first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionExtremists on both sides hurt country History has proven that our country does better as a centrist nation.The extremists of each political party have turned us against each other, causing major problems. This was before President Trump ever came to power. Check it out with a reliable source, not just your favorite political site. Look at all sides of the political spectrum.How can we solve any of our country’s problems if we just dig in? Come on and let’s use some common sense. We have the greatest country in the world. Let’s not give in to the way of socialism, communism or any of the “isms.” Let’s solve our country’s problems together in a reasonable fashion.Carol Phillips GoldsteinNiskayunaSchenectady rolled out the red carpet44,000. That is how many people came to our downtown over the past two weeks to see Hamilton at Proctors. Not to mention the thousands who came for other events at Proctors or movies at Bow Tie or the thousands who came to Mohawk Harbor.Hamilton made them happy. So did organized parking done by LAZ; welcoming knowledgeable ambassadors organized by our City Mission; fabulous food by our many restaurants and pubs, security and emergency response by our police and firefighters; clean and beautified streets managed by our city and our Downtown Schenectady Improvement Corporation; a beautifully lit Jay Street and buildings and bridges and all the development that Metroplex makes possible; and hundreds of people who tirelessly volunteer to usher, greet, feed, bartend and basically make Proctors work for its audience and its theatrical guests.Schenectady has become a visitor place, and based on the results of the past weeks, we do a fabulous job.Thank you to every person and every business that helped make us all look so good.Philip MorrisSchenectadyThe writer is CEO of Proctors.Order mental health tests for bicyclistsHere’s a very simple solution to the bicyclists problem, and I used it often as a police officer.It’s called Section 941 of the Mental Hygiene Law (MHL). If the bicyclists are riding in the middle of the road and coming within inches of cars presumptively traveling at 30 mph, this is indicative of someone who is suicidal or a danger to others.Take two or three of the ringleaders and bring them to Ellis for a 72-hour evaluation. The parents will have to respond to the hospital, pick the child up and pay all associated medical costs. The bicycles would be impounded at the police department and released when an evidence tech is available (and they are pretty busy officer, if you know what I mean).These teenagers who are not of arrestable age yet think they are untouchable. Nothing could be further from the truth. This would only take about an hour or so for the officers to process, and once you did it a few times, problem solved. You may even get to the bottom of what is troubling these poor young disadvantaged youth.Patrick T. Horan GuilderlandThe writer is a retired Schenectady Police Department officer and a retired SSGT, USAF.NRA, politicians put money above livesRegarding the mass shootings in the United States: The NRA pays off the politicians and gave Trump $30 million for his campaign so they can get more members. They do this because money is more important than lives. There are very few mass shootings in Canada, Ireland, London, Paris or Italy because there’s no NRA in those places.Concetta CannizzaroNiskayuna U.S. forfeits freedom in USMCA trade deal Will the Republic known as the United States of America survive, as we know it, if Congress approves the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (trade agreement) and make it the law of the land? If we Americans are to preserve our God-given rights and our national sovereignty, we must convince Congress to reject USMCA, which is a stepping-stone toward a European Union-style North American union. The USMCA is promoted as a free trade agreement. However, it is anything but free trade. Lowering of tariffs is merely a facade for a managed regional integration scheme, the objective of which is no less than a regional integration toward world government. Free trade presupposes the free flow of goods across borders without the intervention by government. However, international organizations and/or agreements such as USMCA, WTO and TPP, to name a few, do not seek to remove government from international trade, but rather empower unelected government bodies to administer regional and global rules and regulations to override the sovereign state. USMCA is a dangerous agreement as it further opens us up to international control, which we don’t want or need. Please contact your congressional representatives to voice your opposition to USMCA. George Van SchaickSchenectady  New Yorkers have had enough of wasteThe Aug. 16 editorial “Another Sign of Waste in NY” reveals that Gov. Andrew Cuomo has ordered recently installed signs for the new “Tappan Zee/Gov. Mario Cuomo” bridge be removed and remade (again) because the former governor’s middle initial is missing. At what point do we, the taxpayers of New York state, say enough is enough? At what point do we hold the governor and legislators responsible for their fiduciary abuse and neglect?Since Cuomo became governor in 2011, New York has been No. 1 in highest overall individual tax burden, yet we suffer statewide crumbling infrastructure, crippling regulations, outlandish Albany corruption, tax rates that continue to soar and are further widened in subtle disguise as licensing, permit, fee, surcharge, service charge, etc.Since Gov. Andrew has been governor, New York state (including New York City) suffers the greatest exodus of tax-paying residents in our history — tax-paying residents and businesses who escape New York for other friendlier, more stable and less burdensome taxed states. According to the U.S. Census: The population of the United States is growing. However, New York is losing population at a greater rate than any other state in the union. In just one year, between  July 1, 2017, and July 1, 2018, New York lost 48,500 in population.The abuse New York taxpayers endure from Gov. Cuomo’s narcissistic and careless governing, coupled with the neglectful spending approved by our state legislators, is outrageous. The average New York taxpayer cannot continue like this, and our rapid loss of population proves it.  Don DeMarcoSchenectadyReimbursement caps have consequences Congress is wisely seeking to give patients a break by tackling the problem of unexpected medical bills.But as with anything in the medical field, the important question is about side effects. Proposals that cap rates on reimbursements can create more problems than they solve.Side effects may include doctor shortages, especially in rural communities, as we have seen in California after that state capped out of network rates. Further side effects may include a shrinking number of “in-network” options as insurance companies lower their costs and maximize their profits thanks to the leverage this system gives them over doctors and hospitals. As a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in couple’s therapy, trauma, grief and women’s issues, this is a matter that concerns me greatly — especially in the most unfortunate situations when a woman suffers abuse and needs immediate intervention and treatment.While such proposals might have good intentions about taking the surprise out of medical billing, they would also make it more difficult for patients to see a doctor or other health care provider. We should look to proven solutions instead of trying to treat a sickness with a cure worse than the disease.Dr. Mo Therese Hannah, PhD. LathamMore from The Daily Gazette:Gov.

