Lady Tamaraws send Tigresses reeling to third straight loss

first_imgGALLERY: Barangay Ginebra back as PBA Governors’ Cup kings Westbrook spearheads Thunder rally past Suns It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson FEU head coach George Pascua hoped his team can sustain their momentum for seven more games as he knows that the second round will be a little different than the first round.“Hopefully we still have the momentum in the next seven games,” said Pascua in Filipino. “We still have a long road ahead of us, and after the first round all the teams have scouted each other.”Pascua also commended his team’s minimal errors as the Lady Tamaraws’ gave away just 17 free points compared to 32 from their last game against National University.“That’s an achievement for us because if we minimize our errors we know that the win will come easier for us,” said Pascua.Basas and Celine Domingo led FEU with eight points apiece while Bernadeth Pons and Kyle Negrito combined for 14 points.ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew MOST READ UK plans Brexit celebrations but warns businesses may suffer LATEST STORIES 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 Sea turtle trapped in net freed in Legazpi City Cherry Rondina led the Golden Tigresses with 11 points but her offensive output against FEU was a far cry from her 23.33 points-per-game average prior to facing the Lady Tamaraws.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina FEU Lady Tamaraws vs UST Tigresses.

Reconstruction plans finalised – Director

first_imgCamp Street Prison…facility to get 60 steel cellsOn the heels of the anniversary of the devastating Camp Street Prison fire and riot, Prison Director Gladwin Samuels on Friday confirmed that the re-construction details of the Georgetown penitentiary have been finalised.Speaking to the media on Friday, Samuels said efforts are being made for the speedy reconstruction of the facility.“…the method that we’re using for the re-construction of the Camp Street [Prison] for the accommodation of prisoners will be done using three parts. These will be done with the use of pre-fabricated cells… We have recently finalised all of the construction details for those cells. So, steel cells should commence… will be delivered to Guyana within 2018,” he explained.According to the Prison Director, upon reconstruction, the facility will accommodateAn aerial view of the burnt out Camp Street Prisona total of 60 new steel cells, which is expected to house some 180 “hard-code criminals”.“Sixty cells have [to be] constructed. Twenty cells will be allotted to each part as the divisions are called, and each cell will accommodate three prisoners so that the facility they will be constructing initially will accommodate 180 prisoners. Those prisoners, based on our segregation, we will be looking at the high-risk prisoners to be relocated there,” he asserted.Samuels further revealed that prison officials are in the process of finding suitable contractors to complete the rehabilitation works.“All things being equal, we should be going to tender at the end of this month, we should be going to tender at the end of this month in order to have those works allocated to the suitable contractors in order to have those works executed,” he noted. Meanwhile, he also mentioned that the expansion of the Mazaruni Prison is moving full steam ahead.Some $1.5 billion was awarded in the 2018 Budget for the expansion and rehabilitation of the prison infrastructure.The Camp Street Prison was completely flattened by fire on July 9 which left one prison officer dead and several others injured.During the fire, four convicts – Uree Varswyck, also called “Malcolm Gordon”; Mark Royden Durant, also called “Royden Williams” and “Smallie”; Cobena Stephens, also known as “OJ”; and Paul Goriah escaped.On March 3, 2016, 17 prisoners died at the same prison after a fire was set during hours of unrest at the major prison facility.last_img read more

