted by these types of injuries in his career, and it’s a shame,” Kerr said.“I hate when anybody gets hurt. I hate when Andre got hurt. I hate to see Kevin Love last night, Kyrie (Irving). These guys train so hard and they’re here and they’re competing, and you want everybody to be healthy, but just the reality is it usually doesn’t work out that way. So you’ve just got to keep playing with whoever’s there and keep going.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next 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 View comments Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Ancajas outclasses Sultan in historic fight, keeps IBF super fly title He was a combined 20 of 32 from 3-point range in those two games.“I don’t want to go home,” Thompson said. “We worked too hard this season to go home.

Police probing bar manager’s death as murder

first_img…after PME resultsPolice detectives are now pursuing a homicide case after a post-mortem examination has determined that the Korner Kick Bar and Restaurant manager found dead in his bed could not have shot himself.The lifeless body of 21-year-old Tevin Parris was found with a gunshot wound to the head on Monday morning at his Lot 66 Garnett Street, Newtown, GeorgetownDead, Tevin Parrishome.Initially, investigators were treating the case as suicide since a 9mm pistol containing 14 live rounds of ammunition was found in his hand. Additionally, a matching spent shell was recovered from the scene.However, while the post-mortem examination revealed that Parris died as a result of a single gunshot, Government Pathologist, Dr Nehaul Singh, who conducted the autopsy on Wednesday morning, has found that the warhead entered the young man’s right nostril and exited the middle of the head.It was determined that given the trajectory, the gunshot wound “was not self-inflicted”.A Division (Georgetown-East Bank Demerara) Commander Marlon Chapman subsequently told Guyana Times that the probe would continue as a murder investigation.Parris’s body was discovered by his uncle some time around 07:40h. The Police had not ruled out anything despite the scene being consistent with that of a suicide, and the family members of the now dead man had maintained that he was murdered, saying he had no reasons to take his own life.Meanwhile, it was reported that the young man was not a holder of a firearm licence and as such, checks are being made to trace the ownership of the weapon. When asked about this, Chapman said that the Police were still trying to determine whether the weapon was licensed.In the meantime, the body of Parris has been handed over to relatives for burial.last_img read more

Race for Democratic nomination not over yet, Obama emphasizes

first_imgIt is not that the 200 or so people who turned out to see Obama on Friday morning were oblivious to such prognostications. As ardent political enthusiasts, many obsessively follow them. But the voters here have not necessarily become believers, particularly before they have their own chance to size up the competition when it comes to town. “The one thing about Iowa is that we always have the ability to bring a reality check to the country,” said Randall Rolph, 56, who came with his son to see Obama and plans to return Sunday when Clinton arrives for a campaign stop. Still, three months before the Iowa caucuses open the nominating contests on both sides of the ticket, a fresh sense of urgency is at hand for Obama as he tries to change the dynamic of the race. Clinton, who started the year perceived to be trailing Obama and former Sen. John Edwards in Iowa, has crept up in state polls. On a four-day tour through Iowa this week, Obama of Illinois continued to draw large crowds in city after city. He sharpened his message about his early opposition to the war, he devoted more time to voters’ questions, and he talked increasingly about the need for Democrats to choose a candidate who is honest, truthful and, ultimately, able to bring about change. With a newly crafted sales pitch, he acknowledged that he was “behind in the national polls,” and asked Iowans for their support. “If you’ve decided that you’re supporting me, don’t keep on waiting because it’s going to get chilly soon,” Obama said. “The fact is, all of you are going to decide who the next president of the United States is.” The Democratic presidential campaign, viewed in Iowa, is awash in uncertainties. Will Edwards, who started a 17-county bus tour on Friday, hold the supporters who propelled him to second place here in 2004? Will Obama turn his large crowds into real votes? Will Clinton’s national advantages assuage concern among some voters who worry how Republicans will go after her in a general election? Interviews with more than two dozen Democrats here this week suggest that the race remains remarkably unsettled, with voters voicing concern about Edwards’ viability, Obama’s experience and Clinton’s electability.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! NEW HAMPTON, Iowa – A broad grin spread across Sen. Barack Obama’s face as he turned to walk away from a city park here on Friday after shaking the last hand and posing for a final photograph with a clutch of supporters. Given the political news of the week, at least back in Washington, why the smile? “It’s not over!” Obama said, pausing for a moment to answer an open-ended question about the state of the campaign. “Presumably if they thought the race was over, they wouldn’t be taking the time to come to a town-hall meeting to talk about the presidential race.” If the chase for the Democratic nomination appears to have reached a stage of inevitability, if Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York is becoming a runaway front-runner, as national polls might suggest and some of her rivals are beginning to fear, the word has not reached the voters here in Chickasaw County. last_img read more

DONEGAL PRIESTS SLAMS EDUCATION MINISTER’S PLAN FOR SMALL SCHOOLS

first_imgA Co Donegal priest has slammed Education Minister Jan O’Sullivan’s plan to breathe new life into smaller schools.Fr John Joe DuffyStranorlar-based cleric, Fr John Joe Duffy says it has finally dawned on the Government the role such schools have to play in Irish society.But he says it is very clear the Government fails to be truly committed to the provision of education in rural isolated communities, in communities where we have minority faiths scattered over a large area and to communities that have a linguistic identity of their own. “Yesterday we got a press release from the department indicating their commitment to all of the above, today and tomorrow action is needed.“We have seen 4 years of wasted opportunity to develop and progress education in rural Ireland. It has amazingly taken 4 years to convince this Government of what is plainly obvious to all of us.“Whilst this announcement sounds good, I still believe it is full of empty rhetoric, lacks substance and the devil is in the detail. It is nothing more than a time buying exercise leading up to a crucial General Election,” he said.He added that the actual details provided go nowhere near to reversing the 2012 cuts introduced by Minister Quinn, which is the kernel of the problems and difficulties which these schools have experienced over the past 3 years. “I am not convinced that this announcement will create one new job nor will it give one red cent of extra funding to these already cash strapped schools.“The only new aspect of this announcement is that the Government now realise that the error of their ways in relation to rural education. They have once again failed miserably to provide any additional resources to support this sector.“I challenge the Minister for Education and her Department to acknowledge that the series of cuts since 2012, has impacted more severely and negatively on small schools, faith minority schools, Gaeltacht and rural DEIS schools.”And he adds that nothing short of a full reversal of Minister Quinn’s savage cuts will adequately deal with the problems that have arisen in rural schools since budget 2012.“Minister O Sullivan’s announcement yesterday is nothing short of a 3 card trick-aimed at making us believe that all will be well in rural schools, motivated in trying to convince rural communities that their schools will be better off and more secure in the future. “The Minister’s announcement,” Minister O’Sullivan outlines new policy to support sustainable school communities “, is catchy in title, long overdue for rural Ireland, but sadly lacks true substance and real additional financial resourcing.”DONEGAL PRIESTS SLAMS EDUCATION MINISTER’S PLAN FOR SMALL SCHOOLS was last modified: February 18th, 2015 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:educationFr John Joe Duffylast_img read more
