Messi then cued an attack with a through pass for Denis Suarez, whose cross was turned into his own net by Sporting defender Jeremy Mathieu in stoppage time.Messi recently said that at age 30 he understands that “the season is long and you have to take care of yourself.” He also didn’t start Barcelona’s 0-0 draw at Juventus two weeks ago, and was used as a second-half substitute.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk“We always think that Messi can change the match and make us play better,” Valverde said about the improvement in his team after Messi went on. “We know that our attack flows through him, thanks to his finishing touch and his ability to start our attacks. He sees passes nobody else does.”The Spanish side also confirmed its new-found strength under Valverde of disheartening rivals with an ironclad defense. Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ But Juventus won in Greece 2-0 and advanced as the second-place finisher.Sporting will move onto the Europa League as the third-place finisher.“We put in a good tournament in what was a difficult group,” Sporting defender Cristiano Piccini said. “We caused teams like Barcelona and Juventus some difficulties, showed we are a solid side and one that can compete with any team.”Barcelona increased its unbeaten run to 22 matches in all competitions this season, and 24 home matches inthe Champions League, a streak that started in 2013.Sporting coach Jorge Jesus reinforced his attack with Bas Dost and Gelson Martins at halftime, but after an initial reaction by the visitors it was Alcacer who put Barcelona in front when he sliced his header in from the near post for his first career goal in the competition.“I am having a good season and making the most of the playing time I get,” Alcacer said after notching his fifth goal in 10 appearances in this campaign.Dost had a great chance to equalize three minutes later, only for Cillessen to deny his pointblank attempt with a reflex save.Messi almost got a goal late but Sporting’s Rui Patricio dived to palm away his shot.Barcelona right back Nelson Semedo will miss the first leg of the last 16 tie for an accumulation of bookings after picking up a yellow card late in the first half. Neymar may have taken his irreplaceable verve out of Barcelona’s arsenal when he bolted for Paris-Saint Germain last summer, but Valverde has grasped the opportunity to focus on his team’s defense.Barcelona conceded only once in all six of its group games, and it shares the top defense in the Spanish league along with Atletico Madrid, with seven goals conceded through 14 rounds.As Valverde put it on Tuesday, he wants his team to “dominate games while creating scoring chances.”With Barcelona already qualified for the knockout rounds as Group D winner, Valverde gave starts to severalplayers he normally uses as backups. Besides Alcacer and Suarez, Andre Gomes, Thomas Vermaelen, Lucas Digne, Aleix Vidal, and goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen also started.Sporting needed to beat the Spanish side and hope Juventus didn’t win at Olympiakos to make the last 16.ADVERTISEMENT UCLA coach Alford surprised by LiAngelo Ball leaving school Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

They’ve proven they can win on someone else’s floor, no matter if it’s through adversity as people may call it like when they were going through the Rockets series or whatever the case may be.”It’s often been said, even by James himself, that a series doesn’t really start until one team wins on the other’s home floor.

