Curry, Durant hit key 3s late, Warriors hold off Raptors

first_imgFerrari’s fast F1 start reduced to late-season flop Curry scored 13 of his points in the third quarter and the defending champions avoided falling to 0-2 at home after losing their opener to Houston on Oct. 17. He made an off-balance layup with 1:28 to go then Golden State made a stop on the other end before Durant’s big three.“We had ourselves in a great position and we made some key mental mistakes that cost us,” DeRozan said. “Nothing went our way, everything went their way in that last minute.”Pascal Siakam scored 20 points as Toronto lost its 13th in a row at Golden State and seventh straight in the series. Serge Ibaka added 15 points and Kyle Lowry 14 points and nine assists.Thompson had two 3s and Durant another from downtown during a 9-0 run late in the second quarter and Thompson another in the waning seconds that put Golden State up 61-53 at the break.Rookie Jordan Bell’s dunk that featured a toss to himself off the backboard Saturday at Memphis drew some debate.Coach Steve Kerr spoke to the first-year forward out of Oregon, whose play had Curry and Durant’s jaws dropping.“I told him after it happened, I said be ready for them to retaliate. He had a bewildered look on his face. I think the issue is you’ve got old-school people, players on our own team, like Shaun Livingston, David West,” Kerr said. “The young guys are like, ‘Man, that was cool.’ I’m sort of in the middle, I never want to embarrass our opponent.”Kerr made a heartfelt message about loving and accepting your neighbor as the Warriors hosted LGBT Pride Night. Warriors President and COO Rick Welts was the first openly gay NBA executive.“There’s never been a more important time in our country to respect the person next to you, regardless of race, creed, color, sexual preference, sexual identity. I’m really encouraged by my kids’ experience here in California growing up, just in terms of acceptance. It seems like the young generation is learning more and more about we all just are who we are. We’re all individuals. What makes our country great is our diversity. The fact that we can respect each other and work together and embrace each other, I think it’s an important night for us. We want to welcome everybody from the LGBTQ community. Maybe, if you’re coming to the game tonight and your child says, ‘What does that mean?’ explain it to them. Explain to them the importance of loving the person next to you, respecting them, no matter who they are, where they come from. They’re human beings, we’re all human beings. We’re all in this together.” Durant finished with 29 points on 11-for-20 shooting, Klay Thompson scored 22 points with four 3-pointers, and Curry capitalized with a huge second half.DeMar DeRozan scored 24 points. He drove through the paint for a dunk with 3:53 to play then hit a key jumper a minute later to put Toronto in position after Curry, Durant and Thompson each missed key 3s down the stretch.Green had 15 points, 11 rebounds, six assists and two steals but also six of Golden State’s 17 turnovers.Jakob Poeltl had 11 of his 14 rebounds on the offensive glass.“It’s a focus thing,” Green said.ADVERTISEMENT 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 MOST READ It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

‘Proposition #24 A Sticky Issue’

first_imgPresident Pro Tempore of the Liberian Senate, Armah Zolu Jallah, has described Proposition #24 calling for Christianizing Liberia as a sticky issue that needs to be handled with care.He has therefore cautioned Senators against attempting to make political gains on it during the ensuing electioneering period. The proposition is among those submitted to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf by the Constitution Review Committee and subsequently sent to the National Legislature for a referendum. It is opposed by many institutions, including the Liberian Council of Churches and some prominent citizens, among themSenators and Representatives. Pro Temp Jallah called on all Liberians to work to promote their respective faiths and beliefs without badmouthing others. In a recent statement, Senator Jallah urged his colleagues to remain committed to keeping the Senate united and reconciled, and by extension, the country. “I therefore promise to preside over a body in which each Senator will feel a part of the whole, a Senate in which our differences wouldn’t put us apart, but that we will recognize that what binds us together is stronger and greater than what divides us.”The Pro Temp challenged fellow Senators to walk into that unity as one people to make laws for the common good of Liberia and the future of tomorrow’s leaders and populace. “Under our administration, this Senate will remain engaged with the Executive and Judiciary branches of government to ensure that checks and balances enshrined in our Constitution are kept and will never ever compromise its integrity nor lend support to anything that will be a semblance of public ridicule to any of you,” Jallah noted. He however asserted that as a universal custom, “in the event of disagreement over the conduct of our business, I promise to listen to you more; this approach, in my humble opinion, will advance us on higher grounds of intellectual discipline and public uprightness in the discharge of our obligatory responsibilities.”The Gbarpolu County lawmaker called on county caucuses to solidify their unity in their forward march for the good of their people, reminding them that “no one can ever do business with a divided people.” “Let us continue to hold consultations with our staffers on issues of national concern and those that intend to bring this institution to public disrespect; let us continue to seek opportunities for the Senate and those who ably assist us in our daily performance,” he said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Compliance, enforcement lacking in mining sector: report

first_imgVICTORIA, B.C. – B.C.’s Auditor General said almost all of their expectations for a compliance and enforcement program of the mining sector weren’t met.Along with 16 distinct supporting recommendations, this report recommends that B.C. create an integrated and independent compliance and enforcement unit, and calls for taking out the mining sector compliance and enforcement program from the Ministry of Energy and Mines.“The compliance and enforcement activities of both the Ministry of Energy and Mines, and the Ministry of Environment are not set up to protect the province from environmental risks,” said Carol Bellringer, B.C.’s Auditor General.- Advertisement -Major gaps were found in resources, planning and tolls in both ministries, meaning both ministries don’t have enough staff to address a growing number of permits, and staff have to work with ‘cumbersome and incomplete data systems.’Additionally, some mining companies have not provided government with enough financial security deposits to cover potential reclamation costs if a mining company defaults on its obligations.According to the province, it’s underfunded by over $1 billion and that debt could fall on taxpayers.Advertisement Given the sheer scale of mining in B.C., and because the environmental impacts of mining can last forever, the report emphasizes the critical need for regulatory enforcement, as the environmental risks of mining are increasing, but compliance and enforcement are decreasing.last_img read more
