Yap respects Garcia’s decision to limit his minutes in OT loss

first_imgLoss to San Miguel will make Rain or Shine stronger, says Garcia Marcos monument beside Aquino’s stirs Tarlac town Garcia explained that Yap’s minutes suffered with other guards like Chris Tiu, Jericho Cruz, and Maverick Ahanmisi playing superb, earning them minutes in those crucial stages.“I was looking to run and wanted to try to get San Miguel tired, and since we were playing well – Gabe (Norwood) was playing the three and four position just to change the tempo of the game – it was working. So I just stuck to the people who were really working hard on both sides,” he said.Garcia cleared that it was no dig at Yap, saying he wants the veteran guard “more involved in the next game.”Yap understands his situation, knowing he still has to blend in with his new crew.“It’s equal opportunity here, so for me, I didn’t expect to get 35 minutes a game here. I have to be ready and I have to accept whatever the decision is because the team is winning. I don’t want to ruin their system if I demand playing time. I have to be the one to adapt to the system.”ADVERTISEMENT Like Garcia, Yap is looking at this defeat as a way for the Elasto Painters to show their resiliency as they look to rebound next Friday against Meralco.“This is where the character of the team will be tested, on how we’ll bounce back.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next He believes that coach Caloy Garcia opted to go for his old reliables more during those crucial moments.“It was coach’s call.

European Union supports free and independent media

European Union supports free and independent media

first_imgDear Editor,Today the European Union joins with Guyana and the rest of the world in celebrating World Press Freedom Day. Free, diverse and independent media are indispensable to promoting and protecting democracy worldwide. A free press and freedom of expression are among the very same foundations of democracy, contribute to stable, inclusive, and resilient societies and can help defuse tensions and contain conflicts. The EU supports the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes ensuring universal access to information and protection of freedom of expression.Supporting independent, quality and ethical journalism is essential. By facilitating the free flow of quality and well-researched information on matters of public interest, and by acting as the “public’s watchdog”, independent media are the basis of a participatory democracy and a tool to make governments accountable for their actions.The EU condemns the worldwide increase of threats and violations against journalists and media professionals’ offline and in cyberspace. All states are expected to fulfil their global obligations to protect freedom of expression and the safety of journalists by providing a supportive legal environment and prosecuting all attacks against journalists. The EU consistently opposes – in bilateral contacts with third countries as well as in multilateral and regional fora – any legislation, regulation or political pressure that limits freedom of expression and takes concrete steps to prevent and respond to attacks against journalists and bloggers.The EU Guidelines on Freedom of Expression Online and Offline, adopted in 2014, (and their continued implementation), reaffirm the EU’s determination to promote freedom of opinion and of expression as rights to be exercised by everyone everywhere, based on the principles of equality, non-discrimination and universality, through any media and regardless of frontiers.Yours faithfully,AmbassadorJernej VidetičDelegation of theEuropean Unionlast_img read more

1 in custody as investigation continues

first_imgGood Hope fire/homicide– IAC calls for end to haemorrhaging of innocent lives By Kizzy ColemanPolice have arrested and are interrogating a man for the murder of the two Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara) rice farmers who were killed after bandits set their home ablaze on Sunday night.Dead: Mohammed and Bibi MunirBibi Munir, 70, and her husband Mohammed Munir, 77, of Lot 16 Good Hope, East Bank Essequibo (EBE) were killed in the fire following a botched robbery.Speaking with Guyana Times on Tuesday, Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum said that Police have one man in custody who is currently being questioned.Late Sunday evening, pandemonium broke out at Good Hope when several armed men invaded the premises of the two prominent rice farmers and after not being able to gain access to them, torched their house burning them alive.Eyewitnesses said that around 23:15h, gunshots were heard and upon investigation it was discovered that the house of the couple was on fire.Neighbours of the victims ran out of their homes to render assistance to the couple who were heard yelling for help.Residents of Good Hope as well as the Fire Service worked hard to save the couple, but all efforts proved futile as the grilled room that the couple had hidden in caved in trapping them inside.They subsequently burnt to death which the post-mortem examination confirmed.Meanwhile, the Indian Arrival Committee (IAC) in a release called for the haemorrhaging of innocent lives by crime to cease as this incident is the most recent in a spate of crimes in Guyana.The IAC, in forthrightly condemning these latest incidents, called upon the authorities to immediately implement effective security measures to curb these attacks on Guyanese.It is urging the authorities to ensure that security is given more importance as it believes that the fear that continues to be instilled in the hearts of the citizenry can no longer be tolerated.The Committee noted that it has expressed similar sentiments in the past for countermeasures to be implemented as swiftly as possible so as to stop the haemorrhaging of innocent lives.The IAC took the opportunity to express condolences to the immediate family and relatives of the victims and called on civil society to join in its call.Meanwhile, late Tuesday afternoon, Mahendra Persaud, of Wakenaam, Essequibo, lost his life in Georgetown after being attacked and robbed by an armed bandit (see story on page 14).last_img read more

GeoscienceBC launches H2S mapping project in Northeast B.C.

