Davis thinks his foul woes ‘cost’ Taipei the game vs Gilas

But I’m very proud of us because we never did give up. We really kept it close, we gave up some late 3-point shots in the end, but overall, we gotta let this be learning lesson for us, and hopefully, we’ll prepare to get them back when they come to Taipei,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Jim Boeheim returns to Syracuse bench after fatal accident

first_imgMOST READ SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte “First and foremost to the Jimenez family I want them to know how truly devastated I am for my involvement and the loss of a loved one,” Boeheim read from a prepared statement. “The grief and pain his family is feeling at this time is, simply put, unimaginable. Juli, my family, and I are heartbroken. I love this community, and to see so many of my community members rally around the Jimenez family is a reminder of how special a community central New York is.”For Boeheim, who struck and killed Jimenez on a darkened highway that leads out of town, the game was his first public appearance since the accident. Boeheim, in his 43rd season as head coach at his alma mater, had addressed the team Thursday but did not take part in practice. Although he returned for practice Friday, he had not appeared in public until he made his way into the Carrier Dome to a big ovation from the crowd of 35,642.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chiefSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesHead down, Boeheim made his way to center court and acknowledged the crowd with a brief wave before giving Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski a heartfelt hug.“That was such an incredible environment,” Krzyzewski said. “The support the fans gave the team and the support they gave Jim was great and such an emotional time.” Grace Poe files bill to protect govt teachers from malicious accusations PDEA chief backs Robredo in revealing ‘discoveries’ on drug war Swingman Cameron Reddish was out with an illness and point guard Tre Jones suffered a shoulder injury roughly 5 1/2 minutes in to put Duke down two starters in that one. It was a completely different team, just like it was on Saturday without injured freshman star Zion Williamson, who had a season-high 35 points in that first game.Williamson watched from the bench as freshman forward RJ Barrett, who had a triple-double and double-double in Duke’s previous two games, scored 30 points to help fill the void and Alex O’Connell had a career-high 20 in his first start of the season.Tyus Battle led Syracuse with 16 points on 4-of-17 shooting, Elijah Hughes had 12, and Marek Dolezaj and Frank Howard had 10 apiece as the Orange hit only 1 of 11 3-pointers in the decisive second half.“Our offense is really the difference,” Boeheim said. “They’re going to score points. They’re a tremendous offensive team. If you can hold them in the 70s, that’s a pretty good effort, but offensively we didn’t get the movement we need to and we didn’t make shots when we got them.”For freshman Orange guard Buddy Boeheim, the coach’s youngest son, the whole night was a moment that forever will be etched in his mind.“When he first came out, it was just a great moment for the community, a great moment for him,” Buddy said. “It was just great having him there. You obviously want to win, but it’s more than basketball sometimes.”ATTENDANCE RECORDThe game set a record for an on-campus basketball game, eclipsing the mark of 34,446, twice against Duke.SHOW OF SUPPORTSeveral former Orange stars attended the game, including Sherman Douglas, Derrick Coleman, John Wallace, Todd Burgan and Billy Owens.

Police Chief Kenton T. Buckner said Thursday night there was “no reason to believe that there are criminal charges that will be coming for anyone.”Once the game started, it seemed like just another tilt featuring the two winningest coaches in NCAA Division I history, except for the massive crowd that made the dome’s walls shake every time the Orange scored.

