I didn’t have second thoughts taking the kind of shot I needed to,” Saso told the Inquirer, minutes after submitting a six-under-par 66 that keyed the Philippines’ golden sweep of women’s golf at Pondok Indah Golf Course here Sunday afternoon.Near the green, while Saso was about to putt after studying her line intently, her Japanese father Masa was a nervous wreck, muttering in broken Filipino, loud enough for the Inquirer to hear: “Ilapit mo lang (just putt it close). Two putts, panalo pa din tayo (we will still win).”“I was going to go [hole it] no matter what,” Saso said later.And just like that, something never before done by the Philippines was accomplished by a troika of young ladies in a sport few people back home expected would give the country its biggest glory in the 45-nation Olympics of the region.Draped with the PH flag of three stars and a sun, Bianca Pagdanganan and LK Go were whooping it up somewhere near the giant scoreboard.Pagdanganan did her part, too, by carding a similar 66.ADVERTISEMENT Go, whom coach Rick Gibson would later say was the comical lass who held the team together, failed to count with a 73.The ladies and the other gold medalist, weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz, will arrive in Manila on Tuesday.“This is the biggest thing that has happened to me,” said the 20-year-old Pagdanganan, who helped University of Arizona to the US NCAA title just a few months back. “This is far better (than the NCAA). I’m playing for my country, the country of my birth.“Nothing can top what I am feeling right now,” she added, just after Saso had holed out and waited for the Chinese, Liu Wenbo, make a mess out of her 72nd hole with a quadruple bogey.Gibson broke down while being interviewed, while the girls held their composure and celebrated with family and friends who made the trip here and shared their journey to history.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Golf roundup View comments ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins JAKARTA—Faced with a daunting second shot from 210 yards on a par-5 finishing hole, Yuka Saso had no qualms taking a 4-iron and attempt the shot that will define her young career—and win the individual event and seal the team championship in the 18th Asian Games.Bones Floro, the nonplaying skipper who helped put this team together, was in a golf cart on the pathway, some 80 yards from Saso’s spot.

The Government of Liberia, through a hired legal counsel in the United States of America, took a bold step in pursuit of Melvin Johnson, who the complainant referred to as ‘the companion’ of Ellen Corkrum, by filing a grievance against him with the State of Georgia (USA) Bar, of which Johnson is a member. In a 5 page letter dated May 28, 2014, Stephen M. Schneebaum of Fox Rothschild LLP conveyed GOL’s complaint alleging that Johnson, while in Liberia, “violated the Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct… through engagement in acts both illegal and reflecting moral turpitude.” Such alleged acts, according to the letter, include defrauding the Liberia Airport Authority, which was under the directorship of his ‘social and/or romantic partner’ Ellen Corkrum at the time, and attempting to practice law in the Republic of Liberia when his application for admission to the Liberia Bar was never passed upon by the board of examiners. However, GOL goes further to allege that Johnson’s actions constitute economic sabotage, resulting in a Special Grand Jury indictment and seeks punitive action upon him from State of Georgia Bar, as well as his extradition from the USA to face the charges on Liberian soil. Johnson, who was recently removed from the post, Chief Municipal Court Judge for the City of Lithonia, Georgia, is still practicing law in the State of Georgia through his law firm, Melvin Johnson and Associates, Inc.“The facts as set out in Count Two of the indictment… and the documents tendered to the Grand Jury in support show that funds supposedly intended to be used for review and upgrade of security at RIA were remitted to the IOLTA account of Mr. Johnson’s law firm, Melvin Johnson and Associates, Inc.,” the letter submits. “[This entity appears to be the law firm owned and controlled by Mr. Johnson and operating in Stone Mountain, Georgia. To the best of our knowledge, no member of the firm is a Member of the Bar of the Republic of Liberia. The firm was also indicted by the Special Grand Jury for Monserrado County.] Why and how that arrangement was made is unknown to us, since there is no reason to believe that Mr. Johnson had any role to play in providing security services to the LAA. [IOLTA accounts are normally held by law firms to segregate interest earned by client funds in their temporary custody. There is no evidence known to us to suggest that any security contractor was a client of Mr. Johnson or his law firm, and of course if it were, that would implicate a direct conflict of interest, given that Mr. Johnson also claims to have represented the LAA.]”Ellen Corkrum “It is the Government’s contention”, continues the letter, “that Ms. Corkrum misused her position for her own personal pecuniary gain and that of others, and she was indicted by the same Special Grand Jury that returned a true bill against Mr. Johnson. She is accused of having diverted a significant contract for runway renovation at Liberia’s international airport to a shell company, of misusing public funds intended for the purchase of computer hardware and peripherals, and of conspiring with Mr. Johnson to steer funds intended to pay for airport security to him without any expectation that he or his company would be qualified, able, or willing to perform the work. Mr. Johnson and Ms. Corkrum departed from Liberia – having been informed that their conduct described in the indictment was under investigation – in mid-February, 2013.Johnson’s companion, Ellen Corkrum, who made a name in Liberia for having secretly taped conversations with numerous high-ranking government officials including President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, implicating them in alleged corrupt practices which the letter addresses: “Apparently in an effort to forestall or block a criminal investigation, he and Ms. Corkrum began to arrange meetings with Government ministers and other high officials of the Republic of Liberia. The purposes of these meetings apparently were to enlist support for Ms. Corkrum in preemptively defeating any criminal charges, and eliciting embarrassing or compromising statements from Government figures that could then be used to discredit them. Ms. Corkrum carried with her a hidden tape-recording device, the presence of which she did not disclose to her interlocutors, and made an audiotape of each of her meetings. Mr. Johnson was in attendance with her, and colluded with her in carrying out this campaign of intimidation intending, perhaps, to lead to either financial or political blackmail.“Ms. Corkrum and Mr. Johnson have released several of the tapes for broadcast by mass media operating in Liberia. Some in the press have speculated that they are part of a political agenda of the couple, portraying themselves as “whistleblowers” and “white knight” characters perhaps available to offer themselves as candidates for political office. Mr. Johnson’s voice may be heard on some if not all of the recordings. There is no question that he was physically present, and that he participated in the illicit taping. Both Ms. Corkrum and Mr. Johnson have appeared on live radio talk shows broadcast in Liberia, in which he has held himself out as an adviser to Ms. Corkrum in all aspects of this illegal operation.In Liberia, as in many States in the United States (including Georgia), it is a criminal act to record a conversation with another person without his or her consent. The relevant statutory law in Liberia is Chapter 19 of the Criminal Code (“offenses against the right of privacy”), sections 19.1(c), 19.2(b), and 19.2(c). Exhibit E. Divulging the contents of an illegally-recorded conversation to others is a separate offense, of which both Ms. Corkrum and Mr. Johnson are likely guilty as well.”The full text of the letter is published with this story and in print on page 8 of the June 9, 2014 edition of the Daily Observer.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Pochettino has been in charge at Tottenham since 2014, while Klopp is in his third season with Liverpool, making the forthcoming campaign a watershed moment for both bosses.After finishing third in the Premier League in 2015 and second last season, Tottenham suddenly find themselves in danger of being stuck in reverse at a time when they should be putting their foot on the gas.Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane was the top scorer in the Premier League last season © AFP/File / Don EMMERTBuilding his team around England stars Harry Kane and Dele Alli and, with Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Son Heung-Min all influential in their own right, Pochettino has assembled a group capable of beating any side in the country on their day.But the 45-year-old Argentine and his players have come up short two years in a row as the pressure of the title race proved too much for them.Last season, they had Chelsea in their sights in the closing weeks before an FA Cup semi-final loss to the Blues triggered a stumble that saw them finish seven points behind the champions.Making