Only four teams have ever wasted a 2-0 lead in the finals — and Golden State is one of them, letting a championship ring slip away against James and the Cavaliers two years ago.The series shifts to Cleveland for Game 3 on Wednesday night. James looked exhausted when Game 2 was over, but he’ll be somewhat rested by then. And he will most definitely be fueled by a boisterous home crowd that will want to both give him an immediate lift — and make one last series of impressions before he goes into free agency and considers leaving the Cavaliers again next month. The Warriors led 2-0 and 3-1 in 2016. This is not the same Golden State team (Kevin Durant helps). This is not the same Cleveland team (Kyrie Irving would really help). But the Warriors would be foolish to not remember that series, not to remember the ultimate cautionary tale.They’re saying all the right things.“It’s nothing to feel happy about being up 2-0,” Warriors guard Klay Thompson said. “This (Cleveland) team plays great at home and we expect their other guys to play better at home too, not just LeBron. So we’re not going to relax at all because this team’s been down and out before and counted out by the media. We’re not going to focus on that. We’re just going to focus on what we can do to win Game 3.”This series at times has been the Cavaliers versus the cavalier.Golden State was fortunate to win Game 1, and realized as such. The Warriors should have been up much bigger than 13 at halftime of Game 2, and found themselves in a dogfight instead of a victory lap in the third quarter when the Cavs got within five on a number of occasions.It took things like JaVale McGee going 6 for 6 and David West stepping up in a critical late-third-quarter moment to hit his first 3-pointer in seven months to help the Warriors keep the Cavs at bay Sunday, until Curry ran wild late on his way to a NBA Finals record nine 3s and turn the game into a rout. It took James, grotesque-looking eye and all, playing like his version of a mere mortal — 29 points, 13 assists, nine rebounds, 10-for-20 shooting.“It was too easy for them,” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said of the Warriors.Give Golden State credit. They adjusted nicely against James after his 51-point barrage in Game 1. They took a page from the 2014 Spurs — who beat James in five games in the NBA Finals that year, the end of his Miami era — and routinely picked him up 30 to 40 feet away from the basket. Do that, and more often than not James will say that giving up the ball is the right play.The Warriors welcome that. They want the other Cavs to have to beat them.The formula worked Sunday. They just have to do it twice more to win another title. And just like the Warriors on the not-wanting-to-relax front, James said he hopes the Cavaliers continue feeling uncomfortable as well. Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Lacson: Calamity fund cut; where did P4 billion go?

The Celtics had him and the Heat down 3-2 in the Eastern Conference finals in 2012, and couldn’t finish.

first_imgA threat to the security and the invasion of any country can be mainly attributed to the acceptance of beautiful gifts (bribery) by security personnel, as in the epic tale of Troy, when a stunning “Wooden Horse” was presented as a gift, but in the gift was hidden 100 trained and armed soldiers who destroyed Troy.The Deputy Director General of the Civil Service Agency (CSA), Mr. Othello K. Weh, said the “Wooden Horse in Security” should serve as a forewarning to every officer of the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalizations (BIN) and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) to be loyal to the country by refusing “gifts” at the borders and in the country.Mr. Weh said the “Wooden Horse” can be any gift such as L$50, US$50, or one gram of cocaine given in exchange for entry or escape.He made the remarks as guest speaker last Friday, November 28 during the graduation  of 39 and 10  senior officers of the Bin and DEA, respectively after the completion of a 10-week training in Leadership and Management, held at the Liberia Institute of Public Administration (LIPA), on Mamba Point, Monrovia.The training was sponsored by UNMIL as part of their ‘Quick Impact Project’ initiative.  Mr. Weh, who is a lecturer at the University of Liberia, said the  periodic training of security officers in the country is crucial especially along the borders where there are cross border commercial activities as well as inter-marriages and geo-political dynamics to remind the security of the state of the danger of the “Wooden Horse.”Mr. Weh urged graduating officers of BIN and DEA to be professional and disciplined and implement what they have learned.