I thought about doing the fist pump around the bases, but we’ll wait until we get to the World Series for that, hopefully.”Turner drove in every run for Los Angeles, going the other way for a tying single in the fifth before sending a long shot to center field off John Lackey in the ninth. A fan wearing a blue Dodgers jersey reached over a railing to catch the ball on the fly.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smogTurner’s second homer of the postseason ended another dramatic night for the Dodgers, who remained unbeaten in these playoffs and moved within two wins of their first World Series appearance since 1988.“It’s very cool, and J.T., we were talking about it in there after the game,” manager Dave Roberts said. “Twenty-nine years to the day. It was special. Our guys feel it.” Game 3 in the best-of-seven series is Tuesday night at Wrigley Field in Chicago. Midseason acquisition Yu Darvish starts for the Dodgers against Kyle Hendricks.Yasiel Puig drew his third walk of the game leading off the ninth, and Charlie Culberson bunted him to second. After losing pitcher Brian Duensing struck out pinch-hitter Kyle Farmer, Chicago manager Joe Maddon went to the bullpen for the 38-year-old Lackey, who pitched on consecutive days for the first time in his 15-year career.Lackey got the call over All-Star closer Wade Davis, and the veteran starter walked Chris Taylor on six tense pitches.Turner stepped up and ended it with his fourth career playoff homer. He’s been at his best in October, batting .377 with 22 RBIs in the postseason.“We’ve been doing it all year long,” Turner said. “We’re never out of a game. As long as we have outs left, we’re going to keep fighting.”Completing the poetry of the moment, a fan in a Chase Utley jersey in the center-field bleachers caught the ball in his glove.ADVERTISEMENT View comments MOST READ Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Javier Baez, the other co-MVP of last season’s NLCS for Chicago, got to third base in the third with one out, but also was stranded.UP NEXTCubs: Hendricks dominated Chicago’s playoff opener with seven scoreless innings against the Nationals, but yielded four runs in four innings during the team’s wild Game 5 victory in Washington.

Addison Russell homered in the fifth for the Cubs, who are down early in this rematch of the 2016 NLCS. Chicago won that series in six games and went on to its first World Series championship since 1908, while the Dodgers have been absent from the Fall Classic since 1988.Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen got the victory with a hitless ninth despite hitting Anthony Rizzo on the hand with a one-out pitch. That ended the Los Angeles bullpen’s impressive streak of 22 straight Cubs retired to begin the NLCS, but the Dodgers have thrown eight hitless and scoreless innings of relief in the NLCS.After a collective offensive effort drove the Dodgers to a 5-2 win in Game 1, Turner did it all in Game 2. He has 10 RBIs in the Dodgers’ five postseason games, getting five in the playoff opener against Arizona.Jon Lester yielded three hits and five walks while failing to get out of the fifth inning in the shortest start of his long postseason career, but the Dodgers couldn’t take advantage of a rare shaky night by the Cubs’ star left-hander.Rich Hill struck out eight in five more impressive innings for the Dodgers, but he was pulled for pinch-hitter Curtis Granderson in the fifth in a debatable decision by Roberts.Russell was off to a 4-for-22 start in the postseason with nine strikeouts before the slugging shortstop put a leadoff homer into the short porch in left field.Turner evened it moments later by poking a single to right after a leadoff double by Culberson, the Dodgers’ improbably successful replacement for injured All-Star shortstop Corey Seager.The Dodgers chased Lester with two outs in the fifth, but reliever Carl Edwards Jr. came through after several recent postseason struggles, striking out pinch-hitter Chase Utley and then pitching a strong sixth.Lester was the co-MVP of last season’s NLCS, winning Game 5 at Dodger Stadium and yielding two runs over 13 innings in the series. He had nothing near the same success against the Dodgers’ revamped lineup in this one, issuing four walks in the first four innings and repeatedly escaping jams.Dodgers third base coach Chris Woodward held up Turner in the third when it appeared he could have scored from first on Cody Bellinger’s double to the gap.
