Thanks Cleveland, says “the journey continues” pic.twitter.com/leFoxAIkX2— Rachel Nichols (@Rachel__Nichols) August 31, 2017CLEVELAND — Kyrie Irving did not mention LeBron James, now his former teammate, while thanking Cleveland fans after his trade to Boston was finalized.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

While somewhat vague about his intentions, the All-Star guard explained some the reasons that led to him requesting the Cavaliers trade him following six seasons — and three straight trips to the NBA Finals.ADVERTISEMENT Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite MOST READ View comments Hotdog’s Dennis Garcia dies “You understand the magnitude of decisions that you make in your life can affect a lot of people all at once,” Irving said in the more than 4-minute video . “And when you get to that point and you understand that the best intentions for you and ultimately to be in your truth, and find out what you really want to do in your life and how you want to accomplish it — that moment comes and you take full advantage of it.“And there are no other ulterior reasons other than being happy and to be somewhere you feel like it’s an environment that’s conducive for you maximizing your potential.”Irving apparently felt it was time to get out from under the colossal shadow cast by James. The pair won an NBA title together — the first for any Cleveland team since 1964 — in 2016, but Irving did not single out James in his video or the accompanying note.When the Cavs first announced Irving’s trade on Aug. 22, James offered praise to his younger teammate on Twitter , saying: “Special talent/guy! Nothing but respect and what a ride it was our 3 years together.”Irving’s comments were his first since the trade. He was sent to the Celtics for All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas, forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic and the 2018 first-round pick Boston acquired from Brooklyn.ADVERTISEMENT In a meeting last month with Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert, Irving said he wanted out.

After the Cavs were beaten by Golden State in this year’s Finals, Irving spoke at length about what it meant to play with James and how much he had learned.But as he closed his video, Irving didn’t acknowledge their relationship.“And to my teammates: crazy stories, crazy experiences and just unbelievable human beings, man,” Irving said. “You all know how this brotherhood goes, man.

Man hangs self

first_img…after told he has to pay for crashed truckMohamed Omar, also called “Old Boy” and “Budzo”, a 65-year-old pensioner of Lot 1184 New Area, Canefield, East Canje Berbice, took his life after he was told that he has to pay for a new truck because he had damaged the one he was driving in a road accident. He was also fearful that the other driver, who was injured in the accident, might come after him.Omar’s wife, 54-year-old Bhamatie Isborn, found him hanging from a mango tree on Wednesday morning. She explained that her husband was arrested and placed in custody on Monday after he had driven a canter into another parked canter on the Corentyne Highway, and that accident had caused the driver of the parked canter to be injured and hospitalised.After Omar had been released on $30,000 station bail on Thursday, he arrived home and declared he was going to take his life.The injured canter driver told Police that he was in his canter parked at the side ofDead: Mohamed Omarthe road while his wife and daughter had gone into a store to make a purchase. He said he saw Omar’s canter approaching his at a fast rate of speed, and as Omar reached closer, a car got into his path, and he served to avoid a collision and ended up running into his canter, thus hitting it off the road and into a trench.This canter driver was reportedly pinned in the cabin of his vehicle, and had to be pulled out therefrom by public-spirited citizens. Omar was arrested, and after his release, he indicated that he was going to take his life.Omar’s wife noted that her husband’s employer had called her daughter and requested that she collect her father’s lunch bag and bicycle.“When she bring it, ‘Old Boy’ say, ‘Watch Dude send dem thing, so he gon leff me alone on the pressure?’ He tell me like he gon got to sell the house and all a-we gon got to go on the road an live, an he still gon be in trouble; so best thing is fo he kill heself,” the woman cried.She told this publication that she did not take his utterances seriously.Omar had suffered a stroke three years ago, and could not work. He resumed working last week, and had worked two days as a driver despite his wife begging his employer not to re-employ him.The grieving widow said she went to bed on Tuesday evening leaving her husband outside along with one of his grandchildren. The child reportedly last saw his grandfather in bed at about 1:00h on Wednesday morning.According to this widow, when she got up she did not see her husband in his room, and she rushed to the washroom to check for him. “Then I run to the back door, and when I push it open I see the hammock loose down, and ah know something happen. And when ah run and go outside, I see he hanging on the tree.”Isborn believes that if her husband had received some support from his employer after the accident, he might not have harmed himself. Omar leaves to mourn a wife, seven children and four grandchildren.last_img read more

