I’m leery of calling people ‘racist.’ He says some things that can be construed as racist. Some things he says are very wrong and flagrant.”pic.twitter.com/njHfCg17HT— JM Rieger (@RiegerReport) July 30, 2019Barkley also said he is supporting Pete Buttigieg but has not picked a front-runner yet. Barkley has been outspoken about these issues before and took a lap through the debate’s spin room to talk to media ahead of the event.”I think all politicians take black votes for granted,” he said. “They talk to black folks every four years and that’s about it, how they’re going to make our lives better and they do nothing about it. Both parties suck in that aspect. It is not a Republican or Democrat thing. It’s not a liberal or conservative thing. It’s an economic thing, economic opportunity and that’s what both parties are neglecting.”He was then asked about his feelings on Trump. Charles Barkley was in attendance at the second Democratic Party presidential debate Tuesday.The former NBA player and current analyst weighed in on who he is supporting — a trio of candidates that includes San Antonio mayor Julián Castro — candidates on both sides taking black votes for granted and President Donald Trump.last_img read more

first_imgMinister of Health, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, says the Government is moving to widen dental care to rural areas and to the most vulnerable in the society, and is also ensuring that the sector receives significant upgrading, in order to protect the safety of the public. Delivering the opening address at the 49th Annual Convention of the Jamaica Dental Association (JDA), held on Thursday, May 2, at the Ritz Carlton Golf and Spa Resort, in Rose Hall, Montego Bay, the Minister said reform of the dental sector is on a priority list, and that the post of Director of Dental Services has been elevated to Chief Dental Officer. “Amendment of the Dental Act, and the Regulations (will be undertaken), as part of the modernization of dentistry in Jamaica, in order to protect the public’s safety, through the setting and enforcement of reliable and consistent standards. I will also ensure the establishment of a national dental examination Board, which will be responsible for ensuring high competent standards,” the Minister said. “The work is at an advanced stage; we have now received comments from the Attorney General’s Chambers, and we expect some early movement. I call on the leadership in the dental sector to make haste in doing the necessary submissions that should have come out of previous consultations,” Dr. Ferguson urged. The Minister explained that the reform process would achieve a relevant and modern framework to govern and regulate oral health service in Jamaica, and give it importance as other areas in the medical arena, while extending oral care to underserved sections of the island. “I am working to ensure that dental services will be a parallel system to that of medicine,” the Minister said. Dr. Ferguson noted that in line with the reform process, a new Dental Council, Dental Auxiliary Advisory Board and a Dental Appeals Tribunal were recently appointed.

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – In one of the biggest crackdowns on the corrupting role of money in college basketball, 10 men — including a top Adidas executive and four assistant coaches — were charged Tuesday with using hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes to influence star athletes’ choice of schools, shoe sponsors, agents, even tailors.Some of the most explosive allegations appeared to involve Louisville, one of college basketball’s biggest powerhouses, which is already on NCAA probation over a sex scandal.Federal prosecutors said at least three top high school recruits were promised payments of as much as $150,000, using money supplied by Adidas, to attend two universities sponsored by the athletic shoe company. Court papers didn’t name the schools but contained enough details to identify them as Louisville and Miami.“The picture of college basketball painted by the charges is not a pretty one,” said acting U.S. Attorney Joon H. Kim, adding that the defendants were “circling blue-chip prospects like coyotes” and exploited them to enrich themselves.Prosecutors said that while some of the bribe money went to athletes and their families, some went to coaches, to get them to use their influence over their potentially NBA-bound players.The coaches charged are Chuck Person of Auburn, Emanuel Richardson of Arizona, Tony Bland of Southern California and Lamont Evans of Oklahoma State. Person and Evans were suspended, and Bland was placed on administrative leave.Bland appeared in court in Tampa, Florida, wearing handcuffs and ankle chains. He said little during a brief hearing other than to answer the judge’s questions and did not enter a plea.Richardson appeared in court in Tucson, Arizona, where he was set for release on $50,000 bond. His lawyer declined to comment.Those charged also include James Gatto, director of global sports marketing for basketball at Adidas; Rashan Michel, a maker of custom suits for some of the NBA’s biggest stars; and various financial advisers and managers.NCAA President Mark Emmert condemned the alleged misconduct, saying, “Coaches hold a unique position of trust with student-athletes and their families, and these bribery allegations, if true, suggest an extraordinary and despicable breach of that trust.”Since 2015, the FBI has been investigating the influence of money on coaches and players in the NCAA. Kim noted a special FBI hotline was set up and asked anyone aware of additional corruption to come forward.Prosecutors said the coaches took bribes to use their “enormous influence” to steer players toward certain financial advisers and agents.Most if not all of the 10 defendants were under arrest. Lawyers for Gatto and two of the coaches did not immediately respond to requests for comment. It was unclear whether Evans had an attorney.Adidas said it was unaware of any misconduct by an employee and vowed to fully co-operate with authorities.Gatto and others are accused of funneling $100,000 to the family of a high school athlete to gain his commitment to play at Louisville and to sign with Adidas once he became a professional. Louisville and Adidas announced a 10-year, $160 million extension of their sponsorship deal over the summer.The player’s name was not released, but details in the criminal complaint make it clear investigators were referring to Brian Bowen, who did not return messages seeking comment.Louisville coach Rick Pitino said the allegations “come as a complete shock to me.”The development comes as Louisville is appealing a four-year NCAA probation over a scandal involving escorts hired for players and recruits. The scandal could cost the school its 2013 national championship.In court papers Tuesday, the FBI said it recorded a July meeting at which an assistant coach at Louisville was briefed on a plan to funnel thousands of dollars to a potential high school recruit. The participants in the meeting noted they had to be careful because Louisville was on probation.“We gotta be very low key,” said the coach, according to the FBI.Investigators said agents wiretapped a call in which Gatto and another defendant discussed an unidentified coach at Miami requesting that Adidas pay as much as $150,000 to another recruit, in part to prevent him from accepting a similar offer from a rival apparel company.Louisville interim President Gregory Postel confirmed the university has been informed it is part of the investigation and said, “Any violations will not be tolerated.”Miami said it will co-operate with authorities, while USC said it appointed former FBI Director Louis J. Freeh to conduct an internal investigation.The investigation began after Martin Blazer, a Pittsburgh-based financial adviser to pro athletes, began co-operating with authorities in 2014. Blazer, accused by the Securities and Exchange Commission of taking money from clients without permission, pleaded guilty this month to fraud and other crimes.He admitted making payments and loans to NCAA athletes as far back as 2000 to get them to hire him.Person, associate head coach at Auburn, was drafted by the Indiana Pacers in 1986 and played for five NBA teams over 13 seasons.Prosecutors said Person accepted about $91,500 in bribes from Blazer last year to steer clients to him when they reached the NBA. Some payments were alleged to have been arranged by Michel, a former NBA referee turned high-end clothier.Person was quoted by prosecutors as telling one player: “The most important part is that you … don’t say nothing to anybody … don’t share with your sisters, don’t share with any of the teammates, that’s very important ’cause this is a violation … of rules. But this is how the NBA players get it done.”Prosecutors said Evans solicited at least $22,000 over the past two years, while Richardson in February was paid $20,000 in bribes, some of which he kept for himself and some of which he gave to at least one high school athlete to get him to play for Arizona.___Associated Press writers Fred Goodall in Tampa, Florida, Gary Graves in Louisville, Kentucky, Larry Lage in Detroit and Fred Lief in New York contributed.last_img read more

