NBA free agency: L.A. Lakers have set off duds instead of fireworks

first_imgTheir first shot went way off the mark, prompting the Lakers to scramble for a rebound and convert on a second attempt.The Lakers’ hustle paid off. After free-agent power forward LaMarcus Aldridge reportedly scoffed at the Lakers stressing Hollywood over basketball in their first meeting late Tuesday night, the Lakers persuaded Aldridge to meet again on Thursday just to talk X’s and O’s. Former Showtime Laker Magic Johnson also tried contacting Aldridge over the phone between the first and second meetings, according to a league source, though it’s unclear if they connected. But will this second shot attempt actually help the Lakers win in the free agency sweepstakes? Or is it just a pointless basket in a blowout game? The Lakers are waiting to find out. It is believed Aldridge will spend Fourth of July weekend both to watch fireworks and mull over his future. There are plenty of possibilities. The Lakers also missed out on potential consolation prizes on Friday, such as center Robin Lopez (went to New York) and swingman Tobias Harris (stayed in Orlando). It remains unclear if the Lakers have made any substantial progress with free-agent center Kosta Koufos. All of that leaves the Lakers with little reason to celebrate or relax during the holiday weekend, a time that is supposed to feature fireworks instead of duds. Does he join San Antonio to ensure the endless continuity coach Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan have established? Or does Aldridge consider the Suns’ acquisition of Tyson Chandler a more effective one-two punch? Does Aldridge become persuaded by the determined Pat Riley to take his talents to South Beach? Or does he give Portland another chance?The Lakers do not want any of those scenarios to happen, obviously. They would much prefer that Aldridge extends his Orange County summer residency into a year-long stay. If so, the Lakers would finally hit a home run in free agency after striking out all week. First, the Lakers flew cross-country to see center Greg Monroe in Washington D.C., only for him to choose the Milwaukee Bucks. That marked the exact opposite move Kareem Abdul-Jabbar made nearly 40 years ago. Then, DeAndre Jordan agreed to a four-year, $80 million deal with the Dallas Mavericks on Friday, leaving the Clippers without a star center they wanted to retain and the Lakers without a star center they wanted to take away from their intra-city rival. Aldridge’s decision leaves the Lakers in a holding pattern. It will determine whether the Lakers salvage a failed free agency sweepstakes thus far. It also appears to have left the Lakers reluctant to make any other moves.That explains why the Lakers lost Ed Davis, who accepted a three-year, $20 million deal with the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday after averaging 8.3 points per game as well as career highs in field-goal percentage (60.1), rebounding (7.6), blocked shots (1.2) and assists (1.2) in his lone season with the Lakers. center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Nothing going right for Green and White as Leafs drop seventh straight game

first_imgSure it’s nice that the calendar only reads November on the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season.But at some point, the Nelson Leafs had better start turning around their season.The Green and White lost for the seventh straight time Sunday in Spokane, dropping a 4-1 KIJHL decision to the Braves in action in the Lilac City.Like many of the previous six losses, the Leafs started strong.Sunday, the same story unfolded as Nelson outshot the Braves 17-9 in the first period but failed to score. Second period, again the Leafs held the advantage on the shot counter, this time by an 18-8 margin. And the Canadian visitors even took the lead when Ryan Piva notched his eighth marker of the season.However, before the end of the period Spokane’s Carter Jones tied the game.Jones then scored this second of the game midway through the third period. Mark Pretorius increased the lead to 3-1 just over a minute later before Paxton Malone scored with one second left in the game to complete the scoring.Nelson outshot the Braves 49-32 in the game making a winner out of netminder J.J. Pichette.Jason Sandhu took the loss for Nelson.Nelson drops to 8-11-0-0-2, fourth in the Murdoch Division and 14 points behind front running Beaver Valley Nitehawks. The Hawks continue to soar in the KIJJHL, winners of 12 straight games and tied for top spot in the league with Creston Valley Thunder Cats — each with 32 points.Nelson remains on the road travelling to the East Kootenay for games against Golden Rockets Friday and Columbia Valley Rockies Saturday.On the positive front, both Eddie Mountain teams are also struggling in the standings.But that doesn’t mean much for a team that was talked up as being a threat to take over the Murdoch Division of the KIJHL after a disastrous 2015-16 season of a year ago.last_img read more

