“I was high in the air, so why not just go ahead and do something?” asked Robinson, the former Louisiana high school standout whose previous rebounding high was six.Dorian Finney-Smith had 19 points on 8-of-10 shooting for the Mavericks, but Harrison Barnes was held to 1 of 7 from 3-point range while scoring 14 points. DeAndre Jordan had a season-low four points and matched his lowest rebounding total this season with 10.TIP-INSKnicks: Damyean Dotson just missed his second double-double of the season, finishing with 11 points and eight rebounds. … Others among the seven double-figure scorers were Enes Kanter (13 points) and Mario Hezonja (11).Mavericks: G Devin Harris was out again with a left hamstring strain. He hasn’t played since the opener. … J.J. Barea matched his season low with two points, attempting just five shots. He equaled Doncic with six assists.MITCHELL’S MODELRobinson’s best game so far came against Jordan, the 6-foot-11 center who extended his Dallas record with his ninth straight double-digit rebound game to start a season. Robinson matched Jordan on the boards and was much more of a factor offensively, going 5 of 6 from the field. “I think DeAndre is a guy that Mitchell looks up to, and really respects,” Knicks coach David Fizdale said. “Obviously there are a lot of similarities there that we’re going to be using DeAndre as a model for Mitchell.”DEFENSE FIRSTAnother versatile game from Doncic, who has been Dallas’ best player in his first two-plus weeks, prompted questions for Carlisle over whether the rookie should have a more prominent role in the offense. Carlisle was thinking about the sixth game out of nine in which the Mavericks have allowed at least 50 percent shooting. “I’m so much more focused on the defense that the questions about the offense, to me, are insignificant,” the coach said. “It’s become too commonplace. That’s not going to get it, and I know we can do better.”UP NEXT Both teams play Washington. The Knicks are at the Wizards on Sunday, and the Mavericks get them at home Tuesday after a three-day break.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Allen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

A 9-year-old Queens girl, whose bruised, naked body was found in a bathtub strangled by her wicked stepmom, Guyanese Arjun Samdhi Pardas; the New York Daily quoted Police sources as saying.Ashdeep Kaur, 9, was found strangled to death Friday (NY Daily photo)The little girl was found dead in the bathtub of their home on Friday evening (NY Daily photo)Arjun Pardas is walked out of the 102nd Police Precinct Stationhouse last Saturday after she was charged with murder (NY Daily photo)Pardas was charged on Saturday with killing Ashdeep Kaur in the bathroom of their Richmond Hill home, according to sources.Detectives grilled the 55-year-old stepmother at the 102nd Precinct Stationhouse for hours, after finding her hiding at a friend’s home.A haggard Pardas was walked out of the precinct around 19:00h wearing a white Tyvek suit. A small woman, she grimaced when asked if she killed Ashdeep and appeared to start crying as she was placed in the Police car.“She was not treating her really good,” said Ashdeep’s uncle, Manjinder Singh. “The girl told me she got beat up by her. Twice she told me she grabbed her and threw her on the bed. I was not thinking she would kill her.”Ashdeep’s grief-stricken dad, Sukhjinder Singh, was seen being helped out of the Stationhouse by two relatives at about 11:00h on Saturday. The stone-faced father didn’t say a word.The girl emigrated from India, where she lived with her mother, and joined him in Queens three months ago.“Her father wanted her to be here, to stay in US,” Manjinder Singh said. “There are better schools over here. Everything is good. She was doing good, learning English.”But the father’s dream of a better life for his little girl turned into a nightmare on Friday.Relatives said Ashdeep feared her stepmother, who is from Guyana, and said the woman had hit the girl. They hadn’t thought the punishments would rise to that level of abuse.According to relatives, on the day of the murder, a woman who shares part of the 112th St home —including the bathroom— told Ashdeep’s dad that Pardas and his daughter had gone into the bathroom together.The stepmother emerged alone and before leaving the house with her two grandchildren, told the housemate that the girl was still inside taking a shower.When the housemate went to use the bathroom about 6pm she discovered the girl’s lifeless body in the bathtub. There was no water in the tub.“The stepmother did whatever she did with her in the house,” another relative said. “The dead body was in the bathroom, and she ran away.”Two children who were found with Pardas when she was arrested were put in the care of the city’s child protective services, WCBS-TV reported.A neighbour said Pardas had lived on the street for years and didn’t get along with her family.“I never knew she was capable of doing that,” the neighbour said. “That’s why it’s such a shock.”An autopsy was scheduled to determine how Ashdeep died.Manjinder Singh was beside himself with grief and struggling with regret that he didn’t do more to protect his niece.“She had been living with us two or three days, sleeping over,” he said, his voice cracking. “I shouldn’t have dropped her off. Her father said drop her home, and the second day, she’s dead.”
