Chot: Gilas needs to get better for game down under

first_imgKiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales? Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) chair emeritus Manny V. Pangilinan noted that Gilas’ three-week training, clearly, wasn’t enough.“If we are going to get serious against Australia, we have got to give enough time for the team to jell,” said Pangilinan.Part of that preparation should be getting Blatche on board early, said Reyes, as the 31-year-old got criticized for his sluggish showing.“The key is to get him to practice more than five days,” said Reyes, after Blatche flew in late due to commitments in China. “We can’t teach everything in five days. Or you might be able to teach everything, but to actually practice it, run it, make it instinct, you can’t get that in five days.”Blatche had a measly six points on a 2-of-9 shooting plus six turnovers against Taipei, but had 14 rebounds and five blocks. Reyes got a big boost, however, from June Mar Fajardo’s 17 points off the bench on top of eight rebounds, two assists and a couple of blocks.ADVERTISEMENT Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson MOST READ Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene View comments Jarata replicates Palawan tennis 3-peat LATEST STORIES Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set “It’s simply a matter of them (players) getting used to it mentally and physically,” said Reyes.Gilas struggled pulling off victories over Japan ( 77-71) last Friday in Tokyo and Chinese Taipei (90-83) Monday night in Manila in the first window of Group B action.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSBack on the throneSo despite the 2-0 start, Reyes expects things to get harder when the Philippines takes on powerhouse Australia in the second window on Feb. 22, 2018 in Adelaide.“It’s going to be three months so there won’t be any kind of momentum that’s going to be built,” said Reyes. “But it armed us a lot of knowledge about ourselves.

Atty. Kofi Woods: Bryant’s Quest to Resist Gov’t

first_imgFormer Public Works Minister, Samuel Kofi Woods, has described late NTGL chairman Charles Gyude Bryant’s wish that government “must not participate in his funeral ceremony” as a “voice of protest from the grave.”Former NTGL chairman Bryant recently passed at the JFK Memorial Hospital in Monrovia as a result of heart failure, doctors confirmed.Before his death, Bryant drafted his ‘will,’ and in that document, family sources confirmed, “Bryant does not want the Liberian government’s involvement in his funeral”.Mixed reactions greeted the pronouncement when it was released by the family to the media. Many supported the deceased’s wish while others argued that the responsibility for Bryant’s funeral, as a former statesman, belongs to the government of Liberia; and as such, funeral arrangements should be the responsibility of government along with family members.Over the weekend, Atty. Woods joined the quest to resist the involvement and presence of government during the funeral.”If Chairman Bryant had a wish, I say that it should be carried out to the fullest,” Atty. Woods declared.He frowned on critics who argued against politicizing Bryant’s death, noting that former Chairman Bryant lived as a politician. He served as former party chairman and interim head of state of Liberia, another political office; he lived and died as a politician. As such, he said, his death has evoked mixed reactions from members of the public.“It is expected that events and developments surrounding his demise will be the subject of political debate,” he indicated.Woods went on to say, “It’s a reality that we need to confront. I say, if Chairman Bryant had a wish, we should respect it because his voice is a protest from the grave. He is raising our consciousness as a nation even in his death. He sends a clear message to this society and leadership about a new value system, about an order gone wrong and about a society on the sad path of reversal. This is a silent protest and former chairman Bryant is saying to you in his sample way, that his legitimacy must come from the Liberian people,” the human rights activist intoned.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Would Broomes be reprimanded by the President?

first_imgDear Editor,While I dislike commenting on matters of a political nature, and more especially make pronunciation on matters that involve politicians in Guyana, I want to make an observation regarding the recent “spat” between Minister Broomes and the security guards at the New Thriving Restaurant/Massy Compound at Providence, East Bank Demerara.The guards were arrested, detained and locked up for sixteen (16) hours. Upon reviewing the CCTV footage by competent personnel, I gather that the minister and her driver were the aggressors, and they both lied regarding exactly what had transpired.I beg to ask: Would the minister’s driver be charged and his firearm licence revoked for his role? And would the minister, whose conduct leaves much to be desired, be reprimanded by the President?I recall this very minister using the Parliament Building one time to “Boom out Jagdeo”.Sincerely,J.

