Seimone Augustus proud of WNBA player activism

first_imgMINNEAPOLIS, MN – Lindsay Whalen #13, Maya Moore #23, Rebekkah Brunson #32, and Seimone Augustus #33 of the Minnesota Lynx attend a press conference before the game against the Dallas Wings on July 9, 2016 at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. (Photo by David Sherman/NBAE via Getty Images)GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) _ Seimone Augustus grew up in Louisiana, not far from where Alton Sterling was shot this month. She knows that could have easily been someone she knew.“I lived three or four blocks from where the incident happened. It’s always in the back of my mind that it could have been a relative, a friend, a teammate a high school classmate,” she said.She’s sad to see what has happened to her hometown where relations have broken down. Three police officers were shot and killed a few weeks ago.“I have relatives in law enforcement as well. I don’t want to see it happen either way. That could have been an uncle or cousin,” Augustus said. “I have plenty of relatives in (Baton Rouge) law enforcement. I don’t know what we have to do to make it more proactive for the officers to be there in the communities to shrink the divide that is there.”Augustus and her USA Basketball teammates spent time last Monday in Los Angeles as part of Carmelo Anthony’s town hall meeting with community leaders, police officers and teenagers.That two-hour sitdown was a powerful meeting.“It was amazing,” USA teammate Brittney Griner said. “It was good to have officers come out, to have the community members come out and us as players come to together and voice and answer questions. For the cops not to be forced to be there and be there on their own was special. To hear both sides and try to come to a common ground. When something good starts happening, good outcomes start happening.”Griner too can see both sides. Her father was a police officer for many years in Houston. She has other family members as well in law enforcement.“I worry about my sister, I worry about my dad who wants to go back into law enforcement,” Griner said. “I told him if you do go back I’d rather you go behind a desk or teach. My dad was a good cop. I think more good cops should go back and give back that experience to the academy to help educate future police officers.”Griner was saddened by all that has gone on lately in the U.S. in Minnesota, Baton Rouge, Dallas and other places.“All the violence towards Black lives saddens me,” she said. “We fight for freedom, we fight for equality. We fight for all these things and we’re not holding up for what we stand for. It’s a change that needs to happen.”Griner and her Phoenix Mercury teammates along with two other teams were fined $500 by the league for wearing their plain black shirts because it was a uniform violation. That fine was later rescinded.The Minnesota Lynx started the social activism in the WNBA, wearing t-shirts and holding a pregame press conference earlier this month before the Mercury, Indiana Fever and New York Liberty wore their plain black shirts. Augustus said that it was actually coach Cheryl Reeve, who is an assistant with the U.S. Olympic team, who first had the idea to do something.The Lynx activism spread and brought all galvanized the WNBA players.“That’s what I am impressed about most,” said Tamika Catchings, who spoke at the town hall. “The fact that all 144 players in the WNBA came together on this issue and wanted to make sure their voices were heard. I think when you look at the power of African American women and being able to step up and join causes and support other brothers, that’s what it’s all about.”While the WNBA is on break for the month of August for the Olympics, the players will continue to try and come up with ideas to further show the importance of this issue. Just don’t expect any sort of activism at the Olympics on the court. The IOC frown upon any social activism displays at the Olympics saying that the Games are not a place for proactive political or religious demonstrations.“Right now we’re focused on these two weeks,” Diana Taurasi said. “If it comes up though, we won’t shy away from it.”___Follow Doug on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/dougfeinberglast_img read more

