  • Nadal wants extra practice after reaching Monte Carlo final

    first_imgVolcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding “It’s getting there,” said Nishikori, who has missed the past two majors because of a torn tendon. “Little bit sore still.”Nishikori won on his first match point when Zverev scooped a backhand wide. The German player looked jaded, having finished a long and grueling quarterfinal at 9 p.m. on Friday.Nishikori has never won a Masters and last reached a final two years ago in Montreal. He beat Nadal in their last encounter two years ago to take the bronze medal at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.He knows it will be a different challenge toppling him in Monte Carlo.“He’s been dominating crazy this week,” Nishikori said. “On clay he’s the king.”Nadal never looked imperious as he beat Dimitrov for the 11th time in 12 career meetings.“In the second set, he started to miss more,” Nadal said modestly. “I was there solid. That’s all.“Being in 12 finals already here is something difficult to imagine,” added Nadal, who has lost only one, to Djokovic in 2013.Dimitrov came out firing, but he was mostly more miss than hit.The Bulgarian cracked trying to serve for 5-5. He made consecutive double faults and hit a wild forehand long to trail 15-40. He saved one set point but Nadal was in ruthless mode and took the next chance. No matter that he has not dropped a set in six matches since coming back from a recurrence of a right hip injury; he is more focused on ironing out even the smallest of flaws.Even though he crushed Dimitrov, as he had Dominic Thiem in the quarterfinals on Friday, Nadal was not satisfied.“I really had a lot of chances in the first set to have (a) little bit better score. I didn’t convert (them),” he said. “The only way to hold the level, and to hold the chances to keep winning after 10, 12 years, is to improve things.”He remains on course for a record-extending 11th Monte Carlo title and record 31st Masters. He shares the Masters record with Novak Djokovic, whose 30 wins include two here.Nishikori, who is making an encouraging return from a serious right-wrist injury, beat No. 4 Alexander Zverev 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.ADVERTISEMENT Jo Koy draws ire for cutting through Cebu City traffic with ‘wang-wang’ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

  • Armed bandits beat, rob Diamond residents during birthday celebration

    first_imgThe Diamond, EBD house that the gunmen stormed on Saturday eveningThe birthday celebration of a Diamond Housing Scheme, East Bank Demerara resident turned into a nightmare when armed bandits stormed into her house on Saturday evening. At least one of the bandits was toting a gun.Reports are that around 22:00h at 21st Street, Diamond, four men attacked the family and demanded cash and jewellery.During the ordeal, two of the victims were physically assaulted. However, neighbours were not aware of the commotion owing to the loud music at the birthday celebration.Guyana Times understands that the robbery was executed within minutes and the four bandits made good their escape into the dark of the night heading towards Kaneville Village, EBD.According to a Police source, the victims were traumatised and the two who were not injured were busy trying to help the others after the men escaped. They did not notice if the men left on foot or bicycle.However, the source explained that coupled with the darkness of the night and lack of street lights in the area, it would have been difficult to pursue the armed men.He stated that when Police Officers were finally summoned to respond, the ranks did so “quite quickly”, but by then it was too late. The men had already made good their escape with their loot.“You see, that area is like a canefield area, similar to a backdam. It leads into Kaneville, which is a known spot for petty thieves and other criminals to hide out sometimes. Without knowing where they went, what they looked like, or who we are looking for, then it would have been difficult to make arrests in 24 hours,” the Police source added.Meanwhile, the injured family members were treated at the Diamond Diagnostic Centre and sent home.Investigations into the matter are presently ongoing.Meanwhile, between Thursday and Friday, in the county of Berbice, gun-toting bandits struck, attacking two families at Black Bush Polder and carting off cash and jewellery. Upon making a report, family members were told that the Police had no vehicle to respond immediately.Reports are the gunmen, all masked, initially tried to break into the home of a farmer at Johanna North around 01:20h. They shot at him after their attempt failed.Harmond Roopnarine, a 40-year-old farmer; his wife and two children, aged 17 and 16, were at home.The farmer said he heard someone trying to break into his home and stood up, waiting with a cutlass in his hand as they repeatedly hit the window.As one bandit was making his way in from the broken window, the family began to scream while Roopnarine stood next to the window armed with the cutlass. The bandits ordered him to put down the cutlass, but he did not comply. This led to them firing shots at the farmer and demanding, while still outside, that he hand over his gold and money.Roopnarine said another shot was fired in the direction of his wife and children, who were in the bedroom.The two bandits, the farmer said, were outside of his home for about 10 minutes during which time several calls were made to the Mibicuri Police Station, but the family was told that the Police were incapable of responding since they had no vehicle.Meanwhile, at Johanna South, Lennox Ramcharran, 51, a rice farmer, was beaten after gunmen went into his home about 20:30h on Thursday.Ramcharran said he left his two teenage children inside after he heard dogs barking and went outside to investigate only to be confronted by bandits.All three of the bandits had guns, the man recalled. He said that the bandits ransacked the house after his wife gave them money and jewellery. She and her two children were also beaten.The men left with $300,000 and jewellery worth an undisclosed amount. To ensure their escape was without incident, the men grabbed the farmer’s 16-year-old daughter, but released her after they realised that they were not being followed.Ramcharran said shortly after the robbery, two Police Officers arrived on motorbikes.last_img read more

