(AP Photo/Charles Krupa)CLEVELAND — Before any decision, LeBron James had a discussion with the Cavaliers.James was in contact with the team when NBA free agency opened on Sunday, a person familiar with the contact told The Associated Press. Shortly after the 12:01 EDT a.m. start, Cavs general manager Koby Altman spoke on the phone to both James and his agent Rich Paul, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the discussion.ADVERTISEMENT Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Harvey Weinstein rape trial Cloudy skies over Luzon due to amihan Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Now that some of the early dust has settled, the battle for him appears to be down to two teams: Cleveland vs. Los Angeles.Home vs. Hollywood.Wine-and-gold vs. Purple-and-gold.But while the Cavs and Lakers appear to be the front-runners for James, the Philadelphia 76ers aren’t ready to give up the fight. Well, at least young and outspoken center Joel Embiid isn’t.Embiid posted a message on Twitter that seemed to be directed at No. 23 and what it might be like to walk in the footsteps of Lakers legends like Johnson, Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West and Shaquille O’Neal.“The Lakers are FOREVER gonna be Kobe’s and Magic’s team,” Embiid wrote, referring to Kobe Bryant and Johnson. “Process that.”George’s move has given James more to process, but the chance to restore Los Angeles to prominence may be just what he needs at this point in his career.

James, who was in Los Angeles, is also being pursued by the Lakers, who have enough salary-cap space to sign him and another star player.While there was a feverish flurry of activity involving big-named players in the opening hour of what has been billed as the Summer of LeBron, James did not announce where he’ll play next season and it’s not known if other moves, such as Paul George staying in Oklahoma City and Chris Paul staying in Houston, have affected his thinking.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownJames’ discussion with the Cavaliers was first reported by ESPN.James isn’t expected to drag his choice out over several days.

But the All-Star forward opted to stick with the Thunder and will sign a four-year deal when teams are permitted to finalize contracts on June 6.George’s choice could sway James to sign a short-term deal with Cleveland, but the Lakers are determined to get their hands on the four-time MVP.The Cavs, on the other hand, have been mostly operating in the dark. While there had been dialogue between Paul and Altman since the season ended, James had not given the team any sense of his plans. That’s made it tough for Cleveland to upgrade its roster, but the Cavs remain committed to bringing back James even for just one more year.On Friday, James formally became a free agent when he informed the Cavs he would not exercise his $35.6 million contract option for next season, making him an unrestricted free agent and the prize catch in the 2018 class.ADVERTISEMENT Christopher Tolkien, son of Lord of the Rings author, dies aged 95 Taal victims get help from Kalayaan town Bicol riders extend help to Taal evacuees LATEST STORIES View comments MOST READlast_img read more

In solidarity with the teachers’ struggle

first_imgDear Editor,The GAWU one-day conference, titled “Sugar – too big to fail,” was held on September 04, 2018 at the Grand Coastal Hotel at Le Ressouvenir, East Coast Demerara. As it discussed the plight of the sugar workers, who are now jobless, it also took account of the ongoing struggles of our nation’s teachers, who at this time are seeking improved pay and working conditions.Several speakers, during their interventions, reflected on the strike action taken by the teachers at this time. Arising from those discussions, the Conference approved the following resolution in support of the teachers and their protest actions:-Whereas the teachers are in the forefront of educating our nation, and whereas the wages they receive cannot sustain them and their families;Whereas this Conference on the future of the sugar industry in Guyana recognises the need for improvement in the benefits of our teachers,Be it resolved that this Conference calls upon the Government to consider meeting the just demands of the teachers in an effort at ending the strike, or alternatively agree to take the dispute to arbitration.Moving the resolution was FITUG’s President Carvil Duncan, and it was seconded by GTUC General Secretary Lincoln Lewis, and was fully endorsed by the Conference.The GAWU also wishes to express its full solidarity with, and support for, our nation’s teachers, who are more than justified in their demands. They, like all workers and Guyanese, are only seeking to live a comfortable and fulfilling life, wherein they can afford the basic necessities.Sincerely,Guyana Agriculturaland General WorkersUnion (GAWU)last_img read more

