Last-ditch stand by PBA underdogs

The Elite face tailender Kia on Feb. 16, NLEX on Feb. 18 and Phoenix on Feb. 21.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkNLEX and Phoenix also toppled favored rivals last week and improved to 4-4 like Ginebra and TNT, which are playing each other at press time last night. The Road Warriors, with rookie Kiefer Ravena capping a team-high 21 points with two clutch baskets in the dying seconds, downed the injury-riddled Meralco Bolts, 87-85, while the Fuel Masters nipped the Katropa, 74-72, behind Matthew Wright, who fired a triple before issuing the game-winning basket to Doug Kramer.Rain or Shine was another revelation in its 101-95 demolition of Magnolia that lifted the Elasto Painters to solo fourth at 5-3 behind the now third-running 6-3 slate of the Hotshots. Despite the loss, Magnolia remained in the running for a top two finish after the eliminations that will enjoy a twice-to-beat bonus in the quarterfinals. But the Hotshots have to win their last two games against GlobalPort (Feb. 16) and Meralco (Feb. 24).The SMB-Alaska duel on Feb. 17 in Dumaguete City will likely decide the elimination topnotcher. Alaska, scheduled against NLEX also at press time yesterday, winds up its campaign against Rain or Shine on Feb. 23. SMB, on the other hand, meets Kia also on Feb. 23 before ending its schedule against Rain or Shine on Feb. 28.Except for Kia, GlobalPort (3-4), Blackwater and Meralco (2-6) are still in contention to make it to the quarterfinals although the last two qualifiers will be facing the tough job of needing to win twice over the two top elimination teams to reach the semifinals. The other four quarterfinalists will collide in a best-of-three series to advance with No. 3 taking on No. 6 and No. 4 facing No. 5.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

EU to Support 2017 Elections, New Energy Project, GAC

first_imgThe European Union (EU) has disclosed that it will support among other things the 2017 Presidential and general elections in Liberia.EU Delegation Ambassador to Liberia, Amb. Attilio Pacifici made the disclosure on May 9, at his residence in Congo during the commemoration of Europe Day.In addition to areas of support for Liberia, the EU Ambassador said his entity will also support the General Auditing Commission (GAC) and will finance a new energy project.“We will also expand the use of budget support to sustain government’s efforts in the security and justice sector in view of the reconfiguration and draw down of UNMIL,” Ambassador Pacifici added.Recalling areas where EU is currently rendering support for Liberia, Ambassador Pacific noted that in 2013 the Forestry Voluntary Partnership Agreement came into force after ratification by the Liberian Legislature.Expressing assurance for proper management of the forest sector, the EU Ambassador pointed out that Forestry Development Authority (FDA) Managing Director Harrison Karnwea is now a guarantee for the implementation of the agreement.He further expressed the hope that the chairmanship of the FDA, headed by Sister Mary Lauren Browne, as well as the vigilant monitoring of civil society will provide the oversight that the sector has been craving for long.According to him, EU-Liberia first official joint implementation committee meeting is expected at the end of this May, and they will go through all details of the implementation of the VPA.In spite of effort made to reach the VPA Agreement, Ambassador Pacifici said more still need to be done including addressing under the Liberian criminal and penal law, wrongdoings that have seriously hurt the interests of the country.“I am committed to make the process and its proceedings as thorough and as transparent as possible to ensure that a sector, stained in the past by murky deals, will contribute to bring about the changes that the President of Liberia strongly and eloquently called for in her speech on the fight against corruption, delivered at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Cecil Dennis Auditorium on May 6, 2014,” Ambassador Pacific said.In addition to the VPA that seeks to control the flow of logs from Liberia so that the country can benefit its fair share, the EU Ambassador emphasized EU’s contribution to the energy sector as one focused area for government and investors.The EU Ambassador further disclosed the EIB which is another institution of EU is blending a concessional loan of 27 million USD with funds from the Saudi Fund for Development and the Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa to finance the reconstruction of the runway of the Roberts International Airport.The EU day where the Ambassador spoke was partially attended by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.  Ambassadors and other host of government officials including Foreign Minister Augustine K. Ngafuan, Agriculture Minister Dr. Florence Chenoweh, Education Minister Etmonia David Tarpeh, Lands, Mines & Energy Minister Patrick Sendolo heads of private institutions and civil society groups, amongst others attended the program.Minister Ngafuan who spoke on behalf of the Liberia Government noted with emphasis that joining the EU to celebrate the day was a pride to Liberia because EU has demonstrated concern in the recovery process of the country.Minister Ngafuan said debt waivers and contributions to the energy sector are among many good things EU has done for Liberia.Responding to information about the departure of some EU diplomats, including Ambassador Pacifici later this year, Minister Ngafuan, realizing the roles of those concerned, acknowledged that considering all of what these officials have done and continue to do, the Liberian government cannot prohibit their departure because it does not lie in Liberia’s domain.The Minister did ask, however, “Why so soon?”  Among those EU staff to be departing this year are Paul Maebe and his spouse Mia, head of Contract and Finance, Dr. Joan Casanova, Carlos Battaglini of the Forest sector, and Claudia Zulaika.Ambassador Pacific confirmed that he will also be leaving this year but did not give a specific date.European Day is an anniversary celebrated every year by the European Union in commemoration of Robert Schuman’s Declaration on May 9, 1950 for unification of Europe to make war on that continent impossible and spread peace and prosperity globally.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Man who led Gardai on high-speed chase pulled up outside Garda station

