Inquirer 7 top UAAP 80 women’s volleyball players: Week 8

first_imgScarlett Johansson, Sterling K. Brown among SAG Awards presenters As the Final Four picture of the UAAP Season 80 women’s volleyball tournament starts to take its shape, so do the narratives of some of its teams.National University is on a downfall, University of Santo Tomas is starting to come alive, and Adamson University is ready to shake things up even further.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownDe La Salle already RSVP’d its attendance for the big dance while Ateneo is looking to join its rival.With that said, here are the players who shone the brightest this week. Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Her scoring outburst in Week 8 propelled Tolentino from no. 16 in the scoring table to no. 12 and bumping her scoring average from 10.55 points to 12.18 points-per-game.3.

UST has so far won two straight games after their ridiculous five-game losing streak, and one of those wins happened this week in an absolute brilliant display against NU.The Golden Tigresses feasted on the hollow Lady Bulldogs, who haven’t won a game in the second round, in four sets, 22-25, 25-23, 25-21, 25-9, and Rondina let out the loudest roar at the hallowed Smart Araneta Coliseum.Like Muhammad Ali triumphing over the blinded Joe Frazier, Rondina won the war against Jaja Santiago scoring 25 points against her taller rival and maintaining her scoring average of 20-plus a game, 21.54 to be exact.UST manage to cling on for dear life as its 4-7 record means its still in the hunt for a Final Four spot.2.

Liberians Urged to Be Selfless

first_imgSelfless service to humanity deserves recognition to encourage many others to give themselves to the service of others, Brigadier General Rudolf F. Kolaco Sr., (rtd) told a large gathering of Liberians at the gowning and certificating ceremony on Saturday of US retired Joseph Jackie Brown in Brewerville, near Monrovia.BG Kolaco, director general of the National Bureau of Veterans Affairs, described Brown (rtd) as a veteran who distinguished himself with his unit with the United States forces in Iraq.“To become a veteran,” Director Kolaco said, “you must be a soldier with five distinguished characteristics which include being a follower, being faithful, familiar, a fighter and being efficient.” He reminded the audience, including a full house of the Governance Council of Liberia, family members and hundreds of residents of Brewerville, that Brown, while serving with his Unit in Iraq at a critical point came under attack, exposing his life and those of his American colleagues to danger.“With zeal and tenacity,” he said Brown used his training and holding on to a 50 Caliber sub-machine gun, was able to overcome the enemy and saved the lives of his colleagues, including his commander.He said a good soldier must be disciplined, and with brief reflection of himself during his service in the Armed Forces of Liberia, noted that a good soldier must grow with time.When Brown retired, he chose to return to his country, Liberia to make his contribution to the cause of justice and fair-play, he told the gathering who cheered him.“On behalf of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and that of Defense Minister Brownie Samukai,” Director Kolaco told him, “we congratulate you and urge you to continue to do your best to help your people.”Earlier, Mrs. Musu K. Thompson, president of the National Governors Council said her members were there in their numbers to demonstrate their appreciation to Brown for his services to humanity, and for not forgetting about the country of his birth.“You can see that all the representatives of the 15 counties are here to honor you as our son,” she said. “For you to return to support your country means you love Liberia.”She said the Council decided to gown him and award a certificate of appreciation because he did not forget his family and country. She reminded the gathering that their presence was simply to honor a dutiful son who had returned to help rebuild their broken country.Responding, Brown in a solemn but confident voice narrated his eight years sojourn in the United States and his experiences in Iraq, during Operation Iraqi Freedom launched by former US President George Bush against the regime of the late Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein in 2003.Brown, 31, praised his parents for their support and called on Liberians to honor their parents, with particular emphasis on Liberian mothers. He spoke about the honor done him by President Bush, which resulted to the cancellation of Liberia’s US debts and the US sending American soldiers to Liberia to assist in the Ebola fight, as results of the sacrifices of Liberians who helped the United States in its role as global leader.Brown was the first Cybercrime Director at the Ministry of National Security and had rejected salary for the last five years, he said. He has an associate degree in computer information systems; bachelors in political science and masters in public administration.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Alan Pardew to sign new Crystal Palace deal before FA Cup final

first_img1 Alan Pardew Alan Pardew is set to commit his future to Crystal Palace by signing a new contract ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup final with Manchester United.It is believed the manager will pen an extension on his current deal, which runs to 2018, despite a poor run of league form during the second half of the season, that ended with the Eagles finishing 15th.Details of the new contract remain undisclosed but Pardew said: “We are probably going to [sign] it before the game.”The manager has done much to rebuild his reputation since returning to Palace in January 2015, and victory on Saturday would represent his finest achievement.It would also mark ten years since his West Ham team almost won the 2006 FA Cup against Liverpool, while Palace lost to United in the 1990 final while he was a player.Beyond the personal satisfaction, however, Pardew believes it would also benefit English coaches.Since Joe Royle’s Everton defeated United in the 1995 final, Harry Redknapp – with Portsmouth in 2008 – is the only English manager to win the FA Cup and none have won the Premier League.With English coaches Gary Neville and Paul Clement sacked by Valencia and Derby this season, Pardew is concerned about their collective reputation and said: “It would be good for this club and English coaches to win it.“I’ve come so close, as an English manager probably the closest for a long time, to winning it. Harry won it with Portsmouth. But we get a really bad press as English coaches and managers.“I could name numerous situations where foreign managers get a kinder press than English managers. [But] I want to talk about the final.”last_img read more

