He shot 6-of-10 from three while also grabbing 10 rebounds to lead TNT to back-to-back wins.But as much as coach Nash Racela was happy with the way the 6-foot-7 performed, he’s wishing that the former National University Bulldog will be able to do similar performances consistently.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“It won’t be his birthday every day.

We have the playoffs as our goal and we want to use this victories as our leverage to make it to the top four and get the twice-to-beat advantage,” Rosario said.That’s the reason for Rosario’s tireless effort in TNT’s practices, something that didn’t go unnoticed.“I think it’s just a product of Troy’s hard work. He takes a lot of shots before practice, and then even after practice, he’s left in the gym to take more shots. So I’m not really surprised with the way he shot today,” Racela said.The second overall pick in the 2015 PBA Draft, however, noted that the KaTropa can’t be satisfied with this performance as they aim to shoot better from downtown.“Coming into this game, we ranked last when it comes to three-point field goals. Our coaches have been telling us that we need to shoot smarter, so we should be more responsible with our possessions and it showed today,” said Rosario after TNT shot a conference-best 18 threes in the win.ADVERTISEMENT Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours LATEST STORIES Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacsonlast_img read more

Many Question LACC’s Fairness against Indicted Officials

first_imgIn the wake of A plethora of rebuttals and clarifications against the recent announcement by the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission, LACC, against several government officials, its chairman Cllr. James Verdier has come under sharp criticism by several Liberians interviewed by the Daily Observer.Many of those interviewed last week in Monrovia questioned the credibility of the LACC, wondering if Cllr. Verdier has not been manipulated by those who may have issues with the accused.The LACC Chairman on October 23, at a  regular press briefing at the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism, indicted several present and past government officials for allegedly misapplying millions of United States dollars intended for development programs and operations.James Dorbor, 26, of Monrovia told the Daily Observer, “How could most of the people the LACC accused come out to challenge the decision? Is the LACC’s action a witch-hunt as former NOCAL boss Clemenceau Urey has indicated?” Dorbor said from the explanations so far, if the LACC had engaged in due diligence in its research and subsequent conclusion, “the LACC would have known that what happened at NOCAL was the modus operandi with the Senators.”Related to Dorbor’s position is the fact that five other members, including the Ministry of Justice that voted to approve the payment under question were not accused, according to Theresa Kun of Central Monrovia. “Does this not suggest that not much due diligence was carried out by Chairman Verdier and his workers?”In a telephone interview,Thomas Seeyon of West Point, regretted that in its attempt to unearth  corruption, the LACC is engaged in a smear campaign against Liberians whose sacrifices, said Seeyon, are so immense in the country’s reconstruction. “For men like Speaker Alex Tyler and LPRC’s T. Nelson Williams to be brought into disrepute is sad and unfair,” he noted in disgust, adding, “I don’t think Cllr. Verdier’s role is to create confusion by hurting the hard earned image of distinguished Liberians?”A resident of Logan Town told the Daily Observer that Rep. Adolf Lawrence’s clarification and threat to take the LACC to court indicates that the Commission did not exhaust its research on the case in question.“I share the opinion of Rep. Lawrence that the Commission may have inadvertently distorted the facts,” he said, accusing the LACC Chairman of using the institution as a political tool rather than a professional entity.When contacted, a source at the LPRC told the Daily Observer that Mr. Williams fully cooperated with the Solicitor General’s office at the Justice Ministry by submitting all relevant documents but was shocked to learn of Mr. Williams’ indictment.Though many of those interviewed sympathized with the LACC in its fight against corruption and its practices, they however indicated that the manner in which  Chairman Verdier’s LACC has handled its report suggests an element of unfairness to those whose names the Commission has brought into disrepute.Many who talked to the Daily Observer  appealed to the LACC to go beyond brewing controversy, and be more organized and professional in exercising its duties.Others who accused the LACC are Miatta Beysolow, former Minister of Commerce, Milton Teahjay, Superintendent of Sinoe County, Alex Tyler, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Adolph Lawrence, Representative District # 15, David Kortie, publisher of the FlashPoint newsletter, Josephus S. Keita, Public Relations Officer at the Ministry of Public Works, Foday Kromah and Amos Koon, both employees of the Ministry of Finance, among others.When contacted yesterday, LACC’s public relations officer, Ben Kolako, said: “The Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) is aware and takes note of a series of sponsored propaganda in the media against the Commission by individuals opposed to the government’s anti-corruption fight. These individuals have planted paid agents in the media to discredit and misrepresent the LACC following a MICAT press briefing by the Executive Chairperson to update the people of Liberia on the status of corruption cases.“Such propaganda is allegedly being orchestrated by some accused persons or their paid agents. They have allegedly dished out money to these paid agents as a result of a midnight meeting held on the Robertsfield highway, with the intent to weaken and discredit the Commission’s resolve to pursue the prosecution of individuals accused of corrupt practices.“The LACC stands by its report, and therefore wishes to assure the public and its partners that it remains resolute and unshakable in the fight against corruption and will ensure that the accused are brought to justice,” Mr. Kolako declared.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘My reaction was wrong’ – Liverpool captain Gerrard apologises for shock red card against Man United