GeoscienceBC launches H2S mapping project in Northeast B.C.

first_img“Responsible natural resource development is a central tenet of Geoscience BC research,” said GeoscienceBC Executive Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer Carlos Salas. “This project will provide detailed maps of produced gases and isotopic analyses, as well as predictive maps of hydrogen sulphide distribution across northeast British Columbia. It will also include reservoir production models to help plan resource exploration and drilling programs.” FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – GeoscienceBC announced today that it is funding a new project in Northeast B.C. to map and predict sour gas – natural gas which can contain harmful and/or dangerous concentrations of hydrogen sulphide – or H2S.The project, which is titled “Distribution, origin, and implications of hydrogen sulphide in unconventional reservoir rocks in Western Canada with insights into the stratigraphic zonation and lateral variability of producible hydrocarbon liquids,” is being led by principal investigator Dr. Marc Bustin.Dr. Bustin, who is a professor with the University of British Columbia’s Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences, said that the project will map and predict the distribution of sour gas and hydrocarbon liquids in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin, including the active Montney, Doig, and Duvernay formations.- Advertisement -“The Montney, Doig, and Duvernay formations are important areas for natural gas activity, but the distribution of sour gas within these formations is complex,” said Dr. Bustin. “By mapping and predicting its location, natural gas production can be safer as well as easier and cheaper to plan.”Gas analyses and isotopic data for the study is being provided from industry partners and complimentary, additional analyses will be undertaken as part of the study.At low concentrations, hydrogen sulphide is colourless, flammable and smells like rotten eggs. At concentrations of greater than 100 parts per million it is potentially deadly and extremely corrosive.Advertisementlast_img read more

Chelsea doctor’s role to change significantly

Chelsea doctor’s role to change significantly

first_img Eva Carneiro 1 Chelsea’s first-team doctor Eva Carneiro will no longer be on the bench during matches with her role changing significantly at the club.As Saturday’s Premier League season opener against Swansea came to a close, manager Jose Mourinho became animated as Eden Hazard had to leave the field.That move left Chelsea with nine men temporarily and saw Mourinho publicly call his medical staff “impulsive and naive” after the 2-2 draw, saying they all need to “understand the game”.First-team doctor Carneiro took to Facebook to thank the “general public for their overwhelming support” in the wake of the comments which have been followed by a backroom rejig.Carneiro will remain as the club’s first-team doctor, but her role will change significantly and revolve around the Cobham training base.Most significantly, it is believed she will not now be involved in Chelsea matches and training sessions, raising questions over her long-term future.A Chelsea club spokesman said on the matter: “We do not comment on internal staffing matters”.Carneiro joined Chelsea in February 2009, having previously worked at the British Olympic Medical Institute and with England Women’s Football and UK Athletics.last_img read more

