After his initial basket, the Kings answered with a 17-2 run.A video and highlight tribute to Cousins played on the scoreboard during a first-quarter timeout as he was formally welcomed back to the city where he played seven seasons, and the big man gave a big wave.“I loved it,” Cousins said. “I’ve got nothing but love for this city. I came here as a kid and left as a man. As I stated many times, I’ve got people here I consider family.

Cousins then carried the ball out of the crowd and set it down in front of the New Orleans bench before the jump ball.“This was just as big a game for them as it was for us,” Cousins said. “We knew they would be juiced. We knew they would come out swinging and that’s exactly what they did.”He had faced the Kings once already since his February trade, in New Orleans on March 31, and scored 37 points while making 12 of 21 shots in the Pelicans’ 117-89 victory.“For him, he came here as a young kid, really. He’d been with this franchise the entire time,” coach Alvin Gentry said. “You have friends in the city, you have things that you’ve done just from a community service point of view that you had. And then very emotional when he left here. I was there when he got on the plane. I think people don’t realize, they look at these guys as something other than a 22- 25- 27-year-old kid, and that’s what they are. I don’t care how big they are, they’ve got the same emotions as everyone else has.“It’s tough, because it wasn’t his decision to leave. I think when that happens, it stings, it hurts initially. I think he has found himself in a positon where we really appreciate everything he brings to the table.”WEBBER TRIBUTEFormer Kings star Chris Webber worked the nationally televised game for TNT and received his own video highlight recognition and a standing ovation late in the first quarter.

first_imgAn accident involving three cars on the Robertsfield highway Sunday, April 20, led to the death of 4 persons with others in critical condition.According to authorities at the Du-side Hospital in Harbel, Margibi County, where some of the victims were transferred to, the deadly accident involved three cars; 2 gray Nissans and a black Honda Accord driven by a man indentified as Moses S.

first_img…says illegal vending a major issueSome major issues have been identified at the Mackenzie Market in Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice), which, according to vendors and officials, require urgent attention. Issues such as the reported sinking of the Market’s wharf and several illegal activities were recently unearthed during consultations by members of the Linden Mayor and Town Council (LM&TC).Mayor Waneka Arrindell said the Council was working along with the Linden Fire Department, Police and Linden Electricity Company Inc (LECI) to ascertain what were some of the major issues affecting vendors.Mayor Waneka Arrindell engaging vendors at Linden“The wharf at this time is the most serious of it all, because it seems to be sinking at some point…,” the Mayor said.She added that there was no washroom facility there and that was one of the greater needs of persons working in that section of the Market.“(The) Fire (Department) issue is the accessibility to the place in and out, and if there is any issue as it relates to fire, there is no way they can take a vehicle in there. (There is also) the difficulty as it relates to changing those poles that are rotted in the area. And so, their issue is that the vendors would have encroached on the spaces that were created by the Market for easy access and they’re hoping that can be regularised,” she noted, as she explained other issues.“LECI issue is that we’re seeing some illegal connections. While there are general connections given, some persons, maybe in order to not be able to pay would have made some illegal connections in there. That is a hazard … those places have been identified and those persons would be targeted in order to make sure that they change that standard,” the Mayor related.Arrindell stated that the Police also wanted to ensure that the Market area was properly lit, noting that there may be some unhealthy practices which have been occurring. It was also noted that there was an excess of illegal vendors on the roadways in close proximity to the Market area. In this regard, Arrindell said the Council would have established that it was time for such vendors to remove from the main thoroughfares and ply their trade the legal way.“When we illegally vend, we deface the beauty of our community … we want to move towards an eco-tourist community and so what people see when they come in is what will pull them,” she stated.The Mayor further noted that the Council has met with the Central Housing and Planning Authority and the Lands and Surveys Commission in relation to illegal vending at Lover’s Lane, Amelia’s Ward and the two sides were in talks to have a suitable place identified to accommodate these vendors.Arrindell noted that the Council was unable to cover all the issues now or fulfil all the work needed; however, she said it was preparing a Strategic Plan on all issues identified, in an effort to decide how they would be tackled. Further, she said the Council would try to access funding from Government and/or organisations.“With the current financial situation of the municipality, we are unable to deal with these things. So, it would be our hope that the Government comes on board. While we are going to become sustainable, we would need the assistance of Government and finances of our national body to help us with these major projects, that gives us the initial overflow to help us to make the initial repairs needed and then we’re able to move into sustainability,” she said. At this point, Arrindell said she was hopeful that there was funding set aside in the National Budget that the Council can tap into.last_img read more

