Kevin Durant to miss two more games for Warriors in Western Conference finals

first_imgHouston Rockets’ James Harden, left, and Golden State Warriors’ Kevin Durant (35) react to a referee’s call during the second half of Game 5 of a second-round NBA basketball playoff series Wednesday, May 8, 2019, in Oakland, Calif. (AP Photo/Ben Margot)OAKLAND, California — Warriors star Kevin Durant will miss the upcoming Games 3 and 4 of the Western Conference finals in Portland as he continues to recover from a strained right calf, and the timing of his next examination by doctors likely means he would not return until the NBA Finals if Golden State advances.Durant was re-evaluated Thursday before Golden State’s 114-111 Game 2 win in of the best-of-seven series with the Trail Blazers that put the Warriors up 2-0. Durant is not ready for on-court work — a necessary step before the two-time reigning NBA Finals MVP can return to game action. He will be re-examined in another week.ADVERTISEMENT The Warriors said Durant “has shown good progress since beginning his rehabilitation program one week ago. At this point, Durant is not ready to advance to on-court work.”“There’s no mental adjustment, you just play. You go out there with what you have,” coach Steve Kerr said. “This is our third game, 3 ½ games really, without him. We’re just trying to hold down the fort. Hopefully he continues to progress. And he has made progress but it’s a little more serious than we thought at the very beginning, so we’ll see how it all goes. He’s in there all day long getting treatment. Hopefully he’ll be back at some point.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsDurant’s 34.2 points per game lead all postseason scorers. He strained his right calf during the third quarter of Game 5 of the conference semifinals against the Rockets last Wednesday and didn’t travel to Houston for the Warriors’ Game 6 clincher. He then sat out Game 1 against Portland on Tuesday and again Thursday as Stephen Curry took on a greater scoring load.“He’s handled it great. He’s vocal. Still being a leader. Staying in all of our ears. Vocal during film,” said Quinn Cook, a reserve Warriors guard and close friend of Durant. “I know he’s been putting in extra work. I know he’s excited to get back.

And his versatility in his offense,” Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. “When you take him out of it, I think they do play a different style. Certainly Curry gets more involved, I think Klay gets more involved, because they need to. And so the focus or emphasis on those two guys probably becomes a little bit more.”In addition, Golden State center DeMarcus Cousins will be re-evaluated again in a week as he works back from a strained left quadriceps muscle sustained in Game 2 of the first round against the Clippers on April 15 — just his second career playoff game.Cousins has begun doing extensive on-court work such as running, shooting and agility moves, “but is still not ready for live action,” the Warriors said.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

