first_imgPrior to the game against Ateneo, UE averaged 17.67 offensive rebounds-per-game making the Red Warriors the third-best squad under the offensive glass.Against the Blue Eagles, however, the Red Warriors looked like humble pawns grabbing just nine offensive rebounds while watching Ateneo gobble up 19 misses underneath its respective basket.Ateneo, overall, outrebounded the Red Warriors 46-27.“We saw UE’s rebounding especially in its last game and the game before that and I saw [Alvin] Pasaol had a lot of rebounds and that was big,” said Kouame. “The coaches told us to box out and the key to this game was the rebounding in both the offense and defensive ends.”Pasaol has been nothing short of spectacular for the Red Warriors averaging 24 points, 8.67 rebounds, and 4.33 offensive rebounds in his past three games but got limited to a humbler line of 17 points, eight rebounds, and three offensive boards against the Blue Eagles.ADVERTISEMENT Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

first_imgStarting this Sunday, Seventh-day Adventists across the country will embark on the annual ‘ingathering’ campaign – a community service outreach during which the church solicits funds from the community to help with its humanitarian programme.Last year the church spent well over $55.3 million in humanitarian assistance, which ranged from the construction of homes to school feeding programmes among other initiatives.In an invited comment, Director of Community Service of the Guyana Conference of Seventh-day Adventist, Pastor Jumoul Sancho, quoted John Holmes who said, “There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.”The Seventh-day Adventist Church last year built this house in Amelia’s Ward, LindenHe said this is exactly what the annual harvest ingathering of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is all about.“Your generous contributions in the past have enabled us to reach down and lift thousands of persons throughout Guyana in the past.”According to Pastor Sancho, during 2017, the church was able to build and renovate 10 houses for homeless persons and a few bus sheds in several communities.“Our 223 congregations in Guyana have given out more than 6000 food hampers to the needy; 30 churches conducted weekly feeding programmes for school children and the elderly; moreover, we have had free health fairs conducted in several communities,” Pastor Sancho said.He added that “many of our churches have also offered relief for fire victims as well as medical, education, transportation and welfare assistance.” This year he said the church’s desire is to lift more persons higher and as such is inviting to once again give generously and “help us bring hope to hopeless.”Meanwhile, Pastor Sancho gave a breakdown of how the funds solicited last year were used: $28.8 million went to 30 weekly feeding programmes; $15.3 million was used to distribute over 10,000 food hampers; $6 million was injected into building and renovating 10 homes; $1.8 million was spent on relief for fire victims; $1.225 million on education assistance; $250,000 on building three bus sheds; $1 million in medical assistance; and some $960,000 on transportation assistance.last_img read more

first_imgAs people gear up for the long weekend and plan to head out on road trips, the Insurance Corporation of B.C. is urging drivers to take care on the roads.Across the North Central region, alone, there has been an average of 120 crashes and 30 injuries between 2006 and 2010 over the B.C. Day long weekend.- Advertisement -ICBC says several crashes each year are caused by driver fatigue. Although many people consider impaired drivers to mean those who have been drinking alcohol, impaired drivers can be anyone who allows something to impact their reaction time or ability to judge situations, which includes fatigue.The provincial insurance company recommends drivers get a good night’s sleep before leaving on a road trip, take breaks every two hours and do not drive at night when they would usually be asleep.It also says that if drivers begin to feel drowsy, they should immediately pull over, get out of the vehicle and walk around or even take a nap.last_img read more

