Defense wins games for GlobalPort in streak

first_imgPhoto by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netHe may have shot the lights out on Friday night, but Sean Anthony said that the credit for GlobalPort’s 101-76 rout of Blackwater should go to his team’s defense.“We held them under 80 points and that was the key,” said Anthony, who ignited the blowout with his 6-of-10 shooting from beyond the arc to finish with 22 points, 21 coming in the first half, alongside seven rebounds, five assists, and two steals in the 25-point victory.ADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina LATEST STORIES Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

We’ve got some time to get better, so we’ve got to keep working on our weaknesses and continue to get better every day,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT View comments OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Newsome sets focus on helping Bolts open new PBA season on right track Michael Porter Jr. stays patient as playing time increaseslast_img read more

Nzoia hand Wazito fourth consecutive loss

PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, May 27- Elvis Rupia’s 12th goal of the season began the onslaught as Morven Otinya and Victor Omondi scored late to hand visitors Nzoia Sugar a 3-0 win over Wazito FC at the Camp Toyoyo ground on Sunday evening sending the sugar millers fifth in the Kenyan Premier League standings.Wazito who are in their debut season of top flight football were handed their fourth consecutive loss but still remained pegged at 14th in the standings. After a slow start to the game, Nzoia brought the game to life in the 19th minute with Rupia striking a superb belter into the top left after picking the ball at the edge of the area off a mistake from Wazito.Prior to that, the visitors tested Philip Odhiambo early in the 10th minute with Kevin Juma making a swift turn off his marker at the edge of the box but his shot went straight to the custodian’s arms.After the goal, Nzoia increased their tempo and their fast paced game proved to be a problem for Wazito.Wazito FC’s Joakim Omollo attempts to go past Nzoia Sugar’s Festus Okiring during a Kenyan Premier League match at the Camp Toyoyo ground on May 26, 2018.

Two minutes later, he turned provider heading the ball into Omondi’s path to head home off a corner.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Vioxx product liability trial opens

first_img“Mrs. Doherty, as you’re going to hear, had seven of the nine risk factors for heart attack,” and was taking seven prescription drugs besides Vioxx to control her diabetes and heart disease before her heart attack, Sullivan said. She gave her entire opening argument standing next to a posterboard graphic labeled “Mrs. Doherty’s Heart” over the words “Severe Atherosclerosis,” or hardening of the arteries. A drawing of the plaintiff’s heart – with clogged arteries marked as 100 percent, 90 percent and 50 percent blocked – filled most of the poster. Sullivan disputed Pettit’s claims that Merck minimized the risks of Vioxx, saying it notified doctors – through letters, its sales representatives and a medical journal report – when a 2000 study showed more heart attacks among Vioxx patients than patients taking another painkiller. Sullivan also questioned the credibility and potential bias of numerous witnesses expected to be called by the plaintiffs, and said Pettit “cherry-picked” in showing the jury “out-of-context” excerpts of internal Merck e-mails written by top company officials. Those e-mails blasted FDA scientists for wanting to put a strong warning on the drug and urged that doctors raising safety concerns be “neutralized.” Testimony in the trial, which is expected to last about a month, began late Monday with a videotaped deposition by Dr. Eric Topol, taken last November when he was head of cardiology at the Cleveland Clinic. Topol said that the cardiovascular risks of Vioxx were evident since 1999 and that “patients with heart disease were not tested in any meaningful way” by Merck, even though up to half the people in studies leading to the drug’s 1999 approval had heart disease. Merck, which now faces more than 13,000 Vioxx-related lawsuits over its one-time $2.5 billion-a-year blockbuster, has vowed to fight them one by one. Merck has lost three trials so far, with juries awarding multimillion-dollar verdicts in each. The company plans to appeal those losses.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – Drug maker Merck & Co. repeatedly tried to downplay the cardiac risks of its painkiller Vioxx, so user Elaine Doherty didn’t know about them before she suffered a heart attack after taking the drug, her lawyer told jurors as a product liability trial began Monday. The company in its opening statements countered that the plaintiff, a diabetic grandmother of seven, had a variety of health risks that caused her to be stricken. “If anyone was going to have a heart attack, it was Mrs. Doherty,” said Merck attorney Diane Sullivan. Doherty, who had been taking Vioxx for arthritis for 2 years, blames her January 2004 heart attack on the drug. Merck withdrew Vioxx from the market on Sept. 30, 2004, saying its own research showed it doubled risk of heart attack and stroke after 18 months’ use. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2However, Doherty attorney Jim Pettit said that after Vioxx was launched in 1999, Merck pushed the Food and Drug Administration to put new data about the drug’s cardiac risks in the precautions section of the detailed package insert, rather than in the more-prominent warnings section. Merck calculated that placement would hurt sales less, and the Whitehouse Station, N.J.-based company then scrapped plans for a study of the drug’s cardiac safety, Pettit said. Doherty, a 68-year-old Lawrenceville homemaker, had been working hard to reduce her risk factors for heart trouble, her lawyer said. Between the late 1990s and 2003, she lost 90 pounds, cut her cholesterol level in half and sharply lowered her blood pressure and blood sugar level, but Vioxx added another risk, Pettit said. Merck downplayed that risk in an April 2002 letter to doctors, including Doherty’s, he said. “There was a 510 percent increased risk that Elaine Doherty would have a heart attack because she was taking Vioxx,” Pettit said, pointing out his client, her husband, Daniel, and their daughter in the courtroom. “Vioxx was one substantial contributing factor” in the heart attack, and that is all the plaintiffs have to prove, he said. “Give Elaine and Dan justice, no more and certainly no less.” Sullivan, whose team won the first Vioxx trial in New Jersey, told the 10 jurors that Doherty’s efforts to improve her cardiac health were “too little, too late” and that heart risk factors don’t go away. last_img read more

