Heat playoff hopes take a hit with OT loss in Toronto

first_imgMiami Heat guard Dwyane Wade (3) drives past Toronto Raptors forward Norman Powell (24) on his way to the net during second-half NBA basketball action in Toronto, Sunday, April 7, 2019. (Frank Gunn/The Canadian Press via AP)TORONTO  — Another frustrating finish left the Miami Heat’s playoff hopes hanging by a thread.An untimely whistle by an official led to a disjointed final sequence in regulation, and the Heat wound up losing 117-109 in overtime to the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.ADVERTISEMENT SHARING IT AROUNDToronto is the only NBA team with a different player leading in points (Leonrd) rebounds (Serge Ibaka), assists (Kyle Lowry) and minutes (Siakam).SHIRT OFF MY BACKWade swapped jerseys with Leonard following the game.UP NEXTHeat: Host Philadelphia on Tuesday.Raptors: At Minnesota on Tuesday.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 “We’ll need some help,” Spoelstra said. “The only thing we control is what we do. We’ve got to dust this one off, get back to Miami and win the next game.”Miami was in position to be eliminated later Sunday if Orlando defeated Boston, Brooklyn beat Indiana, and Detroit beat Charlotte.“Right now, I’m devastated by this loss,” Wade said.Wade scored 21 points and Johnson had 18.Toronto’s Danny Green opened the extra session with a 3, then added a layup to put the Raptors up by five, the biggest margin for either team since the start of the fourth quarter.Pascal Siakam had 23 points and 10 rebounds and Kawhi Leonard scored 22 points for Toronto. Norman Powell matched his season high with 23 points and Green scored seven of his 21 in overtime as the Raptors won their fourth straight over the Heat.Powell, who shot 7 for 7, said he enjoyed the intensity of the matchup as Toronto prepares for the playoffs.“These guys are giving us their best performances,” he said, “so it takes our game to the next level.”The crowd of 19,800 rose for a brief ovation when Wade checked in for the first time at 6:18 of the first. The 16-year veteran intends to retire at the end of the season.Wade scored five points in the opening quarter and Miami led 26-25 after one. The Heat were up 57-50 at halftime. “It’s very disappointing that that play was allowed to continue,” he said. “From our vantage point, that was a botched play. You just set it again. That happens a million times during the course of an NBA season.”Wade, who was supposed to receive the inbounds pass, ended up not touching the ball on Miami’s final possession in the fourth quarter.“All I know is by the time turned to get it back court, Dion still had the ball,” Wade said. “It definitely took us out of what we wanted to do.”Miami lost its season-high fourth in a row.The Heat could have guaranteed a postseason berth by winning their final three games — they host Philadelphia on Tuesday and close the regular season at Brooklyn the following day.ADVERTISEMENT Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college MOST READ Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Liverpool miss out as Southampton snap up Chelsea defender on loan

first_imgSouthampton have seen off Liverpool to sign Chelsea left-back Ryan Bertrand on a season-long loan.The Reds had been credited with an interest in the 24-year-old but the south coast club have seen off their Premier League rivals to land the England international.Betrand arrives as a direct replacement for Luke Shaw, who joined Manchester United earlier this summer, and boss Ronald Koeman told the club’s official website: “I’m very happy to be able to bring Ryan in.“I spoke to him on Monday afternoon and I was very impressed with his attitude and how keen he was to play games for Southampton.“He is a top player who will bring a lot of quality to the team. He has experience at the highest level and is an exciting, attacking player, which is what I like to see in my full-backs.“I’ve been very impressed with how Matt Targett is doing in pre-season, but he is still young and developing, which I am sure he will continue to do over the coming seasons.“Left-back is an important position in the team because it is quite specialised in terms of the attributes needed to play there, so it is nice to get this signing completed because it gives us some stability.”Bertrand added: “For me personally, this is another chance to play and a chance to join a fantastic club that’s moving in the right direction.“With the set-up the club’s got, the manager it has coming in and the ethos it has, I thought this was a perfect match. The manager’s name speaks for itself, so to play under somebody like that will be good for me.“His ethos and the way he plays matches my game. I had a lot of options and a lot of interest but, having met the people and spoken to the manager and seen what the club is about, in my mind this was the perfect decision.“I’m looking to get games and to play regularly in the way and the formation that I like, and I’m sure that will benefit my game. I still think the best is yet to come from me.”Betrand’s arrive will provide some welcome relief for Saints fans, who have endured a summer of turmoil with a number of high profile stars leaving, including Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Shaw, Dejan Lovren and Calum Chambers.Morgan Schneiderlin is the next believed to be on his way out of Southampton while the injured Jay Rodriguez has also been linked with a move to Liverpool, however chairman Ralph Krueger has told talkSPORT the pair will not leave St Mary’s. 1 Chelsea defender Ryan Bertrand has joined Southampton on loan last_img read more

