Sakamoto entered basketball due in large part to “Slam Dunk.” Hachimura’s teammates, too, were obsessed with the program years after its finale.“The first wave of basketball in Japan was pushed forward by ‘Slam Dunk,’” said Dexter Thomas, a PhD candidate at Cornell University writing a dissertation on race in Japanese hip-hop and a correspondent on ‘Vice News Tonight.’ “Rui Hachimura, if he succeeds, it’s going to be another level.” Though basketball is not heavily followed in Japan, exceptional Japanese athletes are, regardless of the sport. So if Hachimura, the West Coast Conference player of the year and a potential lottery pick, is successful, it could help grow the game that figures to get a boost leading into the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.“He’s been huge for Japan,” said Gonzaga teammate Brandon Clarke, another projected first-round pick. “He’s just done so much for the country. The fact that he’s going to be drafted in the first round and probably a lottery pick (Thursday), it’ll be really big for the country.”Hachimura was born to a Beninese father and Japanese mother. The 21-year-old said he faced racism as a child, but added that the perception that Japanese people are racist is generally overblown. Though there are prominent hafus — the term in Japan used for a biracial person — across Japanese society, none has quite the background of Hachimura.“(Hachimura) doesn’t have somebody that he can point to and be like, ‘I look like him and I could be him.’” Thomas said. “He doesn’t have that, but he could be that for somebody younger. I have a lot of friends who could’ve used someone like Hachimura growing up.”That’s what Hachimura wants, to be a role model for, in his own words, “blackanese,” like him.ADVERTISEMENT Grizzlies trade Mike Conley to Jazz for 3 players Rio’s unsafe Olympic Park ordered closed by Brazilian judge Rui Hachimura, a Gonzaga junior college basketball player from Japan, attends the NBA Draft media availability, Wednesday, June 19, 2019, in New York.

first_imgStudents who are being trained in the patient Care Assistant Training ProgrammeFifty females and one male are undergoing training under the Patient Care Assistant Training Programme.This is the 11th batch of trainees under the programme. The participants were selected from Regions Three, Four and Five to undergo the six-month training.At the formal launch of the programme which is in its seventh week, Chairperson of the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) Board, Kesaundra Alves read Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence’s charge to participants. Alves said that as Patient Care Assistants, the participants upon graduation would provide direct and/or indirect care, including medical assessment, treatment, counselling and psychological assistance.According to the Minister’s charge, this training is of significant importance to the Division of Health Sciences in the Public Health Ministry and the health facilities to which the students would be assigned. She said, “the need for trained Patient Care Assistants has, therefore, become imperative and it is to this end that this training programme has been implemented to fill the existing gaps as quickly as possible.”According to a Government Information Agency (GINA) release, Alves said the students who would be sent to the Hugo Chávez Centre for Rehabilitation and Reintegration would have to interact with indigent persons who had no fixed place of abode, the less fortunate and homeless who may be in need of medical assessment and treatment, counselling and psychological assistance to enable them to become disciplined and productive members of society.She further explained to the students that at the Palms Geriatric Home, they would be providing care for the elderly who need more careful attention as they advance in age. Some patients may demand even more care depending on their health status, to assist with daily living activities, observing and charting changes in their health or behaviour, and helping with hygiene and cleanliness.Alves urged that kindness always be extended. “There may be instances when you may be called to perform extra duties; do not make it an issue, but respond with compassion; your intervention may just be the response that eases the patients’ state of mind,” she said.Alves said the Public Health Minister would like to remind the students that their patients come first, that they were critical to providing high-quality care with desirable outcomes, and there must be a comprehensive approach to effective patient care.Further, Alves noted that Minister Lawrence would like to encourage the students to always continue to learn and keep abreast with the new techniques and technologies that would improve the quality of patient care.GPHC Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Allan Johnson, in his encouraging