Derrick Rose Return: Former NBA MVP Poised To Hit The Paint
Huffington Post - over 3 years
DEERFIELD, Ill. — Derrick Rose's long-awaited return is just about complete. The former MVP point guard was back wearing his familiar uniform No. 1, looking ready to lead the Chicago Bulls back to contention in the Eastern Conference after sitting out a season following knee surgery. He said Friday at the team's media day he understands why fans were frustrated he didn't return last season, but he had to be careful. "Of course, I would want my favorite player to be back out there," Rose said. "At the same time, I have to be selfish with the idea. The thought of me injuring myself again, I don't want to put myself in that position. I just tried to stay far away from it and just think everything through and stay positive." One big concern for him was his ability to handle double teams, particularly in the playoffs. He never felt ready to face them. His confidence is not an issue now, though. He has said he sees no reason why he can't dominate again, and he has no regrets about the ...

HIGHLIGHTS: Durant Puts 52
Huffington Post Sports - about 4 years
DALLAS -- Kevin Durant hardly seemed bothered by O.J. Mayo's tying 3-pointer in the final seconds of regulation. It just gave the Oklahoma City star a chance for a career high and the first 50-point game in the NBA this season. Durant scored 52 points, including the go-ahead basket with 16.9 seconds remaining in overtime, and the Thunder turned away a big Dallas rally for a 117-114 victory that extended their winning streak to six games and ended the Mavericks' season-best run of four straight. A night after being voted a starter for the All-Star game, Durant had a little trouble from the field, going 13 of 31. But he was 21 of 21 from the foul line, and the Thunder made all 12 of their free throws in the fourth quarter. That looked as though it would be enough to hold off the Mavericks until Mayo hit his tying 3-pointer with two defenders in his face with 2.3 seconds left in regulation. Vince Carter, who kept the Mavericks close when Oklahoma City threat ...

Justin Bieber pot-smoking claim is news to police
LATimes - about 4 years
Photos of Justin Bieber appearing to smoke marijuana at a Newport Beach party have made their way all over Internet gossip sites. But they apparently have not found their way to the Newport Beach Police Department. Officials there said Tuesday night they were unaware of the photos. Sgt. Mike James didn’t say whether the department was planning to investigate, acknowledging that before being contacted by Times Community News he hadn’t heard anything about it. In the photo, said to be taken Jan. 2 at a Newport Beach hotel room party, Bieber is holding what appears to be a marijuana cigarette while sitting with fellow partiers and a couple of empty beer bottles. The incident comes two weeks after a photographer who was trying to snap a picture of Bieber's Ferrari on the 405 Freeway was struck and killed by a passing car. In the aftermath, Bieber called for new anti-paparazzi measures. Some have cheered Bieber's call for more laws, but others believe it would be a waste of tim ...

Wimbledon heartache for Halton ace Katy as Italian veteran ends her SW19 dream
The Bucks Herald - over 4 years
Halton tennis starlet Katy Dunne is hoping for a wildcard to Junior Wimbledon after losing a qualifying match for the senior competition on Tuesday afternoon. The 17-year-old Everyball International Academy player emerged victorious from her final match in the British Wimbledon’s pre-qualifying event with an assured performance over Emily Webly-Smith. The result meant Katy took to the courts at Roehampton on Tuesday dreaming of playing her way into the women’s competition of the world famous grass court event. But, in what was her first ever senior grand slam match, it was not to be as Katy was beaten 6-1, 6-1 by 30-year-old Italian veteran Maria Elena Camerin – 13 years her elder. However, just making the qualifying event – which would have required her to win four matches to make the tournament proper – was a huge success for Katy. The teen hit all the big points in a 6-3, 6-3 win over Webley-Smith (ranked 397th in the world) to put herself in contention to play the likes of ...

2012 NBA Playoffs: Chicago Bulls Need to Stay Mentally Strong with No Rose
Bleacher Report - almost 5 years
Saturday afternoon was supposed to be a day filled with exciting NBA news. It wound up being a day of bad news for two teams in the Eastern Conference that lost key players to serious knee injuries. The Chicago Bulls lost reigning MVP Derrick Rose in a win against the Philadelphia 76ers, while the New York Knicks lost rookie guard Iman Shumpert in a loss to the Miami Heat. The Chicago Bulls learned shortly after the game that Rose is going to miss the remainder of the season. Rose is clearly the best player in Chicago—there is no doubt about that. This season was a tough one for the high-flying point guard, as he played in only 39 games while dealing with various injuries but was looking to prepare himself physically for the postseason. The Bulls held the best record in the Eastern Conference and were looking to do some damage in the postseason. The news comes at a bad time for a Bulls team looking to make huge strides this season. However, as bad as the news is regarding Ros ...

How leatherback turtles grow huge on a diet of jelly | Not Exactly Rocket Science
Discover Magazine - almost 5 years
Imagine eating nothing but jelly all your life. It’s hardly the richest source of food, and you might expect an animal with such a menu to be small and feeble.  You’d be wrong. The leatherback turtle eats jellyfish and little else, but it grows up to 640 kilograms in weight, and can migrate over thousands of kilometres. How can such a powerful giant subsist on such ethereal meals? This is not an easy question to answer. Leatherbacks feed well below the ocean surface, and the jellyfish they seek are found in dense but sparse patches. Finding the animals, and studying their eating habits, is very challenging. Mike James from Dalhousie University, Canada, did it by attaching small video cameras to the shells of 19 turtles. She tracked the animals off the eastern coast of Canada, where they gather in large numbers during the summer. As they came up for air, James dleftly pasted the cameras onto their backs. The devices recorded continuously for a few hours and James tracked them via GP ...