Campbell and Co stun disappointing Uruguay

first_img To make things worse for Uruguay, Maxi Pereira was sent off for an idiotic and violent hack on Campbell. 14/06/2014 And with Uruguay pressing for an equaliser, Costa Rica stung them again, with Campbell turning provider. He slid a brilliant through-ball in for Marco Urena, who rolled it past the miserable Muslera to seal the game. Most had expected them to come bottom of the “Group of Death”, also featuring England and Italy, but this was an inspired comeback.  And then Costa Rica turned the game on its head in the second period. Referee: Felix Brych (Germany). Goal: Campbell 53′; Duarte 57′; Urena 84′. A free kick on the right was whipped in superbly to the back post and Oscar Duarte dived in to head the ball back across Fernando Muslera’s goal and into the far corner.  Costa Rica: Navas, Gamboa, Umana, Gonzalez, Duarte, Diaz, Bolanos, Borges, Tejeda (Cubero 74), Ruiz (Urena 83), Campbell. The rest of the first half was an attritional affair, with neither side making any great threat. Costa Rica stunned Uruguay in Fortaleza despite falling behind to the fancied South American side. Sent off: Campbell. Uruguay threw on Gonzalez and Lodeiro immediately, while Abel Hernandez replacing Cristian Rodriguez was their third substitution later on. Uruguay: Muslera, Caceres, Lugano, Godin, Pereira, Gargano (Gonzalez 59), Arevalo, Rodriguez (Hernandez 76), Stuani, Forlan (Lodeiro 59), Cavani. Arsenal striker Joel Campbell took down a cross well and rifled home to equalise for Costa Rica. It was a brilliant goal, superbly taken by the young forward, who spent the last season on loan at Olympiacos.center_img England and Italy beware, Costa Rica are not here to make up the numbers.  The Liverpool forward is arguably the most in-form plater in the world but injury hampered his preparations for the World Cup and he may return against England next week.  And in the 57th minute, they scored again. Levante goalkeeper Navas, so impressive this season, made a fine stop from a Cavani header as Uruguay searched for an equaliser.  Upd. on 15/06/2014 at 05:03 CEST It looked soft at first but upon repeat viewings it was clear the referee had made the right call. But they only had to wait a few moments more for the goal they craved.  Uruguay thought they had taken the lead when Diego Godin prodded home from close range, but he was correctly adjudged to be offside.  Match facts Rik Sharma It meant star striker Luis Suarez was left on the sidelines.  Goal: Cavani 23 (pen). Booked: Caceres, Lugano, Gargano. Felix Brych pointed to the spot after 22 minutes, when Junior Diaz dragged down defender Diego Lugano in the box. Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani stepped up to the mark and drilled the penalty coolly past Keylor Navas, into the bottom-right corner.last_img read more

first_imgThere’s a super Saturday of basketball in store this weekend as five derbies will open the Basketball Ireland Men’s Super League with a bang. Basketball Ireland Men’s Division One:  Tradehouse Central Ballincollig v Limerick Celtics, Ballincollig CS, 16:00;LYIT Donegal v Abbey Seals Dublin Lions, LYIT, 16:00;LIT v UL Sports Eagles, Limerick IT Sportshall, 18:00;DBS Eanna v Bad Bobs Tolka Rovers, Colaiste Eanna, 19:00;Portlaoise Panthers v Scotts Lakers St Paul’s Killarney, St Mary’s Sports Hall, 20:00;KUBS BC v EJ Sligo All-Stars, KUBS Arena, Greendale, 20:00; Saturday 29th September 2018   Basketball Ireland Men’s Super League:  UCD Marian v DCU Saints, UCD Sports Centre, Belfield, 16:00;Griffith College Swords Thunder v Pyrobel Killester, ALSAA-Dublin, 18:00;Neptune v UCC Demons, Neptune Stadium, 19:00;Moycullen v Maree, Kingfisher NUIG, 19:30;Garveys Tralee Warriors v Keanes Supervalu Killorglin, Tralee Sports Complex, 19:30;Templeogue v Belfast Star, Oblate Hall Inchicore, 20:00; “It’s taken a while, but we would like to believe we have done our business right and have earned the right to be back here. It is an extremely difficult start to the season for us playing against a team with so much fire power and a winning culture, with experienced players who know how to be successful at this level, so you would have to say Demons are the favourites going into this game. We have to be prepared to match their intelligence, they will have the physical edge but we have to find a way to get our strengths ahead of theirs if we are to have any chance.”Demons’ head coach, Colin O’Reilly added: “The summer has seen a lot of changes to our playing roster for various reasons. With that, brings the unknown as we try to build cohesion amongst a group that have not been together very long. We start the season with a very young group and will look to build performances week in week out.”The kingdom of Kerry will also play host to the first Super League Kerry derby of the season, with Garvey’s Tralee Warriors hosting newly-promoted Keane’s SuperValu Killorgin at the Complex in Tralee.“We are very excited for the coming Super League season and are really looking to build on the fantastic season we had last year,” said Killorglin head coach, Ignas Sijianus. “It’s even more exciting that our first ever Super League game for the club is a local derby against Tralee. We are expecting a baptism of fire, especially with the big crowd there. That said, we are ready for it.”It’s also derby day in Galway, with Moycullen preparing to host Maree in the Kingfisher, NUIG: “We’re obviously looking forward to the game and getting the season underway,” said Moycullen head coach, John Cunningham.“Maree have two Division One college imports this season which makes them a very different team. We played them at the weekend in the Donie Greene tournament, and while we came out on top, we saw enough to know Saturday will be a whole different challenge.”In Dublin meanwhile, there will be two big derbies, with reigning League champions, UCD Marian hosting DCU Saints on Saturday afternoon. The game has the earlier tip off time of 4pm, while Griffith College Swords Thunder will go face-to-face with last year’s League runners-up Pyrobel Killester. The final game of the weekend will see Templeogue host Belfast Star at Oblate Hall on Saturday evening.Over in the Men’s Division One meanwhile, there are a number of big fixtures ahead, including two top of the table clashes, one in each conference. In the northern conference, newcomers Bad Bobs Tolka Rovers will be hoping that they can keep their winning streak intact as they travel across the Liffey to DBS Éanna who are also unbeaten.“We’re really looking forward to playing Éanna this weekend,” said Tolka’s Emmet Geoghegan. “These are the types of games you want to be involved in. Éanna have been very efficient in their play so far, they are shooting a great percentage, particularly from behind the arc. Heading into their gym, with them playing so well, will be an interesting challenge. We’ve started slowly in our opening games, and have only played to our potential in periods. If we can address this some way this weekend, I hope it will put us in a good position. Either way, I’m expecting an exciting and tough game.”In the southern conference, Tradehouse Central Ballincollig and Limerick Celtics will go head-to-head in Cork, with both teams sitting 4-0 after the opening few weeks of the season.“We are looking forward to Saturday’s big game,” said Ballincollig boss, Kieran O’Sullivan. “It’s important that we come out with intensity from the start, we are expecting a big crowd so it should be interesting.”Another Limerick derby is also in store this weekend, this time with LIT hosting UL Sports Eagles on Saturday evening. Basketball Ireland Fixtures: September 28-30thFriday 28th September 2018        Basketball Ireland Men’s Division One:  IT Carlow Basketball v WIT Vikings, Barrow Centre-IT Carlow, 20:00; Cork fans will be in a for a treat as, after a three-year break, one of the biggest rivalries in Irish basketball will be back on display as newly-promoted Neptune host neighbours UCC Demons in the opening game of the season. The fixture is even more interesting with the move of Lehmon Colbert from Demons to Neptune this season, and looking ahead to the game, Neptune head coach, Paul Kelleher stated: “It’s an exciting time for the club to be back at Super League level. It’s also great for Cork basketball.

