Moore wins third MVP award as Parker beats Delle Donne

first_imgQuigley beat a field of six participants to win her second straight WNBA Three-Point Contest at halftime. After she and McBride tied with 18 in the head-to-head finals, Quigley caught fire in redo, scoring 29 of a possible 34 points and sending the crowd — and the sidelines — into a frenzy.“How did we follow the 3-point contest?” asked Parker, who called it her personal highlight of the day. “We had some of the best shooters in the world competing. To have to make 21 to even get into the top two, to then have a shoot off, to then have Allie hit 29? … That was awesome.”THROWING IT DOWNWings star Liz Cambage capped off the contest with a dunk, becoming the sixth different player to do it in the game.“I was going to pull up and take a 3, but Candace said I should dunk it so I did,” said Cambage, a 6-foot-8 post who set a WNBA single-game scoring record earlier this year with 53 points.With talk of adding a skills contest to next year’s festivities, Quigley playfully suggested Cambage push for a dunk contest, a suggestion that the gregarious Australian shut down instantly.“Girl, I’m getting old now. I’m not in my early 20s (anymore),” said Cambage, who turns 27 next month.LOCAL LEGENDSFour players from the hometown Minnesota Lynx were selected for the game, two on each roster, creating a festive atmosphere with the crowd cheering loudly for both sides throughout the game. Moore and Brunson (four points, five rebounds) played for the winning side, while Seimone Augustus (14 points) and Sylvia Fowles (two points, six rebounds) played for Team Delle Donne.PASSING THE TORCH LATEST STORIES DepEd’s Taal challenge: 30K students displaced View comments MOST READ Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Toliver made five 3s in the final 5 minutes of the game as Team Delle Donne came back from a 14-point deficit.

That allowed for the rosters to be heavily dominated (16 of the 22 players) by the Western Conference, home of six of the top seven teams in the league standings.“You’re not going to make a bad pick,” Parker said of the process. “Everybody who’s out here is here is here for a reason, so it was just about having fun and playing with players you haven’t ever played with.”DEFENDING THE CROWNADVERTISEMENT “Thank you for your concern for my storage space,” Moore deadpanned after she was asked the question again after she scored 18 points, grabbed eight rebounds, and dished out six assists to win the MVP award on her home court.“It’s crazy, it really is, to just be fortunate enough to continue to be in positions to win, to be playing well, to be healthy,” said Moore, who joined Lisa Leslie as the only three-time MVP of the game and became the all-time scoring leader in All-Star history, passing Tamika Catchings’ mark of 108 points.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’Allie Quigley of the Chicago Sky also scored 18 points and Skylar Diggins-Smith of the Dallas Wings added 17 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists for Team Parker.Team Delle Donne’s Kristi Toliver of the Washington Mystics led all scorers with 23 points, including 7-for-11 shooting on 3-pointers.

Man, 29, Follows Family Tradition to Feed Kids on Gurley Street

first_imgA young man carried three sacks of mineral water to a location packed with children of all ages, as Mr. Phillip Gibson, administrator of J. L. Gibson Memorial School, gave instructions, directing the children to wash their hands to receive their food.“Food ready,” several children shouted towards the other side of the street down Gurley Street in Monrovia, “It’s time to eat.” That refrain has been heard since October 2014 when the Ebola outbreak in Liberia rendered many parents unable to provide food for their children.Mr. Gibson, 29, who went on directing the children to take their proper places on the queue, told the Daily Observer later in an interview last Saturday that, “Nearly 150 children come to me for their meal every Saturday.”Following a family tradition, neighbors said the Philips not only provided food for those who could not afford it in the past but also provided education through the family owned J.L. Gibson Memorial School.Now, Gibson is happy to continue the tradition his parents and grandparents started to benefit less fortunate Liberians many years ago, before he was born.“I realized during the height of the Ebola crisis in 2014 that food was scarce for many on Gurley Street and nearby communities so I decided to provide food free for the children,” Gibson said.So, every Saturday, it has now become a tradition for children, some as young as six months accompanied by an older sibling, to get their plates ready and wait for their food.“They enjoy this provision,” Gibson admitted, and said he hoped that he could expand the program to put the children in school as part of his contribution towards the education of Liberians.Assisted by volunteers, Ms. Akma K. Aaron and Ms. Diana Zeabo, busied themselves to get the food ready as the number of children and the noise increased.“Everyone must join the line to get your food,” Gibson instructed them, as they giggled, while some younger ones cried.The children came from every corner of central Monrovia as the time struck 4 p.m., with their plates in their hands, with the only condition, according to Gibson, being that they wash their hands with chlorinated water and join the line.The two women volunteers, who told the Daily Observer that they enjoy feeding the children, filled plate after plate of rice, topped off with large spoons of potato greens, and handed them to the excited youngsters, as they jubilated during our visit.Each child is also handed a bag of mineral water, after which they are off to consume their food. Gibson revealed that he spends US$150 to US$200 every Saturday to cook for the children.“I am supported by friends who see the need to make financial contributions to the project,” Gibson said. He commended his friends, including Mr. Henry Jackson, owner of nearby Exodus Entertainment Center, for their assistance.In brief interviews with the children, Blessing Esther, 6, said she enjoys the food and wants God to bless Mr. Gibson and his friends.Said Lawrence Junior Gbafred, 9, “I want God to bless Mr. Gibson and everyone helping us,” as he smiled and walked away with his bowl of food and a bag of mineral water, as others waited in line for theirs.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Starlets had come from a goal down with Jade Boho Sayo scoring in the 38th minute, but a brilliant strike from Teresa Engesha took Kenya level.Starlets left the best for the final minutes of the game with two substitutes combining, Akida side footing a low cross from Cynthia Shilwatso.David Ouma’s girls looked organized from the first minute, playing a structured game but failed to get much in attack.Inside the opening minute, they had the first chance when Mwanahalima Adam’s cross from the right fell on Neddy Atieno, but the army girl’s first control let her off with the ball going too close to the keeper.Harambee Stars midfielder Sheryl Angachi heads the ball away in their African Women’s Cup of Nation qualifier against Equatorial Guinea at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on June 6, 2018.

