Hood is confident he’s ready.“Just going out there and try to help the team, on offense be aggressive and on defense just be physical,” he said.Hood struggled during a playoff series with Utah against Golden State a year ago, making just 1 of 15 3-pointers and shooting 12 of 38 overall.Those stats don’t matter now.The only number that counts is his and will soon be called.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparc Dave Chappelle donates P1 million to Taal relief operations Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Lue didn’t get nearly enough in Games 1 and 2 in Oakland from J.R. Smith (5 of 19) or Kyle Korver (4 points). Korver has been completely neutralized by the Warriors, who are not giving him any room to shoot.“It’s hard because they switch out on everything,” Lue said. “So all the actions you run for Kyle, they just switch out to deny and take him away. When they are helping on LeBron’s penetration, the one guy they’re staying at home on is Kyle. They’re not leaving his body.”Unlike the 37-year-old Korver, Hood is quick enough to beat the Warriors off the dribble, create open space to shoot and maybe get to the rim. Defensively, he’s got length and mobility.He’s shown flashes. The Cavs now need him to shine steadily.“He’s very talented,” said forward Kevin Love. “He’s a guy that can step in and fill up a scoreboard. Left-handed. A little bit unorthodox in the way that he plays. Just having that height on him and that wingspan, and the ability to not only make shots, but on the defensive end to switch out. Also play a guy like K.D. (Kevin Durant) at his size and just make it tough on both ends of the floor for their team. That gives all of us a lot of confidence that he can come in and make an impact.”Hood’s short stay in Cleveland has been nondescript.He averaged 16.8 points for the Jazz, but the 25-year-old never truly found his rhythm while coming off the bench for the Cavs over the regular season’s final 21 games. Still, he was in Lue’s starting lineup for the series opener against Indiana before Cleveland got beat soundly.Hood saw spot duty the remainder of that series, and was essentially ineffective in three games against the Raptors before Lue tried to send him into the closing minutes of the clinching win on May 7 as the Cavs completed a sweep of the Eastern Conference’s top-seeded team.When Hood declined, it upset a few teammates. Hood insisted he wasn’t protesting his reduced role and explained that there had been a mix-up. He apologized to the Cavs, many of whom laughed off the incident as minimal in a season overflowing with juicier drama.While waiting for another chance, Hood has received positive support from Cleveland’s coaches and former teammates, including Joe Johnson who could relate to his plight after sitting in Houston.

We already know that Scientific, Liberia’s reigning hip hop champ, has bars for days. He can rap a pair of fitted jeans off any lady; his lyrics are well packaged and professional.During the recent LMA Awards on June 4, 2016, and for the third time in a row, Scientific grabbed the Best Hip Hop Artist award, and there was no publicity around it. If you don’t think that’s something to think on, you should worry because winning so many awards shows Scientific’s ability to work, sound good, put on shows, sign contracts, travel and tour. These qualities are the body of what makes an artist successful. And there hasn’t been any other Liberian hip hop artist who can shake Scientific’s turf as ‘The Best.’ I caught up with him on IMO, thanks to DJ Weego Zico of HottFm, who pinched me that the rap mogul was staying at the same hotel as he was. According to the two, they’re in Ivory Coast, Abidjan, in preparation for the July 26 Independence Day celebration in Belgium slated for July 22-24, 2016. The concert carnival is organized by African Entertainment and will host Liberian artists, models, radio presenters, DJs and a host of others. Scientific could be on that trip.DJ Blue of Hottfm 107.9, DJ Weego Zico, award winning movie star Frank Artus and a few others will be attending the celebrations.Meanwhile, If you can recall, Scientific dropped a gem on his fans when his publicist and manager Junda Morris-Kennedy announced that they have signed a distribution deal with AFRICORI. That information topped all of his other achievements in his years as an artist.“My publicist and manager is doing a great job and linking a lot of things because she is connected like that. AFRICORI is really showing love; they are actually ready to do whatever with us. They are bringing a lot of things on the table to try and help out; they want to do a couple of collabo’s and we are looking at the BET awards and stuff like that by next year,” Scientific added.Scientific has also joined the caring crowd showing his humanitarian side by putting up a charity movement.