The only other Blazer with one was Nic Batum.

The game against the Thunder was the first of a five-game homestand.“You put yourself in that type of position, it comes down to — like I always say — you’ve got to be perfect. We needed to probably make every shot, get every stop,” Lillard said. “We just came up short. We had plenty of opportunity.”George got off to a fast start with 13 points in the opening quarter, including a pair of free throws that pulled the Thunder into a 28-all tie.The Blazers went up 47-39 after Jake Layman’s 3-pointer, and extended the lead to 58-47 after Maurice Harkless’ 3.Jusuf Nurkic had 16 first-half points and Portland went into the break with a 62-57 lead.The Thunder closed within 80-78 on Steven Adams’ layup then took an 83-82 lead on George’s 3-pointer.

Liverpool players building in confidence, says Rodgers, as Reds prepare for pivotal month

first_imgBrendan Rodgers can feel the confidence flooding back into his Liverpool team but has warned his players the next month will prove pivotal to their season.The Reds have bounced back from three successive defeats in the Premier League by securing back-to-back wins for the first time in the campaign, to move them to within just six points of third-placed Southampton.Rodgers is pleased with the character his players have shown in recent weeks, but he is not getting carried away and knows they need a successful month, which starts at home to Sunderland on Saturday before meetings with Manchester United and Arsenal, to ensure they are firmly in the hunt for a Champions League qualification spot.“We have a bit of momentum now in terms of results, which breeds confidence in the team and releases what might feel like a little bit of pressure,” he said.“We still have a lot of work to do. There is a long road for us, but we are edging our way there.“If we get to the halfway point in January and be there or thereabouts I will be pleased with that, considering the start we had in the first 12 games.“After Crystal Palace (their third successive league defeat last month) it was a real difficult moment.“The run of games up till that in terms of results and performances just weren’t quite there, but the reaction and mentality the players have shown since that says a lot about their character and the determination to do well.“We are not getting carried away with three (including the Champions League draw against Ludogorets) good performances and results. We just have to keep taking that confidence forward into the next game.” 1 Brendan Rodgers last_img read more

ARDARA SETS THE SCENE AS HUNDREDS OF CYCLISTS ARRIVE FOR RAS DHUN NA nGALL

first_imgThe small heritage town of Ardara hardly knew what hit it yesterday afternoon as car after car bearing top of the range bikes began to descend upon the town.The Nesbitt Arms Hotel became the hub for these cyclists as they signed on for the event most had been looking forward to all year, namely the Rás Dhun na nGall, a stage race specifically for A2 and A3 riders.A great many A4 riders have ridden out of their skins this year in order to line up in this event while others just avoided gaining those final points which would see them ineligible for the race. The three day stage race which is promoted by the Four Masters Cycling Club and generously supported by the Nesbitt Arms Hotel and the Ardara Traders, began this evening with a short race taking in the Frosses, Dunkineely and Bruckless before finally arriving back to finish in Ardara main street just before 9.00pm.Although a short stage it is always competitive as riders try to stamp their mark on the event from the word go. This year was no different and numerous attacks occurred. By the time the riders had raced over the first King of the Hills some 8.8 miles into the evenings’ race over forty riders had already been dropped from the bunch.The race speed started at 25mph and never let up. Marcel Kock of the Belgian Project McCall Foundation team was one of the first riders to try and stamp his mark on the race but was reeled in . Stephen Harkens of Team Madigan took over at the form but Craig McAuley of the Cycling Ulster Slane Cycles team kept chasing hard sand soon joined him along with a number of other riders. The race continued to fragment as riders broke away, some chasing the KOH points.Coming back into Ardara a small group got away and sprinted for the line. Danny Bruten of the NRPT Standard Life-Radii got the jump on Mark Downey of Cycling Ulster Slane Cycles team.The Cycling Ulster Slane Cycles team also lifted the Kong of the Mountains jersey with a superb effort by Craig McAuley.Ciara Horne of Lakeland CC took first woman with Danny Bruten leading the junior classification. However going into tomorrow mornings Time Trial stage Bruten will be wearing the first Yellow Jersey of this year’s race with Mark Downey wearing the Junior Jersey.Ras Dhun na nGallStage One Results

