Latest: Chelsea 4 Newcastle 0 – Blues heading for victory

first_imgPedro grabbed his second of the game as Chelsea continued to cruise towards their first home league win since Guus Hiddink’s return as manager.The Spaniard had played his part in Chelsea’s dominant first-half display, scoring the second goal as the Blues went in at the break 3-0 up.He then added a fourth on 58 minutes, as he beat a hapless Steven Taylor to Cesc Fabregas’ flighted long ball before beating Newcastle keeper Rob Elliot.Newcastle had begun the second half brightly, and Cesar Azpilicueta had to be alert to throw himself in front of a Jonjjo Shelvey shot, while Aleksandar Mitrovic fired narrowly wide.But the Magpies’ poor defending, exploited by Pedro, cost them – just as it had when they leaked three goals in 16 first-half minutes.Diego Costa, playing in a facemask to protect a broken nose, opened the scoring early on when he timed his run perfectly to guide Willian’s  ball into the far corner.Then Newcastle left-back Rolando Aarons played a casual pass on halfway, allowing Pedro the chance to run to the edge of the box before firing home.The home side’s dominance was underscored by their third goal, as Costa picked up Fabregas’ lofted pass before threading the ball into the path of Willian, who was left with a simple finish.The only concern for Chelsea was when captain John Terry limped off after 36 minutes, following a tangle with Mitrovic.Chelsea: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry (Baba 36), Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Hazard, Pedro; Costa (Traore 60).Subs: Begovic, Baba, Mikel, Loftus-Cheek, Kenedy, Remy.Newcastle United: Elliot; Janmaat, Taylor, Coloccini, Aarons; Tiote, Shelvey; Sissoko, Wijnaldum, Townsend; Mitrovic.Subs: Darlow, Lascelles, Saivet, Colback, Perez, Doumbia, Riviere.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

49ers John Lynch dishes on what Giants wanted for Odell Beckham

first_imgSANTA CLARA — The 49ers’ hopes this season and beyond are rooted strongly in two players they’ve acquired via trade: Jimmy Garoppolo, their rehabilitating quarterback who arrived on Halloween 2017, and Dee Ford, their long-sought pass rusher by way of Kansas City.But one thing this 49ers regime can’t avoid is scuttlebutt over trades that weren’t consummated.Last season, a dark cloud lingered after a failed deal for then-Raiders pass rusher Khalil Mack, not to mention sincere interest in …last_img read more

World Cancer Day Message from the Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, Minister of Health

first_imgCancer is a leading cause of death worldwide and accounted for 7.6 million deaths, which is around 13% of all deaths in 2008. Seventy percent of all cancer related deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries such as Jamaica. In Jamaica, cancer is one of the top five causes of death in our population. According to data from the Registrar General’s Department, in 2010, 3198, Jamaicans died due to cancer. The three most common types of cancer that kill Jamaican men are prostate, lung and colorectal and for women they are breast, cervix and colorectal cancer. In 2009, there were 4,315 discharges from Government hospitals, including UHWI, for Cancer. On World Cancer Day this year, the Ministry of Health is joining with the World Health Organization and supporting the International Union Against Cancer to urge persons to get the facts about cancers. This year will focus on Target 5 of the World Cancer Declaration: Dispel damaging myths and misconceptions about cancer, under the tagline “Cancer – Did you know?”. The myths that we must work towards dispelling are Myth 1: “Cancer is just a health issue”; Myth 2: “Cancer is a disease of the wealthy, elderly and developed countries”; Myth 3: “Cancer is a death sentence”; and Myth 4: “Cancer is my fate”. The truth is that cancer has wide reaching social, economic and development implications. Approximately 47% of cancers and 55% of related deaths occur in less developed regions of the world. Its impact on persons also threatens the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals and the disease has been branded both a cause and outcome of poverty. There is no specific age group that is affected; the disease affects persons from all age and socio-economic groups. The good news is that the development and improvement in medical technology and treatment methods have resulted in successful treatment of many cancers and so the disease is no longer considered a death sentence. More than 30% of cancers could be prevented and cured if detected early and treated adequately. Tobacco use is the most preventable cause of cancer in the world. In Jamaica, Cancer Prevention and Control has been afforded priority attention in view of the rapidly increasing trend globally and locally in the prevalence of cancers. A National Technical Working Group/Task Force on Cancer Prevention and Control has been put in place to develop that component of the National Strategic Plan for the Prevention and Control of Non-communicable Diseases in Jamaica 2012 – 2017. As a priority of this Government, work has already begun towards improving cancer care. In November last year, we officially opened the Ambulatory Chemotherapy Unit at the Kingston Public Hospital which is the first of its kind at the KPH and will provide enhanced care for cancer patients, while improving treatment and diagnostic services for increased survival and recovery. Sixty one patients were treated in the unit at KPH in November and that number increased to 101 in December. If we are going to tackle this problem we must work together; all of government not just the Ministry of Health, civil society, persons living with and affected by cancer, private sector and academia are required to ensure the effective prevention and control of NCDs. Some of the ways we can prevent cancer is by not smoking, sticking to a healthy diet, becoming more physically active, visiting our doctor to assess our cancer risk and getting screened. I urge all Jamaicans to join me in this fight, get the facts about cancer and begin the quest to a healthier lifestyle as your commitment this World Cancer Day. Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson Minister of Healthlast_img read more