Activists, zoos debate future of elephants

first_imgSEATTLE – On a sunny July day, Chai the elephant browses on grass and branches in the one-acre elephant exhibit at Seattle’s Woodland Park Zoo. Children lean over the metal barriers, trying to reach the enormous charismatic creature. In the nearby elephant barn, Watoto stretches her trunk to a net filled with vegetation and munches on her lunch before wandering back to the outdoor exhibit. Teenagers watch her, mimicking the movements of her trunk. Zoos showcase such scenes as evidence of the healthy and happy experience of their elephants. Animals rights groups dismiss such enclosures as woefully small and harmful to the health of creatures meant to roam vast wildernesses. Across the country, some zoos are bowing to animal-rights groups’ pressure by shipping their elephants to sanctuaries, while others are building larger enclosures to ward off criticism about the animals’ living conditions. Sent south Animal-rights groups have intensely scrutinized zoos where elephants live in cramped circumstances or without companionship for more than a decade. Since 2000 some zoos, including Chicago, Detroit and San Francisco, have given up elephants entirely, conceding the enormous animals need too much space and money to maintain. Other zoos are following suit, either moving their elephants or not planning to replace aging animals after they die. In Alaska, publicity about Maggie, the lone elephant at Anchorage’s zoo, prompted the board to agree earlier this year to send her south. Seven zoos in warmer climates are vying for the 25-year-old elephant. But officials at the Sedgwick County Zoo in Wichita, Kan. are planning a new elephant space for 2009 that will give Stephanie and Cynda, their current female African elephants, and five new elephants 3.6 acres to roam. In Oakland, four African elephants wander more than five acres of elephant habitat, the result of a $100,000 expansion. After years of lobbying by animal-rights activists, 46-year-old Ruby of the Los Angeles Zoo retired to the Performing Animal Welfare Society’s elephant sanctuary in San Andreas. But the zoo’s other elephants will soon enjoy a new $39 million, six-acre habitat. Such changes don’t satisfy many animal-rights activists, who argue elephants belong in the wild or in much bigger sanctuaries. “The zoos are knowingly acting irresponsibly in keeping the elephants on surfaces and spaces totally inadequate for them because they don’t want to lose their biggest attractions,” said Elliot M. Katz, President of In Defense of Animals. In Seattle, elephant welfare jumped into the headlines after the sudden death of Hansa, a six-year-old Asian elephant who died of a previously unknown type of herpes virus infection. Zookeepers expected criticism from animal-rights groups, which they see as a thinly veiled campaign to eventually close zoos entirely by attacking their most popular and charismatic attractions. How much space? “The people who really care about animals are in zoos,” said Seattle’s Woodland Park Zoo Deputy Director Bruce Bohmke. “And we are constantly challenged to find a way to make zoos better.” So, how much space do elephants need? Most zoo directors maintain it’s not the size of the exhibit but the quality of care and the use of space that matters. Some zoo officials use Woodland Park Zoo as a positive example because they say its layout maximizes an acre of land for three elephants. “We still get visitors who can’t find the elephants,” Bohmke said. “It’s a very long acre.” The Association of Zoos and Aquariums requires at least 400 square feet of indoor space and 1,800 square feet, about the size of six parking spaces, to house an elephant. “We felt and we continue to feel that space is very arbitrary,” Mike Keele, deputy director of the Oregon Zoo and chair of the association’s elephant advisory group. “What is really important is the animal’s condition and if they are behaving normally.” Animal-rights activists argue the creatures need far more space. The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee has 2,700 acres for 23 elephants and the Performing Animal Welfare Society’s California sanctuary has 75 acres for eight elephants. There are about 43,560 square feet in an acre. Elephants in the wild can travel dozens of miles in a day, but zoos cite studies showing that they don’t need to roam as much if they have enough food, water and companionship. “In the wild they are trying to find food, they’re foraging. You do get the trade-off in zoos of not needing to forage, so then do they really need that much space?” said Ted Friend, an animal science professor at Texas A&M University who focuses on determining optimum living environments for animals. Many animal-rights organizations argue minimal exercise and hard concrete floors cause arthritis and gruesome foot problems. According to an In Defense of Animals study of Association of Zoos and Aquarium member medical records, more than 60 percent of elephants in zoos suffer from foot problems. Zoo officials contend those problems are the lingering results of zoo practices from decades ago. “Fifty years ago we didn’t know what concrete surfaces would do to an elephant’s feet,” Bohmke said. “It’s a constant learning process.” An association survey of its own member zoos shows the overall health of the 284 elephants is 8.74 on a 10-point scale. Animal-rights activists also argue zoo-type captivity results in premature death for animals that can live as long as 70 years in the wild. A study of captive elephants published in Zoo Biology reported the life expectancy of North American Asian elephants at 35.9 years and 33 years for African elephants in zoos. Fighting with animal rights activists about the care of elephants is as old as the Association of Zoos and Aquariums itself, which started in 1971, Keele said. “We got those criticisms and we’ll get criticism again. We still look at it. We don’t ignore it, we can’t afford to,” Keele said. Zoos argue letting zoo visitors see elephants up close is the most effective way to get people to care about conservation and ultimately contributes to saving natural elephant habitats in Africa and Asia. Sanctuaries, meanwhile, are usually closed to the public and many don’t plan to breed elephants.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Dordt Blanks Concordia

