first_imgNews PeruAmericas March 31, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist beaten up by 15 policemen, told to shut up February 10, 2017 Find out more RSF_en Reporters Without Borders today protested against the beating which journalist Víctor Abel del Castillo Saavedra of TV Sur Canal 9 and several friends received on 26 March in a public square in the southeastern city of Cuzco from 15 policemen after being told to disperse and to stop talking.”We condemn the violence and cowardliness of this assault by state agents, and the simultaneous harassment of the victim, and we hope the police involvement does not mean it will go unpunished or the case will dropped,” the press freedom organization said, calling on the police to take the appropriate disciplinary measures.Del Castillo was in Nazarenas square in Cuzco conversing with several friends when five policemen told them to disperse. As they were in a public place, they refused to comply. Five minutes later, 10 more policemen arrived and all of the police began to beat Del Castillo and his friends violently in front of everyone in the square. Del Castillo sustained several bruises.Even if it has not been established that the assault was premeditated or linked to Del Castillo’s work as a journalist, the police threatened him with reprisals if he “continued to talk.” The Instituto Prensa y Sociedad (IPYS), a Peruvian press freedom organization, believes that this threat alluded to his investigation into the alleged payment of bribes to journalists to praise Cuzco mayor Carlos Valencia Miranda.

Elgin Baylor statue to be unveiled at Staples Center on Friday

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersWhen the Lakers first announced Baylor would become the fifth Lakers player to receive a statue, joining Magic Johnson, Jerry West, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Shaquille O’Neal, Lakers coach Luke Walton described Baylor as “Kobe before Kobe, Jordan before Jordan.”Baylor retired in 1971 after posting career averages of 27.4 points and 13.4 rebounds.He went on to a career as the head coach of the New Orleans Jazz and then as the Clippers’ vice president of basketball operations from 1986-2008.Over the course of his 13 seasons as a player, Baylor became an 11-time All-Star and was selected to the All-NBA first team 10 times. He was the 1959 Rookie of the Year and his No. 22 jersey is retired inside Staples Center.Many would argue that a statue of Baylor outside the arena is long overdue. On Friday, that wait will end. “I don’t know how I’m going to react or anything once I see it,” Baylor told the Southern California News Group in January, “because nothing like that has ever happened before. But I’m sure that I will enjoy it.”HOMAGE GAMEKyle Kuzma did not know when he wore a Nick Van Exel jersey into Staples Center on Wednesday that he was about to join Nick the Quick in Lakers history.“I actually just picked it up at a vintage shop,” Kuzma said. “And I saw it and I was like, ‘I’ve got to get it.’ So came in with it, hear people like it.”Behind Kuzma’s 30-point barrage, the Lakers beat San Antonio 122-112 to sweep the season series against the Spurs for the first time since 1997-98. That season, Van Exel was one of four Lakers to make the Western Conference All-Star team, averaging 13.8 points and 6.9 assists.That summer the Lakers traded Van Exel to the Nuggets, thus ending the tenure of a popular point guard.Van Exel is now an assistant coach with the Memphis Grizzlies.FRYE BALLChanning Frye played the best game of his brief Lakers tenure on Wednesday, pouring in 19 points in a season-high 26 minutes. He shot 8 for 9 from the field, but all he heard about after the game was his one miss.“I told him he’s not allowed to dunk anymore,” teased Walton, Frye’s teammate at the University of Arizona.With 11:12 left in the fourth quarter and the Lakers trailing by four points, Tyler Ennis dumped a pass to Frye in the paint. Frye then rose for the dunk but watched it rim out.“You could tell by the windup he had no chance of making that,” Walton said, continuing the bit.Even rookie Josh Hart joined in, perpetuating the running gag in the Lakers’ locker room of tracking missed dunks. Usually, it’s the young guys, Kuzma and Lonzo Ball, who are the targets.On Wednesday, it was the 34-year-old Frye.“He should have shot a layup,” Hart said. “It was funny because after that he made that 3 that hit the top of the backboard and fell in and I turned to him and said, ‘Stick to that.’”Still, Frye’s contributions were wholly appreciated throughout the locker room. Walton said Frye was “huge” against the Spurs and Hart called him “a true professional.”“When he’s on the court and the amount of talking, that’s why it’s nice to have some vets out there,” Walton said. “Sometimes he doesn’t shut up, but it’s good on the court because he’s talking out every play, every coverage and it just makes it easier when you’re out there.”Frye will be a free agent in the summer, and a breakout game like the one he had on Wednesday might signal to teams that he still has some value on the court and could potentially help a team in his 14th NBA season.“If nobody knows what I can do,” Frye said, “then I probably won’t go to that team.”One wrinkle of Frye’s time with the Lakers is that he has played exclusively power forward since arriving in a trade from Cleveland, a position he hasn’t played since earlier in his career.“I haven’t guarded a center since I’ve been here,” Frye said.As for the dunk-that-wasn’t, Frye laughed it off.“If I miss one dunk, I don’t care man,” he said. “I’m gonna shoot it again. It’s just one of those things that happens, it’s funny. I’ll make fun of myself before anybody, so I’ll take it.”center_img The first great Los Angeles Lakers star will become the latest to receive the ultimate symbol of L.A. sporting achievement on Friday, when a statue honoring Elgin Baylor is unveiled outside Staples Center.Baylor, 84, will be honored in a public ceremony at Star Plaza prior to the Lakers’ game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Baylor will speak, as will former teammates and colleagues.The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m., with the statue expected to be unveiled at 6:20 p.m.The No. 1 pick in the 1958 draft, Baylor made the move with the Lakers from Minneapolis to L.A. in 1960, and that first season he averaged a career-high 34.8 points and 19.8 rebounds per game.last_img read more

