Clarkson sparks injury-riddled Cavaliers past Hornets

first_imgCavaliers coach Larry Drew gave a rundown of the team’s injuries in his pregame media session and then asked, “Who’m I missing? Is that it?”Thompson was a key member of the team that went to four straight NBA Finals and won the championship in 2016. Despite the injuries and early season drama that included coach Tyronn Lue being fired after an 0-6 start, he knows the players must keep their heads up.“We’ve got to,” he said. “This is the NBA. We can’t feel sorry for ourselves. It’s a month into the season. We have to keep pushing and keep getting better.”Kemba Walker, the league’s third-leading scorer, was held to a season-low seven points and was 2 for 16 from the field. The Hornets star guard was averaging 27.9 points going into the game.“This was one of those nights,” Walker said. “I got to all my spots, was able to take all my shots.

Clippers get things back into focus

first_img“With his injury, he’s with us,” Elton Brand said of Livingston. “We’re not putting it behind us because he’s with us. If anybody can rehab from it, I know he can. He’s young and has a great will. We didn’t want to dedicate this game to him because anything less than a blowout wouldn’t have been enough.” The Clippers might have been inspired to do just that early on, as they went up by as many as 12 points in the second quarter. But Seattle recovered to lead 75-74 heading into the fourth quarter. Corey Maggette made twofree throws with 27.6 seconds left to give the Clippers a 93-91 lead. After Seattle’s Earl Watson (UCLA) turned the ball over, Chris Kaman added to the Clippers’ lead with two free throws with 10.9 seconds left. Elton Brand added one of two free throws with 1.2 seconds left. But the win could come with a price. The teams’ play again tonight in Seattle, and how Sam Cassell (abdominal strain), Cuttino Mobley (strained groin) and Tim Thomas (back spasms) respond is anybody’s guess. The victory kept the Clippers tied for the West’s eighth playoff spot with New Orleans, which also won Wednesday night, 107-100 over Atlanta. It was the first game for the Clippers since seeing Livingston go down with a horrific left knee injury Monday, in which he dislocated his left knee and kneecap and tore his anterior cruciate ligament, posterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament and lateral meniscus. “Sometimes, you’re guessing whether they’re telling you the truth, saying `I’m fine. I’m fine,”‘ Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said. “Then you see them dragging their leg up the court. I was limited on minutes with how much they were supposed to play, but I went over on all of these guys.” But to put things in perspective, Mobley said: “Working 9 to 5 is tough. Getting up early in the morning, 5 o’clock, to feed your kids – that’s tough.” The bumps and bruises could not come at a less opportune time for the Clippers. They are already trying to figure out how to recover from losing Livingston, who averaged 29.8 minutes per game. Cassell figures to log in more minutes at point guard, but he has been fighting an abdominal strain. When asked if he could play 35 minutes per night, said, “I don’t think so, but I’ll try.” Cassell played 34 minutes and had 16 points, five assists and five rebounds for the Clippers. Daniel Ewing, Cassell’s backup, played 13 minutes and had four assists and two points. Dunleavy met with Livingston on Wednesday and offered encouraging words. “He seemed good,” Dunleavy said. “He looked good, and he’s an intelligent kid. He understands what the situation is. The good news is that he’s not the first guy jumping out of an airplane without a parachute. There have been guys before.” Brand had an off night shooting, going 5 of 14 from the field, but he passed the ball well. He finished with 18 points, nine rebounds and seven assists. Maggette also had 18 points as six Clippers scored in double figures. joe.stevens@presstelegram.com. (562) 499-1338 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: ALCOHOL