first_imgSioux Center, Iowa — The Dordt Defender football team secured its second shutout in a row and improved its record to 5-3 with a 35-0 win over Concordia on Saturday afternoon in Sioux Center.The Defenders moved the ball on their first possession but stalled at the Concordia 30 yard line after a penalty and a negative yardage play.The Bulldogs were unable to move the ball on their first possession and after a punt the Defenders embarked on a 79 yard drive that took 11 plays and it was Levi Jungling getting to the edge for a score and a 7-0 lead after the Brett Zachman point after kick.The Defenders forced a turnover on the ensuing kickoff as Concordia was unable to field Zachman’s high kick in the wind and Connor Bosma came up with it.With a short field in front of them, the Defenders marched down the field and Carter Schiebout punced it in from the six yard line for a 14-0 lead with 2:08 left in the quarter.The Defneders added two more scores before halftime with Michael Sonderman capping an eight play, 42 yard drive with a one yard run and Levi Schoonhoven was the fourth Defender to score as he plowed in from one yard out to end a 10 yard drive that was set up by a David Kacmarynski interception and 16 yard return to the Concordia 10.After a scoreless third quarter the Defenders reached the end zone for a fifth time with Noah Clayberg finding Jungling for a 14 yard pass and catch with 13:27 left in the game.Concordia threatened to break up the shutout late in the game but their drive ended at the Dordt 13 on an incomplete pass as time expired.last_img read more