India wary of New Zealand’s prowess in first ODI

first_imgDespite completing a 3-0 whitewash of New Zealand in the Test rubber, India will be wary of the visitors’ prowess in the shorter format when both the teams face off in the first of the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series here on Sunday. (Onus on captain MS Dhoni with senior players missing out)With the conditions at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) stadium favouring the pacers, New Zealand will bank on their recent ODI performance — winning four of their last five bilateral competitions, including a recent series win over Australia — to give a tough fight to the hosts. (India start favourites, New Zealand eye redemption in ODI series)Moreover, Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson has a better squad at his disposal, with the return of pacer Tim Southee and all-rounder Corey Anderson, making them a force to reckon with. Southee was ruled out with a late injury while Anderson’s arrival would bolster their misfiring middle-order. (Virat Kohli has done his job, focus now on MS Dhoni)However, Williamson will need runs from two of his most experienced batsmen — Ross Taylor and Martin Guptill — who have failed to click so far on this tour.Guptill, who scored just 159 runs from six innings, will not let those failures affect him in the ODIs. The opener has an average of 43.25 in ODIs with a strike-rate of 86.08, and is one of only five people in world cricket to have scored a double century in 50 overs. (Ajinkya Rahane vows to continue playing aggressive cricket in ODIs)advertisementHaving said that, New Zealand’s best chance of scripting history — they have never won a bilateral ODI series in India — will depend heavily on Williamson. The skipper needs to provide stability to the team and score runs, and also ensure the likes of Anderson and James Neesham in the lower order can have a go at scoring quick runs.Also with both premier spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja rested for the ODIs, the Kiwis will heave a sigh of relief when they take the field in the black jersey. Ashwin and Jadeja tormented the New Zealanders with the Chennai off-spinner emerging the highest wicket-taker of the Test series with 27 scalps.DEPLETED INDIAN SIDEOn the other hand, despite being the favourites, India have a comparatively untested side for the first three ODIs. Apart from Ashwin and Jadeja, pacer Mohammed Shami has also been rested. (Also read: Are we seeing a matured Virat Kohli mellowing down?)Injuries to Lokesh Rahul, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Shikhar Dhawan have ruled the trio out, creating chances for promising players like Mandeep Singh, Manish Pandey, Dhawal Kulkarni and Axar Patel — all of them part of the squad that toured Zimbabwe in India’s last 50-over cricket assignment.Senior batsman Suresh Raina has also been recalled to the squad, but he will miss the first ODI due to viral fever. (Also read: Suresh Raina ruled out of India’s first ODI against New Zealand)With Manish performing in India A’s tour of Australia and the aggressive Hardik Pandya in the side, Dhoni can afford to come up the order and bat with Kohli in the middle overs besides pushing Ajinkya Rahane to open with Rohit Sharma.Maharashtra keeper-batsman Kedar Jadhav may well get a look-in as a pure batsman with Dhoni donning the big gloves.The Dharamsala pitch generally assists pacemen and that could give Dhawal Kulkarni a place in the playing XI alongside Jasprit Bumrah, while Axar Patel, Amit Mishra and Umesh Yadav are the likely options in the bowling department.The Dharamsala ODI will be followed by matches in Delhi (October 20), Mohali (October 23), Ranchi (October 26) and Visakhapatnam (October 29). All five are day-and-night encounters.Squads:India: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Captain & wk), Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli, Manish Pandey, Suresh Raina, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Jayant Yadav, Amit Mishra, Jasprit Bumrah, Dhawal Kulkarni, Umesh Yadav, Mandeep Singh, Kedar Jadhav.New Zealand: Kane Williamson (Captain), Corey Anderson, Trent Boult, Doug Bracewell, Anton Devcich, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, James Neesham, Luke Ronchi (wk), Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, B.J.

Part of My Diary

She will be blogging about her experience every month, and you can learn more about her, the other Young Champions, and the program here.September 28, 2010“Welcome Faatimaa! This is our office and our workplace! I am sure that we can learn many things from each other.”That is my mentor’s voice in my ear. Ashoka Fellow Rita Sembuya tries to speak word by word to introduce Joyce Fertility Support Centre to me. “It started as a patient support organization for childless couples at 2001 and from 2007 it also concentrated on supporting women through education.”I am thinking to myself, how is it possible to work in a place made of just a balcony and an old garage, (although I cannot ignore its wonderful garden)! Oh my God!! Where am I!! I am surprised and trying to hide it. I remember the advice of my professor, Golnar Mehran, when she said goodbye to me. She said, “Wash your eyes and look in another way; in this way you will learn many things from Uganda.”Now it has been one month since coming to Uganda and starting work at the Joyce Fertility Support Centre. I see how this very small office with rare facilities is capable of doing big jobs and I am happy to be here.When I arrived my big problem was not being fluent in English, such a disturbing problem it is! Joyce group helped me to improve my language and to be familiar with the environment I am in, to know the context more and more. I know that if we are going to educate women according to our project there is need to connect the educational content to their context.During this time we had many meetings in this office to make clear what are we going to do. I recognized that Rita is perfect at brainstorming. She is doing this job so great that after finishing the meeting I feel pain in all of my neurons!!There are many similarities between my mentor’s philosophy in education and mine. Sometimes I ask myself how it is possible for two people studying different majors and living in two different continents, far from each other and have never met but have many similarities. I applaud all the decision makers for this match.During these days I have been able to see how the knowledge I learned during my masters course turns to practice, such a sweet time it is! Rita paved the way for me to visit some organizations and evaluate their work according to how they educate women in maternal health field. These visits helped me to improve my evaluation skills and to see with my eyes how the traditional model of education is dominant in maternal health field unfortunately. That model is one in which people must focus on convincing others to adopt a desired behavior, and provide information, repetition of messages or imitation of behavior (http://bmb.oxfordjournals.org/content/67/1/59.full).I wish to bring change in the way of education in maternal health during this project.Share this:last_img read more