first_imgPPP/C Presidential Candidate, Dr Irfaan AliAs constitutional reform under the current coalition Government has hit a brick wall, the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) in its 2020 election manifesto has promised that if elected to office, it would advance constitutional reform with the input of the citizens themselves.In its manifesto, the Party noted the importance of ensuring that the people participate in something as critical as revising the supreme law. The Party referenced the constitutional reform it piloted in the late 90s-early 2000s as an example of the process that is needed.“We are aware that issues concerning constitutional reform, particularly in relation to a national, inclusive governance model, management of elections, fiduciary accountability, enhancing rights of Guyanese and ensuring constitutional language is simple have been raised and discussed in the public domain.“However, we believe that these, as well as other issues, must be part of a process of widespread consultation with the people of Guyana before being acted upon. The extensive changes to our Constitution under the PPP/C followed such a process. Moving forward, we are committed to continuous revision of the Constitution,” the Party noted.“In this regard, we will ensure that the Committee on Constitutional Reform that will advance the work will pursue nationwide consultation following the model used in the past, that is, with half of the members from civil society and equal representation from Government and the Opposition.Over the past few years, constitutional reform has been before a parliamentary committee. There is a Constitutional Reform Commission Bill that was to be examined by the Committee. The Bill was published on July 26, 2017, and was introduced in the National Assembly on July 27, 2017, and read for the first time. But there have been accusations made of members of the Committee stalling the process.Constitutional reform was one of the main promises that the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) coalition campaigned on for the 2015 Elections. However, the Administration has been heavily criticised for not delivering the reform, which was a top priority in its manifesto.The bipartisan Committee on Constitutional Reform was formed in 2015. The Committee comprises Chairman, Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister, Basil Williams; Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan; Education Minister Nicolette Henry, Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman and Public Service Minister, Dr Rupert Roopnaraine.Opposition Members of Parliament (MPs) on the Committee include Anil Nandlall, Priya Manickchand, Dr Frank Anthony and Adrian Anamayah. The Bill was sent to the Committee to be examined as it is the body responsible for dealing with constitutional matters.The Opposition had raised concerns about the Prime Minister leading the constitutional reform process as they had argued that the PM did not have the clout to negotiate or make any commitments to the Opposition. Meetings have been infrequent, with accusations being made that members are not attending when called to do so.last_img read more

