Chot chooses Gilas veterans

first_imgView comments MOST READ Reyes put Carl Bryan Cruz, Mac Belo and the injured Raymond Almazan in the freezer for this match, but reiterated that the Gilas roster could change when the Filipinos battle Chinese Taipei at home on Monday.“Basically, we took into account the team that we are playing [today],” Reyes said after revealing the final roster. “And we also took into account our health and injury situation.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSBack on the throneThe 6-foot-7 Almazan still has a swollen ankle, and could be available for the Taiwanese.“I spoke to the three of them and they took it very professionally and very well,” Reyes added. “This is just the 12-man roster for [Friday’s] game. For Taiwan, it would be different. Every game could change.” The talented 6-foot-10 center Joji Takeuchi will still be the Japanese’s main man, though the Filipinos have ample knowledge of how he plays, which will be critical in Reyes’ defensive scheme.There are a total of 80 countries taking part in this hectic qualifying process, with the Philippines shooting to become one of eight countries coming from Asia to play in the World Cup in China in 2019.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set 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 Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?

DOHERTY DEMANDS GOVERNMENT STARTS BOOK RENTAL SCHEME FOR CASH-STRAPPED FAMILIES

first_imgDonegal TD Pearse Doherty has called on the Education Minister to wake up to the needs of people and introduce a schoolbook rental scheme.Books are costing Donegal families a small fortune.As parents and guardians face the strain of the start of another school year, Sinn Féin’s finance spokesperson said it is a must.Deputy Doherty said “It is time that the government woke up to the reality of people’s lives and recognised the hardship that buying schoolbooks is causing. “We are advocating state provision of books, to be loaned to students, returned at the end of the school year and passed on.“Sinn Féin estimates that this could be achieved at a cost of €45 million in the first year, which would decrease after the initial period.”The Donegal deputy said this is an anti-poverty measure contained in the Sinn Féin alternative budget for next year.“The Sinn Féin budget will contain other proposals to lessen the burden of the cost of returning to school for families. “A Barnardo’s survey in July 2012 found that the average cost of sending a 12-year-old child to secondary school was €770 and a six-year-old to senior infants €355.“Minister Quinn knows these figures and it is time he took action on this annual hardship for families.”DOHERTY DEMANDS GOVERNMENT STARTS BOOK RENTAL SCHEME FOR CASH-STRAPPED FAMILIES was last modified: August 27th, 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:BOOK RENTAL SCHEMEMINISTER FOR EDUCATIONPearse Dohertyruairi quinnlast_img read more