first_imgAfter a remarkable performance in ‘Sacred Games’, Elnaaz Norouzi gears up for its second season. Read on to know what the actor has to say about her experience working with A-listers of Bollywood, and what all the audience can expect from the much-awaited second season. How did things change after the success of Sacred Games? I have never seen such craze for a series or film. So, after the show went viral on web, things changed entirely for the better. People have started recognising me because of ‘Sacred Games’, and addressing me as Zoya madam (my character’s name)… which is pretty cool. Also, the fact that audience applauds my performance and doesn’t remember me as ‘just a pretty face’ is a compliment in itself. This is what I always wanted. Also Read – An income drop can harm brain Was it intimidating to work alongside established actors like Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin and others. Is there too much pressure of proving your potential and grabbing the eyeballs for your performance while working with A-listers? Initially, when I went on the set and started working with Saif sir and Nawazuddin sir, I was very stressed. After all, it was my first project with mega stars. But luckily, not for a second I felt that I was shooting with such established actors. Both of them are amazing beings and never treated me like a newcomer. Obviously, there is a lot of pressure to deliver my best, however even when I forgot my lines, they were patient and considerate towards me. All I can say is we had a lot of fun on the set.

It is very difficult… I don’t think I can define it in words. It needs a lot of dedication, hard work and focus to survive in this industry. To overcome all the obstacles coming your way, and prove yourself amidst so many great talents and star kids, is a huge struggle. If you could play some other character from Sacred Games, which one would that be? I don’t think I would want to play any other character in ‘Sacred Games’ other than Zoya and Jameela. There are many layers to my character which will be unveiled in Season 2. So, yes I am happy with what I have got. What can one expect from the second season of Sacred Games? One can expect a lot of new characters in Season 2. How the story is going to unfold will be crazy and amazing at the same time and just on another level. There is going to be a lot of entertainment. I can assure you that Sacred Games season 2 will be very exciting. Tell us about your role in ‘Zee5’s web series? ‘Abhay’ is a new Zee5 original web series which is doing exceptionally well among the audience. We are coming out episode wise and will have eight episodes in total. I am playing the main lead opposite Kunal Khemmu. The name of my character is called Natasha, an ex-cop who has an interesting past with Abhay. Unfortunately, I can’t reveal much because we are still shooting for the same. You have to wait and watch. An ongoing web series you want to be a part of? Made in heaven. I really loved it. A project you regret turning down? Thank god there has never been a project that I turned down and regretted later. Whatever I have turned down has turned out to be the right decision. Web shows or movies, what’s your pick? I feel web is not just the future but also the present. It has a much higher reach. So if there is a web show where my character is amazing and the story is relevant, I would choose it over a movie.
