Harvey, Mets Rock Marlins, 7-6

first_imgNEW YORK — For the second day in a row, the Miami Marlins fought back only to fall short. That was the closest thing to a positive development during their lost weekend in New York.Matt Harvey won his third straight start to begin his comeback season and the banged-up Mets, despite losing two important players to injuries, held off Miami 7-6 on April 19 for their eighth consecutive victory.It marked the first time the Marlins were swept by their NL East rivals in a four-game series.“I’m happy and pleased with the way our offense kept battling,” Miami Manager Mike Redmond said. “But at the end of the day, you can’t win at the big league level if your starter is going three innings.”After the Marlins (3-10) trimmed a six-run deficit to one, Jeurys Familia retired Christian Yelich and Giancarlo Stanton on grounders with a runner at second for his sixth save.Yelich was 0-for-5 and struck out seven times in the final two games of the series.“Trying to remember a time where I’ve felt this terrible up there but I really can’t. I don’t know what’s going on,” he said. “I need to be better. The team needs me to be better and you have to just own it. I’ll be better and it will click.”Ruben Tejada hit a three-run double off Miami starter Tom Koehler, and Travis d’Arnaud singled twice in New York’s seven-run fourth.“That’s the second time this year that we’ve given up seven runs in an inning. It’s tough to win ballgames like that,” Redmond said. “Needed a deep start out of Tommy, and it was looking good there for three innings and then it just snowballed on him.”The first three innings could not have gone any better for Koehler (1-2). Pitching close to home with family and friends in the stands, he retired his first nine batters and even singled off Harvey.The fourth inning could not have gone much worse.Koehler loaded the bases with none out and gave up RBI singles to Daniel Murphy and Juan Lagares. Kirk Nieuwenhuis drew a four-pitch walk to force in another run before Tejada, the No. 8 batter, drove a bases-clearing double to deep left-center.“Extremely disappointing, just hanging the bullpen out to dry,” Koehler said.The Mets made it 7-1 with d’Arnaud’s run-scoring single off Sam Dyson. New York sent 12 hitters to the plate in its biggest inning since a seven-run seventh against Arizona on July 2, 2013.“We’ve got to get the pitching straightened out and get these guys deeper into games to give us opportunities,” Redmond said.It was a costly win for the Mets, who lost d’Arnaud to a broken right hand and reliever Jerry Blevins to a fractured left forearm. Blevins took a line drive off his throwing arm, and d’Arnaud was hit by a pitch.“Not a good day,” manager Terry Collins said.Already missing captain David Wright (hamstring) and right-hander Zack Wheeler (elbow surgery), the Mets matched the best start in franchise history at 10-3.They won their first seven home games for the first time and completed their first four-game sweep since July 2011 in Cincinnati.The winning streak is the club’s longest since an eight-game run in June 2010. New York also opened 10-3 in 1986 and 2006 — and won division titles both times.Harvey (3-0) has been sick lately but said he didn’t want to give up a start. Handed a 7-1 lead, he tired and was chased with none out in the seventh.The ace right-hander, coming off Tommy John surgery that sidelined him last season, yielded four runs and eight hits. But he threw 63 of 84 pitches for strikes while whiffing seven and walking none. He has struck out 24 and issued one free pass.“It was a battle,” Harvey said. “I think I kind of ran out of gas.”(MIKE FITZPATRICK, AP Baseball Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

No privatisation of Rlys Goyal assures Opposition

first_imgNew Delhi: Rejecting the opposition’s allegation that the government is working to privatise the national transporter, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal Friday asserted there is “no question” of privatisation, but said the ministry will invite investments for new technology, lines and projects in the national interest.Replying in the Lok Sabha to the discussion on Demands for Grants of the railways, Goyal reeled out figures to claim that the Narendra Modi government has performed much better in boosting both infrastructure and safety parameters of the national transporter as compared to the UPA era. Also Read – Squadrons which participated in Balakot air strike awarded citations on IAF DayDuring his hour-long speech, there were frequent protests by Congress members, as their leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury accused him of misleading the House and he was backed by his party colleagues. Goyal also defended the decision to discontinue tabling of a separate railway budget in Parliament, calling them “political budgets” which were used to sell dreams of new trains and railway lines to people for winning elections. With several opposition leaders accusing the government of ushering in the privatisation of the railways, Goyal noted that he had time and again rejected the claims and would reiterate again that there was no question of privatisation. Also Read – SC declines Oil Min request to stay sharing of documents on Reliance penalty”There is no question of privatisation of the railways. The railways cannot be privatised. However, if we have to increase the facilities in railways then obviously we need investments for it. We have taken a decision to encourage public-private partnerships and we will also corporatise some units. “We should invite investment in the national interest if someone is ready to get new technology, new stations, projects and lines,” the minister told the House. Goyal said that the Modi government had inherited a dilapidated railway, but had managed to turn it around in the past five years by laying new tracks, improving security and facilities for passengers. He said track kilometre grew by 39,000 km in 64 years, while in the past five years it grew by 7,000 km.last_img read more