PASADENA – Officials on Friday were investigating a fire that was deliberately set behind the altar area of Throop Unitarian Universalist Church. “We did determine it to be incendiary, which means it was a set fire,” said Pasadena Fire Department arson investigator Jon Samardzich. The fire was reported about 9 p.m. Thursday, when a group of parishioners meeting in an adjacent room noticed smoke. Church members rushed over and used a fire extinguisher on the blaze until firefighters arrived. That probably kept the fire from spreading throughout the altar area, fire and church officials said.

  • HEALTH: HOW TO BE BREAST AWARE DURING BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

    first_imgOctober is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease.Breast cancer affects more than 2,800 women every year and is the most common cancer in women in Ireland.According to the Irish Cancer Society, breast cancer is rare in women under the age of 30 and occurs more often in women over the age of 50. Men also develop breast cancer but this is very rare: about 15 men develop breast cancer each year in Ireland.Although most people are aware of breast cancer, many women are still not breast aware.The Society has called on the Government to keep its promise to screen women between the ages of 65-69 for breast cancer.The Government said the extension of BreastCheck would take place during 2014 but then made a decision to defer it. At least eighty-seven lives are being lost to breast cancers every year due to the delay in screening the upper age group of women, according to the Society.The Irish Cancer Society is also using its Paint it Pink campaign to encourage women who are aged between 50-64 and have been invited to their free breast screening appointment by BreastCheck, to attend their appointment.Anyone who is concerned about breast cancer should contact the Irish Cancer Society’s National Cancer Helpline Freefone 1800 200 700 or visit www.cancer.ie.BE BREAST AWAREIt is important that every woman is breast aware. This means knowing what is normal for you so that if any unusual change occurs, you will recognise it. The sooner you notice a change the better, because if cancer is found early, treatment is more likely to be successful. Get into the habit of looking at and feeling your breasts from time to time. Changes to be aware of* a change in size or shape – it may be that one breast has become larger* changes in the nipple – in direction or shape, pulled in or flattened nipple* changes on or around the nipple – rash, flaky or crusted skin * changes in the skin – dimpling, puckering or redness* ‘orange peel’ appearance of the skin caused by unusually enlarged pores* swelling in your armpit or around your collarbone* a lump, any size, or thickening in your breast* constant pain in one part of your breast or armpitTechniques for checking your breasts* Look for changes by using a mirror so that you can see the breasts from different angles.* Feel for changes: An easy way of feeling your breast is with a soapy hand in the bath or shower. Some women prefer to feel for changes while lying down.The 5 point breast awareness code:Know what is normal for youKnow what changes to look forLook and feel your breastsDiscuss any changes with your GP without delayAttend for routine breast screening if you are aged between 50 and 64Know what is normal for youIt’s important to know what is normal for you. Your breasts will go through many normal changes during your life. For example, they are affected by changes in your hormones during your menstrual cycle, pregnancy and breast feeding and menopause.Your menstrual cycle: Each month, when you are having periods, your breasts often change. They can become bigger, tender and lumpy usually before a period starts and return to normal once the period is over. Some women, however, may have tender, lumpy breasts throughout their cycle.Pregnancy & breast-feeding: The changes that occur during your menstrual cycle continue during pregnancy. While breast-feeding, your breasts may be very enlarged, firm and tender; this is normal at this time. However, you should continue to check your breasts and discuss any unusual changes with your GP.Menopause: After the menopause your breasts will feel softer and they may get bigger or smaller. If there is a change in only one breast, you should discuss this with your doctor. HRT hormone replacement therapy may cause your breasts to feel firmer and quite tender.Positive steps to protect yourself against breast cancerBe a healthy weightBeing a healthy weight is one of the best ways to protect yourself from cancer. Being overweight after the menopause can increase your risk of breast cancer. This is because fat cells in your body make hormones and high levels of certain hormones increase your cancer risk.By eating a healthy diet and being physically active every day helps you to maintain a healthy weight.Be activeWomen who are physically active have a lower risk of breast cancer than less active women. Try to do at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity on five or more days a week. Moderate physical activity is any movement that makes you feel warm and breathe a little deeper.Limit alcoholDrinking alcohol increases your risk of breast cancer. The more you cut down on alcohol, the more you can reduce your risk of breast cancer.Don’t smokeSome recent research suggests that smoking may increase the risk of breast cancer. It is important to note that smoking causes 30% of all cancers.Breastfeed your babyBreastfeeding helps to protect mothers from breast cancer. It is best to breastfeed your baby for the first six months. The longer a woman breastfeeds her baby, the more she reduces her breast cancer risk.http://www.cancer.ie/cancer-information/breast-cancer/prevention#sthash.zM0UnjhW.dpbsHEALTH: HOW TO BE BREAST AWARE DURING BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH was last modified: October 7th, 2014 by John2Share 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:Breast AwareBreast Cancer Awareness Monthdonegallast_img read more

