Lyons leads Furman to stunning upset of No. 8 Villanova The victory extended Djokovic’s record to 35-2 since the start of Wimbledon, a tournament he began ranked 21st after a right elbow injury interrupted his first half of the season.“It’s remarkable what he’s done since Wimbledon,” Anderson said. “It seems like he’s definitely right back playing some of the best tennis of his career.” Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next MOST READ Zverev overcame the freak interruption to establish a 5-4 lead in the tiebreaker, and Federer netted the simplest of forehand volleys to bring up match point.He saved the first, but Zverev confidently put away a backhand drive volley to set up a shot at the biggest title of his career and leave Federer waiting until next season for his 100th title.“Overall, I’m happy how the season went,” said Federer, who picked up his 20th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open. “There’s many positives. So I’m excited for next season.”Despite having reached only one Grand Slam quarterfinal this year, Zverev is the only active player outside the Big Four of Djokovic, Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray to have won three Masters titles. But victory at the tour’s flagship event would exceed those achievements.“Novak right now is the best player in the world,” said Zverev, who lost to Djokovic in the round robin. “You have to play your best game to even have a chance. I hope I’ll be able to do that tomorrow.”The Serb maintained his record of having not lost a set — or service game — at the tournament as he thrashed debutant Anderson to give himself the chance to join Federer on six titles.“I played very well in the group stage against Sascha (Zverev),” Djokovic said. “But I don’t think he was close to his best.”Djokovic won 20 out of 27 points on Anderson’s second serve as he broke the South African twice in each set.“It was the best match I’ve played so far this week,” Djokovic said.Having ended a two-year Grand Slam title drought by defeating Anderson in the Wimbledon final, Djokovic went on to win his 14th major trophy at the U.S. Open and has already sealed the year-end No. 1 ranking.

You don’t need to apologize to me here. Congratulations on a great match and a great tournament so far. All the best for the finals.’ And you move on.”An inspired series of shots earned Zverev the first break points of the match in the 12th game and Federer sent a forehand wide to fall behind.Federer willed himself to a break for 2-1 in the second set, but Zverev quickly composed himself to hit straight back in the following game.ADVERTISEMENT El alemán Alexander Zverev celebra tras vencer a Roger Federer en semifinales de la Copa Masters de la ATP en Londres el sábado, 17 de noviembre del 2018.

…Public Health Ministry finding it “tough” to monitor situationThe prevalence of misuse of Over the Counter (OTC) drugs continues to affect the services being provided at regional hospitals and health facilities mainly because persons are using them as a practice of self-medication – more often than not exacerbating their health conditions.Guyana’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr Shamdeo PersaudThis is according to Guyana’s Chief Medical Officer (CMO), Dr Shamdeo Persaud, who told Guyana Times on Monday that while self-medication is a “no-no”, a number of persons who simply purchase OTC drugs end up using medications that do not treat their conditions; in fact, the wrong medicinal drugs lead to them developing additional symptoms/illnesses.“The Ministry of Public Health provides licences for two categories; the first being for pharmacies and it is mandatory that a pharmacist always be on duty, while the second category is for patent shops. There is a separate permit here and they are limited to what they sell. However, some of them actually sell prescription drugs and, therefore, it becomes harder for us to monitor, quite tough for us to do so,” Dr Persaud said.Dr Persaud explained that due to the fact that some patent shops are selling medicinal drugs for which they are not allowed, they do not need to be provided with a prescription from a patient/customers, and this results in strong medication being misused and even damaging someone’s health.To make the situation worse, there are some folks who are friends with pharmacists and even doctors whom they approach for prescriptions without actually being tested to determine if those medications are what they actually need, he explained.In such cases, some individuals can have allergic reactions to ingredients in those drugs and this, in turn, can result in the loss of lives, the CMO elaborated.OTC drugs are medications available without a prescription at drugstores or supermarkets and are typically safe if used at recommended doses. However, like illegal and prescription drugs, they can also be abused. Although less potent than other substances, OTC drugs still pose a risk for developing an addiction.Abusing OTC drugs can lead to health problems including memory loss, kidney failure, heart problems and death. OTC drugs have various medical uses and effects, from treating mild pain to motion sickness. Some abuse OTC drugs to self-medicate for mental illnesses like anxiety and depression. Abusing these medications can also give users a euphoric “high” or hallucinations. Any use outside of what is recommended is considered abuse.Some commonly abused OTC medications include: cough medicines (Dextromethorphan, or DXM), cold medicines (Pseudoephedrine), and motion sickness pills (Dimenhydrinate).