first_imgENGLAND will play three Tests in the space of 21 days when the international summer gets under way in July.The series against West Indies will begin on July 8 at the Ageas Bowl, followed by Tests at Emirates Old Trafford on July 16 and July 24.The three matches will be played behind closed doors at the bio-secure venues, which both have hotels on site.West Indies arrive on June 9 and will be based at Old Trafford for initial quarantine and training.The original schedule, which featured Tests at The Kia Oval, Edgbaston and Lord’s between June 4 and June 29, was postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic.Former England batsman Jonathan Trott said players would be “refreshed and chomping at the bit to get going”.“When you think of playing for England, you always think of packed houses,” Trott told BBC Radio 5 Live.“It’s going to be a little bit different behind closed doors but not dissimilar to playing away at some grounds overseas.”The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said a decision on series against Pakistan, Australia and Ireland will be taken at a later date.ECB director of events Steve Elworthy said: “We are in daily dialogue with government and our medical team. These are our proposed dates and they remain subject to government approval.”Edgbaston, in Birmingham, has been selected as a contingency venue and will be used to stage additional training throughout July.Last week, the ECB asked a 55-player group to return to training.England women’s summer schedule will be determined at a later date with Lisa Keightley’s side set to play series against India and South Africa.The domestic county season, which was due to start on April 12, has been postponed until at least 1 August.‘A BIG STEP’Analysis by BBC cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew:There is a lot of detail still to be finalised but this is a big step. West Indies were due to be touring now but have agreed to a rescheduled format which sees three back-to-back Tests played on two grounds within three weeks.There will be no spectators and everybody who is closely involved in the matches will be housed in the on-site hotels that have made this series possible.There will be regular testing and quarantine zones for anyone suspected of having contracted COVID-19.The ECB remains hopeful of more international cricket being staged later in the summer.Tests scheduleFirst Test v West Indies: July 8-12, SouthamptonSecond Test v West Indies: July 16-20, Old TraffordThird Test v West Indies: July 24-28, Old Trafford.

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 10, 2014 at 8:20 pm Point guard: Tyler Ennis, 11.7 PPG and 5.6 APG & Nate Britt, 6.0 PPG and 2.8 APGSyracuse’s star senior errr… freshman point guard has been nothing short of phenomenal this season, posting a 4.7 assist-to-turnover ratio, which includes just 18 turnovers in 15 games. He can score but doesn’t need to to be effective. Like Ennis, Britt is a freshman point guard. But unlike Ennis, he plays like one. His assist-to-turnover ratio stands at a paltry 1.5 and he has struggled to shoot. On the season Britt is shooting 37.3 percent from the field, and a measly 16.7 from beyond the arc. Advantage: SyracuseShooting guard: Trevor Cooney, 13.9 PPG and 45.3 3PT% & Marcus Paige, 17 PPG and 4.4 APGCooney came into the season as SU’s biggest wildcard after a putrid 2012-13 campaign. But it didn’t take long to show he had turned a corner, splashing 7-of-8 from long range in a season-opening win against Cornell. The redshirt sophomore also averages 2.1 steals per game. Cooney is a good scoring option for SU, but Paige is the best scoring option for UNC. Paige scored 32 points against then-No. 3 Louisville, and 23 against then-No. 11 Kentucky, and can beat defenses in may ways. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAdvantage: North CarolinaSmall Forward: C.J Fair, 17.2 PPG and 5.6 RPG & J.P. Tokoto, 10.1 PPG and 5.7 RPGWhile Fair has earned superstar status for the Orange, Tokoto, a sophomore, is making his way up the same ladder. He has been handed a larger role this season and he’s done well with the opportunity. He’s shown flashes of brilliance defensively, collecting five steals and four blocks against Davidson on Dec. 21. He’s also gotten stronger with the basketball, having given up only 30 turnovers in 415 minutes compared to 31 in 302 minutes last season. But Fair’s leadership and play this season puts him on a different level than most players in the country. Advantage: Syracuse Power forward: Jerami Grant, 12.3 PPG and 6.1 RPG & James Michael McAdoo, 14.4 PPG and 6.5 RPGGrant has freak athleticism, skying high for shot blocks and massive dunks in the early going. He’s scored in double figures in 11 of his 14 games this season, and is coming off a double-double against Virginia Tech. Grant may not start every game, but he’s almost always on the court at the end of games. The way people talk about Grant is the way they used to talk about McAdoo. McAdoo’s the proverbial star that never was. His scoring numbers, while good, have not increased from last year. He’s an offensive threat, and is capable of having a big game, but he’s also capable of flopping like he did during a four-game stretch this season where he averaged just eight points per contest.Advantage: Syracuse Center: Rakeem Christmas, 5.6 PPG and 3.9 RPG & Joel James: 3.7 PPG and 4.4 RPGChristmas has developed into a far more dangerous scoring threat than he was last season. Yet his defense in the 2-3 zone still leaves much to be desired. Like Syracuse, UNC is dealing with injuries at the center position. James was out the previous four games before returning to play in eight minutes against Miami. James has started in every game he’s played but has yet to record double figures in either rebounds or points scored.