Revised List of Electors includes unverified ‘new’ registrants

first_imgH2H muddle…over 650,000 voters on listThe Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) has made a decision to go ahead with the publishing of the Revised List of Electors (RLE) without any additional field verification for those persons that could not be found during the recent verification exercise.GECOM Chair, Retired Justice Claudette SinghThis was confirmed on Tuesday by GECOM Public Relations Officer Yolanda Ward, who revealed that the list is already available on their website. She also noted that persons can check and visit GECOM offices in their area with their “pink slip” (slip given during registration) to make any necessary changes.“The posting of the RLE in the field will commence very shortly. That is expected to conclude on January 4, 2020. So before the end (Tuesday), the PDF version of the RLE will be available on GECOM’s website,” she informed this publication.“The RLE has been posted for any public scrutiny and to correct any information within the 21 days’ period. Therefore, where changes were not made, persons should visit the registration office in their area with the ‘pink slip’ from 4th January to inform and update accordingly. The final product would be in the Official List of Electors,” Ward subsequently explained.It is understood that the Revised List of Electors contains a total of 661,378 names. According to Ward, the RLE will contain everyone captured during the Claims and Objections and the house-to-house verification.GECOM Commissioner Sase GunrajIt will also include the over 16,000 names from house-to-house that were flagged and led to GECOM launching a 5-day field exercise to verify them. Some of those persons were not found; however, they will be included.When contacted, Government-nominated Commissioner Charles Corbin declined to comment on the issue. However, at least one GECOM Commissioner voiced his disapproval. According to Opposition-nominated Commissioner Sase Gunraj, while he does not agree with the move, steps will be taken to have these names monitored on Election Day.“I felt that the persons who were not verified should not be on the RLE. But what is going to happen, notwithstanding the fact the Chairman has overruled that, we are putting in place a system where those people will be flagged on polling day…by a mechanism yet to be determined,” Gunraj said.The over 16,000 ‘new’ registrants were captured during the House-to-House (H2H) exercise that ran from July 20 to August 31, 2019. However, the Opposition – People’s Progressive Party (PPP) – has always contended that the H2H exercise was largely unsupervised and would produce flawed results.Indeed, the Party subsequently found that many of the persons listed as new registrants are either dead or were previously registered. The concern that has been expressed is that this could be the gateway to fraudulent voting and election rigging.It had previously been announced that over 6500 persons of the 16,863 ‘new’ registrants were not confirmed during the five-day field verification exercise which concluded on December 22. Figures released to the media the next day had shown that Region Four (Demerara-Mahaica) had the highest number of unconfirmed persons, which tallied to 3657.According to GECOM, there were 16,863 ‘new’ registrants but only 10,329 were confirmed.Opposition-nominated Commissioner Robeson Benn told this publication last week that field officers who conducted the verification exercise of “new registrants” captured during the scrapped H2H process have found empty lots at the addresses on record for those persons.He told Guyana Times that they were informed by the Party’s scrutineers who worked along with the GECOM staff during the exercise that there were instances where they went to the addresses to verify the names and were met with empty lots.Some 370,000 registrations obtained during the scrapped $3 billion H2H exercise were sent overseas to be cross-matched with the National Register of Registrants Database (NRRD) in order to filter out the duplicates.Only on Monday, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo said that the Party is willing to do a second round of verification to ensure a credible voters’ list come March 2020.last_img read more

Teen shot while waiting for school bus

first_imgWEST WHITTIER – After being hit by a shotgun blast while sitting at a bus stop Wednesday morning, a 16-year-old boy got onto the bus and rode to school, police and school officials said. Wednesday afternoon, police arrested a suspect in the shooting, a 17-year-old boy described by sheriff’s officials as a known gang member. The shooting occurred about 7:30 a.m. at the bus stop at Norwalk Boulevard and Mines Avenue. That’s where the victim was waiting for his ride to school when the gunman approached, Sheriff’s Department officials said. “He rolled up on a bicycle with a shotgun,” said Sgt. Eric Giambalvo of the sheriff’s Operation Safe Streets anti-gang unit. “He shot him and took off.” The 16-year-old was hit in the back with shotgun pellets. County Fire Department rescuers airlifted him to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, where he was in stable condition Wednesday, authorities said. At the shooting scene, several residents said they heard a gunshot and screaming. One neighbor called Frontier High School and reported that a boy had been shot, had boarded the bus and was on his way to the school, officials said. The boy, whom police did not identify because he is a minor, got off the bus at Frontier High and was met by security guards. “He made no report to the bus driver,” said Frontier High School Principal Gabe Moorman. Officials asked the teen if he was OK and he did not respond. They said the teen was reluctant to talk about the shooting. Sheriff’s Pico Rivera Station Sgt. Della Walls said deputies received a call that shots had been fired at the bus stop. “We responded there, and there was nothing,” she said. Witnesses told sheriff’s officials that the shooter wore a green sweat shirt and black pants. Two gang detectives later spotted a teen who matched the description of the suspect walking around in the area, Giambalvo said. They searched his unincorporated West Whittier home and recovered a shotgun, he said. Giambalvo said the suspected shooter is a known gang member. But he did not say what the motive may have been for the shooting. Detectives interviewed the suspect Wednesday afternoon at the Pico Rivera Station. Investigators expect to file charges against him Friday. They hope to charge him as an adult, Giambalvo said. sandy.mazza@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Community Services bylaw to be amended

