MOST READ Houston Astros’ Carlos Correa and George Springer celebrate Game 3 of baseball’s World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday, Oct. 27, 2017, in Houston. The Astros won 5-3 to take a 2-1 lead in the series. (AP Photo/David J. Phillip)HOUSTON — A perfect fit in their own place, the Houston Astros are halfway home.George Springer and the Astros broke out the bats early this time and kept up their big run at Minute Maid Park in October, beating the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-3 Friday night for a 2-1 lead in the World Series.ADVERTISEMENT QC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohort McCullers left in the sixth as Los Angeles scored twice to cut into a 5-1 deficit. Peacock followed, and shouldered the load for a shaky bullpen by posting his first save in 11 years of pro ball. The right-hander was nearly perfect, walking one and striking out four.“It was awesome,” said Peacock, who made 21 starts and 13 relief appearances during the regular season. “I’ve never experienced anything like that in my life.”Coupled with four shutout innings from McCullers to finish off the Yankees in Game 7 of the AL Championship Series, the unconventional Astros became the first team to have two saves of three-plus innings in one postseason.On a night when a lot went right for Houston, also credit third base coach Gary Pettis, who’s been having quite a postseason. He boldly sent Josh Reddick careening home on a wild throw by reliever Tony Watson for a two-out run in the fifth.The Astros rode the momentum of a thrilling victory Wednesday night in Los Angeles, where Marwin Gonzalez hit a tying homer in the ninth on an 0-2 pitch from star closer Kenley Jansen, and Houston went deep three times in extra innings before hanging on to win 7-6 in 11.Dodgers rookie Cody Bellinger almost won that game with a drive that was caught on the warning track in the ninth. He fanned all four times up in Game 3, leaving him 0 for 11 with seven strikeouts in the Series.“I think he’s just in that funk right now where he’s chasing balls out of the strike zone,” Roberts said.This game wasn’t nearly as dramatic, not that the home crowd minded.Fans were revved up from the start when injured Houston Texas defensive end J.J. Watt — who has raised more than $37 million for relief efforts after Hurricane Harvey — wobbled out to the mound on crutches to throw the first ball.Soon, it was time for the Houston hitters to take over.

Jose Altuve & Co. have dominated, too, outscoring the Red Sox, Yankees and Dodgers 36-10 in that span.“We’re very comfortable here,” Hinch said.Springer lined a leadoff double in the first and the Astros went on to win a home game for the first time in the World Series. They were swept by the White Sox in 2005, and this win left them two victories from a most elusive championship.Game 4 will be Saturday night when Charlie Morton starts for Houston. Left-hander Alex Wood pitches for the Dodgers, facing a lineup that has put at least one runner on in 14 straight innings.“Obviously, this crowd is into it. Very educated, very enthusiastic,” Dodgers manager Dave Robert said. “They’ve got some confidence over there, that team.”ADVERTISEMENT Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Green, Beal ejected after fight during Wizards-Warriors game View comments Stronger peso trims PH debt value to P7.9 trillion Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 Gurriel homered into the Crawford Boxes in left to begin the second — he became the 13th hitter already to homer in this Series. Reddick followed with a double and Evan Gattis, the designated hitter with the game in an American League park, drew a walk.Gonzalez launched a drive off the wall in left and wound up with an RBI single when Gattis held at second, seeing if the ball would be caught. Brian McCann singled home another run with one of his three hits, and Alex Bregman’s sacrifice fly made it 4-0.When Altuve doubled, Darvish was done after 1 2/3 innings. He threw 49 pitches and the Astros swung and missed only once.Darvish had done well at Minute Maid, going 4-1. That included a 2013 start when he was one out from a perfect game for the Rangers before Gonzalez singled.“The fastball command wasn’t there, and the slider was backing up. So he just really didn’t have the feel and couldn’t get any type of rhythm going,” Roberts said.Last month, Darvish and several Dodgers players wore Houston Strong T-shirts to raise money for hurricane relief. The four-time All-Star who previously played in Texas also contributed to the relief efforts.On Thursday, Darvish kidded that maybe his goodwill would lead to good luck.“Since I made that donation, maybe I can use a ball that doesn’t have much pop in it,” he said through a translator.Nope, didn’t quite work out that way.

(Photo by Jamie Squire/Getty Images)If you’re a college football fan – or, really, anyone who is not a coach – and you’re thinking about contacting a recruit, just stop. Don’t do it. Whether you’re simply trying to encourage a recruit to come to your school or berating a prospect for committing elsewhere, you’re 99 percent of the time going to come off in ill form to the 17-or-18-year-old high schooler. The following Alabama fan is someone who, unfortunately, does not follow the advice previously stated. This person somehow got the phone number of four-star linebacker Darrell Williams, an Auburn commit, and proceeded to text him about the Crimson Tide. We realize you’re passionate about your college football teams, people, and that’s why we love you, but please, don’t ever text a recruit.
Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Health, Sancia Bennett Templer, is calling on healthcare professionals to play their part in reducing antibiotic resistance by only prescribing and dispensing antibiotics when they are needed, and in accordance with current guidelines. Identified as one of the most significant threats to public health in recent history, antibiotic (antimicrobial) resistance is the ability of a microorganism, such as bacterium, virus and some parasites, to prevent antibiotics, antivirals and antimalarials from working against it. Story Highlights Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Health, Sancia Bennett Templer, is calling on healthcare professionals to play their part in reducing antibiotic resistance by only prescribing and dispensing antibiotics when they are needed, and in accordance with current guidelines.“The ripple effect of antibiotic resistance is enormous, as when medications do not work as they should, the treatment process takes longer, which results in longer hospital stay and increased hospital costs. This can also result in the increased economic burden on families and the society, and may even lead to disability and death,” she pointed out.Mrs. Bennett Templer was speaking at the launch of Antibiotic Awareness Week on Tuesday (November 14) at the University of the West Indies (UWI) Regional Headquarters in St. Andrew.Identified as one of the most significant threats to public health in recent history, antibiotic (antimicrobial) resistance is the ability of a microorganism, such as bacterium, virus and some parasites, to prevent antibiotics, antivirals and antimalarials from working against it.As a result, standard treatments become ineffective, infections persist and may spread to others, thereby increasing the prevalence of resistant bacteria in humans, animals, plants and the environment.The Ministry of Health’s National Surveillance Unit received 196 reports of multidrug-resistant organism infections in 2016. The medical diagnoses related to these multidrug-resistant organisms include urinary tract infections, bronchopneumonia, burns to the body, surgical procedures and wound infections.The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that more than 400,000 people develop multidrug-resistant tuberculosis each year, and dug resistance is starting to complicate the fight against HIV and malaria.Mrs. Bennett Templer is urging players in the agriculture sector to ensure that appropriate measures are in place to promote and apply good practices at all stages of production and processing of foods from animal and plant sources.Members of the public are advised to follow the prescribed dosage of the medication by public health officials; refrain from sharing antibiotics with friends or family members, and to follow the advice of the medical officer to use other types of medication where an antibiotic is not needed for treatment.Antibiotic Awareness Week is being observed from November 13 to 19 under the theme ‘Seek Advice from a qualified professional before taking antibiotics’.It seeks to promote responsible use of antibiotics among medical practitioners and members of the public in order to combat antimicrobial resistance.The week of activities includes an Agriculture Day on November 16 at the Juici Patties Veranda, Clarendon Park; and a breakfast event at the Marriot Hotel in New Kingston and a Medical Symposium at the UWI’s Faculty of Medical Science on November 17.The symposium will be addressed by Dr. Arjun Srinivasan from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), who will present on the multidrug-resistant gonorrhoea disease.Antibiotic Awareness Week is organised by the Ministry of Health, in collaboration with the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries; Pan American Health Organization (PAHO)/World Health Organization (WHO); the University of the West Indies and the National Health Fund (NHF).The launch included a forum featuring presentations by representatives from the UWI Microbiology Department and the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries on the causes, spread and measures to prevent antibiotic resistance. Antibiotic Awareness Week is being observed from November 13 to 19 under the theme ‘Seek Advice from a qualified professional before taking antibiotics’.
A prominent member of the Scottish parliament is taking up the cause of a young Nova Scotia woman and the Scottish island school that wants her to be its Gaelic teacher.Sine Halfpenny of Antigonish, N.S., was the only applicant for a Gaelic-language teaching job at Bunessan Primary School in Isle of Mull, Scotland.But she encountered visa issues, and couldn’t get approval to immigrate. She ultimately took a job in Manitoba that doesn’t allow her to use her Gaelic skills.“It’s frustrating because you got kids with no teacher,” Halfpenny said in a phone interview. “The kids are going into year two and they still don’t have a teacher.”Her story garnered the attention of British newspapers, with articles in The Telegraph and Scotland’s The Herald last fall.Now, Michael Russell, the local member in the Scottish parliament as well as the minister for U.K. Negotiations on Scotland’s Place in Europe, has written to the new British home secretary, Sajid Javid, urging him to reconsider Halfpenny’s case.“The local community affected by this decision have worked extremely hard to secure Gaelic education for their children and we must not let them down,” Russell said on Twitter this week.Halfpenny said she learned Gaelic from a childhood caretaker and fell in love with the language. She studied Gaelic at St. Francis Xavier University and became a certified teacher.The Isle of Mull opportunity intrigued her, and she obtained an additional teaching certificate qualifying her to work in Scotland.Halfpenny said the school gave her a conditional offer, which she accepted. Her trouble began when she tried applying for a work visa.“We kept getting denied,” she said.First, she said the government had filled its work visa quota for the month, so her application was rejected. When her application was finally accepted, she said she failed to show that she had a sponsor.Her sponsors, the regional councillors, couldn’t vouch that she would be making at least 30,000 pounds a year, a requirement of all visa applicants.“It’s not fair to keep a teacher that can be there and is willing to settle down in their area away,” said Halfpenny.Frustrated, Halfpenny moved on with her life.“It got to the point where I couldn’t stay in Nova Scotia,” she said. “It’s not easy to sub at home and keep your head afloat.”Halfpenny moved to northern Manitoba, where she now teaches English at Garden Hill First Nation High School.Russell, a member of the Scottish National Party, said he is disappointed with the Home Office’s immigration policies because they are “preventing good, qualified Gaelic-speaking professionals” from teaching in Scotland.He called for a “more progressive approach to immigration,” and asked the home secretary to reconsider Halfpenny’s case because of the school’s urgency to fill the position.Halfpenny said all she can do now is watch from afar as Russell and the local councillors continue to lobby for her.“They’ve been champions for me. I wish the process was easier on them so that we can just get to work. They’re good people and hopefully things will work out for the school,” she said.
