Of course, they have to choose and most of the AD is there so they have two or three guys in there to guard him. Mostly kickouts from AD, then rotation and ball swing I get open,” Salva said.Salva scored half of his points in the third quarter that kept the Bolts within striking distance after the Aces took a 20-point lead.“I don’t know the final score of Nico Salva but it felt like he made every single shot that he took today. Nico was huge for them. I actually took a timeout to kinda yell at our guys and go, ‘I’m tired of Nico Salva just lighting us up. Are we going to rotate on the shooter or are we just going to let him shoot?” Compton said.Salva hopes to sustain his form in the pivotal Game 3 on Thursday night.ADVERTISEMENT Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Salva’s impressive performance was almost a surprise to everyone but his head coach Norman Black, who had seen it way too many times before.“I coached him in college so I’m kinda used to him being able to rise up in big moments, big games,” said Black.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back Chriss“He really helped us out with his perimeter shooting tonight and hope he can continue in the future games.

Broh Wants Mawah Clinic Closed

first_img‘Gen.’ Mary T. Broh, head of the presidential taskforce to beautify the city, has recommended to the Ministry of Health and the Medical and Dental Board the immediate closure of Mawah Clinic for its unsanitary environment.She told a team of Ministry of Health officials assigned to the taskforce that the clinic should be closed to enable the management to carry out a full cleanup exercise.Mawah Clinic is a well-known private medical facility in Vai Town, Monrovia, offering a wide range of medical services, from lab tests to surgery. Speaking to reporters shortly after a tour of the facilities yesterday, Madam Broh said it was unfortunate for the most famous Mawah Clinic in Vai Town to be filthy, with loads of trash including needles, testing kits and syringes.Madam Broh said improper disposal of needles, testing kits and syringes is dangerous for children and adults in the community.Broh said she wants health authorities to urgently intervene by closing the clinic until the management improves sanitary conditions at the clinic. “We were around the entrance of Mawah Clinic last week and I thought by now they would have cleaned the place and sanitize the facilities to give it a facelift, which the management has not done. This is the place that has doctors and nurses who have been to medical school but what is happening to sanitation and hygiene at the place is unknown,” she said.Madam Broh said the doctors and nurses at the clinic are very reckless in observing hygiene and other health related rules, which is precarious for those seeking medical attention there.“This is the place that thousands of Liberians and even foreign residents get healthcare services, and they need to have or observe good hygiene. With the present unhealthy condition, there is no need for anyone to seek medication at Mawah Clinic,” she said.Madam Broh said 99.9% of the Liberian population deserves better and regretted that there are people in the country who will like to see a permanent class of people in abject poverty so that they can hold on to their power base.“This will not happen because some of us are here to eradicate the problem. We will not have school cafeterias, milk facilities, among others, filled with maggots and worms,” she added.Madam Broh said she is back and will continue to work tirelessly to clean the city because “I believe in the beautification of Liberia, that all of us can live better and clean.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Pochettino “very disappointed” to be losing Tottenham chief scout Paul Mitchell

first_img1 Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino admits he is “very disappointed” by head of recruitment Paul Mitchell’s decision to leave the club.Mitchell was lured to White Hart Lane from Pochettino’s former side Southampton in 2014 and arrived with a reputation as one of the game’s sharpest spotters of talent.But the 34-year-old has reportedly become disillusioned by Spurs’ restrictive transfer policy, and has decided to quit his role in north London.Mitchell will remain in his post until a departure date is agreed, but his exit comes as a blow to Spurs ahead of their season opener against Everton on Saturday, and with three weeks still left of the transfer window.Pochettino, who worked closely with Mitchell at St Mary’s at White Hart Lane, said: “I feel very disappointed with his decision. It’s his personal choice.“You know that we have a relationship from Southampton. I’m very disappointed but when someone takes a decision and it’s personal, what can I do?“He’s still working with us and we still need to finish the three weeks working together and do the best business for the club.”Tottenham have signed Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen already this summer while other players to arrive under Mitchell’s watch include Toby Alderweireld, Son Heung-min, Kevin Wimmer and Kieran Trippier.Dele Alli was also brought in last summer but the midfielder had been on the club’s radar for some time and it was former Spurs manager David Pleat who was the chief orchestrator in the deal.Nevertheless, Pochettino revealed on Thursday that he attempted to convince Mitchell to remain at Spurs.“Did I try to persuade Mitchell to stay? I think it’s obvious that happened,” The Argentine boss said.“When you take your choice and personal things happen, there’s nothing to do other than respect his decision but carry on working.“Nothing has changed for the moment, this is most important.”Despite his chief scout’s departure, however, Pochettino is still keen to complete further business this summer.“Yes, maybe yes. We are open to add one or two players, or maybe no-one,” Pochettino said.“If we have the possibility to sign some players that can improve us, then we are open.“But I think it’s very difficult to find players with this profile because we already have very good players and because of the way we work and our philosophy.”last_img read more