Côte dIvoire maternity hospital renovated with UN help

19 April 2007A small town in Côte d’Ivoire today received the keys to a renovated maternity hospital from representatives from the United Nations peacekeeping operation, known as UNOCI, in the West African country. Thanks to the efforts of UNOCI and the non-governmental organization (NGO) Femmes Côte d’Ivoire Experiences, the town’s three-room unit – comprising a consulting room, a birthing room and a recovery room – was refurbished.The town of Raviart, located in the former so-called Zone of Confidence separating the Government-ruled south and rebel-held north, will benefit from the work since it will give “the area a modern maternity hospital to allow women to give birth in proper conditions,” said Abdourahmane Ganda, from UNOCI’s civil affairs coordination division.UNOCI representatives based in the Abidjan and several offices in the western and eastern zones attended the festive handover.Praising the Mission for its contributions to bringing peace to the country whose civil war officially ended in January 2004, local representatives called on UNOCI to assist in other projects geared towards developing infrastructure.UNOCI has nearly 9,000 total uniformed personnel in the country with a mandate to monitor the cessation of hostilities and movements of armed groups, help in disarmament and dismantling of militias and contribute to the security of the operation of identifying the population and registering voters. read more

Cold weather freezing water pipes across the region

Last Thursday Pat McMullan woke up to discover the waterline to her home was frozen. For four days she and her husband went without water until her neighbour allowed her to tap into their waterline. “I’m so glad it’s over. It was horrible. It wasn’t pleasant. The city did bring us two jugs of water and we got water from our neighbours. That’s how we had to flush the toilets, with water people brought to us.” The water was restored to Pats home this morning but that’s not the case for hundreds of other families that are still dealing with frozen lines. 720 homes have had frozen water lines this winter, an extraordinary amount considering last year there were 40.February’s record cold temperatures have resulted in a record number of homes reporting frozen waterpipes. The situation is so bad in Hamilton that the mayor held a news conference to address the issue.”This has been unusual. We’ve also had an unusual amount of watermain breaks” says Mayor Fred Eisenberger To fix the problem crews first have to find where the pipe is frozen. Dan McKinnon is the Director of Water and Wastewater Operations “typically that involves taking off the water meter and starting to feed in a small diameter hose in with hot water in it. Sometimes we see they are not able to do that because the further you push the line out the more difficult it gets to do it…so quite often we see they get out to road allowance and can’t get any further. In those cases we have to dig outside and expose the water line, heat it up with hot water to see if we can get the water line going.”The City has set up a new e-mail address specifically designed to address these issues. The email address is hwemergency@hamilton.ca read more

