NBA notes: Thomas gets an extension

first_imgSo have gave Thomas a multiyear contract extension Monday, nine months after he warned the Knicks coach and team president that the team needed to show improvement this season or he’d be out of a job. “My thinking was that it was going to go the whole season,” Dolan said. “But in the last few weeks I’ve just become absolutely convinced and I think they’ve shown, they’ve done what we asked them to do. And I felt that now is the time to do it.” Isiah Thomas delivered “evident progress” sooner than needed. Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan planned to wait all season before deciding on Thomas’ future with the Knicks. But when New York fought through a few recent injuries to move into playoff position, Dolan concluded he no longer needed to wait. Amaechi became the first NBA player to acknowledge his homosexuality with the release of his memoir, “Man in the Middle” in February. The book is currently on The New York Times’ Best Seller List. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!center_img The announcement comes with the Knicks having climbed into eighth place in the Eastern Conference. Dolan said he reached his decision sometime in the last 10 days, and Thomas said he was told about it Sunday night. Neither he nor Dolan provided any contract details, other than that Thomas would keep both jobs. “I feel good that the uncertainty about my professional situation is cleared up,” Thomas said after practice. “But again, the most important thing is that we keep our team moving forward and we stay focused and continue to try to get into the playoffs.” Thomas added the coaching duties to his other role in June after Dolan fired Larry Brown following one season. But along with the job came the ultimatum, though Dolan never publicly said what the Knicks needed to do this season to demonstrate the “significant” and “evident” progress he sought. Amaechi signs endorsement deal: Former NBA player John Amaechi became the first openly gay male athlete to sign an endorsement deal with a mainstream company. HeadBlade Inc., creators of a popular head-shaving razor, announced it had signed Amaechi to a multiyear deal. Financial terms were undisclosed. last_img read more

Tiffany Diamond definitely a cut above

first_img“It’s on summer vacation,” Fernanda M. Kellogg, president of the Tiffany & Co. Foundation, said of the loan. The stone is priceless, she said. It has been worn only twice – once by a Rhode Island socialite and once by actress Audrey Hepburn in a promotion for the film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” Linda Buckley, a Tiffany vice president, said. Post said displaying the gem is part of a celebration of the foundation’s endowment to the Smithsonian, which allows the museum to purchase gems to fill in its collection. The Tiffany Diamond’s 82 facets are 24 more than on a traditional brilliant-cut diamond. The facets are intended to maximize the sparkle, called fire in diamonds. Discovered in South Africa in 1877, the stone was purchased by New York jeweler Charles Tiffany. His gemologist, George Frederick Kunz studied the gem for a year before beginning to cut it -reducing it from 287 carats to its current size. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Perched on it is a gem-encrusted bird known as the “Bird on a Rock,” designed in the early 1960s by Jean Schlumberger. The bird is gold and platinum with white and yellow diamonds accented by a ruby eye. “It’s the largest diamond on public display in the United States,” Jeffrey E.

B.C. Government formally states opposition to Kinder Morgan pipeline

first_imgVICTORIA, B.C. — Often accused of being too oil and gas industry friendly, the BC government is formally coming out against the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion.Although an official provincial news release says the Liberals will continue to evaluate the project, based on the company’s ability to meet five previously stated government requirements, Environment Minister Mary Polak has told the Vancouver Sun a final submission to the National Energy Board urges it not to approve the project.- Advertisement -Four years ago, the Clark Government laid out the five conditions for approval of any pipeline project, and it believes Kinder Morgan has failed to meet conditions to develop “world-leading” prevention and response plans to address a land or water spill.Although Lake didn’t name the second project, any guess other than the Northern Gateway pipeline of Enbridge is almost assuredly wrong — and by challenging another of the industries giants, the largest energy infrastructure company in North America, the Clark government has sent shock waves across the province.The $6.8 billion Trans-Mountain proposal calls for Kinder Morgan to twin the existing pipeline from the Alberta oil sands region to Burnaby, which would nearly triple its shipment capacity to about 890,000 of crude oil a day.However, the Houston based company has also been cited by the U.S. government in 24 incidents which led to five federal enforcement actions from 2006 to 2014.Advertisementlast_img read more

