  • SUNDERLAND VS LEICESTER CITY

    first_imgSUNDERLAND (4-1-4-1)MANNONE, YEDLIN, KONE, KABOUL, VAN AANHOLT, KIRCHHOFF,BORINI, CATTERMOLE, M’VILA, KHAZRI,DEFOEVARDY, OLAZAKI,ALBRIGHTON, DRONKWATER, KANTE, MAHREZ, FUCHS, HUTH, MORGAN,SIMPSON,SCHMEICHELLEICESTER (4-4-2)Leicester City’s quest to win the Barclays Premier League continues at the Stadium of Light. The Foxes need four wins from their remaining six games to confirm the most unlikely of Premier League triumphs after a fourth straight 1-0 win, the slim but effective victory over Southampton last weekend.That extended their advantage to seven points ahead of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur and 11 ahead of Arsenal, in third. After their trip to Sunderland, Leicester face home games against West Ham, Swansea and Everton and visit Manchester United and Chelsea.However, such a lead has been squandered before. In the 2011-12 campaign, Manchester United led by eight points with seven games left and lost the title on goal difference, to Manchester City.So a win at troubled Sunderland is crucial ahead of two difficult away games. The home side remain in the bottom three, now four points behind 17th-place Norwich.The Black Cats, indeed, have drawn their last four league games and have won just once – at home to Manchester United – in their last 10. Four of their six wins this season have come at home.Leicester, meanwhile, have scored 29 goals on the road, the equal best with Arsenal, while they have won 10 on the road, the best in the Premier League.When the teams met in August, at the King Power Stadium, Leicester led 3-0 after 25 minutes and went on to win 4-2. But their record in the Premier League at Sunderland is poor, with three 0-0 draws and two defeats.Sunderland’s only injury victim is Duncan Watmore. Leicester, meanwhile, have one doubt, over Jeffrey Schlupp.last_img read more

  • Wilder wants to get rid of Stiverne, then unify heavyweights

    first_imgJo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny Grizzlies’ backups, 3-point shooting, too much for Clippers “He already gave me his best,” says Stiverne (25-2-1, 20 KOs), who turned 39 on Wednesday and hasn’t fought in two years. He is stepping in for Luis Ortiz, who was disqualified by the sanctioning body when he had a positive drug test.“I had nothing last fight. But now I’m a very dangerous man. Everyone here knows what time it is. Deontay Wilder has been trying to duck me. He’s been giving a lot of excuses about my career. He should be happy if I’ve been inactive. He should be jumping in the air. Everyone knows that means he’s scared.”Rather than scared, Wilder sounds weary. He notes that the entire promotion of this fight has been on his shoulders. He’s crisscrossed the country drumming up interest, and he’s ready to finish his business for 2017 and get on with unification next year.For that, Wilder adds, he can’t wait.“I’ve promised I will unify the heavyweight titles and I will,” he says. “Those others, (Anthony) Joshua, have other plans. I don’t think he has the motivation to unify. If that is his plan, then sign the deal. That’s all it takes to make it happen. Next fight, we’ll make it happen. But he doesn’t want to fight me, period.”ADVERTISEMENT FILE – In this Jan. 17, 2015, file photo, Deontay Wilder, left, punches Bermane Stiverne during their WBC heavyweight championship boxing match in Las Vegas.

The only opponent who went the distance with him is Stiverne. (AP Photo/Isaac Brekken, File)NEW YORK — Deontay Wilder is steamed. And drained. And very, very eager.All of those descriptions are delivered by the WBC heavyweight champion himself as he prepares to fight Bermane Stiverne on Saturday night at Barclays Center.ADVERTISEMENT Wilder is 38-0 with 37 knockouts. The only opponent who went the distance with him is Stiverne, whom Wilder outpointed for the belt in 2015. Since, Wilder has stopped five others in defense of the title, but the fact that Stiverne was standing at the end of their previous bout has the champ “steamed.”Add that Stiverne has claimed many times he was not at peak health for that fight, and Wilder shakes his head in disgust.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smog“Stiverne was the only man to survive the ‘Alabama Slammer’ and avoid a knockout,” the 32-year-old native of Tuscaloosa says. “When I knock him out, then nobody will be able to say they made it through against me. He was nothing but a lot of lumps and excuses after the first fight.”Stiverne, naturally, disagrees.

