Children’s Wheelchair Basketball League Officially Open in Fort Lauderdale

The Fort Lauderdale Junior Sharks Wheelchair Basketball League is officially underway and have started practicing.

Davie, United States - January 13, 2018 /PressCable/ —

Dynamic Orthopedic and Memorial Adaptive Sports & Recreation have recently teamed up to to help bring the excitement and joy of wheelchair basketball to kids who are dealing with severe disabilities.

The amazing prosthetics and orthotics treatment of Dynamic Orthopedics has become well known in the South Florida region. This league starts a new path of not only helping treat these children but also to greatly help enrich their lives by participating in active, competitive sports.

The Junior Wheelchair Basketball league’s official name is the Fort Lauderdale Junior Sharks. Their first practice of 2018 was on January 7th. They will be practicing bi-weekly from 4:00pm-6:00pm at Carter Park off of Sunrise Blvd. The age for the kids participating is between ages 5-13.

Playing competitive sports will greatly help these children who are dealing with an enormous difficulty in life to gain confidence. The reaction and feedback from the children thus far has been exceedingly positive and encouraging.

Dynamic Orthopedics’ owner Melisa Chang had this to say, “You can feel the overwhelming amount of positive energy when watching these kids enjoy the sport of basketball. So far we are only beginning practices. This is a work in progress to gain more participation, build numbers of participants and help these kids learn the game. Some have never played before. We are teaching them how to be competitive, how to maneuver the wheelchair and bounce a ball, increasing their endurance, their aim and their strength.”

The children are also very fortunate to have a coach with an intimate understanding of their life situation who has played wheelchair basketball himself. Melisa Chang said, “Coach Luis Amaro is doing a great job working with them. He has an understanding of what it takes to play wheelchair basketball at a competitive level. He himself uses a wheelchair.”

Ending austerity in UK 'incompatible' with budget plan

Oct 16, 2018

LONDON — The British government will have to spend an extra 19 billion pounds ($25 billion) a year on public services by the year 2022-23 if it's to deliver on Prime Minister Theresa May's promise to end austerity, a well-respected think-tank said Tuesday. In an analysis of Britain's public finances, the Institute for Fiscal Studies said May's ambition looks incompatible with another major aspiration — to balance the books by the mid-2020s — without substantial tax rises or much stronger economic growth. "This is going to be the toughest of circles to square," said Paul Johnson, the IFS's director. Given...

Tottenham opposes selling temporary Wembley home to Khan

Oct 16, 2018

LONDON — The chairman of Tottenham opposes the Premier League club's temporary home of Wembley Stadium being sold to a rival for both soccer and NFL. With building work on its own new stadium in London overrunning by several months, Tottenham has been rescued by the English Football Association by being granted longer use of Wembley for its matches than originally agreed. When Tottenham's new venue is eventually completed, it will be hosting at least two NFL matches per season under a 10-year deal in competition with Wembley and its prospective new owner. Shad Khan, who owns the Jacksonville Jaguars...

Irish border issued entangled with questions of identity

Oct 16, 2018

CARRICKCARNAN, Ireland — The land around the small Irish town of Carrickcarnan is the kind of place where Britain's plan to leave the European Union runs right into a wall — an invisible one that's proving inordinately difficult to overcome. Somehow, a border of sorts will have to be drawn between Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom, and EU member Ireland to allow customs control over goods, produce and livestock once the U.K. has fully left the bloc. That means the largely unpoliced and invisible Irish land border will become the boundary between the EU and the...

Fracking begins in UK for first time since 2011

Oct 16, 2018

LONDON — Protesters have gathered near a shale gas exploration site in northwestern England, as fracking began in the U.K. for the first time since 2011. Hydraulic fracturing had been stalled in the country after two earthquakes in the same area led to legal challenges. Environmental campaigners failed last week in Britain's High Court to keep the work in Lancashire from proceeding. Energy firm Cuadrilla said in a statement Monday that it was "pleased to confirm that it has started hydraulic fracturing operations at our Preston New Road shale gas exploration site." The company plans to drill at two horizontal...
