first_imgReal Madrid great Alfredo Di Stefano. Photo: Reuters.Real Madrid great Alfredo Di Stefano was in a coma and in serious condition following a heart attack on Saturday.After being resuscitated on a Madrid street by paramedics, the 88-year-old Di Stefano was taken to Madrid’s Gregorio Maranon Hospital where he remains in coma.The hospital medical report said Di Stefano was “stable” but “serious.” It said he has been sedated, received a tracheal intubation, and was on mechanical ventilation.A spokeswoman for Madrid’s emergency service Samur told The Associated Press that an ambulance was called to attend Di Stefano at Juan Ramon Jimenez street, just north of the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, at 5 pm. She spoke on condition of anonymity because of department policy preventing her from being identified by name.She said paramedics found Di Stefano’s heart had stopped beating and he wasn’t breathing, but they managed to resuscitate him after 18 minutes.Dubbed “La Saeta Rubia” (The Blond Arrow) for his speed, Di Stefano is a former Argentina forward who helped Madrid win five straight European Champions Cups from 1956-60, and eight Spanish league titles. He was voted European player of the year in 1957 and ’59.He retired at the age of 40 in 1966, ending a 22-year playing career.He turned 88 on Friday.Madrid appointed Di Stefano honorary president in 2000 and named its new training complex after him six years later, with a statue erected in his honor in 2008.Former Madrid forward Gonzalo Higuain sent his wishes that Di Stefano recovers from the World Cup in Brazil after he scored to give Argentina a 1-0 victory over Belgium in the quarterfinals.advertisement”It is not good news for football, for us, for those who know him, those who have been close with Alfredo,” said Higuain. “Alfredo was always very close with me. I have a great respect and I feel for him and I send him my greetings from here. And I hope that he will recover.”Madrid club president Florentino Perez visited Di Stefano at the hospital.A diabetic, Di Stefano underwent a quadruple aorta-coronary bypass with a pacemaker implanted in December 2005 after suffering a myocardial infarction. He has been hospitalized several times in recent years to monitor his heart condition.last_img read more

first_imgOfficers from across the various ministries, agencies and departments of Government are now participating in a seven-day Energy Conservation and Efficiency Training Programme, which is aimed at making the public sector a model for the rest of the society in energy management. In his remarks at the opening ceremony in Kingston, today (November 12), Principal Director (Energy) in the Ministry of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining, Fitzroy Vidal, emphasised that, “Jamaica depends on us…Jamaica anxiously seeks an energy solution,” noting that energy conservation and efficiency is a key element in the public sector transformation process. He argued that while Jamaica is on track to transform the energy landscape, the country’s energy bill is still costly, although fuel importation is trending downwards. “This imperative behoves us to take ownership of the problem and seek to play our part,” Mr. Vidal said. The training programme is designed for officers within the Government, who are responsible for energy management, as well as other professionals in the public sector who have direct responsibility for managing energy use as a part of their job functions. This is the third such training programme for 2012, at the end of which some 160 persons throughout the public sector are expected to benefit.      The programme will examine: the importance of energy conservation to national development; the main elements of the national energy policy; the core elements of Jamaica’s National Energy Conservation and Efficiency Policy 2009-2030; the impact that energy conservation and efficiency can have on the performance of ministries and agencies; and the officers’ role in managing the government’s energy assets and resources. The participants will also have the opportunity to evaluate their ministry’s or department’s energy use and effectively monitor and take the necessary corrective action; conduct and prepare terms of reference for the conduct of an energy audit for a ministry/department/agency; prepare an energy conservation plan; and appreciate the role that officers in ministries, agencies and departments play in reducing overall government expenditure.last_img read more

