Sleepless nights spent scouting Ateneo all worth it for Adamson coach Pumaren

first_imgAdamson Coach Franz Pumaren. INQUIRER PHOTO/ Sherwin VardeleonAteneo had the most fruitful of summers among the eight teams of the UAAP Season 81 men’s basketball tournament having finished fourth in the Jones Cup as the Philippine representative and taking the title in the Filoil Preseason Cup.All that exposure and success made the Blue Eagles the undisputed target of the seven other teams in the UAAP and that was what Adamson University just did.ADVERTISEMENT Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal The Soaring Falcons pulled off the season’s first upset in stunning the defending champions Blue Eagles, 74-70, and that was thanks in large part to Adamson’s scouting.Guard Jerrick Ahanmisi said the Falcons spent an inordinate amount of time studying Ateneo’s plays, quirks, and tendencies just to prepare for their matchup in the season’s opening weekend.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’“Coach (Franz Pumaren) prepared us a lot and very well, we started scouting them months ago before this game and the coaches did a very good job and whoever was on the floor played a hundred percent,” said Ahanmisi, who finished with 23 points on 8-of-17 shooting.All that work scouting Ateneo showed with how Adamson was able to defend the Blue Eagles inside as well as their pick-and-rolls.

Government had “legally” seated Charrandas in Parliament

first_imgDear Editor,The coalition Government is now making the questionable claim that parliamentarian Charrandas Persaud was not qualified to be elected to the National Assembly because of his Canadian citizenship. Yet the coalition Government had “legally” seated Mr Persaud in Parliament, included him in the tally that gave the Government its one-seat majority, had included his votes in the count of “yes” on bills that in fact became laws – all the while knowingly perpetuating a constitutional illegality! The implications of this admission are staggering. Does this not render any parliamentary decision in which Mr Persaud participated null and void? Does this not make the entire legal structure that declared Mr Persaud legally and properly seated as a parliamentarian culpable of perpetuating a fraud on the Guyanese people?If Mr Persaud was properly and legally seated, then his “yes” vote is valid, and the Government lost. If he was not, then the Government is guilty of perpetuating a fraud of colossal proportions on the Guyanese people. If Persaud had voted “no”, would not his vote have been considered valid and the Government triumphant?Sincerely,Wilbert M Stephensonlast_img read more

TMASCO Seeks US$175,000 Loan

first_imgThe president of the commercial Tricycles and Motorcycles Association (TMASCO), Kollie Koiyan is calling on the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) and investors to empower the union with US$175,000 loan to purchase 50 tricycles.He made the appeal on Saturday at a one day workshop organized by the union to educate its members on defensive driving by ensuring that tricycle operators minimize accidents in the country.According to the TMASCO president, commercial tricycles will empower the unemployed to gain employment.“These tricycles are very expensive and ordinary Liberians cannot afford to buy them and that’s why we are calling on Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) Governor Mills Jones to help us with the microfinance program. One of these tricycles costs US$3,500.”He said tricycles have helped to create jobs and improve the livelihood of Liberians as well as provide commuters easy and cheaper fares to their destinations. “To succeed in the transport business, you must first be ready to invest your time and effort to make it work. Proper regulation is also very important especially if you are going to employ a driver to manage it for you,” he cautioned tricycle owners and operators.He stressed the need for Liberians to get involved in business activities and thereby contribute to the growth of the country’s economy.Mr. Koiyan observed that foreigners can help in promoting Liberia’s economy, but it is Liberians who must take over the business sector.Business plays a major role in society by creating job opportunities for young people that leads to poverty reduction, Koiyan pointed out.He suggested that “If we want Liberians to become big business people, the government must provide loans to support Liberian businesses.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘A Woman Needs to Head the UN’