POWERADE ISOTONIC SEQTL- ROUND 2 WRAP

first_imgDodgers (Men’s Open) and Crushers (Women’s Open) sit atop the premiership ladder in the respective elite divisions after some high quality fixtures dominated second round action Friday night in Brisbane Metropolitan Touch Association’s 2006 Powerade Isotonic SEQTL.The in form Dodgers machine picked up from where they left off last week in the Men’s Open division with a slashing 11 – 6 score line over Country Club United.Fielding only eight players due to injury and other commitments, the Dodgers boys worked brilliantly together to cover for a lack of numbers by working a six- player rotation across 4 positions with young wingers Terry Thompson and Jesse Green admirably playing the whole game without a substitute.It’s early days yet, but with a number of State and National representatives to come back into the side, Centre bet may be tempted to make the “no more bets” call on the Labrador lads as the odds shorten of a maiden premiership crown in 2006. Boasting a strong understanding and combination across the playing roster, the Dodgers boys are amongst the most talented teams in the competition. Blessed with a strong NTL winning Sharkies flavour, the Coasties are spoilt for choice turning on a variety of expansive or short games to suit the occasion at will.Australian Open Representatives Ben Robinson, Ben Mc Cullen, Riki Best, Nathan Jones and Qld Open Men’s player Ryan Pollock mix up their game easily with their Kiwi superstars and a host of young up and comers from the SQBD region.Whilst things “weren’t exactly treasury” for Country Club on Friday night, to their credit they never stopped trying, with evergreen veteran Dave Raper directing traffic better than Tom Croydon at peak hour on the South East Freeway. In the early feature match on Field One at 7.20pm, Redcliffe Colts and Uni-Rebels squared off in what was always going to be a keenly contested affair.Uni-Rebels had a narrow victory over premiers Crushers last week, and despite losing the north side battle in their first game against CCU, the Colts boys showed enough to suggest that they were going to cause some real headaches when they hit their stride.Colts mixed up their traditional power driving and short game with some great expansive ball movement to defeat Rebels 6 – 4.Uni-Rebels overcame a sluggish start to reel in a 3 touch down deficit on the stroke of half time to take the score to 3 –2.Shortly after half-time Qld Open Mixed player Damian Moar, making a welcome return to Uni-Rebels, crafted a touchdown for his team and at 3-3 it was game on.The game ebbed and flowed with both sides threatening to blow the contest open at different points. Eventually Colts got the decisive touchdown, with Uni-Rebels veteran Graham Whyte being dispatched to the bin for dissent in the aftermath.The game was all but gone when Colts iced the game cake at 6 – 4 with the fat lady half way down Cavendish road as the full time siren sounded.Benny Roberts and Troy Clark were in everything and at their scheming best for Colts, whilst Jason Powell and Damian Moar were the pick of an inconsistent Rebels side that will no doubt lift for next Friday’s big game against the undefeated Dodgers.In the 8.10pm game on Field 6 Crushers had a narrow 3 –2 escape over the young CTA Slammers outfit that produced a more settled display in their second competition game of the season. Crushers needed to call on all their experience to keep the Caboolture boys at bay.Down 2 – 1 at half time, an intercept ‘meatie’ by Jay Latumanhina kept Crushers in the contest.The Premiers had to fight all the way before eventually nailing down the coffin on the Slammers combination two minutes before full time.‘The postman’ Chris Farrow, delivered the big play as always, for a 3 – 2 victory to the Crusher Boys.In Round 3 action this coming Friday, The CTA Slammers will feature in an intriguing match up on Field One at 7.20pm against CCU in the match of the round.The young CTA Slammers side will fancy their chances to notch a maiden premiership game victory after their performance against Crushers, and CCU will be keen to atone for their defeat at the hand’s of Dodgers.In a tough one to call, Crushers take on Redcliffe Colts at 6.30pm on field 2 in the early bird- two for one- seat special, and Dodgers and Rebels square off in the nightcap game at 9.00pm on Field 5. In Powerade Isotonic SEQTL Women’s Open action, Premiers Uni-Rebels flexed their muscles in a dominant 6-1 victory over the young Country Club United outfit.The star-studded Rebels side, who by their own admission, had a spluttering start to the season last week in a narrow loss to Sharkies, came out firing to shell shock the CCU girls early.Uni-Rebels and Australian Women’s Open Coach Kerry Norman, was much happier with the completion rates, ball movement, and finishing skills of her team as they cranked into gear and showed just why they are the benchmark team in the competition.Renee Murphy made a welcome return this week, and immediately added great direction to the team along with 2005 SEQTL Player of the Final, Sally Urquhart medallist Kylie Hilder.Qld Open Schoolgirl Jess Shaw continues to step up and play well in Open company, and the mercurial Teena Mc Ilveen donned the cloak of invisibility and glided undetected through the CCU defence at will. The “Mc Daddy” had a fantastic game mixing intelligent hole running and sonic fast feet to stamp her authority on the game. After trailing 5 – 1 at half-time the North side girls regrouped and came back determined to not let the score line blow out like a Bronco in the off-season.CCU’s Qld Open Mixed player Rebecca Tavo led by example and left it all out on the field for her team, and the Tupuhi sisters Toni and Delwyn, gave solid support to restrict Rebels to only one second half touchdown when the full time siren sounded.In the TV game on field 1 at 8.10pm Crushers and Redcliffe Colts shared the points in a thrilling draw that was full of high quality driving, great ball movement, resolute defence and a frenetic ‘bizaro’ finish.Both teams were down important personnel with four key players for Crushers unavailable and Colts without pivotal Youth World Cup representative Nikki Etheridge and the experienced Casey Clark. Despite the missing stars, both teams turned on a great display of power Touch for such an early stage of the season and, like all other teams, have much to look forward to as the Powerade Isotonic SEQTL unfolds.Incredibly, for 36 minutes of the contest there was no score. Then in the last four minutes the two teams traded touchdowns not once, but twice, to settle things at 2-2.The game was end to end, a real battle of attrition. I was calling for the water bottle and I was just watching from the sidelines!Playing at break-neck pace, something had to give, and Colts winger Carolyn Luschwitz found the chink.Coming out from her own end, she seized on a Crusher’s defensive error to scoot 50 metres to score and put Colts up cradling the lead at 1 – 0.Crushers Co-Captains Michelle Gilpin and Alyce Hulbert, refusing to concede defeat, moved the ball cleverly from left to right to NZ Women’s Open Player Anita Kerrigan who expertly drew the defence to give winger Kathrine Moore a narrow passage to the line.At 1-1, with barely a minute and a half on the clock, both coaches were reasoning that a draw was pretty indicative and a fair take on the game.Australian Open Mixed coach Gary Madders famously said to his Country Club United girls in the third of their four grand final victories in 2003 when they were narrowly up with not too much time left on the clock, “The game always has a long way to go” Everyone participating in last night’s game now knows what that means.After a penalty on the score line and some clever interchange of passing, Lauren Potter backed herself, ran at a hole and dived low at the score line to put the Colts girls up 2 –1 with 30 seconds left on the clock.From the restart Crushers Youth World Cup player Bindi Hammett worked a short play with Qld Open Mixed representative and big occasion specialist Nicola Slade.Slade, who had an industrious game, ran an outside line then snapped in spearing between the middles to score the equalizer with not too much time remaining.Colts Coach Craig Morrow was delighted with the focus and application his team mustered in driving out of their own end. Employing a very “Mets centric” rucking ideology, the Colts girls drove with a lot of discipline to earn great field position consistently during the game.Australian Women’s Open player Peta Rogerson was in everything for Colts, causing more headaches for the Crushers defence than a World Cup victory for Socceroo supporters.Lauren Potter, Aleisha Kuhn, and Gemma ‘Bruiser’ Etheridge all stood up for Colts in a really solid season opening. They will build nicely into the season with more training and development of combinations as they go. Crushers, whose defence was a highlight, were best served by experienced new recruit Theresa Anderson who directed traffic well and is making pleasing progress from a knee reconstruction, Kathrine ‘Dooie’ Moore who was solid all over the field, and Captains Gilpin and Hulbert.Round 3 action Friday night features a great match-up at 7.20pm on Field 7.Redcliffe Colts take on Griffith-Sharks who will be fresh after the bye.The “Powerade Power game” in the Women’s Open on field one pits Premiers Uni-Rebels up against top of the table Crushers at 8.10pm.Country Club United have the bye.All teams are building well into the season; expect some engrossing encounters as the best players in South East Queensland do battle in Round 3 of the Powerade Isotonic SEQTL.When in doubt, throw the flick and if you get the chance, Vote for Pedro and your wildest dreams will come true.last_img read more

