Lin lifts Charlotte over Spurs in NBA

first_img TIGHT RACE CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (AP): Jeremy Lin scored 15 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter as Charlotte overcame a 23-point deficit to snap San Antonio’s six-game winning streak, winning 91-88. Lin was 11 of 18 from the field and hit all four three-point attempts, including three in the fourth quarter. Courtney Lee had 17 points, Nicolas Batum added 15, and Cody Zeller grabbed 14 rebounds for the Hornets, who bounced back from a disappointing loss to the Denver Nuggets on Saturday night. The Spurs had two chances to tie it at the end of regulation, but Patty Mills and Danny Green both missed three-point attempts. In Cleveland, LeBron James scored 33 points and had his 41st career triple-double as the Cavaliers clinched their second straight Central Division title with a comfortable 124-91 victory over Denver. James added 11 rebounds and 11 assists before checking out with 6:02 left to a thunderous ovation. He scored 17 in the first quarter, helping the Cavs build a 19-point lead and erase the memory of an embarrassing loss on Saturday in Miami. The Nuggets fought back and briefly led before the Cavs regrouped, scored 68 after half-time to notch their 50th win. Will Barton scored 27 for the Nuggets. Andre Drummond’s tip-in with two seconds remaining lifted Detroit over Milwaukee, 92-91. The Pistons, who are in a tight race for the final play-off spot in the Eastern Conference, came out inexplicably flat and trailed by 17 points in the first half. They were down 13 in the third quarter before chipping away at Milwaukee’s lead in the fourth. Drummond was outplayed badly early on by Greg Monroe, but when Kentavious Caldwell-Pope missed from the perimeter in the final seconds, Drummond was able to tip the ball in. Draymond Green had 24 points, nine rebounds and six assists to help Golden State narrowly avoid their first two-game skid in nearly a year with a 109-104 victory at Minnesota. Klay Thompson scored 17 points and hit all five of his three-pointers, and the Warriors (63-7) overcame a second straight poor shooting night from Stephen Curry. He missed 11 of his 17 shots, including seven of his nine three-pointers, but still had 19 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds.last_img read more

T&T agrees to help Guyana develop oil and gas sector

first_img— MoU to be signed in NovemberThe Governments of Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago (T&T) are set to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) by November, which will see the twin island republic providing technical assistance to this country for the development of its oil and gas sector, the Trinidad Guardian newspaper has reported.The newspaper quoted Trinidad’s Energy Minister Nicole Olivierre as saying she met with President David Granger and Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman in late August.Minister Olivierre said President Granger asked for support and cooperation in the areas of education, with emphasis on engineering and technical studies, infrastructure development, and agriculture.The MoU, according to Minister Olivierre, is being drafted and will be signed and executed in November, while a delegation representing Guyana’s Private and Public Sectors will visit that country to view the operations and facilities available there.President David Granger and Trinidad and Tobago’s Energy and Energy Industries Minister Nicole Olivierre during her visit to Guyana in August 2016Natural Resources Minister Raphael TrotmanOptions for monetising natural gas, commercial and fiscal arrangements in the oil and gas sector, learning from T&T in the development of local content and training of industry practitioners are some of the specific areas of interest, Olivierre revealed.She added that Government will provide guidance to ensure that the Guyana Government does not make mistakes Trinidad would have made in developing its own oil and gas sector.Texas-based oil and gas giant, ExxonMobil Corporation is currently conducting exploratory drilling for oil and gas in its Stabroek Block; a concession off Guyana’s coastland.The company back in July 2016 had announced that drilling results from the Liza-2 well, the second exploration well in the Stabroek block offshore Guyana, confirmed a world-class discovery of oil with a recoverable resource of between 800 million and 1.4 billion oil-equivalent barrels.“We are excited by the results of a production test of the Liza-2 well, which confirms the presence of high-quality oil from the same high-porosity sandstone reservoirs that we saw in the Liza-1 well completed in 2015… We, along with our co-venturers, look forward to continuing a strong partnership with the Government of Guyana to further evaluate the commercial potential for this exciting prospect,” said ExxonMobil President Steve Greenlee, in a statement.However, earlier this month, ExxonMobil reported that its Skipjack well did not yield “commercial quantities of hydrocarbons” while exploring in its concession.ExxonMobil’s local manager, Jeff Simmons, was quoted in sections of the local media confirming that the indeed the Skipjack well did not turn up the results expected.ExxonMobil had however stated that it was continuing with plans to develop the Liza well with its declared capacity of between 800 million and 1.4 billion barrels of oil equivalent and also look for other possible targets for drilling.Liza-2 hit more than 190 feet of net pay and caused ExxonMobil, along with partners Hess and CNOOC subsidiary Nexen, to boost their estimate of the recoverable oil in place at Liza.In July, ExxonMobil submitted a development plan for Liza to Guyana’s Environmental Protection Agency to begin the environmental review process.That plan calls for a pair of rigs to drill development wells from two drill centres, each with a corresponding water injection site to the east.Production will be sent to an FPSO with capacity of around 100,000 barrels of oil per day. Under that plan, first production from the field would come online sometime in 2020 or as late as 2021.last_img read more

