Opinion Slow start shouldnt concern Cleveland Cavaliers fans

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James addresses an official during a game against the New Orleans Pelicans on Nov. 10. at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. Cleveland won, 118-111.Credit: Courtesy of TNSWhen LeBron James returned to the Cleveland Cavaliers, he knew the team would have an adjustment period.“It’s something that I was ready for,” James told ESPN.com on Nov. 24. “I knew that it was going to be my biggest challenge of my career thus far, so I accept the challenge, and when we lose, I take full responsibility. When we win, the team wins. That’s what it’s about.”And a transition it has been. Through their first 16 games, the new “Big 3” of Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and James have gone 9-7 and currently sit in sixth place in a weak Eastern Conference.However, it takes time for everything to play out.But what is everything though? Everything consists of team chemistry to off-court relationships and both offensive and defensive playmaking. James knew that the Cavs would go through all of this. And it’s because he’s done it before.Many fans and media expected the Cavaliers to start the regular season being a great team, and with James’ first “true” point guard in Irving, many thought this team could rely on its playmaking alone.Despite having a 5-3 record through the middle of November, the Cavs lost four straight, causing many to wonder if coach David Blatt was the right coach for one of the most talented teams in the NBA. Some fans have even wanted Blatt fired, as James has taken on a coaching role because Blatt has never played or coached in the NBA before.Blatt played collegiately at Princeton and then went on to play and coach in Israel, as well as coach the Russian national team in the 2012 Olympic games, leading the team to a bronze medal.But the NBA is different from any place Blatt has coached before, and it shows.Coming into Tuesday’s game against Milwaukee the Cavs, despite being 11th in the NBA in points per game with 103.3, ranked 24th in total rebounds per game with 41.1. Defensively, it ranks 17th in total points allowed per game with 99.3. They are also 27th in assists allowed per game with 24.8.Love was also on the record saying that his new team was going to have a transition period.“It’s going to take a little bit of time, but we’re going to clean this up, I guarantee you that,” Love told ESPN.com. “Team morale is great. We get along, but we know we have a ton of work to do.”Through everything the Cavs have gone through this season, many fail to mention that James and his former team, the Miami Heat, had a transition period of nearly a month and a half, before the team started to get a feel for one another’s style of play.It wasn’t until Dec. 2, 2010, when the Heat played the Cavs, in what was James’ first game against his former team, that the Heat turned the corner. Despite Cleveland going into that game with two straight wins, the Heat beat the Cavs, 118-90. After that, everything seemed to click for the winning team. From there, the Heat continued their three-game winning streak and won 20 of their next 21 games.Before going on that run and heading into 2011 at 25-9, some were calling for the firing of coach Erik Spoelstra.Despite taking the Heat to the NBA Finals in his first two seasons coaching the team, its start was something many didn’t expect.In their first 18 games together, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and James went 10-8, with key wins coming against the Orlando Magic and Philadelphia 76ers, who both made the playoffs that season. Rumors had spread that Heat President Pat Riley would relieve Spoelstra of coaching duties and take over. Instead, Riley did nothing, and the Heat lost to the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals that season.Sixteen games in, the Cavs have key wins against the Atlanta Hawks, Chicago Bulls and the Washington Wizards and are still going through some growing pains, but have won four-straight.But like the Heat, it doesn’t matter what is going on now, the future is more important. That’s why people say it’s not how you preform in the first half of the season, it’s how you preform in May and June.So while fans may be worried about how the Cavs preform, remember that it just takes time.Time is one of the hardest things to live with as a sports fan because as a team is going through a rebuilding phase, the product you see on the floor isn’t necessarily the product you’ll see at the end of the day.By the beginning of January, I guarantee Blatt and the Cavs will have figured something out and will continue to fight toward a potential birth in the NBA Finals. Only so much can be learned during training camp, and time for adjustments in the regular season has to be learned in practice and during in-game situations. read more

Klopp tells Ozil Gundogan critics Shut up

first_imgLiverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has jumped to Mesut Ozil and Ilkay Gundogan’s defence in the fallout from Germany’s dreadful World Cup campaignThe midfield duo caused controversy before the start of the tournament following their meeting with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan in London.Both players are of Turkish descent and Gundogan later insisted that there was no political intent behind the meeting, although Ozil has chosen to remain silent on the matter.The Arsenal playmaker has been on the receiving end of most the criticism with Germany’s general manager Oliver Bierhoff even claiming that Ozil should have been left out of their World Cup squad after their first group stage exit in 80 years.But Klopp has called for an end to the nonsense and backed Gundogan’s claims that their meeting with the Turkish president was innocent.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“The intelligent people of this country demand tolerance. And the others should shut up and not question the boys,” Klopp told Sport Bild, via SportsKeeda.“Both were certainly not very well advised in this matter. Older, more experienced people should have helped them there.“We should not forget that the two of them have Turkish roots even though they grew up here in Germany.“But it is the same as always: the one who cries the loudest is the one who hears the most. But that’s never been my thing.”Ozil was unable to either score or have an assist for Germany in his two starts at the World Cup, while Gundogan made just the one substitute appearance in the national side’s only win of the competition against Sweden.last_img read more

