Mahomes takes Kansas to its first Super Bowl in 50 years

first_imgThe Kansas team wins the San Francisco 49ers 31-20The young quarterback shines in the final leg of the match After an advanced 15-game fight, Mahomes himself carried the ball to a diagonal yard for a touchdown and with the extra point of kicker Harrison Butker the ‘Bosses’ took control of the game 7-3. The Kansas City had to opt for the field goal Butker’s 31-yard to increase his lead to 10-3.Missing five minutes to halftime, San Francisco achieved a touchdown who tied the game 10-10. Garoppolo connected on a TD pass with Kyle Juszczyk. The kicker Gould completed the play with his field goal. The San Francisco defense was closed with a minute and a half left for halftime and Kansas City could not take advantage of its offensive series.San Francisco then opened the third quarter with the joy that Colombian Shakira and Jennifer Lopez left in the environment at the halftime show and took the lead 13-10 with a Gould field goal of 42 yards.The Californian team then pressed the accelerator when Raheem Mostert threw the ball into the end zone from the 1-yard line to go up 20-10, with 2:35 remaining in the third quarter. At the beginning of the last quarter Mahomes was intercepted for the second time in the game, in a play that could have cost Kansas City the game.Mahomes goes into a tranceMahomes trying to redeem himself approached little by little until yard 1 (he went 82 yards in nine plays) and with a pass to touchdown He connected with Travis Kelce and the ‘Chiefs’ approached 20-17. Kansas City then closed its defense and the San Francisco boys could not complete their offensive series with five minutes left.Mahomes in nothing got five yards from where he later connected with Damien Williams for a touchdown and Kansas City went up 24-20 with 2:44 minutes to play. Then San Francisco lost its offensive opportunity and those from Kansas scored another touchdown through Willliams, who ran 38 yards to finally win the match 31-20. With another excellent performance by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, the Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 on Sunday and proclaimed themselves the NFL Super Bowl 54 champions.Mahomes completed 26 of 42 passes for 286 yards and two touchdown, which earned the ‘Bosses’ to break a 50-year drought without winning a Super Bowl. Marshal Mahomes frustrated the 49ers’ attempt to win a sixth Super Bowl trophy. Jimmy Garoppolo, Marshal of the 49ers, was left wanting to reach a third ring of the Super Bowl, the first as a starting quarterback since the previous two managed to replace Tom Brady in the Patriots.The Chiefs, named MVP of the game, continues to electrify the League with his mobility, arm power and a variety of passes. At 24, Mahomes came once again from behind, since with the adverse score 24-0 in the second quarter against Houston in the Divisional Series he ended up winning 51-31. Mahomes became the second youngest quarterback to win a Super Bowl.Good start of the 49ersThe Chiefs failed to complete their first offensive series starting the game and the 49ers took the ball with an organized attack led by Garoppolo to approach 30 yards from the desired zone. However, they couldn’t complete it, but they had the option of kicking the ball for a 38-yard Robbie Gould field goal and going up 3-0.last_img read more

When will Ramjattan finally accept ministerial responsibility and resign? (Pt 2)

