Sherwood glad to have Townsend back

first_img Press Association Having enjoyed an incredible start to the campaign, the flying winger has been left twiddling his thumbs on the sidelines since picking up a hamstring injury against West Ham on December 18. The problem has seen Townsend miss Tottenham’s last nine matches – a run that looks unlikely to reach double figures. The 22-year-old returned to full training this week and has been given the green light to play against Everton on Sunday. “He’s in the squad so we’re hoping that he’ll be in and around selection,” Sherwood said. “He’s done enough training now for us to be confident that he can be dropped back into the squad. He’s looked magnificent. “The results don’t suggest that he has (been missed), but I think whenever you’ve got a player like Andros, he can change a game in an instant. “It’s great to have him back and we’re pleased to welcome him back to the squad. But the rest of the team has done very well over the recent period.” Townsend’s return is a welcome boost for Spurs, who will be without Erik Lamela, Vlad Chiriches and Sandro through injury on Sunday. Another back in contention is Mousa Dembele after missing the trip to Hull with an ankle injury. The Belgium midfielder said the clash with Everton was one of their biggest matches of the season – sentiments Sherwood found hard to disagree with given victory would see Spurs usurp Everton in fifth. Andros Townsend will return for Tottenham after a seven-week absence against Everton – a match which head coach Tim Sherwood knows will be “crucial” to their top-four ambitions. “It’s important because it’s the next one and it’s a team who are in and around us,” he said. “I think possibly the team who finishes fourth will be the one who takes the most points off the teams in and around them, and that includes Everton. “It’s very, very important and I’m glad that the players think it’s as important as I do because they’ll be reminded that it is a crucial game and it could be a springboard for us to go on a nice run again.” Tottenham could certainly do with a boost after the embarrassing 5-1 home defeat to Manchester City was followed up by a 1-1 draw at Hull. Furthermore, the encounter with Everton at White Hart Lane is swiftly followed on Wednesday evening by a trip to eighth-placed Newcastle. While Alan Pardew’s side have impressed this campaign, many expect them to fall away as the season comes to an end – but not Sherwood. “I think they’ll be in the battle for fourth,” the head coach said. “If they get a favourable result this weekend, we’re playing them in midweek, if they were to beat us then they’re still in it. “It’s open for any team to put a run together. There are teams up and around that spot who can put a nice run together and elevate themselves up there. “I think the top three are away and are possibly away too far for anyone to catch.” last_img read more

