(AP Photo/Kamil Krzaczynski)Blake Griffin had this season’s highest-scoring game for all of about 24 hours before Stephen Curry bettered it — in just three quarters.Then, in Golden State’s next game, after Curry poured in 51 points in a rout of Washington, Kevin Durant scored 25 in the fourth quarter, the best total of his career, and finished with 41 in a victory at New York.ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines? Allen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title Just behind him on the scoring list is Antetokounmpo, but only because he was held to 21 points while playing a season-low 19 minutes after being evaluated for a concussion Saturday in a victory over Orlando. Before that, he’d started the season with 25 points and 15 rebounds in each of the first four games.He had a lingering headache and new symptoms Sunday, so he was re-evaluated, and the Bucks announced Monday he had been placed in the concussion protocol.In their first season under Mike Budenholzer, the Bucks were leading the league in rebounds per game, opponents’ field-goal percentage and scoring margin during their perfect start.OTHER GAMES TO WATCHNew Orleans at Portland, Thursday: The Pelicans’ first-round sweep was a painful end to Portland’s 49-win season.Houston at Brooklyn, Friday.

That comes after there were 13 50-point performances last season, with MVP and league scoring champion James Harden doing it four times, including a 60-point night.The increased emphasis on the 3-point shot and the league’s focus on allowing freedom of movement on the perimeter have opened up the offenses. Players who aren’t known as scorers can have big nights, and guys who were think they would have been unstoppable.“I’d average easily 35-40 points a game. Easily ,” two-time scoring champion Tracy McGrady said in a quote tweeted by the Orlando Magic. “I mean, I averaged 32 without even shooting that many 3s.”Curry has made at least five 3-pointers in every game, but even guys who don’t stray outside the arc are benefiting from it.“I know the uptick isn’t that great but what goes with the teams shooting so many 3s is it spreads your defense out,” Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. “So now you’re chasing those guys out to 4-point land and now that opens up driving.”ADVERTISEMENT Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Bucks’ Giannis, Raptors’ Leonard, to miss marquee matchup That’s usually how a guy like Griffin has traditionally gotten his points, but as he showed Philadelphia in his big night, his game also extends now into 3-point territory. Of course, so do Curry’s and Durant’s, and both are averaging more than 30 points.Can they both keep that up for an entire season?“Why not?” Curry said. “We’ll see.”MARQUEE MATCHUPA historic NBA matchup will take place Monday without its two biggest stars.Neither Kawhi Leonard nor Giannis Antetokounmpo will play when Toronto and Milwaukee, the NBA’s lone remaining unbeaten teams, meet Monday night in the first big game at the Bucks’ new arena.Milwaukee is 6-0 and can equal the best start in franchise history, set by the 1971-72 team. Toronto, also 6-0, is already off to its best start.It’s the first game in NBA history between teams that both enter with a record of 6-0 or better, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.But it lost much of its luster Monday morning when both teams announced their top players would be sidelined.The Raptors are resting Leonard, who was limited to just nine games last season in San Antonio while recovering from a thigh injury but has looked fully recovered so far while averaging 26.6 points for Toronto.

Eleven Nigerians including two children accused of using “fake” immigration documents in an attempt to leave the country, yesterday appeared before the Monrovia City Court on charges of forgery, illegal imposition of immigration’s documents and criminal facilitation.The charges were pressed by the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN).The incident took place early November, at the Yekepa port of entry, in Nimba County, where they were trying to make their way out of the country.Yesterday’s appearance was their second time at the Temple of Justice under heavy BIN escort.When they first appeared last Monday, they were made to sit all day on the prisoner’s bench, at the Monrovia City Court.They were later taken from the courtroom and placed in a parked BIN vehicle that drove them away.Apparently, they may have been ineligible for bail due to being classified as ‘escape risk’, and they were remanded to prison until yesterday.The crimes are baliable offence under Liberian law, however.The times they have appeared, at the City Court, not a single piece of luggage was even seen with them or in the vehicle that always drove them to the Temple of Justice.More besides, the BIN’s authorities have not been able to explain how long the Nigerians had lived in Liberia, or what kinds of activities were they involved into, while residing in the country.However, in an exclusive interview with BIN’s director for public affairs, Abraham Dorley, he said, during preliminary investigation, 10 of the accused pleaded guilty to the charges.They told the BIN’s investigators”Everything was done voluntarily; we acted upon the ordered of Vincent Okike Ago. We regret and we do apologize,” Dorley quoted his investigators.Ago is believed to be the main person behind the sale of fraudulent immigration documents in the country, according to the public affairs director.If the “fake documents” would have passed inspections, the 11 persons would have been able to leave the country legally.But, Dorley maintained that “luckily, the immigration officials processing the documents became concerned and made closer checked.”He continued with his explanation by saying, “It was during verification, they found out that the documents were forged, in an attempt to allow them “imposters” to get through immigration.”“When the officers took them aside,” Dorley claimed “questioned them, it was when they discovered that their documents were fake.”“They all admitted under interrogation that the documents were forged and that is when they were charged with the offense of traveling with fraudulent they are not entitled to,” Dorley further said.“It was how the immigration officers therefore charged them with possession of a fraudulent document for it,” the public affairs reiterated.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
FA Cup winners Arsenal take on Premier League champions Chelsea in the Community Shield and Gunners fans will be hoping for a repeat of last year’s performance at Wembley, when their side ran out comfortable winners over Manchester City. Check out all the goals from that game in the video above.
