City also moved to 37 points from 13 games — the highest ever points total at this stage of a Premier League season.ADVERTISEMENT Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Dragic, Ellington lead slow-starting Heat past Bulls Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?

Substitute Gabriel Jesus had his shot saved, but it popped up into Sterling’s midriff and looped into the top corner.___STERLING ON THE UPIt wasn’t Sterling’s first late winner of the season for City. The England winger scored deep into stoppage time at Bournemouth in August to secure a 2-1 victory.Sterling has previously faced criticism for failing to add end product to his prodigious dribbling skills and pace, but he has been prolific in front of goal so far this campaign. His goal at Huddersfield was his 12th in 18 appearances in all competitions.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Having started the season considered the side most likely to challenge the Premier League’s “Big Six,” Everton is swiftly falling into a fight at the other end of the table.Southampton became the latest side to take advantage of Everton’s disarray. Gylfi Sigurdsson’s long-range strike canceled out Dusan Tadic’s opener, but Charlie Austin scored two second-half headers before Steven Davis rounded off the scoring.Former Everton player David Unsworth has been in temporary charge since Ronald Koeman was fired on Oct. 23, but has managed just one win during his seven-game tenure. The club is still searching for a permanent replacement, with Unsworth’s failure to improve results likely having ruled him out.“I wouldn’t go that far so early,” said Unsworth, when asked if Everton were embroiled in the relegation fight. “I think we are in a tough moment, I think we have a massive week ahead of us. If you ask me that question next week I can give you a more honest view.Everton is now 16th, just two points clear of the relegation zone. Southampton moved up to 10th.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award After Huddersfield took a shock lead, Raheem Sterling won a penalty — which Sergio Aguero converted to draw the teams level — before completing the comeback himself six minutes from time to restore an eight-point lead for City at the top of the table.Elsewhere, Alexis Sanchez’s last-minute penalty gave Arsenal a 1-0 win at Burnley and Southampton crushed Everton 4-1.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSBack on the throneAfter handing Manchester United its first league defeat of the season in October, Huddersfield had another famous victory in its sights when Christopher Schindler’s header deflected in via City’s Nicolas Otamendi in added time at the end of the first half.However, City leveled just two minutes after the break when Aguero calmly converted his spot kick after Sterling was brought down by Scott Malone. Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set “He (Sterling) is still young, he’s able to improve,” Guardiola said. “We are going to be there to help him to become a better player. We are so satisfied with his performance.”___LATE AGAINWhen Arsenal went into added time still level with Burnley, history suggested victory was still within its grasp.On its last trip to Turf Moor, in October 2016, Laurent Koscielny scored the only goal in the 93rd minute. In the corresponding fixture at the Emirates Stadium in January, Sanchez stepped up eight minutes into added time to give Arsenal a 2-1 win after Andre Gray had leveled with a penalty of his own five minutes earlier.There was only one spot kick on this occasion, as Sanchez found the bottom corner two minutes into stoppage time after James Tarkowski was adjudged to have pushed Aaron Ramsey.“There’s a lot of me inside, that’s raging a lot,” Burnley manager Sean Dyche said. “Football’s a harsh game and sometimes it hurts you.”It was only the second away victory in the Premier League for Arsenal this season and came against a Burnley side on a three-match winning streak, in which it had not conceded. The win moves the Gunners back above Tottenham and into the top four, but it remains 12 points adrift of City.___EVERTON CRISIS Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. last_img read more

GPHC to offer glaucoma screening this week

first_imgThe Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) will be providing a much-needed service by offering free glaucoma screenings throughout this week.This initiative was organised in commemoration of World Glaucoma Week, which runs from March 11-17.Usually, patients would have to have the recommendation of a physician or optometrist in order to be eligible for screenings at the eye clinic. However, for this week, the GPHC has made the service more easily accessed.The screening services will run from March 12 to March 16 at the GPHC’s Eye Clinic. The screenings are mainly open to citizens who are 40 years and over. An exception to this, younger persons who have blood relatives who have been diagnosed with glaucoma. The eye clinic plans on screening some 40 persons each day and screenings are inclusive of vision tests, eye pressure tests and nerve examinations.The GPHC has noted that the reason behind this particular initiative was the fact that many persons were not aware that they may have glaucoma.Also termed ‘invisible glaucoma’, the disease can be actively deteriorating a person’s optic nerve without them knowing or experiencing symptoms. Affected patients only usually go for a check-up after their vision has been affected.On the other hand, the GPHC will also be hosting a Glaucoma Continuing Medical Education (CME) Session. The collaborative effort, with Medi Pharm Inc, will aim to further educate medical practitioners, predominantly optometrists and nurses, on glaucoma diagnosis and treatment methods.Glaucoma is a disease that damages the eye’s optic nerve. This damage usually occurs when fluid builds up in the front section of the eye. That extra fluid increases the pressure in the eye, damaging the optic nerve. The most common type of glaucoma in Guyana is ‘open angle’. This type of glaucoma is painless and completely invisible to the patient. Patients will only become aware of the problem when their vision is affected. Open angle glaucoma predominantly affects Afro-Guyanese.last_img read more