“I’m trying to do a charity movement and get my own organization moving. My team is working on a whole lot in increasing the Scientific brand, a lot is involved including merchandising. Before 2016 ends, it’s going to be big; just expect the best from Scientific,” he said.He has a website where fans can follow him www.scientific4life.com. Any information you’ll need on your boy is there. “What’s happening with me on a day to day basis and what’s going down with Scientific,” he added.So, how does Scientific stay on top of his game, I mean, he’s even balanced his rapping with colloqua and has a couple of tracks where he’s heard using the dialect quite nicely?“This year is going to be really good: a couple of travels and tours are going to be planned, and we are setting up a lot of other stuff. This year I’ll be dropping a new album, a mature album, a different me, a lot of style is being put together for this one, great songs, the intro to the album is actually a full song and will also be shooting the video to it. This year is going to be really good; a couple of travels and tours are going to be planned,” he said.Watch out or listen for two new planned single releases “A Back Wicked” and “Aint Got Time.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
A fire of unknown origin has left at least six persons, including three children, homeless after completely destroying their Lot 115 Cane View, South Ruimveldt home on Thursday afternoon.When Guyana Times arrived on the scene, three fire trucks, along with firefighters, were trying to contain the massive blaze, which had already destroyed a section of the upper flat of the concrete and wooden structure.The fire reportedly started around 14:00h, according to a resident.Firefighters battling to douse the blaze, which engulfed the South Ruimveldt homeThis publication was informed that at the time of the fire, only an elderly woman and her eight-year-old grandchild were at home.Divisional Operations Officer of the Guyana Fire Service, Compton Sparman told media operatives that the report he received indicated that the elderly woman was in the lower flat of the home, and the child was in the upper flat. The elderly woman reported that she saw the blaze when the child exited a room and as such, grabbed her and immediately evacuated the premises.“Upon receiving the call of a fire, we immediately dispatched three units. One from West Ruimveldt and two from Central; and equipped with our water and water from the canals, firefighters managed to stop the blaze from spreading on to the other building that you can see is very close,” he said.Additionally, the elderly woman’s son-in-law, Ven Chase told media operatives that he was at work when he received the call. The man, who appeared distressed, was questioned as to his next step and said, “Something gotta be done. I don’t know, but we gotta start back. Somehow we gotta.”Eyewitnesses at the scene said that they heard an explosion before seeing the red flames on the roof of the house. “It gotta be gas bottle or something. All I hear is boof, boof, boof and the red flames at the top of the house,” one man said.An investigation has been launched.This is the fourth fire that has been reported for this week. On Sunday, three people, including a one-year-old, perished in a fire at Beterverwagting, East Coast Demerara, after the house was purposely set ablaze.On Tuesday, another house was set alight by a jilted man at Covent Garden, East Bank Demerara, and on Wednesday, a fire of unknown origin completely destroyed two buildings on Bishop Street, between Princes and Norton Streets, Georgetown leaving at least 11 people homeless and millions of dollars in losses.Meanwhile, on Wednesday, Fire Chief Marlon Gentle announced that more buildings were destroyed by fire this year so far when compared to the corresponding period in 2016. He also noted that some of those fires were acts of arson.
1 Chelsea have had a £25m offer for Santos winger Gabriel Barbosa snubbed by the player, according to reports in Brazil.Incoming Blues boss Antonio Conte is understood to be a huge admirer of the 19-year-old and had ordered officials of his new club to stump up a mega fee.However, according to UOL Esporte, Barbosa is holding out for a dream move to Real Madrid in the future and is reluctant to move to Stamford Bridge.Santos have apparently accepted the bid from Chelsea but have informed the Premier League club that Barbosa wants to stay put in his native Brazil.Chelsea are not the first club to have been turned down by Barbosa, with Chinese Super League club Hebei China Fortune also receiving a similar response earlier this year.

