(AP Photo/Jeff Chiu)OAKLAND, Calif. — Stephen Curry wanted nothing more than to play on his milestone 30th birthday, a home game against the Lakers on Wednesday night.The two-time MVP is doing his best to see the big picture, though.

I have to keep a big-picture perspective. I understand the thought process around not just how my ankle feels today versus next Wednesday versus next Friday but the things that I need to do rehab-wise to strengthen my core, everything that protects your ankle so that when I do come back I’m ready. Obviously there’s risk playing. The reason I hurt my ankle, I landed on somebody’s foot twice. You can’t help that. I’ve got to do whatever I can to lower the probability of putting myself in that situation again, especially at this point in the season.”Curry rolled his ankle driving left for a layup at the 9:38 mark of the first quarter in the win against the Spurs. He is scheduled to be re-evaluated next Tuesday.Golden State did not practice Tuesday as originally planned after the team held an early surprise birthday celebration Monday for Curry, whose wife Ayesha was involved. The couple arrived into San Francisco for the bash — 200-plus people, according to the man of the hour — on a yacht. Coach Steve Kerr was seen dancing on stage with his players in social media videos from the festivities.“I’m really nosy, too, so the fact that they still were able to execute it is pretty remarkable,” Curry said. “I’m definitely thankful for that, all that love.”ADVERTISEMENT Cabuyao City rising above the ashes through volunteerism Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil LATEST STORIES Recto seeks to establish Taal rehab body to aid community, eruption victims In Liverpool, Man United sees the pain and path to recovery Scarlett Johansson, Sterling K.

(AP Photo/Mark Humphrey)NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The United States has a big advantage at least in world rankings, and John Isner and Sam Querrey have given the Americans a 2-0 lead in the Davis Cup quarterfinals over Belgium.First, Isner beat Joris De Loore 6-3, 6-7 (4), 7-6 (8), 6-4, and Querrey followed with a straight sets victory, beating Ruben Bemelmans 6-1, 7-6 (5), 7-5 Friday night to put the U.S. a victory away from reaching the semifinals for the first time since 2012.ADVERTISEMENT The American cruised through the first set in 26 minutes. De Loore held serve in the second and with the tiebreaker tied at 4-4, took advantage of consecutive mistakes by Isner.The American hit a forehand long before putting a backhand into the net on his own serve. Then he missed on a 140-mph serve and hit a forehand into the corner long on set point.De Loore opened the third set by breaking Isner, taking the game with a forehand winner after pushing the game to deuce.The Belgian also had a chance to break Isner in the seventh game only to see Isner hold and then break back to even the set at 4-4.

