O’Neale added 17 points while Rudy Gobert had 15 points and 12 rebounds.The Jazz held an opponent under 100 points for the 19th time this season, but could never get on track offensively.“We really worked our tails off defensively, particularly in the half-court,” Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. “When we’re not able to convert, it puts a lot of pressure on our defense. There are a number of things we can try and improve on, but I like how we competed on the defensive end. The offense will come.”Starting with second-chance baskets from Adams and Grant, the Thunder scored field goals on five straight possessions to take a 22-14 lead late in the first quarter. O’Neale and Crowder finally stemmed the run with back-to-back 3-pointers.Oklahoma City ran off 10 unanswered points and took its first double-digit lead at 40-29 on a pair of free throws from Westbrook with 3:42 remaining in the half. Adams also made a pair of hook shots to help fuel the spurt.Utah trimmed the Thunder lead to 60-55 late in the third quarter when Mitchell scored a finger roll layup. Oklahoma City pulled away a second time and took its largest lead at 80-63 on a 3-pointer from Abdel Nader early in the fourth quarter.“We self-induced some of their runs,” Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. “We had some opportunities in transition that we turned the ball over. We got lost a couple of times in transition defense and gave some open 3s. We had some breakdowns, and some of our offense led to them getting back.”THREE TROUBLEThe Jazz shot just 30 percent from the perimeter. As a team, Utah shot 43 3-pointers, which composed nearly 50 percent of its total field goal attempts. Even with such a high volume, the Jazz believed they were the right shots to take.“I’ll take it. Every night,” Mitchell said. “Because when they fall, they fall, you know they’re open looks. It’s not like we’re taking step-back 3s … we’re taking good shots and they’re going to fall.” “Players and fans have a shared responsibility to create a safe and respectful environment,” the Jazz statement said. “If it is determined that any fans violated the NBA Code of Conduct, appropriate action will be taken.”The fan said in a TV interview that neither he nor his wife cursed at Westbrook.Paul George chipped in 14 points and 11 rebounds for Oklahoma City. Steven Adams and Jerami Grant added 12 points apiece.Westbrook took over after the Jazz rallied in the fourth quarter. Royce O’Neale cut the deficit to 89-83 on a pair of 3-pointers. Utah didn’t get any closer. Westbrook scored back-to-back baskets as part of a 9-1 run that put the Thunder up 98-84 with 1:32 remaining.“We did a great job of just competing,” Schroder said. “Defensively and offensively. Just having fun, going back to our identity.”ADVERTISEMENT Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

MCA-L, LWSC Sign US$18M Grant

first_imgDuannah A. Kamara (left), managing director of the LWSC, signed on behalf of the Government of Liberia, while Monie R. Captan, chief executive officer of MCA-L, signed on behalf of his entity.The Millennium Challenge Account-Liberia (MCA-Liberia) has entered an US$18 million grant of Implementing Entity Agreement (IEA) with the Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC).The grant is intended to rehabilitate the Raw Water Pipeline project and to replace the damaged 36-inch diameter pipeline from the dam at the Mt. Coffee Hydro Power Plant to White Plains Water Treatment Plant in Louisiana, lower Montserrado County.Mr. Monie R. Captan, chief executive officer of MCA-L, signed on behalf of his entity, while Duannah A. Kamara, managing director of the LWSC, also signed on behalf of the Government.Prior to the signing ceremony, Mr. Captan said since the pipeline was destroyed during the civil war in the 1990s the LWSC has been pumping water from the St. Paul River by means of a river intake and pump station at the water treatment plant (WTP).He said the US$18 million proposed pipeline is approximately 3.1 miles long and generally follows the original alignment of the pipeline with small deviations.Kamara stated that the construction of the new pipeline will result in the consistent and quality water supply to the nearly one million residents of Monrovia.The MCA-L chief executive officer noted that as the reliability and quality of water delivered by the system improves, it is to be expected that a greater percentage of the city and county’s population will obtain their water from the public water system.He said the Raw Water Pipeline is a subproject under the Energy project of the US$257 million grant to Liberia from the American Government through the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC).He explained further that the objective will address several problems facing the energy in the country through four compact activities, including the Mt. Coffee rehabilitation activity, Mt. Coffee support activity, the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC) training center activity, and the energy sector reform.These four activities, he said, are complementary and aim to connect more homes and businesses to reliable and affordable electricity to drive sustainable economic growth.LWSC