Egg oral immunotherapy could be safe way of desensitizing children youth with

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Feb 25 2019UNC School of Medicine researcher Edwin Kim, MD, MS, says the results of a multi-year observational study are encouraging for those suffering from egg allergies.After completing up to four years of egg oral immunotherapy (eOIT) treatment, certain participants were able to safely incorporate egg into their diet for five years. This new research was presented by the study’s first author, Edwin Kim, MD, at the annual American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI) conference in San Francisco.”Egg allergy is one of the most common food allergies and usually appears in early childhood. It has significant risk for severe allergic reactions and negatively affects quality of life for children with the allergy,” said Kim, assistant professor of medicine and pediatrics at the UNC School of Medicine and director of the UNC Food Allergy Initiative. “While the allergy does seem to go away with age, it can last into the second decade of life for most people. Any treatment that can allow the introduction of egg into the diet of someone with egg allergy provides nutritional benefits and peace of mind for the patient and their family.”UNC School of Medicine was one of five centers to participate in the study, led by the Consortium of Food Allergy Research (COFAR) and funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The trial began with either eOIT or a placebo for 55 patients aged 5-11 who were allergic to egg. The treatments were randomized – 40 participants received eOIT and 15 received the placebo.The treatments lasted up to four years, during which patients were tested for their sensitivity to egg. Those who were considered desensitized – requiring a higher quantity of egg to cause an allergic reaction – could eat 10 grams, or about two teaspoons, of pure egg without reaction. Desensitized patients then stopped eOIT and were tested for sensitivity again. Those who did not have a reaction were considered sustained unresponsiveness (SU). After completing eOIT, concentrated egg (scrambled, fried or boiled egg) and/or baked egg (eggs incorporated into something like a cake) were recommended to be added into the patients’ diet. For five years following the allergy treatment, patients were asked to report how much egg they ate, in what form they ate it, how often they ate it and how they felt afterward.Related StoriesUnreliable diagnostics for fish allergy testingNovel method can help clinicians identify individuals most in need of PrEPScripps CHAVD wins $129 million NIH grant to advance new HIV vaccine approachAt the end of eOIT, 50 percent of patients were classified with SU, 28 percent of patients were classified as desensitized (without SU) and 22 percent as not desensitized. Of SU-classified patients, 100 percent were able to eat both baked and concentrated egg.Desensitized, not desensitized, and placebo groups had more variable ingestion of baked and concentrated egg and had more chance of symptoms from ingestion.”These results further support the effectiveness of eOIT as a safe way of desensitizing children and youth with egg allergy,” said Kim. “Past research also suggests that eating egg may actually shorten the amount of time a patient has the allergy, so any amount of egg that is incorporated into an allergy patient’s diet is helpful.” Source:http://www.med.unc.edu/last_img read more

