When he didn’t hear a whistle, James screamed and gestured toward referee Kane Fitzgerald, who quickly called a technical and pointed for the three-time champion to leave the floor.It was the first time James had been thrown out in 1,082 career NBA games, and he said it was a first since he started playing basketball as a boy in Akron.

Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James leaves the court after being ejected for a double technical in the second half of an NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat, Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017, in Cleveland. The Cavaliers won 108-97. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak)CLEVELAND — LeBron James lost his cool. Kevin Love and Cavaliers stayed just as hot.Incensed at not getting a foul called on a drive to the basket, James was ejected for the first time in his illustrious career on Tuesday night, tossed in the third quarter of Cleveland’s 108-97 win over the Miami Heat.ADVERTISEMENT “On that particular play I got fouled all the way up the court, from the time that I stripped him (Johnson) all the way until I got to the rim, and so that’s what it’s about,” James said. “I said what I had to say and I moved on, but he (Fitzgerald) thought that I should get two of them, so it is … we got the win and that’s most important.”James has long complained about not getting calls near the basket, and hinted that his eruption may have been caused by pent-up frustration.“I’m one of the league leaders in points in the paint,” he said. “I drive just as much as anybody. At this point, it’s almost like they’re trying to turn me into a jump shooter. I can’t be a jump shooter. I’m not a jump shooter. I watch games every single night and I see jump shooters going to the line multiple, double-digit times every night.“I’m not a jump shooter and I get fouled just as much as everybody else, so it’s going to the line one time, three times or four times, that’s not what it’s about.”Fitzgerald said he couldn’t let James’ actions go unpunished.ADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ “It was a culmination of a couple different acts,” he told a pool reporter. “Immediately after the no-call, he turned and threw an air punch directly at me and then he aggressively charged at me and then he used vulgarity in my ear a few times.”Love had his way with every defender Miami put on him, finishing 10 of 16 from the field and 14 of 17 on free throws. He scored 22 in the first quarter and the Cavs opened a 27-point lead before halftime.Dwyane Wade added 17 points for Cleveland, which has shaken off a slow start and is again playing like the team to beat in the Eastern Conference.Wade said he has seen James that mad before.“I just ain’t never seen him get ejected,” Wade said. “But I’ve definitely seen him that mad before. He only got one ejection — 15 years, that’s pretty good.”Waiters scored 21 and Bam Adebayo had 19 for the Heat, who had won three in a row. Goran Dragic finished with just seven points — 12 below his team-leading scoring average.The Heat closed to 93-76 early in the fourth, but Wade scored six straight points and fed Kyle Korver for a 3-pointer to give Cleveland a 102-79 lead.“Felt that I needed to do something to help this team keep our lead,” Wade said. “Just got in an aggressive mindset, got a couple shots to fall and had a nice assist to Kyle for a long three-ball.”TIP-INSSports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
Liberian Ebola victim, Thomas Eric Duncan’s ill-fated medical treatment by the Texas Presbyterian Hospital has paved the way for the establishment of a foundation in his memory and a future expansion of a history arm in Liberia to help Ebola victims. This followed a financial settlement by the hospital with the family of the man who became known as Patient Zero, being the first Ebola victim to die on United States soil.The foundation, according to family attorney Les Weisbrod, will assist other Ebola victims in West Africa. Attorney Les Weisbrod told the press conference that resources for the foundation are part of a larger settlement from Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital that would ‘take care’ of Duncan’s four children and his parents.The attorney, however, did not reveal how much the settlement was worth, but other sources placed the amount at U$25,000.00. But Duncan’s fiancée, Louise Troh, according to the attorney, would not receive any benefit from the settlement. He told reporters that the hospital wanted to do the right thing, but did not disclose details of the deal.He noted that Duncan’s family would not be billed for his care at the hospital. Duncan’s nephew, Josephus Weeks, who previously was critical of the care Duncan received, and who said his death had been partly due to his race, nationality and lack of insurance, Wednesday credited the Presbyterian officials for moving quickly to settle the case and accepting mistakes. Information reaching the Daily Observer quoted Weeks as saying