first_img Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard 1 Steven Gerrard has apologised for his dramatic red card during Liverpool’s heated 2-1 defeat to rivals Manchester United, saying he had let his “team-mates, manager and supporters down”.The Reds captain surprisingly began the game on the bench but was called into action at half-time to inject some steel into his side’s struggling midfield.However, the former England international lasted just 43 seconds before being sent back down the tunnel for a stamp on Ander Herrera.It was a disappointing swansong in what was his last meeting with the club’s fiercest rivals before he heads to Major League Soccer in the summer, and Gerrard fronted up to media following the final whistle.“I need to accept it, the decision was right, I have let my team-mates and manager down today, even more importantly I let all the supporters down and I take full responsibility for my action,” the skipper told Sky Sports.“I tried to jump his [Herrera’s] tackle, I saw his studs and I reacted wrong.“I’ve been in the game long enough to know when you do something like that, especially at the timing of the game, at half-time with 45 to play, a great opportunity to get back in the game, I take full responsibility for it.”Asked what caused his anger to boil over, Gerrard added: “I don’t know. Probably, just the reaction to the initial tackle.“I don’t think I should say too much more on it, I came to speak to apologise to everyone in the dressing room, all the supporters, all the players because I take full responsibility for today’s result.”last_img read more


first_imgA Donegal schoolgirl has completed an amazing Lego video which took her a whopping 40 hours to make.Fourteen year old Neve Scanlan from Deele College in Raphoe has wowed her classmates and teachers with the mini-film. The video, which can be seen on the school website,, was carried out as part of an English assignment, where she was asked to create a trailer for the film, ‘Of Mice and Men.’The John Steinbeck classic was studied by Neve and her classmates and each student had to use their own original ideas to create a presentation. However, it was Neve’s video that caught everyone’s attention, with its originality and clever editing.The trailer is presented through the medium of Lego characters, who act out some of the scenes from the film, while the audio is taken from the film itself.Neve took a whopping 540 photos for the project, which took fifteen hours in total. She also spent three hours designing the sets for the video, which were made from Lego. After all of this, she then had to spend twenty-five hours editing the shots and making sure it was synced with the audio. All of this took both great dedication and skill. Neve says that she was first shown how to do this by her dad, who works in computers and she also did video editing during her time with the Raphoe Scouts. Despite her dad’s knowledge in the area, she insists that this was a solo effort and she received no help throughout the process. She says she loves working with Lego because it is so versatile.“When we were given the options for the project, I picked the video straight away because I have such an interest in videos and in editing. I used Lego because it’s so different and you can do so much with it. I really enjoyed doing the video and during it, you’re thinking about how film-makers would shoot scenes and the different ways of getting the message across.”Principal, Joe Boyle was delighted with Neve’s efforts, saying that this type of work highlights the benefits of the new Junior Cert syllabus, which places an emphasis on independent learning and originality.“The video is spectacular, I was shocked at how well it was put together and by how much effort went into the project. The new Junior Cert places a large emphasis on the acquisition of skills, outside of reading and writing and this is the perfect example. Neve has shown great creativity and originality and through the new system, she will be rewarded for this work.”Neve says that she has plans in the future to work in the world of film making and film editing and with this type of work at her age, who would bet against it?DDTV: SEE DONEGAL GIRL’S AMAZING 40 HOUR LEGO VIDEO! was last modified: January 14th, 2016 by StephenShare 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:deele collegedonegalLegoNeve ScanlanRaphoelast_img read more

Medical Matters: What is Impetigo and how can it be treated?

first_imgThis week Dr Ciaran Roarty of Scally McDaid Medical Practice Letterkenny explains what Impetigo is and how it can be treated.Impetigo is a very common skin infection which usually (though not always) affects children. It is caused by bacteria and is very contagious. Simple touching can spread it from one child to another. It can occur on healthy skin (primary Impetigo) or it may affect a part of the skin that is already broken ( secondary Impetigo) – for example a cut or skin with eczema or psoriasis. Underlying conditions such as Diabetes Mellitus or immunosuppression (for example from chemotherapy) predispose to Impetigo. The most common form of impetigo encountered is Non- bullous Impetigo. Tiny blisters form initially which usually burst quite quickly leaving scabby patches on the skin that appear like moist golden crusts.  Underneath the skin is red and inflamed. The face is the usual site of infection but it can affect anywhere really on the skin. Bullous Impetigo has large blisters which peel of leaving red raw areas underneath. This is more likely if you have another skin condition such as eczema. TreatmentAlthough it may resolve itself within a few weeks, we generally treat Impetigo because it is so contagious. Topical antibiotic creams are used for small patches  while an oral antibiotic suspension or tablets may be used if the rash is very widespread, if your immune system is suppressed or if you are feeling generally unwell. Oral antibiotics may also be used if the rash is spreading despite the use of creams or if it returns after being treated. Avoiding passing Impetigo on to others is equally important so it is vital that we try not to touch (or let children touch) the rash and wash our hands after applying any creams. Towels etc should not be shared and children should not attend school until 48 hours after antibiotic treatment has been initiated.Sometimes the treatment may not work because the bacteria causing  your Impetigo is actually resistant and your doctor may wish to do some tests to determine which antibiotic will actually work best.  If Impetigo recurs repeatedly it can be due to bacteria remaining and surviving inside the nose. Again your doctor may wish to do some tests to determine if this is the case and treat the nose also. The above information is intended as advice only and should you have any concerns contact your own Doctor. Dr Ciarán Roarty MB, BCh BAO MICGP DRCOG Grad. Cert. Obst.