Why Uganda could still qualify this weekend even with a loss to Cape Verde

first_img Tags: 2019 AFCON QualifiersCape VerdeLesothoTanzaniatopUganda Cranes Uganda currently has 10 points in Group L2019 AFCON Qualifiers-Group LUganda vs Cape VerdeMandela National Stadium, NambooleSaturday, 17-11-2018 @04:00pmKAMPALA – It is all excitement around the Country as Uganda closes in on a second consecutive appearance at Africa’s football showpiece-African Cup of nations.After breaking a 39-year-old jinx and qualifying for the 2017 edition in Gabon, the Uganda Cranes find themselves only a point away from securing a ticket that will guarantee their participation at the 2019 finals in Cameroon.Despite the fact that everyone wants the qualification to be sealed this weekend with either a victory or draw against Cape Verde, the Pearl of Africa can still make it to Cameroon despite defeat.This all comes about due to the change in rules back in 2017 when CAF announced  that the final tournament in Cameroon had been expanded from 16 to 24 teams. Under the new format, the group winners and runners-up would qualify from all other groups apart from Group B which features the hosts-Cameroon.How Uganda can still qualify this weekend even with a loss to Cape Verde on Saturday:Uganda currently sit on top of Group L with 10 points, five ahead of second-placed Tanzania. Cape Verde are third with four will Lesotho sit bottom of the pile on two points. All that side, with two games to play for all four nations.–If Cape Verde defeats Uganda at Namboole, the Blue Sharks move to 7 points while Uganda remains on 10. Uganda will however qualify if Tanzania fails to beat Lesotho in Maseru.A draw in the game in Lesotho means that second-placed Tanzania moves to six points while the host move to three and with one match day to play, none of them would be in position to catch Uganda.–If Lesotho beats Tanzania, the hosts move to five points level with Tanzania and with one game to play meaning that none again would be able to catch Uganda who would still be on 10 points provided they lose to Cape Verde.Other Ways Uganda Qualifies for the AFCON tournament in Cameroon.–A draw at home to Cape Verde would automatically mean that none of Saturday’s opponents or Lesotho can catch the Cranes after all games are played hence qualification. The only thing that would be there to play for would be who tops the group between Uganda and Tanzania.–If Uganda fails to beat Cape Verde and Tanzania defeats Lesotho, they would still qualify on the last day just by avoiding defeat in Dar es Salam.I am sure qualification would not feel any sweeter with a loss but after all, the Cranes would still have achieved their target in the first place.However, Uganda can still fail to qualify if they loose their last two games and both Cape Verde and Tanzania win theirs.The other Group L game:-Lesotho vs Tanzania, Sunday-18-11-2018 @05:00pmComments last_img read more