that he would be “the face of the foundation”, which he hoped would lead to a new hospital or the dedication of a hospital wing in Liberia. “The main focus is that Eric’s name is on something, so that everybody knows that he didn’t die in vain,” reporters quoted him as saying.The hospital officials in Dallas confirmed the creation of the foundation in a statement and said it has ‘amicably addressed all matters’ with his family. With apologies to Duncan’s family, hospital officials acknowledged that key caregivers missed his travel history in their record system and instead provided him with antibiotics, something hospital administrators have acknowledged was a mistake. Duncan’s sister, Mai Wureh, told reporters that the hospital had satisfied her request for the remainder of her brother’s medical records, including lab results of his treatment with the experimental drug brincidofovir. Wureh also said she and Weeks met Wednesday morning with John Mulligan, the nurse who administered the drug. “He gave me closure because he was the last one in that room. He was able to talk to him, comfort him. He held onto him, and that made me feel better. At least he didn’t die alone,” Wureh said of Mulligan. Eric Thomas Duncan, 42, arrived in the United States, and first sought treatment at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in late September, telling staff he had come from Liberia, one of the three countries hit hardest by the Ebola outbreak. Duncan died on October 8.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Credible information gathered from the National Police Headquarters on Capitol Hill says the hierarchy of the police last Thursday held an hour-long discussion with Abigail Hinneh, the woman who claims to have been with Attorney Michael Allison prior to his mysterious drowning.The source described the meeting as the “first time” for Ms. Hinneh to be invited by top officials of the LNP.It is not clear what caused the leadership of the police to meet with Hinneh, whom police claimed was not a suspect.But, according to a police source, Hinneh appeared before the police leadership without being represented by a legal team.The source further explained that when she first appeared before the police’s “Crime against Persons Unit,” she went along with an unidentified lawyer.A source from Ms. Hinneh’s legal team confirmed the invitation and added that it was the first time she was invited by the hierarchy of the LNP, making specific reference to the head of the Criminal Investigation Division (CID).“She was invited by the LNP authorities, but before I could get there, she had left. I know that she went there as part of her daily routine of the investigation,” a source from her defense team said, adding, “but, the different thing was that she met with the CID boss, instead of the Crime against Persons unit.”Interestingly, when Ms. Hinneh first appeared before the Crime Against Persons Unit to give account of the death of Atty. Allison, she was quoted as saying, “after few minutes, she saw her boyfriend (Cllr. Allison) drowning, and she cried out for help and the security next door came to her aid and called a Brazilian national with a speed boat to get the victim out of the water, which he did, but Allison did not survive.”The late Cllr. Allison was the one who reportedly blew the whistle that has led to an ongoing corruption investigation by the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) involving Speaker J. Alex Tyler of the House of Representatives, and Montserrado County Representative Adolph Lawrence.Allison was found dead on a beach in Sinkor on the outskirts of Monrovia during the morning hours of Friday, February 13.An autopsy has reportedly been conducted by a Sierra Leonean Pathologist, Dr. Simeon Owizz Koroma, and findings submitted to the Ministry of Justice have to date not been made public.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
President David Granger has made a promise that dismissed sugar workers will receive the balance of their severance payment when Parliament resumes in the new week. The Head of State made the announcement on Friday as he addressed supporters of the A Partnership for National Unity who gathered for a meeting at Rose Hall, Corentyne, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne).Prior to taking the podium, the President was greeted by angry protesters who reminded the Head of State of the suffering Berbicians have been experiencing under his Administration, but more so, since the closure of two sugar estates in the region.The protesters chanted slogans highlighting the incompetence of the Government. People’s Progressive Party regional representative, Zamal Hussain, told the media that the Party supporters came out to remind the President that Berbicians are suffering.He said even if the Ministers of Government are not pulling their weight, as Head of State he has an obligation to the people of the region.”He is here for a political activity which is to campaign for the Local Government Elections (LGE) and as such we find it fit that we protest against certain issues; for instance we want to remind him that crime is on the upsurge in Region Six.”Hussain said they wanted to send a strong reminder to the President that the region depended heavily on sugar, and with the closure of two of the three sugar estates, all other sectors have been affected.