But the Lakers couldn’t put together a strong enough package to the Pelicans’ liking for the All-Star forward, who will go back into the trade market after the season ends. There will be other marquee names available then with a free agent class that could be highlighted by players such as Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Kawhi Leonard.Boston didn’t jump into the trading deadline fray but may try to get involved in the summer.For now, the Celtics appear to feel they have enough to win the East.The other conference contenders looked for upgrades — and went out and got some that likely will fit well.Milwaukee (40-13) already has the NBA’s best record and Mirotic’s outside-shooting ability for a big man would appear to fit perfectly in a lineup around superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo.ADVERTISEMENT Two games back of the Bucks, the Raptors sent center Jonas Valanciunias to Memphis to acquire Gasol. Valanciunas had been coming off the bench and Toronto coach Nick Nurse will have to decide whether he uses Gasol in the same manner, or returns to a traditional bigger lineup with the former defensive player of the year in the middle.“(Gasol) is one of the best fives in the league for a long time now, perennial All-Star, Defensive Player of the Year,” Raptors guard Fred VanVleet said. “Just really excited to see how we can acclimate him to what we do and see how much he can give us a boost. Obviously we’re very excited about that.”The 76ers have made two major trades during the season, previously getting Jimmy Butler from Minnesota before the deal to bring in Harris, Boban Marjanovic and forward Mike Scott.“We understand the team invested a lot in us,” Harris said. “It was a big move. It was a win-now move. That means a lot. This is already a winning culture and we look to bring our games to it and help as best we can.”All of those clubs feel they improved their chances to be the first East team to reach the NBA Finals without LeBron James since 2010.Things were quieter in the West, where there were no upgrades by teams currently in playoff position. The Clippers currently hold the eighth and final spot but appear willing to give it up in favor of positioning themselves for the summer, with their moves designed to help them pursue two top free agents in July.But the Golden State Warriors or teams pursuing them can still bolster their squads by adding players who are free agents. Players on rosters of another team must be waived by March 1 in order to sign with another team and be eligible to appear in the postseason.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title The Raptors are getting former All-Star center Marc Gasol from Memphis.

The failure of Judge Chan-Chan Paegar of the Commercial Court to make available a hardcopy of his five minute oral ruling on the “pop drink” infringement lawsuit that was brought against Housseni Kessell, a Lebanese businessman, has caused Paegar serious troubles at the Supreme Court. For this mess up, Cllr. Tiawan S. Gongloe, a lead lawyer for BAF, has laid a complaint against Judge Paegar at the Supreme Court.The infringement case was instituted by BAF Trading Corporation, a Liberian owned entity, against Kessell, owner of HK Enterprise, the Liberia Industrial Property Office (LIPO) and the Ministry of Commence (MOC).They were accused of allegedly facilitating Kessell to obtain a trademark certificate, which was already issued to BAF in 2010 as the sole distributor of the product “pop drink” on the local market for 20 years.The lawsuit was intended for Judge Paegar who happens to be one of the three-judge- panel mending the court to declare BAF’s rights as legitimate and original owner of the trademark.BAF obtained the trademark certificate from both LIPO and MOC, the lawsuit claimed.But BAF’s request was denied by Judge Paegar when he orally announced a ruling into the matter on August 5 of which a written copy remains a mystery.When he ruled orally, Paegar publicly informed the parties (BAF, HK Enterprise, LIPO and MOC) that he was not prepared to give them the hardcopy of the decision, because, according to him, it would be attached to his final judgment which would been written and presented to the parties through their respective legal counsels on August 8 three days after his decision.Although, Paegar’s ruling still under appeal, he has authorized the Lebanese businessman to continue with the importation of the pop drink on the market for which the ministry has issued him an Import Declaration Permit (IDP).That Judgment was seriously contested by Cllr. Gongloe, who is the lead lawyer for BAF and subsequently appeal to the Supreme Court.Judge Paegar up to present is yet to make available the written final judgment, which failure prompted Cllr. Gongloe to complain to the Supreme Court.In a complaint for a “Writ of Mandamus,” Gongloe argued that “after his oral ruling, Judge Paegar has refused, failed and neglected to produce to us his written final judgment that would provide the required opportunity and enable us to file our Bill of Exception and to file other legal requirements under the law.”Mandamus is a writ which orders a public agency or governmental body to perform an act required by law when it has neglected or refused to do so.The document named appeal bond and notice of completion of appeal as some of the requirements Cllr. Gongloe was finding it difficult to file to the Supreme Court, without the written final judgment.Further to his complaint, Gongloe alleged that he had written Judge Paegar informing him about the delay he had caused their case by refusing to produce his written version containing his final judgment which, according to Gongloe, was making it impossible for him to file the Bill of Exception and undertake the other necessary legal steps to complete the appeal process.