The Lakers won, 108-107. (AP Photo/Reed Saxon)LOS ANGELES — After the Los Angeles Lakers surged to a big late lead, the Orlando Magic erased it all and even went in front with 5 seconds left. Brook Lopez put the Lakers back ahead in the final second, setting the stage for a momentous finish.Thanks to a mistake with the Staples Center clock, the Magic didn’t even get the chance.ADVERTISEMENT Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina GALLERY: Barangay Ginebra back as PBA Governors’ Cup kings UK plans Brexit celebrations but warns businesses may suffer LATEST STORIES “I don’t understand the rule,” said Nikola Vucevic, who had 24 points and 12 rebounds for Orlando. “Pretty much any home team, if you’re up one and still got 1 second (on the clock), as soon as somebody throws it, just run the clock, and if somebody touches it, it’s a jump ball. It doesn’t make any sense. I think they’ve got to look into that. That’s frustrating when things out of your hands hurt you. But at the same time, that’s not why we lost the game.”Aaron Gordon scored 28 points and made a driving, go-ahead layup with 5 seconds to play for the Magic, who trailed 106-97 before scoring 10 straight points. Lopez then drew a foul while backing into the low post with 0.6 seconds left, and he coolly made both free throws.“I knew I was going to hit them,” Lopez said. “It was bizarre. I guess we had the game-winning jump ball.”Lonzo Ball had 16 points, six rebounds and five assists for the Lakers, who broke open a tie game with an 11-0 run midway through the fourth quarter, capped by Lopez’s thunderous dunk with 6:09 to play. But the Magic stormed back and trimmed LA’s lead to 106-105 when Jonathon Simmons made one of two free throws with 33 seconds left.Isaiah Thomas added 13 points and nine assists off the bench for the Lakers, who thrived despite the absence of leading scorer Brandon Ingram for the third straight game due to a strained groin.ADVERTISEMENT Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours MOST READ Lopez scored 27 points and hit two free throws with 0.6 seconds to play, and the Lakers blew a nine-point lead in the final 90 seconds before rallying back to beat Orlando 108-107 on Wednesday night.The game ended with a curious sequence of events. When the Magic inbounded the ball at midcourt after Lopez’s free throws, the clock started before anyone had touched the long pass. But because the mistake was technically a clock malfunction, the officials said the teams must have a jump ball at center court instead of replaying the possession, effectively preventing the Magic from getting a final chance to win.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk“Just common sense would tell me in that situation, if the clock started early, just redo the possession,” Orlando coach Frank Vogel said. “They felt otherwise.”The weird ending ruined an otherwise thrilling finish between the Magic, who have lost nine of 11, and the surging Lakers, who have won six of seven. “It’s obvious we’ve got a young group, and we didn’t execute down the stretch,” Thomas said. “I still don’t even know how it ended. I don’t even know what the call was. That (stinks) for the Magic. I’m glad we won.”TIP-INSMagic: Before the game, Orlando waived guard Rashad Vaughn.

7 7 7 7 7 7 6. Bernd Leno (Bayer Leverkusen) – Linked with moves already this year, the German has a number of big clubs monitoring his progress and its likely Guardiola will know plenty about him after three years with Bayern Munich. The 24-year-old seems happy to stay with Leverkusen for one more season but could be tempted if the offer is right. 7 4. Jan Oblak (Atletico Madrid) – Following Thibaut Courtois at the Vicente Calderon but Oblak is making an incredible reputation for himself. A stunning shot-stopper with brilliant reflexes, the 23-year-old won the LaLiga Zamora Trophy for the best goalkeeper last campaign, while also being named in the LaLiga team of the season and Champions League squad of the season. He could be an inspired signing but we doubt Diego Simeone will let him go without a fight. 3. Marc-Andre ter Stegen (Barcelona) – After playing only cup matches for the last two years, the German may well want a change of scene this summer. Able to play with the ball at his feet, something Joe Hart needs to develop, he seems like a wise investment but could cost up to £68m, which is his release clause. 5. Mat Ryan (Valencia) – The talented Australian 24-year-old moved to Spain from Club Brugge last year with a big reputation but has found his development stalled by Diego Alves. Hes still got great potential and could be moulded by Guardiola too, at little cost. 7. Rui Patricio (Sporting Lisbon) – A mainstay between the sticks since 2007, it may be time for Patricio to move on and Manchester City would represent a step up. He was also in the Euro 2016 team of the tournament after his nations extraordinary win in France. Joe Hart’s Manchester City future is looking bleak after he was dropped by Pep Guardiola for their opening day Premier League clash with Sunderland.Without the shot-stopper, who made two high-profile mistakes for England at Euro 2016, the Citizens managed to sneak a 2-1 victory thanks to a late Paddy McNair own goal with Willy Caballero between the sticks.And it could well pave the way for Hart’s exit with a top goalkeeper being brought in to replace him.But which superstar shot-stoppers are going to be on Guardiola’s list of targets? Click the right arrow above to find out… 1. Samir Handanovic (Inter Milan) – Click the right arrow above for more possible Joe Hart replacements… – At 32-year-old the Slovenian is at his peak and could be up for a switch given the Nerazzurris lack of Champions League football this season. The fact he has retired from international football will also be a bonus for Guardiola. 2. Gianluigi Donnarumma (AC Milan) – With Man City attempting to create a younger squad, there is a chance they could move for the Milan starlet but the talented teen could well cost a lot of money with the Rossoneri unlikely to sell him cheaply.