Softball ‘sisters’ going head-to-head for championship

first_img“She is like my sister,” Shults said about Moore. “I want to beat her, but I love her and I’d be happy for her if she won, too.” Moore admits that on the field her friendship with Shults takes a back seat to her fellow Vikings. Like many of their teammates, who also have grown up playing together in youth leagues and on travel teams, Shults and Moore have learned how to keep friendships and games separate. “When we’re on the field it’s game time and you can’t let you friendship get in the way of that,” Moore said. “But it’s also exciting to play against a good friend.” Valencia coach Donna Lee explained that in Santa Clarita’s softball community several girls end up playing together on travel teams and then against each other on high school teams. SANTA CLARITA – The first time they sported their first official team uniforms, future softball stars Amy Moore and Jessica Shults were playing T-ball. More softball lessons – smacking line drives and tagging out runners at the plate – followed over the years. Nearly a decade later, these two high school sophomores never imagined they would learn the ultimate lesson in maturity and good sportsmanship on opposing teams. Tonight, Moore, of Valencia High, and Shults, of Hart High, will go head-to-head in the CIF Div. 1 Southern Section Championship. No question, the 16-year-old catchers – born 12 days apart – both want the win. But they say a little competition won’t stop them from sharing breakfast before the game. About 10 players on the Valencia team and five Hart girls are scheduled to practice together Sunday morning for their second team – barely giving the winners and losers of tonight’s game a chance to recover. Most years the back-and-forth dynamic only lasts through the league season since usually only one team in each league makes it far enough into the playoffs. But this year’s game carries a little more weight. “This is for bragging rights in this valley,” Lee said. Lee, who is coaching the top-seeded team and the favorite for the game, explained that while her girls want the win bad – Valencia lost two years ago in the championship to Simi Valley’s Royal High – they’ll be good sports about it. “These girls are on a mission to win, but this healthy rivalry will wear off as the summer goes on.” Hart coach Steve Calendo proved that the kind words and positive energy spread to coaches, too. “Valencia is a tremendous team. They have been our great friends,” he said. Calendo admitted going into the game he hadn’t expected to make it. He just wants his girls to have fun – and give it all they have. As for Hart pitcher Destiny Rodino, she plans to do that, but with a little flare. Rodino’s game plan is quite involved. Starting with the special oatmeal and orange juice breakfast, to the ribbon and socks she wears for the game, this sophomore has a slew of superstitious rituals she follows before stepping on the field. Rodino is among those Hart players opposing Valencia girls in tonight’s championship game, then playing with them for morning travel team practice Sunday morning. And the split loyalty doesn’t bother her. “It’s just part of playing in this valley,” Rodino said.