Finance Minister Joe Oliver says too early to say whether were in

Finance Minister Joe Oliver addresses the Australia-Canada Economic Leadership Forum in Vancouver, B.C., on Tuesday July 7, 2015. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Darryl Dyck Finance Minister Joe Oliver says too early to say whether we’re in recession by Geordon Omand, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 7, 2015 11:23 am MDT Last Updated Jul 8, 2015 at 7:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email VANCOUVER – Finance Minister Joe Oliver is tempering his optimistic outlook on the country’s economy, saying it’s too early to tell whether Canada has slumped into a recession.“The numbers aren’t out yet,” Joe Oliver said Tuesday in Vancouver. “When the numbers are out we’ll see what they have to say.”Concerns that the country has fallen into a recession have grown since Statistics Canada figures released last week showed that the economy contracted in April, marking the fourth straight monthly decline. The next round of GDP figures come out July 31.Oliver’s comments Tuesday marked a shift in his position. Oliver rejected the possibility last Friday when the Bank of America Merrill Lynch suggesting Canada was in a recession.On Monday, TD Bank added its voice to the growing chorus of economists warning that the country was likely in a recession through the first half of the year, largely because of the continuing fallout of low oil prices.“Canadian forecasters have consistently underestimated the impact of the sharp decline in oil prices on the Canadian economy,” wrote TD senior economist Randall Bartlett.That, coupled with Statistics Canada saying Tuesday the country’s trade deficit grew to $3.34 billion in May — worse than the $2.5 billion deficit economists had expected — have painted an economic picture that gets increasingly bleak.Despite the sluggish economic performance, Oliver said he remains confident that Canada would end the fiscal year with a $1.4 billion surplus as promised in the budget.Oliver said it’s important to remember that as an export-oriented economy, Canada is in a fragile economic environment, citing Europe’s economic woes in addition to the dramatic decline in the price of oil.More than half of Canada’s nearly $2-trillion economy consists of trade, making it highly susceptible to external factors, he said.“Trade is absolutely at the core of our prosperity and our growth,” said Oliver.A dismal American economic performance at the beginning of this year also undermined confidence for Canadian companies, he said.“But if they see the U.S. economy growing, I think they’ll see that as a positive sign to start investing once more.”New Democrat finance critic Nathan Cullen said the downturn is the product of the Conservative government.“When anything good happens the government claims credit, when anything bad happens it blames some overseas situations.“The reality is a lot of the concerns in the Canadian economy have been of the Conservatives’ own making. Their fixation on oil and their lack of ability in diversifying the Canadian economy left us very vulnerable to any downturn.”Oliver told a crowd of business leaders at the Australia-Canada Economic Leadership Forum earlier Tuesday that Canada must stay the economic course so as not to follow Greece.He said he has faith that Europe will be able to sort itself out over the debt crisis.Oliver also criticized the Liberals and NDP in his speech for what he described as their willingness to bring in higher taxes and increased public spending.“If we had listened to the opposition parties … during the economic crisis, the amount of deficits and debt that we would have incurred would have been a lot greater and we would still be in deficit today.”Federal Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau dismissed Oliver’s comments, saying the Tories have a history of running deficits while his party would balance the books.“Liberals know how to run surpluses,” Trudeau said in Montreal, where he was attending the Assembly of First Nations annual meeting.The federal election is set for October.Follow @gwomand on Twitter. read more

Fake Archbishop accused of stealing babies finally deported to Kenya after tenyear

first_imgGilbert Deya Gilbert Deya A self-proclaimed “Archbishop” has been deported to Kenya and charged with stealing babies after a “scandalous” ten year delay.Gilbert Deya, a controversial preacher who allegedly sold Aldi olive oil as a miracle cure for cancer, has been wanted in Nairobi since 2004, accused of being involved in a smuggling operation linked to claims he could provide infertile couples with “miracle babies” through the power of prayer.Last month, High Court judges said it was “truly alarming” that the extradition case had been allowed to drag on for so long and criticised successive Governments for allowing him to delay proceedings with a string of false documents.He was finally deported in the early hours of Friday morning and was charged in a Nairobi court with five counts of stealing children, all under the age of 14.Deya, who calls himself the “Archbishop of Peckham,” is said to have taken female followers from his UK churches to Kenya after giving them herbs to make them believe they were pregnant before presenting them with a baby, allegedly stolen from slum hospitals in Nairobi. Last year, he was accused of selling a £1.99 Aldi olive oil in his church shop in south London for £5.He claimed to have “anointed” the oil and suggested that if used on food, it could make cancer “disappear”.Deya was arrested in 2006 but had resisted attempts by successive governments to deport him.His fight against extradition finally ended last month when his application for a judicial review was dismissed by exasperated High Court judges.Lord Justice Gross said it was “little short of scandalous” that his case had taken so long to resolve.He said it was “essential” that such extradition cases were “firmly ‘gripped’” by the Home Secretary, to guard against such “incremental and massive slippage” adding: “The court will be more than willing to play its part.” Gilbert Deya at Westminster Magistrates in 2007 Deya, who lived in London, denied the charges against him. He was remanded in prison until next Thursday, when the court will rule on whether to release him on bail pending trial. The Telegraph revealed last month that Deya had been jailed in May after producing a forged “order” purporting to be from Kenya’s High Court absolving him of further criminal investigation.He had been telling loyal followers at Gilbert Deya Ministries, which is said to have a 36,000-strong UK congregation, that the devil was to blame and issuing lengthy instructions and sermons to his pastors by letter.He compared himself to the Apostles, who suffered at the hands of their enemies in God’s name, and claimed he is was in prison on “God’s assignment”.