Sterling praises Sanchos work ethic

first_imgRaheem Sterling paid tribute to Jadon Sancho’s work ethic and insists he’s unsurprised on how quickly the teenager’s adapted at EnglandThe 18-year-old winger made his international debut for the senior England team in Friday’s goalless draw at Croatia by replacing Sterling for the final 12 minutes.Despite the short amount of time on the pitch, Sancho left observers impressed with his seamlessly transition into the Three Lions squad.But Sterling, who trained alongside the youngster at City before his switch to Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund, insists that it is of no surprise to him.“He is a really good talent and someone I’ve thought highly of since the first time I saw him at Manchester City when he was training with us in pre-season,” said Sterling, according to the Irish Mirror.“I thought highly of him – his work ethic and what he does with the ball. I know him really well and he’s someone that is really modest but when he’s on the field he wants to express his ability.”Sterling also backed Sancho’s shock decision to leave for Germany last year.“For someone so young to back themselves to go abroad is a credit to them,” he added.“To go abroad so young and back yourself, that shows a lot about the person. He could have taken the easy route and stayed at City but he saw himself developing better.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“That’s what it’s about in football – you have to judge your own situation and he did that perfectly and all credit to him.“He has knuckled down in Germany and, when you’re that age, it’s probably something you need. To have that seclusion and be by yourself a bit and to concentrate solely on football. I’m really happy for him.”After Friday’s match, the England squad had a break at the team hotel with Sterling and Sancho getting involved in a video game showdown between Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.Playing as Juventus, Sancho led the Italian side to a 3-1 win over Sterling’s PSG – which the latter certainly didn’t enjoy come the full-time whistle.We all know that friend 👋😂🤣#Sterling #Sancho #FIFA #FIFA19[🎥IG/sanchooo104] pic.twitter.com/eraKZXU4WY— Xtra Minute (@XtraminuteTV) October 14, 2018last_img read more

