The Associated Press scored it 116-112 for Valdez, who rose to the challenges of the unusual conditions and an oversized opponent.The two-time Mexican Olympian got a punishing test from Quigg (34-2-2), who missed weight for the bout and appeared to benefit from that extra strength. Promoter Eddie Hearn revealed that Quigg had a right foot injury during his training camp, likely affecting his ability to make the 126-pound limit.“Both guys showed unbelievable heart,” Hearn said. “It was a brilliant fight. Both guys aren’t human.”Valdez landed 237 punches to Quigg’s 143. Valdez also led in power shots, 175-129.Valdez was taken to a hospital in nearby Torrance afterward. Quigg displayed heavy damage around his eyes in addition to his broken nose.ADVERTISEMENT GALLERY: Barangay Ginebra back as PBA Governors’ Cup kings Sea turtle trapped in net freed in Legazpi City Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano UK plans Brexit celebrations but warns businesses may suffer Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Villanova tops Providence for 2nd straight Big East title LATEST STORIES FILE – CARSON, CA – APRIL 22: Oscar Valdez of Mexico celebrates his unanimous 12 round decision over Miguel Marriaga of Colombia during the WBO Featherweight World Championship at StubHub Center on April 22, 2017 in Carson, California. Harry How/Getty Images/AFPCARSON, Calif. — Oscar Valdez’s broken jaw gradually left a pool of blood between rounds in his corner of the ring. Scott Quigg’s badly damaged nose wasn’t even the most grotesque feature of his battered face.By the time Valdez and Quigg embraced after the 12th-round bell, the poncho-clad fans at StubHub Center’s outdoor ring rose to cheer an exceptional display of boxing perseverance through both rain and pain.ADVERTISEMENT Nueva Ecija warehouse making fake cigarettes raided, 29 Chinese workers nabbedcenter_img And Valdez headed for the hospital with his championship belt still firmly in his possessionValdez persevered through a grueling challenge from England’s Quigg in a steady downpour to claim a unanimous decision victory Saturday night.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkValdez (24-0, 19 KOs) retained his WBO featherweight title while fighting under a canopy in this famed outdoor boxing venue south of downtown Los Angeles.

They were treated to another night of memorable fights at the outdoor ring that has hosted countless landmark bouts, albeit in California’s usually pleasant evening weather.Valdez had more pace than Quigg early, peppering him with shots in the first three rounds. Quigg found his stride and strength in the fourth round and again in the fifth, when he appeared to hurt Valdez seriously with a big right hook.Blood began to drip from Valdez’s mouth in the sixth round, likely related to the broken jaw. Robles didn’t take Valdez’s mouthpiece out of his mouth between rounds, trying to keep his jaw somewhat together.“I don’t know how to describe it, but his teeth are separated,” Robles said. “Part of his jaw is (caved) in.”Quigg hurt Valdez in the 10th, and the Englishman landed a low blow on Valdez in the 11th. After Valdez shook off the pain, he rushed back from the stoppage with a heavy flurry that nearly floored Quigg.Along with the miserable weather, the proceedings were dampened by Quigg’s inability to make weight. Quigg came in at 128.8 pounds on Friday, a hefty 2.8 pounds over the limit.Quigg was fined 20 percent of his $100,000 purse by the California commission, and he is likely to be required to make an additional payment to Valdez. Quigg had won three straight fights since his move to featherweight, but the Manchester-area native acknowledged he had badly botched his weight cut for his first fight in North America.The former WBA super bantamweight champion also lost his chance to fight for a major title in his second weight class. Hearn laughed at online theories suggesting Quigg had missed weight on purpose to have extra strength.“The only reason we took this fight was to try to win a world title,” Hearn said. “It was a disaster for him to be too heavy.” Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew View commentslast_img read more

