Toronto FC and the Vancouver Whitecaps, who opened the MLS season missing some big names, could get limited reinforcements for their meeting Saturday in Orlando. But while the Whitecaps will be looking for more of the same following their season-opening 1-0 win over Portland, Toronto is hoping to get back on track after a disappointing 4-2 loss to CF Montreal. Toronto coach Chris Armas, who said Saturday that TFC "just finished second all day long," was more sanguine about his team in the aftermath of the loss in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., where Montreal has set up shop during the pandemic. "Really just a back-to-work mentality," he said. "Cleaning up and clarifying little details, just so we can keep every day taking small steps together." Vancouver coach Marc Dos Santos, meanwhile, said while his team did a lot of things well, improvements can be made. "We don't get too high with these moments," he said. "We won a game, we won an important game against Portland, a game that we wanted to win. But then we have to forget it quickly and start thinking about Toronto." Dos Santos clearly does not believe Toronto's lacklustre performance against Montreal was representative, saying he had also taken note of TFC's win over Mexico's Club Leon in Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League play. "We live in a sport (where) people forget really fast. You're good today, you're bad tomorrow. It's a roller-coaster," he said. He expects Toronto to make the necessary adjustments. "I'm sure it's not going to be the same team," he said. Both teams are dealing with injuries and other roster issues. Toronto remains without two key players in Spanish playmaker Alejandro Pozuelo (thigh) and French centre back Chris Mavinga (calf). Defender Julian Dunn (hip), midfielders Liam Fraser (ankle), winger Erickson Gallardo (groin) and forward Ifunanyachi Achara (knee) are also out. Midfielder Jonathan Osorio (thigh) and star striker Jozy Altidore (thigh) are listed as questionable, although Armas said Thursday that both had been participating in training. Vancouver will be without defender Erik Godoy (calf), midfielder Leonard Owusu (hamstring) and striker Tosaint Ricketts (hamstring). Centre back Derek Cornelius (knee) has been upgraded to probable after resuming training. Portuguese-born Angola international fullback Bruno Gaspar and Brazilian midfielder Caio Alexandre are both training after finishing quarantine April 16 and 18, respectively. Dos Santos said while the two newcomers initially had problems adjusting to the altitude in Utah, they were looking better in training. "We have to be careful with the process," said Dos Santos. "When you want to speed up players too fast, then an injury could occur. And instead of being patient one more week, you lose them for months. We don't want to do that. "But do we think there's a possibility of them travelling to Orlando this weekend? Yes. But with a lot of communication and with work with our performance team, we'll know exactly when's the right time to to have them in." Iraqi fullback Ali Adnan, a designated player, remains north of the border due to visa issues. "It's totally out of our control, it's a government thing," said Dos Santos. The Whitecaps are prepared for Toronto's aggressive style of play under Armas, a former coach with the hard-pressing New York Red Bulls. "I see a lot of the Red Bulls, a lot. I see a lot of the ideas that Chris learned at the Red Bulls. He's trying to implement it in Toronto … It's very clear what he wants to do there," Dos Santos said. "There's no doubt in my head what type of team we're going to face." The Vancouver coach is also aware of the heat and humidity that awaits in central Florida, where the forecast calls for 30 degrees Celsius for the 3 p.m. ET kickoff. "You can't recreate the humidity here in Salt Lake," said Dos Santos. "You can't build a soccer field inside a sauna." Being able to use five substitutions in the game will be key, he added. The match ostensibly is a home game for Toronto, which has made Orlando its pandemic home this season. Vancouver is based out of Sandy, Utah, home to Real Salt Lake. Toronto, which finished last season playing out of East Hartford, Conn., starts anew with its 'home opener at Exploria Stadium, where Orlando City SC plays. Goalkeeper Alex Bono praised club staff for doing their best "to make it as normal as possible." "But the reality of it is large parts of it will not feel normal," Bono said. "I've been to six TFC home openers in my time here and this is by far the furthest from normality. "But listen, it's a new season, it's a new home opener, however you want to put it. But we've done this away from home before, so yes it's special because it's a quote-unquote home opener. However, it's just another game for us in this new normality that we've had to deal with for coming on almost a year now, playing away from home. "It's different, it's difficult but at the end of the day, it's another game. And whether it's home or away, one thing about this group is that we're learning to just take it as a game. Until we're fortunate enough to come back and play in our home city in front of our home fans." VANCOUVER WHITECAPS (1-0-0) at TORONTO FC (0-1-0) Saturday, Orlando's Exploria Stadium. YOUNG GUN: In last week's 4-2 loss to CF Montreal, Toronto midfielder Jahkeele Marshall-Rutty — at 16 years 305 days — became the seventh-youngest player to record an MLS assist. The record-holder is Freddy Adu, at 14 years 355 days (No. 6 on the list is Alphonso Davies, 16 years, 294 days). LAST SEASON: TFC won two of the three meetings, with 3-0 and 1-0 decisions at BMO Field. Vancouver won 3-2 at B.C. Place Stadium. --- Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 23, 2021 Neil Davidson, The Canadian Press

Investment firm Starwood Energy Group on Friday proposed spending $8 billion to build 11 natural-gas fired power plants in Texas, the company said, a plan that would compete with a similar proposal from Berkshire Hathaway Inc . Starwood, in a letter to the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT), said its proposal would help solve reliability problems that came to a head after nearly half the state's power generation was knocked out during a February freeze. Starwood proposed building new natural-gas fired power plants generating a total of 11 gigawatts, enough to power 2.2 million Texas homes on a hot summer day, according to a Reuters analysis.

