Pacers and George Hill got it done.It is one thing to lose at home to the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference semifinals. It’s another thing to lose with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade failing in the waning moments.But that’s exactly what happened. And the Indiana Pacers were the benefactors with a 78-75 victory that tied the series at 1-1.James, who had 28 points, nine rebounds and five assists, missed two foul shots with 54.3 seconds left and Miami down by a point. He had missed another free throw earlier. And with 16 seconds to go and the Pacers in front by two, Wade missed a driving layup.And finally, down by three in the last seconds of the game, neither Wade nor James took the last shot. It was a contested bomb by Mario Chalmers that clanked off the rim that sealed Indiana’s triumph that secured it the home court advantage.Forward David West led the way with 16 points and 10 rebounds and guard George Hill added 15.Playing without injured forward Chris Bosh (abdominal strain), who is out for the series, the Heat received little help from anyone other than James and Wade. No other Miami player scored more than five points.The Heat have until Thursday’s Game 3 in Indianapolis to figure it out.
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppUnited States, April 12, 2017 – Washington, DC – Spending Better to Achieve More, the World Bank said this region can improve infrastructure by making better assessments and prioritising spending efficiency. According to the report, in Latin America & the Caribbean an average of three per cent of the GDP is spent on infrastructure while many countries spend more than four per cent. Comparatively, the percentage of GDP spent on infrastructure in the East Asia/Pacific region is 7.7. The causes of inefficient infrastructure investments, as cited in the report, include lack of institutional planning capacity, budgeting and implementation issues, inefficient procurement processes, and regulatory uncertainty. The report also said that adequate pricing for infrastructure services can also help increase efficiency. The report said that sanitation and transport were two key areas where this region lagged behind other middle-income regions and said there was potential focus areas for infrastructure improvements.

Jorge Sanhueza-Lyon / KUTAmong the costs of Hurricane Harvey are lost jobs.Early projections say Hurricane Harvey will end up costing $190 billion. Damages, disruption to businesses and increased gas prices all contribute to this. Another factor: lost jobs due to the storm.Lisa Givens, a spokesperson for the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC), tells News 88.7 about 125,000 people in Texas have applied for Disaster Unemployment Assistance since Harvey hit.Givens says not all of those claims will be paid, as they’re still processing eligibility requirements. “As we move through the recovery process, we’re certainly looking to place people in employment,” Givens said. “We are anecdotally hearing many times these claims are for temporary situations of unemployment. But we just won’t know until the long term plays out.”More federal money is on the way to help with the situation. The Department of Labor has awarded a $30 million grant to the workforce commission to fund temporary jobs to aid cleanup, demolition and other Harvey recovery efforts. The commission is working with workforce development offices called Workforce Solutions to determine needs.“The Workforce Solutions offices can determine by looking at individual skills and assessing their skill level, they’ll be able to appropriately place them in employment that fits their needs, as well as the employers’ demands,” Givens said.Grants like these have been awarded to TWC in the past. An estimated $88 million in federal grant money was allocated to help after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. A $13 million grant was awarded specifically for dislocated workers after the downturn of the gas and oil industry.Pre-Harvey, the Texas workforce was ticking up, adding 5,500 jobs in August. And annual employment growth for Texas was at 2.5 percent, which was more than double the annual growth rate set the previous year.
