first_imgBALTIMORE — An eight-run inning naturally changed the narrative of the Orioles’ 12-3 win over the Detroit Tigers in Game 1 of the American League Division Series, but the winning formula was already in place.A couple home runs, solid starting pitching, and a bullpen as effective as any in the game had put the Orioles in position to seize the opening game of the series before they came to bat in the bottom of the eighth inning. And that’s when Detroit’s biggest weaknesses surfaced in transforming a tightly-contested 4-3 game into a blowout before a maniacal 47,842 at Oriole Park at Camden Yards Thursday night.No, the formula wasn’t flawless as starter Chris Tillman’s high pitch count chased him after five innings and right-hander Darren O’Day surrendered a solo shot to Miguel Cabrera in the eighth, but manager Buck Showalter made it clear he was going to use his best bullpen assets — the trio of Andrew Miller, O’Day, and closer Zach Britton — to protect the opportunity. With Tillman at 105 pitches, Showalter went right to Miller in the sixth inning with the heart of the Detroit lineup — Cabrera, Victor Martinez, and J.D. Martinez — due up.The big guns needed to be ready a little earlier than usual.“We’ve talked to them since the season was over about how this was going to work,” Showalter said. “The way we have normally used them, they know that it’s all hands on deck. And it felt like that spot of their order was good for Andrew. And the next group of guys was good for Darren. I knew that I would pitch Zach in the eighth inning.”Miller responded with 1 2/3 innings and O’Day got through an inning before allowing the homer to Cabrera. Britton then retired the only batter he faced to conclude the top of the eighth.We’ll never know if the first-year closer would have pitched a clean ninth for the first four-out save of his career, because the Orioles lineup took advantage of the Tigers’ biggest deficiencies in the bottom half of the inning.Despite the Tigers owning a more-balanced offense and the last three AL Cy Young Award winners in their rotation, their bullpen and defense lag far behind the Orioles in those areas, which led to their demise in turning a winnable contest into a humbling defeat. Errors by shortstop Andrew Romine and center fielder Rajai Davis didn’t help, but the trio of Joba Chamberlain, Joakim Soria, and Phil Coke only reinforced the many concerns about the Detroit bullpen throughout the season.In contrast, the Orioles played crisp defense and allowed only one run in four innings of relief to go up 1-0 in the best-of-five series.“I feel like everybody’s clicking right now at the same time,” said Miller, who expressed no concerns about bouncing back quickly after matching a season-high 32 pitches. “If you can get the ball to the next guy, we’re going to be in good shape. You trust that you go in there and give it your best until you run out of gas, and Buck asks the next guy to come in and we’re going to be pretty good.”The offensive explosion in the Orioles’ final turn at the plate made the outcome elementary, but it will be interesting to see how Showalter handles his staff with such a quick turnaround Friday afternoon.Game 2 starter Wei-Yin Chen will have his work cut out for him against a lineup that hit a league-leading .285 against left-handed pitching in the regular season, making you think the Orioles would be happy if he can give them five or six innings while keeping the score close. You’d imagine Showalter would prefer to stay away from Miller on Friday, but O’Day only threw 16 pitches and Britton five, meaning both will be available on Friday.Perhaps we’ll see the flame-throwing Kevin Gausman as the change of pace behind Chen to bridge the gap to the late innings and put the Orioles in position to take a commanding 2-0 lead in the series. Whatever the case, Showalter has options in the bullpen unlike Tigers manager Brad Ausmus, who probably felt he was only throwing gasoline on the fire that was the bottom of the eighth.On Thursday night, Baltimore’s biggest strengths and the Tigers’ most painful weaknesses came into focus, and it resulted in a convincing win for the Orioles.“It’s a different season. It’s a different set of rules,” Showalter said. “Everything is different. Now your team has to make the adjustments, and I think our guys know that. We’ve got to figure out how to win two more games from these guys. It’s going to be tough.”last_img read more

first_imgIn a brief statement, Roach said his 16-year association with former world champion Pacquiao had been terminated ahead of the 39-year-old fighter’s upcoming world title fight with Lucas Matthysse.Roach said he wished Pacquiao well for the future but had been “hurt” after learning of the Filipino’s decision to axe him indirectly.”Manny and I had a great run for 15 years – longer than most marriages and certainly a rarity for boxing,” said Roach.”I wouldn’t trade any of it. Inside the boxing ring and the political ring, I wish Manny nothing but the best.”I would be lying if I didn’t say I wasn’t hurt that he didn’t contact me personally about his decision, but the great times we enjoyed together far outweigh that.”Roach was an ever-present in Pacquiao’s corner during his rise to the pinnacle of his sport, helping mould the fighter into one of the best boxers in history.Pacquiao is to fight Matthysse for the Argentine’s WBA welterweight belt in Kuala Lumpur on July 15.Pacquiao has not fought in the ring since being defeated on points by Australia’s Jeff Horn in Brisbane in July, a loss that cost the Filipino star his WBO crown.Matthysse, who has 39 wins including 36 by knockout against four defeats, won the vacant WBA belt after beating Thailand’s Teerachai Sithmorseng in January.last_img read more

