O’Donnell Welcomes Major Enhancement Works for Castletroy Neighbourhood Park Cllr Séighin Ó CeallaighMORE than 18 months after a main road into the village of Castleconnell was damaged, work will begin this summer to ensure it doesn’t collapse.Sinn Féin councillor Séighin Ó Ceallaigh, who asked for a definitive starting date for the work at this Monday’s meeting of Limerick City and County Council, welcomed official confirmation from the local authority.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up He was told that the works associated with the building of this wall should start in July and take up to three weeks to complete.Despite the assurance, Cllr Ó Ceallaigh said he still couldn’t believe that the work will begin this July.“False start dates were given on numerous occasions to myself and other councillors for the area, so I hope that they are telling the truth this time,” the City East representative said.“The excuse now for it taking a year and a half to get an official answer, is that it is a special area of conservation, but why weren’t local representatives told this a year and a half ago?“We are very lucky people weren’t killed from the road collapsing due to the damaged caused, which completely knocked the wall at the side of the road. It is right next to the children’s playground, so it’s amazing that there hasn’t been injury.”He added that the people of Castleconnell deserved more respect than to be fed false start dates.“It’s good to see July in writing so I can tackle this issue once and for all, if this is another false date,” he concluded.Read more politics stories in the Limerick Post Politics section.

Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York The Revenant premiered on Dec. 25, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy, and follows an incapacitated mountain man’s journey for survival to avenge his son’s death at the hands of an egocentric comrade during the early 1800s.The film took some time to reach this point, however. Almost an hour, actually. Director Alejandro Iñárritu, whose artful Birdman won the Oscar for Best Picture last year, lured audiences into Montana and South Dakota’s open wilderness. The northern states’ landscapes of snow-capped mountains ringed by vast creaking forests and cascading rivers were as beautiful and serene as they were cold and cruel.DiCaprio, whose real-life-inspired character’s name (Hugh Glass) barely stuck, slushed and clawed through icy water and dirty snow. Nature was unforgiving in The Revenant. You could see how freezing he was, almost feel that bone-numbing chill (then again, Long Island is pretty effing cold right now, too).Oh, and he’s mauled by a mama grizzly bear. And ambushed by Native Americans. And slept naked inside a dead horse. Stylistic camerawork shot right-up-in-your face action sequences, detailing every bone-snapping crunch, arrow pierced through someone’s neck or eye, or volumes of saliva foaming across DiCaprio’s lips. The gritty fights were very up-close and personal.Sadly, for all the film’s breathtaking backdrops and thrilling action, those are The Revenant’s biggest strengths. What bound everything together was a compelling and dramatic but simple revenge story with a predictable and underwhelming outcome.DiCaprio and Tom Hardy both delivered believable performances, though Hardy once again mumbled his way through some scenes with yet another inaudible character (The Dark Knight Rises’ Bane, Mad Max, etc.). Overall, there wasn’t anything impressive or memorable about their characters’ personalities when compared to the actors’ previous roles, such as DiCaprio’s scumbag Jordan Belfort in The Wolf of Wall Street. Neither performance in The Revenant was bad; they just weren’t their best roles.Perhaps the standard set by DeCaprio and Hardy’s résumés destined their latest characters and The Revenant overall to fall short of amazing, but jaw-dropping scenery and savage action carry this revenge story well enough to make the film a praiseworthy start to 2016 cinema, and encourage moviegoers to venture out into January’s merciless chill. At the very least, viewers will be more appreciative of our current weather conditions come the end credits.