first_imgDear Editor,I am pleased that Prison Director Gladwin Samuels, a young professional for whom I have tremendous respect, has been able to identify and get rid of five of the corrupt prison wardens involved in the smuggling of contraband into these prisons; for he is often expected to manage the prison population with insufficient resources and personnel.You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that basic requirements to secure any prison facility are high-definition surveillance systems and the use of full-body scanners at the entrance of every prison facility. Whatever the cost, these security measures must be procured and installed immediately; the Prison Director should not have to wait on the 2019 Budget to get this done. All Minister Ramjattan needs to do is to come to Parliament with a Supplementary Budget. Government does this all the time for far less urgent matters.Since 2015, the state of the economy has declined rapidly; over 25,000 jobs have been lost, and higher taxes have been imposed on the people. For most families, there is little or no disposable income left after paying utility bills, rent/mortgage, and living expenses. The lack of jobs and high cost of living may be tempting some to engage in criminal activities to provide for their families. After all, desperate people are known to do desperate things.On June 29, Minister Ramjattan got his face on the front page of the Guyana Chronicle with a caption that shamelessly reads, “Gov’t makes ‘half-a-mil’ in pay-outs”.  The article covered the presentation of a one-off payment by Government of a meagre $100,000 each to five families of Guyanese fishermen who were brutally murdered by pirates off the coast of Suriname. But this was done only after the PPP had brought a Motion in Parliament urging the Government to offer financial support to these families, for Ramjattan had made it clear to them in Suriname that they should expect none.It would have been kinder if Government had increased this amount to $300,000 each, the estimated cost of a decent funeral. Nevertheless, I’m sure Minister Ramjattan was happy to be seen in a positive light at a time when just about everyone questions his ability to get the job done. How many more victims must be shot? How many more lives must be lost? How many more cars stolen? How many more businesses must be robbed? How many more Guyanese must be discouraged from returning home? How many youths must be forced into a life of crime? And how many more families must be deprived of their life’s savings before the Hon Minister of Public Security realises that he has failed to protect the Guyanese people, and is totally unsuitable to serve in that capacity?When will Minister Ramjattan finally accept ministerial responsibility and resign? Will he ever?Sincerely,Harry GillPPP Member ofParliamentlast_img read more

Security officer found murdered in guard hut

first_imgA security officer attached to the Cummings Electrical Company Limited was found dead in a guard hut on the business premises on Sunday.Dead: Keegan BostonThe now dead man, identified as 60-year-old Keegan Boston of Lot 520 East Ruimveldt Housing Scheme, Georgetown, was discovered with a wound to the back of his head.Reports are that the man was last seen alive about 23:00h on Saturday while executing his duties at the company’s Garnett Street, Campbellville location.However, Boston was found dead in the hut about 06:15h on Sunday by an electrician attached to the company in the presence of another security guard who was supposed to relieve Boston of his duties.According to the security guard, he realised something was amiss when he kept calling out to Boston for him to open the gate, but he did not get a response.After several minutes, the electrician decided to scale the fence and made the gruesome discovery.An alarm was raised and the Police were summoned to the scene. Boston’s body was taken to the Lyken Funeral Home, where it was presently awaiting a post-mortem.Crime Chief, Deputy Police Commissioner Lyndon Alves told Guyana Times on Monday that no one has been arrested for the alleged murder.He stated that the detectives who are tasked with investigating the man’s death were yet to report whether or not they have been able to retrieve Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) footage from the security cameras at Cummings Electrical Company.However, the Crime Chief noted that while there were reports which suggested that the security cameras were not functioning at the time of Boston’s demise, the Police still have to pursue every angle possible in determining if the man was murdered and the motive.Some staff working at the company had told the media that those security cameras had not been functioning for a while and, therefore, there would be no footage that could be retrieved that would help the Police in their investigations.Investigations into the matter continue.last_img read more