The upcoming premium hatchback has already been spied testing in India. Tata Motors has now released a teaser of the car, ahead of its premier at the show. Upon its launch in India, Altroz will take on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai Elite i20 and Honda Jazz.The teaser shows the side profile of Altroz and it seems that the rear door handle is located on the C-pillar, similar to the positioning of the rear door handle on Maruti Suzuki Swift. It can also be gauged that the hatchback will have a rising window line and quite a large boot.First showcased at the Auto Expo 2018 as the 45X Concept, the hatchback was officially named as Altroz after a seabird known as Albatross, on February 25 by Tata Motors. It will be commercially launched in mid-2019.Tata Altroz will be the second vehicle from the company to sport the Impact 2.0 Design Language, after the recently launched Harrier. It will be engineered on the new ALFA (Agile Light Flexible Advanced) Architecture. With lightweight, modular and flexible characteristics, the ALFA architecture has the ability to evolve into a range of modern and youthful vehicles within a short development cycle, the company claims.Several spy-photographs of Tata Altroz available online indicate that the hatchback will get a bold look upfront and the company might take a cue from Harrier while designing the headlamps.

We will be definitely happy with Ravi bhai continuing as coach says

first_imgMumbai: Captain Virat Kohli on Monday said he is in favour of Ravi Shastri continuing as the head coach of the Indian cricket team despite the criticism it faced following the semi-final ouster from the World Cup. The current support staff comprising incumbent head coach Ravi Shastri, bowling coach Bharat Arun, batting coach Sanjay Bangar and fielding coach R Sridhar were given a 45-day extension following the World Cup, covering the West Indies tour from August 3 to September 3. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details “Well, the CAC (Cricket Advisory Committee headed by Kapil Dev) has not contacted me on this. But all of us share a great camaraderie with Ravi bhai and would definitely be very happy (to have him around),” Kohli told reporters when asked for his opinion on the appointment of chief coach. “But as I had said, it’s on the CAC to decide (how to go about it).” They may have failed to win the T20 World Cup in 2016 and the ODI World Cup in 2015 and 2019, but the Shastri-Kohli duo helped India climb the top of the Test rankings with a historic series triumph in Australia. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday Shastri was the team director till June 2016 until India lost in the World T20 semi-finals before being reappointed as head coach in 2017 after Anil Kumble was removed following his differences with Kohli. The interviews of applicants for India’s head coach are likely to take place on August 13 and/or August 14. The deadline for filing the applications for the head coach and support staff is July 30. The Committee of Administrators (COA) running Indian cricket has tasked the Kapil Dev-led ad-hoc committee to pick the next national coach. The ad-hoc body comprising former India captain Kapil, Anshuman Gaekwad and former women’s captain Shantha Rangaswamy had earlier appointed W V Raman as the womens team coach in December. Back then, the COA was a two-member panel comprising chairman Vinod Rai and former India women’s captain Diana Edulji, who had called the women’s coach selection process unconstitutional. She had asserted that only the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) was empowered to do so. But with serious doubts over the future of CAC comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman the CoA thought it was prudent to hand the responsibility to the ad-hoc panel.last_img read more

