NBA teams scored 273,573 points this season, fueled by new rules that allowed offenses more freedom of movement, a league-wide commitment to playing at a faster pace — and the still-growing love affair with the 3-pointer.In the 2012-13 season, NBA teams averaged 20 attempts from 3-point range — which was a record at that time. This season, they averaged 32 attempted 3s per game.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next SEA Games 2019: No surprises as Gilas Pilipinas cruises to basketball gold PLAY LIST 06:27SEA Games 2019: No surprises as Gilas Pilipinas cruises to basketball gold02:43Philippines make clean sweep in Men’s and Women’s 3×3 Basketball02:43Philippines make clean sweep in Men’s and Women’s 3×3 Basketball02:14Carpio 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 respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award The Bucks, the NBA’s top overall seed, play the Pistons.

And No. 3 Philadelphia — a team wrapped in intrigue right now — will face No. 6 Brooklyn.Joel Embiid played in only 10 of the 76ers’ 24 games since the All-Star break, and general manager Elton Brand told reporters Wednesday that “it is possible” the team’s best scorer and rebounder won’t be ready to start the playoffs.Embiid isn’t the only injury situation that made headlines Wednesday: The Celtics announced that Marcus Smart will miss four to six weeks with an injury to his left oblique — a massive blow to Boston.WESTERN CONFERENCEPortland rallied from 28 points down on Wednesday against Sacramento — which blew a lead that large for the second time this season.Denver finished on a 15-0 run to beat Minnesota.And with that, the West bracket was shaken up one last time before it was finally set.Top-seeded Golden State will face the eighth-seeded Clippers, a matchup that was known after early results Wednesday. The rest went right down to the wire, with No. 2 Denver facing No. 7 San Antonio, No. 3 Portland getting No. 6 Oklahoma City and No. 4 Houston facing No. 5 Utah. It was a worst-case for Houston, which entered the season’s final night in place to finish second, third or fourth in the West.The way the results fell means the Rockets, if they get past the Jazz, would likely see the Warriors in the second round — and not in the Western Conference finals. So there will be no rematch of last year’s title series out West, a tussle where the Rockets had a 3-2 series lead before Chris Paul’s hamstring balked and the Warriors went on to advance and reach the NBA Finals.The Nuggets clinched the No. 2 seed with their big rally to top the Timberwolves. The Blazers got to the No. 3 spot with their wild comeback to beat the Kings. The combination of those results dropped Houston to the No. 4 seed. Their reward: A series against MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks.The drama of the regular season went all the way to the very end of the regular season, with seven of the eight first-round playoff matchups not being clinched until the final night was in the books — the last three of them, out West, going down to literally the final moments.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissSPORTSCoronation night?SPORTSThirdy Ravena gets offers from Asia, Australian ball clubsThe two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors will start their quest for a fourth title in five years against the Los Angeles Clippers.“It’s not going to be as easy as people think it is,” Warriors star Kevin Durant said.

Woods won his most recent major crown at the 2008 US Open at Torrey Pines and has also won the PGA event staged at Torrey Pines seven times. No other PGA player has won so many times on a single course.Woods, who also has won PGA events seven times at Bay Hill and Firestone, moved closer to the all-time record of 82 triumphs set by the late Sam Snead.A fog delay that wiped out almost all play on Saturday led to the Monday finish, with darkness halting Woods’ final round on Sunday after seven holes. His 11 holes on Monday in the wind took four hours and disrupted his game.“In the end I just started losing my patience,” Woods said. “It was so slow out there.”Woods completed a final-round par 72 Monday despite going three-over in the closing stretch, finishing 72 holes on 14-under par 274. Fellow Americans Brandt Snedeker, the 2012 winner, and Josh Teater shared second on 278.Woods had two bogeys and a double bogey between the 14th and 17th holes, but the 37-year-old golf legend managed a par at the par-5 18th to close out the victory.“It got a little ugly toward the end,” Woods said. “I started losing my patience with slow play and lost my concentration there a little bit.”After missing the cut in his season opener at Abu Dhabi, Woods collected his first victory since last July at the US PGA National at Congressional.Taking the $1.08 million top prize at the $6.1 million event is a good omen for Woods.In all six prior years when Woods won the PGA event at Torrey Pines, he won at least four tournaments that year. In five of those six years, he won a major title that year.“I would like to win eight, nine times a year,” Woods said. “That’s not a bad thing.”Woods appeared set to threaten the tournament victory margin record he set in 2008 when he won by eight strokes but poor tee shots in the final holes swiped some of the magic from his dominating performance.“I had an eight-shot lead,” Woods said. “I just needed to stay upright.”Woods seized the lead after Friday’s second round, never played a stroke on Saturday, then stretched his lead to six strokes by playing six-under over 25 holes on Sunday.Opening with five pars Monday in breezy conditions, Woods saved par at the par-5 ninth after going way right off the tee near a spectator fence and saved par at the par-3 11th thanks to a bunker shot that rolled across the green to stop within inches of the cup.Woods birdied the par-5 13th for an eight-stroke edge. But Woods made his first bogey of the round at the 14th, then lost his ball in dense brush after going left off the 15th tee on his way to a double bogey.Woods parred the par-3 16th but took another bogey at the par-4 17th before coming home with a par.“I started losing my patience and consequently I made a few mistakes,” said Woods. “I played pretty well through 13, built myself a nice little lead and made a few mistakes coming home but had a big enough cushion that it was fine.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000LA JOLLA, California, January 28 – World No. 2 Tiger Woods captured his 75th career title on Monday, winning the US PGA Farmers Insurance Open by four strokes for his record-setting eighth career triumph at Torrey Pines.Despite struggling in windy conditions Monday, Woods showed flashes of the form that has brought him 14 major titles, four shy of the all-time record of 18 won by Jack Nicklaus.