“The economic situation across the entire country is coming to a halt now,” Hussain said. “As residents of Region Six, we are not allowing the President to come here with his election gimmick again and to tell people to vote for his party; the one which has destroyed this country.”However, President Granger during his address, said his Government continues to promote democracy, hence the hosting of the LGE.Granger was very critical of the way the previous Administration handled the sugar industry.“The sugar industry was operating on subsidies; they were producing sugar at a higher cost than they were selling it for… we have not closed sugar, we want to have an efficient industry; one which will make money and be profitable. So we will have one Estate in East Berbice, one in West Berbice and one East Demerara,” the Heads of State noted.It was at this point he said the workers were going to be paid.“At the beginning of the year, we said severance pay will be paid in two parts; one part in the first half of the year and the second part in the second half of the year. Next week we will go to the National Assemble to pass supplementary provisions for payment in the second half. Sugar workers are going to get their severance pay.”Addressing the issue of LGE, Granger said Rose Hall could become one of the industrial hubs of the region.“You have a powerful agricultural region and you have a powerful town which could guide the commercial activity of this region.” The President noted that at the last LGE, residents of the town did not give their full support to APNU.“That did not stop my Government from withholding anything from Rose Hall. We are a Government for all the people of Guyana.”He told residents that when they go to the polls on November 12, they should vote for the person they believe will best be able to serve the community on the council.“Regardless of which party they represent, you choose the person who will represent you the best,” he said. The meeting was also used to introduce the APNU constituency candidates for Rose Hall.
At a time when the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) is in the process of preparing its Official List of Electors (OLE) for the March 2, 2020 General and Regional Elections, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has stressed the need for there to be international oversight so as to ensure credibility in the process.Opposition Leader Bharrat JagdeoSpeaking at his weekly press conference on Thursday, Jagdeo lamented the delays by GECOM in accepting international oversight assistance from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).GECOM had indicated previously that it was in need of technical support particularly as it related to Information Technology (IT) . As such, the Commission had requested assistance from the UNDP last year in preparation for the November 2018 Local Government Elections (LGE) and the 2020 General Elections.A Needs Assessment Mission (NAM) was subsequently deployed in May last year to evaluate the current electoral environment in Guyana, and assess the form of future UN electoral assistance while also recommending the type of assistance that should be provided and the parameters, including the length of assistance, and modalities that would govern such assistance.GECOM Chair, Retired Justice Claudette SinghAmong the recommendations of the NAM, which was presented shortly after the visit, was for the UN to provide technical assistance to GECOM in a clear framework. It had recommended too that priority areas of assistance should include database management, systems design, and software development to improve the integrity of GECOM’s database, including voter registration and a solid results transmission system.GECOM had started talks with the UNDP; however, it was subsequently reported that there were a breakdown in those discussions.Deliberate blockingIn fact, Jagdeo had accused Chief Elections Officer (CEO) Keith Lowenfield of deliberately blocking the UNDP’s assistance.At Thursday’s press conference, the Opposition Leader reiterated that the assistance offered by the UNDP has been distorted at the level of the Commission. He pointed out that GECOM has refused the urgently-needed IT assistance from the UNDP, but accepted help in the form of media monitoring.Sense of urgency“We believe the offer from UNDP was distorted when it went to the Commission to create the impression that the offer of the IT assistance, that oversight or collaboration in IT, that that offer was no longer available and that there was an offer for media monitoring,” he noted.It was against this backdrop, Jagdeo said, that the People’s Progressive Party (PPP)-nominated Commissioners at GECOM required a report directly from the UNDP to seek clarity on the assistance offered. This report was supposed to be discussed by the seven-member Commission at Tuesday’s statutory meeting and make a decision, but according to the Opposition Leader, this was not done.