The Filipinos salvaged their last cage medal, a bronze in 1998. Then the plunge to mediocrity started as teams from the Middle East boosted the Asiad cage roster.Gilas Pilipinas actually has a strong shot at the gold if the country decides to take the Asiad basketball campaign seriously. With the national team standouts keeping themselves fit due to the ongoing World Cup qualifying, Reyes won’t have conditioning problems if his boys are also tapped for the Indonesia cagefest.And if Andray Blatche becomes eligible, unlike in Incheon when he was replaced by Douthit, he would certainly be an Asiad asset for Gilas. Another possible Gilas reinforcement is Fil-German Christian Stanhardinger, who is joining San Miguel Beer in the coming PBA Commissioner’s Cup.After the second World Cup qualifying game with Australia, Reyes will also have the Jones Cup set in mid-July to test the Asiad bets.So, how about it Chot?ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Truck driver killed in Davao del Sur road accident Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

The Homecoming-pt. 2

first_imgAfter a surprisingly comfortable encounter with Liberian customs, Onyx made his way to what he figured was the arrival terminal. He couldn’t really remember anything about the airport from the time he was 14. He passed through the exit and walked straight to the nearest ‘money-changer.’ His Facebook friends had given him a heads-up about the exchange rate between the U.S. and Liberian dollars. He was fully prepared for the young man’s deception. The money changer told him the rate was LD$60 for every US$1.What he didn’t expect was for someone to come to his aid; especially not the character that showed up. A man as tall as himself, but nowhere near as big, walked to the money changer and said in a voice as blunt and heavy as a sledgehammer “My man! Stop dat ting! You tink you helping Liberia like dat? You can’t see dis man na real white man?”   The money changer blinked rapidly in apparent disbelief. Onyx couldn’t tell whether it was from being caught trying to con him, or because he was taking in the man’s bizarre appearance.The tall, lithe, chocolate-complexioned man wore a leopard print Persian turban on his head with green horn-rimmed shades. As if that was not strange enough, he added a bright orange velvet dinner jacket with matching shorts to the mix. His choice in footwear helped complete the eccentric package, as silver penny-loafers adorned his feet.“Why you people can’t do deh right ting? Eh?” he asked the absolutely dumbstruck money changer. The money changer looked away from Onyx, apparently defeated by the words of the stranger, and said, “Sorry popay, deh rate da 86 LD for U.S.”The odd man turned to Onyx and removed his shades, revealing eyes that would weaken the bladders of most tourists. They had a feral quality that screamed “basket-case.”  Against all of his better judgment, Onyx felt he could trust this man. He held out his hand to the man and said, “I’m Onyx; Onyx Togbah.”The man grabbed Onyx’s hand, smiled and shook it vigorously, responding, “My name Kerkula; Kerkula Mulbah, and I’m a taxi driver and fellow Kpelleh man.” Onyx now understood the reason for this stranger’s—Kerkula’s—intervention. He did not mind though. After the way he him saw handle the money changer, Kerkula Mulbah’s obvious street smarts might be just what he needed.“Kerkula,” Onyx said, “If we can come to a compromise on the matter of payment, you may have just gotten yourself hired as my personal guide.”Kerkula took Onyx’s bag and they walked side by side across the airport’s parking lot until they stood next to a canary yellow Toyota. Opening the door, he looked at Onyx and said, “From Montseraddo to Nimba, you will na find nobody who know LIB like me!”“Good,” Onyx said, “I am going to Gbartala in 3 days to find my father. I need someone who knows the terrain.” Kerkula sat down and pressed the button releasing his taxi’s automatic locks, looked at Onyx from the driver’s seat, adjusted his turban and said, “T-rain; Q-rain; and Z-rain. My brother I know all the rains dem! Sit down and get ready to find you pa!”Day 1The next morning, at a clean and cheap hotel Kerkula carried him to in the Monrovia neighborhood of Sinkor, Onyx was ready to “hit the ground running.” He felt like everything was falling into place thanks to his new ally.Kerkula Mulbah was quite possibly the most interesting person Onyx had ever met. For one thing, the man’s fashion taste only got more eccentric. He picked Onyx up from the hotel with a maroon fez on his head while wearing the Bayern Munich football club’s full kit. Just as before, his strange choice of shoes completed the image. This time it was a pair of fire-truck red hiking boots.Kerkula walked up to him, practically shouting at the top of his voice, “Oh-nees! My man, we need to get you some basic material.” Onyx knew Kerkula was right, it was important to be prepared for any eventuality. He needed to find a supermarket to buy water, toiletries, and a few healthy snacks.They got into his taxi and started the first day’s tour of Monrovia. Kerkula’s taxi was so clean you could eat off of the dashboard. Onyx became slightly ashamed when he thought of his dusty document-filled old Alfa-Romeo back in Ohio.“So?” Kerkula asked while driving, “What kinda work you do in America?” Onyx felt his face flush with embarrassment. His last stable job had been over a year ago, helping restore old paintings at an art gallery. Now he worked out of his car as a house painter. He knew he could lie to Kerkula, but he didn’t want to. He was aware of how some second generation Africans lied about their level of success to relatives back home; he did not want to be like them. “I’m a painter,” he said, adding “I paint everything from houses to pictures.”Kerkula looked at Onyx and turned the tassel on his fez to the right. He said, “My man, da good honest work. Anyting da can feed your family,” he said.“I will you carry to my house and let my woman prepare some dumboy for you later,” said Kerkula with such authority that it felt more like an order than an invitation. Not that Onyx minded. He realized that he had just made a friend.————–Eight hours later they were on their way to Kerkula’s house in Jacob Town. They had spent the day driving all over Monrovia so Onyx could become reacquainted with the capital city. Onyx was stunned how things had barely changed since he was a kid. Of course there were cosmetic changes here and there—new stores and few new buildings—but almost everything was just as he remembered it. Unlike his muddled memories of the airport, looking at the city was like being in a time warp.In Onyx’s opinion, this was not a bad thing. Liberia was still a country of breathtaking beauty. That beauty juxtaposed with the obvious scars of the decade-plus civil war just reinforced the image he had of the country’s mystical quality.He had gone with Kerkula from Broad Street to the city’s many beaches. While they were doing this, he learned that Kerkula was an ex-combatant. He did not say it to impress or boast. He explained it as matter-of-factly as Onyx had when he talked about his job. Onyx reciprocated by telling Kerkula more about his father, his two failed marriages and the best thing he had done with his life; his 12 year old daughter Yamma.They wrapped up their long conversation as they pulled up the driveway of Kerkula’s house. His home was a cozy little white building surrounded by bushes, with a coconut tree in the yard. The second Kerkula parked his car and turned off its engine, he was crushed by the embraces of four startlingly attractive kids. The group consisted of one surly looking (was there any other kind?) teenage girl, 2-year-old twin boys, and their older adolescent brother who was the spitting image of Kerkula.Kerkula introduced his children in order of age, starting from the oldest. His daughter, Precious was tall for 14, but still shorter than her brother Enoch; who towered over her at the age of 12. The adorable identical twins were named—hilariously— Napoleon and Alexander.Onyx followed Kerkula and his kids into their home. When he got inside he went into the airy living room and sat down on it’s wonderfully cushioned bamboo furniture. A minute later, a short voluptuous dark-skinned woman in a flowing white gown entered the room with her hand extended in greeting, saying “How you do papa? My name Victoria, but my friends can call me Vic. Welcome to your home yeh?”  Onyx shook Vic’s hand and praised the cleanliness of her home. This sudden immersion in Kerkula’s domestic life made Onyx long for his daughter. He would have to call Yamma tomorrow. Family was the reason he was here.He needed his father. Yamma needed to meet her grandfather for the first time. He was shaken out of his reverie by Napoleon and Alexander who had decided he was a mountain that needed climbing. “Come let’s eat!” they said in unison. Looking down at their cherubic little faces, he replied, “Lead the way.”He sat down to the wonderfully spread table and looked at the smiling faces of the Mulbah family. He wanted what they had. He would find his father. He would make everything right. He made this promise to himself and before God as Kerkula told everyone to bow and say grace.…To be continued.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Skeldon continues to face hardships after closure of sugar estate

