He didn’t exactly say she was a gold digger, but she don’t date broke ballers.Former NBA baller Antoine Walker is still seething from the fallout from longtime ex-girlfiend Evelyn Lozada. Walker, who infamously squandered all of his $110 million NBA fortune and is now buried under millions of dollars of debt, says Lozada left skid marks out of their relationship when the million-dollar lifestyle came to an abrupt halt.Walker broached the topic during a provocative and comprehensive interview with “The Russ Parr Morning Show” and he went in hard on Lozada:“My thing with Evelyn is she reaped a lot of benefits of my wealth. And when it got tight, she chose to go a different direction. So that’s the problem that I have with Evelyn.“Evelyn went on with her reality show and we all know all her relationships she’s been in since me. It hasn’t been about let me make sure Antoine is ok. So that’s a big difference. I dated Evelyn for ten years. In 1999…I signed my ninth deal in 1999. So she got to reap the whole benefits of the whole process.“It’s tough when you take care of people and you make sure they’re good…their family…their daughters and then they just go left field. “When it’s been asked why didn’t Walker wife up Lozada if they dated for a decade, Walker responds this way:“We got engaged in 2007. We had a nasty…she caught me in a nasty breakup. We had broke up for a minute there. That’s what delayed the marriage.“And then she left when things started to hit the fan.”What do you think? Does Walker have a point? She also bolted from her famous relationship with Chad Johnson after he went broke and was guilty of domestic violence against her.The problem with that is this: Walker was known for being a philandering boyfriend who often cheated on Lozada and was physically abusive towards her. But she stayed with Walker for 10 years.Well, hopefully a third times a charm. Lozada is engaged to yet another big-money athlete, Los Angeles Dodgers star outfielder Carl Crawford. They now have a child together.

There have been calls for improved stewarding at GAA games in the county after Gaoth Dobhair footballer Eamon McGee clashed with a spectator at the weekend.After Sunday’s drawn Donegal senior football championship final at Sean MacCumhaill Park, McGee was approached by the spectator.Some members of the media and other spectators were present as McGee was verbally attacked by the man. The incident happened on the pitch after McGee had conducted some post-match interviews with the media. The situation was defused, but McGee suggested on Twitter that his wife and young child were also targeted.“Didn’t mind him getting onto me but getting onto Joanne while she was walking off the field with Daisy isn’t cool. Thankfully she was well fit for him,” McGee Tweeted. McGee had just played for Gaoth Dobhair against Naomh Conaill in a game that finished 0-8 apiece.

8 July 2011 President Jacob Zuma has announced plans to build a new R250-million hospital in Limpopo to address critical health challenges in one of South Africa’s most rural provinces. Zuma made the announcement during a visit to Siloam village, about 40 kilometres from Beit Bridge, on Thursday. Addressing the villagers, Zuma said the hospital would be built in phases over a period of three years and would replace the old hospital in the area. “We are here to check how government is performing and, as part of that, we want to ensure that you are happy with the services that are being rendered to you,” Zuma told locals. Accompanied by Minister in the Presidency Collins Chabane, Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi and Limpopo Premier Cassel Mathale, Zuma said the government’s new monitoring and evaluation approach would ensure that issues of health and education remained top of the state’s service delivery agenda. “The monitoring we are doing is not through papers. It is concrete, and we want to see and hear what people are saying, so when something is not working it can be changed,” Zuma said after listening to complaints from the residents about the current Siloam Hospital.Hospital walkabout Earlier, Zuma went on an impromptu walkabout at the hospital. People from the dusty streets of the village, who had gathered outside the hospital to welcome Zuma, greeted him with cheers. As he passed one of them, Muhatuli Mphepu shouted out, demanding that Zuma fire all the managers at the hospital “because they are useless.” “We want you to fire all of them, Msholozi, because they are useless and people are dying because we do not have a proper hospital system here,” she said in Tshivenda. Speaking at the community gathering afterwards, Zuma said an investigation would look into the challenges experienced at the hospital.‘Don’t be afraid of the government’ A sad picture of poverty emerged during Zuma’s visit, with people living in shacks pleading with the President to address unemployment and lack of amenities in the area. Zuma stressed that his visit remained focused on health matters, particularly the issue of the hospital. He asked residents who had raised other issues to write them down and pass the list to his officials. He encouraged those who attended to speak their minds “and don’t be afraid of the government.” “No baba come here to the front, come and speak from here next to me so people can see you. Don’t listen to that one …” Zuma jokingly said after his spokesperson, Zizi Kodwa, tried to interfere with one of the community speakers. Nurses also came in for harsh criticism from residents, who complained that they often had to wait for several hours at the hospital before receiving attention. After the meeting, Zuma was whisked away by helicopter to Lebowakgomo, where he visited another hospital before a meeting with officials at the provincial legislature. Source: BuaNews

VICTORIA, B.C. – The B.C. government’s proposals to rewrite tax laws for LNG developments are getting a thumbs down from environmental groups.Green Leader Andrew Weaver says amendments to tax laws introduced yesterday show the government’s hypocrisy because they lead the province away from its Clean-BC plan to reduce carbon pollution.Peter McCartney of the Wilderness Committee also criticized the legislation for not aligning with the Clean-BC plan. He says people are being asked to cut carbon pollution while the government is giving six-billion dollars in tax breaks and subsidies to construct the LNG facility.Finance Minister Carole James says the legislation will help attract LNG investment and protect the environment.Under the changes, the government would amend the Income Tax Act to implement a tax credit to eligible corporations for LNG development.The Business Council of British Columbia backed the government’s approach, saying the changes will allow the province to compete in LNG markets around the world.Surrey Board of Trade CEO Anita Huberman says the government’s tax changes will help bring more LNG investment to the province at a time when B-C continues to need oil and gas to fuel the economy.