“There should be a sense of urgency to get people here now particularly in the IT section, because that’s where the preliminary list and all the other lists are being generated and, therefore, you need oversight now and in this period. I suspect they’re trying to delay oversight until the OLE is created, which could have flaws. But even then, we will ask for an international testing of the list. You can do random testing to see that none of the data from the unverified [House-to-House] data would’ve contaminated the list,” Jagdeo stated.Moreover, he went on to question the delays in making a decision on a matter that was crucial to the quality of the elections. He noted that this was a simple decision to make, but there seemed to be a reluctance on the part of the GECOM Chair, Retired Justice Claudette Singh to accept oversight assistance from the UNDP.“At the end of the day, she is overall in charge [of GECOM] and I thought by now, she would want to have second opinions, more people looking out to see if everything is done properly if they want free and fair elections. So, critical going forward is oversight over IT too and the early acceptance and installation of international oversight mechanism. Why we have had these delays on simple decisions so far, I can’t explain. It defies logic that if you want free and fair elections and you want them to be helpful in the discharge of your duties, you should embrace all international support readily,” the Opposition Leader contended.AssistanceNevertheless, Jagdeo said on Thursday they were happy about the recent approvals for assistance from the Commonwealth and the Canadian Government. Last week, it was revealed that retired Chief Electoral Officer of Canada’s elections body, Jean-Pierre Kingsley, will be offering technical assistance to the Elections Commission here.Additionally, Government-nominated Commissioner Charles Corbin told reporters earlier this week that GECOM would be receiving help from the European Union (EU), which would be fielding an observer team for next year’s elections. Moreover, he noted too that the Commission was also in talks with Canada and the United States as well.“The Commission is open to receiving any assistance that corresponds with the need that they have,” Corbin stated, adding that “most of the major countries— Canada, US, EU – that have engaged with the Commission have made their services available to provide any support that they need. We’ve already had interventions through diplomatic channels to facilitate some of the work we’re doing to aid our operations and that will continue.”After President David Granger announced the March 2 elections date last month, a joint statement from British High Commissioner Gregory Quinn, United States Ambassador Sarah Ann-Lynch and Head of the EU Delegation to Guyana, Fernando Ponz Cantol reiterated willingness to offer electoral assistance. Stressing the need for free and fair elections, the diplomats stated that this support would take the form of “elections assistance and monitoring along with other colleagues in the international community”.
TEHRAN, Iran – Iran has drawn up plans to bomb Israel if the Jewish state should attack, the deputy air force commander said Wednesday, adding to tensions already heated up by an Israeli airstrike on Syria and Western calls for more U.N. sanctions against Tehran. Other Iranian officials also underlined their country’s readiness to fight if the U.S. or Israel attacks, a reflection of concerns in Tehran that demands by the U.S. and its allies for Iran to curtail its nuclear program could escalate into military action. French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said Sunday that the international community should prepare for the possibility of war in the event Iran obtains atomic weapons, although he later stressed the focus is still on diplomatic pressures. The comments come as the top U.S. military commander in the Middle East, Adm. William Fallon, is touring Persian Gulf countries seeking to form a united front of Arab allies against Iran’s growing influence in the region. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Iran has periodically raised alarms over the possibility of war, particularly when the West brings up talk of sanctions over Tehran’s rejection of a U.N. Security Council demand that it halt uranium enrichment. “We have drawn up a plan to strike back at Israel with our bombers if this regime (Israel) makes a silly mistake,” Iran’s deputy air force commander, Gen. Mohammad Alavi, said in an interview with the semiofficial Fars news agency. Alavi warned that Israel is within range of Iran’s medium-range missiles and fighter-bombers.
