General manager Elton Brand said prior to Saturday’s game against Toronto that he has no timetable for Fultz’s return to basketball activities.Brand said it was “to be determined” if Fultz will play again this season.“I can’t say right now,” Brand said.The GM expects to update Fultz’s situation in “a few weeks.”Fultz was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 draft, but his career has been sidetracked by injuries and ineffectiveness.TIP-INS ‘Mia’: Rom-com with a cause a career-boosting showcase for Coleen Garcia Philadelphia 76ers’ Ben Simmons goes up for a dunk during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Toronto Raptors, Saturday, Dec. 22, 2018, in Philadelphia.

first_imgAgainst the backdrop of the Liberian government’s announcement that it would “consider cremating” (burning) the corpses of those who have died from the deadly Ebola virus, the burial team from the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOH/SW) on Saturday dumped at least 45 bodies in Kissi Camp, near the Kpeh-kpeh Town Community, Upper Johnsonville, just northwest of the City of Paynesville. Guarded by a heavily armed platoon of the Liberian Army as well as Police Support Unit (PSU) officers from the Liberia National Police, two mini trucks conveyed the corpses to the west bank of the Kpanwein River to be dropped off in mass graves dug by a hired yellow machine.The Kpanwein River connects the Kpeh-Kpeh Town Community to Whein Town in the east and Chicken Soup Factory on Somalia Drive in the west, as well as Upper and Lower Johnsonville and many other communities.Since the first truckload of corpses arrived Saturday, residents of Johnsonville have vehemently rejected the use of their community to dispose of the bodies.  According to Kpeh-Kpeh Town Chief Joseph S. Karway, the community’s main concern is that the plot of land where the graves have been dug is a wetland on the bank of a river that is a source of water for many surrounding communities. They fear that their wells – from which they get water for drinking and domestic use – will get contaminated, exposing them to other diseases. Furthermore, the land designated for the disposal of the corpses is privately owned, with cornerstones conspicuously planted and marked.  One of the landowners, a businessman named Mr. Cole, said he was never contacted regarding the use of the piece of land he had purchased with a probated deed for his son, Joseph F. Dolo (cornerstone marked: JFD).  “I’m not asking them to pay me [money] for my land.  I’m going to take the authorities to task for illegally using my land to bury dead bodies,” he said.Enraged that they had not been informed that their community would play host to such a burial site given the implications involved, youth from Kpeh-kpeh Town and nearby communities started felling trees across the road, denying passage to the vehicles en route to bury the dead. The PSU responded with brutal action which turned bloody for some of the resistant residents.  The police were backed by troops of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) commanded by 1st Lieutenant Alloycious Quaye of the Military Police Unit (MP).1st Lt Quaye told the Daily Observer that the AFL’s duty was to provide ‘security’ for the yellow machine and other government vehicles that were assigned with the process of burying the bodies in the area.”But in the process, some residents who tried to put up resistance to the process — identified as Carey Daniel, Sheriff, Armstrong, and few other persons, among them, a couple, Prince and Patience Yormie — were allegedly brutalized by the LNP officers.For his part, Johnsonville Township Commissioner, Melvin Bettie, told the Daily Observer that he was indirectly connected to the dumping of the bodies, because, when approached by the MOH/SW authorities, he could not immediately provide a burial site for the corpses.According to him, he was not the one who ordered the execution of the burial exercise, but “because of my job, I assigned the Land Commissioner, Michael Taylor, to supervise the process.”Mr. Taylor is yet to comment regarding his involvement.While it is not yet clear exactly who authorized the burial of the Ebola corpses in that location, this is a glaring example of the Liberian government’s lack of coordination and capacity to handle the effects of the Ebola epidemic. The yellow machine broke down after a few graves were dug and, as a result, several other bodies were left floating in holes of water, not properly buried. The corpses, according to our security source, were those collected from several other local hospitals including the ones picked up from the ELWA Hospital, particularly at the Ebola ‘Quarantine’ Unit.The corpses were accompanied by corresponding plywood pegs bearing their respective names, ages and dates of death. However, the pegs were left scattered on the ground with no apparent attempt to mark the graves of the deceased.Among the corpses deposited there is that of the late Dr. Patrick Nshamdze, 57, who expired on August 1, 2014.  He was a Cameroonian and the Chief Administrator of the St. Joseph’s Catholic Hospital in Congo Town, Monrovia. Others include: Vivian Pewe, 24; Joyce Paul, 28; John Forkpah, 27; Musu Johnson, 39, Sister Shalor, 35; Gerald K. Kollie, 45; Joe Gbozeh, 50; Mercy Dahn, 35; James D. Paul, 35; Joy Moses, 58; Augustine Jalo, 45; Isatu Joe, 20; Mamie S. Kparteh, 29; and Edward K. Brown, 63; Lusu Fayia, 60; Hawa Sirleaf, 24; Krubo Carter; 17, Korpo E. Kollie, 25; and Kollie Klemie, 60; among others. They all died at various locations reportedly of the Ebola-like symptoms between July 29 and August 1, 2014.Up to press time last night, the Observer reliably learnt that authorities of the MOH/SW were transporting more corpses to the site for dumping.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 Daryl Janmaat is undergoing treatment for groin and hand injuries 1 Newcastle defender Daryl Janmaat is out of the club’s Premier League clash with Swansea after undergoing treatment for groin and hand injuries.The Magpies confirmed on Thursday afternoon that the Holland international, who is understood to have broken two fingers when he punched a dressing room wall in frustration after last Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Southampton, will miss the match. He also suffered the groin injury at St Mary’s.A statement said: “Newcastle United defender Daryl Janmaat is currently undergoing treatment for a groin injury suffered during the game against Southampton on Saturday. The 26-year-old defender has also undergone treatment for a hand injury sustained the same day.“Janmaat will be unavailable for the club’s forthcoming fixture against Swansea at the weekend. He will be reviewed further next week and the club will provide an update in due course.”Newcastle are currently six points adrift of safety with as many games remaining and need to beat Swansea if they are to stand any chance of remaining in the race for survival.They also face Manchester City at St James’ Park on Tuesday, and the next two matches could go a long way towards deciding their fate.last_img read more

