OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson LATEST STORIES Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netIt’s the season of giving.But for some PBA rookies, they couldn’t avoid having their fair share of weird and wacky gifts they’ve received during the Yuletide season.ADVERTISEMENT “I’ll spend my Christmas in my condo. We have practice so I’ll only be able to come home in the New Year,” he said.Same goes for eighth overall pick Sidney Onwubere, who plans to stay in the gym come the 25th as he hopes to make a splash with TNT.“Back to the gym for me. Even if it’s Christmas, I’ll be working because I need to keep working,” said the Fil-Nigerian forward.Some, meanwhile, have it harder as they have a Christmas Day game slated on the schedule.Kiefer Ravena, who was picked second in the 2017 PBA Rookie Draft, already has a grand plan for himself as he seeks to spend some time with his loved ones before making the voyage to the cavernous Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan for NLEX’s tussle against GlobalPort.“We have a game, so I’ll spend the morning with my family. It’s a time for us to enjoy and cherish our loved ones because we all know how unique Christmas is in the Philippines,” he said.Hectic as his day may be, Ravena shared that he still makes it a point to give back to the less fortunate and share his blessings especially during this time of the year.“It’s easy to be good, so it’s better for us to help others and share our blessings to those who have less. I try to do gift-givings to the less fortunate and I think it’s my own way of trying to help each and everybody,” he said. “Again, it’s better to give than to receive so you have to share your blessings.” Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles01:42No Christmas Mass at Notre Dame for first time in two centuries02:14Carpio 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 OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Meralco ‘never the same’ after Almazan injury in PBA Finals “He surprised me. He flew from the United States just to watch me and I’m glad that I was able to play,” said the sixth overall pick as he made his professional debut for the Hotshots despite dealing with a back injury.The same was the case for the speedy Rain or Shine guard Rey Nambatac, who got his Christmas wish as early as October when he was tabbed by the Elasto Painters at seven.“I wasn’t expecting to be picked as early as seven. It was a weird feeling because I really felt I’ll be picked in the latter rounds, but there I was in the middle of the first round,” he said.Some rookies struggled remembering the weird presents they previously got that they just treasure the times whenever they were able to celebrate the holidays with their families, especially now that they are in the PBA.Number three pick Raymar Jose, whose family is in Pontevedra, Negros Occidental, couldn’t help but feel sad as he spends his Christmas all by his lonesome once again, this time due to his obligations with Blackwater.ADVERTISEMENT Brian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defense Hurting Pingris raring to play vs Ginebra on Christmas Scottie Thompson also worthy of Finals MVP, thinks Cone Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina MOST READ Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Redemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie Thompson Fourth overall pick Jeron Teng was left speechless when he was gifted a pillow years back.“Maybe they’re telling me that I need to sleep more,” said the Alaska rookie in Filipino chuckling. “Maybe they want me to have a good night’s sleep.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTS Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkUnexpected gifts are not limited to material things.For Magnolia’s Fil-American rookie Robbie Herndon, his Christmas came early when his father Robert Sr. unexpectedly showed up and watched his first professional game last Wednesday.

