Jamison and Stoudemire named Players of the Week

Antawn Jamison, a power forward for the Washington Wizards, and Amare Stoudemire, a power forward/center player for the NBA's Phoenix Suns, were named the Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week (March 10-16).

In the 2004–05 season with the Wizards, he was named to the NBA All-Star team for the first time in his career and the Wizards enjoyed a solid 45–37 win-loss season, their finest effort in 26 years. They also made the playoffs for the first time since 1997 and advanced to the second round for the first time since 1982.

He played for the US national team in the 2006 FIBA World Championship, winning a bronze medal. In January 2008, Jamison was again selected to play on the NBA Eastern All-Star team.

Stoudemire made his 2nd NBA All Star appearance on February 18th 2007. He scored 29 points and grabbed 9 rebounds coming only second to MVP Kobe Bryant for the award. The appearance marked the official fulfillment of his vow to make the All Star Game in his first season back from the difficult year of recovery he endured during the 2 knee surgeries.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?

Venezuela may expect another Panama scenario from 1989
