Loan sharks cruising poorest areas – report

first_imgStuff.co.nz 16 Feb 2012Low-income families’ struggles with debt are not due simply to bad decisions – they are often victims of an environment filled with exploitative lenders, a report says. The Families Commission report confirms that areas of high deprivation often have a high presence of alcohol shops, finance companies, fringe lenders, mobile truck shops, pokies and door-to-door sales. Some credit agencies appear to target families who can least afford it, the report says. The findings were backed yesterday by Mangere Budgeting Services Trust chief executive Darryl Evans, who said: “We’ve got everybody here, the loan sharks, the mobile trucks, the liquor truck, money lenders operating out of garages. They literally are operating out the back of $2 shops.”http://www.stuff.co.nz/business/money/6426292/Loan-sharks-cruising-poorest-areas-reportlast_img read more

The Blackhawks travel to Edmonton on Sunday, and Game 1 of their best-of-five series against the Oilers is Aug. 1.Crawford had been absent since the Blackhawks started training camp in the NHL’s return after the season was suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic. Coach Jeremy Colliton stuck closely to the league’s approved language for discussing missing players while Crawford was out, declaring his top goaltender was “unfit to play.”Crawford missed parts of the previous two seasons because of concussions. But he had been playing well when the league was shut down, recording a .930 save percentage in his last 17 games.The return of the 35-year-old Crawford is a big development for Chicago as it prepares for Edmonton and its high-scoring duo of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl.

DROP THE PUCK: UW ready for RIT

first_imgSenior forward Aaron Bendickson and the Wisconsin men\’s hockey team is set to face off with the RIT Tigers in Thursday\’s semifinal game in Detroit. UW has had 11 days off since its last game.[/media-credit]Wisconsin is tired of talking about its Frozen Four matchup with the Rochester Institute of Technology.They have had an extra week to think about it, an extra week to practice for it and now the Badgers want nothing more than to see the puck finally drop in Ford Field.“I’m real anxious to get going. You can only talk about it so much, and all we’ve been able to do is talk about these games,” senior tri-captain Ben Street said. “We just want to get out there and get it started.”After playing through a demanding, pressure-packed postseason schedule, where the Badgers played in the WCHA Final Five and the NCAA West regional, UW and the other three Frozen Four teams have had a rare extended period without game action.Street, who will be playing in his second Frozen Four after helping to win a national championship in 2006, had trouble keeping busy with so much time between games.“It’s been boring. We have all this time off, and I don’t even know what to do with myself,” Street said. “I mean there has been a lot going on in the sports world. Opening Day of baseball, college basketball wrapping up, it seems like everyone else is doing a bunch of stuff, and we are just practicing.”It is fair to say senior forward Aaron Bendickson is tired of waiting as well.“It sucks to have to wait this long,” Bendickson said. “Everyone is just really jacked to play.”Tonight, the wait is over and the Badgers are set to take on the RIT this afternoon.According to Bendickson, anticipation for the Frozen Four created tremendous energy that was put to good use in practice.“Practice has been really competitive,” he said. “You can tell people are hungry to play because everyone is just going after it really hard.”UW hopes the rigorous practice sessions have helped it prepare for the intensity the Badgers will face in Detroit. As a No. 4 seed in the NCAA tournament, the energized RIT squad has emerged as the tournament’s Cinderella story.The Tigers shocked Denver, the WCHA regular season champion, in the opening round and proceeded to take down Hockey East regular season champ New Hampshire in the East regional final. Now, the former Division II and Division III national champions are headed to Detroit looking for another title.RIT may have snuck up on opponents in the early rounds of the tournament, but UW head coach Mike Eaves knows full well the upset-minded Tigers will come out with a lot of energy and present a difficult challenge for the Badgers.“They are going to get after it. They are going to finish every check,” Eaves said. “And they may be as good as any team I’ve seen in the defensive zone.”The Badgers are one of the top scoring teams in the nation, but Eaves and the Badgers know RIT will attempt to play a tight defensive game to keep scoring chances limited.That strategy has worked particularly well for the Tigers due to the performance of goaltender Jared DeMichiel. The senior has been red-hot between the pipes for RIT, allowing only three goals in two NCAA tournament games, and his play has spearheaded the Tigers’ NCAA tournament run.UW junior goaltender Scott Gudmandson has played pretty well in his own right, making crucial saves in the Badgers’ tight wins over Vermont and St. Cloud State.With his counterpart playing with such confidence, Gudmandson hopes to see lot of the commotion and activity in front of the other net as the Badgers plan on testing DeMichiel early and often.“They are real good defensively so we need to work them down low and get a lot of traffic in front of that goalie,” Gudmandson said.The Badgers know the game plan, and they’ve waited long enough to execute it.Now after all the preparation, they are ready to continue their pursuit of a national championship.“It’s so exciting,” Gudmandson said. “We can’t wait to get out on that ice.”last_img read more

