GALLERY: Barangay Ginebra back as PBA Governors’ Cup kings Alas remembered Guiao’s words, and on Sunday, the fourth-year guard, heeded his coach’s advice.In his best offensive night in the pros, the 26-year-old fired on all cylinders at Philippine Arena, draining four of his five triples in the fourth period to carry NLEX to a 93-90 squeaker over Blackwater.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 folkThat performance garnered Alas a new career-high of 25 points, on 5-of-12 shooting from downtown, to go with eight rebounds and five assists as the Road Warriors clinched a spot in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup quarterfinals.Asked what led to his stupendous showing, the 26-year-old said that it was just a matter of him trusting Guiao’s system while also seeking to perform better than his 15-point effort against Alaska last week. FILE – Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netBOCAUE — NLEX coach Yeng Guiao knew how good of an offensive threat Kevin Alas could be once he fully develops his outside shooting.“I’ve been getting on Kevin’s outside shooting the last few games, I’ve been asking him to take outside shots, come early in the morning in practice and practice those outside shots. I’ve been telling him that he’s underusing his outside game and he’s relying so much on his slashing ability and the defense were already sagging off him,” Guiao said.ADVERTISEMENT Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next MOST READ Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Sea turtle trapped in net freed in Legazpi City “I was locked in. I played ok last game but coach said that I shouldn’t be satisfied,” he shared. “I just wanted to repay the trust coach has been giving me.”His explosion came at the right time for the Road Warriors, who was banking largely on Kiefer Ravena majority of the game before finding another offensive weapon in Alas.“We’re down and Kiefer was playing well. The focus of the defense was on him so I felt someone had to step up. We can’t rely on Kiefer alone and I’m happy that we’re both able to play well,” he said as that opened the floodgates for the others like Cyrus Baguio and Rabeh Al-Hussaini to make big plays down the stretch.With the famed NLEX backcourt now clicking, Alas is keeping his fingers crossed that this will only be the beginning of what Guiao labeled as his “K-and-K” combo.“I hope we’ll be consistent.

Mr. Akoi: “We’re appealing to the lawmakers to pass rigid drugs law.” Wants Narcotic Drug offenses non-bailableRobert B. Kutu Akoi, Director for Drug Prevention at the Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency (LDEA), says the agency has found it difficult to fight against illegal substances, because of the country’s weak laws on illegal drugs, the lack of logistical support and the lack of budgetary support, all of which have hampered efforts.Mr. Akoi spoke recently when he served as one of the panelists at a one-day youth forum organized by a Christian youth organization entitled, “African Youth Fellowship,” (AYF) in Monrovia.He told a cross-section of students from various high schools in Monrovia that the LDEA has not been able to work effectively due to challenges of weak laws and the lack of logistical support to visit many of the drug-related crime-prone communities.Akoi spoke on the topic, “The Effect of Narcotic Drugs on the Mind, Body, and Environment.”The day-long event, which was hosted at the Calvary Memorial Chapel on 19th Street in Sinkor, under the theme, “A Healthy Youth is a Working Leader,” brought together students from St. Mary’s Catholic High School on Bushrod Island, the Ocean View Christian Academy in Sinkor, and several civil society actors.Mr. Akoi said many times when suspected drug dealers are arrested, they would resurface in the community, which he said is due to weak judicial systems to prosecute the accused persons.“Sometimes LDEA officers will arrest several suspected peddlers in Monrovia and its environs, but these laws are weak, and the perpetrators usually get released. Citizens who do not understand our scope of operations will attribute the release of the suspect to the LDEA, saying we are not working,” Akoi said.He meanwhile called on the government to increase the budget to the agency, and also provide logistics to enhance movement of officers in the discharge of their duties.Akoi then recommended that the government makes drug laws a non-bailable offense.Student Willie B. Taweh of the Ocean View Christian Academy described the event as unique, because they it was important for them to know the effect that drugs have on the body and the environment.Esther M. Kar, AYF Communication Director said it is important to bring together students from various high schools to learn about the dangerous effects of the use of narcotics and its effect on the human body and the environment.AYF is a non-profitable and non-political organization founded on December 14, 2018, and seeks to promote talents of youth and provide a supportive platform for challenging the creativity of many of the youthful population.It currently operates in Montserrado, Bong and Margibi Counties.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Two men, who allegedly attempted to murder a Meten-Meer-Zorg, West Coast Demerara (WCD) labourer were on Tuesday charged and brought before a Judge at the Leonora Magistrate’s Court.The duo – 21-year-old Robindra Parahoo, called “Robin”; and 23-year-old Annacha Parahoo, both of Lot 108 Ocean Gardens, Meten-Meer-Zorg, WCD – denied the allegation when the charge was read to them.They denied that on February 27, 2019 at Ocean Garden, Meten-Meer-Zorg, they attempted to murder 48-year-old Terry Persaud.Both men were released on $200,000 bail and the case will continue on April 4. As a condition to bail, the suspects were ordered to report to the Leonora Police Station every Friday until the completion of the matter.