Baby Bleus ‘must do better’ says France coach Deschamps

first_img0Shares0000France coach Didier Deschamps relieved his young France team came through a tough opener against Australia with three pointsKAZAN, Russia, June 16 – Didier Deschamps has told France they “must do better” after escaping a humiliating draw with Australia in a 2-1 World Cup opener decided by VAR and goalline technology.The tournament’s second-youngest team arrived in Russia with lofty ambitions 20 years after Deschamps captained Les Bleus to the 1998 World Cup title at the Stade de France. But going on their performance at the Kazan Arena on Saturday, Peru will fancy their chances of causing an upset when they face a side brimming with talent but lacking “fluidity” and “speed” in key departments against a tough Socceroos side.“It’s the World Cup, it’s the first match. But, yes, we must do better, and we can do better,” said Deschamps.Struggling to break down a tough and physical Socceroos defence in a frustrating first half, it took a first, historic VAR decision at the World Cup to hand France a lifeline.Following an underwhelming opening half, Antoine Griezmann stepped up to beat goalkeeper Mathew Ryan from the spot on 58 minutes after Uruguayan referee Andres Cunha used video footage to ascertain the Atletico Madrid star had indeed been fouled by Australia defender Josh Risdon.Although Australia captain Mile Jedinak levelled from the spot four minutes later following a handball by Samuel Umtiti, France snatched a lucky win when Manchester United star Paul Pogba’s deflected shot looped over Ryan in the 81st minute.The “job got done”, reflected Deschamps.But after highlighting opening match jitters, Deschamps refused to hit out at his misfiring front line of Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele and 19-year-old Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe.“It was nothing to do with the fact we have a lot of young players,” said Deschamps in defence of a squad which, after Nigeria, is the youngest at the World Cup.– ‘Lacked speed’ – “In our last four World Cup campaigns we’ve only won our opening match once (in 2014, against Honduras).“We’ve got the job done, because the first match is always very important, and this sets us up well for the rest of the group.“It was a difficult, complicated match against a tough Australian side.“But we lacked speed in terms of moving the ball around or getting forward and that benefited Australia’s game.“It wasn’t a great start for us… we should have pressed them a little higher, but even then we weren’t flowing well.“Australia might not be a top European side but we can’t say they don’t have some quality.”Although Griezmann wrote himself into the history books by becoming the first player to score at the World Cup from a VAR verdict, he suggested some of France’s World Cup débutants had suffered stage fright.“For a lot of our players it was their first match (at the World Cup), but we know that, technically, we didn’t play to our potential,” he said.“It was important to start with a win but we know there are a lot of things to improve, we struggled to find each other during the game.“But we have nearly a week before meeting Peru, so we hope to rectify that.”France last played a south American side three months ago, a 3-2 defeat to Colombia in Paris.Deschamps added: “Peru have a lot of quality. They’re a proud side who play with passion, and I’ve been told there’s 30,000 Peruvians in Moscow.“We played Colombia in March, so we know the South American mentality.“We have time, it’s Thursday, we’ll focus on recovering before thinking about our next match.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

PEOPLE IN DONEGAL TEN TIMES MORE LIKELY TO QUIT SMOKING WITH HELP

first_imgThe HSE Donegal Smoking Cessation Service has said that people in Donegal are 10 times more likely to quit smoking with the help of the free HSE face to face service.Best practice indicates the most successful way to quit smoking is by using evidence based treatment, such as Nicotine Replacement Therapy or Champix and behavioural support such as that offered by the Donegal Smoking Cessation Service so therefore anyone who signs up is giving themselves the best chance of quitting.Most tobacco users (70 %+) want to quit and most make between 5 and 10 quit attempts, if trying by themselves, before they are successful. Speaking this week Fiona Boyle, Smoking Cessation Advisor said they currently host 13 free clinics in various locations throughout Donegal to allow for easy access for anyone wishing to quit smoking.“Most of the clinics are located either in Primary Care Centres or Community Hospitals and clients can refer themselves or be referred by their Healthcare Professional. We often find that an individual might quit tobacco with our service and as a result of their success other family members or friends will then join, in fact 20% of our referrals have heard about us through their family or friends.“The programme consists of fortnightly appointments, with weekly phone calls in between, until the client is ready to quit tobacco. Following their quit day clients are seen regularly in the clinic and are offered appointments for up to one year after quitting,” she said.The following are the three main reasons why people continue to use tobacco: Addiction – The addictive nature of tobacco is discussed with each client and an assessment of their individual addiction is carried out. All the evidence based treatments are discussed and the most appropriate one for the client is chosen in consultation with them.Habit – The habitual nature of tobacco is discussed with each client and an assessment of their individual triggers is carried out. Clients are supported to look at alternatives to their normal routines in regard to smoking.Emotions – The emotional nature of tobacco is discussed with each client and alternative methods of coping are looked at.‘Tobacco use is the number one preventable cause of illness and premature death with 15 families losing a loved one to tobacco each day in Ireland.Also, there is no safe level of second hand smoke exposure which is why the HSE in Donegal has introduced the Tobacco Free Campus Policy in all Primary Care Centres and Community Hospitals since 1st June. The policy is helping to change social norms around tobacco use, treating tobacco addiction as a healthcare issue, and promoting smoking cessation by actively advising, encouraging and supporting people to quit smoking’.Fiona went on to confirm that recent figures show that ‘tobacco use is at its lowest level ever in Ireland with 19.5% of the over 15yrs old population currently using tobacco (21.6% of men and 17.6% women).“We know that there are a number of policies that are effective against the current tobacco epidemic. These include raised taxes, advertising bans, tobacco free policies and providing support for tobacco users who would like to quit. Our intensive face to face service is free and confidential to anyone who would like to quit tobacco, and we currently have 40% of our clients quit at one year which is an excellent achievement by international standards’.If you would like to find out more information regarding the 13 free face to face clinics in Donegal you can contact Fiona on 087 2514790 or Catherine on 086 0492465. The current clinic locations are in Buncrana, Carndonagh, Carrigart, Donegal Town, Dungloe, Falcarragh, Killybegs, Letterkenny, Letterkenny evening, Lifford and Stranorlar.You can also speak to your local GP, Practice Nurse of Pharmacist.Help is also available with the national QUIT support team on 1800 201 203 or www.quit.ie.PEOPLE IN DONEGAL TEN TIMES MORE LIKELY TO QUIT SMOKING WITH HELP was last modified: September 5th, 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:donegalHSEquittingSMOKINGlast_img read more