first_imgVickers, didn’t even qualify at Daytona while the four Toyota’s that did that did finished 22nd, 30th, 34th and 40th. “I think this finish means a lot for Toyota,” he said. “To be a new team in such a competitive series and come in our first race and get a top 10, I’m so proud of everyone. I think everyone is stoked about the situation.” With the remaining three Toyotas in Sunday’s race placing 32nd, 33rd and 39th, Vickers’ validation seemed that much more important. But certainly not all important. “On the one hand, given the situation at Daytona and that this is a new team, new manufacturer, I know everybody wants to jump up and down,” Vickers said. “The fact is, we’re all racers and we finished nine spots worse than we wanted to. It’s a tough balance. But at the end of the day, everyone is going to be happy.” Vickers, however, was quick to point out his car’s limitations. To win Sunday’s race, he said the No. 83 Toyota Camry required a different setup, something he wasn’t sure could have been done on pit road. But a top-five would have been attainable with flawless adjustments. FONTANA – Brian Vickers finished nine places short of his goal in the Auto Club 500 at California Speedway in Fontana. He admitted wanting to joyously jump up and down. NASCAR Photo Galleries: • Fans Auto Club 500: One | Two | Three Complete coverage: Motor Sports After a forgettable Daytona 500 last week in Toyota’s NASCAR debut, Vickers’ provided some much-needed credibility for the auto maker, driving his red Bull Toyota over the finish line in 10th place on Sunday. center_img Nevertheless, his team took a large step forward on Sunday. “We didn’t have any problems with the car,” he said. “We learned a lot about the set up and what we can do moving forward.” GILLILAND 25TH After an impressive Daytona 500 showing last week, former Chino Hills resident David Gilliland was a virtual non-factor Sunday, falling a lap behind the leaders early and never recovering on the way to 25th place. The driver of the M&Ms Ford ran in the middle of the pack virtually the entire race after starting 40th. “It’s not what we hoped for, but we came out of here with a 25th-place finish,” Gilliland said. “We weren’t good when we unloaded and we just never got where we needed to be.” As for the comparison between 25th place Sunday and an eighth-place finish at Daytona, Gilliland said nothing else compared either. “Just a different track, different tires,” he said. “Everything’s different.” PENALTIES There were 17 penalties handed out Sunday, including Tony Stewart’s for exceeded the 55 mph pit-road speed limit while leading the race on lap 158. Stewart dropped to 23rd, sacrificing a two-plus second lead while enduring the pass-through penalty. Dave Blaney was hit twice in a row on the 91st and 112th laps for pitting before pit road was open and speeding on pit road. Gilliland’s lone penalty was for exiting the pits too fast on lap 194. PARACHUTE OOPS During pre-race festivities, a skydiver unexpectedly veered his parachute into the narrow opening between the debris-catch fence bordering the track and the stands. The performer was uninjured, quickly springing to his feet and throwing his hands in the air, inciting a roar from the crowd. CELEBRITIES During the pre race drivers meeting, NASCAR competition director Robin Pemberton named the celebrities and corporate CEOs on hand for the race. Singer Brian McKnight was the lone celebrity. “Short list,” he said about McKnight, who was there to sing the national anthem. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_img Sami Khedira is being touted for a switch to Arsenal 1 Following a starring role in Germany’s 7-1 humiliation of Brazil in the World Cup semi final, reports concerning Sami Khedira’s future have gone into overdrive, with the Real Madrid man tipped for a big money move this summer.Arsenal are just one of the clubs linked with the 27-year-old, but will they land him or will he end up elsewhere?talkSPORT rounds up the latest…Highest paid playerThe biggest development seems to be the problems that have arisen over Khedira’s current wages in Madrid. The Daily Mail report that Arsenal will need to make him their highest paid player – an idea they appear to be open to – but concede that the club could still look elsewhere in their quest to sign a new central midfielder, with Bayer Leverkusen’s Lars Bender and Southampton star Morgan Schneiderlin still being considered.€30m dealSport Bild seem to be keeping a keen eye on proceedings, reporting that Arsenal are preparing a €30m bid for Khedria. However, much like the British media, they also say that in order for the Gunners to secure his services, they will have to make him the club’s highest paid player. Mesut Ozil currently holds that title – earning an estimated €180,000-a-week.Stalled negotiationsSpanish outlet Cadena Ser have shed more light on Khedira’s current situation, claiming that Arsenal representatives have spoken with his agent over a potential move, but talks have stalled over salary demands. They continue that Arsenal have a transfer budget of €100m for the summer, and with Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy set to arrive at the club in due course, there is plenty of money remaining to land Khedira.CompetitionKhedira’s performance against Brazil looks to have prompted Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho into action, according to the Independent. Seemingly not content on signing Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa, the Blues are considering a move for Khedira – who has worked with Mourinho during the latter’s time as Real Madrid manager. At the moment it looks to be just fleeting interest, but given Chelsea’s comparable wealth, Arsenal will be keen to get any deal over the line sooner rather than later.Arsenal fans, will you land Sami Khedira?