0Shares0000Juventus’ goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon saves a penalty kick during the Italian Serie A football match against Cagliari on August 19, 2017 © AFP / Marco BERTORELLOMILAN, Italy, Aug 19 – Fabio Maresca became the first referee in Serie A to use VAR technology to award a penalty on Saturday, only to see veteran Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon rescue the hosts.Maresca initially waved play on after Cagliari striker Duje Cop came down under a challenge from Brazilian winger Alex Sandro in the 37th minute in Turin. But doubts persisted, and Maresca opted to consult the VAR before then pointing to the penalty spot — registering the first time a penalty has been awarded in Serie A after consultation with the video assistant referee.Much to Juve’s relief, Buffon guessed right and blocked Diego Farias’s spot-kick, leaving the six-time defending champions 2-0 up at half-time after goals from Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala.The International Football Association Board (IFAB), which governs the laws of the game, authorised VAR to be used on an experimental basis in March 2016.It can only be used to decide whether or not to award a goal or a penalty, for straight red cards and in cases of mistaken player identity.FIFA president Gianni Infantino said in April that VAR technology would be used at the 2018 World Cup in Russia after “very positive feedback” following its use at the Confederations Cup.He said: “Video assistant refereeing is the future of modern football.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
“When you look at the facts in the Portugal game, it’s totally unfair.“For the goal we conceded, there was an obvious foul by (defender) Pepe at the front post. Why did (the referee) not see it?” Renard told reporters in Kaliningrad ahead of Monday’s encounter.“Then there was a handball by Pepe, exactly the same as the one (that was given as a penalty) for Australia” in the Socceroos’ Group C match against Denmark.Morocco attacked Portugal relentlessly in the second half in Moscow after Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring with an early header.“For me it’s a total injustice, especially because of the quality showed by my players during the game. You mustn’t forget we were playing the European champions.“It’s unfair that we’re already eliminated but we have to accept reality.”Goalkeeper Munir al-Kajoui agreed that the team had been unlucky in their two games so far.“When we arrived in Russia the coach told us about VAR and we had to be aware of this in key moments,” he said. “But in our case it’s been decisive and it’s basically thrown us out of the tournament.“We are talking about a couple of moments that really hurt us.”Munir, who was born in the Spanish North African enclave of Melilla, plays his club football in Spain, and said he expects a tough test against the 2010 winners in Kaliningrad.“Spain have great stars but honestly none inspire fear in me,” said the Numancia stopper.“Obviously, it’s an important match for us, for our honour and our pride and to try to give some joy to our fans. They deserve it.”Frenchman Renard, who once managed Cambridge United in England’s fourth tier, said his team would be motivated for the game despite having nothing to play for.“My job is to pose Spain problems and make the Moroccan people proud,” he said.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Morocco coach Herve Renard says his team are victims of ‘total injustice’ © AFP / Patrick HERTZOGKALINIGRAD, Russian Federation, Jun 24 – Morocco coach Herve Renard Sunday said his team had been victim to a “total injustice” in becoming the first nation knocked out of the World Cup before their final Group B clash with Spain.Morocco were eliminated after losing 1-0 to Portugal in Moscow after a 95th-minute own goal saw them lose to Iran by the same scoreline in their opener.