Breaking news: A pensioner has this afternoon been found guilty of six charges of indecently assaulting a young boy at his home in Co Donegal.The man, who is in his 70s, had denied sexually assaulting the boy, then aged 14, between 1989 and 1990 during a three-day trial at Letterkenny Circuit Court. The jury of five women and seven men took just 57 minutes to reach a unanimous guilty verdict on all six charges.After the man was found guilty, the court heard how the man had one previous conviction for a similar offence.During the case, the accused man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had denied all charges.Judge Cormac Quinn said he was agreeing to a request for a probation report from the man’s barrister Paul Flannery, SC.He remanded the man on continuing bail to April 25th but warned: “I will say it is a very serious matter notwithstanding it’s an old case but it is a very serious matter.”The man was granted legal aid for a psychiatric report.The alleged victim, who is now in his 40s, said both he and his attacker were interested in flying and how he ended up in the man’s house looking at flying magazines.However, he claimed the man then locked the door and indecently assaulted him.Once back at the man’s home, he initially showed the teenage boy some flying magazines but then began to show him pornographic magazines.The alleged victim then gave evidence that his alleged attacker locked the door and took him to his bedroom.It was here that the man claimed he saw his alleged attacker, who is now in his 70s, carry out a sexual act with a hoover.The man said “He dropped trousers and at the end of the bed there was a hoover. The nozzle was taken off it and he said look at this.“He stuck his penis in and he began turning on and off the hoover. He said “This is like a woman’s vagina. I couldn’t understand it or get my head around it.“He then pulled down my tracksuit bottoms and touched my penis and he continued masturbating himself. I couldn’t get an erection.“He was moaning and his face was getting purple. When he ejaculated he came over to me and said that is how you know you’re a real man. He said it would come to me and that I would get an erection.”The alleged victim also claimed that on another occasion his attacker used a lubricant before inserting a candle into his alleged victim’s bottom.The man said he felt like he was being torn every time he went to the toilet and was also passing blood for a week afterwards.He said he later became dependant on alcohol and would often drink a bottle and a half of whiskey “raw’ each day.“All I want is closure and that is why I am here today. All I wanted to do with my life was to move on,” he said.The court heard the accused was interviewed under caution after presenting himself at a Donegal Garda Station in December 2014.After his arrest, he was interviewed twice and he denied the allegations made by the complainant.In the interview, the accused denied that the alleged victim had ever been in his house.He denied the allegation that made by the alleged victim on the first day of the trial that he had committed a sex act with a hoover in front of the boy.“That is totally untrue,” he said. “I would never do anything like that with a hoover,” he said.He also denied showing the boy pornographic magazines in his house.“It’s pure fabrication. I don’t remember him ever being in my house.”He said in the interview that he would have had “the odd porn magazine” in his house for his own reading.The accused said the only sexual encounters he had in the house were with a female and were consensual.In a second interview, he again denied taking ever taking the boy back to his house.He also denied committing a sexual assault on the teenager with a candle.