0Shares0000Neymar is ready to lead Brazil’s bid for glory in Russia © AFP / NELSON ALMEIDASOCHI, Russian Federation, Jun 16 – For three months, a whole nation feared it might not happen, but Neymar will take to the field with his Brazilian teammates when they kick off their World Cup campaign against Switzerland on Sunday.The world’s most expensive player appears to have recovered fully from the fractured foot that required an operation in March, with the only slight concern being his possible lack of match fitness. Since suffering the injury in Paris Saint-Germain’s game against Marseille in late February, Neymar has managed just 129 minutes on the field.But those minutes came in Brazil’s recent warm-up friendlies, with a goal from the bench against Croatia and then a brilliant strike in a win in Austria last weekend.“After three months, and having played just a game and a half, he is already playing at a high level. Nobody expected that. Not even him,” Thiago Silva, a close friend of Neymar’s and a club teammate at PSG, said in a report on Brazilian website Globoesporte.The 26-year-old, who saw his time on the sidelines as one of the lowest points in his career so far, has looked in excellent spirits this week as Tite’s Brazil squad settle into their Russian base — the speculation about his club future, and links with Real Madrid, seem far away right now.– Home from home –Neymar has been laughing and joking with his teammates on the training pitch in the Black Sea resort of Sochi, and took time to sign autographs and pose for pictures with supporters at an open training session on Tuesday.Neymar talks with Thiago Silva, his close friend and PSG teammate, at Brazil training in Sochi © AFP / NELSON ALMEIDAHe will be in the starting line-up in Rostov-on-Don, for what will be his first game at a World Cup since being taken off with a fractured vertebra in Brazil’s win against Colombia as hosts in the 2014 quarter-finals.And Neymar’s importance in this new-look team — he is one of only six survivors from four years ago — is clear from the comments of his teammates in Sochi.“Neymar is great, thanks to God,” goalkeeper Alisson replied to one question about their talisman, while Gabriel Jesus spoke of his admiration for the former Barcelona man.“I got to know Neymar personally at the Olympics. He treated me very well, and not only me, also my family and friends too,” he said.“He is important off the field as well. He is always giving advice. That is very important. I really believe that having a good relationship, considering one as a brother, lifts you on the field. You run more for your friend.”Brazil came to Russia among the favourites as they look to put firmly behind them the 7-1 semi-final humiliation against Germany four years ago.While fellow contenders Spain have threatened to implode with the sacking of coach Julen Lopetegui on the eve of the competition, Neymar and the Brazilians are relaxed and at home in pleasant surroundings in Sochi.The lush green coastline and sea views are reminiscent of Brazil, the Selecao have been enjoying dining with views out over the Black Sea, and they also have access to the beach.It augurs well for Tite’s side as they prepare to face a Swiss outfit ranked sixth in the world in their first Group E game before tackling Costa Rica and Serbia.Winning a sixth World Cup is the objective, but Neymar will also have personal aims.Last weekend he scored his 55th international goal, moving level with Romario in Brazil’s all-time list. There are now only two players left ahead of him.A great tournament and he could catch Ronaldo’s tally of 62, before eventually targeting the 77 scored by Pele.“I would say that it’s going to happen. Neymar doesn’t just have playing well as an objective, he is always looking to score goals,” Ronaldo, in Russia on media duty, told Brazilian television.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

At another location on Greening Avenue, police found the house highly fortified, Ramos said. Commercial-grade aluminum covered the windows. The house had wrought-iron security doors, and surveillance cameras on three of its four sides. The cameras were constantly monitored in a room inside, Ramos said. When agents demanded entry to the house, a man answered the door but resisted arrest. Police would not say how he resisted, but they had to use force to take him into custody. They would not say what type of force was used, but he was taken to a hospital before going to jail. At that house, they found no drugs and one gun, said Ramos. Six people were arrested for charges including a parole violation, being under the influence of drugs or alcohol, having previous arrest warrants and drug sales. Though no drugs were found at two locations, as a result of previous surveillance police will charge some people they arrested for selling drugs. “They were all involved in the sale of narcotics,” Ramos said. “At this level of narcotics sales, you find a handful of guys who have the larger amounts of narcotics – that could be several ounces to a half-pound or more – that’s street-level type. “Branching off from those, you have a network of runners who deliver for those people, and people who purchase from those suppliers and then sell on their own. It branches off. It’s like a family tree. These people were selling small and large amounts of narcotics.” In the afternoon, police searched two locations and found three-quarters of a pound of meth and a large amount of cash, presumably from drug sales, Ramos said. Four people were arrested on suspicion of selling drugs. By the end of the day, investigators had taken 12 people into custody, and all are suspected of being a part of the same drug ring, Ramos said. email@example.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Local narcotics investigators, federal Drug Enforcement Agency officials and agents from the bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives searched five houses Friday, arresting 12 people and recovering about a pound of methamphetamine and two guns during a 16-hour operation. “The investigation began two and a half months ago after we got information from confidential sources that narcotics and guns were being sold,” said Whittier police investigator Kevin Ramos. Those arrested Friday are suspected of buying and selling drugs to each other, he said. Federal agents worked with local investigators to watch the locations for the last three months, and also to go undercover to buy drugs from the suspects.

The other two locations were searched in the afternoon. Officers surrounded the houses, guns drawn. They banged on doors and announced their presence, telling everyone inside the houses to come out. Then, they went in. Communicating with hand signals, they searched rooms, large equipment, garages and vehicles looking for anyone who might be hiding. Everyone they found was taken outside and handcuffed during the searches. After everyone was taken out, detectives went in with drug-sniffing dogs to search for drugs and guns. At a house on Acapulco Drive, Whittier police Detective Jim Yule searched a pickup truck parked in the driveway.

Calls have been made for a full safety check on the river wall on Ramelton’s Shore Road after it partially collapsed last week.A large section of the wall was swept away by high tides on Wednesday last, leading to fears that more sections and parts of the nearby road could also erode away. An emergency council motion was raised by Cllr Ian McGarvey on Tuesday asking for the issue to be urgently addressed.Cllr McGarvey said that the entire wall was suspect, the wall is too low and barricades in the area are a present danger.“Don’t tell me youngsters won’t be up at the barricades,” Cllr McGarvey warned the local authority.Donegal County Council is due to send Piers and Harbour staff to Ramelton this week to begin reinstating the collapsed wall when tides are more favourable. The repairs are expected to take a number of weeks. Cllr Liam Blaney also questioned the height and safety of the wall and called for checks on the entire structure. “It is a very dangerous situation,” Cllr Blaney said.The council said the existing wall will continue to be monitored.