Dominic Cummings has said he told Boris Johnson that his plan to drop a official inquiry into the so-called “chatty rat” leaks from Downing Street was “mad” and “unethical”. In a strongly-worded statement, the former senior adviser denied being behind last year’s leak on the timing of the second coronavirus lockdown or the recent unauthorised release of text messages between the prime minister and inventor James Dyson. Accusing Mr Johnson of authorising members of his team to brand him the leaker - despite knowing it to be untrue - Mr Cummings said: “It is sad to see the PM and his office fall so far below the standards of competence and integrity the country deserves.”

WASHINGTON — When police respond to a person gripped by a mental health or drug crisis, the encounter can have tragic results. Now a government insurance program will help communities set up an alternative: mobile teams with mental health practitioners trained in de-escalating such potentially volatile situations. The effort to reinvent policing after the death of George Floyd in police custody is getting an assist through Medicaid, the federal-state health insurance program for low-income people and the largest payer for mental health treatment. President Joe Biden's recent coronavirus relief bill calls for an estimated $1 billion over 10 years for states that set up mobile crisis teams, currently locally operated in a handful of places. Many 911 calls are due to a person experiencing a mental health or substance abuse crisis. Sometimes, like with Daniel Prude in Rochester, New York, the consequences are shocking. The 41-year-old Black man died after police placed a spit hood over his head and held him to the pavement for about two minutes on a cold night in 2020 until he stopped breathing. He had run naked from his brother’s house after being released from a hospital following a mental health arrest. A grand jury voted down charges against the officers. Dispatching teams of emergency medical technicians and behavioural health practitioners would take mental health crisis calls out of the hands of uniformed and armed officers, whose mere arrival may ratchet up tensions. In Eugene, Oregon, such a strategy has been in place more than 30 years, with solid backing from police. The concept “fits nicely with what we are trying to do around police reform,” Eugene Police Chief Chris Skinner said. The logic works “like a simple math problem,” he adds. “If I can rely on a mechanism that matches the right response to the need, it means I don't have to put my officers in these circumstances,” Skinner explained. “By sending the right resources I can make the assumption that there are going to be fewer times when officers are in situations that can turn violent. It actually de-conflicts, reducing the need for use of force.” Eugene is a medium-size city about 100 miles (160 kilometres) south of Portland, known for its educational institutions. The program there is called Crisis Assistance Helping Out On The Streets, or CAHOOTS, and is run by the White Bird Clinic. CAHOOTS is part of the local 911 emergency response system but operates independently of the police, although there's co-ordination. Crisis teams are not sent on calls involving violent situations. “We don't look like law enforcement,” White Bird veteran Tim Black said. “We drive a big white cargo van. Our responders wear a T-shirt or a hoodie with a logo. We don’t have handcuffs or pepper spray, and the way we start to interact sends a message that we are not the police and this is going to be a far safer and voluntary interaction.” CAHOOTS teams handled 24,000 calls in the local area in 2019, and Black said the vast majority would have otherwise fallen to police. Many involve homeless people. The teams work to resolve the situation that prompted the call and to connect the person involved to ongoing help and support. At least 14 cities around the country are interested in versions of that model, said Simone Brody, executive director of What Works Cities, a New York-based non-profit that tries to promote change through effective use of data. “It's really exciting to see the federal government support this model,” Brody said. “I am hopeful that three years from now we will have multiple models and ideally some data that shows this has actually saved people's lives.” About 1,000 people a year are shot dead by police, according to an analysis by the Treatment Advocacy Center, which examined several publicly available estimates. Severe mental illness is a factor in at least 25% of such shootings, it estimated. The centre advocates for improved mental health care. Mobile crisis teams found their way into the COVID-19 relief bill through the efforts of Oregon Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden, who chairs the Finance Committee, which oversees Medicaid. “Too often law enforcement is asked to respond to situations that they are not trained to handle,” Wyden said. “On the streets in challenging times, too often the result is violence, even fatal violence, particularly for Black Americans.” Wyden's legislation includes $15 million in planning grants to help states get going. The Congressional Budget Office estimates the program could take a couple of years to fully implement. Wyden said the $1 billion is a “down payment” on what he hopes will become a permanent part of Medicaid. The idea may be well-timed, said Medicaid expert MaryBeth Musumeci, of the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. The coronavirus pandemic has worsened society's pervasive mental health and substance abuse problems. At the same time, protests over police shootings of Black people have created an appetite for anything that could break the cycle. “All of those things coming together are putting increased focus on the need for further developing effective behavioural health treatment models,” Musumeci said. In Rhode Island, nurse turned malpractice lawyer Laura Harrington is helping co-ordinate a grassroots campaign to incorporate crisis teams into the state's 911 system. She said she's been surprised at the level of interest. “I don't want to get into blaming,” Harrington said. “We could blame social services. We could blame people who don't take their medications. We could blame the police. I want to move forward and solve problems." ___ AP writer Michael R. Sisak in New York contributed. Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar, The Associated Press