Gov’t Urged to Prioritize WASH

Gov’t Urged to Prioritize WASH

first_imgWaterAid Liberia, in partnership with WASH Stakeholders and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), has called on the government to strengthen the health care system through the provision of adequate water, sanitation and hygiene.The group made the call on Monday, August 8, in a joint communiqué addressed to the Ministry of Health. They want the government to give post-Ebola recovery for water, sanitation and hygiene the highest priority.Presenting the letter to Deputy Health Minister, Dr. Francis Kateh, the chairman of the Liberia WASH CSOs Network, Prince Kreplah, said the action by the group is intended to urge government to improve the health sector.Kreplah, however, commend the government for strides made to improve WASH in health care facilities across the country, adding that the government should exert more effort to deliver on its health and WASH promises.In response, Deputy Health Minister Kateh thanked WaterAid and WASH’s CSO partners for their continued work, and agreed that the issue of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) are crucial to the health care delivery system of the country.Dr. Kateh, who is also the nation’s Chief Medical Officer, appealed to Liberians to take their health seriously, especially when it involves water.Following the presentation of the letter to the Health Ministry, a press conference was held to address key health and WASH issues.The Chairman of the Liberia NGOs Network, George Kayah, commended the government and development partners for steps taken to improve WASH and health care delivery but noted that despite these efforts there still remain serious deficiencies in water, sanitation and hygiene in rural communities, hospitals and clinics.WASH Coordinator at the Health Ministry, Wataku Kortima, disclosed that the government has put in place WASH protocols to ensure that water, sanitation and hygiene play a key role in the country’s health care delivery system.He urged collaborative efforts among CSO actors as well as Liberians to ensure that challenges affecting the health sector are resolved. The Health Ministry has started the training of health care workers on WASH protocols and the essence of WASH in health, he added.Speaking on behalf of the British Charity WaterAid in Liberia, Program Effectiveness Coordinator Samuel Quirmolue indicated that WaterAid will continue to support the government and local partners in the sector to improve WASH and make it accessible.Meanwhile, a baseline report released on water, sanitation and hygiene in health facilities in 2015 found out that about 95 percent of health care facilities do not meet the Ministry of Health’s standards on water quantity for all purposes.More than 50 percent of health facilities do not have a protected year–round source of water, and 20 percent do not have any protected source on site.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img“It’s his only job, that’s why he was so worried,” said Newhouse, who was watching news coverage of the shooting when police called and told her Mendez was involved. “He only said `I’ll be back’ when he left this morning and I said, `OK,”‘ she said. “He didn’t say anything to me about his work.” Police said Mendez was not scheduled to work Monday. Risinger said the victims had apparently helped him get the job assembling menus about a year ago. Victims Rafael Mendoza, 46, shot once in the back and once in the left elbow, and Sergio Garcia, 49, shot once in the chest and once in the left shoulder, were in fair but stable condition at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, said trauma surgeon Gergis Ghobrial. Part of Mendoza’s spine was also fractured. “They were very shocked,” Ghobrial said. “They could not talk but now they seem to be more relaxed.” There was no immediate information on the other victim, who was taken to St. Mary Medical Center. A dozen workers were in the business at the time of the attack. A female worker locked herself in a room and called 911 when the shooting started. By the time police arrived some employees, including two of the wounded, had evacuated. Officers got the other employees and the remaining wounded man out of the building. The total number of shots fired wasn’t known, Risinger said. The SWAT operation was conducted by a team from neighboring Long Beach. Kenyon Press, which makes custom designed menus, has customer service personnel, copywriters, designers, illustrators, proofreaders, prepress, press and bindery/manufacturing workers. Its clientele includes Las Vegas casinos and hotel chains, according to its Web site.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Jose Mendez, 68, of Hawthorne entered Kenyon Press shortly after 9 a.m., walked past a superior and opened fire on the victims with a semiautomatic handgun, authorities said. The business owner told police the shooter indicated he was upset about a reduction in work for all employees, police Capt. Mary Risinger said. The owner wasn’t present during the shooting.

Carolina thriving on others’ leftovers

Carolina thriving on others’ leftovers

first_imgCHARLOTTE, N.C. – Al Wallace almost quit football the day he was told he’d been traded to the Carolina Panthers. It was July 2002 and Wallace had spent the last year out of the NFL, working as an assistant principal at Palm Beach Lakes High School in Florida. He signed with Miami that spring, open to attending training camp and trying one last time to make it with the Dolphins. A week before he was due to report, the defensive end was sent to Carolina. “Football was a game that had kicked me around pretty good for a few years,” said Wallace, who contemplated telling his agent he was ready to give it up. “I almost called him and said, `Hey look, this isn’t for me. I’m going to move on with my life.”‘ AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa AnitaWallace’s wife talked him into giving Carolina a chance, and the Panthers are grateful. He’s the key backup on Carolina’s vaunted defensive line, just one of the many misfits and throwaways the Panthers have relied on to make it to the NFC championship game. There’s safety Marlon McCree, a free agent addition who reported to training camp fifth on the depth chart. But when first round pick Thomas Davis struggled in the season-opener, McCree replaced him and hasn’t looked back. Or punter Jason Baker, acquired in a trade with Denver when Carolina was desperately bidding to rid itself of troubled punter Todd Sauerbrun. Baker made the Panthers never miss the talented Sauerbrun by earning first alternate to the Pro Bowl. And don’t forget running back Nick Goings, an undrafted free agent who will once again be called on to rescue the Panthers. With Stephen Davis and DeShaun Foster out with injuries – Foster broke his leg in the NFC divisional playoff win over Chicago – Goings will be the featured back when the Panthers play the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. It’s a job Goings has held before: When injuries ravaged Carolina’s running backs last season, he vaulted from sixth-string to starter and finished the year with five 100-yard rushing games. center_img “He has the confidence of his coaches and his team, I think that’s the key,” coach John Fox said. “We had a couple of guys in front of him. Those couple of guys got hurt a year ago and those couple of guys have gotten hurt this year. We’ve been down this road before.” Fox has tremendous confidence in all of his replacement players, largely because they almost always deliver. Wallace is Carolina’s “other” defensive end, the guy called on to spell Julius Peppers and Mike Rucker. Only he’s used his limited time on the field – he estimates he plays just 40 percent of the defensive snaps – to earn his own name recognition. Wallace tied his career high with five sacks this season, while adding 34 tackles, five quarterback pressures, two interceptions, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