Akon to launch #LightToLearn in Liberia

first_imgAkon Lighting Africa, To and Bridge Partnership Schools for Liberia are excited to announce a new partnership that will bring “Light To Learn” to the country’s various communities…On the Thursday, October 20, and Friday, 21st, international music icon and entrepreneur – Akon – will join forces with To: (Tikkun Olam) and Bridge Partnership Schools for Liberia for an event that will launch the Light To Learn initiative.Akon will personally light up the communities around two Bridge Partnership Schools including the ones at the J.W. Pearson Elementary School in Monrovia and Zuluyee Public School in the Ganta District in Nimba County using solar-generated lighting technology. “Light To Learn is an initiative that highlights the positive impacts of investment in Africa’s sustainable power and education, and the importance of developing both sectors as they propel Liberia and the continent towards a better and brighter future,” a Bridge statement has said. While 80 percent of the world’s population has access to electricity, only 30 percent of the African population enjoys this benefit. Today, almost 600 million inhabitants live without electricity, particularly in rural areas. In countries such as Liberia, there is virtually no access to electricity except by petrol generators. The Light to Learn initiative, the release said, aims to bring clean, affordable and endless energy that will in turn bring about beneficial changes such as empowering schools to use technology to support teachers in lesson preparation and classroom management; making use of digital libraries with access to hundreds of books at a child’s fingertips possible, even in remote communities. It also hopes to provide light to business owners such as shopkeepers, tradesmen and cooks to work and expand their activities and revenues; make roads safer and improve the structure of public places. Other benefits are helping to guarantee the continuity of healthcare services as doctors are able to examine patients at night or when it is dark; improving health within homes and communities, who will be saved from using pollutant, toxic and costly domestic fuels such as kerosene.“Before, our teachers didn’t feel confident teaching, because without electricity and few materials we were unable to prepare for lessons,” said Cathrine Jrikan, Vice Principal for Instruction at J. W. Pearson, one of Bridge’s Partnership Schools. “This initiative means that my school has the power it needs to enable the use of modern technology, has tablets for every teacher, with the materials needed for lessons and tools for managing class, and a digital library for the children. It has completely changed their education for the better.”“This year, we come to school and stay longer because the lessons are good,” said Patricia Davis, an 18 year old girl in the 6th grade at Bridge Partnership School Kpakolokoyata. “People in town encourage us to learn now.”“This is part of our plan for fostering harmony where we create lasting change on the ground,” added Nachson Mimran of To: “Studies show that the greatest developmental impact comes from investing in education and power. In this instance, we accomplish both.”Speaking ahead of the event, Akon commented “To be able to facilitate the needs of millions of people in Africa has always been a dream of mine. Our main goal is to bring light to Africa through public-private partnerships and the ripple effect of this is job creation, safety, commerce and supporting African children in furthering their education.”Light To Learn is building a brighter Liberia. Members of the press are invited to join the Light To Learn initiative at its launch and celebrate sustainable and innovative solutions that are contributing to solving the current energy and education crises. There are plans to bring theLight To Learn movement to other countries in Africa.Special invited guest, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, students of the Bridge Partnership Schools for Liberia, teaching staff, parents, government officials and VIPs are expected to be in attendance. A special Light To Learn Talent Show Competition featuring Bridge Partnership School students from all over the country has been organized showcasing an array of talent. The finalists will be judged by a panel featuring Akon and leading Liberian artists.