Warriors look to eliminate Rockets without Kevin Durant

first_imgDA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anew Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry, right, drives the ball against Houston Rockets’ James Harden during the second half of Game 5 of a second-round NBA basketball playoff series Wednesday, May 8, 2019, in Oakland, Calif. (AP Photo/Ben Margot)HOUSTON  — In the Western Conference finals last season, the Houston Rockets had home-court advantage and took a 3-2 lead over the Golden State Warriors before Houston star Chris Paul went down with a hamstring injury that kept him out for the rest of the series.As these teams prepare for Game 6 of the conference semifinals Friday night, the Warriors find themselves in almost the same situation Houston was in last year.ADVERTISEMENT The Rockets are 5-0 at home this postseason and went 31-10 at the Toyota Center in the regular season.As the Warriors look to move on without Durant and the more than 34 points a game he’s averaged this postseason, they know no one player can make up for his absence in this series where each game has been close.“The series has been a battle,” Klay Thompson said. “Each game, such little margin for error. We know we’re going to have to be near perfect to go down to the Houston without Kevin and win a game. It’s going to be hard.”The Warriors will need Thompson to build on what he did in Game 5 after he shook off a couple of tough games to make 5 of 10 3-pointers and lead the team with 27 points.“I’m never going to waver with my confidence when it comes to shooting … but it’s the playoffs,” he said. “There are going to be plenty of ups and downs. We’ve done this so many times. We’re not going to lose confidence over a couple bad shooting nights. That’s the way the basketball gods can be. Last week just wasn’t my best games. Hopefully I can rebound with a great one on Friday.”ADVERTISEMENT UST pride: Cherry Rondina is UAAP Season 81 MVP, Eya Laure is Rookie of Year MOST READ PRESSURE IS ON: Paul. The Rockets need Paul to step up after the nine-time All-Star struggled in Game 5. Paul managed a playoff-low 11 points on 3 of 14 shooting and went 0 for 6 on 3-pointers. He said Houston can’t worry about its missed opportunity on Wednesday night and must look forward.“We just got to be better,” he said. “We got to rebound. Let this one go … it’s over and done with. We can’t get it back. We got to go back home and take care of Game 6.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess If the Rockets hope to force the series back to Oakland for Game 7 on Sunday night, reigning MVP James Harden will have to be more aggressive after scoring just five points in the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s loss.But Harden believes good defense will be the key to keeping this series going.“Defensively is how you win the series,” he said. “It’s plain and simple. You can’t … nitpick, overanalyze the game. You got to get stops in order to put yourself in a position to win. It’s pretty simple.”Some things to know about Game 6 on Friday night.WARRIORS AT ROCKETSGolden State leads 3-2. Game 6, 9 p.m. EDT, ESPN.PRESSURE IS ON: Curry’s Shot. Stephen Curry is still trying to find a shooting rhythm and it hasn’t been fun for the two-time MVP. Not that he’s lost any confidence in letting it fly — from anywhere. Without Durant, his scoring contributions become even more important. Curry had another rough shooting night in Game 5, going 9 for 23 and 3 of 11 on 3s to still finish with 25 points.“I thought I was aggressive the whole game. I just missed shots,” he said. “Again, that’s going to happen. Right before KD got hurt I missed a layup right at the rim, a wide-open three in transition. That was, like, the lowest point of the game for me in terms of just searching. But when he went out, got the ball in your hands, initiate the offense, shots went in. Again, it’s all about not losing confidence in yourself, just find a way to find any type of life on the offensive end.”INJURY WATCH: Durant didn’t make the trip to Houston, remaining in the Bay Area to receive treatment for his injury. The Warriors said he’ll be re-evaluated next week.KEEP AN EYE ON: Rebounds. Through the first five games, the team which has led in rebounds has won the game. Offensive rebounds have been particularly important with P.J. Tucker’s work in that area in Games 3 and 4 helping Houston close out both games. Tucker has had at least 10 rebounds in the last four games. The Warriors are just a win away from advancing to the conference finals for the fifth straight time, but will have to do it without NBA-playoffs leading scorer Kevin Durant, who will miss the rest of the series with a strained right calf.The two-time defending champions took advantage of Paul’s injury in 2018 to win two straight after falling behind 3-2 and eliminated the Rockets on their home court to advance.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, logisticsThe Rockets don’t want to see Golden State celebrate a series victory on their home court again and are determined to bounce back after Wednesday night’s loss to avoid being eliminated by the Warriors for the fourth time in five seasons.“I am a competitor and this team is competitive, we have to go down and win,” Houston’s Eric Gordon said. “We know the situation and we have to go back home and win and that is going to be our mentality. We’ve always done well at home and we just have to keep it that way.” View comments PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games PLAY LIST 02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss Ethel Booba twits Mocha over 2 toilets in one cubicle at SEA Games venue Hontiveros presses for security audit of national power grid Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Philippine Arena Interchange inaugurated LATEST STORIES Panelo: Duterte ‘angry’ with SEA Games hosting hassles Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

BAHAMAS Hundreds of Job Seekers Register at Labour on the Blocks Job

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, February 25, 2018 – Grand Bahama – Minister of Labour, Senator the Hon. Dion Foulkes, on Saturday said he was pleased with the Labour on the Blocks Job Fair: over 1,000 people turned up hoping to find employment or better opportunities.The job fair, said the Minister, was very important as the Labour Department in Freeport receives a number of requests for Labour Certificates.  These, he said, are known as NOVs or Notice of Vacancies and in order for a company to get a work permit, they must demonstrate that there are no Bahamians available to fill the position.While there are a number of work permits being sought for Freeport, the Minister said those companies were invited to participate in the job fair and interview residents.  He said, “I know for sure there are at least five companies here, who are actively seeking to fill vacancies in their organizations now, not in a week or two weeks.”Stating that a number of the major companies on island were present, Minister Foulkes added that Baha Mar is hiring as they are about to open Rosewood soon and they will be hiring about 1,000 people.“The most important thing in this exercise, is all of the job seekers in Grand Bahama who are here, and I’m getting different estimates from 1,000 to 1,500, they will be registered in our data base.”   Whenever the Ginn Project begins to recruit and that’s going to be hundreds of people; the start of Oban Energies in East Grand Bahama and the reopening of the hotels on the Lucayan Strip, those individuals will be in the database, registered.“All of the job seekers who came here today will be ahead of the game.”He said that there were people willing to work, and it was evident by the numbers standing in line for hours.  During the job fair, there were a few companies prepared to hire if suitable applicants were found.Companies represented on Saturday included University of The Bahamas, Freeport Container Port, Grand Bahama Shipyard, the Airport Company, National Workers Credit Union, Baha Mar, Rev/Aliv, Freeport Ship Services, Pelican Bay, Pineyard Technical Centre, Candid Security and Global Tech.By: Robyn AdderleyPhoto Captions:Header: Minister of Labour, Senator the Hon.