The home girls had another golden chance in the 58th minute when Akida laid up Adam with a cross from the left but the striker’s effort on the volley went just wide.On the other end, Kenyan keeper Atieno made a brilliant save to tip over a header from Gloria Chinasa who had gone high unmarked from another of Anonman’s deliveries.Ouma decided to go all out attack, pulling out Neddy Atieno and goal scorer Engesha for Mercy Achieng and Cynthia Shilwatso.Harambee Starlets striker Teresia Engesha tries to control the ball under pressure from Equatorial Guinea’s Esperanza Mbang Mba during their African Women’s Cup of Nation at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on June 6, 2018.

Adam almost scored the second in the 73rd minute when she attempted to catch the keeper off her line with a shot from range, but the custodian managed to backtrack and turn the ball behind for a corner.The pressure finally bore fruit with six minutes to play when Akida turned up at the edge of the six yard box to turn home a cross from Shilwatso which found the Equatorial Guinea backline off their feet.The girls managed to seal their rear and ensured they kept the slim win.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Brazil’s Tite defends Neymar over Capello ‘diver’ jibe

first_imgCapello was unimpressed with Neymar’s performance in Brazil’s 2-0 win against Costa Rica, when the referee awarded him a penalty but overturned it when VAR showed their was minimal contact.“For me he’s a diver,” Capello said. “He throws himself easily to the ground but he is a great player, he is also a champion.“He has more genius than (Cristiano) Ronaldo but less power, even if in these games he did not show (his) change of pace, dribbling and his imagination.”It’s not the first time Capello has singled out Paris Saint-Germain striker Neymar for criticism, saying in 2014 that he had “a very annoying attitude” and “falls to the ground every time you touch him”.Tite was asked by a Russian journalist about Capello’s remarks and whether Brazil had a special diving coach.The Brazil coach addressed his reply directly to Capello before refusing to comment further.“Capello, this is for you, from coach to coach, it was a penalty, OK, it was a penalty. That’s all,” he said.Neymar’s habits have become so notorious that a bar in Rio de Janeiro is offering patrons free shots every time he falls over in the match against Serbia.“At each Neymar fall, it’s a round of shots on the house!” the Sir Walter Pub in northern Rio posted on its Facebook page.In his defence, the world’s most expensive player can point to statistics showing that he comes in for unusually rough treatment from opposition teams.He easily leads the table at the World Cup for number of fouls against him: 10 in the first game against Switzerland and four against Costa Rica.Five-time world champions Brazil need a draw against Serbia in Moscow to advance to the last 16 after unconvincing performances in their opening matches, with many critics blaming Neymar.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Brazil’s Neymar trains in Sochi © AFP / Nelson AlmeidaMOSCOW, Russian Federation, Jun 26 – Brazil coach Tite leapt to Neymar’s defence Tuesday after former England and Real Madrid boss Fabio Capello labelled the star forward a “diver” over his World Cup theatrics.Tite was in a buoyant mood ahead of Brazil’s final Group E match against Serbia on Wednesday until asked about Capello’s remarks to Italian television.last_img read more

Warrant not needed to enter DUI suspects’ homes

first_imgThompson’s blood-alcohol level was 0.21, almost three times the legal limit for driving. He was convicted and handed a three-year suspended sentence. A state court of appeal tossed the conviction, saying Thompson’s constitutional rights were violated.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SAN FRANCISCO – Police may enter Californians’ homes without warrants to arrest those suspected of driving under the influence, the California Supreme Court ruled Thursday in a case testing the scope of the Fourth Amendment right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures. The 6-1 decision follows similar rulings in about a dozen other states. A dissenting justice said the majority handed authorities a “free pass” to unlawfully enter private homes and arrest people without warrants. Under the Fourth Amendment, authorities are prohibited from entering a home and making an arrest without a warrant unless so-called “exigent” circumstances are present. Those include “hot pursuit” of a fleeing felon, imminent destruction of evidence and the risk of danger to the police or other persons inside or outside of a house, among others. In this case, Justice Marvin Baxter wrote that the loss of evidence at issue was obtaining a measurement of the suspect’s blood-alcohol level. Baxter added that a contrary ruling would allow “the corruption of evidence that occurs when the suspect takes advantage of any delay to ingest more alcohol – or to claim to have done so – or when the suspect evades police capture until he or she is no longer intoxicated.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2Baxter was cautious in saying the decision would not give police carte blanche powers. “In holding that exigent circumstances justified the warrantless entry here, we need not decide, and do not hold, that the police may enter a home without a warrant to effect an arrest of a DUI suspect in every case,” he wrote. In dissent, Justice Kathryn Mickle Werdegar said the majority was fooling itself. There is “always” the possibility that a suspect might destroy evidence, especially in drug and bookmaking cases in which officers routinely obtain warrants, she said. The case concerned the 2003 Santa Barbara arrest of Daniel Thompson, whom a neighbor suspected was driving drunk and notified authorities. They found a parked car matching the description the neighbor provided and went to the front door of the adjoining residence during a summer evening. The door was open and a woman said the car’s driver was asleep. Moments later, Thompson walked by the officers and they entered the house and arrested him. last_img read more