The National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL) has contributed US$150,000 to the Ebola Trust Fund to assist government in its effort to fight the spread of the deadly Ebola virus in Liberia.Making the presentation Thursday, Sept 4, at the company’s head office in Monrovia, the president and Chief Executive Officer of NOCAL, Dr. Randolph AKW McClain, said the donation was intended to support government’s initiatives to curb the spread of the virus.Dr. McClain spoke of the immeasurable human toll of the virus on families, its crippling effect on the economy and the additional burden on government’s efforts to provide the basic needed services for its people.The NOCAL president, on behalf of the company’s Board of Directors, management and staff, extended sympathy to families, who have lost loved ones to the virus and thanked health workers and other individuals and institutions for contributing to the effort to fight the Ebola epidemic.He urged citizens and other residents to play their part by contributing as well and adhering to the measures put in place by the Ministry of Health & Social Welfare and the National Ebola Task Force to help stop the spread of Ebola and save more lives, adding, “this fight will only succeed if we all join hands and work together to contain Ebola.”In response, the Deputy Minister of Finance for Fiscal Affairs, Dr. James F. Kollie, on behalf of the Minister of Finance, thanked the NOCAL family for the gesture, which he said represented the single largest contribution by any public or private local entity. He assured NOCAL that the funds would be used exclusively towards the fight against Ebola.Dr. Kollie said while government is seeking more funding and contributions are being made, each citizen and resident must take personal responsibility to ensure that the transmission of the virus is broken and brought under control.The September 4th contribution represents the latest significant contribution NOCAL has made towards the national effort to contain the spread of the Ebola epidemic in Liberia. Last week, NOCAL presented Personal Protective Equipment to the Ministry of Health & Social Welfare, valued at more than US $84,000.00 (eighty-four thousand dollars). The company also presented several materials to a local Non-Governmental Organization, ‘Feed the Future’ in its effort to support the fight against Ebola.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Today is Ash Wednesday and the day when millions of smokers around the world will try to give up the dreaded cigarettes.Here Justin Toner of the Opal Hypnosis Centre explains why he has an 85% success rate at helping smokers win the battle to give up.Most smokers, if given the choice would choose to be a non-smoker, but they continue to smoke because of the fear of… – Putting on weight (For a Free Weight Loss Guide, visit http://MindAndBodyWeightLoss.com)– Not being able to cope with the stresses of the day– Quitting and still craving cigarettes– Becoming irritable to everyone around them Most smokers feel controlled by cigarettes. The good news is that it is possible to stop without suffering any of the above, and one of the quickest and easiest ways to becoming a non-smoker is with the aid of hypnosis.So let’s look at what hypnosis actually is…What is Hypnosis?Hypnosis is a natural state that everyone has the ability to enter into. In hypnosis, you are not asleep or unconscious but in a state were the mind is relaxed, similar to daydreaming. You are still aware of where you are and the environment around you, so you are not zonked out and left vulnerable to the commands of the hypnotist.In hypnosis, your mind does become open to suggestions of change, but the suggestions must be acceptable to the person that is receiving them, so NO, you cannot be made do anything against your will. When I am working with a client, I am not forcing them to do something that they do not want, I am helping them achieve something that they already have a desire for, and that is why a good hypnosis session can be so natural and successful.Can everyone be Hypnotised?Yes. Understand that hypnosis is a consent state; you have to give your permission to the hypnotist and allow him to guide you into that state of mind. You cannot be ‘forced’; so by following instructions, you can allow yourself to enter a wonderful state of physical and mental relaxation and permit the change to happen naturally.Your Conscious Mind: The conscious part of our mind is the rational, logical analytical thinking part of us. It knows good from bad and right from wrong. It is the part of your mind that knows all the reasons why you should quit smoking, and also the part that thinks of the excuses why you continue