I thought about the women who are still doubting their own abilities to get through this time in their life, women who might not yet have hope, and I wanted to carry that hope for them. Even if it is just for 21 kilometres.”ADAPT provides supports to women survivors of domestic abuse and their children across Limerick City and County.

Carrie Fisher, Best Known as ‘Princess Leia,’ Dies After Suffering Heart Attack

first_imgAs news of her passing made its way across social media, fans poured in condolences. Among the tributes was the ubiquitous slogan from Star Wars: “May the force be with you.” Other than stepping back into the iconic sci-fi universe that made her famous, Fisher had appeared in the comedy Catastrophe and was the voice of Angela in Family Guy.” Embed from Getty Images Although Fisher appeared in dozens of films and TV shows, her role as Princess Leia, beginning with Star Wars: Episode IV, earned her iconic status. Fisher reprised the role to complete the trilogy and was reunited with the cast of the space epics last year in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, much to the delight of fans across the galaxy. Famed Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher died on Tuesday, according to reports. She was 60 years old. Best known for her dynamic performance as Princess Leia in the intergalactic Star Wars films, Fisher suffered cardiac arrest aboard a flight on Friday. Fisher’s death was announced by a family spokesperson in a statement to People magazine.“She was loved by the world and she will be missed profoundly,” the statement read. “Our entire family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers.” Fisher died at 8:55 a.m., according to the statement. Fisher had been flying from London to Los Angeles when she suffered a heart attack. At what point of the flight she fell ill still remained unclear. Fisher was hospitalized immediately after the flight had landed and had been placed in an intensive care unit. She remained in ICU on Sunday, when her mother, Debbie Reynolds, wrote on her Facebook account that her daughter was listed in “stable condition.” “To all her friends and fans, I thank you all for your prayers and good wishes.” Fisher’s co-star, Mark Hamill, who played the role of Luke Skywalker, had a short message for his followers upon hearing about his friend’s death: center_img Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Embed from Getty Imageslast_img read more

(AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)ExpandIf I were an Angel fan, I’d be jealous too.That emotion might have kicked in at the very moment Sunday that 22-year-old Keibert Ruiz, playing his first major league game as the latest among the Dodgers’ cavalcade of catchers, smacked one down the right field line and off the tarp covering the lower box seats for his first major league home run, in his first big league at-bat in the third inning.Or maybe it was when fellow 22-year-old Dustin May, yet another Dodgers’ pitching prodigy and one who didn’t even have his nastiest stuff Sunday, got Mike Trout looking on a 98.9 mph two-seamer to end the bottom of the third. (Then again, it might have been Saturday night, when young reliever Brusdar Graterol threw Trout five 99 mph sinkers in six pitches and got him to ground out to end the seventh. In the fifth Sunday, the fearless Graterol came back for an encore and retired Trout and Anthony Rendon on 98 mph two-seamers.)The trend here: The 15-7 Dodgers’ embarrassment of riches continues, the combination of an abundant and efficient player development system and acquisitions both huge (Mookie Betts) and under the radar (Max Muncy, Chris Taylor, Graterol, etc.). The Angels are 7-14, only two teams in the game have worse records, their staff ERA is now 4.77 (to the Dodgers’ MLB-best 2.49), and Trout and Rendon may as well be on an island right now. By late afternoon Sunday, the Angels’ body language seemed to say, “Man, can we please get these guys out of town?”“Right now they’re better than us,” Angels manager Joe Maddon said late Sunday afternoon. ” … They’ve been together for a bit, and they’ve been through some pretty good moments together. And that’s what’s down the road for us. Until we get there, we’ve got to keep pounding away, pounding at the door, which we intend to do. “Right now, bully for them.”You could make the case that the Dodgers haven’t been totally tested yet. They will see Colorado (13-8, second in the NL West) for the first time this weekend in The Ravine. They will only see the A’s (currently with baseball’s best record at 16-6) three times, and those will be in L.A. and won’t occur until Sept. 22-24. And, of course, the Yankees still lurk out there somewhere, biding their time until October just as the Dodgers are.But consider this small portion of the overall operation: The Dodgers called up Will Smith from Triple-A last year, and he quickly established himself as an everyday catcher. When Smith had a stiff neck this weekend, they brought up Ruiz from their USC training site.Ruiz had been the organization’s No. 1 catching prospect before Smith overtook him. Fellow Venezuelan Diego Cartaya, who doesn’t turn 19 until Sept. 7 and is currently at the USC site, is projected by some analysts as possibly surpassing both eventually.It is the fruit of a player development system that keeps pumping out talent, be it a front-of-the rotation star such as Buehler, pitching prodigies like May and Tony Gonsolin, catching prospects galore, and guys like Beaty and Edwin Rios who may not be at the top of the prospects lists but know how to play.The little things make a difference. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts noted that both Smith and Ruiz were brought into the major league mix in a previous September, not necessarily to play but to observe how major league preparation works. (It helped Sunday that Ruiz had previously caught May at four different levels of the minor leagues.)“We don’t worry about the inexperience or the age,” Roberts said. “If we feel that they can perform at this level, they’ve earned it. We have no problem running them out there. And when you just surround them with people that support them, you have a really good chance of success.”The entire package, starting with superstar Betts and extending through the batting order, is a lineup that at its best is relentless, complemented by a starting pitching staff that is equally relentless and by a bullpen that, after years of fan angst about blown leads in key spots, could be the best of the Guggenheim ownership era if the current trend holds.(If it doesn’t, Dodger fans, forget I said anything.)After Ruiz returned to the dugout and the celebration of his teammates after that first home run Sunday, the TV field microphones caught one of the veterans yelling, “Baseball is easy!”It really isn’t. It just seems that way [email protected]@Jim_Alexander on Twitter Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone center_img Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Yes, This Space engaged in some wishful thinking on the eve of this 60-game sprint, the idea that with a short season and an expanded playoff field, the Angels could transcend their underdog status in their division and maybe position themselves for a postseason run. But I also expressed these words of caution: “They’ll play 10 percent of their schedule against the Dodgers, and that may be a taller order than anything they’ll see in the AL West.”Halfway through the six-game Freeway Series, that’s pretty much the way it looks, and that’s no disrespect to the Oakland A’s, the AL West’s (and the game’s) current juggernaut. (And, not incidentally, a team the Angels won two of three from earlier in the week.)The Dodgers sent Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler and May at the Angels this weekend, and the results were coldly efficient (7-4 Friday), resourcefully efficient (6-5 in 10 innings Saturday) and brutally efficient (8-3 Sunday, with Max Muncy, Corey Seager and Matt Beaty slugging home runs as well as Ruiz).Related Articles Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros last_img read more

