first_img“Oh, he’s gonna go,” Smith said of his celebrated teammate. “He’s gonna go, trust me that. I don’t care what he’s gotta do, he’s gonna play.”While Smith may be giving James the green light, Lue and other team officials remained unsure of James’ status for the game against the Celtics and former Cavs guard Kyrie Irving, whose ballyhooed return to Cleveland is expected to be part homecoming, part hate-fest.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smogJames didn’t speak to reporters following Monday’s practice, but the three-time champion was in a playful mood while engaging in a competitive outside shooting contest with teammates Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder and Jeff Green.James has been slowed by a sprained left ankle suffered in practice on Sept. 27. He played in only one of Cleveland’s five exhibition games, and his absence has kept a starting lineup that now includes Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose from getting much floor time together. Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales? MOST READ Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny The 32-year-old James hasn’t missed an opener in his previous 14 seasons, and it would be hard to imagine sitting this one out given the attention with Irving coming back following this summer’s blockbuster trade between the teams — and the All-Star guard’s recent swipe at Cleveland.Just so he’s protected, Lue has made a contingency lineup in case James doesn’t play. Smith will take his spot in the Cavs’ “B” lineup.Lue has said for days that he doesn’t know for sure if James will be ready.“You know I never hide stuff from you guys,” Lue said when pressed about his superstar’s availability. “I really don’t know, I mean, just depends on how he feels after today. … I’m preparing that he is (playing).”Smith, who is beginning his third full season with Cleveland, knows it will take a lot more than a sore ankle to keep James off the floor.“Just because he loves the game,” he said. “We were talking about it, he’s never missed, since he was 8 years old and he started playing, he’s never missed a first game. I’m preparing for him to play.”ADVERTISEMENT Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next The Cavaliers have struggled mightily when James has been out of the lineup, losing 11 straight regular-season games and going 4-23 without him since 2014.With a revamped roster and more offensive options than ever, Lue believes the Cavs are more equipped to compete when James is on the bench.“We’ll be a lot better off,” he said. “I think we got a lot of different pieces. We’re deeper. A lot of versatile players. A lot of different lineups we can play. So, it will be different but I think we have a better chance.”Irving spent six seasons with Cleveland but left on shaky terms.His demand to be traded this summer rankled some Cavaliers fans, and he created a larger divide last week when he described Boston as a “real, live sports city.”That didn’t sit well with many Cleveland residents, and he’s certain to get an earful Tuesday night.The Cavaliers plan to honor Irving, who made the biggest shot in franchise history, with a video tribute at some point during the game. Irving’s 3-pointer in the waning moments of Game 7 in 2016 lifted Cleveland to the city’s first championship since 1964.Lue wasn’t sure what else Irving should expect from the fired-up, sellout crowd.“We’ve got the best fans in the world and they’re going to do whatever they see best,” he said. “Whatever decision they make, that’s the right one. Because they’ve been behind us for three straight years, since I’ve been here, they’ve always made the right decisions. So whatever they decide to do, I embrace whatever they do.” View comments LATEST STORIEScenter_img Gins can’t relax–Cone Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James answers questions during the NBA basketball team media day, Monday, Sept. 25, 2017, in Independence, Ohio.

first_img‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins View comments Roger Federer, of Switzerland, returns a shot to Nick Kyrgios, of Australia, during the third round of the U.S. Open tennis tournament, Saturday, Sept. 1, 2018, in New York. (AP Photo/Jason DeCrow)NEW YORK — The most pivotal part of Roger Federer’s U.S. Open victory over Nick Kyrgios, both men agreed, came all of 17 minutes in, when the 20-time major champion was serving at 3-all, love-40 and got out of the jam.The most spectacular part? That came, anyone who saw it surely would agree, much later. It was the on-a-full-sprint, drop-shot-retrieving, flick-from-a-few-inches-off-the-ground, forehand-around-the-net-post, jaw-dropping winner that Federer conjured up a few games from the conclusion of the 6-4, 6-1, 7-5 tour de force in the third round Saturday.ADVERTISEMENT Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines? Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Djokovic could meet Federer in the quarterfinals.First, though, both get what shape up as mismatches in the fourth round: Federer plays 55th-ranked John Millman, and Djokovic faces 68th-ranked Sousa. Neither Millman nor Sousa has ever made it this deep at any Grand Slam tournament.“Look, I know that I’m the clear favorite in the match,” Djokovic said. “At the same time I will try to maintain the level of focus and performance and level of tennis that I’ve had today.”Federer knows Millman well, because they practiced with each other ahead of the grass-court portion of this season.The outcome of Federer vs. Kyrgios might very well have been decided in the very early going, long before Federer’s “How did he do that?!” trick shot in the third set.In the match’s seventh game, Federer faced a total of four break points. On the first three, Kyrgios missed a shot. On the fourth, Federer snapped off a forehand winner. The game then continued through five additional deuces and Federer held. Turned out Kyrgios would not muster another break chance.“He loosened up straightaway after that. He started playing some shots that we all know he can make. All the pressure was off him. He’s an unbelievable front-runner,” Kyrgios said. “When he gets in front, there’s not much you can do.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Are……You…………Serious?@rogerfederer delivers the shot of the tournament!Sit back and enjoy…#USOpen pic.twitter.com/6GEdG2CcpWFEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’— US Open Tennis (@usopen) September 1, 2018 3️⃣: 2010 🆚 Dabul…4️⃣: 2014 🆚 Groth…5️⃣: 2018 🆚 Kyrgios…Which was your favorite, @rogerfederer??? 😉#USOpen pic.twitter.com/E9FFCEPPQt— US Open Tennis (@usopen) September 2, 2018There’s no rule mandating that the ball travel over the net for a shot to count, but Federer pointed out that this was not the sort of thing he can try in practice, mainly because there isn’t as much room to run wide of the court as in a big arena like Arthur Ashe Stadium, so “you will be running into a fence.”Much was made of Kyrgios’ previous match, in which chair umpire Mohamed Lahyani climbed out of his seat to have a chat with the 23-year-old player about whether he was giving his best effort while trailing by a set and a break. Kyrgios went on to win; Lahyani was chastised by the U.S. Tennis Association for breaching “protocol” but allowed to continue officiating at the tournament.This time, of course, Kyrgios received no sort of counsel during the match other than all the muttering, at various volumes, he directed at himself. He doesn’t have a coach and wondered aloud, during the latest in a long line of news conferences that sound more like therapy sessions, whether he should add one — or perhaps someone who could help with the mental aspect of the game.Federer alluded to one particularly questionable choice Kyrgios made at 5-all, 40-15 in the final set, when he went for a drop shot that found the net instead of simply hitting a normal forehand into the open court.