first_imgA man who led Gardai on a high-speed chase before pulling up outside a Garda station claims he thought undercover officers were other people out to get him.Neil Lynch took off at speed after being approached by Gardai in an unmarked patrol car in Co Donegal on December 14th last. The 41-year-old was parked outside a garage in the village of St Johnston when he saw a car approaching him.He sped off towards the village of Carrigans as Gardai pursued him with their siren on and flashing blue light activated.Lynch increased his speed and then entered onto the wrong side of the road before eventually pulling up outside Carrigans Garda station.His solicitor, Mr Patsy Gallagher, said his client did not know he was being pursued by Gardai but by other individuals.Judge Paul Kelly replied incredulously “With sirens and blue flashing lights?”Mr Gallagher replied that his client did have a chequered past.He said this was the same man who drove a lorry with a tricolour on it through Armagh on July 12th.However, he said Lynch was now trying to move on with his life and was working as a digger driver in Dublin and earning €700 per week.“He seems to have turned over a new leaf and I am asking the court to see if he will abide by the law. If he is working and providing then it will be better all ’round,” said Mr Gallagher.Judge Kelly said he was “very sceptical” about someone who drives away from a car with sirens and blue lights flashing on it.He added that Lynch, of Tullyowen, St Johnston, had an appaling record.He adjourned the case until May 17th and ordered Lynch to undertake the Pro-Social Driving course.Man who led Gardai on high-speed chase pulled up outside Garda station was last modified: March 5th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:chasecourtGardaiNeil LynchSt Johnstonlast_img read more

first_imgDonegal manager Jim McGuinness will meet with Donegal GAA clubs on Friday to try and provide a solution to the yearly problem regarding club fixtures in the county.  The thorny issue of county players playing club championship while Donegal are still actively involved in the All-Ireland series has again raised it’s head again this year following Donegal’s heavy defeat to Mayo.It is reported that McGuinness wants certain assurances before he commits to another year at the helm as Donegal manager, with the issue of club fixtures believed to be one issue he wants assurances on before he commits to managing in 2014. Donegal county chairman Sean Dunnion believes it will be a good opportunity for both parties to make their feelings clear and hopes a positive solution will come from Friday’s meeting.Donegal supporters will be hoping for a “Good Friday” as nobody wants to see Glenties man step down.Hopefully a solution can be proposed were club players are playing football throughout the summer regularly as it’s not fair on them to only play a handful of games all summer, but it is also imperative that McGuinness has a full deck to choose from when Donegal are in championship action.  MCGUINNESS TO MEET CLUB MANAGERS IN ATTEMPT TO RESOLVE FIXTURE PROBLEMS was last modified: September 4th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Club ManagementfixturesFRIDAYJim McGuinnessmeetingnewsproposalSolutionSportlast_img read more