Letterkenny General HospitalAN illegal immigrant who should have left Ireland in 2010 has appeared in court on a number of charges.The 34-year-old, originally from Kenya, was arrested at Letterkenny General Hospital on Wednesday night, the town’s District Court was told. She faces a number of charges of loitering and failing to give correct details to Gardaí.She is also charged with failing to have documentation allowing her to stay in the Republic of Ireland. She appears, the court was told, to have two different names.The court heard that nursing staff at the hospital called Gardaí on Wednesday night.Her solicitor Patsy Gallagher said he was unable to get proper instructions from his client due to her medical condition.“Her instructions were limited; she denies all knowledge of the offences and denies being at Letterkenny hospital last night,” said Mr Gallagher.“There has been a medical intervention from a local GP who has made certain observations.”The woman stood and sat down on a number of occasions during the hearing as she was flanked by two Gardaí.Judge Paul Kelly ordered that the woman be taken into the care of the Central Mental Hospital in Dublin and ordered a medical inquiry regarding her fitness to understand the charges.He adjourned the case for mention on November 25.ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT ARRESTED AT LETTERKENNY HOSPITAL ‘SHOULD HAVE LEFT IRELAND IN 2010’ was last modified: November 22nd, 2013 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:arrestillegal immigrantKenyaletterkenny hospital
A babysitter managed to crack two different safes belonging to her employers and stole a total of €8,000.Marian Rodgers got a job as a residential childminder for a family in Letterkenny after losing her job in the insurance business.Rodgers, 25, owed money on a car loan which she could not pay and began to steal from the safe of her new employer Sarah McDevitt. Detective Garda Alfie McHale told Letterkenny District Court that he investigated claims that amounts between €400 and €2,500 had been taken from the safe at Ms McDevitt’s home in Letterkenny between August 2011 and March, 2012.He told the court that when money went missing from the safe initially, it had ben replaced with a new safe but that too was breached by the thief.Det. Garda McHale said he later saw the accused in the Oldtown area of Letterkenny and arrested her.A search of her car found items that included an envelope with the victim’s name on it and eleven used AIB banking bags and €394.45 in coins.Solicitor Michael Gillespie said the sum had now been repaid in full and she was fully co-operative with Gardai at all times.Rodgers, from Annagry East, moved to Lettekenny five years ago to work in the insurance business and secured a car loan at that time. Within a year she had lost her job and ended up in a “financial mess” and turned to money-lenders in an effort to keep her car.It was then she started child minding and became a residential child minder for Ms McDevitt.It was while in a “desperate state” she took the money as she had no one to confide in with her problems within her own family.She suffered acute anxiety and depression at the time and had a “unrealistic belief she could sort this out.”He added she was ashamed of her actions and wishes to apologise to the McDevitt family. She is now working in a shop and earning just over €200 a week.Judge Paul Kelly said there was a series of incidents over a period of seven to eight months during which a considerable degree of trust had been shown by the injured party.Judge Kelly convicted Rodgers on one count of theft, fined her €500 and took all other charges into consideration.BABYSITTER CRACKED TWO SAFES AND STOLE €8,000 FROM FAMILY was last modified: January 29th, 2013 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:Annagry EastchildminderDetective Garda Alfie McHaleinsurance businessJudge Paul KellyMarian RodgerssafeSarah McDevittstole