Casey to offer €1M for vacant homes at centre of Traveller row

first_imgDonegal-based businessman Peter Casey will offer €1m to buy the unoccupied homes in Tipperary that led to the Traveller row which dominated last year’s Presidential election.He wants eventually to make the homes available on a rent-to-buy scheme.Mr Casey said he plans to speak with officials in Tipperary County Council tomorrow about buying the six homes at Cabragh Bridge that were at the centre of negative comments the former Presidential candidate made about the Travelling community. Speaking to the Sunday Independent yesterday, Mr Casey said he will offer Tipperary County Council €1m for the six homes.He then plans to turn the enclave into a gated community equipped with security cameras, before making the homes available to rent.He insisted the homes will be made available at competitive prices for prospective tenants on a five-year lease.At the end of the lease he will offer the tenants an opportunity to buy the homes. He has also promised to provide a loan at a competitive rate to help them fund 50pc of the cost of buying the home. “They will have to get the remaining 50pc from one of the commercial banks or elsewhere,” Mr Casey said.The €1.7m estate has been at the centre of a bitter stand-off between Tipperary County Council and local Travellers. This led to Mr Casey claiming the State’s recognition of the Travelling community as an ethnic minority was “a load of nonsense”.Two five-bedroom houses and four three-bedroom houses were initially built for members of an extended Traveller family, who eventually refused to move into the completed homes in late 2018 claiming the council should also provide stables and land for their horses. The houses have remained vacant since.Mr Casey said he has been in informal contact with the local authority about the homes but his offer has not yet been made. Plans are in place for him to make the €1m offer to Tipperary County Council officials tomorrow.The intention behind the purchase is to raise awareness of the vacant or unoccupied houses throughout the country that could be used to solve the housing crisis, he said. “I will definitely make money, I am not Robin Hood. I see it as a solution towards solving a problem that is there. These houses are sitting there empty, it is just ridiculous,” he said.“Instead of giving people free houses, the Government needs to co-fund people into buying them – make it affordable to buy homes.“If somebody has rented a house for five years they have demonstrated they are financially solid, so I would have no problem co-funding them and loaning them 50pc of the money they need to make the payment.”Yesterday Mr Casey said he expected to make a profit of 1pc to 5pc from the scheme if his plans to purchase were successful. If his profit margin increases to 10pc or more he said sums made above this threshold will be donated to charity. He insisted €1m was a fair price for the properties.“I will make them a very attractive place to live and I would hope to eventually get planning permission to build more houses around there.“I will put them on the rental market and whoever wants to rent them will be interviewed and they will be made [available at] a very affordable rent.“Then at the end of five years I will give them an option to buy the property at market rate if they have been good tenants. If they want to buy them I will give them a loan for up to 50pc towards the cost of purchasing.”Casey to offer €1M for vacant homes at centre of Traveller row was last modified: July 15th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalPeter Caseyrowtravellerlast_img read more

NPO encourages critical thinking in schools

first_imgThinking Schools SA is revolutioninsing the way children are taught in school. The NPO calls for an approach that encourages learners to think more creatively and critically. (Images and Videos: Thinking Schools SA)Schools in South Africa assess learners through a standardised testing method. But many educational professionals are calling for an overhaul of the current system. They believe the focus should rather be on a more creative approach that encourages critical thinking.One of these organisations isThinking Schools South Africa (TSSA), a non-profit organisation that helps schools to transform the way they teach and learn through encouraging learners to think critically. It is backed by one of South Africa’s most well-known education commentators, Professor Jonathan Jansen.TSSA was established in 2011 after attendees at the International Association for Cognitive Education in Southern Africa conference, held in Cape Town, agreed to start an NPO that focused on the concept of thinking schools.Rector and vice-chancellor of the University of the Free State, Professor Jonathan Jansen, supports TSSA’s approach to learning.It works with management and teachers to develop whole school thinking approaches and languages. It believes that critical thinking is not something teachers are explicitly trained to do and that the curriculum does not demand it. Instead, schools assess learners on how well they recall content. This results in graduates who are not able to think critically.TSSA implements thinking skills in schools by integrating critical thinking into the curriculum and making it a core part of how teaching and learning takes place.Watch these videos to learn more about TSSA:Learners gave their feedback on TSSA’s creative thinking approach.Director of the Discover Centre for Health Journalism at Rhodes University, Professor Harry Dugmore, tells TSSA what tertiary institutions look for in students.Have you played your part to build a better South Africa for all?
