Their zone defense was effective early on in keeping the Ironmen in check.But in the second quarter, the Ironmen’s swarming defense forced eight Fairview turnovers while their offense outscored the Warriors by 13 to take a 25-15 halftime lead. Jaden Williams sparked the CCC run by coming off the bench to knock down two big 3-point shots. Deshaun Nettles exhibited a variety of moves in the paint, scoring ten first-half points and finishing with 12 overall for the Ironmen.Fairview’s shooting woes continued after the intermission as they were unable to generate any consistency on offense. Meanwhile CCC kept things simple, passing the ball inside to Taryl Davis and letting the big man go to work. Davis scored nine close-range baskets in the second half and 11 for the game as he led all scorers with 22 points.The Ironmen built their lead to 30 at 59-29 on a layup by Tevin Jackson with 5:00 to play, and coasted to close out the victory.Cleveland Central Catholic returns to North Ridgeville on Saturday afternoon to play the winner of Bay vs. Holy Name for the district title.FairviewLowry 5-0-10Mesaros 4-2-10Howes 1-4-6Younkin 2-0-6Rehor 2-0-4McQuate 1-0-3Turner 1-0-2Rebounds: 30 Turnovers: 19Field goal shooting: 16/47, 34% 3-point shots: 3/20, 15% Free throws: 6/8, 75%Cleveland Central CatholicDavis 11-0-22Nettles 6-0-12Williams 3-0-8Ford 2-2-6Jackson 2-2-6Wells 2-1-5Bowen 2-0-4Fayne 2-0-4Mack 1-0-2Rebounds: 36 Turnovers: 8Field goal shooting: 31/62, 50% 3-point shots: 2/13, 15% Free throws: 5/8, 63% NEO HS Stafflast_img read more

OverActive Media launches Montreal academy team

first_imgOverActive Media has partnered with Mirage Sport Électronique to launch an esports team in Montreal.The team will compete in Overwatch Contenders as the official academy team of Overwatch League franchise Toronto Defiant. Photo credit: OverActive MediaOverActive Media is the parent company of Splyce and owns Toronto Defiant, one of eight expansion teams to join Activision Blizzard’s league during the off season.Chris Overholt, President and CEO of OverActive Media discussed the team in a statement: “We are really excited about partnering with Yannick and his team to launch the first pro esports franchise in Quebec. Today is about continuing our commitment to growing esports nationwide, and expanding our Toronto Defiant fanbase in Quebec and across Eastern Canada.”The team – which includes seven players, two coaches, and a general manager – will live in a gaming house located in Quebec. They’ll both live and train in the facility.Yannick Babin, President of Mirage Sport Électronique added: “This is a huge step toward the democratization of esports in Quebec. We want to prove that Quebec is able to compete with the giants of esports, and this the first step in doing just that.”Last month, OverActive Media received over $22 million (£17.1 million) in a funding round. The round included current shareholders and new investors whose identities weren’t revealed.Esports Insider says: It’s a tad strange to see an Academy team be launched for an entirely different city than its main team, but this is an interesting move nonetheless. It’s good to see more cities being introduced to the industry, though. Best of luck to OverActive Media and Montreal!last_img read more

Pharmacist denies woman miscarriage drug on moral grounds

first_img 1 of 3 The Walgreens where Nicole Arteaga was allegedly refused service by a Walgreens pharmacist who denied her prescription because it was against his ethics, shown Monday, June 25, 2018, in Peoria, Ariz. The Arizona State Board of Pharmacy will investigate the complaint of a woman who says a Walgreens pharmacist denied to give her medication necessary to end her pregnancy after her baby stopped developing. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) PEORIA, Ariz. | The Arizona State Board of Pharmacy will investigate the complaint of a woman who says a Walgreens pharmacist refused to give her medication necessary to end her pregnancy after her baby stopped developing.The woman, who the Arizona Republic identified as Nicole Arteaga, described in a viral Facebook post how she was publicly humiliated when attempting to fill the prescription to end her pregnancy — a pregnancy she wanted, but needed to terminate because she would ultimately miscarry. She says the pharmacist refused to fill the prescription with other customers within earshot and she left the location in tears with her 7-year-old child by her side. Nicole Arteaga tells her story about how a Walgreens pharmacist allegedly denied her prescription because it was against his ethics, during an interview from inside her home in Peoria, Ariz., Saturday, June 23, 2018.

The Arizona State Board of Pharmacy will investigate the complaint of a woman who says a Walgreens pharmacist denied to give her medication necessary to end her pregnancy after her baby stopped developing. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) Arteaga was able to fill her prescription at a different location later, and filed a complaint with the Arizona State Board of Pharmacy.Kam Gandhi, executive director at the board, said that the agency hasn’t talked to Arteaga or the pharmacist yet, but will aim to do a full investigation before the board’s next meeting in August, Gandhi said.“Obviously it’s a sensitive matter, and we have to approach it delicately,” he said. “If we get everything in order, we’ll present it at the August meeting.”Arizona is one of six states that permit pharmacists to refuse to fill prescriptions on moral or religious grounds without requiring a referral or transfer of the prescription, according to the National Women’s Law Center. The law specifically mentions abortion medication or emergency contraception, and says medical professionals like pharmacists must state their objection in writing.Gandhi said that part of the law hasn’t been interpreted by the board before.“Does it have to be presented to the patient, does it have to be at the store, or does it have to be in the pharmacist’s personnel file?” he said. “That’s what’s up in the air.”Once the investigation is presented to the board, it can determine whether to dismiss the complaint or take further action. That could include a type of warning letter, civil penalties, a voluntary surrender of license or continued education, Gandhi said.Arteaga also said she had contacted Walgreens’ corporate office. On Monday, the company was tweeting replies to individuals who were outraged by Arteaga’s post.Some customers said they were taking their prescription business elsewhere. Walgreens pushed out multiple repeated responses. In one, the company said it apologized to the patient about how the situation was handled. It also said it was looking into the matter further, while another message explained store policies.“Our policy allows pharmacists to step away from filling a prescription for which they have a moral objection,” the tweet read. “At the same time, they are also required to refer the prescription to another pharmacist or manager on duty to meet the patient’s needs in a timely manner.”The company told The Associated Press on Monday that the pharmacist in question was the only one on duty at the time, so he called another location to serve the patient.Gretchen Borchelt, the vice president of reproductive rights and health for the National Women’s Law Center, said it’s unclear how many women are affected by such laws because few may come forward like Arteaga did. Borchelt said her group has heard of women being denied prescriptions in at least 26 states since 2000.“I think it’s happening more than people realize,” she said.Tayler Tucker, a spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona, said the organization has been advocating for change in the refusal policy since it was passed in 2009. She said the law steps into the relationship between a woman and her provider — a woman could become ill by not properly dealing with a miscarriage, she said.“We’re literally endangering people by stepping in in these ways and that definitely is a huge concern,” she said.Arteaga found out she was pregnant about two months ago and was being monitored weekly because of a prior miscarriage. Last week, Arteaga’s doctor told her that her baby had stopped developing and she would ultimately miscarry. Her doctor gave her the prescription after she opted to use medication to terminate the pregnancy instead of a procedure.“I get it we all have our beliefs,” she wrote. “But what he failed to understand is this isn’t the situation I had hoped for, this isn’t something I wanted. This is something I have zero control over. He has no idea what it’s like to want nothing more than to carry a child to full term and be unable to do so.”Information from: The Arizona Republic, https://www.azcentral.comlast_img read more