Farmer who provides eggs to MS attacked man in nightclub hours after

first_imgA farmer is facing sentence for breaking a reveller’s nose at a Cuban-themed nightclub after he had spent all day drinking at a Test match.Mitchel Britten, 24, drank more than half a gallon of beer watching England play New Zealand at Lord’s before going to the Embargo Republica club in Chelsea’s Kings Road.Britten, who helps run a farm that sells eggs to Marks and Spencer and The Happy Egg Co, was on the dancefloor with Neil Brotherston when he attacked his fellow clubber.Mr Brotherston suffered a broken nose, which required surgery, and he spent two days in hospital recovering after the attack on May 25 last year.

Mitchell Britten Britten and his friends then went to Pizza Express, where they shared a bottle of wine, before going back to the Chelsea apartment they rented for the weekend to change for a night out. Neil Brotherston Stephen Spence, defending, asked Britten if he was drunk, to which he replied: “Not at all, no.”Britten described being in a “merry sort of state” and said: “I had one gin and tonic there and that’s all I can remember. I knew what I was doing. They wouldn’t have let me in the club if I was too drunk.”Britten accepted that he headbutted Mr Brotherston and that he had not moved towards him.Mr Wright asked: “Why did you move so close to him?”Britten said: “I just believed we were dancing at the time.”Mr Wright asked: “Why choose him to dance with? I don’t know, I was just dancing in general.”Britten, of Wymondham, Norfolk, was acquitted of inflicting grievous bodily harm, but convicted of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.His sentence was adjourned until December 16 while reports are prepared. Britten claimed he “had to push Mr Brotherson with my head into his nose to get some personal space”.The farmer explained he could not use his hands to push him away because he was holding his drink at the time.A jury of seven men and five women took just over two hours to find Britten guilty of causing actual bodily harm after a two-day trial at Isleworth Crown Court.The farmer said he had “anything between three and five beers, with food” at the match as England bowled out New Zealand to win the Test on the fifth day.

Official US Navy ship fires warning shots near Iranian ship

first_imgDUBAI, United Arab Emirates — A U.S. Navy patrol boat fired warning shots Tuesday near an Iranian vessel that American sailors said came dangerously close to them during a tense encounter in the Persian Gulf, the first such incident to happen under President Donald Trump. Iran’s hard-line Revolutionary Guard later blamed the American ship for provoking the situation.The encounter involving the USS Thunderbolt, a Cyclone-class patrol ship based in Bahrain as part of the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet, is the latest confrontation between Iranian vessels and American warships. It comes as Trump already has threatened to renegotiate the nuclear deal struck by his predecessor and after his administration previously put Iran “on notice” over its ballistic missile tests.The Thunderbolt was taking part in an exercise with American and other coalition vessels in international waters when the Iranian patrol boat approached it, 5th Fleet spokesman Lt. Ian McConnaughey said. The Iranian ship did not respond to radio calls, flares and horn blasts as it came within 150 yards (137 meters) of the Thunderbolt, forcing the U.S. sailors aboard to fire the warning shots, McConnaughey said.“After the warning shots were fired, the Iranian vessel halted its unsafe approach,” the lieutenant said in a statement, adding that the Iranian vessel created “a risk for collision.” Large ships can’t stop immediately on the water, meaning getting close to each other risks a collision.Video released by the Navy included a sailor giving a position off the eastern coast of Kuwait as the Iranian vessel sat directly in front of an American warship’s bow. Another video included images of the Iranian ship off the Thunderbolt as its horn blared. The sound of machine gun fire followed.last_img read more