The Miami-Dade Police Department is currently investigating the death of a cheerleading coach who was found dead of multiple stab wounds in his apartment.Authorities say Joany Lobo, also known as Jojo, was found dead Friday around 3:00 pm after several friends and coworkers contacted his family when he did not show up for work and no one could reach him.When authorities arrived at the apartment on Southwest 125th Avenue, they reported that no one answered the door and that the door was locked.With the help of the fire department, police were able to enter the apartment where they later found the 39-year-old deceased and covered in stab wounds.While not much is known about the case at this time, investigators did report that there was no sign of forced entry and that the killer is believed to have locked the door on the way out of the apartment. If you have any information about this incident, you are asked to contact Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
UNDISPUTED TRUTH—Mike Tyson speaks during his show, “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth,” on opening night, April 14, at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. (AP Photo/SPI Entertainment, Kirvin Doak Communications, Erik Kabik) LAS VEGAS (AP)—The urge struck me about halfway through Mike Tyson’s latest adventure, just after he told the audience about how his mother loved the bottle more than she loved him. Or maybe it was when the big video screens showed a young Tyson serving as a pallbearer for Cus D’Amato, the man who molded his boxing career and the only man he really loved.The former baddest man on the planet once made opponents and anyone who came into his path shake with fear. On this night, though, it was all I could do not to run up on stage and give him a big hug. Surely a lot of those gathered in a hotel theater just down the hall from where Tyson had some of his biggest fights felt the same way. How could they not after watching him bare his soul for assorted VIP’s and anyone willing to pay $117.49 to hear his story?It was billed as “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth” and there’s still time to catch it if you have the cash and can get to the MGM Grand hotel before Wednesday’s final performance. Beware, though, because this is more about Tyson’s greatest misses than it is about his greatest hits.“Many of you wondered what the hell Mike Tyson was going to do on stage tonight,” Tyson said at the beginning of the show. “I was wondering the same thing.”Actually, I had a good idea because I’ve been listening to it for years. So did Tyson, because the show is mostly scripted—credit is given to wife Kiki—and he knows the subject material because he’s lived it.That he’s still alive at the age of 45 after all that living is remarkable enough, a fact Tyson himself acknowledged on stage. Any combination of the women, the fights, the drinking and the heavy cocaine use could have done him in at any time.“I’m coked up and fat,” he said at one point, gazing up at a Los Angeles police booking shot of himself on the video screen. “I’m a fat cokehead.”That he’s transformed himself into something far different than his fearsome former self is even more remarkable. He’s now America’s Guest, a comedian/actor/storyteller who finds it both therapeutic and financially lucrative to talk about a time gone by, when he mesmerized the world with his wild and crazy ways.Some of it can still make you shift uncomfortably in your seat, like when Tyson talks about being with Japanese prostitutes before his upset loss to Buster Douglas in Tokyo. Some of it makes you wonder, like his conflicted feelings toward ex-wife Robin Givens, 20 years after their divorce. Some of it makes you laugh, none more so than the 10 minutes Tyson devoted to his infamous street brawl with fellow fighter Mitch “Blood” Green in New York.“I hit him so hard I broke my hand,” Tyson said. “But I broke his face, too.”The idea of Tyson doing a one-man show that people would actually pay to see seems a bit ludicrous. Somehow, though, it works—in a lot of ways.His thin, high-pitched voice isn’t made for the stage, but the tales he tells are compelling and he delivers them with a showman’s flair. He’s backed by a singer and a five-piece band, and the message he brings is one of redemption and forgiveness.Redemption for himself. Forgiveness for others, like his alcoholic mother, and promoter Don King.“When I first met Don I didn’t realize I was meeting the (insert your own word here) devil,” Tyson said. “But Don and I made peace. Forgiveness is my new motto. I hope it works for me.”Forgiveness goes only so far, though. The people in Indiana who put him in prison for three years for rape apparently don’t merit it, even as Tyson acknowledges the lockup may have saved his life.“There’s a lot of things I could have gone to jail for and I deserved to go to jail for,” he said. “But this wasn’t one of them. I didn’t do it and I will never admit doing it.”Strangely enough, the show barely touches on the biggest moments in Tyson’s career. There’s no footage of him knocking out Trevor Berbick to become the youngest heavyweight champion ever at the age of 20, nothing on the video screen from his 91-second destruction of Michael Spinks.The only two fights he really talks about were among the lowest moments of his life. He’s seen getting knocked out by Douglas, and there are pictures of him biting Evander Holyfield’s ear.He explains the Douglas loss to the fact he was cavorting with Japanese prostitutes instead of training. The ear biting, he says, was mostly Holyfield’s fault for head butting and the fact referee Mills Lane “hated my guts.”Fair enough. It’s Tyson’s show, so he can say what he wants, even if he risks rewriting history in the process. But this show is more about feelings than punches, and if you couldn’t figure it out when he was talking about his beloved Cus, you got the idea at the end when the band played “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and Tyson added the voiceover of his troubled life.The audience that mostly filled the 740-seat Hollywood Theater on this night was a loving one, with one woman shouting out “You’re doing great, Mike” as he paused during one particularly bleak story. They gave him a standing ovation when he took the stage, and many did the same when he finally left it two hours later.A good night for all. About the only thing missing was a group hug at the end.

KOLKATA, India (CMC): Global trotting Twenty20 superstar Andre Russell says his ultimate goal is to create a rich legacy in cricket’s shortest format by setting the bar as high as he possibly can. The West Indies all-rounder was speaking in a post-match interview after a small but impressive cameo with the bat and brilliant death bowling that spurred Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) to an exciting seven-run victory over Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Wednesday. Russell lashed 16 from 10 balls at the death as KKR rallied to 164 for three and crippled Kings XI run chase with a fiery opening spell that reduced them to 13 for three in the fourth over. “This is what I really work hard for. I am an all-rounder. I know my job is not very easy. My job is very hard,” said the Jamaican cricketer. “So I don’t have a problem batting until the end then coming and bowl the first over of the innings and bowl the last over. I don’t mind doing it.” Russell, who started his innings in the 17th over, belted a four and a six in a 27-run third wicket partnership and returned to capture four wickets for 20 runs from his four overs. With Kings XI needing 12 runs from the final over, Man-of-the- Match Russell conceded just four runs and also effected a run-out and grabbed his fourth wicket. “I think as a youngster part of my legacy I plan to leave behind, I want to set the bar as high as possible. So I love these challenges,” said Russell, a member of the West Indies team that defeated England in the finals to regain the T20 World Cup recently. “I enjoy bowling in this moment where you know it is either I can win the game for my team, or if it goes the other way, I learn from it and take a positive from it knowing next time what can I do different. So I enjoy the load and I just want to go from strength to strength.” With the victory, KKR joined new boys Gujarat Lions on 12 points but topped the standings courtesy of a superior net run rate.