Bowlsby Sentenced to 10 Years in Walmart Pipe Bomb Case

first_imgLarry Bowlsby, 49, of Warrenton, Missouri, pleaded guilty in October and was sentenced on Thursday.A news release from the Department of Justice said filed court documents and Thursday’s sentencing hearing show that sometime before Sept. 26, 2007, Bowlsby built a pipe bomb. Court records indicate that on Sept. 26, 2007, Bowlsby and two minors entered the Walmart in Sylva, and once inside, Bowlsby placed the pipe bomb in the bag of one of the minors but removed it once he was inside the store.The release said court records show Bowlsby took the cart and the pipe bomb to the camping supplies section of the store, where he placed it among the small propane cylinders for camp stoves, ignited the device and left the area. The device detonated and caused an explosion. Court records show five people were nearby when the device exploded and had to be taken to the hospital for minor injuries. Bowlsby and the two minors drove away in Bowlsby’s vehicle.Authorities were also able to recover Bowlsby’s fingerprint from the shopping cart. Law enforcement ran the print against national databases in 2007 with no success. However, they ran it again in 2016, and the print matched Bowlsby, whose prints were put into the system after he was arrested in Colorado in 2008 and eventually pleaded guilty to charges.Bowlsby is in federal custody and will be transferred to the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons upon designation of a federal facility. All federal sentences are served without the possibility of parole. The man who detonated a pipe bomb in Sylva’s Walmart has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison. The incident happened in 2007.last_img read more

First and foremost, expect a lot of guests at the resort for Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend. The 10K is held on Saturday, and there will be a half marathon on Sunday morning to wrap up the event. The races add a wonderful energy to the resort, but they also bring a lot of people to the area, even if they aren’t hitting the attractions. Between the runners and the people there to support them, the area may feel more crowded than the crowd levels (which are based on attraction wait times) would suggest. Notably, this will be the last runDisney event at Disneyland for the foreseeable future; it was recently announced that there would not be any events in 2018 on account of the construction for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and other resort improvements.There have been holiday decorations percolating up into the resort since the day after Halloween, but the holiday season is now OFFICIALLY underway at Disneyland. The daytime parade has been replaced by A Christmas Fantasy Parade, Believe… In Holiday Magic takes over for the evening fireworks, and its a small world Holiday is now open for the season. Make sure you check out Rikki’s preview to learn more about what you can expect for the holidays.CrowdsCrowds will be notably higher this weekend for the Superhero Half Marathon event, with Saturday having the highest crowds of the week.  The remainder of the week is far more modest.Full details, including park-by-park crowd levels, are available on our Crowd Calendar.WeatherRemarkably pleasant and consistent weather all week long.  Highs in the mid-70s, lows in the mid-50s, and dry. Put another way, should be a gorgeous week in Southern California.As always, it’s wise to double check the weather as the day of your visit approaches. Check out the most up-to-date forecast here.ShowsReally light show schedule during the week, although both the Christmas parade and fireworks will run at least once each day. Weekend show schedules are much more full. Detailed show schedules, including smaller productions like Storytelling at Royal Theatre, can be found here.

All other Annual Passports will be honored all days of the week. For those of you buying tickets as day guests, single-day tickets are at Regular cost ($110 adult/$104 child) Saturday & Sunday, Peak ($124/$118) on Friday, and Value ($97/$91) the remaining days of the week.Regular park hours (excluding Extra Magic Hours/Magic Mornings) are as follows this week: SatSunMonTuesWedThurFri Disneyland9-129-129-109-99-98-118-12 California Adventure9-119-119-89-89-88-88-11 As per usual, the parks will open one hour early for eligible guests at Disneyland Park Saturday, Tuesday, and Thursday, and at Disney’s California Adventure Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

At Disneyland Park, River Belle Terrace is indefinitely closed. At California Adventure, Goofy’s Sky School is currently closed. Everything else is currently open, and no other refurbishments are scheduled for the remainder of the year. That said, just as attractions can go down unexpectedly over the course of the day, more significant issues can result in unexpected closures; as of now, however, it should be a more or less full slate of attractions until the new year.As always, you can see the full slate of refurbishments by checking here.That should do it for this week’s preview.