Remembering what Gandhi gave South Africa, a century later

first_img“First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win,” Mahatma Gandhi. (Image: Sonia Gandhi) • Prema Naidoo Chief Whip Johannesburg City Council +27 11 407 7479 preman@joburg.org.za • Gandhi’s memory lingers in South Africa • A house of peace and simplicity • India and South Africa: 150 years of history • India-Africa trade on the up • India and South Africa growing together Prema Naidoo “You are descendants of Ishmael and therefore from your very birth bound to slave for the descendants of Esau. As the descendants of Esau we cannot admit you to rights placing you on equality with ourselves. You must rest content with what rights we grant you.” – President Paul Kruger, on the occasion of receiving a delegation of Indian traders upset with the Transvaal’s racial policy.One hundred years ago this year – in June 1914 – Mohandas Gandhi left South Africa for India. He had arrived an awkward shy young barrister and found in South Africa, and the Indian community’s fight for equality, the voice and path that changed the world. “You gave us Mohandas; we returned him to you as Mahatma.” – President Nelson Mandela in a speech in India.The “disease of colour prejudice” as Gandhi called it, was brought home to him during a train journey to Johannesburg in 1893. Travelling on a first class ticket in a compartment, the young barrister was manhandled off the train in Pietermaritzburg after a white traveller complained about his presence.This incident was the defining moment in his life. The moment he went from being a timid newly graduated barrister to becoming the thin older man of legend, in a homespun dhoti and shawl leading India towards independence from Britain.Standing on the platform, his anger rising, he went from annoyance to indignation to making a life-changing decision. Forgiveness, as he would later say, was not his to give. In that moment he was powerless but he could act to change his world, and the world. “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” Mahatma Gandhi (Image: Ramachandra Guha)  “You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.” ― Mahatma GandhiSatyagraha, the philosophy born out of that incident, means soul force and was not a weapon for the weak. It meant meeting force with non-violent resistance. Satya – truth – and agraha – firmness – won Gandhi thousands of supporters. Organised through the Natal Indian Congress his campaign of civil disobedience filled the prisons with thousands of supporters; in turn their sacrifice won him thousands more.He harnessed this wilful non-violent disobedience to protest laws restricting Indians from participating in the economy, invalidating their customary marriages and the restriction of free movement. The point of the campaign, for Gandhi, was not to break the law but to fill the prisons. Civil disobedience, arrest and imprisonment were meant to attract the attention of the authorities; to hold up a mirror to their unjust and uncivilised laws.For Gandhi, Satyagraha was a powerful because it required strength to not retaliate violently while being beaten. He suggested, and repeated often, that his campaign was that of a more powerful moral force battling against the weakness of unjust laws. He wrote later in life: “If we are satyagrahis and offer Satyagraha, believing us to be strong, two clear consequences result from it. Fostering the idea of strength, we grow stronger and stronger every day. With the increase in our strength, our Satyagraha too becomes more effective and we would never be casting about for an opportunity to give it up.”By 1914, when Gandhi left South Africa for India, he had managed to wrest concessions from President Louis Botha and his government. The four-year-old Union government repealed the £3 Tax; customary Indian marriages were recognised (women of Indian descent also protested vocally against these restrictions); some provisions of the Immigration Restriction Act were repealed; and the Black Act – the Transvaal Asiatic Law that required every Indian male to register and carry an ID certificate – was abolished. “Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.” ― Mahatma GandhiThe Natal Indian Congress (NIC) was the first organised resistance movement in South Africa, and it can be argued the NIC and its passive resistance campaign influenced the founders of the African National Congress that formed in Bloemfontein in 1912.The Bambatha Rebellion of 1906 reinforced the idea that any armed resistance would be met with the full might of the authorities. The leaders who gathered in Bloemfontein in 1912 to found the ANC understood this lesson and found a second path in Gandhi’s Satyagraha campaign.The strongest sign of Gandhi’s influence on South African resistance politics can be found in the 1952 Defiance Campaign. The intensity of the campaign against unjust pass laws and curfews for Africans was a sign of the growing frustration of South Africa’s majority. The 8 000 volunteers, members of the ANC, South African Indian Congress and the Coloured People’s Congress were, in the end, unsuccessful, but it showed the way forward to a unified South Africa. “You may never know what results come of your actions, but if you do nothing, there will be no results.” ― Mahatma Gandhi “The future depends on what you do today.” Mahatma Gandhi (Image: Nagarjun Kandukuru) Gandhi never returned to South Africa after he left in 2014. The legacy he bequeathed the country can be seen in the work of the many he influenced. The families and children of his closest confidants – Thambi Naidoo, Parsi Rustomji and Ahmed Cachalia – were all active in the struggle for a non-racial, democratic South Africa.South Africa played a pivotal role in shaping who Gandhi became; it moulded his political views and was the furnace that formed the philosophy that changed the world. His example of determined, non-violent struggle and the idea that defending the dignity of all makes for a better world remains relevant today.A hundred years ago a great man left our shores but we must remain committed to the lessons of life that he bequeathed to us all. “It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there’ll be any fruit. But that doesn’t mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.” ― Mahatma Gandhilast_img read more