PROCMURA-Liberia Chapter’s Anti-Ebola Taskforce Committee over the weekend reached out to vulnerable and most Ebola affected communities’ in Bomi County, with food and non-food items.The items included household disinfectants, several bags of 25kg rice, buckets with faucets, powder soaps and vegetable oil, among others. Beneficiaries included residents of Dorleyla and Dimen towns on the Bomi/Monrovia highway. Dimen Town is the home of celebrated cultural icon, the late Bai T. Moore. Though there were no reports of Ebola outbreak in Dimen, nearby Dorleyla Town was affected, killing at least 19 persons during the height of the outbreak last year.Dorleyla’s town chief, Imam Mohammed Jalieba, and Pastor David Kollie as well as the head of a women’s organization, Famatta Dorley, expressed gratitude to PROCMURA-Liberia.“Your gifts have revived our lost hopes. Therefore, we will distribute them for the benefit of all including those mostly afflicted by the EVD last year,” residents of the two towns assured the PROCMURA leadership.PROCMURA officials informed the beneficiaries that their plights have not been forgotten, and therefore urged them to make good use of the donations.Dr. Benjamin D. Lartey, who led the distribution committee, said the fight against the EVD in the sub-region would succeed only when those in the fight come together to kick the EVD out.He called on the leaders to take the lead in the fight by spreading the necessary awareness and education to complement the Liberian government’s efforts.“This is not the time to score victory against anyone, but to collaborate by forging together in our fight to score victory against the deadly Ebola by driving it from Liberia and the Mano River Basin,” Dr. Lartey asserted.He also called on the people to take ownership of their communities for the protection of the populace against Ebola.PROCMURA is an acronym for Pan-African Christian Organization and it is dedicated to Christian constructive engagement with Muslims to witness, establish mutual tolerance and collaboration towards peace and peaceful co-existence for the holistic development of the human family. It was founded in 1959.It is established in 20 African countries and is visible in an additional 10, the officials said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Following hours of heated and vengeful debates, all pointed at Health & Social Welfare Minister Walter Gwenigale, the Senate on Tuesday, June 3rd, ordered Gwenigale to reinstate, within 72 hours, dismissed leaders of the National Health Workers Association of Liberia (NHWAL).The Senate further mandated the Ministry to ensure that the two leaders be given all benefits enjoyed prior to their dismissal.According to the Senate, Plenary on Tuesday voted 13 for, two against, with four abstentions, to order the reinstatement of NHWAL President Joseph Tamba and his Secretary General George Williams.Minister Gwenigale, who is reportedly out of the country, is also requested to appear before the plenary of the Senate together with his lawyer immediately upon his return to the country, to show reason why he should not be held in contempt for refusing to reinstate the two officials.The Senate’s order was transmitted to the Ministry through the Deputy Minister of Administration, Matthew T.K. Flomo who is currently acting as Minister, and was prompted by the absence of the Minister proper who had earlier been cited to appear before the Senate.But appearing before that august body Tuesday, Deputy Minister Flomo was firstly confronted by Maryland County Senator H. Dan Morias who protested to his colleagues that the Minister was “not properly dressed” (attired). Flomo was wearing a coat suit and a shirt without a neck tie.However, the Senate President, Ambassador Joseph Boakai, who was initially presiding, allowed it to pass as an observation and the session continued.Then came the debate of what decision to take to help nip in the bud, rumors of plans by health workers to resort to another go-slow if their Association’s leaders are not reinstated as agreed at negotiations that led to the workers agreeing to return to work after similar nationwide go-slow early this year. Deputy Minister Flomo informed the Senators that the decision by Minister Gwenigale to reinstate 20 of the 22 dismissed health workers and leaving out the president and his secretary general was as a result of their role in the health workers’ go-slow.“The Minister of Health formally wrote the two individuals informing them of their permanent dismissal from the Ministry; a copy of that communication was served the Civil Service Agency (CSA). As I stand here now I may not be in the position to tell you exactly the reason why the Minister has not been able to reinstate the two persons in question, the Acting Minister said.”For his part, Gbarpolu County Senator Armah Jallah reminded Deputy Minister Flomo about the gentleman’s agreement with the NHWAL that ended the go-slow, and asked whether Minister Gwenigale remembers said agreement.