first_imgThe Skeldon Sugar Estate has been the main source of income in the Upper Corentyne area but since its closure in 2017, the livelihoods of the sacked workers and their families have fallen apart.The closed sugar estateThe closed sugar estateA frustrated resident speaks to Guyana TimesA recent visit to Skeldon proved that families are still trying to make ends meet as they shared their sentiments on the effect the closure has had on them.A market vendor disclosed that she has not made a profit from her vegetables because people in the area cannot afford to purchase those items.“All my customers are out of a job, because of the closure of the Skeldon Estate and my products goes to waste”, the vendor explained. She added that the fishermen are keeping the area alive but a lot of people remain unemployed.A known businessman of the Skeldon area also expressed similar sentiments. “This estate has affected everyone, it is not easy to have employees on your payroll when your profit is so little, it is only me and my wife to run our business”, the businessman stated.Operating his business at a loss, the businessman told Guyana Times that he is considering closing down his business since it is slowly dying in a dying Skeldon area.A group of pensioners took some time to share their views on this issue and they also related the hardships they face on a daily basis.“I am a pensioner and this issue not only affecting me but the smallest school child, books are so expensive these days”, one pensioner disclosed. His colleague, who was also discreet in giving name and designations, shared similar views.“Imagine this present Government has members who grow up in Berbice and they are not doing enough for us, how can they take away we income?” he asked.Most of the respondents who shared their views on this issue were totally disappointed in the state of the Skeldon/Corriverton area.Members of the community stated that Corriverton was one of the brightest areas, the markets, roadways and supermarkets used to be filled.Things have changed since the main source of income has been taken away. The market vendors continue to cry as well as businessmen and young unemployed individuals.A father of three also explained how he has been hurting since he has been out of employment since the closure of the sugar estate. “I took a work pulling lumber and only $4000 I gaining, this cannot do to feed my children on a weekly basis”, the father explained.Meanwhile, an elderly citizen explained that this issue should not be of race, but of economics. Taking away the sugar estate from Skeldon has not done any good for anyone in the Skeldon area. “If the estate is closed, a replacement institute should have been in place for all those unemployed and broke workers”, he stated.Another businessman at the upper-part of Skeldon, asked how things will get better, and how the money will circulate if the main income has been taken away. The money is simply not circulating and business has been on the lower side of things in the area. This estate has left many unemployed, people from the Skeldon area onto Eversham have suffered the consequences of the closure of the sugar estate.Members of the Skeldon area are calling for a better standard of living, reopening of the sugar estate and for employment to all. Unemployed youngsters have been involved in crime and it is not doing the community any good.last_img read more