“My intention this year is to be able to play both ends of the floor,” Afflalo said. “Take on a huge load at both ends of the floor, offensively and defensively. I had to get in the best shape so I could do those things to the best of my ability.” The 6-foot-5 Afflalo averaged 10.8 points per game last season, but often deferred offensively to Thompson, who scored a team-leading 18.4 points per game, or point guard Jordan Farmar. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Afflalo said his role played a part, but so did the energy he expended on the defensive end. “I’m a scorer. That’s my instinct,” said Afflalo, who shot 44.2 percent from the field. “I’ve always been a scorer, but that really wasn’t my job to do those types of things last year. I’ve waited my time, and I’ve got a different role than last year.” Another reason Afflalo’s role might change is the return of guard Cedric Bozeman, who was UCLA’s best defensive player two years ago. Bozeman sat out 2004-05 with a knee injury. “(Afflalo) definitely has the mentality,” Bozeman said. “He just has to go out there and do it.” Farmar’s future: There’s a buzz around Westwood that Farmar, a sophomore, will jump to the NBA after this season, but he shot that down. After developing into UCLA’s best defensive player last season, sophomore guard Arron Afflalo wants to show a more well-rounded game. Afflalo said he is in better shape, and with the scoring void created by Dijon Thompson’s exit, he is ready to take on that role. “There’s no truth to it yet,” said Farmar, last season’s Pac-10 freshman of the year. “Right now, I’m just trying to lead this team and win games. I’m planning on playing (at UCLA) as long as I have to, as long as it works out. “People come out and you hear rumors, but that’s part of the job. I hear stuff about me on campus all the time. There’s no truth to it now. I’m trying to get better from day-to-day, trying to mature as a person as well as a basketball player. That’s what college is for.” Injury update: Bruins coach Ben Howland said freshman power forward Alfred Aboya could return to practice Nov. 9, and perhaps play in the season opener six days later against New Mexico State in the first round of the preseason NIT. Aboya underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Oct. 12. Also, center Michael Fey is still unable to practice because of a groin strain, and it appears unlikely he will be ready for UCLA’s first exhibition game, Nov. 4 against Carleton. Hollins’ health: Bruins center Ryan Hollins said his injured knee was never 100 percent last season, but that is no longer the case, and he plans on making a bigger impact after being relegated to sporadic bench play. “It’s about time. I feel like me again,” Hollins said. “It was pretty sore last year.” Hollins also said he nearly declared for the NBA Draft – not with the intention of staying in it, but so he could go to the Chicago pre-draft camp and get seen by scouts before returning to UCLA for his senior season. “They had a record number of guys who put their name (in the NBA Draft), so it was pretty tough and I probably wasn’t going to get a chance to get in (the camp),” Hollins said. “I wanted to get that exposure, get that edge back. It was just to show I’m back, and I can still play.” Brian Dohn, (818) 713-3607 firstname.lastname@example.org 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

This morning’s interment includes the “cremains” of those from 2002. The Los Angeles County morgue holds the ashes in small boxes on shelves for three years. Each year in December, the ashes that reach the three year mark are collected and interred together. Some of the bodies come from the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office. Most are from the Los Angeles County morgue. “There used to be more than 1,600,” cremains in a year, said Craig Harvey, spokesman for the Department of Coroners. “In some years, we’ve had more than 2,000.” The burial will be held at 10 a.m. today at the Los Angeles County Crematory Grounds, 3301 E. 1st Street, Los Angeles. Access to the grounds is through Evergreen Cemetery and Crematory at 204 N. Evergreen Avenue, Los Angeles. In a downtown cemetery where bronze grave markers are etched with numbers instead of names, the ashes of more than 1,600 of Los Angeles County’s unknown and unclaimed will be buried together today at a traditional service held annually since 1925. The brief ceremony includes the reading of a few prayers before the ashes are mixed and placed in a communal grave. A simple bronze marker containing only the year they died, in this case 2002, is then placed on top to mark the site. For the last 80 years, the county’s Department of Health Services has taken on the duty of burying some 300,000 people who could not be identified or claimed and in some cases, whose families cannot afford to bury them. “Lord, we ask you to welcome home with open arms (these) 1,619 souls, many of whom their identities are known only to you,” Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe said Tuesday during a regular board meeting.