Paul OConnell to escape citing after kicking Kearney in the head

first_imgYouTube Credit: RaboDirectPRO12PAUL O’CONNELL WILL not be cited for kicking Leinster winger Dave Kearney in the head.After reviewing footage of the incident, which left Kearney unconscious for a short period on Saturday night, it was found that the Munster lock’s actions were not intentional and so did not merit any punishment.Kearney had to be stretchered from the Thomond Park pitch after O’Connell inadvertently kicked him while trying to dislodge the ball in the second half.The news comes as a huge boost to Munster’s Heineken Cup chances as well as O’Connell’s own chances of making the squad for the Lions tour of Australia later this summer.A ban would have likely ruled him out of the European semi-final against Clermont Auvergne in Montpellier on 27 April, three days before Lions coach Warren Gatland announces his touring party.Joe Schmidt open to hearing what IRFU have to say on vacant Ireland joblast_img read more

Crowd packs Eagle River school for quake recovery update

first_imgDamage to Houston Middle School took the most damage during the Friday earthquake, and it’s very likely it won’t be re-opened this school year. (Photo courtesy of Tim Leach)It was standing room only at a question-and-answer session for Eagle River residents still recovering from the November earthquake. Local, state and federal officials were on hand to give information on how property owners should be filing damage claims, and what comes next.Around 200 people crowded into the gym at Alpenglow Elementary, some spilled out beyond the doors and into the hallways, craning their necks to hear the meeting.Eagle River resident Jesse James had lots of questions for officials.“We had complete foundation failure,” James explained after the meeting.  “We’ve got doors that are cocked sideways, windows cocked sideways everywhere.”Their home got a red tag from inspectors, deeming it uninhabitable. The family of five is currently splitting two hotel rooms.“We’re just waiting for answers,” James said.He thought the Q-and-A with officials was helpful once it ended and he could talk to people one-on-one to get advice. But he and his family are still in limbo. They have to check out of their hotel by January 6th.“At that point we may move into the temporary housing side of things where we might have a rental house or, I dunno, we may have to see if we can buy another house,” James said. “I’m not sure what the options are yet, we’re still waiting it all out.”Even though much of the major infrastructure damage in Anchorage is fixed, residents and public officials are realizing it will be a long road to full recovery.Eagle River and Chugiak were hit hard by the quake. Two schools are closed, forcing students to relocate to new classrooms in different schools. That’s bringing all kinds of new problems with busing, schedules and school breakfast programs.According to Municipal Manager Bill Falsey, Anchorage is navigating a recovery effort like this for the first time in recent memory.“The city generally has pivoted pretty successfully through the initial response phase, and now we’re dealing with the aftermath. And it is a new process to all of us. People are having to grapple with where they can sleep if their home is red-tagged tonight and what they’re going to do to finance some of the needed repairs,” Falsey said.As the state catalogs damages for its accounting of the earthquake’s aftermath, residents are still waiting for an official disaster declaration from the Trump Administration that would allocate federal funds for recovery.last_img read more

