Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs

first_img Photos: Lakers defeat Trail Blazers in Game 4 of first-round playoff series Video: What LeBron James said about Jacob Blake … ‘Black people in America are scared’ Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook and other NBA stars pay tribute to Kobe Bryant “I think anytime you’re pushed to be at your best, it strengthens your group,” Coach Frank Vogel said Wednesday. “And I think that would apply with a strong first-round opponent.”The Clippers are playing a Dallas team that outshot them as the No. 1 offensive team in the league led by their rising star point guard Luka Doncic.“Best offensive team in history, right?” Coach Doc Rivers said Wednesday night after the series was set. “They have one of the young stars (Doncic). They’re a two-star team now. (Kristaps) Porzingis is playing great. I mean, I look at that, that’s a tough matchup in the first round, that’s what it is.”Teams are playing from the unusual position of not having a true home-court advantage, aside from graphics and recorded court sounds intended to give the slightest of edges to the “home” team. The playoffs also will be played in a compacted schedule without travel days — since there’s no travel and all games will be played in the bubble.Mon., Aug. 17: Mavericks at Clippers, Game 1, 6 p.m., ESPN For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Tues., Aug. 18: TBD at Lakers, Game 1, 6 p.m., TNTWed., Aug. 19: Mavericks at Clippers, Game 2, 6 p.m., TNTThurs., Aug. 20: TBD at Lakers, Game 2, 6 p.m., ESPNFri., Aug. 21: Clippers at Mavericks, Game 3, 6 p.m., TNTSat., Aug. 22: Lakers at TBD, Game 3, 5:30 p.m., ABCSun., Aug. 23: Clippers at Mavericks, Game 4, ABCMon., Aug. 24: Lakers at TBD, Game 4, TNTTues., Aug. 25: Mavericks at Clippers, Game 5 (if necessary)Wed., Aug. 26: TBD at Lakers, Game 5 (if necessary)Thurs., Aug. 27: Clippers at Mavericks, Game 6 (if necessary)Fri., Aug. 28: Lakers at TBD, Game 6 (if necessary)Sat., Aug. 29: Mavericks at Clippers, Game 7 (if necessary)Sun., Aug. 30: TBD at Lakers, Game 7 (if necessary)Related Articles LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — While the full field of the NBA playoffs remains to be set, the Lakers and Clippers now know when the playoffs start for them, and what days they’ll be playing for the next month.The top two seeds in the Western Conference will be playing late games at AdventHealth Arena, the largest venue on the Disney campus.The Clippers begin their series with Dallas on Monday night, the first day of the postseason, with a 6 p.m. (PDT) game on ESPN, while the Lakers will begin Tuesday with their Game 1 against the winner of the play-in: Memphis, Portland or Phoenix.Both the Clippers and the Lakers have said they have nerves heading into the postseason. The Lakers face the prospect of perhaps facing the red-hot Trail Blazers or Suns, who in the bubble have outperformed otherwise mediocre seasons. The Lakers will have a lot of down time over the weekend, which could either give them the rest they need, or disrupt their rhythm against a team that will have to keep fighting to stave off elimination on Saturday and possibly Sunday.

