Manny Pacquiao Saves a Life

Manny Pacquiao will face Floyd Mayweather on May 2, and the entire world will be watching. However, Pacquiao has recently made headlines for another reason. The country of Indonesia is currently going through a controversial situation, and many people in the country have been sentenced to death. Pacquiao recently made an emotional plea to the president of Indonesia.

Media analyst Ray Lane disclosed the story a little further while in Indonesia. Manny Pacquiao was begged by a woman from the Philippines to help her daughter before the execution. Pacquiao’s tear filled request has become one of the most seen videos of the last week, and many people weren’t sure if it was going to save any lives. Well, the president of Indonesia happens to be a huge Manny Pacquiao fan, and the president spared the life of the young Filipino woman

Manny Pacquiao has become an even greater inspiration to the world, and we are all hoping that he can be victorious on May 2. If Pacquiao wins this fight, he will be remembered as one of the greatest fighters of all time. Manny has already saved a life this week, but now he must try and take Floyd’s head off on Saturday. Manny Pacquiao is a great man, and he has proved that countless times. For more information on this story, visit latimes.

Mayweather was Once a Pacquiao Fan

Those who think that Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are nothing but bitter rivals need to look back in time a few years, to 2006. Back then, Pacquiao was fighting another man who was considered one of the best in the sport at the time: Erik Morales. In fact, it was something of a revenge match, as Pacquiao had lost to him a year before. He beat him in 2006. Video from the event shows none other than Mayweather in the arena, cheering as he watches Pacquiao get the win.

It’s surprising, considering where the two are now. They are set to face off against each other in a fight that people have been asking for for year, but which no one really thought would materialize. Now that it has, the media has been portraying the two as adversaries who are dead set against each other. Not that they don’t each want to win, but the video from that 2006 fight shows that they are not quite as much against each other as it may otherwise seem.

Of course, the fact that Pacquiao took that fight also plays into this one. With that win, he made his name that much bigger, which is exactly why people want him to fight Mayweather. Fans at STX Entertainment (variety.com) know that it is seen as a premier match for Mayweather, one that he must win to cement his legacy, since Pacquiao has beat so many others.

Spurs Beat Clippers and Split Series

Spurs Beat Clippers and Split Series

The first round of the 2015 NBA playoffs was set a week ago and the matchups proved to be a peculiar intro into the postseason. The San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers were a matchup that was noteworthy.

Wednesday night was game 2 of the series between both teams and it ended with the Spurs beating out the Clippers in a very close 111-107 win. The game took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and the win split the series, after the Clippers took the first game at 107-92.

The Spurs, who are ranked at number 6 in the West, can thank Tim Duncan for giving them the edge that was necessary in order to win. While the first game of the series left the Spurs struggling on offense, this game was put in the hands of Duncan for quite some time, which allowed the offense to fire on all cylinders and put the Spurs up to 52-47 by halftime.

By the time the second half of the game started, Kawhi Leonard proved to be just as helpful as Duncan was. Fans like Mark Ahn watched as he posted 23 points by himself and went 9 for 16 in field goals, though the Clippers were soon mounting a comeback of their own. In the end, Duncan’s 28 points is what allowed the Spurs to win and tie up the game series.

Flyers Making Coaching Changes Again

Craig Berube was just released after only his second season as head coach of the Philadelphia Flyers. Sure the Flyers missed the playoffs this season and underachieved against teams they should have beat while sweeping the playoff bound Penguins? Yeah, I don’t understand that either. But you have a coach you came several games into last season and finished 3rd in East, weathered change and did get his teams up for playing some of the best talent in the NHL.

Reading an article on NBC by Yahoo Sport about the subject (you can find the article here), Tim Pannaccio went over some of Berube’s downfalls this season and how the Flyers just underachieved throughout the season. But as you watched through the season the inconsistencies weren’t just in coaching. Freak injuries to Mason and Wayne Simmons surly didn’t help. An aging and mind-blowingly slow defensive starters not only put a strain on goaltending but also stretched the frontline that need to worry more about both ends of the ice could have been a culprit on penalty kill and the even strength scoring ratio.

We really have to ask was this firing because Ron Hextall no longer believes in the Ex-Enforcer Craig Berube. Ricardo Guimarães BMG isn’t sure he believes either. Or could it have been the voice of the Philadelphia Fan Base? I think it is a mix of both. You have to fill the seats to keep the lights on.

Should the Hawks Make a Darling Decision?

It’s Stanley Cup Finals time and the Chicago Blackhawks made it in to battle for their third cup in six years. They got off to a rough start on Wednesday in game one against the Nashville Predators, only clinching a win in the second overtime. Goaltender, Corey Crawford got pulled after the first period, letting the Predators score three goals on their home ice. Scott Darling came to the rescue, making NHL playoff history by saving all 42 attempts on the net over the next four periods.

