“It’s the first I faced this type of challenge in my career,” said Bryant of his 19-years in the NBA. “Honestly I don’t know. I’l think about it and talk to the great team of therapists and figure it out.”Scott said he considered playing Bryant fewer than 36 minutes when the Lakers’ star informed him during the game that he did not feel well. But Scott decided ohterwise.“He also wanted to see if he could push through it,” Scott said. “I wanted to give him that opportunity.”That did not work. Bryant’s 1-of-14 shooting clip represented his lowest marks since shooting only 1-of-8 on Feb. 12, 2013 against Phoenix. In that game, Bryant also did not attempt a shot in the first half. Bryant tried offsetting his poor shooting accuracy by going 7-of-9 from the free-throw line and dishing off six assists. But Bryant also committed six turnovers and hit his lone field goal with 10:59 left in the game. Bryant sat nearly four minutes later. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “Your body won’t respond and you’re sick and you used to be able to fight through these things,” Bryant said. “I tried to lean on my teamamtes and, at the same time, be agressive and take shots. They didn’t go in.”The Lakers did not just lose their third consecutive game because of Bryant’s off night. It also involved the other factors the Lakers showed while Bryant posted a league-leading 27.5 points per game.The Lakers allowed San Antonio to shoot 10 of 22 from 3-point range. The Lakers allowed the Spurs to feature their normal cast of characters in Tim Duncan (13 points), Kawhi Leonard (12 points) and Tony Parker (11 points) as well as Cory Joseph (12 points). The Lakers shot 37 percent despite Jeremy Lin’s 15 points on 5-of-11 shooting, marking his fifth consecutive game he cracked double digits.But this game represented an unexpected twist. Carlos Boozer became the model of consistency, posting a team-leading 19 points on 8-of-13 shooting. Jordan Hill’s emerging jump shot evaporated, finishing with 10 points on a 4-of-13 clip. And then, of course, there is Bryant, whose illness became more head-scratching than his poor play. Kobe Bryant plopped down on a chair by his locker stall speaking with little energy and in muted tones.It turns out the Lakers’ star had far more pressing questions to answer than the Lakers’ 93-80 loss to San Antonio Spurs on Friday at Staples Center. Or why Bryant ended the game with a season-low nine points on only 1-of-14 shooting after providing the lone bright spot in the Lakers’ (1-8) worst start since the 1957-58 season in Minneapolis. Lakers coach Byron Scott already answered that question. “He wasn’t feeling too well,” Lakers coach Byron Scott said. “Nothing physically as far as a knee or Achilles, but he’s not feeling well.”The Lakers said Bryant has a probable viral infection. Bryant was hardly as forthcoming, only revealing that he was “feeling achy” on Friday morning. But Bryant sounded ominous when asked if this illness is something he could overcome.
Pedophile predator Jeffrey Epstein was never married and has no children, that he knew of, but he did have a “partner” socialite Ghislaine Maxwell.Maxwell may blow the lid off the house of cards by implicating those complicit in the pair’s sex trafficking.But right know the whereabouts of Maxwell are unknown.Maxwell is the British daughter of publishing tycoon Robert Maxwell, was a fixture in Manhattan high society. She had Ivana, Donald Trump, Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton as friends over the years.Eventually, Epstein became a cross between a boyfriend and a business partner with her even going so far as to calling her his “madame.”Was she the slave catcher who recruited children for Epstein’s sex ring and participated in such pedophilic encounters?A lawsuit before Epstein’s death accuses Maxwell of firsthand sexual abuse, not simply aiding and abetting Epstein’s predilections. Unsealed records from Virginia Giuffre’s testimonies against Maxwell are frankly too disturbing to relay here, but they make clear that while Maxwell prioritized using their victims to fulfill Epstein’s thrice daily sexual quotas, she used them for her own perverse pleasure.So Maxwell knows where all the bodies are buried. We just have to find her.Maxwell, who moved to Manhattan in 1991 after her father fell off a boat and died. She remained relatively unscathed after Epstein’s 2008 plea deal in Palm Beach County and was a tabloid fixture until Giuffre pursued a civil lawsuit against her.The suit was settled in the plaintiff’s favor. The settlement size remains undisclosed, but Maxwell’s legal costs lead her to sell her $15 million New York residence.As of 2017, her lawyers claim she’s likely in London, but given the threat she poses to Prince Andrew, that seems unlikely. The Daily Mail claims Maxwell is cooperating with prosecutors because securing Maxwell’s testimony is priority No. 1 for authorities attempting to find justice for the alleged victims.