When Rashmika Mandanna cried on Geetha Govindam set

first_imgRashmika MandannaTwitterRashmika Mandanna has revealed an interesting flashback from the sets of Geetha Govindam. The actress cried after director Parasuram embarrassed her with his prank during its shooting.Having started her career in Sandalwood, Rashmika Mandanna forayed in to Tollywood with Naga Shaurya’s Chalo. Her second Telugu film Geetha Govindam gave her much-need big break and attention. He chemistry with Vijay Deverakonda was loved by everyone. Now, she has become one of the most sought after actress in Telugu and she has four big-ticket projects in kitty.Rashmika Mandanna opened up on Parasuram’s prank in a recent interview. “One day, I was a little late on the sets of Geetha Givindam. When I reached on the sets. No one talked to me and embarrassed me. I was not able to understand that what was happening on the sets, I sat down and started crying,” a movie portal quoted the actress as saying.But the director consoled Rashmika Mandanna by revealing the actual reason for the silence. “Later, Parasuram came to me and told me that it was just a prank and they did it to capture my natural sad expressions. I was shocked after hearing this that it was prank and it actually took me some time to come out of it,” the actress added.Rashmika Mandanna is waiting for the release of her next movie Dear Comrade. She will soon start shooting for his upcoming movies Bheeshma, AA 20 and Karthi 19. The interesting buzz in the industry is that she is being considered for the role of the female lead opposite Akhil Akkineni in Bommarillu director Bhaskar’s forthcoming movie.This film is said to be a breezy entertainer, which is bankrolled by Allu Aravind. “The script is young and wonderfully crazy and features Rashmika in a hitherto unseen avatar.

She said: “There are going to be cars parked outside my bedroom and living room windows. There is only one person in this block of flats who has a car.

I have hated the idea from day one.” Read MoreTop stories on StokeonTrentLive Plans have been lodged to create 16 parking bays in Blatchford Close, Meir But Brett Hall, aged 24, who lives in Farmwood Close, said: “Parking is tough.

With the new system, NiteHawk’s Wylie facility is the only urgent care center in Texas to better provide patients with low dose, high quality imaging, while also increasing access to quality urgent care designed specifically to meet the needs of children. “At NiteHawk Pediatric Urgent Care, our mission is to provide world class after-hours care to pediatric patients in our kid-friendly environment with our highly skilled team,” stated Ben Olsson, M.D., medical director, NiteHawk. “Viztek’s precision X-ray equipment allows us to focus on getting our patients the right diagnosis accurately and fast. Parents can be confident and rest easy that they are getting the best possible care from NiteHawk with the first Viztek DR imaging system at a Texas urgent care center that is specifically tailored to meet the needs of pediatric patients.”In the United States, there are approximately 9,000 urgent care centers, but less than 3 percent are pediatric focused. NiteHawk is a state-of-the-art pediatric facility providing medical care – for children up to age 21–when most pediatrician offices are closed. The facility provides various services, including imaging exams for strains, sprains and fractures, respiratory issues and gastroenterology problems, as well as other urgent care exams. “Families in Wylie and the surrounding communities now have access to high quality, reliable after-hours pediatric urgent care, that in many cases, can save them a significant amount of time without having to travel far for quality care,” stated Keyur Sathe, president and chief executive officer of NiteHawk. “We are very proud of the fact that NiteHawk’s Wylie location is the first and only facility in Texas with advanced DR technology from Viztek and believe it is a very important part of the high quality care that NiteHawk has become known for. Looking ahead, we hope to open five to seven facilities across the Dallas-Fort Worth area in the coming years and eventually even more across the nation, in continued partnership with Viztek.”Viztek’s Straight Arm DR solution provides superior imaging quality and can be used for various exams while helping to provide the lowest dose to children and peace of mind to their parents. During the exam, the system alerts the technologist to take necessary steps to reduce dose to the patient, while the cesium iodide (CsI) detector enables high image quality. The solution includes Viztek’s Pediatric Imaging Package that is dose-conscious and works to align with the goals and recommendations of the American College of Radiology’s (ACR’s) Image Gently initiative.For more information: www.viztek.net FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Artificial Intelligence | August 05, 2019 Montefiore Nyack Hospital Uses Aidoc AI to Spot Urgent Conditions Faster Montefiore Nyack Hospital, an acute care hospital in Rockland County, N.Y., announced it is utilizing artificial… read more Technology | Cybersecurity | August 07, 2019 ScImage Introduces PICOM ModalityGuard for Cybersecurity ScImage Inc. is bridging the gap between security and functionality with the introduction of the PICOM ModalityGuard…. read more News | Enterprise Imaging | July 29, 2019 Philips Announces 10-year Enterprise Informatics Agreement With Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire de Nancy Philips and Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire (CHRU) de Nancy, a leading academic hospital in the Grand Est… read morelast_img read more