Region 6 could lose $600M to paddy bugs – RPA

first_img…as farmers still awaiting GRBD’s aerial sprayingRPA President,Leeka RambrichA bug-infested fieldRice farmers in Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) could lose more than half a billion dollars from the current autumn crop. This is according to President of the Guyana Rice Producers Association (RPA) Leeka Rambrich.On August 16, General Manager of the Guyana Rice Development Board (GRDB), Nezam Hassan told Guyana Times that the exercise of aerial spraying to combat the paddy bugs will commence in Region Six.This was after rice farmers had taken to the streets protesting and demanding that the GRDB conduct aerial spraying for the bugs which cost the region to lose more than a billion dollars last crop.According to Rambrich, he discussed the issue with the General Manager of the GRDB on Tuesday, who informed him that he has to submit a 13-page document to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in order to have permission for aerial spraying in Region Six.Three weeks ago, rice farmers on the Corentyne had intensified their calls for the GRDB to conduct aerial spraying in the region. It was then that Rambrich disclosed that Hassan was given the green light for aerial spraying to be conducted in the rice-producing regions except Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam).According to Rambrich, spraying is yet to commence.“While the General Manager is dragging his feet on this issue, rice farmers are losing money and the country as a whole is losing money. I feel that the General Manager has erred in his job. Because the Board had given him the go-ahead or permission three months ago to do aerial spraying. The General Manager sat on the directives of the Board and did nothing. “The RPA President noted that it was only after farmers started demanding aerial spraying that the GRDB General Manager commenced negotiating and putting systems in place.“And up to now nothing has been done, he cannot get anything started,” Rambrich said while adding that he is of the opinion that several agencies are not taking into consideration the present situation on the ground.“The EPA needs to work with the farmers and the General Manager of the Board. They should realise how much money the farmers lose and how much money farmers lost during the last crop. In Region Six alone, farmers lost $1.5 billion dollars due to paddy bug damage and again we have seen the presence of paddy bugs in the fields.”“I am projecting by the end of this crop, we will see a ten per cent damage as a result of paddy bug infestation in Region Six.”The region, he noted, is expected to produce two million bags of paddy this crop.“Ten per cent would be 200,000 bags of paddy. At $3000 per bag, it would be $600,000. So, the region stands to lose a lot of money again. Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice) has been given permission to do aerial spraying. I cannot understand why Region Six is being segregated and being treated differently from other regions.”“I am appealing to all of the responsible agencies to come forward and support the Board’s initiative of aerial spraying to save the rice industry and save farmers’ crop from insects,” the RPA President said.last_img read more

Fallen freeway ramp to reopen within 10 days

first_imgOAKLAND – One of two freeway connectors shut down by Sunday’s collapse of an overpass will reopen within 10 days after officials determined it had not been as badly damaged as they had feared, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said Wednesday. The ramp – connecting westbound Interstate 80 to southbound Interstate 880 – was blocked Sunday morning when the fire from a burning tanker truck collapsed the overhead connecter of Interstate 580 onto the lower freeway. Crews finished clearing debris from the collapse near the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge on Tuesday. Tests later determined the lower section would not have to be rebuilt from scratch. “I have good news,” Schwarzenegger said at a capital news conference, predicting the lower roadway could be opened in as little as seven days. Schwarzenegger also said the Federal Highway Administration has agreed to pay for the bulk of the repairs to both sections of freeway. “We asked the federal government to come in and pay for this and they have committed to,” the governor said. “They recognize it is their responsibility.” Despite the promise of quick relief for Interstate 880 commuters, California Department of Transportation Director Will Kempton said the agency does not know how long it will take to complete the larger reconstruction of Interstate 580, which connects San Francisco to its eastern suburbs. Kempton said the agency hopes to complete designs for the reconstructed overpass in the coming days. The agency also will solicit bids and hire a contractor by the middle of next week, he said. Schwarzenegger said the state will offer financial incentives for the company to work around the clock and finish as soon as possible. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