Our projections surmise that it will ultimately take about 44 victories to earn a spot in the Western Conference playoffs. In order to reach that win total, the Lakers would need to finish 14-6 against the NBA’s 10th-toughest remaining schedule — one that has 10 home games and 10 road ones. They still have to play the Denver Nuggets, Boston Celtics, Bucks again, Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder, among others.By contrast, the indestructible Spurs need to go only 10-9 to finish with 44 wins. They have an easier-than-average slate the rest of the way, with 11 of their last 19 games in San Antonio. The Clippers have it even better, needing a 9-9 finish to get to 44 victories, with 12 of their last 18 contests at home. (The young, fun Sacramento Kings are positioned in about the same spot as the Lakers in the standings, needing a 13-7 finish to reach 44 wins. But their remaining schedule is the third-easiest in the NBA, giving them some hope in an uphill battle.)James has faced late-season pressure to lift his team out of the doldrums each of the past few seasons. But this scenario with the Lakers stands apart, both because of how much time he missed with injury (one that now looks as if it will cost the team a playoff spot), and because of how the young supporting cast struggled to hold the rope during his absence, going 6-11. It’s one thing to coast into the postseason, the way James’s Miami and Cleveland clubs often did. But James himself hasn’t missed the playoffs in 14 years, not since the 2004-05 season.If there’s a bright side, it’s that the Lakers finally look engaged. They held Antetokounmpo to just 16 points, one of his lowest-scoring outputs in a dominant season. Youngster Brandon Ingram has showcased his scoring ability lately and was unstoppable Friday, finishing with 31 points.But the time to celebrate moral victories for this team has run out, unfortunately. A sixth-straight season of missing the playoffs — especially now, after adding one of the league’s all-time greats — would be disastrous. And after Friday’s loss, the Lakers are staring directly at that possibility. But a number of realities are setting in now. The Lakers are 4 games behind the Los Angeles Clippers for the seventh seed and 3.5 games back of the San Antonio Spurs, who own the head-to-head tiebreaker (meaning their lead is more like 4 games, since the Lakers would miss out on the postseason if they were to finish with the same record as San Antonio). Perhaps the most disheartening thing, aside from having a lot of ground to make up, is the fact that the other teams vying for the last two spots have much easier remaining schedules. UPDATE (March 3, 2019, 9:52 a.m.): The Lakers lost to the Suns on Saturday night, and have now hit a new low point, with only an 8 percent chance of making the playoffs. Barring a miracle turnaround, expect more new low points to come. On the one hand, the Los Angeles Lakers’ loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night wasn’t the most surprising thing. After all, the Bucks — who staged a late run to earn the victory in Los Angeles — own the NBA’s best record and have a leading MVP candidate in Giannis Antetokounmpo.On the other hand, the Lakers surrendering a 15-2 run — and the lead — over the final three minutes of play may have put the team’s back against the wall in an entirely new way.With the defeat, LeBron James and the Lakers find themselves staring at just a 14 percent playoff probability in FiveThirtyEight’s NBA projection model, the lowest mark they’ve had all season, and a damning scenario given that there are only 20 games left in the campaign. That 14 percent figure is an enormous drop-off from even a week ago, when the club held 25 percent odds to get in. (Three weeks ago, the Lakers’ number was 41 percent.) read more

first_imgChelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri has written off the chances of his team catching up with Manchester City despite their 2-0 win.Goals from N’Golo Kante and David Luiz ensured Chelsea’s win and ended the Cityzens 21-match unbeaten run in the league.Sarri, however, claimed that Chelsea are still behind City in the pecking order.The Italian disclosed to BelfastTelegraph: “I’m happy for the win because it’s difficult to win against Guardiola’s team.

We won today, but we have to say we were a bit lucky in the first 25 minutes, because they could score.”Guardiola, whose side sit one point behind Liverpool, was thrilled with the way his players played, despite the result and the first loss of the campaign.The City boss said: “We’re not here to be invincibles, or to be unbeaten, we’re here to try to be champions.“It doesn’t matter.

first_imgThe coalition hopes to open its doors officially in January. The idea is for the coalition to be that first step outside of prison doors, a one-stop shop for anything someone might need to get a foothold in their community, from parenting classes to dental care. The coalition has held community meetings on the central peninsula, Homer, Seward and Ninilchik to find out where those gaps are in services. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Peninsula Community Health Services is working to open the reentry coalition program on the Kenai Peninsula this month, in order to provide services for those re-entering the community without a support system following incarceration. The Kenai Peninsula Reentry Coalition is a nonprofit agency tasked with developing plans and finding the gaps in services in order to reduce recidivism in the local community. Wall: “Our goal is to help with not only their health, but the quality of their health.” The coalition won’t directly be providing these services, but it will  potentially streamline what’s available based on the individuals needs and what is available. Peninsula Community Health Services CEO Al Wall, spoke at the KPEDD Industry Outlook Forum, about the re-entry coalition program on the Kenai Peninsula, and the need for drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs: “Heroin is easier and cheaper to access on the Kenai than alcohol.”last_img read more
