  • ‘Sobrang bitin’: Brief Gilas stint leaves Arwind Santos wanting for more

    first_imgJapeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netArwind Santos waited nearly a decade before getting his chance to suit up for the Philippine team again but his return didn’t turn out the way he wanted it to be.Santos entered the game in the second quarter and saw action for only four minutes and 10 seconds in Gilas Pilipinas’ 78-70 loss to Iran in the Fiba World Cup Asian qualifiers.ADVERTISEMENT The San Miguel Beermen star lamented not being able to help his team in the endgame, a point in the game where where he feels he usually thrives in.“Nag-expect ako na makakabalik ako kahit saglit nung 3rd saka 4th quarter. Pero hindi ako nakabalik, lalo na yung mga ganung crucial pukpukan, parang alam mo yun, sanay ako sa ganun eh. Kahit papaano, defense tsaka sa offense yung mga crucial shots. Isa rin yon sa gusto ko,” said Santos, who also cleared has no hard feelings towards head coach Yeng Guiao, whom he has high respect for. (I expected to play even for just a short period of time in the third and fourth quarter but I never came back especially in the crucial stages where I’m used to playing and somehow play defense and on offense hit crucial shots which is also one of the things I like doing.)The 37-year-old Santos, though, remains grateful for the rare opportunity to play for the country despite the outcome. He is also hoping his second tour of duty won’t be his last.ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college “Ako talagang bukas ang pintuan ko dun.

  • High crime rate? Police say serious crime down by 16%

    first_img– 58 people killed on Guyana’s roadsThe Guyana Police Force (GPF) on Monday stated that it has recorded a 16 per cent decrease in serious crimesSuperintendentJairam Ramlakhanat the end of May this year when compared to the same period last year.The Police also highlighted that there was a seven per cent reduction in reports of murder, a 10 per cent decrease in gun-related robberies, and a seven per cent decrease in armed robberies where other instruments were used by the perpetrators.In addition, a 26 per cent decrease was recorded in robberies with violence, a 14 per cent decrease in robberies with aggravation, a 27 per cent combined decrease in break-and-enter-and-larceny and burglary and a 14 per cent decrease in rape.There was also a 52 per cent decrease in larceny from the person. Robberies where guns or other instruments were not used showed an increase of 17 per cent.Police spokesman, Superintendent Jairam Ramlakhan highlighted that the decrease in the crime rate was no doubt as a result of the initiatives taken by the Government of Guyana, the Public Security Ministry and the Police Force to de-escalate the crime situation.He added that the Police were increasingly gaining the public’s trust thus resulting in a higher level of information sharing and the solving and prevention of serious crimes, inclusive of murder. Exposure to training, both locally and internationally, continues to be a top priority at all levels of the Force, the Police spokesman noted.In respect to traffic, the Police Force has recorded an increase in road fatalities. “We have recorded 58 fatalities at the end of May this year, which are 14 more than the same period last year.”The Police in a statement noted that while there was a reduction in serious accidents, there have been again increases in minor and damage accidents.In addition, the Police are cognisant of the fact that speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol and inattentiveness continue to be the main causes of fatal accidents.Thus far, the Police have charged 30,788 persons with traffic offences up to May 31, 2016. This includes 11,302 for speeding and 839 for driving under the influence.The Police Force thanked all of its ranks who have worked to the best of their abilities and in some cases beyond the call of duty during Guyana’s 50th Independence Anniversary celebrations.last_img read more

  • U19 Hockey Boys Camp concludes

    first_img‒ prep continues for 2020 Junior Pan Am C/shipsThirty-six young hockey players were fortunate enough to have participate a part of a developmental camp which would have sought to improve their skills and talents. The two-week camp was conducted during the August holidays, because the participants are Under 19 and the time-off from school would ensure their commitment to this program.The camp focused on the individual techniques required to execute skills such as elimination, defending, passing and receiving, two versus one, goal-keeping and penalty corners.The two-week initiative was spearheaded by National Hockey Coach Robert Fernandes, who received assistance from Jamarj Assanah, a member of the senior National Team.According to the coordinators, the camp is the first step towards identifying a group of players who will make up the national junior squad which is scheduled to commence training shortly for the 2020 Junior Pan American Championships.Speaking on the talent they have witnessed, National Coach Fernandes noted that he is excited to continue working with the bunch for various reasons.“I think the camp was a great success. Although some of the players may not have the skills needed at the moment, those things can be learned.“What I did see was an abundance of astonishing athleticism and internally motivated individuals who have exhibited a hunger to become exceptional; those are things you can’t teach people. This makes me very excited to work with this group over the next two years,” the coach said.In an attempt to assess what was learnt during the two-week activity, the teenage participants were involved in a mini- tournament on the final day, and were later treated to lunch compliments of Antonio’s Grille.The National Junior boys training team is scheduled to be selected in a short matter of time, the Junior Women’s programme is also scheduled to commence sometime in the near future.last_img read more

