They’ve got nothing to lose and that’s what makes them scary.”Ravena and his teammates wiped out that fear emphatically, building leads of as many as 31 before toning down on their cut-throat approach to the game. By the time Ateneo was done, there was a lot of rubble to survey in the wake of its performance.Nobody over at the Tams’ side was able to produce in double digits. Arvin Tolentino, the hero in FEU’s playoff game against La Salle, was held to just five points in his final game as a Tamaraw.“I’m to blame,” FEU coach Olsen Racela said. “I didn’t put them on a position to succeed. It took a while bago kami naka-buwelo.”Racela can shoulder the blame all he wants but it is highly unlikely any other coach with any other team could have fared better with the kind of tenacity and talent Ateneo flashed.Ravena fouled out in the final 3:33 of the game but still accounted for 22 points and seven rebounds.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next The Blue Eagles scored the first eight points, four coming off two emphatic rim-rattlers from superstar swingman Thirdy Ravena and simply ran the Tamaraws down from thereon to set up a shot at defending their men’s basketball crown.Ateneo will face either No. 2 Adamson U or No. 3 University of the Philippines, who are locked in a semifinal duel that seemed to have a monopoly on Final Four drama.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back Chriss“Any team, UP or Adamson, I think is gonna be tough,” said assistant coach Sandy Arespacochaga in his usual pitch-in chores for coach Tab Baldwin at the post-game presser.“Both are deserving to make it to the Finals. We have to prepare for any team [because] anyone is a formidable opponent in the Finals.” Ateneo routed Far Eastern University, 80-61, Sunday in their UAAP Final Four showdown at Smart Araneta Coliseum to become the first team to tab a championship berth.The win looked as easy as that sounded.ADVERTISEMENT No matter how formidable either the Falcons or the Maroons are, none of them have looked as sharp and as dominating as the Blue Eagles were versus the Tamaraws.When Matt Nieto and Angelo Kouame joined Ravena in the scoring fray, Ateneo further throttled FEU and erected a 17-point lead in the first half. Ravena and Kouame had outscored the entire FEU team after two quarters.“We knew coming into the game that we were up against a tough FEU team… we got off to a good start and we made sure there were no dips in our performance,” said Arespacochaga.Recent history shows Arespacochaga was right about FEU. Sunday’s duel proved otherwise.FEU had always been a necessary thorn for Ateneo. The Tamaraws pushed the Blue Eagles to the limit in last year’s Final Four, forcing Ateneo to burn their twice-to-beat advantage and falling one defensive stop short of ousting the eventual champions.ADVERTISEMENT Allen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal Philippines make clean sweep in Men’s and Women’s 3×3 Basketball PLAY LIST 02:43Philippines make clean sweep in Men’s and Women’s 3×3 Basketball02:43Philippines make clean sweep in Men’s and Women’s 3×3 Basketball06:27SEA Games 2019: No surprises as Gilas Pilipinas cruises to basketball gold02:14Carpio 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 Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew MOST READ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Union of Disabled Fiscally Strapped

first_imgThe president of the National Union of Organizations of the Disabled (NUOD), Rev. Fallah S. Cymbianoh, says the major challenge facing the union is funding and disclosed that the organization does not have a stable source of funding to support its activities.Subsidies provided by government through the National Commission on Disabilities cannot even cover the monthly rent of the Union’s office and presently, “we are facing eviction,” Rev. Cymbianoh announced in his address at the opening of the two-day National General Assembly of NUOD in Monrovia last Tuesday.The Assembly officially opened by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, brought together delegates from all fifteen counties under the theme, “Getting to Zero New Ebola, Mainstreaming Persons with Disabilities and Post-Ebola Recovery Plan.”  “To put it more bluntly Madam President, the Union is in a precarious financial situation,” said Cymbianoh, emphasizing the need to have at least 30 percent of the budget of the National Commission on Disabilities allocated to the Union to match its rising challenges.Rev. Cymbianoh praised the European Union for its assistance since 2012 through a project that covered its rental obligations over the last few years but which has now expired.While commending the President for reconstituting the National Commission on Disabilities and its role in directing the affairs of persons with disabilities, Cymbianoh appealed to her to appoint NCD’s leadership from a shortlist already provided to her through the office of Vice President Joseph Boakai.In her address, President Sirleaf assured members of NUOD that irrespective of their physical conditions they are part of the Liberian nation as one people and deserve equal opportunities, pledging that her administration remains committed to support Liberians with disabilities in the government’s development agenda. Her administration will not allow disability to be a disadvantage to their participation in the collective development of the country President Sirleaf said and promised to work along with NUOD in achieving the goals and agenda which emerged out of the Assembly.The General Assembly also brought together various disabled people’s organizations from all 15 counties. They meet in March of each year. During the conference held at the Mildred Page Hall of the S. Trowen Nagbe United Methodist Church, all chapters reported to the NUOD, which also makes a formal report of its activities for the past year.Also during this Assembly, a new corps of officers was expected to be elected to run the affairs of the NUOD for a four-year term.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Kane downs Dortmund as Spurs end Wembley woe

