An interior ministry source told Petrushova her that it was a political matter and that the Russian police would not get involved. When they released her however police said there was a risk of the same thing happening again.Petrushova told Reporters Without Borders that she had not received any summons from Kazakh courts and did not know what it could be about. Since she has Russian nationality she cannot be deported, but she is convinced that the Kazakh authorities are trying to keep her under surveillance.The weekly, then called Respublika, was banned for three months on 6 August 2003 on the basis of a complaint from the information ministry that it was not legally registered.Petrushova was sentenced to 18 months in prison on 4 July 2002 and then immediately amnestied, for not having declared her Russian nationality. On 22 May the same year, the weekly’s offices were destroyed after a Molotov cocktail attack. Three days earlier the decapitated body of a dog was found hanging in front of the entrance to the newspaper. On 8 March the journalist was sent a funeral wreath.

Kiwis battle to stumps after Proteas bowled out for 314

first_img(REUTERS)-Tom Latham and Jeet Raval weathered an intense examination for over 25 overs to guide New Zealand to 67 without loss at the close of the rain-affected second day of the third Test against South Africa at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Sunday.Latham was 42 not out, while Raval was on 25 when bad light forced the players off with 3.3 overs of play remaining.South Africa had been dismissed for 314 about 30 minutes after tea following an almost two-hour rain delay that washed out virtually all of the middle session.Quinton de Kock had again proved his value to South Africa’s lineup with his ability to score quickly and marshall the lower order as they scored 124 runs for the final four wickets.The wicketkeeper top-scored with 90, falling short of a century for his second successive innings after he made 91 in the second test in Wellington.He had hit 11 fours and two sixes in his 118-ball stay before left-armer Neil Wagner got a ball to swing in and then straighten off the pitch and trap him in front. De Kock failed to overturn the leg before decision on review.Kagiso Rabada was the last man out as he scored a career-best 34 with six boundaries a six.Prior to the rearguard action, New Zealand had been well-placed to dismiss the visitors for not much more than 200 when they managed to remove the overnight pair of Temba Bavuma for 29 and Faf du Plessis for 53 that left South Africa at 190 for six.Bavuma had attempted to hook a slow, short Matt Henry delivery and only succeeded in getting a nick to first slip Raval, while Du Plessis fell to a brilliant catch by Latham just after reaching his 12th Test half century.The skipper set himself for a lap sweep against left arm-spinner Mitchell Santner but Latham, fielding at forward short leg, moved swiftly to his right and plucked the ball out of the air.Henry finished with career-best figures of 4-93.South Africa hold a 1-0 lead in the three-match series having won the second game in Wellington by eight wickets.The first Test in Dunedin ended in a draw with the entire final day washed out SOUTH AFRICA 1st innings (Overnight: 123-4)D.

Starters play bulk of minutes in Syracuse’s 19-point win over Yellow Jackets

first_img Published on February 7, 2016 at 6:38 pm Contact Connor: [email protected] | @connorgrossman On the heels of an ugly first half in which Syracuse shot only 2-of-14 from 3-point land, the Orange continued to feed its long-range specialist.Brianna Butler’s first 3-point attempt of the second stanza clanked off the iron and into the hands of Briana Day. She fed Butler again. The 5-foot-11 senior heaved up another prayer, and this time it fell through to draw SU within three.Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman stuck with his starters after a poor opening act, and the veteran core rewarded his faith by outscoring Georgia Tech by 25 in the latter 20 minutes to cement the win.“I haven’t done it in 10 years, I’ve never switched the lineup (after halftime),” Hillsman said. “I don’t even think I’ve ever switched my starters in 10 years.“I think once you get into a flow and you get into a subbing pattern you have to stick with that and have some kind of continuity.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU’s head coach, who doesn’t allow his starting five to take the floor individually before games because he believes he has seven starters, didn’t cycle through his team’s bench. Four of Syracuse’s (18-6, 8-3 Atlantic Coast) five starters, Isabella Slim notwithstanding, played 32 or more minutes for the first time this season in a 71-52 win over Georgia Tech (14-10, 4-7) in the Carrier Dome Sunday afternoon.In spite of a slow start, Hillsman only turned to reserve players Bria Day, Taylor Ford, Danielle Minott, Maggie Morrison and Julia Chandler for an average of three minutes each in the first half. The bench stood idle even longer in the second, with only eight combined bench minutes aside from Cornelia Fondren.But that’s when SU took off and cushioned a lead with 34 combined points from Peterson and Briana Day.“Now that I think about it, we didn’t really sub as much as we normally would,” Peterson said. “I think that just attributes to how deep we are.“We can play the starters the whole game or we can sub in and keep attacking and keep that same pressure.”Hillsman attributed the lack of subbing to a series of live-ball turnovers that didn’t lend itself to clock stoppages. As his starters began to gel in the second half, he had no inspiring first-half bench play to recall upon.He plucked Morrison off the bench to replace Brittney Sykes in the first quarter. She proceeded to air ball a 3-point attempt and miss another one 27 seconds later before returning to the bench after a two-plus minute hiatus.Sykes promptly returned and played a total of 32 minutes, the second-most she’s recorded since playing 37 against North Carolina on Jan. 7. She was a key cog to Syracuse’s press that helped force 35 turnovers, including a key takeaway that she fed to Briana Day for an and-one layup that put SU up for the first time in the second half.“It can definitely be tiring at times,” Butler said of playing in the Orange’s aggressive defense. “Especially late in the season, this is when you have to step up your conditioning … to be able to play these long minutes.”Syracuse relied heavily on Briana Day’s double-double to put away the Yellow Jackets, leaving minimal opportunity for Chandler to cycle in as the big. Peterson is the only SU player averaging more than 30 minutes a game, and Hillsman isn’t keen on yo-yoing her on and off the court. Butler is often SU’s best shooting option.So Hillsman stuck with Butler, Sykes, Peterson, Briana Day and primarily Fondren. It was the combination that sunk SU into a 10-point hole, and the one that rocketed the Orange ahead for a 19-point win.“We just had a certain energy,” Peterson said. “He didn’t really want to break that.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Charles Barkley calls LaVar Ball an ‘ol’ big mouth, jacka— dad’ after Big Baller Brand fallout

He’s averaging 9.9 points and 5.4 assists while shooting 32.9 percent from 3-point range in 2018-19.The Lakers have been eliminated from playoff contention and have a 33-41 record entering Wednesday’s game at the Jazz. Lakers star LeBron James proud Lonzo Ball is ‘taking control’ of situation with Big Baller Brand Lakers’ Lonzo Ball permanently covers up Big Baller Brand tattoo Related Newscenter_img Charles Barkley didn’t mince words when talking about LaVar Ball.The TNT analyst appeared on ESPN’s “Get Up!” Wednesday morning to discuss the fallout around the family’s Big Baller Brand, which took a massive hit last week when it was discovered LaVar’s friend and business partner, Alan Foster, reportedly stole $1.5 million from the company. This prompted Lakers guard Lonzo Ball to sever ties with the brand, scrubbing his social media accounts with anything Big Baller related and even covering up his “BBB” tattoo. Host Jalen Smith asked Barkley his opinion about Big Baller Brand potentially folding and Lonzo Ball cutting ties with the company to “be his own man,” which prompted a harsh response from Barkley.”Well, he should have been his own man from the beginning,” Barkley said. “You can’t let your family members try to piggyback on your success… This thing has been a disaster from Day 1 and it was never going to work. And I feel bad because it’s this ol’ big mouth, jacka— dad that’s put his kids in an awkward situation all year.last_img read more