Nigeria, Algeria Break Hearts with Losses to France, Germany

first_imgNigeria’s Super Eagles put up a good fight, but it was a fight that did not yield the desired results and therefore broke the hearts of many.Fans across the continent of Africa were disappointed when Nigeria’s Super Eagles kissed their chances goodbye against France in their quarter-finals decider Monday at the Estadio Nacional in Brasilia. Likewise when Algeria, the last African team standing, lost 2-1 to Germany in extra time after 90 minutes of a goalless draw.Though France was considered the favorite, the African champions called off that bluff, and held their side until the 79th minute when Paul Pogba’s header from the center of the box entered the bottom right corner following a corner to give France their first goal.The second goal was an own goal scored by Joseph Yobo in the 92nd minute when he diverted Valbuena’s low cross into his own net. It is the second time that an own goal has doomed an African nation. Ghana’s undoing against Portugal came from an own-goal.Though the 2-0 gave France the game, the game itself proved too difficult for the French, as the African Champions were in no mood, initially to back down.The Super Eagles could have shot ahead in the 19th minute with Emmanuel Emenike connecting from an inswinging pass from Ahmed Musa but an offside stopped Emenike from completing the job.The African champions on several occasions were purposeful in defense and attack, with Victor Moses and Vincent Enyeama moving back and forth.When France got the first goal, they seemed to lose steam, just preferring to defend their lone goal.  But the inevitable happened with Yobo’s deflection.The most impressive player on the French side was Paul Pogba, whose work-rate was above average, while on the Nigerian side, Victor Moses proved unyielding in his performance.With all chances lost, it was France who made a breakthrough when Yohan Cabaye’s 25-yard volley rebounded to safety from the underside of the crossbar.The Super Eagles’ exit shrunk Africa’s hope, leaving Algeria standing alone; but Algeria, after a strong fight, lost 2-1 to Germany Monday night, effectively ending Africa’s chances at World Cup glory. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Dow takes another dive