first_imgThe event moved to the Pomeroy Sports Centre in 2010. Organizers of the Show indicated to Council previously that the City’s benefits-based approach to calculating fees, however, has caused increases and their 2016 full seven day facility rental fees were $48,541.50. A seven-day exclusive rental agreements would qualify for a reduction of 14.29 per cent off of the full facility rental. As an example, for the CKNL Trade Show, this discount would be $6,934.50.As noted further in the report, it’s not uncommon for cities to provide discounts for longer term rentals, or a reduced fee for set-up and tear-down days.The City of Vernon is used as an example, for offering a 50 per cent discount to the normal daily rental fees for days set for set-up and tear-down.The CKNL Trade Show runs this year from April 8 – 10 at the Pomeroy Sports Centre.Advertisement FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Council is expected to adopt changes to a Community Services bylaw at their next meeting on Feb 22, 2016.The amendment calls for the addition of a ruling for week-long events, in the same category as non-prime time rentals and spring and summer ice rentals.This move comes after Council received a report from Administration a year ago, informing them the CKNL Trade Show was asking for a discounted fee for events week-long events. Staff members was directed to the Trade Show’s facility use fees by $8,825.13.- Advertisement -The final amended fee was $37,562.12, plus GST. Following this, staff reviewed the Fees and Charges Bylaw on the feasibility of establishing a weekly discounted fee for longer events.Adding week-long events to the bylaw means events that rent the entire facility, and are seven consecutive days in duration, can receive a discount for one day of rental at the facility for free.The Administrative report states the CKNL Trade Show has generated significant revenue for the City in terms of business licence and rental fees — which is estimated to be more than $300,000 over its 43 year period.Advertisementlast_img read more

Sheff Wednesday 1-1 Huddersfield (3-4 pens): Terriers book play-off final spot

first_img1 Danny Ward was the Huddersfield hero as the Terriers booked their place in the Championship play-off final with a dramatic penalty shoot-out win over Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.Ward saved spot-kicks from Sam Hutchinson then crucially from Fernando Forestieri to send his side through 4-3 on penalties after the sides had finished 120 minutes locked together at 1-1.In the dramatic finale, Terriers substitute Jack Payne had missed the chance to win it when his penalty was saved by Keiren Westwood – only for Ward to block Forestieri’s effort and book a final clash with Reading.Steven Fletcher had converted a cross from Barry Bannan to head Wednesday into a 51st minute lead but the visitors drew level 12 minutes later when a cross by substitute Collin Quaner was turned into his own net by Tom Lees.The late finish was hardly surprising, given the two sides could not be split over the course of the regular Championship season – nor again in last week’s first-leg stalemate.Izzy Brown had the best chance to break the deadlock in a first half in which tension on both sides kept clear-cut opportunities to a minimum.Brown should have done better when he met a left-wing cross from Wells in the centre of the box but swept his low, left-foot shot inches wide of target.Wednesday, forced into a change when Adam Reach replaced the injured Ross Wallace inside the opening 10 minutes, had marginally the better of the early play.Fletcher had a shot blocked at close-range by Terriers captain Tommy Smith then substitute Reach hit his shot on the turn straight at Ward.The visitors seemed much more content to sit back and wait for their opening and it came on 20 minutes when Wells burst clear down the left only for Brown to mis-fire in front of goal.Wednesday might have made their opponents pay nine minutes later when a long ball from Bannan found Fletcher in the box but the Scot fluffed his lay-off to the unmarked Forestieri.Wells had a penalty claim waved away by referee Andre Marriner in the 38th minutes after being brushed off the ball by Wednesday keeper Westwood.Wednesday looked brighter after the break and got their reward within five minutes after a move which initially appeared to have petered out on the edge of the box.Fletcher played the ball back out where it was retrieved by Bannan, whose deep cross back in to the far post found the Scot who steered a perfectly-poised header beyond Ward’s grasp.Elias Kachunga blazed high and wide eight minutes later and Wagner replaced the German with his compatriot Quaner in the 71st minute, with an immediate positive effect.Quaner picked up a ball from Rajiv van la Parra on the right side of the Wednesday box and his cross was poked into his own net by Lees under pressure from Wells.Westwood came to Wednesday’s rescue as he twice denied Wells in the last five minutes of normal time, first blocking a shot set up by Quaner, then pouncing again as the striker hesitated over a through-ball.Under pressure for much of the second period, Wednesday had the best of the first period of extra-time, with Jordan Rhodes driving a low shot straight at Ward and Chris Schindler getting in a crucial block to deny Forestieri.Quaner lashed a shot into the side-netting early in the second period and Rhodes flashed a header just wide at the other end before Marriner signalled the inevitable spot-kicks.Ward saved early from Sam Hutchinson and after Terriers substitute Payne missed the chance to win it for his wide, the keeper stepped up again to deny Forestieri and spark jubilant scenes among the visiting players and fans.