Senate Clears FY17 Milcon Spending Bill

first_imgThe Senate on Thursday passed a two-bill appropriations package that includes $7.9 billion for military construction and family housing programs in fiscal 2017, along with $1.1 billion in emergency funding to respond to the Zika virus.The milcon spending portion of the package, which also included the FY 2017 Transportation-Housing and Urban Development spending measure, closely matches the total funding level for military construction and family housing programs in the corresponding bill passed the same day by the House.The Senate measure represents a $241 million drop from current year funding for milcon programs, but a $486 million increase over DOD’s request. The bill would provide $205 million for past base closure rounds — including cleanup and ongoing operations and maintenance — matching the department’s request. The House version would allocate $230 million for the account next year. Congress allocated $266 million in the current year to clean up installations closed during past base closure rounds.Earlier last week, the White House threatened to veto the legislation over “problematic ideological provisions that are beyond the scope of funding legislation,” according to a statement from the Office of Management and Budget. The statement was critical of a provision blocking the president from closing the prison at Guantánamo Bay or using funding to build alternative locations within the United States to house detainees, reported the Hill.Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), a critic of Obama’s plan to close the facility in Cuba, praised those restrictions. “Although the clock may have run out on the president, I will continue to oppose his ongoing attempts to transfer the detainees at every opportunity,” Roberts said in a statement.

IAA says Yes We Can to power plants in orbit

first_img European space company wants solar power plant in space (PhysOrg.com) — Scientists from around the world have completed a study that says harvesting the sun’s energy in space can turn out to be a cost effective way of delivering the world’s needs for power in as little as 30 years. As important, the report says that orbiting power plants capable of collecting energy from the sun and beaming it to earth are technically feasible within a decade or so based on technologies now in the laboratory. More information: iaaweb.org/via The Globe and Mail These are findings in a report from the International Academy of Astronautics, headquartered in Paris. What their time references refer to are that the very technology needed to satisfy global energy requirements may be available in only 10 to 20 years, and the project can show cost-effectiveness in about 30 years. The IAA’s three-year, ten-nation study, as the first broadly based international assessment of collecting solar energy in space, is considered significant. The study was conducted from 2008 to 2010 and was under peer review. John Mankins, the former head of concepts at NASA, led the study. The concept centers on placing one, then several, then many, solar-powered satellites in orbit over the equator. Each would be several miles wide. The satellites would collect sunlight up to 24 hours a day The power would be converted to electricity in space, then sent to where it was needed on earth by a microwave-transmitting antenna or by lasers, and then fed into a power grid.Who would bear the cost of such an effort? The report recommends that both governments and the private sector should fund the research needed to further determine viability.A pilot project to demonstrate the technology could proceed using low-cost expendable launch vehicles being developed for other space markets, said Mankins, according to Reuters. A moderate-scale demonstration would cost tens of billions of dollars less than previously projected as a result of not needing costly, reusable launch vehicles early on. According to reports, reactions to the study strike a hopeful note that such a project will proceed. Jeff Peacock, who heads Boeing’s ground-based solar cell product line, said in theory it could double the amount of solar power collected, compared with the earth-bound technology equivalent. Col. Michael Smith, director of the Center for Strategy and Technology at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama, was quoted as saying that the idea has the potential to send safe, clean electrical energy worldwide “if we can make it work.”Advantages to space solar power compared to ground solar power are that it can occur without worry about adverse weather conditions and the costs of energy storage. Another thumbs-up reason given is that solar collection does not bring carbon pollution, addressing key concerns about a continuing reliance on fossil fuels that contribute to global pollution. Nevertheless, the Reuters report says skeptics point out hurdles such as space debris, a lack of focused market studies and development costs. © 2011 PhysOrg.com This document is subject to copyright.