first_img0Shares0000Tottenham striker Harry Kane celebrates restoring his side’s lead in the first half after beating Roman Burki at his near post. Photo/DMLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 13 – Harry Kane banished Tottenham’s Wembley curse as the England striker’s double sealed a 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in their Champions League opener on Wednesday.With White Hart Lane being redeveloped, Tottenham are playing their home matches at the English national stadium this season and that had been bad news for Mauricio Pochettino’s side. Already scarred by damaging Wembley defeats in the Champions League and FA Cup semi-finals last term, Tottenham had lost to Chelsea and drawn with Burnley this season, sparking alarmist talk that they were jinxed at the hallowed north London venue.But, after losing eight of their previous 12 matches at Wembley, Kane’s predatory finishing ensured Tottenham finally enjoyed a night to remember in their temporary lodgings.Son Heung-Min’s first goal of the season put Tottenham ahead early on and, although Andriy Yarmolenko conjured a sublime equaliser, it was the hosts who possessed the killer instinct thanks to Kane’s latest heroics.The on-form Kane, who scored twice in Saturday’s win at Everton, restored Tottenham’s advantage before the interval and wrapped up the victory with his second goal after half-time.Pitted in a tricky group that also includes holders Real Madrid, Tottenham’s commanding display secured only their third win in 13 Wembley appearances and gave them an early boost in the battle for a place in the knockout stages.The only blemish for Tottenham was a late sending off for a second bookable offence for Jan Vertonghen, who swung his forearm into Mario Gotze’s face.Dortmund arrived in London unbeaten so far this season, but their squad had been ravaged by injuries, with Marco Reus, Raphael Guerreiro, Andre Schurrle and Marcel Schmelzer among the key players sidelined.It took Tottenham just four minutes to expose the fault lines in Dortmund’s under-strength line-up as Son scored a fine individual goal.Set free down the left flank, Son drove into the penalty area unchecked by Dortmund’s defence and, with goalkeeper Roman Burki failing to guard his near post, the South Korean smashed a powerful strike into the roof of the net.If that seemed like the perfect way for Tottenham to banish their Wembley angst, the positives vibes lasted just seven minutes.– Carbon copy –When Yarmolenko played a one-two with Shinji Kagawa out on the right wing, there appeared little danger, but the Ukrainian darted on to the return pass and hit a superb curling effort over Hugo Lloris and into the far corner.Yarmolenko’s bolt from the blue could have been a hammer blow for Tottenham, but they recovered their composure impressively and regained the lead in the 15th minute.In a carbon copy of Tottenham’s first goal, Kane sprinted onto a long ball down the left wing, muscled his way into the area and slammed a perfectly placed shot past Burki, who once again left his near post fatally exposed.Dortmund hit back with a sustained period of pressure and ended the half frustrated after Christian Pulisic’s strike was disallowed for offside.Pochettino’s men should have wrapped up the points immediately after the break when Kane and  then Son fired over with only Burki to beat from the edge of the area.Those glaring misses almost came back to haunt Spurs when Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang volleyed home at the far post, only to see his strike controversially erased by another offside flag.But Kane ensured Tottenham would finally taste the winning feeling at Wembley as the England forward struck again with a clinical finish in the 60th minute.Christian Eriksen’s pass found Kane unmarked 18 yards from goal and he punished Dortmund’s sloppy marking by drilling a low strike that deflected past Burki’s despairing dive.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Pochettino ‘very angry’ with flaky Tottenham after letting lead slip again

first_imgTottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino was ‘very angry’ with his side after they squandered a lead to settle for a point in a 1-1 draw at Leicester.Spurs were far from their best in Saturday’s trip to the King Power Stadium, but the Foxes’ unbeaten start to the Premier League season looked to be at an end after Dele Alli netted a late opener.The substitute, a £5million signing from MK Dons last season, stooped to head Spurs into the lead with his first ever Tottenham goal after 81 minutes.But the advantage was extremely short-lived as Leicester went straight up the other end and equalised through Riyad Mahrez; the Frenchman’s fourth goal in three games.The draw means Spurs are without a win in their first three games – after Stoke scored two late goals to come back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 last weekend.And an unimpressed Pochettino insists their concentration in the closing stages must improve.“I am very angry, very upset, about this situation,” said the boss.“The mistake we made today is difficult to explain. It’s a shame for me, the way we concede the goal.“It’s not about football, it’s about being more aggressive and to be focussed to do our job. My concern and my focus this week will be to compete much better.“It was 50/50, a very difficult game for both teams,” Pochettino added.“In the second half we played much better, but I am disappointed with the draw. Last game against Stoke we lost a 2-0 lead and we did it again. We deserved more again but it is a shame.“We need to compete better to the end because against Stoke we conceded late also – two goals.”last_img read more