Premier League round-up: Stoke thump Bournemouth while West Ham rescue draw with another comeback 1 It was another action-packed afternoon in the Premier League on talkSPORT, as we bring you all the final scores from Saturday afternoon…Norwich City 2-2 West HamWest Ham produced the second stunning comeback in as many weeks as the plucky Hammers fought back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Norwich at Carrow Road.Slaven Bilic’s side were battered for most of the game as goals from Republic of Ireland forward Robbie Brady and midfield maestro Wes Hoolahan gave the dominant hosts a deserved lead with just over an hour played.But, just as against Liverpool in the FA Cup this week, West Ham refused to go down without a fight and battled back to rescue a point with two goals in two minutes courtesy of star man Dimitri Payet.The Frenchman celebrated signing a new contract by netting their first – on the rebound after Victor Moses’ initial effort was saved – and he then provided the assist for Mark Noble’s stunning equaliser – the Englishman finding the top corner with a wonderful curling drive – which sealed a share of the points.Bournemouth 1-3 StokeStoke City rise to ninth place in the Premier League table as they fired three fine goals past a spirited Bournemouth.The Potters, wearing a one-off all white third kit to avoid clashing with the hosts, were off to a flyer at Dean Court as record signing Giannelli Imbula opened the scoring after just nine minutes.The £18.3million man scored his first Stoke goal with a thumping first-time volley from outside the box, with Ibrahim Afellay doubling their lead after the break with another fine long-range finish to complete a quick counter-attack.German forward Joselu then scored within moments of his introduction to make it 3-0 just minutes later, but Bournemouth refused to fold in front of their home fans.Matt Richie, perhaps the Cherries’ best player this season, exhibited wonderful technique to volley past Jack Butland on 57 minutes, and while Eddie Howe’s men were the better team until the final whistle it proved too late to spark a comeback.Swansea City 0-1 SouthamptonSouthampton climbed to within a point of fifth-placed Manchester United with a slim victory over Swansea City.It was an even contest at the Liberty Stadium but it lacked quality up front as both sides squandered planet of goalscoring chances.The points were eventually won by Shane Long’s 69th minute strike, as Southampton sealed their fifth win in six games, and returning goalkeeper Fraser Forster kept his sixth consecutive clean sheet.Crystal Palace 1-2 WatfordTroy Deeney struck twice as Watford climbed to eighth in the Premier League with a 2-1 win at Crystal Palace, who ended the game with ten men.The Hornets captain opened the scoring in the first-half from the penalty spot after he was fouled in the box.January signing Emmanuel Adebayor then netted his first Palace goal, looping a close-range header over Heurelho Gomes and into the net, to level before on the stroke of half-time.But Deeney was the hero for the Hornets once again with a cool close-range finish in the 82nd minute to seal a brilliant win.And it got worse for Palace defender in stoppage-time, as Pape Souaré was sent off for a nasty two-footed challenge.Everton 0-1 West BromSalomon Rondon’s first-half goal proved the difference as West Brom scraped a slim 1-0 victory over a luckless Everton.It was a frustrating afternoon for the Toffees, who were the overwhelmingly dominant side but were eventually punished for their wastefulness in front of goal.The Baggies scored against the run of play as Venezuelan forward Rondon chested the ball over the line from Jonas Olsson’s header in 17 minutes.It was all Everton for the rest of the game, as the hosts registered 76 per cent possession and 34 efforts on goal.But only six of those were on target, and Ben Foster was in fine form in the Baggies net as Tony Pulis’ side clung on to claim their first win in six games.