Durban’s massive Cornubia development under way

first_imgA R25 billion mixed use development will create homes, retail opportunities and create an industrial park between Durban and King Shaka International Airport.The Cornubia mall, as envisaged by developers. (Image: Cornubia)Brand South Africa reporterPresident Jacob Zuma officially launched the government’s massive Cornubia development on Sunday. The R25-billion mixed-use development of housing, commercial and industrial sites is set to change the skyline between Durban and King Shaka International Airport.“I am hopeful that with integrated human settlement projects like Cornubia, we will be able to effectively eradicate a significant number of the informal settlements across various areas in eThekwini and across South Africa,” Zuma said, noting that the project would cost the government R25-billion over 20 years.Developers have integrated a public transport system that serves the entire development. (Image: Cornubia)Over 24 000 new homesCornubia is a mixed-use, mixed-income, 1 200-hectare development, with 80 hectares earmarked for industrial development and the rest for commercial, housing and other social and public facilities, including schools, creches, clinics, multi-purpose halls, police stations and post offices.It is strategically located between Durban’s wealthier Mt Edgecombe and Umhlanga areas and disadvantaged areas north of the city such as Inanda, Ntuzuma, KwaMashu, Phoenix, Ottawa and Waterloo.Situated some 15 kilometres south of King Shaka International, Cornubia will see over 24 000 new mixed-income homes being built over the next 10 years, 15 000 for subsidised housing and the balance for a wide range of affordability levels.What started as a joint venture between the eThekwini Metro Municipality and agriculture and agri-processing company Tongaat Hulett has since been adopted by the Cabinet as a national priority project, bringing in all spheres of government as official partners.Phase 1A of the development was completed in September last year at a cost of nearly R100-million, and the first 482 beneficiaries moved into their new homes in November. Construction of phase 1B is under way and promises another 2 100 homes at a cost of around R560-million.The first homes built at Cornubia will go to residents of nearby informal settlements. (Image: Cornubia)The units consist of two bedrooms, a lounge, a kitchen and ablution facilities – a far cry from the usual one-bedroom RDP starter homes.The development is expected to create 48 000 new sustainable job opportunities over a period of 15 years, and a further 15 000 during the construction phase.Zuma said the residents would also be linked to the city’s new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, with planned BRT routes linking Cornubia to areas including Umhlanga, Phoenix, the Dube Trade Port and the King Shaka International Airport nearby.‘We now have so much space’The first phase of Cornubia residents are being drawn from surrounding informal settlements, including Blackburn, Stonebridge and Ridgeview, as well as transit or waiting camps in Clermont.One of the beneficiaries, who moved into her home in November, is 66-year-old Lucy Xaba. After spending five years in Lindela, a waiting camp in Waybank, Clermont, Xaba finally has her own roof over her head.The home is a godsend to the pensioner, whose husband, a construction worker and the family’s breadwinner, died a few years ago. Originally from KwaSwayimane, in Pietermaritzburg, she had to raise her children alone, and made ends meet by selling potatoes.“Life has indeed been tough for me, but I am happy today because my suffering has come to an end. I never expected that I would ever live in a place like this,” Xaba said.Living in Cornubia was like returning to the promised land, said 51-year-old Inderlal Mothilal, who lives with his wife Mominbibi, 49, and their two children. The couple now earn a living by running a local tuckshop where residents can buy bread, milk and other essentials.Just a few doors down is the Muthia family. After 46 years of marriage, James and Sally Muthia finally have a home of their own. Originally from Blackburn Village – an old slum near Phoenix – the couple’s home is known by residents as having the best garden in the area. “My new home is my pride and joy, that is why I take pride in my garden,” said James.Added Sally: “My husband was always sickly, but now since we have moved to Cornubia his blood pressure is down and he has been feeling much better.”Living in a mixed community is quite nice, says 26-year-old mother of three Zanele Cele. Zanele lives in Cornubia with her father Zozwane Ngcobo and mother Eunice Cele, who are both unemployed.The family moved to Cornubia after living in a one-room shack in Clermont. “We now have so much of space, and a bathroom – it is really a different life that we are used to, and we love it,” Cele said.“Living with people of mixed races is very nice. We learn a lot about different cultures, and Cornubia is how South Africa should be, one big happy mixed family.”Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
