Almanzora (river)

The Almanzora River (Spanish: Río Almanzora) is a river in the province of Almería in Andalusia, Spain.

The Almanzora river rises on the northern slope of the Sierra de Los Filabres on the border between the provinces of Granada and Almeria. It passes through the cities of Seron, Tíjola, Purchena Cantoria, Albox, Arboleas and Zurgena, and passes near the town of Huercal Overa, through the town of Cuevas del Almanzora before emptying into the Mediterranean Sea in Punta del Rio, between Palomares and Villaricos, after a journey of 90 kilometres (56 mi).

Sometimes it becomes swollen as in September 2012. A previous flood occurred in October 1973.

The Almanzora basin is bounded to the south by the Sierra de los Filabres, which rises to 2,168 metres (7,113 ft). Other highlights are the Tetica Bacares at 2,080 metres (6,820 ft) and Dos Picos at 2,086 metres (6,844 ft). To the south, neighboring watersheds are those of Andarax River (via the Nacimiento River and the Rambla de Tabernas ), the Rio de Aguas and Antas river.

To the west and north, it is bounded by the Sierra de las Estancias, which includes the Sierra de Lúcar at 1,722 metres (5,650 ft), the Sierra del Madroñal at 1,350 metres (4,430 ft), the Sierra de Oria at 1,500 metres (4,900 ft) and the Sierra del Saliente at 1,450 metres (4,760 ft). To the west, adjoining watersheds is that of the Guadalquivir (via the Rio de Baza and rio Guardal joining the Guadalquivir river Guadiana Menor via rio).

To the east it is bounded by the top of Cabezo de la Jara at 1,246 metres (4,088 ft), by the Sierra de Enmedio which rises to 856 metres (2,808 ft) at Cerro del Medro, by the Sierra de la Almenara at 639 metres (2,096 ft) and the Almagrera sierra, which rises to 367 metres (1,204 ft) at Mount Tenerife. Toward the north and east, the watershed is that of Segura (via the rambla de Chirivel and rio Guadalentin).

The Ancient Romans called it the Surbo, from Latin flumen superbum, "superb river", for its terrible floods. Its present name derives from the Arabic al-Mansura (المنصورة), "place of victory".

Jermaine Turner

Jermaine Turner (born July 29, 1974) is an American-Irish former professional basketball player who spent the majority of his 17-year career playing in the Irish Super League. Turner first arrived in Ireland in 2000 following a season of college basketball with Dowling College. Over 17 years, he spent time with Dungannon, Tralee, Ballina, Tolka Rovers, UCD Marian, St Vincent's, and Killester. He also had stints in Switzerland, Finland, Romania and Spain.

Turner was instrumental in leading St Vincent's and Killester to championship glory during his time with both teams. In 2006, Turner was named the Most Valuable Player of the finals weekend after leading St Vincent's to their first Superleague title since 1994. In 2010 and 2011, he led Killester to back-to-back league championships as well as back-to-back National Cup finals—winning in 2010 and earning MVP of the final, and losing in 2011 to UCD Marian in what Turner describes as his "biggest regret". In his time away from Ireland, Turner enjoyed what he describes as his most enjoyable experience outside of Irish shores: winning the Swiss Division Two league title and MVP honors in 2005 with Vacallo.