“It seems like the Ministry is being run by one person, because if the Ministry were run by a team, probably the acting Minister would not have acted in the manner he did,” Senator Jallah stressed.Bomi County Senator Sando Dazoe Johnson referred to Minister Gwenigale as very ‘stubborn and arrogant’ person, “and that it is his arrogance that got us where we are. And we at the Senate will not tolerate that; we cannot allow one Minister to be law and gospel unto himself. The Ministry of Health was created by the National Legislature; until the Senate takes a decision and be very firm on it, this Minister of Health will continue to disrespect us.”Senator Johnson continued: “Mr. Vice President, you are the second person in command in this country, we urge you to do all you can, because the Minister has made it clear that the President (Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf) is supporting him not to reinstate these people; you have to find out from the President whether she is the one supporting Minister Gwenigale, if she is the one that is making Minister Gwenigale to be stubborn, then we must know that and take the appropriate action.”At the end of the barrage of condemnations and other suggestions, aging and outgoing Grand Kru County Senator Cletus Segbe Wotorson proffered the motion that was voted on 13 for, with two against and four abstentions to give the dismissed health workers leaders their jobs back with full benefits.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
The office of the Auditor General of Liberia wishes to clarify that a ‘letter’ dated July 11, 2019 from purported aggrieved employees of the General Auditing Commission (GAC), which is being circulated on social media, and discussed on Joy FM on the aforementioned date on the subject of salary harmonization has not been received by her office.The Auditor’s Office described such radio discussion and social media post as far from the truth, and a complete misrepresentation of the core values of the GAC, a release from the agency said.A GAC statement issued in Monrovia Friday, July 12, 2019 emphasized that at no time has the Auditor General Yusador S. Gaye, or anyone from her senior management team formally or informally engaged any staff of the Commission’s “salary harmonization,” or the draft national budget that has been submitted to members of the 54th Legislature.The Auditor General emphatically states that she is aware that the national budget is a draft, and that she is a well capacitated position to make a formal representation on behalf of her staff when necessary through the proper channel, and not surreptitious means as in the case of the letter being circulated.Madam Gaye said that she will not condone any action that brings the Commission and any effort of the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning to public disrepute by such “cowardly means.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) – Advertisement – Madam Yusador Gaye, Auditor General of Liberia.
Pledging continuous support for development of the rodeo and facilities associated with its staging, the Government of Guyana, represented by State Minister Joseph Harmon and Vice President and Minister of Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs, Sydney Allicock, on Saturday handed over million to the Rupununi Rodeo Committee.And Harmon, addressing the opening of the Annual Rupununi Ranchers Easter Rodeo at Lethem, declared the event one of great significance, not only to theState Minister Joseph Harmon and Vice President Sydney Allicock presenting the cheque to Executive Member of the Rupununi Rodeo Committee, Rebecca Fariaresidents of that region, but to the country as a whole.Noting that the event is one which attracts hundreds from across the country, the continent of South America and further afield, Harmon said Government is committed to ensuring that the Rodeo Committee is supported in its expansion and improvement efforts.Announcing that Government would be working with the Guyana Lands and Surveys Commission (GLSC) and the Rodeo Committee to earmark more space to accommodate the event, Harmon declared: “This event has grown to international stature, with persons coming from Suriname and French Guiana to be a part of what is happening here. What we would like to assure you is that the administration of [President] Granger gives full support to the development of these activities.“I want to assure you that we are having discussions with a view to ensuring that more land is provided so that we can have a bigger venue and we can have international standards here at this rodeo. When we celebrate rodeo, we celebrate the life that is Guyana — the life of the Rupununi. The hinterland, of which the Rupununi is a part, is a part of our fabric, and we want to ensure that every portion of that fabric is well stitched and mended together,” Harmon said.Minister Allicock, in brief remarks, echoed similar sentiments as Minister Harmon’s. He noted that the event has now become a significant calendar activity and provides the ideal opportunity to showcase the talents of the vaqueros in theOne of the young cowgirls showing the audience her horse riding skills in the ring at the Rupununi Rodeoregion.“This is our life; this is us. We are the Rupununi. We are the riders, we are the performers, and I am so happy to see this here today. You can be assured that we are going to continue giving you our support as we seek to create the good life for all,” he assured.Lethem Mayor Carlton Beckles said the event has grown significantly over the years, and with added support from Government, is expected to achieve further growth. “I am proud that we are hosting Rodeo this year with Lethem being a township. Lethem is the home to Rodeo, and we will continue to be a part of this rodeo. This rodeo can only get better in the coming years,” he said. The event kicks off on the Saturday before Easter each year, and continues until Easter Monday, with daytime activities like wild bull riding, horse racing, wild cow milking, wild horse riding, a female barrel race and steer roping among other exhilarating events. In recent times, a Miss Rupununi Rodeo beauty pageant has been added, featuring beauties from the Region and from neighbouring Brazil.