Photo: UNBThe United States wants Bangladesh to fulfil its commitment to have a ‘free, fair, participatory and credible national election in the country making sure that “people’s choice” is reflected in the final result.”The government of Bangladesh has committed to holding free, fair, participatory and credible elections that reflect the will of Bangladeshi people. We look to the government to fulfil this commitment,” said US ambassador in Bangladesh Marcia Bernicat on Thursday.She was talking to diplomatic correspondents in DCAB Talk at the Jatiya Press Club.DCAB president Rezaul Karim Lotus and general secretary Mahfuzur Rahman Mishu also spoke on the occasion.Ambassador Bernicat commended the holding of elections to Khulna and Gazipur city corporations but expressed concern by reports of election “irregularities, including ballot box stuffing, intimidation” of political players, polling agents before the end of voting.She also expressed concern about the reports of police harassment and arrest of opposition polling agents but expressed satisfaction over the lower level of violence.”This is very encouraging,” Bernicat said about wider participation of political parties in the polls with lower level of violence.Recalling good elections held in Bangladesh in the past, she said, “You have laws to create fair conditions and you have the know-how to hold fair elections.”Bernicat said Bangladesh needs a political environment that promotes tolerance, human rights, and supports the democratic process that allows all the citizens to have a strong, peaceful voice in their own future.”Freedom of expression, vibrant media, the right to peaceful assembly, including demonstrations, and free, fair, participatory and credible elections are vital for continuous and stable growth of Bangladesh,” she said adding that there is no trade on between the two.Responding to a question, Bernicat said in some ways municipal elections are leading indicators of what the general election look like.”The government has pledged to have free, fair, and participatory and credible elections. It matters to us as a fellow democracy that you have good elections,” she said.The US ambassador, who came to Dhaka three years back, also said what really matters to them is that the people of Bangladesh believe those elections were fair.”If you don’t believe that your voice was properly heard that you have the opportunity to voice your choice,” she said sharing things on how a democracy survives and thrives in a country.Bernicat said Bangladeshis earned that right, they fought for that right and they died for that right in 1971 which should never be taken away.She said the US will continue to cheer on the successes related to previous elections and will continue to urge to address the concern of irregularities.Bernicat said they want to see nobody is worried about that their voices will be heard and their choices are reflected on the final results.The envoy said Bangladesh and the US are built on the same democratic principles and foundations. “This is what makes both of our countries strong.”Bernicat said a strong Bangladesh is crucial to the stability of Indo-Pacific region and US’ Indo-Pacific strategy aims at building more stable and prosperous region where sovereignty is upheld.She also said the US has partnered with Bangladesh to promote peace and stability in the South Asia.On cooperation in the areas of countering terrorism and violent extremism, the US Ambassador said US is committed to working with Bangladesh for safety and security of the people of the two countries. “This is a global issue and it requires a coordinated global response.”last_img read more

FBI ReReleases Dozens Of 911 Pentagon Photos After Glitch

first_img Share More than two dozen photos of the Pentagon taken after a plane crashed into it on Sept. 11, 2001, have reappeared in recent days on the FBI’s website six years after they were first made public. The posting misled some to believe the photos from 9/11 had never before been seen. FBI spokeswoman Jillian Stickels told The Associated Press on Friday the 27 photos were first posted online in 2011, but disappeared from the site because of a technical glitch. They were restored to public view once the FBI was alerted they were missing. Stickels didn’t know how long they weren’t visible. Several media outlets reported Thursday and Friday that the photos were previously unseen. The photos show plane debris, damage to the building and FBI teams on the site.– / 27last_img read more