up a deficit of that order won’t be easy this season as Tottenham have the thorny issue of playing their home games at Wembley while White Hart Lane is being redeveloped.Wembley wasn’t a welcoming arena for Tottenham when they played their European fixtures there last season, prompting claims that the high tempo pressing game Pochettino prefers was ill suited to the English national stadium’s large pitch.Adding to Pochettino’s discomfort, he has so far gone through the summer transfer window without making a single signing.While Tottenham’s title rivals have shattered records with their lavish spending, Pochettino heads into the new campaign with a weaker squad than last year after selling England right-back Kyle Walker to Manchester City.– Limited success –Publicly, Pochettino backs chairman Daniel Levy’s cautious approach in an historically expensive market.Yet the former Southampton coach might not be so sanguine if the window closes without fresh faces finally arriving in north London.Liverpool splashed out a club record £43.9 million ($57 million) on Roma winger Mohamed Salah (right) © AFP/File / Christof STACHE“We are working, trying to add some players to the squad,” he said.“Our idea was, the same as before, to try to provide the team with more strength and try to sign a few players before the end of the transfer window.”At Anfield, Klopp has spent the summer trying to close the gap on Tottenham and the rest of the Premier League’s big guns with only limited success.The German splashed out a club record £43.9 million ($57 million) on Roma winger Mohamed Salah and added Hull defender Andrew Robertson to the mix.But Robertson is unlikely to be a game changer, while Salah’s last taste of the Premier League with Chelsea was utterly forgettable.Klopp has also failed to land Southampton defender Virgil Van Dijk and Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita, while having to fend off Barcelona’s attempts to sign Reds playmaker Philippe Coutinho.“Until the 31st of August we run through the world with open eyes,” Klopp said of his transfer problems.“It’s not that we decide on our own, it’s also about other clubs.”After finishing fourth last season, Liverpool need to rebuff the perception they took advantage of down years from Arsenal and Manchester United.Having enjoyed unprecedented success with Borussia Dortmund, Klopp has proved he can beat the odds before, but winning Liverpool’s first title since 1990 would be the 50-year-old’s finest achievement.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp (left) and Tottenham Hotspur’s Mauricio Pochettino are under pressure to turn potential into silverware © AFP/File / JUSTIN TALLISLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 8 – Under pressure to turn tantalising potential into tangible prizes, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp face the acid test of their talents this season.Despite being feted as teams on the rise, Tottenham and Liverpool have yet to win a single trophy under their current managers.

The transfer window is still not officially open, but Premier League clubs are already moving to improve their squads ahead of the 2017/18 season.Manchester City have added Bernardo Silva in a £43m deal, and Arsenal announced Sead Kolasinac will move to the Emirates on a free transfer when his Schalke contract expires at the end of June.But these deals are just a taste of what’s to come, with Premier League clubs expected to smash the overall transfer spending record of £880m, set last summer.talkSPORT take a look at five of the hottest transfer rumours right now involving Premier League clubs, and rank them by the likelihood they will happen before the window closes at the end of August.Click the right arrow, above, to see all the rumours… 1. Chelsea to sign Romelu Lukaku from Everton – Romelu Lukaku left Chelsea on a permanent deal three years ago, and his return to Stamford Bridge this summer seems to be the most likely transfer to go ahead. The 24-year-old has revealed talks with an unnamed club are in progress: We are now in talks with the [unnamed] club and I am looking forward. I want to play in the Champions League and try to win the Premier League – that would be best of all. With a move to Manchester United reportedly off the cards, it seems the Blues are the only team left in the running for the Belgium striker. Everton do not want to sell their prize asset and are requesting upwards of £80m for Lukaku, but Chelsea can spend all the money they want on a striker who is considered one of Europes best despite his youth. 5 5 5 5 3. Virgil van Dijk to sign for Chelsea, Manchester City or Liverpool from Southampton – The future of Virgil van Dijk was always going to be a key transfer story this summer, and it has not failed to disappoint in the early weeks. Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool have all been credited with an interest in the Dutch defender. The Reds had reportedly been leading the race for the 25-year-olds signature, but the Merseyside club have since abandoned their pursuit after Southampton reported Jurgen Klopps side to the Premier League over an alleged illegal approach for Van Dijk. And with Liverpool seemingly out of contention, Chelsea and City have emerged as the frontrunners to land the defender who is rumoured to have had a £75million valuation placed on him by the Saints. 5 2. Ryan Bertrand to leave Southampton for Manchester City, Liverpool or Chelsea – Along with Van Dijk, Southampton could be set to lose a second defender to a Premier League club this summer. Ryan Bertrand, formerly of Chelsea, has established himself as one of Englands best full-backs since moving to Saints, and has earned admiring glances from Manchester City, Liverpool and his former employers at Stamford Bridge. Reports suggest Bertrand has told friends he will leave St Marys this summer, and he is an appealing target due to his status as a home-grown player and his top flight experience. A move to the Etihad seems most likely as Pep Guardiola has stepped up his interest and money is of no impact to City, as well as Chelsea. Saints are unlikely to want to sell to Liverpool given their transfer history and the accusations involved in the Van Dijk interest, revealed earlier. 4. Manchester United to capture Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata – Manchester Uniteds attempts to sign Atletico Madrids Antoine Griezmann have proven unsuccessful due to the LaLiga clubs transfer ban, so Jose Mourinho has looked to Atletis city rivals for a new striker. Alvaro Morata was handed his Los Blancos debut by Mourinho, and the Portuguese is keen to reunite with the Spain international as an alternative to Griezmann and Evertons Romelu Lukaku. Chelsea have also been touted to make a move for Morata, but reports suggest he is keen to link up with Mourinho once again. A move to Old Trafford seems a perfect fit for the 24-year-old, though it is certainly not guaranteed as AC Milan have been making a big money move for him and Morata himself wants to remain with Real into next season. 5. Kylian Mbappe to leave Monaco for Arsenal – click the right arrow to see the hottest transfer rumours right now – Despite the transfer window not yet officially opening, the Gunners have already submitted two offers to Monaco for wonderkid Mbappe. The France teenager enjoyed a wonderful breakthrough season in Ligue 1, scoring 15 league and six Champions League goals as ASM won the French title and reached the semi-finals of Europes premier competition. Real Madrid are also keen on Mbappe, but Arsenal have had an £87m bid turned down and have followed that up with an offer said to be worth £120m. Despite the incredible money being thrown around, Mbappe has hardly pushed for a move away from the Stade Louis II, and it seems unlikely he will depart for north London this summer.

Sinn Féin’s Matt Carthy has said that Fianna Fáil candidate Thomas Byrne is “clearly in hysterics over recent opinion polls and needs to calm down.”The Midlands Northwest candidate was responding to a statement issued by Byrne which claims that Sinn Féin wants to “turn the clock back to 1973” with regards to the EU.Cllr Carthy said: “Thomas Byrne is clearly in hysterics over recent opinion polls and has resorted to levelling misinformed attacks at me and my party. He needs to take a deep breath, calm down and stop misrepresenting my position on Europe. “People are rightly concerned about the direction that the European Union is taking and how it treats Ireland. They want a fairer deal for Ireland. They want a democratic Europe where the size of member states doesn’t impact on how they are treated. They don’t want to see further powers handed over from Ireland to Europe.“The people do not want or need another yes-man or woman in Europe. The want someone who will stand up for them and for Ireland’s interests and who will not be afraid to be a confident and critical voice.“Thomas Byrne is clearly worried about his prospects in the upcoming election. As a former Fianna Fáil backbencher he supported every cut, every tax and every attack that government levelled on ordinary people. He would be better off examining his own record than resorting to misrepresenting mine.” ELECTION 2014: “CALM DOWN, CALM DOWN” CARTHY TELLS BYRNE was last modified: May 6th, 2014 by John2Share 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:European electionMatt CarthyThomas Byrne