first_imgONE of Donegal’s leading animal welfare groups has had to close down because it can’t cope with the number of abandoned pets.Donegal Pet Rescue insists it is a temporary measure but can’t say for sure when it will be able to re-open.“It is due to the large number of dogs in our care at present,” said Ryan McAuley from the the charity. ” Our 7 foster homes are full to capacity and we have a long waiting list of dogs to come in. We are doing all we can at present but due to the volume of cases coming through we cannot cope with such an influx of dogs.“We have to take time to get the dogs in our care rehomed first to free up foster space so we can take the next dog of our waiting list. We do remind the public that this all done in a voluntary basis and that to please be patient at this time.”He asked that any cases of cruelty can be reported to the DSPCA on 1800303202.Ryan added: “We urge the public to be responsible pet owners and have their pets neutered and train them so they can be a happy healthy adult dog. Also please remember having a pet is a good 10-15 year commitment with lots of work along the way, but it is very rewarding. “Thank you in advance for your time and patience.“If you are in a position to adopt or foster then please contact us, thank you for helping us help them.” SHOCK AS DONEGAL PET RESCUE FORCED TO CLOSE was last modified: August 13th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:crueltydogsdonegalDonegal Pet Rescuenewspetslast_img read more

Konrad resurfaces at Palmdale

first_imgPALMDALE – Former Littlerock High girls’ tennis coach John Konrad took the Lobos to their only Southern Section playoff appearances in school history the past two years. After leaving the school after a controversial dismissal as girls’ basketball coach late last season, Konrad resurfaced at Palmdale, where he’s coaching the girls’ tennis team with his brother, Josh. John Konrad was a late hire and didn’t begin working with the Falcons until the second day of classes in late August. The popular coach decided not to return to Littlerock after administrators relieved him of girls’ basketball duties with less than a month remaining in the season because of procedural issues that were raised when a rescheduled game resulted in a postponement. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week An inexperienced Falcons team that returned just five players and held no summer workouts has held their own under Konrad, going 3-4 in league. Palmdale played Eastside of Lancaster on Tuesday. “It’s nice to have a team again, and the girls are great kids, so it’s been a great experience for all us,” Konrad said. Konrad is hoping to develop a nucleus at Palmdale around several talented up-and-comers. Sophomore Nancy Carmona, the Falcons’ No. 1 singles player, is 14-7 in league action, and doubles partners Liz Gonzalez and Jovanny Cardenas, both juniors, are 12-9. “We have a lot of young kids on this team, and they’re eager to learn,” Konrad said. “I see a lot of potential here, and that’s exciting.” Upset-minded: Quartz Hill’s dominance of the Golden League dated to before many current players were born. The Rebels haven’t lost a league match since the late 1980s and are heavily favored to go unbeaten again this season. Unless Highland has something to say about that. The Bulldogs are hopeful a strong showing from senior singles standout Zahra Ghorbani can propel them to its biggest win in school history Thursday afternoon at Quartz Hill. Highland coach Linda Ruiz knows it will be a formidable challenge. Quartz Hill is led by singles standouts Ashley Litchfield and Prapti Singh. Longtime coach Bill Lenaway has produced an aura of invincibility around the program. “(Lenaway is) a really strong coach,” Ruiz said. “He knows how to get the girls motivated.” Ruiz said Ghorbani was battling flu symptoms and was stressed about the upcoming SAT when she lost all three of her sets in a 13-5 loss Sept. 29 to Quartz Hill. Highland was led by Alex Ruiz (Linda’s daughter) and Kelly Manahan, who swept all three doubles sets in that match. “I think we have a chance,” Linda Ruiz said. “(Quartz Hill is) tough, but we have a chance.” Fun practice: Palmdale moved its practice indoors Monday because of the bad weather. Konrad said the team did some agility drills and volleys in the school’s small gym, which it shared with the football time for much of the afternoon. “I get along with the football coaches, so we were able to work around each other,” Konrad said. “It worked out really well. We had a really fun practice.” Gideon Rubin, (818)713-3607 gideon.rubin@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Manchester City in SA Challenge