Love Life; Gift Life calls for organ donors

first_imgFounders of Love Life; Gift Life and lung transplant recipients (l to r) Shaylene Perry, Fawn Rogers and Siobhan Scallan have a second lease on life through organ donation. The fourth founder, Alice Voigt, is absent.Four women who have had organ transplants are on a mission to educate people about the importance of donating their organs when they die.Fawn Rogers, Siobhan Scallan, Shaylene Perry and Alice Voigt founded Love Life; Gift Life to heighten the level of organ donor awareness in South Africa.“We have all had transplants, lung transplants to be specific,” Rogers said. “I think when you go through something so life-changing you want to give back and we are giving back by raising awareness of organ donation.”According to Perry, thousands of people in South Africa are waiting for life-saving organ transplants yet not even 1% of the population is registered as organ donors.“This may seem at odds with the number of deaths reported daily in South Africa, but many potential donors go unrecognised by medical staff or donor families may deny consent if they are not aware of their loved ones’ wishes,” she said.It was important your relatives knew you wanted to donate your organs following your death.“A donor’s family ultimately has the final say regarding organ donation, so it’s imperative that the public make their next-of-kin aware of their wishes to be an organ donor,” Perry explained.Rogers echoed her words: “This is why our campaign focuses on getting the public registered as organ donors and for them to ultimately let their loved ones know of their wishes should they pass away.”Personal journeysThe four women who founded Love Life; Gift Life needed lung transplants for various reasons. Getting donor lungs and starting recovery has been a joyful experience.Rogers was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at a young age and had not been able to live a normal life until she got a donor in 2013.“The recovery was difficult but since I’ve been out I’ve had a completely new life. I have gone from being bedridden with tubes, relying on my mom, to working full-time,” she said.“I enjoy mundane things like going out for coffee and relaxing with friends and family. They also seem very happy to be able to do that with me.”Perry, who fell ill when she was 27, said: “My joy comes from now being able to be a mother and wife. There were years that going up the stairs was a mission and my daughter always knew mommy as being sick. Now I can be a mother to her.”Save 7 LivesOn 7 July, the foursome led the Save 7 Lives campaign on International Save 7 Lives Day to much success on social media. The campaign trended globally on Twitter.For the campaign, Love Life; Gift Life encouraged family and friends of transplant recipients to show their support for organ donation by posting a picture of themselves holding up a sign of support.Thousands of signs popped up on every social media platform and from all over the world.“This message is very important as it serves as a reminder to the public that being an organ donor affects more than just the organ recipient; it affects their entire family and friend circle,” Rogers said.“One organ donor can save up to seven lives but they can also positively affect hundreds of people and that is what our social media campaign is emphasising – the impact organ donation has on every day South Africans.”Campaigning aheadThe organisation will keep using social media to promote its cause but will also seek to do roadshows encouraging South Africans to register to be donors and reiterating that they need to tell their families their wishes.“Our campaigns are about hope,” Scallan said, “hope for the family, friends and the person who needs a donor. We are telling registered organ donors that they give hope to those in need of organs.”Follow Love Life; Gift Life on Facebook and Twitter and learn about its next campaign, taking place during August, National Organ Donor Awareness Month and Woman’s Month in South Africa.last_img read more