The other heavyweight champ, Joseph Parker of New Zealand, owns the WBO crown. Wilder says boxing fans are confused about so many champions, and he is doing a service to the sport by unifying.Should Wilder handle Stiverne in the Showtime main event Saturday night, he won’t be satisfied if it isn’t by knockout. He wants to put on a show, particularly with a UFC card taking place in New York the same night.“This will be an electrifying fight,” Wilder says. “That belt isn’t going anywhere. I will unify the division. I will be the undefeated, undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.”The undercard features one of the area’s favorites, Shawn Porter, who faces Adrian Granados in a welterweight matchup. Porter probably has the best resume of anyone on the card, and previous fights at Barclays against Keith Thurman, Devon Alexander and Andre Berto make the former world champ a solid draw.What most impresses Porter (27-2-1, 17 knockouts) about Granados (18-5-2)? Well, at the final news conference for the bouts, the always-dapper Porter complimented Granados on his fine clothing.“The respect that Granados and I have for each other, that’s what boxing is all about,” Porter says. “It’s about getting in the ring and competing. We wanted someone that was going to come here and fight me. We didn’t want someone who was going to run or lay down. We want to close the year out in fantastic form, and the best way to do that is by facing Granados.”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 Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?last_img read more

  • Rum, ganja thrown over NA Prison fence

    first_imgPrison officials at the New Amsterdam Prison in Berbice, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) on Wednesday morning discovered several illicit items that were believed to have been thrown over the fence from the outside.The discovery was made some time around 10:30h “next to a chicken pen” in the prison compound, Director of Prisons (ag), Gladwin Samuels revealed.The items found included: two parcels containing narcotics, 18 packs of cigarettes, a quantity of ziplock bags, 12 packs of bamboo, and a plastic bottle containing El Dorado 5 Year Old rum.No one has been arrested for the discovery, but investigations are ongoing.This incident comes on the heels of several attempts to throw illicit items over theThe items discovered in the New Amsterdam Prison Compound on Wednesdayfence of prison facilities across the country.In fact, only Tuesday last, Police and prison ranks stationed at the Lusignan Prison foiled an attempt to throw illicit items over the fence around 02:15h. A suspect was seen attempting to throw a black plastic-wrapped parcel over the fence and as such, the ranks opened fire at the individual, who made good his escape.However, in the process, he dropped the parcel, which contained a total of 1002 grams of narcotics, a large quantity of tobacco leaves, four cellphones without SIM cards, one charger, one earpiece, and 33 packets of cigarettes.These incidents come less than a week after Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan expressed his disgust at the recent series of attempts to smuggle contraband into prisons and the discoveries of various illicit items at several prison facilities across the country, saying that steps are being taken to curb this practice.Furthermore, he went on to recognise that the lack of proper management at these facilities was probably contributing to the increased instances of smuggling attempts and the discovery of dozens of contraband items within the system.The smuggling of contraband items remains a perennial problem within the prison system and while authorities have been working to curb the practice, several prison officers have been caught facilitating the illegal trade, which is said to be “big business”.last_img read more

  • Over 1000 Region 8 residents affected by flood waters

    first_img– APA says response extremely slowThere are reports that the water level has risen over the past few days in Region 8 (Potaro/Siparuni) communities that have already been inundated by heavy rainfall and flash flooding of recent.This resident is trying to prevent his clothes from being destroyed by the flash flooding in Region 8The communities most-affected include Kaibarupai, Sand Hill, Chenapau and Waipa. The water is 15 feet high in some places, and approximately 10 houses have been washed away and more than 20 have been under water in Waipa up to press time. The health centre has also been under approximately four feet of water, and many farms have been completely destroyed. Residents are thus appealing for food and shelter.Kaibarupai is reportedly hardest hit, the flash-flooding having caused landslides which have lent to the overtopping of the Ireng River that has swept away residents’ belongings.Efforts to bring relief to those communities are continuing, according to Minister of State, Joseph Harmon. He disclosed on Thursday that, based on an initial assessment of the situation, more than 1000 residents have been affected by the flood waters.He said the disaster preparedness team at the Civil Defence Commission (CDC) has been activated, and the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) is also assisting with relief efforts.“We will do a proper assessment as to what the true situation is… They (CDC) have already started taking steps to get relief to those persons who are there,” he explained.Harmon said it is important to note also that some of these communities are located in valleys; and therefore, when it rains heavily, the villages would be flooded.Claiming there is not much that could be done at this time, Harmon said residents would most likely be unable to get additional relief until the water recedes.He said President David Granger has also been provided with an update of the situation, and has since instructed the relevant agencies to take every action to assist residents.However, Amerindian Peoples’ Association (APA) executive Laura George has expressed displeasure with the work being carried out by the CDC. George said, “We are concerned that the response is extremely slow, even as we recognise the need for an assessment which the CDC says it first needs to conduct.”The APA has also denounced what has been described as “a disrespectful response” from head of the CDC, Colonel Chabilall Ramsarup, who has allegedly been quoted as saying: “No one will die in one day.” The APA has described his comments as “disrespectful,” and has called on the CDC to act professionally and efficiently.last_img read more