Republicans promised to stand squarely behind the president in rejecting what they called a “surrender date” handed to the enemy. “Al-Qaida will view this as the day the House of Representatives threw in the towel,” said Rep. Jerry Lewis of California, ranking Republican on the House Appropriations Committee. The $124.2 billion bill would fund the war, among other things, but demand that troop withdrawals begin Oct. 1 or sooner if the Iraqi government does not meet certain standards. The bill sets a nonbinding goal of completing the troop pullout by April 1, 2008, allowing for forces conducting certain noncombat missions, such as attacking terrorist networks or training Iraqi forces, to remain. Two Republicans – Reps. Wayne Gilchrest of Maryland and Walter Jones of North Carolina – joined 216 Democrats in passing the bill. Voting no were 195 Republicans and 13 Democrats. House and Senate appropriators agreed to the legislation earlier this week. The Senate was expected to clear the measure today, sending it to the president. While Bush was confident the bill would ultimately fail because Democrats lacked the two-thirds majority needed to override a veto, he kept up pressure on lawmakers. On the same day as the House vote, the president dispatched his Iraq commander, Gen. David Petraeus, and other senior defense officials to Capitol Hill to make his case: Additional forces recently sent to Iraq are yielding mixed results and the strategy needs more time to work. Petraeus told reporters sectarian killings in Baghdad were only one-third of what they were in January, before Bush began sending in additional U.S. forces. He added that progress in the troubled western Anbar province was “breathtaking,” and that he thought Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki was “doing his best” at leading the country. But “the ability of al-Qaida to conduct horrific, sensational attacks obviously has represented a setback and is an area in which we’re focusing considerable attention,” Petraeus said. Petraeus said he would not touch on the “minefield of discussions about various legislative proposals,” but he noted the new strategy in Iraq was just beginning. He said he planned to provide more details in early September. Petraeus’ comments Wednesday put a finer point on when the much-awaited decision about the length of the U.S. troop buildup might come, saying he will make an assessment of the conditions in Iraq in early September, and report back to Defense Secretary Robert Gates and other military leaders. Gates has said he expects the assessment this summer, but this is the first time military leaders said it would not be until September. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Bush to begin withdrawing troops from Iraq by Oct. 1. The 218-208 vote came as the top U.S. commander in Iraq told lawmakers the country remained gripped by violence but was showing some signs of improvement. Passage puts the bill on track to clear Congress by week’s end and arrive on the president’s desk in coming days as the first binding congressional challenge to Bush’s handling of the conflict now in its fifth year. “Our troops are mired in a civil war with no clear enemy and no clear strategy for success,” said House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer.

(IFAB) has proposed the idea to prevent time-wasting 1 World football’s rule-makers are to consider a proposal to reduce each half of a game to 30 minutes in a bid to prevent time-wasting.The International Football Association Board (IFAB) has outlined a raft of radical proposed changes to the rules of the game in a new strategy document titled Play Fair!.Adopting two halves of 30 minutes with the clock stopped when the ball goes out of play is one of dozens of ideas put forward by IFAB in a bid to make football more attractive.IFAB says the Fair Play! document has three aims – to improve player behaviour and increase respect, to increase playing time and to increase fairness and attractiveness.“Many people are very frustrated that a typical 90-minute match has fewer than 60 minutes of effective (actual) playing time (EPT) i.e. when the ball is in play,” IFAB said in the document.“The strategy proposes measures to reduce time-wasting and ‘speed up’ the game.”IFAB said some of the proposals could be implemented immediately and require no law changes, while some are “ready for testing/experiments” and some are “for discussion”.Among the ideas up for discussion is that of a player being allowed to pass to themselves at a free-kick, corner and goal-kick, a stadium clock which stops and starts along with the referee’s watch, and allowing a goal-kick to be taken even if the ball is moving.Other ideas up “for discussion” include referees only blowing for half-time or full-time when the ball goes out of play, and a penalty kick being either scored or missed/saved, with players not allowed to follow up to score, in order to stop encroachment into the penalty area.Plans which need no law changes mostly apply to IFAB’s bid to combat time-wasting.The document says match officials should be stricter on the rule which allows goalkeepers to hold the ball for six seconds.IFAB suggests match officials should be stricter on time-keeping, stopping their watch from a penalty being awarded to the spot-kick being taken, from a goal being scored until the match resumes from the kick-off, and from the signal of a substitution to play restarting.The proposals already being tested include the idea of only allowing captains to speak to referees to prevent match officials being mobbed. This is being trialled at the Confederations Cup in Russia, which started on Saturday.Another proposal already being tested is a change to the order of penalty kicks in shoot-outs, known as ABBA.Instead of teams taking alternate penalties, the new system involves team A taking the first kick, then team B taking two, then team A taking two.“The ‘first’ kick in kicks from the penalty mark has a built-in advantage primarily because there is greater mental pressure on the second kicker (in each round) who often faces instant elimination if they miss their kick (especially once the first four kicks for each team have been completed),” the document says.IFAB is made up of world football’s governing body, FIFA, and the four British home football associations and is responsible for making the final decision on law changes.The Play Fair! document will be discussed at various meetings before decisions are taken on whether to develop ideas further or discard them.