first_imgScottish Rugby Union chief Mark Dodson said he is ready to launch a legal challenge to prevent World Cup organisers cancelling his country’s game against Japan on Sunday – a measure that would almost certainly eliminate the Scots.A decision on the game in Yokohama will be made on Sunday when officials are able to assess the level of damage from Typhoon Hagibis, which has already forced the cancellation of two games due to be played on Saturday. One of those – New Zealand v Italy – eliminated the Italians and World Rugby are adamant that the rules, which say cancelled pool games cannot be rescheduled, must be applied identically across the board.Should the Yokohama match be cancelled, Scotland and Japan would receive two points each, sending Japan through and almost certainly eliminating the Scots – with Ireland also advancing.Dodson says that there is a “force majeure” clause that should enable the game to be played on a delayed date and slammed the officials for undermining the integrity of the tournament.World Rugby replied by saying they are disappointed by his comments when they are trying to find a solution and with public safety at risk.“We took legal advice on the participation agreement and were told there is flexibility in the schedule,” Dodson told a news conference in Yokohama, adding that he was not sure if there would be time to raise a legal case.“We are asking for a 24 hour delay so the game can be played in perfect safety. It’s a huge, pivotal game and our view is that it doesn’t sit right with us, it isn’t just.” Claiming that Scotland were “already winners in the court of public opinion,” he echoed the comments of Italy captain Sergio Parisse when adding: “I think most people feel that if it was one of the economic powerhouses of the game — let’s just say New Zealand — perhaps more thought would have been given to a flexible approach.”World Rugby later issued a statement saying: “It is disappointing that the SRU should make such comments at a time when we are doing everything we can to enable all Sunday’s matches to take place as scheduled, and when there is a real and significant threat to public safety owing to what is predicted to be one of the largest and most destructive typhoons to hit Japan since 1958.”Many frustrated Scots will see the statement as more evidence of World Rugby favouring the home nation because of wanting a tier-two team, and particularly the host, in the knockout phase.CROOKED FEEDThey are still stinging from the 2015 tournament when they were denied a place in the semi-finals by an incorrect last-minute penalty that handed Australia victory at Twickenham.Last week too there was general incredulity when Samoa were penalised for a rarely-policed crooked scrum feed in the last minute of the match against Japan — allowing Japan to regain possession and score the fourth try they needed for a bonus point that could prove decisive, at Scotland’s expense. And it is not just the Scots who raised an eyebrow at the Pool A schedule, which gives Japan a week between each of their matches while everyone else in the tournament has at least one short turnaround.The row is set to rumble through the weekend, with all eyes on the skies. Conditions in the Tokyo area were still calm on Friday night and the forecast is good for Sunday – the question is how much damage will be done in between.Fans who bought tickets for the cancelled matches through official channels have already received emails saying refunds will be paid automatically to their account. Tickets bought from “unauthorised secondary sources” will not be refunded.last_img read more

first_imgSpecial Needs Schools must be equipped with physical, educational and sufficient human resources to enable small group teaching and individualised programmes. This is the view of Education Minister Dr Rupert Roopnaraine.Education Minister,Dr Rupert RoopnarineThe minister also said that special needs teachers need to be able to benefit from continuous guidance and oversight provided by specialists. The minister was at the time delivering remarks at a special ceremony held at the Diamond Special Needs School in recognition of a grant from ExxonMobil to equip the school’s teachers for the delivery of special education.The minister said that the ministry also recognises that upgrading the knowledge and skills of Special Needs teachers is crucial to addressing the needs of children with specific disabilities. With this in mind, he explained that the ministry has begun negotiations with the Step by Step Foundation for children with autism.“The foundation and the school it runs can provide excellent theoretical and practical training opportunities for the ministry’s teachers,” the minister said. Minister Roopnaraine said that the ministry needs to provide such training for selected teachers across Guyana, “so that children with autism in all regions can benefit from excellent educational opportunities.”The Education Ministry has made a good start in addressing the needs of children with specific disabilities, but in addition to teacher training, Minister Roopnarine said that there are a number of other issues that the ministry still needs to address.“We need to improve public awareness, and reduce the stigma associated with the physical, mental and behavioural challenges of our special needs children.”The ministry also needs to address the difficulties that these children face using public transport and in finding suitable employment opportunities, he said.The grant from ExxonMobil not only provides for a training course for the teachers, but also funds disability-friendly physical works, including pantry and washrooms at the Diamond Special Needs School.The ceremony marked the completion of the physical works and the commencement of training. The latter is being facilitated and certified by the Institute of Distance and Continuing Education (IDCE) of the University of Guyana.Guyana’s Constitution requires that all children should have access to appropriate educational facilities, but because of the absence of appropriate physical facilities and trained teachers to handle special needs, and the individual challenges of special needs children, inclusivity is not always appropriate, hence the need for schools like the Diamond Special Needs School.last_img read more