‘Just Eat It’ to make Fort St. John big screen debut next week

first_imgIf gardening isn’t a hobby of yours, learning to plan means and shopping trips are crucial to preventing food being wasted, said Mason-Bennett.Tickets are available through NEAT’s website, or at the door for $10. The show starts on October 8th at 6:00 PM. NEAT is a bringing a documentary about food waste to the Aurora Cinema on Thursday, October 8th.The film was created by Jen Rustemeyer and Grant Baldwin, who dug into just how much of our food is being wasted every day by committing to eating nothing but discarded ingredients.- Advertisement -Since it’s premiere at the Vancouver International Film Festival, Just Eat It has drawn attention to the issue of over-discarded produce – and companies like Loblaws have even come out with room in their stores for Naturally Imperfect produce.Karen Mason-Bennett with NEAT says the decision to air Just Eat It now was due to the timing of food security programs wrapping up.“We’ve done a lot of food security programs lately, and it just became timely.” she said.One program they’ve conducted recently is an annual canning event in the community, which creates a sizable donation to the Salvation Army Food Bank.Advertisement Mason-Bennett said they are looking to send it out near the end of October.NEAT runs a few different programs that revolve around growing and canning your own food to cut back on waste.For example, grade 3 students can take part in a program in the spring which will teach them to grow their own food.“We’re just starting to dive into those aspects develop some proactive programming around organic waste.”Advertisementlast_img read more

Done deal: This striker is on his way to Anfield but should Liverpool welcome him in January?

first_img2 Divock Origi has been linked with an early move to Liverpool 2 Liverpool’s attacking woes reached a new low this season when it was confirmed that star striker Daniel Sturridge will face a further spell on the sidelines.The England man’s absence has been keenly felt by the Redmen, and the news that he could be out for another six weeks is a major blow.With Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert struggling to find the net and Fabio Borini only at Anfield because the club couldn’t get rid of the Italian in the summer, boss Brendan Rodgers faces a struggle to turn around a stuttering campaign.According to reports, the Kop chief is considering a surprise move to recall Divock Origi from his season-long loan at Ligue 1 side Lille – a move that would cost Liverpool in the region of £5m.The Belgian sensation officially signed for the Merseysiders from Lille in the summer, but as part of the deal was immediately loaned back to the club for the 2014/15 campaign.But while Kopites demand a resolution to their striking problems, would recalling Origi be a smart move?Take a look at the youngster’s stats this season… The answer in a nutshell, would seem to be ‘no’.Liverpool’s problems in attack go deeper than simply a quick personnel change.The loss of Luis Suarez was more damaging than many first thought and while it seems almost unfathomable that there wasn’t some sort of contingency plan in place ahead of his – almost inevitable – departure, that is what appears to be the case.Although Origi is an exciting, if raw, talent, it would be incredibly unfair to expect him to turn around Liverpool’s attacking fortunes in an instant.At 19 years old, he is in an important developmental period in his career and requires time and patience, rather than expectation and pressure to perform.While he proved for Belgium during the World Cup that he knows the route to goal, he has hardly been prolific for Lille this season.Four goals in 18 appearances across all competitions is an ok return for a developing striker, but it is by no means anything that Rodgers would be able to place faith in.Indeed a conversion rate of less than 20 per cent is not anywhere near good enough to warrant immediate first team football at Anfield, while his profligacy and inconsistency in front of goal is more comparable with Balotelli than Sturridge.Origi could prove to be an excellent acquisition for Liverpool, but that doesn’t mean he is schooled in the Reds’ style and traditions. He will need time to adjust to life at Liverpool and the pressure of the Premier League.If Rodgers truly believes that he needs to bring someone in during the January transfer window, then his best policy would be to move for a vastly more experienced player who has a track record of settling quickly.CLICK HERE TO SEE SIX SUPER STRIKERS LIVERPOOL SHOULD LOOK AT SIGNINGLiverpool fans, should you recall Divock Origi from his loan or try to bring in a more experienced striker?