Managing Director Kamara expressed gratitude to the United States Government through the MCA-L for such an initiative which is intended to provide safe drinking water for Liberians.He said the signing of the grant agreement will provide abundant water into the water treatment plant, which will help them serve the people in central Monrovia and its environs.He believes that a 48-inch diameter pipeline will be constructed for water to reach the WTP via gravity flow, which will replace the need for river intake, reduce the cost for electricity associated with the use of a pump station, and eliminate salt-water intrusion at the WTP caused by river intake during the dry season that results in poor water quality.Meanwhile, the ceremony was attended by Mr. Archibald Bernard, legal advisor to President George M. Weah, LWSC Board members and other dignitaries.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Jazz Day is chaired by Hancock and the UNESCO Director-General, Audrey Azoulay. The celebration is recognized on the calendars of both UNESCO and the United Nations.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀The Liberia edition of International Jazz Day 2019, which takes place Tuesday, April 30 at the Living Room, Royal Grand Hotel, in Sinkor, Monrovia, will be a special unique evening full of jazz, accompanied by the beautiful stylings of Liberia’s own The Afrik Collective. The event will also feature a special appearance from the Liberia Poet Society.According to UNESCO, the 2019 edition of International Jazz Day will be officially launched in Australia and celebrated in more than 190 countries around the world, including Liberia.Thousands of other programmes all over the world will celebrate jazz as a universal language of peace, among them jazz-themed films, lectures, book readings, theatre performances and panel discussions, as well as jam sessions, master classes, and radio and television broadcasts. As in previous years, a majority of International Jazz Day partner activities will focus on education and community impact, benefitting millions of students, academics, professional musicians and music lovers everywhere.Established by the General Conference of UNESCO in 2011 at the initiative of UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador Herbie Hancock, and recognized by the United Nations General Assembly, International Jazz Day brings together countries and communities worldwide every 30 April to celebrate the art of jazz, highlighting its important role in encouraging dialogue, combating discrimination and promoting human dignity. The Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz is UNESCO’s official partner in the organization and promotion of International Jazz Day.On 29 and 30 April, a wide range of jazz performances, education programs and community service initiatives will be presented in partnership with the Melbourne Conservatorium, University of Melbourne, featuring more than a dozen celebrated jazz masters. The events on International Jazz Day itself (30 April) will culminate in an All-Star Global Concert at the Melbourne Arts Centre’s renowned Hamer Hall. Iconic jazz pianist Herbie Hancock (USA) and acclaimed trumpeter James Morrison (Australia) will serve as artistic co-directors of the All-Star Global Concert, and John Beasley (USA) will serve as the evening’s musical director, accompanied by over a dozen other headline jazz musicians. That event will be webcast via YouTube, Facebook, the United Nations and UNESCO to millions of viewers worldwide. A series of jazz performances and outreach programs will also take place throughout Australia and in over 190 other countries around the world.One of the last notable celebrations of International Jazz day in Liberia was in 2014 at the American Embassy in Monrovia, where, “the reputable International Music House Sound crew of venerable or ‘Old-hand’ in the business of music, Amb. David Daniels, a man who has received many accolades for promoting music in the country, performed to the admiration of the audience,” according to veteran journalist Philip N. Wesseh, who wrote about the event.“In dedicating a special music to President Sirleaf, Amb Daniels spoke of how the ‘High Life’ music started from Liberia and was later carried to Ghana and Nigeria,” Wesseh wrote. “Although the occasion was all about playing jazz music, I was touched and took note of the brief remarks of Amb Daniels on the issue that ‘High Life’ music became popular in Ghana many years ago, to an extent that some people believed that it was from Ghana that High Life music originated from.”Elsewhere on the African continent, Dandora HIP HOP City, Kenya held a Jazz Street Festival on Monday, April 29, showcasing an infusion of hip hop, old school and new, to the harmonies of jazz instrumentals. This fun-filled day provided a perfect platform for local artists, family and friends to mingle and sample some of the products, including artworks, music, fashion, food stuffs among others on display.UNESCO has already announced that the City of Cape Town, South Africa, has been named host of the 2020 International Jazz Day.Tickets for the Liberia edition for International Jazz Day 2019 go for US$20 (regular) and US$50 (VIP).