19 February 2016Solar panel technology, perfectly suited to the African climate and topography, is one of the fastest growing renewable energy solutions for the future. And Morocco is leading the way in perfecting solar’s science and industry.Located near the town of Ouarzazate in the Sahara Desert, the Noor solar thermal project, comprises three exponential phases that will be completed by 2020. According to Nasa, it will be the largest solar energy installation in the world, making it visible from space.NOOR 1, the first 160 megawatt power plant! @Ouarzazate https://t.co/ww2Sjqvzoo pic.twitter.com/exdlWvOsvZ— SOLAR IMPULSE (@solarimpulse) February 16, 2016The first Noor 1 phase of the venture was switched on at the beginning of February 2016. It is expected to begin supplying over a million households in Morocco and its neighbours using sun energy gathered from 500 000 solar mirror panels.The panels gather and concentrate the sun’s energy to heat water that produces steam that powers energy-generating turbines. The advantage of solar thermal power, apart from its limitless source, is its heat storage capabilities. It stores the heat to make energy at night. Unlike conventional photovoltaic (semi-conductor cell) systems, thermal systems don’t suddenly produce less when a cloud passes over.Cool infographic showing how solar thermal works #CleanTech#Solar #Water #coal #fracking #oilandgas #Oil #Renewable pic.twitter.com/PDFuhHj2gj— Greenbelt Solar (@greenbeltsolar) October 30, 2013The solar panel concept is popular in parts of the world where sunlight is constant throughout the year, particularly in deserts. The largest functioning solar panel project is currently in operation in the Mojave Desert in the USA, according to The Guardian.In 1986, the German particle physicist, Gerhard Knies, calculated that the world’s deserts received enough energy in a few hours to provide for humanity’s power needs for a whole year. The challenge though, has also been successfully capturing the energy generated and transporting it from the desert plants to urban areas.With growing, adaptable infrastructure, as well in research into the technology, Africa is perfectly suited to lead the way in finding affordable, practical solutions.Solar thermal energy in South AfricaWeather conditions and topography in South Africa offers perfect conditions for the solar panel concept, with various projects already using the technology in South Africa.Operational plants in Pofadder, Upington and Groblershoop generate 200MW of power, while new plant constructions in Northern Cape, including the Redstone and Xina CSP operations, will add another 300MW to the national grid over the next three to five years.The Helio100 project at Stellenbosch University is researching prototype small- scale concentrated solar power for use in the consumer market.Meanwhile, in Morocco, the first phase of the Noor installation covers hundreds of hectares, but once completed in 2020, Noor will span more than 24km2, an area larger than the country’s capital city of Rabat.Noor 1 is creating 160 megawatts of power, making it, even in this first phase, one of the world’s largest solar thermal power plants. As Noor 2 and 3 are completed, the energy generation is expected to be 580 megawatts.The Noor Ouarzazate Solar Complex, world’s largest solar power plant was located in which country?Morocco pic.twitter.com/JzZYpuhGcg— General Knowledge (@GKFORWIN) February 12, 2016Almost half of Morocco’s energy is expected to come from renewable energy, with a third of that from solar. According to the World Bank, Morocco currently imports 97% of its energy. It believes its investment in the solar plant will help to make the country less reliant on those imports and reduce its long-term carbon emissions by millions of tons.Together with the African Development Bank and the Moroccan government, the World Bank has invested almost $700-million to begin the first phase of the Noor project that will, over the next 10 to 20 years, bring much-needed renewable energy solutions to Africa and the world.Source: AFKInsider