Shaun Mc Shane is back in action on Saturday night when he faces Bulgarian opponent Radoslav Mitev.Leitirmacaward boxer Shaun Mc Shane has issued a rallying cry ahead of his bout with Radoslav Mitev at the Ravenscraig Regional Sport Facility in Motherwell on Saturday night.The talented Bulgarian caused a major surprise when he defeated the highly-rated Eddie Doyle in June.Mc Shane who has underwent surgery on a troublesome knee problem since his last fight is raring to get back into the ring. Mc Shane says his training camp has went really well, and his preparation for the forthcoming fight has been ideal.Mc Shane told Donegal Daily, “I got surgery on the knee during the summer, and I probably didn’t expect to return to the ring so soon.“However, when the fight was presented to me, I wasn’t going to turn it down, I love a challenge and to be honest I’m just raring to get back into the ring.Mc Shane admitted he doesn’t know much about his opponent, but the fact he defeated Eddie Doyle means he won’t be no pushover and Mc Shane will give him the respect he deserves. Mc Shane said, “I don’t know much about him, but he caused somewhat of an upset when he beat Eddie Doyle.“He’s a good boxer and it’s going to be a tough fight on Saturday, but I’m confident in my own ability and I believe I can win.“He’s never faced a Donegal man before, he won’t know what hit him on Saturday night.With a mass invasion of Irish fans expected to descend on Glasgow this weekend for the Euro 2016 qualifier, it’s expected a large number will make their way to the venue on Saturday to cheer on Mc Shane.Mc Shane said “The support I’ve received so far in the fights have been overwhelming, it’s been brilliant. “It really does give you extra energy, and I’m hoping it’s a good weekend, hopefully Ireland can win on Friday night and I can complete the double on Saturday, he joked.BOXING: SHAUN MC SHANE – “HE’S NEVER FACED A DONEGAL MAN BEFORE, HE WON’T KNOW WHAT HIT HIM” was last modified: November 12th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:boxingnewsShaun Mc ShaneSport
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Plantation 3810 band members said they made sure practice became part of their daily routine once they found out about the opportunity. “We started practicing in February, and despite the long hours on top of work, just being able to play music with friends, in the end, it was all worth it,” said Stacy Smith, Plantation 3810 vocalist. “It really was a great honor to get to represent our squadron, Edwards, and play with these guys,” said Joe Crum, Plantation 3810 bassist. After Everclear’s performance, Plantation 3810 members met with Everclear band members to ask for advice. “The only advice I can give these guys, from a creative point of view, is that you have to reinvent yourself every day and get to a place where you love what you’re doing and other people love what you’re doing,” said Art Alexakis, Everclear lead singer. “To get anything out of life you have to want it bad, really bad, and it doesn’t mean you have to do bad things to achieve it, but you have to work really hard.” EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE – A band made up of four airmen got to open for the alternative rock group Everclear at the Edwards Fall Fest. Plantation 3810, whose members are from the 412th Component Maintenance Squadron Propulsion Flight, earned the spot by winning a Battle of the Bands competition at the base. “We originally formed to play in a basewide talent show but (the talent show) ended up being canceled,” said guitarist Bryan Campbell. “After that fell through, the Services Division held a Battle of the Bands competition so we got together once again, won it and now we’re here.” Everclear’s performance at Edwards kicked off its 2005 worldwide tour where the group will be playing on military installations in Japan, South Korea, Guam and Hawaii. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