But that’s just how he plays.”Clearly.The contrast between Kyrgios’ mindset and Federer’s was not lost on the talented, if temperamental, Australian.“We’re two very different characters. Just the way he goes about things, I could take a leaf out of his book. The way he behaves on court. His demeanor,” the 30th-seeded Kyrgios said. “I don’t want to change myself too much, but I could definitely take away things he does in certain situations. He’s the ultimate role model to anyone who wants to play.”The No. 2-seeded Federer moved into the fourth round at Flushing Meadows for the 17th consecutive appearance. He’s won five titles at the U.S Open, although the last arrived a decade ago.While he keeps on keeping on, there are all sorts of seeds tumbling from both singles draws.It’s most pronounced in the women’s field, where 10 of the top 13 seeds already are gone as Week 1 comes to an end. No. 4 Angelique Kerber and No. 5 Petra Kvitova — owners of a combined five Grand Slam titles — exited Saturday, both at Louis Armstrong Stadium, the same new arena where No. 1 Simona Halep and No. 2 Caroline Wozniacki were beaten earlier in the tournament.Over in Ashe at night, five-time major champion Maria Sharapova eliminated No. 10 Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 6-2. No. 6 Caroline Garcia and No. 13 Kiki Bertens also lost, while 2017 runner-up Madison Keys came back to beat Aleksandra Krunic 4-6, 6-1, 6-2.Two seeded men lost in the afternoon to unseeded opponents: No. 4 Alexander Zverev and No. 17 Lucas Pouille. Zverev still has never made the fourth round in visits to New York after being beaten 6-7 (1), 6-4, 6-1, 6-3 by Philipp Kohlschreiber in an all-German matchup, while Joao Sousa defeated Pouille 7-6 (5), 4-6, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (5). Kohlschreiber now meets 2014 runner-up Kei Nishikori, who got past No. 13 Diego Schwartzman 6-4, 6-4, 5-7, 6-1.At night, 13-time major champion Novak Djokovic easily beat No. 26 Richard Gasquet 6-2, 6-3, 6-3 in Ashe, while 2014 U.S. Open title winner Marin Cilic met 19-year-old Alex de Minaur in Armstrong in the day’s last match.

first_imgAccording to the Women’s NGO Secretariat of Liberia (WONGOSOL) statistics from the presidential and general elections in 2011 —with the exception of general statistics produced by the National Election Commission and other organizations— showed that women’s participation was not fully recorded. WONGOSOL’s focus during the upcoming senatorial elections will be to increase participation and awareness among women. Their aim is to ensure that female voters are more informed about their candidates, their rights and the electoral processes.In order to attain the project objective, WONGOSOL will implement several activities ranging from tool development of specific indicators to monitor women’s participation throughout the electoral process, to holding consultative meetings on project awareness. They will also conduct leadership training for female leaders and conduct community outreach programs, regional forums, while taking part in monitoring and observation on Election Day. There are plans to produce a documentary on women’s participation in the process as well.These projects which will be sponsored by IREX and are to be implemented in seven project counties including Grand Bassa, Bong, Nimba, Lofa, Grand Gedeh, Montserrado and River Gee.The project is expected to be implemented within the period of 8 months.The disclosure was made yesterday when the organization in collaboration with IREX and its partners held a one day workshop with women organizations across Liberia.The workshop under the women’s political participation awareness was held in the conference hall of the Young Women Christian Association (YWCA) and brought together 28 participants.In an interview with this paper, Rosanna Schaack, a participant from Touching Humanity In Need of Kindness (THINK) Inc., said the workshop is important since it will give participants the basic skills necessary to increase participation amongst women in the electoral processes.“Some of the issues that were responsible for the low participation of women last election were the lack of financial support and degrading behavior from other people.We are encouraging women to acquire more knowledge so they can track down information in regards to issues affecting women.We are hoping after this leadership workshop, the whole idea of women’s leadership will not go down the drain. That is why we are constantly pushing for their participation in as many activities as possible,” she said.Also speaking was Josiah F. Joekai, Jr., Director for Civic and Voter Education at the National Election Commission. Mr. Joekai said the step taken by WONGOSOL and IREX is important because it helps prepare women for elections.“With this platform they should come to understand their role in Liberia’s democracy. They should become aware that we all have a responsibility to transform the country. The results from this year’s voter roll update, taken from 100% registered voters, shows women represent 37%, while men comprises of 63% of the total number. This shows that women are moving forward and taking responsibility,” Mr. Joekai concluded.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

