WASHINGTON , Jan. 23 (Xinhua) -- The Charlotte Hornets bossMichael Jordan said on Tuesday that he would listen to offers forpoint guard and one-time All-Star Kemba Walker, but any deal wouldneed to net a player with equal credentials.
""We bred him, we chose him , we groomed him to be a good playerfor us,"" Jordan was quoted by to the Charlotte Observer onTuesday.
""It's not like we are shopping him. We would not just give himup. I love Kemba Walker. I would not trade him for anything but anAll-Star player,"" Jordan said of Walker , who the Hornets draftedninth overall in 2011, to a great extent because Jordan saw traitsin Walker that reminded him of his own playing career.
""I certainly haven't given up on our best player. He's done ahell of a job of turning himself into an All-Star,"" Jordansaid.
Walker has played his entire six-year career with the Hornets ,dating back to when they were formerly known as the CharlotteBobcats. He steadily improved multiple aspects of his game untilthis season. Unfortunately injuries have derailed the progress ofseveral teammates, forcing Walker to face constant defensiveattention that has in turn diminished his production andefficiency. Walker is currently averaging 21.7 points, 5.8 assistsand 1.2 steals per contest.
The Hornets are 19-26 and four games out of the final playoffberth in the Eastern Conference. Walker is the franchise's onlydrafted player to become an All-Star since Baron Davis received thehonor in 2002.
""I'm telling you I believe in my team ,"" Jordan added. ""I'mdisappointed in our record and I'm frustrated at times. But I'mtelling you I like everything about Kemba's work. I'm not justgoing to throw him away.""
NAIROBI， March 3 (Xinhua) -- World half marathon record holder Peres Jepchirchir and Leonard Patrick Komon of Kenya will lead a world-class field at the Prague Half Marathon on April 1.
Komon， who is currently eyeing a medal at the World Cross Country Championships in Kampala， Uganda on March 26， wants to turn to full marathon and will be in the Czech Republic capital to test his fitness after a series of injuries. The Prague half marathon is an IAAF Gold Label Road Race.
"I have to focus first on cross country and then the road race. World cross country is good for endurance and then that is what I will be seeking in Prague， to push my body to the limit. Thereafter， the full marathon will be the next goal.
"I have been facing setbacks with injuries tormenting me. But I have been able to train for three months without any problem now and I hope to do well in Prague，" said Komon， Friday in Embu， where he is in training camp with the Kenya cross country team.
Alongside the two， the organisers have also called in two Rio Olympic medalists in Galen Rupp (USA) and Tamirat Tola (Ethiopia) to spice up the race.
The women's race features world half marathon champion Peres Jepchirchir， fresh from her 1:05:06 half marathon world record performance last month in Dubai.
She will be challenged by the Prague event record-holder Violah Jepchumba， whose 1:05:51 clocking in the Czech capital last year was the fastest half marathon performance of 2016.
The race will include three other women who have run faster than 1:07:00. They are Joyciline Jepkosgei， who ran 1:06:08 in Ras al-Khaimah last month， former race record-holder Worknesh Degefa of Ethiopia， and Kenya's African Games 10，000m silver medallist Gladys Chesir.
U.S. duo Jordan Hasay and Maegan Krifchin are also in the field， along with Eva Vrabcova of the Czech Republic.
The men's field is also graced with a world record-holder. Komon， who holds world records at 10km and 15km， will be trying to improve on his third-place finish in Prague from 2015.
The biggest threat may come from another Kenyan， Barselius Kipyego who set a course record of 59:15 in Czech Republic's town of Usti nad Labem last September on what had not previously been considered a fast course.
Olympic bronze medallist Galen Rupp and Tamirat Tola are also in the field. Tola finished third in the 10，000m at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and looks to be in top condition this year after running 2:04:11 to win in the Dubai Marathon in January.
Rupp， who finished third in the marathon in Rio， is aiming for a fast performance at the Boston Marathon this year and could challenge the North American record in Prague.
Czech Republic's Jiri Homolac， who is currently training in Iten， Kenya， is hoping to run faster than 1:03:00.
When a bro’s game plan is to impress a particular woman, the last thing he wants is to battle the obstacle of an uncontrollably itchy member. Not only is a woman likely to interpret even a subtle scratching of the equipment as an indication of questionable male organ health, she’s also likely to think that the guy has no self-control. And when an itchy member is caused by scabies , she’s right on both counts. Scabies is a definite male organ health issue, and the itching it causes is so intense that no dude can be expected to refrain from scratching it forever.
So what can a guy do about scabies? And how does he even know if he has them?
Don’t think that a guy can determine he has scabies simply by pulling back the pubic hair and taking a good look at his manhood. That’s because the cause of scabies – a little mite called Sarcoptes scabiei – is too small to be seen with the eye.
These mites live on the skin, but when it comes time to lay their eggs , they burrow under the skin. That’s what generally causes the really itchy rash to appear.
So a guy can’t see scabies, but that uncontrollable itch is a good sign that they are there. And the itchiness itself is not the only problem. If a guy gi.