Brain works backwards to retrieve memories

first_imgWhen we remember a past event, the human brain reconstructs that experience in reverse order, according to a study which could help assess the reliability of eye witness accounts of crime scenes. The study, published in the journal Nature Communications, reconstructed the memory retrieval process, using brain decoding techniques. These techniques make it possible to track when in time a unique memory is being reactivated in the brain, said researchers from the University of Birmingham in the UK. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfUnderstanding more precisely how the brain retrieves information could help better assess the reliability of eye witness accounts, for example of crime scenes, where people often are able to recall the overall ‘gist’ of an event, but recall specific visual details less reliably. The researchers found that, when retrieving information about a visual object, the brain focuses first on the core meaning – recovering the ‘gist’ – and only afterwards recalls more specific details. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThis is in sharp contrast to how the brain processes images when it first encounters them. When we initially see a complex object, it is the visual details – patterns and colours – that we perceive first. Abstract, meaningful information that tells us the nature of the object we are looking at, whether it is a dog, a guitar, or a cup, for example, comes later. “We know that our memories are not exact replicas of the things we originally experienced,” said Juan Linde Domingo, lead author of the study. “Memory is a reconstructive process, biased by personal knowledge and world views — sometimes we even remember events that never actually happened. But exactly how memories are reconstructed in the brain, step by step, is currently not well understood,” Domingo said. During the study, participants saw images of specific objects, and then learned to associate each image with a unique reminder word, for example the word ‘spin’ or ‘pull’. The participants were later presented with the reminder word and asked to reconstruct the associated image in as much detail as possible. Brain activity was recorded throughout the task through 128 electrodes attached to the scalp, allowing the researchers to observe changes in brain patterns with millisecond precision. The researchers trained a computer algorithm to decode what kind of image the participant was retrieving at different points in the task. “We were able to show that the participants were retrieving higher-level, abstract information, such as whether they were thinking of an animal or an inanimate object, shortly after they heard the reminder word,” said Maria Wimber, senior author of the study. “It was only later that they retrieved the specific details, for example whether they had been looking at a colour object, or a black and white outline,” Wimber said.last_img read more

Forget Google Glass There May Be a Snapchat Glass in Your Future

first_img Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Could Snapchat be branching out?It seems highly possible, according to a Cnet.com report indicating the $16 billion company is recruiting a number of hardware specialists.Related: Snapchat Sees 6 Billion Video Views Every Day. But What Does This Figure Actually Mean?Though everyone working for the stealth project is staying quiet, Snapchat has hired at least 16 wearable technology specialists from a variety of backgrounds to work on the team, according to the outlet.There’s no telling what the team is actually doing in that Snap Lab, but it’s entirely possible they’re hard at working developing a “Snapchat Glass” (most members reportedly have experience developing smart glasses or related devices).The release of its own wearable devices could help Snapchat expand its consumer base and longevity, since right now most of its users are teenagers. It could also make the social network more accessible, eliminating the need for users to navigate through their phones to find the app.If Snapchat is developing smart glasses, it has a tricky PR battle ahead. As proven with Google Glass, encouraging people to wear computers on their faces can be problematic.Related: The Quick Guide to Using Snapchat for Business in 2016Back in 2013, even Snapchat CEO and co-founder Evan Spiegel seemed hesitant about the idea.”[Y]ou kind of feel like you have a gun pointed at you, and that doesn’t fit into the Snapchat experience and certainly doesn’t make Snapchatters feel comfortable — so that’s not something we’re willing to explore right now,” he told The Huffington Post.