Two of soccer’s all-time best players, the 39-year-old Buffon had denied Messi a goal in their previous three meetings, including Juventus’ 3-0 aggregate win in last season’s quarterfinals.But once he found room to work, Messi picked Buffon’s Juventus apart – to take some revenge from last year’s elimination and continue his superb start to the current season.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutMessi grabbed his 95th and 96th goals in the Champions League, breaking the deadlock just before the end of the first half in the Group D game. After he had hit the post and played a part in Ivan Rakitic’s second goal, Messi rounded off the commanding win.“Tonight (Messi) did score (against Buffon) because we left him too much space,” Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said. “(Messi) plays perfectly well in tight spaces, but today he had more space, and I would even say that we made it easier for him, leaving him so open.” Barcelona’s forward from Argentina Lionel Messi (L) vies with Juventus’ defender from Brazil Alex Sandro during the UEFA Champions League Group D football match FC Barcelona vs Juventus at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona on September 12, 2017. / AFP PHOTO / LLUIS GENEBARCELONA, Spain — Lionel Messi finally added Italy great Gianluigi Buffon on his long, long list of vanquished goalkeepers.Messi struck two shots past Buffon to lead Barcelona to a 3-0 victory over Juventus in their opening match of the Champions League on Tuesday.ADVERTISEMENT Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF president Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients LOOK: Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte unwind in Amanpulo for 3rd anniversary Barcelona defender Gerard Pique cleared a header by Medhi Benatia off the line in Juventus’ best scoring opportunity in the 81st.Barcelona’s all-time top scorer, Messi has now scored eight goals in six games across all competitions this season.In the other Group D match on Tuesday, Sporting Lisbon won 3-2 at Olympiakos.Dembele, who debuted as a substitute in a 5-0 rout of Espanyol on Saturday, showed some of the speed that Barcelona wanted when it signed him, but otherwise had a subdued match.“Dembele was fine. It’s true that he has to adapt to the team, to learn some tactical questions,” Valverde said. “We have to help him come along. He has just arrived, he is young, and he has a long career in front of him.”To pry Dembele away from Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona reinvested a large part of the world record 222 million euros ($262 million) it received from Paris Saint-Germain for Brazil star Neymar. It paid Dortmund 105 million euros ($124 million) in a deal that includes possible add-ons that could bring the total to 147 million euros (about $173 million).Juventus was without injured defender Giorgio Chiellini, forward Mario Mandzukic and midfielder Sami Khedira. Juan Cuadrado was suspended. During the match, the Italian champions also lost De Sciglio to an injury in the first half, when he was replaced by Sturaro.

Football is a passion for the city couple Pannalal (81) and Chaitali (71), which has taken them to eight World Cups previously and the 2014 Brazil edition will be no exception either, though this could be their last.It all began in 1982 when the football-crazy couple, who live in a narrow bylane at Kidderpore in the south-western part of the city, when they spent one summer at their friend’s place in London and decided to go to Spain to watch the World Cup.”Such was the excitement that we have not been able to miss any World Cup since then,” the Chatterjees, who leave Kolkata on June 17, said.The next time around their fervour reached a different height after witnessing the Diego Maradona’s hand of God goal and bumping into Pele, two of their fondest memories till date.”It’s difficult to explain in words how much we love the sport,” the Chatterjees, who have been to Mexico, Italy, then America, the fifth was France, then Germany, then Japan-Korea, then South Africa and now Brazil, he added.A former Kolkata Port Trust employee, Pannalal gets a small pension of about Rs 7,500 and have a saree business as they save money every month to meet their expenses every four years.The couple say they always take the Tricolour with them and keep them flying high, but regret they feel embarrassed when curious spectators ask them when India will play football.”We have no answer to their queries… But we tell them we are proud Indians and have come here to watch the World Cup,” Pannalal said.advertisementArdent supporters of Brazil, it will be a dream come true for them to witness the extravaganza this time.”Brazil is the the Mecca of football. This was our only wish to watch World Cup in Brazil. We don’t know whether we will be able to go the next time,” he added.
When the soft, gelatinous central portion of an intervertebral disk is forced through a weakened part of a disk, it is a condition known as a slipped disk. Most herniation takes place in the lumbar area of the spine, and it is one of the most common causes of lower back pain. The mainstay of treatment for herniated disks is an initial period of rest with pain and anti-inflammatory medications followed by physical therapy. If pain and symptoms persist, surgery to remove the herniated portion of the intervertebral disk is recommended.Review Date:4/16/2013Reviewed By:C.