first_img“We really just had to step it up,” Taylor said. “You can’t lose games (in conference) this early. We got the seniors back in there and got it back to the basics. “It got kind of out of control there for about four minutes. We tried to go one-on-one too much.” Whittier’s Raphael Farlough led all scorers with 22 points. Brandon Robinson had 14 points for the Poets and Tim Fanning scored eight. The game was tied 26-26 at halftime even though the Poets trailed by as many as 10 points (24-14) in the first half. Neither team shot well in the half. Whittier made only 10 of 24 shots for 41.7 percent; CMS was even worse, making 9 of 25 for 36 percent. The Poets (6-7, 0-2) quickly took a four-point lead at the outset of the second half, but CMS tied the game 33-33 with 13:59 to play. Back and forth it went until the Poets opened their biggest lead, 48-40, with 6:43 left. The Stags kept their composure, and once they got Whittier into overtime, they had all the momentum. Robinson had a chance to win the game for the Poets in regulation, but came up short on a 14-footer at the buzzer. Robinson also had a chance to tie the game in overtime, but his 3-point attempt missed at the final horn. “We had two or three opportunities, but we didn’t execute,” Carter said. “That’s the bottom line. We’ve lost a couple of games this season at the end like this because we don’t execute. “We didn’t set screens, we didn’t take the good shot.” CMS out-rebounded Whittier 38-34 and each team had 13 turnovers. robert.morales@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2213 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

And that was that. “We were actually just hoping to get a split, and we had an opportunity to win both of them,” Carter said. “So that even doubles the frustration. “But you know, our guys compete. They play hard. We still have a lot of basketball to play. It’s the old cliche; take it one game at a time. But we have our work cut out for us.” Taylor scored 15 points and had a game-high 16 rebounds for CMS. Emanuel Maceira scored 18 points for the Stags, who are 8-5 overall and 2-0 in conference, and John Parsons scored 11. Taylor scored two clutch baskets down the stretch in regulation that were crucial in helping CMS get to overtime. But the Poets, after losing a close game at defending champion Pomona-Pitzer on Wednesday, lost Saturday at Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, 60-57, in overtime. Making things worse, Whittier led by four points late in both games.

first_imgUNITED NATIONS – The United States, France and Britain on Tuesday demanded that Syria detain government officials suspected of involvement in the assassination of a former Lebanese prime minister and ensure their cooperation with a U.N. probe or face possible sanctions. The call was contained in a strongly worded draft resolution that orders Syria to make the suspected officials or individuals “fully and unconditionally available” to investigators who have accused Syria of obstructing their work. That language was a clear attempt to pressure Syria into giving the probe access to top security officials – possibly including the brother-in-law of President Bashar Assad – who may have been involved in the Feb. 14 assassination of Rafik Hariri. In a report released last week, chief U.N. investigator Detlev Mehlis implicated top Syrian and Lebanese security officials in the assassination and said Syria was not cooperating fully with his probe. Syria hotly denies those claims. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week The central challenge now for the resolution will be getting the support of Russia and China, which have been hesitant to use the threat of sanctions to back up a call for more Syrian cooperation. President George W. Bush insisted Tuesday that the United Nations hold Syrian leaders “accountable for their continuing support of terrorism.” Yet Russian President Vladimir Putin, in a phone conversation Tuesday with Assad, welcomed Syria’s stated willingness to cooperate with the investigation and emphasized that the council must proceed carefully. The two discussed the “urgent need for cautious action by the international community in order to prevent the emergence of new sources of tension in the region,” the Kremlin said in a statement. The new draft spells out a list of stern measures against Syria. It would slap an immediate travel ban and asset freeze on suspects identified by the commission. It states that Syria must allow interviews to take place outside the country and without Syrian official presence – a key concern of the Mehlis. “I think we’ve learned something about trying to interview witnesses in an authoritarian society,” U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said in a reference to U.S. efforts to interview Iraqi scientists during its hunt for weapons of mass destruction. If Syria does not fully cooperate with the investigation, the draft says the council intends to consider “further measures,” including sanctions, “to ensure compliance by Syria.” In an appearance before the council earlier Tuesday, Mehlis urged Syria to help “fill in the gaps” about who orchestrated the car bombing that killed Hariri and 20 other people in Beirut. “I cannot send 500 investigators, which I do not have, to Syria to look for documents because I do not know where I would find them,” he told reporters after emerging from the council meeting. “It would be a good idea if the Syrian authorities made an extra effort by themselves.” France’s Ambassador Jean-Marc de la Sabliere said: “We should not tolerate anything short of full cooperation.” The Security Council could hold a meeting Monday, attended by the 15 members’ foreign ministers, to adopt the resolution, U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said. Diplomats say the presence of the foreign ministers would give the resolution added weight and increase pressure on Syria. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