SHAY GIVEN: INJURY SHOCKED ME – BUT NOW I’M READY FOR IRELAND

first_imgSHAY Given has admitted he was surprised how long his recent injury kept him out of football – but insists he is ready for Ireland’s forthcoming internationals.Given hurt himself in the warm-up ahead of a Europa League tie in February, an injury that kept him out for a number of weeks and saw him miss Ireland’s Euro 2012 home qualifier with Macedonia in March.“I thought it was minor,” he said. “I didn’t even think I needed an operation until I got the scan. So I always thought I’d get back before the end of the season, I knew that it wasn’t a big thing in comparison to the other shoulder (which he dislocated last year).”After spending most of this season on the bench, the Lifford man admits that he is welcoming the chance of some game time for his country in the upcoming Carling Nations Cup.“I haven’t played enough football so the chance to play two games and the training around it will be of great benefit to me. I don’t feel match-sharp playing with Ireland if I’ve not had so many games, and I have to be as ready as possible for Macedonia.”Damien Duff is injured for the Euro 2012 clash with Macedonia on June 4, while Richard Dunne ruled out through suspension, so Given accepts that his experience will be needed in Skopje. “Richard is a huge loss,” admitted Given. “He’s been one of our best players the last few years. He’s a big leader at the back, and it’s a big loss for us. They showed in Dublin that they’re a good team, so it’s a massive test for us.“I suppose, for the experience side of things, it’s probably important that I’m there.”Shay – the ultimate professional – is refusing to discuss possible new clubs in the summer.Liverpool, Arsenal and Celtic have all been linked with him in recent weeks.SHAY GIVEN: INJURY SHOCKED ME – BUT NOW I’M READY FOR IRELAND was last modified: May 17th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

TOURISM BOSSES SAY DONEGAL CAN CONTINUE TO WOO VISITORS

first_imgThe news that the tourism industry had experienced a bumper July has given the Donegal tourism industry a huge boost. County Manager Seamus Neely says Donegal has so much to offer visitorsA number of surveys this summer have all concluded that this summer is shaping up to be one of the best tourism seasons in almost a decade for the county.And the most recent news coming from online travel agent, EBookers.com, that Donegal ranked number 1 in a nationwide poll with a staggering increase of 800 per cent in bookings is certainly evidence that County Donegal is fast becoming Ireland’s favourite holiday destination. Welcoming the news, Seamus Neely, Chairman of Donegal Tourism Ltd and Donegal County Manager said he is absolutely delighted that Donegal has seen an influx of holidaymakers this summer.“It is my view that Donegal has a fantastic range of visitor products. We have some of the best Hotels, B&B’s and Guesthouses in Ireland. We have more Blueflag Beaches than any other County in the Country, and most important of all, we offer a high quality tourism product at very competitive rates.“I would like to praise the excellent work of Fáilte Ireland, Donegal Hotel Federation, Donegal Self-Catering Association, B&B Ireland, and all of the Small and Medium Sized Enterprises that have really come together this year to ensure that Donegal’s tourism product is as competitive as any on the Island of Ireland.“I think it is important to recognise the contribution of the Elected Members on Donegal County Council for their continued support for the tourism sector. It is our ambition that the rest of the year will be as successful as the last number of months. There are still plenty of reasons to visit Donegal this summer and autumn.” Donegal County Council launched a new destination tourism website – www.govisitdonegal.com in February 2013, began an intensive marketing campaign aimed at the staycation market in April. GoVisitDonegal.com saw an extraordinary increase of 463% in visitor traffic in July, with many users searching for information on beaches, accommodation and festivals or events.The €104,000 advertising campaign targeted the key visitor markets in Belfast, Dublin, Cork and Galway, through a range of outdoor billboards, bus advertising in the capital and an intensive national radio and print campaign. The campaign was funded by Donegal Local Development Company and Inishowen Development Partnership under the LEADER element of the Rural Development Programme.Tourism Development Officer, Kevin O’Connor added it is clear that Donegal has benefited from the heatwave in July.“However, I think it is worth noting that while the weather was an attraction for many people, there were certainly other factors in making Donegal the number one choice for holidaymakers in 2013.“Our festivals and events programme, marketed under the Gathering and Donegal Gathering Brands has been second to none. Big ticket events such as the Earagail Arts Festival, Feile An Grianan, the Donegal Rally, Letterkenny Live, A Taste of Donegal Food Festival are major attractors for visitors. That is not to forget the hundreds of community-driven events and gatherings that have really added to the annual festival calendar. “We have also benefited from our partnership work with the City of Culture team, and our trade have been very astute in creating innovative packages around the big events happening in Derry this year. “TOURISM BOSSES SAY DONEGAL CAN CONTINUE TO WOO VISITORS was last modified: August 15th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:County Managerdonegal tourismSEAMUS NEELYtourismlast_img read more