Pochettino upbeat on Spurs despite Man City defeat

first_img0Shares0000Mauricio Pochettino hopes to lead Spurs back into the Champions League ahead of a move into their new stadium next season © AFP/File / Ben STANSALLLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 16 – Mauricio Pochettino said Tottenham’s performance against Manchester City gave him confidence for the future despite a heavy defeat that ended his side’s long unbeaten Premier League run.Spurs were beaten 3-1 at Wembley on Saturday before Manchester United lost to West Brom the following day, confirming City as Premier League champions for a third time. It was Tottenham’s first taste of defeat in the league since losing to Pep Guardiola’s side in December’s reverse fixture, a run of 14 league games, but Pochettino, whose side are in fourth spot, saw the positives.“After 14 games unbeaten, it was a massive, massive run for us,” he said. “We played Liverpool, United, Arsenal, Chelsea and 14 games unbeaten I think the players deserve full credit.“We are disappointed but not frustrated or sad because when we increased our level and showed our real quality we showed we can compete against Manchester City — the best team in England.“That is why I am not concerned about the future. Yes, it was 20 minutes where we were really poor but I am not worried because I think the team competed really well.”Spurs lead fifth-placed Chelsea by seven points and can stretch that to 10 with victory at Brighton on Tuesday.“Top four is our challenge and target,” said Pochettino. “It is to finish top four and provide the club next season with the Champions League in the new stadium, that is our target.”Pochettino has hinted that Toby Alderweireld could be brought out of the cold for the visit to the south coast.The Belgian defender has not been involved in any of the past three matchday squads. His future at the club looks increasingly bleak, having not played in the Premier League since October.Captain Hugo Lloris will also keep his place despite goal-costing errors in the past three games, including giving a penalty away against City.“For me Hugo Lloris is, from the day that we arrive here, improving every season,” said Pochettino. “For me today he is one of the best ‘keepers in the world and for me there’s no doubt.”Danny Rose is still missing with a calf injury while Harry Winks remains in Qatar as he recovers from an ankle injury.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Autopsy set for mother of rapper Kanye West

first_imgWest was taken to the hospital after being found unconscious in her Playa del Rey home. A Centinela Hospital spokesperson told “Access Hollywood” that West “was unresponsive and in cardiac arrest” when she arrived at the hospital. “They tried to revive her and were unsuccessful.” The doctor who performed the surgery, plastic surgeon Dr. Jan Adams, told TMZ that he did nothing wrong. He said the death was unforeseen and could have been caused by a heart attack, pulmonary embolism, or massive vomiting. As for Aboolian’s assertion that he refused to conduct the surgery because of a medical condition that West had, Adams said “(Aboolian) is sleazy and manipulating the truth to elevate his own importance.” Donda West spent about 30 years at Chicago State University, rising to English Department head, but left teaching to manage her son’s career. She appeared on “Oprah” and other shows to talk about her life, raising her son and teen literacy. Over the past year, she was head of the Kanye West Foundation, which is aimed at keeping inner-city youths in school. She also recently published a book, “Raising Kanye: Life Lessons from the Mother of a Hip-Hop Star.” The rapper professed a close relationship with his mother and dedicated a song to her: “Hey Mama.” West raised her son alone after her husband left when Kanye was 3. In a statement, the rapper thanked everyone for the outpouring of support and kind words that have come in from across the country. “After working in higher education for 31 years, Dr. Donda West and Kanye West co-founded the Kanye West Foundation with the mission of helping to combat the severe dropout problem in high schools across the country,” according to the statement. “The first and signature initiative of the Kanye West Foundation is Loop Dreams,” the statement continued. “Designed to capitalize on students existing interest in hip-hop, Loop Dreams challenges students to learn more about what’s behind hip-hop culture in order to help them develop skills, express themselves creatively and be empowered.” In lieu of flowers, the family asked that donations be made in Donde West’s name to the Kanye West Foundation/Loop Dreams Teacher Training Institute. Donations can be made by visiting the Foundation’s Web site, www.KanyeWestFoundation.org or by mail at Kanye West Foundation, 8560 W. Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90069. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! A Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Dr. Andre Aboolian, told “Access Hollywood” he refused to perform the surgery on West just weeks before her death because of a pre-existing medical condition. “She was interested in some cosmetic procedures, and we had discussed that in order for her to go through with the procedures, which she was a good candidate for, she needed what’s called a medical clearance, which just about anybody over the age of 40 is required to have,” he said. “Because of Donda’s age, she was required to get some cardiac clearance to make sure her heart is in good shape to go through for the surgery.” He said that although she was a “good candidate” for the surgery, “she had a condition that was of concern.” He did not reveal the specifics of the condition, citing patient confidentiality. An autopsy scheduled for today in Los Angeles could determine whether the mother of rap star Kanye West died of complications from cosmetic surgery. Donda West, 58, was pronounced dead at 8:49 p.m. Saturday at Centinela Freeman Regional Medical Center. The autopsy will include an inquiry into whether she died from “possible complications of surgery,” said Lt. Fred Corral of the Los Angeles County Department of the Coroner. The celebrity justice Web site TMZ.com reported that West underwent a “combined procedure” that included a breast reduction and tummy tuck. last_img read more

