“It always takes cash to care, but what I have learnt is that you work with what you have and then you await the perfect situation because you can’t just sit and wait on sponsors, we have to run the league,” Broomfield said. “Sometimes, you have to start and then others will jump on board. “Our executives have met and they have all agreed that we must run the league this year with or without a sponsor, but it doesn’t mean that we are not looking for sponsors,” he said. Broomfield said the SDC League would help to generate a lot of buzz and excitement among the basketball fans, which he expects will spill over into the NBL. “We have a number of basketball leagues that are going to propel into the NBL, but the fact that there is a long lay-off, of course, is going to affect the players. But we are committed to starting the league and bringing vibes back into basketball.” President of the Jamaica Basketball Association (JaBA), Dr Mark Broomfield, is reassuring basketball fans that the National Basketball League (NBL) competition will take place this year. The NBL, which is the island’s premier basketball tournament, was last held in 2012 under former president Ajani Williams. However, since then, JaBA has struggled to secure a sponsor for the competition. However, Broomfield, who took over as president from Williams in 2015, said the NBL would go ahead this year, regardless of sponsorship. The JaBA boss added that his association is hoping to the start the league in October. “With or without a sponsor, we are going to have the National Basketball League this year,” Broomfield said. “We might not be able to run it the way we want to, but we are going to run it,” he said. “We have the SDC (Social Development Commission) League, which is going to run, so we want that at the end of the SDC league, we will move into the NBL,” Broomfield said.

AFP/GETTY IMAGES FILE PHOTOLOS ANGELES—Floyd Mayweather has accused Conor McGregor of “fighting dirty” in training but is confident of a clean battle when the two men meet in their August 26 superfight.Mayweather told reporters on a conference call on Thursday he believed mixed martial arts star McGregor had used illegal tactics in sparring sessions.ADVERTISEMENT “A lot of rabbit punching, a lot of illegal shots, behind the head,” he added.READ: McGregor vows fast finish against MayweatherMcGregor has hired veteran referee Joe Cortez during his training camp to help advise on boxing rules and ensure he fights clean.“He’s had Joe Cortez in his training camp and I’ve still seen him being extremely dirty,” Mayweather said.Veteran referee Robert Byrd will be responsible for managing the fight and Mayweather is confident he will maintain control of the contest. Byrd officiated in Mayweather’s 2013 win over Robert Guerrero in Las Vegas.ADVERTISEMENT “I truly believe the referee is going to do a great job,” Mayweather said.“The referee’s job is to keep the fight clean. He don’t have anything to worry about. I’m looking forward to following the Queensberry rules of boxing,” he added.Mayweather retired from boxing in 2015 with a perfect 49-0 record to emulate former heavyweight legend Rocky Marciano. A win against McGregor would see the welterweight become the only man to ever hold a perfect 50-0 record.Mayweather insisted however that moving clear of Marciano’s historic benchmark was not on his mind.“Even though this is my 50th fight, this is not my focus,” Mayweather said. “Rocky Marciano is a legend, he did it his way. I just like to do it the Mayweather way.”Win or lose, Mayweather is adamant that nothing will be able to tempt him back into the ring following his return against McGregor. He reiterated an earlier statement that this month’s fight will be his last.BACKSTORY: Mayweather ‘out of retirement for McGregor’“This is my last one.

The first day of practice for the 90th running of the Indianapolis 500 didn’t meet the expectations of Valencia’s Bryan Herta, driver for Andretti Green Racing. Herta, a Hart High of Newhall graduate, will be attempting to make his fifth career start in the Indy 500 and his third for Andretti Green Racing. He has yet to finish outside the top five in his previous Indy 500s for Andretti Green Racing. He was 11th fastest on the first day of practice, Tuesday, at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Herta completed 32 laps with his best at 222.414 mph. “We expected to be higher on the chart,” Herta said. “We realize we have time to do the work we need because the worst thing you can do at this place is to be in a hurry to do anything.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsAndretti Green Racing is expected to have five cars in the race.

LETTERKENNY General Hospital appears to have lost another valuable healthcare discipline as pacemaker patients are now being forced to travel to Dublin or Galway.Fianna Fáil TD for Donegal North East Charlie McConalogue today called on the HSE to reinstate pacemaker and internal defibrillator procedures in Letterkenny General Hospital as a matter of priority.These procedures were temporarily suspended on 1st September 2011 as a ‘cost containment measure’ and the HSE gave a commitment to review the restoration of this service in 2012. But six months on there is no sign of the procedures returning.Deputy McConalogue told donegaldaily.com: “Having raised this issue at the Oireachtas Health Committee towards the end of last year, I am now calling on the HSE to honour its commitment to consider reinstating pacemaker and internal defibrillator procedures in Letterkenny General.“I have spoken to the hospital’s General Manager Sean Murphy about this and I have been assured that discussions are ongoing. However, I want to see a full resumption of services and I believe the sooner the HSE review current practices the better.“The hospital previously would have carried out approximately 10-15 of these procedures per month. But now, Donegal patients have to be transferred to Galway University Hospital or St James Hospital in Dublin for the treatment they need.” The TD added: “Progress must be made on establishing a permanent facility for installing pacemakers at the hospital. Thanks to the great efforts of the Friends of Letterkenny General Hospital, substantial funds have already been raised for this facility.“The HSE must work with the hospital to provide the additional funding needed for a permanent unit. This would be of enormous benefits to patients in Donegal and the North West, and would prove very cost efficient in the long run.”No-one from the HSE was available for comment.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.

Mixon, M.S., LMFT[Flickr, 111229-F-AY498-199, by North Carolina National Guard, CC BY-ND 2.0] Retrieved on September 23, 2015This week’s RESOURCE DISCOVERY features a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website housing a fact sheet about how children typically respond to parents struggling with PTSD. The fact sheet outlines the relevance of looking at how PTSD in parents affects military children and also provides insight into how children respond. The social and behavioral problems that these children may show are addressed, along with potential risks children may experience related to emotional problems and secondary traumatization. The fact sheet also offers steps that parents can take to prevent and alleviate the effects of PTSD on children. Professionals working with military families can utilize this resource to not only become more aware of how parental PTSD impacts children but also to better inform military parents struggling with this issue.Sherman, M. & Sherman, D. (2005). Finding my way: A teen’s guide to living with a parent who has experienced trauma. Seeds of Hope, Waco, TX.Also featured is a book called Finding My Way: A Teen’s Guide to Living with a Parent who has Experienced Trauma. Authors Michelle D. Sherman, PhD and DeAnne M. Sherman offer a three-part book that can help adolescents address issues related to having a parent struggling with PTSD.“This honest and respectfully written manual serves as a road map for teens who are trying to find their way.”This is an interactive book that not only explains PTSD but also co-occurring problems (such as substance abuse) commonly associated with PTSD. In addition, this resource for teens encourages readers to address the uncomfortable emotions and provides opportunities to learn about and develop healthy coping strategies including finding expressive outlets.