first_imgThe keynote speaker of this year’s International Women’s Day celebration in Liberia, Mr. David F. Williams, has urged Liberian women and their colleagues worldwide to join the call for the election of a woman to head the United Nations in 2018 when the term of Secretary General Ban Ki-moon comes to an end.According to Mr. Williams who is the Managing Director of the National Port Authority (NPA), for decades men have and continue to lead and direct activities of the world towards achieving global peace, security and development, yet every day there are incidents of war and women and children continue to be murdered in cold blood around the world by extremists. He went on to say that people continue to die from starvation in some places around the world, adding: “I am therefore calling on women around the globe to join the campaign for parity by ensuring that the world sees reason to elect a woman to steer the affairs of the United Nations for the next four years after the term of Mr. Ban Ki-moon.”The International Women’s Day program was held Tuesday in Buchanan City, Grand Bassa County.He told the audience, which included UN officials, that Liberia is a good example of a woman-led administration where decades of civil conflict was resolved by electing President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf as President in 2005, “and since then there has been steady progress and no incidents of war for more than a decade.”Mr. Williams said he sees women as a medium through which many good things are possible and added that it is time to uphold women’s rights for better productivity in Liberia. Mr. Williams stated that this will require a commitment from all sides in order to achieve gender parity by 2030, a targeted date set by the UN for the attainment of gender equality around the world.He believes that women are capable; and with the will power, they can achieve greatness. He named some Liberian women, whom he said achieved greatness and continue to do so in international circles including Madam Angie Brooks Randall, Liberia’s first female Permanent Representative to the UN (1975-78). She was the first woman to chair the UN General Assembly (UNGA). Others are Madam Hanna Abedou Bowen Jones, another female Liberian Permanent Representative to the UN who served as VP to the UNGA (1983-84); Dr. Antoinette Sayeh, Director of Africa of the International Monetary Fund (IMF); Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, who was democratically elected Liberia and Africa’s first female president, among others. The Day was celebrated under the global theme, “Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality,” which calls on countries to make specific commitments at the national level to address the challenges that are holding back women and girls from reaching their full potential.“We are proud to note that in line with this global call for action Liberia is among the countries of the world that have made specific pledges among other things, the passage of the Domestic Violence Law, enforce the law that denies bail to those who commit rape, and guarantee women’s full participation in governance and national affairs a priority. These national commitments are bold and progressive,” Mr. Williams boasted.He used the occasion to call on the National Legislature to pass into handbills the Gender Equity Bill, and called out Nimba, Grand Cape Mount, Maryland, Rivercess and Margibi Counties for not having a single woman among their lawmakers in the National Legislature.In his International Women’s Day Message, UN Secretary General (UNSG) Ban Ki-moon spoke of what he has done to promote women’s leadership in the world body. He said, “I appointed the first-ever female Force Commander of United Nations troops, and pushed women’s representation at the upper levels of our Organization to historic highs. Women are now leaders at the heart of peace and security – a realm that was once the exclusive province of men. “When I arrived at the United Nations, there were no women leading our peace missions in the field. Now, nearly a quarter of all UN missions are headed by women – far from enough but still a vast improvement.“I have signed nearly 150 letters of appointment to women in positions as Assistant Secretary General or Under Secretary General. Some came from top government offices with international renown, others have moved on to leadership positions in their home countries. All helped me prove how often a woman is the best person for a job.”His statement was read by UNMIL Ambassador Farid Zarif, Special Representative of the UNSG in Liberia.Also making remarks, Nimba County Rep. Willie Saywah Dunah, who is a champion of the UN Women HeforShe campaign, said members of the Legislature had formed part of the celebration to show solidarity that they support women’s empowerment in Liberia.On behalf of the Women’s Legislative Caucus, Sen. Jewel Howard Taylor thanked everyone who has helped Liberian women achieve what they have gained so far. She, however, stated that there are more challenges facing women that should be removed. Sen. Taylor said their Caucus will work with their male counterparts in the legislature to address most of the barriers women are faced with.In his brief special remarks, VP Joseph N. Boakai, who is a champion of the UN Women’s HeforShe campaign, told Liberian men, “our women are not asking us to take the backseat; they are asking us to walk with them side by side.” VP Boakai stated that much progress is achieved when men and women work together in partnership to make Liberia great. He called on everyone to work against domestic and other forms of gender-based violence against women in Liberia. The program was attended by women employees of various government agencies and ministries, along with their international counterparts.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

NOW KELLY’S CENTRA BOSS MAIRTIN WILL EVEN DO YOUR WASHING FOR YOU!

first_imgDomestic god….MairtinTHOSE familiar with 24-hour service stations across Europe will recognise this – a washing machine on a garage forecourt.Now the machines have been installed at Kelly’s Centra at Mountain Top in  Letterkenny.It’s one of just seven of the industrial size washers – and tumble dryers – to be installed here in Ireland. And with a capacity of up to 18kgs, they are proving popular with locals and tourists alike.Shop owner Mairtin Kelly says they are already proving extremely popular.“Most people can’t get a duvet or sofa covers into their domestic washing machines so they are proving very popular for that,” said Mairtin.“They haven’t stopped spinning since they were installed a few days ago. Tourists have also been stopping off, chucking their washing in and then going into our restaurant for food while they wait for the wash to finish.” The businessman won’t actually do your washing for you – it is a self-service laundry which comes with washing powder already provided.“I’ve enough to be doing of my own,” he laughed. NOW KELLY’S CENTRA BOSS MAIRTIN WILL EVEN DO YOUR WASHING FOR YOU! was last modified: April 15th, 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:Kelly’s CentralaundryletterkennyMountain Topwashing machineslast_img read more

Said Kirinya coach Charles Ayiekoh.“He is a starter but that doesn’t worry me because in my team all the players i have can play and i prepare them equally.“Tomorrow’s game is going to be hard for us because our brothers (BUL FC) lost their last game will want to bounce back as soon as possible.“All in all, i have confidence in my team and every player that i put on the pitch thus everyone is ready to play and try to win.Match Stats.This will be the fourth top flight meeting between the two sides but non has ever seen victory as all the first three have ended in draws.The reverse fixture last season ended goalles while the first meeting of the current campaign finished 1-1.Bul go into the game having not won in any of their last three league games (D1 L2). However, they have lost only one of their last nine home league games (W5 D3).For Kirinya, they have lost only two in their last nine league games (W5 D2). Their worry will be about their recent away form which has seen them test victory in only two of their last 10 games (D2 L6).In Matugga, Bright Stars who seat in 11th spot host 12 placed Mbarara City.With only a point separating the two sides, and are three and two points away from relegation, non of the two sides will want to make any mistakes as they risk dropping into the relegation zone.Both teams go into the fixture having won only one of their last eight league games.Bright Stars have been immense at home, losing only once all season while Mbarara are still looking for their first three points on the road since the start September.The first meeting between the two sides ended 1-1 at the Kakyeka Stadium in Mbarara.Comments Tags: Azam UPLbright starsBul FCkirinya jssMbarara Citylast_img read more