Dhonis under-utilisation of the offie in the WT20 Dhonis under-utilisation of the offie in the WT20 semi-final against the West Indies on March 31 here and yesterday fuelled speculations that differences have cropped up between the two players.To add fuel to the fire was Ashwins answer in the pre-IPL game media conference here on April 7, when he said he did not bowl when the dew had come in to play a significant role in the lost semi-final against eventual World T20 champions, the West Indies.Dhoni, after the loss to the Windies, had said that he did not call on Ashwin to bowl again after giving him two overs initially, in which he went for 20 runs and also bowled a no-ball off which Man-of-the-Match Lendl Simmons was caught and then recalled to the crease, as he felt dew was making the ball wet and making things difficult for the spinners to grip.He said not playing for suspended IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings, which he had captained for the last 8 years since the T20 league inception in 2008 was an “emotional moment”.”As I said it was, I knew I would play for the Pune team but the actual moment comes when you start walking with the team-sheet in your hand till that point of time its only practise and everything.”It was a very emotional moment…since I have started playing T20 cricket represented the Indian cricket team, Jharkhand team in few tournaments and CSK for eight years, so it was a emotional moment not to see myself in yellow,” he quipped.advertisement”But at the same time as professionals, we have to move ahead and also not to prove to anyone but to prove a point to myself that I am making sure whatever I gave in for CSK, I am not leaving any inch that I am not giving for the Pune team,” he said.”So emotion set aside as professional, we had or I had to make sure that I am there how I was for CSK,” he said.”So it was a very emotional movement but at the same time I think…the faith that the franchise has shown not only in me but some of the other players also, we need to justify that,” he said.Dhoni, in fact, started answering questions at the promotional event with a preamble that if he is asked good questions today the number of questions he will be willing to answer to the media would go up next time and if not it will come down back to nil.”Depending on the quality of questions you ask it may go up to six in the next (such press conference) or come back to zero,” he said before answering questions.

Jaitley said that during assembly elections, Jaitley said that during assembly elections, Parliamentarians are busy campaigning and hence the actual dates will be decided after consultations, depending on the calendar of the state assembly elections. If the Budget is to be presented on February 1, the Economic Survey would have to be tabled in Parliament a day or two before that, going by the current practice. To meet that deadline, mid-year review of expenditure by various ministries is proposed to be completed by November 15. Even after the separate railway budget is scrapped and its proposals clubbed in the general Budget, the railways will continue to maintain its distinct entity status as a departmentally-run commercial undertaking as at present. Also, the Railways would be allowed to retain its functional autonomy with delegation of financial power rules to continue as is the case now. After the merger, the Railways would not have to pay dividend to the central government and its capital at charge would stand to be wiped off. Like for other departments, the ministry of finance will provide gross budgetary support to the Railways for incurring its capital expenditure. According to the proposal presented to the Cabinet, to ensure better targeting of benefits, all concessional railway passes provided to various categories of concessionaires will be linked to Aadhar number. Also, the Railway Convention Committee, which reviews the rate of dividend payable by the railways to the government, will be disbanded. Currently, the panel also suggests the level of appropriation to various funds of the railways such as depreciation reserve funds, development fund and pension fund. Officials said advancing budget presentation by a month and completion of the related legislative business before March 31 will pave the way for ministries and departments to ensure better planning and execution of schemes from the beginning of the financial year, April 1. Accordingly, the budget calendar would be advanced by about 3 weeks from the current schedule of it starting from the last week of October. Pre-budget consultations with various stakeholders are proposed to be completed by December 25. Ministries and departments would be asked to present their detailed Demand for Grants to Parliament by February 7, 2017. With the rollout of Goods and Services Tax, the changes in excise and service tax, which are normally proposed in the general budget, will shift to the GST Council and hence there will be a less onerous Finance Bill for Parliament to debate, sources said.