“”A copy of the said self-explanatory letter was served on the two other judges, one of them Chief Judge Eva Mappy Morgan,” the Gongloe said in his complaint.“The refusal of Judge Paegar to produce his written ruling and judgment, up and including the time of filling of this complaint, has been impossible and impracticable for me to file the Bill of Exception and to perform all the other necessary duties to complete the appeal process, which is tantamount to my client being denied his right to an appeal in this particular case,” Gongloe said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
An investigation has been launched by the Maritime Administration Department (MARAD) following the discovery of a submerged vessel at Hampton Court Seawall, Essequibo Coast back in 2018.The boat was reportedly found by a group of fishermen whose net had come into contact with a large object. The vessel, Comte Nazildo, was subsequently brought to shore.The fisherman, Prem Lall, of Sparta Essequibo Coast, who is the owner of a fishing boat “God Speed”, claimed that he was returning from sea when the discovery was made.The men dived under water to cut the net when they found the boat. The following day, the men returned to the location using a GPS system and towed the boat they discovered back to shore.The matter was reported; however, to date, no one came forward to claim the boat. As such, the Police reported the matter to MARAD and an investigation was launched. This came to light after a report was published in another section of the media where it was highlighted that the crew of the sunken vessel may be missing.
Donegal is not a ‘grey’ area when it comes to its squirrels!The All Ireland Squirrel Survey 2012 has found that only red squirrels can be found in counties Donegal, Tyrone, Fermanagh, Leitrim and Sligo.The findings are in dramatic contrast with the rest of the country where the grey squirrel is ousting the red squirrel. According to Dr Michael Carey, who helped conduct the survey, there has been a dramatic increase in grey squirrels since 2007 but not in Donegal.“The grey squirrel is a major threat to the survival of the native red squirrel and to the future of broadleaf trees. Recently there have been reports of two cases of the pox virus in Co Wicklow and another in Antrim. The disease is lethal to the native reds and carried by grey squirrels.“With the increased planting of broadleaf trees over the last two decades, woodland owners and the public need to be vigilant with regard to the threat posed by grey squirrels and on the extent to which they can destroy vigorous healthy trees through bark stripping and eliminate red squirrels.“The new survey aims to pin point the most vulnerable areas in the country and ensure strategies are in place to minimize further tree damage and spread of the pest,” he said. Sightings can be easily recorded on a form on www.woodlandmammals.com. Hard copies of the form are also available from Ms Margaret Flaherty, Mammal Ecology Group, Martin Ryan Institute, NUI, Galway.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain believes England’s potential and age profile will allow them to finally establish an identity.A long season comes to a close on Tuesday evening at the Stade de France, where Euro 2016 runners-up France are the opposition in a glamour friendly.It is a chance for Gareth Southgate to try new things against one of the world’s best teams as the England manager looks to create a side capable of fighting for major honours.The Three Lions boss is trying to tweak the culture around the squad and Oxlade-Chamberlain believes this group can flourish with the right direction.“You heard (Southgate) say there ‘we need a clear identity on the way we want to go forward’,” he said.“For me and all the squads that I’ve been in, this has been the one where we’ve really tried to focus on that and tried to get a real clear understanding of how we want to play and how we want to behave between each other on and off the pitch and really get that togetherness.“I think we’ve really got a good opportunity with this squad, with it being so young with a few really good characters that are senior as well.“We’ve got a really good chance to build something special from the moment moving forward, so for me that’s been the most positive step forward.”Oxlade-Chamberlain came off the bench to open the scoring in Saturday’s 2-2 draw in Scotland, continuing the fine form he has shown with Arsenal in recent months.The 23-year-old ended an otherwise frustrating campaign as an FA Cup winner, but would not be drawn on Arsene Wenger signing a new deal at the Emirates Stadium.However, Oxlade-Chamberlain was more forthcoming when asked how Southgate and his manager at Arsenal compare.“Obviously they’re different managers, Gareth’s a lot younger – that’s something that is the main, most obvious difference,” he said.“But they’re both great managers and Gareth’s obviously really well connected, especially with the younger players.“I guess that’s similar to Arsene as well.“(Gareth) really likes to work with younger players and clearly – just like Arsene – gives the younger players a chance and gives them the platform to go on and hopefully do good things.“They’ve got their differences for sure, but they’re similar in certain aspects as well.” 1