SANTA CLARITA – Despite continuing concerns about runaway production, entertainment filming soared last month in Santa Clarita, officials said. The city issued 27 film permits in May, nearly double the 14 issued in May 2006. Officials estimate the entertainment industry has generated nearly $20 million for the local economy over the last 11 months. “It is amazing when you think about the amount of filming that is allegedly being moved outside the state of California, for us to have that kind of continued growth is phenomenal,” said Larry Mankin, president and CEO of the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce. Since the start of the fiscal year last July 1, the city issued 295 filming permits, about 4 percent higher than during all of fiscal 2005-06. This fiscal year has seen the largest number of filming days since 2002, when the city created a film office to expedite the needs of production companies. Two-thirds of the film days have been television productions, including “NCIS,” “the Unit,” “Deadwood” and “John from Cincinnati.” Each production working on a given day gets counted as a “film day.” So far, there have been 775 film days this fiscal year. “The whole filming industry is having a problem with finding places where they can film economically,” said Mayor Marsha McLean. “And I think it’s extremely important locally and as far as the state is concerned with being able to find locations where filming companies are comfortable doing their filming,” she said.
*DISCLAIMER: Like Newcastle’s recent record against Sunderland, this is just a joke.Joleon Lescott has said sorry to Sunderland supporters, claiming he signed for the club by accident.The former Aston Villa defender angered long-suffering Black Cats fans by joining their club as an underwhelming free transfer.But Lescott has offered an explanation for the January window gaffe.He said, “David Moyes messaged me asking if I wanted to sign for Sunderland.“The reply I sent saying ‘yes please’, with a picture of the expensive car I’d like to buy with my wages, was totally accidental and happened whilst driving (a brand new Mercedes Benz) when my phone was in my pocket.” Lescott’s explanation has gone down well with Sunderland fans, who aren’t used to seeing any kind of defence.