Homeless solution still elusive

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Tony Bell, a spokesman for Antonovich, whose 5th District includes the Santa Clarita Valley, said discussions on future shelter sites were ongoing. “We appreciate the cooperation and support that we’ve received from the city, and we look forward to continuing our conversations regarding the shelter for next year,” he said. “But any speculation on that would be putting the cart before the horse.” Antonovich selected for a second time the county Department of Public Works yard on 21190 Centre Pointe Parkway for the 40-bed shelter after Castaic residents in October rejected plans to stage the facility at Pitchess Detention Center’s visitor’s parking lot. Castaic, Stevenson Ranch and parts of Saugus and Canyon Country lie outside of city limits. The proposal faced stern opposition from residents northwest of Santa Clarita. They worried the shelter would increase crime in Castaic neighborhoods, despite assurances from sheriff’s officials that it has not been the case at past shelter locations. SANTA CLARITA – With the county’s decision to locate a temporary winter shelter this year on a maintenance lot within Santa Clarita city limits, city officials contend they’ve fulfilled current obligations as far as hosting the facility for the next two years. The nonprofit Santa Clarita Community Development Corp. is busy readying the shelter for the Dec. 1 opening. But the deal struck between the county and the city of Santa Clarita to rotate its location between the two jurisdictions – an attempt to provide stability to the program – remains mired in politics. Citing an Aug. 1 letter from county Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich, a Santa Clarita official said Monday the emergency winter shelter should be staged at an unincorporated county site when it reopens next year. The letter proposed “alternating locations” – the county on odd years and the city for even years. “We are assuming, since it has been in the city for the last two years, next year it will be in the unincorporated areas,” city spokeswoman Gail Ortiz said. The facility opened at the equipment yard last Christmas Eve when the Santa Clarita City Council turned the shelter out of the Via Princessa Metrolink Station after local residents complained. About 77 used the shelter at different times before it closed March 15, the SCCDC said. The city had hosted the shelter for seven winters until the City Council opted instead to fund homeless transitional services. “The supervisor and his office experienced what the City Council has dealt with for several years,” Santa Clarita Mayor Cameron Smyth said. “You always have the issue of finding a site that fits the needs and has access to public transportation, that doesn’t cause problems for the neighbors. It’s a challenge every year. “The important thing was to find a site, and find a site before the weather really turned.” Officials have argued it’s up to the county to provide homeless shelter services as one of the agencies behind the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority. “It is the county’s responsibility to do it, much like libraries are a county responsibility,” Ortiz said. “They have an L.A. County homeless bureaucracy. Over the years, we’ve struggled like they’ve struggled. We want to help them, but overall, it is their responsibility.” Asked if the deal between the city and county remains intact, Oritz said: “That will depend what the City Council decides to do.” “That we’ll have to figure out next year – if it’s still in the city next year or go back to the county. Those are things that can be worked out,” Smyth said. Santa Clarita Councilman Bob Kellar, who has opposed staging the emergency shelter in the city, said he was disappointed the facility was back. “I continue to believe that the city be involved in providing some level of service for the homeless,” he said. “I do not believe that we have yet the particular course of action to meaningfully help homeless people.” Kellar said the arrangement between the city and county is “as good a system as we can fairly come up with at this time,” but it doesn’t address what he believes is a larger social issue. “There is homelessness throughout this country,” he said. “To put up a winter shelter – it’s a course of action to address the situation for today, but it really is not resolving the issue. … There needs to be better outreach into society into understanding how this comes about.” Eugene Tong, (661) 257-5253 eugene.tong@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