  • Baghdad’s Green Zone hit by mortar rounds

    first_imgThe Iraqi army’s toll was still well below the 104 American troops who died last month. The mounting casualties among American and Iraqi troops comes as they are exposed to more dangers trying to regain control of Baghdad. Also, U.S. and Iraqi officials chased reports Tuesday that the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq was killed by rivals north of Baghdad. But U.S. authorities urged caution and warned that even if the claim were true, the death of the shadowy Abu Ayyub al-Masri would likely not spell the end of the terror movement in Iraq. Reports of al-Masri’s death first emerged from the Interior Ministry, which said the al-Qaida leader was gunned down by rivals in his movement Tuesday at a bridge near Lake Tharthar just north of Baghdad, where the U.S. military believes al-Qaida operates training camps. Later, however, ministry spokesman Brig. Gen. Abdul-Karim Khalaf said al-Masri’s death had not been confirmed.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! BAGHDAD – Mortar rounds crashed into the U.S.-controlled Green Zone on Tuesday – the second such barrage in a 12-hour span – and gunmen ambushed Shiite travelers as part of attacks that killed at least 44 people nationwide. One of the mortars hit within 100 yards of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s office, an Iraqi official said. The U.S. military reported no casualties in the two attacks. Although such strikes on the Green Zone have been common, the latest occurred despite the ongoing U.S.-led security crackdown and suggested that extremists have not been daunted by the nearly 11-week operation. The attacks appeared to come from a mostly Shiite district. In areas outside Baghdad, roads were stalked by suspected Sunni gunmen. At least 11 Shiites were killed and three wounded after attackers flagged down their bus near Iskandariyah, 30 miles south of Baghdad. About 45 minutes later, gunmen opened fire on civilian cars about six miles to the north near Latifiyah, killing three people and wounding five, police said. Elsewhere, suspected Sunni militants seized four fuel-tanker trucks near Fallujah, 40 miles west of Baghdad, and killed the four drivers, police said. At least 23 tortured bodies also were found around Iraq – 15 in Baghdad – the apparent victims of so-called sectarian death squads. Despite the ongoing bloodshed, figures compiled Tuesday from Iraqi government reports show that the number of Iraqi civilian deaths fell nearly 20 percent, from 1,872 in March to 1,501 in April. The number of wounded also decreased – from 2,702 to 2,334 in the same period. The death toll for Iraqi soldiers, however, rose sharply to 63, compared with 44 in March. last_img read more

