NSAs take heed: How did golf do it? Eliminate politics, lobbying, says golf chief Lorenzo

first_imgJAKARTA—National Golf Association of the Philippines president Martin Lorenzo, a long-time, low-key sports patron, loves to cook. And as a brilliant businessman, he made billions off his delectable dishes.ADVERTISEMENT Those twin gold medals are worth a staggering P12 million, with Saso to get P8 million—P6 million for the individual and another P2 million for her share in the team incentive.“Money is a double-edged sword,” Lorenzo said. “On one hand, it can be used for education, advanced training and establishing a support team that can take your golf game to the next level,” he said. “This is what I would advise Yuka to do with her prize money.”“On the other hand, money can also bring all sorts of dubious characters out of the woodwork to try and get a piece of the prize,” he added. “Yuka and her family should be very wary of these sycophants, who will be nothing but distractions in her career.”Saso should listen. Lorenzo has been as scrutinizing at the helm of the NGAP, and look where the sport is now.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next “We’re running close to P3 million in expenses just for the preparation for this tournament alone,” NGAP secretary general Bones Floro, a trusted Lorenzo lieutenant who was also the non-playing skipper for both squads, told the Inquirer.“Whatever the players want, we got for them—equipment, tournament exposure, plane fares, everything,” Floro said.“It is said that great talent needs great management to be successful,” Lorenzo said.Yuka Saso won the individual gold and with Bianca Pagdanganan and Lois Kaye Go, won the team championship, a first for the country in Asiad golf achieved by a prodigious trio with an average age of 18.“These young ladies have yet to enter their peak athletic years, and as they grow in maturity and experience, their potential to excel in the international arena—in the LPGA and even the Olympics (in 2020 in Tokyo)—is enormous,” Lorenzo said.ADVERTISEMENT Clutch putt helps Ababa steady roller-coaster round for Cebu Invitational crown MOST READ Peza offers relief to ecozone firms Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award DepEd’s Taal challenge: 30K students displaced ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins Palace OKs total deployment ban on Kuwait OFWs Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

Ex-workers, families forgotten in “callous” aftermath of estate closures – Ram

first_img…says teachers pooling money to fund school uniformsOutspoken political commentator and Charted Accountant Christopher Ram has described some of the harrowing tales that have resulted from the closures of several estates across country which came via Government’s downsizing of the sugar industry owing the billions of dollars in subsidised allocations. Speaking with Guyana Times during an interview on Tuesday, the attorney opined that the current Administration should have implemented the industry’s overhaul in a phased manner as opposed to the four closures within one year.Wales was officially closed in December 2016 and the closures of East Demerara (Enmore), Skeldon and Rose Hall were finalised by December 2017 although the latter three were reopened under limited operations via the National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited’s (NICIL) Special Purpose Unit (SPU).Since then, Ram has been facilitating a donation drive to the children of ex-workers of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo). The items have included bicycles, haversacks and stationery supplies. From his vantage point, the accountant imparted that the closures have facilitated social ills owing the fact the inhabitants of the various communities built their lives from their earnings in the sugar industry.“The people need employment; they need support and it seems that they’re almost forgotten and its cynical, it’s callous and it’s cruel. The problem in those areas is that they’re almost single industry communities which have been built for decades and decades around sugar and you can’t take away their lifeline, then very essence of the community and think that you have solved the problem and you’ve created some extremely costly social problems,” he observed. Ram also pointed out a disturbing scene whereby he saw persons fishing in nearby drains during one of his many visits and it was explained that this was for their sustenance.“I saw people catching fish in drains and I asked an adult what that child doing in that drain they said; ‘What you think, they na got to eat?’ That was the answer. This is misery and yes we would sit in Georgetown and drink champagne,” Ram highlighted.Speaking from a fiscal perspective, Ram pondered why the country’s budget deficit is higher in spite of the rationalisation objectives. He added that there was “no question” that some realignment was necessary in the sugar industry but said it not only should have been phased but well planned.“What we have is chaos, confusion and misdirection, particularly led by NICIL which has only added to the confusion,” he said.Ram outlined that based on the information he obtained, some of the children are inclined to miss classes as they lack school uniforms and lack basic meals. “Teachers are pooling money to give a meal to children. That child is a human being who is going to grow into an adult and what is he or she going to do?” he asked.Prior to the closures, observers including the political Opposition were calling for social impact studies to be conducted beforehand. Now that Government went ahead with its cost-cutting measures, many of the workers have held out that they are finding great difficulty in attaining well-paying and consistent employment. Some are of the view that these communities should be allocated subsidies for travel, text books, electricity and water owing to the vacuum that came to the fore when the industry was slashed. More than that, workers at Wales, were waiting almost two years for their severance pay due to their refusal to take up work at the Uitvlugt Estate which is 22 miles away from their homes. Though they were finally paid this month with interest, many parents said that in the interim they could not have afforded to send their children to school on a consistent basis.