“Discipline adds value to your integrity and personality. Discipline works on our consciences to choose what is wrong and correct,” the CSA Deputy Director said. “Discipline works on our commission to practice patriotism and a high degree of loyalty to our country and countrymen.”The Vice Chairman of the Governance Commission (GC), Madam Elizabeth Sele Mulbah, said GC is grateful for the training of the BIN and DEA officers, stating that it is important for the security to always be one step ahead amid the smartness of the criminals.She stated that the two institutions are among the critical institutions for national safety.For his part, the Director General of LIPA, Mr. Oblayon Blayon Nyemah said there is a tendency for people to be imbued with the mistaken notion that para-military personnel should be relegated to the lowest level of the skills training ladder and be confined to their cubicles especially when their skills are not directly linked to the normal operations of para-military engagement.“But this is a wrong and a wretched perception because a functionally capacitated para military, where the men and women are dedicated to operationalizing their mandates within the geo-political space over which we exercise our sovereignty as a nation with such training they would have the opportunity to perfect their skills and perform better given their complex responsibility that we are confronted with in building our country after conflict,” the LIPA boss said.He stated that similar training can be extended to larger security sector and other para-military institutions as well as other public institutions when there are additional supports or when the financial capacity of LIPA is improved.The Director of DEA, Mr. Anthony K. Souh commended LIPA for the training, saying it widens the understanding of the DEA middle managers of their conduct.The Commissioner of BIN, Cllr. Lemuel Reeves also thanked LIPA and said the training impacted the professionalism of the officers in a timely manner.  He urged them to be examples of what they have learned by being proficient.For his part, the UNPOL Commissioner, Cesar Hawthrone Binag also praised LIPA for the first-of-its-kind training of senior officers of BIN and DEA and said it is a part of UNMIL’s plan to train the officers and managers in the security apparatus.In appreciation for the UNPOL commissioner’s work, the BIN gowned him and gave him a vai name, meaning Chief. The Bin also presented a gown for his wife and a plaque.  Meanwhile, LIPA has introduced a new course, the Public Security Management for security officers, in the curriculum. LIPA offers various levels of trainings, ranging from short-term competency courses to long-term graduate professional development courses and there are also customized courses offered on request of the client organization.The design of these various levels of training, whether regular or customized, meets the demand of the participants in the use of State-of-the-Art technology and modern facilities employed by highly qualified institutional and adjunct faculty staff.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgThe Board of Directors of the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) has approved US$256.7 million grant to Liberia under the Millennium Challenge Compact program.The grant was approved during the MCC Board’s annual meeting held on September 7, in Washington D.C and chaired by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.The Board’s approval now paves the way for the formal signing of a bi-lateral agreement (to be known as the Liberia Compact) between the Liberian and U.S. governments to be held in the United States by October.It will fund projects in electricity, road maintenance, reforms and capacities building and also replace the damaged water supply line from Mt. Coffee Hydro Plant to the White Plains Water Treatment Plant.Finance and Development Planning Minister Amara M. Konneh will sign on behalf of the Government of Liberia, while Ms. Dana Hyde, CEO of the Millennium Challenge Corporation, will sign on behalf of the US Government.Upon signing, the Compact will be submitted to the Liberian National Legislature for ratification.The Liberian government, through the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning, has welcomed the news and praised the U.S. Government for the Compact Grant, noting that it will significantly impact the lives of ordinary Liberians through poverty reduction, job creation and economic growth.The Finance Ministry noted that Liberia’s road to the Compact began in 2008 with the Threshold Country Program through which the U.S. Government provided US$15 million grant to support the Liberian government’s interventions to increase girls’ primary education completion, land rights and access, and to improve Liberia’s trade policy, all of which have contributed to Liberia’s recovery.The Compact program is competitive, and requires countries to meet key indicators relevant to economic and political governance. These include ‘Governing Justly’, which measures the protection of civil rights including the right to free speech; and ‘Control of Corruption’, measuring government’s transparency and accountability in public financial management. Liberia continues to make progress on those and other key indicators, in spite of the many challenges.Meanwhile MFDP has disclosed that MCC CEO Hyde has telephoned President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf to inform her of the MCC Board’s decision and congratulated her for Liberia’s success in securing the MCC Compact Grant.The MCC Board has also approved a Compact Grant with Morocco and a Threshold Program with Sierra Leone.