“There is not one ounce of truth in that. He was not in my house.”The court heard that gardaí carried out a search of the accused’s house following the interview.The investigating garda, who is now retired, told the court the layout of the house was very similar to what the alleged victim had described.In summing up prosecution counsel Patricia McLaughlin BL said the jury was entitled to return a verdict of guilty if they believed the evidence of the witness.She said there were no independent witnesses but that was not unusual in cases of indecent assault as “they are covert crimes carried out away from the eyes of others”.She said all the evidence taken together, including written records of a club that the teenager and the accused were involved in which was found at the accused’s home by gardaí, was enough to establish that the events happened.She said that while the accused denied that the teenager was ever in his house, she said the witness had very good knowledge of the inside of the accused’s house.She said there was also evidence of grooming in the case.She told the jury said the witness was “a truthful witness and you can rely on his testimony”.Defence counsel Paul Flannery SC said there were doubts raised by forms filled in by the witness when he attended counselling which contained information that he admitted was not accurate.He said there was also doubts about the period of time the alleged abuse occurred for and that meant “there was a lot more abuse going on”.He said the witness had “quite a selective memory” adding that the jury would have to wonder about “a good lot of his evidence”.“I’m not saying he is a liar but he is a very confused man.”Mr Flannery said some of the evidence went into the realm of speculation.“To put a man away on because of speculation is a very dangerous thing to do,” he said.He said the jury had to have a reasonable doubt and in those circumstances, they would have to find the accused not guilty.Judge Cormac Quinn told the jury that they could not let sympathy make their decision.When the verdict was passed, the accused man closed his eyes but showed no other emotion.He will be sentenced at the next sitting of Letterkenny Circuit Court in April.Pensioner found guilty of indecently assaulting young boy was last modified: March 4th, 2017 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:courtdonegalGardaiJUDGEletterkennysex assault
Finn Harps will be looking to increase their unbeaten run to nine games, and in the process take a firm grip on fourth spot, when they welcome Athlone Town to Finn Park tonight (kick-off 7.45pm).Athlone come to Finn Park having recently replaced Manager Mike Kerley with Padraig Moran.“They’ve certainly improved this year, albeit they have recently parted company with their manager,” said Harps boss Peter Hutton ahead of Saturday’s game. “They had a good result last week against Longford and it will be no surprise to see their players trying to impress Padraig Moran. They have a good work ethic and athleticism; so you’ll not get anything off them unless you match their work rate.“But the onus is on us as the home team to take the game to them. While the results might not always have gone our way, most games at Finn Park this year have been filled with drama and excitement.”Last weekend’s 1-1 draw against Mervue United at Fahy’s Field extended Harps’ recent unbeaten run to eight games. Although the game was far from a classic, Hutton was happy with his troops and the progress shown over the last couple of months.“There wasn’t very much football played, although we tried our best to play a wee bit. They were very hard to play against, playing five in midfield and crowding out an already very tight and congested pitch,” Hutton said. “They just played long balls all night and for us we like to get a tempo going and a fluency to our play but it was very hard to do that when the opposition is set up like that. We had a couple of chances near the end where we could’ve stolen it but we just sort of snatched at the shots.”The injuries and suspensions are beginning to clear up for Hutton’s side. This weekend, he welcomes back a trio of suspended players in Thomas McBride, Kevin McHugh and Aaron O’Hagan. However, Gary Merritt and Michael Funston are doubts, with the latter the one most likely to have recovered in time for Saturday.Although Harps have an excellent home record against Athlone, they did lose when the two sides met at Finn Park in May. That 2-1 loss was Athlone’s first victory at Finn Park in twenty years – their previous victory in Ballybofey coming via a 3-2 win in October 1992.