first_imgNEW YORK – Stocks plunged Tuesday, driving the Dow Jones industrials down more than 240 points to their second-biggest drop in almost four years, as troubles piled up for subprime lenders. Investors, bracing for a wilting economy, fled the already deflated subprime mortgage sector on more news that lenders New Century Financial Corp., Accredited Home Lenders Holding Co. and General Motors Acceptance Corp.’s residential unit are facing financial problems. The Mortgage Bankers Association bolstered the belief that the struggles are widespread after it said new foreclosures surged to an all-time high in the last quarter of 2006. All three major stock indexes were knocked down about 2 percent. “The market’s still jittery, and they’re starting to get full-blown concerns over a bleed in the larger subprime mortgage market,” said Matt Kelmon, portfolio manager of the Kelmoore Strategy Funds. Broader stock indicators also fell by their largest amounts in two weeks. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 28.65, or 2.04 percent, to 1,377.95, and the Nasdaq composite index slid 51.72, or 2.15 percent, to 2,350.57. Consolidated volume on the New York Stock Exchange, where declining issues outnumbered advancers by 5 to 1, was high at 3.49 billion shares – more than the 2.62 billion shares traded a day earlier, but lower than the 4.56 billion shares traded on Feb. 27, when the Dow took its largest plunge since Sept. 17, 2001. Trading collars were triggered Tuesday afternoon when the New York Stock Exchange Composite index lost more than 180 points. The collars put a chokehold on certain orders, forbidding transactions that capitalize on discrepancies in prices. Subprime lending jitters and sluggish retail sales drove up bond prices. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note fell to 4.50 percent from 4.56 percent late Monday. Gold prices fell, and the dollar was lower against most major currencies. A drop in the dollar versus the yen renewed anxiety about traders unwinding their yen “carry trades,” or taking money out of high-yielding dollar assets bought with the low-yielding yen. The subprime worries have been mounting for weeks now, but came to a head when the New York Stock Exchange took steps to delist shares of New Century, which said Tuesday that the Securities and Exchange Commission would be probing accounting errors that inflated its loan portfolio. “Investors are poking around to see how much rotted wood there is here,” said Jack Ablin, chief investment officer for Harris Private Bank. “It looks like the notion was subprime was contained, and now we’re starting to see that maybe this problem has moved into other areas of the market. That’s causing investors great concern.” Accredited Home contributed to the anxiety after it said it is in need of cash. Its shares plunged $7.43, or 65 percent, to $3.97. Wall Street sold off further when the Mortgage Bankers Association’s quarterly report on the mortgage market seemed to confirm investors’ worries that the entire sector is floundering and could weaken further: Not only did new foreclosures hit a record high in the fourth quarter of last year, but late mortgage payments soared to a 3 -year high. Late in the session, General Motors Acceptance Corp. – General Motors Corp.’s part-owned financing arm – reported that its fourth-quarter profit rose, but struggles in its Residential Capital LLC unit were eating into earnings. That news gave investors extra motivation to sell. “The fear index is rising,” said Steven Cochrane, senior managing director for Moody’s Economy.com. “(Subprime mortgages) are our No. 1 concern right now.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Subprime lenders provide mortgages to people with poor credit. Though they are a relatively small part of the U.S. economy, their difficulties raise larger concerns about the housing market, which until its slowdown in recent years was a big source of money for consumers. That, coupled with the Commerce Department’s report Tuesday that U.S. retailers eked out a meager 0.1 percent rise in sales last month, led Wall Street to reconsider whether Americans’ buying power will withstand an economic slowdown. Tuesday’s selloff was accentuated by options expiring soon and by volatility that has increased since the market’s big plunge on Feb. 27 – a 416-point drop in the Dow that was caused partially by the escalating distress among subprime lenders. The Dow fell 242.66, or 1.97 percent, to 12,075.96. On March 24, 2003, the index dropped 307 points when U.S. casualties began mounting in Iraq. The blue chip index is now down about 710 points, more than 5 percent, from its record close reached Feb. 20. Many market watchers suspect that the market’s correction is not over. The Dow is still above the low for the year of 12,050.41 reached March 5 and has yet to slip below the 12,000 level, which it reached for the first time last October. last_img read more

High court considers prep athletic recruiting

first_imgBrentwood voluntarily joined the association and was bound by its rules, she said. The case has been winding through the courts for nearly a decade. When before the Supreme Court in 2001, it ruled 5-4 in favor of Brentwood, saying the athletic association acted in a quasi-governmental capacity and could be sued. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON – A 1997 letter from a football coach became the focus of heated questions at the Supreme Court on Wednesday during arguments about limits on recruiting high school athletes. At issue is whether a private school in Tennessee has a free-speech right to contact prospective students about its sports programs, even though the school belongs to an athletic association with anti-recruiting rules that bar such contacts. Justice Antonin Scalia expressed doubt about Brentwood Academy’s free-speech rights in relation to the letter, which invited 12 eighth-graders at other schools to attend spring training at Brentwood. “It was a letter from coach,” Scalia said. “I mean, that to a young kid, that is recruiting.” Justices Stephen Breyer and David Souter also had pointed questions for James Blumstein, the attorney representing Brentwood, a wealthy prep school south of Nashville. Blumstein argued the letter was harmless and was sent only to students at other schools who had already signed an “enrollment contract” and planned to attend the academy in the fall. Souter quizzed Blumstein about the small percentage of students who sign the enrollment contracts but then go to other schools. Why isn’t there a legitimate interest in preventing recruiting among those youngsters, Souter asked. The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association, which governs high school sports in the state, found the 1997 letter from coach Carlton Flatt to be a violation of its recruiting rule. The association fined Brentwood $3,000 and gave it four years’ probation. “Enforcement of the rule here imposed only a minimal burden on speech,” Maureen Mahoney, an attorney for the association, told the justices. Athletic recruiting, she said, is harmful to young adults and puts too much of an emphasis on sports. last_img read more