This story is developing. A woman was hospitalized after being bitten by an alligator in Palm Beach County, Thursday morning.According to Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, the attack occurred around 10 a.m. inside the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee Wildlife Refuge.The victim, an adult woman, was taken to a local hospital with a leg injury.She was not a trauma alert, officials said.The unidentified victim’s condition and whether the gator has been captured is unclear at this time.

Powered by Firework From making astounding records to mesmerising the global audience with his stupendous batting, the legendary Sachin Tendulkar has graced the Indian cricket team for 24 years. The only batsman to have ever scored a hundred international centuries, Sachin’s contribution to the sport is indubitable. But did you know, the iconic run machine once wanted to hang up his boots and leave the pitch way before his retirement? Gary Kristen opens up on Sachin’s contemplation of leaving cricket, and how the former Indian coach helped prolong the Little Master’s career.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty/TwitterGary Kristen took the helm of Team India in 2008, and enjoyed a spectacular three year stint with the squad, which ended auspiciously at the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup, when India secured their second world cup trophy.However, it was the world cup of 2007, where India’s lacklustre performance and followed by a group stage exit made Sachin to walk out of the gentleman’s game, as he had revealed in his autobiography ‘Playing It My Way’.Advertisement However, the Master Blaster still had years of marvellous cricket left in him, and it was possible after the entry of Kirsten in the Men in Blue dressing room in March 2008. Recalling his days with the Indian squad and his memories with Sachin in talkSPORT’s ‘The Cricket Collective’ podcast, Kirsten revealed how the new aura in the Indian team after his arrival helped Sachin to keep on playing.“If I think of Sachin at that time,” the former Proteas batsman said in the podcast, “Where he was when I arrived in India… he wanted to give up the game. According to him he was batting out of position, he wasn’t enjoying his cricket at all.”Advertisement However, the Master Blaster decided to keep on playing for six years more until his retirement in 2013, during which he achieved his dream of lifting the prestigious World Cup trophy.Kirsten continued, “Three years later, he scores 18 international hundreds in three years, goes back to batting where he wants to bat, and we win the World Cup.”“For me, all I did was facilitate an environment for him to thrive. I didn’t tell him anything. He knew the game, but what he did need was an environment – not only him, all of them – an environment set up where they could be the best version of themselves,” the 52 year old added.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out MMAIndia.com Also follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comAlso read-Supreme Sacrifice: cricketers and sportspersons pay tribute to the martyred Indian soldiersGautam Gambhir: Virat Kohli doesn’t have the ability of ABD, Kallis or Lara!

By John BurtonSANDY HOOK — It’s been a rough few months as contractors, National Park Service staff and volunteers worked to restore the Sandy Hook national park to something approaching useable for visitors for the coming summer season.The work they are doing is paying off as park service officials have announced some of the park’s recreation areas will be available for use by May.Bathers enjoy the beach at Sandy Hook last season.According to the National Park Service (NPS), Gateway National Recreation Area at Sandy Hook, which sustained extensive damage from Super Storm Sandy in October, will be partially operational by the summer season. The park has been closed to the public since Sandy but will once again allow public access by May 1, NPS spokesperson Daphne Yun said.Park officials are also expecting to have three beach areas – Gunnison, North Beach and Area B – available for public use by Memorial Day weekend, Yun said.“Things are looking up here,” Peter McCarthy, Sandy Hook’s unit coordinator, said this week about the cleanup and restoration of the park and services. “We think we’re doing extremely well considering the circumstances a couple of months ago.”During the last few months, contractors and crews have been digging out some areas that had tons of sand piled up, including parking areas D and E, where the parking lots and structures were buried. “For all intents and purposes we’re almost all cleared,” in the two parking areas, he said. “We still have to do some work” on lot C.One of the major challenges facing the park service is getting the sewer system fully operational. In a press release last week, Yun said the site’s wastewater treatment plant is not expected to be completed by the end of May; beach areas will be serviced by temporary restroom facilities.