first_imgGesler E. Murray, Minister of Mines and EnergyBy David A. Yates and Alvin WorziThe Government of Liberia (GoL) through the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) in collaboration with other institutions are expected to commence a three-day international exhibition conference on mining, gas and oil sector of the country.The conference, which is expected to take place from Thursday, November 28 thru 30, 2019, is aimed at bringing together several government officials, investors, international industry experts, as well as mining, energy, petroleum and related technology providers and financiers to discuss challenges, highlight investment opportunities, as well as celebrate the successes of the country’s energy sector.The conference will be held under the theme, “Exploring Opportunities and Investing in Africa’s Mining, Energy and Petroleum Industries.”Mines and Energy Minister Gesler E. Murray told journalists at a press conference in Monrovia on Thursday, November 14, that the country is blessed with an impressive variety of mineral resources and has traditionally relied on mining, chiefly iron ore, gold, and diamonds, as a major source of income.Minister Murray, who quoted a report released by the World Bank’s chief for Africa, said it was stated that the mining sector in Liberia grew by 7%, as compared to the non-mining sectors such as agriculture and manufacturing, which declined by 3.5%.He said the recent growth in the mining sector signals a potential to contribute significantly to employment, income generation, and infrastructure development.Notwithstanding the foregoing, Murray said that the development of these mineral resources has significant environmental impacts that often go unnoticed.“This is why the Ministry of Mines and Energy works in collaboration with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other environmental-related institutions to ensure that operating companies uphold high environmental standards and best practices,” he added.He said that the mining and export of iron ore have been the mainstream of the Liberian economy for more than half a century now. The mining and export of gold and diamonds, he added, have also contributed importantly to the country’s revenue stream, noting that some other known mineral deposits that require further assessment to determine their economic viability are manganese, bauxite, kyanite, barite, and phosphate.Minister Murray added, “Our energy sector also offers enormous opportunities relating mainly to hydro and solar potentials. This is why our vision focuses on the country becoming a hub for renewable energy with the capacity to export excess generation.”This vision, he said, is based on the fact that Liberia falls within a solar-rich region, lying between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn above the equator.“Overall, Liberia-based load projection of its entire energy mix is estimated at 4,000 MW. Our legal, fiscal, and regulatory framework already gives investors the clarity and transparency they need. And in the spirit of a win-win partnership, Liberia is committed to providing investors with the incentives and other benefits they need to grow successful businesses,” he added.Minister Murray said that energy access in Liberia represents a significant challenge, as the country has one of the lowest electrification rates in the world.According to research, in 2016, an estimated 88% of the population –over four million people– did not have access to electricity, with a significant disparity in rates of access between urban (16% access) and rural (3% access) areas. The Government has set a target of increasing electrification rates to 70% in Monrovia and 35% of rural areas by 2025, and universal electricity access nationwide by 2030.But Murray said that the country’s energy sector has huge demand for transmission and distribution of electricity to the growing population. This creates a market for any investor to meet these demands.To support and enhance private sector participation, the government passed the 2015 Electricity Law, which serves as a legal framework basis for unbending the sector, thus creating the Liberia Electricity Regulatory Commission, responsible for the issuance of a license to operators and investors in electricity.The government believes these challenges present clear investment opportunities for the private sector. One solution to stabilize the hydro dam at 88 megawatts throughout the year is to build a reservoir at the confluence of the Vai and St. Paul River, over which Mount Coffee sits.The reservoir and cascading dams along the St. Paul River can generate as much as 500 to 800 megawatts of power.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Tottenham forward Son Heung-min celebrates his goal against Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final © AFP / Ian KINGTONLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 10 – Son Heung-min was hailed as a hero after scoring Tottenham’s winner against Manchester City, putting them in the driving seat in their Champions League quarter-final after a match overshadowed by another Harry Kane injury.The South Korean forward scored past City goalkeeper Ederson in the 78th minute on Tuesday to give Spurs a narrow 1-0 advantage to take into next week’s return leg at the Etihad Stadium. The home side, playing just the second match in their gleaming new stadium, survived an early penalty, awarded after a VAR review, with Hugo Lloris diving to his left to deny Sergio Aguero.The Times lauded the match-winner and said “Spurs have survived without Kane in the past partly because of Son’s expertise”.The Daily Mail’s chief sports writer Martin Samuel said Son comes into his own when Spurs top-scorer Kane is missing.