Cobb disappointed after failing to complete La Salle’s 3rd set rally

first_imgCobb then replaced Saga and was tasked to close out Ateneo, but one of her sets to Kianna Dy was off and that allowed Maddie Madayag to respond with a block for Ateneo’s 25-24 lead before Tolentino scored the 26th point for the Lady Eagles.“Of course I’m disappointed with how I played because that would’ve been a miracle if we completed the run,” said Cobb. “I wasn’t able to follow through so it all boils down to my actions and emotional stability as a player.”La Salle head coach Ramil De Jesus was aware of his setter’s shortcomings in the third set, and he told Cobb to learn from her mistakes in the endgame.“I told Michelle that when we won in our previous games she showed that she wanted to win, but when we lost she let the team lose,” said De Jesus in Filipino. “She’s the pilot of this team, so it’s up to her wher she’ll bring this team.”“In the first two sets she was really calm and in control, but in the third set she couldn’t display the finishing ability. I told her that it’s in those crucial times that she’ll get that emotional strength,” added De Jesus.ADVERTISEMENT LOOK: Iya Villania meets ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ cast in Mexico LATEST STORIES Cobb seemed to have reflected on De Jesus’ words and treated her late-game collapse as a challenge to become as a better player.“Coach told me that I had a good start but then I wasn’t able to finish it off, which I know is a wasted opportunity,” said Cobb. “But I’ll take it as a challenge.” Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Open Trans-Tasman 2018 – Mixed Open Game 1 Report

first_imgThe Australian Mixed Open team have come from behind to take a 1-0 lead in the 2018 Open Trans-Tasman Series in Rotorua.It took six minutes for the Touch Blacks to open the scoring with Nat Turner diving over after applying sustained pressure on the Aussie line. The Australians immediately hit back with stalwart Michael Singh finding Ron Hanson Medallist Elin Mortimer with a precision long ball for her to fittingly score the opening touch down for the visiting team.While the first points took some time to come for both teams the game quickly opened up from there. The Kiwis scored again in the 8th minute and shortly after should have made it 3-1 with Bayley Waudby unable to take advantage of the opportunity spilling the ball over the line. It proved to be a costly error as the Aussies marched up the field and levelled the score at 2 apiece through Leah Opie-Lukins.Every time the Aussies drew level the Kiwis just as quickly edged clear and at 4-3 in favour of the home team and with only minute in the opening half a pair of sublime hands from Leah Percy provided Zara Nicholas with a first half hat-trick and a 4-4 score line.The second half started just as the first did with New Zealand opening the scoring and resuming their position in front. With 15 minutes remaining Touch Black’s Ifor Jones interferred with a certain Australian try and earned himself a period of time for his efforts. The Aussies made him pay scoring off the second play but again failed to hold out the Touch Blacks with the Kiwis taking back their lead and the score to 6-5.The teams traded tries again before Lachlan Hoch drew the scores at 7 all with 3 minutes remaining left. This time the Aussies wouldn’t allow the Kiwis to get back the lead and with just 60 seconds left the visitors hit the lead for the first time in the match through Dylan Thompson and held on in the dying stages for an impressive come from behind 8-7 victory.last_img read more