Retired UCT academic unravels mystery of Wilde’s wife

first_img11 February 2015For over a century the sudden death of Constance Wilde, wife of the famous author and playwright, Oscar Wilde, has remained a mystery. Now, thanks to medical sleuthing by retired UCT academic and psychiatrist, Dr Ashley Robins, and the Wilde’s grandson, Merlin Holland, the cause of Constance’s death may finally have been discovered.Constance Wilde died suddenly in Genoa, Italy on 7 April 1898, from complications following surgery for the removal of a uterine fibroid. She was 40 years old. These facts, however, describe only a small part of the circumstances that surrounded her death.Constance had fled to Genoa to escape the scandal and spectacular fall from grace of her husband, who had been found guilty in 1895 of the crime of being homosexual. She found herself in a foreign city, with two young sons, having abandoned her career as a children’s author and her role as a women’s rights advocate.Pelvic madnessIn addition, she was plagued by mysterious physical symptoms such as an inability to walk, exhaustion, pain and facial paralysis: symptoms that many doctors had tried – unsuccessfully – to treat.Enter the urbane and seemingly knowledgeable Italian gynaecologist, Luigi Maria Bossi, who claimed that he might provide a cure.Reviewing old documentation, Dr Ashley Robins, a retired UCT academic and psychiatrist, posits that Constance gave her consent to undergo surgery, believing a cure was possible.“Bossi believed that some patients with neurological illness stemmed from women’s reproductive organs (pelvic madness), even though at the time such ideas were already discredited. It is likely that Constance died of paralytic ileus (bowel paralysis) brought about by the operation.”Although at the time Bossi did not suffer any consequences over the botched surgery, he was suspended many years later from his professorship at Genoa University due to professional misconduct, before being fatally shot by the jealous husband of one of his patients.Nine-year illnessAccording to Robins and Holland’s re-examination of the correspondence between Constance and her brother, she first started displaying symptoms almost a decade before her death. Their recently published Lancet study states: “Her nine-year illness was characterised by widespread pains, right leg weakness, tremor of the right arm, profound fatigue, and a left facial paralysis.“For the first seven years the clinical picture was dominated by intermittent acute episodes followed by extended periods of recovery; in the last two years her disability became permanent with gradual deterioration. A likely diagnosis is multiple sclerosis of the relapsing-remitting type that subsequently developed into secondary progressive multiple sclerosis.”This debilitating neurological disorder is thought to be an auto-immune condition leading to a degeneration of myelin, the substance that protects nerve fibers from damage. Although the illness was first described by Jean-Martin Charcot in 1868, physicians of those times may not have associated Constance’s symptoms with this fairly recently discovered disease.What prompted Robins and Holland to re-examine these century-old letters? In Robins’ case this latest discovery has been preceded by a lifelong fascination with Oscar Wilde. “My mother would read me Wilde’s fairytales as a child, but she would never explain the circumstances of his downfall. I became fascinated by him, his wit and larger-than-life personality.”In 2000, the centenary of Wilde’s death, Robins played a part in the discovery that he died from meningitis brought on by chronic middle ear disease, rather than syphilis as had been speculated previously. In 2011 Robins also published a book analysing Wilde’s personality and retrospectively diagnosing him with hysterical personality disorder.Premature deathsMerlin Holland, Oscar and Constance’s grandson, has mentioned in a previous interview that while his mother was alive she had worried that revealing the contents of the letters would encourage people to sensationalise Constance’s life and death. With this new discovery, however, previous ideas that her death had been caused by a fall or syphilis (contracted from Oscar) have all been proven untrue. In Holland’s words: “I rather feel this will put Constance to rest, poor thing.”Almost 120 years after they died, it has now been shown that Oscar and Constance died from completely unrelated medical conditions. Nonetheless their deaths share common, and tragic, elements. Not only did they both die young, and from medical conditions that today might be successfully treated, but in both cases the more indirect causes of their premature demise can be related to the prevailing social attitudes of the day.Prejudice against homosexuality led to Oscar’s incarceration and subsequent physical decline. Constance suffered the consequences of being a woman at a time when the medical fraternity tended to blame neurological conditions on female physiology.“Tragically, if Constance had been alive today, there would be every chance that her condition, while not curable, could have been diagnosed and appropriately managed,” says Robins. “I would like to believe that medicine, the very discipline which failed her then, has also played a part in uncovering the truth behind both their deaths.”This story first appeared in the January 2015 edition of the Research at UCT newsletter.