Citizens pressured into signing ‘backers list’ – Jagdeo alleges

first_imgOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo said it was brought to his attention that persons are allegedly being pressured into signing ‘backers lists’ for the Alliance For Change (AFC).He said this is particularly for those individuals who are engaged under the Community Infrastructure Improvement Project (CIIP) and Community Policing Groups in several areas, ahead of Nomination Day on Friday, September 21.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo“This move to intimidate persons, ties in with the AFC’s move to ‘buy’ support via the corrupt $120 million contract, for weeding parapets along the roadways, that was awarded to eight AFC activists,” he said.The Opposition Leader therefore urged people not to be intimidated into signing any lists.“I have had similar reports coming in from different parts of the country about both the AFC and APNU (A partnership for National Unity) misleading persons into signing lists, by claiming that they were signings up as eligible applicants who can access benefits such as house lots, among other things,” he added.Only last week, Chief Scrutiniser and Executive of the political party, Zulficar Mustapha, said he was reliably informed by several people that some political parties are on the ground misleading voters around the country.From the complaints received, he noted that the AFC, United Republican Party of Guyana (URP) and the APNU are the perpetrators.Mustapha told Guyana Times that before a candidate can contest a constituency of a Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC) area, he or she would have to have a certain amount of backers.“For the [Neighbourhood Democratic Council] NDC you have to have 20-30 signatures of persons who live in that constituency. The entire list for an NDC area requires 30 backers. In the municipality the number of backers for constituency candidate is 60 and number for entire municipality list which is proportional representation part is 110.”The PPP executive said his party was informed that AFC/APNU supporters are going around telling people they can sign more than one list of candidates.He said, “That is wrong! If you sign on more than one list of candidates, those lists can become nullified and invalid. In Rose Hall we had people from URP who went and mislead people, telling them that they are from the PPP… so they were suspicious of their movement and URP activist and we double-checked.”Mustapha feels people are rejecting the coalition parties, particularly the AFC and URP, “and now they using cover under the PPP to dupe people.” He therefore warned potential voters against signing any list that they don’t feel comfortable with and to ensure they verify the authenticity of the list.“I know there are many persons that people are willing to sign on our list, and AFC and APNU people are reluctant to sign on their list to back their list of candidates. This is a trend that might take place before Local Government Elections and we are monitoring the situation carefully,” he added.The PPP chief scrutiniser said these complaints are not just limited to one particular areas but were spread out across various regions, including Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara); Region Four (Demerara-Mahaica); Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne); and Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni).Jagdeo said he would urge Guyanese to be wary of such practices. “I am calling on GECOM to institute stiff penalties for such acts, since they are tantamount to electoral fraud. Also, I want to assure all Guyanese that the PPP will be investigating this matter, as we continue to work to ensure that the elections are free and fair.”GECOM has already been accused of encouraging gerrymandering of boundaries to favour APNU/AFC. Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo pointed out that changing the number of Local Authority Areas (LAAs) is the privilege of Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan, but it is the role of GECOM to constitute new LAAs where they are created, and reconstitute existing ones where they have been changed.He stressed that in seeking to undertake such, it must be done fairly and in consultation with political stakeholders. This, according to him, has not been the case. Jagdeo pointed to a few examples, in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam), Region Three and in Region Six.Jagdeo explained that by merging the constituencies where the PPP won, GECOM is reducing the number of seats won by the PPP in that particular LAA. He said by not merging the constituencies where the APNU/AFC won, where there are less voters, GECOM is providing for an increase in the number of possible seats APNU and AFC could win, based on the results at the 2016 Local Government Elections.The PPP is challenging the Minister’s decision in court.last_img read more

Does Your PR Firm Need a PR Firm?

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… When it comes to getting a new startup off the ground, it’s important to get the word out. Whether by email, Twitter, social networking, launch events or any other number of methods, you’ll want to let people know that there’s a new kid on the block, but there’s one thing you want to avoid – getting called out as a spammer.Looking through the feeds this morning, there was a post that immediately stood out – VC Jason Mendelson writing on “Why AtomicPR Sucks Ass. And How They Are Breaking the Law, Too.” Ouch.Mendelson’s complaint pertains to the “carpet bombing strategies” he says he’s seeing more and more of from PR firms.While hiring a PR firm to get the word out can be an important next step for a startup, it’s apparent that it cannot be the final step. If all that PR firm is doing is spreading the word, indiscriminately and without regard for who might actually be interested in hearing about your startup, then it may hurt, not help, your brand. As Mendelson writes, when he informed a fellow VC that the firm he’s taking issue with had been using this tactic for one of his own investments, that VC was “none too happy”. Remember that allowing a PR firm to run free with your brand is essentially allowing it to have control over how your startup comes off to the rest of the world. There can be a fine line between persistence and spamming and, as the eyes on the other end of that email, we would caution any startup from crossing that line. Rather than email bombing popular blogs in hopes of standing above the thousands of other emails they receive daily, you might indirectly target reporters, by getting featured in smaller publications before reaching out to the big boys. Another method that can be particularly effective is to get the word out by leaving comments about your company on blog posts about related topics, which, believe it or not, can be done without being spammy.While this may all seem like a warning to PR firms, it is not – it is a reminder to know your PR people before you hand over the keys to the castle and make sure your PR firm doesn’t need it’s own PR firm. The last thing you want is to start having the PR firm you’ve hired get called out by members of the VC community for spamming them and ignoring requests to end the emails. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketcenter_img Tags:#start#startups Related Posts mike melansonlast_img read more

AAP wants Punjab budget session extended

first_imgUnhappy over a shorter budget session of the Punjab Assembly that is slated to start from March 20, the Aam Aadmi Party has asked the Speaker to extend it to at least 15 sittings.In a letter to the Speaker, AAP leader Kanwar Sandhu has pointed out that usually the State budget sessions have between nine and 15 sittings.Endorsed by Mr. Khaira“The session falls woefully short of even the earlier sessions,” said Mr. Sandhu in the letter, which has been endorsed by the Leader of the Opposition, Sukhpal Singh Khaira.Pressing to extend the session to the second week of April, Mr. Sandhu said, “As the Speaker, you are the House custodian and the duration of the session is your, and not the government’s, prerogative. The Government could give you a list of the business that it seeks to bring forward. As the Speaker, you could ask each of the Opposition parties for their list of the business before taking the final call on the number of sittings the House would have.” Pointing out that Punjab was today facing a severe crisis forcing the people to head for foreign countries, Mr. Sandhu said, “Future generations would not forgive us for neglecting the vital issues plaguing the State. These can be addressed only through discussion and debate and not by pushing them under the carpet. Punjab has not only been let down by its bureaucracy but also looted by its political masters. The only hope lies in the parliamentary institutions like the Vidhan Sabha, which needs to debate the vital issues plaguing the State.”last_img read more