first_imgKaizer Chiefs and Manchester United players shake hands before the start of the 2008 Vodacom Challenge final, which United won. (Image: Chris Kirchhoff,MediaClubSouthAfrica.com. For more free photos, visit the image library.)Wilma den HartighBarely three weeks after the end of the 2009 Confederations Cup, South Africa will host another feast of football, with Manchester City, the world’s richest football club, battling it out with Soweto glamour teams Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates in the 10th annual Vodacom Challenge.Sponsored by mobile phone company Vodacom, the Challenge was first played in 1999, with African teams such as Ghana’s Hearts of Oak and Tunisia’s Espérance ST being invited play against the two local clubs. From 2006 the invitation went to English Premier League clubs, with Manchester United losing to Kaizer Chiefs that year, Tottenham Hotspur beating Orlando Pirates in 2007 and, in a 2008 rematch, United winning over Kaizer Chiefs in 2008.Manchester City will play Orlando Pirates on 18 July in Cape Town, and Kaizer Chiefs in Durban on 21 July. On 23 July, Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs will take each other on in the Vodacom Challenge derby in Port Elizabeth. The winner of this match plays Manchester City in the final on 25 July.“Our country has embraced the Vodacom Challenge as one epic event that showcases our stature as a football nation,” said Kaizer Motaung, chair of Kaizer Chiefs. For the players, he said, it has become a launch pad for international careers. He also appealed to South Africans to rally behind the local teams.Orlando Pirates chair Irvin Khoza said the tournament has exceeded expectations. “This international friendly tournament was started with big dreams in mind, and reflecting on its history it has clearly achieved great success,” Khoza said.Manchester City is expected to bring out its top players for the tournament, so fans can look forward to seeing their favourite international football stars in action – such as Brazilian super striker Robinho, who wears the No 10 jersey for City. The current squad also includes Zimbabwean international goal-getter Benjani Mwaruwari, who earlier in his career wore the colours of South African Premier Soccer League side Jomo Cosmos. Welsh international striker Craig Bellamy and famed goal-scorer Shaun Wright-Phillips, son of former England international and Arsenal forward Ian Wright, are also on the team.Since City was bought by United Arab Emirates-based Abu Dhabi United Group in September 2008, the club has been able to invest substantially in new players: Robinho from Real Madrid for a club record of £32.5-million (R450-million), £14-million (R182-million) for Welsh forward Craig Bellamy, £12-million (R150-million) for English left-back Wayne Bridge and £9-million (R117-million) for English winger Shaun Wright-Phillips.In total, they have invested well over R1-billion in fresh talent during the course of this season, and it is likely that more investment is on the cards for the 2009/10 English Premier League campaign.Goals for charityBesides action-packed football, the tournament is also supporting the Vodacom Foundation’s Goals for Miracles campaign, which raises funds for cataract operations for disadvantaged elderly people.For every goal scored in regulation time by Manchester City, Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs, the Vodacom Foundation will contribute R150 000 (US$17 600) to Goals for Miracles – helping restore the sight of hundreds of senior citizens.Three beneficiaries of Goals of Miracles provide the cataract operations: the South African National Council for the Blind, Netcare, and the Pretoria Eye Institute. During the Eye Care Awareness Week in October 2008 the Vodacom Foundation provided funding of R3.7-million ($435 000) for more than 1 700 cataract operations on elderly people. This brought the total number of cataract operations performed since 2004 to nearly 4 000.TicketsMatch tickets for the Vodacom Challenge will be on sale from 27 May at Computicket, Shoprite, Checkers and Checkers Hyper outlets. Ticket prices range from R45 ($5.30) to R150 (17.60) throughout all stadiums.Do you have queries or comments about this article?