  • Hurricanes edge Kings, 2-1

    first_imgScott Walker scored the go-ahead goal in the second period and David Tanabe had two assists to lead the Hurricanes past the Kings, 2-1, and give Carolina a much needed victory as it enters a critical stretch of the schedule. Ray Whitney also scored for the Hurricanes. Cam Ward made 21 saves and didn’t face much pressure in earning a relatively easy win. “Right now you can’t worry about who you’re catching or who’s catching you,” said Walker, who scored his 17th goal of the season. “You’ve got to worry about the team you’re playing and get the two points. That’s what we focused on.” Alexander Frolov scored for the Kings, who have lost 13 of 16. With the score tied at 1-1, Walker took a pass from Josef Vasicek along the boards and curled toward the middle of the zone. With no Kings defender hanging with him, Walker found a lane and took a long shot from beyond the circles that slipped by goalie Sean Burke at 14:46 of the second. The Kings looked set for a good start when Carolina’s Justin Williams was given a four-minute penalty for high-sticking Jamie Lundmark 13 seconds in. But the Kings managed only one shot with the advantage. The Kings managed just 10 shots in the first two periods. And when they got a scoring chance – as when Dustin Brown corralled a mishandled puck by Frantisek Kaberle along the boards for a breakaway chance – they didn’t take advantage. RALEIGH, N.C. – The Carolina Hurricanes know they can’t let any points get away if they want to defend their Stanley Cup title. On Tuesday night, that meant avoiding a letdown against the Western Conference’s last-place team. center_img “That’s why we’re in the predicament we’re in,” Kings coach Marc Crawford said. “We’re learning how to be a good team. When you’re a good team, you find a way to scrap, fight and claw away at good teams. “Carolina played well. They didn’t make a lot of mistakes. We didn’t play a spirited enough game.” Ward had a solid performance after allowing three goals on eight shots against Minnesota on Saturday before being pulled for John Grahame. He gave up only Frolov’s redirection goal on a power play, and stopped a clear shot from Derek Armstrong to preserve the lead in the final seconds. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

  • Inmate transfers start after second black dies

    first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant The county jail system, which held 18,425 inmates as of Monday morning, remained on lockdown, meaning restricted movement within the jails and a loss of privileges such as visiting rights, Yates said. The latest inmate death occurred Sunday afternoon after a fight between four Hispanic and two black prisoners in a six-man cell at the downtown Men’s Central Jail. A 38-year-old black inmate collapsed and died after the fight. Another black inmate had been killed Feb. 4 in racial fighting at the Pitchess Detention Center’s North Facility in Castaic, north of Los Angeles. On Sunday, two fights between black and Hispanic inmates broke out at the Pitchess facility. Five inmates suffered minor injuries before the fights were broken up with tear gas and pellet weapons. No deputies were hurt. Hundreds of county jail inmates were being transferred to the state corrections system after a series of racially motivated brawls killed two inmates and rocked the county jail system for more than a week, authorities said Monday. “We are in the process of getting all the prisoners we can out of here and into the state prison system,” Los Angeles County sheriff’s Chief Marc Klugman said Monday. About 200 inmates already have been moved out and an additional 400 were expected to be transferred this week, said Klugman, head of the nation’s largest jail system. “We are trying to stop all this fighting,” sheriff’s Deputy Alba Yates said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

  • STEERING RACK OF FARMER’S CAR WAS HELD TOGETHER WITH BALING CORD

    first_imgWilliam McGeehanSOME farmers use baling cord to keep their trousers up.But Co Donegal farmer William McGeehin used it….to keep his car on the road. Garda Inspector Michael Harrison told Letterkenny District Court that officers were shocked when they spotted McGeehan driving in a clapped-out rusting Nissan Terrano.Gardai stopped William McGeehan, 56, when they noticed his jeep was swaying from side to side and appeared to be down on one end.Upon closer inspection they discovered the Nissan Terrano had a number of serious defects.As well as being heavily rusted, it also had bald tyres, broken indicators and the steering column was held together by baling cord.The car wasn’t taxed and it had no insurance.Gardai told Letterkenny District Court they stopped McGeehan of Glenkeragh, Newmills in Creeslough on September 18th, 2012.The vehicle was immediately seized.“It wasn’t fit to drive so it had to be taken away on the back of a lorry,” said Inspector Harrison.The vehicle was subjected to an examination by an NCT expert and found to be in an extremely dangerous state.Judge Paul Kelly said the condition of the vehicle could have resulted in a serious accident.“It’s obvious that the condition of the vehicle made it a death-trap,” he said.Defence solicitor Frank Dorrian said the jeep had been on McGeehan’s farm for a number of years and had only been used that day because the farmer’s other car was broken.The vehicle has since been scrapped, he added.He asked Judge Kelly not to put McGeehan off the road saying he had a child with a heart defect and regularly needed to attend hospital in Dublin.Judge Kelly imposed fines totalling €550.McGeehan was fined €200 for no insurance, €150 for the defective steering and €200 for having bald tyres. The other charges were taken into consideration.The judge told McGeehan that he should consider himself lucky that he was not being put off the road.McGeehan has a number of previous convictions, including one for spitting at two nephews in a row over land.Earlier this year he was banned by a judge from speaking to his brother for three years in a separate case.STEERING RACK OF FARMER’S CAR WAS HELD TOGETHER WITH BALING CORD was last modified: December 20th, 2013 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:CreesloughLetterkenny Courtwilliam mcgeehanlast_img read more