Injured soldier holidays in Cyprus thanks to local charity

first_imgA British soldier who was badly injured in an Afghanistan ambush is holidaying in Cyprus with his family thanks to the generosity of a local charity and its supporters.Lance Corporal Martyn Compton, a Household Cavalry soldier, was at 24, the only survivor of an attack during a roadside ambush on his convoy in Helmand province in Afghanistan in 2006.Three of his patrol were killed when a massive roadside bomb was detonated before he was blown up and set on fire by Taliban rockets. He was then shot twice as he dragged himself to safety.Compton, from Kent, suffered horrific burns to most of his body, he also lost his ears, much of his nose and his eyelids were fused.Thanks to a local Paphos charity, The Military and Retired Holidays for Heroes (March) the soldier and his family, wife Michelle, father Robert and children Archie, 7 and Coral, 6,  –– are currently enjoying a much-needed holiday in Paphos.They have been to Cyprus before and thoroughly enjoy their time here“This gives you time as a family, it’s great to come out and enjoy ourselves and being together is important. I hope people continue to support this charity,” Compton told the Sunday Mail.“It’s lovely to know that people have donated their house for us, it’s unbelievable what people actually do, and Alan and Barbara put in a lot of hard work too.”Alan Wilson and wife Barbara, set up ‘March’ in 2010 as a non-profit organisation offering donated holiday homes to injured or traumatised military personnel.Wilson said they were delighted that a generous property owner in Peyia came forward and offered a villa with pool to enable the Compton family to enjoy a holiday abroad this year.“Martyn has severe burns and PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and is staying in Cyprus for two weeks. We are so grateful to everyone that supports us and donates their properties for free to enable families such as Martyn’s to spend some much-needed relaxation time together,” he said.The member of the Household Cavalry suffered 75 per cent third-degree burns all over his body.Since the ambush in 2006, he has undergone more than 500 hours of operations and years of rehabilitation.Wife Michelle, (they were engaged at the time), received the news of the attack from her future father-in-law.“The first glimpse of Martyn, he was wrapped head to toe in bandages. I knew he was badly injured but not to what extent,” she said.She said that he looked like a Michelin man – swollen and completely bandaged.“I think it was easier for me to see him, than for me to see himself. I’d got used to it,” she said.Compton said that realising the extent of his injuries and how they had altered his appearance was a strange experience.“It was weird, I felt like myself inside and I didn’t really know what to expect or what I looked like. That was the hard bit. I lost three blokes that day, so for me obviously, I was the lucky one. That’s how I deal with it.”He was in a coma for months, then continuous pain and endured more than 500 hours of operations and skin grafts. He has many more to come throughout his life.Compton was also shot straight through his right femur, an injury alone that sees a lot of people die from the loss of blood, said his wife.One of the hardest challenges Compton faces on a daily basis is the way that his skin reacts, as the burnt areas don’t sweat and the small burn free areas sweat twice as much. His sense of smell is heightened and his hearing isn’t great.“He is the same person and it’s important that he remembers that. When he came to and it was time to look in the mirror, I said: ‘You’re still you, you haven’t changed, but if you change as a person and become a recluse I will walk away.’ Now he’s probably more outgoing than he was before,” she said.After working at a Pupil Referral Unit, (PRU) Michelle is starting a new job in September as an alternative learning provision teacher, teaching students who find it hard to stay in lessons and behave.“I feel very lucky to have her,” said Compton, who said that he is used to people staring at him.“It’s just one of those things.”In 2010, he discovered KartForce and has gone on to compete as part of a high-level team. He was appointed the first KartForce Ambassador and in 2015, and was selected to be one of four founding members of Team BRIT, a new division of KartForce aimed at team endurance car racing.He credits racing with pulling him out of a very dark hole and a cycle of operations and rehabilitation. Initially, he was invited to try go-carting and then started racing.Compton said that the aim is to be the first all-disabled team to race at Le Mans in 2020, consisting of around fifteen ex-military and civilian members. He said that they operate as a normal team and are trying to get sponsors, which is the hard part.He will also cycle in a race across New Zealand from South to North with the Pilgrim Bandits a specialist military charity which offers challenging missions around the world that rebuild self-belief and confidence.“I like to push myself and there are charities that help you to do that, so I haven’t let my injuries stop me from doing anything. It’s an important message.”His wife added: “We take every day as it comes.” To support Martyn Compton raise money for the Pilgrim Bandits: https://www.totalgiving.co.uk/mypage/martyns_oprideYou May LikeClassmates.comSearch For Any High School Yearbook, It’s FreeClassmates.comUndohttps://netis.us/linksys-router-technical-support-number/Linksys Router Technical Support Number +1 (800) 891-0097https://netis.us/linksys-router-technical-support-number/UndoSports DropLegends Of The NFL: Ranking The 25 Greatest Players in NFL HistorySports DropUndo Britain preparing for a no-deal BrexitUndoProtest outside the House over foreclosures lawUndoFresh case of Blue Nile virus in northUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