first_img1 Manchester City midfielder Frank Lampard celebrates his brace in the League Cup There were no major shocks in Wednesday’s League Cup third round action, as Manchester City led the way for the Premier League sides with a monumental 7-0 victory over ten-man Sheffield Wednesday.The game was goalless at half-time, but the Etihad Stadium crowd witnessed an attacking masterclass after the break, as both Frank Lampard an Edin Dzeko netted fine braces to book the holders’ spot in the last-16.Man-of-the-match Lampard opened the scoring shortly after the restart after he recreated his famous goal against former club Chelsea by converting a cross from James Milner, with Dzeko soon making it two with a tap-in from Jesus Navas’s pass.Spanish forward Navas then added a goal of his own, dashing past the Owl’s defence and blasting in with a fierce strike.City then took full advantage of Kamil Zayatte’s sending off after he tripped Lampard in the box, as Yaya Toure netted a fourth from the spot, with Dzeko’s header, a debut goal for 17-year-old ‘Mini Messi’ Jose Angel Pozo and another cool Lampard finish sealed an emphatic start to City’s cup defence.Meanwhile, Tottenham left it late to clinch their progression as three goals in the final 20 minutes saw them come from behind to beat Nottingham Forest 3-1.It was another barren first-half at White Hart Lane, but Championship outfit Forest took a deserving lead when 19-year-old Jorge Grant scooped in from close-range on his full debut.Spurs were uninspired throughout but suddenly kicked into life following the introduction of young duo Harry Kane and Ryan Mason, with 23-year-old Mason pulling the hosts level with his first senior goal – a stunning strike from 30-yards.Much-maligned striker Roberto Soldado then put Tottenham in front when he diverted Andros Townsend’s mis-hit shot into the back of the net, with Kane coolly slotting home in stoppage-time to seal victory.Meanwhile, Chelsea had Brazilian playmaker Oscar to thank as his second-half strike proved the winner in a slim 2-1 win over Bolton at Stamford Bridge.Young defender Kurt Zouma put the Blues in front on his debut with a neat finish after some hesitant defending, but the Trotters were level just six minutes later when Matt Mills headed in.Chelsea rallied after the break and, after dominating the chances with 28 to the visitors’ three, Oscar popped up in the 55th minute with a low strike to save the Blues’ bacon.Newcastle needed extra-time to see off Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, with Paul Dummett’s late diving header handing the ten-man Magpies a 3-2 triumph.Dwight Gayle’s first-half penalty gave the Eagles the lead but two goals from new striker Emmanuel Riviere, one either side of the break, put the visitors in front.Neil Warnock’s stubborn side then grabbed a 90th minute equaliser through Sullay Kaikai to force an additional 30 minutes, but, despite losing Mehdi Abeid to two yellow cards, Dummett stepped up just nine minutes shy of a shoot-out to send Newcastle through.Finally, West Brom netted twice in the final four minutes to secure a last-gasp 3-2 win over Hull City, Saido Berahino’s 88th minute winner putting the Baggies into the next round, while ten-man Brighton ended League Two outfit Burton Albion’s run in the competition with a 3-0 away victory.Capital One Cup third round results:Burton 0-3 BrightonChelsea 2-1 BoltonMan City 7-0 Sheffield WedTottenham 3-1 Nottingham ForestCrystal Palace 2-3 NewcastleWest Brom 3-2 HullClick here to see the full League Cup last-16 drawlast_img read more

first_imgChelsea boss Jose Mourinho admitted his team’s display again Hull City was far from special as they ran out 2-0 winners at Stamford Bridge.A header from Eden Hazard and a well taken goal by Diego Costa were enough to see the Blues to victory on home soil in west London against a Tigers side who saw Tom Huddlestone sent off on the hour-mark.But the Portuguese boss with pleased with the flair his charges showed as they attempted to beat their opponents in style.“We played well enough,” said Mourinho. “It wasn’t a special performance. It wasn’t one of these performances that everybody is over the moon about because it was unbelievable. It was not this kind of performance.“It was a performance with flashes of happiness, flashes of creativity and of good football and it was good enough to win.“Every player had a good participation. Again, I repeat, not phenomenal but good enough.”And Mourinho reserved special praise for striker Costa, who ended a four game goal drought with his shot past Allan McGregor, insisting his fearless nature makes him an instrumental part of the Chelsea team.He added: “I’m happy with Diego [Costa] too. Not because of the goal, the goal is not important, but the movement, the happiness in his legs, the dynamic he brought [to the team] and the way he was pressing.“It looked for me that in this moment he is free of fear.”last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Kagawa is one of Japan’s most successful footballing exports © AFP / Emmanuel DUNANDTOKYO, Japan, Nov 27 – Attacking midfielder Shinji Kagawa, one of Japan’s most successful footballing exports, on Tuesday made a passionate plea for a transfer to Spain as he struggles with German outfit Borussia Dortmund.Kagawa was a key part of the celebrated Dortmund side that won back-to-back Bundesliga titles at the start of the decade but has found himself unable to get regular first-team football under Lucian Favre. And the 29-year-old told Nikkan Sports: “Over the past two to three years, I have always been thinking about what I can do to go to Spain.“I cannot end my career as a football player without going to Spain. I absolutely want to achieve that.”The Japan international had a brief spell at Old Trafford but also found himself on the fringes so returned to Dortmund in 2014 hoping to rebuild his confidence.But injuries and an influx of younger talent have left him out of favour at the high-flying west German side, which sits on top of the Bundesliga table unbeaten with nine wins out of 12.“I want to find a solution to this situation. One is to change teams,” Kagawa said.“I have this growing sense of wishing to change my environment and take on new challenges,” he said.“I have nothing to lose. I am confident that I can shine in the next stage of my career,” he said of a possible transfer to Spain, adding that a spell in La Liga would be “the biggest challenge of my career.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
