This time, the Cavaliers were much healthier than when they beat the Raptors on March 21 despite missing five rotational players and coach Tyronn Lue.Jose Calderon added 19 points and Kevin Love 18 points and 15 rebounds for the Cavs, who are 9-1 since March 17 despite not having all their pieces. James still isn’t sure what the postseason may bring for Cleveland, which has eliminated Toronto in each of the past two postseasons.“We don’t know what we can become,” James said. “We have no idea. But right now we’re playing good ball and we want to try to continue that. But we don’t know what we can become. We have not been whole all year.”DeMar DeRozan scored 19 and Jonas Valanciunas 17 for Toronto, which will host Boston on Wednesday. The Raptors didn’t quit and scored eight points in 34 seconds before the Cavs put it away with four free throws. Kyle Lowry scored only 5 on 2-of-11 shooting.The Raptors are just 3-5 since winning 11 straight from Feb. 26-March 16.“Right now we’ve got to find our rhythm on both ends of the floor, whether it’s offense or defense,” coach Dwane Casey said. “That’s slip-sided away on us. We’ve got to get that back. We’ve got five games to go. We’ve played some of the best teams in the league, but we’ve got to find our identity and get back to being who we are.

From what I’ve seen, it looks like everybody has rolled their sleeves up and just waiting for the day he comes back so they can get to work.”UP NEXTRaptors: Host Boston on Wednesday.Cavaliers: Host Washington on Thursday.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Redick, Simmons star in Philadelphia’s 11th straight win Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Conor McGregor seeks to emerge from controversy in UFC comeback Cabuyao City rising above the ashes through volunteerism Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award MOST READ Recto seeks to establish Taal rehab body to aid community, eruption victims Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew View comments In Liverpool, Man United sees the pain and path to recovery “We’ve bounced back the entire year.

But acting coach Larry Drew, who has gone 8-1 while filling in for his boss since March 19, doesn’t expect there to be any “feeling out” period when Lue comes back.
0Shares0000Nairobi County Senator Johnson Sakaja joins Major Kariuki and his family during the launch of the Josiah Gathura Kariuki memorial Tournament. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 24 – Josiah Gathura Kariuki was your normal bubbly, jovial and quite playful 18-year old, moving about life and keeping his passion for football alive, every weekend hustling his dad to drive him to training.He had dreams not only of being a good footballer and probably going pro, but was also set to travel to the United Kingdom to study Business and Economics. But on a chilly morning on May 3, 2017, the dreams drowned in a pool of blood and with the biting bang of a bullet, Josiah took his own life with his father’s gun, at their home, in a bathroom.“It was one of those incidents that we never saw coming. Josiah was your normal kid; very agile, focused, hard working and everything was going on well for him. He looked like he was well into his way to the future. We couldn’t suspect anything,” his father, Major (Rtd) Michael Kariuki, Safaricom’s Head of Security told Capital Sport.What they did not know is that Josiah, who had previously struggled with depression, had come to his tether’s end. He had had enough with life and in the thick of the moment decided enough was enough.Major Michael Kariuki and his wife Kathy Kariuki during their interview at the Capital FM offices. PHOTO/Sam WanjohiDevastating news. His parents had been away on vacation in London and as soon as the news reached them, they cut short their trip. Josiah was admitted in intensive care but couldn’t hold on to his young life.The bullet, shot at close range with his father’s Ceska gun, had ripped through his head.“We knew that he had been dealing with depression and we had put in good support structures and had even retained a counsellor for him. But the thing about depression is that it pushes you to a corner that you feel obliged to fight back in a way that shows you as strong,” the retired Army Major further explained.For struggles that he had fought with for a while, the thick of the moment, the flicker of an eye, he was pushed to the extreme. Suicide.“As a parent, you ask yourself, why didn’t I see it happen? Could I have done better to prevent it?” his step mother Kathy Kariuki said.As the family commemorates one year since the unfortunate events, they have made a decision to help out other families and young people who might be headed to the same direction by putting up a two-day football event, Josiah’s first love.The Josiah Gathura Memorial Foundation Tournament at the Impala Ground on Saturday and Sunday will attract a total of 50 teams from the Under-18, 19 and 23 men’s category and an open women’s category for a prize money of Sh225,000.Major Michael Kariuki addresses guests during the launch of the Josiah Gathura Kariuki memorial Tournament. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“Soccer is a very popular sport and therefore we felt it would be a good avenue to use to mobilize many young people and bring them into one space then together with mental health professionals influence them,” Major (Rtd) Kariuki noted.“Soccer was Josiah’s first love and we decided to use it because he loved the game and this will be a good memory for him,” he added.He has also hinted there are plans to have the tournament played across all the counties and probably more than once a year as they seek to alleviate the suicide problems as well as create awareness for mental health.“There’s a lot of stigma around the issues of mental health and no one wants to talk about it. The young men especially feel as though it is weak to come out and say ‘I am depressed’ because of the way society is set up,” Major Kariuki noted.“This is a problem that does not have boundaries whether you are rich, poor, old or young. It affects everyone.”Among plans that the foundation has include setting up a website and toll-free number where those suffering from mental health can voice their issues as well as seek professional help.The foundation will also seek to empower parents, teachers and the society at large especially in creating an environment where the young people will find comfort in voicing their issues.Major Michael Kariuki introduces his family during the launch of the Josiah Gathura Kariuki memorial Tournament. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“Parents need to be aware of the environment their kids live in. There’s a lot of pressure now because it’s different times. As parents, we need to be present for these kids and listen to them,” Ms Kariuki said, sentiments that were shared by her husband.“Parenting is complex nowadays and our young people are faced with a lot of challenges, more than they can handle. It is important for us as parents to create time with our kids not just a matter of chasing money everywhere and living the responsibility of raising the kids to house helps or drivers. We need to create an environment at home that is conducive for our children to express themselves,” he noted.Last September, when the world marked the World Suicide Prevention Day, it was disclosed by the World Health organization that up to 7,000 suicides are reported in Kenya annually with tens of thousands more attempting to kill themselves in what is often blamed on depression.According to a Ministry of Health research also conducted then, about 7mn Kenyans had attempted suicide which accounts to almost 16pc of the entire population.According to a research conducted in June this year, the number of suicides reported in Kenya rose by 58 per cent between 2008 and 2017 to reach 421.Also, the research conducted by The World Population Review ranks Kenya at position 114 among 175 countries with the highest suicide rate.0Shares0000(Visited 126 times, 1 visits today)