Metro Division officers now off street

first_imgThe Metropolitan Division is the city’s premier police squad, made up of experienced, career officers who have extensive training in crowd control. Bratton said up to 60 members of Metro’s B Platoon are no longer in the field as a result of the incident. Additionally, the chief said, some officers will “in all likelihood not be returning to the Metropolitan Division, as a result of our findings.” “Some of this will be career-impacting,” Bratton said, adding that the imposition of permanent disciplinary action will await completion of the Police Department investigation. Journalist organizations asked why officers ignored LAPD policies toward the news media worked out after reporters were assaulted during the 2000 Democratic National Convention. A 2002 agreement with media organizations and the American Civil Liberties Union called for, among other things, designation of a safe spot for reporters covering news events. LAPD spokeswoman Mary Grady acknowledged reporters were not given “a designated safe spot” at MacArthur Park. “There appears to have been here a failure to communicate,” Press Photographers Association local president and Daily News staff photographer John McCoy said. While Bratton met with journalist groups, Villaraigosa was speaking at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels downtown where Cardinal Roger Mahony was celebrating a Mass of consolation and healing. “It is important for us in these moments to remember that we must come together, work together, to ensure that what happened on May 1 doesn’t happen again,” Villaraigosa said. “The only way we can do that is to ensure that those responsible for the decisions that were made, that caused the violence, on May 1 be held accountable,” the mayor said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Police Chief William Bratton said Sunday that members of his elite Metro Division who swarmed into MacArthur Park and fired rubber bullets during a May Day immigration rally are no longer on the street. While Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was downtown saying those responsible for the melee will be held accountable, Bratton met with journalists at the KTLA-TV studios in Hollywood and conceded procedures weren’t followed. “I’m not going to defend the indefensible,” Bratton said, adding, “Things were done that shouldn’t have been done.” “I’m not seeking to excuse it, but as one human being to another, there were things that shouldn’t have been done,” Bratton told journalists. Journalists were among those roughed up as Metropolitan Division’s B Platoon moved through MacArthur and fired rubber bullets to break up what had been a peaceful and lawful immigration rally. Bratton said Sunday that investigators determined 148 projectiles were fired rather than 240 reported earlier. Police said they moved in after rocks and bottles were thrown at them by agitators, now estimated at about 30 to 40 instead of the 50 to 100 that police officials first reported, the chief said. Video televised worldwide showed police officers, including Metro Division officers, apparently violating numerous LAPD policies, Bratton said. Besides police investigations, the FBI has begun a probe into the melee. Bratton said he spent the weekend viewing video of the incident and said LAPD failures were widespread with officers from the top on down culpable. Twelve two-officer LAPD investigation teams conducted interviews through the weekend, Bratton said. last_img read more

Exclusive – Irvine backs strike pair to start firing for West Brom

first_imgWest Brom boss Alan Irvine is backing Saido Berahino to hit top form again and help fire the Baggies up the Premier League table.Berahino enjoyed a brilliant start to the campaign, scoring seven goals in nine games, to earn a first senior England call-up.But he has not found the net since the end of October and was left on the bench for the first time in the league this season as the Baggies drew 0-0 with Hull City last Saturdfay.The 21-year-old, however, is in line to return to the starting XI against Aston Villa this weekend and Irvine is confident he will soon be back to his best.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Irvine said: “Saido has done really well for us this season. He has found things a bit more difficult in the last few weeks but as a striker you go through spells when you are scoring frequently and you go through spells when you don’t score.“At the moment, Saido is going through a difficult spell but he will come out at the other end of that like all good strikers do.”Irvine is also confident Baggies fans will soon see the best of Brown Ideye.Signed for a club record fee in the summer, the Nigerian forward has struggled with injury and has yet to make an impact at the Hawthorns.But Irvine said: “He came in without a pre season and, as typically happens with many people who are trying to catch up, he got injured. That set him back even further and it has been a long, hard road for him, but he has been showing up really well in training lately.“We had a closed doors game during the week where he scored a couple of goals, so he is certainly a lot closer to being ready to play than he has been.”last_img read more
