LONGSHOT STREET MAVEN PULLS OFF GATE TO WIRE HEIST IN $58,000 SANTA ANITA ALLOWANCE FEATURE; BAZE, O’NEILL TEAM TO WIN AT 1 ¼ MILES ON TURF

first_img–30– ARCADIA, Calif. (April 2, 2015)–In a major departure from recent tactics, longshot Street Maven was gunned to the lead by Tyler Baze and he responded with a gate to wire triumph in Thursday’s $58,000 allowance feature at Santa Anita, winning by a length and a quarter while covering 1 ¼ miles on turf in 1:59.94.Trained by Doug O’Neill and off at 9-1 in a field of eight older horses, Street Maven, who broke slowly in his most recent start going 1 1/8 miles on turf and was some 15 lengths off the lead after the first quarter, paid $21.40, $8.00 and $4.60.“That was all Tyler today, putting him on the lead,” said O’Neill. “With the rails being out (30 feet), we thought he’d be more forwardly placed but to have him on the front end with the fractions they were going…we were cussing him mid-race, but we were lovin’ him at the wire.”Owned by R3 Racing and Calara Farms, Street Maven, a 5-year-old gelding by Street Hero, sailed through fractions of 22.88, 46.44, 1:10.85 and 1:34.98 en route to his third win from 10 career starts. With the winner’s share of $34,800, he increased his earnings to $93,670.“I was going fast the first quarter mile, but he was doing it so easy,” said Baze. “When they’re doing it that easy you can go that fast and get away with it. He’s a nice horse.”Although 8-5 favorite Wanstead Gardens made a big run through the lane with Victor Espinoza, he was unable to threaten the winner and paid $3.00 and $2.80.Crucero, who was off at 13-1 with Kent Desormeaux, checked in third and paid $4.80 to show.First post time on Friday at Santa Anita is at 1 p.m. Admission gates open at 11 a.m.last_img read more

Half-time: Fulham 0 Cardiff City 1

first_imgPoor defending from Fulham saw them go a goal down four minutes before the break.Despite having the better of the chances in the first half, the Whites were caught out when Aron Gunnarsson escaped the attentions of Richard Stearman and, with the outside of his right boot, clipped in a cross for Lex Immers, who was left totally unmarked to head in.Cardiff almost doubled their lead immediately afterwards as Sean Morrison’s header came back off the post.Fulham had had the better of the first half chances prior to the goal, with Emerson Hyndman and Ross McCormack both denied by Cardiff keeper David Marshall.Slavisa Jokanovic’s side, chasing a third league win in seven days, looked bright going forward and Moussa Dembele skied an early shot from the edge of the box.Cardiff, who need the points to keep in touching distance of the play-off places, responded with headers from Gunnarsson and Bruno Ecuele-Manga, which did not unduly threaten the home goal.Hyndman, who replaced the injured Tom Cairney in the starting line-up, showed the energy he can bring to the side when he intercepted a pass on the halfway line, strode forward 40 yards and then getting a shot away which Marshall palmed behind.Marshall was also equal to McCormack’s curling free-kick, but Fulham were left to rue lapses of concentration at the back when Cardiff went in front.Fulham: Bettinelli; Stearman, Madl, Amorebieta, Garbutt; Tunnicliffe, Parker, Ince, Hyndman; McCormack, Dembele.Subs: Lonergan, Fredericks, Burn, Baird, Christensen, Woodrow, Smith.Cardiff: Marshall; Peltier, Morrison; Ecuele-Manga, Malone; Noone, Gunnarsson, Ralls, Whittingham; Lawrence, Immers. Subs: Moore, Fabio, Connolly, Dikgacoi, O’Keefe, Zohore, Saadi.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Data and Deaths: Both Challenges for Maternal Health

first_imgPosted on September 27, 2010June 20, 2017By: Saumya Ramarao, Senior Associate, Population CouncilClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)The MHTF is soliciting reactions from the maternal health community to the newly released UN MMR data. Our hope is that, together, these comments will serve as a springboard for discussion and provide momentum towards MDG5.The welcome news is that globally maternal mortality is declining even though it may not be as fast as desired nor equally across all economic groups. Two recent estimates bring us this good news providing further fresh impetus to ongoing initiatives:http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140673610605181/abstract http://www.who.int/mediacentre/news/releases/2010/maternal_mortality_20100915/en/index.htmlThe second good news is that these estimates have focused attention on what has been known for a long time—the dearth of good quality data. Timely and quality data are essential to monitor programs, facilitate decision-making, and improve accountability of programs and governments to their citizens. “What gets measured gets done” is true in the field of maternal health as any other development field.The emphasis in discussions of maternal mortality so far has been on estimating the number of deaths. Estimating deaths is important for advocacy and for rallying support to this important cause. But, it is time now to move the dialogue beyond death counts to measuring morbidities, monitoring the quality of services, ensuring data are recorded consistently and accurately in health facilities and are collected and reported in a timely fashion.As countries implement medical interventions to save women’s life, strengthen their health systems, they can also innovate with data collection approaches. In a digital world, timely and good quality data collection should be easier, faster, and one can argue cheaper. There are proven examples of how primary health care facilities in remote areas are able to connect via cell phones to their districts and provincial headquarters to report current health situations and be provided immediate feedback. PDAs can be useful to frontline workers to organize their schedules for conducting outreach work and home visits. Client data can be entered in real time and transmitted to central databases making reporting easier and reducing time spent on manual recording across multiple registers.With the myriad possibilities of digital data collection available, it is only the paucity of imagination that holds us back.Share this: ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read:last_img read more

Mahagathbandhans prospects to improve in next two phases Mayawati

first_imgAzamgarh (UP): Rubbishing the BJP’s claim that it was doing good in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections, the opposition ‘mahagathbandhan’ on Wednesday said that on the other hand the prospects of the opposition alliance was improving day by day. “Our (electoral) prospects are improving…the prospects of the opposition alliance will further improve in the remaining two phases of Lok Sabha polls,” BSP chief Mayawati said at a joint rally with SP chief Akhilesh Yadav here. She said ever since the ‘mahagathbandhan’ was formed to take on the saffron party, “BJP leaders have lost their sleep.” Mayawati appealed to the voters to ensure a historic win for Yadav, who is the joint opposition candidate from the Azamgarh seat held by the SP in the outgoing Lok Sabha. Hitting back at the BJP, the BSP chief said, “We are not ‘mahamilawati’, it is Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is ‘mahamilawati’.” The PM has termed the mahagathbandhan’ as the ‘mahamilawati’ (adulterated) alliance. Dubbing the Congress and the BJP as two sides of the same coin, she said, “Dono kaa chaal chalan ek hai (both have same nature and character).” She said Modi will try to create more confusion in the days to come and appealed to the voters not to fall prey to his designs. “Unkey (Modi’s) achchey din ladd gaye (his good days are over) and bad days are staring at his face,” she said.last_img read more