  • WHOPPING €3M SPENT ON DONEGAL SEWERAGE SCHEME WITHOUT A PIPE BEING LAID YET

    first_imgMore than €3M has been spent on the Goath Dobhair Sewerage Scheme without a single pipe being laid yet, it has been revealed.Pearse DohertyThe massive spend has been confirmed by Minister for Environment, Community and Local Government.And now it has ben revealed that it will be at least 2017 before work will start on the West Donegal scheme. Sinn Féin TD for Donegal South West, Pearse Doherty described the situation as a “disgrace.”“Last week I submitted a Parliamentary Question to the Minister for Environment, Community and Local Government to confirm the amount spent on the Gweedore Sewerage Scheme over the past fifteen years.“The response I received from the Minister yesterday states that a staggering €3 million euro has been spent on this scheme, although a pipe has yet to be laid.“Despite the fact that this huge sum has been spent to get the project tender ready, it appears that Irish Water intend to undertake a review of the scheme, which could effectively bringing this scheme back to square one.” He aded that a review of the scheme as proposed by Irish Water means that this project will not be progressed under the current Capital Investment Programme as a scheme to start construction and therefore it will be 2017 at the earliest before construction starts on the scheme.“It has been confirmed by the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government that the contract documents for this scheme had been submitted by Donegal County Council and approved by the Department last year, therefore I see no reason why this scheme should now be reviewed at this point.“In my view, this scheme should be progressed without further delay given the huge amount of time, effort and money that has been spent in getting the scheme to this point. Over the past fifteen years the Department has put numerous obstacles in the way of progressing this scheme, which has resulted in the waste of huge amounts of money. It makes no sense economically to delay this scheme any longer and it must now be progressed in a timely fashion.“It is an absolute disgrace that fifteen years, millions of euros and countless Government promises later, the people of Gweedore are no further forward in having this crucial infrastructure for the area realised. I intend to keep in regular contact with officials in Irish Water to ensure that the best possible case for the progression of the Gweedore Sewerage Scheme is put forward.”WHOPPING €3M SPENT ON DONEGAL SEWERAGE SCHEME WITHOUT A PIPE BEING LAID YET was last modified: September 25th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:Gaoth DobhairPearse Dohertysewerage schemelast_img read more