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~TEAM NEWS Suspended: None.Doubtful: Gary Merritt (groin), Michael Funston (shin).Injured: Stephen O’Donnell (cruciate), Hugh Carlin (cruciate), Blain Curtis (cruciate).Form Guide (last six league games) Finn Harps: D-D-W-W-D-D (10 pts)Athlone Town: D-L-L-D-L-D (3 pts)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Last six home games against Athlone Town02/11/2007 – Finn Harps 1-1 Athlone Town (First Division)18/07/2009 – Finn Harps 1-1 Athlone Town (First Division)17/04/2010 – Finn Harps 0-0 Athlone Town (First Division)01/10/2010 – Finn Harps 2-2 Athlone Town (First Division)26/05/2011 – Finn Harps 1-0 Athlone Town (First Division)05/05/2012 – Finn Harps 1-2 Athlone Town (First Division)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Finn Harps Goalscorers 2012Kevin McHugh – 10 (1 in League Cup)Paul McVeigh – 4Adam Clarke – 4Thomas McBride – 3Blain Curtis – 2Ciaran Coll – 2Paul Simon Tracey – 2Thomas McMonagle – 2Matt Harkin – 2Thomas Bonner – 1Aaron O’Hagan – 1Shaun McGowan – 1~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Finn Harps Results 2012 (Harps goalscorers in brackets)31/08/2012 – (FD) Mervue United 1-1 Finn Harps (McVeigh)18/08/2012 – (FD) Finn Harps 1-1 Limerick (McVeigh)11/08/2012 – (FD) Longford Town 0-1 Finn Harps (McHugh)03/08/2012 – (FD) Finn Harps 2-0 SD Galway (McHugh 2)27/07/2012 – (FD) Waterford United 1-1 Finn Harps (Harkin)21/07/2012 – (FD) Finn Harps 3-3 Wexford Youths (McMonagle, McHugh, McGowan)13/07/2012 – (FD) Athlone Town 1-1 Finn Harps (O’Hagan)07/07/2012 – (FD) Finn Harps 3-2 Mervue United (McHugh, McVeigh 2)29/06/2012 – (FD) Limerick 3-0 Finn Harps22/06/2012 – (FD) Finn Harps 1-3 Longford Town (Harkin)30/05/2012 – (FD) Salthill Devon 1-5 Finn Harps (Bonner, McBride 2, Coll 2)23/05/2012 – (FC) Derry City 4-0 Finn Harps18/05/2012 – (FD) Finn Harps 0-1 Waterford United11/05/2012 – (FD) Wexford Youths 3-0 Finn Harps05/05/2012 – (FD) Finn Harps 1-2 Athlone Town (McHugh)27/04/2012 – (FD) Mervue United 3-0 Finn Harps21/04/2012 – (FD) Finn Harps 1-3 Limerick (Clarke)14/04/2012 – (FD) Longford Town 1-3 Finn Harps (Tracey, McBride, Curtis)09/04/2012 – (LC) Derry City 4-0 Finn Harps06/04/2012 – (FD) Finn Harps 3-0 Salthill Devon (Clarke, McHugh, Curtis)31/03/2012 – (FD) Waterford United 0-2 Finn Harps (Tracey, Waterford o.g.)26/03/2012 – (LC) Finn Harps 2-0 Mayo League (Mayo o.g., McHugh)24/03/2012 – (FD) Finn Harps 0-1 Wexford Youths16/03/2012 – (FD) Athlone Town 2-0 Finn Harps10/03/2012 – (FD) Finn Harps 4-3 Mervue United (Clarke, McHugh 2, McMonagle)02/03/2012 – (FD) Limerick 2-1 Finn Harps (Clarke)FD = First Division; LC = League Cup; FC = FAI CupHARPS HOPING TO GO TO TOWN ON ATHLONE was last modified: September 8th, 2012 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:Athlone Townfinn harpsFinn Park

A massive crowd turned out at a public meeting last night – which was called in light of the Minister for Agriculture, Food and Marine, Michael Creed’s decision to give the go ahead for an Oyster Farm on Cruit Island. Locals were furious at the Minister’s decision to allow an Oyster Farm to be erected on the stunning strand at Cruit Island.Those opposed to the project, believe it would destroy the unspoiled beauty of the area and completely ‘desecrate’ Cruit Island. It is believed an Italian businesswoman submitted an application to create an Oyster Farm at the site in 2011.However, it was only last week that Minister Michael Creed gave the green light for an Oyster Farm project to go ahead at the site.TD Pat ‘The Cope’ Gallagher released a statement in which he revealed that he had spoken to the minister and informed those opposed to the project to make submissions outlining their reasons as to why they were objecting to the Oyster Farm.An emergency meeting was held at The Viking House Hotel last night, and a huge crowd turned up in support of the local efforts to block the project. Cruit Island posted the following on their social media timeline on Facebook.“An amazing turnout in the Viking House last night as the local community rallied around our efforts to halt a plan to develop oyster beds …at our beautiful strand at Cruit Island. “Thank you to all who turned up to show their support.“Next step is for everyone – from wherever in the world you may be – to make submissions to the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine (Michael Creed) outlining their concerns and objections around the proposed project before 17th Oct deadline. “Failure to lodge a submission before this date could eliminate the possibility to appeal any decision that we may not have hoped for.“We will provide further detail on how to draft your submissions and where to direct them to but for now let’s keep up the momentum and keep the pressure on Government by spreading the word to friends far and near.