Judge In Opioid Trial Rules Johnson John

first_imgJudge In Opioid Trial Rules Johnson & Johnson Must Pay… Sue Ogrocki https://ondemand.npr.org/anon.npr-mp3/npr/atc/2019/08/20190826_atc_oklahoma_opio…center_img by NPR News Jackie Fortier, Brian Mann 8.26.19 6:31pm Updated at 6:00 p.m. ETAn Oklahoma judge has ruled that drugmaker Johnson & Johnson helped ignite the state’s opioid crisis by deceptively marketing painkillers, and must pay $572 million to the state.Oklahoma sought $17.5 billion, blaming Johnson & Johnson for fueling the crisis that has claimed the lives of more than 6,000 people in the state.It’s the first ruling to hold a pharmaceutical company responsible for one of the worst drug epidemics in American history.Judge Thad Balkman delivered his decision from the bench, after presiding over a seven-week civil trial in the college town of Norman, Okla.”The defendants caused an opioid crisis that is evidenced by increased rates of addiction, overdose deaths and neonatal abstinence syndrome in Oklahoma,” Judge Balkman said in a statement.Johnson & Johnson immediately released a statement saying that the company “plans to appeal the opioid judgment in Oklahoma.”Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter’s suit alleged that Johnson & Johnson, through its pharmaceutical subsidiary Janssen, helped ignite a public health crisis that has killed thousands of state residents.Balkman said in the ruling that the state made its case that Johnson & Johnson contributed to the state’s opioid crisis, affirming the key legal argument of the state’s case, that the drugmaker had created a “public nuisance.””The state met its burden,” Balkman said, proving the company acted improperly with its “misleading marketing and promotion of opioids.””This is a temporary public nuisance that can be abated and the proper remedy for the public nuisance is equitable abatement,” he said in a statement.Johnson & Johnson argues that the facts don’t support the judge’s finding.”This judgment is a misapplication of public nuisance law that has already been rejected by judges in other states,” said Michael Ullmann, executive vice president, general counsel for Johnson & Johnson, in a statement. “The unprecedented award for the state’s ‘abatement plan’ has sweeping ramifications for many industries and bears no relation to the company’s medicines or conduct.”Attorney General Hunter celebrated the state’s win, despite the discrepancy between the $572 million award and the billions the state had asked for.”It’s going to be an important step forward in dealing with the epidemic,” he told reporters. “Certainly we would have liked to walk out of here with $17 billion, but realistically we’ve been able to get together almost a billion dollars to help Oklahoma.”Initially, Hunter’s lawsuit included Purdue Pharma, the maker of OxyContin. In March, Purdue Pharma settled with the state for $270 million. Soon after, Hunter dropped all but one of the civil claims, including fraud, against the two remaining defendants.Just two days before the trial began, another defendant, Teva Pharmaceuticals of Jerusalem, announced an $85 million settlement with the state.Both companies deny any wrongdoing.Johnson & Johnson marketed the opioid painkillers Duragesic and Nucynta. Lawyers for the company say its products were highly regulated by the Food and Drug Administration, among other agencies, and that the state did not provide any evidence showing the company’s sales practices helped fuel the crisis. It argued these branded opioid products made up less than 1% of total opioid prescriptions in Oklahoma.As NPR reported in July, during the trial the state’s expert witness, Dr. Andrew Kolodny, testified that Johnson & Johnson also profited by manufacturing raw ingredients for opioids and then selling them to other companies, including Purdue, which makes Oxycontin.Speaking on behalf of Janssen and Johnson & Johnson Monday, attorney Sabrina Strong told reporters that “litigation is not the answer” to the opioid crisis.”Johnson & Johnson did not cause the opioid crisis. Although it includes some diversion of prescription medicine, it’s largely driven by illegally manufactured drugs that are coming into the country from Mexico and elsewhere,” she said.The case is being closely watched by plaintiffs in other opioid lawsuits, particularly the roughly 2,000 cases in the National Prescription Opiate Litigation which is pending before a federal judge in Ohio. That consolidated lawsuit includes 22 defendants — opioid manufacturers and distributors, including Johnson & Johnson.In a statement, the co-lead plaintiff attorneys of the Ohio litigation called today’s ruling a “milestone,” saying the ruling in favor of Oklahoma’s public nuisance claims is a “critical step forward” for the communities they represent.”The ruling in favor of the State of Oklahoma’s public nuisance claims confirms what communities have been saying for some time: the opioid epidemic significantly interfered with public health,” said the attorneys, Paul T. Farrell Jr., Paul J. Hanly, Jr., and Joseph F. Rice.Copyright 2019 NPR. To see more, visit NPR.last_img read more

Dogs can do what you do or remember what you say

first_imgFor all dog owners out there, your canine friends are paying attention to what you say and do and they’ll remember too. It will be a delightful discovery for dog lovers to know about the findings of this study.A new study has suggested that just like humans, dogs too have “episodic memory” – the ability to remember and recall events from the past. The study revealed that dogs can recall a person’s complex actions even when they don’t expect to have their memory tested. “The results of our study can be considered as a further step to break down artificially erected barriers between animals and humans,” said Claudia Fugazza from Eotvos Lorand University (ELTE) in Budapest, Hungary.  Also Read – Add new books to your shelfFor the study, the team first trained 17 dogs to imitate human actions with the “Do as I Do” training method, in which dogs watch a person perform an action and then do the action themselves. For example, if their owner jumps in the air and then gives the “Do it!” command, the dog would jump in the air too. Next, the dogs were trained to lie down after watching the human action, no matter what it was.After the dogs had learned to lie down reliably, the researchers surprised them by saying “Do It” and the dogs did. The dogs were then tested in that way after one minute and after one hour.  Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThe results showed they were able to recall the demonstrated actions after both short and long time intervals. However, their memory faded somewhat over time, the researchers observed. The same approach can most likely be used and adapted in a wide range of animal species, to better understand how animals’ minds process their own actions and that of others around them, the researchers noted. The study published in the journal Current Biology.last_img read more

Rep Marino votes to support lakeshore conservation and recreation

first_img State Rep. Steve Marino voted today in favor of a plan to improve Waterfront Park in Harrison Township and to add acreage to two other Clinton Township parks.The legislation approved by the House of Representatives, with Marino’s support, includes $156,000 to remove an existing seawall at Waterfront Park along Jefferson Avenue and replace it with a stone breakwater and marsh. The project will also include the addition of recreation amenities, including a kayak launch, boardwalk and educational exhibits.“You can’t define ‘summer’ in Macomb County without talking about Lake St. Clair,” said Marino, of Harrison Township. “I am excited to see one of our waterfront parks receive updates that will make it accessible for even more residents to enjoy a greater range of summer activities. If escaping this winter’s bitter cold doesn’t have you already wishing for summer, this project is certainly one more reason to look forward to it.”The plan also includes $421,000 for the acquisition of two separate parcels of land that are a part of longer-term plans to expand and enhance Clinton Township parks.The full plan approved by the House today includes $26 million for 34 recreational development projects and 30 land acquisition projects statewide, including the three Macomb County projects.  Investments outlined in the proposal were recommended by the Natural Resources Trust Fund Board in December. Recommendations are subject to approval by the Michigan Legislature, a process started within the House Appropriations Committee last week. House Bill 4244 next advances to the Senate for further consideration.Money in the Natural Resources Trust Fund comes from the development of minerals on state land and is designated on an annual basis in partnership with local governments.### 07Mar Rep.