K’ryssma® Natural Looking Brown Wavy Wig Long Synthetic Hair Best Lace Front Wigs – Beautiful, reddish wig!

first_imgLove it! It’s most definitely an auburn colour not Beautiful, reddish wig!For the price this is a wonderful natural looking item Wanted this wig for halloween and although i left it pretty late (about a week before), i emailed the seller to ask for faster delivery and they put in the extra effort to deliver it in time so i was able to wear it as part of my queen of hearts costume. Absolutely perfect for the occasion, some people even thought it was my real hair. I’ve already put in another order for a different k’ryssma wig. Only downsides are : gets very tuggy, so much that i actually cut this wig shorter the next day so it was more manageable, but apart from that, its class. Lovely natural looking colour too, amazing customer support from the seller. This is my first lace front wig, and it’s pretty stunning for the price to be honest. I have naturally auburn hair, and this definitely leans on the side of more ginger-looking than brown if i’m honest, so bear that in mind if you are looking for a purely brown wig. It’s very long, too long for my personal preference, so i styled it to the length i preferred and i love it. The parting can be a bit fiddly to get in the right place, it’s difficult to move it. A way around this, i found, was to shift the wig over slightly, so that you get a side-parting, and that seemed to work fine. I’m in the process of buying another, and making a list of k’ryssma’s other wigs that i want. I love this wig, really fast delivery, super long and soft and really thick, i would recommend. For the price this is a wonderful natural looking item. Customer support is worth more than 5*’s. I will be buying more from kryssma :). Nice packaging and luv it so much. It does take a bit of work to make the hairline look natural but that’s easily done with some tweasers and concealer. It’s most definitely an auburn colour not at all brown. It’s very long too and looks a bit straggley if left left so i chopped it and now it looks very natural. I’ve had a lot of comments on it saying what a beautiful colour and is it my natural colour. They can’t believe it when i say it’s a wig. Just remember to add a reddish tint to your eyebrows :). Bought this with some caution but so glad i did. I used to wear expensive weaves all the time and really miss them, this colour and length/style was my favourite in weaves so was really happy to find it in a wig. In the pics i was just trying it on without glue or anything and was happy to find there was a lot of grip without that. This is my first full head wig and first lace front. The hair is soft and lovely but does tangle quite quickly. I don’t really care for the price that it is though and it looks so lovely on. Very fast delivery fits and looks good.

Apple Just Set Itself Up For A Big Spring Product Launch: Finally, A TV?

first_imgWhat does Apple’s new iPad tell us about Apple’s future new product launch plans? Maybe a little.Over the past few years years, Apple has scheduled its gadget launches in fairly regular, annual cycles. That is: New iPad in the spring, new OS X in the summer, new iPhone and iOS in the summer or fall, new iPods in the fall. (New Macs whenever.)But with today’s big iPad launch — including the iPad mini and a new, fourth-generation iPad — Apple leaves a big question mark for next spring: What’s it going to announce between January and June?Will Apple move the iPad to a six-month update cycle, unveiling new iPads annually in both the spring and fall?Probably not — an annual update still seems frequent enough. People aren’t likely to buy new iPads more often than every couple of years, and component breakthroughs aren’t always going to happen every six months. Plus, it’s not like competitors are breaking through the market with regular updates.But it does make sense to move Apple’s iPad updates to the fall, in time for the big holiday shopping season. With rivals like Amazon and Google (and soon Microsoft) finally starting to catch up in the tablet market, it no longer makes sense for Apple to sell half-year-old tablets as Christmas presents.So what will Apple do in the Spring? Something, right? Going six months before another launch seems unlikely.It’s probably not going to be another iPhone or iPod. This really sounds like an opportunity for something new.One possibility: Finally, an Apple television set. Spring isn’t necessarily the ideal time to start selling a TV — right after Christmas and the Super Bowl — but slowly rolling out a TV might be a decent idea, anyway.Or something else? Perhaps a new fitness device in time for warm weather? Or an entirely new gadget that we haven’t even considered yet?Either way, there’s now room for something.Photo: Grey Clayman Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Apple#iPad#iPad mini#Mysteries#TV Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…center_img dan frommer 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more