Barcelona through to Cup semis as Coutinho makes debut

first_img0Shares0000Barcelona’s forward Lionel Messi controls the ball during the Spanish Copa del Rey quarter-final second leg football match against Espanyol January 25, 2018 © AFP / LLUIS GENEBARCELONA, Spain, Jan 26 – Lionel Messi scored what proved to be the winner as Barcelona beat Espanyol 2-0 to reach the Copa del Rey semi-finals on Thursday in a game that saw Philippe Coutinho make his long-awaited debut.Luis Suarez scored an early opener in the quarter-final second leg before Messi’s deflected effort gave Barcelona a 2-1 aggregate advantage as the holders overturned a 1-0 deficit from last week’s first leg. Messi had missed a penalty in that match as the leaders of La Liga were beaten for the first time since August, but they did enough on Thursday to join Sevilla, Valencia and Leganes in Friday’s draw for the last four.Coutinho was named on the bench for the first time since his 160 million-euro ($192 million) transfer from Liverpool earlier this month.The 25-year-old Brazilian was introduced midway through the second half in place of Andres Iniesta, entering the Camp Nou pitch to a huge roar from the home crowd.By that point Ernesto Valverde’s men had already turned the tie around against the club for whom Coutinho played on loan from Inter Milan in 2012.“We are placing a lot of hope in Coutinho,” said Valverde.“He is going to do well for us in the game. He can help us because he knows how to create, he’s good in the one-on-one situations.“He is also a player who’s able to see the free man. We know he can be a danger with a shot or a decisive pass. I think he made a good start.”Suarez headed in Aleix Vidal’s cross from the right at the back post in the ninth minute to open the scoring on the night and level the tie on aggregate.The Uruguayan has now scored seven times in Barcelona’s last six matches.Messi scored in the 25th minute, his shot beating goalkeeper Pau Lopez with the help of a sizeable deflection off Brazilian defender Naldo.It was Barcelona’s 4,000th goal at the Camp Nou in an official game.Barcelona, who have won the Copa del Rey in the last three seasons, had a host of chances to put the tie to bed but saw out the victory, with Espanyol unable to get the away goal that would have swung the tie.On Wednesday, Real Madrid were eliminated by Leganes, a 2-1 defeat at the Santiago Bernabeu seeing them go out on away goals and increasing the pressure further on coach Zinedine Zidane.Valencia beat Alaves on penalties while Sevilla beat Atletico Madrid 3-1 on Tuesday for a 5-1 aggregate success.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Three things we learned from Barca v Man Utd

first_img0Shares0000Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer shows his frustration © AFP / LLUIS GENEBARCELONA, Spain, Apr 17 – Barcelona cruised into the Champions League semi-finals as their 3-0 win against Manchester United sealed a 4-0 aggregate success on Tuesday.Here, AFP Sport looks at three things we learned from the quarter-final second-leg clash: No Camp Nou repeat for SolskjaerBarcelona’s Camp Nou will always hold a special place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s heart, but the Manchester United manager won’t regard the famous old arena with quite as much fondness after this frustrating loss.It was the first time Solskjaer had played or managed at the Camp Nou since scoring the treble-clinching winner for United in the final seconds of the 1999 Champions League final against Bayern Munich.Twenty years after the goal he has seen a “million times” since, lightning didn’t strike twice for the Norwegian.“We are confident but humble enough to know it’s our hardest night of the season,” he said in a prescient comment just before kick-off.United were aiming to overturn another first-leg deficit after their epic effort in recovering from 2-0 down to beat Paris Saint-Germain on away goals in the last 16.But, crucially, Marcus Rashford hit the bar with a glorious chance to give United the lead inside 40 seconds and it wasn’t long before Lionel Messi put the tie beyond Solskjaer’s reach.Messi feasts on English foes againBarcelona’s Lionel Messi celebrates his latest demolition of English opponents © AFP / Josep LAGOLionel Messi extended his incredible record of tormenting Premier League clubs in the Champions League.Messi has now scored 24 goals in 32 Champions League games against English opponents, more than any other player in the tournament.Accelerating away from Fred, Messi was granted too much space by United defender Chris Smalling on the edge of the area and took full advantage with a superb low shot that flashed past David de Gea in the 16th minute.It was a sweet moment of revenge for Messi, who suffered a facial injury in the first leg after a clash with Smalling.Messi’s first Champions League quarter-final goal since April 2013 ended a run of 12 games at this stage without netting.Just four minutes later, Messi effectively clinched Barca’s return to the semi-finals for the first time since 2015 with a helping hand from United keeper De Gea, whose woeful attempted save failed to stop the Argentine’s weak shot slip under his body.Messi has 45 goals in 41 games in all competitions this season, with his 10 in the Champions League making him the tournament’s leading scorer in 2018-19.With Messi on their side, it’s no wonder Barca are now unbeaten in 31 Champions League home games.Liverpool remain the only Premier League club to win at the Camp Nou in 24 attempts dating back to February 2007.Coutinho makes his pointBarcelona’s Philippe Coutinho made his point to the critics after scoring against Manchester United © AFP / LLUIS GENEPhilippe Coutinho has endured a difficult time since moving to Barcelona for £142 million ($185 million) in January 2018, but the former Liverpool forward gave a timely reminder of his quality with a stunning strike to wrap up the victory.Substituted during Barca’s recent win over Rayo Vallecano at the Camp Nou, Coutinho’s disappointing form reached a new low when he was whistled by a small section of his own fans.But the Brazilian was handed a start against United as one of Barca’s front three instead of Ousmane Dembele, who has just recovered from a hamstring injury, and at last he showed a glimpse of the talent that made him such a favourite of United’s rivals at Anfield.With Barca already well on the way to the last four by the 61st minute, Coutinho had nothing to lose when he unleased a majestic curling effort that raced into the top corner from 20 yards.Coutinho seized the opportunity to emphasise that he won’t be affected by the doubters, celebrating the goal by sticking his fingers in both ears while staring at the crowd in a defiant gesture.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