Pa. in 2011 Torba moved to California in late 2014 when his startup was picked for the Y Combinator a Silicon Valley incubator Friends told Bloomberg News that as a political conservative he felt out of place in Silicon Valley In various interviews Torba has explained that he was motivated to create Gab during the 2016 presidential election after reading reports that major social media companies like Facebook may unfairly promote posts and topics discussed by liberal users over conservative ones“I didn’t set out to build a ‘conservative social network’ by any means but I felt that it was time for a conservative leader to step up and to provide a forum where anybody can come and speak freely without fear of censorship” Torba told the Washington Post in November 2016“Every major communication outlet every major social network is run owned controlled and operated by progressive leaders progressive workers in Silicon Valley” he saidShortly after the election Torba further alienated himself from many of his peers getting kicked out of a Y Combinator online alumni group for directing profane anti-immigrant language at other membersTorba a Trump supporter and self-described “conservative Republican Christian” has maintained that Gab’s mission is to facilitate free speech online and that supporters of all ideologies are welcome Nonetheless Gab immediately attracted users from the far right including a number of well-known alt-right extremist and fringe figures such as Richard Spencer Milo Yiannopoulos and Alex Jones who were losing their mainstream social media platforms around the time Torba launched Gab“It’s hard for me to dissociate Gab from the reason it was founded which was quote-unquote left wing censorship” said Keegan Hankes an expert on online extremism at the Southern Poverty Law Center Hankes says Torba established Gab to give a platform to “the most extreme hate groups leaders and extremists being purged from major social media platforms for blatantly inappropriate and harmful behavior”“He looked at that and created a home for those people to come live in and he knew it” said Hankes “The type of behavior [Y Combinator] threw him off for is kind of the type of behavior that is definitely a core part of Gab”“The biggest thing about it is there are basically no rules You can go on there and say anything you want virtually no matter how disgusting or vitriolic or ultimately dangerous” Hankes said adding that the swift suspension of Bowers’s account on Saturday was “the first time I’ve seen them do it willingly in a proactive way”Hankes noted that Torba — who appears to make all the decisions about moderating content on Gab — has only been moved to remove particularly offensive or threatening posts from the site on a couple of occasions and only in response to threats from online hosting providers“That I think illustrates how far he’s willing to take this kind of free speech absolutism and of course that’s why you have every major hate group leader on there using it” said HankesPeople mourn in Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum during a community gathering held in the aftermath of Saturday’s deadly shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh Oct 28 2018 (Photo: Matt Rourke/AP)MoreSaturday was “the first time that I think there’s been a very very clear connection between someone’s activity on Gab and some sort of real-world tragedy” Hankes said but added that the site is still young “It didn’t take Gab very long to find itself a bona fide murderer allegedly on its platform”Most of the organizers and leading figures in last year’s Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville including those who’ve been arrested in connection to violence at that event had accounts on Gab before it was taken offlineOren Segal director of the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism said that while he doesn’t believe Torba himself is a white supremacist or an extremist the free-speech narrative he’s adopted in defense of his platform is similar to the one that has been embraced by far-right groups“I think what he has done is not only provide a platform but has ignored calls for corporate and social responsibility” Segal told Yahoo NewsWired editor Nicholas Thompson questioned whether the moral case for shutting down Gab and other sites like it should override the free speech argument for keeping it around — and whether the tech companies who have the power to make such decisions are using it wisely“Should Gab have been knocked away If your first principle is free speech of course not” Thompson wrote Monday “Anti-Semitism is not illegal and providing a platform where anti-Semites post is not illegal either Threats of violence are illegal but Gab says that it does its best to remove them”Thompson also raised a practical question about the fallout from dismantling Gab “Pushing the alt-right off Twitter drove them to Gab” he pointed out “Will shutting down Gab just push people to Voat [a Reddit-like forum that boasts a “no censorship” policy] or whatever comes next”Segal noted that he and his colleagues at the ADL have recently observed conversations among the extremists they observe online regarding next steps in light of Gab’s current removal from the internet and whether that Gab will find a new home or be forced to take their content to another platform that shares a belief in uncensored speech“This is the beginning of this discussion” he said referring to the issue of hate speech online “Gab being taken down is not the end”Read more from Yahoo News:
