Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netHead coach: Shaq delos SantosLast season: 9-5ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. “We just have to give our best because last year we came up short,” said delos Santos. FEU was riding a five-game win streak en route to its do-or-die match against La Salle in the Final Four but the eventual champions put on an impressive 25-15, 27-25, 25-21 win to advance to the Finals.Delos Santos’ wish to improve on what they’ve achieved in Season 78 seem to have rubbed off on his players too.Captain Remy Palma said this could be FEU’s last chance to contend for the title, as the Lady Tamaraws will be going into Season 79 with an almost intact lineup from Season 78.“I tell the girls to support me in my final year and that we should always give our best each game and we should always finish off our opponents the moment we get the chance,” said Palma in Filipino.ADVERTISEMENT And Palma hasn’t forgotten a single thing about that stinging Final Four defeat to La Salle.“We have that semifinals experience already and that’s what we’re bringing to this season and we’ll build on that because we’re already on that level,” said Palma.

Defence of Minister Broomes

first_imgDear Editor,It fascinates me, the hearts of men, when within them ‘cynicism’ exits to berate and torture the very people who upon them, shew only wondrous munificence and love. I am talking about the recent articles against Minister Broomes and her character. Note, I am not writing to bash the ignorant writers, but instead wish to highlight their inaccuracy and vindictive reproach toward a woman.Although I have not yet been given the pleasure of meeting Minister Broomes, her pure and transparent work within the fields of human trafficking, and social issues altogether, precedes her. Let us take a moment to reflect upon the humble beginnings of this one woman. An entrepreneur, she bought and sold gold before acquiring enough money to begin mining. Unlike the thousands who would have traversed the interiors of Guyana, witness human injustices and deemed them normalcy, Minister Broomes saw inhumanity and her heart ached. Establishing the Guyana Women Miners Organisation, she was recognised by a foreign people before she was bestowed any honour from here at home. Now in the position where she can help even more people.William Shakespeare enlightened, “How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.” She must have shone too brightly for the present government, so they tried to dim her light by transferring her to another ministry. Dare I say, that even this, worked not against her? Consequently, evil tries another method of debasement: to produce frivolous inaccuracies. Facts: A doctor, who later becomes a minister, can never cease his family from practicing medicine. Minister Broomes, a former miner, cannot cease her family from mining. And this is the issue at hand today! A minister and mother with children invested in mining. Shall I say it, or is Guyana at least competent enough to decipher that this is not a matter worth writing about much less publishing.“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that,” preached Martin Luther King Jr. Brothers and sisters, be wise, remember these words, and let us not crucify another good man.Sincerely,Joseph Hardattlast_img read more

Am Leaving Liberia with a Heavy Heart’

first_imgDr. Wang Jim, outgoing head of the Chinese medical team assigned at the John F. Kennedy (JFK) Memorial Hospital says he was saddened to leave Liberia after successfully performing several surgeries on patients, including cataracts, glaucoma, and pediatric related ailments, among others.“Liberians are very good people to live and work with. I enjoyed the working relationship we have had with Liberian doctors especially the young doctors. I will miss them, but I am going to come back and work in this country,” Dr. Jim, who is an ophthalmologist (eye specialist), told the gathering at a gowning and farewell ceremony held in his honor in the courtyard of the JFK Hospital in Sinkor.He and his team are expected to leave the country on October 27, after spending two and half years in Liberia. Dr. Jim was gowned by the Liberia-Chinese Friendship Organization.Following the ceremony, he suggested to the Liberian government to place more emphasis on study opportunities for young doctors in foreign lands.“It is now time for government to concentrate all of its resources to empower local doctors to take over the country’s healthcare delivery system,” he said.“You need to know that only Liberians can take care of their health system, and not for them to depend on foreign doctors, because they would shortly leave for their respective homes,” Dr. Jim said.According to him, Liberia’s health situation has improved significantly, despite the outbreak of the Ebola virus disease that exposed weaknesses in the system.Commenting, Mr. Sheriff, president of Liberia-Chinese Friendship Organization, said they were appreciating Dr. Jim and his team for the role they played in the fight against Ebola in the country.“When Ebola hit the country, they were here for us. They sacrificed themselves to save Liberians from the virus. So we need to appreciate them in this way,” Mr. Sheriff added.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Carlo Ancelotti declares interest in succeeding Louis van Gaal at Manchester United