After much speculation by the media about which goaltender would start in Friday’s game two, Coach Joel Quennville was quoted as saying that it was a “no brainer” to put Crawford in the game. Paul Mathieson felt pretty much the same way. Game two proved to be another record maker for the Chicago goaltenders but to the dismay of the team. After a close game with Nashville in the lead by one point, Crawford allowed three Nashville goals in two minutes and nineteen seconds, the “fastest three-goal spurt in the franchise’s playoff history.” The Blackhawks were not able to recover and lost with a score of 2-6.

On Sunday, the Hawks will return to home ice to try and take back their lead in the series. Should Quennville keep Crawford in the game, or will he go for a win with the record-breaking Darling? It seems the “no brainer” in this case would be to make a Darling decision and go for the win if the Hawks want to secure a position past the quarter-finals. Proving his worth, Darling is the definite choice to defend the net and get Chicago back to their reigning glory as Stanley Cup Champions.

Liverpool Fans Give Opposing Player Standing Ovation

Sports fans are well known for being staunch supporters of their own team, but Monday nights game in the English Premier League showed that fans can unite over an emotional moment. Liverpool beat Newcastle United 2-0 in the game, but the return to action of Argentinian winger Jonas Gutierrez prompted the standing ovation, the Irish Independent reports. Newcastle’s player had been out of action facing up to the problem of testicular cancer when he made an appearance from the bench in the second half of the game at Liverpool’s Anfield stadium. Gutierrez and many fans from around the world took to Twitter to express their appreciation for Liverpool’s fans actions.

The actions of Liverpool’s fans during the game with Newcastle came at the start of a difficult week for the English club as they remembered the 96 people who died in the Hillsborough tragedy. Fans like Igor Cornelsen (yolasite.com) has learned that a minute’s silence was held throughout the city of Liverpool in respect of the tragedy that occurred on April 15th 1989 in an FA Cup semifinal between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest.

Peterson and Goddell Discuss Reinstatement

Peterson and Goddell Discuss Reinstatement

It was only last year that Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was suspended from the NFL indefinitely. Now it appears that Peterson is on his way back to officially rejoining the league.

On Tuesday Adrian Peterson met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goddell in an effort to discuss his reinstatement into the NFL. The meeting comes only eight days before his current suspension dating back to last year, expires. Fans like Christian Broda know that this meeting happened to be the first time the two sides have spoken with each other ever since he was first suspended earlier last season.

The meeting also lasted close to ninety minutes and took place in New York, where the NFL headquarters is located. While serving his suspension, Peterson was also placed on the NFL’s special exempt list for most of the 2014 season, and that exemption is soon coming to an end.

However, even with the suspension cleared up there is still the obstacle of wondering what team the Vikings star will play for by the time the 2015 NFL season starts. Originally, Peterson has shown he isn’t interested in staying with the Vikings for much longer, but the team has made it clear they want him to remain in Minnesota at least for this season.

As for Peterson, he is currently working with a $12.75 million salary that continues on for the next three season.

Physical Therapy Provides Health Benefits

When we think of physical therapy, we often think of someone who has been injured in an accident or who has suffered a stroke and must learn how to be mobile once again. While physical therapy does cover those two scenarios quite well, it also does much more. Physical therapy provides health benefits that go beyond the scope of just helping someone learn to move their arms or legs again.

Physical therapy helps regain muscle strength, reduce pain, have better coordination, reduce inflammation and joint swelling and reduce stress, just to name some of the things the non-invasive treatment does. A trained physical therapist helps a person have improved performance for everyday activities plus ward off future problems by keeping muscles and joints flexible.
All age groups can benefit from physical therapy, including children. Pediatric physical therapists are becoming more common in the medical field. These specially trained therapists help children develop better motors skills and range of motion that will help them in every aspect of growing up. Children with special needs are the ones which can benefit the most from having regular physical therapy.
The real advantage to physical therapy, in addition to pain relief and improved muscle function, it that is has no side negative effects. That is something that has been discussed on Crunch Base as a major selling point.

International Search Underway for Missing Climber

 

A search extending across two nations is underway in South America for a famous Indian mountain climber, Malli Mastan Babu. Reportedly, Indian embassies in Chile and Argentina have sought to help coordinate efforts to locate him. He disappeared in the Ceros Mountains and the search effort is currently focusing on the Chilean side of the border.

Malli Mastan Babu’s sister, Dr. Malli Dorasanamma informed the Times of India that her brother had planned to go climbing in the area with friends. He arrived at a base camp on March 24th, heading into the mountains the same day. People at the camp expected he would return by the evening, but he failed to appear and weather conditions deteriorated sharply. She indicated that one of his friends, Hernan Agusto Parajon, told her that her brother was missing on March 26th. Malli Mastan Babu had booked a return flight to India on March 28th, but did not catch the plane stated Jason Halpern

Malli Mastan Babu has scaled mountains on seven continents. His ability as a climber earned him the designation “fastest 7 summiteer.” He belongs to the Indian Mountaineering Federation, whose members have reportedly sought assistance from other climbers in South America in locating him.

An official connected with the Argentinian embassy indicated to the news media that Malli Mastan Babu’s disappearance creates concern for his safety: “The range is rocky and windy and filled with crevasses.”