In a Jan. 25 story about the death of actor Chris Penn, The Associated Press erroneously reported that a quote by critic Cintra Wilson came from a Slate magazine article. The article appeared on Salon.com. An article last Wednesday incorrectly reported that an alliance of nonprofit groups including the Center for Law in the Public Interest recently received a $1 million donation from developer Richard Meruelo. The alliance has not received a $1 million donation from Meruelo although discussions had taken place about such a contribution.

A man has been arrested in connection with the theft of a senior Garda’s phone from Letterkenny District Court last week.The man, who was in his 50s and from Lybia, appeared in court on traffic offenses. The case was struck out after the court was satisfied that the man had previously sold the car on to another man before the alleged offenses happened.The man thanked the court and remarked to Judge Paul Kelly that he loved Donegal and said it has “very nice people.”The man, who lives in Dublin, told the court that he was being driven home by his daughter who was also in court.However, a short time after the man left court, a senior Garda noticed his phone was missing.CCTV footage of the courtroom was later viewed and Gardai visited the man at his home in Balinteer in south Dublin.The Garda’s phone was found in the man’s car and he was later arrested.However, the man is understood to have complained of chest pains and was admitted to hospital.A Garda source said the man will be interviewed in relation to the alleged theft at a later stage.Man arrested after theft of Garda’s phone from courtroom was last modified: July 8th, 2018 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:arrestcourtdonegalphonetheft

(PHOTO/Courtesy)CECAFA U20 Championships Uganda vs SudanPece Stadium, Gulu Wednesday, 25-08-2019 @4pmThe Uganda U20 Men’s national football team, the Hippos will be hoping to seal top spot when they take on Sudan at the Pece Stadium in Gulu on Wednesday afternoon.After a disappointing 1-1 draw with Eritrea in their opening game, Morley Byekwaso’s side bounced back by thumping Djibouti 5-1 on Monday.It was a much needed victory for the Hippos and one that sees them sit second of Group A with 4 points, level with leaders Sudan.With the Sudanese scoring 7 goals against Uganda’s 6, they currently enjoy top spot.Wednesday’s encounter will be a test for Uganda’s progression ever since the tournament started.With Eritrea two points behind in third, a loss for either Uganda or Sudan may see them fall from the automatic quarterfinal qualifying slot, a scenario they will be looking to avoid.“Our target is to once again register all three points, noted Hippos head coach Morley Byekwaso ahead of the game.“After the opening draw, the boys bounced back with a strong performance and ensured we won the second game.“It (win) has built their confidence levels and i am sure they will be gunning for more on Wednesday.“Sudan has put them selves in a picture as one of the better sides in the competition and will surely pose serious questions but I am not worried because my team has it in them to overcome any obstacle.”In the second game, Byekwaso made two changes to the team that had drawn 1-1 with Djibouti.The KCCA FC assistant coach started both Steven Sserwadda and Ivan Asaba in place of Isma Mugulusi and Sadat Anaku. It was a masterstroke of sorts as Sserwadda scored two of the goals and Muguluso came off the bench to put his name onto the score sheet.With striker Ivan Bogere looking sharp upfront after scoring once in each of the two games, he is expected to continue leading the line upfront.Sserwadda and Mugulusi will provide the width alongside Bogere in a three man attack.If Bogere decides to tinker with his midfield, Bright Anukani who came off the bench against Djibouti is the one expected to come in for Yiga Najib.For Sudan, they have so far defeated Djibouti and drawn with Eritrea.The other group A game will see Djibouti take on Eritrea at 1pm on the same day.Hippos projected starting XIDenis Otim (1), Justine Opiro (17), Kayondo Aziz Abdul(3), Derrick Kigundu (13), Gavin Kizito (5), Kenneth Semakula (4), Hassan Senyonjo (12), Najib Yiga (7), Isma Mugulusi (15), Ivan Bogere (9), Steven Sserwadda (8)Comments