We think that’s worth celebrating! Of course, we are marking the occasion with a new souvenir. Heck, there will even be two souvenirs. But to adequately underscore the gravity of this day (seriously, people wait four years to have birthday cake), we’re upping the celebration. For this one special weekend only, all geocache types in the Geocaching Intro app (including all terrain and difficulty ratings) — usually available only to Premium members — will be available to everyone for free.Pretty exciting, right? We think so. To make the most of this once-in-four-years opportunity, we recommend you use the app to:Find an EarthCache — You can send your answers to the cache owner directly from the app.Challenge your mind — Try out a Mystery Cache or higher difficulty geocache. (Hint: If you’re stumped, message the cache owner for hints.)Explore the outdoors — Hike to extraordinary vistas by finding a higher terrain rated geocache.Go streaking — The geocaching kind, of course. Explore different elements of the game by finding a variety of geocaches.Download the app for iPhone or Android.How can I earn the Leap Day souvenirs?The first souvenir can be earned February 27-29 by getting outside and finding any geocache (events excluded). The other souvenir can be earned on Leap Day itself — February 29 — only by attending a geocaching event. How do I see all advanced geocaches for free?Just open up the Geocaching Intro app for iPhone or Android during February 27-29! Advanced geocaches — usually available only to Premium members — will be unlocked for everyone. By logging a geocache, you’ll even earn the Leap Day weekend souvenir!Will I be able to find Premium Member Only geocaches?When a cache owner hides a geocache, they can opt to have their geocache only available to Premium members.

All other geocaches — including all geocache types, and terrain and difficulty ratings —  will be available to basic members to find and log in the app.What is a souvenir? Souvenirs are digital awards you can earn by completing a specific geocaching achievement, like finding a geocache in a new country or finding a geocache on Leap Day. You can view the souvenirs you’ve earned on Geocaching.com and learn more about souvenirs in the Geocaching Help Center.Not seeing unlocked geocaches in the Geocaching Intro app?You should see advanced geocaches automatically unlocked for you in the Geocaching Intro app during February 27-29.

It’s definitely great to have him, a vet that’s been through it.”Gasol went 6-of-10 from the floor, 2-of-4 from 3-point range when the Warriors “gave him a couple of dare shots and he knocked them down” in Golden State coach Steve Kerr’s words.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logistics“He turned himself into a very good 3-point shooter,” Warriors guard Klay Thompson said. “Great passer.

People were basically writing him off.“I did talk to him about it. He just didn’t waver at all. ‘Tomorrow, it’s going to be great,’ was his answer. I told him several times: ‘You’re a great player because you’ve lifted the level of who our team thinks they can be and you lift the level of other players’ play.’ That’s, to me, what great players do.”Fast tempo is Toronto’s strength but Gasol’s defensive work gives others freedom to attack.“He has been great,” Raptors star Kawhi Leonard said. “He’s a good rim protector. He has been guarding everybody. Another smart player on the floor that has been through the ups and downs of the NBA. Veteran guy who is just ready for the moment.”And his mellow attitude fits well on a selfless squad.“He’s a true professional,” Raptors guard Kyle Lowry said. “Goes about his business. He blends in well. He’s just an easygoing guy.”Relentless mindsetInstead of slowing the Raptors, Gasol is a 7-footer who can launch fast breaks with his defensive work.“You run at them and be aggressive,” Gasol said. “To be able to run, you have to get stops. And to get stops, you have to communicate, be physical, do all the little things. Being physical starts with pressuring the ball. You have to do it all the time. You can’t relax.”It’s that relentless attitude Gasol sees as vital to a championship run.“It’s about the mindset and trusting the guy next to you,” Gasol said. “You cannot overreact. You have to cover a lot of ground, do a lot of talking, lot of running. Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

You got to stay poised during the whole game so your brain can’t go anywhere else but every possession.”So Raptors coach Nick Nurse spoke of how Gasol handled tough times, praising his “strong ability” to bounce back.ADVERTISEMENT “It’s how you stay in the moment and continue to play the next possession.