A new way forward: Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan, Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe, President Jacob Zuma new Reserve Bank governor Gill Marcus and her predecessor governor Tito Mboweni. Marcus has the challenging job of ensuring that South Africa’s currency continues to weather the rough economic storms. (Images: GCIS)Khanyi MagubaneThe appointment of South Africa’s new Reserve Bank Governor Gill Marcus on 19 July, has gained much approval from South Africa’s business and finance sector.Although Marcus will officially start her duties on 9 November, her recruitment back into the highest financial body in the country has been hailed as a breath of fresh air in the Reserve Bank that has been in the firm clutches of current governor, Tito Mboweni.President Jacob Zuma had re-appointed Mboweni as the Reserve Bank governor but Mboweni asked to step down in November to pursue other interests.This brings an end to his 10-year tenure in office.When Zuma announced the new appointment, he placed his full confidence in her ability to continue protecting the country’s currency. “Ms Marcus has extensive knowledge of the institution she is now called upon to lead, having served as a Deputy Governor of the Reserve Bank from 1999 to 2004.”Marcus was also the deputy minister of finance from 1996 to 1999.The president also thanked governor Mboweni for protecting the rand from the rough economic climate. “During Mr Mboweni’s tenure [the Reserve Bank] made a critical contribution to the country’s sustained economic stability and has pursued monetary policies that have fostered economic growth.”Keeping a firm hand on the currencyJournalists attending the press briefing asked Marcus if she would continue implementing the current monetary policies or would invigorate change into the existing ones.Marcus said although it was too early to speak about policy change, hers would be a style of collective leadership,“The style of leadership that I bring to the Reserve Bank is the style of leadership that I have exercised wherever I am and have been, and that is one of engagement.“I am there to listen and to learn and to see what the organisation is at this point in time and also to understand better the global environment.”But African National Congress (ANC) secretary general Gwede Mantashe told the media the next day on 20 July that Marcus would not be changing any policy. “Any change presents an opportunity, but policy is not a function of an individual. Gill Marcus is going to implement the policies that are there. She is appointed a Governor of the Reserve Bank, she will find policy.”Mantashe was speaking after a National Executive Committee meeting at Luthuli House, the ANC’s headquarters.This seemingly cautious and stable approach by the government has held well with the rand, which has enjoyed stability in the wake of the new announcement, by the president.According to online financial publication Fin24, Marcus’s appointment might even have helped the country’s currency.“The rand rallied to a session high of 7.98 against the [US] dollar on Monday, its strongest level since July 7, and was trading 0.4% firmer at 8.0075 by 6.38am compared with Friday’s close at 8.04.”“We had quite positive market reaction (to Marcus) this morning, and the rand is quite strong, though it also must be taken into consideration that the dollar is quite weak,” said Ion de Vleeschauwer, chief dealer at Bidvest Bank, speaking to Fin24.“From an international perspective … it gets the uncertainty out of the way. I expect the rand to remain strong and keep on still watching the international scene,” said de Vleeschauwer.Business Unity South Africa also welcomed Zuma’s appointment, saying that Marcus’s experience of the public and private sector made her a good candidate.Meanwhile, economics professor Stephen Hoskin from the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University also echoed the positive sentiments of Marcus’s appointment.“She has a lot of banking experience and seems like a person who will not be a push-over. I do not think the markets will react negatively. She would also be familiar with the benefits of the current monetary policy.”Rand Merchant Bank analyst John Cairns also voiced the financial institutions’ backing for the new appointment, “She comes with all the right credentials, having served as Deputy Finance Minister, Deputy Governor at the South African Reserve Bank and within the private banking system.A rise within the ranksThe new governor leaves her position as the banking group Absa’s chairperson, a position she has held since 2007, to assume leadership of the reserve bank.Having risen within the ranks in the ANC, Marcus has long been a standing figure within the party. In a 2006 interview newspaper Mail and Guardian, she said her fight for social justice has consumed her passion throughout her life. “Growing up, there was nothing else I was interested in. The SA condition was just so intolerable. So it didn’t matter whether I was 15 or 20, that was what my commitment was going to be.”Born in Johannesburg in 1949, Marcus grew up in the then middle class suburb of Berea.While attending school at Barnato Park High School for Girls in Johannesburg, she partook in various sports activities including swimming and horse riding.When her family moved to London, she joined the ANC there in 1970 and in 1975 she was employed full time by the organisation.She was the editor of the ANC’s weekly newsletter, the Weekly News Briefing, which was distributed around the world.She returned to SA in 1990, where she started the party’s information department. After a 30-year ban, Marcus was responsible for information distribution about the ANC to curious journalists who were keen to find out what the party was about.She has 13 years experience in finances, since joining cabinet in 1996.In accepting her appointment from Zuma, Marcus said, “thank you for bestowing on me this enormous honour and confidence in me to pick up on the institution, the South African Reserve Bank, on the excellent work that has been done to date by Governor [Tito Mboweni].”Do you have any comments or queries about this article?

5 September 2012 Locals in need of affordable health care arrived in numbers when South Africa’s Phelophepa health train spent the past week stationed in Polokwane in Limpopo province. A project of South African state logistics company Transnet, with major backing from Swiss pharmaceutical firm Roche, the Phelophepa health train started in 1994 to give affordable primary health care to the poor, particularly those living in remote areas of the country. “[Polokwane] exceeded our expectations,” Phelophepa acting manager Sibonelo Mtshali said on Friday. “We brought free services to their back yard, and we are happy they have used this opportunity.”Free check-ups, affordable medicine He said medical professionals on the train had checked for or treated various illnesses including high blood pressure, sugar diabetes and cancer, while some had offered dental and eye care. He said check-ups were done for free while medicines were sold for only R5. Those with eye problems paid only R30 for prescription eyeglasses. Mtshali said that at every station where it stopped, Phelophepa trained 40 volunteers to advise residents on basic health matters, while giving 70 jobless opportunities to help with translation and cleaning services.‘A lifetime opportunity’ Enipha Makgale, a final-year nursing student at Limpopo Nursing College, said she was thrilled to have been given an opportunity to get hands-on experience with Phelophepa. “This is a lifetime opportunity for us students because there are conditions that we don’t see at local hospitals and clinics,” Makgale said. Nomfundo Bhembe, who is studying towards a Bachelor of Dental Science at Medunsa, said it was both exciting and exhausting to attend to a lot of patients in a short time. “It’s been a long week, with a lot of experience gained,” said Bhembe.First trip to the doctor And the patients were clearly grateful. Local resident Modjadji Mochemi, 53, said she had never been to a doctor’s office because she could not afford medical fees. “I received my first free dental service at the train, and I wish they can come here every day,” said Mochemi. Francinah Mabotja, principal at Leetetja Primary School in Moletji, brought pupils with health problems to get medical check-ups. “Three of the pupils were checked for eye sight problems, while five were checked for dental problems.” The train’s Limpopo tour continues in Musina this week, Makhado next week, and Tzaneen from September 24 to 28.