to smoke in an attempt to ease the guilt!Your Subconscious Mind:Unlike the conscious mind, the subconscious has no ability to judge; it cannot differentiate between positive and negative, nor constructive from destructive. In many ways it is similar to a computer and will just run whatever it is programmed with very effectively without analysing any pros or cons. Now, the primary function of the subconscious is to protect, but it ends up protecting all its programs, including our habitual patterns of behaviour which includes the smoking habit. Whatever we do through repetition, we get better at it. So we get really good at things that are really bad for us; smokers have perfected something that is really bad for them!Habits & Willpower:When it comes to making a change, consciously you know all the reasons why you should quit smoking – health, social stigma, expense etc and so you decide to quit relying only on your conscious willpower. But what is actually happening is your logical conscious mind (which knows all the benefits of quitting) is going in one direction, but the subconscious is still programmed with the habit of smoking so it’s moving in the opposite direction. This causes an internal conflict, and it is this inner conflict that causes the irritability, tension and even the desire to eliminate this horrible feeling by drowning it out with treat foods.This is the reason why most people are still smokers today – they don’t want to go through the suffering they went through in the past, or think that they are going to go through because they have heard it is so difficult to quick.How does Hypnosis Help?Hypnosis helps by making the change at the subconscious level of mind, so you end up thinking and feeling differently about cigarettes and smoking. It takes away the ‘fight’ or ‘struggle’ of quitting because it aligns your subconscious with your conscious desire to be a non-smoker, so you have the two parts of mind working together as a team rather than pulling apart from each other.Regardless of how many cigarettes you smoke, or for long you have been smoking, it is possible to stop without the suffering or withdrawal you may have faced in the past. By becoming a non-smoker, you are giving yourself the gift of health and the gift of life, and deep down inside, I’m sure you already knew that.Decide to take back that control of your life, and choose to become a non-smoker.For more information or to book an appointment,Call today – 074 910 3474 – The Opal Hypnosis Centre, Pearse Road, Letterkenny.GIVING UP SMOKING ON ASH WEDNESDAY – THE HYPNOSIS WAY! was last modified: February 22nd, 2012 by StephenShare 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:Ash WednesdayOPAL HYPNOSIS CENTRE
The World Cup winners saw off the Copa America holders in St Petersburg Lars Stindl struck the only goal as Germany beat Chile 1-0 to win the Confederations Cup in St Petersburg.Borussia Monchengladbach forward Stindl tapped home against the run of play after a defensive blunder midway through the first half as world champions Germany added another major trophy to their collection.Copa America winners Chile wasted a glut of goalscoring chances in either half and with the help of a superb stoppage-time save from goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Joachim Low’s side held on to win the tournament for the first time.After the two sides drew their group game 1-1 10 days ago Chile made the brighter start in the rematch and were clearly the better side throughout most of the first period.Alexis Sanchez flashed a shot wide in the second minute, Arturo Vidal’s effort from inside the penalty area was parried by Ter Stegen and Eduardo Vargas fired over the crossbar from 25 yards.Another effort from Vargas was well held by Ter Stegen as Chile looked the more likely to break the deadlock.Ter Stegen then spilled Vidal’s shot from outside the area into the path of Sanchez, but the Arsenal forward could not control the rebound and another chance went begging.Moments later Germany snatched a 20th-minute lead with their first meaningful effort on goal.Chile defender Marcelo Diaz gifted Timo Werner the ball on the edge of the box and the Germany striker ran on and turned the ball across goal for Stindl to tap into an empty net.The South Americans carved open the German defence again four minutes later, but the final ball into the box from Mauricio Isla flew beyond Charles Aranguiz with an equaliser beckoning.Germany finished the half strongly, with Leon Goretzka lashing an angled shot wide following Sebastian Rudy’s brilliant through-ball before Julian Draxler steered a low effort inches wide after being set up by Werner.Early in the second period, Gonzalo Jara’s last-ditch block