first_img1 Carlo Ancelotti Carlo Ancelotti has given the clearest indication yet that he would be interested in becoming Manchester United manager.United’s current boss Louis van Gaal, 64, has suggested he will retire when his deal with the club runs out in the summer of 2017.Ex-Chelsea manager Ancelotti, who was sacked as Real Madrid boss in May and has been linked with the top job at Old Trafford, last month said he would be keen on a return to the Barclays Premier League if the right position came up.And in an interview with The Independent published on Monday, the 56-year-old Italian said that while he would ideally get back into work next summer, he would be prepared to wait longer – adding: “Of course, for every manager, they would all think of managing Manchester United.”Regarding timescale, Ancelotti said: “I will continue to wait.“If I don’t find a club with a good project, I can wait.“What will I do? Watching games, fishing, all these things.“But let us see next summer. I will not take a job in mid-season, but I would like to work again next summer.”He then said: “Of course, for every manager, they would all think of managing Manchester United.“I would like to come back in a club with a good project, but, of course, one that is competitive.“The Premier League is the best in the sense of atmosphere, ambience. It is also competitive, so I would like to come back, especially for the atmosphere.”last_img read more

Malibu fire

first_imgThe Fire Department needs to catch up with available technology. “Fire Gel,” which is cheaper than foam, is not being used. Reports have stated that foam only lasts 15 minutes whereas the gel, when used, can save your house better than foam. It is currently installed in 122 trucks with the California Office of Emergency Services. Why isn’t it used in all firetrucks? Many homes would have been, and will be, saved once the Fire Department catches up with technology. – Carol Infante Sherman Oaks Rents rival mortgages AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Re: “L.A. metro apartment rents state’s highest” (Oct. 18): In just a few years, rent amounts will rival the mortgage rates so many are unable to meet these days and there is much talk about assisting these “innocent” victims who decided to take on debt they could not handle. When renters are no longer able to find an apartment they can afford, will there be a city, state or possibly federal subsidy made available so people have a place to live? I’m not talking about welfare recipients. The free market is not always what it’s cracked up to be by the euphoric endorsers of this doctrine, those who are financially at peace, having grazed off the buckling backs of the little people who are suffering the consequences of the shrewdly hidden fallacy of this flawed system. – Michael E. White Burbank Holy Cross hospital Re “No reason to delay hospital expansion” (Local View, Oct. 16): For too long the voice and well-being of the northeast San Fernando Valley residents have been ignored in development projects. Surely we deserve the same treatment accorded the residents of Santa Monica in the expansion of St. John’s Hospital, Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles and Henry Mayo in Santa Clarita. These expansion projects included an environmental impact report, development agreements addressing environmental impacts and mitigations, and the access to quality jobs for residents. Providence Holy Cross has adamantly rejected the requests of residents to build responsibly and has instead instituted a campaign of misinformation and scare tactics in order to deflect its responsibility for any delays. – Wayde Hunter Granada Hills Gentler viewpoint Re “Sympathy for the she-devil” (Viewpoint, Oct. 21): While I cringe at the sight or sound of Ann Coulter, I felt compelled to read Mariel Garza’s column as I am always looking for a kinder, gentler viewpoint. Thank you for printing this gem. May I suggest that anyone who did not shudder a little when reading the last paragraph go back and read it again? In addition, kudos to the editor in charge of layout who placed O’Connor’s ugly mess right next to this timely column. Very clever. – Channa Midori Glendale Basic tenet Re “Sympathy for the she-devil” (Viewpoint, Oct. 21): I am quite bewildered by Mariel Garza’s being insulted by Ann Coulter’s comments. I hate to break it to her, but Coulter’s hoping people will become “perfected” in their relationship to God is a basic tenet of Christianity for the past 2,000 years. The “problem” is not with Coulter, but with the teaching in the Bible. Besides, why should Coulter, or anyone for that matter, adhere to a religious faith that was so impotent as to not want others to believe in it as well? – George W. Harris Thousand Oaks Good news It was such a pleasure to open your Saturday newspaper and see the positive article on the front page.

Settlement reached in wrongful death

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre She also had been involved in another rear-end crash six months earlier. Seigel acknowledged before trial that she was responsible for Garvin’s death. Garvin was a volunteer city traffic safety commissioner who “taught and lived bicycle safety,” said his wife, Pamela. In a prepared statement, she made reference to another elderly driver who was involved in a deadly crash in 2003. George Russell Weller was 86 when his car plowed through a street market in Santa Monica, killing 10 people and injuring more than 70. Garvin said her husband’s death and those at the market “were all preventable and teach us that we must individually take responsibility for those we love, whether elderly or young, who should not be driving.” SIMI VALLEY — A jury awarded $12.5 million to the family of a bicyclist who was struck and killed by a car driven by a woman with cataracts. A Ventura County Superior Court panel ruled Friday in a wrongful death lawsuit filed against the motorist on behalf of Glenn Garvin’s wife and two sons. Garvin, 49, of Thousand Oaks was struck from behind while riding in a bicycle lane on Sept. 16, 2006. The new Lexus that hit him was driven by 82-year-old Norma Seigel of Thousand Oaks, who recently had learned she had cataracts in both eyes. Man arrested on suspicion of murder MODESTO – Police have arrested a man on suspicion of murder in the unsolved 1999 disappearance of Dena Raley-McCluskey. 36-year-old Raley-McCluskey vanished in October 1999 and was never seen again. Police believe 47-year-old Russell Jones is responsible for her disappearance, and authorities say they believe they discovered Raley-McClusky’s body on Wednesday. The remains have not been officially identified. Raley-McCluskey was reported missing by her boyfriend, and the next day police found her unlocked car abandoned on a Modesto road. Stanislaus County District Attorney Birgit Fladager said she believes enough evidence exists to file charges. Jones is expected to be arraigned Monday. Prosecutor arrested in casino fight BAKERSFIELD – A Kern County prosecutor was arrested earlier this month after she got in a fight with security guards at a Santa Barbara County casino. Andrea Kohler was arrested on suspicion of battery on Oct. 20 after she allegedly scratched a security guard at the Chumash Casino Resort in Santa Ynez. Her husband, Gregory Kohler, was also arrested on suspicion of battery after county sheriff’s officials say he left the casino drunk and bit a security guard. Both were cited and released at the scene, and will appear in a Santa Maria courtroom on November 15th. Andrea Kohler is a deputy district attorney who supervises the prison crimes unit. Students suspected of spraying gas LODI – Two students at Lodi High School are under arrest for suspicion of spraying a noxious gas into a busy hallway. Police say the incident on Thursday sent six students to the hospital and caused dozens more to complain of feeling ill. The 16- and-17-year-old students allegedly sprayed the gas into a crowded hallway right after lunch. A fire crew and several ambulances responded. Both teens face charges of conspiracy to commit a crime and submitting a noxious substance in a public place. – From wire reports160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea: Reds players rated and slated

first_img 13 James Milner – 6 – A fairly quiet game on the fringes and then superbly provided the header to set up Georginio Wijnaldum’s equaliser. Substitute: Divock Origi – N/A – The Belgian wasn’t on long enough to be rated. 13 13 13 Jordan Henderson – 6 – Patrolled the middle of the park well, despite an early booking. He also put in a superb tackle when Diego Costa had been put through by Cesc Fabregas late on 13 13 13 Joel Matip – 6 – Looked to be enjoying his tussle with Diego Costa but then gave away a penalty when foolishly dangling his leg out. 13 In a huge top of the table battle at Anfield, Liverpool drew 1-1 with Premier League leaders Chelsea.The Blues had gone ahead through David Luiz, when he caught out Simon Mignolet with a long-range free-kick.Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum equalised for the Reds in the second half.Goalkeeper Mignolet then turned out to be the hero for Jurgen Klopp’s side as he saved a penalty from Diego Costa to ensure the spoils were shared.But how did we rate Liverpool’s stars? Click the right arrow above to see what we thought… 13 Roberto Firmino – 4 – Always a nuisance but wasn’t much of a presence in the box as Liverpool moved the ball forward. His miss five minutes after the break was truly awful and could have been more costly without Mignolet’s penalty save. 13 Georginio Wijnaldum – 7 – The Dutchman had a decent strike in the first period which made Thibaut Courtois work, while he also his defensive duties well with a couple of neat tackles. Deserved to score the equalising goal in a good display all-round. Adam Lallana – 6 – Was a constant menace but it wasn’t until just before the hour mark he was able to truly give Chelsea a headache. His ball to James Milner for the Reds’ equaliser was a peach. Nathaniel Clyne – 6 – Did well on his return to the first-team against such tough competition and stopped Eden Hazard from causing too much trouble. Substitute: Sadio Mane – 5 – Wasn’t on the pitch long enough to really create much, and saw an opportunity curtailed by a handball in the box. Simon Mignolet – 7 – Click the right arrow above to see how we rated Liverpool’s players in their 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Anfield… – Was caught out by David Luiz for Chelsea’s superb opener, but didn’t let it faze him though and denied the Blues moments later with a smart save. He then earned full redemption with his penalty save from Diego Costa. 13 Philippe Coutinho – 6 – The Brazilian made some superb touches to play in team-mates and linked well with James Milner when the left-back got forward. 13 13 Emre Can – 6 – Didn’t keep possession well enough and as a result couldn’t contribute much as the Reds attempted to haul themselves back into the game. Dejan Lovren – 6 – Solid enough, and didn’t too a lot wrong. His urge to shoot from long-range is an irritant, though. last_img read more

