(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. The playoffs are a month away and he plans to be in top form to lead another special Golden State run.ADVERTISEMENT Messi reaches 100 Champions League goals, Barcelona beats Chelsea 3-0 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 It was still hard for Curry to think about missing Wednesday’s game.“Selfishly I was always keying in on tonight just because it was a big day,” Curry said. “You only turn 30 once. 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.

At this point there’s enough time, not just me, we have a bunch of guys banged up, that we all can prioritize health and understand that we need to all be ready to go.”Curry will miss at least the next four games for the ailing defending champions as he heals from his latest right ankle injury, while Splash Brother Klay Thompson also will miss those games.

Elections 2014: expats all set to vote

Elections 2014: expats all set to vote

first_img The IEC has confirmed that 25 390 150 voters have registered to cast their ballots in the 7 May 2014 national and provincial elections. This is an increase of 9.5% over the 2009 voters’ roll. The voters’ roll reflects a total of 80.80% of registered voters, the IEC said. Gauteng has the highest number of voters with just over 6-million followed by KwaZulu-Natal with 5.1-million, the Eastern Cape with 3.24-million and the Western Cape with 2.9-million. Between them, these four provinces make up almost 68% of all voters. The final candidate lists, released by the IEC on 25 April, show a total of 8 651 candidates who are standing for elections. Of these, 2 089 candidates are on national lists; 2 165 candidates on regional lists; and 4 397 candidates on provincial lists contesting for 400 National Assembly and 430 provincial legislature seats respectively. This gives candidates an overall statistical 1 in 10 chance of election, the IEC said. According to VoteHome, a DA Abroad initiative aimed at encouraging South Africans living overseas to vote, the top 21 overseas voting stations with the most number of registered voters are: Find your nearest SA foreign mission All the overseas voting stations, except for the one in Helsinki, Finland, will open at 7am and close at 9pm. In Finland, voting will close at lunchtime due to a spring festival celebration. In order to vote, you must have both a valid green, bar-coded South African ID book, ID smartcard or Temporary Identity Certificate and your valid South African passport Voters registered in South Africa for a special vote will cast their vote on 5 and 6 May. The rest of the country heads for the polls on 7 May. Check the status of your VEC10 via the IEC websiteSee FAQs for overseas voters on the IEC’s website The thousands of South Africans living overseas who have registered to vote in this year’s national elections will cast their votes when polls open around the world, beginning with the SA High Commission in Wellington, New Zealand, at 7am on Wednesday (or 9pm on Tuesday in local time). The last voting station to close will be the one Los Angeles in the US, which will close at 6am South African time on Thursday. This year the fifth general elections since 1994. A report in a South African newspaper on Tuesday alleged that voters living abroad would not be able to do so due to a government communication problem relating to a notification form. However, this was swiftly dismissed as incorrect by the Department of International Relations, according to a report in the Mail & Guardian. “People are going to be voting tomorrow [Wednesday],” spokesperson Clayson Monyela said. “Elections are run by an independent body, not by government,” Monyela is quoted as saying. “All the information related to the elections, whether it’s here or abroad, is communicated by the IEC.” The IEC says it has printed 31-million papers for this year’s elections, and has recruited more than 200 000 to ensure smooth elections. There are 26 000 registered voters abroad, according to a report in the Cape Times. The IEC has reportedly budgeted R2-million to courier ballot papers from 116 cities back to South Africa. According to the IEC’s website, the South Africans living overseas who did not submit their VEC10 forms, which notify the IEC of their intention to vote, by 12 March are not eligible to vote. If you submitted your VEC10 by the specified date, and it was approved, you will be able to vote at the foreign mission you selected.