Most Popular Premier League Stories smart causal silverware Leo Bonatini (Wolves) – £5million Liverpool news live: Klopp reveals when Minamino will play and issues injury update There is a lot of speculation about the Ivorian’s future now but if he stays with the Eagles he may well be a shoo-in for a lot of managers. He’s had two brilliant seasons in a row, even with breaks through injury, so could finally go above 150 points if he remains fit. What every Premier League club’s fans dream of this Christmas The injury problems are a worry but he still managed eight goals and two assists last term. If he stays fit he could finally get into double digits in the Premier League and bag you a lot of points. Tottenham predicted XI to face Brighton with Mourinho expected to make big changes The Fantasy Premier League season is set to kick off and we’ve got goals on the brain.You’re going to need some sensational strikers in your squads if you want to rack up the points this term.However, if you want the most expensive stars, like Mohamed Salah or Harry Kane, you might need a cheap and cheerful signing to help you afford them. Every current Premier League club’s best kit from the past decade possible standings We’ve already selected our pick of the cheap goalkeepers, defenders and midfielders available to you.But what about the all important strikers? Find out which bargains we’ve found below. SORRY 10 10 Wilfred Zaha (Crystal Palace) – £7million The Bluebirds may have a tough time staying in the Premier League but Zohore is likely to give one or two defences a problem this season. He netted nine times in the Championship last season and claimed five assists too. At the moment he will lead the line for the Welsh side this summer so he’s perfect for your bench. Cenk Tosun (Everton) – £7million Kelechi Iheanacho (Leicester City) – £6million The Nigerian is a very tempting prospect. He had plenty of games at the end of last season and looks sharp in pre-season. Whether he starts regularly is still in doubt but he’s keeping us on our toes and giving us a selection headache. BIG PRESENTS UP TOP 10 10 Chris Wood (Burnley) – £6.5million He’s back banging in the goals in pre-season so it appears the Austrian is set to pick up where he left off last year. His 144 points came through 11 goals and seven assists, he may well be the perfect all-round forward – but watch out for his early fixtures. Marko Arnautovic (West Ham) – £7million Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham) – £6.5million gameday cracker Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT latest The average first-team salaries at every Premier League club in 2019 Now he’s at Fulham, the Serbian star has become a prime target. He’ll be an excellent initial buy but may need to be transferred if too many managers pick him. Sky Sports presenter apologises for remarks made during Neville’s racism discussion 10 10 With the newly promoted side doing plenty of transfer business this summer, this is one to keep a keen eye on, especially since the signing of Raul Jimenez (£5.5m) on loan. If he’s the starter, though, we’re definitely on board with this signing. In 29 starts and 14 substitute appearances he scored 12 times and made five assists, so should weigh in with a few in their Premier League campaign. 10 Callum Wilson (Bournemouth) – £6million revealed Slow and steady wins the race sometimes. You may not have realised but the New Zealand’s sporadic scoring saw him net 10 times, despite only playing in 24 Premier League games. He’s one to keep tabs on bearing mind he’s got a battle for places with Sam Vokes and Ashley Barnes. Probably the best thing Sam Allardyce did at Goodison Park was ease the Turkish striker into action after his January move. In the end he managed five goals and 55 points in 984 minutes of action. He could do very well this time if Marco Silva uses him appropriately.
After only minor training following his World Cup exertions for Brazil, Willian came on as a substitute in Chelsea’s 2-0 Community Shield defeat to Manchester City.And following the Wembley clash, he insisted his future remained in west London as he targets more trophy glory.“I’m happy here,” he told Chelsea TV. “I’m happy to play here at Chelsea so I’m looking forward to playing well and win titles. 1 Chelsea midfielder Willian in action during the Community Shield.

We go for it this season.”Willian has confirmed that Barcelona made a move for him but a switch to the Nou Camp has never been on the 29-year-old’s mind.“I always made it clear that what I wanted was to stay in the club,” he said, speaking to ESPN Brasil.“The only club I knew that really made an official offer for me was Barcelona.“But I have my head here and I intend to continue in the club unless the club wants to sell me. But my head is here in the club.” Chelsea star Willian has reiterated he is happy at Stamford Bridge, despite a summer of speculation about his future.The Blues winger has been linked with moves to Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United this off-season but appears intent on playing a big role in new manager Maurizio Sarri’s plans.