deflected Draxler’s shot wide before Serbian referee Milorad Mazic booked Bayern Munich team-mates Joshua Kimmich and Vidal following a fracas as the game turned feisty.Mazic called on the video assistant referee just after the hour mark when Jara appeared to strike Werner in the jaw with his elbow as he challenged for the ball. But the VAR review courted more controversy when Mazic opted to show the fortunate Chile defender a yellow card.Chile began to threaten again with 20 minutes left. Vargas’s low shot on the turn inside the area was gathered by Ter Stegen and Vidal thumped the ground in frustration after lashing his effort off target.Edson Puch set up fellow Chile substitute Angelo Sagal for another gilt-edged chance in the 85th minute, but the latter blazed over from eight yards.Ter Stegen denied Chile again in time added on, diving low to his left to keep out Sanchez’s free-kick from just outside the area to ensure victory for Low’s experimental squad. 1

Tags: DortmundGerman BundesligaLeipzig Both sides enter the contest in good form. (PHOTO/Courtesy)Unlike in the past seasons, the German Bundesliga looks to be on course to one hell of a competitive campaign.The top five sides are separated by just six points and it would shock anyone to know that seven-time defending champions Bayern are sixth, yes you heard me right, sixth and six points adrift of top spot.It would be interesting if the other five sides keep up form and push the Bavarians to limits that they have not been pushed to in the past.Top spot is currently occupied by RB Leipzig, arguably the best side in the Bundesliga this season.The appointment of 32-year old tactician Julian Nagelsmann is doing wonders for the Red Bull financed side and they look like the best bet to push Bayern all the way.After winning all their first three games, the Red Bulls endured a frustrating next six games as they won just once in that period.However, they have now won all their past six games, scoring 25 goals and conceding just six goals.That form cannot be matched by anyone in the top 7 leagues in Europe and it comes as no surprise that Leipzig are top of the Bundesliga.The front four of Timo Werner, Emile Forsberg, Marcel Sabitzer and Patrik Schick have been magnificent of late and are showing no signs of slowing down any time soon.Among the four, Werner has been grabbing the headlines with his fine scoring form that has seen him score in all his last six games.His tally of 16 goals can only be bettered by Bayern’s goal-machine Robert Lewandowski who has netted two more (18).It will take some stopping for Leipzig to slow down but they need not to get carried away as both Bayern and Dortmund do possess the quality to overtake them at a given point.After holding Bayern to a 1-1 draw earlier in the season, Leipzig will face another big test in form of Dortmund on Tuesday night as the two sides face off at the Singal Induna Park.Dortmund too have been faring well in the past couple of weeks as they have won all their past three games, scoring 11 goals whilst conceding just one.The improvement in form has seen BVB climb into third, four points behind Leipzig.Tuesday’s encounter offers a chance for Lucien Favre’s side to close the gap to just one and do a huge favour to the others in the chasing pack.With Jadon Sancho, Marco Reus and Thorgan Hazard all in good form, Dortmund have a good chance to stop Leipzig especially with the fixture happening in their own back-yard.Both sides have a few absentees going into the game with Axel Witsel, Tomas Delaney and Marcel Schmelzer all doubtful for Dortmund. Leipzig on the other hand are expected to miss the services of Kevin Kampl, Willy Orban, Ibrahima Konate and Tayler Adams.Last season, Dortmund were double winners over Leipzig including a 4-1 hammering at the Signal Induna Park in the reverse fixture. Leipzig have triumphed just once away to Dortmund since promotion to the top tier in 2016 with the victory coming in October 2017.As Dortmund and Leipzig clash, there is another interesting battle at the other end of the table with 14th-placed Mainz away to Werder Bremen (15th). The other two day’s fixtures will see Augsburg host Fortuna Dusseldorf while Hoffenheim are away to Union Berlin.The other five match-day 16 fixtures will be played on Wednesday.All the German Bundesliga match-day 16 fixturesTuesday, 17-12-2019-Werder Bremen vs Mainz 05 @8:30pm-Borussia Dortmund vs RB Leipzig @10:30pm-Augsburg vs Dusseldorf @10:30pm-Union Berlin vs Hoffenheim @10:30pmWednesday, 18-12-2019-Bayer Leverkusen vs Hertha Berlin @8:30pm-Borussia Monchengladbach vs Paderborn @10:30pm-Wolfsburg vs Schalke O4 @10:30pm-Eintracht Frankfurt vs Koln @10:30pm-Freiburg vs Bayern Munich @10:30pmComments