Why are there so many empty seats at the Sweden v England game?

first_imgAs a result, there were 10,000 tickets sold back to FIFA by disgruntled Germans but many tickets were still left unsold.You can check out England’s confirmed team for the game against Sweden by following this link.For live coverage of the Sweden v England quarter-final clash from Russia, head over to talkSPORT for live coverage from the 42,000-capacity Samara Arena.Listen to our live commentary of all the action through talkSPORT.com here. 2 There could be as little as 2,800 England fans in Samara this afternoon As a result, there could be at least 10,000 empty seats in the ground by the time the game kicks off.According to Kaveh Solekhol of Sky Sports News, 32,000 tickets have been sold for the 42,000-capacity stadium.Nearly 3,000 of those are England fans, with their European rivals slightly outnumbering them. England’s biggest match in almost thirty years is being played out in front of thousands of empty seats.After beating Colombia in the previous round, Three Lions fans faced the daunting task of travelling to the remote area of Samara.center_img Could be up to 10,000 empty seats at England v Sweden today. 32,000 tickets sold so far for 42,000 capacity stadium. 2836 England fans, 3000 Sweden. Lots of Germans in Samara… could have been playing here today— Kaveh Solhekol (@SkyKaveh) July 7, 2018Theoretically, this game should have been the fixture Germany were expected to play in.The 2014 winners were backed to win their group and progress to at least this stage of the competition.However, Joachim Low’s side crashed out at the group stages after suffering an embarrassing 2-0 defeat to South Korea in their final game. 2 Germany star Thomas Muller was in tears after a defeat to already-out South Korea meant they went home as well last_img read more

These England fans can’t believe who will captain the side against USA

first_img MONEY Ronaldo warned Lukaku how hard scoring goals in Serie A would be before Inter move Fabian Delph will lead England out at Wembley Secondly, it’s questionable whether Delph would even start the game unless it were an inconsequential friendly against the USA.The Manchester City man has made just three Premier League appearances for his club this season, but nevertheless he will captain his country on Thursday night.Gareth Southgate said: “Fabian is captaining his country for the first time and it is brilliant reward for him. He is an outstanding player and outstanding person. Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? Fabian Delph is to captain England tomorrow. I’m lost for words.— John Stockbridge (@jstockbridge1) November 14, 2018 BEST OF I know it’s a charity game, but how on earth is Fabian Delph the England captain!? He can’t get anywhere near the first 11 for Man City. Why not choose someone who’s actually playing regular? https://t.co/B0YoX5NfrI— luke palmer (@luke_palmer15) November 14, 2018 2 ADVICE RANKED REVEALED @GarethSouthgate Fabian Delph as captain? Are you mad?!— Mark Luckhurst™ (@MLUCKHURST09) November 14, 2018 Fabian Delph’s first experience as England captain will undoubtedly be a strange one.First of all, there is the small matter of record-goalscorer Wayne Rooney coming on to take the armband from him at some point. Latest Football News Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions Is tomorrow’s #ENGUSA game just for banter? Delph as captain and Rooney playing 🤔— Lewis Ainsworth (@Ainsy1985) November 14, 2018 Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade Nothing against Fabian Delph, quite like him as a player, but what a sad indictment of the English game when the England captain on Thursday can’t get a kick for his domestic side in the Premier League. #ThreeLions— Chris Brammer (@ChrisBramms) November 14, 2018 2 Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card Gareth Southgate has backed his skipper REVEALED huge blow Forbes list reveals how much Mayweather, Ronaldo and Messi earned this decade Delph..england captain?..hold on has he even played this season??— Stretford Post (@StretfordPost) November 14, 2018 “He is a huge leader within our group and I have really enjoyed working with him. You don’t give the England captaincy to someone unless you really think they can carry it and he has those outstanding attributes.”England fans on Twitter, however, weren’t so thrilled.Here are the best tweets: Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury Delph has made 2 starts and 1 sub appearance in the Premier League this season, totalling less than 170 minutes… @England captain!

Laying waste to holidays

first_imgUneaten fruitcakes, ill-fitting sweaters and the wrapping paper they come in may be gifts from the heart, but they end up in the same place – local landfills. Americans throw away 25 percent more trash between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, according to trash service provider Waste Management. Nationally, that amounts to about a million extra tons per week. Much of the extra waste comes from gift wrap and packaging, said Eric Rose, director of communications for Waste Management. “A lot of it is plastics,” Rose said, adding at least one in 10 pounds of trash is plastic. There is also more food waste from large meal preparations, and waste from parties – decorations, plastic utensils and paper plates. Grace Chan, assistant head of the Solid Waste Department for the County Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County, said the districts’ landfills, including Whittier’s Puente Hills Landfill, don’t really see an overall increase in trash coming to landfills around Christmas, but that may be because residential waste accounts for only one-third of the total wastestream at that landfill. Also, non-retail commercial and construction activity may slow down between Christmas and New Year’s Day, offsetting the increase in waste from homes. The Puente Hills Landfill receives about 325,000 to 350,000 Christmas trees every year, most which get ground up and used as landfill cover. “Sometimes we get more green waste than can use, so we use all we can on site, and send the rest to the composting facility,” said Mark Giljum, who coordinate’s the landfill’s Christmas tree program. “We get plenty of green waste, so we’re not in desperate need for Christmas trees for ground cover,” he said. Hacienda Heights environmentalist Jeff Yann said he and his wife used to mulch or compost their Christmas trees through a county program, but now have a plastic tree which they reuse. For those who use live trees, Yann said it is best to mulch or compost your tree rather than throw the tree away because even when used as a cover, it still ends up going into the landfill. As far as gifts goes, he tries to buy products with less packaging, but that’s often an uphill battle. “I think it’s hard for people to make decisions (in buying gifts) even if they have a problem with the way things are packaged,” he said. “The manufacturers don’t have to take any responsibility for their packaging, so they overpack.” Yann said his wife puts presents in colorful gift bags that don’t have to be torn to open the gift, so they can be reused. Yann himself does not wrap gifts at all, he said, but not for environmental reasons. “That’s just laziness,” he said. shirley.hsu@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2306 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