Silicon Valley: An alternative Detroit

first_imgSAN CARLOS – Like many Silicon Valley engineers, Martin Eberhard loves cars, especially fast ones. But the self-described “closet gearhead” didn’t feel comfortable buying a hot rod that guzzled gas from the Middle East or some other troubled region. So three years ago, Eberhard and friend Marc Tarpenning launched Tesla Motors Inc. Their goal: to design a sports car that would go as fast as a Ferrari or Porsche, but run on electricity. With about 80 employees, Tesla just raised $40 million from high-profile investors including Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin. It plans to start selling its first model next year. “I’m not the only person that would like to buy a car that’s beautiful and fun to drive but also remain on the moral high ground,” said Eberhard, 45, who sold his previous company, electronic book maker NuvoMedia, for $187 million in 2000. “None of the energy that goes into an electric car comes from the Middle East.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2Silicon Valley thinks it can do what Detroit could not – create a thriving business selling electric cars. In the 1990s, General Motors and other automakers spent billions to develop battery-powered vehicles, but they flopped because they couldn’t travel more than 100 miles before being recharged. By tapping the Bay Area’s engineering expertise and culture of innovation, clusters of entrepreneurs, engineers and venture capitalists here are racing to bring their electric cars to market. Unlike Detroit and Japanese automakers, they’re working on high-performance sports cars for wealthy car enthusiasts. At least three Silicon Valley startups – Tesla Motors of San Carlos, Wrightspeed Inc. of Woodside and battery maker Li-on Cells of Menlo Park – are among a cadre of companies nationwide developing electric cars or components. Commuter Cars Corp., based in Spokane, Wash., last year started selling its Tango T600, an ultra-narrow, two-seat electric car that claims actor George Clooney among its customers. AC Propulsion Inc., a San Dimas-based maker of electric car motors and charging systems, is supplying Tesla and Wrightspeed with key components. As fuel costs rise, technology improves and consumers seek more environmentally friendly vehicles, these companies see potential in a niche largely neglected by the big automakers. But some industry analysts question whether electric cars could ever become cheap enough, or have the battery life to compete in the mainstream auto market. “To attract consumers en masse, the price has to be low enough where they can see the break-even point,” said Anthony Pratt, an automotive analyst at J.D. Power & Associates. The success of Toyota’s Prius and other hybrids, which run on a combination of gas and electricity, has shown there’s a market for eco-friendly cars. Page and Brin, Google’s billionaire founders, are known to drive Priuses. Tesla’s Eberhard thinks the Prius is “terrifically ugly” and believes other wealthy car enthusiasts feel the same way. In Tesla’s workshop in San Carlos, about 20 miles south of San Francisco, Eberhard and Tarpenning offered a glimpse of their first model – a sleek two-seater that resembles a Lotus Elise – but would not allow photographs. They plan to unveil it at an event for prospective buyers next month in Santa Monica. “We’re building a car for people who like to drive,” Eberhard said. “This is not a punishment car.” While mum on details and pricing, Eberhard said the first Tesla model will be able to travel more than 200 miles on one charge, making it good for commutes and Sunday drives but not long road trips. With lithium-ion batteries, the car can be plugged into any electrical outlet. Named after the inventor Nikola Tesla, the company has big ambitions. Tesla executives talk about building a “new kind of car company” and hope to eventually offer several models, starting at the high end and bringing down the price as technology improves. But the company must first undergo rigorous government safety and environmental tests – a rigorous process the founders didn’t anticipate. “The car business had more challenges than we expected,” Tarpenning said. Ian Wright, who left Tesla to start Wrightspeed last year, is aiming at the same $3 billion market for high-performance sports cars. The New Zealand-born electrical engineer spent nine months retooling an Ariel Atom race car to run on an electric battery – a prototype of the car he eventually hopes to sell. He frequently takes prospective investors – and reporters – for a spin in the hills near his Woodside home. With no doors, roof or windshield, a drive in Wrightspeed’s X1 feels like a roller coaster ride and can leave passengers wind-beaten and queasy. It accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in three seconds, making it one of the world’s fastest production cars. Last year, Wright’s X1 beat a Porsche and a Ferrari in separate races. “I wouldn’t describe myself as a radical environmentalist,” Wright said. “I think my customers will buy my cars for performance. The energy efficiency is nice to have, but it’s not the reason they will buy the car.” Wrightspeed is still raising its first round of financing and remains a one-man startup. Many venture capitalists are “serious car nuts” but are nervous about investing in a car company because they don’t know enough about the industry, Wright said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
