Appeals court temporarily halts Dakota Access line shutdown

first_imgBISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A federal appeals court has temporarily halted a judge’s order that the Dakota Access Pipeline be shut down in three weeks. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on Tuesday issued an “administrative stay” of the judge’s order. But The Bismarck Tribune reports that the appeals court said its order “should not be construed in any way as a ruling on the merits” of the case. The stay will remain in place until the appeals court rules on whether developer Energy Transfer can keep oil flowing while the court decides its appeal of the shutdown order. The pipeline runs from North Dakota through South Dakota and across 350 miles of Iowa, ending up at a refinery in Illinois.last_img read more

Beal scores 30 as Wizards edge Heat in overtime

first_imgWade brought Miami within one with 12.9 seconds remaining after he lured Kelly Oubre into a foul on a 3-point attempt, then sank three free throws to make it 114-113.After Satoransky hit one of two foul shots, Wade got free in the lane but missed a floater following a pump fake. Kelly Olynyk’s follow also missed. Oubre hit a pair of free throws to seal it.“I was a little nervous with the D-Wade floater because it was a good move,” Beal said. “That was definitely a great look for him.”Miami led only once, but stayed close throughout the second half. Wade tied it for the third time with 22 seconds left in regulation, driving by Morris, absorbing Beal’s foul, hitting a leaning layup and then converting a three-point play to make it 105-all.TIP-INSHeat: G Wayne Ellington (thigh bruise) was out for a fourth consecutive game but worked out pregame. “We’re going to push him in this workout a little bit more and see how he responds tomorrow,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. … Wade scored in double digits in the second game of a back-to-back set for the first time since his Miami return.Wizards: F Otto Porter left the game with 8:29 remaining in regulation with a bruised hip after colliding with Wade trying to reach a loose ball. … Morris’ double-double was his first since Feb. 5.TYLER TOOMiami’s Tyler Johnson scored 21 points and played more than 38 minutes in his second game back from a thigh bruise.“It was great to see him out there being aggressive and playing with confidence,” Spoelstra said. “He certainly played at least 20 more minutes than I anticipated playing him.”WALL’S PROGRESSWizards coach Scott Brooks said Wall worked out on Monday afternoon.“He actually moved around more than light shooting,” Brooks said. “Moved around pretty good. Not a lot of reps, but got a good sweat, a good workout. That’s another step in the progress of his return.”QUOTABLE “This Bradley Beal right here is the Bradley Beal that, from afar, that you always thought he was going to be,” said Wade, who scored 22 points. “And this time without John Wall has really helped him grow, from a leader standpoint but also as a player. He’s seeing the game differently having the ball so much.”With Wall still sidelined following knee surgery, Beal went 6 of 7 from beyond the arc as Washington finished 14 for 24 there in its best 3-point shooting performance of the season.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutThat helped end a three-game losing streak, in which the Beal had shot just 19 of 61 (31.1 percent) from the floor. By snapping the skid, the Wizards remained fifth in the Eastern Conference, a half-game behind Indiana and one ahead of Philadelphia.“We needed the win,” Beal said. “It was just plain and simple. We were going to do whatever it took to get the win.” “There’s something so special and different when Dwyane Wade puts on that Miami Heat jersey. It transcends sport. And the impact reverberates all throughout South Florida. There’s only a few players who have that type of impact.” – Spoelstra.

(AP Photo/Alex Brandon)WASHINGTON — It’s safe to say Bradley Beal has Dwyane Wade’s attention.Beal scored 30 points on 12-of-16 shooting in his 17th straight game without backcourt mate John Wall, helping the Washington Wizards to a 117-113 overtime victory over Wade’s Miami Heat on Tuesday night.ADVERTISEMENT Wade almost provided his own heroics, missing a game-tying jumper in the lane with 4.1 seconds remaining after converting a three-point play to force overtime.The loss dropped Miami into eighth, a half-game behind seventh-place Milwaukee.Now 36, Wade continues to look reinvigorated since returning to Miami in a trade from Cleveland last month. The 12-time All-Star and three-time NBA champion has scored 20 or more points in three of the Heat’s last five games, and Tuesday was their go-to guard down the stretch.“Everything goes out the window at the end of games,” Wade said. “It’s like a mechanism where you just lock in.”Tomas Satoransky added 19 points and Markieff Morris had 16 points and 13 rebounds for Washington. Morris’ baseline 3-pointer off Beal’s feed made it 113-109 with 1:06 left in overtime.ADVERTISEMENT Google honors food scientist, banana ketchup inventor and war hero Maria Orosa Nowitzki, Mavs hand Nuggets damaging loss in tight West race LOOK: Iya Villania meets ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ cast in Mexico LATEST STORIES Families in US enclave in north Mexico hold sad Thanksgiving Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMCcenter_img Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university PLAY LIST 01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City Pussycat Dolls set for reunion tour after 10-year hiatus MOST READ John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding Read Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
