Conor McGregor seeks to emerge from controversy in UFC comeback LATEST STORIES He is one of several key sidelined players for Boston, which is at Portland on Friday. He joins Jaylen Brown (concussion protocol), Marcus Smart (thumb surgery), Daniel Theis (knee surgery, out for season) and Gordon Hayward (ankle surgery rehab).Stevens said the team will focus on its strengths in light on the injuries.“Do what you do best. That’s it,” he said. “Everybody’s got something they do well otherwise they wouldn’t be in the NBA. Don’t try to be something you’re not, don’t try to make up for Kyrie’s absence, or Smart’s absence, or Tyson’s absence by trying to do what they do. Just do you and just be good at it, be reliable at it. That’s all we’re going to ask.”Stevens said he had not had a lot of discussion with the front office about adding another player.“I think that there is the possibility of applying for an exception again because of all the knee injuries and the length of injuries. I don’t know where we are with that, and I haven’t talked to them about any particulars.ADVERTISEMENT Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving, left, sit with teammates Jaylen Brown, center, and Marcus Smart during the first quarter of the team’s NBA basketball game against the Oklahoma City Thunder in Boston, Tuesday, March 20, 2018.

In the extra period, he hit the go-ahead basket with 28 seconds left.“Just fantastic, he was unbelievable,” Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. “The 3s were great, but I also love how he was driving the ball to the rim, too.”Dinwiddie said he didn’t really have time to celebrate his hot shooting as the shots were falling and kept a very businesslike mindset.“It was like: ‘Down nine. Down six. Down three. Oh, tied? Let’s get a stop,’” he said about his 3-point spree. “That’s really all it was.”ADVERTISEMENT After Harden made three free throws to give the Rockets a one-point lead, James Nunnally — who signed a 10-day contract Wednesday — hit a 3-pointer to make it 142-135 with 1:28 left.Treveon Graham made a 3 for Brooklyn and Jarrett Allen made a basket but missed a free throw to cut the lead to 142-140.

You’ve got James (Nunnally) out there his first game and we had a couple of mistakes out there near the end.

…to boost crime-fighting capacityWith the high influx of foreign nationals in Guyana, especially those from Spanish speaking nations, acting Police Commissioner Paul Williams has called on the ranks of the Guyana Police Force (GPF) to develop their skills in the area of foreign languages, to be better able to fight crime.Crime Chief Paul WilliamsWilliams pointed out that it would be very sad to know that, for example, a Chinese national was complaining to an officer that the person, who robbed him or her, was standing right there, and just because of the language barrier, the service it offers is less effective.He said there is a high influx of Chinese, Cubans and Venezuelans into Guyana and pointed out that it is important for Police Officers be able to understand basic words in the certain foreign language.Williams added that training does not have to be facilitated by the GPF, owing to the fact that “we are now living in a technological age. The ranks or the recruits, they are pretty young and they can even help to develop their capacity through social media and all these things because all these things are very accessible now via the use of phone, Internet and so on,” he posited.It is because of this, he said, that in the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Induction courses that Spanish is now being taught.In addition to this, the crime fighter seized the opportunity to renew his call for officers to treat all persons – irrespective of their race, sex or religion – with respect.“There should be no discrimination as to sex, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual preferences and relationships. Show respect for all human rights and constitutional rights,” Williams urged.

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku 1 Everton had Romelu Lukaku to thank as his late diving header denied Premier League basement side Leicester City in a 2-2 draw at Goodison Park.The Foxes were minutes away from claiming a vital win for their survival hopes, with goals from substitute David Nugent and Esteban Cambiasso putting them in front.Steven Naismith had earlier opened the scoring but Everton had failed to delight their home fans with another lacklustre display.But the Merseysiders managed to break down the visitors’ stubborn defences late on, with Lukaku seeing his headed effort deflected in off Matthew Upson to thwart the Foxes and claim a fortunate point.After a dreadfully dull opening-half, where a lack of poise in front of goal saw the teams register just one shot on target apiece, the deadlock was finally broken just before the hour-mark when Naismith fired the hosts in front.Receiving the ball from Lukaku from the left, the Scot controlled but made a mess of his shot, though he got just enough on his scuffed effort to sneak the ball under Wes Morgan’s attempted block and into the net.Their lead didn’t last long, however, as the game burst to life following a inspired double substitution from Foxes boss Nigel Pearson, with David Nugent pulling his side level seconds after coming off the bench.Toffees goalkeeper Tim Howard failed to hold on to Jamie Vardy’s stinging effort and former England striker Nugent was there to tuck in the rebound.It was chances galore then, as Lukaku wasted a great opportunity by firing into the stands after racing through one-on-one, and Leicester looked to have completed a shock turnaround when Esteban Cambiasso had the Foxes in front moments later.Howard was again at fault, the American flapping at a cross to allow the Argentine legend to tap in to stick the Foxes in front.Lukaku was guilty of another shocking miss before the big Belgian made up for his errors with a big hand in the late equaliser, which was eventually awarded as a Upson own-goal with the striker’s diving header deflecting in off the centre-back.Boos rang out at the final whistle from the Goodison Park faithful, who have seen their side claim just one win in ten, while a point leaves Leicester still rock-bottom of the top flight.

