Tottenham fans were left breathing a sigh of relief ahead of the upcoming London derby against West Ham after England boss Gareth Southgate allayed injury concerns regarding Harry Kane.

Kane was expected to return to lead the Three Lions in Sunday’s high-profile Uefa Nations League fixture against Belgium, having been rested for Thursday’s 3-0 friendly victory over Wales at Wembley.

However, reports on Sunday morning suggested that the Spurs talisman was a major doubt for the match having picked up a muscle injury in training.

That inevitably provoked fears that Kane could miss Tottenham’s home Premier League clash against rivals West Ham on Sunday (October 18).

However, Kane was subsequently named on the bench for England against Belgium, with Southgate downplaying his issue as muscle fatigue and suggesting that he could play some part in the fixture if required.

Members of Catch-22 dragon boat team build fitness, community after breast cancer diagnosis

“You should try dragon boating.” That’s what Britten Witherspoon, 43, kept hearing from other members of her support group for young breast cancer survivors.

Witherspoon wanted to be active again, but even after months of physical therapy, she couldn’t do the pushups and other exercises she used to.

“Chemo was hard on my heart and lungs,” Witherspoon said. Surgeries to remove and reconstruct her breasts limited her range of motion.

With two kids, Witherspoon couldn’t see herself making the commute from her Camas home to Portland for practices with the dragon boat team there.

Then the Pink Lemonade Project, a Vancouver-based nonprofit supporting those affected by breast cancer, put her in touch with Catch-22, a Clark County dragon boat team. She joined right away — even though the coronavirus pandemic kept the team from climbing into a boat together to practice on Vancouver Lake this summer.

Tottenham fear Harry Kane will aggravate his thigh injury if England manager Gareth Southgate sticks with a plan to start his captain against Denmark.

Southgate will put himself on a collision course with Spurs boss Jose Mourinho if Kane suffers any ill-effects on Wednesday night. The England boss has already risked angering the Portuguese boss by introducing Kane for the final 25 minutes of the 2-1 win over Belgium on Sunday. 

Speaking after the match, Southgate tried to head off any controversy by insisting Kane was only suffering from muscle fatigue.

Meet the Hawaiian cleaner wrasse “the fish dentist”

Do you know that the fish here in Hawai‘i go to the dentist on a regular basis to have their teeth cleaned? From large sharks to young yellow tangs, they all get free dental work, but they must go to the dentist’s office. We call their office a “cleaning station,” and the dentist is a Hawaiian cleaner wrasse.

This small, colorful fish has a territory on the reef, and when it is ready for clients it darts above the reef back and forth, flashing its bright colors. Most divers have seen this fish due to its bright-yellow, blue and purple color, but few people actually know much about the cleaner wrasse. Sometimes there will be two to three cleaner wrasse above one coral outcropping and 10 to 15 much-larger fish waiting in line to have their teeth cleaned. When the larger fish want a cleaning, they remain still right above

Dentist who yanked patient’s tooth out while on hoverboard jailed

Sorry, this video isn’t available any more.

A rogue dentist who was filmed extracting a patient’s tooth while riding a hoverboard has been jailed for 12 years for dangerous dentistry.

Seth Lockhart shot to notoriety after he was filmed pulling the tooth from unconscious patient Veronica Wilhelm while riding the gadget, and was jailed in Anchorage, Alaska, on Monday for crimes including knocking patients out without receiving adequate training – or their consent.

Judge Michael Wolverton said: ‘Lookhart almost killed many patients by performing anesthesia thousands of times without training or consent, on patients outside his scope of training and expertise, while stealing money from Medicaid and embezzling from his bosses.’

Lockhart let his office manager Shauna Cranford – who was in on the fraud – extract a patient’s tooth despite her not having any dental training.

Pelosi unveils 25th Amendment bid, questions Trump’s fitness to serve after COVID diagnosis

WASHINGTON — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi unveiled legislation Friday that would allow Congress to intervene under the 25th Amendment to the Constitution to remove the president, insisting it’s not about President Donald Trump but inspired by the need for greater congressional oversight of his White House.

Pelosi has been raising questions about Trump’s mental fitness since his COVID-19 diagnosis and demanding more transparency about his health. The bill would set up a commission to assess the president’s ability to lead the country and ensure a continuity of government. It comes one year after Pelosi’s House launched impeachment proceedings against Trump.

“This is not about President Donald Trump — he will face the judgment of the voters,” Pelosi said at a press conference at the Capitol.

Just weeks before the Nov. 3 election, with no hopes of the bill becoming law, the rollout was quickly dismissed as a stunt by Trump’s

Hoverboard-riding dentist sentenced to 12 years for Medicaid fraud

An Anchorage dentist captured on video extracting a patient’s tooth as he rode a hoverboard was sentenced to 12 years for Medicaid fraud and other crimes.

Seth Lookhart’s antics “darn near killed some people,” Alaska Superior Court Judge Michael Wolverton said at sentencing Monday.

“And then, after that,” the judge said, “you bragged about it in your texts.”

The 2016 hoverboard stunt, which took place as Lookhart performed a tooth extraction on a sedated patient, preceded a wider probe of his practices.

Wolverton on Monday quoted that patient’s testimony from December: “What you did was outrageous, narcissistic and crazy,” Veronica Wilhelm told the court.

The 35-year-old dentist was convicted in January of more than 40 counts, including “unlawful dental acts,” reckless endangerment and Medicaid fraud.

Evidence presented at trial showed other patients were left unattended while sedated,

Special needs sports program brings fun and fitness back to community

COLLINGSWOOD, N.J. (WPVI) — “I think, sometimes, they don’t get as much credit as they deserve,” said Daniel Minko, surrounded by his personal favorite athletes.

They’re not the typical stars you may see on the big screen. Instead, they are a group of teens with special needs.

“Even before COVID, you know, there’s not a whole lot of fitness and sports that are out there for people with special needs,” Minko said.

That’s why he created Spectrum Sports alongside James Paoletti. Both are special needs teachers in South Jersey.

“This population really needs it. After school, we found out that they really didn’t have anything like this,” Paoletti said. “Dan and I wanted to fill that need.”

The program started four years ago, but was reimagined due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Minko and Paoletti now hold classes three days per week in public spaces such as Knight Park in Collingswood.