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: Now that I have your attention, we will begin…..Alcohol is part of our society.80% of people over 18 in Ireland drink alcohol. 81% of males drink and 79% of females drink.90% of 18 – 29 year old males and 89% of 18 – 29 year old females, drink.In 2011, beer represented 48% of the alcohol consumed in Ireland, wine 26%, spirits 19% and cider 7%.So, it is safe to say that we are a nation who likes a drink. One of the most common questions that I get asked when I am having a consultation with someone, be it for weight loss or muscle gain, is ‘Can I still drink alcohol?’My answer is as it always is with questions like this, yes…but the yes comes with a big but, or should that be butt?What many people fail to take into consideration are the effects that alcohol will have on their goals.If your goal is weight loss and you feel that you are ‘being good’ and ‘eating healthy’ during the week, the question is, can a weekend’s drinking mess it up on you?As Sheldon Cooper would say, ‘Let’s do the math’ Beer came out on top as the drink of choice, so we will start the night with that.A 330ml bottle of beer has 142 calories, if you drink pints that number increases to 244 calories.So, if we take that the start of the night for most will be around 5-6 bottles or pints before hitting the night club, you will have already hit 852 calories for the bottle drinkers and 1464 calories for the drinker of pints.Now the fun begins. You hit the nightclub and it’s party time.You move onto spirits.Vodka has 95 calories per half and just like Pringles, you can’t only have one, so let’s average it out to 4. Of course, because we’re watching our weight, we will mix it with diet coke.4 x vodkas + diet coke = 384 caloriesFor our bottle drinkers, the grand total for a night is 1236 calories.For our pint drinkers, the grand total for one night is 1848 calories.This isn’t even allowing for Redbull, shots, full sugar mixers or a trip to the takeaway at the end of the night.(By the way, if you mixed the vodkas with Redbull, the total would be 608 calories instead of 384 calories.)Add in a takeaway at the end that would add on around 838 calories.This is one night, one night with a possible higher end total of between 2298 and 2910 calories.Then you wake up the next day and start back into your diet again and all is right with the world………..or you wake up with a hangover and have to have something, to take the taste of alcohol and that kebab you think you ate, out of your mouth.Breakfast might be a fry-up that can have anything between 700 – 1200 calories depending on how bad that kebab tasted.What you also need to know is that a lot of the calories in alcohol are ‘empty calories’ they are virtually useless to the body, so when you drink alcohol fat burning stops until the alcohol calories are burned off first, so everything that you ate that day could be stored as fat.As I have said before, weight loss comes down to calories in versus calories out.If you are in a moderate calorie deficit all week, a weekend of drinking can easily mess up your goals and leave you wondering where it all went wrong.#TrainSmartFor further information on Personal Training and Nutrition you can contact me through the link below.https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Personal-Training-and-Performance/120518884715118* Emmet is the owner and operator of Rushe Personal Training and PerformanceEMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: ALCOHOL was last modified: April 7th, 2014 by John2Share 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:alcoholemmet rushefitnesslast_img read more

