first_img CAREER BEST OAKLAND, California (AP): Golden State had a franchise-record 47 assists and used super-accurate shooting to blast past the Los Angeles Lakers 149-106 on Wednesday, led by Stephen Curry, who had 31 points with seven 3-pointers and nine assists. The Warriors’ 47 assists – on 53 baskets – are the most in the NBA this season and two more than their previous record, set in 1994. While a team record fell in Oakland, a personal mark was topped in Cleveland as Kevin Love scored an NBA-best 34 points in the first quarter as the Cavaliers beat Portland in a high-scoring encounter. Among other key results, San Antonio extended their winning streak to seven games by downing Charlotte, and Toronto retained a share of the Atlantic Division lead by defeating Houston. Golden State’s Kevin Durant scored 28 as the Warriors found an astonishing first-half offensive flow to run away from undermanned Los Angeles. Golden State had 26 assists on 29 baskets before the break, as in sync as the Warriors have been since adding Durant during the offseason and far better than when they took a 20-point beating at Los Angeles less than three weeks ago. Rookie No. 2 overall draft pick Brandon Ingram scored a career-best 16 points in his first start for the Lakers, who had no answers defensively as Golden State shot 61.6 per cent with 19 3-pointers. Cleveland’s 137-125 win against Portland was set up by Love’s extraordinary first quarter and a triple double from LeBron James. Love, who fell three points shy of the league record of 37 for points in any quarter set by Golden State’s Klay Thompson two seasons back, made 11 of 14 field goal attempts, including 8 of 10 on 3-pointers in the first quarter. He finished with 40 points. James had 31 points, 10 rebounds and 13 assists for his second triple-double this season. His 44 career triple-doubles moved him past Guy Rodgers for 17th place on the career assist list. Cleveland also set a franchise record with 20 3-pointers. Damian Lillard scored 40 points for Portland, including 25 in the second half. San Antonio’s Kawhi Leonard scored 30 points to lead the Spurs to a 119-114 win at Houston. LaMarcus Aldridge added 23 points to help the Spurs improve to 8-0 on the road this season. Kemba Walker led the Hornets with 26 points. Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan scored 21 of his 24 points in the third quarter to propel the Raptors to a 115-102 win at Houston. Other results: Atlanta Hawks 96 Indiana Pacers 85; Los Angeles Clippers 124 Dallas Mavericks 104; Sacramento Kings 116 Oklahoma City Thunder 101; Memphis Grizzles 104 Philadelphia 76ers 99; Utah Jazz 108 Denver Nuggets 83; Detroit Pistons 101 Miami Heat 84; Phoenix Suns 92 Orlando magic 87. New Orleans’ Anthony Davis had 45 points in his third 40-plus game of the season, leading the Pelicans over Minnesota 117-96.last_img read more

first_imgOur hearts and those of all Liberians everywhere cry out to God for comfort, strength and hope for the bereaved families of the two lads who died in the Nigerian man’s car last week.May the good Lord grant these tragically stricken families comfort, renewed faith in Him and hope to overcome this irreparable loss and, though it is hard, move on positively with life, knowing that He is able to lift His people out of all their troubles and bring them to higher ground. There they can stand and continue to say like Job, “The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord!”This affirmation of faith, however, cannot, we are sure, stop the parents, relatives and neighbors from asking, ‘Why?’ What really happened to these two innocent boys who, like all children, were simply trying to find a place to play, which is absolutely their right. Remember there is a whole international organization established just for that purpose. It is called “Right to Play” and has a branch in Liberia, too.According to the story, written by our Health Correspondent, Alaskai Moore Johnson, the children, Rueben Joe, 7, and Alvin Moses, 4, were found in a Nigerian neighbor’s car at the Voice of America (VOA) Field Community along the Robertsfield/ELWA Highway in Paynesville. The distressed and angry neighbors, immediately suspected foul play on the part of the Nigerian, identified as “OJ,” and they set his house and car ablaze. Several questions arise. When, how and why did the children enter the car? Were they actually killed by someone, or did they simply suffocate to death? But suffocation is questionable since the car was not completely locked. One of the youth involved in the search for Ruben and Alvin opened the front door of the car and found both of them in the back seat, dead. So since the front door was unlocked, suffocation is questionable because the lads did have an avenue of escape.So how did they die? Did anyone kill them? Who and why? Was there a ritualistic motive? If perchance the Nigerian was involved, what interest had he in this kind of thing in Liberia? Had he been hired by some Liberian politician to do it? Or was it done by some remote demand in Nigeria?Only an autopsy will tell the cause of Reuben and Alvin’s death.We urge the Liberia National Police (LNP) to investigate this tragedy thoroughly and deliver to the Liberian government and people, especially the parents and the community, a swift and comprehensive report, so that anyone suspected of involvement will be apprehended, investigated and prosecuted before it is too late. It is indeed coincidental that “OJ,” the man in whose car the two boys died, hails from the same ethnic group in Nigeria as the drug dealer apprehended last week and accused of bringing into the country illicit drug manufacturing equipment. That man’s name was Damain Obi, who bears the same last name of Justin Obi, the Nigerian chemistry professor from Cuttington who shot and killed Episcopal Bishop Dillard Brown in 1969 in Monrovia.In this latest tragedy, in whose car were the two boys found? That of a Nigerian named Ojuku Nmardi, commonly called “OJ.” His name is Ojuku, the same name of the Ibo coup leader who in 1966 overthrew the elected Nigerian officials six years after independence. It was a coup that led the country to a bloody and extended civil war. We can, therefore, reckon that “OJ,” like Damain Obi, is also Ibo, just like Justin who killed the Episcopal bishop.We have no intention of implying anything here—only making connections with names of people who happen to be connected with violence and crime. It must further be emphasized that it has not yet been established that OJ had anything to do with the two boys’ deaths, except that he was their next door neighbor whose home they had visited, and that they died in his car.We pray that Police Commissioner Chris Massaquoi and his team of forensic experts have gotten busy and will shortly come forward with some information that will explain the cause of death of these two very young, precious lives.The public is also anxious to know the outcome of the investigation into the second Obi’s alleged importation into Liberia of equipment to manufacture dangerous, illicit drugs.

