Key players’ absence, Tenorio’s struggles too much for Ginebra to hurdle

first_imgPhoto by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netANTIPOLO — Alaska undefeated run in 2018 could be attributed to its relentless approach on both ends of the floor.That was the case again on Sunday in the Aces’ 97-83 win over Barangay Ginebra where they came alive in the second half after a lackluster first two quarters.ADVERTISEMENT Alaska coach Alex Compton, though, isn’t discounting the fact that his team was also fortunate enough to face the Gin Kings, who are shorthanded.Ginebra played without its giant Greg Slaughter, who is averaging 20.7 points and 10.3 rebounds, due to a strained hamstring. Joe Devance was also sidelined with a foot injury.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk“Honestly, they’re missing two of their number one picks. So it was a tough situation for them. They’re missing a 6-foot-7 vet who knows how to win, and a guy who I think is gonna win an MVP soon,” said Compton.Sonny Thoss echoed Compton’s sentiments, noting that Slaughter’s absence gave him more room to work and be the fulcrum of the Aces’ offense.

We were lucky,” Alaska big man Vic Manuel said.With Tenorio firing blanks and the team getting frustrated in the second half, Ginebra suffered its second consecutive setback to fall to an even 2-2 slate.ADVERTISEMENT Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Almazan vows to comeback stronger after finals heartbreak Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew View comments Aces lean on strong third quarter to whip Gin Kings Nonito Donaire vs Naoya Inoue is BWAA 2019 Fight of the Year MOST READ Newsome sets focus on helping Bolts open new PBA season on right track Michael Porter Jr. stays patient as playing time increaseslast_img read more

Low incomes show Donegal is being left behind – Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig

first_imgDonegal’s low incomes figures are proof that the county is being left behind, according to Donegal County Councillor Michael Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig.New CSO figures have revealed that Donegal people have the lowest average incomes in Ireland. The average household in Donegal takes in €32,259, which is €12,000 below the national average and half of the highest earning region in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown ( €66,203).The figures from 2016 are “shocking”, says Glenties area Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig. “They only confirm what everyone in County Donegal has known for a long time, that we have been left behind by the political establishment,” he said.The Independent Cllr has criticised Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil for the current state of affairs. He said: “Since the foundation of the state, this county has been neglected, deprived of infrastructure and abandoned by the politicians we elect to represent us. “We are now raising our children to emigrate, knowing full well that they are not coming back because, knowing the statistics in this article, they won’t be able to afford a mortgage to buy or build a home. And the policies of Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael mean that there is no social housing for them.”Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig is calling for a change for the future of the county. He said: “This is a cycle that we need to break. We can’t keep voting for the same parties and expect them to act differently this time because of some promise they make at election time. We owe it to our children to change the way we vote and the way we organize ourselves.”Low incomes show Donegal is being left behind – Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig was last modified: June 24th, 2019 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:Cllr Michael Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuigincomeslast_img read more

SA swimmers stun the world

first_img16 August 2004Roland Schoeman, Lyndon Ferns, Darian Townsend and Ryk Neethling took the four-by-100 metres freestyle relay by storm on Sunday night, beating some of the biggest names in swimming and shattering the world record to take South Africa’s first Olympic gold medal since the marathon in Atlanta eight years ago.Schoeman, Ferns, Townsend and Neethling smashed the previous world mark by half a second, clocking 3 minutes 13.17 seconds. It was a dominant performance by the South African quartet, and it started with Roland Schoeman, who destroyed the opposition with a devastating first leg that gave the South Africans a lead that was never closely challenged.The further the race progressed, the clearer it became that the four swimmers were about to land South Africa’s first gold medal since Atlanta, where Penny Heyns won double-gold in the pool and Josiah Thugwane captured a shocking win in the marathon.When Neethling touched to complete victory by more than a second over The Netherlands, with the USA in third, there was pandemonium in the South African lane.That the win had come in world record time was simply icing on the cake. The South Africans had crushed the best the rest of the world had to offer. Defending champions and world record holders Australia, with Ian Thorpe and Michael Klim, could only manage sixth place. An unbelievable final leg by Pieter van den Hoogenbrand still left the Netherlands almost a full second behind SA.And the United States, despite drafting Ian Crocker and Michael Phelps for the first two legs and world number one Jason Lezak for the final leg, had to settle for bronze.Hard-fought win in hockeyIn the men’s hockey competition, South Africa opened up with a hard-fought and courageous victory over Argentina, ranked six places above South Africa in the world rankings.Craig Jackson and company fell one behind the South Americans after Mario Almada netted with a great reverse stick shot. However, from that point on, Jackson in central defence, and goalkeeper Davie Staniforth, put up a wall the Argentinians couldn’t break down.Striker Greg Nicol then did what was necessary to secure victory, firstly scoring from a penalty corner, then adding a second goal with a shot from the field. It is his final international tournament before retirement, but Nicol proved that he remains one of the world’s greatest strikers ever.Archery: Lewis advancesArcher Kirsten Lewis overcame strong winds and India’s Dola Banerjee to advance in the round of 32 in the women’s individual 70 metres. Lewis won 141-131 against the thirteenth-ranked India star; no mean achievement considering that she’s ranked fifty-second.In other events South Africans fared less well. The beach volleyball pairing of Leigh-Anne Naidoo and Jula Willand went down to second seeds Adriana Behar and Shelda Bede of Brazil, while Gareth Blanckenberg finished twenty-second and sixteenth in the first two races of sailing’s laser class.Anriette Schoeman struggled with the heat and failed to challenge in the women’s cycling road race, and badminton’s Chris Dednam was thrashed 15-1, 15-0 in the men’s singles.last_img read more

It was censored even destroyed but Canadians can now see Multiple Maniacs

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment This week the prestigious Criterion Collection unleashed shock comedy director John Waters’ 1970 film Multiple Maniacs on Blu-ray and DVD for its first official release.The underground comedy follows his drag-queen starlet Divine and gang of murderous misfits through a satire of volatile ’60s politics and violence. An assault on good taste and hippie sentiment, the dirty little flick remains one of the filmmaker’s most aggressively outrageous efforts and, for Canadians, the release is particularly special given that Multiple Maniacs is technically still banned from sensitive Canuck eyeballs by our ratings board, as Waters cheerfully recalls.“I submitted it to some sort of Canadian distribution centre for underground movies and then I never heard anything back. Eventually I wrote a letter and got back a receipt from the (Ontario) censor board that said ‘destroyed.’ That’s the best blurb that I’ve ever gotten, but it did infuriate me. That’s real censorship,” the now 70-year-old filmmaker told the Star recently. Advertisement READ MORE Advertisement Facebook Login/Register With: Twitter Advertisementlast_img read more