Women’s hockey: No. 2 Badgers roll St. Cloud State, focus on No. 6 Bemidji State

first_imgThe Wisconsin women’s hockey team bested St. Cloud State in both Friday and Saturday’s meetings last weekend, sweeping the series.The No. 2 Badgers (6-0-0, 4-0-0 WCHA) remain perfect in the season as they tallied two more wins on their record, elevating them to a total of six wins and zero losses.Sophomore Annie Pankowski has scored in every game this season. The Badgers are out-scoring opponents 35-2 on the year.But the most pleasant surprise this season has been UW’s stellar defense throughout their almost-perfect start, having only allowed two goals the entire year. At his weekly news conference Monday, head coach Mark Johnson said the returning pieces to his defensive scheme and the team’s overall attitude has led to the unit’s success.“Keeping the puck out of our net is certainly something we are going to be confident in,” Johnson said.Johnson is still skeptical of the idea that these near-flawless numbers would continue to be so strong as the season progressed, especially against UW’s next opponent in No. 6 Bemidji State (6-0-2, 3-0-1).“In the next month we will get to know more about our team,” Johnson said. “And it [playing Bemidji State] will certainly be the biggest test we have up to this point in our season.”Johnson said if the team is going to get better, they need to follow a system.“It’s a process of everyday — you have to come to practice, and you have to give it your best and practice hard,” Johnson said. “And then on the weekends, it’s like a test.”A true “test” awaits the Badgers this weekend, as they prepare for this Top 10 matchup. Puck-drop is at 7 p.m. Friday night and 3 p.m. Saturday at LaBahn Arena.last_img read more

Clayton Kershaw pitches six scoreless innings as Dodgers beat Padres

first_img Whicker: Dustin May yet another example of the Dodgers’ eye for pitching “Tolesy being Tolesy,” first baseman Cody Bellinger said. “All he does is hit.”“With Andrew, I don’t know if it really matters where he plays, as far as what level,” Roberts said. “He plays at a certain speed and doesn’t overthink things. Him being here I thought brought a lot of energy.”Turner and Bellinger each had three hits, Yasmani Grandal and Chris Taylor two as the Dodgers outhit the sagging Padres 14-5.The Padres returned home Sunday after playing 23 of their previous 28 games on the road, capped by a 16-inning game in Arizona.

(AP Photo/Gregory Bull)ExpandSAN DIEGO — Maybe all it took for Clayton Kershaw to look more like himself was to have A.J. Ellis 60 feet, 6 inches away again – and the San Diego Padres in the opposing dugout.Kershaw turned in his best performance since back-to-back trips to the DL, pitching six scoreless innings and allowing just two hits as the Dodgers beat the Padres 8-2 on Monday night at Petco Park.Kershaw is now 10-0 with an 0.89 ERA in his past 13 starts against the Padres.“It was a good day,” Kershaw said. “It was definitely a step in the right direction. They were maybe a little more patient than we anticipated. That got my pitch count up there a little bit early. But, for the most part, I made pitches when I needed to.” The degree of difficulty has admittedly been low – three of the four teams Kershaw has faced since returning from his latest back injury (the Pirates, Mets and Padres) are among the National League’s worst. But he has a 2.25 ERA and 0.85 WHIP since returning (without a rehab start) while holding batters to a .205 average with 17 strikeouts in 20 innings while, as Dodgers manager Dave Roberts put it, adjusting the way he is attacking hitters.Through 12 starts this season, Kershaw is throwing his fastball a career-low 42 percent of the time (with a career-low velocity), relying more on his curveball and, particularly, his slider.“It was really good,” Roberts said of the outing. “He was in rhythm, in sync with his delivery. I thought this was the best I’ve seen him with his slider. I thought the fastball command was good. He wasn’t really stressed too much.”Nothing seems to stress Andrew Toles. He hadn’t played a big-league game in almost 14 months before Monday but said he was “just happy to be here” and was “not going to harp on the wait (to get back) or anything.”Nonetheless, he did point out that his Dodge Challenger remains parked in the players’ lot at Dodger Stadium since this spring and is now covered in “spider webs and dust” as teammates have pointed out, sending him photos.“That thing looks gross,” Toles said.Returning from a torn ACL that ended his 2017 season in May and a hamstring injury that put a two-month hole in his 2018 season, Toles helped spark the Dodgers’ offense with two hits, including a two-run double during a five-run fourth inning. He scored a run that inning, beating the throw home from third despite the infield playing in, and again on a two-run single by Justin Turner in the eighth.Related Articles Dodgers bench slumping Cody Bellinger for a day Dodgers’ hot-hitting Corey Seager leaves game with back injury center_img Dodgers’ Justin Turner looking rejuvenated on defense Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers’ Dave Roberts says baseball’s unwritten rules ‘have changed, should change’ With the outing, Kershaw passed the 2,000-inning mark in his career, becoming the 13th pitcher in Dodgers history to reach that milestone (and the 11th active pitcher in the majors to get there).Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter.

Hopefully, I have a few left.”No one has caught more of those innings than Ellis (829) who now serves as the Padres’ backup catcher. Ellis faced Kershaw as a combatant at the plate for the first time in Kershaw’s 2,001st inning and went 0 for 2 against his close friend and former batterymate.“That was miserable,” Kershaw said. “I’ve faced a lot of ex-teammates and friends in this game. But probably nobody that I have the history I have with A.J. We both kind of decided that, hopefully, that was the last time we have to do that.”In his previous start, Kershaw managed just two strikeouts – both of the opposing pitcher. Facing the team that has struck out more often than any in MLB this year, he had five strikeouts – and gave up his only hit in the first five innings to the opposing pitcher.last_img read more