“The only person at Tottenham who does not seem to miss Harry Kane is Son Heung-min,” he said.“No sooner had the talisman disappeared than Son stepped up to win the game. It was the same when Kane was injured earlier in the season. Son hit the form of his life.”The South Korean forward shone when Kane missed a chunk of games earlier this year, scoring four goals in four games to keep Tottenham on track for a top-four finish in the Premier League and helping them reach the Champions League last eight.Samuel said it was unlikely the England captain would make the second leg in Manchester next Wednesday, which was a “giant blow” for Tottenham.But the Guardian said Son showed that Spurs could prosper without Kane, who limped off after a challenge with England teammate Fabian Delph shortly before the hour mark.“When Kane is rusty or easing his way back he moves less without the ball,” it said. “He creates a static point at the front of the team, whereas Son is a different kind of player to this half-fit Kane, quicker and more likely to dribble or power on behind the last defender.“In a way Kane’s likely absence now is a curious kind of plus point for the second leg of this tie. With Son’s speed at the head of the team they will always carry a threat on the counterattack. City will surely play better than this next week. But even without their captain it is advantage Tottenham.”The Sun said the South Korean forward had made Spurs’ new stadium his own, having scored their first goal there against Crystal Palace last week.“Son is writing the Tottenham Opus, starting with the first goal at White Hart Lane 2.0 against Crystal Palace to the first Champions League strike,” it said.0Shares0000(Visited 5 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgDONEGALDAILY.COM has been given incredible new details on a scam in which dozens of Donegal people were conned.A number of investors are due to meet with our investigators later this morning – and we hope to give an up-to-date story to readers later this afternoon.The investigation relates to a foreign national and how he sucked dozens of local people into a bogus get-rich-quick scheme. He used well-known salespeople to trick unsuspecting investors out of MILLIONS OF EURO.The smooth-talking crook boasted about how he could beat the bankers by promising fantastic returns on cash deposits.He said his solution to low returns from the banks was to invest in liquidated stock and re-sell those stocks at huge profits.But it was all a scam – and now it’s being investigated by Gardai, the Criminal Assets Bureau and the Revenue Commissioners….as well as up to six other police forces. A new update will appear later today.* If you were an investor, contact us by email on info@donegaldaily.com in complete confidence.BREAKING NEWS: DONEGAL INVESTMENT SCAM UPDATE was last modified: December 15th, 2010 by gregShare 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)last_img read more

first_imgEXCLUSIVE: A CON ARTIST who tricked dozens of Donegal investors out of their cash has referred to them as ‘turkeys’ and boasted: “They’ll never see a cent.”The brazen foreign national crook has bagged millions of euro in a get-rich-quick scam which is being investigated by the Garda Bureau of Fraud Investigation.Detectives have already raided rented premises in a number of towns in Donegal as part of extensive international investigations into the swindler. Donegaldaily.com has been talking to a number of sources about how the fraudster operated his scam.He told cash investors they could get returns of up to 40% in a matter of months – and that he bought liquidated stock and companies and re-sold them at huge profit.The fact is that he just kept the cash. And now he is telling investors that if they want their money back, they should sue him.And he is also boasting: “They should have read the small print – the investment can go down as well as up.” But it is his brass-necked boasts – details of which have been passed to us – which will infuriate up to 90 out-of-pocket investors right across the county this morning.We are told that when he was asked if people would get their money back, he said: “There are no guarantees in this life. If they (the investors) think they can have their money back, then they are a bunch of turkeys.”One source told us: “He is wrapping himself up in legals. He is basically saying the investments didn’t work and that’s the end of it. If people want to sue him, they can go ahead. He doesn’t care.”Detectives however believe the balding roly-poly swindler has tried to pull off the ‘perfect crime’ – persuading people with hidden cash to invest and hoping they won’t report it to the authorities for fear of being investigated by the Revenue Commissioners.One investor who has lost a huge six figure sum told us last night: “My money was legitimate and all declared. In fact I took it out of the bank to give to that fat bastard. “If he thinks he can come here and pull the wool over my eyes, he had better think again. I can’t begin to tell you how angry people are.”We have been told that four cars loaded with investors has been looking for both the swindler and his sales people in recent days.The crook ran a so-called Ponzi scheme, similar to the one run in the USA by conman Bernard Madoff. He is serving 150 years behind bars for conning investors out of billions of dollars.The Donegal con is believed to have involved up to €10M. The crook is currently winding up all his business concerns both here and in Belfast.More to follow later….EXCLUSIVE: SHOCK CHRISTMAS MESSAGE FROM INVESTMENT SWINDLER – YOU’RE A BUNCH OF TURKEYS! was last modified: December 20th, 2010 by gregShare 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)last_img read more
