Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Point guard Alex Cabagnot had to leave the Beermen’s Wednesday practice earlier than usual after contracting allergies.Head coach Leo Austria said Cabagnot lasted around half an hour before the team chose to rush him to the nearest hospital in order to prevent the condition from worsening.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 crown“We just wanted to contain the allergies because if we don’t act on it further side effects might happen,” said Austria in Filipino at Acropolis Club House. “He already looked red during practice, so we decided to send him to the hospital.”“I don’t know how he got it, he was practicing well and his shots were falling. Then, he started to get itchy and he manifested redness.” Cabagnot has been stellar for the Beermen in the two games they’ve played in the championship series against the Magnolia Hotshots.The 2017 Commissioner’s Cup Finals MVP has been filling up the stat sheets for San Miguel norming numbers of 21 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 8.5 assists as the Beermen and Hotshots take a 1-1 series tie heading into the Holy Week break.Austria said he didn’t want to risk having Cabagnot finish the practice as he fears the allergy might affect his point guard’s breathing in the long run.“We’ll see if it’s a minor allergy, we can’t just let it pass because it might affect the upper respiratory system,” said Austria.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Recto seeks to establish Taal rehab body to aid community, eruption victims Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES In Liverpool, Man United sees the pain and path to recovery Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Children positioning themselves at traffic lights along major roadways in Guyana, either to “wash vehicles” for a small fee or to solicit monies is a major concern that urgently needs to be addressed.Traffic Chief Linden IslesThis is according to Traffic Chief Linden Isles, who – during a telephone interview with Guyana Times – stated that although these young children may not be obstructing traffic, the matter has to be dealt with.As such, he noted that while there was a Schools Welfare Department, under the auspices of the Education Ministry, that should be looking into such matters, the Traffic Department was willing to work along with the unit to address the issue.“What we can do is that we can have a word with the Schools Welfare Department about the very issue. Then we can see to come up with the best solution that can work to help these school-aged children to not be on the roads doing such. But it is really the Schools Welfare Department that handles issues with school-age children and such,” Isles explained.However, in recent years, it is not only school-age children who frequent the traffic lights’ locations so that they can solicit monies from drivers and passengers but also the elderly.Quite recently, persons have once again complained about “hot-spot traffic light begging” locations, such as Lamaha and Vlissengen Road, where mothers, along with their young children, beg for cash handouts from persons inside vehicles.At the DSL junction, heading towards the East Bank of Demerara (EBD), there is usually two to four homeless persons waiting for the traffic lights to turn red and even at the Eccles stoplight, EBD, drivers are often greeted by at least one other person on a regular basis.Additionally, at the Demerara Harbour Bridge junction on the East Bank Highway, it is a similar scenario.According to some drivers, such situations continue unabatedly and are spreading along the major roadways in Guyana.“They need to do something, whatever Ministry or Department that deals with these children and homeless folks need to try and get these people off of the road. Think about if there are careless drivers and accidents occur, these people can also be injured, or worse they can die. Even though they wait for the red light and may not be committing crimes for money they can lose their lives due to careless or drunk drivers too,” a taxi driver told this publication.In light of this, drivers are of the opinion that a law should be put in place to eliminate this growing trend thus giving the Police the authority to remove these persons if agencies responsible are failing to do so or cannot legally do so.
Administrative staff walking out of the RDC meeting following instructions by the REOThe Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) Regional Democratic Council (RDC) statutory meeting came to an abrupt end when Regional Executive Officer (REO) Dennis Jaikarran walked out of the meeting on Tuesday and instructed all regional staff to follow suit.At the time of the walkout, Government Councillor Nathram was addressing the RDC on the behaviour of the REO at the last sitting of the RDC. During Nathram’s presentation, the REO tried to dispute what the Councillor was stating, but was asked to take his seat and allow the Councillor to make his point.However, this angered Jaikarran, who then got up and instructed the administrative staff to leave the Anna Regina boardroom as he walked out of the meeting. Following the walkout, Nathram expressed much disappointment at the act, pointing out that the RDC has been unable to meet for the past two months. There has been tension between the REO and the Regional Vice Chairperson, Nandranie Coonjah, who has been acting in the capacity as chairperson since Chairman Devanand Ramdatt is on annual leave. However, according to Nathram, the REO has refused to recognise Coonjah as the acting chairperson.At the first meeting, there was no quorum; at the second sitting, the REO said he was not informed that the Chairman was proceeding on his annual leave and will not be participating in the meeting chaired by the acting regional chairperson.At Tuesday’s sitting, as Councillor Nathram tried to explain that in the absence of the Regional Chairman, the Vice Chairman is by law responsible for chairing the RDC, the REO attempted to rebut Nathram.Meanwhile, Coonjah said the RDC has decided to write the Communities Minister on the REO’s behaviour.