LOCAL ENTERPRISE OFFICE UNVEILS SUPERB AUTUMN TRAINING SCHEDULE

first_imgEDUCATION: A countywide series of meetings for creative entrepreneurs are just among some of the brilliant Autumn events and training opportunities being provided by Donegal Local Enterprise Office over the coming months.The training opportunities will also include workshops for writing a business plan, starting your own food business and small business accounts as the Local Enterprise Office continues to engage with and assist businesses across the county. “The role of the Local Enterprise Office is to assist established businesses and start-ups and a key part of that is to communicate with them and help them identify areas where they feel they require assistance.The workshops and training opportunities we provide are designed and made available because they are the things that people in business have asked for,” Michael Tunney Head of Enterprise and Donegal Local Enterprise Office said.He added that they would also be holding a Start Your Own Business Programme over six consecutive Wednesdays, starting on 7th October adding that it is aimed at people thinking of starting their own business or in the early stages of start-up, with a well-researched business idea they are capable of commercialising.Textile artist Michelle McKee who is now based at the Craft Village in Donegal Town, took part in a previous Start Your Own Business programme and found it a very worthwhile exercise. “I guess everyone there had various reasons for being there, but for me in particular I needed to get my head around the financial end of things, to work the projections and the figures and to see if I could make a living from my art.”During the programme Michelle says there were lots of different aspects of setting up a business explained and worked through.“Doing the Start Your Own Business programme with Donegal Local Enterprise Office, helped me realise that I had a viable business idea and now that I have engaged with them and am established, I know I can go back to the Local Enterprise Office for help and advice if I need to,” she concluded.The Small Business Accounts Programme will run for 10 consecutive Mondays starting 5th October and is aimed at owner/managers or accounts staff from small businesses.“The course will cover requirements for self employment, registration and VAT, layout of books, sales invoicing, profit and loss accounts, credit control and the wages and tax system for employees,” said Mr Tunney.He added that the one-day Writing a Business Plan Workshop on Monday 2nd November is aimed at anyone that wishes to write a new business plan or update an existing business plan. “The workshop will provide practical information that will aid in achieving realistic business objectives,” said Mr Tunney.In addition the Local Enterprise Office will host a series of meetings for creative entrepreneurs as work continues to establish networks for creative entrepreneurs.“One of the key components of Donegal’s Creative Strategy is to establish networks where information sharing and peer learning, exchange of ideas and skills enhancement, connection building and collaboration can all happen,” said Head of Enterprise in Donegal, Michael Tunney.To deliver on this he said, Donegal Local Enterprise Office are hosting the four meetings and are hoping that all those interested in building a career in the creative industries in Donegal will attend. Meetings will be held in Carndonagh, Donegal Town, Gweedore and Letterkenny as Donegal Local Enterprise Office works to assist the creative sector in the county to put the groundwork in place to establish the creative networks.For more information and to book your place on any of the programmes or workshops visit the Local Enterprise Office website – https://www.localenterprise.ie/Donegal/News/Donegal-Local-Enterprise-Office-unveils-Autumn-2015-training-schedule.htmlLOCAL ENTERPRISE OFFICE UNVEILS SUPERB AUTUMN TRAINING SCHEDULE was last modified: September 22nd, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:BusinessFeaturesnewslast_img read more

DONEGAL DAD WHO LOST SONS IN SUPERSTORM WANTS TO START NEW FAMILY

first_imgA Donegal dad whose two children died during Superstorm Sandy wants to start a new family with his wife.Brandon and Connor Moore who died in Superstorm SandyDamien Moore, from Portnoo and wife Glenda have been haunted by the loss of Connor, four and Brandon, two, during the devastating storm.Glenda revealed how she never returned to her home following the death of her two boys. The children were swept from their mother’s arms as the hurricane battered Staten Island just over a year ago.Speaking publicly for the first time, Glenda, 40, said she and Damien spend “every minute” thinking about the boys.Glenda also revealed she and Damien, 40, want to have more children.Damien and wife GlendaSpeaking to US TV, Glenda, 40, said the anniversary of the storm on October 29 had been a “tough week, it’s been a year since we lost the boys”. She added: “At least we’re busy during the day but at night it’s tough. We’re always thinking about the boys.”Damien emigrated to the US to work and married Carribbean-born Glenda in 2009.Brandon and Connor were among the 268 people who died from Superstorm Sandy when it ravaged the East coast of the US last October.Neighbours refused to help Glenda when she knocked on their doors saying: “I don’t know you. I’m not going to help you.”She was left to sit on the street for 12 hours until dawn when she flagged down a police car. Glenda had got stuck trying to leave Staten Island as the 14ft storm surge swelled around her Ford Explorer SUV.She unbuckled Brandon and Connor from their seat belts and put one of them under each arm, but as she got out the car a giant wave sucked them away.Their bodies were found three days later in marshland a short distance away.Glenda, a nurse, said she and Damien, a sanitation worker, are keen to start a new family and want to move into their new home in Brooklyn. She added her patients got her though her misery over the past 12 months as they make her laugh.DONEGAL DAD WHO LOST SONS IN SUPERSTORM WANTS TO START NEW FAMILY was last modified: November 6th, 2013 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:Bran MooreDAMIAN MOOREGLENDA MOOREPortnooSuperstorm Sandylast_img read more