first_img“He made it really his trademark kind of pudding,” she says. It’s the skillful combination of cake and sauce that is the secret to the perfect pudding, says Simon Johns, who runs the California-based English Pudding Co. “We make the cake, let it go cold, make the sauce, let that cool, then pour the sauce over the cake” before reheating a final time to serve, says Johns, whose parents run the Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding Co. Ltd. in Cumbria, England. On the heavier side is Christmas pudding, also known as plum pudding. And the alcohol in the sauce is key. “Traditionally, it would come to the table lit,” says Irish food historian Regina Sexton. “You get that lovely blue flame from burning alcohol.” Unlike sticky toffee pudding, Christmas pudding has a traceable history dating to the Middle Ages. It was predated by a porridge of meat, vegetables and fruits that evolved into pudding as cooking styles and technology advanced. The meat and vegetables gradually disappeared – though many Christmas puddings still call for beef suet – as people focused more on luxury ingredients, such as dried fruit. Sexton said the popularity of the pudding as a Christmas dish soared during the 19th century, when holiday festivities became more defined by popular culture influences, such as the novels of Charles Dickens. Many families still use recipes from that era, handed down from generation to generation. And despite the availability of commercially produced puddings, Sexton says families still feel drawn to make their own Christmas pudding. The baking process also is reassuringly old-fashioned. After the batter – eggs, butter, sugar, flour, breadcrumbs, liquor, fruits and spices – is mixed, it is boiled for up to eight hours, then hung in a sack to marinate for weeks. “I try to make them as early as I possibly can so the flavors will develop,” says Kay Lanigan-Ryan, the pastry chef at the Killarney Park Hotel in Killarney, Co. Kerry. The pudding then is boiled for another hour before serving, and it is topped with a brandy sauce. Some people still include coins or trinkets in the served pudding, a centuries-old tradition meant to bring luck to the diners who discover them. Another good-fortune custom centers around the mixing. Relatives would take turns stirring the mixture, making a wish with each turn. It’s a practice still followed by chefs such as Lanigan-Ryan. “All my chefs or staff that are in the kitchen, they all stir it and make a wish for the year ahead,” she said. — Recipe for Sticky Toffee Pudding This decadent dessert is the perfect finish to any holiday meal. For a variation, mix chocolate chips, cocoa powder or instant coffee powder into the batter just before baking. STICKY TOFFEE PUDDING Start to finish: 45 minutes Servings: 8 For the cake: 1 cup chopped dried dates 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 cup boiling water 5 tablespoons butter 3/4 cup brown sugar 2 eggs 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon ginger 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon rum extract For the sauce: 1 cup packed brown sugar 1/2 cup heavy cream 1 stick butter 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon rum extract Preheat oven to 350 F. Coat eight ramekins with cooking spray and arrange them on a rimmed baking sheet. In a small bowl, combine the dates and baking soda. Pour the boiling water over the dates and set aside. In a food processor, combine the butter and sugar and process until thoroughly incorporated. With the processor running, add the eggs one at a time and process until smooth. If needed, stop the processor and scrape down the sides. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and ginger into the mixture, then use a spoon or silicone spatula to gently fold in the dry ingredients. Stir in the date mixture, and vanilla and rum extracts. Spoon the batter into the ramekins and bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry. Meanwhile, make the sauce by combining all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. When the cakes are done, if the tops of the cakes have domed during cooking (expanded above the rim of the ramekin) use a serrated knife to trim and discard the dome, making the cakes level with the rim of the ramekin. To serve, pool a bit of toffee sauce in the center of each serving plate. Overturn a cake into the center of each pool (the cakes should release easily from the ramekins). Drizzle the top of the cake with additional sauce. Serve warm.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

The dessert certainly isn’t one of Britain’s oldest puddings, despite its iconic standing on the pastry scale. Its history is debated, with several hotels claiming to have invented the recipe. But Paston-Williams says a number of caramel-type puddings were popular in the 1930s, when it was en vogue for British chefs to recreate Victorian recipes. So sticky toffee pudding’s origins probably trace back to the mid-1800s. Paston-Williams credits chef Francis Coulson, however, for the pudding’s current popularity. He reportedly developed the delicacy in its current form at the Sharrow Bay Country House Hotel in Britain’s lake district in 1960. When it comes to classic British and Irish desserts, the proof is in the pudding – literally. Forget those smooth, gelatin-like convenience foods found in American supermarket snack packs and quick-mix aisles; these puddings are cakey, thick and rich. And they are a staple of the holidays. Reigning supreme among puddings are sticky toffee pudding (a spongy cake studded with dates and smothered in toffee sauce) and the seasonally ubiquitous Christmas pudding (a heavy, moist fruitcake topped with a liquor sauce). While Christmas pudding rarely appears outside the run-up to the winter holidays, sticky toffee pudding is a quintessentially British dessert that is a favorite throughout the year. last_img read more