Fall’s the season to get serious at the box office

Fall’s the season to get serious at the box office

first_imgDuring the months between the summer blockbusters and the onslaught of holiday-season offerings, Hollywood is getting serious, and then it’s getting scary. September and October may not be the months when box office records are set, but fall is a time of year when more serious films can lure in sizeable audiences and horror-movie franchises absolutely flourish. Such high-profile dramas as “All the King’s Men,” “The Departed,” “The Black Dahlia,” “Babel” and “Hollywoodland” are getting most of the pre-release publicity, and all have big-name casts with Oscars on their mantels. “Fall is supposed to be about quality. This is the fine-dining experience of moviegoing versus the fast-food experience, which is more the summer,” said box office analyst Paul Dergarabedian, president of Exhibitor Relations Co. “This fall, to me, looks really great if these movies live up to the promise of their trailers.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhy these photogenic dumplings are popping up in Los Angeles“The Departed” reunites director Martin Scorsese with star Leonardo DiCaprio. Their previous collaborations, “The Gangs of New York” and “The Aviator,” were critical and commercial successes. The film also stars Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson and Mark Wahlberg. “King’s Men,” delayed from last winter, is based on a Robert Penn Warren novel and stars Sean Penn as a politician loosely based on Louisiana Gov. Huey Long. “Penn has a good track record when it comes to these serious dramas with Oscar potential, so that movie might do well,” said Gitesh Pandya, editor of BoxOfficeGuru.com. Co-starring with Penn is a team of heavy-hitters: Jude Law, Kate Winslet, James Gandolfini, Anthony Hopkins, Patricia Clarkson and Mark Ruffalo. “Fall is rarely a time for blockbusters,” said Brandon Gray, president of Box Office Mojo. “In fall 2005, there were no $100million movies, but once in a while, there might be one or two. But it seems like a good time a year to put these kinds of dramas out. `The Departed’ feels like a fall movie.”‘ “Hollywoodland,” which opens today, will explore the life and death of George Reeves, who was television’s Superman. Ben Affleck plays Reeves, Diane Lane is his romantic interest, and Adrien Brody portrays an investigator convinced Reeves’ “suicide” was really murder. On the subject of murder, the Sept.15 release of “The Black Dahlia” is about one of Los Angeles’ most notorious unsolved murder mysteries and stars Scarlett Johanson, Josh Hartnett, Aaron Eckhart and two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank. Gray said he thinks “Dahlia” will be “a hard sell.” But he and other prognosticators agree the movie that will have the most momentum in September, and possibly into October, is the summer word-of-mouth hit “Little Miss Sunshine.” The Fox Searchlight release about a dysfunctional family on a road trip had grossed $33.7million as of Sunday after six weeks of a gradually widening release. It stars Greg Kinnear, Toni Collette and Steve Carell, among others. “It looks like `Little Miss Sunshine’ is gaining steam each week,” Pandya said. “I think it will remain a contender through the month of September and possibly longer. When you catch that kind of lightning in a bottle, you start broadening your audience, and it’s become the `it’ movie.” In the comedy department, Paramount Pictures should have a solid hit with “Jackass: Number Two” out Sept.22, while “Scrubs” star Zach Braff will try to replicate his “Garden State” success with the romantic comedy “The Last Kiss,” which bows Sept.15. In late October, Brad Pitt will show up in the low-key thriller “Babel,” his first big-screen appearance since last year’s “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” which co-starred his real-life love, Angelina Jolie. “Babel” also stars Cate Blanchett and Gael Garcia Bernal. However, October is expected to be ruled by horror franchises with “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning” (Oct.4), “The Grudge 2” (Oct.13), and “Saw III” (Oct.27). “All three of these films should clean up, and there is no better month for horror films than October,” Pandya said. “The only thing we have to worry about is if any of them eat into each other’s business.” greg.hernandez@dailynews.com (818) 713-3758160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The High Kings Easter concert is set to be ‘glorious’

The High Kings Easter concert is set to be ‘glorious’

first_imgThe High Kings will be bringing their Grace & Glory tour to Jackson’s Hotel Ballybofey this Easter Monday.The legendary folk and trad band will be performing on April 17th as part of their Ireland Tour on the back of their successful sixth album, Grace & Glory.Almost ten years ago, four Irish singers, performers and songwriters decided to take a calculated risk. The constituent parts of The High Kings – Finbarr Clancy, Brian Dunphy, Martin Furey and Darren Holden – each had a wealth of history in the music business behind them, but knew that in order to maintain any level of creative interest they would have to boldly go where no other Irish ballad group had gone before. In truth, back in the mid-late Noughties, Ireland needed a group like The High Kings. The heyday of ballad groups such as The Clancy Brothers and The Dubliners was a distant memory for generations of music fans, and to have another bunch of Irish lads taking up the baton and continuing the tradition was great news to thousands of fans worldwide.“We could sing well, play our instruments well and harmonise well,” says Darren Holden, humbly underselling somewhat the numerous skill sets of the individual members.“People were looking for guys with character, presence – not just cardboard cut-outs – so the respective experience we all had wasn’t just helpful but essential.” The four members immediately knew that something special was taking place (“we knew within the space of a few songs that there was magic”), and within months had clicked as a creative unit as well as friends.So in 2013 the group released their third studio album ‘Friends For Life’, which featured original songs among the traditional fare.According to Darren, The High Kings stepped out of the shadows by taking the original songwriting route.“We were delighted! We felt the songs were really good, and we sensed it was the next step. We finally sensed we were about to embark on a new chapter for The High Kings, rather than repeat the approach.”To say that The High Kings are charting a new course for Irish ballad music – equal parts rousing and reflective, energetic and insightful – is an understatement. They are, essentially, marking out a new and bright era for Irish folk music, and aiming to bring a broad demographic along for the journey.“With ‘Grace & Glory’ we’re going to achieve that,” affirms Martin. “There is something for everybody on the album, and any doubters out there might just discover there’s a whole lot more to us than perceptions would have them believe. “Previous High Kings albums have been stepping-stones, but this one sees us on top of things.