Salah Lands Knockout Blow as Liverpool Reaches CL semifinals

first_imgMANCHESTER, England (AP) — After two minutes, the comeback was on.Manchester City scored the early goal it needed. Just two more for one of the great Champions League fightbacks.Then Mohamed Salah intervened.With a typically deft finish, Salah made it 39 goals in a stunning first season at Liverpool and turned a potentially hazardous situation into a stroll at Etihad Stadium for one of the aristocrats of European soccer.Liverpool weathered a “whirlwind” start from City — as manager Juergen Klopp described it — to win 2-1 in the second leg of their breathless quarterfinal and advance 5-1 on aggregate on Tuesday.“I really think they are the best team in the world at the moment,” Klopp said of City. “But I knew we could beat them. That doesn’t make us the better team, but it’s football. It’s the cool thing in the game, that it’s still possible.”City’s players gave it everything but were left in a precarious position because of the 3-0 loss in the first leg at Anfield and, crucially, its lack of an away goal.Gabriel Jesus’ goal raised belief inside Etihad Stadium that City could do what only two teams had done before tonight and overturn at least a three-goal first-leg deficit in the Champions League knockout stage.Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp, left, speaks with Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola before the Champions League quarterfinal second leg soccer match between Manchester City and Liverpool at Etihad stadium in Manchester, England, Tuesday, April 10, 2018. (AP Photo/Rui Vieira)City hit the post through Bernardo Silva and had a goal by Leroy Sane incorrectly disallowed for offside in the last minutes of the first half.“At halftime, we said if we scored a goal it would change the atmosphere,” Klopp said.Enter Salah. In the 57th minute, the Egypt forward pounced on a loose ball in City’s area after goalkeeper Ederson Moraes saved at the feet of Sadio Mane. Salah skipped round Ederson and showed composure to lift his shot over sprawling City defender Aymeric Laporte near the goal-line.With City now needing four goals in barely half an hour to advance, Liverpool knew a spot in the last four for the first time in 10 years was there for the taking. Roberto Firmino made sure of it by curling in the team’s second goal in the 77th.“They are a tough team with a top manager,” City manager Pep Guardiola said of Liverpool. “I would say they deserve to get in the final.”Surprisingly, Roma joined Liverpool in the semifinals by doing what City couldn’t and delivering one of the biggest upsets in the competition’s recent history, beating Barcelona 3-0 to advance on the away-goals rule at 4-4.After goals by Edin Dzeko and Daniele De Rossi, center back Kostas Manolas scored the decisive goal with a header from a corner in the 82nd minute at the Stadio Olimpico.Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are in good positions to complete the last-four lineup when the quarterfinals are wrapped up on Wednesday. Madrid leads Juve 3-0 and Bayern leads Sevilla 2-1.It was the latest Champions League failure by Guardiola, who won the competition twice with Barcelona — in 2009 and ’11 — but hasn’t reached the final since in five season with Bayern Munich and City.Guardiola spent the second half in the stands after being sent from the dug-out for arguing with referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz during halftime. He was unhappy that Sane’s goal, which would have made it 2-0, was ruled out and took his complaints too far.Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus celebrates scoring his side’s first goal of the game against Liverpool during the Champions League, quarterfinal second leg soccer match at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester, England Tuesday April 10, 2018. (Tim Goode/PA via AP)Over the two legs, City and Guardiola can have few complaints. It’s now three losses in a week for City, which was defeated by Manchester United at the weekend to miss out on winning the Premier League title in record time. Questions are being asked about the way Guardiola sets up his sides for big-occasion matches, especially in Europe, and their propensity to collapse.“You won’t find a team who can keep the same momentum over the course of 11 months,” Guardiola said. “Maybe in the future, I will realize what the trick is.”Guardiola made his intentions clear by selecting an aggressive 3-1-3-3 formation. All-out attack was the only option for City and the early goal it so craved came when Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk, under pressure from Raheem Sterling, sent a clearance straight to Fernandinho.He slid the ball through to Sterling, who squared it for Jesus to stroke in a cool finish from 15 meters.Liverpool is the top scorer in the Champions League and its quality on the counterattack left City prone to a sucker-punch and Salah applied it.Liverpool fans’ celebrations were already in full swing by the time Firmino pounced on an error by Otamendi to score the winner on the night.With Barcelona also out, Liverpool has a great chance to win a sixth title in Europe’s top competition — and its first since 2005.___By STEVE DOUGLAS , AP Sports WriterMore AP Champions League coverage: https://apnews.com/tag/ChampionsLeagueManchester City’s Gabriel Jesus celebrates scoring his side’s first goal of the game against Liverpool during the Champions League, quarterfinal second leg soccer match at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester, England Tuesday April 10, 2018.