1 Randy Lerner will receive £30m after Aston Villa won promotion getty Former Aston Villa midfielder Thomas Hitzlsperger has told talkSPORT fans must abandon any dreams for the future until owner Randy Lerner is out of the club.The Villans are reportedly readying a mass squad clear out this summer as they start preparing for life in the Championship following their relegation from the top flight.But the Midlands club is in turmoil off the pitch as well as on it. They are still without a full-time manager, while a number of board members have resigned in recent weeks.Meanwhile, unpopular owner Lerner – who recently admitted their relegation ‘lies at my feet and no one else’s’ – has also confirmed he is still seeking to sell the clubAnd Hitzlsperger, who made over 100 appearances for the Villa, believes a takeover must happen BEFORE any next manager or new players talk can start.“It’s been tough for Aston Villa, not just this season but for the past few seasons,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“You can almost say we could see it coming. This season has been really depressing.“You can talk about new managers and new players coming in, but first of all Randy Lerner has to sell the club.“A new owner has to come in and change the club, get the fans on board again and hopefully come back up to the Premier League as quickly as possible.”
SACRAMENTO – Members of the Democratic-controlled Legislature set the stage Saturday night for the first on-time passage of California’s budget in 20 years, but Republicans warned that problems with the spending plan may doom the vote. The Legislature’s powerful budget conference committee voted 4-2, along party lines, to close out discussion on a compromise version of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s proposed $131.1 billion spending plan. The move sends to the full Assembly and Senate a budget, for the fiscal year beginning July 1, that lacks some of the core components Schwarzenegger trumpeted when releasing the plan last month. For example, instead of spending $1 billion of a tax windfall to pay off early a bond used to balance past budgets, Democrats propose putting the money in a fund that could be used to pay other costs next year. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2Democrats also rewrote the governor’s proposed budget to include money to expand children’s health care programs, cut some college tuition fees and give local school districts more say in how education dollars are spent. Schwarzenegger had wanted to earmark some of the money to restore music, art, physical education and other programs that had been cut in recent years. The budget also lacks money for public safety programs and preschool expansion that the governor had proposed. It was unclear Saturday how much the total new budget would be. “It’s done. The Democrat majorities in the Assembly and Senate have gotten their wish lists reconciled,” said Assemblyman Rick Keene, R-Chico, one of the two Republicans on the committee. “The budget, as is, goes backward on making progress on the deficit. We have no choice but to vote against it.” Both houses are expected to vote on the budget Thursday, the constitutional deadline to pass the budget. Lawmakers have failed to meet the June 15 deadline since 1986. Under state law, Schwarzenegger must sign the budget by July 1, but the last time a governor did so was in 2000. Senate Budget Chair Wesley Chesbro, D-Arcata, was more optimistic about this budget’s prospects. “Compared to the previous four years, we are much closer than we have been at this stage. The conference committee put many disagreements behind us and many issues to bed,” Chesbro said. “There is still the need for additional negotiations, but I see a spirit of cooperation on both sides to get it done.” H.D. Palmer, spokesman for the governor’s finance department, said the administration would spend the next few days evaluating the committee’s changes and their potential effect on the state’s bottom line. “I can say the committee did not address preschool and public safety programs that are important to the governor,” Palmer said. “It’s our hope that we will have a package that reflects the governor’s priorities that we can pass on an on-time basis.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

But for me it was not the right club, it was not the right moment.“To feel this – the right moment, the right coach, the right club.”Mane, 26, has had a very successful career at Anfield so far – scoring 36 goals in 76 Liverpool appearances including three goals in the Reds’ opening three games this season. Reds manager Jurgen Klopp claimed Mane should be considered as one of football’s elite players.Klopp said: “Now Sadio’s much more secure that this is his level. The players surprise themselves sometimes. ‘Wow, really? That’s how good I am?’ We all need to show our best and get used to it.“It’s quality. We have to make sure we can show that every week.“Who scores the goals is not too important but it was very important for us and very nice for him that he could do it in the last game.

Mobile phone users across Donegal will get cheaper phonecalls from today on.As of today the EU will cut roaming charges for people living in the border counties traveling through Northern Ireland.Deputy Joe McHugh has welcomed the move saying some roaming charges will drop by as much as half from today on. “With the number of people travelling throughout Europe increasing, either for work, family purposes or just for leisure, there was a very high demand for a reduction in roaming charges.“Many people living in border counties, who are travelling regularly, sometimes even daily, through Northern Ireland, this will have a very positive impact on their phone costs.“Under the new charges, the cost of data roaming will be down from 40 to 20 cents per megabyte (plus VAT), making a call will be down from 24 cents a minute to 19 cents a minute and sending a text will go from 8 cent a text to 6 cent a minute.“While there are still calls across Europe for the complete end to roaming charges across Europe, this reduction is a positive step and will help those away from home to stay in touch with family or reduce the costs for small businesses who need to travel for work,” he said. A full list of the new charges can be found below –• Type of mobile activity in the EU 2013 caps (before VAT) 2014 caps (before VAT) Decrease• Making a call 24 cents per min 19 cents per min 21%• Receiving a call 7 cents per min 5 cents per min 28.5 %• Sending a text message 8 cents 6 cents 25 % • Downloading data / browsing 45 cents per MB 20 cents per MB 55.5 %DONEGAL PHONE USERS TO GET CHEAPER CALLS FROM TODAY was last modified: July 1st, 2014 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:deputy joe mchughdonegalMOBILE PHONEroaming charges