  • Russians, foreigners seek love at World Cup

    first_img0Shares0000Moscow’s World Cup fan zone, built on the doorstep of the city’s iconic main university, has become a “flirt zone,” joked the free Russian paper Metro © AFP/File / Maxim ZMEYEVMOSCOW, Russian Federation, Jun 19 – During an afternoon at a Moscow park, Argentina fan Augustin Otelo is counting not the number of goals his team has scored in the World Cup but the number of phone numbers he has collected from Russian girls.“Four!” boasts the 26-year-old engineer dressed in his country’s blue and white stripes as he competes with his friends to see who can get the most phone numbers. Otelo said he hopes his “exotic factor” will help him “find love” in the Russian capital.“We don’t know what to do between matches, so we thought we could try to get to know the Russian people better,” he said.The Argentinians are flicking through selfies on their phones of Russian girls posing on the popular dating app Tinder.“There’s a lot of competition because of the number of men who have come to Russia for the World Cup,” Otelo said.“And very few girls speak English or Spanish.”But the language barrier has not stopped Russians and thousands of foreign football fans from mixing on the streets of Moscow, despite conflicting messages to Russia’s female population from politicians.On the eve of the World Cup, Communist lawmaker Tamara Pletneva warned Russian women that flings with visiting football fans could leave them raising children “of another race” alone.“We should be giving birth to our own children,” said Pletneva, who leads the lower house of parliament’s family, women and children committee.The Kremlin said World Cup romances are personal choices © AFP/File / Mladen ANTONOVAnother Russian MP, Mikhail Degtyaryov from the ultra-nationalist LDPR party, took the opposite view.“The more love stories we have connected to the World Cup… the more children are born, the better,” he said.The Kremlin said World Cup romances are personal choices.“Russian women can probably manage their own affairs. They are the best women in the world,” Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.– ‘Like holiday romances’ –One 25-year-old woman, who gave her name as Maria S., said she had been “impatiently” waiting for the World Cup because it “multiplies opportunities to meet with foreigners.”“That is probably its main advantage,” said the brunette, who took English classes ahead of the games.Her friend, Lyubov, who speaks three languages aside from Russian fluently, called the World Cup an “asset”.“Usually I have two dates a week and now I have four. I have to say no to some,” the young woman said, delighted.Neither of the two friends has any illusions about the fact that their dates will return to their home countries when the World Cup ends.“It’s a bit like holiday romances, except that we will stay here,” regrets Lyubov.Aside from her romantic endeavours, Maria has tasked herself with another mission: to “change Russia’s image.”“Tourists come here with cliches in their heads. I think they expect to see easy women dressed provocatively. I would like to change this cliche,” the arts student said.In May, the Argentinian Football Association published a manual offering tips on “how to get lucky with a Russian girl.” It was widely condemned as sexist and the federation’s head later apologised for it.– ‘Flirt zone’ –Moscow’s World Cup fan zone, built on the doorstep of the city’s iconic main university, has become a “flirt zone,” joked the free Russian paper Metro.When a Brazil fan kissed the paper’s young correspondent on the cheek, it said, his compatriot joked: “It’s OK: he wants you in his bed like everyone else.”For older Russians, such romances are reminiscent of other major international events in Moscow, such as the 1980 Olympic Games hosted by the USSR during the Cold War.Pletneva, the Communist lawmaker, said the Games were followed by an uptick of births of mixed race children which she called “a sad example.”Yelena, 51, remembers the 1985 International Youth Festival in Moscow, when she fell in love with Giorgos, a young Greek man.“We were 19, we spent three days together and then he left. We wrote to each other for several months: I had to ask my friend to translate his letters from English. Then we stopped,” she remembers.“Today there are new technologies, it’s not the USSR anymore and it is easy to travel,” she said.“The young people who meet each other at the World Cup can stay together.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

  • Half-time: Brentford 0 Sheffield Wednesday 1

    first_imgAtdhe Nuhiu fired Sheffield Wednesday ahead from the penalty spot on 36 minutes at Griffin Park after James Tarkowski had been sent off for fouling him in the box.Tarkowski, back in the Brentford side after a calf injury, bundled Nuhiu over as the Austrian striker shaped to shoot and referee Geoff Eltringham red-carded him after consulting his assistant.Wednesday had been the better team, with Nuhiu heading Ross Wallace’s right-wing corner against the bar, having seen an earlier header saved by Brentford keeper David Button and another drift narrowly wide.Wallace tormented Fulham at Hillsborough last weekend and his left-footed deliveries from the right flank have been a major problem for the Bees so far.And Barry Bannan created a chance for Wednesday from the opposite side, sending in a superb cross towards the far post, where Marco Matias was just unable to apply the finish with a diving header.The hosts eventually enjoyed a spell of pressure, with Marco Djuricin slicing wide from a corner by Alan Judge, who then crossed from the right for Jake Bidwell to volley over.However, just as Brentford appeared to be growing in confidence, they found themselves a goal behind and down to 10 men.Brentford: Button; Clarke, Dean, Tarkowski, Bidwell; McCormack, Diagouraga; Vibe, Kerschbaumer (O’Connell 41), Judge; Djuricin.Subs: Bonham, Woods, Yennaris, Barbet, Udumaga, Canos.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