first_imgThey also said developing more effective tools to identify videos that violate copyrights remains a priority, and not just because YouTube and Google face several copyright-infringement lawsuits that include a $1 billion claim by Viacom Inc. Developing better methods of detecting protected material will pave the way for YouTube to work with copyright holders to negotiate more revenue-sharing agreements that include its vast community of users, Hurley said. “We will be able to reduce the clutter of stuff that people don’t even watch on our site,” he said. “That will give us more opportunities to reward the people that are really creating great content for our system.” In its first step toward that goal, YouTube earlier this month said it was negotiating revenue-sharing agreements with contributors whose videos become big hits. Yet Hurley believes YouTube would thrive even if Hollywood studios and music labels had all of their material removed from the site. SAN FRANCISCO – The media’s recent legal and competitive challenges to Internet video pioneer YouTube haven’t fazed co-founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen, who have diligently sought to make money for new owner Google Inc., as well as the creators of the content that fuels their Web site’s whirlwind growth. “We have been a little bit silent, but we haven’t been sleeping,” Chen told The Associated Press during the duo’s first extensive interview since Google closed its $1.76 billion purchase of YouTube last November. The leaders of the online video revolution declined the AP’s request to videotape the interview. During an hourlong discussion, Hurley and Chen indicated that a long-awaited platform for showing video ads could be ready within the next couple of months, although Google’s recently announced $3.1 billion acquisition of online ad distributor DoubleClick Inc. could delay things. “What our users want to watch is themselves,” he said. “They don’t want to watch professionally produced content. There are so many people with cameras that have the opportunity to create their own content and so many more people with editing tools to tell their stories, we feel this is just the tip of the iceberg.” Because of its emphasis on grainy, homemade videos, YouTube isn’t worried about the efforts of NBC Universal and New Corp.’s plans to launch their own Internet video channel this summer. Nor are they concerned about another site, Joost, that has gained the backing of major media like Viacom and CBS. Those alternatives all seem interested in providing slick, lengthy videos akin to traditional television programming rather than invading YouTube’s niche of serving up two- to three-minute clips, Hurley said. “We have never been about full-length programming. We have never been about high-quality. We don’t really see ourselves building the largest audience by moving in that direction.” Hurley said YouTube now streams more than 200 million videos each day while adding more than 200,000 videos to its library. “YouTube is becoming much more than an entertainment destination,” Hurley said, citing the political, news and instructional videos that have poured into YouTube in recent months. “We want to entertain, inform and empower people with video around the world.” Toward that end, YouTube plans to create specialized Web addresses to serve countries outside the United States. Foreign viewers already watch about 70 percent of the videos streamed on YouTube, Hurley said. Hurley, now 30, and Chen, 28, never envisioned having such a huge impact on society a little more than two years ago when they began working in a Silicon Valley with another friend, Jawed Karim, to develop an easy way to share videos online. Karim left YouTube before it became a cultural phenomenon, leading to the Google deal that turned Hurley and Chen into very wealthy, high-tech celebrities. They both received Google stock now worth more than $325 million, but their lifestyles haven’t changed that much so far, they said. “Hopefully, we come across as accessible and humble,” Chen said. “I try to spend as much time with the same friends and people that were around before the whole user phenomenon started. I do pay for more dinners now than I did.” YouTube itself is still trying to justify its hefty sales price. Despite its huge audience, the company generated about $15 million in revenue last year, based on figures provided in Google’s annual report.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgBut that is changing. “What’s changed in the past 10 years is that we see it in more people in the community (that have not been in hospitals),” said Dr. Elizabeth Bancroft, an epidemiologist with the county Department of Public Health. The study found that 15 percent of the infections are being found in the community. “These numbers show that many families are being affected by these drug-resistant infections,” said Dr. Denise Cardo, director of the CDC’s Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion. “Health-care facilities need to make MRSA ( methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus ) prevention a greater priority,” she said. Bancroft said the infections seen in the community are far less severe than those in health-care facilities. “Less than 10 percent never go to the blood or the bone. The majority are skin infections or urine infections,” she said. And by contrast, 36,000 people a year die of influenza, she said. The infections are common in prisons, among athletes and in the military, Bancroft said. The CDC reports that some of the factors that help spread the infections include skin-to-skin contact, openings in the skin such as cuts and abrasions, contaminated items and surfaces, crowded living conditions and poor hygiene.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Burke said she wants the public to be more aware of these infections and introduced the motion so the county Department of Public Health can come back to the board with a report detailing the steps they’ve taken so far to deal with the problem and what can be done in the future. “This is something we really need to pay attention to,” Burke said. The bacteria causes skin infections, some minor, such as pimples and boils, but it can also cause serious problems such as bloodstream infections, surgical wound infections and pneumonia. They most frequently occur among persons in hospitals and health-care facilities who have weakened immune systems. HEALTH: The vote is prompted by research that found infection rate is higher than previously thought. By City News Service Citing a recent study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Los Angeles County supervisors approved a motion Tuesday to determine the public health threat posed by methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus skin infections. The study, which was reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association, found that the number of antibiotic-resistant staph infections are significantly higher than previously thought, with an estimated 19,000 people in 2005 killed and about 94,000 others becoming seriously ill with the infection. last_img read more

first_imgListen to the full exchange between breakfast host Alan Brazil and Arsenal legend Ray Parlour IN FULL above “He’s one of our own!”Ray Parlour has risked the wrath of Tottenham fans by suggesting Arsenal should go all out to sign Spurs star striker Harry Kane this summer.The Gunners legend believes the club may have to spend big to maintain their push for a Premier League title, having fallen short again this term.Arsene Wenger’s men were top at Christmas but have since been leapfrogged by both Spurs and Leicester City, and now seem set to finish in the fourth spot they’ve made their own over recent years.And Parlour believes they need to strengthen the core of the side over the transfer window to make sure another title challenge doesn’t fall by the wayside – starting with one SHOCK transfer tip.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the former Arsenal midfielder said: “I think we might need to spend £70million-£80million this summer to get the right players in to challenge next season.“But they’re not too far away. I think Arsenal are just lacking two real big characters in midfield, they need a Tony Adams type player, like Mats Hummels, at centre-half and a top class striker, there’s no doubt about that.“Look, I played with Ian Wright and Thierry Henry… we all know we need a top quality striker.“Mesut Ozil has created more chances than any other player in the Premier League this season, so that just shows you he’s creating chances, but is there a man to finish them off?”And when asked who he would bring in if he was manager, the Gunners hero cheekily replied: “Harry Kane, maybe?“That’s who I’d go for. He’s an Arsenal fan!“Have you seen the pictures of his in 2004 with an Arsenal shirt on?“He’s one of our own!” Harry Kane celebrating Arsenal winning the title at White Hart Lane in 2004. pic.twitter.com/viTKJCsvYc— MarkAFC👑 (@bhuru_) April 26, 2016last_img read more