THE HOOPS REPORT: CELTIC WILL GO 14 POINTS CLEAR AS RANGERS GO INTO ADMINISTRATION

first_imgFROM NEIL DOHERTY IN GLASGOW: The future of Rangers is in serious doubt after the club lodged legal papers signalling its intent to go into administration.If the move goes ahead over €56M of debts, Rangers will be deducted 10 points – giving Celtic a 14 point lead in the title race as today’s table stands.Celtic fans of course will insist that Neil Lennon and his players ignore that and win the title outright – in other words by more than ten points. An SPL statement said if administrators are appointed “a 10-point deduction would apply immediately to its total points in the League Championship”.“The club would also be embargoed from registering any new players,” it adds.“A notice of the intention to appoint administrators alone does not trigger the sporting sanctions – it is the actual appointment of administrators which does.“If administrators are appointed we will seek an early meeting with them to discuss their plans for Rangers FC”. If Rangers do go bust – and they just might – this does not concern Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell.“This would have no material effect on Celtic. We look after ourselves,” Lawwell told BBC Scotland. “We don’t rely on any other club. We are in a decent position, we’re very strong.”Celtic’s financials for the second half of 2011 showed a profit of £180,000 – significantly down from the £7m at the end of the previous year. But it was still a profit.Celtic lead reigning champions Rangers by four points in the Scottish Premier League and, unlike the Ibrox side, are still in both domestic cup competitions.“Our aspirations and horizons are to dominate in Scotland but also beyond that; we want to compete at the highest level again in Europe,” said Lawwell in his BBC interview. “We have a stand-alone strategy, a stand-alone financial plan and a robustness hopefully that will take us through that.“Times are pretty tough. I don’t think it’s appropriate for us to talk about any individual club, these things are hypothetical at the moment.“I think we’ve a view, a very strong view on certain circumstances but we’ll only share that at the right time.“In terms of Scottish football, I’m disappointed to look at the performance of Scottish teams in Europe and the effect that that has on co-efficient. “I’m disappointed to see that financial constraints and problems in other nations as well.”THE HOOPS REPORT: CELTIC WILL GO 14 POINTS CLEAR AS RANGERS GO INTO ADMINISTRATION was last modified: February 13th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:THE HOOPS REPORT: CELTIC WILL GO 14 POINTS CLEAR AS RANGERSlast_img read more

DONEGAL SFC: NAOMH CONAILL AND ARDARA BATTLE IT OUT AGAIN FOR SEMI-FINAL SPOT

first_imgPaddy McGrath will be a key man for Ardara tonight as they seek to put local rivals Naomh Conaill to the sword and book their place in the last four of the Donegal SFC.Naomh Conaill face off with bitter rivals Ardara tonight for a coveted spot in the last four of the Donegal SFC.Naomh Conaill and Ardara played out an enthralling quarter-final clash at Tir Chonaill Park on Saturday, but a late, late free from Brendan Nelis secured a relay for Ardara.Ardara had led by five points at one stage in the second-half, but Naomh Conaill inspired by county Anthony Thompson powered back to lead as the clock ticked into injury-time. However, Ardara had the final say, and in doing so forced a replay with their neighbours which takes place tonight at Mac Cumhaill Park, Ballybofey.The prize for the winners is a semi-final showdown with current Donegal SFC holders Glenswilly this weekend.The last time the pair met before this year’s Donegal SFC was in 2009.That game also went to a replay, and in the replay extra-time had to be played to separate the sides. Naomh Conaill eventually edged Ardara out after extra-time, but it was one hell of a battle.You wouldn’t bet against extra-time being required for tonight’s clash between the old rivals.Paddy Campbell’s side will head into tonight’s clash again as slight favourites, Anthony Thompson, Leon Thompson, and Dermot Molloy will all be key players for Naomh Conaill tonight.Kenneth Doherty was the best player on the pitch last Saturday, and Ardara will need him to exert his influence over the game again tonight.While the likes of Paddy McGrath, Gareth Concarr and Martin Shovlin will also be expected to play significant roles. It promises to be another cracking game, and it will be another closely fought affair.Glenties should edge it though, although this game could go to extra-time again.VERDICT – GLENTIES DONEGAL SFC: NAOMH CONAILL AND ARDARA BATTLE IT OUT AGAIN FOR SEMI-FINAL SPOT was last modified: October 22nd, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:ArdaraDonegal SFCDonegal SFC quarter-finalGAAHome-page SportNaomh ConaillnewsSportlast_img read more