Maintaining Mental and Emotional Wellbeing During a Pandemic

first_imgFacebook326Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Community Youth ServicesCommunity Youth Services (CYS) Chief Clinical Officer, Alicia Ferris, recently offered some useful tips to help during the challenges and stress of social-distancing, closures and self isolation.  Her work at CYS oversees the Integrated Counseling Division, working with young people and their families.  “Please have a read as I hope it is helpful to you all in caring for yourself, each other and our community in the new world we find ourselves in at the moment” Ferris said. The word Pandemic sounds dramatic and scary but that is what we are experiencing at the moment. It’s shocking and certainly unnerving at the very least. For some of us, however, this experience can feel incredibly stressful. The amount of disruption to our every day life is making it necessary for us all to be in a somewhat constant state of adaptation and problem-solving through each new unanticipated challenge as we navigate a wide-spread health concern that is spanning the globe.Take Care of Yourself1) Self-care Isolation and Social Distancing are necessary for public health but also a recipe for poor mental health!! As such, while we follow the required and recommended public health guidelines, we also take extra measures to address our mental health and well being. Good Self-Care can address the heightened level of stress we are prone to feeling during this time of uncertainty and cascading challenges that result from this disruption in our lives. It’s important to press pause several times a day and breath, get outside, take a bath or shower, connect with family or friends or do something relaxing like meditation, listening to the birds outside or noticing the new buds and blooms of spring. Chronic stress has a negative effect on our health and wellbeing, including our immune systems!! So take a moment to take care of your heart and mind and be present.2) StructureThe impacts of isolation can sneak up on you but the first signs are typically a depressed mood or increased irritability. Being mindful of those and addressing it when it happens is key but prevention is even better. Given that our daily routines are likely disrupted through this, sometimes to a great extent, creating a new structure to your day through this time can be incredibly helpful. If you are telecommuting, try setting up a specific space in your home that you plan to work from. Your temporary “home office” should be inviting, peaceful, and allow you to focus on your work. Then plan to take timed breaks to step away from your work throughout the day. It may also be helpful to set up some new structure to starting and ending your day, given that you may no longer be leaving the house and coming home. Daily hygiene can be the first to go when we have the opportunity to stay in our pajamas all day, but it is not the best thing for our mental health. Try getting up, showering and getting dressed for the day, getting a bite of breakfast and making a quick daily to-do list before sitting down to start working.Creating new routines for kids and our relationships are important as well to help everyone adapt and adjust well during this time. There may be a need to reset some expectations of each other to keep conflict in the home to a minimum when we are home together with each other all day, every day.3) Stay ConnectedWhile we can’t hang out in groups or give each other hugs of support right now, we can certainly connect virtually to help lessen the impact of isolation. Reach out to friends and coworkers via phone or video chat to touch base. Check in on that elderly neighbor (while maintaining 6 feet of distance).4) Limit Screen Time and Stay ActiveScreen time can dramatically impact your mental health for the worse. Studies on watching television show that after the first hour of watching TV, our mood plummets in the second hour and further each hour after that. To fill down time and get your mind off things, try a good book or jigsaw puzzle. Establishing new activities to replace canceled recreational, creative or social group activities, etc is also critical. Try starting up a new hobby or getting back into an old one like finally doing those youtube classes on playing a guitar or finishing that old scrapbook or wood project you started.There is another dimension as well which is that although this outbreak affects everyone, it does not affect us all equally. Although we are all facing this bigger challenge together, we are not all facing the same types of challenges. So we need to exercise empathy towards each other and caution in making comparisons or broad statements.Homeless We hear a lot about those that are elderly or have significant medical conditions being more at risk of getting very sick or even dying from the virus. What we don’t hear as much is that those without housing are at significant risk and cannot isolate the way those that are housed can. Additionally, those that are homeless often have significantly more health concerns to begin with and have less access to facilities needed to maintain the hygiene we are hearing about everyday as a recommended precautionary measure.Financial InsecurityThose that have low-income, are living just at their means each day, or own a small business are at significant financial risk due to the shutdowns taking place. The impact on the economy has the potential to pull the rug out from under many people in our communities through reduced income or breaks in employment, or unanticipated expenses.Pre-Existing Mental Health ConditionsFor those of us that have significant mental health challenges such as anxiety, mood, trauma or obsessive-compulsive disorders, the events we are currently experiencing can be debilitating. This is obvious when you consider those who worry constantly, especially about germs, but even disorders like Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or Major Depressive Disorder can be exacerbated by the safety threat, potential isolation and potential loss that can come from this outbreak. Additionally, those that suffer from or are in recovery from Substance Use Disorders may have difficulty maintaining sobriety through these stressors and forced alteration of lifestyle.Counseling Tools Can HelpWith an event this big, sometimes it can be difficult to decipher what is a realistic concern and what isn’t. For those of us that manage anxiety daily in our normal lives, this can make it difficult to re-establish and maintain recovery. The common methods of treatment for anxiety, such as “reality testing”, can fail us in this new world of uncertainty, unknowns, and large-scale impacts.What we do know, is that no matter the reality outside our doors, there are tried and true evidence-based tools we can all use to stay grounded. By far the most important one is something called “Radical Acceptance”. Similar to the “Serenity Prayer” of Alcoholics Anonymous, “Radical Acceptance” is a simple but very powerful concept. It is accepting what is happening right now (instead of trying to fight it or deny it) and then focusing only on what you personally have control over and taking action in those areas. How do you know if you are trying to fight something? Generally, if the statement or thought contains the word “should”, then there is a lack of acceptance of that reality. By accepting what is and then focusing on what you can actually do about it, we empower ourselves and reduce feelings of helplessness, hopelessness and constant worry.Virtual Care is available for Mental Health ServicesThere are many other tools and resources that can help right now. Most mental health counselors at the moment are working on or have started to offer their usual in-person therapy through virtual platforms instead. This is called Telehealth or Telemedicine. It does not involve FaceTiming or Skyping with your therapist as there are strict regulations concerning security and confidentially that have to be adhered to. But certain tools or versions of tools such as Zoom, American Well, Doxy.me are allowed to be used for receiving counseling. There are hundreds out there that are safe and approved for counseling services. Some are companies themselves that you access a provider through and others are just a technology solution for your own therapist to use.Don’t forget that you are not in this alone. Please take the time to check-in with each other throughout this time. Community Youth Services is your place of employment but it is also your work family. Lets offer each other grace through this temporary challenge, wraparound each other and help each other get through this and not just survive but thrive.Community Youth Services (CYS) is currently offering virtual behavioral services to help those young people that may be feeling the effects of this pandemic.  Staff are scheduling one-on-one counseling sessions will be available based on present staffing and availability via telemedicine.CYS ParticipantsOur Behavioral Health treatment programs (Multisystemic Therapy and Transitional Age Youth Support) are both able to offer services via video (telemedicine) as of last Friday, March 13. Supported Employment is also being offered through telemedicine. For those currently in therapy elsewhere, we encourage them to check in with their providers to see if telehealth is an option. Many therapists and organizations are in the process of making the switch to offer telehealth given the current circumstances.As of today, Community Youth Services IS accepting NEW participants that may be needing virtual care for mental health services!  If you are, or know of a youth age 15 to 24 experiencing mental health or substance use disorders, as well families of youth ages 12 to 17 with disruptive behavior needing support, we ask you please call 360-918-7860, to get more information on the services now available to you.In addition to offering virtual services, as of Tuesday, March 17, CYS will be adjusting all other services in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. CYS recognizes that we are a critical resource for young people at-risk of or that are experiencing homelessness in our community and those needing behavioral health services.  We are making every effort to remain accessible and available to those who need our services, while also reducing contact and the likelihood of spreading COVID-19, adhering to the Governors statewide emergency proclamation.  We are committed to continuing to provide mental health services, peer support, and outreach to the extent possible. We are taking proactive measures to ensure the safety of our participants, staff, and community during this pandemic.Our office locations in Thurston, Lewis and Mason will be closed to the public beginning Tuesday, March 17, 2020 until further notice. We will reassess the situation weekly and update you via our website and other social media.Essential Services programs (Rosie’s/YAS, Haven House, New Directions) are being assessed on a daily basis and will stay open with certain precautions and changes in hours or capacity levels if needed based upon staffing wellness and availability or based on quarantine recommendations if warranted.Our street outreach staff will be conducting normal outreach Monday-Friday to provide support to vulnerable community members who are unsheltered – including delivering supplies and keeping youth up to date on safety and health recommendations. Drop -In hours at Rosie’s Place will be shifted and occupancy will be limited to meet safety standards.We will be actively seeking new information from health authorities as this public health emergency evolves, and we will update our response as needed.