DD Travel: Teaching in this place called China

first_imgFalcarragh woman Lauren Toner has been having an amazing experience travelling around China while teaching English to local children. The young tourist is eager to share her stories with friends and family back home as she meets new people and explores a new county. Here, Lauren gives us an insight into how she adapted to the new culture, with plenty of tips on what to expect if you decide to follow her path: Sitting on the bus, daydreaming, then I look up. It hits me for the 100th time. I’m in China! The feeling is surreal. I was told it feels like you are in a dream like state when you are in China and it really does feel like that. It was late summer 2016 when I applied for the Teach & Travel TEFL internship and it couldn’t have come quick enough. I can safely say that it has been the best thing I’ve ever done. I was quite scared getting on that plane to Beijing on my own but one day later I had already met lots of people from all over the world – who I now call my friends. Fast forward 6 days, we had taken part in some Tai Chi and calligraphy lessons not to mention the intense Chinese lessons we had been doing for two days. ‘Ni hao, wo jiao Lauren’ was as far as I got. New adventuresTeacher training completed, we visited the famous Yonghe Lamasery – or as it’s commonly known The Lama Temple. We went to a Jade museum, visited the Beijing Olympic Stadium, witnessed an impressive acrobatic show and last but not least we climbed The Great Wall of China.You know those pictures you see of people on nice flat parts of The Wall, well we hadn’t arrived at that. This was so steep I had to look twice. However, one hour later and maybe a lung down, I was on top of The Great Wall. I stood in amazement at the wonderful views and smog filled city in the background. What an achievement! It was nearly just as hard to get down as it was to get up. At this stage everybody’s legs were wobbly and we took the steps side on to make it easier. We walked in zigzags on the flat parts to get rid of the dizziness. Unreal experience, but as they say ‘No pain, No gain’.Rewarding roleI have been here for nearly 5 months now and absolutely love teaching my children at a private boarding school in a small town called Houjie in Dongguan. Being a teacher for me is very rewarding. Seeing the children’s little faces light up when they are learning is just wonderful. I can honestly say I always walk out of my classroom with a smile on my face.My favourite thing about teaching is the entertainment I get from the students. Also being on the other side of the desk makes me appreciate how much work teachers put in for their students. Teaching in China has provided me with a lot of opportunities as I also teach middle school students ‘Social Studies’. Believe you me, I had to learn how to teach that very quickly. I also run an afterschool musical club which is right up my street. This is the reason I came to China!Apart from teaching, the time to travel is the most fun part about living in China where exploring the surrounding areas is necessary as there’s just so much to see.I have been to a lot of different cities during my 5 months here with the amazing people I met in Beijing.Prepare yourself for the culture shockIf you ever decide to come to China, be prepared to get lost, get stressed over trains and buses not arriving and dealing with the hardest thing, the language barrier – as not many people speak English here. You might end up getting chicken feet for dinner if you don’t ask properly. It’s pretty hard without the saviour that is – Google Translate. Chinese culture for me personally wasn’t as hard to adapt to as I thought it was going to be. Sometimes, it does get to me when everyone is staring at me or secretly taking photos but sure I decided to come here so I take it on the chin. I have a love-hate relationship with the food here, but mostly I enjoy the Chinese way of eating. I am now a pro at using chopsticks! Chinese people have been nothing but friendly during my time in China (even if they can’t speak English). Exciting plansNow that it’s coming up to the end of the teaching semester, I have plans to travel around China with my new found friends. We have adventures planned in amazing cities around the country, from bamboo raft river cruises in the Li River to bungee jumping in Beijing and hiking through the renowned ‘Avatar Mountains’.In January, it seemed absurd when I stepped off that plane in Beijing but it has definitely been worth every single minute. Six months in China has opened up an endless amount of possibilities.Have an open mindThe advice I would give to people who are interested in doing this kind of thing is to be open minded. Anything can happen. But if you want to do it and you’re stressing over it, then DON’T stress. Just do it. I can guarantee you will have a unique experience and a story for the grand kids 😉DD Travel: Teaching in this place called China was last modified: June 8th, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:ChinaCultureteflTravellast_img read more

Apartments, condos may get free recycling

Hoping to reduce the amount of trash going to landfills, the Board of Public Works voted Friday to offer recycling services to all apartment buildings and condominiums in Los Angeles. If approved by the City Council, the program would be voluntary, free and open to all buildings beginning in 2008. “This program will extend recycling services to all Angelenos,” board President Cynthia Ruiz said in a statement. “This will be a huge step toward protecting the environment, preserving valuable natural resources and achieving our goal of diverting 70 percent of our refuse from landfills by 2020.” Some 750,000 single-family residences and small apartment complexes now have curbside recycling provided by the city’s Bureau of Sanitation. Roughly 541,000 apartment units and condos hire private haulers and rarely pay the extra money for recycling services.

Contract haulers install recycling bins at complexes and then make weekly pickups. Residents have done a good job sorting, with up 40 percent of trash recycled in some buildings, said Karen Coca, an environmental affairs officer with the Bureau of Sanitation. Officials estimate the program will cost the city $6 million to $10 million, depending on the hauler bids and the number of units that sign up for the service.