first_imgLetterkenny’s Cathedral Quarter is inviting the community to attend a unique event called ‘Imagine Your Cathedral Quarter’.Letterkenny’s Church LaneThis interactive event will ask the community to explore and celebrate the possibilities of Letterkenny’s Church Lane and Cathedral Quarter. On the night, attendees will be invited to contribute to a dedicated ‘Mood Wall’, sharing their memories, knowledge and future ideas of what the Church Lane and Cathedral Quarter in Letterkenny can be.The event will take place in The Regional Cultural Centre in Letterkenny, on Thursday, 29th January at 8.00pm and all are welcome. Cathedral Quarter Chairperson, and former Derry Journal editor, Pat McArt will open the event. Popular Donegal singer songwriter Maria Mc Cormack will perform on the night and there will be an array of other entertainment, including comedy and rap music.

It’s really important that as many people as possible come out to share their memories, ideas and visions for the future of Letterkenny’s Cathedral Quarter.“This event will define the Cathedral Quarter area and the mood wall will be in place for the next year giving people the chance to come forward any time after the event to input to the wall.

The event is free of charge and open to everyone – from the support we have received to date, we’re hoping for a large turnout.”The Cathedral Quarter originally began as the Save the Church Lane campaign. Since its formation last year, the project has gathered significant momentum in its efforts to regenerate the historical Church Lane. The long term goal is to create a hidden treasure in the heart of Letterkenny for locals and tourists to enjoy. The ‘Imagine Your Cathedral Quarter’ event is the community’s opportunity to have its say and actively participate in the future of the town.   WHAT DO YOU WANT IN LETTERKENNY’S CATHEDRAL QUARTER? was last modified: January 15th, 2015 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:Cathedral QuarterChurch Lanedonegalletterkennylast_img read more

first_imgThe Brid Carr Ovarian Cancer Research Fund has been named as the charity to be supported by the RunDonegal Women’s 5K in 2017.The annual event will be held on the 2nd April at 11am at the Finn Valley Centre in Stranorlar. This year, the 5K will raise funds for the charity set up in memory of Glencolmcille woman Brid Car, who was a mum of three living in London with her husband Seamus when she passed away in 2014 following a battle with ovarian cancer. She was 54 years old.Brid had trained as a nurse in The Mater Hospital in Dublin before moving to Great Ormond Street Hospital in London where she was Urology Nurse Specialist. During her chemotherapy treatment, Brid became a prominent campaigner with the charity Ovacome and worked to raise awareness of the disease. Her wish was that her family would continue her commitment to highlightinh ovarian cancer and support Ovarian Cancer Research.Brid’s sister, Rosemary Foy and her family have been raising funds and spreading the word since 2015. They were delighted to learn that RunDonegal Womens 5k have selected the fund as this year’s beneficiary again.“It’s brilliant news. We were so delighted with it. In 2015 we did a few fundraising events and we raised an awful lot of money which co-funded a 3-year PhD Scholarship in the Cork Cancer Research Centre in Cork,” Rosemary told Donegal Woman.The fund reached a target of €50,000 in 2015. Rosemary and her family hope to raise just as much this year. Family of the late Brid Carr promoting the 2015 Run Donegal Women’s 5k. included are daughters Christine and Anna, husband Seamus, son Tom and sister Rosemary Foy. Photo Cristeph/Brian McDaid“We have the 5K event, then Brid’s husband plans to do a charity cycle in May. We’ll be setting up a Facebook group and JustGiving account for that again. The fundraising in 2015 went way beyond our expectations. It would be amazing if we could do it again,” Rosemary said.The other aim of the fundraising events is to make more women aware of ovarian cancer.“Ovarian Cancer is often called the silent killer. It’s unfortunate that it is usually so late that it’s diagnosed. The symptoms are very vague and it is often misdiagnosed. The worst thing about it is the ovarian cancer survival rate is about 20% and it hasn’t changed in the last 20 years. We think research is the only way to fighting it,” Rosemary said.The Brid Carr Ovarian Cancer Research Fund co-funded the education of pHd student Ms Jennifer Quinn at the Cork Cancer Research Centre in 2016. This Research Centre was established to facilitate the interaction between scientists and clinical cancer specialists in the university hospitals. The Centre has a focus on poor prognosis cancers (i.e. those cancers with low survival rate), Ovarian Cancer being one of these.As the funding will be administered through Breakthrough Cancer Research and University College Cork, 100% of this donation will go directly to research. It is the vision of BCR and CCRC that investment in research and people is the way forward in making progress to fight cancer. This funding therefore, will not only contribute to Ovarian Cancer Research – but also to the training of an individual who will then be a specialist in ovarian cancer biology.