The animated fairy tale “Hoodwinked” and the inspirational sports flick “Glory Road” topped a family-oriented box office for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend, according to estimates released Monday. “Hoodwinked,” an animated update of the Little Red Riding Hood story, debuted with $16.6 million in ticket sales over the four-day weekend while “Glory Road” was a breath behind with $16.5 million. A new Queen Latifah movie, “Last Holiday,” opened in third place with $15.7 million. The only other new movie to make the top 10 list was the romance “Tristan & Isolde,” which opened in eighth place with a gross of $7.9 million. “We’re getting mainly families with young children,” said Weinstein’s Mike Rudnitsky, senior executive vice president for domestic distribution. “We know our target audience. We picked a holiday weekend because people are always looking to take their family out and looking for a family film.” It was the second independently produced movie to make No. 1 in two weeks, after the horror film “Hostel,” from Lions Gate. Another PG-rated film, “Glory Road,” was in second place and made some $3 million dollars more in its opening than expected. The movie tells the story of how underdog Texas Western, fronted by an all-black starting lineup, beat the all-white powerhouse University of Kentucky to win the NCAA title in 1966. Critics praised its inspirational qualities but panned its cliches. Overall, the top 12 films grossed an estimated $125.4 million, down about 12 percent from last year’s $142.7 million. TOP MOVIES Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Monday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Exhibitor Relations Co. Final figures will be released today. 1. “Hoodwinked,” Weinstein Co., $16.6 million. 2. “Glory Road,” Disney, $16.5 million. 3. “Last Holiday,” Paramount, $15.7 million. 4. “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” Disney, $12.2 million. 5. “Hostel,” Lions Gate, $11.7 million. 6. “Fun With Dick and Jane,” Sony, $10.3 million. 7. “King Kong,” Universal, $9.2 million. 8. “Tristan & Isolde,” 20th Century Fox, $7.9 million. 9. “Brokeback Mountain,” Focus, $7.1 million. 10. “Cheaper by the Dozen 2,” 20th Century Fox, $6.8 million. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It was ranked No. 9 in ticket sales over the long weekend. In spite of – or perhaps because of – the controversy over its gay theme, “Brokeback Mountain” has done well in every market where it has played. “This film has everything going for it: the critical acclaim, the word of mouth and, of course, the seven Golden Globe nominations never hurt,” said Paul Dergarabedian, president of box-office tracker Exhibitor Relations. “Hoodwinked” received mixed critical reviews but its opening day was a financial triumph for a movie that was made for a relatively paltry $15 to $20 million. Weinstein Co. hoped to expand its showings this week to as many as 3,000 screens. The movie was held back to January so it would not have to face the big Christmas-season releases such as “King Kong” or “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” which was fourth for the weekend and has now grossed more than $260 million.

15 March 2013Growth of black owners in the South African property market has more than doubled in the last 10 years, according to the 2013 Property Report by property data provider Lightstone.The report found that this change had yet to be reflected in the rest of the property market.“Despite this, it is interesting to note that black ownership in the luxury property market – properties valued at R1.5-million or more – has more than doubled to 7.8% from 3.3%,” managing director of Lightstone, Andrew Watt, said in a statement.“This is clearly attributable to the increasing spending power of the middle- to upper-income black consumer; however it should be noted that this originates from a small base where the volumes remain marginal.”Watt also said that South African property ownership patterns generally had shifted over the years.“Looking at the market as a whole across all races, it is interesting to note that female-only ownership has increased over the last 10 years – even slightly outstripping male-only ownership,” he said.“As a result, the market is now fairly evenly divided between female-only, male-only and properties co-owned by both genders.”According to the report, female-only growth is highest in the black population; if the affordable/township market is excluded, however, black female-only ownership is in line with trends in the white community.“The South African property market has been through a difficult period over the last five years, but it is heartening to see that even with the introduction of the National Credit Act and more stringent lending conditions, we are continuing to see transformation in the owned-property market,” Watt said.SAinfo reporter
Use subclips in Adobe Premiere Pro to pull selects and better organize your projects!It’s often best to break your footage up into smaller clips so you can organize, and then locate, specific shots in your project. This is especially true for interviews, where you may need to locate a specific quote quickly without any visual cues to find the shot. This is where subclips in Adobe Premiere Pro come in!While you could set In and Out points and then drop those parts on to the timeline this isn’t the most efficient way way to work. Instead, work through your footage, breaking each clip down into smaller subclips. Assign each subclip a unique name that makes it more easily identifiable in the project. For example, the footage in the below clip is called ‘Lakes_Animals’ which is ok, but there are several animals in this clip. When breaking this clip out into smaller subclips, it would be best if I gave each subclip a name that appropriately represents the animal (or insect) in that particular shot.So how do I do create subclips in Adobe Premiere Pro?First, double click the footage in Premiere to open it in the Source Monitor. Set an In point and an Out point for the piece you want to subclip out.Source Monitor with In & Out pointsOnce you have your In and Out points set out there are several ways to create your sub-clip.Click on the ‘Clip’ menu and choose the second option ‘Make Subclip…’.Right click the Source Monitor and choose ‘Make Subclip…’ from about a third of the way down.Hold the Control key on a PC or the Command key on a Mac and drag the clip to the Project Panel. You will get this option:Subclip renaming optionMake sure you use this to give the subclip a name that actually means something to you! For example, if it were part of a long interview, use a title to express what the subject was saying. This makes it more easily searchable for when you want to find it and add it to the timeline later. Searchability is key!Re-named Sub-clip & Original Clip with In & Out Points RemovedHave any Adobe Premiere Pro workflow tips to share?We want to hear from you in the comments!