A father and son’s dream has taken flight after they BOTH refurbished vintage planes and took to the skies for the first time.James and Geoffrey Dolan have spent the number of months stripping down and renovating the two single propeller Piper planes.And this week James, 70, and Geoffrey, 38, took to the skies over Donegal for their maiden flights. The father and son from Lifford have spent a small fortune renovating the planes.Although they don’t know the exact figure, a set of two Tundra tyres for each plane shipped from Alaska, cost more than €6,500 each.Dad James, who owns the 1949 Piper Clipper PA16, says he is delighted how the way the planes have turned out.“I know most father and sons might build a train set or restore an old car but plane are our thing. “Geoffrey did most of the mechanical work but we had a great time doing up the planes and giving them a new lease of life.“I’m delighted with how they look and it was great working with Jeoffrey. I’m very proud of them,” he said.Geoffrey, who owns a scaffolding company, owns the 1959 Piper Pacer PA22 plane.“The planes are in perfect condition and they flew really well. They are back to the exact same condition in which they were built.“Almost all the parts have come from Ohio in America and they are all running really well,” he said. The four seater, tail-dragger planes have leather interiors and are named ‘Whipper Snapper’ and ‘Maggie Jane’ after James’ father and mother James and Maggie Jane.All the mechanical work was passed and tested by one of Ireland’s leading engineers, David Bruton of Midland Aviation in Athlone.Both planes will be operated out of Stevenson’s Airfield on the outskirts of Letterkenny.And James says he plans to take full advantage now that the planes have been brought back to life. “I have flown to London and to the Scottish Islands before and I plan to do the same again with these planes.“There is no greater feeling than being up in the air – especially knowing that it is your own work that has brought them back up there,” he said.FATHER AND SON TAKE TO THE SKIES AFTER REFURBISHING VINTAGE PLANES was last modified: January 11th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Geoffrey DolanJames DolanPiper planesStevenson’s Airfield