MANDELLA’S BAL A BALI & MCANALLY’S QUICK CASABLANCA HEAD FIELD OF 10 IN SUNDAY’S GRADE II, $200,000 CHARLES WHITTINGHAM STAKES AT 1 ¼ MILES ON TURF

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (May 26, 2016)–Grass specialists Bal a Bali and Quick Casablanca head a field of 10 three year olds and up in Sunday’s Grade II, $200,000 Charles Whittingham Stakes, to be run at 1 ¼ miles on turf.Named for the legendary late Hall of Fame conditioner who was affectionately known as The Bald Eagle, Whittingham remains Santa Anita’s all-time leading stakes winning trainer with 204 added money triumphs to his credit. Originally run as the Hollywood Invitational Turf Handicap in 1969, the race, which was won a record seven times by Whittingham, was renamed in his honor following his death in April, 1999. ROYAL ALBERT HALL: A clever 1 ¼ length allowance winner over the course at a mile and a quarter two starts back on March 25, English-bred Royal Albert Hall returns to Santa Anita following a solid third place run in the Grade II, 1 ½ miles turf Elkhorn Stakes at Keeneland April 23. Ridden by Flavien Prat, he was beaten a length and will be reunited with Rafael Bejarano, who was aboard for the allowance win on March 25. Trained by Doug O’Neill, “Albert” has been no worse than third in three starts this year and he is 7-1-3-1 over the local course. Although he has run from well off the pace in the past, he appears best suited when he can sit mid-pack early. Owned by Head of Plains, Keh, Knight and partners, Royal Albert Hall, who has two wins from 18 overall starts, seeks his first U.S. stakes win in the Whittingham. He has earnings of $219,983. THE GRADE II CHARLES WHITTINGHAM STAKES IN POST POSITION ORDER WITH JOCKEYS & WEIGHTSRace 8 (of 9)                                Approximate post time is 5:30 p.m. PDT Blingo–Alex Solis–121Patentar–Alonso Quinonez–121A Red Tie Day–Mario Gutierrez–121Montego Day–Drayden Van Dyke–121Bal a Bali–Flavien Prat–121Royal Albert Hall–Rafael Bejarano–121Si Sage–Mike Smith–121Play Hard to Get–Kent Desormeaux–121Finnegans Wake–Victor Espinoza–121Quick Casablanca–Tyler Baze–121First post time on Sunday is at 2 p.m. Admission gates open at 11:30 a.m. For scratches, late changes and complete morning line information, please visit santaanita.com.center_img QUICK CASABLANCA: Trained by Ron McAnally, who ranks second to the legendary Whittingham with four lifetime wins in the race dating back to superstar gelding John Henry’s consecutive wins in 1980 and ’81, holds a good hand with veteran Quick Casa Blanca, who comes off a facile 2 ¾ length win in the mile and three quarter turf San Juan Capistrano Stakes on April 10. Chilean-bred, Quick Casablanca is an 8-year-old full horse that has responded well to McAnally’s patient handling since arriving from New York early in 2014. Second two starts back in the Grade II, 1 ½ miles San Luis Rey Stakes on March 13, he was a close third three back in the Grade II, 1 ¼ miles turf San Marcos Stakes. Winless in eight tries at a mile and a quarter on turf, Quick Casablanca faces tougher competition in the Whittingham and his connections would welcome a fast pace which would complement his late running style. Owned by Pablo Gomez, Quick Casablanca is 28-5-8-6 overall with earnings of $749,160. He’ll be ridden for the sixth consecutive time by Tyler Baze. BAL A BALI: A Group I winner in his native Brazil in his only try going 1 ¼ miles on turf, this 6-year-old horse comes off a narrow defeat when third, beaten a neck, in the Grade III San Francisco Mile (turf) at Golden Gate Fields on April 30. Trained by Richard Mandella, Bal a Bali was off as the 9-5 favorite but just missed in a game effort. Third, beaten 3 ¾ lengths two starts back in the Grade I Frank E. Kilroe Mile (turf) here on March 12, he has a win and two thirds over the Santa Anita turf and has been first, second or third in his last five starts at middle distances on turf, the last four in graded stakes. Ridden to victory by Flavien Prat in his U.S. debut, the Grade III, one mile turf American Stakes at Santa Anita on May 9, 2015, Pratt has been aboard in his last three starts–all third place finishes. Owned by Fox Hill Farms and Siena Farms, LLC, Bal a Bali is 20-13-1-4 overall, with earnings of $751,478.last_img read more