“The sewer is our No. 1 challenge,” McCarthy said. He and his fellow workers spent more than two months without running water and had to use portable restroom facilities.Another significant challenge facing the park service continues to be the collection and removal of debris that was strewn on both the ocean and bay sides of the beach. Workers and volunteers have been cleaning up the remarkable amount found there, including typical items, such as timbers, which wash up every winter. Some of the more unusual finds have been a section of a bar and patio deck plus a couple of large metal Dumpsters that have made their way onto the beach.Along with that, the lifeguard stands have to be extracted from a rather inaccessible location where they washed up due to the storm surge, McCarthy said. A contractor will use a small crane to retrieve them.Work that still needs to be completed includes paving the roadways and bike/multipurpose path that buckled in numerous locations from the force of the water. Federal highway contracts will need to be awarded for that work. Once they’re awarded, “We’ll see great strides,” McCarthy said.Less certain will be the future of the Seagull’s Nest restaurant and bar and concession stands.While the NPS has assessed some of the damage to the building, it is waiting to receive a structural engineering study before repair work can begin. “We’re trying to figure out a plan for how we’re going to take care of visitors in regards to concession operations,” McCarthy said.Repairs are not expected to be completed by Memorial Day to the path and commuter ferry dock, located at the park’s Fort Hancock area, Yun said.The National Park Service has allocated $30 million for Sandy Hook repairs with the money coming from funds authorized by Congress and President Obama, Yun said. The money is being divided into five categories: $18 million for buildings; $5 million for beaches and trails; $3 million for utilities; $2 million for equipment; and $2 million for road repair.On top of that, the federal Department of Transportation is contributing another $5.2 million for road and multipurpose path repairs, Yun said.Gateway areas – Sandy Hook, Jacob Riis Park in Queens, N.Y., and Great Kills Park on Staten Island – were “hit especially hard,” Yun said.People should remember that “the federal government works differently than city government, the private industry,” Yun said. “If it felt as if it took a long time … we’ve actually moved along pretty quickly in the federal government sense.”The only other obstacle, she noted, could be the ramifications of the federal sequestration cuts.“All I’ve heard was that it’ll impact Sandy [recovery funding],” at some point, she said. “But I don’t know anything further than that.”

ARCADIA, Calif. (Dec. 26, 2015)–Favored Om got a perfect tracking trip under Gary Stevens and registered a confident, 1 ¾ length win in Saturday’s Grade II, $200,000 Mathis Brothers Mile (turf), as he negotiated a flat mile in 1:35.57.With Acceptance, ridden by Alonso Quinonez showing the way into the Club House turn, the Dan Hendricks-conditioned Om, a Kentucky-bred colt by Munnings, sat second throughout, took command at the top of the lane and repelled the challenge of runnerup Perfectly Majestic the final furlong.“The race set up perfectly for him,” said Hendricks. “He’s got the natural speed to be placed wherever Gary wants. We were either going to the front or going to sit second today, and it just worked out perfect.”Off at 6-5 in a field of 11 three-year-olds, Om, who is owned by the Sareen Family Trust, paid $4.40, $3.00 and $2.60. Third, beaten a half length as the 4-5 favorite in the Grade I Hollywood Derby at Del Mar Nov. 28, Om is now a perfect two for two at a mile on turf at Santa Anita and he improved his overall mark to 10-5-1-2. With the winner’s share of $120,000, he improved his earnings to $550,500.“He felt super today,” said Stevens, who has ridden him in his last starts, including victories in a pair of Grade II stakes, the Del Mar Derby on Sept. 6, and the Twilight Derby at Santa Anita on Oct. 24. “We got beat by a good horse in his last out in the Hollywood Derby and it just wasn’t his day down there.“Today, everything went perfect. We were rolling into the turn, I got to slow it down and he got a nice breather. He hit the after-burners at the eighth pole. There was a horse coming to him and he still had something left and he gave it to me.“The turf course here is superb. Santa Anita has done a great job with it.”Ridden by Kent Desormeaux, Perfectly Majestic rallied from far back for the place, finishing 4 ¾ lengths in front of Vigilante. Off at 23-1, Perfectly Majestic paid $14.00 and $7.40.Vigilante, who was ridden by Joe Talamo, was last after a half mile and rallied to overhaul pacesetting Acceptance by a half length for the show. Off at 8-1, he paid $5.00.The Mathis Brothers Mile, the second of four graded stakes on Santa Anita’s Opening Day, was carded as the sixth race on a nine-race program.