words to the students, urged them to revise constantly and excel in their training. Johnson said for a majority of the students in the course, “this is a second chance”, and he hoped that they would make use of it. The CEO told the students that “they will be successful in their training” which will help improve the health sector.Programme Coordinator Doneth Mingo said the programme was designed to prepare Patient Care Assistants to perform basic nursing skills under the supervision of a professional nurse. She said there was space in the world of nursing for nurses who were less qualified and needed less training.GINA spoke with some of the students who are being trained. Sherry Ann Toney-Cort said, “I have been working at the Palms for 10 years, and I have now been given the opportunity to be trained in what I love doing. I am very thankful to God for this opportunity. Thus far, the programme has been wonderful and very informative.”Marcus Fraser stated, “Thus far I have enjoyed the programme; I have some important lessons such as testing vitals and most of all, being confidential when it comes to the patient, which is very important.”Osvena Chung said, “I have been working at the Palms for six years and I am hoping that this programme will help me improve my work ethics and show us what we are missing when caring for patients.”Colene Deonarine stated, “I have been working at the Palms for six years and I hope that this training will teach me how to deal with mentally-ill patients because we have a lot to deal with. Caring for these persons is something that I like very much and I want to improve myself when caring of them.”last_img read more

first_img1 Pep Guardiola has no problem with Sergio Aguero spending a day off in Amsterdam after the Manchester City striker was injured in a car crash there on Thursday.Aguero broke a rib after being involved in a road accident while visiting the Dutch city for a music concert.The accident occurred at around 11pm as Aguero travelled back to an airport in a taxi after attending the gig, performed by Colombian singer/songwriter Maluma.Guardiola said: “I think days off are to be happy. I want the players to be happy. Always I am a manager who doesn’t like to train every day.“I think the players have to rest mentally and physically. They can enjoy their lives. I want my players to have fun. If they decide to go there, they decide to go there. It is okay for me.”Aguero is understood to have been hurt when the taxi came off the road and hit a post. He was treated in hospital and was due to arrive back in Manchester for further assessment by club medical staff on Friday afternoon.Guardiola said he did not know how long he would be without his most prolific forward but he would definitely miss the leaders’ Premier League trip to champions Chelsea on Saturday. He said Aguero would also be unavailable for Argentina’s crucial World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Ecuador next month.Guardiola, speaking at a press conference, said: “He cannot play tomorrow and the international break – maybe he was selected for Argentina but he cannot go there.“We will see. I don’t know the answers. The first impression we have is that he has a broken rib but exactly how many days he will be off, I don’t know right now.”Aguero, 29, had started the season impressively, scoring seven goals in eight appearances to move within one of equalling Eric Brook’s club record 177.Aguero was reported by Spanish sports newspaper AS to have told Argentinian station Radio Metro: “The taxi driver did not see the curve and skidded. And when he skidded, we hit the pole. I broke my rib, now I’m resting. It hurts me badly. I’ll be discharged in a little while.”Aguero’s father has suggested the accident could have been worse.Leonel Del Castillo reportedly told Argentinian channel TyC Sports: “The taxi was driving very fast. ‘Kun’ asked him to slow down, put on his seat belt and crashed instantly. He was lucky. They put him on painkillers, he was released and taken to Manchester.”News of Aguero’s accident came after further injury blows to left-back Benjamin Mendy and captain Vincent Kompany.Mendy has ruptured an anterior cruciate ligament and is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines.Guardiola said: “Mendy will be operated on this afternoon in Barcelona. He will be out until our semi-finals of the Champions League.”Kompany has missed the last six games with a calf injury and remains out of action despite being called up for international duty by Belgium.Guardiola said: “He only made one training session with us since one month ago. I spoke with (Belgium coach) Roberto Martinez. He is travelling there to make a meeting with the Belgium doctor but he is coming back. Of course he cannot play for Belgium.” Sergio Aguero could face a lengthy spell on the sidelines after crash in Amsterdam last_img read more