Bayern maintain iron-grip as Leipzig falter

first_img0Shares0000Leipzig’s head coach Ralph Hasenhuettl’s squad have struggled to meet the demands of having to play virtually every three days in recent weeks © AFP/File / ROBERT MICHAELBERLIN, Germany, Dec 13 – RB Leipzig risk falling off the pace in the pack chasing run-away Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich with their coach Ralph Hasenhuettl admitting his side is flagging.“We’re running close to empty and you can see the team is torturing itself,” said Hasenhuettl after his team scraped a 1-1 draw on Tuesday to just hold onto second place in the table. The Austrian’s youthful squad have struggled to meet the demands of having to play virtually every three days in recent weeks, but now have just one game left before the Bundesliga breaks for winter.Last week’s 2-1 home defeat against Besiktas meant they bowed out of the Champions League in the group stages and will face Napoli in the last 32 of the Europa League in February.“It is especially difficult for our younger players. In this three-day rhythm, which goes on and on, you lose your power at some point,” admitted midfielder Kevin Kampl.Leipzig are at risk of being caught by their league chasing rivals.They have taken only five points in as many games while Bayern have tightened their iron-grip on first place by winning seven of their last eight Bundesliga games.Jupp Heynckes’ Bavarians could open a ten-point gap if they beat bottom side Cologne and third-placed Schalke fail to beat Augsburg on Wednesday.Leipzig are currently on 28 points, but Schalke, Dortmund, Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Moenchengladbach are all within three points behind.In Wolfsburg on Tuesday, Leipzig struggled to get back on level terms after Paul Verhaegh slotted an early penalty for the hosts.Hasenhuettl’s side finally got the break when Marcel Halstenburg equalised on 52 minutes.However in the closing stages, goalkeeper Peter Gulasci pulled of a string of saves as Divock Origi, on loan from Liverpool, nearly restored Wolfsburg’s lead.Leipzig then had defender Dayot Upamecano sent off in injury time for a second yellow card and the French teenager is suspended for Sunday’s visit of Hertha Berlin in Leipzig’s final Bundesliga game of 2017.“Against, Hertha, we want to show some of our old strength again,” said Kampl.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

GARDAI QUIZ SUSPECT AFTER THREATS TO DONEGAL COUNCILLOR

first_imgExclusive: Donegal Gardai investigating death threats against a councillor have interviewed a suspect, Donegal Daily can reveal.It comes after a fire which destroyed a house at Parkhill outside Ballyshannon earlier this week.A Garda spokesman would only say that officers are investigating what they called a ‘threatening mail’ received by a local representative. It’s understood the councillor received a package to his home which he found ‘extremely upsetting.’Donegal Daily can reveal a man has been interviewed in relation to the incident and a file is being prepared for the DPP.Cllr Sean McEniff has been under huge pressure since objecting to the €230,000 house being bought by the council to house a Traveller family of 12.He had condemned those behind the arson attack; but he has refused to withdraw comments in which he said Travellers should be housed together. However Cllr McEniff says he was NOT the councillor who received any threats.The latest development comes as national attention continues to highlight attitudes towards Travellers in Co Donegal. GARDAI QUIZ SUSPECT AFTER THREATS TO DONEGAL COUNCILLOR was last modified: February 14th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:GARDAI QUIZ SUSPECT AFTER THREATS TO DONEGAL COUNCILLORlast_img read more