Updated Apple system takes on smartphone addiction

first_img An iOS 12 mobile operating system that will power new iPhones unveiled on Wednesday, and be pushed out as an update to prior models, has new features to reduce how much they distract people from the real world.Apple senior vice president of software engineering Craig Federighi said of iOS 12 at a developers conference earlier this year the new system offers “detailed information and tools” to help users and parents keep tabs on device use.A new “Screen Time” tool generates activity reports showing how often people pick up their iPhones or iPads, how long they spend in apps or at websites, and numbers of notifications received.Users will be able to set limits on time spent in apps. Parents will be able to get activity reports from their children’s iPhones or iPads, and impose time limits on apps from games and news to social media and messaging.The operating system will also allow people to designate “down time” when iPhones or iPads can’t be used—perhaps a child’s bedtime or a grown-up’s meditation hour.Activist investor Jana Partners and the California State Teachers’ Retirement System (CalSTRS), which both have stakes in Apple, early this year called on the company to give parents more tools to ensure children are using its devices in ways that aren’t hurting them.The investors reasoned that doing so would pose no threat to Apple, because the company makes the bulk of its money selling devices, not from how much people use them.Apple has been working to ramp up revenue from services and digital content such as music and movies, but most of the cash it takes in comes from iPhone sales.The letter cited a growing body of evidence that excessive smartphone use may be having negative consequences on young people.A study of teachers found the vast majority felt smartphones were a growing distraction at schools, eroding the ability of students to focus in class and a seeming cause of social and emotional difficulties.

Dont Be Confused If This Starfish Makes Your Mouth Water

But until now, the “ravioli” star (also called the cookie star) was a bit of a nobody. Even though scientists have known of the ravioli star for some time, only recently did the creature get a common (non-Latin) name, Christopher Mah, an invertebrate biologist at the Smithsonian Museum at Natural History, told Live Science. Instead, the starfish was known only by its formal scientific name, P. dentatus. [Photos: See the World’s Cutest Sea Creatures] That’s because until now, people rarely had the chance to observe the starfish in its natural habitat. Most of what scientists know about the ravioli star comes from specimens that were already dead, Mah said. Now, with the advent of remotely operated vehicles like NOAA’s Deep Discoverer, which captured rare footage of ravioli stars, everyone has virtual access to these creatures. It was sometime in the last year that Mah began hearing the names “cookie star” and “ravioli star” bouncing around the internet. “It’s just kind of amusing to me,” Mah said, “[The name] just took off so quickly.” The starfish isn’t new or unusual — it has existed at the depths of the ocean for much longer than its moniker. But the way Twitter is interacting with the ravioli star and other marine wonders is completely novel, Mah said. Just the fact that the internet has bred a new name for these creatures is evidence of a new kind of citizen science, he added. That’s a good thing. “Any kind of connection that I think the public has with natural history, with nature is important,” Mah said. As for the ravioli star, its moment in the spotlight is only just beginning. This is an exciting moment for deep-sea creatures like the pasta doppelganger, Mah said. For the first time, scientists have the chance to study how they interact with their environment — what they eat, how they reproduce and how they navigate their underwater world. On the Deep Discoverer’s most recent dive, for instance, the ROV captured another image of a group of ravioli stars ganging up on a sea sponge (a sea creature with no skeleton and a soft, porous body). Until now, scientists knew virtually nothing about this sea star’s biology. This is the Deep Discoverers seventh dive on an expedition called Windows to the Deep.last_img read more