Caballero comes up big for City in League Cup final

first_imgLONDON (AP):A week after letting in five goals, Willy Caballero made three saves in a penalty shoot-out against Liverpool to help Manchester City win the League Cup yesterday and claim their fifth major trophy since 2011.Though the Argentine goalkeeper is second-choice behind Joe Hart in the Premier League and the Champions League, he has been a regular in the cup teams fielded by coach Manuel Pellegrini. And Pellegrini’s faith in the 34-year-old keeper was duly rewarded with a memorable display in the penalty shoot-out after the two sides had ground out a 1-1 draw after extra time at Wembley Stadium.City started the second half brighter and took the lead in the 49th minute when Reds keeper Simon Mignolet failed to deal with a cross shot by Fernandinho. It should have been a routine save, but the ball went straight through Mignolet.Philippe Coutinho equalised for Liverpool in the 83rd minute from close range after an effort by Lallana hit the post and rebounded neatly into the path of the Brazilian midfielder.Caballero stood firm during the shoot-out, opting not to second-guess which way the Liverpool players would send their penalties. His decision paid dividends as the spot-kicks of Lucas Leiva, Coutinho, and Adam Lallana were all saved as City won the shoot-out 3-1.”I tried to see all the penalties last night, but my intuition got me through,” a tearful Caballero told Sky Sports on the Wembley turf. “It was a hard week for me, but we had a talk that we could do it.FIRST TROPHY”It’s important, emotional for me, my family, to be in this great team,” he added. “It is a first trophy for me and for my family in Argentina.”Pellegrini held firm to his decision to give Caballero a final berth despite calls by some City fans to catapult England’s number one, Hart, into the side to face Liverpool.”I prefer to lose the title than to lose my words,” Pellegrini said.Pellegrini, who is in his final months at City following the club’s announcement earlier in February that Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola is to join in the summer, heaped praise on both his goalkeepers.He said Caballero “deserved this moment” and that Hart’s demeanour over the decision showed him to be “a very good person” in addition to his traits as a top goalkeeper.Next up for City is Liverpool again in a league fixture on Wednesday.last_img read more

Testimony: ‘Bait’ a lure for militants

first_imgAn Army spokesman, Paul Boyce, said Monday that the Army does not discuss specific methods for “targeting enemy combatants” publicly, and that no classified program authorizes the use of “drop weapons” to make a killing appear justified. The court-martial of one of the accused soldiers, Spc. Jorge Sandoval Jr., is scheduled to begin in Baghdad on Wednesday. Under a program developed by a Defense Department warfare unit, Army snipers have begun using a new method to kill Iraqis suspected of being insurgents, planting fake weapons and bomb-making material as bait and then killing anyone who picks up them up, according to testimony presented in a military court. The existence of the classified “baiting program,” as it has come to be known, was disclosed as part of defense lawyers’ efforts to respond to murder charges the Army pressed this summer against three members of a Ranger sniper team. Each soldier is accused of killing an unarmed Iraqi in three separate incidents between April and June near Iskandariya. In sworn statements, soldiers testifying for the defense have said the sniper team was employing a baiting program developed by the Pentagon’s Asymmetrical Warfare Group, which met with and gave equipment to Ranger sniper teams in Iraq in January. The Washington Post first described the baiting program in an article Monday. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