The male grooming experts at Mavericks Traditional Barbershop Letterkenny present a tried and tested guide to finding the best deodorant for your lifestyle. When the Mavericks were cleaning their workstations after some long slogs over Christmas, a few of the nights the slagging and craic got up about the sweat patches that some of the boys were sporting!At one point I even thought is this a good barometer for how hard the guys are working, but then I realised I had no sweat patches at all! So I quickly disposed of that theory… But as one of the Mavericks said, “it’s so bloody hard to know which one to pick”. So we went to work and done a bit of research on the popular brands!Which sweat-buster is right for you?Choosing a deodorant that works for youThe first thing we realised is you need to consider your lifestyle, are you regularly at the gym, football training, cross fit or some other highly active pastime? If so, you’ll need a deodorant that reacts to intensive movement and combats odour.Or if you do a lot of travelling you will not what something the size of a breakfast roll to lug about with you. For me, I picked a deodorant that you can easily pick up the travel size as well. I don’t travel much but the OCD in me likes to have that kind of uniformity in my toilet bag regime.Spray-On vs. Roll-onThe main differences between the two are size, and roll-ons deliver more active ingredients directly into the armpit area. This is why deodorants to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) often come in this form. Other than that it is just personal preference. Anti-perspirant sprays are great for broader all-around protection ideal if your personal odour isn’t confined to one place.If you don’t sweat , your not “home and dry” just yet… If your wardrobe comprises mainly white T-shirts, deodorants containing aluminium have largely been identified as the culprit behind those yellow stains. So be conscious of this the next time you’re buying and when your wondering where the hell are them stains coming outta.Some of the best deodorants…Best for the officeYou’ll want this one to simply do the job no need for a strong smell (you don’t need to be walking around like Brian Fantana from Anchorman), just stay clean and stay fresh.Our top choice is Dove Men+Care Invisible Dry, it does exactly what it says on the tin, no white marks and keeps you pretty fresh all day.For Sensitive SkinA lot of guys can get irritated by “heavy duty” deodorants, your skin can feel dry or feel irritated. For this we recommend L’Oreal Men Expert Sensitive Control, It is made to cater for even the driest and most irritable of skin. It also offers up to 48 hours of protection, but we don’t think you should depend on a spray for that long.For the Sports StarThere probably is not a more demanding time for a deodorant than after a session.We found Nivea Men Sport antiperspirant is specifically formulated for lads with active lifestyles. If you’re looking for something to keep your underarms under control, no matter how intense your session is, this will keep you on track.When excessive sweating is the issueExcessive sweating (also known as hyperhidrosis) affects a vast percentage of men, but there are solutions out there. Mitchum, is the first pit stop that most men will make for this and most will not have to go any further great for strong odour-fighting qualities, it promises to keep even the clammiest of oxters under control.For more info on male grooming call into us at Mavericks Traditional Barbershop, Lower Main Street, Letterkenny, we guarantee great haircuts in a classic barbershop environment.You can also check us out on Facebook for some giveaways this week (www.facebook.com/Maverickstraditionalbarbershop) and follow us on Instagram (maverickstraditionalbarbershop) or Twitter www.twitter.com/mavericksbaber Mavericks Traditional BarbershopMavericks Barbers: Sniffing out the best men’s deodorants was last modified: January 18th, 2018 by Mavericks BarbersShare 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:deodorantmale groomingmavericks barbershop