Scans at Dawson Creek Hospital called into question

first_imgOne of the main recommendations that came out of Dr. Cochrane’s report states that the Province’s Ministry of Health should implement a peer-review system.The report did find that the 287 physicians currently providing diagnostic imaging services across the province are properly licensed. Since the initial readings by the radiologist, five patients have died, however Butcher says Northern Health does not believe their treatment would have changed based on the review of their scans.The Investigation into Medical Imaging Credentialing and Quality Assurance conducted by Dr. Doug Cochrane, chair of the B.C. Patient Safety and Quality Council, specifically looked at four radiologists across the province.Those four radiologists had their review of CT scans and obstetrical ultrasound readings called into question.None of the four radiologists’ whose work was called into question is currently working in B.C.Advertisement A radiologist who worked in Dawson Creek over a two-month period last year has had his work reviewed by Northern Health.The specific radiologist had been working at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Comox and was in Dawson Creek area only for a short period of time.- Advertisement -According to Northern Health, the radiologist provided services to the Dawson Creek Hospital during June and July of 2010.The Health Authority reviewed 100 CT scans done on 94 patients and which were read by the radiologist, says Northern Health Vice President of Medicine Dr. David Butcher.Butcher says the review found 16 scans had discrepancies in their interpretation, but nothing that would have changed the attending physician’s method of treatment. However, he also says there were six patients whose CT scans were reviewed which showed “significant discrepancies”.Butcher says Northern Health has asked the patient’s doctors to report if they would have recommended different treatment based on the new information from the review. At this time, he says it does not appear that six patients’ treatment would have changed.Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgA newly restructured daily transport service connecting West Donegal to Letterkenny via Churchill has been launched by Minister of State at the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport, Alan Kelly TD.This launch took place at Failte Ireland Tourist Centre, Letterkenny this morning. Working closely with local communities and business, SITT have restructured an existing service that operates from Dungloe to Letterkenny daily. This new service is to commence on Monday 2nd July 2012.SITT, set up in 2002 by South West Donegal Communities Partnership Ltd. is managed by a Board of Management from the voluntary and community sector, funded by the Dept. of Transport, Tourism and Sport, managed by the National Transport Authority (NTA) and is based in Killybegs.The focus of rural transport is to address unmet transport needs of rural dwellers and provide an accessible affordable service based on that need.SITT as part of its ongoing monitoring and reviewing of services, have restructured a daily service that runs from Dungloe to Letterkenny. This service is now commencing at the Pier in Burtonport every morning to meet the ferries from Arranmor, stopping in Dungloe, Loughanure, Crolly, Dunlewy, Glenveagh, redirecting into Churchill, Sockar Road and on into Letterkenny.This is an open transport service where passengers who own a Free Travel Pass may use it and for all other passengers there is a promotional fare of only €3 return for the summer months!Careful thought and consultation has gone into the timetable so that third level students, trainees attending the various training centres and daily commuters arrive into Letterkenny before 9.00am and have a return service again in the evening.This service is also ideal for people who have to attend hospital appointments or clinics in Letterkenny or Dungloe hospitals.The bus will deliver you right to the hospital door.

first_imgCiaran Bonner was in sensational form for Glenswilly in their Donegal SFC win over Bundoran.Glenswilly 6-16 Bundoran 0-09 Glenswilly bounced back from the disappointment of last weekend’s defeat to Kilcar, by hammering a lacklustre Bundoran side.Bundoran suffered a heavy away defeat to St Michaels last weekend and it was hoped they’d be a tougher proposition at home. Managed by Donegal GAA legend Brian McEniff, Bundoran had no answer to a rampant Glenswilly who were hungry, ruthless and clinical throughout the entire match.Goals from Neil Gallagher and Michael Murphy in the opening period ensured a comfortable win for Glenswilly.They added four more goals in the second-half which may prove crucial, as it could come down to the scoring difference to see who advances to the last eight.Kilcar and Glenswilly are both on two points each, while St Michaels have four. Kilcar will be expected to defeat Bundoran which would them on four, while if Glenswilly defeat St Michaels next week that would leave all three teams on four points apiece.It’s going to be interesting next week in the so-called Group of Death.Mac Cumhaills 0-09 Four Masters 2-14Four Masters delivered an excellent and assured performance yesterday evening to defeat Mac Cumhaills.Four Masters were dominant throughout and goals from Peadar Espie and Kevin McBrearty ensured they would leave Mac Cumhaill Park with the crucial victory they desperately needed. Mac Cumhaills lost Rory Dunleavy brother of Cork City captain Johnny Dunleavy to a black card in first-half injury time.In truth Mac Cumhaills battled gamely but were outclassed by a Four Masters team that were well organised, determined and clinical.Four Masters now play Glenfin who exited the competition following their defeat to Ardara.A win for Four Masters next week would see them advance to the last eight of the Donegal SFC.
